It goes with the territory. I know we like to think this is a huge media problem, but it really isn’t. It all goes away after a while.
Yeah definitely disagree. If you really cared and respected them you would never exploit them. These situations shows people's character plenty.

True. The family shouldn’t exploit Meghan. I’m just saying that we’re going to get some childhood footage of Meghan. Some friends will talk and put out photos. The royals and Palace officials know this.

None of us royal watchers particularly like this, but this comes with the territory of marrying someone like Harry. This is what Catherine had to put up with for nearly a decade.

Meghan's siblings are causing problems and attention with the press that hopefully stops soon. Can it get any worse?
These canaries are going to chirp either way. Why should/would Meghan contribute to that possibility?

We’re going to get some details about the wedding reception\party. The media will be nagging and somebody will give in. That’s how the cookie crumbles.

Of course information will be leaked about the reception like William and Kate's. And like theirs, it will be blamed on guests likely. We have no idea. Honestly it could be anyone from either side, well not the royal family, who would feed the information to the press. If promised anonymity as a 'inside source'.

I think we are all aware the palace knows this. They know everything about Meghan. None of this is a surprise or will change anything. Not really the point. Meghan, like Catherine, will always have to deal with this crap. And it is also rich to hear them whine about the media when they are willingly volunteering their personal information.

Totally agree! And I also agree Dman that snippets about the reception will come out. King of the Jungle, I wouldn’t invite backstabbers and give them that opportunity.

That’s just it...you really can’t weed everybody out. You can not invite folks who you know can’t be trusted and who annoy you anyway, but there will be some folks who are invited, who will give out a few snippets here and there. It’s not right, but it’s going to happen. The media will make up some stuff and there will be some factual information from some folks who were there.

The part I don’t like is the private family and friends extremely personal drama being put out in the media. It’s normal personal issues, but it’s none of our business. Meghan half sister tweeting stuff irked me. Now she’s singing a different tune. It’s just stuff we didn’t need to know about. It was about book sales to her, IMO.

I have faith Meghan will have the decorum not to expose the British Royal Family to potential exploitation and ridicule by inviting the estranged distant relatives to her wedding.

Why on earth should Meghan invite these people who not that long ago had been ncredibly nasty about her and have so far shown a distinct lack of discretion, selling her out for cash and attention at every turn? They can’t seem to shut up about her to the press/media or on social media. The father’s other children, the half-brother’s son, they are all cashing in on Meghan with no regard for her feelings.

I feel it’d be a grave error of judgement inviting that lot into her family life so it’s best Meghan maintains her distance imo. She’s an only child of her mum Doria and was raised as such with a different upbringing in a separate household after her parents divorce as a youngster. Her previous contacts with the ‘half siblings’ have been minimal at best.

Not inviting people who are continually - inconsiderate, exploitive, to ones wedding is nothing to do with being “kind”. And everything to do with pure common sense.

Right Dman, as I say, it’s a no win situation that can’t be controlled unfortunately. The happiness of Harry and Meghan’s day should be just that without the drama from family.

Its not a matter her parents were divorced, that she was raised in a different household then the others

Meghan wasn't raised by Doria as a single mom (in that only one parent involved). Though different houses, her parents both actively raised her. She had two houses and two loving parents that seem to be continually ignored. The reason she had little contact with her half siblings was not because of lack of contact with her dad. It was because of a massive age difference between her and her half siblings who were almost grown when she was born (closer in age to her nieces and nephews).

I agree. Meghan is close to both her parents. She spent Thanksgiving with them last year. Doria is more active and Meghan lived with her more but Thomas Sr wasn't a dead beat dad by any means. He provided for Meghan and gave her all he could (putting her in expensive schools). Her siblings were in their teens when she was born. Meghan is only 4 years older than one of her nieces who she is pretty close to. The dynamics are different.

Tom Jr and Samantha opened themselves up to scrutiny when they went to the press. I think they didn't count on the public backlash and negative stories about them written by the media they courted.

Has anyone noticed that Meghan's ex husband and ex boyfriend haven't spoken out lately? It could end careers if they go one the attack.

I don't think it would 'end careers' for them to make a statement about the relationship. Especially not for a chef like Cory. I think it speaks more to the civil breakup she had with both of them. Just like Harry's ex's haven't been speaking about him either in the media.

I find it humorous when people think it is only the commoner relations who have to worry. There are exes, friends, and family on both sides (thinking Spencers) who could be an issue with press.

Megan's ex boyfriend did have some unique timing with a chicken video

It is. It is about a couple with kids though, and having to share custody with a royal step parent. More along lines of Haakon and MM and Marius' father. Said it came about when Trevor and his friend who are doing the show pilot, were talking about if Trevor and Meghan had kids before divorcing.

I hate she might invite them just to be a bigger person and to likely shut them up. They getting rewarded for their awfulness.

Here is the article of Tom Jr blaming Meghan https://www.usmagazine.com/celebrity...drunken-fight/
This is absolutely terrible.

As for Meghan inviting these people. I wouldn't, but she's not me. She knows what's best for her. IMHO inviting estranged family, who have sold you out to the media is different than inviting strangers because you have a huge wedding and seats to fill.

Yeah they tried to play it off like it isn't really about Meghan. Mmmkay. Not that I am surprised he would try to capitalize off it. He is a producer after all. It is just a little on the nose.

Meghan will do whatever makes her feel right.

For ages I've advocated ignoring these relatives, but it might well be better if Meghan was the bigger person and invited Tom, embarrassing as he has been. He's so proud of her and it would be such a big event for him. When he arrives for the wedding with his girlfriend she could then have a word with him about keeping the mouth zipped for the rest of his life!
I’m sorry, but permitting into your life family who constantly demonstrate disloyalty and indiscretion is asking for trouble.

The estranged half relations weren’t at her first wedding for a reason and I don’t see why that has to change this time around.

Errr, she did live with her mum after the divorce, her mum Doria did raise her as an only child because she is her only child. And I never said Meghan didn’t spend time with her dad either or that he didn’t play a part in raising her too.

Meghan describes herself as only child and Harry’s “family she never had” comment is the real clue.
