Royal Family latest news: The Queen 'should be shown respect' by Meghan as Charles, William & Harry remember Philip

WILLIAM and Kate 'have no control' over Harry & Meghan's actions as the Sussexes stole the limelight once again with their Time 100 cover.

Royal expert and author Duncan Larcombe says Kate and William will be concerned about the photos, telling OK! : "Kate and William are in danger of being dragged into a transatlantic popularity contest.

"They will feel anxious over the cover and everything Harry and Meghan do as it always seems to reflect on them.

"William and Kate are concerned about absolutely everything that comes out of America in regards to Harry and Meghan, especially Harry's tell-all warts and all memoir that's gonna hit the shelves sometime next year. They have no control over the narrative."

Meanwhile, Prince Philip's decisions on who would share in his assets won't be revealed because of his wife's constitutional role, judges say.

The royal, who died aged 99 on April 9, had an estimated £30million to share among loved ones. But the details of the total amount, as well as those bequeathed, won't be revealed for almost 100 years – if at all.

    DIANA PREDICTED SHE WOULD DIE 'FROM BRAKE FAILURE AND SERIOUS HEAD INJURY' IN NOTE

    She even wrote a letter two years before her death claiming that Prince Charles was plotting to kill her so he could marry Ms Legge-Bourke.

    In the note, Diana predicted she would die through "brake failure and serious head injury".

    The princess is said to have been obsessed with the mistaken idea of an affair – a false allegation deeply upsetting to the younger nanny.

    Mark Stephens, a media lawyer with the law firm Howard Kennedy, said: “The BBC’s handling of Bashir was a catastrophe turned into a disaster and as a consequence, the corporation recognises the least said, the soonest mended.”

    Bashir denies faking documents connected to the nanny. He says notes made by Earl Spencer and attributed to him were in fact comments made by the princess.

    BBC TO PAY EX ROYAL NANNY SIGNIFICANT DAMAGES (CONTINUED…)

    The BBC has now recognised the harm caused to the 56-year-old and is understood to have offered her a six-figure sum, the Telegraph reports.

    Sources told the publication an agreement will likely be reached by the end of the month. And the broadcaster is going to pay out more than £100,000, it's claimed.

    One insider said: “Tiggy Legge-Bourke was right at the centre of Bashir’s manipulation and it is right that the damage caused to her is recognised by the BBC."

    In May, an independent inquiry concluded Bashir had used deceit to secure his interview with Diana.

    The princess used the discussion to reveal that "there were three of us in this marriage" – a reference to Camilla Parker Bowles. Lord Dyson, who conducted the probe earlier this year, was supplied with handwritten notes made by Earl Spencer.

    BBC TO PAY ‘SIGNIFICANT’ DAMAGES TO EX ROYAL NANNY OVER LIES SPREAD BY DISGRACED MARTIN BASHIR

    THE BBC has given a significant pay-out to William and Harry's former nanny after she was smeared by rogue reporter Martin Bashir, it is claimed.

    Tiggy Legge-Bourke has reportedly been offered a settlement over false claims made by Bashir as he desperately tried to secure his Panorama interview with Princess Diana.

    An official inquiry concluded Bashir told Diana that her husband Charles was in love with the nanny, who now goes by Tiggy Pettifer.

    And Diana's brother Earl Spencer says she was also told Charles and Ms Legge-Bourke enjoyed a two-week holiday together.

    Most damagingly of all, it's alleged Bashir went further – and claimed Charles was having an affair with the nanny, who had gone on to have an abortion. Bashir even produced a fake receipt showing payment for the termination, it's claimed.

    THE QUEEN ‘WON’T OVERRULE CHARLES’ PLAN TO KEEP ANDREW AWAY FROM PUBLIC DUTIES’, CLAIMS ROYAL BIOGRAPHER ANGELA LEVIN

    The Queen won’t “overrule” her eldest, who reportedly wishes to keep the Duke of York out of the public eye after damaging sex assault allegations.

    However, the monarch “adores” Andrew and “enjoys his company”, expert Angela Levin said today.

    Ms Levin, who has written an authorised biography on Prince Harry, called Andrew “naïve and arrogant” as the royal faces a legal wrangle in a US civil court.

    In an interview with Julia Hartley-Brewer on TalkRADIO, she said the Queen had ruled out Andrew’s return to duties.

    “She said he couldn’t be,” she said.

    “She adores Andrew and enjoys his company.

    “I think that she won’t overrule what Charles says. The rest of the royals won’t want him to do that.”

    HARRY & MEG'S TIME 100 COVER IS SPLITTING OPINION IN THE US

    The Mail’s Diary Editor Richard Eden told Palace Confidential that the couple "seems to divide opinion in the States just as much as here in the UK".

    Palace Confidential host Jo Elvin questioned whether the magazine cover showed the divide between a more supportive coverage of them in America as opposed to the UK.

    Mr Eden said: "I should say there are a lot of Americans who feel very strongly about this.

    "If we say, 'Oh Americans love this'. Well, lots of them do not!

    "There have been a few articles recently that have been very negative about Harry and Meghan."

