There is some great tea in this article. William (backed by the Queen) put a block on Meghan having access to Diana's jewels after she apparently wanted to 'annex' them and modify them to better suit her. Kate fell out with Meghan, after Meghan started screaming at Kate's staff and Kate told her off for it. The Queen apparently warned to Meghan to treat her staff better that the constant turn over for H&M was quote "ridiculous." And finally, Meghan has allegedly be told that if she comes back to the UK to visit she can expected to be booed.

Lady Colin Campbell‘s book about Diana was the best one so far. It had the wild stuff (which later turned out to be true) even before the Morton book I believe, and had a more objective ring of truth. Recommended read for Dianaphiles. I got her Harry/Meghan book from the library when it came out, and much of that is panning out as well. But yes, even if you choose not to believe any of it, her delivery is highly entertaining.

I am so curious about her castle, surely someone has attended a wedding there? It looks lovely.

My local library does not have her book, I have put in a request for them to order it. Lady C is becoming much more well known through the antics of the Suckses. Of course, she is also making $, all to the good.

by Anonymousreply 2304/27/2021

Generally, I think Wootton has decent sources. But this piece smells of rehash and good guesses. First of all. William has no power whatsoever over who wears HM's jewels. The Queen and only the Queen makes those decisions. Wootton peddling anything else is disappointing. If he has real sources, they'd have told him that.

It isn't beyond possible that the Queen disliked and distrusted Meghan from the start and refused to open the coffers. But again, it's easier to throw William under the bus, which Wootton I think unintentionally does here, than admit that the Queen wasn't such a pushover, after all, and showed her displeasure toward Meghan early on.

And I don't believe for a moment that Kaye "forgave" Harry anything. He forced her to have to appear gracious in front of the cameras, which she did. No one talking to Wootton knows how Kate feels, she's far too discreet for that.

The rest are old stories recycled, including Tiaragate, Meghan screaming at Kate's staff, and (tell us something we don't know!), William's rage at his brother for his disloyalty and lies about Kate.

Sorry, Dan: this is leftovers dressed up as Christmas dinner.

Prince Andrew was just replaced as Patron of the Royal Philharmonic by his father. The Prince of Wales is a better fit, anyway, and the orchestra is probably thrilled.

What this means is that the Queen is at work again. She often hands out patronages and birthday honours around this time. So, we may be hearing at last who will replace Harry and Meghan in their royal appointments.

I believe the article was referring to Diana's jewel's, not HM's. I would imagine that William would have some degree of sway over those jewels, as would Harry, so maybe HM was brought in as the voice of reason in the whole mess.

by Anonymousreply 3804/27/2021

I thought Harry inherited Diana’s entire estate for some reason, because William was going to eventually get the revenue from The Duchy of Cornwall, and then Lancaster. And that he would inherit all of the diamonds Queen Victoria, Mary, and Alexandra amassed, plus Balmoral and Sandringham and all the art work in HM’s private collection.

William wanted Meghan denied use of any pieces in the Royal Collection that Diana had previously worn or been associated with, such as the Cambridge Lovers Knot tiara that Kate often wears. Not sure what his reason was for this, as Meghan would have no jurisdiction over changing them or be able to revise them in any way.

Diana's personal jewelry was split between her sons. Kate has her large sapphire engagement ring as her own, and has worn some earrings Diana had. Meghan has her aquamarine ring, which she wore to her evening wedding reception in 2018. I believe she also wears Diana's Cartier tank watch. There are other pieces still to be seen on either woman.

The tiara Meghan wore to the wedding, while beautiful, was not of any particular historical importance. Neither was Eugenie's, for that matter. Eugenie's had been given to HM by Margaret Greville, and Meghan's was one of Queen Mary's lesser tiaras. Both had been squirreled away in the vaults for decades. No need to copy either, as even if they had been somehow lost or stolen, they wouldn't be worth much more than the value of the jewels. (Which makes them valuable, but not on a par with one of the family's historical pieces.)

The big tiara 'get' was Beatrice wearing the diamond fringe tiara worn by HM on her wedding day. That was even better than Kate's wedding tiara (Kate would be rewarded later with the Cambridge Lover's Knot). Beatrice was no doubt given this signal mark of favor, along with the other favor of wearing a dress belonging to HM, due to having a vastly scaled-down wedding during the pandemic. The optics turned out beautifully, as these second-hand items were a mark of love from her grandmother and also a thrifty response in light of the troubles the country was going through.

by Anonymousreply 5304/27/2021

Meghan's wedding tiara was beautiful, and I hope she enjoyed wearing it, as the only way she'll ever get another diamond tiara on her head is if she buys one herself.

