Singing for Grandma! Prince Harry belts out God Save the Queen as he joins rugby fans in the stands to watch England beat Wales 12-6 in nail-biting Six Nations clash

He's busy preparing for his forthcoming nuptials to Meghan Markle at St George's Chapel, in Windsor Castle.

But Prince Harry found enough time to sneak off to Twickenham on Saturday to watch England and Wales do battle in the Six Nations Rugby Championship.

The fifth in line for the throne was pictured enjoying the match from the Royal Box alongside ex-professionals and rugby officials from both sides of the border.

And it was all smiles for the prince by the end of the match as England ran out 12-6 victors a thrilling contest.

Not true - once you are in the EU you can travel freely on many, many passports e.g. I entered the EU in France some years ago and never had to show my passport while travelling throughout the EU. I was there for seven weeks and after the day I entered Paris the only other time my passport was checked was when I left Athens. All the flights were regarded as 'domestic' once inside the EU.

Last year I went from Dublin to Belfast by coach and then flew to London and again at no time was my passport checked.

As far as I know from a friend of mine who went through this - if you do not have a passport from EU country, or a family member from EU country, then if you travel to France you get a visa for France and not the whole EU. Once inside EU there still are borders and there still are checkups on the airports. The only way I can think that your passport will not be checked at the airport is when you show your ID and can travel with your ID only.

For MM it may not  be so free movement to other EU country. For example, if PH was to go to a royal, work event in Italy and MM accompanied him, she'll be breaching whatever her visa status is because a +1 on a work engagement is assumed to be at work and freedom of movement in EU is allowed to EU citizens only.

Post by: HRHOlya on February 11, 2018, 08:26:15 pm
^^ & ^ Things have also changed in the last 2-3 years. Some borders are active again, after years of inactivity, or "makeshift" borders are pulled up, where only suspicous looking cars get pulled aside, speed is low (so they can look at you/ your car), but flowy (no stops, except for who gets pulled aside). You can't travel quite that freely anymore. If your documents are in order, then of course you have nothing to fear, but you should anticipate checks and if by car assume that you'll be in jams, so calculate a bit of extra time in.

And yes, there are check-ups at airports, you must show some sort of ID (ID card or passport) and it must be in regulation with your country, i.e. a US citizen must show their passport, their ID card won't get them anywhere.

It depends on your citizenship whether you can travel to whatever country, and the hallmark isn't even the EU, but the Schengen agreement. That means for example the UK is part of the EU but not a part of Schengen. So someone from even a European country (non member of either EU or Schengen) might be able to travel freely within the EU - but would need a visa for the UK (not even at entry, but applied for in advance!). Even if that person is eg a permanent resident of France and has that visa (US equivalent the Green Card - next step if one wants to take would be citizenship), they still are not allowed to bypass the visa requirements for the UK, because no one cares what visa you have, it's the citizenship that counts and the agreements between the two countries.

Whoever plans on travelling should always check their visa requirements exactly and for all countries they intend to visit.

I don't know how it is for American citizens and how freely US citizens can travel across Europe. Murkles's UK visa won't count for anything except her life and intentions in the UK, as it's not a tourist travel visa for either EU nor Schengen.

As far as I know, only EU citizens can travel with their ID card across the EU (incl entry into the UK - I guess once Brexit strikes that'll be over). EU citizens can even enter non-EU and non-Schengen countries with their ID card only, but not in all cases. Citizens of those countries on the other hand cannot enter the EU or Schengen area with their ID cards only!

A Schengen visa exists too for (non-EU & non-Schengen) travellers.

It's all a touch more complicated than just going by the EU measurement!

The simple answer though is, M can accompany H to Italy if US citizens can travel freely without a visa requirement to Italy or gain it at entry (like EU citizens gain at US entry) or if she applies in advance. As it seems to be work related it's a bit iffy, but officially she's not part of the Firm yet and doesn't work for them or on their behalf, so normal tourist requirements are enough.

Six Nations 2018: Prince Harry in crowd but no sign of Meghan Markle for England v Wales

Prince William and Prince Harry are patrons of the Welsh and English Rugby Unions respectively and it was the latter who was out in force at the Twickenham Stoop for the early afternoon kick-off.

England take on Wales' men's side at 4.45pm across the road at Twickenham.

Ahead of the clash Dylan Hartley challenged England fans to out-sing the Welsh and roar them on to victory.

England are heavy favourites to beat injury-hit Wales as they chase down an historic hat-trick of Six Nations titles.

They have beaten Wales five times in their last six meetings and have not lost at HQ in the Six Nations since 2012.

