Meghan and Harry latest – Duchess' multi-million dollar brand will DESTROY Kate and William's A-list appeal, expert says

MEGHAN Markle's multi-million brand will destroy Prince William and Kate Middleton's own A-list appeal, an expert has warned.

Since relocating to California with Prince Harry and son Archie citing privacy concerns, Meghan has signed massive multi-million content deals with the likes of Netflix and Spotify.

But Meghan and Harry's own star power is threatening to eclipse the A-list appeal of Prince William and Kate Middleton who must remain popular and glamourous for the long-term future of the monarchy.

Speaking on True Royalty TV's The Royal Beat, Royal biographer Duncan Larcombe "What Harry and Meghan have done over the past 12 months is sow seeds which will spell potential catastrophe to the Royal Family.

He added that while Prince Harry could get 50 million people to watch his celeb endorsements, our future king Prince William would only draw small crowds to his unglamorous tasks like opening supermarkets.

    MEG BATTLE

    Meghan Markle's texts to a royal aide that could reveal the truth about her "painful" letter to her dad have been deleted, her lawyer admitted today.

    The Duchess of Sussex, 39, is suing the Mail on Sunday for privacy copyright and data protection over five articles published in February 2019.

    The High Court heard today how the 'Palace Four', who used to work for Meghan, may be asked to give evidence if the trial goes ahead.

    This would include whether they helped with the draft of Meghan’s letter to her estranged dad Thomas Markle, which is at the centre of the case.

    Among them is Jason Knauf, who at the time was communications secretary to both the Duke and Duchess of Sussex and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.

    ROYAL RUMBLE

    The Cabins star Stuart stormed off tonight after Meghan Markle impersonator Ashleigh shut down their romance.

    He later told the cameras Ashleigh was a "head f**K" because she'd kissed him on their final day in the luxury apartments.

    The 23-year-old farmer's daughter had said the night before that she wasn't convinced they had a future together, but she wanted to spend one more day on the show with him to be sure.

    Viewers had high hopes for the pair after seeing their chemistry building over the course of three days, with land buyer Stuart believing he had won her over.

    But as they sat down for their final chat on the sofa Ashleigh announced her decision, saying: "I’m so glad we stayed in The Cabins.

    "I think I would prefer to be friends for life."

    Justin Rushbrooke QC said the issue was a "matter of concern" as the Duke and Duchess were ready to "go into bat" with a legal complaint to stop the pictures being run if he hadn't staged them.

    He added: "He was told if they try to do that and it fails because it is true that risks the privacy of any children of theirs thereafter.

    "In other words you only get one shot of this. We can't make a legal complaint if factually misconceived."

    Lawyers for the Duchess earlier told the High Court the publication of the "intrinsically private, personal and sensitive" letter was a "triple-barrelled invasion of her privacy rights".

    Justin Rushbrooke QC described the 1,250-word letter as "a heartfelt plea from an anguished daughter to her father".

    This includes extracts from a handwritten letter she sent to her dad Thomas Markle, 76, in August 2018.

    Lawyers for the Duchess today revealed Meghan and Prince Harry asked if he was staging photos, to which he told them he wasn't.

    Thomas Markle was then told he could risk the privacy of any children they may end up having if he were found to be lying. The couple's son Archie was not born at this time.

    RECAP – MEGA BATTLE

    Meghan Markle's dad claims her "heartfelt" letter actually "shut" him out and ended their relationship.

    The Duchess of Sussex, 39, is said to have felt forced to write a "painful" letter to her dad after they reached "breaking point".

    She is suing the Mail on Sunday for privacy copyright and data protection over five articles published in February 2019.

    This includes extracts from the handwritten letter she sent to her dad Thomas Markle, 76, in August 2018.

    Her lawyer Justin Rushbrooke QC today described the 1,250-word letter as "a heartfelt plea from an anguished daughter to her father".

    As a result, Thomas, 76, passed the letter to the Mail on Sunday.

    He says: “It seemed to me that the article had either been expressly authorised by Meg or she had at the very least known about and approved of its publication.

    "I believed (and still believe) that Meghan wanted her account of the letter to be published.”

    Meghan, 39, is now suing in the High Court for breaches of privacy, data protection and copyright after extracts were published in 2019.

    Her lawyer Justin Rushbrooke, QC, today described the 1,250-word letter as “a heartfelt plea from an anguished daughter to her father”.

    But in his statement released by the High Court, Thomas, of Rosario, California, states: “The letter was not an attempt at reconciliation. It was a criticism of me.”

    MEG-BELIEVE

    Heartbroken Thomas Markle says daughter Meghan spurned him in a controversial letter which “signalled the end of our relationship”.

    She is said to have written the “painful” note, at the centre of a High Court battle, to her dad after they reached “breaking point”.

    But in a witness statement, Thomas, 76, says: “The letter didn’t say she loved me. It showed no concern about the fact I had suffered a heart attack.”

    Meghan, 39, is suing over the publication of letter extracts.

    The interview with five of the Duchess of Sussex’s “best friends” said “heartbroken” Meghan had written “I love you” and begged for him to stop “victimising” her in the Press.

    But her furious father states: “When I read the article ‘The Truth About Meghan’ in People magazine I was shocked by what it said about me. It was a total lie.

    “It misrepresented the tone and content of the letter Meg had written me in August 2018. I quickly decided I wanted to correct that misrepresentation.”
