The royal pair stepped out of a train at Runcorn station in Runcord, England to then head to the Queen’s awaiting Bentley. It looks like Duchess Meghan was momentarily confused if royal protocol suggests she should enter the car first, or allow the Queen to enter first! Luckily, the Queen and the Duchess got everything squared away. “What is your preference?” Duchess Meghan could be heard asking the Queen in the video, to which the Queen responded, “You go first.” The Duchess could then be heard saying, “Oh okay.” You can watch the video over at The Telegraph......»»

Meghan Markle"s Father Publicly Accuses The Royal Family Of Cutting Him Off From His Daughter

Thomas Markle just sat down — again — for another very public media interview in which he asserts Meghan Markle and the royal family have cut him off from ALL communications.

The Duchess of Sussex's biological father asserts in a damning new interview with The Daily Mail that he won't stop pursuing Meghan even if the royal fam has completely cut him off from his daughter. Related: Meghan Totally Approves Of Nick Jonas & Priyanka Chopra's Engagement! Speaking to the publication, Markle said about being cut off (below): "I'm really hurt that she's cut me off completely. I used to have a phone number and text number for her personal aides at the Palace, but after I said a few critical words about the Royal Family changing Meghan, they cut me off." Hmmm.. And Thomas reveals he has thought about mailing Meghan things, too, though it's unlikely they'd get to her: "I thought about sending it by Priority Mail Express, but the Palace would probably just soak it in water for three days to make sure it doesn't explode." Uhhh... OK! Related: Meghan's Sister Defends "Cashing In" On The Duchess' Fame That's not the weirdest part, though -- Thomas clearly has a bone to pick about getting perhaps locked out of seeing his grand child at some point next year or soon thereafter (below): "[It would be] easier for Meghan if I died. Everyone would be filled with sympathy for her. But I hope we reconcile. I'd hate to die without speaking to Meghan again. What's sad is that some time in the next year Meghan and Harry will have a baby and I'll be a grandfather. And if we're not speaking, I won't see my grandchild. How tragic is that—to deprive a child of its grandfather because I said a few things critical of the Royal Family?" Wow! And later, he turned the whole thing into a pity party, criticizing Meghan for not properly thanking him for the way he raised her (below): "They want me to be silent, they want me to just go away. But I won't be silenced. I refuse to stay quiet. What riles me is Meghan's sense of superiority. She'd be nothing without me. I made her the Duchess she is today. Everything that Meghan is, I made her. And did I get any recognition for it? Any thanks? She doesn't even speak to me now. How cold is that?" Yikes... Not good. Related: The ULTIMATE Royal Quiz! And also not done! How about invoking Princess Diana's name in this whole mess for Thomas, too (below): "[The Royal Family] have Meghan treating her father in a way that Harry's mother, Princess Diana, would have loathed. That's not what Diana stood for. Princess Diana is credited with changing the Royal Family, but she wasn't perfect. She was still very much one of them. I think Meghan's the one who'll bring them into the 21st Century, if they'll let her." Wow... Controversial, to say the least!!!! What do U think, Perezcious readers?! Let us know your opinions in the comments (below)... [Image via WENN.].....»»

Meghan Markle To Take Six Months Of Duchess Lessons — & She"s Being Taught By The Queen"s TOP Aide!

