Boris stopped from dragging Queen into ‘full-blown constitutional crisis’ with snap poll
A new book has claimed that a secret operation had been put in place in order to “stop Boris Johnson using” the Queen to call a snap election.
The Fall Of Boris Johnson by Sebastian Payne will document the former Prime Minister’s resignation from Downing Street.

Prince William dubbed ‘self-righteous’ and ‘spoilt little *****’ by friend
A source has said that Prince William can be “self-righteous” and a “spoilt little *****” at times, although he has the Royal Family’s interests at heart.
The claim was made over the Prince’s reaction to the publication of his brother Prince Harry’s memoir, due to hit the shelves on January 10.
The book, called Spare, is expected to have a big impact on senior members of the Firm, and William is reported to be “appalled” by his brother’s behaviour.
King might be able to remove Duke and Duchess of Sussex titles with new proposed bill
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex could be stripped of their royal titles if a new private members’ bill achieves success in Parliament.
The proposed bill would enable the King to remove titles within the Royal Family at his own discretion or following a formal recommendation from the government.
The news comes after the King requested an amendment to the Regency Act in order to install Princess Anne and Prince Edward as Counsellors of State.
Under the current guidelines, Prince Harry and Prince Andrew have remained Counsellors of State, although neither royal figure has been involved with official royal duties for some time.
Meghan Markle needs ‘more quid’ to be US President as royal ‘bruises quite easily’
Meghan Markle could have her eyes on the US presidency after being hailed as the top choice for Democrats, it has been claimed.
The Duchess of Sussex has previously lobbied Senators to advocate for paid leave for new parents in the US. But royal expert Robert Jobson has pointed out previous presidents have been multi-billionaires.
Royal author Tessa Dunlop told TalkTV: “Historically, America has always been envious of the tinsel and the mystique that comes with our Royal Family.
“They have in effect an elective kinship, Meghan’s got the prince and now she just needs to get herself into position to get into the White House.”
Royal Family: Harry and Meghan’s Netflix series to air ‘next month’ in major blow
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s highly-anticipated Netflix series has been the subject of a lot of controversy, and its release date was pushed back following the backlash to The Crown.
However, it’s been reported the docu-series will actually hit screens as soon as next month. Series five of The Crown sparked a strong reaction from people who claimed it didn’t make clear enough that events were dramatised for the Netflix show, and many opposed some of the topics covered involving the Royal Family.
Harry and Meghan’s show was rumoured to have been pushed back to 2023 in light of the backlash, but there is now reason to believe the show will hit screens next month.
