Meghan Markle news: Archie & Meg 'baked Prince Harry a cake' for 'low key' birthday celebrations amid Time 100 furore

MEGHAN Markle and Prince Harry's Time Magazine cover is a "stab in the heart" of the Queen's reputation, an expert has claimed.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex were this week named in the magazine's list of top 100 most influential people in the world.

Eric Schiffer, chairman of Reputation Management Consultants, told Newsweek: "Meghan and Harry landing a cover spot of Time Magazine's 100 Most Influential People will be seen as a stab in the heart of the Monarchy's reputation because of the greater implicit credibility it affords them and their previous claims against the crown."

In other news, a royal expert has warned people will "get bored" of Meghan and Harry's "touchy-feely" content as they continue to sign deals without delivering.

Royal historian Hugo Vickers told the Express: “I’m of the sort of generation that finds all this touchy-feely stuff rather unattractive, and I don’t really understand it and I don’t go for it either.

“So, I wonder, what have they got to say, will their message get any better as time goes on?

“Or will it just be more of the same? And people will get bored with them, won’t they?"

    HARRY & MEGHAN’S SIGNATURE HOLLYWOOD POSE IS ‘UNNATURAL AND STAGED’ WITH ONE TELLING SIGN GIVING IT AWAY, SAYS EXPERT

    The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are regularly seen staring into one another’s eyes whenever a camera comes out.

    And according to body language expert Judi James, while a very romantic shot, the pose is far from the natural and candid shot that the pair want to convey.

    Here she tells Fabulous Digital what the Sussex’s signature pose REALLY means…

    “Eye-ball to eye-ball gazing can be used by a couple to transmit all sorts of messages, from ‘I love you’ to ‘Put that pint down, we’re leaving!’.

    When a couple use prolonged bouts like Harry and Meghan though, it signals exclusivity; an engagement in intimate and private non-verbal conversations, and emphatically equal amounts of devotion and romantic attraction.

    PRINCE ANDREW ‘SET TO LEAVE BALMORAL HIDEAWAY TO SEE PREGNANT PRINCESS BEATRICE IN HOSPITAL’

    PRINCE Andrew will have to quit his Balmoral hideaway if he wants to see his heavily pregnant daughter in hospital.

    Princess Beatrice, 33, was admitted on Friday. Husband Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi, 38, was believed to be with her.

    Andrew has been in hiding for some time on the Queen’s 50,000-acre Scottish estate as lawyers try to serve Virginia Giuffre’s sex abuse lawsuit on him.

    But he is now likely to make a 500-mile dash to see his eldest daughter who is believed to be in a London hospital.

    A Balmoral insider said: “Prince Andrew obviously hasn’t wanted to leave Balmoral when lawyers are still trying to serve the lawsuit papers but his daughter comes first and he will want to be there for her.

    “He could end up staying on the estate and waiting for Beatrice to come to him once she’s given birth. But I’m sure he will want to go to her.”

    PHILIP ORDERED HARRY TO ‘COME BACK ALIVE’ FROM AFGHANISTAN

    PRINCE Harry reveals the Duke of Edinburgh ordered him to “come back alive” before he went off to war in Afghanistan.

    Harry, 37, opens up about his dry sense of humour in a touching television tribute to his grandfather, who died in April aged 99.

    Harry filmed his segment in California separately from the rest of the Royal Family.

    His brother William and dad Charles were among others remembering Prince Philip in clips revealed today ahead of Wednesday’s hour-long BBC special.

    LIES TO SMEAR NANNY

    It was claimed in the documents that Bashir told Diana her husband was “in love with” Ms Legge-Bourke, who cared for William and Harry between 1993 and 1999.

    Bashir denies spreading the smears.

    However, whatever the source, Diana became so convinced of a relationship between Charles and Ms Legge-Bourke that she confronted the young woman at a Christmas party.

    She is said to have approached the blameless nanny in 1995 and said: “So sorry about the baby.”

