I dont think thats fair either. Princess Di didnt have a racist bone in her body and by all accounts her mother, the Queen doesnt either.

The queen is not her mother. You bring me a 90 year old, Rich af, white person. I’ll show you a racist.

Betty White is very rich, she is pushing 100, and I don't think she is a racist.

I don’t know that they were beloved worldwide. And I believe that there is some evidence that their reputations have improved as a result of the interview. 

I agree 100%.  Meghan was put through the ringer by the British tabloids.  She basically decided to fight back and tell her side.  And both of their reputations have improved.

The firm tried to muddy her up with staff bullying allegations a few days before the interview.  This was pretty transparent and wasn't a good move on their part.

She ain’t queen of England, I used to own Jamaica rich.  And India.  And Canada, Australia, New Zealand. Giant swaths of Africa. Etc. etc.  

please recognize that the queen and her husband were alive and participating in the British empire ruling over large portions of the gl9be. 

Betty White is awesome. Probably not a racist. Didn’t go on a publicity tour, around the world, in the 50’s and 60’s to reassure the natives that  English rule, was in their best interests.

Interesting. Turns out that Piers Morgan may have an ax to grind with Markle because he thought he stood a chance with her. Here he is saying that he had drinks with Meghan the night she later met Harry and that she then “ghosted” him. 

A 60 year old married man saying that a young woman half his age “ghosted” him after “having some drinks” with her the night she met and started dating a young man is pretty cringeworthy.

She probably thought he was another Bill Cosby and wanted to escape while she still could.

Great seeing him get all hurt when he's called out and walk out, at approx 1:30 in this clip.  Did he really think Meghan would want to date him??

I do think that both sides seem like not great people. I absolutely buy that racism runs through the royals and buy that it was probably exacerbated by her being a “commoner”.

But while it’s certainly possible that someone can just be unlucky with lots of terrible family, it’s a pretty big red flag that Markle seems to have bad relationships with literally every family member on both sides of the family. When you’ve broken off ties with everyone on your side of the family and everyone on your spouse’s side, the odds that you are the problem rather than everyone else seem somewhat high. And signing $$$ media deals and doing Oprah interviews while complaining about too much media attention definitely seems off.

Honestly, the best reaction to all of these folks, IMO, is probably just to ignore them and make them all irrelevant.

so the Royal family has been hyper-selective in who they are allowed to marry for hundreds of years.  Markle is not royal, a divorcee, and American (in addition to being black).  Honestly, the deck was stacked against her regardless of the color of her skin.

According to wiki page there's a ton of divorces in the royal family

I would say that Markle seems to be really well liked by all her friends and co-workers.  Outside of the issue with her Dad's family, she seems really well-liked.  The fact that you are not getting a bunch of people that associated with her crawling out of the wood work to disparage her speaks volumes.  There are a lot of things written by friends and co-workers that really praise her.

well, sure but Elizabeth II's uncle, Edward VIII was forced to abdicate the throne because he married an American divorcee (Wallis Simpson was a 2x divorcee but white so not a perfect match)

Did I read correctly that he was plotting to take back the throne after Hitler won WW2?

I believe it was the Germans that concocted that plan. Edward did visit the Germans, who are said to have devised a plan to kidnap Edward and reinstate him as a puppet King after the Germans took over England. That plan was said to have been devised three years after Edward's visit to Germany. Historians still debate what happened when, and it's unclear if he was actually in on the plan. Apparently there are letters showing communication between the two sides and German documents that outline the plan (but nothing definitive to show Edward was a willing participant or knew about it). 

There is more describing all that HERE.

Stolen from Twitter:  I thought we won a war ~250 years ago so we don't have to care about the royal family any more.

I don't get it, not only in America though.  The British people who were subjects and held back historically by the Royal Family, why do they still hold them in high esteem.

The whole thing is odd to me but if it matters, I like Harry and Meghan more than any of the others.

I wonder what Johnny Rotten's thoughts are on all this

Yep I have a hard time buying any of them being victims.  If Meghan and Harry were mistreated then that is unfortunate but wouldn't it be best just to move on?   

I could be off base here but going on talk shows indicates to me me they want the spotlight that goes with being a member of the royal family without any of the responsibilities.

Airing all of this dirty laundry in public is a richard move IMO.

Perfect post

 

My dad has been hammering the "you can choose your friends you cannot choose your family" mantra my entire life.   No matter how crappy you may think they are at the time you just dont betray them like that.

 

Then inevitable divorce is going to be full of lulz

The Oprah interview tonight.  It's two hours and its all the talk in the UK.   The Royal Family may be exposed some.

They are who we thought they were...the royal family are who we thought they were. If you want to crown them then crown their asses but they are who we thought they were.

I have definitely cut toxic family out of my life. No offense to your dad at all but that mindset is crazy to me.

No doubt.  Look at her half sister that wrote a 'tell all' book.  She's 17 years older than Meghan and they never lived together.  Meghan grew up an only child.

Quote

Meghan told viewers that she has not seen Samantha in “at least 18, 19 years” and “before that 10 years.” She also noted that the author “changed her last name back to Markle in her early 50s … only when I started dating Harry,” adding, “So, I think that says enough.”

As far as the OP I had no idea who MM was before this thread.  Really don`t care if I never see or hear from Harry and her again..can also put the rest of their clan in the mix too as they basically are a bunch of spoiled rotten people who have trouble dealing with the reality of life.

You misunderstand.  Trust me I have cut a toxic sister in law completely out of my life and its refreshing.  (there is even a thread on here about it) But I dont publicly throw her under the bus.  I am just saying they are still family and you shouldnt go chernobyl just because you can.

That is where I am coming from.  That is his dad, his brother, and his grandparents.  And it is the "family business" that could be destroyed.

More likely he thought he had an inside source with the royal family, which can be extremely lucrative for a rumor monger media guy like Piers. He’s been lashing out at her after finally accepting the fact she’s not going to help him.

Now that's an interview! From the master of "I'm not a celebrity/come and see the celebrity!" man himself. I love the idea of getting old Johnny Rotten's opinion on the whole vacant farce.

I have no doubt it was tough living in the British Royalty spotlight, but spare me the “woe is me” now that they are “out,” they stepped away multi-millionaire’s and are receiving yearly million dollar stipends. And despite all this hating the spotlight they seem to be going out of their way to stay in it.

Seems all like a marketing ploy to me. They are trying to build their brand and make some money all while trying to not be controlled by the crown while still profiting off the royal angle. Won’t be long before there’s a reality tv show, multiple clothing lines, perfume, etc. A decade from now they probably will be living next door to the Kardashians and worth ten times what they are now.

A very American thing to do by the way, at least in this ridiculous celebrity crazed society we live in.

Apparently they already live next to Oprah, so they are in a high rent district. They've already cashed in to the tune of at least $150 million between Netflix and Spotify deals. Meghan has come a long way since opening briefcases on Deal or No Deal. Don't believe an actor or actress when they say they don't want to be in the spotlight. That's EXACTLY why people become actors or actresses.
