Megharry pay back the Millions for foggy ol Frogmore Cottage

Yup! Megharry have paid back the $3.1 Million of taxpayer money that went into renovating Frogmore Cottage. Come on, love them or hate them, you’ve got to admire them for that right?

How long until they’re billionaires? Meghzy will not stop until the royal family come begging for her to come back! Suck it Kate!

Prince Charles paid that money back.

Why would anyone find them admirable for that?

She’s much more charismatic than Kate. I’ve always thought that. Kate is just more fitting for the role of traditional mom that queens are required to be.

Harry and Meghan are a good match, they both needed each other to make it to the level of life they are at that they both wanted.

by Anonymousreply 5609/08/2020

I see these 2 as 2 people: where 1 was really unhappy but couldn’t quite figure out how to escape, & the other 1 wanted to escape the drudgery of being a single actress, wanting more out of life, like starting a family, but not knowing exactly what that looked like because too many men are just too fucked up to commit.

There was something in the other that each recognized when they met: they each wanted to be happy, and wanted to be happy with someone else who was willing to do anything by their side, to be happy.

What I believe blocks many observers from understanding what happened with these two is that:

a) Many assume that being a Prince in a Royal Family or being a woman, any woman, regardless of her lack of aristocratic ancestry or being an aristocrat, who marries a Prince and thereby marries into the Royal Family, is or must be the best thing ever to accomplish, even if the actual Prince doesn’t feel that way, nor does his bride;

b) That due to the aforementioned assumption of how magnificent it is to be a royal or to marry one, the newlyweds MUST not ever question the public assumption, nor must they act in any way that challenges those assumptions, because the observers ‘ assumptions are far more valid & are actually true, just because they say so.

Some people actually DO believe that they’re better off& happier with a life partner. Some people actually DO feel trapped in a life they, themselves wouldn’t choose if the choice was theirs, but made for them by random birth rights, and some people really DO want something other than what we, the general public, perceive and assume to be a “perfect” or “idyllic” life, due to being royalty, and some people really DO fare better together, as a pair, rather than alone, or with who we believe is their appropriate “partner”, and some people really DO know this, and choose to pursue these things, despite the approval of their peers, family, country, or titles, and some people will actually SUCCEED by going against the grain, specifically when going against the grain is an idea or status quo, constructed by birth rights, or by complete strangers, who somehow have appropriated them as their “own”, rather than seeing them for who they truly & actually are: two people who had the balls to say “fuck it” to the establishment, & decided to check out the other side of life, as they, THEMSELVES, envision it, rather than live as proxies for our own “aspirations”, specifically aspirations that we project upon them, being that we aren’t Royalty, & will never actually fulfill, but value as omnipotent, even if it makes those whom we project these things upon, are completely MISERABLE.

Imagine living your entire life with little choice or personal agency, just because you’re expected to, by way of birth, or because a bunch of strangers who claim to see you as their optimal embodiment of life aspirations, which they, themselves, cannot actualize, tear you & your chosen wife, limb from limb, because she isn’t part of someone else’s “vision” or “best choice “ being deemed insufficient, due to her background & race, yet deny this, continuing to wish tou harm, while also wishing you failure on your endeavors, including your marriage, family, & career?

Every single, negative, racist, misogynistic post on the internet, solidify to this couple that they made correct assessments regarding the situation they found themselves in, & undoubtedly crystallizes to them that they were 100% correct in their understanding of what it meant for them to live life via others’ expectations, vs. theirs.

These 2 have balls, & before they met, had a ball, each. Together, they have BALLS, Good on them for using them to play the game called life, TOGETHER,, as a team, leaving behind a stadium filled with people who pretended to be “for” them, until they weren’t, based on personal unhappiness, classism, racism, misogyny, & some of the POOREST sportsmanship displayed by a group of pretty shitty, delusional and entitled people, EVER.

For me, I was so in awe of her taking this on. And she quit. It was hard. So she quit. She willingly took the job, didn't like it, quit and now they both criticize HIS family members who still rely on it as their jobs. It's not hatred.

Loyalty is important to me. Toughing it out with grit and grace is important to me. You can quit in a polite way and not screw over family.

It's a moot point whose money Harry used. He's earned next to nothing on that order in his life, he's a child of extravagant social and economic privilege - maybe the up-front retainer Netflix allowed him to do it, (and that's all it was, a deal isn't "worth" whatever it's stated as until the programming is a success), maybe he broke into his trust fund in the expectation of earning big bucks from Netflix, maybe his father leant him the money also in the expectation that it would be paid back when he was son was a bona fide multimillionaire in his own right.

