Meghan Markle latest news: Duchess dies in car wreck in controversial film trailer as fans slam 'appalling' tribute

In shocking and insensitive scenes, the actress playing the 40-year-old Duchess is seen lying in the wreckage of an overturned car, surrounded by photographers.

A desperate Harry pushes his way through the mob before pulling the door open, where a seriously injured Meghan pleads with him to “help me.”

But the crash is just a nightmare and Harry wakes up and is comforted to see wife Meghan and baby Archie.

The sickening scenes mirror the real-life tragedy of Harry's late mother, Princess Diana, who died in a car accident in Paris in August 1997.

The trailer has left Royal fans horrified, with one writing on Twitter: "Harry & Meghan, escaping the palace? I think Diana would be appalled."

Another added: "Harry and meghan escaping the palace… wtf is that."

    HARRY COMPARED TO EDWARD VIII AFTER HE FADED OUT OF PUBLIC VIEW – AND WROTE AN AUTOBIOGRAPHY

    In an interview with Fox News, Mr Bullen listed some of the similarities between Harry and Edward.

    Edward, who abdicated in 1936 to marry American divorcee and socialite Wallis, wrote a ghost-written autobiography after he was cut off with no source of income.

    Book A King’s Story: Memoirs of the Duke of Windsor was published in 1951, and included detail about the royal split and his relationship with Wallis.

    Harry is currently writing his own memoirs after signing a £29million four-book mega-deal.

    MEGHAN MARKLE AND PRINCE HARRY ‘PROUD’ OF THEIR NEW LIFE IN AMERICA

    Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are said to be proud of their new life in America despite a “difficult” few years.

    In a new epilogue of the book Finding Freedom, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are reported to have no regrets about their decision to quit royal life.

    The Royal Family was hurled into crisis mode when the couple quit the Firm last year and the Queen was forced to publicly respond to claims made in their bombshell Oprah interview.

    But Town & Country reports that in an updated chapter of Finding Freedom, authors Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand say “as difficult as recent years have been, neither Harry nor Meghan have any regrets about the decisions they have made”.

    LADY LOUISE WINDSOR FACES BIG ROYAL DECISION AS SHE APPROACHES 18TH BIRTHDAY

    Lady Louise is the daughter of Prince Edward and Sophie. In two months she will turn 18, and when she reaches the milestone she will decide if she wants to use the HRH title.

    The Countess of Wessex told the Sunday Times in 2020 that: “we try to bring them up with the understanding they are very likely to have to work for a living.

    “Hence we made the decision not to use HRH titles.

    “They have them and can decide to use them from 18, but I think it’s highly unlikely.”

    Louise’s brother, Viscount Severn will also face the same decision when he celebrates his 18th birthday. He is only 13 so has some time to make up his mind.

    KRISTEN STEWART SHOWS OFF HER ENDLESS LEGS AS SHE PROMOTES NEW DIANA MOVIE

    The movie, Spencer, premiered at the Venice Film Festival yesterday and Kristen made sure she stood out on the red carpet in a mint green tunic.

    Kristen said of the film: “It doesn’t offer any new information.

    "It just imagines a feeling.”

    The US actress, 31, said she thinks tragic Di was a historical one-of-a-kind who “really sticks out as a sparkly house on fire”.

    This is a Sun exclusive.

    Furious Meghan Markle is said to be”more determined than ever,” to get the last word and speak out after Piers Morgan’s Ofcom victory.

    “And it just kind of – the divide is getting ever deeper. And the longer it goes on, the rift, you just wonder, how on earth can they ever come back from that?

    “They will up their game in terms of putting out more statements, being more independent and just pushing away even further.”

    BIG BUCKS: MEGHAN MARKLE & PRINCE HARRY STILL OWE £78,500 TO CHARITY AS THEIR FOUNDATION FINALLY CLOSES

    The couple’s MWX Foundation, formerly Sussex Royal, is in liquidation but has not paid off the unnamed non-profit, papers released today revealed.

    The report said a claim of £213,000 had been received from a creditor relating to a grant due to a “not-for-profit enterprise”.

    A total of £134,500 has been paid off, according to the most recent figures, leaving £78,500 left to hand over.

    The Duke and Duchess of Sussex began winding up MWX a year ago, declaring all of its debts would be paid in full within 12 months.

    But more than 12 months later and the outstanding amount on the Companies House document remains.

    It reads: “The charity has sufficient funds to settle the claim in full and a final dividend is to be made shortly to pay the remaining balance.”

    PIERS MORGAN SAYS QUEEN OF WOKE MEGHAN MARKLE CAN’T SILENCE US ANYMORE – IF SHE CAN HAVE HER VIEWS THEN I CAN HAVE MINE

    The ex-GMB host was yesterday cleared by Ofcom after accusing Meghan of making up claims in her and husband Harry’s interview with Oprah Winfrey that a senior royal had been racist, and that Meghan’s mental health had suffered.

    Piers called her a “whiny, forked-tongue actress” and said the report was a “resounding defeat for Princess Pinocchio”.

    He told The Sun: “The woke brigade think they can vilify, shame, silence and get fired anyone who has an opinion they don’t like.

    “Meghan Markle is the queen of this culture, who personally sought to have me lose my job — and succeeded.

    “Why are she and Prince Harry entitled to have their opinion but I’m not entitled to mine?”

