In last night's ITV documentary, Meghan Markle described how she and Harry decided to push back against criticism after she realised the 'damaging' impact of burying emotions. Meghan also revealed that she was once told to end her relationship with Harry by UK friends who warned that scrutiny by the British media would 'destroy your life'. In her first on-screen interview since becoming a mother, the American former actress insisted that she had 'no idea' about the level of attention she would face. Appearing to hold back tears, Meghan admitted feeling 'vulnerable' during her pregnancy with Archie under the media spotlight. In a more light-hearted moment, the Duchess revealed her pet nickname for Prince Harry, saying that she refers to him as 'H'.

'William and I are on different paths… brothers have good days and bad days': Prince Harry appears to confirm rift with sibling in revealing interview as he hits out at press and says 'I won't be bullied into playing game that killed my mum' 

Speaking in an hour-long ITV documentary, filmed during his and Meghan's trip to Africa, the Duke of Sussex acknowledged tensions with his older brother for the first time. Speculation has raged about the state of Harry and William's relationship in recent months, following the break-up of the so-called 'Fab Four'. And in a candid interview, Harry pointedly failed to deny the rift, adding: 'As brothers you have good days and bad days.' He said: 'Part of this role, part of this job and this family being under the pressure it is under, inevitably stuff happens. But look, we are brothers, we will always be brothers. We are certainly on different paths at the moment but I will always be there for him and, as I know, he will always be there for me.

Paul Burrell revealed that the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are on a 'different trajectory' to the Sussex's, with Prince William heading 'to the boardroom' and Harry 'to the factory floor'.

Phil Dampier, author of Royally Suited who has written about the royals for three decades, said some senior members of the royal family are concerned after the couple waged war with the press.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will take baby Archie to California next month, where the seventh-in-line to the throne will spend the Thanksgiving holiday with the American side of his family.

No10 warns Brexit deal could be DEAD if Labour and Remainers force through customs union amendment - as Boris Johnson faces week of 'guerrilla warfare' with Speaker John Bercow set to block him from holding crunch vote again today

Westminster is bracing for 'Hell Week' as Boris Johnson (pictured top) tries to force the package through Parliament, with threats of all-night sittings. However, Commons Speaker John Bercow looks set to infuriate ministers by refusing to allow a showdown vote this afternoon. MPs denied the PM 'in principle' approval for his deal over the weekend, obliging him to ask the EU for an extension. And Mr Bercow is is expected to refuse another bid later, with Tories accusing the Speaker of 'sabotage' to stop Brexit and branding him a 'poor man's Cromwell'. It would again delay the moment of truth on Mr Johnson's deal, with legislation expected to be published later before key votes due tomorrow. Ministers now believe they have the numbers to force the package through with support from around 15 Labour MPs, after three years of bitter wrangling and delays. But Jeremy Corbyn (pictured bottom today) and other opposition parties could yet team up to wreck the process, with 'guerrilla warfare' plots to trigger votes on a second referendum and the whole UK staying in the EU customs union. No10 delivered a stark message that such fundamental changes would effectively kill the deal.

After MPs thwarted his efforts to win a meaningful vote in the Commons on Saturday he will try to hammer through his deal in order to keep his vow to get the UK out by Halloween.

A resuming court hearing will rule on whether the Prime Minister upheld the law with his contradictory letters to the EU.

ROBERT HARDMAN says the thousands in Parliament Square seemed as weary of Brexit as the

ROBERT HARDMAN: Even among these well-shod, well-organised Remainer diehards, there was no concealing the signs of protest fatigue this weekend. So if this lot are starting to tire of the Brexit debate, imagine how everyone else is feeling. Aerial view of the anti-Brexit protest in Parliament Square, London, on Saturday (left).

Calls for Europe to block a Brexit delay grow after Boris Johnson request

Boris Johnson last night sent a reluctant, unsigned request to extend the Brexit process beyond October 31 after MPs failed to back his deal at Westminster yesterday. The PM insists he does not want the delay and will try to force his deal through Parliament this week, setting up a series of knife-edge votes in the Commons. Today there were growing calls in Europe to bring the three-year Brexit process to an end this month - which could leave Britain facing a No Deal exit if Mr Johnson cannot win support for his deal. 'We need a yes or no from Britain on the Brexit agreement,' said Emmanuel Macron's European affairs minister Amelie de Montchalin. Mr Macron has long been impatient with Britain - lobbying EU leaders in April to limit the current extension to six months rather than a year - and his office said last night that a further delay would be 'in no-one's interest'. In Germany, senior Social Democrat MP Achim Post said it was time for Britain to 'finally reach a decision' and said any extension granted this month should be the last. All 27 EU governments would need to approve a further Article 50 extension - meaning it would only take one country to object to block a delay.

The EU is considering a Brexit 'flextension' that could last until next year - but will delay a decision until it has seen whether PM has Commons backing for his new deal, it emerged last night.

Discussing the vitriol faced by Jacob Rees-Mogg and his 12-year-old son as they left Westminster on Saturday, Miss Vine said: 'Occasionally, we do get aggression in the street and it's quite scary'.

He died because they wouldn't help and we intend to make them pay for that.'

Four weeks ago, he regained control of his right index finger, but doctors couldn't find any signals going to nerves in the left-hand side of his body and believe that he will never regain the ability to move.

Double trouble... trebled! Identical brothers, 35, have three sets of twins between them

Identical brothers John and Dave Winstanley are now the proud fathers of three sets of non-identical twin brothers between them.

His brother Dave is father of Seth and Jake, top left, making three twin sets between them. It is believed to be the first time this has happened in the UK.

The three sets of twins arrived in under two years - meaning the newborn baby routine of nappies, bottles and sleepless nights hit the brothers like a whirlwind. The pair, from Congleton, Cheshire, were stunned when their partners became pregnant within months of each other.

The fake-skin cover that makes your phone TICKLISH: Scientists create case that reacts like flesh when pinched and caressed 

Scientists have developed a prototype skin that they say can wrap around devices such as smartphones and make them ticklish for people using them. The prototype, which has been designed to look like and mimic human skin, responds to different forms of human contact such as tickling, caressing and pinching. Skin-On interface can be attached to mobile phones, wearable devices and laptop touchpads. The technology was developed by researchers at the University of Bristol in partnership with Telecomm ParisTech and Sorbonne University in Paris. The team says their work opens the door for a possible future with 'anthropomorphic devices' - where gizmos have human characteristics.
