Prince Harry and his American wife, Meghan Markle, were booed as they left the National Service of Thanksgiving for The Queen's reign at Saint Paul's Cathedral in London on Friday, June 3.

The Thanksgiving service was part of Queen Elizabeth II's Platinum Jubilee, officially celebrating her 96th birthday and marking her 70th year on the throne as Britain's ruling monarch.

The crowd cheered as the couple arrived at Saint Paul's Cathedral, along with other members of the royal family.

The reaction of the crowd was noticeably different when Harry and Meghan left the church alone.

Prince Harry grit his teeth and waved as a smattering of polite cheers turned into a sea of boos that could be heard over the loud ringing of the church bells (watch the video below).

The former actress wore a cream monochrome outfit with matching hat, closed-toe pumps, and gloves. Prince Harry wore a traditional long sports coat and gray slacks. The Platinum Jubilee events continue in London through June 5.

Kim Kardashian and Pete Davidson were snubbed by Buckingham Palace after they flew all the way to London to attend Queen Elizabeth II's 2022 Platinum Jubilee.

Buckingham Palace has a strict guest list policy that prohibits outsiders and attention-seekers from attending the Platinum Jubilee festivities.

BACKGRID

Palace officials flatly rejected Kim's pleas for invites to the Platinum Jubilee official party after she and Pete flew across the pond to attend the festivities.

BACKGRID

Reps for Kim, 41, and Pete, 28, reportedly asked Buckingham Palace for invitations to the Platinum Party on Saturday. But officials turned the American couple down.

A source said Kim and Pete apparently believed they could snag invitations through other means, like they do in America.

BACKGRID

A platinum jubilee is a celebration to commemorate a monarch's 70th anniversary. Queen Elizabeth II is the most recent monarch to celebrate a platinum jubilee.

The Platinum Jubilee is a very big deal in Great Britain and it is the hottest ticket in town.

Kim was so desperate to attend the Platinum Jubilee party that a source told the Daily Mail she didn't even mind if the tickets were "not VIP".

"Kim rarely gets turned down to attend any event," a source said. "So this has been quite surprising, especially as she doesn't visit the UK often. Kim and Pete love the Royal Family and really wanted to be a part of this special celebration."

Kim and Pete may be superstars in America, but they are commoners over in England.

Donald Trump is not a fan of England's Duke of Sussex and his wife Meghan Markle. The former U.S. president urged Queen Elizabeth II to strip Harry and Meghan Markle of all their royal titles for disrespecting the throne.

Trump described the Duke of Sussex as being "whipped like no person I think I've ever seen" (except for Will Smith). He added that Meghan was leading Harry "around by his nose".

Chip Somodevilla/Getty Images

Trump told British journalist Piers Morgan: "Harry is whipped - do you know the expression, whipped? I won't use the full expression. But Harry is whipped like no person I think I've ever seen. I'm not a fan of Meghan, I'm not a fan, and I wasn't right from the beginning. I think poor Harry is being led around by his nose.

Trump's comments comes after Harry and Meghan stopped off in England to visit the Queen before attending his Invictus Games in the Netherlands. It was their first public appearance together in England since they denounced their duties and fled to Canada then America in search of fame.

America has not welcomed Harry and Megan with open arms. Their Netflix content has been described as "boring" and the public has shown little interest in their Spotify podcast.

Britains are still outraged that Harry did not attend his grandfather Prince Philip's memorial service last month. Prince Philip died of natural causes on April 9, 2021 at age 99.

Prince William, Duke of Cambridge and his wife Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge received a warm welcome from Bahamian dignitaries when they stepped off their private plane in Nassau.

The Royal couple greeted nurses and doctors who were on the frontlines of the response to the pandemic. Kate heard about their experiences on the frontlines and thanked them for their incredible work in helping to keep local communities safe.

Kate stared in wonderment at Bahamian girls who wear their own natural hair. The girls wore t-shirts emblazoned with the hashtag #WorldReady, the international award that inspires young people around the world to develop their imaginations and overcome challenges.

Kate received many gifts during her visit, including this colourful hat presented by an adorable Bahamian girl.

Only one protester stood out among the crowd of merrymakers at Junkanoo in the Bahamas. The masked woman held up a sign demanding "reparations", "indigenous capacity", and "fair trade" for Bahamians.