Kate apparently wanted to wear flowers in her hair at her wedding but this was vetoed by HM as princesses wear tiaras.

She was presented with a selection of tiaras to choose from and she chose the smallest.

I like that.

by Anonymousreply 5504/27/2021

Kate is so fucking smart. No better way to impress the Queen than to suggest wearing a simple crown of flowers, give in gracefully when told to wear a tiara, and then pick the smallest of the offered tiaras. No wonder she's fit into the family so beautifully.

To the person going on about Prince Andrew. Andrew is the least popular member of the royal family and is universally loathed in the UK (far more than Meghan & rightfully so). The only reason he is even in the background is because of the Queen. As long as she is alive Andrew will live quietly at Windsor. The moment she's dead, Charles will be sending Andrew, Fergie and the daughters York packing. The only reason we talk about Meghan more is because she is (intentionally or not, but most likely the former) always in the press. When Andrew allowed himself to be interviewed shortly after Philip's death, there was anger (though muted because you know his father had just died) that he had the nerve to speak. It's a false equivalency comparing Andrew to Meghan really. If Andrew dared to get more press coverage people would be LIVID in a way not on a scale we've seen for Meghan. Andrew really is the bigger threat to the monarchy than Meghan.

by Anonymousreply 5804/27/2021

Charles is right to send the Yorks packing. Andrew is a disaster, Fergie is an embarrassment, and the York girls, while harmless themselves, are ancillary Royals who are both married now and should be concentrating on their own lives and families. The more the spotlight is off them, the better.

The $75k Ralph & Russo beaded gown was ridiculous paired with blue Harry’s suit and also the cost made her look greedy even before the wedding. The dress itself was lovely just tone deaf.

by Anonymousreply 6504/27/2021

R61 Charles' plan was that the only working royals would be: himself, Camilla, William, Kate, Harry and Meghan. Basically he wanted the European model where it is only the monarch, their consort, and the monarch's children that are funded, working royals. Ironically with Andrew now out of the picture, and H&M gone to America, Charles has basically gotten his wish. I do think it's likely that Anne, Edward, & Sophie will continue on with public engagements until William's children are older.

by Anonymousreply 6604/27/2021

If Meghan had had any sense, she'd have looked at what Kate wore to her own engagement interview: a $600 dress by a British designer which has since been re-released in a $128 version. Any normal woman could own Kate's dress, and that's the point. They couldn't have Kate's looks, engagement ring, or fiance, but they could have her dress.

While Ralph & Russo is a British brand, no normal woman can afford a $75,000 gown. Meghan could have scored major brownie points by regularly wearing up-and-coming British designers of color. Instead, she stuffed her closet with high-end labels (most of them non-British), and the clothes didn't even fit.

by Anonymousreply 7004/27/2021

Meghan could have put Black British design on the worldwide stage. There are some really talented designers like Essie Buckman, Duro Olowu, and Grace Wales Bonner who do gorgeous, innovative pieces. Not all of the clothes are Royal-friendly, but I'm sure the designers would have worked with her to tailor the pieces to her needs. They would also have helped her create a fashion sense all her own, one distinct from Kate's ever-present coat dresses and skinny jeans. She could have made Kate look staid and old-fashioned by contrast.

I wonder if Meghan will ever appreciate the perma-fame and luxury she gave up because she couldn't meet the BRF halfway. She could have been a fashion icon, a respected humanitarian, a representative for the causes of people of color in the UK and in the Commonwealth. She could have been as famous and beloved (or nearly so) as Diana AND carved out a position that Kate couldn't have touched. Why she gave up all of that for merching in Montecito I'll never understand.

MM’s lack of dress sense amazes me because when you have money, that’s the easiest thing to get right. The “BRF-appropriate “ adds a layer of complexity but it’s still not brain surgery. Buy British, a flattering color, and make sure it fits. MM’s style veered between sexy DA and drama villain and her clothes were either too tight or too long. No one is going to fault her for getting pregnant/not losing her pregnancy weight fast enough but ffs, wear garments that are more forgiving.

by Anonymousreply 9104/28/2021

Like many Californians, Meghan seems to think she’s 17 years old and will always be 17 years old. So she dresses and behaves like a 17 year old.

