PRINCE HARRY GIVE ME SOME SECURITY IN THE U.K. Or Else I'm Going to Court!!!

Prince Harry has applied for a judicial review of a Home Office decision not to allow him to personally pay for police protection for himself and his family when they are in the UK, a legal representative for the Sussexes confirms.

This seems fair, actually. He doesn’t spend much time there anyway, and he can use his families security when he visits.

Watch out, Harry. Look what British security forces did to your mother!

by Anonymousreply 3January 15, 2022 10:51 PM

His request is actually reasonable. If he's in the UK, there's a 100% chance he's going to be visiting family. If he's willing to pay for it, he should be protected by a security team plugged into the same network as his family.

by Anonymousreply 4January 15, 2022 10:59 PM

No r2, he should not. It would cost taxpayers money, for each and every day he and his family are on UK soil. And there's not need for it. They are no longer working BRF members, but private citizens, just like their cousins Zara Tindall, and Beatrice and Eugenie, none of whom have tax-funded security.

They chose to live abroad, they chose the celebrity lifestyle they lead. It's their full responsibility to pay for their private security. It's utter tosh, the drivel re "security threats" to them and the like. What paranoia. There's no one out to get them, unless you count Prince William slipping on a balaclava to sneak up and slash their tires at night, out of sheer irritation with them.

Unlike the US, you cannot hire law enforcement as “private security” in the UK. Otherwise with all of the monied people in London, there won’t be any police left for regular people.

"He isn’t a ‘working royal’ but he does do family related public activities when he is there, like when he visited to do the Diana tribute." - In what way was the Diana tribute a royal family related public activity, r9? That was an activity of the Spencer family.

The little shit never even visits the UK and now he's trying to invent yet another excuse as to why it's all so terrible for him over here. He's been spending too much time in the US. You cannot hire police officers to offer private protection in the UK. He should just pay for private security.

So:

- under UK law, his private security isn’t allowed weapons (not just guns but mace etc).

- Harry’s statement explicitly offers to pay the cost of a public security detail so no taxpayers are affected.

- His family would be well aware of public and private (crazy loonies, etc) threats against his family.

It seems petty and unreasonable to refuse this.

by Anonymousreply 26January 16, 2022 1:48 AM

No it isn't, r26, if the rules of the Home Office bar payment by private parties to hire official police detail. Why should Harry get a special exception?

He's in no more danger than his York cousins, both of whom use privately hired and paid security when at public events. It's sufficient for them, it's sufficient for him. He's not the son of the monarch or in the close direct line of succession.

When his father becomes King, and he decides to visit the UK, they might be able to float this idea again, since he will then in fact be the child of the sitting monarch and ostensibly more of a real target. Until then: no one is looking at you, Harry.

R23, a business, political candidate, organization, etc can pay for "extra duty" officers for traffic and security. I've never heard of some mildly wealthy asshole just swanning about with a city police escort. From Peachtree, GA website:

[quote] Answer: The hourly rate is based on whether the request is for an officer to conduct general security, or if traffic control is required. A minimum of 4 hours is required. General Security is $35 per hour, Traffic Control $40 per hour, Holiday Security or Traffic Control $50 per hour, Movie Production $45 per hour, and any Road Construction/traffic control $40 per hour.

R4 That's absurd. His "family" lives by certain rules. The Met is not for personal hire. He is not a working royal and is nor entitled to special treatment. This is Harry and Meghan yet again demonstrating their increasingly obvious pathological desire to force the world to recognise their special special specialness.

Insisting that only the Met can REALLY give them the very very special security that very very special people get is a transparent and vicious attempt to remind the world that THEY ARE ROYAL!!!!!!!

I hope the Queen realises now just how foolish she was to treat Harry and Meghan as gently as she did. She was a fool not to take his title when he left.

These two are mentally I'll. They will never stop torturing his family. They're filled with poison.

As for the UK always being Harry's home - oh, is that why he's raising his kids in America as Americans?

There’s a pretty extreme difference between an armed protective detail and an unarmed one. It’s not like they just have nicer uniforms.

by Anonymousreply 36January 16, 2022 2:18 AM

I doubt he was just arbitrarily refused, or just denied an exception for no good reason. There's probably some nuance to this decision that Harry's statement isn't owning up to, in favor of WAAAH WE'RE STILL ROYAL!!!, and that we may never hear of for security reasons. But the Sussexes will absolutely let fester the narrative that the British government AND the royals all just hate them and want them dead. Oh but of course they still totally respect the lady in charge of it all.

I actually wonder if this is a sign that the Queen is still healing and not as in control as she was. The protective detail wasn’t pulled when they left for California, but instead between Philip’s funeral and the Diana statue dedication. This public announcement reminds me of Harry and Meghan pulling the trigger on their plan to move after Harry couldn’t get a meeting with his grandmother. Maybe this is another sign he’s not being allowed (by her or others) to talk to her at the moment.

by Anonymousreply 45January 16, 2022 2:31 AM

First off, this application for the security began back in September of 2021. Why are we hearing about it now? Scoop is that the DM was going to report it, and Harry’s legal representative sent out a press briefing. Likely Harry wanted most of this maneuvering out of the public sphere. The press discovered it, and Harry hastily put together something rather than it being leaked.

My take on this aligns with what a few others have said about this whole thing being A Harkle Trojan Horse. It is not as much related to the upcoming jubilee, but rather the Harkles’ diminishing $$$.

The Harkles are OBSESSED with security protection have been and likely always will be. Recall that their Megxit statement identified them as IPP (International Protected Persons) demanding the security equivalent of presidents and prime ministers. That got slapped down.

Then they moved onto Canada demanding taxpayer Canadian protection. When that pulled, like theives in the night, they fled to the USA on a private jet to couch surf in Tyler Perry’s mansion.

They have since been paying for their own private security (or Charles has?), but there was talk that they made some inquires into getting US taxpayer funded security (which was very publicly slapped down by a Trump tweet).

Now Haz knows that UK police are not for hire for personal protection. Yet, he disingenuously offers to pay for them.

This Trojan Horse is most likely a return to be acknowledged as victims who are at great risk and need to be protected by official government sources....rather than private guards. By sliding into an attempt to do so in the UK and attempting to convince the UK gov with yet again threats of lawsuit, a belief that this would be granted could then be used to convince other governments such as the US, Canada (and wherever else they deign to travel) to provide official taxpayer funded security and relieve them of the heavy financial burden of providing their own 24/7 private security.

Hope the outrage globally is enough to prevent these grifters and liars from receiving ANY taxpayer funded security.

Harry's "private" security won't be armed with guns, but they will be armed with video cameras.

by Anonymousreply 51January 16, 2022 3:44 AM

So I think people in the US probably don't understand what the stink is about:

The issue is Harry wants armed police protection (the Met we call it here) while he's in the UK. The issue is that the police, who are funded by tax payers, cannot be "loaned out." They are not a for hire service they are their for the general public's protection. The only people who get 24/7 police protection in the UK are the Queen, Charles & Camilla, and William & Kate (H&M had it when they were working royals). Princess Anne and Edward get protection when they are on state-funded duties representing the Queen. The rest of the royals (Beatrice, Eugenie, Andrew, Edward's kids, Anne kids) do not because they are private citizens.

Second Harry can hire his own private bodyguards, but under British Law they cannot be armed.We have thing in the UK called gun control hence our lack of mass shootings.

Harry is perhaps too inbred to understand once you quit a job, you can't keep the benefits package.

