Why would that make her look odd I travel with antibacterial wipes too and hand sanitizer have one in ever bag in the car when I go grocery shopping wipe down the cart if I rent a car I wipe down the wheel .so it's not that odd Meghan people do it all that time.

^odd, isn't it, unless the press is saying that her dirty past can't be scrubbed clean and is being exposed.  ???
This is annoying because this rumour won't die. I'd like to see proof that this actually happened. It wouldn't surprise me if it did.  :cookie:

Airplanes are probably a zillion times more clean than the Soho Houses Markle likes to frequent. N A S A technicians in haz-mat suits should be enlisted to hose down anyone who spends 15 minutes in a Soho House branch. One expects those bike seats she and Millie MacIntosh were straddling at the Oxfordshire Soho Farmhouse were burned and the ashes buried in a lime pit.

If the Christian faith was that important to this woman we would have seen her attending church services by now surely? She is using the church to make her passage to royalty easier and the hypocrisy of this stinks to the heavens. The fact that Justin Welby is going along with this and confirming her is obscene and we must question his leadership. This whole affair is hypocritical, dishonest and frankly shameful. The Royal Family should set a better example. The fact that they are not , tells me they are past their sell by date....

These two should not try hiding or denying she's been married before. Many people get it wrong and remarry but accept they'll do so in a registry office and not a church. I mean if I were to marry again there's no way I could face walking down the aisle in gods house and promising to honour vows but actually mean it this time? Id feel awkward and hypocritical if I tried doing a first timers wedding again.

More and more comments about this being her 3rd marriage.  ??? :dontknow:  She's risen to dizzying heights so her fall will be spectacular.  :cookie:  IMO, this would be why Harry's doing this because he's no a man who puts up with users like her. Her image's bad and he's not lifting a finger to do anything about it but letting her sink herself.  :thumbsup:

IMO The people saying this will be the third marriage have no definitive proof to back them up--I think it's in the same genre of accusing her of breaking her dogs legs.. The royals would have vetted her thoroughly so no extra husbands would show up in her records. The rumor won't die because those who don't like Meghan will keep saying it in the hopes some will believe it. The royal men in gray would have dug this up in a heartbeat ages ago if it were true.

I don't see her doing anything more than doing appearances with Harry and preparing for the wedding.

The palace no longer has control over the royals; the courtiers are basically powerless now and it's clear that despite accusations of persecution, the new generation of royals basically do nothing except what they want, even if they harm someone else badly. The courtiers can't prevent Harry from doing anything anymore.

I think when he trashed his parents he was trying to "guilt trip" them so they would capitulate and make Camilla " non negotiable." Big mistakes: his outing her as his mistress and his mother allowing the marriage. The royals I think cannot overcome the C and C disaster and it impacts what the younger generation do now.

Post by: Kuei Fei on March 05, 2018, 03:05:34 am
You know, it's not just because of Charles and Camilla; Harry is too selfish to care about how his actions affect others. He thinks he can tell the world how to work, but that isn't how things go. The courtiers should resign en-masse and walk away from the BRF mainly since too many of them work hard only to have it all thrown back in their faces all the time. The courtiers write speeches, plan events, bow scrape and defer, only to have the BRF throw it all back in their faces. At the risk of being flamed, I hope Harry does in fact go global and make a stark raving fool of himself and the BRF crash.

The 'she's been vetted' card has the same weight as the race card for me and the weight is zero. Vetted or not vetted this is the most dishonest person who is also ad infinitum immoral that I have ever seen in my life.

Vetted or not vetted there is zero excuse for misappropriating metoo and timesup during the mental health interview of the 'fab four'. In fact it begs the question: does she know what she's attending or she only knows the brands she merches. And, is she part of the discussion or part of the mental health problem.

To me, she’s part of the problem because she gets caught up in her own narrative and doesn’t see or understand other people’s point of view or the situation she’s in. She seems tone deaf since she came on the scene.

It's not just about the dog story now, some DM commentator wanted Meghan to drown. Some of the comments are sick.

The facts about the dogs are not known. I saw a woman walking a dog down the street and the dog's leg was bandaged, he was walking on three legs. I know nothing about how the dog broke the leg. But blaming the owner for it without knowing the facts is impossible to do.

^ Yes, and the silence on the dog's condition is what is so strange.  Meggles loves to tell us all about her life.  Why not tell what happened to her dog whom she loves so much?  This is not like her.

If Meghan answered all the "charges" on the DM board it would be an impossible task. Because even if she sent photos of the dogs being healthy and explained, the Tumblr and DM board people would say she is lying and the photos are fake.

Typical narc celebrity who's so passionate about a cause, she doesn't pay attention that the # is spelt wrong.  :bored:  Just like MM, this one talks out of her behind too; all talk and #, but no action.

Creating a circus is how celebrities conduct themselves. The constant pr that creates an over-the-top atmosphere to make it seem like they're so cool and desired is air to them. Look at this mess with MM. Sinc the statement, she's been seen to have Harry and the royal family on the run; allowing her o do as she pleases like no other woman before her. Harry, blood prince of an old instution like the British royal family's basically fallen for and eager to marry a divorced actress with a very dubious background who wants to push her agenda on the world at every opportunity and dismiss the pecking order of the royal family hierarchy by talking over Harry or who ever else talkes away from the bs she wants to say and blatanly uses her worldwide exposure to merchandise as oppose to highlighting charities that she visists with Harry; the kind of wman he's tossed to the side before. Makes sense to me.  :tehe:  For quite some time, peolpe believe that the royal family needs shaking up because they became stale. Harry's giving them what they want with this fiasco with MM. I think that this mess has to end before the commonwealth service though because she shouldn't be part of anything official regarding the commonwealth unless this hidious mess actual goes to marriage. I don't see Charles being chosen head of the commonwealth when this circus within his own family's alloud to continue. He's look weak if he can't get his house in order. Sorry to beat this theory to the ground, but I think Harry's being directed and MM's being strung out to dry by her own actions and words as she continues to show that she has no clue as to what the royal famiy's about and she should be gone in a flash just the same whay she appeared. The royal family now more than ever, have to show what they're about and why people would want them around instead of dismissing them. Harry/MM represent celebrity circus whereas the rest of the family show stability and steadfastness.

i do think interesting that dog episode happened when it was reported harry wasnt attending hunting party in Sandringham to not upset Meghan (there was a story like that)... hopefully the dog wasnt around during a row :-X

this whole 'mystery' remembers me when kate at last moment didnt appear in that event (she broke the tradition) and soon after William went to Jecca'wedding without Kate and the kids :Kate:

The truth is we don't know what goes on in private and that will be very covered up. She is the type to tell animal lover fans that her dog fell on a rugged trail on the estate and is doing fine but.... silence. Either it is sinister or she is too wrapped up with her agendas to talk about her dog to the public. She may not care that much anymore as her plate is very full. I don't know how she rescues animals. At least one of these dogs was an Ellen DeGeneres dog she took. So it is not like she waits at the pounds for them or takes then off the street like I do.

Did Meghan Markle Have a Low-Key Bachelorette Party This Weekend?
Quote
Meghan Markle can check off one more item on her wedding to-do list: Multiple outlets report that the bride-to-be had her bachelorette party (or, in Brit-speak, her “hen do”) this weekend.
On the itinerary? Lots of rest and relaxation. Instead of a wild night on the town, she reportedly enjoyed a glamorous spa day with a group of close friends. The exact spa hasn’t been revealed, but some suspect it’s the Soho Farmhouse, an alleged favorite of Markle’s.
The guest list was equally as secretive, although London’s Times reports rumored names include fashion designer Misha Nonoo and Violet von Westenholz, who is thought to have introduced Markle and Prince Harry. Kate Middleton was apparently unable to attend, as the seven months pregnant duchess had a jam-packed schedule that saw her make several appearances last week. Still, this low-key bachelorette party is right out of Middleton’s playbook. Before her 2011 wedding to Prince William, it was said she enjoyed a small, private dinner with friends.
Markle and Middleton have good reason for keeping their bachelorette parties quiet: As royalty, and royalty-in-training, they can’t exactly risk public revelry lest it end up on the front page of the tabloids. Yet they also represent a growing trend of women opting for pampering over partying. Vogue, for one, is all about these calm celebrations: from a beach-chic luxury spa in Mexico to a wellness retreat in the mountains of Utah. After all, what better way to achieve a pre-wedding glow?
https://www.vogue.com/article/meghan-markle-low-key-bachelorette-party
 :tehe:  This wman would make sure the press would be present if any celebrities listed would've attended.

 A long time ago Princess Anne's dog killed one of the corgis. And it was MM who let out the news she was depressed over her dog's broken leg. She talked about her dogs in her engagement interview so that is why it is being mentioned. Don't know if Bea's dog do it too.

I think she was a house girl, there is no other reason for her to be a Soho member since she's not exceptionally powerful or wealthy or famous; it would explain why she managed to be in Harry's set and afford all that designer gear or travel. Nothing can convince me that she was in fact someone who had the status through her acting that she could basically afford membership and get passed in an application.

^the same thing was said about her and the owner of Soho House in London.  :cookie:  So more articles basically calling her a escort/house girl, so how’s Harry going to explain why he’s with her/what this crapfest is about. Regarding this situation, the “don’t complain, don’t complain” doesn’t apply because of the statement that kicks off this bizarre situation in the first place.
The few articles regarding her dealing with the IRS said that she’d had to declare if Harry’s giving her an allowance for living expenses. Odd wording but she can’t declare that she makes money being an escort so she has to declare that she’s making money merchandising goods when she’s making appearances with Harry.  :cookie:  Working whilst on a non-workers visa and bidding her escort fee, umm big issues with immigration and the tax authorities.

Everything We Know About Meghan Markle's Private Bridal Shower

Wedding bells for Meghan Markle just keep getting louder and louder.

With a little more than two months to go until the Suits star and Prince Harry tie the knot, E! News is learning more details about a special event the bride-to-be recently enjoyed.

A source confirms that Meghan was treated to a bridal shower at Soho Farmhouse in Oxfordshire this weekend.

"Markus Anderson has helped throw the shower for Meghan and a small group of mostly her London friends," an insider shared with us. "It's just a relaxing day of good food and pampering."

According to the venue's website, the member's club sits on 100 acres of Oxfordshire countryside. Guests can enjoy spas, a cinema, tennis courts, horse stables and more amenities.

Kate is prettier than Megan and of course Megan had a nose job and what else done to her so It Is by no way natural beauty. I find her to be a little bit better than cute and in some photos I would say less. But people want to sell magazine articles. I still can't believe that Harry is marrying this type of girl and that the palace is accepting it. I don't know what is going on with them but it is the end coming down the line and maybe the queen knows it and since she's going to die soon doesn't really care anymore.

Kate, The Potato Head, has had plenty of plastic surgery. There is nothing natural about her looks. As for nose jobs, she has had her porcine snout whittled down atleast twice to looks less pig like.

Kate is not prettier. Both are not raving beauties. Kate has clearly had work done and she looks old for her age. Kate is not a "natural beauty" she has "people" doing her hair and make up. Meghan does resemble Pippa to a degree. So she is the same "type" as a Middleton IMO. Why wouldn't the Palace accept her after letting a divorcee in already (married to a divorced Prince of Wales)? She committed no crime and much of the Tumblr talk is unsubstantiated gossip.

Title: Re: Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are engaged III
Post by: sandy on March 06, 2018, 04:37:49 pm
I see Cressida as pretty but not a raving beauty.  None of them are. I found Chelsy to be cuter than Cressida and has more of a personality. I never saw Chelsy as plain. I think Cressida is on the plain side but rather sharp featured with a high forehead she also needs to have someone be a fashion consultant. her gowns seem rather ill fitting on her like she got the wrong size. None of them are as beautiful as Princess Diana was. Kate looks a bit like actress Karen Allen.

I've always found Chelsy a plain girl with a quite vulgar style (a Money Can't Buy You Class classic case IMO) - being a drunken mess and having a personality are different things IMO... if she was a brunette as the Middletons she'll made Kate look like a beauty... cressida has fine structure and harmonious features IMO. Meghan is well put together and that's that

Post by: lesken on March 06, 2018, 05:41:47 pm
@dianab I agree that Cressy was the best in this lot, but Kate was very cute in college before she aged. Unless Kate really had plastic surgery, she is more natural than Meghan and I think much better looking although not the best in my book by any means. Meghan needed a lot of fixing before she could even date any of these guys. Look at her old photos. And Pippa is just plain. Meghan is better now than Pippa although the same before the nose, teeth and hair redo. The boys do not have the best taste in looks obviously. And based on her gallivanting around with older richer men, yes she is a paid companion. I didn't realize it until I saw all the photos with the various men. Those are not love interests.


Title: Re: Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are engaged III
Post by: sandy on March 06, 2018, 06:14:48 pm
I disagree. Cressida is no raving beauty nor the best of the lot. Cressida looked very scruffy to me. And she had the Cara like High Forehead. But the point is Harry did not select Cressida or Chelsy.

Chelsy was not a 'drunk." "Drunks" don't go to law school and complete the degree. It is ironic how today Chelsy would be very welcome compared to Meghan IMO. She was loathed by some commentators for some reason and compared to "angelic Kate"--this was the topic of the day some years ago. I don't think Harry really was that interested in Cressida, she seemed immature for her age and very high maintenance. Her message after Harry got engaged IMO was on the tacky side. Sometimes appearances are not the only thing that matter, I found something off-putting about Cressida as an attention seeker. If Chelsy is called a "drunk" why not the three of the now fab four: Harry, William and Kate seen falling out of nightclubs worse for wear. Meghan has not been seen staggering out of clubs worse for wear.

@Sandy  Unfortunately, my husband made it drunk all through law school and passed the bar drunk. He was on the wagon when we married but then fell off. Point is you can be drunk and pass law school if you are intelligent enough it seems. @Dianab I had read about MM adopting one of Ellen's rescues. Ellen is a big true animal rights person and I have seen her at events like that. Don't know the story of how Ellen was adopting out dogs that time, but MM got one of hers. Probably went to some celeb thing and liked the dog.

Post by: sandy on March 06, 2018, 07:02:30 pm
Right but that still does not mean that Chelsy was a "drunk." If she were she would have been sent to rehab. A few times or been arrested. No record of it. She looks happy and healthy to me. The royal brothers probably absorbed a lot more booze but heaven forbid they be called "drunks."  

Why is Chelsy being trashed like this? Just curious. She seems OK to me. There is no record of her being called an "alcoholic."

Chelsy was a drunken mess during her relationship with harry and after too - at least until around Kate and William wedding... there are pictures to prove that. If she wasnt pretty into alchool Harry would have never wasted his time with her, let alone Chelsy with him... I believe Cressida also must have been into alchool to waste her time with Harry and being friends with Guy Pelly. Nothing that changes she was and is a pretty girl IMO (and others share my opinion). Chelsy is that case being blond dont equals to be pretty.

I'm believe Kate and William are - at least were - pretty into alcohol but not so bad as harry. Harry himself admitted William got him to ask for help, maybe alchool dont controls william that badly.

PS. Harry definitely was a drunken mess and probably still is

Kate allegedly drank William under the table and her main venue was the clubs and bars where the hard stuff was served; we almost never saw WK enjoying clean fun things like picnics and outings to a village fete. I do think Meg however is worse and has done worse.

 There is one thing drinking another to be alcoholic. And this applies to all people discussed Meghan, Harry, William, Kate and so on.

If Harry were a "drunken mess" he would have lost his looks and become bloated around the face (not just his hair like Will--Harry now has a bald spot). Both though have not aged that well but that's the way of Windsor men. Prince Andrew was once considered "hot" and look how that turned out. They go the way of Windsor men in the lack of looks department.

They all drank a lot but I would not single out one of them as the "mess." I can have a portfolio of all of them falling out of clubs looking like they are in lala land. Chelsy and Harry were a cute couple. I like that one of them together when he graduated Sandhurst. They looked great not like "drunks."

in favor of chelsy, i say she's a smart woman, she never EVER pushed to become part of that crazy family... the money of her father gives her a wonderful life... no need to join a crazy family and led a life doomed to unhappiness  :thumbsup: to her

You haven't missed it! Meghan Markle postpones her luxury hen do as she is waiting for her mother to arrive
Quote
A royal source tells me: ‘The hen do won’t be until Meghan’s mother, Doria Radlan, and her best friend, Jessica Mulroney, fly over for the church service where she will be baptised and confirmed into the Church of England.
‘The hen party will be held around the same time. Meghan wants Jessica and her mum to be there. The spa visit was just a trip with a few friends.’

The service, to be conducted by the Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, and held at Kensington Palace’s 19th-century chapel, is expected to take place imminently.

I'd imagine Sebastian or whatever his name is was referring to a bridal shower, in which people buy little gifts for the bride to be. Two of Meghan's friends, Lindsay Roth (having had her baby) and Heather Dewar are in the UK at the moment and they and Meghan may have gone for a spa pampering weekend with them and the tabs got hold of the wrong end of the stick. When her mum comes to London for the confirmation there may be a bridal shower.

Remember Meghan Markle’s half-sister, Samantha Grant? The one who is reportedly writing a tell-all about her relationship with Meghan called The Diary of Princess Pushy’s Sister? It’s been a while since we’ve heard from her (maybe because she ran out of third-tier media outlets to talk to), but thanks to some intrepid Mirror reporting, we have a new sorta-relative of Meghan’s to obsess over: her half-sister’s ex-husband, Scott Rasmussen!

He calls Samantha “pushy” and described her as “the last person who should be at Windsor Castle.” And as for whether or not she should even be invited—something the tabloids have loved speculating about in the past—Rasmussen says his ex-wife “should be sent to the Tower of London” if she steps foot in England. This man has thoughts and he wants you to hear them!

Celebrate the upcoming royal wedding with a royal *copulate*, and keep it safe courtesy of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle themed condoms.

A company called Crown Jewels (waggles eyebrows) are releasing limited edition souvenir condoms in time for the May 19 wedding. While they’re not currently available for purchase, you can submit your e-mail address so that you’ll be notified when they are.

Crown Jewels—“the proud purveyor of an exclusive range of heritage love sheaths”—also released Prince William and Kate Middleton-themed condoms in 2011, but these Harry and Meghan condoms are way cooler (just like the couple themselves). Here’s what you’ll receive with your purchase:

Four condoms “fit for a prince”
A certificate of authenticity
An “exclusive arrangement” of “God Save the Queen” and “The Star Spangled Banner” upon opening the box
It’s charming that Crown Jewels promises that, with these condoms, “Your prince will come.” Okay, but will I???

I hope I'm not repeating this information. If it was posted somewhere else already, I'm sorry.

Here it goes. Meggie invited Kate for a get together with friends to show her how "normal" her friends are and Kate declined. As seen previously - the egomaniacal narc wrote a blind gossip to complain. Sorry, not sorry - but I'm starting to like Kate and my dislike for her unawareness of the use of pants is very well documented here.

P.S. How do I know 110% that Megi wrote this blind - poor little thing couldn't resist to insult Kate by calling her a snob. In this case - I don't see Kate as snob. I see her as a woman with common sense. She doesn't have to make appearance, pop up or say hello to Meghan's friends, whoever those z-list yachting colleagues friends are. It doesn't make her a 'snob' if she doesn't do Meghan's bidding. In fact, it makes Meghan and her friends bitter bit@es.

However, she just can’t say she was insulted.

If she tries to make a thing out of it, she looks bad. She was actually very insulted. This wasn’t some huge, wild event. It was a few close friends getting together and it was her chance to show [her future relative] how “normal” her friends are. [Future Relative] didn’t need to stay for the whole thing. It was local, so she could have done just a quick pop by to say hello. She couldn’t spare five freaking minutes of her precious time? Now [Actress] has to pretend that everything is fine so it doesn’t look like she got snubbed.

Harry and Meghan are not plugging those condoms. But way back when Diana and Charles' wedding photo was used as a promo for birth control on a bill board no less. This is the truth. I don't get why Meghan and Harry are being blamed.

I don't "like" Kate more because of Meghan. She's still a lazy person and a social climber who waited ten years for the ring.

I think it is more unsubstantiated gossip to trash Meghan. This is offensive IMO and it does not make Meghan "bad".

The likes of Meghan would also try to get a pap pic for blackmail or 'discover' the belly or tape Kate so that their future is secured.

It's really not on Kate to play bff with Meghan. It does not make her a snob to not play by Meghan's pushy tune. It makes Meghan insensitive and quite frankly untrustworthy to say the least if as soon as there's a conversation between the two there's a blind about it.

I find it intriguing that these princes have gotten engaged and married to women who have no real female friends of their own. Sophie, no female friends; Kate, no female friends (for obvious reasons), and Meg has no real female friends that are not at all part of her Hollywood life.

It's really not on Kate to play bff with Meghan. It does not make her a snob to not play by Meghan's pushy tune. It makes Meghan insensitive and quite frankly untrustworthy to say the least if as soon as there's a conversation between the two there's a blind about it.

Kate is no different than Meg, only Kate is British and that supposedly gives Kate a patina of respectability. Kate has also aggressively cultivated an image nad persona of being as boring and bland and respectable as possible.

'Secret' is the Fail's word for it. The BRF would call it private and quiet, IMO. It's a religious ceremony not a public engagement.  It's hardly clandestine if the Head Primate of the Church of England, it's next Supreme Governor, Harry and Camilla, were present. No photographs have ever been taken of any of the confirmation services within the BRF, and if any have been taken of their baptism ceremonies they've never been published.

They were joined by Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall, but neither Prince William nor the Queen were present.
Tuesday’s service observed the full ritual of the Church with holy water from the River Jordan from the private Royal Family font poured on Miss Markle’s head.
Insiders also said it was fitting that the Prince of Wales, who will be the next head of the Church, attended the service.
After her parents split, Miss Markle attended the Roman Catholic Immaculate Heart girls’ high school in Los Angeles, although she was not Catholic.
Her first husband Trevor Engelson was Jewish but she did not convert to his faith. The couple met in 2004 and married in 2011 but were divorced two years later.
Church guidelines suggest that Miss Markle may be interviewed about her divorce from Engelson, a film producer.
If such a conversation were to occur, the minister would ask if there had been ‘sufficient healing of the personal and social wounds’ from the divorce.
Kensington Palace declined to comment.

At least this article has the correct location containing a chapel. KP was in the previous one. IMO, having this crass divorce on the scene might also be softening up Camilla's image as she's seen to be not too bad. From what I see, MM's being used for a lot of different things to me, but still, her presence still makes the royal's look weak because it does look like this woman has something on them and that Harry would marry someone that uses, lies and doesn't give a damn about other people.  :cookie:  The aticle's full of "it is believed, it is understood, etc" so this seems like a gaslighting article to keep up the narrative. Remember in the VF interview, she did say she'd have stories to tell. I guess this is what they meant.
Maybe the royal family's playing her game to make her look foolish and to add to the circus of this celebrity wedding. Commonwealth stuff's fast approaching and I really hope this woman's gone back to America before then.  8) The lies, deceit, deception, fake news, pr games, etc, just adds to the stupidity of this whole mess.

Nothing or nobody would make me change my opinion about Camilla who I think is the lowest of the low. If MEghan busts up the marriage of a naive young woman then I will give it some thought. But Camilla is light years worse than Meghan and Kate IMO. Never could stand the woman. Oh yes, Camilla to me is "bad." If she had not been around butting in Diana may have lived to see her grandchildren. Meghan is not "evil" is not perfect but probably did not do most of the things the Tumblr Crew accuse her of doing. Camilla's record is very very true.

ANd the royals don't let the public watch anybody being baptized. There are pictures later of the babies with their families after the Christening. But there is no "royal Christening" live coverage. I don't know why DM likes the click bait headlines or maybe I do...

Her baptism was followed immediately by her confirmation, which means she will be able to join Harry, 33, at Holy Communion.
Miss Markle did not need to become an Anglican in order to marry Harry in church, but at the time of their engagement last November she made clear she had chosen to be baptised and confirmed out of respect for the Queen’s role as the head of the Church of England.
However, it is understood there were 18 guests who after the ceremony walked to Clarence House, where Charles and Camilla hosted a dinner.

Meghan Markle claims she wanted to be baptised into the C. of E. "out of respect for the Queen's role as head of the Church of England". That is insulting to all the Christians who are not members of the C. of E. but who do respect the Queen's role in her church. I'm not sure that is reason enough to be converted; does MM believe in the C. of E. and it's teachings or not, that I believe should be the issue.

Religious conversions for the benefit of a new spouse are just so gross. Religious beliefs (or lack thereof) are some of the most personal and fundamental ideas that define a person, and if you are so quick to attach to an ideology, or detach from another, just to please a partner, then you have problems.
Even though this mightn't have happened, it's the principle of her easily changing religions to please a partner. Bringing the queen again into this should be the end of this crap.

This happens all the time and not just to public figures. A married couple might want to have the same religion and the man or woman converts. Elizabeth Taylor converted to Judaism for instance when she married Eddie Fisher. I don't think Harry is all that religious to begin with in any case.

I thought the baptism etc was reported as having happened yesterday. It says it was in the DM.

And btw Meghan and Lindsay Roth met in English Lit class in their freshman year at NW and have remained best friends ever since. This was long before either of them were in show business so I wouldn't class this as a show biz relationship. Anyway, most actors, actresses, directors etc have their main friendships within their profession. I would regard that as being natural.

As for the Archbishop not saying anything nasty, no he wouldn't. But he's met both of them and said something nice when he didn't have to say anything at all.

After all, nothing was said about Kate's attitude to faith before her confirmation by any senior churchman. It's also quite unusual for the Primate of all England to give private instruction to an inductee into the Church. But a bond has been struck obviously as has been said.

It’s indeed an insult to have her attend this event because she’s just about her own self and not really about women on a whole. It’s obvious the whole greeting was staged and her hugging the kid’s cringeworthy as she’s so fake and stiff.
JCtew coat and possibly the same suit she wore for the Endeavor awards.
^the baptism seems fake, but indeed she’d do anything to advance herself.

They all look uncomfortable hugging children. I have yet to see a really warm greeting by this generation of royals.

The Baptism was real and it would not be 'faked.'

This time I actually like her outfit but her hair was so awful at the top where her hair zig zag at the part. I must say that the chemical treatment she has on her hair makes it look really nice and straight and a nice texture but it must be horrendous to keep it together because she never has it together. It just can't fall right all the way around even when it's up in a bun. That's actually a minor thing in reality. I don't know the hugs looked okay and she and Harry both patted each other so I do think they're happy couple right now. How things work out after they're married and she starts feeling comfortable is another thing. But time will tell. I do realize that Harry cannot be with a nice proper girl and feel comfortable. So this may be it in terms of what he would choose even if he remarried.

Not really a good choice - another bathrobe, pants, no stockings, the evil stare, staged hugs with kids, staged kneeling down to another kid... yet the gullible public is still not gullible enough to like her.  :tehe:
^I can predict from now how things will work out after the marriage - the very moment she doesn't like something about anyone in the royal family there will be a blind gossip about it. The oh so private and mysterious rf will be turned into a soap-opera/reality-show alla real housewives.

I don't think everybody dislikes her. That would be an impossibility considering there is a large population to consider.

She would have to be careful since there are backstabbers in the royal family and their circle as Princess Diana soon found out. And she was an aristo!

As I said, I never saw a young royal or Charles and his wife and the current royals being comfortable looking with children. It is so fake. Sometimes children are just taken out of school to show the royal visiting "draws crowds."

^We know that its 50/50, some people like her and some don't. And it'll be the same for people within Harry's fam as well.

No reason to get worked up about two people we will never know, they have no power anyway, they only fund and visit charities, and that's good enough for me so that people get the help they need.

I feel sorry for Megs if she and Harry were ever to fall out of love with each other, because then who would she have as support? She would be in the same predicament as Diana.

I don't believe in that expression: "happy wife, happy life." I say "a happy man will stay and never stray." So Megs better cater to Harry's every whim or else he will find someone else to make him happy, and then it'll be "like father, like son."  :cookie:

I would not even say 50/50. Unless everybody is surveyed I think it impossible to pin it down so specifically. And opinions are fluid too.

What about the man catering to his wife. I think the happy man will stay and never stray seems a rather Edwardian sentiment. And it is true that a couple married years and years may even have problems them. And a man may "stray" with a woman 40 decades younger because he is going through a midlife crisis. It all depends. And if the wife caters to the man after 40 years of marriage and he still leaves it's his problem not hers. A cad is a cad.

Title: Re: Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are engaged III
Post by: sandy on March 08, 2018, 07:18:11 pm
Very easy to explain. During those times the wife had to put up and shut up to "please" the husband. The husband could have 20 mistresses but the wife had to turn a blind eye. My point is that marriage is for two people and the two involved should please each other and treat each other with mutual respect.If the husband treats the wife like dirt yet she has to do everything she can to satisfy him, that is an unequal relationship with many many problems. And it is sad if the wife is blamed because she did not do enough to please him, that borders on abuse. What about the man.The wife could climb Mt. Everest to please the husband but if he treats her like dirty nothing would really please him. It amounts to an emotionally abusive relationship. Charles was guided by two people with Edwardian values and look how that turned out!

Hopefully mutual love and respect will be a main ingredient of the H and M marriage. I thought marriage was for two people not a man needing to be "pleased."

"I don't believe in that expression: "happy wife, happy life." I say "a happy man will stay and never stray." So Megs better cater to Harry's every whim or else he will find someone else to make him happy, and then it'll be "like father, like son." 

Your saying she "better" do this or that sounds like SHE has to do all the work in the marriage.Marriage takes work from both parties not just the male. And yes, a man might say he is "made happy" if the wife turns a blind eye.

I do think that Harry loves Meg right now because she seems refreshing and exciting and very modern and innovative. The tabloid press (the area where the Windsors are currently relevant and powerful) is wild over this since Meg is biracial and the tabloid press just LOVE a racial angle. Meg's UN 'connections' make her look all international and her university degree makes her seem sooooo educated. I do not believe Harry's 'love' will last once he comes to the realization that his new wife is not going to put him in the running for UN secretary general and won't get him a seat at the top table of diplomatic discussions. After Meg has a few kids I am certain that she'll lose her figure and Harry will be stuck with a dumpy, powerless wife who will not launch him into the stratosphere he wants to be in.

I believe (and I have been rarely wrong) that Harry's love is very conditional and a certain list has to be checked off. Meg will be tough enough to be a mother, lover, chef, and I am sure she can pull off submissive and docile as well (skills honed as a Soho House Girl) and Harry doesn't see anything wrong with her. Charles is the same, it doesn't matter that Camilla trashed his entire marriage and jeopardized his ancestral inheritance, all that matters is that Camilla can be everything to him. I don't believe that Harry could find someone like Meg, since most women do not at all have the interest in being one thing or the other to a man at any given time. I think Meg fits Harry's aspirations and Edwardian outlook, although Harry is already part of the elite and we don't live in Edwardian times.

This is a match made in disaster.

Maybe Harry will be dumpy as he gets older.And not Meghan. I don't think Harry is really intelligent enough to want to be in the UN. I think also like his brother he is basically lazy. He can't just show up and be "decorative" there, he would have to be productive. And I don't think he has the drive and intelligence to even want this. I can't even imagine William trying to be relevant this way either. Meghan just has a small window of opportunity to have children. They may not have more than two.

After what happened to his mother maybe the Edwardian outlook is rather off putting to him. And I doubt he listened to Charles advice about women for obvious reasons.

Camilla does not live with Charles full time. Her being "all to him" may have soured somewhat. I think his true non negotiable is Fawcett.

Harry strikes me as the ambitious type and basically would want to be taken seriously. It doesn't mean he has to be intelligent to want more, but wants to basically be as respected as any other head of state. Look at how Charles is so determined to be a mover and shaker beyond farming and appearances.

As for Camilla, Camilla during her mistress years was the perfect combination of feminine traits that Charles was looking for, that is how she got the ring.


Title: Re: Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are engaged III
Post by: sandy on March 08, 2018, 08:53:52 pm
Camilla was intended to be the Mistress. I think she got the ring because Charles outed her, something never done before. He became more or less obligated and was confronted by her father. Charles also treated the royal wife like dirt. Past Kings visited the wife's bed and the mistress never had anything to say about anything and would never dare trash the wife. Camilla was super nervy and somehow got away with it (probably because the Queen just ignored the situation).

Harry never had a real history of speaking out, except for things like endangered species like his brother does. He now talks about being a feminist. It's not just intelligence it's a work ethic. I doubt Harry would do the work required of being a UN rep. And MEghan really has no influence. Harry would have to try to impress politicians to get there.

Camilla was not the perfect combination as wife because Charles did not choose her to produce legitimate heirs like he chose Diana.

I've never had a good feeling about Harry, I never really will. There's something about him that I can't entirely articulate yet, but I am certain that it'll come out. For some reason people persist in viewing Harry as some kind of innocent who is being dumped and played, but he's not and hasn't been an innocent for quite some time.


Title: Re: Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are engaged III
Post by: lesken on March 09, 2018, 02:48:26 pm
I don't disagree with you about Harry however he is a man. And he is now under a sexual spell and he could be genuinely in love too. She is a manipulative, ambitious woman who knows how to play men. He could totally be duped by her if she is duping him. Innocence has nothing to do with that. It's the way of the world and the battle of the sexes.


Title: Re: Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are engaged III
Post by: Ariel on March 09, 2018, 07:21:11 pm
It must be something more than just great sex. However experienced MM is - I don't think she has some mythical powers in bed. I also don't think that manipulation will be enough to tie him up. Even if he's dumb enough to fall for her poor me stories, Kate, Camilla, PC will surely see through her and pull as many breaks as possible.

In my humble opinion, she has gone the Stormy Daniels' route to trap him into marriage - if the sex doesn't work, then the manipulation and if thar doesn't work - threaths to release the screenshot and home video kraken or threaten to release it if things don't go her way.



Title: Re: Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are engaged III
Post by: lesken on March 09, 2018, 08:39:48 pm
Well no woman is probably truly that mystical and spell bounding in bed but some can tell what a man needs and fulfill it and that might make the man under the spell of the woman for a while. Strong chemistry can go very far and burn very quickly after it finishes its course. I have been there myself and watch other people in that same position,  mostly men. But there has to be more than that for Harry to marry her so I do agree that he's in love with her or very smitten if he's not in love. But I guess the two are the same really just different words. Love Takes Time to develop between two people. Falling in love happens instantaneously a lot of the times.

I was reading exerps from the Koo Stark book about Andrew. And I didn't realize how serious they were or that they were still good friends. And what amaze me was that the whole royal family including Diana seem to approve of her until the soft p*** stuff came out. I was actually shocked because she's 4 years older than Andrew not very connected and relatively poor compared to Meghan Markle. Get even back then the queen had her over for family events. So I guess the royal family stop being snobby a long time ago. And I do feel sorry that they broke up because Andrew probably would have been better off with her than Fergie. So how this relates to this thread is that I'm wondering if I'm completely wrong and that Meghan Markle really is somebody Harry should marry and they're not going to stand in the way of it this time. I don't know as I get older I I know less it seems.

Back in the 80's, people didn't get much of a chance to get to know Koo; she was labeled a p*rn actress and that was not true, but the accusation was enough. Koo wasn't previously married and thing is, the BRF is overcompensating over the way they used to be and making even bigger mistakes.

\Charles and Camilla are hardly figures of good taste. Camilla is the biggest manipulator of them all IMO. That's how she got where she is today. Kate also is not one to judge waiting 10 years doing little for that ring, giving death stares to other women. Camilla and Kate had their 'poor me' stories and especially Charles.

The trouble is that Camilla, Charles, and Kate are the last people to cast judgment. They would be a bunch of raging hypocrites if they did.

I don't think Meghan "trapped" Harry he's been around the block quite a few times and was not living in a cave for years totally naive. And he had no trouble extricating himself from other relationships.

Whatever’s really going on with them, it’s ruining the whole royal family because they look weak having this “celebrity” in their midst and Harry’s looking bizarre going between being her lapdog when he’s out in public with her as she uses the event to merch what she has on and looks board when she has to try and pay attention to the actual charity that’s been visited to Harry being Prince Harry who goes alone to his patronage’s and tries to act like MM never happened and he’s just being his down-to-earth charming self like he’ll be at the music festival.

Also, in my book there's no positive spin on manipulation.

Camilla has skills alright but that's for another thread. Kate is manipulative herself and Camilla super manipulative. Kate cares about Kate. Camilla puts herself first. These two are no role models especially Camilla IMO. Having them being judgmental (especially Camilla) is a sad joke to me. Prince Harry has been around the block a few times not some bumpkin who sees the "big city" for the first time and knows nothing. He is not "innocent" by any stretch of the imagination. Junor manages to find positive spin about Camilla's horrid behavior so anything is possible with spin.

