Meghan Markle latest news – Prince Harry a 'greedy twerp’ rants Piers Morgan as Duchess joins £29M four-book 'mega-deal'

MEGHAN Markle is set to write a wellness guide as part of a four-book mega deal after a £29MILLION bidding war.

The Duchess will pen the tome as part of a contract she and Prince Harry have struck with Penguin Random House.

And one of Harry's books can only be released after the Queen's death – likely deepening the Royal Family's reservations over the deal, it's reported.

Lawyers for the couple initially said they wouldn't be commenting on those claims – but later said they were "false and defamatory" and only one memoir is planned.

    PRINCESS EUGENIE & BEATRICE ‘STUNNED’ BY PRINCE HARRY’S TELL-ALL BOOK DEAL DESPITE REMAINING CLOSE TO SUSSEXES

    PRINCESSES Eugenie and Beatrice are reportedly "stunned" by Prince Harry's tell-all book deal.

    Harry, 36, is set to publish his explosive memoir which he vowed will examine the "highs and lows" of his extraordinary life.

    Members of the Royal Family are now waiting to see what the duke will write about them.

    A senior royal reportedly told the Daily Mail: "The emotional turmoil as they wait over a year for publication is going to be torturous.

    "What's really telling is even the relatives he remains closest to, like princesses Eugenie and Beatrice, are stunned by what he's up to."

    LADY LOUISE ‘COULD USE PRINCESS TITLE’ MONTHS AFTER CHARLES AND EDWARD TITLE ROW

    The Earl and Countess of Wessex’s daughter will be legally entitled to style herself as Her Royal Highness Princess Louise – just as her cousins Beatrice and Eugenie do.

    But she could be alone in her title change as Prince Charles is said to be refusing to grant his younger brother Edward – Louise’s dad – the title of Duke of Edinburgh after their father Philip’s death.

    A source told the Daily Mail: “If Charles is going to play silly games over titles, Edward and Sophie might need to ensure that they use the titles their family already have.

    “Louise is a humble teenager and doesn’t act like a princess, but she is one – that’s a fact.”

    Edward has waited over twenty years to inherit his late father’s title – but Charles is reportedly less keen on the idea.

    PRINCE HARRY MEGA-FOUR BOOK DEAL WORTH UP TO £29MILLION

    PRINCE Harry has signed a four-book deal that may be worth up to £29million – with the second to be released after the Queen’s death.

    Harry, 36, is set to publish his explosive memoir which he vowed will examine the “highs and lows” of his extraordinary life – out during the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee next year.

    His lucrative deal – worth up to a potential £29million – with publishers Penguin Random House involves four books.

    The second of those books is due out only after the Queen has died, the Daily Mail reported.

    Aussie Simon Dorante-Day, 55, is adamant he was conceived in 1965 when he says the royal couple were first romantically linked as teenagers.

    The UK-born engineer believes the couple conceived him when Charles was just 17, and Camilla 18 and he was later adopted by a family who had links to the Royal Family.

    The father-of-nine claims his adoptive grandparents Winifred and Ernest worked as a cook and gardener for the Queen and Prince Philip.

    They apparently told him “many times” he was Charles and Camilla‘s child.

    He has now had posted a picture on Facebook of his son, Liam, in the middle of two of Queen with the words: “Ummmm. An interesting comparison”.

      HARRY'S UNPRECEDENTED PUBLISHING DEAL WITH PENGUIN RANDOM HOUSE

      The Duke of Sussex this week announced he had been working on a memoir that will be released next year – and it's been said the Palace "should be afraid."

      The news has sent shockwaves through the palace – with months of tension expected as the Royals wait to see what explosive claims Harry will release.

      It comes after it was reported that Charles was "surprised" by news that Prince Harry was writing a bombshell tell-all memoir.

      And an insider claimed that Harry seems "bizarrely hellbent" on trashing his dad Prince Charles – who feels his son's constant attacks are 'unjust'.

      On Monday, the Duke of Sussex announced an unprecedented publishing deal for his memoirs — timed for release in the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee year.

      PRINCE HARRY AND ‘FURIOUS’ MEGHAN ‘WILL RESPOND AGGRESSIVELY TO THOMAS MARKLE’

      Dad Thomas’ explosive vow to force his estranged daughter and son-in-law to let him meet his grandchildren could be the “final nail in the coffin” for their relationship, it was also claimed.

      His vow comes as a royal commentator, Jonathan Sacerdoti, warned of a “growing divide between the Sussexes and the royal family” after Harry announced his memoir would be published next year.

      Former Hollywood lighting director Thomas Markle has yet to meet his two grandkids due to his fractious relationship with his ex-Royal daughter – who he hasn’t seen since before her 2018 marriage to Harry, the Duke of Sussex.

      “I will be petitioning the California courts for the right to see my grandchildren in the very near future,” Markle, 77, told Fox News from his Rosarito, Mexico, home.

