This is very interesting news, ACO, and I agree that Catherine would have been and will continue to be an excellent source of advice. I’m certainly waiting to hear much more from Archewell as well.

The Duchy of Cornwall charter is free to read on the website on which the UK Government publishes its legislation. Any changes made to the charter would be recorded on the website.

I have never seen a reference to the title, year, or any other information regarding this alleged law, nor have I ever seen it mentioned by a reputable scholar.

There is a court ruling from 1717 which has been misinterpreted in that fashion by royal watchers, but in reality it does not have that effect.

Yes I remember the Queen having possible custody of William and Harry being mentioned in the media during the Charles/Diana divorce negotiations, and it was dismissed then.

When their parents divorced. Or mother died. John Major the then Prime Minister was appointed Special Guardian to the boys.

I know through the years he has been particularly close to William and I believe even went, as the only politician, to Harry's wedding.

While H&M (and their kids) will have trusts they will never get what Charles gets from TQ and in turn William gets from Charles. This is because there are no estate taxes/death duties levied on sovereign to sovereign inheritance. Anything they leave anyone else is subject to normal tax situations.

Also, as mentioned by others the Duchy of Lancaster and the Duchy of Cornwall is intended to provide a private purse for the monarch and heir...no one else has any legal rights to those.

I wonder if the talks were "unproductive", because they want their HRHs back and the Bank of Charles to open for them again and they were told that's not going to happen. Though it is quite funny that Meghan is using her own dad's tacticts

Harry and Meghan haven’t lost their HRHs so there’s nothing to ‘get back’. The stylings are not to be used for commercial purposes, that’s all.

A number of posts have been moved to the Legal Actions thread. Rumors about the Sussexes and the Queen’s will, have been deleted.

They can’t use them in the states so they useless anyway Unless They want to keep them just to give themselves that edge. A fancy meaningless titled in front of your name can impress a lot of hangers on, influencers and vapid socialites

"The Voluntary Expats Formerly Known As TRH The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, Who No Longer Work There Anymore".

The longer form isn't quite so glittery.

And on another tangent, where is the proof that Meghan is regretting her marriage or that a divorce is looming? No proof has ever existed away from Tumblr, SM gossip that the couple are unhappy in any way since they first met.

Talking about forthcoming divorce and whether Meghan would have liked another husband is surely just a teeny bit off in a couple who are expecting their second child in just over three years of marriage.

Women who are miserable in their relationship don’t decide to have a baby in the first year of their marriage. Nor do they go through the pain and heartbreak of miscarriage to try again shortly afterwards.

If there had been the tiniest hint of any discord in the Sussex marriage then the tabloids would have been onto it in a flick of an eye. There never has been anything of that nature at all, and in fact both Harry and Meghan have never shown anything but love, devotion and the utmost loyalty to each other.
I read somewhere that the general public didn't know that Charles and Diana have a troubled marriage, while the press already knew it for years, and PDA can easily be faked, especially when one half of the couple was an actress.

As much as I think the interview was a very grand mistake and did the couple more harm than good, I don't see it as being reflective on their relationship or their intentions going into the future. No one can really sit back and speculate on the state of a marriage that is solely between two people and no one else. Same thing with their bank accounts.

Perhaps its time to leave the interview behind as we've pretty much exhausted everything there is to say about that and no real new news has surfaced about it or its repercussions.

There does seem to be a lot of activity in getting Archewell off the ground and up and running and as the restrictions from the pandemic ease, I think we'll be hearing more and more of what is in store as Archewell gets into the full swing of things.

Not in Hollywood, literally, nobody cares if they have titles or HRH, it's what the Sussexes can bring to the table. I guess, everyone assumed it was their royal connections, but H&M blew that with that stupid interview. It was really short-sighted of Harry to declare that Charles will not take his calls and that he has been cut off financially. Furthermore, his relationship with William, the future King is on very shaky ground. not to mention the resignation of their chief of staff today, who by the way used to work for Bill Gates and left that position to come on board the Archweel. They will have a hard time attracting serious players.

One thing to keep in mind, neither Meghan not Harry have ever been employers on the scale that they are now. I know that they have been in positions where they had people working for them, Meghan has had publicists and probably an assistant, and Harry had staff that were hired to work in various capacities for him. But I'm not sure either of them have ever run what is essentially a globally recognized business, with all that entails. In Harry's case especially, it wouldn't surprise me if his idea of an employee is basically someone who has a job description but is also expected to do pretty much anything that comes up. Royal staff I think are probably happy to go above and beyond for the Royal Family, and Harry may think that anyone in his employ would be the same. In Meghan's case, an assistant to an actor or celebrity *does* kind of do whatever comes up, at any time. It's notoriously a thankless job.

All this to say that their life experiences up to this point may not have prepared them for this particular responsibility. It's not a dig at Meghan, she can be all that she is - educated, intelligent, driven to succeed- and still not be a great employer. Same for Harry.

An interesting thoughtful post there SadieKelly. I agree with you. I know if I was trying to get a growing business off the ground and suddenly had a large staff to deal with I would probably make mistakes especially in this woke world. Life ! it is all a great big learning experience. I wish them well in their endeavours.

What stories do you have from any credible news sources that Harry and Meghan aren’t happy together? Nothing that I’ve read has said so and I read a great deal about the couple.

I remember the Diana years well. Tina Brown and others did write articles quite early in the marriage that things weren’t going well between Diana and Charles, certainly earlier into the relationship than Harry and Meghan’s nearly three year union and two years of dating/engagement before that. They’ve been together five years altogether this coming May/June.

And with the amount of critical attention on them every day from the media and the leaks from KP and their staff, if there was any discord it would have come out by now, plastered all over the tabloids and magazines.

I just wrote a post about that issue. It seems that they can't keep staff.Catherine St-Laurent, who resigned her position at Melinda Gates' women and families foundation - and held a top communications role at the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation in order to work for H&M production company. I am sure she will not comment publicly, which is pretty much the business etiquette, but in private she might t caution a professional of her caliber to be careful with the Succexxes.

I'm not saying that Harry and Meghan's marriage is on the rocks, but people back then also thought that Charles and Diana have no problems whatsoever in their marriage, and don't forget that Peter and Autumn's separation came as a shock a couple of years ago. What I'm trying to say is people can put up a front and PDA can be deceiving.

Now, we can close this secret wedding debacle.

Harry and Meghan Finally Admit They Didn’t Have Secret Backyard Wedding

Quote:
(...)

A spokesperson for the couple conceded Monday that “the couple exchanged personal vows a few days before their official/legal wedding on May 19.”

That backyard exchange of personal vows does not constitute marriage.

The belated admission on the record, which follows several anonymous briefings to journalists, marks the end of a tortuous saga that began when Meghan told Oprah she and Harry tied the knot “in our backyard” three days before the $50 million public wedding on May 19, 2018.

(...)

At present, they are leading a very isolated life, as we all are, to an extent. They are n ot seen at public appearances, where rumours might start to fly about tensions.... and they don't seem to have a lot of staff such as Charles and Di had, who might gossip about their life in private...
At present, it is a love match and they are probably still "clinging to each other" because they ARE in a very isolated position, having moved away from all their normal family/work/support.. but it may happen that in time as life normalizes that both of them will miss the things they've left behind...
There were rumours flying round from early on about tension in Charles and Di's marriage but for other royal couples like the Snowdons or Phillipses, they lead quieter lives and their personal problems didnt get into the press and it came as a surprise when it came out that they were getting divorced.
