I will say no more.

If you look at the history of the Sussex title, it's very interesting.

The royal family is VERY good at signaling. The 1st Duke of Sussex married twice and BOTH times he married without permission, so his two wives never received the title because the royal family/monarch never approved the match or gave permisson.

PH was given that title, and is the second Duke of Sussex.

Coincidence?

Post by: Albany on May 19, 2018, 10:35:42 pm
^Apparently so.

But he was also a rebel that, according to historians, went against the grain and did what he wanted. Not unlike our PH. The 1st Duke's  marriage history might be an unfortunate coincidence, or it might not.

Or, PH could have been given the title because HM really did only have 3 to choose from, and the alternatives posed even bigger problems than the one that was ultimately picked. We'll never know.  :dontknow:

Well, the first Duke of Sussex was a very religious man and with his first wife, he didn't consummate the marriage until a few days after the ceremony. To be sure.

Very intelligent, so very unlike Harry.

^^^ Consummating is the only real talent that Meghan ever had, which is why the Duchess of SusSEX is so fitting.  It's clear based on her first two failed marriages that she has nothing else to offer the relationship after the passion part ends and her third marriage to Harry will be no different.  Even he will eventually get tired of her crotch.

Maybe her often used crotch gave him a very nasty disease that he had to marry her.  :ick:  He seems to look like he can’t stand being near her or touch her and has to force the pda.
I’m waiting now for idiots to object to her title of Sussex and having to curtsy to higher ranked royals and pushing her way to be the center of all things. This woman has brought the crassness Hollywood liberal crap to the royal family that now can’t be taken seriously and will feel the backlash of the people who they’ve lied to saying that she didn’t get help getting her visa and other legal issues sorted by them. If the royals didn’t help her, she would’ve had to wait like everyone else. She also wouldn’t be fast tracked and allowed to break all of the long standing tradition rules that others such as Waity and Wills had to follow. It does seem like there was coerced because of the bizarre nature of everything that’s gone on since the quick engagement and her being left to her own devices.

Meghan Markle’s mum Doria Ragland to be interviewed by telly veteran Oprah
The landmark chat with Meg's mum is shrouded in secrecy as to what the pair will talk about and when it will aiR


DORIA Ragland is believed to be filming an interview with Oprah Winfrey while both are in London.

Oprah, 64, arrived at the wedding alone after securing the landmark chat with Meg’s mum. The US talkshow icon later described the day as “extraordinary”.

People where I live are saying they didn't watch the supposed Royal Wedding & are questioning how the RF allowed her to marry PH & one of our local tv channels allows people to call in on any of the news reported & played back on the news to hear what people think of whatever takes place & the comments aren't positive at all.

Meghan Markle Chooses Her First Royal Job

She has only been a member of what Prince Philip calls “the Firm” for three days, but Meghan Markle is already preparing for her role as a working royal.

Sources at the Queen’s Commonwealth Trust, of which Harry is the president, have told Vanity Fair that Meghan plans to start working with the organization imminently. “It’s going to be one of the first official roles Meghan takes on,” the source said. “There have already been talks, and when Meghan was asked when she wanted to get involved she replied ‘May 20.’”

The role would fit with the couple’s ambitions to focus their efforts within the Commonwealth countries and realms, where they would particularly like to put the spotlight on young people. The Queen’s Commonwealth Trust works to provide small loans and funding to young people throughout the Commonwealth who are leading their own nonprofits or otherwise embarking on projects that serve the greater good.

Give Meghan Markle Her Instagram Account Back

When news first broke, back in October 2016, that Prince Harry was reportedly dating an American actress named Meghan Markle, the hunt for intel on the (at the time) relatively under-the-radar Suits star began. Meghan had been a lead on the USA series for several seasons, and also had her own lifestyle blog, The Tig, but she was not (unless you were a rabid Suits fan) a household name or tabloid fixture or anything of the sort.

^ Also seeking the limelight, of course she'd immediately "work", gotta get the clothes and all and be seen!

Btw, so she "designed" bracelets for her friends & Kate as "keepsakes" and now they're being sold, literally a day after the wedding. Somethig's fishy and it looks suspiscouly like she's cashing in and merching, b/c the jeweller sure as heck shouldn't and wouldn't sell the same bracelets w/o M's permission, that's a massive loss of connection and you can't convince that M isn't cashing in. Maybe she's cashing in in the same roundabout way as Kate: via her family, in this case Doria. Doria is the name in the contract and gets the money officially, but M's behind it.

^since Camilla called her a star and her engagements with Harry, she acted like the few that gathered cane to see her, and now the American Hollywood wedding that seemed more focused on her and her mum sitting by herself to push the “I’m biracial and making history crap”, the celebrities saw this as more of a movie set/fake romance/ wedding so what was given to them afterwards was considered junk and not worth keeping for nostalgia because it’s not a nice gesture to sell gift on eBay shortly after receiving it.
The celebrities also acted like they weren’t at a royal wedding or an historic place where selfies and such would be proud spin. Usually, there’s official photographs hired to take the guests pictures like they do at polo matches. I guess the odd seating arrangements for the guest they found strange as celebrities were seated in the main seats and not the royal family or what should’ve been family and friends of the bride and groom. Using their nicknames and not their Christian names, Rachel and Henry must’ve seemed odd too.

