Part V: Bitch about Harry's "Spare"!

First question, how many of you have read this mess?

by Anonymousreply 334March 22, 2023 7:05 AM

I went into a Waterstones just after Christmas to have a look at the sales. Hundreds of copies of 'Spare' were being used as stands for other books, as props for bits of furniture, as chairs for the wains to sit on while they used the play area.

Meghan has been unusually silent lately, that can only mean one thing....she's cooking up something! Let's take some guesses as to what it is.

Her triumphant return to Instagram?

MIRACLE BABY arc! Meghan, announces after 3 stress induced miscarriages, she is now with child!

Another award?

Divorce arc: Meghan! A brave "young mother" faces the harsh world alone! Harry painted as unstable, and drunk!

"Meghan has been unusually silent lately, that can only mean one thing....she's cooking up something!"

Or maybe she's just too embarrassed by "Spare" to show her face. That'd be natural.

If Meghan proofread the book and thought it was okay, then she (and her husband) must lack self awareness and shame.

by Anonymousreply 6February 20, 2023 2:43 AM

One of the weirdest things about this pair is that they truly seem to be unable to see what they really look like. Both actually and figuratively.

For example, Meghan's wardrobe choices when she was in the UK were frequently ill fitting and badly chosen as to style. While there were some times when she looked good, by and large it was more of a miss. The Oscar de la Renta dress she wore early on to the wedding of one of Harry's cousin is a perfect example. The dress would have looked good on a woman with a different figure, but was a mistake on Harry's wife. A woman in her late 30s should by that age have a good idea of clothing styles that work and don't work for her. I couldn't help but wonder what she saw when she looked in the mirror that morning.

Besides the clothing issue, I don't think I'm the only one who has been more than puzzled by many of their actions. What were they thinking?

Case in point... After the Oprah interview with Harry saying he hadn't heard from his father, the next morning their CBS mouthpiece Gayle is more than happy to break the news that there was a family call to the Sussex the previous night, but no progress was made.

What a stupid, stupid move by blabbing about the call.

By doing that, they showed Harry's family that there could now be the likelihood that any communication, formerly apparently thought to have remained private, could be announced to the world.

Not only that. Any celebrities they (the Sussex pair) might want to cultivate, now know that their "private" communications could be exposed. The same for people they might want to work with.

I find this repeated pattern of not seeing things clearly to be bizarre.

According to the Daily Beast (yeah, I know), Dimbo and D-List are definitely being invited to the Coronation, and if they show up, will be relegated to the background with the other non-working royals. They will have no role and no special treatment. Will their egos be able to bear it? Also, King Charles is definitely not giving Harry a pre-Coronation summit and apology as Harry demanded.

I'm about a third of the way through the book (I started in early Fenruary) and so far, I enjoy it. At first, I wondered how a dumb-ass like Harry (who admits to being a dumb-ass) could write such an entertaining book, but then found out (via research) he didn't write it - a ghostwriter did the job. Well, whoever wrote it - congrats to you ! It has become the best-selling memoir of all time in both the US and the UK. Penguin Books had shown a profit in the second week of release for the book, when it ordered another printing of 1M copies.

Last weekend, I mentioned to a friend of mine that I was reading the book and I was enjoying it. This 70 year old 'British broad', as she fondly calls herself all the years she's been in America (she moved to America in her mid-40s) , was horrified I would stoop so low. She thought it was a sacrilege to read such a book about the Royal Family written by a Royal ! And she was dead serious. She holds the Royal Family in the highest regard, and was saddened by the Queen's passing. She informed me that Harry was disrespectful to the late Queen by releasing the book, and anyone who reads the book (me) is just as disrespectful to the Queen !

by Anonymousreply 15February 25, 2023 3:30 PM

Rumor has it that Harry will be adding an extra chapter to the paperback version of 'SPARE' which is due out the end of this year. once hardcover sales have declined. In an interview this past December, Harry said he had originally wrote a total of over 800 pages - and it was to be released in a two volume set (same with Streisand's original plan for her memoir). However, Random House asked for one book - so he edited it down to 400 pages, and put the extra 400 aside. He also said, at the time, he would not be including any of the discarded pages in 'bonus chapters' in later editions of the book (including paperback release). I guess he changed his mind.

According to the publisher, his book is the highest-selling non-fiction book of all time. Streisand said, "Wait until november 7".

