I hope no one goes to check for the whereabouts of Samantha or TM. If they pop up on CBB, then they do, but there's no need to stalk them.

They can have August to rant until they pass out. The fall won't be so easy though I am sure they will try.

Absolutely this is all about Media strategy.

The media knew the BRF would be away for the summer break not long after the wedding.
SO what to report on!! Well heck there's always the annoying Markles who don't know when to shut up. So we the media will give them all the rope/airtime they need.
Then when the BRF return to work it will be business as usual reporting on various family doing their job with lots of nice photo's and the usual who wore what. And the markles will just be a footnote until the BRF go quiet again for the next holiday period. Probably christmas.
Then we will probably see the markles back in the news again during that quiet time.
This might be the family that just keeps on giving. To the media. The media are using them and they are too naive to see it. Because the paychecks are not that big.

Meghan is resolving the issue with dad. She is gettinng on with her new life.
Dad knows this but can't accept it.

This is an excellent article. I have followed Charlotte's blog on Kate since she first started it and now I am enjoying the one on Meghan too. I always enjoy her blog posts as they are well-researched. The cover the fashion, but they go far beyond that too by covering a lot of the historical aspects of the places that Kate and Meghan visit and the events they attend.

A beautiful summary. Meghan is the one that I’m more concerned about. I hope she’s coping well under all this craziness.

Excerpts
Harry is said to have scolded him for collaborating with the paparazzi and said: “This is what happens when you don’t listen to what we tell you to do.”

Thomas told a friend: “If Harry is offended by what I said to him, well, I’m more offended by what he said to me."

He added: “I want to say good luck and God bless to my daughter. I don’t expect to see her or hear back from her and that’s OK.

“I just want to have a father/daughter relationship. If that means Christmas cards, birthday cards and getting together for the holidays . . . that is what I want.

"The other thing is, and this will sound a bit greedy, but I took care of my mom the last five years of her life


Another song and dance. Too late Mr. Faux 'Pa' -- Boo hoo. You didn't 'make' your youngest daughter's success in life, and nothing you do or say now can ever make up for your egregious transgressions against her. You can't 'make' Meghan care about you the same way ever again. Neither can you ever repair the nastiness of your ridiculous and messy attacks upon her and her new family.

Try to make up with those older two monsters of yours and make contact with your adult grandchildren. The Duchess of Sussex and her future children are lost to you, and it's of your own doing. Just go away please.

I also really liked this article by Charlotte. Its also made me realize that even though its August and Harry and Meghan are staying well under the radar except for Harry's involvement in his charities in Africa, all eyes are still looking to Meghan even though we can't see her. Why? Because of the Moanin' Markles and their diatribes over and over in the press. We're wondering and discussing what Meghan should or shouldn't do and we're gaining an insight into this woman that has had her life turned upside down and inside out in this past year even without the e(strange)d family. IMO she's handled everything with grace, dignity and a whole lot of aplomb.

She has won the hearts of those that follow her just by being who she is. She's been very warmly welcomed into the fold of her new family and one cannot help but see the pride and the love Harry has for this woman as he looks at her. This is the woman that states she'd much rather be the woman that works rather the lady who lunches. This is a woman so comfortable in her own skin that although I can imagine that she is deeply hurt by her father's actions and his words, Meghan has the strength of character, the stamina of a titan and the intelligence to know she does not need people like this in her life and refuses to engage them.

This is what irks Samantha to the core. Its what annoys her father to no end that he's been relegated to the "noise" category. Deep down somewhere they must realize that Meghan is everything they've always wanted to be and have absolutely no clue how to attain it. Anyone can be like the e(strange)d Markles easily but the more the public and the press turn against the Markles and focus on how Meghan is handling all this, the good Meghan is trying to do in the world, and the more she gains the acceptance and the respect of the general public, the less relevant the Markles become and eventually have no recourse except to crawl back under their rocks somewhere into oblivion.

Give the Markles enough rope and eventually they'll hang themselves with it. That is the strategy that seems to be working well right now.