I guarantee that any efforts to coax her into dressing in a BRF appropriate way would have had her thinking “eeeeeew! They want me to dress like an old lady! Why can’t I just wear an unbuttoned boyfriend shirt and a skin tight pencil skirt? That always worked on ‘Suits’!”

by Anonymousreply 9204/28/2021

she looked good on Suits, in character. They lit her well, I always thought she was the prettiest on the cast although the girl who played Donna had those gorgeous large eyes. But that paralegal costume wasn’t going to translate to royal outings. Meghan couldn’t even get hats to look good on her, and Sunday church hats are a very black American tradition. The things she wore looked like pincushions, completely unflattering. I think one of the few outfits that looked good on her was the balcony outfit that had that huge plunging neckline that looked almost off the shoulder. It wasnt quite BRF ready, but it wasn’t as bad as some were complaining about and in any other circumstance it would have been a successful look. Her final appearance in the Kermit green draped dress was a fucking disaster, she looked like a nasty lizard compared to Catherine.

R74 - You're blind. Harry is aging horribly. His bald spot surrounded by scraggly poorly trimmed ginger hair makes him look one step away from a clown, he has beady, close-set eyes, and scraggly teeth. He also looks pale and, for all his grandstanding, tense and unhappy.

William, on the other hand, looks far more robust, wisely got rid of the hair and went with his natural look when he went bald, is taller, and with every passing year acquires a more powerful aura.

Lastly, Harry's masculinity quotient is seriously undermined by the fact that he is 1) dumber than a box of rocks, and 2) clearly being led around by his cock by a vicious, controlling wife.

Whatever one may say about William, it is abundantly clear that Kate is not wearing the trousers in the Cambridge household. She may quietly, behind the scenes, be the core of the family as so many women are, but publicly, she has succeeded where both Diana and Meghan failed: making their men look good by complementing, but not overshadowing them. As it was the men in question who hold the titles and rank, Diana and Meghan only hold them by courtesy, this was not a good look for either man; in the Wales case, as Diana became more and more addicted to her public image and power and less and less concerned about how it impacted her husband, a future King, it was disastrous and helped undermine the marriage.

Meghan Markle has been the ruination of Harry. He looks pathetically Lesser beside his wife. William, on the other hand, More beside his wife - in that sense, Kate was a brilliant choice on William's part. Kate has grasped this crucial element of success in this role that neither Diana nor Meghan could - their narcissism and self-belief prevented them from seeing it, let alone acting on it.

In that respect, this is yet another parallel between the differences in the Wallis/Edward, Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother/George VI marriages. Both women were dominant, steely underneath it all, and smart. But one made a spectacle of her hold over her man, and the other managed to look loving and supportive, despite having ten times the charisma of her husband.

It's actually quite fascinating to watch.

R99 I believe both of Harry's serious girlfriends before Meghan (Chelsy Davy & Cressida Bonas) ended their relationships because they felt that the scrutiny and regimented life outweighed the privileges of being royal. By the time time Harry met Meghan it was known he was desperate to get married and have a family. So I can see him not fully preparing her. I mean he was pretty open about it in the press. I remember him saying something like, no woman wanted to take him on and he felt a bit left behind when he looked at William & Kate (I think William's marriage was another source of jealousy on Harry's part). And I also seem to remember joking once at a LGBTQ event or something, that maybe he'd have better luck dating guys.

R105 William has a great body and he really does give off serious big dick energy. It's no wonder Kate pushed out three kids in quick succession.

R107, the whole point of a Royal engagement photoshoot is OPTICS. It's a PR exercise for the BRF. Anyone with half a brain should know that you want the public to identify with you, not feel that you are above them. Picking an off-the-rack dress that costs what a normal dress would cost gives that message. Choosing a $75,000 gown, even if you don't own it, signals the opposite. Of course, Kate Middleton had it far better than most young women in the UK, but she was smart enough not to underline that point with a ridiculously expensive gown.

I don't think Meghan is evil, but I do think she fundamentally misunderstood the values of the BRF and refused to ever learn them, which is why her tenure as senior royal was so short.

by Anonymousreply 11204/28/2021

Rumors had it that Harry didn't treat either of his two former serious girlfriends all that well. Whatever the truth of that, if he had offered to give up Royal life for Chelsy, she in particular might have taken the plunge with him. Why he didn't hit on that solution earlier is a mystery. He certainly gave up everything quickly enough for Meghan.

