- When will Prince Harry’s book be released?
- Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's net worth explained

MEGHAN AND HARRY could “play the victim” and have another Oprah interview, a royal expert has claimed.

GeoTV reports that according to Duncan Larcombe, if a report from Buckingham Palace reveals that the Sussexes bullied members of staff, then they could have another bombshell interview to explain their side of the story.

He says: “For Jason Knauff to take that risk of reporting to Prince William, his ultimate boss, concerns he had about his staff and the treatment of them at the hands of one of the members of the Royal Family.

“That is not only unusual, but within the Queen’s reign this is absolutely unprecedented.

“I think the reason they are not publishing any of this is because the Palace is running scared of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.

“I think they know that if they publish the report, the next thing that will happen potentially is for Harry and Meghan to play the victim and go on Oprah and cause another world of pain.”

  • Fans are all saying the same thing about sweet moment Kate Middleton ‘introduces’ Prince George at Wimbledon

    IT'S a well-known fact that Kate Middleton and Prince William are huge tennis fans and attend the Wimbledon finals every year without fail.

    But for the first time ever, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have brought their eldest son Prince George with them to watch Nick Kyrgios and Novak Djokovic battle it out on Centre Court.

    As they arrived at the Championships this afternoon, Kate and George were filmed getting out their car and greeting members of Wimbledon staff.

    As this is the eight-year-old's first ever Wimbledon visit, Kate took the time to introduce him to each person waiting at the doors for them.

    The Duchess - who is Wimbledon's royal patron - gently placed her arm on George's shoulder as he shook hands with a security guard.

    The mum-of-three then walked towards chairman Ian Hewitt - who bowed for the future King.

    Introducing her son, the Duchess said: "This is George."

    Then addressing George, she continued: "This is Ian. Ian is in charge of everything, George."

    Sharing the clip with her 12,000 followers, Twitter user Belle wrote: "The Duchess of Cambridge guiding Prince George through meeting Wimbledon staff on his first ever visit! So sweet."

    One fan replied: "I like how they're educating and training Prince George!"

  • Sussexes could turn down big invite

    Royal commentator Neil Sean told his YouTube channel that Meghan and Harry are set to turn down an invite to Balmoral.

    He said: “According to that good source, even the allure of Balmoral with all that wonderful air, highlands, treats, and of course spending time with the world’s most interesting woman, in my opinion, seemingly they are too busy."

    He continued: “It looks like Harry and Meghan will have to politely decline the invitation to go to Balmoral to spend some time with our gracious monarch.

    “According to that source, the real reason is that as we know, Prince Harry is gearing up to release his tell-all book in the autumn.

    “This could prove really tricky and thorny, couldn’t it?

    "Because I’m sure that would be brought up as a topic, rightly so.

    “And if of course you’re sitting opposite your grandmother and you have to explain exactly what you’re planning to do, or what you’re planning to say then it creates a very thorny situation.

    “So of course, Harry and Meghan have decided that the easy way out of this is to sadly not attend.”

  • Prince Harry and Meghan can't keep kids 'cooped up forever'

    A royal writer has said that it is time to give the children more experience of the outside world.

    The Sussexes have a very strong home compound, with sprawling acres of land, play areas and a pool.

    With such amazing facilities, why would you ever want to leave?

    Daniela Elser wrote on the NZ Herald website: "A huge back yard, children's playhouse, tennis court and a pool might provide more than enough entertainment and space for little ones to play and roam safety way from the gaze of the public, and press, but the couple can't keep Archie and Lili cooped up at home forever."

  • Archie and Lilibet now 'valuable prey' in US

    Australian royal writer Daniela Elser warned Meghan Markle and Prince Harry left themselves open to being snapped by paparazzi than if they were in the UK.

    Writing for NZ Herald, Ms Elser said: “Harry and Meghan might not be enjoying Beyonce-levels of popularity (the most recent polling shows that less than half of Americans view them favourably) but there is no end to the fascination with the nation's very own branch of the Royal Family.

    “The whole family is, in short, valuable prey for anyone who might come across the family out and about.

