Princess Beatrice Royal Ride Is ... An Uber!!!

11/19/2018 12:40 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Some members of the British Royal Family are just like you ... because Princess Beatrice used a ride-sharing app to whisk her away from the airport. 

We got Princess Beatrice on Friday at LAX after flying in from across the pond ... and, we gotta admit, it was a bit shocking when she hailed an Uber.  

Of course, this was no uberX ... Fergie and Andrew's daughter got picked up in a Lexus Hybrid. Regardless, it's nothing like the transportation available to her grandmother, Queen Elizabeth

Props to Beatrice for grabbing the Uber on her own and opening the car door without waiting for the driver, who apparently had no clue he was picking up royalty.  

Beatrice tells us she's in L.A. on business, and it didn't take long for her to get a taste of what the common passenger deals with at one of America's busiest airports ... because she had to walk to another terminal to find her ride!

Turns out, getting an Uber from LAX is confusing for everyone. 

Prince Harry & Meghan Markle Cozyin' Up ... In Royal Family Photo

11/13/2018 2:10 PM PST

The Royals just released a family portrait for Prince Charles' 70th birthday, and HEY NOW, WOULD YOU LOOK AT THAT STEAMY COUPLE GETTING COZY IN THE BACK!!!

Check out Prince Harry with his left hand firmly on Meghan Markle's waist ... that's a super intimate pose as far as Royal Family portraits go.  

Our palace sources tell us the photos were snapped this summer at Kensington Palace ... which would have been right around the time Harry and Meghan learned she was pregnant, and Harry and Meghan's facial expressions make it look like they've been getting it on.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are looking pretty risque compared to the rest of the Royals ... Prince William isn't anywhere close to Kate Middleton's hip as she holds newborn Prince Louis.

In the front row, Prince Charles bounces Prince George on his lap as he sits next to Camilla and Princess Charlotte.

Harry kept his hands-on approach in the fun pic, with Meghan leaning in and laughing.

It's interesting ... the photos were leaked on Twitter earlier Tuesday, defying an embargo ordered by the Royal Family, but the images were quickly taken down. 

Meghan Markle & Prince Harry Let's Walk Through the (Red)Woods

10/31/2018 8:28 AM PDT

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry passed on costumes for Halloween while down in New Zealand, but their choice of scenery screams that they were still in the spirit.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex continued their international tour Wednesday with a visit to Rotorua, New Zealand ... where they checked out the famous Redwoods Treewalk with lots of suspended bridges and towering timber around them.

Considering Meghan's preggo with their first Royal baby ... this is the most strenuous activity we've seen her undertake in weeks. 

As for the stroll itself, it actually looks super peaceful and gorgeous. Pretty romantic, too -- MM and PH were hand-in-hand much of the day.

Prince Harry & Meghan Markle Plane Forced to Abort Landing

10/26/2018 6:31 AM PDT
Breaking News

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle had a scare Friday when their plane was forced to abort its landing in Sydney ... because another plane was on the runway.

You see in the video the Qantas plane just seconds from landing at Sydney Airport when it suddenly throttles up and regains altitude.

Gotta give credit to the pilot who put a good face on the emergency ... according to BBC journalist Simon Atkinson who was on board, the pilot told passengers, "You'll get another great view of the harbour."

The Royal couple is back in Sydney for the closing ceremonies of the Invictus Games. They were coming from Tonga as part of their 16-day tour that will wrap up in New Zealand.

Queen Elizabeth Mourns Loss of Faithful Companion

10/26/2018 6:44 AM PDT

Queen Elizabeth is in mourning after her faithful companion died at Windsor Castle ... people knew it was coming but it's still a heartbreaking loss.

The Queen's beloved Corgi, Whisper, has passed after an interesting 12-year run at life.

Q.E. adopted the pooch from a former staffer back in 2016. The staffer died and the Queen adopted Whisper. It's her second big loss ... her other Corgi, Willow, died earlier this year.

The 92-year-old monarch still has 2 other dogs to keep her company. And, also Prince Philip

PBS NewsHour Sued You Can't Fire Me For Admiring Meghan Markle!!!

10/25/2018 12:44 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Meghan Markle's drop-dead-gorgeous looks are having unintended consequences for a writer, who claims PBS NewsHour canned him due to a comment he made about the Duchess' looks.

Hugh Heckman, an award-winning newswriter, is suing over his firing. In docs, obtained by TMZ, he says on November 25, 2017, a female coworker sitting 20 feet from his desk complained to her boss after hearing him say "not bad" in reference to a photo of Meghan they were using for a story.

He says another female employee overheard and chimed in, "Haven't you learned?"

Heckman says he was embarrassed because he didn't mean it in a sexual way, and only wanted to convey he thought Meghan "possessed charm and beauty and was a suitable match for her fiance."

He says 2 days later he was fired. In the suit, Heckman says he heard the same 2 female coworkers once call Justin Trudeau "hot," but they were not fired. He's pissed about what he calls an obvious double standard at PBS NewsHour. 

Heckman is suing for wrongful termination based on gender. We've reached out to PBS NewsHour ... so far no word back.

Meghan Markle Tag, You're It!!!

10/25/2018 7:31 AM PDT

Meghan Markle's just like the rest of us -- aside from her crown, her title and her Prince -- sometimes she just forgets to remove the tag from her clothes. Royal oops?!!

Meghan and Prince Harry had the red carpet rolled out for them Thursday after landing on the main island of Tongatapu in Tonga. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex were flanked by Tonga's princess Angelika Latufuipeka ... but no doubt everyone's eyes darted to the bottom of Meghan's dress.

The obvious conspiracy theory is ... Meg, or her wardrobe team, is planning to return the dress. The less conspiratorial take? Someone's ass is getting fired!

