Princess Eugenie of York returned to Instagram for the first time since her dad Prince Andrew gave an explosive interview about his involvement with serial pedophile Jeffrey Epstein.

The 29-year-old royal posted a photo commemorating two years since she announced her engagement to new husband Jack Brookshank. "On this day two years ago... Jack and I announced we were engaged," she captioned the image.
 

Eugenie wisely followed the advice of her grandmother Queen Elizabeth, 93, who favors waiting at least 5 years before making life-altering decisions, such as marriages or divorce.

Eugenie and Jack, 33, dated for 7 long years before they tied the knot in October 2018.

#tbt to THE greatest day of my life

A post shared by Princess Eugenie (@princesseugenie) on

Eugenie's father Prince Andrew, 59, gave an explosive interview to BBC about his ties to Epstein last November.

Andrew denied sleeping with underage girls during his frequent visits to Epstein's multi-million dollar Manhattan townhouse and trips on Epstein's infamous "Lolita Express."

The Queen was so disturbed by the whole sordid scandal that she ordered Andrew to step back from his royal duties and banished him from the Palace.

Andrew released a statement saying the scandal "has become a major disruption to my family's work and the valuable work going on in the many organizations and charities that I am proud to support."

Both Eugenie and her older sister Princess Beatrice have maintained low profiles since her father shamed the Royal Family. Eugenie (left) and Beatrice are pictured with their dad, Andrew, at the wedding of their cousin, Prince William and Kate Middleton in 2011.

Eugenie and Beatrice's cousin, Prince Harry, married an American divorcee, Meghan Markle, after just two years of dating.

After 19 months of marriage, Meghan convinced Harry to quit his royal duties and move with her to Canada to lead self-centered celebrity lifestyles.

Harry defied his grandmother's advice by rushing into a quickie marriage with Meghan in May 2018.

A grinning Prince Harry arrived in Canada, leaving his royal life behind after completing his royal duties in London, England.

According to published reports, Harry purchased a ticket on a British Airways Boeing 747 for the 10-hour flight from London, arriving in Victoria, British Columbia late Monday night.

The 35-year-old prince then took a West Jet turboprop plane for the short 15-minute hop to Vancouver Island. He was accompanied by three royal protection officers on his flight.

Harry's wife, formerly Her Royal Highness Meghan Markle, was not at the airport to meet Harry. She was spotted at the same airport days earlier to meet a friend flying in from mainland Vancouver.

A 3-car convoy ferried Harry and his entourage for the 10-minute drive to a gated mega-mansion where Meghan is staying with their 8-month-old son Archie Harrison.

The $14 million waterfront mansion is owned by a Russian oligarch with links to the Ukrainian government.

Friends say Harry cautioned Meghan not to get too happy in the luxury mansion as they are downsizing to more reasonable accommodations.

Sources say the 38-year-old mum of one hired a team of agents and publicists to book future TV and film roles for her. Gossip mongers say Meghan thought being in service to the Queen was beneath her.

Meghan was seen taking a leisurely stroll with her two rescue dogs in the woods near the Vancouver mansion as two royal protection officers walked a few steps behind her.

She struggled to carry baby son Archie in a baby carrier while controlling her dogs on leashes. Concerned moms on social media criticized Meghan for carrying her son so precariously with one strap of the carrier slipping off her shoulder.

Harry is expected to return to London for more official engagements, but Meghan will not be by her husband's side.

Piers Morgan unleashed his fury at the departing Prince Harry, who gave an emotional speech during a private party for his African charity in England on Sunday night.

"Once Meghan and I were married, we were excited. We were hopeful and we were here to serve," Harry said on Sunday. "For those reasons it brings me great sadness that it has come to this."

"The decision that I have made for my wife and I to step back is not one I made lightly. It was so many months of talks, after so many years of challenges, and I know I haven't always gotten it right, but as far as this goes there really was no other option."

Harry's speech came one day after Queen Elizabeth released a statement saying Harry and his wife Meghan Markle will stop using their HRH titles this spring.

It is believed that the Queen refused to allow Harry and Meghan to use their HRH titles to prevent them from profiting off their royal names.

Morgan lashed out at the 35-year-old Prince in a scathing editorial published in the Daily Mail Online on Monday.

"The cause of his 'great sadness' is that he and his wife Megan are quitting the Royal Family to go and live in North American and be full-time celebrities," wrote Morgan.

The British journalist called Harry and Meghan "just another pair of grasping, money-chasing celebrities."

Referring to them as "royal Kardashians," Morgan laughably dismissed Harry's claim that he and Meghan "will continue to lead a life of service."

"We've already seen from the cringe-making clips of him (successfully) hustling the boss of Disney for Megan for voiceover work, that the only service on their minds is to commercially exploit their royal status and promote her acting career."