    She even wrote a letter two years before her death claiming that Prince Charles was plotting to kill her so he could marry Ms Legge-Bourke.

    TIGGY’S DISTRESS

    In the note, Diana predicted she would die through “brake failure and serious head injury”.

    The princess is said to have been obsessed with the mistaken idea of an affair – a false allegation deeply upsetting to the younger nanny.

    Mark Stephens, a media lawyer with the law firm Howard Kennedy, said: “The BBC’s handling of Bashir was a catastrophe turned into a disaster and as a consequence, the corporation recognises the least said, the soonest mended.”

    Bashir denies faking documents connected to the nanny.

    He says notes made by Earl Spencer and attributed to him were in fact comments made by the princess.

    HARRY’S CLOSE TIES WITH JILL BIDEN

    Meghan’s close political ties include Jill Biden, who Harry first met at a reception for British and US wounded warriors in Washington, when Joe was serving as Barack Obama’s Vice President.

    Since then, Harry and Jill have met up on a number of occasions, with her even coming over to London to support the royal’s Invictus Games.

    The pair are understood to have bonded over their military ties – with Jill’s stepson Beau, a former army major, tragically passing away in 2015 from brain cancer.

    In 2014, Jill travelled to London for Harry’s inaugural Invictus Games, where they were pictured smiling together during several of the events.

    Joe Biden joked he was “a little worried” about how much time Harry and Jill were spending together, something the then-Vice President repeated in 2016 when his wife met the Prince at the Games in Orlando.

    “Jill went to London for the last Games. She spent too much damn time with Prince Harry,” he said.

    THE Duke of Edinburgh’s will is to remain secret for 90 years to protect the Queen’s dignity.

    “There may be public curiosity as to the private arrangements the Royal Family may choose to make but there is no true interest in knowing this.”

    MEGHAN MARKLE AND PRINCE HARRY’S TIME MAGAZINE COVER IS A ‘STAB IN THE HEART’ TO QUEEN’S REPUTATION

    MEGHAN Markle and Prince Harry’s Time Magazine cover is a “stab in the heart” of the Queen’s reputation, an expert has claimed.

    The Duke and Duchess of Sussex were this week named in the magazine’s list of top 100 most influential people in the world.

    Glossy pictures showed Harry standing behind his 40-year-old wife with his arms on her right shoulder.

    And Time’s picture editor Dilys Ng said the portrait captures the Sussexes’ “powerful dynamic as equal partners”.

    But Eric Schiffer, chairman of Reputation Management Consultants, told Newsweek: “Meghan and Harry landing a cover spot of Time Magazine’s 100 Most Influential People will be seen as a stab in the heart of the Monarchy’s reputation because of the greater implicit credibility it affords them and their previous claims against the crown.”

    GAME OF CAT AND MOUSE

    Andrew has appeared to play a game of cat and mouse with the legal team acting for Ms Giuffre, formerly Roberts — moving between his home in Windsor and Balmoral to keep out of their way.

    Her lawyers said they had delivered papers notifying him about her US civil court sex case to his 30-room mansion at Royal Lodge in Windsor Great Park.

    They claimed the documents were left with police guards at his Windsor home and emailed to his lawyers.

    But he disputes that they have been properly served.

    The High Court in London has given Andrew’s legal team seven days to challenge its decision to allow them to notify him about the case on the New York court’s behalf.

    PRINCE PHILIP’S WILL TO REMAIN SECRET TO PROTECT ‘DIGNITY’ OF QUEEN, HIGH COURT RULES

    Prince Philip’s will is set to remain a secret to protect the “dignity” of the Queen, the High Court has ordered. This is because of her constitutional role.

    The Duke of Edinburgh died aged 99 on April 9 this year, just two months before he would have turned 100.

    After the death of a senior member of the royal family, it has been convention that an application to seal their will is made to the President of the Family Division of the High Court.

    What this means is that the wills of senior members of the royal family are not open to public inspection in the way a will would ordinarily be.

