Queen Elizabeth may never return to her royal duties

At 94, it's too risky to let her Royal Highness return to public life. She will remain walled in the castle for the rest of her life.

Welfare Queen.

by G-d save the Queen. ~Sid Viciousreply 905/10/2020

She's 94 for fuck's sake. On the one hand, it hardly seems like some big tragedy if she retires from all but video appearances. And on the other hand, something's gotta take her out sometime, so if she wants keep appearing in the flesh, why not let her take her chances?

Liz will spend the rest of her days making prank phone calls to Harry & Meg, asking if they have Prince Albert in a can.

That’s the last time I ever allow a Yankee inside these walls!

by G-d save the Queen. ~Sid Viciousreply 1205/10/2020

If this is true, Harry and Meg might genuinely never see the Queen ever again in person. If they come to the UK and want to see her they would likely have to quarantine for 2 -4 weeks at least before they would be allowed to visit her. I can't see Meghan being willing to do that, especially because she seems not to want to bring Archie back to the UK at all, much less for weeks at a time during which they'd be cooped up in a house on quarantine. Maybe Harry would be willing to do that on his own, but that's a far longer visit than he seems up for.

by G-d save the Queen. ~Sid Viciousreply 1305/10/2020

The Queen is not Her Royal Highness, she's Her Majesty. She continues to perform ALL her royal duties while quarantined, and she'll return to Buckingham Palace when London re-opens and there's a reliable test for antibodies.

There's no such thing as a Queen, God doesn't recognize her as such a thing. Ole Elizabeth is nothing more then a socialite. She no different then Paris Hilton and Kim Kardashian, they are all over privileged girls who grew up to be socialites, nothing more.

by G-d save the Queen. ~Sid Viciousreply 2105/11/2020

Surely there is some plague protection wear from the royal collection that she could wear. They could also put her in one of those medical sealed bubbles so that she could travel around for her subjects to see her and have hope.

by G-d save the Queen. ~Sid Viciousreply 2205/11/2020

A socialite is not going to give anyone hope which is what Elizabeth is. Now if she gives the people some money that might help, but her being seen is not enough. She's just a socialite pretending to be a Queen.

She's really just a celebrity just like Paris Hilton and Kim Kardashian. She is a socialite, nothing more. Just a socialite.

Yes R32. She still drives, had an active social life and was involved in her church, etc. All her friends are shut-ins now. She hasn't seen anyone in person but me and my sister for more than two months.

It must be hard on her. I was kind of hoping she's the type of elderly person who doesn't go far from home. By that age (long before Corona) my parents were happy campers with medical appointments, grocery shopping and TV.

by G-d save the Queen. ~Sid Viciousreply 3705/11/2020

Unsurprisingly the queen has been stepping back anyway, with Charles substituting at investitures, the State opening of Parliament etc - this would just be slightly increasing the process.

The "Queen Elizabeth is nothing more than a socialite" troll could never correctly answer a question as simple as "Who is Britain's Head of State?"

R13, if they cared about seeing Harry’s gran in person, they would have gone to see her more when they were in England. I’m pretty sure they consider her just a stuffy old nag and she’s taking too long to die. They need that inheritance money like, yesterday.

by G-d save the Queen. ~Sid Viciousreply 4005/11/2020

I'm sure that Meghan will not be crying into her organic muesli over never seeing the Queen again, r40, and does indeed regard her as a "Stuffy old nag who needs to die so we can inherit."

But Harry was genuinely close to her. She stepped in after Diana's death and partially raised both of the brothers, and through their teens had them come to spend summers with her at Balmoral. William and Harry have probably spent more time with her than her own children did. One of her biographers said that she's closer to them than she even was to her own children, owing to the tragic circumstances and to the fact that by the nineties, much of the traditional stuffiness which had caused distance between parents and children had been relatively abandoned by the Windsors.

If Harry never sees her again, I can't imagine he'd be fine with that. She's been an important rock in his life.

There are homeless people all over London (and Paris, and Rome) now because of the migrant crisis, r44. When I was growing up there were no homeless people anywhere in London.

It was kind of Britain to let them in at all: where they come from they'd have been killed. The huge numbers of people who never paid into the system arriving and taking out of the system are breaking the NHS, and the housing and benefits system, but go ahead, criticise away. And make sure you make the Queen responsible for it all.

by G-d save the Queen. ~Sid Viciousreply 4805/11/2020

by G-d save the Queen. ~Sid Viciousreply 4905/11/2020

That isn't a castle idiot at r44 and while it's sad that those people are homeless, the reason for that isn't the Queen or even poverty but those people's own decision to enter the UK, usually illegally.

