tv FOX and Friends Saturday FOX News September 10, 2022 3:00am-7:00am PDT
to play a role as well in the future of the united kingdom, western civilization and of the world as well. thank you for watching this morning. we will have continuing coverage throughout today and the coming days. for right now, "fox and friends" weekend starts now. ♪ >> reporter: whereas it has pleased all my god. our late sovereign lady, queen elizabeth ii, of blessed and glorious memory, by whose decease the crown of the united kingdom, great britain, and northern ireland, is solely and rightfully come to the prince charles philip arthur george.
we, therefore, the lord's spiritual and temporal of this realm and members of the house of commons together with other members of her late majesty's privy council, representative of the territories, the citizens of london and others, now hereby, with one voice and consent of tongue and heart, publish and proclaim that prince charles philip arthur george is now, by the death of our late sovereign of happy memory, become our only lawful and rightful leige lord charles iii, and his other realms and territories, head of the commonwealth, defender of the faith, to whom we acknowledge
those are live images from st. james palace watching the public proclamation of king charles iii. we will bring in martha mccallum, and current executive editor of the story covering the royal event all morning. what does it feel like to be in london watching all of this pageantry and feeling all of that energy? martha:it is not every day we get to see what we have watched this morning, like something out of a movie, watching the palace guards take off their bearskin hats and get on one knee, three cheers for the king, a very dramatic, theatrical sort of moment we are watching. i can hear the cannons from the tower of london and st. james. there are cannons going off at hyde park as well so we can hear them as they move through the city.
it is a very moving ceremony. you can hear people cheering outside st. james palace, the wonderful chorus of trumpets and they made this declaration and they sang for the first time officially the national anthem which is god bless our gracious queen for the last 70 years, but this morning it changes and becomes god bless our gracious king. americans recognize the song we grew up with, our country t is of the zoo but the, we stole it from the british anthem which is god bless our gracious king. are remarkable morning at the joyful day in the middle of this process, the flags went to full staff for the ascension of the king. very interesting events we have been watching. will: we also watched king
charles iii address the nation after being formally proclaimed king. here's a portion of that. >> it is my most sorrowful duty to announce to you the death of my beloved mother, the queen. i know how deeply you, the entire nation and the whole world sympathize with me and deeply aware of this great inheritance and duties and heavy responsibilities of sovereignty which asked to me and in carrying out the heavy task laid upon me to which i now dedicate what remains to me my life, i pray the guidance and help of almighty god. will: do you anticipate he will carry forward what the queen had been doing or do you see changes ahead? martha: i think he will try.
his whole mission at this point is to continue that stability and continuity of being a cultural, traditional icon for people of the united kingdom to look to for who they are, what binds them together, a national banner so they can act regardless of their own political leanings and backgrounds, interesting separation that exists here but it is very tenuous, very difficult to hold onto these royal lineages. look what happened across europe. don't think those people can name another king or queen of those countries in the world but everybody knows who queen elizabeth was and now king charles is. they are hanging on to something that has been a past vestige of the rest of the world, and a vastly smaller
empire that doesn't exist anymore, commonwealth that does exist, the traditions are very deeply held by most people in this country, this kingdom, it is not a guarantee that it goes on forever given how quickly the world is changing. rachel: we are looking at the pageantry, it is very interesting for us as americans but for me at least, the gossip and a lot of tabloid stories that are animating a lot of this is fascinating. you talk about how tenuous this is for the royal family, that's not a guarantee and that is the introduction of megan markel, has been destabilizing or trying to make sure it doesn't become destabilizing. we saw this week when megan markel came to london with prince harry, gave a speech,
the queen died and there is word that megan was going to join harry where they were grieving after the queen died. she was told, harry was told do not bring megan, because these are personal moments and the royal family is concerned about not just harry's book but m me meghan's podcast, they don't want any details she can use and trade in on. >> it was charles who said no. it is a question of what is appropriate at the moment, she has been very divisive figure in the things she said about the family not to mention the fact that kate was not going. it was a moment for the inner circle of the family. everybody can relate to the
final moment in a parent or grandparent's life. they want to have their children, immediate grandchildren, not necessarily in laws, megan and harry arriving, i don't think any of them wanted it to be about that. charles made it clear. talking about harry and megan if you want to take a look at that. >> also to express my love for harry and megan as they continue to build their lives overseas. pete: that is the reference. martha: that says it all.
he didn't call them the duke and duchess of sussex, good luck to you, we love you, good luck. they are out of the picture in so many ways. there is a lot of hesitation, no doubt he will drop some bombshells to sell books and that has been an enormous turnoff and sadness for his family. they would like nothing more than to be united and be to gather but that was not the choice they made. rachel: when the word came that they were going to go there together how did that happen? there was a press release given out by harry and megan that says we are going and they 3 count and say you are not coming. it seems so embarrassing they would put that release out, and be told megan can't go. martha: there were questions, whether they would see queen
elizabeth, there was a moment, that they were going to meet with her and they are not going to meet, it is not in keeping with the way queen elizabeth has run thing to keep their emotions to themselves. it is reminiscent of the diana moments, where she started to talk about her own unhappiness. i see parallels in those moments but it detracts from the duty and putting the duty to the country above your own feelings and for some of these younger members their feelings are more important than their duty to the crown and william, charles and queen elizabeth certainly didn't see it that way. pete: we turn to the united states of america, questions over the change in the throne, how the royal family, how king
charles treats royal politics and queen elizabeth ii dealt with politics and the united states of america. look back at how the shared values, having dinner with than president gerald ford in 1976. >> language, traditions, and history, have given us a common vision of what is right and just. both our peoples believe in the worth of individuals and the family, freedom of religion and expression, and in the right to change a government by the ballot box rather than the gun. pete: can't remember how many presidents, what do you think
about the relationship with the royal family in the past and going forward? martha: back to winston churchill and fdr, you think about the influence of the queen for all those years, weighing in on her prime minister, in those confidential conversations, the advise and consent role, 14 of them would say that is very important to them. in terms of the us, an invitation for the queen is the one that was most anticipated and enjoyed by american presidents. the will: who did not meet with queen elizabeth was lyndon johnson. all the way through donald trump and president biden, it was an enormous moment.
it really is all about that special relationship we heard so much about for all these decades. there's a bond regardless of the rebellion and revolution that led to the formation of an exceptional country created in the united states, there is respect for that ultimately from the united kingdom but we have a lot in common in terms of values and that is what queen elizabeth tried to possess at those meetings and show the importance of you and all those visits to the us. interesting to see when prince charles comes to the united states to meet with president biden. because there is a new prime minister, liz truss, she should go first, before a visit from charles. we will see how that holds out. rachel: in a clip isar recently
she referenced our revolutionary war and said it was a bilateral affair, she joked about it and she does care about that special relationship you talked about and i believe charles is going to carry that forward. it is great hearing from you and we will check back in with you all morning long, thanks for joining us. will: great to set the scene. we watch live images as king charles iii is formally proclaimed monarch. when you watch the military aspect, martha touched on this, it reminds you how tedious monarchies have been in their perpetuation. a lot of disputes, and the bravado meant to show this is our choice, the monarchy, that tradition has continued now. why are they doing that?
they put the monarchy on more rocky footing with the public. without the public there's no monarchy or at least perpetuation. rachel: the charges of racism that came from meghan our touchy. there's a lot going on underneath. they were hoping she would unite the commonwealth being a biracial woman. instead, as we saw, william, prince william and kate, when they received a lot of bad press and a lot of people associate that with things that she had said. we will get to some of those interesting details later on but coming up, we have kamala harris issue attacks on the
supreme court following roe versus wade. >> this is an activist court. >> rival candidates to review records seized by the fbi. pete: stay with us as coverage continues of queen elizabeth ii's passing at the royal family succession. >> inevitably, a long life will pass many milestones. my own is no exception. t free . get the lowe's exclusive whirlpool laundry pair, with the 2-in-1 removable agitator that lets you customize any load. get the products you need this labor day.

pete: our vice president, vice president kamala harris has called the supreme court an activist court. here is what she told me the press on nbc. >> if this is an activist court. >> what does that mean? >> it means that we had an established right for almost half a century, which is the right of women to make decisions about their own body as an extension of what we decided to be the privacy rights to which all people are entitled. and this court took that constitutional right away. and we are suffering as a nation because of it. that causes me great concern about the integrity of the court overall.
rachel: quick take aways from this clip. the democrats fully realize this is an issue they believe will swing elections including this midterm election. they would like two things front and center the next two months, donald trump and abortion. they believe that will be the wind that pushes their sales to victory. second, like every issue when it comes to politics these days, she is redefining what it means to be an activist court. an activist court isn't one that adheres to the interpretations of the constitution, but one that creates rights and that clearly happened even by commentators on both sides of the legal aisle. which was a creation of a constitutional right that did not exist in the constitution. when she says it existed for 50 years, it was created by the supreme court of the united states. will: kamala harris believes this is a political winner for her personally. he has been upfront talking about this.
a preview clip will come out tomorrow, the nature but she is talking about, she believes she channels the activist-based which benefit are politically. they like the supreme court until the supreme court doesn't agree with them and then they want to kick out the justices and pack the court. it is political expediency. rachel: this is about giving rights to the citizens saying this decision, this idea of whether women should have a right to have an abortion or not, whether they can kill their own child are not should go back to the states and so they'd don't want that to happen, they created this right out of thin air back in the 70s. i thought that was a pretty activist court back then but you didn't see people delegitimizing the court itself and using high office like this. she is the vice president of the united states calling to question the legitimacy of the court. here is chief justice roberts defending the court.
pete: he says because people disagree with opinions is not a basis for questioning legitimacy of the court. will: that is something the chief justice had some rulings many of us don't agree with. 's approach is been you disagree with us if you want but don't call the legitimacy of the court into question. so many institutions have a deficit of trust from the justice department to the fbi to congress read large. if you can't count on the supreme court to be the arbiter of a decision we are in in our rocky place. rachel: interesting to see all differently liberals and conservatives handle things they don't agree with. conservatives are so angry at justice roberts when the obamacare decision came down and i never recall any -- they were angry and upset and didn't like the decision, they tried to go on tv and talk about why they thought was wrong but never did what you just saw vice president kamala harris do.
