Meghan Markle latest news – Meg and Prince Harry 'secretive' over birth due date as Diana 4/1 favourite for baby name

MEGHAN Markle's exact due date for her and Prince Harry's second baby – a girl – remains a "secret", says a report.

But, says the Telegraph, many are expecting their baby to be born within weeks in the US, providing a sibling for older brother Archie.

During her chat with Oprah Winfrey, the Duchess of Sussex described her pregnancy as "a feeling of joy we share with millions of other families around the world".

Bookies suggest that their daughter's name is likely to be Diana, in honour of Harry's late mum Diana, Princess of Wales.

Diana remains the "clear 4/1 favourite to be the name Harry and Meghan choose for their second child," says Betfair.

    ARCHIE AND SISTER TO STUDY IN THE US

    When Archie and his sister start school, Meghan and Harry will have a number of prestigious options to choose from.

    One of the top establishments in Montecito is Laguna Blanca, which is a private co-ed day school that says it “celebrates the worth of the individual”.

    It costs an eye-watering £20,000 a year and has a pupil teacher ratio of 6:1.

    Alternatively, they could opt for the exclusive Crane Country School – also £20,000 a year – which has the mantra that “rigour and joy go hand-in-hand”.

    PRINCE HARRY HAD NO CLUE OF GRANDAD’S DEATH UNTIL COPS KNOCKED AT MANSION DOOR

    Prince Harry discovered the tragic news of his grandfather’s death when he was visited by police after sleeping through calls in the early hours of the morning, it’s reported.

    Cops were forced to visit the royal’s LA home after he didn’t pick up to US Embassy officials who called after 3am to tell him of Prince Philip’s death, TMZ claims.

    After repeated attempt to contact Harry, the Embassy representative allegedly called the sheriff’s department in Santa Barbara to ask that an officer be sent to the Duke’s home in exclusive Montecito.

    Harry was finally told of Philip’s death after a cop arrived at the gates of the property he shares with Meghan and told him to call the Embassy urgently.

    ‘MASSIVELY LOVED-UP’

    Prince Harry inundated sexy actress Meghan Markle with texts until she agreed to go out with him.

    He pursued the Suits star after meeting her at a charity do, the Sun reported in 2016.

    Pals told the paper at the time: “He is very full-on but she was going through quite a tough time with her previous boyfriend and she was very flattered.

    “She couldn’t contain her excitement, but once she got back from London she became very secretive. It was then that it changed from them just ‘seeing each other’ to boyfriend and girlfriend.

    “He’s head over heels and she feels the same.”

    CALLS FOR HARRY TO GIVE UP TITLE

    More than 20,000 people have signed a petition demanding that Prince Harry gives up his royal titles.

    The public have begged him to “stop doing damage to the institution of the monarchy”.

    The petition was launched by royal expert Lady Colin Campbell, author of Meghan and Harry: The Real Story.

    “I have spoken to people, many people, who think it’s the right thing to do and it is the solution.

    “It is a dignified solution for all concerned. To humiliate no-one and protect everyone. I think it’s a humane way of solving a very regrettable situation.”

    CONTINUED: KATE MIDDLETON ‘ROSE ABOVE’ MEGHAN MARKLE’S ACCUSATIONS OVER WEDDING TEARS

    Royal expert Camilla Tominey told Stella magazine: "Despite the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s Oprah Winfrey interview, when Kate was accused of making Meghan cry during a bridesmaid’ s dress fitting and failing to support her, Kate rose decidedly above it all.

    "Setting aside any personal resentment she may still feel about Harry and Meghan’s televised two-hour tell-all, Kate put her best foot forward in trying to carve a path to reconciliation between the brothers. 

    “Few would have blamed her for giving Harry the cold shoulder, yet she clearly resolved that the situation needed to be appeased rather than aggravated."

    HARRY & WILLS ‘REUNITED IN RAGE’ OVER TREATMENT OF THEIR MUM

    Prince Harry and his brother William may be reunited over their joint rage at Martin Bashir, and could come together to unveil a statue of their mum Diana, a royal expert has claimed.

    Royal expert Robert Jobson told the ABC’s HeirPod podcast: “This may – their indignation at the BBC – may bring them all together, because frankly the feuding, blaming, finger pointing has to stop at some stage.

    “I’d hope that any sons, whoever they are, royal or not, could have decency to come together to pay tribute to their mother who they lost at a very early age, and pay their respects thoughtfully and with honour.

    “I think to continue this feuding is both pointless and upsetting for everybody.

    “I don’t think doing our Royal Family any good in its brand abroad, and at some stage they have got to sit down and talk, so why not sit down and talk after the unveiling of statue of someone who did so much good for so many people around the world?”

    The Daily Mail’s Royal Editor Rebecca English has warned that Harry and Meghan could be “poking the bear” and that there may be a “tipping point” with the royals following Harry’s recent appearance in a documentary on mental health, Star Online reports.

    Ms English said: “The Palace have always gone with the never complain, never explain approach.

    “Can we really expect that to carry on? Surely there will be a tipping point?”

    She continued: “Buckingham Palace genuinely don’t want to get drawn into a public slanging match with Harry and Meghan,” said English.

    “That said, they are poking the bear a lot, and people are right to wonder whether there will be a tipping point.”

    PIERS MORGAN TO RETURN TO GMB?

    Panicked ITV chiefs have contacted Piers Morgan over a shock return to Good Morning Britain, the Sun has exclusively revealed.

