There was personal animosity in the palace towards Meghan, a consultant for The Crown claims

[quote]Lacey claims the palace did not know how to react to Meghan, who had an opinion and refused to be silenced. "There was personal animosity in the palace towards Meghan - and the feeling is mutual,” Lacey said (via The Sunday Times). "There was somebody in the palace - and I can't name them - who hated Meghan. There is no love lost there."

Whom do you suppose it could be?

Zara Tindall?

The Royal Family serves a purpose as long as the UK is so bitterly divided that an elected president would be a disaster.

When a confident ambitious black women who marries into the family gets receives hostility from within than a lazy scrounging paedophile rapist it should ring alarm bells that something is seriously wrong.

This is the organisation who forced two children to walk behind the coffin of their dead mother because the event had huge TV audiences.

by Anonymousreply 1710/12/2020

William and Kate are "Kensington Palace" - whenever the Cambridges are referred to, it's about KP.

If it's Buckingham Palace, it's either a very high level courtier/royal advisor, or the Queen and/or Prince Philip.

And, they said the same thing about Fergie 20 years ago, "The knives are out for Fergie in Buckingham Palace".

Where Meghan is concerned, there's always someone else to blame.

I don't doubt William disliked her and distrusted her from the start, but that's because he got her number early on. And, I don't doubt Meghan hated William right back - you could just as well have said, "Someone in Nottingham Cottage and Frogmore hated William and Kate."

And Meghan's envy and resentment of Kate, her desire to upstage her, her leaked nasty stories about her, the Mean Girl trick at Eugenie's wedding . . .

If people began disliking Meghan as soon as they realised her game, which was to use the title she'd been given by that same hateful Palace to self-aggrandise herself, and not to serve either the monarchy or Britain, then Meghan gave them plenty of ammo very early on, from Tiaragate to that last awful tour of South Africa where she stood there with one of the poorest countries in the world as a backdrop talking about how ill done by she was.

It was clear moments after the wedding that she wasn't going to stay the course.

And it is really sad to see a writer and journalist of Lacey's reputation now acting as a paid shill for Netflix and the Sussexes.

BP always means the Queen/Prince Philip and their close staff. KP means the Cambridges. Clarence House means the Wales. Although I think it likely that Camilla detests Meghan, as well. Perhaps Meghan shouldn't have released those photos of her at the NT and the Debenham school, as she'd agreed not to do, on the same day as Camilla's big domestic abuse speech.

Meghan never cared - it wasn't Wokeness: it was sheer, "I got what I want and you were fools to give it to me and I don't give a fuck how I shaft you back.

Shame on you, Mr Lacey.

I don’t think Zara Tindall is considered part of the palace as she lives a private life. Likewise Princess Michael, despite her title she and her husband do not receive civil list money and do not represent the crown officially so they aren’t part of the establishment.

It’s William most likely.

I imagine it is a courtier or a private secretary. There are many important and influential people in the palace who are not family members. They "run" the monarchy for the queen and her family.

It is weird that Megan loathes Trump because I would say she is as Narcissistic as him and to honest even more of a victim.

In some ways I feel sorry for her. I have no doubt Harry wanted to break free from Royal life and Megan is the fall guy for that. On the other hand her total lack of understanding and hypocrisy make me exhausted by her. The victim mentality is infuriating.

I saw the wedding in Windsor and the crowd adored them both. The Media lapped her up. For her to then discuss Racism and then say she hated the Media intrusion and then move to LA is playing everyone as fools.

I sensed she was going to be trouble but I tried to give her the benefit of the doubt. The ridiculous fiery black preacher at the wedding and the star-studded cast (most of whom didn’t even know her) cemented it for me. How true it all was, as Catherine and Camilla tried to stifle their laughs as the bug-eyed preacher ranted on and on and robbed a British royal wedding of all its traditional dignity, how true that Meghan would soon cause huge problems in the establishment and only exile would fix it.

by Anonymousreply 2910/12/2020

She could not "win" in the royal family, so she had to pick up her cards and leave the game -- and cry that she was cheated! She could not win because she would always be the wife of the second son, and Kate would always walk ahead of her. She couldn't bear that. My beef against her is that she should have thought that out before marrying the spare. Having not done so, she leaves and takes him with her. And he, poor besotted fool, breaks that heart of millions of grannies, veterans, soldiers, and young girls, not to mention his father and grandparents. For all the privilege he's had throughout his life, there is a price: duty. The rest of his family have lived by that code, with the exception of Andrew and the Duke of Windsor. My British friends, including those who have no interest in the royal family, feel that he shat on the nation.

