Meghan Markle Won’t Even Let Prince Harry Go Hunting

As has been well documented many times on this website and around the celebrity gossip universe, Meghan Markle just loves to break Royal Protocol.

This is someone who tries to dictate her own wardrobe on her wedding day… who has often shown off her bare shoulders in public… and who had the audacity to wear dark nail polish last week.

But this story is not actually about the Duchess of Sussex defying her very famous loved ones and their traditions once again.

Nope, it’s a story about how she isn’t allowing her husband partake in one of these long-running traditions.

You see, Markle and Prince Harry will be spending Christmas with rumored rivals Prince William and Kate Middleton.

(Kensington Palace pretty much ordered this awkward arrangement to take place in order to quell chatter that the quarter does not get along in any way, shape or form.)

For years and years, Harry would go out on Boxing Day morning with his sibling and other relatives to go pheasant shooting — but here’s the thing:

Markle hates hunting. She hates it with a passion. She’s a big animal lover.

As a result, insiders tell The Daily Mail that Markle has put her gorgeous foot down and will not allow Harry to take part in an activity that he’s done with his relatives for two decades.

“‘Harry’s always loved hunting and it has provided [him and William] with a great chance to bond as brothers,” this Daily Mail source alleges, adding:

“But now it looks like Harry’s shooting days are over. It’s the latest point of contention between the Princess.”

Meghan’s aversion to hunting initally caused issues last year, back when Harry reportedly took part in a wild boar hunt in Germany.

This stirred up a bit of tension between the stars and was the reason why Harry then bowed out of a grouse hunt at Balmoral three months ago.

It’s hard not to admire Markle’s stance, of course.

This has long been a passion of hers and it really does silly to just go out and shoot dead poor, innocent birds, doesn’t it?

As a counter argument, however, Markle’s reputation is in tatters at the moment.

She is being blamed for treating staff members poorly and for feuding with Middleton and of just being a spoiled, entitled American all around.

All this anti-hunting stance has done is once again create negative headlines about her on the Internet.

Just look at what we wrote up above!

Perhaps it would have been in Meghan’s better interest to just suck it up this one time and to let Harry get out there with William and spray some bullets into a bunch of birds.

It would have been viewed as an olive branch of some kind, as a way for Markle to prove that she’s flexible and does not need to always have her way.

After all, Harry and her are supposedly at war with William and Kate.

If some birds need to die in order for peace to be achieved, so be it, right?

Samantha Markle Disses Harry and Meghan for "Sad," Revealing Christmas Card

When most of the free world took a glimpse at Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s first-ever Christmas card, they smiled in delight.

They stood up and cheered. They nodded in recognition of true, fairy tale-like love.

But not Samantha Markle.

She experienced none of these emotions and took none of these actions upon glancing at the featured holiday image posted here:

“The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are delighted to share a new photograph from their Wedding Reception at Frogmore House on 19th May,â€� Kensington Palace Tweeted as a caption to this photo late last week, adding:

“The photograph, which features on Their Royal Highnesses’ Christmas card, was taken by photographer Chris Allerton.”

It’s lovely, right?

It clearly depicts Harry and Meghan peering into the future, feeling in that moment as if there’s no one else in the entire world but each other, right?

Wrong, Samantha has written in response.

“Interesting that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have their backs turned,” she Tweeted shortly after the picture was released, asking:

“Is this towards the world or just the Ragland and Markle family? It’s a bit sad. Face the Christmas spirit.”

sam says

We must say:

This is pretty desperate on Samantha’s part.

As loyal ceebrity gossip followers know by now, she has spent the last year or so bashing her half-sister at every opportunity

Yes, Samantha is 17 years older than Meghan and, no, the two did not share a household growing up and they barely know each other.

But this hasn’t stopped Samantha from slamming Meghan as phony and ungrateful and rude to her loved ones throughout the entire time she’s been dating Prince Harry.

At least past attacks felt creative and original, though.

Heck, she once referred to Meghan as the DuchASS.

Another time, she insinuated that Markle wanted to murder puppies.

