Royal Family news latest – Princess Beatrice gives nod to Queen in baby name as Harry's new book leaves Palace 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.

On Friday, Princess Beatrice announced the name of her first baby with husband Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi – and it gives a very subtle nod to the Queen.

Their daughter is called Sienna Elizabeth, with the middle name being a tribute to Beatrice’s grandmother.

    Royal courtiers ‘kept largely in dark’ on Andrew case updates – reports

    Andrew’s personal finances are unclear but experts have pointed out that he has no regular source of income.

    He leases his home, Royal Lodge on the Queen’s Windsor estate, and is expected to sell a Swiss ski chalet to repay a debt to its previous owner, who claims he and ex-wife Sarah Ferguson owe her £6.7 million.

    The Queen’s contribution to Andrew’s defence reportedly means his UK-based legal team, led by Gary Bloxsome, are reportedly obliged to provide updates to Buckingham Palace about the case.

    However, courtiers have been kept “largely in the dark”, according to The Telegraph.

    Following the trend

    Princess Beatrice follows Meghan Markle and Prince Harry and William and Kate with royal baby name trend

    Beatrice and husband Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi have named their baby girl Sienna Elizabeth, with Beatrice revealing the sweet name on Twitter on Friday.

    She wrote on her official account: "We are delighted to share that we have named our daughter Sienna Elizabeth Mapelli Mozzi."

    This is Queen Elizabeth's 12th great-grandchild and arrives just over three months after Lilibet Diana, Harry and Meghan's second child who they also named in honour of the Queen.

    Back in June, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex welcomed their daughter, Lilibet Diana Mountbatten-Windsor.

    She was named after the Queen's family nickname and also Harry's mother Princess Diana, who died in a car crash in 1997.

    Prince William and Kate Middleton's six-year-old daughter Charlotte's name also pays tribute to the monarch.

    Her full name, including her title, is Princess Charlotte Elizabeth Diana of Cambridge.

    Meg & Harry slammed as ‘insufferable’ by Sky News host

    Sky News host Alan Jones snapped live on air today – blasting that the “whole world is fed up” with Harry & Meghan’s “preaching”.

    Incensed by the couple’s high-profile trip to New York last week, the Australian presenter slammed the pair and blasted their “do-gooder activities”.

    Mr Jones argued that as the pair had chosen to quit as senior royals, they should not be arranging to meet people in power.

    “These two are truly insufferable,” he fumed.

    “The latest, a trip to New York for a bunch of do-gooder activities. One was to visit the United Nations to have a meeting with the United Nations deputy Secretary-General. Honestly, on what basis are these two non-working members of the royal family meeting any politician or world leader?”

    Mr Jone also hit out at the couple for sharing messages and lecturing about climate change and the coronavirus pandemic.

    He continued: “I mean, the whole world is fed up with these two and their preaching. I thought they wanted to live a quiet life out of the limelight. I think we wish they did.”

    Sussexes attempted to pull focus from Royals onto themselves

    Harry, 37, was seen with a wire hanging out of his trouser pocket, leaving many suspecting there could have been other motives for his and Meghan’s NY trip.

    Claims they were filming for Netflix continued after pictures emerged showing a cameraman trailing the couple for much of their trip.

    Royal writer Angela Levin told The Sun: “As well as attempting to pull focus from the Royal Family onto themselves, they appeared to be filming the whole thing for a Netflix documentary. 

    “Harry was spotted with a microphone wire going into his back pocket and cameras were catching every moment of their chats with members of the public and the mayor of New York.

    “My question is whether they have told all the people they are talking to that they will be included [in the documentary].”

    Are Harry & Meghan under pressure to reveal?

    In March, Harry told US talk show queen Oprah Winfrey he would never name the alleged royal racist.

    But The Sun understands he and Meghan, 40, are under pressure to release it.

    Harry scored a £15million multi-book deal with Penguin Random House — but only one is thought to be a memoir. Buckingham Palace did not want to comment.

    Prince Harry may name royal ‘racist’ in new £15m book

    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.

    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.”

    Queen ‘spending MILLIONS funding Andrew’s case’ – reports

    The Queen, 95, is reportedly funding Andrew’s legal fight, The Telegraph understands, and is spending millions on her son’s defence.

    The money going towards Andrew’s legal costs is reportedly coming from her Duchy of Lancaster estate, which generates more than £23 million in income.

    Royal courtiers expect the legal bill to run into the millions.

    Explained: Kate Middleton’s fashion journey

    IT’S taken Kate No Time to get back into the swing of red carpet events, but it’s been a slow and steady build-up to the Duchess finding her stylish, gold-heeled feet.

    Attending the premiere of the latest James Bond movie this week, Kate wore her best look to date — a custom Jenny Packham caped dress bedazzled with thousands of gold sequins, which usually costs £3,640.

    It outshone every Hollywood A-lister and proved as big a talking point as the film itself.

    Even though Kate has walked her fair share of red carpets, this is the first time she has worn such a showstopper of an outfit.

