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.

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.

Kate Middleton is friends and equals with the Queen - but Meghan is not, expert reveals

MEGHAN MARKLE and Kate Middleton, 36, have both married into the British Royal Family. Meghan attended an official trip with the Queen less than a month after her wedding to Prince Harry. What did her body language reveal compared to Kate?

Meghan Markle and the Queen, 92, looked very close on their trip to Cheshire.

The pair sat close together and giggled on Meghan’s first trip with the Queen just a month after her wedding.

Kate Middleton's first trip out with the Queen came almost a year after her wedding to Prince William.

Though the different treatment could be seen as a snub for Kate, a body language expert reveals it may have given the Duchess of Cambridge the upper hand.

Body language expert Judi James said: “Kate has always been a 'duck to water' in terms of her royal body language displays, and the fact that she had known William for years and had more access to role models for her new role emerged strongly in her non-verbal behaviour with the Queen.”

Meghan's makeup masterclass: How the Duchess of Sussex ditched her natural look in favour of 'youthful' peach blush and 'glamorous dark eyes' at last night's Buckingham Palace reception
She is famed for her natural beauty look and face full of freckles but Meghan showcased a rather alternative beauty look on Tuesday night.

The Duchess of Sussex arrived at the Young Leaders Reception at Buckingham Palace looking very polished, showcasing bouffant curls not dissimilar to Kate's.

And her makeup routine appeared to have received a revamp too with the 36-year-old opting for a highly finished look.

The newly-minted Duchess opted for a full face of makeup finished with a high-shine bronzer and a peach blusher something we are not used to seeing.

Her eye makeup was heavier than usual with Meghan opting for a liquid eyeliner as well as a smoky eye as she joined the Queen and Prince Harry at Buckingham Palace.

It is always interesting to observe people's hands & face, the difference in skin tone. Never paid too much attention in that regard to Murky, but wow! Though I think everyone noticed Murky's overbronzing and Middletonesque orange teint.

Michael Jackson's post-mortem revealed that he had a skin condition, an illness, due to which he lost pigment and became white. He had an addiction to plastic surgery, but did not (over-) use bleach.

And yeah, twins are a great likelihood for older mothers, less so for younger mothers, even if twins don't run in the family. Meggles having twins without IVF isn't farfetched, and gender can be determined in the fertilized eggs, as well as super early via blood test, before ultrasound could even hint at a gender.

I've read many times that Mary of Denmark had IVF and therefore the twins, but tbh I don't pay too much attention to the Danes and can't say how likely the rumours could be true.

Some reports on M&H consulting "fertility experts" months before the wedding and a change in diet acc to those "fertility experts", who knows...

Here's How Much Meghan Markle's Royal Wardrobe Has Cost
"It does fall now, that she is married into the royal family, to the Prince of Wales...to cover the cost of her working royal wardrobe," Nicholl told ET.
Breaking it down, her Givenchy wedding gown racked up over $440,000, while her Stella McCartney reception dress was more than $157,000.
"It may be that Meghan contributed certainly some of the costs for either of those wedding dresses, or perhaps both of those wedding dresses, I believe was also picked up by the palace."
Although pricey, Nicholl said the cost is worth it for the Palace.
"Meghan is now an ambassador for the royal family. Look at the publicity she has brought in run up to the wedding. I'd argue that's worth every penny."
The custom cream cape dress by Markle's go-to designer Clare Waight Keller of Givenchy worn on her first solo outing with the queen came in at $18,000. The gorgeous printed Oscar de la Renta maxi she radiated in to Princess Diana's niece's wedding cost almost $6000.
So who dresses the newly minted royal? Sources tell Nicholl that she does not have an official stylist, which probably means Markle is picking her own looks.
A true style star, indeed.

Sickening to think this woman’s considered royal and is praised for her very expensive taste and rude celebrity ways. Yeah, a real style icon with I’ll fitting clothes and her lack of bidding her odd chest that looks like she has headlights all the time.  :nervous:

She's been in the royal family for what, about 10 minutes?  So I fail to see how the BRF would've garnered needed publicity at that price.  I think the world has heard of  them before she arrived on the scene.  So far, there is no bang for the buck with her.  She is outlay all the way.

A carriage ride, a trip on a train and a garden party with a few showups is all she's done.  Give me a break that she's done anything of that value in one month.  I'm so tired of this woman being shoved down my throat as the Second Coming and "so worth it to modernize".  They should stop because those on the fence or who don't care for her have a saturation point.

It would be different if there was a truly likable quality about her or some scent of genuineness but it's really not coming through.  I'd be livid if I had to fund her lifestyle for even .10 for the rest of her natural life for no reason whatsoever and no voice in the matter.  Shes just not that relatable, admirable nor majestic enough to justify the support.  And that's the BRF's whole reason for existence.

Is Meghan about to cut all ties with her father? The Duchess of Sussex hasn't spoken to Thomas Markle since THAT bombshell interview where he gave up details of private conversations with Prince Harry and now courtiers are at a loss over how to handle him
As upsetting as having such intimacies aired undoubtedly is for the Duchess of Sussex, she is also facing the accusation that she has now cut her father adrift.
According to reliable sources close to 73-year-old Markle, the father of three has not spoken to either Meghan or Harry since his interview with Piers Morgan and Susanna Reid 12 days ago.
For his daughter there is understandable anxiety about whether she can call her father for fear that everything she says to him seems likely to appear somewhere or other in public.
It is a unique predicament for the royal family because, until now, in-laws have almost always been discreet — you need only to think of the sensibly silent Middleton family.
But discretion seems to be something that Thomas Markle either doesn’t understand or chooses not to understand. What an absurd, tawdry and decidedly unroyal mess the Markle affair has become.
All in all it was an incendiary mix, and if it hadn’t already exposed Meghan to the icy displeasure of the royals towards anything which damages or undermines regal prestige, it was only a matter of time.
So what is going on, and what has happened to Markle and his relationship with his daughter after he spoke so openly?
In the shabby Mexican coastal community of San Antonio del Mar, a few miles south of the U.S. border with California, Markle has been telling friends of his disappointment about Kensington Palace’s silence.
One figure who speaks to him regularly told me: ‘He is feeling upset by that. Before the wedding there was a relationship.
‘He spoke to Harry a lot in the build-up, but since the interview, nothing. He feels shunned.
‘He thought they might have had plans to come out to see him by now but he hasn’t heard if there are. He doesn’t care if they don’t come for a while — he knows how busy they must be — he just wants to know they are coming.
‘At the moment he can’t go to them; the problems with his heart were real enough.’
Since the interview he has been inundated with big money offers from around the world.
‘He is considering what he’ll do next. Will he do another interview? He just might.’
In London this week it was suggested that the royal strategy was to do nothing in the hope that the storm would die down. In fact, royal advisers have met to discuss what they can possibly do, and there is concern about his long-term health.
One idea was to provide Markle with a property and an allowance, but it was discarded early on. ‘There are other Markles out there and it might encourage them to come out of the woodwork,’ seems to be the refrain.
Instead, what seems to be inevitable is that if he continues to speak out, Meghan will be forced to distance herself from her father even further.
http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-5902447/Is-Meghan-cut-ties-father.html
It seems that Meghan had already moved on from her dad way before the wedding, so who cares if she continues to distance herself from him. I really hope that he takes the big money offer and talks.

These are my thoughts also. I also found it interesting that the story about how much she's spent was released right before the financials and the numbers were almost exactly the same. It's hard to believe that wasn't purposeful.

Charles I think keeps them on a budget. And did not spend a "million" on her outfits in a month. I think Kate and Meghan both need to give back and earn their keep. Kate may not be working until next year.She has plenty of help with the children and could spare a few hours a week to do some royal appearances for a charity. Meghan needs to get going on charity work.

I think Charles is not one to splurge on $$$$ for the daughters in law.

Fergie had cheated on her husband with photos of her "financial adviser" on vacation. The Queen summoned her and Fergie made a quick exit from Balmoral. Until  or If this happens to Meghan, I award Fergie the prize as most embarrassing. Markle has only been with the royals for a month with mainly complaints about her clothing. But I doubt Charles ponied up a million dollars for her clothes. And Seriously Doubt this.

Of course she’ll be a Wimbledon. She’ll not miss an opportunity to rub her new position in people’s faces as she sits in the royal box.  :o Waity’s still on her very  long maternity leave, so her comes this mess. This is the one time I hope that her minders don’t allow her to attend any matches because I’d rather watch the incredible athletes than having air space wasted on her.
The more crap she does, it seems the more she’s rewarded. This is some really crazy situation that’s beyond the pale.

IMO, Serena’s seems to have a pr relationship with her. There weren’t any pictures of her just talking to Serena when they were seen at the parking area at the polo match. Only Serena’s husband was seen telling Meghan to get away from the car. I found the video and the pictures quite odd and weird.
Meghan wasn’t at Serena’s match today. That would’ve made sense if they were mates because each match that Serena enters could be her last as she’s still not up to her peak performance yet because she’s not played that many matches  since she had her baby.
I think she’ll be like Waity and go to the men’s matches just because the major players are the men right now and will have bigger audiences. Who knows, Harry might have to attend with her because no one will care who she is but she’ll expect to sit in the royal box. Anything goes now because what we thought wouldn’t happen, her not getting the boot ages ago, the opposite’s happened as she seems to be able to do as she pleases without repercussions. She gets rewarded, if you will, with more engagements. She’s getting lots of social media attention to the royal family but not the kind that’ll benefit them in the long run because the interests won’t be sustained unless they dig further down in the gutter like the other social media stars do.
The two polo games were odd in that she was still relegated to the parking lot and not in the VIP area where the guests were photographed by the official photographer of the event. She has one foot in the royal family as she attends events but isn’t really part of the important stuff.

I read on another forum that Meghan and the Dyers were inside an area at the polo that was covered by a marquee and photographers weren't able to enter. It was in the VVIP section. Serena and her husband were there as well probably on the previous day.

 I really don't think Meghan would go to the polo with friends and then not be admitted to the polo grounds itself. It would be incredibly stupid optics for one thing as other attendees would report it and it would then find its way into the tabloids, causing huge embarrassment. Meghan is a member of the BRF and Harry's wife. There would be no reason to ban her. Plus she and Harry arrived together on the second day. Harry wouldn't be waved through into the grounds and his wife be left standing in the car park.

The "royal box" at Wimbledon isn't that "royal", at least not anymore. I think it once was for "royals" only, but in any case it has been opened up ages ago to anyone who'll pay for that ticket - it's a misnamed, or rather glorified, VIP box, as any venue has. Pippy has been in all these years in the "royal box" as well as in the "cheap" seats with the rest of the great unwashed (I just literally had a thought - it's quite ironic that plebs are called "the great unwashed", when in fact historically poor people had to and did maintain greater hygiene than the rich, who didn't want to bathe regularly like the common folk who were forced to wash often due to the manual labour they did, the rich doused their stank in perfume - at least during some periods in history, eg around the 18th century :think: )

IMO, Serena’s seems to have a pr relationship with her. There weren’t any pictures of her just talking to Serena when they were seen at the parking area at the polo match. Only Serena’s husband was seen telling Meghan to get away from the car. I found the video and the pictures quite odd and weird.
Meghan wasn’t at Serena’s match today. That would’ve made sense if they were mates because each match that Serena enters could be her last as she’s still not up to her peak performance yet because she’s not played that many matches  since she had her baby.
I think she’ll be like Waity and go to the men’s matches just because the major players are the men right now and will have bigger audiences. Who knows, Harry might have to attend with her because no one will care who she is but she’ll expect to sit in the royal box. Anything goes now because what we thought wouldn’t happen, her not getting the boot ages ago, the opposite’s happened as she seems to be able to do as she pleases without repercussions. She gets rewarded, if you will, with more engagements. She’s getting lots of social media attention to the royal family but not the kind that’ll benefit them in the long run because the interests won’t be sustained unless they dig further down in the gutter like the other social media stars do.
The two polo games were odd in that she was still relegated to the parking lot and not in the VIP area where the guests were photographed by the official photographer of the event. She has one foot in the royal family as she attends events but isn’t really part of the important stuff.

She has all of her in the royal family since she's an HRH since she married Harry.

'It's so beautiful!' Royal fans go wild for £30 rhinestone replica of Meghan's antique wedding tiara that dates back to 1932
And now royal fans can get their hands on a rhinestone-studded replica of Meghan Markle's stunning headpiece - for the bargain price of £30.29.
Fashion e-tailer The Royal Look For Less have painstakingly recreated Queen Mary's Diamond Bandeau for fans who want to inject some regal glamour into their wardrobe.
Announcing the release on their Instagram page, they wrote: 'It's finally here! We've been busy like a [bee] creating our high quality replica tiara and it's finally here for purchase.'
Meanwhile the replica tiara is crafted from silver-plated zinc alloy and studded with rhinestone.

People are very odd to really be interested in buying this. I think it’s what she actually wore instead of the piece loaned from the queen. It looks too big and out of scale to me too.
It’s odd that this wedding’s back in the news again big time with articles and tv spots regarding how to get her wedding day look by using the same makeup she used and such.

^^ You snoop at home though, where you have access to everything (PC, phone, handwritten stuff), not in a car. And when you have assistants, you task them with the snooping and don't do it yourself/ you have a wider scope with an assistant (when you do it both).

I missed the snooping, could someone please repost the link that shows it?

There's never been anything in the mainstream media afaIK about Meghan stealing any blender. Nor does that appear in her bios. Morton's nor particularly sympathetic to Meghan in much of his biography of her but just states that Meghan took her blender back when she left Trevor.

All the stories of what Meghan did, said, didn't do or say during her relationships with Trevor and Cory, come from others around. Neither of these two men have given interviews to anyone about her.

^^ As for 'snooping', it was her and Harry's car. I think Meghan was searching for something she had obviously left at home. If Meghan and Harry's relationship is supposedly that bad that she is snooping on him it's odd that she and Harry went to the polo together the very next day. They are newlyweds and happy together, IMO. Never seen anything different.

Will Kate make a surprise appearance at Wimbledon? Fans plead with the Duchess to come out of maternity leave for a joint outing with Meghan (and some are even hoping for a 'Cambridge-Sussex double date')
Meghan is poised to make her Wimbledon debut as a royal this year, and fans are hoping she might be joined by her sister-in-law.
Royal watchers are pleading with Kate, who is currently on maternity leave, to attend the famous tournament before it ends on July 15.
Kensington Palace declined to comment when contacted by MailOnline.

Bryony Gordon reveals what it's really like to have lunch with the Duchess of Sussex

Ever wondered what it must be like to count the Duke and Duchess of Sussex among your friends? Well, author Bryony Gordon is one of the lucky few, and opened up about her relationship with the royal couple during Monday's episode of Loose Women. Bryony spoke to Prince Harry about mental health last year on her podcast Mad World, and was quizzed about what he is like by the panellists. "It's like chatting with a mate on the sofa with a cup of tea," Bryony revealed, adding that she had asked the royal if she could call him "Hazza", to which he reluctantly agreed.
Bryony has also had lunch with Meghan, describing the former actress as "completely normal" and recalling her surprise that they had gone to a restaurant, just like anyone else. "She is beautiful, graceful, lovely," she said, although when asked by Saira Khan if they had talked about Meghan's father Thomas Markle – who has been making headlines recently - she said they hadn't. "We spoke about yoga, she loves running," Bryony revealed. The kind-hearted royal even offered to share her food during their meal. "She offered me some of her monkfish," Bryony added.