Did Harry take aim at Theresa May with jibe about ‘strong leadership’ remark? Charity boss claims the Prince criticised divided government
Quote
The charity’s founder, Nary Wijeratne, said: ‘He said that we don’t have “a strong government”.’
The comments, which may be taken by some as a criticism of Theresa May, appeared to go against the convention that the Royal Family does not air political views.
But last night Kensington Palace said Harry’s remarks had been misinterpreted.
A spokesman said: ‘Prince Harry was not talking about the Government. These remarks were made in the context of community projects rather than central government. He had a very enjoyable visit.’
http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-5397793/Prince-said-lack-strong-leadership-says-charity-boss.html
Funny because he’s not in any position to talk about a government being weak as he’s in a bit of a fix himself that could be construed as him being weak allowing himself to get involved with a very unsuitable and unsavory grifter.  :cookie:

As far as costs of weddings, it is up to the Queen to put a limit on the price. Supposedly Charles "Duchy Money" and the Queen are paying for the cost of the wedding. The cost to taxpayers is for security. All I know is whenever I complained in blogs and comments about how much Charles' children spend I get replies that it is "Duchy money."

29 August Hamilton play
Back to work! Harry and Meghan will resume their royal duties after the summer with a gala performance of Hamilton - following their secret date night at the hip hop musical
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex will attend a gala performance of the hit musical Hamilton in support of Sentebale, Kensington Palace has announced.
The evening will raise awareness and funds for Sentebale's work with children and young people affected by HIV in southern Africa, the palace said.
A spokesman for the hit show confirmed the couple's ‘private visit’ back in February, while a fellow audience member told the Mail: ‘They seemed to love it and were applauding enthusiastically.’

4 September Well Child award
Less than a week after their visit to Hamilton, on 4 August, Harry and Meghan will attend the annual WellChild Awards at The Royal Lancaster Hotel.
-the reporter made a mistake on the dates.
http://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/article-6079339/Prince-Harry-Meghan-Markle-attend-gala-performance-Hamilton.html
The only positive thing about this is that with Meghan in the headlines, the article will get opened and read but the comments are usually scathing towards her, Harry and the pair of them together, so in the end, the cause what should be the highlight only decends into dumb articles about her so it ends up a complete waste of time them attending any events.
I guess all of Harry’s engagements will have to include her whether she shows up or not. It’s just bad for the organizers of events they attend won’t get the proper coverage and the press isn’t to blame, only the poor, idiotic choice of Harry choosing her for his bride and partner in his charitable causes.
Mods please move if this isn’t the correct thread.

One engagement on 29 August and then the next on 4 September.  Dearie me, such hard work.  I imagine many people would love to live the luxury life and do one engagement a week.  Do they really think they are still pulling the wool over the eyes of the public, if so they are very sadly mistaken, seen through the both of them now.  Used to think Harry was okay, but he is rock bottom in my estimation, and has gone down in the estimation of many other people.  The sugars will defend them whatever, but then let´s face it, most of the sugars are OAP´s/very old school, and without wishing to sound harsh, but a sad fact of life, a lot of them might not be here to see this pans out in the next 10-15  years is a possiiblity.  No sugars left, drat, how inconvenient for the "modern" rf members.  IMO, at the moment HM keeps the thing poorly glued together, once her reign ends look out, the skeletons will be rattling out of the cupboard fast, and another factor to consider is that the UK is filled with immigrants/refugees from many countries around the world, with different religions, ethics and etc. etc.  Will they want to fund that family to the tune of over 400 million per year, plus protection costs, property maintenance and etc.  The rf is nothing to them and never will be, and they will consider the money poorly spent when it could be spent on them.   I personally think that the rf need to take a wake up call and see what is happening around them instead of staying inside their cosy, luxurious, tax funded  cocoon.  Times have changed so much, the rf are pretty superfluous, especially now the "younger" ones appear to want to be in with the celebrity crowd, and hm letting in trailer trash like the medds and the markles, that really was a very, very bad move on her part.

I think you are confusing the Field of Remembrance Ceremony with the Festival of Remembrance.

The Field of Remembrance was done by the Queen Mum for most years post WWII before she handed it over to Philip in the 1990s and he handed it to Harry a few years ago. This is the ceremony, on the Thursday or Friday night where they plant the crosses. New wives do not traditionally attend this ceremony.