One of the more interesting things about the book was seeing what was really going on with other people through Harrys' eyes, while Harry himself has no clue what he's seeing!

You can see Meg using Harry's fears, particularly of the press, to manipulate and guild attachment with him. You can see William gradually distancing himself, as Harry grows from one kind of mess to another, and then another. You can see Charles gradually despairing as his son goes from unstable to completely irraitonal, and finally giving up when Harry is screaming that the family has got to use all their resources to protect Meg from the press or she'll be killed the way Diana was. And Harry understood NONE of this.

This whole eviction thing screams the Sussexes, which just happens to work well for Charles instead. Didn't they say that they were packing up the house to move everything to CA when they went back for the Jubilee? Isn't that where Meghan found her secret diary she kept during her time in the UK, packing up her underwear drawer? The one that she completely forgot about until The Cut interview? Could this be a concrete excuse for them to get out of the Coronation. But then, would they really pass that up? Will they bravely go back for the Coronation to pledge allegiance to Charles, though the BRF effectively made them unhoused in the UK? Will they be sleeping rough in tents with privacy banners across?

Thousands upon thousands of people can become celebrities or influencers these days, they are a dime a dozen. Only a select few people are born into Royalty or are able to marry into Royalty, it's a very unique and privileged life.

Harry has exposed the lies of those in the royal family - you can believe him or believe the royals who have remained silent. A royal inquiring how dark Meghan's child will be is not ok. Harry confirmed that Camilla leaked to the press some information that he deemed dangerous. The queen was scheduled to have lunch with Harry when he planned a visit to London, and then her people gave no explanation for why it was cancelled - even she didn't know, but Harry said it was because William and Charles told her to as they wanted the royals to become more distant from him.

He just sounds paranoid and delusional.

by Anonymousreply 80March 4, 2023 6:22 PM

Prince Harry tonight said he always felt different from the rest of his family and that Diana felt the same, as he opened up about his 'broken home' upbringing and how he had been 'saved' by Meghan.

The Duke of Sussex sat down with controversial 'toxic trauma' expert Dr Gabor Maté for a 90-minute conversation that saw him give a raw and vivid account of the pain he continues to suffer as a result of losing his mother aged 12.

In the £19-per-ticket livestream event that included a free copy of his memoir, Spare, Harry discussed his drug use, his views on the war on Afghanistan, and how he doesn't see himself as a 'victim'. Yet he failed to mention his brother William once.

Describing his struggles to find his 'authentic true self' while growing up, he said: 'I felt slightly different to the rest of my family. I felt strange being in this container, and I know that my mum felt the same so it makes sense to me.'

The royal - who Dr Maté publicly diagnosed with attention deficit disorder (ADD) - said he constantly hugged his children, Archie and Lilibet, to 'shower them with affection' - something he doesn't believe he received from his father, King Charles.

He also spoke of the importance of parents not arguing in front of children, saying: 'Do not have those disagreements, arguments, whatever it is… Luckily my wife and I don't have those.

'The idea of having those in front of the kids? I assume that my parents probably had a lot of those [rows] in front of me, maybe that's where it comes from… that's not a good idea.'

In a wide-ranging discussion that contained fresh digs at the Royal Family in the run-up to King Charles' coronation in May, the Duke -

Said he was a good candidate for the army because 'they recruit from broken homes'; Added that 'a lot of us...' [his fellow soldiers] 'didn't necessarily agree or disagree' with the West's invasion of Afghanistan; Described his ongoing emotional turmoil, saying: 'Since age 12 apart from being in a state of shock I was in fight or flight'; Said therapy helped him to 'break free and live' from his 'dysfunctional' family and he felt 'incredibly free' after Megxit; Was told by Dr Maté that he has Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD), prompting the prince to joke 'a free session, great'; Revealed using cannabis had 'really helped' him mentally but cocaine 'did nothing' for him; Said using the psychedelic drug ayahuasca 'changed me' and 'helped me deal with the traumas and pains of the past'; Boasted about the favourable Amazon reviews for his book, saying people had been writing 'essays' praising it; Asked about the concept of service to others, said: 'It's a theme of the book because it's a theme of my life', adding: 'sharing is an act of service'; Told how he had experienced 'burnout' after thinking 'I just need to help everybody'; Said his 'exceptional' wife Meghan had helped him avoid being 'stuck' in the Royal Family; Dr Maté began the conversation by discussing the reaction to the book and how critics had accused him of wallowing in his own sense of victimhood.

