Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are moving out of London’s Kensington Palace, amid reports that Meghan has alienated her staff and that her friendship with Princess Kate Middleton has soured. The couple will, instead, reside in a cottage on Windsor Castle’s grounds about 20 miles from London, despite a chance to move into a 20-room apartment next door to Kate and Prince William’s home. “Kate and Meghan are very different people,” a royal source told The Sun (U.K.). “They don’t really get on.” Meghan, who announced she’s pregnant in October, this week lost her personal assistant, Melissa Toubati, who tearfully resigned after six months. British tabloids say Markle is ruffling feathers with “dictatorial behavior.”
Celebrity astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson has denied allegations of sexual misconduct by three women. A former assistant, Ashley Watson, said she quit her job after Tyson, host of the TV series Cosmos, called her to his home and made inappropriate sexual advances. Another accuser, Bucknell University astronomer Katelyn Allers, said Tyson reached into her dress and groped her while supposedly looking at her tattoo of the solar system. A third accuser, musician Tchiya Amet, said Tyson drugged and raped her while they were graduate students at the University of Texas. In a Facebook post, Tyson said he had a brief consensual relationship with Amet and that he hadn’t recognized Watson’s and Allers’ discomfort when those incidents occurred. The married father of two promised to be more mindful of “personal space.” Fox Broadcasting and National Geographic, which air Cosmos, said they would conduct a full investigation.
The Rev. Al Sharpton has sold the rights to his life story for $531,000—to his own charity, the New York Post reports. The civil rights leader, 64, defended the sale to the Harlem-based National Action Network (NAN), saying it will be able to triple what it paid by selling the rights to a filmmaker. He claimed there’s strong demand for his story. “You’ve got real property here,” he said. The deal will help Sharpton pay off at least some of the $3.2 million he and his businesses owe in federal and state taxes. ■
