Sadly no R3. Like in the US, it’s legal in the UK for “journalists” to smear celebrities as long as it’s couched as “opinion.” They do it to sell ads or increase viewers/readers, as no one ever went poor pandering to the small-minded xenophobia and racism of the British public.

Meghan called the paps every time (5 times in total, I believe) they photogaphed her "off duty", but told Harry that she felt hounded by them in order to trigger his Diana paranoia and begin to work that lever of control on him.
UK paps will NEVER pap Harry or William or their significant others off-duty without an ok or an invitation. The couples have to be at an event or an engagement in order to be considered fair game. What they initially did to Kate was considered a breach of the agreement they made after Diana's death, and the papping of her basically died out after a few years of Kate getting horrifically hounded and after the Levison Report rewriting the rules of media intrusion.
By the time Meghan came on the scene there was zero papping, and the 2 times she was papped in the UK, she was either standing outside an esthetitician she was promoting, or there was one time when she called them to photograph her with an Eco logo on her bag, to burnish her activist credentials.
The time she called them in Canada, Harry was in London. She was wearing false eyelashes while merely "walking the dog". The other time she was papped in California, she was with Harry, being picked up on the street from a famous dentist. That building has an underground parking, so it was clear they were doing publicity for the doctor. The last time she was papped, Harry was also in England, and the clothes she was wearing were being merched on Meghan's Mirror within the hour. All planned.
None of this is a surprise as she has a long history of calling in the Paps:

Harry has a new idea for Netflix...
To stay relevant and be part of the queen's 70th anniversary on the throne in 2022, Harry is planning a documentary that will involve notables and the average person who have met, come in contact and/or interacted in some manner with the queen throughout her reign.
It could have a commercial appeal and be popular with the public. It's strange that the institution the Markles want to destroy is the subject matter they want to celebrate...to make money of course. The queen could put a kibosh on the documentary by telling world leaders not to speak with Harry and his team.

R50. It could work. However, if Harry's memoir scheduled for release next year is a bombshell damaging the monarchy or the royal family, notable world figures will be reluctant to speak with Harry. He would get plenty of common people to speak with him, but the public aren't interested in the opinions of the average person for a documentary.

There's a soldier who served in Afghanistan who has a YouTube channel and posted about Harry's non-existent military service. He had to be accompanied everywhere by bodyguards and spent all his time playing computer games. A bunch of other soldiers have chimed in about how useless Harry was. His plan to make a documentary about Invictus - which Harry (as figurehead) created by copying games done by the US military - is pissing them off: Harry has no plans to pay anybody for their participation. He just wants to make money off other people's suffering.

Her Maj is taking several risks if she agrees to see them: First, they're likely to pull some bullshit, either recording it or lying about what was said in the meeting to drive forward their BRF extortion plan, and second, public feeling is SO strong against them in Britain that the Queen could lose significant amount of public support for being seen to indulge them.
Many Britons are so disgusted with the Harkles that even formerly ardent Royalists now take the attitude of "Either they're cut out of the BRF completely, or they're tacitly accepted by the BRF, and if it's the latter, then the BRF aren't what I thought they were and therefore, fuck the BRF."
Read the top comment below the article, which has 14,845 likes - that's basically what it says.
If I were the Queen, I would not only not see them, but make it quietly known that I won't see them, so that the public are left in no doubt that the Harkles behaviour is in no way sanctioned by her.

It’s a bit odd that the press keeps reporting that the Queen is/was so keen to see Archie, although this has died down with Lilibet. She has never been sentimental about babies. She strikes me as the kind of grandmother who enjoys the grandkids more as they become older and have things to say and are easier to engage with. I think she has accepted that she will never really know her American grandchildren, due to her advanced age, the distance and oh yes, their parents.

The Queen has always been terrific with her grandchildren. Every Summer at Balmoral she would run around with them, there are videos online and she's great. They say Balmoral used to turn into a big grandkids' slumber party with the Queen (although I 'm sure she didn't sleep with them).

