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.’

Exclusive: The Duchess of Sussex travels to Toronto
@KENSINGTONROYAL/TWITTER
A source has confirmed to Royal Central that the Duchess of Sussex has flown into Toronto.
The Duchess was travelling without her husband as she flew into her former home on an Air Canada flight on Saturday.
Kensington Palace sent a letter to Air Canada staff beforehand asking that no one take Meghan’s picture or approach her on the flight. :bored: yet both Wills and Harry, actual VIP's have had their pictures taken on planes and trains.
Meghan still has close friends who live in the city, including the Mulroneys. All three of their children played roles in her May wedding to Prince Harry. It is likely she is visiting with them.
It is also rumoured that she will be visiting Los Angeles this summer before resuming work again in September.  :tehe:
http://royalcentral.co.uk/uk/cambridges/exclusive-the-duchess-of-sussex-travels-to-toronto-107485
Who knows with this one if it's true. I think the kogical place for her to go is back to LA as she has no business in Toronto unless it's to get a top up from Markus, her Soho House pal or Jessica, her horrid stylist. Hofefully she's out of the UK and wont gain entry back.  :cookie:

I wonder if this is true, for starters, but if it is, I'm guessing no US flight would honor that request.  It's not their job to be her protection force and it would set a precedence.  Celebrities are approached all the time or take a private aircraft which is what I bet miss fussy panties is going to do from Canada to the US.

I was thinking... is it rhinoplasty gone wrong or one of the veneers broke. Or is she a flight drinker... or evil grandma Betty stops her from merching on the airport and she's forced to wear her own clothes.

Also, what's the reason of going to Canada? Troubles with the merching agreeements perhaps..

Meghan Markle 'flies to Toronto' without Harry amid family fued
MEGHAN Markle has jetted to Canada, it has been reported. The Duchess of Sussex flew to Toronto on an Air Canada flight on Sunday without Prince Harry, according to Royal Central.
https://www.express.co.uk/news/uk/1005364/meghan-markle-news-prince-harry-toronto-canada-us-tour-royal-news

Meghan Markle will be just 150 MILES from dad Thomas on visit to see mum - but will they meet to heal rift?
Meghan, 37, is jetting to the US to see mum Doria Ragland on a personal holiday - just a short distance from where Thomas Markle Snr, 74, lives over the border in Rosarito, Mexico
Meghan Markle’s trip to L­A could give her the ideal opportunity for a reconciliation with dad Thomas after three months of not talking.
But the former Hollywood lighting director has had no word as to whether his daughter is ready to meet him during the solo visit to see her mum.
And royal sources have warned Thomas could put any chance of a resolution to their problems at risk if he carries on with his public outbursts and sniping at her and the royals.
Meghan, 37, will fly to the US to see mum Doria Ragland on a personal holiday. Thomas, 74, lives 150 miles away across the border in Rosarito, Mexico.
He and Meghan have not spoken since her wedding to Prince Harry on May 19, after his staged ­paparazzi photos scandal was exposed.
A royal source said: “The past few weeks will no doubt have been ­incredible stressful for Meghan and no one wants this saga to continue for her.
“Hopefully she can find some way of seeking a resolution with her father but going back to her roots for a few days is exactly what she needs right now.
It is thought she may schedule in a visit to Toronto, Canada to see close friends and former co-stars from the hit TV show Suits which she starred in from 2011 as Rachel Zane for six years.
She has been in regular contact with Doria and best friend Jessica Mulroney and has taken their advice on what action to take as Thomas and his side of the family continue to embarrass her.
Meghan made Jessica ­unofficial maid of honour and included all three of the couple’s children in the wedding.
Harry is not expected to travel to the US with his wife. But it was reported yesterday that “early talks” have taken place about the couple attending a charity polo match in LA or Santa Barbara, California, as part of an ­American tour next spring.
The couple have a number of engagements planned around the UK in September before they embark on an ­international tour of Australia, Fiji, Tonga and New Zealand in October.  :bored: maybe.
A source said: “Meghan and Harry have so much to look forward to it’s ­important they continue to enjoy life as a newly married couple and don’t let all the controversy get to them.  :bored: seems like it's gotten to her since, via sources, she's felt let down by KP as they're not dealing with her mess.
“They are rising above it and have the support of the entire family whatever happens.” ­Kensington Palace refused to discuss Meghan’s LA trip.
A spokesman said last night: “We do not comment on the personal travel plans of members of the Royal Family.”  :bored: as usual, as it's not the royal family's concern.

Philip seemed to be MIA regarding the Meg and Markle's nonsense until today, the day that reports in the press states that Meg is out of the UK, Philip makes his appearnce at church with the queen. Coinsidence, I hope so as it'll signify the end of this mess is now.
http://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/article-6075775/Prince-Philip-97-makes-surprise-appearance-Balmoral.html

I wonder if the documentary that'll air on the us network, this Wednesday where her spokesperson Mio Scobie claims to be a royal contributor, will be a fluff piece or will tell the issue of the pr games and how social media's a threat to the royal family just like the press was for diana. Meg outed her 'romance' with Harry on social media and kept it going on that platform to the extent that the press created articles from the content. Funny how she's upset with her dad talking to the press yest she gives insider info to Mio who then goes on Good Morning America tv show to blab as well a post things on his social media account of trips and engagements that KP didn't officially make public yet. Maybe she left the UK because he gig's up and the truth about what this whole mess has been about will come out this week. Maybe this whole nightmare is to show that the royal family doesn't need t be modernized to this gutter level extent but does need to face the reality of the age of social media and how harmful it can be to them and their image as seen very well with the Meg mess.

Meghan’s £200,000 wedding gown by Givenchy could go on display to the public at an exhibition at Windsor Castle later this year
The Royal Collection Trust, which manages the public openings of the Queen's official residences, told the Daily Express that any announcements would be made later this year.  
http://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/article-6078039/Meghan-Markles-200-000-wedding-gown-Givenchy-set-display-Windsor-Castle.html
No decision will be made until later this year, so why put the article out now? There’s no need to see this plain ill fitting gown and remind people of this fiasco and the money wasted on it. Of course the comments are scathing, so I expect only to see Eugenie’s dress on display if there is an exhibition.

The tumblr blogs are acting a bit weird in that they’re not putting up articles about Meghan unless it’s proven true. They won’t put up the article about her possibly being in Toronto, siting her safety which is bs. I think they’re careful that they don’t get shut down like other blogs have. Maybe this situation is causing those who use social media to think twice and not circulate gossip with no facts to back it up. That would make sense as it is a problem that got Meghan where she is now; the lies and exaggeration that was I used to get that statement issued in the first lace.

^true, it could be a fluff piece but it could also raise questions that the press could run with. We known that she’s been working with the press, Mio, and has been merchandising after being ‘married’ into the royal family as well as the lies that was told throughout the relationship especially during the engagement interview. Harry and the royal family’s image is in the toilet because of her being where she is and I for one, won’t be posting on this forum if she’s still around after the royals finish their holiday, so early September should be it. Why follow and care about Harry and the royal family if this nonsense is still going on. All the high security used to protect Harry, and the royals but someone of Meghan’s shady character is part of the royal family. Crazy.

^^ Stay to expose the truth.

^^ Poor things, they are still trying to see if Meghan will sell tickets to their castles.

^ I don't know if they are together or not. For newlyweds, for people who are supposed to be madly in love, in a whirlwind romance that ended in a gunshot wedding, they seem to spend awfully long time apart from each other and in separate continents, more than one ocean apart. With Kate - she quickly learned that McQueen is not going to be her go to designer if she wants to stay in the family. With Meghan - even if she tones down the spending, she still has her family, her exes, a whole train like this http://www.tpoty.com/tpoty_collection/gallery/postcard-collection/TPOTY-YKYeo-1.jpg with people she cut off in a disrespectful manner. People who can give interviews, can write books, can go to Big Brother, can write to CDAN. The hush money needed to placate all people with info on a darker past of the duchess will ultimately make Megsy a very high maintenance to keep.

What I'm saying is - both H & M come from dysfunctional families. That's why they "found" each other: they were both looking for something familiar, for a beautiful lie of a fairytale "rich and famous ever after". But, with Meghan and her trainload of baggage, the upkeep for the hush money will most probably be much, much more than a quick divorce or annulment (with no goodbye bling or bag of money unless she can come up with a way to produce a legit baby of hers and his ... the old-fashioned way).

Meghan Markle gives her first major 'sit down' interview since joining the Royal family for a high profile documentary series on the Queen
The Duchess of Sussex has given her first major ‘sit down’ interview since joining the Royal Family for a high profile documentary series on the Queen.
Queen of the World, to be broadcast on ITV next month, will offer a unique insight into Her Majesty role as a figure on the global stage and the baton she is passing to the younger members of the family as they continue her passion for the Commonwealth.
Filmed over more than a year by Oxford Films, the crew has been given privileged access to the Queen, her family, her staff and her residences, as they tell the story of how the Commonwealth has been a central focus and passion throughout her life.
Meghan, 37, has given a lengthy interview to the team, as has her husband, Prince Harry, who has been named by the monarch as Commonwealth Youth Ambassador and says he and Meghan will make the young people of the Commonwealth a priority of their public work.
Interviews have also been given by Prince Charles, Prince William, Princess Anne and the Countess of Wessex.
The programmes will also feature cine footage from the Queen and Duke of Edinburgh’s private film archives and treasures from the Royal Collection.
‘With the Duke and Duchess of Sussex about to embark on their first Commonwealth Tour to Australia, New Zealand and the Pacific exactly sixty-five years after the Queen’s first Commonwealth Tour, this series could not be more timely.’ Harry and Meghan will tour Australia, New Zealand, Fiji and Tonga in October.

This is an insult to the Commonwealth as the yunger lot doesn't rely care or copetant to deal with the complexities of the commonwealth. A lot of the commonwealth countries feel like 2nd class citizens having been shunned to the side in favor of the EU, and now the prime minister is looking to trade with Africa, so again, the commonwealth's put to the side. Notic Harry's not being interviewed for the program, only Meghan who knows nothing and will spin bs.

All it takes to be 'royal these days is trapping a member of the family. What a joke the Firm has become!

Well the royal family obviously likes meghan or they wouldn't have her giving an interview. but I guess it's good PR for the queen to show how she's accepted the biracial girl into the family being an American and all she must have this wonderful point of view now being part of the British royal family. Who knows? They just did a documentary on her 90th birthday they must be really pushing the queen for some reason. Maybe she's not going to last as long as we think.

I think HM has no idea how to handle Harry or William; I read in that book by Seward that her grandchildren were never as trained as their parents and I do view this as a huge reason the most recent generation is so messed up. All that energy, high spirits, and youth all left untrained and I do believe that Harry and William in particular should have had an exceptionally strict upbringing instead of being allowed to slack off. HM made a HUGE mistake in letting William get led astray and William never should have been allowed to be so idle.

BOT, Harry should have been even more strictly trained instead of being let go and allowed to be even more irresponsible. He NEVER should have been allowed to pass by university and get away with so much irresponsible clubbing and jet setting and turning the planet into his playground; as for his career in the military, he should have been MADE to do desk work and basically pay his dues like everyone else. He never had any business blowing so much money on booze and cheap women. It's inexcusable that he was not MADE to do a full program of duties and he should have been required to work at the Prince's Trust.

I think the new documentary is to focus on the Queen and her travelling the world, plus the Empire which morphed into the Commonwealth and has been such a part of the Queen's life. They will be showing home movies of the Queen and Philip's travels around the Commonwealth and the wider world. Charles, Sophie and William are also being interviewed. Harry will probably talk about his work as Youth Ambassador, and Meghan as part of that as she travels with him, also Meghan might talk about the view of the Queen in the US and in Canada where she lived for seven years.

You know, the BRF ignores the Commonwealth shamelessly; they should stop being so Edwardian and start spending more time in the Commonwealth countries. It used to be that high ranking Brits were stationed in various nations and only sent their children back to England to be educated. It is inexcusable that William and Kate have all the time in the world for Mustique, but no time for any of the Commonwealth nations. Harry had time for clubs in London, but no time for Australia.  I do believe that a lot of minor royals should be stationed in these countries and told to represent the Crown as much as possible and it might make things better. The minor royals might in fact be of more use than mooching around London.

@KF, she's a drinker and a smoker, so she's hardly the one to keep him out of clubs and away from booze or cheap women as she's one.  :tehe:
I thin either Mehgan's plain th race card is being used now to the royal family's advantage becuase if this article's true, and she has nothing but praise and glowing things to say about the royal family on a whole, there goes her using her race to attack the royal family when her and Harry inevitably are finished. I sometimes believe that she was deliberately put in Harry's path so she can be used as a patsy to change the face of the royal family to get poc's attention and interest in them and to see that thy're inclusive. She's got too uch baggage and is a narc so she's being played with all of the special treatment that'll leave her on high spirits for days. If this interview did take place, I think it would've been around the train rip with the queen as she was high with excitement at the specie privilege not given to Waity but to her.
@Rosella, she knows nothing about the subject and the queen's role in the commonwealth. Remember she claimed not to know much about Harry during the engagement interview and he's always in the news.

Of course the RF is going to use her skin color to appease the other brown skinned folks in the Commonwealth, which angers me because it insults people's intelligence. It'll backfire though because Meg hasn't been black since she was 10.  :laugh:

^ :tehe: Me too because it's ingenuous. I think that the royal family had to do this becuase of her being a troublemaker and using the race card frequently. It seems she did it before during her Suits days and was quick to sue people. One thing black people can't stand are women like Meg who cry racism but only lives on her white side and only deals with black people when necessary; in her case, to play the race card like she does when she wheels out her mum. Her social media accounts said a lot about what she's about as she only surrounded herself with white people and the few poc (people of colour) that were there were only pr friends or co-stars from Suits. She must *despise* Harry aking her to be around so many black and poc because you cn see how uncomfortable she seems around them.

^^^ I don't know how the BRF 'ignores the Commonwealth shamelessly' when the Queen has visited Commonwealth countries on tours and visits at least 186 times, many of these countries several times each, since 1952, mostly with Philip. Andrew spent part of his schooling in Canada, Edward worked as a housemaster in New Zealand for a while. Charles has visited 44 out of the 53 Commonwealth countries, some several times, with Diana and with Camilla. William has been to Australia at least three times, Canada on several occasions, India several times, New Zealand at least twice, Malta, Botswana, Kenya South Africa, Pacific territories. Harry has visited the West Indies, Botswana, Lesotho, New Zealand and Australia. Prince Philip has undertaken major visits, the Yorks and Andrew on his own, Anne, Edward as well, with Sophie. There's masses of experience about conditions from all over the Commonwealth within BRF ranks.

Knowing about conditions and having the political savvy to do something about them that is worthwhile are two very different things. No one in that royal family has the political savvy or intelligence to be the Head of the Commonwealth. Perhaps the queen has been good because of her strict upbringing and dedication from a young age to her role. Harry will not be able to do anything on a real level for the juniors of the Commonwealth and Meghan neither. There should be elections for this post with candidates from all the countries and not just dolling everything out to members of the family that marry inappropriate people to co rule or oversee nations' issues imo.

The Queen has been Head of the Commonwealth since 1952. No-one has ever opposed her in that position nor told her she lacks anything in the role. Indeed she's been praised many times by Commonwealth leaders. Harry's Ambassadorship was agreed to by the 53 nations within the Commonwealth before he was appointed. Also Charles was appointed ceremonial Head of the Commonwealth unopposed at the last CHOGM meeting (that is, the heads of the self governing nations voted on the question.)

Most of the countries are self-governing and the post doesn't need political savvy. However the Queen has bags of experience and has brought this to several CHOGMs where there have been crises and she has brokered a solution.

Harry should have been even more strictly trained instead of being let go and allowed to be even more irresponsible. He NEVER should have been allowed to pass by university

He wasn't 'allowed to by-pass university' He didn't get good enough grades to get in. He earned a B in Art and a D in Geography. No UK university would accept someone with those grades. They are even worse than Charles' and there were many criticisms that Charles was able to go to Cambridge with his grades (B in History and C in French). Edward managed two Ds and a C and again there was a lot of criticism of him being allowed to push his way into university based on who he was rather than his marks. Those days are over - academic merit is needed. That is why William went to St Andrews and not Oxbridge - he didn't have good enough grades for either Oxford of Cambridge but did have the grades for St Andrews.

Quote
he should have been MADE to do desk work

Not everyone is suited to desk work. Why force him to do something he would *despise* rather the allow him to develop his own interests and charities e.g. Invictus and Sentabele?

Quote
It's inexcusable that he was not MADE to do a full program of duties

Who would have had to retire though to allow him to do more? There is a financial limit on official expenses and the princes have to be fitted into that budget - especially transport which comes from the Sovereign Grant - once the annual budget is used then no more engagements and then hear the cries when an event that takes place every year has to be cancelled because they have used all their budget. What they have been doing very carefully is phasing out the Duke of Kent, Princess Alexandra and the Duchess of Gloucester, along with Prince Philip, while the younger royals are picking up their numbers to keep the total steady at around 4000 for the year for the family.

and he should have been required to work at the Prince's Trust.

Again why? Why make him, or William, work for an organisation they don’t want to do and have no interest in. They claim they admire their father’s work but have made it clear on a number of occasions that they have different interests and will not be taking on any part of the Prince’s Trust.

The BRF set out a plan on how to include the princes in the working structure of the family so that everyone who was already working for them would be able to continue to do so while the new ones were brought along. The Duke of Kent, for instance used to do the Dawn Service for ANZAC Day but Harry did that this year – a passing of the baton – carefully planned like that.

Handing over the patronages is also part of that and is carefully planned.

Quote
You know, the BRF ignores the Commonwealth shamelessly; they should stop being so Edwardian and start spending more time in the Commonwealth countries. It used to be that high ranking Brits were stationed in various nations and only sent their children back to England to be educated. It is inexcusable that William and Kate have all the time in the world for Mustique, but no time for any of the Commonwealth nations. Harry had time for clubs in London, but no time for Australia.  I do believe that a lot of minor royals should be stationed in these countries and told to represent the Crown as much as possible and it might make things better. The minor royals might in fact be of more use than mooching around London.

The BRF do NOT ignore the Commonwealth at all. So far this year alone visits to the following Commonwealth Countries have taken place:

Australia (HRH The Prince of Wales, HRH The Duchess of Cornwall and HRH The Earl of Wessex)
Botswana (HRH Prince Henry of Wales/HRH Duke of Sussex)
Canada (HRH The Princess Royal)
Cyprus (HRH The Duke of Kent)
India (HRH The Earl of Wessex)
Lesotho (HRH The Duke of Sussex)
Malawi (HRH The Duke of Gloucester)
Malta (HRH The Countess of Wessex)
Singapore (HRH The Duke of York)
South Africa (HRH Prince Henry of Wales and HRH The Duke of Gloucester)
Sri Lanka (TRH The Earl and Countess of Wessex - for the 70th anniversary of their Independence)
Vanuatu (HRH The Prince of Wales)

Before the end of the year Australia, New Zealand, Fiji and Tonga at least will be visited by the Duke and Duchess of Sussex. It is normal for most of the members of the family to undertake a tour in October/November although not all are to Commonwealth countries.

Even if no more Commonwealth countries are visited this year other than those to be visited by Harry and Meghan the BRF will have visited 15 of the 53 non-UK nations or 28% of them.

The idea that a member of the BRF would be permanently posted to a Commonwealth country assumes that the BRF and/or Britain itself still 'rules' these commonwealth countries. Australia most certainly wouldn't accept such a situation and I imagine that the other countries would feel the same. Australia is proud to welcome the royals here and will make them feel welcome. We wouldn't want them to live here however - and certainly not to represent the Queen by doing so. That job belongs to the GG and the GG must be an Australian now (same thing in the other countries).

The idea that 'high ranking Brits were stationed in various nations' was true - in the days of the Empire but those days have long gone. The empire ended and turned into the Commonwealth - a free grouping of nations which don't even have to have had connections to Britain during the colonial period.

Princess Margaret had a home on Mustique so no reason why her great-nephew can't take his holidays there. If it was good enough for the Queen's sister it is fine for her grandson.

Harry spent part of his gap year in Australia working as a jackeroo on an outback station - hardly 'ignoring' Australia. He also spent time here during his time in the army and has been here to help us celebrate the 100th anniversary of our navy and went to Gallipoli with his father for the 100 anniversary of the Gallipoli landings. Beatrice also came to Australia for part of her gap year (and she has been here this year as well for a couple of charity related functions but not official engagements).

I think had more attention been paid to Harry he would have gone to Uni. Diana probably would have seen to it and perhaps found that Harry did have dyslexia (something he is rumored to have).  William was not exactly a rocket scientist picking up art history as his first major then geography. He should have studied political science or economics. I think the royals no Einsteins.

@Rosella you proved my point exactly. the queen had to broker delicate situations because she had experience and the personal constitution to do it. There's no way anyone else in that family has that ability especially not Charles or either of his sons. I think many things are fixed by Britain and I think making Charles the next head and forcing Harry on everybody is part for the course. There is no way a qualified candidate is going to be let near the public so that person can take the position away from Charles qualified or not and there is no way that man is qualified. my God this person doesn't even put toothpaste on his toothbrush and aspires to be Camilla's tampon. I have been involved in the legal system in Britain as an advisor lawyer and I found that legal system to be very corrupt when it comes to the aristocracy or the royal family being involved in anything. They control far more than you realize when it comes to their property and position. now I have never like Megan however I do think she is more qualified than Harry or William to be representing the Commonwealth ironically. She is smarter than both of them put together. Unfortunately she is dishonest and self-interest which does not make a good leader in any way for nations.

This is definetly the case now as he was shning bright during the IG that were held in the US and then Meghan happened and now he's in the sewer.
Nothing but confusion regarding her.

With Brexit UK will soon have to craft a place for themselves in world politics. They can no longer be the populist critics of EU while benefitting from the one market. That's why QE and the government try to push the 'we are one happy commonwealth alliance family'
 That's why I think that they are pushing the queen. PC is not universally beloved. PH is no longer considered as with brain between his ears inspiring, nice, liked good for PR spins royal. Kate is conveniently missing from major announcements as the MO discussion is voiced more and more by the taxpayers. As for M - giving her the centerstage to praise her acceptance to the family will be a nice touch in a 'booted out without a bag of money for goodbye' scenario.

I am not sure if the Head of the Commonwealth of 53 Nations has to be a British citizen. It doesn't seem fair considering all the nations are sovereign and most only have the queen as a symbolic head. They're more like a Confederacy which is a pack of Nations that has similar goals and ideals and want to help each other in implementing  fair ways to govern. So I don't know why the British have to control that. When you think about it the British are not in  that good shape themselves. however I do believe that the queen wants Charles to be put as head with Harry helping or whoever helping because if he is not trusted to be head of the Commonwealth then he is not going to be trusted to be the monarch. and that will be the beginning of the end so she is going to push for him to succeed her and all things to keep the monarchy in place.

