WILLIAM and Kate 'have no control' over Harry & Meghan's actions as the Sussexes stole the limelight once again with their Time 100 cover.

Royal expert and author Duncan Larcombe says Kate and William will be concerned about the photos, telling OK! : "Kate and William are in danger of being dragged into a transatlantic popularity contest.

"They will feel anxious over the cover and everything Harry and Meghan do as it always seems to reflect on them.

"William and Kate are concerned about absolutely everything that comes out of America in regards to Harry and Meghan, especially Harry's tell-all warts and all memoir that's gonna hit the shelves sometime next year. They have no control over the narrative."

Meanwhile, Prince Philip's decisions on who would share in his assets won't be revealed because of his wife's constitutional role, judges say.

The royal, who died aged 99 on April 9, had an estimated £30million to share among loved ones. But the details of the total amount, as well as those bequeathed, won't be revealed for almost 100 years – if at all.

    WHERE DO PRINCE HARRY AND MEGHAN MARKLE LIVE?

    Prince Harry and Meghan live in an £11million mansion in Monticito, Santa Barbara, California.

    The area is home to A-listers such as Oprah Winfrey and Ellen Degeneres.

    It's the first permanent home in North America for the couple, who, since stepping down from royal duties in January, have rented homes in California and Canada.

    This is also the first home that the couple have owned as private citizens.

    After Harry and Meghan got married, the pair moved to Frogmore Cottage on the private Windsor Estate.

    It sits on 33 acres of private gardens within the Home Park, adjoining Windsor Castle in Berkshire.

    It was there in the adjoining grounds of Windsor Castle that the pair married on May 19, 2018, at St George's Chapel, followed by their reception in Frogmore House's grounds.

    The subsequent refurb cost taxpayers a whopping £2.4million, which the couple have now paid back.

    Their former residence boasted a designer kitchen and a refitted bathroom.

    The main renovation took about six months.

      Prince Harry's mum Princess Diana died in a car crash in Paris in 1997.

      Speaking to Newsweek, he recalled the decision — made on his behalf — for him to follow his mum Diana’s coffin after her death.

      Harry said: “My mother had just died, and I had to walk a long way behind her coffin, surrounded by thousands of people watching me while millions more did on television.

      “I don’t think any child should be asked to do that, under any circumstances.”

      Harry has also previously revealed he battled with depression following his mum's tragic death.

      He said he “shut down all his emotions” for two decades after losing his mother Princess Diana.

      WHAT IS PRINCE HARRY'S FULL NAME?

      Prince Harry’s full name is Henry Charles Albert David, and he is styled as His Royal Highness Prince Henry of Wales.

      He uses Wales in lieu of a traditional surname as was referred to as Captain Harry Wales when in the military.

      The Queen officially gave her consent for his wedding to Meghan, releasing a statement using the couple’s real names.

      It said: “'My Lords, I declare My Consent to a Contract of Matrimony between My Most Dearly Beloved Grandson Prince Henry Charles Albert David of Wales and Rachel Meghan Markle, which Consent I am causing to be signified under the Great Seal and to be entered in the Books of the Privy Council.”

      Prince Harry needed her permission to marry under the Succession to the Crown Act.

      The prince attained the rank of Captain in 2011, working his way up from Cornet, or Second Lieutenant in 2006, to Lieutenant in 2008.

      The flame-haired prince is 1.86m (or 6'1" feet) tall, and was born Prince Henry of Wales on September 15, 1984, and is 37 years old.

      He's the younger son of Prince Charles and the late Princess Diana.

      Following his marriage to Meghan Markle on May 19, 2018, the Prince assumed his new title as the Duke of Sussex.

      He still holds this title and remains a prince despite deciding not to use His Royal Highness any more.

      Harry served in the Army for 10 years, undertaking two tours of Afghanistan and rising to the rank of Captain.

      After the Army, he spent his time on his charity work and promoting causes such as the Invictus Games as well as being more open about mental health issues.

