Prince Harry & Meghan Markle's Popularity at the Invictus Games Is Shocking the British Tabloids

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s trip to Düsseldorf, Germany for the Invictus Games has been a resounding success, but not everyone is thrilled by that idea. The British tabloids, who have made it their job to criticize the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, seem downright shocked by their popularity as the German press gushes over their presence in their country.

The Daily Mail couldn’t believe their eyes when they noted that “only positive headlines are being used to describe the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.” They were confounded that “there have yet to be negative comments about their public appearances” and why should there be? Harry and Meghan have been gracious hosts, cheering athletes from all over the world who are inspiring everyone with their athletic talents and mental fortitude. There really isn’t anything to criticize.

A reporter for Germany’s Bild newspaper shared with The Daily Mail, “I think people are very interested to see how they are together and their dynamics as a couple. They are very popular here. You only have to see how hundreds of people waited in the market square outside the town hall to try and see them. It was the same the previous year when they came to start the countdown to the games.”

The royal drama doesn’t define Prince Harry and Meghan the way the British media seems to think it does. Nobody has been perfect in the family feud, but people can see the goodwill the couple is delivering — and the citizens of Germany are reacting to their positive energy.

Another reporter explained that while they are aware of the royal rift, there is plenty of love to go around for the Sussexes as well as Prince William and Kate Middleton. “People are fascinated with Harry and his family, but they all know about Meghan,” they explained. “There are two camps here in Germany – team Harry and Meghan and Team Kate and William.

It has been interesting seeing them together. Now they are here, people see that they are happy.” Harry and Meghan are happy, but perhaps it’s the British press that wants to see them miserable.

r15 What a surprise the tactic of trying to create a strong association between being critical of Harry and Meghan with being a far right Trumpster is deployed again! The two things are not synomous and ironically by deploying this strategy out are using a Trumpian type tactic. Harry's real attitude to charity work was revealed in his interview with Fake Greta when he revealed charity is a great way of making lots of money for HIMSELF. His attitude to the military and veterans didn't look good when he misses a fundraiser or event for British veterans in order to go to the lion King premiere to pimp to the head of Disney for a voice over role for Meghan. The Fake Greta interview and the lion King event are inconvenient facts but facts they are.

Invictus must have gone even worse for the Harkles that we saw for ourselves. Hazbeen did have on his "I'm so unhappy" face as soon as Mummymeggsybaby showed up.

She was dressed like trash, as always. A playsuit, a mismatched blazer and flip-flops for a ceremonial occasion honoring wounded veterans from Britain and their cycling win? Any hint of royalty has fled in horror from the Harkles and who can blame it?

Invictus Games needs to find itself a new patron. These Harkle losers really bring the Games down to a crass, self-aggrandizing, photo op seeking level.

It's no wonder Heart of Invictus was such a disaster, he tried to make it into the Poor Widdle Hazbeen show. His wife is horrendous and widely disliked, we're not even sure that "his children" even exist and if they do exist did they come out of a test tube? He hates his family and attacks them at every turn, he's never even met his awful wife's family except his mother-in-law the druggie/ex-con.

Meghan Markle turned up at Uvalde with a camera crew to capture her placing flowers. Her father had had a stroke that took away his ability to talk around the same time. She chose the soulless photo OP over visiting her potentially-dying father.

Meghan Markle visited South Africa, where a woman is killed every three hours and poverty is rampant, in a professional capacity as a newly-minted Senior Royal, and instead of discussing her observations and insights, told a British reporter, "No one has asked me if I'm okay."

Meghan Markle compared meeting the Queen of England for the first time, who is also her husband's beloved grandmother, to going to a tacky Medieval Times restaurant. On film. Knowing at the time that The Queen was dying of bone cancer.

There are hundreds more observations just like this.

Sugars have to invent fake rumors of infidelity to try to knock William and Catherine off of their pedestals.

[quote] Meghan Markle, Prince Harry, Oprah and More Attend Kevin Costner's Santa Barbara Fundraiser

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry were among the big names who joined Kevin Costner at a One805 charity fundraiser in Santa Barbara, California, on Friday.