As we previously reported, there are all sorts of rules and protocols the Suits alum must follow now that she's the Duchess of Sussex. Thankfully, the royal family doesn't expect the American actress to learn how to be royal bride overnight. However, she will have some serious homework, as she's reportedly starting six months worth of Duchess lessons. Related: Victoria Beckham Gives Her Take On Meghan's Dress According to reports, Queen Elizabeth II has tapped one of her senior aides to coach Prince Harry's wife on the "Dos and Don'ts" of royal life. It's said that 49-year-old Samantha Cohen is relocating from Buckingham Palace to Meghan and Harry's home at Kensington Palace, so that she can work VERY closely with the Windsor family's latest addition. A source told The Times: "It will be six months of listening. She is seeking out advice from a range of people. She is going to proceed with humility. It is not going to be quiet, though. It is going to be a very busy office. She has worked every day of her life. She is used to a demanding schedule." And it sounds like Samantha is the perfect person for the job. Not only does Cohen have almost two decades of experience within the Queen's household, but she viciously protects the Windsors and is lovingly known as, "Samantha the Panther." Often described as "deeply committed-to serving the Monarchy," Samantha was among the first women to take control of the royal family's media office -- this department had originally been run by mostly men for a significant length of time. After a stint in PR, Samantha became the royal deputy press secretary in 2003 and worked her way up to the top position four years later. In 2016, Cohen was made a Commander of the Royal Victorian Order in honor of her loyal service. Per reports, Samantha has already begun her work with Meghan, having advised her ahead of Prince Charles' 70th birthday/garden party at Buckingham Palace. Well, this explains why Markle is already donning pantyhose!! Regardless, as Meghan isn't a traditional royal bride, we're excited to see how she tackles her newly minted role. Good luck, girl!!

Meghan Markle Failing At Being A Royal Snob

Titles are titles, they don’t necessarily by default fully define the person that is attached to them. Whether Meghan Markle has finally upgraded to the Empress of Earth or lives out the remainder of her life as the Duchess of Sussex, she’s still, by DNA, an LA chick. And LA women are a different breed […] The post Meghan Markle Failing At Being A Royal Snob appeared first on WWTDD - What Would Tyler Durden Do?. Titles are titles, they don’t necessarily by default fully define the person that is attached to them. Whether Meghan Markle has finally upgraded to the Empress of Earth or lives out the remainder of her life as the Duchess of Sussex, she’s still, by DNA, an LA chick. And LA women are a different breed altogether. They’re not designed to enjoy morning crumpets, afternoon tea, and all of the other puzzling activities that the Brits partake in. The market cap for royalty in Los Angeles ends at the red carpet. The hot one from Suits seemed to forget that she’s now so important that she shouldn’t be shutting her own car door. Meghan Markle may be the Duchess of Sussex, but she’s hardly a typical princess. While arriving at the Royal Academy of Art in London to view the art exhibit “Oceania” on Tuesday in her first-ever solo outing, Meghan broke protocol in a subtle way. After shaking hands with one of her hosts for the evening, Meghan casually shut the car door and headed inside. “First time I’ve seen an on-duty princess shut her own car door…” wrote one Twitter user. The Sun‘s royal correspondent Emily Andrews added, “A princess who still takes the time to shut her car door. Well done Meghan!” One can only imagine the amount of MeToo skeletons that Meghan is keeping in her closet to rise from struggling actress to an authentic princess. If Rose McGowan dined on Harvey Weinstein oysters with a side of trouser sourced truffle butter just for a role in Grindhouse, imagine what Markle has done to wear a crown. Meghan, 37, proved she doesn’t mind helping out on her wedding day, when she pulled a romantic gesture as she and Prince Harry hopped in a Jaguar convertible to head to their evening reception. After Harry, 33, opened the door and helped his bride into the passenger seat, Meghan reached over to make sure his door was unlocked. So Markle reenacts a scene from A Bronx Tale in real life and suddenly the world should stop to watch? Her prestigious position as Prince Harry’s penis holster is just a title. She wasn’t raised with privilege, she snatched it in a plot twist like her life was written and directed by M. Night Shyamalan. Her shutting her own car door just reminds us of a simpler time, when Meghan was more likely to sit on a casting couch than a royal throne.

