Some interesting commments everywhere.

‘It had such a strange feel. You know, Meghan has likely never been inside a Baptist church. The Rev. Curry preaching? His congregation is in NYC. Another miss. It was weird having him preach, and then include MLK? The discovery of fire? I thought it was ridiculous! Like a bad movie. Starring Meghan.’

- and another
‘ The CBS coverage has been awful. Ingrid Sewart being especially toady, & Gail whatshername (Oprah's rumored girlfriend) babbling about black this and black that.

Rastiferians by the dozen being interviewed.

Tina Brown with her strange English accent. She looks almost eyeless, with so much makeup on.
———-
‘Z lister Beckham with tawdry tattoos up to his ear lobes’

Charles trying to connect with Doria outside with a hyena guffaw which she seemed to ignore.’

‘Elton John’s wig/hair seemed about to depart his head’

QE must be in despair despite trying to look ‘inclusive.’

Murkles has had her dream wedding day, but things will go downhill from here. Her embarrassing family won't go away, she'll have to contend with the fact that most of the British public dislike her, she won't be able to swan around being political anymore, and she'll become more and more irrelevant as George and Charlotte get older.

I'd just like the press to do it's job and report factual news and not chase after her tacky family. They're irrelevant. The issue is Meghan and how she got fast tracked into the family. How did she get her visa sorted so quickly? How's she awarded a HRH and a title? Why is she getting to break longstanding rules that every royal bride before her had to abide by? Why doesn't she know anything about the UK and as recently as a few weeks ago, Harry had to explain to her what a plaster was and how he's not going to just put a plater/bandaid over something like the American's do? basically, what's the true purpose of her being in this position that has made the monary a joke and untrustworthy and weak. She's not going to now follow any rules because she's never had to before. It's not like her titles and position can be taken away from her if she doesn't. She'll live the life of Amal Clooney, but without any work. She'll travel, shop and do whatever she wants to do with her Soho crew and no one and nothing will stop her. It's sheer madness.
Val, I agree with you and I'm a woman of color. i have a very big problem with people like Gail bringing her ethnicity into the situation when she should concentrate more on this woman's character and why people are ticked off at the situation. The fact that she's a bolted and an unstable chaotic woman who looks disheveled and manic at times and is quite rude and self-centered and uncomfortable around black people should be discussed as she's an embarrassment.

How did she get her visa 'so quickly'? We don't know when she applied for a fiancee visa so we don't know 'how fast' it was but they don't take very long as a rule anyway. She will now have to transfer from a 'fiancee' visa to a 'spousal visa' and that will last for five years at which point she can apply to extend it or apply for citizenship (unless she is fast-tracked to citizenship which is a possibility although they have indicated they will take the normal approach that applies to anyone else.

How was she awarded HRH and a title? Simple - she married a man who was HRH Prince and who was promoted to Duke, Earl and Baron on his wedding day so as his wife she, like every other wife in the UK, is able to take on all of her husband's styles and titles so she is now a Duchess, Countess, Baroness and Princess along with HRH.

She hasn't broken any rules really. The 'rules' have changed for each new bride. Sophie lived with Edward at BP for about 5 years before they married and Kate lived with William for years as well. Kate, like Diana before her, went on official engagements with her fiancee during the engagement period. The idea that the bride had to be a virgin ended forever with Sarah. The only 'rule' I can think of that she broke was being invited to Sandringham for Christmas but as she had no family in the UK she either had to go home or spend the majority of the day without her fiancee. The BRF aren't that cruel so invited her to join them. Kate had her own family in the UK and so was able to spend that time with her.

She has spent a number of months now at KP and a lot of that time will have been spent on learning about the ins and out of the protocol of the family, the country etc. She will make cultural mistakes of course but if she is willing to learn the people will continue to warm to her. Sure there are some vocal people who are objecting but they are the minority not the majority. Harry is one of, if not the most popular member of the BRF and has been for some years now (William, The Queen and Harry vie for the top three spots). The public will give his bride a fair go and only if she continues to make mistakes will they turn on her.

Great balanced posting as always mememe.  I tend to agree with you about Harry's popularity.  I was chatting to a guy who was ex-forces and he would not hear one word said against Harry. He didn't go too much into how he knew him but, said he was a great bloke who he had a lot of time for.

^ Exactly. That's another rule broken by her. The slaves speech - another one. Effing on your own wedding day and for the cameras - another rule broken. Maybe in the church from which she brought the slaves sermon priest this is yhe progressive norm. The tiara for a second / third marriage, the all white dresses. The interviews, the promorions and releases on KP letter head... what did she not break.