The point no one, not even Meghan, would have been in any doubt about was how bad it would look if they didn't, so they bit the bullet and did, and it was the right thing to do.

As racists heads exploding and the "lovely couple" - please, I may bring up my lunch. The BRF didn't hate them, the Queen and Charles were extremely good to them, they're a couple of grifters, and they got what they wanted, and Meghan, particularly, came into the game in bad faith. Hollywood was always her aim, and she used them to get to it. If they hate her now, she earned it.

The only thing that really would have made my head explode is if she actually made a success of the royal gig and showed the remotest understanding of the role it plays in alignment with the UK government.

Instead she flounced out like the prima donna many of us, including Prince William, saw her for from the start.

The only other thing that would make my head explode is seeing them trying to parade themselves as royals again IN Britain.

They belong in Hollywood: shallow, pretentious, greedy, and hypocritical - "We can all do better!" Harry lectured us about carbon footprints - and then bought a monster home with 16 bathrooms for a family of three.

I don't care how much money they make - as long as they stay out of Britain and are relieved of their titles.

by Anonymousreply 8209/08/2020

R76, isn't there something insanely narcissistic about their PR game? All of the victim role playing and insane control of the narrative - no criticism is ever allowed or valid, even if it's warranted?

Which was a mistake ... because if you aim for the Queen, you better not miss.

by Anonymousreply 8309/08/2020

No one here who is not denigrating these two is obsessed. I read gossip like anyone else here does, and I stay away from most Royal gossip, because I find every single Royal to be boring AF, save for Harry.

That said, I don’t read much about him and Meghan, either, because gossip is funnier when there’s actuall scandal.

Where’s the scandal? OMG! Harry married an actress who isn’t WHITE and PURE as the Royal driven snow? Perhaps being an American allows me to not see that as scandalous?

That said, what DOES interest me regarding this situation, is the MELTDOWN a bunch of assholes are experiencing, due to two complete strangers getting married & starting their own lives.

Why?

Because it correlates to an insidiousness that is pervasive in our current, Western world as we know it, made up of xenophobia, misogyny, and racism. And what intrigues me most is the parent denials provided by those who have enough audacity to anonymously pronounce their “boundaries”, yet get their proverbial knickers in a bunch, the moment someone calls them out on their motives behind it all.

What’s on it for me? More insight in what I experience too, when I live my life amongst a bunch of hypocritical cowards, who tell me I’m wrong to assume that their poor treatment of me isn’t due to my race and gender, rather than the truth: that they’re racist scum, and see me as less than human, or tolerate me if I meet their expectations, acting as they see fit, in order to reinforce the false beliefs that they proclaim about themselves, yet simultaneously, expecting me to support their racism, by denying it, and by primarily, denying my own negative experiences, created by their racism!!!

So yes, every now and again, i’ll check in and see that nothing has really changed, nor will it, because racism is not only harmful to people of color, it is supported by silence of those who see it, yet say nothing about it.

I’m not going to be the good & obedient house nigga for any of you cunts, nor will I support your bullshit narratives and denials of racist motives for anonymously attack a woman of color, such as myself, based on false accusations and by bringing her character into question.

You see, I’ve experienced this crap all of my life, and it’s not because I’m a snowflake, as snowflakes get steppingstones on & melt, however I DON’T, now will I.

Am I projecting my assertions on to Meghan? Fuck no. I’ve lived around racist fuckwads all of my life, and just like her, know what I’m dealing with and who I am dealing with, when I see it.

So I comment occasionally, to remind you cunts who are responsible for this specific kind of insidious behavior, that you are not hiding behind your protestations, reasoning, or paper thin denials when you go online to denigrate and troll complete strangers and the challenges they face, due to people who cannot offer their fellows dignity and respect, because they’re entitled, selfish, self important and terrified of anything they cannot control, racist, cunts.

R59, meeting a Prince isn’t a personal goal for me. Meeting honest, kind, good hearted people, however, is.

R70, what you see as weakness is actually called acceptance, and what you see as strength is called denialism.

No. Every anti Sussex blog has repeatedly daily comments with people linking their own toxic narc member. They daily comment on how Meghan is like their narc. It's not coincidence. It's armchair psychology which pushes the deranged ones buttons. Every royal family member has pr. Why are the Sussex deemed different.

by Anonymousreply 8509/08/2020

R83 - The victim card was absolutely central to Meghan's plan. Without it, she would have been "revealed" for the lying grifter she is.

And without being mixed race, she wouldn't have been able to play the victim card so well.

She started on that road at least a year before they were engaged.

