This will be the 2nd place where Harry's taking this phony where black British youth are doing things that are positive. IMO, she could care less about that only in the press she'll get and to stick it to the naysayers regarding why she's still around. Is her presence part of a marketing/pr effort to engage people of colour to view the royals differently? It's not working with this phony who people see right through. It's insulting to people of colour. Harry was doing fine including all people prior to getting involved with this  easter-think woman. Comments aren't good regarding her inclusion.

^I think Harry has done his fair share of visits to organizations that help people of color prior to Meghan to not make it seem like he is doing it all of a sudden because he is marrying a half-black woman.

It certainly looks it, though. But us veteran Harry watchers should know that that is not the case.

The American press may pounce on it because they are racism watchers and probably don't recall that Harry has always enjoyed helping out in Africa.

As a black woman, I resent this pandering campaign H&M seem to be on. Everything I need to know about how M really feels about black people is reflected in her choice of friends (not her so called celebrity friends) and the fact that her mother is trotted out when its convenient.

^That article chapped my hide big time. MM does not represent me nor any other black woman. We aren't even fit enough to be in her inner circle.

^exactly. I'd love this too bit strumpet to be called out on her hypocrisy. Funny how Harry's the real one who's really putting the spotlight on things that that effect black British youth. The comments are really going after her more so than Harry. They basically saying she'll pretend to care whilst putting on her pretend concerned face.

I'm willing to give them(her) the benefit of the doubt. Being the daughter of a Social Worker (a very underpaid, underappreciated & overworked profession),  heavily media covered visits to charities geared toward people of color in the  United Kingdom would be great (hopefully this will open the  doors to more forward thinking programs).
Lord knows in the US the severe cuts in Art & After School Programs has had devastating effects. Some communities have independently networked and now have sponsorships. Now if it's  January 2, 2019, and there's  nothing then.........

Meghan and Harry will meet presenters, content producers, volunteers and staff involved in the Reprezent training programme which was set up in Peckham in 2008 in response to an alarming rise in knife crime.
The programme has helped more than 4,000 young people develop and socialise by learning media and workplace skills at the radio station, and is viewed as a hotbed of emerging UK music talent.
It also offer support to young people with mental issues, a cause very close to Prince Harry's heart.

on duty? I'm sorry but this is an American tv actress and always will be for most of the world, even if she will be named a duchess after her wedding. There's a lot of nasty rumors about her past and her former relationships. Is she supposed to represent British monarchy from now? I that case, I can't imagine how can we take it seriously.

Really can¿t take to this person at all. She seems so superficial.

They are just using these kids for PR stunt its ridiculous. He should have been doing this instead of trips to Toronto over the past year whilst wooing her. He can't have it both ways - now he wants the press for PR and a few months ago he was telling them to back off. She is fake with a phony smile remember she is an actress but the public can see right through her. I would be offended to be used in this way - poor Brixton. Harry can't make up for lost time. He should have been doing this over the last few years. Also Kate and William need to buck up their ideas instead of procreating more Royals for us to keep.

The article was updated to clarify that the visit will be about. The comments are mostly negative as they should be.  eating cookies
IMO, I don't give people the benefit of the doubt when they show me who and what they are. Mehgan's track recod speaks for itself regarding her short marriage, her fake lifestyle of being an independent, feminist, hard working out spoken woman. She's a poser and chancer/lying con artist who chages her image and story when a new mark comes along, like she did for Harry.
This visit will occur on Waity's birthday. Maybe she'll actually do some work on that day to overshadow this sham.

^^^ I think it's a grammatical error by the DM. So, what else is new? The quote 'their work' refers to the work Reprezent does with young people, I believe.

As a twice married professional ( 1st marriage lasted 2 years & we dated for 8.5), currently marred for  8 years after dating for 14 months; switched focus of my profession and even changed religion. I've said and done  dumb stuff at 16, 18, 21, 23, 25,26, 30,32,33,36,38,40 & yesterday (probably tomorrow because it's cold as heck over here).I'd hope no one would hold anything in my past against me or believe my good intentions come  with motive
?But as my Grandmother would say, "They talked (spoke ill/ bad  about Jesus Christ. What makes you so special?" 
As the daughter of a Social Worker and niece  of numerous Educators any spotlight on any program highlighting people of color, young girls and coding, art programs for poor underfunded neighborhoods, tutoring after school and etc, bring it on.  Hopefully, more royals will visit these areas with heavy media coverage and put a spotlight on the issues happening right there in the UK.