The press secretary provided an update on Friday (May 4). PHOTOS: Check out the latest pics of Meghan Markle “We are now just over two weeks away from the wedding of His Royal Highness Prince Henry of Wales and Ms. Meghan Markle. As they have travelled around the UK in the months since their engagement last November, Prince Harry and Ms. Markle have been incredibly grateful for the support they have received from members of the public,” the update reads. “The crowds that have turned out in Nottingham, Cardiff, Brixton, Edinburgh, Birmingham, Belfast, Bath and elsewhere have given Ms. Markle a welcome to the United Kingdom marked by warmth, enthusiasm, and a real sense of fun.” Read the full outline inside… We are now just over two weeks away from the wedding of His Royal Highness Prince Henry of Wales and Ms. Meghan Markle. As they have travelled around the UK in the months since their engagement last November, Prince Harry and Ms. Markle have been incredibly grateful for the support they have received from members of the public. The crowds that have turned out in Nottingham, Cardiff, Brixton, Edinburgh, Birmingham, Belfast, Bath and elsewhere have given Ms. Markle a welcome to the United Kingdom marked by warmth, enthusiasm, and a real sense of fun. We said from the outset that Prince Harry and Ms. Markle were keen to make sure that members of the public would have the opportunity to feel part of the celebrations on their wedding day. This is their way of expressing their gratitude for the messages of support they have received from around the UK, the Commonwealth, Ms. Markle’s home country of the United States, and right around the world. In today’s briefing I want to share more details of what people can expect to see in the day’s leading up to the wedding, and on the day itself, and explain what the public can expect in Windsor. The first thing I would like to share is that Prince Harry and Ms. Markle are very much looking forward to welcoming Ms. Markle’s parents to Windsor for the wedding. Mr. Thomas Markle and Ms. Doria Ragland will be arriving in the UK in the week of the wedding, allowing time for Prince Harry’s family, including The Queen, The Duke of Edinburgh, The Prince of Wales, The Duchess of Cornwall, and The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, to spend time with them before the big day. Both of the bride’s parents will have important roles in the wedding. On the morning of the wedding, Ms. Ragland will travel with Ms. Markle by car to Windsor Castle. Mr. Markle will walk his daughter down the aisle of St George’s Chapel. Ms. Markle is delighted to have her parents by her side on this important and happy occasion. In addition to having the support of The Queen, his father The Prince of Wales, and his brother Prince William as Best Man, Prince Harry is also keen to involve his mother’s family in his wedding. All three siblings of Diana, Princess of Wales will be in attendance and Lady Jane Fellowes will give the reading. Prince Harry and Ms. Markle both feel honoured that Lady Jane will be representing her family and helping to celebrate the memory of the late Princess on the wedding day. As we said back in November, this wedding will be guided by tradition, allowing everyone to celebrate what makes Royal Weddings so special, but also one which reflects the personalities of Prince Harry and Ms. Markle. We have been announcing details over the last couple of months and in the final week ahead of the wedding you can expect to hear more about the arrangements, including: The Instrument of Consent; Details of the Bridesmaids and Page Boys; The work of florist Philippa Craddock and the Crown Estate gardeners who have been growing and preparing the flowers that will fill the church; An update from Claire Ptak, the baker who will make the wedding cake, and the chefs who have been working in the Palace kitchens to make the final preparations and; We will publish the full Order of Service on the website on Saturday morning so members of the public can follow the service at home. I will now take you through the high level outline of what you can expect to see from the evening of Friday 18th May. The key moment for the day before will be the arrival of the bride at her accommodation. We expect this to happen early evening. On the day itself we expect Windsor to be very busy. The council has worked with partners including Thames Valley Police to plan what will be a fantastic day of celebrations. As the Royal Borough of Windsor has said, work is well underway to ensure the occasion is a memorable and joyous one for all involved and they are working closely with a wide range of partners. Rail operators will be putting on