It's central to the narcissist's approach to life broadly (cf. Harry's mother, who never once in any way showed any understanding of the mistakes she made in handling her marriage), but in this case, it was also a cold-blooded strategy to ensure that she got out fast with her excuses ready to hand.

The Scobie book (which by the way fell off all the Best Seller lists in two weeks) was an exercise in victim mentality, revenge, and shallow petulance.

She got all her rocks off, slung mud at the people who made her name famous, and gave her the tools to make herself rich and get back to the only life she ever wanted . . .

I say fair play - Meghan did it.

But that doesn't mean it's a good look or that history will judge her kindly.

This whole thread is redundant (as usual). We were already discussing the updates regarding the Frogmore renovations on this thread.

I don't know why people open threads regarding any of the British Royals, simply to label them scum. The citizens of the UK (I'm not) live in a democracy, and have the power to elect a party and officials who would do away with the monarchy.

I think it's ridiculous to try to simply characterize anyone who posts on these threads based on whether or not they appear to approve or disapprove of the Susseces. I can't claim I 'loved' them when I was still rooting for them, and I don't 'hate' them now that I've come to see them in a poor light. I was chatting about the BRF before MM joined the party. It was just like adding a new player to the Monopoly board. We need a new Panama hat Monopoly piece for MM.

Anyway, I think it's good news if they're paying for the Frogmore renovations, even when I know it has absolutely no bearing on my life. It's just chat, after all.

I always hit "Ignore" for the troll who refers to the Sussexes as "the Susseces."

It's a proper name, not a common noun.

R57 and R84, you seem sincere so I'll try to give you a different perspective.

People like to gossip and snark. Harry is just a dim spare, but Meghan, who went from suitcase girl to Toronto socialite and Goop wannabe to royal bride, is a great gossip story. And unlike you (based on your outpourings above), some of us are old cynics who don't see in them a great love story, but rather an ongoing comedy of manners.

Harry and Meghan do all kinds of unintentionally funny things: making grand, corporate-speak pronouncements while jet setting around with A-list friends; posing as progressive humanitarians while being a member of/marrying into a hierarchical monarchy and using the funds therefrom to buy a huge estate in one of the richest zip codes on earth; posting ridiculously detailed manifestos on Instagram (!) which then have to be back-tracked when it turns out nothing was agreed beforehand; making one of the most powerful men in Hollywood squirm with discomfort by pitching him in a royal receiving line; most certainly cooperating with (if not actually ghostwriting) a hilariously petty, self-aggrandizing our-version-of-events biography; more comical PR statements to accompany their windfall Netflix deal (for which neither have any qualification); etc.

I'm looking forward to more of the same!

Right on, R94.

Put another way: all us “old cynics” have been around long enough to have seen and heard it all before, so it becomes easy for us to spot yet another pair of “do as we say, not as we do!” jetsetting bullshitters who preach right and wrong to the rest of us.

R1, Netflix didn’t just cut them a check for $150 million dollars. Maybe they got a small advance or signing bonus. Maybe.

Do people give YOU money for doing absolutely nothing?

by Anonymousreply 9609/09/2020

R94 nailed it.

by Anonymousreply 9709/09/2020

Good that the money has been repaid (however and by whom).

Have they found freedom yet?

[quote]r45 I'll bet Harry throws a mean fuck.

I just don't see it. He's a Virgo. I'd be surprised if he moaned that much. I can envision him as completely silent during sex, apart from one or two involuntary ahh-s.

No freedom as long as Harry is using the Invictus Games as a PR exercise for him and his toothy wife. He has to go.

by Anonymousreply 10009/09/2020

Silly, They meant freedom from responsibility to anyone but themselves, and the drudgery of having to actually work for a living.

by Anonymousreply 10109/09/2020

R99 - Cannot agree. Harry looks like a Class A grunter/snorter.

Meghan probably practiced those moans in front of the bathroom mirror from her twenties onward.

R94 that was spot on! Lady C would be PROUD honey!

R73 - No veteran organizations were dumped by the Sussexes. Do you have a link for your comment on veterans groups other than the Daily Mail or other British Tabloid?

Fuck off megstan. Edward Lane Fox, known as Harry's Brain until Toothy took over, is on record as saying he's "furious" with Harry's typical ignoring of invictus. The vets's group is just a PR vehicle for Haz anyway, it made him look somewhat sentient despite stumbling around drunk in London every night and treating women like garbage. Did I mention you should fuck off megstan?

by Anonymousreply 10509/09/2020

R94, and some of us youngsters (younger than they are) are genuinely, naively disappointed by their hypocrisy. Especially because they presented themselves as heroes- especially her. Underneath hate is hurt, is love...