The actor hosted the One805LIVE! Fall 2023 fundraiser — which was held in support of the first responder community and headlined by band Maroon 5 — at his 1.4-acre beachfront estate, days after he and estranged wife Christine reached a settlement in their divorce.

Christine, 49, was not seen in photos of the event, though her name is listed alongside Kevin's as hosts of the fundraiser on the charity's website, which detailed that the event would "take place on the oceanside estate of Kevin and Christine Costner."

One805 provides financial aid and mental health support to first responders, and in a video posted by the charity on Instagram, Kevin, who is also an ambassador of One805, appeared onstage with the Duke and Duchess of Sussex as they presented him with an award at the fundraiser.

In the clip, Meghan, 42, clapped as Harry, 39, walked over to Kevin to hand him the award and shook his hand.

“Good afternoon everyone,” the actor then said to the crowd of attendees. “Now, I get asked a lot by my friends who have no manners, ‘Kev, what’s this place cost? What’s it worth?’ And I can just simply tell you on a day, like today, it’s worth every penny.”

“That you’ll be here to celebrate people you’ll never maybe meet,” the Yellowstone star continued. “The ones who are the first to rush in. And it's a place that I’ve had a lot of good luck in my life and I’ve tried to not throw up a wall around it, so thank you for coming.”

Oprah Winfrey was also in attendance at the One805 fundraiser. The former talk show host was seen in a video reposted by the charity, filmed by an attendee, onstage linking arms with first responder Sam Dudley and his service dog Rhonda as she introduced him.

While onstage, Winfrey, 69, praised One805 for their commitment in supporting the mental wellbeing of first responders as she shared the charity has counseled “over 700 responders” and “preventing 24 suicides” this year through its services.

Another clip showed Maroon 5 lead singer Adam Levine singing the band’s classic track “This Love” onstage as the crowd joined in.

At R74, part of that £200,000 was a £5,000 Cartier love bracelet. IMO, that bracelet is OK, but it's so basic. So many women have that bracelet. She was also reportedly wearing a $62,000 Lorraine Schwartz pinky ring made with 'diamonds gifted from the Middle East' as well as a $2,800 1972 tennis pinky ring from Shiffon and Co.

I can't tell which pinky ring this is, but I'll post the DM photo downthread.

I think the square-ish one in the beer photo is the one with "a diamond from the Middle East" in it. I don't know what the tennis ring is, sounds like a full eternity band and that's nothing special.

The Cartier bracelet that she constantly wears was a gift to her from her ex-husband. The one she fed-exed her rings back to when she dumped him. She's such a caring humanitarian.

Hmm, you're right, a "tennis" ring would probably have diamonds on the band. The ring in the photo has a simple band. It's hard to see the ring, but I find it hard to believe it cost $62,000.

Me too, R118, it's a simple ring, simple setting - big stone. Are they factoring in the value of the stone even though it was a gift? They must be, otherwise it's impossible that anyone would charge that much for that ring.

Or maybe not, jewelry is ridiculously overpriced as it is so..

The Mail has lots of pictures of the Costner event, which I won’t link because the powers that be will call me nasty names.

She’s starting to look wizened, I thought. Is that ‘Ozempic face’? I wonder if she’ll get plastic surgery to lift up those accordion folds at her smile line.

She looks older than 42, and that tweed poncho does her no favours. It strikes me as something a much older woman would wear.

Well, isn’t that harsh. Maybe I deserve to be called nasty names!

R142 is correct, and it's why Harry expects Meg to do all the work of monetizing that public interest. He's providing the public interest, he's done his part!

I expect their marriage has been about him expecting her to provide enough money for a bazillionaire's lifestyle, while doing nothing himself, but feeling free to criticize or veto her methods. It's almost enough to make me feel a tiny bit of sympathy for her.

Oh hell no, R143, she's a raging fucking bitch and an abusive boss.

She had members of her staff, including long-time royal staff, in TEARS and shaking with fear.