This wedding is going to be a horrendous Marie Antoinette style tackfest. As much as I dislike Kate, at least it was her first wedding and at least she was marrying the future King. This is Markle's third marriage, they've barely been together for 2 years, and the chances of Harry taking the throne with all the Cambridge sprogs in the mix is very low. Meghan is living out her delusions of grandeur on taxpayer money and it needs to stop. She wouldn't look twice at Harry if he wasn't royalty. The BRF should have put their foot down and insisted that if Harry were to marry Meghan, he would have to give up his royal title and duties. She would be on the first plane back to Toronto.

Post by: sandy on March 10, 2018, 12:52:08 pm
There is no proof that there was a second marriage. None. It is put out on Tumblr and unfortunately it is believed by some.  Why would Meghan need to be seen all the time when on dates with Harry? William pretended he was not even seeing Kate and there were only blurry photos from time to time of their get togethers. Harry is a willing participant, Meghan can't "make" someone fall for her.  I would say any woman who was not a royal princess or aristo is accused of wanting the title instead of the man and not look at the royal if were "normal." Why would Harry have to be the sacrificial lamb giving up his titles to marry her. As you say he's not going to be KIng, no chance. So why would it matter? OTOH his father WILL be King and married as a divorced man a divorcee who helped break up the first marriage. And the father would be Defender of the Faith. Because Meghan is disliked by those like the TUmblr people, it does not mean everybody dislikes her and I don't believe there was an extra husband. It would be in the public domain. There would be no hiding an ex husband  he would be discovered by the grey men.


Title: Re: Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are engaged III
Post by: Ariel on March 10, 2018, 05:00:02 pm
There's nothing sacrificial in giving up a jet set life funded by the public because you're marrying a jet set wannabe babe. Meghan said that Harry is a feminist. Let's see if she'll like it to have a man who does not have public outings on which she can leach and merch. Let's see then how this happy couple will support themselves then - a talentless actress and a veteran, ex-pilot who besides nicely articulating the speeches that were written for him, I'm not really aware of any special or marketable skills.

I do believe the tumblr sites about the 2nd  ex-husband. I don't think that the grey men don't know about it too. If it goes out - this will reflect badly on brf and everyone will start asking themselves - what kind of taste does PH have?

What I find telling is how Kate posed in lingerie, but acted surprised that men came on to her (William in the Lifetime movie and Harry came onto her in the Hallmark movie). As if a male reaction like that isn't normal. Kate was never a shrinking flower and I am certain that she had had more than one lover by the time she got to William. She was after all the only female in the "Sallies Boys" group and wasn't averse to getting drunk.

I wonder if the movie will cover Meg's divorce. That would be an interesting angle to cover I'm sure.

She may have a few lines about it when she dates Harry. Kate had those parties where she wore the bunny ears and later played a "naughty nurse." I did not see any of the famous death stares of Kate in both films about her. There was a scene where she stalked out of William's birthday party when she was placed in the back of the room and Jecca sat with him.

Post by: Kuei Fei on March 11, 2018, 03:46:42 am
One thing it did unmask is how she did give a hostile stare to a couple other girls, but that was brief. It did show how she whined the entire time and it worked the victim angle. As for that scene where she stomped out of that party, to me that was a perfect example of her having a hiss-fit because William didn't ignore everyone in the room just to coddle her. He didn't owe her his entire attention and it's not like they had been dating forever; he was friends with Jecca and I got disgusted at how he kept acting like he owed her an apology. Most men would have kicked her out of the house while giving her the finger.

Did you notice Meghan Markle's fashion faux pas on her latest outing?
Quote
Prince Harry's fiancée appears to have forgotten to remove the temporary tacking stitch on the back of her coat; the white cross, which should have been cut, was highly visible against the navy wool. Tacking stitches are commonly used to hold a garment's vents in place – such as the pleats on a skirt or the back of a suit jacket – during shipping or while on display in store. But the stitching should be cut when worn.

Prince William 'could give Meghan Markle away if Palace refuses request for mum Doria Radlan to walk her down aisle'
Quote
Meghan Markle could end up being given away by her future brother-in-law Prince William, a new report claims.
The former actress has apparently asked for her mum Doria Radlan to walk her down the aisle when she marries Prince Harry on May 19.
However, the royals are said to be unsure about having a woman take on the traditionally male role.
And with Meghan reportedly not wanting to heap the task on her 'reclusive' father, Thomas Markle, Prince William is now being 'touted' as a viable option.

Prince Harry's 36-year-old fiancée spent two days in the Herefordshire countryside with Britain's elite special forces to train her to deal with the possibility of an attack.
The former Suits star was accompanied by her husband-to-be during the gruelling session, which one former SAS officer described as 'devised to frighten the life out of anyone'.
He told The Daily Express: 'Even though Meghan will have known the enemy was not real, I guarantee that she will have been petrified.
'That's why live ammo is used, so she knows what real gunfire sounds like should, God forbid, she ever be in a hostile situation.'
During the intense exercise, Meghan was reportedly kidnapped and 'treated like a hostage'.

^Yes.  The clearly feverish attempts to instill enthusiasm in this deflating balloon is not helping.  They’re trying too hard and people can smell it.  There will be coverage but gushing adoration, enduring excitement and charm?  Nonexistent.  

There’s an unsellable quality about the whole rigamarole.  Maybe the celebrity factor contributes, too.  They are not trending and derision or disinterest has set in about celebrities in general.  So out of touch.  Too insincere.

WK did not get two billion viewers and despite the hype, it was up to 26 million, not the other way around. Chances are with everything going on in the world, that Meg will in fact not at all get too many viewers and this is just another last hurrah for the tabloids. Now that the holy spud of the mythical Diana are married off, there is nothing to get hyped about. The eighties in nineties are over and frankly there is nothing there, nothing left. It feels like a relief, the delusion is ending and no one is under any illusion that William and Harry are going to accomplish anything spectacular. It's all over for the BRF and to be honest, the BRF took the public for a heck of a ride, keeping up the façade and stringing the public along, trying to create more mystery and hype while just acting out chaotically.

With this engagement and upcoming wedding, the façade is gone and people are facing the BRF for who they really are, not what the public hopes they will become. I do believe that with the solidifying union between the BRF and tabloid fantasy, the BRF will lose all respectable standing and this is Harry's swan song. After this, he'll have to work hard at clawing back all the respect and admiration he gained while he was first launching Invictus. He could have really ended up staying on top, but threw it away over a troubled woman who will be the nail in the PR coffin he's built for himself.

EDEN CONFIDENTIAL: Meghan Markle is tipped to choose her wedding dress from British label Ralph & Russo whose satin and lace gowns start at £30,000
Quote
Markle unfortunately underlines how idle, spoiled and extravagant the Royals really are. I have always been a Royalist but the idea of this woman in her £400,000 dress, waving at the bought-in plebs from her golden carriage, makes me sick. I don't want to pay for this random, grabby female to live a life of luxury...but then you question what use any of the Royals are. Even the Queen, who pledged to care for the people, has let the country sink into poverty and overcrowded misery while she moves between her many palaces and ignores the mess we are in.

It's hardly a surprise that she'll get an R&R dress. They already created a duchess wedding dress for their latest collection. The problem that I see is that Meghan is an overexposing plague for any brand so far: great promise of touchy feely with royalty, some sort of scandalous outfit so that people talk about it and yet - no good sales. The brand Birks can show for that - coming up with excuses as to how connected they are to royalty despite Meghan merching them constantly.

The DM is trying to make Meg 'happen' the same way they tried to make WK 'happen' during the engagement period. The DM and other tabloids are still trying to recreate the eighties and nineties, despite the fact that people are too busy to care. In this crappy economy, no one wants to get worked up about this dolt duo or WK. The BRF is not at all what it used to be and their drama is just exhausting and pointless.

It doesn't matter to me what the price tag is on this ridiculous wedding dress because it's going to be an expense that I don't sense anyone cheering on as worthwhile.  If she hasn't snagged the intense interest and adoration by now, with the heavy press push, it ain't gonna happen in a month or two.  It's a failed experiment so far.  It will breed discontent, an overarching sense of an outmoded and frivolous institution just simply showing off.  

There's a big difference, like it or not, between a first, blushing and giddy walk down the aisle by a beloved and cherished bride and this strident divorcee and her ginormous baggage of disjointed family drama that bring nothing to the table but trouble and bad press.  It's an absurdity and everyone who feels they have to contribute, however erroneous, is going to want to feel proud of their involvement.

And that simply isn't in evidence here.  It's mainly resentment and a inner mistrust that will carry the day.  It's quite a mess, really.

Plus, Harry continues to drag people out of the crowd in some I'll-advised desperate ploy to take to her which continues to emasculate him and turn him into a laughing stock.  What a turnoff.   And a bore.  The wrap coats are beyond played for instance as is the careless hairdos and golly-gee I'm in England silliness.  I am fortunate because the US has no financial stake in this fiasco and honestly don't care what happens to either of them.

I am so thankful of my forefathers that they created a country to get away from this mess of a family; Harry needs to face the fact that his fiancée is not liked and nothing is going to change that. I don't think he even knows what love is really. This campaign to get her to see Britain and be liked by the Britons is not going well and it truly never will.

Prince Harry is teaching Meghan to drive on the left and work a manual gearbox after years of using an automatic in Canada and the U.S

It's a brave man that tells a woman how to drive.

But Prince Harry is having to do just that to help Meghan Markle get to grips with motoring on the left side of the road.

With the help of her fiance and his police protection officers, the 36-year-old is also learning to drive a manual vehicle, after years of using an automatic in Canada and the US.

also be taught evasive driving techniques as part of a general programme of security training.

Insiders say Miss Markle is in the process of applying for a British provisional licence. Visitors to the UK from outside the EU are eligible to drive a small vehicle for up to 12 months from the time they first become resident, providing that they have a full, valid driving licence from their home country, which Meghan does.

If they wish to carry on driving in the UK after that, however, they need to get a British provisional driving licence and pass a theory and practical driving test.

The insider said Miss Markle has been seen brushing up on her skills inside the grounds at Kensington Palace, where she lives with Harry, 33, as she is said to be keen to drive herself around in the future.

Although all royalty protection vehicles are now automatics, it is important, say sources, that Miss Markle is able to drive a manual as well should she need to in an emergency.

No, but Harry has the title and access to unlimited amounts of money; of that I am certain she won't want to walk away.

Any bets that she'll be frustrated by his stupidity though over time? He's stupid and that is how she landed him, but an idiot for a husband can drive a woman out of her mind. Meg will likely get tired of his boozing and partying (neither will end) and I am sure that she'll feel frustrated that she will always be second place (walking behind him) and I am certain that she'll get tired of not being able to make her own living, will have to defer to Kate, and then of course, put up with always never having the top spot no matter how hard she works at charity.

Well for starters, MM looks good in navy and white. The ONLY outfit I ever liked on her was when she went to a polo match and wore a navy dress with a white blazer and it looked great. It was downhill after that. But I like this outfit and the hat in white was better than that mud color she wore at Christmas. Someone dressed her for this I bet. Second, the actors are far better looking than H and M. I still won't watch Lifetime junk except some thrillers. Third MM close up photo is ugly. She is just not that cute really. But beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Harry does seem to love her to me or at least really get along with her.  Do they normally allow fiancés to be part of these official events? Was that done with Kate? And if not why now? Is it because they don't want H to be alone and tagging W and K at these things? No one is giving her the boot when they are spending money on this wedding.  The fact someone like her is allowed in this family is saying something about them. It could be good or bad or both. Well we are stuck for awhile. But I noticed she gets no print on her own. It is always with Kate or someone or a group. Kate gets print alone all the time. The whole thing is ridiculous but more ridiculous because we waste our time writing about it. I am trying to figure out why I do.

^^It just seems to be a different time and what people deem acceptable. Or decisions are made and they just do what they want and eventually people will move on from the instant shock from the break in protocol.  :dontknow:

For example, Wallis Simpson as a divorcee wasn't allowed to marry a king during her time, but many years later Camilla is allowed to marry a future king as a divorcee and a mistress. Kate wasn't invited to Christmas with the Queen or a Commonwealth event as a fiancee, but Meghan is.

If Charles wants Camilla to be titled "Queen Camilla" and not "Princess Consort" when he becomes king, what will happen? Nothing. There will only be complaints from people For a brief moment and Charles won't care, life will go on.  :bye:

Just like no matter how we complain that Meghan is wrong for Harry, the wedding is still going to happen, he could care less what we think. Not until the British people storm the palace gates will the RF know that people are fed up. :laugh:

I think the Queen is very happy for Harry and wants his fiancee to be at his side at events that she shouldn't be at as a royal fiancee based on royal protocol. I bet Kate and Carole are scratching their heads.  :tehe:

Worse, Princess Margaret couldn't marry Townsend, despite how well Townsend fit in royal circles. A WWII veteran and equerry who understood protocol wasn't good enough and Margaret was crushed. I am disgusted that Camilla got that wedding ring and I am disgusted that Meghan Markle is getting airbrushed and protected; the Windsors aren't paying attention to the open dislike and people clearly don't want Meghan to be part of the BRF. For a family that relies solely on PR, Harry is being allowed to make the world's biggest mistake.

Post by: sandy on March 13, 2018, 01:11:30 pm
If Charles had not outed Camilla, he could have chosen someone else more suitable, not previously married or a widow. But Charles does what he wants. Plus he topped Edward VIII by being divorced himself and marrying a divorcee who was his mistress. In both Charles and Camilla's respective respective first marriages, small children were involved.

Meghan although she attends these royal functions is still fiancee with no royal titles or royal status. I guess this may be the way it is for future spouses to be.

I don't see any "open dislike" of Meghan just the remarks on Tumblr and the DM comments. Some comments though are scary as I had previously indicated.

The bar was lowered forever when Camilla was let in IMO. No turning back. I can see George and Charlotte not finding aristos to marry.

Inside Meghan's VERY low-key hen do: Bride-to-be was whisked away to Soho Farmhouse for a weekend of girlie chats and early nights (and is planning ANOTHER bridal shower before the big day)
Quote
Organising the weekend was Markus Anderson, a consultant at Soho House Group, according to a new report in OK! Magazine.
And for those who couldn't make the party, including her mother Doria, who lives in LA, and the heavily pregnant Duchess of Cambridge, there will reportedly be a second bridal shower taking place closer to the wedding itself.
It also holds fond memories for Meghan as she has previously stayed there with former Made In Chelsea star Millie Mackintosh and visited twice with fiance Harry, 33, during their whirlwind romance last year.
Crucially, Soho Farmhouse has a total ban on social media, making it the perfect getaway for a high-profile bride-to-be like Meghan.
Soho House declined to comment when previously contacted by MailOnline regarding Ms Markle's hen do. Kensington Palace has been contacted for comment.

It's hers (and Harry's) decision of course. Why can't the woman have some fun at a hen party?  She should not be condemned to sackcloth and ashes because she's divorced. The divorced members of the RF had receptions and perhaps pre wedding parties, 2nd marriage or no 2nd marriage.

Economic times are hard; people are not in a good mood and don't find such a lavish lifestyle and pampering exciting or enthralling, especially since they're paying through the nose to basically keep someone they don't like in luxury. The taxpayers are not sharing in the good times and are not enjoying any kind of security, especially job security. Many, too many, are homeless and unable to get their kids a chance at life and it's getting harder; meanwhile Harry is enjoying his fairy-tale, happily unaware that his people dislike and distrust her and don't want to pay for her. She's not wanted, but Harry determinedly shoves her down the throat of the nation. It's going to reach a breaking point, especially if Harry keeps up this pressure on the public to accept her with no preconditions or standards.

It's hers (and Harry's) decision of course. Why can't the woman have some fun at a hen party?  She should not be condemned to sackcloth and ashes because she's divorced. The divorced members of the RF had receptions and perhaps pre wedding parties, 2nd marriage or no 2nd marriage.

Yes, of course, it was Meggles' decision.   I'm pointing out that it was a silly decision.  A shower/hen party is for the new bride beginning a new life.   Megs has been married before.   She already has a toaster and wash cloths.  Going to a luxury spa to enact a blushing bride is ridiculous.

Did Anne have a hen party before she married Tim?   Did Camilla have a hen party before she married Charles?  I know that Charles forced a wedding and reception on everyone because he's a twit, but I don't think Camilla was entirely comfortable with the negativity of the event.

I do think that while a nice dinner would be a good way to celebrate, I am certain that a full spa treatment is not needed, especially since she's already had a hen do. I do not believe that Anne had some wild hen do. As for Camilla, for all we know she could have been celebrating by thanking the devil she sold her soul to.

I do believe that it's a sign of the times that Meg's lavishness is getting a negative reaction, no matter how much the press hypes it all up. You would think Harry would have seen this coming a mile away, but the dolt persists in thinking that Meg is entitled to adulation from the public just because he's Diana's sacred son. He has no business pushing people to hug her, or accept her, or take her to their hearts if they really don't want to. This engagement has been lauded by the press, hyped by the tabloids, but it isn't making any difference to a public that first thought she would be a fling and then ended up being hostile to the idea of an engagement.

^There’s another issue with but, yes, Harry thought everyone would have the same rose colored glasses on that he has and so it comes off as oversell.

But, I had to wait in line forever yesterday snd Sparkle’s kisser was on a mag cover.  Every single person looked at it and either ignored it or said, in essence, why did he have to pick an old divorced American big mouth with so many better to choose from.  It doesn’t impress nor sell.  It’s a big question mark not something that “makes sense”.  He comes off as undervalued.

It could be that no one wanted to marry him, Meg said yes, so he is now thinking that he's found the love of his life. I mean, he's not the catch beyond the title and it's a shame he chose not to better himself by cleaning up his life and not waiting until now to ask to be taken seriously.

Meghan is more like the exception to the rule because she's already aging and not in a good way. I'd be interested to see what's underneath that wig of hers and if there's any real hair left.

Pipa had one and I'm sure that M will find a way to convince Harry that he should show everyone how much more important she is than Pipa who didn't invite her to her wedding.

The DM is stirring up trouble as usual, IMO. How can they "know" what the wedding costs when it is very doubtful that the royals would give the DM copies of the receipts. The DM must think it the IRS or something. And the wedding is not over yet so all costs are not tallied.

This kind of lavish advertised showers and bachelorette parties are to be expected by someone like Meghan who has a bunch of money at her disposal now. How the taxpayers tolerate this expense for a wedding of a second son and a shady actress is beyond anything I can imagine. If it were here in the US I'd be out rioting. The royal family has enough money to pay for security and other expenses themselves without dipping into any of the taxpayers money. I don't know if the same kind of money is going to be allocated to Eugene if any. Again her grandmother has plenty to give her a nice big wedding as a gift without dipping into the taxpayers money. I just don't see how the people will keep tolerating this royal family in the future.


Title: Re: Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are engaged III
Post by: sandy on March 14, 2018, 02:11:53 pm
No costs were disclosed. I don't think Eugenie will get a "cheap" wedding to say the least.

The Queen's favorite is said to be Andrew and I doubt she'd make him keep a "budget".

Royal security is always paid for by taxpayers no matter what and the usual excuse made is that taxpayers don't pay but it comes from Charles "Duchy" money. Or so it is claimed.

I think that a curb should be put on All royal weddings expenses and excessive spending by royals.


Title: Re: Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are engaged III
Post by: Kuei Fei on March 14, 2018, 02:35:43 pm
I fantasize about a full audit being done on all the spending done by the royals; all the details published for public viewing and I wager that would trigger some headline making riots at the hands of the people. Really, it's clear that the BRF is not maintaining the main palace, Buck House and they don't need three hundred million pounds skimmed from the taxpayers to live well and entertain well. They don't pay their staff anything so it's not like staff is being paid lavishly.

Title: Re: Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are engaged III
Post by: Kuei Fei on March 14, 2018, 03:26:41 pm
This isn't her money being spent and her marriage does nothing for the nation. There is no way she could afford a new lavish wardrobe, lavish engagement dress, and two parties at a lavish location on her savings.

I wish a full audit could be done for this wedding and the public could see a breakdown of the costs involved. I am certain that it would provide good reading. This engagement is so over the top lavish (just for the Hen do and additional bridal shower) and it's obvious that Meg isn't spending her own money on all of this.

I know that because those are the ones that have most copies on the stands. Whereas people are still buying Jennifer Aniston for some reason. MM so far it's just not that popular.

^^ It's because she doesn't have star quality. She's piggy backing Harry's and dragging him into her mud in the process. Also, she's so plastic that her shenanigans are neither interesting nor original. Her new s can't top Trump's or Melania's or Putin's or Teresa May's.

As for the two brides to be: one is a princess and grand-daughter of the currently 39th longest reigning monarch in history and the other one is a nobody who went on a spa weekends and blabbed about it. Huge difference. QE is supposed to shower her granddaughter with gifts for the wedding, as for the other bride - someone needs to put a cap on her spending imho. QE, PC or the UK are not her sugar daddy. This is not her first wedding and yes - the prince should look nice, should have some extras but the bride, not having this wedding as her maiden voyage towards the altar - I'm sorry but the bride does not deserve two showers, dress for half a mil, Spencer's tiara. Who does she think she is?  :sigh:

She could not have made her way into it without Harry's cooperation. Harry is of royal blood but is marrying a commoner. It should be noted that the last genuine princess to marry in was back in 1934. I don't think Harry could find a royal or aristo to marry.  He is still the Queen's grandson and she would shower gifts on him and his wife.

The spa for a weekend, the Spencer tiara, the half million pound wedding dress (how could the Fail know the price when they don't even know which designer is going to be used?) is all tabloid speculation. Neither Meghan, Harry or KP have made any statements about it. The Soho House article in fact read like a paid article by...Soho House.

Not everyone who has an unfavourable story written about them in the DM, or in any tabloid, plants it themselves. Why would they? What's more, not everyone believes every word the DM prints. That rag has a huge and justifiable reputation for printing fairy stories as fact.

Both Eugenie and Harry are grandchildren of Britain's longest reigning monarch. Both are marrying commoners. Eugenie will have a nice wedding at St George's. Her father will pay for some of it. However, the security bill will be paid by the taxpayers. Just like every other wedding. 

Harry will have a nice wedding at St George's, and his father, he, the bride and the Queen will pay for some of it. However, taxpayers will cover the cost of security. Just like every other Royal wedding.

Harry's will be the bigger wedding because he is one of the two sons of the heir to the throne. He is higher in the succession than Eugenie, whose father is a younger son. Those are just the facts, can't be changed.

I don't know. Just like the rest here I speculate on what's really happening. My guess is, DM and EA know where PH and she will be before it's in the cc and what she wears the minute she shows up for the cameras, details about the first spa weekend with friends, the second spa weekend, the wedding designer, the Spenser tiara, etc.etc. - the press knows from the horse's mouth. From MM herself, from JM or from MM's PR agency. It's not coming from the palace for sure because unlike M's wedding details - the preparations for Eug's wedding are in full steam but we know nothing about it.

Post by: Rosella on March 15, 2018, 01:04:25 pm
We know nothing about Eugenie's wedding arrangements because (a) it is more than six months away, and (b) the York family is not popular in Britain. The only news that the tabloids print about the Yorks generally are Fergie's blunders and faux pas, Andrew's arrogant behaviour on occasions, Beatrice's holidays and occasional photos of the York sisters at parties or charity events.

The tabloids and magazines generally aren't interested in the Yorks. They aren't high enough in the succession to matter, and I don't think I've ever seen a newspaper with either sister on the front page, (except perhaps Eugenie's engagement announcement) or on the covers of any magazines. The wedding won't be televised, so there won't be viewers and any press stories will be in October.

By the time her second wedding comes, there should be some but it will die down unless she proves herself interesting and not so tacky. And those that say it is Harry's first wedding and should be a big deal forget the wedding is about the bride not the groom. That is why there are reality shows called bridezilla not groomzilla. The bride gives the wedding in Western world not the groom. Although for second weddings and older couples that is not so true anymore. People care about the bridal gown not the tux. Although, the princes have some nice showy uniforms they tend to wear at their first weddings. This affair is showy and out because MM is leaking things to make people care. PH is the new PA and he is following in his footsteps and will put out to pasture as well when the time comes. Oh then he'll go to Hollywood with his third wife.

I don’t consider this a royal wedding when the bride-to-be is of a dubious nature who’s as fake and uncaring. The whole of the royal family’s affected by being associated with her. The letterhead of the announcement looks cheap to me. MM’s name doesn’t match the engagement announcement so is this approval legal? What’s MM’s legal name; Rachel MM or just MM? Immigration and the IRS will be looking at this because the names don’t match. All I see is weird smoke and mirrors, wrong letterheads or cheap looking ones when announcements are made about this farce and MM looking more worse for wear when she’s in public; like she’s slowly unraveling. The next article should be about the petition to not have public funds wasted on this mess. It’s already published in the Australian papers, so it should be a matter of time before it hits the U.K. and beyond.

The name in the official announcement didn't have to be her full legal name, if going by that then anything about "prince Harry" wouldn't be legal/ official either, as a "prince" by that name doesn't exist.

The document Liz now signed is legal, which is why H's and M's full (legal) names are listed.

What is truly interesting though, is the difference how Liz referred to Kate back then and now to Meghan. Meghan by name only and Kate as "trusty and well-beloved"..... Even though that was a stretch too, as she was hardly trusty and well-beloved, and I daresay the Winds (& Liz) know M by now much better than they knew Kate at this stage (2 or so months before marriage).

And will H's consent form look like this or will it remain so uninspiring?

^waity’s full legal name was listed in the engagement announcement whereas MM wasn’t. When things are formal, Harry’s real legal name’s listed. IMO, this is another red flag for immigration because of the names not matching up. Again, Harry’s engaged to MM but has the queen’s consent to marry Rachel MM. The government would need to see proof that this is the same person as she’d need a viable visa to live in the IK. This’ll take time as well as her having to sort out her tax return/file it with proof of gifts, income, trips taken from 2017.
One thing’s for sure, the royal family’s getting an earful from the public like never before.

^ I don't see it that way, because then Kate's announcement wouldn't be legal either, as it said "Catherine Middleton" and not her full name, "Catherine Elizabeth Middleton". Meg's says "Meghan Markle", the legal consent form states her full name "Rachel Meghan Markle", as did Kate's.
Also the announcement refers in the headline to "prince Henry", legally correct, and in the main text "prince Harry", legally incorrect and also a faux-pas in style, as a person should be referred to throughout one piece in the same manner.

The announcement of the engagement has no legal bearing, the consent form does, and the consent form lists everyone's full names and titles.

I think immigration would not quibble about the Queen using her first name. I know of people who use their middle name and indicate that's how they would like to be addressed. As long as the legal given  name appears on legal documents such as a Passport or Drivers License, and tax returns, I see no reason why there would be a "red flag."  Legally, Meghan would be required to put her given names on a legal document. I doubt she left out her first name.


Title: Re: Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are engaged III
Post by: windsor2 on March 15, 2018, 05:16:09 pm
^^makes sense, however, Kate’s the less formal name than Catherine, but still the same name. Rachel’s not a less formal name to Meghan, so that’s why I have issue with her name. Why not be consistent and use that during the engagement announcement? She’s a foreigner and would be subject to scrutiny by immigration and the US tax department, so again regarding the name, IMO.
Anyway, at the end of the day, if this isn’t some farce like it appears to be and this wretched woman’s indeed Harry’s real chosen bride  :o :-X :ick: then he’s a great liar and a fake himself as he’s gotten rid of users who’ve done much less than her. Harry did say during the Christmas interview that he didn’t want to spoil the surprise, so with so much oddness about this whole affair, I expect that there’s something more to come.
This farce has been used to distract and to change the royal family’s image as inclusive and accepting as her ethnicity comes into play at times, but it’s also raised for me the old nagging feeling that Harry’s taking the crap to cover up for someone close to him that has a lot to lose if he were caught cheating with MM on his wife.  :cookie:  That would be an epic scandal that would’ve halted the Saudi deal, Commonwealth talks and Brexit deals as that would’ve been the focus.

I don't know about other cities in the U.S., but in her hometown, Meghan hasn't had a solo cover since her engagement on People's. And that might have been with Harry. She is on covers with other people now, mostly Kate and given all the mags I see, she is not in many now. Don't know what other places are doing. Kate still gets solo covers all the time, the most recent this week. It may change, but I doubt it. She's not that cute or likeable looking. She is okay but not much more.

This is the formal consent, but about a week before the wedding (if it follows Will and Kate's schedule) a very beautiful formal charter is issued from the Privy Council, on parchment with the Queen's signature on it.

Post by: windsor2 on March 15, 2018, 09:19:07 pm
^i totally agree. It’s not about conspiracy theories for me, it’s just that things don’t add up. There’s nothing normal about the courtship, engagement and this consent. I get a bit annoyed listening to Harry when he’s actually using his position to help others; when he says he wants the national to be proud of his choice of bride and can take on his public life. So what’s with him choosing this chance that he seemed to have scraped off the bathroom floor of Soho House? How’s Harry going to really explain her to the younger people that he wants to be future leaders when he can’t seem to get a nice decent clean living honest woman to be his wife? How can he explain her to his various charities? Since day one, proper protocol’s not been followed and reports of her doing things that no other bride to be was allowed to do, anything can still happen like this farce coming to an end just as quickly as it began. The best thing now is to sit back and watch this facade unravel as it seems that her parents mightn’t be allowed into the U.K., hence the article’s about Wills having to give MM away. There’s also the visa and tax issues that would have to be resolved prior to any wedding. IMO, that’s going to fail since she doesn’t have receipts to prove her lies about this bizarre relationship during 2017 that she’d need for her taxes and wedding preparation receipts for immigration; that a marriage will actually take place on May 19.
The odd thing is that stuff has been printed about her and people see what she’s really about so now the floodgates should really fly open and further unsavory things should be seeping out now. I do see a set up for failure now.
^you know how the saying goes, “it ain’t over until it’s over”, so yeah. Someone can object to this travesty at the wedding. I respect everyone’ opinion but I’m just curious why you’re so keen on this tacky woman as you’ve been defending her for quite a while.

I have followed Harry since he was 19. I think he's fantastic and he continues to be as far as I'm concerned. (He's old enough to be my son by the way, and I'm married, so I'm not in love with the guy.)

Therefore, I enjoy seeing him happy. And he is happy with Meghan, whether her detractors like it or not. From the photo op to yesterday when he talked about taking her to Colchester Garrison. By word and deed he's shown he's happy.

I choose to believe that she loves Harry and he loves her. And there is no other reason why he would marry her would he?
 
And fourthly I *despise*, loathe and despise people on Twitter/Tumblr who make up complete and utter lies about people and spread hatred. As this news today shows they lie to themselves (deluded) and to others. And in the end only show themselves up for what they are.

If it is an unhappy marriage, if Meghan makes Harry miserable, then I will definitely change my mind about her. As of now, however, I am happy for them and wish them all the best in their future lives together.

^i totally agree. It’s not about conspiracy theories for me, it’s just that things don’t add up. There’s nothing normal about the courtship, engagement and this consent. I get a bit annoyed listening to Harry when he’s actually using his position to help others; when he says he wants the national to be proud of his choice of bride and can take on his public life. So what’s with him choosing this chance that he seemed to have scraped off the bathroom floor of Soho House? How’s Harry going to really explain her to the younger people that he wants to be future leaders when he can’t seem to get a nice decent clean living honest woman to be his wife? How can he explain her to his various charities? Since day one, proper protocol’s not been followed and reports of her doing things that no other bride to be was allowed to do, anything can still happen like this farce coming to an end just as quickly as it began. The best thing now is to sit back and watch this facade unravel as it seems that her parents mightn’t be allowed into the U.K., hence the article’s about Wills having to give MM away. There’s also the visa and tax issues that would have to be resolved prior to any wedding. IMO, that’s going to fail since she doesn’t have receipts to prove her lies about this bizarre relationship during 2017 that she’d need for her taxes and wedding preparation receipts for immigration; that a marriage will actually take place on May 19.
The odd thing is that stuff has been printed about her and people see what she’s really about so now the floodgates should really fly open and further unsavory things should be seeping out now. I do see a set up for failure now.
^you know how the saying goes, “it ain’t over until it’s over”, so yeah. Someone can object to this travesty at the wedding. I respect everyone’ opinion but I’m just curious why you’re so keen on this tacky woman as you’ve been defending her for quite a while.

There's nothing normal mainly since Harry isn't behaving like a normal member of the House of Windsor. He's clearly running wild and out of control again and it's clear that HM wasn't consulted and I am certain that HM was hoping that things would be broken off. Notice how Harry's KP office declared the engagement first, THEN the other royal offices followed suit.

^^thanks for the reply. As I said, I try to respect everyone’s opinion but since Harry’s been linked to MM, he’s been looking a big haggard and losing his hair quickly. He seems to be ok when she’s not around though; like the light in his eyes are back. People marry for all sorts of reasons other than love. IMO, I don’t see anything good about this union at all. If someone told me that Harry would be marrying a divorced foreign older woman who uses people and her body to climb the social ladder, I’d say that he’d be stark raving mad.  :cookie:
^then he should’ve been shut down and told to wait a while before marrying her. Why allow a senior member of the royal family to run amok and consent to it? It makes no sense at all since he doesn’t know her and she’s just doing what she wants regarding merchandising during public events and taking up her own agenda. It’s one thing for Harry to run wild in Vegas as that was a one and done thing but it’s quite another to have a Soho House strumpet as a future wife. He’s very close to the throne, in fact, he’s still 3rd in line since Waity’s kids are very young. It’s hard for me not to believe that this will be humiliating for MM somehow as I don’t believe that a marriage will actually take place. No, I’m not in denial. People are comparing the engagement and the privy council’s announcements but still haven’t seen that MM’s 2 are different. Smoke and mirrors, lies and deceit it what I see regarding Harry and MM.

The BRF won't put a stop to this because their only method of survival is PR; the press owns them lock, stock, and barrel and if HM had countermanded the announcement saying that she hadn't been informed and Harry hadn't asked permission, it would have turned into the issue of the racist palace blocking one of Diana's Sacred Sons from his one true love. The mainstream media wants their fairytale and her disgusting past won't be allowed to ruin this politically correct romance. I don't think the palace was ever going to break their united front and basically say that Harry is acting without permission from his Sovereign.

As for the engagement, I don't see it breaking unless something very drastic happens. It would take a lot more than it's taking now since Meg's past is obviously seedy, but the fairytale is being embraced and reinforced and nothing is going to be allowed to spoil it. It could be that Harry is in fact basically determinedly taking the road to complete self-destruction and for some reason no one is stopping him. Harry is clearly a coward and does not want to cut ties and does not want to grow up and be a great prince. He is pleasure loving and as much a liar to the public as the rest of his family is. He does not care about his nation, never has.

I think a lot of people are seeing this and it's an ugly realization. Harry is clearly too unwilling to be a man and be a prince and be an adult. He wants someone who will take care of him, he has it. If he cared about his country and his family and his position, I am certain that he wouldn't even hang out at the Soho Club. If he goes through with the wedding (an almost inevitable occurrence) I am certain that it'll be all over for the House of Windsor. Harry and William were the two great hopes and now basically they've been instrumental in the destruction of the monarchy.

There's no question this is a disaster but we have to accept it for now. I just hope that the not having her on a lot of magazine covers continues as I don't like to be annoyed while waiting in line for groceries.  I don't care what anyone says, she is just not that attractive. But then neither is Kardashian to me. Or that silly married with 8 Kate that used to get on the cover of People every other month. Thank God she left the scene. I know this is off topic but I must admit that I would have thought that Sparkles would have gotten more coverage than Jennifer Aniston has recently. Aniston is over done now. But she seems to be more interesting to the press here than Sparkles. Even Harry got on a tabloid cover recently. That hasn't happened since Vegas. Point is, MM will never be true star material even with a BRF title.

THe royals don't let spouses run away with inheritances. It won't happen IMO and they are not even married yet so I don't get the talk of divorce now.. I don't see her as a narcissist. I still don't get why the woman is demonized and Harry is made to look like a country bumpkin coming to the "big city" for the first time and a shady lady "takes advantage." Harry has had many women and has been around the block a few times. He is not shy about dumping women. I hope it works out.  He fully participated in the relationship and was the one that had to propose. He was never "forced" to do anything. Settlements were made to divorced spouses and no way would Meghan get all the properties and leave Harry with no money. It would never happen. Some "charges" against Meghan have never been proven. And it depends on what people want to believe about her.

The fuss about celebrities divorcing usually does not last long. I think Kate and Meghan are not all that compelling to read about. Just my thoughts.

Megs and Kate are a new breed of women who will not give up their positions as royal wives no matter how crappy the royal princes behave towards them, not when they worked so hard to get them. Unless it's domestic abuse, then divorce by all means!  :nervous:

On the contrary, their marriages could be really happy and strong and the princes would never misbehave and Megs and Kate would never have to consider divorcing.

