Meghan Markle latest news – Duchess and Harry's relentless royal attacks have forced Queen to ditch 'never explain' rule

MEGHAN Markle and Prince Harry's relentless attacks on the Royal Family have forced the Queen to abandon her decades-old approach to public relations, it has been claimed.

The Queen has long believed in the motto "never complain, never explain" to avoid being dragged into scandals that would otherwise go away with the passing on time.

However with Harry and Meghan and their friends so frequently going public with claims the Queen reportedly believes to be untrue, Her Majesty is now considering fighting back, the Mail on Sunday reports.

Ditching "never complain, never explain", the Queen is said to have instructed Buckingham Palace courtiers to correct any statements which misrepresent her private conversations or those of other senior Royals.

    Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have created ‘long-term damage’ with the Queen and the Royal Family after their Oprah interview bombshells, an expert has said.

    The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, who claimed they were mistreated by the family knew the aftermath of the exclusive interview “would be difficult”.

    Speaking on Channel 5 documentary Harry and Meghan: Two Troubled Years, royal expert Katie Nicholl said: “The damage really has been long term.

    “I think they went in knowing it was going to be very difficult for the Royal Family to have any sort of comeback.

    “They certainly weren’t going to sit down and address every single point and accusation made in the interview.”

    PRINCE EDWARDS JOKES ‘OPRAH WHO?’ AFTER NEPHEW HARRY’S EXPLOSIVE INTERVIEW WITH CHATSHOW QUEEN

    Prince Edward and his wife Sophie Wessex joked about nephew Harry’s bombshell interview – quipping “Oprah who?”

    The couple have been “reluctant” to get involved in the ongoing drama between the Royal Family and the Duke and Duchess of Sussex. 

    Prince Harry, who stepped down from Royal duties last March, accused the Royals of “neglect” and claimed that his father Prince Charles made him “suffer” as a child. His shocking new comments on a new Apple+ series with Oprah Winfrey have left senior members of the Royal Family concerned about future comments as they are unable to respond to the claims. 

    Harry and Meghan Markle accused a senior member of the Firm of being “racist” during an hour-long special with Oprah Winfrey in March. 

    An insider claimed that every time Harry or Meghan speak publicly the “family look on with their hands over their eyes.”

    HARRY AND WILLIAM’S PEACE TALKS AT PHILIP FUNERAL WERE ‘DOOMED TO FAIL’ SAYS EXPERT

    A royal source said at the time of the funeral: “It looked like a conciliatory move by William to wait for Harry and allow him to catch up and chat to him and Kate. That could be a significant moment.

    “Harry appeared grateful for the opportunity, and Kate seemed to make a point of letting the brothers walk alone together, having briefly chatted to Harry as well.”

    But Harry and William’s “peace talks” at their grandfather’s funeral were “doomed to fail” – because Harry had been plotting his new bombshell documentary the whole time, an expert claimed.

    The Duke made a series of extraordinary new allegations in the programme The Me You Don’t See – including that father Charles left him to “suffer” amid “total neglect” for his mental health.

    William, Harry and Kate were pictured walking together after the service, while it was understood Charles and Harry had also spoken privately.

    BEATRICE’S PREGNANCY ANNOUNCEMENT ‘DELIBERATE TWO FINGERS’ AT HARRY AND MEGHAN, ROYAL EXPERT CLAIMS

    Princess Beatrice has recently announced that she is expecting her first child with husband Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi.

    However, royal fans may have noticed that the Duchess of York’s pregnancy news comes on the same day that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are celebrating their third wedding anniversary.

    And according to royal expert and author Duncan Larcombe, this was no accident.

    Speaking to Fabulous Digital, the writer said: “The fact it was Buckingham Palace that made the announcement proves this was not a simple oversight.

    “A great deal of care is taken over the timings of major announcements such as Royal pregnancies, and it is extremely unlikely diary staff were unaware of the significance of the day for Harry and Meghan.

    PIERS REVELATION

    Piers later revealed: “We had two hours in the pub, she had a couple of dirty martinis and pints – we got on brilliantly.

    “Then I put her in a cab, and it turns out it was the cab that took her to a party where she met Prince Harry.

    “The next night they had a solo dinner and that was the last I ever heard from Meghan Markle. I never heard from her again – Meghan Markle ghosted me.”

    Piers said he was “ditched like a sack of spuds!”

    MEGHAN’S DAD CLAIMS HE ‘HASN’T DONE ANYTHING TERRIBLY WRONG’

    Meghan Markle’s dad has yet again done another interview bringing her back into the spot light once again.

    Thomas Markle has claimed, in an interview with Australia’s Sixty Minutes programme, that he hasn’t done anything “terribly wrong” to his daughter.

    He claimed whilst he had made mistakes and apologised for them, he hasn’t done anything too wrong that would excuse Meghan for shutting him out.

    “If I had done something terribly wrong, that would be fine, but I haven’t,” he tells reporter Tom Steinfort.

    LILI’S LIFE

    Meghan Markle hinted how she will raise her new daughter Lilibet Diana years before welcoming the tot.

    The Duchess of Sussex, 39, shared a powerful poem on her old Instagram page before being a royal about vowing to never call her daughter “beautiful”.

    The poem, written by African-American poet Nayyirah Waheed, speaks to a daughter and says it is not her beauty that will guide her through life but her self-confidence.

    It says that “knowing your worth” as a person “can save your life.”

    The poem states that “every being is born beautiful” and “beauty is a given”, but raising someone on beauty alone will “starve” them and make them “raw” and “weak”.

    The poem first appeared in Nayyirah’s 2013 collection Salt, but Meghan shared it with followers in 2017; the year before she married Prince Harry.