If Harry never sees the Queen again r41 then that's entirely his own fault.

R50, who gives a shit if it’s a palace or a castle (yes I know the difference but in this case, it’s meaningless); also, you don’t know if these people are here legally or illegally. Finally, no compassion for the elderly women sleeping in the street? Got it. I know exactly the kind of person you are.

by G-d save the Queen. ~Sid Viciousreply 5205/11/2020

R48 yes, blame the Queen. The bitch hoarding 100 billion in wealth while human beings sleep like dogs in the street. It's cruel antihuman elitism, simple.

Queen Elizabeth will return to -very visible- public duty at Buckingham Palace the moment her doctors give her the green light.

She considers it her duty, and she’s a tough broad. Those Windsor women are strong as an ox.

by G-d save the Queen. ~Sid Viciousreply 5405/11/2020

R50, you deliberately said castle to make it sound more like it's cut off from society and is a fortress to keep the people out.

The article you link to says they're migrants. From the photos, I'd say they're Roma (i.e. gypsies) and hence are generally messy anyway.

No moron at r53, the Queen isn't to blame for other people's situations.

by G-d save the Queen. ~Sid Viciousreply 5505/11/2020

R48 a fraction of the money the parasite queen has taken from the treasury to enhance her personal wealth would end the homeless and revitalize the National Health, but the cunt clearly does not give a fuck.

She is a Monarch and Constitutional Head and has kept her shit together longer than we have been alive. Still better than the plutocracy the US has now become.

Queen? I didn't vote for her.

And as for any historical claim or lineage from an earlier monarch, listen, strange women lying in ponds distributing swords is no basis for a system of government. Supreme executive power derives from a mandate from the masses, not from some farcical aquatic ceremony. You can't expect to wield supreme executive power just 'cause some watery tart threw a sword at your ancestor. If I went around sayin' I was an emperor just because some moistened bink had lobbed a scimitar at me they'd put me away!

She is still a socialite and nothing more. British have lost their minds. This woman is not a prime minister or president, she needs to be removed immediately for playing games in the fucking government and stealing money from the poor. And she eats babies too. This woman is dangerous and she is still a socialite, so why is she the head of state for the UK? I don't like this shit at all. She must be removed at once.

It doesn't seem unreasonable, though if she needs to stay away from the public, so does Charles as he's high risk too, which leaves Kate & Wills. Since we'll be dealing with this for awhile, it will be interesting to see how the royals keep up some sort of public profile when their whole shtick involves crowds, parades, shaking hands, etc. - shit they won't be doing anytime soon. Plus, the UK is bound to experience an economic downturn, making the commoner even more grumpier about paying for royals.

If HM withdraws into confinement, it sets up an odd form of Regency where Charles would be taking up the yoke of the sovereign without any of the authority.

The queen may self-isolate, but she isn't giving up the throne. She's of the generation that lived through the abdication of King Edward VIII, later Prince Edward, Duke of Windsor. The BRF almost lost everything, Elizabeth will not abdicate or give up her role even if she gives up some duties. And if there is a vaccine, Lilibet will be back out among the public even if on a limited basis.

And next year, Liz is removing the Harkles "HRH" styles. Not only saying they can't use the styles, but stripping HRH away from them so they don't have them any longer..

I used to think the British monarchy was an anachronistic pile of shit, until I lived in the UK for a year. There are clear advantages to having the roles of head of government and head of state being held by two different people and having them pass to a successor under two different systems.

The advantages are not so clear when you are immersed your entire life in that system. And it is not something I ever could have understood until I left my own home in the US and experienced a new way of handling things. America suffers greatly under a man like Donald Trump or George W. Bush because these two very different roles are invested in one office holder.

I lived in the UK in 1988 and 1989. And not for a moment since that time have I thought the office of the President was a good idea. Think twice, Brits, before you overthrow that Saxe-Coburg-Gotha crowd and hand it all, everything, over to the likes of BoJo.

by G-d save the Queen. ~Sid Viciousreply 17805/12/2020

You do realize, R178, that the role of the Queen is strictly ceremonial and that she is a figurehead with no political power, right? And that the PM is like the president in that they are elected officials who come and go, hence the point of a democracy?

by G-d save the Queen. ~Sid Viciousreply 17905/12/2020

R178 She is still a parasite they can elect a head of state.

by G-d save the Queen. ~Sid Viciousreply 18005/12/2020

I understand all that better than you do, R179. Of course the Queen has no official political power, if the political power has been vested in the Parliament. That is patently obvious. A big "duh."