Nope. I recall we discussed at the time in the Dangling Tendrils thread when the photos came out. The consensus was "privately purchased meant Charles paid for it ( as opposed to using any taxpayer funds).

R100 - Actually, you're wrong. The Palace, when asked for comment on the engagement photo dress, replied that it had been "privately purchased". The Palace just wouldn't confirm by whom.

"Dec 22, 2017 — However, it was the price of Meghan's dress that set tongues wagging. ... A third official engagement photo released by Kensington Palace of Prince ... It's reported that the dress by the British fashion house was privately purchased, ... Kensington Palace said . . ." And that's The Independent, not a shit tabloid report.

So, no, it wasn't a loaner, although it's a nice try. Kate's white suit for her private engagement photos was also far less expensive - about 800 (pounds). The white cashmere sweater Meghan wore in the less formal engagement photo in black and white cost as much as Kate's entire white suit.

In fact, if you look at the engagement day photos of Diana, the Queen, Anne, Sophie, Fergie, and Kate - NONE of them wore the over-the-top Claws Out I'm Here And I'm Gonna Be Big! ridiculously expensive dress that Meghan wore for those Perfume Ad photos. She came across as phony from the start, interested only in celebrity grandstanding. From Moment One, which those photos were, Meghan made her game plan obvious.

Anyone with half a brain in her head who intended to stay in and make a go of it would have avoided such a faux pas.

That dress, so inappropriate and soooo expensive was another reason I knew MM had no intention of doing the job (Working Royal) that she was signing up for.

The first reason for me was the engagement interview and how she treated Harry during that interview. (Oh, and she didn't know who Prince Harry was .... yeah, right.)

Her behavior from the beginning showed her obvious intentions. And that is just the behavior the public could see. Given these samples, one can only wonder what she exposed to the RF behind the scenes. No wonder the Queen looked as she did at the wedding.

by Anonymousreply 13304/28/2021

If Harry didn't "prepare" Meghan properly for royal life, it's because neither of them were focussed on succeeding at it: just tolerating it for as long as they had to before bailing. That was the real source of her appeal: she had the cleverness and Fuck You attitude to get Harry out, and fast. The whole thing was transactional for both of them: Meghan gets the global profile she's always craved, plus more money than she ever would have earned in show business at her level (that $5 million bit was bullshit of the first order); Harry gets out of the royal biz but with the bennies his royal name confers and to shaft the family he has clearly always blamed for all his problems.

R130 - Better sources than a direct comment from Kensington Palace? Please. Give it up. No one has ever contradicted that it was purchased. No one. Ever. The dress disappeared from Ralph & Russo's lineup immediately. If it had been a loaner they could have sold at twice the price after she wore it.

It disappeared into Meghan's closet, never to be seen again after the furore over the fact that it cost nearly $100,000.

Both Harry and William were traumatized both by the their parent's marriage falling apart and by Diana's death. William has come through it a stronger person thanks in part to Kate and her solid family background, and I because emotionally he much more Windsor than Spencer. I think his personality is much more in line with his grandparents (particularly Philip) than Diana. That's not to say he didn't have his ups & downs. There was a long period in his 20s and early 30s were he seemed reluctant to embrace his future role, but in the last few years he's really stepped it up and since COVID began, William to me seems more King in waiting than Charles frankly.

Harry inherited the Spencer genes. Diana once told a friend that "poor Harry" seemed to have inherited all her worst personality traits. I think at his core Harry needs someone to be the mother he lost. He is at "his best" when he's told what to do. In the military he did well because of the structure it provided. For a while, William and Kate were both friends and almost surrogate parents to Harry. Just going on a limb, but in the early days of the Kate/William/Harry trio, I often though Harry had a bit of an eye for Kate...a mix of attraction but also envy of William finding someone who was willing to take on royal life. Unfortunately, I think with Meghan, he found someone who is all to happy to command him along more for her gain than his.

William has a lucky mix of Windsor and Mountbatten genes. They might make him a cold, unpleasant bastard at times, but they also make him strong enough to stand the pressures of the job, especially when supported by his calm and dutiful wife.