Due to the dislike of Megs, some are hoping for doom and gloom with her marriage to Harry and I can't think like that, I worry about negativity coming my way by being mean or hating someone.  :tehe: I neither like or dislike Megs. What I don't like is being told to like someone because of who they are marrying and you can't criticize. Criticism isn't always a bad thing, just an observation and I think Megs is an overt attention seeker.

What mind boggles me to this day is how Harry didn't drop Megs like a bad habit when she told the press about her dating him, especially since Harry is always whining about privacy.  :sly:

I think Meghan has been in British newspapers and magazines, where it really counts. Here in Australia and NZ she's been on quite a few covers. The Australian Women's Weekly has she and Harry on the cover now, with the caption 'Everything just perfect'.

Soon after the announcement that it would be St George's there was a discussion between Cepe Smith, an ex journo and several Royal correspondents on her Twitter Page  about whether there would be enough room in the media centre at Windsor for the international media, especially US TV stations, and they thought the centre will have to expand.

Stormy is totally different! For one thing the man was already married. MEghan is getting married  to Harry not resorting to any of that sort of thing. Harry had those women in the room when he went naked. One of the Vegas women probably would be more likely to have "visuals" or one of the many women he slept with. If Harry did not even want Meghan after he slept with her and she had to resort to "blackmail" she would have been history a long time ago. IMO.

 You have a good point there @Rosella however Americans don't care about her as much. I think that's because we can see through her or realize she's not that great. I haven't heard anybody comment that she is great if they even commented at all. People were saying Kate was great which used to bug me.   But Meghan Markle gets no such recommendation. Perhaps it's just because she's an American she's not special to us. I mean now anyone can marry a royal and that takes a lot of the magic away from it.

There were people who disliked Kate. And there are people who like Meghan. I don't think Tumblr opinions and DM represent what everyone thinks about her. Some just adore to watch Royal Weddings no matter who the couple is. When you think about it, it has been about 80 years since a royal princess married into the family. I think those days are gone forever.  Meghan won't be an "American" forever, she will be a British citizen. And for centuries non-British Princesses married into the family. From Denmark, Spain, Germany, France so the royals have a lot of DNA from other parts of the world.

Well they married their royal relatives ever since the George's have been on the throne.  You cannot take the American out of a 36 year old woman who was not an anglophile to begin with. Take a look at her old interviews by the British she knew nothing about the country or the customs. Sure she will be trained but you still can't take the American out of her

The Southern California persona is like a breath of fresh air in England at least that's what I found when I went there in my younger days. But that's a double-edged sword. Because when you're from Los Angeles in Southern California and are in  show business, it  is very cut-throat so you become a schemer to get ahead. So she's both by how she was raised. The bouncy greeting everybody with hi I'm Megan is very typical for  women out here. The rest of the royal women are much more formal. So in a lot of ways she is a breath of fresh air. But she's also an ambitious schemer. I guess there are those everywhere. But I must say I love your picture of Prince Charles and you're posting names.

If she had implants, it was a very good job as they are not overdone for her body. Obviously, it is some topless beach somewhere, so I don't know that it matters that much. I wonder how that person got ahold of her cell pics. And what was that all about with the man doll next to her in a towel and her making faces? She is a fun loving gal and parties hard like SoCal girls do, so that must be part of the charm for fun loving, hard partier PH.

‘I won’t sign a prenup’ says Harry: Prince rejects chance to safeguard £30million fortune as he is determined his marriage ‘will work

Prince Harry always has been something of a romantic, publicly lamenting his difficulties in finding lasting love.

Now he’s engaged to Meghan Markle, the 33-year-old has made the most dramatic sign of his devotion: I hear that Harry has rejected signing a prenuptial agreement to safeguard his estimated £30 million fortune.

‘There was never any question in Harry’s mind that he would sign a prenup,’ one of his friends tells me. ‘He’s determined that his marriage will be a lasting one, so there’s no need for him to sign anything.’

The BRF wouldn't call it a pre-nup, but I've got no doubt whatsoever that, after Charles's big payout in the 1990s and the aftermath of the Fergie/Andrew divorce, that lawyers for the royal family were called in before Will and Kate's engagement announcement, or that they have done the same with Harry/Meghan. After all, we know that senior Royal brides sign agreements that they cannot take any children out of the country permanently if a marriage goes pear shaped and there are NDAs in place even for girlfriends. Yet lawyers aren't permitted to lock up any assets? I don't think so!

Fergie is divorced yet she gets to live on royal's payroll, got a 12 mil swiss chalet gifted as hush money and to support PA publicly, uses her Dutchess title whenever she can and that includes endorsing products. I'm sure M has done her homework for what she can gain in a divorce from H.

I'm also sure that the nude pics will not make a rift between the two of them because they are taken from her own phone and unless H can prove that she is involved in the leaking, she'll be the biggest victim on the planet, "feeling violated", blaming the special services and the royal family - wedging yet another rift between PH and his family, cementing his juvenile stubbornness to not see MM for who and what she really is.

I don't know how the laws in England work however here in the United States, at least in California and I imagine it's the same elsewhere, your inherited money and the money you have made prior to the marriage is your money not the spouses money. It may very well be the same there. And if the money is kept separately it is easy to distinguish it. Diana was working for the royal family and Charles throughout her marriage and she would be entitled to the earnings from the duchy for her efforts. And I think that's why she got the settlement she did. If they get divorce I doubt Megan is going to get anything from what Harry brings into this marriage. But after the marriage if he comingals and they get earnings from their combined efforts in work or Investments she will be entitled to get a settlement with or without a prenup. And it's true that the lawyers have probably already set that up.

^ That’s what I was thinking. Well, actually the first thought I thought was this isn’t true. I think this is just more made up fairytale crap. The second was that there’s no need to because she wouldn’t get any. All of Harry’s money and inheritance came before the marriage not during so she won’t get anything. And unlike William, Harry won’t get a duchy. If she doesn’t make good and get pregnant, she definitely won’t be getting much. No need to sign a prenup.

Of course she will. My issue with Meghan's mixed race is that a Hanoverian prince marries a 100% peruvian latina that is drop dead gorgeous and no one is blowing this as the biggest accomplishment in latin america's history because it is not.

Woopie praised her for her mixed race and in my opinion mixed race seems to be her only accomplishment in life and that's just sad. No role model here.

Compared to the peruvian princess Meghan is also not educated enough, not pretty enough, not accomplished enough. One must wonder what did Prince Harry see in her.

Why would his income matter. Can he be charged with tax fraud in England. I can see where Meghan Markle would want to know so she can get it. But other than her getting it would it matter to English people what his income is if he pays his taxes.

I don’t know tax laws in England but the IRS will consider their income as joint income so what he makes, they make, so can be taxed/inspected jointly.

Just a technical point here YM. (I'm asking as I don't know the ins and outs of the laws).

 Is it not the case that if MM gains a British passport, the IRS won't be able to look at her finances once she gets that British passport?

Pre-passport, then she's 'fair game' as we all are to the IRS (or Inland Revenue as it is called in the UK), but not once she is a British subject.

So basically all her earnings up to that point will be subject to scrutiny.

My point is, why would Harry be involved and have his income scrutinised by the IRS?

In the UK all married spouses are taxed as individuals on their own income and whether that individual's income is earned or received form their spouse.


Thanks posters and YM, of course.  :thankyou:

Most of them that I've seen are faked and doctored. There's a video of her that isn't racy at all, some photos of her adjusting the timer on beach pictures taken with girlfriends on a topless beach in Greece, (you can see beach, sea and friend.) I've been on topless beaches myself, nothing wrong with it. The Fail wouldn't risk being sued by putting hacked pictures from Meghan's Cloud on their front page.

The short answer is: No.  Having a dual passport doesn’t mean anything to her US status with the IRS or State of California until she gives it up and becomes a full British citizen.  Even then, she will still have monies earned in the US so the IRS can do whatever it likes in any tax situation.

And, once she is married, and still a US citizen or earning monies in the US, the tentacles of the IRS are well within their rights to look at any spousal income or expenditures, ie, Harry and the Firm.  That’s the facts of US tax law.

^^ Because KP stated that she intended to take British citizenship. It wasn't mentioned that she would retain her US one. When Harry and she go to Commonwealth countries representing the Head of State of GB it will be much better to have royals that are 100% British, not those who could have split allegiances. Plus there is the added complication of paying US tax, and the BRF are a family that represent Britain, not any other country. She's going to be a member of that family and live there for the rest of her life, so why not be British?

I guess I see Rosella's point that the British royal family would want her to be completely British in representing Britain. I mean I don't know that Arnold Schwarzenegger gave up his Austrian citizenship when he became a US citizen and the governor of California. I don't see that this marriage necessarily is going to last forever so I would be cautious about giving up my u.s. citizenship if I were her if she ever would come back here. However if it means paying more money to the IRS I would give it up. I don't know how the IRS taxes British actors that make American movies like Colin Firth, etc or the rock stars, etc. Her residuals in the United States are not going to be that much that she has to worry about the IRS. As far as her topless pictures go, I don't think it's a big deal these days. It's not how she looks it's how she acts in the bedroom that will matter to Harry. If it ends up she's cheating the IRS what can they do about it? They can confiscate her property and they can try and arrest her and charge her crime but I doubt that's going to happen. She will get some sort of diplomatic immunity. It might hurt her chances for accepting an Academy Award invitation.

So I guess would be  better to give up her citizenship. I'm sure if things don't work out and she wants to come back to the United States to live she will find a way just not be a citizen anymore. Anyway she can go marry a American billionaire and become one again.

The smart set’s talking about . . .Mary Fellowes
Quote
During her post-engagement television interview, Meghan Markle told the BBC’s Mishal Husain that she ‘didn’t know much’ about Prince Harry before they met on a ‘blind date’.
Now, however, one of Harry’s cousins has set tongues wagging by revealing that Meghan befriended her in 2015.
Fashionista Mary Fellowes, 39, whose aunt, Lady Jane, was Princess Diana’s sister, tells me: ‘I styled Meghan three years ago for a magazine photoshoot and I interviewed her, too.’
Fashionista Mary Fellowes, 39, whose aunt, Lady Jane, was Princess Diana’s sister   +3
Fashionista Mary Fellowes, 39, whose aunt, Lady Jane, was Princess Diana’s sister
The Suits star, 36, was introduced to Harry by an unnamed mutual pal the following year.
Mary (pictured) explains: ‘We arranged the shoot after I met her through mutual friends in London.
‘We became friends and then I just thought she was so incredible I had to interview her.’
The stylist, whose uncle, Sir Robert Fellowes, was the Queen’s private secretary, gushes of Meghan: ‘She was incredibly impressive because she described how her activism and social conscience had started at a very young age.
‘She had a lot of conviction and cared about those causes.’
Mary, who has worked for Vogue and dressed U.S. actresses Liv Tyler, Claire Danes and Amy Adams, is not only a useful friend to Meghan. She is also helpful to Princesses Beatrice and Eugenie, who reportedly turned to her for style tips after they were pilloried for their fashion gaffes.

The lying cow claimed she didn't know much about Harry, but yet it seems like she was trying to brefriend his relatives and friends for years to try and meet him.
Waity, Harry and Wills have naked pictures that were made public, however, unlike MM, they didn't pose for them or sign off on them like MM did in the movie where she's naked; the pitures that are in the printed edition of the DM. I can't find the post now, but i remeber posting that any nudes that MM has would kill her relationship with Harry ans the royal family and that she knows that. When the topless pictures leaked, KP/MM  claimed that they were fake. Then the video got released, KP had no further comment. This makes KP look bad now because the DM has pictures that can't be denied that's her and that she signed off on them to be released per the inclusion in the movie.
^she's not worth the trouble regarding having the IRS in the royal family's business. Besides, she's got to get her visa sorted out. It's all in the name and her name doesn't match ant of the engagement announcement and the odd privy council's approval.  :cookie:

^ What a great tidbit!!!!  I knew she had manipulated meeting him and studied what turns him on. She was working all angles to get to his circle and advertising herself as this great champion of causes to his friends and relatives to get his attention eventually. And that is what she did on the first date, talk about their causes which got him interested above the physical. I bet she knew he was looking for a champion of causes to help him and she fit the sex kitten bill plus the social conscious one. And yes they hit it off. But I bet she just manipulates everything with him and she does it well. I have got to give her credit. Too bad lying comes with that master manipulator quality. OMG the BRF is in for one. And there is a part of me that is glad about it. Well Miss Fellowes seemed very taken with her.

Wow. Just wow. If the marriage is called off will MM have to pay back the money she has spent to date or will it take the British people to rise in arms for that to happen?  What a mess this has all become! :o

^^thanks.  :BFF:  If she wasn' such a strumpet, she wouldn't have to worry about tumblr blogs. I think the LSA is another tumblr blog. IMO, I still believe that MM made herself known in a bad way that attracted the attention of MI5 as she was stalking Harry and other high profile people in the UK. She's been known to use the race card and become a big pain big mouth when she feel like she's not getting what she wants, and the royal family needed to see how they'd be relevant in post Brexit and why some commonwealth contries wanted to leave. IMO, because the whole relationship with Harry seemed bizzare from day one and made even more so with the engagement interview and everything after that, she's the perfect person to get people to reveal who they feel about the royal family and what they want from them. MM's easy to dismiss because of her shady character. I think now that the pictures are being released, the boot has officially been given to MM. She's a dangerous bigmouth who's being exposed so that she wouldn't be able to make money off of the royals. There's gossip that she's still on social media and does comment on articles in the DM as well as on sites that have blind items about her. She should be ruined; in trouble with the IRS and immigration now. Unfortunately though, its not over until there's no question that she's done and dusted and not attached to the royal family. Right now, Harry's getting really bashed in the DM and beyond. His charities have to be affected by this, so the sooner MM's booted, the quicker he can rebound as well as the royal family on a whole. IMO, it was a necessity to get people talking about their epectations of the royal family and showing that they're inclusive; hense the MM seemingly being fast tracked and embrassed by the royal family. Now when they visit the commonwealth countries, especially the carribean and African ones, they won't get people protesting their presence. I hope this makes sense.   :cookie:
^they could go to a registry office and have the funds earmared for the security go towards the homeless and military vets. The petition to have no public funds used for the wedding has gotten over 20,000 signatures. Don't be surprised if they're people petitioning in from to Buckingham Palace with plaques demadnding that the money wasted on this wedding should go towards other things; vets, homeless, NHS, etc.

On those tumblrs the most interesting part is the anons - they are really good at digging up stuff about Meghan. The most notable anons there are Wise One, Winkie and Lily.

IMO Meghan needs to be dropped but elegantly. If Harry calls off the wedding because of some pics or the lies and the stalking she has done he will look even bigger fool and a bigot because he has chosen her and now he's turning back at her at the first whiff of trouble which no woman wants to hear in a man. At the same time if he marries her he'll be literally the biggest *fool* in the world and he won't be able to blame anyone else but himself for whatever comes to him.

The show may be filmed in Canada but the production and hiring is in California so all earned income is in US dollars not Canadian.  With the rate of exchange alone it would be stupid to set up a Canadian co vs US.  Anyway, even if she earned money in BFE, she is still a US citizen and taxed as such.  Hopefully, this is clear by now.  

Until she completely denounces her US citizenship and cuts all income from any residuals or companies in the US, the IRS is involved completely.

She's too nasty, fake and deceitful for Harry to be truly involved in the long run with her. A short fling/one night stand/drunk hookup would make sense though. :cookie:

Ariel, excellent post because she needs to go feeling like she's being true to herself; being a feminist and wanting her freedom as an American would expect. The DM printing movie stills would be a way to let her kow that the royal family won't be able to protect the real dirt surfacing online and beyond. She knows about the topless photos and video on that website. Her best bet is to indeed to dump Harry now and move on. There should be now big scandal that she'll be able to play the victim. I don't know if i sound like a conspiracy person, but since MM's een on the scene, the issue of race and the monarchy has been brought up ans I know that has to be addressed in a real manor to know where the monarchy stands and what they should be doing to appease all people now. For Harry to be taking this big hit, to me it makes sense that is because the cause is bigger than him. Would Anrew be seated next to her at the Commonwealth service if this was Harry shoving his tart in his family's face?

Harry seems to be called upon more than Wills to represent the queen and has seen with her in a relaxed manner as she went along with the IG promotion with the Obamas and he said during an interview for the IG that the queen's his boss. So knowing that, there'd be no question of MM being part of his life; as his wife.
She allegedly sold the topless pictures so Harry can swoop in and rotect her. Since she's used manipulation before and uses and discards people at will, it wouldn't surprise me if she did indeed do this. She cried wolf before and got that idiot statement released.

Also, to add to the tax issue and dual citizenship... Some countries require of their citizens to pay tax as long as they are citizens regardless where the money was earned, where you work or when you were hired. That means, that a US citizen may have grown up in e.g. France, did their education there, and works there, the US will still come and call for your earned money to be taxed to the US. As I understand it, the US is one such country that does this. Ex London Mayor and current Foreign secretary Boris Johnson once held dual US & UK citizenship, because he was born to UK parents in the US (anyone born in the US automatically has a right to US citizenship), and the US demanded he pay taxes to the US -  even though he is English, grew up with Engl parents in England, English education, work etc. He renounced his US citizenship to not be taxed anymore.

The UK used to do this, which is why Liz Taylor renounced her UK citizenship in favour of her US. She was dual too, only exact opposite to Boris - born to US parents in the UK but grew up in US, educated there, worked there etc.

Many countries only tax you on income earned in their country, Germany works this way as example. As either expat or dual citizen, they don't tax you unless your money was earned in Germany.

If Meg were a citizen of another country, she'd be luckier and wouldn't need to renounce. I guess Canada is like Germany in that regard, and I suspect that's why Autumn is a dual citizen. Additionally, Canada is part of the crown and the commonwealth, so some other rules yet still.

So Meghan would be better off renouncing her US citizenship in due time, and I bet the Winds will be relieved to no end when she does and suggest (i.e. demand) she does. If they don't make her skip all lines and create extra rules for her, then she'll be able to do this in 5-6 years.

Mary and Harry share cousins in common and undoubtedly see each other at those family functions. So she is not a stranger to him. No one expects Aunts and Uncles to be in one's social circle of friends but they are involved in your life if you have a closer family. Diana's sibs are all he has left of her apart from his brother so I bet he sees them and their family from time to time. So don't under evaluate their importance in his life. Mary has dressed the royal princesses as well. So she knows that group. Maybe not as well as his school friends but enough for someone like MM to get info when trying to meet him. She wormed her way into his circles while in London because that is how she met him. The point is whoever tried to defend her in her engagement interview with her nonsense of "I didn't know much about him. All I wanted to know is he a good person." is full of it. She knew enough of what he likes and dislikes before she met him without having to go online which she undoubtedly did before her date if not well before her date. She tries  to make herself innocent by lying. People know she full of it with some of her junk. Others don't care that she is. But no one thinks she didn't know who he was when she met him.

I'd add to that that she was bewitching his circle with sob stories of her humanitarianism while she was claiming to be foodie in Canada. Not that there's anything wrong to have more than one calling in the world but the problem is that her humanitarian work has started around the time she started making connections with people in Harry's circle. The catholic school assignments don't count because they are compulsory and if we knew how much of her globe trotting as a humanitarian (two trips only - one to Rwanda and one to India) is part of her ex-network's covert ways to promote the show then these should be excluded too because it's a work thing and she didn't lift a finger to go out of her way to actually help people.

Harry and Meghan are fans, too! Royal expert claims couple binge-watched The Crown while the actress was settling into her new life in the UK after leaving Toronto to join her Prince
Quote
According to a new book entitled Prince Harry: Life, Loss and Love, by author and royal expert Katie Nicholl, the royal and his bride-to-be Meghan Markle binge-watched the series together when Meghan first came to live with her prince at his cottage in the grounds of Kensington Palace.

Search engine this . Harry sucking a male nipples on a robust party in Botswana. There you will see pics if Harry wearing nipple cups, pics of him sucking another blokes nips and pics of him grabbing a handful from a girl. Taken ten years ago . So why the rush to hide the Markle pics? Dirty Harry has had pics taken for years that get all over the press. And none of them are fake of phtoshopped. He's picked a partner he can perhaps play dirty with. Tna5s why she's got him hooked. She knows all the tricks. It will come out some day .

I would not call Meghan's photos "inappropriate." Let's say they were not doctored or airbrushed, it was her private time. And she did not go to Playboy Magazine and pose for an "explicit" photo spread. It was invasion of privacy.  There is a matter of whether she wanted to show "everything" and have it out there. Another if she did this when she was unaware of cameras. There have been lawsuits by celebrities/famous people who have had nude photos released that way.
That said, being outside that way and having a tip off to the paparazzi can cause this. Caution in future is advised.

Prince Harry: Does Meghan Markle’s fiance do THIS to eyebrows? Ginger royal’s SHOCK secret


Prince Harry, 33, is engaged to Meghan Markle, 36, and an expert believes the actress has influenced his eyebrows routine.

The ginger royal has naturally pale, fine eyebrows, which blend in with his pale skin – but his brows look much darker in recent photos.

This was noticeable yesterday when Prince Harry was said to raise his eyebrows at Meghan following a performance by Liam Payne.

Jamie Long, elite stylist at HD Brows, believes Harry has a treatment done to his eyebrows in order to change his appearance, which is particularly common among women.

Prince Harry: Meghan Markle's fiance is believed to have changed his eyebrows appearance
He believes the royal has used a combination of shaping and colouring to give his brows a new, striking appearance.

“When it comes to Prince Harry’s beauty regime, he has kept things to a minimum. The changes that he has made to his eyebrows have gone fairly unnoticed, however when you compare recent pictures to those from a few years there is a difference.”

“The prince has kept his brows in a similar shape, but has opted for a slight tidy up using the tweezers, creating a cleaner but less obvious result than other hair removal techniques such as waxing or threading.”

“His brow style is very natural and textured, but the area in-between the brows and low on the lid have been tidied up to achieve a well-groomed look.”

^^ Do you mean the nude photos? They are still from a video she made, posing with hands, while the 36 years old instagram guru was trying to figure out how to press the delayed picture button and instead was making a video. In order for her to claim that she was hacked she need to file a complaint and I bet that just like with Toronto - the police will file it under celebrity diva false claims.

It was cluelessness. Much like Harry left a computer open where someone heard him make racist comments by checking out the computer. Stupid is as stupid does. I think the jury is out on how much the photos were doctored. There are topless beaches that are perfectly legal and nude beaches. But bringing cameras to them is asking for trouble.

The KP denials and the press not printing the pictures fits into the narrative that Harry wants to protect her from the press. IMO, it’s bs because the press has been releasing all of her “hot girl/sexual situations” acting roles and indicating that she’s a Soho House girl.

She wasn't fully nude. I understand in Europe there are many topless beaches. I never did it when I was there and wore bikinis. But on some levels we Americans are more prudish believe it or not. Anyway, in this day and age, I don't think filming yourself and friends doing Goddess topless beach dances are anything but youth and free spiritedness. Her lies are what bothers me and her manipulations of Harry. Yet he allows it and probably likes it. So I don't know. I wish he had better taste in a bride. But he doesn't.  By the way, she is the type to have her making love on film with her hubby or boyfriends. Maybe those videos are destroyed now or the exes are well paid off or just gentlemen. Who knows, there may be some of her and Harry around. But she's not stripping at nightclubs or doing anything that outrageous that can be proved so far. It is just now we see the royal woman unclothed... or the ones that marry in. I feel sorry for Koo Stark.

Her business is failing and won’t be helped still being linked to MM.
Harry suing over the pictures are laughable. That must be the fictional harry from the movie that the Express article deemed distasteful, would do as that Harry’s supposed to be a sappy romantic chap.
What’s smart is that the picture scandal’s breaking in the US gossip site where the mainstream press will circulate them and the DM will have to talk about them. People on the DM are saying their comments about the pictures have disappeared which is odd because I’ve seen some that have gotten through.

Meghan never stripped at nightclubs or anything like that

I am American too. And that is my take on it. There are nude beaches people don't dress like Pilgrims. IT depends on the person--there are all sorts of people in AMerica. It is not one culture anymore. ANd people have different outlooks on life. Before the seventies there were the "swinging sixties".

Why is it "strange?" I'm just stating that she was not a professional stripper. And it is True that She and Harry stripped in front of their friends  (each did this and not at same party). Maybe they have that in common.

I am also putting the photos in perspective. She did not pose for Playboy. Her phone was hacked. And I still think the photo was doctored.

I can say the same thing: Don't tell me about MY fellow Americans. It takes all kinds to make a country.
I am expressing doubt at some of the rumors on Tumblr which I freely admit I am skeptical about.

I think she should be given a chance to see how she does as a royal. If she does well, good for her.

It takes two to make a marriage. And things may come back to bite him--or her--but they should be committed to each other all the way. As I said before both need to work at the marriage and the wedding is a big event but after it's over, it's going to take work for both of them on that marriage. She also should not think in terms of "quitting" and both should be serious about causes they choose and both should not choose the fun things. They need to earn their keep.

The Queen has no interest in Wimbledon, hardly been, in spite of it being one of her patronages for years. Charles and Camilla have not visited. The Duke of Kent is President of the All England Tennis Club (which oversees Wimbledon) so he's in the stands and his Duchess used to hand out the winning cups, charger etc. I've never seen Andrew there, or the Wessexes. Kate is Patron of the Club and she and Pippa and James have been to Wimbledon many times, as have Mike and Carole. I don't think tennis is Harry's bag or William's. William may have been once or twice but that would be it.

Camilla goes to Wimbledon at least once if not twice most years as does Sophie but not as an official engagement and so not in the CC. The Duke of Kent, The Duchess of Gloucester and the Duchess of Cambridge (and their spouses if they accompany them) do have their attendance recorded but not the other royals.

I went some years ago and there was a very large turnout of royals there the day I went - William, Kate, Sophie, the Gloucester, the Micheals of Kent and the Duke of Kent with Princess Alexandra but in the CC the next day only the Duke of Kent was listed as attending.

Beatrice also often makes an appearance and Andrew on occasions.

The Queen has many patronages but attends to very few events to do with them ever.

Yeah, Wimbledon is the place to be seen if you are a posh toff or some entertainer aspiring for that set. Many go just to get their pap pic out there.
Wimbledon has turnt into a "who's watching the game/ who's who and whom have you seen" rather than about the game itself. The other tennis turniers are about the tennis; Wimbledon is these days not so much.
In short: Meghan will most certainly go. Kate of course as always too. M will for sure attend also a Williams sister's game.

Just like how Ascot is no longer about the horses, but about getting drunk and dressing in a cheap fascinator and looking like death warmed over. A dress code even had to be instituted so people would dress decently and not show off their privates (thankfully clad in underwear).

Also a bit ridiculous to go before the wedding, they'll already have a honeymoon just after the wedding. Makes them look even worse in their spendthrift ways, just like the ever holidaying Cambs. Off to Monaco, off skiing (you can't tell me any of them will miss out on going to the slopes!), off to Greece and then off on their honeymoon, soon after it'll be summer when no one's home anyway, topped with that fugly over-expensive Marchesa dress, really good PR you guys, well done H&M!

I’ve read a while ago on the blogs that MM won’t be able to stop things about her past from coming out. She tried before with the statement but regarding her pictures, the first set and video she’s clearly in charge and did it herself. The pictures should hit the gossip magazines this week. Just like Wallis Simpson before her, the American press will open the floodgates that the British press won’t be able to deny that MM’s a nasty piece of work.
Wendy Williams, the gossip show host, talked about the pictures.

Felix and his little Tumblr mates, (including 'insider' Winkie, who isn't) after months of denying that the romance was even real, and stating confidently that the 'fake' romance (according to them) had broken up at least half a dozen times, are now scrambling at straws, any straws, any!!!

The choice of wedding venue, fixed, Archbishop presiding, fixed, cake maker, fixed. Queen's permission, fixed. Less than eight weeks to go now. What's going to be these people's excuse on the wedding day, for their pile upon pile of lies, excuses, misinformation and pointless hatred?
 
British newspapers and other legitimate media outlets aren't going to publish, faked and photoshopped and hacked photographs that haven't come from legitimate sources. Simple! They'd get sued, and rightfully so.

I don't like her at all but the pics of her topless aren't that bad. If she had a porn website, that would  one thing. This is just some dumb frolicking with friends at a topless beach. This won't stop the wedding. If there is stuff out there, now would be the time. Even if more stuff gets released, the closer to the wedding the less likely it will effect it. I would say too much money has been spent already to just call it off. So the Yank Hussey will succeed in crossing the Royal line. Too bad really. But on the bright side, this will be fun to watch. She undoubtedly is going to screw up.

It takes two and Harry is capable of screwing up all by himself.. All of this I think will have the opposite effect, the Tumblr stories would make Harry more protective and they would grow closer rather  than apart. Just my take on it.

The tumblr blogs shouldn't be taken as gospel truth and insider info, but they're a good place to look for links to articles and videos and such as what American gossip show host Wendy Williams says about the pictures.

Whichever side anyone's on, I think that the universally we can see something about this whole MM and Harry thing, way back from the very begining has been pretty strange and not how any royal romance has been conducted before; not this level of a circus complete with possible more silacious pictures to be released any day now of the so called bride to be and a video that's she's supposedly staring in by herself.  :ick:

@HRHOlya. I dictated the post so it came out wrong. I meant to say I didn't read anything but scathing comments about Meghan Markle and that Greek trip or anything else for that matter. But it's all the DM I'm reading so I don't know if that's anybody else is sediment in the Press.  I haven't really gone on the Tumblr or any of those other things I just really stay on this website. But I do follow the Articles and find most of the comments from whatever the magazines are or online things are are not good about Meghan Markle. Anyways I'm glad to see other people think like I do.

^Love Wendy. She calls it as it is. MM must be fuming - even a nude video (that she did not make by accident judgong by her actressing hands) does not make her interesting. At this rate a tape with Harry will be dismissed as bad acting on her side if not fake.

MM's site was as boring as Gwyneth Paltrow's but now that evidence of scheming as far back as 2015 is surfacing it will be interesting to see if MM was not flying to UK to schmooze herself into Harry's life but also to build a case for calling UK her home so that she can escape IRS if  things get tough. (By the way, I don't think that IRS will go against her - not now and not in the future as long as they can tap into BRF's finances through her, she'll be their Troyan horse ans BRF is looking at either the biggest breach in their financial affairs or the biggest shakedown in history imho)

Prince Harry and Meghan may be heading to Dublin on a 'mini-moon' shortly after their wedding at Windsor Castle in May.

I've actually had the same thought a while ago. What I'm sure of though is that the IRS is for sure rubbing their hands in anticipation and will go from what they uncover.

^^ PR bs to make them seem relatable ("poor things will have to work before the actual honeymoon") and endear them to the Irish public. Then they make it sound so humble and small like any John and Jane could do the same holiday, until the actual resort is leaked and turns out a simple "camping" trip was actually a luxurious glamping holiday that not everyone can afford. :bored:

You know, a mini-moon is code speak in my honest view as in "we're going to fit in as much traveling as possible" and they will not be doing duties for quite some time. Of that I am certain. They don't need all these vacations and they don't need to fit in mini-breaks. As for KP, it's time HM shut down their little 'court of KP' and get them reined in. William and Harry don't need their own court with their own sycophants and it's just another pointless expenditure.

I am relying to a bunch of posts. Yes she has him sexually by the balls. She has always dressed like a sex kitten previously when you look at interviews and photos. The one of her and that London actress on the bikes when she being introduced to PH is telling. The other girl looked nice in a simple spring casual dress and she had a spring dress with a "come get me look". Most of her and PH are with her in the sexy torn jeans and matching top. She films herself topless and dancing. And she played the older interviews like a typical female ditz. Don't know about the UN speech. So for being for woman's rights, she sure liked to sex kitten it up which is what brings us down again in the professional world.  Just like "Don't find your voice, use it," (act without thinking) she is a horrible spokesperson or policy person for Woman's Rights. She should keep her mouth shut.

Don't know the IRS wants to go after the BRF. Don't know what they would do or not with this situation if she gives up her citizenship.

Of course they are going to vacation and party hard while they can.

I am sure the BRF will get her visa straightened up or PH will start hanging out in L.A. or wherever she waits. (God help us here)

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are shaping up to start a family, according to royal watchers


Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are eager to start a family — no ifs, ands or buts about it.

A source with ties to Britain’s royal family says Markle has been whipping Harry into shape ahead of their May 19 wedding with plans to have children sooner than later.

“It’s no secret among friends that they want to start a family immediately,” says that insider.

Not only has Markle gotten the 33-year-old Prince to give up his Marlboro Lights, she also talked him into cutting down on alcohol consumption, we’re told.

“One of the reasons she got him to quit smoking is because smoking affects sperm production,” our insider said. That source estimates Harry has dropped “around 10 pounds” since he and Markle announced their engagement in late November. We’re told that Harry has consulted with nutritionist Gabriela Peacock and he’s also been working with a personal trainer at KX Gym, where memberships cost up to $1,000 a month.

“He’s been spotted there at 7 a.m. almost every day,” we’re told. “He’s getting his soldier body back.”

Harry spent 10 years in the military, including two tours in Afghanistan.

Our insider says Markle has always kept herself in great shape and likes cooking healthy meals for the two of them — sometimes while they watch “The Crown,” the saga about Harry’s grandmother, Queen Elizabeth. Despite her commitment to fitness, Markle is 36, so our spy says the sooner the better if she and Harry plan to follow in the footsteps of the other young royals in the House of Windsor.

“They have said they’d like to have three kids, like (Prince) William and (Duchess) Kate,” we’re told.

Our insider says that talk of Harry and Markle wanting kids has been the talk of the royals since they announced four months ago they were tying the knot.

“There were rumors that the wedding happened so fast because she’s pregnant, but she’s not,” we’re told.

Talk of royal babies hit the internet on Tuesday after “Harry: Life, Loss and Love” author Katie Nicholl told “Entertainment Tonight” that her sources tell her the prince is “keen to start a family, soon after the royal wedding.”

Quote
So when will Meghan get pregnant? Will she have an old-fashioned honeymoon baby, or will they wait six months or so? Despite what Nicholl says, I really doubt that Harry is pressuring Meghan to start a family very quickly and think he wants to make sure Meghan is adjusting well and all of that. That being said, I think that Meghan knows that her fertility window is closing (don’t @ me) and she knows that she should probably get knocked up in the first year of marriage. I expect a pregnancy announcement by… I don’t know. Thanksgiving?

I forgot in my above post to mention I was commenting on the fact Harry is inviting three X's to his wedding. That is a lot of x's and two were serious relationships. It's too hard to say what those kids are going to look like because of Megan's biracial genes. Because her dad was blonde blue-eyed at least when he was young and her mother is also mixed, they could come out looking like Diana or the Earl of Spencer or her father side. If the mothers black genes dominate they're going to look ethnic like MM and get her afro hair.  Or they can be some sort of mix. I do predict they're going to have big noses and need nose surgery.  I just hope they don't come out looking like Charles and Anne which is not likely. I had biracial friends who's one sister was blonde blue-eyed and the other one was ethnic like Megan and they both had wavy hair. They were one quarter black and they look like sisters just different colors.

I totally buy that Meggles is trying to be all friendsie with the royals, especially Will and Kate.  She's an American, after all.  But Kate isn't under any obligation to hang out with her.   She might be afraid of Meggles' friends telling stories about her to the press.   And . . . does Meggles HAVE any friends?   Didn't she dump them all?

Meghan can try all she wants, the sad reality for her is while the Royal Family is trying to put on a good face, they will never really accept her as one of their own.  Nor will any of the courtiers or aristocrats due to her motives (which are suspect), being a divorcee and an American.  The sad fact is that Meghan may get her wish one day and be just like Diana, she will be stuck in an old stuffy Palace alone with no friends, family members or allies. Meghan should make nice with her family in the States and stop alienating them because one day they may be all she has left.

As for Kate, I agree.  I do not say this lightly given my dislike of Kate over the years but she is under no obligation to hang out with Meghan nor should Meghan's cronies use the press as a weapon against Kate.  I think with Meghan and her cronies it is just a matter of jealously and perhaps a bit of resentment. Kate is married to the second in line to the throne, while Meghan will be marrying the soon to be sixth in line to the throne.  Meghan will never hold the same rank or position of importance as Kate.  Meghan's children with Harry will never hold the same rank or be considered as important as George, Charlotte and the new baby.  That is another reality check Meghan will have to deal with eventually.  What she is ultimately looking for with this marriage, she will not achieve married to the sixth in line.

I'm surprised that there has not been a pregnancy announcement already.  When I first heard that Harry and Meghan were engaged, I immediately figured that Harry had knocked her up until it came out that he was simply settling.  My guess is that Meghan will probably get pregnant quickly not so much due to fertility issues but to ensure she ties Harry to her forever either through marriage or child support and alimony payments.  For Harry's sake and the sake of any future children they may have I hope Meghan is sterile.

