Meghan Markle’s Brother Lashes Out: She Abandoned Her Family!

We're just over three months away from the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.

As expected, royal obsessives the world over are already giddy with anticipation.

Sadly, just as unsurprising is the fact that opportunists and con artists are coming out of the wood work hoping to exploit Meghan in her remaining days as a civilian.

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry: In Love!

And some of them are members of her immediate family.

It all started when Meghan's half-sister, Samantha Grant, threatened to publish a tell-all.

Amazingly, it looks like she managed to land a publisher, but it sounds like the book won't be loaded with the bombshell revelations the public is hoping for.

Meghan and Samantha reportedly haven't had any contact with one in well over a decade, and sources say they weren't close with one another for several years before that.

So unless you're hankering for some insights into Meg's high school study habits, the book probably won't do much for you.

Signing for a Fan

Just last month, the sketchy sibling started going by Samantha Markle and managed to score a deal with TLC to produce a special about Meghan.

And now it seems she's not the only member of the Markle clan who's looking to line their pockets.

Apparently, Meghan also has a half-brother named Tom Markle Jr.

In addition to having a name that sounds like an anagram for a Harry Potter villain, Tom is apparently even more shady than Samantha.

Rather than threatening to share Meghan's secrets with the world, he took the more direct route of asking Meg for money for a personal security detail, and then publicly calling her out for abandoning her family when she refused.

In a recent interview with In Touch, Tommy Marks shared the contents of the email he received from Meghan's lawyers that basically told him to go do his panhandling elsewhere.

"My lawyer had a phone meeting with her lawyer, and he emailed me some of [Meghan’s] direct words. She said, ‘That’s distant family and I don’t know those people,'" Tom told the tabloid.

"That’s pretty harsh," he adds calling the email "a slap in the face" and "below the belt."

"I spent a lot of time with her growing up," Tom says.

In the emails, Tom asks Meghan and Buckingham Palace officials to “take some action to protect [him]," which apparently meant not only security services but protection from what he claims are inaccurate media reports.

“There was a time where people were following me around at work, taking pictures and posting horrible stories about me and my family saying I’m a white supremacist, a drug addict and a dealer, all this crap that just isn’t true,” Tom tells In Touch.

"My attorney was reaching out to her people and the palace to basically [help us] try to get a retraction for all these false stories in [countries] where there are different laws." 

Reps for Harry were apparently more polite than Meghan's lawyers, telling Tom, “We are so sorry to hear you have been having a tough time with the media."

Of course, they still didn't offer him any sort of assistance with the problem.

We're assuming Meghan is currently being trained in how to tell someone to shove off using proper royal decorum.

Princesses Can’t Act, Or Meghan Markle Would Be a Bond Girl

Being a princess requires sacrifice. It’s not all mice making clothes for you and singing with tigers. One of the biggest sacrifices is you can’t exactly be an actress, it’s not really something a member of the royal family does, even if said royal is already an actress.

So, Meghan Markle is giving up acting to marry Prince Harry, and we’re getting a look at what that means, exactly, from a piece in The Sun. Markle’s career was just about to take off in a major way, to say the least, and she was on the short list of candidates to be the next Bond girl.

A film source said: “Meghan fits the role of a Bond girl perfectly. She’s glamorous and sexy and a good actress.

“The role more recently has gone to actresses deemed to be rising stars, and Meghan certainly was seen as that before her relationship with Harry became public.

“The brief was to find a glamorous rising star, specifically someone American or Canadian.”

Basically, Meghan Markle was a princess before she ever met Prince Harry. Which is good, because marrying a prince doesn’t actually make you a princess, it makes you a duchess, probably, it’s up to Her Maj what title you actually get, at least in England. Grace Kelly got to be a princess, but Meghan Markle, like Kate Middleton and Lady Diana, will never actually be a princess.

In addition to not being a Bond girl or a princess, Markle is also leaving her role as Rachel Zane on Suits, and will be retiring from acting altogether so as not to interfere with the traditional job of the royal family, which is being seen at places and waving.

As Markle and Prince Harry head towards their wedding day, a bit of controversy has arisen in the USA. You see, Meghan and Harry are friends with Barack and Michelle Obama, and they want to invite them to the wedding. But they don’t want to invite America’s racist uncle, Donald Trump, to a function that isn’t a state event. It’s also considerate, because Trump probably has an important golf game that weekend anyway. But people sure are mad at the prospect of old Donnie being snubbed from the wedding of people he doesn’t know or like in favor of someone the bride and groom are friends with.

Personally, I think it’s probably hard enough for Markle having to sacrifice her acting career, one where she could have been the next Hollywood It girl, for the sake of her husband. We really shouldn’t add the indignity of having Donald Trump at the ceremony on top of that.

A Royal Christmas: Meghan! Harry! Kate! William! Together!

Feud between Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton?

What feud between Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton?!?

In honor of Christmas on Monday, the former USA Network actress Meghan Markle and Prince Harry walked to the Church of St. Mary Magdalene with Prince William and Kate Middleton.

This marked the first time all four have been seen in public since Markle and Harry announced their engagement.

And we're got the photos to prove it!

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle Release World’s Most Beautiful Engagement Photos

Your Royal Highness?

Based on the following official engagement photos of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, it's really more like the following:

Such royal hotness!

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle Engagement Pic

The British muffin of stud and the former USA Network actress have posed for a series of breathtaking pictures that are taking the Internet by sexy storm.

They've been unveiled by Kensington Palace, whose Twitter account left the following simple message on the wake of these wonderful portraits:

"Prince Harry and Ms. Meghan Markle have chosen to release official photographs to mark their engagement."

