Royal Family news – Queen secret death plans leaked as Prince Harry blames vaccine hesitancy on 'people peddling lies'

Buckingham Palace aides have launched a mole-hunt after detailed papers for the Queen's death sensationally leaked today.

Top officials are said to be on the warpath, with a probe into who revealed the documents under way.

The secret blueprint for Operation London Bridge – the codename for the plans – reveals every detail of the official response, from Charles' 'mourning tour' of the UK to what royals will post on social media.

It also details fears that London will be "stretched to breaking point" as millions of mourners head to the capital.

And Prince Harry has blamed misinformation around the slow uptake of vaccines around the world.

Speaking at a surprise appearance during the GQ Men of the Year awards, the Duke said: "We cannot move forward together unless we address this imbalance as one.

"At the same time, families around the world are being overwhelmed by mass-scale of misinformation across news media and social media, where those who peddle in lies and fear are creating vaccine hesitancy, which in turn leads to divided communities and eroding trust."

    MEG HER MARK

    Piers Morgan’s OFCOM controversial ruling, which has also been hailed as a huge win for freedom of speech, is said to have infuriated Meghan and her camp – including her media mouthpiece, Omid Scobie.

    The royal biographer shared his opinion of the decision and suggested the Human Rights Act could have been broken after the Duchesses claims that she suffered with her mental health were dismissed live on air.

    In a tweet, Scobie said he “questioned” Ofcom’s verdict as “freedom of expression” under the 1988 Act is subject to the “protection of health or morals.”

    “While everyone should be free to express opinion on public figures, discrediting a person’s mental health issues on TV reinforced a dangerous stigma and put others at risk,” he added.

    But Piers proved he is back with a vengeance after clearing his name – and tore the Sussexes pal to shreds by telling him: “Pipe down, Lickspittle.”

    His savage response continued: “You just trashed the Queen in your garbage book without a care for the mental health of a 95-year-old woman grieving the loss of her husband.”

      OMID SCOBIE SAYS MEG & HARRY’S ‘STEP INTO HOLLYWOOD’ IS ‘GOING TO BE REALLY INTERESTING’

       Meg and Harry’s £112 million deal with streaming giants Netflix, who could provide the perfect platform to showcase their ideas.

      “It’s only a matter of time before they’ve acquired the rights to a really incredible story, that they’re able to bring to life through a movie or a television drama,” Scobie continued.

      “We’ve heard a lot about the non-scripted work that they’re doing. There is that whole side of the production company that is scripted. So it’s only a matter of time before we actually see that come to life.

      “I think that that’s really exciting because it’s a side of them that we’ve never seen or heard of before, but also one that we know they’re both eager to get into.

      “So being able to step into Hollywood a bit but trying to do it in the way – as they were describing – a much more impactful and socially conscious way – that’s going to be really interesting.”

      SUSSEXES COULD APPEAR ON BIG SCREEN, OMID SCOBIE HINTS

      As the Duke and Duchess continue to form strong relationships amongst LA’s elite, it seems they could be broadening their horizons after stepping back from the Royal family by planning to appear on the big screen.

      Scobie revealed on the Royally Obsessed podcast: “I had a very interesting conversation with some executives at Netflix recently. I was trying my best to get a little bit on the Sussexes.

      “All that was said to me was ‘oh man, you don’t even know the half of what they’re working on. They are aiming so high’.

      “So I think the one thing that may surprise us at one point – and I don’t know when this will be – and this is just my own guess really… I think this is when we’re going to hear some sort of movie announcement.”

      PRINCE HARRY WILL TARGET CAMILLA PARKER BOWLES IN HIS £29M MEMOIR

      PRINCE Harry will target his stepmother Camilla Parker-Bowles in his tell-all £29m memoir and may even name the “royal racist”, Paul Burrell has claimed.

      Princess Diana’s former butler said the Duke is “set to reveal any Camilla secrets” as he dishes the dirt in his memoir, due to be released in 2022.

      The 36-year-old won’t hold back on the woman who cooly “stepped into Diana’s shoes” after her death, because his publishers “want their money’s worth,” according to Burrell. But it could only exacerbate the ongoing Royal family feud as he believes Prince Charles will be “livid” if he tarnishes the Duchess of Cornwall.