maybe so, but it was out of context. Meghan had no major religious background prior to that wedding, bringing that guy in was just a stunt to show the TV audience how black she was (or, wanted to look). It only served to make her look as an even MORE inappropriate and self absorbed choice for a royal bride. Meghan did NOT change the monarchy, and in fact the monarchy sharply declined her antics and hence she ran back to California, her wealthy prince in tow.

The "Black preacher" was the Presiding Bishop of the Episcopal Church USA, the American branch of the Anglican Communion of which the Church of England is part. So it seemed like a good idea on paper, Anglican, American, and Black. But he was too American.

Meghan had no real religious background but underwent a C of E baptism in preparation for the marriage.

One thing I will say in defense of Meghan, and Diana, and Sarah, is that the courtiers seem more than happy to let these women fall on their faces. If the courtiers report to HM and they want these women to follow a specific way of dressing, behaving, what kind of engagements to pick and so on so as to be ‘on brand’ then why don’t they spell it out for them beforehand? The ‘grey men’ sound like a bunch of tattletale cunts that run to The Queen at every transgression and let the perceived damage keep happening instead of educating the person on what they’re doing wrong. The Queen should be running The Firm as the Japanese imperial court does, the Imperial Household Agency dictates EVERY detail of the public persona of the imperial family. Every woman is on-brand, from jewels to shoes to hair to how they fold their hands in public. There’s no fucking up because it’s all planned out beforehand. Of course, mouthy Meghan would rebel against it but this would be all laid out for her before marriage: this is how the role works, sign here.

It's "Pickerill", poached by Harry to be Meghan's Assistant Private Secretary, was announced as leaving her position to "move abroad" as soon as the Sussexes moved into Frogmore Cottage and the baby's arrival in May 2019. She was initially supposed to stay through the end of the year, but it was thought "sensible" that someone come in sooner so that they could be ready to take over when Meghan "returned to work" after maternity leave.

It was given out that Kensington Palace had "known for months" that Pickerill was leaving, which basically means that everyone knew that in the short time she had been working for Meghan, she'd already had it and was only sticking it out through loyalty to the BRF so her departure after such a short time didn't look too bad. It was all described as "amiable". The latter means they cut a deal by which Pickerill signed an NDA, nobody leaked any nasty stories about anybody or lodged accusations, and that after a decent interval, Pickerill could go back to working for the BRF.

Unsurprisngly, Pickerill did not "move abroad" but resurfaced back with the Cambridges as Director of Earthshot, which has also been in progress for more than two years - it's likely she knew about it, indicated interest in leaving being Meghan's dogsbody and becoming involved with Earthshot, and it was all handled nicely, for once.

What would you rather be? Director of a major initiative by the future King William V or Meghan Markle's gofer?

Meghan is the kind of person who brings the animosity in with her, since her first and only question on entering any situation is, Who's For Me and Who's Against Me?

In her latest Zoom Punditry Performance, she referred to Harry's family as "the institution" and you could actually see the rage in her her eyes and tight jaw as she talked about the evils of social media . . . yes, the woman who last year tried to get Instagram to transfer over to her new account the "followers" she'd gathered on SussexRoyal, her wannabe Forever Royal platform.

She lies like a rug. She's filled with resentment and hate.

Others have recently commented on the rage radiating from her eyes and jawline as she talks about compassion and kindness and making the world a better place.

Given the noticeable shift in her expression, another not too veiled insult at her husband's family as she referred to them as "the institution", and the rumours of Harry being called back to the UK for a little talk with Gran, one wonders if something is at last up behind the scenes re the HRHs and titles.

While I get she is a B grade TV actress who I had heard of , her fame ,as such, is due entirely on her marriage to Harry. As a modern woman she played the oldest game in the book and then announced she was the ultimate independent woman, except she was a victim, the ultimate victim. I feel sorry for her. The Narcissism is high with her.

She will hate the hand that gives her the fame she desires. She will always use the Royal Family to show she is better ,but equal.

