I don't know how to assess this Instagram account or the stuff they report - but sometimes it's from reputable magazines like The Spectator.

I don't think this is -- but they're saying Mohammed al Fayed or whatever his name is (Diana's boyfriend killed in the same car) has been interviewed and is somehow involved with a Markle endeavor --maybe the book, or the documentary, ??

If true, they may go 'there' (accuse the royal family or its security or lack thereof of being involved in Diana's death -- seems the old man won't give that up and what else have the Markles got to peddle?)

Hope this is just made up trash.

Mohammad al Fayed is a known trouble maker. I'd take anything he said with a grain of salt. He's has nothing to lose, because he already has a bad reputation, Harry on the other hand does. Not that Mohammad gives a damn about any repercussions, he just likes attention.

For R7 (it's cut off at the end - I retyped it) @Nookienooo – Ohhhhhh what if this is true? Is Mohammad funding freedom???

QUOTE: January 26, 2022. The interview was filmed, but I do not know if it is for a documentary or the book that is being written. My guess is it is going to be used for both. The other question is whether this is going to be a documentary released at the same time as the book. That would seem unlikely as the book has a definitive release date, and would seemingly take longer to get the documentary ready. In any event, the interview, or at least the subject of the interview, tells the rest of the world what direction the book is going to take.

The interviewee who is very much in the latter stages of life very much supports the theory that his son and A list girlfriend were murdered. He spent a great deal of money at the time proving his theory and it is very much a valid theory. He explains it very well and has documents to support his theory. There doesn’t seem to be any point in interviewing im if you are also not going to subscribe to the theory yourself in writing the book.

If so, there will be no building any bridges back every again. How can you when you would be accusing someone of murder who is on the other side of that bridge.

Mohammed Al-Fayed / Dodi Fayed / Princess Diana / Prince Philip / Book Being Written by Prince...

Al Fayed? Not a good idea.

[Quote]Al-Fayed has been accused by multiple women of sexual harassment and assault.[74][75]

[QUOTE] Young women applying for employment at Harrods were often submitted to HIV tests and gynecological examinations.[76] These women were then selected to spend the weekend with Al-Fayed in Paris.[76] In her profile of Al-Fayed for Vanity Fair, Maureen Orth described how according to former employees "Fayed regularly walked the store on the lookout for young, attractive women to work in his office. Those who rebuffed him would often be subjected to crude, humiliating comments about their appearance or dress...A dozen ex-employees I spoke with said that Fayed would chase secretaries around the office and sometimes try to stuff money down women's blouses".[77]

[QUOTE]A December 2017 episode of Channel 4's Dispatches programme alleged that Al-Fayed had sexually harassed three Harrods employees, and attempted to "groom" them. One of the women was aged 17 at the time. Cheska Hill-Wood waived her right to anonymity to be interviewed for the programme.[79] The programme alleged Al-Fayed targeted young employees over a 13-year period.[80]

I would LOVE for a Fayed/Harkle unholy alliance as yet another example of the couple's hypocrisy, but it's probably not true.

by Anonymousreply 11August 6, 2022 3:57 PM

If there is a collaboration between Harry and Fayed, then I want to see it. At the time, Harry couldn't stand either Fayad. Next we know he's saying his mother died whilst dating a dark skinned man. What a pile of crap. Considering his stupidity, I'm amazed that Harry can dress himself.

by Anonymousreply 12August 6, 2022 3:59 PM

Even if they interviewed him, it could just be background stuff for the book -- like Dodi's father still believes.... (without Harry saying he goes along with it).

I mean he's got to fill pages with something and that's pretty decent gossip to put in there.

Read a rumor that they fired the ghost/co-writer though because Meghan interfered so much. Also that the draft(s) had been rejected by Penguin, at some point. It'll be a relief when this limbo is over, no matter how it turns out. This is the rumor, probably got it on here lol - I can't keep up:

"Did Moehringer quit or get fired? Does anyone have the dirt on this (this was the ghost/co-writer of Harry’s book. Ppl say Meghan wanted to run things. ??? Doesn’t Penguin Random-House get any say so?"

by Anonymousreply 13August 6, 2022 4:01 PM

Well, there IS NOT a definite date for the book’s publication. If there were, we’d know about it. The memoir was announced how long ago? And when it was announced, Harry had been writing it for a year and a half. It was supposed to be published last fall, for Pete’s sake.

A Pulitzer Prize winning author (with experience writing these things) can’t take an existing work and whip it into a memoir in a year’s time? Moehringer is no hack. The Sussexes are fucking it up, as per usual.

One interesting part from TB’s book is that as a young adult, William sought to better understand his mother so he sought out her friends and members of the Spencer family to ask questions. Harry had no interest in a more well-rounded view, so he’s kept Diana firmly on a pedestal.

by Anonymousreply 27August 6, 2022 8:49 PM

It is omitted Diana had been deceived and lied to and did that interview fuelled the by lies of others. There's no way to know she would have said the same things or different things had she not been manipulated. I'm not whitewashimg Diana, she was emotional and impulsive and classic woman scorned. But she was exploited in that interview and from everything I've read that's why William wants it shelved. It is his mother at her worst, manipulated by the worst. Was it courage or vengeance fuelled by lies and greed? A vulnerable woman taken advantage of. Diana was not afraid to her corner but she went about it all the wrong ways and that's what Panorama used against her. It was cruel, to everyone affected.

Depends on what you think a great marriage is.

He's the Edward who had a custom built sex chair in a Paris brothel. Since he had an enormous girth, it was supposed to ease the act for the royal and prostitute alike.

The blue dress in the video at r75, it's so tight on her. You can see the wrinkles where it rides up when she moves. She must have seen photos of herself after these events, how can she look at them and not realize all the times she looked like a stuffed sausage. It's not about gaining/losing weight, it's about working with the weight you are now.

Then there's the hair. She seems to have three default styles: the messy yoga bun, the scraped tight Croydon facelift bun/ponytail and "down". It's not her fault that she doesn't have perfect hair, most of us don't, but it's her bad luck to be compared to Kate who does. She could've completely changed it up by cutting her hair very short. She had the face for it. But then, long hair is so sexxxxxy. It's essential for her identity as the hot chick.

