Part 14: Dangling Tendrils, Ill-Fitting Gowns, is it Time for a Style Intervention for New Royal Duchess Meghan?

More to come, so, on with the show.

Here is the previous thread:

Quelle surprise -

by Anonymousreply 110/07/2018

With all of the other royals in attendance, including George and Charlotte as page boy and bridesmaid, I don't think Buckaroo will get much attention. The media and the public like younger (30somethings and below) royals to look pretty or beautiful. Failing that, to be wearing something spectacular or extremely entertaining. Meghan has always simply been a WTF. Kate upstaged her and her BFF Jessica Mulroney simply by getting out the car. The mothers who were escorting the child bridal attendants pulled up in four cars at the front of the church, Jessica's in the enter. Jessica swayed up center steps, Pippa-ing her little heart out, but the photogs stampeded after Kate, every media outlet switched to a Kate-centric perspective, and when it did go back to Jessica's backside, Little Charlotte was waving madly from the step above, completely upstaging. I think we've seen every card in Meghan's fashion deck, and it's just boring at this point. She'll go sleeveless or strapless, maybe resurrect her boatneck neckline, slather copious "glow" on her collarbones and face, do her sashay, walk very deliberately and slowly, and give little coy waves to the crowd.

I just don't want Eugenie to play it conservatively. I want her to full Eugenie, and look nothing like Hollywood (I loved the Vogue spread). A lot of the European royal brides have been slender little things, none with Eugenie's hourglass, so I want her to play that up with bells on.

I don't think Charles is going to give the girls the boot. Clearly, they are well-liked among the family. They both have "jobs" and decent trust funds, and both live at Kensington Palace, I believe. Most importantly, they are socially very popular - both are still good friends with Harry's wealthy exes, for instance. Eugenie turned up at Chelsy Davy's jewelry launch. So for the girls, they will add some value to the firm while not costing very much. Meantime, Harry's stock is dropping. I'm sure Charles loves him, but Meghan and Harry have not been covering themselves with glory. I am almost more apprehensive waiting to see what Harry wears to Eug's wedding than I am Markle. He's been a slob lately.

What is going on with Harry that he has gotten so slovenly of late?

R2 - I'm sorry to hammer on this, but could you provide some proof that "Harry stock is dropping"? I've always thought him dumber than a box of rocks, I'm not keen on ginges, he's losing what looks he had rapidly, and I thought his choice of a wife particularly sad and misguided.

But hey, that's just me and this is DL.

Show me a recent YouGov or Opinium-ICM or BMG poll that shows Harry and Meghan well under 50% and I'll believe you. Otherwise, this is just wishful thinking in another echo chamber.

Whoever wrote the story about Eugenie going to Sparkle for wedding advice must in hospital today getting his or her split ribs taped up.

The York girls resented Kate for a good while and may still, Eugenie stepped around Kate in the first Christmas exit from Sandringham church as the photogs mobbed the new Duchess of Cambridge in her charming claret outfit, as Kate stopped to let them get their snaps. You should have seen Eugenie's face as she deliberately finally stepped around Kate so she could make her exit. But at least the York girls can say to themselves, All right, but at least we know it's William's bride and she's going to be Queen. One can only imagine their feelings about the upstart C-list divorced 37 year old biracial climber stealing their thunder . . . .

Go to Sparkle for wedding advice? Yes, and Hansel and Gretel were just out in the woods that day to get some Sunday roast recipes from the local witch.

I think Harry has gay face for days in this gif. It's in the facial expression that finishes it off.

by Anonymousreply 1610/07/2018

No, R15.

This article in the Observer references the Queen's updated (in 2012) "Precedence Of The Royal Family To Be Observed At Court". The curtseying and so forth must be followed at "official events and formal dinners."

Not when two of the parties find themselves crossing paths in the normal course. Of course then the Observer article loses its way and talks about how when the princesses cross paths with Markle when Markle is with Harry - getting the mail, say - they must curtsey, but of course they do not. At court. Official events and formal dinners. That's when.

Local hotels in Windsor are apparently offering bargain prices to entice people to the area for the wedding. I hope the poster on the previous thread who insists Yuge's wedding will be Huge is right, but I really think it's going to be a media confection trying mightily to mimic interest.

Kate is technically required to curtsey to Bea and Yuge IF she is not with her husband, but this is only at public events and so far as I know, it has never happened. Meghan is also required to curtsey to them if her husband is not present.

And Yuge and Bea have never to my knowledge in any photo been seen curtseying to William or Harry or either of their wives.

The Order of Preference is a bit like the Pirate's Code - more like guidelines that are ignored most of the time.

Wow, that article on R22 with the instagram screen shots is really hinting hard at a Meghan/Jessica relationship - romantically.

R24, yep

by Anonymousreply 2510/07/2018

No, Meaghan will not have to curtsey to the York princesses nor will they have to curtsey to her. That's because they have the same rank: Princess of the United Kingdom.

Precedence is not about bowing and curtseying. It's about who gets to enter and/or leave a room first, among other things. If Meaghan and Eugenie were at the same party, Meaghan wouldn't be able to leave until Eugenie did. Of course, if she were there with Harry, the situation would be reversed as then she would be there as his wife.

Agreed R24 R25 re the series of pics at R22 -

jessicamulroney posts: Happy wife happy life #fakehoneymoon.

under her Instagram pic attached below ( one of the pics in R22 's article )

And in this pic, and many many others, they are either wrapped around each other like lovers, or gazing into each other's eyes.

Couple that with their frequent vacations together - just the two of them - one cannot help but conclude that there's more than just a platonic friendship going on.

As has been mentioned numerous times on this thread, Jess's celeb husband Ben is strongly rumored to be gay... it looks as if she's not at all lonely when glued together with MeMe.

btw - The Positano pics were taken a month after MeMe started dating Harry.

Awfully sporting for the Aussie news site to bring this to the attention of those living Down Under...

Meghan us truly vile for throwing herself into Eugenie's wedding plans by claiming they met up at the SoHo Farmhouse to go over wedding details. Eug from the day she was engaged (to someone she dated for FOUR YEARS unlike long distanc short-term arriviste Meg) knew who she wanted to design her gown, what she wanted in a dress, etc. She NEVER needed Meghan's help/

Hell, I'll watch her wedding just to see how the BRF is SO HAPPY about her marrying someone appropriate who belongs in the fam unlike Sashay Meg. Can't wait to see their happy faces unlike the funereal tone of Harry marrying Sparkle.

Willing to place bets now on how Sparkle will attempt to outshine the bride, Kate and every other woman there. And will probably do her hooker walk while being seated while walking down the aisle she did to ALL OF HER ATTENTION in May.

by Anonymousreply 3110/07/2018

I'm thinking that for Eugenie's wedding, unlike the Sparkle / Harry event, there will be a complete, obvious video clip of the classic curtsy/bow moment. With great shots of the Queen's smile and reaction shot.

I remain convinced that whether by subtle private suggestion of someone high on the food chain or deliberately by the media people because of the Sparkle and Harry restrictions on access, the mysterious cut away to a shot from above instead of the classic curtsy/bow show was all but missing.

We shall see.

Meghan is merching Soho House's locations and dumb Harry is willing to go along with it. That DM article making it be about all of the summer where they entertained George & Amal and other celebrity guests. MeAgain merched out SoHo Farmhouse to th4e press.

Here's the thing where we all know its a lie. The article claims that the couple loves taking long walks on the property along with her beagle Guy and their new dog Oz. Meg's DOG IS DEAD. Guy was run over in February by a Kensington Palace Protection car after being loose. Her beloved pooch hasn't been seen since. If Guy the beagle was still with us, Meg would be walking him in dog-loving London to gain the love of the British people. That she would have him dragged up as just hanging out in Oxfordshire on their estate the whole time is a joke. Sparkle's entire "Talk of the Town" in the DM is such total BS, top to bottom.

R26 Yuge and Bea are Princesses of the Blood Royal. They outrank both Kate and MEAgain *unless* their husbands are present. They are not equal in precedence.

“Princesses of the blood Royal, such as Princess Beatrice of York and Princess Eugenie of York, rank above Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge and Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, when the latter are not accompanied by her husbands. When the Duchess of Cambridge or Duchess of Sussex are joined by their husbands, the roles are reversed with the Duchesses outranking the Princesses”

R1 R7 It was mentioned in the last thread but Scamantha never even went to the Kensington Palace gates, the gate she was photographed at was about half a mile way on a private road full of embassies & billionaire's homes. The photos were taken by Splash News a paparazzi company, so were 100% set up and all the gutter press decided to pick the story up & claim she was refused entry (to a place she never even visited) because they are desperate to get a statement out of Meagain about her family and desperate to get a rise out of Harry who they know hates them. KP keep hoping the whole saga will be forgot about but the Press will continue their bullshit in the hopes someone somewhere will give them a big juicy exclusive, it's sad and pathetic on both sides really.

There's a click through slideshow in R41 of her "style transformation" over the years. While not every look in the slideshow is great, there are many, many looks in which Meghan looks stylish, well-dressed, chic with well-fitted clothes. Many of the looks would be absolutely appropriate for the events for which she has recently been so badly dressed. What happened? (Also, for sure she used to have implants).

R13 R14 Those tumblr chicks don't know as much as they think they know. Method of travel depends on why they are travelling, and how the trip is being paid for. It's not just the rank of the travelling party. Either the RF travel budget for Official trips or the Country they are visiting is paying. In each case they've got to be accountable to the taxpayers. According to the Express Will & Kate use private planes a lot but they'd have to justify that before it would be allowed. At the moment we're halfway through the financial year, a lot of the travel budget will have been spent and allocated. So if it is coming from the RF travel budget, they have to stay within the limits hence commercial.

The gallery at R41 shows the Jessica Mulroney effect is truly disastrous for Meghan. She used to dress in colors, clothes that fitted her well, were appropriate for the occasions. You can see Sparkle going towards more plain black and whites as their friendship progressed. Agreed R43, there are SO many outfits in that gallery that would be perfect for occasions she's attended since marrying Harry, but instead her wardrobe has consisted of nothing but ill fitting, dreary colored inappropriate clothes. She knew how to dress once upon a time. Now that she's a royal she's clueless. She needs to ditch that ghoul Mulroney ASAP, but she never will.

by Anonymousreply 5010/08/2018

Wow, I'm not a Sparkle fan, but she looks very good in a lot of those slideshow shots.

