I edited out criminal shortly thereafter, as it was not the right word.

He was supposed to be quite close with Eugenie. Eugenie seems to be VERY family oriented. I can’t see this going down well with her.

Oh golly, does this mean they will name their daughter Ariel?

I should have put The Earl and Countess of Wessex and Princess Anne in my post. Thanks for the reminder

Funny enough, I only just watched a Channel 5 documentary on Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie which was released October 2020 (but only recently published on Youtube). One of the commentators actually did speculate that one day Beatrice and Eugenie could step up to the plate. This was given after Prince Philip retired, Harry & Meghan leaving senior working roles and Andrew's role suspended. Hence four working royals out. Hint: This happens towards the end of the documentary

Guess who guilted their husband into leaving.

Prince Harry brought out how over 70 MPs spoke out in solidarity against the horrific treatment received in the press but no one member of his family did.....Yikes!

Very interesting.

Harry says that the Royal Family is "a very trapping environment that a lot of them are stuck in. They have the mentality of 'this is how it is. We've all been through it. You can't change it.'"

Says what is difference for Meghan was the race element. In other words, the treatment Meghan received was different to the treatment everyone else had endured. Says the family should have showed public support to Meghan. Says Parliament showed support to Meghan but his family did not.

On his family: "That hurts."

Of his family: "How scared they are of the tabloids turning on them."

Says tabloids "control [the family] by fear" and this is the reason the institution survives.

This is really funny, she is now into fairy tales, 'The Little Mermaid" who fell in love with a prince and lost her voice, but it's a happy ending, she gets her voice back at the end.

It would be ironic if this was how Andrew got what he always wanted. Ie a role for his daughters as working royals. But I still think it will mostly be Edward and Sophie that will slot in.

I just think: if Diana were alive, which side would she be in this story? it's interesting, but we'll never know.

I think Meghan should have shut up period. Not discussed it at all. ALL of this garbage was completely unnecessary. I have no respect for Meghan for giving this interview. None.

And I have no idea if what Meghan said was true at all. I’m sure not inclined to take her word for it. She’s not going to give an interview that makes herself look bad. Why should I take Meghan’s word for anything?

Wait, am I dreaming or Harry thinks that his family turned on Meghan, because they thought she was going to be as loved and successful as Diana was?

No side. She would have loved both of her sons.

I wonder if she ever read the real fairy tale because that does NOT have a happy ending. The little mermaid actually doesn't get the prince and turns to seafoam.

So Harry thought the UK government should provide 24/7 security while his family lived permanently in Canada ? Or did he think that the Canadians should do it?

I wonder how the reaction to that statement will be in Canada.


And how exactly is he safer in California where everybody still knows where he lives and he has no government security either?

That particular fairy tale didn't end well, did it?

Diana became an 'outsider' I think she would sympathize with the Sussexes. Diana even contemplated buying a home in California.

Seriously? Meghan does have a flair for the dramatic. I’m just rolling my eyes reading this.

Thanks to people who are watching. I never could have sat through this.

I agree. The palace should totally ignore this. If they give an unprecedented response, that will give Meghan more fuel, which is what she wants. I saw a few comments where it was speculated about this playing on the ignorance of the American people. It does not matter one bit what the American people think (and I am American). It only matters what the people of the UK think about the Royal Family.

Neither Harry nor Meghan seem to think long term before doing anything.

Harry admitting he would NOT step back if not for Meghan.
