The Duke and Duchess of Sussex will travel back to the UK within weeks to visit charities and associations close to their hearts, one of their representatives said.  The Sussexes’ spokesperson announced: “Prince Harry and Meghan, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are delighted to visit with several charities close to their hearts in early September.” But their announcement has been met with criticism in some quarters, with many taking to Twitter to express their disquet. Cambridge fan account @loveforcambridg said: “And why is that important and needed to be revealed? They aren’t royals anymore and the vast majority of the people don’t care about these two traitors! They really should stop pretending to still work for the Firm and live their lives in the present, not the past.” Meanwhile, @things_royal said: “Smacks of desperation! ‘We hate the UK and how dare they not fund our security, the British public and the British media are racists, our family is racist…’ But guess what they will come to the UK because they need footage for Netflix!”  And royal commentator Angela Levin added: “Harry and Meghan coming to UK for ‘charities close to their hearts.’ Will the Queen be in Balmoral, and William in USA for Earthshot? Is this part of an attempt at an alternative royal family? Odd time otherwise before H’s ‘bombshell’ memoir.”

PRINCE LOUIS is set to begin primary school this September and has left his London nursery, where the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge spent £14,500 a year for the young royal to attend.
Prince Louis will reportedly join his siblings Princess Charlotte and Prince George at a new primary school this year as Kate and Willian will be moving to Berkshire to be closer to the Queen.
It will be the first time the three royal siblings will attend the same school.
Prince George began his education at the Westacre Montessori School in Norfolk near the royal family estate Anmer Hall.
Both Princess Charlotte and Prince Louis attended Willcocks Nursery School in London, where it costs £14,500 a year per student to attend.
The Nursery describes itself on its website as: “A traditional nursery school which strives to maintain its ethos for high standards, excellence and good manners.”
The Cambridge’s will be attending Lambrook School in Berkshire in September, which is close to Windsor Castle.
It has been reported that Kate and William have visited the school several times this year and the Prince even spoke to students in attendance about their Latin classes.
The new primary school increases its fees for children as they move up through their classes, which means that the Cambridge children will cost £71,344.
As he is just starting primary school, Prince Louis’ education will cost £17,556, Princess Charlotte’s will cost £25,792 and the highest fees will be Prince George’s classes, which will cost £27, 996 per year.
PRINCESS ANNE celebrated her 72nd birthday on Monday, with many royals congratulating her on the big day.
However, it was in 1974 when she was returning from a charity event that the Princess Royal faced what must surely be the most terrifying moment of her life.
As she was travelling back to Buckingham Palace along the mall, the car she was in was shot at as another car blocked the way.
Ian Ball, who was driving the car blocking the Princess Royal’s car, got out and attempted to kidnap her.
Mr Ball shot the chauffeur Alex Callender and security officer James Beaton along with a press photographer Brian McConnell who attempted to intervene.
The Princess Royal was then confronted by Mr Ball who was planning to ask for a £2million ransom who told the royal to get out of the car.
He claimed that he wanted the money to donate it to the NHS.
However, in defiant fashion the Princess responded “not bloody likely.”
Talking about the horrifying ordeal in a documentary two years ago marking her 70th birthday, the Princess Royal said that she remembers each moment “like photographs”.
She told ITV’s Anne: The Princess Royal at 70 that she had vivid memories of the incident but wasn’t sure if she could recall events in the correct chronological order.
She said: “What is interesting is what you remember and how you remember it, because although I thought I remembered everything that happened I would never have been able to swear I could remember in the right order.
“Because they were like photos, individual snapshots. Very clearly.
“Strangely I had thought it before that, ‘what would you do if…’
“One thing about horses and sport is you have to prepare for the unexpected and you’ve got to think through the problems that are likely to occur.
“I suppose that was the discipline which to some extent coloured my thought processes.”
QUEEN ELIZABETH II faces fresh health concerns as Prince Harry and Meghan Markle prepare to visit the UK and after the 96-year-old monarch missed a key event at Balmoral.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are due to return to the UK as they travel to Europe next month for a number of charity events.
They will arrive in Manchester for the One Young Summit on September 5.
The couple will then travel to Germany for the Invictus Games Dusseldorf 2023: One Year to Go event on September 6.
The Sussexes are then set to make another visit to the UK on September 8 when Harry is due to deliver a speech at the WellChild Awards in London.
However, the return of the Queen’s grandson and granddaughter-in-law has renewed concerns about the monarch’s health.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s return comes shortly after the pair touched down in the UK to mark the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations.
One royal expert even suggested the announcement had taken him by surprise.
Speaking to Today, the Daily Mirror’s royal editor Russell Myers claimed the announcement had come quickly.
He said: “We definitely did not think we’d see them for a long while after the frosty reception they got after they turned up for the Platinum Jubilee.
“Will they be seeing any of the Royal Family? That is the big question.”
He also claimed there were “a lot of moving parts in play”.
HER MAJESTY’S maternal grandmother, Cecilia Bowes-Lyon’s Victorian birthplace has been put on the market for £950,000.
The Countess of Strathmore was born at The Old Vicarage in Bedfordshire in 1862 which served as the vicarage for All Saints church.
The property is fit for royalty with updated, modern features while retaining its Victorian heritage and elements.
The house has 2,377 square ft of space with the ground floor boasting a kitchen, study, dining room, sitting room, and an orangery.
The three-bedroom property features one with a dressing room and a separate bathroom on the first floor.
Other modern features include updated insulation and an app-controlled heating system.
Meanwhile, it harks back to its Victorian history with its 8ft high ceilings, grand staircase, tiled fireplaces, and original marble.
The Old Vicarage is located in the highly desirable village of Ridgmont which borders the Woburn Abbey estate owned by the Duke of Bedford.
In 1854, the then Duke of Bedford commissioned the All Saints church which was designed by architect Sir George Gilbert Scott who added a striking spire which can be seen from miles away.
The Queen’s maternal great-grandfather William Charles Cavendish Bentinck, Ms Bowes-Lyon’s father, was a clergyman for the Church of England.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex reported docuseries is unlikely to feature much behind-the-scenes royal content after they were “embarrassingly sidelined” at the Platinum Jubilee, a columnist has claimed.
Writing for news.com.au, the columnist said: “Not only have the fortunes of Netflix lurched wildly since 2020 but so have Harry and Meghan’s.”
She claimed the “magic dust of their royalty has largely dulled in the last two years and the novelty factor has worn off”.

