Meghan Markle news latest: Harry & Meg 'on their LAST chance' & could be 'CUT off' from royals after Jubilee friction | The Sun

PRINCE Harry and Meghan Markle are on their 'last chance' with Royal Family – and could be 'cut off', claims a royal expert.

Author Duncan Larcombe, known for his work Prince Harry : The Inside Story, has said he believes the royal couple are now facing a real test that could impact their future with the family.

Writing for Closer Magazine, Larcombe said that The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are at risk of being "cut off".

He told the publication: "The test really begins now for Harry and Meghan. They have come to the UK and to the Jubilee and really cemented themselves as royals again – which is great for their brand and something that Spotify, Netflix and Penguin will be eating up.

"But everything now depends on their behaviour moving forward. Clearly, an olive branch has been extended by the Royal Family here. But Harry and Meghan would ruin that if any private information about this weekend was spoken about to the press or revealed in a book.

"It’s last-chance saloon for them now. If anything from the weekend leaked, I imagine they will be totally cut off and that’ll be it."

Larcombe added that while this could be seen as "dangerous ground" for Harry and Meghan to be on, it's also an opportunity for them to take "a huge step in the right direction" and "prove they can be trusted".

    How Kate & Will’s home move is different from Meg & Harry’s

    PRINCE William is planning a move to a cottage on the Windsor estate – just as brother Prince Harry did when he married Meghan Markle.

    But the two big moving days, three years apart, will be very different indeed.

    The Cambridges' new pad Adelaide Cottage needs no extra taxpayer-funded security or costly refurb.

    It's understood the family will have no live-in staff, with any aides commuting to Windsor instead.

    Kate and William's decision to quietly pack up the furniture and move straight in is a far cry from Meghan and Harry's move back in 2019.

    The Sussexes, then awaiting the arrival of their first child Archie, spent millions of pounds – and around six months – updating Frogmore Cottage before packing up their things and moving in.

    The home, a gift from the Queen for their wedding, needed a huge amount of work, with sources claiming a large number of ceiling beams and floor joists were defective.

    Meghan quietly marks Grenfell tragedy anniversary

    Meghan Markle yesterday quietly marked the fifth anniversary of the Grenfell tower tragedy.

    Yesterday (Tuesday 15), it was the fifth anniversary of the tragedy.

    The official Instagram account of the Hubb Community Kitchen revealed that the Duchess of Sussex got in touch with members of the organisation to catch up.

    In a post on the social media site, the group wrote: "Today is a day spent looking back, remembering and reflecting.

    "I just found this picture of us all, on the day our cookbook came out.

    "The Duchess had wrapped a book for each one of us and wrote a lovely message to each lady on the first page.

    "Always very thoughtful, today we received a lovely voice message from the Duchess, being the 5 [fifth] years anniversary of the Grenfell tragedy, asking how we are, about our children and families and giving us news of hers.

    "Just being her beautiful kind self."

    Meghan 'ready' to turn back on UK

    It has been claimed that Meghan Markle is "ready" to turn her back on the UK for good – after her experience at the Platinum Jubilee celebrations.

    Speaking about Prince William and Kate Middleton's snub regarding their invite to Lilibet's first birthday celebration, an insider told Heat: "It was a kick in the teeth that the Cambridges didn’t attend.

    "For Meghan, it just strengthened her resolve to not come back."

    Meg & Harry 'long way off' from making peace with Royals

    A royal editor has claimed that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are a "long way off" making peace with the royals.

    Speaking on Australia's Today Show, the Daily Mirror's royal editor Russell Myers discussed the family's ongoing tensions.

    Mr Myers said: "I can imagine that he [Harry] might be a bit perturbed from what had happened.

    "I mean, he [Harry] was completely ignored."

    He added: "There was some pictures of them keeping a low profile at Trooping the Colour, the first event on the Thursday of the Platinum Jubilee celebrations.

    "There is some long lenses of them mixing with the family, Meghan, sort of, looking forlorn on her own".

    Mr Myers added: "When I was sitting, you know, a few feet away from Harry and Meghan, when William and Kate came in, and Charles and Camilla, there was no eye contact whatsoever."

    The royal editor noted that if Harry was "looking for, some sort of piecemeal" then it was a "long long way off".

    Kate & William send 'direct message' to Meg & Harry

    A royal expert has claimed that Kate Middleton and Prince William's move to Windsor has sent a "direct message" to Meghan Markle and Prince Harry.

