PLUS: That Time Joe Biden Joked About His Wife Jill and Prince Harry |
The Daily Beast – Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s unparalleled gamble of releasing a detailed blueprint on how they see their future as autonomous royals without getting prior approval from the Queen appears to be on the point of paying off.
A deal is being rushed through ahead of fresh concerns for Harry’s mental health, with Prince Charles said to be concerned Harry is at a “tipping point.”
Family members have been increasingly worried for Harry’s mental health since he said, during an interview with ITV’s Tom Bradby, that the flashes of photographers triggered PTSD-like flashbacks to his mother’s death, and told how mental health demons he thought he had beaten had come back to haunt him.
“Charles is absolutely clear in his mind that Harry is at a tipping point and has promised him he would do everything in his power to help him,” a source told the Mirror.
“Charles told him he would stand by him no matter what, but urged him to come up with a sensible plan that could be worked through in order to satisfy everyone.”
A source also told the Mirror, “Harry’s feeling was if they didn’t move then it would be months before they were ‘given permission.’ He has said he felt they had no option but in truth he believed it would force the family’s hand into them getting their own way … ”
Meghan is now among the most unpopular members of the royal family according to a fresh poll for the Daily Mail, with an approval rating of -2, making only Camilla, Andrew and Fergie more hated.
Harry, who not long ago was the nation’s most loved prince, has seen his rating slump by 20 points to fifth. Read more.

The Guardian – Surrounded by secret service agents and Catholic activists from Iowa, Joe Biden was about to walk away.
We had just been conducting a short interview as he shook hands along the rope line at a event with Nuns on the Bus, a group that travel the country in an effort to increase voter turnout.
“By the way, I’ve been reading the English press the last four or five days,” he said. Presuming he was about to deliver a news-making quote about Thursday’s Scottish referendum, I replied: “It is a big moment, isn’t it?”
“No, not just the vote tomorrow,” he said. “But my wife was with Prince Harry at the Invictus Games. And I read in the Guardian, or one of them, and it says – I’m paraphrasing – everywhere Prince Harry went, he had this blonde woman on his arm. The vice-president’s wife! I’m a little worried here, you know what I mean?”
Biden could not seem to resist a dig at Harry’s reputation as something of a womaniser.
In response, reassurance seemed the best tactic. “I don’t think you need to be too worried,” I said. Source.
