It was a rough going for Princess Eugenie‘s father-in-law George Brooksbank while he was fighting the novel coronavirus.

According to The Telegraph, Brooksbank, 71, became ill in March after a trip to France and spent nine weeks in the hospital receiving treatment for the virus.

During his health scare, the outlet reported that Brooksbank’s family — including Eugenie, Queen Elizabeth‘s 30-year-old granddaughter — was told to “prepare for the worst.”

Brooksbank’s health improved after a tracheotomy, a feat he credits to health care workers at the Chelsea and Westminster Hospital in London and the Royal Brompton Hospital.

“The point I really want to get across is that I think the NHS is absolutely magnificent,” Brooksbank said, according to The Telegraph. “The way I was treated was incredible. Nothing was too much trouble and at no point did I get a sense of a shortage of doctors or nurses or any impression that the service was in any way overwhelmed.”

He added: “I certainly owe them my life.”

Brooksbank said he’s now feeling “absolutely fine.”

“I’m walking around at the moment on one stick and I hope to get free of that next week,” the retired chartered accountant explained. “My breathing is back to normal and I count myself extremely lucky. My thoughts now are with those still battling this disease and the NHS staff risking their own lives to help them.”

Brooksbank’s wife Nicola also contracted the virus, the outlet reported, but did not receive hospital treatment.

“Without doubt, they saved him, and we could not be more grateful,” Nicola said. “We were not able to see him throughout his treatment and more than once we were told to expect the worst.”

Germany’s Prince Otto of Hesse dead at 55 from motorcycle accident: reports

A German prince has died following a motorcycle accident, according to multiple reports released on Wednesday.

Prince Otto of Hesse crashed his Ducati Multistrada 1260 into the center guardrail on a highway in the state of Bavaria on Sunday, German newspaper Bild reported. The 55-year-old royal died of injuries he sustained from the accident. The exact cause of the accident is still unclear.

According to the outlet, the entrepreneur who previously owned several McDonald’s restaurants, is survived by his four children. Otto and his wife, Clara Blickhauser, called it quits in 2017.

“He was extremely hardworking, in some cases, he even fried the burgers himself,” a pal told the outlet. “He was a real biker… [and] wanted to see his girlfriend in Ticino.”

People magazine shared Otto was a motorcycle enthusiast and proudly displayed his passion on social media with a photo of a Ducati bike as his cover photo on Facebook, along with multiple images of him smiling on a motorcycle.

According to the outlet, Otto was the second son of William of Hesse-Philippsthal-Barchfeld, the current head of the Hesse-Philippsthal family. He was also a descendent of King Frederick William III of Prussia and King William I of the Netherlands.

His grandmother was Princess Marianne of Prussia, a member of the German royal dynasty, the House of Hohenzollern.

This is the second tragic death of a royal in recent weeks.

Princess Maria Galitzine, a descendent of the Habsburg dynasty, passed away at age 31 from a cardiac aneurysm earlier this month.

Katharine McPhee is dishing the relationship she and her husband David Foster share with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.

In a recent interview with Access, the 36-year-old singer was asked about her connection to Markle, after sharing a photo with her online.

“She went to a school called Immaculate Heart, as did I. She went there for middle school and high school, and I went there just for middle school,” said McPhee, noting that Markle, 38, was in high school during her years at Immaculate Heart.

“I did a couple shows with her and she was always put together and great,” recalled McPhee. “I was never really close friends with her.”

The singer said that while performing in the musical “Waitress” in London, she and Foster, 70, had an opportunity to speak with Markle and Harry, 35.

“My husband has a really, really beautiful relationship with Harry. They’re so cute, they’re like father and son,” revealed McPhee. “We just stay in touch with them. Meghan and I knew each other from childhood, but really, Harry and my husband are friends, so it’s really nice.”

The former “American Idol” contestant then discussed Harry and Markle’s recent move to Los Angeles.

“We just want them to end up wherever they feel safest and happiest,” she said. “David’s the resource guy. He knows all the places. He loves to help people. We just hope they end up somewhere where they feel like they can really settle down.”

McPhee’s post featuring Markle — shared on January 31 of 2019 — featured a selfie of the pair in their school days.

“Meghan and I did musicals together as kids,” McPhee wrote in the caption. “She grew up to be the Duchess of Sussex and I grew up to star on the West End, so same life if you ask me.”

