Meghan Markle latest news: Prince Harry a 'greedy twerp’ rants Piers Morgan as Duchess joins £29M four-book 'mega-deal'

MEGHAN Markle is set to write a wellness guide as part of a four-book mega deal after a £29MILLION bidding war.

The Duchess will pen the tome as part of a contract she and Prince Harry have struck with Penguin Random House.

And one of Harry's books can only be released after the Queen's death – likely deepening the Royal Family's reservations over the deal, it's reported.

Lawyers for the couple initially said they wouldn't be commenting on those claims – but later said they were "false and defamatory" and only one memoir is planned.

    LADY LOUISE ‘COULD USE PRINCESS TITLE’ MONTHS AFTER CHARLES AND EDWARD TITLE ROW

    The Earl and Countess of Wessex’s daughter will be legally entitled to style herself as Her Royal Highness Princess Louise – just as her cousins Beatrice and Eugenie do.

    But she could be alone in her title change as Prince Charles is said to be refusing to grant his younger brother Edward – Louise’s dad – the title of Duke of Edinburgh after their father Philip’s death.

    A source told the Daily Mail: “If Charles is going to play silly games over titles, Edward and Sophie might need to ensure that they use the titles their family already have.

    “Louise is a humble teenager and doesn’t act like a princess, but she is one – that’s a fact.”

    Edward has waited over twenty years to inherit his late father’s title – but Charles is reportedly less keen on the idea.

    MEGHAN MARKLE ‘WILL WRITE A WELLNESS GUIDE AS PART OF FOUR-BOOK MEGA-DEAL AFTER £29M BIDDING WAR’

    The Duchess will pen the tome as part of a contract she and Prince Harry have struck with Penguin Random House.

    And one of Harry’s books can only be released after the Queen’s death – likely deepening the Royal Family’s reservations over the deal, it’s reported.

    Lawyers for the couple initially said they wouldn’t be commenting on those claims – but later said they were “false and defamatory” and only one memoir is planned.

    That book will be published next year. Harry vowed that it will examine the “highs and lows” of his extraordinary life.

    It will arrive during the year of his grandmother’s Platinum Jubilee.

    And his wife will also write a volume in the quartet, the Daily Mail reports.

      ‘TIRED, GRIEVING’ QUEEN HEADS TO BALMORAL IN BID TO RISE ABOVE SCANDAL CAUSED BY PRINCE HARRY’S BOOK REVELATION

      A “TIRED, grieving” Queen has gone to Balmoral in a bid to rise above the scandal caused by Prince Harry’s book revelation.

      The monarch, 95, made her first trip away from Windsor since Prince Philip’s death. The Queen went to Scotland after telling aides she wants to avoid London as it holds painful memories of Philip, who died in April.

      Our source said: “She could not wait to get away. She is still grieving very deeply and wanted to head to Balmoral to escape from things. She is also incredibly tired.

      “The announcement of Harry’s book, and the new claims that he could release four books, are the last thing she needed. It is only just over three months since Philip was buried, so the book announcement is incredibly insensitive and seems another two fingers to the monarchy.

      “But Her Majesty has told her family and staff that the only way to deal with it is to rise above it. “She has actually surprised some staff with her restrained reaction to the book — although the suggestion another could be released after she dies has not helped.”

      SOME BELIEVE MEGHAN WILL HOLD LILIBET'S CHRISTENING IN US AS FROGMORE COTTAGE CLEARED OUT

      Some believe Meghan could hold Lilibet's christening in the US and use Bishop Michael Curry, who gave a sermon at their wedding.

      Meghan has not returned to Britain since March last year and the last of Harry’s possessions were removed from their former home, Frogmore Cottage, Windsor and put in storage this month.

      Traditionally, royals are baptised within four months of birth.

      A senior Anglican church figure told The Sun on Sunday: “It is not a totally clear area of canon law.

      “The requirements for acceding to the throne do not include baptism, but it would be normal to be baptised. No problems arise from Lilibet being American.”

