At 35yrs old, Prince Harry has served 10yrs in the Army , fought in Afghanistan
Started the Invictus games for wounded soldiers
Walked across the South Pole
Raised Hundreds of millions for charities
Helped raise 1 billion for 9/11
Supporter of 24 Charities
Lost his mother at a young age,( as did William)
William has also been exemplary in all he does.
If he is happy with Meghan , living somewhere else , good luck to him,he deserves it.
Time to give them a little respect.

Well I hope the queen’s message about Meghan will still all these bitchy tongues, but somehow I doubt it.

It’s all been a storm in a Royal Doulton teacup. All sorted now so I sincerely wish them a happy future as minor royals. I’m not fussed about reading about their celebrity lifestyle so they are now an irrelevance to me.

As William is definitelydue to be king one day, that would be a much more serious issue, than a prince who is 6th in line.

I just wish Harry and Meghan all the best, the nastiness from some of the tabloids, their commenters and Piers Morgan is nothing short of bullying. It's such a pity that Meghan's father and her awful sister are more interested in selling stories to the media than in being decent family members.

sparkii - your opinions lead me to suspect that you have been watching The Crown and taking much of it for gospel. A pinch of salt is required, methinks!

suziewoozie Sun 19-Jan-20 11:38:53

anno would that be the same pinch of salt that should accompany all royal ‘news’?

I really want to be wrong but...……...

So it is fine to make money from being Royal without actually Being Royal in terms of any duties.
So all the rights without the responsibilities?
Which is becoming a common trait and not a positive one.

Because M&H plan is to cash in on their Royalness, but not do the boring part

A PR chap said they will become as famous as Brad and Angelina and David and Victoria !

Bridgeit I am in total; agreement with you - and that is the only contribution I will make to this thread

I'm with the positive posters. I've never been a royalist, but I wish Harry and Megan a happy life in Canada with their son. Harry and William's mother was given a rotten deal by the older generation of the RF and I think they're getting their come uppance now. As someone else said who wouldn't want to distance themselves from the likes of Charles and Andrew.
I also think this can be laid at the door of the British tabloid newspapers who are allowed to print lies and scandal without penalty. The damage the latter have done and continue to do to this country is unforgivable.

I probably heard & read the same announcements as everyone else & what I saw was the Queen being very loving and kind to Harry, Meghan & Archie as he was really finding the demands of Royal life too much on his mental health. His brother was his crutch is now a family man & everyone agrees Harry has been a bit lost since his brother married. Now he has his own wife who adores him & sees the stresses the demands of public duty have on his mental health.
The aggressive attacks of certain journalists and presenters were the last straw. We really as a country must demand Leveson2 to clean up the disgraceful reputation as the worst media in the world. I can name abt ten journalists who know very well they caused this upset to the Queen. They (all Royal correspondents) were banned from a Royal event yesterday.
An assumption or a whisper becomes truth to them, they know there is an elderly public who feed on lies & hatred. And worse, racism. Because that is what is at the root of this.
The Queen herself hinted at the media hatred which has poisoned minds. These "Royal Correspondents" should be sacked, it will not be long before they turn their attention to another female member of the Royal Family. The Far Right want to get rid of the Monarchy to make Boris Johnson a President. The next step will be getting rid of our Judiciary.

That's a stretch!

Callistemon Sun 19-Jan-20 19:34:56

King of the World, surely??
(stretching credulity even further)

endre123 Sun 19-Jan-20 19:54:04

Not a stretch at all! Far Right parties always try to attack the Constitution and we have seen that already by lying to the Queen. This Govt were also in contempt of Parliament, something that had not happened in moden times. The Far Right journalists who attacked Meghan are the same who spread lies during the General Election campaign. Some believe we no longer live in a democracy. There will be attacks on everything we value until thuis Givt gets its;' way on everything, including destroying the Monarchy.

Good article in the Guardian on how the Sun and Mirror and Piers M have an interest in bad mouthing the couple.

Oopsminty Sun 19-Jan-20 20:28:12

To infinity and beyond!

Thank you MOnica

lemongrove Sun 19-Jan-20 22:08:14

endre.......where did you get your idea that ‘far right parties always try to attack the constitution’ from? Are you talking of the UK?
The Conservative Party isn’t a ‘far right Party’ in any case, but there is no evidence to support your statement.
I suspect you already know this and it’s just your personal conspiracy theory.

lemongrove Sun 19-Jan-20 22:10:03

Harry is already publicly moaning about the outcome of the talks......he wants it all ways.

Anniebach Sun 19-Jan-20 22:21:02

He has made a speech, why oh why doesn’t he stop , more
about his mother and the press, he is either using her to get the sympathy of the public or he is in denial.
