Meghan Markle I Can Always Count on My Mom!!! Visits for Cookbook Launch

9/20/2018 9:36 AM PDT

Meghan Markle's mom came flying to her daughter's side for the Duchess of Sussex's first solo project this week, and the timing of her visit couldn't be more perfect.

Doria Ragland joined Meghan and Prince Harry Thursday at a London event to launch a new cookbook for a communal kitchen Meghan is supporting. She wrote the foreword for the book.

Recent reports say Meghan is feeling kinda lonely as a new member of the Royal Family -- so, a visit from Mom would probably help cure the blues. That's also why some outlets are speculating Doria might eventually move to London. 

Based on the way Meghan was looking at Doria before and during the event ... we're guessing she'd love to have mama bear close.

Interestingly, Princess Diana famously struggled with loneliness after marrying Prince Charles.

Sooo ... Doria to the rescue?

Meghan Markle Supports Fire Victims With Charity Cookbook

9/17/2018 7:20 AM PDT

Meghan Markle made secret visits to cook with victims of a horrifying fire as part of her first solo project as a member of the Royal Family, and she's helping release a charity cookbook with the women's recipes.  

The Duchess of Sussex was hands-on in a community kitchen in West London, located near the Grenfell Tower fire that killed 72 people -- Britain's deadliest fire since World War II.  

Meghan says she felt an immediate connection to the women at the Hubb Community Kitchen at the Al Manaar Muslim Cultural Heritage Centre, and newly released images make it clear her presence lifted everyone's spirits in the wake of tragedy.

Meghan wrote the foreword to the charity book, "Together: Our Community Cookbook." It features family recipes, with roots stretching across Europe, the Middle East, North Africa and the Eastern Mediterranean. 

Meghan helped spearhead the cookbook project as a way to raise money for the kitchen, which initially provided a place for fire victims to make fresh meals. It's since evolved into a support network, and profits from the book will help cover operation costs. 

The Duchess first visited the kitchen in January, and continued to make secret trips to meet the women and learn more about their work. Their cookbook hits stores Thursday. 

Jason Wu on Meghan Markle Not Sure If She's Pregnant ... But, She's Easy to Work With!!!

9/13/2018 11:25 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Meghan Markle is a royal, so you could forgive her for being high maintenance when it comes to picking an ensemble, but designer Jason Wu says she's easy like Sunday morning when it comes to fashion.

We got Jason Wednesday at LAX ... and he tells us Meghan simply picked out a dress from his upcoming spring collection to wear to a charity concert in London. 

There's been speculation Meghan might be pregnant based on the fit of that dress, but Jason says he isn't privy to that royal secret ... IF it's true. 

The royal clothing budget for Meghan, Prince Harry, Prince William and Kate Middleton has reportedly increased by $2 million to a whopping $6.5 mil -- which certainly doesn't sound low maintenance, but Jason says that ain't on Meghan. 

Meghan is a fashion icon now and has been compared to her late mother-in-law, Princess Diana

Di famously poured over fabrics and designs in Kensington Palace -- but Jason says Meghan's just not that picky. Everyone's different.

Still, it's easy to see why Jason is dying to work with Meghan again.

Meghan Markle Dog S*** Happens Even on Palace Grounds???

9/12/2018 12:23 PM PDT

12:50 PM PT -- A source at the Palace tells us the photo posted by the reporter is not Meghan and it's not her dog either. The mess is someone else's s**t.

Meghan Markle might be a royal now, but her pup ain't nothin' but a hound dog who's still gotta handle his business ... even if it's on Kensington Palace grounds.

Entertainment reporter Lisa Petrillo tweeted a photo of Meghan Wednesday in what she describes as "outside the entrance to (her and Harry's) private residence" within Kensington Palace. You can see Meghan letting her dog poop right there out in the open.

It sounds like Petrillo approached Meghan and engaged her, 'cause she notes in her tweet that she "couldn't have been sweeter." Meghan also apparently picked up her dog's mess, with Petrillo using the hashtag #princessespickuppooptoo.

As funny as the pic is, there are two questions at play -- first, was Meghan's dog actually s****ing on the Palace grounds? The short answer is yes. We know there are public and private parts of Kensington Palace, and if Meghan was just outside her private entrance, it would appear she was on the public end of it. Still counts as royal territory.

