In this week’s royal update, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have declined Prince William’s invite to attend the event he will be hosting in honour of their mother, Princess Diana.

Prince Charles has revealed that his favourite car, which he has owned for over five decades, now runs on cheese and wine, Queen Elizabeth has been spotted worshipping for the first time in public since the Covid-19 pandemic began last year and Prince Andrew was banned from a royal banquet following sexual abuse allegations.

Prince Charles’ car runs on cheese and wine

The Prince of Wales strongly believes in taking care of the planet and making daily changes to our lives to promote more sustainability and reduce our carbon footprints, which have had the terrible effects on the planet over the years.

He recently revealed that he turned to a more sustainable source for fuel for his favourite Aston Martin, which he has owned for 51 years.

Charles said his car now runs on “surplus English white wine and whey from cheese process” as it uses E85 fuel, which consists of 85% bioethanol.

Harry and Meghan not attending William’s event for Diana

Speaking to US Weekly, a source has revealed that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex would not be travelling to the UK for Prince William’s event for their mother Princess Diana.

The event aims to celebrate donors who helped the brothers fund the Diana statue which was revealed earlier this year, as well as close friends and family of the late princess, including American musician Elton John.

“Harry is personally connecting with donors regarding the event,” said the source.

The source also said there was still tension between Harry and William since the Duke and Duchess of Sussex bid farewell to their royal duties.

“The relationship between Harry and William is still very much one of distance. I don’t just mean physical distance across the Atlantic, but they are not talking that much.

“There are still feelings of anger about the way the couple carried out their departure from their royal lives,” said the source.

Queen Elizabeth worships in public for first time since Covid-19 hit

The Queen of England had been attending private services for 18 months throughout the Covid-19 pandemic due to the strict restrictions that were put in place across the globe.

Daily Mail reported that she recently attended the service at the Royal Chapel of All Saints in the grounds of the nearby Royal Lodge.

The queen was spotted in a few photographs wearing a matching mauve coat and hat, being driven to the church to attend the service.

The last time the queen was spotted at the chapel was with her late husband Prince Philip last year July, when they attended the lockdown wedding of Princess Beatrice and Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi.

Prince Andrew banned from lavish royal banquet

The son of Queen Elizabeth recently and secretly attended a conference with army colonels but was banished from having dinner with the rest of the party.

The Sun reported that sources from inside the palace confirmed that Andrew was not allowed to represent the Grenadier Guards, and he was asked to leave before the dinner took place.

“He sat at the back of the room and was not allowed to dine with his brother. It is quite a fall from grace,” said a source.

The prince has spent most of his time at Balmoral with his mother, hiding from US lawyers.

He will still face prosecution in the US over Virginia Roberts’ sexual abuse claims despite the fact that the Met Police have dropped the case.