Here, however, the best Samantha can muster is to somehow argue that Meghan and Harry using a photograph of their backs is disrespectful to the birthday of Jesus Christ and all it stands for?

That’s pretty lame and quite a stretch.

“It’s incredibly rude to turn your back in a Christmas photo that is meant to share warmth and good wishes with the world,” Samantha added on Twitter, doubling down on this line of attack.

“Those that criticize me for pointing out the truth, need to get that brown stuff off their noses. I hear the worlds smallest violin playing,” she also wrote.

Apparently content with this theme, evidently thinking that she was really jabbing Meghan and Harry hard, Samantha continued on Saturday as follows:

“turn your backs to people on a Christmas card is rude. if you want to be private you don’t do it on a Christmas card but the world sees. That’s like saying merry Christmas look at my butt.”

Sure. Yes. That’s exactly what this is like.

Samantha has criticitized Meghan for many reasons, but the main beef has been with the expecting mother’s treatment of their shared father, Thomas Markle.

Ever since Thomas skipped the Royal Wedding in May, Samantha has been banging the same drum hard, saying he doesn’t deserve to be cut out of his daughter’s life.

And Thomas feels the same way.

Over the weekend, he told The Daily Mail that there’s a “wall of silence” between himself and the Royal Family.

He blames Prince Harry and his child for this, telling the British publication:

“If she would just speak to me, things could be different.”

And if Thomas and Samantha didn’t suck so much, we think maybe she would.

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry Unveil First-Ever Christmas Card, Take on William and Kate

Meghan Markle, Prince Harry, Kate Middleton and Prince William are preparing for a very awkward Christmas.

And we’re here to make it even more tension-filled!

As you have very likely heard by now, there’s an alleged feud between Markle and Middleton.

There’s also an alleged feud between Harry and William over how each feels about the former’s new wife.

Acutely aware of the perception around the globe about these four members of the Royal Family, Kensington Palace has basically ordered the quarter to spend the holidays together.

According to multiple outlets, Kate and William were planning on being with the Middletons on December 25 — until higher-ups stepped in and decided otherwise.

Now, both couples will be in London for the birthday of Jesus Christ, as the world prepares to analyze each and every photo of them on their way to church that morning.

Before that opportunity, arises, however, the tandems have given fans two more photos to analyze.

The first is a brand new snapshot from Markle and Harry’s wedding, unveiled on Friday morning for the first time because it will be the lead picture of their inaugural Christmas card.

We’ve posted it above.

“The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are delighted to share a new photograph from their Wedding Reception at Frogmore House on 19th May,â€� Kensington Palace captioned the image on Twitter, adding:

“The photograph, which features on Their Royal Highnesses’ Christmas card, was taken by photographer Chris Allerton.”

Very pretty, right?

But is it prettier than the one also just released by Kate and William?

These parents of three just came out with their own Christmas card photograph, one that depicts Middleton and her Prince cuddled up closely with their children:

Prince George, 5, Princess Charlotte, 3, and Prince Louis, 8 months.

The holiday portrait was taken in early fall at the pair’s country home in Norfolk and it marks little Louis’ Christmas card debut.

You can compare it here to the 2017 version of the famous family:

During a walkabout late last month, Middleton revealed how her kids were getting ready for the holiday.

“The [kids] are doing well, thank you,” she told fans, adding of her brood:

“Getting excited for Christmas time because they’ve started all their Christmas songs and Christmas trees are going up and stuff.”

She didn’t really address how much she supposedly hates Middleton.

In an attempt to rile up everyone associated with this reported rivalry, though, we figured we’d pit Meghan and Harry’s card against William and Kate’s card.

Prince Harry to Prince William: How Dare You Say That About Meghan Markle?!?

Brothers in arms?

When it comes to Prince Harry and Prince William these days, it’s more like… two brothers who are up in arms.

With each other. Over the existence of Meghan Markle.

Indeed, as you have very likely heard by now, the Duchess of Sussex is allegedly stirring up trouble wherever she goes these days, possibly because she’s a spoiled diva but maybe because she’s simply American.

