    DUCHESS TOLD SHE COULD HAVE BEEN ‘NEXT MEGAN FOX’

    Ambitious Meghan Markle was once told that she could become the “next Megan Fox”.

    Elizabeth Tuke, her publicist from 2014 to 2016, urged her to try for blockbusters, claiming, “you could be the next Megan Fox,” writes Vanity Fair.

    Instead, Meghan went on a USO tour of Afghanistan, Spain, Italy, Turkey, and England. She also travelled to Rwanda to build wells for clean water; and campaigned against menstrual poverty among schoolgirls in India.

    MEGHAN MARKLE ‘MAY NEVER RETURN TO THE UK’ – ROYAL AUTHOR

    Meghan Markle may never return to the UK again, warns a royal author.

    Anna Pasternak told Vanity Fair: “I truly wonder if Meghan will ever set foot on British soil again.”

    But Peter York, coauthor of The Official Sloane Ranger Handbook, told the mag: “The ideal reconciliation will be if, in some way, the Queen can engineer it while she’s still around.

    “It would serve the monarchy to show that, as it were, brotherly love, grandmotherly love, had triumphed.”

    TITLE CLAIMS SLAMMED BY PIERS

    Piers Morgan has said that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle should be stripped of their royal titles for allegedly “trashing the institution and causing a lot of damage”.

    Discussing the royal couple, the TV favourite blasted Harry and Meghan for “weaponising” mental health and racism – adding that it was “hypocritical to do that whilst making hundreds of millions out of their royal titles.”

    He explained: “I think they should be stripped of their titles because they’re trashing the institution and causing a lot of damage in the Commonwealth where a lot of the countries are believing this racism crap.

    “They’ve become the world’s biggest victims in the middle of a pandemic. It’s pathetic. Harry needs to grow up.”

    Royal aides reportedly want Prince Harry and Meghan Markle to give up their titles after a “disgraceful” swipe at Charles’ and Philip’s parenting skills.

    LADY C WANTS PRINCE HARRY TO GIVE UP TITLES

    Lady C, a prominent critic of Harry and Meghan, said it would be "the right thing to do" for Harry to ask for his titles to be suspended.

    She told the Daily Star: "I have spoken to people, many people, who think it’s the right thing to do and it is the solution.

    "It is a dignified solution for all concerned. To humiliate no-one and protect everyone. I think it’s a humane way of solving a very regrettable situation."

    She said Harry and Meghan would still be able to "sell their brand" without their titles.

    Lady C said: "It is the best solution because it frees Harry to be able to indulge himself without consequence and without doing damage to the institution of the monarchy of the British nation, the British people and himself."

    PRINCE WILLIAM 'COULD BECOME KING BEFORE CHARLES'

    The public's preference and support for Prince William could see him take the throne instead of his dad, Prince Charles, predicts a Royal author.

    Anna Pasternak told Vanity Fair that because of Meghan and Harry's recent attacks on the Royal Family, "it may be that there is such a groundswell of public opinion against [Charles] that it’s deemed by the firm preferable for William to ascend then because he’s younger, more relatable.”

    MEGXIT TO PROMPT PARLIAMENTARY DEBATE OVER FUTURE MONARCHY – DIANE ABBOTT

    The British monarchy could drastically change as a result of Megxit and the Sussexes' complaints about members of the royal family, says an MP.

    Former shadow home secretary Diane Abbott told Vanity Fair: "I think the monarchy as we know it will last as long as the queen is alive."

    However, after she dies, “I think there will be a big public debate.

    "I think what the royal family and their advisers did with Meghan will be part of the argument for change," she added.

    Abbott told the mag that the royal debate could even reach Parliament, with a “clamour to look at the current arrangement and maybe move to a more Scandinavian monarchy, where you don’t have all the pomp and ceremony.”

    MEGHAN WOULD BECOME A PRINCESS IF SHE LOSES HER TITLE

    Meghan would become a princess if she loses her Duchess of Sussex title, points out a royal commentator.

    Daniela Elser writes in news.com.au: "Any move to strip the Duke and Duchess of Sussex of their titles following their attacks on the royal family could have a very unexpected consequence.

