Meghan Markle and Prince Harry will not have custody of their children: report

Fox News Wed, Aug 22 12:33 AM GMT+3


The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have a few unconventional hurdles to leap when parenting their three children George, Charlotte and Louis. And the same rule may apply to Harry and Meghan.

First, there’s the insatiable paparazzi, always keen to snap the children on their way to school.

Then there are the many confusing royal etiquette rules. After that, there are the official royal events, which weren’t exactly planned with rambunctious toddlers in mind.

And then, lastly, there’s the unusual custody arrangement with the Queen.

Even the most knowledgeable fan might not be aware of this, but according to royal historians, Prince William and Kate Middleton don’t have legal custody of their own children.

That, in fact, belongs to the children’s 92-year-old great-grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II.

“The sovereign has legal custody of the minor grandchildren,” royal expert Marlene Koenig told news.com.au.

“This goes back to King George I [who ruled in the early 1700s], and the law’s never been changed. He did it because he had a very poor relationship with his son, the future King George II, so they had this law passed that meant the King was the guardian of his grandchildren.”

The law is more than 300 years old and was passed by a majority of 10 out of 12 judges in 1717, who decided the monarch’s “right of supervision extended to his grandchildren and this right of right belongs to His Majesty, King of the Realm, even during their father’s lifetime”.

According to Koenig, who has written two books on the history of the British royal family and had dozens of articles published in the "Eurohistory Journal," the law was legislated once again in 1772, when King George III was in power, and has never been superseded by new legislation.

The custody law still stands today, and over recent decades has affected the way the royals parent their children, especially when it comes to matters of upbringing, travel and education.

“When [Princes Harry and William] were little, Prince Charles asked the Queen if both children could fly on a plane together to Scotland, to which the Queen said yes,” Koenig said.

“Technically, they needed permission for travel. The Queen has the last word on parenting decisions like that.”

It wasn’t the only time the Queen’s tick of approval was sought.

An absence of the Queen’s permission meant Princess Diana was not allowed to fly with her children to Australia shortly before her death, and later required Prince Charles ask for permission before he sent William, then a teenager, off on a holiday camp in the USA in the late 1990s.

Another subtle nod to the unusual custody arrangement was in the 1996 divorce agreements between the Duke and Duchess of Wales, Prince Charles and Diana, and the Duke and Duchess of York, Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson.

“Custody is not included [in those divorce documents] because they did not legally have custody of their children to begin with,” Koenig said.

The law also explains why Princess Diana’s wishes for her brother and mother to be Harry and William’s legal guardians, as laid out in her will, were swiftly ignored by the Palace. Put simply, Diana did not have the final say on the boys’ upbringing or anything to do with the “care and control” of her two sons — the Queen did.

Perhaps frustratingly, William and Kate shouldn’t expect to receive legal custody of their three children any time soon, either.

According to Koenig, in the event of the Queen’s passing, the legal custody of George, Charlotte, Louis, and any other grandchildren in the palace will be passed onto their grandfather Prince Charles who would then be king.

The situation will be the same for any future children born to the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.

Thankfully, Koenig says the palace “doesn’t make a big deal” out of the law in 2018, and doubts Charles, who she describes as “very respectful of his son’s parenting”, would ever overshadow important or meaningful decisions.

“He understands they want to raise their children privately … the only thing Charles might ask for is more pictures,” she joked.



Princess Charlotte Is Set To Inherit The Fanciest Royal Title Ever

One day, but hopefully not too soon because long live the Queen, Prince Charles will become the King of England. You know, Prince Charles? The Queen's eldest son, the man who constantly looks super chuffed? This dude!

Anyway, once he's done owning the throne (read: once he passes away 😬), Prince William will become King of England. And then, in the midst of all these royal changes, a whole MESS of title switch-ups will take place, including for lil Princess Charlotte.

Let's rewind for a minute before we get to Charlotte. The first wave of title changes will occur as soon as Charles becomes King, right? So Prince William will presumably be gifted his dad's former title, the Prince of Wales, an honor that's been bestowed upon the heir apparent since the 14th century. And Kate Middleton will likely become Princess of Wales, just like Diana before her.

But unlike her parents, Charlotte's title probably won't change when Charles is King. However, royal experts speculate that when Charlotte's dad takes the throne, she may inherit a title from Princess Anne:

While most of us commoners refer to Princess Anne as, well, Princess Anne, she's technically the "Princess Royal," a title usually given to the monarch's eldest daughter. (Quick review: Charlotte is most definitely future monarch William's eldest daughter.) But before you're all "Woaaaahhh, Charlotte's gonna be so fancy when her dad becomes King," there are a few catches to keep in mind.