    Her style has evolved from shy wallflower to perfect princess.

    Prince Andrew attended creepy Jeffrey Epstein party

    Prince Andrew cosied up to Jeffrey Epstein at a creepy Eyes Wide Shut style party – where the female staff “looked very young”, a book claims.

    US television host Katie Couric says she was also a guest at the 2010 dinner at Epstein’s £57million townhouse in Manhattan – dubbed “paedo mansion” after he raped underage girls there.

    Couric’s memoir describes the setting as “Eyes Wide Shut with a twist – creepy chandeliers and body-part art”, reports DailyMail.com.

    Guests ate lasagne out of shallow bowls and Epstein “held court” in front of the fireplace with Woody Allen and Soon-Yi Previn, George Stephanopoulos and Charlie Rose.

    On the way home, Couric’s boyfriend Brooks Perlin remarked to her how young the women who took their coats were, she recalls.

    She also writes: “I couldn’t imagine what Epstein and Andrew were up to, apart from trying to cultivate friends in the media.

    “Which, in retrospect, they must have figured they’d need.”

    'Creating a lasting legacy to the Queen'

    The Queen’s Green Canopy (QGC) aims to “create a lasting legacy” to the Queen by urging people to start their own tree-planting projects across the UK with the call to action: “Plant a tree for the jubilee.”

    The scheme encourages planting to take place between October and March, to optimise the chance of trees surviving and flourishing.

    The children presented the queen with a hand-made card to mark the end of her traditional summer break at her beloved Scottish residence.

    The monarch thanked them for the “very kind” gesture after being presented with the card by Annie Hutchin, aged “six and a half”, and Skye Jones, nine.

    Annie said afterwards: “She asked how we made it and said we did a lovely job.”

    Royal Family is ‘rooting’ for Kate

    THE entire royal family is “rooting” for Kate Middleton who won’t “use the monarchy for her own personal gain like Meghan Markle”, insiders have said.

    Sources close to the Firm told MailOnline: “It’s fair to say the whole institution has been rooting for the Duchess of Cambridge.

    “There was a clear moment where an active decision was made to change her look – be more confident in her style, her approach, her projects, the events she would say yes to.

    “There was a clear moment where an active decision was made to change her look – be more confident in her style, her approach, her projects, the events she would say yes to.

    “This was nothing about changing stylists or staff, either. It was about Kate acknowledging the Duchess of Sussex had changed the game and it was necessary for her to compete.

    “That had already been going on between the Prince of Wales and his two sons for some time, but Catherine had never felt the need to get involved. She is the ultimate team player.

    “But she soon became aware of how Meghan was trying to use the monarchy for her own personal gain and it helped Catherine understand the importance of the role she could play.”

    Sussexes took 21 private jets in 2 years

    PRINCE Harry and Meghan Markle have been branded “completely hypocritical” after reportedly taking 21 private jets in two years while preaching about climate change.

    The Duke and Duchess of Sussex appeared at a gig at the weekend calling for action on climate change — and then climbed aboard a Dassault Falcon 2000 jet and flew back to their £11million mansion in Montecito, California.

    The star-studded Global ­Citizen Live concert in New York — dubbed “Wokestock” — demanded tough new eco laws to halve US emissions by 2030.

    Harry, 37, and Meghan, 40, appeared on stage and pressed the “wealthiest nations” to deliver on a £70billion-a-year pledge to help developing countries go green.

    But after the event, the couple flew home by private jet, with pictures showing them hugging their team after stepping off the aircraft.

    Sussexes told Oprah they ‘had no plan’

    Earlier this year the Duke and Duchess of Sussex told Oprah Winfrey they had “no plan” after quitting the Royal Family – and they were soon told their security would be taken away.

    The interview saw Meghan and Harry make a colossal list of allegations against the royal family which tore an even bigger rift between the couple and Harry’s family.

    Meghan, 39, revealed during the high-profile interview, which aired in March, that her mental health suffered while she was living in the UK.

    She also said she was not given the help she needed when she reportedly felt suicidal.

    The Duchess of Sussex also said there had been conversations with Prince Harry and a “family” member about their unborn son and what colour his skin would be – and “what that would mean or look like”.

    Harry ‘oozed alcohol from every pore’

    Prince Harry “oozed alcohol from every pore” and stank of cigarettes during his “wild-oats sowing phase”, a famous US TV host has claimed.

    Katie Couric has detailed encounters with both the Duke of Sussex and his uncle, Prince Andrew, in her new memoir Going There.

    The prince has admitted turning to drugs to cope with his mum’s death.

    And he said he would regularly drink “a week’s worth of alcohol in one day”.

    The 37-year-old opened up about his struggles with his mental well-being and the trauma that haunts him in recent doc The Me You Can’t See.

    “I was willing to drink, I was willing to take drugs, I was willing to try and do the things that made me feel less like I was feeling,” he said.

    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.”

    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.

    Royals ‘want to throw punches at Prince Harry’

    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.”

    He added: “Except the Queen has taken his security away.”
