I am thrilled to see they are supporting pride month as their June cause. It is so important that people in places of influence show their support.

Love is love.

Posts discussing Trump's comment about the Duchess of Sussex, have been moved to the State Visit thread. That thread is currently closed, but will be opening shortly.

Also, let's keep this thread focused on Harry and Meghan and not on the Cambridges, or other royal families.

That is a sweet compilation video.

I love how the Sussexes are using their Instagram account. It and the official Royal Family website are my favourite places to get information about the Sussexes and the causes they support.

It's wonderful to see the Sussexes openly supporting Pride!

Their support, if of course, great and I am starting to like this monthly focus they do (shame last months was marred by their support of a friends business)

However i don't understand how other RFs are lacking in support, off the top of my head I can think of:

Queen Maxima of the Netherland's strong support for the LGBT community for many years
Crown Princess Victoria's support likewise, she appeared at some LGBT awards in Sweden and was warmly received
King Harald of Norway made that remarkable speech where he said Norway was "a land of boys who love girls, boys who love boys and girls who love girls" (I am paraphrasing from memory).

Of course the Sussex's support adds to all the good works already done.

I had meant to say the BRF rather than other RFs, so I’ll change the post now..

If I'm not mistaken, prince William featured on the cover of a gay-magazine just last year.

It was actually in 2016.

In 2017, the Queen specifically mentioned sexual orientation discrimination as an issue in her speech for the opening of Parliament.

William has also specifically addressed LGBTQ bullying a number of times in engagements about bullying.

Harry and Meghan spoke to the LGBT community during CHOGM week in April last year.

https://www.independent.co.uk/news/u...-a8323486.html

Harry was a known gay icon when he was single and younger. I remember quite a few articles about it. Also he stuck up for a gay soldier who was being bullied when in the Army and this man later wrote about it in a book.

Thank you all - it seems I missed those occasions, though I do remember Harry being a known gay icon a few years back (as was Felipe of Spain IIRC). It's relieving to hear there's a lot more support than I thought from the royals!

That princes like Harry, Carl Philip and Felipe were hot and popular among gay men doesn't make them icons. There's a difference between being a gay icon and popular within the LGBTQIA community or an ally thereof. People like Lady Gaga, Madonna, Dalida, Princess Diana are/were icons and allies to the community while Harry, who together with his wife and brother has shown himself very sympathetic with said community, could be seen as an ally.
If you wonder why I needed to clarify this it's because we gays take our icons very seriously

Meghan is set to do a photoshoot and an piece for British Vogue.

https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.the...-magazine/amp/

She won't be on the cover but this will get buzz.

Has this been confirmed by anyone else besides The Sun? My antennas always go up unless it's from a trusted source, The Sun to me is not a trusted source. I'm also not saying that the scoop isn't true, but I would like to hear if from a more reliable source.

Its feasible that Meghan will do a photo shoot for British Vogue. She won't be the first to do one. IIRC, Kate did hers back in 2016.

Still, I take anything from a tabloid with a huge block of salt.

Precisely. It would be nice if true, but I need a more reliable source before I believe it.

British Vogue hasn't been the same since Alexandra Shulman left as editor. She was at the helm for 25 years.

When Edward Enninful took over he promised to get rid of the 'posh girls' and promote 'diversity'.

The magazine has lost a lot of its core readership.
