That's a gorgeous photo (by Harry? That would be even sweeter) and it was very sweet of the Sussexes to share it, Mother's Day or not.

If any royal was tagging a fashion designer who was a personal friend in their Instagram I'd say exactly the same thing. It crosses a line, and it's a line that is there for a reason. There's a...

Is the owner of Anxiety UK a personal friend of one of the Sussexes? I think that's the issue, and that goes for any of the royals. They cannot be perceived to be shilling for a personal friend. ...

Hmmm indeed. If that is true, then it was a definite misstep, and hopefully one that won't be repeated.

When those photos were published I thought it was a dangerous and outrageous invasion of privacy, and I'm glad the court is seeing it the same way. I was shocked that the photos were published at...

Why would there be outrage? Celebrities are very useful in drawing support for pet causes. You're conflating two different issues: celebrities as close (and very outspoken) personal friends--baby...

It would be a neat trick for Robin Williams to have been at Eugenie's wedding, but I take your point.

There's always been commentary about celebrity friendships with the royals, it's not unique to...

There is a lot of negativity associated with the acquisition of some of the gemstones in some of the Crown Jewels, and the imperialism implied with it, so I don't think it's a good idea to apply that...

There certainly is an ugly undercurrent of racism in some of the coverage of Meghan, although I have observed that the largest amount of it comes from social media platforms; if you don't follow...

:previous: So true and very funny! (The dog comment..)

I think the important thing to remember is that what we actually know is not "everything there is to know," but a carefully curated image. ...

We'll just have to agree to disagree then. I'm not claiming that the British press is neutral, or that articles aren't written with a certain amount of veiled innuendo, but it's very much what they...

I just read this and agree that it seems a fairly balanced account overall. One of the points made in the article that struck me was something I've been noticing, too: a large proportion, if not a...

:previous: Agreed. And I'll add that we don't need to know, which is one of the problems when a royal accumulates a dedicated fandom. The lines become very blurred on what is and is not private.

I can't imagine why this is a story. Whether Harry and Meghan did or did not go on a very very expensive vacation before the birth of their baby, it is absolutely no one's business but their own. ...

My observation over the years is that it is usually not so much the new wife "pruning" in a deliberate way, but that some bachelor friendships just fall by the wayside because the new husband's...

I've seen no evidence that Meghan has an attitude or is difficult, but I do think it is entirely possible that her working style may have ruffled some feathers if it was different than what staff was...

I think she's mostly doing fine, too. However, the truth is that we have absolutely zero idea if "the Firm" is complaining, or is 100% happy with how things are going. Whatever feedback Meghan is...

I think the major advantage in terms of friends that Kate and Camilla had that Meghan did not is that they both had years to weed out the indiscreet, the disloyal and the people who were just looking...
