Irony’ Meghan ally savages Charles over ‘suspicious’ new Lilibet plot

158

MEGHAN MARKLE’s biographer hit out at Prince Charles, accused of providing through one of his aides information regarding his first meeting with Lilibet ‘Lili’ Diana at a time the attention of the public and the media should have been on more pressing issues.

In an op-ed penned for Yahoo! News, Mr Scobie wrote: “You see, when the Prince of Wales was forced to announce via his spokesman that he will never again accept plastic bags filled with €500 notes for his charities, one of his senior aides also briefed journalists with adorable details of the heir’s first time meeting granddaughter Lilibet last month.

“(Yes, one of the same private family moments royal sources had ‘feared’ the Sussexes would leak. The irony).”

The biographer, who has at times been described as a supporter of Meghan and Harry, also called the update provided by the Palace regarding the probe into allegations of bullying made against the Duchess of Sussex by Kensington Palace staff on the same day of the release of the financial report “suspiciously timed”.

The Palace did not share the findings of the review but said its HR policies had been improved as a result of the probe.

Meghan always denied the allegations of bullying made against her.

Boris Johnson on the brink of snap election despite warnings of Queen blocking plan

BORIS JOHNSON has hinted at calling a snap election, despite warnings that the Queen may block him from doing so, reports claim.

The UK’s next general election is scheduled for Thursday May 2 2024 – but a snap election could mean voters being asked to go to the polls sooner.

A snap vote is often held when the Government needs to resolve a specific issue and is confident it will increase its majority without weeks of the usual campaigning.

Mr Johnson said he might try to force through a quickfire vote to get re-elected by the public, after his Cabinet and mutinous MPs launched a bid to boot him out of Number 10.

During an appearance before the House of Commons liaison committee on Wednesday, he was repeatedly grilled over whether he was considering going to the country in a final bid to save his premiership.

Mr Johnson was asked if he needed the Queen’s permission to call a vote.

He replied that the public don’t want “politicians to be engaged in electioneering now or in the future”.

The Prime Minister would require the monarch’s signature to dissolve Parliament and she has the power to refuse such a request if it breaches certain constitutional conventions.

Changes to rules that would allow another confidence vote in his leadership could be rushed through and he would likely be hit with further resignations.
