An almost-Royal Oscars?
The Academy is celebrating the 90th Oscars this weekend. The Oscars are always a big *butt* deal in Hollywood but when it’s a nice round number like that, they usually want to make it even more extra. And the challenge with the Oscars every year, though they may not admit it, is that many of the films nominated aren’t seen by most of the television viewing audience. Which is why they have to rely on the star power that the Oscars attracts – the nominees, for sure, but also the presenters. As mentioned earlier, Faye Dunaway and Warren Beatty may show up again at the end of the show to present Best Picture. But that may not have been the first choice?

Multiple sources have told me that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle were invited by the Academy to attend the Oscars. They wanted to get them there, whatever that would look like – as attendees, great, but as presenters, even better. And the invitation was seriously considered. I hear that Harry and Meghan really wanted to go. There were calls back and forth between teams, some early fashion queries were even made. The issue was security and logistics. The Oscars red carpet is a tricky dance. And having the royals walk a red carpet is a tricky dance. That red carpet gets a LOT of traffic. There are typically two streams – guests who are attending the show and guests who are attending the show and also on display for the press. They try to time arrivals at intervals, holding the stars in the arrivals tent before releasing them on the carpet for their photos and interviews. Creating that gap for a royal saunter would be complicated. And I’m told, at last check, they couldn’t make it work. We’re in the town where magic happens though. So I guess nothing is impossible. But my sources told me, though the willingness was strong on both sides, it’s very unlikely that it will happen. Can you imagine what might have been? http://www.laineygossip.com/prince-harry-and-meghan-markle-asked-to-present-at-the-oscars/49274

^ I believe this is true, and this coming from Lainey I take it as very very true. I have suspected since before the engagement that if they were to get engaged and married, there'd be invitations to film things like the Oscars and others. It would be a big joke though for the Winds (/royals) if they attended. Such a celebrity thing to do. And with the incredibly bad publicity the film industry has had (sexual assault and r*pe left right & centre) it would be in extremely poor taste for them to go.
But maybe that's just me.

I mean, they always say royalty isn't celebrity and is in fact above it. This doesn't quite go with that notion, at all.

No way she should be crossing the pond to attend any award show in the U.S. just because its her nationality.  bignono

Megs: you are not an actress anymore and you were never a "Hollywood actress" like Jennifer Lawrence or Angelina Jolie, they actually belong there, not you. Stay your arse in Britain!  :bat:  :laugh:

Post by: HRHOlya on March 02, 2018, 09:10:44 pm
Also no way is security an issue. At all.
I bet this happened: Meg and H were invited, was dying to go and taking it as a done deal (no engagements or similar that weekend, or things that could be put off/ postponed), dreamt up what jewels she'd loan from Harry Winston or Tiffany's and was likely in talks instantly with designers and maybe jewllers. No way would she rewear that fugly Marchesa gown. Harry likely went with it, in how far I can't say, the Winds attend the BAFTAs so the Oscars are basically the same, also when someone is in love/ infatuated/ whatever, they become too dumb to see the forest for the trees. Then the grey men and Chuck and Liz got wind of it and put the kibosh on it. Now Meg is crying in her pillow and leaking to Lainey that she was dying to go but the bad Winds won't let her, with "security" as a cop-out.

Only the BAFTAs support British productions in film and TV, it's domestic, whilst the Oscars are just an international "glamorous" tack fest. So there is a difference there, in regards to a Windsor showing up.

Albert of Monaco was there with Charlene, so that's proof that security isn't an issue, he's literally the man with power (a "true" regent and not just a figurehead) and much more important than Harry ever will be. Also Albert is the son of Grace Kelly, so him being there is again imo different to a Windsor being there.

I don't think the Oscars are just a tack fest, but a genuine celebration of film and not just the actors or actresses; it involves the crew, the people who work behind the scenes. I am certain that Harry and Meg would be pointless mainly since there would be no legitimate reason for them to be there. After all, it's not like Meg was ever at that level and I think to go to the Oscars would be just a kind of way for Meg to try to make the other celebs jealous, but that wouldn't work.

That's the way it's supposed to be. But it has gotten way too political with stars sounding like they are on some political news show. I want to be entertained, if I wanted political statements I'd turn on my news shows.

I agree; frankly I'm fed up with the spouting and would prefer to see them in their gowns and comment about the dresses and jewels and I do believe that if they actually accepted their role as entertainers with gusto, it would actually improve box office returns and goodwill.