Royal biographer Angela Levin claims the purpose of the Duke and Duchess’s visit to the UK is down to making money.
She said: “They hate us. They do not want to know us. But they want to keep in with us, so they can earn more money.
“(It) could not be more shocking.”

It is unlikely Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will stay with the Queen during their visit.
The monarch is currently residing in Balmoral, Scotland, for her annual summer break.
Instead, it is thought the pair, who employ a team of private bodyguards after losing their status as internationally protected persons since they quit their royal roles in 2020, will stay in Windsor.
Their UK home, Frogmore Cottage, is where Princess Eugenie and her husband Jack Brooksbank were recently living with their son, August.

The couple struck a $140million deal with the TV streaming giant in September 2020.
But in April 2021, Netflix’s fortunes was beginning to change. The co-CEO, Reed Hastings, revealed to journalists the company had lost hundreds of thousands of subscribers for the first time in a decade.
It immediately sent seismic shockwaves through the stock markets in the US as the company saw $75billion wiped off its share values in the space of 24 hours.
The change of fortunes of Netflix also appears to have had a knock-on effect on the Sussexes.
Duke and Duchess of SussexRoyal fans have taken to Twitter to wish the Princess Royal a happy birthday.
@Rosa25733247 said: “Happy Birthday Your Highness Royal Princess Anne. May your day be joyfully blessed. Have a wonderful time with your family.”
@aryamrosi said: “Happy Birthday Princess Anne. The hardest working Royal after the Queen”
On this day 41 years ago, Zara Phillips was christened at Windsor Castle.

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s “supposedly cashed-up future” with their lucrative Netflix deal is starting to look “much less certain”, a royal expert has claimed.
But coupled with Netflix already having $200billion wiped off its value this year so far, some experts have claimed their high aspirations at that time may now not be achievable
Daniela Elser, the Royal Writer for Australian website news.com.au, has now cast doubt over the lucrative futures Meghan and Harry may have been hoping to strike up with Netflix.
She said along with Netflix’s struggles earlier this year, the couple’s “supposedly cashed-up future” came “unstuck”.

