THE Duke and Duchess of Sussex COULD return to the UK to make an appearance at a party in honour of Princess Diana which is due to take place on Tuesday.

As many as 100 guests, including Prince William and Elton John, are expected to attend the celebration. The party was initially planned for the unveiling of the Princess Diana statue.

It will take place at Kensington Palace, and Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are weighing up whether or not to attend.

Meanwhile, a book claims that Harry looked on the verge of tears after he and Meghan were "snubbed" at their last appearance as senior royals.

Their last duty was to attend a Commonwealth Day service at Westminster Abbey alongside the likes of the Queen, Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge.

However, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex were not included in the entrance procession and it is claimed that "the snub in black and white – set out for all to see."

    'It could be a disaster' (Continued…)

    Attorney Andrew B. Brettler says the accuser had entered into a "settlement agreement" that would end her current claim against the prince.

    But Ms Levin said: "That's a dead end as well.

    "It's just not going to go away."

    She said the suit is affecting the Royal Family "very badly" – and no matter what the outcome, the damage to Andrew's reputation will be "permanent".

    "Here's the prince, the second son of Her Majesty, and he's just going on and on and pretending in his rather pompous way he's above all this nonsense," she said.

    Despite a series of PR catastrophes in recent years, Andrew was reportedly so confident the case would collapse that he was plotting a return to the royal frontline.

    One source said: “There has been a dramatic shift in mood and the reality that this could not only go on for many months, if not years, as well as costing potentially millions of pounds is very real.”

    Prince Andrew faces ‘disaster’

    The Duke of York's "car crash" Newsnight interview – in which he bizarrely claimed he doesn't sweat – should warn him off giving evidence, Angela Levin says.

    Writer Ms Levin, who has penned an authorised biography of Prince Harry, says Andrew had just three options to explore ahead of the civil case.

    Speaking on talkRADIO this morning, Ms Levin said: "One was to ignore it, pretend it didn't happen, he didn't know anything about it.

    "We've seen that hasn't worked – it hasn't gone away. He thought it would all disappear into the night. It hasn't.

    "The second one was to go to America and answer all the questions and nit-pick apart the accusations, which is quite dangerous.

    "Remember how he was on Newsnight and then think of him on the stand, giving evidence.

    "I think it would be a disaster for him.

    "The third one is to try to worm out the fact that his accuser doesn't have a case."

    The ‘magic touch’

    The Duke, 37, has the "magic touch" when it comes to his daughter Lilibet, and he has a handy little hack to rock her off to sleep, according to US royal sources.

    "Harry adores Lili and loves reading her bedtime stories and rocking her to sleep," a US source reportedly told Us Weekly.

    “He has a real magic touch. There’s just so much love and gratitude and they couldn’t ask for more.”

    Royal watchers are yet to see young Lilibet, but proud mum Meghan recently described her as "beautiful" during the couple's work trip to New York.

    Will George ever be King?

    The Royal Family “may never see Prince George become King”.

    Royal commentator Daniela Elser has pinpointed how the turmoil facing the Firm didn’t make a “pretty picture” for its future.

    Speaking about the change that will happen in the coming years as the Queen’s reign ends, she said: “When that mournful day comes, we might not be only saying goodbye to a truly iconic figure but farewelling the last and final Queen of the UK.

    “It will be up to her son, grandson and great-grandson what comes next; they will be fighting for nothing short of survival.”

    Bizarre test palace cleaners have to pass

    IT’LL come as no surprise that no one just walks straight into a job at any of the royal residences.

    Even if you’re not reporting directly to a member of the family, candidates go through rounds of rigorous interviews.

    And if that didn’t sound stressful enough, spare a thought for the poor prospective cleaners who have been subjected to the “dead fly test”.

    Appearing on the Channel 5 documentary Sandringham: Royals at Christmas, head of recruitment Tracey Waterman revealed how she weeds out the weaker housekeeping candidates.

    She explained: “One of the tests I like to do, to see if a candidate has potential eye for detail, is to place a dead fly, either in the fireplace or on the carpet.

    “Once the dead fly is placed, I then bring the candidate into the room.”

    New Diana film causes instant outrage

    A controversial new film Princess Diana premiered last night and caused instant outrage among royal experts who said it strips her of dignity.

    The movie, Spencer, portrays Diana as an emotionally unstable, broken woman who self-harms and breaks down hysterically in front of young son Prince William.

    Graphic scenes range from the fragile princess fantasising about throwing herself down the stairs to choking on a pearl necklace gifted to her by husband Charles.

