Meghan and Harry latest: Palace insider accuses Netflix of 'trolling' Royals as Meghan's praised for sharing miscarriage

MEGHAN Markle bravely shared her miscarriage heartache to support other women who faced the same tragedy in silence, an insider claimed.

The Duchess of Sussex, 39, last month penned an emotional op-ed that revealed the "unbearable grief" she and husband Prince Harry had gone through after losing their second child.

In the deeply personal essay for the New York Times, the mum revealed she had to be hospitalised four months ago after feeling a "sharp cramp" before losing her unborn baby.

A source told People magazine Meghan had bravely decided to share her experience to break the "cycle of solitary mourning".

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle signed a multi-million deal with Netflix earlier this year, which has now been accused of "corporate trolling" after posting a "sinister" tweet after plugging a documentary that promises to answer criticism over The Crown.

The streaming giant tweeted a clip from its documentary Diana: In Her Own Words – telling fans it "answers much of what you’re asking".

A wave of criticism has been directed at the Royal Family by fans over how Princess Diana is treated in popular series with trolls hurling vile abuse at the Duchess of Cornwall over her false portrayal.

Now senior palace figures have accused Netflix of using its social media channels to continue sharing "sinister" messages.

    PRINCE HARRY & MEGHAN MARKLE THOUGHT TO BE FOLLOWING IN FERGIE'S FOOTSTEPS

    Prince Harry was mocked this week when he told people to be “like a raindrop” in his very woke speech promoting his new platform for environmental documentaries.

    The Duke of Sussex also raised eyebrows saying: "Somebody said to me right at the beginning of the pandemic it's almost as though mother nature has sent us to our rooms for bad behaviour to really take a moment and think about what we've done."

    That 'somebody' may just be his aunt Sarah Ferguson who delivered the same phrase at the start of the pandemic.

    Discussing the news of the Duchess of Sussex's miscarriage with Dr Hilary, she said: "It was almost exactly the same, having to go to hospital and the way she talked about it. 

    "What really helped me was being able to talk to you obviously and also other people, but also Rosie.

    "I think she was only six then and I know Archie is a lot younger than that but I know that that will really help you know having another child will really help.

    "My heart goes out to them, it's so sad and I think the way she's done it is absolutely brilliant."

    Lorraine spoke about how women deal with miscarriages in many different ways, and said there isn't a right way to cope with loss.

    THE STORY BEHIND MEGHAN'S ENGAGEMENT RING

    Prince Harry designed Meghan's ring himself, using a diamond from Botswana along with two others from Princess Diana’s personal jewellery collection.

    During their royal tour of Southern Africa, Meghan swapped out her £250k ring for an understated, plain gold band with a small but pretty turquoise stone.

    Last year, fans spotted Meghan had tweaked the ring, replacing the original thick gold band with a much thinner, diamond-studded micro-pavé one.

    I'M A CELEBRITY STAR RUTHIE HENSHALL SAYS THE ROYALS ARE A 'NORMAL FAMILY'

    The former actress who recently appeared in the I'm A Celebrity castle had an on-and-off relationship with Prince Edward for six years.

    Speaking to the Mail last night, she said she was invited to Balmoral and Windsor Castle during her royal romance.

    She said, "They were very welcoming and as much as you can say this – because you are with the Royal Family in the Palace or at Windsor or Balmoral, which are not normal circumstances and places – but when they are together, they are a normal family and you are part of that.

    "I was absolutely welcomed in. I have nothing but fondness and lovely memories of them being incredibly kind and very interested in my life. I didn't ever feel like an outsider."

    FINDING FREEDOM AUTHOR CLAIMS THE CROWN COULD BE EXTENDED

    The Crown could be "extended" to show Prince Harry and Prince William as adults, Finding Freedom author Omid Scobie has claimed.

    He said he's heard "rumblings" Netflix are considering extending the run past Princess Diana's tragic death in 1997, speaking on his podcast Heirpod.

    "I think originally it was reported that it would stop before William and Harry become adults, I’ve certainly heard there is talked within Netflix about the possibility that the show might be extended."

    The Crown series 4, which focuses on Diana joining the Royal Family and was released on November 15, has sparked outrage with its portrayal of prominent royals.

    SURPRISE ITEMS IN THE ROYALS' HOMES SHOW THEY'RE JUST LIKE US

    They may live in palaces, dine on royal banquets and enjoy star-studded balls, but behind closed doors, the royal family may be more down-to-earth than you think. 

    The likes of Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle have given royal fans a sneak peek inside their stunning homes, and revealed they love Ikea and Dunelm just as much as the rest of us.