One thing, though, given how skinny her legs are (and they are really, really skinny) she should stop wearing shoes with extra straps, criss cross, etc because those non-plain shoes just call attention to her bad legs. The eyes are drawn down to her feet with the odd shoes and that means her bad legs.

by Anonymousreply 5110/08/2018

Well I read some supposedly sourced stuff on tumblr today that I may as well repeat here.

But first, - the tumblr crowd is a royal "fandom". They have opinions. It is all very important to them.

1/Of the anti-Markle crowd (and I found that crowd because she's faker than fake and wanted to read amongst the likeminded), one faction sees Harry as a victim - an heroic victim of the high soap opera stripe who married someone he had grown to hate in order to save something something, noble noble. The people who believe this are never comfortable getting down to the "And how does that work?" conversation. The vague outline is that Meghan has some "info" on the BRF (via Harry - who just made that one little mistake! by telling her!) that must be suppressed. But the BRF is working on things in the background and will emerge victorious!

2/The other factor thinks Harry is a moron, trapped himself into this marriage via the statement to the press, regretted it pretty quickly after he and Megala made their first few post-engagement appearances, but was too chicken shit and ego-driven to back out.

So this latest kind of ties everything together in the form of a pathetic clusterfuck. It's from someone who claims to currently be doing some kind of work for someone high up in Soho House, so they hear dirt.

1) Harry wanted to get married. Not necessarily to Meghan, but to get married. With a quickness. He has the attention span and follow through of a gnat, is jealous of William, and fearful of losing his spotlight. Unsaid is his interest in Invictus is waning plus the continued funding is questionable. Problem is he is not considered marriageable by not just aristo girls and the Lizzy Wilsons of the world, but by many British actresses and celebs (working celebs, with their own income). He was eyeing up likely Soho hostesses. WHY he's not marriageable was not said. I suspect some mix of dimwitted, short-tempered, entitled, alcoholic, erratic, and possibly gay, and not enough money to make it worth someone's while. Plus Brit girls have a better idea of what royal life entails. No fantasies about jewels, private jets and yachts. They know it's a lot of drafty piles in the country and boring "engagements".

to be continued.

by Anonymousreply 5210/08/2018

Part 2: The fun part of this report starts with our Buckaroo. She sold herself to Soho house somewhat as Anna Devrey sold herself to NYC "society". She told them she was an influencer (the Tig), an up and coming hot actress - just what they want in a brand representative. She's got an international contact list, an influential friend (J. Mulroney) and is who potential Soho members want to be. So why not use her as a brand ambassador, publicize her, comp her at the various Soho outposts, and see how it pays off.

True to form for a woman who can get herself into the room but not close the deal (auditions, dates, etc.) it didn't work out as Meghan promised, plus she charged a fuckton of her high end lifestyle expenses to Soho house and ended up owing Soho house a lot of money. One wonders if any of her trips with Mulroney were among these expenses.

To be continued.

by Anonymousreply 5310/08/2018

Part 3: when she hooked up with Harry, Harry blabbed to her about all kinds of things. It's not clear if he told her anything truly fatal to the royal family, or if it would be simply very bad news for him if he were caught out being disloyal to his family, particularly William and Prince Charles, no matter what he was actually saying. If he were disparaging them, and was recorded doing it, that would alienate him from his biggest supporters and make him look like an asshole to the public. So, yes, it was recorded.

Supposedly, it was Markus Anderson who said to Meghan, hey, ride this pony as far as you can take it! Here was an opportunity for her to actually be the influencer she had falsely claimed to be when she initially grifted so much money from Soho (which included paid PR). AND, if her profile got high enough to start merching, she might be able to pay them back.

So she got to hint around on Tig, get on the cover of Vanity Fair, blah blah, until paydirt - Harry made his statement to the press.

To be continued:

by Anonymousreply 5410/08/2018

Part 4: Supposedly marriage was never the original end game. The engagement happened, and the reason she got "appearances" right away was Harry begged his father and grandmother. Meghan wanted to merch with a quickness. But then she decided she wanted to go through with the marriage, and Harry was too vain and cowardly to back out. Supposedly the family (whom Harry did not fully share the extent of what he was recorded saying, just that it would shame him to the public) had some lawyers in the week of the wedding and made Meghan an offer that included a house, but she turned it down. And supposedly the family, including Prince Charles, wasn't exactly killing themselves to stop the wedding. The offer was a gesture, but when it was rejected, the attitude was "This is your mess." And "You made your bed, you're gonna have to sleep in it." IOW, Markle is your problem, we're not going to get you out of it. They went through the motions with her, but in large part are leaving them to it, including their various lame engagements which are only photo ops to keep up appearances. No follow through or true engagement from the happy newlyweds. Supposedly Harry had to beg dad to pay for what he did pay for with the wedding. Charles wants to be fair but Meghan's financial problems are bigger than Charles is willing to handle, so whatever RF money is coming Meghan's way is via Harry, which is why he looks so slovenly and cheap. HE'S cheap, and having to actually use some of his money on her is not a happiness for him.

To be continued.

by Anonymousreply 5510/08/2018

Part 5: Supposedly Harry is being his immature, irresponsible self. Remember he left the army in 2015 and afterwards tagged along with Will and Kate a great deal. He didn't get the solo appearance education and training his brother got, plus he's stupid. So in addition to the rest of it, he's letting Meghan run the appearance show, since the BRF has washed their hands. They have seen something THEY are getting out of it, which is that the Cambridges look GREAT in comparison every time the Hazbeens are in public, so they don't mind that the Harkles are so bad. The Cambridges are the future, not the Harkles.

Of course every time Meghan fucks up it is immediately followed by some story that disses Catherine or another royal, or a story about how Meghan is just too good to be true (Eugenie is consulting her about the wedding, Charles loves her best of all, Harry can't keep his hands off her, blah blah blah). This is supposedly coming from Soho House PR - it is Soho House that pays for Sunshine Sachs. AND, as with the Hobbs Kitchen cookbook, a public royal engagement is followed by a Soho House promotion, as Harry and Meghan went to the Amsterdam Soho house right after the cookbook. Harry is practically working for Soho house at this point.

Nobody wants Meghan to play pregnancy games on the tour coming up, because the only reason these countries agreed to have them (the BRF asked) is in hopes it would boost tourism, and if she suddenly says she's going to opt out and play it safe on a beach in NZ cause she's pregnant and Tonga and Fiji are too Zika-riddled, those countries are going to be pissed.

Finally, the source said as far as anyone can tell, Meghan only wants appearances so she can merch, only merches to get the money she owes Soho, but as Soho continues to pay for her publicity, nobody knows how she'll ever come out ahead. It's like owing the mob. And an additional problem is she has to hide the merch money lest the taxman want a word with her (you know the US tax problems US citizens have abroad), so there is speculation she has trouble accessing even her smaller portion of the merch cash, as it's not in an account she can access easily.

This all sounds like the kind of mess Harry would get into, and to me it is plausible ONLY because I believe he IS unmarriagable, IS jealous and resentful of his brother's perfect wife and perfect life, and HAS let the "Harry is the most popular royal" shit go to his head, and thus made some really stupid moves. And it's drama, which is a distraction from him actually confronting and dealing with himself. It's a perfect drama where the loveable scamp younger brother that big brother looks after, protects and steadies is actually eaten up by envy and would love to see his brother take a hit or two, unbeknownst to big brother.

Like I said several times, all this is a great replacement for the old time night time soaps.

If any of this is true, Harry really threw away his reputation among Royal fans, didn't he?

And I still say Sparkle and Dim are NOT moving into apartment 1 in KP. You know, the apartment with the connecting doors on each floor to William and Kate's home. Not gonna happen.

R56 - Quite a saga you've provided for us - the problem is, there isn't an iota of evidence, and I'm still waiting for evidence that HazBean's public appearances aren't going down well with the public.

Some of it sounds quite plausible - the bits about British aristo girls not wanting to marry him, Charles refusing to pay off Sparkle's debts to Soho House, and the BRF washing their hands of all but the most perfunctory obligations to put a good face on the marriage - like the Queen's obligatory one day appearances with Sparkle, just as she did one once with Kate a year after the Cambridge wedding.

What sounds totally not credible to me are stories that it was never supposed to lead to marriage, because without the marriage, any advantages Markle would have gotten from dating Harry would be up in smoke five minutes after the breakup was announced. She HAD to get her hands on that title, the wedding, the ring, and ensure her face was plastered across the globe, or it was all for nought. The last lines of that Vanity Fair article gave the whole game away.

R49, yes. In my head, Jessica Mulroney is mixed up with Elizabeth Hammer. They’re going for the same kind of thing.

The Mulroney’s house seems nice and all, but it’s very close to the neighbors and seems rather pedestrian. The neighborhood looks very much like the regular middle class homes of the kids I grew up with. Again, I’m not bashing it. I’m just surprised they don’t live in a more palatial place or some penthouse in the city.

Some of the retrospective pics are sad, though. She's on a red carpet but can't afford to be there. A "Maintenance" t shirt and a sad, empty tote bag? Yes, she wants to clean up at the gifting suites, but clearly this is stuff she's pulled from her own drawers and purchased at a mall, trying to make GAP-style basics look like street style. The thing with the blazer, pearls and cheap jeans looks like she doesn't belong there.

Some of those clothes are terrible and wouldn't work as a royal. The few that are suitable she was clearly styled by the Suits wardrobe team. Although what about that super short, shirred taupe skirt and basic camisole top? She looks as if she wandered in off the street. The one advantage the photos give her is most of the clothing fits her.

Not at all. Both of Harry's exes are still famous for being Harry's exes. Meghan would have gotten the same boost. Cressida is working as an actress but it is doubtful she would have been cast as often as she is (despite having a relatively commercial look plus $ and connections) were it not for her history with Harry. I don't think Jecca Craig would have been on camera if not for her presumed history with William. Chelsey Davy's jewelry line gets a big boost from having been Harry's ex. Nobody would have heard of Arya if she started it as an anonymous lawyer/Zimbabwean rich girl. So please with this. As an ex FIANCEE' Meghan would have been seen as getting closer than anyone, she could have spun it as that when she got to the point of actually committing, she realized she could not give up her independence, autonomy, "voice", blah blah blah, as delightful as Harry is. Good God, an American had the princess dream in her hand and gave it up! What kind of superwoman/role model is this? And so forth.

