I don’t entertain those types of articles. It’s the shiny object to get your mind off of what happened last Friday.

Unless Meghan already has a private secretary we don't know about, that is a stretch to blame a yet to be hired private secretary for clashes. I'm not sure how that would be possible.
This article seems more like a continuation of discussing the bickering between the various households' staff that led to the resignation of the Queen's private secretary. Perhaps the old timers just don't like change and feel threatened. Philip has retired and the Queen is reducing her engagements and travel. As a result Family members are picking up more engagements. William, Andrew and Harry have been busy with travel and engagements over the past month. Perhaps BP thinks they, rather than W,A& H's staff should should be doing more and conflicts result.

Daily Fail = Ignore.

Which is it? The younger royals have the reputation of being work shy on one hand and then, on the other hand, we have the Fail (from Rudolph's quote) screaming that the younger royals get "red carpet hungry" ego stroking fever.

Of course too, they have to throw in that there are already squabbles and discontent and food fights going on behind the scenes.

Stuff like this in print isn't worth the time of day when you really think about it.

Meghan's staff will have to know their place
Actually, Dickie was referring to the current staff if one looks at the original interview. And he's made it very clear and quite upset about this headline on his twitter.

Let's just wait until Meghan has a staff before we talk about them knowing their "place"?

Tweets from Dickie Arbiter

This is total 'fake news'. At no time did the Sky interview never refered to Harry & Meghan dailym.ai/2yoI3Eg via @Femail

Told @DailyMailUK I didn't want to elaborate on Friday's stand alone interview. Asked for it to be take down.

Posters really need to stop taking the Daily Mail online as being true. It is not the newspaper and is not manned by journos. It exists for clickbait.

The serious issue is that this sort of rubbish promotes the same divisive environment that existed between Diana/Sarah and others before them - and that is appalling and shouldnt be supported.

How anyone, even the daily fail could think it would refer to Meghan Seriously, she has no staff yet to be causing issues.

the Daily Mail playing to their base audience. They did the same with The Middletons. Trying to portray women as trouble makers. I wish people would take their dog whistling with a grain of salt and just ignore them. But they know their base audience does not read the complete article before raging.

Dickie really let loose on his Twitter today about it, but I give him the sideeye after some things he has said about Meghan.

Also, that story about Meghan quitting Suits has been picked up by every royal reporter on Twitter, but the Daily Fail is saying Suits hasn't yet been renewed.

And finally, one royal commentator said that Meghan can't just move to London, she has to go through the Visa process. Well, who is to say that hasn't already started?

Well, lets wait and see what this fall and new year will bring.

Folks, don’t pay any attention to the twisting of the Dickie Arbiter interview.

Dickie's initial response to the relationship was similar to Ingrid Seward and the other old timers. And now they've all changed their views since everyone sees the writing on the wall.

Suits hasn't been officially renewed yet, but it hasn't been cancelled either. It's likely they are handling the delicate PR situation.

It's sad to me that Dickie and Ingrid changed their tune about Meghan once they saw the writing on the wall. To me it seems it had nothing to do with how happy Meghan and Harry are or the Meghan is a lovely, accomplished smart woman who is an excellent role model.

And that petition has been around since the November letter. Hasn't gained any traction so far, highly doubt it would in the future.

This in what networks do .As it stands all the actors are out of contract mid November so NBC will make initial offers to renew to them ,see how much the salaries escalate if they are willing to renew(each time the actors renew the demands usually go up) ,they then work out the budget per episode (and if Meghan is out her salary and that of Gina Torres would pay for 3/4 actors at the bottom of the escalator),and if the main players are willing to re-up and the ad revenue/syndication fees don't outstrip the per episode cost it might get renewed - but they have until Feb/March until they have to make an announcement .

Best recent example of this is Once Upon A Time where they lost 3 of the 4 main original characters for this year and the large drop in salaries saved them enough to make it profitable enough to bring back

Personally I think she told them months ago she wanted out and they will have had time to have a plan to write her off anyway .Her and Mike will be over and she will go work for her dad.

It’s hurry up an wait time. Everybody and their mother knows an engagement is coming, it’s just matter of when.

I think they’ll wait until after Christmas just to have a final holiday together before the chaos begins.

I've removed a few off-topic posts. Let's not start discussing random online petitions, or the comment section from other websites. Thanks.

What I meant is that they usually announce renewal in July or August. Obviously they are handling things differently this time.

Its actually late. Season 7 was renewed in August of last year, announced.

One would think any negotiations would be done by now if they plan on being renewed, with actors. Because if any are leaving the show, or the show ending, filming for season 7 ends in just over a month from now.

Could I be wrong-could it be the Meghan's Visa is already being worked on? Wouldn't that be the smart thing to do?

A partner visa, which she would need to apply for as she would have no job there to apply for a work visa, on average takes between 6-12 weeks. I'd think if the decision had been made for her to move after the season, the process has already been started.

Which is why I am puzzled as the comment I said that royal commentator made about Meghan needing her Visa to move. You would think maybe it had occurred to the pundit that the Visa was already in the works.

In other news, I am wondering if Meghan is already looking at stylists in the UK? Any ideas on who she might consider or do you think British Vogue might help her?