this next topic is interesting, the 3 of us have been talking about why don't we know who is the leaker who leaked the ruling -- the early draft of the decision. will: so much going on, now it is a big part of the midterm us, we got the preview draft of the decision of roe versus wade beforehand when we never should have. the supreme court, like the royals use to become totally private, locked, sealed, should have access, we got that and the political churn began before the decision came. rachel: was there a megan markel in there somewhere? will: will we find the megan markel of the supreme court? rachel: we still don't know. neil gorsuch on duty to the fact that they might come forward soon. pete: he said this thursday regarding the wonderment of
where is the supreme court leaker? they have a committee that has been busy looking forward to their report. those are the first words we heard about the investigation. since the dobbs opinion is leaked. rachel: it is weird that it is taking this long because we still don't know. pete: i don't want to tie too many stories together into one but what happens when it comes to accountability, we have a hit and run culture, hit and run media. i will compare this to what is going on in the duke case where there are allegations of racism and it is viral and every media institution has something to say with accusations and the story falls apart and there is truth and no accountability and 0 minutes of coverage and same thing here, everyone has something to talk about, no
accountability. will: they are zeroing in on potential individuals. pete: king charles the third is the new king of england following his mother's 70 year reign. what kind of king will he be? we answer the story next. younger zoe: i'm listening to music. so today, let's paint... ...with behr, america's most trusted paint brand, and make your home, yours. behr. exclusively at the home depot. - [female narrator] five billion people lack access to safe surgery. thousands of children are suffering

palace, so many more kids. it is a saturday and people made their way from all over the country to honor the late clean but also from all over the world. we've seen various flags, people holding flowers, the buckingham palace urged people not to lay them in front of the gates but instead to bring them to green park and we see people carrying handwritten notes to honor the queen and her 7 decades of service. this institution and representation of british tradition, and thank her for everything she lived through and everything that she reigned through. the household cavalry, the band cast 10 minutes ago. we heard bells ring, so much celebration will take place for the life the queen lived, honoring her and celebrating the new king, king charles iii
was proclaimed today in this historic ceremony and people are lining up hoping they will be able to see him when he makes his way back to buckingham palace. will: the future of the bridge monarchy and in the hands of king charles iii as he is formally proclaimed king. >> publish and proclaim that prince charles philip arthur george is now king, head of the commonwealth, defender of the faith, god save the king. >> god save the king. will: what changes, if any, will he make to the front? let's ask derek russell, thank you for being with us. >> my pleasure. will: let's start with the opening question. what changes, if any, do you expect from king charles? >> we saw one this morning, the accession ceremony has never been televised. it has been 70 years since last
time it happened but i think we will see a more open and accessible monarchy. sunshine on the magic these days. people in america and in britain are going to be able to see a lot more of these ceremonies. also continuity. he stuck to the traditions his mother and ancestors have adhered to. it will be a more visible monarchy that keeps the best parts of the past. will: will be more visible when it comes to politics? queen elizabeth famously if not just noteworthy, largely stayed out of politics, the thronepolitical. king charles, then prince charles, waited more readily into political issues. many are wondering, will that be the course for the now king? >> brilliant question. i love your emphasis on the word prince charles because you hit the nail on the head.
when he was prince charles he made clear he understands you go through a metamorphosis, born again is a different person and he answered clearly that when he is king, he intends to leave the politics behind that he used when he was prince and follow his mother's example of being apolitical while giving a sense of identity is keeping the monarchy at the center of national life. will: there is a lot of question about the value of the monarchy, the love of the monarchy, there is something hard to understand from an american. i'm curious as we see it switch from elizabeth to charles, is the british public's love of the monarchy which is a mark of
patriotism, is it to the throne or was it to queen elizabeth? will king charles maintained that same love of the british public? >> that is really interesting. from a historian's perspective we've been asking that for a long time. to what extent were they elizabethans? that's a tough one to answer. signs yesterday were in the king's favor. the minute he arrived at buckingham palace the crowd erupted into cries of god save the king, long live the king lodz he will confound his critics. i say that my hedging my bets and saying time will tell. there will always be people who loved the monarchy because they loved elizabeth ii but the king has far better odds of sticking to what the people gave him credit for. that's my personal hunch.
will: for many, the crown is akin to patriotism and criticism of the crown is a can to the flag which i think many americans can understand though through a different prism, we understand the nature of patriotism. tropical storm kay hitting the bay area with flooding and winds, the great american squeeze, new survey showed 70 million americans cutting back on travel, groceries, and other necessities. brian brumberg is here to crunch the numbers. ♪ ♪ taking care of business ♪ working overtime ♪ it was time for a nunormal with nucala. nucala is a once-monthly add-on treatment for severe eosinophilic asthma that can mean less oral steroids. not for sudden breathing problems. allergic reactions can occur.

loans, president biden attempted to say we will cancel 10,000 in student loans. my alma mater, princeton, going to offer a free ride worth $300,000 to all students whose families earn less then one hundred thousand dollars including tuition, housing and meals. was the impact of this, we will pay for it, a huge endowment. >> this is a school with a $40 billion endowment. a lot of people ask why are taxpayers giving any money to students who go to this school? invest the money and the students who are going there? you give them the loan and if they don't pay it back they won't pay it back, wire taxpayers on the hook for this. princeton is making a move that looks good in the headlines but look at the system at large. it is still completely broken
and there are scores of schools out there that could afford to spend a lot more money on their own students and only doing it now because they are feeling the heat, people said it is unfair that taxpayers are spending all this money to forgive those loans, people are stepping up and headlining friendly ways but we need a fundamental reset on this question. no way americans who have the benefit of a college education should be paying loans christians going to princeton. pete: they will be paying for students making one hundred one thousand dollars. >> another great incentive turn a little less money. rich kids parents pay for it all and codes and the middle take it up. thank you for getting the memo, wearing the vikings purple and pulling against the pack tomorrow and sunday. as we continue coverage of

will: the proclamation was read and we heard a lot of the trumpets, the formality of it. something that looks almost like off of a movie set. we're going to bring martha back in for assessment. martha, these parabola missions are being read -- proclamation is being read back when they would spread this way and not through radio and television and wales and all the other parts of the united kingdom, these similar ceremonies will be happening. >> i was thinking the same thing. the earliest version of social media. before there were ways to spread the word across the nation, there were trumpets that would
signify there was news to be announced in different regions around the kingdom and it would harolded by trumpets and music and this is at st. paul's cathedral and happening at many cathedrals around the kingdom. this is where charles and diana were married and many reck the imaimages of the young couple coming out on the steps and it was in the middle of the blitz during world war ii. there was damage from the aerial bombs in world war ii to this part of england as well at a time when the world wondered whether or not the entire united kingdom would be taken over by hitler as well as continental europe. extremely historic. pete: are we watching the
transformation of the monarchy or decline of the monarchy? i mean to ask you this, there's going to be questions about whether prince charles remains a political as his mother, queen elizabeth, was a political. we talk about various parts of the kingdom, wales, and scotland and northern ireland. we have this transformation, will the love be there for charles? will he be a po political? will we see in the next years or decade people embrace the monarchy as they have in the past or was that the literal end of an era with the death of queen elizabeth? >> that's a great question, will. what's the relevance or meaning of the monarchy at this point. there's a time for 100 years when the british empire was the super power in the world. the lar largest empire in the worship god. those days are long over and the empire -- world.
those days are long over and the empire and there's ongoing conversations in africa and caribbean about parts of the commonwealth and whether or not they'll stay in it. that being said, you see an enormous effort on the part of the prince and princess of wales, kate middleton and prince william, to move the monarchy into the future. i think really it rests on the two of them. prince charles i think will continue the legacy of his mother and there's an effort on the part of the people here that we've spoken to, they want to embrace him, they want him to keep the stability of the monarchy, which is extremely popular and continues to be popular in the united kingdom, despite a number of detractors and sort of the wokism that they're dealing with here as well. i think it remains really popular. it does fall on the shoulders of kate and william. many people have said she's the one that can save the monarchy. she is sort of the most perfect combination of diana in her beauty and presence and queen
elizabeth in her reserve and her dignities so she -- it really does rest on her shoulders in many ways and certainly her husband. will: martha, you brought up the commonwealth in india and canada and parts of africa, i'm curious closer to home. is it popular in wales and scotland? >> you know, i mean scotland has long had a movement to break away and that would obviously be an enormous change and something that the monarchy here would want to prevent. but those struggles have been going on really for centuries between scotland and england and certainly you see the troubles in ireland and the division of northern ireland and the republic of ireland. that was something that queen elizabeth worked very hard to reopen that door to ireland. she went there in 2011 and shook hands with an individual who had led the resistance movement.
these are people that the ira, who killed lord malbatton, one of the dearest relatives of charles by blowing up his boat. there's a ton of history of break away and trying to keep it together and big questions. you know, i was just reading they lowered the flags to half staff in ghana and kenya and complicated histories in these countries, but they're putting out proclamations today as well of their love and admiration of queen elizabeth. in big families, it's comply cod extremely complicated in this situation as well. perachel: yeah, family dynamics are complicated and this is no different. one thing that's striking in the procession, it's not just government officials that are processing in part of the ceremony, but there's clerics and the queen of england when she was alive, one of her titles
was defender of the faith. now that title passes onto king charles, who has said in the past that he would be the defender of the faiths with an s at the end of faith. some people wondering what that means. did he misspeak or is he taking that title into a different direction, martha, and what would that mean for the future of the monarchy, for england, and just for the values of western civilization that christianity has, you know, been part of in that part of the world. >> yeah, it's a great point, rachel. you know, the head of the united kingdom, now king charles iii talked about this yesterday in his first speech. he is the defender of the faith. he is now the head of the church of england, which is a role equivalent in the catholic church to the pope. he is the religious leader.