It could have been gold. She could have milked it forevermore, particularly as, as things stand, she was very likely to be the closest Harry had come to marriage for a long, long time. "The bachelor prince only came close to the altar once, but after a whirlwind engagement,the American actress Meghan Markle walked away, preferring the uncertainties of an independent life in America than having her hours proscribed for the rest of her days, even if it were in a gilded cage. All the more remarkable because the young woman is self-made and lacks the family trust funds and safety net Harry's previous inamoratas enjoyed."

The bottom line per this report is short term. If Meghan is the narc people say she is, then like all narcs she's a short term thinker. She wanted to insta-elevate her profile so she could MERCH. And nobody can deny that merching is the thing she has been doing since the day the engagement was announced. Say anything you like about her, argue whether they are "loved up" or appear bound in a marriage of convenience, but merch her ass off she has done and will continue to do. The rest of it? Blah blah bullshit. She wanted a merching profile. She's done literally nothing else with the position. NOTHING. All the stuff people think the marriage would bring her - she ignores it. She wants to merch.

Her long term goal is to be a lifestyle influencer. She'll never get there because there is no "there there" but the ex-fiancee is her best bet to sell herself to American girls.

In addition, Meghan Markle could have used the biracial card as an all time high card. The American media was already touting her being the first black woman to marry into the royal family. The American media would have been delighted with a narrative that pretended every rich white girl in North America and Europe would have sold their grandmother for a chance at a duchess or princess title but this half-black American actress from modest beginnings who made herself into a success all on her own turned her back at the opportunity. Being the ex Mrs. Andrew hasn't made Fergie rich, and they had two kids. Her duchess title impresses nobody. Nobody's like - oooh, ahhh, Fergie's a duchess!

It's a joke.

Being the ex Mrs. Harry isn't going to make Meghan Markle rich or even that famous when all is said an done. If she doesn't pop out kids - and my bet is she can't and therefore won't - she's even more irrelevant. She has the damn title. What is she doing with it but dragging her bare legs and dirty shoes around in a bunch of over-sized, wrinkled garments, touching her fingers to her hair so we can see the hat or the bracelet, or holding the straps of a handbag between the tips of two fingers at elbow height so it's in the shot, even though the plastic protection is still on the bottom metal bumpers? The ex-fiancee was a better gig; she's an asshole and a dumb ass. She's losing the sunk cost race. As long as Soho promotes her, and someone is churning out these stories, she'll owe them, and between the cash in-flow/income concealment/ tax challenges and probably not being able to pay them off faster than she's accumulating more Soho debt, she's on the losing end. She'd have been worth more being the woman who dumped a prince.

R66, her circumstances are too bizarre to be a cautionary tale. I mean, she makes Angelina Jolie look like an amateur. Angelina Jolie had a head start - real looks (pre-plastic surgery), connections up the whazoo, and an early start (she was in one of her dad's movies when she was a child). Only people wired like Meghan could learn from Meghan - nobody else would have the energy, the gall, the heartlessness (all the people jettisoned from her life without a backward glance as soon as they lost utility or didn't help her brand), and, most of all, the capacity to endure humiliation.

“And I still say Sparkle and Dim are NOT moving into apartment 1 in KP. You know, the apartment with the connecting doors on each floor to William and Kate’s home. Not gonna happen”.

Kensington Palace is not your local Holiday Inn Express - these aren’t interconnecting rooms that the duty manager unlocks for family groups.

These are large adjoining houses - think brownstones on the UES and UWS. They’re not apartments as you would understand them.

Also apartment 1 is currently occupied by the Duke and Duchess of Gloucester (Google is your friend here). Just because the Mail Online would like them to move out doesn’t mean that they will. That decision rests with the Monarch, not with whichever illiterate hack currently edits the Mail.

Alternatively provide links to proof of the interconnecting doors and I’m happy to stand corrected.

All these theories. There's even one commenter on the DM who claims MM is an undercover CIA spy. My take is the simplest and therefore most likely - Harry stated that he envied his brother life with wife, children and dog and wanted the same for himself. He stated, 'Who would have me?' and from that we can extrapolate that no one was eager to take on royal duties as his wife, possibly also due to his own flaws and limitations. He stated that since his past gfs dumped him because of media scrutiny, he needed to find someone who actually enjoyed it, ie, a celebrity. I think he knew he could never compete with his brother the future king, so he decided to be the super-cool one, the anti-William, and marry the anti-Kate, not a dutiful English rose, but a spectacular.American star. And then the inevitable happened - he got caught by someone much cleverer and more experienced than himself, a hustler of the highest order. And now it has blown up in his face, because the British public, HIS EMPLOYER, has made it plain that they object to the woman he has chosen to be on his team.

Over on tumblr, the financial geniuses think any financial payoff was bound to fail. "What if they gave her 10 million pounds? Would that last her the rest of her LIFE?"

Sure it would. Make it a trust, live off the income. Easy. Never work again. Fold in a home, and you've got a base of operations. For a hustler like Meghan who can pretend no money is a lot of money just by brazening through, it would be plenty. Fergie could have lived off the relatively modest settlement she received (2 million pounds? 4 million pounds?) but she's a reckless spendthrift and investor. And that's what would have sunk Meghan. She'd have spent myopically spent it.

Of course, if the RF were smart, they'd insist the settlement be in trust so the ex-wives wouldn't come back in years down the line with their hat out once more. Why didn't they put Fergie's settlement in trust? If they did, why was she broke so often?

I don't think Harry wants kids. I think that kid-loving, endearing, class clown guy is his schtick. He stares into kids eyes, mirrors their expression, acts like a big kid, aaaand ... SCENE. I think the rest is PR. There's the video of him knocking the heads of those two kids together before leaving. One of the kids opened his mouth in surprise and reaction and rubbed his head, so it must have stung. William doesn't act like a big kid when he talks to kids. He acts like a dad. He's respectful, picks up on their demeanor, respects their personal space. Harry comes in there doing his big kid act regardless of whether the kid is into it, and that is not being good with kids. That young girl he pulled from the crowd at a first appearance with Meghan. The girl was black and wanted to be an actress, so he brought her over to Meghan. First of all, he should have brought Meghan to her. You don't pull a strange kid out of a crowd away from their minders; it's rude. Second, he had Meghan hug her - using her as nothing but a prop. The girl's arms stayed straight at her sides. So it's schtick. That poor motherless Harry, just a big kid himself is b.s. Remember just this past January a fellow polo player called him out for being an asshole, and William apologized to the guy for Harry's behavior and demeanor. And his and Cressida's friends both said they are very young for their ages, very entitled, and spoiled. Harry doesn't WANT kids, he doesn't want that responsibility. He wants the perks of BEING a kid, being a scamp, and it's aging on him by now. At Meghan's cookout dealie, Harry "stole" some samosas, "snuck" away with them very conspicuously until he saw a camera had found him, and then he played to the camera. That's him. He's no family man. He's the spoiled youngest and hasn't made a move to grow up.

R8: "All these theories. There's even one commenter on the DM who claims MM is an undercover CIA spy. My take is the simplest and therefore most likely"

If you do say so yourself. There are plenty of other simple theories that fit Harry's pattern of behavior - not words - behavior, far better.

" Harry stated that he envied his brother life with wife, children and dog and wanted the same for himself."

I don't believe him. I think he envied the approval and attention it brought William. He had the Jan syndrome. Marcia Marcia Marcia! He's not accepting of his position. He knows he's the spare, but the media has fawned on him, the BRF PR went overboard and then some with the post-Vegas rehab narrative, and IMO it went to his head. He never did anything to rehab himself, he just got a new narrative and kept the seedy stuff out of the press.

"He stated, 'Who would have me?' and from that we can extrapolate that no one was eager to take on royal duties as his wife, possibly also due to his own flaws and limitations."

POSSIBLY? POSSIBLY? Please. That's it in one. A cheater. A spoiled baby. Bad tempered. Irresponsible and reckless. Cheap. What a catch.

" He stated that since his past gfs dumped him because of media scrutiny, he needed to find someone who actually enjoyed it, ie, a celebrity. "

I don't recall him saying that he needed to find a celebrity. However, his past girlfriends dumped him because of him, not media scrutiny. Media scrutiny is the whitewash they put on it. He's the problem. If he were capable of having a mature relationship and behaving maturely in it, he would find a girl who would stick it out. Kate, IMO, loves William very much but could do without some of the deadly boring engagements and a lot of the public part of her job. Nothing about her says she'd rather be partying or having a more truly glamorous lifestyle either. She could have married a rich aristo but she loved William. William and she get dragged for the time they took, but considering they met so young, it made sense for them to ride out the growing up stages of the middle twenties until they were safely mature and knew themselves well enough to commit. That took maturity on both their parts.

"I think he knew he could never compete with his brother the future king, so he decided to be the super-cool one, the anti-William, and marry the anti-Kate, not a dutiful English rose, but a spectacular.American star. "

Wait - then why did he marry Meghan Markle, a Z list basic cable actress 4 years older than himself whom nobody had ever heard of? And nobody had ever heard of her show either? AND it was the only real thing on her resume?

I think he definitely wanted instant gratification and to one-up William, and I think he believed at first that Meghan's acting background would make her poised and effective at engagements. He showed confidence in her at first, but by the time she showed up to events with pants dragging in the slush, or stilettos on the sports turf, or wandering away from a conversation station before the time was up, he realized she was a weirdo but he lacked the stones to back out. I think at first he did think marrying a biracial woman would be uber cool, but again, by the time the engagement was half done, her bizarre behavior and complete disinterest in learning the job had hit him between the eyes, but he kept going. He already knew she wasn't good at it by then, he'd started to look wary. He'd started to wrangle her. The family started keeping their distance. I think initially he didn't care about his personal life much but liked the statement the engagement, marriage, and having this wife would make, but it backfired. BEFORE the wedding, it had already backfired.

"then the inevitable happened - he got caught by someone much cleverer and more experienced than himself, a hustler of the highest order."

by Anonymousreply 8110/08/2018


Please, you can see her from space. If she were a hustler of the highest order the public would adore her. Instead from the engagement interview with her OTT faux earnestness and word salad, everybody had her number. She moves in with the Soho people, who are all cheap hustlers, all of them. Fake tan, plastic surgery, drug problems, fake cvs, fake backgrounds, histories swept under the rug. Fact: Harry wasn't taken in by a hustler of the highest order. He played himself. She's as basic as they come.