    The presenter watched the second day of the test match between England and India behind a grouchy ITV boss Kevin Lygo.

    THE BIZARRE ROYAL FAMILY TRADITION GIVEN THE BOOT BY PRINCE PHILLIP

    According to Royal expert Richard Jobson, Prince Phillip “cancelled” a “ridiculous” royal family tradition after he found out where it came from.

    The no-nonsense Duke apparently grew increasingly irritated by what he deemed to be “outdated” rules and traditions and therefore banned a tradition that came from Queen Victoria herself.

    She would always order a bottle of whiskey of she had a cold. It became the case that a bottle would always appear at the monarch’s bedside.

    Mr Jobson said: “[Philip] was determined to modernise things inside the Palace.

    “He was the person that brought the television cameras into the coronation ceremony. He was the person that really wanted to conduct the first TV interviews, and did so.

    “He was a great believer in science and technology. So he was someone who really did want to change the way things were done.”

    Mr Jobson added: “He found some of the things completely ridiculous and outdated.

    “The Queen had to sort of temper that, that enthusiasm to change things.”

    SUSSEXES COULD APPEAR ON BIG SCREEN, OMID SCOBIE HINTS

    As the Duke and Duchess continue to form strong relationships amongst LA’s elite, it seems they could be broadening their horizons after stepping back from the Royal family by planning to appear on the big screen.

    Scobie revealed on the Royally Obsessed podcast: “I had a very interesting conversation with some executives at Netflix recently. I was trying my best to get a little bit on the Sussexes.

    “All that was said to me was ‘oh man, you don’t even know the half of what they’re working on. They are aiming so high’.

    “So I think the one thing that may surprise us at one point – and I don’t know when this will be – and this is just my own guess really… I think this is when we’re going to hear some sort of movie announcement.”

    PIERS MORGAN BRANDS MEGHAN MARKLE A ‘WHINY FORK-TONGUED ACTRESS’ AND ‘DEMONSTRABLE LIAR’ AFTER OFCOM WIN

    Following the sensational win for free speech, he said Meghan wrote to his ITV boss Dame Carolyn McCall demanding “his head on a plate,” as the Duchess used her “gender” to get through to McCall – which Piers calls “nauseating.”

    Piers wrote in the Daily Mail: “What has the world come to when a whiny fork-tongued actress can dictate who presents a morning television news programme?

    “It was preposterous that I had to leave a job I loved because I didn’t believe a demonstrable liar.”

    He added: “Make no mistake, this is a watershed moment in the battle for free speech.

    “None of the couple’s most sensational and damaging statements about racism and mental health have yet been supported by a shred of evidence amid furious denials from the Royal Family. 

    “So, my observation that I didn’t believe Meghan Markle is looking stronger by the day. And for the record, I still don’t believe her.”

    ITV’S STATEMENT ON PIERS’ INVESTIGATION IN THE WAKE OF OPRAH WINFREY’S INTERVIEW WITH THE DUKE AND DUCHESS OF SUSSEX

    After careful consideration, the broadcaster found the programme, nor Piers Morgan, was not in breach of our broadcasting rules.

    The full decision is available here, and part of the statement, given by an Ofcom spokesperson reads: “This was a finely-balanced decision. Mr Morgan’s comments were potentially harmful and offensive to viewers, and we recognise the strong public reaction to them. But we also took full account of freedom of expression. Under our rules, broadcasters can include controversial opinions as part of legitimate debate in the public interest, and the strong challenge to Mr Morgan from other contributors provided important context for viewers.

    “Nonetheless, we’ve reminded ITV to take greater care around content discussing mental health and suicide in future. ITV might consider the use of timely warnings or signposting of support services to ensure viewers are properly protected.”

    BUCKINGHAM PALACE ‘FURIOUS’ AT QUEEN’S SECRET DEATH PLANS BEING LEAKED

    Top officials are said to be on the warpath, with a probe into who revealed the documents under way.

    The secret blueprint for Operation London Bridge – the codename for the plans – reveals every detail of the official response, from Charles’ ‘mourning tour’ of the UK to what royals will post on social media.

    It also details fears that London will be “stretched to breaking point” as millions of mourners head to the capital.

    The top-secret document was handed to a political website in a shocking breach.

    And aides are now tracking the person responsible after the plans made headlines around the world.

    Such details are meant to remain private and embargoed – as they were when the Duke of Edinburgh died in April.

    MEGHAN MARKLE WILL BE ‘ABSOLUTELY LIVID’ AS PIERS MORGAN WINS OFCOM RULING OVER ‘LIAR’ BLAST AND ‘WILL SPEAK TO LAWYERS’

    Royal biographer Angela Levin says the Duchess of Sussex could bring her lawyers in after Ofcom ruled the former Good Morning Britain host was entitled to give his opinions about her during a heated debate.

    Following the sensational win for free speech, Piers said Meghan wrote to his ITV boss Dame Carolyn McCall demanding “his head on a plate,” in a “nauseating” bid to get him fired.

    And it’s believed the Duchess will be as angry now that her pleas failed and Piers won the complaint.

    On how Meghan will feel about the ruling, Royal author Angela Levin told The Sun Online: “I think she will be absolutely livid and she’ll ask her lawyers to see what they can do about it.

    “She can’t cope with someone saying she didn’t tell the truth. Because she is all about compassion and understanding and caring for people.”
