"The Me That Won't Shut Up" Prince Harry Has penned a memoir

Say what you will, but at least the Sussexes are striking while the iron is hot. Interest in the Windsors will plummet when (if?) The Queen dies and William and Harry become old and unattractive (which has already started to occur).

They're smart to cash in now.

So basically he wants to take down the monarchy because he doesn't William to be a bigger celebrity than he is.

Apparently this was announced today because the UK Government is Quietly changing the Regency Act to remove Harry as he is no longer resident in the UK.

[quote] Interest in the Windsors will plummet when (if?) The Queen dies and William and Harry become old and unattractive (which has already started to occur).

I don't think that's true at all.

Interest in the Windsors will be high when the changeover inevitably comes: everyone will want to know how Charles handles being king, whether Camilla will even become queen, and how William and Kate will be as Prince and Princess of Wales.

Moreover, the Queen is 95 now, and her mother lived to 101. Let's say the current Queen lives to the same age (a likely bet). Prince George will be 13 then and just entering puberty, which will be very interesting for everyone: since he looks so much like his father now, he will probably be, like his father, a very handsome teenage boy when he (inevitably) attends secondary school.

Finally, many people think Harry's marriage will have collapsed by then, and he might very well be back on the marriage market.

Public fascination with the BRF is intrinsic to it. It's not the Queen herself who is so glamorous (she is a dutiful but dull and aged woman), but rather the institution of the monarchy itself. Just as with William before, and Charles before that, everyone in the English-speaking world will become interested in time with who George will marry when he gets older.

r4 But their not cashing in now but in 14 months when I suspect even more people will have entered the zone of couldn't give a f**k

He will I am sure being the blackmailer of sorts that he is try to use this book as leverage-Give me my own way on Lilibets christening, The Jubilee, more money , paid security etc and I will not include or reveal story x y z in my book. The royal family and their advisors would have been expecting this and game planned for it. In a broadbrush summary they will largely take the hit and move on like after the Oprah interview. I wonder if other people will also publish books like the women Harry is supposed to have been inappropriate with in the USA when doing military training? He can't spill beans about his experiences and expect nobody else in the world might not do the same to his detriment. What's good for the goose is good for the gander.

r7 Petty for not having someone as a counsellor of state or regent to a future head of state when they no longer live in that state and have trashed it? Few states would accept any comparable equivalent situation. Its logical and fair.

What is petty is having a trustful and crying publicly like a spoilt brat that Daddy won't give you anymore money.

It appears that Page Six leaked the story and it forced Random House to confirm it. Allegedly this wasn't going to be announced until next year.

The Brits are so UK-centric on this board. Harry didn't want his dad's money or his cottage or any of that. He and Meghan wanted to be Americans, to live the American dream...they had enough, told us why they left and so be it. If she had wanted it, she could have stayed and been like Kate but I can't, for the life of me, understand why anyone with a little bit of money and freedom would want to tie themselves down for life like that. I would kill myself. No wonder Diana went mad and Fergie got through it drunk or high. Most of my gym friends said they didn't know what she was thinking. Giving up an independent life to live like that? Can't even have a bite when you want or turn on the light as you please, according to Fergie.

Meanwhile, they complain about having not enough titles, she puts her title rather than her name on the spine of her book, and he is so title-focused that he filled out Lilibuck's birth certificate improperly, avoiding all mention of his forenames entirely.

You are also ignoring, perhaps intentionally that they wanted a half in half out arrangement and not just to be americans and were quite miffed when denied. The new invention by some of their fanclub they made this offer because they wanted to be kind and help the royal family out with duties is frankly nonsense at its kindest and bull at its least kind.

There's a reason they are trying to rewrite history about Initially asking for half in half out arrangement and that's because it undermines and contradicts their new narrative.

The brass balls of them to want their son to be titles as a prince when he would have nothing to do with Britain, grow up in California and basically be a celebutard like Brody Jenner was shameless. It would've been an insult to the British people and cheapened the Monarchy.