It's blown up in his face because she's a basic grifter and there's a certain car wreck fascination with how the fuck did this happen? Let's pretend Diana was ALSO a narc, a borderline, a manipulator, etc. etc. There's evidence for it. How was Charles taken in? Well SHE was of the highest order, some conscious, some just circumstance. Aristocratic family, very young (19), big blue eyes, soft voice, knew how to dress, knew how to handle herself in public. Just watch her - she plays around sometimes but when it matters she is ON POINT from the curtsy at the wedding to standing in the spotlight on the side supporting Charles to supervising William as he signs something. She's familiar with the life of a country estate - was raised in it. Her family has been entwined with the BRF since she was a child. She pretends to love life at Balmoral. Most people would be taken in.

Meghan is no Diana. You could SEE her. How do you see a 33 year old woman who is on basic cable, doesn't own anything, has no family she acknowledges, most of her friends she's had for only a couple of years, the make-up is troweled on, and etc. etc. etc. You see what she is.

Just compare Harry to the guy who for years people thought was a bad influence on both Harry and William. Guy Pelley. Several license suspensions for drunk driving. I don't think he's an aristo, but he's rich, and seemingly exemplified a models and bottles lifestyle. When he got married, he got serious. Yes, he married a rich woman, an American heiress, but a very well educated one, a reputedly very sensible one, and in no sense a babe. She's attractive, intelligent, not a head turner. Doesn't seem to be a fool. Surely if Pelly were still immature, she could have found another socially placed Brit to marry. She's richer than rich. They get married, they have a baby. I just think it's really rich that Guy freaking Pelly can grow up and Harry refuses.

I don't think Harry wants anything to do with kids. IMO they are foils for him to show his charm. But to put himself second and make himself responsible for the well being and upbringing of a small human, I do not see it. And Meghan seems absolutely allergic to kids. I hope I'm right, because I think she has no interest in them and will not have any (or can't, but even if she could, she wouldn't). That makes her better, if I'm right, than some who don't like kids but have them for PR reasons or branding. For some reason I think she won't do that, no matter how much some people think it's critical for her long term strategy.

by Anonymousreply 8710/08/2018

Meghan repels kids. In all of her outings with Harry when they have to interact with children, they pay her no mind and actively ignore her. She gives off zero maternal vibes and kids see through her as fake.

Kate on the other hand, kids were begging her for hugs at her first appearance back from maternity leave last week. She did nothing to initiate it, children are just drawn to her as she radiates a love for little ones. Megs, the exact opposite.

I still can't get over Sparkle wearing a full black pantsuit for that event with Harry for terminally ill children. WHO DOES THAT? Children respond to bright colors and black makes their little brains turn off and be unhappy. Did Meg care? No. She was far more interested in showing off a $3K designer outfit.

As you said, R65, all of Harry’s exes are rich and/or girls. Meghan is neither. She had to “secure the bag” as they put it on Lipstick alley. The “runaway bride” could work if she was twenty-something and had any career prospects, not thirty-something quickly aging out of the only colour in her acting palette, emploi ingenue. What would she do with the publicity of “dumping Harry”? He’d have married the next in line, and the press would be all over his bride, ignoring MM. She could try to bag some other wealthy man, but that’s still a long shot. Look at Amber Heard, she hasn’t managed so far to parlay her divorce from Johnny Depp into anything worthwhile career-wise or in terms of marrying another rich guy, and she has a lot more going for her than MM.

And it is simply not fair to compare MM to Kate when it comes to kids, R88. Not only Kate has three of her own, she also has two younger siblings and a close-knit extended family. People who have little or no experience with kids tend to be awkward around them, but it doesn’t mean they cannot become good parents (it remains to be seen though if Meghan is interested in ever becoming one).

Actually, I think the threads on Markle have been an interesting mixture of sane, shrewd observations, outrageous gossip (that is why we;re here, remember?), and some obsessive stuff from people who give way too much credence to rumour and the kind of stuff that the Internet is so fabled for seeding. Not to mention some very astute discussions on fashion. I really don't think it's any more of a sad obsession than, say, favourite horror films, ice-skaters, and old TV shows.

It's a bit like Shakespeare: when all's said and done, we basically only know for sure four things about him: where and when he was born, where and when he died, whom he married, and the names of his two children. Those are the only prima facie facts we have.

Similarly with Harry and Meghan - he's clearly dumb, she's clearly barely able to conceal her climbing claws, her taste in clothes sucks, and her self-interest so overpowering that she is willing to risk the distaste of the British public and her in laws by refusing to support the side by wearing British fashion.

Beyond that, we don't know much, but speculation is allowed here, with the invaluable help of the Daily Mail, or what's a gossip site for?

Meanwhile, back to fashion: speaking of the Daily Mail, they published Kate today out in a recycled dress (they had "recycled" in large point type to make clear who they were shading) by Emilia Wickstead. The dress is one of Kate's prettiest, a lilac coloured number that fits her to perfection and shows off her tiny waist and pretty legs (take that, Sparkle). They published the photo of her today next to the first time she wore it in 2017 in Hamburg, and she looks the same in both, despite having given birth less than six months ago.

She looks quite lovely, and the dress, certainly not cheap at £1350, nevertheless is used by the DM to contrast Kate's"thriftiness", her simple, perfectly fitted taste in a beautiful feminine colour, and her support for British fashion, to the unmentioned DoS's overblown, badly fitting, extravagant, fussy, and obdurately non-British choices, not to mention the impossibility of her ever being able to look like a wholesome Home Counties Girl Turned Princess.

Well, it's true: Meghan can't look like this in a simple dress, she doesn't have the figure or the temperament to carry it off.

by Anonymousreply 11810/09/2018

R85, I'm old enough to know this is going to drag on much longer than a lot of observers want or predict. Mostly because Harry has nothing else to do. He is directionless. I believe reports that he's been a no show at the planning for the next Invictus. If it's true he's foisting Meghan on them as closing speaker, that is hubris of the highest order and will finish him with the vets, and with people who love him because of the vet tie-in. I think a wife can be closing speaker, but if she's invested. If she's been at all the meetings, had input, helped solve problems. Earned it. But the past couple of Invictus have been hijacked by Harry's love life. For him to insist at this one that his wife do the closing speech is disrespectful and exploitative, and he'll pay.

He's the problem, not Meghan. So many places I read, well, her past will come out. Pfffttttt. The royal family has had seedier people in it than her. If she behaved and took it seriously, her past would be no issue. Nobody cares. Or people think her ridiculous dress and behavior will embarrass him at some point to where he pulls the plug. Well, he'd have to cut out some of his embarrassing behavior first, wouldn't he?

Anyhow, for me the bottom line is he has nothing else going on and isn't developing anything else. The commonwealth schtick the queen gave him gets worse and worse with the two of them patronizingly blathering about "unique cultures" and talking down. The BRF are former colonialists, the Lord and Lady Bountiful tone is not the way to play it. He'll get off on the sympathy of "fans" who think the poor boy is stuck, but he'll do nothing. Whatever his real personal life is, we won't know about it. At some point she'll leave him; he won't leave her.

U.S. blinds are reporting Skippy Inskip is out because he's the one who arranged for Megs' and PH's original "pay for playdate", oops, I mean "blind date", and he knows too much about her other "blind dates".

by Anonymousreply 12610/09/2018

What the hell does Trevor have going on to get a second wife worth $200M? Meghan must be gnashing her teeth. One of the fun parts of this whole story for me is that I believe Meghan was so used to marketing, bullshitting, creating narratives out of nothing, and she's also a short-sighted narc, that she never tested her assumptions about the royal family. I believe for her the royal family was a montage of Kate on a yacht in a white bikini, lounging on William's leg. It was skiing in Klosters and it was Diana posed forlornly on the diving board of a mega yacht, never mind the guy she was dating was a coke addict supported by his dad the arms dealer, NOT the royal family. It was Diana in mega-jewels and mega couture. I don't believe Meghan ever parsed out the difference as in - oh say, CHARLES was Prince of Wales. Perhaps I should look at Fergie or Sophie or Autumn to reality test my assumptions about life with Harry, Mr. 6th in Line. I don't believe Meghan ever sorted that it was Harry and William's friends who owned the yachts or the ranches in Africa, that Kate's family has money and paid for other perks, etc. If Harry lived strictly royal, NO connections, it would be NotCot, 400k, and... that's about it. And when Harry marries a woman who can't stop blabbing to the tabloids undermining everyone he knows, the invites will dry up.

Bottom line is Harry's personal income via Diana's trust is approximately 400k annually. Perks galore of course. Access - if someone else pays. Free housing - hey, did you know the hotel adjacent to Kensington Palace has an unobstructed view into the outdoor spaces?

For Sparkle, it's only fun being her if everyone else loses. (Ghosting everyone else.)

Trevor's marriage to a woman whose dad is filthy rich (without having to shake hands with all those peasants) must chap her ass.

And r128, I think it’s only fun if everyone envies her. she has to be better and above thers to feel satisfaction. She probably no longer cares for Trevor, if she ever did, but what are the chances that she is happy for him after she devastated the guy? If she has a heart she has to feel bad for jettisoning him so cruelly.

by Anonymousreply 13010/09/2018

In one of the blinds it was reported there was some awkwardness between Harry and one of his friends because the friend had known MM as pay for play and assumed Harry wanted the same. Surprised it was Skippy because he has been in the inner circle for decades.

MM should have looked at Edward and Sophie's life. They live in the ginormous Bagshott Hall, a gift from the queen, but cannot afford to heat more than a few of the rooms. They are salaried by the queen and their jobs are a round of royal visits, meet and greets, etc. No prestige whatever.

by Anonymousreply 13110/09/2018

R128, you nailed it.

I also think that MM is alienating Harry from his friends. That’s exactly how someone like MM works. They’ll be “friends” with HER people, and for however long they’re useful. She can’t be wasting time trying to fit in. And if he’s dependent on her for emotional support, it’s easier to control him. She’s going to do it with his family, too. Force him to choose.

by Anonymousreply 13210/09/2018

The fact that Harry has so easily meshed into her SoHo House lifestyle shows how weak he is. His friends have probably abandoned him after marrying this horrible bride and it's all he has left. This will bite him in the ass. Thank goodness William is heir to the throne over this impetuous brat. I really liked him before Meghan as he set a course post-army to highlight his fellow vets. His friendship with Michelle Obama over the Invictus Games in Orlando, FL showed he has international leadership ability. He's destroying it all with his arriviste American divorcee wife and her high spending habits.