    "Could Her Majesty wielding her dwindling influence over the wayward couple and getting them to give up their Sussex titles actually backfire and prove to be a boon for Montecito’s most controversial rate payers?

    "For one thing, it would make the 95-year-old monarch look quite petty and vindictive.

    "The Sussexes, in turn, could bask in a sort of PR martyrdom that would strengthen their anti-Establishment, ‘speaking truth to power’ brand.

    "Even if Harry and Meghan were no longer in a position to use their Sussex titles, they still have his princely status to fall back on. He will always be Prince Henry of Wales officially and she, as his wife, has every right to style herself Princess Henry of Wales, a la the Queen’s cousin Prince Michael of Kent and his wife Princess Michael of Kent."

    WILLIAM & HARRY FOLLOWING TUMULTUOUS PATH OF DIANA AND CHARLES

    Princes Harry and William “might have represented a new generation of royal”, writes Vanity Fair.

    Instead, they “are playing out the dynamic of their parents,” said Anna Pasternak, author of The Real Wallis Simpson: A New History of the American Divorcee Who Became the Duchess of Windsor.

    The magazine’s thought-provoking article adds that, “for a long time, Harry was a merry third wheel and fun uncle to the Cambridge kids”.

    But “Kate and William getting married and having children really exposed to Harry that he, too, wanted to have a family,” said Harry’s friend and former British Army training partner Dean Stott.

    HARRY AND MEGHAN TOO ‘ELECTRIC’ – LIKE DIANA

    Meghan Markle’s initial popularity in the UK reminded Royal experts of Diana in her day, writes Vanity Fair.

    “Harry and Meghan were suddenly too electric,” said Anna Pasternak, author of The Real Wallis Simpson: A New History of the American Divorcee Who Became the Duchess of Windsor.

    She told the magazine: “They made the Cambridges seem dowdy, suburban, and rather dull. That does not go down well in the palace.”

    Vanity Fair adds that, “for continuity’s sake, the House of Windsor prefers to train the spotlight on the monarch and her direct heirs”.

    It reveals that the Cambridges are known as “Bill and Cathy”.

    OVER 45,000 PEOPLE SIGN PETITION DEMANDING PRINCE HARRY QUITS ROYAL TITLES

    More than 45,000 people have as of Tuesday night signed a petition calling for Prince Harry to give up his royal titles.

    It comes after Lady Colin Campbell blasted the Duke of Sussex – and said he should approach the Queen himself to ask her to "suspend them".

    Lady C says on her change.org petition: "The purpose is to invite Prince Harry to voluntarily ask The Queen to put his royal style, titles and rank into abeyance [suspend them]."

    This would "thereby free him from the diplomatic, political and constitutional constraints that are an inevitable part of royal rank," she adds.

    Plus, giving up his titles would "free him from the constitutional conflicts which his beliefs are creating, with all their implications at home and abroad, in particular in the UK and the US, where his articulated beliefs are in open conflict with the accepted tenets of both the UK and American Constitutions," Lady C sternly adds.

    CONTINUED: HARRY'S RETURN FOR DIANA STATUE UNVEILING IN DOUBT

    Mr Myers also told the Lorraine show: “It's been talked about for so many months now, [the Royal brothers'] deteriorating relationship.

    “And the issue is that Harry is expecting a second child – a baby girl on the way – and whether they will attend together or whether they will make separate speeches.”

    The Kensington Palace ceremony is a long-term project between the brothers, who fell out over Harry’s decision to quit as a working royal.

    Discussing the unveiling, he added: "This will be July 1st. Now, it's been long in the making, this – she would have been 60.

    “This is a big deal because the boys – William and Harry – have been working on this statue for quite a long time. I think 2017, they started putting the initial plans together. And will they, won't they be seen together?”

    HARRY'S RETURN TO UK FOR DIANA STATUE UNVEILING IN DOUBT

    Prince Harry’s return to the UK for his mother’s statue unveiling is in doubt as his wife Meghan Markle is due to give birth in the next couple of weeks, a royal expert has said.

    The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are said to “really want to be” at the event to honour Princess Diana on July 1 – on what would have been her 60th birthday.

