^ I always thought it would automatically go to Charles, as he's the heir. William is Charles's heir, he wouldn't be next. I don't know how people think it can skip Charles and go to William, that's not how it works.

She is not going to like the confinement. That is why she will eventually bolt when she gets enough out of it. It is so obvious.

Yes it is. Whoever thought that a superficial and calculatingly ambitious Cali woman like M will be a good idea for the brf, a breath of fresh air, modernization for brf  must have been out of their mind.

She's not liked because of the kind of perso  she is, not because of external factors like divorcee, american or mixed race. The only way she can walk away now is with a bag of cash.

Independent.ie by the way is MM's PR outlet so this article imo is testing the ground to see how quickly she can claim the victim 'royal confinements' card like Princess Diana.

It's nothing like Diana who was confined to Buckingham Palace during the engagement. MEghan is free to come and go as she pleases and is not confined to a suite of rooms, isolated for a few months.

diana felt isolated too during her 1rst years in marriage, especially during her pregnancy with William... she complained to a lot of people she had nothing to do whole time. She wasnt always with Charles in engagements. Then people around her said with the time she'll have a routine as going to the  trooping the colour etc.

As Diana, I think Meghan also will be bored out of her mind with the royal life, being around people who she has to nothing to do with, no affinities etc  (for diana the issue was they were much older, they had nothing in common, to talk about). Meghan isnt a country person too. All that protocol, rules. Her life isnt only going to premieres and galas... there's whole boringness she'll have put up with. As Diana, she'll be around people who the loyalties are to Harry/Windsor husband.

As I've always said the ambitions of Meghan are going to bite her back...

By George! Meghan Markle and Prince Harry attend Hamilton, the West End show that mocks his ancestor

Meghan Markle declared that she would give up acting after becoming engaged to Prince Harry, but she’s still thrilled by the smell of the greasepaint and the roar of the crowd.

This weekend, the former star of legal drama Suits took her fiance to see hip-hop musical Hamilton, which tells the story of Alexander Hamilton, one of the Founding Fathers of the United States.

A spokesman for the hit show at London’s Victoria Palace Theatre confirms the royal ‘private visit’, and a fellow audience member tells me: ‘They seemed to love it and were applauding enthusiastically.’

It was, however, too dark to record Harry’s reaction to the scene in which his ancestor, George III, is mocked mercilessly. The English king (played by Michael Jibson, pictured) is portrayed as a ‘puddingish, catty’ figure who stamps his foot on the floor cartoonishly, saying he is feeling blue at the loss of his colony.

Although George III is remembered mainly for losing both the American colonies and his sanity, he is said to be the monarch that Harry’s father, Prince Charles, respects most.

During a visit to a school in London’s Pimlico in 2012, Charles described the king as a good man who was simply misunderstood.

Previously, he told a television documentary that George — who, like him, loved the countryside and had a strong interest in architecture — was one of Britain’s most dutiful, cultured and misunderstood rulers.

‘George III led Britain through 60 years of enormous social upheaval, industrial revolution and terrible hardships inflicted by war with Napoleon,’ the Prince said in 2004. ‘Yet history remembered him above all as the “mad king” or the “king who lost America”. This is a travesty.’

Amazingly, Harry, William and Charles all have three lines of descent from George III.

This is kind of impolitic; his ancestor is being mocked and derided and this would hit a nerve if I ended up watching one of my ancestors being insulted on stage.

Say what? She's not someone who was on the stage of a saloon or tawdry acting house. She was an actress in a television series and certainly she was not much in front of a live television audience.

As I've always said the ambitions of Meghan are going to bite her back...

I think the isolation will take it's toll, which will send her into the arms of the wrong people. She might take up with Victoria Beckham and might take up with the many bad news types she will feel most comfortable around who will feed her angst. Unlike Diana, she will be in a situation where she will have no allies; Diana was a courtier and was surrounded by courtiers who did want her to do well and I don't think all the courtiers are all straight up evil. Diana had the public, the media, her charity workers, so many who cared about her and clearly Meg doesn't even have the public's goodwill. I am certain that the life of humdrum day to day respectable routine will in fact bore her to tears and clearly Meg will manage to find a stable milieu, but she'll blow it through her more 'bohemian' preferences. Life if puzzles and chats with courtiers and staid dinner parties won't satisfy her ambitions.