    “What will it mean for Archie and his little sister Lilibet to grow up in a country where there is a ready market for iPhone snaps of them?

    “The Sussex family might live on a seven-acre estate but the minute they set foot outside those gates, they are unprotected from the glare of lenses, both professional and amateur.”

  • Prince Harry and Meghan Markle celebrated 4 July with an old friend

  • Win for Prince Harry during libel claim

    The Prince sued Associated Newspapers Limited over libel in an article written earlier this year.

    In the article written about his security arrangement dispute with the Home Office, it is claimed that he tried to manipulate the public.

  • Has a King or Queen dissolved Parliament before?

    The Queen must give her permission for an election to take place, and she has the power to refuse such a request if it breaches certain constitutional conventions. 

    The last dissolution of Parliament was in November 2019 to make way for the general election, which Boris Johnson won.

    Parliament is dissolved 25 days before the general election, which happens every five years.

    The Prime Minister visits the monarch and asks them to dissolve Parliament to allow for campaigning and the public to vote.

    In 1979, Labour PM James Callaghan lost a vote of no confidence, leading to the Queen dissolving parliament, therefore giving the public the right to vote in the next Government.

    However, the Queen can refuse a request to dissolve Parliament.

  • Can the Queen dissolve Parliament?

    Historically, the monarch is able to dissolve Parliament and does so at the end of each term.

    This usually happens every five years but can be brought forward by royal proclamation.

    When the Queen dissolves Parliament, all Members of Parliament are dismissed and a general election is called.

    The Fixed-term Parliaments Act 2011 meant an election could only be called outside the five-year Parliamentary cycle by one of two scenarios - if two-thirds of the House of Commons voted in favour of one, or if the Government lost a vote of no confidence.

    But the power to call a snap election was reinstated by the Dissolution and Calling of Parliament Act 2022.

  • Helpless Prince Harry being ‘dragged around like a performing seal’

    Prince Harry was being dragged "around like a royal performing seal" within just four months of meeting his wife Meghan Markle, Ingrid Seward has claimed.

    The Duke and Duchess of Sussex began dating in July 2016, according to news agency Reuters.

    The BBC reports that after just two dates, the "already-smitten royal" decided to whisk the American actress off to Botswana - a country which has placed a central role in their fairytale romance.

    The pair enjoyed five nights camping under the African stars, and Prince Harry later told the broadcaster he believed the "stars were aligned" when he met her.

    And according to the royal biographer, when the couple went public on Halloween, Meghan "moved at the speed of lightning."

    She claims that "mesmerised" Prince Harry doted on his wife throughout their "whirlwind courtship" and is "obsessed."

  • Prince Harry’s libel claim supported by the court

  • Prince Harry and Meghan’s now deleted 4 July pictures branded ‘unremarkable’

    A royal writer has compared most recent the photographs captured of Meghan and Harry to his brother Prince William and wife Kate.

    Daniela Elser, said the photographs, which have now been deleted off social media, were “unremarkable”.

    She wrote for the New Zealand Herald: “The shots in and of themselves are not that remarkable – a very cute little boy sucking a lollipop while watching a parade, Meghan casually but chicly dressed and Harry doing his usual impression of a hirsute thundercloud.

    “But it’s the fact that the shots themselves were even taken that is significant here.

    “Ask yourself this: Have you ever seen similar images crop up of William and Kate, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s children?”

    Drawing comparison to the Cambridge children she said: “They are not housebound nor kept squirrelled away permanently behind six-foot walls.

    “Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis all go to school, tennis lessons at the Hurlingham Club and have been seen shopping with Kate.

    “And yet how often do we ever really see photos on social media, snapped of the kids taken unawares?”

    Daniela went on to analyse the Cambridge children’s public appearance, explaining how despite in five years of living in central London, just one kilometre away from the Daily Mail HQ, they have been left mostly alone to grow up in peace.

    The writer suggests that the Cambridge children have more privacy living in the thick of it all, than Archie and Lilibet, despite the two Sussex children being hidden away.

  • Two police men from the Met have been sacked over vile racist messages
