Some on Twitter etc are suggesting that this is an attempt by KP and Jason K to backpedal, dampen down expectations of this romance and try and rebuild bridges with the British tabloids, though why TPTB should try to do that in such a fashion and through the auspices of the Daily Fail, heaven only knows. God forbid that any British tabloid journalist's nose should have been put out of joint by those hurtful allegations in the KP statement. We all know they are all as pure as the driven snow!

To be fair, there were many people who questioned the wisdom of the release. It's entirely possible that William was one of them, in a "is this really a good idea" way.

I think it's more likely that he did express "hey is this the best idea?" and was overheard by someone who then decided to pocket a bit of extra blunt than that KP is strategically leaking stories trying to walk this back.

Incidentally, the whole thing has actually, IMO, boosted the coverage of the Caribbean trip; Richard Palmer was expressing a lot of doubt that he'd be going. The Meghan confirmation hits and suddenly he's on a plane. Many of the first stringers (Rebecca E, VicMurphy) aren't there because of Zika, so having Richard was actually rather a big deal.

The royals no longer play games when it comes to privacy. William put his foot down for Catherine. Now, Harry is putting his foot down for Meghan. The Queen fully support this and has too put a legal foot down when it comes to her family privacy.

When it was speculated that Harry and Meghan are seeing each other, racial undertones were included in the articles and safety situations did occur. Harry did what was right, and the media didn't like it. It's obvious the media would start writing some of Harry's family didn't like it either. The KP letter ruffled the British press feathers a bit. They want the family to be against the letter and on their side. Hopefully they got the point though. Harry isn't going to fool around with them and they've been warned.

Daily fail are well known for making up totally bs stories. George Clooney famously called them out on it. They wrote a completely fabricated story about his now mother-in-law. After Harry sent out the statement, DM know to toe the line. They know no one will come out and refute this story.

The way the press treated Meghan before the letter was awful, and since the letter the dog whistle element has calmed down. So if anything while the attention has not died down, the racial undertones have dissipated.

The Duke of Cambridge gave Prince Harry his blessing to issue a controversial statement about alleged harassment of his girlfriend Meghan Markle, it emerged on Saturday.

The two brothers had a heart to heart conversation about whether it was right to make a public plea to internet trolls to stop their “abuse” of Miss Markle, which also officially confirmed the Prince and Miss Markle were an item.

Although the Duke is understood to have been wary of setting a precedent for confirming royal relationships, he agreed with his younger brother that the situation had gone too far and that something had to be done.

It was reported on Saturday that the Duke was unhappy with Prince Harry’s decision to go public, but Kensington Palace issued a statement at the Duke’s specific request to say that the opposite was true.

That's the one thing that stands out about the Daily Mail. Their photographs are top notch. Now if they could just do something about their writers. Maybe send them to school for a degree in journalism perhaps?

Harry says I love to another woman... The truth behind it.

It was a 54 year on his tour and he was being kind. It meant nothing. A rag spreading lies.

I thought the whole incident was kind of cute. It certainly made the day for one woman. I don't think Harry was lying either when he said "Love you!" to someone else. Harry is just naturally the kind of person that has a deep love and respect for other people that he just happens to share the planet with. People matter to him which shows in how important it is to him to make a difference in this world.

There is also a big difference between being loving and being in love.

I wonder whether we can believe THIS article. Still, it does have a couple of nice photos from the tour.

While I do think it was an awkward foot in mouth moment, I don't think there was any kind of serious harm intended or came anywhere close to trying to embarrass Harry. The new romance had gone viral right before the tour started and when it did, Meghan was the invisible elephant on the island and like everyone else that doesn't live under a rock, the PM knew about it and was trying to be lighthearted about it.

Do I think he needs to apologize? No.

I think Harry has moved on. It was tactless though.

DM aren't even trying to be sneaky with that last little paragraph.
Quote:
Meanwhile, it was suggested yesterday that Prince William is dismayed at Harry’s decision to confirm publicly his romance with Miss Markle as he believes this will only serve to fuel speculation.
Didn't KP just release a statement, that William supports Harry completely about the statement? How fitting that DM chose not to mention that part.

Harry is due back from his tour on December the 4th. Meghan's new film, a British thriller, is being given a British release on Monday 5th. I'm not sure whether 'release' means a full-blown premiere. I wouldn't think so for such a minor film, but Meghan may well be in London promoting it in that week. Paps and photographers' field day if she is.