Check how fierce she looks here: https://youtu.be/tfaGleA4qYo

There is no way she's going to end up being shy or demure or make the jobs of the courtiers easy.

^that was announced during the Cardiff trip, so it's od that it's in the papers again today when Kate and Sophie's enjoying hosting a fashion event at Buckingham Palace. This woman's not going to be busy as thankfully MM seems to go missing for weeks after each pr/public engagement and articles saying that she has no where to go and is nervous about royal life.

Chrissy Teigen remembered being a briefcase model with Meghan Markle on "Deal or No Deal," and joked that she could be "Princess Harry"

I find CT a bit crass and doesn't give too hoots what she says or does as long as her name's spelt right. I don't get her with John Legend at all as he comes across classy.  dontknow

^ Yeah.. CT should be ignored, she's only happy when she's in any kind of paper, by hook or crook, incl publicity stunts (eg being [near] naked on the red carpet and posting her own naked pics on social media). It's always best to ignore her sigh

Australians unswayed by royal engagement as support for monarchy hits record low
Quote
The engagement of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle has not turned young Australians into royalists, with a new poll showing support for the monarchy is at a record low and is weakest among those aged 18 to 34.
The survey of 1,000 people conducted by market research company Research Now found 52% of Australians support a shift to a republic, while 25% are unsure and 22% prefer the monarchy.
https://www.theguardian.com/australia-news/2018/feb/21/australians-unswayed-by-royal-nuptials-as-support-for-monarchy-hits-record-low
This is great in terms of another reason why this union’s poison. The next IG is in Australia in October and sponsors are required to help pay for the games.

I like that it’s the entertainment community that’s taking gabs at her and agreeing that she’s a social climber and a user instead of having dirt about her come out and she can play the victim. Her own character and actions are bringing her down.

He should have stuck to the commonwealth countries like Canada and Australia to pick a bride if he had to stray from the UK. I'm sure there's someone out there that's right for him in addition to Megan who will be a disaster down the line. Well he will live and hopefully learn

Countdown to the Royal Wedding: Why Meghan Markle Could Become the Next Princess Diana
There's something a little bit different about the British royal family nowadays. Sure, 2018 is going to bring us some extra family members: Prince George and Princess Charlotte will be getting a new sibling and we have a wedding to look forward to. But with Meghan Markle in the mix, it feels like we may also be gaining a new People's Princess.

Meghan Markle's influence has jokingly been referred to as the "Markle Sparkle," a phrase that seems particularly fitting considering her glamourous past. But as we edge closer to her May wedding date, it's becoming clear she's having a much bigger impact on the House of Windsor than any of us could have possibly predicted.

It's been less than three months since Prince Harry got down on one knee and yet already his bride-to-be is winning over public hearts and evoking memories of another former Kensington Palace resident, Harry's mom, Princess Diana.
The comparisons became glaringly obvious last week when it emerged Meghan has been making a number of top-secret visits to comfort victims of the Grenfell Tower fire. Undercover charity operations such as this are highly unusual considering Royal schedules are planned weeks, if not months, in advance. "Meghan's visits mean so much to us. She has a special place in our hearts," said one community member who was lucky enough to meet her. Her actions are reminiscent of the days when Diana would sneak out of Kensington Palace to visit hospital patients and the homeless, unannounced. She even took a then 12-year-old Prince William on one of her trips to visit a shelter so he could understand how different life really was on the other side of the palace gates.

Having the Queen as Head of State as Canada, Australia and New Zealand have and being in the Commonwealth are two very different things.

Even if these countries become republics (not a certainty by any means as far as Australia is concerned. This was a survey commissioned by the Australian Republican Movement, with a skewed question asked) they won't leave the Commonwealth. Most countries in the Commonwealth are republics anyway. They didn't break away when they became republics and they aren't exactly begging to leave. In fact there are some countries that are waiting to join.
