A furious Camilla slaps her stepson Prince William’s face as tensions over the future of the Monarchy reach boiling point. This is one of the shocking scenes from a controversial new BBC drama which portrays a Royal Family riven by ambition and bitter personal rivalry. Tory MP Andrew Bridgen last night condemned the BBC2 film, which is due to be screened on May 10. ‘It is unfortunate that the BBC would seek to promote this flight of fantasy, which many licence-fee payers will find distasteful and which I believe denigrates and undermines our Royal Family,’ he said. ‘I hope that the BBC will make clear that the production is pure fiction.’ King Charles III is based on a West End play of the same name and imagines Prince Charles’s accession to the throne. It charts the progre
Meghan Markle does not want Prince Harry to build her a full-size room for her shoes at Kensington Palace, despite a made-up report. Gossip Cop can exclusively correct this claim. We’re told it’s “false.” According to the National Enquirer, the “Suits” actress, a “shoe fanatic,” wants Prince Harry to build her an “enormous” closet for her footwear at Kensington Palace. A so-called “source” tells the tabloid, Markle is “emphasizing that it’s got to be bigger, better and infinitely more lavish than the one Prince William hammered together for bride Kate Middleton.” “It’ll probably end up looking like a bloody shoe store,” further purports the magazine’s supposed insider, but Prince Harry “thinks it’s a small price to pay for Meghan’s happiness.” Gossip Cop, however, recently bu
The Queen cancels an important annual engagement at Windsor Castle The Order of the Garter has been cancelled due to a schedule conflict. Queen Elizabeth II will not be carrying out the annual service for the Order of the Garter this year, owing to a schedule conflict. It’s the first time the important event, which takes place at Windsor Castle every June, has been cancelled since 1984. The engagement typically sees Her Majesty lead plumed knights, including her grandson Prince William. A statement from Buckingham Palace explained that the Queen will instead attend the State Opening of Parliament to show her "support of the parliamentary and constitutional process.” “As a result, the annual service for the Order of the Garter, which had been due to take place on 19th June,

The fashion designer has received her OBE. It was a posh day at the palace for former Spice Girl Victoria Beckham. The pop singer-turned-fashion designer was made an Officer of the Order of the British Empire on Wednesday. Prince William presented the award at Buckingham Palace.

She recently released her Target collaboration, which reportedly sold out within hours. "I really wanted to celebrate femininity and ...
While Prince Harry is enjoying Easter weekend with girlfriend Meghan Markle in Toronto, how is his grandmother, Queen Elizabeth, planning to spend the holiday? For the Queen, Easter is a serious, religious holiday, as she is the head of the Church of England. The majority of her day is spent privately with family, but royal watchers do get a glimpse of the monarch each year on her way to church. On Easter Sunday, the Queen and the rest of the royal family typically spend the day at Windsor Castle. They’ll attend Easter services at St. George’s Chapel in Windsor, where crowds will gather to see the family following church. A group of local children typically present bouquets of flowers to the Queen after services, too. The Queen’s other big Easter-related public engagement come
Kensington Palace Opens Gorgeous Garden in Memory of Princess Diana Princess Diana‘s legacy lives on at Kensington Palace. On Thursday, a temporary garden opened at the late royal’s former London home. Named the “White Garden,” the floral display is set in Kensington Palace’s sunken garden, which is just next to the palace’s visitor entrance. The White Garden will be in place from Easter weekend to September of this year. Kensington Palace’s head gardener, Sean Harkin, conceived and designed the White Garden, which features white tulips, daffodils and scented hyacinths — 12,000 bulbs were planted last fall to create the display. Harkin’s inspiration came from a desire to do something at Kensington Palace to honor Diana in the 20th anniversary year of her death. “My team
