Back to work! Harry and Meghan's first official engagement of the year will be a visit to Merseyside - as they prepare to welcome their first baby this spring
The duke and duchess will visit Tomorrow’s Women Wirral, an organisation that supports women in vulnerable circumstances.
It was set up in 2011 to support women on their release from prison, and now offers a range of training courses and workshops for more than 6,000 local women, including support groups around mental health issues, domestic abuse and addiction.
The couple will also visit the Hive, Wirral Youth Zone, created by thecharity OnSide Youth Zones, which is developing 21st century youth facilities across the UK.
The Hive aims to provide a safe environment for young people to help them build key skills and raise their aspirations and confidence.
The duke and duchess will also meet members of the public in Hamilton Square when they view a new sculpture marking the 100th anniversary of the death of Birkenhead war poet Wilfred Owen.

Is this a joke? What is Meghan Markle doing attending charities involving mental health and addiction. She was rolling joints for her wedding guests only 7 years ago and giving them doggy bags of the stuff, with some of them not knowing! And let us not forget the mental torment her poor rejected father is going through right now...what is the Queen thinking?

Sentebale is a charity Harry co- established with Prince Seiso of Lesotho when he was 19. It's a long term project of his and I think he would be thought badly of if he were to abandon it, which I don't think he ever will. Lesotho is in the Commonwealth and Commonwealth projects and endeavours occupy quite a lot of the BRF's time.

After Chelsy moved to London and especially after their break-up, Harry had pretty much abandoned that charity and his only involvement to that was play polo... then years later happened Vegas in his life and he remembered those kids there, that little boy was protographed said he wrote several letters to him for years and never received any reply... meghan  suits him perfectly... he has little to do with his mother as far as charity is concerned, no matter what his PR and ego wants people believe

Both William and Harry have taken over several of their mother's charities, AIDS, Landmines, Centrepoint (the homeless) and children's cancer hospital Marsden among them. Also, polo matches shouldn't be underestimated. They bring millions in donations each year.

Article about a 2013 visit to Lesotho by Harry, also talks about a 2010 trip which William accompanied him on. (Harry and Chelsy broke up in early 2009 and after that the romance was off and on.)  And he has been back to Lesotho several times since.

As worthy as these charities and endeavors might be that Harry has off shore, the prevailing reality is that we are solidly in a “charity begins at home” mentality among donors across the board.  I am repeatedly asked, “How does this help my community or country’s citizenry?”.  It’s just a fact.

What worked during PD’s time no longer applies.  The BRF should be aware of this and adjust accordingly.  Especially Harry, who’s really under the gun atm to be relevant in his outreach.

Harry has plenty of UK patronages, charitable endeavours that are based in the UK, both within the umbrella of the Royal Foundation and outside it.

However, Harry was appointed to the role of Commonwealth Youth Ambassador by the Queen. The Queen, Charles and the British Government believe that maintaining links between GB and the Commonwealth is extremely important, especially post-Brexit. Therefore Harry will continue to travel abroad to Commonwealth countries to carry on endeavours there, environmental, health, education etc., as well as in Lesotho.

Not on Mac IPad Pro it doesn’t look great.  That bronzer\highlighter is absolutely caked on.  The rest of it looks ‘ok’.  She’s not fresh faced looking and never will be because her skin isn’t well looked after.

Post by: misanthrocrat on January 17, 2019, 04:16:33 pm

^ She often does the nude lip because this is a "modern/contemporary" look, unlike the red lip which is a classic look. 

Trouble is people with more intense coloring (as an olive skin Caucasian, I know first hand) don't do nude lip very well  because it makes them look washed out. They need either deep/dark or bright color. Not nudes, beiges and pastels.     

Deeper reds like burgundies, cranberries, maroons etc is what does the trick for them. Or a  bright red raspberry if they really want to make it pop.

Last night she did the trick - and it looks so much better than that nude lip she always opts for in the name of being "cutting edge and modern".

But she is driven by a stupid ideology that she uses to manipulate the public with (I am the "modern" wild card, I am here to "refresh" the Monarchy!).

This obsession with being "modern" drives not only her campaign to look like the Mother of All Working Women, but even trivial aspects such as fashion look and choice of lipstick, despite not doing her any esthetic favors. 

Not everything "modern/contemporary" is a good idea - definitely not for everyone.

Softly colored blondes do nude lip the best. She's not one.

How hypocritical to talk about the cold weather while with summer sandals and pregnant.

