Meghan and Harry’s new Montecito nickname laid bare as royal spotted out and about


Meghan Markle and Prince Harry moved into a palatial $14.7 million home in the Californian enclave within months of stepping down from their working roles within the Royal Family.

The article read: “Links taking readers to the Duke and Duchess of Sussex had previously been placed halfway down the page – below other senior royals and above others.

“But the webpage was updated after the death of Queen Elizabeth last month, with the Riven Rock twosome having now been moved below the likes of Princess Alexandra, and the Duke and Duchess of Gloucester, relatives of the late King George V.”

The nickname is one of a list Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have been labelled with since they stepped down from royal duties in 2020.

Meghan and Harry’s head of audio ‘quits’ Archewell after first series of Archetypes

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have lost yet another senior worker at their company, it is reported. Rebecca Sananes has quit as head of audio at Archewell after just 18 months in the role, according to the Daily Telegraph and US gossip website Page Six.

Author Giles Brandeth claimed in his latest book, Elizabeth: An Intimate Portrait, royal staff has taken to avoid mentioning the Duke and Duchess of Sussex and instead uses an apt description when discussing the pair.

Mr Brandeth wrote: “Whenever the names of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex come up in court circles, courtiers flinch and change the subject or refer to them as ‘persons who live overseas’.”

He also suggested that if “Harry and Meghan are mentioned to members of the royal family, they simply smile briefly and say ‘we wish them all the best’ and nothing else.”

The Sussexes’ relationship with the Royal Family has been frosty since before they announced their plan to seek financial independence away from the monarchy.

And relations could fracture further upon the release of Duke and Duchess’s Netflix documentary Harry&Meghan later this week.

The pair sparked an uproar after the trailer of the project was shared whilst Prince William and Kate, the Princess of Wales visited Boston in the run-up to the Earthshot Prize.

But a further clip released on Monday has put into question whether the pair could ever mend the break with the Royal Family.

In the new clip, Prince Harry speaks of the “pain and suffering” experienced by women marrying into the Firm as he claimed attitudes towards him and Meghan changed after their wedding.

The first three episodes of the six-part series are due for release on December 8, with the latter part of the project dropping on the streaming platform on December 15.

Royal commentator Jonathan Sacerdoti forecasted the main theme of the project predictably will be Harry and Meghan facing “great hardships”.

He told “So far the trailers suggest the programme will be entirely as predicted: a semi-scripted style documentary in which no challenging questions are asked of those interviewed.

“It seems the show will pursue the idea that the couple suffered great hardships and portray them as victims of racism, and worse, within the Royal Family.

“I think that’s what we’ve all expected since they announced the deal with Netflix. The trailers so far haven’t disappointed.”

Mr Sacerdoti added: “The funny thing is that if one set out to make a comic, spoof version of the Meghan and Harry reality show, it’d look the same. I think that’s what they describe as ‘beyond parody’.
