Part II of the "Harry and that gurl, Meghan, are quitting London and Kensington Palace for THIS" thread

Do we want to continue this conversation?

The last thread was full.

So many people with so many (very interesting) opinions.

It's going to take A LOT of work and (tax payers money) to make this shithole look like a Royal abode.

This is the same view that's posted in the DM; the gate is in the side yard but not far from the front door.

I read that W&K's kids are very limited play area-wise at KP. There's very little garden space. In many ways The Queen should get the hell out of Buckingham Palace at her age and let the younger ones move in. They have grounds there the size of a London park.

by Anonymousreply 911/26/2018

R9 - the kids have Kensington Gardens and Hyde Park right next door. Gasp, they have to share it with the public but there's still plenty of space to roam around. Their Spanish nanny often takes them to the park and the photographers are warned not to take pictures. Of course, there's always one or two paparazzi who don't play by the rules but for the most part, they're left alone.

You just don't get it. The point for even HAVING a Buckingham Palace in the first place is that it's the palace in which the sovereign resides in the capital city.

Harry and Meghan don't matter at all in the grand scheme of things. All he is, ultimately, is the younger son of the current heir to the throne, and all she is, ultimately, is the younger son's wife. Harry will never rule himself, nor will his children. They all are simply minor royals, no matter how popular they are right now.

For those of you saying that H&M are moving to the country by moving to Windsor, they most certainly are not. They are just on the other side of Heathrow, just barely out of the M25. Windsor and surrounds are decidedly suburban. It's a suburbia that does not bear much resemblance to US suburbia as it is much older and more established, but it is suburbia nonetheless.

The English countryside is something else entirely. They aren't terribly far away from it in Windsor, but they're barely countryside adjacent there.

Check for loose floor boards throughout, my darling Henry. There is a secret wall panel in one of the larger bedrooms - PUSH! One of the steps on the staircase is slightly giggly - pry the board away from the frame. In the cellar, you'll find a brick wall marked by a painted red dot at the upper right - pull it down, my child! In the attic you'll see a huge empty chest - lift the bottom out, my love. Finally, get yourself a shovel and take 45 paces exactly north east from the rear door and dig, Harry, DIG! A treasure trove of Royal proportions awaits you, dearest boy. No one ever came to visit me whilst I lived here, so they didn't know that I actually ran an Antique Shoppe with all the shit I grifted from the Aristocracy my whole life. It's all yours, my boy.

YOU are the one who doesn't get it. The Queen spends as little time as possible at Buckingham Palace. It's an absolute dump that is full of mice and hasn't had any modernization done since 1950. She and Prince Phillip prefer to spend most of their time at Windsor Castle. It's her favorite place amongst all her homes. That's why she spends Thursday night through Monday morning at Windsor Castle. And no Harry will never rule. Neither will Queen Elizabeth, Prince Charles, Prince William or any other British royal family members. Queen Elizabeth reigns. She does not and will not ever RULE anything.

It's what they're going to give Megan to live in after the divorce, they must see it coming. Diana ended up with that huge Kensington Palace apartment and they can't have that again.

The monarchy will be officially hosted and some of its offices will be located in Buckingham Palace. Charles will remain in Clarence House after the Buckingham Palace renovations are completed, which will take years. I doubt that after the Queen dies any British monarch will ever really live in Buckingham Palace again. The public will have greater access, I guess there's that, but something will be lost.

by Anonymousreply 4611/26/2018

I don't think Charles or any member of the Royal Family is going to do anything that lessens the monarchy. Maybe downsizing the number of free loaders is smart but doing anything that diminishes the importance of the monarchy (vacating Buckingham Palace as the official residence) would send a message that the monarchy isn't important enough to sustain. Charles may dislike BP but I bet he still moves in.

As the Sugary scribe who wrote about W&K's "limited play area", it is a good thing they get to helicopter to Anmer Hall, their country estate where there is play area galore!

Two parking lots are planned to be put in at Frogmore Cottage, so perhaps Baby S can frolic a bit away from the residence proper, more towards the mausoleum, lest he/she risk getting bashed by a car, like poor Guy.

Will and Kate also have her parents' estate in Bucklebury, where play area is likewise not limited.

The Sussexes have Frogmore. Soho House and its ultra chic pinterest-y converted cow sheds are very cozy for a kid, but I don't know about play areas that are G-rated.

R47, here's the thing. Today Richard Palmer revealed that at the time of the expensive KP renovation, William signed an undertaking that he would remain at KP even after Charles becomes king. Clarence House is a beautiful place, much more so than Buckingham Palace. Is he going to move to BP and leave CP empty? Will has promised to stay put. CP will not be designated for Harry and Meghan no matter how their fans fantasize. Charles is comfortable there. BP is supposedly impossible and no monarchs were happy about moving in. Maybe he'll be the one to say fuck it, I'm staying at CP but of course BP is there as offices, reception, events, guest quarters, etc.

I think Charles doesn't need to do anything that lessens the monarchy - the death of Queen Elizabeth will do that. She's the link to the glory days of the modern monarchy - World War II and her parents standing firm with the people of London (that's how it went, right?) . She's the connection. Charles will be king because there's no process in place for him not to be. It's apparently no small thing to abolish the monarchy. It surely won't get done before QE dies. But it has eroded over time, and there's no way to stop it. I think it will end during William's reign, and George will never be king.

If the BRF has relegated her to some ramshackle frog dump directly under Heathrow's flight approach, no way in hell are they gonna give her access to anything remotely valuable. Nah, gurl's gonna have to merch Bassett or some shit and humble brag how normal and down to earth she is when the truth of the matter is it's the only way she is going to be able to decently furnish her semi-detached dwelling. Maybe if he hadn't come tearing out of the gate as some entitled bitch screaming about which tiara she would wear, abusing the help and trying to steal attention at other people's weddings they might have given her at least something detached.