You know, that is what is sad; I've experienced the kind of tolerance where I am suffered, not accepted (mainly in high school) and I think Kate is tolerated, but not accepted and that is what will eat away at Meg. No matter how good she is at charity, or speeches, or manners, the BRF and public will never accept her as one of their own. Look at how Kate is clearly isolated socially except from her family and look how weary she seems, despite her privileged life. Even William seems like he's being nice to her, but secretly wishes she would walk away and get a life of her own instead of sticking around him all the time.

I do believe that when we read about how Kate goes to William for advice and suggestions, I secretly believed that it must annoy William that he has to baby a fully grown, very experienced woman. Meg had better get used to tolerance and forget about acceptance by anyone around her; even Harry might end up tiring of her and even if she has a few dozen kids, it's not going to make anything change. She'll be an eternal guest among the BRF/aristocrats/public and just like Kate, it'll eat away at her. I give it a few years and then she'll end up withered and bitter and miserable with Harry blowing through one bed after another.

What will Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s children look like?

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are set to wed on May 19 this year, and people are pretty excited about the wedding.

But after they tie the knot, will we see some kids on the way soon? Here's what they could look like.

This is creepy. Whenever the media does this the kids look like the ones in that horror film Village of the Damned.

‘This technique is called intense eye grazing, it would normally be used as an active listening signal.
‘It is used to flatter the person speaking. You see a lot of it in America but it’s not a particularly strong trait in the UK. This kind of eye contact is at risk of putting someone off their stride while they are speaking, she is also doing it at very close quarters.'
‘When you look at him compared to her, he is just wearing a jacket and a jumper it is not the most glamorous look but here there is this leading Hollywood actress who is stunning and gazing up at him, you can see his cheeks rounding slightly and he’s probably blushing.  :tehe: :tehe:
‘The big thing about Meghan is she has always been quite dominant in the duo, she has always been more at home in front of the cameras and in interview situations than Harry.
‘But now we are seeing quite submissive body language. To the waiting audience, this makes him look very heroic, like a besotted fan.

To me he looked like he was going through the motions when he had to sea with her and loving talking to other people. She looked stressed out, thing and possibly releaved that her topless photos didn't make it to the UK press. and the wedding's still on the table. Now that the UK tour's over, to me the press has shifted by printing more sarcastic articles like these.
I like the fact that Harry's painted as being weak and submissive to her because that means she's hanging her own self by herself. Things will be interesting this week.  8) :cookie:

Every time I try to like this woman something comes out and I just cannot. She has no fashion or hair sense most of the time. Her new fake gaze look is so annoying because she never used to do this. Why now? Is she so caught up with all the attention, she really loves him for what he has given. Maybe. But she is playing to an audience and changes her acting around which makes it look so annoying. Just be real like a California should. Or I forgot we are not real. Nuts and Fruits so I've been told my whole life by non Californians.

Harry looks blank to me. But then again, these could just be the photos in that instant. There may be others where he looks happy and she is not gazing. Now I must say, I like her fake eyelashes and wonder where she gets them done. She is an attractive woman now with the nose surgery and whatever she adds to her face but she is not a really pretty woman. But then neither was Chelsey. This is what he likes and he gets to choose. I will never understand it but chemistry is not understandable always.

I think HM and PP are too old to care. If this is what is settling PH down, so be it. At least he is temporarily settled before they die. I think he is such a wild card that they wanted something to settle him and ground him. So she is the medicine. And given that he is kind of a kook at times, he may need a manipulative Californian kook as well. Just what it is.

No decent woman would want to take Harry onto her hands and basically be forced to be a mother to an overgrown dolt. As for propping Harry up, I am certain that she is none of the sort. She's right at his low level and frankly I do believe that he's way too hyped  up for his vaunted 'status.' I don't care that he served two tours in the Middle East, he has slacked off and gone to seed. He's no longer what he used to be and isn't what he had the potential to be.

And Kensington Palace has been told that the 73-year-old will be flying in for the ceremony from Mexico, where he lives in a sleepy retirement community.
‘He’s very excited about it,’ said the friend: ‘He’s very close to her [Meghan] and he’s very happy. All the pressure has been hard on him and he’s just trying to stay out of the limelight.’
The woman also said Mr Markle does not know what he will wear on the big day adding: ‘The Royal Family controls that. We’re not sure.’
She declined to be named – but, after being pictured sharing a pizza with Mr Markle at a local restaurant last week, denied that she was romantically involved with Harry’s future father-in-law.

@Sandy  Just because there is not an arrest warrant yet, doesn't mean there isn't an investigation. And not all people get extradited from Mexico. I work in the criminal justice system and one has to apply for extradition. It is expensive and not always granted on every crime. He most likely is hiding from creditors since he went bankrupt. And that doesn't mean he can't go to a wedding guarded by the BRF. Creditors won't bother him at that. Enough. My point is looking at him, knowing his background and he was in a blue collar union in the entertainment field, his children have rap sheets, etc. he is white trash. I don't know about the mother's family. But they seem subdued and most likely lower/middle or middle class.  Does this matter? I guess not. I have to be honest. I would not be happy if my son was with a person like this regardless of her success in Suits. Now as far as this birthday party goes....they were kids playing a game in a  very modest neighborhood. I don't take much stock of that except she knew exactly who PH was and what she would get from him when they were set up. She is such a phony baloney. The BRF is becoming pathetic for what they once stood for. And maybe it is good to get rid of that sense of entitlement by birth idea the British have. They need to grow up too.


Title: Re: Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are engaged III
Post by: Ariel on March 25, 2018, 05:07:35 pm
Lesken, you beat me to it. I'll also add - no one really retires in Mexico, especially after declaring bankruptcy, unless they are waiting for the statute of limitations on their debts to expire so that their debt is written off and the creditors can't touch them... unless there's more to the hiding than just debt. My money is that there's more.

As for the video - I wouldn't dismiss an 8 years old acting all vain, self-absorbed and conceited at someone else's party. NPDs don't wake up narcs at 36. They are groomed at an early age and we can see how far back she was already in need of a psychologist or a better parent. I'd bet that to her mom she was the golden child, being the only one, and Samantha, as the child of the other woman, the first woman who never stopped meddling, was the scapegoat - the person who is never going to do anything right or be as good as the golden child. There's no accident that Samantha went for acting and boom - competitive Meghan went for acting too. I also think that Doria is silent but he silent waters are deepest.

IMO this video shows not only that she knew and was focused on becoming a queen - not a princess, like we all did, but a queen... maybe she keeps the magic mirror in her official visits so that she can ask who's fairest of them all throughout the short visits. The video shows that she was with NPD symptoms, imo, even before she started to search for a career in Hollywood. That said - she can't blame it on Hollywood for who she is as a person. Enlightening video. Also good for neck massage from shaking head.

The thing is he's not one's average Joe he's going to be father in law of a royal prince. The authorities could make an example of him since if he committed a crime he would be not some average Joe but the future father in law of Harry. Bankruptcies are not a crime, lawyers work with people who declare bankruptcy. The credit score takes a big hit and the person has to re-establish himself or herself. Business owners and consumer declare bankruptcy--legally. I don't know much about the man but I would not call him "white trash." Children of unsuccessful people make good. Should they be labeled because of what their parents did? Unless Meghan and her father held up banks or did something blatant, she is not "guilty by association." I don't see why she is "phony". Harry as I said is a willing participant in the relationship. I know people who wanted to be actors and got good jobs behind the scenes, stagehands, set designers. I think it is an accomplishment for someone to succeed in acting.  She was not in a smash hit TV show, she's no TV legend like Mary Tyler Moore or Carol Burnett. She got a part in a TV show. I say good for her. I agree with you about the BRF though. It is not the same as it was where the royals were matched with princes and princesses from other Royal HOuses or married aristos.

@ Sandy  You have eyes. Look at him. He looks trash, his children from his first marriage have rap sheets. He is in hiding. I didn't say he was a criminal hiding. I said he is hiding from creditors in all likelihood. You don't think creditors put hits out on people? He is not an average man, he is hiding from something. An average man's children don't have rap sheets. Yes they also don't marry princes. I don't know what your point is. If you think he is some well off upstanding citizen, think again. Maybe once he was.  I am just calling it like I see it. I would not want to spend holidays with the likes of him or his family. You may be far more tolerant than I am. Certainly the BRF is more tolerant than I am. But then again, I deal with criminals and have to dish out punishment. So I have no tolerance for trashy things. Perhaps I will become more tolerant when I retire.

I look at a lot of people. I don't know many of them. I don't judge them based on looks. There is such a thing as filing for bankruptcy--legally. I have no way of knowing what is going on with him. None. But as I said, his domicile was discovered by the media. He did not close the door and lock it pulling down curtains. He talked to them. If he were in any trouble, do you honestly think he'd s stay there. Once the address was uncovered, he would have been gone with the wind within hours. He would not want to be a sitting duck. Just offering this point of view.I am not sure what your point is. I plainly said that there is such thing as filing legally for bankruptcy. There are lawyers who advertise this service all the time. I am not going to spend holidays with him, I don't know the man.  There is no proof he committed a crime. If the creditors were out to get him, he'd have been dead within hours of the media pouncing on him. IMO anyway.

Ariel’s right.  US citizens don’t fully retire in Mexico unless they give up their US status which is unheard of.  The main reason people live there is to avoid something usually involving tax or money issues.  There’s no extradition with Mexico.  You bring your cash down, open a bank account in Tijuana, say, and no issues with the IRS or creditors.  Only murder will be extradited and that’s not even a for sure to Mexican authorities unless you commit a crime there and show up on a database.  Very lax.

There are now these lawyers who advertise they will reduce the amount that someone owes the IRS. And works with the IRS on behalf of clients.  And help avoid the threats of the IRS taking possession of property and paychecks. Bankruptcy attorneys are also abundant. Unless someone gets hold of Meghan's father's tax returns and credit reports, it is a matter of speculation what the financial issues are.


Title: Re: Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are engaged III
Post by: lesken on March 26, 2018, 12:52:20 am
Here is my point. His being there is for a reason that is unsavory. His children are unsavory including MM. He looks unsavory. I see that element every day and I know it. I also know other types. I know the difference because I have to.  That is my point. Sandy you like to defend Meghan and her unsavory family at every turn. Because you like to and feel compelled to for some reason. Maybe because she is the first Yankette to be accepted in the BRF.  She is phony to me because she is caught in lies. Her statements are ridiculous on things. She is trying to be a goody two shoes in England when she is anything but one. She dumps people right and left. I don't like her for that. I don't care that she shows her titties to the world. Be free and do it as far as I'm concerned. I don't like her character. Now her mother seems okay to me. I know nothing about her family. But she is out there helping people and uplifting them with her yoga practice. So I like her. Her father? YUK


Title: Re: Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are engaged III
Post by: sandy on March 26, 2018, 01:14:20 am
I don't think the worst of them, I don't know them. I'm hoping for the best with Meghan and unless I hear she did something really vile, I am not passing judgment. That is hardly the same as "defending her" or "liking" to defend her.  As I said, unless there is clear proof, like credit reports and tax returns and other evidence, there is no proof he's "in trouble with the law" or creditors. I've seen plenty of news reports where some accused of a crime or something vile is approached by reporters. If they ring the bell, they get no answer. If they approach the person he or she walks away swiftly. He greeted the media and did not disappear the next day a clear sign he's in deep trouble. I only try to hope for the best with Harry and Meghan. I have spoken out against Samantha so I don't defend the "family." THe father has other than greeting the media, has said nothing nor gone to the media the way Samantha does. I think Samantha is disturbed the way she behaves. MM's mother has said nothing but the paparazzi stalked her bringing her laundry to a cleaner's. She too has said nothing, but was trashed by Samantha.  I don't feel "compelled" to do anything, I am offering my point of view, nothing more. She did not go on Playboy someone hacked into the photos. Her fiance showed himself to the world, not voluntarily, he stupidly went into a room surrounded by strangers who took his picture. She is doing appearances with Harry, she's not scowling or acting like an unsavory character, she's not doing anything the others did not do on appearances. I don't know much about her private life. It seems to be from Tumblr who routinely trash her. They are the same ones who denied there was anything going on with Harry and she was "dumped" back in 2016.  Her father keeps a low profile. If he ran around talking to the media he'd be vilified. ANd when he's keeping a low profile, he's being accused of being a criminal. He might be a hippie type who wants to live off the grid. He might be eccentric and like privacy too much.

No he's hiding and in a place he feels comfortable in avoiding problems. He can talk to the media once in a blue moon and go back into reclusion. It is that simple. He is in Mexico and they deal with things very differently. He is not going to trash his daughter.  This family is so unsuitable for the BRF and there is no doubt about that. Except now that I am realizing many things about them that are unsavory as well, maybe she is just the right fit. I appreciate your cheerleading for her. I just think that you are misguided. I know that you disagree.

I am not "cheerleading." I just don't buy into the Tumblr bashing. Yes, the family has issues. But the point is Harry and Meghan are getting married and she is marrying into a family dysfunctional in their own way. I don't see Harry's family as a bunch of saints. Or Harry himself for that matter. What is Suitable for the BRF exactly especially in this day and age? I am not "misguided" because I don't agree with you.  I have my opinion, and you have yours.

It is different if a 20 something does something stupid like nudes and a 36 years old who by that time should have known better. It's incomparable. One is stupidity that needs to be straightened out the other one is pathetic and juvenile.

I firmly believe that your past is not your future. Everyone can change and the dysfunctions of a family should not define who they are if they strive for change and work for it. Just because moody, not so bright and balding Harry is coming from difficult family dynamics this does not mean that he deserves to tie his life forever (she won't ever let go of that dream of becoming a queen) with someone who in my opinion is a clinical case.

I also don't think that Meghan is what he deserves or the best he can do. With exception of the psychopaths and the sociopaths who lack remorse and empathy, everyone else deserves to be loved for who they are and not for how they can be used or what can be taken away from them.

I also divorce the idea that because Harry seems to be moody, entitled, intense and has done stupid things and comes from unsteady family background then Meghan's transgressions should be excused and I have the perfect example for that: Hitler was not and cannot be excused for what he did only because he was just as evil and megalomaniac as Napoleon.

Nobody is giving Meghan free passes for Harry's family being what they are. There are all sorts of dysfunction. And enough to go around. Both are not perfect and it's no longer the story of the Golden Prince and Cinderella. Those days are gone forever.

^ Harry and his family are members of a centuries-old institution in Great Britain.   So, of course, the question is not -- Does Harry fit into the mess that is Meghan's family; rather, does Meghan Markle, a divorced American actress fit into the traditions and structure of the British monarchy.

Marriage is for two and for give and take. Centuries old does not equate perfection. She will have to fit in since she is taking on his lifestyle not the other way around  but she is marrying a man who is a mortal and both have flaws. I think the days of royals meaning perfection have been over for some time now.

Interesting especially after Harry just got back from there.
This “relationship” has/is being used for Brexit and this appointment just solidifies it to me. Perhaps Harry looked ill at the event in Ireland because he might have to really marry this woman. It makes zero sense to me that Harry, who’s made his own way in using his status to help others would be jealous of Wills growing family and his sliding down the scale that he’d want to get involve and marry Meghan to keep him in the limelight it’s been suggested from some people. The reality is that every time Harry makes headway and people and the press praise his efforts as they did with both IG London and the US, he gets his sails knocked off with another scandal. In this case, MM’s that and will continue to be that as long as she’s linked to him.
The blogs have to be telling the truth in regards to the wedding not being approved because more people are reading them and offering some cohesive reasons as to why this farce is still going on. Interesting enough, Felix blogger is from Australia and that’s where the next IG will be held. Skippy’s from Canada and Jersey’s from the US. As I’ve said, they’re good resources for articles and such, but I just hope that they’re not just talking nonsense to have people visit knowing that this illogical wedding might still go ahead.
KP is a sinking ship as it seems more chaotic and poorly run. Why hire professional people if Wills, being the “boss” of the office, doesn’t listen to wise council and Harry and Waity have to fall in line to whatever odd vision he has for how KP is supposed to be run.

Will and Kate could have ten children but until they come of age, Harry is required to work. it could be about 20 years before George and Charlotte work and longer for the third one. Harry would be in his fifties before the first real work is done by those two eldest children. His slide down really takes place when his brother's children start working. The wedding is going to happen no matter what Felix, et al say. If it was not, there would have been no proposal from Harry in the first place.

^^ No one is looking for Perfection.   The British Monarchy is not Perfection.   However, it IS an Institution, centuries old.  Therefore, there are requirements to entering the institution as it is more than a marriage -- also a job.   Harry gets a pass before he is a born-in.  May not be fair, but life is not.    Meg does not fit the box in any manner whatsoever.   This is more than a marriage to be considered.

upon marriage to a Prince, a "commoner" becomes a royal. The "negatives" I see a lot about Meghan are that: 1)she's a divorcee--and divorcees have been let in already; 2) She's an American--well, consorts to the BRF have come from other countries so present royals have bloodlines from Denmark, France, etc.; 3) and some just don't care for her or don't like the way she looks or her clothes and so on. The thing is the Queen approved the wedding. She is allowing it. And the wedding is going through. if she did not formally approve it then that would be another matter. The "rules" for entering the institution have been relaxed. I can see future generations following the "relaxed rules" policy unless by some fluke one gets to marry a royal from another country.

The high paying job Meghan Markle could have had before Prince Harry engagement revealed
Quote
The former student of Northwestern University in Illinois studied theatre and international studies, and took on an internship at the US embassy in Buenos Aires, Argentina, age 20.
She worked as a freelance calligrapher to boot. However, before her relationship with Harry became serious Meghan also had a side career that may have made her large sums of money.
Meghan ran a successful blog, The Tig, for almost three years.
The lifestyle website aimed to offer inspirational advice to young women.
Amanda Dishaw, editorial director of Vancouver-based lifestyle fashion publisher Effervescence Media, told the BBC: “She was definitely making money off the affiliate marketing on the website: for example, she would have her friend Jessica Mulroney come on to talk about current fashion trends, and then the site would recommend certain pieces of clothing with links to where you could buy the items.”
https://www.express.co.uk/life-style/life/937158/meghan-markle-job-the-tig-prince-harry-wedding-news-suits
The Tig has been brought up several times of late. The IRS will be very interested in how much she made off the blog in 2017.
It’s not a good idea, come to think of it, of having an American actress who has her own agenda and isn’t afraid of stating it regardless if it has anything to do with the matter at hand (the foundation forum), to represent the UK and the royal family should this bizzare coupling gets married. She’s shown that she’s a liability and the novelty of her being mixed has worn off as her rubbish character has come more to light. A blood prince of the realm with responsibilities to his family, country and his role should be embarrassed and ashamed for having someone like Meghan as his future wife that I still can only hope that this nightmare was for a reason and she’ll get lost back to the States. The real news about her tax and status should be on offer not who’s not invited to the tacky celebrity wedding.
What ever happened to the petition to not have public funds used for the wedding? Shouldn’t that have been discussed at Parliament?  ???
More articles about how she’s spending money on the tackiest wedding of the year.

The petition organised by Republic won't be debated in Parliament. They haven't got the numbers needed and the vast number of petitions never see the light of day in the Commons anyway. They just collect dust in a cubbyhole somewhere.

All Royal weddings have second and backup cakes. William had a chocolate biscuit groom's cake for his wedding.

it will just be the one cake

I think there will be a back-up cake. No one cake will be enough for 600 guests plus extra slices for relatives who can't get there. And IMO it still remains to be seen as to whether there will be a groom's cake of some sort.

Felix is absolutely hilarious. He's the one leading the charge that this marriage won't go ahead because the Lord Chamberlain hasn't signed off on it. He quite obviously knows nothing about protocol, the Privy Council (which is apparently 'huge' according to one poster there. Well, no actually it isn't huge at all, dear.)

The Lord Chamberlain is a senior official, appointed by the Queen to coordinate various Royal events including Royal weddings, (along with assistants). He doesn't sign off on anything, and he certainly doesn't have to give approval for any Royal marriages. Only the Queen does that, and she has already informed the Privy Council of her consent. The letter has been printed in the media, we've all seen it.

The Lord Chamberlain is mentioned on the wedding invitations. The RSVPs have to go back to him. However, I'm hoping that Felix does keep on this same mistaken track. The fall from grace when the parchment Charter is published in May and the wedding goes ahead will therefore be all the greater. These Tumblr people will be exposed as the idiots they are. Looking forward to it.

As for Harry looking miserable in NI he looked exactly the same as he always does. He stated in his engagement interview that he had fallen in love incredibly quickly. He certainly wouldn't be lying, and on every public engagement since, he and Meghan have held hands, smiled at each other and exchanged loving looks.

Meghan Markle will be marrying into the institution in May. If Felix was that loyal to the Crown he and his little cohorts like Iamstillskippy and Winkie (who portrays herself as a BP insider but quite obviously isn't) would learn something about how it all operates, and not disseminate wrong info that people read as the gospel truth. He was at it again today, denying that the Lord Chamberlain's office was in charge of the RSVPs. He doesn't seem to know that the Lord Comptroller works within the Chamberlain's Office on ceremonial events.

Well, I certainly don't believe the misinformation, libel and absolute lying that has gone on JD, Felix and Iamskippy's Twitter/Tumblr. Working in cahoots with each other they have alleged (without offering one skerrick of proof) that Meghan has been a prostitute, a hostess, a stripper, slept with a hockey team, is a crackhead and has had abortions.

If any of that had been printed in any magazine, newspaper or legitimate media outlet anywhere in the western world the publishers would have been sued for libel, and rightly so. That is why, in spite of my contempt for the Fail and other tabloids, I consider Tumblr and it's trash infinitely worse.

Depends on the definition of 'huge'. There are over 600 members but ... usually only 3 - 4 attend the Privy Council meetings and they are chosen by the PM on a month by month occasion. The only times more attend are when they are being sworn in as members. Membership is for life as well (although there have been some disgraced members who have been 'forced' to resign e.g. Lord Profumo.

So true. The Lord Chamberlain (also a member of the Privy Council) and his office co-ordinate all the invitations sent out to all the royal events as well as the events being held, both official and unofficial, in the royal palaces so of course the Lord Chamberlain is the 'organiser' for the wedding. While he/she is doing that they are also organising garden parties, Royal Ascot, Trooping the Colour, receptions, lunches, dinners, meetings, afternoon teas, investitures etc that take place in any palace across the country.

Will be fun to watch the fall-out.

Their knowledge seems to be made-up as even a most basic ability to research how things are done would have told them that only HM has to give consent to a marriage - she has done so; that only a few people ever turn up to a Privy Council meeting - listed in the CC each month when they happen; that the Lord Chamberlain co-ordinates events - basic research on the internet will tell them the job of this office.

He looks as he has always looked - connecting with the people but also part of him not wanting to be there - holding himself in check so as not to let go of his control but able to make everyone feel like he is one with them.

Sports fanatics will not get married on the FA cup final unless they are in their 20s, the wedding is at the city hall only and they can go to the stadium after that.

Here's a scoop as to why this sharade is continuing and what MM still has on H:

Quote
I mentioned before how this gentleman says that H continues with M because it is the socially virtuous thing to do, to be seen as color blind. What started as a hook up became more, she acted well enough for that. By the time things soured she and Marcus had enough evidence of a relationship (between M&H) to make it real to the public. Harry dithered. M and Marcus began stealth charitable activities. Making visits to places like Grenfell, other low income and ethnic localities, under the pretense of royal backing.

It reached the point whereby if Harry backed out of the marriage they would be able to unleash a racial tidal wave of anger at the family. They even have people, some being heads of  organizations willing to speak (lie) on M’s behalf, to say that Harry dumped her on orders from the Queen. They also benefit from this whichever way it goes. Please understand that this is something the royal family would never be able to overcome, the hatred of the majority of their subjects believing them to be racist, believing them to have destroyed poor, innocent Meghan who just had the bad luck of loving a white prince.
So Marcus gets revenge for years of sucking up to and standing along side but never being part of the privileged people. If it didn’t work out though, he’s really none the worse for it. For Meghan it is an all or nothing move, but one she feels certain she will win. It doesn’t matter if people speak out about who she really is, the herd mentality of racism will drown it all out. The horror of it all being that Harry is not racist.

Yet another ridiculous Tumblr theory of Felix's and his anons. No doubt that will be trotted out to explain things on May 19th, as those on these sites are now realising that there is only a little over seven weeks left before the wedding.

All the other theories that ended up with him and his cohorts looking like fools-- that this was a sham relationship (which headed his Tumblr page for ever, until he was proved irrevocably wrong and he took it down), all the theories that this relationship was an arrangement and it would end in Aug, Dec, January and on and on. Instead it ended with an engagement between Harry and Meghan.

And Felix is still carrying on that the invitations aren't genuine, and that Parliament has to OK this marriage. Wrong, wrong, and wrong again. Read up about the Queen's consent, about the Privy Council, about the Lord Chamberlain, Felix mate, and how they operate, and stop running off at the mouth about positions at Court and organisations you quite obviously don't understand.

Otherwise, when that parchment Charter appears with the Queen's signature on it about the first week of May, Felix will face the wrath of people he has just fed lies and misinformation to for months. Only seven weeks to go.

Interesting from another forum

'Just learned that Meghan Markle was raised in the "Agape Spiritual Church." This is why she needed to be baptized. This is not ANY major religion!

https://agapelive.com/

It basically is a hodge-podge of any and all religions.

Meghan may have gone to a Roman Catholic school, but to do that, she either had to be "officially" Roman Catholic OR her parents agreed to pay higher fees. In any event, she would have been deeply instructed in Roman Catholicism in addition to a regular school curriculum.'

My local hospital (Addenbrookes) made the front page of the Daily Mail this week because it is in crisis and has cancelled ALL urgent operations and cancer treatments. Where are our priorities? How can it be right that people in Cambridgeshire are going without cancer treatment... but we can waste £30 million on Harry and Markle to show off on their two-mile carriage procession around Windsor?

The vast majority of these newspaper articles about costs for the wedding of Harry/Meghan emanated from an online bridal blog in which an 'expert' made guesses about the various costs, including £30 million for security. The tabloids then seized on this with glee and published it all as verified fact. They will probably inflate this by degrees so that by May we will be hearing that the wedding costs around 80 million! In fact the costs of the security will not be known until a few weeks after the wedding, when it will be tabled and then the Press will publish it.

Whatever the cost it's is definitely not going down well with the British public who would much rather have it spent on the NHS.  People are getting very angry and as marion said even the usually pro Daily Telegraph are being very negative.  Harry and Megan are becoming very unpopular.

I am old enough to remember people talking about the costs of Princess Margaret's wedding, and security was nothing then to what it is now. People were shocked when the full costs of Charles and Diana's wedding were known (at least the public and ceremonial part of it) though Diana and Charles were enormously popular at the time. Again, terrorism, apart from the IRA, was unknown in Britain then.

I was visiting London when the possible costs of the then forthcoming Andrew and Sarah wedding was being discussed and some didn't want that show either. The Wessexes were never popular and their wedding costs were discussed. Again, in 1999, there had been no terrible terrorism incidents apart from IRA bombings. (Those last three weddings I contributed to with my taxes.)

There was an awful lot of complaining by the tabloids and their readers about the cost of the wedding of William and Kate and the security costs involved. In all cases it was discussed and complained about by some, and then forgotten. And IMO this wedding will be exactly the same. Blame terrorism for these huge security measures.

Yes, I totally agree!
All the blogs are trying to build up Waity as the ideal royal. I really don't get the push because she's married in already and the criticism that she rightly received for being work shy and other things are because as a future queen consort, her position requires leadership and cohesive direction which she didn't have before C. Quinn came on board to deal with her. I just find the hard push a bit jarring.  ???


This woman also used the race card to get the principal balerina job and can't take the criticism that she's not up to par with the expectations of parts of the choreography. It's cringe worthy her response to the criticism.  :-X

This is where American give-everyone-a-prize mentality loses because of inability to recognize and reward the best. It's a truly pathetic reflection of ballet standards. Other countries encourage people to be best. You can either dance the moves or you can't. If you can't do the job you shouldn't be principle dancer and that the end of the story. Top ballet schools around the world are laughing at this farce.

^^^^^ Princess Margaret is a royal, sister of the queen and at the time of her marriage not 6th in line to the throne. When Princess Diana was marrying everyone was liking her, everyone was expecting the wedding and by the looks of it - the wedding, the tiara, the carriage ride have left such a lasting impression to the world that a delusional 36 years old, wigged and botoxed divorcee is set on the Diana experience despite she has no star power at all.

And not only that. Meghan, just like Misty in the ^ link has probably been praised in vain so much when growing up, without real accomplishments behind the praises, that she doesn't get it that she's terrible at public appearances. She may want to change the world but she must first start with fixing her own wig.

Royal wedding: Can Meghan Markle have dual citizenship? Will she be 100 per cent British?

Even marrying a royal won’t automatically make Meghan British.
The government added: “You don’t automatically become a British citizen when you marry a person from the UK. You need to apply as the spouse of a British citizen.”

Meghan Markle used THIS trick to win over Prince Philip, says royal insider – did it work?
Quote
Rather than simply discussing the royal family she is marrying into, Meghan chose to quiz Prince Philip on his own personal background.
The tactic is said to have worked a treat, according to the source, and Prince Philip was also said to have warmed quickly to Meghan’s confident personality.
“The Duke of Edinburgh really got on with her,” the source revealed to Express.co.uk.
“The reason he liked her was because she was very bold,” they added. Meghan is also said to have showed a keen interest in the Duke of Edinburgh’s family background.
Born in Corfu, Greece, Prince Philip was part of the Danish and Greek royal families when he was born.

Misty used it during her marketing campaign to force the hand of the ABT artistic director to make her principal ballerina; supposedly the first black woman or man to have that distinction in the history of the company.

I've read persistent rumours for quite a while, with no basis that I can see, that Harry has asked for the loan of the Spencer tiara and that Diana's brother may be OK about lending it. The tiara is for the use of the Spencer females. There are plenty of other tiaras in the vaults.

Megsy is said to be obsessed with Diana, but that the tiara is according to press even a contender is ridiculous, as it's traditionally for Spencer women (specifically: the earl's daughters), not for all and extended relatives. Even if the possibility were there, it would be beyond ridiculous and disturbingly creepy. Because in this case it wouldn't be simply a family heirloom that's being worn by new people, but a blatant copying and pulling of the Diana-card. They have to let the poor woman go and let her rest in peace, they can't complain about other people using her for their purposes when they do the same, in a worse fashion.


Title: Re: Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are engaged III
Post by: Miss Hathaway on March 30, 2018, 08:40:54 pm
It would be a huge mistake for Meggles to wear the Spencer tiara.  So much focus would be on the tiara and Meg would, frankly, be a figure of ridicule in it.



Title: Re: Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are engaged III
Post by: sandy on March 30, 2018, 08:47:22 pm
I hardly think she'd be a figure of ridicule wearing a tiara from the Spencer Family (and her future Husband is a Spencer and a Windsor). But that said, I doubt she'll wear it. I think she might choose something from another collection, possibly a small tiara of the Queen Mother's.


Title: Re: Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are engaged III
Post by: HRHOlya on March 30, 2018, 09:14:44 pm
^ A tiara, sure, but the tiara, no. Everyone is gunning for the Spencer tiara, namely "Diana's", and that's imo creepy as heck. And in any case, tiaras like that are traditionally for the earl's daughters, so technically M isn't even a contender for possible wear.

And there is no way MEggles will ever get Big Blue which is even more associated with Diana than the tiara. But the Spencer tiara would be the next best thing for this grasping woman.


Title: Re: Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are engaged III
Post by: HRHOlya on March 30, 2018, 09:39:44 pm
^ Yeah, I'd say the biggest "signature" pieces associated with Diana are the Camb Lover's Knot tiara, the Spencer tiara, the sapphire & diamonds cluster engagement ring, the sapphire & diamonds cluster choker, and the Cartier tank (francaise) - I believe she had two of those, one in gold and one with a leather strap.

At this point only the choker is truly to be seen on someone, the rest has either been claimed by Waity or belongs to the Spencers, and the watch is a classic which can still be bought new at any Cartier shop. Murkles in fact already has a tank francaise, the steel version.


Title: Re: Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are engaged III
Post by: sandy on March 30, 2018, 09:55:22 pm
Harry has access to jewels DIana had like the diamonds for the engagement ring. SO he got other pieces besides the watch.

It is a long shot that she would wear the same one Kate had.

That is an extreme long-shot as it is in the Cartier Exhibition in Australia at the moment and will be here until well after the wedding. The fact Kate wore it for the wedding is one of the marketing tools being used for this exhibition at the National Gallery of Australia.


Title: Re: Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are engaged III
Post by: HRHOlya on March 30, 2018, 10:53:57 pm
^^^ Yeah, read the same, she got it before the wedding as permanent loan and found it too heavy and difficult to wear, so she asked for the Spencer tiara on loan, until Charles took it back for good. That's why she wore the Spencer tiara over the years often and prefered it to the CLK, which was too heavy and gave headaches and the clinking of the pearls against the metal frame was also supposedly annoying as heck.

I agree, they could cobble one together like for Soph.

According to reports, the vaults are bursting with stuff, incl tiaras, but the few that are in rotation are kind of all handed out already, as the Winds (per Liz) don't borrow & swap tiaras amongst each other like e.g. the Bernadottes. And Kate kinda got all the tiaras that were left up for grabs..

I also don't understand why people claim the Strathmore rose is "too fragile", firstly, what and how can it be so damaged to be "fragile"? What happened to it to be in such a state? It's metal and diamonds, not lace and cotton! Secondly, they have all the money and resources to either repair that old thing or have it completely re-set.
But then some rumours circle that the Strathmore rose has been dismantled and some of it ended up in Sophie's cobbled together fugly piece...

They could also buy her a tiara, some (smaller) tiaras are surprisingly cheap.

^^ Well, for now only Charles's wife & daughters can call dibs on any Spencer tiara and no one else, don't know why the press keeps bringing up a totally unavailable tiara that belongs to a specific family and their branch... :dontknow:
And even if Meg could borrow it for her wedding, she'll still need one of her own for tiara events. No Spencer tiara can be available for that.


Title: Re: Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are engaged III
Post by: Alexandrine on March 30, 2018, 10:55:59 pm
If I am not wrong there were spencer jewels on the USA when Kate married and the spencers used those jewels anyway fpr the wedding.

But in any case I think they will giver her a new one like it happened to Fergie and Sophie.


Title: Re: Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are engaged III
Post by: HRHOlya on March 30, 2018, 11:30:20 pm
^ I am pretty sure that things can be pulled temporarily out of exhibitions like that, as they are owned by (private) people and they can have them back for a short time when they need them. Other people have done so too. In theory, to my knowledge, the Cartier Scroll could be pulled from the exhibtion for, say, about a week (incl travel time & wedding). We also know for a fact that these people have replicas made of the real stuff, and frequently in fact wear fakes, esp for trips abroad. So who knows where the Cartier Scroll really is and how many copies exist of that in vaults :spy:

Fergie got the better deal though over Sophie... Sophie's is fugly, small and dingly, Fergie's is quite big and substantial and imo beautiful...

Post by: Rosella on March 30, 2018, 11:40:20 pm
^I agree. The origin of the pieces making up Sophie's wedding tiara seem to be a bit mysterious. It was supposedly made from various disparate pieces that were lying around in the vaults from Victorian times. Whatever they were, from old necklaces or what, that tiara looked cobbled together. It was compounded by that very ugly necklace she wore that was designed by Edward and has scarcely been seen since. Fergie's had no Royal provenance of course but was very nice.

Quote
Was Markle really plotting to marry Prince Harry from the start? As much as their romance wants to sound like a Hallmark Movie, perhaps it’s more Lifetime than anything else.
Whether she’s 100 percent authentic (less than likely) or completely calculating (probably somewhat true) Markle is about to completely disrupt the royal family—and inspire young girls playing princess to start scheming. After all, if a Suits actress can become a member of the royal family, anything is possible.

MM's track record tells me that she has issues.  My search for the real Sparkles continues as she morphs from one act to another.  What's her longest relationship?  Friendship?  Job?  No offense to how life happens but this woman is just a colossal disaster waiting to happen.  Guaranteed.

People on Tumblr sites are the last people on earth I'd rely on to sum up others' character. And there's never been any documentation to show that Meghan has been married more than the once to Trevor.

^Yes.  There’s a lot here.  The strangest one that pops out is who returns their wedding ring after at least a year marriage?  This broad, I guess.  Unless it was his great grandmother’s or something but she’d have broadcasted that “sacrificial generosity”.  Sounds spiteful and definitely cruel.  Sell ‘em!  Don’t purposely cause pain to others because you can.

I’m beginning to go beyond sneering disgust with this snake in the grass female.  Gonna buy this book, tho, to add to my Royal *fools* collection.

