Meghan Markle news latest – Film fans raging at ‘irrelevant’ Prince Harry & Duchess presenting Oscars award

PRINCE Harry and Meghan have been asked to present an award at next weekend’s Oscars leaving fans raging at the idea.

It is understood they were being lined up to reveal Best Picture — the most coveted category of the night.

A US source said: “Harry and Meghan were first approached two years ago for the ceremony but politely declined.

“Obviously they’d be a huge coup this year, and could use their appearance to make an impassioned speech of their choosing, most likely Ukraine.

“Show producers Will Packer and Shayla Cowan have lined up some amazing A-list names to take to the stage and Harry and Meghan would be the icing on the cake.

“It’s still up in the air, but in all likelihood — especially in the wake of recent publicity — Harry won’t attend.

“It would be seen as a final kick in the teeth for the royal family if he did — he’s too nervous to fly to London without police protection, but happy to stand up in front of a huge live audience at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood. Not great optics.”

Fans have been left raging at the idea with many saying that the ‘irrelevant’ couple should not be there.

One said: “I Think Prince Harry & Meghan Markle are Irrelevant In 2022.”

Another said: “If Harry attends this ceremony, but can’t be bothered to pay his respects to the grandfather that protected him, then he deserves all the criticism coming his way!”

A third said: “What an absolute joke. The #OSCARS are now virtually irrelevant but to have this pair in line to present an award just pushes them further towards the head of the irrelevance line.”

  • Spotify podcast set to be released this summer

    Meghan’s first Spotify podcast series will be launched this summer after she and Harry raised concerns about Covid misinformation on the platform.

    The couple have signed an £18million deal with Spotify but have so far only recorded one show.

    Piers Morgan laid into Meghan after the announcement of her Spotify podcast – two years after landing the £18million deal.

    The Sun columnist branded the Duchess of Sussex a “proven liar” for sticking with the streaming giant despite voicing concerns over its promotion of anti-vaxx content.

  • ‘Unspoken code’ made Meghan & Harry think royals were ‘against them’

    A royal author has claimed that a photo released by the palace in January 2020 convinced Prince Harry and Meghan Markle that the royal family were ‘conspiring against them’.

    The Queen released an official photo showing off her heirs and showed the Queen standing with son Prince Charles, her grandson Prince William and Prince George in Buckingham Palace’ s Throne Room.

    Royal author Andrew Morton claims this caused upset behind palace walls.

    “The royal couple suspected that the entire institution was conspiring against them. As they saw it, the evidence was all around them,” he writes, in an updated version of Meghan: A Hollywood Princess.

    “The unspoken code was straightforward: the future of the monarchy was assured, with or without Meghan and Harry.”

  • Harry echoes his mother’s words

    Prince Harry has echoed Princess Diana’s words as he praised the ‘amazing’ efforts of Ukrainians working for a landmine clearing charity.

    Prince Harry held a call with two women who stayed in Ukraine with Halo Trust, a charity that has been clearing military ordinance in the country since 2016.

    Princess Diana also worked with the Halo Trust in Huambo, Angola, during the 1990s.

    Before ending the call, Harry said to the two women: “I know you are going to continue doing the work that is so desperately needed for Halo, for your families and your country.

    “Thank you for being so brave and being so amazing and well done.

    “Thank you for doing it. Keep doing what you’re doing, saving lives.”

  • Harry’s ‘dilemma’ due to The Crown’s Netflix cast

    The final season of the hit Netflix series The Crown has begun casting calls for young actors who can portray Prince William and Prince Harry. 

    However, a royal commentator has given his opinion on how the brothers will be feeling about their mother, Princess Diana’s, death.

    Royal expert Duncan Larcombe told OK! in an exclusive interview: “This is a real dilemma for Harry. How can you not be so upset and angry at someone cashing in on your trauma…

    “Netflix can just make up conversations with the premise that it is a drama. They are basing it on history, but in order to make it something watchable, they are dramatising it.

    “The only two humans that know what they said to each other at the most horrendously traumatic time of their lives in them.

