It’s perfectly within the rules to post his utterances here and give comment on them.
Of course... but is he wrong? We are the awful to his planet and everything on it. I don't see how anyone can really deny it. That said we also have the power to turn it around and I hope we do.

According to the Chris Ship twitter that you quoted (#271), "awful" is not a word he used in his twitter. It is you who said it, not him.

People have heavily criticised Charles in the past for being too political in regards to environmental issues, since traditionally, as is widely known, royals and politics aren't meant to mix. However, the Sussexes seem to be trying to change things as they rightly seem to be more concerned about the public and how these issues will affect them rather than what they should or shouldn't say. Harry and Meghan in particular are so influential; and people are more likely to listen to figures like them or Greta Thurnberg rather than politicians on issues such as climate change.

Prince Harry is a very wise man. Good for him.

with respect to archie, finally they are getting him out and about! after restrictions on the birth being private, on his hermetic introduction in windsor (kate presented her 3 kids surrounded by whoever wanted to come to be part of the ocassion) and his parents insisting on a private christening, it was about time. he looks like a good mix of both harry and meghan.

it bugs me that meghan always greets people before harry - did they not teach her about protocol and precedence? it is almost as if harry married her because he wants less attention on him, as she is happy to take the spotlight. i also agree that i don't share their love for hugging and kissing everyone - they are royals, not celebrities.

.
In regards to Archie, it is up to his parents when & who he is introduced to the public, Royal or not. Of course we fans would love to see more or him, but they know what is best for him and their family.

As for Meghan or harry greeting people 1st, Whatevesssssssss. Like it was mentioned in other post. Other Male royals I have seen over the years introduced their wives before themselves. Outside of certain countries where the men are front & center. It is not a Massive Deal, or course it is Meghan so, I guess it is a big deal.

However, love what she is doing. Magazine selling out within 2 weeks, Clothing collections raising tons of money & also selling out like crazy. The Sussex's charities are doing amazingly well for THE FIRM. That is what is important.

I agree, not over the top, but REAL. I loved they said for everyone to just call them Harry & Meghan.

I'm not sure what is meant by "old school" but it's an extremely common nickname for little boys in large parts of the US--it's even kind of generic, where an unfamiliar young child might be called or addressed that way: "Hey, bubba, need some help?" or similar. And it's never gone out of style, so Meghan using it for her own munchkin is a nice tieback to her roots.

I had no clue about 'Bubba' being a common nickname (while I lived in the States but apparently is more common in the South), so learned something new today.

For other that similarly had no clue: it even has it's own Wikipedia-page.

I wouldn't say exclusively American; I know a lot of parents here in London who call their children (boys and girls) "bubba" or "bubs". It's my cat's nickname too

Really? I lived in England for almost 20 years and both my boys were born there and I’ve never in my life come across a ‘bubba’.

Is there some other cultural connotation that I’m not familiar with with?

I've lived all over the US, and I'd say it's most common in the South and the West, including the Southwest. "Bud" or "Buddy" is another variation, and pretty common everywhere.

I also lived in the UK and spend a good portion of my year there and at least 3 of my british friends call their baby sons bubba as a term of endearment or used when they were smaller. It is not uncommon in the UK---just as I said.

Its a cute/silly term of endearment used for boy babies. Its sometimes used as a name for a brother. Sometimes used in the pejorative, in the US. It just depends on the context/region.

Now afaik, its very much a term only for babies in the UK [i've never met an adult bubba in the UK, but i am sure they exist], versus in the US adults are sometimes called bubba as well as a nickname in parts.

Not sure why a simple cute baby name is causing so much conversation lol.

She says it like “boo-bah” but she called him that twice. Once outside as they were walking down the corridor and again inside on the couch.