The two main snapshots were taken by fashion photographer Alexi Lubomirski earlier this week at Frogmore House, Windsor.

One is color (above), one is black and white (below) and a third has also been posted on social media as a sort of thank you to the public for showing such enthusiasm for the first pair.

In the above photograph, Markle leans on her fiance's leg as they pose on a set of stairs, the beauty donning a black gown and the hunk sporting a blue suit.

They're holding hands, with Markle showing off her engagement ring very clearly for the camera.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle 4 Eva!

Directly above, meanwhile, the Royal and the soon-to-be Royal nuzzle in close together and appear to be laughing over something.

Perhaps over those silly rumors that Markle is feuding with Kate Middleton.

“It was an incredible honor to be asked to document this wonderful event, but also a great privilege to be invited to share and be a witness to this young couple’s love for one another,” Lubomirski through the Palace, adding:

“I cannot help but smile when I look at the photos that we took of them, such was their happiness together.”


Have you ever seen a happier, better looking couple?!?

Due to the overwhelmingly positive responses to these pictures, Kensington Palace was kind enough to release a third image.

"As a way to say thank you, [Harry and Meghan] have decided to share this candid photograph from the day of their portrait sittings directly with all of you," read the caption to the following photo.

Meghan Markle Engagement Photo

Simply glorious, right?

The public release of these pictures comes just a day after Markle joined her man and other senior members of the royal family for Queen Elizabeth II’s annual Christmas lunch at Buckingham Palace.

She is also scheduled travel to Sandringham with Harry to join the royal family for Christmas.

How special!

We guess things really are serious between these stars.

Following weeks of rumors, Harry and Markle got engaged a few weeks ago and have already announced that they will wed on May 19 at St George’s Chapel, Windsor Castle.

We hope to be invited.

Meghan Markle: Controversial Writer Pens Tell-All, Uses Phrase "Markle Sparkle"

In the span of just a few short years, Meghan Markle has gone from Deal or No Deal "briefcase girl" to star of a USA network legal drama to future royalty.

It's a trajectory that's sure to inspire both misty-lensed Hallmark Channel romances and 99 cent erotic e-books with titles like The Finger Prince.

Meghan Markle in Britain

We don't blame the public for being fascinated with Meghan's story.

We all like to think we'll be saved from our desperate, mediocre lives when someone with tremendous power and influence recognizes how special we are.

Basically, Meghan is Harry Potter and Harry is Dumbledore and ... well, we won't get into the importance of knowing how to work a wand in both stories, but you get the idea.

The point of that confusing and oddly profane metaphor is that Meghan and Harry's romance is the stuff of bestsellers.

But it won't be J.K. Rowling telling the tale.

Meghan and Harry

No, it appears the first to cash in on the international Harkle obsession will be British writer Andrew Morton, a provocateur who's previously authored biographies on Tom Cruise, Madonna, and Angelina Jolie.

Somehow, not having not been smothered to death by the avalanche of smug that came from researching those three, Morton lived to tell tell the tale of Harry's mother, Princess Di, in a bestseller titled Diana: Her Story.

Despite the fact that the book was based largely on a secretly recorded conversation between Diana and a friend, Morton was able to secure the late princess' approval of the project.

In other words, this is a dude who knows where the bodies are buried, and now he's coming for MegMar:

“I was a fan of Meghan’s long before she met Prince Harry,” British writer Andrew Morton wrote to Fox News.

The Betrothed Couple

“She has star quality, what some have called ‘the Markle Sparkle.'"

As a man who has the sack to use the phrase "Markle Sparkle" publicly, you can bet that Morton won't shy away from all the gritty details of Meghan's 36 years.

Or, he'll just engage in 400-plus pages of ass-kissing, because the royals have basically made his career.

Based on his comments on the project, we're guessing it's the latter:

"Confident, groomed and camera ready, she is a dramatic contrast to the blushing, coy royal brides of recent history," Morton recently told Fox News

"The warmth and affection Meghan and Harry displayed during their engagement interview years is light years away from the stilted ‘whatever love means’ conversation with Prince Charles and Lady Diana Spencer in 1981.”

Meghan Markle in 2015

Morton added:

“Meghan is an exciting and genuinely charismatic addition to the royal family – she makes the House of Windsor seem relevant again. Hers is a fascinating story and I can’t wait to tell it.”

Basically, it sounds like dude is a living Instagram filter.

His version of Meghan has a flower crown and shoots out rays of angelic light when she smiles.

So yeah, you may have to wait a bit longer for Markle to get the warts-and-all treatment.

Or you can just go ahead and download The Finger Prince to your Kindle.

We're not here to judge.

Meghan Markle Rocks Sexy Santa Outfit, Reminds Us Prince Harry Is a Lucky Man

Before Meghan Markle met Prince Harry and became future royalty, she was just another Los Angeles-based model and actress with dreams of success and stardom.

Sure, she enjoyed some pre-Harry success and lived out every young girl's dream of starring in a USA Network legal drama, but like so many others struggling to make it in Hollywood, Meghan had to pay her dues.

Meghan Markle on Deal or No Deal

And in her case, that meant holding a briefcase and pretending to be amused by Howie Mandel.

Fortunately, Deal or No Deal was taken off the air due to a government probe into the inhumane demands of its producers.

Or it was canceled because everyone got sick of watching a super-elaborate version of "guess how many fingers I'm holding behind my back."

We forget which.

Whatever the case (pun fully intended), there's been a resurgence of interest in the show now that one of its former models is soon to become a royal.

And this week, the retroactive ogling has taken on a seasonal tone, thanks to this photo of Meghan wearing a sexy Santa outfit.