    The move, claims royal expert Neil Sean, is a response to Prince Harry's comments about the Queen.

    Speaking on his YouTube channel, Mr Sean said: "The final decision for Prince William and Kate to make that tricky move out from Kensington Palace into Windsor Castle was sweetened up by the media.

    "But more importantly the message is basically Harry and Meghan wanted to make sure that the Queen had the right people around her so William and Kate moving directly into Windsor Castle was a direct message to say, 'we are the right people'.

    Meghan’s father now unable to speak

    It’s been reported that following a stroke, Meghan has been attempting to make amends with her father.

    Thomas Markle suffered an apparent stroke before the Platinum Jubilee meaning he was unable to attend.

    Since he was discharged, he’s being cared for by his eldest daughter Samantha, who is attempting to sue the Duchess.

    While Meghan has reportedly tried to reach out to her father, Samantha says otherwise. She has said her father can’t speak anymore, but he can type and Meghan hasn’t sent him any texts.

    Harry comforted a nervous Meghan during the jubilee

    A body expert claimed Meghan was nervous but Harry helped calm her during the celebrations.

    Meghan and Harry were in the UK earlier in the year before travelling to the Netherlands for the Invictus Games.

    During their time here they visited the Queen, but this was the first time the pair had been seen publicly at an engagement in the UK since they ‘quit’ the Royal Family in 2020.

    According to a body expert, Meghan was visibly nervous but Harry comforted her with subtle gestures.

    Etiquette expert, Elaine Swann: “Harry’s just so gracious, so attentive to his wife.

    “You can tell; there were gestures and holding their hand, giving her little glances to let her know that he’s there for one another and they certainly had this united front with one another.”

    Time for the Royal Family to leave fashion rules behind? No one listens to them anyway.

    Meghan has caused many a stir with her fashion choices in the past.

    Royals, and especially Royal women, are expected to follow strict fashion rules, but many of them are going out of style and out of the window!

    In 2018, Meghan attended the British Fashion Awards but made a big faux pas.

    She wore her hair slicked back into a bun, a black one shoulder dress with gold bangles on one wrist. But what was ‘shocking’ was her choice to wear black nail varnish.

    While she was criticised for breaking Royal rules, the point was made that Kate Middleton had also worn bold nail varnish too, and is known to wear red polish.

    The Queen reportedly hasn’t changed her nail manicure routine for decades and favour’s Essie’s pale pink ballet slippers.

    Meghan defended for ‘spitting in the face’ of British public

    After the Jubilee celebrations, many discussed whether or not Meghan should be ‘forgiven’.

    Meghan and Harry married in 2018 and while they chose to ‘quit’ the Royal Family two years later around the the time they did a tell-all interview with Oprah, it’s not clear what else the Duchess has done wrong.

    Despite that being the case, she is often the target of criticism, much like after the jubilee celebrations this year.

    Calvin Robinson, a Black right-wing critic of Meghan Markle and Black progressive movements spoke on GB News about how Meghan ‘let us down’: “She didn’t live up to the expectations because she turned around and started lecturing the British public and disrupting British institutions.

    “We welcomed her with open arms and she spat in our faces.”

    Meghan was then defended by panellist, Matthew Stadlen, who responded: “I don’t think she has committed a terrible crime. She has not committed any crime.”

    Wishing you could get Meghan’s style on a budget? Now you can!

    In 2018, the Sussexes toured Australia.

    Back then they were still working members of the Royal Family and the world were coming to terms with the idea of them as a couple.

    One thing that was undeniable and remains true is Meghan‘s sense of style – something that many continue to covet.

    During their 2018 tour of Australia, Meghan stepped out hand in hand with Harry, wearing a striped linen dress costing £218 from eco-friendly company, Reformation.

    Mark’s and Spencer now have a very similar version costing a fraction of the price, at just £35.

    Royal Family is moving on from Harry and Meghan

    There have been suggestions that the Sussexes will be asked to return to fill up the somewhat skeletal Royal Family structure.

    However, that idea has now been contradicted.

    Royal family are no longer in need of Harry and Meghan according to Montecito author, Robert Eringer.

    The author of The Duke and Duchess of Woke (or Woe) has suggested Meghan and Harry aren’t as relevant to the Royal Family as they once were and that the family is “moving on”.

