Prince Harry and Meghan Markle tell team to nix ANY work that pokes fun at the Queen or royal family, insider claims

PRINCE Harry has reportedly banned his and Meghan Markle’s new team for taking on any future projects that “mock” or “make fun of” the Queen or the royal family. 

According to the DailyMail, the Duke of Sussex, 35, has told their agent, Nick Collins of The Gersh Agency, that the couple will not do anything that is “detrimental to the Queen.”

Nick worked with Meghan during her days in Hollywood and is handling all film, TV and philanthropic ventures that come their way. 

Meghan’s first project after stepping back as senior royals is narrating the new Disney documentary Elephant, which airs tomorrow on Disney+.

It comes after Prince Harry was filmed revealing Meghan’s interest in being involved in a project to Disney chief Bob Iger at last July's London premiere of the Lion King, while the couple were still royals.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex now aim to become financially independent, and experts have predicted they could Meghan alone will easily be earning a quarter of a billion dollars each year for the foreseeable future.

Speaking to MailOnline, Top PR guru Max Markson said: "They can write their own pay cheque because they are Harry and Meghan. The world is literally their oyster".

However, Harry has insisted that the couple will not play off any connection to the royal family, even if the price tag is huge. 

Sources said he doesn’t want to spark further “bad blood” by using his royal links for money. 

The source said: “Offers have come flooding in to Collins for Harry and Meghan. They are worth tens of millions of dollars and some offers are absolutely in their wheelhouse of charity ideas, however some are straight up advertising and marketing promotions and commercials.

“However, Harry has instructed his and Meghan's team to nix anything that in any way could be negative towards the royals. Essentially anything that is negative to the Queen, Prince Charles, his brother or the throne is off limits.

“It shows that even though he has stepped away from royal life, he does not want to upset his grandmother or father.”

It has been claimed that Nick has received offers from everyone from banks to liquor firms to sporting companies and entertainment firms. 

Nick has maintained a friendship with Meghan, after representing her during her time on hit legal TV show Suits, and he also attended their 2018 royal wedding. 

The Gersh Agency, where Nick started as an assistant in 2005 and later worked up to a partner in 2015 and Co-Head of Talent three years ago, has worked with the likes of Kristen Stewart, Adam Driver, Tobey Maguire and Jamie Foxx. 

It was announced that Harry is working with Oprah Winfrey on a TV documentary, which is said to be scheduled for later this year. 

This follows the couple attending an exclusive JPMorgan event in Miami in February, where Harry gave a speech.

We shared how Meghan Markle ‘always wanted full-on Hollywood lifestyle and will be excited to show off Prince Harry’ pal says.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's Lifestyle Will Change Now That They Are No Longer Senior Royals

In just three months, Prince Harry and Meghan, Duchess of Sussex’s lives have changed drastically. The couple decided that after braving the British press and public for years, they wanted a more peaceful and private life away from the constant scrutiny. Therefore in January 2020, they announced Megxit, setting the stage to step down as senior working members of the British royal family.

Though the pair finished up their final royal engagements in early March 2020, there have only been whispers about what they will do next. The pair have spoken openly about their desire to become financially independent, and various companies have expressed their interest in working with the Sussexes, but that is going to take some time.

Currently, the duo is in self-quarantine with their young son, Archie Harrison in Los Angeles, California. However, their lifestyle is about to become drastically different.

Prince Charles is supporting Prince Harry and Meghan Markle

From sheer star power alone, Prince Harry and Meghan will be able to garner major payments for their various work and projects. However, they do need to be strategic about which projects they want to take on, as to not embarrass the British royal family.

Until they can truly become finically independent, especially considering their massive security bill, Prince Charles has stepped in for financial assistance. “It is agreed that The Duke and Duchess of Sussex will continue to require effective security to protect them and their son,” their site read. And following their recent move to California, a spokeswoman for the couple stated, “Privately funded security arrangements have been made.” 

“Prince Charles will still continue to offer private financial support to Meghan, Harry, and Archie,” BAZAAR.com’s Royal Editor At Large, Omid Scobie, reported on Twitter. The pair also have a $30 million net worth together, and they reportedly cashed a lucrative $1 million check back in February, for a speech and appearance at a JP Morgan event in Miami.

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are interested in an $18 million mansion in Malibu

The Sussexes compound is just temporary. The pair are eyeing a 10-bedroom Malibu mansion as their permanent American residence. The mansion, called Petra Manor is a 12,249-sq ft mansion in Malibu’s Serra Retreat community.