Post by: Little light on May 22, 2018, 11:56:26 pm
i do wonder if they, the Palace etc, allowed them to use their nicknames so they could get the marriage annulled in future?

They could say MM never told us about X,Y or Z so the marriage was a 'legal fraud'.

Just thinking out loud why TPTB would allow it too.I found it strange too.

When KM graduated, it was as Catherine Middleton, yet when she took her wedding vows, it was as Catherine Elizabeth Middleton. Her full name.

I don't think she's right for her present role in the BRF, solely because she uses people to advance her own agenda. And Harry is but a stepping stone to her.

I think the BRF are in their death throes right now, and it's how long they can stay afloat without sinking.

The wedding I saw their christian names were at the very beginning of the ceremony: I heard Harry and Megan's full christian names given and after asking was there anyone who objected to their marriage, they were referred to as Harry and Megan for the rest of the ceremony!  It was a beautiful ceremony, the Queen gets her "props" as they say in America to show how to blend British and American cultures together.  I'm loving the fact I know the area where Doria lives because I know the Los Angeles area.  I am laughing at the fact that some people are totally clueless as to where Megan comes from.  For some it is "La La Land" but for others it can be a "Stairway to Heaven".  Megan is not the "first American nor non-white" to marry into European royalty!  People please get a grip.  Know history and why certain things do not happen by accident.  Everything serves a purpose.  I will always remember the day Harry's parents marry as being joyous, full of hope and happiness for the young couple.  We all know how that fairy tale ended.  What we witness this past weekend was no fairy tale but two people just trying to make their way in an ever changing world!  And I for one, will be hoping and praying that Diana's dream for her sons will find the happiness that she was robbed of in her life.  Peace to you all! :BFF:

What bracelet did she design?

Snowpea's answer was perfect!! :thumbsup:

It's this

See the Bespoke Wedding Bracelet Meghan Markle Commissioned for Her Best Friends

It’s not every day that your jewelry gets worn to a royal wedding.

But that’s exactly what happened for jeweler Lisette Polny, founder of Zofia Day, when Meghan Markle‘s friends wore her pieces on Saturday.

“It’s an overwhelming honor to be part of history and for my pieces to be given as a keepsake for this momentous occasion,” Polny tells PEOPLE exclusively.

As a token of her appreciation, Meghan gifted six of her best friends — and new sister-in-law Kate Middleton! — with a solid gold disc bracelet, suitably called the “Kensington.” The bespoke design in yellow gold was made specifically for the royal wedding and approved by Meghan herself. The special piece is now available to buy for $450.

While they weren’t official bridesmaids, Meghan’s closest confidantes, including Benita Litt and Jessica Mulroney, were by her side on her big day — and it was Meghan’s wish that they be given something special to remember the occasion.

http://people.com/royals/see-the-bespoke-wedding-bracelet-meghan-markle-commissioned-for-her-best-friends/

Murky must be profiting off of this, because usually "bespoke" gifts like these, that are for a special event and a limited n° of people & been made to the specification of the commissioner of the pieces (here M), stay exclusive and can't and shouldn't (for good future business relations) be sold on in greater quantities to the public.

Not exactly novel is it, seen many similar over the years.  Pretty bland and boring.  Allegedly selling for $450....  Sorry, if I was shopping for a nice bracelet that one would not even take my eye, would just skim past it.  Cant´s see what the fuss is about it.   Maybe she should have had their initial or name engraved on the discs, make it a bit more personal, unless they are hoping to sell them for mega bucks themselves.  Murky designed it, what was there to design we ask ourselves.  A chain and a disc, seriously, are they for real these people.

And she saves dogs or is it her dog? Or is she appearing as an animal loving person who abandoned one of her dogs.

And the white horse is runnng away as fast as it can.

And the snake is the snake in the Garden of Eden. Eve tempting Adam.

She got married on the same day Anne Boleyn lost her head.

And on first reading it, I thought it was love and such. Too much speed reading.


Lovely idea. But  I wonder if her dad would've wanted to include a tv, cos that's how he saw his daughter get married.

Just teasing. I really like it.  :flower:

Ax - In honor of the Anne Boleyn execution/wedding date and the fact that everyone gets axed out of her life at some point

Dog - In recognition of the dog she abandoned

Horse - Bolting seems to be in her nature

Snake - Because she is one

Layers because she uses that term more than the British press employs the word "keen."