The makeup is a disaster. Everyone, even the 15 years olds, All makeup artists know, that you either highlight the eyes or the lips, you don't do both cause you'll look like a clown. And she did. She was only missing the short coat with nothing underneath that she wore on Hamilton and she's ready for Soho.

So good that they got booed, twice. I guess, next time Harry should rent a crowd in the size of the entire theater so that Meggy gets the proper Oscar adultation that she deserves.

Unreal; even Fergie at this point was very popular. I do not think she is going to be able to hold on to any goodwill for very long. It's not like she can even keep smiling anymore and in her eyes you see her real nature. Taking each other's hands was a show that they were not as confident as initially and both are aware of the hostility.

Arrogant tone of voice, poorly designed to produce "poise and confidence" that don't actually exist. Completely missing the mark with this type of acting.

Contrived, overly controlled facial expressions when talking to people. She feels so disconnected and phony.

You can almost hear out loud what goes through her mind - "I look good, I come across just right, yes, I am! Yes, I am owning it".

The one person winning big here is KM.

The bar is so low with MM, that she looks divine by inevitable comparison.

If she thinks she dis good last night, she needs evaluation.

She looked like she's already unhappy with the royal role. Plus, she's elevated her star rating through this marriage. I'm sure she wants to do something on the big screen.

With Elon Musk and Jeff Bezos almost divorced, I'm sure she'll soon start to think of ways to get to meet them. After all, they'll both come with less restrictions or requirements to be clean, polished and to look decent.


Title: Re: Dukes of Sussex Engagements 2019
Post by: misanthrocrat on January 18, 2019, 06:22:41 pm
It would be a line with Bezos. There's someone else already in line before her.

Plus she would never exchange a Windsor for a Bezos. Would you?

Bezos has a Brazillion dollars but he has no rank and crumpets.
After a certain number, money by itself stops mattering.
She wants it all, money, rank, public adulation - and the Windsors have what she wants.

Last time I checked, no one was busy worshiping the wife of the richest man on Earth.   

 


Title: Re: Dukes of Sussex Engagements 2019
Post by: YooperModerator on January 18, 2019, 07:39:43 pm
These silly royal engagements are not nearly enough to feed the inner monster of her limitless ambition.  Midas Money, such as Bezos’, would enable her to try, and I emphasize strongly “try”, to gain access to real political power, which is her ultimate goal.  Major, world wide controlling influence, unhindered by playing any subordinate role, and nothing less.  Unfortunately, that takes massive money to self promote and the ability to take a political stance.  The BRF cannot bestow that on her.  They are a stepping stone to a much loftier goal.

That’s why she’s choosing to barge ahead of Harry at these gigs and insinuate herself as the perceived leader and more important driver of whatever the mission is.  It’s heavily calculated to build a portfolio, not ever ever ever to support Queen and Country.  It’s daft to think she cares one whit about the UK, HM’s image, or the citizens she represents.


Title: Re: Dukes of Sussex Engagements 2019
Post by: Ariel on January 18, 2019, 09:49:46 pm
For the likes of Meggy involved with someone or even married is not a problem at all.

Chef Cory was with a serious gf when Meg started copying her style and swiftly got rid of her. Harry was with Cressida when she started stalking her:
https://www.hellomagazine.com/imagenes/royalty/2018052948991/will-kate-middleton-meghan-markle-attend-wimbledon/0-242-86/meghan-markle-cressida-bonas-at-wimbledon-in-2016-z.jpg (https://www.hellomagazine.com/imagenes/royalty/2018052948991/will-kate-middleton-meghan-markle-attend-wimbledon/0-242-86/meghan-markle-cressida-bonas-at-wimbledon-in-2016-z.jpg)

BRF has one very important drawback she didn't think was there. She thought she's marrying the more popular brother but her baggage tanked the popular brother's goodwill from the public. Another drawback is that BRF doesn't really bow down to her. In the ranks she's way down there. The only way she can show her 'superiority' is towards plebs and that's not enough for her. It's not her, it's Kate who will meet with the foreign dignitaries and have them curtsy to her. She is sent to meaningless galas and garden parties. She can't go to Emmys, Oscars ... where all the big fish are. She can't express her political opinion yet a 20 somethings like Alexandria make history in the White House. On top of all that - the plebs who pay for the life she has have the nerve to keep her accountable for her spending and public appearances and she shenanigans she tries to pull.