Samantha, 57, is suing the Duchess of Sussex, 41, over claims made in her Oprah Winfrey interview and the Finding Freedom unauthorised biography.
A Florida judge has set an October 2023 trial date for the defamation case if they fail to settle or resolve it in mediation.
Samantha, who is is seeking $75,000 (£57,000) in damages, contests Meghan saying in her TV interview that she “grew up as an only child”.

Angela Levin, author of ‘Harry: A Biography of a Prince’, noted the “odd time” of the visit, questioning whether it is an “attempt at an alternative Royal Family”.
Ms Levin tweeted on Monday: “Harry and Meghan coming to UK for ‘charities close to their hearts.’
“Will the Queen be in Balmoral, and William in USA for Earthshot? Is this part of an attempt at an alternative Royal Family?
“Odd time otherwise before H’s ‘bombshell’ memoir.”

The Daily Express understands there are currently no plans for the Sussexes to meet the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge when they travel to the UK in a few weeks time.
Hopes of a reconciliation have been damaged by the revelation that Harry has written a memoir, which is due to be published before the end of the year.
Senior royals and their advisers are on tenterhooks over what will be in the book.

Meghan Markle fans on Twitter have vowed to “fight back” against “bullying” which they have compared to the Firm’s treatment of Princess Diana.
Many were quick to draw a comparison between the late Princess of Wales and Meghan Markle.
Royal commentator Omid Scobie, quoting from the documentary, said: “‘When you put a modern person in an ancient institution they will be destroyed. But once an institution starts destroying people, it’s time to recognize there is something fundamentally wrong with that institution and not the people it destroys.’

Despite Prince Harry’s decision to step down as a senior member of the royal family, should none of the Cambridges become King or Queen, the Duke of Sussex still remains sixth in the line of succession. 
The Duke of Sussex formally stepped away from his royal duties in 2020 and has since made a home for himself and his wife, Meghan Markle, in California with their children Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor and Lilibet Diana Mountbatten-Windsor. 

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex announced they are planning a visit next month to attend a number of charity events in between travelling to Germany to mark one year to go before the Invictus Games 2023.
Their arrival in the UK is at the same time as the Queen’s ongoing visit to Balmoral for her annual summer break.
It has been reported the royal couple may be hoping to meet with the Queen, but some sources have said this might be difficult as Her Majesty may be tied up with other engagements such as the changeover of Prime Minister in September.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s new home is nestled in Home Park in Windsor, just a moment away from the Queen’s permanent residence Windsor Castle.
It was built in in 1831, using parts of the Royal Lodge at the time, which was partly demolished and re-used to construct Princess Adelaide’s cottage.
The Grade II listed property underwent major renovations in 2015 and has been a grace-and-favour property since 1945.
Australian Columnist Daniela Elser claimed the Duchess of Cambridge had worn outifts worth 83,000 Australian dollars (£48,000) in the last 100 days.
Ms Elser said it marked a “very discernible shift in her wardrobe towards the much more costly”.
The royal commentator said that until recent months the “genius” of Kate’s style since becoming a royal had been that she “seamlessly” paired high street items with more high-end pieces.

The Cambridge’s are set to move to their new home in Windsor soon, and it couldn’t come soon enough according to Suzanne Roynon, an expert Interior Therapist.
She told Express.co.uk: “William and Kate clearly value their privacy and want their children, George, Charlotte and Louis to have a wonderful, safe and happy childhood.


The Duke and Duchess of Sussex stepped down as senior royals in March 2020- a move dubbed ‘Megxit’. 
Following the move, they were stripped of their royal patronages and honorary military titles. 
The couple relocated across the pond to Montecito in Santa Barbara where they now live with their two children Archie, three and Lilibet, who turns one next month.
Since leaving the UK the couple has not stepped away from the spotlight, most famously taking part in a controversial interview with Oprah Winfrey in March 2021.

Meghan Markle will soon be coming to the UK for charitable events alongside her husband Prince Harry.
ThE news was hugely welcomed by fans of the Duchess with one, @te_sho, replying: “Wow. My articulate, intelligent Duchess! Can’t wait!”
Another Twitter user, @kajolmomento, said: “Yessss! Meghan will be speaking!! Everyone get yourselves ready!!!”

