Courtiers: Prince Harry ‘would be welcomed back… but he would have to return alone’

Britain's Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex (C) and Meghan, Duchess of Sussex (L) stand with Canada's High Commissioner for Canada in the United Kingdom, Janice Charette, as they leave after their visit to Canada House in thanks for the warm Canadian hospitalit

Pretty much as soon as Finding Freedom was announced earlier this year, other tabloid “biographers” swarmed on the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s exit and declared that they too were writing books about what went down. I don’t even necessarily believe that most of these rushed biographies are concerned with pro-Cambridge narratives or legitimate palace sources. I think most of them just want to scream at Prince Harry and Meghan and they think it will be profitable to do so.

Lady Colin Campbell is one of those “biographers” writing a fake tell-all about how Meghan and Harry are awful. This is the “counterprogramming” to Finding Freedom and I am not going to participate in her crap. Everything she’s saying is coming across as unhinged and false. So, as I’ve said before, I’m going to ignore the bulk of her sh-t. Someone still sent me a link to the Sun’s latest coverage of Lady Colin’s latest, which is that Meghan is like “Lady Macbeth” because… her argument makes no sense, but I’m sure a lot of people will buy whatever negative crap is thrown at the Sussexes. Buried at the end of the Sun’s interview with Lady Colin was this curious little item though, and it is worth discussing:

Palace aides have rallied against Harry and Meghan’s biography by dubbing it “Finding Me-dom”.The book accuses royal staff ­– including some who have decades of service – of acting like untrustworthy “vipers” during Megxit.

An insider revealed: “Finding Freedom has been nicknamed Finding Me-dom.“The name has been doing the rounds this week. The book is being laughed at. It is being seen as very unfairly critical of hard-working palace staff who had tried so hard with Meghan. It’s being called Finding Me-dom because Meghan is seen as the driving force behind everything – including the book. The ‘me’ is for Meghan but also works as she is the dominant one in the relationship.”

“Harry would be welcomed back with open arms but he would have to return alone.”

[From The Sun]

Can you even imagine? I laughed at the thought of the viper courtiers being BIG MAD about being called viper courtiers and so they went to the Sun to cry about how hard-working they are. They said Meghan should never come back because she’s awful but Harry can come back if he abandons his wife and child. The courtiers keep showing their asses with their “reactions” to every little thing in Finding Freedom and it feels like the whole house of cards is collapsing. It’s pretty funny. Defund the monarchy.

    I pointed out to someone last night that the POV that this wasn’t hurting the Queen or the family was bs. People see behind the curtain now and it shows an ineffectual CEO, who’s let the employees run amok. If this book wasn’t revealing some truths, we wouldn’t have all these vipers and households running to the tabs to refute this little ol’ inconsequential book and couple. Hit dogs will help. Also…he ain’t coming back with it without his family. He’s gone.

    • Bren says:

      The family welcomes this distraction by the courtiers if it means keeping pedo Andrew out of the headlines. It’s beyond disgusting. Agreed, Harry is never coming back.

      • (TheOG) jan90067 says:

        Funny that there was another article yesterday about Virgina Roberts and Pedo spending time *alone* at Epstein’s ranch. She was flown at there to be at his “service”. Then, after 3 days she was brought back and “debriefed” by Epstein and Maxwell. You can bet the farm there were cameras all over recording everything that went on. Pedo and Petty must be sh*tting their pants at this point.

    • A says:

      I agree. It looks like the family has lost control of this story and every article that comes out shows how little solidarity there is among them and how hostile they are to outsiders. I have always figured the BRF and their attendants are, you know, elitist and probably racist if for no other reason than that’s what privilege generally gets you. But I will never understand why after all these scandals over the years their PR game is still so weak. They can’t even make up a plausible story or stick to it for more than a news cycle. The Queen, I guess it’s her, must not trust anyone else’s judgement, or she can’t take that kind of criticism.

      • GuestWho says:

        I think their PR game is so weak because they honestly don’t expect to be questioned, and when they are, that their answers won’t be questioned. It’s like pedo’s TV interview – he thought he did great initially because he thought that the peasants wouldn’t doubt his (incredibly laughable and lame) explanation.

        Add to that that they are NOT particularly bright people, and you have a PR nightmare.

      • Sunday says:

        Yes, the family has lost control of this story, and the fact that courtiers and staff feel so emboldened that they’re actively speaking to the press (anonymously/off the record, but still) to defend THEMSELVES, not even the family, should terrify the royal family.

        This is the same way I feel when journalists from the White House press pool report on how they were treated at the briefing. They are inserting themselves into the narrative in a way that is counterproductive to their mission as journalists. In this example, the real story is the White House abusing freedom of the press by blatantly lying to the press pool, not that someone was mean to Jim Acosta.