    Meghan and Harry were ‘meticulously side-lined by The Firm’

    A Royal expert highlighted that Meghan and Harry had no chance of mending fences during the Jubilee.

    The couple travelled to the UK to celebrate the platinum jubilee of the Queen‘s reign.

    According to a Royal expert, Christopher Anderson, speaking on the podcast, Royally Us, Meghan and Harry may have wanted to mend fences, but had no chance.

    He explained: “The whole world was watching and waiting to see if fences would be mended, if the Sussexes got back together with the rest of the family.

    “From that standpoint, it was an unmitigated disaster. It’s hard to see how the Royal Family could’ve been any more callous towards the Sussexes.

    “They were meticulously choreographed in every instant to be side-lined and marginalised. If Harry went to London’s Jubilee celebrations hoping to mend fences, that didn’t happen.”

    Meghan continues to try to mend things with her father after four-year rift

    Thomas Markle was unable to attend Meghan’s wedding in 2018.

    The father of three suffered two heart attacks and needed to recover so was unable to travel to the UK for the wedding of his youngest child to Prince Harry.

    More recently, Markle Sr suffered a stroke and so missed the Queen‘s jubilee celebrations though he had previously intended to be there.

    Due to het father’s ill health, Meghan is reportedly attempting to mend fences with her father before it’s too late.

    Thomas Markle has been very vocal about Meghan’s behaviour and how both she and her husband had insulted the Queen.

    Fears Meghan’s ex-husband with reveal private information about her in new tell-all book

    Before marrying Prince Harry, Meghan was married to a TV producer.

    The former actress had a life before Prince Harry that included her own job and previous relationships, including one that ended in marriage and divorce.

    Tom Engleson was married to the now-Duchess of Sussex for two years and despite marrying and having two children with his current wife, Royal expert, Neil Sean believes Engleson may have “an axe to grind”.

    Sean explained that Engleson may feature in the tell-all book by Tom Bower: “This particular individual would truly have a remarkable story because, after all, he would have first-hand experience of what it was like, yes what it was like, to be married the first time around to the actress from Suits.”

    A language expert has described her smile as ‘authentic’.

    The 40-year-old went for a walk with Kate and William recently and could be seen smiling, a smile that Judi described to Express.co.uk: “As her appearance at St Paul’s proved during the jubilee, she has a smile that is both beautiful and bulletproof.”

    Meghan & Harry caught in Netflix ‘mess’

    A royal expert has claimed that Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s Netflix plans were dismantled during the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee weekend. This is when palace aides stopped them from taking photos with the Monarch.

    Speaking to TODAY, Russell Myers claimed: “The Queen did get to meet her great-granddaughter Lilibet. There was no official photography being placed but the reports were that Harry and Meghan did want their friend Misan Harriman to come and have a picture with the Queen.

    “Of course that would have been a nice family moment but the palace were absolutely adamant that it couldn’t take place.

    “You can’t blame them because Harry and Meghan are still rumoured to be doing this fly on the wall documentary with Netflix. It’s all getting quite messy.”

    Shocking poll showed Meghan Markle and Prince Andrew to be LEAST favourite Royals

    Meghan Markle has been compared to Prince Andrew despite being polar opposites.

    When Prince Andrew settled the Virginia Giuffre court case, Omid Scobie wrote for the Independent: “Didn’t he want to use that moment to fight for his innocence?
    "A final chance to prove he didn’t do the heinous things he had been accused of? I know if faced with the same predicament, I would.”

    Emma Mackenzie wrote for the publication: "While Andrew certainly regrets his association with Epstein, it was at best ill-advised and shows a serious lack of judgement.

    "Meghan, on the other hand, had only the audacity to be herself and to take the necessary steps to protect her mental health."

    Piers Morgan takes huge swipe at Meghan Markle, comparing her to Amber Heard

    It is pretty clear Piers is not the Duchess of Sussex's biggest fan, and has a known history of berating her via social media.

    The television presenter has taken to Twitter once again to bash Meghan Markle.

    He said: "Amber Heard is like Meghan Markle – the more she whines & plays the victim, utilising her best acting skills, the less I believe her."

    One Twitter user replied: "She dumped you, move on.

    "Secondly, that last sentence is really dangerous. 'The more she whines and plays the victim… the less I believe her' This is really unhelpful for abuse victims.

    "Some people speak out again and again and are never believed."

    Another wrote: "Jesus you can't leave that girl alone can you."