The saddest of all is Harry. It all comes back to Diana. Meghan is clearly the Diana substitute and the anger he must still feel after his mother’s death and the surreal way he was made the sacrificial lamb with his brother to walk behind her coffin to save the Monarchy and also because the Public demanded to see a display of mourning. That would have destroyed him.

Puh-lease. It was the wrong decision, having them walk behind the coffin, but it was TWENTY-THREE years ago. Harry is nearing 40 years old, how long is he going to milk that 20 minute walk for pity and continued victimhood?

It's not like they tied him to the back of the gun carriage and dragged him to the Abbey. It was a sombre, respectful accompaniment by her male relatives. They only walked part of the way, from St. James onwards. Besides, why did Harry say he was 'glad' he joined the funeral procession, back in 2017?

Oh, the crockery must be hitting the walls in Montecito this afternoon, as Jan Moir of the DM comes out swinging for Kate and making no bones about why.

Kate always understood the long game; Meghan never understood it.

I believe the rental listing has been taken down. Either it was an oversight, or Harry and Meghan hoped no one would notice and they could make some extra bucks.

Saying that Meghan looked at photos of herself with the BRF in public and realised she "didn't belong" is bullshit. They bent over backwards for her, despite getting very early on a glimpse of what they were in for as the wedding preparations went on. It was Meghan herself who refused to behave as if she belonged. Her view, obviously, was that they should accommodate her, rather than having gotten in and agreed to perform as a working royal, she should have actually dressed and behaved like one.

All you have to do is look at the outfit Meghan chose for the BP balcony appearance celebrating the RAF's 100th birthday: everyone else dressed in spring pastels, and there's Meghan, in an outfit that she clearly thought made her look like Audrey Hepburn in Love in the Afternoon or, depending on your point of view, a married woman in her forties out for an afternoon assignation with a young lover, or a rich widow at the Reading of the Will in the Libarary. A black or as close to it as a computer screen would show (a poke in the eye right off the bat at the Queen) cocktail dress.

The ensemble was totally inappropriate, especially next to the quietly but beautifully dressed Kate in her pale blue, beautiful hat, and RAF brooch. Kate looked royal, Meghan looked like the catty arriviste she was.

It was clearly Meghan's intention to stand out, not to belong, and she succeeded, and then blamed the BRF for having any expectations of her fitting in at all. Fitting in was never her goal: standing out and gaining the global platform she knew she could take out with her as soon as possible was, and it showed.

I think there's some truth in the story and it stems from rumours or actual information about MM's past, specifically that she, Misha Nonoo and Jessica Mulroney have some history of yachting.

However, there were those who were assigned to help her, ie Samantha Cohen, and those who reached out to her for Harry's sake, ie the York girls.

And in classic fashion, Meghan and her PR keep attempting to trample on any news cycle involving the Cambridges - and then bleat about humane tech and a kind digital world.

The Cambridges released their plans via a new website for eight programmes aimed at assisting military veterans. You know, actual plans about actually doing something that actually materially can help actual people.

Only, of course, the Archewell site has no real programming on it.. But, mustn't let grass grow under one's feet, must one!

Despite the attempt, the Archewell story is well below the "fold" so to speak on HELLO's landing page, you have to scroll down to find it, but the Cambridges and their plans for the October half-term is up top in much bigger print.

But one must give Meghan her due: she never gives up trying to put the boot in to the people she hates with a burning passion that she just can't hide - despite the fact that without them she would be a nearly 40 year old fading d-list actress facing professional and personal oblivion.

I wonder if the penny's dropped for the Queen yet?

Harry is a royal and will always have gossip interest attached to him. Markle: little to no interest in her and her potato headed child.

According to the latest Lady CC video, MM told her PR people that she wanted to be the most famous person in the world.

And that means she wants ATTENTION. Any attention. And bad publicity is better than no publicity at all. So, no, I'm afraid she will not stop with all the "LOOK AT ME" stuff.

Harry, on the other hand, who knows? I doubt he's living the life he thought he would be living when he jumped ship, and I sometimes wonder what he talks about to the people that MM is trying to attract to "their" brand. He's not very bright, probably dumb, and can he be a sparkling conversationalist?

It's Archie I feel sorry for.

R100 - Yea, No, Sorta.

by Anonymousreply 101Last Thursday at 8:58 AM

We all know what Meghan wanted, but as R99 points out, it's harder to figure out Harry.