It was a different scene from the angry crowd of protesters who greeted the royal couple in Jamaica. Some Jamaican protesters wore shackles and held up signs demanding reparations. While others wore t-shirts with the words "Seh Yuh Sorry!" and "Apologize now!"

The Bahamas and Jamaica are considering removing Queen Elizabeth II as Head of State like Barbados did in November.

The Queen sent Kate and William to the Caribbean in the hopes of discouraging some countries from cutting ties with her.

Queen Elizabeth II held virtual meetings with the ambassadors of Chad and Andorra after recovering from COVID.

The British monarch held meetings via videolink from Windsor Castle more than a week after testing positive for the coronavirus. The Queen, who is triple vaccinated, experienced mild flu-like symptoms.

She spoke with Chad's ambassador to the United Kingdom, Kedella Younous Hamidi, and the Ambassador of Andorra, Carles Jordana Madero, at Buckingham Palace on Tuesday.

Even though she was on a monitor, the ambassadors still maintained a 6-foot distance from the screen in accordance with Britain's COVID restrictions.

In February, Instagram blogger Jason Lee reported the Queen was dead after he received a tip from a random person on social media.

Despite the Queen's appearance today, American conspiracy theorists still insist Her Majesty has a "body double".

If nothing else, Americans are persistent.

Blogger Jason Lee has apologized for reporting that England's Queen Elizabeth II was dead.

Lee, who runs Hollywood Unlocked Instagram blog, published an apology after deleting his posts about the Queen.

"Although I've never been wrong when breaking a story, because this involves The Queen, this is one time I would want to be. And based on Wednesday's report from the Palace, I can say my sources got this wrong and I sincerely apologize to The Queen and the Royal Family."

Lee apologized after Buckingham Palace announced the Queen, 95, had spoken with Britain's Prime Minister Boris Johnson in a weekly phone call on Wednesday, Feb. 23.

After becoming the laughing stock of Instagram, Lee doubled down, insisting he trusted his source.

However, Lee's "source" turned out to be a fan of the late Mark Lanegan, a member of Queens of Stone Age grunge band, who died on Feb. 22, at age 57. No cause of death was announced.

Lanagan's death was announced on social media, an hour before Lee posted his click-bait post about the British Monarch.

Lee claimed his "trusted source" told him the Queen had died after she failed to show up at a wedding. However, the Queen was not on the guest list and she did not know the bride or groom.

The triple vaccinated Queen tested positive for COVID, and was experiencing mild flu-like symptoms. She canceled virtual meetings while recovering at Windsor Castle.

Britain's Prince Andrew has settled a sex abuse lawsuit with an American woman who claimed he raped her when she was a teenager.

Virginia Giuffre, formerly Virginia Roberts, 38, accused Andrew of raping her when she was 17. She claims she was sex trafficked to Andrew by the late financier Jeffrey Epstein.

In addition to a reported $10 million out-of-court settlement, Andrew, 61, will also make a substantial donation to Giuffre's charity in support of victims' rights.

In a now infamous photo (above), a smiling Giuffre is seen with Andrew and Epstein's former girlfriend, Ghislaine Maxwell, after they flew to London to hook up with Andrew in 2001.

Maxwell, 60, was recently convicted of sex trafficking minors for Epstein and his well-heeled friends, including celebrities, politicians, and corporate billionaires. Epstein took his own life in a Manhattan jail cell on August 10, 2019.

Embarrassed members of the Royal family urged Andrew to settle with his accuser, who filed the suit in a New York court in August.

Queen Elizabeth II reportedly ordered her middle son to settle the case before her Platinum Jubilee celebrations later this year.

The Queen will foot part of the bill, according to DailyMail.com. The news comes after Andrew vowed to fight Giuffre's allegations at a public trial.

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.

Prince Philip, the husband of Britain's Queen Elizabeth II, has passed away at age 99.

The news was announced by Buckingham Palace on Twitter on Friday, April 9.

"It is with deep sorrow that Her Majesty The Queen has announced the death of her beloved husband, His Royal Highness The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh," the tweet read. "His Royal Highness passed away peacefully this morning at Windsor Castle."

Many in England are wondering if Harry Windsor and Meghan Markle will attend the prince's funeral.

Harry was "advised to fly home right now to day goodbye to his grandfather," a source told The Royal Observer.

Meghan will likely remain in California until their baby is born.

The couple bad-mouthed the Royal family in a recent tell-all interview with Oprah Winfrey.

