Prince George Targeted by ISIS Terrorist

6/1/2018 5:00 AM PDT
Breaking News

Prince George was the target of a terrorist, and the man who encouraged ISIS to carry out a plot at the boy's school has just confessed.

32-year-old Husnain Rashid had maintained his innocence since his arrest last November, but in a court hearing he now admits he carried out a number of terroristic acts and engaged in preparation for other attacks.

Rashid posted a pic of Prince George -- 3rd in line to the throne -- next to a silhouette of a jihadi fighter. He posted the address of George's school and wrote, "even the royal family will not be left alone."

He'll be sentenced June 28.

This is not the first time the little Royal's school has been the center of suspicious activity. Right after George started primary school last Sept, a woman was arrested allegedly trying to break into the school.

Thomas Markle I Never Asked My Daughter For Money

5/31/2018 12:40 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Meghan Markle's dad, Thomas, has never asked his daughter for money -- despite reports -- because he says he leads a frugal life by choice and doesn't need extra cash.

Thomas is shooting down reports that, in the weeks before his daughter's lavish royal wedding, he reached out to Meghan for money on at least two occasions and Meghan refused to help him out.

Thomas tells us the rumor is "just plain bulls***" despite outlets repeatedly pushing the story. He says he's got a decent retirement fund and doesn't need his daughter's help when it comes to money, but if he did he knows Meghan would help him out.

Thomas says money has never been a topic of conversation between the two. Neither brings it up when they talk.

As for his health ... he says he's been resting a lot since his heart surgery and will be going to his 2-week follow-up appointment next week.   

Prince Harry & Meghan Markle Canada Bound for Royal Honeymoon Pretty Lovely Spot, Eh?

5/28/2018 1:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are heading to a spot with a royal reputation for their honeymoon, and it's not too far from her homeland, just up north of the border ... TMZ has learned.

We're told the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are going to Alberta, Canada's Fairmont Jasper Park Lodge for their post-wedding getaway, and will be staying at the 6,000 sq. ft. Outlook Cabin ... aka "The Royal Retreat."

Our sources say the resort ordered some gear and goodies it doesn't normally keep on hand for Meghan and Harry. It's unclear exactly when they'll be arriving, but we're told both British and Canadian security will be involved when they do.

So, why this place? Well, it's considered a Canadian Paradise -- tucked away in the middle of Jasper National Park -- and has a rich history of royal guests ... from both England and Hollywood.

King George VI and Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother stayed there in 1939, and the current Queen and Prince Philip hit it up in June 2005. Celebs like Anthony Hopkins, John Travolta and Bill Gates vacation there ... and it's where the 1954 Marilyn Monroe/Robert Mitchum film "River of No Return" was shot.

Enjoy your stay, you crazy Royal newlyweds!

Thomas Markle My Daughter's Hitched... Now, Leave Me Alone!!!

5/22/2018 3:05 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Thomas Markle says he's still being chased by paparazzi days after his daughter's marriage ... and he can't even go through a drive-thru without getting hounded.

Thomas tells TMZ the pictures of him grabbing a drink Monday were taken right after his friend picked him up from a safe house where he'd been recovering from his emergency heart surgery. Thomas says there were 5 cars filled with paps following them. What's worse, his friend's small kid was in the car.

Thomas says he's being bombarded inside his housing complex, where he needed the help of four security guards Monday to get him safely inside his home.

Thomas says he just wants to be left alone. Thomas tells us, "I never asked for this and my friends never asked for this and photographers, knowing there's a child in the car, have no business chasing it."

And, as for the alleged Frappuccino, Thomas says his drink didn't have coffee and he didn't finish it, adding don't worry about his heart.

Royal Wedding's Bishop Curry A Rockstar in NYC The Love's Going Strong!

5/22/2018 11:19 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Bishop Curry is getting major love in New York City after preaching about it at Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's wedding. 

We got the bishop in NYC Tuesday, where he was making the media rounds after his powerful sermon, hypothesizing on a world where "love is the way." He was getting swarmed by fans on the street ... people asking questions, and wanting selfies.

Our photog asks if he thought he'd get this much attention prior to his Royal Wedding appearance -- he says no, but doesn't mind making folks a little happy because of it. That jibes with what he told us Monday ... that his message of love wasn't sappy BS

He's also got some advice for any normies who aren't of Royal descent that might be tying the knot. Yep ... you guessed it.

Prince Harry & Meghan Honeymoon Can Wait ... Dad's 70th Birthday Calls!

5/22/2018 9:37 AM PDT

Meghan Markle, the Duchess of Sussex, slid right into her new title and looked like she's always been in the Royal Fam as they gathered to celebrate her father-in-law's birthday.

Prince Harry and his bride had a prime spot Tuesday at the Buckingham Palace celebration for Prince Charles' 70th birthday kickoff event. Charles' actual bday isn't until November but, y'know the Royals ... it's going to be a whole 6-month jubilee with multiple parties.

The royal family's clearly welcomed Meghan into the fold. Aside from Charles stepping up to walk her down the aisle after her dad's emergency heart surgery -- Megs was front and center next to Camilla during the Palace event.

As for the honeymoon ... looks like royal duties take precedence.

Meghan Markle's Dad Buys a Frappuccino Just Days After Heart Surgery

5/21/2018 6:43 PM PDT

Meghan Markle's father might've missed his daughter's wedding with Prince Harry, but he wasn't missing his Starbucks while on the mend ... broken hearts be damned. 