I'm going to have to agree with Rosella on this one. I don't believe it for a second. What's more likely IMO is everyone assumed that she (and by default H) would be invited but she never was. This gets put out to keep her name out there, connect her name to the #1 trending topic over the next 3 days in the US, and makes it look like it was a choice not to go instead of not being invited in the first place. It's a modern-day version of "That's ok because I didn't want to go to your stupid party anyway." Think about it. If she had been invited and they were truly trying to work out logistics, there would have been hints about the possibility all over social media over the last few weeks.

I've got friends who have been in the industry for years and it doesn't seem like M was very well respected nor recognized. Oscar invites are not easy to come by. One friend of mine had a pretty prominent role in a film that was Oscar-nominated a few years ago and even he didn't get an invite to the awards that year. They only invited the producers and director. There are some people that don't get a plus one. It would not play well for someone who is not a film actor  - and for all intents and purposes belongs to another country now -  to be there. There is absolutely no reason for her to be invited. She got what she wanted, though. Folks will be talking on social media about her when the Oscars are discussed all weekend.


Title: Re: Prince Harry: Press Articles & Random Chat 2018
Post by: windsor2 on March 03, 2018, 03:48:47 am
I really hope that MM goes by herself. She's overly confident in that she brought up her stance on the hot Hollywood topic #metoo and #timesup and hasn't gotten reprimanded by Harry or Wills; in fact, she's getting more events with Harry and an event with the queen in attendance. She must feel she can do no wrong. She'll definitely go imo. It's an event of a lifetime for an actress such as her. I don't believe she'll let this opprtunity to rub her naysayers in the acting world that she's at the Oscars as a presenter and they're in their houses watching her.  :cookie:

Title: Re: Prince Harry: Press Articles & Random Chat 2018
Post by: Kuei Fei on March 03, 2018, 03:53:13 am
I think her naysayers couldn't care at all; meg wouldn't be at the Oscars as a star who worked hard and was skillful at picking the right roles and basically paid her dues, she would be there as a tolerated ornament and outsider. It would be one thing if she were there as a contender or star guest/presenter, but she would be there as a former Soho girl who basically was one of many hustlers who weren't working on their craft, but instead tried to sleep their way in. Meg will have nothing in common with them. After the ceremony is over, she'll be taken back to the palace while the celebs get to go to the after parties.

Meg was on a show that wasn't middling tier and I am certain that Meg was in that level in Hollywood where showgirls used to be in times past. For example, show girls were the equivalent of television/reality show stars are today and basically Meg was doing lower middle level work, nothing else and at her age, not a good thing. I am sure that Meg wasn't on any radar of any major agency or studio and I am certain that she would be out of her depth at the Oscars. There wouldn't be any major place for her and it would mean cutting out someone who should be given an invite. I think if Harry had dated someone top tier, he would have had to up his own game considerably.

She participate remotely to support the TimesUp movement. Her mouthing off about this during the foundation event and saying that women have a voice says to me that she's just doing her thing and won't be dictated to.
^she's a narc so of course she would think that she's beyond those that got there by woring hard at their craft as she'll be their as a special geust. She's never going to fit into the royal family, UK or the Comonwealth, so she might as well have her jollies now before it all ends. There's no real buz around any of the films/people beng nominated, so it seems that something will have to happen to get people talking, so MM possibly showing up without Harry might now be in play. Things have gotten stupid now with these dumb celebrities spouting equal pay and other political stuff during the red carpet interviews. This year, they'll avoid Ryan Secrest due to suspicion of sexual harrassing 2 women. Hollywood=guilty before proven innocent.   :bored:

Meg doesn't seem to fit in anywhere, I can say that much; she was part of the seedier side of the entertainment industry and I do not think she's someone who will be comfortable there. I'm sure the others will know her real backstory and I am certain she will not like being around that; thing is, if the BRF falls, she'll have her entire backstory exposed and I think that is what drives her, trying to outrun her past.

^^^Yes. Just another variation of the Bond Girl debacle.
 
^^Based on her history and the fact that Lainy put this story out there, "I don't think they would want to attend" is not gonna fly. That woman would consider giving up a kidney for the opportunity to attend what is the pinnacle of events in the acting world and rub elbows with the likes of Meryl, Viola, Speilberg and the like. She didn't go into acting just to end up marrying H. She did it because she wanted to succeed and be recognized by her peers for her work. No matter what happens across the pond, there will always be a huge part of her that longs to be considered a peer by folks who run in those circles.

