‘What Great Britain stands for’ Sir David Jason on how the Queen epitomises true Brit grit
Sir David Jason, 82, said Queen Elizabeth has set the “standard of what Great Britain stands for” when he joined the star-studded line-up for the Platinum Jubilee celebrations at the Royal Windsor Horse Show on Sunday night.The actor accompanied the likes of Dame Kelly Holmes, Ant and Dec and Dame Maureen Lipman for a segment which discussed what the Queen means to them.Appearing in an opulent room, David proclaimed that the Queen is a “wonderful woman” and praised her for 70 years of service.The Only Fools and Horses star said: “[The Queen] is the sort of standard of what Great Britain stands for.”Speaking over clips of Her Majesty attending her father George VI’s funeral aged 25, David continued: “To take on the responsibility that was handed to her on her father’s death was tremendous.“How many people that age do you know that could do anywhere near what was expected of her.“She showed such metal...a wonderful woman.”The actor then commended the Queen for the dedication she has shown throughout her reign.He applauded: “She is an example to us all about how you can be dedicated to something.“Whether it is your job, to life, to your religion, to whatever.Possibly the most surprising was Tom Cruise who introduced the King's Troop, Royal Horse Artillery.Speaking on stage, the Top Gun actor said it was a “privilege” to be asked to take part in The Queen’s celebrations and gushed that he has “great respect” for the monarch.He said: “It’s a real privilege. I was just very honoured [when I was asked to be part of the Jubilee celebrations].

Meghan and Harry risk becoming 'sad version of Royal Family', says expert
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry may be at risk of becoming a "sad version of the British Royal Family abroad", a royal expert has savagely claimed. The expert said the Duke and Duchess' decision to "have their own life" away from the royal family in March 2020 could "come back to bite" the couple in the future.Harry and Meghan have hardly returned to the UK after they severed their ties with the Firm but recently managed a quick stop to briefly see the Queen.Ian Lloyd, author of the newly-published 'The Queen: 70 Chapters in the life of Elizabeth II’, has suggested the ex-royal couple could end up like the Duke and Duchess of Windsor if they continue on their current trajectory.Mr Lloyd said: “They could eventually end up like the Duke and Duchess of Windsor, where they’re just a sort of mini court, miles away from Britain.”This would end up with the pair becoming a "sad version of the British Royal Family abroad”, he savaged.The "Duke of Windsor" is the title that was given to King Edward VIII after he ascended, then abdicated, the throne back in 1936.The late King renounced his throne in order to marry Wallis Simpson, an American socialite and divorcée.He is the only monarch in British history to have given up the Crown voluntarily.King Edward VIII met Ms Simpson during the 1930s and fell in love with her but opposition from senior royal ranks, the Church and other factors led the monarch to renounce his reign.

Prince Harry admits UK is no longer home during ‘Today’ interview
Exiled UK royal Prince Harry readily admitted that the UK is no longer his home — and notably avoided saying whether he misses his dad and brother after their years-long bitter feud.“Home for me now, for the time being, is in the United States — and it feels that way as well,” the 37-year-old prince told the “Today” show in an interview that aired Wednesday.Asked pointedly by Hoda Kotb if “you feel like that’s home more for you,” Harry nodded and said, “Yup.”“I’m sure it will become a thing,” he admitted of having turned his back on the nation his family rules over.Harry gave a vague “of course” reply when asked if he missed his family, whom he has rarely seen since fleeing Britain and quitting life as a royal at the beginning of 2020.But he quickly changed the topic when asked if he missed his dad, heir to the throne Prince Charles, 73, and his once-close 39-year-old brother, Prince William.“For me, at the moment, I am here focused on these guys,” he said of the military veterans at the 2022 Invictus Games, where he was interviewed.“That’s my focus here and when I leave here I get back the focus is my family, who I miss massively,” he said of his kids with wife Meghan Markle, son Archie, 2, and daughter Lilibet, 10 months.Harry pointedly said it was “great” seeing his grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II, during his recent surprise trip to the UK — again making no mention of also seeing his 73-year-old dad, Charles.“It was really nice to see her — to be able to see her in some element of privacy was nice,” he said.“We have a special relationship with talking about things that she can’t talk about with anybody else,” he said of the Monarch, who turns 96 on Thursday, joking that by now she must be “bored” of birthdays.Even so,

'Got to have some limits!' Piers Morgan warns Bill Maher not to brand Queen 'the old bag'
Piers Morgan, 57, was getting on swimmingly with Bill Maher, 66, until the American comedian and political commentator cheekily nicknamed the Queen “the old bag” while the pair discussed the British royal family.The harsh remark was uttered during Piers’ appearance on Bill’s Club Random podcast, which was released today.While discussing his new role on TalkTV with Bill, Piers reflected on his explosive exit from Good Morning Britain, prompted by backlash over his decision to publicly berate Meghan Markle’s claims about the royals being “racist” during her interview with Oprah Winfrey.Sharing his own views on the controversy, Bill said: “Meghan and Harry, they go on Oprah, which itself… why do you need to do that?“Okay, so the royal family is accused of racism.“I’m sure the old bag’s got to be 100, I mean, she grew up in…”Piers then promptly cut across Bill to tell him off for his throwaway comment about the Queen.He warned: “Can you not call her majesty ‘the old bag’?”“Really?” Bill exclaimed in response.Piers then explained his objection to the phrase, adding: “I’ve got to have some limits for our country. “I don’t mind you trashing our television, that’s fair enough, because you’re right about a lot of that, but the Queen has been on that throne for 70 years.“And actually, I would say, of all leaders of any kind in the world, probably, despite everything, remains the most respected leader of all in the world.”Bill hit back: “Okay, f**k me!”Piers continued: “So you can’t call her offensive names in my presence without me calling you out on it.”“Okay, fine,” Bill conceded.Aside from their clash over Queen Elizabeth II, Piers seemed to enjoy talking to Bill about his controversial departure from GMB.Bill began by praising
