Royal family news – Harry 'DESTROYED hope of Queen & Prince Charles reunion as crisis 'too big' for ally Eugenie to fix'

Meghan and Harry sent the royals into crisis mode with their bombshell Oprah interview in March, while Harry has continued to keep the family on edge with revelations ever since.

And Phil Dampier believes any chance of bringing the family back together again soon remains slim.

“I don’t think there is much chance of a reconciliation between anyone at the moment and I wouldn’t have thought Eugenie is in a position to [help] – even though she is matey with [Meghan and Harry],” he said.

Eugenie is understood to be closer to Harry than her sister Beatrice is and may even have been the one to introduce him to Meghan. But any moves to help the family reach a positive future are likely to be supported by Beatrice, who is marking her 33rd birthday today.

Mr Dampier continued: “I’m sure that Beatrice will support any moves by Eugenie to try and build bridges and get a dialogue going between William and Harry. I think they’ll be a bit concerned about some of the stuff that has been said but obviously a bit more sympathetic than some of the older royals.”

    MEGHAN MARKLE DEFENDED BY KARREN BRADY OVER 'PUBLICITY STUNT' BIRTHDAY VIDEO

    Meghan's released her 40×40 scheme for her birthday last week and has since been accused of staging a publicity stunt. But the Duchess of Sussex has received backing The Apprentice star Karren Brady for doing her bit to help others.

    In her column for The Sun, Karren wrote: "Some are calling it a publicity stunt, but still, what a brilliant line-up of women she has queuing to help other women.

    "Whatever you think of Meghan, this is such a positive way to mark turning 40 – by inviting women to help other women back into the workplace.

    "We all need a mentor and a helping hand, and even those who say it is 'woke' and 'publicity seeking' surely have to acknowledge that this is a positive initiative."

    PRINCE HARRY SET TO ASK PRINCESS EUGENIE TO HELP WITH HIS EXPLOSIVE MEMOIR

    Despite Meghan and Prince Harry’s rift with Royals ‘too big’ for Eugenie to solve despite peacemaker hopes, an insider has said: “I could only imagine Eugenie talking or being approached as she is someone Harry is still in regular contact with.”

    Harry is bringing out the book next year with celebrated ghostwriter JR Moehringer. Pulitzer Prize-winner Moehringer is expected to bypass formal channels and contact the duke’s inner circle via Harry.

    PRINCE HARRY 'PLAYING VICTIM CARD' TELLS ACADEMIC

    Harry's memoir, which is due next year, is expected to shed more light on the Royal Family – highlighting his time with them, growing up and the events which lead up to Megit.

    Joanna Williams, a leading academic has said Harry's actions were perfect example of all the things "wrong with woke", and that the Duke was "playing the victim card at every possible opportunity".

    She said: "What Meghan and Harry do that's so useful is that they just absolutely verbalise what the zeitgeist is, unintentionally revealing the consequences of a lot of these kinds of woke ideas."

    "You've got a white man – however you want to play this, whether on identitarian grounds, or somebody who's money has come through inheritance – with huge amounts of wealth, who has had all kinds of doors opened for him, who has lived a life of incredible privilege.

    "And yet he somehow manages to play the victim card at every available opportunity and thinks that his victim status, whether it's through mental health or through racism by proxy because of his relationship to Meghan, allows him to preach to the rest of us."

    MEGHAN MARKLE’S BROTHER THOMAS JR SAYS HE TOLD PRINCE HARRY ‘SHALLOW’ SISTER WILL ‘RUIN HIS LIFE’ IN BIG BROTHER PREVIEW

    Thomas Markle Jr, the Duchess of Sussex's estranged half-brother, is already stirring up trouble ahead of his entrance to the star-studded Australian reality show.

    In the dramatic teaser ahead of last night's launch, the 55-year-old boasted: "I'm Meghan Markle's brother, I'm the biggest brother of them all."

    He continues his introduction with another shocking statement, claiming: "I told Prince Harry, I think she's going to ruin your life. She's very shallow."

    Meg already has a strained relationship with her dad, Thomas Markle Sr, and step-brother, stemming from her wedding to Prince Harry in May 2018.

    Thomas Jr was snubbed from the ceremony and at the time said he hadn't seen his sister for around seven years.

    He previously spoke out about being missed off the invite list – despite having implored Prince Harry to call off the ceremony as Meghan "is obviously not the right woman for you".

    PRINCE HARRY & MEGHAN MEGHAN ‘TROLLING THE WORLD’ WITH UNCLEAR SNAPS OF CHILDREN, SAYS ROYAL AUTHOR

    Harry and Meghan have shared a picture of Archie holding balloons to mark his second birthday. But it was blurry with a filter over it – so you could barely see the youngster.

    But it isn't the first time the Royal pair have released a picture which is unlikely to win awards for clarity.

    Omid Scobie, author of Finding Freedom, says it is entirely deliberate – and the pair are "trolling" the public.

    "This was, as I think we've come to experience from the Sussexes, a photo of Archie but not too clear.

    "I think this is their way of trolling the world."

    PRINCE HARRY’S EX-GIRLFRIEND BROKE UP WITH HIM DUE TO WILLIAM AND KATE’S WEDDING

    Chelsy Davy, Harry’s former girlfriend, finally called it quits with him in 2011 after an on-off relationship with him.