According to estate agent Tracy Tutor, the home is a European-style mansion in a secure gated community with 10 bedrooms and eight bathrooms. It also includes a swimming pool and cabana, jacuzzi, outdoor entertainment spaces, a state-of-the-art kitchen, tennis courts, a wine cellar, a tasting room, a theatre room, and a large dance studio.

“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. We now plan to balance our time between the United Kingdom and North America, continuing to honour our duty to The Queen, the Commonwealth, and our patronages. This geographic balance will enable us to raise our son with an appreciation for the royal tradition into which he was born, while also providing our family with the space to focus on the next chapter, including the launch of our new charitable entity. We look forward to sharing the full details of this exciting next step in due course, as we continue to collaborate with Her Majesty The Queen, The Prince of Wales, The Duke of Cambridge and all relevant parties. Until then, please accept our deepest thanks for your continued support.” – The Duke and Duchess of Sussex For more information, please visit sussexroyal.com (link in bio) Image © PA

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will need millions to maintain their lifestyle

From their potential new home, security, and lavish wardrobes, the Sussexes will need millions in order to keep their current lifestyle. It is thought that they will emulate their good friends, former President Barack Obama and Michelle Obama.

“The Obamas are a great model for how to make money and keep it classy. They could find projects that are moving and sometimes Meghan could be in them. If it’s a documentary, maybe Harry could narrate it,” said veteran Hollywood public relations strategist Howard Bragman.

The duchess has already narrated a film, Disneynature’s Elephant. More projects like this will continue that will certainly put money in their pockets. “The Duke and Duchess of Sussex will spend the next few months focusing on their family and continuing to do what they can, safely and privately, to support and work with their pre-existing charitable commitments while developing their future nonprofit organization,” the couple’s team said in Monday’s statement.

Meghan Markle Gave Prince Harry Ultimatum About Exit: 'She Forced Him to Choose' After She 'Misjudged' Royal Life, Claims Expert

Prince Harry and Meghan, Duchess of Sussex are moving on to their next chapter, one that involves living a life outside of the spotlight and away from the constant media scrutiny. While many royal experts have disputed who pushed for the move, one expert believes that Meghan wasn’t prepared for the royal life and gave Prince Harry an ultimatum about leaving.

Prince Harry explained they had no other options

After the Sussexes announced their plan to step back from their royal duties, Queen Elizabeth finalized the details of their exit. They accepted the terms, which included giving up their HRH titles and use of the Sussex Royal name, as well as any public funding.

Prince Harry later discussed the reasons behind their decision to leave the royal family. During a speech he delivered at a dinner for supporters of Sentebale, he shared: “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.”

Meghan wasn’t prepared for royal life

In a piece for the Daily Mail, royal editor Rebecca English revealed how, according to one source, Meghan “misjudged” what life in the royal family would be like.

“One source close to Meghan told me that people needed to understand that marrying into the royal family hadn’t been easy for her,” English wrote.

“She grossly misjudged how culturally different the UK is from America. And then you add to that the protocol,” the source told English. “To be fair, she didn’t really have any girlfriends to say to her ‘if you don’t wear a hat when you are with the Queen, you are going to mess this up.’”

English added, “She didn’t understand how bad it was to getsomething as ­simple as that so wrong.”

“Harry didn’t know how to handle the situation. He would often go in to see his private secretary, Samantha Cohen, begging her to help. It was a bit of a mess,” the insider added.

Meghan reportedly gave Harry an ultimatum

It’s believed that the stress of royal life was overwhelming for Meghan, as English noted, “Another senior royal source told me Meghan had issued her husband with a stark ultimatum: Archie and me are your family.”

“Harry had been hopeful of finding a way to marry his desire for more freedom with his royal heritage, but Meghan convinced him there was no other option, she forced him to choose,” the source shared. “He has spent three months convincing himself he has done the right thing.”

Prince Harry reportedly emailed the queen and his father

When Prince Harry and Meghan first made their announcement, many royal watchers wondered whether they had consulted with the queen before sharing their plan with the world. English noted that when the Sussexes took their six-week break from royal duties, “unknown to anyone, the couple had in fact been ‘plotting’ a life outside of Britain.”

They reportedly “assembled a team of US advisers and managers” and before they returned to the UK, “in early January, Harry contacted his grandmother and father by email to tell them he and Meghan wanted out,” English explained.

She added, “Both the Queen and Charles urged him not to rush into anything” because, a family source told her, there were “complicated” details to sort out. Prince Harry, the source shared, “thought his family were stonewalling and decided to push the nuclear button.”

