Duchess Meghan has predictably banned Harry from visiting his sick father, oh no!

HRH The Duke Of Sussex Prince Harry and HRH The Duchess of Sussex Meghan attends The Commonwealth Da...

Did you know that the Duchess of Sussex is responsible for Prince Charles catching the coronavirus? Did you know that she laughed like an American all the way back to Canada, knowing she had left a coronatrap for the senior royals? Did you know that the Duchess is currently flat-out REFUSING to allow poor Harry to speak to his father? Did you also know that Duchess Villainess has banned dishrag Harry from ever seeing his poor coronapapa ever again? It’s all true, and you’ve just gotten a glimpse of the story pitches at the Daily Mail this week. Here’s the first of what I imagine will be dozens of stories about how Prince Charles’ coronavirus infection is all Meghan’s fault or something.

Meghan Markle has forbidden Prince Harry from traveling, including to return to the UK to see his sick father Prince Charles, a source exclusively told DailyMail.com. Prince Charles, 71, tested positive for coronavirus on Tuesday and is in self-isolation on the Balmoral estate in Scotland with his wife Camilla, representatives for the royal said in a statement.

The insider said the Duchess of Sussex told Harry that ‘under no circumstances, is she okay with him traveling anywhere right now.’ The source added: ‘Meghan said Harry’s been in touch with his dad… Of course, he’s frustrated. She said they both are frustrated because they are doers and want to do so much more to help.’

Harry last saw his father earlier this month, publicly seen together at the annual Commonwealth Service at Westminster Abbey in London on March 9.

The insider also revealed Meghan told her inner circle that she is looking into fostering a black Labrador named Cole in order to help ease the strain on local animal shelters and rescue groups, and urged her friends to do the same.

[From The Daily Mail]

The dog-foster thing might read as a non-sequitur given the start of the article, but the purpose of it is to draw the comparison: Meghan has more compassion for a mangy animal than her father-in-law. Meghan BANNED Harry from traveling… for reasons! I doubt Harry could even find a flight right now, and even if he could, I doubt it would be recommended by any doctor or healthcare worker. In any case, I bet Harry and Meghan had a civilized discussion about what could be done and they both decided that staying in touch with Charles via phone/FaceTime would be the best decision for the moment. Also: I wonder if anyone is going to say a peep about how Villainess Kate has banned William from visiting his father? Because I assume that William has no plans to visit Charles, right?

    Unnecessary travel is being discouraged. Self quarantine and shelter in place is being encouraged. Why would they go ‘visit’ Charles? Even if they still lived in the UK they wouldn’t go to see him because they would be putting themselves and others at risk.

    It’s incredible to me that you predicted they’d use this (Charles contracting COVID) to smear/blame Meghan and the very next day this story popped up. Good thing they made the decision to leave royal life and the UK. What a nasty bunch!

    • Tessa says:

      Charles would not want to get his grandson Archie sick. No way would he want Harry and Meghan to come and potentially spread the virus to LIttle Archie.

      • Nahema says:

        We aren’t even allowed to visit relatives or friends so William & Harry wouldn’t be allowed to visit him. This is such a stupid story.

      • Maggie says:

        Say what you will about Chaz but it’s well known that he absolutely loves his grandchildren. There’s no way he’d risk getting Archie sick.

    • Agree Heather ….And don’t you just love that side-eye snark that the “foster” dog is black. They always get their snarky little racist BS in there. (Hell, the RR is still pissed that it doesn’t know the name of their second dog much less knowing whether Meghan — not Harry but just Meghan — is fostering a dog.) I don’t believe a word of anything coming out of the RR about Harry and Meghan. I think ALL of these stories since the Sussexes jettisoned Britain are 💯 RR “what if” make believe and their ‘sources or friends of’ are either BS from KP or just each other sitting around over a pint making it up as they drink.

      • Anonymous says:

        They also lurk and use nutters theories as “sources”.

      • Noodle says:

        @JA, I side-eyed the “black dog” detail as well. I wasn’t sure if I was being overly sensitive, or if it really was that racist as seen by others. No, it was that racist. 100%. Angry sigh.

      • LindaS says:

        Daughter is a vet assistant. Labs are referred to as yellow, chocolate, black and even a rare red where she works. I know there is a lot of racism but my daughters vet clinic refers to them by their color.

      • Olenna says:

        @Noodle, I agree it’s racist regardless of the biracial hack who wrote it. She made her point clearly with “Cole” black. That chick is so lost.

      • Becks1 says:

        @LindaS – yes, labs are referred to by color (we have a yellow lab, my parents have a black lab) but its the inclusion of that detail in this particular story that is kind of raising eyebrows. they could have just said “dog” or even just Labrador. Calling a dog a lab/Labrador or even a retriever isn’t wrong.

      • CuriousCole says:

        Labs are referred to by their color, for example: I grew up with a chocolate lab. I actually appreciated the article noting color for once because black dogs (and black cats) are least likely to be adopted out and are euthanized at much higher rates, compared to any other color. If it inspires people to seek out a darker furbaby, then good. The rest of the Fail’s article is still trash though.

      • Racism Island says:

        @Oleanna. Yes on the racist ‘Cole’ reference. Just in case there was any doubt. It’s like when relentlessly British show Doctor Who had companion Clara teach at a very diverse school and called that school ‘Coal Hill’. Fuck these mayo racists and their tragic handmaidens.

    • Abby says:

      Agree with all of this. Why on earth would anyone go visit someone with the coronavirus?? Especially if it involves significant air travel. Like, no. Not a good idea.

      • Kristina says:

        +1 I haven’t been anywhere since early March, because of early school spring break for my kids, then school canceled/zoo/museums, and now we’re in a formal “shelter in place.” And yet still, my aunts asked me not to do my weekly visit to my 96yo grandma, because she is just so fragile, even though I bring her food (she is being cared for other ways now). Visits are a bit scary, not to mention both travel and traveling to a person who has the virus!