The BRF should have called upon all its resources to help Harry pass his major's exam and stay in the military. It might have been the saving of him. If he'd never married, would it have mattered? The line was going through William, anyway.

R153 I don't think William is cold or unpleasant. He is shrewd and guarded, and people have to earn his trust.

It is known that William used to plant false stories amongst his social circle and if those stories got out, he would cut those people off.

I do agree that the BRF should have been perhaps more strict with Harry but lets face it, Harry has been a grown man for what 18 years now? He shouldn't need hand holding from his granny or father. Harry has always lacked a sense of responsibility and self-discipline.

The Windsors have always been an interesting contrast in characters. Duke of Windsor/George VI, Elizabeth/Margaret, Charles/Andrew, William/Harry.

William had to be a parent figure to his Borderline mother. She admitted it on her interview, he’d bring her little presents to make her feel better and put tissue under the bathroom door hoping she’d stop crying and probably begging her not to kill herself

Rumor is she not only sets up the photos but has a deal to file a suit that gets both sides even more publicity and then there is a settlement. She did this in the UK too. It is striking that Thomas, Doria and MeAgain ALL use BACKGRID for their photo needs even in different countries.

The mystery of why Meghan did not have a single relative from her mother's side of the family at the wedding has been asked but not answered. They have mostly kept their mouths shut, although a couple of years ago one of the aunts or uncles did a little interview for the DM - they sounded mostly sad. For the bride to have but one relative a wedding of this calibre spoke volumes. And not all her father's family were out of Jerry Springer: his brother worked for the Diplomatic Service and got her the internship in Argentina after she flunked the exam - he had enough clout to call the Argentinian ambassador to get her in.

There are nice photos of her surrounded by her mother's relatives as a youngster. My guess is, Meghan felt underneath it all that she didn't belong with those black folks. Remember, this is a woman who never dated a man of colour, straightened her hair, narrowed her nose, joined a white sorority, and put Caucasian on her acting CV.

Then there was that terribly disturbing Christmas card they sent out that looked like an illustration out of an English children's book, showing a little boy who looked more like one of the kids in the Cambridge video released today, than it does her own son.

She's always leant white, she's always wanted to be white, she wanted white hair, a white husband, and white children.

Those are the things she really hates Kate for: Meghan feels in her heart that she came close but not close enough, and no matter what she does, she's still the Wannabe and Kate's still the Real Deal.

R220 - I believe you're right. Meghan knows what men like and she had, according to the blog she erased quickly once she reeled Harry back at Tom Inskip's Jamaica wedding, she's had plenty of practice. I remain of the belief that that sex tape of an alleged younger Meghan giving some dude a rim job for money does exist, but that no one, ever, will be able to trace the owner. The reason I believe it exists is that Harry was photographed heading into the offices of BILD, in Berlin, shortly after the paper announced that it had seen the tape and it was absolutely Meghan Markle, that the owner, alleged to be Canadian, had sent only a portion of it to prove its authenticity and was negotiating the price for the full tape.

Who knows what Harry threatened the paper with, but the story disappeared quickly after his visit. If there were no such tape, I doubt he'd have bothered, and I also doubt that BILD would have bothered with the story if it didn't know the story had "legs".

I'm sure both Kate and Meghan used sex to capture their men. The difference was, Kate was only after one man; Meghan was willing to do anything with any man who could get her onto the next rung of that very greasy ladder.

I can tell you what happened with Scabies and the title story: he published a twitter post yet again suggesting that the Queen had shown undue favourtism toward the Cambridge kids who ALSO, he said, weren't "entitled" to the HRHs.

Then people who actually knew something about the rules pointed out that in fact, according to the 1917 Titles act, the "no HRHs for great-grandchildren" did NOT apply to the eldest son of the eldest son son of the Prince of Wales" -in other words, Prince George bloody well WAS entitled to that HRH by the rules. The issued those Letters Patent 1) making the first child of the Cambridges the next in line regardless of gender, and 2) making sure that if that first child was a girl, she too got an HRH despite not being the eldest SON of the eldest SON of the Prince of Wales, yet being next in line for the throne after her father. At that point, it would have been only divisive to give one child the HRH, and not the other anticipated 2 or 3, especially as one would be the Spare.

So Scobie got egg all over his face for passing himself as a RR for a major publication but obviously not knowing a damned thing about his subject, and just robotically carrying Meghan's water for her.