I don't recall anything controversial or about race on that thread. Most interesting thing on it was that Meghan allegedly made Kate cry during Charlotte's fitting for her bridesmaid's dress. Charlotte was fidgety and Meghan complained that she would ruin her wedding. I think the poster said it came from a private FB thread. I don't know if it was substantiated or not. I opined that Meghan pulled a "control your child" implying that Kate's parenting skills were lacking.

This thread should be more properly titled, "Harry and that gurl, Meghan, get booted out of London." Not just KP. LONDON. I love how Richard Palmer was all - apparently there was no other royal property in London available. Because he knows there's plenty. As well as more aesthetic, sizeable, better situated outside of London, on castle and estate grounds. But Frogmore Cottage it is. In a bog. Under a flight path. Subdivided into small units. Two adjacent parking lots planned! As the cottage is quite close to a road (security boundary or not) that cuts into what green space immediately surrounds.

This is a like a Jane Austen novel, only darker spirited. So maybe a Bronte. "Reduced circumstances" isn't half of it.

Get them out of the way completely - no London for you! Dreary residence, dreary bog Flight path The planning permissions don't indicate upgrades, but improvements, things that need improving, such as drainage, a canopy extension, and I suppose, parking lots! Very cozy, two parking lots on either side of the suburban home. Certainly if Harry wants to decorate it to a standard, he is welcome to dip into his after tax trust income. Surely the family won't object. I suspect the family purse has been shut and now it's down to Harry and Megs to earn their way back.

That the family has done this with a wee Harkle en route is very interesting.

It was probably a mistake for Markle to loudly complain of little Charlotte just to put Kate down. The fucking balls on that bitch.

That it has been brought out now - CHARLOTTE!!! - says the gloves are off. Charlotte was recently estimated to be worth more than George by the metric of influence - everything she wears sells out, is searched, etc., more than anyone else. THAT is a popular royal.

Frogmore Plantation is named after Frogmore at Windsor Castle! This will be a scandal!

"Although the name “Frogmore” cannot be traced to an exact date, the earliest reference to an area called Frogmore in Louisiana, Lynette says, appears on a map from 1815. Frogmore Plantation was built by Daniel Morris, an Englishman, who Tanner suspects named the plantation after Windsor Castle’s Frogmore, a residence so loved by the British royals that Queen Victoria and Prince Albert chose to be interred there.

A gift shoppe! "Frogmore is named after Frogmore, England, and the store boasts its name with its Frogmore t-shirts in several colors, all which have a large plantation frog wearing his planter hat. Finally, there are frog souvenirs and loads of cute frog toys for children."

This sounds cool, though: "Shake a tambourine and participate in learning the "double voicing" technique used on plantations for secret song."

R163, But I do have their commemorative coin!

The accusations of racism against Queen Elizabeth are really despicable. She was the person who first welcomed Nelson Mandela to a meeting of the Commonwealth Countries, before he had even been elected to public office. And maintained a friendship with him afterwards, until his death. And she never mentioned the protocol, so he always called her 'Elizabeth', and not 'Ma-am'. She famously danced with Kwame Nkrumah during her visit to Ghana, and probably secured Ghana's place in the Commonwealth.

I can believe some of the other accusations of racism by various royals, but not by HM. It seems like she sees herself as the Queen over 'all her realms' and that includes the nations in Africa where she is Queen.

As the gloves are off with the BRF versus the Harkles, it would not surprise me if the dress fitting story never happened and Meghan was never near Charlotte. However, Meghan constantly plants negative fake stories about Kate and other royals, while smarming up about her nonexistent closeness to Prince Charles (if they were close, they would not be going to Frogmore Cottage). It feels like a "two can play at that game" ploy. Let's weaponize Charlotte against Meghan and see how she enjoys the fallout.

R189, Meg hadn’t been doing well in her new role regardless of her heritage. Please remember, American critical race theory doesn’t apply to Britain. Notice Harry’s popularity is down too, and not just because he’s married to our Bean, but because he isn’t doing well in his new role, either. To save herself from more public backlash, our Meg needs to: Stop merching, stop leaking lies to the press, demonstrate true interest in her new job by adhering to its actual requirements, brush up on formal etiquette and British history, and (for the love of god) learn to dress appropriately (British, conservative fashions). Oh, and no more PDA, it’s undignified for representatives of a head of state to paw at someone, even if that someone is their new spouse. We (maybe not all but certainly most) had high hopes for MM; she’s been a total disappointment.

Here's a newsflash:

MM is a grown woman with her own life and marriage. She doesn't need to please anyone but her husband and herself. Unlike the rest of that family, she's actually worked for a living and has her own mind and identity. She wouldn't be afraid to work again, and could now actually make more money away from the Royals than with them.

It was totally immersing and investing herself in trying to please the Royals that drove Princes Di to anorexia and suicide attempts. MM is not that needy or intimidated. If she had to walk away tomorrow she could, because she's not as dependent upon all the pomp and circumstance and inflated "purpose" as those lifetime retainers, the Windsors.

I'd say its in their own best interest to not alienate MM, because she could blow the whole lid off that racist vipers nest like no one's had the opportunity to before.

Living away from the RF might suit her just fine. For all the fun we're making of it, she's still going to end up in a beautiful house (once they're done with it) on lush grounds with live in staff, a hunky husband she loves, a pied-à-terre at Kensington, and a new baby to occupy her for quite a while. Plus her mom will be onhand. If I were her I'd take the pay cut and stay home most of the time, accompanying Harry just to the most important functions.