      Six months after Meghan tried to get him fired from Good Morning Britain, Piers returned to the pub where the pair first met.

      PRINCE WILLIAM REVEALS MOMENT YOUNG BOY SWORE AT PRINCE PHILIP… BUT SAYS HIS REACTION WAS HILARIOUS

      PRINCE William has revealed the moment a young boy swore at Prince Philip – but says his reaction was hilarious.

      The royal told how the teenager had been completing a hike for his Duke of Edinburgh Award when he made the rude remark to the scheme’s founder.

      The Duke of Cambridge and Philip came across two young walkers on the Queen’s Balmoral estate as the teens took part in a expedition to achieve their award.

      William said: “[Philip] stopped and wound down his window and said, ‘Good morning. How are you getting on?’

      “To which the smallest young chap at the back turned round and effectively said, ‘Jog on Grandpa!’”

      HARRY & MEGHAN’S SIGNATURE HOLLYWOOD POSE IS ‘UNNATURAL AND STAGED’ WITH ONE TELLING SIGN GIVING IT AWAY, SAYS EXPERT

      The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are regularly seen staring into one another’s eyes whenever a camera comes out.

      And according to body language expert Judi James, while a very romantic shot, the pose is far from the natural and candid shot that the pair want to convey.

      Here she tells Fabulous Digital what the Sussex’s signature pose REALLY means…

      “Eye-ball to eye-ball gazing can be used by a couple to transmit all sorts of messages, from ‘I love you’ to ‘Put that pint down, we’re leaving!’.

      When a couple use prolonged bouts like Harry and Meghan though, it signals exclusivity; an engagement in intimate and private non-verbal conversations, and emphatically equal amounts of devotion and romantic attraction.

      PRINCE ANDREW ‘SET TO LEAVE BALMORAL HIDEAWAY TO SEE PREGNANT PRINCESS BEATRICE IN HOSPITAL’

      PRINCE Andrew will have to quit his Balmoral hideaway if he wants to see his heavily pregnant daughter in hospital.

      Princess Beatrice, 33, was admitted on Friday. Husband Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi, 38, was believed to be with her.

      Andrew has been in hiding for some time on the Queen’s 50,000-acre Scottish estate as lawyers try to serve Virginia Giuffre’s sex abuse lawsuit on him.

      But he is now likely to make a 500-mile dash to see his eldest daughter who is believed to be in a London hospital.

      A Balmoral insider said: “Prince Andrew obviously hasn’t wanted to leave Balmoral when lawyers are still trying to serve the lawsuit papers but his daughter comes first and he will want to be there for her.

      “He could end up staying on the estate and waiting for Beatrice to come to him once she’s given birth. But I’m sure he will want to go to her.”

      PHILIP ORDERED HARRY TO ‘COME BACK ALIVE’ FROM AFGHANISTAN

      PRINCE Harry reveals the Duke of Edinburgh ordered him to “come back alive” before he went off to war in Afghanistan.

      Harry, 37, opens up about his dry sense of humour in a touching television tribute to his grandfather, who died in April aged 99.

      Harry filmed his segment in California separately from the rest of the Royal Family.

      His brother William and dad Charles were among others remembering Prince Philip in clips revealed today ahead of Wednesday’s hour-long BBC special.

      LIES TO SMEAR NANNY

      It was claimed in the documents that Bashir told Diana her husband was “in love with” Ms Legge-Bourke, who cared for William and Harry between 1993 and 1999.

      Bashir denies spreading the smears.

      However, whatever the source, Diana became so convinced of a relationship between Charles and Ms Legge-Bourke that she confronted the young woman at a Christmas party.

      She is said to have approached the blameless nanny in 1995 and said: “So sorry about the baby.”

      She even wrote a letter two years before her death claiming that Prince Charles was plotting to kill her so he could marry Ms Legge-Bourke.

    • Joseph Gamp

      TIGGY’S DISTRESS

      In the note, Diana predicted she would die through “brake failure and serious head injury”.

