This will be the 2nd place where Harry's taking this phony where black British youth are doing things that are positive. IMO, she could care less about that only in the press she'll get and to stick it to the naysayers regarding why she's still around. Is her presence part of a marketing/pr effort to engage people of colour to view the royals differently? It's not working with this phony who people see right through. It's insulting to people of colour. Harry was doing fine including all people prior to getting involved with this  :think: woman. Comments aren't good regarding her inclusion.

^I think Harry has done his fair share of visits to organizations that help people of color prior to Meghan to not make it seem like he is doing it all of a sudden because he is marrying a half-black woman.

It certainly looks it, though. But us veteran Harry watchers should know that that is not the case.

The American press may pounce on it because they are racism watchers and probably don't recall that Harry has always enjoyed helping out in Africa.

As a black woman, I resent this pandering campaign H&M seem to be on. Everything I need to know about how M really feels about black people is reflected in her choice of friends (not her so called celebrity friends) and the fact that her mother is trotted out when its convenient.

^exactly. I'd love this too bit strumpet to be called out on her hypocrisy. Funny how Harry's the real one who's really putting the spotlight on things that that effect black British youth. The comments are really going after her more so than Harry. They basically saying she'll pretend to care whilst putting on her pretend concerned face.

I'm willing to give them(her) the benefit of the doubt. Being the daughter of a Social Worker (a very underpaid, underappreciated & overworked profession),  heavily media covered visits to charities geared toward people of color in the  United Kingdom would be great (hopefully this will open the  doors to more forward thinking programs).
Lord knows in the US the severe cuts in Art & After School Programs has had devastating effects. Some communities have independently networked and now have sponsorships. Now if it's  January 2, 2019, and there's  nothing then.........

Meghan and Harry will meet presenters, content producers, volunteers and staff involved in the Reprezent training programme which was set up in Peckham in 2008 in response to an alarming rise in knife crime.
The programme has helped more than 4,000 young people develop and socialise by learning media and workplace skills at the radio station, and is viewed as a hotbed of emerging UK music talent.
It also offer support to young people with mental issues, a cause very close to Prince Harry's heart.

on duty? I'm sorry but this is an American tv actress and always will be for most of the world, even if she will be named a duchess after her wedding. There's a lot of nasty rumors about her past and her former relationships. Is she supposed to represent British monarchy from now? I that case, I can't imagine how can we take it seriously.

Really can¿t take to this person at all. She seems so superficial.

They are just using these kids for PR stunt its ridiculous. He should have been doing this instead of trips to Toronto over the past year whilst wooing her. He can't have it both ways - now he wants the press for PR and a few months ago he was telling them to back off. She is fake with a phony smile remember she is an actress but the public can see right through her. I would be offended to be used in this way - poor Brixton. Harry can't make up for lost time. He should have been doing this over the last few years. Also Kate and William need to buck up their ideas instead of procreating more Royals for us to keep.

The article was updated to clarify that the visit will be about. The comments are mostly negative as they should be.  :cookie:
IMO, I don't give people the benefit of the doubt when they show me who and what they are. Mehgan's track recod speaks for itself regarding her short marriage, her fake lifestyle of being an independent, feminist, hard working out spoken woman. She's a poser and chancer/lying con artist who chages her image and story when a new mark comes along, like she did for Harry.
This visit will occur on Waity's birthday. Maybe she'll actually do some work on that day to overshadow this sham.

As a twice married professional ( 1st marriage lasted 2 years & we dated for 8.5), currently marred for  8 years after dating for 14 months; switched focus of my profession and even changed religion. I've said and done  dumb stuff at 16, 18, 21, 23, 25,26, 30,32,33,36,38,40 & yesterday (probably tomorrow because it's cold as heck over here).I'd hope no one would hold anything in my past against me or believe my good intentions come  with motive
?But as my Grandmother would say, "They talked (spoke ill/ bad  about Jesus Christ. What makes you so special?" 
As the daughter of a Social Worker and niece  of numerous Educators any spotlight on any program highlighting people of color, young girls and coding, art programs for poor underfunded neighborhoods, tutoring after school and etc, bring it on.  Hopefully, more royals will visit these areas with heavy media coverage and put a spotlight on the issues happening right there in the UK.

Wow you have some things in common with MM. I'm a prosecutor for Los Angeles County but I also volunteer teaching kids in ghetto areas and that is very rewarding. And I agree the more anyone does to help underprivileged children the better regardless who is doing it or their motives. So this is a good thing that these two are doing. And I would expect that they will do more because that is what is expected of them and that is why they are getting taxpayers money to appear or at least live the life they live so they can appear it things. It would be far better if they volunteered for no money to do these things. Because I do it for free.

Unfortunately, there is an old saying, which I have found to be very true for many people  -  mud sticks, and murky murkle had had a lot of mud in her life, created by her own self.  It is rare that a leopard changes its spots, and so new into this, with a lot to learn, she is continuing in her old ways, making little or no effort to change her MO so far.  Some people can get mud slung at them and they are innocent, but that is the exception rather than the norm.  And for murky she has no good intentions, all her "charity" work was to gain pr and show off frocks, she was paid to do it.  As for the royals, I very highly doubt they will do what you have outlined above, because purely and simply they won´t want to.  They don´t care about white British people, why should they care about black British people. And no, I am not a racist, far from it, but the rf are a breed apart.  IMO they are not happy at all about a mixed race marrying into the rf, not at all.  Nor one with such a colourful, grubby past and track record.  They would not welcome a white person with the same background, still a mystery to most as to how council cath got it.  Haza is a do gooder, but only as it would now appear, to suit his own agenda when necessary.  A second bill medd, never thought he would turn out like that.

Put these two together and let them get on with it, but personally, speaking for myself, I do not see their very fake and transparent charade working in the long term.  And why is she being foisted on the British public, she is not married in yet, pushing the boundaries a lot aren´t they.

The rf has gone downhill so rapidly it is untrue, they must realise that this charade with haza and murkle is doing them not one bit of good and sending them out to fly the race flag like this will likely not be popular with them.  With all due respect, rightly or wrongly, many in the UK are racist, and this will not go down well with them, with many not even liking her.  Why should the rf highlight racism, and the acceptance of it in the UK, when our own  pensioners get a monthly pittance and can´t afford to put the heating on, dying of hypothermia or living the most miserable existence, having worked and paid into the system all their lives. It really is just not on.

To send haza and murkle out on engagements like this, in my view, is just not on, and a very poor show indeed on the part of the rf.  Why should murky be given top priority, she is not even British (and I am not against US people other, I have many friends in the US).  Surely the British people should come first.  Why should the British taxpayer fund her, she is only out for what she can get.

HM has made a big mistake allowing this marriage to go ahead with what appears to be her approval, this is the rf, not your ordinary every day family.

As a lonnnnng time fundraiser, this event is not designed to promote anything but Meghan Markle.  It is a test to see if she has “a draw” and by draw, it means to take her empathy pulse.  Also another opportunity to sell the new, modern, more aware generation which they, from their yacht or whatever in Monaco and fashion photo spreads are not only blind as bats to the disadvantaged but horrifyingly ingenuous.

^ Was ready to say something along those same lines, but you said it so much more eloquently than I.   Yes, fer shure . . . this is a trial balloon.  The Royal Family Handlers are worried about Meggles' negative factor.  They are trying to figure out if they can handle it, or indeed if it CAN be handled.   I think not, myself, but they will have to figure it out on their own.