Harry, I believe, shares his mother's propensity for fantasist assumptions about how Things Will Be If I Only I Can . . . fill in the blank: Marry Charles and become Princess of Wales! Marry a wife whose glamour will help me outshine my older brother even he IS going to be King one day! Put the boot into the family that I blame for every lousy feeling I have after which the lousy feelings will melt like snow in June! etc., etc.

Harry's been acting out to deal with his feelings of inferiority for more than a decade. The handwriting was on the wall long before he met Meghan - e.g., when at his father's 50th birthday party, organised by the two Wales brothers, a 14 year old Harry stripped naked and ran around the room starkers, mortifying the guests, his father, and his brother.

And his feelings of inferiority are not merely the result of being the "Spare". He has dyslexia, was a terrible student. was passed through Sandhurst because of his name, not his abilities, couldn't pass the Major's exam and so got an honorary Major rank from his Gran. His brother is no genius, but managed to get at least a respectable academic degree in a fine university.

William outranks him, is taller, doesn't have dyslexia, managed a uni degree, was a helicopter rescue pilot, sowed his wild oats and then married a nice Home Counties girl who over a decade has proved herself to be exactly what the monarchical doctor ordered, and a first-class breeder - three adorable kids one after the other because she began at 30 instead of 37, and with the birth of the first one turned Harry into the adjacent, rather than direct line . . .

It was hopeless for a man who wasn't self-aware and mature enough to see the glass for what it was compared to the rest of the world: considerably more than half-full.

Harry must have figured that his only hope of distinguishing himself was to marry defiantly . . . and in so doing, cutting off his nose to spite his face.

I imagine that Meghan Markle is a far harsher task-mistress than Harry's Gran ever was.

Very good, R102.

Does Harry really have dyslexia? I've never heard that.

by Anonymousreply 103Last Thursday at 10:17 AM

Bite me R98. This is DL.

by Anonymousreply 104Last Thursday at 10:25 AM

[R103] - Yes, which explains at least part of his academic performance, although one assumed that he got the best help imaginable. Still, other people have learned to cope with dyslexia and gone on to academic excellence. I believe Princess Eugenie is also dyslexic, but don't quote me on that, I haven't looked it up.

The thing is, Harry isn't a "coper". He's been surrounded by people erecting cushions around him all his life to minimise his discomfort and dissatisfaction. Max Hastings was right when he wrote this early last year:

Leaving the military, which gave Harry purpose, structure, comrades, pride, and something separate from William, was the worst decision Harry ever made. That, and not marrying the fun-loving and lovable Chelsy, the daughter of a hugely wealthy man with land in South Africa, who didn't need Harry's title for wealth or status.

Harry kept his looks though, he’s got that at least. He’s bald on his crown but his hair is striking colored, William developed a bean-shaped head and his slim tailored clothes give him a Nosferatu appearance. I don’t know what Harry is going to do about his hair though, eventually that bald spot is going to look ridiculous and he might have to do something dramatic like William did. In that case, he might be screwed and become just another dopey looking Windsor.

by Anonymousreply 108Last Thursday at 4:55 PM

it’s true, Harry has a rugged sexual energy that is way higher than Williams. I mean, William will be king eventually and he married an English rose, so he has the upper hand. He’ll be the second coming of Elizabeth II: sturdy, stable, traditional.

but Harry is more the Alpha in temperament.

by Anonymousreply 109Last Thursday at 5:36 PM

What r108 said.

by Anonymousreply 110Last Thursday at 5:36 PM

the only non-Alpha thing about Harry is that he was taken in by the grifter Negress.

by Anonymousreply 111Last Thursday at 5:38 PM

Another vote for R108's response. Scraggly teeth, balding scraggly hair, the bony nose he got from Prince Philip and his father becoming more prominent along with his bald spot, and an almost startling loss of vibrancy.

It's William who, despite the baldness, looks more and more like his mother (he has her nose instead of the Mountbatten one), seems to have filled out rather than shrunk, and appears more assured and commanding with each passing year.

Charles is going to be hard put to claim the lion's share of the light when HM goes and Charles ascends for what everyone knows will be a much briefer reign, and all eyes are, instead, looking past him at the increasingly seasoned William and his perfect consort . . .

by Anonymousreply 112Last Friday at 4:47 AM

Him being ginger is pretty much THE ONLY thing that makes Harry somewhat interesting in terms of looks. Let's face it, he'd look rather boring with, say, brown hair.

