THE Duke and Duchess of Sussex are reportedly keen to visit the Queen in the coming months to introduce their daughter Lilibet to her great-grandmother.

The Sun on Sunday today revealed the Sussexes had now offered to fly into London to see the Queen, which will be the Duchess' first trip to the UK since Megxit.

And a source has since said it is unclear if the couple will spend Christmas with the Queen after not spending the past two celebrations apart.

The Sussexes did not attend Christmas last year due to the coronavirus pandemic. And in 2019, they spent Christmas in Canada instead of with the Royal Family.   

Moreover, a damning poll has revealed Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's popularity with Brits has plunged to a record low.

According to a YouGov survey, only 26 per cent of Brits "favour" Meghan while 65 per cent dislike her. For Harry, just 34 per cent say they like him compared to 59 per cent who don't, taking the prince's net favourability rating to -25 per cent.

PRINCE HARRY FAMOUSLY BROKE DOWN ON STAGE DURING THE 2019 WELLCHILD AWARDS

Prince Harry famously broke down on stage during the 2019 WellChild awards while talking about becoming a father with his wife Meghan Markle.

Harry said: "Last year when my wife and I attended we knew we were expecting our first child. No one else did at the time but we did.

"I remember squeezing Meghan's hand so tight during the awards and both of us were thinking about what it would be like to be parents one day and what it would be like to do everything we could to protect our child should they be born with immediate challenges or become unwell over time.

"Now as a parent it pulls on my heartstrings more than I could have ever known."

GRACE JONES JOKES SHE ‘COULDN’T HANDLE PRINCE HARRY’ AS SHE JETS INTO UK FOR WELLCHILD EVENT

The I Need a Man singer, 73, is set to perform at the exclusive five star Landmark Hotel in central London on Sept 17th in an all star bash.

As well as being supported by best friends Kate Moss and Naomi Campbell, the dinner will also play host to some of the biggest names in showbiz.

Grace Jones' team told The Sun: "Grace loves a full English, she joked couldn't managed a whole Harry though and is ecstatic to be performing at next week's event."

The event is in conjunction with London Fashion Week where Grace will return to the catwalk as part of the This is ICON event.

MORE ON THE SURPRISINGLY NORMAL LIFE KATE MIDDLETON

We previously revealed how Kate is preparing the Cambridge kids to start school.

We shared how thrifty Kate Middleton’s surprisingly ‘normal’ UK summer holiday plans revealed – and it’s NOT ‘luxurious’.

Here are all the times Kate has dressed like a Disney princess – and she’s got Prince William in on the action too.

KATE & WILLIAM KEEN FOR THEIR KIDS TO HAVE AS 'NORMAL' A CHILDHOOD AS POSSIBLE'

Prince William and Kate's children Prince George, 8, and Princess Charlotte, 6, attend Thomas's Battersea in south London, where they will be starting years 4 and 2 respectively.

But despite being fourth in the line of succession to the British throne, Charlotte is treated just like any other child at school.

Kate and William are keen for their kids to have as "normal" a childhood as possible for fully support this.

In order to make sure Charlotte fits in with the other children, she goes by another name with her classmates.

The royal six-year-old's full name is Charlotte Elizabeth Diana, while her title is Her Royal Highness Princess Charlotte of Cambridge.

THE CROWN PRODUCERS REVEAL THE TWO UNKNOWN CHILD STARS TO PLAY PRINCE WILLIAM AND PRINCE HARRY IN NEW SERIES

Seven-year-old Teddy Rawley will play the young royal, while Timothee Sambor, 11, will appear as his older brother Prince William.

A source said: “Netflix bosses wanted to make sure they had the right actors for the role given the young royals are so well known and were in the public eye so much at that age.

“They didn’t rush it and found Teddy and Timothee who they hope will be warmly received. They’re about to become household names in their own right.”

We told back in June how bosses on the Netflix series had considered dying a child’s hair so they could find someone appropriate for the role of runaway royal Harry.

Ginger-haired people are in decline, as a recessive gene has to be passed on by both parents. Harry will be aged six to 13 in the next series.

Harry was previously portrayed by six-year-old Arran Tinker, who had strawberry blonde hair but only appeared briefly.