^^ It's not a dumb question :) Coat of arms and crests used to be identifiers for families, companies, trades etc and have been in heavy use for 900 years, the more faff there is, the richer the history (eg compare Meg's or the Midds's with eg the Winds's), as every new member that marries in, can apply sth off their coat of arms into the offsprings' (eg Diana's family's, the Spencer's, scallops in W&H's).
Nowadays I get that families continue to use the ones they've had, but they're not needed anymore. I don't even know what they use them for exactly, I mean they can appear on the letterhead, but for the Winds the cypher (you see above M's, Fly just posted it) of the person (also unique to the person and a personal identifier) or the place's stationery (e.g. the KP letterhead).
What these things used to be used for they aren't really needed anymore, due to modern means and whatnot.
Largely, it's prestige. M certainly had no need whatsoever for her personal coat of arms. It's not necessary (anymore) for anything but to have a shiny thing and now she can have a signet ring made and wear it like the Midds :rolleyes:

Post by: HRHOlya on May 25, 2018, 09:35:53 pm
^ Indeed!

^^ I trailed off.. oops, meant to write that even as letterhead whilst it can be used, it's useless as the Winds's traditional letterhead is either their personal cypher or the place's letterhead.
Even if there is sth that M needed a crest for, she would then simply use H's. That's how it is for wives who marry into families with crests but don't have a family one or their own.

I'm expecting her to get a rude awakening when more of her dirt, the things she didn't want Revor to release, gets published anyway and the royal family doesn't protect her because she's not family. The way that Charles booted her out of his garden party attested to that not to mention the queen looking at her with disgust during the celebrity wedding.
Kate has her own letterhead and uses Wills when the announcement when it involves both of them.
Shouldn't their be a chain around the bird denoting marriage to Harry? It's Harry's coronet around the bird's neck without the chain. Her ability to communicate's stiffled now because she doesn't have her own social medai presence now and will have to adhere to royal protocol, but of course she wont follow and will continue to get her things out via her associates like Mio.

Meghan Markle: The wellness guru she could have been
Both Meghan and Gwyneth's lifestyle brands have something in common: they are part of a rising online Wellness movement, whose devotees say is devoted to positivity, spirituality and improving one's lot in life by starting from within.
Wellness is a rising part of the growing online content marketing industry, where the opinions and philosophies of influencers on social media now carry more weight with some than conventional wisdom.
According to research firm Technavio, the global content marketing industry will be worth $412bn (£297bn) by 2021.

A press core in a completely different country, who operate under different rules, who they can't put a gag on or threaten with access to keep things under wraps. I think things will get especially interesting when she finally cuts out Jessica and/or Lindsey. My money is on Jessica leaking all the dirt to the right people.

Jeeprs, they lies they are pushing out.  Would any family want one of their younger generation to marry into the markle family, they are so dysfunctional it is untrue.  They don´t know a lie from the truth, make up stories, then make up another story that is another lie.  I know the rf lie like crazy, and maybe they are drug barons from behind the scenes, but by jingo the murkle lot take the biscuit for low end dysfunctional.  Do these pulications actually realise the public are well aware of murky, her mean, unpleasant ways, her arrogance, the lies, you name it.  Her association with Soho House, too many things to list.   The media must think the public are brain dead, what an insult to our intelligence.  She has caused no end of trouble for the rf, and I have no doubt they are sick to the back teeth with her.  Why they let her in I will never know, haza has to have some bad hold over the rf, because no way do that family want her.  They don´t have to tell us that, we can see from their body language, their faces and their distance from her.

How Meghan Markle Is Diving Into Duchess Life: 'She's Stoked'

It's been just over 11 days since Meghan Markle wed Prince Harry in a fairy tale ceremony at Windsor Castle, and her transformation into the Duchess of Sussex already appears to be complete.

She debuted her new royal look — complete with polished side chignon (bye-bye, messy bun!) — during a Buckingham Palace garden party on May 22. And with the royal wedding behind her, Meghan is now ready for the real work to begin.

“She’s not going to want to be a quiet princess and simply open hospitals or cut ribbons,” a royal insider tells PEOPLE in this week’s cover story.https://people.com/royals/meghan-markle-diving-into-duchess-life/

The meaning of beige tights: they show what the Windsors will do to Meghan
The Duchess of Sussex isn’t bringing her plucky Americanness to the royals, as many had hoped. Instead, they are forcing their flesh-coloured hosiery on her

Yo, can I get a deep dive on royals and tights? I notice Meghan was in ivory-tinged nylons for her first engagement of married life in May, with the temperature showing 22C. What’s going on?

Marina, west London

Requested deep dive completed. You are not alone, Marina of west London, in noticing the awful beige tights Meghan wore last week. They immediately became the most talked about fashion item of the month, gazumping Meghan’s wedding dress. Think of it as that ubiquitous “distracted boyfriend” meme, in which a man eyes up some woman to the disgust of his girlfriend. Us = the man. New woman = Meghan’s new tights. Girlfriend = Meghan’s wedding dress. Really, who needs columns any more when we can all just communicate in memes?

