A Buckingham Palace insider said the Queen didn't like to talk about Harry's decision to follow his wife to America.

"[The Queen] was very hurt and told me, 'I don't know, I don't care, and I don't want to think about it anymore,'" the source revealed.

King Charles reportedly refused to bestow the titles HRH on Harry and Meghan's kids, Archie, 3, and Lilibet, 1. His decision left Harry and Meghan "furious".

The Queen was so hurt that she rejected Harry and Meghan's plea for a photo with her namesake, Lilibet, during the Queen's Jubilee over the summer.

The Queen died at Balmoral Castle in Scotland on Sept. 8 at the age of 96.

American anchorwoman Gayle King said Meghan's efforts to make peace with the Royal Family have been futile.

Gayle - who traveled to London for the Queen's State Funeral - claimed that efforts were made "on both sides" but there was no resolution to the longstanding feud.

Gayle, who was introduced to Meghan through Oprah Winfrey (pictured), said the "turmoil" caused by Meghan bad-mouthing the Royal Family in her infamous interview with Oprah has not been resolved.

"I have no inside information on that, but I will tell you this: It was good to see Harry standing with his family," Gayle said.

Oprah previously said she hoped the Queen's death would unite the Royal Family.

A royal source told Us Weekly that Meghan and Harry will "immediately" return home to Montecito, California to see their children, Archie, 3, and Lilibet, 1.

In addition to being stripped of their coveted HRH titles, Harry was stripped of his military honors and he wasn't allowed to wear his full military uniform to the funeral.

Insiders say tensions linger because Harry and Meghan embarrassed Queen Elizabeth while she was alive.

The British blame Meghan for urging Harry to abandon his royal responsibilities and move to the US.

However, sources tell Newsweek that Harry and Meghan's invitation was a "genuine error" and that only "working members of the royal family" are allowed to attend the reception.

Rihanna was awarded the honor of Barbados National Hero on Tuesday, after the island nation ousted Queen Elizabeth II and declared itself an independent republic.

The pop singer was honored in her birthplace of Bridgetown, Barbados by Prime Minister Mia Mottley who referenced her 2012 song "Diamonds" during the ceremony.

"On behalf of a grateful nation, but an even prouder people, we therefore present to you the designee for national hero for Barbados, Ambassador Robyn Rihanna Fenty," Prime Minister Mia Mottley said.

"May you continue to shine like a diamond and bring honor to your nation."

Queen Elizabeth II's eldest son and heir to the throne, Prince Charles (far right), attended the ceremony, as the Queen was unable to travel due to recent health issues.

He said slavery was an "appalling atrocity which forever stains our history."

Britain played a prominent role in enslaving Africans, many of whom were dropped off on the island nation on the way to North America.

On Tuesday the queen sent a congratulatory message to the country's new president, Sandra Mason (4th from right), who was sworn in at midnight.

"I first visited your beautiful country on the eve of independence in early 1966, and I am very pleased that my son is with you today," the British monarch said. She added that Barbadians had long "held a special place in my heart."

Rihanna, born Robyn Rihanna Fenty, has held the title of Ambassador for Culture and Youth in Barbados since 2018. The island's residents continue to celebrate February 22 as "Rihanna Day."

The 33-year-old singer is semi-retired from music and focuses on growing her billion-dollar makeup and fashion empire.

Britain's Prince Charles has tested positive for the novel coronavirus that causes severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS). The Prince of Wales is pictured with his youngest son, Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex, 35.

Clarence House confirmed the news in a statement on Wednesday. The 71-year-old royal was said to be displaying "mild symptoms" but is otherwise in "good health".

"The Prince of Wales has tested positive for coronavirus," the statement read. "He has been displaying mild symptoms but otherwise remains in good health and has been working from home throughout the last few days as usual."

Charles' wife Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall, was also tested but does not currently have the virus, the statement confirmed.

The couple is now "self-isolating at home in Scotland".

"The tests were carried out by the NHS in Aberdeenshire where they met the criteria required for testing," the statement continued. "It is not possible to ascertain from whom the Prince caught the virus owing to the high number of engagements he carried out in his public role during recent weeks."

Prince Charles is the latest high profile name to test positive for Covid-19, following Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson, Idris Elba, Kevin Durant and Harvey Weinstein. All have recovered or are in the process of recovering from the virus that causes mild flu-like symptoms in most healthy adults.

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.

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."

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 married her Prince Charming, Prince Harry of Windsor, during an understated yet elegant ceremony at Windsor Castle in England. Meghan and Harry's wedding was the most viewed BBC television event of the year. Over 30 million Americans tuned in across the pond, attracting a larger American television audience than Harry's parents, Prince Charles and Princess Diana's wedding in 1981.
