William will never speak to his brother ever again, right?

And he will probably ban his two sons from ever setting foot (in a private setting) in the US, at the very least in the West Coast.

by Anonymousreply 531Last Saturday at 8:29 PM

Probably.

Even if it comes out later, William wasn't the one, The Crown and other shows will paint him as the one who asked abut Archie's skin color as he is the most dramatic candidate.

by Anonymousreply 103/08/2021

Oh, they'll speak - civilly one presumes - at the Queen's funeral, Charles' coronation and then funeral, things like that.

Other than formalities, no they'll never speak, at least not for many, many years. If Harry were my brother and pulled all this shit on the family I wouldn't speak to him either.

Maybe it will get better after Mehgan divorces him and takes all his money.

by Anonymousreply 2103/08/2021

I read they are worth 10 million. 5 million of that is in the house and then they have a 10 million dollar mortgage.

The monthly payments must be huge. I think 5 million would only generate about 300K a year in a good market.

How much do you think they got for their Netflix deal? Does a thing like that pay out money for the deal or do they just get paid if they produce a pilot that gets picked up?

They seem a little low on cash to be living like Oprah.

Contrary to the insane nonsense on this thread, Harry and Meghan won over the hearts and minds of even those who have been suspicious of their motives. Oprah reminded everyone that she is a calm but skilful interviewer. She comes back to what was not answered and she questions what doesn't make sense. Meghan came across as very direct and quite humble. (except for the part about not researching the royal protocol:) Harry is not all that bright, but together they are a modern couple who chose to leave the abusive life they were "trapped" in. And they left early, young and fast. After trying many ways to remain dutiful. It was a quietly devastating rebuke to the royal family. The caste and racist systems everywhere are not hard to believe. Harry is Diana's most loving child and was always an iconoclast himself. He wasn't about to see his wife and family ruined. Meghan did not come across as anywhere near as manipulative as suspected. Harry and Meghan won. Not just the round. Game. Set. Match. They're free. And they'll still be together in 50 years time. 🌹

I thought the interview exposed the three grifters in a whole new way. I include Oprah because she is a business partner with Harry on a documentary, so there's no way she's going to ask deep or probing questions when she's working with him on a project (and she already got her $7-$9 million commitment from CBS).

If Harry thought he was a prisoner back then, what exactly does he think he is now that he's cut himself off from family and friends? No one in their right mind is going to want to hire these two.

One thing I haven't seen discussed here on DL (I admit to not having read all of the H/M threads) is the fact that Meg perfectly teed up Harry to take the fall when she dumps him for her next conquest. During the opening part of the interview with her alone (which I thought was strange.....Harry's the one who really left the Royal Family.....he's been in it his entire life and she was in 30 months or so?), some of what she said was what Harry told her and she repeated. She wasn't involved, as we are being led to believe. Harry was the only one. And he failed to get what they needed/wanted as far as security, financial backing, etc.

Then Harry joined the convo and had to admit that he didn't do anything to help Megs with her suicidal thoughts. I'm not convinced this part was true. He looked uncomfortable (who wouldn't be?) so I'm not sure if he was expecting to be asked about this or didn't want to out her narrative (he did a little later when he said that she was encouraged to take acting jobs when she had earlier said she had to give up her career). Whatever, he took the fall, and I am sure she will use that forever and ever as an excuse to dump him. "He didn't help me in my greatest hour of need! " A tear. "Poor Harry, he was so weak." She is always going to be the victim.

Can we also discuss the chickens? Chickens leading an authentic life are free range.....not living in a tiny hut (without some usual chickenhouse accoutrements....I grew up on a farm and notice these things) with a very small run. What are the odds that that chicken scenario was recently installed, just for this interview?!? Otherwise, they would have been standing in some major chicken shit if it had been there for months. The ground looked too clean to my eyes.) Does Montecito allow chickens? If this has been discussed and resolved before, I missed it.

And poor Archie. On their 2020 Christmas card, he was still a ginger, but has miraculously changed hair color. I've seen that with babies in their first year, but he's older than that. I don't mean to pick on him (it was his parent's decision to mislead with that Christmas card photo). I feel sorry for him and his sister.

I look forward to the next Kitty Kelly-type writer who releases a tell-all book about these two. You just know that there are people out there trying to secure contracts to start writing/investigating for the real story/dirt. It will keep the DL buzzing for a long time!

I'm not sure what will happen. The BRF never forgave the Duke of Windsor abdicating, and did everything they could to humiliate him as much as they could--even the Duke's beloved brother, George VI, loathed him after the abdication and would enjoy denying distinctions the Duke desperately craved for his wife. And then after George VI was gone his widow made sure her daughter continued to keepo him away from the UK as much as possible.

I would guess the big problem for William is not even Harry leaving the job as the nasty things Meghan has now said about his wife, and the resentments she's aired about his children.

Families are not always functional, and humiliating your wife (which Harry thinks William did to Meghan, and which now William knows Meghan has done publicly to Kate) is pretty unforgivable for many men. I would expect William and Harry do not talk for years.

OP et al, don't be daft! Whatever status of relations between Prince William and Prince Henry it is highly unlikely there is or will be a permanent falling out between the brothers. Relations may be strained at the moment and or at times in future, but that happens even in best of families.

Prince Henry need to get himself sorted out one way or another. That he chose an older half African American woman as his wife, and moving several thousands of miles away from home is perhaps unfortunate, but what were the alternatives I suppose.

Looking at what his uncle Andrew may have gotten up to with Epstein scandal perhaps things are for the best. Lot of second sons often isn't easy, more so now in this era of modern healthcare, sanitation and so forth all but assures the eldest son will not just live to inherit, but marry and breed children of his own. What was Prince Henry going to do in UK unmarried, alone and lonely? HRH did try and do the proper thing but only the Markel woman would have him, all the others turned Prince Henry down flat.

The Royals excel at long, slow, cold revenge. William will never forgive his brother for this, and he shouldn't.

As others have noted, Wills probably has a better understanding than anyone of how volatile Harry is; he'll likely say little if anything and bide his time, knowing that Megs will cut Harry loose and blame him for everything that goes wrong - just like she does everyone. At that point Wills, looking like the magnanimous one, will step in & pick the up pieces with little brother.

But it will never be the same again; he'll never let Harry close to himself or his family & who can blame him because Harry proved he can't be trusted.

I very much doubt that however it is handled, that the relationship between the two brothers will ever be healed. William also has a family to protect, and his children's patrimony, as well.

I don't disagree that William probably knows better than anyone else how emotionally damaged Harry is, but that same knowledge would also tell William that the unchanged, vicious, unrepentant, gleefully destructive Harry is too dangerous to engage with further.

I think the brother's relationship is over. Probably, Harry's relationship with the entire family is over. He is simply too labile, angry, vengeful, and under Meghan's expert tutelage, probably believes that he has struck a lethal blow at the monarchy's heart, and any bits of window dressing about still loving his brother to bits, is given the lie by Harry casting deliberate racialism innuendo on his brother and throwing his brother's wife under the bus via Meghan's vicious attack.

