Royal Family news – Bank Holiday boost with Brits to get FOUR DAY weekend to celebrate Queen's 70-year Platinum Jubilee

THE Queen has been warned that Prince Harry will almost certainly drop more "truth bombs" in the coming weeks.

Although Buckingham Palace have officially kept a dignified silence over Harry's relentless recent attacks on the Royal Family, behind the scenes things are understood to be far less cheerful.

While Prince Charles is widely described as being devastated by Harry's attacks on his ability as a father, the Queen is also said to be shocked and upset at the way in which Harry is so openly attacking his relatives.

But according to the Royally Us podcast hosts Molly Mulshine and Christina Garibaldi, the worst might still be to come.

"What's next? What other truth bombshells is he going to drop on us?," Mulshine said during a recent episode.

"Because, you know, they have this podcast, he has this big deal with Netflix, so this is going to be going on for a while, so I don't know.

"There's definitely going to be a lot of things coming out and people want to hear him speak so I think he's going to give the public what they want so he's going to keep talking."

    HOW TO GET NINE DAYS OFF DURING QUEEN'S JUBILEE

    Workers can get NINE days off work in a row if they book just three days’ worth of holiday in a Queen’s Jubilee Bank Holiday loophole.

    Buckingham Palace today confirmed Brits will be treated to a four-day weekend from June 2 to June 5 next year to mark the Queen’s 70th year on the throne.

    The Palace said the extra days off will "provide an opportunity for communities and people to come together and celebrate the historic milestone".

    But Brits can take advantage of the extra two days off by simply booking holiday for the three days before the new Bank Holiday dates.

    This means if they book off Monday, May 30, Tuesday, May 31, and Wednesday, June 1 – they will get NINE days off in a row.

    This is because they will already have the weekend off before the days they book as holiday.

    MEGXIT TO PROMPT PARLIAMENTARY DEBATE OVER FUTURE MONARCHY – DIANE ABBOTT

    The British monarchy could drastically change as a result of Megxit and the Sussexes’ complaints about members of the royal family, says an MP.

    Former shadow home secretary Diane Abbott told Vanity Fair: “I think the monarchy as we know it will last as long as the queen is alive.”

    However, after she dies, “I think there will be a big public debate.

    “I think what the royal family and their advisers did with Meghan will be part of the argument for change,” she added.

    Abbott told the mag that the royal debate could even reach Parliament, with a “clamour to look at the current arrangement and maybe move to a more Scandinavian monarchy, where you don’t have all the pomp and ceremony.”

      DENISE WELCH SLAMS "DISGRACEFUL" PIERS MORGAN COMMENTS ON MEGHAN MARKLE AND NAOMI OSAKA

      Hollyoaks star Denise Welch didn't hold back as she called Piers Morgan out for silencing mental health sufferers such as Naomi Osaka and Meghan Markle.

      The 63-year-old, who also starred in Coronation Street and Waterloo Road, took to her official Instagram account to share a scathing rant over Piers Morgan's latest column for MailOnline.

      Sharing a print screen of his article to her 230,000 followers, Piers' headline read: "Narcissistic Naomi's cynical exploitation of mental health to silence the media is right from the Meghan and Harry playbook of wanting their press cake and eating it."

      Denise took to the caption of the photo to pen her own thoughts on how "disgusted" she was left by Piers words.

      The Loose Women star penned: "Piers Morgan publicly berating a brilliant young woman for prioritising her mental health AGAIN!!!

      "Anyone who has suffered depression and anxiety knows that life becomes unbearable and you will do anything to stop the pain.

      "Piers also proves why so many people suffer in silence because of fear of being called ‘an arrogant narcissistic spoiled brat’. This man is a f…..g disgrace."

      MEGHAN MARKLE AND PRINCE HARRY HAVE ‘LONG-TERM DAMAGE’ WITH QUEEN

      Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have created 'long-term damage' with the Queen and the Royal Family after their Oprah interview bombshells, an expert has said.

      The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, who claimed they were mistreated by the family knew the aftermath of the exclusive interview "would be difficult".

      Speaking on Channel 5 documentary Harry and Meghan: Two Troubled Years, royal expert Katie Nicholl said: "The damage really has been long term.

      "I think they went in knowing it was going to be very difficult for the Royal Family to have any sort of comeback.

      "They certainly weren't going to sit down and address every single point and accusation made in the interview."

      BONE CHILLER

      Human remains have been found just yards from Harry and Meghan’s £11million mansion.

      The bones from a small adult were unearthed by workers doing landscaping on an estate just along the road.