Anyway, these tights were shocking for two reasons: first, Meghan had heretofore, like all good Cali girls, always gone bare-legged and, two, they were “flesh coloured” but not the colour of her actual flesh. Perhaps a courtier saw her coming down the hall, spotted those unacceptably naked legs, ran into Beatrice or Kate’s room, rooted through their laundry basket and pulled out the first pair of half-clean tights they found. Remember how we were all so excited two weeks ago that a mixed-race woman marrying into the royals proved the Windsors were finally shaking off their racist not-too-distant past? Well, there were always going to be bumps on their journey to the present day, I guess.

It's not racist to dress according to code. I'm sure that all women there wore pantyhose. With the outfit that she wore beige should be the color of her pantyhose.

They are making a race issue out of everything. Pantyhose is a must acc to protocol (ie the rules Liz set out) and Murky could have found a pair that suit her skin tone, she managed to do so before the wedding. Also some members here as well as others have pointed out that she likely chose that hue to match the see through bits of the dress. And don't forget, Diana used to wear all kinds of tights, so maybe Murky thought she could set a fashion hit with tights like Diana by switching it up.

Meghan Markle’s Mother Spotted Looking Glum In L.A. After Being Snubbed By Daughter
Quote
Days after being snubbed by her own daughter, Doria Ragland was spotted looking glum near her L.A. home. As RadarOnline.com exclusively reported, Meghan Markle hasn’t even spoken to her yoga instructor mom ever since she stood by her side at the royal wedding.
“Doria’s heartbroken and nervous and feels Meghan’s shutting her out,” the source told Radar. “She’s called, texted and emailed, but nada. Doria’s biggest fear, one that she’s felt ever since Meghan told her she was engaged to the Prince, is that she’d never hear from or see Meghan again.”
“This is classic Meghan,” the insider explained, adding “she’s Royalty now. She’s part of that family and now she’s ice cold to everyone, including her own mother.”
As Radar readers know, Doria Ragland felt miserable after she was forced to sign a non-disclosure agreement for the royal family.
“Doria can’t eat, speak or otherwise open her mouth about Meghan unless she clears it with the Royal family,” a source close to the new Duchess of Sussex told to Radar.
“They’ve silenced her and made her sign a non-disclosure agreement.”

 :thumbsup:

Meghan alienated her entire family the moment she became engaged to Harry, so it is not surprising that she is ignoring her mother.  She believes that she is better than her family now.  I think it's going to be a bit of poetic justice when she wakes up one day alone in KP with no friends or family while Harry is off having affairs.  She will definitely get her wish of being Diana 2.0 then.

As for her mother, I have no sympathy.  After hearing about the planned interview with Oprah, it is hard to know whether Doria is broken hearted about the lack of communication from her daughter or the fact that she is not allowed to talk or gain any fame from her daughter's recent meal ticket marriage.

Quote
Laura Kennedy: Prince Harry’s new wife has sacrificed her freedom and her career


At a time when so much of the way we interpret reality is funnelled through gender and race, Meghan Markle’s inclusion in the British royal family is bound to draw comment. That she is an American, a divorcee and a biracial person born into an ordinary family (whatever that means) would seem to disqualify her, at least historically, from marrying a British prince. Markle seems very likable – she certainly looks and behaves like a princess – and the bond between her and her new husband appears genuine and tender. In a world often characterised by hardship and unkindness, the wedding was a lovely story. In feminist terms, however, it is more complicated. So when I put down my slice of Victoria sponge I noticed some inconsistencies in people’s reactions.

Little is less progressive than marrying into aristocracy and living a cave existence that suffragettes died to pull women out of

Feminists approach women’s choices from different perspectives. According to one of them, there are feminist choices – those that empower – and nonfeminist choices – those that disempower, based on complicity in what the patriarchy dictates women should do, such as stepping away from a career in favour of staying at home and focusing on motherhood. But every form of feminism considers the world primarily in terms of power structures, and the goal is always to subvert the patriarchy as the movement interprets it.

Most friends I spoke with were intrigued by the royal wedding, and described it as progressive, which surprised me. They described Markle, as she describes herself, as a feminist, and considered the marriage a progressive triumph.

Surely, if you believe in the concept of nonfeminist choices, this marriage would be a problem. Little is less progressive than marrying into aristocracy and living a cave existence that suffragettes died to pull women out of: a life of domestication where you are not free to express your opinion, must change your appearance as “modesty” dictates, and have at least your public persona defined almost entirely by your relationship with your husband and in-laws.

Sure, Markle will do philanthropic work stemming from her marriage to a prince. She will do so, she says, in the mantle of feminism and equality. The irony of this, coming from a woman who has sacrificed her freedom and her career for marriage, and chosen to marry into one of the most conservative, classist and wealthy families on the planet, seems lost on both feminists and the media. The choice to sacrifice career in favour of marriage and motherhood is not considered acceptable in modern feminism. Markle’s choice to marry is, with luck, a source of great personal joy. But it is not progressive.

Their completely uncritical fascination with the royal wedding suggests that many women, despite their beliefs about gender and class equality, still want to be princesses. The notion of being saved from harsh reality by an exorbitantly wealthy man, and sheltered in a private estate or castle, while being admired for very traditional characteristics such as beauty, grace and elegance is clearly still intoxicating to many. These women dream of marriage as a ticket out of the ordinary lives they have worked to build for themselves.