Meghan Markle Returns to TV for New Queen Elizabeth Documentary — and She's Talking Royal Wedding!
Meghan, 37, is featured along with husband Prince Harry, 33, and other members of the royal family in a film about Queen Elizabeth and the Commonwealth – the family of nations linked to the U.K.
Meghan takes part in “a conversation, a stand-up chat” for the film, Queen of the World, which airs over two parts on ITV next month, a palace source says.
Two members of the royal family, Sophie, Countess of Wessex, and the Queen’s daughter Princess Anne have given formal “sit down” interviews, a royal source adds. Meghan, Harry, Prince Charles and Prince William all appear as the show promises to feature “behind-the-scenes moments with the Sovereign and other members of the Royal Family,” a statement from ITV says.
While ITV has not confirmed the details of Meghan’s role in the film, ITV News’ royal correspondent Chris Ship says she is set to discuss her wedding dress and her early interactions with the Commonwealth. Meghan’s wedding veil celebrated the Commonwealth by having the flowers of each of the 53 countries embroidered on it.
Nicolas Kent, Creative Director for Oxford Films and Executive Producer for Queen of the World, said: “The Queen is the most well-travelled monarch in history and it’s been fascinating to see how she has passed on her experience to the younger generations of the royal family.  With the Duke and Duchess of Sussex about to embark on their first Commonwealth Tour to Australia, New Zealand and the Pacific exactly sixty-five years after the Queen’s first Commonwealth Tour, this series could not be more timely.”
There is also a book, by writer and producer Robert Hardman, being published around the same time.
https://people.com/royals/meghan-markle-queen-elizabeth-documentary/
So she only has a small role in it and Sophie and Ann are the featured speakers whch makes more sense.
The tour will be interesting in that if she goes, she's gotten help from the government with her visa and possible tax issues. What should happen is that the tour gets cancelled due to her visa issues and people would understand because there are commonwealth born people who've been deported out of the UK due to visa issues.

Duchess of Sussex Meghan flies commercial on a secret solo trip to Toronto to visit her stylist best friend and kids (and she advised her on THAT mini-dress she wore to Hamilton performance)
The Duchess of Sussex has reportedly made a secret solo trip to Toronto - ditching her royal ways and flying commercial.
Meghan flew Air Canada last week for a three-day trip to visit best friend and stylist Jessica Mulroney, sources confirmed to ABCNews.
The pair met while the former actress was living in Toronto filming Suits and have remained closed friends ever since - so close that Mulroney's three young children were in Aunt Meg's royal wedding to Prince Harry in May.
Kensington Palace reportedly sent a letter to Air Canada staff ahead of the trip asking that no one take the Duchess's picture or approach her on the flight.
The three-day trip was Meghan's first time traveling internationally alone since marrying Prince Harry in a lavish royal wedding in May.
'Meghan spent three days holed up at Jessica Mulroney and her husband Ben's home in Toronto,' according to Omid Scobie, ABC News royal contributor.
'They spent their days catching up, cooking together and, of course, playing with Jessica's children, who love their ''Auntie Meg''', he said.
The ladies allegedly had an undercover night on the town to visit some old friends.
'There was one evening when Meghan and Jessica secretly headed out into the town to meet some of Meghan's old, good friends,' Scobie said.
Jessica posted snaps to Instagram during Meghan's trip but did not include the Duchess in her photos.
One image showed Jessica in all white, posing with her three children in front of their home with the caption: 'Another day, another jumpsuit. That Brian face though.'
Perhaps the Duchess was even the one snapping the photo.
Jessica and husband Ben's twin sons Brian and John, seven, served as the page boys holding Meghan's train she walked up the steps to marry her prince.
Daughter Ivy was a bridesmaid along with Princess Charlotte, while Jessica and Ben sat front row for the 'wedding of the century'.
After her solo trip, the Duchess returned to Prince Harry in London to attend a charity show of the hit musical Hamilton.
http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-6116677/Duchess-Sussex-Meghan-flies-commercial-secret-solo-trip-Toronto.html
Why the conflicting articles placing her all over the place? As usual, she's cooperating with the press, Mio, who confirmd this to American tv show.  ???  Why the games? KP issuing a letter for no passengers to take pictures, with, when actual royals like Wills and Harry have their pictures taken whilst on planes and trains.

Meghan Markle se recusa a receber bonificação monetária da realeza

Meghan Markle não quer pagar impostos aos Estados Unidos. Confira no OFuxico!

According to a Brazilian gossip site MEGHAN MARKLE refuses to receive royal royalty, but is wrong to think that this is a sign of financial disregard on her part.

The site says, “Apparently, the former Suits series actress decided not to be rewarded so as not to have to pay the US Treasury the corresponding taxes. This is because, even though she lives outside the United States, Markle would have to pay taxes to her country if she receives more than $ 104,100 in Britain, and this could cause some conflict with royalty. But things are not so bad for Meghan, since her husband, the Prince Harry, is the one who takes responsibility for all his expenses. Also, according to the magazine Grazia, there is an account, which is not in the name of Markle, but that the Duchess will have access as soon as she is five years living outside of the United States, when you will no longer have to pay taxes to your country.
Have any of you ever read this kind of information before? I do not.

Not sure what happens when a US born resident goes to live abroad.  I did read a few years ago that they had to continue to pay a certain amount of tax, but whether for a limited time or forever I have no idea.  If murky has access to some other money I don´t know what would happen, maybe one of our US members would know.  The only reason I can see why she might get away with getting money and not paying taxes is if the IRS allow it because she has married in to the British rf.  Other than that she would have to start another scam to keep the money secret, if she could indeed keep it secret.  She will use every trick in the book to get money. She had better be careful, the US is not the UK, and they may well find out what she is up to, if she is up to anything.  Let her sink, hope she does a scam and the IRS find out.  She is one of the most unattractive (inside and out) females around as far as I am concerned, she deserves anything bad that might go her way.  She really is an awful, vile person IMO  -  I want to vomit every time I see a photo of her.  She never looks properly clean, her clothes are too tight, she dresses like a "lady of the night", her shoes too big, she looks like a bag lady (tramp on the streets" and no mistake is my opinion of her.  She wants to push in front everywhere, totally ignore protocol of any kind, and as for haza, more fool him to let her go ahead of him, do the talking and etc.  He looks like a pretty henpecked man, and he deserves it getting shacked up to that tramp.

The IRS would be respectful but insistent.  They are impossibly rigid and verrrry savvy so if she owes money, she, or somebody else, will have to pay.  And she will owe money to the US gov as long as she continues to make money in the States.  That, I would guess, is from any residuals from Suits now that it’s syndicated on Amazon and any dime from her clothing line, merching, etc. 

The IRS knows everything. Especially people who are so highly visible.

Meghan is crowned Tatler's Girl of the Year: Duchess follows in the footsteps of Pippa Middleton and Harry's ex Cressida Bonas to be awarded magazine's annual accolade  
Tatler says that the most recent Girl of the Year is certainly a step away than previous successors.
Tatler's Rebecca Thorpe writes: 'A departure from some of the Girls who come earlier on the list – who are variously toffs, mischief-makers and social media mavens, Meghan Markle is none of the above, although she is nonetheless worthy of the accolade.'
Writer David Jenkins comments in the issue, which is released on September 3, she also has ‘that indefinable, unmissable quality that makes [her] the one for whom heads turn' adding 'everyone – but everyone – is desperate to be, right here, right now, and forever.’  ???
The newly-minted royal has proved popular with the magazine having made it's best dressed list just a month earlier.
The publication said of the Duchess: 'Prince Harry's Californian bride blew us away with her Givenchy wedding dress and has redefined modern royal style with every subsequent appearance.'
http://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/article-6117639/Meghan-crowned-Tatlers-Girl-Year-2018.html
It’s a backhanded award and quite sarcastic.
What’s good about Meghan being a vapid narcissist is that she’s believing her own hype and is getting bold and pushing ahead with doing her own thing like wearing that trashy getup to the Hamilton play that was a benefit for a kids charity; Sentable. She thinks that she’s the star draw and Harry’s her assistant. Keep this up because she’s hanging herself and without realizing that she’s letting people know that she’s getting no help from the palace otherwise she wouldn’t continue to get her looks and how she conducts herself during engagements wrong.

US citizens have to pay taxes for ever. That's why many people who have US citizenship but don't live there, haven't in a long time and won't in the future renounce US citizenship. Other countries only insist on their citizens paying taxes when the citizens live and/ or make profit in their (home)country, the US is a bit unique in collecting taxes from its citizens ever year, regardless of living place/ arrangements and where earnings are made.

Boris Johnson is one example, he was born in the US and therefore was an instant citizen and renounced citizenship a few years ago because the IRS wanted to collect even though he hasn't lived in the US since childhood and has no ventures in the US. The official line was he wanted to "prove his loyalty to the UK", but in reality he didn't want to pay taxes in the US anymore, which is fair enough and should suffice as reason, but well I guess the PR line of "loyalty to the UK" is a better spin for a UK politician...

On board with Meghan: Duchess watched a Diane Keaton film as she drank champagne and peppermint tea while flying to Toronto to visit best friend Jessica Mulroney
And now it's emerged that the Duchess of Sussex, 37, has got her in-flight entertainment routine down to a tee - enjoying Diane Keaton film Book Club as she enjoyed a glass of champagne.
The royal was said to be dressed casually in a black jumper, jeans and flats for the long-haul flight, teamed with a baseball cap.  ??? same outfit as her secret trip to Chicago
She was also reported to drink peppermint tea as she flew to Toronto with Air Canada, accompanied by two bodyguards.  
A source told Royal Central: 'Meghan was lovely. She had two secret service guys with her, but it was all very low key.
'Meghan had one glass of champagne before settling down to watch Book Club. She seemed very relaxed and sipped on peppermint tea during the journey.'
It comes after it was reported that Meghan had flown to Toronto for a three-day trip last week to visit best friend and stylist Jessica Mulroney.
Kensington Palace reportedly sent a letter to Air Canada staff ahead of the trip asking that no one take the Duchess's picture or approach her on the flight
Scobie added: 'There was one evening when Meghan and Jessica secretly headed out into the town to meet some of Meghan's old, good friends.'  :tehe:  She doesn't have friends.

Spengler, New Orleans, 31 minutes ago
She drank champagne and peppermint tea but flew coach? I fly all three classes frequently and can say with some authority these items are not available in coach. Perhaps Meghan brought her own larder? Or was she treated more specially than other paying passengers because of who she¿s married to? Her PR pros are clueless if they think this info helps her.

I'm also not aware of any memorial this year for Diana and doubt there was one, last year was the big anniversary & things took place, not this year..

Sending that letter in advance though, really poor taste.

She may have booked economy, but she'd have been upgraded by the airline to 1st class. It's what Margaret did to fly cheap: booked cheapest and was always upgraded to best.

The champagne's a giveaway that, if she was really flying, she didn't go coach.  No way.  And they wouldn't let even her pop a cork before takeoff on a commercial jet, so...

I think it's all a big bunch of baloney and she maybe maybe flew under the radar to NY, but took a private jet on to Toronto. Otherwise, why sell the humble passenger fable?  Just say nothing.  But, nooooo.

Meghan Markle's university uses her photo to attract new students

The US university where a young Meghan Markle studied theatre is using the now Duchess of Sussex's photo to attract new generations of students.

Meghan's photograph appears at the top of a list of illustrious alumni in Northwestern University's new recruiting catalogue, which describes her as a 'humanitarian and the Duchess of Sussex' - prompting some fans to question why her time as an actress had apparently been ignored.

The 37-year-old royal, who graduated from the Illinois-based college's school of communication in 2003 with a bachelor's degree and a double major in theatre and international studies, features alongside fellow high profile former students including the female chairman of IBM, Virginia Rometty, and the comedian Seth Meyers.

The text reads: 'You can do anything when you take a Northwestern Direction. They did.'

A snap said to be taken from the prospectus was shared by a royal fan account on Instagram on Sunday

You know, the university is still in the 90's, when it was abundantly clear that a marriage to a prince was a cool thing to accomplish. I do know that this is just another round of propaganda and not one I would brag about considering her personal life.

I don't know that I blame Northwestern for doing that. They're not that great a school certainly not as pedtitious sounding as USC, UCLA, Stanford Harvard and a host of other Ivy League schools and others that have many famous important people as their alumnae. I wonder if Immaculate Heart is doing the same thing they will never be as good as Marlborough School for Girls in L. A. And Marlborough would never stoop so low as to do something like that nor do they need to as they are a greatly sought-after school. Northwestern is a good school but it's not what I think people are clamoring to get into. So why shouldn't they advertise Megan as an alumni.  Apologize in advance if I have offended any NW alumnae.

I do dislike the message that despite not USING her degree in any substantial way, that instead of building either a great career in diplomacy or establishing a genuinely substantial career in acting or some kind of executive career in entertainment, she chose to go the climber's route and really threw her education away.

There is no reason for Northwestern to be proud to be associated with her.

Part of me believes there was a huge donation made to the school to cover up whatever discrepancies there are with what degree she earned or if she earned one at all. I went to undergrad at a very well known Chicago institution and I have never seen NW do this kind of tap dancing behind an "alumna." NW is a dang good school, is not easy to get into, and can boast about way more impressive graduates than MeAgain.

This is the worst idea they could have.

First, a school is a school and just because someone made it big, does not mean that all the other graduates of that university are and that the school itself is directly responsible.

Second, marrying prince Harry or any other prince isn't something to brag about when you look at the sorry collection of royals that currently consist of the royal families of Europe; there is a reason these princes aren't married to aristos and other royals and I think it is because of their less than stellar personality traits. There is a reason perhaps that only shady women would want to marry these men, of that I am certain.

Third, Meg really didn't distinguish herself there and I am certain that she didn't distinguish herself in terms of a career.

The biggest mistake universities are making these days is trying to compete for press coverage and trying to be as famous as possible. Harvard used to distinguish itself by the quality of their graduates and now Harvard is kind of a joke mainly since Harvard is now not really famous for academic exclusivity.

I do believe that it's a new sign of how universities have declined since this place won't increase in value given Meg's reputation.

The tumblr blogs, especially Jersey D are correct in saying stick to the present and don’t call her names because it won’t  change what’s going on now. The rules for tumblr are changing on 10 September where blogs can be shut down without warning. I could be wrong but since the wedding, blogs have been shut down and people are more careful at what they say. That’s a good thing and it’s part of the cyber bullying that’s relevant now.
Now he same strict rules should be applied to Meghan gaslighting Harry and the royal family. The press is enjoying the massive amounts of hits each article with her in the headlines receive. The press has to eventually spill the beans about her because they’ll have the proof. Actually with articles like the uni using her name gets the truth out about her in the comments. This sick show can’t continue in this manner because nothing’s getting done by Harry and his charity work.

Will try and look for it later on the murky thread.  She can say she went there, but no graduation.

If you look at this link, go down towards the bottom, some interchange between YM and HRHOlya, and again on the following page.  Seems she was an alumi but never made it to graduation, it is explained on these posts.

The future of the royal family? Pioneering software reveals what Kate, Harry and Meghan and other stars might look like in their 60s 
'This process has already started with Kate and she could also suffer from lifestyle choices such as her decision to smoke which can considerably speed up the ageing process. The years ahead may take a great toll on celebrities such as Kate Moss who is expected to pay the price for years of partying in her 20s and 30s and her smoking habit.
'Meghan Markle comes out best from the Future Face algorithm. Her genes, olive complexion and terrific lifestyle choices suggest she will age the best of the well-known people we tested. There is every chance that she will look a few years younger than the Duchess of Cambridge in 25 years even though Meghan is a year older.'
'Like Meghan, the Duchess is ageing beautifully but she may look just a few years older than Prince Harry's bride at 61 due to the differences in skin colour.'

Same with Murky, they just add a wrinkle or two were they are likely to appear add some grey hair and call it a look into the future... I could do the same with photoshop, any of us could :wopedo:

Life before the palace: Adorable unearthed snap of a make-up free Meghan captures her snuggling up to watch TV with the goddaughter who would go on to be her royal flower girl
Now among the most photographed women in the world, the Duchess of Sussex is never snapped looking anything less than immaculately coiffed.  :tehe:
Unearthed by a royal fan and shared on Instagram, the candid snap captures a make-up free Meghan snuggling in bed to watch TV with one of her 'fairy goddaughters', apparently blissfully happy in pyjamas and with her hair in a tousled top knot.
The then actress spent Christmas 2016 with the Litt family, and shared a snap of them gathered in front of the tree on her now defunct Instagram account in which she called Rylan and Remi her 'fairy goddaughters'.

+1. Calling her an alumni is a disgraceful misuse of the word because in Europe you become alumni only if and after you graduate. She did nnot. Of that I'm 1000% sure.

She’s not even close to cuddling that sweet child.  Not only that but her body language is only focused on the camera.  Goodness they must think we are all totally stupid.

Looking at the 'age' of the girl, it seems pretty recent and staged. What's more important is that there's zero interaction with the girl, zero. If Megsy somehow pass a child as Harry's she'll never end up with custody of the child. Not only the commoners are not stupid but the family courts too.

I did a search on Biography Reference Bank (an official biographical source) and it does say she has the degree from Northwestern University. This is what it says:

"Rachel Meghan Markle was born on August 4, 1981, in Los Angeles, California. Her mother is a social worker and yoga instructor, while her father, now living in Mexico, is an Emmy Award–winning lighting director who worked on the show Married . . . with Children when Markle was young. Her mother, who is black, and her father, who is white, divorced when Markle was six. Markle grew up in Hollywood, where she attended Immaculate Heart High School before attending Northwestern University outside of Chicago. Earning a bachelor’s degree with a dual major in theater and international studies, Markle pursued a career as an actor, making some money on the side as a calligrapher. In 2011, Markle married actor and producer Trevor Engelson, but the marriage was short-lived and the couple divorced in 2013. She reportedly first started seeing Prince Harry, the fifth in line to the British throne, in June 2016. The couple announced their engagement the following year."

This is a long established accurate reference source.

Nothing I have read has told me that she has a degree, and now the NWU thing now appears to have been tampered with, and thankfully now corrected.  Even the wording does not sit well, all a bit twee for me.  I personally would need to see a copy, direct from NWU, a legitimate and signed copy of the degree, with a first class lawyer in attendance to witness its legitimate existence, before I would believe she had one. There have been too many lies, too many fake photos, too many articles which appear to be written by her or one of her low class pals, to believe anything without legal proof these days.  She has told far too many lies for anyone to believe her, she seems to get into sites and tweak them to suit her.  Or gets someone to do it for her.  I find it is easy to tell by the wording as to whether it is the truth about murky, or not as the case may be.  I find that tit bit from the biography smacks of murky having a hand in it  -  maybe they ask people to write it for themselves, because it really does look like a murky job to me.  I personally will only be convinced,if I was told, from them, with evidence, that the biography is 100% legitimate.  Anything can be altered these days if you have the money/power to do it, and she sure seems to have the power for many things these days.  Who in their right mind would have played around with that NWU brochure.  I personally feel the same about the Biography Reference Bank.  Until I had firm true and legal confirmation that these things are true then I am not buying into them.  Probably have the bio bit known as a scam soon.  The wording just sits wrong with me, quite amateur and why grew up here, went there, doesn´t make sense to me.

The above is my personal opinion, and mine alone, and I will stick with it until I get 100% confirmation that I am wrong.  That is the trouble with liars and scammers, even if they tell the truth nobody believes it.  And that is how I view the tart of the year, she will stoop as low as she can, lie and scam, to get what she wants.  Dork haza has to be ready to be committed for marrying her, he must be so thick and stupid not to see right through her, right from the beginning.  Interesting millions have seen through her, here in UK and US, and yet one stupid dolt doesn´t see it.  He really must have half a brain cell to be fooled by her, she really is a nasty piece of work, words to describe the true murky fail me, can´t think of any strong enough to use about her.

Yes, alumnus means a person that has attended a particular college. Different schools define the attendance criterion in different ways, some by the amount of coursework and others by the number of completed semesters or quarters. But you certainly do not need a degree from a school to be considered an alumnus.

You have both Seth Meyers and Stephen Colbert on that list - people of actual substance and accomplishment in life. Her name standing next to people who deserve to be there cheapens the whole list. And what is her claim to fame ...  :shy: bedsheets.

It’s all very weird to me because I had someone call the alumni office at NW waaaay back when and she was not a graduate.  Attended?  Yes.  Declared a major?  Yes.  But, no degree.

So, whatever.  Somehow, I believe the Truth is all a bit muddy now. What I do know, is that if she did have a degree she would have shouted it from the rooftops, which she hasn’t and also would have put it on applications in Hollywood.  She did not.  It says, “attended”.  I checked on that one myself.

Humble she does not ‘do’, bending her history, she does.  But, in fairness, all actors do.

^I agree with this because she would’ve proved that she had her degree. She could’ve failed a class but allowed to make it up the next semester but was added to the graduation list prior to the grades being finalized. She never went back to complete the credits, hence no degree.
Yooper, wouldn’t her statistics be on the back of her headshot when she’s going for auditions? I’ve posted that she put her ethnicity as white and that would sort of backup what she said about casting directors thinking that she’s Latina and such. I just find it odd that she’s now claiming to be black/bi-racial but this issue of her selling herself as white hasn’t been brought up.

There is no doubt in my mind that if she was a graduate, she’d have made a very big deal out if it and had a million photos of her graduation.  There aren’t and logic seems to be that she didn’t fulfill all qualifications at the time.  Maybe, in the last year or so, that has been tidied up.  All I know is what I see and don’t see.  And she, who is in the business of selling herself, has been uncharacteristically mum on details with this.

She was not 'famous' when she got the degree. Someone in the limelight studying would get coverage of the graduation. But there have been some actors and actresses and noted people who were "famous" but still had a low key graduation. It all depends. I don't see any reason why she has to 'prove' she graduated with photographs. The diploma is the proof and even then graduates don't have to produce diplomas to apply for jobs--they send year of graduation on a resume and it is up to the prospective employer to check and generally the transcript is examined to see the grades.. Some references may indeed be a faculty member or adviser at the school. If she had no degree the royals would not ever have put on their official website that she did get the degree. They would say she studied at NOrthwestern.And I was curious so I went to established reference sources who don't go in for making things up and both said she did get the degree. And it is not really rare or "outstanding" in these days for people to get University degrees. It's more the rule than the exception. The royals are noted for vetting people who get into that family and are not sloppy in their research.

The royals are not sloppy about research, but they are sloppy about being able to control their heirs. Harry and William were not trained or drilled or raised in any way that they should have been. If they had not been so indulged, they NEVER would have ended up with these women as consorts. Neither prince was raised to use their brains and they were not raised out of the phase of their lives where they could get away with being doltish. Neither was forced to grow up and neither was forced to do a certain amount of work. William was allowed to skip out on receptions, banquets, and investitures and he still does anything required with the utmost reluctance. I do believe that each prince would never have bothered marrying either Kate or Meg since they would be much different men instead of the idiots they are now.