Meghan Markle as Sexy Santa

Unlike the other girls, Meghan seems to be genuinely enjoying Howie's antics in this pic, which is a testament to her acting ability.

It's also a reminder that Meghan is the opposite of a stuffy royal, which is probably exactly why Harry was drawn to her.

And of course, like the now-famous photo of her in college, this pic reminds us that Meghan hasn't aged, and presumably will never age.

That's also a pretty nice bonus for ya boy Harold.

In a way, we suppose being a briefcase girl on Deal or No Deal is pretty good preparation for life as a royal.

Meghan and Harry

You have to spend a lot of time standing around and pretending you're not bored out of your mind.

You have to feign joy whenever the peasants get all excited.

And of course, you have to await the deaths of those more powerful than yourself, so that you can move up the briefcase girl line of succession.

We're pretty sure that's how it works.

The important thing is, Meghan proved that the always-questionable sexy Santa get-up can work under certain circumstances, and for that, we thank her.

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry: Wedding Date, Venue Set!

Unless you've been living under a rock - like, WAY FAR DOWN under a rock - then you are likely aware of the major news this week:

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are engaged!

At last!

Meghan and Harry

The very long-gestating rumor is now an even more exciting reality, as the Royal Family itself released the following statement on Sunday evening:

His Royal Highness and Ms. Markle became engaged in London earlier this month. Prince Harry has informed Her Majesty The Queen and other close members of his family.

Prince Harry has also sought and received the blessing of Ms. Markle’s parents.

In the subsequent 24 hours since this announcement was made, the Internet has been blowing up with congratulatory messages, quotes from various British people and enticing tidbits of information.

Did you know Harry proposed over a roasted chicken dinner, for instance?

Or that Markle's engagement ring is partly comprised of diamonds once worn by Princess Diana?

Or even that Markle's pet corgi apparently loves Harry?

The beloved couple opened up about these pressing pieces of information, along with plenty more, in their first-sit down interview as an engaged couple.

Meghan Markle is Happy

And now Markle and Harry have revealed two more major bombshells:

  1. Their wedding date.
  2. Their wedding venue.

At a special briefing at Buckingham Palace on Tuesday, official Royal sources confirmed the Wedding of the Decade will take place in May at St. George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle.

During said briefing, the couple’s Kensington Palace spokesman added that the soon-to-be newlyweds are “extremely grateful following the warm public response” to their new status.

Added this spokesperson:

“Windsor is a very special place for Prince Harry, and he and Ms. Markle have regularly spent time there during the last year.

"They are delighted that the beautiful grounds of Windsor Castle will be where they begin their lives as a married couple.”

Look for Queen Elizabeth to be in attendance at the event, which will be treated like a national holiday across Great Britain.

The day will be “shaped so that members of the public” feel like a part of it, the Palace explained, saying:

“This wedding, like all weddings, will be a moment of fun and joy and reflect the characters” of both the bride and groom.

Markle, meanwhile, will be baptized and confirmed in the Church of England prior to the nuptials.

She's already going through the process of becoming a British citizen.

In a wide-ranging interview with BBC News, Markle confirmed yesterday that she is basically retired from acting.

The couple also said they were set up by a mutual friend and that they've been taken aback by some of the racial harassment that has stemmed from Markle's mixed heritage.

"At the end of the day I am proud of who I am and where I have come from," said Markle, adding:

"We have never put any focus on that, we have just focused on who we are as a couple."

As for what other Royal family think of the engagement?

The Prince and The One

“William and I are absolutely thrilled,” Kate Middleton told reporters today at the Foundling Museum in London.

“It’s such exciting news. It’s a really happy time for any couple and we wish them all the best and hope they enjoy this happy moment.”

Middleton, of course, is expecting her third child with Prince William in April.

What a spring it will be for our friends across the Atlantic!

Prince Harry Is About to Announce His Engagement to Meghan Markle

Price Harry, who looks nothing like his father or older brother but suspiciously like his mother’s lover James Hewitt, is expected to announce his engagement to Meghan Markle, star of the USA law drama Suits soon.

The couple have been dating for about a year and a half, and have reportedly asked the rest of the Royal Family to choose a date that would be convenient for them to announce their engagement.

Here’s a bit of interesting lore for you about the Royals, both of which you’ll know if you’ve been watching The Crown on Netflix. King Edward VIII was forced to abdicate the throne after marrying an American divorceé, Wallace Simpson. The Queen’s sister, Princess Margaret, was unable to marry the man she loved, Peter Townsend, because he was divorced. These were both, at the time, huge scandals that rocked the nation. And now, just over 80 years after King Edward’s abdication, his great grand-nephew is marrying an American divorceé and no one cares at all. King Edward will either be smiling upon their union or they’re going to have to take out poltergeist insurance on Buckingham Palace.

I suppose it helps Harry that Prince Charles, Princess Anne and Prince Andrew are all divorced as well. His uncle Edward is the only person in that family other than his grandmother who has been able to keep a marriage together.

Once Harry and Markle are married, they’ll be given a peerage, probably the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, and they’ll have one job, which will be not embarrassing Harry’s brother William by doing something stupid like wearing a Nazi uniform to a fancy dress party or running around Las Vegas bare-ass naked. In other words, there will be a bit of a learning curve.

Meghan Markle & Prince Harry: Headed For a Breakup! (Psychic Claims)

Well, it looks like we have some bad news for the star of the USA network’s third best-loved series behind Mr. Robot and, um … is Burn Notice still a thing?

Clearly, we didn’t really think that joke through, but the show we’re talking about is Suits, and the star we’re referring to is reigning Ms. Much Too Hot For Basic Cable, Meghan Markle.