  2. Theresa says:

    I’m greatly amused that you accurately predicted the article word for word yesterday. The Fail is nothing if not predictable

  3. Lara says:

    I mean isn’t it obvious she wants the whole royal family to get it apart from Harry and then if the worst happens she will be QUEEN. (Sarcasm alert just in case….. she’s already a queen)

    • Elizabeth says:

      Oh, yeah, there’s an article about that on Blind Gossip.

      • Kebbie says:

        Blind Gossip has really lost the plot. I mean, they’ve always written fiction, but that MAGA loving weirdo can’t stand Meghan.

      • Nocturne says:

        Kebbie, it really has. Most often Blind Gossip would write about something that people were already guessing at or that gossip rags already knew about and were waiting for the next news cycle to publish, but reading articles about Meghan made me realise how unhinged the site is. It also made me call into question everything else they write. Gossip sites like that are never going to be a bastion of credibility but I at least viewed their posts as having some element of truth to them. I don’t think that any more.

      • Solange says:

        I suspect BG was sold to either the Sun or Daily Mail a year or two ago. The previous editor, Ace, had a totally different (non-MAGA) personality.

      • Deering24 says:

        Yeah,, BG had a singularly demented piece couple months back declaring that Meghan was going to have to beg Trump to cover the family’s security expenses if/when she and Harry moved to LA.

      • Natters5 says:

        A few years ago I had a story about a celebrity told to me by a close friend. I wrote to BG about it but they wanted more specifics that I didn’t have access to. Two years later I was just happening to read BG and they ran with my story, still about the same celebrity but they changed a lot of the facts proving to me that they are full of s**t.

      • Elizabeth says:

        They’ve also got a blind that she keeps joking about the movie King Ralph, in which the entire RF is wiped out in an accident and an American played by John Goodman becomes the king.

  4. Sofia says:

    Yet another attempt to blame Meghan. Surprised they haven’t said that Meghan caused the virus yet

    The last thing a COVID patient above the age of 70 needs is visitors. And even if they did go they would be dragged for endangering Charles and breaking the rules the PM has said.

    Damned if they do, damned if they don’t.

    • Ali says:

      People are already saying Meghan gave it to Charles. People are crazy.

    • Als Em says:

      There is an actual headline in the Express – ‘Meghan Markle Coronavirus -…’

      So they are already blaming her in some way.

      It’s really sickening.

    • Bella DuPont says:

      Most of the British media are complete bunny boilers by nature. They get weirdly personal and will go to really bizarre lengths to “get at” the object of their interest. I bet you most of them would watch Fatal Attraction and genuinely not be able to tell you anything Glenn Close’s character did wrong as they would make the exact same choices.

    • Camilla can’t be in same room with him in same house, but sure, let’s blame Meghan for refusing to allow Harry to fly over and hold his hand. QUESTION: Given how many royal family members are living in Britain at moment —- How many royals does it take to hold Prince Charles hand while he recovers? ANSWER: Just the one currently living on another continent! Are the people reading this rubbish really that stupid?

      • Tessa says:

        Camilla is probably needing to stay put she also can’t see her children and grandchildren now. I see such vitriol against Meghan now with the usual name calling.

    • Diplomanatee says:

      The DM has a headline about their patient zero being an IT guy from Sussex… if you know anything about SEO you just know anyone who looks for “coronavirus” “sussex” and even “sussexit” will find something *facepalm*

      TBF all publicity agencies do this, and as a little throwback, when news first broke out of Harry and Meghan dating, lots of well-written articles included phrases like “Harry rumored to be dating Meghan, who is actively engaged in initiatives such as bla bla”. Again, if anyone had looked for “Harry” “Meghan” “engaged” they would have found that article.

  5. Becks1 says:

    i saw these stories start to float about on twitter and I cant even. its not just the mail either – a couple of these rags are running with this! I blocked a lot of these reporters on twitter so cant see the reaction to these stories, but they’re absolutely bonkers at this point. The hatred and obsession some of these RRs have for Meghan is very real and disturbing.

    And I know people are going to say “its just for clicks” but there is something personal to it as well.

    • Em says:

      Def. personal.
      I mean, she’s American, divorced, and worst of all biracial. How dare she, like, breathe and stuff!

      • Yoyo says:

        Divorce is not uncommon in England, three of the Queen’s children are, two of them are on their second marriage.
        So it leaves being black and not licking their boot straps.

      • Not only are three of them divorced but they are all divorced for cheating. So not a lot of high moral fiber there. It amazes me that they can tear down Meghan for simply being a divorcee while giving ALL three of the messy divorces of the Queen’s children a moral pass.

    • Brit says:

      Becks, they’re angry because Meghan and Harry are suing them but they’re also angry because they don’t have control over them and can’t make them tap dance to their tunes. Harry and Meghan won’t give them access like they wanted or still wants. They refuse to pimp out their son for good coverage and rightfully keep him away from the public glare and their newspapers. They use their Instagram to give their own updates, therefore controlling their own narrative. Meghan and Harry also has control now over who can come to their events and that means an even bigger American media, who has been mostly fair, in their coverage will likely get the best spots and dibs first. They’ve never been through anything like this before. Having people fight them every step of the way and not backing down. They’re traumatized.

      • ABritGuest says:

        Excellent points Brit. You’ve nailed it. As well as the sexism, misogyny, classism (that other married-ins also faced), xenophobia& racism- the lost money making opportunities, lack of access and control is why it’s very personal for some of these royal reporters& experts.

        The right wing hack who made that tweet is being ridiculed online& some people are saying they respect them for leaving. I suspect she’s happy with that attention though. A lot of people use Meghan bashing for self promotion

      • A Guest says:

        This particular writer can dish it out but she can’t take it. She’s locked her Twitter and IG since people started pushing back.

        Own it honey! If you are going to show the world that you are an ignorant moron who would write or say anything for a paycheck, show it PROUDLY

      • Becks1 says:

        @Brit -completely agree with your points, but this also started before the lawsuits etc. Its not just about the lack of control over H&M. They’ve disliked Meghan from the beginning.