Wow you have some things in common with MM. I'm a prosecutor for Los Angeles County but I also volunteer teaching kids in ghetto areas and that is very rewarding. And I agree the more anyone does to help underprivileged children the better regardless who is doing it or their motives. So this is a good thing that these two are doing. And I would expect that they will do more because that is what is expected of them and that is why they are getting taxpayers money to appear or at least live the life they live so they can appear it things. It would be far better if they volunteered for no money to do these things. Because I do it for free.

Unfortunately, there is an old saying, which I have found to be very true for many people  -  mud sticks, and murky murkle had had a lot of mud in her life, created by her own self.  It is rare that a leopard changes its spots, and so new into this, with a lot to learn, she is continuing in her old ways, making little or no effort to change her MO so far.  Some people can get mud slung at them and they are innocent, but that is the exception rather than the norm.  And for murky she has no good intentions, all her "charity" work was to gain pr and show off frocks, she was paid to do it.  As for the royals, I very highly doubt they will do what you have outlined above, because purely and simply they won´t want to.  They don´t care about white British people, why should they care about black British people. And no, I am not a racist, far from it, but the rf are a breed apart.  IMO they are not happy at all about a mixed race marrying into the rf, not at all.  Nor one with such a colourful, grubby past and track record.  They would not welcome a white person with the same background, still a mystery to most as to how council cath got it.  Haza is a do gooder, but only as it would now appear, to suit his own agenda when necessary.  A second bill medd, never thought he would turn out like that.

Put these two together and let them get on with it, but personally, speaking for myself, I do not see their very fake and transparent charade working in the long term.  And why is she being foisted on the British public, she is not married in yet, pushing the boundaries a lot aren´t they.

The rf has gone downhill so rapidly it is untrue, they must realise that this charade with haza and murkle is doing them not one bit of good and sending them out to fly the race flag like this will likely not be popular with them.  With all due respect, rightly or wrongly, many in the UK are racist, and this will not go down well with them, with many not even liking her.  Why should the rf highlight racism, and the acceptance of it in the UK, when our own  pensioners get a monthly pittance and can´t afford to put the heating on, dying of hypothermia or living the most miserable existence, having worked and paid into the system all their lives. It really is just not on.

To send haza and murkle out on engagements like this, in my view, is just not on, and a very poor show indeed on the part of the rf.  Why should murky be given top priority, she is not even British (and I am not against US people other, I have many friends in the US).  Surely the British people should come first.  Why should the British taxpayer fund her, she is only out for what she can get.

HM has made a big mistake allowing this marriage to go ahead with what appears to be her approval, this is the rf, not your ordinary every day family.

As a lonnnnng time fundraiser, this event is not designed to promote anything but Meghan Markle.  It is a test to see if she has “a draw” and by draw, it means to take her empathy pulse.  Also another opportunity to sell the new, modern, more aware generation which they, from their yacht or whatever in Monaco and fashion photo spreads are not only blind as bats to the disadvantaged but horrifyingly ingenuous.

^ Was ready to say something along those same lines, but you said it so much more eloquently than I.   Yes, fer shure . . . this is a trial balloon.  The Royal Family Handlers are worried about Meggles' negative factor.  They are trying to figure out if they can handle it, or indeed if it CAN be handled.   I think not, myself, but they will have to figure it out on their own.

What I am curious about is:  Does Harry know now how unpopular Meggles is?  That her "celebrity" does not translate to popularity?   And that her unpopularity is going to bring him down?

That's what I want to know . . . .  blink

The Prince's Trust has worked for several years helping underprivileged people, not just children, in the UK and long before MM appeared on the scene. The plaudits for this kind of work belong to other people, many of whom prefer to be anonymous, and not to MM who will jump on the most appropriate, publicity-seeking bandwagon.  And it's a wagon that could turn into a tumbrel...

I don't buy the dumb Harry act as he's never acted this way before. Yes, he's done dumb things just like any other human being, but being taken in by a shyster like Meghan, I'm not buying it. It's an extreme insult to think that this mixed raced woman who's very comfortable living her life an ambiguous raced woman and only uses being black when it suits her, usually to play victim, that she'd be seen as someone who would care about black British youth. This visit will be a waste of time and as I said, an extreme insult to the volunteers and whoever else they'll meet st the event. People see what she's about, so the staff at KP shouldn't use the people of Brixton to see if she'll pull her weight. How can she when she doesn't care. The dumb thing about this is that Brixton's not like it was years ago as it's a mixed area  although, yes, there's still problems like any other neighborhood that needs programs for the youth to do something positive with their lives. I'm getting tired of seeing good, honest people being dragged in and used to make this bizarre paring acceptable to the people. They're not and the sooner cool heads at the Palace put a stop to this circus the better.