I'm sure if he is coming to the UK for a royal event like he did for Philip's funeral and Diana's statue unveiling, security is automatically provided anyways. And he would likely be staying at Frogmore which being part of Windsor Great Park already has security. I think these two have a complex that they are a lot more important than they actually are.

He seems obsessed with highlighting that he and his family are under threat in the UK, citing the last time he was there and was chased (by paparazzi, I assume). I'm sure private security could protect them just as well, but he wants it out in the public that they're targets and need extra special protection and that he'll pay for it.

He can't have what he wants either way, because no one gets to pay the Met police for protection, that's not how it works, and this red-headed doucheman is fully aware of that fact.

Why does he need people with access to guns and MI5/6 briefings if he's mostly worried about paparazzi?

There were reports a few weeks ago that the BRF was very upset that they were loosing long term bodyguards due to a change in how they were allocated and that they'd protested to no avail. If they have to accept what the government says then I don't see why Harry can't as well.

I'd say there is just as much chance of Beatrice and Eugenie being harassed on the street due to their father than there is Harry and they don't have protection.

R85, the Queen could indeed reinstate police protection. That is not the issue here. If she reinstates it the tax payer will be footing the bill which is likely to cause uproar. Harry wants to hire the police himself to protect him which is against British law. It would set a precedent for anyone to privately hire the police and therefore have access to intelligence etc. I would have thought under public order issues he would get police protection anyway in the same way anyone who is in danger can expect protection from the police. I don’t agree with anyone privately hiring the police but honestly think that with a bit of careful planning he would be very well protected without needing to do so.

The end of the Guardian article has more details, including the fact that the public wants Andrew to pay for his own security now, considering the situation. I know the Queen won't give Harry (or Beatrice or Eugenie or anyone else who has lost their police protection) their protection back, but the Home Office can give it, and Harry at least says he'll pay for it himself.

Andrew pays for Beatrice's and Eugenie's protection now, right? I can't find if it's police protection or not.

The Guardian and the BBC are reporting that Harry's legal rep/PR *says* his security was compromised (apparently by paparazzi trying to take photos after an event in London back in the summer?). It's really up to people to decide for themselves if that's a legitimate security issue or not. People who are much wealthier and much bigger targets than Harry spend time in London without Met security all. the. time. Harry can cover his own private security or he can stay in California, that's his choice. What he cannot do is pay the Met police to protect him in the UK (and Harry himself will be well aware of this).

[quote]I'm not usually one to jump on the whole Harry and Meghan are the devil BS, but this is so petulant on Harry's part. I'm sure if he is coming to the UK for a royal event like he did for Philip's funeral and Diana's statue unveiling, security is automatically provided anyways. And he would likely be staying at Frogmore which being part of Windsor Great Park already has security. I think these two have a complex that they are a lot more important than they actually are.

Security is not automatically provided änyways. Windsor is a very, very, very large estate. There is no way on earth it can be patrolled completely.

A stalker was arrested at his house. They get hate mail and threats. Windsor Castle just had an armed intruder. They had 160 stalkers on the lead up to their wedding. The royal family all have hundreds of stalkers. That's why they need armed security, when none of the other police are armed.

Let the Queen, Charles, William and his family go without armed security. If it's safe for Harry, it should be safe for them too.

Harry is not a working royal. His cousins, also non working royals, don’t have security. By your standard, r108, no person in the UK should have security. Harry is free to employ his own security. What he us not entitled to is security paid for by the British taxpayer, which includes their tactics and intelligence.

So why misrepresent what happened, like you did, if people need to hear the facts and decide for themselves?

After the visit Harry had with kids at Kew Gardens last year, there was a security lapse with his team and the paparazzi chased after his car.

You or one of your little friends on here said that was a lie. Is it? Because I'm finding photos of him in his car that day, while leaving Kew Gardens, taken by paparazzi.

R39 And you're the primary reason people think Sussex stans are delusional: anyone who doesn't like the two grifters is a threat to them.

Harry is insisting that he "inherited these risks at birth" and he is ipso facto entitled to this security kng with his family for the rest of his life.

He left. He luces in California. MPs get real threats like this on a daily basis and two of them were murdered in public. Yet, MPs and their families don't get the sort of total individual police protection Harrycis demanding as a right of birth.

His mother was killed by a drunk driver in Paris. His father, brother, and brother's children are the prime terrorist targets in the country. His great-uncle was killed by by the IRA. Not neo-Nazis and right wing extremists.

Harry is still being eaten up inside by his raging envy of his brother, and suing the British government is just another grandstanding attempt to feel as important as William, even though Harry abandoned his country, his job, and then spent the next two years trashing the country, institution, and family without which he'd be nobody. And in case you forgot, he and his wife were uncovered to have lied to a British court and to the British public.

And, yet, Harry still thinks he and his family merit the same treatment as his brother.

Harry can stay home in California, or pay for licences for armed guards. But insisting that the British taxpayer supported police force OWE him is anothercpije in the eye with a sharp stick. He's out to make trouble again.

It's Harry who won't stop till his brother is dead.

Fuck, what number lawsuit is this?! Christ, Schillings must have a private shrine up to them in a conference room.

The cost of police protection is astronomical. Harry had no intention of paying that every time he visits Old Blighty.

Once they allow as how Harry Windsor despite leaving and trashing the country and no longer working for the monarchy should habe it if he "pays" for it, the next step is obvious.

Harry doesn't want to come back to the UK on any terms but those of a royal prince as important as his brother.

These two people's lives are one long song of anger, petulance, victimhood, revenge, and lawsuits.

When the fuck will they stop screaming about what they're entitled to that the miserable world and miserable Britain and the miserable BRF haven't given them?

And lastly, it's one of Harry's and Meghan's fans who are the subject of a police action for threatening to stab journalist Camila Tominey and her three children to death fie criticising Meghan.

The lunatic Sussex Sqaud and their death threats and prayers for the death of the entire Cambridge family to die so Meghan can be Kween who are more worrisome. If they could do it and get away with it, they would.

This is still Harry wanting to have his cake and eat it, too.

Charles once said that Andrew's problem is "he wants to be me".

Fast forward: Andrew and Harry have ended up in the same place for the same underlying reason: angry, disgraced, exiled from the only life that gave the the status they craved.

Status is everything to males. And Andrew was his mother's darling.

It's a good thing William and Kate had three, and providence that the middle one was a girl. That should blunt the Spare shit for the younger son on the next round.

No, what Harry wants is what he is used to, as seen in this video of arriving and leave a previous engagement. He wants police escorts, stopping traffic, flanking the procession, parting the seas. With private security he is just one of the plebs on the road, with a car or two along for the ride. A paparazzi would never have had the access or opportunity to get a picture of a British prince on British soil if he was stuck in traffic like the rest of us, without the police to shoo away anyone with the audacity to get close.

r96 and r109, I write this without a shred of sarcasm : Nice try.

Nothing short of The Sussexes were spotted on the grassy knoll! And the Wuhan lab!" suffices for their way, way over-invested haters.

What r182 said, too.

Fun, bemused, disinterested pointless bitchery and gossip grounded in some credibility (the best kind) isn't possible on these threads because of Sussex Haters.

One tell of their unhinged nature is the insistence that the Sussexes would face booing in London. No, YOU would boo them. You're projecting.

Massive indifference and apathy to their presence on the part of the London public is what the Sussexes actually fear and would be hurt by because it would be the death knell to their "influencer" (ugh) desires. Rational observers know that.

The Sussexes know that too. I don't discount security their security concerns. That's for others to determine. I'm just a spectator.