      • Anonymous says:

        Brit nailed it.

        Tabloids thought biracial Meghan would be grateful and Hollywood Meghan happy to talk. Instead all they got was estranged relatives, paid for lies, and former networking contacts claiming BFF friendships. They don’t understand why the old ways of doing things only brought lawsuits instead of access.

        It’s why the anger is deep-seated and personnel. They want what they can’t have and don’t understand why proven methods have failed them. The guillable believing they really do have Sussex inside sources doesn’t heal the wound knowing they actually don’t.

      • Sunshine says:

        +100% What Brit said.

      • yinyang says:

        I think westerners are taught from a young age to believe in oneself and have confidence, I think the Brits think confidence should only be reserved for aristocracy, the monarchy/commoner mentality is ingrained in them.

    • Erinn says:

      It’s definitely both. They have had a huge grudge going from the start for the reasons Em listed. But as much as they hate her, they LOOOOVE how much money they’re making from her.

      Now, I’m sure Meghan has had a conversation with Harry where they’ve discussed how neither of them should be going places. That’s sensible. I’ve had that conversation with my husband too. We’re not allowed gatherings of more than 5 people. I ACTUALLY had to talk some sense into him this morning because he’s off work due to the virus risk and a lack of work. He was feeling guilty because a lot of company’s haven’t done anything to stop working around here. Out of a huge company of plumbers and electricians only 4 of them have been laid off and they’re starting to feel guilty because in their eyes nothing is really happening around here.

      The problem is – there’s a LOT happening. And my husband has been coughing from allergies non-stop – his lungs are already irritated. I have pre-existing conditions. But because you have a bunch of macho morons working, the rest of the guys start to feel like the odd ones out. Long story short – he’s sitting on the couch, and not working. And if Meghan HAD to veto something in a time like this (and I don’t particularly think she had to, though) I don’t blame her one bit.

      • Nic919 says:

        Is he able apply for EI or that other benefit announced today? I know it doesn’t make up for it all, but sometimes having some money come in doesn’t make the time off as bad.

      • Andrea says:

        It is mainly Americans who are taught about confidence. As an American I have lived in Canada 8 years and been accused by friends of being arrogant, when I never had any of my American friends state that to me ever. Confidence doesn’t seem to be in their vocabulary, you are supposed to be humble and reserved. This is in Toronto btw. No one seems happy for one’s accomplishments or love happiness either, there always seems to be an air of bitterness and envy.

      • Erinn says:

        He was able to apply for regular EI – he called up the line and they walked him through everything – so he should be seeing some money coming in in the next little while.

    • notasugarhere says:

      It is definitely personal. The RRs want Harry to rush to Charles and be forced to stay in the UK indefinitely because of travel restriction. Anything they can do to try separate Harry from his real family – Meghan and Archie.

      • Tessa says:

        I remember Meghan critics who wanted the wedding not to happen, urged Meghan to leave and go to her father and “postpone”. I guess hoping she would never return to the UK.

    • Beach Dreams says:

      It’s absolutely personal. Remember that many of these RRs have had a number of direct interactions with many of the senior royals over the years. Simple conversations, little group meetings/parties…these people know that it’s part of the ‘game’ but they also feel like they actually know the royals (and Harry’s talked about this issue before). Was it Arthur Edwards or some other loser who whined about Harry not having a chat with them over a drink after he got with Meghan? I believe he’s the same one who essentially threatened Meghan in a Sun article and said that she needs to start talking to them or else they’d ramp up the smears. There’s also Becky English who waxed nostalgic about how Harry once asked her about her sick child…and yet felt no compunction about contributing to the hatred towards Meghan.

      Basically a lot of these RRs are too emotionally involved. Some of them are in it for clicks/engagement and drama (Wootton and Ship imo), some of them are just straight up entitled assholes (Palmer, D. Arbiter for instance), and then you have the Becky English, Arthur Edwards types who are a little too emotionally invested in the narratives they create and in the royals who are most certainly NOT their friends, as much as they would like to believe otherwise. When they don’t get what they want out of this strange ‘relationship’ with the royal family, they become malicious and manipulative.

      • windyriver says:

        Arthur Edwards. I first saw his comments about no more friendly pub chats with Harry in the NYT, said like he had no clue why Harry wasn’t acting the same way (let’s try, because all of you keep trashing his wife for $10, Art), Pretty sure it was first included in an article where several RR were quoted mouthing off shortly before Archie’s birth, when it became known H&M weren’t going to follow the birth “protocol”.

  6. Anna says:

    Not that the British tabloids are ever reasonable, but what a bizarre angle to go with. If my mom or dad had Coronavirus, no way in hell would they let me or my husband visit them and get exposed ourselves. And we don’t even have a baby like Megan and Harry do! I can’t imagine Charles would even WANT them to come visit him and likely get infected. They have their baby to think about.

    Just another excuse for the tabloids to rile up their base about Megan.

    • BayTampaBay says:

      I have a good friend in Kentucky whose mother in the hospital due to testing positive for COVID-19. The hospital will not let her or her adult children visit!

      @EditorofDaily Fail and @PiersMorgan – Face Time and Skying are the same whether you are in England, Canada, or on the moon!

      • Tessa says:

        I have friends who will only communicate with their grown children by telecommunication . They live nearby and have to leave packages on the porch. They are in the “at risk”category. No way would they go in to the home face to face.

  7. Flying fish says:

    William and Kate are Just plotting…

  8. JanetDR says:

    So weird, since even uninfected elders are only visiting through closed windows! Can you imagine the outcry if they did? Ugh.

  9. Hope says:

    The only team order flights going in and out of Canada these days are special flights to repatriate stranded Canadians after we closed our borders. This article, while predictable, is so irrational and illogical.