But if you think the Queen has no political power, you are quite naive. You are also incorrect when you say the role of the Queen, an by extension the monarchy, is strictly ceremonial. It isn't. After the Clapham Junction train crashes, Margaret Thatcher tried to usurp the traditional role of the royal family by visiting the injured in hospital. She got a fire storm of push back from all corners. Speaking in times of crisis is not "strictly ceremonial," nor is offering comfort. They are real functions the monarchy performs. The patron roles taken by various members of the royal family with British charities and cultural institutions are also not "strictly ceremonial." They offer continuity and enrichment to the culture.

I invite you to the US, R179, to spend some time living with Donald Trump. Come see what its like to have that fat bastard presume to show up as a head of state and represent all that is good about the U.S.

Elizabeth & Co. probably need to be scaled down a bit. They live large quite large, when compared to other European monarchs. But I suspect that if Charles tries it to do it, the people of the UK will feel the diminishment in ways that will surprise.

And Elizabeth is still a socialite. I bet she and Kim Kardashian secretly talk on the phone all the time. Even socialite Zsa Zsa Gabor said the Elizabeth was at a dinner party at her Bel Air home back in the day, so that's just another peice of the puzzle proving my point that she's a socialite.

R181, you're quite presumptuous. First, I live in the U.S. and I know what it's like. So even though you'd like to think you know better than I on both the role of the Queen (because you lived in the UK a whole year) and what Trump is doing to the U.S., you're wrong on both counts. Of course, the Queen's role is ceremonial. Whatever she and the BRF offer in terms of comfort, official speeches, continuity, or enrichment to the culture, that is strictly through being figureheads.

Of course the Queen is capable of influencing opinion by her actions and words, and the BRF PR machine, but ultimately it is not in actual political power she has any sway. I'm glad you know this; a lot of people don't seem to, so it's not "Duh" when there are so many idiots on this thread alone. It is the court of public opinion she and the BRF deal in, with obviously mixed results though the many decades they've managed to keep the firm going.

Skype is 'interfacing' with another person, r246, not 'seeing' another person in the human sense.

It was a stupid move, from the golddigger Markle's point of view. Archie is the money trail and she unwittingly cut him off from one of his greatest potential benefactors.

Meghan never meant to cut Archie off, of course. All she was trying to do was to hold out 'seeing Archie' as a leveraging tool.

Harry will divorce Meghan, and she will clean him out financially.

Please correct and cite r291.

My information is: On 21 August 1996 letters patent changed titles of divorced wives of British princes, depriving their former wives of the style of Royal Highness. For this reason Her Royal Highness The Princess of Wales after divorce became Diana, Princess of Wales. The same happened to Her Royal Highness The Duchess of York who became Sarah, Duchess of York.

That's not quite right. When Charles and Diana divorced, the Queen was going to style Diana as an HRH because, after all, she was the mother of a future king. However, Diana demanded the title of Princess of Wales, so Liz said, "Fuck you, that's your title and you won't be HRH." So Diana lost the HRH.

R293. So, Diana was going to be what? HRH of What? If the queen was going to give her HRH, then what was she going to be HRH of? If Diana was demanding she be Princess of Wales, well, she got that title. That was not in dispute. That was settled. As I understood it, the dispute was always not about the title Princess of Wales, but whether or not she would retain HRH. The queen was willing to let her keep HRH. It was Charles who was demanding that Diana not retain HRH. Charles won that battle, but Diana got him big-time financially.

Regardless of the fact that Philip would never have said anything like that - because titles are not a matter of Philip's or the Queen's personal choice, but about protocol and tradition, not something to be negotiated in a divorce settlement- there is no way in which Diana's aristocratic titles trumped a royal title, and certainly not the royal titles of the British royal family.

Philip was in fact a prince of Denmark, the oldest royal family in the world - although he'd had to give up his other royal titles on marriage. So, he wouldn't give a shit about someone claiming to have an old title or whining about having to give up theirs.

And their is a minor if negligible point to be taken. Philip had to forswear all his other royal titles to marry Elizabeth. He was only created a Prince again by Elizabeth in 1957.

Her title was older than his and since it was hers by right of birth, they couldn't have stripped her of that.

Can Her Majesty strip Aristocratic titles? Royal titles, obviously. I think that the heads of Aristocratic families can strip lesser members of their titles but can The Queen?

by G-d save the Queen. ~Sid Viciousreply 32905/14/2020

The Queen can have members of the aristocracy arrested on charges of treason, and have them attainted and upon their execution, seize their land and remove their titles.

by G-d save the Queen. ~Sid Viciousreply 33105/14/2020

The version that I heard was that Diana’s response to Philip suggesting that they would take away her title was: “But you can’t, Pa - I have one of my own”.

