Meghan Markle latest LIVE – Prince Harry and pregnant Duchess FINISHED as royals after Oprah interview bombshell

THERE'S 'no way back' for Meghan Markle and Prince Harry in royal life after agreeing to an Oprah Winfrey interview, insiders claim.

In a shameless move, the couple who'd claimed they were fleeing the UK and royal duties to maintain their "privacy" have signed up for an explosive tell-all interview with America's biggest celebrity interviewer.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex will appear on a bombshell 90-minute special lifting the lid on Megxit, which will air on US TV next month.

The hypocrisy of the move is said to be too much for the Palace to bear and the couple will now be stripped of all remaining royal patronages – including Harry's three beloved military titles.

Harry may also lose his patronages of Rugby Football Union, Rugby Football League and the London Marathon too.

Another insider said there is "a great deal of nervousness" at the Palace about the interview, with the Royal Family understood not to have been given advance notice of the pair agreeing to the interview.

The royal source told the Mirror: "One only has to look at the previous instalments of the tell-all interview to know these things never end up with a wholly positive experience for any party.

Buckingham Palace would not comment on the couple's Oprah interview.

    Giggs followed up by tweeting a picture of Woogie, before tagging Piers in a tweet saying, "Woogie Morgs , Dats your new name."

    It seems Piers didn't have time for the Peckham-born musician, after Giggs revealed he had been blocked.

    He shared a screenshot of Piers account alongside the message: "My guy, I was just tryin a help you get some p****!

    "You was lookin bad out there ,i’d want you to tell me."

    GIGGS DEFENDS MEG AND TELLS PIERS TO TAKE "WOOGIE" BEHAVIOUR DOWN A GEAR

    Rapper Giggs hit out at Piers Morgan after the Good Morning Britain host tweeted another tirade of insults regarding the announcement of Harry and Meghan's second child.

    Giggs told Piers to cease his obsession with the Duchess, implying his desperation is similar to the character of Woogie in 'Something about Mary'.

    Woogie is the obsessive ex-boyfriend of Mary, who embarks on a stalking mission intent on winning her back at any cost.

    "Piers ,bro,please. Let it go man, she wasn’t interested in you man. Plenty more fish in the sea is a real thing, the quicker you try to move on and heal the better for your confidence," Giggs wrote.

    "Right now you looking like Woogie in 'something about Mary'."

      PIERS MORGAN MOCKS PREGNANCY SNAP

      Piers Morgan slammed Meghan and Harry's birth announcement in a sarcastic tweet and ridiculed the couple's sweet picture that shows off the Duchesses bump.

      He echoed the Daily Star's headline regarding the birth of Meghan and Harry's second child on Twitter, writing: "BREAKING: Harry & Meghan have announced they’re pregnant and released this cheesy photo of themselves to ensure the media gives the story about their private life more prominence – in their latest courageous effort to stop the same media focusing on their private life."

      The callous comment from the Good Morning Britain host is the latest in his line of critique of the couple.

       MEG & HARRY 'SET TO LOSE ROYAL PATRONAGES'

      The Duke and Duchess of Sussex could now lose their royal patronages after agreeing to do an interview with Oprah Winfrey.

      It is believed the Queen will ask them give up their links with organisations passed down through the Royal Family, reports the Daily Mail.

      If asked by the Queen to relinquish such links, it would see Harry, 36, stripped of his three remaining honorary military titles.

      It could potentially even mean he would have to give up his patronages with the Rugby Football Union, Rugby Football League, and the London Marathon.

      MEG ADMIRERS DEFEND HER ON MUMSNET

      Dedicated fans of the Duchess of Sussex defended her from harsh headlines branding her pregnancy announcement attention seeking.

      After the anarchic Daily Star headline, “Publicity-shy woman tells 7.67bn people: I’m pregnant,” Meghan’s admirers backed her on Mumsnet.

      One user wrote, “I don’t think they want to keep everything a secret, just that they want to share what they want to share and keep some things private.”

      “Harry wants privacy too, and it’s his announcement too—why pick on Megan? Why pick on her full stop, but particularly when it’s such a mutual creation like a new child,” Another user added.

      “Also they can’t win either way, if she just birthed a child in secret the press would attack her as well when it came out—what are they meant to do exactly? Disgusting.”

      He estimates his business has an expected revenue of $200 million a year.

      HARRY'S BUNION BOMBSHELL

      A health expert has spotted a mild deformity on Prince Harry in the candid bare-foot snaps released announcing he and Meghan are expecting their second child.

