Duke and Duchess of Sussex, General News Part 2: December 2018 -

I think everyone has said their piece about the last few weeks of stories written about Meghan (5 am texts, wedding tiara, church air-fresheners, relationships with staff, etc.). The conversation has gone around in circles and no new information has been posted, so let's move on from those stories/discussion.

Also, let's not turn this thread into a discussion about royal journalists and the media. Thanks.

Again on national television yesterday Piers Morgan accused Meghan Markle of 'acting her way to the top' in his own typical rant after accusing her of ghosting him......

He's kind of a whiner, isn't he? They were not close enough friends for there to be any ghosting. I think it's hilarious that her co-star also avoided Piers for over a year and Piers didn't realize why and is still complaining about it.

I guess this is on the same theme. Published today on the MailOnline.

Meghan Markle is a ruthless social climbing actress who has landed the role of her life and is determined to milk it for all she can - and that’s why the Palace is beginning to turn on her

Let’s put this into perspective. ALL this over someone he met ONCE?

What’s even funnier is how pissed he is at Rick Hoffman for choosing Meghan over him.

It’s time to move on. But I get it, this is the most attention he’s gotten in awhile, so he’ll milk her name for all it’s worth.

Here’s the video from last months Loose Women where Nadia said Meghan just seems too “effected”. I will say of all the criticism I read or see about Meghan is that she doesn’t come across as sincere. She’s a little too ‘polished’ I guess.

It warms my heart to see Meghan so happy. Not only is she in love and is about to become a mother for the first time, but the British people have embraced her as their own. Everyone also embraced her on the tour. That must fill her with so much joy and that’s not something that can be faked.

Long may the Sussex love and happiness continue!

Despite attacks by some people who have questionable motives & unscrupulous behavior, Meghan is well respected by many. It is heartwarming to see people who have been inspired by her & know her for her generosity & kindness.

Young women who knew Meghan and were helped by her, before other people heard about her, including Prince Harry or those who have been helped since. Meghan’s sincerity shines brightly.

It seems Peirs Morgan, Meghan's former friend, seems to have a strong view on her

As proven by these unnecessary articles, the most appropriate action was taken.

Consider this a show of support for a young woman who is five months pregnant, in a new role, in a new country and has become the subject of such vitriol it would destroy the strongest of individuals.

Great article; and I trust Meghan took Michelle's advice to heart. Meghan is planning to announce her royal patronage at the beginning of next year. Looking forward.

Think what you will of Piers Morgan, but it is fairly evident that Meghan reached out to him to network and advance her own career. And there is absolutely no problem whatsoever with this-- this is what actresses, and people in all fields, do, as Piers acknowledges. Piers himself has no problem with this. The entire business world is made up of these sorts of relationships. The reality is, though, that the very day she met Prince Harry, for whatever reason, she decided she did not need this major networking connection. (And whatever opinion people hold of Piers, he is indeed a major networking connection.) People can draw their own conclusions about this. Personally, I find it strange that someone would throw away a professional connection that she spent literally years cultivating after one date. To me, personally, this implies that she met Harry and decided right away that she no longer needed important connections in her industry-- in other words, she knew she wouldn't be continuing in the industry. Others disagree and that is ok.

And again, say what you will about Piers, but this was a professional networking connection that she cultivated-- his own screenshots are conclusive of this and no one has ever denied it. Anyone would be upset if they responded to someone in their industry and that person took them up on the offer, decided they no longer needed the connection, and cut off all contact. It is rude whether they were friends or professional contacts. Whether others would go on air or write stories about it is another matter-- but then, that is the world they live in.

You are absolutely correct! She did cultivate a relationship based on her profession as an actress and she saw him as an avenue for promoting her show! Piers and Meghan also had similar views on gun control.

And I agree...there was NOTHING wrong with Meghan having a relationship with Piers Morgan at that point in her life.

But let's not be naive. Do we really think that Meghan's relationship with Harry and the royals would have gotten as far as it did if it was known that she continued a close link with Piers Morgan?

I loved Princess Diana but her close relationship with some media to the point that she leaked information to them about the royals did untold damage to the British monarchy at that time.

Under no circumstances should that reoccur!

When it came down to it Meghan had to make a choice between Piers Morgan OR a growing relationship with Prince Harry which became very serious. And she did make that choice to HER benefit. Piers Morgan can take a seat and forever mourn about being ghosted.

End of.

I think the gripes are from Meghan's self assuranceness. Those people no matter their position want the American to reach out to them and "show her the ropes". They never had a chance to get inside the royal circle and when that didn't happened it went crazy. I hope Meghan forges her path to do a lot of good things for the UK and beyond with the help of people who can give her sound advice and support.

Yes, it is a good article. I like that the author points out
"If the Duchess of Sussex behaves like a Princess she is getting above herself and has abdicated her responsibilities as an independent woman to speak out. If she speaks out she is roundly condemned for not knowing her place at the palace".

In regards to your other post, I agree, no person needs to keep toxic people in their lives. Considering the ongoing, ridiculous behaviour, it was most appropriate that contact was cut.

If she did cut off contact with Piers, it seems she made the right decision.

I’m sorry but how did piers Morgan help advance her career exactly? He followed her first by his own admission. He is the one who made the first move. She reached out afterwards. They chatted about her show, she sent him episodes and they made small chat. Again by his own admission.

Meghan networked like everyone did, including Piers when he hit that follow bottom and replied to that DM. They meet once when she was in London unrelated to him. She was being nice but honestly we don’t know her side of this “pub date” he loves to brag about. What if he was a creep? What if he tossed out some inappropriateness? Look how he acting. It’s possible. At the end of the day Piers just clickbait.

Or it’s as simple as he is a tabloid writer with a very bad relationship with the royals and she decided to end talking to him. They weren’t besties. Im sure he has done the same to people and honestly had she not married who she did, he likely wouldn’t care. He missed an opportunity and was rejected. His ego is bruised.
