According to Omid Scobie, King Charles is the royal racist

Charles was apparently the racist referred to in the Oprah interview, That little cunt Markle has somehow communicated this to Scobie,who wrote it in the Dutch edition of his book Endgame. Due to concerns with libel laws, the Dutch are already pulling the book from bookstores.

It doesn’t seem like people buying Charles as a racist considering things like he walked that cunt down the aisle, got her a 35 million dollar wedding, etc etc.

I hope people don’t believe this about Charles and get furious instead at Meghan and Harry,

Oh, and they throw Princess Michael of Kent under the bus for good measure…..

Yeah. None of them are racist. Who would ever have thought that …

by Anonymousreply 2November 28, 2023 8:27 PM

Until the actual comments are made public no one cares.

Did Charles say "ugh, I hope the baby isn't as dark as Meghan, how awful would that be" or did he say " I wonder if the baby will be pale and ginger like Harry or dark like you Meghan!"

If it's the latter then that's a perfectly ordinary conversation to have, according to people in mixed race families I know.

Does wondering what a baby will look like make you a racist? Like will the kid be a redhead like Dad or be a cocoa color like Mom?.or be crosseyed like Great aunt Bessie? He didn’t say they’d drown it at birth if it came out black did he?

Wondering what the baby will look like before it arrives may just be innocent curiosity. Did he say "Lord, please don't let the baby be a darkie!" or similar? If not, this seems to be much ado about nothing. The family is new to mixed race marriages, and Charles is from an older generation. There is context here and he should be cut some slack, not judged by Gen Z woke imperialist standards.

Joy! Rapture! Yet one more thread to comment upon the latest goings-on of Mr. and Mrs. Harry Mountbatten-Windsor of Montecito, CA, USA

This book has nothing new to add to this soap opera. It rakes over old coals.

It's little surprise that Mrs. Harry Mountbatten-Windsor has a fragile ego and is ready to take offense at the slightest slight. She's an actress!

And as for how the child may look, I pray to God their children inherit her looks. Harry Mountbatten-Windsor and his relations are an inbred lot with long noses, Elvin ears, and horsey mouths.

Say what you will about her character, Meghan Markle is attractive (and her mother, too). Harry has that Saxe-Coburg Gotha nose, his father's tiny face, and Elvin ears.

Absolutely! I lived in London at the time. There was immense goodwill among the public and the press (even the tabloids) towards MM. She was seen as a breath of fresh air. American? Divorcee? Actress? Mixed race? How modern! How very Harry! She was welcomed with open arms by the British public, and obviously the Firm sensed the PR coup and would have made everything possible to make her insertion in the family as easy as possible. But she fucked it all up with her behaviour and antics, and that’s when the public and the press started to turn against her. Nothing to do with her race.

Meghan tying the baby’s skin color comment to title and/or police protection was truly bizarre. Harry has no shame, he knows exactly how titles work and his silence while she lobbed this bomb at his family must have made William and Charles furious.

I’m sure an awkward comment or question was made about the baby’s skin color, but If Harry had any sense, he would have kept that comment to himself. Why even tell Meghan? It would only hurt and upset her. Sometimes it’s kinder to keep quiet about something said about your partner.

Chris Rock made the definitive comment on this nonsense quite a while ago.

Ms. Harkle can fuck right off and shut her damn mouth. She's a narcissistic, over the hill, social climber of epic proportions. She was being let go from "Suits" because Patrick Whatsit (her "love" interest in the show) was leaving. She went to England hoping to land in a reality show there, "Wives and Girlfriends" of athletes or some foolishness.

She lucked into meeting and hooking the dumbest, most emotionally damaged prince in Christendom and she's played him like a fiddle ever since.

I wonder how long it will take him to get as fed up with not being respected and not getting his own way with Megan? He did eventually throw a huge tantrum and projectile vomit his grievances against his original family. He'll do the same with this California family before too long. I'd still vote for him having as much custody as possible. He's a whiny little bitch but she's a manipulative, lying, greedy fucking monster.

