She is of course a staunch republican/anti-monarchist, socialist and Corbyn supporter.

I am so glad she got voted out in the 2019's general election with a greater majority than she was elected in 2017. Don't get me wrong, it's not her politics, it's the personal insulting comments directed at the Royal Family members and other politicians that I have problem with.

Lecturing the whole world about this and that, when she can't even forgive her own father.

I hope the Queen has summoned him!!

Is he really likely to be coming back? And if the queen wants to tell him off she can do so via skype or something.

If the Queen has ordered him back is one thing, but if he returns for a while because of TAXES is something else again all together. Wanting all the PERKS because he or both feel they deserve them or are entitled to, is something WHY?. If Meghan wants to vote for B and H, let her she is an American after all. Maybe she should ask him about Tara Read? no answer yet.

I hope HMTQ checks for hidden cameras if they meet. Harry is at the stage where I wouldn't be surprised if he tried to "sell his grandmother"!

Why is the Title constantly used? They are doing this for themself's not for the Q representation. Or do the people who put this on air feel no one else will listen to their podcast if it is only Harry and Meghan??

Actually, if Harry is summoned back to the UK it will be by his grandmother and not HM, The Queen. Harry no longer works for the "Firm" and the Queen is no longer his "boss" so to speak.

If I'm remembering right, Meghan also had to return to the US every so often when she didn't have British citizenship. Harry doing the same is probably a very ordinary thing to do. Not working for the "Firm" doesn't mean that Harry cannot enter the UK whenever he wants. He's a British citizen.

I've always believed that the Sussex family would return to the UK often but not returning to rejoin the "Firm" but basically to visit with friends and family. A *lot* of people do this.

Having a title is *not* dependent on working for the "Firm" and HM, The Queen. The Duke of York no longer works for the "Firm" and retains the title of "Duke".

Yes, other than their titles, they don't have anything else to differentiate themselves with the common celebrities.

However, if HM calls Harry on the carpet for being involved in US politics - or anything else - it will be as not just as grandmother, but as the monarch. He may not be a working Royal, but he’s got a title, so he has to be expected to abide by certain precepts. If he doesn’t want to do so, then he should give up his title - or have it stripped from him. As a grandmother, HM can certainly express her disappointment in Harry...

It would be nice for Harry to see his father and grandparents especially, but I don’t see him returning often for that, especially during the pandemic.

And another breakdown of part of the new Montecito home ... though it may not be the couple's actual house -

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/a...e-podcast.html


The Sun is reporting the podcast was done at a recording studio ... and also that Simon Cowell has been advising them, now they are "moving into the entertainment industry".

Interesting discussion I seem to have started! It's been good to read all of your different responses. I do agree that the interest in the royals seem to has diminished since the Sussexes left, but after the wedding there was a gained interest in the rest of the royals as a whole because of Meghan - I knew a lot of people who admitted they didn't like the royal family but now that Meghan had married into it, they wanted to learn more about HM and her children, and even the rest of the extended family. I think these might be exceptional but I have noticed a lot of people on Twitter commenting on more royal related news since Meghan and Harry's wedding who wouldn't have otherwise.

To be fair, I do believe she and Harry tried with her father. And sent him a plane ticket in the mail. I don't know what else she could have done since he obviously was more interested in (attention, money) by going to the media. How could she "forgive him" if he kept rushing to the media (and he admitted he got paid for it) saying less than complimentary things about her and Harry to the media. Sad situation but in some cases the person is too stubborn even to listen.

I hope the Queen did not summon him especially since it is still a dangerous time with covid 19. Risky business.

I think and this only me ... that greater respectability has rejoined the British RF since their departure. I have always loved being a country with the Queen as head of state BUT I actually lost interest during that whole horror that was that Sussex period... I really just wish if they want privacy and independence the latter financially the reportedly have that they just move forward and really be quiet.

It is a dilemma. They were criticized for accepting money from Charles. Yet when they did stop accepting money from him and are going to earn their own money, they are criticized still. If they are actively working for charities, they can't keep silent if they are supporting it and have to call attention to it. If they just sat back they would be criticized for doing nothing. And then The COVID 19 situation radically changed the arc of this story.

I think "The Crown" also had a part with that one.

Interesting that the Duchess has said she was returning between official engagements on the South African tour to tend to their son -

https://people.com/royals/meghan-mar...ng-exhaustion/


Same thing happened when they were staying at Admiralty House a few streets away from me here in Sydney.

The couple returned to their quarters a lot between engagements here.

It suprised me at the time that they did it that way, instead of wearing something appropriate for a couple of events, and simply going on from one to another.

I think Megan really struggled with being on show - needed constant breaks from the attention and being on best behaviour.

And that is also why they had friends here with them and took break days/nights.

Meghan was in the early stages of pregnancy on the Australasia tour. I suffered badly from morning sickness early in my pregnancies and certainly wouldn't have wanted to be on show constantly. I also felt tired a lot of the time. And in SA Archie was still being breast fed. Being a nursing mother takes it out of you physically as well. Not to mention facing constant criticism the entire time of the pregnancy and birth, and afterwards, from online trolls and the tabloids.

Thank you for sharing your perspective as a citizen of the UK. I am just so sorry that the Sussexes chose to depart in the manner that they did.