On a human level, it's horrifying.

On a political level, the polls taken after the interview show that Britons are standing by the Queen - nearly half, with the other half split between favoring the Harkles' narrative and those unsure.

If today's reports are to be believed, a statement has been drawn up on behalf of the Palace, but the Queen has refused to sign it, asking for "more time".

Again, IF this is true, it confirms what I personally have believed well before Meghan came onto the scene: the Queen cannot handle anger, confrontation, or acknowledgement of certain kinds of emotional realities.

To the extent that that quality prevented her from dealing out Tough Love when she should have, and that includes to the max the behaviour of her second son, Prince Andrew, never mind telling Harry that Meghan was manifestly unsuited to the rigors and constraints of royal life and to quit the royal gig and go marry her in America, never mind, when Harry told her after leaving the military that he was thinking of leaving royal life, she should have said, "Go for it, lad!" instead of persuading him to stay in.

Much as I, like many, respect the Queen's 70 years of dedication to job and country, I blame her more than anyone else for the mess here. But three weeks ago, when announcing the not unexpected lifting of the Sussexes royal patronages, military honours, and positions with the Commonwealth, she just HAD to add in a demonstrably false line about both remaining "much loved members of the family".

At first I though the inclusion of that sentence was political oblige, so to speak. Now, I think it really represents the Queen's fantasy that that really is the case. She simply cannot accept the reality before her.

And that failure to acknowledge emotional reality is at the heart of the destruction here. Harry and Meghan have simply taken advantage of the weak link here: it's the Queen.

That doesn't absolve Harry and Meghan for their disingenuousness, outright lies, glaring intent to do harm, etc., but they would never have had the opening if the Queen hadn't given it to them.

This IS the Queen's fault.

Agree with you mostly r104, but why take issue with the live about remaining loved family members? She does love Harry and is probably worried sick about him and what will happen with Archie. She's a grandmother as well as a Queen. She knows his issues.

It would have been cold to leave that line out. It draws the distinction between doing her job as monarch, and still remaining a concerned grandmother. Two roles but different expectations. She needs to underline that.

Harry and Meghan now have power, which they gained by laying the suspicion of racism over every member of the Royal Family except the two who are likely to be dead within the next few years. It was a brutal power move, and effective. It was timed perfectly, mid pregnancy, and that pregnancy and the allegations of racism and suicidal thoughts means that very few people will even dare to question their view of events. They have shown the Royal Family that they must be appeased at all costs. And anyone who denies them anything will be punished without restraint.

I’m sure that the family will meet them with perfect civility at Philip’s funeral, and at all other ceremonial events. Gifts will be exchanged and cash will flow to California from Clarence House. Who will dare disappoint them?

I’m also certain that times will change though. As Williams’ kids grow into adulthood, and Harry and Meghan age, it is likely that they will lose public attention. Harry will undoubtedly remain a manchild, and will fuck up, as he has through his life. Will the public really be interested in his podcasts for the next 30 years? What other skills does he have? Maybe he could present Jeopardy?

He and his wife will fade away, and although they have inflicted serious damage, the monarchy will move on.

Meghan acts true to her sign. Say what you will but this sounds exactly like her: Leo born in a Rooster year.

"Like their animal namesake, Peacocks live to be admired. They may feign modesty from time to time, but they are very aware that they have an uncanny magnetism that attracts both attention and praise. Members of this sign like to look good, feel good, and be on top. They consider themselves winners in all they do and because of this, they are usually right. To witness a Peacock doing what they do best is to witness confidence personified. They truly believe that they deserve all of the attention and praise they get, and have a very hard time understanding the occasions where they don’t get it.

The biggest weakness of this sign is that they rely heavily on others to fulfill their emotional needs. Peacocks have a deep-seeded need to be proven right all the time. They also need to be loved, admired, and praised. While most people can go through life with occasional reminders of respect and admiration by others, Peacocks cannot. They need to be reminded on a regular basis that they are special, and as big as their egos may be, they cannot rely on their self-worth alone to fill this need. For such a strong, independent sign, Peacocks can be brought down in the simplest way - by being ignored."

R133 - Good post. And I agree with the last bit about time moving on.

That said, I'm not sure what there's left to "appease" Meghan and Harry with: money? suddenly remember to make Archie an HRH? buy them a country home bigger than Anmer Hall?

I really don't think the Queen knows what she's doing any longer. The statement just released by the Palace on behalf of the Queen is weak, evasive, and yet again repeats the "remain much loved" canard that anyone with an IQ over 80 can see is complete and total bullshit. I don't know why she's doing this. It isn't helping her or the monarchy.

She's taken the "race card" bait and Meghan's bullying claims will fade beside it, which was probably one reason for dropping it in the interview.

The Harkles are likely downing Dom Perignon with friends and high-fiving each other and putting the BRF on the run, despite the fact that Meghan and Harry, like every other member of the family, know that Archie wasn't entitled to an HRH, whilst William's kids were given them on a longstanding exception for the kids in the direct line. It was never about colour whatsoever, that issue.

As for the Palace cutting Harry off financially - for fuck's sake, he kicked the family in the teeth, threw his toys out of the pram and flounced out, and he was 36 years old with a $40 million trust fund. Does he know that most of the rest of us are out there supporting ourselves by our early or mid-twenties, not living off Papa and Gran?!

Their sense of entitlement is breathtaking.

I say this has been woefully mishandled by the Palace. They should have gotten tough much earlier on, taken the titles and HRH when the two sullen ingrates bailed, and started gathering every last bit of info on Meghan MI5 could get its hands on.

If William had been in charge, that statement would never have been released.

This woman no longer has the strength to lead.

The Queen began to "stand back" from running the Firm years ago. She's still in charge but defers to Charles in many things.

r161, the Queen absolutely DID give approval--even OFFICIAL approval, since she drew up papers with her Prime Minister at the time Anthony Eden-- for Margaret to marry Townsend, despite what "The Crown" says:

[quote] Papers released in 2004 to the National Archives... show that the Queen and Eden (who had been divorced and remarried himself) planned to amend the 1772 Act. Margaret would have been able to marry Townsend by removing her and any children from the marriage from the line of succession, and thus the Queen's permission would no longer be necessary. Margaret would be allowed to keep her royal title and her allowance, stay in the country, and even continue with her public duties. Eden described the Queen's attitude in a letter on the subject to the Commonwealth prime ministers as "Her Majesty would not wish to stand in the way of her sister's happiness". Eden himself was sympathetic; "Exclusion from the Succession would not entail any other change in Princess Margaret's position as a member of the Royal Family", he wrote.

It was Margaret herself who chose in the end not to marry Townsend.

I love how the stans portray the Sussexes as these brave young innocents who are going to carve out a brilliant future in America, when in reality they are already middle-aged and their star power is dimming fast. In 10 years, maybe less, nobody will give a shit about these two.