Royal expert Victoria Ward has said the Cambridge’s are likely to take a summer holiday in Scotland this summer.
She said: “Since schools broke up in July, the Cambridges have enjoyed a UK-based holiday and have been spending time at their Anmer Hall in Norfolk.
“In the coming weeks, they will travel to Scotland for their annual summer break with the Queen at Balmoral before returning to settle into Adelaide Cottage ahead of the new school term.”
The couple are thought to be moving to a new home – Adeleide Cottage – on the Windsor Estate this year.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex will be returning to the UK this autumn.
In September, the royal pair will attend the One Young World summit in Manchester on September 5 – an event which brings together young leaders from across the world.
They will then travel to Germany for an Invictus Games event, and will then come back to the UK for the WellChild awards on September 8.

A commentator has warned of the new challenges the Royal Family are likely to face in the US as William and Kate prepare to visit the States. 
Eric Schiffer said: “Defining the battleground and the death trap today for William will be to not focus closely on the environment and the issues that matter to Gen Z and millennials, including equality and empowerment of women.
“To do it in ways that don’t seem to be merchandising, but are done through action.”
READ MOREReturning to the UK for the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee was “business as usual” for Meghan Markle, a body language expert has said. 
Speaking on behalf of Slingo, Darren Stanton revealed: “Meghan’s body language throughout her time in the Royal family has remained pretty consistent all the way through various ups and downs she and Harry have had.
“Arriving back in the UK to celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee and to reunite with the Royal family, Meghan proved she hasn’t been fazed by past criticism.
“She showed no signs of anxiety, for her it was very much business as usual, and her trademark confidence was consistently present.
“When in front of the public, like at the Thanksgiving service held over the jubilee weekend, Meghan was pictured smiling and waving, making sure to interact with the gathered crowds.”Director of the Democracy Institute, Patrick Basham, told Express.co.uk that Meghan was a candidate Democrats could “pin their hopes on”. 
He said: “Megan Markle is a candidate Democratic voters can project their hopes and preferences on.
“Because yes she is a well-known figure but she is not a well-known political figure.
“Although those who have a sense for politics know that she is of a woke, progressive, left-liberal disposition, we don’t know what she thinks in detail on a wide range of issues. That doesn’t matter for most people.”Meghan Markle should not run for the Democrats in the 2024 US election, according to a new poll of Express.co.uk readers.
A survey by the Democracy Institute for Express.co.uk suggested that Democrats want Meghan Markle to run for US President in 2024 due to traditional politicians being too weak and viewed as failures.
Despite not formally entering politics, the survey found that Meghan came in second place to represent the Democrats in the next election with 19 percent of the vote.
However, Express.co.uk readers disagree about the Duchess of Sussex potentially running for office.
In a poll that ran from 2pm on Tuesday, August 9, to midday on Monday, August 15, Express.co.uk asked readers: “Should Meghan Markle run for the Democrats in the 2024 election?”
A total of 7,190 people responded with the vast majority, 89 percent (6,383 people) answering “no”, Meghan should not run for the Democrats in the next US election.
Meanwhile, 10 percent (731 people) said “yes” she should, and a further one percent (76 people) said they did not know.
READ MOREA royal expert has questioned the transparency of the Royal Family’s finances.
Royal expert Daniela Elser said: “It comes down to this: The Queen and the royal family to this day, receive special treatment from the UK government when it comes to things like taxes and their wills, all the while they are allowed to conceal the true extent of their personal riches.
“For more than a century Britons have swallowed the near total blackout when it comes to the Windsors and their stuffed wallets, but for how much longer?”The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have taken to Twitter to wish Princess Anne a happy birthday. 
The Princess Royal turns 72 today. 
The senior royals were joined also by several enthusiastic fans of the Queen’s only daughter who took to Twitter to wish Princess Anne many happy returns.
Fans decided to praise the member of the Firm for her famous no-nonsense and hard-working attitude.
Twitter user @cambridgecrown wrote in a social media post: “Happy 72nd birthday to HRH Princess Anne.
“The Princess Royal is involved with over 300 charities, organisations and military regiments & is the hardest working member of the Royal Family. Love her no nonsense attitude.”
Wishing a very happy birthday to The Princess Royal today!ud83cudf82
Prince Harry is facing the prospect of a new royal book that could challenge his narrative, a royal commentator has suggested.
Royal journalist Valentine Low has penned new book Courtiers which has seen him speak to a number of palace aides.
Royal commentator Richard Eden said royal courtiers were not trusted by Princess Diana and are “figures that have been really pilloried by Harry and Meghan”.
But Mr Eden suggested that Mr Low’s book may “give a different side of things”.
Speaking on the Mail Plus’ talk show Palace Confidential, Mr Eden said: “They’ve always seen them as this negative, force in the background.
“Everything is always blamed on them.
“Perhaps [this book] will give a different side of things.”
READ MOREMeghan Markle has sparked a royal fan frenzy after it was announced she will deliver a keynote speech within just weeks.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are travelling back to the UK in early September, one of their spokespeople announced earlier today.
They said: “Prince Harry and Meghan, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are delighted to visit with several charities close to their hearts in early September.”
Their first stop will be in Manchester, when the couple will attend this year’s One Young World summit.
Meghan, who has been long associated with this organisation supporting young leaders worldwide, is also to deliver a keynote address on the first day of the summit, One Young World said.
Taking to Twitter shortly after the Sussexes’ spokesperson announced the upcoming trip, the organisation tweeted: “We’re delighted to announce Meghan and Harry, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex will be attending the One Young World Summit in Manchester this September!
“The Duchess will be delivering a keynote address at the Opening Ceremony.”