Meghan Markle’s privacy lawsuit could lead to ‘big battle’ against her father in court, legal expert says

Get all the latest news on coronavirus and more delivered daily to your inbox.  Sign up here

Meghan Markle has waged a legal battle against a British newspaper for publishing a confidential letter she wrote to her father, Thomas Markle, at the height of their fractured relationship.

The United Kingdom’s High Court held its first hearing in the privacy lawsuit last month and a legal expert told Fox News the courtroom drama will become heightened if and when the Duchess and her estranged father testify against each other.

“The big battle is going to be between Meghan and her dad. That will be horrible for both of them, I suspect,” Amber Melville-Brown, head of media and reputation at legal firm Withers, told Fox News in an interview.

MEGHAN MARKLE, PRINCE HARRY ANNOUNCE THEY’LL NO LONGER COOPERATE WITH CERTAIN BRITISH TABLOIDS

Westlake Legal Group meghan-thomas-markle-getty-mega Meghan Markle's privacy lawsuit could lead to 'big battle' against her father in court, legal expert says Melissa Roberto fox-news/world/personalities/british-royals fox-news/topic/royals fox-news/person/prince-harry fox-news/entertainment/features/exclusive fox-news/entertainment/events/in-court fox-news/entertainment/celebrity-news/meghan-markle fox news fnc/entertainment fnc article a333303a-59e1-5116-9ea5-68ec3a14c762

“This case is all about if [Meghan] had a reasonable expectation of privacy. This means she’ll have to give evidence as to what she did with the letter and the impact [the publishing of it] had on her. The court won’t know how deeply distressing this is to her unless she gives evidence,” explained Melville-Brown, who is dually-certified in both the U.K. and New York.

It’s a bold move for the Duchess of Sussex, who, alongside husband Harry, has voiced disdain for the couple’s personal matters and recent departure from the royal family becoming tabloid fodder. Last month, the couple announced they will no longer cooperate with certain British tabloids.

She is suing the Mail on Sunday’s publisher, Associated Newspapers, for copyright infringement and misuse of private information for releasing contents of the letter. She also argues the publisher violated the U.K.’s data protection act.

The veteran privacy law specialist stressed the importance of protecting the privacy of clients but worries that Meghan Markle has already “overbaked the litigation cake” by taking news coverage too personally. Melville-Brown says that the lawsuit may lead to a win when it comes to copyright infringement, but it won’t put an end to the public’s interest in her private life.

“Meghan and Harry have made it personal for them. Harry already had a completely understandable hatred of the press because of the role he believes they played in his mother’s death. It’s clear the couple has gotten to the end of their tether, but making the case personal doesn’t mean they can win the war,” the expert said.

The expert warned that in order for Markle to succeed in her infringement and privacy case, she will have to be prepared “for all the publicity that comes with it.”

“When you bring an action for privacy invasion it’s sometimes a dangerous thing to do. Meghan and Harry have painted themselves into a corner because, as they’re attempting to gain control of their image and protect their privacy, she will also have to speak to it,” the expert furthered. “She is opening up the possibility of being cross-examined in open court.”

Markle had already suffered a setback in the case at the beginning of this month. The judge presiding over the case ruled in favor of Associated Newspapers by striking the Duchess’ arguments that the publication acted dishonestly and attempted to further rile up conflict between Markle and her dad.

Markle’s attorneys told Fox News in a statement that they were “surprised” by the judge’s May 1 verdict but vowed the case will continue in court with the arguments of copyright infringement and misuse of privacy.

Melville-Brown told us that Markle’s first loss in court was “more than a slight setback.”

“The first win in the war is an important one,” the expert said. “Psychologically, it’s very important as a litigator because it sets the tone for the case.”

If Markle wants to succeed in court, the expert said she will have to keep her arguments “very narrow” and leave her personal strife with the media out of it.

Prince Harry, Prince William are ‘back in touch,’ royal expert says

Things may be returning to normal for Prince Harry and his brother Prince William.

The two are rumored to have some tension between them since Harry chose to depart his royal duties with his wife Meghan Markle.

Now that Harry and his family have moved to Los Angeles to begin a new chapter, he and William are beginning to drift toward one another again, royal expert Katie Nicholl told Entertainment Tonight.