PS --- Kate wore that Emilia Wickstead dress on an official state visit. At $1350 it was still far cheaper than anything MeAgain has worn to basic English appearances. Kate's recycling of it was a clear sign that the Cambridges don't approve of their new arrival's tastes in wearing $3K outfits to every London event she attends.

by Anonymousreply 13310/09/2018

I have little doubt that Harry's toff friends make fun of MM behind her back. Her defunct blog would have given them ammunition for years to come because it is the opposite of everything they are. With Kate and William, it's complicated. Harry has been close to Kate for a long time and I read he won't hear a word against her. She is said to be very maternal in private. William and Harry are obviously very bonded. But they haven't embraced MM at all, because unless Harry steps down, her presence is a threat to them all, because of how she riles up the public.

by Anonymousreply 13410/10/2018

R105 - I doubt Kate will recycle that outfit - it's too springlike. She's also worn it to one of her children's christenings, I think. She was literally three weeks out of childbed there, you can still see some postpartum swelling.

As for Sparkle, who knows. The outfit she wore to Louis's christening would be very suitable for the season.

Here's my Yuge Wedding Fantasy: Yuge surprises us all and knocks it out of the park with a gorgeous gown that makes Sparkle's look like a housemaid's dress; all the other women in the BRF (except Princess Anne, who is just hopeless) including Fergie are beautifully rather than ridiculously dressed AND wearing British designs; the smiles during the service are broad and in marked contrast to the expressions on the family's faces at the Sussex wedding; no one plays the slightest attention to Harry and Sparkle.

Oh, for the record: my bets on the wedding dress designer are either Ralph and Russo (which would be one in the eye for Sparkle), or Erdem.

Any takers? Other fantasies?

by Anonymousreply 13510/10/2018

Kate wasnt exactly accepted by William's friends. They mocked her parents as jumped-up strivers ( "Trays in the upright and locked position") and Kate because she changed her university plans--as did a ton of other girls--to attend St Andrew and then waited around *for years* for him to propose. Eventually it worked out and now it's MM's turn to go through the wringer. Kate had her close knit family to fall back on. MM just has her wits, like Becky Sharp.

Kate looks stunning in that dress. It's perfect, and the shoes are gorgeous. Everything fits, it's appropriate but not dull, the colors are autumnal, her hair looks lustrous and fresh, the harsh makeup is toned down and, as her lilac number the other day did, emphasises her small waist and nice legs. Bateau neckline is asymmetrical, the brooch is perfect, the earrings perfect . . .

And, it's British.

Maternity leave over, Kate comes out with guns blazing: her full bosom, tiny waist, height, nice legs, supporting British fashion . . . and looking relaxed and radiant. And tall, leggy, small waisted, and loyal to the Side.

Weather on Friday looks dicey in southeast England, positively bad in western England.

I think the CDAN blind was shit stirring, pretending she ghosted Markus Anderson. That blind lands on that space, and hours later comes the news that Harry and Meghan have dumped Inskip. I am sure the aristo boys and especially Harry's pals have sleazed around Soho house, but it just has to have been Markus Anderson who actually introduced them.

Boy, Trevor Engelson. Living well, blah blah blah. His bride may be filthy rich, but she also looks sweet and normal. Man did he come out ahead. Kudos to upthread who said he did what Meghan wanted to do - land a rich spouse. Meghan thinks she did or thought she did but it doesn't quite work the same way with Harry as it does with regular rich. I hope Trevor has an instagram and just keeps pumping out the content of himself and his wife on beaches and adventures around the world, his wife dressed in cute, hot, sexy fashion while Meghan has to drag her ill-fitting royal-appropriate rags around every time she appears in public.

R148, as already said, she was wasting daddy's money. I think she also bled him dry before she got Suits, because she had an expensive lifestyle that even Suits couldn't support.

For good measure, and full on Angelina Jolie-ishness, there will be a blind about how someone's husband drank a bit too much and this doting husband and father flirted a little too conspicuously with Meghan.

I think Meghan's presence is a threat because she's untrustworthy. Left to her own devices she will take pictures of private spaces with her phone, and she'll sell everything she finds out or overhears. Barring that, she'll make it up. I think that's why they keep her at arms' length.

by Anonymousreply 15510/10/2018

R153 - Right, a "basic" pump - Jimmy Choos with five inch heels in burgundy velvet.

R155 - I don't doubt the family don't trust Sparkle. She has just a tad too much backstory and too many "friends" like Lainey in the media and what's more, I don't think they trust Harry, either. They probably figured that it was safer to have the two of them where they could be more easily watched. After a year of dating, they probably figured that MeAgain already knew too much about Harry not to blab freely if they discouraged the marriage, and would have nothing to lose by blabbing if he dumped her. They probably figured the damage was already done and she could be better contained inside than outside.

And once inside, MeAgain has something to lose. It's one thing to lose Prince Harry the BF, but it's another thing to lose your title, your servants, your designer clothes, your freedom from 4AM makeup calls whilst someone else pays all your bills, your lovely home in the Cotswolds, weekends with Amal and George, and that grand apartment that Betty will be sure to give them once they have a baby . . .

In other words, they can much easier hold HRH The Duchess of Sussex hostage than the angry, vengeful ex-Prince Harry's GF.

I wonder if her little brain every went that far?

Kate today::

-- never fussed with her hair, it was perfect -- never looked for the camera and was engaging with the people she met -- wore a bateau neckline that looked fabulous and not like a boxy linebacker -- had interesting conversations about the exhibit she was attending without telling anyone it was "so cool." -- wore a British brand to support her country's economy -- walked like a confident woman and didn't sashay like a hooker -- has perfect legs that don't look like a bird -- wore a nice autumnal pattern and not funereal black -- has a natural smile the whole time that wasn't fake or forced and no manic eyes

Kate's absolute perfection now that we've seen what a horror show Meghan Markle is to the BRF. Kate's ability to do her job properly just makes it more glaringly obvious how horrifically bad Meghan is.

R168 - you're in a very small minority this time. The dress is nearly universally appreciated. And only a tall girl could pull it off. The colours are lovely, the dress is perfectly fitted to her, it's graceful when it moved, the toning of the shoes, belt, and lining perfect.

And personally, I loathe Erdem. I think this is the first Erdem dress I've ever liked. The last Erdem dress Kate wore gave me nightmares. One of her worst mistakes ever, although I can't quite remember when or where she wore it. Dull metallic colours - she looked like a piece of old Victorian furniture covered in ormulu.

But this - this is beautiful. Very feminine, shows off the waist . . . no, Kate knocked it out of the park with this one.

R185 - if you click on the photo you provided you get to the Vanity Fair article, if you go down to the highlighted link that says "second evening in a row" and click on that, you'll see the photo of what I call the Ormolu Erdem.

Even Kate's strong colouring didn't stand up to those ghastly colours. I think you have to be black or Asian to wear those colours properly. You need to have very dark or very pale colouring for those, on Kate's tawny/ruddy skin they were a disaster. She carries red, purple, pink, powder, sky, and royal blues, fawn, grey - but not gold. Interestingly, Mary of Denmark looks awful in gold and orange, too. She's tried them a couple of times but never successfully.

And for the poster moaning about Kate's "plain pumps" please note the ankle straps in the blue velvet Erdem.

MeAgain looks like shit in that Invictus flag photo - and how interesting that it got released JUST as Kate got raves for her Erdem outfit across the board. She looks like she saw the photos of Kate, rolled Harry out of bed screaming, "Where's that fucking flag?!" called the photogs and rushed them into the back garden for a quick photo barely stopping to comb her hair and pull on her slumming clothes.

With the Cumberbatches on their third baby, my guess is Skippy and the other HazBean conspiracy pushers migrated over from the Sophie Hunter Ate My Baby sites, where they insist his wife engaged in human trafficking, any glimpses of children are photoshopped in, or they were secretly adopted, or they found a surrogate who looked enough like either one of them, and the marriage isn't legal and the births were never recorded, and between them, Cumberbatch and his wife managed to blackmail or defraud a Church of England Vicar, the British government, and the Portland Hospital.

I think there's enough prima facie things to work with: her clothes, her refusal to Support British Brands, the rush of the relationship, her history of ghosting - and, of course, the Tobacco Road family.

R206 - that's because the photo doesn't show clearly enough that the green of her sloppy wrinkled shirt/blouse doesn't remotely tone with the green of her lambskin skirt, and you also can't really see the big silver zipper at the back of said skirt, which was clearly sewn in several parts - the sign of cheaply tailored leather, nor can you see the Armani coat she was wearing which was four inches shorter than the skirt.

I just clicked through eighty-plus snaps of Meg's outfits. As you say, some of them are fine and would be good for her current work. Most of them are too short which leads me to believe that she doesn't know. She thinks her legs are good, sexy even. She has no idea they're bird legs and quite ugly, as legs go.

Oh well, the Mulroney woman won't last forever. Meg will get sick of the bad press, if nothing else, and then maybe she'll get a decent stylist.

While I think Kate has FINALLY come into her own, It is frustrating to hear all of the revisionist history. Before MM, Kate was a bit of a disaster herself. Happy to see her feel more confident, but that was never the case before. She was a stiff mess especially around kids, she didn't pay attention to protocol, she always touched her hair, half of which was fake anyway, she was awkward, lazy and not at all intelligent. Let's try and remember that while comparing her to a different mess. Neither of them are gold stars, though again, I have to say that Kate has come in to her own. Not that the bar is set very high, but I give her her due.

For fuck's sake, that woman and her fucking tendril are becoming a fucking comedy. Boring outfit, a colour that does nothing for her, and the whole thing would have been reasonably inoffensive if she hasn't as always found a way to present herself as someone who needs a fucking trademark. And the shot of her grinning for the camera inside the church was just revolting.

I thought Eugenie's dress quite lovely, rich but not gaudy, beautifully tailored, and I was struck by her declining to wear a veil. And absolutely delighted to see the Greville emerald kokoshnik tiara. Very well done.

Meanwhile, watching the BBC commentary after the fact, the outlet did its best to run down the wedding, raising questions about the cost for the royal family that it didn't bother to raise as it gushed over the mixed race American divorcee bride - quite clearly trying to explain its refusal to broadcast the wedding, and bringing up the cost of security for it, and, of course, omitting to mention that the security wasn't so much for Eugenie and her new husband, but the Queen, Prince Charles, and Prince William.

Fergie looked awful - her dress was too tight, and of course she rushed over to greet "fans" before heading into the Chapel.