    It follows a ratings slump since the outspoken presenter, 56, left the ITV breakfast show in March in a row over his comments about Meghan.

    Piers revealed: “They reached out — there have been approaches. Never say never.” Fans deserted the ITV breakfast show in their droves following his dismissal for refusing to apologise to Meghan Markle.

    Piers has also told The Sun that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle should be stripped of their royal titles for “trashing the institution and causing a lot of damage”.

    He explained: “I think they should be stripped of their titles because they’re trashing the institution and causing a lot of damage in the Commonwealth where a lot of the countries are believing this racism c**p.”

    HARRY ONCE PRAISED CHARLES FOR ‘BEING THERE’ AFTER DIANA’S DEATH

    Four years ago, Harry told the BBC: “One of the hardest things for a parent to have to do is tell your children that your other parent has died. How you deal with that, I don’t know.

    “But he was there for us. He was the one out of two left. And he tried to do his best and to make sure that we were protected and looked after.

    “But he was going through the same grieving process as well.”

    He had previously said no child should have to walk in their mother’s funeral procession, but told filmmakers: “Before I knew it I found myself with a suit on, with a black tie and white shirt, and I was part of it.

    “Generally, I don’t have an opinion on whether that was right or wrong. I’m glad I was part of it. Looking back on it now, I’m very glad I was part of it.”

    UNIVERSITY FORCED TO APOLOGISE FOR PRINCE PHILIP TRIBUTE AFTER STAFF COMPLAINTS OVER DUKE’S ‘RACIST & SEXIST COMMENTS’

    A UNIVERSITY was forced to apologise for their tribute to Prince Philip after staff complained about the Duke’s “racist and sexist comments.”

    Woke staff at King’s College London were outraged at an email bulletin following the Duke’s death in April – which showed a picture of him opening a university library in 2002.

    After the Duke’s death earlier this year, the university’s interim principal, Professor Evelyn Welch, issued a public statement praising his “long and valued association with King’s.”

    Prince Philip had been a governor at the university since 1955 – and had visited the official opening of one of the libraries in 2002.

    But staff members were outraged after being sent the picture of the Duke visiting the Maughan Library. The university’s anti-racism group complained that the email caused “harm” because the Prince had made a number of racist and sexist comments in his lifetime.

    MEGHAN SAYS HER TEENS AND 20S WERE ‘BRUTAL’

    Meghan Markle has revealed how her teens and 20s were a “brutal” experience where she struggled to be “happy” and “fit in”.

    The Duchess of Sussex, 39, admitted that as a young woman she was in a “constant battle”, which saw her “judge” herself on her weight, didn’t have anyone to eat lunch with at school, and aged 24 was told by a casting director to wear less make-up.

    On her 33rd birthday back in August 2014, on her now-defunct lifestyle blog The Tig, the former actress – wrote that she had finally found happiness, but that it had taken a while to get there.

    She revealed: “My 20s were brutal – a constant battle with myself, judging my weight, my style, my desire to be as cool/as hip/as smart/as “whatever” as everyone else.

    “My teens were even worse – grappling with how to fit in, and what that even meant. My high school had cliques: the black girls and white girls, the Filipino and the Latina girls.”

    HIGH PRAISE FOR PRINCESSES EUGENIE & BEATRICE FROM PIERS MORGAN

    Outspoken Piers Morgan has branded Meghan Markle and Prince Harry “family-abusing spoiled brats”.

    The 56-year-old presenter launched his most stinging attack on the LA-based former royals yet – as he praised Princesses Eugenie and Beatrice.

    Writing in the Mail he explained he met the sisters at a London party earlier this month – and offered them parenting tips.

    He said: “I’ve known both Princesses since they were very young, and they’ve been through a lot of tough times in the media spotlight, especially lately over their father Prince Andrew’s shameful friendship with billionaire paedophile Jeffrey Epstein.

    “But they never complain, or give whining interviews, or publicly trash their family. They’re always incredibly nice, polite and good fun – which all makes such a refreshing change from their narcissistic, self-pitying, family-abusing, spoiled-brat cousins over in California.”

    ‘DISGRACEFUL’ SWIPE AT PRINCE CHARLES

    Royal aides reportedly want Prince Harry and Meghan Markle to give up their titles after a “disgraceful” swipe at Prince Charles’s and Prince Philip’s parenting skills.

    It came after the Duke of Sussex suggested he had been failed by his dad after he claimed he moved Archie and Meghan to the USA to “break the cycle” of “genetic pain” from his own childhood. 

    Senior courtiers told the Mail on Sunday that the Duke’s attack had prompted a sense of “bewilderment and betrayal” in the palace. 

    Prince Harry’s documentary series with Oprah Winfrey was released earlier this month on Apple TV.

    Harry had previously claimed that he had to make deals with Netflix and Spotify after revealing to Oprah he had been cut off by the Royal Family following Megxit.

    HARRY SPOKE OF FEARS OF LOSING MEGHAN

    The Duke of Sussex told Oprah in a new doc, The Me You Can’t See, that what stopped his wife from giving in to suicide was how “unfair” it would be to him after the death of his mum Princess Diana in 1997.

    He said: “The thing that stopped her from seeing it through was how unfair it would be on me after everything that had happened to my mum and to now be put in a position of losing another woman in my life, with a baby inside of her, our baby.

    “The scariest thing for her was her clarity of thought. She hadn’t ‘lost it.’ … She was completely sane. Yet in the quiet of night, these thoughts woke her up.”