You know, that story about her not being sure which box to tick is a sign of her sense of overdone drama. Why make such an issue out of it since after all, it's not like she was growing up in the 1950's or even the sixties 60's. The eighties were not that intolerant and she has never expeirenced GENUINE racism in the way other women who came before her did.

A large percentage of people get degrees it's not so rare anymore. I can hardly consider Meghan "intellectual." SOmeone who studies rocket science or astrophysics or medicine would be an intellectual and contribute something to civilization.

Harry should have gone to Uni and gotten tutors if necessary. IT would have given him more structure.  Both should have been required to do internships (meaningful ones) and take an interest in their father's causes and the DUchy management.

I bet you anything that if both princes had been required to do REAL work and appearances on behalf of the Prince's Trust, they would be much different and much better men today. Pity that they have no initiative to just do their appearances and make things easier on their family.

The only way for this to be real is that she was used/eventually hired to play this role for the following reasons discussed such as a distraction for the press, play the race card back on Meghan and use her to play the inclusion, diversity and a modern monarchy that's not out of touch and stuffy, etc, whilst also really giving Harry his dukedom title whilst the queen was still living.
NBC might be backing her and I feel that the Canadian and UK government to simply because of her being a trouble maker that needed to be shut down via this faux marriage where she expects a handout to sign NDA, imo, and to playout appeasing the pc crowd.

https://news.northwestern.edu/stories/2017/november/from-wildcat-to-royalty/

This article from NW university was published before Meghan married Harry. It refers to Meghan as a graduate of NW University and her majors. The author, Kristin Samuelson, is or was at that time anyway, employed at NW as a Media Relations writer for the university.

 If you link Kristin's name under the headline it gives an email address for @NorthWestern. The article also includes congratulations to the couple from the head of the alumni Association. If that headline went on any article from the university itself, referring to someone graduating who didn't, it would have been immediately corrected.

Alumna does not necessarily mean graduate.  In fact, it is more likely that the alum assoc would have used the word “graduate” in the letter to a graduate.  Especially one that would be published.  That’s how it works in any US alumni association.

My sons, who do have degrees, get letters whenever sonething momentous happens and they always refer to them as “distinguished graduate” and never the generic “alumna/alumni”.  I, who began my education at the UofM but finished my degree elsewhere always refers to me as an alumna. 

It’s protocol.

You know, I wonder why all the lies in the first place, the truth always comes out. There is no way that Meg would be able to hide the reality of her past and it's not like there is any reason. She was just a garden variety low level actress who did the same things that all actresses at her level do to get along in life. Men (I won't post the details), connections, and hype. Nothing major, just no different from a modern day chorus girl. Being a briefcase girl is the modern equivalent of being a chorus girl in a club, dancing behind the main lead singer. I do believe that Meg is in fact trying to outrun a past loaded with regrets and I am certain that she's having problems dealing with her issues that her actions have surely caused emotional and psychological issues.

If her role as a "Soho Girl" is what we think it is, no one does that to themselves without experiencing issues as a result. There is no way that she walked away from that life without carrying some kind of scarring emotionally and psychologically. Second, no one gets to be a briefcase girl without doing something with the casting director or producer of that show. She has shown more than enough skin and I am certain that she's unable to handle the change of her life. The courtiers know all the gory details and while Harry doesn't care, I am sure he will after a while. No man can handle their wife being known by too many men and with photos all over the planet.

Yes, but the author of that article, who works for the University itself, not a newspaper, would surely not have directly and specifically referred to Meghan as a graduate (or put in her majors) in the article if she had not actually graduated from the University. She would have had any information at her fingertips regarding Meghan as a student and any attempt to paint someone as a graduate who wasn't one  would have come back to bite her.

It's often been asserted here that Meghan left NW after her freshman year. Yet biographers and journalists have direct quotes from her Professor in Theatre Studies, who remembered her well, and spoke about discussions he'd had with her in her later time as an undergraduate.

Before their wedding, the alumni office said she was not a graduate.  Perhaps she is now.  The letter from the alumni office is the real authority, not the unit media rep, and I'm sorry but it's not worded properly to an actual graduate.  Frankly, I don't believe one thing that comes out about her as being gospel.  There has been far too much effort on her part to whitewash her past.

All these years and she never once broadcasted or listed her degree when all she has done is sell herself as a big deal here and there?  I don't happen to buy it.  It's one blurred issue after another for me and the incessant push to uncover the truth or defend her each time something comes out is ridiculous.

^^No.  The truth will absolutely come out.  Probably after the BRF is as weary of her drama as those paying attention.  She has the most confusing, sketchy background that no amount of ignoring will solve.  Her behavior with every single human being throughout her adult (and child) life has been dismal at best, cruel at worst.

Andrew’s the one that has connections to Soho House according to Felix blog and I’ve read a rumours that he wanted to marry his mistress. With all of the weird stuff that happened since she came onto the scene to now, it’s not far fetched to believe that she was Andrew’s mistress or at least they hooked up one time and she has pictures. She might’ve been with Harry a few time just for sex too as well as politicians and god knows who else.  :nervous: She must’ve given up the pictures and might’ve gotten some kind of deal but not her visa or tax stuff which the royal family can’t intervene. Odd how now Eugenie and Jack are getting married now when they could’ve done it years ago or next year. Now Andrew’s reset as a family man and father of the bride and no hint of scandal around him as Harry took the fall in ‘marrying’ her. Her coat of arms is the key to her future in her current position.
Can’t the uni just say what year she received her degree when asked? It’s a simple answer and wouldn’t be breaching privacy.
I agree Yooper. The truth will come out. I think the royal family has gotten what they needed from her and should be casting her off now. Enough is enough with her and her now. Time for her visa/tax and embezzling Charles to come out.

I know many people who work at Universities. And students have to have that diploma before they can be classified as Alumni. Alumni have borrowing privileges  from the Library with an Alumni Card  and are on a list of Alumni of the University (and they receive correspondence which those who did not complete the program would never get) which is only issued to students that have completed their degree program not to those who have not. This is a firm policy. I doubt Northwestern would risk it's reputation by "pretending" Markle graduated. They would lose credibility. Rules apply firmly to Universities and its not some correspondence course. They would not pretend Markle is an alumna if she did not graduate. A student can't fake a degree because the University has official transcripts and it would be caught very quickly. This is not loosy goosey stuff at universities. If it were students could fake having a degree.

Also let's just say she was not a graduate technically a few monts ago--the courses can be completed at a later time to fulfill requirements or a thesis could be written and handed in. No way would they allow her to be classified as an alumna without the degree.

I tracked the Northwestern articles in their magazine and she's called an alumni. Students can try to get that alumni card till the cows come home but if they don't have a copy of the diploma they do not get this privilege.

People who work at Universities know the score and they would not call someone who did not finish an alumni. It's not fair to the others who complete the degree.

A Dean or Administrator would lose his or her job and be kicked out. Corruption is not hard to discover at educational institutions. I can't see Her Majesty or anybody in that family "bribing" an American University. I think they would tell Meghan if this were true she has to say she "studied" there not that she graduated.  

As I said it's no real big deal if she has a degree. It's the rule now rather than the exception for people to go to University and complete a bachelor's degree.

As I said it also could have taken the completion of a thesis to complete the degree and sometimes extensions are given to students so they graduate sometime after the appointed time of graduation. I know this for a fact.

So, what's the excuse for that - too much calligraphy. I see her as a lazy woman who is looking for shortcuts.

Bigger than the royal wedding! How Italian it-girl Chiara Ferragni’s VERY extravagant nuptials created more of a buzz on social media than MEGHAN’S (and her dress designer is cashing in)
Now the Italian It-girl's Siciliy wedding has been officially declared as bigger than the royal wedding, after experts compared its 'media impact value' to Meghan's.
Analysts at Launchmetrics calculated how much each bride 'earned' for their respective dress designers, with the fashion blogger raking in almost twice as much as the Duchess of Sussex.
Media impact value (MIV) is an algorithm formulated by Launchmetrics to measure the value digital coverage and media placements bring to a brand.
In the case of Ferragni, who made headlines around the globe with her high-profile, hashtag-heavy nuptials last weekend, they estimate she brought in  $5.2 million (£4 million) for Dior including $1.6 million (£1.2 million) from posts about her dresses alone.
The marketing platform reports that the social media savvy couple's hashtag #TheFerragnez garnered a total of 67 million engagements (likes, comments, shares and mentions).
In total, Dior accounted for 15 per cent of the total MIV at Ferragni's wedding, compared to just 7 per cent of the royal wedding's MIV for Meghan's dress designer, Givenchy.
Simply put, this means the Italian It-girl's wedding dress had double the impact of Meghan's.

Had enough, London, United Kingdom, 7 minutes ago
Well Smeg's was a fake Wedding with a dress that didn't fit, baggy all over! Bit like her fake engagement ring!

That’s a crying shame that with all of the worldwide coverage that Meghan got leading up to the wedding, that she’s not that important to pull in interest like this Italian blogger did.  :tehe:  At least the press is letting people know that it was her wedding and not a royal one. It was a social media, pr celebrity event which those in attendance have been using for their own pr push like Meghan’s makeup artywho was pushing Aquaphor balm as a pre-highlighter.

Meghan’s style icon status made official! Duchess of Sussex makes Vanity Fair’s prestigious annual Best Dressed list for the FIRST time – and BFFs Serena and Amal also get the nod
The 37-year-old was praised for her 'sleek', 'high-fashion look', with the magazine noting she's the 'most daring of the royal fashion pack'.
http://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/article-6134199/Duchess-Sussex-Vanity-Fairs-best-dressed-list.html
The list is a joke. Her ill fitting clothes should’ve been ridiculed and not praised, but it’s just using her again for pr. To leave off Ms Trump and Ivanka is odd because they dress impeccably. This pc world’s gone mad.  :bored:

Just on the level of the House of Windsor; PR is the only thing that their entire dynasty is built on. The press has made Meg and the press can take it away; Meg (like the rest of the BRF) has nothing of substance to stand on and they can take away all their fawning in a millisecond. Meg had no one there that was a genuine friend (not counting her mother) and I don't think the Clooney's knew she existed until the relationship, much less the engagement.

You guys sparked a thought.  There is no one in Smeg's life (maybe excluding her mother; still not convinced) who is a true friend.  The only people in her circle are either benefitting from her by exposure (Clooney's) or financial reward (everyone else).

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alumnus "The term is not synonymous with "graduate"; one can be an alumnus without graduating."

As an example, at Oxford, simply MATRICULATING (officially starting a degree) is enough to be considered an alumnus. You don't need to graduate. https://www.alumni.ox.ac.uk/eligibility-oxford-alumni-card-and-other-benefits You can also be an associate alumnus if you attend and complete a short course.

Let's just say for poops and giggles that she did graduate. The whole thing is still questionable as heck considering she's claiming to have double majored in a discipline that was not offered by the university at that time. I can't blame anyone for side-eyeing the whole situation.

Bill Gates and others freely admitted they dropped out. Many wildly successful entrepreneurs and techies did not finish University. But it was no secret that they did. Of course the Universities would court Gates and he gets honorary degrees galore.

Meghan Markle has revealed the one thing her & Prince Harry don’t like about being royal
However, it seems there is one thing that Meghan isn’t quite liking about her new like as the Duchess of Sussex.
At the WellChild awards last night, Meghan let slip that she doesn’t like the cameras being around her.  :bored:
The little boy, who won an Inspirational Child award for strength following his battle with acute flaccid paralysis, told the Duke and Duchess that he didn’t like the cameras being around.
Meghan and Harry, who are used to being surrounded by cameras, then told Mckenzie that they completely agreed.
Talking to reporters on the night, Mckenzie’s mother Amy said: "They were so lovely. They knew [Mckenzie] was scared of the cameras and they said they didn’t like the cameras either so they turned around.”
It is known that Meghan and Harry haven’t had the easiest of times when it comes to cameras and publicity.
Harry reportedly has tried to scale back public appearances in recent weeks, to try and tone down and control the media frenzy around his wife.   :bored:
The couple also had issues with the media and cameras at the start of their relationship, so much so that Kensington Palace had to issue a formal statement.  ???
The letter, which addressed the “formal action” the Royal Family had had to taken in order to protect their private life and said the media had taken their coverage of Meghan a step too far.
However, it seems the couple do appreciate the power of the media in other ways, with the statement also addressing how the media can raise awareness of "the issues he cares about".

Ok, that was for the young chap’s benefit, but this chick craves the camera and press attention, so much so that she outed the so called relationship and consistently lied to get that statement issued.

Harry and Meghan should stop whining and get on with it. Be gracious and do the duties and smile and stop fussing over it.


^And you just proved my point. If a university is willing to court Gates and tag him as an alum even though he dropped out, why wouldn't they do the same with Meghan considering her global visibility and the desire to appeal to teenage girls?

But he dropped out. Most decided and definitely but he has something Meghan does not have: she is not a techie genius and she does not have gazillions that Gates has. I don't recall them calling him an "alumn." He studied there but technically he is not an alum but they could try to flatter him and give him the honorary degree. I don't know how many of these he has racked up but they must be numerous by now.

No way would Northwestern go and tell a fib that Meghan got a degree. The royals would no way credit her for having one if she didn't. But in any case billions of people get degrees so it is nothing really "special anymore" though she probably does not have huge debts to pay for tuition like many have now.

The BRF has a habit of fluffing up consorts with abilities and qualifications they do not actually have. Kate was hyped as being an accessories buyer, working for her parents, and then 'official girlfriend' and of course, virginal. Kate got hyped as the best consort ever because of her degree (even though she never used it throughout all those years) and then there was the mythical 'training' that Kate supposedly got all those years, preventing her from having a job.

With Meg, she's hyped as this amazing humanitarian who made a big speech at the UN and did diplomatic work at an embassy and was a TV star. She keeps getting referred to as an ex-Hollywood actress despite the fact that she was never part of the mainstream Hollywood world, she was living in Canada. Her work for TV and movies has been sparse and certainly, she was not getting mainstream success or doing any substantial roles that would otherwise make her more prominent.

If the palace bluffed about Meg being a graduate, it would in fact end up be par the course for the BRF to do their best to hype up Meg as much as possible.

In the regards to Bill Gates, he managed to make a success of his life because he had a skill, had a great idea, and chose to go his way and made all the sacrifices needed in order to really build something remarkable.

If Meg dropped out to pursue a successful movie career, it was a huge mistake since she didn't have any unique traits or skills and she should have done small acting jobs while pursuing her education as a backup. It takes a large amount of LUCK to succeed after dropping out of school and Gates filled a niche that was there.

Meghan Markle Had a British Secret Service Agent With Her on ‘Suits’ Set
Join us each week to hear more about your favorite TV shows and for the latest TV news! Download the latest Watch With Us Podcast now! Opens a New Window.

The royal treatment! Serious measures were taken to ensure Meghan Markle’s safety during her days starring on Suits after news broke of her relationship with Prince Harry.

Wendell Pierce, who starred as the former actress’ father on the legal drama, reflected on learning of her romance with the British royal, 33. “She is really wonderful. I actually didn’t think it was real, then all of a sudden I turn round and there is a guy from MI5 on set every day,” Pierce, 54, told Extra on Tuesday, September 4, of the British security and counter-intelligence agency. “The one thing that was clear [was that] she was extremely happy. She had a glow. I knew she was in love. With the whirlwind of publicity and the world of being a royal now, the one thing that’s constant is the fact that I know she loves him.”

The newly minted duchess, 37, received special attention on the set of the USA Network series after she started dating Harry in the summer of 2016. “It inarguably boils down to security issues,” a source exclusively told Us Weekly in May 2017 of Meghan, whose name was taken off the series’ schedules at the time for her own protection. “Information was leaking out of Suits like crazy. As soon as it came out that they were dating, everyone was warned to stop talking or they would be fired.”

I agree. The fuss made over University study by royal brides is absurd.  It did not make the brides intellectuals by any means.

The royals can't tell Northwestern she graduated--they have nothing to do with it and she was not involved with them when she went to Northwestern. NOrthwestern administration would be in deep trouble if someone's record there was tampered with when he or she did not finish the degree program but was credited as doing so.

I think she got the degree but it is not a big deal and does not make her an intellectual giant.

I admit I get steamed at how anyone with a degree is called a member of the elite, but really, these days it is not unique. She really didn't make much with her time there and she certainly didn't graduate with any distinguished accomplishments, or make good use of her education.

I really think royals should no longer have any say over security issues or assign guards; this isn't paid to take care of their latest fling, but to take care of the royals. As for ordering silence in regards to working with her, she's lucky she got that ring or she would have lost any chance of further work with anyone with that BS attitude. For the life of me, I do not understand why everyone has to treat someone who is dating a royal like they're a VIP. This silence policy is just a sign of how up themselves the Windsors are.

Two things to unpack from this story -
1. Wendell is the new black mouth piece of Megan since Doria is bound by nda, can't blab to new bestie - Oprah and can only show up with t-shirt merches
2. MI5 was on set to make sure that there's no leaks from Megan. Officially they are there to protect her but in reality they are there to spy on her machinations.
It's a mystery, though, if M was so happy, H was so smitten, MI5 was there to protect the love interest ... why did Harry look like he was poisoned when he saw his dearest on IG opening in Toronto. Why  ???

^Harry strikes me as the kind of person who wants everyone around him to direct his life, only do it his way. His upbringing basically groomed him for that expectation and as a result, Meg basically managed to get in stay there, not go away, and has basically ended up with the ring. Harry took a passive approach and ended up with her.

Odd that KF was just talking about what would’ve been had Wills not crawled back to Waity, we get this odd article in the DM and Meghan’s being blamed.  :cookie:
This is in the Kate thread but I’ve posted the link here so the comments can be seen.
http://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/article-6138913/How-Kate-fled-Dublin-2007-split-Prince-William.html#comments-6138913

There’s talk in the tabloids of a feud between Waity and Meghan due to jealousy. It’s getting good because her fans think she’ll be queen and she does act like she wants Wills during the few times they were seen together. Nice one if they’re setting her up as a crazy stalker who wants Wills and would be a danger to Waity. This will tie into the mental health stuff as she’ll face criminal charges and mental institution.

That would be a bit of a problem; if MEg is revealed to be a genuine psychopath, then I am certain that it'll make the BRF and MI5 look like inept fools, which would have serious repercussions for the nation's prestige. If the BRF can't vet fiancee's properly, what is to say that the MI5 is capable of protecting the country?


Title: Re: Duchess Meghan: News and Random chat 2018
Post by: windsor2 on September 06, 2018, 04:32:14 pm
True, but Waity and the Midds, especially Gary with his drugs and sex trade women were around Wills for years and MI5 surely would’ve had dossiers on all of them that Wills ignored. It’s best to take special protection off of the royals as they ignore what the professionals have to say and continue to associate with social climbing starkly grifters like the Midds and Meghan.


Title: Re: Duchess Meghan: News and Random chat 2018
Post by: Kuei Fei on September 06, 2018, 04:59:18 pm
I think so too; no more British secret service paid for by the taxpayer.

You know, William allegedly wanted protection for Kate from the MI5, but it was refused and this shows that William doesn't get it that the secret service isn't there to cater to his whims, but to protect him from harm. I'm sure that William did get and read that info, but he refused to see that despite how 'nice' someone is, if a woman is mixed up in things like this, then there is something seriously wrong.

William might not have been touched by the thugs, but the fact is, that Kate was living a lifestyle paid for by the exploitation of children. Her family's sweatshop in Mexico is bad enough, but promising 'young and fresh' girls is something worse. Drugs, people get the death penalty for just having this stuff in their bag.

It is clear that the BRF refuses to pay attention when they are warned about people, so yes, the government should make them pay for their own security. When you throw in the way these royals throw money around, they should be putting their physical safety first and respect their security's attempts to protect them.

WHY the BRF listens to the press more than they do their security, I do not know.

The operation booting M out would be interesting. To me M is a psycho, a certifiable one. To me MI5 presence was not a coincidence and they were certainly not there because she's important. Imo the only way to handle a psycho is full exposure and making it impossible and socially undesirable to continue to pursue you.

Post by: windsor2 on September 06, 2018, 07:16:12 pm
^true and the only way to control her and to get her to sign NDA or any other document was to play her at being special enough for Harry to ‘marry’ her after the queen gave her so much special privileges. She’s mental enough to have caused a race situation with the royal family by accusing Harry of being a racist because she couldn’t accept that she was a drunken booty call, IMO, when she in fact marketed and saw herself as white. She needed to be reigned in and made to shut up and now suffer the consequences of her actions.
Waity’s getting it in the comments about hwhen Wills dumped her, so I’m wondering if the press will do an article on Meghan that’ll finally unleash her dirt once and for all.

I don't believe that Murks is a sociopath. She is a  controlling narcissist with mediocre breeding  and a social climber who got the jack-pot in social climbing, or one of them.  She is completely self-absorbed and lies without a thought to it. And she gets away with it. But I don't think that she has a diagnosed disorder. She shares some tendencies of Diana which probably attracts Harry emotionally. But the bottom line is he is chemically attracted to her and likes her personality and she knows how to manipulate him. And I think she appeals to his wild trashier side. In the future she may become more mental.

Nope but she married into a family with gazillions and now has a global platform. The name association raises the school's Q-score on all digital platforms, gives them an "in" with the exact demographic they are trying to market, and gives them another deep pocket from which to request donations. Whether she graduated or not is beside the point. Her taking even one class on their campus is all the association they need and they are not missing an opportunity to capitalize on it.

Post by: Kuei Fei on September 07, 2018, 12:45:47 am
How so? There's nothing to capitalize on since Meg hasn't accomplished anything interesting with her life. Her global platform is falling flat since the press has more interesting things to cover (what with Trump's drama and the issue of everything else that is going on) and the BRF are old hat and their relevance is hanging on by a thread. I don't believe that the BRF is what it used to be; Diana (and to an extent Fergie) were the reason they became relevant again and they lack credibility.

I don't believe that Murks is a sociopath.

In the future she may become more mental.

I think she's just bad news, a rotten apple and there isn't any mental illness. I'm mentally ill myself and often, someone is just plain bad and there is no medical reason for it. I believe that these days everyone wants to find some kind of REASON for something and the simplest answer is usually the right one: Meg is just a bad person and isn't going to make some magical transformation. Sometimes mental illness is diagnosed to make us feel better about bad people, as if there can be a cure for it. Thing is, that throughout her life she had the chances to live a better life and be a better person, but chose not to. It's her choices that reveal her, not a chemical imbalance.

^^ I agree Kuei. Even I'm guilty of that sometimes myself but after reading some other's opinions on that a while back, I came to the conclusion that I agree and that I and others need to stop trying to excuse other people's poor actions, character traits, and lack of accomplishment on a mental illness. That is the case for some but usually not the person in question at the time. No, they were just poorly raised, never learned learned right from wrong, never held to a higher standard, didn't work hard enough or at all, didn't want to accomplish anything significant, etc. and that's the end of it. What you see is indeed what you get. So many people have really just done a wooly job of raising their children. As a teacher of mine once said, trash in, trash out.