We need to discuss the most striking thing about Yuge's very dignified and royal selections today: no veil. Of course, one misses it in some way, but I wonder if Yuge has more brains than given credit for - she's 28, hardly a virgin, and hiding the blushing face till the groom lifts the veil is a bit specious in this day and age. I thought the long veil and the before the face farce, it particularly offensive in Sparkle's case, for obvious reasons.

Of course, a veil would have taken away from the really breathtaking tiara, also. Really, props to Yuge for all her choices here. I am so bloody glad she declined to wear the frilly York tiara for this piece, which was done by Boucheron for Mrs Greville, one of the richest and most disliked matrons of her generation. A society hostess of the day said she would rather have an open sewer in her drawing room than Maggie Greville.

As it happens, Maggie Greville took a shine to the young Duchess of York (later the Queen Mum and Eugenie's great grandmother) and having no children of her own, left the legendarily charming Duchess a fortune in jewelry when she died - just in case the royal collection didn't have enough choices to offer her. I assume this gorgeous tiara came to the royal family through that bequest.

And look a the size of that emerald.

An unusual fail for Sophie Wessex, in my opinion. The short sleeves, quilty material, and dark colour seemed out of place to me. She and Sparkle both looked a bit out of place in their dark colours.

I noticed that Harry sat between the Cambridges and his wife, and that Kate spoke to Harry but not Sparkle.

Kate seems to be riding a new wave of maturity and confidence. The birth of that last baby seems to have done something for her. She seems radiant these days. Given her difficult first trimester, she's probably thrilled to have the three children she said she'd always wanted and to be done with the childbearing forever. She and William seem very together, she's got her figure back, she looks fantastic.

Someone should hand Sparkle a few combs for her hair. That dangling tendril is just fugly at this point and ruins the line of every hat she wears. And God Almighty what is up with the parade of rings across her hands?!

by Anonymousreply 27710/12/2018

One thing the Windsors pass down without fail is gorgeous skin. From Queen Victoria onward, helped out by Queen Mary's alabaster complexion, then the Queen Mother's exquisite complexion, and then Diana's, the genetic windfall in the complexion department is unmistakable.

In her autobiography, when the late English prima ballerina Margot Fonteyn went to get her DBE from the Queen, who believe was in her late twenties at the time, Fonteyn related how she was literally "struck dumb by the beauty and delicacy of the Queen's complexion". Even Wallace Simpson mentioned in her memoirs, however acidly, the then-Duchess of York's beautiful skin. Their complexions are probably why the Queen Mother, Queen Mary, and Queen Elizabeth were so much prettier in person than in photographs of the day. By the time Diana rolled around, of course, you could plainly see her beautiful skin in colour photographs.

Yuge has the same beautiful colouring as her late great grandmother, dark hair, blue eyes, and creamy skin. She was right to leave the veil off so that it could show.

Kate looks amazing, the raspberry colour is fantastic was is the hat. I do think the bottom half of the dress is too busy. The dress is very similar to a pink one which was one of her best looks ever. She really shines in her 'summer' colours.

I feel so bad for Fergie. If she had chosen a candy-coloured clown costume, she couldn't have looked worse. So terrible in every way - the colour, the satin fabric, the too-tight fit, the exposure of her lizard-like decolletage, the insane hat. The sweat stains were just the cherry on the cake of her outfit.

What an ultra trashy day for Meghan. Not only did she troll by wearing her coat "pregnant" - the top buttons buttoned but the middle and bottom ones unbuttoned so in silhouette she had a 5 months pregnant - something everyone on twitter and fashion blogs immediately noted - but she had a fistful of gold-plated, tacky, overdesigned Pippa Small rings on both hands that didn't go with her outfit but she had those hands up in the air constantly. No sooner did she enter the church than Pippa Smalls twitter name-checked the rings with a close-up of Markles' fingers. Merching Markle never stops, not even when entering church for someone else's wedding.

Her hair looked like shit. Eugenie had "tendrils" as well but they were brushed, and somehow via the miracles of hair styling they stayed soft-looking while staying in place in the wind. Her implant-looking cheekbones were back, probably because she overdid the contour as usual.

Meghan is nothing but a blank slate, she has no ideas of her own and appropriates from everyone else.

Well of course she likes Soho life more than royal life. The only thing she likes about royal life is what she presumes about the status that accrues to her. I mean fucking ROYAL. The expression on her face that time she closed the car "by herself" door was priceless. Looked like she smelled something, and she closed it with her fingertips. I bet the driver or aide or whomever was intentionally just a beat late. Meghan wants to be flying around, boating around, instagramming everything, blogging it all, controlling the narrative and her story. She wants to do the car show and "glamour model" poses.

Kate and William were photographed at the wedding with Kate's hand on William's thigh, whereupon he closed his own hand over hers and turned the pages of the order of service with his right hand. No biggie, but it got a lot of attention and there are gifs on social media. 10, 9, 8, 7, 6.... let's count down to when Meghan attempts to imitate it. She never quite gets the tone, but I imagine she'll get the straight arm, that it was the thigh, and then looking in another direction for the same effect. Let's hope Harry cooperates with his own hand, but no worries, Meghan will thigh it up even if Harry keeps his hands otherwise occupied.

It was so sweet of meghan to wear that navy blue (I told you!) dress with that oversized coat in order to not steal away the attention from the bride.

Very considerate of her.

Windsor has never been home to William or Harry, they were raised between Kensington Palace, Highgrove House, St James Palace, Clarence House and Birkhall. On Windsor Castle, Buckingham Palace, Balmoral Castle and Sandringham House trips were just visiting Granny and Grandpa.

I think Meghan opposes or favors whatever will bring her attention or status. She presented herself as a foodie but I remember one plausible sounding blind item about their pre-wedding days that said, "Neither one is much of a cook." That, I believe. To me, Meghan is just myopic. There's a pic of her I saw where she's got her phone out taking a picture of a teeny breakfast still life on her table, and the rest of the place, including the rest of the table, looked like a fucking hoarder lived there. She's like a lot of narcissists. A lot of narcissists, particularly sort of low and mid-level famous, LOVE the still camera a lot more than they love film or video. I've seen several turn it on when the video lens is on them, and totally drop it when the lens is on someone else, even if they're still in the damn frame!!

"Weddings are joyful occasions, but they can also put friends’ noses out of joint.

Banker Thomas ‘Skippy’ Inskip was delighted to be invited to the whole of Princess Eugenie’s wedding after suffering an indignity at Prince Harry’s nuptials in May.

Despite being one of Harry’s oldest friends, Skippy and his wife, Lara Hughes-Young, were invited only to the ceremony and afternoon reception when he married Meghan Markle, and not to the more exclusive evening party at Frogmore House, Windsor.

‘Skippy and Lara were very upset not to be invited to the evening do as Harry and Meghan had attended all of their wedding in Jamaica last year and Harry was even an usher,’ claims a pal.

‘Particularly as Meghan’s presence at their wedding with Harry led to much unwelcome attention from the world’s media.’

Does Meghan see Skippy as a danger?

After all, he did accompany Harry on his infamous trip to Las Vegas, when the Prince was photographed naked during a game of ‘strip billiards’."

When normally the best anyone can say for a MEagain outfit is “well at least it fits, sort of” then you know she is not, and never will be, stylish.

Style and fashion are different things, this is something she doesn’t seem to understand. She slavishly follows each trend without thought to whether it actually flatters. If you understand your body type and dress to your advantage you will be stylish without necessarily being fashionable. Trendy is not something anyone in her position should be striving for.

She simply has no personal style and I suspect that’s because she’s a mirror. She apes the interests and tastes of whoever she’s trying to impress, there’s no substance to her intellect.

And it will happen right about the time that the aging process will force her to stop playing the "sexy ingenue" lest she become a laughingstock.

The coronation would come before any other event... that usually takes a year of planning and preparation. I wonder if an investiture of Prince of Wales would be on the scale of previous investitures? The new (semi) slimmed down monarchy might not be up for a faux coronation. I don't believe Charles, in the end, will sideline his brothers and sisters as much as previously thought. There is plenty of work to go around and it will be a delicate transition from a long reigning and beloved queen to Charles with his complexities. The last thing he needs personally or the monarchy needs in terms of public perception are stories of new king with a tenuous hold on public affection treating others poorly from the prior popular reign.

Cressida isn't that much different than Meghan, she dumped Harry to become an actress and used her status as Harry's ex to get herself lead roles without any experience.

“It’s hard to see her turning down the invitation as anything other than a snub but she insists she has another social event which she must be at.”

And lastly, sexual passion rarely lasts that long in the domestic intimacies of marriage and children. William and Kate look closer and happier than they have since the early years of their marriage. Intimacy, in the long run, if the relationship matures well, is more important, and it's clear William and Kate are experiencing this now.

Meghan would do well to cultivate an interest in a sport. I say that because Kate's lifelong athleticism is one of the more interesting and surprising things about her: You wouldn't expect such a soignée woman to also be so hardy. I am convinced that this was one of the reasons William was attracted to her in their college years, and has remained attracted to her. In light of the fact that 1) Harry is also physically active, 2) he has, by all reports, always found Kate charming and fun, and 3) he, Kate, and William used to enjoy lots of outdoorsy activities together, it would strategic of Meghan to develop her athletic side.

R101 it's said Kate could have or would have married an aristo to make the point that she wasn't a middle-class girl elevated out of mundane circumstances when she married a prince. She didn't need William for lifestyle. It's not a given that she would have, but her family had money, she didn't "need" to work, her circle of friends were all well-placed and well-educated, similar circles to William's by that point.

The Waity Katy thing always annoyed me. They met when they were just over 20 years old. Were they supposed to rush off and get married at ages 23 or 24? Particularly considering what was at stake? There was really no option but to wait it out through their middle twenties into their late twenties until William's training was over and until they had endured long enough to make what is a bigger commitment than most people who marry. Harry and Chelsey were together just about as long (didn't split for good until their last try in 2015) and didn't have the same ending, that's all. We've seen that Jack and Eugenie also were together 7-8 years and nobody called him Waity Jack. I read a story that the queen demanded the senior royals (the ones that need permission to marry) actually be in a committed relationship at least five years before marrying. Harry pretty much broke those rules, but I think Harry is a special case and special problem. Even though the queen herself married at 21, she had known Phillip since she was 13.

Instead she's wearing those ridiculous rings with a structured coat, stilettos and her usual half-assed fascinator. I think some of the media is as tacky as Meghan - one twitter account said that after someone posted the rings looked cheap, she, the journalist, tallied them up and they were 7k! No, you moron. They looked CHEAP, as in tacky and trashy. Plenty of expensive stuff is cheap, tacky and trashy looking. That she didn't know the difference suggests she's cheap, tacky and trashy herself and thinks a price tag makes something good.