      His highly-anticipated four-book deal, which promises to delve into the “highs and lows” of his extraordinary life, has already got the Palace on pins – and now the ex-Royal butler believes he will provide “names and specifics”.

      The 63-year-old told Closer magazine: “The publisher, Penguin, will no doubt want their money’s worth in this book deal. That means they won’t want vagueness – they’ll want names and specifics.”

      TIMELINE OF PIERS MORGAN’S HISTORY WITH MEGHAN MARKLE AND PRINCE HARRY

      Morgan’s feud with Meghan stems back to 2015, when the broadcaster says the now-Duchess “ghosted” him.

      2015

      • In 2015, the pair were friendly and followed each other on Twitter.

      2016

      • In 2016, the pair met for drinks in London at Piers’ favourite pub while Markle was in town.

      2018

      • In May of 2018, in the lead up to Harry and Meghan’s royal wedding, Morgan wrote of his sympathy towards for Meghan’s father, Thomas Markle, who would not be invited to the royal wedding amid the family drama that had ensued.

      2021

      • Fast forward to 2021, Piers’ anger only grew when it was announced that Meghan and Harry would be doing a 2-hour long interview with Oprah.

      BIG BUCKS: MEGHAN MARKLE & PRINCE HARRY STILL OWE £78,500 TO CHARITY AS THEIR FOUNDATION FINALLY CLOSES

      The couple’s MWX Foundation, formerly Sussex Royal, is in liquidation but has not paid off the unnamed non-profit, papers released today revealed.

      The report said a claim of £213,000 had been received from a creditor relating to a grant due to a “not-for-profit enterprise”.

      A total of £134,500 has been paid off, according to the most recent figures, leaving £78,500 left to hand over.

      The Duke and Duchess of Sussex began winding up MWX a year ago, declaring all of its debts would be paid in full within 12 months.

      But more than 12 months later and the outstanding amount on the Companies House document remains.

      It reads: “The charity has sufficient funds to settle the claim in full and a final dividend is to be made shortly to pay the remaining balance.”

        FINDING FREEDOM: WHAT HAS CHANGED IN THE NEW EDITION OF HARRY & MEGHAN’S BIOGRAPHY?

        The authors have updated the book with a new chapter, promising a host of revelations since it was first published last summer.

        As well as Harry and Meghan’s reaction to Philip’s death, publisher HarperCollins said the new edition will share “behind the scenes” details of the Oprah interview as well as their move to California.

        It will also recount “Meghan’s emotional healing journey from losing a child to the birth of their daughter”.

        Finding Freedom already chronicles the Duke and Duchess’s romance and brief period as members of the monarchy before they broke away to forge a new life for themselves and son Archie in America.

        Scobie, a journalist favoured by the Sussexes, said of the first edition that the couple “did not authorise the book and have never been interviewed for it”.

        PRINCE HARRY HAD ‘VERY SPECIAL’ REUNION WITH THE QUEEN, BOOK REVEALS

        Following Prince Philip’s funeral, the new tell-all Harry and Meghan biography Finding Freedom reveals Harry and The Queen had a “very special” reunion.

        After returning to the UK for the first time since moving to the US to attend his grandfather’s funeral in April of this year, an insider has said the funeral provided an opportunity for Harry to “spend precious moments” with the Queen.

        “To see each other after so long apart, the longest he hadn’t seen the Queen for, was very special,” a source told Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand.

        “Despite everything that has happened, he has the utmost love and respect for her. Her life of duty and service is one of the many ways in which she has inspired him to also serve.”

        WHAT IS RUMOURED TO BE IN PRINCE HARRY’S BOOK SO FAR?

        Revelations said to be in the chapter of Prince Harry’s memoirs include:

        • The royals were ‘quietly pleased’ Meghan was unable to attend Prince Philip’s funeral
        • The brothers were heartbroken after the death of their grandfather
        • William was ‘furious’ about the Oprah interview
        • Harry’s Remembrance Sunday wreath was left in a box because he was ‘no longer a frontline royal’
        • Meghan believes the Palace ‘tried to discredit’ her amid accusations over bullying

        EXPLAINED: WHAT IS PIERS MORGAN FEUD WITH MEGHAN MARKLE AND PRINCE HARRY?

