What do you mean by the bolded part?

I agree with you, though......and ultimately I think the British people probably don't care about Harry and Meghan anymore because they rejected the UK and chose another country. I doubt anyone wishes ill on them, but that is not the same thing as caring what they are up to or wishing that they were back. For H and M, the country they've chosen pretty much couldn't care less about them - outside of their devoted fans. Yes, there are those of us in America who love the Royals, but that's the BRF/Monarchy as a whole. There are a sub-set of fans - H and M stans - who will love the Sussexes no matter what and who will follow them no matter what. For the rest of us in America, we have much, much bigger issues....and even when we didn't have Trump or a Pandemic to deal with, interest in the Royals was never a national thing.

Thanks for posting the new photos of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, polyesco.

I’ve just checked out the restaurant’s Facebook, Instagram and website.

Don’t know why it’s being reported that a steak costs $125 dollars US - that’s not the price on the website menu.

Might be a bit strange for Prince Harry to eat off a plate with the business name looking back at him.

Reported as celebrating the baby news of the Fosters.

Won’t be surprised if the new baby gets a Royal godparent or two, especially if the two couples are close enough to spend Christmas with each other.

I think it was reported that the Fosters live only a couple of doors down the street from the Sussexes.

I dont think its bothering the British public all that much and I dont think that the majority of the British public were crazy about them when they married... but they weren't hostile. I think the press did seem to be more critical at the beginning than was usual.. but Im not sure what that was about. I agree that her family's being hostile to her, was probably a factor... (Possibly there was some racist feeling as well, I can't say)..But I think the fact that she was at odds with many of her birth family was something that gave the press something to chew on.. and it fuelled critical stories, which in turn fuelled the sort of nasty internet comments that are common nowadays. Or maybe the Press felt there was something rather fake about her, and that she would not fit in, and so they were more sharp in their attitude...
But if H and Meg had just gotten on with their work and lives, ignored the press, concentrated on their work, if they were doing a good job over the next couple of years, probably the public and press would have settled into a tolerant if not adoring attitude. But that's normal for royals and any public figures. They wont be adored all the time. I think that Meghan didn't expect to get any criticism at all, or she thought that if they did, the RF would somehow stop it..
But fact is nobody gets good press all the time.
In short, I dont think the public were all that excited by her. People who met her liked her but then that's usual.. the people who go to a royal event are usually there because they like the royal so the odds are that they will find the royal likable in the few mins they see her close up...

Wouldn't that be ironic that the Sussexes didn't have the decency to share the names of their child's godparents with the British public and their names will be splashed all over LA as sponsors or push partners, or whatever these vacuous people do when a baby is born.

In terms of fandom turning against other members of the Royal Family, I have seen some members of the Sussex Squad or Meghan supporters attacking other Royals on social media. For example, when Prince Charles did a moving tribute to the Windrush generation, some of the Sussex squad criticised Charles for not supporting Meghan, as a biracial woman from "UK's racism" (I personally think it's quite ridiculous and insulting to suggest that the British general public are racist).

Another example that I have read was after Princess Beatrice and Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi's engagement announcement, where some Meghan's fan attacked the couple for stealing the Sussex's attention from the Southern Africa tour. They also accused Princess Beatrice (or Edoardo) for "stealing" the design of Meghan's engagement ring (Princess Beatrice's ring looks nothing like Meghan's, it looks more like the Queen's).

Some of the Sussex squad have also slammed some Royal Family members as "stupid" and "uneducated" for supposedly not being academically gifted or even not attending university (Another rubbish comment given that the York Princesses have done quite well in secondary school and university; Prince Richard, Duke of Gloucester was a full-time architect).

There are other countless examples, where some of Sussex supporters are basically attacking the Royal Family at every cost. And their excuse (for attacking) is almost along the lines with "The toxic Royal Family did not protect Meghan".

Some these comments are vile and not just restricted to the Prince Charles, Camilla, William & Catherine. The York Princesses have recently become their recent target. Almost when every news about Beatrice and Eugenie comes up, they keep bringing Andrew's name in it.

I cannot remember a time when Cambridge supporters sending vile comments to Princess Beatrice and Princess Eugenie on social media during the tabloid/reports on the allege feud between the York Princess and The Duchess. Yes, there are some comments of "ugly step-sisters" or "freeloader", but these also come from Republicans/anti-monarchists or those not interested in the royal family.

It would even be sadder that Archie would probably (physically) see more "Baby Foster" than Baby Brooksbank and his other paternal cousins (George, Charlotte, Louis, Savannah, Isla, Mia & Lena), especially when Harry and Eugenie were close since childhood.

