'AXE TO GRIND'

Meghan Markle news – Duchess’ ‘secrets exposed’ in ex-husband Trevor Engelson explosive new ‘tell all’ book about her

- When will Prince Harry’s book be released?
- Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's net worth explained

MEGHAN Markle's ex-husband could tell his "remarkable story" in a forthcoming tell-all book, a royal expert has claimed.  

Royal author Tom Bower's new biography is reportedly going to include interviews with Trevor Engelson, the Duchess' ex-husband. 

And expert Neil Sean said "a lot of people" could have "an axe to grind" to tell their side of the story.

Speaking about the Duchess' former husband on his YouTube channel Mr Sean said: As he [Tom Bower] said, you know, a lot of people were willing to go on record and speak, many without being paid, we might point out as well.

"This must be terrifying for Meghan Markle, herself because obviously, they've got an axe to grind, some may say, but on the other side of the coin, they definitely want to get their side of the story out".

"This particular individual would truly have a remarkable story because, after all, he would have first-hand experience of what it was like, yes what it was like, to be married the first time around to the actress from Suits."

    Samantha Markle ‘thankful to god’ as father survives massive stroke

    Meghan’s sister, Samantha, has provided an update on her fathers condition following the news that he was rushed to hospital after suffering a stroke. 

    Speaking to GB News, the Duchess’s sister was visibly upset. 

    She said: “He’s doing better. He’s in good spirits and you know it’s still hard for me to talk about because he’s been through so much – the heart attack, a pandemic, a stroke.

    “I don’t think he saw it coming but he’s doing better, he’s in good spirits.

    “I’m just so thankful to God that I called him when I did because he was slurring his speech, he couldn’t talk.

    “I feel like had we not got emergency care right away, it could have been fatal, so I feel really blessed that he’s getting some of his strength back.”

    Ms Markle also commented how long it may take for her father to recover.

    She added: “It’s going to take several, maybe six months, maybe a year to get his speech back.

    “He can work with a speech therapist and it’s good, the speech he had in the speech producing part of the brain wasn’t so big that he can’t recover. But you know when you’re almost 80 years old, there’s less plasticity and things are more difficult.

    “So he has the memory of the words and the associations, the stroke was on the right side of the brain, so the damage was on the left and he’s left handed. But it also impaired his speech and his ability to swallow. 

    “All things considered it’s amazing, he’s in good spirits.

    “We’re not, we’re walking on eggshells and sad and having a tough time but he’s being our trooper.”

  • Will Harry & Meghan bring their children to the Platinum Jubilee?

    The royal children, Archie, three and Lilibet, who is almost one, will travel to the UK with the Duke and Duchess. 

    However, they are unlikely to attend every event. 

    A representative for the royal couple said: “Prince Harry and Meghan, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are excited and honoured to attend The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations this June with their children.”

    On 26 May, 2022, it was revealed that the couple will join the Queen at a thanksgiving service at St Paul’s Cathedral on Friday June 3, 2022.

    The Telegraph reported that their children are unlikely to attend.

  • Kate & William’s relationship wasn’t expected to last, Royal expert says

    A leading biographer has claimed that Kate Middleton and Prince William’s relationship was not expected to last by people within the Royal Family.

    According to royal author Andrew Morton, there was little expectations of the relationship between the royal couple.

    He said: “In the beginning, nobody in the Royal Household expected for a second that the university romance with Catherine and William would continue for any time after they graduated, like most college romances which disintegrate under the intense scrutiny of jobs and geography.”

    Speaking about Kate’s personality, Mr Morton added the Queen “was impressed she adored and loved William for himself, not for his titles.”

  • Platinum Jubilee: What's happening? (3/3)

    Alicia Keys, Nile Rodgers and the Italian tenor Andrea Bocelli are among others lined up for the 2.5-hour musical extravaganza.

    More than 70,000 people have registered to host Big Jubilee Lunches, with 10 million expected to share food and friendship with their neighbours, the government said.

    More than 600 lunches have been planned throughout the Commonwealth and beyond, from Canada to Brazil, New Zealand to Japan and South Africa to Switzerland.

    The final day culminates with the Platinum Jubilee Pageant -- a public parade through central London.

    The Mounted Band of the Household Cavalry lead the Gold State Coach -- used to transport the monarch at coronations and jubilees -- to Buckingham Palace.

    Some 10,000 people are involved in a musical and creative display of how British society has been transformed since the queen acceded in 1952.

    It ends with the singing of the national anthem, "God Save the Queen", outside the palace, led by singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran.

  • Platinum Jubilee: What's happening? (2/3)

    Nine bridges over the River Thames in central London will be lit up, as will the capital's landmark BT Tower, and several English cathedrals.

    A national service of thanksgiving for the queen's record-breaking reign takes place at London's St Paul's Cathedral, featuring a rare ringing of the Great Paul bell.

    Great Paul, cast in 1882, is the largest church bell in the country. Its mechanism broke in the 1970s but it was restored to its former glory last year.

    It has only been sounded eight times since then, and never for a royal occasion.

    A keen horseracing fan, the queen is expected to attend the 243rd running of the country's most prestigious flat-racing event, The Derby, at Epsom Downs.

    In the evening, some 22,000 people -- including 5,000 key workers such as frontline medics -- are expected to attend the BBC Platinum Party at Buckingham Palace.

    Performers include rockers Queen + Adam Lambert, Motown legend Diana Ross and Elton John.