Really, she looked beautiful, modest, healthy and comfortable in that outfit. I mean, that's a classic silhouette Jackie Kennedy wore all the time, UNpregnant.

What I am unaware of is how she supposedly embarrased the entire country on her tour through the Pacific. Did she hold her new husband's hand too much, or something? What is the outcry about?

by Anonymousreply 27511/28/2018

R269 - Well, you know the old saying, "Just because you're paranoid doesn't mean they aren't out to get you."

I don't know about gay, bi, or coke addict, but at east a few of the other qualities on that list seem appropriate: he is dim, he is pussy-whipped (please!), he probaby has extensive experience with depression, as the photos from Vegas show he was something of a party boy, and his womanising was part of the reason his relationships with Chelsy Davy and Cressida Bonas.

And she does control him. That was obvious from the start - do you think Harry would have threatened the British press on his own? Or had the spine to tell her that she shouldn't do that Vanity Fair article because if you want to gain the BRF's confidence, you don't talk to the press - that discretion is all?

All in all, it's a pretty good description of Harry with a few odd suspect bits thrown in.

However, in the Queen and the machine behind the BRF, Meghan's finally come up against something she can't control or pussywhip or force to her will.

Hence, her "home base" in a dull market town in a mere 5-bedroom outdated not particularly splendid cottage, with just a couple of rooms in St. James Palace like any other MINOR ROYAL when she and Harry have to stay in London. Rather than her dreams of being on an equal footing with the future Queen Consort of Great Britain and Northern Ireland.

Just wait till HM is raptured and William and Kate are Prince and Princess of Wales and raking in the revenues from the Duchy of Cornwall, and their long memories of how Sparkle acted when she got in the door, and they ruthlessly but carefully marginalise the Sussexes and their children.

William strikes me as a once burnt, twice shy sort of bloke, with a long and unforgiving memory, especially where his wife and children are concerned.

Sparkle should have taken the longer view and realised that the name of the game here is ingratiation, not auditioning for Better Ingenue Duchess.

Lots of people didn't even know who she was when the news broke, and if it weren't for "Suits", NOBODY would have known about her as an actress at all. Toronto isn't Hollywood.

I predict that they will get Apt 1 at Kensington Palace in due course. In time, we'll see reports of "the D and D of Sussex will be STAYING at Kensington Palace while in London." Then it will get leaked that they're STAYING in Apt 1. Then, at some point, it will be reported that they're LIVING in Apt 1, and then that Apt will will be their London home. The BRF are good about trickling this sort of information out to the public. I'm sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but I really DO think that things are being blown way out of proportion here at DL. H and M are just fine, and who knows - perhaps they actually DID choose FC for themselves. On another note, I'm sure that Harry has versed her well on the snakes she has to watch out for within the family - those would be Andrew and Fergie, no doubt. Andrew is hell bent on his daughters being perpetually recognized as the BLOOD PRINCESSES they are.

Is Frogmore Cottage that bad? Do the Sussexes entertain friends or throw intimate dinner parties? Are they entertained by friends?

Usually at that stage of life, married people have other couples over for casual dinners and go on double dates for drinks/dinners out. Harry seems to have a group of friends; do they see them socially?

I’m just trying to imagine why they wouldn’t want to have a little cosmopolitan social life in London. Why didn’t they get a nice flat in town, if they want to break tradition? That seems pretty acceptable; a little pied a terre.

I've never FFed any posts or threads just because I don't like the subject matter. But the idea that the Queen is sending Harry to Frogmore as some twisted joke, because of some obscure American plantation, really beggars belief. I do know my American history, and somehow managed to never hear of this plantation until this thread, but the idea seems to have quickly gained a lot of traction. Frogmore has been where Victoria and Albert and scores of other royals have been buried. I don't understand people twisting themselves into pretzels trying to make some racial 'burn' happen, when many of us don't give it much thought. I've otherwise liked these threads, but never really came across some of the racial obsession I've seen like upthread.

Don't let the door hit you on the way out, r317. Tootles.

I don't get why so many, both pro- and anti-Bean, don't get that her supposed 'high popularity' or 'current visibility' really mean almost nothing in the scheme of things in the Royal Family. She's the wife of the 6th-in-line, she's the equivalent of Fergie or Sophie Wessex. Comparisons to Diana are silly, as she was Princess of Wales immediately from her marriage, and was supposed to be the future Queen. That's Kate's position now (after Camilla).

It doesn't matter how 'boring' or 'frumpy' Kate and William are; they are the future monarchs and therefore far more important than anyone else in the organization, except for Charles & Cam. They will also control the keys to the kingdom literally, ie. the funds for the rest, so to irritate or alienate them is akin to self-implosion in that family. All this fuss over H & M is transient at best, purely temporary. In a few years they won't hardly be on anyone's radar anymore.

Those who think Megs is going to have some kind of major, Diana-like public visibility and role are kidding themselves. That's not how it works in that group.

[quote]Here's a newsflash: MM is a grown woman with her own life and marriage. She doesn't need to please anyone but her husband and herself. Unlike the rest of that family, she's actually worked for a living and has her own mind and identity. She wouldn't be afraid to work again, and could now actually make more money away from the Royals than with them.

[quote]It was totally immersing and investing herself in trying to please the Royals that drove Princes Di to anorexia and suicide attempts. MM is not that needy or intimidated. If she had to walk away tomorrow she could, because she's not as dependent upon all the pomp and circumstance and inflated "purpose" as those lifetime retainers, the Windsors.

[quote]I'd say its in their own best interest to not alienate MM, because she could blow the whole lid off that racist vipers nest like no one's had the opportunity to before.