(Bezos owns WashPost which broke some juicy news as of late and he has the money to really whitewash her past, unlike the UK royal family that didn't brainwash their subjects into liking her spending and her past, he's not into the presidential race, it seems, but just like all the other billionaires - his political biases get heard. The only problem landing him would be that M will soon end up with a spog or two on her hands and that will make her forever connected to UK ... something that US votes will not appreciate. Not one bit.)

Post by: sandy on January 18, 2019, 10:53:39 pm
A woman cannot 'get rid of' another woman without the man's cooperation. Cory was not a stick figure he decided to be with Meghan. Meghan had no reason to stalk Cressida since Cressida and Harry broke up in 2014.

I don't think there will be a divorce between Harry and Meghan. I don't think all the public dislikes Meghan.

Meghan said: I saw this project this woman had started somewhere in the States on a school lunch programme. On each of the bananas she wrote an affirmation, to make the kids feel really, like, empowered. It was the most incredible idea – this small gesture.’
Armed with a marker, and with the words “I am in charge of the banana messaging!” she wrote a series of messages on the bananas destined for the food bags sent out on the outreach van: “You are strong”, “You are loved”, “You are brave”, “You are special”.

I caan get where the outfit comes from just search Carolina Herrera she always looks elegant with this outfit. But it is also difficult tk master. Clothes cannot be so tight and everything must look expensive. Her shirt looks cheap and the skirt is too tight. And the cut was not necessary.

Oh, goodness, hard not to vent.

This woman is surreal. With every close-up video I watch of her conversing at these useless engagements, I become more repulsed.
My "bad people" radar goes in full red alert. 

Could anyone from her trusted entourage pretty please break it to her that her attempts at faking being gracious, ladylike and interested in what others have to say fall so flat and annoying it's painful to the point of  :prokates:? .
 
The part where she says "it will be a surprise" ... she's using such repulsive affectation, it's not even funny.
For all the good those "career" years did to her acting skills. Not. 

 Never mind the ghastly outfit 1000% unsuited for ANY pregnant stomach (I don't care who you are), where she has to pull and tug at that unfortunate skirt.
The shirt bulking up all over. The shoes were a "good grief" too.

No seriously...are these engagement really necessary? Do British people really feel like they can't live without?
I could SO see her less often. I could pay tax money to have her sit at home.

Heavily-pregnant Meghan's heading to Morocco! The Duke and Duchess of Sussex will pay a flying three-day visit to the country weeks before giving birth - almost 40 years after the Queen's 'tour from hell'
* The Duke and Duchess of Sussex will visit Morocco on February 23
* The two day visit will see Meghan and Harry take part in various engagements
* It is thought that Meghan will be around 30 weeks pregnant when she flies to Morocco with most airlines allowing women to fly until the 37 week mark 
* Comes 39 years after the Queen visited the country for the first and last time
The royal couple will visit the African country from Saturday 23rd February to Monday 25th February and are expected to undertake two days of engagements.
We will next see Harry and Meghan on February 12 when they will visit the Natural History Museum.

I read the article and I didn't know that the bananas were only seen by the sex workers through a photograph, and not in the parcels once they received them.  :sly: Instead the bananas were used for banana bread and then given to the sex workers.  :-

I don't get it. I thought there were muffins in the parcels, so why banana bread? Then why did Meg write on the bananas anyway if they were going to be used for banana bread? And why didn't anyone tell her not to write on them because the sex workers won't receive them as bananas but as banana bread instead?  :James:

In some ways it’s easy to imagine how a person like Harry, born in to a life of unimaginable wealth and privilege, would look at sex workers as being broken and downtrodden women. But he’s wrong to do so, and his comment — a dismissive statement of sorrow given at the wave of a royal hand — does nothing to help or support sex workers.

It merely reduces us to objects of pity that can be looked down upon at will, and furthers the popular belief that all sex workers are is helpless victims, lured or forced in to the industry and lacking the strength and knowledge to escape.

While the messages Meghan wrote in the care packages may come across as slightly condescending, at heart I still think she’s right: sex workers are brave. Sex workers are strong. And though many people are quick to argue against the existence of the adult industry by pointing out that out that some workers have faced drug addiction, homelessness, childhood abuse, sexual assault, and violent physical attack, these experiences do nothing to negate a person’s strength and bravery, nor their right to make money in any way they need.