This seems incompatible with any respectable form of feminism. Yes, the wedding was lovely, but it was not a triumph for equality. To marry into an ivory tower yet claim to represent equality is madness. To make such a marriage is to condone inequality in the most public and fundamental sense.

Why the Queen Feels Meghan Markle Needs a 'Steadying Hand
While Meghan Markle has already proven adept at navigating royal outings alongside her husband Prince Harry, she is still very much in learning mode.

With her first solo public duty alongside Queen Elizabeth, 92, scheduled for June 14, the newly minted Duchess of Sussex is being immersed in just how the reigning monarch — who has more than seven decades of experience under her belt — conducts an “away day.”

“The Queen knows the potential pitfalls of not giving [new members] a guiding hand,” Ingrid Seward, author of the recent biography of the Queen and Prince Philip, My Husband & I, tells PEOPLE in this week’s issue. “It’s all about the monarchy. She can’t expect Meghan to know everything without being shown.”

“She doesn’t want 70 years of hard work to be for nothing,” adds Seward.”I’m sure she feels Meghan needs a steadying hand in these early days.”

The monarchy is cooked as a result of her inaction so her 70 years of hard work will soon count for Diddley squit

And as for murky needing a steadying hand, the only thing murky needs is a big boot up her backside to propel her back to the US of A

Duchess on duty! Meghan's first official role as a member of the monarchy is revealed as she formally becomes part of the The Royal Foundation

    The new Duchess of Sussex has officially become part of the organisation
    It's in process of being renamed The Royal Foundation of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and the Duke and Duchess of Sussex
    Meghan's first engagement with William and Kate was Royal Foundation Forum
    Newlywed made her Trooping The Colour debut in London on Saturday 

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/article-5838355/Meghan-formally-Royal-Foundation.html

Who'd have expected that?? What a surprise!! Not.


Stella McCartney says Meghan’s wedding reception gown was her last chance to reflect her ‘human side’ before taking on ‘austere’ royal role

    Stella McCartney has spoken of 'pride' at make the stunning halterneck dress
    Meghan wore floor-length design for evening reception at Frogmore House
    Appearance was Meghan's final appearance before taking on her 'very austere, very serious' royal role as the Duchess of Sussex, McCartney told the BBC

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/article-5838885/Stella-McCartney-says-Meghans-gown-chance-reflect-joy.html

Well Stella, that's a load of bollocks, isn't it? Just because she can't pose in underwear anymore or do her job in underwear or with a crop top, that doesn't mean that her style now is "austere", "inhuman" or "has no personailty". I'd call the dress code requirements now "classy", "dignified" and "professional", but maybe that's just me.
Her first trooping appearance was also anything but "serious", "inhuman" or "austere".

Will Meghan win an EMMY? The Duchess of Sussex has been put forward for a prestigious acting award for her final season of Suits
Meghan could be in the running for an Emmy - after being put forward for an award for her final season of the legal drama.

The former actress, 36, could be nominated in the Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series category, for her role as Rachel Zane.

A representative for the USA Network has confirmed that the Duchess of Sussex has been put forward for consideration in the category.

Meghan has not previously won any major awards for her role in Suits, meaning this will be her last chance to pick up a prestigious gong.http://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/article-5839443/Meghan-Markle-win-Emmy-forward-acting-award.html#comments


DM picked it up from ET

The Duchess of Sussex has been submitted for Emmy consideration in the Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series category by USA Network for her role Rachel Zane on Suits, a network rep confirmed to ET on Tuesday. It is not unusual for USA to submit the main cast for Emmy voting.

Markle's category is highly competitive, with standout stars like Chrissy Metz from This Is Us; Thandie Newton from Westworld; The Handmaid's Tale actresses Ann Dowd, who won the award last year, and Alexis Bledel; Millie Bobby Brown from Stranger Things; the ladies from Orange Is the New Black; and Sophie Turner and Maisie Williams from Game of Thrones among the actresses vying for a nomination. The likelihood of Markle -- who has never earned a major award nomination for Suits -- slipping in for a surprise nomination for her final season is slim.


Patrick J. Adams, who portrayed Markle's onscreen husband, Mike Ross, was also submitted for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series, along with Gabriel Macht (Harvey Specter). The other main Suits cast submitted for consideration include Rick Hoffman (Louis Litt) for Supporting Actor, Sarah Rafferty (Donna Paulsen) for Supporting Actress and Gina Torres (Jessica Pearson) for Guest Actress.