The racist family member was obviously Phil the Greek but they had to deny it because everybody knows it was Phil the Greek or risk the Queen refusing to ever speak to them again or - more importantly - ever give them any money.
Unlike Meg's demented fanbase, I have followed the royal family's doings since Diana married Charles. Charles was in fact much closer to Harry than to William. Charles overindulged Harry partly because William rebelled against him. Diana used Will as her confidant which wasn't fair to a teenage boy. She pretty much ignored Harry. So Charles tried to make up for her neglect.
People forget Diana rarely saw those boys after they started school. She only had 50% custody of them during school vacations. And when she did, she would drag them off for photo ops - McDonalds, theme parks, charity visits. Diana's problems with the paparazzi were of her own creation. Like leaking constantly to the Daily Mail to try to control the narrative.

The royals probably wouldn't get involved in the Netflix content even if they hadn't done Oprah, as there would be all sorts of accusations of cash for access and making money off their titles, which as you can see from the current scandal is a big no no. But who knows with these ding dongs, they probably thought they could talk the queen in to her first on camera actual interview.
With the "royal racist" they couldn't even keep their stories straight in the actual interview and Meghan admitted she hadn't even heard the comment. There's also a rumor going around that it wasn't actually a member of the BRF but maybe one of Harry's maternal relatives or close friends.
They probably will name someone at some point but considering their lies I'd need to see a signed witness statement from god before I believed it.

What's interesting is that the TV-movie last night--which was of course incredibly sympathetic to them (it looked like either it was made with their collaboration, or made to flatter them since Lifetime thinks that's what its audience wants)--did make them seem incredibly oversensitive to minor slights.
If they were left off the program of Commonwealth Day (since it was their last event as royals), or if the Palace remained quiet if anyone said anything offensive about them online, they reacted like someone had thrown acid in their faces.

Meghan claimed the royal family made racist remarks about Archie.... to Harry. Then when Harry was allowed into the interview he said it was one person who wondered what their future kids would like... before they married.
The person was probably wondering if Meghan could breed out the ginger gene. Meghan who passed for white her whole life (only white friends, boyfriends, joined a white sorority at college) decided to play the racist card to suck up to Oprah.

Officially R164 because social media (well all media according to Harry) is the root of all evil and people are mean to them on the internet. They must issue "global press releases" on their website every time they have an announcement. And yet they personally phone to coordinate with some of the nastiest Sussex Squad trolls who bragged about doxxing people and a 2 minute look at their timelines would have shown this.
Unofficially it's possibly because Instagram won't let them transfer their 10 million followers on the still there Sussex Royal account to an Archewell account and they'd never get that number back again manually and that would be humiliating.
If it was because SM was evil they'd have deleted the Sussex Royal account 18 months ago.

They were the ones who issued an incredibly entitled half in half out plan without having agreed it first. If they hadn't announced it to the media and worked it out in private then they might have got more of what they wanted.
Whilst they were never going to surpass the Cambridges in importance they were still being given important jobs and would do so for the next 20 years at least. They just couldn't make billionaire money whilst doing it which was actually mentioned in their initial statement and couldn't say or do whatever they want.

I have no liking or respect for MM but I see her point of view. She had had a pretty great life in Toronto - a good job, friends, a local celebrity bf. Due to her behaviour, background (NOT race), and personal style, some of the important players in the BRF and the Palace - William, Kate, Camilla, the old courtiers - had her number from the start and had the knives out for her. The rest were just cold; you can see it on everyone's face at the wedding. Working in that family business must have seemed like a lifelong prison sentence to her and she started hatching a Plan B.
Harry was hurt, offended and angry at his family's reception of his chosen bride, plus his lifelong resentment of his lesser position because of his place in the birth order, so it was easy to get him to go along with her plan.
BUT- MM and Harry being who they are, they fucked it up, and it quickly devolved into a failed blackmail and extortion attempt. And here we are....