As a human who exists on planet Earth, or perhaps a super-smart ape with an abiding interest in celebrity gossip (we don’t judge), you’ve no doubt heard by now that Meghan is dating Prince Harry.

In fact, you’ve probably caught wind of one of the many rumors that Meghan and Harry are engaged!

Obviously, there’s been no official word on that front, but the consensus amongst insiders is that a royal announcement should be happening any day now.

However, according to one clairvoyant, Meg shouldn’t waste any time picking out a wedding dress:

“My spirit guide is showing me that Prince Harry will propose to his girlfriend Meghan Markle November/December time, I am told that the engagement is already planned and she’ll say yes but they’ll break up before any wedding can take place,” psychid Lyndsay Edwards reported on her website today.

“My spirit guide tells me that Meghan is not the right partner for Prince Harry and that there is someone better suited who will come into his life not long after he splits up from Meghan Markle.”

Daaaay-um! Sorry, Meg. 

Hope you didn’t go pledging those Suits residuals to Unicef or anything nutty like that.

First rule of dating a prince: 

Don’t start acting spoiled until he makes you a royal.

You young folks might want to write that one down.

Anyway, in keeping with the proud tradition of psychics throwing shade at Meghan by suggesting that Princess Di would totally hate her, Edwards hints that Harry’s next girlfriend will be chosen for him by a solicitous ghost:

“I get the strongest sense that this next relationship for Prince Harry is somewhat planned on spirit’s part and I would question if she’s been chosen for Harry by a loved one in the spirit world who is going to ensure that Prince Harry and this girl cross paths,” she writes.

“I am shown when the two of them meet and it appears that Prince Harry isn’t looking for anyone in that way but is taken by surprise and caught off guard by his immediate attraction to this girl who I am told is really sweet and polite.”

Having apparently mistaken her own psychic prediction for a roast battle, Lindsay adds:

“She looks quite petite and very natural in her appearance – totally different from Meghan and more similar in appearance to girls he’s dated previously.”

Clearly, Lindsay’s predictions are ridiculous, but to be fair, she’s using her reputation as a psychic in the most effective way possible–by telling other people that they’re fat and they’re soon to be dumped by their significant others.

After all, anyone claiming to have psychic abilities is 100 percent full of it, but anyone bashing their social betters in truly petty fashion is just giving you their version of the truth.

Damn, we’re just full of lessons for the kids today.

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry Engagement: Coming Soon!

It's gonna happen, folks.

It's really, truly, finally, actually gonna happen.

Most likely.

Following weeks and weeks of endless rumors surrounding the status of their relationship, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are at last prepared to tell the world they're engaged.

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry Together

Numerous insiders have told Us Weekly that the handsome 33-year old quietly asked for his girlfriend's hand in marriage at some recent point in the past.

However, Harry supposedly wanted to "enjoy the [engagement] before word" leak out, which is why the pair has held off on telling anyone outside their parents.

Still, an official announcement will allegedly be coming soon.

This is approximately the 97th report we've found online this fall of Markle and Harry either being engaged or planning to be engaged.

For those wondering what the heck is taking so long, a source explains to this tabloid that it's actually a safety issue.

Markle is still filming Suits Season 7 and "it would be a security nightmare" if the public knew she was engaged to Harry while she was doing so.

“She’d be followed everywhere [in Toronto]," this friend says.

At the Invictus Games

We guess that makes some sense.

But isn't she followed everywhere now?

How much difference would it really make if there's a diamond ring on her finger?

Heck, speculation about the future of Markle and Harry has grown so strong that jewelers are even on record with the type of engagement ring she'll be receiving.

After shooting on Suits is complete, “she’ll relocate to London for sure," Us Weekly writes, adding:

There, she’ll be on hand to help map out what one insider refers to as “a detailed media rollout.”

This is how this type of thing typically goes for The Royal Family.

It's not as if they just appear on the cover of a magazine and scream to the world, "SHE SAID YES!"

Markle and Harry

Many likely remember how Prince William and Kate Middleton announced their 2010 betrothal in a number of interviews a month after William proposed in Kenya.

We should be using that as an example of what to expect down the line.

Harry and Markle “will most likely hold a small photo call at Kensington Palace, with just one photographer and journalist invited,” says this insider.

“On the same day, they’ll do a TV interview that will be syndicated around the world.”

Don't be fooled by how quiet the stars have been over the last couple months, either.

They know this is a big deal. They know what they want to do for the announcement and even for the wedding.

“These things are planned early in advance," Us Weekly concludes.

Meghan Markle & Prince Harry: We’re PRACTICALLY Engaged!

For about a year now, the world has been wondering when Prince Harry will pop the question to Meghan Markle.

Naturally, there were engagement rumors during Harry's previous longterm relationships with Chelsy Davy and Cressida Bonas, but they were never quite this persistent.

And while there's been no official announcement thus far, Harry and Meghan keep giving subtle indications that an engagement is on the way. 

Harry and Meghan Applaud

In fact, there are many who believe it's already happened, and the royal couple is simply keeping the news to themselves for the time being.

Back in August, Harry and Meghan traveled to Africa as part of a celebration for her 36th birthday.

Many thought that Meghan would return from the trip with some new bling to flaunt, but alas, she arrived back London ring-less.

Last week, Harry and Meghan headed to Toronto for the Invictus games, and again, Royal watchers were convinced Harry would seize the opportunity to propose.

After all Toronto is Meghan's adopted hometown, and several members of her family live there.

It seemed like a safe assumption that Harry would take advantage of the setting to ask Meghan to be his wife.

Prince Harry Kisses Meghan Markle

It doesn't seem like it played out that way, but those who know the couple best say Meghan is not concerned.

