Royal Family news – Prince Charles 'so DESPERATE to ignore Prince Phillip's last wish he's adopted mafia boss mentality'

PRINCE Charles will be forced to adopt a mafia boss mentality to avoid granting one of Prince Philip's final wishes, a royal expert claims.

Philip was widely reported to have desired his youngest son, Prince Edward, to inherit the title of Duke of Edinburgh when he passed away.

But Charles is understood to be extremely reluctant to do so as it goes against his long-stated desire to slim the Royal Family down to just a few essential members – leaving no place for Edward and his family.

As a result Charles is going to have to channel Michael Corleone in The Godfather and separate business and family matters in order to see out his vision for the monarchy, according to Richard Kay in the Daily Mail.

"For all the talk of changing times, Charles's difficulty is appearing to go against his father – and his mother's – wishes," Kay writes.

"Perhaps, in the end, he will rely on that old mafia phrase: 'It's not personal, it's just business," he added.

    CONTINUED: QUEEN’S CLEANER GIVES TOP TIPS AND EXPLAINS WHY SHE NEVER PUTS BLEACH DOWN ROYAL LOO

    To make one’s royal toilet gleaming, there is a strict procedure.

    Bleach is banned as it takes the shine off porcelain, so you should use a limescale product instead. 

    The age-old debate of which way toilet roll should face has finally been answered, and it turns out the paper should roll from the front.

    And chrome taps can be kept clean using a DIY paste of 2 tbsp salt and 1 tsp white distilled vinegar – which can be applied with a toothbrush or cotton bud.

    Mix lemon juice and baking powder in equal parts into a paste and leave on mould or mildew for two hours before rinsing.

    PRINCE CHARLES ‘TO STOP EDWARD BECOMING DUKE OF EDINBURGH’

    The future King is reportedly reluctant to relinquish the title to the Earl of Wessex regardless of his 20-year wait to inherit Prince Philip’s title.

    Despite patiently playing the long game, Prince Edward could be left empty-handed as Charles holds all the cards – and he envisions a slimmed-down sovereignty.

    A source close to Charles said: “The Prince is the Duke of Edinburgh as it stands, and it is up to him what happens to the title. It will not go to Edward.”

    Following Philip’s death in April, in keeping with royal tradition, the title was passed onto eldest son Charles – and he intends to keep a firm grip on it for now.

    Rite of passage has allegedly gone out of the window, amid reports Charles strongly considered keeping the title himself.

    FOOTIE PRINCE

    Prince George went wild with his footie mad dad William and mum Kate Middleton as England scored in the first two minutes of the Euro 2020 showdown.

    The stadium erupted after Luke Shaw netted the ball, bringing the team one step closer to bringing the trophy home after a 55-year drought.

    And little George looked on top of the world as he celebrated the goal, beaming at Wills and hugging his mum in celebration.

    The duke, duchess and George sang God Save the Queen before kick-off.

    TABLE FOR TWO

    Prince Charles planned a one-on-one dinner with his son Harry – but was “dreading” it in case he said the wrong thing, it has been claimed.

    The Duke of Sussex returned to the UK from his LA home for the unveiling of Princess Diana’s memorial statue this month.

    The Sun previously revealed his dad Charles would be in Scotland for the unveiling and would not see his son.

    And The Daily Mail reported the father and son had planned to meet with a “one-on-one” dinner.

    It was claimed the future king, 72, had planned to fly back from Scotland to see his son and thrash things out after Harry’s string of explosive claims about the Royal Family. It is not know if the meeting went ahead.

    PRINCE HARRY AND MEGHAN TOOK ADVANTAGE OF THE QUEEN, EXPERT CLAIMS

    Speaking on YouTube, royal expert and former socialite Lady Colin Campbell said the Duke and Duchess of Sussex simply will not be able to get away with everything they want to get away with.

    “Harry knows that the Queen is a very tolerant person and so he and the wife have been taking full advantage of her tolerance in the hope that they would get away with everything,” she said.