Hence, his hasty correction and lame attempt to hold onto Meghan's favour by adding that meaningless "but there's more to this story than that . . ." There isn't. Harry has known all his life what the deal was with the HRHs and the likelihood that he would die about 13th in line and his kids wouldn't be HRHs until his father became King. The idea that he didn't tell Meghan this is beyond spurious.

As always, in service to her own agenda and reorganised internal universe, Meghan pretended to be shocked, SHOCKED that her kid has to wait till the Queen kicked the bucket to be Prince Archie and Kate's didn't. And Harry sat there and heard her tell a total lie about the whole thing and then wondered why his father and brother weren't taking his calls any longer, and why the two of them are now pariahs in the very landscape to which they owe whatever marketability they possess.

That interview is turning out, as so many predicted, to be Harry's and Meghan's "Diana On Panorama" moment.

by Anonymousreply 25905/01/2021

What's interesting about the Scobie fumble, is that rather than manning up and owning his error, and saying, "My bad, I should have looked up the rule myself," he blamed Meghan whilst at the same time offering an excuse for her. "Misinterpretation" isn't possible in that environment, where anyone, including her husband, would have made it clear why the Cambridge kids were HRHs at birth whilst the Sussex kids have to wait till the Queen dies and the kids turn into HRHs when Charles becomes King.

So Scobie was between a rock and a hard place: if he admitted he didn't look it up, the natural next comment would be, "Yeah, and Meghan didn't, either."

But if he implies that he got it wrong, it follows that he got it wrong because he believed what Meghan said. If he takes that approach, he's throwing direct shade at his patroness.

So he tried to straddle an area between admitting that both he and Meghan got it wrong, but only because Meghan "misinterpreted" the situation, throwing some shade at her, but leaving her some face-saving room that in fact fooled nobody.

Were I Meghan, I would be raging at him for responding to the truth at all and leaving her with egg on her face, as well as his.

This debacle tells you what you need to know about how things work with Meghan. She fucking lied, Omid Scobie tried to support her lie, and when caught out, had a choice between looking like an idiot or a liar.

I'm surprised he was willing to go even this far to save himself from both charges - I wonder if he knew his position as Royal Reporters for Harper's Bazaar might be compromised if he didn't make some gesture toward the truth: the Cambridge kids had a right to those HRHs and titles at birth, and Archie Harrison Mountbatten-Windsor didn't.

by Anonymousreply 26105/01/2021

With Meghan (Scobie), there is always an agenda. What's Meghan's agenda here because anything that comes out of Scobie's mouth is going to be approved if not written by Meghan herself. I think the timing of PP was perfect. Major backlash against the BRF that lasted about 6 weeks post Oprah. Over this period, the Sussexes ramped up their extortion via Gayle and Scobie while the BRF slowly and quietly leaked their poison. Each of Meghan's truths were debunked by experts. By the time PP died, the story had pretty much passed. Philip's beautiful funeral showing a stoic, solitary, elderly Queen, an emotional Charles, and a regal Kate are optic and images that will be in the history books. Meanwhile, Meghan is in Montecito merching and leaking, Harry clearly on the outs. Whenever you think about doing something rash, always look to the BRF. The long, subtle game always pays off.

The last bits of BRF sparkle have faded from Meghan. She wasn't in the family long enough to keep royal status for life. It also seems like with all the projects they are trying to launch, all the interest is in Harry and not Meghan. I've said this before, but I really believe Meghan believed that she would call the BRF racists assholes and they would welcome her back with open arms, issuing a public apology. She blew her load and it's probably becoming clear that there is not way back, which is the death of her brand. It now seems like she is trying to kiss some ass to be let back into the fold.

Meghan always surprises me because she is so type A and I know she does her homework. Her fatal flaw is/was not understanding that the UK and especially the BRF is not Hollywood. She keeps trying Hollywood tactics that keep blowing up in her face. She's also losing fans. I liked Meghan as a new royal and loved her in her progression into the calculating vileness, but the Oprah interview costs people jobs, ratched up the racial tensions and divides in the US and after that, I started hating her. I do want to see this epically blow up in her face now.

by Anonymousreply 26205/01/2021

So they are back to milking the titles situation again, for maximum clicks and deliberate misdirection.

