Meghan Markle news – Netflix Pearl humiliation ‘leaves Meg with NOTHING’ as Sussexes face ‘complete disaster’

Janelle A

MEGHAN Markle has been left with “nothing” after Netflix chose to axe Pearl leaving the Sussexes facing “complete disaster”, an expert says.

Pearl – which followed the story of a 12-year-old girl exploring famous women in history – was set to be the streaming giant’s first animated series.

But the show, created by the Duchess of Sussex and in its development stage, was canned by Netflix last weekend due to a series of cutbacks at the streaming service.

And one critic says the “disaster” proves Meghan and Harry “are only good at moaning about the Royal Family“.

Commentator Rafe Heydel-Mankoo told GB News: “Well it’s a complete disaster for Harry and Meghan.

“As you know, Netflix is having big problems with a dip in subscriber numbers, falling revenues, plummeting share prices and having spent too much on other problems, and is cutting back – particularly on animated series.

“So while Harry’s Invictus documentary is carrying on, there is nothing for Meghan to show for it and it’s really calling into question whether they can walk the walk. They’re good at talking the talk.

“They signed up to Spotify but have only produced one podcast so far, the Netflix deal has been in place for over a year now and there’s very little to show for it.

“It looks as if, you know, apart from moaning about the royals there’s not much that they’re able to do.”

  • Prince William reveals he is a ‘secret clubber’ 

    Prince William has revealed he is a “secret clubber” – with a host of favourite anthems to his name.

    The Duke of Cambridge, 39, may no longer have time to hit the clubs as a dad-of-three and future king.

    But his love of early 2000s dance music remains firmly intact, The Times reports.

    The duke reeled off his favourite dance tracks while presenting DJ Simon Mayo his MBE at Buckingham Palace.

    The DJ, WHO presents a daily show on Greatest Hits Radio (GHR), said he mentioned his love of the rave classic Insomnia by Faithless as well as Spiller’s Groovejet, featuring Sophie Ellis-Bextor.

    Of the moment William handed him his award for services to radio broadcasting, Mayo said: “I suggested that he was clearly a bit of a clubber.

    “He said maybe a secret clubber. I plugged Drivetime on GHR obviously [and] suggested he was just the right age to be joining us.”

  • Kate ‘most similar’ to Princess Diana

    A body language expert has claimed that The Duchess of Cambridge’s “confident” appearance reveals how similar she is to Princess Diana.

    Kate presented the Queen Elizabeth II Award for British Design at an event for the British Fashion Council this week.

    Analysing her body language, Darren Stanton said the Duchess “doesn’t lack confidence” without the Duke of Cambridge.

    Speaking on behalf of Betfair Casino he added: “It’s clear that Kate is one of the most popular members of the senior Royal family now, who is able to connect with those from all walks of life and ages because of her sincerity and genuineness.

    “It’s easy to see the similarities between Kate and Princess Diana and we haven’t seen a member of the royal family emulate or encapsulate the popularity and empathy that Diana had as Kate has done in recent years”

  • Prince Harry ‘set to play in polo tournament’ during Queen’s jubilee

    PRINCE Harry is set to play in a polo tournament during the Queen’s Jubilee – casting doubts over his presence at the royal festivities.

    The Duke of Sussex last week played in a Californian polo tournament – and has signed up to play in another event scheduled at the same times as the majority of Jubilee activities.

    The 37-year-old prince has played polo all his life and has joined a team with his good friend and sportsman, Nacho Figueras.

    It emerged yesterday that he will play the entirety of the polo season with his professional chums, according to royal reporter Omid Scoobie.

    And one of the fixtures will clash with his gran’s celebrations – with the Cheval Athletics USPA Intra-Circuit tournament due to take place June 3-19.

    It means the Duke could miss joining his family on Buckingham Palace’s balcony among other major celebrations.

  • Kate and William’s next joint engagement confirmed

    Kate Middleton and Prince William look set to attend a poignant event next week.

  • Meg’s ‘misunderstanding’

    A royal author has claimed that Meghan Markle has a fundamental sense of ‘misunderstanding’ when joining the Royal Family.

    Tina Brown, Princess Diana’s biographer, said the Duchess of Sussex didn’t like suppressing her opinions.

    She added: “She saw the palaces and Diana as this global humanitarian superstar, but forgot that for 16 or 17 years Diana worked like a dog within the royal family doing a great deal of humdrum assignments.”

    Speaking on the Duke and Duchess’s 2018 tour of Australia, Ms Brown claimed Meghan “didn’t like it at all”.

  • ‘A complete disaster’ for Meghan and Harry

  • ITV’s Lorraine Kelly pours scorn on Prince Harry

    LORRAINE Kelly reacted with shock at the news Prince Harry may miss the Queen’s Jubilee celebrations to play polo.

    Revealing the latest story about the Duke of Sussex, the ITV star added: “What? What? What?”

    She said: “This morning it’s being reported Prince Harry will miss the Queen’s big Jubilee celebrations in the summer because of playing polo.

    “He’s got a polo schedule in America. What? What? What?”

    A royal expert in the studio replied: “It does appear that Prince Harry has signed up to play a full season with a polo team in California.

    “Now, is this the clearest indication whether he will or won’t be at the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations.”

    Lorraine added: “It’s a niche sport it’s fair to say. I don’t think anybody would be upset if he missed for such a huge occasion as this Jubilee. Surely – surely, surely.

    “It’s that iconic balcony photograph, that’s what they want. If Prince Harry won’t be there presumably Meghan won’t be there and the kids.”

  • Prince William’s music taste

    The prince revealed in a podcast last year how his family play Shakira’s ‘Waka Waka’ on repeat.