he's the head of the church. when he is cornated, he will take that on as king in an enormous way. you talked this morning about the protestant faith and presbyterian faith in scotland, and that is what he refers to, i think, in terms of the faith. they want to be accepting and understanding of all the different faiths. it's a very diverse community in london and around the united kingdom, but his role is as head of the church of england, and there's no division really between those roles for him. he is his government role and his role of faith have been hand-in-hand. when you see the ceptor and you see the globe as well. the globe has a cross on top of it that you'll see, you'll also see this traveling in the funeral cortez with queen elizabeth. the orb is the christian globe. these things are deeply intertwined and really not to be
separated. pete: it's -- rachel: it's very, very interesting and the queen, adhering to her christian faith. a lot of people think the king's religion is more climate change. we'll see what happens there and if he's able to assume that religious role as well. martha, so great checking in with you all morning and we'll be back with you later on as well. >> thanks, guys. look forward to it. will: king charles iii approving the day of queen elizabeth's funeral a public holiday. rachel: it'll be a ten day period of national mourning. pete: alex hogan is live from buckingham palace with moray. moraymore. good morning, alex. >> good morning. thousands of people make their way here to buckingham palace and despite the size of the crowds, you hear construction noise behind me because of the number of journalists here from
all over the world and the crowd itself is relatively quiet and people are hoping to get the gimps of the king when he makes -- glimpse of the king when he makes his way back to the palace today and the arch bishop of canterbury and there's a lot of proclamation declaring him king and people want to see it themselves with their own eyes. it's a weekend so there's a lot of kids here from across the country and many on the shoulders of their parents and this is a meaningful moment, paparents wanted to bring their kids here and they'll be able to one day say they were here standing in front of buckingham palace on the initial day of king charles' reign. pete: thank you, alex. rachel: we have a few headlines now. two georgia deputies shot and killed in an ambush on thursday have been identified as jonathon
colesky and marshal irvin. colesky was a u.s. army veteran and irvin a father of two. they were serving an arrest warrant in the supp suburbs of s rang out and two cust ka suspecn into custody. bill diblasio was hired to teach at the harvard school. one student saying i worry about the stigma of his presidential run and antics as mayor. diblasio teaching an eight-week course on what he believes are the accomplishments of his tenure and the passage of pre-k and fighting covid. what do you think of this, pete? pete: he's going to teach at the school i gave my degree back

federal policies. ashley, let me share this with you, this is a statement "head start covid-19 requirements will apply to over 1 million children and 225,000 staff members and teachers, that's to quantify this problem. i mentioned in the outset, you're florida's attorney general but you're a mother. first, from your perspective as a mother, i mean, i can't imagine sending my kid today with his face covered. >> well, that's why i was so passionate about pushing back on this in court. when i heard that young children, as young as 2 years old would have to mask all day, even while outside, i told my team, we have to be at the precipice of pushing back on this. we filed suit, not surprisingly because it was unlawful and immoral at the time, the court gave an injunction and they issued an injunction so in all of the states where you have attorneys general that said this cannot happen, we will not allow this insane federal policy that's going to wreck child development to be applied in our
states, there's an injunction in place right now. in states where you don't have leadership like in florida with governor desantis and me in court, you are left with this federal mandate out there that in head start programs, and remember what head start is, it's a federally funded, early learning opportunity for low-income families which primarily helps minority families. those are pretty much the only children now that are having to mask all day and those are exactly the children we need to be looking at faces while their teachers are speaking. understanding and how to communicate. this injunction gets in place, i push back months later saying this is not fair to the rest of the children in this nation where they don't have leadership to push back on the insane policies. i led an effort by 22 states to seek the federal governments say, yes, okay, this is an unlawful policy, we'll stop. oh, no. today they are still fighting us
in court to say we want this policy in place. they're still filing pleadings even though a judge has set this unlawful and even thousand now, now -- though now, it's unlawful and reprehensible to the wellbeing and opportunity for these young children for the communities. will: i can hear the passion in your voice, ashley. the department of help and human services, on august 22, 2022 all grantees will continue with the same approach and not evaluate compliance with the mask requirement as we begin the new program year. lisa, you heard the primary demographics that are affected by this, low socioeconomic children, minority children. i don't know how many those affect or describe your family, but regardless your family's been targeted because of their attendance to head start programs. how does that feel to be among the very, very few left in this country to be targeted by a policy that's clearly at this
point punitive and unscientific? >> it's interesting because i was actually a grant writer for the parent organization, which is how my children enrolled in head start in the first place. we were an over-income family but we're amongst foster youth and of course different demographics and so it's just really interesting to see them being treated differently, and truly like where does the parent go for feedback? that's been my main issue since they enrolled in november of last year. why does it take legal action for something to be modified? i don't understand that. will: we'll find out hopefully we'll be following along with ashley and find out if legal action is going to quite honestly save these children. thank you for your efforts, attorney general ashley moody, and thank you for being on with us this morning, lisa kerr.
sovereignty. rachel: as we look live at king charles iii's ascension in london, he paid tribute to his late mother queen elizabeth and her remarkable life of service. will: it shows the majesty serving the new uk prime minister. pete: here to discuss, former adviser to margaret thatcher. will and i can't figure our transition here, nile, how will they figure theirs from such a seminole figure dead at a timed to the tradition in the a political nation of her tradition to now king charles. what does that look like? >> thank you for having me on the show today and truly historic moment in the united kingdom today with the proclamation of king charles iii as king. so, you know, an incredible moment for the british people. after 70 years, queen elizabeth
on the throne actually and so i think for king charles, this is going to be of course a monumental challenge. he has so far i think risen to the occasion. he gave yesterday a very moving and powerful address to the british nation. he also went on a walk about in front of buckingham palace greeting hundreds of people, actually, and i think that king charles will settle into this role. the british public will warm to him, but the scale of the task he has on his hands is absolutely vast. after all, his mother was on the throne for seven decades and she was greatly loved, hugely popular with the british people. i think she left the monarchy in a very, very strong position. so king charles must maintain that tradition and follow in the footsteps of his mother and keep out of political matters. that's been a problem i think for charles in the past as he's weighed in on environmental
issues or immigration matters when she was prince. he cannot do that as king. he has to be completely outside of any kind of party politics, and he has to be a completely neutral figure but i do think there's immense goodwill towards charles as he takes on his new role as king, and i think this will be a successful reign and ultimately, of course, his son prince william will take over as king and so some decades from now. i do think the royal family, the future of the royal family actually is safe and secure. rachel: so now, the british people love the queen, but i think what they really loved were the values that she stood for and this idea of being a servant leader. the duty, the way she never made anything about herself.
it was always about the people, and i think it's interesting that very early on in this transition that we're talking about, prince charles basically said i don't want megha meghan e here and sent a message by referring to them as as harry and megan and not the titles and is he sending a message that we want people who are going to be servants and duty bound and not going to make the monarchy about themselveses. is this him carrying on that legacy and that what those actions were about? >> that's a great point, and i think the king's speech yesterday was all about duty, service, sacrifice, living for the sake of the british nation and also of course the commonwealth of the nation's 56 countries and 2.5 billion people. so the king really wants to continue to be the legacy, the
spirit service of the queen and that is a great thing. he wants to be the uniting force but a force of service to his country and a force of dedication to a truly great british nation. pete: now, thank you for joining us this morning and giving us those reflections. >> my pleasure. will: coming up, hurricane earl whipping up strong currents in the atlantic. rick reich is tracking it. >> why are illegals being bussed to the suburbs if mayor lightfoot is a sanctuary city. we have that next.

a fox weather alert, southern california dealing with the remnants of tropical storm kay, which made l landfall as a hurricane in mexico. sandbags and dunes going up in san diego as officials prepare for storm surge and flooding. heavy rain already battering parts of san diego county. meanwhile on the east coast, hurricane earl is whipping up dangerous rip currents after grazing bermuda. our own rick reichmuth is tracking both storms. >> hey, if you're out across the eastern sea board this weekend, be careful. people trying to get one last weekend out on the beach. we'll see a lot of rip currents and very rough seas. that's hurricane earl. it's moving well away from the coast. never made anywhere near land
fall towards the u.s., but the as well as from it will im-- swells from it will impact parts of the east coast and that storm is quickly pulling off towards the east. today is statistic peak of hurricane season, and we have had a really inactive last couple of months that said the majority of hurricane activity still ahead of us at least statistically speaking. look at the atlantic, almost nothing going on that we're watching, one area pulling off of africa and see if that wave develops into anything but not at this point any concern. now, this was what is post-tropical storm kay, it was hurricane kay. if you said on the peak of hurricane season where we'd be seeing activity is across southern california, i'd never believe it but that was going on yesterday. we had winds over 100 miles an hour in the mountains of california and today we'll continue to see some of the moisture into arizona and new mexico as well. we'll watch that front moving across parts of the plains bringing cooler temperatures the all right, pete, back to you. pete: very good, rick reichmuth,
thank you. texas governor greg abbott continues to bus illegals to sanctuary cities, one official in a chicago suburb is calling out mayor lori lightfoot claiming she went illegals to his community without his knowledge. burridge mayors saying they're were in texas and now they're in bur ridge. we were behind sided and the idea that neither the city or state thought to call the mayor or administrator of our village to me is almost intentional. joining me to react is mic mich. you'd think the mayor would welcome migrants to the city since she's a sanctuary city. what do you think of this? >> hypocrisy is stunning. fox has done a good job of covering this story but you're
the only ones. and thank goodness that greg abbott with this program he's instituted has drawn more scrutiny nationally on this problem. i asked secr s the secretary ina hearing what are you doing to prepare the small texas towns of the kids coming in for the school districts, healthcare systems and law enforcement. really there was a nonanswer. they're not doing anything. now we see that extrapolated to much wider parts of the country. people are understanding that this is a problem for local governments. pete: it sure .s money has to come from somewhere and resources have to come from somewhere and if it's going to folks coming illegally, it's being pulled away from kids and other citizens that need it. the biden administration is announcing $2.6 billion in even more military funding for ukraine. i've lost track, outrebounded
our viewers have as well of what we've spent there and what do you make of more spending and if it'll be used properly. >> yeah, the last part is absolutely critical and no one knows the answer to that. i cannot get anyone in the administration to actually tell me, talk with me about what is the plan. remember, one of the first classified briefings we had with the joint chiefs and intention and secretary of state, they said this thing was going to be over in three days. kyiv was going to fall in three days. that was widely reported in the press. then it's morphed into a war of attrition. i'm glad kyiv didn't fall and i'm glad that president zelensky has been able to defend his country and his people are showing the resolve that you would want them to show, but what we don't know, what we haven't heard from the