Title: Re: Duchess Meghan: News and Random chat 2018
Post by: lesken on September 07, 2018, 02:25:57 am
^ It is true. The Murks happened to be born with a very low level of true compassion for others or empathy and most likely was the spoiled child. And this fed on her narcissistic tendencies so she loves them (as well as she can) and leaves them without a taking a breath. Her intelligence combined with her self-absorption makes her successfully manipulative and ambitious for her own glory, including pretending that she really care or would sacrifice for anyone or thing. But those are  just her personality traits and disposition not a mental illness. And by the way mental illnesses as we all know are as varied in type and  degree as snowflakes. Many very successfully wonderful people can suffer from a form of mental illness but overcome it and live a good life. So,
 it is never really the root of what we see as bad behavior much of the time. Of course it can be but isn't always. So I think some people are bad too and they can or cannot have a mental illness.

Don't get me wrong. I agree with your assessment of Meg but we aren't who the school is trying to target, neither are we who her PR team is trying to target. They are going for teen girls. We know her brand of humanitarian/duchess is nothing to strive for, especially compared to the other women in that lookbook but most teen girls don't. We also have been around long enough and are discerning enough to know that the BRF is on the decline. Their target audience still buys into the idea of Disney princesses/Mia from the Princess Diaries and Meg is being sold as the real-life equivalent. The school is capitalizing on the fantasy. If you put all the pieces together - the merching, how she sold herself on social media, her behavior on engagements, the People's Choice and Teen Choice nominations, the publications her PR team is feeding (People, US Weekly, etc) - it's evident who they are targeting. I'm in marketing/PR so a lot of this is obvious to me.

Why would William want MI5 to look after Kate? He doesn't have MI5 protection. He has police protection. His RPOs come from the Metropolitan Police. Their job is to provide physical protection of their principals not moral protection or protection against social climbers or to stop them doing stupid things. The RPOs are there to stop the idiot killing or maiming their principal and that is their only job.

I don't believe the BRF are in decline at all, actually. Their last polling, done by a reputable polling company earlier this year, showed a 73% approval rating for the monarchy. Round about where it's been for the past few decades as a matter of fact.

I don't believe VF or People (or NW Uni) target teenage girls with a Disneyesque view. If interest in the Royal wedding in the US is any indication the audience there (the TV channels covered parties in bars, restaurants and private homes on the day) seemed to consist of women from the twenties to the fifties age group. Some were women of colour. Some of these women wore fascinators or tiaras in fun, sipped champagne, and looked like they were having a ball watching the ceremony. So I'd say there is a wide base of women who really got into Meghan's joining the BRF and probably still follow her.

As for the rabble who comment in the Fail, they are always critical of practically everyone. In fact I've never seen such a pack of collective whingers in my life. And they consist of a few thousand, of which probably over half don't live in the UK anyway. They do not represent the over 64 million people in the UK in any way, shape or form, and IMHO it's a mistake to think they do.

^ I wouldn't defend the indefendable even if I was on payroll.

Sham polls, fake nominations, undeserved lifestyle, $3K a 45 min appearance out of the taxpayer's pockets - nothing about this indicates approval rating. DM's commenters are pretty much on point with what's the mood about brf. It hasn't been all negative all the time. But I do agree that they are not true representatives of the millions of taxpayers who foot the bill for the rf... thre's a lot of dumb people out there who fall for cheap whitewashing and PR manipulations.

OK, so Meghan Markle’s dog didn’t actually get to go to the royal wedding. You may recall how canine lovers across the internet were disappointed when a viral video, purportedly showing the beagle riding with Queen Elizabeth II to his master’s May nuptials, was revealed to be footage from the previous day.

No matter. Partly as a result of the hoopla, Simon & Schuster is releasing a whimsical children’s book about the dog’s wags-to-riches tale titled “His Royal Dogness, Guy the Beagle: The Remarkable True Story of Meghan Markle’s Rescue Dog.”

The Nov. 20 release, written by Camille March and Michael Brumm and illustrated by EG Keller, charts Guy’s challenges as a kill-shelter captive-turned-blue-blooded-pooch. “He has no fancy papers, no high-class education and no command of the British paparazzi,” a Simon & Schuster summary explains.

The press changed on her narrative after the Hamilton mess. She looed lie an escort and her stylist Jessica got the balme for it as she did advise her to put that jacket ona and call it a dress. From then on, the articles that feaured Meghan seemed to have diminished uite a bit to nw where she's mentioned but not of any significance. Now when she's mentioned, it's in such a way that it invites ridicule.

In particular, Charles’s bond with his younger son Prince Harry is warmer than it has been for many years – helped by the relationship he has built with his daughter-in-law Meghan.

Piers Morgan details former friendship with 'social climber' Meghan Markle on the Late Late Show
Piers Morgan has called Meghan Markle “a slight social climber” and claimed that the actress “ghosted” him.
Speaking on The Late Late Show, Mr Morgan said that him and Britain's Duchess of Sussex had a “good friendship” before she began dating now-husband Prince Harry, but that he didn’t really like being ghosted.”
Elaborating on their friendship, Mr Morgan said that the former actress first contacted him in 2015.
“About three years ago, I followed all the Suits stars on Twitter and in five minutes I got a direct message from Meghan Markle,” he told Ryan Tubridy. “The message said, 'hey, I’m a big fan, so excited you’re following me'. Another guy from Suits he got involved too. And we began corresponding, publicly and privately.
“She began sending me early copies of Suits episodes, she’d email me, I thought we had a good friendship.”
Mr Morgan said that Ms Markle used to visit London to watch tennis matches of her friend Serena Williams, and on one of these visits, she proposed that they meet up for drinks.
“She asked, 'would you like to meet up for a drink?' I said 'yes, sure'. I said come to my local pub. So she came to my local pub in Kensington, ironically about half a mile from the Kensington Palace. Nobody knew who she was, but when she walked in the pub looking like a million dollars, they all went that oh, maybe she is someone really special.”
Mr Morgan said that after the drinks, he put her in a cab, incidentally the cab that was headed to a party where she met Prince Harry. Mr Morgan claims that that is the last he ever heard from Meghan Markle.
“We had two hours in the pub, we got on perfectly,” he explained. “And then I put her in a cab, and then it turned out to be a cab to the party where she met Prince Harry. The next night they had a solo dinner together, and that was the last I ever heard from Meghan Markle.”
Mr Morgan said that he really liked her, but he thinks she is “a bit of a social climber, I’m afraid.”
“At her wedding, there was only one member of her family there,” he said. “The rest could not be risked! It was too dangerous.”
He said that he was ghosted by Meghan and one Suits co-stars, who he claimed apologised after the wedding.
“The other guy - I won’t name him - he did the same,”  he said. “He popped up after the wedding, which he was at, apologising, saying I’m so sorry and all that. He’d been told to ghost me as well.”
Meanwhile, the Good Morning Britain host also said that the Irish should “hold your nose” and respect the office of the President of the United States when US president Donald Trump visits later this year.
“I think America and Ireland have an amazing historical connection, and I always say that okay if you don’t like the leader of a country like America, but they’re a great ally to this country, and you do huge trade with them,” he said. “ I think America is the biggest importer of Irish goods and there are huge goods coming in from America.
“So I mean, if you want to protest, go ahead, it’s a free democracy. Try and hold your nose and respect the office of the President of the United States.”

Meghan Markle news: What Prince Charles REALLY thinks of Prince Harry's wife
Her first official appearance as part of the Royal Family was Prince Charles’ 70th birthday party on May 22.
Meghan proudly stood alongside her new in-laws while Prince Harry made a speech at Buckingham Palace.
She broke into a fit of giggles along with Prince Charles and Camilla when a bee interrupted her husband while he paid tribute to his dad for his charity work over the years.
But what does Prince Charles really think of Prince Harry’s wife?
A family member reportedly told Vanity Fair that Prince Charles is “closer to Harry than ever” and is forging a “lovely relationship with the duchess”.  :tehe: Yeah so much so that he kicked her out of hs party.  :laugh:
They said: “The wedding was a real turning point.
“Charles showed so much love towards Harry and Meghan, and I think Harry will be eternally grateful to his papa for stepping in and giving Meghan’s hand in marriage.
“The bond between them is very close.”
The family member said: “Charles has been very supportive of Meghan and everything she is going through with her own father.
“He’s got a real soft spot for her and thinks she’s the best thing to have happened to Harry.”  :laugh: :laugh: :laugh: :laugh: :laugh:

The source, imo, is Mio Scobie, Mehgan's spokesperson.

Meghan and ex husband Trevor Engelson’s ‘A-list -power couple’ body language analysed
MEGHAN MARKLE, 37, is married to Prince Harry, 33, and the couple had their wedding in May. However, the Suits actress was previously married to another man, Trevor Engelson. A body language expert analysed the now divorced pair.  :cookie:
Meghan Markle, from LA, California, began dating Trevor Engelson, now 41, from Great Neck, New York, in 2004, when Meghan was 23-years-old and he was 28.
The couple were together for seven years before the actress married the Jewish producer in a ceremony in Jamaica on September 10, 2011 in Ocho Rios, Jamaica.
However, the marriage was not to last and they separated 18 months later.
Body language expert Judi James analysed images of the couple exclusively for Express.co.uk.
She claims the pair “planned their posing to mirror the kind of A-list power couple body language that we'd see from some of the leading Hollywood couples.”  :tehe:
This is perhaps unsurprising, since the producer and actress were surrounded by the trappings of Hollywood during their relationship.
Judi said: “Trevor and Meghan are adopting body language that looks choreographed to create the ideal effect rather than being spontaneous and loving.”
The producer, who is known for working on Remember Me in 2010 with Twilight’s Robert Pattinson, fills the “co-star” role for his actress girlfriend.
“Trevor looks very much in co-star mode here with Meghan's poses showing she is the leading lady and the one to the front in the spotlight,” Judi added.
“While Trevor stands rather woodenly with a stretched, fixed smile and one hand in his pocket to suggest nonchalance, Meghan converses with the cameras rather than him, throwing a very direct and meaningful glance and perfect smile while she stands to the front of the pose with her body facing the photographers.
“The couple might have placed their arms around one another's waists but there is little if any form of tie-sign or connection between them here.”
She adds: “(Trevor) might have been happy to let Meghan step out to the front and do her own thing alone.”
In another picture the couple appear to stand closer together, but Meghan’s focus is on the cameras, Judi claims.
The expert said: “This is a much closer-looking pose in terms of attention and rapport, but it still shows Meghan holding the cameras with her eye contact and her smile and 'posing off' her husband rather than the pair paying one another active attention.
“Their torsos are facing here and Meghan has pressed her head up against her husband's chin but although Trevor's left arm seems to be part raised in a truncated gesture that could have been the offer of a cuddle or touch, Meghan's free arm is held straight down at her side to create a better body pose.
“With her slightly raised shoulder and the way she smiles over this shoulder gesture suggests she is keen to show us her love for her husband here though.”
Why did Meghan Markle divorce Trevor Engelson?
The divorce document cites the commonly used reason of “irreconcilable differences” for their split.
Meghan Markle and Trevor Engelson’s wedding was a sun-bathed affair, taking place in Jamaica.
Unlike her royal wedding day, Meghan relaxed by the pool wearing a bikini with her mother before she wed Trevor.
They pair said their vows on the beach and Meghan wore a simple strapless gown with a plunging neckline and sparkling silver dress.

She does the same thing with Harry; he's her co-star. Interesting that this is beng rought up now that the over-board pr seems to have ceased and Meghan not looking too happy during the last 2 engagements.

Throwing in fake PR about Charles liking her, a distraction book about the dog that didn't get dumped, ... still people can't unsee or forget the escort outfit for the Hamilton event where she dressed as herself. The only  thing missing back them was the red lipstick and the red soles of the shoes.

^^Very good observation that Harry is her co-star.  It is how she looks at things.  Now, in some cases, that’s a good thing.  Unfortunately, I don’t think Sparkles plays second banana very well, if at all, and for the BRF, Harry's the Star and she’s in the supporting actress category.

I think Harry and the House of Windsor does think along the lines of cinema; their entire dynasty was created for the sake of good PR. I don't believe that she's at a point where she views this as a major step up, the role of a lifetime that she can play securely forever. She is reveling in this and I believe the House of Windsor has finally erased the line between royalty and cinema. Now the BRF no longer can look down on playing ot the gallery and can't look down on 'celebrity' since that is all that they have left. Any slim chance at gravitas is now gone for good.

This PR could be for Charles' benefit as well. There were huge rumors that he and his sons don't get along and an article like that appeared recently (it was on this board somewhere). It could be that he wants to project the one big happy family rumors and playing happy families.  Charles also strategically places photos in his room when he is being filmed. To offset the rumors that he and his sons and in-laws don't get along. The PR benefits IMO both Charles and Meghan or so they might think.

What difference it would make to carry on a friendship despite dating Harry?

Unless Piers said or did something so perverted she didn't ever want to see or talk to him again, and asked her friend not to as well. Sounds to me like Piers wanted a hell of a lot more than just friendship.  Are we supposed to believe she used Piers Morgan to get close to Harry, or something?

Post by: windsor2 on September 08, 2018, 08:24:54 pm
Another angle to look at what’s been happening is that the royal family is seen as old fashioned and out of touch with the world today. Celebrity culture is what’s the norm and what’s gripped the world today. By letting Meghan take the lead, she, the celebrity, is using the tactics that the celebrities use to garner attention that would get those that don’t pay attention to the royal family a lookin now. The constant articles in the press and on social media that hyped up her romance with Harry and how it’s great to have a modern woman who’s also biracial and is aware to what’s happening in the world today and is relatable to the majority of the public. The ‘woke’ wedding just solidified this narrative as it was seen as progressive and multicultural and the royal family accepting of the modernization of the monarchy to fit the changing world. Meghan/Harry are a celebrity couple complete with family drama from the Markle’s, Meghan’s expensive attire discussed in all the major magazines and gossip shows, fashion icon status, jet setting and hanging out with the celebrity crowd such as the Clooney’s, all the same fantasy articles that you see from  celebrity couples. Now that the royal family has a global audience, they have to shift from this scenario by having this marriage explained that it’s not legal because she was hired to participate in this experiment; anything to make her go away and then show that there’s nothing wrong with tradition and being too modern isn’t a good thing.
The tide for Meghan’s press really turned after Hamilton engagement and I also think that the interview that she gave regarding the queen’s commonwealth documentary was also a factor. The thing that hurts the royal family’s image is that they’re considered whilst colonialist and out of touch with the commonwealth wealth especially the Caribbean and African countries, that they feel that the royal family doesn’t care about their problems. Having a biracial woman now married into the family and seen the royal family very accepting of her would turn that view around. I don’t think that when the inevitable end comes to Meghan being booted out, it should be on tax and visa issues as that’s relatable to the public. It would be something that she’s hiding from Harry as a lot of the articles kept saying that she’s the boss in the relationship and is capable of hiding stuff from Harry. The best way to get rid of her will be showing that she’s been leaking to the press before and after the wedding. Breach of Harry’s trust that the world will want her gone. I think that’ll be better than saying that this was a social experiment to get the reaction from the public about how they view the royal family.
You know during this farce, that Charles has been shifting around his charaties and giving Faucet more duties to manage them? I do remember an article about discussions to have Charles finances be examined, but now he might be hiding things behind this charade.
^^true, but the recent article has Charles getting Meghan and Harry thrown out of his garden party at BP. The video contradicts the aim of the article.
^she used Pierce as he’s s top journalist in the UK and would sing her praises in all the media platforms that he’s present on, which he did. Once something/someone better came along that she could latch onto to further climb towards Harry, she took that and dumped Piece. This is how this woman operates.

TALK OF THE TOWN: Meghan Markle helps her best pal Amal Clooney create a taste of trendy Soho at home with George by putting her in touch with a top designer
Amal Clooney has loved the style of on-trend Soho House ever since she was introduced to the oh so fashionable members’ club by best friend Meghan Markle – and now she is busily recreating the Soho vibe at home with George.
I’m told the Duchess of Sussex put Amal in touch with Soho’s top designer Vicky Charles, who has now helped Amal, 40, restyle the Clooneys’ riverside mansion in Sonning-on-Thames, mirroring Soho House’s signature style, as a recent Instagram picture of Amal stylishly attests.

^^Not quite true.  The Board of Governors evaluates all films for entry, respectively, for Emmy and Oscar awards.  No one ever really knows if any of the thousands of voters actually watch an episode but are encouraged to do so.  They are all anonymous.  But, yes, it is assumed that voters are given a chance to view the contender's works.  Only after the nomination process, however, directed by the Board.

However, giving a tape of a show to any member of the media has to be cleared by the production company.  Then, if, let's say Piers, shows even a clip of the show, his company has to pay royalties or it is indeed breaking copyright laws.  'Don't think Piers is that stupid.

^The congenial and polite thing to do is wait to be asked for a copy of your material.  Otherwise, it's not only pushy but you really have to get paperwork signed after the fact and it's klunky.  If a talk show is expecting Sparkles to be on, it is they who ask for an advanced copy or a set of the works and then all legal mumbo jumbo is done beforehand and it's a smoother process.

But, then, it's Piers' company who owns the product.  If she wanted to give him a copy, privately, that's ok, but you still have to make sure it's legal and that Piers knows he cannot reproduce any portion without an ok from her Co.  Very strict, actually.

Does Meghan Markle feel ‘nostalgia' for her old career? Looked ‘truly happy’ at Hamilton
MEGHAN MARKLE, 37, is the Duchess of Sussex. She married Prince Harry, 33, in May. The pair watched a gala performance of Hamilton recently. Does the Suits actress miss her acting past?
Meghan Markle is now familiar across the globe as a member of the British Royal Family.
The wife of Prince Harry once worked as an actress. After studying theatre at university, Meghan has numerous acting roles.
She scored her big break in cable drama Suits playing sexy paralegal Rachel Zane.
And Meghan relived elements of her acting past when she posed on stage with the cast of Hamilton recently.
The couple attended a special gala performance of the award-winning musical to raise money for Harry’s aids charity Sentebale.
Body language expert Judi James claims Meghan might be feeling some nostalgia for her past career.
She said: “The facial expressions say it all here really, especially the eye expressions.”
The body language expert said it appears “as though the actress part of her has just come alive again to be standing in line with other performers on stage.”
In an image of the couple sat in the stalls, Judi said: “Meghan's raised brows create a knowing-looking smile as her eyes look up into what could be the upper row of the stalls and she performs a small preening gesture, touching an earring with her left hand.
“Her open-mouth smile as she communicates with actors behind them suggests a very confident form of delight in contrast with Harry's 'big kid' grin and eye gleam.”
However, Judi said: “It's in the line-up with the other cast members that Meghan really looks in her element though, and this could signal some nostalgia for her old career.
“As Harry stands behind her placing a careful hand to her waist Meghan's wide, confident smile and slight head tilt suggest she's feeling truly happy and at home.”
However, the Duchess is not likely to be heading back to the stage anytime soon, according to the expert, despite enjoying being at the theatre.
Judi said: “There is a careful modification of this pose once the shots are taken though, that should let us know that the smell of the greasepaint hasn't actually turned her head.
“In the last picture she quietly disassociates herself from her performing past by reverting to some more self-effacing and even slightly shy gestures to make herself look less like a fellow actor.”
What is more, the Duchess appears to subconsciously emphasise her role of wife and Duchess by showing off her engagement ring, Judi claims.
She explained: “Hunching her shoulders slightly she brings her clutch bag up as a small barrier signal, holding it with straight fingers that display her wedding and engagement rings to emphasise her new role in life.”
It was recently revealed that Meghan Markle and Prince Charles, 69, are ‘very close’.
A family member told the magazine: “The wedding was a real turning point.
“Charles showed so much love towards Harry and Meghan, and I think Harry will be eternally grateful to his papa for stepping in and giving Meghan’s hand in marriage. The bond between them is very close.”

I believe that she is as well as the life of total freedom. She looks like she'd rather be elsewhere during engagements now but that's Harry's life and not the fun jet setting, first class champaign life she must've thought a prince lives. I hope she does bail out now. I can't believe that her visa and other stuff's been sorted if she''s actually going on that tour which sounds like it's in parts of Austrailia and NZ that's like the outback and staying at the government residences and not fancy hotels. Meghan had it good before as she was living her vapid life staying a fancy hotels and dining on fine food. Oh well, she chased Harry nd got to be his plus ne and not an equal partner on the global world stage.

She didn't have much of a career; her main tier was low level television premieres and B-movies; she wasn't going ot the posh level screenings and I think instead she wishes she had the best clothes and invites, without having to be married to Harry. She seems happiest when she's in the spotlight, but wistful about being tied to Harry.

If she had had a top level career and loads of cash and the best designers throwing their collections at her feet, she would not have married Harry, she would have valued her career too much. Yet, such is life, she has ended up basically having to marry Harry to live the lifestyle of an A-list anything.

Meghan Markle Is 'Finding It Hard to Know Who to Trust'
Just before Meghan Markle prepared to step back into the spotlight after some time off over the summer, she jetted off (on a commercial flight!) in late August to visit her close friend and frequent stylist, Jessica Mulroney, in her old stomping ground of Toronto.

Just four months after her royal wedding to Prince Harry, Meghan has maintained a small group of friends that she keeps on speed dial.

“Meghan has lost touch with some of her close friends from before the wedding, which has been tough,” a source tells PEOPLE in this week’s issue. “She’s finding it hard to know who to trust.”https://people.com/royals/meghan-markle-finding-hard-who-to-trust/

You know, I do believe that she has issues in the area of feeling like she was cheated out of bigger roles; she never quite got it that being attractive and mouthing off in a role is no longer considered cute or endearing. Hollywood is LOADED with attractive women trying to make it big and never get noticed. As for her family, they (in her view) are bad people because they do not somehow wave a magic wand and somehow make it all better for her professionally in entertainment (despite all they did for her). I am certain that she bitterly wishes that she didn't have to marry a dolt like Harry to live the life she wanted to gain via a career.

I do think (for reasons known on that other forum) she is aware of how close she is to the throne and is giddy about the truth coming out and then she and Harry would step up and she would be close to becoming Princess of Wales and then Queen Consort. She must think she has a shot and THAT would be the role of a lifetime. Life is unpredictable and I am certain she is in fact very aware of how unpredictable life can end up being.

We've seen a prince and princess of wales divorce, we've read about errant queens being executed despite there never being a precedence, and we've all gone through things that are basically previously thought to be unfathomable.  I do believe that Harry could be closer to inheriting a throne more than previously thought; second sons have a history of becoming heirs, that is why many, many dynasties always aspire to a handful of sons to inherit in case anything should happen.

