    I knew from the beginning the lady he married was toxic...she is probably extremely abusive behind closed doors and abusers love to isolate their victims. Mark my words she will leave once she can comfortably do it and bail out with an absurd amount of money and she will scapegoat everything on the fact she is half black and that she's the real victim...just watch I guarantee it.

      The Dutch East India companies where looting my India and I want my money from them. They have not ever employed me or gave me any sort of wages or reimbursements for my India. The officials now need to investigate and recover my monies as this is a highly racist organisation and they are noted as international criminals I have no affiliation to them whatsoever therefor there kind cannot converse with me or have any of my power even if after knowing this they created ISKON the failed Caucasian Hindu temple full of drugees and importers of spy agents this is another private money extortion company FYI the offshoot of the east India company. India must now prepare the paperwork to officially sue this company format of divested Indian Hindu Money. 🤘🏽🕉

            One happy ending.....Buckingham palace declared that they won't be paying £7 million for Harry's bodyguards.
            3000 old people died each year died from cold because they can't pay gas bill....
            I rather use half of that menu to pay to save life, than to pay body guards that are not even in UK. So stupid.

              Could this separation from the royalty might be a Megan desire to go back to Acting and more to it....? just a thought

                Well first of all, this is a massively outdated and out of touch family that need to be fully removed, all of them.

                This is to me the start of the end of this family. The World does not need such vulgarity anymore and we need to be concentrating on much more pressing issues, which we all know about.

                      What next for Royal Family?
                      They'll go on as they usually do coz H and Murky are never going to take the throne. They're just troublemakers.
                      It should be what next for H and Megain.

                        Meghan Markle wants to be a celebrity not a royal. However, she always dreamed of being a princess and she was obsessed with Princess Diana as a child. She thought that perusing Harry would elevate her celebrity status at the same time as fulfilling her fantasy. However!!! She did not consider the boring restrictions that this role carries with it. Typically (Hollywood) celebrities get bored and move on to the next fad. Harry is just a lap dog and obsessed. Its easy and convenient to use Diana's death as an excuse to seek best of both worlds. If the press or public life killed Diana and that is the reason. STOP acting like celebrities and STOP taking private jets to Elton John's Yacht. Ffs..

                          Time will tell..It seems Harry had taken a nose dive since being with Meghan.Maybe I am wrong.I just hope William and Harry can make amends and be close again..that really is so sad.I can understand Harry wanting to step back , that is very understandable

                                It continues doing what its always done without the toxic soap opera drama queen and her toy boy lap dog. Who needs the drama, there are far more important and interesting things to focus on than Mrs Mountbatten Windsor emulating the Kardishans.......

                                        MM recorded her Disney voiceover, during 6 week Canadian “reflect” retreat. How much cash did the duo get for the shoeless eco speech to corporate elites (on private jets) weeks earlier?

                                        You know what Diana is Dead. They have gotten away with murder. Prince Henry is not King. Only the English make up these ridiculous rigid rules for Monarchy. Especially since they don't have any power. Just ludicrous. Title? That comes by birth. They want to make crusty Charles and duchess divorcee monarch ridiculous. There is too much publicity and attention for such unimportance. Bull Charles does nothing at all and he makes a huge amount of money and he benefits. Part of crown so what. So they live where they live. Again Diana died at their call and the Prince and Duchess of Sussex have every right not to have that occur and to live in peace. There exist other Monarchies and there is no pomp and not as much garbage. HRM Elizabeth II Has very little actual power but people are people Royal and not of Royal all need to live in peace. I think England must decide what they want. Because teaditiinal Royal Monarchy would not tolerate or be controlling a King and Queen it's the other way. Henry VIII would have just cut your head of and set the rule. That would have been the end of it. This is not our world. But...that is Monarchy. The Queen says it. A law the end. England wants both? Ridiculous. Can't have it that way. What they did to Edward VIII was mostly bully and tell the king what to do. Nonsense. He should not have abdicated. He merely should have Told Them how it was and ordered his own wedding. There s no question about that it was not politics it was his reakm and he had the right . Subjects don't reign over a King. So decide already but the order of killing those that don't fit what is undefined in the first place and in the second place two faced much of the time should stop.