    • lizzieb says:

      @hope. So true. Even if he managed a private flight, putting others at risk, he probably would not be allowed back into the country. He is not a citizen and probably not even a permanent resident. Excellent point above. Even if he lived in the UK he would probably not be allowed to see Charles. The venom and hatred from the RR and many readers of the Daily Wail is mind boggling. We always knew many were racist hate mongers, but this brings it to another level.

    • BabsORIG says:

      @Hope, I mentioned this yesterday and was said to be “obtuse”.

  10. Aria says:

    Cant they sue the press for articles like these?? I cant wrap my head why Sussex are not using these daily false articles where cambridges manage to shut down any small bad angle about them.

    • Brit says:

      I don’t think it’s worth it. Everyone predicted that the mail and tabloids would do something like this. If anything it makes the trolls and media look even more ridiculous. I’ve seen more people come to understand why they’re leaving as a result of this. The media just looks foolish at this point.

    • yinyang says:

      @aria I agree @Brit, I see what you mean, but her haters repost this stuff and it reaches far audience that don’t bother/have time to look at the source.

    • Anonymous says:

      The tabloids own the Cambridge’s, that’s why.

    • Thirtynine says:

      I think, I hope, that with the lawsuits, they are absolutely going to push as hard as they can, for everything they can. I can’t see them settling in any way. For Harry, it’s personal, and I think if he saw the tabloids power irredeemably broken he’d consider it a good days work. The tabloids know this and are fighting like cornered rats.

  11. GR says:

    My elderly aunt lives a few hours away from me, and her birthday is in a few days. I had originally planned to be there, but I decided it was safest for her not to. The risk of traveling to another *continent* to see her would be insane.

  12. Brit says:

    There was some moron on twitter yesterday who said that Meghan and Harry needed to come back to fix their “shattered reputations” to help the country and Royal family and everyone including other journalists and people were just perplexed. It seems to me the Royal Rota and media are bored and are stirring up drama so they can make money because the royals aren’t working and the ones that are, don’t sell. Those tabloids and media saw what was left in that family and they are already begging Harry and Meghan to return. They don’t know what to do because everything has been canceled, the appearances on worldwide networks are dwindling, Harry and Meghan aren’t playing the media game and won’t be seen for awhile at this point. They know they shot themselves in the foot and they don’t know what to do. It’s desperation and you love to see it.

    • Olenna says:

      Well, I’m for calling out the muckrakers, hacks and bigots today. That moron is Isabel Oakeshott, a conservative and so-called editor at the Sunday Times. Wiki says that in 2018, she separated from her husband and began a relationship with businessman and Brexit Party chairman Richard Tice.

      • Sunshine says:

        Do you know whose staff is full of Brexit people?

      • 👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼👏🏼 thanks for the clarification Olenna. I had signed up for The Times online as I thought it was a news source of integrity. Once I learned that it is also owned by Rupert Murdoch I cancelled my subscription (which they make extremely difficult to do). I instead have made a donation to The Guardian and have a log in for online access to it.

      • Ruby_Woo says:

        I noticed that tweet yesterday and could not even be bothered to get upset about it. I’ve really done well to ignore the RRs.

        But to be fair – she was DRAGGED this morning. Absolutley DRAGGED. I love Meghan, but to be honest most Brits really don’t really bother with the Royal Family. I think most people don’t mind her and know the media have been terrible, but I think it’s only now that she’s gone that a lot of Brits have realised what bullshit she’s had to deal with.

        This tweet just highlighted this and made the general public realise even more that these media peeps just hate Meghan. Most responses have been ‘are you serious? there is a pandemic, you are an idiot’ and ‘ok… so I know why Harry and Meghan left, because of people like you’.

        I’m glad they are saying this shit in public, it just shows them up for the idiots (or more likely, the attention seekers) they are.

        What gets me really angry is, do they actually believe what they say or do they deep down realise what horrible people they are.

    I had a visual of Meghan running around the palace locking door knobs and looking for the queen’s bathroom and using her toothbrush!!! 🤣

    When one has nothing to crucify, that’s when the lies and exaggerations begin. They hate her with a passion and it is very evident to anyone with half a brain.

  14. Yoyo says:

    The dailyfail article was written by a mixed race woman, so that it appears if a black Woman wrote this, the dailyfail is not racist.
    Well all of her accounts are locked now “chicken” can write crap, but goes into hiding when she is called on her BS.

    • lizzieb says:

      @yoyo. I may be dim but am not understanding you. Even if the “journalist” (using the term loosely) is mixed race, I think that the agenda of the fail is to be hateful and racist. At best the writer was probably told to toe the party line. Is that what you meant? The vileness of the wail is astounding. Greed and hate marching hand in hand.

      • Olenna says:

        Writers have choices. That so-called journalist, Cheyenne Roundtree, is an American and former blogger, who has written several ignorant articles about the DoS. And the biracial aspect is notable: She created and posted a video on Youtube about her own family’s interracial strife and journey to forgiveness. At some point in her young life, she must’ve hit a moral crossroads and decided to go in the wrong direction.

      • Anonymous says:

        Lizzieb – Yoyo is correct. The writer was used exactly because she’s a biracial woman. The Daily Mail’s equivalent of I can’t be a racist, I have black friends or family members. A tale as old as time.

      • lizzieb says:

        Thanks @olenna and @anonymous. Makes sense that the writer is as bad as the employer since she chose to work for them.

      • ennie says:

        I think this writer’s first ever article was about Meghan particularly, I dare not visit the Dfail, but my guess is that this woman is being used to push the Dfail’s agenda.

        I have noticed some profiles of people whose activity on twitter is just to retweet their articles. I think they are bots or people who are paid to boost their number of retweets, particularly about Meghan and Harry.

      • Nic919 says:

        She’s like Candace Owens where supporting white supremacy makes them more money than acting with dignity.

      • Olenna says:

        Agree, Nic919. Grifters Owens (mainly by way of her catfish, fake Keen fan and DoS hate account) and partner-in-crime Wayn* Dupre*, conservative shock jock, spend too much time on Twitter trashing the DoS. There has to be a pay-off. But for her, I think it’s more than money, attention and notoriety; there’s big-time envy.

