R11 - Because people are commenting on the Harry's Gone Native Californian instead, which has really turned into what this thread was meant to turn into.
Threads are left open even if they're slow moving. Also, DLers appear to be totally undisciplined about not starting duplicate threads. A couple of hours after a thread was opened on Bea's pregnancy announcement, someone opened a second one. I mean, really? Two threads on Bea's pregnancy announcement?!
So the comments get spread across what are, in reality, half a dozen threads, four of which are totally unnecessary.
Meanwhile, this thread should be about the Palace's strategy in the face of what are now incessant, cruel, and in some cases provably false attacks by the Sussexes on the monarchy.
The Sussexes are, in my opinion, teetering on the edge of an abyss they clearly don't see in front of them. The public are less than fascinating with their "philanthropy" and only interested in their connection to the BRF. And yet, that connection is now is ashes. So all the Sussexes can do is keep the feud alive with constant attacks as a way of reminding the public they the Sussexes Are British Royalty!
But it can work for so long. They're beginning to get the message that in and of themselves, they're boring. Not to mention dislikable (Harry Fucking Windsor criticising the First Amendment whilst ostensibly a guest in the country - talk about own goals that show the public who you really are!).
The BRF's strategy of silence is working extremely well. The angrier and more sullen and vicious Harry's attacks become, the more they look like his victim rather than the other way around. The non-acknowledgement of the Sussexes' third wedding anniversary but announcing Bea's pregnancy and the Cambridges' upcoming Scottish tour on that exact date is a sign that the Palace is out of patience and is telling the public that they are out out out.
Word on the street is that behind that silence, the Palace and its advisors, solicitors, and senior royals are seriously considering further and more drastic steps, such as taking Harry's ducal title and his HRH for real. Stories about his hypocrisy in attacking the monarchy but holding on to his titles are being leaked repeatedly.
A few more virulent attacks on the institution and the Queen, and HM may even have a case for a removal from the line of succession. The Queen is, after all, Britain's Head of State. In attacking the Queen, which he recently did, Harry is attacking one of the two fundamental arms of Britain's national leadership (the other of course is the political arm, the government). If Harry doesn't watch himself, he may just give her a reason to, regretfully, request Parliament to remove him and his descendants from the line of succession.
Talk of "recollections varying"!
So there are interesting things that should be discussed here, it's a question of looking at what the thread title actually says and trying to stick to it.
