Meghan Markle latest news: Prince Harry & Duchess may 'make Hollywood MOVIES' as Meg furious over Piers Morgan Ofcom win

PIERS Morgan has WON his Ofcom complaint against Meghan Markle in the row which led to him quitting Good Morning Britain.

The media watchdog confirmed Piers, 56, was simply giving his opinions on the couple's bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey, before he stormed off set live on air following publicly criticism from a co-presenter.

Meghan and Harry personally lodged a direct complaint against Piers to ITV and Ofcom against his outburst and Piers left the ITV show as a result.

The rant also triggered the most public complaints to the regulator in a decade – with more than 57,000 lodged against him.

Meanwhile, the Sussexes close pal Omid Scobie has hinted the couple could have plans to make a movie in the pipeline as they aim to conquer the US.

Former actress Meghan Markle could be brushing up Prince Harry's stage skills as the Finding Freedom author thinks it is "only a matter of time before it comes to life".

    MEGHAN MARKLE ‘MORE DETERMINED THAN EVER’ TO GET THE LAST WORD & SPEAK OUT AFTER PIERS MORGAN OFCOM VICTORY, EXPERT SAYS

    This is a Sun exclusive.

    Furious Meghan Markle is said to be"more determined than ever," to get the last word and speak out after Piers Morgan's Ofcom victory.

    This will make the divide "even deeper" between the Sussexes and the Royal Family, according to an expert.

    Speaking about Meghan's next move, writer and broadcaster Adam Helliker told The Sun Online: "I think she’s going to feel more determined and it will up her game so to speak. 

    "She will convince all her followers that this is how Britain operates. I think she will see it as yet another method of protecting the Royal Family.

    "And it just kind of – the divide is getting ever deeper. And the longer it goes on, the rift, you just wonder, how on earth can they ever come back from that?

    "They will up their game in terms of putting out more statements, being more independent and just pushing away even further."

    LADY LOUISE WINDSOR FACES BIG ROYAL DECISION AS SHE APPROACHES 18TH BIRTHDAY

    Lady Louise is the daughter of Prince Edward and Sophie. In two months she will turn 18, and when she reaches the milestone she will decide if she wants to use the HRH title.

    The Countess of Wessex told the Sunday Times in 2020 that: “we try to bring them up with the understanding they are very likely to have to work for a living.

    “Hence we made the decision not to use HRH titles.

    "They have them and can decide to use them from 18, but I think it’s highly unlikely.”

    Louise's brother, Viscount Severn will also face the same decision when he celebrates his 18th birthday. He is only 13 so has some time to make up his mind.

      PIERS MORGAN SAYS QUEEN OF WOKE MEGHAN MARKLE CAN’T SILENCE US ANYMORE – IF SHE CAN HAVE HER VIEWS THEN I CAN HAVE MINE

      The ex-GMB host has been cleared by Ofcom after accusing Meghan of making up claims in her and husband Harry’s interview with Oprah Winfrey that a senior royal had been racist, and that Meghan’s mental health had suffered.

      Piers called her a “whiny, forked-tongue actress” and said the report was a “resounding defeat for Princess Pinocchio”.

      He told The Sun: “The woke brigade think they can vilify, shame, silence and get fired anyone who has an opinion they don’t like.

      “Meghan Markle is the queen of this culture, who personally sought to have me lose my job — and succeeded.

      “Why are she and Prince Harry entitled to have their opinion but I’m not entitled to mine?”

      PIERS MORGAN SNUBS MEGHAN IN TWEET

      Despite his OFCOM win yesterday, Piers took to Twitter to add more fuel to the fire.

      He wrote: "Amid all the debate about Meghan Markle’s mental health, has anyone given a thought for what the Queen’s had to endure this year as the Sussexes have continually trashed her family & the Monarchy while she lost and mourned her beloved husband of 73 years? Just disgraceful."

      MEG HER MARK

      Piers Morgan’s OFCOM controversial ruling, which has also been hailed as a huge win for freedom of speech, is said to have infuriated Meghan and her camp – including her media mouthpiece, Omid Scobie.