"Toronto was an amazing experience for Harry," a source close to Harry tells E! News.

"Everything to do with Invictus went according to plan and without hiccups. An uplifting and positive week spent doing what he loves most surrounded by good friends and the most important woman in his life." 

The insider adds that Harry spent a great deal of time with Meghan's mother while they were in Ontario:

"This week wasn't the first time that Harry met Doria," says the tipster.

"They actually met late last year so they're very close now. Doria sees Harry as one of the family and he sees her like family too. Harry is has become close with all of Meghan's closest friends ... these are people who have welcomed him with warm and open arms and he's really felt the love and protection."

Harry and Meghan Applaud

The source says that while Harry has yet to get down on one knee, the engagement is basically a done deal:

"While Meghan may not be wearing a ring or a formal engagement announced, it's fair to say they're as good as engaged now," the insider claims.

"They've spoken about their marriage plans openly with each other and friends and family around them are pretty much thinking about wedding attire already."

A different informant takes things a step further, telling Us Weekly:

"I think it's already happened but they're holding the news back until she has finished on Suits."

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry, Invictus Games

"I've never seen them happier. It's amazing," the source adds.

Of course, as many who have waited on a concrete sign of commitment from a reluctant partner can attest, "as good as engaged" isn't engaged.

If only there were someone who could offer Meghan advice on how to wait out a royal proposal with dignity. Hmmm...

Just joshin' with ya, Kate!

Kate Middleton Baby News: What Does Prince Harry Have to Say?

Perpetual rumor has turned into enthralling reality:



Royal Hunk of Meat

You've likely read that sentence so many times in the past that you started to doubt whether it would ever be legitimate.

But it wasn't a supermarket tabloid making the gigantic announcement on Monday morning... it was Kensington Palace!

“Their Royal Highnesses The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are very pleased to announce that The Duchess of Cambridge is expecting their third child,” the statement read, referring to Kate and Prince William and adding:

"The Queen and members of both families are delighted with the news."

Middleton once again is suffering from a condition that causes severe morning sickness, just as she did during her first two pregnancies.

As a result, she approved the reveal of this news early (Middleton is not even three months along) and was forced to cancel an appearance in England on Monday.

The Prince and The Duchess

Explains The Palace:

“As with her previous two pregnancies, The Duchess is suffering from Hyperemesis Gravidarum.

"Her Royal Highness will no longer carry out her planned engagement at the Hornsey Road Children’s Centre in London today.

"The Duchess is being cared for at Kensington Palace."

We can't say for certain when Middleton or William will speak on the pregnancy themselves, but Prince Harry has officially become the first family member to do so.

"Fantastic, great, very, very happy for them," Harry said in a video shared by The Daily Express' royal correspondent several hours ago.

When asked how Kate is doing, Prince Harry responded as follows:

"I haven't seen her for a while but I think she's okay."

Kate Middleton and Her Hot Prince

(Editor's Question: How long until we also learn that Pippa Middleton is pregnant? Or Meghan Markle is pregnant?)

A Clarence House spokesman, meanwhile, has said that Prince Charles and Camilla are "delighted" with the news.

Kate and William are already parents to a precious four-year old named George and an adorable two-year old named Charlotte.

Despite the young ages of these children, fans have been wondering for months and months just when Middleton would get pregnant again.

The impending birth will relegate Prince Harry down to sixth in line to the throne.

But he doesn't seem too bothered over that fact, does he?

Kate and William Laugh

At this point, we do not know when Kate is due or whether she'll have a boy or girl.

We don't know whether the beloved couple will even find out the gender ahead of time or not.

And we definitely do not know the names Middleton and William are considering.

But do you have any suggestions? What about Clarence for a boy and Roxanne for a girl?

Prince William and Prince Harry Delve Into Diana’s Death: What Do They Remember?

Let's forget the silly rumors for a second, shall we?

Ignore, at least for a few minutes, talk of Prince William being named King or Prince Harry getting engaged to Meghan Markle.

Let's focus instead of something far more real and serious: The death of Princess Diana.

Harry, William, Diana

The Royal Studs sat down for an interview with BBC One as a part of the upcoming documentary Diana, 7 Days, which commemorates the 20th anniversary of this icon's tragic death on August 31, 1997.

About a month ago, for a different TV special, her sons opened up about their final conversation with their beloved mother.

In Diana, 7 Days, they think back to learning about her death for the first time.

"One of the hardest things for a parent to have to do is to tell your children that your other parent has died. How you deal with that, I don’t know," Harry says in a released clip from the program, referring to his father, Prince Charles.

It was Charles who told his kids that Diana died in a car crash after he vehicle was chased down by members of the paparazzi.

"[Our dad] was there for us - he was the one out of two left, and he tried to do his best and to make sure that we were protected and looked after," Harry adds.

"But he was going through the same grieving process as well."

Prince Harry in a Uniform

At the time of Diana's death, William was just 15 years old and Harry was 12.

The kids were on vacation with their father and grandparents at the family's Balmoral Estate in Scotland when the accident took place.

"At the time, my grandmother [Queen Elizabeth] wanted to protect her two grandsons and my father as well," says William, adding:

"Our grandmother deliberately removed the newspapers and things like that so there was nothing in the house to read.

"We didn’t know what was going on. Back then there were no smart phones and things like that, so you couldn’t get your news.

"Thankfully, we had the privacy to mourn and to try to collect our thoughts and have that space away from everybody.

"We had no idea the reaction to her death would be quite so huge."

Prince William at a Mic

Diana was killed in a car accident as she drove through the Pont de l'Alma tunnel in Paris while being chased by the so-called "press."