Exactly this, and a bit more than just that. I used to be excited about the Oscars and all those award events, but in recent years I find they have descended and turnt into sth entirely else, and it's not good. And it's just trunt from worse to unbearable since ca 2016. :ick: And whilst an invitation to the Oscars used to be the pinnacle, and for the industry still is, to me it's luke warm at best.  :dontknow: Also having it confirmed pretty much that some women (and likely men) received Oscars as pay off for other things, leaves a bad taste overall and diminishes the status of such an award.

I also think that Meg would sell a kidney to attend. It is sth glamorous and "on brand" for her and likely for the way she sees herself in the future as royal: "Diana 2.0", caring, warm, glamorous, adored, at home at Cannes as well as hospices; living in a palace with butlers and staff as well as flying off to poor Africa, crying about extinction, the environment and landmines. Also some sort of Grace Kelly rebirth, the new film diva marrying into royalty and making the stuffy Brit monarchy modern and bringing a whole new type of people and revenue to London/ Britain, just like Grace's effect was on Monaco back in the day. Just call her "Diana Kelly" dahling, and you got yourself royalty's new mega star! :Pippa:

I read he went bankrupt and is hiding out. So he wouldn't want attention in Mexico and doesn't want to travel. He will for the wedding but whatever is chasing him into hiding will be taken care of while he is in Windsor at Harry's cost. I don't know how private he was in the past, but now he is hiding.

Katie Nicholls has just published a new bio of Harry called 'Loss, life and Love'. I think it's from that. Royal biographers don't publish books that they don't expect to sell. And as Harry had the highest approval ratings of the royals in one of the three polls published in the last few months, since his engagement, and came second in the other two, ratings in the 70s% and 81%, if anyone is desperate in the royal family it isn't him.

It's desperate PR from KP who know that PH's marriage to The Murky One is not at all popular in the UK. And Katie Nicholls is so far up the Royal backside that she will have to be removed surgically one day.

Opinion polls can be manipulated to reflect the answers which are wanted by the clients who have commissioned the Polls.  And they can also be far off the mark as evidenced by the EU Referendum and last year's General Election.  I'd like to know when and where the "three polls" were conducted.  Asked in the vicinity of Sandringham would be very different, I suspect, from other parts of the UK...

Meghan Markle on sleeping w/ film producers

Breaking news: Allegedly, MM moonlighted as a prostitute while she was a briefcase girl on Deal or No Deal. Two of her famous clients are film producers named: Steven Terner Mnuchin and Brett Ratner. Previously, Mnuchin was a film producer and a hedge fund manager before he became the 77th current US Secretary of Treasury. On the other hand, Ratner is a famous producer and director known for the film series Rush Hour, X-Men, The Family Man, and among others.

How the playboy Prince (finally) grew up: In rare — and candid — on-the-record interviews those who know Harry best explain how the wild royal has matured into a husband-to-be


Slumped in a chair with a gin and tonic in his hand, Prince Harry was speaking from the heart. 'The trouble is,' he said, 'I'm not like any other young man. It's difficult to be normal.'

Harry was having a drink with General Sir Richard Dannatt and his wife Pippa in their Kensington Palace apartment.

'One's heart really went out to him,' says the former head of the Army, now Lord Dannatt, who has four children of his own, including a son who followed him into the Army.

'I felt really sympathetic because if you are a young prince you are not like everybody else. However much you want to be yourself, people don't allow you to be.'

Ten years after that fireside conversation, who would say Prince Harry isn't being himself now? Even when he was going through the wildest periods of his younger life, nobody expected him to marry an outspoken American divorcee three years his senior.

The hunting will never stop and tbh I can't entirely blame them.. If you eat meat, then game is the healthiest there is, and someone's got to bring the food home somehow :spy: Many go for the socializing and fun of being in the group, esp those who don't shoot themselves.

^ Ha ha ha ha  -  how much is this most unintelligent woman being paid to write that article.  Both dork haza and brain dead bill medd are lucky if they own a brain cell between.  Only have to look at the sewer level the two bints allowed to be married into the family and it tells us everything we need to know.  Does Moir know what an absolute fool she looks and sounds.  One day, in the not too distant future, she will realise all her lies have been revealed and have the biggest eggs on her face than she could ever imagine.  Bring it on, bring it on, he who laughs last laughs longest.  Maybe Moir she write a book, how to drop the rf into the sewers via two of the most common, downmarket females you could ever wish to meet.  I often wonder if the spawn of Diana have plotted and planned to do this to the rf in revenge for their mother.  If that is the case they have done a sterling job.  Admiration and support for the rf was at a low ebb after the death of Diana, but boy look at it now, not a low ebb but at the bottom of the sewers.  HM will go down as the weakest queen in history, she really has sat back and allowed all this to happen.  Any respect I ever had for her died when she did nothing to avert a crisis in 2013, and allowed more to continue over the next few years.  If that isn´t weak then I don´t know what is.  As for dork haza, should have nipped that in the bud from the very start, surely HM should have seen what was coming, and pretty sure she had the right "departments" digging into the family history and that of murky herself.  Nope, the weakest of the weak, and look where it has got her  -  down in the sewers.

