New diary date for #Meghanmarkle & #princeharry. Continuing their tour of UK, they’ll go to Edinburgh, Scotland on Tuesday 13 February. Visits include Edinburgh castle, a youth cafe & Social Bite which tackles homelessness.

Prince Harry and Ms. Markle will visit Edinburgh on 13th February, where they will attend engagements at @edinburghcastle, local social enterprise @SocialBite_, and a reception celebrating youth achievement to mark Scottish Year of Young People at the Palace of Holyroodhouse.
Kensington Palace Twitter announcement.
The sh*t show continues. It’s boring watching her act like a silly Hollywood star overwhelmed by her adoring fans and then shows her boredom and disinterest once she’s with the regular folks. How long will she crack under the endless boredom at meeting with regular people instead of hobnobbing with Harry’s celebrity friends and attending exclusive members only clubs.   :cookie:

People are underwhelmed by her, even before the marriage, which says a lot.  :tehe:

I wonder if she will be as subdued as she was at the Endeavour Awards, not a single look into the cameras, I was  :o

I have my 2cents on this. M's leak to EA was that they'll visit the castle and the gift shops... something right up M's delusional mind. But clearly somewhere up the ranks in brf they didn't really like the level of self-entitlement that M has - chasing away the homeless from her wedding venue so that the pictures don't get tainted with badly dressed plebs (so that there's no competition to the plebzilla), visiting the castles only - clearly very interested in the toddlers with tiaras but not the people and ....now meeting with the homeless in Edinburgh to rebuff the obvious disdain to poor and troubled people (like her own family).

Average people here don't like her much. Can't say about the rest of the USA. Scotland? Not sure what they would think. There is that ongoing war with England and I hope they get their independence. But they seem okay with keeping the BRF. They may like the tacky American. Drops down the English a bit.

An appearance before Valentine's Day so people can ask Megs and Hare what they will be doing on that day. Remember when Kate had an appearance on Valentine's Day, I think it was 2012, and a little boy asked her what did William give her and she said he sent flowers.  :wopedo:

Crowds are stretched down the Royal Mile to Edinburgh Castle in freezing weather according to journos. There was icy sleet earlier. The Royal Scottish Regiment pony mascot which was drawn up waiting tried to nip Harry's hand to Meghan's amusement. As a gesture to Scotland and the regiment Meghan was wearing a coat in the same tartan and carried a handbag by an Edinburgh firm.

I'm surprised there were any people at all actually. A poster on another forum said a couple of hours before Harry and Meghan arrived that conditions were absolutely icy and earlier there had been sleet which (as I can attest to having been in Scotland one January) cuts like a knife. The people waiting were troopers, so so good and some waited for hours. They cheered when the couple arrived and people waiting outside the cafe they visited also cheered.

IMO, this is a dog and pony show to deflect from Andrew’s ongoing sex scandal case (Epstein’s on trial in March, 2018), and now this:
https://www.mirror.co.uk/news/uk-news/commonwealth-in-secret-talks-over-12016486.amp?__twitter_impression=true

This is indeed a sensitive situation like Wills was referring to. I highly doubt it was about this unsuitable woman marrying in. What happens if the talks don’t go well or they postpone it until after this disastrous wedding that might very well take place to save the Commonwealth countries from leaving? Will they want Harry and his trolop to tour the commonwealth? This situation could be very bad for the royal family if not done right.
She’s copying Victoria Beckham with her long trousers and monochrome look. Unfortunately for her, she looks bad unlike VB who just looks stupid and desperate.

I live in Edinburgh and can attest to the fact it was a bitingly cold wind, as per usual in winter. And it was driving sleet this morning. It's not that warm in summer either. The wind comes either from the Arctic or The North Sea.

And it might be that the people there were tourists visiting the castle and they roped off sections of the esplanade to prevent the crowd from moving and making it look like there's a crowd there to see them.

And before I forget, Edinburgh is known as, amongst others, Windy City, just like Chicago.

 With all this emphasis on the homeless, the next series of articles should be the wedding being moved  from the church at Windsor castle to a local registry office and the reception in the hall in the back, thereby not having to move the local homeless people or waste money that should go towards their housing on security. This tack fest just continues to roll on. The next stop might be Northern Ireland.

Meghan and Kate should get a good hair trim. It is going to be dueling duchesses on appearances both constantly pushing their hair back away from their faces. If only some new hairstyle not involving long hair parted in the middle comes around.

How will this marriage stop the Commonwealth countries from leaving? I would think it would make them leave because of the unsuitability of this marriage. I had more of a crowd in Scotland watching my clan march down royal mile, actually all the clans that gathered that day marched down Royal mile. But it was summer in all fairness. Her outfit was casual and Harry needs to find a new color to add to his wardrobe. They looked okay together. She is not very stylish as it turns out. And very ordinary looking even with the nose job. Somehow she looked better on Suits.

Harry is not a future King. The Queen deemed the marriage suitable. I don't see a problem. The next in line for King is Charles with Harry further down in line of succession. If it were unsuitable, Harry would have stepped out of line of succession. He didn't.

I like that she's wearing trousers and (mostly, not always) is weather appropriately dressed, but those trousers are seriously fugly. On top they look good (love the pearl buttons), but the palazzo/ bell bottom lower part is just horrid, and very Vic Beckham-like.
Though M seems to have been a fan of these styled trousers for a while

Shows that fitted trousers look much much better, also these don't pick up dirt and rain off the street and don't pose a tripping hazard, and don't need stilettos to even be able to wear them at all... So much nicer (the below example)!

^ Wearing trousers isn't the problem, this style (palazzo/ bell bottom) is the problem. Same with Kate, skirts aren't necessarily the problem, but the length or weight of them is and she flashes all the time. Both seem to want to stick to what they like or be "stylish" or whatever tf they are thinking, and come out in totally impractical or inappropriate clothing.
I can't say enough how much I love that M wears trousers and doesn't just stick to dresses and skirts like it's the 1910s or so (when it was scandalous for a woman to wear trousers).
Also, I just remembered Kate's spray on jegging addiction, and compared to that these palazzos are much better.

I'm glad to see a little of the interior of Holyrood House here. It's a stunning place in reality and very connected with the Scottish Kings and Mary Queen of Scots. Don't know how warm it is in Feb though. I went in the summer.

It seems like Harry was me distant with her and just concentrated on the people and task infront of him. Actually, he did that at the Endevour awards, but no matter how he treats her, she's not going anywhere as he's her meal ticket.

Omid Scopie seems to be her pr as he's the one that tweeted the wedding details and what she merchandised today and prior to that, the Endevour awards. It's hard to keep up with the users, but I think this is the one who wrote for the gossip magazine and is an ex of Markus.  :ick:

That is just the nature of their relationship IMO. She is mothering to him as that is what he needs. Whereas with Waity, her family does the mothering collectively. Sparkles is the boss of them and that is how they are. It would be interesting to see if she was that way with her ex or just is doing this to manipulative and nail Harry. Losing Di has left a void and women who know how to fill the void get them.

Kate doesn't touch William nor he her very much. I don't see the others touchy feely either in public. And that just is the way they are. I don't think anyone is accused of being cold although as a group they are more aloof acting than other families. If she didn't touch him, no one would say she is cold. She is too gushy to be considered cold. She overdoes it for average people I think. She is just mothering him as that is her role she has made in their relationship. It very well may change in time.