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle Have Officially Turned Off Their Instagram Comments — Might Not Come Back

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have been fighting a fierce battle with the press and the public since the two started dating back in 2016. And now that they’ve left the family, things have not become any easier. This is because critics have taken to the couple’s social media page to bash anything and everything they can. And it’s finally driven the two to turn off their Instagram comments altogether.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have had a tough time with the public

Ever since Harry and Meghan started dating, thing haven’tgone as well for the soon-to-be ex royals as they’d hoped. Meghan, primarily,was at the center of a media storm. The press practically refused to writeanything positive about her, which made it very difficult for her to develop arelationship with the public.

In a shocking documentary that was released late last year, Meghan revealed that she’s been struggling greatly with the impact that becoming a royal has had on her quality of life. And finally, in January 2020, Harry and Meghan decided to permanently leave the royal family.

Critics have written unpleasant words about the couple on Instagram

Ever since the couple’s announcement, their Instagram commentssection has taken the brunt of thepublic’s distaste for the couple’s departure. Countless comments havecompared Meghan with Kate Middleton, and nearly all of the top comments ontheir last few photos were seriously harsh.

“You are irrelevant,” one person wrote under the couple’s Mother’s Day post. “Please remove this Instagram and go underground and remain in your privy world,” someone else added. In the couple’s last several posts, nearly every top comment (liked by thousands of people) was bashing the duke and duchess.

The negativity has driven Harry and Meghan to disable their comments section — and shut it down

Harry and Meghan recently posted a photo with a message in their signature blue background. It was a thank you message to their community for the support and commitment to “the good in the world.” But, interestingly, the couple disabled comments under the post.

As we can all feel, the world at this moment seems extraordinarily fragile. Yet we are confident that every human being has the potential and opportunity to make a difference—as seen now across the globe, in our families, our communities and those on the front line—together we can lift each other up to realise the fullness of that promise. What’s most important right now is the health and wellbeing of everyone across the globe and finding solutions for the many issues that have presented themselves as a result of this pandemic. As we all find the part we are to play in this global shift and changing of habits, we are focusing this new chapter to understand how we can best contribute. While you may not see us here, the work continues. Thank you to this community – for the support, the inspiration and the shared commitment to the good in the world. We look forward to reconnecting with you soon. You’ve been great! Until then, please take good care of yourselves, and of one another. Harry and Meghan

This doesn’t come as a surprise, since they’ve been berated with negativity in the comments section. But it is shocking, since royals (though they’re technically not as of March 31) are supposed to always be open with the public. However, two people can only endure so much negativity thrown their way, and it might have been time for Harry and Meghan to go even more underground.

The two seemed to hint with the phrase “you may not see us here” that they’ve decided to shut down their page altogether. Time will tell if (or when) the couple re-emerges. For now, though, they probably just need a break.

Meghan Markle 'has a spring in her step' after leaving the UK

Meghan Markle ‘feels like a new person’ now that she’s left the UK where she felt ‘trapped and claustrophobic’, a source tells Us Weekly

  • Meghan Markle, 38, is ‘thrilled to have escaped the chaos’ of the UK, source said
  • Insider added Duchess of Sussex had felt trapped and claustrophobic in UK
  • She is now a ‘new person’ and ‘has a spring in her step’ since moving

The Duchess of Sussex has a ‘spring in her step’ now that she has ‘escaped’ the UK, a source has claimed.    

Speaking to Us weekly, the unnamed insider said Meghan Markle, 38, ‘feels like a new person’ now that she is living in North America and not in the UK where she felt ‘trapped and claustrophobic’.

It comes amid fresh reports that Meghan and Harry, 35, have left Canada, where they have been living in a £10million mansion since stepping back as senior royals, in order to set up a home in California. 

A source told the Sun that the couple were fearful the US-Canada border could soon be shut due to the coronavirus pandemic.  

An unnamed insider said Meghan Markle, 38, ‘feels like a new person’ now that she is living in North America and not in the UK where she felt ‘trapped and claustrophobic’. Pictured, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex at their final public royal engagement on March 9

The source told Us Weekly that she felt ‘nervous to step outside’ while living with Harry at Frogmore Cottage, Windsor. 

‘She was nervous to step outside her own front door because of all the negative attention she attracted,’ the source said.  

Meghan and Canada spectacularly quit as senior members of the royal family in January and will officially step down next week.

It comes after reports that Meghan forbid Prince Harry from travelling, including to return to the UK to see his sick father Prince Charles, during the coronavirus outbreak. 

Prince Charles, 71, tested positive for coronavirus on Tuesday and is in self-isolation at Balmoral Castle in Scotland with his wife Camilla. 