If you’re truly a humanitarian, Meghan, then show some damn heart to your loving father before he succumbs to a broken one

We know this because she never stops telling us.

Indeed, her official Kensington Palace royal website is laced with copious details of her devotion to charitable work.

I had first hand experience of how important this work is to her when we met in my local pub just before she started dating Harry.

‘The thing I am most proud of in my life is my humanitarian work,’ Meghan told me that night.

Her eyes radiated with joy and excitement as she talked about a recent trip she had made to Rwanda for the United Nations. ‘I have never felt as happy as I did on that trip. I was doing something meaningful, to help people less fortunate than me.’

These words were very laudable and came from someone who struck me that night as a very nice, warm, genuine person.

The rules Meghan Markle has to follow but Princess Eugenie and Beatrice don't revealed
For example, now that she’s royalty, Meghan can no longer eat garlic or seafood during public meals, has to curtsy to Kate Middleton and other high-ranking Royals, isn’t permitted to wear wedges and can’t take selfies with fans.
These rigid rules, some of which are based on etiquette and others on the Queens’s likes and dislikes, don’t apply to the entire Royal family. Princess Eugenie and Princess Beatrice, both of whom are significantly further down the line of succession to the British throne, have far more freedom.
While Princess Eugenie and Princess Beatrice are free to polish their fingers and toes as they please, Meghan Markle is expected to stick with light, pleasant shades.
While married to Prince Harry, Meghan is expected to dress modestly. In fact, The Sun reported that the Queen has a strict no knees policy, meaning a woman’s knees should never be exposed.
Meghan and Prince Harry are reportedly not allowed to hold hands in public. This isn’t a written rule, but rather a preference of the Queen. She rarely holds hands with her husband in public and expects her immediate family to follow suit.
Before she married Prince Harry, Meghan shut down her blog as well as her Instagram and Twitter accounts. This rule is about discretion and maintaining a distance from the public.
While Meghan is forbidden from baring her legs without hosiery on, Princess Eugenie and Princess Beatrice are free to let their skin show when they so choose.
http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-5921927/The-rules-Meghan-Markle-follow-Princess-Eugenie-Beatrice-dont-revealed.html

^^ Nail varnish if worn must always be a neutral/ "natural" shade as well as wearing hoisery for all women when representing Liz or attending with Liz functions when protocol is in place. The Yorkies and other born Winds don't have that much more freedom than married-ins. Waity has shown plenty of knee (and worse!) on official engagements when representing Liz, worn wedges too, etc etc.

Having to curtesy to Waity (or Meghan!) ever sure is a bummer.

Kate doesn't have to be curtseyed to if William isn't with her, and really I don't think the royals bow and curtsey to each other anyway, only to Queen Elizabeth, and to Prince Philip. I've never seen someone like the Duchess of Gloucester for example, curtseying to Camilla. I can't imagine Harry bowing to his brother when he first sees him, except as a joke.

The woman who makes Instagram stars rich: Entrepreneur, 30, reveals how she founded a BILLION dollar business after starting her career as a blogger (and Meghan was one of her clients)
She's already achieved incredible success - founding a billion dollar business after starting off her career as a blogger.
But entrepreneur Amber Venz Box, 30, is not content to rest on her laurels - and is already looking ahead towards the next step in her mission to help make Instagram stars rich.
The mother-of-two set up her business rewardStyle with husband Baxter back in 2011, at a time when blogging was considered just a hobby, and Instagram had only just taken off.
She explained how it began as a way to help her and a few blogger friends 'start earning a living', by persuading brands to pay them for any direct sales they drove.
Now, her company works with over 30,000 influencers and 4,500 top brands around the world, driving a billion dollars worth of sales to retailers last year.
Her clients have included Meghan Markle, who used rewardStyle to monetise her blog The Tig - which she closed down following her engagement to Prince Harry.  
Amber, who set up the company with her husband Baxter, has now launched the LIKEtoKNOW.it app - which allows fans to directly buy the outfits worn by Instagram stars.
The businesswoman, who is based in Dallas, Texas, explained how the idea for her company came about while she was trying to earn a living as a blogger, back in 2010.
'I was a girl who wanted to have a career from blogging, and my ultimate goals were to pay rent and wear cute clothes,' she told FEMAIL.
'We launched really for myself and a few of my friends to find a way for us to support ourselves, and start earning a living.'  
However, it wasn't easy to get brands on board at first, as blogging was still thought of as a hobby at this point.
'It was really slow and painstaking,' Amber said. 'Brands did not want to associate with bloggers, they wanted to be working with movie stars and magazines.
'It really was a tough up-hill battle for rewardStyle for many years. Blogging was new, we obviously needed brands to be paying in order to earn an income and support ourselves and support our families.'
But Amber eventually came up with a way to convince brands to sign up, by making it a win-win situation for them.
Her company set up a tool that allowed brands to pay bloggers a commission for any direct sales they drove, but not have to pay any money upfront.
Explaining her business model, she said: 'We created this very easy tool and said we're going to create original content for you, and if it converts into a sale, and we can prove that, you pay us a commission on the sales that we drive.
About Meghan and the Tig
But one of her first clients was actually Meghan Markle, now the Duchess of Sussex, while her lifestyle blog was still up and running.
'When Meghan launched The Tig, she was referred to us by one of her friends,' Amber explained.
'So from the very beginning of launching her site, she was a rewardStyle influencer, up until the day she became a royal essentially and turned off her social platforms.'
'If it doesn't work, you don't owe us anything. Worst case they had great content written about them. We one by one got brands to agree to the model and sign up.'
Amber added: 'We're very unique in that influencers only earn when the brand earns, and rewardStyle only earns when the influencers earn. So it's this virtuous circle where we all win together.'
Today, the company works with all the top influencers around the world, including the likes of YouTube star Zoella, model Molly Sims, and Made In Chelsea star Rosie Fortescue.
Many of her clients now make over $100,000 dollars a year, with a select few making over $1million dollars a year through rewardStyle.

Amber's company stats
300,000 clients
4,500 brands around the world
250 employees in offices in Dallas, New York, LA, London, Berlin, Shanghai and Sao Paolo
$1billion dollar of sales driven to retailers last year

Is Meghan Markle‘s seamless transition into British royalty moving to the next level?
A woman who met Meghan during her June 14 visit to Cheshire posted a video on Twitter of their sweet conversation, as well as those with surrounding attendees. And the internet immediately erupted, declaring that the new Duchess of Sussex, 36, has an English accent — or at least is starting to lose her American one.

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry haven't even been married two months yet, but the Duchess of Sussex is so comfortable with her new life, it appears as though she may have already adopted a British accent.
Twitter user Aya El Zeiny shared a video of Meghan, 36, greeting fans at her first big solo engagement with Queen Elizabeth II in Cheshire, England, last month, and the resurfaced footage has people buzzing about the change in the Los Angeles native's accent.
'We all had a great day, I think,' Meghan said in the clip, after a woman gushed that she looked 'gorgeous' on her wedding day in May. 'The sun was shining for us.'

For someone that went on and on about getting facials and stuff, her skin looks quite bad. Since she doesn't have a job,  don't get why she looks like she just roles out of bed and doesn't wash her face. It's a shame she went on this ill fated course because she blew her own image she had prior to Harry. Now she's basically nothing that a lot of the fed up public just wants gone out of the UK.

That's pretty heavy stuff from that gossip source you saw accuse Harry of doing--I would use the word defamatory. Cressida and Chelsy never had bruises or looked "battered." And Meghan doesn't either.  Unless there is concrete evidence, there is no proof or truth just what I call malicious gossip. There was clear proof of Uncle Gary doing that and he got arrested.Harry certainly would have suffered the consequences and Chelsy and/or Cressida would have come forward, neither is a shrinking violet. Trying to say that he "might" beat up women without proof is really a stretch IMO. IF he did this it would be known since Harry is not protected like his brother is. Meghan was vetted by the royals, and rumors are just that rumors. If she were 46 it would have been uncovered by the royals and others (not people on DM who can't stand her) and she could not have gotten away with taking years off her life. Harry loves her and apparently he doesn't find it mandatory to marry someone who "looks her age."

Sorry, I wasnt implying that harry actually beats his gf's...it was a comment I saw on here, I'm not sure if there was truth to it or not...just somethiing about him having been violent in the past. and of course even if it is a bruise on meg that doesnt mean it was due to harry. it could be from anyone or anything. all we can do is draw our best conclusions from the facts we have, which arent always accurate.
I'm not implying or accusing harry of being a woman beater.
On the other hand I dont believe that all is well behind closed doors with this couple...there is something going on.

As I recall the paparazzi jeered and insulted Harry (as he was leaving a nightclub) about 10 years ago he lunged at them. No blows were exchanged.

I don't know of any evidence that he hits women. Or is violent.

I'm criticizing the source of the information. WHich could have originated on that Tumblr site.

I don't think anything sinister is going on with the couple. Some DM people WANT the marriage to break up after they did not succeed in stopping the wedding. Some posters on DM look practically under a microscope to look for "signs" that something is wrong.

Let's turn the heat down on this discussion, please.  I don't like where it's going.

At the risk of repeating myself, if the photo of Smirkles isn't doctored, it's clearly a Botox or filler injection bruise.  I even sent the stupid photo to my dermatologist.  Diagnosis: "Injection bruise."  He did also say that he'd rarely seen such sun damaged skin in a woman of color/age and would advise her seeing a clinical dermatologist.  The moles really concerned him.  He does not know who the woman is so there's no prejudice at play.

So, there's that!

^^^ and ^^^ Yes, I have read he is allegedly "handy with his hands" as they say.  I personally do not think he was being accused, a gossip site is just that  -  gossip and speculation.  Nobody can accuse anyone of anything if they are not privy to the real truth, they gossip, speculate and wonder if correct or not.  IMO that does not appear to be accusation or defamation, most of the sites do gossip and speculate these days, and there are, strangely enough, many sites that actually do have people in the know informing them of various things to do with the people who are being gossiped about.   Was he violent or was he not?  None of us can say, we don´t mix with the rf.  Tumblr is quite a good site, and is a mine of much information, a lot of it true, some not, but that is the same with all the media these days.  And thank God for the social media sites I say, we would be left in the dark about many things.

A lot of information being leaked out in social media now about various members of the rf, and a lot of it does make sense to me, whether it is right or wrong, that is my take on what I have read and I form my own opinion  -  again, is that opinion right or wrong?  Some of what I read actual slots things into place about various matters within the rf that I have wondered about for the last few years, and I can see a pattern and how things have evolved.  Maybe others can´t see it, maybe don´t want to, maybe blinkered, maybe sugars who see no wrong with the rf and how they misbehave and etc.  We all have our own opinions, and they should be respected.

I think murky certainly looks "battered" in a different way. She is a total mess, dreadful hair, make up, clothes, shoes, sometimes she looks as though she has done 10 rounds with Tyson to me.  As my mother used to say, she looks as though she has been pulled through a hedge backwards and come out looking battered and out of place.

She is not up to the job. She had time to take lessons in royal etiquette, how to use her make up properly, most certainly she should know what to do with that dreadful hair, or lack thereof.  For me, she looks unhygienic, as if she needs a good shower/wash/bath and some decent clothes. The money she is wasting on clothing and etc is just that wasted money, when it could do one heck of a lot of good for people seriously poor and in need of help.  She gives me the appearance of having just hit the bottle the night before, fallen out of bed thing jeepers, did I really drink that much.  Falls out of bed, quick flick in the shower, brush through hair, throw on what she thinks is appropriate, puts on her shoes at least one size too big, scrapes that hair back and off she goes. She is the mistress of her own fate in this debacle, nobody else, and I truly hope dork haza gets the message eventually that he made a huge mistake getting tangled up with her.

Murky and council cath would not know a days work if it bopped them on the nose.  Council cath was never at Jigsaw, and it was only meant to be one day a week. The staff themselves let that out of the bag.  The lamebridges have a minimum of 40 staff, cc does not have to lift a fingers, nannies, cook, housekeeper, you name it.  Helicopters/limos to engagements, hardly taxing, the rest of us have to get trains, tubes, buses, in hot and cold weather.  Look at chucky, even has someone to put the paste on his toothbrush. Work?  None of them know the meaning of it.

Meghan will learn. Her hair is the same as many women wear today, long and parted in the middle. I myself don't like that style yet she and many of her contemporaries wear hair that way.

I don't think she looks all that bad.Her outfits could use better tailoring and alternations should be done when necessary.

I doubt very much Harry hits women. It surely would have come out like everything he did got headline stories. William was in comparison cushioned and protected from bad press, most of his bad behavior got soft peddled. This would have been  hinted at beyond gossip sites if there had been any iota of evidence. Unless there is proof, I think this is just gossip.

I don't think she's "unhygienic" in the least. She would not be allowed out by courtiers if there had been any reality to that.

She has hairdressers and stylists.

I don't think Harry made a  mistake. If he had settled for anybody because she ticked off all the right boxes, he would have made a big mistake.

An opinion can be formed but wife or woman beating is the last thing I'd think Harry ever even thought of doing. For one thing evidence would have come out by this time, since the paparazzi managed to catch Harry with the Nazi outfit (William in an embarrassing skin tight Lion King outfit, standing with Pelly in drag  dressed as QE II, never saw the light of day).

Fergie was and is an entirely different entity with her own problems. IMO.

Meghan never publicly said she wanted to "modernize" the monarchy.

I don't see her as clingy. I just think she can't win with some. And if she did not touch Harry at all she'd have been accused of being an ice princess and Harry needs someone more loving and tactile, etc.

I see the only one in the bunch up to the job and that's QE ii herself. Because of whoever gets born first. THe UK will have to "settle" for what's ahead.

^You may have something there about her setting up a “long con” with the “he’s so mean to me” get out with a pile of loot card.  Once a grifter, always a gfifter.

Even without evidence or truth, it’s the perfect accusation and wouldn’t shock me in the slightest.  Personally, I don’t see Harry as the physically abusive type at all.  But, with the whole #MeToo movement she’d have immediate serious support from feminists worldwide with even a whiff of accusation.

That bruise, tho, is a Botox bruise. There’s no doubt in my mind but, yep, it could be the beginning of a setup.   And she does not take care of her skin at all.  Terribly pockmarked and early wrinkling.  Stress!  Angst!  How hard I tried!  I can hear it now.

With all the divorces in the Windsor family she could exit without accusing Harry of domestic abuse. It's not like the old days. Tom making those nasty comments about his son in law is a reflection of HIM not Harry. Starting rumors like that is just disgusting. It also sounds like he hit his wives himself.

Older people can show affection too. As I said if she didn't touch him she'd be the ice maiden withholding affection. IMO.

Showing affection is lovely and lovely to see, but grabbing for your husband's hand when you're literally 4 metres away from greeting people and holding hands for all of 2 seconds, and constantly rubbing your man's back is a bit much, in private I find that beyond annoying, esp amongst adults, on the job it's even worse.

The "long con set-up" is an interesting thought, something the future might show.

One couple I find really heartwarming to see and where I can literally feel the love, where it makes me happy they're together are Sweden's Vic & Dan. Recently there was a "royal weddings" on TV due to the Ssex wedding, and Vic & Dan were one of the couples shown and their engagement interview and wedding gave me butterflies in my stomach and made me feel very happy for these total strangers. And I can still see the love, respect & affection between them, without that annoyingly tedious teenage behaviour.
Maxima & WA are another such couple, but I haven't seen too much of them tbh, so am going by a very small amount of things seen (vids, pics).

