Yes, I understand, but my point was that speed is relative, especially when you are talking about someone from such a different background taking on all the nonsense that goes with royal life. From...

Do you know what she meant exactly by "careful"? Careful not to out your sources, or something else?

In a normal relationship, no, probably not. In a high profile, royal relationship? Possibly, and if the conversation between William and Harry happened at all I can see a) why William might have...

I think "inconceivable" would fit this particular story fairly well, since it doesn't make anyone involved look good, especially Harry and William. A maid with her ear pressed to the door? That I...

Most of that is not evidence at all, it's simply rehashing gossip, rumors and innuendo. None of it is coming from within the family. Gossip is absolutely not credible evidence.

What are you basing this statement on? I've see no evidence that Meghan has not been welcomed by William, Kate, and the rest of the royal family, so I'm curious what evidence there is that she...

Thanks for posting that.

Now I've seen it, if that is the whole interaction, I can't say that I think it seems very significant. I understand what Marg is saying, but I didn't think William...

And keeping their heads down and going about their business is certainly a legitimate way to handle it; whether it's the most effective way remains to be seen--and we may not know that for years.

The relationships are different, perhaps, but the larger point remains: for outside observers, what is going on between members of the royal family--any royal family--is hard to discern, and overall...

I agree with this. When royal watching it can be hard to parse out what is really going on behind the scenes, so one of the most useful things is to look at patterns. Patterns in behavior, patterns...

Harry certainly seems like a happy man since his marriage, but I'm not sure we have any evidence that he is healthier, smokes and drinks less, or is any more dedicated to his chosen causes than he...

The bolded above is the essence of it. What we see in the press, even if it's accurate (that's a big "if") is the tip of the iceberg. The royal family, all royal families, are not performing...