For most of the 20th century the monarchy's existence was justified as a respected unifying institution for the British people. Today's monarchy has become a disrespected divisive institution. It can no longer justify its existence. It was inevitable ,much the same happened to the Italian House of Savoy after WW II. The assumption that it "can't happen in our Britain" is the height of Royalist arrogant delusion. History is full "how quickly things change" examples. Elizabeth has only been dead for 14 months. Look how her heirs are judged by large swaths of their "subjects" .Rota puff polls not withstanding. If every time a gossipy book is published a 1000 year old institution is shaken to it's core well then whole edifice is rotten and ready to collapse. BRF is becoming more and more unpopular and irrelevant to modern Britain. The Windsors will go not with a bang but a whimper.

I have had a personal revelation that is probably only new to me. I was thinking about Harry’s choice of title for his memoir, “Spare”. Much of this continuing hubbub which has spilled over to and adopted by Meghan is just Harry’s long standing and apparently deeply rooted resentment over his birth order. He feels he has never been treated as well as William and everything becomes some major personal slight. Actually, such feelings are very common in families but here, it gets the world stage and attention.

by Anonymousreply 56November 29, 2023 2:38 AM

To me it's more akin to her researching Harry, manipulating his dumbness, weaknesses and jealousy of his brother. She's exploited and fed his resentments and isolated him. He's nearly 40, it's his own fucking fault he should have known better than to take up with a gold-digging C-list actress who had aged out of the untalented, "sexy" actress role. She had no other roles for which she was suited. She's a terrible actress and never bothered to work at it to try to get any better.

Let's get real here, the only reason the royal family allowed Meghan to marry in to the family (despite all the red flags) was because of the fact she's mixed race. It was a great PR move. As for King Charles being the alleged "racist" without context there's no grounds to assume he was being racist. Given that Meghan was the first person of color to marry into the most famous family on Earth, perhaps we was just only pondering what his grandchild might look like...as everyone does before a baby is born.

Oh honey, Harry looks like he's on the brink of suicide every time we see him while Megan's looking around for someone richer who can buy her a late in life career. Either one or both Harkles could stroke out and no one would miss them one bit. They've alienated all of both of their families, ghosted all their former friends and are circling the drain more and more with each poll.

Their purported children can be returned to the Props Department or given to parents who want to spend time with them and raise them. Who knows? Their new parents may even take them to Invictus Games, or to the polo fields or to spend time with grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins. That would be so much more suitable than locking them away on East Valley Rd. with only nannies to care for them.

Megan's in LA pretty much full-time now. Harry's at the San Ysidro Ranch when she's around Montecito or at the San Vicente in LA himself although he never shares space with his wife. They live quite separately now. He's caught up in his rabid paranoia and she's caught up in her rabid ambition. They've been crashing and burning ever since they left "for Canada" in that stupid scheme they had to blackmail the late Queen and the rest of the royal family to get their own way. It didn't work and it will never work, serves them right.

R65 The royal family didn't "allow" Meghan to marry Harry. Harry fell in love with Meghan and he told the Queen he was going to marry her. This is what every "normal" man would do in modern times. Not be a gutless twit like Charlie and let the real love of his life slip away. Not hang around for a decade like waity Katy hoping Willy would shite or get off the pot. Harry got married to who he wanted when he wanted. Charlie had zero veto power. They had no other choice but to accept Harry's fait accompli. It was in spite of Meghan's race not because of it. When the Sussexes proved to be stars on their African and Australian tours that is when the Windsors freaked. That is when the Sussexes had to go. They were not permitted to outshine Mr Potato Head and Mumbles Middleton much less Charlie and his Side-Piece. The BRF had a real opportunity to bring their obsolete uninspiring monarchy into the 21st century with the Sussexes. Predictably due to petty jealousy they cocked it up and here they are. As real as it gets.