    She is shown at the height of a mental health crisis while battling bulimia — reduced to tears as she forces herself to vomit and descends into hallucinations about her own death.

    A degrading shower scene ends with the princess talking about a solo sex act. Ingrid Seward, editor in chief of Majesty Magazine, said: “It is really cruel to portray her like this. It is totally unnecessary. William and Harry will be very angry and hurt about this."

      Another name

      According to royal biographer Robert Lacey, Prince Charles and Princess Diana faced this exact dilemma when their son Prince William was born in June 1982.

      Writing for PEOPLE magazine, the author claims Charles preferred the name Arthur.

      However, Diana allegedly wasn’t convinced.

      The expert wrote: “Diana, Princess of Wales proposed a more robust name — William, as in ‘William the Conqueror,’ victor of the famed Battle of Hastings in 1066.”

      As a result, the couple found a compromise.

      Instead, they used Arthur as one of William’s middle names – along with Philip and Louis.

      More from new Diana film ‘Spencer’

      In another scene appearing to echo Prince Harry’s real life comments on Oprah about his brother and father being trapped in the system, Harry asks Will if he even wants to be king. The heir swerves the question but the undertones are all too clear for the viewer.

      A third intense scene which will no doubt enrage the protective third in line to the throne, Wills is seen close to tears as he begs his mother to join him for dinner after she locks herself in the bathroom following a graphic self harm scene with wire cutters.

      As he bangs on the door, William is seen as collateral damage and the only family member willing to pick up the pieces of his parents’ shattered marriage.

      “Mummy, Mummy… Mummy, you said to tell you if you are being really silly. You are being really silly,” the emotional prince begs.

      “Please mummy, we have to sit down before Granny. Mummy just switch off your mind. Don’t think about it until after dinner for everyone’s sake.”

      Explained: When is the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee?

      THE QUEEN will celebrate 70 years on the British throne in 2022 – the first time any British monarch has reached the historic milestone.

      Senior British royals will attend a string of spectacular events in London and other cities showcasing the Queen’s impact in June 2022 – with a long four day weekend planned for all.

      Princess Elizabeth became Queen on February 6, 1952 – the day her father King George VI died.

      Therefore February 6, 2022, will mark 70 years on the throne.

      In November 2020, Oliver Dowden announced “a four-day Bank Holiday weekend to celebrate The Queen’s 70 year reign”.

      The May Bank Holiday Weekend will be moved to Thursday, June 2, 2022.

      An additional Bank Holiday will take place on Friday, June 3, 2022.

      How Meghan’s royal comeback shows she’s ‘resilient’ following Megxit

      Since stepping back from the royal family, Meghan Markle appears to have adopted a “steely determination that wasn’t there before”, says a body language expert. 

      The Duchess of Sussex stepped down as a senior royal in 2020 and is now making a “resilient” comeback following the end of her parental leave, claims Judi James. 

      Judi told Fabulous: “New York Meghan and Time mag cover’s Meghan reveal a woman with a much more steely look in both her eye expression and her body posing and movement. 

      “She is also seen looking more independently powerful and much more like a leader.

      “Now she has the profile but without the restrictions we can see the much steelier version of Meghan, who looks determined to change the world for the better and sooner rather than later.”

      Buckingham Palace left terrified

      THE Royal Family is braced for another devastating attack from Prince Harry — as he personally researches his mother’s life for a new book.

      Experts also fear he may use the memoir to name the “royal racist”.

      Royal insiders believe he will now be under extreme pressure to identify the family member he alleges made racist remarks about the colour of baby son Archie’s skin.

      Harry is understood to have been contacting Princess Diana’s old friends.

      It had been thought he would leave most of the work to a ghostwriter.

      Now, Palace sources are “surprised” at how involved he has become.

      Harry has told how he took wife Meghan and Archie to the US to stop “history repeating itself” — and drew comparisons to Di.

      There are concerns his delving into Diana’s life and divorce will paint Prince Charles and Camilla as the bad guys in his book.

      Royal expert Penny Junor said: “The publishers are going to want a lot for their money, such as naming this so-called racist.

      “He’s researching his mother’s life so he’s going to be talking about his parents’ marriage, the break up, the affairs. That could be incredibly damaging for his father and Camilla. Charles is going to be king and Camilla his queen. The last thing they or the country needs is another upsurge of anger based on what I believe to be false, false accusations.”