The bit about the 'private ceremony just for us' was so insulting. You know Meghan was the one who pushed for the big wedding, the big veil, the carriage ride. If they'd wanted a nice little wedding without the big hullabaloo of course they could have had it. The family was willing to let her go on acting, for Chrissakes. She ASKED to be a working royal and she ASKED for the big wedding. And threw tantrums over scented candles and tiaras and vegan food that tasted too delicious.

R177 - Don't count the Windsors out too soon. That mistake has been made before. If Charles steps aside for William (and I don't want to get into another argument about how it can't, can't, can't be done - it can, yes it would be complicated, but if Charles, the Queen, Parliament, and the CW agree, it gets done), William will be closer than anyone supposes now.

No, it's not the Plantagenets but one reason it continues to fascinate is precisely because the same issues that arose amongst Henry II's sons, and then the Wars of the Roses a couple of centuries later, and then in the early 19th century when the race to see whose baby would be born first and get the throne (Victoria emerged, er, victorious), the Heir and Spare battle seems never to end. Only the axes, spears, broadswords, and crossbows disappear.

I agree it's doubtful that "bans" of the sort referred to would be necessary. They wouldn't be needed, anyway. No one except the Queen is buying this "family unity" bullshit.

The tide is running against the Sussexes in Britain, and Britain is all that matters to the monarchy. Already, the DM is posting (probably thanks to leaks from the Palace) the "contradictions" in so much of what those two spewed in their quest for vengeance, and asking whether Oprah or CBS are going to investigate the truth behind what they allowed out?

William is known to have a temper, but he appears to be controlling it quite superbly in public, anyway, right now. That engagement a couple of days ago was planned as a solo one for Kate; it was changed to a pair event so that William could protect his wife from the direct, rude questions that, indeed, were thrown out at the couple. I respect him for that.

The media "experts" are citing William answering not one, but two such personal questions, which the royals usually ignore, as an indication of 1) how angry William is, 2) that he won't be shut up as easily as his father, and 3) he's planning a full-scale battle with M&M, which they will lose in the UK.

They will also lose financially. My guess is that Charles, who is a very wealthy man personally, will cut Harry and his children out of anything in his estate. Apart from taking care of Camilla and bequests to charities and the like, William will yet again get the lion's share, if not everything.

The engine that drives the Sussexes is anger, narcissism, victimhood, and spite, and it's impossible to hide. It comes off them like smoke. Their studied aura is kindness, compassion, and concern, but they cannot conceal their vicious desire to hurt, damage, if not ruin, those they think didn't give them enough. And if that takes lying, they're fine with that.

It really isn't possible to hide that kind of bone-deep persona. Writing a few checques to charities (partnering, as they call it), syrupy podcasts, and what are increasingly silly personal photographs can't hide their essential anger. Meghan's is tied to ambition, and Harry's closely guarded but titanic rage is tied to Oedipal and sibling shit.

William lost his mother, too. He is only two years older than Harry. And, yet, William today seems as if he is a generation ahead of his brother in maturity.

R165, William is going to be king and head of state. His son will be king, his eldest grandchild will be monarch. Harry is nothing. Harry could have done some good things, but he chose not to. But Harry will never be more than William.

I should add re the stats on whose wedding stacked up on live television viewing, in Britain more people tuned into the Cambridge wedding; in America, more people tuned in to the Sussex wedding, but the difference in America was only a few million. The bride, of course, was American.

But so far, no wedding, NONE, has beaten the Wales wedding in 1981 - even without social media and streaming, the Wales wedding pulled in 750 million people live TV on the day, around the globe.

But in Britain, even the Wessex wedding pulled in more than the Sussex wedding did.

They claim up to $100 million but more likely in the $2 million ballpark. And it's probably contingent on the success of their programming. Businesses don't just give you millions of dollars because you're famous. Meghan and Harry don't quite understand that. Still I think that the deal is cover for Charles to funnel them money.

Here's the "Behavior Panel" analyzing (body language) the Oprah interview. All 4 panelists are Caucasian men and I don't think they always get it right. E.g., in another video, I saw them analyze an attractive women who was "crying" with no tears and they didn't even notice she had no tears.

The guy on the lower left is usually pretty "nice," but he's pretty dismissive of H & M. The guy on the lower right is British, but doesn't really offer extra insight.

Especially when that declaration was utter horseshit. It was reported at the time they would be supported for a year while they worked out their life in LA, and the article in the Mail says that this was carried out: Harry was given a large lump sum payment and promised more if he needed it. Which was more than he probably deserved, given that he quit his job and left the country that had supported him since he first drew breath.

At the end of the video at R187, the guys give their view as to who in the RF made the statement about skin color. They think it was either Charles or William, and the weight of the evidence that they discuss says that it is Charles. What "evidence"? When Harry starts to answer Oprah's question, he makes a little "ha-ha-ha" deflection sound, something Charles often does, and he drops his California mannerisms. His British accent thickens, and he describes the encounter with a prissy upper-class tone (it was "awkward and a bit shocking"). He's thinking of, and mimicking, Charles.

This is consistent with the Sussexes' attempt to copy Diana's Panorama interview: they're threatening to show that Charles is "unfit" to be King. Unless, of course, he absolves himself by giving them more money.

by Anonymousreply 19203/13/2021

They should be praying that Charles doesn't step aside for William. Charles still has a father's guilt and a father's instincts, and he might forgive Harry in time and open the royal wallet. It's looking more and more like King William V will never do that, particularly if Harry is still married to Meghan.

R192 it really does seem like a shakedown attempt, especially with them immediately making clear it wasn’t the Queen or Phillip. No point in doing that except to narrow the focus to the two next in line to the crown.

Harry had better hope Charles lives as long as the Queen has, because if William takes the throne in the next decade he’s not going to handle his brother with a soft touch

by Anonymousreply 19503/13/2021

I think the interview was a quid pro quo for Oprah agreeing to co-produce with them on other projects. Otherwise, I don’t think Oprah would waste her time working with them. Essentially both sides sold something and won something. Oprah won the first interview with the happy couple, and paid for it by agreeing to guide Harry through on of his dumb TV projects, and the Sussexes won credibility from the chance to co-produce with Oprah, but had to pay for it with the only celebrity currency they have of any value: gossip about the Royal Family.

The BRF never does anything quickly. No doubt the ultimate goal is a very streamlined royal family, whittled down over a couple of generations. THAT was the purpose in not making Archie or his sister HRH Prince/Princess. Quite likely, none of Charlotte's nor Louis' children will get those titles either. I wouldn't be at all surprised if Charles issued new letters patent to that effect during his reign: Only the direct heir and the oldest child of the heir or heir's heir will be Prince/Princess HRH.

But now it's all been called into question because Meghan is butthurt over her kids not getting titles, even though the lack of a title bestows far more freedom.

Just as their was to catch Meghan and Harry seemingly completely ALONE in that veteran's cemetery around Remembrance Day - except for a photographer!!!

I was quite interested in today's two DM storied: William has been in "contact" with his brother, and Charles despite his "profound" hurt is going to try to heal the "unbridgeable" rift over the next few weeks.