Despite Markle's new royal status, the 36-year-old newly retired actress being in the mix for an Emmy is not out of the ordinary. USA Network has always submitted the main cast every year, but none have received an Emmy nomination for the first six seasons. Could this finally be the year someone from the cast gets recognized at the Emmys? It's highly unlikely, as Adams -- who received a surprise Screen Actors Guild Award nomination in 2012 -- is the only actor who has received any type of awards recognition in the past.

https://www.etonline.com/could-meghan-markle-earn-an-emmy-nomination-for-her-final-season-of-suits-104039

Oh come on no way she should be put in the running for an Emmy during her suit run she has yet to give an Emmy worthy performance. If thats a big if she get a nom its only because she's now a duchess and they think she might just show up

At best, again stoopid H has his finger in this, or M directly. Not sure I can rule out M not being behind this, putting whispers out through "her people". It would certainly enrich her mantle: trophy for her career, a ring with stones from Diana, a title, a coat of arms, living in Europe, European citizenship winking at her, living in a palace with staff...

The attempt (by the Emmys, Suits, and maybe M) is so transparent though, it's beyond laughable.

Considering how little respect the community has for her, I doubt she would get enough votes should she secure a nom - which is a stretch in and of itself.

Meghan Markle could earn an Emmy nomination for 'Suits' despite royal status
Hollywood refuses to give up on Meghan Markle.

The American actress, who became the Duchess of Sussex after her May 19 wedding to Britain’s Prince Harry, could be in the running for an Emmy award.

A rep for USA Network confirmed to Fox News Wednesday the 36-year-old’s name was submitted for the “Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series” category for her role as Rachel Zane in USA Network’s legal drama “Suits.”


"Meghan Markle was entered by the awards consultants for the USA Network," a Television Academy spokesperson told Fox News. "They verified that she and/or her reps were aware that the entry was being made and had advised to go ahead and proceed with the submission.”

Markle has not previously won any major awards for her character, meaning this could be her last chance to receive the prestigious honor as she confirmed in November her retirement from acting.

But despite Markle’s royal status, being potentially nominated for an Emmy isn’t unusual. ET noted USA Network has always submitted the main cast of “Suits” every year, but none have received an Emmy nomination for the first six seasons

EDEN CONFIDENTIAL: Did Meghan Markle ask sleazy publicist Max Clifford to make her a star in Britain
During her television interview after her engagement to Harry was announced, Meghan Markle insisted she ‘didn’t know much’ about the Prince before meeting him on a blind date.
The American former actress did, however, have a long-standing interest in becoming famous in this country.
Indeed, word reaches me that Meghan was so keen she even consulted the notorious ‘kiss-and-tell’ publicist Max Clifford.
‘Meghan spoke to Max when she was looking for British representation,’ claims one of Clifford’s friends.
Another source close to the spin doctor alleges: ‘She considered Max while weighing up who was best placed to make her a star in the UK.’
A Kensington Palace source is, understandably, eager to play down the claims, insisting: ‘This is not true.’
Of course, Clifford is no longer around to give his side of the story, as he died in December at the age of 74, days after suffering a heart attack.
Intriguingly, however, Meghan, now 36, did end up being represented by one of Clifford’s proteges, 38-year-old Jessica Huie.

The Londoner, who worked for Clifford for some six years, was employed by Meghan from 2015 with the task of raising her profile. She certainly succeeded: Meghan met Harry the following year.
Like Meghan, Jessica is the daughter of mixed-race parents and said of the Duchess earlier this year: ‘I liked her. We connected and we got talking about race. I found her impressive: she was quick-witted and honest.’
Whatever the truth of the claims, Meghan certainly had a lucky escape. Clifford was arrested in December 2012 on suspicion of sexual offences, as part of Operation Yewtree, soon after Meghan is said to have approached him.
In 2014, he was found guilty of eight counts of indecent assault on four girls and women aged 15 to 19 and sentenced to eight years in prison.
The publicist for famous names including Kerry Katona and the late Jade Goody, Clifford was best known for selling tawdry accounts of affairs to red-top newspapers, which helped bring down Conservative ministers such as David Mellor.

Meghan Markle could earn an Emmy nomination for 'Suits' despite royal status
Hollywood refuses to give up on Meghan Markle.

The American actress, who became the Duchess of Sussex after her May 19 wedding to Britain’s Prince Harry, could be in the running for an Emmy award.

A rep for USA Network confirmed to Fox News Wednesday the 36-year-old’s name was submitted for the “Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series” category for her role as Rachel Zane in USA Network’s legal drama “Suits.”


"Meghan Markle was entered by the awards consultants for the USA Network," a Television Academy spokesperson told Fox News. "They verified that she and/or her reps were aware that the entry was being made and had advised to go ahead and proceed with the submission.”

I guess being married to Harry has not been what Meghan thought it would be, so she is now trying to use an Emmy as an excuse to get back to LA in order to get the attention that she is so desperately craves.

Meghan Markle shamed for bearing her shoulders by online trolls claiming she 'craves the limelight'
Online trolls have shamed newlywed Meghan Markle for bearing her shoulders during a royal engagement, claiming she broke protocol.
The Duchess of Sussex wore a stunning dusty pink Carolina Herrera dress to the Trooping the Colour ceremony - but the off-shoulder cut stirred controversy, with some claiming "she'll never be a lady".
Others declared she "craves the limelight" as they slated her outfit choice and compared her to the Duchess of Cambridge.

