    The Royal family concept is such a joke. Totally irrelevant to the direction of a nation. Just a rathole tradition. A remnant kept alive by the peasant society. Dumping them as an institution can only benefit Great Britain.

      Meghan will bring down Harry. She used him to get what she wanted. Story book wedding, her face on all news media, but she couldn't act like a princess. In time, what attracted her to Harry will be gone and so will he. She only loves herself.

        And she better be careful. She may end up like Princess Diana.

            What did she want? Omg Megan is full of drama watching her behavior she wants needs to be center of attention the way she is all over Harry she's a freak. She will get tired of Harry and leave him or mistreat him so bad he'll leave. It will not end well.

              Before Meghan, Harry wasn’t mistreated. Meghan Markle is an accomplished woman to be sure. The British public were so happy to have her but the British media have been mean, unfair and racist. I like her a lot. However she navigated this latest move poorly and it reflects her lack of family values. Why allow the disagreement between brothers to fester? Harry loves William’s kids and Archie would have a built in support system with cousins. Why not talk privately with family to sort out their unhappiness? Making a secret website and IG announcement is something Archie will hear about someday. This is Meghan’s pride working. Meghan has no relationship with her own father or half siblings. Harry has a large and close relationship with his family. So the onus is on her. Before Meghan, Harry wouldn’t have treated his grandmother or family this way. She is clearly running the show and for a smart woman, she’s acting very clueless. Being an only child doesn’t help. She’s not familiar with large and often messy family dynamics. Add royal duty to that and she crumbled.

                The "tone in the press" began when Meghan started acting like a Hollywood Diva and forcing employees to quit. Her JEALOUSY of Kate is also stunningly obvious.

                        "Bad blood" - or did she realize that the royal family isn't one to be played - or played with.

                          These reporters need to just report the facts not there opinion!! I could care less what your opinions are. You get people so worked up by saying things that you think not that are fact based. Kate has done a wonderful job at every level. Foreign visits, having her children, setting up parks etc... Meghan has done None of these things willing. She wants to be treated like Kate but she doesn’t want to do the job. That is what people are having a difficult time with.

                            After the baby came, the baby was the bargaining chip. He won’t leave Markle in Canada with baby alone.

                                      What did the Queen think that Harry and Meghan would put up with all this trash press and tabloids about them. I am going to say it BS. Thanks to the toxic family and toxic press and tabloids saying things that wasn't true about Meghan and Harry. THE TOXIC FAMILY DID IT TO THEMSELVES for all of this

                                          It's not negative press. People should not waste their time discussing press when the real issue was something else. It's all about money and power. An experienced men-user knew exactly what she would get and where she would reach if she targeted the royal family. Harry was her first victim in the royal family.

                                                Everybody just needs to leave them alone. So they are stepping down who is to say that it is for good. They could take some time off . They need to so that people will just leave them alone.

                                                          The Royal family left Harry and Meghan to be left out in the cold for the public and the press to savagely to apartI. If they had stepped up to protect them this probably would not have happened.

I hope you read my other note and understand that not only me but most Brits want Andrew brought to justice and racism stopped everywhere but as I say you've just committed an act of racism against 66,000,000 people. Amazing!

I hope, and most British people do, that Andrew will be investigated fairly by the FBI or whatever is the appropriate organization in the US and that the result of that investigation will be that he will either be held to account if he is guilty ( and the optics look bad on that). Whatever he should not have been mixing with Epstein but then neither should Clinton, Gates or Trump who all knew that he was dubious to put it nicely ) or that he will be cleared if he is innocent. For myself - and all the Brits I know - I want what ever is the truth to come to the fore so that Justice is done. I presume you are not British and may never have lived in Britain. To make such a sweeping statement - "The English are predominantly racist etc" is exactly what prejudice is! You are actually being a racist yourself in that statement! I am told that Britain is possibly the most racially diverse nation in the world which is one of its great assets! Along with a lot of other people I was thrilled when Harry became engaged to Meghan. I was a Suits fan and thought her pretty. The British monarchy needs updating and since Harry was popular and not restricted by the same responsibilities as William, most of us thought they could do some real good. Most Brits loved was exactly that she was bi-racial as that Meghan's ethnicity in a way reflected the UK's incredibly diverse cultural mix. We thought they could do some real good. I was sufficiently a fan that, while I don't normally follow the royals, I sat in a dark, stuffy bar in Spain on a beautiful day to watch the wedding! I would like to see it resolve for's hard for the Brits who have funded their lifestyle, wedding, security, travel and the refurb of Frogmore to see ourselves described as racist and toxic, especially when most of us welcomed them so warmly. Obviously I know nothing about you but I am very aware of the dangers of taking the media at face value. That's how white supremacy movement grew in the US. What racism exists in the UK is largely aimed against Muslims in my experience which I also saw in the US and the UK prior to 2nd Iraq War. We have to not only discourage racism but also ensure that we are not inciting it through false claims. I am sure you mean well but by branding the English as racist you have performed an act of racism!

In particular we thought MM being bi-racial was fantastic. That it reflected the fabulous diversity of the UK population. Of course there is racism everywhere but the wedding was welcomed and celebrated in a quite spectacular way. It was things that happened later that upset the Brits.

Andrew however should get some hard time. Here they made their own mistake for taking the spotlight with dropping the bomb.

Is the Queen using Harry and Meghan to distract the press from focusing on Prince Andrew's scandal with underage girls.