Thousands of Americans may be denied a passport over failure to pay tax debt
Hundreds of thousands of Americans may soon be denied a new or renewed passport over failure to pay tax debt.
A 2015 law requires that the Internal Revenue Service and State Department deny passports to Americans who owe more than $51,000 in unpaid taxes. Officials started to enforce the law in February.
An IRS spokeswoman told the Wall Street Journal that roughly 326,000 people in the US owe at least that amount. The IRS is currently sending the names of debtors to the State Department, with the hopes of finishing the process by this year's end.
The State Department confirmed that some passports have already been denied under the law.
The IRS spokeswoman told the outlet that 220 people have paid more than $11.5million in overdue taxes as of late June so they could either apply for a passport or renew it.
She said one person paid $1million to pay off their debt in full to avoid a possible passport denial.
Some 1,400 others have set up payment plans to pay off what they owe.
There are a few exceptions to the law. According to the Journal, a person's passport won't be denied if they are the victim of identity theft, are claiming 'innocent-spouse' relief or live in a federally declared disaster zone.
Agency officials noted that they will not be revoking passports, simply denying applications for new or renewed ones.

There is only one place where her legal name needs to appear for the marriage to be legal - and that is on the actual marriage certificate itself - the document they sign after the ceremony. I haven't see a copy of that document anywhere. As long as that document has the correct name all is fine. It should also be noted that she may have changed her name legally to Meghan from Rachael Meghan and we haven't been told in which case there is again on problem.

Meghan Markle's headmistress reveals letter to 'very shy' classmate

A 'loving note' written by Meghan Markle to her 'very shy' high school classmate has been unearthed for the first time.

In the handwritten letter, from Meghan's time at Immaculate Heart High School in California, she tells her friend Michelle that she is 'so strong and wonderful' and has a 'beautiful spirit'.

The note, which was undated and scrawled in immaculate handwriting, shows 'the depth of her heart' according to her old teachers.

It is believed the letter was intended to bolster the confidence of her classmate, who was described by teachers as 'a bit of a loner'.

A number of people on the DM have pointed out that in many Roman Catholic schools (and I suspect other religious schools) writing letters to other students is part of the curriculum and so this is nothing special but just a class activity that Meghan had to do. Now maybe she was writing it out of the goodness of her heart but I suspect that it is more likely that she was given this other girl's name as the one to whom she had to write such a letter that year.

Post by: HRH Tiana of NOLA on July 09, 2018, 06:44:24 am
^I went to Catholic schools in the states and you are correct. These assignments are common in language (elementary/middle school) and English (high school) classes. The letters usually have nothing to do with the people receiving them. The teacher gives a backstory and the letter is written with that backstory in mind. It's a writing exercise to examine sentence structure, form, etc. We got these types of assignments as early as 3rd and 4th grade. There is nothing personal about them.

Post by: Ariel on July 09, 2018, 07:29:49 am
^ So, does that mean that the shy girl Meghan helped uplift may not even exist?
The letter did read schematic as if a bunch of words were thrown together without really conveying a feeling or genuine care.

Still, the choice of words shows a self-absorbed young person who thinks that the world revolves around them.

^^What MeeMeme said is true for my experience as well. We were partnered with an actual classmate but the backstory and circumstances surrounding what was written in the letter came from the teacher. The only "real" thing about it was the name of the person the letter was addressed to.

I'm sure Michelle exists but I find it really odd that a school headmaster would still have this "letter" after some 20-odd years. It would be one thing if this came from Michelle and this was an actual letter she had tucked away in an 8th grade or senior year scrapbook (I had both since they were graduation/transition years) but something about this whole story is fishy.

That's interesting and makes sense, many of the things Great Meg did were class assignments. Besides, it makes no sense that the teacher has the letter, if Murky wrote it to "lift up" or whatever bs her classmate. Then the classmate would have the letter.

The PR spins are truly desperate, what took them to contact the teacher to see if she had scraps to show how Caring Meg was such a great one with a big heart :ick: They're not ashamed to use any bs to portray Murky in a positive light.

There's never been anything in the mainstream media afaIK about Meghan stealing any blender. Nor does that appear in her bios. Morton's nor particularly sympathetic to Meghan in much of his biography of her but just states that Meghan took her blender back when she left Trevor.

All the stories of what Meghan did, said, didn't do or say during her relationships with Trevor and Cory, come from others around. Neither of these two men have given interviews to anyone about her.

^^ As for 'snooping', it was her and Harry's car. I think Meghan was searching for something she had obviously left at home. If Meghan and Harry's relationship is supposedly that bad that she is snooping on him it's odd that she and Harry went to the polo together the very next day. They are newlyweds and happy together, IMO. Never seen anything different.

It was not Meghan's car.  It was William's and Harry's car.  She did not come with Harry.   They did not go to polo together the next day.  Harry did not interact with her at all.   She ran to the car when she saw it was unattended and the trunk lid was up.  And she scuttled away fast when Mark Dyer confronted her.   That was guilt action right there.

Besides, I doubt that they are actually married. We did not see if a marriage certificate was signed, the archbishop used their pet names, not the real names and on religious grounds it can be voided, we don't know if the civil partnership with Cory was dissolved prior to Meghan starting to "move to UK", Meghan didn't live in UK for over a year, didn't have UK as her permanent residence for over 6 months - I also think that one of her dogs was moved to UK only because she had to claim permanent residence, otherwise it would have been tossed to another house too. If Harry was forced into it - it is voidable too. If the first annulment wasn't properly done and she's technically still married to the first husband ... annulment with Harry.

They are indeed married. It's no conspiracy theory.

She opted to use her middle name which is perfectly legal. They did not use pet names like Sweetie and Honey but real names.

There was no civil partnership with Cory.

It is legal and there was only one previous husband.

The service used in the Sussexes wedding ceremony was one which is now in use for most Anglican weddings in the UK and was brought into in the year 2000. In this service more informal names are allowed to be used.

https://www.churchofengland.org/prayer-and-worship/worship-texts-and-resources/common-worship/marriage#mm095

We haven't ever seen the signed marriage register for Charles and Diana or William and Kate either (never been printed in the media) yet we know they were married.

Meghan and Cory were in a defacto civil relationship in Canada that did not require legally dissolving.

 Meghan did not have to live in the UK for over a year if (as no doubt she was) she was on a fiancé visa from November 2017. It only requires six months residency in the UK not twelve. November to mid May is more than six months.

No-one has ever found any legal documentation anywhere that Meghan has had a marriage dissolved.

Neither Charles nor William invited a whole bunch of people they have never met nor disinvited everyone from their family.

It was not Meghan's car.  It was William's and Harry's car.  She did not come with Harry.   They did not go to polo together the next day.  Harry did not interact with her at all.   She ran to the car when she saw it was unattended and the trunk lid was up.  And she scuttled away fast when Mark Dyer confronted her.   That was guilt action right there.   

Harry looks more and more stressed every time he appears in public with this woman.  Interesting, no?    :cookie:

Very very interesting!

Did he really, did he.  8) We can never know for sure. Too many lies on the engagement interview, too many odd things on the wedding. Meghan brought anyone who would say yes from Hollywood and Harry brought only the close family and a handful of friends. Too many things don't add up

Honestly these windsor men are treated with kid gloves. They never make their own decisions and are allegedly "forced." Harry has ditched women before so he could have ditched Meghan too but he didn't.

The blogs have being saying for quite a while that her nastiness will be exposed, so I hope that this is true and that’s why she’s getting this maxim exposure despite all of the faux pas and the sneaky things she’s done such as that priceless video of her snooping through stuff that she had no business doing.  :cookie:

Blind Item #15
Using a person familiar to both people, a dossier of proof of the exploits of this former actress ALL of you know was delivered. Apparently there is a ransom attached that is upwards of eight figures. I have no doubts they will follow through on their threat to put it all on a pay per view website if their demands are not met. It is incredibly damning. It also is probably why things have been kind of frosty the past few days with the married couple.

Nothing from day one about this union makes any sense, but the day before the wedding, the royal family dropped two big things that makes me believe, although I’ve faltered at times because this whole thing’s sickening; Profumo and Wallis Simpson. Since rumors about her essentially escorting prior to Harry, her clients might’ve been politicians from the U.K. and abroad and Harry and/or other royals. Nasty business and uncomfortable bedfellows just like in the Profumo scandal. Wallis was seen as “that woman” who the king gave up the throne for and thrust the royal family into a constitution crisis that could’ve ruined them. IMO, this is about shutting down Meghan as she’s proven to be a narcissistic delusional woman with ideas of grandeur. IMO, she’s being used to garner social media hits and to show that they’re not racist as she claimed, but at the same time, the royal family’s bidding their time until she can be fully exposed and gone. I hope this makes sense. I think the wedding was just a fancy blessing and not legally binding in the U.K. She’ll expect the royal family to come to her aid like they’ve done before but they let her swing in the breeze as she’s not family. Of course this is just my opinion and would fit why the royal family played the long game and went along with this.

Right now Meghan has to work and pitch in and not be lazy. She is married to Harry now and needs to get going with her work as a Duchess. She is nothing like Wallis who never got the  HRH like Meghan did. I don't see Meghan any more narcissistic than some other royals I won't mention here. What would be the point of tossing her out after the wedding? The royals would not have let her in at all if any of the sinister rumors are true. Why go through a marriage ceremony and all the trouble only with some "scheme" to get rid of her. The royals would look stupider than I thought them if they pulled that stunt. ANd would make themselves look bad. She is family now and she is not in trouble unless her loud mouthed half sister is considered a "Crisis."

8 figures ransom ... that's upward of a hundred mil. Sweet. BRF better get ready with the divorce papers before the s#@t hits the fan. Could the person who is known to both of them is Marcus. He seems like the type of guy who would do something like that. 

Let's not forget - Meghan is in the family, but is not family. She has the hrh title and the duchess role but has not fulfilled those yet. It's good that they keep her busy but.. BUT. What was she looking for in the back of Harry's car? Why did she show up on official engagement with botox bruise instead of getting the botox a few dais prima? Why even when she copies Angelina Jolie to the T she still misses the mark? I mean, come on.

Meghan is family. I don't believe the ransom story.  I hope the people who stir up this trouble get investigated.

I don't think there was anything sinister going on with the car. Maybe she forgot to get her comb or something.

Who would want to imitate Angelina? The way she is now? Oh please.

If there were any hint of ransom or whatever, Meghan would have been dropped ages ago.

Yes, they go to the London beach every day and that's why she forgot her comb in the trunk. If I was into my Agatha Cristie /detective mode, I'd say that she heard on the listening device she planted that the car will be swiped at the polo gor bugs and rushed to get to the contents of her "forgotten" purse quickly but the swiper- Mark Dyer caught her red handed. The contents being:

She did copy Angie. Angie had one faux pas in my view and that is - she wore gloves in June. MM did the same wven though it's 100 degrees in London. Why? Bad attempt at copying

All I know is that Meghan’s just Harry’s plus one at events such as the christening and the service today. Both days she’s the one out of synch regarding the attire. Today, she’s the only one in a dark colour whilst the others are in bright colours. She’s not family. That odd wedding was attended by Hollywood people as opposed to people close to the couple. The royal family plays the long game and knows what she is. The blackmail story might be fake but not the rest of her nasty deeds that the press has been hinting at for a while.
Harry would have to be mentally deranged to have actually picked her as wife material with all of the rumors and the press basically calling her a Soho House girl and expect the public to love her and for him to be taken seriously. I’d love to have an explanation as to why the rest of the royal family’s acting out of character and why the queen would bend all rules for this strumpet if there wasn’t an end game. Her presence is making them look cheap and common and Harry a weak hypocrite as he tries to raise money and awareness to causes but his tacky wife swans around in expensive attire and acts crass at events as she wants attention solely on her. Unfortunately, the outfit she has on today shows her odd breast issue again.  :nervous:
^iI don’t get Americans trying to be royal. Angie did it better but shouldn’t do it at all.

Last I checked it is a crime.  If there were a "dark past" it would have been uncovered by royal detectives. And if she had a "dark past" she would never have gotten TV jobs. In today's day and age, actors are fired left and right if anything in their past comes up (e.g. Cosby, Spacey, among others got dismissed when people came forward and Roseanne got fired by her racist tweet). Certainly Meghan would have had "dirt" uncovered by detectives by now not by a bunch of amateur "blackmailers."

Harry is no prize himself. Why is a woman the one demonized? Just asking.

There's no such thing as demonizing the woman only. Especially today. Cardy B was a stripper, yet she's open about her experience, what got her into stripping and what got her out of it. I admire her. She has truly turned her life around. Stormy Daniels is an adult industry actress, yet I have a lot of respect for her - someone came onto her, while she was married, threatened her and as extension her baby and instead of crawling into an angle she stood up for herself, risked loosing her husband, which happened, only to protect her baby and to give her a good example. So, I personally do not judge people's past. As they say- there is no saint without a past. However, in MM's case - she's fake, calculating, quick to rally up the lawyers and the PR firm for her advantage, yet extreeeemely slow to act like a decent human being - see her dad, introduce her bf/fiance/husband to her dad. I don't think she's demonized - people just point out the obvious about her. If she doesn't like it, oh well - truth hurts.
 

I have to ask why is this story taken as gospel truth. And don't blackmailers get arrested?...... Certainly Meghan would have had "dirt" uncovered by detectives by now not by a bunch of amateur "blackmailers."

The common rhetoric is that Meghan waived the race card, (she now plants evidence for the domestic abuse card), then she had "stories to tell" - her own little: "you owe me because you slept with me" parade. She most certainly have a very dark past. If everyone talks about it all of the time, then most certainly it's a matter of time for someone to expose it for cash or sell it to the brf for cash. She most certainly got in with a push. Whatever she has on PH and his family - I wish we could know, but we don't. But, now that she's in the family (which is a galaxy away from being family) any evidence of her extracurricular activities has a huge backlash on the brf. My guess is - people like to keep tapes of their performances.

As for the blinds, Lainey's gossip, crazydaysandnights - since day one we've been informed about the relationship and it's progress via such leaks. A lot, a lot have turned out to be true so ... it's easy to believe. I do not think that the blackmailers are amateurs. Whoever they are - and with MM I'd imagine that it is a huge list, most likely they named their price, MM thought that once she's in brf will whitewash everything from her past but, but ... if they do start paying up, they'll be the stupidest people in the world.

So, whatever it is - please let it come out soon.

This story is deemed credible because it fits the body language of those involved over the last year and a half.   I know that I have several posts in this forum talking about how Harry looks as though he doesn't even like Megs, so no way are they dating/engaged.   Then, lo, and behold!   They get engaged and married.  He still looks as though he doesn't like her -- and especially now after the wedding, it is obvious he wishes he were anywhere but with her.  Therefore, when I found my way (thanks to Windsor2 ?  Ariel ?) to the site that talked about the coercion behind Megs' relationship with Harry, it all made sense.  Then you had only to look at the Queen's face during the "wedding" to know something was very, very wrong.

Well, for me, so far, the BRF have been steadily playing defense since she showed up.  From Harry's clumsy edict to an entire body of people he doesn't even know about any public racism to the whole family's obvious push to appear non-racist, to her citizenship status which is still murky, to her expensive engagement ball gown, her "family"'s antics, the showbiz wedding with one family member, saying the BRF is the 'family she never had' which was a ballsup effort to beat down any of her family's behavior (or hurt their feelings), up to today where they have to scramble to do more damage control because of her "outspoken" ways on a diplomatic visit.  It just goes on and on and I'd put money down that the staff and HM have had a belly full.