        The mere presence of the royal staff and courtiers in the story at all just shows that (a) they have actively gotten permission to talk to the press at the expense of Harry and Meghan, and neither they nor the royal family cares how obvious they are about it (b) the queen is totally senile, has fully lost the plot, and her staff is now able to manipulate her as they see fit, or (c) all of the above. Because what this is NOT, is a coherent PR strategy.

    • NotSoSocialButterfly says:

      He is gone- it’s amazing to think that the RR entertained any idea that this would work- rather, it’s blowing up in the whole BRF’s collective faces.

      Not unlike the squatter in the Oval Office and how he’s (not) dealing with the fkn pandemic.

    • Elizabeth says:

      This whole thing is so bizarre. Why would an ostensibly “christian” group of people be trying so hard to break up a marriage? Isn’t that a sin?

      • whatever says:

        Also it’s Harry should return alone, sans Megan, …but also sans Archie? They may not like his wife but what has the baby ever done to them?

      • VS says:

        The baby has black a biracial mother and a black grandmother; as someone said above, if H ever returns then I will question his sanity. His kid will be abused to cover for his brother’s kids
        Archie was already called a brat and he wasn’t even 6 month old! that Charles said nothing when his OWN grandson was compared to a chimp told me so much about him!
        I do get that the palace cannot address every single crazy story out there but that one was so offensive!

      • HeyJude says:

        “ostensibly “christian” group”

        This is the same “Christian” group that started their own entire new domination of religion and forced the entire country to leave Roman Catholicism just so the King could divorce his wife to marry the younger sister of his mistress

        So I’m not sure they’re married to their Christianity. Literally.

    • OnceUponA says:

      Do you honestly believe anyone at the Palace would be making this statements if the Queen wanted them stopped?

      At BEST — and this is a pretty slimy best — it’s a distraction to take bandwidth away from Randy Andy. (And I beg you not to fall for it.)

      At worst, Lillibet believes this as well.

      “Dump your wife and child and come home, chastised.” Wow. That’s an impressive low.

    • Are they kidding? What kind of person would Harry be if he abandoned his wife and child? This is nonsense.

  2. Elizabeth says:

    Why the !!!! are the servants running the show at the palace(s)? Who among the staff thinks they can dictate to Harry about his MARRIAGE?! Do the royals not realize how weak it makes them all look to have their servants leaking like sieves to the gutter press?!

  3. Ina says:

    This monarchy needs to cease to exist. What a bunch of insufferable, vindictive fools.

  4. Cava24 says:

    So, basically, he’s right- the courtiers think they run everything and they probably do. The arrogance of them thinking they get to decide whether Harry is welcomed back into the family business and that they get to decide the terms.

    • Osty says:

      They are bold because they know that’s the wishes n feeling of their bosses. They have been doing this for years n they r still working there so obviously they took the directives from the royals. Jason is still there after it was confirmed his lover who doesn’t work in the palace sold information to the press

    • BayTampaBay says:

      What I want to know about specifically is what specific help the courtiers tried to give to the Sussexes that they rejected?

      • Osty says:

        @bay help to not overshadow the keens, help to be mediocre, help to mellow themselves so the keens would look good , help to allow the keens take credit for their work .

      • notasugarhere says:

        Tried to help them right over the white cliffs of Dover

      • BayTampaBay says:

        @Osty – I get all that but I want the real specific dirt. What specifically was said to the Sussexes? What specifically did the Sussexes reject? What specifically were the Sussexes asked to do they they refused to do? What specifically did the Sussexes want to do that was overruled?

        I am tired of hearing about Tights, Tiaras and Air Fresheners.

      • Reece says:

        @Bay But that’s all it literally is. THAT is how petty, bigoted and racist they are.

      • ABritGuest says:

        @baytampabay I think the Sussexes would have been told to give access to the press- do the hospital photo call, allow the press to photograph the christening arrivals etc& the smear campaign would lose steam.

        I think the staff wanted them to pay off Thomas Markle when he started doing all those interviews after the wedding. I remember seeing royal experts say that he should have been set up with an apartment etc to keep him quiet. There was a Vanity Fair story that the Queen wanted her staff to handle him but the Sussexes said no. Meghan knows her father better though- I wouldn’t have given into that blackmail either though seeing as he has history of poor money management and would likely come back for more if they gave into demands once.