She's weak but I think Charles is worse, self centered, spineless and totally out for himself. He uses PR a lot because he blames others. He has taught his sons to use PR and spin also. Camilla is a disaster but she will hopefully be kept in the background if Charles has any brains. Neither Will or Harry are Einsteins even with William's studies at University.

^In my opinion the whole RF is pure PR. It's what keeps them going at this point. Every family member has his or her role to play in the PR drama with probably very little choice in how the whole thing plays out.

It will be very interesting to see how MM's role is shaped by the RF pr machine in the months and years to come. I guarantee they have been shaping her image up to this point, and will do so even more now that the wedding is over.

I would assume that all married-in spouses are expendable. If they toe the line, they're taken care of. If they don't, the Royal PR machine might turn on them. MM might be the one to break the system, or she might not. If she rebells and does her own thing the system might try to break her. All speculation. But we'll see how things go. :cookie:

Post by: HRHOlya on May 20, 2018, 02:01:43 pm
^ "the whole RF is pure PR. It's what keeps them going at this point" yes, exactly this. Though I agree with your whole post.

M will be used for the benefit of the Winds too. It is one of the reasons why she was accepted. Because she's brown/ black/ dark skinned. She can bring the appeal to the commonwealth, esp the countries where Liz is still "queen" but the majority black who want independence after Liz goes. M will also be used to appeal to the "average" Brit, who's now really of Asian (Indian/ Pakistani etc), Middle Eastern, African and Caribbean descent.

I think they all side eye her, incl K (we've had leaks), but with the right spin she will benefit their "modern" image, and the good thing is, she is in the main line, but won't be for too long. So M is in centre stage but will never have the main role. Great for "modernizing" the image, but not really affecting the direct dynasty and future (I mean genetically frankly).

All married-ins are most definitely expendable, and in spite of all the "modernisation" the Winds have done and changes implemented (e.g. "welcoming the Midds with open arms, even at Ascot, Xmas" etc), at the core they are still the same and will never change. Their line rules, and their line (blood) has to have the upper hand. Diana said she was expendable and never ever really "in", but forever an "outsider" and they let her feel it, and if someone from one of England's oldest and most important families is treated like that, then what chance do plebs like Kate and Meghan (who's a foreigner - from another continent on top!) have?

If Meg gets above the Winds, they'll deal with her. She better not let it get that far. The individual is of no importance, esp a married in, and as such may never ever be more popular than the dynasty. That's what broke Diana's neck. There's a piece with advice Diana's former secretary wrote for the dm, and it's chilling frankly. Echoing much of what you (Albany ^) and I've just written. You can find it in my posting history or if you can't find it I can look and repost.

Waity is way too lazy, but I think after all, she might be playing the game best. Years ago there were obviously planted pieces by KP, saying she wanted her image in the image of Liz the q mum, be seen (she needs work on that) but not heard. Liz the q mum was an atrocious human being, but the nation loved her for her "warm and soft granny" image, which she was not in reality. Scarole might be behind Waity's image too, we all know Waity can't without her, and ultimately it might help Kate tremendously to be as she's been all these years (though she must go on more engagements). We already have an effect of Meg('s unpopular and negative image) positively affecting Kate's image. Quite remarkable.

In spite of all, I can't see the monarchy lasting. No dynasty has lasted forever, and the Winds won't either.

Harry always has, still gets and always will be shoved under the bus in benefit of Will('s image).
The same is now due to happen to Harry's wife in benefit of Kate.

And with Murkles spending already, they are heading the York way.

Murkles better get used to being the "modern new improved" image of he Winds whilst at the same time being their punching bag.

Murkles might be the best thing to have happened to Kate in a long while.

^ applauds.

Also another thing related to your blind item is that Meghan is very calculating choosing a designer that would help her get into her circle of friends. I think it works in relation to Stella. And shs also has found Amal to help her in that sense.

Kate has probably famous friends and she loves  celebs (like Jolie) but I think both her and Will are not very close to them. Like they enjoy being able to mingle but theor real friends is their aristo circle. Amd also Kate probably doesnt have many friends and those she keeps are low key.