I hope we get a break from seeing either of these idiots until they get things in line.  It's not only a colossal waste of money but it's embarrassing.

Sandy, Roseanne had  her show taken off the air because of her tweet. But Smallville is still on the air even though one of the actresses was arrested in connection with child trafficking  for sexual purposes.  Go figure.

So everything might not be as it seems.

Nor might this relationship. And sorry, no. I've no idea what's going on between them. Sometimes they do look happy together, and other times they really don't look like a couple.

And I'm not attacking you. It's  just seems strange somehow. Something doesn't fit quite right by me and I don't know what that is, sorry.  :flower:

I said Roseanne went off the air because of the tweets. Generally if a sordid past is found about someone from a TV show they all but disappear. And I think most of them.

If all had not been as they seemed, she would have been history ages ago. Harry did not have to propose to her. He chose to.

Of course, nobody but the couple knows what goes on between them. IT's behind closed doors.

It is a non traditional wedding. Not the aristo woman from the UK or one with a large trust fund from the UK. That's what makes it different and some just don't like the idea. I think that this won't be "odd" for future generations of royals. George may up and marry a divorcee some 25 years from now.

Miss Hathaway, I know of people in real life who made a similar comment that Meghan made about her mother. And I know they are not racist.

Well there is something weird about the whole thing but that could be explained buy Harry's own mental problems with past relationships.  I think the royal family just wanted him to settle down with anyone that could fit in.
 that was the case with Prince Edward because Sophie comes from very middle-class stock but all people thought he was gay before her.  the other thing on a more conspiratorial level is that by these boys marrying worse and worse women, the royal family will go down by the time William takes the throne. This may being orchestrated by higher powers that we don't know. If not it just means the universe is changing things which is they are going to change that royal family down into commoners and then the English will get rid of them.  any of these could be true.  she is a weirdo in that family but then that family is a bunch of weirdos

The royal family now comprises of strumpets, lazy manipulative women and weak dumb men. It beggars belief that they went from being respected and adored mainly due to Diana’s early years in the family to what they’ve become now. Harry has problems, yes, but not to the extent that he’d actually pick Meghan to be his wife. I’m under the impression that something fowl’s is going on in the background and she’s there for a purpose and will get the boot when they’re finished with her. But as this farce continues on, it’s getting harder to believe that she’ll get the boot. She’s like a very bad case of STD that keeps popping up and contaminating thing.  :ick:

First, the parent has way too much beard on his face. Second, it's the mothers who take care of such things as pulling and grabbing. Fathers are clueless, usually. That said - this child was clearly taken there so that Megsy interacts with it in a motherly way. However - she was utterly rude. I think that the only reason she didn't slap the kid was because of the cameras. Looking at how she interacted with that kid I'd say that she's not only not ready to become a mom but also it is recommended that she does not get close to kids, let alone be a mom to a kid. She doesn't have the mom gene but unlike Jennifer Aniston, she's bad at actresssing too.

^^^^Wow. It was a matter of time the blinds about her fertility come out. The problem with the infertility is that if they tell you that you'll never get pregnant then it is not your carrying the baby, it's the eggs that are the problem. Looking at her rapidly aging skin and face, I'd say that who's the mother will be a bigger problem than who's the surrogate. Besides, if Harry likes her so much - he should accept her as she is: infertile and mean.

This story is perceived as truthful by some on this forum for the same reason you (based on every single post I've read from you this year) seem to think that everything not pro Meghan has zero validity. Any more questions?

IMO murky has just that, a very murky, unpleasant and very unsavoury past indeed, and seems to be a very evil, mean, greedy and grasping woman, and will trample over anyone and everyone to get her way, and not care how it is done or who falls to the wayside because of her.  I am a little unsure about the alleged blackmail situation, especially if it is about murky and not dork haza, why would the rf pay an 8 figure sum to hide a past which is mostly already published in international papers.  Also, it is said that dork haza also has a very unsavoury past, and again why should the rf pay a blackmailer because most people know that dork haza is most certainly has a very unsavoury past, and again the press and many people are well aware of it, and he has also blown his cover marrying that evil female.  He is an even bigger dork than I thought he was that he could not see through the critter.  I think we can all very much rest assured that not just the royal detectives know what murky´s disgusting past history was, and also what she is getting up to now, but also the highest intelligence agency in the UK will have it all gathered and in a top secret file somewhere, we can rest assured on that point  -  that is what the rf commission for all non blood members of the rf, and possibly for all we know some true blood royals.  IMO there is in existence a huge dossier on everything about murkey, including literally everything about her since birth.  HM might be old, and a bit senile, but she sure would have ordered that from day one. Same thing applies to the medds, must have several filing cabinets on that lot and what they get up to.  The rf miss nothing, and I reckon they.  I always get MI5 and 6 mixed up, but I also told that there is an even higher very top secret intelligence agency working behind the scenes, for the rf and the UK.  I really think murky is not aware of just what goes on behind the scenes and how much these agencies know about her  IMO if the rf really believe they are being blackmailed then action will be taken, in whatever way is necessary, and we may never get to know what that is/was.  The old girl might be 92, and stand weak on many matters re her family, but one thing she is not is stupid, and does not like parting with her money.

Must confess I have often wondered this last year whether or not murky is a member on this forum, defending herself at every tiff and turn and trying to make herself look good, knowing that many people, including the press, read this forum on a daily basis to see what we know.  If indeed that is the case then she will trip herself up one day, always happens in the end, inevitably.

 There are definitely plants in this forum  and they are so obvious. Monkey has a past she as she got places in Hollywood and her father was not that important as a lighting person. A how raunchy her past is is up in the air.
I can't imagine it's that bad. She's not a criminal. She may have been a very high-priced call girl or just a very high priced s***. Grace Kelly slept around quite a bit before she got married and she did it because she was having fun not because she was a call girl. Hollywood people are sleazy in a lot of ways and that is why in the olden days nobody wanted to associate with them in the better Circles of society.
 Now it's different and Royalty hob nobs with them. but there's no question she has a past.. just how important that past is I don't know. And I bet money Harry likes that in her. I still think those two are kinkier than heck in person.

Found this on another blog, can´t remember which one, think it might be Alternaticity, or something like that.  Make of this what you will, I can believe it all, but that is just me and my thought.

The blackmailer has to find a paper or site willing to post. After the money the cambridges got for the naked pictures or the pippa sex pictures they put the IT guy in jail. I think they have limited platforms to offer. But what i know the black suited men will offer to buy and bust the gang.
For a Hollywood girl a sex tape means success she has reached her goal . Being a duchess is more than many can do. Even if she divorces now she will tour the world teaching royal manners, selling dresses and writing books and acting like that diana and duchess of york did. For a woman the stocks go up and with a hustlers LA attitude she will be on oprah selling interviews and in india working on UN charity. Imagine tramp is president and met a person famous for a sex tape in the oval office.

So the person likely to burn in this in the royal family. They bought the damaged goods and have to deal with it. The masons are well connected and control media and wont let it happen.

She is making the knight order handshakes and was baptized so she is their property now.

Margaret was blackmailed often because she sun bathed naked and had sex in the sea with her toy boys to damage the queen. British press was not allowed to publish the pictures . But the foreign press did but again these days they can be sued . Thats why Europe introduced data protection laws this month and sex tapes blackmailing brings in most damages.

Of course if its insider mason or illuminati blackmail it’s something else.

Harry was secretly promoted in the knight orders like prince andrew which protects one from persecution if they are high ranking Knights. (strange, it was made public when PA got that order awarded by HM when the Epstein case was citing him, but dork haza has had it awarded out of the private eye.  Hmmmmmmm.

Thats why all those who do secret missions on order from her majesty cannot be prosecuted after being knighted.

They use the knighthood as shield from attach.

The james bond of the internet and media are out rooting any attackers of her Maj. But that does not mean people don’t keep trying!

Something about going to ireland their first foreign visit triggered the tumblr accounts close downs because Ireland is not uk and damaging info could have been published there.

I don't think the royals would buy from sleazy blackmailers peddling this sort of thing. They would be arrested and put on trial. I thought blackmail was illegal.

The Lady Senator story is hearsay.

I think Meghan should be given a chance and no I don't think she had a "sordid" past--the royal detectives would have surely uncovered it IMO.

4in heels, Meghan? You'll turn into a limping bimbo: LIZ JONES on how the Duchess of Sussex's shoes will do her more damage than good
Meghan Markle proudly proclaims herself to be a feminist. And I am here to tell you she is nothing of the sort. Oh dear, why, I can hear you thinking. What has she done? Faked it in bed with Harry?
Started buying birthday cards for his relatives and forging his signature? Agreeing that if women tennis players want to earn the same as men, they should play five sets? (As any true feminist knows, length isn’t everything.)
Not one of the above, as far as I know. But she is doing something far, far worse. She just will not stop wearing 4in-plus stilettos.
There she was, as tall and teetery as a heron, in 4in Aquazzura nude heels for the announcement of her engagement. Aquazzura, again, in Cheshire to accompany the Queen, whom she rendered as short and dumpy as Victoria.
A pair of Paul Andrew Pump-It Up heels in Ireland, just last week. Along with the ironed hair and asymmetric hem, the impossibly high heel, with its pinchy partner in crime, the pointy toe, has become Meghan’s trademark.
And it makes her as cliched and colonised as the most mahogany-hued bimbo on Love Island.
I’m not here to rail about the financial cost: each pair hovers around the £500 mark, about half what the Queen spends on her sensible Anello & Davide hand-made low pumps.
But I am worried about the emotional and physical cost. Meghan’s heels should carry a health warning on the side of the box along the lines of ‘That first dance at the wedding? It was your last’, accompanied by a photo of a very livid bunion. Because high heels ruin lives. And I should know.
I first started wearing 4in heels when I became a glossy magazine editor. My appointment, in 1998, coincided with the first episode of Sex And The City: a tsunami of
I would publish stories about the last women in China with bound feet, and the horrors of FGM, while forced to crawl around my office holding on to various pieces of furniture while texting my PA for help.
I ran up a huge limo bill in Paris, unable to negotiate cobbles and baulking at horrors such as kerbs like a donkey faced with Becher’s Brook.
I used to wonder at first why all the women at fashion shows were so desperate to be seated in the front row. Then I found out the reason: it’s nearer.
Ever wonder why you never see Anna Wintour without dark shades? It’s because her eyes are watering.
Someone asked me the other day why on earth I got married: truth is, he was an on-tap elbow. Why did I get divorced? I was always tired and miserable, desperate to leave the party early, simply and only because of my shoes.
High shoes made me cry, too. Not just at the £800 price tag on a nude pair of spangled Louboutins, but at the pain in the balls of my feet.
If you are stupid enough to want to go out in the world with a pencil at the end of your legs, your BMI is also so low there is no fat in your feet. You are literally walking around on a centimetre circle of bone.
And then, four years ago, I stopped writing about fashion, and simultaneously stopped wearing heels.
It was a revelation! I could take the Tube, rather than fearing the long walks along tunnels (in heels, you’re a mugger’s dream), and the dangers lurking on the escalator. I noticed trees and the sky: in heels, your eyes are always cast down in case of danger near your feet.
The Cuban heel of a biker boot became my Mrs Pankhurst, liberating me from shackles. In proper walking boots, I no longer shake my fist at the proliferation of parking spaces near shop doors with drawings of small children.
I no longer stand, at the brink of a flight of steps, as though faced with a ten-metre dive. My ankles no longer buckle, Dick Emery-fashion, as I leave a room after a long day.
Meghan’s megawatt smile will vanish soon, you mark my words, faced with one too many blisteringly (literally) hot meet-and-greets.
Wonder why she is spending so much time talking to that young man in a wheelchair? She’s asking if she can borrow it. She will soon cut back on the number of Royal limpabouts, citing being pregnant with twins, or terrorism.
But the real reason will be a looming lawn, or a small child bearing a posy (have you ever tried to recover from a kneel in stilettos? Even Cirque du Soleil won’t attempt it).
Of course I understand why she wears stilettos: they make her taller; she feels feminine, if not a feminist.
She has such thin calves (blades so sharp she could shave Harry’s beard with them) that she knows a clumpy pump would make her lower half resemble a golf club. Dangerous, with Donald Trump about…
http://www.dailymail.co.uk/debate/article-5954791/4in-heels-Meghan-Youll-turn-limping-bimbo-LIZ-JONES-Duchess-Sussexs-shoes.html
Interesting that she says Meghan’s smile will be wiped off her face soon.
Wow, the press is turning. She looks like an escort with her client; always in high heels like the clients prefer.  :cookie:

Her mouthpiece all but admitted that she doesn’t live at KP.
 theroyalweekly
Meghan and Kate have just left @Wimbledon (in separate cars). I’m told that Meghan was able to spend a little time with @serenawilliams (who told reporters she’ll be spending this evening watching a movie at home with husband @alexisohanian).

(Daddy on Trump as het mouthpiece, the lady in IE who heard it from Meghan herself so it's not really a hearsay, Meghan herself calling Harry a 'feminist') Nope.

I do think murky has a very shady past indeed.  How do we know the Lady Senator story is hearsay  - how does anyone know it is only hearsay.  Why should murky be given a chance  - she has lied and faked her way through to where she is.  The lies are everywhere, and that cannot be denied.  Why should us British taxpayers be be funding her, she has never appeared to many of us as a nice person.  She has not shown a good side to herself at all, most British have seen seen the trailer trash blagging her way to the top, and there could be blackmail, we don´t know there isn´t, it is impossible for us to know whether that is correct or not.  I would put money on her sordid past being well known to the rf, the fact that it is not public knowledge means nothing, it will be kept hidden until and if it is needed, that is how the British  rf operate. The British police will be aware of it, as will the higher intelligence agencies, that is their job, that is what they do.  However, they are all sworn to secrecy and have had to sign contracts, they lose everything they have worked for if the get loose lips and it is traced back to them The rf bought off people in the US on the Epstein case on randy andy having underage sex, or called favours in, similar only monetary difference.  Then randy andy was given that Knight Order so that nobody could "touch" him after that, the rf were covering his a$$. The same has secretly been done for dork haza - allegedly, but I for one believe it has been.  Yes, I do believe she has had a very sordid past, too much information has come out, that has not been refuted. the general public are not stupid, there is very little liking for murky by the British public. Ireland was a scam and loads of people on the ground boo hooing them and throwing out their thoughts about the terrible two.  As the saying goes  -  show me your friends and I will tell you what you are.  The rf will do anything and everything they can to cover up this debacle, and it also does beg the question as to how she was allowed to marry in, personally I seen no body language suggesting to me that there is a great love between them. There is a lot wrong with this situation, but the rf, unless someone blows the whistle on it and lets it all out, will hide this, that is their MO, and the public are now very well aware of the what they get up to.  Too many people know too much.  It is also very obvious that the rf do not like her one bit.

@Sandy  She climbed her way in Hollywood. She has a history like everyone else here. But I think that is par for the course for many actresses especially when they are young. I dabbled a bit in acting and production as a hobby while a prosecutor for L.A. County. Believe me, the sleaze level at the beginning is unbelievable that people put up with. I couldn't and had a real career anyway. But if I had to do it as a career, drugs, sex and were prerequisites. It may be a bit different now but I doubt it. She has a sordid past. That is for sure.