        Ingrid Seward said the staff didn’t like Meghan going around going around meeting charities privately when she first moved to the U.K so it’s likely the courtiers wanted to steer her charity work. I also think many people had their noses put out of joint by the cookbook project. Now I wonder if given that the Cambridges had only become ‘full time’ royals in 2017, whether staff etc wanted Kate to have launched a major initiative first before Meghan did the cookbook (of course she was responding to an immediate need) & that was one of the issues around hierarchy that was encountered.

      • BayTampaBay says:

        @ABritGuest – Thank you for your informative post.

    • Becks1 says:

      Yup. Every time the courtiers run to the press with leaks like this it just proves that Harry was right – the courtiers are vipers and they run the show.

      It makes the whole family look incredibly weak and ineffectual – and mean.

    • The fact that they wouldn’t welcome Meghan back, try to build some bridge in that sense, tells you everything. They are not the kindly, hardworking, sensible employees, just doing their jobs, trying to make the best of things, they’ve painted themselves to be. They are, in fact, everything that Finding Freedom claims: petty, foolish, snobs. And they haven’t thought this through.

  5. duchess of hazard says:

    Come back alone? Welp, at least they aren’t hiding it anymore. But what kind of man would Harry be if he left his wife and kid to return to the family just to be a third wheel? Just because they aren’t fully white doesn’t mean that their lives don’t matter?

    • S808 says:

      I’m glad they’re saying the quiet part out loud.

      • Bettyrose says:

        IKR? Big time saver for all. No time wasted decoding dog whistles.

      • Liz version 700 says:

        Yep, the quiet part is smacking us in the face now. They never planned on letting her stay no matter what she did. Then she brought a black child into the royal family and all hell rained down. I hope Harry and Meghan don’t even bother reading any of this mess and just enjoy being young, hot, happy and free.

  6. S808 says:

    If Harry went back to that dysfunction I’d question his sanity. All the household are working against each other, no one seems to care about him outside of what he can do to bolster someone else‘s image and the servants seems to be the people in the driver’s seat. Meghan and Archie aside, he needs to stay away for his own sake.

    • bluemoonhorse says:

      Right now I imagine M&H laughing their heads off at the idea. These courtiers are going be out of a job very soon as Petty Betty is on the cusp of disappearing from public life and the royal from any relevancy. Sad.

    • 809Matriarch says:

      And as much as the press despise Meghan, they would eat Harry alive if he abandoned her and Archie for the trappings of royalty. All of his valor from his military days would be ridiculed. He would never live it down.

  7. Case says:

    They need to get a grip. I can’t imagine Harry EVER considering leaving his family that he’s so proud of to go back to that toxic environment.

  8. Priscila says:

    Okay, so they complain about receiving emails at 5a.m and about having to show up some results from one week to the other, and now they are hard working staff?


    They are getting bold. They are smearing Harry openly, not as a misguided fool. They are saying they do not want neither Meghan nor Archie to come back.

    Is this a joke?

    No! RF fucking know we will be so caught up in this absurd drama they are spining because of one mildly positive book coming out when possibly four more negative are also being sold and I know believe tehy truly expect us to forget about Andrew.

    I say that because this truly bizarre and unhinged articles came out after Friday, when documents started getting unsealed.

    If Charles even think he could convince Harry before…

    • Bella DuPont says:

      It’s still possible. But he would have to clean house completely and get rid of all the spiders (with their cobwebs), as well as all the rottweilers and vipers. At the moment, the place feels like a jungle, teeming with dangerous, poisonous creatures and I doubt he has the balls to take on such a task.

      PS: Also, did you notice this courtier felt the need to explain their name for the book?
      “It’s being called Finding Me-dom because Meghan is seen as the driving force behind everything – including the book. The ‘me’ is for Meghan but also works as she is the dominant one in the relationship.””

      Just how f-cking thick do you have to be to work for these people? To the point where they feel they need to explain a name that a 4 year old child could come up with.

      Palace employment requirements: Maximum IQ score: 50

      • Jay says:

        Yes, Bella, you just know somebody stayed up all night with a rhyming dictionary to come up with “Finding Me-dom” – I wonder if it’s the same genius who was trying to make “Me-ghan” a thing? My God, these idiots.

  9. Snappyfish says:

    First I think this is BS. I have always believed the Sussexes will return when Charles is on the throne & they will be welcomed & (hopefully) allowed to shine as he will need all the help he can get. Secondly, this is all deflection so we forget about that little pedophilia issue that is Andrew.

    • Yup, Me says:

      By the time Charles is on the throne, they will have been free and establishing themselves outside of the royal family for some time. What possible benefit could there be to Harry and Meghan to go backwards and help out in a toxic environment that needs them more than they need it?

      Some people dump their a&&hole exes and don’t backslide with hookups. They move on and create happy new lives.