1. The Princess Royal title isn't automatically inherited. Queen Elizabeth didn't bother giving Anne her ultra fancy moniker until she was 36, so presumably she had to earn it.

2. There can only be one Princess Royal at a time, and Anne is only 68 years old. So even if Princess Charlotte gets the title, she won't be able to use it until her great aunt passes away-which hopefully won't be for a long time. Long live the Princess Royal!

By the way, if you want a little history lesson that I *promise* is super interesting, the Princess Royal title was basically made up by King Charles I's wife Queen Henrietta. Girlfriend just wanted to make sure her daughter was extra fancy, which is how Princess Mary became the first person to carry the name. Here she is looking super salty and holding an orange, as ya do.





Why Princess Eugenie Can't Wear a Tiara, but Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton Can

Isabel Jones,InStyle Fri, Aug 24 5:15 PM GMT+3

A tiara isn’t exactly an everyday accessory — even when your name is preceded by a title like “Princess,” “Duchess,” or “Queen.”

Though the royals of our Disney-inspired fantasies slap on a diamond-encrusted topper first thing every morning, in reality the piece is reserved only for very special occasions. In Kate Middleton’s seven years as the Duchess of Cambridge, she’s only donned a tiara six times (in public, that is — she probably brushes her teeth in one daily). The most notable tiara moment for Middleton was of course at her 2011 royal wedding, upon which she wore the Cartier Halo Scroll tiara (an 18th birthday present to Queen Elizabeth from her father, King George VI).

The newly-minted Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle, has worn a tiara only once: at her May 19 wedding to Prince Harry. She opted for the Queen Mary Diamond Bateau, which was passed down to Queen Elizabeth from Queen Mary in 1953.
But as for Princesses Eugenie and Beatrice, who were born into royalty as opposed to marrying into the family as Kate and Meghan did, it is not customary to wear a tiara (flamboyant hats are fine, though). The reason? Tiaras are traditionally reserved for married members of the British royal family. Therefore, Eugenie will likely don her first dazzling headpiece at her wedding to Jack Brooksbank on Oct 12.


Though this is the traditional approach, there have been exceptions to the rule throughout history. Queen Elizabeth’s only daughter, Princess Anne, wore one at the state opening of Parliament years before she wed her first husband, Mark Phillips.

The Queen’s sister, Princess Margaret, also donned the accessory ahead of her marriage to Antony Armstrong-Jones — in fact, she wore one often.



Wedding dresses with pockets surge in popularity as women prioritise comfort on their big day


Pockets are quickly becoming an unlikely hot topic in conversations surrounding gender equality, after a recent report revealed vast disparities in pocket size in men’s and women’s jeans, with the latter being significantly smaller.

Now, the discussion has reached the bridal market, as bridal designers have noticed a rise in demand for gowns with pockets.
Speaking to The Independent, Hamish Shephard, founder of online wedding planner site Bridebook, explains that the trend reflects a shift in almost every area of contemporary weddings.

“The addition of pockets to wedding dresses has gained particular momentum this year and is sure to consider doing so over the next few years,” he says.
“From the very top bridal designers to high street bridal lines, we are seeing pockets in wedding dresses being embraced as both a stylish and practical addition.
“Perfect for having your phone to whip out for selfies on the dance floor.”
Robin Weil, founder and CEO of Weddingplanner.co.uk, agrees that the trend of pockets in gowns has risen as a direct result of brides prioritising comfort and practicality.
“We’ve noticed this trend now over the last few seasons,” he tells The Independent.
“I think they’re pretty practical and it looks like lots of brides agree, but they’re more useful for having a tissue rather than your phone.”

However, a bride might simply want pockets in their gown so as to have somewhere to rest their hands.

One bridal designer explains how traditionally, it would’ve been considered poor manners to stand in an expensive gown on your wedding day with your hands in your pockets.
Now, Maria Yiannikaris, co-owner of Mirror Mirror Couture, explains that it wouldn’t be a problem and she has designed a number of gowns with pockets for her clients.
“Society has changed and everything’s got a lot more casual,” she tells The Times.
A sales manager at London bridal boutique Sassi Holford has also noticed an increase in brides requesting pocketed gowns.
“Customers get very excited when they try on a dress with pockets,” Christine Sancha tells The Times.
“It tends to make them feel more comfortable.”