      They are thought to be those of a Native American and date back centuries.

      Their age will be determined by a forensic anthropologist called in by police.

      Landscapers made the discovery last week while working at an estate in Riven Rock Road in Montecito, California.

      MEGHAN WOULD BECOME A PRINCESS IF SHE LOSES HER TITLE

      Meghan would become a princess if she loses her Duchess of Sussex title, points out a royal commentator.

      Daniela Elser writes in news.com.au: “Any move to strip the Duke and Duchess of Sussex of their titles following their attacks on the royal family could have a very unexpected consequence.

      “Could Her Majesty wielding her dwindling influence over the wayward couple and getting them to give up their Sussex titles actually backfire and prove to be a boon for Montecito’s most controversial rate payers?

      “For one thing, it would make the 95-year-old monarch look quite petty and vindictive.

      “The Sussexes, in turn, could bask in a sort of PR martyrdom that would strengthen their anti-Establishment, ‘speaking truth to power’ brand.

      “Even if Harry and Meghan were no longer in a position to use their Sussex titles, they still have his princely status to fall back on. He will always be Prince Henry of Wales officially and she, as his wife, has every right to style herself Princess Henry of Wales, a la the Queen’s cousin Prince Michael of Kent and his wife Princess Michael of Kent.”

      PALACE ‘IN A BIND’ OVER PRINCE HARRY AND MEGHAN

      Strategically, the palace is stuck in a bind over the Sussexes, says a royal commentator.

      Daniela Elser writes in News.com.au: “They can leave the couple and their titles untouched, or they can push them to kowtow to their whims and only strengthen the couple’s US cause.”

      Her comments are in response to Lady Colin Campbell’s online petition for Prince Harry to quit his titles. It’s already had over 45,000 signatures.

      Elser explains that if they did lose their Sussex title, “they still have his princely status to fall back on” and Meghan would have “every right to style herself Princess Henry of Wales.

      “In short, this whole situation is something of a win/win for the renegade couple.”

      PALACE PARTY

      Brits will get an extra Bank Holiday in a four-day Platinum Jubilee bonanza to celebrate the Queen's 70 years on the throne, Buckingham Palace revealed today.

      Her Majesty, 95, will be treated to a special celebration involving 1,400 parading soldiers, 200 horses and 400 musicians to celebrate her 70th year on the throne in June 2022.

      It is the first time any British monarch has reached this historic milestone.

      The government already confirmed Brits will be treated to a four-day weekend to mark the special occasion.

      But the Palace today said the extra days off will "provide an opportunity for communities and people to come together and celebrate the historic milestone".

      EXHIBITION TO BE LAUNCHED TO CELEBRATE PRINCE PHILIP’S LIFE

      An exhibition to celebrate Prince Philip’s life and 73-year marriage has been signed off by the Queen.

      Her Majesty agreed to release treasured artefacts for a money-spinning display originally planned to mark the Duke’s centenary.

      The Queen, 95, will not open the Windsor Castle event which will showcase their wedding and family and his naval career, charity work and love of carriage racing. She will be offered a private tour.

      The Duke of Edinburgh died last month aged 99 and it is hoped the demand to see his possessions will swell Royal Collection Trust coffers.

      The RCT, which runs royal tourism for the Queen, has lost millions during Covid and has cut hundreds of jobs. An insider said: “They are expecting massive numbers of visitors.”

      WILLIAM ‘WILL NEED BROTHER’S SUPPORT WHEN HE’S KING’

      When he eventually becomes King, William will need far more support from his brother, Prince Harry, says a report.

      William will have “arguably one of the most important jobs in the world, and he’s going to need the support of the person who has been his right-hand man since he was a child,” said Myka Meier, founder of Beaumont Etiquette.

      She told Vanity Fair: “There’s nobody that knows him quite like Harry.”

      HARRY AND MEGHAN TOO ‘ELECTRIC’ – LIKE DIANA

      Meghan Markle’s initial popularity in the UK reminded Royal experts of Diana in her day, writes Vanity Fair.

      “Harry and Meghan were suddenly too electric,” said Anna Pasternak, author of The Real Wallis Simpson: A New History of the American Divorcee Who Became the Duchess of Windsor.

      She told the magazine: “They made the Cambridges seem dowdy, suburban, and rather dull. That does not go down well in the palace.”

      Vanity Fair adds that, “for continuity’s sake, the House of Windsor prefers to train the spotlight on the monarch and her direct heirs”.

      It reveals that the Cambridges are known as “Bill and Cathy”.

