    MEGHAN MARKLE AND PRINCE HARRY’S BOMBSHELL OPRAH INTERVIEW WAS UP FOR EMMY BEFORE IT HIT SCREENS

    It was announced yesterday that Meghan Markle and Harry’s shocking interview with American presenter Oprah Winfrey was up for an Emmy award.

    But royal commentator, Angela Levin took to Twitter to expose that the interview had been nominated before viewers had even set eyes on it.

    “Now that’s interested. Putting H and M’s conversation with Oprah up for an Emmy before anyone had seen it. How does that work?” Levin said.

    It comes after @Murky__Meg also took to Twitter to connect the dots. She said: “Oh wow! Deadline for Emmy nominations was 17th Feb 2021 and the interview didn’t air until 7th March.”

    HARRY 'MADE HIMSELF CLEAR OVER CHRISTENING'

    The princes even issued a joint statement, despite the strains between them – although they did not give a speech at the ceremony.

    The brothers are believed to have been speaking over text again – raising hopes for a reconciliation after the Sussexes gave an explosive interview to Oprah in March.

    During the chat, they alleged a senior royal had made racist comments about their son Archie's skin colour – while Meghan claimed Kate made her cry over bridesmaids' dresses.

    And tensions were doubtless inflamed after the Duke of Sussex went on to discuss his family in further interviews.

    PRINCE HARRY ‘SCRAMBLED TO TELL HIS FAMILY ABOUT MEMOIR 'MOMENTS' BEFORE BOOK NEWS WAS ANNOUNCED – BLINDSIDING ROYALS’

    PRINCE Harry scrambled to tell his family about his new memoir "moments" before it was announced – blindsiding the royals.

    Harry, 36, has been secretly writing a book detailing his life as a Royal, his relationship with wife Meghan Markle, Megxit and raising his kids.

    It is understood Harry scrambled to contact his family only when he knew the story was coming out – just moments before it became public. It is not known if he had warned the Queen before last night.

    The duke reportedly told his family about the book in private – but only "very recently", according to a source who spoke to royal reporter Jack Royston.

    A Clarence House aide told The Times: "The prince loves his children very much and remains focused on his work to ensure we have a sustainable future for the next generation, including his own children and grandchildren."

    CAMILLA SPEAKS OF HOPES THAT WORST OF PANDEMIC IS OVER (CONTINUED…)

    The duchess chatted to Exeter resident Sarah Clarke, who said afterwards: "She said it's lovely to be here and hopefully we're over the worst of it and I said 'Fingers crossed'.

    "She also said we've just got to be careful."

    Monday has been dubbed "freedom day" with most legal coronavirus restrictions in England being lifted by the Government as it moves to Step 4 of its pandemic recovery road map.

    For the first time since March 2020, the two-metre social distancing rule is no longer being enforced and face coverings are no longer required by law, but the Government has said it "expects and recommends" that they are worn in crowded areas like public transport.

    Despite the changes, the prince and duchess will abide by the regulations laid down by the hosts of royal events in future.

    CAMILLA SPEAKS OF HOPES THAT WORST OF PANDEMIC IS OVER DURING CATHEDRAL VISIT

    The Duchess of Cornwall expressed her hopes that the country is over the worst of the pandemic as she and the Prince of Wales took part in their first mask-free royal event of the crisis.

    Camilla's comment came during an impromptu walkabout in the grounds of Exeter Cathedral, meeting members of the public in numbers not seen for more than a year.

    But the duchess sounded a cautious note, telling one well-wisher the nation has to be careful.

    The couple's tour of the cathedral – part of a three-day trip to Devon and Cornwall – had been publicised in advance, another sign of a return to normality, and around 100 people turned out in blazing summer sunshine to welcome them.

    After meeting local community and environmental groups in the open-air, Charles and Camilla walked over to a line of residents who had been waiting for them to arrive.

