PRINCE Harry & Meghan Markle left the UK "humiliated" after the Queen REFUSED to let them film footage of her meeting with Lilibet.

The Duke and Duchess' time with the monarch — who got to see the couple’s daughter Lilibet, one, for the first time — was kept “formal” by Buckingham Palace aides.

But it has been alleged the Queen refused a request to shoot footage of her with the couple's baby daughter, Lilibet.

The Sussexes reportedly asked for her permission to take photos, which they would then use for productions as part of their deal with Netflix.

As per the Express, a source reportedly told the National Enquirer: “They were totally humiliated.

"The worst blow was Her Majesty saying ‘no chance’ to photos of her first-ever meeting with her namesake, Lilibet.

"Those shots would have been perfect for the show they’re filming as part of their $100 million Netflix deal. Netflix bosses must be very unhappy!

"[They] got the comeuppance they so richly deserve for the hurt they’ve caused the family!”

  • Qatari cash secretly given to Charles will be investigated by Charity Watchdog.

    The money, totalling around £2.5 million, was reportedly handed to the Prince in bags full of cash during one of his visits to the controversial country.

    The money came directly from the infamous Sheikh Hamad bin Jassim bin Jaber Al Thani.

    Clarence House insists all ­correct processes were followed over the donations from Sheikh Hamad bin Jassim bin Jaber Al Thani, known as HBJ.

    However, the Charity Commission may choose to interview fund trustees.

    It comes as another of Charles’s charities, the Prince’s Foundation, is being probed by police amid a cash-for-honours scandal.

    A Charity Commission spokeswoman said: “We are aware of reports about donations received by The Prince of Wales’s Charitable Fund. We will review the information to determine whether there is any role for the commission in this matter.”

  • 'It is not impossible that Ms Giuffre will find herself on the chat-show sofa'

    Amber Melville-Brown, a reputation and media lawyer with Withersworldwide, said that "it is not impossible that Ms Giuffre will find herself on the chat-show sofa."

    She said Oprah's couch has "played host to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle as they sat down very publicly to spill some private royal family beans in cozy tête-à-tête with the chat show queens and their millions of viewers.

    "Ironic if the next indentation in the sofa is made by Ms Giuffre, who is standing up for herself and others as the settlement statement says, has made such a lasting indentation in the reputation of Harry's uncle Andrew."

  • Prince Andrew’s sex attack accuser Virginia Giuffre is working with Monica Lewinsky’s PR

    Speaking on a latest episode on his YouTube channel, royal expert Neil Sean claimed: claimed: "It does appear that there's a bit of, shall we say friction, between Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, according to a very good source, and as ever we say allegedly because he would be keen to return for his brother's 40th birthday.

    "He, of course, knows about royal duty and how things would look if he doesn't return, it's as simple as that."

    He added: "[But] according to the good source, Meghan Markle is not keen at all, to go back into a room, you know some may say a hornet's nest which she did her own stirring, to spend an evening, afternoon, day whatever, that might be celebrating someone that clearly has got issues with her, and likewise, visa versa."

  • Here we go again? Meg and Harry spotted at Oprah’s £81 million mansion

  • Could Prince Andrew's accuser sit down with Oprah?

    Every royals fan remembers Harry and Meghan's bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey, an event that threatened to tear the royal family apart.

    Now, the lawyer of the woman accusing Prince Andrew has suggested her client could sit down with the chat show host.

    Amber Melville-Brown, said: “It is not impossible that Ms Giuffre will find herself on the chat-show sofa”.

    She added that Oprah had “played host to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle as they sat down very publicly to spill some private royal family beans in cosy tete-a-tetes with the chat show queens and their millions of viewers.

    “Ironic if the next indentation in the sofa is made by Ms Giuffre, who is standing up for herself and others as the settlement statement says, has made such a lasting indentation in the reputation of Harry’s uncle Andrew,” she concluded.