That's funny. "Service" was never once mentioned in any article or review about Spare. Self-service, yes. He believes he's a generous person by expressing some of the most self-pitying thoughts and beliefs ever committed to print. Wallowing = Service to him. And for profit, to boot!

Also, remember that since he was a toddler, William has been outwardly focused due to the circumstances with his needy, unstable mother. Diana would lock herself away in the bathroom and weep while under 5 William consoled her through the door and push tissue under it. He was a witness to a lot of lability. When slightly older he became her confidant and was aware of her lovers and issues. He didn't have the luxury of developmentally appropriate self-focus of a child. Harry, OTOH...

Listened to the audio book Spare . Hearing Prince Harry tell his own story rather then reading arbitrarily cherry picked quotes warped and distorted in the tabs makes all the difference. Harry comes across in his own words as honest, candid, funny, self deprecating and thoughtful..Quite charming actually. The type of bloke you could go share a pint or a blunt with. Doubt anyone could say that of his Pa or Big Bro. He seems to actually be holding back especially in anecdotes about his late Gran. If you really want to hear what the man has to say, strongly recommend the Audible version of Spare. BTW he has a very dulcet voice.

In Spare Harry says that when he was in Afghanistan ,about to go into combat against the Taliban ,his CO told him he needed to make a will. He had to stipulate where he would like his body to be buried. He said the garden at Frogmore Cottage because 'it was so peaceful". First his father refusing to let his son, a combat veteran where his uniform at his Gran's funeral . Now his father takes away Frogmore.. If this vile vindictive behavior doesn't shine a spotlight on this truly petty nasty little man Charles true character for you ,you Windsor toadies have no decency like your "monarch". Shame.

Try being raised in a strict christian home, attending christian school K-12, etc. and then coming out while being bullied at school and your parents wanting to lock you up in a psych ward because there must be something wrong with you to turn you gay. And there are people who have it a lot worse than me, I was never physically beat except for some spankings when young, there are children that were sexually and physically abused by their parents.

So shut the hell up Harry whining because you don't get to be King. I have never said anything in public about my family and I try to love them but I limit the amount I see them.

I cannot stand to listen to him and would not pay a penny for anything he or his wife come out with.

R92 She's now the fucking Queen of England. I'd say she's made some pretty good decisions for herself. Certainly better than those made by her predecessor. And Diana was hardly as pure as the driven snow herself.

Moreover, Camilla didn't break up the Wales marriage. Diana was boffing Barry Manakee, one of her bodyguards, well before she and Charles separated. It was only then that Charles and Camilla reunited.

It's one more thing that's pissed me off about the Crown: the whoppers and the legends and the speculation are now the truth because we've seen them on the telly. The real history is being re-written because in life Diana was mad as a hatter, a hater, a lousy manipulator, and had the emotional stability of a wombat on meth. In the late 1990's we stopped in Stanley, the port for the Falkland Islands, on a cruise around South America and were treated to a demo by the land-mine clearing team, saw the reindeer with one antler (they think he swam there - they didn't bring him) in their "Zoo" and had a tour of their endless greenhouses without which fresh veg wouldn't exist that far down in the South Atlantic, saw the Cathedral with the Narwhal Tusk cross out front and had lunch at Government House with the Governor who'd I'd known since he was at Harvard. Wandering around the reception room after introductions, my husband picked up the standard government-issue B&W glamour shot of by-then dead Diana (Scavullo?) off a side-table and said something a lot of Americans thought then, words to the effect of "poor thing, what a loss, she was so beautiful," with more politeness than enthusiasm but sincere nonetheless. Our host from the FCO had worked on some of Diana's tours when she was Pss of Wales and said she was one of the biggest headaches they'd ever dealt with, presumably meaning as opposed to the rest of royals. Meghan hadn't shown up on the BRF's doorstep yet, so there was no comparison, but he spent ten minutes at lunch explaining to my husband that had Diana lived it would have been inevitably led to a greater disaster because of her "impulsivity," a trait she appears to have passed on to her second son. Or as he summarized it, "As you Americans say, she was batshit crazy."

Multiple Blind Items that I have read have a consistent theme which is that Harry gets up every morning and spends most of that morning isolated in the garden smoking joints. He sees the children once a day and Meghan is the same. This doesn't feel out of the question. Harry is an addict and Meghan was really the most unnatural mother I have ever seen. Archie was hanging sideways from her snugly and Meghan is smiling for Backgrid. I think it will be very interesting to watch the kids grow up into adults. Will Meghan be a Madonna with no TV, internet, inorganic anything or will she try to be Kris Jenner. I think Harry holds her back from pimping the kids.