When her husband died, she became a queen-dowager but preferred to be styled HM Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother, informally as The Queen Mother or simply as Queen Elizabeth (her daughter being referred to as The Queen). Prince Philip was born HRH Prince Philip of Greece and Denmark. Just before marrying, he gave up his princely titles and became Lt. Philip Mountbatten, using the anglicization of his mother's dynastic name Battenberg. After marriage he was styled "HRH The Duke of Edinburgh" until 1957, when the Queen made him a Prince of Great Britain and Northern Ireland and he was styled "HRH The Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh." There was never any discussion of his being a king-consort as there has been no such title since 1558. The husband of England's first female monarch Queen Mary I, Philip of Spain, was referred to as King, but only during her lifetime, as were the first two husbands of Mary, Queen of Scots. The husbands of subsequent queens-regnant were styled in an idiosyncratic way: Queen Anne's husband was referred to as Prince George of Denmark. Queen Victoria's husband had the unique style of The Prince Consort. The husband of Queen Mary II was a king in his own right (William III) because in 1689 Parliament offered the throne to William and Mary as joint monarchs.

More excerpts for you lovely people:

[Quote]In reality Meghan’s day-to-day life, was utterly conventional. There was no danger, no risk, no threat to her survival. She was not part of a notable set. Her life was a performance to a limited audience on a tiny stage. Part of the crowd, she passed through air terminals, taxis and hotels in almost complete anonymity. Her problems were familiar to all unknown, unmarried actors in their mid-thirties – fear of loneliness and personal and financial insecurity. Professionally, she could not complain about unfulfilled potential. She had never struck out to be different, or to rebel, or judge herself against spectacular theatrical performances. The impression was of a person satisfied with herself. She rarely confessed to a lack of self-confidence.

[Quote]Her self-criticism was limited to cosmetic superficialities. The Tig never hinted at an intellectual curiosity or a hinterland. She was never heard to suffer any restlessness to beat a new challenge. The biggest influence on her life so far appears to have been the character Aaron Korsh created, Rachel Zane, an ambitious, fluent, sexy, shallow fashionista with a passion for food.

Suits launch:

[Quote]‘I’m part of the horse-and-pony show this year,’ she wrote in her anonymous blog about American Network’s launch of Suits to prospective advertisers in New York. ‘They’ll roll out the red carpet in a major way because they want me on show – “the talent”, they call us.’ Clearly excited by her introduction to first-class flights, chauffeurs and luxury hotels, she continued, ‘This is part of the job and it’s fucking awesome. If you are pursuing television, then realise that you have already sold out and take your big, fancy pay-check because you can now. Flashing those pearly whites (ahem, veneers) and working the carpet with your sexy little body (ahem, Spanx) is part of the job description you jumped on board for when you signed on that dotted line.’

On dumping Trevor. Are we taking bets on how she will ditch Harry?

[Quote]Thomas did not tell Trevor a more hurtful truth: ‘Meghan has outgrown you, just as she outgrew me.’ Thomas called Doria. It hurt that she already knew. ‘Trevor was mean to her,’ said Doria without further explanation. ‘He did bad things.’ Thomas was puzzled. Meghan, he thought, had possibly invented something. Or he had misjudged Trevor.

[Quote]Although Trevor resisted invitations to explain, he did tell a friend that domestic life with Meghan bore no relationship to the demure young woman who fluttered her eyelids on TV screens. Marrying a ‘mercurial, dramatic, shouty and difficult’ actress who demanded a role in his films had been a challenge.

[Quote]In retaliation, Meghan’s friends portrayed Trevor as envious and resentful of her success in Suits. Until then, Trevor had enjoyed Meghan’s dependence on him. Thereafter, speculated Omid Scobie, repeating what her friends had said, Trevor had refused to ‘support her acting career’. She was not invited to the Oscars because he ‘didn’t want to share the spotlight.’

This is not quite the same thing, but when the Duchess of Gloucester became a widow, the Queen gave permission for her to be known as "HRH Princess Alice, Duchess of Gloucester," to distinguish her from her daughter-in-law, "HRH The Duchess of Gloucester" and a way to avoid the undesirable status of "Dowager Duchess." While Alice's sister-in-law, Marina, as a widow, was known as "HRH Princess Marina, Duchess of Kent," Marina was in fact born a Princess of Greece and Denmark, so it made sense. However, bestowing that honor on Alice (who was born Lady Alice, as the daughter of an earl) was a surprise. But that suggests that it is conceivable the Queen could make Kate a Princess in her own right, as she made Philip a Prince in his own right. A few questions emerge: if Kate were ever get divorced, could she keep the title of Princess? When would she actually use the title, since she is officially known as HRH The Duchess of Cambridge and, in the future, is likely to be known as HRH The Duchess of Cornwall and Cambridge and HRH The Princess of Wales.

R87 Kate already is a princess. I cannot fucking believe we have to go through this again.

There are two kinds of ducal titles: royal and ordinary. An ordinary is addressed as Your Grace.

A royal ducal title Carrie's the RANK AND STYLE HRH, His Royal Highness.

Kate and Meghan married Princes of the Blood. They are therefore, by courtesy, also HRHs. The custom of granting royal ducal titles to blood Princes is an add-on, a gift of the Sovereign.

Without the additional ducal title, Kate would be HRH Princess William. Meghan would be Princess Henry. Only people BORN HRHs can use the style and title followed by their first name: Princess Anne, Princess Beateice, Princess Eugenie.

Kate occupation is listed as Princess of the United Kingdom.

When William becomes not just Prince William but Prince of Wales, he and Kate will begin using Prince and Princess if Wales instead of Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.

The HRH rank of Princess is already carried by Kate. Only the title's name will change; she already Carrie's the rank and style of Princess/HRH.

The media will call her Princess Kate, but it's inaccurate. It is accurately HRH Catherine The Princess of Wales.

The Sovereign grants the Wales title to the male heir. That's the only other Princess title coming Kate's way, and the only way it does is if Charles dies before the Queen does and she gives William the Wales title, or Charles when he becomes King creates William Prince of Wales.

The Wales title carries a trail of subsidiary ones, including Duke of Cornwall. It is this ducal title that brings with it the land and revenues of the Duchy of Cornwall.

None of the other current royal ducal titles are attached to land and revenues, except the Sovereign's, the Duchy of Lamcaster.

Harry's, Andrew's, Philip's carry only the honorary title.

Frankly, I'd rather be the ordinary Duke of Northumberland with his ancient castle and land, than Harry's empty and not too distinguished royal ducal title of Sussex.

