Yep.

I’m sitting here thinking that Meghan is starting to make Wallis look pretty good.

They cut his finances. And? You are not working Royals.

I've changed my mind - this is such a lie of lies and half truths the Palace shouldn't comment. It stands for itself as appearing untrue so leave it be and move on. The media will soon pick up the lie about why Archie doesn't have a title.

Well, I've said all along that Meghan is the smarter of the pair, and it sounds like Oprah agrees...

To be completely honest, if one looks on Twitter or Tumblr, there is a huge wave of support for them. The British side of things is... calmer.

Something must have happened with Charles. He said he will try to heal that relationship.

If this British press eats them alive, they earned it IMO.

Americans-at the end of the day- don’t seriously care about either one of them. It will probably play better here though- I agree. And Americans are their intended audience. THIS American sure won’t support any of their endeavors though.

Yeah I think Charles said the comment because it seemed Harry looked pretty sad when he started talking about him.

But it is not the Queen. He seemingly has a great respect for her.

Did Harry say whether he thought the interview would help?

I'm curious which Americans they think this will make them look better to... The vast majority of Americans don't give a rat's behind about royalty, not even the BRF. The ones that do... They're going to be giving this interview all the side-eye it deserves and picking it apart. Do they think this is going to appeal to the woke crowd? Again, most of those people don't care about royalty and this will only matter in a social-justice sort of way and even then... I just can't see this playing well, in the long term, for them, no matter how much $$ Hollywood is throwing at them right now.

Nope but his head went down. It seems like they are not on good terms.

I'm an American and it doesn't make them look any better to me. I'm appalled. I actually think they look like spoiled brats.

So, if Harry is sorry for his father and his brother because they are trapped and can't leave, is he implying that the monarchy should be abolished? So that his family could finally be free? Is this a new version of "Let my People go" ?

Hey, now, that would require our MSM and social media giants to be honest in their fact-checking. Some of the stuff Meghan's lobbed out there isn't going to be fact-checked.

Harry's tone when he talks about the events that have happened, I am excited for those of you who have not yet seen it to experience it.

"They CUT ME OFF financially!"

"Took my security!"

If a flying purple people eater walked onto the set, he could not be more taken aback. This man has never been exposed to the idea that you lose the benefits when you quit the job.

Also, Harry has just been asked about the conversation re: Archie's skin tone and given it a VERY different context. First, it seems it like he was NOT at all on board with it being shared. Second, she framed this as a conversation that took place when she was expecting... as if she was pregnant and her pregnancy triggered a conversation about revoking titles and skin color. He just made it clear that this took place in the early stages of their dating relationship.*

*Not that such a deplorable comment is to be tolerated in any context, but it raises questions why a person would want to frame a conversation a certain way when it... did not happen that way.

The American's will buy it because again their support stems from AA women who love that a "Black woman" married a Prince. Also American's are naïve on the Royal Family.

So what happens when this is over? Will they go into hiding forever?

I feel horrible for his grandparents. Especially since he just used them to generate good press for himself- the story about the zoom calls and the Christmas presents. And then to do this. What a betrayal. I seriously can’t imagine Philip’s response- especially with him being ill.

I can’t bring myself to feel sorry for him. How could he do this? I mean - what is wrong with him?!

Some of my biggest takeaways..

1. Security is costing them an arm and a leg and they’re really bitter that they have to pay for it.

2. It seems ALL the money from the trust Diana left them is gone— it only tied them over until the Netflix and Spotify deals came through...

3. They’re really bitter that The Queen did not make Archie an HRH