  • Meghan silent on Roe vs Wade decision

    Last week, the Supreme Court of the United States made the controversial decision to repeal Roe vs Wade, a precedent that granted abortion and reproductive rights to women across the country.

    Many iconic and famous American women have come out in recent days, condemning the decision, including Olivia Rodrigo and Billie Eilish.

    The duchess of Sussex is yet to comment, however, despite her usual passion for social justice causes.

    With many reporting that Meghan wishes to have a future, this has raised questions over what her silence means.

  • Is Prince Charles’ behaviour fit for a future king?

    This is a comment piece by Trevor Kavanagh

    PICTURE the scene around 2015. The high-minded Prince of Wales totes a pale-blue Fortnum & Mason carrier bag emblazoned with his royal crest and stuffed with wads of crisp, purple 500-euro notes known as “bin Ladens”.

    It is one of a series of gifts totalling three million euros which comes with the blessing of billionaire Sheik Hamad bin Jassim bin Jaber Al Thani, ex-PM of human rights-abusing Qatar, who admits his country “maybe” financed terrorist group Al Qaeda.

    Our illustrious bagman, heir to the throne, swiftly hands the cash to a flunky as part of a donation to his Prince of Wales’ Charitable Fund and it is processed smoothly through the Queen’s bank, Coutts.

    The EU stopped printing those 500-euro notes in 2019 because organised gangs and terrorists were using the large- denomination currency for criminal money laundering and bribery. Criminals could cram a fortune into hand luggage without attracting attention from the cops.

    No, this is not the plot of a Jack Higgins thriller.

    But it is serious enough for the Charity Commission watchdog to consider launching an inquiry.

    It is important to stress there is no suggestion of law-breaking by anyone involved or that anything was offered in return for the three million euros.

    But the transaction, revealed by our sister paper The Sunday Times, raises concerns over the judgment of our future king, his contact with reality and his donations from shadowy foreign sources.

  • Netflix question Sussex deal as they learn the pair were booed by Brits

    Netflix were reportedly shocked to hear that Harry and Meghan were booed by Brits upon their return to the country.

    Royal commentator, Neil Sean said on his YouTube channel: “As members of the Royal Family, you are used to being warmly welcomed at events, and any protests or unwelcome reactions are controlled by the police.

    “When they got back to the States, they worried about your perception, especially to company bosses at Netflix, Spotify, and Penguin Random House, and they have to explain exactly where those boos came from.”

    This comes as the couple set about making a $100 million docuseries set to air on Netflix.

  • Inside Ghislaine Maxwell’s ‘close’ friendship with Prince Andrew

    Ghislaine Maxwell and Prince Andrew shared a "close bond" and may have even dated, an author who wrote a biography of the sex predator has claimed.

    Nigel Cawthorne - who wrote Ghislaine Maxwell: The Fall of America's Most Notorious Socialite - said rumours had been mounting for years around the nature of the pair's relationship.

    But their long-standing friendship became the biggest royal scandal in decades when Andrew was accused of having sex with 17-year-old Virginia Giuffre - something he strongly denies.

    It is alleged his old friend Ghislaine trafficked the teen - who was a sex slave for paedophile Jeffrey Epstein - to him at her townhouse in London after a night out at Tramp.

    The infamous photo of Andrew with his hand around Virginia's waist as Ghislaine beams in the background shone a new light of scrutiny on their decades long friendship.

    "There’s always gossip about a man and a woman who are seen frequently in each other’s company," Cawthorne told The Sun Online.

    "They’d been together for an awful long time and it appears she [did] the same favour for Prince Andrew that she did for Jeffrey Epstein," said Cawthorne - who most recently wrote a biography of Virginia Giuffre.

    "In other words, trafficking a young woman to him."

    He said Ghislaine and Andrew had met at university and immediately hit it off and were often seen in each other's company at public outings.

    "It certainly went on for a very long time. They did seem very close," Cawthorne said.

  • PR expert questions whether an opera interview would be a good idea

    UK-based PR expert Mark Borkowski said: "My advice would be to make sure she has a purpose and to help people.