Elizabeth Debicki, 31, takes over from Emma Corrin, 25, to play Diana and was seen this week alongside the young actors.

KATE MIDDLETON & PRINCE WILLIAM REVEAL ‘PARTICULAR FOCUS’ ON IMPROVING DIVERSITY AT ROYAL FOUNDATION AFTER RACISM CLAIMS

PRINCE William and Kate Middleton’s Royal Foundation have revealed they are making a “particular focus” on improving diversity.

The revelation comes after Meghan Markle claimed she had faced racism in the Firm before she quit the Royal Family.

The Duchess of Sussex, together with her husband Prince Harry, told Oprah a family member had expressed concern over “how dark” their son Archie’s skin may be.

But Wills hit back after the interview, telling reports his family was “very much not racist”.

And the 39-year-old seems to be going the extra mile to make it known through his charity.

PRINCESS CHARLOTTE USES A DIFFERENT ‘NORMAL’ NAME AT SCHOOL TO HELP HER BLEND IN

Even the royal children aren’t exempt from the excitement and anticipation of heading back to the classroom.

Kate and William are keen for their kids to have as “normal” a childhood as possible for fully support this.

In order to make sure Charlotte fits in with the other children, she goes by another name with her classmates.

The royal six-year-old’s full name is Charlotte Elizabeth Diana, while her title is Her Royal Highness Princess Charlotte of Cambridge.

But no kiddy is going to bother with all that when they’re playing tag in the playground.

So she, like George before her, simply goes by the name Charlotte Cambridge, taking her parents’ title as her last name.

KATE MIDDLETON ONCE POPPED INTO A PUB WITH PRINCESS CHARLOTTE FOR A VERY RELATABLE REASON

Stunned pub goers watched Prince William‘s wife and daughter pull up in a Range Rover, to use the facilities.

Kate and Charlotte, then three, are said to have walked hand-in-hand into The Phoenix in Stockwell, South London, as they popped in for a wee.

When it happened, in December 2018, pub local Maggie McKinney told the Mail Online: “The little kiddie just trotted in with her mum, went to the toilet and then trotted out.

“They could not have been in the pub for more than ten minutes.

“They seem very nice, totally normal. Princess Kate was holding her daughter’s hand. Princess Charlotte was just any other little girl.”

It was reported a staff member came in ahead of the Royals, to ask if they could use the loo.

WHAT DOES THE LAWSUIT AGAINST ANDREW SAY?

Virgina Giuffre's lawsuit says she was "forced to have sexual intercourse with Prince Andrew against her will" and lists offences including "rape in the first degree".

The Prince vehemently denies her claim.

The civil suit will be heard via a telephone conference in New York next on Monday.

Andrew and his lawyers have refused to comment on the case.

PAPERS HAVE NOT YET BEEN SERVED ON ANDREW DESPITE 'MULTIPLE ATTEMPTS'

The papers have not yet been served on Andrew or his lawyers despite "multiple attempts" in the past two weeks at Royal Lodge, Windsor.

He is now set to remain in the safety of the Queen's private estate when his sex abuse case is heard on Monday.

An insider said: "Andrew was going stir-crazy inside Royal Lodge for the past few weeks. He wasn't going horse riding and couldn't step outside because of attempts to serve him with the legal papers.

"He knows he is far safer up at Balmoral on the Queen's estate.

"Andrew is always described as the Queen's favourite son but she is meant to be on holiday at Balmoral.

"With Andrew and everything that is happening with Charles and the investigation into cash for honours she must be wondering when she will get any peace and quiet."

PRINCE ANDREW BOLTS FOR BALMORAL IN BID TO AVOID BEING SERVED SEX ASSAULT PAPERS

PRINCE Andrew has made a bolt for the safety of Balmoral and the Queen to avoid “multiple attempts” to serve sex assault legal papers at his Windsor mansion.

The scandal-hit Duke of York was pictured with ex-wife Sarah Ferguson yesterday fleeing Royal Lodge where he had been holed up refusing to go outside or go horse riding.

Andrew, 61, has rejected several attempts over the past fortnight by US lawyers to serve legal papers on his doorstep as security guards turned them away.

