Harry & Megan to step back from Public life

No idea. IIRC there was a massive stink when Diana was stripped of her title. Perhaps it would be wiser to let her keep some sort of title tied to a massive "shut the f*ck up clause" for the rest of her life if divorce happens.
....ah... but Diana was an instant Princess of Hearts and the public were smitten and on her side from Day One, regardless of anything she may have done or who she may have had a fumble with, as long as she gave that coy hurt look to camera. English Rose or stock acquired for breeding, depending on your POV, the public and media loved her....

Me-gain on the other hand has hardly been in post 30 minutes and there are enough stories around of the "What Meghan wants, Meghan GETS!!" variety to distance her from Royal's loyal fanbase... If these two were to try their hand at following the examples of the Danish or Dutch Royal Family and get a normal job and cycle around town amongst the normal people that would be one thing, but they want to be Royal social meedja Influencrs so it's not going to happen...
 
When has anything demonising Meghan been published? Stuff about the cost of Frogmore renovations isn't personal at all.

Hiding details of baby's birthplace, wasn't even reported as against her.

Whilst fully supportive of this couple and their family they have to realise that the Constitutional Monarch is bigger than both of them.

And anyone who can p1ss off to Canada for what is probably Grandad's last Christmas can't be worth my support.

Finally, the BBC World at one is sympathising with her being bullied treatment by the family, especially William.
As a matter of principle the BBC are wrong.
I think it's fair to say that everything the red tops have posted about Meagan has been negative, they have also tried to make up bs between the couples to add more drama. It sells papers but it doesn't do the monarchy any good.

Do you think that's what Harry did - battlefield tourism?

I remember a thread a couple of years back on here too, suggesting he was thick and got a helping hand through his Apache training.

It's quite an eye-opener when one doesn't have to rely on second-hand "news" from media vendors who in turn rely on sensationalisation to turn a profit.

And the only thing I was suggesting was that perhaps we shouldn't judge a man unless we've walked a mile in his shoes, and yet we do...

Not so. Pages of wedding news, Wedding pictures, wedding details. Drooling over the dress, their honeymoon, their African trip, blah blah. Not that I read newspapers except the Dorset Echo, but until she started whining I hadn't picked up on what you're talking about at all.

I wish the press would give the racism thing a rest. It's tantamount to saying " I can do anything I like because of my colour, but if you say anything against me, you're only doing it because of my colour".
People genuinely welcomed Meg into the UK and the Royal Family. I remember that the celebration at the wedding was really rather genuine. True, some people expressed doubts (prob me and other yuppie subaltern types who think they know best but can’t boil an egg) , but that was because of her personality and actressy background, rather than her ethnicity. The majority of people genuinely wished them well.

But since then, they've become whining, self centred, greedy whingers. They've lectured us about "climate change" whilst making good use of air transport themselves, including private jets, even taking their own vehicles to Africa.

They were secretive about their child's birth and christening, and introduced him to the world while in Africa, rather than here in the UK, where people pay for their lifestyle. We've had Meghan banging on about being a "proud feminist", and generally displaying her woke credentials. They don't seem to realise that this gets up people's noses big time! And as for the "poor little me, my life is so hard", from a couple who have every luxury and every care taken of them....how do they think that appears to people going out to work every day, facing long commutes, doing shift work or working in all weathers? Ginge & Meg only seem to want publicity if it is nice fluffy publicity.

$500,000 for a one hour personal appearance.

Michelle Obama got $60,000,000 for her book.

They will be rolling it.

Sales spike with anything they show on photos. Advertising if they go so low would fI’ll the coffers to bursting.

I don't mind admitting I'm a Daily Mail reader (along with millions of others - far more than who read this site!) and if anything, in my opinion, the Mail's coverage of Harry and Meghan veered towards the sycophantic and adulatory, certainly in the early days of their relationship, all the way through the nuptials and up to the point where little Archie appeared. Granted, there have been a number of critical articles; but it's a two way street and the couple haven't helped the situation with their quite frankly, bizarre and confrontational behaviour of late.
For them to suggest the British press is somehow more hostile than the media in the USA is laughable.

What the story really reinforces is the wisdom that our grandparents' generation in refusing to accept old Edward VIII's choice of a wife. In an exact parallel, a dimwitted self-indulgent prince has chosen a frowsy, ageing bride with a rich sexual history (you just know she sounds like a Californian porn star in the sack and allows sicknote to touch her arrse), a rapacious greed and a deeply rotten choice in associates!

I wonder if Grandma is now calling her lawyers in with her last will and testament to make a few adjustments?
 
I spent social time yesterday with around 20-odd solid professional citizens.
None of them expressed much of a froth over it all.
I think the majority of " regular Joes" getting on with their own jobs, family life etc can see it all far enough and could care less. Hardly impacts any of us does it?
One could make a strong case for January being the most depressing month of the year. The average bloke is back to work, skint(and fat)from Christmas, the weather's bloody horrible and the summer holidays are so far away they can't even be seen on the horizon.

Any sympathy they feel will almost certainly be reserved for HM herself. For Meg, I rather suspect the view will be something like, "Feck off home then, you whinging Yank bitch, and take that pussy-whipped, ungrateful Ginger tosser with you".

I presume you're not familiar with how tabloid papers work.

I certainly do not appreciate CNN's versions of what is happening.

They are 2 spoiled adults: He should know better, and she is from Hollywood, where it's all about "ME!" They seem to have been appallingly rude to the Queen, who has always appeared to me to be intelligent, thoughtful and considerate. My commission genuinely meant the world to me. So with that in mind- Throughout the long history of the monarchy in this country , there have been many members of the "firm" who's behaviour has been less than ideal .

This current pair are nothing more than a blip on the screen , Blame is irrelevant , they are not ordinary people . They are both the product of broken families who have become accustomed to getting their own way and who simply want to continue doing so . They are only important in their own minds and should simply be encouraged to fade away and allow the true royals to get on with the job .

If they were unhappy in any way,they - or at least he - could have talked with her. It seems that too much of the narcissistic Diana has made its way into Harry's DNA. Little rascal aren’t I !!
 
Still, a resounding "Huzzah!" should be shouted...

Constitutional crisis has been averted as the Guv'nor is fully supportive of their transitioning arrangements. Thread closed presumably... What are we gonna talk about now?


(Methinks the Queen isn't entirely in tune with public opinion on this and there's a long way to go... and once the matter of paying for security is disclosed to the Canucks the happy non-royal couple will find a similar swell against the transition on that side of the pond too)