extra trains and there will be park and walk and park and float services to help people get into town. Visitors are encouraged to plan ahead and book all travel arrangements early so they can make the most of their trip. I would very much appreciate the media’s assistance in spreading the message that visitors to Windsor will have a chance to be part of a very special day, but those who will be heading to the town really do need to plan their journeys carefully. The Royal Borough has confirmed that preparations include: A 6,000 space pre-booked car parking area at the Review Ground, just off the Long Walk; Food stalls and facilities, including big screens showing live footage of the wedding and Procession, on the Long Walk and in Alexandra Gardens; Viewing areas along the whole Procession Route (Castle Hill, High Street, Sheet Street, Kings Road, Albert Road and the Long Walk); A team of 140 Royal Borough Ambassadors have volunteered to help steward the event and assist visitors throughout the day; The town centre will be decorated with bunting and ceremonial banners along parts of the Procession Route and; Live entertainment from local groups throughout the town centre. In order to make sure everyone can get through expected traffic, the members of the public who have been invited to be inside the grounds of Windsor Castle for the wedding will be arriving from around 0900hrs. As a reminder, 1,200 people have been nominated by Lord Lieutenants from across the country for their work supporting their communities. Many of these people are sharing their stories with their local media and supporters – the couple are very pleased that their wedding has provided a platform to celebrate the inspiring work of community and youth leaders from around the UK. The first thing these people gathered will see on the morning of the wedding will be the arrival of guests between 0930hrs and 1100hrs. Guests will be arriving at the Round Tower by coach and will be seen walking to the South Door of St George’s Chapel. Members of The Royal Family will begin to arrive from 1120hrs, and enter St George’s Chapel via the Galilee Porch. Some will be on foot, and others will arrive by car. Prince Harry and his brother The Duke of Cambridge will arrive at St George’s Chapel most likely by foot and will enter via the West Steps. This will allow Their Royal Highnesses to acknowledge all of the people gathered in the Castle precincts, including the 200 charity representatives gathered in the Horseshoe Cloister at the bottom of the steps. Also around the time Royal Family arrivals begin, a pooled media facility will cover Ms. Markle and Ms. Ragland’s departure from the bride’s overnight location. We expect the journey into the Castle to take them along part of the Long Walk, allowing members of the public gathered there to see the car as it passes. There will also be a brief stop at the Castle where Ms. Ragland will head onto the Chapel and Ms. Markle will be joined by some of the Bridesmaids and Page Boys before she continues her journey to the church, where she will enter via the West Steps. The Service will take around an hour, and we look forward to announcing more details of this in the weeks ahead. After the Service has concluded, the newly married couple will process out of the church and acknowledge the 200 representatives of Prince Harry’s charities gathered in the Cloister. The couple are delighted that these people who will be such an important part of their official work in the years to come will be the first people they see after their wedding. As the couple step into their Carriage, close family members will gather on the West Steps to wave them off on their Procession. As a reminder, we expect the Carriage Procession to take just under 25 minutes. Prince Harry and Ms. Markle are very much looking forward to this part of the day. It will be their chance to express their gratitude for the goodwill and warm wishes they have received from all quarters in the months since their engagement. Members of the congregation will file out of the church onto the grass to see the start of the Procession before walking to the reception at St George’s Hall. All guests will be attending the reception. The public elements of the event will be over at this stage. The final thing you can expect to see is the Bride and Groom departing Windsor Castle for the evening reception at Frogmore House. In the days that follow, we will facilitate interviews with some of those who have been involved in the wedding, as happened in 2011, for example with the hairdresser and dressmaker. The formal photographs, which will be taken by Alexi Lubomirski, will be released during the week......»»