I am afraid the that police have been called in even. The online conflict have lead many people to act disturbing in real life.
Royal journalists and photographers have been attacked in real life, both physically and verbally. There is an alarming increase of people been added to the watch list for crazies interested in attacking the royal family - and yes a lot are around Prince Andrew , but it is just as much Meghan supporters.
Omid Scoobie made a lot about the threats about burning his house down. But I have been told that the Middletons, Tindels, Brookbanks, Rhys- Jones and Parker Bowles families are getting it as well.

There is also a lot that isn't been said at the moment - which I don't think a lot of people are picking up on. Because the covid crisis is keeping is quite well hiding. They are no longer allowing people to stand outside of places where there are engagements, yes - they will not be having impromptu walkabouts at the moment. But also because there have been coordinated protests to yell racists at royals during engagements. The thing is you just need one crazy person with a gun to believe that they are doing Meghan a favor. And this emotive dramatic conflict has caused many of them to come out of the woodwork.

I don't see the point in that especially the attacks on Kate. Harry and Meghan weren't fired they left voluntarily. It was entirely their own decision. So how is it Kate's fault they are gone?

There are crazies all over. I remember seeing a whole conversation of Meghan haters describing how people should “hit her stomach” to prove she really pregnant. Just go down the Megxit social media. Talk about fearing for that woman’s life. These people even stalked Doria and posted about it.

This is why high profile people have security.

There were vile Tumblr sites spreading poison about Meghan as early as October 2016 that garnished thousands of supporters each, plus many Twitter posts spreading hatred of Meghan and Harry to this day, and huge support to William and Kate at the same time, so it certainly is ascribing a lot of power and influence to Sussex Squad members to believe that the hatred is all going in the one direction.

I've also noted that in the last year or more (perhaps due to the spread of Covid) that a huge number of truly crazy conspiracy theories have sprung up on the Internet regarding elites around the world, including the BRF. There are certainly crazy people who believe that elites and anybody attached to them are planning harm to populations around the world. I'd be more wary of people who believe those than anything else.

Many here feel the same way.
But there were a few who were solely interested in Meghan, and unable to tolerate the slightest criticism of her.

That's why the Sussex threads were constantly shut down. Lately that doesn't seem to be an issue.

According to Finding Freedom, Omid Scobie at one point mentioned that Catherine send flowers for Meghan for her birthday. Meghan wasn't "exactly happy" that Catherine did not support her enough (I assumed it's from the media's attack or courtiers/staff not bending to Meghan's demand). I don't know how true the allegation is, but from what I have read on twitter, these Sussex's squad accuses Catherine and other members of the Royal family for not "publicly speaking and defending Meghan" or "privately support her". The first one is absolutely ludicrous, given that Royal Family members rarely give public statements and it's often palace staff that shuts down stories that were false.

Some of these supporter argues that had Catherine supported her sister-in-laws more, Harry and Meghan would not have left as senior working royals. I think it's completely bonkers really. They seem to think that "Meghan is perfect and can do no wrong", "Royal Family and British public are at fault that she is not happy and getting attacks" or "Meghan is a victim of a toxic, racist and misogynistic/sexist (old, stale, pale, male) institution"

Well, Harry and Meghan have now left the ranks of the working royals, so the criticism on all sides should subside from now on, everywhere, and that includes critical media comment from the tabloids on the Sussexes which continues daily as we speak.

No, it hasn't been an issue. However, as with a lack of tolerance of the slightest criticism, I do not believe that any praise of Meghan and Harry by posters should be immediately shot down, either.

Yep. Also we had high profile people come out and speak of how they were attacked for merely interacting with Meghan. The journalist from the The 19th went to twitter to talk about it. So did actress Yvette Nicole Brown.

I still see people on the internet claiming that Meghan faked her pregnancy and that Archie is not her child but from a surrogate. Unbelievable.

The internet has become a giant disseminator for trolls - unfulfilled self-hating people who relish the technological power to upset and terrorize - and above all, manipulate society. Like the gas-bag radio shock-jocks of old (and now), trolls are relatively small in number, but they relish the wildly outsized impact that they can make because decent people unfailingly allow themselves to be baited. I suspect 90% of harsh remarks about Meghan on the internet are intentionally posted to stoke polemic and division.

Yes, and with the internet it is sooo easy for all sorts of crazy people to get visibility.



It is such a shame how internet has gotten abused .. .but then humankind is very good at abusing everything; and sadly, even if it is only a very small percentage of people who are haters and trolls etc. they find a platform on internet and can pack together with other disturbed and sometimes dangerous people.
