Meghan Markle latest – 'Hypocrite' Duchess slammed for using royal titles she 'doesn't care about' to promote herself

MEGHAN Markle has been slammed for repeatedly using royal titles she claims not to care about as a way of promoting herself.

She used her title the Duchess of Sussex in the title of her new children's book – a move that has left some royal commentators "a little confused".

Speaking on Us Weekly's Royally Us podcast, host Molly Mulshine said: "The one thing I did find interesting was that Meghan used her title on the front cover. It says 'by the Duchess of Sussex'. I was surprised by that.

"Just because she said in the interview that she doesn't care about the pomp and pageantry… She said titles are not important to her"

Co-host Garibaldi agreed, adding "That was a little confusing. "Do you want to be a Duchess or do you not want to be a Duchess?

""You've got to make up your mind," she added.

    RUN THE WORLD

    Meghan Markle “likes to be Queen Bee” and is “jumping into everything she can” with multiple million-dollar deals, a royal expert has said.

    The Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s Archewell Foundation yesterday announced a multi-year global partnership with Procter & Gamble.

    The announcement follows a string of lucrative deals firmed up by the couple in recent weeks, including the launch date of Harry’s mental health series with Apple TV+ and Meghan’s upcoming book, The Bench.

    But Royal expert Angela Levin said the couple could be spreading themselves too thin, with Meghan “jumping in wherever she can”.

    'FOGGY DEAL'

    Meghan Markle today came under fire for her new Procter & Gamble deal, with a royal expert suggesting the Duchess will need more than just woke words for her latest venture.

    Royal expert Angela Levin said Meghan and Harry will need to work hard to pull off such change.

    "What they are doing is taking on a huge amount of responsibility," she told The Sun Online.

    "I don’t mean actually the work but you’ve got to give back – for the money you earn you have to give back something. You can’t just keep using the words gender equality and compassion.

    "You’ve got to be able to do things, not say what will be done or how they will be helping and not actually do the practical stuff. It’s all about telling everybody else what to do and not very much quietly or thoroughly doing it."

    ROYAL TRIBUTE

    Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are eagerly awaiting their new arrival and it looks like they could name their daughter after Prince Philip in a sweet tribute.

    Harry's grandfather the Duke of Edinburgh died aged 99 last month, with Harry returning to the UK from America to attend his funeral alongside brother Prince William and dad Prince Charles.

    As Meghan prepares to give birth this summer, bookies have predicted that she and Harry could settle on naming their daughter after Philip – with Philippa now the top name of choice.

    According to bookies' odds by Ladbrokes, Philippa has taken over past frontrunners with Royal nods.

    Odds on Harry and Meghan naming their daughter Philippa have been slashed to 3/1, pushing it in front of Diana – the name of Harry's late mother – which sits at 5/1.

    NEW BABY COULD HEAL THE RIFT, SAYS ROYAL EXPERT

    Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's baby girl will bring the royal family back together, but the Queen will have to meet her on Zoom, an expert has said.

    The newest arrival of the royal family is due later in the summer but as the couple live in California it's unclear when the Queen will see her great-granddaughter in person.

    Nick Bullen, editor-in-chief of True Royalty TV told Us Weekly: “The birth of a baby is always a great unifier for a family and I’m sure all sides of the Sussex family will want to celebrate with Harry and Meghan.

    “I think you can be absolutely certain that Harry and Meghan will be jumping on a Zoom call to introduce Her Majesty to her 11th great-grandchild.”

    MEG’S MILLIONS

    When Meghan Markle joined the Royal family, her style seemed instantly accessible, with a wardrobe that mixed high end fashion with the affordable and sustainable – especially when it came to jewellery.

    But the latest picture of the Duchess of Sussex – wearing £25,000 worth of gold – suggests she also has an eye for the blisteringly expensive.

    Appearing at the Vax Live conference over the weekend, where she discussed the effect of the pandemic on women, she wore a £5,000 Cartier bracelet, Princess Diana’s £17,800 Cartier watch and a £2,361 gold bangle.