    • Ruby_Woo says:

      That is so disappointing. There is a British Pakistani lady who is Loose Women (UK ladies chat show, like the View) and she was so angry that Meghan left. Her reasoning was that she had to put up with racism, so why couldn’t Meghan. She then went on to write a column about it and apparently got paid a lot of money.

      There are always going to be crappy people willing to sell their souls. Things will never be right with them.

    If they went to visit, which would be a mistake, cause everyone knows elderly should not be having visitors, these media outlest would have made them irresponsible again. Someone should tell Willieleaks to stop it. People should read about what the Firm is doing instead of constantly bullying H&M. I do hope Brits abolish this mess of a family.

    • Brit says:

      I don’t even think it’s all William. I think it’s the papers want to bully Harry and Meghan because they’re angry. I do think some of the royals were jealous of Harry and Meghan but it’s the media who want them back the most. They’re going to continue being petty because their money makers gave them the finger and rightfully despise the papers.

      • Fleur says:

        Honestly, the press acts like an abusive boyfriend or husband. ‘You’re worthless, foolish, never do anything right’ and then when you dare to leave, they make your life hell for leaving and trying to live without them. They did the EXACT same thing to Diana. I was 10 when she died, and in the year leading up to her death I *distinctly* remember the constant vicious headlines and stalking. Then when she died, I also remember thinking, how are they going to cover this after treating her so horribly. There was no acknowledgement of the vile way they treated her in the days and weeks after her death- just a bunch of glowing articles, as if they’d had no role in the harassment and the way she met her end.

      • lemonylips says:

        yeah, I know… I get your point but I also really dislike the RF as much as these media so at least it’s a bit more fun blaming boring Wills a bit too.

      • Beach Dreams says:

        It’s definitely both. Between late January and the Sussexes’ brief return to the UK, the British press were floundering on royal coverage and those RRs knew it too. Even before then, when Meghan was on maternity leave, many of the RRs’ royal podcasts went on a break and came back when she started making appearances. William and Kate are simply not interesting enough to catch the amount of traffic the British outlets are so desperate for. No matter how much those two are propped up, they’re absolutely void of charisma. This *shouldn’t* be an issue since they’ll be taking the throne anyway, but William and Kate obviously feel differently.

  16. Livvers says:

    From a storytelling/lying perspective, the dog foster detail is _very_ specific and I think it is being used to try and add verisimilitude to the “Meghan cuts Harry off from his family!” fabrication that precedes it.

    • Mary says:

      As I pointed out yesterday, I think there is a leak in the Sussexes’ Vancouver Island household. Some recent stories have contained, while mostly bullsh*t, some oddly specific details with a kernel of truth. A dog named “Cole”? I think this part would have been leaked rather than made up. The Royal Reporters are usually not that specific when mudslinxging.

      • Yoyo says:

        Royal reporters don’t need leaks, their MO is making crap up.
        Funny a year ago their dog name was ‘OZ’, so now the new shelter dog is called Cole.

      • mimi says:

        You must need read a lot of articles by the royal rota because they have no problem making up very specific details and then blaming their “sources” when they are proven wrong.

      • Livvers says:

        @ mimi In addition, inventing really specific details that make their story seem plausible puts the Royals on the back foot if they want to issue a denial. On principle they wouldn’t issue a denial about a vaguely sourced alleged private family issue, but then for the dog story they may be tempted to clarify such an easily refutable detail. So do they issue a double-barelled denial? A half denial which people can then say “well you only said the dog part was fake so I guess the bit about Harry and his father is true?!”?

        It’s crazy manipulative and if an intimate partner was using these tactics we would say RUN.

      • Marie says:

        Exactly. They kept calling the dog OZ until Meghan mentioned they got the name wrong. They have no sources so they are making stuff up to see what sticks. If they adopt a new dog that’s great, but I don’t believe it.

      • Olenna says:

        @Mary, you seem to like that phrase “kernel of truth” about these Fail articles. To keep posting it without providing details leaves me with little doubt you are inclined to believe most of that rag’s bullsh*t.

      • BabsORIG says:

        @Olena, thank you, very well said. I can see right thru @Mary’s BS, she/he isn’t fooling nobody but him/herself.

      • Anonymous says:

        Day before, long time royal rota reporters were moaning over dried up income. Next day, Charles tests positive and suddenly unknown chick has leaking inside Sussex source? Sure, Jan.

      • Jaded says:

        @Mary, there is no leaking coming from the Sussex household. I live near them and not a single WORD has been written about them in ANY of the Canadian media. NOT ONE WORD. But you rely on some scurrilous whispers from god knows who that the RRs have managed to infiltrate their household? That is utter nonsense.

      • Mary says:

        Whioaa, @Olenna, @Babsorig, not sure what you are trying to accuse me of (and I was not aware that I use “kernel of truth” all the time (and I don’t)) but, e.g., when a very recent article cites a “friend” of the Sussexes talking, very specifically, about the Sussexes’ plans for online mental health initiatives during this time of Covid-19 and, sure enough, that is exactly what rolls out a day or two later, I have to think that there is a link in the Sussex camp. That is just one example…and after the story about the latex gloves, I am thinking that it is someone in their household.

        Just what the f*ck were you implying about me?

      • SomeChick says:

        A BLACK dog. Named “Cole.” More like a dogwhistle.

        You really believe this nonsense, just because they threw in a specific – completely unprovable – detail? They make up details all the time.

        I highly doubt they’d get another dog. They already have a dog, and a small baby. Integrating the new dog with the existing dog is a project. It just doesn’t pass the smell test.

        The dog thing, easy to make up. The gloves thing – predictable.

        If there were a leak, we’d be getting more than just the Big Bad Meg fabrications.

        The mail is hogwash. It should be sold in the fiction section.