Which sounds slightly more plausible as there have been letters between them published where she refers to him as “Pa”.

The letters were published to show that they continued to have a friendly relationship up to the divorce.

Reading not so much this thread, but some the others. it appears that some posters seem to think that the British Aristocracy is some sort of subset of the Royal Royal Family. No, they are their own thing separate from the Monarchy. In the United Kingdom, some Aristocratic titles are indeed quite older than the those of the current Royal Family.

by G-d save the Queen. ~Sid Viciousreply 33305/14/2020

I always found it odd that back in the day -- way back in the day, I'm an eldergay -- there was much made of Charles as Heir being the first to marry a commoner. Yet she wasn't. She was a titled member of an Aristocratic family despite not being Royal.

Kate had to take the brunt of the contemporary "A Prince can't marry a commoner debate" years later. Much of the public discussion was brutal towards her. And yet she has turned out to be the best and most exemplary.

And since the Queen is the one who pretty much decides titles (along with the government and parliament), it is also entirely implausible that Diana would have said “But you can’t, Pa - I have one of my own”, as r332 suggests.

My point r327, was that Philip would not give a shit about anyone pontificating about how old their title was considering he was born a prince of the oldest royal family in the world. And, since he voluntarily gave up his own much more distinguished titles in order to marry, he would also not give a shit about anyone whining about having to give up their royal titles in order to divorice - and Diana supposedly made the comment about her "older" title as part of the negotiations for what her new title and status was going to be post-divorce, supposedly as leverage. Being "Lady Diana Spencer" doesn't mean anything and it's a complete joke to think that title could be used in any way as leverage against the royal family - even in an apocryphal story.

In any case, the title "monarch" is far older than the title "youngest daughter of an earl who will never inherit the family title" and the British royal family are descendants of the earliest kings of England, going back over a millennium, so their titles and lineage are much older than Diana's.

That apocryphal story about Diana supposedly saying something like that to Philip springs from the same kind of mind as the post at r356.

During the Charles and Diana divorce, the Queen's original plan was to style her ex-daughter-in-law as HRH Princess Diana. This would have been an HRH and title in her own right, which Diana could have kept if she ever remarried. The sting was that she would have had to give up the title Princess of Wales, as she was no longer married to the Prince of Wales and he might need that title for a future wife. Diana balked at this, as she was much attached to her brand as Princess of Wales. They were still negotiating when she prematurely leaked to the press that she would keep the Princess of Wales title. The Queen and her advisors, angry over Diana jumping the gun, let her keep Princess of Wales but stripped the HRH.

This old bag is the ultimate frau and the one that every frau worships.

by G-d save the Queen. ~Sid Viciousreply 42705/17/2020

R424 - As it happens, yes. When she and Philip were first married, apparently the fresh young Princess Elizabeth took to sex like a duck to water, and Philip was heard to complain at cocktail parties that he couldn't keep the young princess out of his bed. Finally, his father-in-law, King George VI, took Philip aside and told him to knock it off. This has appeared in just about every single worthwhile biography of her and Philip.

The people dissing her as a stuffy frau do so because they have absolutely no real knowledge of her and get their information from photos hanging on the walls of government offices.

First and foremost, HM is a countrywoman who bred horses and dogs, who was taught tracking and shooting as a young woman, and who spends every chance she can outside London and in the country - her private homes are in Norfolk and Scotland. Very few of such are squeamish about reproduction and sex.

The early obsession with horses should have told you something. Her daughter, Anne, seems to have followed the trajectory with unerring instinct, including the horse breeding bit.

A story is told of Anne once, dancing with a man at some reception or other. He was, of course, holding her at respectful distance. Anne apparently said in her brusque way, "Are you afraid of me?" "Why, no," her partner stammered. "Then stop holding me like a piece of china and let's dance properly," Anne replied.

They are much earthier and less hidebound than people suppose.

And, in fact, one of the problems between Charles and Diana is that she was a very modern urbanite, and Charles, like his parents and grandparents, was a countryman through and through. Diana hated the country. She hated Balmoral, she hated Sandringham, she hated Highgrove. Her idea of getting away from it all was a beach on the Riviera.

The Queen's trick, as Robert Lacey once pointed out, is to succeed in having to be IN the city but not OF the city.

The royal family wants to move on from the “soap opera” surrounding the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s departure from their official roles, according to senior palace sources.

Since their departure for a new life in Los Angeles without official duties, Harry and Meghan are said to have been looking forward to the publication of a book that claims to reveal their “true story”.

But when the tell-all biography charting the Sussexes’ decision to move to America is released this summer, the royal family will remain tight-lipped.