Markle is reportedly engaged in a feud with Kate Middleton and has even caused Queen Elizabeth to furrow her all-important brow over some of Meghan’s fashion decisions of late.

Now, however, comes a report that claims Markle is also responsible for a riff between Harry and William.

And it’s all based on how the latter feels about the former’s relatively new wif.e

A source tells Entertainment Tonight that “tension does still exist” between the siblings after the Duke of Cambridge voiced his “concerns” about Markle way back she first started dating his sibling.

It’s unclear exactly why William objected to Markle at that time, although we did hear at some point that he never comprehended the popularity of her USA Network drama Suits.

According to this ET insder, Harry and William have “not mended completely” after their initial disagreement over Markle as Harry’s partner.

“Other members of the royal family also expressed their unease about their relationship,” adds the source. “But Harry was steadfast and absolutely besotted with Meghan.”

Besotted. We love British parlance, don’t you?

Harry and Meghan, of course, are expecting their first child this spring.

But that news has been overshadowed over the past month or so with talk that they no longer get along with Middleton and William.

The parents-to-be will soon be moving out of Kensington Palace and taking up residence at Frogmore Cottage at Windsor Castle, presumably because they don’t want to reside near their rivals any longer.

“The move to Windsor will allow them to raise their children away from the prying eyes of the paparazzi,” another ET source explains, adding that William did also play a role in this decision;

“Naturally, Harry doesn’t want to live in his brother’s shadow for the rest of his life.

“Their lives are also moving in different directions as William prepares to be king one day.”

As various staffers walk out on Markle, and chatter grows stronger by the day that she really is difficult to work for, many close to the Monarch are wondering why Harry doesn’t do a better job of keeping his wife in line.

This is a sexist and antiquated argument, of course.

And it’s also a fruitless one, writes Us Weekly.

“It has put pressure on her relationship with Harry. He’s very frustrated with how little can be done,â€� alleges this tabloid, continuing:

“Keeping her away from the negativity and harm has been hard for him. It’s been his purpose in their relationship to keep her away from the negativity.”

Just a couple months ago, no one would have expected a magazine cover such as the one above to be printed.

Markle was widely embraced by the public and accepted by Harry’s loved ones.

However, a lot can change in a short period of time and Kensington Palace doesn’t seem certain how to handle the ongoing chaos among its young and attractive members.

Meghan Markle: The Sussex-iest Pics of the Duchess EVER!!!

Earlier this year, Meghan Markle married Prince Harry in front of a massive international TV audience. Maybe you heard.

The 37-year-old former actress is the envy of millions of women these days, but the road to royalty wasn’t an easy one.

She’s spent most of her adult life paying her dues in Hollywood, a.k.a. taking on projects she’d probably prefer to forget.

Fortunately for us, many of those acting and modeling gigs Markle took on to pay the bills yielded unforgettable images.

Ones that make Harry the envy of millions as well.

Not convinced? Check out the pics below for some of Meg’s career highlights … before becoming a Duchess of course.

1. Meghan at Age 22

Meghan at age 22
This photo of Meghan when she was a 22-year-old aspiring model has been making the rounds online lately. Obviously, she looked great then, but is it us, or has she only gotten hotter with age?

2. The Role Suits Her

Meghan markle sexy
You probably already know that Meghan made a name for herself as an actress on the USA Network legal drama Suits. But if you never watched the show, you may not realize how risqué some of her scenes were.

3. Meghan as Rachel

Meghan markle as rachel zane
Meghan frequently delivered the corporate hotness playing a paralegal on the long-running series. Of course, the show sometimes followed her out of the boardroom, as well…

4. Showing Some Leg

Meghan markle in pajamas
Yes, Suits frequently delved into Meghan’s character’s sex life. And for that, we are eternally grateful.

5. Topless Meg

Meg occasionally stripped down for her role. The show was on basic cable, so she never went fully nude, but still … a lot more skin than we’re accustomed to seeing from royals.

6. Nude on Suits

At one point, Meghan did strip down entirely. She was covered by a blanket, but she didn’t skimp on the side-nudity.