      The royal biographer shared his opinion of the decision and suggested the Human Rights Act could have been broken after the Duchesses claims that she suffered with her mental health were dismissed live on air.

      In a tweet, Scobie said he “questioned” Ofcom’s verdict as “freedom of expression” under the 1988 Act is subject to the “protection of health or morals.”

      “While everyone should be free to express opinion on public figures, discrediting a person’s mental health issues on TV reinforced a dangerous stigma and put others at risk,” he added.

      But Piers proved he is back with a vengeance after clearing his name – and tore the Sussexes pal to shreds by telling him: “Pipe down, Lickspittle.”

      His savage response continued: “You just trashed the Queen in your garbage book without a care for the mental health of a 95-year-old woman grieving the loss of her husband.”

        WHAT DEALS HAVE HARRY AND MEGHAN GOT TO PRODUCE PROGRAMMES?

        The Sussexes have signed a multi-year deal to produce nature series, documentaries and children’s programming for Netflix, but it seems they could be stepping in front of the cameras some time soon.

        Their first project was a documentary focusing on Prince Harry's treasured Invictus Games.

        The Duke took on the role as executive producer while Archewell Productions worked with director Orlando von Einsiedel and producer Joanna Natasegara on the series, which followed both the athletes and organisers as they prepare for the Games.

        He previously claimed that he had to sign the deal with Netflix and a £30m contract with Spotify because he he'd been effectively "cut off" by the Royal Family when he and Meghan stepped away.

        OMID SCOBIE SAYS MEG & HARRY'S 'STEP INTO HOLLYWOOD' IS 'GOING TO BE REALLY INTERESTING'

         Meg and Harry's £112 million deal with streaming giants Netflix, who could provide the perfect platform to showcase their ideas.

        "It’s only a matter of time before they’ve acquired the rights to a really incredible story, that they’re able to bring to life through a movie or a television drama," Scobie continued.

        "We’ve heard a lot about the non-scripted work that they’re doing. There is that whole side of the production company that is scripted. So it’s only a matter of time before we actually see that come to life.

        "I think that that’s really exciting because it’s a side of them that we’ve never seen or heard of before, but also one that we know they’re both eager to get into.

        "So being able to step into Hollywood a bit but trying to do it in the way – as they were describing – a much more impactful and socially conscious way – that’s going to be really interesting."

        SUSSEXES COULD APPEAR ON BIG SCREEN, OMID SCOBIE HINTS

        As the Duke and Duchess continue to form strong relationships amongst LA's elite, it seems they could be broadening their horizons after stepping back from the Royal family by planning to appear on the big screen.

        Scobie revealed on the Royally Obsessed podcast: "I had a very interesting conversation with some executives at Netflix recently. I was trying my best to get a little bit on the Sussexes.

        "All that was said to me was ‘oh man, you don’t even know the half of what they’re working on. They are aiming so high’.

        "So I think the one thing that may surprise us at one point – and I don’t know when this will be – and this is just my own guess really… I think this is when we’re going to hear some sort of movie announcement."

        THE BIZARRE ROYAL FAMILY TRADITION GIVEN THE BOOT BY PRINCE PHILLIP

        According to Royal expert Richard Jobson, Prince Phillip “cancelled” a “ridiculous” royal family tradition after he found out where it came from.

        The no-nonsense Duke apparently grew increasingly irritated by what he deemed to be “outdated” rules and traditions and therefore banned a tradition that came from Queen Victoria herself.

        She would always order a bottle of whiskey of she had a cold. It became the case that a bottle would always appear at the monarch’s bedside.

        Mr Jobson said: “[Philip] was determined to modernise things inside the Palace.

        “He was the person that brought the television cameras into the coronation ceremony. He was the person that really wanted to conduct the first TV interviews, and did so.

        “He was a great believer in science and technology. So he was someone who really did want to change the way things were done.”