When it comes to style, it seems that comfort reigns supreme, even on your wedding day.



Surprise! Meghan Markle's Mom Doria Has Been Staying with Her and Prince Harry All Summer

Cosmopolitan Alanna Greco,Cosmopolitan 12 hours ago

From Cosmopolitan

In a lovely turn of events, I am here with some NICE news about Meghan Markle's family. And yes, as anyone probably could have guessed, it has nothing to do with Thomas, and is all about Doria.

While there have been reports that Meg's mom Doria Ragland will be moving to England shortly, apparently she beat everyone to the punch and had been staying with Harry and Meghan for a good part of the summer!

Royal commentator Omid Scobie took to Twitter to share that sources confirm that "Duchess Meghan's mom Doria Ragland visited Prince Harry and her daughter for an extended stay at their Oxfordshire home this summer" and that "Doria is said to enjoy a close relationship with Harry and continues to be a pillar of strength for Meghan."

Omid Scobie


ICMI: Sources confirm to @ABC @GMA that Duchess Meghan's mom Doria Ragland visited Prince Harry and her daughter for an extended stay at their Oxfordshire home this summer.
Doria is said to enjoy a close relationship with Harry and continues to be a pillar of strength for Meghan.

Unclear how Doria was able to pull this off without anyone noticing until now, but with her stealthy press-avoiding skills and closeness to Harry and Meghan, I say that Doria deserves her own royal title STAT.



Why Not Everyone’s Excited About Princess Eugenie’s Upcoming Wedding


For fans of the British royal family, 2018 has felt like a windfall. It’s only September, and the Queen has already welcomed two new great-grandchildren-Prince Louis and Lena Tindall, who arrived in April and June, respectively. And we’ve already seen our first royal wedding. Prince Harry and Meghan Markle tied the knot back in May in a ceremony that was watched by just over 29 million people in the United States alone.

October will bring the second of two royal nuptials at Windsor Castle this year, when Princess Eugenie marries her fiancé Jack Brooksbank. But not everyone is so thrilled with the upcoming event.

Princess Eugenie is not a working royal. While she is the daughter of Prince Andrew and the granddaughter of the Queen, Eugenie does not carry out engagements in support of the monarch and does not play an official royal role.

On occasion she makes appearances at large family events such as the annual Trooping the Colour parade, but she has her own career in the art world. And yet, the public will pay for security at her wedding, a cost estimated to be around 2 million pounds, given her choice to take a celebratory carriage ride around Windsor after she and Brooksbank say "I do."

As a spokesperson shared in a statement earlier this year, “Costs for security will be shared by individual police forces and the local council but all other costs for the wedding will be met privately.”

Even though the royal family, most specifically the Queen and Prince Andrew, will pay for the bulk of the day’s price tag, the security bill is causing controversy.

“Who’s heard of Princess Eugenie anyway?” Chris Williamson, a member of Parliament said in an interview with Sky News. “She carries out no royal functions, no useful purpose to the public sphere and yet we’re having to spend this kind of money.”

“There is no need to have such glamorous events," he continued, calling the cost "completely unacceptable."

Williamson isn’t the only one opposed to the taxpayer expense.

Republic, an antimonarchist campaign group, has called for "no public funding of Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank’s wedding."

“The estimated £2 million for security is just the tip of the royal wedding iceberg," a spokesperson for the organization said.

“This money could be better spent and the government should act now in the interest of taxpayers and public services by calling for spending to be limited. The royals have shown time and time again that they can’t keep their royal wedding spending in check. Republic is calling on the government to publish a report of all costs to taxpayers so we know exactly how our money is being spent...I wish Eugenie and Jack all the best on their special day, but a debate about taxpayer funding of the minor royals is long overdue.”

But Eugenie shouldn't take Republic's stance too personally. They'd like to see the whole monarchy abolished in favor of a democratic republic.

At this point it is unclear if any anti-monarchist protests are planned for the day, but we'll be sure to update should one become announced.






What happens if the Queen dies before Prince Philip?

The Queen became the longest reigning monarch in 2015 and this year marked her 66th year on the throne.

It’s hard to imagine a world without her and her husband, the Duke of Edinburgh, who retired from public engagements last year.

Her Majesty celebrated her 92nd birthday this year and is said to be in remarkably good health – but what happens if Prince Philip, 97, outlives his wife?