What I am curious about is:  Does Harry know now how unpopular Meggles is?  That her "celebrity" does not translate to popularity?   And that her unpopularity is going to bring him down?

That's what I want to know . . . .  :-

The Prince's Trust has worked for several years helping underprivileged people, not just children, in the UK and long before MM appeared on the scene. The plaudits for this kind of work belong to other people, many of whom prefer to be anonymous, and not to MM who will jump on the most appropriate, publicity-seeking bandwagon.  And it's a wagon that could turn into a tumbrel...

I don't buy the dumb Harry act as he's never acted this way before. Yes, he's done dumb things just like any other human being, but being taken in by a shyster like Meghan, I'm not buying it. It's an extreme insult to think that this mixed raced woman who's very comfortable living her life an ambiguous raced woman and only uses being black when it suits her, usually to play victim, that she'd be seen as someone who would care about black British youth. This visit will be a waste of time and as I said, an extreme insult to the volunteers and whoever else they'll meet st the event. People see what she's about, so the staff at KP shouldn't use the people of Brixton to see if she'll pull her weight. How can she when she doesn't care. The dumb thing about this is that Brixton's not like it was years ago as it's a mixed area  although, yes, there's still problems like any other neighborhood that needs programs for the youth to do something positive with their lives. I'm getting tired of seeing good, honest people being dragged in and used to make this bizarre paring acceptable to the people. They're not and the sooner cool heads at the Palace put a stop to this circus the better.

^What sort of action other than detailed descriptions of MM’s attire do you expect?  There is no legitimate reason for her to be there other than to expose her to the public.  Unless she hands over a substantial check, for the org, her presence is pointless.  

She could fully brief herself on this group’s initiatives without tagging along with Harry on this.  It also distracts at this point.  No one is going to even remember the group’s name.  It’s, hopefully, to get a glory shot.

^she wont let Harry speak as she'll take "Centre stage" and talk about how she identifies with "the struggle of her people" as she hangs onto him and tries to look concerned which will be hard to do with her noticed face.

You'd  be surprised about how common divorces are in the Armed Forces. The rate is about 50% :o :o :o :o :o :o. As part of our service we are REQUIRED (no exceptions bignono bignono bignono bignono bignono bignono bignono bignono)
to volunteer at least 150 hours a year.  
My Grandmother used to tell us. " It doesn't matter who the mailman is. It's only important that your mail is delivered. 8) 8) 8) 8) 8)"  The more attention the better, because when it's all said and done it's about the kids.

^true, it's about the kids and the cause, but she'll show up to this engagement with everything on her for sale. She'll make money merchandising like she did during the Notingham one where she had that large bag. She's disgusting and could care less about anything else but what she wants. I hope that she doesn't go because I'd rather hear about what's going on in Brixton even though it's not as bad as it once was, then look at her "ugly" face and hear about her fashion choice and ow much her outfit cost and where you can buy it. The whole thing's bizarre in that she's the antitheses of who Harry would be with if he was serious about his causes which I believe that he is. So I'm not going to write him off just yet, but soon if this continues on much longer though. The charities and causes that his patron of or just lends his support deserve much better than this Harry who's turning into a lying z list celebrity like his so called fiancé.


Title: Re: Harry & Meghan visit ReprezentRadio 9 January

The problem is that somewhere along the line the BRF stopped being seen as public servants, albeit highly privileged ones, and became celebrities.  So, their events, however well meaning, became fashion shows and popularity contests.  At that point, the charity suffers.  They take a back seat to the "show".

Therefore, another problem with Sparkles is that she magnifies the whole showbiz factor because that's precisely who she is, a personality.  She is not a long-bred soldier of the U.K. with a built in awareness of how to best walk that thin line between birth privilege and public service without ending up on the cover of Vogue or enhancing her own image.


Title: Re: Harry & Meghan visit ReprezentRadio 9 January
Post by: windsor2 on January 04, 2018, 03:17:40 am
^very true. I think the press wants a this kind of person in the royal family because it gives them something to write about other than what a lot of the reporters think are mundane repetitious engagements. Mehgan offers them endless clickbait articles because she's so unsuitable and loves the press attention. She's a celebrity who's concern is herself. I think things turned bad when Harry and Wills started falling out of fancy night clubs and were seen acting less than proper where Harry slugged a photographer or Wills was swanning around on Waity's uncles hatch seeming acting like a rich privileged layabout instead of a future king. Their actions got them front page coverage and articles in the trashy gossip magazines. There was a point where they did get back on track, but Harry's Vegas scandal brought him back down to the gutter press. He seemed to have climbed out of the gutter press, but the regular press was getting board because they felt he's much more interesting if he had a girlfriend, so they kept writing him linking him to one actress, singer, model, etc. It's no bad with this click-bait culture where now he's cemented imself back into the gutter press with Mehgan.
He's also giving the press what they think they'd like the royal family to be; vapid, lying celebrities with one tacky situation/drama after the other.Because he keeps on about how the younger generation should put down their phones and do actual work in helping each other, I somehow think that this charade is in aid of that; how this click-bait culture and putting out false narrative like Mehgan does can ruin lives.  Right now, she's no friends and her family's fractured. She uses her mum when she needs to but discarded her to be with the royals for her Christmas photo op. Now she's openly mocked sarcastically by the press and racked over the coals by the public comments in the press and on social media. What can she actually say to the kids that she'll meet in Brixton? She's a user, chanced, manipulator and a strumpet social climber who doesn't care about Harry or anything other than her gratification in material things.

^^ I don't think the Queen, Duke of Edinburgh, Charles or Anne, present themselves as celebrities or think of themselves as such. The trouble is that the media used to (pre Diana) portray the BRF as elitist, cold and out of touch, and therefore the younger royals have been encouraged by media advisers to portray themselves as in touch with the modern man (and woman) on the street. It's a very thin line that modern younger senior royals walk, and the British media sometimes delights in playing up the celebrity angle in their articles and docos.

Post by: YooperModerator on January 04, 2018, 03:44:06 am
Never did I mention HM, the DoE or PA.  Nor  is anyone allowed to bring in comparisons.  Last reminder.

The media cannot take the full hit for this, either.  They only print what they see and although I agree that they run with the celebrity narrative, why shouldn't they when that is exactly how some behave?  There's no sign of understated, reserved behavior in evidence to admire.  Skirts fly up, TV "stars", glamor shots, parties, screaming privacy when it suits them, blah blah.

Why not follow the example set before them?  Are there not enough castles to rest and play in?  Not enough flunkies and servants to satisfy every whim?  It's absurd.

but I disagree

I work in the medical field and an older patient of mine mentioned she never thought she lived to see a black female doctor in combat boots and then we were off to the monarchy. She is over 80 a British monarchist, who hates that since the 1970's The Royal Family handles "these arrangements" (her words ) like beauty pageants or award show campaigns. Unbelievably, after 45 minutes I agreed. She kept pointing at my uniform saying, "service before self". That they knew The Royal Family spent above their means but it wasn't  flaunted. Also, engagements weren't called work.
She had really high hopes for Will & Kate. Harry & Meghan, she sees as open inclusion in the Royal Family (along with HM new Equerry) and that some of that charity work done in Africa will be focused in the UK. (3 days & 5 hours to go )

The Press of always been interested in what the Royal women have worn. Look at articles when the Queen mom was the Duchess of York. But when Diana came on the scene it escalated into celebrity status because of who she is and was. Everybody's interested in her boys and they both married,cwill marry attractive women who are making fashion statements and now we have the internet and Twitter and all those things which makes it multimedia now. that is what happened and how it evolved into British Hollywood that the taxpayers have to foot both by giving the money and allowing them incredible tax breaks so they can invest a personal money and make even more. The only solution is get rid of the monarchy and take back your lands and make them for public use. But I bet the Press will still be talking about Kate and Megan and what they're wearing and where they're living.