I mean in reality, why else do people actually visit Britain if not for the pomp and circumstance that surrounds everything there concerning the Monarchy? They are suffering as it is after their exit from the EU. I don't know if they can withstand another loss to how they define themselves as a people. Without the monarchy it just becomes another dirty major city with cultural aspects you can find anywhere else without having to travel all the way to England for them. It's the draw of the Monarchy and the dukedoms that make it different.

[quote] Meghan said "concerns about the baby's skin color" not "curiosity" and it being in tandem with the titles and security being taken away, she didn't know what else it could be except racism.

And Harry made clear in the Oprah interview that Meghan wasn’t even present when the comment was made. She says they were “concerns”. Are we just expected to take her word for it?

She strongly implied that the comments/concerns were racist, then Harry went out of his way (in his book promo interviews) to say that Meghan had never claimed that anyone in the Royal Family was racist. He was aghast at the very thought, and (as per usual) blamed the press.

The Harkles are a mess, and Harry has sufficient brains to be a narcissist but nothing else.

Love, R98, no one was talking shit. I made a valid point. You're the one hung up on hyperbole, caught up from the ringing in your bell tower of self-importance.

My point being is that there are other great European countries with historically prominent monarchies that have fallen, or monarchies that still exist but have shrunk in size as to not be a massive drain on the tax payers. The Royal Family of Spain's average budget is close to $9 million a year as opposed to Britain's Royal family whose years grant is close to a whopping $109 million. Other countries like Spain, France and Italy (all of which have/had) monarchies, have been able to thrive without relying on outdated ideas of historical interest because they invested in what makes them interesting - food, culture, architecture, geography. Maybe if England hadn't relied so heavily on their Royal family being their main cultural attraction, had they been more successful separating their identity from the monarchy, they would be further down the road to ridding themselves of this cancer that has become a sideshow. But now to remove it would mean bleeding out because most people travel there because of the monarchy.

The royal family of Britain is worth 28 BILLION dollars - all of which came from hoarding the nation's treasures and siphoning off the top of the county's GDB for centuries. Are they really worth 28 Billion to the people of England? That is increasingly becoming the question. I am sure they are starting to look around and wonder who they could have been or what they could be if they didn't have to feed into this legacy that is becoming more of an embarrassment than anything else - a relic which serves no other purpose than a signifier and tourist attraction.

R101, where do you source the figure of 28 Billion?

If you are including things like the Crown jewels, royal peculiars (e.g. Westminster Abbey), the Palace of Westminster, Windsor Castle, the Royal Collection, Crown land, etc., then you should know that those things are held in trust for the nation and can never be sold.

Anyone who knows anything about the UK knows there is no indication whatever that the monarchy will end in the next 20 years or that its primary function is as a tourist attraction.

If British people posted repeatedly about the imminent replacement of the electoral college (a much less defensible institution than the British monarchy),for example, on the basis of no evidence, you might get a bit annoyed too.

And I am just curious, what other role does the British Royal Family serve other than tourism and as a unifying SYMBOL of the British People around the world? Their work, their duties, are only representing Britain to the world, performing royal duties such as showing face, no? They are like a drug the Brits just can't ween themselves off of. Like any addict, that can't imagine who they would be without a substance in their life, a desperate fear they would be nothing, because they have let it go on too long.

They have no legislative power. They are more of an idea of the fabric of a nation, much like a George Washington or an Abe Lincoln to the American people except they are living, breathing fallible people we see fuck up and suck resources from a nation. An idea that's been off track for some time now and that was really only held together by a queen who recently passed. Now you have pedophiles and fame whores and temper tantrum-its trying to hold it all together. It'll take some years to shake off a legacy as great as the one Queen like Elizabeth left. And only time will tell if the current family has the potential to pull the family up out of gossip rags before the citizenry lose complete faith in it.

[quote] An idea that's been off track for some time now and that was really only held together by a queen who recently passed.

Similar views were expressed when Queen Victoria died and was replaced by Edward VII (with his mistresses, naughty trips to Paris, gluttony, and love for booze and gambling). He became a massively popular and respected monarch.