We're guessing it's door #2, and giving Meghan a pass for the wardrobe malfunction. For starters, she's about 4 months pregnant, reportedly, so she's got more important things in mind. Second of all, she's built up more than enough points by looking nearly flawless every OTHER time.

BTW ... the royal couple was later whisked away to a reception dinner ... where one of the guests included the "Shirtless Tongan" guy from the Winter Olympics! 'Memba him?!!

Meghan Markle Whisked Away in Fiji ... Over Security Concerns

10/24/2018 6:04 AM PDT

Meghan Markle's popularity is becoming a problem, because she had to hightail it out of a community market in Fiji after the crowd swelled to a potentially dangerous level.

The Duchess of Sussex was jawboning it with vendors at Suva Market to meet female vendors who have worked on the U.N. Women's project "Markets for Change." 

The crowd was so large it spilled into the street and Meghan's security felt so many folks wanted to get close to her security might lose control. The visit was planned for 15 minutes, but halfway through ... she beat a hasty retreat.

Meghan's reportedly 4 months pregnant. BTW ... Prince Harry wasn't there.

The couple is on the 9th day of a 16-day tour of the South Pacific.

Meghan Markle I'm Blue Out!!! No Hiding Baby Bump Now

10/23/2018 8:30 AM PDT

The jig is up for Meghan Markle ... even loose-fitting outfits like this blue gown can't hide what she's got growing in her belly.  

Meghan and Prince Harry are now in Fiji -- the second country in their 16-day autumn tour -- and they kicked off the visit with an official welcoming ceremony ... then headed off to a state dinner hosted by Fiji's Prez, Jioji Konrote.

Harry opted for the classic tux while Meghan slipped into a blue cape dress ... fashion tribute to Fiji. If it wasn't obvious before, it sure is now ... Meghan's really showing. We don't know exactly how far along she is ... the Palace has only said she's due sometime in the Spring. 

Pregnancy looks great on Megs, no doubt. Ditto for those gigantic diamond earrings she was rocking ... which were reportedly borrowed from Queen Elizabeth.

In-laws ... they ARE good for something.

Meghan Markle & Prince Harry Delay U.S. Tour ... Thanks a Lot, Royal Baby!

10/23/2018 12:40 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry won't set foot on U.S. soil anytime soon, as previously scheduled, and it's all because of the royal bun in the oven ... TMZ has learned.

Sources tell us the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are pushing back their U.S. tour from Spring 2019 until Fall 2019, in light of Meg's pregnancy. We're told she's due sometime in the Spring, and they want to give her time to adjust to motherhood before hitting the road again.

Makes sense ... Meghan's already had to pump the brakes on some appearances this month, amid their 16-day tour through Australia, New Zealand, Tonga and Fiji. 

There's a silver lining here for those dying to see the American princess. We're told when they do arrive stateside ... Meghan and Harry plan to bring their baby with them. He or she would be roughly 6 months old by then.

One more fun fact ... Meghan will still be an American citizen when she does visit -- she's still going through the process of becoming a British citizen. So, she'll be a true American princess in her homeland. 

As for their baby? We broke the story ... there's a way the kid, a potential British monarch, could also become U.S. Prez. Think that'll draw a crowd?  

Meghan Markle Back to Royal Duty

10/22/2018 6:54 AM PDT

Meghan Markle is torn ... between resting for her pregnancy, and fulfilling her royal duties with Prince Harry on this massive 16-day tour.

As of Monday, the Duchess of Sussex was back on her J-O-B ... visiting Fraser Island in Australia with Harry. She had been noticeably absent at the Invictus Games' cycling and sailing competitions Sunday. 

The palace said Harry and Meghan "decided to cut back her schedule slightly for the next couple of days, ahead of the final week-and-a-half of the tour." It's a long 16-day tour ... they're also scheduled to visit Fiji, Tonga and New Zealand.

Mama-to-be's gonna need to pace herself, for obvious reasons.

Prince Harry & Meghan Our Kid Could Be President ... But There's a Catch

10/21/2018 12:50 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have an interesting decision to make -- it has nothing to do with baby names, but it will decide whether their firstborn can be President ... of the good ole U.S. of A.

We did some digging and discovered Harry and Meghan will need to fill out special paperwork to make their royal baby a naturalized U.S. citizen. They have to sign it, not the kid -- meaning, he or she will have no choice in whether they can be an American. 

The baby doesn't get an automatic U.S. citizenship because Meghan -- who will still be an American citizen when she gives birth -- and her child won't be living in the States. Hence, the special form is a must.

Our palace sources confirm Meghan intends to become a British citizen, but it's unclear if she will renounce her U.S. citizenship ... which makes the decision over her kid's citizenship so fascinating.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have until the child's 18th birthday to fill out the paperwork. If they get through the red tape -- and let's face it, the Royals can handle red tape -- the kid will be eligible to run for U.S. Prez.    

Remember, Harry and Meghan's first child -- Victoria, Albert or whoever -- will be 7th in line for the British throne, while still satisfying the requirements to become POTUS. Kinda cool. 

Prince Harry Gets High in Australia!!! ... Prime Minister in Tow

10/19/2018 7:06 AM PDT

Prince Harry knows how to rise above things ... in this case, scaling the Sydney Harbour Bridge.

Harry climbed the iconic landmark in Australia Friday afternoon along with Prime Minister Scott Morrison. Not for nothing but it seemed Harry was nervous ... looking serious and holding on tight. Probs thankful the Mrs., Meghan Markle, stayed behind. She's got a good reason, with the pregnancy and all.

In case you're wondering ... the climb's nearly 500 feet and 1,332 steps. That's a lot of calories burned. He was up there to hoist the flag of the Invictus Games on the eve of the international Paralympic event ... founded by Harry.

Mission accomplished.