Meanwhile Meghan will have very high profile friends. That can help her short term. But she is not a celeb anymore. Any mistake they do it will reflect on her. Also they can sell her very easily. And they may help her when she is up but when thing goes wrong.... She probably knows that she will nlt be comfortable in the aristo circle. But she chose to marry anyway....

Also Oprah... what is really the connection here?! Charles Spencer was outside and Oprah was in the inner chamber. If things go south will she the first to get an interview?

I agree about Kate she is way smarter than we give her credit. Also her mother is better than QE and Charles in strategy.

I would love to know what they have been saying during this month and after the wedding.

^  :thankyou:

After all, truns out she did also choose Stella. The blind was onto sth for sure.

Yeah also you're right, W&K aren't as dumb as we think, they like celebs but they like the odd socializing, not being outright friends. Harry has had sleb friends (e.g. Joss Stone) for ages and with Murkles it's bound to get worse. And dangerous for the image of the Winds, as you rightly point out :thumbsup:

Fook knows what the connection with Oprah is, but in any case, Doria wasn't at O's house for nothing. YM said it's Oprah's shtick to give people make overs and rope them in that way. Not too familiar with her, but I don't particularly like her. I admire her for her success and her generosity whilst she had her show, but I don't think she's all that great. Became too poltical, as all of H'weird and too hungry for connections and angling her own agenda (latching onto Doria for instance).

I suppose an interview, docu or sth is in the making for Oprah, plus Oprah is the epitome of a successful black woman, connected to Hollywood and has her own media house, perfect for Megs and possibly her future leaks, peddling and whatnot.

An interview is highly likely and I never expected it before the wedding. Afterwards is a much much better timing. For many reasons. Meghan already married in, no backsies from the Winds, so she isn't risking her daughter's position, BP might give the ok as some say would happen, but it's not dependent on BP, CH or KP. Also Doria will have so much more to tell and share after the wedding than before and Oprah (and Gayle!) was right there with her own first hand impressions.

Oh Scarole is scarily good at strategies. Hats off to that woman, seriously.

I've said for ages I'd love to know what they allsay, family, friends, aristos, Liz, Phil, Chuck, Camz, the Cambs,the Midds... Unfiltered opinions and discussions!!  :sigh: :cookie: :akasha:

Oprah may not get that interview. The royals may not take kindly to Meghan and/or her mother being interviewed. Carole never got to do an interview so I doubt Doria will get that chance.

I still think the Middletons are not one to look down their noses at others (e.g.the Markles). They have their own problems and issues going on. Carole may be on the lookout for someone with royal blood to marry James and complete her dreams of advancement.  Also Pippa's kids will be mingling with their royal cousins. A big coup for Pippa and her husband.

Chuck and Camz sitting in judgment over the Markles is something I find a bad joke. Charles seemed to be milking the PR for all it was playing "good guy" by subbing for Tom Sr.


Title: Re: Prince Harry: Press Articles & Random Chat 2018
Post by: HRHOlya on May 20, 2018, 11:29:02 pm
The Middletons are smarter than the Markles, that's the difference why Carole never did an interview. We don't know whether she was asked and in all likelihood the Midds were asked. Even Diana's brother was back in the day a "correspondent" and "royal wedding commentator" or some such.
The Middletons are smarter than that. They follow the Winds rule "never complain never explain" and I'd say that's been in their favour tremendously. They take offers and chances, like book deals on party planning, cooking and that stuff, but never on the Winds or them personally, it's always related to their business, charity or similar.
I'd bet you anything that Carole was asked but turnt it down. The Midds though turn up for Xmas walks and pageants. The Midds certainly further their agenda and play the game, but they know how to play it and play it smartly. The Markles are all "blind elephant in a procelain shop".
Carole married both her daughters and 2 out of 3 of her children extremely well off. That's another level of strategy and cunning.
The Markles, Doria incl, don't have in their little finger what Carole has in her whole body when it comes to planning and moving forward and upwards. Meg on the other hand.... She's more in Carole's league.

PS The Midds also know the system, rules, bon ton etc better than the Markles, and that includes Meghan who for sure is in for an ugly awakening. Diana and Kate had rude awakenings after marrying in, it'll hit Meg even harder as foreigner and total outsider and stranger to everything.
The Midds simply know better how to navigate it all.


Title: Re: Prince Harry: Press Articles & Random Chat 2018
Post by: sandy on May 20, 2018, 11:41:14 pm
Pippa did get to write those books (which did not sell that well) and got a fairly good job. So she benefitted something like Diana's brother did. But she did not give any interviews that were personal and answering questions about what William was "really like."

I think Carole would have said yes if it had been approved by the Palace of course.