Speaking of spectating, assuming I outlive Q E II, for her funeral, a nuclear crow-bar wouldn't be able to pry me from my TV, and, of course, from the DL threads.

Also, I do truly empathize with him regarding the risk he inherited at birth, he didn’t ask for this, he didn’t ask to be Royal…and as a result he faces risks. But what about people born into a religious or racial minority in a country where they are persecuted through no fault of their own but due to the lottery of birth? Or woman who KNOW their lives are in danger from abusive partners, request help from the police/justice system and walk away with a piece of paper (restraining order) to protect themselves, did they ask for this? How many women are murdered when everyone knew they were in danger, should they get police protection?

How far do we go?? Or do we accept that life is inherently unfair?? Welcome to normal life Harry, it’s great isn’t it.

Those people have terrible, difficult, unfair lives on an individual level. The slice of this they don’t face is what’s delivered by his fame: risk of kidnapping them or their little kids, risk of someone mentally ill glomming on to the online frenzies about how Harry and Meghan are evil, risk of someone mentally ill who becomes a deranged stalker, risk of someone attempting to retaliate for his military service as a show of revenge for the war, and yes, risk of physical danger created by paparazzi frenzies.

That doesn’t make Harry and Meghan martyrs and Saints. It just means there is a slice of risk to them and their kids that is best prevented by armed guards. They know how costly that would be and they’re asking for it and willing to pay regardless. They’ll likely only be in the UK for short and temporary periods of time, some amount of which will be spent with people who are already under Met protection It seems quite reasonable for them to get this.

Don’t forget, it also puts the UK in a terrible position if someone manages to kidnap one of Harry’s family. I know the Klan Grannies think the royal family and the general public would just laugh and not care, but it would put a lot of pressure on the UK government to give terrorists or the like what they want.

Harry's position in line to the throne isn't relevant here. Beatrice and Eugenie apparently had their protection taken away because they weren't doing any work for the crown, same with Harry.

The issue here is that Harry is due to be at a large-scale event where others are already going to be under Met protection, and he wants it as well due to the extraordinary press he and his family have been getting from tabloids and very angry people who are unhealthily emotionally invested in hating them, and who are literally blaming him for the Queen's declining health and for her husband's demise.

There are people on this thread literally saying they want Harry et al. kidnapped or dead. Someone just said it as I was typing this.

That's why he wants to pay himself for the kind of extra security others at these events will already be getting anyway. It's not a crazy request. What's crazy is that things have descended to this point in the first place.

"Fun, bemused, disinterested pointless bitchery and gossip grounded in some credibility (the best kind) isn't possible on these threads because of Sussex Haters." - More of the same bullshit from r186. Harry is a private citizen, by his own choice. He is demanding things that no other private citizen in the UK has. We're fed up of him and his demands for special treatment in the UK. That's not "hate", it just means that he is no longer someone of national significance.

by Anonymousreply 196January 16, 2022 1:19 PM

Are you saying that everyone in the UK who gets death threats should have a police security detail, r195? Because that would be an awful lot of people.

"The issue here is that Harry is due to be at a large-scale event" - The entire event is going to be under heavy police and military security. Harry doesn't need any special individual security to be present at that event. And we also don't give a shit that the snivelling little twerp who basically told the entire UK to fuck off wants to fly in for two days again to make sure he gets seen and has his photo taken at this special event, and then fly off again.

by Anonymousreply 197January 16, 2022 1:23 PM

I get that he feels he needs armed security but he can’t have it both ways. He left there knowing that security wasn’t part of the deal. They both seem truly exhausting, it’s always something with them. What is the gun prevalence in the UK? Can’t be too high if private security can’t carry. I don’t know the current feelings of UK on them, but in the US nobody seems to care. This is not the 80s/90s celebrity culture anymore.

I’m venturing to guess with their house on the market and not getting attention they craved, they might want to head back to the UK. All their projects seemed to fizzle out. They overestimated the public’s interest in them. Again, celebrity culture is not what it used to be, especially for those that seemingly don’t do very much.

Bloody hell people, you're all going to give yourselves heart attacks if you keep this up. The level of irrationality on both sides of the argument when it comes to the Sussexes is ridiculous.

So lets lay out the facts here:

1) Harry wants access to MET Police Protection when in the UK which he is willing to pay for. The issue is, the Police in the UK cannot be leased out to private citizens. Now, former Prime Ministers (and even some minor royals) can have access to retired police protection but this is a private service which they pay out of pocket, and who cannot be armed while in the UK. Harry is allowed to do this, but apparently he wants active Police officers who can stop traffic, get access to intelligence, be armed etc. Regardless of your opinion on the matter, this will not happen. There is nothing stopping Harry from hiring his own security when in the UK, but just not active state agents.

2) Who gets state funded police protection is decided by the Home Office not the royal family. At present the Prime Minister, Queen, Charles, Camilla, William and Kate get full police protection. Other royals and Cabinet ministers get police protection on an "as needed" basis. I'm sure the Queen probably has some say in the allocation of the forces assigned to the royals, but she is very well-known for hating excessive security, she knows the whole point of being royal is to be seen.

3) Royal security is a controversial issue in the UK. The reason being, it's paid for by the taxpayers and there is always a backlash whenever the royals are believed to be wasting money. The backlash in the UK at Harry getting state funded protection when visiting (even if he is paying for it) would be overwhelmingly negative. I mean just the response in the UK media today is decidedly against him. He's being viewed as a prat here. Harry and Meghan are no longer popular here.

4) There is a fundamental cultural difference between the UK and US in terms of security. Americans are use to seeing their leaders surrounded by security when in public. That doesn't happen in the UK. Our public figures are remarkably accessible. I mean I can walk into my MP's office and have a responsible expectation of being allowed to talk to her face to face. Despite MPs having been murdered in recent years, that has not changed. Even the Queen, who is the most famous person on Earth, had remarkably little security. Yes, there is risk for any public figure but Brits are generally very pragmatic about that sort of thing.

Those are the facts. I'm sure people will try to spin them but I'm sure people will try to spin them to suit their argument.

This is pure speculation like everyone else, but my guess is they want to make a big splash in the UK like last time with events and photo ops. But they are only entitled now to royal protection when they doing something in their "official" royal capacity. Since they likely aren't being asked to do much in any official royal capacity, they won't have RPOs to go clean out the riff raff if Meghan wants her picture taken at Hub Kitchen, or if Harry wants to go give a speech somewhere about how he used to be a military hero, or if they want Archie and Lili to take pics with their "friends" at an underprivileged children's camp, or they want to attend some big fancy red carpet style event. And if they can't do all that (and without enough security they can't because even if they are paranoid they do have legit concerns), why bother with any trip? They sure as shit have no interest in a quiet family visit (BTW they are also covered by the umbrella of the Queen's security when they are with her), so it's certainly not worth the effort just for beloved Granny to see her namesake for the first and maybe the only time.

I think in America, having a boat load of security is seen as a status symbol. The more bodyguards you have around you, the more important you are. The UK is not like that at all. The Queen used to ride out in Windsor Great Park with only one police man. I've also seen people like Olivia Coleman and Idris Elba out and about with no security. The Brits are far more pragmatic about stuff.

R274 - This is another panto set up to cover the familiar hallmarks of Sussex PR agenda:

He and his lawyers know the offer to "pay for it" is bogus because the taxpayer funded Met police force aren't available for lease or hire by private citizens.

The Home Office today already stated that it did not accept Harry's argument.

