The Queen apparently shut down Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s plan to be ‘entirely independent’

Wait, what?

A lot has changed in the royal family over the past year, with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle undoubtedly going through the biggest transition of everyone.

The royal couple married in May last year, gained the title of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, and now with a royal baby on the way they have relocated, splitting from their shared household in Kensington Palace with the Cambridges and moving to Windsor to create their own set-up in Frogmore Cottage.

So began the rumours of a feud between Meghan and Kate and the fears that this could be the end of the Fab Four, something that insiders were quick to point out had been blown way out of proportion.

The news that emerged this week has only confirmed that the decision has nothing to do with the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, and more to do with the Sussex family’s desire to be ‘entirely independent’ in general.

Yes, really. According to Roya Nikkhah, royal correspondent at The Sunday Times, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle wanted to be ‘entirely independent’ from Buckingham Palace – something that was reportedly vetoed by the Queen.

‘They wanted their household to be entirely independent of Buckingham Palace, but were told “no”,’ a royal source told Roya. ‘There is an institutional structure that doesn’t allow that kind of independence. The feeling is that it’s good to have the Sussexes under the jurisdiction of Buckingham Palace, so they can’t just go off and do their own thing.’

Despite reportedly wanting ‘total royal freedom’, Harry and Meghan’s official office will remain at Buckingham Palace while Frogmore Cottage will be their home.

To be honest with their past busy year and their little bump set to arrive next month, they’ve got enough to deal with!

Meghan Markle’s Stylist Wants to Gut Your Wardrobe. Resist!

Photo Illustration by The Daily Beast

Reporting live from underneath a pile of feathered skirts, it’s me, a woman who owns far too many clothes. Please don’t tell Jessica Mulroney.

The Canadian stylist, who is known for her close working relationship and friendship with Meghan Markle, landed a fashion correspondent gig on Good Morning America this week. For her first segment, Mulroney broke down the concept of a “Capsule Collection” and why every woman should have one.

Mulroney, who dressed the duchess in a $ 1,495 Brandon Maxwell sheath and $ 2,454 Givenchy pantsuit, has one simple sartorial wish for all us non-royals. “A capsule collection is finding those six pieces you can mix and match, do day to night,” Mulroney said in her seven-minute segment. “[Clothes that] you actually wear; they don’t just hang in your closet.”

Why Meghan Markle’s bump appears to be bigger in the evening

Oh…

All eyes are currently on Prince Harry and Meghan Markle as they prepare to welcome their first child together in the Spring.

The couple announced that they are expecting via Kensington Palace’s Twitter account earlier this month, and have since gone on to discuss their happy news – from Meghan’s pregnancy symptoms to the gender that Prince Harry is hoping for.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex touched down in Tonga today as part of their 16-day royal tour, having visited Australia and Fiji over the last couple of weeks.

But during their time in Fiji, many noticed that Meghan’s baby bump suddenly appeared noticeably bigger.

At a reception dinner hosted by the President of Fiji, Meghan wore a gorgeous blue Safiyaa Ginkgo cape dress and was photographed cradling her bump.

It left those on Twitter questioning whether the more visible bump was the result of her choice of clothing – but experts have revealed that there is something more to it.

Doula Susannah Birch explained to Trimester Talk that this could be down to tired abdominal muscles.

She said: ‘At night time, your abdominal muscles are tired from holding your bump [and they] loosen as they grow more tired, which allows your bump to sit out further and appear larger.’

A second expert has also offered their opinion. Obstetrician and gynaecologist Dr Joseph Sgroi told Mamamia: ‘A lot of women will say that towards the end of the night they do feel a lot more bloated, and that bloating sensation is a combination of them obviously having eaten over the course of the day.

‘One of the things progesterone does, which is the primary hormone that’s secreted from the placenta, is it actually slows down gut motility, so it slows down the transit time from when you eat something to when it comes out the other end.’

So now you know.

Sexy, Classic, Surprising: Inside Meghan Markle’s Royal Wardrobe

Arthur Edwards/Getty

It took Meghan Markle only two seconds to close her own car door on Wednesday. But the moment of relatability left many Markle stans clutching their imitation Aquazzura pumps in celebration. Deal or No Deal-briefcase-girl-turned-royalty… they’re just like us! Except for, you know, the million-dollar wardrobe.

Before closing her own door, Markle had exited the her car in a long-sleeved, black Givenchy number that would come off a bit too Wednesday Addams save for a strategically placed skirt slit. For her first solo outing as a royal, Markle oozed the breezy confidence she’s known for.

Even before joining the royal family, Markle projected self-assuredness. She ran a site called The Tig, where she blogged about independence and living alone. In 2015, she penned an essay for Darling detailing how she found self-confidence as a young actress when a casting director told you, “You need to know that you’re enough.”