"Oh, I know, I know... the only accepted narrative, certainly on Twitter, is that the mean, beastly, racist media has driven out poor Harry and Meghan with our despicable antics," Morgan wrote.

"It could just be that Meghan and Harry are a pair of spoiled, entitled, hypocritical brats who decided to hold the Queen and Monarchy to ransom so they could have their royal cake and eat it, and have now had their bluff called and sent packing."

Morgan added: "We shamefully refused to let them lecture us about the environment AND use private jets like taxis!"

Morgan was referring to the recent controversy when Harry and Meghan were criticized for constantly complaining about the climate - while flying all over the world in luxury private jets.

The furor died down after Harry and Meghan agreed to fly commercial jets rather than private jets which can cost $250,000 for a round trip from London to Canada.

Morgan's column was published as Prince Harry attended the UK-Africa Investment Summit in London on Monday. The media is calling it his final official duty as an ex-royal before he heads to Canada to join Meghan and their son Archie Harrison.

Prince Harry gave an emotional speech at a private dinner for his charity supporting young people with HIV and AIDS on Sunday - a day after Queen Elizabeth released a statement saying Harry and wife Meghan Markle will stop using their HRH titles as of this spring.

The Queen's announcement concluded a week of urgent talks with senior royals after Harry and Meghan's bombshell announcement that they were stepping back from their royal duties and moving to North America.

Meghan, 38, fled London the next day in her haste to return to a gated waterfront mansion on Vancouver Island in North America where she left her 8-month-old son Archie Harrison with her confidante, Jessica Mulroney, and a nanny.

A Palace official has said, "once the new arrangements take effect in the spring, Harry and Meghan will be known as "Harry, Duke of Sussex" and "Meghan, Duchess of Sussex".

The shocking announcement by the Queen sparked rumors that Harry and Meghan were divorcing. Friends have said they expect Harry to divorce Meghan within a year.

But the 35-year-old Prince spoke warmly of his social climbing wife during his speech on Sunday.

"Finally, the second son of Diana got hitched... hurray!" said Harry. "I also know that you've come to know me well enough over these past years to trust that the woman I chose as my wife upholds the same values as I do - and she does. And she is the same woman I fell in love with."

He added:

"Once Meghan and I were married, we were excited. We were hopeful and we were here to serve. For those reasons it brings me great sadness that it has come to this. The decision that I have made for my wife and I to step back is not one I made lightly. It was so many months of talks, after so many years of challenges, and I know I haven't always gotten it right, but as far as this goes there really was no other option.

"Our hope was to continue serving the Queen, the commonwealth and my military associations but without public funding. Unfortunately, that wasn't possible."

 
When a Palace official was asked what to call the couple, the official reportedly said the couple should be referred to as "Sir" and "Ma'am".

Harry and Meghan will live off of Harry's £2.3 million annual allowance from his father Prince Charles (pictured), who is said to be "devastated."

And, while Harry and Meghan will not be stripped of their coveted HRH titles, they have agreed not to use their titles to enrich themselves.

Minutes after the Queen's official announcement on their future, Meghan updated their "Sussex Royal" website with a statement referring to her and Harry as "their Royal Highnesses" - which seemed to fly in the face of what the Queen said about them not using their royal titles.

According to London's Dailymail.com, Harry and Meghan's agreement to stop using their HRH titles is the price they must pay for their independence.

Harry's mother, the late Princess Diana was stripped of her HRH title after she divorced Prince Charles in 1996.

Diana was given millions in the divorce, but the Queen removed her bodyguards - leaving Diana to fend for herself, until she met Dodi Fayed, the son of Egyptian billionaire Mohamed El Fayed, who provided bodyguards of his own.

They died together in a high-speed car crash inside a tunnel in Paris, while being pursued by paparazzi in 1997. Harry was 12 at the time of his mother's death.

Harry and Meghan have also agreed to repay the £2.4 million in Sovereign Grant taxpayer money they spent to refurbish their Frogmore Cottage home in Windsor.

The Queen gifted the home to Harry and Meghan so they will have someplace to stay when they visit. The couple will pay rent on the house - up to £360,000 per year. But Meghan's confidants have already said she has no plans to return to London. Sources say Meghan's plan all along was to move back to Toronto.

According to the Daily Mail, Meghan had her things "put into storage" in Canada - contradicting previous claims that she moved ALL of her personal belongings to London before marrying Harry.

Friends say Meghan feels she deserves better than the modest cottage and a life of servitude in London. They say she enjoys living lavishly in a $14 million mansion on Vancouver Island. The house is owned by a Russian businessman with links to the Ukrainian government.

Sources say Harry is "annoyed" that his wife is living it up with her friends in another man's house that he can hardly afford on his £2.3 million annual allowance from his dad.