Therefore, the whole thing must have been set to satisfy other motives. Now, what could those be?

Painting themselves as victims (check)

Using the courts and legal system to make the point (check)

If they're lucky, blackmailing Charles into paying for their security so he can meet his grandchildren (check) and avoiding another nasty legal battle JUST when the BRF is steeling itself for another one (check, and oh, what amazing timing!)

Harry still insisting that even though he chucked the job, trashed and lied about his employers whom he will never again represent, accused his father of genetic pain and racism, leaked the gist of phone calls to American journalists to try to threaten his family into "addressing [their] concerns, and is raising his 7th and 8th in line kids in America, HE'S JUST AS IMPORTANT AS WILLIAM!!!!! (check)

When they're told to fuck off, they announce that without that security, they can't possibly return to Britain (and, therefore, can skip facing the family and public that hate their guts - and blame other people for what is, in actuality, a carefully executed retreat on the order of Dunkirk (check)

It's quite beautifully laid out, isn't it? Harry gets more of his envious vicious rocks off, they get to moan about their victimhood again, flounce off in a huff (again), and flex their legal muscle.

Why, at this point, Harry could probably argue the case himself!

They're so damn transparent.

Especially as, if they were invited, it was only for private events and it was made clear that there would be no balcony or other appearances where the Sussexes could use Baby Lilibet and Archie to distract attention from the Queen, steal the headlines, and burnish their tarnishing celebrity and royal identiy (check)

How do you know his cousins aren’t getting death threats? Or that Harry is, r269? The biggest threat he had in the UK was having a photographer follow him.

Were Harry receiving death threats in the UK, the government would know and presumably, would forward that knowledge.

Journalists in the UK often receive death threats, yet don’t get Met security. Harry is no different.

[quote]His cousins aren't getting death threats.

You mean, his cousins WEREN'T getting death threats. Because it's entirely likely that the Yorks are getting very angry threats now that their father has been stripped of his privileges due to his legal problems over his gross actions.

The pap activity around both has increased the past week, Bea had pap photos published twice this past week, once when she was out on a private, unattended stroll with her new baby.

[quote]And it's not about what ranking he is. It's about whether he deserves to be safe or not. And you don't think he deserves appropriate security. You actually think he and his family deserve to get hurt or killed? Because they're not working royals.

Of course they don't deserve harm or to be killed. Get off your exaggerated Mary! high horse there. No one thinks they don't deserve appropriate security, even their detractors. The question at hand is 1) what is "appropriate" security levels for the non-working #6 in line and 2) that they pay for their own.

Harry has offered his own funds to solve #2, but the issue is he doesn't want private security, he wants to pay for Met officers, which is a non-starter. A no-go, not allowed. Which goes back to #1, what's appropriate for him and his family. He doesn't seem to agree with any of the prevailing communal opinion in the UK, that the need isn't that great or justified.

by Anonymousreply 278January 16, 2022 11:09 PM

Dai Davies, the former Head of Scotland Yard's royal protection unit, was interviewed by BBC today and he told them that if there ever were a credible threat against Harry or his family, the Met would take action. Harry's claims that he is left out in the dark with no access to UK intelligence are bogus. If there was actual intelligence (aka a creditable threat) he would be made aware of it.

This is 100% setting the stage to "excuse" them for the Jubilee Celebrations (at most they were probably only invited to the Jubilee Service of Thanksgiving and not to the trooping the colour or balcony appearances) while enhancing their victim narrative to people dumb enough not to look into the actual situation.

He knows the UK public hates him and that he'll be kept far from the really BIG EVENTS of the Platinum Jubilee

He needs a good excuse not to show his face, because the media here will be slyly wondering not to sotto voce WHY he isn't there . . .

Who, and where, are these people? Outside of the confines of the fringes of DL threads and other online outlets. What "very angry people" are such a threat to them, offline? The main emotion from the UK citizenry is boredom, indifference or plain irritation at their endless dramas and accusations.

"Extraordinary press" -? They sat for an hours-long, no-holds-barred tabloid-level tell-all with OPRAH of all people, during which they levelled all kinds of personal, mostly unsupportable accusations at his high-level family (none at hers, natch). And they weren't expecting to become media heat scores after that? It was part of the entire point of the event, to get press attention and raise profiles.

Everything they do is planned and timed for maximum tabloid and media attention. The interviews, the leaks via their mouthpieces, the books, the endless litigation. They are experts at this. They are simply incapable of sitting back and living private, productive lives.

R286 Because the UK is literally Somalia

I think there are multiple issues at play here and I think the biggest one is the Sussexes running out of cash . They live a lifestyle way above what they have in available income , they are merely rich , not rich rich . They want to offload their security costs and to do so they need their previous status back . So Harry wants the same security he had back when he was a working royal and had 24/7 RPOs . He (or better his brain by the name of M.M ) figured it'll look bad if he wants the public to pay for it so there is the offer to pay for it himself . However , what he wants to buy isn't for sale and he probably knows that (you never know with him ) . He can't hire active duty armed police officers for a private individuals , he could hire ex officers or other private security but those can't be armed . He already knows he won't succeed with this review but it lets them play the victim who were cruely denied security by evil Britain even though they nobly offered to pay for it themselves . Jubilee nope we can't come , it's not safe and it's definitely not because we can't get the money shot of Big Lilibet with little Lilibet . Should they for whatever reason manage to get those armed officers they could then try to use the argument that the UK deemed them in so much danger that they need the same type of security in the US and need the tax payers to pay for it . Sort of getting their IPP status back through the backdoor .

Then they went and fucked that up shooting their wad with Oprah for free. Royal family out, Obamas out. They need footage of the royal family, up close, and them as integral parts of the royal family to keep up the scam. As celebs in LA they just aren't giving Netflix what they want. No doubt the extra police protection was to show how important Harry is. And it backfired.

I think something is up and this up:

A) Harry and Meghan have really seemed sidelined especially with the Kate and the BRF really nailing the holidays, with Kate's 40th bday being the most recent buzz. They smell opportunity with Andrew and decide to use this security things as a flex to remind the world that they are indeed first string royal. A reminder how hard down by Harry and Megs have been treated,

B) Preemptive strike because after the Andrew scandal, HM & Co. have decided that the last thing they need is more of the wrong kind of attention and Harry/Meghan were given a no go on the Jubilee. We all know the Queen doesn't strike unless she has to and she likes to give deadlines. Maybe H & M were given some kind of ultimatum about attending which they failed or HM decided better not risk more bad publicity via Charles/William and they decided to kill two (three) birds with one stone.

C) A stretch, but could Harry and/or Meghan be testing the waters for a UK return to working royal status. They've had 2 solid years as commoners. They started out with a bang and ended up a fizzle shortly after the first year. Maybe they've realized they are nothing w/o being working royals. Unlikely but with the "not being over the moon w/ their Montecito location", maybe the location they are thinking is back to the UK

D) Harry is testing the water to go back to the UK solo.

Something is up beyond just attention whoring. As simple as being disinvited to the Jubilee or as big as returning back or trying to get back in the fold.

Yeah....a lot of rumors from those dangling tendrils threads have proven true. To add to those above, here are several more:

1) Behind the scenes of the wedding, things were a DISASTER. This was well before Tiaragate (“what Meghan wants, Meghan gets”) and the mess up regarding the plain and ill-fitting wedding/affiliated dresses (fittings problematic, bust ups with Kate/Charlotte, the head of Givenchy being fired some time after the wedding, etc.)