Meghan admitted to O that she knew and understood the 1917 LP issued by George V, that restricted HRH/Prince to only the male-line grandchildren of the monarch and the great-grandchild who is heir-in-line. No other great-grandkids are HRH -until- their grandparent becomes monarch. She clearly wasn't happy with that longstanding rule and wanted it modified for her kids. Her intimation was that HRHs were being denied because they would be biracial - so crass, low-end, and untrue.

What I also took away from her anger in that interview, was that there had clearly been discussions about *never* having her children be HRH/Prince-ss. That she'd been made aware that Charles had planned for a slimming of the BRF and a restrictive titles overhaul. The Wessex children were the first 'trial run' of this plan, with Harry's always planned on as next - this idea came about long before Meghan was in the picture, so race was never part of the discussion.

She knew before Archie was born that they never planned on having him or his siblings be HRHs. It's Charles's desire, and his to implement as he sees fit, she and Harry have no say in it. But this really set her off like a firecracker, can't imagine what she was like about it behind closed doors.

I believe the main impetus for her anger, and the Oprah debacle, was regarding this issue.

by Anonymousreply 26305/01/2021

She has always raged and threatened to get her way in every relationship she has been in. So has Harry. I think it worked it part because people like her are so very exhausting. They do not care how their tantrums affect the people in their life, not how very bad it makes them look. People give in because they are unable to deal with the never ending drama. It is the worst thing they could do because it enabled her and her bad behavior was basically rewarded, same with Harry. Their family/spouse/boyfriend just wanted peace and for the person to just stfu and stop embarrassing them. She would have never gotten away with what she did in trf if she weren't biracial. Not the first time, not at all. The threat , which turned out to be valid, of being labeled racist put trf in an almost impossible situation. I think it was low and cruel. They also had to yet again fear Harry's explosive reaction. Both of them have treated the people in their life cruelly. The interview really showed everyone their true colors, and it was very ugly. PP's declining heath their cold blooded reaction to both PP and trf at a time of immense sadness and grief was stunning in it's callousness. At a time when TQ should have had what remaining time he had left to spend with her husband of 70 some odd years, they had the stress and betrayal of two greedy, vengeful, cruel , ungrateful monsters to add to their grief and ruin the precious time they had together. As if that wasn't enough, the staggering disrespect they both showed trf and PP during his funeral was the very end for them. Merching a fucking funeral wreath DURING the funeral!!!! Sickening. Harry ruining the progression and then forcing W&K to speak to him. Harry was the only family member who showed absolutely no grief for PP. The rest of the family were gutted. Psychopaths. They truly are. I not only pity their children, I worry about abuse. They both are completely incapable of love, empathy. They have no morals and no conscience. We love our pets more than they love their child. I hope their downfall is irreversible and complete. My wish for them is poverty and to be shunned by society. They both deserve no less.

It's funny how children of insane or very "over the top" parents often produce the polar opposite. Sarah Chatto is known to be extremely down to earth, avoids publicity, and is the polar opposite of her mom. Then you see photos of her son, who seems like the opposite of Sarah, and more in line with Margaret, at least in terms of attention whoring. The Queen's favorite seems to be ever changing, but it's always been said that Sarah Chatto was the person the Queen loved spending time with. I believe the Queen has a "little cottage" on the Balmoral estate that is her private sanctuary that she likes to take walks to and only Sarah is ever invited to join her there.

Harry was shocked, huh. Just goes to show us how much inappropriate behavior he has gotten away with if he was shocked that his disrespect for PP and TQ wouldn't be overlooked. That isn't including his behavior toward PC and PW. SMH.

r301 The mind boggles what he actually was expecting given he was shocked??

r299 You are welcome .If the Harkles were savvy and intelligent they would have realized how counterproductive and smothering of any possibility of future trust their leaking and allowing surrogates to chat about private telephone conversations publicly was to enabling any possibility of a sorting out of and resolution of differences .Gayle King certainly would have understood which makes me question how real a friend she is to the couple. By doing that they literally ensured most of the options and choices the royal family had would have to be taken off the board.Very foolish and short termist a move.

Are you referring to the incident were they turned up uninvited to a jewelry viewing and tried to insert themselves into the event?

Yes I like Zara too but I am also expecting a few more royal pregnancy announcements in the coming months to add to the number of great grandchildren.My prediction is Princess Beatrice and the Duchess of Cambridge will announce pregnancies.

