Meghan Markle news latest – ‘Liar’ Duchess ‘ABSOLUTELY’ did research Harry’s family, Real Housewives star claims


MEGHAN Markle was lying when she claimed not to have researched Prince Harry’s family, a Real Housewives star has claimed.

During her bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey earlier this year, the Duchess of Sussex claimed she had little knowledge of who Prince Harry was and didn’t do any research into his family background.

But Real Housewives star Leilani Dowding has revealed she simply doesn’t believe that, saying it would be “unthinkable” not to at least Google your famous future husband to find out more about him.

Leilani met her fiancé, The Cult guitarist Billy Duffy, on a blind date and thinks the Duchess would have definitely researched who she was meeting.

“Absolutely not [true] in this day and age, everyone Googles everyone,” she told the Express.

“I Googled Billy and Billy Googled me, the moment I heard that he wanted to ask me out,” she added.

“I just find it very hard to believe that in this day and age, anybody would not look somebody up if they were well known.”

  • PRINCE WILLIAM FELT MEGHAN MARKLE HAD AN ‘AGENDA’ FROM ‘EARLY STAGE’ IN RELATIONSHIP WITH HARRY, BIOGRAPHER CLAIMS

    Prince William felt that Meghan Markle had an agenda from an early stage in her relationship with Prince Harry, a royal biographer has claimed.

    Robert Lacey, author of Battle of Brothers, said the claim came from a source close to William.

    Lacy told ITV documentary, Harry & William: What Went Wrong?: “Someone close to William told me William felt from an early stage that Meghan had an agenda”.

    This is far from the first report of William’s attitude toward the Duchess of Sussex.

    In Mr Lacey’s book, he claimed that Prince William raged at Meghan’s “merciless” treatment of staff and called her “that bloody woman”.

  • KATE SELF-ISOLATES AFTER COMING INTO CONTACT WITH COVID SUFFERER

    The Duchess of Cambridge is having to self-isolate after coming into contact with someone who later tested positive for coronavirus, Kensington Palace said.

    Kate was due to spend the day with William, celebrating the 73rd anniversary of the NHS at two major events, but will now have a 10-day period at home.

    The couple had planned to attend a Service of Thanksgiving at St Paul’s Cathedral in honour of the nation’s health service, and in the afternoon host a Big Tea at Buckingham Palace for NHS staff, in their roles as joint patrons of NHS Charities Together.

    Kensington Palace said in a statement: “Last week the Duchess of Cambridge came into contact with someone who has subsequently tested positive for Covid-19.

    “Her Royal Highness is not experiencing any symptoms, but is following all relevant Government guidelines and is self-isolating at home.”

  • PRINCE HARRY FELT SILENCED BY CHARLES OVER DIANA INQUEST – LEAVING HIM LIKE A ‘VOLCANO READY TO ERUPT’, EXPERT SAYS

    Prince Harry was a “volcano ready to erupt” after feeling silenced by his dad Prince Charles over Princess Diana inquest, claims an expert. 

    In 2008, an inquest into Diana’s death concluded that she and partner Dodi Fayed had been unlawfully killed as a result of the “gross negligence” of Mercedes driver Henri Paul and the paparazzi.

    In the run up to what would have been Diana’s 60th birthday on July 1, royal expert Duncan Larcombe told The Sun how Diana’s death in 1997 had affected youngest son Prince Harry.

    The royal commentator said: “It hurt him. It hurt him badly. He was damaged by her death. A 12-year-old’s mother dies, a 12-year-old suffers obviously. 

    “But then to have 11 years, over a decade, of his mother’s death being the stuff of open discussions and theories and ‘this is what happened.’ From Prince Harry’s point of view, he was like a volcano waiting to erupt.”

  • MEG PECKED

    The Duke of Sussex won’t make up with Prince William as he “can’t afford to upset Meghan,” according to a royal biographer.

    Despite the brother’s united front at the unveiling of the statue honouring their late mother Princess Diana last week, Harry made a sharp exit after the ceremony.

    He dashed back to the US to be with his wife Meghan Markle, Archie, and newborn daughter Lilibet – which royal commentator Angela Levin suggested is because “he does what he’s told.”

    But the author isn’t holding her breath for a reconciliation, as she told The Andrew Pierce Show, “I think whatever Harry decides Meghan will change it.”

    “She will make it a negative thing to happen, and I don’t see that there will be a long-term progress there.

  • ROYAL STUMBLE

    Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s plan to trademark Archewell has hit a setback at the hands of US lawyers.

    The pair want their non-profit organisation Archewell Foundation and Spotifty podcast series Archewell Audio to be protected by company law in America – but their bid has hit a stumbling block.

    Documents were filed to the US Patent and Trademark Office by the couple, requesting sole use of the terms.

    But their bid hasn’t had a smooth outcome as the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have been told their applications need clarification if they are to be made into law, reports the Mail.

    Applying for Archewell Audio’s trademark, the pair said the company was for the “creation, development, production and distribution of podcasts, audio programmes, music, and audio books” and would create “live podcast performances, live stage performances, live music performances, and live audio-book readings”.

  • ROYAL RETURN

    PRINCE Harry is due to return to the UK in ten weeks for another Princess Di ceremony — and Meghan may join him.

    It comes after last week’s Diana statue unveiling with Prince William “failed to heal the brotherly rift”.

    Harry, 36, and William, 39, had an hour together at their mother’s memorial on Thursday followed by a brief reception in Kensington Palace.

    The event was scaled down due to Covid. Insiders say there was no time to address the row caused by Harry blasting the Royal Family from the US.

    But Harry is set to come back in September and join more than 100 friends, family and charity leaders for another memorial event. Wife Meghan, 39, could also return with him but sources say it may still be too early as it will come just two months after the birth of second child Lilibet.