      PRINCE WILLIAM DOESN’T WEAR HIS WEDDING RING – HERE’S WHY

      The wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton 10 years ago was one of the most-watched events of the decade.

      But, some eagle-eyed social media users have noticed something different about Wills and Kate – while the Duchess proudly displays her sparkler on her left hand, the Duke’s wedding ring is nowhere to be seen.

      Ditching tradition, it seems that William isn’t a fan of jewellery at all.

      After the royal pair got hitched in 2011, a spokesperson from the palace revealed the reason why the Prince decided to go ringless.

      They explained: “It is simply down to personal preference. It was something that the couple discussed but Prince William isn’t one for jewellery.”

      DIANA BROKE DOWN IN TEARS AFTER SECRETLY LISTENING INTO BASHIR CALL

      Princess Diana burst into tears after secretly listening in to a phone call in which disgraced Martin Bashir heaped scorn on her, sobbing: “How could he be like that?”

      The five-minute call to Kensington Palace — in which Bashir crudely demanded to know the princess’s whereabouts and which boyfriends she was meeting in private — left her friendship with the BBC journalist in tatters.

      Former butler Paul Burrell, who took the call as Diana listened in, said she fled the room in horror after realising Bashir’s friendliness towards her had been fake.

      Revealing for the first time the details of the 1996 conversation, he said it was the moment Diana decided to cut her poisonous former ally out of her life.

      ‘DISGRACEFUL’ SWIPE AT PRINCE CHARLES

      Royal aides reportedly want Prince Harry and Meghan Markle to give up their titles after a “disgraceful” swipe at Prince Charles’s and Prince Philip’s parenting skills.

      It came after the Duke of Sussex suggested he had been failed by his dad after he claimed he moved Archie and Meghan to the USA to “break the cycle” of “genetic pain” from his own childhood. 

      Senior courtiers told the Mail on Sunday that the Duke’s attack had prompted a sense of “bewilderment and betrayal” in the palace. 

      Prince Harry’s documentary series with Oprah Winfrey was released earlier this month on Apple TV.

      Harry had previously claimed that he had to make deals with Netflix and Spotify after revealing to Oprah he had been cut off by the Royal Family following Megxit.

      ‘SERIOUS DOUBT’ OVER HARRY VISITING UK FOR DIANA STATUE UNVEILING

      Prince Harry’s return to the UK for the unveiling of Diana’s statue has been in “serious doubt” for weeks after the royal rift intensified, royal experts have claimed.

      It was previously thought that William and Harry would unite at the exhibition of their mum’s statue next month – after months of tension between the pair.

      Others said the pair would give separate speeches when their mum’s statue is unveiled, highlighting their ongoing rift.

      Phil Dampier, author of Royally Suited: Harry and Meghan In Their Own Words, told the Sun Online: “I personally don’t think Meghan will return to the UK.

      “And there must now be a serious doubt as to whether Harry will come over for the unveiling of a statue for Princess Diana on what would have been her 60th birthday in July.”

      ROYAL WRITING SECRETS REVEALED… MORE

      Handwriting expert Tracey Trussell – founder of Handright and a graphologist who specialises in handwriting analysis – has given her verdict when it comes to the Royal Family.

      PRINCE HARRY

      While Harry’s handwriting might look somewhat similar to his older brother, what it says about him couldn’t be more different.

      MEGHAN MARKLE

      Looking at Meghan’s handwriting, Tracey claims that it shows the Duchess of Sussex, who is pregnant with her and Harry’s second child, is both “romantic and reactionary”.

      PRINCESS EUGENIE

      For Princess Eugenie her pen work is said to reveal qualities in her that are “philanthropic” and “entrepreneurial”.

      CAMILLA PARKER BOWLES

      Looking at Camilla’s handwriting, it’s not too far a cry away from that of The Queen’s and Tracey suggests it shows that Prince Charles’ wife is a “woman-of-the-world”.

      ROYAL WRITING SECRETS REVEALED

      Handwriting expert Tracey Trussell – founder of Handright and a graphologist who specialises in handwriting analysis – has given her verdict when it comes to the Royal Family.

      THE QUEEN

      Deciphering a note from 2002 where The Queen had signed her name and the date, Tracey claims her handwriting reveals she is “majestic, stoical and dignified”.

      DUCHESS OF CAMBRIDGE

      The Duchess of Cambridge is as elegant with her handwriting as she is her fashion choices and proved so while writing down her favourite childhood memory – “boulder hopping in the Lake District”.

      PRINCE WILLIAM

      William’s scrawl might be with less grace, but according to Tracey it hints to some solid characteristics, including being “self-reliant and experiential”.
