If that's true then they're REALLY out. We're unlikely to see them at much of anything after the Queen passes away.

Wait, so they basically wanted to be somehow like Princess Eugenie or Princess Beatrice, keeping their HRH, instead of having normal jobs being celebrities with a podcast, production company and their own foundation AND keep full security for them and their children, in another country.

Yeah, I can see how British people would accept that deal.

On the other hand, as a matter of jurisdiction, given that the interview was given in the US, I don't know if she could be sued in the UK too.

I think there'll be a day that Harry will regret this interview. I can't see those two lasting and I think his relationship with his family is over. This is so sad, especially for his kids.

Charles told his biographer he was unhappy with his upbringing and was not exactly praising of his parents especially his father. HE got criticized by his siblings for this. Apparently all is well now, but Charles is on record doing this.

Can Beatrice or Eugenie occupy that place? or even the Counts of Wessex and Princess Anne ...

Not even after. The damaging comment, the Kate made her cry and I doubt William would ever forgive him.

Quite a whine-fest.

Did anyone else think Meghan's face looked strangely immobile?

I don't care what anyone says: They should act to remove their titles and remove Harry from the line of succession.
Yes. Absolutely. And the things I'm reading are a shame. I Can't believe Harry is doing this to his family.

CBS is really stretching this out, more commercials than the actual interview.

I can't see Harry's relationship with his sibling, cousins and other relatives being what it once was after this interview. They might forgive but they won't forget.

What should they say, though? If they get into a back and forth, he said/she said scenario by refuting the specific claims Meghan made, it will draw things out even more, which Meghan would love. I did not think Meghan and Harry would be willing to degrade themselves to this extent in their pursuit of money and fame. The British Royal Family, both the institution and the individual family members, should say nothing beyond the standard “no comment.” There’s no reason for them to be pulled down into this trash.

You are correct about civil suits but you mentioned criminal defamation, and Meghan is not in danger of criminal prosecution. The royal family could sue, but they couldn't prosecute her.

I think they're all to old to keep working once Charles starts to rule. Anne could carry on. I think we all know Andrew is out so that kind of only leaves Edward and Sophie. Unless they bring in the younger generation but they didn't want to do that. I think it has to be E & S and I think they'll be phased in at the Jubilee.

If what she is saying is in fact true- thank goodness! If she had stayed she would have killed herself

I also think that Harry will regret this interview.
I also don't see Harry and Meghan's wedding going on very long. And the relationship with the family can end, and that is sad.
Harry why did you agree to give this interview?

Meghan comparing herself to The Little Mermaid, who loses her voice because she falls in love with a prince.

I agree. Diana regretted her Panamora interview and Charles regretted his with Jonathan Dimbleby. Too bad Harry didn't think of that when he talks about history repeating itself.

I think Kate should have just issued a statement denying the rumor. Quashed it. Over and done with. I don't understand why this did not happen.

And I don’t even want to think about Philip’s reaction.
So everyone should keep believing that Meghan made Kate cry?
