Prince Harry & Meghan’s docu-series ‘smacks of desperation’ & Netflix show ‘making Royals NERVOUS’

PRINCE Harry and Meghan Markle’s new Netflix series has been branded “desperate”, leaving The Firm “nervous” about its contents.

The Duke and Duchess are reportedly filming an “at home with the Sussexes”-style docuseries for Netflix as part of their multi-million pound deal.

US reports claim the couple welcomed cameras into their £11million Montecito mansion to film candid, personal content, as the Kardashians did for their fly-on-the-wall show.

But the Queen’s former spokesman Dickie Arbiter told the MailOnline that the couple’s move appears to contradict the pair’s desire for privacy.

Arbiter told Palace Uncovered: “It smacks of desperation.

“It’s a bit rich, two people who left the UK, walked out of the Royal Family, because they wanted privacy, they’ve done nothing else but put themselves up-front and a week doesn’t go by when there isn’t some sort of statement coming out of their PR people.”

And pointing out the drama element to any successful reality series, columnist Richard Eden wrote: “The Kardashians do a reality series, the Sussexes do a docu-series.

“For any good fly-on-the-wall documentary, you need some tension, you need drama, otherwise it’s just boring.

“Netflix really do want bang for their buck. What we’re thinking now, will they be bringing Netflix with them for the Jubilee celebrations?”

  • Prince Harry & Duchess destroy hopes of repairing William relationship

    Meghan Markle & Prince Harry have shot themselves in the foot” by destroying hopes of repairing their fraught relationship with William.

    The Duke and Duchess of Sussex confirmed no subject was “off limits” during an explosive chat with Oprah Winfrey in March last year, which saw the couple speak candidly to the megastar about their ups and downs as royals.

    But Royal expert Ian Lloyd says he believes the rift between the Duke and Duchess of Sussex and William can’t be healed following a string of bombshell, tell-all interviews.

    Mr Lloyd told Express.co.uk: “I just can’t see it happening, particularly with William. There was all the stuff about Kate and Meghan crying at the wedding in the Oprah Winfrey interview.

    “I think they shot themselves in the foot with William and Kate, I don’t think they will get anywhere near them.” 

    However, he added the feud could be healed “by a long-term investment from both sides”.

    “I think it would involve Harry spending time here and doing things without giving interviews,” he continued.

  • ‘Harry hated cameras’

    Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are reportedly filming an “at home with the Sussexes”-style docuseries for Netflix as part of their multi-million pound deal.

    Royal biographer Angela Levin took to Twitter to show her surprise at the Sussexes decision.

    She wrote: “Harry wanted privacy and to be ordinary.

    “He also hated cameras.

    “But he’s ended up doing an at home docuseries for Netflix.”

    According to Page Six, the Sussexes have been working with production crews for several months now – despite Meghan’s animated show Pearl being recently dumped by the platform.

    The streaming giant apparently plans to release the series at the end of the year to coincide with the publication of Harry’s bombshell memoir.

  • Chaos for Queen’s weekend of celebrations as tube walkout announced

    LONDON Tube drivers yesterday announced a walk-out during the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee bank holiday.

    The move will bring chaos to the capital amid the four-day break in early June.

    It comes after staff in the RMT Union threatened to walk out of Euston and Green Park stations on Friday, June 3 over bullying allegations and a “toxic working environment”.

    The strikes will last the entire day.

    They will affect Victoria, Jubilee and Piccadilly line services at both stations. National Rail services at Euston will not be affected.

    With Camilla and Charles heading to Canada, hosting duties for today (May 18) have been passed on to Kate Middleton, the Duchess of Cambridge, the Palace confirmed.

  • Charles & Camilla meet members Ukrainian community during Canada

    The Duchess of Cornwall has sympathised with a Ukrainian family who fled to Canada but left their father behind to fight, saying “we are so behind you”.

    Camilla and the Prince of Wales chatted to the mother and her children when they met members of the Ukrainian community at a cathedral in Ottawa.

    The Very Reverend Volodymyr Kouchnir, dean of the St Sophie Ukrainian Orthodox Cathedral in Montreal, praised the royal family’s support of the eastern European country which has seen the prince and his wife, and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, meet Ukrainians living in the UK.

    Olha Rudenko left her family’s home in Lutsk in March and travelled with her two sons Stanislav, 16, and Lukian, nine, to safety in Canada while her husband remained to join his country’s forces combating the Russian invasion.

    The duchess asked her: “Are you coping? It must be so very hard,” when they met at the Blessed Virgin Ukrainian Orthodox Cathedral.

    After hearing her story, she added: “We are so behind you. We do worry about you so much.”

  • Duke & Duchess changed the wording in their vows

    As the couple celebrate their fourth wedding anniversary, they have made a subtle change to their vows.

    Prior to their wedding, the phrasing was altered from “man and wife” to “husband and wife”. 

    Speaking on this change, body language expert Darren Stanton, on behalf of Betfair Casino said: “Meghan seems to have a strong affection for Princess Diana and this shows through her changing the wording of her marriage vows.

