Harry, 37, and his wife Meghan Markle clapped enthusiastically as the UK flags were waved in front of the 2,000-strong crowd at Bridgewater Hall in Manchester on Monday night.

    THE pompous little statement from the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s Hollywood PR department says it all.  They “remain committed to their duty and service to the UK,” it read, “as evidenced by their work over the past year.” 2Harry and Meghan say they are committed to their duty - their duty to themselves, writes Ingrid SewardCredit: AFP or licensors To us, it looks as if their work over the past year has been securing lucrative deals with Netflix and Spotify. That is indeed duty and service but it looks like it is mainly duty and service to the Duke and Duchess of Sussex. If you do good works — which they do — they will always be overshadowed by the money-making deals that race smartly alongside them. No one cares about the unseen, unglamorous works they undertake when they live such a high-profile lifestyle.

The former American actress, who became the Duchess of Sussex when she married Britain’s Prince Harry in May 2018, endured a whirlwind of triumphs and drama this year alongside her husband and their firstborn Archie.

    Least surprising news of the world's most surprising year is that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are launching a rival to the Queen's honors list.

The couple has filed court documents to trademark their new awards scheme which will be run by the Archewell foundation, the charity they set up in their son's name to protect his privacy. And they've stipulated that they will be honoring individuals and organizations that they feel have championed their own values in areas including Charitable service, Education, Science, Literature, Racial Justice, Gender equity, Environmental stewardship, Youth empowerment, Health and Mental Health.

Matt Sayles via The Duke and Duchess of Sussex The Duke and Duchess of Sussex honored Princess Diana by planting her favorite flower, the forget-me-not, on the anniversary of her death.  Prince Harry and Meghan Markle visited the Preschool Learning Center in Los Angeles on Monday, where they spent the morning planting seeds with the children.  The learning center, with Assistance League of LA, provides support to low income families in the area.  Harry's mother died 23 years ago — on August 31, 1997 — from injuries sustained after a car crash in Paris.  Forget-me-nots were often planted in the Sunken Gardens in the grounds of Kensington Palace, Diana's official residence during her time as a member of the royal family.

    The Queen and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have sent public well-wishes to the Duchess of Sussex on her 39th birthday.  The official Royal Family Instagram account this morning posted a photograph of the Queen, 94, and Meghan Markle on their first joint royal engagement two years ago alongside the message: 'Wishing The Duchess of Sussex a very happy birthday!'  It was followed shortly afterwards by posts from Kate and William's Kensington Palace account and the Clarence House account, run by the household staff of Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall.  The messages come as the Royal Family reels from the bombshell claims made in the Sussexes' biography Finding Freedom, released next week, which lays bare a rift between the couple and senior members of The Firm.  The book, written by Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durant, claims relations between the Sussexes and the Cambridges grew so bitter that by March, when Harry and Meghan officially hung up their HRH titles, the couples were barely speaking.

Yet the more they complain, as the rest of the world struggles with the very real hell of the worst pandemic for 100 years, the more they expose themselves as a pair of appallingly bitter, staggeringly self-obsessed, utterly deluded, and woefully tone-deaf...