    “Netflix now thinks it’s acceptable to put two child actors doing it with made-up lines, what I’ve said about how William will feel.

    “Take that and double it for Harry. Harry is an emotional guy, whereas William is quite insular and shy when he needs to be.”

  • Harry ‘uncomfortable’ with celeb lifestyle

    A royal expert has claimed that Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have “very different brand images”, sparking “tensions” throughout the couple’s Royal Family life.

    Pauline Maclaran, a professor of marketing and consumer research at Royal Holloway, University of London, says that behind the “power couple” with their “fairly coherent brand image together”, there are clear difficulties the couple are having adjusting to one another’s lifestyles.

    Professor Maclaran told Express.co.uk that “individually, they have had very different brand images”.

    She added that Meghan’s brand was orientated around her status “as a (previously) minor Hollywood celebrity associated with the Suits brand”.

    Whereas Prince Harry was embedded in the “Royal Family brand” and is “not yet comfortable with Hollywood celebrity culture”.

    She said: “The mix of these different brand cultures is bound to create tensions at times and certainly did when Meghan tried to be a working royal during their time in England.”

  • Harry ‘attacked media as he feared Meghan was going to walk out’

    When Prince Harry issued his furious statement attacking the media in 2016 for their treatment of his then girlfriend Meghan Markle shortly after their relationship became public, some newspapers hit back at him for overstating his case.

    For more than five years the real reason for the statement in November 2016 has never been fully explained.

    Now, it has been claimed that Harry demanded that his office put out a statement condemning the excesses of the media while, crucially, confirming that Meghan was his girlfriend because he was afraid she would break up with him and he was panicking.

    After the Sunday Express reported at the end of October 2016 that Meghan was Harry’s new girlfriend, she was subother jected to an extraordinary level of media attention at her home in Toronto.

    The statement, written by Jason Knauf, Harry’s communications secretary, said that Meghan had been “subject to a wave of abuse and harassment”. It also condemned “the racial undertones of comment pieces” and “the outright sexism and racism of social media trolls and web article comments”.

    A source said: “It did feel like that if the palace was not able to stand up and support his girlfriend, against some of that disgusting coverage … then who in their right mind would ever consider entering into a relationship [with him] in the future? He was very exercised about some of that coverage. He definitely felt that if nothing was done to support her, then she would be, ‘I’m not sure this is what I signed up for’.” Another said: “He was freaking out, saying, ‘She’s going to dump me’.”

  • Sophie Wessex’s ‘benefit from Megxit’

    The Countess of Wessex has ‘undoubtedly benefited’ from Megxit as her profile ‘has been raised’, a royal expert claimed.

    Royal expert Russel Myers has now explained how the mother-of-two has seen her fame rise after the Duke and Duchess of Sussex moved to California last year. 

    Speaking on True Royalty TV’s The Royal Beat, Myers explained: “Are the Instagram generation going to be as obsessed with Sophie and Edward Wessex as they are with the Sussexes? Obviously not.

    “However, when you’re dealing with them… Sophie’s really across her subject matter. 

    “It’s not just for show and she has really grown into that. With the Sussexes not here, the Wessexes will undoubtedly benefit.”

    The royal expert also pointed out the similarities between Meghan and Sophie’s interests, saying: “The similarities between Sophie and Meghan are there to be seen. 

    “Sophie’s working with girls’ education, she’s done a lot of stuff about violence against females in Africa.”

  • Meghan Markle ‘to bag her own Oscar’

    Meghan Markle has been tipped for an Oscar of her own after claims she and Prince Harry will attend the awards.

    Royal commentator Richard Eden took to Twitter, and referred to the couple’s bombshell Oprah Winfrey interview.

    Mr Eden wrote: “Some might say #Meghan deserves an Oscar of her own for that #Oprah performance.”

    His tweet comes after a US source told us that: “Harry and Meghan were first approached two years ago for the ceremony but politely declined.

    “Obviously they’d be a huge coup this year, and could use their appearance to make an impassioned speech of their choosing, most likely Ukraine.