Post by: YooperModerator on January 04, 2018, 02:13:08 pm
^Very good points.  And if they are private citizens, the media fascination over what they wear and all of that is completely acceptable.  This event, like so many others, really illustrates how the whole setup doesn't quite work at top efficiency anymore. 

As long as they are on the public purse there has to be a return on investment and that return should come in the form of solid results for charitable efforts.  I see a major decline in that from a fundraiser's prospective.  I don't want my initiative lost in the blur of merchandising.

But, ultimately, this is for the taxpayers to decide.

^exactly. Unfortunately, Waity's such a lightweight and clearly shws she doesn't care, so what are the press going to talk about but her appearance. Mehgan's an insult to all people of colour and her presence wouldn't be considered inclusive in the long run. Actually, people are seeing that she plays both sides of her ethnicity load and clear. In fact, Harry was quite fine highlighting issues that affect black people, so there was no need to have this charade with this poser/fake chick. She'll show up and try to cling to his arm, rub his back and continue to act the desperate fool ready for her closeup an merchandise her attire and accessories. This circus will only deteriorate any good that these visits can do for charities.
IMO, Mehgan's an insult and the soner this charade ends, the better. i don't care at this point if the BRF is using he to play the race card as she did to them, I just want her gone as she's devaluing the monarchy, bringing down Harry and showing young women that they can use people and still get "the prize." She's a bad role model and person, IMO, that can only be used as an example of how not to waste your life to the young people Harry says he wants to help.

^exactly. Since she outed the "romance" she's done nothing but paid pap stoles and stalking Harry. She's shown what she's about and that's self promotion at any cost. She cares nothing for Harry only his position and the press that being ith him gives her. Her idea of helping is to have her picture taken and getting herself in the press. If she cared about anyone else but herself, she'd not have given up her dogs and dropped people after they became useless to her. She also has sex scandal written all over her with the DM basically saying she's a Soho House girl/comfort girl, and people say that there's nudes of her on google. She's not someone to gie given the benefit of the doubt and as i said prior, not someone who Harry should be associated with when he claims to want to help young peole. She's a nasty strumpet who thinks clinging onto Harry like a lone will absolve her of her nasty ways. Again, her mere presence is an insult and the sooner this farce comes to an end the better.

It’s all nonsense.  She’s never been this active humanitarian they keep trying to sell.  She’s never been an activist for the black community.  It’s all hogwash.

The problem is that if she gets in line and follows the hierarchy of the BRF, she will be perceived as being controlled and held back and the BRF will be meanies.  This is why this will never work.

This chick will not tow the line. She will eventually tire of everyone else's agenda and start her own. Then you will see exactly how "in love" they are and how strong their bond is. She will not like being second to Kate and she already is that. Even in mags, they have Kate and her not just her. Kate had much more mag covers when she when Kate was engaged and still does. Kate is much prettier and tall and lanky wearing clothes much better. She will not like how things unfold that way. Then she will start doing what gets her attention. That is not towing the line. At least I think this is true of her. Harry is along for the ride.

As a Brit, I'd say Harry step down and move to the States if this farce is to go to marriage. IMO, she's shown exactly what she's going to do post marriage, so why have her marry in? There's no way Harry can go on about helping those less fortunate when he's engaged to a fame strumpet who only plays at being a humanitarian. The longer this farce goes on the tackier Harry and the royal family look. Modernizing the monarchy shouldn't involve marrying an actress from America and allowing her to do as she pleases like merchandising whenever she's seen in public. This is low level WAG reality show level behavior. Harry and at times Wills were doing things a bit different/modern if you will when they took on the mental illness campaign. Maybe Harry's actually dealing with it in Meghan's case as she seems to have narc disorder. i hope Harry turns up by himself like he did at the BBC radio interview and when asked about where Meghan is, he'll say out shopping or getting a facial or something like that.  :tehe:  I'd rather hear and read about what's going on in Brixton than about her hogging up the event.

Meghan cannot do as she pleases as a royal. Harry is the second son of the heir to the throne, even if he wanted a wedding in the US, it would not be allowed. I can't imagine the royals jetting over to the US to a large venue for one thing. And security would be a nightmare and $$$ for taxpayers. Certainly Harry's family would be present at his wedding there is no reason to "shun" him since the Queen approved the marriage.

Post by: lesken on January 05, 2018, 07:36:40 pm
You are right, but that doesn't mean some wierd thing will happen and they elope before the wedding. I did that and had a wedding as well but I was secretly married. And my nephew just did that cos he had a destination wedding in Mexico and didn't follow their rules so he had to marry before his big ceremony. Didn't stop either of us doing that. I just threw that out because of that petition I read about on one of the threads.


Title: Re: Harry & Meghan visit ReprezentRadio 9 January
Post by: sandy on January 05, 2018, 07:49:37 pm
I doubt Harry would get permission to do this unless they go to an island destination and have another ceremony after the one in the UK. A quiet ceremony but still, I don't think that option would be allowed for Harry. Of course I don't know if royals get to renew their vows. Even the Queen didn't and she and Philip were married for 70 years.

^at first I'd preferred if she didn't go but now I really want her to go and make a fool of herself with her very fake veneer. Harry they see as a genuine chap, but her, they'll see her a the fake she is. Lets hope Harry has a way to be a good distance away so she'll not hang onto him like a crazy clingy woman like she has when ever she's seen with him. I also hope that she'll wear something ultra expensive as she'll be merchandising her attire. My biggest hope is that the press runs an article from something dumb she's said that'll be derogatory to black people, poor people, gentrification,  anything that'll further tick off the people in Brixton. I'm looking forward to the comments this visit will get.

I did some research and from November 2010 until April 2011 we know Kate accompanied William a couple of times e.g. the Lifeboat naming ceremony but the CC didn't list her but ... the Future Engagements for Harry has him going to be accompanied by Meghan for this event. Whether she will make it into the actual CC is still to be seen but listed in the FE would suggest that she is going to be in the CC months before the wedding.

This looks like another change in the normal fiancee treatment by having her on official duties before the wedding rather than having to wait until after, even if the fiancee was there.

HM is really changing the protocols now it seems - modernising the monarchy as per the wishes and desires of her grandsons. Maybe we will even see no title for Harry but another change and Meghan becoming Princess Meghan rather than Princess Henry along with a peerage.

I suppose it is not a bad move for the BRF to put MM there given she's engaged and part black. If they hadn't would people there have complained. I am not sure. I am sure that MM is aware of the bad press so she will be on very good behavior and dress appropriately for this. If she doesn't, then she is a real fool and Harry a worse one.

Any, and I don’t care where it is, disadvantaged or struggling minority community will sniff out a pr-driven visit.  The question will always be, “What difference does this really make to us?”.  It’s a really tough effort for an off the charts privileged group like the BRF to sell genuinely. 

It’ll be more like the carnival comes for a few hours.  Long-term change doesn’t come via a group who have no political power.  It usually serves to make the visitor look better rather than real boots on the ground solution makers.