[Quote]On reflection, some decided that Meghan was reinventing herself. ‘I love my character,’ Meghan told Larry King in a TV interview broadcast on a digital channel to promote the third season of Suits. ‘Rachel Zane is ambitious and sassy.’ Unintentionally, Aaron Korsh, the series’ creator, was remoulding the actress’s own character. ‘I see Rachel,’ said Meghan, ‘as such a good friend. I root for her; I’m almost like a fan. Rachel is like the ultimate best friend – who has a closet that I always borrow things from in my personal life.’ As she said later, ‘ambition’ was what she and Rachel Zane had in common.‘

by Anonymousreply 138August 7, 2022 9:20 PM

R124, you are almost right. The title Prince of Wales is not given to the male heir; it is given to the monarch's eldest son. When Edward VIII was king, his brother Albert, Duke of York, was the male heir; he could not have been made Prince of Wales. Also, the title Duke of Cornwall is not a subsidiary title of the title Prince of Wales. William will become Duke of Cornwall the moment Charles becomes king, and he will be addressed as HRH The Duke of Cambridge and Cornwall. This was the case when Queen Victoria died and Edward, Prince of Wales, became king. Edward's son, George, Duke of York, became HRH The Duke of York and Cornwall. He was made Prince of Wales at a later date. There are many such instances in history of the monarch's son being Duke of Cornwall; these sons sometimes did and sometimes did not subsequently become Prince of Wales.

Northwestern is a good school, you can't be an academic moron and expect to get in. However, she did pick an easy degree. She went to college around the same time I did, and that was when they really started the diversity push. I'm sure she was instructed by the admissions counselor at her school to really play up the mixed race part for an edge. Anything to help get your application accepted. Back then Asians were still considered fairly desirable, and my admissions counselor told me to make a point of it.

There was no lottery ‘win’ but Thomas did give Tom Junior money to start a flower shop and bought Samantha a car. Meghan’s school fees were easily affordable for him.

[Quote]Pertinently, she resisted the invitation from Professor Linda Gates, the head of the voice programme, to study acting in a theatre. ‘You can learn to be a great actress,’ Gates recalled telling Meghan, ‘but I’m not sure she wanted to. Theatre is where you learn to transform yourself and reach an audience – six or seven nights a week. A star actress like Meryl Streep, trained in the theatre, can completely transform herself and go deep into a character. But Meghan was playing herself – a pretty girl who is personable and intelligent. Her strength was empathy.’ Throughout her life, Meghan never mentioned a theatre performance she had seen or enjoyed. Like many aspiring cinema stars, she thought theatre was dead. But, pertinently, friends could also not recall her gushing about an outstanding screen show.

This is the "smart" woman who majored in theatre??

Markle is listed as a "Candidate for Degree" as Bachelor of Science in Communications at Northwestern University.

Here is the link to the program for commencement which lists her name as "Rachel Meghan Markle".

Date June 20, 2003.

See page 21, far right column.

Note this degree was from the "School of Communications", which according the the program's note was previously called the "School of Speech".

I've been reading Tom Bower's book in tandem with Tina Brown's and that has been quite interesting. Brown is an enjoyable writer, while Bower is more of a reporter. I learned more about Camilla than I ever knew from Brown's book and see her in a slightly better light.

Brown seems to excuse, or at least explain the charges of bullying against MM as a matter of direct American vs upper class British style. 'Why hasn't that invite gone out' vs 'I wonder if you would mind awfully checking to see if that invitation has been sent'. But reading about the outrageous, atrocious way MM behaved during the Reitman's job, I am skeptical. I think she treats perceived underlings like shit, because she can.

R205, Bower and Brown are both at pains to find positive/mitigating things to say about Meghan because, if they didn't, their books would be more easily painted as hatchet jobs (possibly hatchet jobs with a racial animus).

For example, Brown allows for the possibility that Meghan was somewhat misunderstood by the courtiers, and Bower says he admires the fact that she's a skilled operator who's got what she wanted.

I think that both Brown and Bower are too intelligent to believe either of those things completely.

Bower is right.

Meghan is intellectually lazy. She is probably lazy in almost all aspects, except for habitually trawling social media. Her PR staff and management do all the heavy lifting (when she is not constantly getting in their way). She's also unable to curtail her impulses. This, as R213 states, makes her unable to hold to any long-term plan.

I wonder how she even managed to graduate Northwestern. Writing papers and such requires effort. I just can't see her putting in that effort. Maybe she bought them off other people.

Will add, she is so lazy she cannot seem to maintain basic hygiene.

I certainly don't think Harry is intelligent - but I'm still on the fence as to whether he has the kind of severe personality disorder that I think she has (cluster B). So I think he could get by, in life, maybe especially after living through this nightmare. I 'think' I've seen glimpses of empathy and real compassion from him, towards various people. And didn't he manage to get along with William and Kate for a few years - can't remember the details, but something about him seeing her as the sister he never had?

Anyway, he needs to get away from her. And she needs to... well, keep bulldozing over people in SoCal, like she always has -- omg and those poor children. Well, anyway, there's nothing to be done with NPDs except get away and stay away - and I think she's the type who won't be very interested in spending time with her children anyway. Kids are boring. Hopefully some reasonable people will appear in their lives, as nannies, teachers, friends and friends' families, etc.

Who is worse, though? Meghan seems delusional to the point she denies reality. Harry happily follows her lead even though he seemingly has a better grip on reality. You can tell this is so in how he reacts when she tells her whoppers. I know she winds him up with her woe-is-me tales, but he knows better on some level. But he carries on because he has a victim mentality. He will always act out (just like Andrew).

As a child-of-narc though, I have some advice for him: he should act like he doesn't care if he sees his kids or not and let some social secretary try to arrange all their visits and holidays together. If she feels like she's "dumping" the kids on him, she'll probably be happy to do it. IF she thinks she can use them to gain leverage and power over him, she will damned sure do it.

It will be about someone who declared she felt forgotten and uncredited by the British Royal family as she stood in an impoverished country wailing for her poor self after she had just met with children lucky to survive walking a mine field to get water, or worse wailed about her poor self just because she was a Narcissist bereft of attention. "Those black girls were raped trying to walk to school this morning? What about ME?!?!

Someone call SS and make this or anything about ME!!!! I don't care how many Doritos I have to spend!!!!

They'll realize Invictus is most decidedly NOT about maimed former soldiers. It's a showcase to keep Harry, the Duke of Eejit relevant. And even after so much straining to keep Harry, the perpetual ball scratcher and finger sniffer, going, everyone and their granny knows he's long been an emotionally stunted, self-regarding idiot. This AMONG HIS FAMILY.

"I'm in shock from reading that Harry was known for beating up prostitutes. So royals are protected when they commit assault?"

R254, the world is full of places where the justice system tacitly legalizes assaults on sex workers. Since sex work is illegal in most places, and most such assaults take place during an illegal act, police and DAs will not prosecute people who beat the shit out of prostitutes, and most prostitutes won't go to the police if they're attacked. Sex work is an insanely dangerous job, because the sort of people who like to attack prostitutes know this, and we're not just talking people like Harry. If your neighbor down the street likes to take a break from the wife and kiddies, and go into the city and knock the teeth out of some poor girl, he'll have absolutely no fear of being arrested or prosecuted.