 ??? so basiclly she's saying that they chose to be in this business and likens it toany other job out there.  bignono   I think this woman'smessage is very dangerous Funny that she liked what Meghan wrote though and dismissed Harry's concern outright. Given that the DM outright called Meghan a Soho House girl, I guess she knows what she's talking about regarding the women being brave as one must to enter a hotel room, car, etc, with a total stranger and do sex acts on him/with him for money.  :cookie:  No wonder she didn't enquire if the women have access to job skills and educational programs because she has no problem with women using their bodies for trade as it's just business.

^ This is one of those situations that fit under the 'there always has to be that one person that act like they don't understand if it don't apply, let it fly' category.

There are women who choose to be a part of the sex worker industry and this industry does not solely include street corner prostitutes (I'm not trying to down these women when I say that, just trying to describe where I think they mostly do their business). Many women are using the internet for virtual sex and pictures in exchange for money and there are call girls/escorts/prostitutes who have a known and more on the up and up clientele.

However, this charity is obviously not targeting those types of sex workers nor was Harry talking about those ones. It's obvious that they are targeting the more street corner prostitute. Women who were vulnerable when they were drug into the life and remain vulnerable. Otherwise, this charity wouldn't exist as these women wouldn't be relying on a bag and chips and inspirational bananas.

^^ Kind of unrelated. The pope was in OAE last month. The sucks didn't go to OAE.
Morocco is a weird trip and the promiscuous outfits that M loves so much are a big no-no there. Touching your belly all the time or holding hands with your husband or elbowing him to stand in front of him are also a big no-no.

If fact, I bet you that M went into a fit of rage that her doxing of private citizens didn't work, then the imaginary friends didn't work, then the letter didn't work and everyone's laughing at her cause her husband chose fake war enactment or whatever he will do over spending time with her on Valentine day.

I bet you that this 'diplomatic mission' is a vacay that missy hissy demanded. Toobad that Morocco is best to visit in April, May or September, October not in February where the temperatures are not ideal. A taxpayer funded vacay I might add. UK must be thrilled to have her.

Night at the (Natural History) Museum! Beaming Meghan is radiant in a cream roll-neck Calvin Klein dress and £895 coat as she is seen for the first time since her father revealed contents of her 'devastating letter'

The Duchess of Sussex was the picture of elegance as she joined Prince Harry at the Natural History Museum on Tuesday night.

Meghan, 37, who is expecting her first child in April, plumped for a custom cream roll-neck dress by Calvin Klein and a £895 coat by royal favourite Amanda Wakeley as she joined Harry, 34, to watch a play about Charles Darwin.

It is the first time the duchess has been seen in public since her father, Thomas Markle Sr, revealed the contents of a letter written by Meghan last summer in which she accused him of breaking her heart 'into a million pieces' by giving interviews to the press, fabricating stories and publicly attacking her new husband.

The letter was shared in response to allegations made by five members of Meghan's inner circle in an explosive People magazine article last week.

Today the saga continued when the Duchess' close friend George Clooney spoke out in defence of the royal, saying she is being 'pursued and vilified'. 

However any concerns appeared far from Meghan's mind as she arrived at the venue, with the Duchess flashing a broad smile for the cameras outside.

OK...I have stayed tuned for a few weeks/months now and I swear I am getting tired of seeing them out and about - both these two and the other two.

These people's lives are made of constant outings at galas and that's about it.
It must get tiring both for them and the public. Or do they just assume not ALL public watches them every step of the way like we have been here?
So they show up often so that ALL people get to see them SOME of the times?

The amount of money and adulation wasted on these symbolic royals without much skin in the game is quite astounding.
I am all for monarchy but I like it involved in decision-making, relevant and medieval.  :laugh:

For the love of everything dear, what exactly were these two trying to accomplish at the Natural History Museum other than be seen and spending yet another bucket of pounds on a sartorial feast?

I also saw her stop herself from barging ahead of Harry and allowing him to meet, greet and shake hands first a couple of times.

About time they were taken to school about these sophomoric and outside of protocol behaviors.

^Kate could be a lot of things; I’d say more Avoidant PD than Narcissistic.

