Meghan and Harry Stir the Pot, Part Five

Part Four now paywalled, so have at it here, royal gossips.

by Anonymousreply 107August 3, 2021 9:07 PM

What is the consensus here, is Euge a Harkle sympathizer or a mole for TRF?

I lean towards mole as the York girls get so little fanfare I can't imagine having her wedding day hijacked by MegTungsten's pregnancy stunt endeared her to them or their mother. But I could be wrong....

I think Bea is the weak link. Meg probably flatters and inflames her. Probably gives her bits of LA celeb gossip and waits for the royal gossip. Bea doesn’t seem to be a good judge of character and probably hates Will and Kate.

I’d bet $500 the “racist” comment was telegraphed to the Sussexes via Bea.

by Anonymousreply 3July 14, 2021 10:37 PM

This whole story is nothing more complicated than jealousy. Meghan was jealous of Kate. Harry is jealous of William. Bea and Eugenie are jealous of William and Kate. Andrew is jealous of Charles. Fergie was always jealous of Diana. Remember how she told people she loaned shoes to Diana who then gave them back and Fergie got athlete's foot. People seem to have forgotten how Fergie was pushing Diana to leave Charles.

The green-eyed monster is outta control!

Where’s Doria? I thought the whole reason she’s living with Harry and Meghan is to be the corroborating person (Harry abusive) when the divorce goes down.

Sort of like when Chrissy Teigen quit (then returned) Twitter just before she was canceled. Same thing with Yashar Ali tweeting his depression just before LA Magazine exposé on his scummy character.

I don't think Euge loves Meghan and Harry but I do think she hates Charles and deeply resents William and Kate. And Charles despises Andrew and has never been careful about hiding it.

It was Charles who stopped Andrew's late and lame attempt to shoehorn his daughters onto the royal gravy train right after William married Kate.

I doubt Bea cared. She's a nice, sweet, slack sort who only wanted the life she finally got with her husband.

But Euge always had more going on upstairs and I think was keen to have the gig if she could.

I don't think she's ever forgiven Charles for his naked contempt for both her parents, or for stopping her from joining the ranks of senior working royals.

If she's giving the Harkles a hand here and there ny feeding them tidbits of family gossip, it's payback for Charles.

But that's all she's got, and if she thinks Charles doesn't know, she should think again.

But the Yorks are out, thanks to Andrew. She's do better to be a angry at her father but I suppose it's easier to shift all the blame onto Charles instead of the utterly feckless, graceless, and incredibly stupid behaviour of her parents.

No one is passing state secrets to Harry. Only the Queen sees those state papers. She's as likely to discuss them in front of Harry and Euge as she is to throw herself off the turrets of Windsor Castle. Only her Private Secretary assists with those and you can bet your arse he ain't talking.

So all the MI5 and MI6 stuff is bullshit. So is talk of private videos secretly taken by Harry and Meghan. Like, passing each other in the halls? They all live in separate homes, being in the same place together only on special occasions.

And whatever they have is illegal to show and they know it, never mind that it's so anodyne it would put viewers to sleep.

This is all tabloid smoke and mirrors.

Whoever dropped the story about Charles and the issue of the Edinburgh title, it wasn't Euge. She's not exactly someone Charles would have discussed the matter before.

Louis is in line for the York ducal title. That one is always reserved for the younger son. He's 3 years old. If Louis marries at 35, Andrew will likely be dead, and Louis will get the York dukedom on his wedding day. They aren't all going to live to 98. And Andrew is fat, isolated, and bitter. I don't picture him living that long.

I do wonder who leaked the Edinburgh story which I'm not at all sure I even believe.

But I don't think it was Euge. No matter how resentful of Charles she is, she can't not know that the leak would inevitably be traced back to her, and that if she wants access to some of those goodies like Grace and Favour homes, and her kids in good with the next reign, this kind of action is over the line and not worth the danger.

Meghan/Meghan = Pearl ... a sheer coincidence? Probably not.

Quoted from wiktionary.en:

Megan / Meghan - Originally a Welsh pet form of Margaret, now often used as an independent given name

Margaret - From the name of a legendary third century saint, from Middle English Margaret, from Old French Margaret (French Marguerite), from Latin Margarita, from Ancient Greek μαργαρίτης (margarítēs, “pearl”), ultimately from an Indo-Iranian source. [...]

by Anonymousreply 10July 15, 2021 10:07 AM

With Margaret meaning pearl, they could've named Lilibucks Margaret or Margarita or something like that - that would've been the PERFECT merching opportunity AND Megsy would've had her "Little Pearl ( = Meghan, that is)" without stirring the shit pot like they used to do with using Lilibet.

Well, stirring the shit pot was exactly what they were aiming at in the first place, so ...

Anyway, Margaret or Margarita would've been nice and could've been interpreted as a nod to HM The Queen without being and looking like vindictive cunts.

by Anonymousreply 11July 15, 2021 10:08 AM

I really don't see Charles or William wanting to make any more royal dukes, after the current fiasco. What benefit does it bring? There are no other hereditary peers being created, so they stand out like privileged sore thumbs. They don't usually have any useful regional role relating to their titles. Charles is supposed to want a slim line monarchy focussed on the line of succession - in which case there's no point in enhancing ancillary branches. I don't see Charlotte or Louis getting extra titles. There's nothing wrong with being just HRH Prince or Princess.