      After assessing the image, Chiropodist Dina Gohil believes his toes appear to be in a "slightly peculiar in shape" due to a potential "mild bunion deformity," that he could have acquired after his "high impact" military training.

      "His feet seem to appear healthy and there is a good arch profile visible. However potentially he may have mild bunion deformity, whereby there is a medial deviation of the joint attached to the big toe, making the bony appearance prominent.

      "In his case, a likely cause of this condition is the high impact training and action he underwent while in the Armed Forces," she deduced.

      Prince Harry and Meghan have been warned there is "no way back to official duties" after confirming their TV interview with talk show titan, Oprah Winfrey.

      Meghan has agreed to conduct an "intimate" and "wide-ranging" interview with the American host, that is set to ruffle royal feathers further.

      One royal source told the Daily Mail it was, "one of the most inevitable and, sadly, predictable consequences” of the Megxit saga.

      But they added that as former working members of the Royal family, "media commitments are matters for them," rather than the Palace.

      And the Cedars-Sinai Medical Centre in Los Angeles can offer a similar level of comfort, expertise and exclusivity.

      MEGHAN AND HARRY'S NOD TO NOTTING HILL

      Fans of Notting Hill will recall how the reclining shot shown by Meghan and Harry echoes the pose done by Julia Roberts and Hugh Grant in the hit film.

      And this is particularly poignant given the movie plot features a famous Hollywood star meeting charming UK gent – sound familiar?

      The Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s romance certainly is a modern-day real fairytale.

      MEGHAN'S FIRST WEDDING DRESS

      When Meghan Markle married Prince Harry in a fairytale Windsor wedding back in April 2018, the Duchess turned to French fashion house Givenchy to design her gown.

      But for her first marriage to producer Trevor Engelson, Meghan's special dress was a lot more low-key.

      For her 2011 wedding, the former Suits actress opted for a satin white sleeveless gown with a silver bejewelled belt.

      An insider called Meghan’s first wedding in Jamaica in 2011 a “boozy beach wedding with a magical backdrop” and “an epic weekend under the sun and stars”.

      When Meghan and Harry were expecting their first baby Archie, the couple kept the pregnancy as private as possible.

      Now that the Duke and Duchess are no longer senior working royals, expert Emily Andrews believed they wouldn't announce they were expecting a second baby at all.

      She tweeted: "I’m surprised Harry and Meghan have announced they’re having a second child.

      "They were so angry & resentful they had to announce their first pregnancy, they could have taken this opportunity to have an entirely private pregnancy and birth, only announcing their baby once born."

      PRINCE HARRY IS DEVELOPING AMERICAN ACCENT LIKE MEGHAN'S, EXPERT CLAIMS

      Jennifer Dorman, expert sociolinguist at language learning app Babbel, analysed Archewell Audio's first podcast and claimed Harry is starting to mimic his wife's voice.

      She told Cosmopolitan: "The expression ‘You guys’ comes up, an American phrase that Harry used to address listeners in both the podcast teaser and during the podcast.

      "In the premiere episode, he even uses the typically American term ‘awesome’ – something which elicits a giggle from his American wife when used.

      "Harry says things like ‘love always wins’ and ‘the power within us’: two very positive, uplifting phrases which many of us would associate with the optimistic attitude of our cousins over the pond."

      Although Jennifer suggests Harry could be using these phrases to "be understood better by the American press", she also claims his language has been influenced by how much time he is spending with his wife.

      ROYAL FANS ACCUSE MEGHAN OF 'STEALING EUGENIE'S THUNDER AGAIN' WITH BABY ANNOUNCEMENT

      Meghan Markle has been accused of "stealing Princess Eugenie's thunder AGAIN" by royal fans after the Duchess announced she was pregnant with her second child – just days after Eugenie welcomed her first baby.

      Harry and Meghan reportedly announced they were expecting their first baby at Eugenie's wedding in October 2018 – which allegedly left the newlyweds "furious", the Mail reports.

      And now diehard royal fans believe history is repeating itself again.

      "So happy for the couple," one tweeted. |But again, she couldn't give Eugenie a week before stealing her thunder. First their wedding and now this."

      Another added: "They had to announce it when Eugenie just gave birth. It looks like something against her. They did the same at their wedding."

      A third wrote: "Megs, I know it probably wasn't intentional, but strong women don't overshadow each other."