The source told DailyMail.com the Duchess  said that ‘under no circumstances, is she okay with the Duke travelling anywhere right now.’ 

The source added: ‘Meghan said Harry’s been in touch with his dad… Of course, he’s frustrated. She said they both are frustrated because they are doers and want to do so much more to help.’

‘She said this world crisis has actually brought them all closer together, especially Harry and his brother.

‘Harry has made it very clear to them that he will do whatever he can to help from Canada.

‘Meghan said they are grateful, especially Harry, that they could spend time with his family before all this insanity began.’

Will Meghan Markle Wear a Tiara Again Following Megxit?

Meghan, Duchess of Sussex and Prince Harry will officially step down as senior members of the royal family on March 31. While no one knows for sure what their new reality will look like, there have been questions about Harry’s wife since she is still a member of the family but won’t be representing the crown going forward.

Many fans are wondering if Meghan will still be able to wear certain jewels and accessories after she is no longer a senior royal. Read on to find if the duchess could wear a tiara again following Megxit.

The only time Meghan has ever worn a tiara

The Duchess of Sussex has only worn a tiara one time and that was on her wedding day.

When Meghan and Prince Harry tied the knot on May 19, 2018, the former actress wore the bandeau diamond tiara, which was made in 1932 for Queen Mary. The last time the public saw the piece before that was back in 1965 when Princess Margaret donned it.

Although the headpiece Meghan ended up wearing that day was stunning, there have been multiple reports that it was not her first choice. Harry’s bride reportedly wanted to wear the Vladimir Tiara but the queen stepped in and told the prince that Meghan cannot have everything she wants and she wouldn’t be lending out that tiara.

In an interview, Meghan said she chose the bandeau diamond tiara after visiting Buckingham Palace to see the queen and view some “options.”

The next time the duchess could wear one

The reason Meghan didn’t wear a tiara following that day is because she simply didn’t have the opportunity to.

“Tiaras are worn by royals at weddings, state banquets, and other white tie events,” royal commentator Richard Fitzwilliams explained.

Hello! magazine noted that the duchess had not attended any of those affairs. When the Netherlands state visit took place in October 2018, Harry and Meghan were away on their royal tour of Australia and New Zealand. And when President Donald Trump visited in June 2019 Meghan was on maternity leave after giving birth to Archie. The Sussexes also did not attend the queen’s Diplomatic Corps Reception in December.

So could we see the duchess rock a glamorous headpiece in the future? Well, that all depends on if she and Harry, who are expected to return to the U.K. post-Megxit for events like Trooping the Colour, would attend any banquets or state dinners. Since they will no longer be senior royals though that possibility doesn’t seem likely, therefore, we may never see Prince Harry’s wife in a tiara again.

Times royal family members are banned from wearing tiaras

You may have noticed that royal ladies wear minimal jewelry in the daytime. Besides their engagements rings, the women aren’t dripping in diamonds when we see them out in public or attending an event during the day and they never have on a tiara then. Well, that’s because the sparkly headpieces are reportedly banned during the day.

“Before 6 p.m., you’ll see metallics, gemstones, pearls, sapphires. At night, you’ll see the diamonds come out, and that’s in order to not come across as flashy in your appearance,” royal etiquette expert Myka Meier explained.

Of course, the exception to this rule when they do wear them in the day is for special occasions such as their royal weddings.

The real reason Meghan Markle and Harry are in a better place with the royal family

If family members are willing to work through their differences and see things from each other’s perspectives, most issues can be overcome — that seems to apply to the royals in Britain, as well. The monarchy was thrown into turmoil when Prince Harry and Meghan Markle announced in January 2020 that they were stepping back from their official roles and duties. While the situation appeared to be quite dire for a while — and included a possible punishment as well as an awkward encounter — the family now seems to be focused on trying to move forward.

“Things are in a better space now between the couple and the royal family,” according to a source who opened up to Entertainment Tonight on March 23, 2020. “While of course there have been tensions, the family is getting through it.”

This is surely a good thing for Harry who was reportedly having a hard time leaving his family and may have been suffering in the aftermath of Megxit. These days, he’s likely feeling pretty darn great if he’s adjusting to his new life as well as his wife seems to be.

Meghan Markle has 'never been happier' and it's easy to understand why

Although Prince Harry and Meghan Markle faced a bumpy road when they decided to change up their royal roles, it looks like their tough decision is already paying off. Not only is the situation with the rest of the family apparently smoothing over, but a source told Us Weekly that “Meghan feels free. She has never been happier. She’s happy to be out of London.”

