Harry's 'ludicrous' parenting of Lilibet and Archie criticised by royal expert
Prince Harry’s comments about the safety of the internet have been criticised by a royal expert, who observed that Archie and Lilibet won’t old enough to access social media for some time.The prince recently attended a webinar hosted by youth charity 5Rights Foundation, where he reiterated his stance on the dangers of online harm for young people.The Duke of Sussex expressed a concern that his “two little ones” will “never have to experience the internet as it exists now” and called for a safer digital environment.However, speaking to Talk TV, royal expert Angela Levin picked apart the Duke’s comments and suggested that the young age of Archie and Lilibet meant this was a largely hypothetical scenario.“If one is three and the other is nearly one, they’re not going to be on the internet for some time yet,” she suggested.“And by the time they become teenagers, I don’t think the online stuff is going to be anywhere like what it is [now], and they won’t want to do it because it will be stale and old.“So it’s a ludicrous thing to start preparing a child at the age of nearly one, they’re just not ready for it.”Angela also criticised Harry’s suggestion that it is the job of people making money on the internet to “keep us scrolling".“He’s making an awful lot of money out of Spotify and Netflix and not doing very much for it, so I think it’s pot calling the kettle black,” she observed.Meghan Markle was recently dealt a setback when her original animated series Pearl was scrapped amid huge cuts made by the streaming giant.
Frogmore Cottage's staggering cost as Meghan and Harry plan to stay for Queen's Jubilee
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle recently made a surprise trip to the UK ahead of the Invictus Games. It won’t be long until they return again, as the couple are set to come back with their two children, Archie and Lilibet.They're rumoured to be staying in Windsor's royal residence Frogmore Cottage, where Princess Eugenie and husband Jack Brooksbank currently live with their toddler daughter August Philip.It’s a special place for the royals, as Frogmore was their first family home together when Archie was born.They will be back for the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee, helping mark this historic celebration in British history.It also has a long history and more recent controversy, especially when the two used millions of pounds in taxpayer money to refurbish the place.Here is everything you need to know about Frogmore Cottage.Despite Harry and Meghan calling Frogmore Cottage home, it is technically owned by the Crown Estate.This means that ownership is passed from monarch to monarch and isn’t solely owned by one person.This complicated matters when Harry and Meghan wanted to refurb the old home, as the Crown Estate is directly funded by taxpayer money.The pair faced massive criticism over the refurbishment, which cost a staggering £2.7million.However, the couple defended their eye-watering bill, saying it was mainly work that already needed doing.
Harry and Meghan 'told Queen they never wanted to be on palace balcony', claims pal
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle told the Queen that they never wanted to be on the balcony at Buckingham Palace for her Platinum Jubilee, according to sources.It comes after the palace confirmed only working members of the Royal Family could appear on the balcony on June 2 - leaving Harry and Meghan out in the cold.The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are returning to the UK next month with their children for the four-day celebration to mark the monarch’s 70-year reign.Courtiers and aides are continuing to finalise which events they will attend.Despite claiming that they ‘never wanted to appear on the balcony’, a royal insider claims the pair did insist on attending the Queen’s Thanksgiving Service, as reported by The Sun.Biographer and pal Omid Scobie, author of Finding Freedom, denied they were “cut” from the balcony line-up and Trooping the Colour, which marks the monarch’s birthday.Writing for Yahoo news, Mr Scobie said Harry had “spoken with his grandmother about the possibility of not attending Trooping the Colour long before last week’s announcements”.The Sussexes thought it “inappropriate” to appear at the “balcony moment” as they were no longer working royals, he added.It comes as royal experts claimed that the couple is attending the celebrations because they "need to be seen as royal" and the decision to come back is "entirely due to branding".The Duke and Duchess of Sussex announced last week that they would travel from California, US to attend Jubilee events in the first week of June.Since they sensationally stepped down as working royals in 2020, they have only returned to the UK together once, meeting with the Queen at Windsor in April ahead of the Invictus Games.Keep up to date with all the latest news stories.