    VIRGINIA ROBERTS RELEASES PHOTOS THAT PROVE SEX ASSAULT PAPERS WERE SENT TO PRINCE ANDREW AT HIS HOME ADDRESS

    Prince Andrew’s lawyers are continuing to thwart efforts to serve the lawsuit and spark a 21-day period for the duke to reply – but pictures show the papers were sent to the Duke at his home.

    Sent via a Royal Mail post box, the envelope which contained the papers was sent off to the duke, with the stamp of the Queen’s head on the top.

    These photos released as evidence in US court filings show the lawsuit was posted to Andrew on September 9 – one of five attempts to reach the accused royal.

    They show a worker from the London office of law firm Boies Schiller Flexner LLP posting the envelope containing the lawsuit into a traditional red Royal Mail post box.

    It was addressed to ‘Prince Andrew’ at his 100-acre 30-room mansion at Royal Lodge on the private Windsor Great Park, just three miles from Windsor Castle, on September 9.

    And even came with a first class stamp bearing the Queen’s profile.

    THE QUEEN ‘WON’T OVERRULE CHARLES’ PLAN TO KEEP ANDREW AWAY FROM PUBLIC DUTIES’, CLAIMS ROYAL BIOGRAPHER ANGELA LEVIN

    The Queen won’t “overrule” her eldest, who reportedly wishes to keep the Duke of York out of the public eye after damaging sex assault allegations.

    However, the monarch “adores” Andrew and “enjoys his company”, expert Angela Levin said today.

    Ms Levin, who has written an authorised biography on Prince Harry, called Andrew “naïve and arrogant” as the royal faces a legal wrangle in a US civil court.

    In an interview with Julia Hartley-Brewer on TalkRADIO, she said the Queen had ruled out Andrew’s return to duties.

    “She said he couldn’t be,” she said.

    “She adores Andrew and enjoys his company.

    “I think that she won’t overrule what Charles says. The rest of the royals won’t want him to do that.”

    “Dear Meghan and Harry,” he begins. “The first thing I want to say to both of you…”

    His voiceover then trails off and a question appears on the screen that reads: “What’s in the letter?”

    The royal told how the teenager had been completing a hike for his Duke of Edinburgh Award when he made the rude remark to the scheme’s founder.

    The Duke of Cambridge and Philip came across two young walkers on the Queen’s Balmoral estate as the teens took part in a expedition to achieve their award.

    MEGHAN MARKLE & PRINCE HARRY HAVE ‘DEPRIVED’ KIDS ARCHIE & LILIBET BY NOT LETTING THEM MEET QUEEN, THOMAS CLAIMS

    Thomas Markle accused the couple of being “terribly unfair” to their children by keeping them away from relatives, including himself and Grandad Prince Charles too.

    He told Channel 7’s Sunrise: “I think they (Archie and Lilibet) are being deprived of seeing all their grandparents and I think they are being deprived of seeing all their relatives and I think that’s terribly unfair to them.”

    Asked if he would consider legal action to see his grandkids, he said: “I’ve had offers from several lawyers – pro-bono – because we do have the right to sue to see our grandchildren.

    “But to me that’s like trying to descend into a game and using them like pawns and I won’t sue to see them because I just think that’s using them and it’s not what I plan to do.”

    MYSTERY AS THE QUEEN’S ROYAL HELICOPTER LANDS IN PARK

    A huge stir was caused today in Birkenhead Park in Wirral, Liverpool as a maroon aircraft with the registration G-XXEB parked up on the green.

    Eyewitnesses said the helicopter wasn’t in the park long before taking off again, but no trace of its flight path will be found on radar websites for security reasons.

    Many took to social media to suggest who had stepped out of the private aircraft, one joking it was Mr T from the A-Team.

    However, there is speculation over the craft being used regularly by The Duke of Cambridge, Prince William who used to be a former RAF Search and Rescue pilot.