^ You are right it hasn't especially for the wanna be famous starlet. What Murkles has is an outgoing personality and she knows how to manipulate and social climb her way in. But she pays the dues where she goes to get in. And I bet there were some pretty high prices she had to cough up in Hollywood. Then she got a show in Canada and wormed her way into royal circles.  She just hit the jackpot with Harry. She really did.  I must admit she can charm her way with people as is evident at the events. The greeters at W were talking to her not Waity who is probably pretty boring to talk to especially these days. She looks awful by the way. For the first time, I thought Murky was prettier and I do not find her attractive at all these days with her ridiculous buns. Anyway, that Murkles is something else and has the hutzpu to grab it all and get away with it so far........... She'll get her upcomings at some point. Most everyone does.

He thinks he's entitled to it, if this is the case. And I think he's greedy to begin with. He at first came across as an eccentric person but he seems to have a mean streak. He did achieve getting a steady job on a TV show behind the scenes which is a plus. But he appears to have gone down hill in many ways.

Sorry I don't think Camilla superior to anybody. Her father was OK and surely superior to Tom (Shand did distinguished service in the military which is more than I can say for Tom) but Camilla lowered the bar on royal consorts. But that's for another thread.

It's Time To Stop The Classist, Sexist Attacks on Meghan Markle
Two opposing and competing narratives in the British media coverage of Meghan Markle, the Duchess of Sussex, are starting to emerge.
The surface narrative is, most would argue, appropriately positive: Gutsy, strong, independent woman with awesome personal style accepts potentially poison chalice of marrying into the British royal family, and does a stellar job of it.
Less than two months after her wedding, Meghan has shown a remarkable work ethic, racking up a huge number of public engagements at which she appears genuinely happy.
More than this, the marriage has been a PR triumph for the hopelessly uncool Windsors as, at least partly by virtue of being an atypical royal bride – biracial, divorced, American, outspoken, successful in her own right, sure of her own mind, unwilling to be pushed around – she has helped broker the royal family, and her charming but slightly klutzy hubby, to a whole new market.
But there’s also a disturbing subtext around some coverage of Meghan, which seeks to cast her as an conniving interloper, unsuitably ambitious, an imposter, a working class usurper who doesn’t (yet) know her place. She is not, as newspaper editors sometimes wryly put it, PLU – People Like Us.
Her pretensions to subvert the sacred British class system is an impertinence that will be punished.
Of course, the papers can’t openly say this (out and out snobbism is only slightly less unacceptable than out and out racism), so instead some have developed a poisonous but effective strategy of latching on to very minor alleged breaches of protocol and using these to attempt to shame and embarrass Meghan, as well as bolster a negatively-charged perception of her as an outsider.  :bored:
A recent example of this was an article by the Daily Mail which found fault with Meghan for the way she sits on a chair.
The Mail headlined its report on what they called the ‘Sussex Sit’ with an all-caps allegation that Meghan had committed ‘ANOTHER royal faux pas’ after she was photographed crossing her legs while seated next to the queen at a church service.
The basis for their accusations that Meghan had outraged society seemed to be a few Facebook comments from random social media users who had no connection to Meghan or the royals, and no credibility.  
The Mail’s reporter was even forced to quote their own ‘etiquette expert’ disagreeing with the premise of the article, saying, as most sane people would concur, that there was absolutely nothing wrong with Meghan crossing her legs and that even the queen, on occasion, did it.
Yet, despite this, great credence was give to Facebookers claiming it was an ‘etiquette faux pas’ which was "disrepectful" to Her Majesty.
The British were still utterly obsessed with class in 1956, and, although times have changed, the class shaming of Meghan shows they maybe haven’t changed as much as one might hope.
For the right-wing media, criticizing the way Meghan sits, holds hands or crosses her legs is a useful proxy for criticizing who she is – or rather, isn’t.  :bored:
There is of course a broader point here, which is that if the British royal family is to be remotely engaged and relevant in the modern world, they clearly do need to be able to hold and, shock horror, espouse their views from time to time, particularly if, as Lacey points out, they are not "rabid."
So what did she really do wrong in Ireland?
Nothing. And why did the Mail seek to hammer her for it?
Because they are nervous about the constitutional settlement?
Or because she is black?
Because she is a human with opinions?
Or was it just because she is not PLU, darling?
https://www.thedailybeast.com/its-time-to-stop-the-classist-sexist-attacks-on-meghan-markle
Such a dumb piece of reporting. She’s rightfully criticized just like Waity and Cressida were before her and funny enough, both women are white. It’s dumb to just jump to classism and racism and not actually look at why the media’s being critical.  :bored: :bored:

I don't think anyone should be labeled something because of their opinion. Attack the argument, not the person.

Tom needs to stop going to the media. It doesn't make him look good. Yes, Meghan should talk to her father, but him going to the media, knowing how much the BRF don't like that (esp. William and Harry) isn't doing him any favors.

But, does he really need to stop. He, Meghan, Samantha - they all grew up dreaming of the big lights focused on them. Now they have a chance to do that. Meghan can fulfill her lifelong dream to parade super expensive clothes thinking that this is what made Diana famous. Samantha can go to big brother and release her book on Meghan right after that. Tom can play the poor me card until he gets an offer from a tv show or something.

If the rf didn't know what they are getting into with Meghan and her white trash family, that is sadly on them but the Markes are a constant source of entertainment and they have been preparing for the smack down of the Kardashians their whole life. Creating scandals and controversy is in their LA wannabe a star blood.

The royals are not "country bumpkins" they have "people" that investigate backgrounds. I think they knew darn well what was going on--Samantha had already been running to the media.


I think Samantha's book would end up in the $1 bin at bookstores. I think Tom Sr might (the odds are not good though) only get a chance to be on Dancing with The Stars. Tonya Harding was on for ratings primarily.

Truly I think they expect that's a possibility as many people do.  But that is not going to happen for a while because she has too much to gain by staying in there plus she's going to have to pop out a couple of kids to cinch her money. But I think the royal family has survived divorce and they don't care anymore.  Charles has no right to care and I don't think William cares too much what Harry does with his personal life.  Pretty soon he will have to start worrying about George and whatever happens between Harry and Meghan won't matter one iota to his life.  look at Andrew.  No doubt that William loves his brother but he's not going to care. So the answer is yes they're ready for M to exit whenever that happens.

She can do the royal work and all that. Charles' acts too goofy when he's doing work, he needs to tone it down. The Queen does OK in the work dept.

that said. She really has not changed. She ostriches and always has and waits until things hit a real crisis point before doing anything about it. Sometimes the problem takes 20 years before she acts. It's par for the course.

From roughing it in a van to fish and chips by the beach: Snapshots from Meghan Markle's 2015 trip to New Zealand reflect a VERY different holiday to the lavish royal tour she's set to embark on
In 2015, the then-Suits actress and founder of lifestyle website The Tig took a two-week road trip through New Zealand in a camper van, visiting both the country's North and South Islands.
Here, FEMAIL takes a look at how the Royal travelled way back when, and how different it might be this time around.
In 2015, Meghan Markle's trip was quite the adventure.

Someone commented about Murky's messy hair on daily mail. 

"The messy hair is because she has weave tracks ALL over her head and you can easily comb or brush those so they blend. She hides the weave tracks by making her hair all ratted up and messy. And then adjusts the two front tendrils constantly to be sure the huge bald spots she has at the front sides are hidden (the balding spots were very visible once the wind got to her hair when she was sitting with HM on that absurd railway day trip they took). And if you comb those weaves too much it rips the hair out at the root. She is trying to slow down her inevitable and stop her already well-progressed balding from getting too much worse. She won't EVER change her messy bed head look unless it's to wear one of those fake & shiny Barbie doll hair all-over wigs like the one she recently wore at the fancy dress reception in Ireland."
 
Wonder if Haz has ever seen her without a weave/hair extension.

Going home! Meghan Markle‘s plan to return to United States for ‘personal trip and royal tour’
SHE has relocated to Britain since marrying Prince Harry but the Duchess of Sussex is reportedly eyeing two trips back to her homeland, including one of a ‘personal’ nature.


NEW royal Meghan Markle is reportedly planning two trips back to the United States — including at least one of a “personal” nature.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are said to be eyeing an official royal tour of America in early 2019 with California, New York and Washington on the agenda, sources said.

“Meghan is looking forward to introducing Harry to everything she loves about the US,” the source told Us Weekly.

“They are so excited to head to the US.”

But before then, the Duchess, who turns 37 next month, is expected to travel solo to California and New York for a “personal trip”, a palace source revealed.

“She’s planning a personal, unofficial trip this summer to see family and friends,” the source told Us Weekly.

“She’ll go to New York, then LA.”
The royal couple — who tied the knot in May — have already announced a trip to Sydney in October for Harry’s Invictus Games as part of their first overseas tour as a married couple.

The itinerary also includes stops in Fiji, Tonga and New Zealand.

While Harry and Meghan’s US tour is still being finalised, the royal couple want it “to solidify ties between the UK and the US”, a source said.

“They want to highlight and foster these relationships.”

Meghan Markle Finds Certain Royal Rules 'Difficult to Understand,' Says Source
Meghan Markle has expertly navigated her new duchess role since joining the royal family two months ago. But between outings with the Queen and royal christenings, she’s learning the ups and downs of life as the Duchess of Sussex.
Although she has quickly adapted to many of the minutiae of royal dos and don’ts, she “has found certain rules in the royal household difficult to understand, like the fact that the Queen prefers women in dresses or skirts rather than trouser suits, and is often asking Harry why things have to be done in a certain way,” a source tells PEOPLE in this week’s cover story.
“I think she finds it a little frustrating at times, but this is her new life, and she has to deal with it,” the source adds.
Stepping into an entirely new world has also brought a new set of challenges. The outspoken former actress, who includes a reference to being a “feminist” on her page on the official British monarchy website, landed in the headlines after a July 10 garden party at the British ambassador’s residence in Dublin, when Senator Catherine Noone tweeted that Meghan had said she was “pleased to see the result” of Ireland’s recent referendum to legalize abortion. (Royal family members typically steer clear of political discussions, and Noone subsequently deleted the tweet.)
“That’s an example of her naïveté,” says Crown historical consultant and royal biographer Robert Lacey. “Within the royal family they talk freely, and everyone knows the rules. She’s learning the hard way that you can’t trust anyone outside the narrow circle.”
Of course, she has her new husband by her side to help show her the royal ropes — along with the Queen’s former assistant private secretary, Samantha Cohen, who has been helping her with protocol.
“You can see Prince Harry’s hands-on approach, steering her, helping her,” photographer Mark Stewart tells PEOPLE.
https://people.com/royals/meghan-markle-finds-certain-royal-rules-difficult-understand/
Funny that, how she wore a pant suit whilst in Ireland though, so she’s obviously not following protocol.
The article about how we should feel sorry for Meghan because of her dad stunts is a warning to Meghan as to what’s going to happen to her as her lies are getting exposed. She should be ruined and booted back to the States as i’m sure the irs and immigration would like a word with her. She might even face criminal charges as she’s pulling a scam on Harry and the royal family, IMO.

Does this "source" not realize the things both of these fools have said about the current head of state and that them touring America makes no sense? The current monarch hasn't been to the US in eons and neither has the next in line.W&K have been here twice but the first time was (IIRC) a pop in for a function in L.A. while touring Canada and the second was a few days in NYC because Will had meetings at the UN & with 44.

Meghan Markle just wants to wear pants
Meghan Markle‘s wowed the fashion crowd in everything from trench dresses to off-the-shoulder pastels over the past couple of months — but pants are reportedly off the menu for the newly minted royal, and she isn’t pleased about it.
The Duchess of Sussex “has found certain rules in the royal household difficult to understand, like the fact that the Queen prefers women in dresses or skirts rather than trouser suits, and is often asking Harry why things have to be done in a certain way,” a source told People.
The source added, “I think she finds it a little frustrating at times, but this is her new life, and she has to deal with it.”
A brief review of Markle’s recent outfits reveals that while the former “Suits” star lived in pants (and even ripped jeans) pre-royal wedding, she’s managed to sneak slacks into her wardrobe rotation only one time since: for her appearance at Wimbledon last weekend.
According to People, eyebrows have also been raised regarding the high price of Markle’s designer duds — particularly since it’s Prince Charles who has to pick up the tab. The publication estimated that the four outfits Markle wore for her recent two-day tour of Ireland, which included looks from the likes of Dior and Givenchy, added up to $36,000.
“She has to rein it in slightly,” the Queen’s former spokesperson Dickie Arbiter told the magazine. “It’s a lot of money in 48 hours.”

^ Correct. But funny how conveniently DM mixed up the glam team going to NZ to do God knows what with the laid back campervan honeymoon with her second husband which was 110% funded by him because back then she was a struggling wannabe actress from the slum marrying up a producer.

^^Maybe that's why Nelson Mandela's grand daughter wasn't looking happy in the picture with Meghan.

^^ Very interesting videos. Now, Harry better work on his manners cause with that attitude the trash, narc and wannabe-famous-at-any-cost type of women like Meghan is the only thing he will get.

As for Meghan - what a load of cr#p. She's rude, intrusive, interrupts other people's conversations, the Queen is looking at whatever is in front of her and MEghan seems to start a conversation, laugh at her sentences and maybe even reply to them. What is she a looney or something? And then, there is the disturbing video of her trashing her husband's car. I mean, doesn't matter who the husband is - if you do not have the keys, you do not go on a trashing and stealing spree in his things: car, phone, bank account, etc ..

Who says you can't go home? Meghan Markle is reportedly 'planning a SOLO trip to the US to see family and friends' over the summer - after her half-sister accused her of 'ignoring their father'
The 36-year-old royal is reportedly taking a solo trip the US ahead of an official visit with Prince Harry, 33, in 2019.
'She's planning a personal, unofficial trip this summer to see family and friends,' a source told Us Weekly. 'She’ll go to New York, then LA.'
The magazine reported that Meghan wants to return to her home country before becoming a mother for the first time.
'Expect to hear the pitter-patter of a little prince or princess in 2019,' a source told the outlet.
The solo excursion will reportedly come before she and Harry embark on their first royal tour this fall.
'Meghan and Harry want to solidify ties between the UK and the US,' the source said. 'They want to highlight and foster these relationships.'

Not really. They are married but that does not mean that everything Harry owns automatically becomes Meghan's possession and property. The video of her shows how she was trashing the car, looking for something, util someone came and chase her away. If she was allowed on premises, she would not have been chased away as common thief and intruder.

Solid middle class like Waity but her father did not make as much money as waity's parents did in parties.

Meghan's father was a lightning guy, her mother - we don't know what she did before she reformed into a yoga instructor. At the time Meghan married Trevor she was doing calligraphy for weddings. Hardly any of them would be making enough for a honeymoon in NZ. IMO Trevor whose family is loaded footed the bill for the honeymoon.

I doubt Meghan trashed the car. She was looking for something in the boot and couldn't find it. Her husband, Prince Harry, plays at that polo club and everybody knows they are the Duke and Duchess of Sussex. I don't believe that anyone would be chasing Meghan away, escorting her away or treating her like a thief, certainly not Mark Dyer, one of her husband's closest friends, whose son in his godson and a page at the Sussex's wedding. Both she and Harry appeared at the polo the next day at the same place.