IF the stories are true (and I wouldn't assume that on any account), I cannot figure out if the BRF are very clever or very blinkered. On the one hand, the stories raise some alarm bells about the BRF's ability to accept that Harry is 1) married to a vindictive sociopath who is never going to be anything but a threat to them, and 2) if they couldn't do anything about Harry's rage and petulance over the last 20 years, what makes Charles think he can change things over "the next few weeks"?

On the other hand, it's also true that one of Meghan's primary aims in bailing so quickly was to sever Harry's relationships with his blood family, leaving him entirely under her control and influence, and entirely dependent on her for love, affection, and connection.

So, any "healing of rifts" that leaves the path back to the BRF open to Harry is a threat, by her lights, to Meghan's power here. In that sense, the moves might make sense.

I can also hang with a deliberately curated image of a forgiving, loving family trying to hold itself together.

What I can't hang with is that the BRF really are behind the scenes still totally in denial about what these two did to them a week ago - what it means, what it says about Harry and Meghan, and how allowing Meghan, especially, back in the fold is like Red Riding Hood inviting the Wolf home for dinner (and, remember, in the fable, Gran WAS dinner - perhaps someone should remind HM of the story).

I also note that the announcement of TQ calling in an external law firm to carry out the probe into the bullying accusations came right on the heels of Gayle King threatening the BRF with Meghan's "receipts" about "racism" . . .

We have receipts, too, says the Queen pleasantly, and they won't do Meghan any favours when they're finally leaked.

So perhaps the BRF aren't backing down but playing it cool.

I do love how Meghan "demanded" to see the emails and texts - this isn't a trial where exhibits and witness lists and evidence are exchanged. So far as I know, Meghan has no right to that material whatsoever. In these sorts of investigations, it is the staff who are expected to be protected.

Meghan has also shown she cannot be trusted with such material, anyway. Those staffers would be getting death threats 24 hours later by Meghan's devoted humanitarian stans, as Meghan leaks their names through one of he PR pals.

This time, Megsy dear, you're going to be on the receiving end. And 5RB Chambers and/or Schillings won't be able to help you do an end run around the truth.

After M revealed that the tabloid press and the Firm have an agreement and that the palace holds holiday parties and pays for holidays parties for the tabloids you still are holding firm on absolving Willy and Kate of wrongdoing? It was either them or Andrew with the help of Sarah and any dirt she can dig up.

Harry was lucky to get out, having the tabloids looking over your shoulder waiting for you to do something they can blackmail you for sounds like a horrible way to live life. It also sounds a lot like what Andrew was already living by being associated with Epstein. I wonder how those two things (the royal tabloid agreement and Epstein) could be related. Hmmmmmmm.

If anyone was to walk into the bathroom after The Queen took a massive dump, they’d find the room would not smell like perfume or bakery fresh cinnamon roles.

This whole situation should remind people the BRF are no different than most families at the end of the day. My own mother has done things that qualify as unforgivable, but we always reconcile because family is family. I know it makes for a good soap opera, but William and Charles won’t remain estranged from Harry. Meghan’s pretty valuable in that regard...any untoward behavior exhibited by Harry can be attributed to his “manipulative wife.” (even though I think there’s enough blame to go around)

r261 why would you believe anything in the UK press? The press and royal family have a deal, the press gets access for stories favoring whatever story line the royals want. They can write anything they want to, and they do. They spin the stories however they want as long as the royals give them access and you still choose to believe what they write?

great article r205

[quote]To dragoon an entire cohort of “minor royals” to this cause was always going to be unfair to the point of cruelty. Most European monarchs seem desperate to help their children live normal lives. They do not force them – and pay them – to be daily in the public eye as colonel of this regiment and patron of that charity. British royals are like Louis XIV’s aristocrats, locked up in Versailles, enduring an exquisite form of torture.

[quote]Prince Charles is known to want a “slimmed down” royal family. That is insufficient. He should dispense with it altogether. He should dismantle it as an official entity of state. He should guard his son and heir and tell the rest that, after a painful transition, they are on their own. They can do anything they like. The British constitution has no role for this latter-day Stuart retinue of courtiers. If monarchy is to survive at all, as an unobjectionable symbol of statehood, it should concentrate all its efforts on one goal: being boring.

It is cruel to just kick royal members out if you had not prepared or warned them for that eventual day. Unless you give them the funds to live on so they can make some kind of business or new start for themselves, how are they to generate income? This is what Harry faced, he wanted a military career, they told him no. He didn't study a profession at university, so he's very lucky, if this is what Charles is going to do, to have taken the step on his own with a wife who is ready and willing to make a new start with him.

Sure seemed to be the goal, eh? Although mb in their delusions they thought that performance would trigger titles and funds to be showered on them. Who knows? They are both minimally connected to reality.

I think the marriage will officially be on the rocks within the year unless the biz deals really take off. She needs to get out while he still has some $ to go after. They can't afford the house now but he is gonna be paying for it for a LONG time.

Harry genuinely does not seem to have come to terms with the reality that his brother will be King of England one day and he will not. He does not seem to have set himself up for a career or any typical adult life. Once he is Markled, then what? It is a hereditary monarchy, this has always been the reality. Even his wingman Skippy grew up and settled down, Harry continues to tantrum and pout like an emotionally dysregulated child.

Is Markus the hand behind it all, as he seemed to be at Invictus in Toronto? Megs has to be strategizing with someone and it is not Dim. It seems long ago that the BRF shut down the Sussex Royale insta but pretty sure I recall merching for Soho House branded items. Seems likely that we will see more of that, esp if he IS staying with them. She has more or less cut ties with JM even though she left a young baby with JM while she travelled.

R265 - Walter Bagehot, who wrote the book on how to run a successful constitutional monarchy, said that a royal marriage is simply the princely edition of a universal fact.

The obverse is true, as well: royal family dysfunction is simply the princely edition of another universal fact.

The problem for the Windsors is that the entire world knows, rather than just the neighbours.

No one really supposes that the Queen's doesn't stink. The real point is that whether or not it does isn't relevant to why she commands the aura that she does.

Meghan and Harry are second rank players who wanted to be first rank players. But they haven't got the aura, they never will. They may have lots of money in time, but what they wanted underneath it all, and they probably aren't even honest with themselves about that, is something they can never have: the Queen's aura, glittering with historic jewels, weekly meetings with the PM, the opening of Parliament, cloaked in tradition, respected . . .

It's not an accident that they tried to obtain, as their private home, living in Windsor Castle. One can just imagine Meghan imagining herself striding the turrets and looking up that long driveway and thinking, ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh . . .

The Queen, naturally, said No Fucking Way. But you can have Frogmore Cottage a half mile away. I'll wave to you from the parapet of a morning . . .

And that's the paradigm of the thing gnawing at the Sussex's souls: Meghan wanted Windsor Castle, not Frogmore Cottage. She wants what the Queen has but she can never have it.

She can have the Queen's grandson, and some of the Queen's money, and the Queen's last name, and the ducal title the Queen have her hubby -

But she's not the Queen's class and she knows it, and that's why Meghan will never have Windsor Castle.

And most galling of all, one day, William and Kate WILL be living in Windsor Castle.