I don't give a fuck how lazy the Douche is, her behavior is unacceptable and intolerable from anyone, let alone from a grifting former yacht-whore who doesn't know how to dress properly. The Douche brought millions to this marriage. He brought Diana's inheritance. He brought the Queen Mum's inheritance (don't pretend he didn't get one, he did), Prince Philip's inheritance (or not), millions from his father now the King and so on. His wretched book sold I(not as much as they pretend but it sold). His wretched reality show posted up good numbers. Heart of Invictus was a failure but he did get paid for it. Better Up has failed - but he did bring in money for it. The Invictus Games themselves were a mixed bag this time and the Douche and Douchess did nothing to boost those Games. He was paid an appearance fee, I don't think she was and Invictus refused to bankroll another $200,000 ill-fitting wardrobe for her to wear wrinkled in her staged photo-ops.

Her "The Bench" was a huge failure. Achetypes was a huge failure.Pearl never even started production, it was another big failure. Her merching wasn't doing well enough so now she's merching cheaper clothes, we'll see how it goes. She's not bringing in the money, it's still all his money and none of hers.

She's spending more on WME PR plants and "leaks" than she's taking in for their family. They don't represent the Douche, only the Douchess. They're in the process of blaming the Douche for everything and thowing him under any bus they can find.

A lot of people think they don't have kids. I think there are two small children in the Douche and Douchess' house. I have no idea whether they are biologically related to the people calling themselves their parents. Whether they actually even know the Douche and Douchess personally is difficult to say.

So what I'm hearing now is that after the microphone incident at the Kevin Costner event, to cover her faux pas, Meghan walked over to the table and picked up one of the awards. Handing it to Harry, who then presented it to Costner.

But, as the story is now being related, the award to Costner was supposed to be presented by one of the First Responders. This makes sense since the benefit was for First Responders. And it would be appropriate to have one of their members thank KC with an award.

I thought it was odd when I heard that the Sussex pair were presenting an award to KC at KC's own event. Made no sense.

Could it really be true that Harry & his wife appropriated the moment from one of the First Responders?

Taking Costner's first event post-ugly-split and trying to make it about themselves was a rather large and memorable mistake. Oprah was right there and she never pulled any of that sort of crap.

"Interesting analysis of Harry's wife having a narcissist 404 moment. The clip in question starts at 7:05."

That isn't an authentic NPD moment, that is behavior you'd see from anyone who is trying to act like they're having a good time. Everyone does this, they go out because they're expected to and not because they want to, and everyone who's ever gone to the wedding of a relative or out for drinks with the office has had that moment of breaking the smiles to grimace and bite the lip, because they want to be out of there and can't keep faking it much longer. So Meg went to the games because she's expected to, she's there to promote her brand and not because she actually likes watching wounded veterans do sports, and maybe she's sick to death of Harry himself, so she lets the strain show for a quick moment.

So while proper narcissists may do this, I'm not taking that clip as proof of her having NPD, and I think the guy who made the video doesn't understand that. He's a narcissist himself, and as such, he may be great at understanding how narcissists behave.... but maybe not as good at understanding regular non-narcissist behavior. And grimacing because you're sick of pretending to have a good time IS regular non-narcissist behavior.

On top of the pretty obvious NPD, Meghan is just damn awkward interacting with humans. The attempt to snatch the microphone is the latest in a long line embarrassing behavior in social situations.

The USO Christmas singalong with other "VIPs" seemingly avoiding her, the attempt to snatch a polo player's prize away when she celebrated with Nacho's team as if she had played (only to be pushed to the back), snapping on camera at a reporter who looked over her shoulder, engulfing an awards presenter in an unanticipated (and probably unwanted) hug as she was dropping into a curtsy, refusing to hand mourners' flowers to an attendant as pre-arranged during the pre-funeral walkabout and losing her composure on camera, asking a nursing home resident if the woman had heard about her pregnancy only to be told "yes, we get newspapers here, too." Imagine getting visited by a royal who makes it all about her.

And this is all *public* behavior. She doesn't read or get social cues and situations at all and comes off looking bad. Quite the handicap in Hollywood or any business. A skilled narc would have been able to charm and schmooze in the situations described above.

So I'm inclined to think she isn't a full-blown Narcissist, just an asshole.

Harry is the one I suspect of having a Cluster B personality disorder, his book revealed him to be such a mess. But I'm not sure about that either, and don't have a good guess about *which* personality disorder he might have on top of his low IQ.