      • Abena Asantewaa says:

        @ Mary There is no leak, their household is very small, they will know who is leaking what. This is an old trick used by the media, they are confidence tricksters. They probably heard she would be doing something with Mayhew in this climate, it is just an educated guess. They purposely went to that blogger to do a number on Meghan, so they can say they are not being racists, and the idiot, who wants to be famous, was too willing to comply, now she is finished. Remember the name: Cheyenne Roundtree. I hear she is hiding from her Twitter and instagram, accounts. Shameless coward.

      • Beach Dreams says:

        Might I add to the chain and remind Mary that Emily Andrews created an entire story about Meghan’s baby shower a day before it happened, complete with details and made-up quotes from a supposed attendee. This is par for the course with royal reporting on Meghan.

      • Mary says:

        @Abena, thank you for your reasoned and rational response to my post. This is a gossip site and from time to time we put on our tin foil hats and come up with theories. No clue why my suspicion of a leak is causing such hostility and accusations. Seriously, @Babsorig, wtf ?!

        I wrote a response that for some reason did not get posted but I cited a specific example. Google it yourselves, it’s the helpless, gloves, mental health crisis, online support story published in numerous papers. It talks about the Sussexes launching an online support initiative about two days before they actually did.

      • notasugarhere says:

        Mary, posters have given repeated examples of how the Fail and other tabloids make up stories using ‘friends said’ when it comes to the Sussexes. Their household is them and the nanny, that’s it. There are no leaks, but you’re here desperately trying to convince people in spite of the evidence against you. Why so desperate to put a leak in their household?

      • Mary says:

        @notasugarhere, I am not desperate to put a leak in the Sussexes’ household. I am responding to people that are accusing me of believing whatever the rags said and God knows what else. @Olenna implied I was lying and had no examples, so, I gave her an example. Some are misstating my original post. Read it, I specifically said that most of what is written is “bullsh*t.” However, when something specific is written about the Sussexes that later turns out to be true, I don’t think it is unreasonable to suspect a leak. In short, I am defending myself.

        FYI @Jade, that upstanding press in Canada has published gossip about the Sussexes before. Check out the Vancouver Sun’s regurgitation of an “a source says” US Weekly article published online today (talking about how Meghan feels now that she is free).

      • Olenna says:

        @Mary, you made the same comment yesterday in the PC and sons thread, and I wrote that I’d like to know what “kernels of truth” you’re talking about. Didn’t call you a liar yesterday nor today, but did “imply” today that you believe more of what the Fail writes than I would.

        Now the details as I see them: With the COVID-19 situation already a national emergency in Italy and escalating in other EU countries, the Sussexes travel to London, then Harry returns to Canada just short of getting caught in a travel ban. Before this, all over SM and the gossip sites, haters were accusing Meghan, specifically, of “probably” trying to grab the limelight and “preach” to them about COVID-19 from the start of the pandemic in the EU. We all know, however, that if the Sussexes had publicly addressed any of their charities, or other social or health issue after the sh*t got real in the EU and UK, they would’ve been trashed. So, on 18 March, SR posts about the pandemic and subsequently makes related follow-on posts. The RRs and haters immediately pounce and trash the Sussexes. Now, how hard is it to believe the Fail was already primed for the pandemic posts as opposed to the post(s) being leaked? The Sussexes were damned if they did and damned if they didn’t. And, let’s not forget, we don’t know when they learned of PC’s positive test.

      • Mary says:

        @Olenna, a response I just made to yours did not post, so I will be short and sweet: ffs can you not read? I stated that I had made a prior post in which I indicated that recently some specific claims in some stories end up being true (sorry, I was not aware anyone had responded to that post). I also indicated that most of what is written is bull. I don’t know how you got from my statements that I believe most of the crap in the DM .

        Most of your post is irrelevant to my posts except that statement which asks if it is so hard to believe that the RRs basically got lucky and some of what they were slinging stuck. No it is not. Just like it is not hard to believe there is a leak.

      • Olenna says:

        OK, @Mary. My details and timeline are irrelevant to you, and you’ve provided no specific details showing the Fail articles published true or factual information ahead of the SR IG posts that could’ve been leaked from inside the Sussex household or PR team. So, I’m gonna leave this conservation here since there’s nothing more to consider.

      • Mary says:

        @Olenna, March 17th, DM has an article about Meghan in which it talks about the S’s hopes of an online mental health initiative with detail; the 18th, S’s post on Instagram general reference to Covid-19 and how they will have online supportive presence. It is in the 20th that the S’s on Instagram post info specific to mental health, not unlike some of what was in the DM article. There. Specific. Example.

        As I previously stated, I had tried to post this info yesterday but it did not go through. No matter, you knew, I am sure, the matter I had been referencing. Just because I noted that some of what was in the 17th article ended up being true does not make me a believer in or proponent of the DM .

      • Ed says:

        I will say no Mary

  17. Redgrl says:

    As I understand it, Canada’s borders are closed except for necessary trade and repatriating Canadians who were stranded abroad. Harry wouldn’t fall in either of those categories. So he’s not going anywhere. But of course, that would take too much fact gathering about Canada – or, as the Fail and its readership see it – the colonial outpost no man’s land “in the middle of nowhere.”

    • lizzieb says:

      @redgrl. So true. Hate to say it but starting to thing the Daily Fail average reader is short on reasoning skills.

    • Maria says:

      You are right. They can’t leave Canada, if they could, they would have to be quarantined for 2 weeks upon arrival in the UK, and they can’t visit an older relative who has the virus. Those are the facts.

  18. Harper says:

    And to top off the ridiculousness, the Fail is running a red Exclusive bar over the story, as if to warn the other tabloids that they have to come up with another angle to trash Meghan. This particular lie brought to you exclusively by the Daily Mail!

  19. Marie says:

    The royal reporters were complaining the other day on the lack of stories and tv appearances so I am guessing they are thrilled Charles has this so they can blame Meghan. That’s all they want to do, blame Meghan.