    Kate and William are said to have revealed that the young Cambridge kids have Ikea furniture in their bedrooms at Kensington Palace.

    The Queen has her own Dyson fan and Dunelm's Dorma collection of beds do in fact have a royal warrant, so they're likely to be a favourite, too.

    Former Towie star and businesswoman Gemma Collins wrote an open letter to Meghan after she shared her miscarriage heartache.

    "I hope you don’t mind me writing to you like this. You don’t know me, and we’ve never met, but I cried when I read what you’d written about your miscarriage yesterday", she wrote.

    "Your sadness and grief leapt out of the page, along with your desire to comfort other women who have been through the same heartbreak.

    "I am one of those women. Because like you I also had a miscarriage in July – one of the ten or twenty women in a room of a hundred that you wrote about who will know the particular pain of losing a longed-for baby.

    "I’ve not talked about this before, but it was my third, each one a devastating loss on my longed-for journey to motherhood.

    "It doesn't matter if you're in the public eye or married to a Prince, miscarriages don't discriminate, and the pain is the same for us all. "

    The Duchess of Sussex, 39, recently wrote of the moment she knew she was "losing" her second baby in a deeply personal essay for the New York Times.

    HARRY WAS MISTAKEN FOR CHRISTMAS TREE SALESMAN

    Prince Harry was recently mistaken for a Christmas tree salesman when he went shopping for a festive fir with Meghan.

    A salesman said the Sussexes' agent had arranged for the pair to pick out a tree when his shop was meant to be empty, but one family was still milling around the trees and their child ran towards Harry thinking he was staff.

    Posting on Twitter he wrote: "Meghan and Prince Harry came into my work today and we sold them their Christmas Tree.

    "It was anticlimactic, but a very, very interesting experience. We had our lot empty when they got there – their agent promoted them a good time to come instead of us shutting it down.

    "There was one family in there and their stoked little son ran through trees up to Harry and asked if he worked here not knowing who that is.

    "They seems like very nice people honestly. Meghan sounds very kind and Harry sounded and acted like a chill lad honestly."

    On March 24th she posted on Instagram: "Mother Nature has sent us to our rooms.. like the spoilt children we are.

    “She gave us time and she gave us warnings. She was so patient with us. She gave us fire and floods, she tried to warn us but in the end she took back control.

    “She has sent us to our rooms and when she is finished clearing up our mess. She will let us out to play again. How will we use this time? Xxxx"

    MEGHAN’S FAVOURITE NIGHT CLUB

    Her days of late nights out dancing may be over now she's a mum but Meghan Markle's favourite London nightclub is not what you'd expect.

    When just a tourist to the UK back in 2014, the Duchess of Sussex revealed that she liked to head to a famous "sweaty, grungy" Soho club filled with "red-lipped tough birds" that was where you came to "dance, not to be seen or to people watch".

    In a post on her now-defunct blog The Tig titled 'Insiders Guide To London', Meghan, 37, recommended a particular night held at the club St Moritz on Wardour Street every Thursday – Gaz's Rockin' Blues – for a fun night out.

    The then-Suits actress wrote: "The oldest ongoing club in London, this place is sweaty, grungy and happening every Thursday night, late night.

    "They play a mix of rock’a’billy, reggae and ska. You come here to dance, not to be seen or to people watch.

    A QUIET CHRISTMAS FOR THE QUEEN

    It has been announced that the Queen 94, has cancelled her usual festive break at Sandringham for a “quiet” time at Windsor Castle instead.

    This will be the first time in 33 years that the Queen won’t be going to Sandringham, where she usually celebrates Christmas with her large extended family. 

    Their popular traditions of a boxing day shoot and big family charade games are also likely to be off the agenda.

    A spokesperson said: "Having considered all the appropriate advice, The Queen and The Duke of Edinburgh have decided that this year they will spend Christmas quietly in Windsor."

    A 20ft Christmas tree has been installed for the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh to enjoy over the festive period together.

    HARRY SUGGESTS CORONAVIRUS WAS A PUNISHMENT FROM NATURE

    Harry has suggested Covid is punishment from Mother Nature as he urged everyone to "be a raindrop" and repair the Earth.

    The Duke of Sussex made the claim as he launched a new Netflix-style streaming platform for climate documentaries – adding that he'd also questioned having children as the world will be "on fire" when they grow up.

    The 36-year-old, who recently bought a £11million Californian mansion, said in the very woke promo: "Somebody said to me at the beginning of the pandemic, it's almost as though Mother Nature has sent us to our rooms for bad behaviour to really take a moment and think about what we've done.