That's one of the reason I think serial killers are still out there, silently picking off sex workers and members of the underclass, people who won't go to the police and whose disappearance will not be investigated.

To refer to back earlier in the thread, I saw that alleged Meghan sextape on one of the tube sites before it got wiped everywhere. It was obviously a "deep fake" with Meghan's head expertly CGI'd onto another woman's body. The body in the video had wide areolas and big nipples. We've seen Meg's topless beach photos and she has small areolas and pencil eraser sized nipples. Plus the woman had a navel ring with a charm hanging from it and we would have heard if Meghan had that. And the body proportions weren't right. The fake had a woman with a normal waist and normal legs, not fat and skinny respectively. It was incredibly convincing CGI, though.

by Anonymousreply 295August 10, 2022 12:03 AM

R291 that is true, but I don't think Harry has enough self-control, or enough abillity to understand consequences, to be aware of that.

I've always said that Harry will be the one to leave the marriage, because Megan knows damn well that without him she's nothing but an aging Hollywood ex-wife, one two kids and without much money. Because of that she might actually tolerate abuse for a while, although of course she'd keep a record of any incidents to use against Harry (and the Bank of Charles), if he ever tried to leave.

Frankly, he may be abusing her now, now that it's absolutely clear that their original plan of monetizing their popularity isn't working... because they aren't popular. I'd bet my 401K that they're having screaming fights these days, and who knows if he's using his fists when the fights ramp up and he's on his 14th Glenlivet. And he's twice her size, and still strong even if he's getting doughy.

She knows exactly what she's doing and eventually, even if it is not for several years, she will go in for the kill.

Sometimes if a straight man is dominated by a vicious little wife, he'll strike back physically, because he knows that's the one kind of fight where he's guaranteed to win... at least in the short term. He always pays for it in the end, and some men with domineering wives learn it isn't worth the consequences, but well. Harry doesn't seem to have much in the way of impulse control, so who knows how he'd deal with feelings of anger towards her.

All pure speculation of course... for now.

r326, true! (I wish I could smoke weed in the morning.) I think one of the problems Harry is having (among many), is he has nothing to focus on that makes use of his talents and is something he wants to do. Not sure what his talents are of course...

Apparently he enjoyed being in the military. Frankly, he's not too bright, and the tasks required not a lot of thinking. He could focus and complete them, felt good about that, then got to hang with his buddies.

I think very creative, intricate projects--yes, like producing documentaries--is WAY out of his comfort zone and capabilities. Therefore, he's stuck with not much to do, which for a person like Harry (who needs direction and focus given to him, he can't summon it himself) is not a good thing.

Harry has been unhappy and moderately lost all his life, he doesn't like the role he was born into, and the military filled his days but without giving him a real sense of purpose and dedication. He left the military like he left the royal family, they weren't making him feel happy or fulfilled, and weren't offering him the kind of future he wanted, so he was out. I'm not criticizing him for this, he had every right to make those choices, but it's just that he left without carefully considering what he was getting himself into, or carefully and logically examining the kind of life he's have an as ex-royal.

Because what he left his family and career for was not personal fulfillment, but a career as the Duke of Windsor 2.0, and a marriage that brings out the worst in both parties.

The military rightfully refused to elevate him to the next rank without first passing the required exam all candidates must successfully complete. Supposedly, he was upset with the Queen for not exerting pressure on the military to skip the exam, one he knew he could not pass. He was relegated to a desk job and quit in a fit of pique.

For all the 'Hero Harry' bullshit, I would bet good money he was just as much a pain-in-the-ass to deal with then as is evident now. They probably put him on a desk with next to no responsibilities to force him out. Just being put on a desk most likely rankled his ego. You just know he wanted to exceed William in rank or at least get to do something substantial such as fly helicopters*.

*Yeah, I know palace and military PR publicized he was "qualified" to fly Apache helicopters. This guy couldn't pass art class without a tutor doing his work, but I am supposed to believe he passed written, oral and functional exams to pilot a multi-million $$$ piece of equipment? No. I imagine the actual pilot did all the flying and Harry got to go pew-pew-pew with the gun for press purposes.

This is classic learned helplessness.

Because the Meghan person has to keep her victim walking on eggshells and never on solid ground, psychologically, he never knows whether he’s doing the right thing, according to her. He can’t even anticipate what she wants, so he can smooth the way. If he anticipates what she wants and provides it, that would make him a competent person, and she can’t allow that. So he learns to rely on her instructions of the moment. If she doesn’t instruct him, he flails helplessly. And then she can roll her eyes and say “why are you just standing there like an idiot?”

Watch his body movements. He throws his hands up in confusion.

“Think of the publicity opportunities, Harry! We could do the chat shows together, and breakfast telly. We’d make a great double act. You could tell them how awful the media is, and I could tell them what fun you used to be, before it all went wrong."

Harry's book is supposedly finished and the lawyers have vetted the text so the author's job is done. If more changes are made without his input, he can always insist that his name be taken off. The publicity from that will be enough to tank the book.

R123 The Queen was actually a Commoner on the day she married, until she became The Duchess of Edinburgh. She may have been a Princess, and the Heiress Presumptive, but if you aren't The Sovereign or a member of the Peerage or one of a certain number of the clergy - then you are legally a Commoner.

R144 Some of your facts are a bit skewed. That Princess of Wales nonsense has been making the rounds of social media for a while - but there is no truth to either the fact that Elizabeth was ever mooted to be a female Prince of Wales or that that was because her parents wanted a son. Due to male preference primogeniture, Elizabeth was never anything but Heiress Presumptive, because she still had two parents who may have produced a son and he would definitely have been Heir Apparent and could have been Prince of Wales. The situation was a little similar to that of Edward VI who bypassed his two older sisters because old Henry desperately wanted to prove his manhood by having a son. In those days, of course, there was no clear succession as there is now.

Not to defend Harry unduly, but the Invictus doc isn’t about him; it’s about the athletes preparing for the games. It wouldn’t be fair to the athletes to lose out because Harry’s wife is a cunt. (I know: Life isn’t fair.). As it’s just a rumor, I’m not going to get too worked up about it. It’s not my cup of tea, so I’m not watching, although I think it deserves to be aired. It’s the only bit of enduring goodwill they have left, and if the doc gets shelved at this point, it’s going to reflect poorly on Harry. His name is all over it (on IMDb, he’s credited as the “star” of the doc, not any athletes.)