Prince Michael of Kent snuggles his wife in striking portraits celebrating the Royal couple's ruby wedding anniversary
The Duchess of Sussex (below )has picked up a very unusual Royal nickname, my Palace moles reveal. Meghan was initially christened ‘Tungsten’ by Prince Charles – because she is tough and unbending, just like the very strong metal – and the affectionate name has stuck.

Revealed: Prince Charles' VERY unusual nickname for daughter-in-law Meghan - and it's inspired by her 'tough' and 'unbending' nature
Meghan, 36, was initially christened 'Tungsten' by Prince Charles because she is tough and unbending, just like the very strong metal, according to palace sources.
While it might not appear like the most flattering of comparisons, it is intended as a compliment by Charles, 69, and the affectionate name has stuck.
Comments:
Meh it happens, Meh land, United States, 4 minutes ago
Let me tell you guys more about Tungsten and then decide what Charles really thinks about her. Tungsten is a difficult metal to work with and exposure to it causes cancer. When melting, it bubbles, makes hissing noises and foams like a rabid dog, thus also know as wolfram...

Tungsten - cold, hard, brittle and hard to work with.

Someone who is tough and unbending generally doesn't do well in marriage, since for it to be successful, it requires quite a bit of compromise.

Meghan Markle Makes Her Royal Ascot Debut in Monochrome Givenchy

Meghan continues working with the designer for her latest major appearance.

Since returning from her honeymoon just over a week ago, Meghan Markle has been keeping up an extremely busy schedule, as she checks off a whole slew of “firsts” in her new role as the Duchess of Sussex. She’s handled Trooping the Colour, as well as her first “off-site” day trip with the Queen, and on Tuesday, Meghan arrived at her first Royal Ascot, the formal carriage procession that marks the beginning of a five-day racing extravaganza in Berkshire.

Meghan arrived for the festivities in a carriage along with Prince Harry (donning a top hat), Prince Edward, and Countess Sophie, with Meghan spotted “sharing a joke” with Sophie as they made their way onto the premises. (It’s always amusing how even the slightest whispered aside at these events, when everyone is watching, become used as proof of a great convivial bond.)

Meghan again wore a Givenchy look, after working with the designer for both her wedding and her dress for her day with the Queen. And, as she has for nearly all her major events since becoming a royal, Meghan decided to wear a dress in the white-cream-beige family, as she chose a white collared dress, accessorized with a white and black Philip Treacy hat. (A royal correspondent for The Sun deemed the look “Audrey Hepburn-esque.”)

Meghan Markle is turning into a Kate Middleton mini-me and that's the last thing she needs

Stella McCartney was right.


Just days ago, she declared that the high neck silk crepe gown she designed for Meghan Markle’s second wedding look was her “last moment of joy” before joining the “austere...and serious royal life”. The comments sounded slightly hyperbolic - after all, what measures of austerity do one of the wealthiest royals in the world adhere to?

But Meghan’s slow dissolution of her individuality just weeks after her wedding doesn’t bode well for her future royal life, one which we were promised would be a form of female driven intelligence in Christian Louboutins; a sort of Amal Clooney with a crown type.

The royals’ limits aren’t financial ones, but personal boundaries, and that family acts as an effective vaccum that sucks up every bit of your personal identity.

After nearly 20 years with Prince William, Kate Middleton has mastered the complexities of life in the fishbowl, one which requires women to look, dress and behave in a certain way to honour traditions of the past while remaining just ‘woke’ enough for younger fans.

 In Meghan case it wouldn't hurt her to look more like Kate Middleton because at least Kate has some taste in style. Like I said before her style is sex kitten Hollywood LA bohemia.  she doesn't look bad in that type of dress.

The issue with Sparkles is that I believe there were certain expectations that she’d be more mature, experienced in public attire and savvy on public/media display.  She is not.  The fact is, she had wardrobe people who managed her better in Hollyweird than the BRF.  Her own sense of style is quite dismal left on its own as his her behavior.  We get slinky catwalk one time then overwhelmed clingy kitten the next.  It’s a shame she’s such a phony because it shows.

Meghan Markle Pregnant With Twins NOT Confirmed By Palace, Despite Report
Kensington Palace did not confirm Meghan Markle is pregnant with twins, despite a new tabloid cover story. Gossip Cop has actually already busted false claims that Markle and Prince Harry are expecting. Now we can set the record straight again.

The new cover of OK! exclaims, “Meghan’s Twins Announcement: It’s A Boy & A Girl!” The front of the issue also features a teaser declaring, “Palace Confirms.” But Markle did not make any public announcement, nor has the palace issued any confirmation that she’s pregnant. This cover was deceptively designed to lure in readers. After consumers shell out $5.99 for a copy, it becomes clear inside the issue that the tabloid has no legitimate proof at all to back up this narrative. In fact, the allegations are based solely on unnamed, untraceable “insiders,” who claim without evidence that Markle is “already expecting Prince Harry’s offspring.”