Look at these losers. Are you people blind? The bleached blonde zombies who scream the Donald is the sexiest man they ever have laid eyes on have the same glassy eyes as the ratbag royalist fraus who find His Majesty Charles III noble and his blushing "bride" the very figure of a modern Queen. Look at these relics. Are you blind as well as stupid? What personal character traits have this lot ever displayed that make you want to grovel to them? Accident of birth? In what way are Charles and Camilla admirable human beings? Worthy of reverence? Or like your Murican brethren are you just masochistic authoritarian "subjects".? I really want to know why you feel loyalty to them? Is it just hatred of Harry and Meghan and their children because they showed your emperor has no clothes? Is that all ya got? Really?

I think the Harry defender is trolling and trying to get a rise out of what they perceive to be a horde of racist fraus.

If you say you feel sorry for him, you don't like the concept of monarchy or the current working royals, he's living his best life--fair enough. But the over-the-top claims about his goodness/intelligence or the high quality of his memoir can't be serious.

Hed: Prince Harry bares his oozing stigmata yet again

Imagine being a time traveller from the medieval period. Imagine you have landed in 2023. Imagine thinking: “And how do the noble kings at the top of this golden and wondrous society inspire and guide their subjects?” And flicking through some online stuff, and seeing: “Prince Harry will unpack his trauma live in an ‘intimate conversation’ with Dr Gabor Maté.”

What is happening?

Why is he doing this?

Hasn’t ol’ frosty pecker unpacked his trauma enough?

It was the “live” bit that made me bellow — as if, after all these years, after Megxit, the mercy flight (plus dogs) to Canada, Tyler Perry, Oprah, the Ripple of Hope Award, anxiety, pain, racism, “archetyping”, and now, this week, the Frogmore Slap — the couple have told us they are actually “OK” with being booted out of Windsor — Harry thinks we STILL need to see yet more blood oozing from the tastefully airbrushed royal stigmata. It’s quite some arrogance, that.

Harry’s trauma livestream, a one-hour live therapy session slash interview arranged by his publisher with the Hungarian-Canadian psychologist Gabor Maté, is the latest mutation in the Harry-Meghan suffering industrial complex.

The marketing was: you’ve read the book, you’ve seen the television series, you can experience the Royal Raindrop’s pure, uncut trauma and collapse in real time, before watching him build himself up again with the help of a rockstar therapist in a single hour. If that ain’t a Victorian circus freakshow act, I don’t know what is. Watching the live feed was extraordinary, like seeing Prince Harry being brainwashed live on global television. Whatever Dr Maté said, Harry automatically agreed, capitulated, hung on every single breath — even let him read out some nonsense German poem — at one point even saying to Maté, “correct me if I’m wrong”. It was like watching a prince being put under a spell.

Sitting opposite each other in yet another of the many bizarrely accoutred podcasting bungalows that seem to clog Harry’s part of California, Harry was dressed in a sort of Shane Warne memorial golf dinner outfit: taupe jacket, taupe jumper, taupe shoes. Only his trousers — navy chinos — suggested he’d ever been to England. Maté appeared in shades of “Buddhist Dad in crisis” olive green. On his fingers were many rings — never trust a man with man jewellery. He began the session with a Latin definition: “vulnerare”, he cooed, “is to wound”. He invited Harry to talk about his childhood. Or at least, Harry said a few things about not getting hugs, and Maté nodded in approval, but when Harry suggested in some ways he’d had an “incredible childhood”, he shook his head solemnly.

“It was a story of deprivation.”

Harry looked chastened.

When Maté read Harry’s book he was horrified. He saw a “little child” who was utterly abandoned, “born into a marriage where there was a lack of love”, born to a father (“Charles”) who himself had been “bullied mercilessly”, born into a family “where people are not held and held”, he said. And what are children born into such families? “Animals”.

Animals. Even Harry was silenced.

I’d never heard of Gabor Maté before this glossy fireside pile-on, but to say Harry was no match for this strident, stern, overbearing literal merchant of pain — albeit one with a million Instagram followers — would be an understatement. He invited Harry to see pain in almost everything, even one of the happiest times of his life: serving in Afghanistan. Immediately he let Harry know that he disagreed with the war, and instead of saying he was proud to serve, the prince quickly said: “There were a lot of us who didn’t necessarily agree or disagree but you were doing what you were sent to do”.