Should William and Kate become Prince and Princess of Wales then he divorces her, he would still get to keep his place. She would lose the HRH and he could remarry. So no matter what harry does not have a chance. If William stepped aside he has three children in line after him.

Is Meghan's inner circle shrinking? Sources say the Duchess is struggling 'to know who to trust' - and has 'lost touch' with several close friends since her engagement to Prince Harry
Meghan Markle is having a difficult time deciding who she can trust these days.
Since the 37-year-old Duchess of Sussex said 'I do' to Prince Harry earlier this year, relationships she had in her pre-Harry days have fallen by the wayside as she struggles to know whom she can let in.
'Meghan has lost touch with some of her close friends from before the wedding, which has been tough,' a source told People in its new issue. 'She’s finding it hard to know who to trust.'
According to the magazine, she's cut her circle of friends down to a select few whom she knows are trustworthy.
With so many leaks to tabloids — and her own family frequently talking to the press about her — it makes sense that she would limit her relationships to people who won't blab to news outlets as 'anonymous sources' with inside scoop.
These trustworthy friends include her makeup artist, Daniel Martin, and her stylist BFF Jessica Mulroney — whom she secretly flew out to in Toronto in August to visit.
'There's a small group of us that check in with her and see how she's doing, but she's still the same person,' Martin told People.
Being guarded is hardly new for members of the royal family. Earlier this year, royal observer Patricia Treble told Vanity Fair, 'You look at all the senior royals, and they’re incredibly careful about whom they’re friends with. They end up having lots of "acquaintances," or people who "know them."'
Another royal-watcher, Emily Nash, told the magazine that post-wedding, Meghan 'getting used to a more discreet social life . . . she is still going to be seeing and speaking to her most trusted friends just as before.'
Then there's her family. While her mother Doria Ragland recently made the move to the UK to be closer to her daughter, she's very publicly estranged from much of the rest of her flesh and blood.
Her dad, Thomas Markle, has continued to criticize her and her new husband to the press, while her half-sister makes rude remarks on social media.
'It was very wearing on her. It’s her private life,' a source told People of the family scandal. 'The beginning of marriages are not that easy, but to have that impetus of your own family being disloyal is horrible and embarrassing.'  
'All I can say now is that I think Meghan was calculated — very calculated — in the way she handled people and relationships. She is very strategic in the way she cultivates circles of friends. Once she decides you’re not part of her life, she can be very cold.
In December of last year, Priddy spoke to the Daily Mail about the end of their friendship.
'I don’t believe she gave him enough of an opportunity. I think there was an element of “out of sight, out of mind” for Meghan,' she said. 'The way she handled it, Trevor definitely had the rug pulled out from under him. He was hurt.
'It’s this shutdown mechanism she has. There’s nothing to negotiate. She’s made her decision and that’s it,' she said.

She's just putting on airs; she's one of those people who gets a little bit of fame and basically starts putting up a front about how HARD it is to be famous, how HARD it is not to be able to trust anyone (you included), etc. Things like that.

PEOPLE has lost the plot and  I do believe that it has succumbed to yearning for the old royal magic of the 80's and 90's. Instead of being a Hollywood magazine, it has become just another low level publication that slavers over the royals.

It's a real shame since PEOPLE used to be a good movie publication, something that actually carried weight in the world of entertainment.

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry staying here with former Suits actor’s mother
MEGHAN MARKLE, 37, had her wedding to Prince Harry, 33, in May. It has been reported her mother Doria Ragland stayed with the couple.
According to reports Meghan Markle’s mother Doria Ragland visited the Duchess and her husband this summer.
She is said to have stayed with them in in Oxfordshire.
A source told the Mail on Sunday: "The visit was totally under the radar.
“Doria supported Meghan throughout a lot of the ordeal with Thomas."
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle seem to have a penchant for Oxfordshire, especially the Cotswolds
The area is said to be one of “Outstanding Natural Beauty” with rolling hills and sone built towns.
Before their wedding Prince Harry and Meghan stayed in the Cotswolds.   :cookie:  Makes better sense tha those lies about her living with him at KP.
They were reported to have booked a four bed cottage.
A source told the Sun at the time: “The run-up to the wedding has been quite stressful for them and they just wanted to get away and relax before the big day.
“They like to escape to the country for the weekend and the cottage is just perfect for them.”
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s cottage, which they have leased long term, is in the Great Tew Estate.
It is part of the exclusive private members club Soho Farmhouse, where Meghan has visited with Made in Chelsea star Millie Mackintosh and is also reported to have held her hen do there.  8)  She is there huse girl so she's not paying rent.
The website states: “The Great Tew Estate has a variety of residential properties within its portfolio, ranging from one-bed cottages to large detached farmhouses.”
While it is not known how much a lease will cost here, houses for sale in the area are pricey.
Current properties for sale in the area of Chipping Norton include a four bed house accepting offers in excess of £725,000.
Meghan Markle wore a blue dress to a charity gala recently. The whole look cost over £9,000.  bignono

The Clooneys live nearby though and also socialise in Soho House, both in London and Oxfordshire. I've read that Harry/Meghan met the Clooneys there. The Beckhams also have a place nearby and go to Soho House. It's simply used as a place to meet and socialise.

People with status go there to meet and socialize; Meg didn't accomplish anything to be able to get to that level at all. I don't believe that Meg was part of that set as an equal, I think she was there as a groupie and we all know what groupies do to get to be part of the main event. Meg wasn't exceptionally accomplished, or exceptionally connected, or exceptionally powerful in her own right or as a scion of a powerful family. Nothing will convince me she was there through reputable reasons.

For all his idiocies, Clooney has been a big name and he has produced hits like ARGO (that won for Best Director and Best Picture) and is involved in the industry, he's pretty much a fixture for all his lack of recent hits. Amal is a fairly successful lawyer and she did have her own career long before she met Clooney and she is well connected. I do believe that Meg used shadier ways to get in and stay in that club as a fringe member, never as center of the group of legitimate members. Meg starred in a mediocre television series with a few roles in other movies, but nothing as part of the center.

Affleck's wife promoted her family heavily during the award season and admittedly, Affleck did direct it superbly and made the lead role of the FBI exfiltration entirely his own. I do think Jennifer Garner (his wife) also promoted herself heavily during the awards season as well.

Meghan blooms for the cameras

THE Duchess of Sussex has spoken about her wedding day and the veil she wore in her first documentary appearance as a member of the monarchy. In Queen Of The World, a two-part ITV series about the monarch’s role as head of the Commonwealth, Meghan was reunited with her bridal gown and veil as they are prepared for an exhibition at Windsor Castle starting in October.
She talked about the Commonwealth and the symbolic importance of the floral Commonwealth emblems that were sewn in to her 15ft-long silk veil.

Meghan’s bridal gown was a simple, classic creation, but the elaborate veil was embroidered with flowers from each of the 53 Commonwealth nations at the duchess’s request.

During the series, Prince Harry was filmed chatting to young people who won places on the Royal Household Caribbean Hospitality Scholarship initiative, and told them: “You guys have spent way more time in Buckingham Palace than I ever have – and you’ve only been here two weeks.”

The documentary was filmed over more than a year and the makers were given access to private home movies.

The programme showed the role played by the Royal Yacht Britannia in the Queen’s tours of the Commonwealth during the early part of her reign.

Piers Morgan details former friendship with 'social climber' Meghan Markle on the Late Late Show
Piers Morgan has called Meghan Markle “a slight social climber” and claimed that the actress “ghosted” him.
Speaking on The Late Late Show, Mr Morgan said that him and Britain's Duchess of Sussex had a “good friendship” before she began dating now-husband Prince Harry, but that he didn’t really like being ghosted.”
Elaborating on their friendship, Mr Morgan said that the former actress first contacted him in 2015.
“About three years ago, I followed all the Suits stars on Twitter and in five minutes I got a direct message from Meghan Markle,” he told Ryan Tubridy. “The message said, 'hey, I’m a big fan, so excited you’re following me'. Another guy from Suits he got involved too. And we began corresponding, publicly and privately.
“She began sending me early copies of Suits episodes, she’d email me, I thought we had a good friendship.”
Mr Morgan said that Ms Markle used to visit London to watch tennis matches of her friend Serena Williams, and on one of these visits, she proposed that they meet up for drinks.
“She asked, 'would you like to meet up for a drink?' I said 'yes, sure'. I said come to my local pub. So she came to my local pub in Kensington, ironically about half a mile from the Kensington Palace. Nobody knew who she was, but when she walked in the pub looking like a million dollars, they all went that oh, maybe she is someone really special.”
Mr Morgan said that after the drinks, he put her in a cab, incidentally the cab that was headed to a party where she met Prince Harry. Mr Morgan claims that that is the last he ever heard from Meghan Markle.
“We had two hours in the pub, we got on perfectly,” he explained. “And then I put her in a cab, and then it turned out to be a cab to the party where she met Prince Harry. The next night they had a solo dinner together, and that was the last I ever heard from Meghan Markle.”


What difference it would make to carry on a friendship despite dating Harry?

Unless Piers said or did something so perverted she didn't ever want to see or talk to him again, and asked her friend not to as well. Sounds to me like Piers wanted a hell of a lot more than just friendship.  Are we supposed to believe she used Piers Morgan to get close to Harry, or something?

Sending copies of Suits episodes? Isn't that copyright infringement?  :tehe:

So basically it wasn't a first "blind date", they met at a party beforehand. And she knew exactly who'd be at the party. She sounds more and more calculating, the more comes out. I bet she regrets her "friendship" with Piers Morgan now.

It makes more sense their friends arranged for them to be at a party to meet. Then if Harry wasn't keen on her, he isn't stuck. But unless this man is lying, why the heck do they both lie about this? So what at a party first? They both lied about how many times she had met Charles at the engagement interview from what I remember from different articles. I don't understand the lies from Harry as well. He didn't seem so a pr nut to me. Her I understand. Well, whatever the truth really is.

I don't know, the lies the Cambs and Ssexes told during their engagement interviews are mindboggling, esp as they are lies about the most innocuous things. Why peddle the blind date bs when they actually met a day or so before at a party? What is the point? And the "is he kind" bs. Gawd.

I have the ugly thought that Meg was there to be a great bed-mate, not a serious girlfriend; go figure, the friends and the dolt prince didn't think that Meg would want to be more than just a plaything for a while. Meg may very well have been sampled by them and they thought Harry would enjoy her. I do not believe there was any intent that Meg would be a respectable girlfriend and potential wife/consort and I do believe Harry and his buddies never learned from Kate's climb from bed-mate to bride.

As for lying, if the press and public had to accept that two former bed-mates have come royal consorts, that would be too much to stomach and there would be a huge backlash. If the mainstream public knew about "Club H" and Kate's time there as a hanger-on, I am certain that there would have been serious issues and no amount of press propaganda would in fact have bene able to clean Kate up. If Meg's real reason for being part of Soho House were revealed, it would have caused riots.

The usual reason to lie is because you’re ashamed of something.  There is no other logical answer.  Coma, blackout drunk on both sides, or clinical amnesia, too, but they don’t apply here.  

They seem to spend an enormous amount of energy polishing this whole thing up.  I can’t think of one clear, straight forward story told by either of them.

Not only did she know who she was going to meet but during the day she met with her former UK PR agent whom she ghosted afterwards and she told her that she'll meet this evening with PH.

IMO, and this is my speculation, Meg did everything she could to get to a party where PH is. Then on that party she made sure that she was available for a quick get to know each other. Being nice and all that she must have planned the evening, the conversations and how to get to date number two, or a real date number one. It is possible that, actually, the blind date didn't exist, and on the first night she insinuated that she's single and would like more casual something and H being single offered to take her to the Botswana place where he brings all his causal dates, then after the tent experience she went back to Toronto but started to expose that she was with him via IG and when the "internet trolls" started to bother her she cried wolf and from that KP announcement on, she had him and had he backed out of anything she demanded, she would have turned ugly.

The way it all came down, to me, is that Sparkles cherry picked all “racist” remarks in the comments on articles at the precise time that Harry was at his peak of enthrallment and his Hector Protector temper was in full force.  She cried on his shoulder, he lost his cool, the missive went out from KP, I believe, under his stupid signature, and, bam!, he was hooked.

If I recall, there was some report that even lunkhead PW did not approve of that warning or plea letter because it implied that Sparkles would now have “expectations”.  He was right, if so, and Harry was in it up to his eyeballs then.  No way out.  She played his weaknesses to perfection. 

Not that Harry is some innocent lamb in this but if anyone had him 3/4 caught, lighting the fuse against the meanie media was always going to be the coup de grâce.

William ironically has no business disapproving since that is how he ended up reinforcing Kate's delusions and expectations; played along to Kate's narrative. I do realize that Harry really never got it into his head that he was being manipulated and that Meg was trouble.

I think this wasn't a respectable party, I think this was something that could shatter what good rep Harry has left. I don't think Meg was at some movie after party, I believe she was in fact at a party where unmentionable things went on and I do believe that Meg did completely mess with Harry's focus and do stuff that would make the devil blush.

Totally with you on that one. If we patch up the romors about this meeting - per DM comments and tumblr a friend of H hired M to a boat party. M thanked the friend with s** (H hasn't been seen in Pelly's company since then, not even on Hamilton and Pelly's wife is american). Per psychic on youtube M is doing as Key said too - things that other women are not willing to do... Maybe this is what charmed H at first sight. Then came the 'we will save the world together' per cdan. Then the 'Harry, they are attacking me, protect me Harry, I'm defenceless, rescue me Harry, you are all I've got...

I honestly don't think it was a "dirty" party. Harry has women that he slept with one night stands.  Meghan could not force him to care for her. Harry had other needy women in his life but did not feel guilt ridden when he dumped them. It was no Emma Sayles bash or a Vegas party. Harry probably had some 'thrilling' partners who pleased him in bed. I don't think Meghan has any Special Powers to "entrap" men.

Meghan cooks for Grenfell: Duchess makes secret trips to help volunteers create a charity cookbook in first solo project as a royal
The Duchess of Sussex made secret trips to a community mosque to cook with Grenfell Tower victims after the horrifying inferno that left 72 dead, it emerged today as she helped to release a new cookbook.
In her first solo project as a member of the royal family, Meghan Markle has written the foreword to the new book produced by cooks from the Hubb Community Kitchen, an initiative based near the site of the West London tower.
The duchess, who said she 'immediately felt connected' to the kitchen at the Al Manaar cultural centre, first visited in January and has made other secret trips to the centre to meet volunteers and learn more about their work.
The duchess says in her introduction for Together: Our Community Cookbook: 'I immediately felt connected to this community kitchen; it is a place for women to laugh, grieve, cry and cook together.
'Melding cultural identities under a shared roof, it creates a space to feel a sense of normalcy - in its simplest form, the universal need to connect, nurture, and commune through food, through crisis or joy - something we can all relate to.
'Through this charitable endeavour, the proceeds will allow the kitchen to thrive and keep the global spirit of community alive.'
Some of the recipes are family favourites and all have been created by the cooks who support not only residents affected by the Grenfell fire but others in the community.
In the introduction, the women of the Hubb Community Kitchen wrote: 'Our kitchen has always been a place of good food, love, support and friendship.
'We cook the recipes we've grown up with; there's no stress, and the recipes always work because they have been made so many times – it's proper comfort food…
'Swapping family recipes and moments of laughter gave us a sense of normality and home.
'We named ourselves the Hubb Community Kitchen to celebrate the thing that we all feel every time we meet – hubb means love in Arabic.'
Meghan helped put the group in touch with a publisher and her Royal Foundation provided assistance with legal and administrative issues. no, the staff did that.
One of the contributors to the book, Munira Mahmud, 34, said she and her friends had approached Al-Manaar to ask if they could use the kitchen there and the Hubb project arose out of it.
'Last summer, we were placed in a hotel and I had no kitchen to cook for my family,' Ms Mahmud wrote. 'It was very emotional for me to get in the kitchen. The moment I started cooking I was in tears.

^ There were rumors that when brf was trying to get rid of the wedding she did those secret trips so that she can claim the humanitarian and pitty me card if brf don't go through with a wedding
^^ I agree with you. That's why I think she was dumped but she used the social media to cry racism and push for engagement and then for a wedding. Let's face it - for a royal wedding with A list guests from H'wood, why couldn't they spend a few pennies to bring real flowers, instead they opted for fake ones. She has strongarmed H. That's what I believe. I can't say he does not deserve it if he's been habitually abusive in how he ends things with his gf's and one night stands and what not. But, M is a nightmare.

Also, she is inappropriately dressed for cooking in the kitchen, a white shirt that is open to show cleavage that is non existent, ever the sexpot even while cooking, a white shirt will be get dirty. Where is her apron, hair net and gloves? Did you see how short and then her ponytail was in the video? There's your extension question answered!  :tehe:

A leader in the making! DailyMailTV video shows a precocious 14-year-old Meghan Markle delivering a touching speech on social change at her middle school graduation
Meghan Markle's royal relationship may have come as a surprise to some at first, but it seems the Duchess of Sussex always knew she was destined for great things.

In an exclusive video taken at a then-14-year-old Meghan's middle school graduation, the precocious teenager can be seen delivering a passionate speech about the valuable life lessons she and her peers learned during her time at the school — while looking ahead to their future careers in 'politics, finance, entertainment, and education.'

The video, which was taken at Immaculate Heart Middle School in Los Angeles on June 5, 1995, and obtained exclusively by DailyMailTV, is early evidence that the Duchess, now 37, has always had a knack for public speaking, as well as a strong social conscience.

Meghan grew up on Los Angeles and attended both middle school and high school at Immaculate Heart, a private Catholic school for girls located in the city's Los Feliz neighborhood.

The video begins with the future royal and her classmates holding flowers while walking down the school church's aisle in single file. Footage from the ceremony, shows the teen wearing a white cap and smiling among her peers as she celebrated the end of eight grade.

In another scene, Meghan is flashing a bright smile as she waits to receive her diploma. After her name is called, she accepts its and gives the faculty member who handed it to her a hug.

Meghan's Grenfell cookery book launch was another royal coup for her mother Doria – but it laid bare the chasm between the Duchess and her dad
Yesterday the warmth between the two women was palpable; their affection for one another entirely natural and the effect utterly dazzling.

Never before have a mother and daughter commanded the royal stage so spectacularly as Doria Ragland and the Duchess of Sussex did at Kensington Palace yesterday.

In the space of a few short minutes we witnessed not just the start of a new double act – sorry Harry but you have (at least temporarily) been downgraded to a supporting role – but also a statement of intent from the newest member of the Royal Family.

‘No wonder all the senior Courtiers left BP and KP as they could see what was going to happen once PH married this grifter.  This is such  disgrace; Markle and her alleged jail-bird mother walk in front of Harry and take over the whole event. What on earth  is happening to the RF?  Is Doria now living at KP on taxpayers' expense?  Did we pay for her airfare and her clothes?  I knew this marriage would mark the slow death of the RF, but I think its demise is hastening.’

Strange article, or maybe not.  :cookie:

Wait, Can Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton Still Get Arrested If They Break the Law?
Two words: sovereign immunity.
Meghan Markle and Kate Middleton inherited plenty of perks when they put on their respective tiaras and married into the British royal family, but there's one potential second-hand perk that's clearly better than the rest. Sovereign Immunity.
Under this law, the monarch (aka Queen Elizabeth) is immune from arrest NO MATTER WHAT. In other words, she's completely above the law. But to quote the royal family's website, "Although civil and criminal proceedings cannot be taken against the Sovereign as a person under UK law, The Queen is careful to ensure that all her activities in her personal capacity are carried out in strict accordance with the law."
So, what about members of the royal household, specifically Meghan, Kate, Harry, and William? They don't have blanket immunity like The Queen, but there certainly seem to be some loopholes. Apparently, not only does the massive legal encyclopedia that is Halsbury's Laws of England state that members of the royal household can't be arrested in civil proceedings, arrests can't go down in the monarch's presence, and arrests can't take place anywhere near a palace.  :cookie:
Either way, only the Queen is truly immune from repercussions (sorry, Meg, Kate, Harry, and William!), and if you want proof, look no further than Princess Anne, who was fined (and paid!), a £400 speeding ticket in 2001. And according to The Guardian, she "became the first member of the royal family to be convicted of a criminal offense" in 2002 when her dog attacked someone and she pleaded guilty to a charge under the "dangerous dogs act."
Welp, there you have it.

So, M can't be arrested on tax issued but if her tax issues are connected with international move of money in illegal way then it can be a criminal charge and therefore as long as she walks out of KP she can be arrested. As for the Queen, I guess that the chance of QE being where M is is slim to none.  :bored:

THe IRS is quite severe. If someone does not pay the IRS garnishes salaries and seizes property. I think Meghan has wall to wall lawyers and CPAs around ensuring that no arrests or seizing assets takes place. A person would have to think himself or herself superhuman to try to take on the IRS without proper legal counsel and have a CPA around to supervise. I doubt Meghan will be arrested.

All court proceedings in Britain are proceeded with in the Queen's name. Symbolically they are her courts. The upper courts in Britain operate in the Queen's name, ie Regina vs -----. The chances of any senior Royal or their married-in spouse being arrested, especially in public, are, I would say, extremely thin to none.

Well Meghan is not living in the US at the moment and would presumably therefore be subject to extradition proceedings from Britain, should there be a warrant issued for her in criminal proceedings in US courts. Civil proceedings are a different matter but she has travelled to and back from the US without hindrance this summer, apparently. As far as I know at the moment Meghan isn't the subject of any proceedings, civil or criminal, in either country.

All that help must be costing the BRF a pretty pence; apparently the BRF lost their free legal help years ago and I do believe that the wall to wall legal and financial team is causing courtiers and the BRF to spit nails. That family is not generous when it comes to money and I do not think they like how Meg has put them at odds with the US government; I do not think Parliament is happy about how Meg's antics are going to cause diplomatic problems and strain whne the JOB of the BRF is to build and maintain ties with foreign governments.

Oh, okay.

I wonder how the BRF would react if Meg got charged by a court for not paying adequate taxes; that would put the BRF in a HUGE conundrum. On one hand the BRF would hand her over and pay the bills for expensive legal help, therefore upsetting the public with the expense and deal with the bad PR fallout and sending a message to the US government and Americans that Meg isn't under any obligation (in the view of the BRF) to pay her fair share of taxes, that would also generate more ill will against the upper crust that is already on the verge of going volcanic. On the other hand, if the BRF hands her over to the US authorities, it means that the BRF recognizes the judicial and legal jurisdiction of the US government, over a member of the family of the head of state and therefore, US law is superior to that of British law.

If charged, ti would also mean that Meg would have to undergo the process of arrest and be escorted to the US in cuffs/chains and go through the process of booking and getting either bailed out or left to rot in a jail cell while the trial is prepared. Imagine, an official HRH being escorted in cuffs to face the US justice system. Then the US media would have a field day with this and all the details of her past would come out into the open and the BRF would never be able to rehabilitate her image.