The Festival of Remembrance is the event in the Royal Albert Hall that the Queen attends. Last year neither William nor Harry attended as they both went to the rugby. I wouldn't be surprised if they both went to the rugby again next week - especially when Wales is playing Australia and England is playing New Zealand. All these countries have no issue commemorating their war dead by playing sport (both Australia and New Zealand also have cricket matches scheduled for the 11th November itself).

Post by: meememe on November 05, 2018, 09:02:52 pm
The event you are describing is the event at the Centotaph on Remembrance Sunday not the Field of Remembrance event which takes place a few days earlier.

There are multiple events for Remembrance in the UK:

1. Field of Remembrance on the Thursday or Friday before Remembrance Sunday - usually only one royal attends although both Philip and Harry attended once or twice during the handover period. Diana didn't attend this event as Charles has never attended. This is the event when they fill the space near the Palace of Westminster and Westminster Abbey with crosses.

2. Festival of Remembrance at the Royal Albert Hall on the Saturday night before Remembrance Sunday - the one that everyone criticised William and Harry for missing last year because they went to the rugby instead. Diana and Kate usually attended this event and sat in the royal box

3. The Cenotaph on Remembrance Sunday - where the wives stand on the balcony (and now where the Queen and Philip also stand on the balcony). Diana and Kate were/are always on the balcony for this event

4. The March Past - where the veterans march past the Cenotaph after the above ceremony - there is a rotation of royals who take the salute at this event every year

5. Charles attends the Guards event most years

6. Usually an event at the arborotoreum - this is one where the Dukes of Gloucester or Kent usually preside although I seem to remember William doing it once.

All events from #3 - #6 are on Remembrance Sunday.

It's not like they're good for anything else. Neither were well educated or held to any kind of intellectual/academic standard and Harry wasn't held to any behavioral standards during his teens and twenties (crucial times to develop a personality) and so he didn't develop or mature. Also, since he doesn't have any of his mother's spark or gumption (something I believe has more to do with innate nature than anything else) he just devolved into a shiftless good for nothing loser. William went to uni, but we all know how that has turned out and go figure he is just as useless to his nation.

But both brothers (and Kate) have been given patronages in sports that are important within British society; soccer, rugby and tennis. And when they appear at these games or training sessions etc they are performing their roles as patrons. I don't think any of them regard it as work as such, just as part of their roles as members of the BRF.

Plus, these appearances at sporting events are recorded in the CC. Neither brother is responsible for what goes into the Court Circular and what stays out. It's the Queen who oversees this record and signs off on it.

I really do think Harry and Meg should give up on being taken seriously; a rugby match as a form of work? A day at work?

Do you know which member of the BRF attends the most Rugby matches as part of their work? Anne.

She misses very few Scotland matches - either the internationals at this time of the year when the Southern Hemisphere countries are visiting or in the early part of next year when the six nations are taking place. She regularly travels to France or Italy for the day when Scotland plays there.

The royals are attending because they are the patrons - just as they go to tennis, golf, sailing, the Olympics, the Commonwealth Games, the Invictus games etc.

They are all sports and they are also involved at a very high level with the sport itself.

Harry, like Anne, often travels overseas to go to sporting events and sometimes tack on other events.

No one seems to criticise Anne for her sporting involvement - only the Wales princes and Andrew yet the Duchess of Gloucester and Duke of Kent regularly travel the world for tennis (and the Duke of Kent used to go overseas a lot when he was President of the FA - a position William now holds).

Sport is a big part of the British and the Commonwealth cultures so it does make sense that the members of the BRF are seen at sporting events and take part in ceremonies at such events such as the laying of the wreath at the Rugby today.

This is one of the biggest rugby matches of the year - the greatest international sporting team in history (winning record in international matches over the past century plus is at over 75%) against the mother country who invented the sport. For a country with a population as small as New Zealand to have a national team that dominates the sport - and a fully international sport played all over the world - is amazing. I personally am hoping for a great game and expect an All Black victory (and to make it a great ANZAC weekend I expect the Wallabies to defeat Wales as well).

Going back into the 20s and 30s the then Duke of York was heavily involved in sporting events to promote healthy youth and was often seen at places like Wimbledon (he even competed in the doubles on year).

When Prince Philip joined the family he took on a number a patronages to do with sport - some of his earliest e.g. 12th man of the Lords Taverners - which is a cricket associated organisation and he attended the test matches as work through the 40s up at least 2015 (I was at the Lord's Test when he attended and his standard was raised over the English dressing room).

In 1988 Prince Charles came to Australia for the Bi-Centenary and included in that visit was a visit to the SCG for the Bicentennial test. He even brought the Ashes Urn to Australia so we could see it up close for the first time in over 100 years since its creation.

