Is Prince Harry revolting?

232 posts in this topic

So.. looking at the various News outlets, it seems that the rift between Meghan and Queenie  ( m not you BMuurphy)

 

Harryy seems to me head over heels with Meghan and doesnt really like the Royal train is driving them... 

 

 

Should "Queenie" cut them off from any financial support?   Lets face it she has enough money to do what they want as long as they stop doing steaks at breakfast...

 

What do you guys, gals and not really sure what you are, think about the whole polarva?

I think that it's all bullshit and that we don't have a clue what is going on other than what the gutter press is telling us. They seem happy. Let them be.

 

The world would be a better place if people would stop believing everything that they read on the internet.

 

Having said that, most of the vitriol toward Meghan appears to be driven by pure racism. How dare Harry marry out of his "class" and race?

Dickie Arbiter mentioned some interesting points:

 

“Former Buckingham Palace press officer Dickie Arbiter suggested the decision showed Prince Harry's "heart ruling his head".

Asked how being a "part-time" member of the Royal Family might work, Mr Arbiter said he did not know.

"If they're going to be based in the UK, it means they are going to be doing a lot of flying [with] a big carbon footprint," he said, adding that this may "raise eyebrows".

 

He also questioned how the couple would become financially independent.

"I mean, Harry is not a poor man, but to settle yourself in two different continents, to raise a family, to continue to do your work - how's the work going to be funded?

 

"How is their security going to be funded?

"Because they're still going to have to have security - who's going to have to pay for this? Where's the security coming from? Is the Metropolitan Police going to be providing it and if so whether there's going to be any contribution in covering the security cost?

 

Mr Arbiter also suggested questions would be raised over why £2.4m of taxpayer's money was spent on renovating the couple's home, Frogmore Cottage in Windsor, if they will now be living elsewhere for some of the year."

Well, The Family does not occupy a space most of us would want to inhabit, and the Queen understands that better than most, after her father was thrust into top spot when his brother abdicated. 

 

Their every move is prescribed by politics and tradition, and this is not advantageous for someone as far from the throne as Harry - he and his wife would have to really like that world to want to stay in it.

 

No doubt the palace is miffed that talks were not held by the various parties first, but that would have led to endless debate over the finer points of the possibilities. This way, it will all eventually get sorted but the Sussexes get to start living their lives straight away.

 

It looks as though earning their own money is a priority for them - I don't see that being a problem - in these days of 'influencers' et al. they are surely highly marketable. They will get public funding and security for public duties, and not for private. They are willing to continue their work as Royals when required.

 

I think it is a typical press overreaction to nothing much - he is way down the line of Royals now William has a bushel of kids, and there is no need for another whole family to faff about full time 'representing' either the Family or the UK. 

 

The Queen has lived through much more awkward situations, and this really is small fry. Given that one major thing which pisses anti-royalists off is money squandered by the extended family, if this is a model which works, and if all parties carry it off elegantly, then it will end up as a Good Thing. 

 

edit - it is a rather interesting header....

I'm reminded of a sequence from Pogo, the Walt Kelly comic strip which tackled everything.
A group has surrounded the palace.
'We is revolting,' calls out a member of the crowd.
'Never mind, your King loves you anyways,' responds the monarch.

 

As for what I think of Harry & Meghan's plans, I think they're grown-ups and can do what they like with their lives, so long as they don't do it in the streets and frighten the horses.

This Irish/Scottish/British (typical mixed American) ginger thinks Harry is absolutely adorable, loves that he marches to his own drum, is so impressed that he has been honest about his mental health issues, and thinks it’s awesome that he went for love and married a biracial American. I think his Mama is up there smiling away.

Well, good luck to them. The only thing I'm sorry about is that the previously good relationship between the brothers has suffered.

That's ripped off from the story about Marie Antoinette" Madam the peasants are revolting". "Yes I know but you'll get used to them." She answered. 

 

As for being free, no sorry not if you marry into the Windsors. There is a vast gap between being a royal and a celebrity which immature Meghan failed spectacularly to grasp. Whoever advised Harry that getting tangled up with her was a "good thing" is no longer a friend. As for who he picked, she is actually very beautiful but as far as I'm concerned her personality is dreadful. To come to the UK and forbid her husband from shooting with his brother on Boxing Day for example to prove some PC point about animal rights was particularly annoying. Shooting is a cruel sport but the point was that it was Harry's only day alone with his brother every year. Then she without consent of the royals used the royal name to promote her cookbook for the Grenfell Fire victims, again usurping royal influence without clearing it with "Top house". Those are some of the mistakes she made.

I'm not convinced. I think that is just more sensational press because we truly don't know how much they are in contact or see each other.

Does the fact that their charities have split apart convince you?

You haven't truly revolted until you've dumped tea into Boston Harbor.  

 

That was for independence from the British Crown, which many argue still doesn't exist.

Is Prince Harry revolting?

 

 

Not at all, out of all the royals, I find him to be one of the most attractive.

The media has certainly been revolting towards the couple with utterly vile public comments left unmoderated. Not to mention the Markle father and half sister media debacle.  Not really surprising that they weren't invited to the wedding.

 

Harry's life has been scarred by his mother's treatment by the media...her death has been blamed on it too. He's been open about mental health issues so now, since the birth of their child, it's not surprising that they wish to remove themselves from the British royal spotlight. 

 

I'm sure that even with ex-royal status, they will successfully contribute towards various charitable causes.

He's adorable, but I am of course partial to gingers.  We stick together.  :D