No one is taking down the monarchy, including Ha6, who by now has a pretty good idea that nothing he and Meghan claim has done it. What's more, they can now see that all their attacks have made the Queen and the Cambridges look good.

All Harry is interested in is milking every last drop of money out of his royal status before the balloon goes completely flat.

He hasn't a thing to tell anyone that is any more vicious or dishonest than what he and Meghan have already lobbed, and the monarchy hasn't budged.

They need every penny they can lay their hands on. That's all. This was just the logical Next Thing.

We'll all be afflicted with them for the foreseeable future, because public exposure is the air they must breathe in order to live lives with any context.

On my the venue changed: the basic rationale for their lives didn't.

No one really cares what they actually say any longer, unless they accuse William of boiling bunnies for breakfast in front of his kids, and will care even less so in 2022.

But they have to keep talking, or, like the shark who has to keep moving, they'll die.

The Windsors are moving on, clearly freezing the two of them out gradually but inexorably.

The Harkles will keep trying to pretend that they haven't become irrelevant to the Windsors.

None of it will matter much.

Rather than face the Harry problem head-on the RF lives in hope that things will improve. They are so petrified of the "R" card being used against them they refuse to do anything. Well, guess what? Harry and Meghan did use the R card against them. They did spill their guts before a world wide audience in which they disparaged the UK, the institution, and Harry's family. They haven't slowed down one iota. They continue to disparage the RF. The situation is untenable. TQ now has to act. Bring in the duly elected government and Prime Minister and hand off the Harry file to them. The Prime Minister can make the announcement that Parliament has decided to revoke all titles and privileges and remove Harry and his children from the line of succession. Harry and Meghan will squawk but they are going to squawk anyway. Make a clean break and make clear that Harry in no way shape or form speaks for the UK or the UK's head of state. Enough.

by Anonymousreply 85Last Tuesday at 2:51 AM

R63 It's a nice thought but a fantasy. To persuade Parliament to remove Harry from the succession, Harry would have to had been caught plotting a coup against the monarchy or raising an army against Britain or selling state secrets to Putin. And Harry doesn't know any state secrets, only the Queen does, and she'd hardly have shared them with William, let alone Harry.

Harry wants attention and money and he's getting both this way. The racism card is shot already, the family have likely accepted that the Harkles will be a pain in the arse for the foreseeable, but no more than a pain in the arse.

Especially as, for all their efforts at outraged victimhood, the Harkles seem to have a gift for making fools of themselves. They get attention but they are taken less seriously with every increasingly boring whingefest.

The one big mistake the Queen made was not taking their HRHs and the Sussex title as soon as they left. She had to know they were going to commercialise the monarchy to make their living, and that eventually there would be no realistic way to stop them.

If she'd taken the titles and HRHs, the two nasty little cunts could still have made quite a thing of their FORMER status. It's not as if the American media would ne particularly exacting and would still be calling them by their titles.

But at least the Queen would have, and should have, nailed home that there's a price for betraying Queen's gifts.

Sentimental old Brit queen that I am (I know, none of you ever guessed), I cherish an intractable fondness and respect for HM. But some part if me Hope's she dies before the Platinum Jubilee gets rolling, so that Charles's mercifully brief reign can start, and William, the family Strong Man, starts exerting far more power over his legendarily influenceable and hapless father.

He is incredibly stupid but thinks he's smart (it's always so cringeworthy when he talks about his fears of "history repeating itself", as if he's some far-seeing sage). He is absolutely nothing without his family - just an ugly halfwit- but thinks that, completely apart from his family background, he has something of value to say. He's always denouncing his family and the principle of privilege but then lists his surname as "His Royal Highness".

There is no measure that could be taken against Harry that I would find excessive.

Why, oh why do the BRF not insist on NDAs for newly incoming family members? Every single person marrying in, to someone descended from the current monarch, needs to ordered to sign this. Especially those marrying working senior royals; no NDA, no place in the family, PERIOD.

