Queen 'lawyers up' against Harry and Meghan's repeated attacks
Queen Elizabeth has finally decided "enough is enough" when it comes to grandson Prince Harry and his wife, Meghan Markle. Allegedly planning a legal fightback against the two over their comments about the royal family, the Queen is getting "lawyered up" to fight back their "repeated attacks", sources have claimed.
News of the Queen's legal approach arrives shortly after Harry announced he was going to release a memoir. The social media flak against Harry and Meghan continues to be rampant ever since their all explosive interview with Oprah Winfrey that had accused members of the royal family of racism, and lack of action in the wake of what the two dubbed incessant bullying from British tabloids. And even though since the interview, Harry has flown home twice to attend Prince Philip's funeral, and the unveiling of his mother, Diana's statue on her 60th anniversary, looks like family ties are not mending.

Reports of the Queen acquiring legal counsel against Harry and Meghan comes from the Daily Star. Sources told the publication: “(The Queen is) getting lawyered up. Harry and Meghan will be made aware and know repeated attacks will not be tolerated. There is a limit to how much will be accepted and the Queen and Royal Family can only be pushed so far. The feeling, coming right from the top, is that enough is enough.”
The timing of the legal action aligns with Harry announcing his "accurate and wholly truthful” memoir that is expected to unleash several bombshells. More details surrounding who made the racist comments about the skin colour of then-unborn Prince Archie could also emerge from the book. The publication also adds that Harry and Meghan's reason to name their second child Lilibet, as well as Harry's take on mental health could also be elaborated on in the memoir. The most highly anticipated among all information is perhaps a full detailing of what went on in the Sandringham meetings after Megxit, the outlet claims.
But the Queen is also making her side of the story clear by allegedly sending legal notices to publishers at Penguin Random House ahead of Harry's memoir. Alleging that there will be legal action from the royals in case of a tantalizing leak of private information, the source adds: “The royals’ legal team are speaking to firms with expertise in libel and privacy. If someone were named in the book and accused of something directly that could be a libel and also infringe their rights to a private family life. It would be ironic if Harry and Meghan were accused of breaching privacy given their pronouncements on the subject.”
The insider also added that the royal family's legal team could potentially contact the publishers of Harry's book for advance intimation of its contents. They are to also be allowed a chance to respond to any allegations made in the book as well.