Doria and Carole are two different people in two different situations. Doria has a career, Carole had a career but moved on to become an entrepreneur. I don't think one is better than the other. I don't think DOria is a pushover by any stretch of the imagination.

I think the Midds are a bit too cunning for instance the stunt they pulled where they got on the tennis court then sued the photographer did not win them points.

Carole was willing to take risks like advising Kate to wage a public campaign to win back William plus she seemed to be able to persuade William to return to her daughter (the bonfire episode).

I don't think Meghan's half siblings will get anywhere with their moneymaking schemes (tell all books and media confessions).

SEBASTIAN SHAKESPEARE: Meghan Markle's ultimate ambition is to become US President... and it's not as crazy as it sounds
Quote
A royal historian says Meghan would find it difficult to enter U.S. politics while still married to Harry. ‘It is a pretty strong rule that members of the Royal Family keep out of politics,’ he says.
But Harry could, of course, give up official royal duties. His mother, Princess Diana, was said to have considered moving to America.
And the claim appears to have caused consternation at Kensington Palace yesterday, with the Duchess giving her official spokesman permission to take the unusual step of issuing a public denial.
I am, though, not the only one to hear rumours that Meghan still holds political ambitions.
Former Times editor Sir Simon Jenkins says: ‘Her friends and associates affirm that she is a political animal.
‘Such is her fame, she could perfectly well follow a route taken by a certain Ronald Reagan. She might lead for the Democrats against a Republican Ivanka Trump. All I can say is, why not?’

Even her speech was laced with political ideas. She can try to break the ceiling, but it will crash on her like a tonne of bricks. Diana broke the ceiling and it broke her neck. You either toe the line or you get lost, there's the door, no one holding her. Doubt H would give anything up, just like Bill, the titles and the privilege are too sweet a deal, they can complain all they want.
I also sincerely doubt Di wanted to move to the US, she'd have never moved so far away from her kids and she'd just redone her KP apartment, she'd seen it only once before she died and some rooms not at all.

That is strange, having two articles in the same day on the same theme.  :cookie:


I'm kind of hoping the BRF will jettison this social climber by insinuating she is unsuitable. (By these articles, I mean).
So Harry could marry someone more suited to this position in the BRF.

I noticed today instead of letting Harry walk first towards the crowd, she made sure she was ahead of him. She should understand it's her role to support him, not act like she's the main attraction. Which I'm sure she thinks she is.

This whole relationship is going to end disastrously, I think. I think he loves her, but she loves his position, visibility and money. And this fame validates her. No wonder HM looked like thunder at the wedding. She can see right through her and her schemes. IMHO.

'There was a bonfire and clothes were coming off, let's put it that way!' Prince Harry enjoyed a secret friendship aged 18 with a blues singer while on his Australian gap year in 2003
In an email exchange with Daily Mail Australia on Sunday, Cass clarified that their relationship was strictly friendship and not of a romantic nature.
'Sorry to be a disappointment, but the clothes that came off were not Harry's (or mine for that matter). And we definitely didn't dance around the bonfire together. If I said that I was mistaken, although we did get to play pool together.
'There was a party at a groom's accommodation, but it was a few of the male staff who took their tops off and danced around the fire.'
After approaching Cass for comment, her Pivotal Moments podcast episode appeared to disappear from iTunes.
http://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-5801641/Prince-Harry-enjoyed-secret-friendship-aged-18-Australian-blues-singer.html
Umm,  ??? This happened over 15 years ago. Why’s she talking about her brief platonic friendship with him?
Maybe the pr companies that rep the celebrities are being advised not to use Harry or any other royal family for their client’s press attention as in this case, the podcast was removed. I think they’ll have to be honest and not keep regurgitating the same nonsense in the press.

They're back! Prince Harry and his new wife, Duchess Meghan, have returned to London after their honeymoon, and Prince Harry is already back at work. While the exact destination of their luxurious escape remains a well-kept secret, the couple have returned to their home in the British capital and are settling into life as a married couple at their home in Kensington Palace. The duo, whose wedding on 19 July was watched with glee by fans across the globe, will no doubt be enjoying their slightly more relaxed life, now the stress of wedding preparations have passed

Right now, he’s finished and people are bringing up his partying and drug use and his out of control private life. Unfortunately that might be true because look at the mess he’s now married to.

Oh please, since when did Harry and his brother have "real jobs." I hope a fake ambulance job is not created for Harry. I don't see Harry as "finished" he's doing what is par for the course for the young royals. I don't see Meghan as a mess, and Harry is popular and I never saw him as "out of control." He was labeled the "bad" brother while WIlliam got away with commandeering helicopters and getting drunk.