    “She and Harry chose to change ‘man and wife’ to ‘husband and wife’ and remove the word ‘obey’, just like Diana and Charles did when they wed – doing so suggests Harry wanted to honour his mother on his big day and displays Meghan’s desire to have an affinity with Diana.”

  • Major royal spotted catching the Tube

    A MAJOR royal was spotted riding the Tube this week – and they even chatted with fellow commuters on the Jubilee Line.

    Prince Edward proudly travelled on the brand-spanking-new aspect of the London Underground on Monday.

    He had joined the Queen as she celebrated the opening of the purple line, named in her honour, at Paddington Station yesterday.

    The Earl of Wessex, 58, joined fellow Londoners on the new Elizabeth line after celebrating winners of the Duke of Edinburgh’s Gold award.

    A spokesman for the Royal Family confirmed the Earl was on the underground, saying: “It’s not uncommon for him to catch the tube.”

    The also royal proudly watched on as his mother topped up her Oyster card and bought a Tube ticket during her surprise appearance on Tuesday.

  • Thank you for reading my coverage this evening. Joe Gamp will be back with you tomorrow morning.

  • Meghan’s ‘something blue’

    Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are celebrating their fourth wedding anniversary tomorrow. 

    It has been revealed that Meghan’s ‘something blue’ on her wedding day was a piece of fabric from the dress she wore on her first date with Harry 

    Commenting on this, body language expert Darren Stanton, speaking on behalf of Betfair Casino said: “This hidden detail was probably intended to be a private gesture between Meghan and Harry to remind the couple of the early days of their relationship.

    “It reflects the attention to detail the couple have and shows how much they value nostalgia, with its inclusion no doubt evoking for Meghan all the reasons why she was getting married.

    “In psychology, we call this an anchor – a sight, sound, music or sound for example can transport us back to a certain memory in time, evoking all the emotions, thoughts and feelings of that particular time.”

  • Harry told to stay in US after ‘appalling’ conduct towards Queen

    Prince Harry has been advised by a royal expert to stay in the US after his “appalling” conduct towards the Queen, since Megzit.

    Speaking on Fox Business, host Stuart Varney asked if Brits want Harry on the balcony during the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee. 

    Responding to this, Nigel Farage said: “No no no no no, he’s yours, keep him, you’ve got him”.

    He added: “The sheer level of disrespect he has shown to the Queen is appalling.

    “Even worse, that interview with Oprah Winfrey was recorded when Harry knew his grandfather was dying and [he] still went there.

    “That to me, is unforgivable, a complete disgrace”.

  • Prince Naseem Hamed drives his £120k supercar through Windsor

    PRINCE NASEEM HAMED is living like royalty after driving a £120,000 Corvette Stingray supercar through Windsor.

    The ex-world featherweight boxing champion has well and truly relaxed into life away from the ring having retired in 2002.

    The 48-year-old rents a £1.4million townhouse backing on to Windsor Castle, where the Queen spends most of her private weekends.

    One onlooker who spotted Hamed in town said: “He used to be known for his killer punch and showmanship but now hardly anyone recognises him.

    “But it’s good to see Prince Naseem living in the shadows of proper royalty.”

    And he has a flash car to go alongside the expensive property.

  • Queen will be horrified as Meghan & Harry ‘determined to destroy royals’

    THE Queen and Prince Charles will be “horrified” by reports of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s new Netflix plans, a royal expert has said.

    The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are reportedly filming an “at home with the Sussexes”-style docuseries for the streaming giant as part of their multi-million pound deal.

    Royal biographer Angela Levin said a fly-on-the-wall series would be hypocritical after Prince Harry moaned royal life was similar to living in a zoo.

    She also believes the series would come as another blow to the royals – and could “steal the enjoyment from the Queen” during her Platinum Jubilee.

    Speaking to The Sun Online, Angela said: “I think the Royal Family will be horrified because if Harry’s memoirs are coming out at a similar time – which seems what Netflix want – then it’s a double attack on the Royal Family. 

    “I don’t know how they can manage this without taking strong action but I don’t think the Queen wants that.

    “At the end of her years she wants the Royal Family around her.”

  • Meg & Harry ‘shot themselves in foot’ trying to heal rift with Kate & Will

    A royal commentator has claimed that Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have “shot themselves in the foot in their bid to heal the rift with his brother Prince William and his wife, Kate Middleton.

    Ian Lloyd author of ‘The Queen: 70 Chapters in the Life of Elizabeth II’ said: “I just can’t see it happening, particularly with William.

    “There was all the stuff about Kate and Meghan crying at the wedding in the Oprah Winfrey interview.

    “I think they shot themselves in the foot with William and Kate, I don’t think they will get anywhere near them.” 

  • Prince William ‘fast becoming Her Maj’s rock

    PRINCE William’s relationship with the Queen has grown stronger as he helped Her Majesty navigate The Firm through a period of turbulence.

    William visited the United Arab Emirates on behalf of the Queen to pass on her condolences following the death of the country’s ruler Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan.

    As such, Royal expert Robert Jobson said William’s relationship with his grandmother has “improved” as their views have become “more aligned”.

    Writing for the Evening Standard, Mr Jobson said: “She [the Queen] has helped, too, to guide William through his formative years and has proved a great role model for the future king.