  20. Sarah says:

    Here in the UK we can only leave our homes for essential work, (minimal) grocery shopping and medical needs. Oh and once a day to exercise outside as long as we maintain 2m distance from others. Unless you live with people you are not allowed to physically interact with them (couples have been told to live together or stay apart), the only exception is children with parents who have separated who are allowed to move between them. So no, you do NOT visit ANYONE. The government has banned this.

  21. Fleur says:

    The minute I saw Charles had covid, I knew people would say it was Meghan’s fault somehow. Predictably heinous

    • kellebelle says:

      A much bigger concern is that he knew he had symptoms and traveled anyway, and shook hands with many people!! But the press won’t cover that, they’ll just use Meghan’s name for clicks. Sickos.

      • Tessa says:

        It’s amazing they give Charles a free pass. And William and Kate too for their PR stunt.

      • Abena Asantewaa says:

        @Kellebell, please lets stick to the truth. Charles was tested in Scotland on Tuesday, he did not know he had it when he was leaving London. We wish him speedy recovery. The press are hatching a plan to separate Harry from Meghan, knowing very well all the borders are closed, and the fact that no one is allowed to visit an over 70 relative, let alone one infected with the virus, makes the whole article sinister, but Harry has got their number. He and Meghan can’t be blackmailed into giving into their despicable articles. No one even visited their mothers on Mothering Sunday. More evidence of malice for their law suit. Arthur Edwards once said, if H&M don’t give in to the press, they would be mocked, so there!

      • kellebelle says:

        Abena, I understood that he knew he was symptomatic and socialized anyway. That was my understanding, and then got tested. If I have that wrong then so be it. People are also saying Camilla has it but I doubt that, but again, not entirely sure. Of course they’re trying to separate Harry and Meghan. It will never work.

  22. Lisa says:

    So predictable and disgusting.

  23. MsIam says:

    Our county sheriff was interviewed today and he said his brother has it. He is in the hospital and the sheriff said no one in the family has been allowed to see him for almost two weeks, including his wife and kids. And they all live right here in the area. So the idea that Harry would be flying in from Canada to see Charles is crazy. I think these reporters or whoever is giving them their marching orders has to be soulless right now to be this awful.

    • Noodle says:

      I heard yesterday that children who are hospitalized with it aren’t being allowed to even see their parents. I’m wasn’t sure if this was a fact or panicked rumors setting in. For Harry to travel to the UK and see His dad (if he were even allowed), then come home, and possibly infect his wife and kid who would be isolated from him in hospital? I can’t imagine a worse hell for him.

  24. MeghanNotMarkle says:

    They’re damned if they do, damned if they don’t. If Harry did go to the UK he’d be bucking the PM’s authority and acting holier than thou during a lockdown. And somehow Meghan would be to blame. Nobody is visiting anyone so the best place for H&M and Archie is right where they are – at home. Charles said he’s been in touch with both sons so I don’t see why this is such a big deal other than to have a reason to continue to trash Meghan for click$.

  25. Case says:

    You’re not supposed to have visitors if you have COVID-19. And you’re not supposed to travel unnecessarily right now, healthy or otherwise. Amazing that they turned this around on Meghan.

  26. Citresse says:

    With an infant son to protect, both H&M shouldn’t visit anyone
    suffering with a virus, especially Covid19. If Harry needs to fly then I’m pretty sure arrangements to travel privately can be done via the owner of the Vancouver island property they reside.

  27. Emily says:

    ‪New headline: Prince Harry, his own person, smart enough to follow social isolation recommendations of every single health expert in the world without his wife “making” him. ‬

  28. Agirlandherdog says:

    I mean, that’s kind of the point of QUARANTINE. You don’t see people. People don’t come to visit you. Thankfully, we live in an age where people can visit with each other via videoconferencing through a ton of different apps.

  29. MegJ says:

    Charles is not a little old widow all alone in a tiny flat with no help or anyone to do his shopping. He has a wife, lives in a palace and has staff at his beck and call. His doesn’t need to leave his own wife and baby to fly home and buy old dad a tin of soup!! Give us a break!!

  30. Feeshalori says:

    I concur with everyone’s take on the ridiculous crap being thrown at Meghan, but am really here to say l got my American laugh of the day at the line that Meghan “laughed like an American all the way back to Canada, knowing she had left a coronatrap for the senior royals.” That was a great accompaniment to my morning coffee.

  31. paddingtonjr says:

    Am I the only one who had a vision of this 5-ft-nothing, 100-nothing-pound Duchess flinging herself onto the former Army officer, beating him with her fists as she screams “no!” and he tries to run out the door? Seriously, everyone is on lock down, government officials around the world are saying stay home, leave only for work/necessities/medical attention, no unnecessary travel. By all accounts, Charles has a mild case of the virus, is in general good health, and has his staff with him, at least one of whom could quickly get him medical attention as necessary. Anyone from the outside would risk infecting themselves or making Charles worse, that’s why we quarantine. Charles has been in contact with his sons and mother, everyone is being kept in the loop, and that’s the best situation right now.

  32. Marie says:

    Harry must have super powers we don’t know about. He NEEDS to visit his dad, he NEEDS to visit Philip when he is in the hospital, he NEEDS to be at Christmas, etc..

    People twisting things to blame MM for the virus..STFU!
    We all know it was my Ex Husbands fault. That sorry SOB is the root of all evil.

    • Harla says:

      From now on, anything that goes wrong in my day/life I’m going to say “it’s SJR’s ex-husband’s fault”!!

    • Noodle says:

      @SJR, I am picturing a “Blame Canada”-like tune, but “Blame SJR’s Ex” doesn’t have the same syllabic patterns. I am open to other ideas…

      • Lady D says:

    “A source exclusively told The Daily Fail,” lol. I will never stop laughing.

    • Mumbles says:

      Yeah I’m surprised people are even taking this story seriously, given it’s in the Fail. Who would be the source?