It’s alleged, according to these unidentifiable “palace insiders,” that the newlyweds “found out they were pregnant as soon as they returned from their private honeymoon to East Africa.” The couple is described as “so thrilled” that they’ve “already started spilling the beans,” informing Prince William, Kate Middleton, Prince Charles, Duchess Camilla and “even the queen.” A so-called “source” is quoted as saying, “They didn’t expect it to happen so soon, and they were all the more giddy to learn they were having two — one a boy, the other a girl.”

Every couple of months from now until the first baby is born - whether twins or not. Then about a year's rest and it will start again - until she is in her mid-late 40s and no more babies are coming.

It was the same with The Queen - from about 1955 onwards she was 'pregnant' every other month according to various magazines. They were right twice of course.

Same with Kate - with each pregnancy she has been pregnant with twins and with Charlotte and then with Louis allegedly George and then George and Charlotte let is 'slip'. Of course they were wrong.

And not every women in her late thirties who ends up with twins has them through IVF. I've known several older mothers who had twins years ago without IVF who just happened to marry late.

I have also know many women including myself that stop being fertile in their late 30s.  but since we had enough kids we didn't need to have IVF to get pregnant again. Megan is almost 37 so she will be trying anyway she can to get pregnant as soon as possible. what surprises me is that she never had any children before because many actresses do.

Meghan Markle is ‘tending the Queen’s LONELINESS’ following Prince Philip’s retirement

MEGHAN Markle appears to be tending to the Queen’s loneliness at Royal engagements following Prince Philip’s retirement from public life in the summer of 2017, a leading expert has claimed.

James Brookes told Express.co.uk the Duchess of Sussex’s trip with Her Majesty to Cheshire showed the Royal pair “get along well” and Elizabeth II looked “genuinely happy to have some company”.

He said: “The images of them both in Cheshire speak for themselves.

“The Queen looked incredibly at ease and genuinely happy to have some company on an engagement again.

“Although The Queen’s sense of duty trumps all, we have to remember that it will no doubt feel a bit lonely for her, now that Prince Philip’s retired.
“Clearly, she and Meghan get along well and it was good to see them exchanging a few laughs and chuckles.”

The Royal commentator claimed the Duchess of Sussex’s invitation to board the Royal Train is a “big step” and declared the Queen most likely took the opportunity to speak with her granddaughter-in-law.

Mr Brookes also said the Duchess of Sussex was “no doubt slightly nervous” ahead of the engagement but Her Majesty’s “words of wisdom” would have put her at ease.

He went on: “There’s no denying that Meghan being invited onboard the Royal train is a big step, especially given the speed at which it’s happened after the wedding.

Meghan Markle and Sophie Wessex shared their carriage with their respective husbands as they arrived at Royal Ascot 2018.

The Countess of Wessex and the newly-minted Duchess of Sussex were seen chatting amiably before the bug appeared to fly too close to the Sophie' ear, making her flinch.

Meghan can be seen trying to reassure the Countess with a hand on her shoulder, seemingly asking whether she is ok.

But Sophie appeared to recover quickly as she soon laughed the incident off with her nephew Prince Harry and his new wife.

Is Meghan Markle pregnant?
Just over a month after her wedding to Prince Harry, rumors are swirling about Meghan Markle being pregnant. According to Hollywood Life, Meghan and Prince Harry learned they were pregnant with not one, but two babies upon returning from their honeymoon.
A source told the outlet: 'They didn't expect it to happen so soon, and they were all the more giddy to learn they were having two — one a boy, the other a girl.'
These reports seem unlikely, however.
Most women aren't able to learn the gender of a baby until about 16 to 20 weeks into their pregnancy. By then, a woman who is with child is usually showing.
Meghan is as thin as she ever was, as can be seen in Royal Ascot photos.

Meghan's been married a bit over a month.  Give it a year and Meghan may well have got stuck into charity work and have several patronages. I doubt she will take twelve months to decide on them either.

I'm pretty sure she will. There's no designer clothes merching opportunities in charities, except for Wimbledon but that's already taken by Kate.

As for the bleaching, she has done it. I'm sure of it. It's a Hollywood thing. No one admits it but everyone does it.

Sorry for the double post but I did some digging and here it is:

as seen on both face and hands.

2009 - https://www.fame10.com/style/meghan-markles-beauty-evolution/2/
Before she went to Toronto for Suits she still had freckles on and a slightly bronzed face but the first nose job was done, if you compare the childhood nose with the 2009 one. In 2011 - second rhinoplasty, clearly visible, and the freckles are not there any more: bleaching.

On the wedding day - everyone noticed the big gap between her parting on the head: https://www.today.com/style/meghan-markle-s-dress-looked-j-lo-s-wedding-planner-t129622
This big gap is not only a sure sign that there is not much hair there and possibly weaves are being stuck to make up for the lack of hair. But that hair gap is also showing her actual skin color and it ain't ethnic.

I saw freckles on recent photos of her.