As far as I’ve seen, the “Duke and duchess at home” program (uh, reality show) hasn’t been officially announced. Has it?

So they have two projects on IMDb that are allegedly dead, and the one that’s supposedly happening doesn’t have a footprint anywhere.

Netflix is soooooo Markled.

What base exactly was Harry stationed at when he was beating up on the prostitutes? There is no air base in El Cajon, California, and there is no other El Cajon. Could it have been Naval Air Facility El Centro, which is actually in Seeley, just west of El Centro? The Blue Angels practice there, and my Mom and Dad met there during WWII when both were in the Marine Corps and it was a Marine Corps airfield. Seeley is a rather impoverished area (and so is El Centro, really, other than agriculture) and is close to the Mexican border. Is this where Harry was stationed?

R374 has a strange idea about what is a commoner. He ignores that there is a category of "Member of The Royal Family." Princess Elizabeth wasn't a commoner; she was a member of the Royal Family (and the Heiress Presumptive). She outranked most other individuals in the country, including all the duchesses, marchionesses, countesses, viscountesses, and baronesses. If R374 is referring to legal status, it is true that the monarch is apart from all other individuals in the country; however, that doesn't make princesses commoners.

To Americans (and I am one), "commoner" = the people in the crowds, the peasants, those not a part of the aristocratic class. To the British, anyone without a legal title or rank is a commoner, i.e., you're an Earl or you're nothing. It's two different ways of looking at the world.

Anyone who isn't HRH is a commoner, whether you are a duchess or a dustman. The Queen was born an HRH and has always been royal. People like Diana and Kate were commoners but were made royal through marriage. That's why it was a big deal when Diana lost her HRH--she went back to being a commoner.

Poster upthread is correct.

Princess Elizabeth, as the Queen was, was born royal. Anyone with an HRH is royal. She was a King's granddaughter and a Prince of the Blood's daughter. Where that moron if a poster above got the idea that she was a commoner is a mystery.

Aristocrats are commoners. The Duke of Borfolk isxa commoner. Sobatecall the parts in the House of Lords.

Only an HRH confers royal status.

Below royal comes the aristocracy, those holding hereditary titles: dukes (ordinary as opposed to royal dukes), earls, marquess', barons . . .).

Then came the landed gentry.

And then everyone else.

But only HRHs and above (and above means the Sovereign) ate considered royal.

The media call every member of the family, frequently and wholly erroneously, royal. People like Zara Tindall and Peter Phillips and assorted ithe minor and/or lowered titled members like Lady Sarah Chatto and her brother and their children, as "royal". They aren't. Neither are the York grandchildren.

Archie won't get that HRH until the Queen dies and he becomes the grandson of the Sovereign rather than the great-grandson. Until then, his father is royal and Archie is a commoner who can use his father's subsidiary title of Earl Dumbarton.

HRH Princess Elizabeth, born a Princess of the Blood, granddaughter of King George V in the male line, and Heir Presumptive to the throne a commoner.

I think it's fair to say, at this point, that the Sussexes have pretty much destroyed their brand. When they pulled out of the Firm, they had a chance to present themselves as cause-motivated rebels, positioned to speak on behalf of the forgotten. Instead, in their continual efforts to put down others (i.e., their relations), they painted themselves as more important, more entitled, and more victimized that others. In their ill-judged appearances on television -- not just Oprah, but Meghan on Ellen and Harry with James Corden -- they made themselves look petty and peevish -- and, in the case of Oprah, demonstrable liars. I imagine Spotify and Netflix have also found them as difficult to work with as did the staff of the Firm, which wouldn't serve them well as they also proved themselves unable to produce content.

Meghan has probably been making one excuse after another. First it was the miscarriage. Then her pregnancy. Then extended maternity leave. The excuses ran out so she advised Spotify (or, Spotify demanded) she'd have enough content to go live this summer. The summer is now over with no content. Now, Spotify is trying to cut their losses. Shame they feel they might have to pay off Meghan in order to escape whatever accusations she may throw at them.

Harry was working off the BRF “Patron” model. You’re designated “Patron” of a charity and you show up and give your opinion on things but never actually get your hands dirty.

When he moved to the US, he was expecting to be made patron of several organizations. However, in the US it’s a bit different. US organizations choose their Board of Directors and Steering Committees based on what the person brings to the table.

Obviously, lawyers are at the top of the list of types that orgs want on their Boards. Additionally, financial people are highly sought out (I worked as EA for CEO of a bank and he got board offers on a weekly basis. People were begging him to join.) If they can’t get an actual banker, they’ll look for someone with a track record of raising money (usually someone who had done it for a political campaign).

Harry had access to money, but everyone knows rich people don’t spend their own money unless there is something in it for them like a tax break or access to someone they want to know.

Harry’s access to the BRF wasn’t desirable to anyone, especially because everyone saw the conflict that Fergie and Andrew created by granting access.

So Harry really had nothing to offer as Patron or Board of Directors member.

Not on Twitter so could not read the post re Spotify/Netflix?

I think the Bower book has been pretty much drained - we've all gotten more than enough verification of how awful the Harkles have behaved, before, during, and after.

The upcoming material will be Valentine Low's book "Courtiers", Harry's "memoir", and the next phase of Harry's suit for Judicial Review of the Home Office's decision not to grant Harry automatic full-time 24/7 armed police protection whenever he is in Britain. Anent that, there is an article in The TIMES (UK) today of how that protection for Prince Andrew is still costing the taxpayer an "eye-watering" sum.

I don't think the appearance of that article in the country's paper of record is coincidental. I am guessing the Home Office is lining up its ducks for its defence and making it clear that the taxpayer isn't going to stand for any more of this than it already has. This is a piece of PR that warns the Harkles (and, possibly, the government) that any such favour to two nonworking, nonresident, disloyal rogue royals won't be tolerated by the populace.

I am still interested in the Bill quietly wending its way through Parliament that would give the Sovereign the power to strip hereditary titles without having to go to Parliament for final sign-off - as long as Parliament is in general agreement (privately arrived at. The Bill, I think, has gone through or is going through its second reading, and then heads to the House of Lords.

To me, these disparate dominos seem to indicate preparation for a further dropping of shoes, particularly if Harry's memoir is as destructive as the publishers are leaking it will be.

Harry's book, I believe, will be out before the next phase of his two court cases requesting Judicial Review of RAVEC's decisions.

Imagine the impact on the Home Office's considerations if the book is as vituperative as alleged!

So: Harry's book which yesterday was rumoured to support Harry's wish to "explode the monarchy", in tandem with the Home Office's considerations of his desire to be treated as if he were a Member in Good Standing of the institution he wants to explode, and the Bill offering the Sovereign a swifter, easier channel to strip him of the emblems of such membership.