        Mr Jobson added: “He found some of the things completely ridiculous and outdated.

        “The Queen had to sort of temper that, that enthusiasm to change things.”

        HARRY'S SPOKESMAN TOLD BBC DUKE 'WOULD NOT EXPECT TO OBTAIN PERMISSION FROM PALACE' FOR NEW MEMOIRS

        The Prince has joined forces with Pulitzer-winning ghostwriter J. R. Moehringer to pen the memoir, that Harry described as "wholly truthful".

        And it seems the pair aren't mincing words as the Palace have already been warned they "should be afraid" of its contents.

        A spokesperson for Harry previously told the BBC that he "would not be expected to obtain permission for the project from Buckingham Palace".

        PAUL BURRELL SAYS HARRY'S SUPPORT OF 'THE CROWN' SHOWS HE AGREES WITH PORTRAYAL OF CAMILLA AS 'WICKED STEPMOTHER'

        Amid suggestions she was the "third person" in Charles and Diana's marriage, Paul Burrell said Harry's public support of Netflix drama 'The Crown' suggests he agrees with Camilla's portrayal as "the wicked stepmother".

        "I suspect Camilla will be in his sights, so I'd say Harry's set to reveal any Camilla secrets.

        "He's already said he enjoys The Crown, which painted Camilla as the "wicked stepmother" in a way. Charles will be livid if he does go there," he continued.

        It could be quite the blow for the Duke of Cornwall, who is carefully laying the groundwork for Camilla to become Queen.

        Harry has reportedly already riled his father by not warning him about his intention to write a book that lays bare the truth behind Megxit and the Royal rift.

        It was also previously reported that an insider claimed that Harry seems "bizarrely hellbent" on trashing his dad Prince Charles – who feels his son's constant attacks are 'unjust'.

        PAUL BURRELL HINTS HARRY MAY NAME 'RACIST ROYAL' IN NEW BOOK

        Princess Diana'a former butler has hinted that Harry "could very well name" the much-discussed racist family member who raised concerns about how dark their son Archie's skin could be before he was born.

        Meghan made the shocking revelation during her explosive interview with Oprah Winfrey, but refused to identify the individual as it would be "very damaging to them".

        Yet Burrell insisted he "never got a hint" of any racist beliefs within the Firm during his ten years working in the Palace.

        Diana's right-hand man then said Harry will "no doubt" discuss his feelings and experiences after his late mothers death – and that he "may go for Camilla".

        PRINCE HARRY WILL TARGET CAMILLA PARKER BOWLES IN HIS £29M MEMOIR

        PRINCE Harry will target his stepmother Camilla Parker-Bowles in his tell-all £29m memoir and may even name the "royal racist", Paul Burrell has claimed.

        Princess Diana's former butler said the Duke is "set to reveal any Camilla secrets" as he dishes the dirt in his memoir, due to be released in 2022.

        The 36-year-old won't hold back on the woman who cooly "stepped into Diana's shoes" after her death, because his publishers "want their money's worth," according to Burrell. But it could only exacerbate the ongoing Royal family feud as he believes Prince Charles will be "livid" if he tarnishes the Duchess of Cornwall.

        His highly-anticipated four-book deal, which promises to delve into the "highs and lows" of his extraordinary life, has already got the Palace on pins – and now the ex-Royal butler believes he will provide "names and specifics".

        The 63-year-old told Closer magazine: "The publisher, Penguin, will no doubt want their money's worth in this book deal. That means they won't want vagueness – they'll want names and specifics."

        HARRY COMPARED TO EDWARD VIII AFTER HE FADED OUT OF PUBLIC VIEW – AND WROTE AN AUTOBIOGRAPHY

        In an interview with Fox News, Mr Bullen listed some of the similarities between Harry and Edward.

        Edward, who abdicated in 1936 to marry American divorcee and socialite Wallis, wrote a ghost-written autobiography after he was cut off with no source of income.

        Book A King’s Story: Memoirs of the Duke of Windsor was published in 1951, and included detail about the royal split and his relationship with Wallis.