He was driven with Fergie, 61, yesterday on a 500-mile dash to the Queen's 50,000 acre estate in Scotland where she is on holiday.

It comes as he has failed to respond to Jeffrey Epstein's former sex slave Virginia Giuffre lawsuit in New York a month ago accusing him of "rape in the first degree".

PRINCE HARRY CLASHES WITH CHARLES IN NEW US FILM

The film also sees Harry arguing with his father, Prince Charles, after he refuses to meet with his son to discuss his concerns.

The drama – which was broadcast in the US on Monday – explores the “real details” behind the decision that eventually drove the couple to leave their royal life behind.

The two previous films were Harry & Meghan: A Royal Romance and Harry & Meghan: Becoming Royal.

In another shocking scene, Meghan is seen on the ground dying in an overturned car after a crash with paparazzi all around her.

The moment echoes the real life death of Harry’s mother Princess Diana, but in the film, the horrifying scene turns out to be a nightmare as Harry wakes up and is relieved to see his wife and son are OK.

QUEEN’S ‘FAVOURITE GRANDKID IS LOUISE – NOT WILL OR HARRY’ SAYS EXPERT

The 17-year-old daughter of Prince Edward and wife Sophie, Countess of Wessex, is said to be “adored” by the 95-year-old monarch. 

Royal author Phil Dampier told Fabulous: “Lady Louise is definitely a favourite of the Queen and I can see her having an important role in the royal family in the future.

“Her Majesty sees a lot of Edward and Sophie and their children at Windsor Castle as they live nearby at Bagshot Park.

“The Queen is very close to her mother Sophie and of course there has always been a bond between them because Sophie nearly died giving birth and Louise has had her eye condition to cope with.

“But she has grown into a lovely and intelligent young woman and the Queen adores her.”

Phil said that Her Majesty may even be closer to Lady Louise than she is to William, Harry, Eugenie and Beatrice.

PRINCE WILLIAM AND HARRY CLASH OVER MEGHAN MARKLE’S ‘HORRIFIC RACIST BULLYING’ IN SHOCKING SCENES FROM NEW ROYAL DRAMA

The scenes are part of the third Lifetime TV movie; Harry & Meghan: Escaping the Palace, and sees British actor Jordan Dean and American actress Sydney Morton take over the roles of Harry and Meghan.

Harry is seen confronting his older brother and heir to the throne and accusing him of not speaking out on racism.

The brothers are seen arguing in the gardens of Kensington Palace, with William telling his younger sibling: "What causes problems isn't colour, it's culture. Meghan an American. She acts more like a celebrity than a Royal."

But Harry furiously replies: "You need to bloody well make a statement with me decrying racism.  

"As future King, you need to push on this horrific bullying."

PRINCE CHARLES DENIES BACKING OFFER TO HELP SAUDI BILLIONAIRE GET KNIGHTHOOD AND BRITISH CITIZENSHIP

The Prince of Wales is coming under increasing pressure amid calls for a police investigation into claims made against his charity and his most trusted aide.

Michael Fawcett, 58, has temporarily stepped down after a leaked letter showed he was "willing and happy" to help a Saudi donor get a knighthood and British citizenship.

It came after Dr Mahfouz Marei Mubarak bin Mahfouz had coughed up £1.5million for Charles's charities.

Further leaked emails yesterday said to be from Mahfouz's paid advisor William Bortrick claim Charles was supportive of the offer of citizenship.

A spokesman for the Prince of Wales said Bortrick has never worked for the prince.

The spokesman said: "The Prince of Wales has no knowledge of the alleged offer of honours or British citizenship on the basis of donation to the charities and fully supports the investigation now underway by The Prince's Foundation."

MEGHAN MARKLE’S ENGAGEMENT DRESS DESIGNER ‘USED FASHION HOUSE TO FUND LAVISH LIFE INCLUDING £1,500 WEEKLY SALON TRIPS’

Tamara Ralph, 39, and her ex-business partner Michael Russo, 40, “personally enriched themselves” before their company Ralph & Russo collapsed, according to claims in documents released by the High Court.

Ms Ralph is being sued by the company’s administrators for £20.8 million in damages, but has denied any wrongdoing and is defending against the claim.