“There have been clearly some quite major rifts in that relationship, but things have got better and I know that William and Harry are in touch on the phone,” Nicholl said to the outlet “They have done video calls together, they have done a lot of family birthdays and I think with Prince Charles not being well, that really forced the brothers to pick up the phone and get back in touch.”

Harry and William’s father Charles, 71, recently fought off coronavirus, and between that health scare and Harry feeling homesick after his move, the royals felt it was the “right time” to reconnect, Nicoll told ET. Similarly, the tension between Markle, 38, and William’s wife Kate Middleton has simmered down.

“I think there is a sense of relief on both sides that this high drama is now a thing of the past,” Nicholl said. “The Sussexes are free to get on with their new lives [and] the Cambridges can get back to their old lives without all the upset and drama that was clearly a big deal behind the scenes. I think Kate and William miss Harry and Meghan to a degree, but certainly they miss Harry [being] around and part of their lives.”

Nicholl told ET that the royal clan likely reunited — albeit virtually — to celebrate the first birthday of Archie, Harry and Markle’s son.

“I am quite sure there would have been communication between the Cambridges and the Prince of Wales and I am told Harry picks up the phone regularly to his grandmother, the queen,” the expert noted. “They had that same call on her birthday. I’m sure there was a Zoom birthday call for Archie, too.”

Now that they’ve carved out a new life for themselves in Los Angeles, Nicholl said they’re enjoying themselves.

“They’ve settled into their lives in L.A. and this is the pathway for the future,” she said the outlet. “I’m told they feel a great sense of freedom and they’re really enjoying their new lives and [doing] things a bit more on their terms.”

Nicholl also said that for Harry, continuing the charity work he was rumored to have left behind has been helpful in combatting his homesickness.

“The idea that they would just go over to America and forget about these charities and organizations — particularly in Harry’s case [when] they’ve been a part of his life for so long — that’s absolutely not the case,” the expert told ET. “Harry keeps in touch with them regularly. He probably misses some of the people that he works with. He’s been patron of charities like WellChild for many, many years [so] he’s forged close friendships there, so yes — he’s missing his friends and picking up the phone for them.”

Due to the coronavirus outbreak, travel has been limited, so Harry and Meghan have become very well acquainted with video chatting and the like, which Nicholl said will be helpful to them in the future.

“[For] Meghan and Harry, this will be the way of the future,” she said. “They will not be jumping on a plane all the time to come to Britain. COVID has given them the opportunity to road test a way of working. These conference calls [are] a way for them to communicate and touch base with people back at home. I think COVID-19 has fast-tracked what was always going to be a future way of working for them, being so far away from many of their charities.”

The global pandemic hasn’t just affected Harry and Meghan’s work, however, but the entire royal family, with rumors circulating that Queen Elizabeth II will postpone her return from Windsor Castle to Buckingham Palace for the summer.

“That doesn’t mean we’re not going to see the queen carrying out duties that we’re used to at some point in the future,” Nicholl told ET. “It’s certainly her intention to continue working as much as she possibly can, but of course, no one knows how this pandemic is going to play out.”

Nicholl noted that the royals have been intentionally “letting their guard down” during the pandemic, allowing the public to see their home lives more than normal, with Prince William even participating in a comedy sketch on television.

“We are a nation in the middle of a crisis and it’s times like this we turn to the royal family for support, comfort and hope,” the expert told ET. “And, I think the Cambridges have really stepped up to the plate providing a nice dose of entertainment for us, and of course [it’s] a real treat for royal fans seeing so much of the Cambridge children.”

Nicholl said that “it’s uplifting” for people to be able to “see what the future of the royal family is going to look like” in getting more sneak peeks at the royal kiddos.

“The royal family has gone to great lengths not to be seen to be aloof or distant or unrelatable,” she said. “The queen is very aware that the role of the royal family during a national crisis like this is to be seen, to be able to support her people, and she’s having to do this through a digital platform and it’s quite incredible that at the age of 94, she’s embracing that.”

Prince Andrew and his ex-wife Sarah Ferguson reportedly owe millions on a home they purchased together that they have yet to pay off.

According to the French newspaper Le Temps, the former married couple purchased a ski chalet in Switzerland for a whopping $22.5 million back in 2014.

A deed of sale viewed by the outlet shows that the couple is expected to pay that amount off over time. Last December, the couple missed a payment of over $6 million, the report states.