Victoria herself went through extraordinary periods of unpopularity during her decades in seclusion, mourning her beloved Albert, but she only had to show her face from the window of a carriage and attend the occasional public church service and people rallied to her.

People feared that poor, stammering, shy George VI would be the death of the institution. He led it through an existential crisis, a World War, and died almost universally beloved even by Britain’s post-war socialists.

Commentators criticised Her Late Majesty Elizabeth II as dull, overly posh, unfeeling and unimaginative at various points in her reign, yet when she died people queued up in their hundreds of thousands to bow to her coffin,

Even before Victoria, William IV was viewed as a virtual madman, entirely unsuited to the throne. He’s probably the only man in history to have been accused of stealing a Royal Navy warship for a joyride. And yet he handed a secure throne on to his niece.

No serious politician in the UK would put republicanism to a test in an election, because they know it would lose. European monarchies collapse when a country loses a war or when its people are on the brink of starvation. They are not brought to their knees by minor members who decide to pitch a fit.

With the internet the world has shrunk and it is very easy to see moment by moment how the rest of the world is living, what you do and don't have to put up with. The monarchy is already shrinking at the hands of King Charles - titles being taken away (Not just Harry's family), limiting the use of titles. I think he himself sees the writing on the wall and is attempting to course correct. Maybe it won't be at the hands of the people, it maybe the Monarchy itself realizing that a smaller portion of something is better than a larger portion of nothing.

Even Queen Elizabeth II faced far greater criticism and scrutiny than King Charles by a fairly rabid press which spent the 1980s and 1990s ripping the family apart in every way it could imagine. Elizabeth, like her ancestors, kept her chin up and carried on and waited for the people to come round, and they did. Charles will follow her example, just as she followed her father’s.

[quote]The king plans to reduce the monarchy to a team of just seven key members, all senior working royals. There could be several reasons for this, including the royal family's reputation. The royal family faced an estimated $44.5 million shortfall due to the impact of the pandemic. However, the royals have "no intention of asking for extra funding," the Queen's financial officer Sir Michael Stevens said in a statement at the time. Plans are yet to be officially confirmed. If the reports are true, the British monarchy wouldn't be the first to restructure in this way. King Charles's 'slimmed down' monarchy could wind up as a 'BURNT-OUT' monarchy - with no one left to help Prince George when he takes over on the throne. The Windsors are in greater jeopardy than ever.

And a president is not a symbol. A president is not just a figurehead. The president is employed by the United States of America to work for the people. The Royal Family is a symbol with no working legislative power other than to represent the country and funnel money they receive from tax payers back to charities they head and funding their lifestyle. They do tours, they head charities, they make appearances, it's a lot of busy work for 100 million dollars a year. And it's propped up by Britains NEED to have a monarchy, absolutely nothing else. The loss of the Royal Family would be a blow to the identity of the country, a country that has built their entire identity around a Monarchy that touches every aspect of British culture. And that is completely their fault when in fact other major first world countries have successfully left their Royal Families in the past or have minimized their influence realistic to the value they add to the country.

R122. The royal family receive no salary. They do cost a fair bit of money, but I hope you don’t imagine the cost of the US presidency is solely 400 000 a year. Presidential inaugurations usually cost around 100 million alone and that event us purely ceremonial (just like royal events) and unnecessary to the functioning of government. Many of the costs of the royal family incurs go to the public buildings they use and the ceremonies they host, which will continue whether they are performed by a king or an elected president. Cost savings are pretty low on the list of arguments for having an elected head of state.

The passage you cite gives no evidence at all that the family is on the way out. The changes suggested in that passage (not yet implemented) would be tiny compared to the scaling back of the institution that occurred under Charles’ recent predecessors. I assume you in your wisdom would have read those developments as indicative of the institution’s imminent collapse.

Face it—you have no clue how the monarchy or the British constitution operates and no knowledge of its history. However, because it’s covered by People magazine, entertainment programs, and morning shows in the US you think you know all about it. And you watch those shows because you find the institution interesting, which is even more drug addicted for an American than for a Brit.