      The princess is said to have been obsessed with the mistaken idea of an affair – a false allegation deeply upsetting to the younger nanny.

      Mark Stephens, a media lawyer with the law firm Howard Kennedy, said: “The BBC’s handling of Bashir was a catastrophe turned into a disaster and as a consequence, the corporation recognises the least said, the soonest mended.”

      Bashir denies faking documents connected to the nanny.

      He says notes made by Earl Spencer and attributed to him were in fact comments made by the princess.

      HARRY’S CLOSE TIES WITH JILL BIDEN

      Meghan’s close political ties include Jill Biden, who Harry first met at a reception for British and US wounded warriors in Washington, when Joe was serving as Barack Obama’s Vice President.

      Since then, Harry and Jill have met up on a number of occasions, with her even coming over to London to support the royal’s Invictus Games.

      The pair are understood to have bonded over their military ties – with Jill’s stepson Beau, a former army major, tragically passing away in 2015 from brain cancer.

      In 2014, Jill travelled to London for Harry’s inaugural Invictus Games, where they were pictured smiling together during several of the events.

      Joe Biden joked he was “a little worried” about how much time Harry and Jill were spending together, something the then-Vice President repeated in 2016 when his wife met the Prince at the Games in Orlando.

      “Jill went to London for the last Games. She spent too much damn time with Prince Harry,” he said.

      PRINCE WILLIAM PAYS HIDDEN SWEET TRIBUTE TO BELOVED GRANDAD PRINCE PHILIP & SON GEORGE

      PRINCE William has paid a sweet tribute to grandad Prince Philip and his son Prince George in his latest video for his Earthshot Prize.

      On the bookcase behind the Duke of Cambridge was an adorable photo of his eight-year-old son and his late grandfather, who passed away in April

      The photo shows future king George sitting by his great-grandfather in a carriage.

      And what is even more special about the snap is that it was taken in 2015 by keen amateur photographer Kate in Norfolk.

      We previously saw the photo when Kate and William shared it as part of their photos posted in tribute to Philip after he passed away at the age of 99.

      The photo, taken by Kate, showed George sitting in a carriage next to his great-grandfather.

      HIGH COURT RULES PRINCE PHILIP’S WILL TO REMAIN PRIVATE TO PROTECT ‘DIGNITY’ OF THE QUEEN

      THE Duke of Edinburgh’s will is to remain secret for 90 years to protect the Queen’s dignity.

      This follows a convention existing for more than a century that the last wishes of senior members of the Royal Family are sealed via a High Court application.

      Prince Philip’s will to remain secret for 90 years following his death back in April
      Sir Andrew McFarlane, president of the Family Division, had heard legal argument from lawyers for Prince Philip’s estate and the Attorney General, representing the public.

      He ordered the will is to remain sealed, saying: “There is a need to enhance the protection afforded to private lives of this group to maintain the dignity of the Sovereign and her family.

      “There may be public curiosity as to the private arrangements the Royal Family may choose to make but there is no true interest in knowing this.”

      MEGHAN MARKLE AND PRINCE HARRY’S TIME MAGAZINE COVER IS A ‘STAB IN THE HEART’ TO QUEEN’S REPUTATION

      MEGHAN Markle and Prince Harry’s Time Magazine cover is a “stab in the heart” of the Queen’s reputation, an expert has claimed.

      The Duke and Duchess of Sussex were this week named in the magazine’s list of top 100 most influential people in the world.

      Glossy pictures showed Harry standing behind his 40-year-old wife with his arms on her right shoulder.

      And Time’s picture editor Dilys Ng said the portrait captures the Sussexes’ “powerful dynamic as equal partners”.

      But Eric Schiffer, chairman of Reputation Management Consultants, told Newsweek: “Meghan and Harry landing a cover spot of Time Magazine’s 100 Most Influential People will be seen as a stab in the heart of the Monarchy’s reputation because of the greater implicit credibility it affords them and their previous claims against the crown.”