    After watching the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge tie the knot, Chelsy realised she just wasn’t cut out for royal life.

    Royal biographer Robert Lacey explains in his book Battle of Brothers that: “she finally decided to go – and it was, ironically, Kate and William’s grand and glorious wedding that spring that did it for her.”

    “According to a friend, she told Harry that she could never make the scarifies she had witnessed Kate making, particularly when it came to moulding her life around the unremitting attention of the press.”

    EXPERT SAYS HARRY & MEG RIFT WITH ROYALS ‘TOO BIG FOR EUGENIE TO SOLVE’

    MEGHAN Markle and Prince Harry’s rift with the Royal Family is “too big” for Princess Eugenie to heal – despite hopes she could bring the peace, a royal expert has said.

    It was speculated this week that Eugenie, 31, could help build bridges between the Duke of Sussex and his family.

    She remains an ally to Harry — after he upset other family members with Megxit and public outbursts. And she is also known to be particularly close to her grandmother, the Queen.

    But Royal author Phil Dampier believes ongoing tensions between Harry and his family are so big, Eugenie’s influence is unlikely to have any impact.

    “I personally don’t think there’s much Eugenie can do at the moment to heal the rift,” Mr Dampier told The Sun Online. I think the rift is too deep for her to play a major role in healing it.”

    OMID SCOOBIE BLASTS HBO CARTOON THE PRINCE AS ‘CREEPY AND BORDERLINE-BULLYING’

    Royal reporter Omid Scobie chimed in on the new HBO cartoon causing a stir amongst royal fans around the world.

    He tweeted, “Don’t particularly agree with parodying children but guessing I’m in the minority as @hbomax’s no-f***s-given series #ThePrince hits the streamer tomorrow.”

    “Royals have been parodied on dozens of shows over the years (Spitting Image, The Windsors, SNL etc),” Scobie added in, “but this is the first time I can recall children being targeted. It may be ‘comedy’ but it comes across as creepy and borderline-bullying. Seems like many of you feel the same…”

    MEGHAN MARKLE ‘IGNORED’ DAD AFTER THOMAS SENT HER 40TH BIRTHDAY FLOWERS WITH SWEET MESSAGE FOR GRANDKIDS HE’S NEVER MET

    MEGHAN Markle reportedly ignored her dad after he sent her flowers for her 40th birthday. Thomas Markle wished the Duchess of Sussex a “brighter future” on Wednesday with a $287 (around £200) bouquet of red roses, exclusively revealed by The Sun.

    He sent a dozen red roses with two yellow roses in the middle, which Thomas said symbolised Meghan and Harry’s two children Archie and Lilibet.

    Meghan’s estranged dad told TMZ he wanted to incorporate his grandkids in the arrangement because he wants to be a part of their lives.

    And he sent them with a small note seen by The Sun, which read: “Happy Birthday to my bean with much love and a brighter future. Dad.”

    But Thomas told TMZ he hasn’t heard from his daughter since he sent the gift. He reportedly said ‘that’s fine’ and he’s just ‘hoping she likes the flowers’.

    EXPLAINED: HOW DOES HBO’S THE PRINCE PORTRAY THE ROYAL FAMILY?

    The animated series is set from the prospective of 8-year-old Prince George, Prince William and Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge’s eldest child, and the future heir to the British throne.

    Created by Gary Janetti, the show is based off of his meme page of the young Prince and pokes fun at the royals and mocks most of the family members.

    In the show, Prince George is portrayed as a sassy and effete royal commentator.

    MEGHAN ‘SLAMMED DOOR ON KATE MIDDLETON’ WHEN SHE TOOK DUCHESS FLOWERS – CLAIMS

    The Times claimed that Meghan slammed the door on Kate Middleton when she took flowers to Nottingham Cottage – the Sussex’s home at the time.

    Kate was said to be apologising for a fallout they’d had about bridesmaid dresses in the build up to Meghan and Harry’s wedding.

      LAWSUIT ‘COULD BE DEVASTATING FOR ANDREW’

      The lawsuit against the Duke in America is set to cause massive embarrassment for the Royals as lawyers seek probe him about his sex life under oath – and he could be forced to hand over texts, emails, and private letters.

      A defamation suit filed by Roberts against Epstein’s then-partner Ghislaine Maxwell in 2015 ended in a settlement, though incredibly embarrassing depositions about Maxwell’s sex life were made public last year.

      A source said: “This could be devastating for Andrew. If he chooses to fight it and is deposed [forced to give evidence], then those depositions could end up being made public.

      “If he ignores it, he could be found guilty in absentia which would be a public relations disaster.”

      Under the New York Child Victims Act, Roberts has until next Saturday to file the civil action, which will include claims she and the Duke had sex three times in 2001.

      ORLANDO BLOOM DEFENDS HBO MAXX’s ‘THE PRINCE’

      While many have taken shots at the content, Orlando Bloom, the voice of the Duke of Sussex on The Prince and real-life friend of Prince Harry, defended the comedy.

      “It’s not malicious or intended to be. He’s really got his finger on the pulse, Gary. He’s so smart and so zeitgeisty,” Bloom said about the show.

      “I rolled the dice on it, but I’m going to have to mention it to Prince Harry when I next see him, because I’m not going to be able to not. Oddly, I’m sure I’m going to see him at some point, just because of the nature of the universe, it always throws people together.”

      The royal family has yet to publicly address the show.