MM married a senior UK royal, she knew in doing that she was marrying not only him, but his family and their "Firm", and basically what that entailed in terms of her future career. Her career melded with her marriage more of less, her future work expectations pretty much mapped out. In exchange she got a royal husband, relative wealth, access to tremendous power and priceless objects (jewels, etc) and exclusive secure housing. Not a bad deal; is she doesn't want it there will be others who will.

Of course she could leave and make her own way again. No doubt. There's nothing to stop her either; the Windsors would simply hold the door open for her and carry on as before. She'd have one problem with the kid/s: they technically are in custody of the monarch, so she'd have to stay in the UK is she wants to continue raising them. But otherwise, bye and move on.

Hell, rather than pay her family to keep quiet she'll reverse course and pay them to continue squawking and then she'll demand tv interviews to counter what they are saying to defend her, Dimwit's and the baby's honor.

Prince Harry’s ex Chelsy Davy appears to be following in the footsteps of his wife, Meghan.

The 33-year-old blonde is launching lifestyle blog AYA, which will focus on travel — echoing Meghan’s website, The Tig, which she shut down in 2017 when her relationship with Harry became serious.

‘My vision for AYA is for it to become a luxury African lifestyle brand that represents “everything Africa, everything luxury”,’ explains Chelsy.

‘I want AYA to capture the beauty and spirit of Africa in every way... in travel, apparel, fashion and artisan.’ She’s certainly got the patter down.

by Anonymousreply 36711/28/2018

SHORT SHRIFT? Meghan Markle ‘determined her child won’t be paraded around in shorts like Kate Middleton’s son Prince George’, reports claim

MEGHAN Markle is clearly a very modern royal.

And according to Heat, she'll continue to break the mould after she and husband Prince Harry welcome their first child next spring.

The magazine claims that Meghan, 37, wants to "break with tradition" and "reflect the modern woman", a decision that will influence the way she raises her son or daughter.

Apparently, it could even affect the way she dresses them.

We often see Kate Middleton and Prince William's son Prince George in shorts - a tradition in the Royal Family - but Meghan may not follow suit.

A source tells the publication: "She's determined her child won't be paraded around in little shorts like Prince George."

The reason little Prince George is rarely seen in trousers or dungarees is because it's a silent British class marker, according to an etiquette expert.

William Hanson claims trousers are deemed “suburban” – something no self-respecting royal would want to be considered.

He said while he doubts there "would have been a memo sent around Kensington Palace telling George to wear shorts", Kate would be aware of clothing protocol.

William added: "I don't think that the sartorial rule of shorts for young boys would be a new one for Catherine.

He told The Sun Online: “Not only does The Duchess of Cambridge have to worry about dressing herself but she has to dress her own children appropriately.

"She has to find a balance between royal tradition, heritage and more proletariat customs, such as the ‘suburban’ habit of making young boys wear trousers."

"I bet her brother James wore shorts as a boy and Sophie Wessex has dressed her son in a similar fashion."

William said the dress code harks back to historic traditions that state"shorts are for little boys, trousers are for men".

It is likely that George will start wearing trousers at around "seven or eight years old".

Heat has also reported that Meghan is said to want to "help normalise" breastfeeding by doing so in public and is keen for Harry, 34, to be seen carrying their baby.

In general, the former Suits actress's birthing plan is "unlike anything the Royal Family has ever seen".

The magazine claims that she wants a home birth in a "pool set up in a relaxing environment".

This is very different from the way Kate welcomed her three children, who were all born in the Lindo Wing of St Mary's Hospital, London.

Kate, 36, was following in Princess Diana's footsteps, who had both Harry and Prince William at the unit.

Kensington Palace was contacted but declined to comment.

She's also got bald spots on the left side because of the chemical toxic straighteners, aka Brazilian/Keratin which will wreck your scalp, possibly permanently and cause baldness.

There's another bald spot I've seen on the right hand side behind her ear, and then there's bald spots on top of her head.

R404, acatually, straighteners today do not contain formaldehyde, including Brazilian/Keratin.

People are thinking that its a slight that MM and Harry are moving to Frogmore Cottage, but William and Kate also moved to a cottage in Wales when they were newly married. That cottage too wasnt very fancy. How do you explain that?

Also, I agree with the people who say that marrying into the royal family is a job. Thats why many of Harry's previous gfs didnt marry him, they did not want to live that kind of a life.

I mean sure, you get cool jewellery and a lavish lifestyle, but every single action/look of yours is criticised to death. You forego any life/career of your own and have to uphold a lot of archaic protocol and rules. Plus this entire family is racist and evil. MM knew what she was getting into and good luck to her. I mean, she was a c-list actress before and is now one of the most famous women in the world. People who never knew she existed, know her name now. Probably she is happy with that.

[quote]r353 Of course she could leave ... She'd have one problem with the kid/s: they technically are in custody of the monarch, so she'd have to stay in the UK is she wants to continue raising them.

If it came to it, that would be challenged in court and blasted out of the water...and before a decree was even reached the Royals would release the captive kids simply out of embarrasment - especially as said would be so far down the line of succession.

r413 Kate and William lived in the cottage in Wales (actually quite a spacious house, not small at all see photos of it) because he was stationed there with the RAF during that time. They were both actually quite happy there by all accounts.

They later moved full time to their country retreat at Anmer Hall, eschewing KP in London because they craved privacy for their family, and both love the country life. They by all accounts had to be dragged back to London to live in KP as their home base because of the Queen's advancing age and the growing call for both W & K to 'step up' and take on their roles and royal responsibilities. If they had their way, they'd go back to living at Anmer full time and keep KP as a workday layover spot. No such luck.