WENN

The news comes after Prince Philip spent 28 nights in a hospital, after being treated for a serious infection and undergoing heart surgery in March.

The Duke retired from royal duties in 2017. In January, Philip was involved in a car crash after he pulled out onto the main road near the Queen’s Sandringham Estate in Norfolk, England.

The royal was uninjured in the crash but two people in the other car were hospitalized.

Born in Greece, Prince Philip joined the navy in 1939 and fought in World War II. During the war, he corresponded with the then-teenage Princess Elizabeth, and they announced their engagement in 1947.

After the couple's wedding in November of that year, he was named Duke of Edinburgh and left the military after his wife's accession to the throne in 1952. He officially became a British Prince in 1957.

Meghan Markle and Harry Windsor sat down with American media mogul Oprah Winfrey for a tell-all discussion about the royals, race, victimization, depression and thoughts of suicide.

Megan, who is 39 and pregnant with her second child, claimed the royals were concerned that her firstborn baby's skin would be too dark to be a prince.

Meghan was "angry" that Queen Elizabeth II didn't break 100 years of convention to make her son, Archie, a prince instead of a lord.

The "Suits" actress claimed inaccurately that the "prince" title was her son's "birthright".

She alleged that this happened "in tandem [with] concerns and conversations about how dark his skin might be when he's born."

In reality, Archie, the Queen's great-grandson, is not entitled to be named a prince. The children of the Queen's daughter Princess Anne and her first husband Captain Mark Phillips also do not have titles, and nor does the newborn son of the Queen's granddaughter Princess Eugenie.

When Oprah pressed Harry on exactly who discussed her unborn son's skin color, he refused to answer.

"That conversation I'm never going to share," he said. "At the time, it was awkward. I was a little bit shocked."

Meghan also revealed that she contemplated taking her own life when things didn't go as she planned. "I didn't want to be alive anymore," she told Oprah, who was paid $9 million to conduct the interview for CBS.

It isn't clear how much Meghan and Harry were paid for their interview. Since being cut off financially by the royal family, the Duke and Duchess of Windsor have been supported by Netflix, Spotify, and the generosity of their wealthy American friends.

The following are more quotes from Meghan and Harry’s in-depth interview with Oprah:

Harry on the gender of their unborn baby: "It's a girl. To have a boy and then a girl, you know, what more can you ask for?"

Megan on their secret wedding: "Three days before our wedding, we got married. No one knows that."

Harry on his mother Diana: "My biggest concern was history repeating itself. She would be very angry how this panned out."

Harry on the Queen: "I've never blindsided my grandmother. I have too much respect for her.

Meghan on her relationship with the Queen: "The Queen has always been wonderful to me. I just really loved being in her company."

Harry on being cut off by his father: "I had two conversations with my father before he stopped taking my calls." Harry said his father asked him to put their plans in writing. "We didn't have a plan. That was suggested by somebody else by the point of where my family literally cut me off financially, and I had to afford security for us."

Harry on his brother Prince William and father Charles: "They are trapped within the system, like the rest of my family are. My father and my brother, they are trapped. They don't get to leave. And I have huge compassion for that.”
 

If Meghan thought this tell-all interview would finally bring her the admiration and respect that she craves from Americans, she is sadly mistaken.

As one viewer wrote in an online forum: "If Meghan thought this 'interview' would make us more sympathetic to her and like her more -- it didn't."

British journalist Piers Morgan ripped Meghan for the disgraceful way she portrayed the royals.

And American reality TV star Bethenny Frankel called Meghan "a fairly unknown actress" who is earning "hundreds of millions" of dollars for her short stint as a senior royal.

"Cry me a river," Frankel tweeted to her 1.5 million followers.

"The plight of being a game show host, fairly unknown actress, to suffering in a palace, w tiaras & 7 figure weddings for TWO WHOLE YEARS to being a household name w @Oprah on speed dial, fetching 7 [million] for interviews, hundreds of millions in media deals."

Others said Meghan selfishly married into the Royal Family, knowing what her duties would be. But being in servitude to others for the rest of her life was not in the cards for a narcissist.

Half of Britain don't want to watch Oprah Winfrey's interview with Henry Mountbatten-Windsor, formerly Prince Harry, and his American wife Meghan Markle.

More than half of all Brits polled by The Sun newspaper say they'd rather change the channel than watch Oprah's upcoming interview with the ungrateful pair.