That’s understandable considering the “British tabloids were ruthless to Meghan Markle,” per Global News. The former actress, who has experience in the spotlight, admitted during an ITV documentary (via People) that while she was warned before marrying Harry that “the British tabloids [would] destroy [her] life, she explained: “I never thought that this would be easy, but I thought it would be fair.” It certainly didn’t seem to be fair at all if you take a look at just how differently Markle and Middleton are treated by the press. 

While this makes it quite clear why the Duchess of Sussex would want to leave England ASAP, the US Weekly insider also acknowledged that Markle “was surprised at how quickly everything happened.” That may be the case, but judging by her joy-filled final appearances in Britain with her husband at the beginning of March 2020, these two are definitely ready to begin a new life together with their son, Archie, in their Canadian home. 

And honestly, who wouldn’t be thrilled to live in a $14 million mansion on the water with their very own prince charming?

Meghan Markle Has a Trick for the Perfect Steak

Turns out Meghan Markle has a pretty ingenious method for taking steak to the next level. Long before she married Prince Harry and became the Duchess of Sussex, she ran a blog called The Tig. The former senior member of the royal family used the platform to dish out all kinds of advice, from her favorite wines to various kitchen hacks. While her followers may think they know everything about the former Suits star, her tip for cooking amazing steak is one of her best-kept secrets.

How Meghan Markle takes her steak to the next level

There are hundreds of articles online telling people how to cookthe perfect steak in the comfort of their own kitchen. But for Markle, the bestway to spruce up a cut of meat is actually after it leaves the pan.

According to Pure Wow, Markle’s best advice for takingsteak to the next level is adding some lemon juice to the finished product.

The acidity of the lemon is a great compliment to the saltinessof the steak and will really cut through the grease. Better yet, you won’t eventaste the lemon. Instead, it enhances the flavor and pulls everything together.

“Nobody tastes the lemon, but it really brings out the steak’s flavor,” Meghan Markle shared.

The lemon trick works for all kinds of steaks and will help bumpthings up a notch, even if the meat is slightly overcooked.

If you really want to impress guests, sub out the lemon juicewith a lemon-herb combination, which will add even more delicious flavors tothis dinner-time favorite.

Markle shares a lunch secret

Some of Markle’s best kitchen tips also apply to parents. In2019, Markle shared one cool trick she uses to get kids more excited aboutfruit.

Taking to social media, Markle revealed that she likes to write inspirational words on banana peels before packing them in the lunch box. The former Suits star wrote things like “You are special!” and “You are brave!,” which would brighten up anyone’s day.

Meghan Markle showed off the idea while working with a Britishcharity called One25. The organization works with women in the U.K. who dealwith poverty, homelessness, and domestic violence.

Bananas are perfect for writing messages because the skin is thick enough to protect the fruit inside. If your child is not into bananas, you can always write a sweet note on the outside of a plastic bag.

What other hacks does Meghan Markle promote?

Steak and pasta aside, Markle offered plenty of hacks on herblog over the years. This includes grilling lettuce to spice things up.

In fact, one of Markle’s favorite dishes involves grilling lettuce. She incorporates the charred lettuce in a Caesar salad and adds shrimp to make it a little more hearty (which sounds very yummy).

Although grilling lettuce is a bit controversial for some fans, the leafy veggie is strong enough to withstand the heat without breaking down. Some varieties of lettuce you can grill include kale and radicchio.

Unfortunately, Meghan Markle shut down her blog once she joined the ranks of the royal family. But since she and Prince Harry are no longer senior members of the royal family, royal fans are hoping she brings it back in one way or another.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle Did Not Bring Archie to the U.K. Amid Coronavirus Concerns

Loyal Sussex fans have been patiently awaiting a new sighting of Prince Harry and Duchess Meghan’s young son, Archie—but the couple didn’t bring their child along for their recent return to London for a fair and cautious reason.

According to Telegraph columnist Bryony Gordon, the Sussexes left Archie back in Canada—where the royal couple are currently residing—as a health precaution amid the coronavirus pandemic. The U.K. has close to 600 confirmed cases of COVID-19 as of March 12, according to Public Health England.

“The decision to leave Archie behind in Canada came not out of petty spite, as reported in some areas, but out of concern for his health during the threat of a global pandemic,” reported Gordon, who attended the Duchess of Sussex’s final engagement as a working royal on Monday.

Though royal fans will have to wait a bit longer to see baby Archie, Meghan did provide brief updates on how she and Harry’s son is doing. According to the duchess, their now 10-month-old is “into everything” and attempting his first steps.