To me, the BRF shouldn’t do this.  It’s an awkward and borderline insulting fit.

For several years now one of the key areas in Harry's charity work (both in and out of the Royal Foundation) has concentrated on vulnerable young people from disadvantaged areas in Great Britain, through, sport, troubled youth,  mentoring programmes and giving young people skill sets for their future.

Harry has been seen in the past visiting boxing areas, sports fields, job training sites and other arenas involving youth.  His visits bring publicity to some forgotten areas. These programmes are for both black and white youths and any other ethnicity. Reprezent Radio is a radio station run by young people for (mainly) the youth in the area. As such it fits perfectly into the demographic Harry has been involved with for a long time.


Title: Re: Harry & Meghan visit ReprezentRadio 9 January
Post by: YooperModerator on January 09, 2018, 08:53:14 am
^Awareness is always a good thing.  Always.  For the people living in these areas and the government as a whole, however, there is no lack of awareness.  That is saturated to flood stage levels now. 

What is required at this point is results and for someone in a very high tax bracket, a quasi-celebrity, to visit or talk to people who live in these communities always comes off as a pr stunt.  I guarantee that all that will be showcased here is what MM wears or how they look.  That's always the case but even more so now that they've taken their, let's face it, token minority to a minority group.  They don't want to hear how tough either of them have had it because it's not true.  Where's the relatability factor?  It's non-existent.

What measurable results can the BRF point to and claim that have really altered the living conditions for these communities?  The better way to go is for a real use of any monarchy Foundation or Trust to provide monies for after-school programs and youth activities that last, higher ed scholarships, etc.  Things that are tangible and serve the people directly.  Preachy, "we care for 30 minutes" visits don't really cut it.

That's if their commitment is to the long term benefits rather than the short term image enhancement which this event, like so many others, seems to be.

Post by: Rosella on January 09, 2018, 10:38:09 am
When Harry served in the Army he didn't just serve with the elite but mixed with ordinary soldiers as well. I don't think any of the people who have met him have complained about his relatibility factor. Similarly, whatever you think about MM she wasn't born into an immensely wealthy family. She has a mother who is a social worker and Meghan participated through her school in helping out at soup kitchens when young.

No member of the Royal family just visits places connected with the charities they are patrons of and support for half an hour and then walks away from it. They are all involved in publicising their causes, and raising funds, not just in the particular locales involved but nationally, and sometimes internationally. They help with fundraising events (such as William and Harry's polo events which have raised millions) holding dinners which wealthy donors attend etc.

The Royal Foundation of the Cambridges and Prince Harry is an umbrella organisation that helps with donations for the charities under their banner specifically so that these organisation can organise things like work training and after school projects and help with scholarships and mentoring programmes.

I'm not posting the report on last year's big grant given by the Foundation which was to do with Heads Together, but the year before,  2016 when grants were given out for various programmes. The military (not just Invictus, but Service widows and families)  are helped, conservation and youth are the three focus areas of the Foundation with mental health as well.

Harry is the second son. I don't think the Queen will remove titles he was born with.  I think they will be HRH Prince Henry and HRH Princess Henry. They decidedly should have the titles.  He was born an HRH Prince and he will stay one. It is not like a Peter Phillips or Zara Phillips Scenario. I also think Harry will get a Dukedom. I don't think HM will change protocol that way. It would be in effect a demotion if he gets no title. Even Edward her youngest got a title. And Meghan should get all the titles and styles of her future husband.

Modernizing the monarchy and mentions in the CC: the Brits are certainly the most oldfashioned of all of them (in Europe) and modernization is needed, but they have much bigger and more pressing issues than mentions in the CC before one becomes an official member of the family. I am against that, and besides, at this point all the "changes" seem more like catering and pandering to a certain someone (and avoidning a scandal and name-throwing at the Winds), than changes in favour of moderinzation.

But don’t get your hopes up about #harryandmeghan being on air on @ReprezentRadio today. There are no plans for that, apparently. Asked what might appeal to #Meghan today, I was told: ‘By coincidence 60 per cent of our intake are women. They are strong and confident’

Yes, she did the whole Red Carpet display and I saw her blow a kiss, then holding her lips so so so “overcome!” and the hand flap/luv u wave adored by 6-year olds everywhere.  And her hair!  Come on.  How much did this nonsense cost??  Just cringey.  Ewwww.

IMO, it looks like a small crowd and I read that they were cheering for Harry. I also read that before Christmas, Harry and her asked to visit the radio station. I’ve to laugh at this tacky woman acting like she’s indeed on the red carpet and acknowledging the crowd and reporters as it seemed she payed more attention to them than Harry or the lady who might be explaining what the radio station’s about. A confident woman doesn’t change her identity whenever it suits her or displays clingy behavior like she does with Harry. WTF is she doing faking a British accent? Why is she encouraged to act like a celebrity and Harry’s her co-star/afterthought? Since this visit is to hear about the statuon’s program for people under 25 years old, I know that they’re cought up in celebrity culture so her idiotic behavior could be the talking point to get them going on social media and talk about her but also mention the radio station. In an odd way, the station might just get the attention that it deserves. I just can’t see this being the course of the engagement and post wedding because this isn’t a royal couple, more like a z list actress who finally has fans and press attention and is loving it as she clings on to her meal ticket, Harry, and makes sure he doesn’t do a runner.
So as Harry continues to carry on this idiotic charade with this fame strumpet, the Cambridge’s are being painted as traditional British family with dignity, duty and grace. It’s a total joke to be sure because they’re not and what ticks me off is that they wasted so many years being and doing nothing that now extreme expensive measures have to be taken like this side show and Harry’s reputation and somewhat respect is in tatters as the Cambridge’s are propped up on this carnage and tried to be made as decent royal workers with the leadership of Catherine Quinn. Too late. The DM comments are being moderated so you know most of the comments are bad and see this woman as the fake person she is. It’s sickening to hear that women say that because she’s mixed raced like her daughter, she’s a role model.

It struck me that here is H in another radio station. I think he wants to do radio and T.V. next as the interviewer or producer of some sort. Clearly he likes it. But will he be allowed and successful as he will be under great criticism because he is a royal stepping into entertainment. I don't believe he can think of his feet mainly because of his I.Q. Oh well, just a thought as to why he picked a radio station and he is being encouraged by MM who I know does not want to leave entertainment. Grace Kelly regretted it.

Just saw a short report on TV, and to be fair the blowing a kiss thing didn't look like such one from a different angle.

What was annoying though is that immediately after getting out of the car she grabbed for H's hand, which 5 seconds later he had to drop to greet one of the radio people, then she immediately went for his hand again, lasting some 20 seconds this time, which he had to drop again to greet people.
I'm sorry, but that's highly uprofessional. She's a grown up and behaves like a needy and shy teenager.

The reporter did say though that she has confidence in spades and acts much more confidently than Kate did during engagement, so I guess reporters aren't buying the "I'm so shy and humble/ modest" bs act.

Good grief, the public clinging has got to stop.  This is a professional?  No.

^She has no idea how to present herself in this realm.  It's all too new and exciting and all about her.  Give it time.

^^Could be, re kiss blowinggate, but what I saw was her hand to her lips then a wave to her fans.  It wasn't the full court palm blow but where I come from, that's blowing a kiss.  I think she realized what she was doing and checked herself from actually taking a bow.  J/k.  But, somebody's talked to her but not nearly enough because she stopped herself a couple of times and then decided on "overwhelmed from the lovvvve".  The coy baloney is just that.

