Well, I think the roles are reversed now...who's colonizing who..?? The cultural Americanization of Europe (and I'm not referring to MM marrying into the BRF!) has been well under way for more than 50 years now. Just look around!

The cultural Americanization of Europe
This is VERY true, and pertinent, most Europeans have 'issues' with this , and have done so for decades.
Whist many know and appreciate America, [and American's as individuals] the OVERWHELMING 'Americanisation' of almost every sphere is a fact..and fiercely resented by millions.

One English example [for which America will NEVER be forgiven] is what happened to Cadbury. {You mess with our favourite Chocolate 'at your peril'}.

Let's get back on topic. The discussion about the state of the media, the Founding Fathers, the relationship between Britain and America, etc. is off-topic. Any further off-topic posts will be deleted.

Since Prince Harry has been appointed Captain General Royal Marines, as the successor of Prince Philip, and since the uniform and insignia worn by the Captain General are those of a field marshal, Will Prince Harry as a Royal Duke also ride now behind The Queen at the next Trooping of Colour?

Nope. Royal Marines are not part of the Household Division and only the Household Division takes part in the Trooping.

Had they wanted Harry on horseback during Trooping he would have taken over The Grenadier Guards from Prince Philip rather than the marine appointment.

We’ll see The Duke of York this year

Well last year, Field Marshal HRH The Duke of Kent, did not ride behind The Queen, but rather was in a carriage with the Duke of Gloucester. Probably because of his age, he is now 83 i believe. He didn't even wear his uniform but he rather was in morning suit. Since he has been the Regimental Colonel of the Scots Guards, maybe the position will open up in the near future for The Duke of Sussex.

“Dear Meghan, or should I say Dear Duchess, First, congratulations on a stunningly successful wedding.

You couldn’t have scripted a more perfect day, though of course, that’s probably exactly what you did. And frankly, who can blame you? What’s the point in being a professional actress if you can’t turn in an Oscar-winning performance for the biggest role of your life? I loved it all.

So it’s fair to say that Season One of your new life ended in a spectacular triumph, with US TV ratings higher than those for William and Kate’s wedding. (In Britain, ratings were down 30% but don’t take that personally – William and Kate are going to be our King and Queen and you guys aren’t.)

However, the real challenge starts now. If you thought being a royal girlfriend was difficult, just wait until you see how hard it is being a royal wife.

This morning, you’ll have awoken next to your handsome Prince at Kensington Palace, giddy with joy and hope – especially if your butler brought you the newspapers in bed.

The media that alarmed you by going so erratically off-message, and occasionally being downright offensive, as your romance progressed has now come together as one to sing your praises from the rafters.

It would be impossible to see all the ecstatic headlines and not get slightly carried away with one’s own sense of self-worth.”

Piers isn't Meghan's old friend though.

Adding this article to the pile of tens of exactly the sane nature written by people who don't have any clue.

I think it had higher ratings because it was on Saturday and it started later in the day than most royal weddings and people didn't have to get up before dawn to watch it.

I think Piers is bitter he didn't get invited to the wedding. But then this is why!

Don't know about not having to get up at dawn. It was just an hour later than the Cambridge wedding, and all the coverage started around 4:30AM - 5AM EST. Around 2AM west coast. If that's not crack of dawn, I'm not sure what it is. And as for the weekend thing, it's actually easier to get people waking up early on the weekday as they likely had to get up for work anyways. Saturday is about the only day to sleep in for a lot of people.

I think Edward would fill in a vacant colonel position before Harry. And while yes he didn't serve in the military, he already holds a few honorary military appointments so that isn't a problem.

Piers calling Meghan his old friend is amusing. His desperation to latch in to her is truly comical. And he hasn't let up for almost 2 years.

Bryony Gordon wrote about her private meeting with Meghan a new months back. She reveals that Meghan has a project that will be launching in a few months and that she feels that her focus will be on female issues. She posted about it on her Instagram.

There are 2 other regiments:

the Life Guards (other half of Household Cavalry with Blues and Royals) - Colonel is FM The Lord Guthrie of Craigiebank

Coldstream Guards (one of Foot Guard Regiments) - Colonel is L-Gen Sir James Bucknell

If I remember correctly, Bryony Gordon is the journalist that Harry first spoke to about his own struggles with grief over his mother's death and how he kept it in for 20 years. Right?

As for Piers, yes it is amusing. Especially since he's admitted that she's been ghosting him since then. It's time to take a hint, Piers.
