Well, I agree there is no comparison but I also believe the Dutch press is SO MUCH BETTER than the British press.

The issue was discussed in great detail before and during the wedding, and at the christenings of the Triple A's. The government investigated and if I recall Maxima's father apologized for his role. The Dutch press reported it and moved on.

IF this relationship goes the distance, I would bet anything that these random people are going to pop up again during said engagement, marriage and birth of any children. And again its not her immediate family its her father's first wife. It's her half siblings's half brother, how ridiculous does that sound. It's all about the dolla

One thing we know for certain out of all of this is who will definitely *not* be on the royal wedding invitation list should one be needed to be drawn up.

When one becomes famous or at least well known via the press, the sharks [family and friends both old and new] see dollar signs. But hey, it's worked for Jessica Hay.

Does anyone know if the Daily Mail pay for stories or just pictures....
Those scroungers are half siblings 20 years older than her and some half in law married to the father...that is NOT her immediate family.

With all the talk about half-sibling's half brother from a marriage over two decades ago and all the mischief and mayhem these pseudo relatives are trying to cause, perhaps the best punishment for the crimes against a half sister or sibling from another marriage of a parent (or would that be half parent? I'm getting confused by this point) is to be drawn and quartered.

Sorry... had to do it. My funny bone needed tickling.

If you look closely I state that the father's first wife and her son are not Meghan's immediate family.

We are going to have to split hairs about her half siblings and whether or not they count as immediate family. I don't have any half siblings so I can't speak on whether or not half siblings count the same as full siblings but I am going to give them [or at least the brother] the benefit of the doubt that they do. Now whether or not they are close because there are 20 years between them is another matter.

I totally agree but you better believe if that happens...there is going to be an article in the Daily Fail about how her awful and cruel sister didn't invite her to wedding.

Isn't it something. The half siblings half sibling. It would be funny if it wasn't so ridiculous.

Problematic for me is the age difference, they where adults while Meghan was a child. This seems like child abuse for them to use their connection with someone much younger than they are for their own gain. To me anything that say is highly suspect and does not reflect badly upon Meghan.

Seems to me the British papers are using these pseudo relatives to ruin this relationship.

child abuse um.....how? Meghan is not a child. Nor is telling stories about her to media, abuse. Done in bad taste, and if lies, then slanderous but in no way abuse. You would be okay if they were close to her in age

What a mouthful! Seriously.

Meghan is quickly learning who is willing to use her for $$.

Using their connection to her when she was a child to me is abuse. It would be like me going after my nephew for my own gain, I don't care that Meghan is an adult now. These people are abusive to her.

Its not only the British press and to be honest, I think perhaps out of all of them, the British publications are the ones that are most likely to draw the line when it comes to diabolical reporting.

Ruining this relationship between Harry and Meghan isn't their objectives either. The prime directive of all of this is to make money and greedily hook more and more people into coming back for more.

This kind of stuff will come and go. Meghan's whole world will come to the surface now that she's dating Prince Harry.

The same happened to Catherine during her courtship years. The Middleton family released some photos after the engagement announcement, but some photos were already made public during the courtship. Family stories were told way before anything was official.

Now, it's Meghan's turn. It's going to be an very unfair and crazy ride before anything becomes official for this new couple.

If that nephew does not shut up,UGH! This is making Americans look bad and as for the topless photo I'm now realizing that's not Meghan's nose...I like her and all but her nose is very distinguishable(European) and it doesn't look like hers...

This is why Harry is lucky if he finds a woman he adores and loves, who is kind and loves and likes him back, AND still will stick with him even through all this horrible media **** storm. It's so horrifying, for Meghan, not knowing what new stuff is popping up when her publicist calls her. No doubt Harry has her back, that statement makes a lot of sense now.
I'm thinking none of this is a surprise to Harry, I bet they have discussed what might pop up from her past, just to be aware.

Isn't it something. The half siblings half sibling. It would be funny if it wasn't so ridiculous.

I had to fill out the paperwork for an RCMP security clearance a few years ago, in which you have to list your immediate family and their contact information. It specifies that half siblings and step siblings count as immediate family.

So, from that regards, Meghan's half siblings likely are immediate family. Whether or not she considers them such is a different case - the age difference and the fact that it's been said she's not close to her father's side of the family suggests not.

That said... at least some of these people are closely related blood relatives. I would kind of be surprised if her half siblings weren't included in the invite list for any hypothetical wedding. Maybe they wouldn't be seated beside the Queen, but looking at how distantly related some of the guests at William and Catherine's wedding were - not to mention that both Uncle Garry and Charles Spencer were invited... I'd bet on Meghan's half siblings getting an invite.

That's a... horrible analogy. Meghan is not a child being abused. What some members of her family are doing is disgusting and opportunistic. It is an abuse of their relationship with Meghan. It is certainly not child abuse, and to call it such is... I honestly can't find the words for it. But what child abuse entails is far worse than someone selling stories to the press, especially if the person the stories are about is an adult.

I think the Queen has very deep in her the tradition and the old fashion way of Royalty and eventhough Harry is not the next King, still I think it can be an issue.

When Harry was dating Cressida I actually did a kinship chart to sort out all of her half and step siblings - so far Meghan's parents have collected fewer marriages & thus she has fewer half/step siblings than the Bonas/Anstruther/Gough etc. crowd.

When is this badly written and terribly acted soap opera going to end?

Running away from the flying daggers now.