    The mum-to-be also included her usual message piece – a women’s power necklace at the more affordable price of £102 – but the Caroline Herrera dress was no snip at £1,200.

    MEGHAN'S MAKEUP ARTIST SAYS DIVERSITY AT HER WEDDING 'CHANGED THE WORLD'

    The talent behind Meghan Markle's no-makeup look has said diversity at her wedding to Prince Harry changed the world.

    When asked if doing Meghan's makeup at her wedding impacted his career or provided him a platform to represent the AAPI (Asian American and Pacific Islander) community, Martin said: "My participation in it as an Asian American, I didn't really think about it."

    "For me, it was just helping my friend feel as beautiful and comfortable on her wedding day.

    "I've never thought about it in that context, but now you bring that up, what an incredible opportunity to just let everyone know or just show people, Hey, we are a global society. "

    According to reports from IBT, he continued to remark "Anything is possible".

    And according to sources, the young royal, who now has quite the vocabulary, “speaks with a distinct American accent” just like his mum Meghan, Mirror reports.

    Since Meghan and Harry moved to California last year, royal fans haven’t seen much of their son Archie.

    The brothers will stand together when the Diana memorial is revealed in July.

    NO BABY SHOWER FOR MEGHAN AND HARRY'S SECOND CHILD

    Meghan Markle has reportedly opted to forgo a baby shower for the birth of her second child.

    Before Archie's birth in May 2019, Meghan celebrated his impending arrival with a lavish New York City baby shower thrown by her friend Serena Williams.

    However, according to US Weekly reports, Meghan didn't feel a big baby shower with gifts was appropriate in the light of the Covid-19 crisis.

    A source told the magazine: "She and Harry have been so involved with humanitarian issues, they both feel their time and resources can be used for a better purpose".

    WHERE WILL THE SECOND BABY BE IN LINE TO THE THRONE?

    Meghan and Harry’s second baby will be eighth in line for the throne behind Prince Charles, Prince William, Prince George, Princess Charlotte, Prince Louis, Prince Harry, and baby Archie.

    The baby will be Prince Charles's fifth grandchild and the Queen and Prince Philip's 10th or 11th great-grandchild, depending on if the baby arrives before or after Zara Tindall's new baby.

    And like her brother, the newborn is expected to be styled with the surname Mountbatten-Windsor, rather than be called Princess or another of her father Harry's titles.

    WHAT DID MEGHAN AND HARRY SAY ABOUT THEIR SECOND BABY?

    The Duchess of Sussex, 39, told the chat show host, 67, that they chose to find out if the latest addition would be a boy or girl – rather than wait like they did with Archie.

    Oprah asked Harry how he felt learning he would have a daughter, and Harry gushed: “Amazing. Just grateful. 

    “To have any child, any one or any two, would have been amazing. But to have a boy and then a girl, what more can you ask for. We’ve got our family—the four of us and our two dogs.”

    Meghan was asked if their upcoming child would be their last, reaffirming: "Done. Two is it."

    ROYAL GAFFE

    Good Morning Britain's Alastair Campbell was forced to apologise after "accidentally announcing the death of the Queen" in a HUGE live TV blunder today.

    The mortified presenter issued the apology as he explained he meant to say her husband Prince Philip, who sadly passed away last month.

    As he and co-host Susanna Reid interviewed Vinnie Jones on the breakfast show, Alastair said: "We've talked a lot about Prince Philip after the death of the Queen…"

    Moments later, he'd clearly been made aware of his mistake as he interrupted the chat to say: "Can I just say, Susanna, I think I may have accidentally announced the death of the Queen.

    "I meant Prince Philip."

    WHY THE ROYALS ALWAYS CARRY A HANDBAG OR CLUTCH BAG

    We have revealed the reasons why The Queen and The Royal Family always carry a handbag or clutch bag.

    While the Queen uses it to send signals to her staff  Kate Middleton prefers a clutch bag she can hold with both hands when she wants to avoid awkward encounters with people who may try to shake her hand.

    In contrast, Meghan has been seen favouring a crossbody bag style, meaning she is free to shake hands with crowds and accept gifts.
