I have to say that Ellen isnít my favourite talk show host by a mile. Nevertheless, itís a bit of light entertainment, not everything has to be serious and deep.

It looked to me like two women who get on well together chatting and having some fun. And I was very glad to see that Archie is a ginger, though different to his dad who was more coppery haired when small. Happy to see that Meghan still actively supports paid maternity leave. And I am sure that the single mum appreciated the gift of 40k from Ellen and Meghan. It will certainly help her pay a few bills.

I watched the interview and it was lighthearted - I actually enjoyed it too. Nothing controversial, just light entertainment. Pretty standard for the Ellen show

I have to agree. Watching Meghan drink out of a baby bottle was so uncomfortable. The whole prank just felt a bit mean spirited on Ellen’s part. But that appears to be Ellen’s type of humor. She seems to enjoy embarrassing her celeb guests.

Sadly I have to agree.

The baby bottle, along with the other ridiculous antics, reminds me of the old TV special "It's a Royal Knockout."

You read my mind.

And if Meghan is not VERY careful she is going to end up being Fergie for the millenials...with a better wardrobe.

Someone should emphasize to the Sussexes that talk show hosts are NOT their friends. They are in it strictly for ratings and in the case of Ellen, making you look as silly as possible. In fact, the more famous the sillier.

Remember Ellen having Michelle Obama push her around the drugstore in a shopping cart?

What's even worse are the celebrities willing to play clown for Ellen... probably to emphasize how "relatable and down-to-earth" they really are under all that fabulousness.

Two observations:
Red hair runs on both sides of the family, and Archie's red hair can be from the Markle side.


I was not a fan of the prank, but in the early part of the skit / prank, I thought Meghan had good comedic delivery.

Ellen

I was surprised she went on Ellen, for two reasons.

1. Ellen has been accused of bullying, and this is her final season. Her star power is still great, but in decline. If I had to guess who Meghan would choose, it would have been Hoda on the Today show.
Kelly Clarkson is a rising star in the interview show format and May have been a better choice.

2. Ellen’s skits or scare tactics with her guests are often uncomfortable and ultimately embarrassing.

I’ve only seen ads for Ellen’s game show, but the premise seems to be the same…have a laugh at someone else’s expense. I suppose it follows in the genre of America’s Funniest Home Videos, which is successful but often cringeworthy.

I much preferred Ellen as a stand up comedian as she could be self deprecating.

Anyhow, Meghan didn’t seem to mind, and maybe that’s because they’re friendly in real life.

But, I worry those images of her squatting and drinking from a baby bottle will be memes for a long time whenever someone doesn’t want to take her initiatives seriously. She put her image at risk in this way. Harry’s interview with Cordon had that awkward bathroom scene but you couldn’t take an image of it…I think, actually and ironically, Harry may be more PR savvy.

This woman is still a British royal Duchess at the end of the day and drinking milk from a baby bottle etc is ridiculous behaviour for someone who still uses her title daily. Whether some people want to admit it or not this does degrade the Monarchy as she is the daughter in law and sister in law of the next two future Kings.

I agree with you Sophie.

I mean people used all her pre-Royal work against her anyways. There were papers calling her a porn star cause she filmed love scenes on her TV show. Cat ears and drinking milk are fine compared to that.

If the story Harry told about a senior Royal fretting about the appearance or skin tone of his future children with Meghan he or she can relax now.

Because just as I predicted before he was born, Archie does not look any less White than any of the other children in the House of Windsor.

I say IF the conversation took place because unfortunately I am inclined to question the veracity of most of Harry and Meghan's pronouncements now.

Any potential embarrassment to the BRF from her appearance on the Ellen show pales in comparison to her behaviour over the last few years: from the exit from "The Firm" that lacked either dignity or grace, her allegations of racism in her interview on the Oprah show, "forgetting" her involvement in the Finding Freedom book..... So my sense is that the BRF are not that concerned about what she said or how she may have come across on the Ellen show.

The fact anyone thinks Harry and Meghan should "relax" because their son "looks as white as the other children" is a problem within itself. I know that is likely not how you meant it but sheesh.

Exactly! Everything she has done in the last two years is more a reflection on her than the BRF. And as someone previously stated I believe there is a more of a tendency to take everything these two say with a grain of salt.

Meghan did her best to make it clear that she was distancing herself from the RF. (Except when she introduces herself, of course.) Does it really matter if people like or dislike her? Either way, few people think she represents the RF and their values in any capacity.

But I have to admit I do admire her tenacity. In the face of recent court developments, she keeps pretending that nothing happened and she's still a star. I can only wish she had adhered to the "Never complain, never explain" rule three or even two years ago. It's now clear that she can do it. She was just unwilling before, IMO, and that was when her problem was with tabloids, not the court of law.

When I say damaging I don't mean in terms of the royals having done anything wrong I mean that they need to be seen as special and different to the rest of us to merit the treatment they get. In the modern World this notion is evaporating quickly and when one on their close relatives behaves like this it is only going to speed up that process. Whether that's a good or bad thing is a matter of opinion but, without doubt, when people see things like this it does undermine the point of the institution.

That is not what Moonmaiden wrote or implied (unless by "anyone" you meant the Sussexes).

In which paper was that stated? The closest which I have found is an article from the Sun which stated that scenes from the show Suits had been posted on a pornography website. https://www.thesun.co.uk/clarificati...le-an-apology/

That's not how I interpreted Moonmaiden's comment either. This is how things can get out of hand very quickly and people start getting accused of all sorts.