      However, relationship expert Tina Wilson told The Sun Online: “The Sussexes are likely to respond aggressively with legal paperwork back, if and when Mr Markle files his officially with the court of California.”

      ROYAL ROUNDUP

      • Harry and Meghan are ‘vicious, cruel & self-serving’ for doing Oprah Winfrey chat, says Charles’ biographer
      • Eugenie and Beatrice are ‘stunned’ by plans for the book – despite remaining close with Harry
      • Meanwhile, the last of the Duke’s belongings have now been removed from his former home, Frogmore Cottage
      • An expert claims Meghan struggled to understand her duty to the Queen – and just wanted the ‘American dream’
      • And Harry’s biographer says the memoir is ‘revenge for William always having it better’

      MEGHAN MARKLE ‘WILL WRITE A WELLNESS GUIDE AS PART OF FOUR-BOOK MEGA-DEAL AFTER £29M BIDDING WAR’

      The Duchess will pen the tome as part of a contract she and Prince Harry have struck with Penguin Random House.

      And one of Harry’s books can only be released after the Queen’s death – likely deepening the Royal Family’s reservations over the deal, it’s reported.

      Lawyers for the couple initially said they wouldn’t be commenting on those claims – but later said they were “false and defamatory” and only one memoir is planned.

      That book will be published next year. Harry vowed that it will examine the “highs and lows” of his extraordinary life.

      It will arrive during the year of his grandmother’s Platinum Jubilee.

      And his wife will also write a volume in the quartet, the Daily Mail reports.

      LEGAL BATTLES

      Thomas Markle’s legal threat comes after Meghan and Harry have repeatedly gone to court or threatened legal action over various claims.

      Two months ago, The Sun reported that Meghan will face another court hearing to decide how much money she will receive in her “torturous” privacy battle.

      The Duchess of Sussex, 39, won her privacy row against the Mail on Sunday in February after it published extracts of a letter that she wrote to her dad.

      In June 2021, Prince Harry threatened legal action against the BBC over claims he didn’t ask the Queen to name his baby daughter Lilibet.

      And this month has seen Harry and Meghan’s plan to trademark Archewell hit a setback at the hands of US lawyers.

        CHANGING OF THE GUARD RETURNS TO WINDSOR CASTLE

        The Changing of the Guard ceremony has been performed at Windsor Castle for the first time since the pandemic began.

        The 1st Battalion Grenadier Guards were given the honour of staging the event at the Queen’s Berkshire home in their familiar scarlet tunics and iconic bearskins.

        Second Lieutenant Henry Turnbull, Captain of the New Guard at Windsor Castle, said the pandemic meant he was taking part in his first Changing of the Guard and the experience had been “really special”.

        The officer, who is Platoon Commander Inkerman Company, 1st Battalion Grenadier Guards and on a gap-year commission in the Army, added: “The guardsmen have been working really, really hard over the past few weeks to prepare for this special occasion – lots of bits of kit to prepare.

        “And to take part in the first Ceremonial Guard Mount is really, really special, especially to have crowds back today with restrictions being lifted makes it extra special, nothing compares to marching up the street out in Windsor.”

        PRINCE HARRY SIGNS £29M BOOK DEAL (CONTINUED…)

        Two publishers reportedly flew out from London to Harry’s home in California and took part in an ‘auction’ for the rights to his book.

        A source told the Mail: “He conducted negotiations – he had a very ‘take it or leave it’ attitude.

        “His starting price was $25m (£18m) and the final figure was way north of that, possibly as much as $35 to 40m (£25-29m).

        “Those involved were actually very shocked by his approach, which was to look at them coldly and state his demands: $25million.”

        Harry’s wife Meghan Markle, 39, is also set to write a “wellness” guide as part of the contract with the publisher.

        PRINCE HARRY SIGNS FOUR BOOK DEAL THAT MAY BE WORTH UP TO £29MILLION

        PRINCE Harry has signed a four-book deal that may be worth up to £29million – with the second to be released after the Queen’s death.

        ECO-WARRIOR

        Harry’s alleged use of the SUV comes despite him speaking out against the dangers of climate change in the past. 

        Earlier this year, the Duke warned the issue must be tackled “at the source” and said it was “pretty depressing” that the US was “either on fire or underwater”. 

        He told ‘The Me You Can’t See: A Path Forward’ podcast that the world needed a “reckoning moment” after the pandemic, stressing that he believed climate change was one of the most two pressing issues in the world alongside mental health.

        In 2019, he told a group of youngsters at the SSE Arena in Wembley to “wake up” and act “on the damaging impact our ways of living are having on the world”.

        But it was reported that the Duke hired a private helicopter just two days before the event, with charity Friends of the Earth urging him to “consider less carbon-intensive modes of travel”. Meg and Harry also sparked claims of hypocrisy in 2019 when seen boarding a £20,000 private jet to stay in Elton John’s French villa that same year.