Meghan is eaten up with one sort of rage, and Harry with another.

Together they make what I think the "Fantastic Beasts" mythology calls an "obscurus": a parasite composed of malign shadow generated by rage and destroying everything around in its way.

No wonder Meghan hated Frogmore Cottage.

R318, a lot of the stories are from newspapers who cite "sources". Sure, you can argue that "sources" could mean made-up but if you understand the context of the media, the British and even Australian tabloids, you can easily begin to tell which stories are true, even if perhaps exaggerated, and which pure speculation.

The pure speculation ones are obvious, as they say things like "Harry and Meghan have been house-hunting in Hollywood. They might move into a house like this, based on other houses in this area." The ones that are based in truth usually give hard information such as places, events, dates, quotes, narrative accounts - the kinds of things that, if they were false you can bet that the paper would be sued for libel for. For example, the abuse allegations. There are enough stories of different incidents, with enough hard information, for it to be safe to conclude that Meghan is a bitchy type who has an inflated sense of her own importance and is abusive towards staff and perhaps other people (e.g. Kate, Charlotte).

We even have photos at events which could be interpreted in this way, especially since she wasn't aware the camera was on her. Now we also have an investigation into the allegations that she was abusive to Palace staff. The idea that she could also have taken clandestine photos of Charles' living quarters and William's kids is not far-fetched within this context and fits with what we've seen of her personality and her whole approach to the monarchy.

R318 - Your basic point is fairly taken, but the old adage about smoke/fire also has, as they say, "legs". Reports of Meghan's and Harry's behaviour were not entirely without receipts. The Tiaragate issue was mentioned in a respectable biography of Charles on h is 70th birthday, as was the Meghan Screaming At The Wedding Banquet Chef story. And in fact the reprehensible incident of the other Tiaragate moment was contained in that ridiculous book that the two of them colluded in, Finding Freedom. They made themselves look like the victim of the Queen's dresser - a working-class Scouse, by the way - and one of the Queen's closest confidantes. Why? Because they showed up unannounced, with no appointment, demanding that Ms Kelly drop whatever she was doing, pull the tiara out of the vault so Meghan could try it on. When Ms Kelly refused and asked them to make an appointment as this involved going to the vaults, signing the piece out, etc., etc., Harry hit the ceiling, called his grandmother, and demanded that she "make this happen for my future wife!"

Can anyone imagine William and Kate doing the same thing?! Kate got herself a plastic tiara to practice with.

Under Harry's Hail Fellow Well Met Just Call Me Harry is a full-blown complement of anger, jealousy, resentment, and self-entitlement that his bride not only also shared, but used to hook him.

Everyone knew that the Sussexes collaborated with Omid Scobie, Meghan's universally acknowledged mouthpiece, and its primary author, on that book. Just a glance through it would tell you everything you need to know about who Meghan and Harry are.

Leaks are made through PR staff and other "sources" that media outlets commonly have inside those staff. I wouldn't believe all of them reflexively, but there is enough smoke out there to give rise to assumptions of fire.

It is doubtful that Melissa Touabti would have resigned the moment she returned from that first tour if she hadn't seen and gone through enough to persuade her to give up a plum job. The press release the Palace put out praising her to skies, was undoubtedly in return for an iron-clad NDA to stop Touabti from talking about what she'd seen and heard.

As some of the "men in suits" that Meghan and Harry are always accusing of "not protecting" them glumly said, "It's hard to protect from stories that are, in fact, true."

As it is, the Palace staff covered up as much as it could, and threw the plebs to the wolves in service to Harry and his bitch of a wife.

Yes, fun's fun, but . . . but it's really not all hot air.

by Anonymousreply 33003/15/2021

R323 - Not at all re the Admiralty House incident. If you google it, you'll find quite a few stories on it. The initial leak was by the wife of someone whose husband worked there. In addition to the tea throwing incident, reports were that Meghan was furious at getting only a wing of the place rather than the whole of it to stay in, and that she incessantly screamed at her husband using extensive profanity that could be heard through closed doors. The Governor General, who witnessed some of Meghan's behaviour toward staff, did exactly what Jobson's biography of Charles at 70 said the Queen had had to do when Meghan screamed at the wedding chef re including egg in one of the vegetarian dishes, when what he'd done is find a very good egg substitute) - taking Meghan aside and saying, "We don't talk to people like that here."

You put that together with how they threw Angela Kelly, the Queen's dresser, under the bus in "Finding Freedom", the bullying reports, the exits of 9 staff members in a short time (including Jason Knauf), and Harry's now legendary, "What Meghan wants, Meghan gets!" mantra (which was also in Jobaon's biography of Charles), and a persuasive picture emerged of a predatory, mean, vindictive, self-entitled bitch now passing herself off as a martyred saint.

The Queen wouldn't take their bratty calls and Bad Dad Charles either. He cut off the slush funds and told them to pay their own way. The wouldn't let Meghz call UBER ffs!! Those chauffeured Range Rovers are so uncomfortable sometimes, chrissakes.

Harry will go to the unveiling, Meghan will not, pleading her belly. Harry will stay for as short a time as possible. He and William will stand gravely together and not exchange an unnecessary word.

Meghan had it hard:

-she could not talk candidly.

-when she did talk about how hard it was people mocked her.

-negative press through a racial lens.

-her children not being given titles.

- designing her home, and having the public furious she spent funds ( but paying the queen and Charles and Camilla 60 bajillion a year is ok. Hmm, I wonder why?)

-making fun of how she held her baby.

-she is an actress who likes attention, calling her a narcissist for soaking up the limelight.

-her unpleasant estrangement with her God awful, embarrassing family members being made public.

-having to be the whipping boy to Kate's shadow.

I think it's very interesting how isolated Meghan is from her entire family (except her mother), and how she in turn has convinced Harry to isolate himself from his entire family. That is the classic pattern of an abuser. She is keeping him from his brother and father and grandmother, the only people he has ever loved.

R35 0 -Legally, her kid wasn't entitled to a title. William's kids were now the direct line: only great-grandchildren in the direct line get the HRHs. Harry's known this all his life. He let her sit there and lie about it to gullible Americans.

The Queen isn't paid bajillions - it's actually less than "bajillions" and it's not personally and it's not for nothing - she's the nation's Head of State and does lots of shit the government doesn't want to do, and just about everything is in her name. Meghan was a second rank player given an easy life, a free home on the taxpayers' backs and receiving a huge dress allowance from her hubby's rich Papa, after starting out life as a Suitcase Girl on Deal or No Deal.

She does look awkward holding that kid.

Her dress sense WAS awful most of the time, mostly because she insisted on keeping freebies (against policy because it makes it look like the royals are taking advantage of their position) so they weren't tailored to her and didn't fit well.

She only married him for status and fame, not love, so naturally when the going got a bit rough, she bailed. She's thin-skinned and self-entitled.

Frogmore Cottage was a Grade II listed Georgian building one one of the most beautiful private estates in England; the Sussexes were invited to make selection from the Queen's personal art collection, one of the finest in the world, to hang on the walls of their fucking FIVE-BEDROOM home, renovated on someone else's back.