Now, interest has upped the amount they owe to $8 million, according to the report.

A Buckingham Palace spokesperson for Prince Andrew declined to provide a comment when reached by Fox News because it involves a “personal matter.”

The report states that the Switzerland property in question is known as the Helora chalet, which boasts seven bedrooms, an indoor pool and sauna.

Despite their failed marriage, Andrew and Sarah still communicate and appear to get along. The former pair reunited last month to prepare care packages for healthcare workers battling the frontlines of the coronavirus.

Author Emily Giffin apologizes for Meghan Markle comments: ‘I am truly sorry for that negative impact’

Westlake Legal Group author-emily-giffin-apologizes-for-meghan-markle-comments-i-am-truly-sorry-for-that-negative-impact Author Emily Giffin apologizes for Meghan Markle comments: 'I am truly sorry for that negative impact' Nate Day fox-news/world/personalities/british-royals fox-news/topic/royals fox-news/person/prince-harry fox-news/entertainment/celebrity-news/meghan-markle fox-news/entertainment/celebrity-news fox-news/entertainment fox news fnc/entertainment fnc article 57a65501-c27a-538b-bd3d-e97ed2ccce57

Author Emily Giffin is issuing an apology.

The famed “Something Borrowed” writer, 48, has released a statement saying she’s “truly sorry” over her recent comments regarding Meghan Markle‘s behavior in a recently-released video of the Duchess reading to her son, Archie, in celebration of his first birthday.

On her Instagram Story on Wednesday, Giffin shared several since-deleted posts criticizing Markle, 38, insisting she’s a “phony” and should “go away.”

MEGHAN MARKLE, PRINCE HARRY RELEASE NEW VIDEO OF ARCHIE FOR HIS FIRST BIRTHDAY

After her comments received negative backlash online, Giffin temporarily made her Instagram profile private. It was eventually reopened to the public and the comments about Markle had been removed.

The author also shared an image of herself standing next to a cardboard cutout of Markle and Prince Harry — as well as several screenshots of remarks she’d made toward Markle of a positive nature — and addressed the reaction to her comments in the caption.

“I enjoy following celebrities and analyzing them with my readers. I post dozens of IG stories a day in a very honest, unfiltered way, as if I’m confiding directly with close friends,” she began the caption. “Further, I’m very interested in the British monarchy. I always have been. See the link in my bio for an essay I wrote in the days before Meghan and Harry wed.”

The author then addressed claims that her criticism of the Duchess is rooted in racism.

“To be clear, I absolutely loved that a biracial, American woman was marrying into the Royal Family. It seemed a wonderful, happy thing for everyone,” she wrote. “…Further, I was appalled by any signs of racism against her. Over recent months my feelings about BOTH Harry and Meghan changed. But I can say from the bottom of my heart that my criticism of Meghan has never had anything to do with her race.”

Giffin then said she carries sympathy for Markle, specifically in her decision with Harry, 35, to “step back” as senior members of the royal family.

“Further, I understood why she wanted to leave the monarchy and carve out her own path. I do, however, find fault with the way BOTH she and Harry handled things, and those feelings bled over in later posts, including the ones today,” Giffin said. “I can see how some of my posts may have felt mean-spirited, and could be construed as having racial undertones. It was not my intent, but I understand that intent and impact are two very different things.”

She concluded: “And I am truly sorry for that negative impact.”

Earlier on Wednesday, the author slammed Markle on Instagram in several different posts.

“Happy birthday, Archie,” the author wrote alongside a screenshot from the video of the Duchess reading, per E! News. “Go away, Megan [sic].”

The next image appeared to be a screenshot of a comment left by Giffin on Instagram.

“Holy ‘me first.’ This is the Megan [sic] show. Why didn’t she film and let Harry read? And why didn’t she take the moment at the end to say ‘he said daddy!’ Because that would make it about Harry for a split second, God forbid,” she wrote, referencing noises made by the 1-year-old that resembled “dada.”

The comment continued: “Also, you want privacy for your child so you put out a video (by your authorized biographer) of him …. wearing no pants?! Ooookay….”

Giffin also shared images of a text conversation she had, in which she called Markle “unmaternal” and “phony.”

Reps for Giffin did not immediately respond to Fox News’ request for comment.