    But Harry, 36, and Meghan, 39, may not be able to travel due to the birth of their daughter this summer.

    On ITV’s Lorraine, the Mirror’s royal editor Russell Myers said: “The things I'm being told is they still really want to be there, both of them. Certainly, William and Kate will be there.

    "But whether Harry can fly over there because the baby is imminently due this summer… it will certainly be in the next couple of weeks.”

    Alex Apati of Ladbrokes said: “Punters remain convinced Harry and Meghan will name their second child Philippa, although the latest odds suggest the pair might opt for Poppy.”

    ‘CRISIS FOR ROYALS’ – REPORT

    “The Firm’s alleged unsupportive treatment of the Sussexes has only lurched the institution into existential crisis,” according to a Vanity Fair feature on the royals.

    “The queen is a figurehead for an empire that refuses to understand that its days are gone,” said Kelechi Okafor, London-based host of the Say Your Mind pop culture podcast.

    Okafor added: “Diana came along… and then Meghan Markle came along, and everything started to fall to pieces.”

    MEGHAN AND HARRY ‘POKING THE BEAR’

    The Daily Mail’s Royal Editor Rebecca English has warned that Harry and Meghan could be “poking the bear” and that there may be a “tipping point” with the royals following Harry’s recent appearance in a documentary on mental health, Star Online reports.

    Ms English said: “The Palace have always gone with the never complain, never explain approach.

    “Can we really expect that to carry on? Surely there will be a tipping point?”

    She continued: “Buckingham Palace genuinely don’t want to get drawn into a public slanging match with Harry and Meghan,” said English.

    “That said, they are poking the bear a lot, and people are right to wonder whether there will be a tipping point.”

    DI-LEMMA FOR ROYAL BROTHERS OVER DIANA STATUE UNVEILING

    Prince Harry’s return to the UK for his mother’s statue unveiling is in doubt – leaving his brother William to go it alone.

    It's likely that Harry will be a no-show as his wife Meghan Markle is due to give birth in the next couple of weeks, a royal expert said.

    However, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex “really want to be” at the event to honour Princess Diana on July 1 – on what would have been her 60th birthday.

    DUKE AND DUCHESS OF SUSSEX HAVE 'ACUTE AWARENESS OF SUFFERING'

    Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are down-to-earth but very aware of their past struggles, says a friend.

    "Going through their own struggles has given them an acute awareness of suffering,” says James Doty, the boss of Stanford Centre for Compassion and Altruism Research (CCARE), reports Vanity Fair.

    When Doty met with Meghan and Harry at Stanford last year, “they were very down-to-earth.

    "They were thoughtful, they were inquisitive…and they seem intelligent and self-aware.

    “My sense is that they are extraordinarily engaged and this concept of compassion deeply resonates with them.”

    Meghan and Harry are both “avid readers,” adds Noble.

    JUST CALL ME MERMAID

    Before she officially became the Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle referred to herself as “Rango’s mermaid”, writes Vanity Fair.

    The magazine says that the phrase is from French-Cuban writer Anaïs Nin’s autobiographical novel The Four-Chambered Heart.

    Meghan ‘often’ quoted it while acting on Suits: “I must be a mermaid, Rango.

    “I have no fear of depths and a great fear of shallow living.”

    MEGHAN SUFFERED 'BRUTAL TEENS AND 20S

    Meghan Markle has revealed how her teens and 20s were a “brutal” experience where she struggled to be “happy” and “fit in”.

    The Duchess of Sussex, 39, admitted that as a young woman she was in a “constant battle”, which saw her “judge” herself on her weight, didn’t have anyone to eat lunch with at school, and aged 24 was told by a casting director to wear less make-up.

    On her 33rd birthday back in August 2014, on her now-defunct lifestyle blog The Tig, the former actress wrote that she had finally found happiness, but that it had taken a while to get there.

    She revealed: “My 20s were brutal – a constant battle with myself, judging my weight, my style, my desire to be as cool/as hip/as smart/as 'whatever' as everyone else.

    “My teens were even worse – grappling with how to fit in, and what that even meant. My high school had cliques: the black girls and white girls, the Filipino and the Latina girls.”