      PRINCE HARRY 'HAS WELL AND TRULY GONE ROGUE' SAYS ROYAL AUTHOR

      It comes as a royal expert said Harry has well and truly "gone rogue" by announcing he is writing a memoir.

      Richard Fitzwilliams fears the "totally unpredictable" Duke of Sussex could use the book as "leverage" against the royals. Despite being 18 months away, its release is already threatening to widen the family rift and put the royal celebration in turmoil.

      The Palace has allegedly been warned they "should be afraid" of what's to come from it.

      And Fitzwilliams agrees, stating that Harry could use it as a weapon against the Firm to get what he wants – although what that is remains unclear.

      He told The Sun Online: "Its mere existence is a form of a lever to potentially use against the royal family in whatever is to come. This book has the potential to be dynamite. But the thing is, what do the Sussexes really want from the royal family next? What do they want them to do?

      "They have gone rogue. It is a fact. It’s incredibly worrying because they are so totally unpredictable. Anything is possible."

      PUBLISHERS FLEW FROM LONDON TO LA TO TAKE PART IN AUCTION FOR HARRY BOOK DEAL

      Two publishers reportedly flew out from London to Harry's home in California and took part in an 'auction' for the rights to his book.

      A source told the Mail: "He conducted negotiations – he had a very 'take it or leave it' attitude.

      "His starting price was $25m (£18m) and the final figure was way north of that, possibly as much as $35 to 40m (£25-29m).

      "Those involved were actually very shocked by his approach, which was to look at them coldly and state his demands: $25million."

      Harry's wife Meghan Markle, 39, is also set to write a "wellness" guide as part of the contract with the publisher.

      PRINCE HARRY TO RELEASE SECOND BOOK AFTER QUEEN'S DEATH- REPORT

      PRINCE Harry has signed a four-book deal that may be worth up to £29million – with the second to be released after the Queen's death.

      Harry, 36, is set to publish his explosive memoir which he vowed will examine the "highs and lows" of his extraordinary life.

      His lucrative deal – worth up to a potential £29million – with publishers Penguin Random House involves four books.

      The second of those books is due out only after the Queen has died, the Daily Mail reported.

      Industry insiders reportedly said the "tell-all" premise of Harry's memoir was just the "tip of the iceberg".

      RUMOURS HARRY & MEGHAN DID NOT ASK QUEEN ABOUT LILIBET'S NAME

      Harry and Meghan have angered the royals after it was claimed the Queen was not asked about their daughter’s name.

      Lilibet has been Her Maj’s nickname among family since her childhood.

      Some insiders claim the row, plus Harry announcing shock plans for a memoir, has scuppered a Windsor christening.

      Penny Junor, Harry’s biographer, said: “A christening should be a lovely, happy event with people pleased to see each other.

      “If the relationship is as frosty as it is for the foreseeable future then I can’t see it being that type of affair.”

      MEGHAN AND HARRY’S DAUGHTER LILIBET IS STILL MISSING FROM ROYAL FAMILY’S LINE OF SUCCESSION

      MEGHAN and Harry’s daughter Lilibet is missing from the Royal Family official website’s line of succession — seven weeks after she was born.

      The omission of the tot, who is eighth in line behind brother Archie, is sure to anger the Sussexes.

      Zara and Mike Tindall’s son Lucas has been listed since his birth in March.

      Meghan, 39, and Harry, 36, have previously moaned to chatshow host Oprah Winfrey that Archie had not been made a prince.

      Lilibet was born in the US on June 4 and has no HRH title but automatically joins the line of succession. She is not included on the website still – seven weeks after being born.

      AUSSIE CLAIMING TO BE PRINCE CHARLES & CAMILLA’S LOVECHILD COMPARES PIC OF HIS SON TO THE QUEEN

      Aussie Simon Dorante-Day, 55, is adamant he was conceived in 1965 when he says the royal couple were first romantically linked as teenagers.

      The UK-born engineer believes the couple conceived him when Charles was just 17, and Camilla 18 and he was later adopted by a family who had links to the Royal Family.

