Richard Eden, the Daily Mail's diary editor said the Duke and Duchess of Sussex should "stay away" from the Jubillee to avoid taking attention away from the Queen.

He told the Mail's talk show, Palace Confidential: "I really get the impression that Harry and Meghan are loving all the speculation about whether they’ll come for the Jubilee or not. What should be the wonderful celebrations of the Queen’s amazing long reign, instead it’s sort of becoming this saga or will-they-won’t-they-come?"

Richard Kay, the Daily Mail's editor at Large, added that it is "tragic" that the Queen has to deal with "bitter" rows with her own grandchildren.

He said: "I think it’s tragic for her. The last thing she wants is these ongoing, bitter rows with her own grandchildren and the family.

"They had so much trouble in the 1990s which they had hoped they had put behind them, but this is somehow even worse and it must be enormously difficult for her and quite despairing."

Princess Anne knows the 'pressure' Kate faces as younger royal

Princess Anne is aware of the pressure Kate faces as a young royal. 

Princess Anne and Kate attended their first royal engagement as a duo earlier this week, a request which is thought to have come from the Queen herself. 

Anne once told the ITV film Anne: The Princess Royal at 70: "The pressure that is applied to the younger members of the family, it's always worse.

"That's what the media is interested in. That's hard sometimes to deal with.

“But there was no social media in my day, and it's probably made it more difficult."

Princess Diana 'deserves sympathy' despite ‘deviant’ and 'very flawed personality'

Princess Diana "deserved sympathy" despite her "flawed personality" as she was a sufferer of mental illness royal biographer Howard Hodgson told Express.co.uk.

Mr Hodgson, who wrote the book ‘Charles: The Man Who Would Be King’ said: “There was really no nice Princess Diana. 

“There was either a very deviant personality, a very flawed personality, or there was somebody who was mentally unwell.” 

“Diana was definitely somebody who did suffer from borderline personality disorder which meant that she wasn’t always totally responsible for her actions. 

“It’s not the sort of mental illness that can be cured by the taking of various drugs. 

“My book comes to the conclusion that you should give Diana the benefit of the doubt and say that she was actually somebody who was unwell.”

Princess Diana was 'smart and drama-free mother'

Princess Diana was a "smart and drama free mother", according to a body language expert. 

Analysing a recently surfaced clip of Diana telling off a sulking Prince William in 1986, Judi James said: "There are ongoing PR attempts to smear Diana by painting her as a ‘flawed’ and worse.

“But this cute clip of her acting like a very calm, caring but also smart and drama-free mother could be described as a timely reminder of the woman a whole generation fell in love with back in the day."

Caribbean tours branded an 'embarrassment'

The recent Caribbean tours of William and Kate and Sophie Wessex and Prince Edward have been branded an "embarrassment" by political activist and commentator Dr Shola Mos-Shogbamimu.

Dr Mos-Shogbamimu said that Royal tours, especially those in Caribbean nations, should aim to address issues raised by activists - such as reparations for slavery. 

However, she claimed that the Royals' recent tours did not do this. 

She said: "If the purpose of the trip is what we've seen which is basically a continuation of representing the legacy of the British Empire, then absolutely yes these tours should just end.

"Quite frankly these royal tours that we've seen to date are an embarrassment to the British monarchy.

"However if the royal tour was one that speaks to what many of these Afro-Caribbean nations are seeking to address, which is truth, reconciliation and justice, then you need to get on board those tours and make them work."

Why the Queen never wore Kate Middleton's wedding tiara publicly

The Queen lent Kate Middleton the tiara she wore for her wedding, 11 years ago today - but why has the Queen never worn this particular tiara publicly?

Kate Beavis, owner of the contemporary wedding blog Magpie Wedding, has theorised why the Queen may never have worn the tiara in public. 

She told Express.co.uk:“The Cartier Halo Tiara was made in 1936 for the Queen Mother but when handed down it was not worn by our Queen - some say because it wasn't grand enough, and others that it was felt to be too showy when she received it during the war for her 18th birthday in 1944."