Finding Freedom: Harry and Meghan and the Making of a Modern Royal Family is understood to have been written with the Sussexes’ blessing. It is expected to give their version of events behind a reportedly strained relationship with the institution and a rumoured rift with the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.

A senior palace source said: “The rest of the royal family will not be telling their side of the story. They feel that in this new world, people are more interested in seeing the family support frontline workers than reading about their internal politics.

“It was a soap opera. Everyone knows the narrative that’s coming. The feeling is that drama and everything that comes with it has left. Let the rest of the royal family get on with it.”

Senior members of the royal family are understood to have been briefed about the book. Contrary to reports of “fears” over the “bombshell” biography, a royal source said: “It’s just not a hot topic of conversation in the family. They have had so many books written about them that have lobbed some hefty bombs over the sides. They’re used to it.”

Written by Omid Scobie, a former reporter for the American tabloid Us Weekly, and Carolyn Durand, a reporter for Elle magazine, the book will be published by HarperCollins on August 11.

A spokesman for the Sussexes said the couple were “relaxed” about the authors’ access to people “close to them” but denied they had actively assisted with the book.

“There has been no organising from our side in terms of who they have spoken to. It is not an official, authorised or endorsed book. The authors have not had interviews with the duke and duchess. We have asked to see a copy ahead of publication.”

Some previous royal biographies written with collaboration have not gone down well in royal circles. The Queen Mother said she was “deeply shocked” to discover that Diana, Princess of Wales had helped to “wash the dirty linen in public” by assisting Andrew Morton with his book, Diana: Her True Story, which detailed her struggles within the royal family and the breakdown of her marriage to the Prince of Wales.

The Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh were said to be dismayed by Prince Charles’s admission to Jonathan Dimbleby in his 1994 biography, that he had felt “emotionally estranged”from his parents for much of his life.

The biographer AN Wilson, who has written books on the Queen, Prince Albert and Queen Victoria, said last week: “In a way, there is no mystery left. Meghan will tell us nothing we could not have made up for ourselves.”

r422 : If you're starving for royal gossip, an interesting read is Kitty Kelley's little spill on the BRF. I say "little" - it is actually a massive book even in paperback but it is filled with delicious gossip (always sourced) such as QEII saying "whee!" when attempting to close doors aboard the storm-lashed Britannia yacht as she was exiting an evening with family and guests. But the best book is the Housekeeper's Diary which really dishes on Charles, Diana (Diana telling Charles to Fuck Off etc) and Charles lugging around a battered old teddy from his childhood that no one was allowed to touch. Prince Andrew and his "dirty" tissues that lay scattered on the floor around his bed that the maids had to pick up. It's endless....

Elizabeth was finished with her royal duties when she gave birth to her four children. That's all that matters is producing the next generation of royalty.

by G-d save the Queen. ~Sid Viciousreply 43605/17/2020

R436 that only applies to female spouses of sovereigns. So when you say Elizabeth, what you really should say is Phillip.

Anyway, I think they should slim down the monarchy to just the king and queen. All of the rest of the title should be removed. It’s 2020, and their one job, smiling and waving has become a health hazard.

I also remember, in the not so distant past, Prince William making jokes, like a Trump jr, about spreading Corona. Yeah, these people can fuck off.

by G-d save the Queen. ~Sid Viciousreply 43705/17/2020

r437, no it applies to both. As you said, their one job is smiling and waving. Everyone likes to pretend the Queen has a lot of power, but she really doesn't. It's all ceremonial. When the topic of Brexit came up, probably the most important issue of British 21st Century, everyone says, "Oh the Queen cannot comment because she is supposed to be above politics." So the head of State can't offer an opinion on Brexit?

by G-d save the Queen. ~Sid Viciousreply 43805/17/2020

R436, that's completely not true. Her progeny have had fuck all to do while she has been meeting weekly with prime ministers for nearly 70 years, has weathered all kinds of storms both in her fraught and fucked-up family, and with the country at large, and has been THE figurehead for her nation and represented it to every other nation in the world. What she's done has been about more than popping out heirs, especially since her entire conception of duty and obligation requires that she, for her very long life, fulfill what she sees as her role as queen. Her job was far from done when she pushed out Charles.

by G-d save the Queen. ~Sid Viciousreply 43905/17/2020

R438 - the monarch (and her family) is suppose to stay well away from politics or the appearance of taking sides in any political issue. She has to remain NEUTRAL because she represents ALL the people.

[quote]the monarch (and her family) is suppose to stay well away from politics or the appearance of taking sides in any political issue.