    Mr Eden added: "They certainly seem to divide opinion in the States just as much as here."

    EXPERT SAYS MEGHAN & HARRY’S TIME MAGAZINE COVER IS A ‘STAB IN THE HEART’ TO QUEEN’S REPUTATION

    The Duke and Duchess of Sussex were this week named in the magazine’s list of top 100 most influential people in the world.

    Eric Schiffer, chairman of Reputation Management Consultants, told Newsweek: “Meghan and Harry landing a cover spot of Time Magazine’s 100 Most Influential People will be seen as a stab in the heart of the Monarchy’s reputation because of the greater implicit credibility it affords them and their previous claims against the crown.”

    Schiffer added: “The strategy Harry’s built is to out gun William and to be seen as the authentic prince on a global stage and it’s been beautifully executed.

    “They’re very disciplined at it.

    “The combination of the leaks and the framing of themselves in part as victims of certain behaviour and on top of that connecting in such authentic ways with global Gen Z and Millennial audiences and allowing them to actually feel what it’s like to interact with a member of the royal family, that on a human level has been powerful.”

    PRINCE WILLIAM REVEALS MOMENT YOUNG BOY SWORE AT PRINCE PHILIP… BUT SAYS HIS REACTION WAS HILARIOUS

    PRINCE William has revealed the moment a young boy swore at Prince Philip – but says his reaction was hilarious.

    The royal told how the teenager had been completing a hike for his Duke of Edinburgh Award when he made the rude remark to the scheme’s founder.

    The Duke of Cambridge and Philip came across two young walkers on the Queen’s Balmoral estate as the teens took part in a expedition to achieve their award.

    William said: “[Philip] stopped and wound down his window and said, ‘Good morning. How are you getting on?’

    “To which the smallest young chap at the back turned round and effectively said, ‘Jog on Grandpa!’”

    PHILIP ORDERED HARRY TO ‘COME BACK ALIVE’ FROM AFGHANISTAN

    Harry, 37, opens up about his dry sense of humour in a touching television tribute to his grandfather, who died in April aged 99.

    Harry filmed his segment in California separately from the rest of the Royal Family.

    His brother William and dad Charles were among others remembering Prince Philip in clips revealed today ahead of Wednesday’s hour-long BBC special.

    PRINCE ANDREW's STRATEGY TO ASSAULT CASE IS DAMAGING THE MONARCHY, AIDES FEAR

    PRINCE Andrew is being failed by his lawyers whose "wall of silence" strategy towards sex abuse claims is damaging the monarchy, aides fear.

    Royal sources say the Duke's "policy of evasion" regarding the serving of legal papers by his accuser Virginia Giuffre’s lawyers gives the impression he "has something to hide."

    Royal insiders told the Telegraph: "There is growing disquiet over the advice being given to the Duke by his London legal team in the face of this potentially highly damaging lawsuit which also has wider reputational implications for the institution of the monarchy.

    "The legal team’s wall of silence and policy of evasion only adds to the impression [that] the Duke has something to hide and there is widespread concern that things have been allowed to get to this point."

    The Duke of York is set to face a lawsuit in the US after the High Court in the UK agreed to serve him papers.

    This week, Andrew's lawyer argued the case should be dismissed and branded it "baseless" during a 30-minute telephone pre-trial hearing.

    LIES TO SMEAR NANNY

    It was claimed in the documents that Bashir told Diana her husband was “in love with” Ms Legge-Bourke, who cared for William and Harry between 1993 and 1999.

    Bashir denies spreading the smears.

    However, whatever the source, Diana became so convinced of a relationship between Charles and Ms Legge-Bourke that she confronted the young woman at a Christmas party.

    She is said to have approached the blameless nanny in 1995 and said: “So sorry about the baby.”

    She even wrote a letter two years before her death claiming that Prince Charles was plotting to kill her so he could marry Ms Legge-Bourke.

    TRUMP ADVISER SAYS MEGHAN ‘NEEDS TO START RESPECTING THE QUEEN AND STOP TRYING TO PUSH HER OWN INTERESTS’

    MEGHAN Markle needs to start respecting the Queen and stop trying to push her own interests, Donald Trump's former adviser has said.

    "Number one rule of being a Royal is don't disrespect the Queen," President Trump's Senior Adviser Jason Miller told The Sun.

    The Duke and Duchess of Sussex were this week named in Time magazine's list of top 100 most influential people in the world. The couple's inclusion in the list comes six months after they accused an unnamed member of the Royal Family of racism in their explosive Oprah interview.

    Meghan also told Oprah she felt suicidal while working as a royal – but that staff had dismissed her pleas for help.

    Speaking of Meghan's place in the family, Miller said: "I think she should have more respect for the institution of the Royals and I think that when you marry into the Royal family there's a certain sense of decorum that I think that you’re signing up for that you need to check some of your thoughts and ambitions at the door.

    "I think that when you have the Queen you have to be respectful of the queen," he told The Sun.

    'PEOPLE WILL GET BORED OF HARRY AND MEGHAN' (CONTINUED…)

    And Royal historian Hugo Vickers says he believes people will get “bored” of the kind of “touchy-feely” content the Sussexes have made so far.

