The Royal Family has been busy fighting off illness, rumours and lawsuits. But now that Prince Andrew’s sexual abuse lawsuit is settled, will things cool down between Meghan Markle and Camilla or only get worse – now that the truth comes out.
Here is the latest on the Royals:
Charles and Camilla tests positive for Covid-19
Last week it was confirmed that Prince Charles tested positive for the Coronavirus for the second time. And on Monday Camilla Parker Bowles, his wife also tested positive.
“Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cornwall has tested positive for Covid-19 and is self-isolating,” Clarence House said in a statement. “We continue to follow government guidelines.”
Clarence House has not given any update on Prince Charles’ condition and did not give any further details on Camilla.
It is confirmed that both members of the Royal Family have been fully vaccinated against Covid-19.
Camilla gets caught calling Meghan Markle “ungrateful” and “that minx”
Seems like the tension between Prince Harry’s wife, Meghan Markle, and the rest of the Royals are still as heavy as ever.
According to a royal biographer, Tom Bower, Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall labelled The Duchess of Sussex “that minx” and even called her “ungrateful”.
This may not come as a surprise for many as the two Duchesses reportedly never got on. Bower also added that Camilla was “tight-lipped” when Prince Harry first brought Meghan into the Royal Family.
“From the outset, Camilla was suspicious about the adventuress from Los Angeles.
Bower went on: “She found it hard to believe that Meghan would sacrifice her career and independence to serve silently as a team player devoted to the monarchy.
“But, as in all her conduct, Camilla remained tight-lipped. While watching Charles painfully believe that Harry was intent on publicly humiliating him, Camilla undoubtedly provided the comfort and good advice to reassure her husband that he had done the best he could.
“She could comfort him that while his authority is challenged by the Sussex’s, he would emerge victorious.
“During those inevitably endless, tortured and inconclusive conversations, Camilla is the sort who would refer to Meghan as ‘that minx’ — the self-seeking trouble-maker whose antics will always end in tears.”
Prince Andrew reaches a settlement in sexual abuse lawsuit
Virginia Giuffre accused Prince Andrew of sexually abusing her when she was a minor. And on Tuesday, Giuffre’s lawsuit came to an end when the two parties agreed on a settlement.
The financial terms of the deal were not disclosed. However, it does include that the Duke of York will “make a substantial donation to Ms Giuffre’s charity in support of victims’ rights”.
According to Giuffre, it was the disgraced financier Jeffrey Epstein who arranged for Andrew to sexually abuse her. And although Prince Andrew has strongly denied the allegations against him, he accepts that she has suffered.
“Prince Andrew has never intended to malign Ms Giuffre’s character, and he accepts that she has suffered both as an established victim of abuse and as a result of unfair public attacks,” the document states.
It was further shared how the member of the Royal Family regrets ever having a friendly relationship with Epstein.
“It is known that Jeffrey Epstein trafficked countless young girls over many years. Prince Andrew regrets his association with Epstein and commends the bravery of Ms Giuffre and other survivors in standing up for themselves and others. He pledges to demonstrate his regret for his association with Epstein by supporting the fight against the evils of sex trafficking, and by supporting its victims.”