Harry has reportedly told Meghan not to get too comfortable in that house, as they will be downsizing to more reasonable accommodations as soon as he joins her and son Archie in Canada.

Sources say Harry and Meghan have reached the post-honeymoon phase in their marriage when Meghan needs more narcissistic supply to keep her happy.

Friends say Meghan wants a husband who can provide her with a lifestyle of wealth and materialism that she feels she deserves - rather than living off of handouts from the Royal Family.

The former c-list "Suits" actress wants to return to television or even star in movies in the near future. There are reports that Meghan wants to play herself in the Netflix royal drama "The Crown."

The mother-of-one signed a deal to do voiceovers for Disney last fall in return for a donation to an elephant charity in Africa. And Harry has already collaborated on a six-part mental health special for Apple TV with his friend, American billionaire and television mogul Oprah Winfrey.

The couple plan to create a production company similar to the one owned by former U.S. President Barack Obama and Michelle Obama, who signed a lucrative deal to produce TV specials and movies for Netflix.

Netflix has expressed interest in working with Harry and Meghan. A Netflix exec reportedly said, "Who wouldn't be interested? Yes, sure."

But Harry has promised the Queen they won't sign any "dodgy deals" that might further embarrass the Royal Family.

More film footage has surfaced from a red carpet movie premiere in July, that shows Harry and Meghan begging another American film executive for work.

Earlier video footage from The Lion King premiere showed Harry begging Disney chief Robert Iger for voiceover work for Meghan in the next Lion King film. "You do know she does voiceovers?"

Iger is heard replying, "Ah, I did not know that."

"You seem surprised," said Harry, while Meghan stood nearby pretending not to hear the conversation.

Iger appeared stunned by the highly unusual request from a royal at a movie premiere of all places. Later, Iger was seen gesturing toward Harry and telling his wife, Willow Bay, what Harry asked him. Bay looked surprised by what she heard.

In the new video footage, both Harry and Meghan are seen asking The Lion King director Jon Favreau for jobs in the next Lion King movie.

In the video Harry tells Favreau: "If anyone needs any voiceover work..." before Meghan interrupts him - as she always does - and says: "That's really why we're here. It's the pitch!"

Harry then says: "She'll tackle any voiceover - just not Scar," referring to the villain character who tries to steal the kingdom from Simba.

Semi-retired American singer Beyonce Knowles-Carter, 39, who voiced Nala in the movie, is seen in the background covering her face and giggling at the royals, whom she obviously thought were joking.

In another still from the video, Beyonce looks at the royal couple with disdain, apparently after realizing they weren't joking.

Meghan has reportedly assembled a team of Hollywood agents and publicists to discuss future projects for her. Meghan's own father Thomas Markle said she is turning the Royal Family into a Walmart.

In a sensational interview with Channel 5, Thomas said Meghan and Harry are "embarrassing" and "cheapening" the Royal Family by quitting.

He added: "This is not the girl I raised."

Archie Harrison's info was accidentally removed from his mother Meghan Markle's biography on the Royal Family's official website.

Archie's parents shocked Britain when they announced they were leaving the Royal Family in an Instagram post on Jan. 8.

According to People.com, the couple's 8-month-old son was "accidentally" removed from Meghan's official profile on the Royal.UK website.
 

The omission was likely made because it was widely believed at the time, that Queen Elizabeth would take custody of the royal heir. The Queen took custody of Harry and his brother, Prince William, after their parents, Princess Diana and Prince Charles divorced in 1996.

British law states all royal grandchildren are in the legally custody of the Queen. But Archie is the Queen's great-grandson, which means she does not have legal custody of him.

The website also claimed Meghan and Harry still reside in a small cottage at Kensington Palace. But Harry and Meghan moved out of their Nottingham Cottage on the palace grounds in April, just before Archie was born.

In related news, Queen Elizabeth is reportedly "annoyed" that Harry and Meghan spent over $2 million in taxpayer money to renovate and decorate Frogmore Cottage in Windsor.

Harry is currently staying alone at Frogmore Cottage, while Meghan and Archie are currently living in a $14 million mansion in Vancouver.

Harry has no plans to reunite with his family any time soon.

Prince Harry hasn't seen his wife Meghan Markle in over a week. He reportedly has no plans to reunite with her anytime soon.

Meghan fled London last week after the couple's bombshell announcement to quit the royal family. She returned to Vancouver where her son, Archie Harrison, was staying with a nanny.

According to Buckingham Palace, Harry, 35, will remain in London to attend more meetings next week.

That means he will not reunite with Meghan and their son Archie, whom he hasn't seen in nearly 2 weeks.

Queen Elizabeth gave her blessings for her grandson Harry and his wife to "step back" from their royal duties and divide their time between the UK and Canada. But friends say Megan, 38, will never return to live in the UK.