So let me see if I understand. She meets with the Prime Minister of the country to give her opinion on things like Brexit, but she won't comment about what she has told the PM to do concerning Brexit?

by G-d save the Queen. ~Sid Viciousreply 44105/17/2020

R441 - the PM's weekly meeting is between the PM and the Queen. Period. They don't just talk about government policy. They talk about the Commonwealth, the military, foreign affairs etc... The Queen doesn't interfere with government business. She can "advise" if asked but she knows her job well.

It's Prince Charles who has found himself in hot water in the past with making his views public or writing letters to ministers. He got his fingers rapped and so he should. He has said that when he's King, it will be different. We shall see if he can keep his mouth shut and remain above the fray.

by G-d save the Queen. ~Sid Viciousreply 44205/17/2020

[quote]She can "advise"

I still don't understand her role, other than to smile and wave and pretend she is better than everyone else.

[Quote]She became Queen while still a very young woman and has every detail of her life scrutinized since.

And she knew this from the time she was a small child. I watched "The Queen at War" a few weeks ago about her childhood from the time of Edward VIII's abdication through VE day. When she realized what her father's reluctant ascension to the throne meant, she began to pray for a little brother.

by G-d save the Queen. ~Sid Viciousreply 45905/18/2020

[quote]And she knew this from the time she was a small child.

And her parents should have acted like she was going to be the monarch. Edward ascended to the throne as a single man. Who thought he was going to have time to meet and marry an acceptable woman? Was he like Henry the 8th and have members of his court out scouring the world for a suitable mate? From the moment he ascended, he scorned the position and its protocol. And when Wallis Simpson became more miserable, that was the sign that this was not going to end well.

The Palace is smart to go the 'never complain, never explain' route with the Sussex book. They know that any real response would just fan the flames of publicity. To shrug and dismiss the whole thing as more soap opera spin by two troublemakers whom the family feels well shut of is the perfect attitude to take.

Aren't they all rich or equally near retirement age? I'm sure they just chill at home and wait for the Queen to call them for some conversation.

by G-d save the Queen. ~Sid Viciousreply 46805/19/2020

Most of HM’S LiW are past retirement age, some are rich (or rather, their husbands are), some are living in genteel poverty but all are aristocratic. Interestingly a few have been Americans married into the English aristocracy, e.g. The Countess of Airlie, born in New Jersey, who is the Queen’s senior LiW, since 1973. One assumes that they get on after 47 years.

by G-d save the Queen. ~Sid Viciousreply 46905/19/2020

It's so odd that a squillionairess like the Countess of Airlee, daughter of ultra-rich industrialist Otto Khan, should be born in New Jersey, but perhaps it was a nicer place back in the 1930's.

by G-d save the Queen. ~Sid Viciousreply 47005/19/2020

R470 - New Jersey has a bad rap because mostly people associate it only with Neward and the Turnpike.

New Jersey, especially northern New Jersey and areas like Bergen County, are filled with lovely small towns and beautiful homes with beautiful lawns, huge old trees, etc. It was named the Garden State for a reason. I was surprised myself to visit friends in that area, who have a beautiful home in Norwood, to see how nice the area was.

One day, when the next Pol Pot or Idi Amin or Stalin comes along, you'll be out of ammo because you spent them all on a bunch of gay gossips talking about a d-list actress who behaved really badly after being handed a golden ticket to fame, fortune, and lifelong luxury just as she was facing professional oblivion.

But, hey, it's your karma. Dex and Bodgea-Cat and the rest of us will be waiting at the other end of that tunnel to see how it goes as those gods decide where you're going in your next incarnation.

I love the queen, but I wish for her own sake she would retire from active duty. She would never abdicate (everyone assumes she made a promise to her parents back when her father was alive), but she could make Charles the Prince Regent to act in her place. He is more than ready to do it, and it would make sense.

No previous monarch has gone into her or his nineties still on active duty. She has earned a good rest.

That article at R514 itemizing all their expenses is pretty damning--damn, you have to admit, that is some world-class grifting!

The best part:

"While the couple is promising to pay when they make money, Baker writes, 'In the deal reached with the Palace, Harry and Meghan have kept their HRH titles but will not "use" them. This is significant as the status provides a mechanism for support — notably financial support from the taxpayer for security — to be provided to them.'”

R516 - "Do we believe this?

Since the wedding, Meghan is also said to have amassed a ($731,000) jewelry collection (including items gifted to her by Harry and the Queen), a collection larger than the late Princess Diana’s, including a stunning new diamond ring.”

No, WE do not. The Queen hasn't given Meghan much of anything, and at least $200,000 of that is Meghan's engagement ring, and the "stunning new diamond ring" is the new diamond shoulders with which she altered her engagement ring. I believe a slim new diamond band is added to the set.