    “Since Philip’s passing, the Queen has turned to Charles and William more and more.

    “Indeed, both helped her navigate their way through the Harry debacle, as well as Prince Andrew’s removal from public life following the Jeffrey Epstein scandal.”

  • Harry’s Invictus Games to be backed by the Royal British Legion

    The Legion will replace charity Help The Heroes following a controversial decision by the Ministry of Defence (MoD).

    The MoD said that British Legion could provide: “more personnel, secure funding” to the team.

    Help The Heroes has long funded and trained the Invictus UK Team, but they will now have no direct involvement in the Games.

    Lis Skeet of the charity said: “Help for Heroes is incredibly proud to have trained, supported and delivered Team UK for the past five Invictus Games.

    “However, following extensive discussions, it has been decided by the MoD that the Royal British Legion will lead the end-to-end delivery of Team UK to the Invictus Games for the next five years and will also be the main funder of the programme.

    The Invictus Games is an international Paralympic-style sporting event for wounded, sick or injured members of the armed forces, as well as veterans.

    It was founded by Prince Harry in 2014.

  • Harry & Meghan to produce ‘at-home docuseries’ as part of $100m Netflix deal

    The Duke & Duchess of Sussex are set to continue their adventures in television with a reality TV style show, according to The Daily Mail.

    The pair have reportedly welcomed cameras into their $14m LA mansion, giving Netflix access to the intimate details of their life.

    This comes as part of the couple’s $100m deal with the streaming giant Netflix.

    Recently, Meghan’s animated show, Pearl, was cancelled by the platform amid declining membership.

    News that the Sussexes are filming a show of this kind will likely raise alarm bells with the Royal Family, who greatly value their privacy.

  • Nigel Farage tells Harry to stay in US

    Prince Harry has been savaged for his “appalling” conduct towards the Queen. 

    Speaking on Fox Business, host Stuart Varney asked if Brits want Harry on the balcony during the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee. 

    Responding to this, Nigel Farage said: 

    “No no no no no, he’s yours, keep him, you’ve got him”.

  • Prince Harry moaned royal life is like ‘Truman Show’ and a ZOO

    Prince Harry is a hypocrite for signing up for a fly-on-the-wall Netflix series after he moaned royal life was like the ‘Truman Show’, a royal expert said today.

    The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are reportedly filming an “at home with the Sussexes”-style docuseries for the streaming giant as part of their multi-million pound mega-deal.

    US reports claim the couple have welcomed cameras into their £11million Montecito mansion to film candid content, as the Kardashians did for their fly-on-the-wall show.

    But the move appears in direct contrast to earlier grumbles from Harry, who last year compared royal life to Jim Carey’s overly scrutinised character in ‘The Truman Show’ and living in a zoo.

    Royal biographer Angela Levin told The Sun Online: “It’s absolutely extraordinary, it shows what hypocrites they are and how they change their minds if it suits them. 

    “He just complained that his life was like a zoo being in the Royal Family and yet he’s going to have people that are going to film every minute of their life in their own home.

    She added: “He said that he wanted to be private, he wanted to be ordinary and every time he heard a camera click it took him back to very sad memories of his mother – and now he’s doing all that.”

    Harry made the ‘Truman Show’ comparison last year while talking on Dax Shepherd’s Armchair Expert podcast.

  • Prince Charles and Camilla visited Ottawa

  • Madame Tussauds London reveal Platinum Jubilee display

    Madame Tussauds London will be displaying its unique Royal Dress Collection consisting of outfits that Her Majesty The Queen’s figures have worn over her 70-year reign. 

    Madame Tussauds London’s team delved into its archive to pull the exclusive pieces that make up this spectacular collection of dresses.

    The designs selected for the Royal Dress Collection chart Queen Elizabeth II’s Coronation in 1953 right up to the colourful designs Her Majesty is well-known for today. 

    The dresses will be on display at Madame Tussauds London from Friday 27th May for two weeks only.

    The stunning dresses on display include:

    • The 1953 Coronation dress – created by Joan Tussaud.
    • Order of the Garter mantle – the exquisite ceremonial robes were first seen on The Queen’s figure in 1956.
    • Day Dress – created by Royal dressmaker Ian Thomas especially for Madame Tussauds London’s Silver Jubilee celebrations in 1977.
  • Prince Charles and Camilla pull pints at brewery

    Prince Charles pours a couple of cold ones brewed with water from icebergs — but looks unlikely to get a tip.

    He closely inspected two of his efforts during a Platinum Jubilee trip to Canada, but he had to laugh at the huge frothy head on a third.

    Charles was given a hand behind the bar by wife Camilla in Quidi Vidi harbour, at St John’s, in Newfoundland.

    Local chef Jeremy Charles handed the Prince his book Wildness — An Ode to Newfoundland and Labrador.

    Smiling broadly, Charles joked: “Is it 100 ways to cook a moose?”

    Mr Charles laughed and explained the concept as a celebration of the wild food of the region.

    Brewery co-owner Justin Fong said: “They were both great sports.

    “They’ve given us all great memories of their time here.”