On Thursday, Harry was seen at Buckingham Palace meeting with young rugby players in preparation for the 2021 Rugby League World Cup for the men's and women's wheelchair tournament.

The appearance marked Harry's first official public outing since his shocking announcement last Wednesday.

Harry dodged questions from the media about his future plans. He was photographed smiling with rugby players while constantly checking his cell phone.

Meanwhile, someone updated the couple's Instagram account with a video showing the grinning prince behind the scenes.

The video was accompanied by the Stone Roses' independent hit "This is the One," which contains the lyrics "I'd like to leave the country for a month of Sundays."

Canada isn't rolling out the welcome mat for Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Markle after they quit their duties as "senior" royals last week.

Queen Elizabeth II gave the couple her blessing to step away from their duties and divide their time between Canada and the UK.

But Canada's biggest newspaper says the former Duke and Duchess of Sussex aren't welcome to live there since they are no longer "senior royals."

Photo by UK Press via Getty Images

In a scathing editorial published on Wednesday, The Globe said Harry and Meghan are "welcome to visit, but so long as you are senior royals.

"Canada cannot allow you to come to stay ... it breaks an unspoken constitutional taboo," the editorial said.

The article says Harry's presence in Canada disturbs the country's long history of breaking away from the British political system. Canada broke away from British rule centuries ago.

"[Canada's] unique monarchy, and its delicate yet essential place in our constitutional system, means that a royal resident - the Prince is sixth in the line of succession - is not something that Canada can allow," the paper said.

"A royal living in this country does not accord with the longstanding nature of the relationship between Canada and Britain, and Canada and the Crown."

The article added: "If you're a senior member of our Royal Family, this country cannot become your home."

The article was published amid reports that Canada would foot the expensive bill for the couple's security detail.

Meghan and her infant son, Archie, are guests of a Russian billionaire in his $14 million mansion on Vancouver Island.

Harry, who remains in London, isn't expected to join Meghan and Archie in Canada for at least another week.

Queen Elizabeth is reportedly disappointed with her grandson Prince Harry for disrespecting the monarchy's customs and traditions by begging an American for a job for his wife Meghan Markle.

The shameful incident took place in July at London's premiere of Disney's remake of The Lion King. Harry, 35, was caught on video asking Disney CEO Bob Iger for a voice over job for Meghan.

A stunned Iger seemed caught off guard by Harry's unusual request. Their interaction was awkward as Iger struggled to find an appropriate response to Harry's request.

The gossip around Hollywood is Meghan, 38, nagged her husband to beg Iger for a job - even though she worked full-time for the Royal Family.

Now that the video of that awkward exchange is all over social media, Buckingham Palace wants the videos taken down.

Queen Elizabeth II has expressed her full support for Prince Harry and Meghan, Duchess of Sussex as they prepare to "live a more independent life" with their infant son in Canada.

Rumor has it that the couple was advised by Barack and Michelle Obama, seen here with the royals at Kensington Palace in 2016.

The Queen issued a rare statement about personal family matters on Monday, Jan. 13, according to WENN.com. The Queen said Harry and Meghan won't rely on British taxpayers to fund their new lifestyle.

The statement followed a two-hour summit at her royal residence Sandringham Estate, where she sat down with Harry, his brother Prince William, and their dad, heir to the throne Prince Charles, to discuss the couple's next steps.

Meghan joined the meeting via CCTV from Vancouver where she is staying with her 8-month-old son, Archie.

In her statement, the Queen said, "My family and I are entirely supportive of Harry and Meghan's desire to create a new life as a young family."

"Although we would have preferred them to remain full-time working members of the Royal Family, we respect and understand their wish to live a more independent life as a family while remaining a valued part of my family."

"Harry and Meghan have made clear that they do not want to be reliant on public funds in their new lives," the statement continues. "It has therefore been agreed that there will be a period of transition, in which the Sussexes will spend time in Canada and the U.K.

Harry, the son of Prince Charles and his late ex-wife, Diana, Princess of Wales, is sixth in line to the throne.

He and Meghan wed in May 2018.

The following video about Meghan is making the rounds on social media in London.

More signs emerge that Meghan Markle had no plans to stay in London after marrying Britain's Prince Harry. The couple announced their split from the royal family in an Instagram post last week.

Meghan then flew from London to Vancouver on a budget one-way commercial airline ticket, leaving hapless Harry behind to put out the fires she set.

She fled London before the 3-year residency requirement was set to kick in next year, making her a British citizen. According to published reports, Meghan, 38, has no plane ticket back to London.

In another sign that she is not going back: Meghan flew her 2 Labrador rescue dogs from London to Vancouver where she is staying with her eight month-old son Archie in a luxury $14 million mansion hideaway, rumored to be owned by a Russian billionaire.

In their shocking announcement the couple said they planned to become financially independent, and split their time between the UK and North America.