The forums and blogs are full of disdain and criticism for the Diana spawn.  I am sorry to say dork haza has really painted h himself into a corner with strumpet murky.  Yes, I agree, the young royals are doing what they do best  -   nothing other than partying and living off the taxpayers, hitching them selves to two vile families they have brought into the rf, dragging the rf down to the sewers, gutters far too high for them these days.  Starting with the next generation down, her own children, the rf are nothing but a load of serious scrounges out for all they can do to scam from taxpayers and live the high life, doing their own thing, boozing and taking "medication" with hordes of flunkeys picking up the mess they make.  If a true poll were taken, and I mean true, not manipulated as usual, then the truth would come out that haza is not well liked and has gone down to zero in the opinion of many people.  Can´t read an article these days without the comments section pulling him to pieces at what he has done by marrying murkle.   Haza has been well out of control over the years, appearing to a fancy dress in a Nazi outfit.  Strutting his stuff naked in the US with a bevy of girls, photos of him drunk and medicated stumbling from unseemly nightclubs.    If that does not suggest that he was, and still is by marrying murkle, out of control then what does.  The press do not get to print the half of it, that is the trouble, and what the public knows he has got up to is, in the opinion of many, including myself, the tip of the iceberg.  Sorry, we will have to agree to disagree on this one, no way do I feel haza is, or ever will be, in control.

I hope that Harry does not get the fake job like his brother had and fortunately left. I don't see how Harry was out of control at least he apologized for his stupid actions that you cited , Will OTOH was coated in teflon and protected. Charles had to apologize for what he did at least twice. I think both are spoiled. One thing the Queen needs to do: is  to hand Will and Harry and their spouses a list of duties and expect them to complete them or no perks and privileges allowed. I am tired of the laziness. I want both to step up to the plate.

Charles foisting Camilla on the public lowered the bar. Once that happened I think the Queen just gave up...

Harry showed exactly who he is by the way Mutsu was treated at the wedding. They ran an entire redemption campaign on that young man's back. Sold the public on them being close, him personally sponsoring his family. It's been years and whenever things seem to be going sideways for Harry, they pull this kid out of their back pockets. All of this yet he was made to stand outside amongst the rent-a-crowd. I wonder if they even saw fit to give the kid one of those cheap bags with the bottled water in it.

Harry has done a lot that can be forgiven and no one expects him to be infallible. He is human after all. But this? This I can't get past and any respect I had for him is gone. He's a user.

^ My thoughts exactly, when they showed the kid in the crowd (and all the bs sugray headlines how good Harry spotted him and greeted him - from 10m away!!! they made it sound as if H went to him and shook his hand ffs) I couldn't believe my eyes. So many headlines how he'd be invited to the wedding, I expected him in the church, not outside with the other anonymous sheeple. And then H's all hailed "greeting", yeah all the plebs were greeted that way. Poor kid probably thought he'd have the time of his life but was sidelined like all other dirty plebs and blatantly used for H's image.

Yeah Harry's done some real shyte, some can be forgiven, as you say we're all humans and no one is infallible, but that was class A shittery on a whole other level. That struck me quite a bit and made me think for ages, I either forgot to mention it here or it was buried under the frenzy.

What a shame but at the same time, i’d rather him stay outside instead of inside witnessing that bs of a wedding service. This poor chap was also said to have written to Harry for years and never received a reply. At the time, I thought that was the press trying to make Harry look bad. I just don’t know what to think of Harry any more. I’ve heard from people that’s associated to him that he’s out of control but I’ve also heard that he’s not as bad and crazy as people say; that he’s quiet and intuitive. Anyway, my pet peeve is that he’s been given a position from the queen to help the youth in the commonwealth. He’s alluded to not liking what social media’s doing to the younger generation but yet he’s married to this fame wh*re user who’s generating dumb clickbait articles and has young women of colour defending her and feel that she ideal for her role.  :o
Apparently, Harry did have his ring on when he left the gym.
So much money wasted on this whilst London’s crime goes up because of cutbacks to the police and the homeless people can’t get housing because of gentrification and foreign investors and the councils selling off their land and housing because they’re broke. It’s a mad world to say the least.