Then Megsy is carrying Prada gloves and a clutch, that she also is waving about. I didn't get the prada merching tweets - I wonder if Prada is ticked off about that.

Precisely, R408. Most people don't understand the difference between "expensive" and "in good taste," because they either weren't brought up in a social class that would pass along this knowledge, or haven't been motivated to learn the difference in adulthood.

No, Jessica Mulroney makes Robbie Williams and the celebrity crowd at Eugenie's wedding look legit, as if they'll be damed and knighted by the queen very soon. There is no one royal-adjacent tackier than Mulroney. Did Robbie Williams try to Pippa it up the stairs? Then he and his wife and everyone else has a way to go. Kate and William also didn't need to extract their kids from the other kids with a quickness the way the did at Harry's wedding, lest someone take an obnoxious photo exploiting them and posting it on instagram.

There's no one tackier than that Muroney chick. Ugh. If she's not a prostitution whore it's entirely by accident.

The fake-pregnancy coat was to take focus away from Eug and Kate and everyone else. The multiple rings stuffed on to Meg's stumpy, fat, freckled fingers look terrible and chavvy. MEMEME strikes again. The hat, hair and cosmetics are disastrous. She has learned nothing from proximity to the RF. Awful woman.

From the "Eugenie Wedding" thread

The blind items about whatshername’s “pregnancy” have officially dropped! Here’s Enty:

“For those who say she isn't with child because she is scheduled to go on a Pacific tour, the rumor is that she isn't going. The buzz I'm hearing is that only the male royal is going. The reason is because there is a risk of Zika virus infection in that part of the world in pregnant women. If she's indeed pregnant they'll have to announce it as the reason she's not doing the tour. Lots of money and time have been spent on logistics and planning on this tour to include them both, so if she pulls out it's going to result in a lot of wasted money. Apparently they were specifically asked not to try to get preggo before this tour... it'll be interesting to see how this shakes out. If she goes then it's just rumor and nothing else...”

Markle's make-up was really poor. She went for a very heavy-handed no make-up make up. I'm not sure she had her lashes on, but she made up for it by spackling on bronzer so her cheekbones looked like iimplants. The worst move was the mauve -y dead toned lipstick with visible liner.

by Anonymousreply 42010/13/2018

Enty has to make shit up because there is no way he sources are coming in with legit, high interest blinds on the daily. Reality doesn't meet his content demands. And everyone knows that gossip sites were where rumors were spread about actors and actresses who didn't bounce on the casting couch when requested, or whom were damaged in some way by directors or producers and needed their reputation trashed. It's also a way for Party A to undermine Party B. Meghan has been pumping out trash about Kate since she got near Harry. Also trash about Camilla. The only one she's left alone is the queen, and that's because she's the queen's favorite. And Charles' favorite. Everyone's favorite, except for jealous Kate and Camilla. So if she wants pregnancy speculation, she'll have her people go to Enty or whomever. I think she gets the idea off existing gossip. People were like no, she's not going to get pregnant because she has this tour. I just don't think the people at Soho are bright enough to know this shit on their own. They just read what people are saying and pull a story together based on that, to keep her relevant. If she's not relevant, she can't merch.

One of the reports said that Meghan doesn't dress like a well-tended royal as she is indebted to (and working for) Soho House, and her intention is to dress like one of the trashy/tacky women they're trying to get as members. Now a Soho member probably wouldn't wear the "Gee, do you think I'm pregnant?" coat, but she would wear the rings.

She's in a weird bind because she probably wants to ditch the Sowhores for whatever she imagines to be worthy of Royalty but she by intellect and depth of character is probably best suited to sticking with the Sowhores.

Don't the Sussexes at least have a butler or maid that makes sure that their shoes aren't dirty or have holes in the soles and take the plastic shipping protectors off her heels and metal guards on the bottom of the handbags? Staff could put those adhesive cushions on the inside back of her too big shoes so they fit better and don't slip up and down while she's walking. They obviously can't pay attention to details on their own or problem solve. I thought KP lodgings came with staff/help.

R414 - The Zika fear is stupid and exaggerated? You must have missed the news coverage of those women and their babies with the misshapen heads. There is no such thing as an "exaggerated" risk if it's your baby.

Exposure to Zika is considered dangerous at any stage of pregnancy AND women planning to become pregnant are advised to wait at least 8 weeks after exposure to Zika to begin trying. Do you really think the BRF and Harry would risk harm to their first child especially with a 37 year old first-time mother?! And then risk the opprobrium if something does happen?

Either she's not pregnant or they'll suddenly announce that she won't be going on the Tonga and Fiji legs of the tour. If they haven't announced that change in schedule yet, she either isn't pregnant, or they're waiting till they're well away on the tour to announce it.

The two things that absolutely will not coexist are she's pregnant and she's going to two Zika zones.

They supposedly live in Nottingham Cottage although there are rumors and people who insist Meghan does not live with Harry, but rather at the Soho Farmhouse. When she took a separate car from Kate after Wimbledon, the ex-boyfriend of Markus Anderson, Omid Skobie, who is now a royal "expert" (meaning he carries Meghan's water for her) said it was because they live in different places (Kate was going back to Kensington Palace, where most people assume Meghan also lived), that Meghan was going toOxfordshire or whatever. People were all "Aha! The Soho Farmhouse!" Scobie came back and hastily amended that Harry and Meghan have a Costwolds country place. It's been variously reported that it is rented or purchased. BUT, nobody seems to know what house it is exactly. Every week or so a different house is said to be THE house. So I think she IS at the Soho Farmhouse, and Harry probably bunks there too at times. I don't think either are really welcome hanging out at Kate and William's headquarters.

Always has been. Still, even HE couldn't stomach her middle class Middleton boring until it was clear no one with any spark would have him, even if he'll be king someday. Not his fault - even Princess Diana said Harry would always get the girls. They are deadly, deadly boring individually, but exponentially as a couple. The athletic [manish], stylish [styled by professionals to an almost hospital like sterility], dedicated [criticized consistently in the UK press for doing fewer solo engagements than almost anyone else], is exactly who Wills deserves and all he could get. The real question is: why does Meghan Markle, the relatively successful American actress who married the hottest UK prince trigger you so?

Meghan and Harry have staff - Amy the aid, and that Samantha woman, but they seem to be more on the admin / logistical side and not on the home front. If, indeed, Meghan is in debt to Soho - and HARRY acting like their bitch as well as Meghan clearly being their bitch suggests it is possible - her debts are his debts so he is probably happy to have her merch her flat little tuchus off so he doesn't have to pay. One "insider" says that Charles is fair, but is not about to solve Meghan's debt problem for her. That is Harry's look out. If any of this is true it would explain why they do not have staff, as in valet's and people looking after their grooming and clothing. The only time Meghan has come up truly groomed was that one trip where the label which supplied her clothing also sent a stylist and hair person, as per their policy.

After the Queen dies and Charles becomes the king and Will becomes the Prince of Wales, will he keep the title of the Duke of Cambridge? And is Harry’s title going to be elevated in some way?

by Anonymousreply 47510/13/2018

When Charles becomes King, William becomes Duke of Cornwall and Cambridge. The Duchy of Cornwall comes with a large income. This is why Charles as the current Duke of Cornwall is very rich. The Duchy of Cornwall is bestowed on the Heir Apparent.

There’s no reason for Harry to become Duke of York - he already has his own Duchy (of Sussex). Besides, Andrew could conceivably marry again and with his new wife produce a son who would be the next Duke of York.

by Anonymousreply 47610/13/2018

R476 again - I forgot to add that William becomes Prince of Wales once Charles as King crowns him as Prince of Wales - it isn’t automatic.

For example if Charles predeceases the Queen, on her death William would be King having never been Prince if Wales unless the Queen crowned him as such between Charles’s death and her own.

There are lots of rules and it gets complicated and always depends on the circumstances at the time.

The tour will be interesting on two fronts... for Meagain does she become a star who carries it off? Or does she seem to talk too much and then be cast as pushy and ill informed? The tour will leave an indelible mark on perception of her. She's banged on enough about the Commonwealth that she plainly sees a place for her as de facto Queen of that.... we'll see how she plays it and it plays as she does.

Second, how does the friendship between Meagain and Mulroney emerge once the trip is over? Is Jass Mulroney the type whose ego can handle being a servant? Because that's what she is on this trip. No selfies (though there is a Soho House in Sydney... I wonder if there will be any coincidental publicity campaign planned? Will the happy accident of Markus in town just happen to happen?) So Jass can either cope kept entirely in the background, zipping zippers and gluing tendrils in place, or she tries to insert herself into visibility. And you can imagine how much Her Royal Highness will come to enjoy that idea...

R486 - and we all know that there is a Ruling Standard for PDA and that no one, least of all a future King and Queen of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, may be allowed to have slightly more reserved personalities and still really love each other, as opposed to the extravagant displays of a D-list actress from L.A. who has spent the last twenty years promoting herself?

Clearly, MeAgain loves Harry more than Kate loves William, because Kate doesn't drape herself all over her husband whenever a camera turns their way.

That's more Meghan's style.

I just love how blatant it all is. Hey, guess what, folks? Jessica Mulroney, Meghan's lady friend, is going with her on this tour. They don't like to be apart.

Yes, her hubby is in media, but in the normal course following Harry and his spouse on a "give them something to do" trip is not an assignment he'd receive.

This is going to go on quite some time. When it's over, I wonder what Harry will have left. He keeps digging himself deeper, and this year he's burning bridges at Invictus, what with only attending two days and giving his "did nothing" spouse the high profile closing speech, which is unbelievably disrespectful and patronizing. Hey, Invictus is a spotlight, so lets give it to Meghan. It's a slap in the face to the athletes who don't know her, and all those working behind the scenes. What does he have besides Invictus, other than a generic "Commonwealth" spot which he doesn't seem to understand. Meghan seems to think it is still a colonist type of relationship. And his empty Major title

I'm quite surprised that the DM hasn't jumped on this yet, at least not that I've seen today.

R506 - I'm also a bit taken aback, although I shouldn't be at this point given that Meghan Markle showed very early with the Vanity Fair article and then the threats to the British press that she has the balls of the proverbial brass gorilla. I made a joke about the brass knuckles earlier re the rings across her right hand, but I'm a great believer in unconscious symbolism. Nice demure quite navy outfit to the royal wedding, but brass knuckles on her right hand as she prepares to set out for her first major royal tour with her girlfriend in tow.