  37. TheOriginalMia says:

    This is a ridiculous story. We live in the age of Skype, Zoom, and Face-Time. Harry can virtually visit with Charles without any concerns that he or Meghan or Archie will be infected. There’s nothing Harry can do for Charles other than send his love and prayers for his recovery. Placing Meghan in the evil demoness role is getting old. The woman is on another continent and the British tabs are still pulling this crap. Find a new storyline.

  38. February Pisces says:

    It’s stupid I even have to defend this. I and everyone else predicted she would be blamed for something. What’s annoying is that the trolls on twitter and the press actually have the cheek to put this out there when they know it’s not possible for harry to visit. They are shameless for a reason, because they value money and power over actual credibility. At this point the press and haters are just being deliberately provocative just for clicks and user engagement only, even if its because people are calling them out. There is no sense or logic to their stories. The DM could literally write ‘Meghan Markle believes in aliens’ and the would still draw 10K negative comments (mostly from KP troll bots) but it’s still draws some negative attention to Meghan to drive revenue.

  39. Valiantly Varnished says:

    This is just dumb. Why would Harry fly out to see someone…is in Quarantine and cant have visitors? They are really insulting people’s intelligence with these dumba$$ stories.

  40. LeonsMomma says:

    What should happen — but won’t based on previous slams on Meghan: Prince Charles issue a statement saying that he has banned anyone to see him, from him mum to his children and grandchildren.

    Come on Charles, get a backbone. Try for once to defend your family.

      I absolutley agree! This is why I can’t stand that family.

    • Yoyo says:

      Charles and backbone, should not be in the same sentence.
      Diana said he was spineless, thirty years later and it’s still true.
      Unless anyone get in his way of wearing the crown.

  41. Abena Asantewaa says:

    Have noticed how the press tried to embiggen William by proposing the regency angle, while’s PC is still alive. The Press doesn’t really like him, and I have a feeling he can’t stand up to William. Charles has no backbone. See how he is being dragged for the corona test, but am sure, William would have gotten some sympathy from the press. William is dangerous.

    • Beach Dreams says:

      William has been difficult to deal with since he was a child AND he apparently has a hell of a temper. Palace staff have said this for ages and I can see how that’s developed into the current mess the royal family is in. Charles is obsessed with his image (especially since the War of the Waleses + Diana’s death did a number on his reputation) and Betty is infamous for sticking her head in the sand on family matters. Between these two idiots and the future-future idiot’s temper tantrums, I can see how an “appease William at all costs” approach became the favored one after Diana died. William’s advantage over Charles is that he’s Diana’s son, and specifically Diana’s “golden boy” in comparison to the “dumb Harry” narrative. He’s going to be favored and protected as long as he’s able to keep his skeletons in the closet.

      • Lady D says:

        Charles will have no compunction about releasing those skeletons if they get too close to his crown.

      • Yoyo says:

        You will find that Harry is more popular than William.
        Then Meghan came along and the green monster raised hell to get Harry out of the way.
        Not a very confident man although he is the second heir. He want the glory without working for it.

  42. L4frimaire says:

    This is such a bad article and just factually inaccurate in so many ways. The writer locked all her social media accounts real quick. There was a epic drag on Twitter from someone who went to journalism school with her at Univ. of Missouri. Basically saying that everyone who knew her from back then is not surprised she now prints lies for a living…ouch. I’m stuck at home with kids and just laid off, so while I generally ignore these stupid stories, have been dragging these fools on Twitter mostly with GIFs. Not in the mood for their lying BS.

    This is a desperate attempt to get them to resurface because not even the paparazzi camping outside can get a glimpse of the Sussexs!! The news of Meghan’s documentary will only get them going for few days. These “experts” were complaining about their work drying up so you can imagine how much money they are losing now that invictus is cancelled. I bet we wont see them go to trooping (lizzy is taking her time cancelling that)

    • notasugarhere says:

      If the paps are not Canadian, they should/would have been removed from the country by now.

    • BabsORIG says:

      Even before this Covid-19 outbreak, the few paps that tried to get their pics were having a hard time doing so because Canadians don’t put up with such crap. Vancouver Islanders were giving them such pushback they couldn’t believe it. Now with our new quarantine regulations in place, there are zero paps camped outside the Sussex home.

    They cant visit Charles also because they are to busy moving to LA when the Prime Minister of Canada told people to stay put and not travel 2 weeks ago. This REALLY is not a good look. :(

    • Marie says:

      Do you believe tabloids? I’m going to wait till it is officially confirmed. Someone read the article and it said they left for LA before the borders closed. But, I don’t believe the story.

      • L4frimaire says:

        It’s all over the press there. Curious to see if this actually happened and when. I wouldn’t say a thing for the next few months just to drive them crazy.The Sussexes are the gift that keeps on giving. No way are the UK tabloids giving up on covering them once they are officially out next week.

      • blue36 says:

        Idk, the story came from Dan and he’s been getting a lot of things right these days. I think they might have already been in LA for a while now (like right after they left the UK). Or if the exclusive is right and they left right before Canada closed their borders, there might have been personal reasons for it. Who keeps leaking to Dan, especially their location?

    • Olenna says:

      @Thinking, you said, “This REALLY is not a good look.” To whom is it not a good look? Most people with good sense know PC is under quarantine and can’t have visitors. If the Sussexes have moved, this shouldn’t come as a surprise since they never said they would live permanently in Canada. And, if for residency qualification reasons they couldn’t stay there, it’s seems logical they’d move to the US. Anyway, it’s not like this situation just evolved over a two-week period. And, just think, as of 1 April, all the people who judge them now as royals can move on and concentrate of the FFK and FFQ and their 3 little heirs.

    • GuestWho says:

      I can think of a number of reasons why they moved now. First, they already had it arranged, the house they were in was no longer available; maybe they didn’t have an appropriate visa and couldn’t stay longer so went to the country where 2 out of the 3 of them are citizens; maybe they had already moved – some of the reports say they’ve already “settled in” in LA. Whatever the reason, you can probably assume it wasn’t on a whim.