2) The Down Under Tour: issues with Australian officials, “tour crap”, the loss of staff following the tour for suspicious behavior on the part of the duo, MBS “blood diamond” earrings whose origin was denied, etc.

3) The Separation of The Cambridges and The Duo: during/ after the Aussie tour, the “Fab Four” were separated. The Harkles were booted from the joint foundation and from KP.

4) Rumours of bullying by Meghan of royal staff; punctuated by inordinate loss of many KP staff....

There is much more, but am being called to return to work.....

[quote] Another move to where, [R357]?

Not R357, but I have rumors from Montecito. It’s tea really, so let the record state for R355 that these are theories.

Montecito residents resent the Harkles for several reasons. One being pap intrusion as Markle calls the paps despite her protestations. Two is the fact that they tried to hustle neighbors to beef up security around the neighborhood. Three is that the staff at chez Harkle Home are not treated well (workers are friends with workers at other Montecito homes). And most interestingly four, Meghan and Katy Perry are in a tête-à-tête: Katy was surprised at the demands of motherhood. With her daughter Daisy she is one and done. Meghan took it upon herself to poke Katy by stating that one child is just a hobby. Real parenting - or a family - involves two children. Note that Markle has emphasized this by promoting this in interviews (Ellen) and at Christmas.

Most Montecito residents side with Katy. She is less abhorrent than Markle.

Given their portrayal on the Montecito local journal, it’s clear The Harkles are parodied.

Agree that it’s likely they will leave the area for several reasons: money being a big one also.

Here’s another prediction or theory:

Let the record state, that somehow, somewhere evidence of Meghan Markle’s poor behavior to subordinates will be leaked. Via a report (investigation that is ongoing). Book (Tom Bower’s expose). Court case (lawsuits aplenty) or the press (someone stepping forward).

Then there will be a deluge of reports of Markle’s abuse dating back to pre-royal days.

Markle will be canceled. Everywhere. She may eventually work her way back into society via mocking acknowledgment (a la Chrissy Tiegen), but this combined with Harry’s antics will shut them out of most all respectable situations.

It will be fascinating to see this unfold.

I'm not an American but I feel that a move to New York seems very likely. They have utterly failed in California, nobody really bought their shit and now people are beginning to see them for what they really are.

NY has the lively social scene Megdusa craves, more pap opportunities and the possibility for some kind of political move - the inly bulshitting they haven't tried yet, and the only one in their grasp - Megs is too old for acting, Harry is incapable of tying his own shoelaces, so political bulshitting is the only viable career left due to Harry's stature.

Agree R370 & R372. NYC could definitely be in their sights.

Do you recall that they oddly visited the Canadian Embassy to “thank the Canadians” for hosting their Christmas holiday shortly before Megxit? Spidey senses tingle that the Canadian Embassy visit involved far more than acknowledging Canadians. It was a trial balloon to either ask for a position or security or visa or something before they jumped ship to British Columbia. Recall photos of Meghan then with heavy perspiration stains? This was much more than a friendly chat; it seemed heavy duty.

There is the sense that the weird NYC trip in September was along the same lines. Scouting out possible next moves? Following pap photos with Bill de Blasio and Kathy Hochul, their UN visit was brief. And the photos of them exiting the UN revealed their faces to be less than pleased.

For some reason I sense undercurrents that they are seeking their next move. There is talk that they are now “not over the moon” with their home. Money issues may be a significant issue. And there is circulating talk of “returning to the UK”. For a visit? Harry only? To live?

But NYC is a good guess. They’ll need money, though. And connections.

I remember reading about one of Toronto’s hairstylists who introduced Meghan to a psychic. Apparently this person was quite sought after due to their accuracy. M’s stylist was able to finagle an appointment The psychic told Meghan she’d be moving to live in London. This was years before Harry was even on the radar. Meghan said in the joint interview with the stylist that she was thrilled and “couldn’t wait” because (she) “loved London”.

Self-awareness has never been Markle’s strong Suit. Jumping into something - or somewhere - that is not appropriate for her does not seem to stop her and it seems she rushes headlong into situations that are completely over her head. She does so with bravado.

Poor impulse control.

Actually, they tried to visit UN HQ but weren't allowed to meet the Secretary General, and ended up at the American Mission to Africa at the UN. They ac also weren't allowed to use the recording equipment they had newly tried to use during whatever little meeting they were allowed inside, and their stony faces when th had left were readable from Outer Space.

And I'm sorry to have to inform you media toffs out there that, in fact, the tabloids have broken stories that happened to be true, well before the broadsheets would touch them.

The vicious arrogance of Harry's latest temper tantrum and the details of his lawyer's statements on his behalf are being carried by every "respectable" paper in the UK. There is nothing to guess at here.

Appearing in the DM does not ipso facto mean a story is false, or they'd be out of business. They broke the story of the Wales marriage being on the rocks well before the TIMES, Telegraph. Standard, etc., finally acknowledged the obvious.

It's common sense to take phrases like "a source/royal insider close to the couple/Palace" with a grain of salt. But the fact is most of these media outlets do have channels.

Harry and. Meghan have displayed, and are yet again here displaying their borderline psychotic obsession with their status and the special treatment that they thirst for for validation.

They have provided plenty of proof. Just look at the spine of THE BENCH. It says MEGHAN THE DUCHESS OF SUSSEX in huge letters aling the entire spine but without the title of the book. You pick up a copy of ANNA KARENINA and it has the title on the left and LEO TOLSTOY on the right.

Harry and his lawyers know perfectly well that private individuals cannot hire or lease the Metropolitan Police Force. It is therefore transparent that the real aim is to get back the aura of first rank royalty by overturning his No Paid Security for Nonworking Unimportant Princes. The security bullshit is just a smokescreen.

Because, logically, if they agree he had special royal security issues, why should he pay for it?

The cost of royal security according to a story in the TIMES last year is becoming astronomical. Harry spending even a few days in London with 24/7 police protection for his entire family is a seven-figure proposition.

And then there's the question of precedent. If they break their own rule, let us say, and let Harry hire the Met, why not Bill Gates or Jeff Bezos or anyone else with lots of ego, money, and "concerns" who wants expert armed protection whilst in London?

Not to mention the fury of taxpayers who already believe there aren't enough police on the streets for THEM. Does Harry really suppose the Home Office and any "judicial review" along with Scotland Yard and the Met, don't know that?!

You don't need a PhD in psychology to see Harry yet again making a spectacle of his thwarted rage and glee at putting the boot in to his family and his country, because both OWE HIM.

And the most interesting aspect of it is that, as usual, the Suusexes end up, in their crazed attempts to remind the world how SPECIAL they are, increasing their already very high Unlikability Quotient.

You couldn't make it up.

R381 The event in the Fiji Market was organised by a UN umbrella Women's Programne that Meghan had tried to get herself made an Ambassador for whilst still a d-list actress. They refused. The minute she saw the sign on the market, she turned around and left. Women vendors had been waiting hours to see her. There's a photo or video somewhere of one of her aides crying on the limo out.

The story was part of Lacey's recently "re-edited" book about William and Harry. The TIMES printed excerpts from the Lacey book, one of which contained the Fiji Market story.

Meghan filed a press complaint against the TIMES for printing it.

The press complaint went nowhere.

Harry yet again sent letters through his lawyers to the BBC and ITV threatening (yet again) legal action calling the story "defamatory".

And then, the Palace refused to back his claim up directly to the BBC, which printed THAT?

[quote]I knew/ had a business interaction with Meghan Markle before she became an A-list celeb. My god, the amount of wild drama that ensued from her end...