She did appear to have a great life in Toronto R188 but it clearly wasn't enough for her. She ditched the celebrity chef who introduced her to all the "Toronto elite" around the time she she her sights on Harry. Also her show was in it's last couple of years and her more important co star wanted to leave with the possibility that would have to mean a Rachel Zane exit at the same time. She was also in her mid/late 30s and would be looking for a new job.
I think a lot of his family had her number from the start but there were reports Charles took to her. Certainly whilst he was paying the bills even Finding Freebies referred to him as Meghan's second father. HM also made the effort to give her some patronages related to her interests and look her on a personal engagement early designed to show her public approval. A lot of people don't get on with the in laws but they don't live together and whilst some co-ordination is required it is possible to not have to see or deal with the other members for months at a time. We also know that there was BTS effort to find a solution to their unhappiness that wasn't what happened, like a few years in SA.
The problem is also that they both insisted that Megs wanted to jump in straight away and Harry was offended on Oprah when he relayed the suggestion that they take it easy or Meghan should think about not becoming a working member of the family. A year to get used to the UK followed by deciding it wasn't for her and leaving gracefully would have been better.
Or basically any other way than how they handled it where they want all the goodies and none of the downsides, want taxpayers to fund their security in Montecito and want to both trash the BRF and come back for all the flag waving.

Nothing more is going to be forthcoming until the Queen dies and that may be delayed like the terms of Philips bequest.

They get a signing advance and then more when they actually produce something. Netflix didn't give them $20 million, Spotify didn't give them whatever was announced as their deal. It's all a piece at a time and they have to deliver the goods.
So far they've spent a fucking fortune and they haven't delivered a thing. Lazy sods.

Then they will do what others like them have done in the past -- show up anywhere when someone will pay them. You'll see them show up at the most ridiculous places and try to continue to look regal, honorable, and socially committed, when in actuality they will be, simply, the best royals money can buy.

She’s not getting any gigs, only Harry is.
The “parental leave” is a face-saving ruse. Notice Harry jumped right on the Jill Biden Warrior Games thing. Isn’t he supposed to be spending time with his new baby and toddler son? (Yeah, I know…)

and getting paid large sums upfront (like they claim) = gigantic tax burden

Also, there was no inheritance from the Queen mother. Her will was posted publicly. I doubt there's anything coming from Phillip either. Like the QM, his whole estate likely went to the Queen.

The inheritance from The Queen Mother came in the form of Trust's set up many years before her death. They did not form part of her estate.

Remember the big tease for the "Archewell Audio" podcast? With Elton John et al? That was nine months ago. Wtf? They're not turning in their assignments!

That's a bunch of nonsense r218 . It's a well known fact that the Queen Mother was in debt for years prior to her death. There was no inheritance, there were no trusts. If you have proof please share it.

It was heavily reported at the time of her death.
It's why she was cash poor.

They can't go into debt, they'd be too susceptible to blackmail, etc. I don't think that can be true and that the Firm would let that happen as a policy matter.

R221 the Guardian's anti-monarchist so take with a grain of salt anything they publish about the royal family

R223 I think you are confusing The Guardian with The Morning Star?
While individual comment articles can be anti-monarchy the overall tone of the paper is very pro the establishment.
Which newspaper would you like an article saying essentially the same thing from?

Jesus Christ, how many fucking times is the inheritance conversation gonna happen?
Whatever he inherited, whomever he inherited, he's burning money like firewood. If he's not bringing in more, he's fucked (rich person fucked, but still)

R224 the Guardian acted as a vanity publisher for every crazy lie Bernie shills Sirota, et al. could come up with in 2019/2020. It's an Old Labour publication and republican.. with a small 'r'.

So the BRF will never let Harry fall into debt because it would leave him vulnerable to blackmail?

The BBC article similar to the Guardian above says "reportedly" we all know that means there is no concrete evidence. Try again.