How to Identify a Female Narcissist

Physical Appearance

She dresses provocatively, flaunting sexually suggestive body parts.
She focuses attention on makeup and hair, even for the most mundane tasks or events.
She is overly confident about her looks. Research shows that narcissists are no more attractive than other people, but they believe they are much better looking than other women.
She places high value on brand names, and feels entitled to wear “the best.” She frequently purchases new clothing, and does not distinguish between wants and needs.
She is more likely to have plastic surgery, most commonly breast augmentation.
She enjoys being photographed, and often asks others to snap her picture. She enthusiastically shares the best pics of herself on Facebook or other social media sites. She will sometimes invest in a professional photographer for a portrait that she uses on Facebook or for online dating.
Personality/Character

She insists on being the center of attention, and is often the most charming person in the room. Narcissists are very outgoing and excel at marketing themselves.
She often seeks favorable treatment, and automatic compliance. She believes that she is special, and that she deserves fame, fortune, success and happiness.
She is highly materialistic.
She is prone to envy, though she presents as supremely confident. She seeks opportunities to undermine others, and enjoys sharing confidences about how the two of you are better than others.
She is convinced that others are envious and jealous of her, and often uses this excuse for her lack of real, intimate friendships. When her friends enjoy successes of their own, she finds ways to punish them by downplaying their achievements.
She lacks empathy, and even common courtesy at times. She puts others down, including you. She does not hesitate to exploit others.
She is very competitive.
She believes that she is intellectually superior to her peers.
She blames others for problems. Narcissists don’t believe that they make mistakes, and lack the ability to process shame.
She displays a haughty attitude when she lets her guard down or is confronted. She will act impatient, arrogant and condescending. She will often excuse her own shortcomings by claiming that others are pressuring her or expecting too much of her.
She is dishonest and often lies to get what she wants. She will never admit this.
She is “psycho:” She engages in risky behaviors, has an addictive personality, and is prone to aggressive behavior when rejected. (Note: This is most common with Histrionic Personality Disorder.)
She is unpredictable in her moods and actions. You have trouble figuring out what she wants and where you stand.
She is capable of short-term regret, and will apologize profusely if backed into a corner. However, she will quickly rationalize her behavior and return to narcissistic patterns.


A woman doesn’t need to have all 20 of these traits to make a lousy relationship partner. If you can check off even a few of these characteristics, you should head for the hills at 60 mph. The six traits related to physical appearance should be apparent immediately, or within a short time of meeting.

^That tweet was long with: "...the Royal Foundation of The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and The Duke and Duchess of Sussex"  :sly:

Maybe they should shorten it and rename it to the Royal Foundation of the Fab Four.  :laugh:

In reality, it should really be changed to The Royal Foundation of Cambridge and Sussex  :thumbsup:

I'm so sick of the word empowerment.  :-X

I'm fed up of this idea that Meghan is a feminist icon because she once wrote a letter complaining about a TV commercial.

This is not feminist https://shawetcanada.files.wordpress.com/2017/04/meghandeal.jpg
Giving up your career and your vote and your voice to marry a prince is not feminist
Throwing other women under the bus for your own advancement is not feminist

She's going to look pretty stupid next to these women, who are all vastly talented and successful in their own right.

That's not what feminism is.  It it having equal opportunity to men and availability of choices and rights. So if she chooses to give up her career for a prince, that is a choice of hers alone, based on her own autonomy.  And I wouldn't say she has given up her voice, she talks a lot about issues she cares about.

The Queen would give the Vice Presidency of the Queen's Commonwealth Trust, as she is Patron of the Trust. Just as she gave the Presidency to Harry, this position given by her to Meghan shows a good deal of trust and confidence that they will do good things with this position. It's significant that HM gave this to Meghan on IW Day.

But the announcement is from KP, not BP. So, technically, Meggles decided to announce herself as a VP not the queen.


Title: Re: Dukes of Sussex Engagements 2019
Post by: Rosella on March 08, 2019, 01:25:58 pm
All press notices, announcements, news, of the Cambridges and Sussexes goes through KP. All other royals press releases etc goes through BP, with the exception of the POW (Clarence House.)

  And you cannot announce arbitrarily that you have appointed yourself Vice President of THE QUEEN's Commonwealth Trust (with the Queen as Patron. It would not go in the CC for a start. 

There are plenty of precedents for a Royal being a Vice President, Vice Patron. The Duchesses of Gloucester and of Kent are Vice Patrons of the Adjutant General Corps Regimental Association for example. The Duke of Gloucester is Vice President of LEPRA, Anne is Vice President to her mother at the National Federation of Young Farmers Clubs.