Once the hair is gone, Harry will look fucking plain and dumb. Unlike William who looks pretty alpha now that he has finally come to term with going bald.

by Anonymousreply 115Last Friday at 1:41 PM

Charles will have a short reign, that’s just human biology. He won’t be able to reign 60+ years, as he’s coming to the throne in his 70s. I strongly suspect his reign will be a sharp contrast to his mother’s, and it will be something similiar to the reign of Edward VII in that he’ll throw aside some of the stodgy traditions of his mother and have a very fashionable, glittering, lively court as Edward VII did. It will be a huge novelty to having a king again, after his mother’s long reign. Camilla, as queen, will be showered in all the diamonds of the house, as is her right and as his beloved wife. It will last a short time though, as Charles already looks like he’s got health problems. William’s reign will be like George V, a return to tradition. William’s court will be like his grandmothers. It will be less glittering because he’s got a longer game to play. But it will be respectable and sturdy and country oriented with dogs and horses and all that.

Straight from the mouth of Meghan's PR.

And "standing by" a friend "privately" isn't standing by them at all. Standing by them publicly is what counts, not continuing to accept their phone calls and texts for comfy convo whilst remaining totally silent whilst they are vilified in the press.

But that would be typical Meghan. "I'm a loyal person!"

Except when it's convenient not to be- you know, like the way I undermined the legitimacy of everything my little labradoodle, Omid, put into "Finding Freedom" that I fed him, so I could tell "my side" of the story . . . until the Mail brought the book into my lawsuit and it became necessary to leave dear Omid with egg all over his face?

R119, I don't think she was a prostitution whore- she's never been attractive enough. She's cute at best and has an absolutely too weird barrel body to sell it.

Sparkles lawsuit begins January 11th. We can take bets on whether or not she will try to withdraw; who the 5 Friends are and whether or not they will testify; chances of Sparkles appearing live in person in front of the British public who hate her to testify in an action she could lose.

I'm still wondering who the a******s are that the Mulroney woman is referring to in her twitter post.

by Anonymousreply 123Last Sunday at 4:06 PM

R120 - Trial is set for 11 January, so one assumes that the Harkles will sail in a few days earlier to meet with Meghan's solicitors, staying at Frogmore (you can bet your arse the paps will be staking Frogmore out to catch any signs of life there a week before the trial starts). Harry will probably take the opportunity to meet with his Gran and his Da, at least. Anyone's guess if he'll see William, or if the BRF in its desperation to hold this We're Still A Family! story together will issue a few well-chosen images of Harry and/or Sparkle arriving at Windsor to pay a courtesy call on HM.

I cannot imagine that after all the mud Meghan The Champion Of A Humane Digital World slung at Kate, especially, through what she glaringly fed to the Scobie book and nasty stories leaked through Lainey, Nicole Cliffe, and Sunshine Sachs PR, that Kate and Meghan will ever show up in a Happy Families Photo Op again. Even dutiful Kate has her limits, and besides, I doubt William would countenance it.

Given that January will be only three months before the "year end review" of the "arrangement", it might also be an opportunity for Gran and Charles to raise some impending issues with Harry: his citizenship, his HRH, his ducal title, and where he thinks he'll be in five years.

Charles is a bit like his mother: he prefers to hide from difficult conversations and let stronger men (viz. to wit: his older son and heir) to be thrown under the bus instead for taking the stronger line that should have been taken much earlier.

by Anonymousreply 124Last Monday at 5:25 AM

I think you're having a daydream. The Harkles will never set foot in Frogmore, and none of the BRF will be seen to have entertained them during Sparkles' trial, especially "Gran."

There will be no "talks" about megxit in January -- it's all been long decided. Come March a polite carefully worded letter will be issued. The End.

Charles has zero influence. The palace courtiers and HM regard William as the Alpha and Charles is simply a rubber stamp. Hence, Harry and Meghan’s exile. William insisted on it.

The assertion that Charles, next in line, has "zero influence" is laughable, I don't believe that for a second. Although Will is coming into his own, he is not the Alpha -- how very sexist of you, and right in front of my face.