Meghan Markle Has Met The Queen! Is A Royal Wedding On The Horizon?

While it took Kate Middleton five years to be introduced to the monarch, Harry has been keen on getting his new girlfriend facetime in with his beloved grandma -- and opportunity struck earlier this month! Related: Tabloid Ordered To Pay Kate $120K In Topless Photo Lawsuit! The introduction came on September 3, following Harry and Meghan's three-week vacation in Botswana and Zambia -- a "trip of a lifetime," as one source put it -- when the 33-year-old prince whisked the actress away to the family's estate in Scotland. With Harry's father Prince Charles and stepmother Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall staying at their 53,000-acre estate, the prince "decided to take Meghan to visit as he hadn't been up yet all summer," the source explained to Us Weekly. But, according to the insider, Harry had an ulterior motive for bringing the Suits star to Birkhall for the two-day trip: "He wanted to introduce Meghan to the queen." Sneaky prince! Photo: Prince William Drops George Off For First Day Of School Solo A day after arriving on September 2, the duo traveled seven miles away to Balmoral Castle, the queen's summer residence, for the big courtesy -- which Meghan passed with flying colors. The source said of the introduction: "It went well. It'll no doubt be the first of many encounters." The next encounter could involve the planning of a royal wedding. Harry allegedly intended to propose during the African getaway -- creating a ring using diamonds for a brooch that formerly belonged to his mother Princess Diana, no less -- and select palace aides have already started prepping for an engagement announcement. The source dished: "These things are planned well in advance; it's not easy to roll out that kind of news. Everyone knows how happy Harry is and is excited for the day it's announced." But for now, the two are celebrating a successful visit with the most powerful family member: "The entire weekend was a success. [Harry] was able to introduce someone he loves to someone he cares for deeply." The source added that despite Meghan's common background (she was raised by a clinical therapist and a lighting director), the actress "fits perfectly into the family" and "gets on fabulously with Charles, as do she and Camilla." Now that it's confirmed the LA native can hang with the Windsors, Harry has no reason not to pull the trigger. The source continued: "Meghan and Harry are in such a good place — Africa took their relationship to a whole other level. They're just crazy about each other." Sounds like the family will suit up for another royal wedding before we know it! [Image via Ivan Nikolov/Euan Cherry/WENN.].....»»

Prince Harry Is Essentially Giving Meghan Markle Princess Lessons À La The Princess Diaries!

Looks like Meghan Markle needs to pop in a copy of The Princess Diaries! Between meetings with Queen Elizabeth II and official public outings as a couple, it seems Prince Harry and the Suits actress are destined for an engagement. However, the free spirited actress is expected to deal with quite the "minefield" once she officially [...] Looks like Meghan Markle needs to pop in a copy of The Princess Diaries! Between meetings with Queen Elizabeth II and official public outings as a couple, it seems Prince Harry and the Suits actress are destined for an engagement. However, the free spirited actress is expected to deal with quite the "minefield" once she officially transitions into becoming a royal. Related: Meghan's Half Sis IS Writing A Memoir In order to make the transition from commoner to princess a smooth one for Miz Markle, it's said the royals are schooling her in the ways of British aristocracy. Apparently, the royal family playful refers to themselves as the "Firm," since there is no special school for learning how to be a member of the privileged brood. Where's Julie Andrews -- excuse us, Queen Clarisse Renaldi -- when you need her?? Thankfully, the ginger prince has been dedicated to educating his lady about his lifestyle. Per British writer Katie Nicholl, the 33-year-old has been a mentor of sorts for Meghan. She told The Post: "He knows how daunting this will be for Meghan and he's keen for her to be relaxed in the company of senior royals." Smart, smart. Reportedly, before the teatime visit at Buckingham Palace, Harry likely informed Markle of all the protocols that she should follow. Nicholl continued: "Harry will have made sure Meghan knew how to address the queen and how to behave in her presence. He calls her ‘Granny,' but after Meghan had curtsied and called her ‘Your Majesty,' she would have reverted to ‘ma'am.' It seems strange to mere mortals, but it is how [Princess] Kate addresses her." How formal!! Although the Suits star is encouraged to be herself, she is expected to act with the manners and grace of a royal. Ingrid Seward, editor-in-chief of Majesty Magazine, added: "She will always have to remember, in public at least, that she is royalty and certain behaviors are expected... It's going to be difficult for her because she is an independent career woman who [won't] really like being told what to do." You listenin', Meghan?? The American divorcée will also be required to learn the British rules for functioning in society. Seward relayed: "American manners are different than British manners. [She] can't walk down the street eating or chewing gum... We hold our cutlery differently. It's a whole different culture." This is quite the undertaking. Regardless, it's not like the 36-year-old hasn't had experience dealing with the public. As an actress and an activist, Meghan has had extensive media training and can speak eloquently in public. Charles Rae, former royal correspondent for Britain's Sun, informed The Post that Markle has been "studying hard" to learn everything. QUIZ: Are You A Royal Family Expert?? He explained: "She has practically been living at Kensington Palace whenever she is in London and will have seen the routine that goes on with the butlers and servants." The industry vet will also learn from the royal protection squad on how to interact with unruly fans. Rae noted: "She will learn how to cope if someone [in a crowd] comes on too strong. Ever since John Lennon was shot, the royals have been told never to rebuff anyone. Members of the family, including the queen, have had assassination attempts against them in the past, and no chances will be taken with Meghan." Intense stuff. Charles also mentioned that the TV starlet's acting career will be "a thing of the past." If you're still not convinced that Harry and Meghan are engagement bound, reports suggest that the brunette stunner's presence at either the upcoming memorial service for Remembrance Sunday or the Sandringham Christmas celebrations means the couple is serious AF. SoOoO, be sure to keep your ears to the ground, Perezcious readers!! [Image via WENN.].....»»