It was later determined that her driver at the time was drunk.

"One of the hardest things to come to terms with is the fact that the people who chased her into the tunnel were the same people who were taking photographs of her while she was still dying in the backseat of her car," Harry says in the documentary teaser below.

"William and I know that. We've been told that numerous times by people that know that was the case."

He continues:

"She had quite a severe head injury, but she was very much alive on the backseat, and those people that caused the accident, instead of helping, were taking photographs of her dying on the back seat.

"And then those photographs made their way back to news desks in this country."

That's awful.

William, meanwhile, has speaks in the special about how herefused to let his mother's death "break" him.

"When you have something so traumatic as the death of you mother at 15 - which sadly many people have experienced, and no one wants to experience - it will either make or break you. And I wouldn't let it break me," William says.

"I wanted her to be proud of the person I would become...

"I didn't want her worried, or her legacy to be that William or Harry were completely and utterly devastated by it, and that all the hard work and all love and all the energy she put into us when we were younger would go to waste."

Meghan Markle Reality TV Show: Actually on the Way?!?

Meghan Markle has said almost nothing about her relationship with Prince Harry ever since she started to shag the Royal Hunk last spring.

She's given followers no reason to believe that she's in this relationship for fame, fortune or attention.

But a new report has critics wondering if their suspicions about the Suits actress have been accurate all along.

Meghan Markle Throwback Pic

Might she really be using Harry to raise her public profile?

We can't help but ask this question after a representative for Channel 4 in Great Britain spoke to Marie Claire and said plans are underway to produce and air Meet the Markles.

The proposed reality show will be an hour in length and will document Markle's life, from early childhood to her breakout days as an actress to her ongoing charity efforts.

The program “also promises to delve into how Prince Harry and Meghan met, as well as use genealogical research to trace her ancestry," writes the publication.

Markle and Harry are not even engaged yet, of course.

(Although there have been incessant rumors for months that Harry could pop the question at any moment.)

So the idea of a reality show based around their lives seems a tad bit mature.

Meghan Markle in 2015

Oh, also also totally antithetical to everything this couple appears to stand for.

They are very private and respect the traditions of The Royal Family very much.

As much as we'd love to see Queen Elizabeth take on the role of a Kris Jenner-type from Keeping Up with the Kardashians, we somehow doubt her Highness would be up for it.

For this reason, Marie Claire notes that the rumored reality show might not feature Meghan or Harry at all.

It might instead consist of friends or family members trying to take advantage of Markle's sudden rise in popularity.

Just recently, you may recall, Meghan’s estranged half-sister, Samantha Grant, claimed to be writing a "tell all" about what it was like growing up with the actress.

The Daily Mail Online reports that Grant even claims Meghan’s philanthropic endeavors are "cheap' and that Markle lacks "basic human consideration."

Ouch. Harsh.

A Royal Wedding?

It's worth noting, however, that Markle and Grant are 17 years apart in age.

They were not raised at the same time in the same house. They barely even know each other.

One insider even says Markle and Grant have seen each other a grand total of one time in 23 years.

So we don't know if Grant is behind the idea of Meet the Markles. We have no idea if it will even receive a green light and hit the air at any point.

As much as we appreciate the alliterative title, however, we caution readers not to believe everything you see on the show as it pertains to Meghan.

If you want to see this beautiful star on the small screen, just go watch Suits online instead.

Prince Charles: Ordering Prince Harry to Dump Meghan Markle?!

Earlier today, we reported that Meghan Markle may be planning to quit acting in order to move to London and focus on her relationship with Prince Harry.

It's not easy to leave behind the glamorous life of a regular on a basic cable legal drama beloved by retirees and the unemployable alike, but Harry and Meghan seem to be the real thing, and marrying into royalty is a pretty sweet deal in its own right.

Meghan Markle Red Carpet Image

Some folks are still skeptical, given Harry's history of serial monogamy, but he and Meghan appear to be getting serious. 

After all, they've only been together a few months, but they've already reached the "BS rumors pregnancy rumors" stage, with several outlets reporting last week that Markle is expecting.

But as many of Harry's forebears have learned the hard way, royal romances are tricky matters that require consent from far more than just the two principle parties involved.

According to Radar Online, one key member of the royal family is refusing to give Harry and Meghan the okay to take the next step in their relationship.

Prince Charles Photo

Prince Charles may not seem much of an authority on marriage (His first is synonymous with "unhealthy relationship."), but apparently, he and his second wife, Camilla Parker-Bowles, see potential for disaster in the Harkle reunion that the rest of us are missing.

According to Radar the trouble began when Harry and Meghan traveled to Jamaica together for his friend's wedding.

It was their most public social occasion to date, and apparently, photos of his sun enjoying Meghan's company rubbed Charles the wrong way.

“This is the first time that she and Harry have socialized so openly as a couple and it’s a significant step in the relationship,” a royal source tells the site.

Prince Harry and Prince Charles

Charles reportedly shared his misgivings with Harry, and predictably, a royal row ensued:

“Harry was telling his father, Charles, to stay out of his life,” says the insider.

So why does Charles find Meghan so objectionable?

Well, according to the insider, Camilla pointed out to Charles what she sees as similarities between Meghan and infamous royal from the past:

“Camilla likens Meghan to Fergie, who triggered public scandals with her running around and was photographed topless having her toes sucked by a boyfriend while still married to Charles’ brother Andrew."

Camilla Parker Bowles Image

The basis of the comparison seems to be nothing more than the fact that Markle is divorced and Fergie became divorced from Andrew.

Someone sould fill Charles in on the fact that there are literally millions of divorced people in the world.

In fact, he doesn't have to look very far to find one.