This is paid for by the taxpayers and is supposed to represent Harry and, by extension, the Queen.  This is not produced and directed to be The Sparkles Show. She's not royalty yet.  If so, she isn't right for the part.  Not even close.

The continual grabbing his hand at events is telling as I never see anyone do that including first ladies of the US, entertainment couples, etc. So she is insecure in her position at this point and needs constant reassurance, or this is one of her control methods for keeping Harry, needy, "don't leave me" ego stroking for him as she feigns dependency now. The one thing she is not is a dependent type. In one of her Valentine Day blogs (which by the way my niece's friend actually writes) she advocates spending Valentine's Day alone buying yourself dinner and chocolates if you don't have a boyfriend, husband, etc. And you should hug yourself. Okay so she doesn't write it but directs it. She is not a cling by the man's hand type of woman or at least has not advocated that to her followers. So she is full of baloney or now knows nothing is sure until she is pronounce wife. She has to work it.

She’s quite dumb and shows she knows and respects nothing of Harry’s position or that of the royal family. Harry must be setting her up for the fall as there’s no other logical explanation as to why she’s being allowed to act like a z list celebrity and make a fool of herself.

Ecstatic wellwisher is overcome with emotion as she breaks down crying and wails 'Oh my God, I love you!' on Meghan and Harry's Brixton royal visit
Quote
Foster carer Sharley Watson, 55, waited out in the cold for hours to catch a glimpse of the couple and said she was excited to welcome them to Brixton.

She said: 'It's good to see Meghan in Brixton, a black community - it's the first time we've had a royal visit here.

'Hopefully she will want to help areas like this. I hope she liked it - I think she would like it even better at night .. she could try out the nightlife.'

American students Jennifer Martinez, 20, and Millicent Sasu, 19, from Baltimore, US, were also in the crowd.

Jennifer said: 'She's black, she's white, she's an actress, she's American .. she brings a bit of everything and has so many different qualities and brings such a lot to the table.'
Station manager Adrian Newman told him that they had a question for him to which Harry pointed at Meghan and swiftly replied: 'She answers the questions!'

'Yes talking of gender equality!' Meghan quickly snapped back, with a smile on her face.

Meghan and Harry smiled broadly as people cheered and shouted - and in response to Harry's gesticulating to the crowds and comment 'this is so loud, you have to', Meghan turned and blew a kiss, which had everyone screaming even louder.

She’s a nasty divisive figure who’s shown over and over she’ll use race to play the victim to get what she wants. This event today will/has backfired on her and I’d be shocked if this isn’t Harry’s plan as I believed she’s played the race card on him in the past.

^The entire look, from head to toe, was coordinated:

Engagement/Nottingham/Christmas - Hair extensions from here to kingdom come; This appearance - No extensions, messy/everyday girl bun

Engagement/Nottingham/Christmas - Every article of clothing was new & just about every piece was hovering at the $1K+ mark; This appearance - A coat she already owned and everything else she wore combined costs less than the purse she wore on Christmas

Engagement/Nottingham/Christmas - Makeup that was clearly darker than the rest of her body to highlight the fact that she's got a little bit of melanin; This appearance - Makeup is kept to a minimum because she knows black women are more likely to call her out for trying to pull that card.

Engagement/Nottingham/Christmas - Merching the handbags that cost more than some people bring home every two weeks; This appearance - No purse at all

Engagement/Nottingham/Christmas - Earrings that cost more than a down payment on a decent starter house; This appearance - Minimal jewelry that I wouldn't be surprised if she already owned and was gifted for pre-Harry merch expeditions.

I did some research and from November 2010 until April 2011 we know Kate accompanied William a couple of times e.g. the Lifeboat naming ceremony but the CC didn't list her but ... the Future Engagements for Harry has him going to be accompanied by Meghan for this event. Whether she will make it into the actual CC is still to be seen but listed in the FE would suggest that she is going to be in the CC months before the wedding.

This looks like another change in the normal fiancee treatment by having her on official duties before the wedding rather than having to wait until after, even if the fiancee was there.

HM is really changing the protocols now it seems - modernising the monarchy as per the wishes and desires of her grandsons. Maybe we will even see no title for Harry but another change and Meghan becoming Princess Meghan rather than Princess Henry along with a peerage.

Harry is the second son. I don't think the Queen will remove titles he was born with.  I think they will be HRH Prince Henry and HRH Princess Henry. They decidedly should have the titles.  He was born an HRH Prince and he will stay one. It is not like a Peter Phillips or Zara Phillips Scenario. I also think Harry will get a Dukedom. I don't think HM will change protocol that way. It would be in effect a demotion if he gets no title. Even Edward her youngest got a title. And Meghan should get all the titles and styles of her future husband.

I don't believe I suggested Harry would lose the styles he was born with - HRH Prince Henry of Wales and eventually HRH The Prince Henry. As Charles reportedly wants a smaller royal family and seems to be focusing on removing the status of the York girls he would be hypocritical to then insist on Harry having what he wants to take away from the York girls. They therefore have to start the 'smaller family' somewhere - where - wait until Charles is King and then have in issue LPs to change things - or to start with Harry and simply not give him something ... i.e. not give him a peerage title but remain simply Prince Henry of Wales so Meghan would be Princess Henry. My suggestion for that is that the change in protocol would be that she is officially Princess Meghan - that was the suggestion not that Harry would be stripped of being a Prince. I am hopeful that the Queen won't issue LPs giving HRH to Harry's children and that he will follow Edward's lead and have them without HRH as in time they will be in the position of the York girls and even worse as William will have three children at least so further from the throne from birth onwards and never as close as Beatrice was - like Harry will never be as close to the throne as Andrew was for the first 22 years of his life.

Personally I would love to see the BRF, moving forwards, limit HRH to the spouse of monarch (regardless of gender), heir apparent, spouse of heir apparent, heir apparent's heir apparent and spouse (Philip, Charles, Camilla, William and Kate) and the other children of the monarch Lord/Lady and grandchildren from these children remain Ms/Mr. It won't happen but it would make the family smaller with a maximum of 6 active members at any time rather than the bloated family now with 19 HRHs and two more to be added this year with Kate's third baby and Meghan.

Yes they’ll be a race “war” because this chick’s the last person to get to help black youth. She spends her whole time being racially ambiguous except when she uses her black parent to push the race card to play victim. She’s alterered her appearance over the years to play up her white side, so how can any black person look to her and say she’s an inspiration. Why in God’s name did that woman thank her for all she’s done. She’s fake, self-serving and vapid.  :bored:  Harry’s part of the Heads Together and now he can go and help the black youth because to some, the bit of black in Meghan, his fiancée, gives him the right to now assist the young black youth with legitimacy although Harry’s been doing that for years, way before she came on the scene.

I think if they are born with the styles they should keep them. This should apply to future generations, perhaps George's future children. Since Harry already is an HRH and a Prince he should keep the HRH. It would create some weirdness in the Cambridge family if only the eldest had a title. The human element should be considered. ALl of them should not have a title if they are seniors or all of them shouldn't. Meghan and Harry should have the HRH and Harry should not be demoted.And neither should others who were born Prince or Princess. IMO. I do think that it would give incentive for H and M to pull their weight if they are not "demoted." And Charles has a vision of a scaled down monarchy and he needs enough so a fewer number of people would have to pull their weight.