Meghan Markle"s Acting Career Has Been TOTALLY BURIED On The Royal Family"s Website!

Rewriting history?? Meghan Markle, AKA the newly minted Duchess of Sussex, has been fully embraced by the royal family. However, it appears that her past in Tinseltown is one the Windsor family would like to forget! Related: More Than 22 Million Americans Watched The Royal Wedding Just one day after her internationally celebrated wedding to Prince Harry, Meghan [...] Rewriting history?? Meghan Markle, AKA the newly minted Duchess of Sussex, has been fully embraced by the royal family. However, it appears that her past in Tinseltown is one the Windsor family would like to forget! Related: More Than 22 Million Americans Watched The Royal Wedding Just one day after her internationally celebrated wedding to Prince Harry, Meghan found herself with a page on the royal family's official website. While her "About" page touted Miz Markle's extensive charity work and feminist viewpoint, it shockingly left out her tenure in Hollywood. Instead, the website developers buried her Suits gig and her lifestyle website, The Tig, in the smaller biography section. Her bio reads as follows: "After university Her Royal Highness worked as an actress, appearing in film and television. She most notably played the role of Rachel Zane on the series Suits for seven seasons, completing over 100 episodes. Whilst working on Suits, The Duchess moved to Toronto, Canada where the show was filmed; she feels very connected to Canada, as it became a second home to her... Alongside her successful career as an actress, Her Royal Highness also wrote and edited a lifestyle website called The Tig which she used as a platform to discuss social issues such as gender equality in addition to articles on travel, food and fashion." You'd think this would be on her main page, right?? Nonetheless, Markle's "About" page focuses more on her charitable work and past fighting for women's rights. The website noted: "The Duchess had a keen awareness of social issues and actively participated in charitable work. Aged 11 she successfully campaigned for a company to alter their television advert that had used sexist language to sell washing-up liquid... These early experiences helped to shape her lifelong commitment to causes such as social justice and women's empowerment." Huh. Although, to be fair, the new Duchess will no longer be pursuing an acting career now that she's a royal. Rather, like her husband and other members of the royal family, Meghan will spend her time giving back to charities that benefit the Commonwealth. So it only makes sense that her about page highlight her charity work -- she's a career philanthropist now!! [Image via WENN.].....»»

Royal Shade!! Queen Elizabeth II Reportedly Called Camilla Parker Bowles A "Wicked Woman" — After "Several Martinis"!