Off note, Kamala’s stories aren’t new, we’ve heard them here in SF and California since way back. Where there’s smoke there’s fire as they say. But I voted for her anyway, my disdain for Trump is worse.

Anyway, Megs should be afraid, very afraid. She’s not the VP who can skate by with other excuses. She’s a nasty D-lister who went power hungry and showed her true personality to “the little people” who are the recipients of her bullying.

Then she ran the worst campaign in history with her sister as campaign manager and her attention whore niece playing twitter troll. I'm thinking she surrounds herself with bitchy cronies.

If the book goes well, she can be the "inspiration" the one who encouraged him.

Charles will almost certainly make George a Duke when he marries if Charles is king by then.

And when Elizabeth and Charles die and William accedes to the throne, the eldest son of the monarch automatically becomes Duke of Cornwall and Duke of Rothesay.

They are pretty much stuck with George, and they'd better hope he turns out to be stabler than his Uncle Harry.

Diana would never have embarrassed the royal family???!!!

Oh, my sides!

It must have been another Princess of Wales who washed the family's dirty laundry in the Mortpn book and then implied the Queen's heir wasn't fit to be King (although she have had a point there) on that infamous Panorama interview.

Diana was always a frustrated Star. She and Meghan had that in common. Small talent, Big Stage Longings.

Diana just turned out to be better on the royal stage than Meghan.

Diana never knew Charles well let alone understood him.

But she understood the phrase Her Royal Highness Diana, Princess of Wales.

Hence, her fixation marrying him from her mid- teens, when it was already clear that advantageous marriage was all she was fit for.

R24 How ironic if Harry's and the Bower book come out at the same time, but Harry's is far less shocking than the media is trying to assure the public it will be, and gets totally overshadowed by Bower's ruthlessly truthful portrait of Meghan the lying, scheming, bullying, opportunist who always bites the hands that feed her and then expects them to apologise for the blood.

by Anonymousreply 39July 22, 2021 12:44 PM

R38 - Well, Bower was right on one point: as Diana got her licks in, it was really Charles she was after, she wasn't intent on destroying her children's patrimony. She was, after all, and English aristocrat and the beneficiary of the system upon which the monarchy is the pinnacle. She probably did respect the Queen in a way that Meghan never did - she never saw the Windsors as anything but a really good mark and a stepping stone.

And Charles does bear some responsibility here for marrying a woman he didn't love, being utterly helpless at handling his marital mistake.

In that sense, Bower is probably not that far off, it's just that using the phrase "would never have embarrassed the royal family" was fatally stupid when all one has to do is mention Morton and Bashir.

The real difference between Diana and Meghan is that Meghan only wanted the perks and never wanted the job - she and Harry knew before the ring was on her finger that they were planning to use the BRF to get themselves established as a couple and then leave with as much cachet and cash as they could.

Diana didn't want out: she wanted Charles to come crawling back to her and to go on being his wife and a future Queen. That the expectation was ludicrously unrealistic is something Diana, like most narcissists super-optimistic about things always going her way, only found out after the fact. Then she realised her mistake.

I don't think Meghan thinks she made a mistake. She got what she wanted: fame, wealth, and status without having to do work she clearly loathed.

Don't underestimate Bower, though. He was talking to stir the pot, too.

R46 They likely still would have divorced but not until after the Queen Mum died. That marriage was dead by the end of the 1980s. They had both aired too much of their dirty laundry in public and it would be impossible for the public to ever believe that had made up. I suspect they would have divorced by the mid-00s and with William and Harry being older, Diana would have retained her HRH. She would've eventually remarried (possibly more than once) and Charles would have married Camilla before the diamond jubliee. I think Diana's star would have waned to a degree as she got older but she would have had more of active role within the royal firm as William would have wanted her there as part of the fabric of the firm.

Harry believes his mother would've approved of everything he's doing...I don't think she would have.

She got Harry as far as Canada without mentioning California, then two things happened: the Canadian public balked at paying for their annual multi-million pound security bill, then Covid happened. Harry described how they suddenly decided to move to Los Angeles literally over a single weekend when the travel restrictions were hoving into view, ostensibly so they could be near Meghan's mother.

I strongly suspect that Meghan always planned on L.A./ California, but failed to mention anything to Harry, intending to get him away from the family first, then ease him into the idea over time. After all, I imagine it was pretty easy to get Harry to agree to moving to a Commonwealth country since he assumed any Commonwealth country would pay for the security AND give him his "due deference".

Then when they were in Canada, having announced the fait d'accompli to family and public, and then once Canada balked at the massive security bill, she got to work on him to think beyond Canada.

Then Covid border closures gave her her perfect opportunity to leave him no time to think: "Harry!! We have to go RIGHT NOW!! Or precious Archie might NEVER see my mother again!!". They had nowhere set up in LA to go to within the two-day window the travel restrictions introduced, so she called Oprah, Oprah called Tyler, and presto.