      The father-of-nine claims his adoptive grandparents Winifred and Ernest worked as a cook and gardener for the Queen and Prince Philip.

      They apparently told him “many times” he was Charles and Camilla‘s child.

      He has now had posted a picture on Facebook of his son, Liam, in the middle of two of Queen with the words: “Ummmm. An interesting comparison”.

      PRINCE HARRY AND ‘FURIOUS’ MEGHAN ‘WILL RESPOND AGGRESSIVELY TO THOMAS MARKLE’

      Dad Thomas’ explosive vow to force his estranged daughter and son-in-law to let him meet his grandchildren could be the “final nail in the coffin” for their relationship, it was also claimed.

      His vow comes as a royal commentator, Jonathan Sacerdoti, warned of a “growing divide between the Sussexes and the royal family” after Harry announced his memoir would be published next year.

      Former Hollywood lighting director Thomas Markle has yet to meet his two grandkids due to his fractious relationship with his ex-Royal daughter – who he hasn’t seen since before her 2018 marriage to Harry, the Duke of Sussex.

      “I will be petitioning the California courts for the right to see my grandchildren in the very near future,” Markle, 77, told Fox News from his Rosarito, Mexico, home.

      However, relationship expert Tina Wilson told The Sun Online: “The Sussexes are likely to respond aggressively with legal paperwork back, if and when Mr Markle files his officially with the court of California.”

      MEGHAN’S HALF BROTHER JOINS AUSTRALIA BIG BROTHER

      Meghan Markle will be braced for more embarrassment as her half brother Thomas Markle Jr is set to appear on Australia’s version of Big Brother.

      The MailOnline reports that he was spotted by staff at Sydney airport before going into hotel quarantine, to isolate before he enters the show.

      He does not have a relationship with Meghan, Harry or their two children.

      When he joins the show Meghan will be braced for claims about her after previously being labelled as “phony”.

        DUKE AND DUCHESS HAS ‘WELL DEVELOPED PROPOSALS WITH QUIBI’ IN PLACE FROM 2019

        In September 2020 it was revealed that the Sussexes had signed a lucrative multi-million-pound production deal with Netflix.

        Prince Harry and Meghan agreed to a multi-year deal to produce nature series, documentaries and children’s programming.

        In April, it was revealed that the couple had been in talks with another billion-dollar backed streaming service before Megxit.

        This, according to The Telegraph, led to tensions with Palace staff as the couple were accused of “cashing in” on their status as Royals.

        A source close to the situation said: “There were well-developed proposals in place with Quibi from early 2019.”

        KATE AND MEGHAN’S TEARS

        Reports of the row over bridesmaid dresses first surfaced when it was reported Meghan had made Kate cry in the run-up to her and Harry’s wedding in May 2018.

        But in her Oprah Winfrey TV interview, Meghan, 39, denied that and claimed it was the other way round.

        She said “the reverse happened” and that Kate had apologised to her for making her cry.

        Meg added: “The narrative with Kate – which didn’t happen – was really, really difficult and something that. I think that’s when everything changed, really.”

        PRINCESS EUGENIE & BEATRICE ‘STUNNED’ BY PRINCE HARRY’S TELL-ALL BOOK DEAL DESPITE REMAINING CLOSE TO SUSSEXES

        PRINCESSES Eugenie and Beatrice are reportedly "stunned" by Prince Harry's tell-all book deal.

        Harry, 36, is set to publish his explosive memoir which he vowed will examine the "highs and lows" of his extraordinary life.

        Members of the Royal Family are now waiting to see what the duke will write about them.

        A senior royal reportedly told the Daily Mail: "The emotional turmoil as they wait over a year for publication is going to be torturous.

        "What's really telling is even the relatives he remains closest to, like princesses Eugenie and Beatrice, are stunned by what he's up to."

        In an interview with the Telegraph, Sarah cautiously said: “All I want to say on this is that Oprah helped me greatly when I went to the US and was interviewed by her.

        “I’m a great supporter of Oprah and everything that she does.”