Post by: HRHOlya on January 10, 2018, 12:59:35 am
^ Definitely for future generations, wouldn't make sense to demote people now (& as you say those born with it), also because H is very much a part of C's "slimmed down monarchy".
Also wouldn't make sense to keep for example the "HRH" from Cambs3, but if Harry has one cell in his brain, he'll opt out of having the "HRHs" given to his children, for reasons pointed out before by meememe.

I get the point of not wanting to separate the children, but others (as mentioned) are doing it and it seems to be fine, it also preps the children better imo for the future (and a lack of HRH is a better incentive for them to carve out their own future and not hang on to past glory, eg Carl P Bernadotte in Sweden and famously Margaret Windsor who couldn't handle not having an HRH, titles and grandeur).
I'd also make a point of raising the children as children and not little kings or queens (no bowing to a toddler or teenager and addressing them as "sir" or "madam")! I think that way you raise better people: they are not little special somethings to whom adults bow and scrape, but little gents and ladies like all other children who have to learn manners and respect.

^That is crazy.  I don't know that wearing a bunch of rings means anything but, for me, a thumb ring is tacky.  Just personal taste. 

Also, if it was your second time in public, representing your country and the Queen and your husband-to-be, and you knew that your picture would be all over the place, wouldn't you take extra care to look polished, professional and not camera hungry?

It doesn't make sense.  I know this is all about knocking down walls and shaking things up, but you can look well groomed doing it.  In fact, you have a better chance of success that way. 

It's the trying-too-hard factor again maybe.  "See how hip and trendy I am?"  :bored:

A thumb ring is cute on a 15-year-old girl.   Meggles is 36.  Thinking that the placement of rings gives her power is just what I would expect of her, however. 

It's funny that this kind of hippy/sloppy dressing was so condemned in one of Harry's previous girlfriends -- who was in her early 20s.   But now it is celebrated in this grown woman.

The best thing about this disastrous visit is that the community of black people who live in the area didn’t waste their time showing up so out goes her excuse that she could do something for the black people in Britain as the idiot press have reported. She doesn’t identify with her black side and people very much see that.

The weird thing about her is she sloppy in some things and then overdressed and others. So I don't understand why she just can't be appropriate. Oh I know she's an idiot or something like that but really. Why is nobody advising her correctly and forcing her to be correct considering the position she's in.  And the thing I *despise* about this is you know some people are going well she's an American she can't helping tacky.

‘It’s a stunt’ Locals OUTRAGED by Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s first 2018 royal visit
Quote
Mike Eweje, from a local store, said: “It’s a stunt for the royal family. Did Will come here with his missus?

“I don’t think so. It’s like ‘Look at us, we’ve got a black person with us now.”
Mr Eweje believes the royal couple don't care about people living in Brixton.

He added: “People don’t care about the Royal Wedding because they don’t care about people around here.”

Another shop owner, Anita Thorpe, slammed the choice of destination as a “cliche”.

‘She's hardly Serena Williams’ Prince Harry and Meghan Markle blasted ahead of visit today
https://www.lipstickalley.com/threads/‘shes-hardly-serena-williams’-prince-harry-and-meghan-markle-blasted-ahead-of-visit-today.1386806/page-2

IMO, because the local community didn’t bother to come out to see them and especially the black people that she figured would go to see her didn’t, it was a waste of a visit. The radio station might’ve gotten a bit more attention, but overall, with such a small crowd and her acting rude and to her “fans” like a Hollywood starlet, it was a massive fail.
The regular press is making up such lies calling it mania and attended by large crowds being in a frenzy.
It’s hard to see this crap continue to go on and not have the thought that Harry’s ruined himself now as he’s attached to this fake uncaring rude narc.

Richard Palmer reporting on his Tweet page yesterday that Harry and Meghan stayed for 25 minutes more than was scheduled in the 45 minute visit.

https://mobile.twitter.com/RoyalReporter/status/950762211508662272

Unlike Notttingham, this was not scheduled as a walkabout. I watched it on Sky from start to finish and not even the Royal reporters there could give any arrival times for Harry and Meghan due to security. Rihanna Mills, the Sky news correspondent spoke several times about the security lockdown. Viewers were kept waiting ages for the arrival and for ages after the couple went inside.

Two locals that were quoted in the Fail as being dismissive about royals in that article does not make for a wall of hatred for this couple by the local Brixton community.

'It was like meeting a friend... and she smelled of roses!' Young DJs reveal what it was like to meet Meghan Markle at a Brixton radio station - and say the bride-to-be is 'regal already'
http://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/article-5253639/DJs-say-Meghan-Markle-smelled-like-roses-regal.html
This is somewhat sad because they’re 2 young women of colour who want to look like Meghan who’s done plastic surgery and other things to play down her black side. Then there’s the issue of colourism within the black culture; that it’s better to be light skinned than to be dark as the opportunities are greater for you and you can pass as ambiguous to further push yourself ahead, but use the race card and take issues that the darker skinned black people had to endure and make them your own like Meghan has done IMO. I guess they were told to play up the visit to give the station more press attention. I hope that their programs do get funding and whatever they need because it’s helping young people see a viable future for themselves and giving them skills.
^that’s pretty bad to say that the arrival times weren’t given due to security concerns. IMO, that’s counter intuitive to the whole purpose of the visit. It’s just saying that the area’s still gritty, grimy and dangerous that extra security measures needed to be taken.

^Thats very enterprising of that DJ.  Worth a shot but wouldn't hold my breath, buddy.

It was a pr stunt and they know it.  There's no other phrase for it because I doubt very much that we will ever hear of Brixton again.  It's kind of insulting on so many levels to send her right away to a black community.  Too obvious.  And Harry looked kind of out of place, uncertain and, to me, unsure of himself.  Oh well.

Personally i find her gorgeous and extremelly elegant.Love all her looks so far!Shes also very interesting and i cant wait to see her as a royal.If she keeps on working hard, bring attention to important causes and making good to people, dressing apropriatedlly, not causing any scandal, to me thats great already.So far thats what shes been doing and i cant complain about anything at all.Maybe theres too much exposition but it would be in any way.And im glag shes doing things diferentlly from protocols and instead of focusing on silly things about wedding only, shes also out there working on her image, trying to build this hard working royal image.If this is for real and genuine time will show for sure so i wouldnt worry much about it now anyway.


As for her using the "race card" as some keeps saying, well shes half black and shes marrying a royal and unfortunatelly racism is real!!It does exists and only those who suffered it knows how horrible it is.I dont think people realize how awfull and serious such issue is unless they had felt in theyre own skin how it is.So i dont think shes using it to benefit herself and her image or in vain.Racism is real and shes actually suffering a lot of it.Just check the comments about her and her familly to see!!!!If she uses it in vain it will show and it will have consequences dont worry but so far i dont think thats the case at all.If theres someone using the race thing in theyre favour is the RF not MM.

Latelly it becoming a global issue that has been very discussed especially coz of the whole imigrant crises and many people coming out to show theyre true colors about the issue the cases of racism had raised absurdlly.Just reading the DM out of 50 articles 40 are about racism!One of the news talks about a politician wife making horrible offenses agaisnt meghan coz shes black.So yeah it is very important for her as a black person,as a human and as a future royal to talk about such issues and get envolved with causes that promote good things for everyone!