What does your face say about you? Expert reveals the personality traits of four celebrities based on their looks - and the secrets to 'reading' the people in your life
MEGHAN MARKLE
To tell how friendly someone is or how friendly they come across to others, Mr Stevens said people have to look at the distance between someone's eyebrow and the top of the eye.
'Meghan's eyebrows and eyelashes are close to each other which means she's going to be friendly with everybody she meets,' he said.
'But the downside is she could make friends with the wrong people.'
Mr Stevens explained that people can  also understand someone's tolerance levels by looking at the width between their eyes.
As the space between Meghan's is quite small, people need to think about how they approach her when she's in the middle of something.
'If you tapped her on the shoulder and needed her help but she was busy, she wouldn't be happy about it,' he said.
'She would feel like she had been disrespected. It also indicates she's the type of person who likes to focus on things and be able to fix things herself without relying on others.'
He added that Meghan's face indicates that she keeps her stress levels to herself and likes to receive good service, but will always give good service in return.  ??? Escort service; pay for play  :cookie:
'She's focused on getting things done and is analytical, so she is well suited for her role in the royal family,' Ms Stevens said.
He said that Meghan has a shorter gap underneath her nose, the philtrum, which indicates again how focused she is.
This also means she is someone who is always going to look immaculate and present herself well, but she may take things personally.
Mr Stevens said that this shows she has a good sense of humour but won't appreciate jokes that are pointed at someone due to something like their nationality or their appearance.
The face reader added that the bottom lip often indicates someone's generosity levels and the fuller it is the more likely that person is going to give themselves away.
'Meghan thinks about how much she gives herself away and ensures she won't overtax herself,' he said.
Mr Stevens said the width of a person's face is what indicates how other people perceive their confidence levels.
'When we look at these people we think they're more confident, whereas we think those with narrow faces have lower confidence levels and often have to build it up,' he said.
He said that Meghan looks like she has relatively high confidence levels and her 'square forehead' indicates that she likes to start new projects.
Due to her dark brown and shiny eyes, Mr Stevens said there is a sexual attraction surrounding Meghan, as well as a magnetism that draws people in.

Secrets behind the sign off: Signatures reveal Trump is a 'power-conscious alpha male', Meghan is 'insecure' and Mark Zuckerberg 'needs winding up'
When the Duchess of Sussex signed a visitors’ book in Ireland last week, she revealed a signature with a surprising flourish. Graphologists claim handwriting is a key to our personality, so what does Meghan’s say?
https://i.dailymail.co.uk/i/newpix/2018/07/20/01/4E69BBC600000578-5972769-image-m-4_1532045303171.jpg
DUCHESS OF SUSSEX GOODNESS knows what Meghan’s hiding behind the carefully constructed mask. This is the stylised handwriting of a woman who is good at creating a facade and to whom appearance matters very much indeed. The little touches, like that flamboyant hook at the start of her ‘M’, reveal that once she has set her heart on something, nothing will stop her until she’s satisfied her goal. The calligraphic hand tells of a desire for the nice things in life, and its regularity reveals intense self-discipline. She’ll not leave anything to chance — she has very high standards and the motivation for this is social approval. Meghan can be a little apprehensive in the face of anything new, however, and the small round letters in the middle of her signature indicate a surprising lack of confidence. This is a romantic, passionate and devoted woman, albeit one who is self-protective.
http://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/article-5972769/Donald-Trump-Meghan-Markle-Prince-Harry-Prince-William-Kate-Middletons-signatures-analysed.html
The signature looks different from the one in the article after the wedding saying that her signature’s changed.

Again I don't like Meghan Markle but I think we should be honest about what she is and isn't. Meghan Markle was not a calligrapher when she married Trevor. I mean she's always a calligrapher right. But sSuits aired in June of 2011 and she got married in September of 2011. So she had some nice money from the salary of suits when she married Trevor. Personally I think she outgrew Trevor by getting suits and dumped him right after marrying him. Maybe his parents paid for the honeymoon  my in-laws paid for my honeymoon. My parents paid for the expensive wedding. So what. Meghan and Trevor could have paid for their own honeymoon and their own wedding with her salary and his without help from their parents. None of this matters. none of this shows  that she is an unsavory character anyways. It's just a honeymoon.


Title: Re: Duchess Meghan: News and Random chat 2018
Post by: Ariel on July 20, 2018, 08:20:42 pm
At the beginning of Suits Meghan was a very insignificant character that either shows or doesn't show for not more than 5 min. For sure she didn't make 50K per episode back then. Knowing how relationships work - he was the side piece for Trevor for 8 years and now that the sure thing could fly away in Canada, he fell on one knee to keep her. Knowing how rich parents behave - I can almost guarantee that the in-laws paid for the honeymoon.

The problem is not who paid, most certainly not Meghan, but how a free honeymoon to NZ with a different husband is wrongfully advertised in DM as: thrifty Meghan is so low key on her trip with girlfriends to NZ that she spent time in campervan. Especially since, per engagement interview, the second date with Harry was at a $1000 a night tent in Africa. DM checked for us on the price.

Meghan Markle 'motherly' to Harry as Prince admits he was close to 'complete breakdown'
MEGHAN Markle feels the need to be “motherly” towards her husband Harry as the prince revealed he was “very close to complete breakdown” in an explosive tell-all royal biography.
Prince Harry, 33, said he “let everything around me tear me to pieces” as he struggled to come to terms with the loss of his mother, Princess Diana.
Journalist and author Angela Levin said the prince’s vulnerable side means his wife, the Duchess of Sussex, feels like she has to protect him.
In ‘Harry: Conversations with the Prince, seen by Express.co.uk, Ms Levin said: “Unlike William, Harry needs lost of reassurance and understanding.
“Even today he sometimes has an air of vulnerability and sadness.
“It’s part of what has endeared him to so many people of all ages and types around the world and perhaps why Meghan Markle sometimes feels the need to be motherly towards him.”
Prince Harry told how for years he tried to hide his feelings about the loss of Princess Diana.
The prince was just 12 when his beloved mother was torn from him after she was killed in a car crash in a tunnel in Paris in 1997.
Ms Levin said: “For years he had hidden his concerns in public. ‘I was a typical twenty, twenty-five, twenty-eight-year-old running around going ‘life is great’, ‘life is fine’.
“He could help other people, but not himself.
“For years Harry felt he was ‘very close to a complete breakdown on numerous occasions’.
“He knew something was wrong, but he said: ‘I just couldn’t put my finger on it. Instead of dealing with it I buried my head in the sand and let everything around me tear me to pieces.’”
But it was his older brother, William, who Harry eventually opened up to and persuaded him to seek help.
Harry said: “I started to have conversations and actually all of a sudden this grief that I have never processed started to come to the forefront and I was like, there is actually a lo of stuff here that I need to deal with.
“For me personally, my brother, you know, bless him, was a huge support to me. He kept saying ‘This is not right, this is not normal, you need to talk to someone about stuff, it’s OK.’
But it was a few years before the Duke of Sussex found the strength to seek help for his mental health problems.
The 33-year-old told Ms Levin: “The timing wasn’t right. You need to feel it in yourself, you need to find the right person to talk to, as well.”
Prince Harry has continued his mother’s legacy, raising awareness over Aids and homelessness issues, not only in the UK but around the world.
He along with his brother William, sister-in-law Kate and wife Meghan, are patrons to mental health charity, Heads Together.

A wife should not 'mother' her husband. How long after this conversation took place did Harry "find the strength" seek help? I think it's important to sort oneself out before dating, otherwise you'll likely end up with someone who's not right for you.  :-X

^^^I'll buy that.  Most insecure, problematic men marry a mother figure.  Harry's got issues in big neon signs, so, yeah, that adds up.  These type of men, however, are very very high on the Richter scale to have affairs, too, to be "bad boys" against "mommy". 

Also, mothering gets old after a while, too, by Sparkles I bet, so she has miscalculated and made the highest mistake ever by probably thinking that her smother-love will change him.  Nevah happens.

Another classic case of use-em-and-lose-em.

Harry spoke about his near-breakdown issues last year, before his engagement. Angela Levin, then a journalist for a non tabloid publication interviewed him about it as part of the Heads Together endeavour last year, again ages before his engagement.
She's now written a bio on Prince Harry but basically the contents of this article are a rehash of what Harry said publicly then and what she gathered from speaking to him at the time.

I remember when her was asked if Megs helped him with his issues, he didn't respond to the question. In fact, he seemed a bit irritated at her name being mentioned and the idea that she's that important to have had such an impact in his life. He also said that mental illess affects relationships. I remember prior to Megs on the scene, Wills was the one who looked like he needed to relaease his pent up issues, not Harry. I still believe that Harry's taking the hit to protect Wills, as he's the one that went to get help and was on the edge of a breakdown, not Harry, imo. I also think that, sine Megs is a lot like Waity and has done similar things after marriage, such as trying to act all motherly and supportive, that she's to get the spolight off of Wills and questions of the state of their marriage, onto Harry and this mess he's married to.

My issue with the poor noble Harry protecting his family and the queen is the 'poor noble Harry'. He should have trusted his agencies to vet his dates at the Africa tent before he falls for it. Major reckless security issue imo and an 8 figure mistake on his part that the taxpayer is footing the bill for.

Just the way she’s been allowed to carry on since the outing of the bizarre relationship on social media, she’s being used for a reason. Nothing has made any sense also since she was escorted out of the UK around Christmas time 2016 because it looked like a statement of the end was coming but it never did and she spent most of 2017 gaslighting and stalking and making a pest if herself like she did at the polo and trying to get to Pippa’s wedding plus the cringeworthy VF interview. It does seem like Harry’s taking the fall for his family or perhaps the government because I remember the Parliament sex scandal was in the press around the time she came onto the scene. She was basically called an escort by the DM who called her a Soho House girl, so it wouldn’t surprise me if she slept with politicians and royals too. The celebrity wedding trying to pass off as a royal wedding tied it to two very bad scandals; Meghan stayed the night before at the hotel tied to the Profumo sex scandal and she was collected in the same car that picked up Wallis Simpson to go to church. Perhaps “marrying” her, as I believe that was a blessing since the queen attended, that needed to be done to have some control over her and to shut her up from running to the press like her family’s doing. It’s almost like they’re buying time by putting up with this foolishness until she can be booted out with no consequences for Harry and the royal family.
The whole of the royal family has been acting out of character since the engagement onwards with having her close to them in public events and seeming to like her. The truth will eventually come out, but in the meantime, Harry’s taking the big hit because people are disgusted with his choice of wife and him looking like a hypocrite with his polo for charity matches and other things he does for charity.

To me it's odd that Chuck who had gladly cut off his own brother from the free money is going to spend a million in 6 months on clothes for a strager whom he's not even liking. I think that Meg is merching via JM and apart from that is fake rich.

She's all about her brand and the brand clothes but when you look closely - she showed up a few times with sub par weaves, she doesn't have a special person to do eyelash by eyelash but plasters a ready made eyelash extension, her skin looks unkept, her fake teeth are sub-par job if she feels uncomfortable with them and there are pics showing that. To me all this overspending and brand promotion is for show only. I am not sure if she even keeps the samples. I'm inclined to think not. It's the little things that to me really shows that she's still grasping to be rich and famous but is far from there.

Harry being dumb as a rock wouldn’t explain how the rest of the royal family’s reacting towards her; overly kind towards her and in Andrew’s case, being seated next to her at the commonwealth church service. It’s all odd behavior from all of them. I think this has something to do with the royal family’s newest threat, social media, since that’s how this started with rumors of their so called romance broke, the statement indicating trolls on social media and her selling herself as a humanitarian on social media too. A documentary will be airing about the royal family on American tv, channel 7, in August. I expect it to be about the perils of social media and how it can be used to spread good things and not the vapid culture that Meghan represents.

Rubbish because the queen has the final say. This is her wanting her own way in everything, not only the clothes. Funny again how she was allowed to get away with her bs feminist stance during the engagements prior to the wedding and is now yanked back just like her coat of arms reflected.
As much as I like that she’s not with Harry in Amsterdam, it would’ve been interesting to see how she’d react with kids who are HIV positive, surrounding her and touching her.  :cookie:

The RF are very aware that they are walking a very thin line.  They were almost finished off after Diana's Death and will avoid at all costs any risk of a similar situation.  They definitely don’t approve of Waity or Meggles but don’t want to face the backlash of being called a snob or racist.

Imo, Waity’s tolerated but Meghan’s where she is because of the race card. I believe that she would’ve been a thorn in the royal family’s side for years by marketing herself as his ex and crying racism at any attempts to have that narrative shut down. It’s murky how they met and why she’s allowed to get away with so much. But I believe that it’s bigger than Harry getting caught up with this strumpet. I’d feel more comfortable after she’s finally booted out for good and hopefully the laws change on Harry being gaslighted just like Ellie Goulding, Cressida and all of the other actress and others in the entertainment business.

They're a lovely couple. But why IS Princess Eugenie having such a preposterously lavish wedding? JAN MOIR on the lowly royal given a wedding just like Harry and Meghan whose hunger for glitz and glamour is every bit as monstrous as Mother

It’s time for this narcissistic strumpet to push off out of the royal family and the U.K.

OF course she'll come after Eug. Eug is classy and regal, has friends and family who want to come to her wedding and want to genuinely congratulate her. She's basically everything Meghan is not and would never be and since Meghan overspent on ill fitting and tacky stuff, why not blame the real princess with real class on what's lacking in you. Classic denial.

The York sisters are perfectly fine but I don't know why Eugenie and Meghan have to be compared. The DM spread the allegations about how much was "spent" but since they have no access to what was paid, they have no clue. I don't think EUgenie's wedding will come cheap. The royals spend money like water even the York sisters. Those marrying into the family like MEghan are royal as well. THe DM has these click bait articles all the time. Why not just write about Eugenie who is the bride to be and the DM writers should leave Meghan out of it.

How Meghan Markle Should Deal With Her Family, According To Therapists
“Meghan needs to identify with people who elevate her with their good character, kindheartedness, vibrancy and humanity ― in her case, people like her mom.”


If you’ve ever dealt with toxic family members, you’ve probably felt for Meghan Markle, now the Duchess of Sussex, in the last few months.

Weeks before her May 19 royal wedding, her half-brother Thomas Markle Jr. made headlines with a scathing letter released to the tabloids that claimed she’d cut off her family and urged Prince Harry to reconsider the marriage.

Last week, her half-sister Samantha Grant ― the most vocal of the ever-vocal Markles  ― escalated the family feud with a series of angry tweets on her private account targeting the former actress. Multiple outlets captured screenshots of the tweets.

“My father is not an embarrassment for loving his daughter! The Royals are an embarrassment for being so cold,” Grant wrote on June 17. “You should be ashamed of yourselves @KensingtonRoyal.”

“How about you pay tribute to your own father?! Enough is enough,” Grant continued. “Act like a humanitarian act like a woman! If our father dies I’m holding you responsible, Meg!” (Grant is reportedly appearing on the upcoming season of the U.K.’s “Celebrity Big Brother,” so prepare for more of this “scorned sister” act.)

The tweet tirade occurred two days after the Duchess of Sussex’s father, Thomas Markle, told The Sun that he thought his daughter looked “terrified” to be a royal and that she hadn’t spoken to him since the day after her wedding to Prince Harry.

It can be hard to watch family drama playing out on such a public stage ― even more so if you have equally difficult family members and can relate. It can’t be easy on the new American-born royal, either.

With that in mind, we asked family therapists to share the advice they’d give the Duchess of Sussex ― and anyone else with toxic family members.

