Catherine and William versus Meghan and Harry

Looking at the latest visits for Catherine and William where they seemed to be there to learn about the groups they were visiting and to give support and praise and NOT talk about themselves; versus Meghan’s two visits which seemed to have been used to show how benevolent she is and to further lecture the ‘needy’. The 2 groups didn’t ask for a visit so if they weren’t seeking help why did she go? I had great sympathy for her but by going out on the publicity trail so soon after the Sandringham meeting, it makes me feel she’s sticking 2 fingers up to the RF, saying look I am needed over here, I can’t be bothered to do it in the UK but I can in Canada. Also I found it interesting she didn’t need to hold Harry’s hand in order to get through the visit. As per my previous post I still do feel sorry for Harry, but I have lost all sympathy for Meghan.

I would love it if the media completely ignored Harry and Meghan for a while. I wonder how they would react to that?

Kate Middleton always behaves with dignity, even though she doesn't always look as though she's enjoying herself.
Meghan Markle is patronising. She talks down to everyone. She behaves as though she's doing us all a favour.

I think many of us are relieved that she and Prince Harry have given up on this country and want to make a name for themselves elsewhere.

A very adversarial thread title!

She is wanting privacy so who is tipping off the press that she’s visiting these places I wonder. There was also a photograph of her climbing into a seaplane the other day so whoever took the photo had obviously released it to the press or the press had already been alerted to her trip.

Oh dear, yet another Meghan bashing thread. Sad.

If she keeps giving photo shoots she will be spoken of, it’s how celebrities work.

Why waste time talking about them at all, whether adversarial or not?

ladymuck Thu 16-Jan-20 14:06:43

Now that they are leaving, we can all give vent without feeling guilty.

Or alternatively, you could get a life?

And they’re off again - what is this collective madness on GN?

lucywinter Thu 16-Jan-20 14:13:53

Shouldn't be doing this. hmm

lucywinter Thu 16-Jan-20 14:15:12

I think we should wait till it's all sorted out finally by the Royal Family. See what happens then.

suziewoozie Thu 16-Jan-20 14:15:44

Could HQ rename it RoyalNet ?

suziewoozie Thu 16-Jan-20 14:17:52

I wonder if K and W have a better sex life than H and M? I wonder how often they do it and in what position ? Well I’ve no idea but I could ask PM or in the time honoured tradition of GN just make it up.

There could be Royal Family forum on GN. Seem to remember there is one on MN.

suziewoozie Thu 16-Jan-20 14:22:11

Yes lucy all the hate and indignation in one place, it might with any luck spontaneously combust

suziewoozie Thu 16-Jan-20 14:23:52

Is there a hide button on this site?

JenniferEccles Thu 16-Jan-20 14:45:50

I don’t think there will be a Harry and Meghan for very much longer.

He has got to come to his senses sooner or later hasn’t he?

Her demands on him (my way or the Highway I think is the saying) will increase to a point where he will see her for the selfish controlling woman she is.

Is there a hide button on this site

Yes, there is. Hth.

The headings for these 'hate Meghan' threads are getting more blatant.
Were we always this Country?

lucywinter Thu 16-Jan-20 14:56:43

It does seem to be the thing (on Twitter at least) to be either Team William and Kate or Team Sussexes.

Yesterday's Bradford visit did give William and Kate a boost.

lucywinter Thu 16-Jan-20 14:57:15

Maybe we were Jaycee but there was no internet to show it on.

Artdecogran Thu 16-Jan-20 14:58:47

Actually it wasn’t a hate Meghan thread. It was meant to be a who does it better thread.

Satisfied that H and M were domiciling themselves in Canada, no longer lead stories in the press and TV news. Rushed into the supermarket and there on the rack, OK or some such trash, full page cover of a smirking H & M; headline" We don't have any regrets about what we have done!"

I would SO like to smack their silly faces.