All families have drama, even the royal ones! And thanks to Tom Bower's new biography, Rebel Prince: The Power and Passion and Defiance of Prince Charles, fans are getting some insider deets about the longstanding beef between Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Charles' second wife, Camilla Parker Bowles. Related: Harry & Meghan Are Having A Spring-Themed Wedding [...] All families have drama, even the royal ones! And thanks to Tom Bower's new biography, Rebel Prince: The Power and Passion and Defiance of Prince Charles, fans are getting some insider deets about the longstanding beef between Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Charles' second wife, Camilla Parker Bowles. Related: Harry & Meghan Are Having A Spring-Themed Wedding Cake! In case you forgot, Prince William's poppa carried on a lengthy affair with Camilla while married to the now late Princess Diana. Understandably, this fact made the British monarch disapprove of Parker Bowles, especially when Charles wanted to marry her following his ex wife's death. According to an excerpt from the book, which was shared by Dailymail.com on Tuesday, the Prince of Wales asked his royal mother about welcoming Camilla into the royal family during the summer of 1998. Apparently, the queen uttered a pretty harsh response... Per Bower, the Windsor matriarch had drunk "several martinis, and to Charles's surprise she replied forcefully: She would not condone his adultery, nor forgive Camilla for not leaving Charles alone to allow his marriage to recover." DAMNNNN. Oh, and the queen didn't stop there, as she went on to call Camilla "that wicked woman" and informed Charles that she wanted "nothing to do with her." In response to his mother's shade, Charles "tearfully" called his girlfriend and informed her of the royal family hate. Although Charles had aunt Princess Margaret's support during this time, the queen would not budge on her stance. It wasn't until the queen's mother died that Elizabeth softened at the idea of making Camilla a member of their family. By 2005, the twosome had secured the queen's blessing and finally wed. Of course, since both Charles and Camilla's first marriages failed due to their liaison, they were not permitted to marry in the Church of England. Instead, the pair married at Windsor Town Hall and received a blessing at St. George's Chapel. Nonetheless, the now Duchess of Cornwall was left on the outside until her wedding day. Related: Meghan Was Kidnapped As Part Of Her Royal Training! Unlike Meghan Markle, who has been invited to all sorts of official outings, Camilla wasn't asked to attend ceremonies or dinners prior to the nuptials. Bower also claims Elizabeth "even hinted that there was very little special Welsh gold left to make Camilla's wedding ring." Reportedly, the queen also stopped Charles' close aide from planning a lavish reception. The book states Charles wallowed "in gloom" while discussing his mother's lack of an abdication plan. When asked if the monarch would EVER step down, the father of two is said to have answered: "Can you imagine her looking out of the window of Clarence House and waving to me as I paraded in a carriage down The Mall?" Yikes. Thankfully, the feud has lightened over the years, with Elizabeth and Camilla even spending time together at official events. The queen's stance on marriage has changed quite a bit, too!! We know this to be true, as QEII couldn't be more fond of Prince Harry's American divorcée love -- and is letting them wed in the Church of England. All we can say is, PHEW!!

It was recently reported the new Duchess is working hard at getting the hang of certain Royal etiquette. But apparently one area she isn't compromising? PDA! Related: Meghan's Half-Sister Rips Her Apart In Unhinged Twitter Rant According to royal photographer Mark Stewart, Meghan and Prince Harry have been wantonly and unrepentantly crossing the line in front of everyone: "They are not afraid to hold hands. They don't mind showing their emotions." Hand holding! In public! A national scandal! LOLz! For real though, it's apparently fairly naughty by Royal standards. But it's not stopping them! Former palace spokesman Dickie Arbiter told People: "Meghan is used to being touchy-feely, and Harry is the same. Harry has always been tactile." Yes, Dickie, we all saw the Vegas photos. LOLz! Thankfully, it seems their affection is winning everyone over. Royal etiquette expert Myka Meier explained: "While Prince Harry and Meghan holding hands is atypical for royal engagements, it is a seemingly welcomed gesture to show unity and celebration of their engagement period. There is no protocol that says they can not show affection on official engagements, and this gesture makes them relatable and lovable to the public. "Meghan and Prince Harry holding hands at a royal engagement is a refreshingly modern approach to their new role both as a couple and as representatives of the royal family." Sounds like it's all working out fine. Good thing, because you'd need a LOT of those Royal guards if you wanted to pry newlyweds apart! [Image via WENN.].....»»