^ Even more proof that he doesn't give a flying f about Mutsu, if Mutsu wrote to him for years and the poor kid never received a reply.
The conflicting reports are quite sth, those are around about every Winds, but usually you can easily suss out the truth by looking at the source. We have plenty of reports of K being a bytch, but also some of her being very nice. The "very nice" ones usually come from her engagements, which negates their credibility; inside sources plus K's behaviour towards other women and similar very much prove the "she's a bytch" ones as right.
So with H we have to look at the source and surrounding circumstances. The problem though is also that it's easier to determine with Bill, b/c H is regularly thrown under the bus for his brother. It's a bit difficult, because in that sense reports about Bill can be more consistent. With Harry you might have to look a bit closer. I believe the "wild" reports, also that he's careless with people, if he were so warm and cared so much he would have treated Chelsy better (eg not picking her up from the airport, cheating) and Cress as well (wouldn't take her to the US wedding or pay for her flights, what a millionare gentleman). If he treats his GFs that way, then what does a poor kid from Africa really mean to him on a day to day basis? Fly in, do a bit of work, hug and go back home. Write personal letters back is, well, personal, and requires extra effort and caring.

Prince Harry makes an emotional return to Lesotho to open a new community hall for children on behalf of his charity Sentebale
His new wife the Duchess of Sussex has not accompanied him for his short trip to the country.
Kensington Palace confirmed that Harry is on a 'private visit' to Lesotho, which is connected with his work with Sentebale.
The Duke was also joined by friend and Sentebale ambassador Adam Bidwell on the visit.

Why Meghan Markle didn’t join Prince Harry in South Africa this weekend - where was she?
Prince Harry was in Lesotho for the opening of the centre’s new dining hall, helping to support and feed vulnerable children in the area.
Meghan is also known for her philanthropy, with the couple revealing in their engagement interview in 2017 that charity work helped them connect.
Harry made the flight alone last Thursday, just two days after appearing with Meghan at her Royal Ascot debut.
https://www.express.co.uk/life-style/life/979358/meghan-markle-prince-harry-south-africa-lesotho-sentebale-charity
Basically they’ve no idea why she didn’t go with him.  :bored:
Her pr excursion to Africa and India is what made them connect. She’s ditched all that faux caring now she has the ring.  No need really to waste her time sleping around the poor and less fortunate when she can hang out with her new bestie, the queen, and hobnob with the highbrow set at Ascot.  :cookie:

It is not uncommon for royal couples to do separate engagements even early on. I think it is following the same pattern that was used for William and Kate (right down to Kate's engagement with the Queen).

'He'll make an amazing dad!' Royal fans gush over a snap of Prince Harry with his friend's young daughter at a charity ball - after hailing Meghan's 'maternal instincts'
Royal fans have been gushing over a photograph of Prince Harry with a little girl - declaring that he'll make an 'amazing' dad'.
The picture shows Harry, 33, posing with friend Dean Stott's young daughter Mollie at the Wheels Down Ball in London on Tuesday night.
The sweet snap emerged after it was shared on Instagram by Dean's wife Alana, who wrote: 'What an amazing night and one little princess in particular was delighted to final meet her prince.'
Other social media users were quick to praise the snap after it was re-posted online, commenting that they 'can't wait' for Harry and new wife Meghan, 36, to have children.

Prince Harry will continue Diana's AIDS crusade by attending a symposium in Amsterdam hosted by Sir Elton John
Prince Harry will travel to the Netherlands later this month to meet those involved in a future Invictus Games, his Paralympic-style sporting event for wounded military veterans, due to be held at the Hague in 2020.
The Duke of Sussex is also expected to visit Amsterdam, where he will continue the work of his late mother, the Princess of Wales, by attending this year’s International Aids Conference.
Sir Elton John, who performed at Harry’s wedding reception in May and at Princess Diana’s funeral, will be holding a symposium at the conference aimed at reducing the stigma of the disease.
The singer will argue that the global HIV epidemic is fuelled by ignorance, fear and homophobia. Harry and Sir Elton appeared together at the Aids conference in Durban in 2016.
At the time, Prince Harry, whose charity Sentebale campaigns for greater awareness of the disease, said: ‘When my mother held the hand of a man dying of Aids in an East London hospital, no one would have imagined that over a quarter of a century later treatment would exist that could see HIV-positive people live full, healthy lives.’
Kensington Palace said any plans would be revealed in due course.

At the very least, they're going the opposite direction of what they went with Kate and are deciding to not push forward a woman that they know isn't going to do anything, and are trying to avoid giving false impressions in the first place.

It seems to me that she's doing the same thing Kate did as a newlywed. THe engagement with the Queen and a tour the first year. Except thankfully there is no "two year grace period" that the QUeen very allegedly gave Kate and the inordinate amount of time it took Kate to "research" her charity selections. I don't see any sign of her being hidden out. ANd it may take ages for Kate to work.
