Queen Elizabeth became the head of the monarchy at the age of 27 on June 2, 1953, with millions watching as she was crowned at Westminster Abbey.... [[ This is a content summary only.

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!!

Queen Elizabeth II "Hit Hard" By The Passing Of Her Last Corgi!

On Sunday, the last of the monarch's beloved corgis passed away at the age of 14. As you surely know, the 92-year-old has kept faithful pups as her companions since she was a young girl. Related: Meghan's Psychic Predicted She'd End Up In London Willow the corgi descended from Elizabeth's original dog Susan, so the passing certainly marks the end of an era. Back when she was a young princess, Elizabeth was introduced to the corgi breed by her father King George VI. The Windsor family's OG pup was a corgi, named Dookie, who joined the royals in 1933. On her 18th birthday, Elizabeth was gifted Susan -- and the rest is history. Willow's death comes over a year after the Queen's other beloved dog Holly died at the royal residence in Balmoral, Scotland. According to Daily Mail, Willow was put down due to a cancer-related illness. Unsurprisingly, the Queen has been "hit hard" by Willow's death. On the dog's sad passing, royal reporter Richard Kay noted: "It really does feel like the end of an era." A courtier shared a similar sentiment, as they told Kay: "Willow represents a significant thread running through the Queen's life from her teenage years to her 90s. To think that the last one has gone is something of a milestone." So sad. However, the Queen isn't left completely without pets. It's said that the Windsor matriarch adopted a dog named Whisper after the death of one of the gamekeepers at the Sandringham estate. She's also said to have two corgi-dachshund mixes, named Vulcan and Candy. Nonetheless, we mourn Willow's passing alongside the Queen. All dogs go to heaven, right??? [Image via WENN.].....»»

During an INTV conference panel on Tuesday, producers of Netflix's The Crown admitted that series lead Claire Foy was paid less than Matt Smith, the Prince Phillip to her Queen Elizabeth II. Related: Claire & Husband Stephen Campbell Moore Have SPLIT! Foy received a reported $40,000 per episode for her award winning portrayal of the royal, while Smith's salary for playing her husband is unreported. Producers attributed Smith's higher salary to his fame as the title character of Doctor Who, but reassured the audience that her majesty gets a rightful paycheck in the future. Exec Suzanne Mackie quipped: "Going forward, no one gets paid more than the Queen." Good! Though not the best timing for Foy -- as The Crown is recasting almost its entire lineup of actors for seasons three and four, which take place in a later decade. But it is good news for Olivia Colman, who will step in as the (appropriately paid) Queen. Smith's replacement has yet to be named. [Image via Netflix.].....»»

Related: Prince Charles Got Caught Having Phone Sex... The Queen is, of course, 92 years old right now -- and even tough she's in generally good health, it's said that she has told her inner circle of plans to hang up her crown at the age of 95, and pass on the role to Prince Charles. Robert Jobson, the royal commentator for the Daily Mail, had this to say about the early plans being made for the move (below): "I have spoken to a number of high-ranking courtiers who made it clear that preparations for a transition are moving ahead at pace. They have all confirmed that a Regency with Charles taking the lead is now, at the very least, a real possibility." Wow. That's a big move! Photos: Prince Harry & Meghan Markle's Love Story! One senior former member of the Royal Household also added more information about the Queen and her apparent decision to wind things down in her rule (below): "Out of the profound respect the Queen holds for the institution of monarchy and its stewardship, Her Majesty would want to make sure that she has done everything she can for her country and her people before she hands over. She is dutiful to her core. ... Her Majesty is mindful of her age and wants to make sure when the time comes, the transition of the Crown is seamless. I understand the Queen has given the matter considerable thought and believes that, if she is still alive at 95, she will seriously consider passing the reign to Charles." Impressive!

Meghan Markle Has Some Seriously Strict Rules To Follow Now That She"s A Duchess!