Perhaps more importantly, whose dog is this exactly?

We know she's already got a beagle named Guy, but he looks vastly different than this pooch. There are also reports that Meghan and Harry recently got a new dog together, but it's apparently a Labrador Retriever. That breed ain't what we're seeing here. Hmmm ...

Meghan Markle & Prince Harry 'Hamilton's' Better The Third Time ... Thanks, Lin-Manuel!!!

8/29/2018 1:37 PM PDT

Ah, the perks of the Royal family. 

First, let's once again congratulate Prince Harry for locking down Meghan Markle. A tuxedo mini dress never looked this good!!!

Second, let's imagine how AMAZING it would be to see "Hamilton" not once, not twice, but 3 times!!!

Oh, and did we mention the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are watching the musical alongside its creator, Lin-Manuel Miranda?!?! 

Must be nice.

It's all going down in London ... and it's all for a good cause. 

Wednesday's performance is helping raise funds for one of Harry's charities, Sentebale, which does life-changing work for youth affected by HIV and AIDS in Africa. 

Meghan, Harry and Lin-Manuel were guests of honor. 

It's the first time Meghan and Harry have seen "Hamilton" as a married couple. They saw it during a date night in February, and Meghan also saw the show in NYC with Priyanka Chopra.

Thomas Markle No Ace Up His Sleeve ... Clothing Line News is Phony

8/16/2018 12:40 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Thomas Markle certainly has his own style, but the idea of him starting his own clothing line is "ridiculous" ... so say sources close to Meghan's dad.

Rumors of Tom M. trying to become the next Tom Ford began Wednesday when the Duchess of Sussex's half-sister, Samantha Markle, tweeted it out ... saying she was excited about her dad's new clothing line for men.

We're told this is absolutely untrue and the only credible part of Samantha's additional claim that Thomas is focusing on a line of hoodies for older dudes ... is that he does indeed like to wear hoodies.

When we last talked to Thomas, he made it clear he was not going away until he had some contact with his daughter and the Royal Fam ... but our sources insist launching his own hoodie collection is not part of the plan.

Prince Harry Used Car Sells for Nearly $100k ... And It's a Steal!!!

8/6/2018 7:52 AM PDT

Someone REALLY wanted a piece of Prince Harry memorabilia ... and dropped nearly $100k for one of his cars.

Harry's 2017 Audi RS6 4.0 Avant came off the market as quickly as it went up -- we're told the company in charge of unloading the car sold it in about 4 days. The new owner dropped $92,966.12 to be exact. The sport sedan has only had 1 previous owner ... a royal, at that. 

The new owner got a pretty great deal -- that Audi usually retails for around $180k. Prince Harry was seen driving it back in May 2017 as he was leaving Pippa Middleton and James Matthews' wedding early. He was reportedly on his way to pick up then-girlfriend Meghan Markle from Kensington Palace and then whisk her off to the evening reception.

No word if Harry -- now a married man -- is in the market for a mini van.

Bishop Michael Curry Fighting Prostate Cancer

7/26/2018 8:04 AM PDT

Bishop Michael Curry -- the man who told Prince Harry and Meghan "love is the way" -- is now dealing with a cancer diagnosis.

Bishop Curry says he found out a few months ago, during an annual exam, he has prostate cancer ... and he's now decided on a course of treatment.

He'll undergo surgery next week to remove his prostate gland, and anticipates taking 4-6 weeks to recuperate ... before getting back to work. Curry says, "I am happy to say that the prognosis looks very good and quite positive."

The bishop's "love is the way" homily stole the show at the royal wedding and brought him international fame. We saw him in NYC getting swarmed by fans the week after the ceremony.

Samantha Markle It's Meghan's Fault If Our Dad Dies!!!

7/18/2018 7:44 AM PDT

If Meghan Markle continues giving her father the cold shoulder, it might kill him ... or so Meghan's sister seemed to insinuate in an angry tirade.