administration is what is your plan here? what are you doing to try and end this war? we're not getting any answers on that front. pete: no, what's the end game? >> some say we have to have that before there's another vote on funding, they have to come and talk to us about what in the world it is they're doing and you're quite right too, where have the dollars gone that have already been sent? pete: just like the 20 years where we continued to send men and money to afghanistan without a clear sense of what the end state was so the end state ended ended horrifically. crude oil fallen to the lowest level we've had in the united states since november of 1984. you want to talk ukraine, there's an impact on energy to try and reduce energy prices that the administration released some of the strategic petroleum
reserve and now it's at the lowest level we've seen since 1984. what does that mean? >> absolutely inexcusable. you know, your other story that you're talking about this morning is we're right at the peak of hurricane season. atlantic hurricane load this year hasn't been anything near what the national hurricane center predicted it would be in the early part of the year but still, you don't deplete your ppeak spl yum reserve in the -- petroleum reserve in the middle of hurricane season and think it's there for an emergency. this is wrong what the biden administration is doing. pete: representative michael burgress, tha thank you for your time this morning. will: we had a conversation about that . pete: god bless the congressman and i'll acknowledge that. will, over to you. will: appreciate that, will. we begin sadly with the tragedy

megan mcdowell lost her brother-in-law in the world trade center south tower and since then she started heart works, an organization with the mission to share the same kindness she felt following that loss, and she joins us now. megan, welcome. so your sister's husband died in the 9/11 attacks and you were just so bulled over by the amount of kindness and good deeds that were given to her in those following months. talk to me about what people did for your sister and how that inspired you to start heart works. >> hi, rachel. thank you for having me this morning. i think it was just that overwhelming feeling that we were in the worst thing that had ever happened to my family. witnessing my sister being upset, her children being upset. we all know it was kind of one of the worst moments in history and yet on top of that, all of these acts of kindness came in from cups of coffee being left
on her doorstep to somebody raking her leaves to somebody picking her kids up to go to soccer. the phone calls, the hugs when we were out in the grocery stores. it changed me on a cellular level. it really did. the kindness overwhelmed me during our worst possible time. rachel: yeah, it seemed to bring out the best of people in the middle of the horrible tragedy. you started heart works specifically to help other people who are going through that grief process. tell me how you do that through heart works. >> so heart works has become in my town a place where when something is happening tragic in our town or in our community, we can show up with checks, with buying them a -- getting them a cleaning service. we can help them get rides into sloan kettering for cancer treatment and pay for the tolls and parking and all the small
things that add up when somebody is really, really struggling. rachel: it's a beautiful thing when someone passes away and there's grief, a lot of people are there in the first few weeks and then that person can often feel like they're alone in the months that follow, and i love that heartworks is tracking people and staying with them as they get through this grief journey. i know you had a fundraiser just yesterday, by the way, your organization is very close to where i live in basking ridge, new jersey. social security very close and it's beautiful and i know what you're doing. talk to me about how people can get involved. >> so the best way to get involved is follow us on social media and if you live locally, come to our meetings. the next one is on october 11. the biggest thing we tell people is live the way we were living after 9/11. we saw the unity that was created out of that, and heartworks is about not waiting for tragedy to reach out and be kind. just live this way on a daily
basis and so if you follow us on social media, we're all about reminding us what's important in life and the only thing that really matters is love and reaching out to each other and taking care of each other when times are hard. rachel: you represent the epitome of never forgetting and the spirit of 9/11. that beautiful kindness that we all experienced in those days. megan, thanks for joining us this morning. good luck, i hope everyone goes to the website. >> thank you. thank you. rachel: our world coverage continues at the top of the hour. ♪
for the guidance and help of all mighty god. rachel: over the last three hours, we've seen two proclamations in london and heard from the new king himself giving an emotional speech about his late mother queen elizabeth ii. take a listen. >> three cheers for his majesty the king, hip hip, hooray. hip hip hooray. hip hip hooray will: that was the hip hip hooray after the proclamation but we saw two proclamations with live readings that he's formally king charles iii now and that was held at the royal exchange in london. it was a hip hip hooray and more proclamations read in scotland, wales, and northern ireland later this week. will: king charles attending a
tribute at rare saturday session at parliament and it's hosted by their new prime minister liz truss. senior leaders expected to wear an oath of loyalty and president joe biden yesterday confirming he'll join the royal family for the queen's funeral, which is expected to take place at westminster abby at a ten day period of mourning. good morning and welcome to "fox & friends". rachel: good morning, you guys. is all of the pomp and circumstance and all the ceremony around these proclamations because in the past there was maybe questions about who was going to lead and they had to make it super formal? pete: that's part of what i've taken away from it. the military component and firing of the artillery and troops laying down the arms and effectively taking a knee in front of the new king. there were disputes and it was clear in this line of succession when it was going and it must be proclaimed in all the territories as the news went out
and good morning to all of you. we've been discussing various aspects of it this morning. as americans, should we care? do we care? and if it is important, which i think it is, what aspects of it are as far as importance of the monarchy, the standards it maintains for a society, a defender of the faith, defense of western civilization, and will king charles, king charles iii, is he going to maintain what queen elizabeth did by more or less being a political? some of his comments on climate and others seem to be progressive. will he move in that direction? we want to get to the things that matter to us here in america. rachel: yes. will: i've had complicated personal feelings about this throughout the last several days in that in no small manner -- rachel: let's say he didn't watch the crown. will: listen, i think there's actual substance to take from this and it is this, the united states of america fought a revolution so it did not have to bow to unearned royalty. united states of america fought
a revolution to divorce itself from the idea of a monarchy. that being said, i can also cast my eyes across an ocean and see the value of tradition. i can tie it into, rachel, what you bring up. up, even with the pomp and circumstances which doesn't lend to my own personal affinities and there's a ren ren these are perpetuated over time and the value of repetition and tradition that survives millennia is a sign of if not virtue, value. there is value in anything that can survive. there is value in tradition. rachel: it's interesting you say that value in tradition, understanding it, how it's so embedded into the culture in england, and it's interesting that it was the introduction of two americans who really disrupted this because i think it's in our nature to not understand and fully appreciate what all these traditions mean to the british people and to the
commonwealth itself. pete: one of those traditions i went through a phase where i watched prime minister's questions in parliament. fascinating and a lot of the traviotraditions, will, you're t and a live shot of parliament and i believe there'll be a ceremony including king charles iii as well ask we may dip into that in a moment. you're right, will, there's value in a culture's ability to perpetuate itself and a lot of that comes through civic ritual acknowledging timeless truths or virtue that a culture has held and putting processes in place to protect them. that's what a devout defender ovthe monarchy would say about the monarchy. we don't believe they're better than us per se, but that lineage is part of protecting a civilization that has been powerful, has had merr merit and freed people and made mistakes and done wonderful things. without this, you don't perpetuate that. rachel: part of the title
includes defender of the faith and with that is not just the faith, but the values that christianity, i think, blessed the world with in so many ways. there is questions about what will happen and we'll be talking about that a little bit later on with franklin graham because the queen was famously religious and took her faith very seriously. there are some questions about whether charles is as religious as his mom if at all. he seems to be more in tune with the religion of climate change. will: so, pete, like you, i have at times watched prime minister's questions. i love it because it's a pugilist sport and i wish our country was like that and there's expectation that the united kingdom's new prime minister liz truss will take to a microphone in the very near future. pete: i would remember watching
tony blair do prime minister questions when george w. bush was president and was having to defend the iraq war inside parliament. i remember thinking, what if george w. bush had to do that? he couldn't do it, not the way they do it. their politics allow you to robirobustly defend your positin realtime. rachel: bet there's rhetoric courses and some sort of education classes that are involved in helping people do that. pete: for a moment, if we can, we might as well dip in since we've talked a complete the catch it for a second to see what they're talking about. >> i swear by almighty god i'll be faithful and pledge allegiance to majesty king charles, his heir according to law so help me god.
pete: i believe what we're seeing is -- i heard mention of king james so weari swearing on the bible oath of allegiance and the prime minister has done so and departed. if it changes, we'll let you know. will: king charles iii this morning approving an order declaring the day of queen elizabeth's funeral a public holiday. rachel: the uk will hold a series of events as part of a ten day period of national mourning. pete: halleluiah al -- alex hogan is live from buckingham palace with more. good morning, alex. >> good morning, rachel, will and pete. there's a lot that need to take place for a monarch of traditions including this morning with a kickoff of the ascension ceremony and kicking off officially formalizing the new sovereign, king charles iii. what took place this morning with the hundreds of members that were there part of that council. proclamation was then signed,
including family members like the queen consort and william the now prince of wales. we watch these historic members of the royal family having some of these moments together, new reports that harry was reportedly told to not bring meghan markle to be beside the dying queen. king charles iii did address harry and meghan in his first speech last night wishing them well. world leaders are expressing condolences to the royal family and president biden expected to travel here to london for the funeral and we don't have an exact date for the service as part of the official mourning process, prince phillip's coffin will be moved with the queen so they can lie together. a procession is expected to take place through the city of london and then she will lie in westminster hall for four days, an event that's expected to draw massive crowds of people who will be there honoring the queen. again, the exact date of when this service is expected to take place has not yet been officially announced but as you
can see behind me, so many people have come out today on the first several days of the reign of king charles iii to be here for this moment, to remember the memories that they are making today of being here in person, crowds of strangers united for their love for the late queen and excitement to see the new king. guys, back to you. rachel: alex hogan live in london. thank you, alex. let's bring in will graham. he's the grandson of billy graham and grandson of franklin graham and vice president and associate at the billy graham evangelist ick association. will, great to have you this morning. a lot of people in america don't really know how interesting and deep the relationship was between billy graham and the queen mother. do you want to talk a it almoste bit about that before we reflect on the new role of the new king before we talk about his role in
defender of the faith. >> good morning, everyone, and thank you. yes, my grandfather and the queen had a special relationship, but it actually started with the queen's mother. that's when he was the first -- she was the first royal that my grandfather, billy graham, would meet. my grandfather was having tremendous meetings, especially in 1954 and 1955 and because of that, he was up in scotland and it was one of the very first times that the bbc put a religious program on air live from calvin hall up in glasgow and it was a tremendous meeting and the queen watched it. the next year, 1955, the queen would ask my grandfather to come and visit her and they would visit over three times in 1955 for the very first time. rachel: wow. will: that's fascinating history
you bring to us this morning. l also if you would, we'd love to talk about the role of king charles, not simply sitting on a secular throne but actually a religious throne as defender of the faith. in fact this morning he invoked that role and talked about god. let's listen. >> and in carrying out the heavy task that's been laid upon me unto which i now dedicate what remains to me of my life, i pray for the guidance and help of almighty god. will: there he asked for guidance and help from almighty god. will, talk to us about role of defender of the faith. >> yeah, that's something that most probably americans aren't familiar with as the head of the state, the queen that now passed away, now king charles iii, he takes on the head of the church of england. so for the church of england, he's the top of the chain.