In 1977 the Queen and Philip did a Commonwealth tour for the Queen's Jubilee - what was the crucial setting for the timing of the visit to Australia - the Centenary Cricket Test - the 100th anniversary of the first ever cricket test between England and Australia. The dates were set as the same ones from 1877 and the result was exactly the same - Australia by 44 runs.

Sport and sporting patronages have long been a major aspect of the work of the BRF going back before the CC e.g. Queen Anne and her connection to Ascot continues to this day, Edward VII also was a regular at the races and again it was work.

The Queen herself has rarely missed the sports that she enjoys and no one seems to criticise her for classing 6+ days a year at the races as sport as she has done for her entire reign.

It seems it is only the Wales princes who are criticised despite the fact that it is a tradition within the family going back at least into the early 1700s that watching and participating in sport is part of the work of the BRF.

Princess Anne works her a$$ off in a regular and steady way.  Same goes for HM and PP.  It’s called balance.  I don’t begrudge Anne or any of the steadfast royals a minute supporting a sports event. Harry or any of these swanning around young royal brothers pale deeply by comparison. 


Title: Re: Prince Harry's Engagements 2018
Post by: Rosella on November 10, 2018, 03:35:23 am
These patronages that the Wales brothers and Kate hold though have been appointed to or have inherited from other royals. None of the younger royals (or older ones) would go around saying 'I really love watching tennis...or rugby...or soccer, so I'll have that position, thanks!' All patronages are shared and handed around the royal family, however many engagements each individual performs each year. And if the Queen didn't wish those sporting patronages to be given to the younger royals they wouldn't be.


Title: Re: Prince Harry's Engagements 2018
Post by: meememe on November 10, 2018, 05:08:23 am
The older royals work hard now but ... when they were younger they started with sporting patronages as they were young and fit e.g. Philip's first patronages when he became a royal were to do with sport and promoting sport (National Playing Fields and cricket). Anne started with equestrian and sailing events amongst her first engagements - even before she became a full-time working royal in her early 30s.

She built up her workload over the decades but she started with more sporting ones and Save the Children.

The Wales boys are starting much the same way - largely sporting with some serious ones but adding more and more serious engagements etc as they get older.

It is the way the BRF works.

Title: Re: Prince Harry's Engagements 2018
Post by: lesken on November 10, 2018, 03:55:22 pm
If sporting events are not considered work but just something they do and are involved in like most people that just go to a professional game as opposed to be in it, then do they even work? What is considered work? Going to a garden party or a premier or attending a parade or ceremony that other people volunteer to attend? Do they work? I guess not. The Queen does because she has to sign in the laws and such. Like I said on another thread being a patron of some charity is like being on the Board which is a voluntary thing for many. So they just volunteer like others and the taxpayers pay for their lavish life style and the duchies do which are not taxed the same if taxed. What a scam. So I wonder what next fun sporting event Harry must attend to be productive in society.


Title: Re: Prince Harry's Engagements 2018
Post by: Rosella on November 10, 2018, 04:51:34 pm
These different sports, associations and Clubs like Wimbledon seek royal patronage though, as it brings publicity to the sport, allows photo-opportunities with members of royal families (not just the BRF ) presenting trophies, and lends a fair bit of prestige to the game, especially if the Royal concerned keenly follows the sport he/she is patron of.

I think it's really important to remember that the royals don't impose their patronages from above. Instead these organisations ask for their patronage. And things like garden parties allow people to attend and maybe have a chat to a Royal who is patron of the charity in which an individual is involved.

I know that when Charles held that garden party earlier this year for his birthday (the one attended by Harry/Meghan) most of the guests were from his charities like the Princes Trust, and from clips afterwards those that attended were really happy they did so.

^ So the question is for all of them and especially someone like Harry who is not even in line for anything, do they work? Because  seeing people at a party that admire you is recreational sounding. You get to chat, eat and drink in nice surroundings while doing  a good deed by attending. People attend those events and hold actual jobs. It seems they don't work except for making sure their pr is good so they can continue living off the taxpayer in Crown Estates, I consider the duchies and the income Crown Estates as it is put in the treasury to take out, not a bank. So other than keeping up appearances so people want to see them at recreational type events, including the ceremonies, what do they do that is considered actual work now?

Rosella; the BRF could easily write a check for ten times that amount and not feel any loss. Royals used to watch and participate in sports as a form of blowing off steam while carrying the nation on their shoulders. Neither William or Harry carry the nation on their shoulders and neither prince are serving their nation in any substantial capacity. I do not believe either prince gives a rat's arse about anyone other than themselves and anything other than their own gratification. They are essentially male socialites and for some reason, the British taxpayer is supposed to fork over hundreds of millions of pounds for them to play at being charitable.