    "It's certainly reminded me about how interconnected we all are, not just as people but through nature.

    "We take so much from her and we rarely give a lot back."

    THE CROWN STAR HELENA BONHAM CARTER SAYS SHOW SHOULD CARRY A FICTION NOTE

    The actress, who plays Princess Margaret in the drama, said the show has a "moral responsibility" to make sure fans know it's not historical fact.

    Speaking on the series’ official podcast, Ms Bonham Carter said: “I do feel very strongly because I think we have a moral responsibility to say ‘Hang on, guys…this is not drama doc, we’re making a drama.’”

    The star insisted there must be a separation “between our version” and the "real version”. 

    Her remarks come amid growing pressure on The Crown to tell viewers it is a work of fiction after concerns some scenes are damaging the public’s view of the monarchy. 

    Culture Secretary Oliver Dowden urged Netflix to place a warning at the beginning of each episode to remind viewers the drama was a work of fiction – and not historical fact.

    MEGHAN PRAISED FOR HONESTY ABOUT MISCARRIAGE BY KYM MARSH

    Kyn Marsh praised Meghan Markle for sharing her heartbreaking miscarriage ordeal.

    The Duchess of Sussex, 39, wrote of the moment she knew she was "losing" her second baby in a deeply personal essay for the New York Times.

    Kym, 44, has had her own experience with miscarriage after tragically losing her baby son Archie in February 2009 who was born 18 weeks early and died soon after his birth.

    The Coronation Street star has previously said she didn't want to talk about the traumatic experience because then "it would be real".

    Now she has opened up about the Duchess' personal piece calling it "wonderful" because it will help to "lift the stigma and break the silence" around miscarriages.

    "When you lose a child you feel so lonely and empty and like the only person who is going through it," Kym wrote in her OK! magazine column.

    MELANIA TRUMP 'LOST OUT ON TATLER COVER TO MEGHAN' AFTER STAFFER FAILED TO NEGOTIATE

    Melania Trump reportedly missed her chance to land the cover of Tatler's November issue to Meghan Markle because her chief of staff failed to negotiate a deal for the first lady.

    During her husband Donald Trump's re-election bid, Stephanie Grisham managed to land Melania the only exclusive interview of his campaign with the British fashion magazine.

    But Grisham, the first lady's most trusted staffer, didn't negotiate a cover deal despite shrugging off multiple interview offers from big-name outlets, according to New York Post columnist Miranda Devine.

    "Having eschewed countless offers for positive interviews from American outlets such as Women’s Wear Daily and The Post, Grisham allowed the British magazine Tatler to have the only exclusive interview of the campaign for its November issue," Devine wrote.

    "And yet she did not negotiate the cover of the magazine. Instead, Meghan Markle took the honor."

    The reported misstep is one of several, according to Trump staffers who suggested Melania should cut ties with Grisham before leaving the White House, sources told Devine.

    HARRY 'COPYING' FERGIE WITH WOKE SPEECH ON RAINDROPS

    Harry was mocked this week when he told people to be “like a raindrop” in his very woke speech promoting his new platform for environmental documentaries.

    The Duke of Sussex also raised eyebrows saying: "Somebody said to me right at the beginning of the pandemic it's almost as though mother nature has sent us to our rooms for bad behaviour to really take a moment and think about what we've done."

    That 'somebody' may just be his aunt Sarah Ferguson who delivered the same phrase at the start of the pandemic.

    “She gave us time and she gave us warnings. She was so patient with us. She gave us fire and floods, she tried to warn us but in the end she took back control."

    It would come as no surprise that Harry is looking to Fergie for inspiration after we revealed last month that he and Meghan have grown close to her daughter Princess Beatrice and her hubby Jack Brooksbank.

    Insiders say they are trying to create their own 'fab four' and have gifted the keys to Frogmore Cottage to pregnant Eugenie.

    HARRY ‘YEARNING’ FOR QUEEN TO REINSTATE MILITARY TITLES

    Speaking on Lorraine, Daily Express Royal editor Russell Myers said: “One of the main points with the divorce deals with the rest of the Royal Family, and the thing that hurt him the most, was that he [had to] stand down from his military appointments.

    “That is under a 12-month review, and I think Harry will be yearning for that.

    “You look at him wearing his medals with pride over the Remembrance weekend, he [received a ban] from laying a wreath in his absence at the Cenotaph.

    “So him and Meghan went to the Los Angeles veterans cemetery.”
