    FOUR WORDS DOOMED MEGHAN'S RELATIONSHIP WITH ROYALS

    An opinion piece on news.com.au today is pinpointing four words spoken by Prince Harry three years ago, as the beginning of Meghan's downfall.

    In late December, 2017, when Harry edited BBC Radio’s flagship Today show, he claimed his fiance had a great time over the festive period with the "family she never had".

    In an opinion piece published today, commentator Daniela Elser said three years on, Harry's words had taken on a completely different meaning.

    "The unspoken implication seemed to be that Meghan had – and was going to continue to – fit right in with the house of Windsor," Elser wrote.

    "If someone had even a jot of foresight, things might have turned out differently and today Harry and Meghan might today be happily ensconced in Frogmore Cottage."

    An insider has claimed Meghan Markle wants to follow in Prince Charles and Sarah Ferguson's footsteps and give fiction writing a go.

    An insider said: "Fiction is something she has always wanted to try her hand at, and she could be assured that anything she writes would sell well, regardless of its quality.

    ARCHIE'S LIVING AN 'ENID BLYTON' LIFE

    Analysing the Sussexes' latest Christmas card, body language expert Judi James claims the couple have made a conscious effort to protect their privacy while also presenting an idealised version of their new life in California.

    She told Fabulous: "This digitalised picture seems to glorify the Enid Blyton-style childhoods of vintage storybooks, suggesting a very besotted-looking Harry and Meghan are set on creating a look of idyllic, rustic intimacy rather than posing up the garden in their multi-million dollar mansion.

    "There is a suggestion from the pose that Meghan wants to contain and protect her precious family unit. Harry sits inside the tiny playhouse here, holding his face close to Archie’s and grinning at his son, who he holds with both hands."

    SOMETHING IN COMMON

    Meghan’s son Archie and Princess Eugenie’s baby could have something in common when the tot arrives next year.

    If Eugenie decides to give birth in the same hospital that she was born in back in 1990, then the new royal baby and Archie Harrison will immediately share a similar story.

    Meghan welcomed Archie, one, in London's The Portland Hospital back in May 2019.

    Meanwhile, Eugenie and her sister, Princess Beatrice, were also born in the American-owned hospital.

    In fact, when Sarah Ferguson gave birth to eldest daughter Beatrice in August 1988, it made her the first member of the royal family to give birth in a non-NHS hospital.

    THIS IS THE £19 PRODUCT MEG USES TO LOOK MORE AWAKE

    The duchess has opted for a nude-tone of eye pencil instead of her trademark dark eyeliner, make-up expert Francesca Abrahamovitch told the Daily Mail.

    And Charlotte Tilbury sells the perfect one for just £19.

    And she's been applying it just below her lower waterline, which can make anyone look like they've had a full eight hours sleep (sounds like magic to us).

    Francesca said: "If you still want smoulder, smudge your dark pencil below it.

    "As long as you steer clear of that all-important waterline, you'll maintain the eye-brightening illusion."

    THESE ARE MEG’S NEW YEAR’S RESOLUTIONS

    The former actress previously admitted that nail biting and swearing make her list of New Year's resolutions every year without fail.

    On her now-defunct lifestyle blog The Tig, the Duchess of Sussex, 38, revealed her struggle to give up the two very un-royal qualities back in January 2016, according to the Daily Telegraph.

    She wrote: "These make my New Year's resolution list nearly (AKA actually every) single year.

    "The swearing comes in lulls triggered by being overworked or feeling mighty cheeky after a couple drinks.

    "And when it comes to the biting of the nails — well, it still happens with a turbulent flight or a stressful day.

    "It's unladylike. But then again, so is the swearing. Dammit."

    ARCHIE PICKS UP MEG’S AMERICAN ACCENT

    Archie could be heard speaking for the first time when he wished listeners a Happy New Year on his parents Archewell podcast.

    And listeners heard how the tot had picked up his mum’s American accent.

    Experts at Spoons voices said: “There are a number of studies that suggest children pick up accents from the environment they're in or people they're around the most. 

    “Archie could be spending loads of time with mama Meghan hence a slight leaning towards her accent. 

    “The great thing is that having to recognise the same words pronounced in different ways will supercharge young Archie's ability to map and connect words to meanings.”

    LEASEHOLDER REFORM COULD SPARK UPSET

    Reforms for leaseholders in England, and possible exemptions for the royals, could spark upset, according to royal experts.

    Three royal estates were expected to be exempted from a reform which would see leaseholders in England being given the right to extend their leases up to 990 years without paying ground rent.

    An exemption for the three estates – The Duchy of Lancaster, the Duchy of Cornwall and the Crown Estate – was expected to upset tenants, who could continue to face rising rents.

    Queen's Worth author David McClure told the Express that the "main problem" was with the Scilly Isles, where the main landowner was Prince Charles' Duchy of Cornwall.

    "Some tenants in the Scilly Isles say the Duchy of Cornwall is doing this purely to make money," McClure said.

    SUSSEXES LOOKING TO COPY OBAMAS' SUCCESS

    Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are looking to model their brand on the Obamas' success, a royal expert has claimed.

    Vanity Fair royal editor Katie Nicholl told 9Honey the Sussexes have been analysing Barack and Michelle's steps to success as they find their feet away from Buckingham Palace.

    Aspects of their post-White House life like deals with Netflix and the release of best-selling books would likely be aspirational to them, Nicholl said.

    "It's high end, it's aspirational, it sits very much with the image that the Sussexes are trying to curate for themselves and it's a successful business model."