^ So the question is for all of them and especially someone like Harry who is not even in line for anything, do they work? Because  seeing people at a party that admire you is recreational sounding.

At this point in time, I really do not see their purpose. Neither prince is in fact going to actually do much with their lives and neither was trained or raised to make anything of themselves. Neither prince has contributed to his nation and regrettably they were allowed to slack off when they should have been getting training. Their 'role' is strictly ornamental and what they do, most politicians do, along with their wives. They are of not help whatsoever to their people and government. I am certain that neither prince is aware of just how much time they've wasted on the most pointless pursuits possible.

I'm also fed up with being expected to feel sorry for them, sick of being expected to see them sacrifice their nation's well being to the selfish gratification that they INSIST on indulging in, but also shoving down everyone's throats.

Harry goes to two or three of these types of board meetings each year to do with one or other wildlife charity - African Parks is the main one. He usually adds on a visit to such a park which would justify the expense of the trip over a skype session.

As this trip, though, is at the request of the FCO there will, no doubt, also be meetings with government leaders which will also mean some sort of talks behind the scenes.

When senior royals do overseas tours there is always at least one, if not more than one, government official who is there to talk about business or other issues with the local government but they do so under the radar of the royal visit (why royal visits are described as 'soft diplomacy' because the business side of things isn't the focus of the visit).

EDEN CONFIDENTIAL: Prince Harry holds private meeting with victims of knife crime in a bid to curb youth violence
While Meghan was meeting survivors of the Grenfell Tower disaster on Wednesday, Harry held a ‘round table discussion’ with young people from MAC UK.
It’s an organisation based in the East End of London that tries to engage with youths who’ve been sucked into gangs or become mired in anti-social activity.
Harry is proving as good as his word because he announced in the summer that he planned to target the cause of deadly knife crime.
‘At the end of last year, knife crime skyrocketed,’ he said. ‘But [it] is a symptom of a cause. So therefore go and speak to the young people.’
He is using the Royal Foundation, which he heads with Meghan and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, to run a project where young people will give their views on the root causes.
A Kensington Palace spokesman declines to comment on the ‘private’ meeting, but a source tells me: ‘It was held so that funders of MAC UK could hear directly from young people about what they think the solutions to youth violence are.’
https://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-6423521/Prince-Harry-holds-private-meeting-victims-knife-crime.html
Such nonsense trying to add her to the engagement. This is a serious issue that needs total focus on solutions; hence the attention seeker was absent.

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry to split for royal engagement after exhausting tour
Prince Harry is set to travel to Zambia on Monday for a two day visit next week on the request of the Foreign Office. The prince will be visiting the British High Commission in Zambia's capital, Lusaka, to honour the UK's long-standing relationship with the southern African country. However, Meghan will not be joining Harry for the overseas trip.
Royal expert Richard Fitzswilliams told Express.co.uk: "When Prince Harry goes to Zambia on 26th and 27th November at the request of the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, it will mean he will be apart from Meghan on the anniversary of their engagement.  :cookie:
"Meghan will not be accompanying him as she has recently undertaken an exhaustive four-nation tour of the Pacific and is thought to be between four and five months pregnant.”  :tehe:
Meghan, who is between four to five months pregnant, might also notably skip a couple of engagements in the next few weeks to come, but will try and complete "as many duties" as she can.
Mr Fitzwilliams added: "Prince Harry’s schedule in Zambia consists of a series of events mostly linked to youth, the military and conservation which are among the causes which he has helped the most.
"Meghan will obviously be pacing herself in the months to come but she and Harry have had busy schedules recently and she will undoubtedly do as many duties as she possibly can."

I don't want to sound stereotypist or racist but who in the gun era is doing knife fights? Also, why meet with the victims. Why not work on bringing those knife *fools* to justice.


Knife crime in the UK is on a par with gun violence in the US. Also acid attacks. Acid attacks & knife crime are on a constant rise and seem to be insurmountable problems in the UK (well, mostly England really). Also moped gangs. And gang crime...

That to me is the part that doesn't make sense - not going to Zambia because of the Zika virus but happy to go to Fiji and Tonga which both have the Zika Virus. Something isn't right here - either Harry doesn't want her or she was never going and this is a made up story or something else is the real reason (I wouldn't be surprised if HM is clipping her wings a bit given the negative press at the moment). It could also be a health issue and not zika specifically but the doctors telling her not to fly ...