It looks to me like Morton, who wrote this book in a couple of months has done a copy and paste job on most of it, primarily from the DM, as it doesn't appear as if he got many of the principal people around Meghan to talk.

 It's instructive that he has spoken directly to estranged half-sister Samantha and to Meghan's ex best friend who sold her photos and her story to the Fail. However, he doesn't seem to have spoken directly to many friends, (and there are direct quotes from a tabloid article from one of them, I recognise) though I'm suspending judgement on that until I get the book, which I've pre-ordered.

It doesn't look as if Morton got to speak to Trevor directly or to Cory. An unnamed 'entrepreneurial friend' gave the anecdote about the rings being sent back, not the ex husband himself, according to this article. So second or perhaps even third hand information there.


Title: Re: Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are engaged III
Post by: Ariel on April 02, 2018, 05:27:43 am
Per the tumblr rumors Cory and Trevor got lawsuit threats and an NDA forced on them, with Cory walking away with 50K in hush money so they can't talk. An author doesn't have to interview the wannabe princess in order to get the scoop. They can do a thing called investigative journalism.

Do tell when you read the book if there's mentions of her husband before Trevor (with proof, not just speculation) and money making activities on the less moral side.



Title: Re: Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are engaged III
Post by: Rosella on April 02, 2018, 05:58:38 am
They CAN do that but it's obvious so far that Morton, in his rush to get a book out, didn't indulge in any investigative stuff. Just pored over videos about Meghan and trawled the British tabloids. That is from what I've read so far. The book gets released in about three weeks.

^^I will.  Morton's been down this road before and knows how to get information even if there's a NDA.  You simply ask everyone who knows him or a "person close to" him.  They can't have a NDA for every person who knew the couple especially if they're US citizens protected by the Constitution. 

Yet another reason an American with a checkered past isn't the most brilliant move.  Should be an interesting read.  If I, a nobody, have already heard from those she worked with that she's a heartless b*^ch, I'm sure it'll be easier for a published author facing bitter ex-associates of hers. 

Sparkles broke the cardinal rule in ruthless ambition by being too unkind and helping herself at others' expense, which is her style.  I have never heard one person say she ever helped anyone but herself.

^Off the top of my head, I think Morton had tapes sent to him in an ultra secret manner with the intent to "tell her story" but keep her able to deny any complicity in it.  Then, I think she got sick of that and just told the truth so Morton's credibility was restored.  The BRF manipulate the truth better than the mafia sometimes.

But, it would be nice to hear and see in print the real Sparkles Saga.  I'd bet a whole lot that she's the one responsible for people thinking her mother was the nanny or maid or what have you to make herself look more upwardly mobile, too.  Wouldn't put it past her. 

Bugs me, too, that she's always playing the crowd with her skin color or ancestry.  She's just another trawler in California.  You can't throw a pebble without hitting one there.  My eye doctor fired one because she'd only wait on men after checking what car he drove.  The Goal is to snag someone of influence or money.  Nothing else matters.  They're predators.  All I have to do to get good service anywhere in SoCal is to tell some young woman that my son is a lawyer.  They are relentless, tho, as to when he's coming in, do I have a picture, what's his number, where does he hang out, blah blah.

She's no different.  Nothing special.  And Harry's stupid.

She had a photo op with Carolyn Bartholomew which indicated she approved of the book. Morton told what really happened after Diana died. Diana wanted to get her side out there she would no way tell the royals she was complicit in it, there would have been consequences. She was fed up with CHarles friends leaking nasty items about her to the media. And they did.

That said, Morton cashed in on his association with Diana even after she died, writing "new editions" of the book and so on.

I am curious as to why Morton is taking the negative tone with Meghan. Meghan is not perfect but I wonder if he's cynically looking at the possible "market" for the book and looks at the DM comments especially. The royals have let her in. SO is he hitting at the royals? ANd Morton seems to be "anti establishment."

I am also wondering why Harry is not criticized. He seems to be made a passive saintly figure that is "taken advantage of" by a "wicked city girl." Harry has been around the block quite a few times himself.

^ I agree with you on Diana and her getting her side out, Sandy.

Naturally, I disagree with you about Megs.   Why is Morton taking a negative tone?  Because she is a negative person.  She is not a good fit for the Royal Family.  Harry is already there, like it or not.  They don't need to let any more unfit persons into the Firm.  Megs is so over-the-top awful, it isn't hard to find people to talk about how unlikeable she is.  And it will only get worse when she marries.   It won't be the fairytale she's expecting.


Title: Re: Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are engaged III
Post by: sandy on April 02, 2018, 03:12:48 pm
Morton is known to be critical of the royals. But why is Harry treated with kid gloves? It takes two to make a wedding and marriage. Harry is "there" but he chose Meghan so why is he spared. He's a human being and as I said Royals are no better than anybody else they are not gods and are people who likewise are flawed. I think the criticism of Meghan will have the opposite effect, Harry will be more protective of her.  If Harry did not choose her or propose to her Meghan would not be where she is today. So why is Harry spared? Just curious.

Post by: Ariel on April 02, 2018, 03:13:25 pm
There certainly is a market for the tell all for MM. My guess as to why PH is not deemed as a culprit but a victim to this is that social climbers that would stop at nothing to get to the top choose a victim with a wallet not an accomplice with a wallet. It's a stereotype.

Maybe Trevor was not that perfect but the fact is that he helped her with her career and she dumped him. Does anyone make Trevor the bad guy in this - nope.
Maybe Cory is not that perfect either. He's a well-liked in Toronto, helps with shelter dogs gets involved in charities but surely behind closed door he's a monster. After all that's what MM told PH, allegedly. Does anyone goes after Cory - nope. Same will be done with PH. Is PH a saint - I guess no one, or very few people (who don't know him) think that. But will he be blamed for, let's say, wanting to get rid of MM - nope.


Title: Re: Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are engaged III
Post by: sandy on April 02, 2018, 03:17:49 pm
Neither Meghan nor Trevor commented on exactly why they broke up. They were the ones involved, people outside the relationship may speculate but only the couple know the exact dynamics. Harry is no victim. He was with many women who clearly were opportunists and as Harry's exes had some doors opened to them and got in their 15 minutes of fame. Harry was involved with many women and he has broken up with women and dumped them. He could have done the same with Meghan. He's 33 not a virginal 18 year old with an older woman "wanting him." She's only 3 years older. If Harry did not propose she would not be in the papers nor on her way to being a royal bride.

I guess some see Harry has a "kid" when he's a grownup now and he made his own choices.

^ and ^^^Good for Morton for being critical of the Royals.  Otherwise, he'd be Penny Junor! He's the one who was able to break the news that Charles was cheating on the most popular Royal icon.  Harry is being treated as if he is stupid, rather than with kid gloves.   The majority of people who are paying attention to this "romance" see Megs for what she is.  And it ain't pretty.   So people are wanting him to wake up before he ruins his life.  Will Harry become MORE protective of Megs?    Maybe for a while, but when the honeymoon is over -- and according to Enquirer sources, it is already waning -- Harry will be done and will find a mistress, just like other royal men. Then the Firm is stuck with Megs who will use the race card and whatever else she can use.  She is truly an unlikeable person.   Harry will probably *despise* her in the end, and himself for being duped.

Well the two better act like grownups and work on the marriage. "Getting tired" of a fiancee (if so) makes Harry bad, like he got a new toy he gets tired of in 5 minutes. It's a marriage and the two need to do serious work on making sure the marriage is a success. I like that Morton is critical of royals. Harry is not that stupid he's a grown up, he was in the military and graduated from Sandhurst. He must have some active working brain cells.  I would not give either of them free passes if they don't work on the marriage. The Enquirer is not the gospel but it could serve as a warning to the couple to commit and look past the wedding and honeymoon and behave like grown ups should.

He is a grownup and he's clearly making the mistake of his life international news. This still does not make him an excuse of what MM has done in the past and what type of person she has been and continues to be. A a leopard doesn't change its spots.

Title: Re: Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are engaged III
Post by: sandy on April 02, 2018, 03:31:14 pm
No it does not excuse anything. But without his proposing Meghan would have been history ages ago. I think any couple that gets married is obligated to work on the marriage and not just give up on it from the beginning. Royals and their brides to be should get pre marital counseling.


Title: Re: Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are engaged III
Post by: Ariel on April 02, 2018, 03:36:56 pm
I get what you're saying and I am with you on that but with a tiny objection. If there are any doubts it is best to call it off. If there are doubts before the wedding, imagine what kind of monsters these doubts will turn into after the wedding. Pre-marital counselling - I am 100% for that. Also a divorce lawyer is recommended because if a couple is not on the same page about what they want from each other before they marry, they will not be on the same page at the divorce proceedings too. I bet you that if PH and MM go to counseling and to a lawyer they'll see how much they are a mismatch. Whatever misguided feelings got him to propose will not be there for the long run. A woman can manipulate a man into marrying her but not into loving her.

^^^^^ Well, Megs "got tired" of her first husband, Trevor, Sandy and mailed the rings back.  So we already know she is bad and not willing to work at a marriage if she sees a better offer for the taking.

^ Yes, we discussed this when it happened, but excellent review of how completely and totally Harry was so not into Megs.   He doesn't touch her, smile at her, looks at her with dull eyes only briefly when he is forced to.  Meanwhile, Megs is hanging all over him, touching him.  He is stone.

I read on a site that this was because Harry had broken up with Megs and she showed up at the wedding anyway, forcing her way back into his life.  He wasn't happy to see her there.  That fits the body language.

Post by: sandy on April 02, 2018, 06:26:08 pm
I don't think she's "bad." At least she did not keep the ring. She would have been more vilified for that. There are such things as "bad breakups" which do not mean they are "bad people." IMO anyway.

Nobody could force Harry to do anything, IMO he did this of his own free will.

If getting tired of a fiancee is bad, then what is getting tired of your husband of two years?  If Harry is bad because he is tiring of Megs, then Megs is even worse for ducking out of her marriage with a nice guy who helped her get an acting job.

I was addressing the Enquirer story. That is the context of the quote (Harry allegedly "tiring" of her).

Morton did not interview the two who would know exactly what happened: Trevor and Meghan. Most likely they will not comment about the marriage. So assumptions that she "tired" of him would be speculation only until or if one or both give interviews about the marriage.

How is it known how "nice" Trevor was? It takes two to make a marriage. Why assume she is the "bad person"? Neither of them are bad they had marital difficulties and found they could not continue with a marriage.

That is the one thing I do agree with you on, sandy.  I think Harry should be criticized just as much as Meghan has been over this marriage because he is making a huge mistake that will bring trouble and ultimately embarrassment to the RF.  There is a reason why all the women Harry ever dated walked away from him and never looked back.  And, a reason why Meghan could not sustain a marriage or relationship for longer than two years, you basically have two very unstable individuals about to walk down the aisle, which is a recipe for disaster.  

But, I think the reason why no one has really criticized Harry at this point is because given his own sketchy past, no one is surprised by his recent bad choices because this what he has a history of doing.  Unfortunately, when it comes to Harry there is almost a numbness to his bad behavior because doing to wrong thing is what he likes to do.

We don't know who ended the relationships between Chelsy and Harry and Cressida and Harry. None of the people concerned have spoken about it. In the cases of both girls (and Chelsy was involved with Harry for a very long time) it's been said that the idea of Royal life put them both off. That has nothing to do with Harry's qualities or personality.

It was said at the time of the Cressida breakup that it was Harry who broke it off. That was what the tabloids inferred at the time, and to their delight Cressida was seen publicly crying on one occasion. Harry has dated numerous other women. We don't known what happened to end any of those relationships, or who broke it off.

Meghan was married for two years, but also dated then lived with Trevor for seven years before that. So Meghan (and Trevor) sustained a relationship of nine years, not two.

Police tracking up to 160 Royal 'stalkers' ahead of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's wedding
Quote
Up to 160 people with unhealthy obsessions about Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are being tracked ahead of their wedding .
Referrals to a specialist unit that manages royal stalkers are at a record high since the couple went public in November 2016.
The 160 are made up of 106 men and 54 women and included seven people classed as “high risk”. Six were detained under mental health laws, figures obtained by the Mirror reveal.
Officers and psychiatric nurses are visiting the most obsessed in the build-up to next month’s nuptials and one man has been detained under mental health laws in the past few months.
The Fixated Threat Assessment Centre is also looking online for potential dangers to Harry and Meghan. Former Royal Protection Command chief Dai Davies said: “The publicity and interest in Meghan and the wedding will add to the protection squad’s concerns.
A total of 462 people were referred to the unit in the past three years, including 26 deemed “high risk”.
Police fear the biggest threat at the wedding could come from stalkers rather than terrorists.

I watched the Steve Harvey show in which he had a panel of three women talking about relationships. Steve, who has written books about how men think in order to help women understand men, said that a man determines in about 6 months if the woman he is dating will become his wife. He said something like, "what do I have to offer this woman and what does she offer me?" Interesting. I immediately thought of Harry.  :tehe:

I think its fascinating and sort of like winning the lottery that Meghan networked with rich people in Canada and then in the UK that allowed her to meet a prince and succeed at being with a prince because said prince wants her. Absolutely incredible, right? I'm in awe!  :thumbsup:

^^I knew one man who knew on the first date that he and his wife were meant to be together. They were very young though. Sometimes it's people meeting each other at the right stage in their lives for settling down, as well. And other times, as we saw with Beatrice, a relationship can drift on and on and on until it becomes almost just a habit. There's no marriage but they breakup and then the man (it's usually the man) goes off and becomes engaged/married to someone else within a year.

^ Well, Wallis's time was in the 1930s.   There really isn't too much else to say about her.    Meggles, however, is brand new.  Gonna change the monarchy, cause everybody loves 'em a good love story!!! :loveshower:

Anyone who is keeping up with this "romance" will want to check out what Morton -- and everyone else -- says about this woman.

Of course there are others - for every legit uncovering of her real motives and her past there's a entire PR spite back at whoever dared to mention the apparent truth about her. I'd expect around April 17th to have the sugary movie come out, the Tatler cover, 10 sugary DM articles.

It will be the announcement of the privy council saying yes all over again - the day the said the Queen said yes the topless pictures came out. KP said they were fake the same day, sandy and Rosella said the same, and then next day there were 10 articles in DM writing what KP said, publishing the video of the pics and there was also a story and a video about MM wanting to be queen and to boss around at someone else's party.

I'm enjoying the show - it's at someone else's expense but let's not make mistake - there's PR wars going on and we've got a front row seat for this show.

^^   The one by Katie is mostly about Harry, with a bit of Meggles thrown in at the end.  Morton's book is going to be Meghan:  Hollywood Princess.    Which will be dirt on Megs.

There's going to be a lot of dirt written about Megs, so buckle up.

The week of the 16th-17th of April is the CHOGM conference in London. All the senior royals, including Harry, will be involved in the meeting and greeting. It will be all hands to the pump (probably involving Meghan as well.) CHOGM certainly wasn't planned to deflect from Morton and they'll all be far too busy to be bothered about him or his book. Probably most of the sensational stuff has already come out any way, as the Sun has serialised it.

'It Was Worth the Wait:' How Meghan Markle 'Completes' Prince Harry

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are set to tie the knot in just a few weeks. And while their romance has been a whirlwind, Harry’s search for the missing piece — an equal partner with whom he could share his life and passions — has been years in the making.

After nearly losing himself following the 1997 death of his mother, Princess Diana, Harry earned a reputation as a royal rebel, partying too hard and making tabloid headlines for bad behavior, including an infamous game of strip billiards in Vegas. He went on to find purpose and discipline in the British Army, and became ready for the next phase of his life.

“Harry’s drinking days are over,”a source tells PEOPLE in this week’s issue. “All of his best friends have settled and had children, so he’s had fewer people to go out and play with. He realized he was getting a bit older and that it was time to settle down

Adds Duncan Larcombe, a former royals reporter who traveled with Prince Harry throughout much of the early 2000s and is the author of the new biography Prince Harry: The Inside Story: “He desperately wanted to get married and be happy. He sees his brother [Prince William] has found that. The fact that Meghan arrived when she did completes it for Harry.”

Meghan Markle Makes a Secret Trip Out of the Country as Wedding Nears

Considering the spotlight on Meghan Markle right now, as we careen closer and closer to her May 19 wedding date to Prince Harry, it would seem like it’d be tough for the bride to get pretty much anything done without it becoming a huge story. Markle can’t exactly hop outside to pick up a name-card sample or check out a potential wedding sconce, or what have you, without photographers descending.

Or at least that’s what you’d think! According to a new report from Good Morning America royal correspondent Omid Scobie, Markle has managed to not only step out of her Palace digs without being detected—she actually fled to a different country for a pre-wedding errand. Markle “quietly jetted” out of London on Thursday to make her way to Los Angeles, where she is reportedly “spending quality time”—and, of course, “talking wedding plans”—with her mother, Doria Ragland. Scobie reports that this is not the only mother-daughter time the two will get before the big day, as Ragland will be flying back to London well in advance of the wedding. (Secret wedding-dress fittings continue to take place in an “undisclosed London location” and at the Palace.)

Noooo. IRS by now have tracked all the merching money to the PR agency set up by JM in Canada and FrimFram - her starco. It takes them a year or two to start knocking on doors. They'll probably lay low until they can get their hands into PH's income and any cooperation from Markle will result in less penalties and spying for US.

The UK immigration should be more curious as to qhat's going on really. She's working while on a family visa. Obvy why she can't do her pap walks - clear violation of the requirements until she gets the ring officially. I don't think that they'll throw her out the country but the tumblr sites keep digging about her income and her not being an upstanding candidate for visa so my guess is that she's in a lose lose situation - can't merch now because of her visa and all income after marriage will be a foot in the door to turn her into a spy... or PC can always pay up for her antics as many as they are.

However, if they want to marry Princess Diana style I'm sure that the visa issues will be swept under the rug while the tax and allegiance issues will begin.

Not exactly. Social Media has proven time and again to be the power behind the power. The guy who killed Cecil got his life ruined within a week and got the judicial system to start investigating. The leaks from the White House got a special investigation appointed.

With the tumblr girls a lot of what they've been saying and digging up came to the mass media - the nude photos for example. There's numerous situations where they question the legitimacy of something and the next day there's an article in DM giving smoke screen explanation about it.

The instagram guy with his PG style criticism is refreshing. MM seems to be so full of herself that she can't see when she's off the mark and apparently, per articles in mainstream media, she's been dreaming of and preparing for this role her whole life, yet still can't do it.

The link also has a long article about her possible issues with the IRS.

IMO, she’s trapped now because she has to deal with the various government agencies herself.

I think I’ve heavily inflated the power, knowledge, prestige and influence that the BRF ‘wall of protection’ really has.  If they have such an elite squad of brilliance somebody’s ignoring their input and advice.  Just looking at the them is all one has to do to see somebody’s not super sharp.

No well-oiled org or group with org issues would have bungled some of the things they have.  Just “the topless video of Sparkles is a fake” public announcement, mind you, is enough to show ineptitude.

If that’s true, the IRS will have a field day with MM.  They, at least, when it comes to finances, have one job that they do and they do it with heartless precision.  The ‘geniuses’ in the BRF don’t have a clue.  Yet.

'Meghan Wears the Trousers': Inside Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's Partnership
Quote
Prince Harry’s road to lasting love hasn’t been easy.
“Being a royal has been a romantic curse for him,” says Princess Diana’s former biographer Andrew Morton, the author of Meghan: A Hollywood Princess. Previous girlfriends Chelsy Davy and Cressida Bonas struggled under the glare of the royal spotlight. But Meghan shines under it.
“She is definitely the one wearing the trousers in their relationship,” a royal insider tells PEOPLE in this week’s issue. “She is a strong, opinionated woman who has her own ideas about things, and that’s one of the things he loves about her.”
A star following seven seasons on the USA hit Suits, “Meghan was established before she met Harry,” says the insider. “That’s a first for the royal family. I don’t think Harry was ever going to marry a nice upper-class girl from the [English] counties—it’s just not him.”
Of course, Harry has always held his own and even as a kid could command a room as the impish counterpart to his more dutiful big brother, Prince William. “You’d be a guest at Kensington Palace, and you’d see a plastic rifle come round the corner and a boy dressed in an army uniform,” Morton says. “He used to help the chauffeurs clean the cars and turn hoses on people. He was cheeky.”
Meghan’s self-assurance has made Harry even more confident as they work their way in tandem through the crowds of people who have gathered to see them at every engagement. And Harry’s never been more relaxed or at ease than with his bride-to-be by his side – his hand in hers.
http://people.com/royals/inside-prince-harry-meghan-markles-partnership/_/

Felix made racial comments on his Tumblr to another person that got him closed down by the Tumblr authorities, and that's Harry and/or Meghan's doing or fault?!!

^^ And every single person who is in a serious relationship with any senior member of the BRF gets thoroughly investigated and cleared or not by Scotland Yard, MI5 or MI6 or whatever authority is necessary, including foreign police forces, so whatever the the ranters on the DM come up with those sort of statements just can't be backed up with any evidence.

In my view the evidence is coming out and whoever was investigating MM didn't do a thorough job if one book author can cover more ground than them.

I don't know what comment made Felix but I read the CDAN comments and I think that MM and her supporters have no grounds to cry racism. I also think that MM and her supporters OWE a HUGE apology to Cressida who has not been around the Hollywood block, yachts and casting couches yet she received a million times more smack for her controversies.


Title: Re: Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are engaged III
Post by: sandy on April 08, 2018, 01:20:26 am
Why is Cressida owed an apology? She's a grown up and decided to go into acting. Cressida is not a rival of MEghan since she and Harry broke up four years ago. Cressida DID associate with Hollywood types and had the misfortune to be in a photo with Weinstein after she appeared in Tulip Fever. Not saying anything happened but the murmers about him were out there and she should have steered clear of any photos with him. Meghan made no derogatory comments about Cressida. SO no apologies necessary. IMO. Cressida is out of the picture as far as Harry is concerned and is praised because she has a new relationship now.


Title: Re: Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are engaged III
Post by: Rosella on April 08, 2018, 01:32:35 am
What book author has said that Meghan used casting couch techniques or was a prostitute? If they did, and I don't know any that have, (and my gosh they'd need rock solid evidence) then they don't know much about the libel laws of Great Britain, if they hope to publish there, as they would I should think.

Why would Meghan supporters need to apologise to Cressida? Cressida was attacked in the columns of the DM by the same sort of ranters that attack Meghan. And many on forums who didn't like Cressida (I didn't mind her) also don't like Meghan. There are some Harry fans who wouldn't like whoever he wanted to marry, I've observed over the years.

And Meghan and/or Harry or KP or BP didn't have anything to do with Felix being forced offline. That was self-inflicted. The only one of the main trio of Skip/Felix/JD who has remained online consistently up until now is JD, and that is because she blocks people who disagree and constantly emphasises that her blog is speculative, in other words,  gossip.

If PH continues to go for the attention seeking socialites then he'll continue to not have his choices applauded. As they say, you can't meet a librarian in the bar. You've got to make the trip to the library to meet one.

I apologize or going OT and bringing Cressida into this thread. All I wanted to say is that she received a lot of criticism for everything she did and didn't do and back then the commenters were not insulted with the r card as it happens now. Instagrams were not deleted, tumblrs were not attacked or deleted. In that respect Cressida showed a lot more decorum and class than MM ever had and free speech was not censored under the hypocritical pretense that what
 is coming out first as rumors and blinds and then with proof is not music to M's ears.

I am confidently placing the blame for the deletion of the not pro-M IGs and the tumblrs on M directly because of
a. rumors how the statement of doom was pushed on H (with threats for unleashing her lawyers on H if he doesn't do anything about it) and
b. M is of the Same caliber, same family, as Sam and look how much time she needed to start threating lawsuits: the moment someone tweeted something unfavorable for her.

But Ariel --(a) we don't know any of the circumstances surrounding Harry's statement of November 2016. Harry has never spoken about it, Meghan hasn't, no officials employed at KP have ever spoken about it. So conclusions drawn about Meghan threatening Harry or KP with lawyers is pure supposition not based on fact, is it? If those assertions came from Tumblr sites then they are making two and two make five, and I might say, not for the first time!

(B) Calling people by racist names is a clear breach of Tumblr rules. Another Tumblr complained and Felix was taken offline. Unless you're suggesting that Meghan or Harry made Felix call someone by an unacceptable name why would it be Meghan or Harry's fault that he did?  None of the Tumblrs concerned are blaming this on Harry or Meghan, and surely, if the object was to silence those three then JD, who was the first to print stuff about Meghan from November 2016 and cooperated with NYC, would be the first to be taken offline?

Good points. It may seem that the tumblr sites are my Bible but I just skim through what they write and I missed the whole Felix comments or threats from other users so I can't comment on that. I have my own BS detectors and if something was offensive - tumblr could have asked for public apology or a detraction.  Deleting these blogs without a warning instead of intervening properly is by definition censorship of free speech.

I am also well aware that tumblr is an American company and they will not do something like that for a simple complaint. They'll do it after lawsuit threat and this is why I think that this is coming directly from the kitchen of M's lawyers, ot PH's lawyers or both. But most likely M's because there was lots of evidence and with pictures about her knowing and directing the secret pappz on the IG date.

The statement was written with americanisms. I infer from that that it was heavily influenced by Markle and her lawyers. In US suing people is a national sport second to football so, I trust my own instincts on that matter and I'll continue to hold that speculative opinion on what has happened back in November 2016.

I also don't think that Sam and M are that different so I learn quite a lot about M and her upbringing by seeing how her family behaves. I personally abhor people who say that "Oh, this is only half-sister, or half-brother, or step-sister, or step-brother". I really do. These people have no idea what family means. Yes, the Markles are a but trashy and gold diggy but this is who Markle grew up with so ....

Jason Knauf, the Communications Secretary at KP for the Cambridges and Prince Harry for several years, is an American. He is in charge of their PR and media communications and was in 2016. 


Title: Re: Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are engaged III
Post by: Ariel on April 08, 2018, 08:38:41 am
I still think that M has more involvement in this that meets the eye. For example, would Jason put BRF's best foot forward if they announce the cupcake company that is to do the royal cake and in the same memo announce how M's blog was awesome. I don't think so.


Title: Re: Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are engaged III
Post by: Rosella on April 08, 2018, 10:35:30 am
Jason probably doesn't do every single one of KPs  communications, but the KP statement of November 2016 was almost certainly one of his. I remember people talking about the Americanisms in it at the time and saying that it sounded like him.


Title: Re: Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are engaged III
Post by: Ariel on April 08, 2018, 09:51:13 pm
Let's say that Jason wrote the statement. In this case we should give him a Pulitzer for the intimate knowledge of the words and feelings that MM would use, the sentence structures that she uses, which are evident in her articles, listed on her wiki. We also need to applaud him that for months working for the Cambs and Harry his country of origin didn't come up as issue on the KP memos and twitter but slipped only this one time.  :laugh:

Meghan Markle was back in the States this week to take a major step in becoming a permanent UK citizen ahead of her wedding to Prince Harry.

Eyewitnesses tell us Meghan attempted to be as incognito as possible -- with 4 bodyguards in tow -- when she entered the VFS Global UK Visa Application Centre Thursday in Chicago. We're told she was there to finalize her application for a UK visa.

The whole thing only took about 10 minutes, and the entire office was cleared for her. We're told she was friendly with the staff. As for her disguise -- shades and a White Sox cap to blend in with locals.

Meghan forked over about $1,500, maybe a little more, for premium processing -- so she should get her visa within a few days ... according to our sources.

Based on the visa application criteria, she most likely submitted for a family visa, and applied as a partner or spouse. That visa requires her to confirm all previous marriages, and her plans to marry or become a civil partner within 6 months of arriving in the UK.

We can hear her now ... "Maybe you've heard of my fiance."

After 6 months, Meghan can go for permanent citizenship, which Kensington Palace has said she'll do. No fast track, though ... that process can take up to 3 years.

Thanks to the British weather, California girl Meghan Markle has spent months here wrapped up.

But scan pictures of her in the U.S. over the past ten years and you'll discover her real style staple: the strappy sandal, with feet and toes firmly on show.

It's a far more glamorous look than sister-in-law-to-be Kate's signature nude court, and, intriguingly, it's exceptionally revealing.

For there's a growing belief that our toes and soles give a glimpse into our character and motivations, much like palm-reading.

It's either photoshopped, from high school or middle school (it's not uncommon for the cap and gowns used for senior pictures taken for the yearbook to be a different color than the ones used for the actual ceremony), or she graduated from a university other than Northwestern. I attended grad school in that area and have several friends who did their undergrad and grad studies there. Northwestern graduation robes are purple.

Samantha Grant believes all family members must be asked 'out of respect'.
'At issue is not a matter of closeness as more than 1,000 complete strangers are invited,' she tweeted this week.

Team Meghan' helps Markle prepare for life as a princess
Aides juggle wedding plans with charity meetings as they carve out a royal role for bride-to-be


As a team of professionals at Kensington Palace oversees the metamorphosis of Meghan Markle from American actor to British princess, they may have squandered one useful gift: her dowry.

“As I understand it, there have been an extra 1m hits on the royal Kensington Palace website as a result of Meghan,” said Andrew Morton, the biographer of Diana, Princess of Wales; of Wallis Simpson – the last US divorcee to marry into the family; and now of Markle.

Once her romance with Prince Harry was confirmed, the former star of legal drama Suits shut down The Tig, her lifestyle website, and bid farewell to 1.9 million Instagram followers. “Talk about frittering away a constituency,” said Morton, whose book Meghan: The Hollywood Princess is published this week. “In the old days, a bride brought a dowry. She brought 1.9 million Instagram followers, all of whom have been cast aside.”

Palace aides might look at another American princess, Sarah Butler, who, like Markle, studied international relations and married into royalty. Now HRH Princess Sarah Zeid of Jordan, she advocates on mother and child rights, harnessing her social media power to disseminate her message, Morton said.

What causes Markle will adopt once she becomes Her Royal Highness on her 19 May wedding is the focus for “Team Meghan” at Kensington Palace, where the 36-year-old bride-to-be is at the vortex of planning for the nuptials as well as her work diary and the couple’s new home.

At her side is right-hand woman Amy Pickerill, 32, a Nottingham University history graduate, who worked for the Royal Bank of Scotland press office before joining the Kensington Palace press team dedicated to promoting the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry.

Now assistant private secretary, working solely for Markle, Pickerill can often be seen relieving her new mistress of the bouquets, cards and gifts bestowed during public walkabouts. She looks after Markle’s official programme and diary, briefs about events and individuals and helps ease her into her role as the fourth patron of the Royal Foundation set up by William, Kate and Harry.

The real, practical value of the institution of marriage is that it’s a stress test: if your relationship can survive planning the wedding, you’ll probably make it to the finish line.

Of all the many nightmares involved in this dreaded process, drawing up the guest list may be the worst. Do it in public, like Harry ‘n’ Meghan, and there’s not just cousin Mavis’s private butthurt to worry about but the rubbing in of the fact that Barack Obama, Donald Trump and Theresa May are NFI’d. There are six categories of guests that can cause real difficulty:

People you’re related to, but who you *despise*

You’re supposed to invite these ones. It’s kind of the form. Don’t be like the bride I know who caused all sorts of difficulties by asking her husband to uninvite his father on the eve of the wedding. And if you have a big family, you have to be very careful about picking and choosing cousins: branches of families tend to come as a package. If there are relatives you really, really can’t stand, the trick is to invite them, then take revenge with the seating arrangement.https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2018/apr/11/wedding-guest-prince-harry-meghan

But how many disliked relatives run to the media to trash the bride to be? Samantha takes things to extremes. And is self sabotaging. IMO

Both her half siblings have kids and grandkids. Should they not be deemed eligible to attend the tackfest of a wedding? M also has black relatives on her mother's side. Shall she not invite them too at her second time /maybe third time/ white wedding cause per the rumors the moment she started making more money she forgot her association with the Doria side of the family.

And while we are at the subject of who deserves to be at the wedding by all accounts MM is not deserving to be on the list too not just her family members.

I have not heard about what's happening with her mother's family. Samantha is not part of the group and trashed Doria to the media.  There is probably no love lost between Doria and Samantha. It is her second wedding. If it were her third, the royals certainly would have divulged that and Meghan would have had to. It's the Internet age and this could be very easily detected. From what I read Doria and Meghan are close, Doria seems to be a private person who does not like media attention and wants to lead her day to day life without cameras around.  Meghan is the bride, she of course "deserves" to be there.  There would be no wedding without a bride and groom.

Are we sure she deserves to be there...
Doria has a family too. Why not invite that side of the family if there's such an importance and virtue placed on 'not talking to the press'. Samantha's daughter praised M in an interview a few months ago. Does this niece not deserve to be invited? Do 1200 people who have zero personal connection with either M or PH deserve more to be invited to this tackfest than the actual families?

Doria's family could be there. There has been nothing in the media to say that they were not. Samantha does not like her.

St George's Chapel has a seating capacity of 800. Harry and Meghan have invited 600 guests. Apart from Army and Invictus people and those from other charities that Harry has already worked with, the vast majority will be family and friends (including the huge extended family Harry has, Spencers etc) plus family friends Charles would want to invite.
Also to be given some space there will be BBC cameramen, lighting, sound people and the commentators.

There is no way that 1,200 people, whether total strangers or not, could be fitted into St George's. The people around the country who applied to see the wedding will be outside in Windsor Great Park.

As for Samantha, she hasn't spoken to many members of her family for years and is completely estranged from her own two children. It's extremely doubtful that she knows who is going and who isn't. We don't know whether any of Doria's family will be there. The majority haven't spoken to the media, and IMO we aren't likely to know until the wedding whether any will be there or not. Samantha did nothing but disrespect and insult her half sister for months. IMO if she expected an invite to her wedding, and IMO I don't think she did, not really, then she is more completely deluded than I thought. The media just don't take her seriously any more either.

Did Meghan and her ex split up over a pasta dish? Actress dated her Prince Harry lookalike for two years but they parted ways after 'arguing' over an Italian meal they served their friends
Quote
They were together for almost two years but the laid-back restaurateur – who bears a striking resemblance to Harry – began to tire of her alleged 'prima donna-like behaviour', a well-placed source told the Daily Mail.
Mrs Vitiello and Meghan remained in touch by text and email, and Meghan sent a message telling her she was dating someone else before the world learned she was romancing Harry.
Meghan didn't reveal who that 'someone' was, but shortly before her relationship with Harry became public she asked permission to visit the chef's parents. They were away so the meeting didn't take place, but Mrs Vitiello has no doubt that Meghan had intended to tell them about Harry 'out of respect'.

These people will be in the grounds of Windsor Castle - not in Windsor Great Park. They will be able to sit or stand and see the arrivals and departure as happens with the Garter Ceremony.

The Great Park is outside the grounds of the castle.

So in other words the Fail, having not succeeded in getting Corey or his parents to say anything nasty about Meghan, scratched around and used an unnamed source who came up with second or possibly third hand information and some stupid story about pasta dishes, and Prima Donna like behaviour.

Corey's mother in fact seems to contradict the stories emanating from Tumblr about Meghan cheating on him and lying about it. She got on well with Meghan and they texted for some time.

Throwing punches through flattery seems to be the best strategy with this PR weaponized woman. He is very cordial at the same time 2+2=4. He was going to propose, she was living with him and ... within a few weeks she went on an African safari with another man... Only the blind can't see what he's hinting at...

Same scenario - MM 'loved' Trevor till she got from him the role she wanted and then the hockey players became known within weeks. Then she 'loved' Corey but the moment her got her introduced to the hifh society she wanted in - she 'kind of', 'sort of', 'accidentally', 'in a blind date' met the next victim love of her life.


Title: Re: Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are engaged III
Post by: Rosella on April 14, 2018, 08:54:53 am
Where in that very short exchange with the Fail reporter who was digging for dirt did Corey say that he was going to propose to Meghan? Corey's mother stated that they had been broken up several months before Meghan called (she speculated) to tell them about Harry. Corey has moved on, and he and his mother have nothing but nice things to say about Meghan, to the Fail's reporter's obvious disappointment. There is no hint of aggravation in anything either of them said.

And the reporter stated that Corey had had several socialite girlfriends before Meghan. People who moved in the right circles, including an older woman. No hint of disapproval from the reporter there.

Also, Morton wasn't able to get to Trevor who has never spoken publicly against her either. And it's extremely doubtful that the Fail will get there either. And, got Morton's book on my Kindle. It's clear from the rest of the book that Morton quite likes Meghan though he's never spoken to her, as he praises her in several instances. BTW there was one hockey player Meghan was said to be close to, just one. And he and Meghan both vehemently denied that they were anything other than friends. No one has proof otherwise either.

In any case both are in their thirties so there would be a history of previous relationships for both of them, which would be written about in future biographies. It's their life story. Even if Harry opted to marry someone 10 years younger, in this day and age she would have had a history of past relationships and not be sheltered IMO.

