Hi, Beth! Maybe this (googled)  definition is an American one? Definitely not a British one!!

:P

 

Yes.  Exactly. It's a name, and it also means your butt for us.  I had no idea of the British meaning until SP enlightened me.  It's like when you learn what "Ich bin heis/kalt" is in German and go OMG - gotta be careful. :lol:

Nottingham Cottage is the smaller abode and it's where Harry lived as a bachelor.  The queen gave them Frogmore because it's bigger and that's the place they reovated.  It will remain as their British home.

They will be paying back the renovation costs and start paying rent to the Queen.

It belongs to the Queen, so they will be tenants.

I said before that the Queen wouldn't renig on her gift. They will pay rent to keep the tabloids quiet about this one very insignificant issue. It does sit on royal property and it will still be their main residence.

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry will be making a lot of changes now that they've stepped down as senior members of the royal family: They've given up their royal titles, they're most likely moving to Canada, they're no longer receiving a royal allowance, and they now have to pay rent on their Frogmore Cottage home.

As you may recall, back when Meg and Harry got married in 2018, Queen Elizabeth gifted Meghan and Harry Frogmore Cottage, which is on the royal's Windsor Estate. But don't get too jealous that Meg and Harry got a literal home as a gift—the place was reportedly "dilapidated." Which also helps explain why Meg and Harry used a cool $3 million of taxpayer money to renovate and refurbish the house, reportedly doing very extra things like using vegan paint in the nursery and constructing a custom kitchen.

So because it's a royal property, things get a little sticky now the Harry and Meghan don't want to be royals. And since they have no intention of giving up the home, Meghan and Harry have agreed to pay back the public for their pricey renovations. In a statement about the step-down agreement, the palace said, "The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have shared their wish to repay Sovereign Grant expenditure for the refurbishment of Frogmore Cottage, which will remain their UK family home."

And not only that, but the couple will now have to pay rent on the house. Royal expert Katie Nicoll tells Vanity Fair, "They will keep the residence, a wedding gift from the Queen; however they will pay rent on the property."

No word yet on how much they're paying in rent, but considering that Prince Harry is worth $40 million, Meghan is worth around $7, and Prince Charles is still helping support them financially, I have a feeling they'll be just fine!

It appears the proponents of Common Sense finally have a hero in the form of Laurence Fox:

 

 

Meghan was treated extremely well when she first appeared on the British scene, a glamorous American exotic, probably way better than Sarah Ferguson (white redhead to my knowledge). When the Asian lady began accusing Brits of being racist he lost his temper, accusing her in turn of being racist. He had the courage of mentioning the Manchester Grooming Scandal - for the ignorant that's white kids in poor towns being raped by Muslim males. Finally that is entering the mainstream conversation.

I just find it amusing that when she appeared the commentators were "she`s only after him for the title,wealth and all that goes along with it".

Now she`s stepped away the same commentators are saying "how can she step away from the title,wealth and all that goes with it".

Yep - she couldn‘t win.  I think her biggest problem is that she marches to her own drum.  Being demure and standing by your man seem to be prerequisites for the royal jobs.  Independent thinking does not seem to be highly prized.  And the British tabloids have a monopoly like no other on viciousness.

That is true, but to drop the "race" card every single time you are criticized demeans real racism. 

 

When you marry into that crazy family you have to be aware that there are certain "rules" which go with that job, for it is a job. You get security, pots of cash, free housing and transport for supporting the British Crown. In turn you have to represent that Crown around the world. Plant a few trees, don't say anything too upsetting, and create international goodwill. She just blew a huge opportunity.

Read it.  Sorry, but that wasn't Meghan dropping the race card.  Harry expressed his concern about Meghan, and clearly for good reason.  In addition, J2 said that she dropped the "race" card at every criticism, and I find that hardly true.

From the statement -

Some of this has been very public - the smear on the front page of a national newspaper; the racial undertones of comment pieces; and the outright sexism and racism of social media trolls and web article comments.

So it could be argued that she herself didn't do that, but Harry did. He is right to protect his wife from any unfair criticism, but to use race is imho wrong. however she did identify herself with a certain line of thinking, which put her at odds with the institution she married into. Preventing Harry from shooting with William on Boxing Day when that was the only day they had privately together was a way to further her own "cause" (the actual rights and wrongs of hunting and shooting aside).

Just because she loves the guy doesn't mean she isn't entitled to own her own opinions and/or to influence his.  Few of us marry into any family and agree with 100% of what it does.