Imagine the power Maté must feel — this British royal bent at the knee, cringed, rolled over, accepted nearly every single one of his diagnoses. In the course of the chat, Maté diagnosed Harry with PTSD, ADD, depression, anxiety and panic disorder, plus much more.

I don’t often feel bad for Prince Harry — he is unflinching, unlikeable, unbending on television, evangelical and humourless in tone. But he’s mesmerised now, and he cannot get out of it, and it is rather sad to watch. One of Maté’s main beliefs is that humans are born in total innocence and purity and that it is this toxic world that wounds people, or vulnerares them, as I should now say. But I wonder what Maté thinks creates this “toxic culture”? Does it occur to him, for example, that many people might be driven to great pain and needless suffering by watching two, unprepossessing, not very talented seven out of tenners in business/casual taupe scrap about titles then claim how wounded they are, while accusing people of being racist and raking in millions in cash?

If Maté wants to know what a toxic culture actually is, he’s sitting right in front of it, enabling it, being an active participant.

Meghan has had everything paid for her throughout her entire life. First by her father, though she later lied about that, then by her husband Trevor, with whom she lived first and by whom she got her one role in Suits, as well as a divorce settlement, then by living with Corey, who was far more in demand workwise than she was, and then Harry, who, according to Bower, almost immediately paid for much of her and her mother's home expenses under the plea of "security!".

There's never been a time when she did not live off of someone else. That's why she's SO good at it.

Black women Megstans on Twitter are going nuts about Chris Rock attacking Meghan and - to a lesser degree Jada Smith. I'm beginning to think Meg's popularity with American black women derives from the fact black male celebrities (including Rock) most always date/marry white women. It's got to be galling and I can understand their anger about it. So when one token blackish woman who, if she didn't look white probably would have never dated Harry, marries a token 'Prince' like in a Disney cartoon, she becomes their standard bearer for empowering black women.

I think. It's really sad basically. Why do successful black men only seem to want a blonde? Why is this a thing?

Personally as an American who is always been in love with all things British, I initially found the soap opera of it all a lot of fun. When I really started hating Meghan was in summer 2020 when everyone was being cancelled and cracks of division seemed to form permanently through today. It was like she was pouring gasoline on a fire. You couldn't dare criticize her without penalty. Bottom line is that so many nasty, divisive people win regardless of how awful they are. I personally would say Meghan has won in terms of getting more than she could have ever financially dreamed of, but she's lost in the game of public opinion which is rare and satisfying to see. Everyone is turning on them, black, white, fat, thin, animated. It feels like change from the insanity is in the air. There is also the notion of squandered opportunity. I really had hoped she could have made it work as a proper royal and to see her toss such a golden opportunity to slog out back in Hollywood seems like a waste.

[quote]When I really started hating Meghan was in summer 2020 when everyone was being cancelled and cracks of division seemed to form permanently through today. It was like she was pouring gasoline on a fire. You couldn't dare criticize her without penalty.

Best post in the thread, R159. That atmosphere of not being able to criticize without being attacked reminds me of the post-9/11 era, when even questioning the Iraq war meant you hated America and loved terrorists and should probably be beaten to a pulp and jailed for life. Reminds me of this Robert Altman quote from back then:

[quote]And then I came back to New York after 9/11 to open “Gosford Park” and I got in a taxicab and the cab driver had on a turban that was made out of a flag. There were flags everywhere I looked. There were flags stenciled on the sidewalk. People were throwing up on them. And in one of these endless lines of one-liners that you go through at these premieres, I was asked, “How does it feel to be back in America?” And I said, “I think I’m gonna puke if I see another American flag.” Well, Ollie North got hold of that and then I was harassed and really put in a position I’d never been in in my life. I’d never felt that kind of hate from people who don’t know me and that I don’t know. I just was stunned by it. If you question anything, you’re a bad guy. And I just won’t accept that. So fuck ‘em all.

The irony of the "if you don't like Meghan Markle you're a piece of shit racist" crowd acting like it's those of us who DON'T like the Sussexes who are the Trumpies. You morons would scream that it was a racist's fault if Meghan came to your house and pissed on your furniture. You think you're on the side of right and good, but the real hate being spewed in these threads is coming from your side.