    He explained at the time: “What I’ve been amazed by is how much my children already have inherited my family’s love of music.

    “Most mornings there’s a massive fight between Charlotte and George as to what song is played.

    “And I have to, now, basically prioritise that one day someone does this one, and another day it’s someone else’s turn.

    ‘So, George gets his go, then Charlotte gets her go. Such is the clamour for the music.

    “One of the songs that the children are loving at the moment is Shakira, Waka Waka. There’s a lot of hip movements!”

    The duke also said the song that gets him going is AC/DC’s 1990 rock hit Thunderstruck.

  • Her Majesty shows her cheeky side

    THE QUEEN smiles cheekily in a previously unseen portrait that’s been unveiled for her milestone Platinum Jubilee.

    In the stunning new image taken 19 years ago, Her Majesty – photographed by Rob Munday – is seen smiling wryly to the camera.

    The photograph, entitled Platinum Queen: Felicity, went unnoticed in Munday’s Royal archives until he rediscovered it last summer.

    It shows the Queen reacting to a mischievous aside from her confidante and senior dresser Angela Kelly as the pair prepared for the shoot at Buckingham Palace.

    Mr Munday said: “The Queen’s daily life is so full of responsibility and duty that it was wonderful to see this fleeting moment of relaxation and pleasure.

    “It is an uplifting portrait, so different from many of the more sombre portraits commissioned in recent years and a befitting celebration for her Platinum Jubilee.”

  • Garden parties make a return

    The monarch welcomes more than 30,000 guests to the palaces over the course of each year.

    The parties are seen as an important way for her to meet people from across the country who have made a positive impact in their communities.

    The events were cancelled in 2020 and 2021 as a result of the pandemic.

    However, it was announced they’ll make a return this year for the Jubilee.

  • Meghan left humiliated

    MEGHAN Markle has been left humiliated after her “woke bubble” was “burst” by Netflix axing her series, a writer has sensationally claimed.

    Over the weekend it was announced Meghan’s upcoming animated series Pearl was quietly dumped by Netflix.

    Prince Harry‘s wife served as executive producer on the show, working with a number of bigwigs including David Furnish, Elton John‘s husband.

    But writing for The Telegraph, Matthew Lynn said the Duchess’ “dire-sounding Pearl was a perfect example” of how Netflix’ has “been captured by a brand of preachy, politically correct, woke programming that is at risk of driving away audiences”.

    He suggests Pearl’s drop from Netflix demonstrates how streaming companies “are starting to work out that sanctimonious woke programming doesn’t pull in the viewers.”

    Lynn continued: “Dull, worthy, preachy, and sermonising (what were the chances that the inspiring female leaders featured would include an animated Mrs Thatcher discussing the importance of controlling inflation, or indeed a CGI Queen Elizabeth I on the making of the modern world in Tudor England? I am just taking a wild guess here, but possibly not very high), it embodied the worst of Woke-flix.

    “But it goes a lot deeper than that. Very soon the entertainment industry will have to get back to being what it should have always remained: an entertainment industry.

    “Its values should be neither right or left of centre, and with a few obvious boundaries such as preventing racism or sexism, it shouldn’t promote any political agenda.”

  • Desmond’s actor expresses joy as he picks up CBE

    Actor and musician Ram John Holder, 88, also collected his CBE at the ceremony today.

    The 88-year-old, who is best known for playing Porkpie in the TV series Desmond’s, said: “It is just beyond one’s dreams of what one can achieve – professionally I’m talking about – and of course the award, the accolade.

    “I couldn’t have pictured it better.”

    The actor later added: “I’m an old person now but it would be fantastic to dig up my parents’ grave and say: ‘Mummy and Daddy, look what’s happened to your boy.’

    “It’s a lifetime achievement. It means a sort of cap – not an end because I still have a few more years and work to do – but it has meant total fulfilment for the work that we have done and the recognition and I’m very, very happy.”

  • Great British sizzler forecast for Queen’s Jubilee

    Forecasters are predicting a 30C sizzler for the Queen’s Jubilee, with temperatures potentially reaching highs of 30C.

    Heatwave conditions will also hit in the run up to the four-day Bank Holiday bonanza, helping sun-starved Brits celebrate the Queen’s mighty achievement in style.

    Weather maps show the UK burning a deep orange over the celebratory period – and meteorologists reckon the mercury could top 30C in some parts.

  • Queen won’t attend any of the Buckingham Palace garden parties this year 

    THE Queen will not be attending any of the garden parties this year, Buckingham Palace has announced.

    No reason has yet been given as to why Her Majesty won’t greet guests at events in May and June, although she has recently had issues with her mobility.

    Four parties will take place in the coming weeks. The format of the events means that the Queen would have had to stand for more than an hour and move down the lines greeting visitors.

    A statement released this morning reads: “Her Majesty The Queen will be represented by other members of the Royal Family at this year’s Garden Parties, with details on attendance to be confirmed in due course. 

    “The Queen has given permission for the Not Forgotten Association Annual Garden Party to be hosted by the Princess Royal, as the charity’s patron, in the Buckingham Palace Garden on Thursday, May 12.”

    The Not Forgotten Association provides entertainment, leisure and recreation for the serving wounded, injured or sick and for ex-service men and women with disabilities.

    Marcus Brigstocke revealed he has filmed scenes in a hospital alongside the actor playing Hasnat Khan — the heart surgeon who had a love affair with Diana, played by Elizabeth Debicki.

    Prasanna Puwanarajah has the role of journalist Bashir.

    Marcus said: “We’re in hospital and watching the interview that she gave to Martin Bashir.

    “I’m with the surgeon. I didn’t have lines in the scene and I was told by the director, ‘Could you say a bit while we’re watching it to kind of needle the guy?’.
