Britain’s Prince Philip Gets Breathalyzer Test After Car Crash

(London, England) – Britain’s Prince Philip is said to be just fine after escaping injury in a car crash and passing a breathalyzer test with flying colors.

Police say the 97-year-old Duke of Edinburgh was behind the wheel when his SUV collided with another vehicle Thursday and flipped on its side near the Royal family’s Sandringham estate.

A Father’s Love: As Meghan Markle Continues To Strut Around As A Royal, Thomas Markle Fights To Get Her Back In His Life

(London, UK) – A few weeks ago, Meghan Markle’s father Thomas detailed what appeared to be the end of his relationship with his youngest daughter.

The 74-year old, who reportedly took care of  the actress turned Duchess from the time she was 11 until she left for college, spoke candidly about that day in which Prince Harry called him while he was still in the hospital recovering from a ‘widow maker’ heart attack.

According to Thomas, Prince Harry was lecturing him and saying had he did what he was told ‘this’ wouldn’t be happening.  Thomas, understandably so, wasn’t in the mood for the criticism and hung up on Harry.  He says he hasn’t heard from Meghan since.

With the circus that came with her sister and brother, most people were looking for something deeper to give the new member of the British Royal Family a legitimate reason for cutting her father, who she seemed to be extremely close to, off. But there doesn’t seem to be.

The idea that Meghan and Thomas weren’t ever really that close was dispelled when he released notes and cards that he received from Meghan over the past years where she thanks him for making her who she is, for taking such a good care of her and guiding her in her career.  She even notes that she just wants to make him proud. It’s a far cry from this family that Prince Harry believes she never had. Listening to Thomas, it appears that Harry and Meghan believed the tabloid stories about him faking a heart attack to get out of walking her down the isle for her wedding.  Markle has since released medical records proving it was no stunt.

Meghan nor Harry, whom he still hasn’t met, have talked to Thomas since they got married. And even worse…won’t respond to letters, text messages or cards.  He’s been ghosted as Markle put it to Good Morning Britain and he’s not sure why.  “I would appreciate a card or a phone call, or just some sign that she knows I’m here,” he said. “She knows I love her.”

It’s baffling to say the least, but a real person, a genuine person would take the time out to settle the problem with his or her parent. Thomas Markle has never spoken ill of Meghan and when others try he rushes to her defense.  Granted he can’t explain why Meghan is the way that she is now, (in reference to reports of her not getting along with other royals and staff) but he says she’s usually very polite. One thing is for sure, if Prince Harry can have a relationship with his father after he kept Camilla as a mistress throughout his entire marriage to Princess Diana, he can certainly urge Meghan to forgive her father for hanging up on him which seems to be the true point of contention.

And for those who say if he’d stop talking maybe she would reach out, since when is it detrimental to one’s livelihood for his or her father to publicly request some form of communication? It’s not.

That Was Quick: Meghan Markle And Prince Harry Expecting First Child 5 Months After Wedding

(London, England) – The suspicions of Royal family watchers haven proven to be correct after Prince Harry and Meghan Markle revealed that they were in fact expecting their first child.

The Duchess of Sussex has been wearing coats and dresses with distracting fabric around the mid-section to throw fans off.  But anybody who has been watching these two knew that she was in fact pregnant.  Meghan is rather slim and any type of bump in that area would raise an eyebrow or two.

The couple, who just got married 5 months ago at Windsor Castle told the Royal Family at Princess Eugenia’s wedding.  Thank God, they kept it under wraps until after her nuptials. For news of this magnitude would have upstaged her happy day for sure. Harry and Marry are currently in Australia for their first overseas tour together. Plans to visit New Zealand, Fiji and Tonga are also on the itinerary.

Bless her heart. Meghan seemed a little nervous as she took everything in. I’m sure her curtsy will smooth out a little as she continues to get used to royal behavior :). Harry looked pleased to have his future wife by his side as William and Kate looked to be giving her pointers along the way. Kate is pregnant with the 5th in line to the throne. Harry and Meghan will tie the knot in May.