                                        Like seriously, there is a reason why the public hates Megan. Not because of her Background or colour or the previous occupations. It’s really just about her CHARACTER. She is pony. The whole thing. She really seems to play the perfect victim while getting away with the best deals and what EXACTLY what she wants.

                                                    They need to be taken as commoners. She is using title, Queen, tax payers money not even liking UK. Stop her from using UK royalty for her gain, fame.. Meghan is an embarrassment to royalty from other nations. She wants to change UK monarchy. SHE IS NOT A VICTIM. She was a wannabe movie start at 38. NEVER FAMOUS. A worldly divorcee doing things for publicity "Hollywood style" Using political tools to get her way. Discarding her entire family. Isolating Harry from royal family. Her ex was a producer after not needed broke up by email. I will not judge motives. Only what I see. When she met H she was not naive. Older with world experience seeking media attention for fame manipulated harry using his mother experiences . SHE IS NOTHING LIKE Diana. She was naive, a virgin, a teen, good background, not looking for fame only wanted to be loved. Husband rejected her loving another, no one to guide her or protect her. Alone and betrayed by many. The world loved her. loved in Britain for her loyalty and simplicity. She tried to do her duty. She respected Queen. She loved her boys deeply preparing them to embraced their identity. Meghan and Diana are.night and day. I hope the Queen stops her from using UK for her gain. She is a radical woman. Even her ideology is not good for England.

All that is just for the press and interested people but the reality is that they just run away before UK gets in his really worse days. The royal family’s hard times.

Harry has clearly wanted to be independent for sometime. He's been unhappy because of the royal family, his brother and the british media. Meghan should connect with her famous allies in the States. They are already blaming her for this grown man choices.She should now Gather up her support. Nice job supporting her Harry. He's married and is clearly supporting his wife. The press has been hideous with awful racist undertones. You would have to be blind not to see the racism. It was constantly in the tabloids. Now they are presuming that harry doesn't have his own mind. He's been an extremely strong willed and head strong young man his entire life. Do not make him out to be weak because of their united decision. Do not make her into the pawn use as a subject for blame.

Has this stupidity really gone this far, that anyone can falsely accuse anyone of racism and/or sexism, and get away with it. If she did that she should, without delay, be prosecuted for defamation.

                                                                                  I'm accused of racism and, oh yes, jealousy, often because I make comments on some videos. There's not a racist, or sexist, bone in my body. Yet sharing what you see is the cause/effect/truth/lie of something, or whatever, you get these vacuous, simple minded twits, who live in celebrity land in there minds, in adoration of their idols, accusing me of being something I'm not.

                                                                                  ALSO, a lot of the accusations of racism actually come from coloured people. I've never seen a coloured person subjected to racism that wasn't pure ignorant bullying from degenerate souls who need to be better than somebody. Or neo nazi clubs. And that was only in the movies. In real life, I have not seen or heard it myself personally. I went to school with lots of coloured people. I am aware it does happen, bullies use anything obvious to cause hurt to someone.

                                                                                  Everybody and anybody is bullied; if I lived in a black neighbourhood, the ignorant twit minority there would be calling me a "stinking white .............." That's RACISM too by the way.

                                                                                  Somebody needs to stop this lunacy, and stop the press from perpetuating it. It is used by them to sensationalise news items, that perpetuates the LIE.
                                                                                  People who accuse others of racism should be made to prove it, or pay defamation costs.
                                                                                  SICK AND TIRED OF HEARING IT, AND TO ASSOCIATE IT WITH THE ROYAL FAMILY IS TOTALLY DISGUSTING.