And virgos can fuck, jerk. Even if we're sentimental babies.

Another vote for [R94].

R105 - Who and what is Edward Lane Fox?

by Anonymousreply 10809/09/2020

R108 one of the many random names and details insane anti-Meghan freaks use like mantras. It means something to them but not to normal people who aren't conspiracy nuts.

The anti-Meghan freaks are basically the same type of people who are QAnon nutcases, and likely overlap a lot.

I'd love to be a fly on the wall at Will & Kate's crib about now. I'll bet Kate has cussed Meghan like she was a filthy yard dog since this info came out.

Edward Lane Fox was brought in as an assistant to rehabitate Harry's image after a life of cheating his way through school, refusing to take the officer's exam but getting the position anyway, being a visible alcoholic in Nazi regalia, etc. Also to help manage his genetic and mental health problems.

Fox is a genius who convinced some people Haz is just a cheeky well meaning lad, and avoided the truth about him being a vicious prick, jealous of his brother, and eager to monetize his dead mother. Fox developed Invictus and adjacent activities to give Harry respectability, but needless to say, when Sparkles showed up, he was fired. Since then, despite not doing much of the actual work it takes to put on the events, Haz and his wife turn up to give a speech, take pictures, and promote Invictus as part of their personal brand. But they couldn't even be bothered to show up at a separate vets memorial last year, or even send regrets, because it was the same day as the Lion King showing.

And it's been further downhill from there. A long planned LA benefit concert to be sponsored and streamed by Amazon next year prior to the sports games was abruptly canceled around the signing of the Netflix deal, supposedly because of Covid. Fox, who is still a director at Invictus, was reportedly livid at this turn, and instead of a smooth pivot to an all-streaming event on Amazon, it's up in the air.

All this is widely known now, Harry's popularity has taken a big hit in the UK, and his true nature of basically being a professional coffin follower is in full bloom. He gave a speech to a bunch of money managers about his years in therapy for quite a bit of money, is in bed with Netflix and their tacky Diana musical, and is expected to produce Diana content for the NF vultures. This is the guy now swanning around Hollywoid who gets PTSD flashbacks of dead mom when cameras click, lol.

"Fox, who is still a director at Invictus, was reportedly livid at this turn..."

Someone please explain to Harry why pissing off your former publicist who knows all your secrets is a bad idea?

And then repeat it a few more times, so it has some hope of sinking in.

R112, I didn’t know all that. Just thought he was an Invictus exec. Huh.

They’ve had advisors and fixers at every step of the way, but they barrel ahead heedlessly. It’s so entertaining to watch. In the case of Invictus, he’s shat upon them twice, which sucks for the athletes. The military is like religion. Even if it’s not important to you, there are millions to whom it is. It’s not smart to shit on it.

R84 - Oh go take your moralistic bullshit over the Celebitchy.

This is a fucking gossip site and the crap the Harkles get is no different from the crap Sam Heughan or any other celebrity discussed here gets.

Good God, do you know how you sound when you talk about those two?! Like an obsessed teenager who thinks her rock star idol is really Sir Galahad.

Get over your fucking moralising. No one gives a fuck about your evident emotional obsession with a couple of spoilt twats that you've haloed with some spiritual importance.

Go back to the little shrine you built for them in your bedroom, you fucking adolescent hysteric.

The grownups will stay out here and gossip to our heart's content.

Meghan's faces are outraged that none of the BRF's birthday messages to Harry include Meghan, particularly the Cambridges' message.

I wonder if they remember what the Sussexes did on Kate's birthday last year (dropped their "We're leaving and here's our manifesto" bombshell despite the Queen ordering them not to)? Or their failure to wish Princess Charlotte Happy Birthday at all this year? Or their pointed omission of the Cambridge kids' titles when wishing them Happy Birthday?

All the photos used in the images are of a younger, happier Harry - not the sombre, grim-faced, hectoring puppet he appears as now, and none include Meghan or Archie.

Note that the Cambridges also chose to call Harry "Prince Harry" in their message, not The Duke of Sussex, as the Wales' and the Queen did.

^*Meghan's fans (not faces)

by Anonymousreply 11709/16/2020

Meghan's "fans" are mainly middle aged and older fraus in love with Harry. Next year when they are completely devoid of royal association he probably won't get any official birthday wishes at all.

by Anonymousreply 11809/16/2020

R23, the answer is right in front of you, if you look close enough. ;)

"Meghan's "fans" are mainly middle aged and older fraus in love with Harry."

I disagree. I think they're either shallow bitches or WOC, who are so thrilled to see a shallow bitch WOC become a princness, that they are blind to her flaws. Or they approve of her flaws.
