What is and what is not in memories of prince harryand if and when the book will be published, it remains the number one real mystery.

What is known so far: there is a memoryIt’s apparently been finished, and previous reports indicate that Harry wants to rewrite parts of it and possibly delay publication, in light of Queen Elizabeth’s death.

But in the Palace, anguish reigns over the “damaging revelations” that the book may contain, for king charles‘ paternity or other matters is unknown.

a friend of the king said to mail on sunday: “The question inside the Palace is: ‘Can the book be stopped?’ Even Harry might not be able to stop it at this stage, but the feeling at the top is that there is nothing good that can come from airing grievances in public.”

“The royal family’s solicitors at the firm Harbottle and Lewis are expected to be ready to read the book when it comes out,” the newspaper adds.

Also unknown is what Harry’s three-title deal with publisher Penguin Random House does or does not allow him to do editorially when it comes to demanding and executing changes.

Meet the new “Fab Four”

No, this is not another Blues Brothers tribute act. The image shows Queen Camilla, King Charles, Prince William and Kate Middleton the night before Queen Elizabeth’s funeral, just before she is to receive the leaders of many nations at Buckingham Palace.

Sunday’s mail Christian the grouping of the new “Fab Four,” a reference to the royal nickname given to William, Kate, Harry and Meghan Markle when the four got along and held giggly press conferences about the work they did together.

Buckingham Palace released the image, which is also the first official image of King Charles III with his queen consort, Camilla, on Saturday night. Behind them is a portrait of King George III, the longest reigning king in British history. His imminent presence means that the image contains three Princes of Wales.

A palace source told the Mail the image was intended to record the “historic moment” privately for the family.

But then the image was released to the rest of the world. So obviously, whatever was originally intended by him, making himself publicly visible surely underscores who King Charles considers to be the core of the family from now on.

Note who is not in the picture, that is, everyone else. The event at the palace may have been for “royal workers” only, but there’s a certain ruthless signal in making public this supposedly private picture of how Charles sees his “reduced” monarchy in the future, and who’s in and who’s out. outside.

King Charles: In Search of Purpose

When British Prime Minister Liz Truss outright ban King Charles from attendingand speaking at the Cop27 climate change summit in Egypt, he highlighted the biggest new tension in Charles’ life: can he really be the monarch who says nothing about the things he cares about so passionately?

“The decision is likely to fuel tensions between the new prime minister and the new monarch, although a Downing Street source said the hearing had been cordial and ‘there was no fight’.” the sunday time reports.

It is no mystery that the King was invited to go there. He had to think very carefully about what steps to take for his first overseas tour, and he won’t be attending Cop.

A senior royal source told the newspaper: “It is no mystery that the King was invited to go there. He had to think very carefully about what steps to take for his first tour abroad and he will not be attending Cop.” The decision was made “entirely in the spirit of always being aware as King that he acts on the advice of the government.”

Where exactly does that leave Charles? While it is known that the queen never publicly expressed her views, her son has spent his life, until becoming king, feeling free to do just that. In his first address to the people as king after his mother’s death, Charles said, “Of course, my life will change as I take on my new responsibilities. It will no longer be possible for me to devote so much of my time and energy to the charities and issues that matter so much to me…”

a palace fountain said to mail on sunday: “Her Majesty will build on the points she has made to the nation: Now that the period of mourning is over, she will support diversity, promote community spirit and protect space for those who have faith and those who do not. She is aware that, as King, his interests and passions will continue, but that…some of his previous commitments will now continue in the trusted hands of others.”

And, also, concerns and conversations about how dark his skin will be when she is born.”

Security Staff So “Terrified” Of Andrew That They Let An Intruder In

Windsor security personnel were so frightened by Prince Andrew’s temper that they allegedly allowed a woman claiming to be his fiancée onto the Royal Lodge grounds without consulting him. according to the Mirror.

The event occurred last November; the woman had claimed that she had a dinner date with Andrew and she was allowed onto the grounds despite not having identification. She walked for 40 minutes and even entered the Royal Lodge before “suspicions arose” and she was arrested on suspicion of theft and later sectioned under the Mental Health Act.

Protection expert Philip Grindell told the Mirror that Andrew is a “pain in the a**ey if you’ve ever worked with him, he’s a nasty character.”

“Security was terrified to ask ‘Is anyone showing up?'” Grindell told the newspaper. “And since they didn’t want to bother him, no one asked and they assumed he must have a date and let her in. Security was terrified to ask him.”

Questions without answer

Does Liz Truss order King Carlos not to attend Cop27, and Carlos agrees to it, does it mean that Carlos absolutely sticks to his previous word that as king he will keep silent about all the causes he once cherished? Or will the occasion demand that at some point he say what he thinks?