  • Meghan Markle and Prince Harry news you may have missed

    Here are the top lines from the week you may have missed:

  • Meghan’s ‘pit-bearing gesture’ which shows her confidence

    Body language expert Judi James examined Meghan’s body gestures throughout the bombshell Oprah interview, claiming it shows her confidence.

    James said: “Meghan is just sitting there looking very demure, very regal I would say, very elegant.

    “She’s got the upturned V gap underneath her armpit which shows a confidence.

    “When we feel like we’re being bombarded with difficult questions or we’re not comfortable women in particular tend to self-diminish, we bring out arms in.

    “But with Meghan she’s got that super self-controlled, confident image going on here.”

    However Judi believes that Harry’s body language tells a very different story, saying it suggests he needs that support from his wife.

    She said: “Harry on the other hand is much less self-assured.

    “He is sat diagonally and he kind of looks a lot more awkward.”

  • Meghan’s hand gesture proved ‘tide has turned’ with Harry

    A body language expert has examined the bombshell Oprah interview once again and claims that Meghan Markle and Prince Harry gave us a new insight into their relationship.

    According to body language expert Judi James, a subtle hand gesture from Meghan Markle proved Harry’s role as guide and protector is now over and the “tide has changed” in their relationship.

    Judi explains: “I think when Meghan came to the UK, Harry very much saw himself in the role of overly protective husband that knew that all hell was going to break lose in terms of press and public interest, and was desperate to protect her – albeit that she presented herself as a very confident woman.

    “But I think the tide has completely changed looking at the Oprah Winfrey clip.

    “Now she seems to have taken a much more vulnerable Harry back to the US with her and she seems to be more in the role of rescuer and protector with him.

    “This hand gesture that you can see, he’s got his hand on the chair and she’s placed her hand on top.

    “That’s almost a maternal looking gesture, it’s though it’s being used for reassurance and to let him feed off her confidence.

    “Clearly she’s friends with Oprah, she’s used to being in front of the cameras she’s an actress, but to Harry this is a whole new world that he’s being judged by and being asked to perform.

    “And it sounds from the clip as though he’s going to rip his soul out in front of the camera and tell us about everything.”

  • Kate & William’s ‘crucial side mission’

    Kate Middleton and Prince William have been handed a side mission for their royal tour to the Caribbean, a royal commentator has claimed.

    Speaking to True Royalty’s The Royal Beat, Hello! Royal Editor Emily Nash said: “The official line is the Cambridges are going on tour to thank people for their support for the Queen over her 70-year reign.

    “And they’ve always said any decision about becoming republics is for the people of whichever country it is.

    “But it is a charm offensive, and it’s a way of re-establishing ties, particularly after this two-year hiatus in royal travel.”

    The Queen’s royal diary has been reworked by Buckingham Palace in support of the monarch’s workload, a source has claimed.

    Royal sources said senior royal aides at Buckingham Palace have accepted that the “frailties that come with living a long life” are finally catching up with her.

    One source told The Telegraph: “It’s about pacing her diary now.

    “She has said herself that she is as committed to service as ever, but that will have to take a slightly different form.”

  • ‘Rebel Wilson is right, Harry the Prince of Woke is just a bad joke’

    This is a comment piece by Karren Brady

    PRINCE HARRY left this country to start a new life in America, where he set himself up as a moral crusader.

    Ever since, he has preached about mental health and people having courage, caring for each other and being inspirational.

    But at a time when war is raging in Ukraine, His Royal Wokeness has become something of a laughing stock.

    Even the family Harry dumped have shown their subtle — but powerful — support for the brave Ukrainians, with the Queen and Kate carefully choosing flowers and clothes that represent the blue and yellow of the Ukrainian flag.

    Meanwhile, in La La Land Harry has been wearing ORANGE — from head to foot.

    But he made it clear from the start what his new role was. Harry is now a laughing stock.

    You don’t need to take my word for it. He was one of the best jokes at the Baftas this week.