so that title is given to him as the defender of the faith and the queen, i know that she did that very, very well over her 70 years as the head monarch. she did a tremendous job and she would talk about her faith with jesus christ and how that would sustain her and gave her a fr framework to work by and that's what i believe we pray for as king charles iii as he takes on this mantle. it's going to be different now and we want to be praying for him just as he asked for prayer to be praying for this as he heads up the church of england and to be the head of that and so that's what the defender is, to promote christianity everywhere he goes and to protect the faith there in england. will: the story you told of your grandfather's relationship with the queen is a heartening one. pete: i didn't realize the depth billy graham and his crusades in
evangelical outreach had an impact on the queen of england to the extent she invited him over and he became a counselor to her. you spoke a bit about it with king charles but do you have the sense he has that same -- no one can read into someone's heart. i understand that. if you're looking into the church and perpetuation of christianity. are we in a precarious moment and he's been with the queen for 50 years in watching her. do you have a sense he has the same commitment of being head of the church? >> pete, that's something i'm not going to be able to answer quite. i've never talked to him and don't know him personally. i've heard him speak very little on the subject. you know, mainly because that wasn't his role. he is now the head of that so we'll have to see what that takes place, but she had a very, very strong commitment to christ, the queen did. that's what we pray for king charles iii as well, that he'll
have a strong commitment to christ and look to the bible and look to the jesus as the source of all this as source of authority, and to live by his example. you know, jesus had great words, great wisdom, and a great example to live by just as the queen did, she lived by that, looked to that, and i pray that king charles iii will do the same. pete: will graham, thank you for jumping on and sharing your history and perspective on this. thank you. >> thank you. pete: he answered the impossible question but that's what we've been discussing this morning is are we seeing the -- is queen elizabeth the last gasp of that defense of christianity of the west's role and then you open it up to king charles and then william who may be more on the progressive side of --
rachel: for sure. pete: there's a lot of uncertainty. rachel: there are hints and again, he said once in an interview he'd be a defender of the faiths with an s at the end. again, we don't know. pete: mark said that could be the different churches maybe and london is increasingly becoming in certain neighborhoods a more muslim city. we know that. in certain neighborhoods. rachel: and europe is a very secular. pete: yes, what could defender of the faiths mean? is there pride in that lineage? those are real questions going into the 21st century. rachel: absolutely. very, very important questions. will: we'll now transition back here to the united states of america where coming up, we're going to be talking about vice president kamala harris issuing fresh attacks on the supreme court following the roe v wade reversal. >> i think this is an activist court. pete: we'll discuss that, plus the nfl is back on fox with a

podcast called unbreakable. people can identify with your story, jay. >> yeah, i'm not a therapist. i'm not a doctor. i'm not your parent. i'm just a dude who's messed up who's learning how to be good with his messed upness. for years and years and i know everybody looks at me going how can this guy be living with what i call the gray, depression anxiety. my life is great, but between my ears sucks, and i didn't sign up for this. this isn't something i asked for. i'm -- i think now i kind of look at it for like years i was cursed with depression and anxiety and i feel maybe god blessed me where it because i can help lead others out of their gray and into the blue. now since i've opened up about this, my world has really shifted where impact on hearing able to now be a voice for a lot of people. i want to give mental health words. we talk about mental health but who describes it? i want to be able to describe it and we can start having these conversations so we can start
existing in the blue. when you live in the blue, oh my god, it's a much better way to wake up in the morning. >> that's a nice way to put it. you look at you, jay, and you think you've got everything. the average person wouldn't think, he's got anxiety problems? i never would have seen that coming. but then by writing this book and now this new podcast, there's a lot of people out there that don't talk about their anxiety and they've got it and now they've got somebody to talk to because you understand exactly what they're going through. >> you know what, un until i wre this book, none of my teammates know i have a panic attack and anxiety attack every time i'm on television from 2005 till now. i suffered in silence and for years thought i was having a heart attack. i didn't know what it was. now i can talk about t i have my teammates, my friends that are there and willing -- i will tell you this, for everybody at home listening to this, every single person that i've opened up to about my gray, my gression, my
anxiety. every one of them, it's drawn us closer together. no one said suck it up. no one said, come on jay, you're overreacting. we're all going through something these days. whether it's my level of clinical depression and anxiety and social media makes us think our lives suck. we're all left out of something and it's not real. we're comparing ourselves to everybody else's filter and fraction of a day and on twitter people beat up on each other. i want to be the voice that allows us to have conversations with our daughters and sons and husbands and wives and moms and dads and hoping for me i need a team, i'm hoping by this podcast i can open up and get more teammates in because as much as thyme trying to help everybody else, i'm still a work in progress and trying to get help myself. >> got to check out his new podcast, wherever you get your podcasts. it's called unbreakable. jay glazer, thank you very much for joining us. have a blue day. >> i am, man. hey, this started my day off

forget, always remember" gets stronger. students in massachusetts are doing just that. after being commissioned to create a sculpture using a piece of steel from the rubble at ground zero. that sculpture is now installed at the new police station. joining us live are the police chief kevin anderson. metal fabrication structure and navy chief steve mansfield and the regional technical high school graduates that helped make the sculpture including mallory baldinger and amber donald. let me start with you, ken, as the chief. what does it mean to see your community be willing to build a beautiful sculpture that helps people remember what happened on 9/11? >> pete, as you know, almost 21 years ago today, our lives changed forever, and it was very
important for the police department to have a memorial to honor those who rushed in to danger to save innocent lives and it was a great community project for us to work on and the students did a wonderful job building this memorial. pete: neil, you're a retired navy chief, you're the lead instructor. talk to me about this sculpture, where the idea came from, how it came together. >> sure, peter, first of all, it's a vocational education and hands-on training with the education where the young men and women train to go into building trades and welding and fabricating and sheet metal and piping and mr. baldinger, mallory's dad and the chief approached us with the school and said with your skill sets could you fabricate and weld a sculpture? we embrace that had and the students here to my left and
right, took a design, an element, and they just -- it was very easy on my part in terms of getting a sculpture together. of course it was 100% the student's interaction with it. pete: now let me go to one of the students then. mallory, you heard the police chief, even now 21 years later talk passionately about the events of 9/11. you're a bit younger than the rest of us. it's something you read about and hear about more than experienced. talk to us about what building this sculpture, how it helped you connect to the events of 9/11. >> honestly, it kind of just brings you closer to the people around you. i mean, building this sculpture, we met so many people who told us about their lives and what happen that had day, and it just kind of makes you feel closer to an event that i wasn't even alive for so it's like something that you should remember forever because it brought people
together and that's what the sculpture we made is doing, it's bringing people together and being able to help with that is like a great honor. pete: very well said, mallory. amber, same question to you. i don't know if you were alive when 9/11 occurred or not either. why do we need to remember and why are sculptures like this important? >> definitely, i wasn't alive when it happened. we grew up hearing stories about it and our parents telling us about it and older siblings but we weren't alive to experience the feelings that everyone -- how it was affecting everyone. we just didn't experience it quite the same way. i totally agree with what mallory said. i mean, being able to be apart of this project and research it and talk with people there, it definitely brought us closer as a group and metal fabrication program but from generation to generation. as a younger generation and older generation, it really brought us together in an emotional way. pete: chief, you've got to be proud to be protecting the community that has that kind of peak spl spective.
real quick -- perspective. real quick, last word. >> absolutely. i couldn't have been more honored to work with them. they've built a long standing, beautiful 9/11 memorial that will be able to be seen for generations. thank you all. pete: chief, thank you and your department for your service and everything you stand for and your desire to get something like that in your new station that remembers 21 years later those horrific events but the heroism that came from it. chief kevin anderson, neil, mallory, and amber, thank you so much for sharing this with us this morning. >> thank you. >> thank you. pete: all right, coming up, there is officially a new king of england today with proclamations earlier this morning. our next guest is a photographer who's helped capture the royals and the queen's 70-year reign. he joins us next. >> so, this day of day most memorable comes to an end and with it begins a new era, new elizabeth age. the love and hope of all the
sovereignty, which have now passed to me. rachel: newly proclaimed king charles iii paying tribute to his late mother, queen elizabeth and her incredible life of service, which included seeing her nation through wars and countless political eras. our next guest captured many of these remarkable moments with his camera. royal photographer christopher jackson joins us now. christopher. welcome. i understand that one of your photos was selected to make the announcement about the queen's death on social media. how honored are you that that happened? >> good morning, rachel. thank you. it's certainly been a surreal, sad, and historic couple of days here in london. it's always a huge honor to photograph the queen and it's always been a huge honor and she's incredibly stoic and iconic figure.