Charles has been floating them for three years to the tune of several million a year.

Nothing is EVER enough for Meghan or Harry.

Press coverage on only a couple of occasions was through a racial lens.

Was Fergies coverage through a racial lens? Here's some sample of how she was personally crucified by the tabloids, especially with body shaming in comparison with tall, svelte, photogenic, blonde, blue-eyed Diana:

The Duchess of Pork

Her Royal Thighness

Frock Horror! (The huge headline on her first outing to Ascot as Andrew's fiancee)

Freebie Fergie

And lastly, the infamous half-naked toe-sucking photos, which the Mail on Sunday held until it new she was up at Balmoral with the children visiting Andrew. They were separated at the time and she was staying on the estate so he could see the kids, and the MoS published the photos THAT morning. She was dressed and out the door back to London with a face like death warmed over within an hour. The photos were splashed all over the world: Paris Match, HOLA, The SUN, The MIRROR - everywhere.

Who wouldn't want to go back to Cali? Well, anyone without any backbone, humour, ability to roll with the punches and see it out, and for whom really a great deal was never enough, and who hated coming second to a future queen, despite knowing full well when she married in that it was a hereditary monarchy.

R333 - Agree except the bit about his fortune. She can't take half of anything he had before the marriage, only what came in after the marriage. Of course, who knows how much of his trust fund will be left by then - especially if he used it as a down payment on the house.

It's interesting how the parallels between H&M mirror what happened when Edward bailed with Wallis. (He also preferred a life of cafe society to doing the sludge work required of the Sovereign).

Edward got a handsome financial settlement from his brother, the new King George VI, upon abdicating, including an allowance in addition to the lump sum payment, which amounted to millions in today's currencies.

But Edward for months after he left kept calling his brother and haranguing him for more money (not unlikely at Wallis's urging). Finally, the King cut off all further calls from his brother.

Sound familiar?

That's what's so interesting about this whole saga: the parallels between H&M and Edward-Wallis; the other parallels between Meghan and Diana, i.e., the narcissism, the saintly outer face and the vengeful, screeching inner harridan; the fury over titles, only in the earlier case it was the wife who was denied, and in current case, it's the kids; the devastating interview that wounded but didn't kill, and impacted negatively in the end . . .

I imagine the Queen at one and the same time is anxious to avoid the "mistakes" of the Edward/Wallis episode, hence not taking their HRHs and titles at the outset (and she probably never will, although they might surrender them voluntarily for a large settlement. On the other hand, she can't be seen to be giving in to blackmail by giving the 7th and 8th in the adjacent line HRHs. On that score . . .

Note that today it is reported that H&M finally stopped using the Sussex Royal coronet insignia at the top of their stationery, replacing it with the Archewell logo.

One wonders if this is a signal of sorts.

We know which side is the lying, disingenuous famewhore. It’s the side that goes to whisper in friendly media’s ears every time their family talks to them. And then the famewhores wonder why their family don’t like to talk to them. Because the thirsty couple’s family feels betrayed every time their (deliberately misrepresented) private interactions get into the news, they stop wanting to have anything to do with them. The grifting pair then pretends to feel aggrieved for the diss, when it was simply a self-fulfilling or actuated conclusion.

I cannot believe they were stupid enough to use King to leak information about private family conversations.

Do they not realise how this looks? Not just to the public, but to members of the family who could justifiably stop all communication because Meghan and Harry are still using the press to try to blackmail them into giving them the things they want?!

No one in the family has spoken to Meghan yet?! No! You don't say! And why the fuck would they after the bitch trashed the institution, other family members, the country, and lied about why her son didn't get an HRH?

If that bitch were on fire, no one in that family would spit on her to put it out, no matter how many times the Queen (rather unwisely, I think) keeps lamely insisting they're all still much loved members of the family.

Why should they talk to her? It's Harry who is their son, brother, and grandson, not Meghan. It's Harry who keeps calling for money. It's Harry who has the title, not Meghan: she only has it as a courtesy. It's Harry's trust fund, not Meghan's.

It's Harry who sat there and let his wife lie about why his kid didn't get an HRH, about not being supported financially by the family after he kicked them in the teeth, and with whom all the family negotiations took place.

Why the fuck would anyone in the family bother to talk to that lying viper? What for?!

The truth is, it's only Harry who matters to them. It's only the relationship with Harry that they want to see if they can save, but they're clearly not willing to save it at any price.

They don't want a relationship with Meghan and if they never have to stand in the same room with her again, it would be too soon.

The British public has been polled several times the past week and support for the monarchy is solid, even after all the crap and fallout. The Sussexes ratings have plummeted into the all time high negative range. Say again who needs to improve their image?

The "world" doesn't mean squat to the BRF. Only the citizenry of the UK who vote to keep the monarch as Head of State. They aren't celebrities or Kardashians like Harry and Meghan, their 'ratings" aren't based on cheap pr and Q ratings.

We know he is capable of great anger and we also know just how very vengeful he is. All of his anger and vengeance is focused on William at the moment. She had better pray he doesn't focus it on her. Even William never pretended to love him only to make a fool of him and burn his very life down. He would have nothing to lose. She has seen to that. No friends to help him deal a massive and humiliating betrayal in a healthy way. No family. Sometimes karma turns around and bitch slaps you to the ground.

Basically, the Gayle King stunt not only violated exactly the familial privacy boundaries that Meghan just sued the Mail about, it also implicitly suggests that the Sussexes are blackmailing Britain's Head of State if she doesn't give them what they want, because only TQ has the power to granr what they want or not.

I really am dumbfounded at this latest move, not because I don't think Meghan is capable of anything, but because it makes the Sussexes look so bad.

What the fuck were they thinking?!

The only thing I can come up with is that the one thing Meghan will move Heaven and earth to prevent is the possibility of Harry continuing to maintain a relationship with his family. With a move like this,baha may figure she's cut off all communication and that William and Charles will simply stop trying.

I don't think the grim look on William's face has anything to do with what Meghan's "documents" show. The RF by all odds had plenty on her.

I think it's because William knows that the battle for Harry's soul is lost.

My God, leaking private delicate conversations between Harry and his father and brother! It's not as if the DM leaked it, either.

I think they want something like the 17-million-pound payment Diana got when she and Charles divorced. That would be nearly 28 million pounds in today's money, or about 39 million dollars. What they don't seem to understand is that Diana and Charles were dissolving a marriage and that the family felt obligated to support the mother of the heir and spare. But even Diana didn't get everything she wanted (her HRH).

This isn't a divorce so much as a resignation. When you leave a job you might get severance, and it sounds like the Sussexes already got that. They aren't entitled to anything more, especially not the vast sums of money and elevated roles (HRH for them in America, Prince/Princess/HRH for Archie and his sister, plum Royal duties when they feel like it) they feel they deserve.