Taking a step further, the blood family members who grow up to be working royals should also have to sign these, when they reach majority age. Otherwise, no BRF-related family perks. Call it a requirement of the job in the modern age. It would head off a lot of this type of drama.

For those who say there's no precedent: it's been rumored that the wealthy and highly famous have already begun quietly doing this in their own families. Rich UK movie and rock stars, esp those with many children by various partners who would have cause for disgruntlement, allegedly do this.

"You don’t need to be blessed with a particularly brilliant memory to recall that when Prince Harry and Meghan Markle announced they were leaving the royal family, they said that they were motivated in large part by a desire for greater privacy.

Indeed, on one of the temporary websites they set up to keep their fanbase apprised of their transition, they spoke of their wish to remove “the supposed ‘public interest’ justification for media intrusion into their lives.”

One has to wonder how Harry and Meghan are able to resolve the tension between that stated desire and the incredibly high profile they have maintained ever since their departure from the royal family, culminating in the news Monday that Prince Harry is to publish “an intimate and heartfelt memoir.”" --Daily Beast

One has to wonder?

I don't think there will be much more BRF bashing; according to the statement he released (quoted in the link at R61), it's going to be full of his great insights gained by being an orphan, an unwilling royal, a toy soldier, a husband to a social climber with a black mother, and a father. That ghostwriter and the editor better be good or it's going to be a cringey classic on par with Finding Freedom.

He’s an orphan in his own twisted, vindictive mind, maybe part of his fantasy even. Even his stans have to admit the couple never wanted any privacy, in fact quite the opposite. They want to invade their own privacy then blame all of their personal failures, defects, and shortcomings on family and everyone else.

I think the tabloids are, again, as bad as the Harkles themselves. There's Dan Wootton bawling that this is The End for Harry and his blood family - already they're predicting ugly stuff in the book about Camilla . . . I seriously doubt Harry has anything of the kind in mind. The RF bashing hasn't really done him any favours, all he wants is so much money that he never has to do much thinking about anything ever again, including whether Papa is going to cut him out of the Will.

Are the family disgusted? Sure. They're also well rid of the Harkles, although the price must seem a bit steep at times.

I agree with poster upthread that Harry's own announcement makes it (alarmingly) clear that he's planning a self-worshipful book to impress the world with his enlightened maturity and egalitarianism ("No matter where we come from, we have more in common . . .!" Translation: buy this because of my royal name, I know you wouldn't otherwise, but, really, social status doesn't matter, even as I, a functionally illiterate dullard, take $20 million to the bank because of the Prince I was born!").

They were headed down this path before the Queen gave them permission to marry. She took a chance on them as a couple, gambled, and lost. But over the years, it will, I think, become apparent that not too much was lost.

The book won't overshadow the Platinum Jubilee.

The Palace probably has some nice contingency plans in place for suing Harry's arse to the wall or exposing Meghan's bullying ways or even better, her sex tape . . .

If they don't, they're fools and don't deserve the throne.

The tabs make bank on the Harkles and their "feud" with the BRF. The Harkles make bank on their connection to the BRF and the tabs helping keep that before the public. Little to choose between there.

William and Kate will go on their way, ranking high up in the popularity polls (that latest you.gov poll is amusing, to say the least), headed toward the throne.

Big funeral for the Queen, Charles then spending years trying to look as if he belongs on it and pretending not to know or care that everyone is treating his son and heir like the real Sovereign . . .

The only thing remarkable about Harry and Meghan is their great good fortune, given their astounding lack of genuine likability, intelligence, or talent.

Yes, they'll get rich. It's too bad, but worse people have gotten rich in this shitty world.

If I had a genie with a lamp, I'm not sure who I would get rid of first: the Harkles or the tabloids.

I suppose I could waste two of three wishes on both, but . . .