Haz claims William was charmed and moved by Meg offering him Oregano Oil for his cold. I highly doubt he was ever charmed by her but Haz needs to delude himself into believing he got the better wife. I think that's actually why Haz is so extra bitter now, he wanted the world (or at least The Daily Mail) to proclaim that he got the better, prettier, more popular, modern, chic and accomplished wife. And he didn't and he's pissed. He wanted to outdo William in some regard.

The part where he says William and Kate weren't brave enough to admit what huge Suits fans they were really speaks to the depths of his insanity. I also don't think William's nickname is Wilie.

Okay, so someone else on another forum came up with this:

What if a certain aging actress who'd lost her job made a deal with Satan, chuck Hollywood and marry a prince for real? Become royal, and automatically famous and showered with luxuries?

But of course, Satan always likes to turn twist those deals around, so the Prince turns out to be a stupid druggie loser, who doesn't have much money of his own. And being a royal is unbearable, you're famous but the press coverage is mostly negative, you hate being a royal and can't deal with not knowing what's under everyone's polite surface, and you don't even get a palace of your own. And the prince wants out, even though he doesn't have much money of his own, so you end up supporting HIM!

It sounds like H&M basically forced King Charles' hand regarding titles for their children. Although kudos to the Palace for stating that the decision as to Archie and Lilibet using Prince/Princess titles were always up to Harry and Meghan which discredits Meghan's claim Archie was going to be denied his princely title due to racism. On that same note, if the royals are so racist and Harry (as he has stated several times now) felt so burdened by being royal, why would you want your kids to have titles....oh right, money!

R218, Harry and Meghan can call their kids whatever they want (Michael Jackson called his son Prince), but officially Archie and Lilibet are neither HRH nor prince or princess. And those titles only have any meaning when used officially. If the monarchy officially calls them Master Archie Mountbatten-Windsor and Miss Lilibet Mountbatten-Windsor, then they are officially Master Archie Mountbatten-Windsor and Miss Lilibet Mountbatten-Windsor.

If (and that's a big If) Charles has said to Harry "of course my dear boy, if you want to call your beloved children prince and princess then go ahead. I'm afraid, however, that for official purposes we won't be able to do that, but I won't stop you from calling them prince and princess if that's what you wish" then that's simply humouring Harry. At the end of the day, for official purposes, they remain Master Archie and Miss Lilibet.

If you watch River on Youtube, he covered the topic of the titles yesterday.

Paraphrasing him - he (River) has always stated that the Sussex kids became Prince & Princess when KC3 became king. Those who have been following this tale all along will remember that Archie's title when he was born was supposed to be Harry's secondary title of "The Earl of Dumbarton". But the Sussex refused to use this title, claiming that it would expose him to bullying through the use of "Dumb". River refers to this episode as their playing Silly Buggers with the issue of titles. Add to that their statement that they wanted to raise their kids without titles, etc. This meant that if the BP website was updated to refer to the Sussex kids as Prince and Princess, that would have given Harry & Mrs Harry another opportunity to play "Silly Buggers". Not until the Sussex themselves chose to use those titles (in the recent announcement) was the website updated.

The only people who EVER said that Archie and the other kid would NOT get titles were the Harkles themselves, specifically Meghan in the Oprah interview when she was constructively accusing the Royals of being racist.

Before Meghan's statement there was never a question in anyone's mind that once the Queen died, Harry's children would become a Prince/Princess.

The Harkles literally made up a "problem" out of thin air in order to publicise that problem, get a reaction from the media race-baiting sector of "how dare that family!" and then use the made up "scandal" to bash the family and then collect money for doing so.

Harry thinks that, with Meghan at his side, he can be the new Diana - from the royal family but not of it, continuing a function that only a royal can do without performing royal duties and with a supposedly greater emotional and political dimension. All this while leading a "private", celebrity culture driven lifestyle. However much Diana's relationship with the royal family had broken down, she at least still had her trump card, namely William.

Oh, Harry feels those doubts or will soon enough, but it's not in the narcissistic mindset to feel bad about one's behavior or feel responsible for undesirable outcomes. Bad shit that happens is *always* the fault and responsibility of others. In this case, even if Harry followed her instructions to a tee, she would point out a minor wobble or manufacture (i.e lie) an imaginary error or scenarios that did not occur so the blame will reside with Harry, the royal family, or anyone but her.