Meghan Markle may hold a “grudge” against American superstar Katy Perry over a remark the singer made about the Duchess of Sussex’s wedding dress, it has been sensationally claimed.
Prince Harry, 37, is thought to be settling into his American surroundings well but it is claimed Meghan, 41, is upset with her neighbour Katy Perry over a comment made about the Duchess’s wedding dress in 2018.
A source said: “Orlando is very sympathetic towards Harry and Meghan and does reach out if he ever sees anything suspicious in the neighbourhood.”
They added: “However, Meghan is keenly aware of a comment that Katy Perry made in 2018 about her wedding dress and is notorious for holding a grudge.”
Ms Perry had previously joked she “would have done one more fitting” when asked about the wedding during an appearance on Entertainment Tonight to promote American Idol in May of 2018.
Meghan is said to have felt slighted by the remark as it came during a time of immense pressure for the Sussex couple in the build-up to their bombshell exit from the Firm, a move dubbed Megxit.
The LA source said: “While the comment wasn’t meant to be hurtful, Meghan felt under siege at that time and was overwhelmed by arguments with staff, the Duchess of Cambridge, and Thomas Markle.”
READ MOREPrince Charles is the longest-serving heir in UK history, at 72-years-old, after being first in line from the age of three.
When he takes the crown, Prince Charles will become the oldest ever British monarch to ascend to the throne.
Some royalists have argued that Prince Charles should step aside to allow Prince William to become King because he generally tends to enjoy better approval ratings with the public.
Prince Charles has faced controversy over his divorce from Princess Diana and his affair during their marriage with now-wife Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall.
He has also been accused of “meddling” in politics by stating his opinion on issues like the environment and farming, alternative medicine and architecture in private letters to Government ministers.Prince William reportedly gave “powerful advice” to Dame Deborah James’ children about dealing with “similar grief” for Princess Diana, according to husband Sebastien Bowen.
Sebastien, 42, said Prince William “felt like a friend, but he was the future king” during his visit with the family.
He told The Times: “Deborah had a glass of champagne, a glass of wine and a glass of sherry in front of her.
“She hadn’t been allowed a drink for months and the first thing William said was, ‘I’m glad to see you are triple parked’.”
Sebastien told how the Duke offered their two children, Hugo, 14, and Eloise, 12, “powerful advice”.
Sebastien said: “He’s obviously been through similar grief with the loss of his mother so he gave powerful advice to the children that will stay with them forever.”

Prince Andrew, the Duke of York, remains ninth in the royal line of succession, despite being recently stripped of his HRH title and military titles.
The Duke of York lost these titles in the wake of backlash from US civil action over sexual assault allegations – claims he has vehemently and repeatedly denied.
Many decades ago, Prince Andrew was second in line to the throne, behind his older brother, Prince Charles. But now, he is ninth in the order of succession, following the arrival of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s two children: Archie and Lilibet.On Saturday, the Royal Family’s social media profile shared messages of celebration as 70 days had passed since the Platinum Jubilee celebrations in June.