The Duke and Duchess of Windsor agreed to a sit-down interview with the American talk show boss before they quit the Royal Family for good earlier this month.

Just 27 percent of Brits surveyed by The Sun said they would watch Oprah's sit-down with Harry and Meghan.

Queen Elizabeth II (left) responded by stripping them of their remaining royal duties and redistributing the duties among family members who know their roles as humble servants to their British subjects.

Buckingham Palace released a statement Friday on behalf of The Queen, who said, "in stepping away from the work of The Royal Family it is not possible to continue with the responsibilities and duties that come with a life of public service."

The Queen previously ordered Meghan's name removed from her grandchild, Archie's birth certificate, as all grandchild heirs to the throne are in the sole custody of the Queen -- including Harry and Meghan's unborn child.

Harry's brother Prince William -- second to the throne -- is said to be "sad and shocked" by his brother's rude behavior to their grandmother, Her Royal Highness the Queen.

According to The Times, sources close to Prince William (far left) claim he is "very upset" by Harry and Meghan's "insulting and disrespectful" reply to Queen Elizabeth II.

In a subtle jab, Harry and Meghan responded to the Queen: "We can all live a life of service. Service is universal."

While service may be universal, no one talks back to the Queen.

"You don't answer the Queen back," said a royal source, "it's just not done."

Another source close to the family called the reply "petulant and insulting to the Queen," adding, "Don't disrespect your granny, Harry."

Henry Mountbatten-Windsor, Duke of Sussex, and his American wife Meghan Markle, Duchess of Sussex, have officially quit the royal family, leaving behind a life of service to their British subjects.

Meghan had a parting shot for England's Queen Elizabeth II who stripped them of their remaining service roles after they announced their second child will be born American.

The news comes just months after the mom-to-be opened up about her heartbreaking miscarriage in July 2020.

Max Mumby/Indigo/Getty Images

Her Majesty the Queen said she was "saddened by their decision" to abandon their life of public service, and she wished "the Sussexes" a happy new life in America.

Meghan shot back at the Queen with a subtle dig: "We can all live a life of service. Service is universal," she wrote in a statement.

As you know, Harry and Meghan abandoned their royal duties in 2019. Born and raised in Los Angeles, Meghan became engaged to Harry in 2017 and they wed in 2018. Their son, Archie Mountbatten-Windsor, was born the following year.

Chris Jackson/Getty Images

On January 8, 2020, the couple announced their intentions to step away from public service. They moved to Canada and then to America to pursue celebrity stardom in movies and television -- roles which have eluded them since Americans don't much care for royals.

On Valentine's Day, Harry, 36, and Meghan, 39, announced they are expecting their second baby born on American soil.

John Rainford/WENN

In a rare statement this week, the Queen confirmed Harry and Meghan's eight military roles and patronages were revoked and redistributed to "working members of the royal family" who know their roles as humble public servants.

After living rent-free in Tyler Perry's West Coast mansion, the former royals purchased their own home in California.

The final insult to the Royal family will come when Harry applies for American citizenship.

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are in hot water with Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. The Duke and Duchess neglected to tell Buckingham Palace about their $150 million Netflix deal to develop upcoming projects on the American streaming network.

Harry, 35, and Meghan, 39, recently purchased a $14 million Santa Barbara mansion. They signed a $150 million deal with Netflix to help pay their household expenses.

The Duke and Duchess, who have never produced a television show, will develop documentaries, films, scripted and kids' programming for Netflix.

Chris Jackson - Pool/Getty Images

According to London's The Sun newspaper, a source said "Harry did not inform the Queen about the Netflix deal."

This is significant because Harry and Meghan are still relying on future King of England, Prince Charles, for their living expenses.

The couple has lived off Harry's father - and the kindness of others - ever since they quit royal life to become celebrities in America last year.

WENN/Avalon

So far, stardom has eluded them in America. A book about the Royal couple went directly into the sales bin at stores.

Palace officials plan to study the Netflix deal to determine whether Harry and Meghan will be cut off financially.

WENN/Avalon

The Queen is quite strict about Royals signing lucrative deals without her permission.

"Her view is simple, the Royals are not for sale and danger surrounds high profile roles outside of the institution itself," said the source.

The source added that Harry and Meghan knew any profit-making deals were "subject to discussion" by the palace.

The fact that they signed a deal without palace approval likely means they are affirming their independence from the Royal family.
