Royal Family news – Prince William's AGONY over Meghan and Harry's plan to become 'influencers' and 'cash in' on royalty

PRINCE Charles felt total "relief" at getting Prince Harry and Meghan Markle off the British taxpayers' payroll, it has been claimed.

Charles famously gave the Duke and Duchess of Sussex "a substantial sum" to start a new life in America after the runaway royals claimed they wanted to be "financially independent" and make their own fortune.

Royal accounts revealing the payment were made public just weeks after Harry shamelessly whined to Oprah Winfrey that Charles had cut him off financially following the move.

“I’ve got what my mum left me, and without that, we would not have been able to do this," Harry complained.

But it was later revealed that Charles gave Harry, Meghan, Prince William and Kate Middleton a combined total of £4.5 million during the last financial year – a sum that would leave most families set for life.

Now royal biographer Ingrid Seward has told the Daily Mail: “I imagine Prince Charles will be relieved as they will be off his payroll now, and the British public will be relieved because they can pay back what they owe now on Frogmore Cottage, so it’s a win-win situation.”

    DUKE OF SUSSEX ACCUSED ROYAL FAMILY OF 'TOTAL NEGLECT'

    The Duke of Sussex has also accused the Royals of "total neglect" in his Apple TV documentary series, The Me You Can't See.

    Buckingham Palace announced that they would investigate why Meghan wasn’t given support for mental health problems.

    Meanwhile, the couple's pleas for stories on their Archewell website have come under scrutiny, after Private Eye revealed that the couple could be using them for commercial gain. 

    For every submission there is a Terms & Conditions section which appears to state that Harry and Meg can benefit from it themselves.

    'COMPASSION' MEANS A LOT TO HARRY AND MEGHAN

    The couple have again urged their fans to submit their own personal stories on their Archewell website after launching the initiative early last month, in what could be seen as a slight to the royals.

    Writing on the website they said: “To us, compassion means more than the dictionary definition.

    "It means listening with open ears to the suffering and celebrations of communities and people beyond ourselves. 

    “It means taking the time to understand their perspectives, experiences and needs based on what they say, rather than assuming what they need." Compassion is at the core of everything we do. We hope you’ll join us in building a better world, one act of compassion at a time.”

    Meghan has previously claimed when she reached out for help with the Palace's Human Resources team, she was told because she was not a paid employee, she could not be supported.

    MEGHAN AND HARRY'S SECRET MESSAGE

    MEGHAN Markle and Prince Harry have uploaded a new cryptic message to their supporters urging them to be “compassionate” – after claiming they didn’t feel listened to by the Royals. 

    The Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s post on their Archewell website could be taken as a subtle dig at the Firm after their bombshell claims that they “didn’t act” on their concerns. 

    Meghan, 39, told Oprah Winfrey during their bombshell interview that she sought help after telling Prince Harry she "didn’t want to be alive anymore".

    But she said she had been told she would not be able to seek help as it "wouldn't be good for the institution”.

    MEGHAN MARKLE AND PRINCE HARRY QUIT ROYAL DUTY FOR LA TO BE ‘SOCIAL-IMPACT INFLUENCERS’

    Catherine St-Laurent, who quit her top role after less than a year, confirmed the couple stepped back to become “talented and creative leaders” instead.

    The Duke and Duchess vowed they’d continue with a lifetime of “service” – after the Queen confirmed they’d be stripped of their royal titles after Megxit.

    And now Ms St-Laurent, who left a plum job with Bill and Melinda Gates to work as Harry and Meghan’s chief of staff last year, has revealed their plans for the future.

    “I think they have the potential to be very influential leaders in the social-impact space. I look forward to continuing to be a part of that.” she said.

    Speaking on YouTube, royal expert and former socialite Lady Colin Campbell said the Duke and Duchess of Sussex simply will not be able to get away with everything they want to get away with.

    "Harry knows that the Queen is a very tolerant person and so he and the wife have been taking full advantage of her tolerance in the hope that they would get away with everything," she said.

    “But as we have seen and we are going to see more and more, they have not got away with everything and they’re not being allowed to get away with everything," Lady C added.

    WILL THE QUEEN VISIT WIMBLEDON ANYTIME SOON

    While the royals are usually regulars at Wimbledon, there's one key member of the family who often gives it a miss.

    The Queen has only attended the prestigious tennis tournament four times, and all have been official visits.

    It is despite the fact the monarch, 95, was patron of the All England Lawn Tennis and Croquet Club for 64 years – a role she passed over to Kate Middleton in 2017.

    According to Hello! Online, she is not a particular fan of the game, and has only ever attended in an official capacity.

    WILLIAM PRAISES NHS STAFF DURING BUCKINGHAM PALACE GARDEN PARTY

    The Duke of Cambridge has paid tribute to the “extraordinary” efforts of NHS staff during the pandemic as he hosted a Buckingham Palace party in their honour.

    William welcomed 28 specially selected health service workers – from nurses and cleaners to care workers and caterers – to the Queen’s official London home for the Big Tea event on the 73rd anniversary of the NHS. He was without wife Kate who is self-isolating after coming into contact with a Covid sufferer, Kensington Palace announced earlier.

    William made up for her absence by chatting to guests for an extra 30 minutes as he moved around five tables laid out in the palace’s garden.

    The Queen gave the Cambridges permission to plan the event at the start of the year, heralding a small return to garden parties that have been cancelled since the pandemic began.

    William told them: “I am delighted you could all come here and thank you. What you guys are doing on a daily basis is just extraordinary, I don’t know how you all keep it up, it’s been truly relentless.”

    CHARLES HAILS WREXHAM VACCINE FACTORY STAFF FOR ROLE IN FIGHT AGAINST COVID

    The Prince of Wales has praised staff at a vaccine factory for the part they have played in the battle against Covid-19.

    On Monday, Charles visited Wockhardt UK in Wrexham, North Wales, to see for himself the company’s key role in the vaccination rollout across the UK.

    Wockhardt has been instrumental in the manufacture of the Oxford/AstraZeneca vaccine and carries out the “fill and finish” stage of the process which involves dispensing the vaccine into vials ready for it to be sent out across the country.

    The firm has a manufacturing contract with the UK Government in place until August 2022.

    During his tour of the high-tech site, which employs more than 500 people, Charles donned protective gear to visit the firm’s quality control laboratory, where 300 million doses of the Oxford/AstraZeneca vaccine are currently being produced.