So Meg is merrily creating a horrendous diplomatic crisis for both the US and UK.

If she tackles the IRS by herself maybe. But she would have wall to wall CPAs and attorneys at her beck and call. To ensure that she does not get in trouble. And it is possible for attorneys to negotiate with the IRS to avoid a big tax bill. Meghan cannot go by British law if she earned money in the US. No way.

I don't think there will be any "crisis."

At the same time, the BRF is spending their money on her ongoing legal expenses; this isn't her money being spent and the longer this wrangle lasts, the worse the PR. It looks bad, a member of the BRF (of which Meg is now) is basically shirking on paying their fair share while enjoying the luxurious bounty paid for by the UK taxpayers. I cannot imagine that the courtiers are not seething and I do believe that a lot of ministers are enraged that yet again, their BRF is involved in yet another mess.

We forget that she's 'close' to her friend JM. Speculating here but I think they are in business together. The merchandising business where M wears the fall/winter preview collections and the designers thank JM for it. IMO there are money exchanging hands, with PC paying full price for the monstrosity of clothes and shoes, and as M is forbidden to make money off of clothes but JM get congratulated when M wears something, then I'd be very curious to see where does M's cut for the merching go to, in which country or island is that account and where can the paper trail can be found. IMO the IRS bill may not be the problem. BRF will pay up just to not loose face. The current business dealings could be what DM is alluding to.

If Meg is merching and getting a cut while Charles is paying full price, I think Charles might unleash the wrath that only Diana and his staff have seen. Charles is only as generous as much as the new consorts bring glory to the BRF; Diana lacked for NOTHING in the area of a budget for clothes and the more she did, the more the BRF lavished (along with the rest of the world) jewels and clothes and extras. If Meg is ripping Charles off, then this means that Meg is committing financial fraud against the Crown and means that this is treason and I cannot imagine that things would ever recover for Meg and Harry (who brought her into the BRF). Whew. I cannot imagine Camilla is living a pleasant domestic life and even though she has her own place, she still has to ride with him to engagements and travel with him to attend HM.

Meghan shuts her own car door shock: America's duchess is hailed as 'humble and down to earth' after social media goes nuts over simple, everyday gesture

The Duchess of Sussex has won praise for everything from her sense of style to her charity work, but it was something rather more low-key that attracted fans' attention last night.

Meghan, 37, was hailed as 'humble' and 'down to earth' after she closed her own car door outside the Royal Academy of Arts in London.

While royals typically have their car doors opened and closed by a member of staff, Meghan didn't think twice about shutting her own before making her way inside the building.

If Meg is merching and getting a cut while Charles is paying full price, I think Charles might unleash the wrath that only Diana and his staff have seen. Charles is only as generous as much as the new consorts bring glory to the BRF; Diana lacked for NOTHING in the area of a budget for clothes and the more she did, the more the BRF lavished (along with the rest of the world) jewels and clothes and extras.

Charles is very wary in the ways of money. No way can he be ripped off.

As a US citizen the IRS have Meghan on their "books" and no way can she slip through. The IRS is a powerful organization.

If Charles is inadvertently funding Meg's merching campaign, then yeah, he is being ripped off. If she's getting a cut, he's inadvertently getting ripped off. Charles does have his blind spots and vulnerabilities. So while Charles might not be directly aware, if he's buying clothes from Meg's buddy and Meg is getting a cut, yes, Meg is in fact ripping Charles off and double dipping.

Charles can be ruthless and he's no country bumpkin. If she were doing this, it would have been nipped in the bud ages ago.

He is tight with money and he spends it on his own luxuries (heaven forbid if someone takes some of his funds away but perhaps makes exceptions for Camilla and Fawcett.) And that's it. The royals don't give cheap presents at Christmas for nothing.

I hope she starts looking for new fashion designers in the UK anxious to become recognized and it would be a win win situtation then.

^You raise a good point; clearly the BRF don't care at all about the Commonwealth nations; to them, it's just overseas territories designed to add to the glory of the monarchy (aka themselves) and use as status. The BRF could wear designs from all over the planet with the Commonwealth countries, but regrettably they chose to be so isolationist by determinedly prioritizing British designs above all else.

Meghan has worn quite a lot of Commonwealth designers since her arrival in the UK in November last year, and accessories as well. This Nonie design was by a Calgary designer. A whole list of them was posted on another forum.

^ The photos are of a Canadian designer. Of course she has personal ties to Canada which is the place she got to get her claws into the scene to get to Harry and her Suits role to fame. I would expect she will promote Canada since she still visits there. How about he other countries? Maybe she has worn some stuff from some places. I imagine Australia or New Zealand also may get a designer listed with her ever new wardrobe. What about the smaller less known places?

Meghan may well wear Pacific clothing when she visits Fiji, Tonga,  as Kate did when the Cambridges visited the Solomons on the 2012 Jubilee tour.

She's worn several Australian designers clothing, as on CHOGM week earlier this year. No doubt she will again patronise those designers and probably NZ ones too.

https://honey.nine.com.au/2018/04/19/00/38/meghan-markle-chogm-first-event-royal-australian-designer

Kate has worn designs by Commonwealth citizens as well, notably in Malaysia. So these two don't always promote British abroad.

Amazing, I was reading somewhere that since murky has turned up the SoHo house crew seem to be getting PR everywhere, with dork haza and murky being very involved with them.  Now we have not just a SoHo House opening in Brighton when the sus-sexes visit,  but also Australia.  How strange there is an Australian trip coming up, if not an opening maybe some input into it?  Council cath/family and murky/family are two of the worst things that ever happened to the RF, big time.  Often wonder if it is a plot between the dork brothers to bring the monarchy down in revenge for the "accidental death·" cough cough, of their mother.

One must be very dumb to ruin their entire life on a revenge streak.

As for the SoHo openings ans the duo going to each one of them as if it's their job to do so, there was a rumor some time ago that the Soho owners went owing a lot of millions to others, the so called investors. They were going under because the 'we are so exclusive' didn't sell well the the exclusive people. Then all of a sudden - Harry starts going to Soho and possibly meets Meg there and now they are global representatives - going to all openings ...as if it's their work to do so which really turns Harry the prince into Harry the common celeb wanna be that goes to all the parties but to none that count.

The only opening of a Soho House Harry has been to has been to the one in Amsterdam, with Meghan. He wasn't there at any other that I know of, including the one in London Charles opened.

And Meghan gets her expenses as a BRF representative paid by Charles (her wardrobe etc) through Duchy money in the form of an allowance to Harry. Exactly as Kate gets hers, (and the Cambridges have a larger household.) The only thing the British people pay for with any Royal, apart from the Queen, Prince Philip, is security, which comes through Home Office yearly grants.

^^There is a blog that tracks her expenses for clothing. She's at 1.5 mil so far or will be by the end of the year. The speculation is how much more than 2mil she will be by the 1st anniversary.

Title: Re: Duchess Meghan: News and Random chat 2018
Post by: Rosella on September 29, 2018, 05:52:37 am
I think there are quite a few posts here that explains how the Duchy of Cornwall works (and how it goes back many many centuries.) Can't be bothered to look for it at the moment  though!

Suffice to say in this debate, that if all Charles's income from the Duchy was regarded as public monies then every single item would be tabled in reports at the end of the year and signed off by the Auditors in the Treasury. Charles does file his Duchy expenses at the end of the year, but a proportion is not detailed. We do not know and have never known, because of this, exactly how much per year Charles spends on art, hobbies, private travel, clothing, jewellery and expenses for Camilla in both their private and public life, and exactly how much allowance he pays each of his sons.

There are several online sites and forums following Meghan's clothing and jewellery costs, and the tabloids too have purportedly added it up, including in those expenses her wedding tiara and some jewellery said to be gifts! I've said here and in other places, lots of times, that I do not believe (a) that high end fashion houses (like Givenchy) release the price of their garments to the media, so we are never likely to know the price of each. Same with accessories. And (b) I also don't believe that people in any Royal family anywhere pays full price for virtually any item in their wardrobe.

We know, as far as the BRF is concerned, that the QM cut deals with couturiers in the 1920s, and it's been going on ever since. Diana used to look at photos, often get the people at Vogue to phone London designers and ask if they would send over samples in her size. If she liked them she would get the clothes altered and then pay, but I would bet all my money it wasn't full price. Other royals, including Kate and Sophie do much the same with designers they like, and the designers play ball because the publicity is like gold dust.

Old articles regarding her marriage to Trvor and her relationship with Corey.
That was an interesting article @Scorpiotwentythree found.
Further to the dissolution of her marriage to Trevor, there was an article printed in Daily Mail 5 Nov 2016 which throws a bit more light:
“Attempts to revive her marriage during an exotic holiday in the Far East failed. Trevor Engelson won’t comment on what happened, but there seems to be some residual bitterness.  I’m told they are not now in touch at all, and his well-heeled father David muttered the word ‘bull***t’ alongside the more usual ‘no comment’ when asked about his former daughter-in-law this week — which seems to hint at some serious dissatisfaction with whatever went on.“   
This was when no one expected Harkle to marry and the candidness he let slip is now long gone.  Everything is massaged (at least until after the divorce!).
Ref:  http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3906994/ALISON-BOSHOFF-Meghan-minx-REALLY-Prince-Harry-s-Miss-Right-Princess-Eugenie-helped-fix-Prince-socially-ambitious-TV-star.html#reader-comments
Now , back to that article @Scorpiotwentythree.  The author’s byline (David Jones Weekend) is a link to his other stories and if you click on it he wrote six articles in total on Meghan in April 2018.
https://www.dailymail.co.uk/home/search.html?s=&authornamef=David+Jones+For+Weekend
1.  I know I have read some of them before, even though none of them have any comments, esp the one (The hunky chef Meghan nearly married:  Told for the first time, the full inside story of Ms Markle’s two-year affair with the man who gave her an entree into high society) with Cory’s mother giving a glowing reference for Meghan.  She is very careful to leave a decent interval between the time of Cory breakup and seeing Harry, I can’t help but recall that CDAN blind about paying off ex boyfriends not to spill.
“Somewhat surprisingly, however, [Cory’s mother] says she and Meghan remained in contact by text and email, even after she had started dating Harry. She is therefore able to shed some light on the mystery of when one relationship ended and the next began.
Mrs Vitiello surmises that Meghan and Cory had been apart  for about three months before she first met Harry.”
This time frame does not square with ANY other estimation I have seen and cynical ol’ me suspects that she was trotted out to put paid to rumours just before the wedding.
Also, this article works out Meghan first leaked her relationship with Cory online, just as she did with Prince Harry.  That’s her M.O.
“In fact, when Meghan published that glowing review on her now-closed blog, The Tig, their romance might have been advancing apace. And when she asked Vitiello, in a Q&A-style interview accompanying the critique, how he relaxed of an evening – by eating ‘whatever my loving girlfriend brings me’, he replied – they were probably sharing an intimate joke.
Dropping hints about her romantic status on social media is something of a trademark for Meghan, who first indicated that rumours about her love for Prince Harry were true by posting an image of two spooning, smiley-faced bananas – a favourite fruit of his.
Certainly, the timing of that internet post in 2014 fits with what I’ve learned about Meghan’s secretive affair with the chef. For the review appeared on 10 July, 2014, and – in an exclusive interview – his mother Joanne Vitiello told me her son’s relationship with Meghan began around that time, after Meghan visited The Harbord Room with friends from Suits.
When she returned to the restaurant to celebrate her 33rd birthday with her castmates, on 4 August, 2014, her feelings for the tall, athletically built Cory were plain for all to see.”
Ref:  https://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/article-5598927/The-hunky-chef-Meghan-Markle-nearly-married.html
2.  'As a girl she had to pass frosty messages between her parents’: How Meghan Markle’s family life was scarred by racism, bankruptcy and bitter feuding as the future princess’s unseen photo album is revealed
Read the following recollection; this is the father Meghan treats with disdain.
“Before Doria brought the baby girl home from hospital, Thomas had made sure her bedroom was brightly decorated, and hung little angels and fairies in the bathroom.
Tom Jnr (who was then 14, and had come to live with them, along with his 16-year-old sister, Samantha) told me his father was so thrilled with his new baby that he would dance around with her wrapped in his beefy arms, and hold her up to the mirror so she could see him cuddling her.
When Meg was born, Dad was a changed man,’ he said. ‘She was his whole world. The look on his face was priceless. Dad would take so many pictures of Meggie, she must have been the most photographed baby in the San Fernando Valley! He must have about 50,000 pictures stashed away.”
Ref:  https://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/article-5573437/Meggie-marrying-prince-Whod-thunk.html
3.  In the “Hollywood to HRH:  DAVID JONES charts the rise and rise of Meghan Markle from humble beginnings to the woman who would win Prince Harry’s heart" article, there are a series of photos where child Meghan has her hair pulled by her nephew baby Thomas. In the last she is giving him a mean look.  This was VERY reminiscent of that incident with the three year old who touched Meghan’s hair in Croke Park Stadium in July 2018 but, now that she has to be very mindful of her image, Meghan can’t give him that same candid mean glare she did as a child.  She looked like she wanted to though!
Ref:  https://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/article-5573395/Hollywood-HRH-rise-rise-Meghan.html
4.  Why Meghan dumped me, by the first boy she kissed:  She was 13 when she dated Joshua Silverstein - a romance that ended abruptly when he abandoned her at a cinema, so what does he remember?
Ref:  https://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/article-5573791/Why-Meghan-dumped-boy-kissed.html
5.  What IS the truth about Meghan and the ice hockey hunk? The bride-to-be has been associated with some VERY eligible men - including a sports star and a Hollywood actor
Ref: https://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/article-5634531/So-truth-Meghan-ice-hockey-hunk.html

Throw in the education and other opportunities and I am certain that Meg should be deeply ashamed. Meanwhile Samantha and Tom Jr. had to kind of watch Meg get all the kudos and go figure, people wonder where some of the resentment came from.

Sometimes it's better for siblings to put on blinders and think about their own lives. Samantha and Tom could do things on their own; they are two different individuals.  There are jealous siblings everywhere. I think Tom and Samantha should look to their own lives. Isn't Sam having issues with her daughter? Why not resolve them and work on resolving their differences.  Maybe Tom and Samantha had issues with their father doting on their much younger sibling. But IMO they are only hurting themselves. If Sam wanted to reconcile, she'd not go rushing to the press even calling her new brother in law nasty names.

What Kate Middleton Could Learn From Meghan Markle
Kate Middleton returns to royal duties from maternity leave this week. Will she and Prince William lift anything from the playbook of new top royal pin-ups, Meghan and Harry?
It was strangely jarring, last weekend, to see Kate Middleton peering out of the front pages of Britain’s Sunday newspapers.

Dressed in a crisp cornflower blue Catherine Walker coat dress with her hair tucked neatly under a floral headpiece, Kate was pictured smiling and laughing with friends at the wedding of her friend, Sophie Carter.

Kate was shepherding her two elder children, Prince George and Princess Charlotte, who were immaculately dressed as pageboy and bridesmaid, into St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church in Norfolk, just down the road from Kate and William’s massive country home on the Sandringham Estate.

Her attendance at the wedding was a private affair. But then, Kate has been almost entirely absent from public life since the birth of her third child, Prince Louis, a few weeks before Prince Harry’s wedding in May.

Her public engagements since the birth of Louis can be counted on one hand; she has attended the Trooping of the Color (the Queen’s official birthday) in June, the celebrations for the 100th anniversary of the RAF and the men’s and women’s Wimbledon tennis finals.

Maternity leave might at first seem an odd concept when applied to royal duties, but few would begrudge Kate the opportunity to spend a few months with her kids without having to think about hair, make-up, speeches and outfits.

Even fewer would argue that Kate should go on extended worldwide tours right now, as Queen Elizabeth did when Charles was a toddler.

That said, Kate’s withdrawal from public life was so sudden and so complete that it could hardly go unnoticed. In particular, her non-appearance in a major documentary about how the queen is handing over to the younger generations much responsibility for the Commonwealth did look rather peevish, and attracted some comment.

A half hour sit down with a camera crew for a TV show about your grandmother-in-law seems a not-unreasonable ask of anyone, even a new parent.

Predictably, perhaps, without Kate’s presence the documentary became a celebration of Meghan, who was only too happy to allow her emotional reunion with her wedding dress to be filmed, and herein lies a vivid illustration of what might happen when Kate returns to active duty next week (just in time, some might say), visiting a London school.

Any photographer who works the royal beat will tell you that Kate is as unhelpful a subject as Meghan is helpful. When Kate steps out of a car, she almost always chooses the non-photographer side, when she passes the bank of photographers, she speeds up, flicks her hair and looks the other way.

It is perhaps understandable (if counter-productive) that the royals don’t feel it’s appropriate to stop and pose for photos. The Queen doesn’t, but she doesn’t with grace; there has never been any feeling among the royal press pack that her behavior is remotely petty or malicious in the way that Kate’s (and William’s, it should be added) is interpreted.

But Meghan works the press at her engagements like the screen star she was long before she married Harry. She waves from the car as she approaches. She gets out on the right side. She comes over to the press pen, and while she does not pose, she pauses, hovers even, which is super-helpful to the snappers. And, miracle of miracles, she has even got her husband to cheer up a bit too.

She’s also attentive to small touches connecting her to a narrative of normalcy. This week, a small section of the internet went into paroxysms after Meghan closed her own car door, citing it as evidence that she really is a new and approachable kind of royal.

The crazy reaction also showed how haughty and out of touch William and Kate have become.

When Kate disappeared from public view, a few weeks before the birth of Prince Louis, there was no reason to suspect any other attitude would ever be necessary.

Kate was shepherding her two elder children, Prince George and Princess Charlotte, who were immaculately dressed as pageboy and bridesmaid, into St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church in Norfolk, just down the road from Kate and William’s massive country home on the Sandringham Estate.

Her attendance at the wedding was a private affair. But then, Kate has been almost entirely absent from public life since the birth of her third child, Prince Louis, a few weeks before Prince Harry’s wedding in May.

Her public engagements since the birth of Louis can be counted on one hand; she has attended the Trooping of the Color (the Queen’s official birthday) in June, the celebrations for the 100th anniversary of the RAF and the men’s and women’s Wimbledon tennis finals.

Maternity leave might at first seem an odd concept when applied to royal duties, but few would begrudge Kate the opportunity to spend a few months with her kids without having to think about hair, make-up, speeches and outfits.

Even fewer would argue that Kate should go on extended worldwide tours right now, as Queen Elizabeth did when Charles was a toddler.

Report: Harry and Meghan’s App-Fueled Sex Life

How Meghan Markle’s Mom Took Royal Center Stage
Charles did not benefit from his mother’s workaholism. In one authorized biography he bitterly recalled a childhood during which the nursery staff, not his 'emotionally reserved' parents, were the people who “taught him to play, witnessed his first steps, punished and rewarded him, helped him put his first thoughts into words.”

Old-school tradition still reigns at the palace, including when it comes to gender roles.

As Robert Lacey, the author and historical consultant for the Netflix series The Crown, told the Daily Beast: “Kate's main job now is raising her children. Few things could be more important so far as the future of the monarchy is concerned. These are the crucial developmental years for her children.”

That said, Kate’s withdrawal from public life was so sudden and so complete that it could hardly go unnoticed. In particular, her non-appearance in a major documentary about how the queen is handing over to the younger generations much responsibility for the Commonwealth did look rather peevish, and attracted some comment.

A half hour sit down with a camera crew for a TV show about your grandmother-in-law seems a not-unreasonable ask of anyone, even a new parent.

“Any photographer who works the royal beat will tell you that Kate is as unhelpful a subject as Meghan is helpful”
Predictably, perhaps, without Kate’s presence the documentary became a celebration of Meghan, who was only too happy to allow her emotional reunion with her wedding dress to be filmed, and herein lies a vivid illustration of what might happen when Kate returns to active duty next week (just in time, some might say), visiting a London school.

Any photographer who works the royal beat will tell you that Kate is as unhelpful a subject as Meghan is helpful. When Kate steps out of a car, she almost always chooses the non-photographer side, when she passes the bank of photographers, she speeds up, flicks her hair and looks the other way.

It is perhaps understandable (if counter-productive) that the royals don’t feel it’s appropriate to stop and pose for photos. The Queen doesn’t, but she doesn’t with grace; there has never been any feeling among the royal press pack that her behavior is remotely petty or malicious in the way that Kate’s (and William’s, it should be added) is interpreted.

But Meghan works the press at her engagements like the screen star she was long before she married Harry. She waves from the car as she approaches. She gets out on the right side. She comes over to the press pen, and while she does not pose, she pauses, hovers even, which is super-helpful to the snappers. And, miracle of miracles, she has even got her husband to cheer up a bit too.

She’s also attentive to small touches connecting her to a narrative of normalcy. This week, a small section of the internet went into paroxysms after Meghan closed her own car door, citing it as evidence that she really is a new and approachable kind of royal.

The crazy reaction also showed how haughty and out of touch William and Kate have become.

When Kate disappeared from public view, a few weeks before the birth of Prince Louis, there was no reason to suspect any other attitude would ever be necessary.

But returning to the fray five months later, Kate will find a very different landscape. Yes, there was massive excitement about Harry and Meghan’s impending wedding when she left front-line duties, but it was widely assumed that Meghan-mania would die down and things would soon return to normal.

That very definitely has not happened.  :bored: The public's sick of them, especially Meghan.

Meghan has transfoormed our expectations of how a royal can behave.  ??? Like Soho House girl trash?

Imagine taking a few months off work and coming back to find your bosses had hired a new person in a job very similar to yours, who was rather better at it than you, and seemed to enjoy all the stuff you hated—and they had also moved all the office furniture around.  :cookie:

That is what awaits Kate.

Most observers suspect that Kate’s response to the Meghan factor will be to double down on her rather boring image, and position herself as ‘the serious one’ in a future-queen role. 

“But they are all actually being true to themselves. Meghan is a star, an actress and she loves the limelight. Kate is more self-effacing, private and shy. Harry can afford to be a bit of a clown, his role is very different from William’s.”

But, Junor says, while it’s all good for now, adjusting long-term to the new dynamic will be key, especially if Harry and Meghan’s popularity continues to vastly outstrip that of the more senior couple: ‘The danger is William and Kate might get their noses put out of joint if they feel their activities are being ignored.”   :bored: They've spent over 7 years bascically doing nothing, so it's a little too late now to get their crap together. They've both showed that they'll be useless in teir oles as king and queen consort. All I can say is long live the queen.  :cookie:

That seems unlikely. There is still huge interest in William and Kate, but they may be wise to learn some new tricks from Harry and Meghan.

https://www.thedailybeast.com/what-kate-middleton-could-learn-from-meghan-markle?ref=home

Harry and Meghan are celebrities with a little royal on Harry's part, who aren't taken seriously as they're said to be partying at Soho House, and her continuing to merchandise, hog the sotlight and projects like the cookbook as well as globalist dream. Wills and Waity are the royal couple, although I still look at Waity as a lazy commoner, who needs to show what royalty can be in the social media age and post Brexit, to keep the monarchy fresh and interesting to the new generation, to raise awareness and help causes that'll make a difference to people, to fly the British flag and British values.