iconic is an understatement when talking about the queen. she has, you know, been there for as long as anyone can remember and with her passing, there's a huge sense of sadness amongst the british public, the commonwealth, and the world. rachel: how has social media changed the job of the royal photographer? >> i think social media is, you know, it's obviously sort of coming into play over the last 10, 20 year, and i think it has changed the way that members of the public are viewed and disseminated and it's a important way for the royal palace to get their message out to the public at large and an efficient way to get announcements and official portraits and notes released and so. it's important. i think it's the way that the members of the public disseminate information. most people go to instagram or twitter. it's on important thing. in terms of my job and the taking of the if i cantures, not
a -- pictures, not a human huget has changed. rachel: feel like it makes people feel were connected to them and they know them more because there seems to be more photos and access than in the past. the queen is famous for being stoic and, you know, not making it about herself and yet you captured her in some moments that were difficult. i found that really poignant. talk to us a bit about some of the photos. we'll put some of them up. >> that's kind, rachel. yes. that first one, the queen amongst the poppies at the tower of london at insulation called blood, sweat and land our sea is red and every one of the poppies represents one of the fallen in the war. that was a particularly poignant place because remembering those who sacrificed was an important part of the queen's duties and to capture here in that sense was important and poignant and she's always remembered as being
the most important queen in her diary every year and in the last couple of years, she handed over the duties of laying the where's on behalf of the nation to the prince of wales and that was a good example of the first kind of succession happening. this picture you're looking at now, that was from treaping the color during the covid years from 2020 where there was a paired down ceremony and it represents the queen's official birthday and that was taken in the grand winds castle and managed to get soldiers walking past the queen and getting a bit of movement in there. she's an incredible person to photograph and it's been a huge honor over the last couple of decades to capture her image and having a front row seat to the historic moments and looking at her images in front of the world
is incredibly exciting. rachel: it's incredible and you'll have more photographs to take of the new king and the family and there never seems to be enough royal news so i think you have a lot of job security there. christopher, so great for you to join us and we appreciate you sharing those beautiful photos with us. >> thank you, rachel, thank you so much. will: thank you, rachel. a few headlines for you starting with five russian officials are in custody for allegedly calling for the arrest of vladamir putin. they wanted putin to be charged with treason due to russian losses in the invasion of ukraine and the economic impact on the federation. the suspects that are local lawmakers in st. petersburg could face the death penalty under russian law. new york governor kathy hochul declaring a polio state of emergency. the virus was detected in waste water in several areas including rockland county and most recently in long island and the

ripping up major rip currents cs and beach goers need to be careful before going in the water. hurricane kay made landfall in mexico and sandbags and dunes going up as they pre-fair for storm surge and flooding. heavy rain battering parts of san diego county and rick reichmuth is tracking that for us now. >> yeah, not used to p that weather in parts of california and then out across the east coast and the climate logical peak of hurricane season and
category 2 hurricane earl and pulling away from the eastern sea board and swells will move in towards the eastern sea board and cause rough seas probably out in the beaches and be very careful and pay attention. make sure you're only swimming where there's a life guard around. we'll watch one wave pull off of africa but i don't think we'll see anything significant from that. this right here is what's kay, it'll continue bringing that rain today across parts of southern california and into arizona and those winds continue. be very careful, especially out across the beaches as well. all right, back to you, will. will: all right. thank you so much, rick. i was supposed to be in austin today with my beloved texas longhorns set to face off against the alabama crimson tide noon eastern on fox. instead i'm with you here in new
york hoping that unranked texas can pull off a massive upset against no. 1 alabama. do i have a prayer? let's ask fox college football sports analyst brady quinn joining us now. brady, i know your answer and i don't want to ask the question. are you even wearing crimson with us this morning? >> you know, i don't control the wardrobe. that's our tremendous wardrobe department and they'll probably take this, will. you have a chance. that's why we play the games. there's a tremendously talented quarterback and the coach knows alabama from his time coaching under nick sabin and he'll have things in store for them. it's going to be tough. they're a young roster and alabama is a program that's trying to find redemption from the loss to georgia in the national championship game and texas is trying to decide whether or not they're back. this game could at least stay close in the first half and second half you'll start see alabama wear down texas.
will: okay, one day, some day soon, this will be a conference rivalry. this will be a conference game. today it's a rare, nonconference at least clash of big programs in terms of brands. not at the same level to your point. alabama's not just number one, they're mad and angry and have a heisman winning quarterback. texas is young. describe for me, brady, how texas makes -- not even asking for a win, how does texas make this game close. what has to happen? >> on offense, starting with quinn, he has to take care of the football and he'll deal with push. will anderson jr. is the best edge rusher in football and should have been the heisman last year and on the other side they combined for 26 sacks last year and taking on offensive line of four of five starters are underclassmen and he'll be under duress and has to cake tae care of the football and find ways on his leg and the talented running back at texas, he'll have to carry the load and get
him outside of the perimeter to make big plays, make people miss and not put too much pressure on quinn in his second start. for the texas defense, you've got to hold on. you're taking on the reigning heisman trophy winning quarterback bryce young and he's the best in college football in my opinion. you have to hang on and hope to contain them. will: quinn was a five star plus number one high school quarterback recruit in the nation. he'll throw picks and interceptions and should be entertaining for awhile. i was supposed to be in austin with you this morning. i would love to know what the environment is like in austin. only 8: 8:00 in the morning the. what's it like there in austin? >> a lot of long horn fans are here walking around, taking in the environment. but, yes, we've seen our fair share of roll tide coming become too. it's mostly dominated by the texas long horn fans hoping for that upset but at the end of the
day, the only people you'll hear cheer asking probably that alabama -- cheering is like that alabama crimson tide. will: it's like talking to the undertaker and this is the only time i can do it, hook 'em horns and later it'll be roll tide. thank you, brady. we'll be watching you on the big noon show today on fox at 10:00 a.m. eastern and afterwards stay on fox to watch texas take on alabama noon eastern. coming up, big guest ahead in the final hour of "fox & friends" as our coverage continues of king charles iii ascension to the throne. ♪
[cheers and applause] pete: notice the date, september 13, 2001, two days after 9/11. queen elizabeth broke 600 years of royal tradition to honor the victims of the terror attacks in the u.s. by directing the cold stream guard to play the american national anthem during the changing of the guard at buckingham palace. we certainly had a friend in queen elizabeth. as we prepare to mark 211 years since the attacks -- 21 years, the united kingdom mourns the loss of the queen and welcomes in king charles iii. he was officially proclaimed king this morning in london. >> three cheers for his majesty, the king. rachel: king charles paying tribute to his mother and acknowledging the great responsibility that comes with his new title. >> and in carrying out the heavy
task that has been laid upon me and to which i now dedicate what remains to me of my life, i pray for the guidance and help offal mighty god. rachel: a second proclamation was held at the royal exchange in london. >> hip hip -- >> hooray! >> hip hip -- >> hooray! will: president joe biden yesterday confirming he will join the royal family for the queen's finallal expected to take place at westminster abbey after ten cays of -- days of mourning. let's bring in martha maccallum and steve hilton, host of the next revolution here. glad to have you with us this morning. martha, we'll start with you. we've talked this morning about the pomp and circumstance. we talked about the value and the tradition of the monarchy. we've also talked about it going
forward. what is your thought, what is the major focus, what should be the major focus in this morning, in your estimation, martha? >> well, will, good to be with you all. ing i was so struck by that clip that you just played outside of buckingham palace on september 13th, 2001. it brings tears to my eyes. i think that that outpouring and the playing of the u.s. national anthem in that that moment, it really speaks to what happens when there is a threat from outside and how the countries have pulled together, how they pulled together in world war ii through lend-lease and through the allies fighting together to overcome hitler and japan in world war ii. so there are moments that really test these bonds in an existential way. and i think that we live in a world where these kind of threats exist, where we've seen diminished power in the united
kingdom and some might say in the united states to some extent as well as there's a recalibration of the power centers around the globe. so this is interesting, it's moving to watch what we're seeing here today, but it is sort of reflective of the underpinning of western civilization, of the values that our countries were founded under and what it means in the world. so that clip, i think, is very significant. and i think the fact that you see british flags flying in washington, d.c. and different places in the united states speaks to how important this bond is. and we'll see, you know, going forward what the relationship is like. i imagine it will continue to be strong and, hopefully, reinforced. but queen elizabeth has been a driving force between that u.s.-u.k. relationship and the depth of it over all these years. rachel: so interesting. we're going to bring in steve hilton, martha. steve, you are a former british citizen. you are now an american citizen. what is this moment like for someone like you?
do you have a nostalgic feeling about it or just seeing people bow before the new, you know, king, does it make you go, you know what? i actually feel really american. i don't know how you feel about that. >> well, so many mixed emotions. basically, the way you just put it is kind of how i feel, to be honest with you. [laughter] i tear up now, you were just discussing that moment with the star spangled banner playing in london. i get teary eyed now all the time when i hear that anthem played in our country, particularly july 4th and those occasions. this is such an a incredible moment with so much happening in the u.k. martha, i'm sure, feels it very strongly coming from the people there. and i think what is interesting to me about this exact moment, literally this morning, is the way that we are seeing in realtime national moods take shape, the way they can shift and be defined almost
imperceptibly but you can see it. for example, if we think back just a couple of days now to thursday when we got the news of queen elizabeth's death, all through that day you could feel -- andic hear it and was talking to people about it in the u.k -- the sense of unease, a word you heard all the time was unsettled, how unsettling this was. a real sense of, well, what is going to happen now. and just with the way i think the first day of the new king's reign went, the way he was greeted so warmly outside buckingham palace and then the way he really delivered that first speech, so emotional but also so strong and clear and solid in his new role, i think it really made people feel, wow, it's gonna if be okay. we've got a new king. we are sad, of course, about what happened and we revere the life of queen elizabeth, but it's gonna be okay.
that national mood, i think, shifted so quickly. and i think everyone in america should be really pleased to see that, because it is such an important relationship, and we do want both countries always to be in a situation where where we're feeling confident and good about the future. pete: well said. martha, you know, we're all, we all grew up, all of us on this couch, with only queen elizabeth. so i have no context in my own life of how queens or kings of england conducted themselves. she stayed apolitical, as you talked about, more or less. but we've seen king charles when he was prince charles dabble into politics whether it's climate change, whether it's immigration. is there anything in the past of kings or queens where they would move into taking a side with a prime minister or taking a side on an issue, or was queen -- so was queen elizabeth an aberration? was she an outlier, or was she the standard for how kings and queens normally operate in the
political realm? >> you know, it's a very interesting question, pete. i think back to henry viii and his division with the church. there have been very deep schisms that have had political nature to them over the course of british history, but i think in modern british history, you think about elizabeth, you think about her father, going back to queen victoria, really her life -- queen victoria was her great, great grandmother -- they were very careful to walk in an apolitical lane. and i think they saw it not only as important to the country, but important to their own preservation so that they would be able to maintain their strength as a cultural, traditional head of state without being tossed out potentially by political whims. so i think it's helped them in their perseverance. i i think you're going to see charles do that as well. i think there were probably times in his life where he was, you know, he had been waiting around so long for his major
role which he took this morning that he wanted to sort of strike out and show his independence perhaps in some ways. i can't get inside his head, but it would appear he wanted people to see his individuality perhaps. i think you're going to see that a hemmed in because of the the reasons that i talked about, because of that civility and continuity that is able to be preserved based on that detachment from politics. pete: it's a great point. there is both a nationalistic reason for it but also a self-preservation reason. and let me follow -- [laughter] real quick, steve, to you, because there's a lot of stability that queen elizabeth brought and a lot of instability that has come with the trials and tribulations of harry and meghan. here's piers morgan talking about what he thinks king charles should do about all that. >> harry has wife called meghan and, all right, he says he used the word love, but they're building their life outside in another country. and i think beneath all this
there was a pretty clear message from charles that he's getting a bit fed up with this rival royal family. there's the most gigantic riff now at the very heart of our new monarch. charles is distraught, he's incredibly hurt by what's been happening with his son and his daughter-in-law, and so he's putting all his chips on william, and i think that's the right thing to do. if i were him, i'd go further. i would strip meghan and harry of all their titles, period, done. take them away. rachel: steve, what do you make of that? first of all, i love hearing pi reasonable cares -- piers talk about it, he says that prince charles should go even further -- king charles should go even further and just strip them of their titles. >> well, look, i grew up in sussex, the place the titles refer to, so i kind of feel pretty strongly about it.