Well the Fail still trying to sell Operation Royal Takedown

Palace considering a ‘more aggressive’ strategy towards Meghan’s father Thomas Markle | Daily Mail Online

As in a previous post the editors are laughing and they are laughing at the Markles. They see the Markles as greedy and stupid poor relations of the Windsors that can be manipulated with a sensational headline. Those editors are banking on the Markles to scream the royals are plotting to do away with them. Watch the collective eye rolls on that.

With the War of the Moanin' Markles being so one sided, in order for the tabloids to keep this all going, they have to invent the other side of the war which is covertly under the radar and most likely doing more important things than paying attention to tabloids. They're using the "palace" to goad the Markles into reacting which they've found works so very well already.

In all actuality, I cannot for the life of me think of a single thing the "palace" or TPTB could do to stifle or gag or placate or cajole the e(strange)d family that would bring an end to all of this. There's no scenario I can think of that will not have a detrimental side effect.

The editors, for sure, are laughing their heads off. All the way to the bank.

KP should definitely not react to the Markles in any way. That would give the Markles a false sense of importance that they can goad the BRF into a reaction. They should continue to live their lives as normal. Continue with the family vacation. Then, as normal....the BRF will come back in the autumn and get back to their official duties.

Thank you Pranter for sharing such an awesome article on what is happening in regards to the Markle Debacle........I totally agree with the article and there is so much unsaid by the way the media for the way they are betraying Meghan who has done absolutely nothing wrong. I for one just can not believe that the media is allowed to get way with doing this......all our words have consequences when spoken and yet not the media...

The Fail just wants a huge confrontation hence all the get on a plane and go see your father and make us some money so we can justify paying these people money so they can abuse you and support our negative narrative for you.

Marlene Koenig has written a masterpiece on this whole Markle situation. This needs to be in the editorial of a respected British newspaper

What the markles are saying is just not news worthy any more. I get that the first interview with TM could be argued to be newsworthy, but now he doesn't have access to Meghan, he CLEARLY changes his stories from one interview to another, makes up stuff and lies, and it gets printed unchecked. Samantha has tweeted for the same thing for months now: Meghan is vile, cold, heartless, cruel for not respecting daddy, she needs to bow down to him. Month after month the same stuff, and it gets printed unchecked. That's not news. That's on the press, not Meghan, to challenge and control.

And like others have said, these same reporters kept awfully quiet, when there was work stuff to report, their publications chose to print the same old 'Meghan's half sister slams Meghan..' in multiple different ways...

She’s barely 3 months married and already faced so much nastiness and creepy behaviour from Thomas Markle. No one deserves that but it does look as though this man is determined to become the third person in her royal marriage/install himself in her marital life any which way he can. And the Publicity Hound sure loves the fame that goes with it. Him, Samantha & Jr (both estranged from their own children and in Samantha’s case her mum as well) are motivated by excessive greed, jealousy, hate but want the lifestyle & prestige of royal connections however tenuous that link is. Just a great shame anyone should have to face that level of harassment & malicious bullying, especially in a new marriage.

Ever wonder why the Media backers and the dwindling supporters of the abusive Markle trio never ever question the inconsistencies/lies/contradictions in Thomas Markle’s ever changing narratives....?? Hmmm!

Enablers of abusive behaviours have always existed and are a major part of the problem afaic. People like that just like the bullies they enable - try to force, shame, and basically manipulate a victim back into contact. And they usually have underlying motives, biases. I find it all so twisted & sick.

This is the best piece I have read about this. And it came from a blogger. Charlotte is right on every account. It would be so great if more actual reporters spoke out. So far, only Skykes and Scobie have.

Here we go again. Someone's brilliant idea of how this could be so easily solved. Of course it puts Doria in the monkey in the middle position acting as a go between Tom, Sr. and Meghan. Its taking for granted that Doria would even consider being a go between for a man that has done nothing but cause hurt and harm to her "flower". Doria also owes her ex-husband of decades absolutely nothing at all.

The source is quoted as being a "friend of the family" which to me means "we're making this all up because we're losing the audience".