    “But as we have seen and we are going to see more and more, they have not got away with everything and they’re not being allowed to get away with everything,” Lady C added.

    ITALIAN MEDIA MOCKS THE QUEEN AFTER AZZURRI WIN

    Italians have revelled in the success of their squad, with a daily sports newspaper revelling in the result and even mocking the Queen as they celebrated winning the cup.

    La Gazzetta dello Sport said: “Football is coming home. Sure, we can sing that now, even yell it without risking being punished for the crime of lèse-majesté. Because football is at home in Italy, too, and it is a beautiful blue house. And we did it in their home, in front of 60,000 England fans.

    “We turned the Three Lions into cubs. We were stronger than the good wishes sent by Queen Elizabeth, than the encouragement of Boris Johnson and the good luck message sent by Tom Cruise. This time, the Mission Impossible was completed by the Italians.”

    “It is totally unacceptable that players have to endure this abhorrent behaviour.   It must stop now and all those involved should be held accountable. W.”

    HAZZA CHOICE

    Prince Harry is “torn” between Meghan Markle and the Royal Family – after “sacrificing everything” for his wife, an expert has claimed.

    Palace insider Duncan Larcombe – author of Prince Harry: The Inside Story – claims the Sussexes may face a fight for their marriage unless they can “compromise”.

    He told Closer magazine: “Harry and Meghan seem to think they can co-exist in these two worlds – the world of British royals and American celebrity.

    “Harry is loving the American life now – but he’s still in the honeymoon phase.

    “I think coming back and seeing his brother, especially against the very moving backdrop of a memorial for their mother, will maybe make him question what he’s given it all up for.”

    NUMEROLOGIST PREDICTS BABY NUMBER THREE FOR HARRY & MEGHAN

    MEGHAN Markle and Prince Harry are to have a third child – or so their numerology predicts. 

    A leading numerologist, who analyses people’s “numbers” to determine their traits, claims to have worked out exactly what lies ahead for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.

    The practise works by matching numbers that represent the letters of a person’s full name, added with a date of birth – and we also have an individual number that will show our traits.

    Heather James, a numerologist for top dating agency Mogul Matchmakers, told Fabulous that they are extremely compatible. 

    She explained: “They definitely have a past life connection. They’ll also work brilliantly in business together. I predict that they will have a third child in three years’ time too – their numbers say it all.”

    The Queen's rangers took to social media in a cheeky plea towards litter louts, asking them to collect their "lost property", which included a suitcase full of empty beer cans.

    "LOST PROPERTY! If anyone has lost a suitcase full of empty beer cans near Loch Muick please can you get in touch with the #BalmoralRangerService to reclaim your luggage. Thank you." they wrote.

    Followers were quick to express their fury, with one saying: "Shocking! If it can be carried in full, it can be carried out empty," wrote one, while another added:"That is just disgusting – so many people do not deserve to have the outdoor access available to them – they go there because it’s such a nice area then treat it like a landfill site. It sickens those if us that show the respect for the area and for other users."

    While another said: "A disgraceful and disrespectful behaviour. To those that think that sort of behaviour is acceptable in the countryside, your [sic] NOT welcome and stay in the city."

    MEGHAN MARKLE’S EX HUSBAND FELT LIKE ‘SOMETHING STUCK TO THE BOTTOM OF HER SHOE’ 

    The producer and talent agent, Trevor Engelson told how his marriage to the Duchess came under strain as the pair were filming in different cities. 

    They had started dating in 2004, as Meghan was looking to establish herself as an actor in Hollywood, and tied the knot in Ocho Rios in September 2011. 

    But their marriage came under strain as Meghan was filming in Toronto for the hit show Suits while he was based in California – and the pair spent little time together. 

    In his book, Meghan: A Hollywood Princess, Morton wrote that the move had shocked Trevor – and he could “barely contain his anger” afterwards. 

    Morton claims that Engelson told a pal that he went from cherishing Meghan to feeling like “a piece of something stuck to the bottom of Meghan’s shoe”.