Meghan Markle ‘IDOLISED’ Ivanka Trump - shock claim in royal book
MEGHAN MARKLE, Duchess of Sussex, idolised Ivanka Trump, the daughter of US President Donald Trump, it has been claimed.
The former actress - who married Prince Harry in May - admired Ms Trump, royal author Andrew Morton has revealed in his book Meghan: A Hollywood Princess.

Mr Morton said: "Before Donald Trump had entered the race for the presidency, one of [Meghan's] female idols was businesswoman Ivanka Trump, who had her own jewellery and clothing line.

"She was thrilled when Ivanka agreed to fill in her simple questionnaire for Tig Talk.

"More thrilled when she accepted her invitation to meet for drinks and dinner the next time Meghan was in New York."

In the book, the royal author includes a passage from The Tig, Meghan’s defunct lifestyle blog.

Meghan said Ms Trump appears to have the “formula for success” in the post.

The Duchess said: "Don't get me started on her jewellery collection: the late-night 'window shopping' I have done on my computer, snuggled up in my bed with a glass of wine, staring longingly at the beautiful designs.

"And there are the shoes, the home collection, the clothing and the natural extension of her brand with a kids' collection - a smart choice given that she is now a proud mama.

"When we have drinks, I will make sure I order whatever she does - because this woman seems to have the formula for success (and happiness) down pat."

It comes as Meghan and Harry revealed new details on Thursday about their upcoming visit to Australia, Fiji, Tonga and New Zealand from October 16 to 31.

The trip will be the first overseas tour the couple have made since their wedding.

In a statement, Kensington Palace said: “Across this sixteen day tour, Their Royal Highnesses' programme will focus on youth leadership, and projects being undertaken by young people to address the social, economic, and environmental challenges of the region.”

The visit will also focus on environment and conservation efforts as well as the Invictus Games Sydney 2018, the statement said.

I don't know why all people of the Trump family are so demonized, what is wrong with Ivanka? I can see why anyone would idolize her, and there's nothing wrong with that: she's beautiful, has (had) her own (then successful) business, husband & kids (with the impression of "having it all", good hubby, beautiful & healthy kids, flourishing business, good social life & status), she's pretty smart and finished her education at a school that lets people only in based on merit/ intelligence and not based on money/ family name/ "legacy", has good style & taste...

Besides, this is talking before her father became the p of the US.

Also we don't know what these people are like in real life, what are C Clin & Mich Oba really like? You can't conclude the potential for friendship based on political stance.

^^ Yeah, imo pretty much spot on.

Also, Ivanka was in the fashion business, an area Murky worked towards (along with "lifestyle") as well, therefore a common interest/ career (plan) was there and with that in mind it makes sense that Murky looked towards Ivanka. A successful billionaire's daughter married into another influential & rich family (who also changed faith when she married, though Ivanka doesn't seem to be a faith-hopper) with social status and influence.

Even now I don't see anything wrong with liking/ "looking up to" Ivanka.

Ivana is also a woman to look up to, esp for someone like Murkleson: married very well, divorced with a huge settlement, and built a mega business afterwards. Ivana is an inspiration to any divorcée.

Meghan Markle shoots up annual power list to be named the second most influential person in London - behind only Home Secretary Sajid Javid  ???
Home Secretary Sajid Javid was today named as the most influential Londoner - followed by Meghan, Duchess of Sussex.
The Progress 1000 list, compiled by the London Evening Standard, also featured Metropolitan Police Commissioner Cressida Dick in sixth place.
They are joined by Mobo Award-winning rapper Stormzy and London Mayor Sadiq Khan, with the full list of 1,000 people set to be revealed at 9pm tonight.
The Standard praised Mr Javid's appointment as Home Secretary in April as 'the most dramatic rise yet in a political career that took off only eight years ago'.

The newspaper also told how Meghan had been 'embraced as a senior royal', in an impressive achievement for the 'daughter of an African-American social worker'.  :bored:
In addition it pointed out how the 37-year-old's spectacular wedding to Prince Harry at Windsor Castle in May 'made refreshing breaks with royal tradition'.

The advisers to the judging panel included journalist David Cohen, social entrepreneur Natalie Campbell, writer Catherine Mayer, commentator Sophie Wilkinson and filmmaker Nikesh Shukla.

Standard editor George Osborne said: 'Our Progress list this year celebrates the diversity of Londoners — the brilliant people, some born here and others who have moved here, who together make our city so exciting.

'It is a roll call of talent and a rebuff to all those who want to shut Britain off from the world and close our doors to the future.'

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-6261287/Meghan-Markle-shoots-annual-London-power-list.html

She’s on the list because she’s been embraced by the British royal family whilst all of the others on the list have talent in the arts and political achievements. Oh, it’s because she’s part black.  bignono
Interesting that she’s listed like this:
Meghan, Duchess of Sussex

Interesting that the comments were stopped over a hour ago. The DM is moderating comments and the ones that were posted wasn’t good but honest.

Maybe that’s good for the royal family if those judges who came up with this list see someone like Meghan being accepted by them. Maybe now those liberals like them will leave  the royal family alone and stop calling them elitist and out of touch. IMO, her being given this much leeway and that God awful wedding was to play into the liberals hands; to change their image a bit in the post Brexit UK.

An article on the Princess Eugenie wedding.  Putting here because there are some truly dire photos of murky in it, and boy does she look fugly.

Do look at the full article, bottom link.  Some of the photos are odd, she looks as though she has been photoshopped in somehow.  Could be very wrong, but weird anyway  -  it looks as though in every photo with her in it she is "in your face", they seem to have highlighted her somehow and she is the highspot of the photos.  Very strange.

The photographs in that article look very photoshopped. You'd think while they were there, they'd do something about her hairdresser.

Why doesn't she have someone in to do her hair? Even average people who won't be photographed all day oftentimes get there hair done before a wedding, even if they aren't in the bridal party.

Look at this one, defo looks photoshopped in here.  Just noticed something. Murky is stood further back that council cath and Sophie, and yet her face is larger than the other too and if you look, much clearer than cc and Sophie.  Kept looking at it and the penny finally dropped.  And who is she looking at, the guy "in front" of her is facing forward with his back to her, she is not looking at the two women.  The rf must really think the public are lacking brain cells and blind is all I can say.  If you look at the second link, in the photo cc and Sophie are talking, same position as the murky photo, but where is murky???  Gives you a good laugh if nothing else.

Ivanka is an idle rich kid who lived off her father - Chelsea is actually a wise, intelligent person who didn't live off a corrupt family. That said - hope it's Ivanka and her kind who don't befriend the royals. She is just as bad as Markle in terms of character. Both of them are spoiled Daddy girls who got a lot more in life than they ever deserved or worked for. Clearly not good role models for anybody. Both as plastic as their bad physical work and personalities.

Markle emulates bad women like that and if she hopes to carry those bad values and low standards to the RF, she will meet with continuing criticism. Little wonder she is so reviled and hated.

I'll say that what will happen is that after the 22 hour flight back to the UK Harry and Meghan will have a few days rest and then it will be the Remembrance Day Service and the run up to it in which Harry takes part. Plus, after that it is probably the Sussexes turn to turn up to see The Royal Variety Show this year. I think the Cambridges did it last year.

She needs to follow the rules though and clearly she’s not. Then again, the royal family didn’t follow protocol in how she was fast tracked in and was given allowances that no royal bride before was ever given so it’s quite stupid on their part if they expect her to follow their rules. It’s quite a head scratcher why Harry would be interested in this vapid narc who only did one off charity trips to boost her image and to make her cv/resume look well rounded as an actress/humanitarian and feminist/activist. All actresses do this, so Meghan’s nothing out of the ordinary. There’re articles that are rightly critical of her behavior on the holiday tour. The royal family and Harry have some explaining to do regarding havingvthis woman represent the crown and the UK because this is quite nuts.

Unfortunately, the family can't be voted out. And the one chosen to be the next monarch has been the first born male (now it's either male or female first born). The first one could not be as competent as the others so the structure is a problem.

Meghan is not an actress anymore, she signed up with the royals to work for them  when she married Harry

Her C.V. is on the official royal family page and it does not include "feminist/activist".

She can learn from experience. If she shunted away some place because the royals listen to those articles (by some people who don't like her in the first place) she can't learn from experience. So it's a catch 22 situation.

Harry and Meghan were assigned this tour. They don't go around picking out tours for themselves the Queen's courtiers work on a royal calendar that is published and they are assigned although they might have some leeway on the patronages.

I think there is such a thing as constructive criticism but I don't think the articles that talk about her physical features in a bad way are constructive because there's not much that can be done there. When I see criticism about her nose shape, it gets into Kardashian territory which is not a good t hing.

Sorry, but any public figure supported by tax dolllars, including those notvoted in, are subject to any and all criticisms no matter how it’s stated.  The fact that the People have no voice in their placement and privilege will always bring resentment with it.  No free lunches here, suck it up or step down.

Post by: sandy on October 31, 2018, 02:05:47 pm
As I said this is not a one off for her. She is learning. She got married a few months ago. And yes, there is such a thing as constructive criticism. And courtiers notice these things and this can be applied to her further improvement and practice.

If she does not practice she can't learn.

And yes, the constructive criticism is good for her. How to dress better, more appropriately, what not to do or say, and study up on protocol.

There is room for improvement and it's good if she can learn and improve. She can't if she's pushed out.

And as I said, the structure of the institution does not allow for people to be re-elected or voted out.

^Too bad.  She married into an unelected, publicly funded position.  She has no say so in what people say about her.  If she doesn't like it, or people don't like it, then have them get off the dole, get jobs and truly be "normal".  Then and only then would she have a right to fight back or state her views or defense.  About the best she can do is jump on the anti cyber bullying train but that's been played by everyone with few if any results.

Personally, I think not having a voice for her many outrages will bother her more than anything else. I'm not sure she can even vote in the UK or USA.  Maybe for the US midterms.

All I can manage is this Forum.  And unless somebody says something that is threatening or stating they've done something illegal without documentation, it's not against our rules.  Her appearance is open to debate.

Is Meghan Markle Allowed to Vote in the Midterm Elections Now That She's a Royal?

As she powered towards the finishing line of her 16-day tour Down Under last week, Meghan Markle made a passionate speech about women’s right to vote.

Now, as America goes to the polls in Tuesday’s crucial midterm elections, has the Duchess of Sussex carried out her right to vote back in the U.S.?

Meghan, 37, who is currently going through the years-long process of applying for British citizenship, can still vote in her home country. And her speech last week echoed what she had written on her former lifestyle blog, The Tig, back in November 2016, when the former Suits star spoke out about the importance of voting in a post titled, “Because You Must.”

“The right to vote is something for which blood, sweat, and tears have been shed; the struggle was endless for us to have this liberty,” wrote Meghan, who was filming her legal drama in Toronto at the time.

Kate has a finer face than Meghan (or Chelsy for this matter). With make-up Kate looks much better than Meghan. At her wedding, it was obvious how Meghan is a plain-looking woman, at least, that's which i saw.

I think a lot of men are (for some reason) increasingly stupid these days; they mistakenly think you can reason with the out of control or deranged and clearly neither prince took a hard look at the info that security surely showed them. You can't fix narcs, you can't reason with them, and you can't convince them to back off. The only way to deal with them is to lock up securely and also consult with police and protect yourself. It's ugly, but clearly that is the reality. I believe Harry's friends who introduced them thought Meg would just be a temporary fling, a fun time in bed, but the crazy wench is smarter. I sometimes think Harry's friends must be dumbfounded that a fun girl in bed managed to get the ring (despite the fact that it did end up happening with Camilla and Kate and other women throughout history).

IMO one thing that ruined MM’s looks, at least for me, is that she had so much work done on her face; work that was obviously intended to take away the appearance of her natural ethnicity.   Women of color can be so strikingly beautiful, but not once they start with nose surgery et al.  Same goes for women of any color.

Women need to accept who they are.

For the same reason that a person with chicken legs would wear a mini dress out in public -- no conscious awareness of how they actually appear.

Her nose turned out that way when the surgery was done. Maybe she wanted it or maybe not, but she kept it that way. I think she had her father's big nose. Her mom's nose is not bad.

He nose, hair, cheek bones and complection were ethnic. Looking at her pre-surgery days - she looked ok.  Racially ambiguos people look intetesting and most of the time a really pretty. She threw thst away to mold into the perfect jewish wife /Hollywood starlet, then molded into Corry's ex, then to Diana. All in all, I don't like plastic and plastic doesn't look good on her but it's too late to go back to what she was before.

This is an interesting snippet of Meggles' narcissistic behavior.   At 00:24, notice her little cutsey smile over the shoulder and wiggle to Camilla, as if she were twelve.   Then notice how Camilla loses her smile and kind of moves off, perhaps toward the door to the garden.  Meggles sharply turns and gives her an up-and-down look and then turns to Harry, touching his arm as if to say "Don't we need to go out, too?" [She wants to make sure to always be in the middle of the action].    Charles kind of glances over at her.  He is not looking happy, either, and let's not forget that after 20 minutes, Charles sends them away.

Camilla is in no position to be high and mighty. She should be very thankful she was allowed in. IMO anyway. But Charles needs to promote the happy families spin now so all the articles about how well everybody gets along seems to be pushed and a current theme. It seems to me his spin is that Harry gets along better with him than William does. Some weird stuff going on behind the scenes.

^^Yes, she did and then she moved to the side so that the cameras capture Meg and her sizing look.
^ I disagree. I think Camz is in the perfect position to be high and mighty. If Diana didn't oust her she would have happily been the mistress with perks. Just like Philip had a separate family but no one dared oust his mistresses. Camz is in the perfect position to judge Megan because she's in it for love, not for titles, not for fame while Meg is a bad actress not only on the tiny show she was at but in real life too and can't fake an in love look. Same with Harry - terrible actor.

As for Charles needing Meg for his happy family, please. He booted her off his garden party. Will spilled that KP will be booting the duo during their very successful Aussie tour and after yet another see through dress. Yes, DM and Sun print how happy they all are with this narc invader but the reality seems to be much different. Looking at the twitter video again - yep, Camz is a better actress.

Yep.  Little Orphan Meggie rose to the top using only her wits and charm. She giggled her way into people's hearts.  :laugh: She may only be a Duchess, but she's queen in her own warped world.

Post by: Kuei Fei on November 11, 2018, 07:42:46 am
I think her giggling is a way for her emotional immaturity to express itself; like a lot of women who suppress their own growth and development to accomplish a goal (be it landing a man or getting a movie role or some other goal) she just shut herself down emotionally and decided to just wait until after she was where she wanted to be to continue her development. I am certain she was in fact more than a little mechanical during her climbing years.

Post by: sandy on November 11, 2018, 11:40:27 am
^^Yes, she did and then she moved to the side so that the cameras capture Meg and her sizing look.
^ I disagree. I think Camz is in the perfect position to be high and mighty. If Diana didn't oust her she would have happily been the mistress with perks. Just like Philip had a separate family but no one dared oust his mistresses. Camz is in the perfect position to judge Megan because she's in it for love, not for titles, not for fame while Meg is a bad actress not only on the tiny show she was at but in real life too and can't fake an in love look. Same with Harry - terrible actor.

As for Charles needing Meg for his happy family, please. He booted her off his garden party. Will spilled that KP will be booting the duo during their very successful Aussie tour and after yet another see through dress. Yes, DM and Sun print how happy they all are with this narc invader but the reality seems to be much different. Looking at the twitter video again - yep, Camz is a better actress.

Charles wants the image of happy families I doubt he would be "booting out" his daughter in law. His spin now talks about the great dad who was so supportive and close to Meghan. He probably pays big bucks for the PR and would not want to jeopardize his image of "loveable" old guy who  has mellowed out.

WIlliam and Harry may have separate offices which I think is a good thing, then both could do different things and have different causes.

Camilla is a better "nothing" and she will see it if she IMO outlives Charles.

I think Meg is going to become the Marie Antoinette of this generation; the entire system of pre-revolutionary France was corrupt, but Marie Antoinette was the scapegoat, the epitome of the mess the nation's finances were in. Marie's own spending and neglect of her duties didn't help as well, especially her flouting protocol. Meg is literally playing right into the hands of any republican propagandist and while the entire BRF is an excessive mess, Meg is the the one everyone is focusing on. However, the BRF isn't aware that leaving Meg to fend for herself won't help since if Meg goes down, all the rest of them go down with her.

She haunts the London streets early mornings and the lay people are unaware that Diana 2nd is walking amongst them. She wants to understand her subjects.  :June:

It's hard work coming down from one's high, mighty position and understand the unwashed masses. She's helping the RF in ways we all haven't been able to appreciate - she's a link to a new generation, or maybe just to a few hung-over partyers that have been forgotten by an uncaring society.

^^I've worked with jerks like that, KF.  Always, always, always, Middle Management types that accomplish nothing other than disdain from those who actually get the work done.  The highest level execs are up at ungodly hours, too, but are actually in control of the issues or decision makers.  People like Sparkles, trying to impress everyone with all kinds of flying text edicts, questions and 4am emails are nothing but time wasters and royal pains in the a$$.

Once in a great while they get "promoted out" to be someone else's headache but there's a sell by date on this dance to the bottom.  Resentment brings them down every singe time.

 :flower: I can totally relate, Yooper. I could write a book on middle-management suck-ups and idiots - dealing with the issue through grievance right now.  :bat: Yet, they are really hard to fight, they have upper management on their side and will fight tooth and nail to deny promotions to worthy, hard-working employees. The suck-ups really do get ahead - they win the battles, but it's up to the rest of us to win the wars.

But that is a little off topic - but relating to Markle, she really wants to get ahead based on other's people's merits. Those who truly help the down-trodden; who put in the countless hours doing the truly charitable work, get short-changed and MeAgain expects to take all the glory. She's not fooling anybody and I doubt other royals who value their patronages are going to give them up if say Ms. Narc wants to take them over.  bignono

I think that the problem with Meg is that she hasn't stayed in one place, at one job, with one man for longer than 2 years, except for when she haven't received what she wanted from the role she plays. Charities need dedication, or so I've heard.

Also, I am not sure brf will support her jet setting idea of being part of a charity. M is in UK now, she should get a UK project to support.

Some comments:
SANDRA, Paris, France, 4 hours ago
She will not put herself in front of Camilla, she is not crazy, she knows that she would not make the weight. By cons she will try to manipulate Charles to get what she wants, because she knows she has no chance with William and Kate. In the near future, it will be the women (Kate, Camilla, Meghan, the queen, and Kate's mom) who will play the chess game, the boys (Charles, William, Harry) are going to be just spectators !! !

SteffiM, San Francisco, United States, 5 hours ago
The announcement that Wills an Harry are forming separate offices is a red flag things are not going smoothly. Then the story just released that the Queen was ticked when Meghan demanded a tiara and Harry pitched a fit when Queen said NO. I bet the Royal insiders despise this pushy woman already.

KB, England, United Kingdom, 5 hours ago
Sounds to me like Meghan has always got her own way, since childhood. She is arrogant enough to believe that she can 'shake up' the British Royal Family with a click of the finger and a nod of the head. Who does she think she is? I resent every penny spent on this chancer, who believes herself to literally be better than anyone else. The Queen and Charles need to man up and put her back in her box. She appears to be out of control and Harry seems like a frightened little mouse who is terrified of losing her, so he lets her run riot.

JackkieB, BURTON, United Kingdom, 26 minutes ago
It seems obvious Harry and Meghan have been told that they cannot move next door to William and Kate. The story that the Gloucesters won't move and Harry and Meghan want to get away from KP anyway are spin. So what has she done that makes her such a persona non grata? Add to that them being seated almost behind the curtains, and her very publicly put on a separate balcony on Remembrance Day, plus her aide leaving abruptly yet being highly praised by the Royals? Meghan is definitely being given frozen out.

blackcat, Sutton Coldfield, United Kingdom, 3 hours ago
It could be that the freezing out has already started, Prince Harry and Meghan were all set to move into a large apartment next to William and Kate, the minor royals living there were supposed to be happy to down size, to make way, now that's all off, supposedly they don't want to move after all, or, is it that William and Kate don't want to live next to Harry and his wife, if stories of Meghan upsetting Kate are to be believed , such a shame as William and Harry and Kate had always seemed to get on so well.

From what i read i dont think harry and meghan will like st james palace...

Meghan’s American tv documentary airs 22nd November, 9:00pm.
Revealed: How Meghan spends DAYS preparing her speeches and insists on writing them herself rather than leaving the work to royal aides
* ABC News special Meghan’s New Life: The Real Princess Diaries airs tomorrow
* Royal editor Omid Scobie reveals how Meghan carried handwritten notes in Fiji
* Wrote speech on women's education herself and spent days preparing
* Duchess is described as 'feminist princess of our dreams' in documentary
And it's not just the preparation that's unusual, but also the subject matter Meghan chose to tackle in Fiji and later in an another speech in Wellington where she spoke about women's empowerment.
Vanity Fair's Michelle Ruiz told the documentary: 'In these times and for this family it is pushing the envelope to give speeches on feminism.
'It's certainly something the Queen doesn't do, nor does Kate Middleton do. Meghan is the feminist princess of our dreams.'
https://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/article-6413313/How-Meghan-spends-DAYS-preparing-speeches.html
Basically, she’s a narc who’s taking orders from no one. She’s operating outside of the royal family and the Firm.
Just looking at the video that’s in the article tells me this should be comedy gold. She’s a celebrity who’s doing what celebrities do and that’s basically what the commentators on the program are responding to and not a member of the royal family who have to stay neutral in a lot of things.

I wonder if Meg and her fans are aware that she can make all the speeches she wants, but she will never be taken seriously by those in power. She has no effect on policy and she has no effect on what decisions are made. I am dead sure that she is unaware of this, but one day awareness will take over. She no longer even has her UN position and no longer has any chance of getting one at a better level, or even her old one.

She paid someone to write her blog. But that was small time and she may want control of her world speeches. But most likely she gets help on those even if she wants to control the speech more than others. I would guess there is much fluff to them as  I've heard her talk and am not impressed with her content. Beware of her, she says one thing and acts like another.  That is mixed messages to the public. That is never good.