Two days later they're settling in at Tyler's house, safely within Celebritytastic 50/50 divorce law land, and Meghan's first main "Megxit" objective was achieved, with Harry none the wiser that this was always her plan.

Her next objective was to get Harry to break into his trust fund to pay for a massive house. Especially as that puts the rest of the trust fund on the table (along with the house itself) for the divorce settlement, and she achieved that too.

Quite the little golddigging achiever, our Meg.

Well, we know that Perry erected huge invisibility barriers around his property after the Harkles had been there for a few weeks. I imagine he wasn't best pleased at doing that, since it enraged the neighbors.

I suppose that may indicate that somebody was demanding something while they were staying there. Given Meghan's abrasive reputation, I presume it was her, but who knows? Harry is a Grade A asshole too, so could be either.

R60 I agree that California was always Megz final goal but the reason they selected Canada was at the time, they wanted to still be part-time working royals and they thought being in Canada, which is a Commonwealth country that still has the Queen as head of state, would keep you their royal appearances while being out of the UK. As you said, the Canadian public didn't want them there and it became clear the royals were not going to give into their demands so they dashed to LA before the borders closed. I think even if they had stayed part-time royals, they would have bought property in LA under the guise that Megz wanted to be closer to her mother.

Could this new four book deal lay the groundwork for a Netflix series like The Crown, but told from Harry's point of view? That would certainly be worth a lot of money, far more than any wellness crap programming.

Is there some California? divorce law that says if the marriage lasts for more than 10 years, you’re in a better position re a payout after a divorce. Maybe something to do with community property?

So with this four book deal he's totally going to try to bring down the monarchy after the Queen dies. The book to be published after the Queen dies will claim that Prince Philip ordered Diana killed because she was dating a person of colour.....royals need to completely detach themselves from Harry.

I'm wondering if Harry is going to get a visit from the State Department soon. He is using the US as a base to attack the Head of State of our closest ally. They can kick Harry out of the country tomorrow. Harry and Meghan are truly, unbelievably stupid.

R80 I doubt it, but I think one of Samantha's daughters is Team Meg. She can testify to a lack of relationship with her grandfather. Samantha is estranged from her mother AND her children. That's...impressive.

R88 not as impressive as Meghan who is estranged from her family and her in-laws! Prince Harry: "we are the family Meggie never had!"

Tina Brown basically concurs with what I said at R43.

Most of this 'news' is fairly pedestrian, if not outright boring, yet the UK tabs splash the most lurid headlines about H&M on their front pages.

R75 - Please provide a shred of proof that Charles is providing a monthly maintenance check to Meghan's mother.

I despise Meghan, but, really, these kinds of utterly unproved rumours are idiotic. Any half-decent agent could have uncovered the financial trail - especially a cheque.

So, let's have it. Please provide a link to something besides rumour that proves this.

R93 the nuts see any random theory as gospel. A favorite I saw recently was that Meghan had a pregnancy when she was young and Samantha raised the child

What four book deal? Klan morons.

R94, ok, this is just stupid - just like the surrogacy thing. She did give birth to these kids - she wants herself to be tied to the BRF forever and she would not have got THAT FAT for nothing, you know.

Great article in The Times today. A former close friend of Harry's claims that Harry had fears of becoming "Prince Andrew": "Harry has always been in such a rush to make an "impact", because he thinks he has a limited shelf-life before the public want to hear more from George and his siblings and he worries that after that, he’ll turn into his uncle.' " Friends speculate he wants to release his memoirs now, when he's only 37, because he worries he may have a limited shelf live even in America as well. He's desperate to stay relevant. Former friends (and even one of Harry's ex's) are ready to start spilling the tea on Harry if he discusses them in his book.

R98 What's ironic is that I don't think Harry would have become another Andrew. Pre-Meghan, it was very clear Charles and William wanted Harry (and his eventual wife) to be a central part of their respective reigns. Charles was never close to Andrew partly because of the age gap, partly because Andrew is a pompous fool, and partly because Andrew is the Queen's favourite and it pissed Charles off.

R99 - Ironic doesn't begin to cover it.

It's interesting that the last of Harry's personal possessions were removed from Frogmore Cottage a couple of days ago. No denial of that story has come out. The Harkles allegedly paid up the rent until 1 April 2022. Eugenie and her husband could easily pick that lease up up and the Harkles refunded.

Frogmore Cottage is a half-mile from Windsor Castle where Gran lives. One can hardly publish an accusatory memoir, with another one likely after the old lady is raptured, and expect to be comfortable at Frogmore.

Anyone else still betting on that invitation to step out onto the balcony of Buck House for next year's Extra Special Trooping the Colour with the rest of the family?

I do wish the BRF would just DO something at last.

The very idea of these spastics 'reigning' over anyone is medieval.

The Harkles will never set foot in the UK again. They'll lead their lives as reality TV celebs in LA from now on. What a pity Evelyn Waugh is dead; he could have done justice to their peculiar situation.

R102 - LOL - Waugh would have skewered those two so that the resembled nothing so much as a lamp kebab.