Charles may have given her the Cartier diamond bracelet she wore at her wedding - no one is quite sure, but if he did, that and her engagement ring were the major pieces she got. With how obvious the Sussexes made themselves so early on in the game, it is highly doubtful that the BRF helped fill Meghan's jewellery box with anything from their own collection.

Her husband probably gave her a few really nice presents in gold over the two years they've been married. But the engagement ring and the Cartier bracelet alone would make up that figure.

As for it dwarfing Diana's collection, that is so stupid I'm surprised they even printed it.

They seem to have forgotten the massive sapphire and diamond parure Diana got as wedding presents from Gulf State potentates, the Prince of Wales Feathers diamond brooch, the massive sapphire surrounded by diamonds the Queen Mother gave to Diana as a wedding present, which Diana had set on a five strand pearl choker, her 18CT gold watch . . .

The statement is ludicrous on its face.

by G-d save the Queen. ~Sid Viciousreply 52105/23/2020

Thank you for answering that, R521. You were more detailed than I could have been. I would add that the jewelry that Meghan merched always looked cheap and more suited for teens and women in their early 20s. I'm thinking of some occasions where she wore multiple rings across her knuckles and some earring sets. After she appeared in public, one of her slavishly devoted fan blogs would "reveal" the name of the company that made them. Inevitably, they were Canadian.

by G-d save the Queen. ~Sid Viciousreply 52205/23/2020

The jewelry is practically of no consequence considering all the other astronomical expenses.

All this may seem fine except that Baker writes, “Controversially, Charles is allowed to classify this allowance to Harry as a business expense, which he can set against tax.

By my estimation Britain turned their back on them. The way MM was treated in the press was above and beyond the negative treatment received by any other royal family member. Mind boggling when you consider one of the Queen's sons is a pedophile and sex pest and his ginger wife has sold out and embarrassed that family time after time. But let's pick on the mixed race commoner because she had the nerve to be born outside the aristocracy and has opinions. She didn't just smile dumbly and go along with however anyone wanted to treat her, how very dare she!! Give me a break. First the public can't wait to get rid of her and now the public complains because she finally took their advice and left. I so feel for them, they can't win no matter what they do.

Oh, for fuck's sake. He's a prince. Not a prisoner. He didn't ask to be a prince. It was all just foisted off on him. He did not "run up" a $53 million dollar taxpayer bill. There were other officials on the other side of any agreements made. But the fact remains that the British public and the British media did not respect them or treat them fairly. So of course they left. And good riddance to all they left behind.

Leave him be to live his life in peace and quiet.

by G-d save the Queen. ~Sid Viciousreply 53005/23/2020

LOL Yeah, peace and quiet is just what the Sussexes want. That's why they wrote the book. And why they trademarked Sussex Royal a hot minute after getting married. And why the Duchess is demanding A-list movie role. And since poor, poor Prince Henry had royalty foisted on him, one would think he would have a bit more appreciate for all of the advantages his status has afforded him.

by G-d save the Queen. ~Sid Viciousreply 53105/23/2020

If they had not trademarked "Sussex Royal," someone else would have. And Big Liz would have NO way to stop that merch from hitting market, unless she paid a ransom.

[quote]But the fact remains that the British public and the British media did not respect them or treat them fairly.

That's not true at all. The British public was very enthusiastic about Harry and Megan's wedding. Many watched it and were interested in it.

The British press has always been nasty. Sarah Feguson was called the Duchess of Pork. There have been comments about how ugly the York girls are and how ridiculous their hats are. If you watch the show "The Windsors" it's a comic look at the Royal Family and part of what makes it so funny is that they target everything that's been said on these boards. Charles is stupid, Camilla runs the show, the York sisters are lazy and speak with vocal fry, William is pompous, Harry is stupid, Sarah is a grifter, it's all skewered on that show.

The fact is that Miss Meghan and Harry want to be able to be public figures and act however they want to act but they want to silence anyone who says anything negative about them.

R534, don't forget how the tabloids basically entrapped Sophie Wessex and tried to get her to take a bribe. She even had to give up her job as a result, but never complained and has now become one of the most-loved and respected royals.

Even the BRF know that respect has to be earnt, it doesn't just come with the title. Take a look at this article from nearly 20 years ago - it's appalling and far worse than anything Meghan ever got. If Meghan really felt that she was getting rough treatment from the tabloids there were plenty of other royal wives who not only know how she felt but had it even worse in their day, if she needed to talk about things with someone.

Sophie is the favorite of HM's daughters in law. She just buries her head and does her job and HM really appreciates that. in addition, Sophie loves military history, a favorite hobby of HM, and they are known to spend hours together going through the military annals in the libraries of Windsor Castle and Buckingham Palace.