I dont really think people realize how such a problem racism is and how important it is at such times for people to have role models like this.It might not mean much for those who are white or whathever but as it was shown on the event, and why not say since this engagement was announced, it matters a LOT to those who are black to FINALLY  have a royal they can related to.For the first time EVER black women and girls all over the wolrd will finally have the chance to see a REAL black princess getting married to a prince!Thats a lot for these people honestlly and not something to be made less.

Post by: Ariel on January 14, 2018, 07:40:03 am
camila, I disagree with you on so many points that I'll list them all.

The firm is not a corporation and doesn't need to or have to have minority representation. They are a real family. If a minority representation was to be the criteria of who Harry falls for then indian descent would have been a better representation, not black descent. The world does not revolve around the slavery of african-americans in US. The world does not owe african-americans pity, tiaras or crowns for this purely american issue.

Europe has darker skinned Europeans and there is no racism towards them. We had arabs in Spain and Portugal, mongols in Central Europe, turks in Eastern Europe. The only left white skinned european nations are the scandinavians and the russians. I'm not including UK here because it has been generously inclusive of and welcoming of people from commonwealth countries. The scandinavian countries also have a very generous and inclusive policies towards foreigners of all kinds of backgrounds and I know that a lot of people love it there despite the climate.

The migrant issues are issues NOT of race but of intolerance and nonacceptance of someone coming into your house and demanding that you follow their religious rules. I don't know where you live camila, but let me tell you - there are no religiously styled jews in Europe, there are no indians walking in sarong in Europe (except tourists from India). This is what Europe is all about. Merkel welcomed the migrants but she's welcoming workforce not whiners. Whining and trying to achieve something or to get ahead in life with using the race card is a faux pas in Europe.

That said - Meghan doesn't have to do her whining about her race a world's problem. Her issues are her issues and no one wants them, the world does not want her issues dumped on them. In Europe there is no racism. Prejudice - yes, but not racism and these two should not be used interchangeably.

Meghan is not representative of black people anywhere in the world. I voted for a black president because of his qualifications for the job, not because of his skin color. It is very dangerous to think that just because someone has the right skin color they are all set for representing certain types of issues.  That's pretty much the definition of racism, I think.

I also have to disappoint BUT there are already black monarchs. They are in Africa. Why didn't Meghan try to modernize them with her half-white heritage, you know, the one she associates with all of the time, except for when it suits her. I'd like to see your point of you on that but for me - her skin color is white, she associates with only white people, she's finding it very convenient that her mom is half black and thinks that she'll go all "look at me, my mom is half-black and therefore has suffered, now the whole world owes Me-me-me". She's not modernizing anything. Harry points to her where the rented crowd is every time. The black woman who loves her - excuse me, but why does she love her exactly. The black women I know think that Meghan is yet another Omarosa and to me she most definitely is. Besides - let's not forget, we know so far her heritage from her mother's side until great-grandmother. Each one of there women had married a white guy (opportunist much). Therefore, Meghan's mom is technically 1/4th black if we assume that her grand-mother was 100% african-american. That will mean that Meghan is 1/8th black. Only 1/8th. That's 12.5%. If she takes DNA test she'll probably show much less of the heritage that she conveniently parades for sympathy and for personal gain.

And lastly - I am far from invalidating that lots of people have suffered prejudices in Europe and racism in US. To me the way forward from prejudices is with having our kids at the same playground. This is massively done in Europe and the people of tomorrow will be even more accepting and inclusive. The past cannot be deleted or changed. It's very wrong to think that by whining and demanding repatriations a wrong can be turned into a right. To me Meghan represents everything that is wrong about such issues as prejudice and racism.

Thanx for ure answer Ariel.Its always nice to have this exchance of opinions.In the end thats what forums are for anyway.Here on this forum people tend to ignore u if u have a diferent opinion so its very nice of u to answer and give ure opinion.I respect ure opinions and ill try to explain my opinions as well and why i think the way i do.Its a long post and i apologise but i though it would be nice to answer anyway  :thankyou:

The firm is not a corporation and doesn't need to or have to have minority representation. They are a real family.


In my opinion they do as they live of public opinion and as the wolrd changes so should the royals.The royals lives of good PR it wouldnt do them any bad to actually have someone from a minority among them.

Obviouslly Harry havent chose this women based on this, at least i hope not, but clearlly he marrying a half black person has a weight and a representation of the entire RF. The wolrd is changing and Britain among many other nations is multicultural.So yeah its nice to have a new member who represents some minority.And  i bet that all minoritys would feel represented by someone who is diferent and brings attention to them as well as topics that envolves them and are not usually discussed since these people are not part or included among the royals or aristos.

Its like Disney princess.Every girl should have a princess to look up to.If u know what i mean.Today they have but it wasnt always this way.Things are changing coz the world is changing.So are the royals!"Oh look theres a black women in the royal familly"  it may sound ridiculous as some still believe racism dont exist but reality is diferent and in the real world yeah thats something.Obama wasnt just a president he was a BLACK president he may not had been to u but he was for millions of black americans.Just like trump is for millions of white americans.To me is bs to elect a president for his colour or like a princess for her colour.Or chose a politician for its genre but it does happens and it does represents people.It does has a weight and thats what im saying.He wasnt elected coz of his color but he had a big weight because of his colour.

Trumps wife is from country in europe and there shes worshipped coz shes the only famous foreigner of such country i guess.Shes married to an american president.So yeah it does makes a diference.If harry married an indian women it would have a weight for all indians.If she was from russia for all russians.If she was south american for all latinos, asian for all asians.It does matters for these minoritys and it is of importance and interest of the RF to keep up with such matters so yeah it does matters!!!It does makes a diference!

Europe has darker skinned Europeans and there is no racism towards them.


Totally disagree.Only someone who had never suffered racism or saw it happenning to someone else can say this.It happens everyday all the time. A LOT!!!!! There are thousands of interviews with people who suffered it.Thousands of videos that shows people suffering racism everywhere in public places actually.Just look for it u may be surprised and chocked with how much of this is real and happens and how awfull it is.

I also believed racism didnt existed and people who were constantlly talking about this were talking bs being boring.Until the day i suffered it myself and believe me it was real and one of the most traumatizing things ive ever been through.One of the saddest days of my life.Theres no words to descrive the feeling of being treated as *poo* because ure not white or dont look like ay other local from a country.Coz racism can happen anywhere with anyone.Black, white, native, indian, arab...U can suffer racism for being white too depending on where u are.Racism is bad for everyone under any circunstance.

In Europe people tend to be more reserved and dont talk much about such things or how they feel.There are also lots of rules and laws that stops people to talk about such things or express such opinions.Dont mean that it doesnt exist and people dont feel it.With this whole crises were living with mass imigration and politicians being openlly racists people are becoming more and more intolerant and feeling more and more confortable to put such racists opinions out.

Even in royal circles that are a lot of racism.Recentlly princess Michael of Kent used a racist brooche to kinda of show how unsatisfied she was with having a black person on th RF.Just so u see it does exists and it happens everywhere all the time and many diferent ways.Now imagine how it was for M to watch all this.She may not even had noticed at first but seeing the news thats so mean and humiliating honestlly.Thats why i keep sayin deslike the women but dont invalidate acts of racism as nothing simply coz u dont like her.

The migrant issues are issues NOT of race but of intolerance

I agree and disagee.I do believe is both.Again ure being very naive to believe that this minoritys dont suffer racism.They do.For everything especially for not being white.I travelled to europe a couple of times and once with my friend ( white, red haired and blue eyed) we backpacking through some countries and all the time people asked me if i was from india or arab and i always got stuck in airports asnwering questions and etc coz of my SKIN COLOR while my friend who was from the same country as me and with the same social, economical condition, visa, documents,  never went through any this.Thats when i started to learn what racism is coz yeah my dear thats pure racism and it happens everyday everywhere!!!!