Haz & Megs have, oddly, almost the opposite problem. They have the very small Nott Cott at KP, only because it was Harry's bachelor pad. There seemed to be the understanding that after they wed and had children, they too would move up to a larger space at KP and take on senior royal work, alongside W &K. Meghan by all accounts is a city girl, raised in the heart of LA, schooled in Chicago and working in Toronto. They both like their weekend country retreat to the Cotswolds and all, but London was where it was at.

The current surprise is they are now basing themselves full time out in the country/suburbia, and leaving London completely, whether by choice or forced direction who knows. They are going to the life that W & K would love to have, while W & K have the digs that Meghan would probably covet. It's like no one wins here.

r418 Diana lived across the way at Apt 8/9 at KP, not 1A. 1A was Princess Margaret's spot for many years, then converted to office space after her death, and re-converted to a family space for W & K.

The reason Will and Kate were in a cottage the first years of their marriage was Will was active duty in the Royal Air Force and was on assignment as an air ambulance pilot in Wales. The Anglesey Cottage was like set up like an American farmhouse and the Cambridges felt perfectly content there. Will had to be persuaded by the Queen herself to leave that behind and assume a more prominent role in the BRF. HM gave them Anmer Hall (a large manor house) in her Sandringham estate as their country abode on top of Princess Margaret's old home, Apt 1A, which included massive upgrades to the apartment. It is said William actually wanted Diana's old place in Kensington Palace but the Firm wanted William in the grandest spot because he is afterall an heir apparent. Hierarchy is everything. Plus, I would imagine they wanted to put Diana in the past in anticipation of Charles' eventual accession.

R424 Harry loves to talk about how he'd like to be normal, but he just wants the perks, the status and the entitlements without the responsibility or accountability. He wants to be a rich fuckboy who answers to nobody. That's basically who he is, anyway, covered up by PR. Harry could have declined the Duke title but he snapped it right up. He could have easily pulled an Anne or an Edward instead. He accepted that embarrassing major title from his grandmother after quitting the military rather than taking the written testing that would have made him a real one. Threw away years of what his family expected would keep him busy until 40. So Invictus games was invented to suit his military persona. And he's pissing that away too. But call him Duke! He doesn't say no to that. He'll want HRH's and prince or princess for his spawn, too.

We must remember that even if she has a degree - and all we know is she was listed as a candidate - it is in communications. Not the international studies and theatre that she claimed.

"“Thomas is praying Meghan will give him one last chance this holiday season,” an insider recently revealed. “He’s clinging to the fact that Christmas was such a special time for them growing up, and hoping against hope that her heart will soften and she’ll at least pick up the phone and patch things up.”

According to Radar Online, Markle stopped talking to her dad shortly after her wedding when he made a series of embarrassing comments about the royal family during multiple paid interviews. Thomas also damaged his relationship with Meghan when he allegedly lied about his health after a staged photo scandal led to him to opt out of his daughter’s wedding.

Thomas has apologized repeatedly for what he did and says that he needs his daughter in his life. However, the insider says that Thomas is “growing impatient” with Meghan, and will start talking again soon if he doesn’t get any encouragement from his royal offspring.

The source added that when Samantha Markle (Meghan’s half-sister) starts to ramble, it means that Thomas isn’t far behind.

Royal biographer Robert Johnson traveled with Harry and Meghan on their recent royal tour down under. And, he revealed that when he asked the newlyweds if they had told Thomas about their pregnancy, they replied, “No comment.”"

I understand, MM is not responsible for her Sugars, her superfans, but if my sister was disabled, I would have helped her out, She could have helped her out when she was on Suits. Same for her "beloved" father that even in 2016, she talked about how much she LOVED her Daddy.

R413 - Kate and William moved to that cottage in Anglesey because it was near William's job as a rescue pilot. They weren't shunted off there by the BRF because the BRF wasn't willing to give them a London place OR a grand country place as they started having children.

The minute they got the place fit for front rank royals, and their family started to grow, Kate and William were into 22 rooms in a historic palace in the heart of London.

The cottage in Anglesey was near to William's job - it wasn't designated as their "home base" for the foreseeable future. Frogmore Cottage, which isn't grand, is rather run down, and has half the bedrooms Anmer Hall has (and whose renovations the Queen herself paid for, having the chef's kitchen redone to Kate's specifications), is the Sussex's home base from now till the end of the chapter.

It's a boot out of London, not a charming way station for a young couple whilst the hubby does his manly duty as a rescue helicopter pilot for awhile.

If you can't see the difference, you're blind. It's quite clear who the favoured couple is here, and if they aren't in better graces, it is entirely their own fault.

R458 - Meghan ghosted her father the minute she started dating Harry. She introduced Harry to her mother, but not her father, In all the time they dated, Meghan kept Harry far away from her father. For one thing, her father is fat, slovenly, and rather sad, and probably has a few personality problems, he is most assuredly NOT on-brand and she began to put distance between them as soon as she met Harry. For another, he lacks inhibition controls, and knows far more about Meghan than she is comfortable with. She could rely on her Mum to maintain discreet silence, but not her Dad. So she dumped him.

I'm sure she told Harry some weepy story about her abusive drug addled father - she left out the bits about he spoiled her, took her along with him to his job as television lighting director, and put her through school.

Kate Middleton wants everyone to know Meghan Markle isn’t the only Royal with impeccable style … because Kate’s doing everything she can to keep up with Meghan’s public image. Our Royal sources say Kate is attending more events than she used to, and she’s paying much more attention to her looks … we’re talking wardrobe, hair, jewelry, make-up, the whole nine yards. Basically, we’re told Kate wants to be more visible now that Meghan is commanding the spotlight.