Watch this space.

The Removal of Titles bill doesn't get second reading until December. At that point the House votes on whether or not to put it the next phase, which is Committee stage where each clause and any amendments to the Bill can be debated. Then it goes back for third reading and a vote and then it goes to the Lords for first and second reading, committee, and on and on and on.

It isn't a bad idea in concept but I wouldn't bet the farm on this happening.

First, it's a bill from the Labour MP for York - it's probably as much grandstanding for her political status as anything else.

Second, it is rare but not unheard for a private member's bill to become law - moreso when the government is the opposite party and holding a majority.

Third, there will be inherent reluctance to adopt this as law and create a platform to pressure the late 90s year old Queen to employ it against her son - who has not been charged with anything anywhere, let alone convicted - and that principle of whatever you want to call it - traditionally innocence, even just as a principle - is fundamental to the fair administration of justice. It is a lot to ask the Queen at her age to act as such even if a majority thinks her son is at least an idiot. Nonetheless, idiocy at this point is all that's been proven, and that's arguable because it wasn't proven in court. A settlement in a civil action, whatever you may believe or wish to believe, is proof only of a desire to make something go away. The nature of that desire is unproven.

Fourth, the country is in a fucking mess, half of it ready to catch fire at any minute, about to change Prime Ministers, and poised for delights like potential energy shortages through the winter. There will be no victory in spending time on something like this any time soon... it would seem the height of detached from reality. The Conservatives and their newspapers can argue all hell is breaking loose and Labour's worried about bloody Prince Andrew. The heat of the anger against Prince Andrew has faded. Now he's just disdained and disregarded. The hunger to banish him vs. the hunger to have the heat on won't compare.

Also, I can't help but remember that Thomas Markle's work in that same area seems to have been viewed very highly and as very professional. I know that some people who worked with him have spoken up in his defense.

And then there is Trevor who is, apparently, still in the business as well.

I agree they didn't get their media contracts because of Meghan's racial status. They got a lot of positive media coverage because of it (from outlets run by people who probably a)don't give a shit about race and may even be a bit racist themselves but also b)understand the cultural climate we're in) but they got their media contracts because of Harry and his being a prince. That's it.

All this BS about Harry getting International security. Will you people put a sock in it.

He is not now nor ever will he be a representative of the Head of State or of the government. He will never be entitled to that and he never was.

On Royal tours arangements are made between governments, on holidays there seems to be some co-operation, but not the big motorcade bullshit.

r462 I am not talking about their security when they were in the UK.The IPP status is about when you are out of your own country and the Queens relatives who are working royals are covered by that.Meghan and Harry seem to think they can have that when they are abroad despite the fact they quit as working royals!! So when Harry and Meghan visited Australia they were IPPs. Would the Queen have got more and better security if she visited Australia- Yes but any working member of the royal family is an IPP when they visit abroad on business. Meghan and Harry were IPPS but they have embroided in their mind what it means and when it can be applied or applicable. They have a much grander idea of it than the reality. They want that status back and their fantasies around it but its not going to happen.It was appalling the cost they put on Canada and security staff when they were there end of 2019 to early 2020 - not on official business but having a holiday of sorts.That provided protection was because of their IPP status.

by Anonymousreply 463August 13, 2022 2:46 AM

SA is correct about their security in Canada. They weren’t here on an official visit, but had round the clock RCMP protection as IPPs.

When they announced their departure from official duties, Canada pulled their protection and they left the country almost immediately. They were going to leave anyway, but apparently were pissed at their taxpayer funded protection being pulled.

by Anonymousreply 464August 13, 2022 3:06 AM

Not only did they have IPP status in Canada vis a vis their nebulous status as members of the RF mostly unwilling to perform duties requiring protection. For a time they had BOTH RCMP and Metropolitan police officers on royal protection duty.

Keep in mind that this was during the Holiday season when the Sussexes kept both contingents of highly trained bodyguards and officers from TWO Commonwealth countries on Vancouver Island, ostensibly for their "safety," but they were often seen dispatched around town running errands such as shopping, picking up food, dry cleaning and coffee for the couple.

However they were unable to stop one of Meghan's pap walks with and incredibly huge and heavy Archie uncomfortably dangling from her chest while she walked a dog. All the while acting as though snake charmed by the pap's lens.

Of course, she sued. Apparently won and the agency declared bankruptcy. Various posters on various sites wonder if it was a set up. Which is a high probability supposition knowing the Harkle shiftiness.

It's interesting, R473, how even with enough money to pay for all the tweaks she wants, Meghan has turned out to be one of those women who is irrevocably made matronly/less beautiful by motherhood. You can't even put your fingers on specifics, usually, a woman somehow just looks older. It's pretty rare in rich women these days, which is why it's surprising in her. She is not helped by the fact that she doesn't carry ANY extra weight well at all, including on her face.

R475 - Meghan had Botox injections to the massiter muscles in her jaw area which gave her the appearance of high cheek bones and a sculpted jawline while she appeared on Suits.

by Anonymousreply 479August 13, 2022 8:51 AM

American here and I know I am probably late to the game, but Audible JUST released Revenge with a rather sinister narrator. What I have gleaned from this thus far, 3 chapters in, is that what maybe we all thought was an extraordinary remarkable tale was simply an entitled cunt in the right place and the right time. Meghan is rather unREMARKLEable (I had to) and is just a dumb, greed bitch who has an ego inflated by her family. She is a dime a dozen in LA, where I am also a native and her same age. What I found interesting is that it seemed Tom Markle, based on this book ("recollections may vary") was an overindulgent father who felt guilty about having Tom Jr. and Samantha "at the wrong time" and decided to give everything to Meghan. She is a leach who used any man or woman to get her way and Tom was complicit in giving in to her every whim, whether he could afford it or not. It seems Doria was not around at all, possibly very bi, but a "free spirit" regardless of her sexuality. She wasn't at all interested in being a full time mother and Tom took on the burden. It's a dark day when I am defending Tom Markle. Bottom line, he indulged Meghan in her delusional fantasies, enabling her to be the nasty cunt she is today. I am finding this book somewhat depressing b/c at the end of the day, there is not Markle Sparkle. She is just a nasty bitch with a chip on her shoulder and an inflated ego who decided she was going to make everyone pay on her way up. It's so LA basic, she could literally be any money grubbing, self important whore - she could be any of my thirsty friends. It was all right place, at the right time, but Meghan is as ordinary as they come who somehow landed in extraordinary circumstances and blew the opportunity to smithereens. Talk about "never shine day light on the magic". The daylight has been shown & what we see is botox bumps, bronzer, and a bitch who will never be satisfied. The book is good, but it really takes away the fun of Meghan. She is just a gold digging, slightly better than average LA whore who hit the jackpot. Bummer - I had thought she was actually interesting during the engagement.