      GAME OF CAT AND MOUSE

      Andrew has appeared to play a game of cat and mouse with the legal team acting for Ms Giuffre, formerly Roberts — moving between his home in Windsor and Balmoral to keep out of their way.

      Her lawyers said they had delivered papers notifying him about her US civil court sex case to his 30-room mansion at Royal Lodge in Windsor Great Park.

      They claimed the documents were left with police guards at his Windsor home and emailed to his lawyers.

      But he disputes that they have been properly served.

      The High Court in London has given Andrew’s legal team seven days to challenge its decision to allow them to notify him about the case on the New York court’s behalf.

      PRINCE PHILIP’S WILL TO REMAIN SECRET TO PROTECT ‘DIGNITY’ OF QUEEN, HIGH COURT RULES

      Prince Philip’s will is set to remain a secret to protect the “dignity” of the Queen, the High Court has ordered. This is because of her constitutional role.

      The Duke of Edinburgh died aged 99 on April 9 this year, just two months before he would have turned 100.

      After the death of a senior member of the royal family, it has been convention that an application to seal their will is made to the President of the Family Division of the High Court.

      What this means is that the wills of senior members of the royal family are not open to public inspection in the way a will would ordinarily be.

      VIRGINIA ROBERTS RELEASES PHOTOS THAT PROVE SEX ASSAULT PAPERS WERE SENT TO PRINCE ANDREW AT HIS HOME ADDRESS

      Prince Andrew’s lawyers are continuing to thwart efforts to serve the lawsuit and spark a 21-day period for the duke to reply – but pictures show the papers were sent to the Duke at his home.

      Sent via a Royal Mail post box, the envelope which contained the papers was sent off to the duke, with the stamp of the Queen’s head on the top.

      These photos released as evidence in US court filings show the lawsuit was posted to Andrew on September 9 – one of five attempts to reach the accused royal.

      They show a worker from the London office of law firm Boies Schiller Flexner LLP posting the envelope containing the lawsuit into a traditional red Royal Mail post box.

      It was addressed to ‘Prince Andrew’ at his 100-acre 30-room mansion at Royal Lodge on the private Windsor Great Park, just three miles from Windsor Castle, on September 9.

      And even came with a first class stamp bearing the Queen’s profile.

      THE QUEEN ‘WON’T OVERRULE CHARLES’ PLAN TO KEEP ANDREW AWAY FROM PUBLIC DUTIES’, CLAIMS ROYAL BIOGRAPHER ANGELA LEVIN

      The Queen won’t “overrule” her eldest, who reportedly wishes to keep the Duke of York out of the public eye after damaging sex assault allegations.

      However, the monarch “adores” Andrew and “enjoys his company”, expert Angela Levin said today.

      Ms Levin, who has written an authorised biography on Prince Harry, called Andrew “naïve and arrogant” as the royal faces a legal wrangle in a US civil court.

      In an interview with Julia Hartley-Brewer on TalkRADIO, she said the Queen had ruled out Andrew’s return to duties.

      “She said he couldn’t be,” she said.

      “She adores Andrew and enjoys his company.

      “I think that she won’t overrule what Charles says. The rest of the royals won’t want him to do that.”

      MEGHAN MARKLE’S BROTHER WRITES HER ANOTHER EXPLOSIVE OPEN LETTER

      Meghan Markle’s brother has written another letter to her and Prince Harry, a trailer for Big Brother VIP has revealed.

      The second teaser, released today, shows Thomas Markle Jr. sitting in the diary room of the reality show announcing plans to write to his half-sister.

      “You know I’m famous for writing letters,” the 55-year-old Thomas says in the trailer sitting beside former Survivor contestant Luke Toki.

      “I’m gonna write a letter to Meghan,” he explains as he leans down onto a table in the diary room and puts pen to paper.

      “Dear Meghan and Harry,” he begins. “The first thing I want to say to both of you…”

      His voiceover then trails off and a question appears on the screen that reads: “What’s in the letter?”