^ :thumbsup: but much too late now to say doctors told her not to fly.
The discrepancies about her bump as seen in the expecting thread tells me she’s not pregnant and is trying to bide her time thinking that her nasty self won’t be expose or she’s trying to embarrass the royal family into paying her off. What ticks me off is that is that the knife crime issue and other serious issues Harry has and wants to get involved with is being highjacked by his attention seeking grifter ‘wife.’

Not one official quote from KP about viruses or Meghan supposedly going on this trip, but as usual the Fail pads this short article out with its usual 'it is believed' and 'palace insiders' (unnamed of course.)

Harry will be nearing the 200 engagement mark at the end of the year and this will boost his numbers. Meghan's total as a new married-in doesn't need boosting. She's already done more than 100 after marrying in mid-May and can rest on her laurels until next year, especially as she did 24 engagements before marriage 

The official announcement from KP was that Harry was to do this two day tour to Zambia alone, as usual at the request of the FO and CO. IMO if it had been intended, ever, that Meghan was to go on this trip then she would have been included in the announcement.

^according to this chap, it’s not an official trip.

Flying solo! Prince Harry touches down in Zambia for a two-day visit without Meghan - amid reports the pregnant duchess was set to join but dropped out due to Zika scare
Officially, Harry was always supposed to make the trip alone in his role as president of African Parks but palace insiders have said that it was intended to be a joint visit.
To date, there have been no recorded cases of Zika virus disease in Zambia, but countries bordering the African nation to the north are considered risk areas.
https://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/article-6429491/Prince-Harry-arrives-Zambia-WITHOUT-Meghan.html
It sounds like Harry was always scheduled to go alone and Meghan’s gaslighting just like she did with his other event when he alone met with youth to deal with the knife crimes.
The Zambian government isn’t amused with the Zika articles in the British press due to Meghan’s lies to them.

Neither KP nor Meghan claimed that she wasn't going to Zambia because of the Zika virus. Neither of them claimed that she was going at all, ever. The announcement from KP stated that Harry was going on a mini-tour to Zambia for two days at the request of the FO/CO. Meghan was never mentioned.

 It was the DM which carried on the next day that Harry was going WITHOUT Meghan, (as if no Royal ever goes on a visit overseas without their spouse and therefore there was something weird about it!)

And it was followed by another tabloid, the Sun, claiming a couple of days ago that Meghan wasn't going because of this virus. So it was this tabloid who made up the story and it's the tabloid who printed it who will have to retract it. The Zambian government isn't happy about this made up garbage by the Sun.

The Fail insinuated the next day that there was something strange in Meghan not going, (Why? Lots of royals visit places without their spouses.)

Meghan again said nothing about this trip. Neither did Harry. Why does KP have to comment? It was the Sun who made up the story about Meghan not going because of Zika. Harry, Meghan and KP said nothing about her going in the first place.

If the Sun journos want to exercise their vivid imaginations and in doing so offend other countries then they will have to wear the consequences and retract this fairy tale. Chris Ship is a head of ITN and is just commenting on the made-up Sun story.

MeAgain probably didn't want to compete with a rare rhino. There are three, and a horn, in this marriage.  :June:

Guess MeAgain's American PR team never heard of it, so of course she wouldn't go. Probably thought Zambia was a new clothing line from Kourtney Kardashian or a new action hero.

^ You have eyes.... look he is smiling with a glint in his eye .and relaxed. Just because he wanted to marry her doesn't mean it is good for him. I appreciate Diana for what she brought to the world in terms of awareness, charity but she had mental problems and it has been suggested BPD which she certainly had some characteristics. And in those boys lives, there were blow ups and drama scenes and such hostility between parents. My God she had Bulimia and tried to cut herself and commit suicide or at least injure herself when pregs with Wills. MeAgain may bring up that emotional volatile feeling they had going on in the background which had to be there. And the trauma of losing their mom and wanting to fix it. MeAgain or the Murks as I like to call her, may be attractive to him on a negative level. He has the chance to fix it for mom who was misunderstood, outspoken, a changer and a drama queen in the palace and in the press as well when Diana let it rip. I remember well. Diana has transgressed in death her humanness to sainthood in people's opinions and as a martyr. But she had severe emotional flaws. So does MeAgain but in a bad toxic way. Harry could well be attracted to that on a subliminal level. But it is not good and it shows in many photos. This is just my opinion but if you objectively look at Diana, I can see why Harry is drawn to M but it may not be in his best interest in the long run when the emotional issue come out.