Meanwhile, Harry, 35, will attend the so-called "Sandringham Summit" with senior royals on Monday at the Queen's Sandringham estate.

The 93-year-old Queen of England called the summit to discuss Meghan and Harry's plans for the future. The Queen is reportedly upset that the couple made their public announcement without giving her advanced warning.

Prince Charles and Prince William (left) are described as "incandescent with rage. "I've put my arm around my brother all our lives. I can't do it anymore," William reportedly said, according to the Daily Mail.

The royals will discuss how much money the couple will receive from the Queen and Harry's father Prince Charles, who currently funds 95% of the couple's lifestyle. British taxpayers foot the other 5%.

Also up for discussion is whether the couple will retain their HRH titles and whether the taxpayers will continue to pay for their security team.

By comparison, Harry's mum, Princess Diana, was booted from the royal palace with only the clothes on her back after she cheated on Charles with an Indian doctor.

Diana was stripped of her title and she lost custody of her 2 minor sons, Harry (pictured) and William. Additionally her bodyguards were relieved of their duties, leaving Diana to fend for herself.

54% of respondents to a Daily Mail poll said Harry and Meghan should be stripped of their royal titles. 80 percent said the couple should receive no support from either the royals or the taxpayers.

But Harry and Meghan can still live comfortably on his $25 million fortune from his late mother's estate.

Friends are predicting Harry will divorce Meghan once he realizes she used him to elevate her status among Toronto's moneyed set.

Meghan Markle signed a lucrative voiceover deal with Disney before she and husband Prince Harry quit the Royal Family.

According to London's Daily Mail, Meghan signed the voiceover deal with Disney Films in return for a small donation to an elephant charity.

The news comes as Meghan and Harry announced their decision to "step back" from their royal duties and "transition" to a "progressive" new lifestyle in Toronto, Canada - far away from the British media.

The Daily Mail reports that the royal family accused the couple of already agreeing to a deal with Disney films - which is a no-no for senior royals.

The Duchess of Sussex recorded the voiceover during her extended 7-week holiday break with Harry and their 8-month-old son Archie on Vancouver Island, BC.

Meghan, 38, fled back to her son who remained with a nanny on Vancouver Island, leaving Prince Harry in London to put out the flames she set.

Harry, 35, is expected to join his family in Canada this weekend. But Harry's friends worry that he is right back where he started before he married Meghan in May 2018.

He flew long transatlantic trips to secretly woo the Suits actress in Toronto from 2016-2018.

Friends say the whole point of Harry marrying Meghan was so she would move to London to be with him.

Meghan's friends aren't surprised that she broke and ran back to Toronto before her 2-year wedding anniversary. They say that was her plan all along. She never intended to stay in London.

One friend described Meghan as a narcissist who always has to be the center of attention.

"I saw this coming - it was just a matter of time," the Daily Mail quoted one of Meghan's closest confidantes.

Photo by BACKGRID

"With Meghan, it has always been her way or the highway. She is always the center of the relationship, regardless of Harry's title. She wants to be in the limelight, but under her terms."

She added: "Meghan likes to flee when things get heavy, and observe form afar what she has done. I'm sure she wanted to get back to her inner circle (in Canada)."

Friends predict Harry will divorce Meghan once he realizes she used him to elevate her social status in Toronto's high society.

Meghan is in for a big surprise when she finds out Archie is legally in the custody of the monarchy, and she has no legal claim to her son if Harry divorces her.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have been officially removed from the Royal Family display at Madame Tussauds in London, England, RadarOnline.com reported.

The wax figures were removed after the couple announced their intentions to abdicate from the monarchy following their secret move to Toronto, Canada.

In a shocking announcement on Wednesday, Harry and Megan said they would "step back" from their royal duties and work toward gaining their financial independence from British taxpayers.

On Thursday, their wax figures were unceremoniously removed from a display featuring replicas of Queen Elizabeth, Prince Philip, Prince William and Kate Middleton.

"From today Meghan and Harry's figures will no longer appear in our Royal Family set," said Steve Davies, General Manager at Madame Tussauds London.

"Alongside the rest of the world we are reacting to the surprising news that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex will be stepping back as senior Royals."

The wax figures will remain in storage at Tussauds London - in case the ex-Royals change their minds and return to their royal duties.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle shocked the world when they announced they were leaving the Royal Family as "senior royals."

The couple spent Thanksgiving and Christmas at a $10 million estate in Vancouver, Canada.

They returned to London this week for their first and final public appearances as members of the Royal Family.

They were so concerned that the Queen would take their 8-month-old son Archie that they left him behind in Toronto, Canada.

According to People.com, Meghan left her only child in Toronto with her close friend Jessica Mulroney.