^ :laugh: :laugh:Murky does not appear to have a good character, that is the problem. Treats her family like dirt, walks all over the rf, does everything her own way, looks a total mess and rarely gets it right.  I personally think her family are in on all this, something going on there IMO.  We will wait and see.  And no, I don´t feel for murky, she is the mistress of her own fate, she and she alone has caused all this with her lies and deceit.  I feel no pity for her whatsoever, she has caused herself to be a victim, she and she alone.  The rf were pretty dumb to allow her in, and I still think there is far, far more to this alleged match than meets the eye.  Dork haza´s body language is not good. He tries to act it out, but gets caught on camera looking tense and wishing he was elsewhere, totally different when on an engagement on his own, just like dork bill medd.  Let murky pack off back to the US, they can have her back, because most in the UK don´t want her, she gets worse and worse as time goes a long.  Such a rubbish article.  Murky chose this path, pushed everyone else out of the way to get it, let her paddle her own canoe, she deserves no sympathy as far as I am concerned.  The rf deserve what they get for letting her in, but I have a smattering of sympathy, because it will take a lot to kick this strumpet out, she will dig her heels in and turn mean, vicious and nasty to the end is my take on it all.

Is Meghan Markle Allowed to Be a Bridesmaid in Priyanka Chopra's Wedding?
Royal reporter Omid Scobie spills the palace tea.
As you're probably already aware, Nick Jonas and Priyanka Chopra are the latest celebrity couple to get engaged after just two months of dating. Which...sure, why not!
As you're also probably already aware, Priyanka is extremely good friends with former Suits star and current Duchess Meghan Markle—in fact, she and Nick just spent the weekend visiting Meg and Harry in their country home. So now the question on everyone's minds is, of course, will Meghan be a bridesmaid in her friend's upcoming wedding? And, more importantly, is she even allowed to be one?
The short answer: Yes. The long answer: Yes, but it's complicated.
"There is no protocol that dictates whether an adult female member of the British Royal Family can take on the role of a bridesmaid or maid of honor at a non-royal's wedding," royal reporter Omid Scobie tells Cosmopolitan.com. "However, it is an unlikely scenario for one simple reason: A female royal would not be expected to walk behind a 'commoner.' This is why in the past we saw Pippa Middleton as Duchess Kate’s maid of honor, but when Pippa got married Kate read a prayer."
When it comes to British royal weddings in particular, adult bridesmaids aren't commonplace—Pippa Middleton's role in Kate and William's wedding was actually a notable exception. And even if Kate had wanted to return the favor at her sister's wedding, Scobie says, "There’s also the risk of taking all the attention off the bride herself! In June, all eyes were on Sweden’s Princess Madeleine instead of her close childhood friend getting married when she served as a bridesmaid."
Chances are Priyanka's wedding will feature a bridal party, and ultimately if Meghan is invited to partake, the Palace won't stand in her way. "Should a female member of the Royal Family choose to take on a bridal party role at a friend's wedding, it would be her own decision," Scobie says. "There’s no rule that wouldn’t allow this and she certainly wouldn’t need permission or guidance from Palace aides." In conclusion: Feminism, etc.
Good to know—right, Priyanka? And P.S. If you're wondering whether the Palace is down with royal men being groomsmen, the answer is also yes. Most recently, Prince William served as the best man in Meghan and Harry's May wedding (an official role that the palace confirmed), and Harry is poised to be best man at the upcoming ceremony of his friends Charlie Van Straubenzee and Daisy Jenks on August 4.

Why Kate Middleton Might Be Travelling Home To UK For Meghan Markle's Birthday This Weekend
As August approaches, the royal family's engagements are starting to slow down, with the Cambridges already reported to be enjoying a holiday in Mustique.
The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Prince George, Princess Charlotte, and Prince Louis were spotted making their way to the private Caribbean island of Mustique, royal blogger Tea Time with the Cambridges pointed out earlier this month. But we could be seeing the Duke and Duchess back on home ground a little sooner than expected.
The couple are thought to be returning to the UK this week, in time to watch their friend, Charlie van Straubenzee, marry Daisy Jenks in Surrey on Saturday.
But the wedding isn't the only occasion that might bring the royals together on Saturday. It's the Duchess of Sussex's 37th birthday, and with Meghan and Harry also tipped to attend the nuptials, the royal couples might even get to celebrate together.  ??? Aren't they supposed to be married? Wouldn't a hiusband usually celebrate his wife's birthday? More and more articles like this confirms that they're not married and not living together, imo. The gig should really be up now.  :bored:
https://www.elle.com/uk/life-and-culture/culture/a22599649/kate-middleton-meghan-markle-birthday-weekend/

IVF seems to be "in vogue" now and seems to produce multiple births. It won't surprise me if she goes for it. Are royals allowed to have surrogates carry children to term (say Meg and Harry are the bio parents of an egg or eggs that need to be implanted). Just curious/\,

'She should be careful what she wishes for': Paul Burrell warns Meghan she will struggle with life as a royal - and urges her to 'get on' with having a baby

    EXCLUSIVE: Diana's former butler said Meghan would soon have a baby
    Urged the Duchess, who turns 37 tomorrow, to 'get on' with starting a family
    Also told how Meghan might struggle with scrutiny now that she's a royal
    Mr Burrell, 60, also insisted Prince Charles, 69, would never be King

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/article-6020671/Paul-Burrell-warns-Meghan-struggle-life-Royal-Family.html


On the topic of H&M saying they don't want to start straight away with babies, but wait.... I think that's just talk to minimize pressure and reduce tabloid talk and bump watching. Whether any of them is infertile or not, it's a good tactic for anyone, I'd say the same if I just married and those questions arose just to keep pressure and speculation at bay. Obvs it doesn't quash talk 100%, but it def helps. When you announce you're trying, then even a sneeze is subject to speculation on "is there a bun in the oven or not?" and when it's not happening it just causes stress and due to the stress makes conception harder still.

In short, they may have said they want to wait with family expansion, but it may have been hot air.
I mean most of that bs engagement interview was hot air and a load of lies anyway.

Meghan Markle Leaning on Prince Harry and Close Friends Amid Drama With Her Father Thomas (Exclusive)
Meghan Markle has the unwavering support of her new husband, Prince Harry, and a few loyal gal pals in the wake of her father, Thomas Markle, continuing to speak out to the press, a source tells ET.

According to our source, Meghan is dealing with her father -- as well as her half-sister, Samantha -- speaking out negatively about the royal family by surrounding herself with a close group of friends and Harry. The source says Meghan and Harry have been hosting friends at their cottage in Kensington Palace, including Serena Williams and Meghan's best friend and stylist, Jessica Mulroney.

“Meghan doesn’t have a huge circle of friends and the recent weekends with Serena and Jessica were just what she needed,” the source tells ET. “The stress of her father’s continued indiscretion is upsetting but she’s coping with it the best way she knows how with the support of her husband and BFFs.”


The source says Meghan and Harry have been enjoying double dates with Williams and her husband, Alexis Ohanian, and also notes that the former Suits star is as close as ever to Mulroney.

“Serena and Alexis Ohanian have spent time with Meghan and Harry at their country house before the start of Wimbledon, and Jessica Mulroney just returned to London to support Meghan while she’s been dealing with the drama with her father," the source says. “Jessica was and still remains Meghan’s stylist ...she’s been at Meghan's side during the toughest time of her life.”

Above all, our source says Harry has made sure to support Meghan through her difficult family situation, adding that the 33-year-old royal has also introduced her to his own tight cicle of friends -- including polo player Nacho Figueras and his wife, Delfina Blaquier. Figueras recently joked about being the third wheel to Harry and Meghan at a charity polo match, when the newlyweds shared a kiss onstage.

“Meghan has few very close friends and Harry has made sure that she knows she’s loved and supported," the source says. "Meghan is really settling into royal life. She’s been welcomed by Harry's close friends.”

“It’s been great for Meghan, when she’s been under so much stress because of her father and sister’s public attacks, to be able to have Harry get to know and double date with her friends and spend time with Harry’s married friends also,” the source continues. “Meghan is really looking forward to a busy fall and throwing herself into her royal life and work ahead. She’s always been devoted to her humanitarian work and is looking forward to making an impact with Harry.”

Last month, a source also told ET that Meghan and her sister-in-law, Kate Middleton, have also become "closer than ever," and have bonded through their shared interest in their Royal Foundation work. The two attended Wimbledon together in July -- their first solo outing together without husbands Harry and Prince William -- to watch Williams play, though she lost to Angelique Kerber.

Meanwhile, in Thomas' latest interview over the weekend, he claimed that he has officially been "cut off" from his daughter.

"I'm really hurt that she's cut me off completely," he told The Mail on Sunday. "I used to have a phone number and text number for her personal aides at the Palace, but after I said a few critical words about the royal family changing Meghan, they cut me off. Those numbers were disconnected, they no longer work. I have no way of contacting my daughter."

"Perhaps it would be easier for Meghan if I died," he also said, referencing his previous health issues. "Everybody would be filled with sympathy for her. But I hope we reconcile. I'd *despise* to die without speaking to Meghan again."

ET recently spoke with royal expert Katie Nicholl, who explained how the royal family plans to deal with Thomas' controversial comments.

"The strategy at Kensington Palace, I understand, is, 'Say nothing, don't dignify these comments, these interviews, these articles with a response,'" Nicholl said. "The royal family has had more than their fair share of scandals. This won't faze them."

Meghan is presumably now looking forward to celebrating her 37th birthday on Aug. 4, which she'll actually spend part of at the wedding of Harry's close friend, Charlie Van Straubenzee. Harry is serving as the best man at the wedding, and Van Straubenzee also attended Meghan and Harry's nuptials in May.

EXCLUSIVE: Inside Meghan Markle's childhood homes: The 'rags to riches' story of the American-born royal, who lived in cramped, dingy flats until she found fame in Suits and married Prince Harry
The modest housing is in stark contrast to her grand abode now in Kensington Palace, where she and Prince Harry live in a two-bedroom cottage.
Doria and Thomas had married at the Self-Realization Fellowship Temple on Sunset Blvd, in a 'hippie wedding' in December 1979.
They divorced four years later and Meghan went to live with her mother in a top-floor apartment on S. Cloverdale Ave, Mid-Wilshire.
Although Meghan lived in this modest apartment until she was 11, she attended a prestigious private nursery and kindergarten called Little Red Schoolhouse which starts at $18,800 a year for kindergarten and $22,600 year for sixth-grade.
Her mother Doria, 62, had a less glamorous location for her line of business, which was still only a stone's throw away from the school - now called the Hollywood Schoolhouse.
She owned a gift shop called Distant Treasures and a clothing store called A Change of a Dress - both at the same location on N. La Brea St in Hancock Park for 14 years - until she went bankrupt in 2009.
When Meghan moved on to the $15,900-a-year Immaculate Heart High School, which she attended from 1991 to 1999, she lived with her dad on Vista Del Mar Avenue, a shabby street behind the Hollywood strip, only a few hundred yards from one of Scientology's most important buildings, founder L. Ron Hubbard Life Exhibition.
This is where Thomas recently said in an interview that he'd warned his daughter off the controversial religion after catching her lingering outside the building.
Her father's apartment was on the ground floor and had two tiny bedrooms with bars across the windows.
She lived there until she was 17.
According to Morton's book, 'it made sense for her to live with her father during the week.'
'It was a decision that would have far-reaching implications for the way she was seen by her new teachers and classmates…The older she became, the more she felt she was the one who was mothering her father. It was a source of friction, especially when she started dating,' the book states.
Trevor
When she left high school to attend Northwestern University in Illinoisshe met film producer Trevor Engelson in a bar on one of her visits back home in LA.
'When Meghan first met him on that night out in West Hollywood, she liked what she saw and was attracted to his passion, drive, and ambition. He was a guy with an aphorism for every occasion. 'Hope is the greatest currency we have in this business,' he told the wide-eyed wannabe.' True or not, it's a great pick-up line,' Morton wrote.
The pair lived behind Whisky A Go-Go, a notorious club on Sunset Strip in West Hollywood, where Engelson still lives today and Meghan resided there until getting her big break in Suits and relocating to Toronto for filming in 2011, divorcing the 41-year-old two years later.

Yet it was her childhood that defined Meghan, the aspiring actress and now adored royal. 'While her childhood experiences were the crucible that set her on the path to activism,' says Morton.

'Her mother believes that she was hardwired from birth to try to make the world a better and more equal place. In short, she had a moral compass.'
Despite wanting to be a Hollywood star, it was her faith that was equally important and the central pillar for Meghan and Doria.
So much so, that we can disclose she was once a youth minister for the Agape International Spiritual Center, which her mum is still a member today, along with TV host Oprah Winfrey.
Sharon Fox, now an executive producer at California Motion Picture Company, was also a member and told her Facebook followers about bumping into the duchess and her husband Prince Harry in Dublin earlier this month.
'It was such a nice surprise to bump into them when I went to Dublin to view the Book of Kells. Meghan was very sweet and I had a short chat with her during her stop on the walk about regarding our church, the Agape International Spiritual Center, and our mutual minister, Reverend Michael Bernard Beckwith... Meghan was a youth minister at my church, Agape, in LA years ago when I used to volunteer with the babies and toddlers on Church Sunday at Agape… I can not recall if I ever met her back then but it is clear she radiates that Agape spirit where ever she goes.'

Meghan Markle 'politely declines an invitation to attend the Emmys and present an award' in Los Angeles next month
Meghan Markle has reportedly declined an invitation to the Emmy Awards in Los Angeles next month.
The Duchess of Sussex and her husband Prince Harry had been invited to attend the Hollywood award ceremony as special guests, sources told The Sun.
The former Suits star is said to have 'politely turned down' the invitation and that her decision was a 'line in the sand' between her acting career and new life as a royal.
'Show executives and NBC had offered Harry and her an invitation to celebrate with the biggest stars around, meet her showbiz friends and even present an honor,' the source told the publication.
'We had hoped Meghan would attend as a way of saying goodbye to her Suits fans and colleagues.'
The 37-year-old had been put forward for an Emmy award for her role as Rachel Zane on her final season of Suits.
Her name had been submitted for the Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series category but the newly-minted royal never ended up being nominated.
Meghan's final episode of Suits saw her tie the knot with on-screen love interest Patrick J. Adams, aired back in March.
It came some four months after she permanently relocated to London and wed Prince Harry.
Meghan was based in Toronto filming the TV show when she met Prince Harry in 2016, and starred in seven seasons of the drama.
She revealed she would be quitting acting after announcing their engagement back in November.

IMO it would be a big no no for her to be at the Emmys since she's a royal. It is not a "fun" appearance it's one of the royals being on the red carpet to present an award. The show executives are getting mileage about the "invite" and some "buzz" for the Emmys but no way would Harry and Meghan show up IMO.

I bet she was invited. Good exposure for the Emmys & Murky. And I bet Megsy thought she could go, Charlene and Albert went to the Oscars and Grace Kelly was somewhat invloved in film (though she was largely forbidden from filming etc). And I bet she didn't expect that she wouldn't be allowed to attend, as "honorary guest" or some bs. The best she can attend these days in terms of films are the BAFTAs and those mean nothing to her.
I said ages ago that I bet Murky will be invited to the Emmys and other awards, only she can't go and I bet Megsy wasn't planning on that. :cookie:

The Emmys want the "buzz" out there. I think the "rules" about show biz were told to her in advance that she could not attend these award shows. The royals had lessons in the past that this sort of thing would often not "work" and I think they are sticking to their rules.