[quote] I’m not here to trash Meghan. I’m not a hater. I was one of those people who truly wanted to stan Meghan Markle (before and after her engagement to Prince Harry). I met her 1 year before she started dating Prince Harry. I can’t say the line of work I was in...but let’s just say I needed to work closely on a photo shoot with her. I was a c-level exec for a certain company that contracted Meghan to do a photo shoot. I hand selected her for the photo shoot. I believed she was going to become HUGELY successful in the future, that’s why I chose her. We had everything lined up (world class vogue photographer, stylists, location, hotels booked... the works!). Meghan agreed to do the shoot. We spent many weeks discussing the shoot with her and her “PR” (a mysterious woman that we couldn’t call. We could only speak to via email ). Meghan had a lot of outrageous demands for someone that very few people actually heard of at the time... . Nevertheless, we gave her what she requested.

[quote]Everything went well up until 1 day before the photo shoot. Next thing you know (skimming over a lot of the story here), Meghan’s “PR” is freaking out at us because someone from our team (Mind you, this person received previous authorization from HER PR) posted a social media post about the upcoming shoot. My god, the friendly, mysterious PR turned into a down right psychopath overnight. She cursed us out, threatened us, and acted damn right insane (all via email). When I say insane, I mean INSANE. Discombobulated sentences, all caps, 10 pages of PURE, incoherent madness. Long story short, the photo shoot ended up being cancelled! We had to scramble to find a new celeb last minute. FF to a few months later, I met up with Meghan at an event. She was nice and lovely (as she portrays herself to be on camera... But I have a very sharp intuition when it comes to people. Every-time I spoke to her, she seemed off... contrived to me as if she was hiding something). I told her about her PR’s behaviour and she seemed genuinely shocked. She claimed to have no idea that her emotionally unstable PR ruined the photo shoot OP with us. She claimed to have been genuinely interested in the gig and mentioned that her PR said we were the ones who cancelled the contract. That day, I spoke to a friend of mine who worked for another company. Their company contracted Meghan for a photo shoot as well and shared a similar story of Meghan Markle (mind you, the companies that my friend and I represented at the time were big league brands that worked with several MUCH bigger celebs in the past). After the event, Meghan sent me an apology email. I had a nagging suspicion about her and ended up cross checking the location stamp of her email as well as the one from her PR (for those of you who don’t know this, it is very easy to trace the origin of an email)... Guess what? Both emails originated from the exact same computer and location (her home in Toronto).

[quote]This woman has serious issues. Her cancelling the photo shoot is not the part that bothers me. How she did it creeps me out. No sane person behaves that way! If you saw the email, you would understand what I mean. I was not exaggerating when I said the email was totally psychotic. The person who wrote it was clearly having a mental break down. I strongly believe she wrote that email. For the longest time I didn’t want to accept what I found out about her. Even after what she did to us, I wanted to Stan her as the first “black-ish” princess. It wasn’t until I read about her constantly loosing staff at the palace, and the tempestuous relationships she would have with people, that I realized she really must have psychological issues.

by Anonymousreply 393January 17, 2022 10:22 AM

[quote] Oh, I forgot to mention one more interesting part of the story. A few weeks after Meghan got engaged to Prince Harry, I received emails from several publications (The Daily Mail Included) asking for the photos from the photo shoot we did with Meghan. Apparently her “PR” told these news outlets that they could get photos of her and commentary from me. That was my second biggest WTF moment with her. Why would Meghan tell these people to contact me for photos that she knows we never took! I believe she was reaching out to the press at that time, secretly feeding them information. I strongly believe that she is also feeding the rumour mill with salacious stories about herself to remain relevant. She took far too many pages of advice from the Kardashian media machine. God help her.

They may want to move to NY, or elsewhere, but they certainly won't go without some kind of face-saving gig lined up, hence their bizarro trip to NY in September. Not like they are going to admit that California didn't quite work out. I suppose they could always claim they are moving the headquarters of Archewell. Or maybe BFF Gayle will have the Duchess on as a very special correspondent.

R397, There are people obsessed with the Sussexes who post on different websites. This includes the annoying Klan Granny Troll as well as their "haters". I wonder how many are actual subscribers to DL? Admittedly the Sussexes are entertaining in all their narcissism and delusions of grandeur, but agree there are too many threads on them. I enjoyed the Dangling Tendrils and BRF threads and wonder why we can't consolidate threads? Count me as someone else who has enjoyed Della's posts on Meghan Markle. I haven't seen her comments on other topics, and fail to see the humor in a boat fire with casualties.

R397 & R405, is that you, Della, posting anonymously? Still trying to hall monitor after another poster rightfully reamed your ass for your hypocrisy?

For those that don't know, Della has been frequenting the Harry & Meghan threads since the Dangling Tendrils days and is a Sussex apologist. Notice she castigates anyone who criticizes them as a "hater" but voices no concern about the klan granny troll who calls everyone a racist. Hell, maybe KGT is another one of her personalities?

Go over to Celebitchy if you want to fawn over these two nimrods. Harry and Meghan made their own bed. You can't blame everyone rlse for having eyes and ears to witness their buffoonery. Derision and mockery is not "very dark stuff", just painful to someone who picked the wrong horse.

Yeah, think Della is masquerading herself as other posters in her own defense.

She’s reminiscent of Markle: comes across as a smug, selfish woman (per her own admission) completely clueless to her hypocrisy and finger-wagging support of a like-minded pal.

Her posts are low on perception and heavy with arrogant-ladled snark. She plays victim and flounces off when posters fail to acknowledge them. But hands out “smooches” as if she were deigning to bestow some munificence on lowly peasants.

Side-eye those posters that recognize her as “interesting and reasonable” as many of the truly cognizant posters who dare to call out her heavy-handed obtuseness and absolute BS are usually heavily upvoted.

Unlike ElderLez, ElderSage, SylviaFowler or rescue-chick, she has failed to bring anything to DL that is insightful, kind or intelligent.

This is derailing, so will return to the topic at hand.

Haz’s recent play for security has turned off many. Also, there apparently have been a handful of calls to KP for money, which were promptly redirected to CH.

R388 and others are correct. The media and DL have predicted many things.

DM was this first to break a deluge of Meghan issues with it's "Hurricane Meghan" & "What Meghan Wants, Meghan Gets" articles:

-Tiarragate -

-Making Kate cry

-The Queen wondering why Meghan would wear such a white dress for being a divorcee

-MelissaGate - The assistant who quite after 6 months around the Australia tour that received a payoff and an unprecedented glowing recommendation from the Palace

-Meghan taking photos of Charlotte at their first informal dinner at the Cambridges Amner Hall

-Th diary that she kept to record everything that was happening

This was all before Megxit so she must have been ruffling a lot of feathers b/c these stories came fast and hard. They were denied in the beginning but after Oprah almost all of these have been substantiated by the Palace or royal sources.

For all the Klan Granny screamers, instead of denying Meghan's fuck ups, ask why she couldn't have used some of her determination to carve out a useful role in the family. She was blowjob girl in 90210, so I'm sure she's received worse and more degrading treatment as a nobody actress in Hollywood than she would by the Royals.

I'm wondering if this isn't a ploy to get his status as an "Internationally Protected Person" back. IPPs cover heads of state, heads of government, government ministers, ambassadors, reigning royal families. IPPs are protected by police in every country they visit and paid for by local taxpayers. Harry originally had that in Canada but lost it when Canadians railed against the freebie as he isn't a working member of the royal family. If Harry regained his IPP status, the police in his home country - the US - would have to be paid for by the taxpayer.