  • Platinum Jubilee: What's happening? (1/3)

    Public celebrations to mark Queen Elizabeth II's record-breaking 70-year reign will take place over four days next week.

    More than 1,200 soldiers from the Household Division of the British Army perform the "Trooping of the Colour" ceremony to officially mark the queen's birthday.

    The military pageant, complete with musicians and horses, combines pomp and tradition dating back more than two centuries.

    The event culminates with the royal family's appearance on the balcony of Buckingham Palace, to wave to crowds and watch a fly-past of military jets.

    Appearances this year are restricted to working royals only, which means no Prince Harry and his wife Meghan, nor Prince Andrew.

    More than 2,800 beacons will be lit at the palace and across the UK, including atop the country's four highest peaks, as well as on the Channel Islands, the Isle of Man, and British Overseas Territories.

    Flaming tributes will be seen in 54 Commonwealth capitals across five continents, from Tonga and Samoa in the South Pacific to Belize in the Caribbean.

  • Royal Family want disgraced Prince Andrew to ‘keep quiet’ during Jubilee, expert claims

    Reports suggest that the entire royal family, bar Her Majesty The Queen, are “united” in keeping Andrew away from Jubilee celebrations. 

    Andrew has reportedly been visiting The Queen everyday in an attempt to make up for his actions, but the rest of the family are not impressed. 

    A royal source told The Mirror: “Andrew is doing all he can to make amends for the shame he brought on his family for being involved in such a scandal.

    “He wants to make it up to the Queen which is why he is doing all he can to see her as much as possible.

    “The rest of the family, apart from Her Majesty, are united in feeling that he should stay out of the limelight and keep quiet having left such a stain on the family.”

  • Work continues for Platinum Jubilee outside Buckingham Palace

    As we fast approach Her Majesty’s Jubilee, work has continued on Buckingham Palace to prepare it for the celebrations. 

    The piece being built was designed by Thomas Heatherwick and is called the “Tree of Trees.”

    He said the centerpiece of the celebration represents “hope, regeneration and optimism”, and also reflects The Queen’s Green Canopy (QGC), which inspired over a million trees to be planted during from October 2021 to March 2022.

    Heatherwick also said the sculpture “acts like a beacon sending one simple, eternal message that trees are the super-heroes of our towns and cities and matter much more to our lives than we realise.”

    The streaming giant apparently plans to release the series at the end of the year to coincide with the publication of Harry’s bombshell memoir.

    Harry vehemently denied claims the couple would shoot a reality TV show in September 2020, and has previously said life in the Royal Family was like being in The Truman Show.

  • Harry & Meg expected to JOIN Queen at St Paul’s Cathedral

    PRINCE Harry and Meghan Markle are expected to join the Queen for a service of thanksgiving at St Paul’s Cathedral next week.

    The Duke and Duchess of Sussex will reportedly attend the Jubilee event alongside other members of the Royal Family on Friday June 3.

    According to the Telegraph the Queen’s participation during the service of thanksgiving is unlikely to be confirmed until the day.

    It is, however, said to be one of the Jubilee events she is particularly keen to attend.

    Palace aides are reportedly working on plans to ensure the monarch, who battles with mobility issues, can easily access the cathedral – as she will be unable to walk up the many steps to its main entrance.

    They are also said to be considering how best she can arrive in comfort and without being photographed if necessary.

    Members of the Royal family are expected to arrive at St Paul’s from 11am.

    The service will include bible readings, anthems, prayers and hymns to express thanks for the Queen’s 70 years on the throne.

  • Residents order council to remove Jubilee bunting because 'it's too noisy'

    Residents in Broadway, Sheerness in Kent have requested the council to take down the celebratory Jubilee bunting.

    Citizens living on the street have complained that the bunting is too 'loud' when it rustles in the wind. 

    The Kent town now won’t be draped in red, white and blue for the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee after bunting installed for the celebrations was removed for being “too noisy”. 

    It means Sheerness looks on course to be crowned among the most miserable places in Britain to mark Her Majesty’s unprecedented 70-year reign. 

    Town council chairman Matt Bromley admitted the plastic Union flag bunting which had been hanging across the High Street and Broadway had been taken down after complaints from neighbours.

    He explained: "We wanted something different this year so we went for a plastic material. But when the wind blew, it made such a racket residents living above the shops complained. 

    "Rather than cause a nuisance, we have taken it down and are intending to donate it to the shops so they can use it to decorate their windows."

  • Prince William looks dapper at Royal garden party

    The Duke looked as good as ever during an event at Buckingham Palace on Wednesday.

    Dressed in a striking top hat, with a sleek grey suit, it was an outfit fit for a prince.

    Kate was also there, dressed in a beautiful blue dress.

    This is just one of many royal events set to take place in the run up to Her Majesty's Platinum Jubilee.

  • Harry & Meg under pressure to film at Frogmore Cottage (2/2)

    The consultant added: “We are getting to a point within the business where Netflix executives are evaluating what content around the royals and the Sussexes is actually ­coming into them.

    “If you are at the network, then you signed them for their unique attraction and selling point given their royal access and insight.

    “Sure, both are creative and Harry has produced some powerful mental health documentaries, but the big-money deals are for big projects.

    “That is why the tens of millions of dollars was potentially laid out, but many at the business are wondering what ­happens if the Sussexes are unable to deliver unique, exclusive and interesting content from the biggest event in recent years for the royals.”