This is what TQ has to grasp. It is no longer a "private family matter" when Harry's actions affect the UK/CW. It has gone past a family matter into the realm of government intervention. If TQ is unwilling or unable to take the necessary steps to deal with Harry then the government must. Yes, she conferred titles on Harry's and now she must take them away. This must be made clear to her. The monarchy is constitutional not absolute. Harry has not only insulted his family and the institution he has insulted the British people and that is where the line was crossed. The monarchy only exists with the consent of the people and the people want the titles removed. Harry and Meghan are not going to get any worse than what they are. The Prime Minister can make the announcement.

The RF is treating Harry like the tiresome brat he is. Doing anything else, especially re the government, will only serve to elevate what is essentially a spasm of adolescent spite into something important.

In an odd way, it would finally show Harry that He Really Matters!

Royal "insiders" saying the Queen might now withdraw the Harkles' Jubilee invitation

Offsite Link
by Anonymousreply 136Last Tuesday at 2:11 PM

The Queen and the Royal Family have already won the only battle that matters. The Queen, William and Kate, and even Edward and Sophie are all respected and liked by the UK public. Even Charles and Camilla are accepted, if not loved. Harry and Meghan are despised by those who most support the Royals, and get support only from those who would like to scrap the monarchy anyway. The future of the monarchy is secure, despite Harry’s attempts in the oprah interview to shame his family into giving in to his every whim.

I expect the book will contain more of the same tone-deaf story of Harry’s unearned privilege, and insatiable desire for more honours, cash and status for him and his family. We’ll be regaled with stories of his great evolved spirit in marrying a black woman, and ugly insinuations about the “racism” of his family and the British public (conveniently forgetting the delight felt across the nation at the time of his marriage).

We’ve heard this before. I’m sure he’ll tell the story of Diana, in his own self-serving way and in the process invading the privacy of at least Charles and William, who will be unwilling and unable to respond.

Harry’s poor education (and allegations of cheating) which cost at least £500,000, his miraculous acceptance as a trainee helicopter pilot with such poor exam results, his drug taking and his Nazi uniform and racist statements will be glossed over or excused. And the public will read all this nonsense in the tabloids which Harry and Meghan have declared war on. His story will be reported, and forgotten within a week.

Harry and Meghan have turned themselves into an irrelevance, and the Royal Family currently have an effective strategy which will keep them that way. They depend on the Palace fighting back: it’s the only way they can generate publicity.

The Queen would be wise to stick to her current strategy. When the book appears, release a very similar version of the Oprah statement. Declare that *recollections may vary”, deny them further publicity, and move on.

This is why you have to be careful reading the tabloids. The Queen didn't invite the Harkles and their kids ON TO THE BALCONY OF BP. She may or may not have extended a polite invitation to participate in the celebrations, such as a service in the Abbey, but the idea that she'd have them back on the balcony at the Platinum Jubilee is berserk.

So the DM rushes to make the most out of the new fracas, saying "palace insiders" are talking to the DM about what the Queen is thinking and feeling, when, in fact, she'd never have let on to anyone who would have given the DM the time of day.

No one even knows if that Platinum Jubilee invite was real. The Palace declined to comment.

She'd have sacked anyone she suspected of giving the DM the time of day.

The DM knows the Palace is going to ignore all the "palace insiders claim" stories.

The BBC Lilibet contradiction that came directly from the Palace was a rarity. That one was obviously driven by the Queen's anger at Harry's lies. Ditto the contradiction of the video call lie. And then came the Duchy of Cornwall financial report showing Harry had lied about that, too

Harry's told more lies than Pinocchio in the last year, but, hey, if his lies sell books, publishers don't care.

They were NEVER headed onto that BP balcony unless it was to get pushed off or by Princess Anne whilst everyone else was looking up at the RAF flyover.

Harry didn't tell the family that he'd already written the book, but he had threatened them with writing a book before this ( according to ITV) , so why were they taken by surprise with this news?

They were taken by surprise because in Harry's ongoing extortion bid, he's been trying to get the family to give his children titles and give him money. He's clearly been saying "If you don't give me these things I will write a book and THEN you'll be sorry" and they were probably telling him "Ok, so long as you don't write a book and neither does your wife, we can consider giving you these things."