        Harry is currently writing his own memoirs after signing a £29million four-book mega-deal.

        SUSANNA REID REVEALS SHE FEELS ‘AWKWARD’ STUCK BETWEEN PIERS MORGAN AND ITV BOSSES AFTER OFCOM STAND-OFF

        Speaking for the first time since the landmark Ofcom win, Susanna said that she felt “awkward” being stuck in the middle during the complaint.

        The presenter also confirmed that Piers wouldn’t be on the show this morning – or be returning to his job on Good Morning Britain.

        She revealed this morning on GMB: “What struck me about the Ofcom ruling, on the one hand, I’ve got my friend Piers Morgan, and on the other, I’ve got my bosses at ITV.

        “So it’s obviously a slightly awkward moment right now.”

        Susanna said Piers will NOT be returning to the show this morning.

        And when she was asked if she was “devastated,” the presenter simply said: “it was quite a moment, wasn’t it.”

        TIMELINE OF PIERS MORGAN’S HISTORY WITH MEGHAN MARKLE AND PRINCE HARRY

        Morgan’s feud with Meghan stems back to 2015, when the broadcaster says the now-Duchess “ghosted” him.

        2015

        • In 2015, the pair were friendly and followed each other on Twitter.

        2016

        • In 2016, the pair met for drinks in London at Piers’ favourite pub while Markle was in town.

        2018

        • In May of 2018, in the lead up to Harry and Meghan’s royal wedding, Morgan wrote of his sympathy towards for Meghan’s father, Thomas Markle, who would not be invited to the royal wedding amid the family drama that had ensued.

        2021

        • Fast forward to 2021, Piers’ anger only grew when it was announced that Meghan and Harry would be doing a 2-hour long interview with Oprah.

        MEGHAN MARKLE WILL BE ‘ABSOLUTELY LIVID’ AS PIERS MORGAN WINS OFCOM RULING OVER ‘LIAR’ BLAST

        Royal biographer Angela Levin says the Duchess of Sussex could bring her lawyers in after Ofcom ruled the former Good Morning Britain host was entitled to give his opinions about her during a heated debate.

        Following the sensational win for free speech, Piers said Meghan wrote to his ITV boss Dame Carolyn McCall demanding “his head on a plate,” in a “nauseating” bid to get him fired.

        And it’s believed the Duchess will be as angry now that her pleas failed and Piers won the complaint.

        On how Meghan will feel about the ruling, Royal author Angela Levin told The Sun Online: “I think she will be absolutely livid and she’ll ask her lawyers to see what they can do about it.

        “She can’t cope with someone saying she didn’t tell the truth. Because she is all about compassion and understanding and caring for people.”

        TRASH TALK

        The Duchess of Sussex, 40, said she begged for help but was told she would not be able to seek help as it “wouldn’t be good for the institution”.

        But Piers had no sympathy for the then-pregnant Royal and ranted on the ITV breakfast show: “Who did you go to? What did they say to you?

        “I don’t believe a word she says, Meghan Markle. I wouldn’t believe a weather report if she read it.

        “The fact she has expressed an onslaught against our Royal Family is contemptible.”

        The day after he made the comments – Piers announced he wouldn’t be returning to the show following his colleague Alex Beresford’s monologue criticising him for continually attacking Meghan.

        MEGHAN MARKLE AND PRINCE HARRY ‘PROUD’ OF THEIR NEW LIFE IN AMERICA

        Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are said to be proud of their new life in America despite a “difficult” few years.

        In a new epilogue of the book Finding Freedom, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are reported to have no regrets about their decision to quit royal life.

        The Royal Family was hurled into crisis mode when the couple quit the Firm last year and the Queen was forced to publicly respond to claims made in their bombshell Oprah interview.

        But Town & Country reports that in an updated chapter of Finding Freedom, authors Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand say “as difficult as recent years have been, neither Harry nor Meghan have any regrets about the decisions they have made”.