Post by: windsor2 on November 22, 2018, 02:33:51 pm
I don't see her being part of the royal family as she's done her own thing since day one. Maybe they allow it to see how a modernized, in a tacky celebrity way, would go over with the public since that's what people want she they say that the royal family needs changing. She's a low rent woman who's done nothing of worth since she arrived on the scene. Her book launch was a failure as it didn't reach expectations and the pr games that she plays further inks the royal family into the gutter as the casual viewer sees her as part of the family. Now Time magazine has the nerve to actually consider her worthy to be Person of the Year. She's done nothing to derserve that consideration because it's the royal family who's allowing her behavior.
I don't understand the fawning that Americans have over the royal family. It makes no sense since there was a war to get away from all of that and be independent from British rule. Often times the American press gets it all wrong just like they have with this special on Megahn that airs today. GMA had a segment regarding how Meghan's modernizing the monarchy.  :bored: If anything, the royal family's using her and her tacky celebrity ways to get the attention of the younger generation who now think the royal family's interesting. Now she looks more foolish trying to compete with Waity who's going to have the full protection and backing of the royal family and Briish press as she's the future of the monarchy, so it should be apparent that this floozy's time should be over and booted back to the states.

What these idiots don't get, is that it has lasted as long as it has BECAUSE of the fact that the rules and customs last. Same reason we have the US Constitution, it has proven that it works. Third, it's not and never will be Meg's place, or Harry's place to change things. Only the Sovereign and the Consort are allowed to make adjustments and even then, only to a limited effect without disrupting everyone else's lives and positions. I view the idea of modernizing the monarchy as a way of just MAKING everyone adjust their lives around the royal (as if they aren't the center of things enough as it is) and change to suit themselves, their wants and preferences and trivial needs. Meg wants to change the way things are done that make HER the center stage, not the more direct line and the rest of them (Harry and William) just want the taxpayer to support them while they party and give the middle finger to everyone around them.

"modern" and "monarchy" sure are oxymorons, but to be fair some steps can be taken, I have read the Dutch abolished curtseying for example. I never understood the claim that "the British are the most old fashioned of the [Western] monarchies", and then I saw how the others do it and then I was like "yep, now I get it".

On a whole though a monarchy doesn't belong into our world. It's a ridiculous and laughable thing.

No one person can change it, esp not someone down the pecking order like the spare's wife. And in a new twist: this spare's wife has the least understanding of what the monarchy is, due to being a gold digging foreigner. What the life as Winds means hit Diana hard and she was part of the system.

How can you be a feminist and married into the BRF please explain it to me.

Ask Megsy :laugh: :sigh:

^^^ Yes!!

One thing is for sure, she will help bring it down ultimately. When the Brits realize BRF are the biggest scam holding on to their power by the idea England's tourism will suffer somehow if they go, they will go. And having a trash person in the senior hold will only help people realize "Why Bother". Divine Right of rule is gone now forever with Waity and ESPECIALLY Murks in the bloodline. So there is no real good purpose when people wake up and realize that people will always tour Great Britian and the savings of taxes and gaining of the Crown Estates and income property will certainly put food on people's tables. But it will take time and time for Murks to pull many fast ones.

What these idiots don't get, is that it has lasted as long as it has BECAUSE of the fact that the rules and customs last. Same reason we have the US Constitution, it has proven that it works. Third, it's not and never will be Meg's place, or Harry's place to change things. Only the Sovereign and the Consort are allowed to make adjustments and even then, only to a limited effect without disrupting everyone else's lives and positions. I view the idea of modernizing the monarchy as a way of just MAKING everyone adjust their lives around the royal (as if they aren't the center of things enough as it is) and change to suit themselves, their wants and preferences and trivial needs. Meg wants to change the way things are done that make HER the center stage, not the more direct line and the rest of them (Harry and William) just want the taxpayer to support them while they party and give the middle finger to everyone around them.

I think it will devolve in Charles' reign and after. The super self indulgence he displayed with the many birthdays is only the beginning. There may not be a monarchy when George comes of age.

It is more and more embarrassing when royals try to preach to the public.

It is laughable about the tourism. I was telling this to an ex-patriot yesterday. WHO goes over to GB on vacation/holiday to see the BRF? NO ONE. Who ever sees the BRF when touring around the place? I have gone several times and went to school for a semester and never saw a member of the BRF. It didn't stop me from returning there. I have never heard of any friend/ worker or even stranger talking about how they saw any member of the BRF while traveling in England, Ireland, Scotland, etc., except the time I accompanied someone to an international  Highland Games event in Scotland who had an invitation through aristocratic friends to a party CHarles was attending. He was the acting Chief of our clan at the time and we were there for a convention of Scottish Chiefs and a festival not really touring although we did that too. At the festival, I arrived late and missed good old Charles's appearence. But I am the only one I know that even has a story like that. So no, it is clear that tourism will be strong without them and so will the taxpayers pocketbooks.

The British monarchy, like all other monarchies, have modernised every single century and even more often than that e.g. The Queen got rid of the debutante presentations of rich girls and replaced them with garden parties to allow a broader range of the country's population to be honoured.

She started doing walkabouts to have greater connection to the people rather than just driving past and waving. She meet with lepers in the 1950s and helped remove the stigma around them.

We don't still have to bow and curtsey - her decision that is wasn't necessary - along with walking backwards in her presence etc.

If the monarchy doesn't modernise then they will be in trouble. The Queen has done a lot of modernising but at with the advice of her children and grandchildren as well. It isn't just one person making the decisions about modernising but a family affair. They even had a group for many years - The Way Ahead Group - which was the Queen, her children and William discussing how to keep the monarchy relevant into the 21st century. Although it no longer has regular meetings the family still do discuss how to do things so that they are relevant.

If they don't remain relevant they will fall and the way that William and Harry do things, compared to Charles for instance, is different but also they were different to how the Queen and before her George VI and George V did things.

Of course she is desperate to forget; I am dead sure she only used her 'career' to advance herself socially and now that she's where she is, she wants to distance herself from the past as much as she can. She keeps trying to erase even her past marriage (wearing virginal white to her wedding and also trying to come across as demure).

Okay I went to Thanksgiving last night at my brother's and my son and his girlfriend were there. She had gone to Marlborough Girls' School for High School like I did. We were talking about girls' schools in L.A. and low and behold her close cousin had gone to Immaculate Heart during the Markles years and had been in a book club with her. The cousin wrote a book and Murks illustrated it. My future daughter in law (I hope) had talked to her coz about the Murks when she got engaged to Haza and apparently in high school, she was nice and very smart getting good grades. Her mom was around, not the dad, and the mom was smart as well. She ran into her from time to time prior to her departure to Canada and Suits and said she was very well spoken and always nice to her. So that is the pre royal Suits take from a high school classmate. I think she has a good side that has gone to recess in her head as she gained fame.

IMO, this documentry just cemented my view that she was deliberately chosen to play the race card; to have the royal family seen as inclusive to the younger generation who's now on this bent of calling everything racist that doesn't have a hint of color like the British royal family prior to this trollop. They bascally stated as much in the last five minutes of the pogram. I love it when André Leon Talley said she shouldn't bring any scandal.  :cookie:  Oops, too late.

I believe that is why the BRf have accepted her. This ex-patriot I was talking to said from what she hears the Brits were shocked the Queen allowed the marriage but accept times are changing and in her opinion like her. ( This is mainly according to her sister in law.) She also says Charles will abdicate which I know is not true absent some scandal ala murder level. So I take her thoughts as an ex with a grain of salt. But although Harry did not marry her for that reason, the BRF might have realized that it would be pr to keep them in power. If they were so caring about the people they would not pr the public and just step down and be who they really are. HM is compelled to do whatever to keep the Monarchy in place and I believe she is controlled by higher powers in control. And I am beginning to think they let the Murks get to Harry for a purpose as they figured he is attracted to her sorts. And I know he has a big natural affinity to Africa and the people there. She has gotten much more black looking since she joined the Royals and has made herself more plain to be a more adapted symbol of the masses.  And she uses it even with her enormous ego. So this is a plot of some sort because there are high stakes on keeping that family in place for the powers behind them. Radical I may sound, but I think it is true logically. I welcome opposite opinions.

The Queen doesn't interfere with marriages and at her advanced age, probably doesn't care. Charles will not abdicate, but I think his sons need to remove themselves from the Succession.

Funny how they get the support of the sugars, but it's they who are dragging the institution down. It's doubtful they like Markle more than anybody else - Harry hardly knew her, and the rest of the family of course would know her even less. They don't need a fame-seeking foreigner in their midst. She's a hindrance, not a benefit.

The one thing going, and this is only on a superficial level, is that she loves to hog the cameras and pretend she's working and helping the Monarchy. We know how lazy some of the others can be - the grandchildren are NOT pulling their weight. No Princess Annes amongst them looking out for the Monarchy and just getting things done without major fanfare.   :sigh:

Charles wants to play happy families and he did so with a vengeance this year. He is using the image of his escorting Meghan down the aisle in his media blast this year.

The royals standards have lowered so to me it is not "shocking" that Meghan was let in. No aristos would want Will or Harry so they married Kate and Meghan and CHarles was stuck with Camilla when he outed her. Will tried to marry an aristo but they did not want him.

CHarles also wants more grandchildren so he can get the "old duffer" photo ops with the children and he will probably have photo ops with Harry's child more than he could get with Kate's.

The only thing that has dragged the monarchy down is the so called 'fairy-tale' and I am certain that if the BRF had made sure Harry did more than party during his twenties, that they would be in a stronger position to actually maybe marry for more than PR. If Harry had chosen to do less partying in Vegas and wear less Nazi outfits, he would have been able to tell the press to stop trying to dictate his love life and he would have been bale to get Meg to bug off without being accused of racism. All Harry has had is his mother's luster and residual goodwill due to his (now faded) looks. I am certain that since PR is all he had left, he took it.

I watched that ABC special and I was scratching my head because its a bit too soon to talk about what Meg has done while in the BRF which is why they filled most of the hour special with stories of the Queen and Diana's accomplishments, because Meg doesn't have any...yet.

The only accomplishment so far was the tour and cookbook, oh, and of course her being non-white marrying in to a white family.  :wopedo:

The footage of the Australian Tour made my mother and I laugh at the way she was cupping her bump!  :laugh: My mom said she is so phoney.  :tehe:

I like what Toure said towards the end of the show, and I'm paraphrasing: "Its not like all of black people's problems are going to be solved because she is in the BRF now." AGREED!  :worship:

Well, if your skin color is your only accomplishment, this is very sad. The cookbook is a bust, it seems. There's funds raised for renovation of a kitchen that is leased in a mosque which is proven to train militants and in the end - God knows where the money is going. So, who is being funded really? The tour, if it was that successful, both Sucks wouldn't be banished from the castle grounds into the village that fast.

You know, if it comes out that money earned ends up in the hands of terrorists, that will finish the ducal couple for good. No other charity (unless forced) will work for them and second, it will finish the Invictus Games for good. Harry would not be able to host a Games that promotes injured veterans of wars caused by terrorists that Meg and Harry inadvertently funded via this book. No amount of PR could clean this up and I am sure Meg and Harry are playing with fire here.

Her color is the main point that she's where she is, imo. Not only that documentry kept stating it, the BBC ramed it down the viewer's throats from what I've read of the commentry on the wedding. I also think that her visit to the mosque and the cookbook has something to do with her being fast tracked int the total family. I think that the security services wanted to get information on what was going on in the mosque and went along with Meghan visiting there and setting up the book project. Harry's on the radar of Muslim extremist such as the one's that came from the mosque. I believe the company that did the renvation's is being struck off; closing shop. That's pretty odd to me. Harry just wanting to marry this strumpet wouldn't has the queen and sundry fast track her in and break protocol nless it was for a najor project, one being using her for diversity of the royal family to keep the African and Carribean countries interted in the royal family and the UK in order to trade with them post Brexit.
The dicumentry was an embarassment because of the black people fawning over a biracial woman who identifies herself as caucasion on her acting resume and only uses her black side to place the race card whenever it suits her. They acted like they inally have an ally in the royal family. It was really sad to watch because they're using race to push an agenda to make everything and everyone divers. It's a dumb way of thinking because it's closed minded. They seem to fail to recognize that that Harry's done more to help poc than Meghan will ever do. They fail to see Meghan for what she is, a social climber who onl as white friends and lovers and oly's around black people for prsuch as Serena and her so called humanitarian trips that she has pictures taken with black kids. They fail to realize that they're praising a less than medicore woman who they wouldn't looked at twice pripr to Harry.  bignono  This is why I really *despise* the push for diversity because any old thing's praised just because they have a bit of hue.  bignono

I can't bear to watch anything of hers but I gather from the comments, I find it fantastic the race thing is still being pushed. She has done nothing except go on a preplanned tour. Every senior Royal has done that for ages....big deal. She is nothing of the black culture here or anywhere the way she was raised and choices she made. She is only looking more black now since the time she was growing up.  This is all so fake it is sickening. But when Disclosure happens, this may change.

I think that's why Harry allegidly wanted the makeup artist to make sure she looks exactly like herself on the wedding day; use the right foundation instead of the darker one she uses to make herself look darker. She hates her black side because she's spent mney and time getting platic surgery and procedures to narrow down her ethnic features. Now again, she's using her black mum because she's been getting negative press for the book project for the kitchen that's housed in a mosque that's linked to terriost and she's not going to Africa with Harry. She's a very nasty piece of work indeed and as I've said, it's sicening that black and brown peole are praisng her as if she's done something.

It is foolish of them to think she will give them hope. Her whole I am part black routine is also BS especially what she said about Hollywood. Troian Bellesario, (pretty little liars) who went to Murks wedding as her hubby is in Suits is an example. My son went to school with her Kindergarden through Senior year in High School. They were best buddies young but grew apart in the teens. I got to know her parents a little bit. Her dad Donald was a T.V. produce mogul/ king of hit television shows and her mother a beautiful, classy, intelligent black actress. She is mixed, as she has lighter skin, but from a very upper class family and clearly black. So Troian is like Murks, bi-racial. DOES ANYONE EVER HEAR TROIAN TALK ABOUT RACE ISSUES or discrimination in Hollywood. Granted Troian is from TV royalty and raised with more class so her situation is different. BUt never does she comment on racial issues because she is bi-racial. THey are many others like that. Murks is just truly milking the issue and that will not help people.

I think Meg's view of discrimination is one where she feels there is a deeper reason other than a lack of talent that is the reason for her lack of success in that industry. I admit that many talented people don't get a big break, but frankly, I think Meg is untalented and clearly she simply isn't smart enough to maneuver her way around the industry politics and take risks that are needed to move along in film. She simply isn't special, but she's having problems accepting that her posh upbringing isn't one that entitles her to get an easy break into big roles and big pay. She just doesn't have the stamina or the talent or the smarts.

The royal editors and biographers and tabloid media is still a decade or three behind in terms of observing racial norms. I find it intriguing to see propaganda in action; I swear Goebbels would approve of the narrative and approve of the deluded enthusiasm that certain segments of the populace go along with as well. The latest 'documentary' is genuinely a way of showing an entire narrative being constructed literally from nothing. US and those outside the mainstream see this for the BS it is, but it is still intriguing to see how the tabloid media still persist.

Okay.  Let's randomly chat about what a liar Meggles is.  So, she puts out her stories that she will not be accompanying Harry to Zamiba [because narcissists cannot stand being left out of things] because she is "exhausted" and because if "zika fears".   Zambia called her on it and issued an official protest.

Megs has no idea who she's fooling around with with her games.  Being a member of the British Royal Family is not the same as being a two-bit actress in Hollywood.  This is a game she will not win.

I doubt she could make such a statement without cooperation of Harry and his family. She did not make any such public statement. She can't put stories out anymore without cooperation of the Firm. She could not even sneak one out. The protest should be issued to the RF. It is routine that spouses do not accompany Princes on tours all the time.

I don't think she can. She's a newbie. Even kate can't do it and she's been around since 2011 as a royal.

It is royal protocol that sometimes couples do separate tours. It is nothing "shocking." It would make no sense for her to complain because it is a matter of course for royal couples to go places together then split them up to go on separate tours.

The Sun is a notorious gossip paper.

I don't believe she would do it. if she looks out for herself she would not make any such rash moves. IMO anyway.

I don't think either Harry or Meghan "leaked" this to the Sun. Harry who was born to the Firm knows this is protocol and the tour was set up well in advance not overnight. It would not make any sense for either of them to all of a sudden make a statement "why" she wasn't going. Royal couples do get separate tours from time to time.

I don't know why the story was leaked but since the Murks makes such a big deal of showing in public how close and touchy feely they are and she did go pregnant on a massive overseas tour that she would want people to know why they are separating for this trip. It is just that zika did not stop her before so why now? Actually it makes perfect sense that Harry does some tours without her and she is father along in her pregnancy  which she did say she is tired as well as zika. That I know of this, this is his second African trip away from her since marriage. Funny, their second date was in Africa I thought or close to it and they went on a pre-honeymoon to Africa before announcing their engagement. She was SOOOOOOOOOOOOO involved in Africa which is one of the things she used to hook him as they have so much in common. Now she's ditched the place for the time being as is her M.O. once something loses its value to her,  OR...… Maybe he has some business there that she is not allowed to be around, and that could be almost anything. I have an active imagination so I won't speculate but it may not have to do with another woman necessarily.  I have a theory but I will keep it to myself.

Anybody with just the minimum study of the royals should notice that royal couples do go on separate tours. William and Kate have done so and it's standard procedure.

Sometimes thought there are "projections" that something is "wrong." It is not a case where they go to separate weddings which I admit would seem puzzling (e.g. Will going to Jecca's and leaving kate). But official royal tours have specific protocols and Harry is the one going. In future, Meghan very likely will have her turn to visit another country on tour without Harry.

I would not say she ditched Africa based on Harry being officially sent on this tour.

It is plain and simple that Harry was assigned this tour in advance and it is no slap to Meghan or to Africa. My take on it.

I agree with Fly that The Sun was reckless to say that Meg not going to Zambia was because of Zika. It was disrespectful to the country since they are not one of the countries with a Zika warning anyway, that-a would be Tonga and Fiji and she already went to those with no problem. The press should also know, as we all do, that royal couples go on separate tours.

The press is just so eager to talk about Meg that the fact that she is not going on a tour for them to talk about her mannerisms and fashion is driving them crazy.  :laugh:

I wonder which country will be Megs' first solo tour? Will it be an African or Caribbean commonwealth country?  :think: Or is that too obvious that she would be sent to a country with brown folks for her first solo tour?  :tehe:

@Sandy You have a point, but she didn't go the last time and I believe that she has shown up at things Harry had pre-scheduled prior to their marriage/engagement. So if she wanted to go, she would have demanded it and gone. I do think to her defense on this that doing another  tour pregnant is hard and she will not want to look fat in front of the cameras so often so she will be less seen deliberately until she delivers IMO. That is part of her vanity.

What a difference a year makes! Body language expert reveals how Meghan has gone from ‘in-love’ fiancée at her engagement photocall exactly 12 months ago – to a passionate public speaker and empathetic Duchess
Meghan Markle was still relatively unknown to the British public when she and Prince Harry stepped out hand-in-hand as a newly-engaged couple, exactly a year ago.

And now, experts have revealed how the former actress has gone from being Prince Harry's 'in-love' fiancee to showing her strengths as a confident public speaker and empathetic Duchess over the past 12 months.

Body language expert Judi James explained how Meghan presented herself and Harry as 'the new Hollywood-esque power couple on the block', as they posed for photographs outside Kensington Palace this time last year.

She described how the Duchess has since developed from a royal 'newbie', joining the Queen on an engagement in Cheshire just a month after her wedding, to a 'passionate' and effective campaigner in her own right.

Here, Judi - author of the Body Language Bible - tells FEMAIL what Meghan's body language has revealed about her over the past 12 months...

CHarles did not invite Jobson to watch him and listen to all he said. He is not an insider. Junor is the one closest to Charles and Camilla.

Writers do make things up or embellish. I think Jobson is one of them. The quote was about Meghan and had nothing to do with the Queen.


Title: Re: Duchess Meghan: News and Random chat 2018
Post by: dianab on November 28, 2018, 12:25:18 am
Jobson and his wife are very close to Charles - in fact, for decades. Penny Junor the same. Jobson in fact is as enamored of Charles as Penny! I think that American writer (Sallly whatever) who loathes Diana, in fact isnt a insider...

That Meghan quote was about the 'queen's row', no?


Title: Re: Duchess Meghan: News and Random chat 2018
Post by: sandy on November 28, 2018, 12:39:23 am
Junor is the closest, she actually vacationed with Camilla and they are seen together socially. She wrote the landmark Charles Victim or Villain over twenty years ago and continued her support of CHarles with many books since then.

Didn't the alleged Queen's row story get printed in the DM> Jobson wrote whatever Meghan wants Meghan gets claiming Charles said it.

I doubt she would get in a "row" with the Queen. That sounds very far fetched. Meghan is shrewd enough not to do that. And she did have a nice tiara.

Social media is how you reach people now, not with books.

Megan's SM games should be a clue to brf where things are happening now. Her PR is also fuelling how important she thinks she is with lines in the new Charmed show.

Princess Anne is not in line to succeed directly anymore and hasn't for some time. She has already established herself and has worked steadily for decades. It's not like Anne is new to this and married to the second son of the Prince of Wales.

^ Princess Anne is just as much in line to succeed as Harry is.  She is the monarch's only daughter and is the Princess Royal.

In any event, back to Chicken Legs.  I caught a snippet of her being interviewed on a late night show (American)  Fallon or Kimmel -- she's just all up into herself, wearing a halter top, mini-dress with those chicken legs, and of course she mentions the fact that she interned with the UN or an Embassy or something.  *yawn*.   So the host -- Fallon or Kimmel -- asks her:  "Do you speak Spanish?"   And Megs responds:  "I do now."

I can't bear to watch anything of hers but I gather from the comments, I find it fantastic the race thing is still being pushed. She has done nothing except go on a preplanned tour. Every senior Royal has done that for ages....big deal. She is nothing of the black culture here or anywhere the way she was raised and choices she made. She is only looking more black now since the time she was growing up.  This is all so fake it is sickening. But when Disclosure happens, this may change.

Don’t forget the gospel choir and revival tent preacher at the wedding!  If he had been her childhood pastor, that’s one thing.  Hmmm — so why do you suppose they picked HIM specifically? 

She is fake and her every move is calculated and contrived for maximum effect.

totally true and very contrived. I just don't get why more people don't notice but then again most people don't really care outside of the UK and some Commonwealth places. I get a "so what if she's contrived, who cares" from people. So I keep it to myself and here. She is so do as I say not as I do.

Exactly. I'm really trying to figure out the work she does that some speak of, especially that's apparently so much more work then Kate does.

There's nothing. In fact, her "work" looks just like Kate's. Nothing but appearances at black tie and dinner party type award givings and entertainment events that apparently is supposed to pass as work. Other than that she's doing much of nothing also.

Anyway, back to her speaking Spanish!   :sigh:    Go to 2:14 on this video:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-EM2xi5Jnd0

She specifically states that she speaks Spanish.  I'm thinking that if Meggs really could speak a language other than English and phone sex, that this would be trumpeted as something wonderful by her PR and she would be demanding trips to Spanish-speaking countries to show off.   Yes? 

And, oh, those stork legs!  Why she thinks showcasing that part of her body is doing her any favors is beyond me. . . . .