I genuinely wonder what Harry thinks he has to gain out of this Scobie book. It will enrage William (which he may regard as reward enough), but it will destroy any rapprochement with his father. And after Charles is dead, and the family fortune has passed (tax-free) into the hands of King William, he will truly learn that he is not only Spare, but entirely amputated from his birth family.

Kate and William can afford to smile and wave and wait for this current storm to pass. They have a future, while the Harkles can’t even persuade anyone to make a second period of their podcast.

That is not exactly true and that's now history is measured. The end of the Roman Republic and the start of the Empire with Julius Ceasar was in 59 BC, but there is was no real Roman Empire until 85 years later with Augustus as the first real Emperor. Yet history views them back to back. So my prediction is that King Charles will be known as the last King of England, the beginning of the end with his two living successors being shadows of what it is now until it's gone within their lifetimes. Actually the death of Queen Elizabeth will mark the end in history. It's not a far cry.

In terms of strategy, the Harkles are really hopeless: if they had named Charles and Kate as racists at the time of the Oprah interview, it would have caused an absolute furore. However, by waiting so long, they are releasing this poisonous info at a time when they have already been shown to be melodramatic liars.

This story will make headlines for a few days, but most people have no faith in the judgment of the Harkles or the veracity of their claims. By the end of the week, the media will move on.

Actually r142, it is absolutely only the concern of the British people to judge how relevant and costly the British royal family is. It is absolutely of no relevance to anyone else. The only other countries that can have an opinion on the British monarch as their head of state are former British colonies, who are free to dump the British monarch if they wish, although, aside from Barbados, I don't see many rushing to do that.

As it happens, the majority of British people deem the monarchy to be relevant and value for money.

SurvingAngel at R183 I converted the amount INTO dollars so that the Americans on this board would have a visceral reaction to the total amount the Royal Family costs.

I don't believe Meghan and Harry regarding the ill treatment they supposedly received at the hands of the RF. Either Meghan expected to be allowed to pursue becoming Diana 2, and was denied, resulting in this years long psychotic tantrum, or expected to be coddled in respect to the media attention of marrying Harry and realized the RF doesn't really deign to respond to much of the tabloid press and their many stories. Or maybe both things are true. Either way, what is their true endgame? Do they keep this going until they get a grovelling apology? Do they want more power, too, as a price for letting bygones be bygones? It's unclear to me why they can't let this go and move forward with their own plans at this stage. Unless, of course, keeping it going is a permanent part of their future plans, because it garners attention and possibly money. In which case I have to believe it is Meghan pulling the strings. She wouldn't be much without Harry and this narrative she has established.

President Bola Tinubu on Thursday met King Charles III of England in Dubai, the United Arab Emirates, the venue of the COP28 Climate Summit.

Both leaders had arrived in the city to join the conference where leaders from over 198 countries are expected to participate.

Tinubu announced the meeting on his X account, describing the British monarch as a passionate climate advocate.

He stated, “I had a productive meeting with His Majesty, King Charles III of England who is also the Head of the Commonwealth, and a passionate climate advocate.

“The meeting was a significant step in strengthening the partnership between Nigeria and the United Kingdom, and I am optimistic about the positive impact our joint efforts will have on our planet’s future as we look forward to setting an equitable global standard for environmental stewardship at COP28.”

Thursday’s meeting became President Tinubu’s first engagement since he arrived Dubai in the early hours of the day.

I didn't read halfwit Harry's Spare, so someone correct me if I'm wrong or confirm what I recall is correct, but I recall reading a recap where he said after the first time they had sex Meg said, and I'm paraphrasing, "that wasn't the performance of a spare, that was the performance of an heir" and then she whipped out her Diary and proceeded to write down her assessment of his performance. They are both so sick and damaged beyond repair.

R289's comment reminded me of this from Scobie's unwittingly amusing interview with the Times. Notice he doesn't deny the rumor outright? She ain't getting nutin' from the spare. And calling a hotel attached to the Santa Barbara Polo Club or the San Vicente Bungalows "janky" will not earn Scobie any friends anywhere.