He's already expecting her to support them both, and HAS to have noticed that she's producing millions where he bloody well expects billions. Who knows what will happen when it sinks in that they'll never have the bazillionaire's lifestyle they counted on, and really, Meg's best hope is that it never sinks in. I mean he's dumb and capable of completely denying reality, maybe he'll continue to believe that they're both insanely popular and bazillilonaires in waiting, and they don't have to come up with a Plan B.

But it's more likely that he'll blame her for failing to support him in the style in which he wishes to live, and she already has to be sick of his shit so she'll be out of there and fight back with accusations of abuse that may be at least partly true.

Made me remember one of his exes saying he was rough in bed. He must have to put on a real lovey-dovey act with Markle. By now, he should know if he does anything nasty to her, she'll trade off it for the rest of her life.

He's stupid, arrogant, entitled with Mummy issues, women issues, issues about being a spare. Thinks he's carrying out a "service" with all his whining and bitching.

Plus he looks like some kind of ape/gorilla in a lot of photos. If he wasn't born into the royal family, he'd be struggling to hold down a job stacking supermarket shelves. Or he'd be a drug addict robbing people's houses.

And Markle would be nothing without the education her father paid for, the first roles he got for her, not to mention bankrolling her lifestyle until she found Trevor to support her and get her the Suits role. The Marcus introduced her to Harry.

She is the best thing that will ever happen to William, one of the best things to happen to the British royal family this century and about as perfect for the role of future Queen as it gets.

Meghan is close to the exact opposite, an agent of chaos and destruction in her thick, damaged husband's life and in his wider family.

Yes. She failed/was too worried about failing to give it a real try, and then needed a good reason to give to herself for her failure. It couldn't be her fault, so it had to be theirs. So: racism. Even though neither Meghan, Harry, nor any of the trolls who pop into these threads to call everyone a racist with zero proof or explanations or demonstration as to how, specifically, anyone in the BRF ever treated Meghan in a racist manner, have EVER been able to back that up.

I think that Harry had wanted out of royal life for a long time, but was afraid to leave on his own and try to face life with nobody to tell him what to do. So he waited until he not only married, but married someone who was sure that she could monetize their mutual fame well enough to support them both in princely style!

I don't know if Meg actually wanted to leave at first, I can't imagine she liked royal life, but would have taken the half-in-half-out deal. But if she had to choose, well, I can't imagine how stressful royal life was for an American who didn't understand how things were done, didn't understand the backstabbing politics or the courtiers or the hierarchy within the family, or why she wasn't being showered with palaces and jewels. So when she had to choose, she probably genuinely wanted "out".

R259, I think that Harry never wanted to be out as a royal, he just didn’t want to do the work. And that was why he and Meghan proposed the half-in, half-out deal. They never chose to be “out.” They were told that was all they could have.

Oh, indeed, poor innocent Meghan, who spent years in acting, cutting off her family, and sending an engagement ring back by FedEx, knew nothing about backstabbing or how to be cutthroat. If she didn't understand how things were done, it was pretty obvious she had no intention of learning, understanding, or appreciating . Just witness her oh-so-charming mockery of having to curtsy to The Queen.

An American who has held most any kind of job certainly understands hierarchy and backstabbing or PITA coworkers, so R259 characterization of poor stressed out Megsy doesn't fly. It was her choice to take the job, even after the Queen urged her to consider keeping her acting career, such as it was, and she was given extensive training on what to expect. When Markle figures out how completely Harold manipulated her she gonna be pissed.

Meghan had no interest in staying in the UK. She had been miserable as a TV D lister who couldn't even get on Andy Cohen's show (and the unkindest cut of all: Cohen didn't even remember she'd tried). Meghan's sole motivating factor in life is revenge. When she saw how famous she could become by marrying dimwit Harry, her only idea was to go back to Hollywood to finally be on the movie A list and all those A listers who had ignored her would have to pay homage.

Meghan is the old lady in Durrenmatt's The Visit who marries a rich man and goes back to her home village where she was humiliated to wreak her revenge. Sadly, the only celebs in Hollywood she seems to have connections to are black people with a chip on their shoulders like her - Oprah, Tyler Perry. "TV people". Movie A listers seem to ignore her.

I'm of the belief that they both wanted to stay in the RF. The following likely played a role in their knee jerk reaction to transfer to a different high school where they thought they would be more popular and crowned King and Queen of the Prom.