    He told the Express: “I’m of the sort of generation that finds all this touchy-feely stuff rather unattractive, and I don’t really understand it and I don’t go for it either.

    “So, I wonder, what have they got to say, will their message get any better as time goes on?

    “Or will it just be more of the same? And people will get bored with them, won’t they?

    “That’s what I think will happen.”

    PEOPLE WILL GET BORED OF HARRY AND MEGHAN, ROYAL EXPERT WARNS

    PEOPLE will "get bored" of Meghan and Harry's "touchy-feely" content as they continue to sign deals without delivering, a royal expert has warned.

    The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have forged a number of lucrative deals since stepping down from royal life, including multimillion-dollar partnerships with Netflix, Spotify and Apple.

    But more than a year on from joining forces with Netflix, the couple have only announced two major productions – Harry’s ‘Heart of Invictus’ about the Invictus Games and Meghan’s animated children’s show ‘Pearl’.

    They've also still only released one 34-minute podcast in their nine months with the platform – despite promising much more.

    Six months after Meghan tried to get him fired from Good Morning Britain, Piers returned to the pub where the pair first met.

    HARRY & MEGHAN’S SIGNATURE HOLLYWOOD POSE IS ‘UNNATURAL AND STAGED’ WITH ONE TELLING SIGN GIVING IT AWAY, SAYS EXPERT

    The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are regularly seen staring into one another’s eyes whenever a camera comes out.

    And according to body language expert Judi James, while a very romantic shot, the pose is far from the natural and candid shot that the pair want to convey.

    Here she tells Fabulous Digital what the Sussex’s signature pose REALLY means…

    “Eye-ball to eye-ball gazing can be used by a couple to transmit all sorts of messages, from ‘I love you’ to ‘Put that pint down, we’re leaving!’.

    When a couple use prolonged bouts like Harry and Meghan though, it signals exclusivity; an engagement in intimate and private non-verbal conversations, and emphatically equal amounts of devotion and romantic attraction.

    WHERE DO PRINCE HARRY AND MEGHAN MARKLE LIVE?

    Prince Harry and Meghan live in an £11million mansion in Monticito, Santa Barbara, California.

    The area is home to A-listers such as Oprah Winfrey and Ellen Degeneres.

    It's the first permanent home in North America for the couple, who, since stepping down from royal duties in January, have rented homes in California and Canada.

    This is also the first home that the couple have owned as private citizens.

    After Harry and Meghan got married, the pair moved to Frogmore Cottage on the private Windsor Estate.

    It sits on 33 acres of private gardens within the Home Park, adjoining Windsor Castle in Berkshire.

    It was there in the adjoining grounds of Windsor Castle that the pair married on May 19, 2018, at St George's Chapel, followed by their reception in Frogmore House's grounds.

    The subsequent refurb cost taxpayers a whopping £2.4million, which the couple have now paid back.

    Their former residence boasted a designer kitchen and a refitted bathroom.

    The main renovation took about six months.

      Prince Harry's mum Princess Diana died in a car crash in Paris in 1997.

      Speaking to Newsweek, he recalled the decision — made on his behalf — for him to follow his mum Diana’s coffin after her death.

      Harry said: “My mother had just died, and I had to walk a long way behind her coffin, surrounded by thousands of people watching me while millions more did on television.

      WHAT IS PRINCE HARRY'S FULL NAME?

      Prince Harry’s full name is Henry Charles Albert David, and he is styled as His Royal Highness Prince Henry of Wales.

      He uses Wales in lieu of a traditional surname as was referred to as Captain Harry Wales when in the military.

      The Queen officially gave her consent for his wedding to Meghan, releasing a statement using the couple’s real names.

      It said: “'My Lords, I declare My Consent to a Contract of Matrimony between My Most Dearly Beloved Grandson Prince Henry Charles Albert David of Wales and Rachel Meghan Markle, which Consent I am causing to be signified under the Great Seal and to be entered in the Books of the Privy Council.”

      Prince Harry needed her permission to marry under the Succession to the Crown Act.

      The prince attained the rank of Captain in 2011, working his way up from Cornet, or Second Lieutenant in 2006, to Lieutenant in 2008.

      EXPLAINED: HOW OLD IS PRINCE HARRY & IS HE A PRINCE?

      The flame-haired prince is 1.86m (or 6'1" feet) tall, and was born Prince Henry of Wales on September 15, 1984, and is 37 years old.

      He's the younger son of Prince Charles and the late Princess Diana.

      Following his marriage to Meghan Markle on May 19, 2018, the Prince assumed his new title as the Duke of Sussex.

      He still holds this title and remains a prince despite deciding not to use His Royal Highness any more.

      Harry served in the Army for 10 years, undertaking two tours of Afghanistan and rising to the rank of Captain.

      After the Army, he spent his time on his charity work and promoting causes such as the Invictus Games as well as being more open about mental health issues.

      In January 2020, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex stepped down from their roles as senior royals, in order to become "financially independent".