Well, according to historian and owner of the blog Royal Musings,  Marlene Koeing, who spoke to Royal Central, she said that Philip’s rank would not change.

She explained Prince Charles is the heir to the throne and he will have to make a choice, if his father will be before Prince William.

She also added that Philip would not become the King Father, “he would not be titled the King Father, as he is not king.”

This is unlike Queen Elizabeth, who became the Queen Mother after the death of her husband King George VI in 1952, as she already held the ‘Queen’ title.

She was always referred to as Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother, to avoid confusion with her daughter, The Queen.

Prince Harry Just Said the Funniest Thing About 'Bumping' into Queen Elizabeth at Buckingham Palace

When it comes to his grandmother, Prince Harry is extremely protective, but that doesn't stop his wicked sense of humor from coming out.

According to The Telegraph, Prince Harry recently opened up about "bumping" into Queen Elizabeth II while at Buckingham Palace, and his words are pretty relatable. In a forthcoming documentary about the royal family, Prince Harry apparently speaks with a group of visitors from the Caribbean, who are taking part in a new scheme initiated by the Queen for hospitality professionals. In his typically jokey manner, Harry asks them, "You guys have spent way more time in Buckingham Palace than I ever have-and you’ve only been here two weeks. Have you bumped into the Queen yet?"

And then in a hilarious moment, which gives us a little insight into the prince's relationship with his regal grandmother, Prince Harry reveals, "If you suddenly bump into her in the corridor, don’t panic. I know you will. We all do!"

What Harry has to panic about when he meets Queen Elizabeth in a corridor in Buckingham Palace is anyone's guess.

The ITV series in which Prince Harry will feature is called Queen of the World, and will give viewers a behind-the-scenes look into the royal family. As well as including some of the Queen's home videos of the family, we will also get to see Meghan Markle, the Duchess of Sussex, reunited with her infamous Givenchy wedding gown and veil before they go on display as part of a new exhibition.

Why Kate Middleton and Prince William Insist Their Kids Go Grocery Shopping

Delish Harper's Bazaar Staff,Delish 13 hours ago

As members of the British royal family, it's hard to imagine that Princess Charlotte, Prince George, and Prince Louis live ordinary lives. But according to a new report, parents Kate Middleton and Prince William do everything they can to ensure that their children live as normal lives as possible.

Us Weekly reports that, according to a "royal insider," "William and Kate very much prioritize bringing up the children in as normal an environment as possible."

Apparently, this normality takes precedence throughout every day, and starts from first thing in the morning. Per Us Weekly, Prince George is driven to his school, Thomas’s of Battersea in London, by either his mom or dad.

Meanwhile, Princess Charlotte, whose nursery is within walking distance of the family home, is walked there by one of her parents. Instead of enlisting a member of staff with these duties, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge endeavor to put their children first.

And when it comes to their home in Kensington Palace's Apartment 1A, Princess Charlotte is apparently a great hostess. Per the source, "She’ll come up to guests and ask them if they want tea or coffee or offer them sweets-so adorable!"

This isn't the first time that Kate and William have seen trying to keep their children's lives normal. Earlier this month, Kate was spotted doing some back-to-school shopping with the kids, as they looked for new school shoes. The Duchess has often been seen grocery shopping for the family, too.

And the Daily Mail's royal correspondent Rebecca English previously reported that the Duchess of Cambridge even took Prince George to school the day after she gave birth to her third child, Prince Louis, which is more than a little impressive.



How Prince Harry's Wedding Ring Breaks Royal Tradition

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are no strangers to breaking royal traditions, and it looks like the Duke of Sussex is adding another offbeat trait.

Hello! Magazine noticed something different about Prince Harry's wedding ring during his recent visit to the Royal Marines Commando Training Centre, where photographers got an up close look at the band. Harry went against the norm of previous male royals by "opting for a modern, platinum design rather than the classic Welsh gold usually favored by his family."

Hello! points out that it's surprising Prince Harry wears his wedding ring at all. His brother, Prince William, and his grandfather, Prince Philip, do not wear their wedding rings. Harry's father, Prince Charles, does wear his wedding ring, but it's a stark contrast from the Duke of Sussex's sleek and slender design.

As Hello! noticed, "Charles’ ring is made from classic gold, like all other wedding rings in the royal family, which is traditionally gifted by the Queen from her personal collection of Welsh gold from the Clogau St. David Gold Mine in Dolgellau, Wales."

Another key difference? Harry displays his band on the ring finger, while Charles wears his gold band on the pinky finger.