Also, IPP status would confer tax privileges. Ambassadors don't pay taxes in the country they live in - look at all the complaints in NYC about UN ambassadors getting free security, paying no taxes, don't have to pay their parking fines.

Maybe this is Harry's last ditch attempt not to pay taxes in California.

by Anonymousreply 428January 17, 2022 4:05 PM

Yes, well, let's get back to the subject at hand. I've blocked the Flat Earther but I have no problem taking some extra time to put the public record out there. It only makes her look worse as she keeps calling it crazy when it was global headlines.

Back to this move by Harry, I think this is a telling crossroads for all those involved. Harry knows he can't "pay" for Scotland Yard protection because it's not for sale or lease.

What he does know is that if he loses this (and I suspect he thinks he will), he can declare that he can never visit the UK again, and he has a permanent cover for the fact that he and Meghan have burnt all their bridges to the UK and to his family, but they can blame "security" concerns.

If he's told to fuck off by the government and the judiciary, he wins on one count; if by some chance they give him what he wants, he's forced them all to cross a line that pretty much reestablishes him as a Person of Importance, and sets a precedent for the POIs to demand the same things, and wins on another count.

So this case represents a do or die moment in the relationship between Harry and the monarchy and the UK - a refusal to treat him like a POI makes clear to the world how UNimportant he is and how outside the magical royal circle he is. And that, I think, will represent something of a final acknowledgement. It's over.

But if they cave, the judiciary and the Met and the Yard and the monarchy will face furious taxpayers, the contempt of the public, cries of Unfair Privilege.

I really do think that this represents a crossroads for the whole show.

I wouldn't give you a farthing for the future of the government or the monarchy if this goes Harry's way.

Klan Granny here, but not THE Klan Granny. I'll accept the title because anyone who has anything to say about Meghan is a Klan Granny on these threads, so there is no choice really. What I will say is that I wasn't always the "klan granny" that I am now. I was elated when Meghan and Harry got engaged. As an Angeleno, I was so excited to see a hometown bi-racial girl join the royals, watched the wedding, and was so excited to see what they've done. Meghan blew a golden, golden opportunity to really make the change that she wanted to enact. I remember seeing children of all races look up to the American Pricess and I thought her family were crazy. It turns out they and everyone else had Meghan's number. She threw everyone under the bus on her way up, and I hate myself for even defending this bitch, but even her bridesmaid Jessica Mulroney. I don't care for her, but had this women not taken Meghan under her wing and introduced her to the elite/politcal figures in Canada, she would be hustling for her next job after Suits. She has no loyalty whatsoever. I think Doria is more regal than both she and Harry and that's not saying much.

by Anonymousreply 442January 17, 2022 4:29 PM

R436 - I'd be very surprised if the BRF weren't aware of this aspect of Harry's ploy.

It was always theorised that TQ was soft on them when they left because she was leaving the "door" open in case they came back reasonably soon.

But they shot themselves in the foot on that score with the Oprah interview, the Dax Shepherd and Apple ones, and then came the Lilibet farce, the bullying investigation, and Meghan's admissions in her court papers that she and Harry DID collude with Scobie and Durand on the book.

I think that was the apex of their ex officio fame and glory, although they thought it was the beginning of their glorious climb. Unfortunately, the concurrence with Philip's death and funeral, the almost immediate exposure of the lies they told on Oprah, and the rest of the sorry arse shit that came out, ensured that afterward they were on their way down.

They cannot possibly suppose that William would let them anywhere near the front door; or, that the British public would accept it.

So if that's one of Harry's fantasies here, he really should be in treatment.

R440 - Here's how things work around here:

1 - Harry throws his family, whose head is Britain's Head of State, and whose father and brother are the next two Heads of State, under the bus on an internationally broadcast television show, and when half of what they said turn out to be either lies or misdirected, Meghan's stans still believe whatever she says.

2 - Meghan is caught lying on sworn statements submitted to a British court. This is called "perjury" and is a felony. R440 thinks this is a "fairly mild" bit of obnoxiousness.

3 - Harry threatens ITV, the BBC. and the TIMES for printing the truth about his (nonexistent) exchanges with the Queen about using her intimate family nickname for his daughter. The Palace makes it clear Harry WAS lying. Legal threats disappear.

4 - The TIMES prints an excerpt from Robert Lacey's book detailing the Fiji Market event, for which their are literally dozens of witnesses. Meghan files a press complaint against the TIMES for running the excerpt - press complaint dies. That is to say, Meghan makes it clear that she's ready to sue the press every time it says something about her she doesn't like - even if it's true. Well, press supression: that's a pretty mild bit, innnit?

5 - Harry and Meghan insist to the public and the royal family that they had NOTHING whatever to do with Scobie's book. Later, it turns out that the two people setting themselves up as crusaders against "misinformation" in the media lied their faces off, eagerly colluded with the book, and Harry is quoted as stating that it is important that the public never know of their involvement. Oh, hey, what's a little dishonesty toward press and public?!

6 - Harry and Meghan accuse the BRF of trying to stifle their "voices" over Philip's health - although, as it happens, everyone in the family knew he was circling the drain - in fact, the public at large had a pretty good idea he was for it, and soon. Then he dies, as expected, and Meghan and Harry recharacterise their incredibly insensitive and dishonest assertion by stating that the timing of the interview was unfortunate but they had no control over it. Oh, hey, what's a little insensitivity toward a 95 year old woman at her dying husband's bedside?!

You see, the truth is, if Meghan were white, or Kate were the ex-royal duchess and pulled the same stunts, people like the Klan Granny Troll and R440 would be bawling for her head to be on a pike over Tower Bridge.

You see, R440, it's not "a few fairly mild if obnoxious" things. It's an accretion of lies, deceit, obvious contempt for the public, and an actual crime, perjury, and a vicious will to damage the people from whom all their fame and wealth derive.

It's hypocrisy, lies, atrocious behaviour toward the Queen who bent over backwards for them, and years of the Palace covering up Harry's messes . . .

When you put all the pieces together, R440, the truth is, it's a really ugly picture.

by Anonymousreply 453January 17, 2022 4:47 PM

R441 - It has nothing to do with egos. It has to do with the fact that the Sussexes threw the family under the bus, lied about them, cannot be trusted, and last but not least, the UK public hate them.

It would be rewarding traitors and liars, and forcing the public to pay for people they despise via the Sovereign Grant.

It will never happen.

If the Sussexes had remotely tried to leave amiably stating that they'd like to explore life outside the royal circle for a couple of years, and spent the time maintaining good relationships with the BRF, they might have had a shot.

But after what they did for the last two years?

No. Not now, not ever.

I was watching the news here in the UK this morning and a lawyer raised an interesting point about Harry trying to sue the British Government. If the court were to rule that Harry is indeed a high target individual due to his status as a member of the British Royal Family (even a non-working one), this would by default likely force the UK government to pay for his security even in the US. Hearing that now, I'm guessing that this is H&M's end game.

They’ve been maneuvering behind the scenes for this at least since September. It’s theorized the Daily Mail was going to leak this, and they hastily put forth a public statement from their legal team. Likely knew this would not go over well in the public sphere.

Even more than that, what hadn’t gone over well is the California escapade. Sounds as much as if they are draining money at a rate that is difficult to replace with no overt sources of money coming in. 24/7 security costs can be astronomical.

Having taxpayers pay for security would ease financial burdens on their part.

