Royal war : King Charles sobbed breaks records, unveils 2 major plans for Harry and Williams as Meghan warn husband over Camilla's intentions


King Charles is still planning a trip to Australia this autumn despite his cancer treatment – as Meghan Markle was warned over a visit to the UK by a royal expert


Charles made his most significant public appearance for an Easter Sunday service in Windsor. But the 75-year-old is still hopeful of a state visit to Australia, New Zealand and Samoa later this year. He is keen to host the annual Commonwealth Heads of Government meeting and Palace aides are starting to put together a schedule, reported the Telegraph.

Meanwhile Prince Harry is returning to the UK next month and there has been speculation about whether Meghan will join him. The Duke of Sussex will be attending a celebration of 10 years of the Invictus Games and he is also expected to visit his father. But expert Richard Fitzwilliams has given a stark warning over what would be Meghan’s first visit to the UK since 2022. He said: “If she comes there will be a huge amount of adverse publicity because of the way she has acted for the past four years.” While he added that security “wouldn’t be an issue” should she visit, Richard also claimed that Meghan has the “perfect excuse” not to come.

Prince Harry left ‘infuriated’ by King Charles’ ‘paying for Meghan’ comment
Tensions within the Royal family have been at an all-time high following Prince Harry and Meghan’s barrage of bombshell revelations in interviews, including their sit-down with Oprah Winfrey, their six-part Netflix series, and the release of Harry’s explosive memoir, ‘Spare’.

The rift between Harry, Meghan, and the rest of The Firm was apparent even before the couple decided to step back from Royal duties, as we’ve covered before. This was echoed in a book published last year which claimed that King Charles once ‘infuriated’ Harry by suggesting he might not financially support Meghan in the future.

In ‘Our King’, author Robert Jobson delves into the fraying ties between Harry and other key members of the Royal family. The book exposes a deepening divide between Harry and his brother William, with the level of animosity reportedly taking Charles by surprise.

Meghan Markle given warning as Prince Harry prepares for UK visit
Meghan Markle has been warned ahead of husband Prince Harry’s return to the UK next month by a royal expert.

The Duchess of Sussex could be set to stay in the US instead of joining Harry on the trip, but she has been rumoured to be planning to join the Duke for his visit. Now Royal expert Richard Fitzwilliams has given a stark warning over what would be her first visit to the UK since 2022.

He explained: “If she comes there will be a huge amount of adverse publicity because of the way she has acted for the past four years.” While he added that security “wouldn’t be an issue” should she visit, Richard also claimed that Meghan has the “perfect excuse” not to.

He told The Sun: “The security would be decided on a case by case basis, they would make sure the trip was secure from the point of view of the UK. I think security could be used as an excuse not to come though. Meghan has every right to come but they have been thrown out of Frogmore and for a good reason.

“Spare and the interviews around it were horrible frankly. She has the perfect excuse not to come over because Harry has lost his security case.” It comes after the couple appeared to be working as a “like-minded double act” as they made their latest public appearance.

Princess Diana had hoped brothers Harry and William would remain ‘as close as possible’
The late Princess Diana would be disappointed to see that her sons Prince William and Prince Harry were no longer “as close as possible” like she’d hoped, claimed a royal expert.

The two brothers have been distant in recent years, and largely since Prince Harry stepped back from the Royal Family in 2020 alongside wife Meghan Markle. Their relationship has also been rocked by comments made by Prince Harry since his exit including during his Netflix series, an interview with Oprah Winfrey and his 2023 autobiography Spare.

The brothers have been described by a royal commentator who recalled how they were “really close” and that their mother had always wished them to stay that way. The pair were once inseparable, and especially after their mother’s death when they were just 15 and 12.

Royal expert Charles Rae explained whilst on The Sun’s Royal Exclusive show : “They [Prince William and Prince Harry] were really, really close. And this is what makes it so sad that they’re now so far apart.” He added: “That’s what Diana always wanted, the boys to remain as close as possible, they had each other, and it was them against the rest of the world but of course now it’s not happening.”

Harry and William’s best chance at resolving feud next month revealed
Prince Harry and Prince William have been urged to reunite in private if they have any hopes of mending their broken relationship.

The pair were very close growing up, but they’ve become estranged in recent years after Harry and his wife Meghan Markle stepped down from the Royal Family. The Sussexes have since opened up about life behind palace walls and Harry didn’t hold back when it came to attacking his brother in his debut memoir Spare.

