Much on the Internet and other forums along these lines.

Many suspicious re the exploding fridge. Hot point mustn't take the rap. The confirmed story is an Ethiopian taxi driver was seen leaving his burning flat by a neighbour. He had opened the doors and windows and had a bag packed to leave. His wife and daughter had left a few days before. He said to the neighbour his flat was on fire but had not called 999.

Many people's money's also on it being either a) deliberately set fire to flat to get a house in exchange (this is going on all over Germany) and it got out of hand  or it/he was a terrorist.

A Royal rebellion, says CAMILLA TOMINEY

Monarchy has certainly never appeared more modern than in 2017.

We have had Harry admitting to suffering "two years of total chaos" following the death of Princess Diana, Prince William wrapping his arms around a victim of the Grenfell Tower fire and a dresseddown HM reading a Brexit-heavy Queen's Speech in a hat resembling the EU flag.

Some royal commentators are beginning to question the wisdom of younger royals expressing themselves so freely.

The Queen's mantra has famously always been to "never complain, never explain" and as Harry himself admitted in that Newsweek interview on Wednesday: "It's a tricky balancing act. We don't want to dilute the magic."

Personally, I'm all for the royals giving as many interviews as possible, preferably to the Sunday Express.

While no one wants to see the Duchess of Cambridge turning into Kerry Katona, pouring her heart out to Holly and Phil every time she misses her Ocado delivery, royals don't just need to be seen to be believed - they need to be heard, too.

Diana's death has been the elephant in the (throne) room since those visibly shell-shocked princes walked behind their mother's coffin with their heads bowed nearly 20 years ago.

Many interesting comments on other forums as below -

'The younger Royals have been advised, as per usual, by people from their own social milieu.  Despite the efforts of the Royal PR team in trying to persuade (con!) us, Harry and William don't mix with the ordinary British man or woman and have no, or little, understanding of the issues that affect us.  They may pretend to sympathise with the victims of terrorism and other disasters, but they are just wheeled out for PR purposes by the Palace's media bods. And the public see this cynicism and are no longer duped by it.

The RF can't now expect to live permanently in their palaces and to lead lives of extraordinary privilege without incurring the British public's anger. With the ever-changing differences in our society from, mostly, mass immigration, there are people in the UK who have neither love nor respect for the RF.  They, and many UK-born people, are starting to see the Monarchy as an anachronistic institution and a drain on the UK's finances.  Over £330m of taxpayers' money will be spent on the refurbishment of Buckingham Palace, but how many of us will ever get a chance to walk through those elaborate gates?  Even the attendees of the garden parties and other events are kept on a tight rein and cannot wander around the place with impunity!!'

- and another

'The good thing about Corbyn that he is anti monarchy and would hopefully get rid of this archaic institution where everyone expects  a life of luxury and fawning (and as with the younger generation) giving little in return.  There are plans afoot to requisition empty palaces and put immigrants and those unfortunates from disasters in them.  The RF could easily handover several now and barely miss them.'

They were a bunch of hypocrites with the Queen Mum providing a safe house for Charlie boy and the mistress.

Kensington Palace denies Prince Harry is criticising other members of his family, but suggests they are simply his reflections on how attitudes to grief have changed in 20 years."
"Harry’s aides suggest that Harry meant; no Royal Family member is motivated by position - only service."
come back JLP   spy

The amount of charity work he, William and Kate will do will be more focused. Until last year, the queen was patron of more than 600 charities, and the royal family supported 3,000. By the time William becomes king, those numbers will have plummeted.
“A source close to Harry says they want instead to concentrate on specific charities that they research thoroughly first and then get involved in on a regular basis.The one thing they don't want is to be seen as a group of celebrities.
Harry seconds that. “We use our time wisely,” he says. “We don’t want to turn up, shake hands but not get involved.”
Let's laugh.   tehe

He dates a celebrity (maybe wedding), he has many / several friends who are celebrities (going to parties, festivals,pics in instagram), he promotes (mostly) his events associating with celebrities,continues....

There seems to be an ''abyss/chasm'', sigh  what he speaks and how he acts.

oh yes Danifaul - bring back JLP!!! they need someone more experienced and able to say NO to Will and Harry.

and yes - a chasm between what he says and what he does - avoid the celebs please!

but in all fairness, the newest interview in the DM which is also creating a storm - Harry says he rebelled years ago but since Afghanistan has committed himself to service.  Still Harry would do well to shut up and not do an interviews for awhile.

I wager it was because of Maxima's marriage to Willem; that kind of connection protects at a platinum level of it all. So no justice there. Of course he knew, anyone in that regime KNEW what was going down and I am certain that Maxima's marriage has protected him immensely.

On one hand, Maxima is a huge asset, but on the other, she benefited from her father's position in a tyrannical regime that murdered so many. Without such an upper class background and advantages, I am certain that she would have ended up not able to meet and marry a Crown Prince like Willem.

Camilla was never going to be considered good enough; her lineage was not prominent enough and country gentry lineage would not impress enough at all. The BRF clearly wanted Stuart lineage in their bloodline and Camilla didn't have any. It's kind of disgusting how the BRF had no problems with Camilla as a mistress, then being discarded, but wouldn't consider her fit for one of them as a provider of heirs.

^^she a z-list, high maintenance, pushy, fame hungry ho, who's the opposite of what Harry
claims he wants; more normalcy and doing good works to help people.

That is his image of himself, not the reality; the reality is that he is no different than the Yorkies and he's no different than William and Kate.