Mulroney's three children served as page boys and a flower girl at Meghan and Harry's picture perfect wedding in May 2018.

Meghan, 38, and Harry, 35, plan to return to Toronto to join their son soon.

Prince Harry and Meghan, Duchess of Sussex have launched a new website after announcing their intention to "step back" from the monarchy and denounce their status as "senior royals".

The couple, who married in 2018, announced the shocking news on their Instagram page on Wednesday, Jan 8. In a lengthy statement, they wrote: "After many months of reflection and internal discussions, we have chosen to make a transition this year in starting to carve out a progressive new role within this institution.

"We intend to step back as 'senior' members of the Royal Family and work to become financially independent, while continuing to fully support Her Majesty The Queen. It is with your encouragement, particularly over the last few years, that we feel prepared to make this adjustment."

On their new sussexroyal.com website, designed by a digital agency based in Toronto - the same firm behind Markle's now closed lifestyle blog, The Tig, the couple detailed their "new working model", including a new media relations policy, the future of their charitable work and how they will fund their lifestyles.

According to WENN.com, the couple explained they are banned from earning their own income as royals since they still receive money from the Sovereign Grant – British taxpayers - who pay their six-member security team.

The website explains: "The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are classified as internationally protected people which mandates this level of security."

The website also reiterated that they aim to become financially independent of British taxpayers so they can work "externally" and pay for their own security.

The couple, along with eight-month-old son Archie, will split their time between the U.K. and North America, and will continue to reside in their $2 million Frogmore Cottage, which is owned by the Queen.

Meghan and Harry's announcement that they were stepping back from their royal duties shocked Britain and resulted in a fierce backlash against Meghan, a 38-year-old American actress who married into the royal family against the wishes of British citizens.

Many accuse Meghan of being a narcissist who corrupted Prince Harry so she can return to Toronto to live a lavish celebrity lifestyle.

While Britain's Daily Mail newspaper reported Harry's grandmother Queen Elizabeth II was "furious" upon hearing the "bombshell" news, stars worldwide reacted to the announcement, taking to social media to share their views.

Now that they are free of the monarchy, the couple is expected to be regulars at Hollywood parties hobnobbing with celebrity friends such as Beyonce and Jay-Z.

Sources say Meghan is desperate to capitalize on her celebrity status. She is expected to appear on American talk shows, grace the covers of magazines and even a reality TV show -- all celebrity perks she was deprived of as a "senior member" of the Royal Family.

"We're hiring," wrote The Daily Show's official Twitter page after the news broke on Wednesday.

Andy Cohen, who is an executive producer of the Real Housewives franchise, added: "Open invite for The Duchess to joining #RHOBH (Real Housewives of Beverly Hills)."

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have quit the Royal family. After months of rumors and speculation, Harry has decided to give up his title as a "senior" member of the royal family. In an Instagram post the couple said they plan to "work to become financially independent, while continuing to fully support Her Majesty The Queen."

The decision was made after "many months of reflection and internal discussions," the couple said on their Instagram page.

The Queen of England is reportedly furious, as she did not learn of their decision until she heard the news on television.

Harry lashed out at the British news media last year for their harsh treatment of Meghan. She complained that British publications published false information in the "intrusive and unlawful publication of a private letter written by the Duchess of Sussex", to her estranged father Thomas Markle.

Harry and Meghan will split their time between London, the U.S. and Canada. Harry will likely lose the $2.6 million a year he receives from the Royals. The couple will ask British taxpayers to pick up the $600,000 bill for their security.

Britain's Prince Andrew has stepped back from his Royal duties after a series of damaging revelations about his close friendship with American pedophile Jeffrey Epstein.

Prince Andrew was accused of being a part of Epstein's child sex ring.

Epstein, who was charged with multiple counts of child molestation and human trafficking, hanged himself in a Manhattan jail cell in August.

Prince Andrew's problems began when a photo leaked that showed the Duke of York embracing one of Epstein's young victims. The image was reportedly taken at Epstein's infamous NY townhouse at 9 East 71st Street years ago.

Initially Prince Andrew denied knowing Epstein. Then, after the photo leaked, he claimed the image was Photoshopped and that wasn't his hand around the young lady's waist. But photo experts analyzed the image right down to the pixels - and determined the photo was not Photoshopped.

In a recent interview with the BBC about his friendship with Epstein, Prince Andrew claimed amnesia, saying he didn't recall taking a photo with the young girl.

In the interview, which aired Saturday, Andrew denied having sex with Virginia Giuffre, the girl in the photo.

Giuffre claims she had sex with Andrew three times in 2001 at Epstein's properties.

Prince Andrew announced he was stepping back from public duties for the "foreseeable future."