The Duchess' dad, Thomas Markle, was in Rosarito, Mexico Monday stopping off at a Starbucks drive-thru -- and seemingly walking away with a Frappuccino in hand, whipped cream and all. Mind you ... Thomas just underwent heart surgery last week. 

Now, we're not doctors or anything ... but for whatever reason, it doesn't seem like a good idea to slurp up one of Bucks' sweetest, calorie-packed beverages on the heels of a heart procedure -- not to mention a very recent heart attack, too. That's just us, though.

Maybe he's just celebrating the fact that Meghan's wedding went off without a hitch, despite the fact he couldn't be there. Consolation caffeine hits the spot, apparently.

Royal Wedding's Bishop Curry Love's Already Changed the World ... My Sermon's On Point!!!

EXCLUSIVE

Bishop Michael Curry's got proof his powerful words at Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's Royal Wedding were more than just trite sayings ... and, in fact, his "love is the way" sermon is kinda what Kanye West was talking about when he visited our offices. 

We spoke with Bishop Curry -- who delivered a rousing sermon at the Duke and Duchess' nuptials Saturday -- and he tells us he wasn't BSing with his repeated message of ... well, things are generally better "when love is the way." Far from it ... dude truly believes that.

The Bishop cites multiple examples of icons throughout history who led with love, and he says their approach has helped move the world forward. And for those who are cynical ... check out his Dr. Phil moment ... it's meant for folks just like them. 

Prince Harry & Meghan Come Up for Air, Grinning Like They ... (Wink, wink)

5/21/2018 9:51 AM PDT

If you wondered how Prince Harry and Meghan spent their first day married ... the looks on their faces Monday should answer any questions.

The royal newlyweds had a certain glow about 'em as they arrived back at their home at Kensington Palace in London -- the first sighting since Saturday's festivities. They've done away with all the pomp and circumstance ... no chauffeur, as Harry drove his bride.

No immediate honeymoon for Megs and Harry ... they've postponed it for Prince Charles' 70th birthday Patronage Celebration. There's a public celebration for the future King of England on Tuesday.

Just 'cause they didn't jet off somewhere doesn't mean the Duke and Duchess of Sussex didn't start the party. Sunday funday, indeed.

Paris Hilton I'm Ready to Unveil the Truth Meghan's Getup was Awesome!!!

5/21/2018 6:52 AM PDT

Meghan Markle's haute couture Givenchy wedding dress wasn't the showstopper of the Royal Wedding, it was her 16-foot veil, according to Paris Hilton.

We got Paris at LAX over the weekend fresh off the plane from the Cannes Film Festival where she raised a ton of cash for charity and asked her what she thought of the Royal Wedding. Paris, who got engaged to fiance Chris Zylka over New Years, didn't have anything to say about the dress, but the veil was a different story.

Markle wore a tiara from Queen Elizabeth with the veil which was decorated with flowers from all 53 countries in the British Commonwealth along the trim. Markle also added the California Poppy, the State flower of California. The veil reportedly took hundreds of hours to make.

It'll be hard to top, even for Paris.

SNL Royal Wedding Reception ... We're Just as Screwed Up as You!!!

5/20/2018 6:36 AM PDT

SNL parodied the Royal wedding reception of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, and the funny is also relatable ... everyone has screwed up family members.

Mikey Day played Prince Harry and walked through the party introducing friends and relatives from both sides ... from a royal with pedophile tendencies to a "Deal or No Deal" briefcase model.

Shout out to Alex Moffat for his Prince William impersonation, and Tina Fey for Auntie Creepy.

Of course a portion of the reception is devoted to Meghan's warring fam ... truth is, in this case reality is way more interesting than parody.

One hilarious line ... when one of the partygoers asks the Queen if she's pissed off over "The Crown," because the show makes her look like a bitch!

Prince Harry & Meghan Markle New Duds and a Fancy Car For the After-Party

5/19/2018 11:59 AM PDT

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are on their way to the more private evening reception following their Royal Wedding, and they're heading there in style ... James Bond style.

Meghan Markle changed out of her wedding dress into a white sleeveless, high-neck gown by Stella McCartney ... while Prince Harry put on a classic black and white tux that screams 007. The newlyweds left Windsor Castle to head to their second reception, hosted by Prince Charles at Frogmore House.

To top it all off ... the 2 hopped in Prince Charles' silver blue Jaguar E-Type Concept Zero -- which also gives off some strong Bond vibes -- and Harry drove them to the party.

As we reported ... Meghan and Harry got hitched Saturday morning in a wedding that was dramatic and kind of an awesome break from Royal tradition.

Congrats again!

Prince Harry & Meghan Markle They Got Hitched and it was Awesome!!!

5/19/2018 12:30 AM PDT

The big day has finally come for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle ... Meghan is now a Duchess and the wedding was a dramatic and kinda awesome break from Royal tradition.

Meghan and Harry chose the song "Stand By Me," as an anthem to their nuptials. A Black American Bishop stole the show and she walked half way down the aisle herself as a show of independence.

Meghan is now the Duchess of Sussex ... Harry is the Duke. 

Lots of celebs were on hand, including Oprah, George and Amal Clooney as well as David and Victoria Beckham.

Meghan's dad, Thomas Markle, tells TMZ, "My baby looks beautiful and she looks very happy.  I wish I were there and I wish them all my love and all happiness." Thomas is in California, recovering from heart surgery. He says watching the ceremony was "emotional and joyful."

Meghan's mom was a big hit ... clearly moved by the ceremony as she sat front and center.

Meghan wore a Givenchy wedding gown, designed by Clare Waight Keller, the first female artistic director of the French company. 

It looks like Meghan's not going back to "Suits."