Harry was going to wait until he got the title guarantees for his kids and the money, and THEN, only after that was achieved, he would surprise the Palace by dropping his finished book on the anniversary of Diana's death next year.

This way he would have got his 20 million advance, along with his revenge, WHILE getting the titles and family money, all at the same time.

I don't believe anybody said anything about anybody's skin color.

First of all, Meghan isn't black and she looks Spanish or Portuguese. If her own skin color doesn't even make her black, it's illogical for anyone to think she would have a child with a white guy who would not be visibly white.

Secondly, to the extent that they even knew Meghan was descended from a black mother, the family would have been delighted. After all, it provides cover from the attacks by Labour and SJWs in the UK media. My guess is that as the family grew to dislike Meghan for her behavior, they always thought to themselves, "Well, at least she's partly black, so at least we get that out of having to deal with her."

The baby comments are just another Harkle lie. In the book Harry will name someone, and it will be whomever he is most furious at. Camilla, possibly, but I'm betting on him naming William.

Wootton's sources can't be too good if they told him the Queen had specifically intended th eff Harkles to be up on that balcony.

None of you know who those sources are, and why the way, journos like Wootton freely "enhance" what sources serve up.

Exhibit A: Wootton's source says someone who works as the Queen's Private Secretory's third P.A. heard his boss muttering that HM was in a fine tizzy over Harry's latest, and he wouldn't be surprised if HM decided not to have them over for the Platinum Jubilee.

Wootton then writes that the Queen could be rescinding her invitation to have the Sussexes and their children on the balcony with her at the Platinum Jubilee!!!!

Despite the fact that the Queen would never have let that slip to anyone if she was planning it, she's far too smart for that. No one knows who she's planning to have on that balcony, especially given that in 2012 she ONLY had the direct heirs out there for the Diamond Jubilee.

No one who'd talk knows what she's planning.

Including Wootton's "excellent sources".

And it's not rocket science to guess and then trumpet that Charles and the BRF are sick to death of the Sussex antics.

They take a little hint served up by a source and then blow it up.

The BRF aren't paying extortion to Harry and if the Queen didn't take the titles when they left, she was never going to take them. It's clear she made the decision to leave Harry what was left of his royal balls when they left. Charles stopped funding them in summer 2020. As for the kids' titles, that remains to be seen.

Wooton has been proven correct over and over again, but believe whomever and whatever you like, r191.

No one cares.

by Anonymousreply 192Last Wednesday at 2:54 AM

R192 Remembet when Doria was coming for Christmas? And when the Queen was going to throw Meghan a birthday party up at Balmoral?

Wootton knows that if the headline isn't exciting enough, the info it's based on isn't worth shit.

Yes, he got the Megxit scoop, I suspect leaked by the Sussexes themselves so they could claim they had no choice but to make the announcement themselves and blindside the Queen.

Why do I infer this?

Because Woorton sent them the story for confirmation and gave the two cunts 10 days to respond. Of course, they didn't. Oddly, they remained totally mute, and got exactly what they wanted - the ability to blame others for the behaviour they'd planned all along.

This stuff isn't as cut and dried as you think. And employees know the tabs have deep pockets and will pay for juicy gossip. So, perhaps, they enhance the goods just enough. No one "proves" anything to Wootton before he pays for it. If it's true enough, and the screaming headlines vet the clip CV ks and revenue the paper wants, no one is going to quibble about the fact that actually HM never intended the Sussexes to be ON the balcony with her.

That's the way this game is played.

I'm sure Wootton is well-connected. So are Palmer, Kay, Tominey, and the test of the top tier RR's.

But that doesn't mean every word they run with is the Whole and Nothing Bur.

I'm just suggesting that we have a tendency not to scrutinise the shit coming from these tabloid artists with anything like the care we'd give a menu whilst meeting friends for dinner.