i think right now what you saw from king charles yesterday was an incredibly clear signal that the9 royal family really is going to be focused on all people, four adults, himself and the queen consort, camilla, and the new prince and princess of wales, and that's it. i thought that was really clear the way he talked about and madt the new titles for those people. and so i think that's really i think is going to be a focus on the positive, few -- if you like. here is the core royal family. i think he will be wanting to just move on from the division and not get bogged down can -- and not open up new rifts right now by trying to make any changes. but i think, you know, the truth is there will be a lot of support for the kind of thing piers was talking about. but i don't think that the king will want to make things any worse than they already are and
will want to focus on establishing the way he wants to do the job. and i think to what martha was saying earlier, i think he clearly understands that. i thought it was very interesting that in that speech yesterday he signaled he understands a change in the role where he said he's not going to be able to spend the time and energy on not just the organizations that he's been leading and working with, for example, the prince's trust, an amazing organization i've worked with a lot in the past that does such a great job for disadvantaged young people particularly from urban areas and in the city, helping them start businesses. really amazing work that charles has done there. he also said he's not going to be focused so much on the issues. and i think that was a very clear signal particularly on the issue of climate change which is easily the most divisive and contentious of the issues that a he's been focusing on. i don't think he wants to be divisive at all or contentious. i think he's perhaps hoping that since we've seen this outpouring of i affection and reverence for
the queen and the way she carried out the public duties so selflessly, that harry and meghan might take a bit of a lesson from that, perhaps change the way that they've been conducting themselves too without him having to do anything as drastic as piers was suggesting. we'll see. pete: -- will: martha, we've talked throughout the morning about the relationship between queen elizabeth and various american presidents. in fact, let's take a quick look, if we might, at one of the moments of personality between queen elizabeth and president ronald reagan. >> mr. president, thank you for the very kind things you have said tonight. it is only nine months since we had the great pleasure of having you and mrs. reagan to stay with us at windsor. now we have had the memorable experience of visiting you in your home state of california and of seeing your ranch at
santa barbara. i knew before we came that we had exported many of our traditions to the united states, but i had not realized the that weather was one of them. [laughter] [applause] will: martha, if you would, you reflected on it earlier, lyndon baines johnson, the only president that did not meet with queen elizabeth. what do you -- joe biden, king charles. do we expect the same type of relationships we saw with queen elizabeth and the american presidents? >> you know, i think just watching that, it's just extraordinary, the bank of internal knowledge that she had in her, in her heart, in her mind having spent time with this entire span of united states presidents and leaders from all over the world. she spent time with mother
teresa, she traveled to india, south africa, nelson mandela. embodied in this one person, she had this extraordinary wealth of experience which is just a phenomenal -- starting with winston churchill and world war ii all the way through to the present day. so i don't -- there's not a comparable human being who has that kind of wealth of experience, and i think that's why you see this as such a significant moment. i mean, if you try to think to yourself, you know, the next funeral, what would be the larger event that would be even comparable to this, it really is difficult to think of anyone if who would even come in as a number two. that being said, i think charles, obviously, doesn't have the expanse of all of that. he grew up her son, so he has the wealth of her knowledge and wisdom that he's garneredded over the years by being her son. and what his relationship will be like with president biden, they have met in the past as the president said. he will be coming here to the funeral, no doubt. i don't think there's any head of state that would turn town
the invitation to come to this funeral. i think you're going to have a lot to be asking to come who are maybe not on the list, but it's an important relationship, to be sure. i think the star power remains in william and kate. so when they -- it will, obviously, be a big deal when charles and camilla come to the united states. it's going to be in terms of the glam or and the star power, i think that's going to continue to be the haven of william and kate now the prince and princess of wales and, clearly, the future of the monarchy. they're the star power, there's no doubt about it. rachel: yeah, i think you're right about that, martha. there's no question that they're hoping that they will modernize and make the monarchy more palatable for younger generations, william and kate. steve; i want to go back a little bit. we saw some images there of president donald trump when he made that famous visit to visit with the queen, and meghan markle as an american princess famously didn't go to the event
with donald trump, again, making it about herself, making it about politics. is that really what we need, what prince charles wants to move on from, that sort of making it about yourself in honor of the memory of his mother who, you know, tried so hard to make that relationship between america and great britain strong and warm regardless of who was in office? >> that's exactly right. and i think that they will be working very hard on that. and, by the way, that exact same point applies to the heads of government as well, because often you find in these important relationships that you find the u.s. president who, of course, is the head of government, the executive branch as well as the head of state, but in the u.k. the role is split. you have the monarch and then the head of government is the prime minister. up you'll find you have a prime
minister from -- often you'll find you have a prime minister from a different political party x they've got to figure out a way to work with the president whichever party they're from. i saw that a paris han. and they -- firsthand. it's such an important relationship, and the head of state can really help make that work particularly if there's some kind of political tension there. so i think it's incredibly important. and to your point about the way that charles will be looking to follow in the example of his mother, that was very, very clear, really clear from his remarks yesterday. that's why i thought that speech was so powerful. pretty short but incredibly powerful. that really came out so strongly. i think that's been the reaction. that's why you have this depth of feeling in the u.k. and around the world, because it was that selflessness, in a sense the opposite of the way that so many people in the royal family and elsewhere carry out their lives these days in public and on social media and making it
all about themselves, their feelings all the time and so on. the exact opposite of how the queen was. and i think that the fact that this is so prominent in the public reaction to her death, and he emphasized it in his speech yesterday, i think you're exactly right. that's what i think is the sort of key aspect of her legacy that he will want to emulate and encourage others to emulate. pete: well said, both of you. steve hilton, martha maccallum are, thank you for joining us on this saturday. middle of the day in london. martha, steve, thank you. >> thanks. pete: you got it. by the way, queen elizabeth ii: for the love of country is available now on fox nation. everything about her life and her legacy, you can find on fox nation. rachel: i love it. has all the old footage, old clips from her old speeches, it's really great. fantastic. will: coming up, the special master showdown between the trump legal team and doj, both suggesting rival candidates to

duckduckgo: privacy, simplified. pete: we're back with a fox news alert. funeral services fehr lie ya fletcher are set to begin in just one hour at the same church where the murdered mother met her husband and was married. and the man accused of carrying out the heinous crime is adding to his already lengthy rap sheet. alexandria hoff. reporter it doesn't take away the court's ability to identify him as someone they know well. this is really stunning. between the ages of 11-16, henderson stood before a judge 17 times including when, at 14 year withs to old, he was charged with a juvenile act of rape against an unnamed male. and in 2000 at 16 years old, he pleaded guilty to the gunpoint
abduction of a prominent memphis attorney and served 20 of a 24-year sentence. 38-year-old henderson has now been charged in the murder, fletcher was killed friday after she was abducted by henderson while out on an early morning jog. now, in addition, henderson is facing unrelated aggravated kidnapping and rape charges for a separate crime committed last september. fletcher will, again, be laid to rest today with the funeral held this morning. the 34-year-old was the the granddaughter of a late billionaire, but far more importantly, the mother of two little boys. fletcher was also a teacher. she was seen here in this video singing "this little light of mine" to her students alongside her dog. plenty of questions have swirled over why her accused killer did not serve the full 24 years that he was sentenced to to back in 2000. after a back and forth with shelby county's new district attorney, hennerson was not grant parole in 2020, instead,
court document units hoe he was credited for over 500 days of time served and other credit incentives may have been applied. will? will: thank you. the department of justice and former president trump both submitting proposals for special master candidates to review evidence seized in the raid of mar-a-lago last month. the filing comes just a day after the doj appealed federal judge eileen cannon's ruling that a special master was necessary. here to react, fox news legal analyst gregg jarrett. gregg, before we get into the candidates being put forward by both sides, can i ask you this: does it matter? has the fbi and the doj not already gone through all of the documents? can a special master truly at this point set aside knowledge within the documents? >> i am absolutely confident that what merrick garland has represented to the court, that nobody on the investigative team at the doj has looked at these confidential documents, attorney-client privilege -- not
to mention executive privilege -- i have no doubt they looked. and, in fact, the judge, judge cannon, pointed out in a ruling that, you know, you've made a false representation here that we know at least of two incidents in which investigators had already looked at the privileges documents. so, yeah, they've already seen the stuff. which invites violates the -- invites the question, is that what merrick garland was really after with this broad, expansive search? did he go in there wanting to know the communications between trump and his lawyers relative to a wide variety of things? that's a pretty good bet. will: right. so, gregg, let me just follow that up out of my own limited knowledge here. let's say a special master does come in and is appointed and sents certain documents off limits -- sets certain documents off limits. does that compromise potential future investigations by the doj, and this is where i'm a little bit over my skis, fruits
of the poisonous tree? you saw things you shouldn't see, you cannot now, therefore, pursue that investigation. >> yes. it would be up to the trial court judge to make that determination. but i also suspect that somewhere down the road the trump legal team will make a more agrandsonnive -- aggressive motion that this was an unlawful search and seizure under the fourth amendment because, read the warrant. it was a general warrant. that's strictly forbidden by the fourth amendment. and you're right, the exclusionary rule dictates that materials unlawfully obtained may not be used in any criminal proceeding. so it may be more than simply the privileged documents. it could be everything. will: so i want to ask you this, gregg, while i have you this morning: what happened to the supreme court leader? justice neil gorsuch said that there is an investigation going in, that chief justice john roberts has put together some
sort of insight, but a shockingly long period of time has been going on, gregg. and from the outside at the very least, it seems a lack of interest or, at the minimum, a lack of accountability. what's going on with identifying the dobbs' case's supreme court leaker? >> well, there are a couple of problems. i've never been convinced that chief justice john roberts really wants to know who the leaker is, to get to the bottom of it. i think he would prefer that everybody just move on and overlook it. the such a humiliation and embarrassment for the court. if they do identify the leaker, yeah, those are crimes. i mean, it's -- that's the theft of government property, and it's obstruction the of justice, interfering with a legal proceeding. and whoever the leaker is not only should lose their license to practice law, but should be criminally prosecuted. will: right. >> but, you know, because the supreme court didn't bring in the fbi or federal marshals, instead had their own
investigation, you know, i'm not sure they're confident to accomplish it. will: yeah. you would think, by the way -- can you're right about the disbar. how about losing your job? i think we would notice, right, if a concluder had lost their job in the -- clerk had lost their job in the last couple of months. so the leaker, assuming it's a clerk, is still there. >> yeah, except there is a turnover at the end of term of most of the clerks -- will: is that during the summer, gregg? >> you have a mass exit and new ones coming in, so it's really hard to determine it from that. and it could have been somebody who's not a clerk -- will: right, right. >> an employee of the court who had an agenda. will: really quickly, is that turnover in clerks over the summer? is that when it would have happened? >> yeah, usually you start a new term with a new set of clerks. sometimes there's a holdover but not always. will: okay. it also could have been one of the justices themselves, but we'll never know unless we get
some accountability. gregg jarrett, great conversation. thank you. coming up, kick charles iii -- king charles iii is set to meet with the new prime minister, liz truss. our royal coverage continues. ♪ ♪ e world trade center. this can't possibly be an accident. look at the sky. it's beautiful. i had in my mind that this was an attack right away. you saved so many lives that day. where were you when the towers came down? i hear this loud noise. i look up and it was the north tower coming down. and i can just remember the huge antenna imploding into the building. i looked up and i said, i'm not going to outrun this. i dove under an apparatus there on the corner of west and vesey. awaited the dust cloud. right here. right here. i was in my house in the south tower, came down, and i received a phone call from a firefighter. he said to me, frank, it's really bad down here. i said, i know. and he goes, no, you don't understand.