    MEGHAN MARKLE AND PRINCE HARRY’S NEWBORN, LILIBET BEING ‘IGNORED’ BY ROYAL FAMILY

    The Royal Family have been accused of risking a new “firestorm” as Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s daughter, Lilibet has yet to be included in the line of succession on the families website.

    Royal Expert Daniela Elser has warned the royal rift will continue and become a “firestorm” as Lilibet, who is eighth in line to the throne, has still not been added to the official family list, despite her birth six weeks ago.

    Elser said: “It’s simply beggars belief that this website situation has been allowed to happen given that 2021 is in strong contention to be the Queen’s Annus Horribilis 2.0 for a variety of Harry and Meghan-shaped reasons.”

    “The fact that the Palace has failed to include Lili so far and for weeks on end after her birth carries with it quite the sting.”

    THE QUEEN PUT PRINCE HARRY 'IN PLACE' FOR 'RUDE LANGUAGE' DURING ROW OVER WIFE MEGHAN MARKLE, ROYAL SOURCE CLAIMS

    The Queen put Harry "firmly in his place" after using "rude language" over Meghan Markle's wedding tiara, royal author claimed.

    Meghan Markle wore Queen Mary's diamond tiara as she tied the knot to Prince Harry in 2017, however it was the cause of stress and fury among the Queen and royal staff.

    Royal author, Omid Scobie spoke of the "drama" that lead up to the big day.

    He said that dressmaker Angela Kelly made things very difficult when it came to arranging the fittings.

    He added: "The drama took place afterwards when Meghan wanted to try that tiara on with her hairstylist, because there is a lot of tech that goes into this.

    "The hairstylist came in from overseas, there was an appointment at Buckingham Palace, but nobody was there."

    PRINCESS CHARLOTTE ‘WILL MISS HER BIG BROTHER’ IF GEORGE GOES TO BOARDING SCHOOL BUT IS A ‘LITTLE LEADER’, EXPERTS SAY

    PRINCESS Charlotte “will miss” her big brother if George goes away to boarding school, Royal experts have said.

    But the “independent and outgoing” princess, six, who is a “little leader”, will ultimately be fine without her big brother beside her, they added.

    With George set to turn eight later this month, the same age William was when he left London to board, speculation is mounting that the young prince could follow family tradition.

    Both George and Charlotte currently attend Thomas’s Battersea, which goes up to the age of 13.

    But Princes William and Harry both moved to Ludgrove School, Berkshire, from the age of eight – before studying at Eton.

    ECO-WARRIOR PRINCE HARRY ‘USING ULTRA-EXCLUSIVE VIP AIRPORT SERVICE & GAS-GUZZLING CHEVROLET’ TO JET IN STYLE

    PRINCE Harry is using an ultra-exclusive VIP airport service which whisked him away in a gas-guzzling Chevrolet during his trip from London to LA last month, according to a report. 

    The Duke of Sussex – a passionate advocate for environmental causes – has reportedly been making use of The Private Suite, which is described as “the most VIP way through the airport”.

    Members sign up for £3,250 a year and fork up another £2,500 per trip – but can exit the plane on their own private stairs before other passengers. 

    They are then picked up in a private SUV and taken to a private terminal where they can collect their luggage and move through passport control all in isolation, the Mail on Sunday reports. 

    On the Private Suite’s website, the company describes itself as a “private airport experience”, writing: “PS reimagines the airport experience for the seasoned and discerning traveller.”

    HACKINGHAM PALACE

    THE Queen has stepped up defences against hackers after learning the Royal Family is a high-risk target.

    Her Majesty, 95, has relished engagements via video call in lockdown and chats to grandson Harry and wife Meghan in the US.

    Her cyber security experts say in a report there is now a high rather than medium risk of unauthorised access to Royal Household data.

    The warning, written by Sir Michael Stevens, Keeper of the Privy Purse, is thought to refer to crooks in China and Russia.

    It warns the effect of hacking would be: “Reputational damage, penalties and/or legal action against the Household or members of staff.”