"It has become clear to me over the last few days that the circumstances relating to my former association with Jeffrey Epstein has become a major disruption to my family's work and the valuable work going on in the many organizations and charities that I am proud to support," Andrew said in a statement. "Therefore, I have asked Her Majesty if I may step back from public duties for the foreseeable future, and she has given her permission."

The American-born royal broke down in an emotional interview with Britain's ITV Network during her and Prince Harry's recent journey to Africa. She discussed the brutal treatment she's received from the British tabloids.

Meghan said her friends warned her not to marry Harry because the British press would ruin her life.

"In all fairness, I had no idea, which probably sounds difficult to understand, but when I first met Harry, my friends were so excited, my U.S. friends were happy because I was happy," Meghan said.

"My British friends, they were sure he was lovely, but they said I shouldn't do it because 'the British tabloids will destroy your life'. Because I'm American I very naively didn't get it. It's complicated."

But Candace Owens was unsympathetic toward Meghan. She took to social media to lash out at the 38-year-old first-time-mom.

"Using African children as a backdrop to complain about your over-privileged life is offensive," she tweeted.

She also directed her anger at Prince Harry, 35.

"Invoking your own mother's tragic death to demand the press stop calling out your hypocritical wife is downright disgusting.

Meghan Markle is a witch.
Harry is under your spell."

Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex, was advised not to marry Prince Harry before tying the knot in a fairy tale wedding in England last year.

WENN.com reports the 38-year-old former Suits actress opened up about life as the wife of a British prince in a new documentary for ITV, Harry & Meghan: An African Journey, which aired on Sunday night, Oct. 20, in the U.K..

In the documentary, Meghan broke down when discussing the brutal treatment she received from the British tabloids and some Brits.

Prince Harry still blames the British media for killing his mother, Princess Diana. She died in a horrific car crash when the limo she was riding in was pursued by paparazzi on motorcycles.

Meghan was introduced to Harry by a mutual friend, tennis superstar Serena Williams.

After a 2-year, long distance courtship, Harry popped the question.

But Meghan admitted several of her close British pals warned her not to marry the prince, telling her "you shouldn't do it because the British tabloids will destroy your life".

"My British friends, they were sure he was lovely, but they said I shouldn't do it because 'the British tabloids will destroy your life'. Because I'm American I very naively didn't get it. It's complicated."

"In all fairness, I had no idea, which probably sounds difficult to understand, but when I first met Harry, my friends were so excited, my U.S. friends were happy because I was happy," Meghan said.

Meghan's life became even more complicated when she gave birth to son Archie, her and Harry's first child, in May.

She said she struggles as a new mom being in the media spotlight. Meghan hinted that she is suffering from postpartum depression.

"Look, any woman especially when they are pregnant you're really vulnerable and so that was made really challenging, and then when you have a newborn – you know... And especially as a woman, it's a lot."

"Also thank you for asking, because not many people have asked if I'm OK," she said, fighting back tears. "But it's a very real thing to be going through behind the scenes."

When asked if she was "struggling," a visibly upset Meghan replied: "Yes," according to London's Daily Mail.

Meghan Markle is feeling vulnerable, sad and lonely as an outsider in UK's royal family. The American-born Duchess of Sussex opened up about her vulnerabilities in an emotional interview with Britain's ITV Network.

Meghan said she struggles as a new mom being in the media spotlight. Her friends have all but abandoned her as they focus on their own families, their exciting jobs and social interests.

Many women envy the Duchess, who is married to England's charming Prince Harry, a 35-year-old Virgo, who is very protective of his wife.

Meghan, a 38-year-old Leo, recently gave birth to the couple's first child, Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor, 5 months.

But underneath her happy exterior lies a woman who is broken, sad and desperately lonely.

When asked how being in the public eye has had an impact on her psychologically, Meghan hinted that she is suffering from postpartum depression.

"Look, any woman especially when they are pregnant you're really vulnerable and so that was made really challenging, and then when you have a newborn – you know... And especially as a woman, it's a lot."

"Also thank you for asking, because not many people have asked if I'm OK," she said, fighting back tears. "But it's a very real thing to be going through behind the scenes."

When asked if she was "struggling," a visibly upset Meghan replied: "Yes," according to London's Daily Mail.

Meghan met Prince Harry through a mutual friend (tennis champ Serena Williams) at a party in London. The couple carried on a long distance love affair (she was in Canada working on the U.S. TV show, Suits).

After a 2 year whirlwind courtship, Harry popped the question and Meghan happily accepted. Their star-studded wedding was held on May 19, 2018 in St George's Chapel at Windsor Castle in London.

But a year later, reality has set in like an arctic blast of cold air.

Harry and Meghan are targets of the same British press that hounded Harry's mom, Princess Diana.

Harry recently filed a lawsuit against a British media outlet for hacking his cell phone. And Meghan is suing a newspaper for publishing a private letter sent by her estranged father.