Haz wanted the Daily Mail and the U.K. to proclaim he got the prettier, more popular, more talented, more loved by the public wife. He wanted to one up his brother and finally have something better than William. When that didn't happen, he spiraled out of control at yet again losing the "contest" with William. He's been consumed with blinding anger and spite ever since. He's now trying to win the wife "contest" in America since he couldn't win in the U.K. He spends his time making laughable accusations that the RF were jealous and threatened by his failed wife.

Meg also wanted to outdo everyone. She wanted to be the RF's SUPERSTAR and credited with "modernizing" the monarchy. Modernizing in her view meant changing all the rules of the monarchy to exalt and elevate her and her fifth in line husband. Modernizing also meant giving the monarchy a Hollywood makeover. She wanted the RF to be impressed by how magical she was. The RF was not amused and the public didn't embrace her as her mask slipped and her tawdry ways became apparent. She's been in a seething vengeful rage ever since.

In conclusion, they are both salty she didn't turn out to be Diana reincarnated.

Just to underscore how out of touch and imperceptive Harry is, he was crowing about Meghan's "performance" on their Australian tour when, by all accounts but theirs, it had some disastrous and embarrassing moments. And on top of that, around the time they were negotiating Megxit, he said William and Catherine were envious of Meghan for having done so well. IIRC he believes that drove the split of their offices rather than Meghan's mistreatment of staff. They're like the GOP: Every accusation is a confession.

This is a very good take, R270, substantiated by Spare. After all, Harry's biggest worry when introducing Meghan to Wills and Kate was that they would be so star struck (as avid Suits fans) that they were going to pester M for her autograph.

Bingo! Harry doesn't want to be king, he doesn't want to be a working royal, he doesn't want to deal with the press or the public. So in that respect he's very much better off leaving.

What he DOES want, and the desire radiates through his horrid book, is to be the center of his family's attention! He seethes every time his father, brother, and grandmother didn't make him and his feelings a top priority, he thinks they should have been keeping him company, listening to him whine, making the press vanish, giving him the best of everything (or at least giving him what Will has), and generally making his mother's death not have happened. He's let his fury at William show in the book, but held back against Charles, but he'll let loose someday. Maybe he'll hold back until Charles's will is read, but probably not.

Family Immigration

Family Based Immigration

A foreign citizen seeking to live permanently in the United States requires an immigrant visa (IV). To be eligible to apply for an IV, a foreign citizen must be sponsored by an immediate relative who is at least 21 years of age and is either a U.S. citizen or U.S. Lawful Permanent Resident (that is, a green-card holder).

There are two types of family-based immigrant visas:

Immediate Relative – these visas are based on a close family relationship with a U.S. citizen, such as a spouse, child or parent. The number of immigrants in these categories is not limited each fiscal year.

Family Preference – these visas are for specific, more distant, family relationships with a U.S. citizen and some specified relationships with a Lawful Permanent Resident (LPR). The number of immigrants in these categories is limited each fiscal year.

Keep in mind that U.S. citizens can file an immigrant visa petition for their:

• Spouse

• Son or daughter

• Parent

• Brother or sister

For a start, r300, investments made on Harry's behalf by his late mother were made decades ago when he was a child, so even if the value of his portfolio fell in 2022, it's still worth several millions more than in the 1990s, especially with all the accumulated dividends and interest. Then there's the fact that, unlike us average dweebs who dutifully follow the S&P500 with our fingers crossed, he probably has an active portfolio, so his portfolio managers can sell falling stocks and buy whatever's rising, while they also have access to a wider range of stocks and securities.

Add to that the fact that he owns some of the world's most extraordinary assets (just a ring owned by his mother would be invaluable), then he can borrow or get a mortgage on extremely favourable terms. Which he can then reinvest and make more from than the interest on the repayments.

That's just based on the millions he got from his mother. No doubt he got something from the Queen Mother and has received much financial support from his father over the years.

There's also the mere fact that he is Prince Harry, which gives him access to freebies and very wealthy circles. The rich Russian who lent them his villa in Canada and Tyler Perry, for example. He probably also gets all sorts of upgrades and complementary gifts, e.g. is offered the best rooms in hotels and tables at restaurants.

Then there's the money he has supposedly made for himself, e.g. the BetterUp fees and advances and royalties from Netflix and his book. Just as Prince Harry he can command bigger fees than most others, even if the amounts aren't as huge as the figures reported.

So, even if he's suffered a drop in his portfolio over the past year, he's probably barely noticed it and it's given his portfolio managers the opportunity to buy the dip.