I'd say she's not just wearing the trousers in this relationship, but the dildo.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex were involved in a dramatic mid-air scare when a £40 million private jet taking them to a star-studded party was hit by lightning.

The luxury Dassault Falcon 7X aircraft was struck as it flew the couple to Amsterdam last month for the opening party of a posh members’ club.

At least 30 million volts surged through the fuselage after the bolt hit the nose cone – just inches from the plane’s vital radar navigation equipment.

After the scare on Friday, September 21, the aircraft, which costs about £20,000 to hire for a return trip to Amsterdam from the UK, landed safely at the city’s Schiphol airport.

The BRF had enough non-bland types with Diana and Fergie. Kate's and William's low-key, low-drama blandness is just what the doctor ordered. Harry and MeAgain can be the comi-tragic relief, because of how far they are from the throne. That said, the downfalls of Pss. Margaret, Diana, and Fergie should serve as warning signs to Meghan Markle that there's only so far you can go without consequences.

R510 - "Jess"? You two on a first-name basis?

Since when does the British taxpayer support the services of a "stylist" for the wife of the sixth in line who just happens to be wealthy in her own right, have loyalties to her own fashion career and is clearly using her connection to said wife of said sixth in line to further those, and who has kept said Duchess in clothing that doesn't support the British fashion industry?

The erstwhile Meghan Markle is ever more clearly a ruthless opportunist and she is making a fool of the British taxpayer, her husband, the BRF. Frankly, the latter deserve it for letting her in.

Right, Diana, the expert, who got herself killed before Harry was 13. Harry hasn't been able to get ANY girls. Chelsey hung around but despite many tries she couldn't pull the trigger and they were over. Cressida was a shining example of "She's just not that into you."

You look at William's past girlfriends and women friends, both imagined and assumed, and it's a line up of similar types. Responsible, social, educated, family and civic-oriented grown ups who have all, along with William, moved along to the next phase of their lives where they are raising young families.

Neither of Harry's exes have married - perhaps they are as commitment phobic as he has. Other than those two, his hook-ups, rumored and real, is a line up of trash. If that is "getting all the girls" to some people, than they must relate to trash (that would explain their resentment of girls who have their shit together). Now he's ended up with a Z lister, an out and out grifter, older than he is, empty as a blank sheet of paper, made of of avaricious and massive thirst. And doesn't he looks happy! Scratching himself, restless, getting balder by the minute, looking anxious, seeking approval. Even his supposed magic touch with kids is waning.

Harry is they key here. What is his problem? Whenever I read about his drug problem the article always says things like, "But his friends weren't the ones responsible for his experimentation with cannabis." Really? Do they think we're morons? CANNABIS? He didn't have a fucking weed problem. Weed is not a problem. Weed doesn't cause Harry-type behavior. Drinking problems run in his family on the female side (his great grandma and his great aunt, for two) And he's both irresponsible and massively entitled. But what else is there? Meghan is not the problem. The problem is a) Harry couldn't "see" her when a kid on the street can tell who she is, and b) Harry was at the point where he ended UP with a Meghan Markle. It is impossible for not just William, but any other royal dude like Peter Phillips, for example, to end up with Meghan Markle. Phillips' bride comes from an ordinary background, but as a PERSON, she is steady. Markle is a mess, and I think she sort of tells us who Harry is.

When William and Kate met and began dating, Diana's tragic, hugely dramatic death and all the public histrionics that followed afterwards were in the relatively recent past. Kate knew she was expected to be the anti-Diana, and, in fact, she was built for it. She was sane, functional, had a loving, intact family, was good at school (Diana couldn't even pass her O levels), very athletic, gorgeous, generous, and loyal. Nobody wanted another Diana. Or another Fergie. It was all very recent history.

Now it's fifteen years later, which means instead of Diana's death being a mere five years in the past, it's twenty plus years in the past, and people are forgetting that Diana nearly did in the monarchy. Some of the press that didn't know her thought Meghan would bring a lot of glamor and Hwood style pizazz to the BRF, but instead she's bringing - what is that? It's just weird. Sure, there's stilettos, and bare legs, and her porn star make-up, and she definitely loves the spotlight, but there's something not "there" about it, and her clothes aren't fun or glamorous. SHE doesn't look fun or glamorous. Her clothes are strange, and we have to wait til they are merched by the label to know what we're supposed to take from her ensemble. ("Hey folks, the Duchess is wearing our bespoke coat woven by BeeBalm dwelling garden gnomes ant it cost 7k!!") And her sugars go - WOW, Charles must be crazy about her to let her spend that much on a coat!

There's a narrative about Meghan - and there's the actual Meghan. The actual Meghan, in how she dresses and behaves, doesn't live up to the narrative the media tries to create for her.

R528, the lack of British designers thing is where "Meghan is in debt to Soho House and merching to pay them off" storyline gets some legs. British labels are a lot more cautious about merching with the royal family. It's against the rules. They don't want to end up penalized somewhere down the line. Maybe they've received a caution through channels or something. It's not as if Meghan's merching is subtle. I mean the rings she wore to the wedding were ridiculous. She had her hand up, showed them off. the gloves and clutch were sort of props/set dressing for the rings, and the ring merchant went in big with a huge close-up of her hand, identifying and pricing every one. They needed that close-up for their promotion and Meghan made sure she gave it to them.

Mulroney is also a mercher, and she has been building her relationships with labels, although she doesn't exactly dress the stars. She DID dress Sophie Trudeau. That prime ministerial connection gave her a bit of traction in the fashion industry, and she was able to get samples, freebies, first renditions, bags, shoes, etc. We can all see by what Meghan wears over and over which labels work with Mulroney. She still has to hustle though. She still has to get on the phone and beg for the freebies and loans; she still has to sell. If you look at what Meghan wears, despite the hype and the claims, she doesn't really move the merchandise. And obviously that chick at Givenchy is all about notifying the world whenever she dresses Meghan. I'd really like to see Givenchy's financials - bet they are dire. Once in awhile a real label will work with Meghan for a specific event, such as when Dior gave her some pieces for an ... Ireland?.. visit and you better believe they sent a stylist and hair person along with the clothes so that Meghan wouldn't destroy their reputation. On that trip you could tell which pieces were the label with the stylist because they were the ones that fit, and those were the clothes she wore with nice, Suits-level hair and make-up. As soon as that visit was done, it was back to tendrils, caked on nude make-up, and poor fit.

by Anonymousreply 53010/14/2018

R524 my vote is all three. I think Harry is at least a little bit gay. Cuck because he thinks or thought he was in control, and he got played. Fool because he looked at her and thought she'd fool other people when he was the only person who was fooled. He is Dunning-Kruger in red hair - thinks he's smarter than the average bear when he's dumber than most. My favorite thing about her is how lowest common denominator she is - she's absurd. Kate got kudos for influencing the purchase of maternity coats across the nation - this emerged as news a few days before the wedding, and so Meghan arrives to the wedding trying to make her coat look like a maternity coat. At the wedding, Eugenie does a full on, down to the floor curtsey to the queen that looks magnificent with her wedding gown; outside the church when the women curtsey, Meghan goes all the way to ground in her stiff navy outerwear and stilettos. Kate is photographed at polo wrangling the kids, including a widely distributed shot of her running down a small incline in her stilettos. Next time Meghan is out, she apes Kate's pose as she tries to run across a field. It's cringe-making, and I'm sure everybody around Harry makes jokes, and he knows it. But too late. He was stupid. He's also only sixth in line. He's not that important. He knows it, which is why he made this desperate grab at the spotlight one more time. Princess Margaret was once hot stuff - this was before the queen's kids grew up and Charles' love life, along with Andrew's (remember Koo Stark) and Anne's romantic adventures took over and Margaret was relegated to the caftan-wearing has been in Mustique hanging out with a boy toy. Prince Andrew was also once hot stuff - had a bigger wedding than Harry. But for all his scandal, Andrew, I think, plays the game of being the spare better than Harry.

I think the fact that Jessica Mulroney is going on this tour speaks once again to how on their own Harry and Meghan actually are. If they had a real budget - or if their budget weren't being diverted to "other things", there could be a wardrobe purchased without Mulroney needing to "make enquiries". One would think it would be non-Brit labels pursuing the supposedly glamorous new Duchess. Real stars get samples sent to them, unasked, all the time. The brand or label is just hoping the item will be worn. That Meghan's girlfriend has to work the phones and email and hustle clothes for her, that it doesn't happen without prompting, says a lot. It would also explain why so much of what she receives is crap. "Well, let's give her this. It's been discontinued." "Oh Jaime, would you pull the first rendition of that cocktail suit from storage? The one we're now doing cropped, with a reworked jacket. The first rendition has a massive peplum dragging off it to the knee - you can't miss it."

Some people do, I guess, R580. They’re front page on the tabloids but barely mentioned in the respectable papers, although the Invictus Games are worth a mention.

Their fan base, like that for all the Royal Family except the Queen, constitutes fangurls and old ladies who will be dead in twenty years’ time.

The Queen is highly respected and her last visit here, which was almost certainly her last visit here, was met with interest and genuine sadness that she’ll not be around for a whole lot longer.

Then we’ll have King Charles as our Head of State living 17,000 km away - no thanks. I find them all entertaining from a gossip/camp point of view (which is why I’m here!) but politically and constitutionally? Roll on the Republic once the Queen is dead.

I believe Harry is a fraud (R589), but what are you referring to with the knocking heads together? sounds awful.

I assume Mr Jess Mulroney is coming along as cover for the lovebirds?

Jesus. This is surreal at this point.

Re the link at R552.

I scanned through all the pictures and the only one grinning like the faker she is is Sparkle.

In fact no one behind them is smiling in all the pictures but one blond woman is is shown smiling in one single group shot - the last one.

Are those really their staff?

If so, sheesh! Not happy campers.

Can you point me to a vid of Harry knocking the boys heads together R589? I keep hearing about it but I can't seem to find it.

R594, it happened during their walkabout earlier this month. The video should be linked on this thread or the one just prior.

Jess and her gay hubby have 3 young kids but both are going? Lots of comments on articles about them being lesbians. They have not been very careful.

R596 they just got off a 21 hour flight and the staff would have been in Business class - still nice on the 380 but not as nice as in First. Having done that flight many times I can tell you they will be desperate for a dump, a shower and clean clothes.
