    Princess Diana’s brother Earl Spencer has slammed the BBC’s “unbelievable” decision to clear itself over the rehiring of Martin Bashir.

    A damning inquiry last month revealed “rogue reporter” Bashir forged bank statements to win the vulnerable princess’s trust and convince her to sit down for a world exclusive Panorama interview in 1995.

    Royal expert, Ingrid Seward, has lashed out at Harry following the Royals rough patch.

    "Prince Harry is a former military man. He understands about Queen and Country and has sworn allegiance to his sovereign.

    "Why then does he continue to stab the institution the Queen represents in the back?

    "He does not appear to grasp that the Queen and the firm are basically the same thing.

    THE QUEEN IS RIGHT TO CORRECT PRINCE HARRY WHEN HE CROSSES THE LINE SAYS JANE MOORE 

    This time it’s about whether Prince Harry actually sought his grandmother’s permission to name his newborn daughter after her childhood moniker, or whether he simply told her of his and Meghan’s intention and Her Majesty felt it was a non-negotiable, done deal.

    When the BBC’s royal correspondent Jonny Dymond reported a Palace source saying The Queen was told, not asked, the Sussexes once again let their attack dogs off the leash to threaten legal action.

    But, interestingly, the national broadcaster stuck to its guns and no one at the Palace has refuted the story either.

    Now, in a significant move away from the old “never complain, never explain” mantra, it is claimed that our monarch will “no longer remain silent” in the face of “mistruths” about her family.

    MEGHAN THOUGHT ABOUT PRINCESS DIANA TO BURY SUICIDAL THOUGHTS 

    In her recent Oprah interview, aired in March, Meghan Markle revealed her battles with mental health before making the decision to step down as senior Royals with husband Prince Harry, 36.

    The pregnant mum-of-one explained she was struggling with suicidal thoughts while pregnant with Archie but claimed her attempts to get help from the Palace fell on deaf ears.

    The Duke of Sussex told Oprah in a new doc, The Me You Can’t See, that what stopped his wife from giving in to suicide was how “unfair” it would be to him after the death of his mum Princess Diana in 1997.

    He said: “The thing that stopped her from seeing it through was how unfair it would be on me after everything that had happened to my mum and to now be put in a position of losing another woman in my life, with a baby inside of her, our baby.

    “The scariest thing for her was her clarity of thought. She hadn’t ‘lost it.’ … She was completely sane. Yet in the quiet of night, these thoughts woke her up.”

    There are questions over whether Meghan Markle will accompany Prince Harry to the unveiling of the Princess Diana statue on July 1.

    It has been unclear whether Meghan would make the 5,000-mile trip to London so soon after giving birth as she is still on maternity leave.

    One royal expert said she "very much doubts" she would be at the ceremony.

    But one insider told US site Radar Online: "Meghan knows how hard it was to attend his grandfather’s funeral alone and doesn’t want that to happen again.

    Lilibet 'Lili' Diana Mountbatten-Windsor was born at 11.40am at a Santa Barbara hospital on Friday.

    HARRY & MEG'S ROYAL FAMILY TIES HAVE WORSENED SINCE PRINCE PHILIP'S DEATH, CLAIMS INSIDER

    The Sun understands Meghan will stay in the US with Archie and baby Lili instead of making the 5,000-mile trip from California.

    The confirmation comes after royal sources told a US media site Radar Online she would come back to support her husband as family relations have "worsened" since Prince Philip's funeral.

    They also said the Queen would be delighted to see her grandsons standing with their wives at the poignant event.

    The statue is being unveiled at Kensington Palace on July 1 – on what would have been Diana's 60th birthday – but there is much debate over whether Harry will even be able to attend.

    It would be the first time he's seen brother William face-to-face since their meeting after his grandfather's funeral.

    EXPLAINED: BABY LILIBET IS EIGHTH IN LINE TO THE ROYAL THRONE

    Baby Lilbet is the Queen's 11th great-grandchild, joining her big brother Archie, two, and Prince William and Kate Middleton's brood George, Charlotte and Louis in the line of succession.

    As it stands, Lilibet is eighth in line to the throne and sits behind her father Prince Harry, who is sixth in line, and her sibling Archie, who falls just behind Harry in seventh.

    Also ahead of Lilibet is Prince William, who is second in line after Prince Charles, and his kids George, Charlotte and Louis, who are third, fourth and fifth in line to the throne respectively.

    Lilibet – whose middle name Diana is a sweet nod to Harry's late mother the Princess of Wales – is not entitled, at this stage, to be an HRH nor a princess due to rules set out more than 100 years ago by George V.

    She can, however, become a Lady – although Harry and Meghan will likely style their second-born a Miss, as they did with Master Archie, using the surname Mountbatten-Windsor.

    MEGHAN KEEPS DISTANCE 

    With rising tensions inside the Royal Family, it's not looking likely Meghan will make her return to London for Princess Diana's statue unveiling next month, according to a royal expert who claimed Prince Harry's wife was not popular with the royals or the British public.

    Royal author Phil Dampier said he would not be surprised if she doesn't make an appearance for "some time". He added the birth of her daughter provides Meghan with the "perfect excuse" not to attend the statue unveiling at Kensington Palace on July 1.

    Phil told The Sun: "It wouldn’t surprise me if we don’t see Meghan for some time

    “I don’t think she is popular with the royals or the public in the UK anymore and I think she will prefer to stay in California with her two young children.

    “The birth of Lilibet gives her a perfect excuse not to come.

    “It may be seen as a swipe at the Royal Family, but it will just be added to an already long list."

    Royal Ascot racegoers were delighted at the sight of the royal family attend the famous meet for the second day running.

    The Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall were joined in the royal box by the Earl and Countess of Wessex and the Princess Royal.

    Betting on the colour of the Queen's hat is popular among punters and Rupert Adams says his company William Hill has made blue its favourite with odds of 3-1, followed by yellow 9-2, green 5-1 and purple 6-1.

    He said: "We still hope to see the Queen later this week and expect her to opt for blue!"

    Camilla also confessed how much she enjoys the races, telling ITV Racing she has two horses in training.

    The duchess said: "We all know horses don't we, we start off thinking this is the one – this is the one that's going to go on, you know, if it's the flat it's going to go on and win the Derby, if it's jumping it's definitely going to win the Gold Cup.

    "So you all start with great hope, as it goes on hope is shattered bit by bit."
