"As For Meg/them wanting more freedom. I never really understood that. She was an actress she was told how speak and act as a character and how to present herself outside her role and even what to wear. Heck , knowing that lifestyle the studios/modeling gigs probably has stepulations in her contract on how much weight she can gain, etc. Yet all the sudden when it comes to the BRF she feels backed up a gainst a wall and doesnt alledgedly want to follow dress code? It's only the BRF that has demanded so much of her. If any of that is true, don't make sense to me. Thats whining to your boss that I dont want to follow your rules, etc."





^^^a very salient point, Duchesschicana

What Royal dress code? 99% of what was suggested as Meghan breaking dress codes were in articles on online tabloid media sites pointing the finger about one shouldered dresses, no tights, no pants while on Royal engagements, coloured nail varnish etc, that other royals had been seen wearing before, during and after Meghan came into the Royal Family.

Those articles alleging breaches of a non existent 'code' were absolute rubbish. Meghan was even blasted by these self-proclaimed 'experts' at one stage for exposing her toes in sandals in spite of Kate having worn espadrilles and the Queen and Princess Margaret being seen in open toed shoes as early as the 1950s.

I agree, and I think its absolutely ludicrous. Not only is a lawsuit NOT the place to hash out grievances, I believe shes delusional if she thinks this martyr syndrome is going to get her anywhere. Shes playing the Im a commoner victim of the big, bad, BRF, expecting the public to support her because of their often mixed feelings towards them. Well, theyre not. Frankly, shes exhausting to read about; I can only imagine how she is to deal with

Hey it worked 100% for Diana - so they are just taking a leaf out of that book. I have been told the royals that we named were strategically done - she could easily have named the previous roles of the Wessex's and the Phillips's.

Meghan and Harry have a game plan - it is quiet easy to work out.

How do you see the story develop?

Why drag the names of non-Firm-working royals into this when their's is a totally different situation *and* they have nothing to do with the legal matter at hand...
Because I believe the DM asserted in their legal papers "Royals don't work". So Meghan replied with examples of royals who do work. The DM made no distinction between working royals and non-working royals.

Surely Meghan might be able to make the distinction between the royals that represent the Crown and those that do not.

If she's genuinely upset about that sort of thing, she needs to get a thicker skin. I get very upset if people have a go at me, and I'm sure it must be horrible having all this stuff written about you, but, if someone's got nothing better to do than moan about your shoes or your nail varnish, are they really worth worrying about?

Meghan can, but apparently the DM can't. It seems they asked a lot of questions to gain more information and this was one of them. Omid Scobie discussed it on Twitter.

Interesting that Omid is now being used to provide clarifications and justifications on the litigation as well.

Can I enquire as to who has told you the names were strategic? And do enlighten us as to the game plan youve quite easily worked out?

He's a reporter, he reports about royals, that's his job. Just like he reports on William and Catherine and Charles and Camilla and the Queen. Unless you want to claim he's on Harry and Meghan's payroll.

As distinct from the myriad journalists employed by the newspaper group the Sussexes are suing who pour scorn on all attempts by Meghan's lawyers to clarify her situation.

I am not suggesting he is on H&M's payroll, but he is certainly their chosen mouthpiece, perhaps like Richard Kay was for Diana.

Or he is simply reporting on what he sees and refuses to go along with the "Meghan-is-a-witch" thing so many have going on. And of course he has a book to sell. Perhaps he feels it's a lot smarter to stay on their good side, especially since Harry and Meghan have cut off most of the gossip press in the UK. In the long run it would pay off not to participate in the bashing. Doesn't however mean he's their mouthpiece. He could very well be acting on his own. Reporters tend to do that sometimes.

It only sort of worked for Diana because she had the forture to die before she could overegg the public sympathy pudding but had she lived I doubt she would have the same St Diana aura around her that she has now . It had already started with critical Dodi coverage .


I assume she named Beatrice and Eugenie because she can chain them to Andrew and Michael of Kent because of his brooch wearing wife .

I'm taking this with enough salt to turn a freshwater lake into a briny pond but from a quick research, it seems Cosmopolitan is usually reliable with reliable sources but don't quote me on that because I've never actually read the magazine.

Anyways... according to this article, Thomas Markle will be testifying in the court case. On the side of the defendant against his own daughter.

Well I'm sure that will do wonders for the relationship with his daughter en her family. If there was any hope of reconciliation he can kiss that goodbye.