It's the same argument they had over the tiara blown-up large. They make unreasonable demands, and the Queen calmly and consistently informs them that they must take what she chooses to give and cannot expect anything more.

by Anonymousreply 37603/16/2021

R362 Of course it was unfair. That was my point in bringing it up, as Meghan keeps whingeing about how much worse she had it than anybody else.

Look, Fergie was stupid to expose herself like that whilst still married to Andrew even if separated. It was typical of the kind of fecklessness that doomed her ad a royal but also garnered her a certain affection.

And fair play to him, Andrew defended her saying that as a separated woman she had a right to a life. It wasn't an effective defence but he tried.

In my opinion no one got treated more harshly than Fergie.

Whether he was kissing or sucking her toes doesn't matter. The real point is that they ran the.story on the Sunday morning they knew she was up at Balmoral.

Andrew is reported to have seen the.morning papers first and yelled, "OH MY GOD!!!!

She is the kids were packed and in their way to Aberdeen airport in an hour.

by Anonymousreply 37703/16/2021

Weirdly, though Fergie got the worst treatment and lived the most hardscrabble life afterwards, she's survived. She's alive and healthy, her daughters are still princesses and both happily married, and she's supported by the family and tacitly accepted. Meanwhile, her ex-husband is a pariah and her ex-rival has been cold in the grave at Althorp for nearly 25 years. Once Philip is dead, Fergie might even come into the light a bit further.

Perhaps she was right to only ask for the Queen's friendship during the divorce, after all.

Doria has a ASW, it means she has to work under another licensed mental health professional such as a LCSW or a psychologist. An ASW has to complete 3000 hours of clinical work under the supervision of LCSW before you can take the LCSW exam.

by Anonymousreply 40303/17/2021

Meghan and Harry are playing a dangerous, high-stakes game. This interview, like "Finding Freedom", is part of a long-cherished campaign to parlay a comfortable but unexciting second-rank royal life into a powerful, A-List, celebrity one. Self-promotion is really Meghan's only talent.

She probably knwq from the moment she and Harry became a going concern that her best bet was to use the royal family to set up a global image and then turn it into martyred WoC as she left as soon as she could to become a power in the entertainment or political arenas. But on her own, she just isn't interesting enough and she knew it.

The Oprah interview was an escalation in the campaign and had nothing to do with Meghan finding her "voice" or her "truth".

But the BRF isn't rolling over for her. The staff abuse thorn is sticking in Meghan's side and could prove to discredit her in a way she can't afford. These allegations were something Meghan didn't expect, because many of those people were paid off and/or signed NDAs. But those NDAs can be lifted by the people who initially issued them.

Her aim now is to get that investigation shut down or discredited. Hence, threatening the royal family with "documents" to prove "everything she said" on that interview. I doubt she's angling for HRHs for the kids or a major financial settlement. Those might be enjoyable or convenient, but that's not what she needs right now: what she needs is vindication, and she knows if that investigation goes forward and produces a persuasive report, Meghan will be seriously damaged.

That's what is being referred to in the "concern that negative stories are still being leaked to the press about her [by the Palace]".

The Gayle King strike is an attempt to get that investigation shut down. Meghan knows she has no legal path to shutting it down or her lawyers would have sent off a letter already. The Sussexes probably knew they'd be slammed for breaching family privacy, but are willing to trade off what they see as minor criticism for the chance to get that investigation shut down.

If the BRF have any brains, they'll stand firm and not make the mistake they made when Harry brought Meghan home: say YES for fear of the race issue. They should have said NO then and it would have been unpleasant but long over.

They should say NO now and move forward with the investigation. It's time to stop the farce about much loved blackmailers.

If it's true that Meg bullied Charlotte even 1/4 as badly as has been reported, it's proof that Harry never felt close to his brother's kids. A man who loved a niece or nephew would not let his fiance bully them. It might even cause him to rethink the engagement. I wouldn't be at all surprised if Harry resented George, Charlotte, and Louis because they shoved him much further down the line of succession and will one day be the focus of public attention.

Has Harry ever been seen playing with the Cambridge children? Nothing springs to mind. I did hear a few years ago that Harry was a bit of a drunk, so William and/or Catherine kept him away from George, Charlotte and Louis, but I doubt there's much, if any, truth to that story.

R410, the vid of him knocking the little boys' heads together was recently reposted on one of these threads in the past week. The mask slipped and the gap between the image crafted for him and reality was a bit jarring. Reminded me of Tom Cruise when he fired his publicist and all of a sudden the crazy was on display. Harry seemed a bit manic that day as well, just off. Despite his "good with kids" image I do not recall ANY photos of him interacting with the Cambridge kids playfully. Even Charles has been seen playing not only with his own children but also with Camilla's grandchildren. Harry and Meg are really off in a profound way and seem to be foile a deux. It is creepy and disturbing, not as entertaining anymore.

R455 you’re either deliberately being obtuse or your brain cells haven’t fully recovered from your admission of past substance use. I’d guess William is more angry or exasperated than afraid. Afraid is usually associated with uncontrollable events in life. He can control this by not talking to Harry, but that’d mean breaking a familial bond. Even this would play into Harry’s “they’ve cut me off boo hoo I’m a victim” narrative. He’s in a difficult spot.

Second , you asked “is William a diplomat or not?” Then jumped to conclusions by stating he shouldn’t “say things he can’t morally defend”. What are these immoral things you knowingly speak of? Why should William act in the capacity of diplomat in his private interactions with family? He’s to have zero expectations of privacy because he’s born into royalty? Or is it because his dumbass brother wishes to broadcast and misrepresent every private interaction for famewhoring purposes?

This is rich coming from the Sussexes who pay lip service to privacy yet have their media mouthpieces on speed dial. They’re huge hypocrites and the more they run to Gayle , the more they lose credibility and sympathy.

R462 you mean the same VF that’s always kissing the Sussexes’ ass? Nice try with worried= afraid. I hope English isn’t your native language because that’s a fail. Worried= concerned, troubled, and upset. Afraid= petrified, scared, terrified, and fear. Fear/ afraid is a severe negative feeling and generally associated with something uncontrollable, more immediate, or with phobias. You have a fear of/ are afraid of snakes, for instance. Worried/ concerned is milder emotion and more long-term. You’re not worried about snakes, though you may worry about paying your bills on time each month.

But enough with semantics. You don’t need an intellectual understanding of linguistics to know that the Sussexes are hellbent on advancing their fame and wealth at all costs. To paraphrase Meghan in one of her more honest moments, if it means cutting off family, so be it.

Go by is past history. It is the most predictive factor in psychology and pattern of behavior. One side steadfastly plays the media while publicly cries about privacy. The same side also outrageously lies or lies via insinuation. The latter borders on extortion via threats of character assassination. The more they whisper in Gayle’s ears the more trashy they appear even to those who are sympathetic.

William, who holds the title of the Earl of Strathearn in Scotland, was supposed to participate in the General Assembly last year but it was canceled and streamed online in light of the pandemic. He is expected to make the opening and closing addresses for the event and report developments back to the Queen throughout the week.

The role of Lord High Commissioner is "to maintain the relationship between the State and the Church" and dates back to the 16th century, according to the royal family website.