As you can see, Kate has totally switched up her look … combining Princess Diana’s favorite tiara with a fancy necklace and a new gown by Alexander McQueen. This ensemble for a recent state banquet is quite different from the looks we’d gotten used to seeing Kate wear. When she attended Prince Charles’ 70th birthday party on Nov. 14, Kate wore her hair up … showing off bare shoulder under very glitzy earrings. Again, a style we hadn’t seen much. For what it’s worth, Meghan also wore her hair up at that event. Kate’s been busting out some outfits from way back in the day — she’s no fool and knows that gets more coverage. Usually, she recycles a year-old jacket or two, not a dress she wore 6 years ago — a clear sign she’s trying something new.

It’s interesting … Kate’s image focus comes amid reports of tension between her and Meghan, and between William and Harry. We’ve reached out to Kensington Palace for comment, but so far no word back.

The new TMZ article is pobably because of MM. Kate's "style" has always been the same & she's worn her hair up a lot. Kate is also naturally beautiful, with her real hair, as opposed to MM. Finally, future Queen Kate waited 10 years to marry the future King. It wasn't a whirlwind romance where 2 people did not know each other well. They knew each other very well

So, then. I sorta see Meghan like so: You got a new job at a place you thought you knew a lot about. Over a period of time looking in from the outside, you took mental notes on what you thought would be good changes. OOOOOO - you're such an innovator. You're in like Flynn. You got the gig. Bear in mind that you already knew who things were done and to be done, but again, YOU think that you're going to go in and shake things up! You ignore policy and procedure and elect to do your own thing because you just KNOW that both the public and those employees already there for ages are going to come to your side and say "Good golly, Miss Molly - how did we EVER survive this far without YOU!" Ah, but you misjudged everyone and everything to do with your new position. You EVEN misjudged your importance in the whole operation because to be quite honest, all the greatness that you anticipated was only coming from your own mind and imagination. And now, you're being forced to work with those who don't care to work with you any longer because you just couldn't be glad for the gig in the first place. You came in behaving like a new branch manager when you were only hired as the girl at the drive-thru window.

by Anonymousreply 52911/29/2018

R522, I'm not a "Meghan hater." Rather, I'm just one of the rare posters here who never committed to one side or the other. In fact, I have posted both positive and negative ramblings re the Diva Duchess (my own original moniker first used the other day). Truth and fact, man - that's the ticket. It's been interesting and fun trying to figure it all out, but alas, I've drawn my conclusion. Being absolutely, authentically biracial myself, I cannot be accused of racism in this case.

She's a grifter. No doubt about it. She married the man's position and status - his celebrity. Had he not been who he is, then I am highly inclined to believe that she would not have given him a second glance. Again, I'll make note of something he said during the engagement interview. He said "I'm in love with this girl, and I THINK she loves me." Ooops! He should have KNOWN that she loves him - for HIM, mind you. That utterance will perhaps turn out to be notorious as was his own father's statement "Whatever love means."

Now, it takes a player to know a player. No. She didn't fool anybody. They had her number from jump. It bears saying that she married into a family of grifters. MAJOR, MAJOR grifters of an international scale. This family, and the nation/government it represents, is responsible for the invasion and colonization of lands foreign to them thereby oppressing the native peoples while profiting from their natural resources. They were heavily into Imperialism and Empire building for centuries, much like the United States today. Quoting Chris Rock here - "It is ONLY the white man who is able to glorify the profits gained from the infliction of pain."

I don't fault her for what she's done. I do, however, feel sorry for her because I KNOW that she only entertained thoughts of self-aggrandizement during the months leading up to the nuptials. She didn't take the necessary weeks/months to think about all the negative aspects of marrying into the BRF. And now, she's getting the inevitable rude awakening. Poor Harry. Based upon her prior experience, I absolutely DO believe that it's entirely her nature to wake up one day and say to herself "This just isn't working for me anymore," and getting the fuck outa Dodge. Those folks probably have every phone line she uses tapped. Internet connection tapped. Nott Cott, itself, tapped. I don't doubt it for a minute. They know every move she makes and every word she speaks/types/otherwise communicates. If she knows what's best for her, then she had better chill. No matter the lofty ideas she had for herself, the fact of the matter is that she signed up to be her husband's wife and a member of his family. THAT'S IT! That's ALL they want from her. She should have known better.

Best of luck to her, seriously. And best of luck to him as well. I hope things simmer and relax down to where they're supposed to be for her benefit, his, and that of his family. She will make a fatal mistake when she begins lamenting over what she gave up to gain this position.

R531, getting there seems to have been the easy part. STAYING there is another matter. They'll never turn her away unless history repeats itself, and scandalized, QEII or Charles demand their divorce. If she ever decides to leave of her own accord, then they will destroy her utterly on her way out. Her going up against that family would be some major David vs Goliath shit! It would take an act of God for her to come out unscathed. Master media manipulators, who do you think Diana learned it from? All we ever hear about are the courtiers and what they do to ensure the survival of the Monarchy. We know nothing about the other faction - those "men in black" who do the real dirty work when it's warranted. The BRF probably has no idea who they are, but they know that they're there when needed. There IS a dark side at work here. All we see as spectators is surface shit - shit the WANT us to see.

Re Thomas Markle and Doria

Meghan is biracial. This is how she defines herself.

White father Thomas.

POC mother Doria.

This is the picture.

But...

What if it was Thomas who was the Parent of Color? The loving father who impoverished himself, spent a fortune on her schooling, supported her after schooling, the man she glowingly described on her media profile. The hard working successful former lighting director. The parent with whom she lived during her formative years. The parent who her teachers described as a very involved parent. Who took her to his job and explained all the details. The man who sent her her favorite soup when she was away at a very expensive university that he paid for. The man now who is down on his luck, in bad health and low on funds (having previously been tapped out by his youngest child), living in a questionable location. The man now ghosted and ignored by his much loved daughter.

Suppose Thomas Markle was the Parent of Color?