Amazing how defensive he gets on behalf of people he claims to have no contact with or association.

[QUOTE]What about the rumour being spread by a friend of the royal family that the duke is so miserable that he regularly sleeps in a local hotel? “I know a lot of people that know them, that are in their world, or their space, and I’ve just never come across anything of the sort,” he says, pointing out that the couple have a “massive guesthouse” at their disposal. “If you wanted to spend a night away, you don’t have to go as far as some janky hotel in Montecito town centre.” (“Janky” is the opposite of swanky.)

"People THAT know them, THAT are..." along with the double negative he employed to attempt to say that he never used Royal names in the English manuscript... I'm tempted to check the book out of the library just to keep a running tally of all the grammatical errors. He claimed to have also edited the book in the interview. What kind of a publisher allows that? Has Harper Collins had financial problems lately?

They fumbled the only real working royals they had out of envy & spite, typical BRF. The only thing Harry & Meghan did was work hard & brought more eyeballs & relevancy to that no talent family.

King Charles dies at 96.

The year is 2045.

Queen Catherine and King William are on the throne in their early 60s.

Charles has decided to end the monarchy. There will be reduced roles for the grandchildren. The main palace becomes a complete museum for tourists.

Charlotte, Louis and George are in their 20s. They live high society lives and are relieved they will not have to continue the madness.

Harry and Megs, in their early 60s as well, are amicably divorced best friends. Their children in their mid 20s, secretly sometimes wish they had more of a role in the BRF and knew their family.

Have sources indicated roughly when it will be eliminated and what will replace it? Will the other countries where he is head of state have already abolished the monarchy or will that come later. Will the House of Lords remain?

If they are waiting on the monarchy being abolished in the Commonwealth realms (whoever “they” are) it could take a while. It gets very complicated in the the former dominions such as Canada, Australia and NZ. In Australia it would require a referendum to the constitution which requires a majority in each state and a majority of states and territories. This is a country which couldn’t be persuaded to recognise the indigenous population in a referendum last month. Australians are easily spooked and as an Australian I find that fucking infuriating.

I think that the situation is even more complicated in Canada.

Oh the irony if Charles or William ends up as King of Scotland, Wales, Canada, New Zealand and the Caribbean realms but not of England! Where will they live?

Try reading for comprehension before you start calling other people idiots, R320. You are replying to two different posters.

If you have issues with what would happen if the role of British head of state were killed off, talk to to R316, who was merely hypothesising (is that right, R316?).

If you have issues with the last ties between the British and Australian legal systems being removed can I refer you to the Australia Act (1986)?

But there are lots of big words in that document and your probably still looking up “hypothesising”a so how about you just fuck right off? The attitudes of people like you are why a whole continent hates you. Go look for someone else to patronise - that might be a challenge where I suspect that you are from.

Despite what people say, there is not enough interest in the monarchy in the US to drive the success of the book on US sales alone.

Isn't it more important for the Sussexes as they try to establish themselves as some sort of presence in the U.S., whatever it may be? They've all but written off the U.K., so it's somewhat pointless for them there.

by Anonymousreply 329December 6, 2023 6:01 PM

In that case, r329, they should write - or get someone to write on their behalf - a book about themselves, their dreams, their plans, all the great stuff they apparently intend to do. Instead, they - seeing as they are behind the Scobie book - churn out another book on ridiculous British royal tittle tattle, mostly made up or hyperbolically exaggerated at that.

R328, is the interest in the royal family in the US about the institution, its history, its major figures, its charitable and social efforts, its cultural significance in the UK and other regions, etc.? Or does the interest lie in silly gossip?

Did Harry libel himself? (I mean do we need to ask that question). Harry's narrative has long been that his family and the late-Queen's private secretary were the ones that cut off his security. However, new letters to the Home Office have come to light showing that Sir Edward Young (the Queen's private secretary) expressed the Queen's and then Prince Charles' wish that H&M should have some degree of security.