The Duke of Sussex is set to return to the UK next month to attend a celebration for the 10th anniversary of the Invictus Games. Royal expert Richard Fitzwilliams believes this will be the perfect time for him to reunite with William but said they should do it away from the public.

“The best way of resolving the rift, if it is to be resolved, is to do it privately,” he told The Sun. Richard believes the recent illnesses within the Royal Family will have played a role in Harry’s desire to return to the UK.

He said: “With Catherine and the King’s illness – that is an enormous game changer even when there are deep family rifts.” However, the royal expert insisted Harry won’t do anything “without Meghan’s consent”.

King Charles’ little known role in Prince William and Kate Middleton’s wedding revealed
King Charles played an instrumental role in the 2011 royal wedding – and offered his expertise when it came to selecting some important music for William and Kate.

The father-of-the-groom threw himself into his role before the nuptials more than a decade ago, taking it upon himself to help out on the big day. The excited pair’s near 2,000 guests arrived to organ music by Johann Sebastian Bach before an incredible orchestral selection by Edward Elgar and Sir Peter Maxwell Davies. His Highness leaned on his excellent knowledge of classical music before settling on his choices.

He explained to Alan Titchmarsh on Classic FM why he stepped in to support the couple with a key part of their wedding day, which was watched by 36.7 million in the UK alone. “I love trying to organise some interesting, I hope, pieces of music for certain occasions, particularly for weddings if people want. I know my eldest son was quite understanding and was perfectly happy for me to suggest a few pieces for their wedding,” he told the gardening expert back in 2020.

Moments before William and Kate’s Westminster Abbey wedding vows were made, their guests arrived to organ music by Johann Sebastian Bach and orchestral pieces by Edward Elgar, Sir Peter Maxwell Davies and more. Charles previously said his love of music was down to the Queen Mother. “My grandmother used to play quite a bit of music, so I would hear something there,” he recalled when talking about one of his passions. “But I suspect the first time I really became aware of it was being taken by my grandmother, Queen Elizabeth, to Covent Garden aged seven, I think.”

Meghan Markle ‘could never be forced’ to return to the UK and will have ‘final say’ for Harry
Meghan Markle will be the deciding factor in whether Prince Harry makes a return to the UK, but she ‘will not be forced’.

The couple, who stepped back from the Royal Family in 2020, live in Montecito, California, and have had a strained relationship with their royal relatives in the past following comments revealed in interviews and in Harry’s autobiography Spare. Whilst Prince Harry is said to be keen to mend the royal rift and repair his relationship with his family and potentially return to the UK, it’s been revealed that his wife will be the one who makes the decision over whether their family leaves the US.

Royal commentator Richard Fitzwilliams has explained that the former Suits actress will ultimately ‘have the final say’ on whether she and Prince Harry make a return to the UK or not.

Speaking to The Sun, the royal biographer explained: “Meghan has the say.” He then explained that Harry wants to “convey he is a very devoted family man and will put them above everything else”. The royal expert continued: “If Meghan didn’t want to come she could never be forced to. It would be extremely unlikely Harry would come over with the kids without Meghan.”

The comments come as it’s been revealed that Prince Harry will visit the UK next month to celebrate 10 years of the Invictus Games in May, and it’s likely that Meghan will not accompany him. An expert has revealed the former Suits actress is unlikely to visit the UK due to fears over safety and the ‘drama’ that would likely unfold with the Royal Family including between her and The Princess of Wales.

Meghan has made a return to the UK since the pair stepped back from their royal duties in 2020 but only on rare occasions which included Queen Elizabeth II’s funeral in 2022. However, she did not return for King Charles III’s coronation last year, which Harry attended alone.

Kate Middleton and William feel ‘intense anxiety’ at idea of taking throne, claims royal insider
Prince William and Princess Kate feel “intense anxiety” at becoming the King and Queen amid Charles’ cancer journey, a royal expert says.

The monarch continues to receive treatment for his illness, which was diagnosed in January, and, with Princess of Wales out of action due to her own cancer battle, the Royal Family has been somewhat short-handed of late. But the next monarch will be William, 41, and he’ll receive support in his duties from Kate, 42, who will also attend royal engagements in her new role. The prospect of these positions is said to be causing “intense anxiety” for the couple.

Former Vanity Fair editor Tina Brown wrote: “News of Charles’s cancer has put William and Catherine in frightening proximity to ascending the throne … The prospect of it, I am told, is causing them intense anxiety.”