I dont think there would be any problems about imigration if these imigrants were all white and blonde from austria,australia,norway or sweden for example even if the same issues were happenning.Europe has been a mess for a decade now receiving millions of white imigrants especially from poor european countries in the east as well as broken economies like portugal and greece for example.These peopleare econmical imigrants and are by millions in europe but imigration only turned out to be a problem when certain imigrants from specific poor non white countries started to imigrate.So to me it does has to deal with race more than with anything else.

Not saying there are no other reasons.Religion especially is a big issue regarding a few stuff but mostlly its based on race.
In some cases theres the reverse racism as i said before.These people dont really want to mix with the locals and this end up creating a bad vibe among them.I know coz i lived in germany for sometime and i always though they were racists against the arabs, turkish but living there i saw it was the opposite.german are the nicest and fairest people these groups/comunitys tend to recluse themselves and end up creating an unnecessary distance and feeling between them.Still dont mean the prejudice and racism dont happen at such places.

Whining and trying to achieve something or to get ahead in life with using the race card is a faux pas in Europe.


Now i totally disagree.Dont confuse lazy people trying to get advantages with people suffering racism!
U wont know what racism is like until u feel it in ure own skin.I though it didnt existed until i was once expelled from a restaurant in russia coz im not white.At first i didnt understood what was going on but my friend (asian) who probbally had been through this many times told me "lets go, lets go they wont serve us" while the ladies on the counter laughed histerically and waiters were showing us the exit door.Im not whining about it or trying to play the victim.It happened it was real and it really hurted.Even writing this bring tears to my eyes.It changed me forever such heavy and awfull that situation was.I would never treat a human being like this no matter what.To think this is nothing compared to what my friend and so many other people across the wolrd has passed due to racism just for people to say its whinning and a faux pas is pure ignorance or just cruelty.

Meghan doesn't have to do her whining about her race a world's problem. Her issues are her issues and no one wants them, the world does not want her issues dumped on them. In Europe there is no racism. Prejudice - yes, but not racism and these two should not be used interchangeably.

Again ure being naive if u think racism dont exist and why shouldnt she bring her issues to her life and her role?Doesnt many royals use important causes to them related to theyre personal issues to do royal duties?The princes and theyre relation with Africa coz of theyre mother, Harry with dislexia?Eugenie with that healthy issue she had.Why should she deny her race and want to get envolved with causes about this if shes a black person herself and had probbally faced situations that envolves racism???I say more power for her to use something thats important to her and that probbally had affected her life and try to use her position as a public person to chance something in the wolrd for a few or many people.Coz u may not feel represented by her but many will!

Meghan is not representative of black people anywhere in the world. I voted for a black president because of his qualifications for the job, not because of his skin color. It is very dangerous to think that just because someone has the right skin color they are all set for representing certain types of issues.  That's pretty much the definition of racism, I think.

I agree with u that just being black dont make anyone representative of anything especially if this person dont have a good profile.Wich is not her case as far as i see.Shes a beautiful, well educated black women who worked hard on her carrer, grew as a person and professional, achieved a lot and now is becoming a royal.Thats a lot to admire in my opinion.It may not be everyones opinion but for sure many does thinks its a lot.As far as i see and the public shows whenever shes out and about in royal events many people like her already and if she turns out to be a good royal i do think she will become representative of many people.

I also have to disappoint BUT there are already black monarchs. They are in Africa.
I know there are other black royals and aristos.But none of them will have the importance and exposition she will.Thats why when i say she will be the first black princess im referening to the importance of the british royal familly in the world and the publicity it will create and how many people will be affected by this.People from all colours will see this women suffering racism and fighing back being defended and will feel empowered by it and will want to help.And again this is all great PR for the RF just saying as obviouslly they will try to defend her and fight against it.Lets not forget that theyre kids wil probabblly be black as well.Royal black people by blood and i wonder what people will say when these kids started being atacked for theyre skin colour.Are they using the race card as well?

Why didn't Meghan try to modernize them with her half-white heritage, you know, the one she associates with all of the time, except for when it suits her.I'd like to see your point of you on that but for me - her skin color is white, she associates with only white people, she's finding it very convenient that her mom is half black and thinks that she'll go all "look at me, my mom is half-black and therefore has suffered, now the whole world owes Me-me-me". She's not modernizing anything.

Hard to answer when i dont know her or how she feels.Fact is she is who she is and racism exists.U cant try to invalidate this simply coz u dont like this women or think, believes shes using racism for her convenience.I dont agree or disagree with u on this.As ive said i believe time shows everything and if shes using her race for convenience and as an excuse it will show clearlly, especially for black people, and it will have severe consequences for her and for the royals too.Thats why i wouldnt worry much about it coz time shows everything.

I agree shes not modernizing anything and i dont think she had the obligation to do any of this if thats now what she wants anyway.That dont mean shes a bad person.What if shes just a good royal and wife, mother?

Besides - let's not forget, we know so far her heritage from her mother's side until great-grandmother. Each one of there women had married a white guy (opportunist much). Therefore, Meghan's mom is technically 1/4th black if we assume that her grand-mother was 100% african-american. That will mean that Meghan is 1/8th black. Only 1/8th. That's 12.5%. If she takes DNA test she'll probably show much less of the heritage that she conveniently parades for sympathy and for personal gain.

Besides i do agree with u on this as i also think shes more white than black and lives a life more as a white rich women than a black normal one.It doesnt change the fact that shes half black and she  had been suffering racism from day one coz of it.It also dont change the fact that if she decides to use such racism as an excuse, convinience theres nothing people can do about it coz well its not like shes lying.Racism does exists and shes an esy target and victim of it.Just today theres a front page article at the DM talking about it.So yeah until it becomes clear through her actions that shes using the "race card" as its called,  she is a victim!

Racims is wrong, is cruel and is also a crime by the way.If people are atacking her and offending her for being black i dont care who she is and how she is she has all my support to fight back this *copulating* pigs *jerks*.

And lastly - I am far from invalidating that lots of people have suffered prejudices in Europe and racism in US. To me the way forward from prejudices is with having our kids at the same playground. This is massively done in Europe and the people of tomorrow will be even more accepting and inclusive.

I agree with u and i add that thankfully for every racist person there are thousands of good ones.So theres hope for change.Always.

To me Meghan represents everything that is wrong about such issues as prejudice and racism.


I respect ure opinion but i think diferent.As ive listed dont think she represents all thats wrong.I think shes being victim of racism and hated simply coz shes not what people wanted or expected. Theres a lot of overreaction and it did happened to all others royal gfs and they survived.She will survive too and i believe she will be a good royal.If she will change something or be a role model for someone it will depend on her actions.Again time shows everything and if shes lying or using the race card for convenience she will have a huge backlash and it wont be nice.

Where do you get the history of Megan's mother side of the family and the white men they married. I find it hard to believe her mother's only a quarter black but it could be but it should be. Again where do you get that information because I'd be curious to read it. But again I want to reiterate as I did on another thread I don't think her Race Matters one bit no matter how much black white or any other color she has in her. Her sincerity matters and I don't think it's there. Plus she needs to learn how to comb her hair at all functions and dress appropriately for the function. That she has not learned yet.
