I had seen that too, but it looked to me as though the photograph had simply been moved to the other side of the table. Is that correct? Either way, I'm not sure there's much significance. ...

These are very good points, and I wouldn't be surprised if this is exactly what is happening. I'd even go further, and say that it might not be a bad idea for the Sussexes to take longer than six...

I agree with almost all of this.

In my mind "The Fab Four" is a fantasy, and always was, and doesn't acknowledge that these are adults we are talking about, not still "Diana's boys." They are...

This is really not good. The statements in themselves are outrageous and damaging to the monarchy, and the fact that Sara Latham did not immediately and energetically deny that she was the source...

If the quotes from Sussex "allies"---and if that choice of words isn't revealing--are accurate, it is really, really not good. Actually, even if one or two of the quotes are accurate, it's not good,...

I agree with most of this. If the bit about "single-handedly modernizing the monarchy" is reflective of the general attitude within the camp, and even worse, the attitude of Harry and Meghan, then...

I have always felt that that has a lot to do with the fantasy aspects that some people lay on Harry and William. It ties in to what Osipi was saying about the handsome, popular prince who is the...

I've also noticed this. It's a relatively small subset of people, but it exists, so Iluvbertie's comments made sense to me. I don't really think that the vast majority of the people who make those...

I think this is very true. Many times here and on other forums I've seen people make some kind of statement about the Queen for which there is, objectively, absolutely no evidence, but the statement...

I found that interesting as well, and it makes me suspect that in this current climate, all the royals are going to be having their finances and contacts under the microscope for a while. This could...

This is such a good point. I also anticipate major changes in the way the BRF is talked about, covered, and accepted when the Queen dies, and at this point, it's impossible to predict how it will...

To maintain the current level of representation? No, there won't. There will be a lot fewer appearances to open flower shows and schools, and probably fewer formal patronages. How that will affect...