I can't imagine how the British royal family could take them back, should they wish to return. Harry and Meghan have crossed too many lines: accusing the royal family of racism, dissing the Commonwealth as a racist organization, taking positions on political matters. At this point, they would be a serious liability. Further, the royal family have now seen what Meghan is capable of and how easily Harry is manipulated by her. Perhaps, after a divorce and several years of gradually rehabilitating Harry's image, they could make him a working royal again (they did a great job rehabilitating Camilla's image, although it took fifteen years). It will probably depend on who is monarch at the time: Charles could be suckered into it, but I think William as king would say, "Thanks, but no thanks" to any request to come back into the Firm.

r464 Thank you- and yes the way they treated security in Canada as lackeys says a lot about them.

r485 I believe Harry threatened to play the race card if the Queen declined his wish to marry Meghan ASAP. I thunk with hands it would have been better if she stood firm and said in a year when you have known each other longer. Harry could have married without permission if he renounced his place in the line of succession and that would be fine for someone who says how awful he found royal life. But he sees no problem trying to have his cake and eat it.

Scene: She waltzes into her senate office, her coat fashionably draped on her shoulders. She turns to her aides, all sitting in a circle waiting for her to arrive and give them orders. “Jane, get me the president on the phone. He’s going to come out in support of my version of the energy bill. He knows he owes me this one after I single handedly saved his Supreme Court nominee. Besides, it’s the right thing for this planet of ours. If we don’t save it, who will?”

Jane nods and scurries off. The remaining aides look up at her in admiration.

“Sam, get the press here at 4:00.”

“Yes, senator duchess. What should I tell them it’s about?”

The Senator Duchess smiles enigmatically. “Tell them they’re in for the surprise of their careers. In fact, you all are.”

Sam nods and scurries off. The remaining aides look respectfully at her.

“Rob, be a darling and get me an oat milk latte? Double shot, please. In fact, get one for everyone. Charge it to expenses.”

An aide who’s just there to fill out the scene picks up the phone. “Senator duchess, your daughter is on the line.”

Jane scurries back in. “Senator duchess, the president is on line 1.”

Meghan turns back to her other nameless scene filler aide. “Tell little what’s her name mommy is busy saving the world right now. She’ll appreciate it one day.” She calls after Rob, who is just heading out for the coffees. “Rob, on second thought, make mine a triple. A working young senator duchess mother needs to keep her energy up.”

Eh, I still Meghan was the driving force in them "escaping" the RF. Before they were even married she was picking fights with Kate and grifting Charles to pay for clothes she got as freebies. She had zero interest in any kind of relationship. Remember, the biggest whoppers in the Oprah interview came from her. Not exactly someone who wants to smooth things over. Harry may have thought about leaving, but it seems likely she's the one who made it sound plausible. "Harry! We'll be so popular! Harry! We'll make millions." Also recall that upon arriving back, in CA, she announced that she was ready to field offers from A-list directors. She really thought that Duchess title of hers would pave the way to fame and acclaim.

I wouldn't be surprised if in the beginning she and Harry went on drug/sex binges together, b/c that's what he likes and his other girls have also been smart girls who liked to party. Meghan is too much of a control freak to let that be an ongoing thing although I could see her enjoying blow with her Tig. There is a photo in a blind item (not about them) of them leaving Soho House and both have the "eyes" of people who were doing rails.

I didn't know Trevor married a "billionaire heiress" per the book. Good for him. He got Markled, but it seems he might have learned a thing or 2 from the experience.

There did seem to be genuine fondness between her and the cast when she was such a raging bitch to everyone else (Reitman's, etc).

Also, I cringe every time I hear excerpts from her anonymous actress blog. With that said, does anyone have the archives to that? I loved the line, "If you are on TV, you've already sold out so collect your paycheck and smile". Talk about a jaded but she grew up on film sets. It's too bad Tom Markle went the bumbling bafoon route. He's an Emmy winner which is not nothing and it would have been interesting to see him mix with the Royals. I think why Meghan iced him out is that at the end of the day, they are 2 of a kind, 2 peas in a pod. She's Tom with Doria's shady grifting tendencies. It does seem Tom loved Meghan very much and really did everything to help her.

It is very inconsistent that MM was hard-working, professional and well-liked during her 7 year tenure on Suits and abused the Reitmans people and BRF staff in such an uncool stupid way.

by Anonymousreply 529August 14, 2022 4:28 PM

There are a few inconsistencies the book got wrong which make me question a few things from Tom's recollections. He said that she never worked in high school and denied Meghan working Humphrey Yogarts in BH, but I listened to a pod cast and in the early days of the engagements, Meg's old manager gave an interview and said she was a great employee. It's a small detail, but then opens up more questions.

R533 - it's pretty on point. I am just nit picking. I wasn't sure if I would enjoy the book because I followed the Revenge threads, DM serials, and all the tea has been seemingly spilled. I think by reading or listening to it first hand, I am picking up things I didn't know before like the Irish golfer and I've been following since the Tangling Tendrils.

The thing that I absolutely to this day can't get over is what a cunt Meghan was during the engagement process. Back during the engagement when I was a Meghan fan and was rooting for her, I was like please don't let anything happen to fuck this up. I was putting myself in her shoes thinking that I would be shitting bricks and desperate to make it down the aisle. I would have licked Kate's snatch and bow to Charlotte to get into that family. She must have felt that she had it in the bag 100% OR maybe she was a bitch b/c subconsciously she was trying to sabotage something she knew deep down wasn't for her, which I have personally done in situations I wanted but knew weren't right.

That balcony-fall clip looks to me like the typical over-analysis of tiny moments, body language, and "microexpressions" that people with an axe to grind indulge in. You can see sadistic laughter or you can see momentary amusement that a cute kid slipped and is now OK--Charlotte didn't even fall down, she just slipped and was caught and comforted by her mom. Someone who doesn't dislike Meghan Markle (a category that excludes, me, by the way, but I don't believe in over-analyzing) wouldn't read that much into it. I also don't think Meghan could have seen the fall from where she was standing. She saw that something was happening and raised herself a little to see, then saw Charlotte being held by Catherine.

It's like that clip of Meghan entering a car that was posted in one of these Harkle threads. It was labeled as showing the "chaos" that a borderline personality causes, but it turned out to be negligible, a meaningless moment.