Something would have to be really wrong with Harry if he looks "happier" without his wife. He married her and if he felt this relief, he would be a hypocrite.

Diana had no mental problems. She did not have BPD. She had Bulimia Nervosa that she got under control. Why the Diana bashing, lesken? And it does belong on another thread. What does this have to do with Harry's engagements.  Diana was very well liked because she ADMITTED she had flaws.

I think Harry and William learned NOT to be like their father. Thank heavens.

Comment:
Miriam, Zero Tolerance For Narcissists, United Kingdom, 3 hours ago
Meghan is not pregnant. Zambia doesn't have the Zika virus. And Meghan happily visited Fiji and Tonga who do have the Zike virus. I bet Harry loves being away from her.

There’s suggestions that Harry might stay longer in Africa after this trip ends. I hope he does as the press continues to finish off Meghan’s image and expose the grifter for what she really is. She has a visa with the right to stay but not to abide meaning that she’ll need permission to enter the U.K. when she leave as well as required to renew her visa in the States if i’m not mistaken. Her time should be up this month then.
Anyway, it’s good to see Harry really smile again.

Any bets now that Harry has done his duty, he no longer even cares about being around his wife that much? Like how Kate's pregnancy seemed to free William in a way, just not in the romantic sense. After Kate got pregnant, he seemed to be away more and more and now he's around Jecca as much as possible.

^Probably.  Every marriage goes through a let down period but these two moved like lightening with all kinds of excitement so the come down is undoubtedly harder.  A big thud no doubt.  Something tells me she’s putting on weight, too, and, yes, I believe he’s that shallow.  I think she’s hiding out partly because she’s packing it on and she’s definitely that shallow.  In short, the thrill is gone.  Happens all the time.

I think the real issue, is that after all the hype, Harry and Meg expected to be in demand via world leaders all over the world. Meg might have thought that she would get a position in the UN and make speeches and pound on a desk shrieking at men all day and make decisions that affect the course of current history. Harry might have expected to sit in on conferences and discuss economics or trade or some other topic (despite not being able to sound literate and concise). Yet, as with WK, both Harry and Meg are doing fluff stuff and it's not like diplomats are obligated to verify with them if they should be doing one thing or another. Harry's appearances are fluff and I think he might think Meg let him down and he realizes that there was never going to be any kind of 'launch' for him on the serious global forum.

And let's not forget that its Meghan's behavior too that the public doesn't adore.  :tehe:

I don't think everybody disapproves of Meghan. She can't just be ousted after a few months. She needs to learn. And I don't think some on DM want to even give her a chance, and never did. HEr behavior is not that bad. She seems to be slammed for touching her husband on tours, not wearing the most attractive or well fit outfits, giving speeches and so on.

^^  That rings true to me Yooper.  The letdown after the big wedding, baby announcement and first overseas tour must be pretty strong.  Also, I think Harry thought Meham would be adored by the public as much as he adores her, and as much as his mother was adored.  That was never going to happen, mostly because of social media.

I also believe that Harry mistakenly thought that the public's love for him to would continue and he would be able to coast on that for life. He certainly was high on the adoration for creating and promoting and hosting Invictus, but go figure, that crashed once he announced his relationship, started shrieking that the press was persecuting her and starting up with the usual BS narrative of evil aristocrats and evil harassing stalking press (as if Meg herself hadn't been promoting herself all the time), and saying how EVIL the world is to her and him and how the courtiers (everyone's favorite scapegoat) kept dumping on her like she is some eternal victim.

^^  Very true KF.  Harry's popularity increased due to his work with Invictus.  Some were even talking about him having the potential to be a better king than William.  My my, how that has changed.  I, for one, think that his statement to the press to back off of his then girlfriend was the start of his downward slide.  I think that was in 2016, right?  If so, here we are, two years later, and many are unhappy with the behavior of his wife - myself included.  As many here have pointed out, she seems to be using the BRF as a stepping stone to something else (UN humanitarian, US political role, who knows).  She doesn't impress me at all with her trendy 'empower women' talk.  It is an incredibly vague term that could mean many different things.  I also don't see her as being very smart intellectually, because of what she says.  All IMHO, of course!

The "backing off messages" are part of RF for decades. The Queen issued a "back off Diana" statement when she was pregnant with William. William even hired attorneys. And what Harry's doing is not a "first" for royals. They are hung up on privacy issues and use damage control for criticism. This is par for the course.

^ Diana was the Princess of Wales, pregnant with an heir, who was being hounded in a way no other royal has ever been.  Diana-mania, circa 1982. 