Each year, the Queen appoints the role on the advice of the prime minister. She attended herself in 1969 and 2002. But other members of the royal family have also participated in years gone by, including all four of her children.

Love those Scottish titles, they sound so romantic

by Anonymousreply 50503/26/2021

All so unfortunate but with people like MeMe and with Harry under her sway, there really is no positive relationship possible, MeAgain does not have that as a goal.

Some day Harry may rue missing this time with his elderly grandparents and that Archie and his sister did not grow up with William and Zara's children.

I think it's misogyny.

Misogyny!

Sad but good to know who you can trust, esp in his position.

It's interesting comparing what's happened with Harry and William and what just happened in Jordan. A younger brother trying to discredit the older brother. Jordan's wannabe King is the son of a pushy American - a Meghan Markle.

That's actually a good comparison, Noor to Meghan. Lots of similarities there actually: wildly ambitious, American, outspoken, self-centered, obsessed with royal title and status for both themselves and their offspring. Inability to get along with the in-laws and stepkids (the latter in Noor's case). Eventual diminishment at court and semi-exile back to the States.

Add Wallis Simpson to that and Americans marrying royals are an issue. Princess Grace is the only one who stuck the landing till she fell off a mountain.

What are the odds an American will be allowed within a football field of any of the Cambridge children once they hit dating age?

by Anonymousreply 512Last Thursday at 5:21 PM

The Cambridge kids won't be vulnerable like Harry was. They'll come from a happy, intact family and will all be encouraged to get educations and have interests outside of Royal work. Given that both William and Kate are reasonably intelligent, the kids probably won't be so dim as Harry, either. Golddiggers will dig in vain.

R513 considering the last three generations have produced...troubled...spares, I can imagine there's at least some concern about Charlotte and Louis.

by Anonymousreply 514Last Friday at 3:33 PM

Margaret lost her father at a vulnerable age (18) and was never given any education or purpose in life other than being the spare. Andrew was spoiled rotten by her mother, who felt guilty for neglecting Charles and Anne when they were small due to her queenly duties. Harry lost his mother at an even more vulnerable age, and unfortunately married the unstable Spencer temperament and intellectual limitations. Unless William and Kate die in a fiery crash in the next few years, it's likely their children will be fine.

The best thing William and Kate could do--and likely will do--is to impress upon Charlotte and Louis the need to develop careers and lives of their own. They'll likely never inherit the throne and shouldn't spend their lives defining themselves by their brother's position and bewailing their lower positions. That's what really does the spare's head in.

*spoiled rotten by HIS mother

by Anonymousreply 516Last Friday at 3:38 PM

Margaret was spoiled by her father too, and she was 22 when he died. That said, the points about lack of education and having no purpose hold true.

You tell your family about the Oprah interveiw, your grandfather is hospitalized the next DAY and you then proceed to attempt blackmail on a global public scale. The grandfather, 99, remains hospitalized for 30 days as you continue to double down. His health continuing to fail cannot be a surprise to ANYONE. The stress the family was put under by Harry for even MORE dosh is inexcusable and cannot be forgotten.

Pretty troubling isn't it, r519. Apart from the general Sussex "crazy", you have to kind of wonder and worry, what kind of pressure these two have put themselves under (promises of more royal "true stories" to Oprah, promises of more royal "scoops", promises of this and that, and the other thing - all to keep the money bags interested in them, keep themselves relevant to employers, investors, PR people, media, film, business, political. The Sussexes landed in California with Big Hopes. The BRF was and is simply put, collateral damage.

I mean really - would you want to do business with these two? Stake your business, trust them, rely on them?

Oh to be a fly on the wall when Harry comes to the funeral, and has to face everyone.

by Anonymousreply 521Last Saturday at 9:02 AM

The timing, with regard to Phillip's hospitalization and decline cannot be missed, R521. That MeMeMe claimed, aggressively, through surrogates, that any talk of his serious illness and the interview was an attempt to "muzzle her" and that the interview had nothing to do with Phillip was compounded by their cold post to drive traffic to Archewell and the omission of his title, something MeMeMe is obsessed with. Kamala Harris got the title right and the SM post from Putin was warmer. Harry now has PR professing "guilt" that he did not see his grandfather again, that was a choice and look what he chose to do with that time instead.

by Anonymousreply 522Last Saturday at 9:10 AM

I'm probably reading way, way too much into Princess Anne's commentary yesterday on video about her father saying "things will never be the same." When I read that, I also thought - it had relevance to Harry. I just have this sinking feeling that Harry is kind of "done" as far as BRF is concerned. You'll never hear it, or never really see it but I think Harry is kind of done. It's like the storyline you often read in spy novels about the 'enemy is from within' type of thing. You just never dream in your wildest dreams that a member of the family will not only desecrate what you cherish, but actually actively scheme to destroy you, your reputation, your whole way of life and purpose in life.

That's some kind of enemy.

No, R520 and use em and leave em Megsy is going to find the pickings slim. This is sociopathic behavior, wealthy men will not have her.

by Anonymousreply 524Last Saturday at 9:11 AM

Exactly, R523. It is a shame. Markle was a weapon and her handlers are far more intelligent than HazBean but the viper was lurking, always.

By treating your wife and child in a racist manner?

by Anonymousreply 526Last Saturday at 10:40 AM

That is not what Harry said happened, R526. That is not even exactly what MeAgain said happened. And as for the UK press, the truly objectionable headline was written by an American for a US edition. Other headlines were mocked up and have proven false.

They told the family about the Oprah interview and Philip was hospitalized the next day. THAT fact is not in dispute.

by Anonymousreply 527Last Saturday at 11:16 AM

Can it r526, they were never treated in a racist manner. They were never treated in a bad manner in any way, period. FFS - Meghan was given everything she ever dreamed of and wanted by the Queen and the BRF when she arrived, with whipped cream and a cherry on top. She (and Harry) threw away every gilded opportunity they had handed to them, like selfish brats.

Until Harry coughs up the name of the senior royal who had the "conversation" with him - hell until he corrects several of the massively inaccurate statements he and Meghan made to Oprah - his account is entirely suspect.

by Anonymousreply 528Last Saturday at 3:35 PM

This will be tough for the BRF, esp as Philip was hospitalized the day after the family was told of the interview.

I can't believe the hypocrisy and how utterly strange it is to put your dying grandad through all of this nonsense and then a month later walk behind his coffin.

Dutch Girl in Italy, Milano, 2 hours ago

They said the Royal Family was using Prince Philip's illness as an excuse to silence them. People will remember that. At 99 it is difficult to recover from heart surgery and no doubt the family was aware of that. Queen Elizabeth had to deal with this silly pair and their selfish agenda while her husband of 73 years lay on his deathbed. People will remember that too.

Lucy, Chester, United Kingdom, 47 minutes ago

Respect would've been not trashing his family on global tv and making the effort to come visit his grandfather while he was still alive.

I will never speak to my oldest sister again, it has been about 12 years. I don't get why people think you just have to chum up because you are siblings, no you bloody don't,