Any room with a mirror will do the trick.

Meghan Markle: Pregnant by Prince Harry?!?

Congratulations are in order for Meghan Markle.

The actress is officially part of the Royal Family!

Because she and Prince Harry really are engaged and a wedding is being planned and all of Great Britain is about to shut down for the next several months?


Meghan Markle Plays Rachel

Because Markle is finally the subject of wild pregnancy speculation.

And let's just say Kate Middleton can relate, many, many, many, MANY times over.

According to the latest OK! Weekly cover story, Markle may be expecting her first child with Harry.

(It would also be the rising star's first child overall.)

As you can see below, the front page of this issue screams “Meghan Tells Princess Kate: I’m Having Harry’s Baby!”

It claims that Markle made this “secret confession” during a “girls’ night out" to Middleton, which may be the hardest part of this entire story to believe.

Meghan Markle Pregnant Claim

Could Harry have knocked up his girlfriend?

Sure. They're probably having sex and mistakes happen.

But do Markle and Middleton enjoy drunken nights out alone? LOL, no!

According to anonymous source - who are totally real and not remotely made up by editors - Meghan and Markle managed to sneak into a London pub without anyone identifying them.

And, once they were inside, the alcohol and the conversation flowed freely.

“By the end of the evening, which the insider says stretched till 1 a.m., Meghan had confessed to Kate that she’s so in love with Prince Harry, 32, she’d have his baby tomorrow if she could!” writes the tabloid.

This source is then quoted as saying the following:

“Meghan told Kate that, as far as she’s concerned, they should start trying [to conceive] as soon as they’ve announced their engagement.

"She’s got baby fever!”

So, just to emphasize, OK! isn't actually reporting that Markle is pregnant.

It's claiming (falsely, we're sure) that she simply told Kate Middleton that she wants to get pregnant someday soon. That's a pretty big difference.

Meghan Markle in Blue

Markle should probably get used to these sorts of rumors.

As the likely future wife of Prince Harry, she'll be subjected to scrutiny that she'll probably never fully adjust to.

If she thinks Suits fans are passionate, wait until she meets Royal Family followers!

For now, Markle has managed to avoid any real scandal.

She hasn't really said anything in public, either, ever since her romance with Harry went viral late last year.

But those tabloids and newspapers continue to wonder and write anyway, even alleging that Markle and Middleton are engaged in some kind of feud.

And that pretty much explains what Markle is in for:

She's going out for drinks and sharing major secrets with Middleton... or she's engaged in a rivalry with the future Queen. There's really no way for Markle to win.

The best thing she can do is lay low, use protection when having sex until she really is prepared to conceive and simply enjoy her time with the man she loves.

Prince Harry & Meghan Markle: Engaged?!

It's only been about three months since we first learned that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are dating, but it seems the couple is wasting no time in getting serious.

In fact, for weeks now, we've been hearing rumors that Harry and Meghan are engaged.

Normally, the idea of any royal moving so quickly in a new relationship would be absurd, but this seems to be a special case...

Meghan Markle Red Carpet Image

Radar Online is reporting today that Meghan was spotted wearing an engagement ring while out and about in London.

According to the site, the ring was nothing fancy, just a simple gold band.

Interestingly, however, it was engraved with a letter "H."

So what does it all mean?

Probably nothing - but possibly everything.

Meghan Markle Sparkles

In most cases, a royal engagement ring is an extravagant, eye-catching piece, but Harry and Meghan have been so non-traditional up to this point that we wouldn't be surprised if they went with something simple and borderline hokey.

Perhaps Meghan wears the ring as a reminder that she and Harry are committed to one another, but she keeps it simple so as to avoid too much attention from the press.

Unfortunately for MegMar, she's in British tabloid territory now, and nothing she does will go unnoticed for the rest of her days.

Gone are the days of basic cable obscurity when only the elderly and unemployed knew her name.

Now, Meg has been pegged as a future royal, which means her every move is subject to scrutiny.

Meghan Markle Pic

Amazingly, she and Harry still haven't made their official debut as a couple.

That's scheduled to happen at Pippa Middleton's wedding on May 20.

Yes, that means that even if they're not engaged now, there's still a very good chance that these two will be engaged before they officially come out as a couple.

Looks like Meghan won't be waiting around like Kate did for so many years.

Of course, if she thinks the British press' obsession with her personal life is bad now, just wait until Harry officially puts a ring on it.

She may wind up longing for the simpler days when she was just a regular on Suits.

Usually that's a longing reserved for people who are currently working for tips and memorizing lunch specials.

Prince Harry & Pippa Middleton: "Secretly Dating!" Totes Loved Up!

First of all, nice photoshop job.

Pippa Middleton and Prince Harry: Secretly Dating!

This week's cover of OK! Magazine alleges that Pippa Middleton and Prince Harry have finally embarked on a "secret romance," since both parties are currently single and ready to mingle.

“It’s very easy for her to sneak in and out of the palace," a source claims.  "Harry just sends one of his bodyguards to pick her up, and then she ducks down in the backseat so the paparazzi don’t spot her.”

Ah, just like when Diana was dating Dr. Hasnat Khan.  He'd ride in the boot of someone's car for a Kensington Palace rendezvous.

After seeing Pippa in her skin-grazing Alexander McQueen bridesmaid gown, everyone who watched the royal wedding in 2011 wanted her and Harry to end up together.

The source told the publication that at the wedding reception, the Duchess of Cambridge "went to check her makeup and found them [Pippa and Harry] snogging in the bathroom!”

What a lark!  Especially since Pippa was dating cricket player Alex Loudon at the time and brought him to the wedding.

