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.

The queen saw the emotional upset in her family when Edward was cut out of the family, she was very fond of her
Uncle David, wonder if Margaret chose the name David for her son after her uncle.

I never trusted Megan after her solo walk down the aisle.

I thought the headlines in some of yesterday newspapers
amusing , showing Charles, Camilla,William and Kate visiting
the rehab centre ‘ The New Fab Four’.

I think that the Edward and Mrs Simpson saga hangs over the head of the Queen and has influenced her decision. I also think Prince Charles is being somewhat indulgent towards Harry, as perhaps we all are towards our children. I don’t know what to think about William, maybe he went along with his father and grandmother because he could see how hurt they were, and how they wanted to leave the door open for Harry to return to the fold if it doesn’t work out for him.
What really gets to me is the fact that H+M have lied, they said they wanted a quiet, private life, away from the media. Well it’s obvious that they don’t want that, what’s private and quiet about giving a keynote speech to 400 extremely rich people, including Tony Blair who was apparently in the audience. And now going on to negotiate another well paid contract with yet another bank with dubious morality. It’s hardly private or quiet is it?

Yes as jane10 says so true. Unfortunately there is nothing anyone can do, as it seems even his (R) family ha e no influence over him!

Jane10 Tue 11-Feb-20 18:22:44

True Maddyone!

maddyone Tue 11-Feb-20 17:33:32

I know Namsnanny, it’s extremely disappointing. They could have done so much good, instead they are lining their own pockets. I really feel that the selling of Harry and his grief demeans both Harry and the Royal Family. And our country too.

Namsnanny Tue 11-Feb-20 15:52:17

Shame though maddyone ...I think of all the good they could do from their position.
A well connected good looking influential couple, they could be such a good force in the world!
Instead they look to sell themselves to the highest bidder!!
So disappointing.

maddyone Mon 10-Feb-20 14:33:43

It certainly does look that way Namsnanny.

Namsnanny Mon 10-Feb-20 14:32:16

Well they seem to be doing exactly what some people thought they would do.....chasing celebrity and money.
First chance they get they're on a private jet!
What use are all their hollow words about the environment now?
Speaking at a billionaires banquet for 3/4 million dollars (or more) whilst WE pay for their security???
Total hypocracy.

Anniebach Mon 10-Feb-20 13:13:32

maddy in my opinion, he is dancing to Megan’s tune.

maddyone Mon 10-Feb-20 12:45:57

Posted to soon.

Be auctioned off to the highest bidder, is what I was going to say. I would find it demeaning. I’m surprised Harry doesn’t, because whatever we think of the royal family, lack of dignity is not something we normally associate with them. The Queen has had to cope, in her 94th year, with the horrible situation of her son Andrew, and then on top of that, this undignified situation with Harry and Meghan.

maddyone Mon 10-Feb-20 12:41:45

Indeed Annie, but will that really make him happy? I think it won’t, but that’s just my opinion. I wouldn’t give up my family, my country, and my job to follow someone who I loved back to their country, and then be effectively auttioned

Anniebach Mon 10-Feb-20 12:30:16

He is a celebrity now maddy , an American celebrity

maddyone Mon 10-Feb-20 11:13:54

Indeed Annie, how absolutely true.
I heard that Harry gave his (highly paid) speech at the J P Morgan conference all about how he was affected by his mother’s death and his ongoing therapy. I’m wondering how many more times he can talk about his mother’s death for profit. It seems somewhat unseemly to me to be honest. Profiteering from the death of a loved one, particularly when he comes from such a wealthy family, seems distasteful to me.
In any case, J P Morgan is a company that is about financial services as I understand it, so I’m at a loss as to understand why they wanted him as a speaker, except for the kudos of him being a royal prince.

Yes, Harry has taken the right course for himself, he gets the title, the mansion, the security, and leaves his brother to do
the work.

grannypiper Mon 10-Feb-20 08:10:08

I wish Harry all the best and think he has taken the right course for himself. If he wants respect then he has to pay for his own security, home and travel. He also needs to stop preaching

Er, Marydoll, you missed this one!!

Is there not a difference between slimming down working royals and slimming down the family ?

If the working royals were reduced to four what a loss to many charities.

eazybee Sat 01-Feb-20 18:17:08

Yes you are right Anniebach; he made a complaint.
Bit daft really though, wasn't it.

Barmeyoldbat Sat 01-Feb-20 18:05:22

Well I hope they find happiness, but not sure they will. I think Megan will be ok but Harry will struggle. Anyway good luck to them. This is the start of slimmed down RF and I am all in agreement with it.

Send that lot to the tower. Daft buggers.

Harry and Meghan’s Big Funding Source Is Private. Sort of.