Grace Kelly wasn't "somewhat" involved in film. She was a member of the academy and was awarded an Oscar in 1955. IIRC, Albert & Charlene went because she was being honored posthumously for something and they went to receive on her behalf. They didn't go just to walk the red carpet. This is much different than IF (a ginormous IF) Marbles was invited. 


Title: Re: Duchess Meghan: News and Random chat 2018
Post by: HRHOlya on August 07, 2018, 09:09:27 pm
^ I know that :) I meant "somewhat involved" after marriage. She wasn't allowed to take on film roles, the Monegasque people protested so she withdrew from the one project she was finally after years allowed to take on and then instead read poetry on tours. She also presented  a couple or so awards (to friends, and I think soonish after marriage, not later on), and narrated a documentary - hence my "somewhat" comment.

Yeah, Charlene & Albert went with a purpose and not to hobnob. When C&A want to hobnob, they have events in Monaco.

I do think that Murky was invited, because a "royal" brings another level of "prestige", and also in spite of the prestige and importance of these awards (Grammys, Emmys, Tonys and Oscars - to name only the big-wigs) they still need every year new buzz and coverage and attraction. Viewing numbers are going down and interest by the general population as well, they've all been working hard for years to stay relevant with non-industry people (primarily viewers and magazine buyers).

H&M are a big attraction, esp in the first year.

Meghan Markle’s ‘devastated’ ex-husband set to dish the dirt
Just when you thought there couldn’t be more scandal surrounding Meghan Markle, shock new reports claim her ex-husband Trevor Engelson could be gearing up to finally break his silence on their doomed two-year marriage.
Samantha has spoken out, claiming Meghan’s ex Trevor is fed up with how he’s been treated during the duchess’ whirlwind romance to Prince Harry.
“He said he was devastated, that he felt like a piece of gum at the bottom of his shoe,” Samantha told the Sun. “He slammed Meg.”
https://www.google.com/amp/s/uk.style.yahoo.com/amphtml/meghan-markles-devastated-ex-husband-set-dish-dirt-2-084759095.html
I think it was posted in the Markle’s thread. I guess she’ll have her hands full trying to get him to stay quiet like she did prior to the wedding. She’ll need to pay him more money that I doubt she has and besides, Trevor has a duty to expose her anyway because she’s treating everyone like dirt as she plays the shy duchess.

Reproductive harassment is asking someone when they’re having a baby – and it’s the horribly uncomfortable question childless women dread
Take the recent speculation from Paul Burrell, Princess Diana’s disgraced former butler, about when the Duchess of Sussex might have a child. He said: ‘There’s not much time left for Meghan, she’s going to have to get on with it.’
http://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/article-6040861/Reproductive-harassment-horribly-uncomfortable-question-childless-women-dread.html
The difference is that she's expected to have a baby whereas other woman arren't.
Gossip is that she's unable to have children and if that's true, Trevor will spill the beans on that.

Meghan Markle Stars in Feminist Ad for UN
It's been only a few months since Meghan Markle and Prince Harry tied the knot, but she's already started work on her royal legacy. That includes bringing more awareness to gender inequality, as she pledged on the British monarchy's website she would do . She's making good on that promise, starring in a new ad for UN Women.
"We see potential leaders everywhere," the tagline reads. "It's time for more women to see it in themselves. Nominate a woman in your life."
This isn't the first partnership Markle has had with UN Women. Back in 2015, before Markle had even met Prince Harry, the then Suits actress gave a rousing speech on International Women’s Day for UN Women. In it, she talked about her feminist awakening at the age of 11, when she campaigned against a sexist Proctor & Gamble ad and eventually got them to change it. "They changed it from ‘Women all over America are fighting greasy pots and pans’ to ‘People all over America,’" she said. "It was at that moment that I realized the magnitude of my actions. At the age of 11 I had created my small level of impact by standing up for equality."
In the same speech, Markle spoke about the importance of feminism, saying, “I am proud to be a woman and a feminist.... [Gender inequality] has to change. Women make up more than half of the world’s population and potential, so it is neither just nor practical for their voices, for our voices, to go unheard at the highest levels of decision-making.... Women need a seat at the table, they need an invitation to be seated there, and in some cases, where this is not available, well then, you know what, they need to create their own table."
She's since made that her mission with her role at the Royal Foundation, as she revealed in February. "Even if it's doing it quietly behind the scenes, which is what I've focused my energy on thus far," she said, "Meeting with the right people, meeting with the organizations behind the scenes quietly, learning as much as I can so I can maximize the opportunity we have here to really make an impact."
Markle also referenced the #MeToo and Time's Up movements, adding that "there is no better time than to really continue to shine a light on women feeling empowered and people really helping to support them, men included in that."
One man included? Her husband Prince Harry. As she previously told a fan of Harry's, "He’s a feminist too, so there’s that."
https://www.wmagazine.com/story/meghan-markle-feminist-ad-un-women?mbid=social_facebook
How's this allowed?It's all bspr stuff as every actress seems to have the feminist bent  as part of their image.

 Murky is no humanitarian or a feminist because of a class project involving a soap ad.
 Kim Kardashian lobbied to get a 63 year woman pardoned from a life sentence involving drug offenses, and to discuss prison reform during a White House visit.  When Murky's feeble humanitarian "efforts" are outdone by a hideously self-absorbed Kardashian in one shot, that's saying A LOT,  because I am nowhere near a fan of that koven either.
Just my 2 cents.

I feel sorry for Trevor's wife (are they married yet) she may watch all this and see how he gets "even" with his first spouse and wonder what would happen to her should she displease him. I think the mud slinging would hurt both Trevor and Meghan. Maybe Trevor would get the worst of it, showing how he holds grudges and makes money out of it at the same time.

I think Meghan got a physical to see if she could have children.


Title: Re: Duchess Meghan: News and Random chat 2018
Post by: Ariel on August 09, 2018, 02:23:44 pm
The problem with getting even is that people who do that don't wait for 10 years to start on a revenge streak, especially if there are no kids involved. With Corry's new gf being pregnant, if Trevor's new gf and future wife gets pregnant soon after that -- this will throw serious shade on Meghan and her ability to conceive.


Trevor making a movie about Meghan, possibly inviting Samantha - it's just cashing in. It's not honorable but it's also not something Meghan wouldn't do if she was in his shoes.

^This is true.  Plus, it's the guy's career. This is what he does for a living so I find it reasonable to craft something that reflects your own life.  It's not that unusual.  And what if the gf/new wife or what have you is clearly not a fan of Sparkles and so on?  What does she care?

The interesting thing is how far more experienced and successful H'Wood image control and spin are than the BRF as this thing unfolds.  They are unmatched at selling a personality.  Bet Sparkles misses that.  :cookie:

Post by: sandy on August 09, 2018, 03:54:45 pm
She may not like Meghan but she might be concerned that Trevor would turn on her if she displeased him. If he remained on civil terms with his ex I would imagine it would reassure her that he is a decent person not out to get "even" for whatever...Men sometimes treat women badly in general.

Her exes got other women pregnant but perhaps Meghan did not want to have children then and was on the pill or birth control.  Maybe the new significant others of her exes wanted children right away. But in any case for all of them I think having children is a personal thing and one situation is not the same as another. There are celebrities and rich and famous that have had many exes and no children but have them later in life. And when Trevor's child is born he should focus on his wife to be and child and create a loving environment in the home. Later on his children might ask about why Dad went to the press to talk about his first wife.

^Exactly. Unless there's something damning, spicy or revealing, the only time by the end of this year in which Meghan will be interesting is around Harry's birthday. From then on it will be all about Eugenie and her wedding, and the first Christmas for the new Dukes. If Eug gets pregnant by  Christmas, which I'd expect, there will be a countdown watch of her and Megan will be even less interesting.

^^^His wife to be is not from the entertainment business so think it's safe to say that she won't be running to all the talk shows to trash him like Anna Faris did this whole year and she's not famous enough to spill dirt on. I think they'll be ok if they love each other.


Title: Re: Duchess Meghan: News and Random chat 2018
Post by: sandy on August 09, 2018, 04:47:58 pm
The trend now in the RF appears to wait a year or two to have children. Meghan being older than her cousin in law would probably mean she would have a baby  before the other bride.. Just speculating. I doubt Trevor can hurt Meghan's being in the RF but  if he does this but he may be hurting himself and Meghan.I would be disappointed if he goes that route. Nice guys don't do things like that. I thought he was a nice guy. I hope that's turns out to be the case.

His wife may not be concerned about talk shows and his going to them, just possible domestic or emotional abuse if he does this with his first wife. A red flag perhaps for her. Whether or not she's in the entertainment industry if she sees how vindictive he can be she may be worried about herself and his treatment of her.

Charles and most others wear theirs underneath their signet rings. Phil supposedly wore his the same way, until his issues with his hands became too bad for ring wearing, so for a few years now he hasn't worn any rings whatsoever. Some also wear their wedding rings on the 4th finger and the signet on the other hand or the signet next to it on the pinkie.

I just don't know when Harry received his, in the backroom like all other Windsor men or during the ring exchange? I didn't watch the wedding so don't know, can anyone clarify?

Meghan Markle revealed her dreams about becoming a princess four YEARS ago - and even referred to the 'pomp' surrounding her future sister-in-law Kate
The entry, written by Meghan, 37, in 2014 during her time as Rachel Zane on law drama Suits, spoke about her dreams of being She-Ra, the Princess of Power.
It continued to describe how women still harbour fantasies of being a princess, citing the 'circumstance and pomp' surrounding Kate Middleton - who she described as 'Princess Kate' - as proof.
Admitting that dreams of being a princess aren't just confined to children, Meghan added: 'And grown women seem to retain this childhood fantasy.
'Just look at the pomp and circumstance surrounding the royal wedding and endless conversation about Princess Kate.'
And this was just two years before the now Duke and Duchess of Sussex met in the summer of 2016 after being set up on a blind date by a mutual friend, thought to be fashion designer Misha Nonoo.

She knew who he was and was out to get him, marrying in white the nerve ,get rid Harry of all this lot of trash.

Her own words are doing her in. Now the timeline and the real circumstances at how they met and why she’s where she is now should be addressed. The comments are bad to Harry but scathing to her as her. She’s a proven liar.

So she clearly knew about the RF, despite claiming not to. She was obviously following the royal wedding. IMO she was already trying to snag Harry by presenting herself as a girl-next-door type who cares more about feminism than being a typical princess. Funny for her to sneer at pomp and circumstance and Cinderellas when she had a horse drawn carriage and a tiara and now isn't free to speak up about any of the causes she supposedly cares so much about. If Harry wasn't a prince she wouldn't have given him a second glance.

Good question. I think in this day and age it is not a big dream.

But that said, the PR for others in that family that married in is they wanted to be royals. For one reason or another. In this day and age I find that rather an anachronism. Just my opinion.

IMO, I think Harry started dating the model to get Meghan off his back; to show that they weren’t exclusive. I don’t think that Meghan just happened to go on a date with Harry without someone putting her in a situation to have met him. The timeline and the circumstances of when and where they met. The press is slowly getting things out about the lies told during the engagement interview.
Sophia of Sweden talking about cyber bullying and the heavy criticism she received since her romance with Carl Philip became known. I don’t get what she expected or Carl for that matter. It’s not hateful when legitimate concern or criticism is leveled at a situation like this because of what she’s about and having her in a situation where young women aspire to be and would want to emulate. She’s part of the trashy culture today that celebrates women like her. The concept of what it is to be royal and what’s expected of them has gone way down market because of these simple minded prince’s and their very low choices of spouses that they expect the public to accept without criticism or backlash. No decent hardworking woman should have to genuflect to women who easily used their bodies to get their position. It’s madness. Anyway, Meghan’s getting mentioned and compared to Sophia.

^^He was linked to the Victoria actress before Meghan. If I’m not mistaken, Jenna Coleman was dating her co-star but went along with the pr that came from the speculation of her dating Harry.
I sometimes feel that this thing with Meghan will eventually shed light on how pr games are played to manipulate the public. The royals use pr too but there’s some sincerity behind it unlike the woman that’ve being linked to Harry who just want worldwide attention for themselves to increase name recognition. They could care less about what damage their games would have on Harry and his charity work.
^I doubt Harry’s dumb and blind as he’s not rushing to her defense as she’s rightly being exposed in the press and comments. Comments about her living in Soho House has been popping up more in the comments on the DM articles. I’m waiting now for the discussion about if this marriage is legal as the queen can’t attend weddings that one party is divorced, only the blessing ceremony. Also, what’s the status of her visa and tax issue.

I still believe MEggles decided she wanted to be a "princess" so she leaked to the press that she and Harry were dating even though they'd never even met yet. The press took off with the story and whenever there was a possibility of losing Harry, MEggles pulled the race card. Harry is no innocent in this, that's for sure but I think MEggles and her PR set all this up.

Harry's the type who can never be single. He's always secretly dating or trying to date someone even if he doesn't have a "public" girlfriend. Same with William. No wonder they ended up marrying the women who did. Decent women can spot that behavior a mile away and have no interest in men like that. Meghan was always looking for a "better" man from the one she was with, so she arranged to be at the right place at the right time.

Will Meghan take up POLO? Top female player says she wants to see more royal women taking part in the sport - and their husbands cheering from the sidelines
The world's top female polo player has said she'd like to see more royal women taking part in the sport.
British polo player Nina Clarkin, 35, said she would like to see a 'young royal female' playing in the future - while their husband watches from the sideline.
It comes after Meghan, 37, cheered on husband Prince Harry as he took part in the Sentebale Polo Cup in Berkshire last month.
Polo is a favourite royal past-time, with both Prince William and Harry, as well as their cousin Zara Tindall, regularly taking part in charity matches.
Speaking about her desire to see more female royals playing the sport, Nina told the Telegraph: 'I hope to see a young royal female in the future playing the polo match and her husband watching from the sideline.
'My husband does it for me and I think it is completely possible and is probably going to happen.'
Nina explained that the sport is now attracting many more female players, at all levels of the game.
She added: 'I have been playing a long time now and the number of women in the sport is growing exponentially.'
Before their engagement announcement, Meghan attended a polo event with Prince Harry at Coworth Park, Berkshire, in May 2017.  bignono she crashed that one and got escorted out.
However, childhood photographs of Meghan show her horse riding, suggesting that learning to ride wouldn't be a barrier to her taking up polo in the future.

A rather interesting grumbling about the new life of a duchess where the A-listers she didn't know before the wedding are not so interested in being friends with a snakey. What a shocker  :hi:

Quote
This TV actress thought that the many celebrities she invited to her wedding were her new group of friends.

Not really.

[All those celebrity friends] aren’t really available for day to day chats and she is starting to think that some of them may have been using her a little bit. She thought her new sister in law would warm up to her after the wedding, but that didn’t happen either. She is “on the cool side.”

She is very busy and has a lot of people around her, but [her husband] is really her only friend right now. She is feeling lonely. That’s why her mom may be moving closer to her.

Will Meghan Markle ask her friend Misha Nonoo to help decorate when she and Prince Harry move into a big new Kensington Palace apartment?
For fashion designer Misha reveals she’s planning to branch out into interiors.
‘I’m so fascinated by home design and would like to have some sort of home line,’ she says.
‘The space that you live in is such an extension of the way that you dress yourself.’
Misha, who was married to Harry’s chum Alexander Gilkes, adds: ‘When I was going through my divorce, I decided that I really wanted to have a very fresh start, so in my apartment there’s not one piece of furniture that exists from my previous life.’
