Royals 'not obliged' to wish Meghan happy birthday but 'don't want to make it worse'
Royal Family will be wishing Meghan Markle a happy birthday "through gritted teeth" a royal expert has claimed.Meghan Markle, who turns 41 on August 4, usually receives a round of birthday messages on social media from family and fans alike.But last year's celebrations were done with less than favourable results, one royal expert has claimed, where several members of The Firm were said to have sent birthday messages to avoid further public fallout for the family.READ MORE: Princess Eugenie showed Meghan Markle birthday support with thoughtful gift after MegxitMembers of the Royal Family including Prince Charles, Kate Middleton and Prince William are alleged to have not wanted to make the situation "worse" and sent out messages of birthday support.Royal expert Phil Dampier spoke of the "gritted teeth" mentality of the Royal Family at the time, saying that the family were "not obliged" to offer birthday wishes.Dampier said: "I think it is likely they will send a public message through gritted teeth."I think Charles, the Queen, and William and Kate don’t want to make the situation worse by having a public slanging match with them, but privately I think they are very upset by how things have turned out."Meghan's birthday last year was mired by a number of public comments made during an interview with Oprah Winfrey where the Duchess of Sussex sent shockwaves to the Royal Family.But it would appear that while the family aren't "obliged to give her messages on her birthday" they did so as "they don't want to make it worse," Dampier said.This year Meghan is expected to celebrate her birthday this Thursday with Prince Harry and their children, Archie and Lilibet, at their California home following last years focused around her

Netflix’s The Crown to make way for potential spin-offs
The Crown, we might be getting more than we’ve bargained for when it comes to Netflix’s biggest show.WATCH BELOW: Prince Harry and Prince William unveil the new Princess Diana statue on her 60th birthdayA report from British newspaper The Sun has suggested the planned ending of The Crown will be altered to open things up for a spin-off series about the young royals – mostly Harry and William.The show’s fifth and final series was believed to be ending in the year 2002, when Queen Elizabeth lost both her mother and her sister, Margaret.However, it’s now thought to be ending in 2005, when Charles finally married his long-term love, Camilla Parker-Bowles, who will become Queen Consort when he is finally named King.Olivia Colman has starred as Queen Elizabeth for the last two seasons.“It’s a small but significant shift because it’s seen as marking the start of an era which becomes more focused on Princes William and Harry and their father,” the source revealed.“The marriage of Charles and Camilla is treated like the end of one turbulent period in the Windsors’ story, and the start of a whole new one.”Indeed, as Harry and William have grown up before our eyes, monarchists have remained interested in their many exploits – especially as they have gotten married and had children of their own.This obsession reached boiling point during Megxit, when Harry and wife Meghan Markle decided to step back as senior royals in 2020 and relocate to North America.Prince Charles with Harry and William in 2005.Harry was 21 in 2005, the same year he was embroiled in a scandal for donning a Nazi costume, a decision that followed him around for many years to come.In the years since, he has served in the Air Force, married Meghan, and become a

Prince Andrew 'furious with Charles and William for blocking his public comeback'
Prince Charles, 73, and Prince William, 39, both reportedly stepped in to prevent Prince Andrew's return to public life at Royal Ascot and the Order of the Garter Ceremony.Andrew, 62, is understood to be enraged with his elder brother and nephew, who it is believed persuaded the Queen, 96, to stop Andrew from attending the full Order of the Garter Ceremony, which was presided over by his mother at Windsor Castle earlier this month.Instead, he was only seen at some parts of the Knights of the Garter Ceremony.Buckingham Palace reported that the Duke of York's absence from the Windsor Castle procession and Order of the Garter service was a "family decision".He did join the Queen at the formal investiture of new members of the Order of the Garter - including Tony Blair and Charles' wife the Duchess of Cornwall - and at the lunch afterwards.But his alleged bid to return to Royal duties has apparently been met with resistance from the two direct heirs to the throne, with Her Majesty supposedly telling Andrew to keep out of sight "for his own good". The Queen also missed Royal Ascot for the first time during her reign and was replaced in Saturday's Royal procession by the Duke of Kent, Andrew's eldest daughter Princess Beatrice and her husband Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi.

Five bombshells from Princess Diana's book - hate mail, running away and 'striptease'
Princess Diana's fractured relationship with the Royal Family sent shockwaves around Britain and beyond in 1992.The late mother of Prince William and Prince Harry, laid bare her unhappiness to author Andrew Morton, who published her secrets in 'Diana, Her True Story'.Three decades on and almost 25 years since Diana's tragic Paris car crash death, we look at five of the most ground-breaking revelations from the book.Diana told Mr Morton of the hate mail she received, how she ran away from the palace, Camilla Parker Bowles' influence on her marriage to Prince Charles, her media hell and a royal 'striptease'.The former Princess of Wales was determined to do good in the world and that included supporting AIDS victims.For years AIDS carried with it stigma and prejudice, which Diana not only looked past but challenged in her actions which were not universally well received.Mr Morton wrote: "While her involvement with Aids counselling initially met with some hostility, which was regularly translated into anonymous hate mail, it was part of her desire to help the forgotten victims in society."It mattered not whether he was dying of Aids, cancer or some other disease; she had given her word to be with him at the end."Diana spoke about the times her husband Charles failed to put her needs first and was once so fed up she made a run for it.The late princess also told Mr Morton that she thought Charles was a "selfish father" to William and Harry. Mr Morton wrote: "When Prince Charles arrived home from a private visit to France she found his presence so oppressive that she literally ran out of Kensington Palace."She thought he was a bad father, a selfish father, the children had to tie in with what he's doing.

Meghan and Harry given ‘direct message’ by Kate and William’s Windsor move, expert says
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have been given a “direct message” by Prince William and Kate Middleton after Harry’s comments about the Queen needing protection, a royal commentator has claimed. Before returning briefly to the UK for the Queen’s Jubilee with Meghan, the Duke of Sussex gave an interview with US TV, where he controversially alleged that he wanted to ensure his grandmother is “protected” and has “the right people around her”.This comes amid reports that Harry and William’s feud has yet to be resolved, with the brothers seemingly refusing to look at one another during an awkward thanksgiving service at the Jubilee celebrations.Now, royal commentator Neil Sean has claimed that the Cambridges’ reported plans to move to Windsor may have been influenced to hit back at the ex-royals over their US switch.“That was a statement that really shocked and rocked senior members of the British monarchy," he told viewers of his YouTube channel."When you think about it, Harry is the one that departed, went thousands of miles away and left our gracious Majesty the Queen at the height of her grief for her late husband the Duke of Edinburgh,” he told his YouTube viewers.Neil then acknowledged reports that Kate and William are planning on moving to Windsor to be closer to the Queen.