The Sussexes aren't very popular and while the general national feeling toward them is indifference, there are always some crazies in the mix.

What is not understandable is why he'd need Met protection when visiting his UK family in a private capacity, at their well-guarded and protected private estates and homes. That's just offensive, and total overkill. Fly into the UK privately, take private transport out to Sandringham or up to Balmoral, spend your quality family time, the leave the same way you came in.

And I absolutely question the motivation of someone who sits on one thread for hours screaming "look you fucking piece of shit" and "Meghan wears white sheets because she hates being black" and "you're all paid SS employees out to get me" also happily calling themselves a Klan Granny.

You and the rest of you guys have to know that a lot of your Meghan-and-Harry-hating friends on here sound really crazy, with the constant obscene and threatening language, the paranoid accusations, the over-the-top racism. You know that, right?

"The source also claimed that Harry negotiated the deal himself from his and Meghan's home in California and that the couple could earn as much as $40 million from the arrangement.

"He conducted negotiations—he had a very 'take it or leave it' attitude," the source claimed. "His starting price was $25 million and the final figure was way north of that, possibly as much as $35-40 million. Those involved were actually very shocked by his approach, which was to look at them coldly and state his demands."

I think the luck for him is there is a much bigger pool of people who’ll want to read about his childhood, for two reasons—(1) Diana lovers, whose likely demographic (older women) is a big part of the book market, and (2) people who are just curious about what it’s like to grow up in the lap of luxury. Harry can share details about these things, his struggles with mental illness or war experience, and probably some long chapters about Meghan’s cooking and nice vacations, that won’t necessarily harm or piss off the family too much. And maybe he’ll take that approach and leave a shard of the bridge unburned.

But then there’s also people who want the salacious details about drama within the family. These are the people who will happily read summaries in the Daily Mail. I still think it’s unclear how much Harry is going to share here, and I think it’s likely that if he does, he will focus on his Dad and try to leave out his grandmother, Kate, and maybe even the Yorks (if he’s still close with Eugenie). If he burns anyone it will be Charles.

He and his friends were sitting in a restaurant patio - the friends chuckled about "the ex" and razzed her, as Trevor kind of pulled back and made no effort to stop it.

Then there is her best friend, Ninaki Priddy who was also unceremoniously ghosted after Megs moved on to Suits. Ninaki tried to warn folks with a pre-wedding interview, but many chalked it up to sour grapes.

Then there is Gina Crowne-Thorpe(?): the PR agent Megs dumped for Haz. Supposedly, Megs ghosted her and subsequently encountered her on royal engagements. Haz spoke to Gina on these, but Megs ignored her or had her removed from the premises.

Word on the street is that Bower’s book may be delayed until later in the year because he was contacted by so many that had something to say.

Oprah basically screwed them over to get attention. They screwed up their relations with the royal family and the Obamas after that. Oprah had never met them before she and Gayle King got surprise invitations to their wedding - like the Clooneys did. They were token A listers to make it look like Meghan circulated in higher-powered social circles than she did.

I’ve never been much of a Reese Witherspoon fan but total respect for the fact that she declined an invitation to the Harkles’ wedding as she didn’t know either of them.

So Meghan filed a complaint with the BBC over the phrase “admitted to misleading the court” in an otherwise very flattering story. Today the Daily Mail, in the article discussing Scobie’s comparisons of Harry and Andrew, uses the exact same phrase:

Harry and Meghan's former communications secretary, gave information to Mr Scobie and Ms Durand – leading to Meghan apologising for misleading the court about whether he had done so.

Looks like the DM is ready for Round 2. Will she go for it?

The reason the royals never attack the tabloids - never complain, never explain - is because they know the tabloids will never stop harassing them. Meghan and Harry are dumbshits.

I don't know about Gayle who wasn't there, but Oprah had sought a coveted pre-nuptial interview with Meghan, but the palace put a kibosh on the idea, much to the disappointment of both. There was contact of some sort, if not a direct meeting. No accident or surprise she was at the wedding.

R516 Oh, we're all looking forward to Harry's son story.

And given what a flop Scobie's and Meghan's books were, I'm sure it will be a success because if how low the bar was set.

And then Bower's book will come out and blow Harry's bullshit out of the water. . .

And the Jubilee hasn't even started yet.

The big winner will be DATALOUNGE!!!!!!!

Harry Meghan Charles Camilla William Kate Andrew TQ Sophie Edward . . .

The gift that keeps on giving.

Shes addicted to googling herself for everything said/written about her on social media/online. They have some two-bit conman on twitter stalking and threatening women who even hint at not being pro-M.

I think to put this into perspective we should remember that Harry and Meghan have both admitted on national television that they struggle with mental health problems. So when you ask, "what's wrong with this bitch?" she has already let us know that she suffers from severe depression and suicidal ideation, which cause a mess of other symptoms and issues, such as insuritues that create extreme sensitivity to criticism. So, yeah. You can't really expect them to make mature, appropriate healthy decisions and actions, not being able to do so is the definition of mental unwellness.

by Anonymousreply 578January 17, 2022 10:39 PM

It's funny how they claim to be opposed to social media whereas you can be sure Meghan spends her days name-searching herself on every conceivable gossip forum.

by Anonymousreply 579January 17, 2022 10:39 PM

*insecurities not insuritues.

Anyway, we're literally picking on mentally unhealthy people and then laughing at them when they act out their mental unwellness. It's like kicking crutches out from a cripple.

Not all bad behavior can be attributed to mental illness. Some people are just shitty human beings.

by Anonymousreply 581January 17, 2022 10:49 PM

I don't believe she was suicidal. Hell, the way she described it was so manipulative.

I'd be more inclined to believe her if she said "I couldn't do that to my baby" or "I couldn't imagine never meeting Archie".

But no, she compared herself to Harry losing Diana.

If, as you say, R580, they are so mentally unwell and such poor....poor....VICTIMS who everyone is “kicking crutches out from a cripple”, how is it they have the capacity to launch a myriad of lawsuits, send out numerous PR alerts, promote heavy “misinformation” (aka lies), dox bloggers, reportedly bully subordinates, arrange pap shots, attack family members, accuse societies of being racist and arrange multiple million dollar contracts with people in the entertainment system industry?

Waiting for your response.

I think she loves herself too much to be suicidal.

by Anonymousreply 584January 17, 2022 10:53 PM

My approach with Meghan is to use “alleged” when dealing with her bullshit. Alleged miscarriage. Alleged suicidal thoughts. Kate allegedly made her cry. Etc.

by Anonymousreply 585January 17, 2022 10:55 PM

She's a borderline and if you've ever known a borderline, there is no pity to be had. They're evil.

by Anonymousreply 586January 17, 2022 10:56 PM

Even if she lied about being suicidal and was being manipulative, that's something that a mentally unwell person does. Look at the Oprah from the lens of watching two crazy people who aren't even really aware that their mental illness is devastating their lives. (Which it is. Look at them.) And it's bery sad.

She doesnt get a pass for bad behavior, but she is short a few cards.

R583 You don’t know anything about mental illness. Best if you refrain from talking for this part of the conversation.

Not only did they do the OW interview while Philip was dying, but she then merched a fucking wreathe during the funeral.

by Anonymousreply 589January 17, 2022 10:58 PM

If she is a narcissist, pitying her for being mentally unwell is poison. She wants to be smarter and better, not felt sorry for because she's "defective" (how a narc would see it). If the press really wanted to fuck with her, they'd give her the pity she wants not act like she's an equal enemy.