Meghan Markle may've had the freedom to take selfies and sign autographs, but the newly minted Duchess of Sussex does not! As you surely know, on Saturday, the American actress officially became a member of the royal family thanks to her wedding to Prince Harry. Understandably, this means that Meghan's life has since drastically changed. Related: Harry [...] Meghan Markle may've had the freedom to take selfies and sign autographs, but the newly minted Duchess of Sussex does not! As you surely know, on Saturday, the American actress officially became a member of the royal family thanks to her wedding to Prince Harry. Understandably, this means that Meghan's life has since drastically changed. Related: Harry & Meghan Will Visit Thomas Markle In Mexico! In fact, there are all sorts of royal rules Miz Markle is now required to follow as a member of the Windsor family. We're being completely serious. Not only is Meghan's style now dictated by royal decree, but also the way she walks and talks. For a breakdown of all the royal restrictions, be sure to proceed (below)... 1. Under no circumstance is Meghan to take a selfie. It's said that the 36-year-old Duchess once told a fan that she and Harry are "not allowed to do selfies." Apparently, this rule is meant to encourage commoners to make eye contact and conversation with the royals. 2. As selfies are a no-no, so is personal social media usage. As you surely know, all news regarding Harry, Prince William, and Kate Middleton comes from the Kensington Royal Twitter and Instagram pages. Thus, ahead of her marriage into the family, Markle had her IG and lifestyle blog go dark. 3. Meghan is to keep her signature to herself. NO AUTOGRAPHS! In order to prevent forgery, the Suits alum is not allowed to sign any autographs. 4. Dark and/or colored nail polish is prohibited. This explains why Meghan wore Essie's Ballet Slippers pink polish at the wedding. Oh, and it's also Queen Elizabeth's favorite color. 5. Royals must ALWAYS travel with mourning clothes. This rule was instated after the then Princess Elizabeth and husband Prince Philip were blindsided by King George VI's death while abroad in Africa. The twosome were forced to travel from Africa to the United Kingdom in regular clothes. Nowadays, royals must always have a set of funeral clothes packed in order to be respectful. 6. No matter what occasion, female family members must always curtsy to the Queen. At official events, Meghan is also expected to curtsy to anyone who outranks her. 7. Short hemlines are a no-go! It's believed that the Queen disapproves of skirts that are more than an inch or two above the knee. So Meghan better toss out those tiny red carpet numbers from her Hollywood days. 8. Speaking of Hollywood, Meghan seemingly can no longer pursue an acting career. She represents the British people now, so she has an image to uphold (and we doubt an acting gig in Tinseltown will help with that). 9. Meghan is discouraged from voting in British elections. Although UK Parliament says that it's not against the law in Britain for royalty to vote, it's viewed to be unconstitutional. 10. Markle can no longer cross her legs -- in public, at least. She'll be expected to perfect the "Duchess Slant" made famous by Princess Diana and proudly carried on by the Duchess of Cambridge. 11. Meghan will have to throw away her wedges, as the Queen despises them! 12. Assigned seating for life! At any royal family gathering, Meghan will always be expected to sit next to husband Harry. 13. Dinnertime is at 8:30 pm! When dining with Harry's monarch grandmother, Meghan will have to be ready at 8:30 pm to eat. The meal will last no later than 10 pm. 14. Also, Meghan isn't allowed to eat before OR after the Queen. Guests dining with the Queen can't start eating until the monarch begins chowing down. However, once she is done, so is the rest of the dinner table. 15. Meghan can't just walk into a royal room. During family functions, there's a strict entrance line, which is as follows: Queen Elizabeth, Prince Philip, Prince Charles, Duchess Camila, Prince William, Duchess Kate, and then most likely, Harry and Meghan. 16. If the Queen's awake, so is Meghan! If Meghan crashes with Queen Elizabeth at all, she is required to stay up until the longtime royal falls asleep. 17. Monopoly has been banned! Supposedly, the Duke of York Prince Andrew previously revealed that the royals are "not allowed to play Monopoly at home," as "it gets too vicious." 18. In order to avoid food poisoning, Meghan can no longer enjoy shellfish. Now, not EVERYONE in the royal family adheres to this rule, but the Queen still does!! Man, oh man. We hope Meghan has this list memorized!! We're wishing her only the best as she embarks on her new royal life! [Image via WENN.].....»»