The Queen has been rocked by “never-ending scandal” as the palace braces for a fresh bombshell.
The Queen has been rocked by successive scandals this year including the feud between Prince Harry and William, the legal case against Prince Andrew and a looming biography bombshell, according to Royal columnist Daniela Elser.
Writing in her column for News.au, she said: “The poor woman must be so tired.
“Not only is she still working, more than three decades after most people retire, but her family is a source of never-ending scandal and strain with things only looking like they are going to ramp up more.”
Meanwhile, the Duke of Sussex’s “tell-all” autobiography is expected to land in bookstores ahead of Thanksgiving and Christmas in the United States.
But Ms Elser bluntly forecasted the memoir to potentially become “the most painful chapter yet in the long and sorry tale of Megxit”.
She claimed: “Given we are talking about Harry — a man who went on global TV screens alongside his wife Meghan, Duchess of Sussex to accuse The Firm of racism and neglectful treatment at a time when thousands were dying a day of Covid and while his 99-year-old grandfather was in hospital — does anyone really think all we are going to get is a feel-good read?”
Despite Prince Harry’s decision to step down as a senior member of the royal family, should none of the Cambridges become King or Queen, the Duke of Sussex still remains sixth in the line of succession.
The Duke of Sussex formally stepped away from his royal duties in 2020 and has since made a home for himself and his wife, Meghan Markle, in California with their children Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor and Lilibet Diana Mountbatten-Windsor.Princess Anne is being showered with best wishes by the Queen and royal fans alike as she turns 72 today.

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s refusal to “rebrand themselves” is leading to a flurry of negative publicity, according to royal expert Neil Sean.
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry should “draw a line” under their legal battles and “rebrand themselves,” according to royal expert Neil Sean.
This comes after Prince Harry’s decision last week to file a second lawsuit focused on the refusal to let him pay privately for police protection.
Speaking on his YouTube channel, Mr Sean told viewers that this move could backfire on the Sussexes.
He said that the Sussexes’ refusal to “rebrand’ was leading to a “bigger problem” for the couple.
Mr Sean said: “We have Prince Harry attacking the British Metropolitan Police and Her Majesty’s Government with a second installment of litigation.
“You do think, who advises these people?
“Draw a line under it, and move on.”

The Royal Family line of succession can be confusing, so here is a breakdown:
Prince Charles, the eldest son of the Queen, is first in line to the throne, followed by his eldest son Prince William and his first born Prince George. 
When Princess Charlotte was born the law was changed by the 16 countries in the Commonwealth headed by Queen Elizabeth II who agreed that birth order, not gender, would determine succession.

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are to return to the UK in early September, their spokesperson has announced.
The Sussexes’ spokesperson announced: “Prince Harry and Meghan, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are delighted to visit with several charities close to their hearts in early September.”
While in the UK, Meghan and Harry will head to Manchester for the One Young World summit taking place on September 5.
On September 8, they will attend the WellChild Awards, the yearly event taking place to celebrate extraordinary seriously ill children and young people.
During their trip across the pond, Meghan and Harry will also travel to Germany, on September 6.
There, they will attend the Invictus Düsseldorf 2023 One Year to Go – marking the beginning of the 12-month countdown to the next Invictus Games taking place in the city.
READ MOREPrince Charles is reducing the amount of time he spends on charity work, a royal expert has said.
The Express’s Richard Palmer has said the Duke of Cornwall is “whittling down” the time spent on his charities in preparation for becoming King.
Meghan Markle has been humiliated again in a new poll which reveals UK voters think that Donald Trump as President would be better for Britain than if she made a successful bid for the White House.
The revelation in an exclusive Techne UK poll for Express.co.uk follows one from the US earlier this week which also revealed American voters would choose the former President over her.
This is despite growing support for the Duchess of Sussex to make a White House bid among Democrats.
Former President Trump and the Duchess have had a feud since she snubbed him when he made an official visit to the UK and was hosted by the Queen at a dinner that Ms Markle refused to attend.