        Over the years, Piers has criticised Meghan, repeatedly calling her “fake”, a “ruthless social climber” and accused her of using her marriage to “get to the top”.

        The media broadcaster has also described Prince Harry as hypocritical, accusing the Duke of “playing the victim”.

        It is long-running commentary that has seen Morgan accused of bullying, sexism, and racism.

        While the feud has remained one sided with the Duke and Duchess staying tight-lipped on Morgan’s take-downs, the pair have been vocal in their criticism of the media.

        MEGHAN MARKLE ‘MORE DETERMINED THAN EVER’ TO GET THE LAST WORD & SPEAK OUT AFTER PIERS MORGAN OFCOM VICTORY, EXPERT SAYS

        This is a Sun exclusive.

        Furious Meghan Markle is said to be”more determined than ever,” to get the last word and speak out after Piers Morgan’s Ofcom victory.

        This will make the divide “even deeper” between the Sussexes and the Royal Family, according to an expert.

        Speaking about Meghan’s next move, writer and broadcaster Adam Helliker told The Sun Online: “I think she’s going to feel more determined and it will up her game so to speak. 

        “She will convince all her followers that this is how Britain operates. I think she will see it as yet another method of protecting the Royal Family.

        “And it just kind of – the divide is getting ever deeper. And the longer it goes on, the rift, you just wonder, how on earth can they ever come back from that?

        “They will up their game in terms of putting out more statements, being more independent and just pushing away even further.”

          ITV’S STATEMENT ON PIERS’ INVESTIGATION IN THE WAKE OF OPRAH WINFREY’S INTERVIEW WITH THE DUKE AND DUCHESS OF SUSSEX

          After careful consideration, the broadcaster found the programme, nor Piers Morgan, was not in breach of our broadcasting rules.

          The full decision is available here, and part of the statement, given by an Ofcom spokesperson reads: “This was a finely-balanced decision. Mr Morgan’s comments were potentially harmful and offensive to viewers, and we recognise the strong public reaction to them. But we also took full account of freedom of expression. Under our rules, broadcasters can include controversial opinions as part of legitimate debate in the public interest, and the strong challenge to Mr Morgan from other contributors provided important context for viewers.

          “Nonetheless, we’ve reminded ITV to take greater care around content discussing mental health and suicide in future. ITV might consider the use of timely warnings or signposting of support services to ensure viewers are properly protected.”

          PIERS MORGAN SAYS QUEEN OF WOKE MEGHAN MARKLE CAN’T SILENCE US ANYMORE – IF SHE CAN HAVE HER VIEWS THEN I CAN HAVE MINE

          The ex-GMB host was yesterday cleared by Ofcom after accusing Meghan of making up claims in her and husband Harry’s interview with Oprah Winfrey that a senior royal had been racist, and that Meghan’s mental health had suffered.

          Piers called her a “whiny, forked-tongue actress” and said the report was a “resounding defeat for Princess Pinocchio”.

          He told The Sun: “The woke brigade think they can vilify, shame, silence and get fired anyone who has an opinion they don’t like.

          “Meghan Markle is the queen of this culture, who personally sought to have me lose my job — and succeeded.

          “Why are she and Prince Harry entitled to have their opinion but I’m not entitled to mine?”

          PIERS MORGAN JOKES ‘AWKS’ AFTER WATCHING PRINCE HARRY GIVE SURPRISE SPEECH AT GQ AWARDS FOLLOWING OFCOM VICTORY

          The TV presenter, 56, was in the audience for Harry’s anti-vaxxer rant just hours after he won his Ofcom complaint against him and Meghan Markle.

          He shared a story on his Twitter this morning about him watching the royal’s speech, simply saying: “#awks”.

          THE BIZARRE ROYAL FAMILY TRADITION GIVEN THE BOOT BY PRINCE PHILLIP

          According to Royal expert Richard Jobson, Prince Phillip “cancelled” a “ridiculous” royal family tradition after he found out where it came from.