Meanwhile, Meggles was a z-list actress whom no one knew or was interested in.  She told Harry her house had been broken into [false; it hadn't] and got him all stirred up thinking bad things were happening, so he foolishly stepped in to save her.  Now she's running around with a pillow in her Spanx trying to get someone to take her photo.   

Worlds away from the Diana situation, bless her heart.

^Exactly.

Thing is, that Diana was hounded in a way that was unprecedented and always will be. I believe Harry overreacted because he thinks that the press is as excited about Meg as he is and made the mistake of thinking that any kind of substantial media coverage is somehow more than it actually is. Second, the press covers the both of them since they are legally recognized representatives of their nation.

I think a pregnancy is a pregnancy.Carrying Heir or no heir, the royal women should not be stalked or bothered, if that is the case. Meghan is entitled to security officers and has them.

Diana was different because she was barely out of her teens, just married and having an uncomfortable pregnancy. She could not even walk to town (with security) to buy something in a store without cameras on her. I don't think it mattered if the baby was  heir or not.  Kate and Meghan were not 20 year olds when they married in. One was pushing 30 the other was 37. Diana was comparatively sheltered.

^.   No, Sandy.  The difference is that Diana was married to a royal and pregnant with an heir when the queen had to tell the press to back off.

Chicken Legs was not married or pregnant when she lied to Harry that her house had been broken into and she was skeered.  And then he foolishly wrote that letter.  They were not even engaged.  That is the difference.

Not to mention what KF and I were discussing -- Megs is not being hounded -- she seeks out attention.

Before she started dating Harry, Meg was an actress, who was eager for attention since that is how she got roles and auditions. She did that asinine grilling video and had done sleazy poses for men's magazines and was someone who was doing idiotic speeches for the UN and eager to get press coverage. She was no some shrinking flower and she was not someone who was afraid of the thought of being married to a prince who would bring her a title and world platform.

Meghan received Mr Rolf Norris, Director of the National Theatre yesterday, an engagement placed in the CC. However the Queen is the Patron of the National Theatre so I'm wondering if this patronage is one which HM may pass over to Meghan next year. Meghan is due to announce her patronages very early in the New Year.

Harry did an engagement today regarding gang crime, but by the looks of him, it looks like Charles took over or he was upset listening to the harrowing stories that were being told.

'Enough is enough!': Prince Charles calls for end to gang violence as he's joined in Clarence House by son Harry, Tom Hardy, Gareth Southgate and Tinie Tempah to meet families devastated by bloodshed
* Prince of Wales and Duke of Sussex join discussion about youth violent crime at Clarence House in London
* Charles calls for a renewed effort to 'make a dent' in violence responsible for 'appalling' human disasters

It was Harry’s idea to get involved with trying to get solutions to this situation and just like Wills taking over his idea about mental health, Charles seems to be doing the same with this. Harry’s taking a massive beating and it seems like the two selfish Kong’s in waiting have no issue letting him know he’s just the spare they won’t let into the spotlight on his own again, IMO. Now that Charles put himself into this, there has to be action that’ll make an immediate and meaningful impact for the vulnerable kids.

This event was a Prince's Trust event at Clarence House to which Harry was invited.

Charles has been interested in, and concerned, with youth issues for decades. That is what The Prince's Trust has been all about. He isn't 'taking over' from Harry but rather introducing Harry to his far more extensive network of connections that can help in this regard.

Of course Charles took the lead - he is the Prince of Wales and Harry is the second son who is willing to learn from his father and to use his father's connections in the areas of youth disengagement (the focus of the Prince's Trust has been to help young people turn their lives around). This is an area where father and son can use their own knowledge and interests to work together rather than both sit back and keep doing what they have been doing in isolation of each other. They will probably achieve a lot more together.

The royals take very little notice of the tabloid media, if they even bother to read it. Sometimes they may react but by and large they ignore it and get on with their plans.

This event isn't something cobbled together in the past week or so. This has been months in the planning as are all royal engagements, except when reacting to a tragedy when an immediate response is needed but things like this take weeks and even months to put together.

I was glad to see Harry at this round table conference, actually, as I think the Princes Trust is an absolutely fabulous organisation, started by Charles in 1976. He heard, by chance, a radio talk from a youth worker about the problems of young offenders just out of jail, some of which appalled him, and he wanted to help. The Trust has assisted over 900,000 young people at risk of homelessness, alienation and unemployment etc in its existence and created nearly 400,000 young entrepreneurs. Harry has been interested in youth crime and its causes for several years, and I really hope that he takes over at least some of the causes that the Trust champions in the future.