"They’re trying to play it coy,” the source added, pointing out that Pipps and Hazza have held a candle for one another since the wedding.

“But there’s no doubt that this is developing into something serious. They’re truly sweet together and, in fact, seem very much in love.”

Pippa broke up with her boyfriend, Nico Jackson in October after three years together.  She's been seen lately with ex-boyfriend, James Matthews, the brother of Made In Chelsea's Spencer Matthews.

Matthews hosted the Middletons (sans Catherine) at his family's St. Bart's hotel, Eden Rock in August, and on December 6th was photographed with Pippa and her mom, Carole outside a memorial Christmas carol concert.

"I know they’ve always been very close friends – well, they’ve had a close friendship for awhile," Spencer told me back about James and Pippa back in December 2012.

"And it seems that there might be something more there."

Soz, Harry.

Prince Harry Brings Attention to Poaching During Visit to Africa

In the world of British royals, it’s Prince Harry who has the reputation for hard partying, but at the end of the day, this guy knows what’s important, and he uses his status to call attention to injustices and acts of evil. On his fourth day of his visit to Africa, Prince Harry visited Kruger National Park in South Africa. He was distraught to see rhinoceroses and elephants killed, their tusks missing, and chose to bring attention to the widespread problem of poaching in a sensitive, heartbreaking Instagram post:


Prince Harry has released this personal photo taken during his summer visit to southern Africa. Here Prince Harry shares his story behind the photograph… “After a very long day in Kruger National Park, with five rhinos sent to new homes and three elephants freed from their collars – like this sedated female – I decided to take a moment. I know how lucky I am to have these experiences, but hearing stories from people on the ground about how bad the situation really is, upset and frustrated me. How can it be that 30,000 elephants were slaughtered last year alone? None of them had names, so do we not care? And for what? Their tusks? Seeing huge carcasses of rhinos and elephants scattered across Africa, with their horns and tusks missing is a pointless waste of beauty.” Photograph © Prince Harry

A photo posted by Kensington Palace (@kensingtonroyal) on Dec 2, 2015 at 2:28am PST

This is far from the first time Harry has posted about poaching on the Kensington Royal Instagram account. His visit to South Africa has been filled with caring for animals who are fighting for their lives after having their tusks stolen and sustaining serious wounds. Harry has also been involved in “de-tusking” certain animals so that they will be undesirable to poachers who hunt them for their ivory.

Earlier this year, Prince Harry saw the wasted carcass of a rhino left to die on the savannah after it had been killed for its tusks, and was nearly speechless at the sight. But it did move him to action, as he proclaimed, “But these people will be caught.”

And not only is Prince Harry working to save animals, but he’s working to catch the poachers themselves. The Daily Mail reports that the prince was upset when seeing the damage poachers had caused, and that he said, “There’s good evidence there though, we have a water bottle and cartridges so we’re confident we will catch them.”

Harry was also shown cigarette butts the poachers had left on the ground, which are likely to carry DNA. DNA sampling subsequently took place. He also showed his knowledge of the subject, saying, “You have to try to get to the carcass a quickly as possible to suck up all the evidence before the wilds of Africa [...]

Princess Charlotte Wears A Gown You’ve Probably Seen Before For Her Royal Christening!

Prince George is gonna be mad his little sister keeps taking things from his closet!

Princess Charlotte's Christening took place on Sunday afternoon at St. Mary Magdalene Church in Norfolk, and her royal family members couldn't have looked cuter to celebrate her big day.

Kate Middleton wore all white Alexander McQueen in honor of her daughter's step into the spotlight, and her fascinator is simply gorgeous!

Prince William kept things traditional in a navy suit, but it's two-month-old Charlotte's big brother George who takes the cake in his adorable red-and-white frilled shorts and short sleeves number.

[ Related: What We Know About Princess Charlotte's Christening So Far ]

So what exactly did Charlotte wear for her Christening?

A replica of the same royal gown that has been in her family since 1841!

George himself wore the hand-stitched gown for his Christening in 2013 (below) while daddy William got the original for his in 1982!

So who else was in attendance to honor Charlotte?? Her five godparents, of course!

Kate and William selected five of their closest friends and family members to participate in the ceremony, including; William's cousin the Honourable Laura Fellowes, and longtime friends Thomas van Straubenzee and James Meade, as well as Kate's cousin Adam Middleton and her friend Sophie Carter.

We wonder what Pippa and Harry are going to think about this, especially since William's little brother has now missed both his niece and nephew's Christenings.

[ Photo: See The First Portrait of Princess Charlotte & Prince George! ]

The rest of the attendees included Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip, Prince Charles and Camilla, Kate's parents Michael and Carole Middleton, her brother James Middleton and Pippa!

Sounds like a pretty great day to us!

Prince Harry’s TOTALLY Ready For Kids! Even His Polo Pal Thinks So!

We all know Prince Harry has babies on the brain!

And we're not really surprised, since he gets to play uncle to Prince William and Kate Middleton's two beautiful babes.

Can you blame him?! Have you SEEN pictures of Prince George and Princess Charlotte?!

Harry has opened up recently about feeling ready for kids, but now his friends are behind him 100%!

The redhead's polo pal Nacho Figueras thinks he'll be a fantastic father, saying:

"I think he will be a great dad, he cares a lot about children, most of his charities are towards children."

And since he clearly gets along really well with the little munchkins, we're convinced that he won't have any trouble transitioning into having babies of his own!

Nacho continued to echo this sentiment, reiterating how important children are to the prince:

"He loves them and he cares about them, so I'm sure he's going to be a great dad."

Whenever the gentle ginger decides to settle down and raise a few little ones, we're sure he'll do an awesome job!