And suppose Doria was the white parent. The slim, attractive California yoga instructor. The woman, wearing beautiful, well fitting clothes, escorted to her daughter's wedding by no less than the Prince of Wales. The woman who was not the parent who tended and was much involved at her daughter's school. The woman who owns her own home, left to her by her father. The woman who apparently contributed nothing financially to the very expensive education of her daughter, her only child, but who has now been embraced and included by said daughter at a Royal Wedding.

Suppose Doria was the White Parent?

Everything else is the same. Meghan looks the same, leaks the same, behaves the same. Same groom, same wedding, everything the same.

Ghosted, rejected, ignored father. Embraced mother.

Would people view Meghan's actions in the same way?

Would her ghosting of her father be accepted and even, by some, thought justified.

Would Doria be cheered and feted?

Would Meghan's behavior be viewed in exactly the same way by her fans? By the media? By her husband?

I wonder.

R507- Jesus, I do believe you really believe what you posted. She was given that tiara on loan from HM and wore it before Meghan Markle appeared on the scene. She wore asymmetrical necklines before MM arrived, and she's stuck to her style. She's doing more events because the chess pieces are moving behind the scenes, and they all have to prepare for the next step up. With their home base now (on orders) in London and Kate's childbearing realistically over, the plan was always to have K&W step up about now.

She recycling clothes like mad to show how "thrifty" she is compared to the luxury loving spendthrift Harry brought in. How does that equal "switched up her look"?

Meghan Markle has nothing to do with it. If anything, her ridiculous clothes, mistakes, and increasingly bad PR have made Kate look better and upped her public value.

If you look at her resume, Suits is pretty much her one break in Hollywood, because of the contacts of her then husband. The rest of her work history is a sparse series supporting guest roles and a commercial or two. Cory Vitiello is how she gained entree into Toronto society. He is a Canadian celebrity chef who mixed with the likes of the Trudeaus and Mulroneys. You know, like in her ex-bff Jessica Mulroney? Her life is a study of whom she has used and discarded.

About Thomas Markle and Doria...

Meghan describes herself as biracial - one white parent and one parent of color.

So, we have her white father, who tended her during her formative years when she lived with him, who was known per her teachers as an involved and caring parent, who paid large sums of money to get her the best education through all her years of schooling, brought her to his work when he was a very successful lighting director in Hollywood, sent her her favorite soup while she was away at the very expensive university and paid her bills when she was trying to start her career after her schooling. That father is now in ill health, living in a questionable place, and very low on funds and said daughter has ghosted him and has nothing to do with him and even before her wedding, she chose not to introduce him to her intended groom.

We also have Doria, a California yoga teacher, a woman of color, slim, attractive, who owns her own home left to her by her deceased father. By everything we know, she was not the financial source in any way of the costs of Meghan's high price education. Doria is now the praised mother, appearing in beautiful, well fitting clothes while attending her daughter's royal wedding. She was escorted during that event by the Prince of Wales.

But, suppose, just suppose that in the scenario, it had been Thomas Markle, the involved, finanancially supporting and now ghosted father, who was the person of color.

And suppose the California yoga teacher mother Doria was white.

Would Meghan's behavior to her parents, both father and mother, be viewed in the same way?

Would those who sing her praises still sing her praises?

Would excuses still be made for ghosting her father?

Other than such eventualities, or a major tragedy that wipes out William and his entire family, which we all know are unlikely, Harry and Meghan and their offspring and Andrew and Bea have about as much chance of ascending the throne as I have.

I wonder how Pa Markle would have fared with his little Buckaroo if he'd kept his mouth shut and avoided the tabloids in the build up to the wedding. Would she have had him walk her down the aisle or would she be too embarrassed by his weight and disheveled appearance to do so? The BRF could have done some clean up for him. After all, the dissolute Johnny Spencer walked Diana down the aisle and he was in even worse shape than Pa Markle, overweight and somewhat shabby looking after a recent illness. He was in such a bad way that Diana had to prop him up at one point as the were approaching the altar at St. Paul's. It would probably have been an even bigger dilemma for Meghan if her father had behaved appropriately. Did she really want him there at all?

Now that she is older, she is completely aware that getting the interview IS the most important thing. She realizes how naive and thoughtless she was to think she got there mainly on her own.

Guaran-damn-tee Suits wouldn't have looked twice at Nutmeg if she hadn't had Trevor promoting her. She used Trevor to open doors for her and then slammed it shut on him. She was moderately successful in her role maybe, but was unable on her own to parlay any of it in those long 7 years into higher profile parts or movies. (Aw shit, may have dumped Trevor prematurely?) So much for being perfectly cast in a starring role on a, what did you call it R572? A "very good' and "witty" show.

[quote]r575 I will agree with you that she got that job on her own but she would have never been in the room if not for her husband.

This is a bit of a laugh when you compare it to her husband being literally born into royalty.

She worked harder to get any achievements she had than Prince Harry did to get his, no?

The BRF do not trust her yet. They couldn't possibly trust her because they don't really know her. She was thrust upon them by Harry. They don't say anything about it, of course, but the fact that she declined to invite her own family to her wedding must have raised eyebrows, I'm sure. Having people like Oprah and George Clooney at the wedding without the benefit of prior friendship or relationship with them must have amused them. The family, and the Queen especially, is just not impressed with celebrity. In fact, it was policy for ages to distance themselves from celebrities for concern of ever being mistaken for being one. I can just hear the Queen and Phil musing to themselves "Why the hell are these people here?"