Samantha Markle went off Tuesday evening, ripping into Meghan for allegedly shutting Thomas Markle out of her life. She said, "If our father dies I'm holding you responsible, Meg!" She also chastised Meghan for "paying tribute" to others while dissing her own blood. Meghan and Prince Harry attended a Nelson Mandela tribute yesterday.

As we reported, Thomas is vowing to continue speaking out to the media, at least until he has contact with Meghan. He told us no one is responding to the phone numbers he was given to reach her.

Samantha defended Thomas, saying ... "My father is not an embarrassment for loving his daughter. The royals are an embarrassment for being so cold."

There's plenty of bad blood between the half-sisters -- this isn't the first time Samantha's lashed out at Meghan.

As far as we know, Thomas is not in any immediate health crisis -- however, he did have that heart procedure that kept him from attending the wedding. 

Thomas Markle Let's Talk, Royals Because I'm Not Going Away!!!

7/17/2018 10:38 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Meghan Markle's father wants some attention, or at least an acknowledgement, from the Royal Family ... and he's not going to shut up until he gets it.

Thomas Markle tells TMZ ... he's unfazed by news his Duchess daughter and Prince Harry are reportedly frustrated about his recent paid interview with The Sun, because he just wants to be involved in their lives.

He says, "I was silent for a full year and the press beat me up every day saying I was a hermit hiding in Mexico, so I gave my story. Apparently that interview put the Royal Family in their silence mode ... so, I gave another interview to break the silence. All they have to do is speak to me.”

Thomas believes the silent treatment from the Palace is silly, wishful thinking on their part that he'll just go away. He insists that's not happening -- and he just wants to be in contact with Meghan.

Still, he's staying a little optimistic ... "Tomorrow is my birthday, 74 years old, and I’m enjoying the fact that I can make the entire Royal Family not speak and maybe I can get a laugh out of the Duchess."

Kate and Meghan Double Duchess ... We Roll with Serena!!!

7/14/2018 7:13 AM PDT

9:33 AM PT -- Serena was defeated by Angelique Kerber, 6-3 6-3, who won her first career Wimbledon title and third major. Serena was interviewed after the match, saying she was disappointed she couldn't get the win for all the moms out there ... but thanked everyone for their support and said she was happy to be back.Meghan Markle has friends in high places, and not just at the Palace ... because she showed up to watch her good friend Serena Williams try to make some history.

Meghan brought sister-in-law Kate Middleton along for the ride to sit in the peanut gallery at Wimbledon, to watch Serena attempt a super-human feat ... bouncing back after a difficult post-pregnancy to tie the record for Grand Slam wins.

Serena's about to take center court ... trying to snag her 24th Slam win. 

President Trump Pleased to Meet Ya, Queen Elizabeth! Spares Her the Power Shake

7/13/2018 10:17 AM PDT

President Trump and First Lady Melania Trump are getting the royal treatment -- the long-awaited meeting with Queen Elizabeth is going down ... and, so far, so good.

The Prez and Her Majesty finally met Friday at Windsor Castle where a Guard of Honor gave the Trumps a royal salute, which included "The Star-Spangled Banner."

While Trump's known for busting out the alpha male power handshake with foreign dignitaries ... he went easy on QE2. Afterward, they went inside for, what else ... afternoon tea. 

Thousands of Brits are protesting Prez Trump's visit in response to his criticisms of Prime Minister Theresa May and London's mayor -- but, everything was pretty chill on the Castle grounds.

Trump's making himself right at home too. Sarah Huckabee Sanders posted a shot of him sitting in Winston Churchill's chair.

Far as we've heard, Trump's made zero royal etiquette faux pas. Score one for us. 

Meghan Markle & Prince Harry Put Their Best Faces Forward ... Irish Kids LOVE it!!!

7/11/2018 7:47 AM PDT

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are gonna be hands-on parents judging by their trip to Ireland, where a bunch of kids got all up in their royal grills ... in a good way.

The newlyweds are in Dublin, their first official visit since the wedding, where it looks like they were a huge hit with the five-and-under crowd at Croke Park stadium.

The royals got to watch some traditional Gaelic sports, but the real show was the cute kids. Favorite games of the day appeared to include ... "Where's Your Nose?" and "Where's Your Beard?".

Start the countdown to "When are these 2 having a baby??".
