Yeah, right. So presumably it would have been OK to discuss Brexit or even the Prince Andrew/Epstein scandal with HMQ?

A quick look at his Wikipedia entry reveals that not everyone regards Quentin Letts as "respected."

Besides, if her HM were unhappy with the Sussexes wouldn't she let them know?

Smells like fake news to me.

Prince Harry is extremely close to his grandmother and if she felt he needed some advice from her or her senior advisors, she would personally give him the advice or he would follow the advice from her most senior advisors. He has never disrespected his grandmother. The Queen is “The Boss.”

"Respected" by whom exactly?
"Friend of an acquaintance" does this friend of a friend of a friend have a name? Does he/she exists?

That is a good one. But I suspect the succinct answer is, his readers.

I do not think he has a shortage of where he could get good advice. In addition to HM, Harry is also close to his father and his brother. He could seek their advice if he so wanted. But IMO, seeking, accepting and acting on good advice takes maturity and humility, not always around in abundance.

The discussion about the Sussexes and their relationship with the media has been deleted. Posts discussing Meghan and Harry installing an outdoor kitchen, has been moved to the 'Sussex Residence' thread.

There's not much sweeter than the peach fuzz on a baby's head, and Archie looks like a real cutie.

The 'new photo' is over 2 months old. He may have a bit more then peach fuzz now

The Windsor male hair genes are certainly not in his favor But they usually have two decades or so of good hair before it sets in

But is a great photo. I love the black and white shots.

That's very sweet! I bet Doria's having a bit of a chuckle to herself about it though.

Good for them for the Sussexes for confronting the situation. I’m glad BBC apologized. That whole ordeal had to be very upsetting. Glad they were arrested.

These as some of the things that Harry and Meghan have to consider when making decisions for their family. We may not understand all the actions but there are usually good reasons behind them.

I wonder why the BBC is apologizing now. Did the station's lawyers told them they have legal exposure?

That’s very true. None of us fully understand all the reasons behind their decisions, but we have to trust the moves they make are best for their family.

...

I do like how Harry handled it all with the BBC. He went through the proper channels to voice his dismay over that presentation. No one was the wiser and to be honest, this is the first I've heard about it (I only get BBCAmerica). What I liked even more is that Harry was listened to and apologized to that he wasn't informed of all this before it was broadcast but the BBC still maintained its integrity of journalism and reporting on what is actually going on in this type of an organization is what they do. The public does need to be aware and informed of their world around them. The good, the bad and the ugly.
