‘Wanting cake & eating it!’ Harry & Meghan spark backlash for HRH perks


The Duke of Sussex continues to be embroiled in a battle over his UK security.

Ms Forwich claimed Prince Harry had also used his royal status to bend the rules on other occasions.

She continued: “He wanted the rules broken to wear a beard back at his wedding, despite Army policy regarding beards restricting them only to be grown with the commanding officer’s authority.

“Exceptions usually are only granted on medical or religious grounds or where tradition permits. So he secured a personal dispensation from Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, yet it’s never enough.”

Ms Forwich described the actions as “akin to quitting your job and expecting the company to still pay for your benefits”.

Kate Middleton slammed for taking own photographs of royal children

Kate, Princess of Wales, has released her own photographs over the years to mark significant events, including the birthdays of her three children.

Princess Kate, 40, has been criticised by a royal photographer for taking her own photographs of Prince George, Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis.

Royal photographer John Swannell, 76, even suggested the Princess is denying others the opportunity to enter the industry.

According to MailOnline, he said: “All the work I got with the royals really elevated my career; nowadays, someone like me just won’t have the chance.

Those chances should be given to young English photographers.”

However, Mr Swannell also conceded that there were some benefits to the Duchess of Cambridge taking her own snaps.

He said: “In some ways, though, Kate is probably right to do it herself.

“She’s not a great photographer, but she just snaps away, and with kids it’s easier if you know them.”

King Charles III coronation jewels worth a huge ‘£3.5billion’ could feature in ceremony

The coronation ceremony for the new King is expected to take place sometime next year.

Up to £3.5billion worth of jewels could feature in King Charles’ coronation, including the £2.5billion diamond studded Imperial State Crown.

The Imperial Crown was last seen at the funeral of Queen Elizabeth adorning her coffin alongside the sceptre and orb.

The crown, sceptre and orb are important objects for the coronation, having been seen at the Queen’s televised ceremony in 1953.

A number of royal jewels have had their value estimated by UK jewellery retailer Steven Stone.

Prince Nikolai left ‘confused and shocked’ after Queen strips titles

Prince Nikolai and his siblings were stripped of their titles after Danish Queen Margrethe decided it was “for their own good”.

Prince Nikolai has revealed he is sad, shocked and confused after his grandmother declared he and his siblings would be stripped of their regal titles, a report has claimed.

The 23-year-old Dane, who is Prince Joachim’s eldest son, will no longer be able to use the title His Royal Highness following a decision made by Amalienborg Castle.

However, Nikolai’s mother’s press secretary has questioned why the Queen could not have waited until after the Prince’s wedding day.

Prince Nikolai told the Danish newspaper Extrabladet: “My whole family and I are of course very sad.

“We are, as my parents have also stated, in shock at this decision and at how quickly it has actually gone.”

He added: “I am very confused as to why it has to happen like this.”

Zara Tindall resumes horse riding after Queen’s death

On Thursday, the Queen’s granddaughter braced herself for the wet weather and rode her gray horse, Classicals Euro Star.

The daughter of the Princess Royal wore her traditional horse-riding uniform in white and navy, paired with a helmet.

Camilla to step into Queen’s shoes as royal horse racing figurehead

The Queen Consort is set to take over from the Queen as the Royal Family’s figurehead for horse racing as the sport mourns its biggest supporter.

King Charles III has previously been an amateur jockey and has trained a number of his own thoroughbreds with Camilla at tracks such as Cheltenham and Ascot.

The King has inherited the Sandringham stud and the racing colours of the monarch which is a purple body with a gold braid, red sleeves, and a velvet black riding cap with a gold trim.

Despite this, there is a “clear plan” for Camilla to take over as the royal figurehead due to her passion for the sport.

Camilla’s role will see her handle relationships with trainers following the Queen’s most successful season last year with total winnings of £584,000.

The Queen’s bloodstock advisor John Warren was incredibly close to the Queen and they spent her final weekend together.