Friends say Meghan would be happier if she and Harry packed up their son and moved to Canada or Africa.

The couple recently returned from a 10-day tour of Africa during which the prince emotionally retraced his mother's footsteps in an old Angola minefield 22 years after her death.

The site has been converted into a residential road, affectionately known among locals as Princess Diana Street.

The ITV exclusive interview airs on Sunday at 9 p.m. local time.

Officials at Britain's the Mail On Sunday newspaper vowed to "vigorously defend" themselves against Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's lawsuit.

On Tuesday, Prince Harry released a rare statement, revealing he and Meghan have filed a lawsuit against the Mail over misuse of private information, infringement of copyright and breach of the Data Protection Act 2018.

Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, claimed the publication published false information in the "intrusive and unlawful publication of a private letter written by the Duchess of Sussex", to her estranged father Thomas Markle.

The royals claim parts of the letter were edited and redacted, but representatives for the Mail on Sunday insist they stand by the initial story, and intend to fight the lawsuit.

In a lengthy statement on his personal website, Prince Harry wrote,

"Unfortunately, my wife has become one of the latest victims of a British tabloid press that wages campaigns against individuals with no thought to the consequences – a ruthless campaign that has escalated over the past year, throughout her pregnancy and while raising our newborn son."

He added:

"My deepest fear is history repeating itself. I've seen what happens when someone I love is commoditised to the point that they are no longer treated or seen as a real person. I lost my mother and now I watch my wife falling victim to the same powerful forces."

In an editorial for the Daily Mail Online, Piers Morgan said Harry is "playing the victim card."

"Oh please. Give me a bloody break, your royal highness!" Morgan said.

"The old Prince Harry, the courageous soldier and fun-loving party boy, would never have spewed such sanctimonious guff," Morgan wrote.

Morgan added that Harry has been "Meghan-ed" by his wife, who is pulling his strings.

"Sadly, he's been Meghan-ed and that means when he's not pontificating piously about progressive woke issues, he's playing the victim card."

Meanwhile, Prince Harry and Meghan visited the Tembisa Township to learn about Youth Employment Services during their royal tour of South Africa in Johannesburg on Wednesday, October 2.

Royal watchers were delighted to see the Duchess wearing another of her favorite oversized shirt dresses.

In an unprecedented rebuke of the British media by a royal, Prince Harry launched an emotional attack against the British press, saying he fears his wife Meghan Markle is falling victim to the same powerful forces that did in his mother, Princess Diana.

In a now infamous video clip, Princess Diana is seen running from a pack of British paparazzi. One of them caught up to her and rudely shoved her because she didn't want her photo taken outside the apartment of her lover, Dr Hasnat Khan.

The paparazzi assaulted the Princess of Wales in full view of cameras because she cheated on the future king of England, Prince Charles.

Queen Elizabeth, pictured with Diana in 1987, removed Diana's security detail and snatched away her sons, Prince William and Prince Harry.

Princess Diana was thrown to the wolves, bullied by the British press, and treated like a commoner until the day she died.

Prince Harry does not want the same to happen to his wife.

In a lengthy personal statement on his and Meghan's official website, Harry said his "deepest fear" was his "wife falling victim to the same powerful forces" that his mother faced before she died in a tragic car accident while being pursued by the paparazzi in 1997.

"Unfortunately, my wife has become one of the latest victims of a British tabloid press that wages campaigns against individuals with no thought to the consequences – a ruthless campaign that has escalated over the past year, throughout her pregnancy and while raising our newborn son," Harry wrote.

"There is a human cost to this relentless propaganda, specifically when it is knowingly false and malicious, and though we have continued to put on a brave face – as so many of you can relate to – I cannot begin to describe how painful it has been.

"Because in today's digital age, press fabrications are repurposed as truth across the globe. One day's coverage is no longer tomorrow's chip-paper."

Prince Harry, pictured with his mom on May 7, 1995, wrote:

"My deepest fear is history repeating itself. I've seen what happens when someone I love is commoditised to the point that they are no longer treated or seen as a real person. I lost my mother and now I watch my wife falling victim to the same powerful forces."

Harry and Meghan announced they are suing The Mail On Sunday newspaper for publishing a letter to Meghan's estranged father Thomas Markle.

Meghan has retained a powerful law firm and is paying the legal fees out of her and Harry's personal coffers.

She is suing for misuse of private information, infringement of copyright and breach of the Data Protection Act 2018.

If she wins her case, the proceeds will be donated to an anti-bullying charity.

The Duchess of Sussex joked with Thandeka that little Archie will have to get used to having cameras in his face.

Baby Archie was dressed fashionably in blue striped dungarees and matching booties.

Archbishop Tutu won the Nobel Peace Prize for his anti-apartheid fight. He became the leader of the liberation struggle during Nelson Mandela's long imprisonment.