Never mind that part of her job is being a beard for HM's youngest son, HM knows and appreciates that too.

Lillibet's probably enjoying the lockdown. She's likely putting her feet up and thinking, "So this is what retirement is like. Maybe Phil and I will go on a cruise. Then again maybe not..."

I'm not particularly a fan of royalty, but surely Her Maj has done more than her fair share of duties as monarch already. The woman is 94 years old, for God's sake. Let her enjoy the final decade or two of her life.

by G-d save the Queen. ~Sid Viciousreply 55305/25/2020

On the contrary, I'll bet she's hating it, r553. This is a woman who has devoted her entire life to public duty, who tamped down every emotion she ever had, every day of her life, in order to be a better at her job and not let her people down. She apparently mourned Churchill's retirement way back by saying that she couldn't imagine having to give up the job since one's whole life was moulded to the job. That was when she was in her 30's.

Lest we forget, long before there was Me-Again...

PrinCESS Michael's father was a Nazi party member and an Army officer during the Second World War. In fact, her father had not only been a member of the Nazi party but had also been in the SS, where he held the rank of Sturmbannfuhrer or "Assault Unit Leader" during the Second World War. After their divorce her mother moved to Australia, worked as a hairdresser and the original "Princess Pushy" grew up over the shop.

She was accorded the style and title of Her Royal Highness Princess Michael of Kent, the female equivalent to her husband's title: [bold]not being of royal birth,[/bold] she is therefore not titled Princess Marie Christine.

She's also haughty, gaffe prone (she once complained "The English distrust foreigners, they think the wogs begin at Calais"), and has been linked to other men. Princess Anne first dubbed her 'Princess Pushy' and the Queen once remarked mischievously to her husband's uncle, Lord Mountbatten 'that she sounds a bit grand to us.' Princess Margaret's son was said when asked what he would wish on his worst enemy, 'Dinner with Princess Michael of Kent.' The media have dubbed her half of the "Rent-a-Kents," for their habit of turning up at the opening of an envelope.

Her most famous moment stuffing those size 11 shoes in her mouth came in 2004 while dining at Da Silvano, a restaurant much favored by celebrities in Greenwich Village. Objecting to the noise level at a table of black diners near hers, she first slammed her hand down on their table and allegedly told them to "Get back to the colonies," as she and her party were moved to another table. One of the women at the table, Nicole Young confronted the Princess about her remark. Prince Michael is reported to have replied "I did not say 'back to the colonies' - I said 'you should remember the colonies.' Back in the days of the colonies there were rules that were very good. You think about it. Just think about it." The New York Post reported that the diners thought that the remark was racist. Da Silvano owner Silvano Marchetto, whose restaurant closed after 41 years in 2016, later apologized to the black diners for the princess's behavior. "The phrase was trying to be funny but it wasn't so funny, maybe," he said. "If someone told me to go back to Italy, I would be offended, too." "Royal Bigot", screamed a NYC tabloid, describing the incident as "Pushy Princess Rage" and labeling her the House of Windsor's "equivalent to trailer trash".

In September 2005, she was caught on tape complaining about the Royal Family after a News of the World reporter pretended to be a sheik and gained her confidence while pretending to be a buyer for her home.

While most of Princess Michael of Kent's revelations were pretty harmless (calling Princess Diana a 'nasty' and 'bitter' woman, who had been married merely as a 'womb'), it was her defense of Prince Harry for wearing the Swastika that really raised eyebrows. "But I believe that if he had been wearing the Hammer and Sickle there wouldn't have been so much fuss made."

Princess Michael has a reputation for being someone who cultivates people who can and are willing to be generous in order to have a royal at their table (hence the nickname 'Rent-A-Kents').

Rumors about Princess Michael of Kent's marriage to Prince Michael started almost as soon as they were married. In 1985, she was seen leaving the apartment of Texas oil millionaire J. Ward Hunt wearing a rather tragic red wig, and there were rumors of her canoodling in a New York movie theater with Senator John Warner, ex-husband of Elizabeth Taylor.

The blackamoor brooch was just one of the more recent offenses to good taste, no doubt reflective of her noble upbringing.

A few weeks after Archie was born, Jess brought her daughter Ivy to visit. The DM article about it was hilariously shady. They mention that the nonstop flight from Canada was eight hours, and implied that the visit was cut short. There were many photos (from JM herself) that show JM and the kid doing all sorts of activities that *weren’t* Visiting The BFF and Her Baby. It came off that JM flew 16 hours for a weekend trip where she didn’t even spend any time with her BFF and new baby.
