Well he could be both...but barring a horrible tragedy it isn't going to happen anyway.

Any chance that we can possibly import the Australian media to cover the royal stories rather than the tabloid British press? I kind of grew attached to them during Harry and Meghan's tour poʍu nupǝɹ.

Just a reminder, this thread isn’t about the Markles, or the media and their coverage of Meghan.

Can someone explain to me why is that even noteworthy? Of course it's going to be late, KP has publicly said how much mail they've received in that month alone.

I don't think the story of the aide moving on is newsworthy, but thank you letters nearly 6 months on from the wedding is just not on. Sloppy and unbecoming, IMO.

Actually people were receiving other thank you s months after the fact as well, like George and Charlotte’s birthday wishes. It’s not a surprise given the amount of things that happened in a short period of time. They do still have other things to work on in that office. I’m not sure why that’s surprising to people.

I have a question? Can the British Royal family and media forum be opened again since it is closed? There are clearly things people want to talk about, that many find important that are not allowed to be discussed in this forum. The media’s relarionship with the family, especially the Sussex family, is a very hot topic. I feel like it should have some place for discussion. I am new so I really don’t know how to request that so I apologize if this isn’t how to go about doing it.

This is not about Brand Sussex, but just reflects badly on the Royal Household. If they were over worked, more resources from within the Royal Household could have been organised. It does not take very much skill to send these letters out.

Also in terms of the level of activity for KP, there was a wedding in May and a tour in October. Not exactly earth shattering stuff, given the Cambridges have not done a big autumn tour this year because of Louis' age.

I agree, however threads are closed at the discretion of mods for a reason. There is the Royal Library and Electronic media section of TRF available where it's possible to discuss various books and documentaries on the royals, such as the recent Jobson book, etc. As well, there is a British royal family relationships thread that is open.

Under the Electronic media forum, there is a thread about the recent documentary on Prince Charles, where a topic of discussion has been about Prince Charles' close relationship with Duchess Meghan and with his sons.

Seeing some of the latest photos of Meghan today, I think she is changing, which is obviously inevitable as her life has changed so much over the past two years. I miss somewhat who she was before, and that she was able to share much more of her life previously. Now, true sharing is off-limits as a royal.

It strikes me that Meghan plays her role well as the Duchess of Sussex. The royals always display these somber, melancholy expressions at events like today's. I do realize the somber nature of what Remembrance Day stands for, especially for Great Britain, a country that lost so many human lives during both World Wars. However, Meghan is from laid-back California, and although she surely has read up a lot recently on the British monarchy and British history, as a young American in her 30s, she is very far removed from that period in history generally, especially in British history. I suppose she feels deeply connected now through marriage, and as a newly baptized member of the Church of England. Meghan seems entirely up for all these grand, ritual occasions and pomp & circumstance ceremonies. She did study international relations at Northwestern. Plus, her acting career has definitely held her in good stead being in front of cameras at all these events. [...]

[...]Sure, some of this royal lifestyle might seem glamorous and appeaing from the outside. But on the inside, it could begin to get somewhat claustrophobic and overwhelming, particularly always being around RPOs and the same royal family faces and the palace intrigue, unless you do have a happy relationship with your significant other, (get along reasonably well with most of the family) and have purposeful, meaningful work to occupy and motivate your day-to-day existence. Right now, of course, Meghan is likely in full motherhood planning mode, and also still involved in pre-planning for the Royal Foundation projects she will be adding to her future schedule. As well, she may be in her element with the decorating needs of her and Harry's new 20+ room apartment at KP, their rental home on the Great Tew estates, York Cottage at Sandringham, and Adelaide Cottage on the Windsor estate. And surely for down-to-earth sustenance, she remains in contact with her closest and dearest friends, along with having her mother, and the solid support of her besotted husband.

In her former life, Meghan was seemingly very organized and a successful entrepreneur as well as a very busy actor on a popular cable television series. Add to that her humanitarian work and all the traveling she did, and I suppose it's safe to say she's segued nicely into her life as a royal, because of course, she has a staff to whom she can delegate many of the mundane tasks. This outsized, minutely examined life for someone who once spoke of feeling blessed and thankful for having a fruit basket every day in her very own trailer on the set of Suits. She must be living a dream and mostly enjoying the privileges, being up for the challenges, loving her prince of a husband, and simply ignoring and not sweating the less pleasant stuff (such as the recent nonsensical 'tiara drama').

Really? Better her than me! The tiara drama would have me seriously questioning why I gave up my former life! But then again...This is a woman who has lived through a father and haf-siblings denigrating her in public...so the tiara drama may be mild in comparison.

It's not strictly DF that has done speculative coverage re homes for the Sussexes. In any case, I mostly do not click on DF trash. It has been reported by more than one source that H&M are renting a temporary home in the Cotswolds on the Great Tew Estates. I see no reason to doubt that.

I also see no reason to disbelieve reports that H&M will soon be moving into Apt 1 at KP (if the Gloucesters decide to move out). H&M may or may not have been gifted homes on the Windsor and Sandringham estates, but I see no reason to suspect it isn't possible -- this has been discussed in the thread, Future Home for Prince Harry, under British Royal Residences.

Where will the British reporters go? Please don't send them to the US.

I wonder if The Duchess of Sussex will sign a book of Condolences for those who tragically died in the California fires?
