The Queen is cleaning house which usually just means running a white glove over every surface in the palace and tsking under her breath. But this time she’s actually rolling up her sleeves to do some real work. According to Deadline, The Queen has snatched Harvey Weinstein’s honorary CBE title straight from his cold, might-as-well-be dead hands. And just to prove she’s not playing least-favorites, Express UK reports that her beloved boy HRH Prince Andrew, is very likely to be stripped of his title as well. There is a little silver lining for the fellas though, both can console themselves by using the alternate prefix, Hurricane.
Queen Elizabeth’s husband Prince Philip is scheduled to turn 100 years old on June 21, 2021. So they’re throwing him a big 100th birthday party, even if Philip looks like the type who would rather just stay home, drink a scotch, and cuss someone out for putting too many chives in his cottage pie. Philip’s birthday celebrations are nine months away, and there’s lots to do beforehand, including some pre-party damage control. And not the regular kind, like making sure Philip doesn’t have access to a live mic, or tried to drive himself into the party. This has to do with the Royal Family’s current biggest publicity stain, Prince Andrew.
If the year was 1820 and not 2020, Piers Morgan might have made a name for himself as The Ye Olde Town Hater. Shuffling endlessly through various city squares in a tri-corner hat large enough for his ego-swollen head, clanging a worn-out bell, screaming, “Your Earl and his wife have been known to enjoy libations prior to mid-day?!? Off with their heads!” In present day, he does pretty much the same thing, except it’s all on Twitter. On Friday, Piers got to hate on one of his favorite couples, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, when he said that they should be stripped of every royal title they have. Can you believe this doesn’t have anything to do with them wearing shorts in public? No, it’s because Meghan spoke about the upcoming American presidential election.
Not long after it was revealed that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle high-tailed it out of Los Angeles and moved to Montecito, CA, people started getting suspicious about who paid for their new mansion, considering they’re still making payments on their last home. The Daily Mail claimed that Prince Harry’s dad Prince Charles covered a portion of the $14.6 million price tag. But a source who recently spoke to Us Weekly says Harry and Meghan paid for it entirely on their own with no help from Papa Chuck.
The world found out that Meghan Markle was pregnant with Prince Harry’s baby on October 15th, 2018, with an official royal announcement from Kensington Palace. Except that’s reportedly not the day everyone found out. There was a rumor going around at the time that three days before the official announcement, Meghan dropped her new baby news to everyone at Princess Eugenie’s wedding to that Brooksbank dude. Sources quickly quieted that rumor, saying that Meghan and Harry actually told the royal family that Meghan was pregnant several days before Eugenie’s wedding. But according to the ten-millionth published excerpt from Finding Freedom (a bunch of which I’ll get into after the cut), the first rumor was allegedly the accurate one.
Prince Harry’s Childhood Best Friend Reportedly Got Iced Out For Raising Concerns About Meghan Markle
When Prince Harry got married to Meghan Markle in May 2018, he chose his older brother Prince William as his best man. Since then, we’ve learned that the title of “best man” might have been a little misleading. Harry himself has admitted that he and his brother have a bit of a de Havilland/Fontaine thing going on. So William might have just been the best human option that identifies as a man. Because now we’re learning that Harry probably didn’t have an Option B-FF, if you will. The Telegraph has published a new excerpt from Finding Freedom, the unauthorized tell-all about Harry and Meghan. In it, The Telegraph reports that Harry temporarily stopped answering calls from his childhood best friend after his friend suggested to Harry that he move in with Meghan before putting a ring on it.