 Realistically I think this was obviously plan in advance, and they just announced it on international woman's Day as kind of a perk for women since murkcs is allegedly into women's rights (while playing a sex kitten for men.) I do not think in a day she could manage to guilt someone into giving her that position. Much as she would like to be she's just not that powerful

Meghan is glowing in green as she pays tribute to her 'second home' by kicking off Commonwealth Day celebrations with a visit to Canada House with Prince Harry
* The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are marking Commonwealth Day with a visit to Canada House in London
* Monday morning's event will celebrate community of young Canadians living in London and around UK
* Meghan, 37, lived in Toronto for over six years and has said she regards Canada as her 'second home'
* After their morning engagement, the couple will join the Queen for a special service at Westmisnter
Los Angeles native Meghan lived in Canada, described as her 'second home', for over six years while filming for legal drama Suits in Toronto and has previously said she feels 'very connected' to the country.
The Queen has put Harry and Meghan at the forefront of her Commonwealth duties by making them President and Vice President of the Queen’s Commonwealth Trust, an organisation promoting young people around the world.

During their visit today, the couple will have the opportunity to talk to groups of young Canadians from a wide range of sectors including fashion, the arts, business and academia, about their experiences as expats as well as opportunities for young people working in the Commonwealth.

Before departing, the couple will attend a short reception and watch a musical performance before hearing a short speech from High Commissioner, H.E. Ms. Janice Charette.

I suspect that it wasn't called for. Today was the day in which Kate shines with the Queen. Usually Harry goes to such condolences meetings alone and there's just a few pics if any to document the private meeting. These two called a press conference for this phony meeting where if you pay attention - Megan does the writing with her atrocious handwriting.

As they were outside they had to ensure the security was in place before allowing a royal visit. Had it been simply a visit to the inside of New Zealand House they could have gone earlier but as they were laying flowers they had to put a full security shield in place and they take a day or so to organise even in the capital.

Most days see multiple royals undertaking royal duties.

The fact that the press cover the Sussexes over even Her Majesty is simply because the Sussexes sell more and get more clicks online. It is all about the bottom line and nothing to do with the importance of the royal undertaking the duty.

Wow, this is a new low.

A) Kate and HM were on a joint engagement - their first ever (the previous one was with Philip). Why couldn't the Sussexes have visited on Monday, or Wednesday? Clearly calculated to steal the spotlight

B) Meghan is wearing another eyewateringly expensive outfit by Gucci - merching at this event, which marks a national tragedy - dreadful and tacky

C) Clutching her bump again - narcissistic attention seeker https://i.dailymail.co.uk/1s/2019/03/19/16/11188884-6825967-image-m-141_1553013646183.jpg

The Queen asked that the Sussexes go to New Zealand House on behalf of the Crown to sign the condolence book and offer deep sympathies, as they were there on tour in October. NZ House is an extremely busy place every day of the working week and arrangements have to be worked out with the officials there. The date and time was probably arranged beforehand.

The tragic event in NZ happened last Friday. They were signing the condolence book on Wednesday and yet some of the news footage in Australia on the appearance by the duo today showed it was all about MM. I find that utterly disgusting! No consideration for those that lost their lives and the their loss on their families and the community.


I wished they had never even bothered to sign the book. Would rather have had another Royal who would have made sure it was not about them.

And it's not Kate's parade, either - using this tragedy for her own gain. Shouldn't be a PR win for anybody and just shows how selfish and cruel they all seem to be. This photo op was yet another bust - unbelievable yet how are we even surprised? Yes, she needs to get away on leave or hiatus and go buy another Gucci or something.

After thinking about it, I think it was a PR win for the monarchy.  The Queen and Kate serenely carried out their engagement.  Both looked wonderful and everyone around them looked pleased that they were there.

Then you have the messy duo a little later.  It's not clear if the duchess was supposed to be there. I'm thinking she was not.  But those in the Palace knew she would crash Harry's engagement and let it go for the inevitable poor comparison with the A Team of the Queen and Kate.   

People are tired of this woman, her drama, and her seemingly-never-ending pregnancy.  I think the Queen is letting her "have her head" [horsey talk] and destroy herself, imo.


Title: Re: Dukes of Sussex Engagements 2019
Post by: Ariel on March 20, 2019, 03:21:54 pm
^ I think you're right. The A team and the Z team comparison is a big win for Kate and QE who handed that win to her by showing that she's ok with the sharing of the blanket and Kate showed respect to her Queen by wearing a hat for the event with her and no hat for the event afterwards.

Still, I think Megan has waaayyy overstayed her welcome ... to the world stage, I mean.