I also think a more distant royal relative will announce a pregnancy. Lady Gabriela Windsor.

Eugenie and Beatrice will surely have more pregnancies, but I'd be surprised if Kate did. That severe morning sickness she got with all 3 pregnancies gets worse with age and worse with each pregnancy--she could put her health in serious jeopardy for a 4th baby. Also, in the next few years she and William will be stepping up as Prince and Princess of Wales. It will take effort and planning to be there for the children they already have. I think they're done.

r305 you may be right but dont rule out being surprised! Her Uncle Gary said on twitter in 2015 after Charlotte was born that he thought they would have two more and in 2019 I think Kate said she was broody but William was less keen but that can change in terms of William.

If the Sussex duo had moved to North America, kept their heads down, and played least in sight, and after 6 months or so, made a few select appearances without the constant barrage of PR releases, their aura would have been noteworthy.

But they themselves have cheapened their own brand.

The Royal Family did not do this to them. Nor did the media.

They did it to themselves.

If the stories about MM not listening to any advice (both before and after the marriage), then it seems likely that that is the source of the trouble.

Also Dan Wootton just confirmed Megz has been trying to sell this children's book for some time now. It was allegedly written BEFORE Archie was even born (Wootton first published an article about this book in 2019). Also apparently Meghan's title is incorrectly listed and the Palace could ask her to change it.

Her correct title is "Meghan, Duchess of Sussex" but the book lists her as "Meghan, THE Duchess of Sussex." This is very nitpicky but apparently "THE" is a style used by blood royals OR by royal ex-wives. When Diana was married to Charles she was "Diana, Princess of Wales" but after her divorce, she was granted the title of Princess of Wales by the Queen and therefore was allowed to use "THE" Princess of Wales because she held that title in her own right & not as the wife of Charles. Fergie is also now "Sarah, The Duchess of York."

R353 Everything that you wrote in your final paragraph is incorrect.

by Anonymousreply 35505/04/2021

When Diana was married to Charles she was “HRH The Princess of Wales”. After their divorce she lost the HRH and was styled as “Diana, Princess of Wales” which is standard for widowed or former wives of peers. She was never granted the Princess of Wales title by the Queen - it was hers as the wife of the Prince of Wales.

You are getting confused about the use of “The”. This is used for children of the Sovereign - therefore you have “The Princess Anne” (aka The Princess Royal) but not “The Princess Beatrice”. Nothing to do with being a blood Royal or a Royal ex wife.

Meghan should really just be calling herself Meghan Markle as she’s such a committed feminist.

by Anonymousreply 35605/04/2021

^ yes.

And the The is barely used. It is not incorrect but it's ancient days.

by Anonymousreply 35705/04/2021

Meghan actually is "Meghan, The Duchess of Sussex" as she's the wife of Harry, The Duke of Sussex. If she were to divorce him, she would be styled "Meghan, Duchess of Sussex", losing the "The" before her title.

by Anonymousreply 35805/04/2021

Great find, R353. They really seem to be scraping the bottom of the barrel. The IG thing will not be very lucrative, seems that leaves the Diana movie which will be scorched earth, a reality show and the divorce yet to come.

Archie turns 2 this week. He and MeAgain have no discernable connection and Hazbean is a mess. Hope he has someone in his life that loves him although the Narkles do not keep any carers around for long. What drama and acting out will mark the occasion? Hope the swelling on his face has gone down and it was not caused by his mother throwing things.

by Anonymousreply 36605/04/2021

R353 is wrong. It’s NEVER ‘HRH Meghan, The Duchess of Sussex’ or ‘HRH Sophie, The Countess of Wessex.’ The correct style is HRH The Duchess of Sussex or HRH the Countess of Wessex.

In the case of divorce, the ladies use the first name and a comma, followed by the title which serves as a surname but without the ‘the’ because the husband could marry again and his wife would be ‘THE’.

So we have Diana, Princess of Wales and Sarah, Duchess of York. No HRH, no ‘the’, they are simply divorced commoners who retained the title as part of their new name. Meghan will be Meghan, Duchess of Sussex after Harry divorces her. UNLESS something dramatic happens as in the case of Tessy of Luxembourg and they write up papers to prevent her from using the former title at all. Meghan won’t be single long as Harry divorces her anyway, she’ll marry again. And when she does, she’ll lose the Sussex name completely. Fergie knew this, and never remarried.