      The Harry slap

      THE ROYAL family want to throw punches at Prince Harry after he and Meghan Markle caused Megxit fallout drama, Mike Tindall has joked.

      Rugby legend Tindall, married to Princess Anne’s daughter Zara, made the wisecrack comments on Monday at A Question Of Sport Live at the London Palladium.

      He told the audience about a boozy night out back in 2003, when Prince Harry joined England’s team to celebrate their Rugby World Cup win in Sydney.

      After several drinks Tindall and teammate Iain Balshaw decided it would be funny to throw some punches at the Queen’s grandson – and see how long it would take his security to knock them to the ground.

      He laughed as he explained it took just a few seconds – but went on to joke that the firm would love to get a few jabs in.

      He said: “At Balmoral, the family are now having the same conversation. Except the Queen has taken his security away.”

      Third wheeling

      Diana is third wheel in Harry and Meghan’s marriage, claims a royal biographer.

      Andrew Morton, author of the bombshell biography Diana: In Her Own Words, has said that for both Harry and Meghan, “all roads lead back to Diana” and “every camera click and whirr” reminds them of their “terrible fate”.

      He continued to say that: “As the Sussexes embarked on their own journey together through Royal life, not a day went by without a reference, a memory or a decision that related in some way to Harry’s late mother. Diana was the third wheel in their marriage.”

      Racking it in

      Harry was estimated to be worth around £29.5m in 2019, before he and Meghan made the move to the States with their son, Archie, now two.

      After allegedly running up a colossal taxpayer bill in the UK, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex – who are also parents to four-month-old Lilibet – have been racking up their earnings.

      They landed a £30million deal with Spotify for their own podcast – branded a “woke word salad” by listeners.

      The couple also bagged a £112million Netflix deal – which led to Meghan being labelled the “new Kim Kardashian” – and have appeared at a string of lucrative speaking events, averaging at £756k a speech. 

      If that wasn’t enough, Meghan enlisted her close pal Oprah Winfrey to help flog a coffee investment via an Instagram post, reportedly worth millions.

      Harry has also had a £15million advance from publishers for a memoir, which experts fear he may use to name the “royal racist” – although he’s said to be donating profits to charity.

      Meghan’s peace offering to Kate

      In November 2018, it was reported “Meghan left Kate in tears” over her demands for Princess Charlotte’s flower girl dress during a “stressful” fitting.

      It was then subsequently claimed that the “rift” began when Kate said the flower girls should follow royal protocol by wearing tights which Meghan disagreed with.

      In the new updated version of Meghan: A Hollywood Princess, biographer Andrew Morton claims the former Suits actress gave Kate a “peace offering” following their disagreement.

      The expert wrote: “The spat concerning the [flower girls’] outfits now behind them, Meghan had since given Kate and her six closest friends gold bracelets designed by Californian jeweller Lisette Polny as a thank-you for their help and support.”

      COP26 has Royal approval

      The Queen, Prince Charles, Camilla, William and Kate are all set to attend this year’s COP26 climate change conference in November.

      Up to 25,000 people are expected from around the world for the event, with up to 200 countries attending to try and set major climate change goals to stop global warming.

      However ‘eco-warriors’ the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are set to skip the event as the pair have largely stayed away from the UK since Megxit.

      The Royal announcement comes weeks after Harry and Meghan attended the star-studded Global ­Citizen Live concert in New York — dubbed “Wokestock” — which demanded tough new eco laws to halve US emissions by 2030.

      It also pressed the “wealthiest nations” to deliver on a £70billion-a-year pledge to help developing countries go green.

        Andrew suit affecting Royals ‘really badly’

        Angela Levin said the suit is affecting the Royal Family “very badly” – and no matter what the outcome, the damage to Andrew’s reputation will be “permanent”.

        Harry ‘hypocritical’ for lecturing on climate change

        Former government minister Norman Baker, 64, told Newsweek: “It’s completely hypocritical for Prince Harry or other members of the royal family to lecture people about climate change when they’re emitting more carbon than almost everyone else on the planet.

        “People using private jets are in the top one percent of carbon emitters in the world.

        “Prince Harry needs to stop using private jets or if he wants to use private jets he needs to stop lecturing people on climate change. It is not particularly challenging to get a flight from New York to California – people do it all the time.”

        The couple have faced repeated criticism for insisting on using  private flights, despite preaching about the environment.

        Baker said Harry and Meghan took 18 private jet trips in the 12 months from January 2019 to January 2020.
