Prince Harry hosted the Rugby League World Cup 2021 draw at Buckingham Palace this afternoon - in what could prove to be his last public appearance as a fully-fledged member of the "Firm". Read the answer he gave when a reporter asked him about the progress of talks on his future. As Camilla Tominey reports, Meghan is in Canada with their son, Archie, and the Duke is expected to join her there soon. It comes amid a development about the other senior member of the Royal family to recently "step back" - the Duke of York. Prince Andrew could be stripped of his round-the-clock armed bodyguards in the wake of the Jeffrey Epstein scandal. The Duke, 59, faces losing his Metropolitan police protection following a proposed downgrade of his security. A final decision rests in the hands of the Home Secretary and, ultimately, the Prime Minister. Read on for a senior source's comments. Angela Merkel tells EU that Brexit is a 'wake-up call' Brexit is a "wake-up call" for the European Union, Angela Merkel has said in a warning that Britain will emerge as an economic competitor to the bloc after it leaves the EU. The German Chancellor called on the remaining EU leaders to make Europe more competitive to meet the challenge of Brexit, as well as economic heavyweights such as the US and China. Her comments come as this analysis by James Crisp indicates the EU will point to the government's rescue of Flybe to help justify its demands for "level playing field guarantees" in the post-Brexit trade deal. And bad news for those banging on about Big Ben bonging. Downing Street has appeared to pull the plug on Big Ben chiming on Jan 31 to mark Brexit. Here's what the Prime Minister's spokesman had to say.  Blow for Bake Off as Sandi Toksvig quits Sandi Toksvig is leaving the Great British Bake Off to focus on other projects, she has announced.
