Cue Sam for crying Sr is not coming to the wedding because the BRF banned him from attending or the wedding is not postponed until Sr is on the mend. I wouldn't be surprised if some advisors stated Sr can't be trusted because he is still tied to Sam.

I'm utterly fed up with these people... At last we can expect them (Meghan, Harry and her mother) to be left alone after the wedding !

Andrew Morton published his book too soon. He should have waited until after the wedding.

It is a shame that some media gave Sam and Thomas jr. a stage for their gossip.

Where did you see the rumor about the nephew, nieces and uncle on the Ragland side being in London? I hadn't come across that yet.

What happened to never complain, never explain?

The relationship between BRF and press is cathastrophic and has been for a very long time. A recipy for desaster if you mix it with a bride who - partly due to her profession - has always courted and used the press for her own purposes.

I guess it has dawned on Meghan now what price she will have to pay for the wedding with Harry.

Lets face it. Its been entertaining. Its been keeping us on the edges of our seats wondering what's coming next with these people. Its the stuff that script writers for soap operas wish they had the talent for.

What basically set the stage for all of this is the amount of "under the radar" intrigue that surrounded Harry and Meghan throughout their budding relationship. The rabid, drooling press couldn't sink their fangs into anything concrete because Harry and Meghan were that good at what they do. Even after the engagement announcement, everything was structured with a definitive red line in the sand between public and private. The yellow press got desperate and needed to fill space for click bait and cash in the pocket to head to the bank with.

Enter the Markle siblings and it was like dangling sweet carrots before the horse and the race was on. The tabloids had their black sheeple to create sordid stories and the black sheeple, themselves, were bleating and bleating more and more as their rise to "fame" and "importance" fed their egos. It worked both ways for the press and the black sheeple and we, here, find it a distraction from not too much really important news of the wedding forthcoming to yammer about.

The wedding is going on as planned and we're getting more realistic information about the big day about to happen. We're also seeing the black sheeple market furiously trying to up their game against this wedding but what is so amusing about it is that we see it for the pathetic attempt it really is.

In the end, the wedding will triumph anything else that could be said or done against it. Tabloids will have made a fortune because of it and the bit players dressed in black sheeple clothing will fade into obscurity and still attempt to bleat and bleat and bleat in the hopes someone will listen.

Am I reading this right....how has Meghan used the media for her own purposes in all this? She has been a model of dignity here, has not commented on either Sam or Jr during this entire situation. She has kept her mouth tightly shut and any use of the press *before* Harry has been to help those in need in her charity work which getting the news out about it helps the charity as we all know here........should there be a war of words here on the negative vile comments about Meghan again. Nobody has to like or love Meghan, that is a personal choice yet some form of decency to a person we do not know on a personal level should be the norm in life...JMHO

I am referring to Meghan's life before Harry, not since she joined the family on engagement day. She has always been a very public and press inviting person with everything that goes with a job as actress where you need the press to stay in the game. Now she is marrying into a toxic press relationship what has irreparable consequences for herself and her family.

Amazing how this wedding is turning into a real life drama Lifetime movie style : reality is surpassing fiction !
So much for the "royal mystic" after that ...

Her "family" that she is close to are all excitedly preparing for Saturday with her. The estranged (with the emphasis once again on strange) family have no one to blame for their actions besides themselves. Meghan played no part in any consequences they will endure or suffer.

I completely agree Osipi! Those people are not her family. Her REAL family are by her side and shutting the hell up. They are her support systems. And after this weekend the media will start to move on from the messy Markles and frankly I am already over their pathetic, desperate antics anyways. Focus on who actually matters.

They gave them not only a stage but also paid them for their lies and half truths.

In this time of me too and times up they knowingly support a man who is a domestic abuser just so he can further embarrass Meghan.

Not even bothering to read it because in the span of two days he has flip flopped his opinion. I laughed at Dickie calling him out on twitter. His show and former paper is the cause for A LOT of the coverage. The Samantha and the Dooley's were on his show how many time? Piers can hush.

Anyways... Charles and Camila were spotted arriving and leaving KP with flowers. They were obviously going to meet Doria. Seems she likely also met with the Cambridges as well.

^ You are of course, as Morgan is to your [...] opinion..

The reality is 'the Palace' are 'damned if they do AND damned if they don't' -Try to shepherd the ghastly Markles into better behaviour towards their OWN relative, and certainly be accused of all manner of unwarranted interference and control-freakery [by the Press, and errant Markles themselves]. They would be hammering at the doors of ANY media outlet [that would pay them], bleating of how the BRF had sought to muzzle them..
OR -
leave them to their own 'devices', and [as they are being] be accused of neglect, of snobbery, of not 'caring' for Ms Markle and her family..

The Markles [en masse] were advised of the best course of action, [by 'the Palace'] in 2016.. the better half of them chose to heed it, and the bad side did NOT...

*End of*

I read it, and had a good laugh.

On the one hand, he's scathing about the behavior of the Markles, but he somehow concludes that it was all KP's fault for not doing more for them, including inviting them to the wedding.

The mental gymnastics to arrive there are mind-boggling, but if you keep in mind the DM's standard operating procedure is to make everyone look as bad as possible, Piers convoluted illogic makes a lot more sense.

Ridiculous article.

Someone should remind Piers Morgan that one can lead sheeple to the feedbag but they cannot make them partake of the slop.

KP did what they could at the time and it went unheeded.
