The Duke of Sussex reportedly felt “helpless” after learning the news in his LA home thousands of miles away.

And it’s understood he’s been “checking in non-stop” to ensure his grandmother is feeling better, an unsubstantiated source told US Weekly.

“He felt helpless being 5,000 miles away in Montecito, and has been checking in non-stop with her,” they said.

    The Bench started as a poem Meghan wrote for Harry

    The Bench – Meghan's first book – was published in June this year days after the birth of her second child, Lilibet Diana.

    It was published by Random House Children's Books, who are also releasing Prince Harry's explosive memoirs.

    Meghan said previously: "The Bench started as a poem I wrote for my husband on Father's Day, the month after Archie was born. That poem became this story."

    "My hope is that The Bench resonates with every family, no matter the make up, as much as it does with me."

    ‘Desperate to control their narrative’

    PRINCE Harry and Meghan Markle have isolated themselves from their family because they’re “desperate to control their narrative”, according to a royal author.

    Commentator Tom Bower, who is currently working on a biography of Meghan, said that the Duke, 37, and Duchess of Sussex, 40, will live to regret their “poisonous choice” of cutting people out of their lives.

    Speaking to Closer, Bower told the publication: “I believe Meghan is a very stubborn person, but I think eventually even she'll realise that this isolated world she and Harry and built for themselves was a poisonous choice.

    “They seem so desperate to control the narrative that they can't risk anyone else influencing it – but this will simply cause more damage to them in the future, when their children grow up with no family around them.”

      Calling on men and women to unite to end sexual violence

      THE Duchess of Cornwall has called on men and women to unite and end sexual violence.

      In a speech to an audience including the PM’s pregnant wife Carrie Johnson, she said: “How many more women must be harassed, raped or murdered before we unite to forge a violence-free world?”

      Camilla, 74, warned against a “culture of silence” among female victims, saying: “The victim feels invaded and dirty.

      “Shame often causes the victim to blame herself.”

      She also urged women to “get the men in our lives to participate”.

      Camilla added: “After all, rapists are not born, they are constructed.”

      The duchess spoke out last night at a reception in London for activism and art to help confront attitudes towards sexual violence.

      She also paid tribute to recent victims including Sarah Everard and Sabina Nessa.

      Sorry, the diary's full

      THE Queen's diary is to be "carefully examined" to Christmas and next year after her doctors imposed strict orders to rest.

      Royal sources say they have been instructed to take a "careful and cautious approach" to Her Majesty's diary in the future.

      Palace officials will create engagements for the Queen based on how she is feeling and whether she needs to travel.

      It is understood that there will be an "ever greater collaboration" between senior members of the royal family on future engagements, reports The Mirror.

      A royal source told the publication: “The senior royals as a unit have collectively discussed a greater need for collaboration in their projects together, whether that is explicitly working on the same topic or supporting each other on an ad-hoc basis, different plans will be drawn up to the ones that currently exist.

      “After the coronavirus restrictions have ended they all feel the need to get out and do more.

      “The Queen is aware of the need to rest and that is what she is doing now.

      “No doubt she will be back when she feels ready."

      Queen experiencing 'discomfort'

      The Sun revealed yesterday that the Queen was forced to give up horse riding two months ago after suffering “discomfort”.

      Her Majesty was told to rein in her equestrianism in early September but is determined to be back in the saddle again soon.

      The Sun understands the monarch, a keen horsewoman and avid racing fan, has not been out on a nag since her summer break in Scotland.

      A Balmoral source said: “She was in quite a bit of discomfort. She adores riding and it has been part of her ritual for most of her life.

      "She has been extremely disappointed not to go riding since the beginning of September.”

      Remaining a secret – for now?

      A JUDGE agreed to keep a legal agreement between Prince Andrew’s sex assault accuser and Jeffrey Epstein a secret yesterday – but admitted it might eventually be made public.

      Lawyers for Virginia Roberts Giuffre had handed over a copy of a “release” signed in 2009 – following her legal settlement with sex trafficker Epstein.

      Attorneys for Andrew, 61, have reviewed the document and look set to argue that it makes him exempt from any culpability in her bombshell sex assault claims against him.

      Andrew Brettler, one of Andrew’s lawyers, made a request to file the release in secret – which was granted yesterday by US District Judge Lewis Kaplan.

      He said the agreement "releases Prince Andrew and others from any purported liability arising from the claims Ms Giuffre asserted against Prince Andrew here".

      But the judge hinted that the document may be made public in future.

      Mansion next to Prince Harry & Meghan Markle sells for whopping £14M

      The plush pad next door to the Duke and Duchess of Sussex's mansion appears to have sold for a whopping £14million.

      The staggering sum has bought the mystery buyer a mansion in an exclusive celeb enclave, next door to the royal couple.

      The seven-bed, 13-bathroom estate was originally on sale for a cool $22.5million (about £16.3million) in March this year (2021).

      But it has since sold for the reduced price of $19,100,000 (about £14million), according to Realtor.com.

      Harry and Meghan’s Chateau of Riven Rock pad is visible behind trees on the estate in aerial photos shared online by the US real estate agent.

      The Crown to include 'keystone moment' of Diana's Bashir interview

      The fifth series of Netflix drama The Crown will dramatise the headline-making 1995 Panorama interview with Diana, Princess of Wales, according to reports.

      That interview, conducted by then-BBC journalist Martin Bashir, made global headlines as the princess spoke openly about her marriage to the Prince of Wales, famously telling Bashir "there were three of us in this marriage, so it was a bit crowded".

      An insider said: "The Crown's creators see the interview as the keystone moment in series five.

      "To the writers, the stormy marriage between Charles and Di led up to her outpouring on Panorama, and the aftermath of that decision defined her final months.

      "They are making a huge investment in that. The Crown has a track record of delving into areas of the Royal Family's history they'd rather be left alone."

      No paths crossed

      Kate Middleton & William are unlikely to meet Harry & Meghan at the Earthshot Prize in the US as they could ‘steal their thunder’.

      The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge were the king and queen of green as they awarded the winners of a £50million planet saving prize earlier this month.

      Speaking at a reception afterwards, William said: “We raised the bar — now over to the US.”

      Royal author Phil Dampier told Fabulous that it would be a “logical step” for William and Kate to attend the ceremony across the pond in 2022 – where Meghan and Harry have set up their new life.

      However, Phil added that any chance of a reconciliation between the two couples is unlikely.

      He explained: “I don’t think William and Kate would want to meet up with Harry and Meghan, who could try and steal their thunder on the earth shot project.

      “They are very much rivals now, not brothers in arms, and I’m afraid I can’t see a reconciliation soon."
