    Palace insiders slam claims Queen hospital stay was 'covered up'

    ROYAL insiders have slammed claims that the Queen's hospital stay was "covered up", and say the public were "given the complete picture."

    Buckingham Palace has been accused of misleading the public about the Queen's health after The Sun revealed Her Majesty had spent a night in hospital.

    The Queen's two-day visit to Northern Ireland had to be cancelled at the last minute, while the palace communications team told journalists that Her Majesty was at Windsor Castle.

    But The Sun revealed on Thursday night – 24 hours after – that the Queen was in fact in a London hospital overnight, not Windsor.

    And now correspondents and journalists have slammed the palace for not giving the public the full picture of the Queen's health.

    Nicholas Witchell, the BBC's royal correspondent, insisted journalists – and the public – "weren’t given the complete picture."

    He added: "The problem, it seems to me, is that rumour and misinformation always thrive in the absence of proper, accurate and trustworthy information."

    ‘Ultimate goal’

    Pals of the Duchess have previously claimed that she had confided in a friend that her ultimate goal was to become President.

    According to sources, she admitted the ambitious goal after beginning her relationship with Harry.

    In 2015, she reportedly told Piers Morgan: “As a kid, I wanted to be either the president or a news broadcaster like you”.

    Former editor of The Times, Sir Simon Jenkins has said: “Her friends and associates affirm that she is a political animal.

    “Such is her fame, she could perfectly well follow a route taken by a certain Ronald Reagan.”

    Kate Middleton is Royal Family’s ‘last hope’

    Experts say Kate Middleton is the “last hope” against Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s stylish celebrity lifestyle.

    For the Palace Confidential podcast, journalist Charlotte Griffiths said: “I think it’s essential they turn up the glamour, because the ‘Fab Four’ never came to fruition.

    “I’m afraid, the Royal Family look quite bland compared to Meghan and Harry, they just have that star quality.

    “And Kate has got to ramp it up, because she’s got to bring the glamour. She is our last hope for glamour in the Royal Family now.”

    Questions raised over secrecy around Queen’s overnight hospital stay

    Royal watchers say Buckingham Palace ‘could have handled it differently’ after the news of the Queen’s overnight hospital stay was leaked.

    Dickie Arbiter, a former press secretary to the Queen said: “It could have been handled differently.

    “They could have made an announcement after she was back at Windsor Castle, saying, ‘The Queen has been to hospital for tests. She is now back at the castle. She is working. That is all we are saying. End of’.”

    Meghan Markle told to ‘stick to acting’

    Furious republicans have told Meghan Markle to “stick to acting” following her “politically motivated” letter to Congress.

    The Duchess of Sussex, 40, wrote a lengthy plea to two Democratic lawmakers in Washington DC on Thursday in which she advocated for paid family leave.

    But now incensed politicians have hit back at Megan for daring to “intervene” in US politics – even calling on the Queen to strip the royal of her titles.

    In a rant to the Mail Online, Republican Jason Smith, who represents Missouri, said: “Ms. Markle’s latest interference in U.S. politics reignites the question in my mind as to why the Royal Family does not simply strip her and Harry officially of their titles, particularly since she insists on sending this under the pretence of being the Duchess of Sussex.”

    Royal experts had previously called her letter, addressed to Democrats Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi, a “first try” for the Duchess to move into politics.

    Prince William’s unruly behaviour at school

    According to Robert Lacey’s royal biography Battle of Brothers, William was called ‘Basher Wills’ or ‘Billy the Basher’ by his classmates. 

    The royal biographer wrote: “Still not ten years old, William was already establishing the pattern of open disdain and aggression towards his father that would mark his early adult life – but more of that later.

    “The young prince had picked up his nicknames of ‘Basher Wills’ or ‘Billy the Basher’ when he joined Mrs Jane Mynors’ Nursery School in Notting Hill, not far from Kensington Palace, in September 1985. 

    “Noisy, cheeky and defiant of discipline, Wills soon angered his classmates by pushing his way to the front of the dinner queue and getting involved in playground fights.”

    Explained: Why was the Queen in hospital?

    THE Queen’s overnight stay in hospital for tests has focused attention on the health of the 95-year-old monarch.

    Her Majesty has generally been in good health throughout her 69-year reign and it appears the decision to keep her in hospital was made on practical grounds.

    The Queen had been due visit Northern Ireland on a two day trip but as The Sun revealed, she cancelled it on the advice of her doctors and was kept in hospital for test.

    She was kept her in because it was getting too late to take her on a 26-mile trip home, sources have said.

    Yesterday afternoon was understood to be back at her desk at Windsor Castle.

    The Queen quickly returned to Royal duties after the death of the Duke of Edinburgh in April, aged 99.

    She is known for her robust constitution this week was on her feet for more than an hour at a business summit at Windsor Castle.

    But she has cut down on her alcohol consumption since the death of her husband, ditching the Martini cocktail she was said to enjoy every evening.

    And as winter approaches she will cut back commitments as she struggles with getting about.

    MEGHAN Markle has taken her first steps at attempting to forage a political career a royal expert has claimed.

    The Duchess of Sussex, 40, wrote a letter to two Democratic lawmakers in Washington DC, making a plea for paid parental leave in the US.

    Royal experts have called her letter, addressed to Democrats Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi, a “first try” for the Duchess to move into politics.

    Angela Levin, author of Harry: A Biography of a Prince, said: “Meghan’s first try for a political role perhaps.

    “She’s writing to Nancy Pelosi and Charles Schumer ‘on behalf of all families’ to get paid leave.

    “Good enough cause but what is her real motive and will hypocrisy rear its head again?”

    Kate & William show they ‘have perfect power balance’

    Kate Middleton and Prince William put on a rare display of public affection at the Earthshot Prize and were pictured cuddling up to one another and gazing into each other’s eyes.

    Speaking to Fabulous, body language expert Judi James said the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge showed they have the “perfect power balance” as they enjoyed their sweet moment. 

    Judi said: “This very gentle and affectionate PDA is an unusual gesture from the couple as it is something of a role-reversal, with Kate placing her arm around her husband’s waist rather than the other way round.

    “This says a lot about the power balance between the two, with Kate’s caring, protective and “supportive gesture showing high levels of confidence and a very even sense of status.

    “They are the first top tier royal couple to use emphatic displays of even status like this, with their natural mirroring and with PDAs performed by both of them.

    “Her gesture here is clearly endorsed and enjoyed by William, whose rounded cheek shape signals an authentic smile as they perform some intimate and affectionate-looking eye contact.”

    Harry & Meghan titles

    THE QUEEN was left with “no choice” but to strip Harry & Meghan of their titles as the Duke wanted to “live a life free of responsibility”.

    Royal commentator Dylan Howard said Harry’s grandmother the Queen took back the titles as they decided to step away – despite them publicly backing notable causes such as paternity leave for US mothers and climate change.

    Speaking in 2021 documentary, ‘Secrets Of The Royal – The Markles vs. The Monarchy’, Mr Howard said: “I think Harry wanted it both ways. He wanted to be able to live a life free of responsibility but still make change.

    “And the reality was, the Sussexes in another country are isolated from everything the Royal Family means.

    “And that puts the Royal Family at peril. So, the Queen had no choice but to strip them of the titles.”