EDEN CONFIDENTIAL: Loyal or royal? Friends of Prince Harry have a decision to make after a fellow Old Etonian is getting married on the same day
Quote
They are spoilt for choice, as one of their fellow Old Etonians is getting married the same day — and refuses to change the date.
Fund manager George Birch Reynardson, who was in Harry’s year at Eton and shares many of the same chums, had already booked Saturday, May 19, for his wedding to Sophia Davies, a pal of the Prince’s ex-girlfriend Cressida Bonas.
George and Sophia are now said to see the clash as a ‘royalty or loyalty’ challenge for their friends.

Often males ditch girlfriends and females ditch boyfriends. It is a rare feat for a couple to meet as teens and be faithful and ultimately get married. Of course Meghan and Harry had breakups previously. Maybe Meghan made the lucky escape. If it's not meant to be, it's not meant to be.

Meghan Markle's Finances Will Get More Complicated When She Marries Prince Harry
Quote
Here’s just a short list of the things she’ll have to report to the IRS as an expat with a spouse who is a non-U.S. citizen, according to The Wall Street Journal:
Any tiara or diamond bracelet Queen Elizabeth gives—or even just loans—her.
The value of her half of the free rent of the cottage she shares with Prince Harry at Kensington Palace.
Any debit or credit card she has linked to Prince Harry’s bank account with more than $10,000 in it.
A vacation at one of the Queen’s castles (yes, really).
“IRS agents are highly aware of these rules,” Dianne Mehany, a tax lawyer with Caplin & Drysdale, told The Wall Street Journal.
The scrutiny Markle will have to endure from the IRS might even make it worth it for her to renounce her U.S. citizenship, some think.

Meghan Markle's family STILL don't know if dad Thomas will walk her down the aisle
A cousin of the royal bride-to-be says her family are "all quite saddened and hurt" that Megan could be the only Markle at the ceremony



Royal bride-to-be Meghan Markle poses with her dad, uncle and ­cousins for a happy family birthday picture in 2000.

But 18 years on, none of the relatives around her are smiling.

Because with five weeks to go to the Big Day, it looks like Meghan could be the ONLY member of the Markle family at her wedding to Prince Harry.

Even her dad Thomas, the man who is poised to walk her down the aisle at Windsor Castle, has no idea whether he will be there.

And invites already dished out to the couple’s celeb pals, from the Beckhams and Spice Girls to tennis star Serena Williams and Made In Chelsea’s Millie Mackintosh, have only served to deepen her family’s anger.

Her cousin Trish Gallup reveals today she has even written to Clarence House, enclosing the picture on these pages, asking why the family has been snubbed.

But staff turned her Fedex package away. She also wrote in desperation to Prince Harry through an address she found online, sending the same pictures – but has had no reply.

Now some family members are urging Meghan’s 73-year-old dad to demand answers from Buckingham Palace – and to find out if they have all been snubbed because of the controversial behaviour of some of her relatives.

Her older half-sister Samantha Grant, 53, is writing a tell-all book about the 36-year-old future Princess. And half-brother Thomas Jr, 51, faced firearm charges in January last year for allegedly holding a gun to his girlfriend’s head during a drunken argument in Oregon. The case was later dropped.

But Meghan’s uncle Michael, 78, said other family members deserved to be there – especially her dad.

“I talked to Thomas last week and he didn’t seem to know what the problem was,” said Meghan’s uncle Michael, 78, who lives in Palm Beach, Florida.

“He told me he hasn’t heard anything and he didn’t even know if he would be walking Meghan down the aisle.

“He’s very private, but I don’t see how you can be the father of the bride and be a shrinking violet. I think he has to step up and I think he’s willing to do that.”

Michael, a former US government worker who helped secure Meghan a college internship in Argentina, added: “I don’t know what the hell is going on.

PS: Westminster was awash with talk last week that Michelle Obama is the missing link in the mystery of how Harry met Meghan – and that her lack of invitation to the wedding has left the couple fuming.
It emerged last week the Obamas had been left off the list – put together by the Palace – and my source says: ‘Michelle had a hand in introducing Harry to Meghan.
'In his mind there wouldn’t be a wedding without her and that is reason enough to invite them. He was not happy such a legitimate reason was ignored.’

Are there any members of her family with some real clear mainstream employment that doesn't involve fringe activities?  Nothing about her is clear.  Nothing.

I mean, I get it that Harry must find this very different.  Exotic even.  But, he comes from a highly structured upbringing with defined lineage and expectations.  I fear this devil-may-care free spirit bit and a lack of real grounding in her history will blend well in the long run.  She has no experience in the solid footing of family commitment.  She's cut and run too many times for my taste.

^Good point.  But, his behavior was not what I meant.  Unlike Sparkles, he had a rock solid, immovable institution behind him as a safety and protective net his whole life.  He knew what expectations were (whether he followed them or not is another matter), what his future was likely to be and so on.  That is a structured life and bears no resemblance to anyone outside of his circle.

To live that life with him requires a certain kind of understanding and acceptance of its restrictions as well or it will be a challenge.  I don't believe that MM is genuine, generous enough nor self-denying to blend well at all.  

From the outside, it looks like a world of nonstop privileges and ease.  And, to some degree it is.  But, there's a fiercely monotonous and limiting flip side that bears no resemblance to the life in which she has been reared and trained to survive.  In addition, she has had no experience nor examples with sticking it out when it gets tough.  I see no evidence of any portion of her upbringing that is reflective of any non-disposable tradition.  That's all the BRF is is Tradition.  

They are beyond domesticated and she is feral.  That's a problem.

Harry was left to his own devices (staying with servants and Dyer, who was not the best mentor) after his mother died.
he was described as a little rascal since when diana was alive... but then there wasnt much focus on him, there's a letter of diana saying as the boys were doing well but harry was always in some trouble at school... he was that child who needed lots of discipline and "NO(s)" but he obviously didnt get any of that

DIana was concerned Harry as the spare was not paid attention to as much as William was. For instance the Queen Mum paid almost all her attention on William because he is the "heir." Diana from what I read was more firm with the boys than Charles was.

Harry and Willy both have the same taste in women as their dear old dad. Bad looking, overbearing and social climbing.

‘I think she’ll bolt. She bolted before’: Outspoken feminist icon Germaine Greer predicts doom for Meghan and Harry’s marriage as she slams the royal family
Quote
Feminist author Germaine Greer has shared her bleak prediction for the upcoming royal wedding, claiming Meghan Markle will 'bolt' from her marriage to Prince Harry out of boredom.
Speaking to 60 Minutes, the outspoken activist slammed the Suits actress, implying she was marrying for money and status, but had given up too much of herself for the relationship to work.

So 60 Minutes chose a feminist republican who doesn't believe in marriage to comment on a forthcoming Royal wedding. Now, I wonder why they did that!  :laugh:

Germaine Greer says a lot of things tongue in cheek. She also makes pronouncements like not returning to Australia again unless there is a treaty with the Australian population. That was years ago and she's been back to Australia dozens of times since then.

As for bolting--Germaine didn't do a bad job of that herself so she should know all about it. Her only marriage, to a builder in 1968, lasted only a few weeks. They finally divorced in 1973.

Lots of paralels with MM and Germaine's political views, allegedly for MM, feminist aspirations and failed marriages and relationships.

The only thing I don't agree is that MM will bolt... well, not before the title, the citizenship, the bag money that I have no doubt that she feels entitled to. Just like the pasta recipe that Corey created but she claimed that she 'dreamt it'

Royal weddings have not always gotten applause. Back in 1981 feminists were carrying signs "don't do it Di."  No surprises with Germaine.

To all Yanks, at a grocery store check out near you, Star Magazine has as its cover title:  Meghan's tears:  WEDDING IN CRISIS!    Harry's getting cold feet!  Their families are at war!  The old-fashioned Queen humiliated!

 :cookie:

The gist of the story is Megs' embarrassing family, the release of Megs' nude/topless photos, and Harry meeting up with Cressida.  It explains the absence of Harry and Megs on Easter as Megs having fled the palace four days before to go to her mother in L.A.

Naturally, Megs' most ardent fans will dismiss this as tabloid trash.  However, it is telling that the tabs are negative toward her, rather than building her up as a dream princess at a time when they so desperately want one.

^ Harry and Megs don't have to say anything.  It's common knowledge that Harry has not met his intended's daddy.  That is way weird.   There continue to be conflicting reports as to whether her daddy will travel to GB to give her away.  That is weird as well.  We know her family is embarrassing.  We have seen her topless photos.  We know of her past marriage and the fact that her "friends" don't seem to have much good to say about her.  Does that mean the wedding is off?  Probably not.  But I doubt things are unfolding as Megs had planned and envisioned.


Title: Re: Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are engaged III
Post by: sandy on April 17, 2018, 06:32:56 pm
I'm not so sure it is "common knowledge." Harry never confirmed or denied that he saw her father. It might have been a private visit. There is also the telephone and Skype to connect with someone in this day and age. I know Samantha is embarrassing but I know nothing about the parents. Doria seems a decent person. Topless photos are not rare events in the royal family these days. I'll leave it at that. The "friends" are not friends if they trash her to the media. I don't know what Meghan expected but she is destined to be a royal bride in about a month.

Meghan's social climbing ways are embarrassing in themselves. When you don't get along with your family and closest former friends come and expose lies and deceit. You can stop being friends with people, but when they expose said friend's *rap f something's wrong. They stopped being friends after an out of the blue break-up and I recall some told they didn't recognize Meghan anymore. The problem isn't something big that Meghan's done, it's all the small things, the little things that a lot of people are willing to excuse, but that altogether reveal more about a person than a whole book written on them. Like trying to pass off her famous chef's pasta dish as her criation, comes to mind.

The only royal family's topless I can recall happened in the BRF and perhaps in Monaco (though I'm not sure of the last one) and just because it happened a couple of times, don't make it alright, excusable or a desirable circumstance.
She will be a bride, she will get what she thinks she wanted, and just like Kate, she'll realise that what she came for isn't what she's going to get.

Kate has it made. Excuses were constantly made for her poor work ethic. though the tide may turn...

It remains to be seen if Meghan will have a better work ethic. Though that would not be difficult if Kate is competition.

Cause her mom is black and that one drop rule. she's of mixed race and she  doesn't  claim either or, but that one drop rule she's black

The one-drop rule is a social and legal principle of racial classification that was historically prominent in the United States asserting that any person with even one ancestor of sub-Saharan-African ancestry ("one drop" of black blood) is considered black

^^ It's the PC thing to do. I totally respect when someone is half/ half (whatever race or ethnicity) and identifies with one side more, but to exclusively feel like one side and downplay the other isn't okay imo. What if she saw herself as predominantly white and described as "white"? There'd be hell to pay. We do know however that she presents herself as what is most convenient to any given situation and she could get away with it so far, I guess by now she's to well-known to back out.

I also feel like there is a lot of pandering, like all these commonwealth appearances, the Winds aren't stupid, she's a good image to squash independence talks and talks of breaking off (some are republics already, some are not). On the question of some days ago why she can attend stuff (related to commonwealth ceremonies) that no bf/ gf/ finace(e) could attend before, and this is why. She's using the Winds to climb, live the good life and try to be her idol Diana, and the Winds are for sure using her for all those people who aren't English in the UK and outside as "image upgrade" and to cement their standing in this oh so diversified modern world.
A two way street of using each other imo.

^^^ I liked Julie on that show! She was nice and I think spot on with a lot of what she said at the time (re: the bytchfights on that show and that Caroline Stanbury was envious of her title, which most people didn't get and tarred Julie for saying so, mostly Americans, not at all understanding how backward the UK still is with titles and how titles open all kinds of doors, even if titled but poor, which not even super rich can open - it's always about "breeding", "pedigree" and titles - always - and never ever about money; money can never get you as far in the UK as even the lowest title can).

^ Interesting and I fully get that notion, though I feel like that is mostly in the US so. In the US I feel like everyone who isn't very "white" is instantly "ethnic", e.g. in Europe Spaniards and Italians can be very dark but are always seen as "white", in the US they'd be "of colour" very quickly, though Italians are usually seen as "white" in the US based on culture, but not by their looks, they get often mistaken for "coloured" people/ latinos. I especially dislike when Mexican Americans make fun of "white people", because to me they are "white" too. Welsh people can look incredibly dark as well and could pass as Italians... I'm straying way off, but I hope you all get what I mean!

I don't like mounds of hair that has to be flicked back. Don't like it on Kate, don't like it on Meghan. I loved the bag and the shoes were great IMO, though I've never been able to wear killer heels!

I'd rather she had kept the blazer on inside. She did drape it round her shoulders for a while then took it off. I didn't mind the dress. It was very summer/casual but this event is a Youth Forum, not a terribly formal setting. It was also apparently the hottest day of the year so far, and even Eugenie, who was also there, left off the tights and wore a casual summer dress.

'This is a problem when you're living in a fantasy world at the expense of creating real relationships.

How Meghan’s unprecedented outing shows the Royal Family’s confidence in her

Meghan Markle’s appearance at the Commonwealth Youth Forum in London on Wednesday (April 18) is yet another example of the confidence the Royal Family has in her to carry out official royal duties. High-profile events, such as those held during Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM) week, are usually reserved for senior members of the Royal Family, making Meghan a rare royal fiancée to be invited to attend. For example, fellow Windsor women like the Duchess of Cambridge didn't carry out any official royal duties on behalf of the Queen until after their weddings.

Dr Sue Varma, a psychiatrist based at New York University Langone Medical Center, stressed it can also cause people to live in a 'fantasy world'.
She added: 'When you start socializing with people that you don't know, when you don't have a reciprocal relationship, this is called parasocial. It's one sided.

'This is a problem when you're living in a fantasy world at the expense of creating real relationships.

'People become obsessed with celebrities and a lot of times they start having body image issues, they start feeling like they need to get plastic surgery.'

Meghan for sure.  :cookie:


But she has a real relationship with Harry. He proposed to her. She did not make it up.

The Royal Family's secret weapon: How Meghan is launching a Commonwealth charm offensive
Quote
With more engagements focused on the Commonwealth planned it appears Meghan could be the Royal Family’s secret weapon to appeal to the global network who will this week decide  the Queen's sucessor as head of the Commonwealth.

This whole engagement must be a plan to tick people off. She looked unhinged today and of course not following royal protocol that lets Harry be the lead.

'She's not genuine like Diana': Meghan Markle's brother says she's a 'phoney' and is 'tearing her family apart' by not inviting them to the royal wedding
Quote
Mr Markle, from Oregon, accused his sibling of turning her back on the family and said she is 'falsely' trying to portray herself as the new Princess Diana.

He told the Daily Mirror: 'She's clearly forgotten her roots. It's torn my entire family apart. Meg likes to portray herself as a humanitarian, a people's person and a charitable person but she is none of those things to her family.

'She is giving the greatest ­performance of her life. She is acting phoney. I've read that Meg wants to be like Diana. Diana was worshipped by everyone in the world. She was loved for the right reasons.

The heads of the commonwealth are at Buckingham Palace with Harry without the celebrity in attendance. They’ll decide tomorrow  if Charles will take over as the head of the commonwealth. Maybe they wanted Harry but now he’s attached to Meghan, they’ll have to consider Charles.

That's not what Tom Markle first said about her, before his gun incident, when he was first interviewed by the British tabloids and sold all those ancient photos to them of Meghan as a child. He was all compliments and excited about being invited to the wedding. Samantha too was very complimentary, in between the rantings and insults. They were expecting invitations to the wedding. It's when they realised these weren't forthcoming that the mood changed.

^^ There has been speculation about Charles succeeding his mother has symbolic Head of the Commonwealth for at least four or five years (I first read about the possibility in 2012.) It hasn't been directly discussed until now because the member thought it was distasteful to consider the Queen's death. I've never heard that Harry was in contention for the role, and it seems unlikely that he ever has been IMO.

Post by: meememe on April 19, 2018, 02:20:46 pm
The first time I heard any mention of Charles succeeding his mother as Head of the Commonwealth was back in the 1970s when I was still at school and we were learning about it. Then it was accepted that he would but in the mid-90s it was pointed out that it wasn't automatic but that the monarch was the logical choice as otherwise there is no unifying figure to keep the organisation together.

The fear I heard then was that a rotating headship would see the organisation collapse due to infighting when the leaders weren't sympathetic e.g. if Pakistan was the rotating head India wouldn't be co-operative and vice-versa. The same 'infighting' could happen amongst the Caribbean and African countries as well as what would happen if a country was due to have the headship and they were suspended at that time?

This is the fate of the brides of Will and Harry, to be compared to Diana. When Charlotte grows up she will be compared to her grandmother. Plus any future granddaughters and granddaughters in law. The media plays this to the hilt.


The brother is bitter, and I don't see Meghan going to the media and trashing him or Samantha. He is the one IMO that looks bad.

I think if both had not gone to the media, their invitations would have been guaranteed. They both shot themselves in the foot as far as I'm  concerned.

Be the Change.  Walk the Talk.  Forgive and Heal.

In families, a person can reach out and be rejected flat out. It's something that is risky since being hurt by rejection could be the outcome.

If Tom Jr and Samantha wanted invites they should not have gone to the media. IMO.

Meghan Markle: Prince Harry bride reveals SECRET romantic dates in unearthed interview

While Prince Philip, 96, is said to be a fan of Meghan, it is believed his second oldest son, Prince Andrew, 58, certainly isn’t.
The Duke of York is said to have displayed a noticeable dislike of Meghan compared to the rest of the royals.
“She had a cold reception from the Duke of York,” the source said.

She really is a narc to think that everyone should like her.

The siblings were sucking up to M at first, yes (apart from Sam's compliments and then rants mixed since beginning), hoping for an invite, and we don't know thei relationship exactly, for all I know they don't deserve and aren't owed an invitation, blood and shared DNA doesn't oblige anyone to anything. That all still does not mean that Sam & the brother are lying and not telling the truth & simply as it is. Going by what others have revealed about M, I'd say her siblings' accounts fit very well into the overall picture.

At this stage she would be accused of hypocrisy if she invites Tom and Samantha who continuously trash her and Samantha is trying to achieve "fame" by her wishes for a book. Nobody deserves this sort of treatment, two siblings running to the media. and Meghan does not deserve this. Samantha even trashed Doria and I for one don't believe she deserves such nastiness. She seems to me light years better than Samantha.

Quote
And Meghan Markle was at Prince Harry's side once again tonight as the couple attended a Commonwealth reception at the Royal Aeronautical Society, just a stone's throw from Buckingham Palace.

The royal bride-to-be opted for a £266 'Jackie O' dress from Black Halo with stilettos and a pair of delicate spiral diamond earrings from Canadian jeweller Birks.
Earlier on Thursday afternoon, Harry was joined by his brother the Duke of Cambridge for the CHOGM formal opening event at Buckingham Palace - and the brothers will return to the royal residence once again tonight for a glittering state banquet.

Not exactly. This is her family and she does owe it to them to send an invite IF she has ANY family values. No one's family is perfect but M's dismissal of her own family is beyond cruel and I cannot accept it. I also cannot accept that she's not inviting her own father to come to the wedding and walk hr down the aisle. In those years of private Catholic school paid by him didn't she read the 10 commandments at least once.

^^ I do get that outlook as well, but still I remain with my view that no one's owed an invitation. At least not when there's been a falling-out, no contact, fights, and other legitimate reasons, where the relationship has been (irreparably) fractured beforehand.

Not inviting the father is definitely a massive bytch move though. Her parents are the only people imo who are owed an invitation (in their specific case), he and Doria gave her her education, he's her father after all and supposedly she has no beef with him and he didn't go to the press, they are said to have a good relationship as far as I know and that H skyped with him. But time will tell, I'm not 100% sure he hasn't been invited, it's what Murkles's half-siblings claim and I've read the father isn't in touch with them either. And he was papped reading that book on Britain, I think it was his prep for when he comes over to walk her down the aisle, him checking out the sights etc.

Btw, guess what Jess Mulroney wore the other day... Hideous Vic Beckham style trousers that are so long they sweep on the floor, like Murkles's in Scotland. Looked frikkin hideous. Those style trousers just never ever look good (least of all in rain, with mud on the hem!) :ick:

The siblings are trouble makers. No way would she not invite her father, unless he is ill and can't travel. I don't believe those siblings, they are troublemakers. I think there is more likely a rift between Samantha and Tom/their father than Meghan and father. Doria will be there, she is still working and appears to be in good health

Here's Why Meghan Markle and Prince Harry Celebrated When Their Cover Was Blown


Meghan Markle had just wrapped up filming three episodes of her TV series, Suits, when her boyfriend came into town to visit her. But given who her boyfriend was, these visits were a little complicated. She had been in a long-distance relationship with Prince Harry, shuttling back and forth from London to Toronto, where the series filmed, as their relationship grew more serious.

While Harry was in Toronto, they'd enjoyed privacy. They were able to go to Soho House for drinks, and hang out with friends Jessica and Ben Mulroney. But most of the time, they hung out at Meghan's three-bedroom home in the affluent neighborhood of Seaton Village, where she'd make him pasta and her signature roast chicken.

During that visit, in October 2016, there was no sign a royal was around, aside from an SUV with plain-clothes police officers parked on the street. But try as they might to keep things hush-hush, their secret was about to get out, and loudly.

The two were together in her house when Harry got a call from his communications director, Jason Knauf. Knauf warned that news of their relationship was about to run in the Sunday Express. Their relationship would officially be public. When Harry hung up, the couple poured themselves some red wine, and toasted.

Perhaps having an invisible set of in-laws as opposed to a infiltrating set like the Midds is refreshing for the RF. After this wedding, I can't imagine anyone will pay attention to her family let alone invite them to the Royal Ascot or anything like that nor will they expect it. So that maybe a plus. And now that time has passed I now think Harry is more comfortable with an older more experienced type of sexual woman who is flashy and wants the attention he commands. Plus she likes to be political although I doubt she is that remarkable in her thoughts alone without someone helping her out to map out her agenda. But people will give her the direction. So far she has been pretty lame in her political speaking about woman's rights. That includes before PH. She wants to be an activist but I don't think she thinks her statements through. Prime example is don't find your voice, use it. You need direction before speaking out. DUH. But I predict no one will really listen to them in terms of doing what they say. So they will just be celebrity attendants at events which is fine. People will like that who attend them.

All in all, one has to wait and see what transpires in the future. Andrew is angry that these nobody low life background women are in the RF and getting more attention and praise than he or his daughters. That is it. He would like Charles's family exterminated and take over. Unfortunately, he is in the wrong century. I think PP likes anyone who is attractive. I thought he liked PD at first.

I finally say good luck to them.


Title: Re: Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are engaged III
Post by: Ariel on April 20, 2018, 04:19:33 pm
I don't believe that PP likes Meghan. He spent his entire life fitting in with the Brits and he's a prince. Meghan on the other hand is a nobody with demands and attitudes. I would imagine that he's not that fond of her as M's PR is making him to be but I can't put words into his mouth.

As for M - I still don't see her as fitting in or appropriate in any way. I don't think that she's a celebrity either. Maybe in her head she is but to put a rumored pavement walker next to women who deserve to be on that list with their actions is stupid in my books. Not that polls or top lists are believable any more.

MM's only real cause is posing for the merched goods and I hope that's not inspiring to impressionable young ladies because MM sends the wrong message to the world. Even in ANTM - they sacked the phony contestants who were fighting dirty to get to the top.

As for her political views, please, what political views. Her former friend praised her for checking the hotels and standing up to the bad ones but ... but... what about Ivanka Trump. She praised her, she merched for her even though since day one there are rumors that the shoes and the bags are made in a sweatshop in China.

I think he is cordial and polite to her, why would he dislike her, she's joining the family and marrying his grandson. Prince Philip was once a "nobody" although he was from royal bloodlines his parents were exiled, his mother was institutionalized and his uncles more or less helped raise him. He had little money and George and Elizabeth were not that fond of him and even told their daughter and Philip they would wait a year, so perhaps she may change her mind. He may identify with Meghan because he was poor and did not have a strong family background. What demands does Meghan make? I never heard she did. I don't think she or Harry had much of a say on the wedding date selected.

She is not a pavement walker nor ever has been and I say this because there is no proof except perhaps from Tumblr folk saying things that some may believe. But there is no proof..

The royals can't be political, but it seems to me that her future father in law is, and to a degree her future husband and her future brother in law. This will need to be curbed.

I don't trust her former friend (emphasis on former) as a reliable source. She seems to have an axe to grind.

IMO, I think that Meghan’s attachment to the royal family has been part to break through political correctness to get people to open up and state what’s really on their minds. People are now very vocal about how they see the royal family and what they want it to reflect with the times. They’re seen much less perfect now and not something out of the fairytale books that Wills and Waity’s pr was trying to push down the public’s throats for years until the public got fed up and started to call Wills lazy and Kate back to being called Waity as she still didn’t pull her weight years after the wedding.
The commonwealth has countries that see being gay very taboo. Harry and Meghan’s tour of the U.K. highlighted the charaties that are helping the LGBT community cope with Aids and safe sex. The homeless issues have also been highlighted. I think that’s why Harry told those young leaders at the reception for the summit that he’ll make issues with the LGBT community part of his work as youth embassador of the commonwealth. Sad, but in some minds, her being bi-racial and about to become a member of the royal family gives the royal family cache with brown and black people throughout the U.K. and the commonwealth.
IMO, I think now that Charles has gotten the Commonwealth job, I think that Meghan can now get the boot. She’s not an asset but a hindrance and a liability and the press is starting to tell the truth about her.
Since this whole fiasco started on social media to get attention for herself as well as other women who’ve tried to use other members of the royal family for the same thing, this thing with Meghan has given the royal family a foothold on social media where they can quickly shut down/debunk rumors and other people who tries to use the platform to use the royal family for their own gain. I suspect though that Meghan will be the example of what happens to people who use the royal family.
Of course I could be totally wrong and this crap will go to a marriage, but I really don’t see that and expect her to be gone now. She’s bad news and a fake person who’s not interested in anything or anyone but herself.  :cookie:
^odd, like a true spook. He was saying that bad pictures of Meghan will be released now. Who knows if that’s true or not.

In all fairness, many women all over the world would love this marriage for many reasons. And there are many who would not. She is going to have ultimate attention and riches from all over the world, something her inner nature craves, she likes his type of looks, look at her ex husband, and she is controlling him to the hilt. And she does want to do good and gets to in a very grand, expensive partying way. So why wouldn't she want to marry him just because is PH of the British RF. It is so obvious and they get along. Again, she drops things in her life, so she may drop him as she is set for life no matter what. So wait and see the show.

Meghan’s whole image is manufactured by her former pr company as stated in that 2 part interview her former agent gave to the press. She used that same persona on social media as she was selling her image of as a humanitarian, woman’s rights advocate, equality crusader, a great life filled with friends, love, travel and great material stuff. It’s all fake just like many others who perpetuate this fabulous IG lifestyle. The younger generation follow people like these and think their lives are fabulous and to be admired. Harry said he wants them to get off social media and do something good and exposing the lies that Meghan’s put out on social media as well as putting what’s really going on with this odd relationship will definitely put the younger generation off from wasting time following fake and vapid people who populate social media, tv and the mainstream press.
I agree with the gossip that Harry’s protecting someone and has to keep Meghan attached to him in order to do so. It seems though that her nasty past is being leaked so now he doesn’t need to keep her close anymore. I think it might’ve been Charles as he’s now gotten the Commonwealth job and doesn’t have to worry about Meghan running to the press crying racism that she received from the royal family.

I've posted in the correct thread this time

Meghan Markle: American Princess

Well, I just finished watching the show hosted by Gayle King and it didn't reveal anything unknown. It was just a show to get ratings and they got mine, darn.  :bat:

It showed the home videos of Meghan as a young child, acting in plays at school and small roles in certain movies and then Suits. Gayle interviewed Meghan's sorority sisters from Northwestern, they were total sugars, one said that there was "a ray of light around Meghan when she opened the door as a rusher." Seriously? :sly:

There was footage of Meghan when she visited Rwanda talking about girls not being able to go to school because they have to fetch water that is contaminated and makes them sick. On one hand Meghan looks like a humanitarian and on the other hand it's a photo op because you can be a humanitarian without the camera, so she was promoting how much she "cares" for attention. But I guess Harry does the same?

The last 15 minutes of the show were dedicated to their engagement photographer, Alexi. I found out that he grew up in Botswana so maybe that is why he was chosen, aside from having a good photography portfolio.

When the show brought up Harry's love life, they didn't show his past gfs. And they mentioned the blind date but not the person who set them up.  :-

Gayle asked a woman if Meghan is giving up a lot and she said yes, the lack of freedom and constant scrutiny. Well, it's what she wanted, so enjoy, Megs.

Title: Re: Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are engaged III
Post by: lesken on April 21, 2018, 02:45:54 pm
Well they all get thinner with the attention except Fergie. I am convinced now that Harry wouldn't take a proper woman for his wife. He is too wild himself. This woman can match his ways and support his causes while basking in the limelight. I really think he would not accept anything more than her in terms of suitability. I think he likes that she went topless and he has "tamed" this yankie actress in his mind. She did the taming but she boosts his ego. And she gives some brains to the couple.  They get along and have chemistry. Having gone abroad I realize that she doesn't matter that much. The RF has changed and will diminish in time from what they were. And all of this marrying down helps that process. This is fate, Diana wanted this for the RF and she got it from the grave. I am still not sure this will last but it could. Most of the time these Winsor men stay loyal to their love. Diana was not Charles's love. Andrew is loyal to Fergie and Koo.

I like her whole outfit tonight. Except on the suede, as YM has written on the other thread: unfitting material for such warm weather; simple leather would have looked better.

Navy seems to be the theme or a coincidence?

I find it strange that she is around so much whilst not being married in yet, but I do think the cause is threefold: 1. the Winds want to appear "modern" and not exclude partners who aren't married in yet, engagement is as good as; 2. they want to appeal to the commonwealth and Britain's multicultural face, and let's be honest, mixed-race Meghan is perfect for an image rehaul; 3. they can test drive her a little and see whether she's any good, let's face it, C&C, W&K are all duds....

Though the concert might be highbrow, it's nowhere near like last night's dinner, where Meg was def not invited to.

On another note, maybe best for another thread but I'll continue here as the concert is a point:
Why the fck does Waity always scuttle off and hide in about her last month of pregnancy and sometimes longer?? It is ridiculous, odd and just abnormal, what other pregnant woman halts her life like that? Highly pregnant Diana was out and about, and look at Madeleine, baby Nic could have come at any minute and she was out and about, incl at her bother's wedding, she gave birth the day after or so, imagine Waity being at an engagement and giving birth the next day. What is this non-sense and avoiding the limelight so much? If H's wedding date were the 20th April, would she have missed that too? Because she's "too pregnant to be seen in public"? There is no reason why she is missing this concert or all the commonwealth engagements. "Work shy" doesn't even begin to describe the disgrace that is Kate Middleton.

PS I like M's dress here, I do have a thing for cape dresses :shy:

All I can think of is that it would’ve looked odd if she wasn’t at a public concert and the proceeds of the concert will benefit the young people of the commonwealth; the youth organization that Harry’s head of. Umm, will this crap finally be over after this concert? Will bad news about her be released?

Harry took to the stage during the concert to wish his grandmother a happy birthday, and said: 'Tonight we are celebrating the Queen's Birthday but Your Majesty, if you do not mind me saying, you are not someone who is easy to buy gifts for.'
Prince Harry led tributes to his grandmother in his new role as president of The Queen's Commonwealth Trust, saying: 'As we celebrate your 92nd birthday this evening and in recognition of your incredible life of service, I am delighted to say that the Queen's Commonwealth Trust has now been launched to support young leaders around the Commonwealth.
'This organisation, in your name, will provide a platform for those working to make a difference in their communities across 53 countries. Happy Birthday Your Majesty.'

The best present that he could give to the queen would be to drop that haggard Soho House chick who's presence make him look like a big looser and a hypercrit. Odd how Wills looks so pleased with himself as Harry looks tense and stressed out. Mehgan of course looks like she's won the jackpot as she's sitting in the royal box.

Harry always looks so blank in pictures. It is as if someone has sucked his soul out. I would have to look at older photos to see if this is how he photographs or this is a result of MM influence. He just may not have a face that conveys emotion in the camera. Would have been a failure as an actor. Oh well, the MM dress is nice and I don't like Stella's style as a whole. This one I did. It seems Navy is the color to honor the Queen at her events if you are in the RF. At this point with less than a month for the wedding, I think it doesn't matter if MM is going to the events now. A month will pass quickly and I think PH doesn't want to be solo anymore. Her hair is up all the time as I think she fiddles too much with it down. Other than that, she is getting  better at appearence in the later part of the engagement. The advisors are doing their work well.

Getting this attention for her is great. So she will cling to PH. I always wonder if she gets it so she has the attention without him, will she really stay.  That is the question. Don't ever underestimate the flakiness of a Californian. It is imprinted in the natives.

^^ How long did it take for the press to dig that one out? Either they didn't do their job properly, or were forced to keep their trap shut.
In any case, that's what's been said since the start. Not news, but might be a brand new revelation for some..

^^^^ Same, had a look on that site and am surprised how bad her hair is :- I always thought Megs had good lush hair and just straightened it and even though there's talk of extensions I generally figured she didn't need them. Her hairline looks in that one pic like she's approaching Naomi Campbell territory. Naomi's pics when I first saw them ages ago, depicting the irreversible damage years of extensions did to her (she's basically bald, looks like a man's receding hairline in the fugliest way), shocked me enough to swear to never ever have any sort of extensions and I don't understand why celeb women use them so much when the longterm effect is so well known.

I also always assumed Kate's good hair was hers, never followed her until she married in and then didn't believe the extensions comments, plus when I started following I believed the sugary press of the 1st year. I have actually hair like Kate's, only naturally without extensions, so I figured back then people who wrote she used tonnes of extensions were full of it.. Nope! Was I wrong... :sigh:

And looking at Pippa, she has thin hair, not very full, fairly thin lips and that flat face of hers, but I have to say she has the most sense that she seems to never have fiddled with her face (injections, surgery, also keeps her hair natural -i.e. no extensions, wiglets or weaves -, I don't even think she dyes it!!) and she looks all the better for it. Better than her sis Kate. Let's just not talk about the state of their skin... But I think Pip did it best, stayed more true to herself than Meg or Kate and it's not like Pip is any less in the limelight or at "lower" functions than the other 2. Pip did never overdo it, stayed natural and when it comes down to it knocks it out of the park.

^ Not sure people who are used for whatever reason (social climbing or financial gain, to name only 2 possible reasons why people are used) are exactly consenting to it and think or realize that's what's been happening to them..

I just saw the Town and Country Mag with her on the cover. No others this week and never as many as Kate had. But looking at the photos, she is not that pretty, just somewhat attractive. Her taste in clothes questionable most of the time and her past awful except her attempt at the UN and getting Harry's attention in Africa. So I know this is who Harry wants and that is his choice. But an American Princess? Let's see, a plastic surgery face that still isn't the best, a divorced woman, a climbing actress with a past and with a low class family and a liar to boot. My God is this the best America can offer? I guess.

Yes, indeed, Harry did pick one out for fame and money.  That seems to be the consensus, anyway.   Perhaps she can take note of our current First Lady -- who never dreamed she would ever be First Lady -- and carry out her responsibilities with grace and dignity, appropriately dressed.

Doria lives in LA.  Her ex-husband was in the show biz industry and so was her daughter.  She gets how the media game is played.

Anyway, Doria is so blah -- no personality, just a blank slate -- that I think she will drop off the radar after the wedding.  The media is simply trying to get some kind of reaction or quote from her.  She just stares blankly at them.

‘Meghan Markle’ Dips While ‘Jane The Virgin’ Steady In Friday Ratings
Quote
CBS paid a price for its Meghan Markle special on Friday. The network was the night’s most watched, but lost its chance to win the night in the key 18-49 demographic when it preempted Blue Bloods for the Markle special at 10 PM.
Compared to previous week’s Blue Bloods in the hour, Gayle King-hosted Meghan Markle: American Princess (0.6, 5.18M) dropped 25% in the 18-49 year age bracket, and by 3.1 million total viewers.
Meanwhile, two hours of MasterChef Junior (0.8, 3.12M) won the night in 18-49 for Fox.

John Oliver has an important warning for Meghan Markle

[...]

Stephen [Colbert] kicked off by asking:

    Being English you must be really excited about the royal wedding?

To which John replied.

    No.


But don't worry, there's more.

John goes on to say that he wouldn't blame Megan if "she pulls out of this at the last minute".

    I don't think you need to have just seen the pilot episode of The Crown to get a basic sense she might be marrying into a family that could cause her some emotional complications.


When asked by Stephen if the current generation of royals were better than their predecessors, John remarks :

    They're an emotionally stunted group of fundamentally flawed people doing a very silly pseudo-job – that's what she's marrying into.