Ralph & Russo designed the Duchess of Sussex’s £56,000 engagement dress, as well as gowns for stars including Gwyneth Paltrow and Kylie Minogue.

Administrators for the company are now suing Ms Ralph, after telling the High Court that she “extracted substantial sums” when she was in “de facto control”.

In newly released legal papers, it is alleged that Ms Ralph spent more than £1,500 on “weekly blow-drys” at the Larry King hair salon in South Kensington, London – and the cost was charged to a company credit card, the Mail on Sunday reports.

Court documents also claim that Ms Ralph spent more than £300 of company cash on luxury lingerie at a store in Paris and £130 on an eyelash treatment.
It has also been claimed that Ms Ralph complained that her £225,000 salary was “extremely low” for someone in her position.

PRINCE WILLIAM IS PORTRAYED AS VILLAIN FOR ‘REFUSING TO SPEAK OUT ON RACISM’ IN CONTROVERSIAL NEW TV FILM ESCAPING THE PALACE

Harry&Meghan: Escaping the Palace will dramatise the Sussex’s ‘escape’ from the Royal Family after the birth of their son Archie.

The film will portray Prince William as the villain and will show him lecturing his older brother from not speaking out on racism.

Images show Prince Harry (played by Jordan Dean) and Prince William (played by Jordan Whalen) arguing in a Kensington Palace garden.

William tells Harry: “What causes problems isn’t colour, it’s culture. Meghan an American. She acts more like a celebrity than a Royal.”

“You need to bloody well make a statement with me decrying racism. As future King, you need to push on this horrific bullying.”

WILLIAM AND KATE GIVEN 'HIGHER ROLES DUE TO THEIR POPULARITY', SAYS EXPERT

Andrew Lownie, a royal expert, has claimed that Prince William and Kate Middleton have been given 'higher roles due to their popularity'.

He told the Express : "We’re in a period of what can be called a soft regency, in effect the Queen is standing back, not doing many roles.

"The roles that she is doing are being accompanied by Prince Charles, everyone is being prepared for Charles and Camilla.

“As a result, William and Kate, who seem to be very popular, are stepping into the position that Charles and Camilla had.

“Because they are, I would say almost more popular than Charles and Camilla, they’ve probably been given a higher role."

PRINCE CHARLES’S AIDE FACES PROBE OVER CLAIMS SAUDI BILLIONAIRE WAS PROMISED KNIGHTHOOD FOR DONATIONS

PRINCE Charles’s closest aide faces a police probe over claims that a Saudi billionaire was promised a knighthood and British passport in return for donations.

Michael Fawcett, 58, was willing to help Dr Mahfouz Marei Mubarak bin Mahfouz, a leaked letter shows.

Former valet Fawcett, who has twice quit royal jobs because of scandals, has now stepped down temporarily as the £95,000-a-year chief executive of Charles’s charity The Prince’s Foundation.

Ex-Lib Dem MP Norman Baker has written to Met Police chief Cressida Dick demanding an investigation into potential corruption.

Mahfouz has donated £1.5million, spent mostly on renovating two of Charles’s properties in Scotland, where parts of the grounds are named after the Saudi.

PIERS MORGAN CUTS HIS HEAD AS HE SMASHES INTO A WINDOW SAYING PRINCE HARRY WAS ‘SMIRKING’ AT HIM

PIERS Morgan has told of the moment he cut his head trying to leave the GQ Awards this week.

The 56-year-old former Good Morning Britain host explained he was left in “agony” after clattering into a window. He added that he turned to see an image of Prince Harry, who he has long criticised, on a nearby screen looking as if he were “smirking” at him.

Writing in his Mail on Sunday column he said he was feeling a “rush of exhilaration” in the wake of being cleared by Ofcom for criticising the Prince’s wife Meghan Markle.

He wrote: “Then, as I reached the exit, still staring proudly at my phone, I walked straight into a large plate-glass window, banging my head so hard and loudly against it that concerned security guards rushed over to check I was OK.

“I reeled back in agony, semi-concussed and with a cut opening above my right eye, only to see Harry’s massive head filling a nearby screen. He was smirking right at me.”