          The no-nonsense Duke apparently grew increasingly irritated by what he deemed to be “outdated” rules and traditions and therefore banned a tradition that came from Queen Victoria herself.

          She would always order a bottle of whiskey of she had a cold. It became the case that a bottle would always appear at the monarch’s bedside.

          Mr Jobson said: “[Philip] was determined to modernise things inside the Palace.

          “He was the person that brought the television cameras into the coronation ceremony. He was the person that really wanted to conduct the first TV interviews, and did so.

          “He was a great believer in science and technology. So he was someone who really did want to change the way things were done.”

          Mr Jobson added: “He found some of the things completely ridiculous and outdated.

          “The Queen had to sort of temper that, that enthusiasm to change things.”

          LADY LOUISE WINDSOR FACES BIG ROYAL DECISION AS SHE APPROACHES 18TH BIRTHDAY

          Lady Louise is the daughter of Prince Edward and Sophie. In two months she will turn 18, and when she reaches the milestone she will decide if she wants to use the HRH title.

          The Countess of Wessex told the Sunday Times in 2020 that: “we try to bring them up with the understanding they are very likely to have to work for a living.

          “Hence we made the decision not to use HRH titles.

          “They have them and can decide to use them from 18, but I think it’s highly unlikely.”

          Louise’s brother, Viscount Severn will also face the same decision when he celebrates his 18th birthday. He is only 13 so has some time to make up his mind.

          MEGHAN MARKLE WILL BE ‘ABSOLUTELY LIVID’ AS PIERS MORGAN WINS OFCOM RULING OVER ‘LIAR’ BLAST

          Royal biographer Angela Levin says the Duchess of Sussex could bring her lawyers in after Ofcom ruled the former Good Morning Britain host was entitled to give his opinions about her during a heated debate.

          Following the sensational win for free speech, Piers said Meghan wrote to his ITV boss Dame Carolyn McCall demanding “his head on a plate,” in a “nauseating” bid to get him fired.

          And it’s believed the Duchess will be as angry now that her pleas failed and Piers won the complaint.

          On how Meghan will feel about the ruling, Royal author Angela Levin told The Sun Online: “I think she will be absolutely livid and she’ll ask her lawyers to see what they can do about it.

          “She can’t cope with someone saying she didn’t tell the truth. Because she is all about compassion and understanding and caring for people.”

          PRINCE HARRY WILL TARGET CAMILLA PARKER BOWLES IN HIS £29M MEMOIR

          PRINCE Harry will target his stepmother Camilla Parker-Bowles in his tell-all £29m memoir and may even name the “royal racist”, Paul Burrell has claimed.

          Princess Diana’s former butler said the Duke is “set to reveal any Camilla secrets” as he dishes the dirt in his memoir, due to be released in 2022.

          HARRY COMPARED TO EDWARD VIII AFTER HE FADED OUT OF PUBLIC VIEW – AND WROTE AN AUTOBIOGRAPHY

          In an interview with Fox News, Mr Bullen listed some of the similarities between Harry and Edward.

          Edward, who abdicated in 1936 to marry American divorcee and socialite Wallis, wrote a ghost-written autobiography after he was cut off with no source of income.

          Book A King’s Story: Memoirs of the Duke of Windsor was published in 1951, and included detail about the royal split and his relationship with Wallis.

          Harry is currently writing his own memoirs after signing a £29million four-book mega-deal.

          SUSANNA REID REVEALS SHE FEELS ‘AWKWARD’ STUCK BETWEEN PIERS MORGAN AND ITV BOSSES AFTER OFCOM STAND-OFF

          Speaking for the first time since the landmark Ofcom win, Susanna said that she felt “awkward” being stuck in the middle during the complaint.

          The presenter also confirmed that Piers wouldn’t be on the show this morning – or be returning to his job on Good Morning Britain.

          She revealed this morning on GMB: “What struck me about the Ofcom ruling, on the one hand, I’ve got my friend Piers Morgan, and on the other, I’ve got my bosses at ITV.

          “So it’s obviously a slightly awkward moment right now.”

          Susanna said Piers will NOT be returning to the show this morning.

          And when she was asked if she was “devastated,” the presenter simply said: “it was quite a moment, wasn’t it.”