    So, I hope she likes it. It's going to be weird for her.

The conversation then turns to knighthoods and the fact that John has probably scuppered his chances of getting one. Stephen Colbert enquires:

    If you see other performers or comedians get a knighthood, do you think... what the f**k are you doing?

John replies that "it's just weird to kneel in front of another adult".

    It's a bit strange, it's an odd thing to still have. I like royal weddings, I also like fireworks. It's a spectacle, they're both nice to look at.

To finish the rather rousing chat, while still sticking to the topic of old traditions within the royal family, Stephen asks whether 'kiss the ring' has a different connotation in the UK to the US. He was, of course, referring to the traditional kiss of the Queen's hand at formal events.

After a long pause, John replies:

    Historically, the Prime Minister, who would have to have tea with the King every week would have to end that tea time by puckering up and kissing the King on his exposed a******.

    [long pause]

    Do you think that's got my [knighthood] invitation back?

    Meghan Markle watched Serena Williams play at Wimbledon in July 2016 - just days after meeting Prince Harry for the first time at Soho House in London
    The bride-to-be was sat just inches away from Pippa Middleton in players' box
    Meghan was later spotted in the VIP lounge alongside Harry's ex Cressida Bonas

MM was sooo working her angles with him. But not that other women haven't done the same thing when chasing down a guy. And since he had met her, maybe he got her good seats before their next date. That is typical of dating a connected person in whatever arena. MM as we all know will not drop Harry now. She has worked hard to get this goal and I have no doubt loving the attention and glamour she is getting. I don't think she has the emotions to be upset by the RF. She dumps people at will. So that is a good thick skin she has to deal with them. They should watch out IMO.

She clearly set her sites on Harry/Wills (she wouldn’t care that he’s married) as she thinks she’s so fabulous and would be a great asset to the royal family and public life. Since May is mental health month, I hope that she’ll get to be the example of what’ll happen to stalkers and she’ll get the help she needs. To me, it seems even Corey walked on eggshells around her as she exhibited odd behavior as she was some big celebrity and had to have the best of everything. The royal family are doing the same as she could make their lives a bit uneasy as she would’ve, actually has gone to the press to cry racism. The wedding, IMO, will be her downfall as it’s not happening and she’ll be seen as the delusional narcissistic person she is. Fingers crossed.  :cookie:

To my eyes, they even look odd paired together, totally unlike a paired couple - and I don't know how to explain this.  It's as if Harry is being Harry and Meghan is being whoever she needs to be seen as at any particular time.  It's always a kittenish pose, and Harry acting like himself makes them look odd as a pair.  Unpaired.  :- :dontknow:

^ I see exactly what you mean AnaBolena. I see the same. It’s even more pronounced now that she’s not hanging onto Harry like a barnacle. As you said, Harry is always being himself and she’s playing the part. A part that I already think she sees as one she should’ve passed up. Overall I think the case is that there’s absolutely zero connection between either of them as a couple and it’s blatant to me. Any of us can have a wild time with someone we don’t see or deal with  often. To be together everyday, is when you actually get a real idea of things. It’s a no from me.

^^ITA with that. I find Harry mirroring the nonsense she does and comes up with like he did during the engagement interview. I don’t think they see each other other than the engagements that they’ve done. She said during her Vanity Fair article that they’ll have takes to tell and how everyone loves a good love story. She’s made up quite a few like her living in Harry’s cottage and loved by his family when in reality, she’s staying somewhere else and is never seen mingling with Harry’s family and when is seen amongst the royal family, she’s glued to Harry’s side. IMO, she’s not well in the head and needs a really check.

Victoria has introduced Meghan to British brands and even her favourite facialist, Chelsea-based Sarah Chapman.

As well as becoming a member of an exclusive £575-a-month gym, the sixth in line to the throne has been following his fiancee’s love of ‘clean eating’ – and has lost more than half a stone as a result.
According to one source, the royal has joined Miss Markle, 36, in juicing, cutting out carbs and processed food and incorporating ingredients such as kale and quinoa into his daily diet. A source said: ‘Meghan has completely changed Harry’s diet. She’s got him juicing and he has lost at least half a stone, which is a lot for someone as skinny as he is.

is Meghan Markle's mother preparing for an interview with Oprah? Doria Ragland visits chat show queen at her $88m mansion and emerges smiling and loaded with gifts after six hours

Meghan Markle's mother was spotted over the weekend visiting Oprah Winfrey at her home in California, just three weeks ahead of the royal wedding.

Doria Ragland made a visit to Winfrey's $88million 'Promised Land' mansion in Santa Barbara on Saturday as expectations mount for her daughter's wedding to Prince Harry in London.

The purpose of the visit is still unclear but Ragland emerged after six hours bearing gifts including a gift basket that contained some of Winfrey's favorite items.

But a source told DailyMail.com: 'No one knows how to schmooze better than Oprah. It’s very much her MO to win people over by showering them with her personal attention – and gifts - to get what she’s after.

‘In this case whether it’s a pre- or post-wedding interview with the mother of the princess bride for her magazine or OWN network, Oprah definitely wants the inside track.

'And this is probably not the first conversation she’s had with Doria – or the last,' the insider added.

Ragland is no doubt looking forward to seeing her daughter, 36, marry fiance Prince Harry, 33, at St George's Chapel, Windsor Castle, next month.

Meghan's mother, who is a yoga instructor, is expected to arrive in London 'well before' her daughter ties the knot 'so she can be part of all the fun and festivities and see that dress'.

Prince Harry Is 'Extremely Excited' for His Big Wedding Day:

A source tells PEOPLE that the groom-to-be is “exceptionally happy, extremely excited” about his nuptials to fiancée Meghan Markle.

Harry and Meghan are winding down the clock ahead of their wedding, set for May 19 at St. George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle. There, they’ll tie the knot in front of hundreds of guests, before celebrating during a nighttime reception at Frogmore House, also on the grounds of Windsor Castle.

Meghan has been preparing for the big day, too, getting visits from friends — including her potential maid of honor Jessica Mulroney, who reportedly came to London in the past few days to help Meghan tie up loose ends ahead of the big day.

Meghan Markle's Estranged Brother Writes a Letter to Prince Harry (EXCLUSIVE)
Quote
In a handwritten letter shared exclusively with In Touch, Meghan Markle’s estranged brother, Thomas Markle Jr., tells Prince Harry that it’s 'not too late' to not marry his sister.
"You and the royal family should put an end to this fake fairytale wedding before it’s too late." Tom concludes his letter with, "Also you would think that a royal wedding would bring a torn family closer together, but I guess we are all distant family to Meg."

Meghan Markle Had “Secret First Husband”?

Meghan Markle will be getting married for the second time when she weds Prince Harry later this month. But a new tabloid cover story claims she has a “secret first husband,” to whom she was married before ex-husband Trevor Engelson. This is made-up and not true. Gossip Cop can help set the record straight.

The new cover of the National Enquirer dramatically announces, “Found! Man-Eater Meghan’s Secret First Hubby!” According to the accompanying article, Prince Harry has been “blindsided by claims” that his future wife is “hiding a secret marriage.” It’s specifically alleged that, prior to her nuptials with Engelson, Markle “wed for the first time after a two-year relationship, but the union was brief, and the couple swept the record clean with a hush-hush annulment.”

This so-called “other husband” was “kept hidden from friends, family” and even Engelson, contends the gossip magazine, which claims the “bombshell revelation has rocked the royal family to its core.” A supposed “palace insider” is quoted as saying Prince Harry is now in a “difficult spot” and “must be completely embarrassed by this.” But the phrase “must be” suggests this alleged “palace insider” doesn’t actually have first-hand knowledge of the alleged situation.

At this point even if it were true I doubt Harry cares. He has made his choice and he's going to stick by it at least for now. I don't agree with his choice but then I'm not him nor his mother. He is the one that has to live with her and be part of her at this point and their lives. I think Harry has emotional problems and this woman knows how to deal with them that makes him comfortable. So we'll just have to wait and see how they do in a few years. Whatever they dig up on her now absent she's a serial killer is just not going to matter.

I doubt very very much that Harry and Meghan have been offered York Cottage. They have to get a larger apartment at KP first before a country house anywhere. When they do get a country place I've just got a feeling it's likely to be nearer Highgrove than Sandringham.
However York Cottage is undeniably haunted. I knew someone who described the iciness near what was the Duke of Clarence's bedroom, empty in those days. People didn't like going near.

Why 'nice but clingy' Harry is marrying Meghan - and not any of his MANY former flames: Prince's complex psychology revealed by Britain's top royal writers
Quote
But this time it is the bridegroom, Prince Henry Charles Albert David, who is the more nervous of the two. Indeed, friends report that Meghan is having to calm Harry down.
‘She’s telling him everything will be fine,’ says one of their circle. ‘She’s nervous too, but she’s brilliant at hiding it. It’s what he loves more than ever about her — that worldly composure and assurance. He knows he’s found someone on whom he can rely.’
 :laugh:
Quote
Soon after their engagement, the Queen’s cousin Richard — the Duke of Gloucester, 73 — whose three children are now grown up, offered to vacate his splendid 21-room Apartment 1 at the palace so Harry and Meghan could have it — it is next door to William and Kate. The question was, where would the Gloucesters go?

Very long odd article. Most, if not all of these women used the press and social media to push their adgenda of a romance with Harry to garner attention for themselves; Chelsea to a lesser degree. The royal family's been under threat from opportunist who use social media now. I think that this circus has something to do with the royal family being able to shut this kind of stuff down by lodging complaints and having some law passed.

^ Remains to be seen whether the dm is right, not too long now, but yeah obv they'd use an existing dress as pic based on the description; they have details leaked, not pics of the actual dress, maybe sketches at best. There's nothing to discredit the leak for now and they seem to be adamant that they are right about it being a Ralph & Russo dress with detailing yadda yadda (many thought she'd go with R&R based on that fugly e-pic dress). Pretty spectacular if it turns out to be true, no one's dress has been so far leaked like Murkle's has.

Also hilarious that H seems to have cold feet and M needs to talk him into the wedding :laugh: According to studies cold feet (i.e. the gut telling you that it's wrong) usually lead to divorces down the road (always listen to your gut feeling!).

Also funny that H is described as clingy when Murkles has been nothing but clingy on engagements.

Murkles "one of us" will "change everything", firstly it's bs with nothing more to say, such bs that it reeks to the moon! secondly, Waity was already "one of us" and bound to "change everything!"

Meghan Markle's mum to reveal vile racial abuse suffered by family

Meghan Markle’s mum is ready to tell the world about the race *despise* her family has suffered since her daughter’s engagement to Prince Harry.

Doria Ragland is expected to open her heart in an unprecedented interview with American TV superstar Oprah Winfrey.

The pair met for six hours last weekend at Oprah’s £70million California ­hacienda and thrashed out ideas for the interview.

The explosive chat will go ahead if Buckingham Palace gives the green light.

And there could be no bigger TV stage than appearing on Oprah, who has grilled the good and the great, the famous and the fallen – including the likes of cycling drugs cheat Lance Armstrong, 46.

^^ Exactly and Doria being "so much better than x" x being everyone else, the Midds, the Markles etc etc. This is putting the Midds in the shadow and that is a feat in itself. Wow. The Midds were much more subtle and stayed somewhat in the background and the shadows and "only" did pap walks and talked to journos hidden behing "sources". This is a whole other level.

^^^ I have to agree.

So much for "oh no, Doria going to Oprah's house was just friendliness!" Yeah sure, I'm sure Doria has been a regular at Oprah's for ever and they're friends! Nothing else at all folks, move along!

I bought somewhat into the "Doria is good bla bla" but Doria is as fame hungry as all of them.

And also shove your race talk elsewhere, this is just hiding behind a "noble" motif to get yourself air time and milk this in your favour. And because BP, KP et al won't dare say "no" to this, because it makes them look racist by default. I don't buy much into the racism squibble, because for all I care Murkles could be purple & green striped, but I do find that race is brought up as an all round card by both sides and the argument abused by everyone too, incl Murkles & Doria.

I had sth more intelligent to say on this (the racism topic) just a minute ago, but it escaped me and right now I can't be bovvered to mull it over some more.. 8)

PS They can also cut the bs that Murkles made him quit smoking, because firstly so many things and so many times Haz has quit smoking, I've frankly lost count of occasions and reasons given, and secondly Murkles in her "on brand" and "health" frenzy somehow forgot she's a smoker herself. Pictured smoking as recently as 2016 in Positano. With Jessica Mulroney, the one with the disgusting artificially inflated duck lips. When I see her talk with those horrid things I want to punch her in the face. Mulroney is also a smoker btw.

Omid Scobie (who is an online correspondent about the BRF) got in touch with Oprah's reps and they denied that a meeting had ever taken place between Oprah and Doria.

The height of interest in the US would surely be in the week of the wedding if any interview was going to happen. If that was the case a contract would have been in place as we speak, as it is only twelve days to the wedding. Doria is also going to London several days earlier to meet Harry's family as is her father, according to the KP statement the other day.

So, if this interview really is a goer,  there's a remarkably narrow window of opportunity for any advertising/promotion to take place.

A palace fit for a princess! How 21-room Apartment 1 at Kensington Palace has hurriedly been renovated for Harry and Meghan - making them next door neighbours with Kate and William
Quote
According to reports, Meghan has persuaded Harry to give up smoking and cut down on alcohol in the hope of starting a family after their wedding, meaning that they may need a larger home than their two-bedroom cottage sooner rather than later.
Royal courtiers were last year keen to let it be known that the couple would immediately be living at Nottingham Cottage - Harry's 'batchelor pad' in the grounds of the Kensington Palace - for the foreseeable future.
But insiders have known for some time that it was always Harry's intention to move out of the cosy two-bed 'Nott Cott' as soon as possible and into Apartment 1 - a stunning 21-room wing of the palace.
Soon after their engagement, the Queen's cousin Richard - the Duke of Gloucester, 73 - whose three children are now grown up, offered to vacate his splendid 21-room Apartment 1 at the palace so Harry and Meghan could have it

^That I believe.  It’s the usual routine in the US anyway. 

After the wedding, when people are more aware of this whole show, then Doria can go on Oprah for a lot more $.  Oprah knows she can’t get Harry but she can get relationship, wedding, stress details then from poor frazzled overwhelmed Doria.  Much higher market value.  Plus, it keeps up the pressure to be nice or we play the race card.  It’s a huge trap, really.

^ Yes, Oprah would whip this hobby horse to mega publicity if not equally mega ratings.  But Oprah doesn't have the pull she once had, and the average American is weary of racism being pulled out as a threat.   

Add in the fact that Megs herself is not a likeable or popular figure with white or black persons, and I think any such interview would be but a blip on the screen, despite the Daily Mail headlines.  Diana is still the Ultimate Princess in the minds of Americans, and Megs just doesn't measure up with her messy hair, chicken legs, and sloppy clothing.  She's on her own.

No one is "below" Oprah, Oprah interviews pretty much everyone. The chance to get H or M themselves is non-existent or any other Windsor, so the next best thing is Doria, who along with Murkles' dad has respect. The Markles would be "below" Oprah, alone for the reason that they've been out of touch with M (& her dad) so are not credible on current info. So the next best thing to the golden goose is Doria or pa Murkles.

Doria being at Oprah's house needn't be any interview, but in all likelihood was a business meedting (discussing a possible interview and going over questions O is allowed to ask and for D to prep accordingly) plus for so long (7 hrs) making it seem more real and as more of a threat to spill the beans.

There is no doubt this was a business meeting with O to at least see where it could go (interview wise) and whatever other motifs are behind it.
It sure as heck was not "being friendly" or "catching up", over what anyway? O hasn't knwon or been friends with any Markle or Ragland.
Come on now.

If H were to marry an Italian, then you can bet your house RAI would try to get the Italian bride's closest and most credible relative for an interview.
The interest (by US media) is totally different into a US bride for the Winds than into a UK bride (e.g. Kate).

Typical comment from another forum.


£30m and rising for this wedding's security and now this revelation.  How long before Doria moves into KP? Apparently, MM's father is expecting a pay-off to keep him in clover (or anything else!) for the rest of his life.  The costs of this renovation cannot be disclosed as the RF are not subject to a Freedom of Information (FOI) request like the rest of us - i.e. the British taxpayers who are funding this bunch of money grabbers.

I really doubt that Meghan's parents will live in royal residences.  I think they will return to their lives in the US once the wedding is over. I don't think they'd be comfortable living in KP. Visits, yes. Moving in, NO way, IMO.

The wedding is less than two weeks I don't think Meghan needs Oprah's help to keep the wedding on track.

Apparently workers were in a great hurry to remove white tarpaulin so it wouldn't be visible during engagement interview and give the game away as Harry and murky have both been saying they would start married life in Nottingham Cottage. However  insiders have known all along they intended to move into this apartment asap andwjrk started well before  the engagement was announced. Mores and deceit.

Well as I said the reports they'd stay in Nott Cott were stupid, I think it was during H's Aussie tour years ago that he said he had an apartment earmarked. Likely also why the Gloucesters moved out, they lived there since 1972 and now suddenly they offered out of the goodness of their hearts to vacate their lifelong home, where they raised their kids. Yeah, sure. Also conspicuous that renovations started in Nov, when they only announced their engagement... Crazy.

I also still don't understand how the "after party" is happening at Frogmore House, as they were quite publicly denied the use of FH. The suddenly and quietly it was all "preparations for the reception at Winds Castle and party at FH". I thought I was crazy for claiming that they were publicly denied FH, but then saw others comment and ask the same question: as it was denied, how come they now suddenly are having the party there?

Nice lie from the Winds or KP again that they would "start their married life at Nott Cott", it is a convenient spin. What they really meant is "we'll sell them as humble, when in fact Harry chose apt 1 years ago and struck a deal with the Gloucesters and reluctantly H&M have to start their married life together at measly Nott Cott, because the renovations at apt 1 won't be finished by May or June."

Title: Re: Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are engaged III
Post by: HRHOlya on May 08, 2018, 12:12:42 am
^ Exactly.

Also, I just remembered US media had Charles Spencer as commentator, Fergie shilling stuff, and trying to have a show or segment with Pippa, they test shot sth and then it fell through over who knows what. So US media (Oprah) being interested in Doria and trying to get an interview and airtime with her is more realistic than H&M's cobbled together weird bs story over how and when they met. And everyone would be after a "royal UK connection", esp "almighty" Oprah, the first black woman with her own show and all other achievements this black woman has made, getting an interview with a black married-in Winds or her black mother. As said, Doria or pa Murkles are the next best thing to the real deal (which cannot be had), so Doria, who's apparently willing to talk, is hot stuff right now. And of course Doria is going to choose a black interviewer, fits the racial agenda so much better (I mean the topic is all about how hard Nutmeg (& her mum) had it, just because she's black! White Diana, Kate, Camilla and all the others were clearly never abused by the media with rude comments and even physically, because you know they are all English roses and white and privileged - just b/c of their skin colour, nevermind the connections - so the Raglands have an all new angle on this marrying-in business, having it so much harder than anyone else ever! :ick: :sly: :thumbsdown: )

Besides, Oprah is nowhere near as almighty as she was when she had cars "for you! and you! and you! and everyone!" Since her show ended, she's become less successful and the name "Oprah" doesn't quite mean the same, esp after the struggle OWN had. Undeniably of course, she's still very powerful and pulled OWN away from the brink of ruin. Anyway, my point is, Oprah is still high and mighty, but not quite as she once was, her "prime" is bygone.

No-one said that H and M had been denied the use of Frogmore House for their evening reception except one particular tabloid. I think it was the Fail but might have been the Express.

There was no official spokesman from any of the Palaces at the time stating that Frogmore House wasn't going to be used. That's the trouble. The tabloids come out with a whole lot of pronouncements about this that and the other about the royals, stuff that is later found to be inaccurate or untrue but it gets stuck in people's memories and when things are proved otherwise the royals are accused of lying.

Title: Re: Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are engaged III
Post by: HRHOlya on May 08, 2018, 10:48:36 am
Indeed, the trouble is, they have been caught in more lies than anyone cares to remember. Then when tabloids make sth up it makes no difference anymore.

Even someone who desperately wants to be on TV and is a blabbermouth needs media training before a big interview, esp when they want to discuss a "serious" topic. A meeting of several hours then takes place. And someone has to media train the interviewee.
And in order for people to get interest into someone else and so a "X who?" doesn't happen, that's why media likes to attach suffixes... "Harry's ex Chelsy/ Cressida/ Whoever", "Leo DiCaprio's ex Toni/ Whoever else", "Meghan's halfsiblings", "Kate's uncle Gary", "Boris Becker's lovechild Anna" etc etc, the examples are endless. They give you a famous person of interest ("Brois Becker") and their connection ("lovechild") and boom! No need to ask "who the f is that and what are they doing in the papers?" Easy.

He stated it was all speculative and that KP insisted that Harry and Meghan are at Nott Cott for the foreseeable future, but then wrote that it was his understanding that Clarence House had been earmarked for Harry, (presumably when Charles is King) but that depended on it becaming available (at a convenient time I suppose.)

Yeah but with Clarence House... It is hard to earmark that one, because (1.) Charles wants to stay at CH when he's king and use BP solely as "office". Then (2.) there's the possibility that W&K will move into CH once Charles is king, because CH is pretty much the "grandest" of all royal residences in London and therefore "fit for the heir to the throne". The 3rd possibility, as now laid out, for H to take over CH, seems more wishful thinking than a real possibility. Esp as W has now 3 kids and is the heir. Besides, as H ages and the Cambs sprogs come of age, his role will lessen and then he's likely to have to move out of CH (for George down the line). CH is very much a space for either monarch, heir or a "queen mother", pretty much as it's been used in the last many decades. H moving into a bigger space at KP makes overall more sense and would be more of a "forever" home, as it's more fit for a spare and down-the-line "minor royal" (or a place at BP or St James's for that matter).

None of the royals will live in one bedroom or studio apartments. They may play at being thrifty or normal like the young royals attempt to do but it's a sham. They spend money like water and live the good life. Harry and Meghan are no exceptions.

I think certain people would be interested in how Doria raised MM that she got her way into the Windsors especially with her background, divorced, actress, older, yank with not much social background whatsoever. However it may have nothing to do with Doria really. It is just how she is and turned out herself. I don't see Doria as a controlling type. But anyway, I can see the interest. I must say that she is looking much more ethnic in her appearance than she did when she was in her acting years. She is doing herself that way for a reason. I think her blackness however much it really is appeals to him.  I could see Harry adopting an African kid IF he was allowed to do that. I don't think he will be but who knows?  Harry has a personal and strong connection to Africa it seems.

In spite of the Sun's salacious headline IMO there's nothing in the article to cause heartburn at the Palace, just a selection of one dates or alleged short romances when Meghan was very young before she met Trevor. Of course she had boyfriends, and some of them would have been in showbiz or on the fringes of it. She was a young and attractive girl.

If you don¿t love Meghan you¿re a racist? Perhaps some of us don¿t really care for some of her comments or behaviors. I¿m a big Obama fan so don¿t give me the racist label. Perhaps I thought her engagement dress was extravagant and that she was artificial in some of her interview responses. Not that mention her Tig website focused on expensive travel sites, wine, shoes and clothing that I find materialistic. Not everyone has Oprah¿s budget. And not everyone likes social climbers.

The sun article has some revealing points though, like breaking it off with guys because they were too poorly connected, or because "over night a switch went off" like with her husband!!! How can a switch go off when you're married? Anyway, fits with the stories of her. Also pursuing that one guy relentlessly, who was well connected and whose parents have a place in the Hamptons....

NCIS LA had a mention of MM in their last episode. Something about - ideas for her wedding gown and I thought: she's so disliked that no one cares what she will wear, if anything. Everyone's interested in what the senior royals will come up with for that day so that they are not at the wedding and what new stuff will be unearthed about her, like the rumor that she had a lovechild with her first husband that she left for adoption. Just the thought that there's a teenager out there that soon after the wedding will start taking interviews and demand to have tea with her new granny QE II.

Well her father is repulsive looking but I am sure he'll find someone to talk to about things. The next Lady Di? I don't think so. She doesn't have what it takes. Diana was a sensation the minute she stepped in the public eye with no Hollywood ambition. She had mega star quality and still does even in death. If Kate died, no one would miss her that miss much. Same with Markle.  But she can try and do good deeds in the pubic and attend charity events while making sentimental faces at the people. Interesting that my El Salvador cleaning lady was commenting that MM is older but acts like a teenager. I never thought of it like that but she has a point. She may be emotionally very immature and that fits Harry just fine IMHO. Will they mature together and work it...Who knows?


Title: Re: Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are engaged III
Post by: HRHOlya on May 10, 2018, 07:27:05 pm
^^ Doubt it. One of the guys she boasted was an "all American boy", a white guy with dark hair and that's as dark as it ever got...

"She would gush to pals about her “tall, dark, handsome all-American” boyfriend. A source told The Sun: “She was moving into a new world from LA and being able to land a guy who was already settled and popular was important for her.

“She was very proud of having landed this handsome guy and happy to share photos of him. She spoke of how broad and beautiful his chest was.

Meghan was used to being ‘the star’ of the pairing but Steve was the star of the basketball team. She hadn’t ever dated someone like that.”

But after five months in 1999, Steve transferred from Northwestern University to a college in North Carolina."

The sun article is full of gems and really in line of what's being said about her (ambitious, dropping people who don't suit (anymore) etc).

That link was an eye opener to what some folks think of her and her lies. And I think a lot more f what they’re saying has truth in it. I do feel that they are trying to brainwash us into thinking she’s a catch, when it’s obvious she isn’t.

And I might just watch the wedding if only to see inside the chapel at Windsor Castle. It’s stunning. (Ss is Kings College Cambridge). But not for the wedding itself. I’ll have enough of that on the tv.

I think he’s made a bad mistake picking her for his partner. But it’s his life, even if we reluctant taxpayers are having to fund their lifestyle for them.

Not sure if Wallis was resentful. She got a lifetime of luxury minus any responsibilities.

Besides, with Meghan it's not just one thing, it's not the ambitiousness, it's not the ruthlessness, it's not the social climbing, nor the using of people, nor the rumored yachting, nor the string of past lovers and marriages. It's all of it that makes her unlikeable.

Also, everyone can lower their standards and what they can accept but if I were Harry, I'd draw the line at bald patches on the head and abandoned child out there who probably had a difficult start in life because of Meghan's motherly instinct.

MEGHAN Markle’s dad drops off some flowers at his ex-wife’s in a peace offering ahead of their daughter’s wedding.

Thomas Markle Sr left the pot of blooms on the doorstep of Doria Ragland’s LA home.
His gesture seemed to be well received when she found the gift hours later.

Former Hollywood lighting director Thomas Sr, 73, and social worker Doria, 61, married in 1979 but divorced in 1988 when Meghan was a tot.

A source said: “Thomas is clearly trying to work his charm on Doria before the wedding.

Meghan Markle dumped me over my garlic breath after we snogged at end of romantic dinner, reveals the porn star who dated Prince Harry's bride-to-be
Quote
Posing languidly stretched out naked on a bearskin rug, an unlit cigarette dangling from his mouth and with only a puppy to hide his modesty, he seems an unlikely suitor in the life of the poised young woman who next week will become Her Royal Highness and daughter-in-law to the Prince of Wales.
If it’s any comfort, the Royal Family will scarcely raise an eyebrow at the revelations. As one figure close to the Royals told me: ‘It’s a horrid little betrayal, but it won’t damage her reputation. She’s not a virginal bride like Diana, who was only just out of her teens when she married Charles, but a mature woman of experience with one failed marriage behind her.’
During her university years Meghan did work experience as an intern at the U.S. embassy in Buenos Aires. In 2002, she was said to have ‘caught the eye’ of a wealthy Argentine businessman.
According to the newspaper the encounter was ‘something of a liberation’ for her. She was off in Argentina and had this little adventure on the quiet.’
Interestingly, Meghan was also linked to another American who worked at the embassy. Or at least those are the rumours in the Argentine capital.

You need to have full access to the Times to read the full article. Finally a credible paper's saying what people have been suspecting.  :cookie:

This is the full article.

When the father of Meghan Markle was shown with a book about Britain in a photograph taken near his home in Mexico, it was an amusing moment in the onslaught of media coverage before the royal wedding. When a few weeks later Thomas Markle, 73, appeared on the front page of a newspaper apparently being measured for his wedding suit, it looked as if he had become the victim of media harassment.

However, by the time yet another picture was published, this one showing him looking at Prince Harry and Ms Markle on his computer screen, questions were being asked. Did he pose for some of the photos? Is he co-operating with one of the photographers near his home in Rosarito?And if so, was he paid for his help?

Gil Sperry, editor of the Baja Times, said: “The paparazzi have been quite relentless. The latest scuttlebutt has Thomas staging pictures of himself . . . for distribution to the world.”

The pictures that have aroused suspicion were all taken by the same agency, Coleman-Rayner, which is run from Los Angeles by two British journalists.

One picture, which was published in the Daily Mail, was everything a photographer could have wished for: Mr Markle was holding the book in such a way that the full title, Images of Britain: a Pictorial Journey Through History, was visible. The one of him in an internet café aroused suspicion because the screen appeared to have been tilted to enable a clear shot.

“What a relief Thomas Markle was looking at pictures of Meghan when this photographer crept up behind and snapped him. How fortuitous,” Katie Hind, a journalist, wrote on social media.

People close to Mr Markle said that he had not co-operated and was upset by the level of media intrusion.

Jeff Rayner, of Coleman-Rayner, said: “I cannot comment on that, I’m afraid. Literally no comment on that.”

Kensington Palace declined to comment.

Even the Medds are more subtle with their pap walks. The Murkles, in spite of having been part of Tinsletown for ages, seem to be like elephants in a glass house. Weird. No sense for subtlety, at all.
When you start praising the Medds, you know sth's horribly wrong. Murkles seems to be the answer to Waity's and Scarole's prayers, there's an onslaught of "at least Waity/ the Medds never did/ know how to/ do..." When Waity & the Medds start to look good, you know the end is nigh :nervous: :-
Thomas's pap walks are certainly one of the oddest things to date. So in-your-face..

^thank you AnaBolena.
The more the father has these paid pap setup the more it shows that there's no wedding because realistically, they'd be in London weeks ago for fittings, rehearsals, etc. It's odd that the DM only has the pictures of Thomas dropping off the flowers to her house but the Sun has Doria looking at the flowers and the pink note.  This game playing and general shiftiness is blowing up in their faces.

The more I think of this union the more I think that this is what Harry wants. He has always been rebellious and a bad boy at heart but likeable. I bet he likes her trashy family and her , trashy, fake, attention seeking, tinsel town bohemian side. Diana once said "Don't underestimate Harry". He outdid William in bringing in the common to the RF. And she has gotten him to eat better and stop smoking and drinking so much which is to her credit. She does like the job of public charity with a mouth as she fancies herself an important advocate of whatever. She will always be lesser than him in looks, (at least naturally) status, background and that stuff but better than him in intellect and ambition. So he can feel superior but admiring. Plus she is no doubt a *sleazy* in bed due to her Hollywood training and experience. If he wanted to swing, she'd do it with him, I have no doubt.  I think that deep inside both Diana's boys, they know she was done in by their family. It was just too convenient for her to die. But they must bury that in their own way. And Harry is getting even with this marriage. And based on all his issues, a nice respectable attorney such as Amal Clooney would not appeal to him. So let the American trash and American middle class be presented to the royals in their habitat. It might due them good to see what is down the road.

I think that Meghan lied that her mom is in UK and the palace used the flowers with a card trick to disprove the lie and discredit one of the two snitches of Meghan. If MM is hiding in LA instead of London then this could have been a message for her.

I also think that Camila and Kate look like awesome choices compared to MM and that's a good PR for them. It's also a welcome distraction from the new Epstein scandal. It seems , though, that MM is trying her best to push it to the altar and it's time for KP, BP and CH to step up and shut down for good this badly written reality show.

A week before the wedding would not be the time MM would be hiding in L.A. I haven't seen the card or in the know about his latest gossip, but I would imagine anyone in her position is where the wedding will be with it a week away. Think of all the stuff to do and approve of at the last minute with a wedding of this size. Any royal wedding is a major production.

Naomi Campbell lauds Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's interracial romance as she claims Princess Diana 'would have loved' the actress
Quote
'I think this is another example showing the world about race, I think they're going to be a couple that's going to be a symbol, a big symbol all over the world.'
Naomi made the comments while promoting her charity fashion show whose theme this year is the 'race for equality'.
http://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-5721555/Naomi-Campbell-dazzles-Fashion-Relief-runway-photocall-Cannes-Film-Festival.html
I’ve no idea what she’s on about but she knows how to use this circus of a wedding to garner attention to what she’s promoting. In fact there seems to be quite a few articles that are bringing up her ethnicity because her nasty past is being highlighted in the press on a daily basis.

The Trusty and Beloved is only used for British and Commonwealth citizens ('cousins'.) Emily Nash, who broke this story earlier, sought an explanation and that was what she was told.

As for Thomas Markle, the photos were all taken on the one day. KP didn't know about it, and Tom, who at least has never trashed his daughter to anyone, now has legal representation after KP earlier appealed for privacy.

With regard to the Instrument of Consent--each one of these documents is different and unique, simply because every bit of it is handwritten and also painted by hand. So you're not going to get duplicates of anything. This has Queen Elizabeth's signature on it as well as the Great Seal and is therefore authentic.

That instrument of consent is a mess. It's as though a bunch of extras were added to it for no reason.

No one believed that Meghan would last this long and go through with the wedding.  That tells me, she is very stupid.  Meghan clearly does not understand that this marriage to Prince Harry is not going to turn out the way she thinks.  And, she is not going to be able to make it what she wants it to be either.

To celebrate the occasion Lifetime has released £2.5million movie based on the couple's relationship airing in the US this evening and in the UK on May 14.
And it seems that royal fans may be in for more than they bargained for with new stills from the film seeing the couple in a very compromising position.
One scene sees Prince Harry's (Murray Fraser) romantic proposal to Meghan (Parisa Fitz-Henley) at their Kensington Palace cottage recreated resulting in a steamy love scene.

Note: The Netflix series, The Crown, is one of the most expensive ever produced. And its lavish production values and top cast befit the old royals, circa 1950 onward. But now, we have Nutmeg and Ginger, and get a cheap, slap-dash production shot mostly on a sound stage in Vancouver -- a la soap opera. A metaphor for the decline of the Windsors.

Palace backs Meghan Markle's father in 'staged' paparazzi picture row
Hannah Furness, Arts Correspondent

The father of Meghan Markle is receiving the support of Kensington Palace as he was accused of collaborating with the paparazzi to stage photographs ahead of his daughter’s wedding.

Thomas Markle, who lives in Mexico, is claimed to have worked with photographers on a series of images, with CCTV footage appearing to show him posing for shots in an internet cafe.

The revelations, published in a Sunday newspaper, come days before Mr Markle,   Mr Markle, a 73-year-old former Hollywood lighting director, is due to travel to Britain to meet Prince Harry, his future son-in-law, for the first time.

Mr Markle and Doria Ragland, Ms Markle’s mother, are also due to spend time with the Queen, Duke of Edinburgh, Prince of Wales, Duchess of Cornwall and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, after the Royal Family moved to welcome their daughter into the family.

Kensington Palace has previously issued warnings to the media not to publish pictures of Mr Markle or Ms Ragland taken under circumstances of harassment, insisting they had no wish to take part in any personal publicity.

But a series of photographs, printed in the tabloid press, aroused suspicion after showing Mr Markle exercising in public, reading a book called “Images of Britain”, being measured for a suit, and looking up pictures of his daughter in an internet cafe.

The Mail on Sunday has now published CCTV images and interviews with staff at the cafe and make-shift tailors in Mexico, alleging that the pictures were staged.

The revelations will cause deep embarrassment for the Palace in the lead-up to the Royal wedding. A source said the Palace had been offering Mr Markle support and would “continue to make interventions with the media out of concern for his safety and security”.   

It is understood that there are concerns for Mr Markle’s safety and well-being, after photographers descended on his small home town following news of his daughter’s engagement.

The revelations are likely to bring back memories of difficult days for the Royal Family, with Prince Harry’s mother Diana, Princess of Wales, known to have colluded with the media at times.

In an interview last year, the Duke of Cambridge said he was aware of “some games and shenanigans”, with his mother being “possibly a bit naive” in trying to get her side of the story across in difficult times.

Prince Harry has been deeply protective of Ms Markle since their relationship was made public, issuing a strong statement in 2016 after  what he called a “wave of abuse and harassment”.

Then, his press secretary said: “He knows commentators will say this is ‘the price she has to pay’ and that ‘this is all part of the game’. He strongly disagrees.