It's really quite simple about what is required of her. They want authenticity. The Queen is said to have always possessed a talent for snuffing out insincerity in other people. I'm afraid that it's clearly evident that she is treating her entree into the family as if it were a starring role. She needs to lose the red carpet sashay which was blatantly obvious during her first public appearance as Duchess, which I believe was Charles' official birthday in the garden at BP. Cradling her stomach while she's baring showing? Ridiculous. And that's the problem. She always seems to be drawing attention to herself with a specific intent in mind. And now "they" are very diligently beginning to check her by planting stories concerning her bad behavior, or what they want to public to think of as bad behavior. That recent poll concerning popularity among the Royals with Harry first and she being last, or sixth? I wouldn't be surprised to learn that it came at the behest of BP. That bit was the FIRST bit of negative publicity because it showed a lack of unison between them. It was a reality check stating "They're still wild about Harry. You? Not so much." These are master spin doctors, and they can effect either a positive or a negative public opinion with ease. Get it together, girl! You're a fucking guppy in a tank full of sharks!

@rachelreddd - note the 3 d's at the end of her handle, is MM's neice. She's also screaming to the heavens that everyone in the BRF is racist & out to get MM.. She's also screaming that people that don't like MM are racists.

[quote]r577 Now that she is older, Fonda is completely aware that getting the interview IS the most important thing.

[quote]Without Sparkle's husband's helping her to get seen for the Suits role, someone else would have played that role quite nicely.

Well, of course. There isn't a role written that any number of performers could play "quite nicely". There's never a shortage on talent, rather, too few projects to go around.

Jane Fonda and MM were both beautiful young women. That is what their employers wanted. They were also both good at their jobs...Fonda obviously to a greater degree than MM. If Jane Fonda's last name or Meghan Markle's husband made them visible for jobs, well, that's really the way any industry works.

Two other points: 1.) Meghan Markle's husband was not a big deal producer who's associated with any real hits. He's no Stephen Spielberg, or even David Milch. 2.) Producers are usually more in competition with each other, or have bad blood between them, than they're buddy-buddy. When they meet each other, their eyes more often narrow rather than light up. They all have their own little spheres and projects and are very protective of them. So it's not like one producer calls another and demands whatever they want.

[quote]I wonder how Pa Markle would have fared with his little Buckaroo if he'd kept his mouth shut and avoided the tabloids in the build up to the wedding. Would she have had him walk her down the aisle or would she be too embarrassed by his weight and disheveled appearance to do so? The BRF could have done some clean up for him. After all, the dissolute Johnny Spencer walked Diana down the aisle and he was in even worse shape than Pa Markle, overweight and somewhat shabby looking after a recent illness. He was in such a bad way that Diana had to prop him up at one point as the were approaching the altar at St. Paul's. It would probably have been an even bigger dilemma for Meghan if her father had behaved appropriately. Did she really want him there at all?

The BRF were very familiar with Earl Spencer. Plus his little cottage was kind of impressive.

The Spencers' art work alone was impressive, r570. Nice little cottage in the countryside.

Trevor Engelson markets himself as a film director, producer and talent agent. Interpret that as jack of all trades if you will which probably gives him some flexibility to network within the industry. And no one is submitting him in the power vein of a Spielberg or David Milch because let's face it, Suits sure as hell is no Schindler's List or in Milch's case True Detective. But Trevor was enough of a player to carry some weight for a basic cable tv show featuring a c-list cast.

R570

The answer to your question is a resounding "NO".

She never even introduced her father to Harry.

And Harry, dim bulb that he is, didn't insist on meeting her father.

She never had any intention of having her father at the wedding.

In fact, when the engagement was announced, the story was that she wanted HER MOTHER to walk her down the aisle.

All those stories about her father in the few days before the wedding were just PR bullshit to cover for the fact that she had made no plans to have her father there. There had been no people from the RF sent to help her Dad. Nothing. Nada. Invisible. GHOSTED.

R568 - er, in Britain the term "spunky" means something else.

She's a hard, savvy, driven girl. But as to bright: no one bright makes the missteps Sparkle has since getting what she thinks she wanted. She has tunnel vision.

by Anonymousreply 59311/29/2018

R588 - Johnny Spencer is from one of the oldest landed aristo families in England, whose ties to the BRF go back longer than Meghan Markle's knowledge of history does. Diana was BORN on the Sandringham estate, and grew up near the BRF. Her grandmother was a Lady of the Bedchamber to the Queen Mother. He was in bad shape not from a "recent illness" but a stroke that nearly killed him.

Thomas Markle, Sr. was probably in reasonably better shape physiclly - but in every other respect, your post is a joke. Johnny Spencer was part of the Establishment - he won custody of his three children with Diana's mother.

Johnny Spencer was nothing but Plus Plus - Thomas Markle isn't on the same planet.

R587 - You're comparing the looks of a gorgeous young Jane Fonda to Meghan Markle??!! With her tall slim figure - did you ever get a look at Henry's granddaughter, Bridget, in her salad days?

Son, you either need glasses or a cinema course. Meghan Markle was a reasonably pretty girl who looked like a million other vaguely Latina looking girls in Los Angeles. Jane Fonda was gorgeous, with a more than passing resemblance to her stunningly handsome father, and American acting icon.

Jesus, get real. And as to that "different degrees" of talent? Christ, have you seen "Klute" recently?

Meghan was barely functional as an actress and unremarkable looking even young. She and Jane Fonda may as well be from different species.

I was only comparing physical appearances and state of health, R594. I had only suggested that if Markle wanted him there, there could have been a clean up attempt.

And since when does a stroke not cause illness?

I have to say, I was really empressed with the cast on that show. Though they may not have been A-list stars, ALL of them were good! My favorites were Gina Torres (beautiful badass) and Rick Hoffman (loser badass). But EVERYONE was good.

Meghan Markle's character didn't have as much range because she was basically playing straightman, and "the girlfriend" at that, but she was lovely and more than qualified.