No one in her right mind, knowing how dire the standing of the Harkles is in England, would any more have had them up there than Prince Andrew.

That assertion should have been the first red flag of dressed up for maximum clicks info.

Meghan and Harry Stir the Pot - Part 5 has been paywalled. Just to let you know another was created at the same time, only written Part FIVE. Look it up, don't create yet another Part 6 -SIX.

Harry isn't moving on because he needs to milk his Mum's name and his family's blood for money. Twenty-five years and poster upthread said no one should tell him when to "move on"? Do you know how many people lose relatives in vehicle accidents over a year's time?!

Angela Levin wrote that bit before she saw fully what Harry and Meghan were planning unleash on his family, the lies they told, and the absolute lack of any compunction when they were caught in those lies. They were just married in 2018.

Levin followed Harry for years before writing that profile of him. Then she saw what happened to him when he found his soulmate, La Do You Know Who I Am? Markle, who encouraged him to feel important, as important as big bro, and to feel justified in all his rage and envy, because it got her what she wanted: the rich high-profile English husband she'd been hunting for since 2015-2016.

His milking of his mother's name and death at this point is nothing short of macabre.

I can't imagine Random House's legal department is going to suffer Harry's need to play his family by spinning unsubstantiated tales about his mother's death or ascribing blame to an individual or a group beyond "the paparazzi" and Henri Paul. There's the pesky little matter the Paget report and the result of the coroner's inquest.

He might blame Earl Spencer who refused to provide summer lodging for his sister (Because he didn't want the paps around Althorp. Not unreasonable) But beyond this Harry has to be careful because it may come back to bite him when it will be pointed out that Diana had made deals with the paps to provide them with photo opportunities. Or how William had begged his mother not to go and disapproved of the Fayed association. I'm sure there's more unsavory stuff that can come out if Harry pursues the blame angle. In the very least Diana's history of breaking up marriages and stalking (Will Carling, Oliver Hoare) will be revisited and her judgement questioned and at worst her saintly image tarnished. Have Harry and his ghost writer thought it through this far?

by Anonymousreply 216Last Wednesday at 1:54 PM

Diana had been showing off for the paps on the Al Fayed's (rented) yacht. She was chasing after media coverage, sticking it to Charles and the surgeon who'd dumped her. The paps who hunted her down in Paris were mostly North Africans as the Al Fayed connection had stirred up interest in her in Arab countries.

r193 is so completely wrong on her version of how she thinks "the game is played".

[quote] Yes, he got the Megxit scoop, I suspect leaked by the Sussexes themselves so they could claim they had no choice but to make the announcement themselves and blindside the Queen.

You think Wooton was the person they leaked it to? Or, you think they leaked it to the household and the household kept schtum? No. They were in the middle of using the idea of Megxit as their 1st extortion plan: Either give us money and give Archie a title or we will leave. What the family didn't know is that while in negotiations for this, the H's had already arranged their exit. Wooton found out and asked them for confirmation. They spent the next ten days trying to speed up their extortion, failed, and then blindsided the Queen with the announcement.

[quote] And employees know the tabs have deep pockets and will pay for juicy gossip. So, perhaps, they enhance the goods just enough. No one "proves" anything to Wootton before he pays for it.

Bitch, money isn't the currency the palace staff use with the newspapers. Wooton doesn't "pay" his informers, he is now in their debt. Next time they need a story spun a certain way, they contact journos to whom they have given scoops.

By the way, it's well-known that the Queen did invite the Harkles up to Balmoral. She invites all the grandchildren. Not to invite them would have been a slight that wanna-be-victim Meghan would have used with relish.

The public is already sick of their Bad BRF song and dance.

The bawling of the tabloids about the enraged family and Last Nail in the Coffin was just more media hype.

I think it was manipulative of him and Meghan to name their daughter Lilibet.

Some wives bring out the best in their husband (e.g. Kate or the Queen Mum) and others bring out their worst (cough meghan cough).