This is not a game - it is her life and his.” Mr Markle is understood to be travelling to Britain for his daughter’s wedding as planned, and will walk his Ms Markle down the aisle on her wedding day.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle spent their last ‘singles’ trip at a secret love nest before the Royal Wedding
The couple relaxed at a four-bedroom cottage they are leasing long-term in a pretty Cotswolds village.

If truly remorseful (not) why not give the money to charity.   More relatives are allegedly going to come forward with eye opening tales once the nuptials are over.  One was heard to say 'it's like winning the lottery.'

The RF as usual are out and about laughing almost hysterically to keep up the front whilst there is mayhem and horror behind closed doors.

TV exec who hired Meghan for Suits reveals how the bride-to-be loves to CUDDLE Kensington Palace staff - and tells them: 'I'm American, I hug'
Quote
TV executive Bonnie Hammer, who hired Meghan to star Suits, told NBC's Inside the Royal Wedding: Harry and Meghan, which airs this week, that there's nothing formal about the bride-to-be.

Bonnie, who is expected to attend the royal wedding, said that she'd heard stories of how she started greeting the security guards at Kensington Palace with hugs after meeting them a few times.

Wouldn't you think Ma and Pa would have already been in England so they could recover from jet lag and become acclimated before the Big Day??

This is exactly what I thought!! If it were me, I'd have flown in my parents at least 2 weeks before the wedding day, so they get acclimated, rest, see some sights, get in some quality time, and then everyone be ready for the big day. If the honeymoon isn't immediately happening, then I'd leave them after the wedding also for how long they want and can be there. These family relations are the weirdest thing. The Medds roped in Bill 100%, but the Murkles/ Raglands (even the parents!!) couldn't be further, physically and emotionally. :-

^They are reaching with this one. What Tom Sr. is pulling is NOTHING like Diana's situation.

To compare their pap walks with Diana's is the most ridiculous thing I've ever read. Everyone does pap walks to further their agenda, and Liz, Chuck, Bill, Waity and z list slebs are all included in "everyone", they are far from being exempt from these charades and games. The only question is: how subtle can you be to pull it off properly? And people aren't stupid, when you read the comments you see that people see right through every single pap walk by virtually everyone.

Meghan's father "embarrased", Meghan "surprised" and "mortified", Harry "supportive" ... meanwhile MM made the mistake to use the same photographer for her pap strolls, her mom's pap strolls, her dad's pap strolls, and now the evidence is out there for everyone to see how they have been making money from their newfound money scam.

Still not too late to back out, if Haz hasn't smelt the coffee yet, like Bill couldn't, then well, they get what they deserve. The awakening shall be very rude. More fun for us! More ammunition for a republic (hopefully).

Realistically though, I guess, KP has no other choice but to back Thomas & Doria for the time being. What is going on behind the scenes is a whole other question. And note, it's KP backing them, not BP or St James's P. In any case, if they don't see what they're getting with lovely Murkles, then they are stupider than I thought. I think the grey men are breaking out in hives and going grey all over, skin deep. What a nightmare. Chuck, Camz, Bill, Waity, Haz, Nutmeg make their job a living hell. They are PR disasters and the Winds live on virtually solely good PR.

'It was MY fault': Meghan Markle's half-sister takes the blame for her father's staged paparazzi photos saying SHE suggested it 'for the benefit of the royal family'
Quote
Samantha Markle has claimed it was her idea for Thomas Markle to be photographed in a series of royal wedding shoots where he lives in Mexico - including surfing the net for pictures of the couple and apparently being measured for a suit.

But she claims that it was all to paint him - and Harry and Meghan - in a 'positive' light before he walks his daughter down the aisle at St George's Chapel, Windsor, on Saturday.

The Mail on Sunday claims that together with other pictures taken with his co-operation, they will have netted up to £100,000, but Samantha insists it wasn't done for money.

She tweeted the official Kensington Palace Twitter account and said: 'The bad press over my father doing staged photos is my fault. The media was unfairly making him look bad so I suggested he do positive photos for his benefit and the benefit of the royal family. We had no idea he would be taken advantage of. It was not for money'.

 Prince Harry now as respected and loved around the world as THE QUEEN


THEY could barely be more polar opposites – he the rugged man of action, she a byword for regal grace – but Prince Harry has now joined his grandma the Queen as Britain’s most beloved royal.

The ginger prince today enjoys the same public popularity as the Queen, with 23 per cent of the public vote in a survey.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge followed with 17 and 18 per cent of the vote.

Prince George got 10 per cent of the vote, Princess Charlotte got nine per cent and Prince Charles received eight per cent.
https://www.express.co.uk/news/royal/959094/Royal-news-Prince-Harry-popular-Meghan-Markle-team-Windsor-Queen-Duke-of-Cambridge

Quote
As soon as they have had their wedding and are happily married, the royal couple will go on overseas tours with Netherlands and Dublin tipped to be among the first places they go to.
Prince Harry's press secretary, Jason Knauf, has said: “You'll be pleased to know they're planning a lot of work to happen in the second part of the year, which is going to be incredibly busy."

Prince Harry and the Duke of Cambridge have had to ensure the royals still remain relevant with the Queen still on the throne and the Prince of Wales approaching his seventies.

Dear Prince Harry, if you want to stop the media invading the privacy of Meghan’s family, then I suggest you start with her greedy, grasping, PR-hungry father and siblings

 Last week, I felt rather sorry for Meghan Markle’s father Thomas.

He’d been photographed in an internet café peering at photos of his daughter and Prince Harry, then being measured up for his wedding day suit.

This followed other recent paparazzi pictures of him in Starbucks, looking at British castles, and working out on a dirt track with a resistance band.

Notwithstanding my lengthy career as a journalist, on a human level it was hard not to feel a pang of compassion for a man who had sought a life of reclusive solitude but now finds himself at the centre of the biggest celebrity news story in the world.

Leave it to the DM to mention Profumo and make it seem that Meghan was involved in it (which she could not have been unless she owns a time machine) through the click bait headline.

Christine did not marry a member of the royal family. Big difference.

Avert your eyes Your Majesty! Steamy love scenes from new Harry and Meghan movie imagine the royal couple as you've NEVER seen them before
Quote
To celebrate the occasion Lifetime has released £2.5million movie based on the couple's relationship airing in the US this evening and in the UK on May 14.
And it seems that royal fans may be in for more than they bargained for with new stills from the film seeing the couple in a very compromising position.
One scene sees Prince Harry's (Murray Fraser) romantic proposal to Meghan (Parisa Fitz-Henley) at their Kensington Palace cottage recreated resulting in a steamy love scene.

Well, at least the movie is honest and not some fairly tale lie as some people are trying to spin it.  It depicts Meghan as the wh0re that she is, screwing her way to the top and Harry a lustful playboy who only thinks with the organ between his legs.

I created a thread about it. There were some really cheesy scenes that I highlighted.

The Queen telling Harry that royals were biracial showing M and H a portrait of Queen Charlotte (saying she had African features).

The worst was when Harry thought a lioness who did not attack was a reincarnation of Diana.

^^  Yup.  Why on earth HM allows these two dorks - bill medd and haza, to bring two lowlifes like council cath and murky murkle into the rf is way beyond my understanding.  Can only think the two dorks have something to dangle over HM´s head.  If they want to marry trailer trash fine, but give them the choice  -  marriage to lowlife and be removed from the rf and line of succession, or remain within the rf minus the lowlife.  Quite simple really, not exactly rocket science is it.  She could have done something about all this, instead she has allowed two very low grade families to drag the rf into the sewers, not a decent family between the two. Common as muck, and boy does it show.  I blame HM, she has been so weak and just allowed them to walk all over the rf.  She will go down in history as a very weak woman who could not even control her family, and allowing them to drag them down as low as they can go.  No sympathy from me, those two families have done, and continue to do so, drag the rf down, and all due to her weakness.

Shouldn’t both parents already be in London since the wedding’s less than 5 days away? IMO, the royal family’s playing her and going along as they know that she’ll fail. The hammer should fall later today or early tomorrow.

Harry came across as promiscuous and not ready to settle down. Meghan had nothing to do with the movie and neither did Harry. the movie itself was ridiculous and some of the scenes were comical when they were not meant to be.

Maybe her parents are in London already.

I don't think the wedding will be stopped.

This scene appeared to be the most controversial of the film:

Meghan Markle’s mother, Doria Ragland, has quit her job at a mental health clinic in Los Angeles, a source exclusively tells Us Weekly.

Meghan Markle’s mother, Doria Ragland, quit her job at a mental health clinic in Los Angeles, a source close to Ragland exclusively tells Us Weekly.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s Wedding: Everything We Know So Far
“Doria is no longer working at the mental health clinic in the Los Angeles area. It was Doria’s decision to leave,” the source explained. “She has talked about starting her own private practice, focusing on working with elderly patients.”

News of Ragland’s decision to leave her job comes the same day that Meghan’s father, Thomas Markle, claimed that he will no longer attend their daughter’s upcoming wedding to Prince Harry. Thomas told TMZ on Monday, May 14, that he will not be at the Saturday, May 19, nuptials after footage was released of him seemingly staging photos with paparazzi.

Wedding Essentials Fit For a Princess
The 73-year-old told TMZ that he looks “stupid and hammy” amid the photo scandal and he regrets his decision to listen to the photographers. Thomas also told the publication that he suffered a heart attack a few days earlier, but checked himself out of the hospital because he planned on going to London for the wedding.

Kensington Palace previously confirmed on May 4 that both of Meghan’s parents, who got divorced when she was young, were set to attend the royal nuptials, and Thomas was planning to walk his daughter down the aisle.

Only some shut down my reporting of Doria moving to Ldn as "no way" and she wouldn't quit her job. Well.
And who wouldn't quit their job when your offspring marries into one of the richest families on earth? I don't blame her on this one. Seems a natural move tbh for a parent.

Also this branch of the Markle/ Ragland family seems to be solely in London because they were invited by British TV, not by Murkles.
That seems to make up Murkles's side of the guest list still as her mother only, plus celebrities (incl some Suits cast who've already been spotted in London).

You always have the good and the bad, but when you only have the bad then Murkles can't be a good egg either. Though we know that thanks to her dropping people stone cold one they aren't useful to her, incl husbands and live-in boyfriends.

I know the DM had Murky descended from English royalty and from French Molyneux from Normandy who moved to Lancashire, England but I don't believe it!!!! As I've written before, my ancestor was Fannie Molyneux and married a Dow so just no!!!! It really freaked me out!  :shy: :stop:  Some of us have a varied ancestry but why can't these women just be the commoners they are? Sheesh!

Meghan Markle's mom may have to make a quick transformation -- both in apparel and location -- because she's now the leading candidate to walk her daughter down the aisle.
Doria Ragland was going about her business in L.A. Monday, just 5 days before her daughter gets hitched to Prince Harry. The yoga instructor has been keeping a low profile, but that's about to change.
TMZ broke the story ... Doria's ex-husband, Thomas Markle, was supposed to give Meghan away, but he tells TMZ he's no longer going to the wedding because of the photo scandal. He made a deal with a paparazzi agency for some photo ops in return for cash, and the story presumably pissed off the Royals.
Thomas says he wanted to go to the wedding so badly ... he left the hospital prematurely after suffering a heart attack just 6 days ago because he wanted to attend the nuptials.
No official word on who will be substituting for Thomas, but we're sure it's not her half sister, so our money's on Doria.

DAD SUFFERING NEW CHEST PAINS
... Will Head to Hospital

Meghan Markle's dad is hurting from the fallout over his deal with a paparazzi agency -- hurting both physically and emotionally, and it looks like he's going back to the hospital as early as Monday night.

Thomas Markle tells TMZ, he's experiencing serious chest pains ... this after his heart attack 6 days ago. He says the pains have been triggered by emotional upset. He specifically mentioned his oldest daughter, Samantha Grant, who has been shading Meghan in the weeks leading up to the wedding.

Thomas tells us, "I've been popping Valium for the pain, especially when I hear about my oldest daughter."

He tells us he has not heard from Meghan since TMZ ran the story that he has decided not to go to the wedding and give her away. 

Thomas thinks Meghan's mother -- his ex-wife -- Doria Ragland, is a good choice for walking Meghan down the aisle.

He says he checked out of General Hospital in Mexico a few days ago, which he says is a "charity hospital," but he feels he needs to go to another hospital soon because he's worried he might be on the verge of another heart attack. The coronary he suffered 6 days ago was his second.

Meghan cannot have the sparkly tiara without Harry's full cooperation which she is getting. The DM is the one to blame, trying to get a "story" out of a man with unhealthy eating habits feeling sick and going to hospital. Shame on the media. The man should have been left alone and his two older drama queen children should not have been encouraged by the media. A sick person does not need the stress of being scrutinized by the media and Tom hardly put himself forward until Sammy Jo encouraged him to have his picture taken.

How is it known what sort of communication MEghan has had with her father. The DM is just stirring the cauldron and trying to start a crisis.

15 May   Sentenced to death
This farce has been following the timeline of Anne Boleyn that's why I've been putting the dates and headline on my post. Today, she's was sentenced to death today. Foe Meghan, that means this farce will come to an end today. She's getting it in the press regarding not calling or flying out to see about her dad, only begging a sick man to fly to London to give her away at a wedding in less than 4 days time. It's sick and selfish to say the least. Her mum was photographed yesterday still in LA. Her distant family members are in London to appear on British morning tv to say who knows what. Now Harry's said to be blaming himself for this circus, so he's stressed. The cancellation this farce of a wedding should be done today and let the press unleash the lies and deceit that has gone on since day one. Expose this woman for the lying cheat that she is as well as her grasping lying family.

MEghan's not causing the stress. The paps and media are. Their behavior is just plain vile. If someone plants a camera and photographs the poor man in the ER he or she should be arrested. Harry and Meghan will get married but the press and media are just ghastly the way they treat her father. Would anybody feeling really sick and going to a hospital really want to know that his face will be in the DM with a melodramatic story attached to him. I think the media is sick and selfish not giving the family privacy and watching greedily for the money shot or the money story. And if it makes Meghan look bad so much the better for them. Harry should not blame himself and Meghan should not blame herself. If anything this will bring Meghan and Harry closer together because they are fighting a common enemy: intrusive press. I feel really sorry for her father who is being stalked and was stupid enough to encourage one of the vultures. THanks to Sammy Jo's talks with him.

If someone like Michael Cohen were to say he's being stalked by the press, I'd agree. Anyone in Meghan's family? Heck no!

I'm also going to call BS on blaming Sam. Yes, she has shown herself to be a horrible person and I don't blame Meghan one bit for not entertaining her but, at the end of the day, Tom is a grown man and HE made to decision to partner with a photog for a payout.

If Harry is blaming himself for "everything", then he's thicker dumber and more roped in than I ever thought possible. Someone should club him over so he comes to his senses. One would think Bill would advise his brother better after he married England's finest.

No media or paps are hounding Thomas ffs. He calls them. Media might camp out in front of your place, but if they don't get any attention and good shots, they'll leave. Ongoing shots are a clear sign of collaboration. There are far more interesting people in the world who are never papped and guess why, cause they don't call the media on themseves. Or they are thrown into hot water for a couple of weeks, never respond, complain, explain and it all goes away and media doesn't bother anymore. It's not that hard nor that enigmatic.

Meghan Markle: Queen 'VERY ANGRY’ about dad's staged photo row ahead of royal wedding

Samantha Markle on Dad's 'setup' shots

Meghan Markle, 36, will marry Prince Harry, 33, in Windsor on Saturday.

But with less than a week to go, an insider revealed exclusively to Express.co.uk that The Queen, 92 and Prince Philip, 96, are frustrated by the behaviour of Meghan’s father, Thomas Markle Sr.

It comes after allegations over the weekend Mr Markle, 73, colluded with a photographer to stage photos of himself.

The photos have since sold for huge sums of money among the world’s paparazzi.

The source revealed: “Lord Chamberlain, Her Majesty and the Duke are very angry with Meghan’s father.

“They will speak to him once he arrives about the royal protocol.”

A meeting is taking place today between Kensington Palace and the communication office about Mr Markle's attendance this weekend.

The source added that the royals are “worried” about his behaviour.

They added: "The reason they are worried is because of those photos.”

Mr Markle was due to arrive early this week in the UK ahead of the wedding, however US website TMZ has since reported that he has decided not to attend.

It was believed he would have met senior members of the royal family in the coming week, including the Queen, Prince Philip and Prince Charles.

^^^ No, the RF is that heartless.  They have not changed.  But, I don't see this situation as being heartless.  The heart attack story was a nice spin but the powers that be telling Meghan (which we all know they did) that her father could not attend the wedding over the photos was the right thing to do.  The RF is a family business not a fairy tale, and they have to be the ones writing the narrative by keeping Meghan and her family in line.  Meghan and her family have got to understand that as long she remains with the RF, she and they must follow the RF's rules at all times.  No exceptions.  Once again, Meghan has seen first hand the power and control that the RF is going to hold over her.  Her days of independence are coming to an end and from now it is all about Harry and her in-laws.  The RF's interests come first above all else.  It is such a shame that she is so blinded with the idea that she is going to change the RF and the world (which is never going to happen), when she is up against forces that she can't beat.

Royal biographer Andrew Morton is rushed to hospital after collapsing with suspected stroke just five minutes into a speech
Quote
Mr Morton reportedly collapsed into his chair midway through a talk in central London, where he was promoting his book Wallis In Love: The Untold True Passion Of The Duchess Of Windsor.

The 65-year-old told the shocked audience at Simpson's In The Strand: 'I'm sorry I can't go on.'

He then quickly left the room and an ambulance was called. He is understood to be receiving treatment at the nearby University College hospital.

In any event, that is why I was always surprised he was going to leave Mexico for the wedding as who knows who he owes what to and where they will be waiting.  I thought the RF would get him some protection or something. That is why I said the above.  Perhaps that is wrong and the RF just doesn't want him there, so they arranged this for a nice fee. He is rather gruesome looking these days. But maybe he did have health issues. She is divorced and doesn't need to be walked down the aisle by anyone but her ex.

Meghan Markle's Dad Thomas Now Wants to Walk Daughter Down the Aisle

Meghan Markle's dad has had a change of heart -- this after his daughter contacted him -- and he now wants to go to England and walk her down the aisle ... but there's a serious snag.

Thomas Markle just told us he's back in the hospital after experiencing serious chest pains and doctors are performing a battery of tests on him. He says the doctors told him his heart was "seriously damaged" after his heart attack a week ago.

Thomas tells TMZ Meghan tried calling him Monday but he was not near his phone. She followed up with a text telling him she loved him and was concerned about his health. He says she harbors no ill feelings toward him for making a deal with a paparazzi agency to stage photos of him getting ready for the wedding.

As for the Queen being upset with him, Thomas scoffed, saying, "I don't think the Queen is thinking about what I'm doing."

Thomas says he's thought about it and now believes what he did with the photos was not a serious transgression, although he calls it "stupid." He says he now wants to make the trek to England, telling us, "I *despise* the idea of missing one of the greatest moments in history and walking my daughter down the aisle."

Thomas says if doctors let him out of the hospital he will risk his health and fly to England so he can be with his daughter. Whether he gets released this week is problematic. Thomas says he's lobbied the doctors, asking if he can get out Wednesday, but they have been noncommittal.
As for his eldest daughter, Samantha, talking to the press, Thomas echoed the sentiment our Meghan Markle sources have sounded, saying Samantha has had no real relationship with Meghan as an adult and has no knowledge of Meghan's relationship with Prince Harry.
Bottom line, he says, "Of course I'd walk her down the aisle. This is a historic moment. I'd like to be a part of history."

The family’s been thrown to the press. This is sheer madness and entertainmening because the British press is going to savage them and go hard after Meghan as well they should because she’s the head of this nasty snake; using the royal family for fame and money.

Scroll down to the section where it’s showing the extended family (weed nephew) documenting his stay in London. Who’s paying for this trip and accommodations?  ???
All of the reports of Harry blaming himself has done nothing as this family’s going after the attention and money. They couldn’t care less about the royal family or how Harry feels.
Both parents have criminal records that won’t allow them entry to London, IMO.

"Thomas Markle just told us he's back in the hospital after experiencing serious chest pains and doctors are performing a battery of tests on him. He says the doctors told him his heart was "seriously damaged" after his heart attack a week ago."

That's a major heart attack then, and he was eating fast food after? And media reports on the day of the alleged attack he didn't even leave the house?

Also, flying is a major no no, so forbidden I can't even put it into words. He cannot fly. End of. He can embark on a plane, but he either won't come off alive or will snuff it soon after. Ridiculous.

Him saying that Liz doesn't care what he does is also a major dumb statement. It directly affects the image of the Winds, i.e. the Crown, and that must be protected under any circumstance, nothing is more important, not even their own flesh and blood. So Thom better watch it before he puts his foot into his mouth next time.

^ So much has come out and a lot of it true & with proof, I can't even believe that some still defend Murkles and her parents. :o

Thomas Markle is the latest victim of the abusive relationship between press and palace
The father of the bride has had his life made a misery by the excesses of the paparazzi. There is no sign that anything much has changed since the death of Princess Diana


Who will give Meghan Markle away on the day of her wedding? Well, no woman needs to be given away and no one needs to contend with another royal wedding. Everyone in Britain can look away now and revel in the idea that the monarchy is an institution that has no real effect on its subjects’ lives, loyal or disloyal. The lovely old Queen, corgis and all, is the head of state and head of the church, but why bore on about the constitution when we can consider Meghan’s messy bun? For the way the monarchy functions is by telling us stories that are said to unify our disparate nation – and those stories are of the hatch ’em, match ’em and dispatch ’em variety.

At one time, power meant privacy. Not any longer. The royals are born to rule and we are apparently born to watch, or so it is assumed by those who publish paparazzi shots of them and their adjuncts. Thomas Markle, a retired lighting director, seemed to be living a quiet life in Mexico until his daughter got embroiled with a royal. Long divorced from her mother, he is said to be close to his daughter. Portrayed in some quarters as some kind of bumbling reclusive bankrupt, he actually won several awards during his career. He just doesn’t seem to want to be in the public eye, and why should he?


Paparazzi have apparently rented a house next to his and followed him around, making his life a misery. He then set up some shots of his own, perhaps to try to take control of the images that were circulating. Nothing dramatic. The pictures he apparently posed for show him Googling royal stuff and being fitted for a suit. But he got paid for them, which is said to have caused him embarrassment, and he is now so stressed that he is having chest pains, having had heart attacks in the past. Yesterday, he said he had decided not to come to the wedding, although today, there were reports that he has changed his mind. Poor guy. And what a rum do all this is. It could surely have been avoided if the palace had stepped in earlier to try to warn, prepare and protect him. Meghan and Harry are, understandably, said to be distressed, too.

This pursuit of her father is a lesson to Meghan about what marrying into this family entails. There is not a relationship between the royal family and the press: there is a void, and it is dark.

There are moments of negotiated truce, of course, lines constantly drawn and breached. There are laws, and enquiries; there is hand-wringing, and then there is the reality: a paparazzo once told me that one shot, the right shot, could keep him for a year. One shot – tears, tits and tiaras – will sell all over the world.

Paparazzi used to spit at Princess Diana to get her to react. When they were young, Harry and William were frightened by scuffles among photographers. A press call is never enough. Ultimately, the brothers blamed the paparazzi for their mother’s death, the men who pursued her on speeding motorbikes, who took photographs of her dying. That much we know.

While she was alive, and especially during her divorce, Diana courted certain photographers and journalists to get out her side of the story. She made a deal with the devil, but the thing about the devil is that he doesn’t do guilt, or even shame.

After her death, there was a period of reflection by some newspaper editors. But this lasted five minutes, at most. Diana’s collusion with the press compromised her, but she didn’t have much choice – they would have followed her anyway. Even Piers Morgan, that expert on press intrusion, said: “We in the media were culpable in allowing the paparazzi to become ridiculously over the top.”

^ Tom Sr is one of the victimisers not a victim. This is how the guilty behave by blaming the victim and/of trying to convince people what they know happened really didn't happen after all. It must have all been in their minds... or by trying to spin a different scenario altogether, an imaginary one if you will which benefits themselves which revictimises the victim and so on and on it goes around and around until someone puts a stop to it and BRF had plum opportunity to do so but didn't and so the McMurky tribe will be at it still.

I dont understand anything at all.

If Meghan knew how her father was she should have cut the relationship like she did for the redt of the family. Or try to help. Harry hasnt even mert him. If he had problems with the press they could have hired bodyguards. Same if he had money problems. Right now he should have been in UK. I mean who was going to make his suit??? In london without him or they had to expect for him to know what to where.

Even Doria not being in Uk doesnt make sense to me.

Well some other royal family members already supplied their boob pics and it would have been hypocritical to bar Meghan because of it.

The father's heart condition is between Tom and his doctor.

The mum can do as she pleases.

I maintain that if there had been an extra husband it would have been discovered soon after she started dating Harry.

Meghan Markle 'persuades ex husband to hold off on embarrassing TV show' based on her relationship with Prince Harry after it was causing her 'anguish'
Quote
An unnamed TV executive told the Sun Online: 'Trevor’s project is currently on hold after several months of anguish for Meghan.
'She reached out to him at first through friends and now they have kept up the pressure and Trevor has pushed things back.'
MailOnline has contacted Fox for a comment.  
http://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/article-5732687/Meghan-Markle-persuades-ex-husband-hold-embarrassing-TV-show.html
Maybe her having a child is right otherwise why would this cause her anguish for months? Then again, there probably wasn’t a tv show in the works.

She should take the exit that's been given to her because her family will continue to make fools of themselves in the press and the press will continue to print articles that show her as she is and not the fake image of being a caring humanitarian.

After they are married is when the stories are going to have the most value so I think Trevor is waiting just because he's going to make more money not because he's trying to be that nice to her. That goes for anyone else that's holding out their story.

Tom Srs medical issues are between Tom Sr, his doctor, tmz and now us.

Doria can do as she pleases including a talk show interview with Oprah which invites us to openly question her and her motives.

The BRF shouldn't be forced to accept anyone into their lives, family, institution etc just because some members make doo doo, too. They are not supposed to be just like the common person. They have a publuc and others to answer to.

This is how it works with the media. When you pursue or agree to be interviewed by members of the press you give up a certain amount of ypur privacy. I don't agree with an invasion of privacy or stalking  people but if an individual wishes to remain a private citizen than that person is advised to avoid the press, esp international press. It's that simple. And if a person sells interviews or stages photos for $$$ don't cry later. We are talking about adults here all well advanced in age so nope I'm not buying the woo is me routine.

‘I love you dad’: Meghan’s heartfelt text to her ailing father as she battles to get him to her wedding – and the Palace go into crisis mode over his failing health
Quote
Kensington Palace was in crisis mode as Thomas Markle pulled out of attending his daughter's wedding after saying he suffered a heart attack.
He revealed that Meghan sent him an emotional text message in which she said told him she love him and was concerned for his health.
Doctors are said to have told him his heart was 'seriously damaged' after suffering a heart attack a week ago.
http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-5733049/I-love-dad-Meghans-heartfelt-text-ailing-father.html
Cancellation of the wedding is the only solution as Meghan will have to see her dad. This is the way she can exit. I’d prefer her not to be known as Harry’s ex-fiancé though and have the real reason why she was at IG directing the camera prior to Harry joining her and her co conspirators in the skybox and why Doria looked like she was checking to see if harry was wired. Shortly after this curious event, Meghan and Harry get engaged after the palace scoffed at the idea of her being his girlfriend and merely stated that they don’t involve themselves in Harry’s love life or something to that effect. The press has been using pictures from the the skybox at the IG closing ceremonies now in articles that talk about her Mum.  :cookie:

Meghan Markle's Dad Thomas to Undergo Heart Surgery and Can't Attend Wedding
Thomas Markle is not going to walk his daughter, Meghan, down the aisle Saturday, nor will he travel to England, because we've learned he's dealing with something far more serious ... major surgery.

Thomas tells TMZ, he will go into surgery at 7:30 AM Wednesday. He tells us, "They [doctors] will go in and clear blockage, repair damage and put a stent where it is needed."

TMZ broke the story, Thomas had a heart attack a week ago and began having chest pains Monday. He checked himself into the hospital Tuesday and a battery of tests determined he needed surgery. Thomas said the heart attack did significant damage.

As we reported, he had decided Monday not to attend the wedding because he felt he had embarrassed Meghan and the Royal Family by staging a photo op with a paparazzi agency. Thomas' daughter, Samantha, tells us he received only $1,500 in payment plus a small percentage of the royalties.

Thomas had a change of heart Tuesday ... after receiving texts from Meghan saying she loved him and was concerned for his health. He told us he hoped he could get out of the hospital and travel to England to walk Meghan down the aisle, but now he realizes it's all but impossible given the upcoming surgery.

BTW, Thomas also says he believes the open letter his son, Thomas Jr., wrote to Prince Harry discouraging him from marrying Meghan is what triggered his heart attack.

Now he is blaming his heart attack on his son. He makes excuses for taking $ to stage pics because he felt the need to shine up his image because the mean old press made him look bad.

Does this man take any responsibility for his choices and actions?

Post by: Dark_Destiny on May 16, 2018, 01:07:03 am
I think it's very distressing the stress that the wedding has produced in the Markle Family and I believe the real scumbag is Meghan herself. Her sister Samantha has been called awful names in the media and the poor woman is suffering with Multiple sclerosis and receives little support from Meghan or Prince Harry, and it's the reason why she's so outspoken. If only Meghan had shown herself to be more caring sort of person, she would be providing as much assistance to her sister in her suffering and doing all she can to help find a cure. And now her father Thomas Markle is suffering from a heart condition. I think it's highly unconventional and very rude that she didn't introduce Prince Harry to her family. Even her Mother, Prince Harry had to pay for her mother's plane ticket to Toronto just so she can attend the games and meet with Prince Harry. I would have assumed before the Wedding announcement that Meghan would take Prince Harry to her father in Mexico and introduce him personally and not at the Altar. Perhaps then, the ground rules would have been laid to the Markle family and Thomas Markle would have known how to handle the press. The Press would have been better to call Prince Harry a fool for marrying Meghan than raking the Markle family over the coals.

What is this indecent haste to get married? It's clear to me that Meghan is estranged from the Markles because she is embarrassed. And we know that she's a user. She values friendship on the use of her friend's social connections, and once Meghan has climbed the social ladder, she cuts off her friends when they are no longer useful. She is an obvious gold digger. Kate had better guard Prince William night and day is my advice. Obviously, Prince William is next on the hit list as he will become King one day.

Not only is it fitting that Doria is wearing a British designer, she is also a known fan of the luxury label. She wore a peach Burberry top in October while attending the closing ceremony of the Invictus Games with Meghan and her soon-to-be husband Prince Harry.

This is all going to be VERY interesting. Drama, drama, DRAMA leading up to the whole thing. I was intentionally avoiding watching the wedding on Saturday, but I'm tempted now. It's like a potential train wreck. I CAN'T LOOK AWAY!!!  :oooh:

All the world's a stage: Thomas Markle and the art of the celebrity photo
Quote
Talk to anyone in the industry and one thing quickly becomes apparent: very little in the world of celebrity photography happens by chance. “We’re in a landscape where staged photos are the norm,” says Danny Hayward, who runs a leading picture agency in the UK. He says increasingly strict privacy rulings in UK courts mean publishers are reluctant to take the risk of using a traditional, “snatched” paparazzi shot. “They [staged photos] are safer and there’s no legal comeback or repercussions.”

I'm patiently waiting for the press to do an article about how Meghan's done this since day one. I also hope that she was the one who sat with Oprah during her trip to the US during Easter and then again when she was allegidly in Chicago. She'd think it fine to talk to the media as she's touted as modernizing the monarchy.   :tehe:

^&^^it should implode when her mum's denied entry to the UK due to her rumoured criminal record. Maybe that's why this crap's still being dragged out because she had to be convinced to get on a plane and giving her the VIP treatment would've convinced her as she'd think that she'd just be waived through immigration in Heathrow airport.

Meghan’s mother Doria Ragland ‘furious’ with Thomas Markle

MEGHAN Markle’s parents are barely on speaking terms as the fallout over the US actor’ dad staging paparazzi photos continues.

Yoga instructor Doria Ragland is said to be furious at her ex-husband Thomas Markle for the controversy — and for failing to stop his family from “trashing” their daughter ahead of her wedding to Prince Harry, The Sun reports.

Doria, who was on Tuesday pictured heading to the airport to make her way to the UK for her daughter’s big day, is now tipped to give Meghan away after Thomas said he had to miss the wedding on Saturday and undergo a heart operation.

^Is it the plastic face or the fake b@obs and behind or the shallowness?

Seems like the whole family, including Doria and Meghan are pretty unstable emotionally speaking. Everyone seems upset or mortified these days. Maybe not only Tom Sr needs a chill pill.

It's r$ch from Doria, the 'Burberry model', to be upset with Tom for raise money for his operation while she merches for her own $200K pocket money per appearance :thumbsdown: She's starting to show her true colors, me thinks. I'm starting to guess where her self-centered daughter is getting her demands and delusional expectations that others must like her and must do what she tells them to and must be a slave for her.

Sam is right - Meghan has zero grounds to tell her what to do or not do. Sam is NOT her slave no matter much Meghan would wish that the entire world does her bidding. Neither is her Dad. He is NOT to submit to such and ungrateful nasty woman's demands. He's not a puppy. If PH is stupid enough to do so - it is on him. A very long list of ex boyfriends, husbands, lover and clients have done the run for the hills already.

^^^ You're not the only one. Her slug lips are the most disgusting. And the pretentious glasses so the fashionista looks intellectual, awful.

^ I noticed a striking resemblance between Jessica & Murkles ages ago, in some press pics I wasn't sure which one it was until I read the headline and it clicked into place then at whom I was looking exactly. When the 2 of them are next to each other, they don't look all that alike though, curiously.

^^ Jess is as shallow as a puddle in summer, but her BFF Murkles isn't any better.
It's rich of all of them to be upset with Thomas, as they've all done the pap walks and merching. Disgusting bunch.

^ if he doesnt (and I hope he does) it would be disgraceful if any wedding went ahead...can you imagine getting married days after your father dies. I hope even megan wouldn't be so despicable.

Bridezilla Meghan is going to run down the aisle no matter what, she wants this marriage badly.  And, even if her father is indeed having surgery (which I am not fully convinced of because this all is a bit convenient), she can't be too distraught about it because the wedding is still on and there has been no real discussion about postponement or cancellation. So, clearly she is not losing any sleep over her father's illness nor is she allowing it to stand in her way.  Actions speak louder than words.  In other words, Meghan's actions are not the actions of someone devastated by the loss of her father one way or the other on her wedding day.  If anything, it is more like, "Daddy is out.  Oh well, time to move on and prepare for my big day!"

What still intrigues me about MM is that her own father was a single parent for 12 years while her mother was incarcerated absent.

Now she’s so devoted to mummy, daddy has to take a flying leap.

I wonder what trohapoened that dad was jettisoned like me that. And I don’t mean he’s off message, or an embarrassment. He paid for her fancy schooling plus college.

And that wouldn’t be easy when he’s a single parent.

Was it because of MM’s alleged extra curricular activities?



I have a friend who describes people as ugly. And by that he mean by their actions towards others.

I wouldn’t like her as a friend. I’ll put it that way.

What is the source of Meghan being educated by her father alone?


Title: Re: Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are engaged III
Post by: lesken on May 16, 2018, 07:23:03 pm
^I don't understand the post.  Meghan was educated post elementary school in a decent, although not the best in L.A., private Catholic school and then to a good private university called Northwestern in IL. I don't believe her father educated her. Perhaps the poster meant had custody or raised her alone for awhile.  I don't know that part of her upbringing. However, she had a good education I believe, and that is to her credit.

^^ & ^ Same.
I'd too like to know where the story is coming from that her dad raised her on his own for 12 years. I don't think I heard it before and see it referenced frequently now. What's the story?

Also how come then she suddenly abandoned all her family except her mum (after university-ish)?

She cries tears as fake as her flowers.

I obviously read it wrongly folks. But I thought I read it on this forum. But I'm obviously wrong.

Apologies for that.

But it doesn't show her in a good light that there's even been this confusion regarding his appearance or non appearance at his own daughter's wedding.


And to clear up the confusion, I did mean to say he, Thomas Markle, brought up his daughter alone in the absence of Doria. As in him being a single parent. But I was wrong posters.

Sorry.   :sorry:

Media tactics unravel in run-up to big day
Quote
The families of previous brides understood the rules, even if as so-called commoners they knew that a single narrative of the wedding would preserve the event.
And they knew that if they stepped out of line they would be out in the cold.
But Ms Markle's extended family - most of them with little left to lose as they haven't seen the bride for many a Moon and will spend the wedding in TV studios rather than in St George's Chapel - are different.
They have descended en masse on Britain, all with stories to tell and bank balances to improve.
But for the moment there is that thing that nature abhors, a vacuum. And every well-laid plan of the p