how these things unfold and why. >> good morning to you all, yes, from london. pete: good morning. >> this is moving history, quite literally. the first time we've seen this, obviously, in 70 years, so really it's brand new to all of us, you know? we may have read about this in the history books, but we've never seen it because, obviously, we've never seen the transition of monarchy before. as you saw earlier today with the accession and king charles -- we keep wanting to call him prince charles -- now he has a meeting with our brand new british prime minister, the right honorable liz truss. what a week for her. let's give her congratulations. she has a tough time at the moment with the cost of living crisis -- [laughter] but now doing all of this in the first week? wow, quite difficult, to say the least. rachel: you know, neil, we're going to talk with you about situation with meghan and harry and how they're being treated differently in the eyes of -- or in the state by the new king
charles in terms of how he's referring to will with y'all -- william and kate. i have a curiosity. i mean no disrespect, i know we're talking about the queen's passing, but i'm curious the insight into how the new king charles will be dealing with the problem of prince andrew. >> well, a good question, rachel. and, you know, the difficulty is that, you know, prince andrew has obviously become, you know, shall we say, persona non grata within the british monarchy right now. we do know that he wished to sort of come back in some form. now, the only way back, i believe, that the royal family would be interested in would be charitable works underground. you know, when i say that, you know, seeking no publicity and doing good works on behalf of them, which is possible. the problem that you have now is a that the monarchy, as we know, is in transition. and because we have a brand new king in charles, he really can't do with anything that could put that into jeopardy. so by reminding people of this
unfortunate incident -- and let's not forget, you know, that whichever way you look at it, there were no formal charges brought dennis -- against the former cook of you're welcome -- duke of york. it was his decision or somebody's decision within there to instruct that payment. but i think that was just damage. but also what i was told was simply this, that they wanted to draw a line under it, obviously, to save the ailing queen any more stress. but more importantly, you know, this was the platinum jubilee year. we couldn't have that hanging around. now, there's no denying that prince andrew's a disgrace, you know, whichever way you look at it, he's in disgrace, but he could climb back in some form. but i don't see that in the next five years, to be honest. will: neil, i'm going to follow up on that. yesterday king charles expressed love to harry and meghan, but he did discuss their royal titles.
we were discussing princess anne, her lineage, her offspring as well. i heard talk of trimming down the monarchy, you know, the number of people within or accepted within or on the public, on the public dole. i'm curious, i'm curious how far it spans and what the actions of the british public is on as the family tree grows and grows, to what extend -- extent is it embraced as part of the british royalty? >> great question end again. i mean, you know, the bottom line is this: with reference to harry and meghan, you know, we're fed up with them. we have this woman, meghan markle, who has openly lied about so many things, lied about not helping with the book, lied about the secret wedding. whichever way you look at it, it's an embarrassment. and what king charles has done is firmly put hem in their box by not referring to them with their titles because, you know, she's doing that herself,
monetizing everything. and i think the bigger problem that you have is that while, you know, charles and anne and all other senior members reached out to them if and wanted to embrace them back in the family, only a couple of -- you know, two weeks ago now meghan issueded that ridiculous statement that she was trying to move on and forgive. forgive what exactly? if you know, they've done nothing wrong, you know? that's the difficulty there. the size of the monarchy itself, another interesting point because, obviously, the cost of living crisis, king charles knows that people are going to be looking at every penny. but if you look at the estimated money that the platinum jubilee itself brought into the country, we're talking billions. now, people say, oh, yes, but it brings in so much money with hotels, industry, you know, all sorts of things affiliate whatted, cinemas, you know, art galleries, they're great for business. people love coming to britain because we have all that pomp and circumstance. it's great. you saw it this morning.
living history. and an even bigger problem shifting forward on that is we have, as you do in your country, lots of people wanting to erase, you know, the history of country. the woke nutters and, you know, there are some people that want to do all of that. we're showing today that this is what the public wants. you know, people do like history, and i think king charles is going to be a great advocate of that moving forward and, hopefully, moving the monarchy into the 21st century in a slimmer way. what you saw referenced yesterday was what his -- he did include originally harry and meghan, but they decided they wanted a better life looking after chickens in california. [laughter] pete: yes. and that will be a huge subplot9 of this, did they move closer to the royal family or eventually away and lose their titles altogether. certainly, sean, we know where you stand on that one. [laughter] appreciate your time this morning. thank you, sir.
>> bye-bye. will: how we stole the national anthem from them, god save the queen, we turned it into our own. i think we need to steal nutters as well. it was a wonderful word. pete: i like that. officially made a word on "fox & friends" weekend. as we continue to monitor the news out of england, another big story here at home. officials at brigham young university say they've completed an investigation into accusations of racial heckling at a volleyball game against duke last month. rachel: rachel richardson claimed byu fans hurled offensive slurs at her during the match, but the university says, quote, we have not found any evidence to corroborate the allegation that fans engaged in racial heckling or uttering racial slurs at the event. will: let's bring in dr. carol swain, senior fellow at the texas public policy foundation. completely as a side note, carol, i watched the documentary
uncle tom the other day, i saw you in the documentary. what a wonderful piece of work and insight into american history. carol, it seems while no one denies the existence of racism in the united states of america, the demand for racism exceeds the supply. >> right. i would agree. and it's very unfortunate that with the crt reasoning for the lived experiences of racial minorities trumps facts and anything else, facts, science, and in this particular case real harm has been done to byu, its students, its faculty and its brand. and instead of duke university clapping back and away from the if false narrative, they are digging in deeper. rachel: yeah. well, let me pick up on that because, you're right, they are doubling down. here's a quote from duke university on this. they say the 18 members of the duke university volleyball team
are exceptionally strong women who represent themselves, their families and duke university with the utmost integrity. we unequivocally stand with and champion them, especially when their character is called into question. duke athletics believes and respects equality and inclusiveness, and we do not tolerate hate and bias. hashtag hate won't live here. will: that is, by the way, just to clarify -- rachel: yeah. will: -- that is a statement by duke put out in response to the byu investigation that interviewed 50 witnesses and collected all forensic materials including microphones and video and found no corroboration of rachel richard ardson's allegation. how does duke dig its heels in and double do down? >> i mean, they're afraid to go against the narrative of black people like the duke athletic director. she's a black woman. the whole idea that she would bring in the team that's only one person that reported, you know, that they heard this
heckling. it hasn't been corroborated by investigations, and so rachel richardson needs to be held accountable -- rachel: right. >> and you would think that any university given the fact that in 2006 they had three white lacrosse players accused falsely of rape and the whole university was getting a black eye, and the university, they backed the allegations against themselves, and that was proven to be false. they should know how byu would feel. it harms the university, it harms the students and the brand. pete: and it ultimately means there is no truth, doctor, because the truth can come out on this, yet duke sides with their truth of one player who they say has incredible integrity. i mean, ultimately, isn't that what it comes down to? this is picking winners and losers based on identity politics, not any fair look at a
situation. >> it rewards these racial hate crime hoaxes because rachel richardson, you know, she was all over the news, she's being hailed as this brave woman. there's no evidence that what she reported actually occurred. i think that it's a disgrace. it is racial double standards. it hurts race relations. the duke university president needs to issue an apology to byu, and he needs to deal with the racism on his own campus and this time, you know, the racism is against byu. and it has caused byu to lose games because south carolina canceled two games that the women's sports team were to have with byu. so, clearly, byu is being harmed. the fan that was falsely ai caused, you know, he was armed. i wish they would file suit against someone.
rachel: carol, i would say it's not just the people involved in this incident, i think the entire country is harmed by this. >> yes. rachel: it is breaking down bonds among americans. it's quite evil, actually. there really needs to be justice on this. carol swain, you're the best. thank you for joining us this morning. will: including real victims of rah racial -- rachel: of course. will: -- racial taunting, harassment. thousand you'll be met with the cry wolf syndrome. and it's not just rachel richardson who deserves accountability, it's all the media members who are absolutely silent now in the face of the truth. rachel: absolutely. will: tomorrow we mark 21 years since the attacks on 9/11, honor those who lost their lives. staff sergeant david bella via and dakota meyer will join us, frank siller, joey jones, shannon bream and maria bart row mow. pete: and we're warming up ahead of tonight's heroes classic with