I think that's pretty hard on Tom Markle. He seems to be fairly uncomplicated guy but from all appearances he was a worthy craftsman in his trade and he was generous to a fault to the serpent's tooth. Yes, he is overweight and lives modestly and isn't very shrewd about managing the pack of hounds that is the tabloid press, but I see a guy dragged into something he never imagined nor sought and is making a poor, if earnest best of it and coping, with mixed results, with being humiliated on an international scale.

And if you're going to insult somebody at least spell the insult right, ya buffoon.

I disagree, I think she's a small-time grifter! Sure, she can talk some rich people into throwing her a few hotel rooms, private plane rides, and dicks, but 30-odd years of hustling only got her a place on Hollywood's C-list and some middle-class men. A world-class grifter would have gotten Charles and the Queen to buy her a castle by the sea and a 1000-emerald tiara, while Meg got nothing Frogmore cottage and "tiaragate".

But of course, I agree that Harry is an idiot.

I would agree if Tom didn't live almost all his life in LA working on TV sets, win an Emmy & spend most of his time on Hollywood sets. He knows how he should act. He might be simple, but he doesn't seem dumb. But, if I were Meghan, I might be embarrassed by him too so I guess it's just a wash.

Not only did Thomas Markle attend her first wedding on the beach in Jamaica, he took pics that still exist. Those are the ones you can find online. Meghan destroyed the wedding video and ordered that all pics be destroyed. (The dress she wore was a copy of Kate's second wedding dress, the sleeveless white thing with the thick belt.) She was already anticipating life after Trevor when she married him. She's a really paranoid, secretive person, to a pathological degree. Witness all the obfuscation about her pregnancies, childbirth, and the existence of the kids since then. There's nothing normal about any of it.

Maybe the situation won't implode. Maybe the Sussexes will be like the Yorks, blundering from one crisis to the next, involved with shady people on the sidelines.

Their current lifestyle including upkeep on their monstrosity of a house, PR, lawyers and security is not sustainable.

But they need to take stock because clearly their current stance as humanitarians and eco-warriors is not working.

That's assuming anyone will be leaving him any inheritance. Especially if it goes to the wife too.

Question: If Harry is still married when/if he inherits some money, is that money considered community property and therefore half hers?

Of course, money could be left in an iron clad trust for Harry's children, set up so nothing will ever find its way into the kids' parents' hands. The RF knows all about trusts.

I don't know which laws will apply to H&M, but let's assume California laws apply. California is a community property state. Any income earned be either one during the time they are married is property of both. But not inheritances. An inheritance received by only one of them is not community property, it is separate property. If Harry receives any in his name only, he must take pains to keep it separate. Preferably at a different bank. And he cannot give her access to it. He cannot commingle any money or assets that he expects to keep separate.

What he will do depends on how he views the future of his marriage, how much he trusts her, what he wants her to have and what he wants his children to have. He should not trust Meghan AT ALL. He needs a strong, dependable, reputable advisor and attorney.

It is reported today that the Sussexes will make a trip to England and Germany during the first week in September. They will visit Dusseldorf for the One Year Out! event for the 2023 Invictus Games, and visit a couple of events of their private charities (i.e.g, not patronages gifted by the Queen, of which they have been stripped). In other words, these will be "private" visits that have nothing to do with the BRF. It will be interesting to see what the "security" arrangements are for those private visits.

This is probably a first: the Sussexes, instead of foaming at the mouth publicly about the Bower book, appear to have ignored it and, instead, are turning the eye in a different direction, a quite sensible approach.

The bit appeared in a variety of papers, but I noted with amusement that CNN, in reporting it, actually printed this about their Jubilee appearance.

"They flew in from the US for the jubilee celebrations and were warmly welcomed by the crowd, arriving to cheers."

A breathtaking piece of misinformation of exactly the type CNN excoriates in Trump. For, as the tens of millions who watched know perfectly well, the Harkles were audibly booed both entering and leaving the cathedral. This was widely reported in the media.

I'll grant that one sort of misinformation is far more damaging than the other, but the principle is the same: the media across the board shamelessly misdirect when it supports the outlet's agenda. And then the media wring its hands about no one trusting news agencies any longer.

The last sentence in the piece more or less announces that there may have been something less than a warm welcome last time, but, of course, doesn't state why. If they weren't going to tell the truth a couple of sentences above, they may as well have left that last bit out.

Just finished reading the book. It’s not a hatchet job, although no doubt the Harkles would say it is. It’s not page after page of sycophantic drivel the way they’d prefer it to be, either. There’s not much there any DLer wouldn’t recognize but by building the narrative story after damning story, all thoroughly sourced (the reason it’s been met with silence from Montecito?), Bower shows the reader both sides of H&M’s many sad tales. Their “truth” and everyone else’s vary greatly. Most of their assertions just plain prove to be untrue but it’s their personalities - entitlement squared - that make it impossible to sympathize with them.

R578 Well observed. That was my impression, as well, after reading the book. It's a carefully built portrait that is very hard to counter.

Bower is promising an updated version with "new information" in the paperback edition. With any luck, it will come out just as bottom-feeder Scobie's "new" book with "earthshaking" revelations comes out.

As to those patronages, who knows? If they would rather not have either of the Sussexes, they're unlikely to state that publicly.

I think Mayhew and Meghan parted ways, but don't quote me, I might be misremembering.

I think that bit about Princess Anne and the Trust Fund is unfounded rumour. First, no one would have put Anne in charge of Charles' sons' trust funds. The lawyers and financial people overseeing the funds would have been names as Trustees, and/or the executor of Diana's Will. All that would have been set up long before Diana died. And the age at which the funds were accessible would have been 30 at the latest.

Why on earth would Princess Anne, of all people, between whom and Diana no love was ever lost, been made Trustees of Diana's sons' trust funds?!

Interestingly, neither Harry nor Meghan are listed as a speaker at the OYW summit, although Markle is listed as an 'influential leader', ahem, on their summit home page and serves as a global ambassador for the organization. Perhaps they have some unannounced rule at the summit or will introduce another speaker. Otherwise, it looks as though they have no reason to attend.

Harry is very prominently featured on the WellChild site, so it is clear that the organization still values his patronage.

I wonder if there are any legal implications of dissolving in California a marriage in the UK, re. the division of property? Probably not. People like to seek California divorces.

I wonder, if when the money gets tight, the RF strategy will be to offer them a home in the UK, rather than buying them off again. By that time the next king will probably be the new king and an offer like that is bound to create conflict between the two. I am reading the Robert Hardman biography of the Queen and he states again and again what an incrementalist she is, which explains DL's frustration with the snail's pace. It's how she's always done business and all things considered, the whole show is still running.