    • S808 says:

      I don’t see the point in them returning for Charles’ reign. Charles knows he’ll need them and still did nothing to help them. That’s on him. Their nonprofit will be up and running and they will have likely carved out a life for themselves here in the States by the time he becomes king. And they’d have to turn around and leave again once William ascends to the throne (cause there’s no way the Sussexes are working for him) and it’s been made more than obvious now that Harry must come alone— if at all. No way in the world would Harry subject Meghan to this abuse again.

    • GuestWho says:

      I don’t think they’ll return to full time duties even then. They may come back more to visit, because they might feel its safer. If they come back when Charles is on the throne, then what do they do when Wills takes over after Charles? They’d be back between a rock and a hard place under Billy the Basher’s reign. They need to separate themselves professionally forever.

      • Snappyfish says:

        I agree with most of your points. But they had the chance to walk away for good. Take no money from Charles (they do) & give up their HRHs (they didn’t). Harry is a blood Prince. I guess I am being optimistic. w/Charles on the throne, Will becomes POW & will have his “due” & he shouldn’t care what his brother & sister in law do & should understand they can only help him (I know, I’m being optimistic) When he is King he also shouldn’t care & should want his brother to be happy. (Ok I’m beginning to upset myself)

      • notasugarhere says:

        I never buy it when someone claiming to like the Sussexes demands they give up their HRH and titles completely. What is the obsession with giving up the HRH? Beatrice and Eugenie aren’t being called on to give up theirs. Nor is pedo Andrew or the Kents.

        It is along the lines of people demanding, ‘Oh if they really meant it, they’d give up their security’.

        White nationalists are in prison for trying to kill Harry as a race traitor. A tumblr obsessive traveled to NYC, got within feet of Meghan, and was plotting online to ‘rip off her fake baby pillow’.

        Them walking away doesn’t decrease the number of people who are actively trying to kill them. It only makes it more likely those obsessives will be successful.

      • ArtHistorian says:

        An HRH is not dependent on working for the BRF. There are plenty of HRHs that don’t represent the Crown.

      • GuestWho says:

        @Notasugarhere – I find it seriously disingenuous when people say they should give up taking Charles money for security. They have extraordinary security needs that cannot be met by a run-of-the-mill security company. And that’s not just because of the Nazi’s who threatened Harry, but because of his military service and his proximity to the crown. It’s ridiculous and cruel. And if my dad was an almost billionaire, I’d take his money to help out too if I needed it.

        @Snappyfish – Will is never going to support his brother’s happiness, because Will is not happy and doesn’t think anyone else should be either regardless of his position within the firm. Add to that that, apparently, Will thinks his “due” is unquestioning subservience…he won’t accept anything less, especially from Meghan – and she doesn’t appear to be the kind of woman who would offer it. Hopefully, he’ll never get to be king.

      • Becks1 says:

        Charles should pay for their security because they need security due to who Harry is (son of the future king) and how poorly Charles handled the past two years. Maybe if he had put a stop to the smear campaign years ago, there wouldn’t be an attempt to prove that Meghan was never pregnant or whatever.

      • HeyJude says:

        @snappyfish Take no money (which is used for security) when Harry literally had to be pulled out of combat because of a bounty on his head once.

        When his Aunt was nearly kidnapped in the 1970s by a gunman who shot 4 different people in the attempt.

        When the Queen herself was threatened by a Buckingham Palace intruder on multiple occasions during one of which the intruder made it to her room and found her sleeping in her bed.

        When Harry’s great-uncle Lord Mountbatten was murdered, blown up by a bomb by the IRA whilst fishing with his grandchildren.

        And when Harry’s mother herself was slain in the streets of Paris without sufficient security.

        …Really? He deserves his father’s money for this. He didn’t ask to be born and have this security burden placed upon him.

    • Kumquat says:

      I could theoretically believe Charles would welcome them back but I still don’t think the Sussexes would actually return. There’s no guarantee Charles would live as long as the Mean Queen and then what? Can you imagine H & M & A living under a King Willie? What a nightmare.

    • notasugarhere says:

      Why on earth would they return for 10 years, only to be attacked again once William is on the throne? Or attacked constantly by the W&K courtiers, whether they are working royals or not?

      Their best move was leaving now, when it was clear Charles wasn’t going to stand up against QEII or his abusive elder son William. If Charles wants to try to make amends? He can start by ensuring he leaves millions to Harry and any Sussex grandchildren, instead of letting all the private wealth go to William’s line.

      • BayTampaBay says:

        There is no reason for the Sussexes to come back. Harassment from the tabloids would only get worse if that is possible to believe.

        What I do not get is why the BRF and their staff just did not ignore the Scobie book and say “no comment”. Commenting to the tabloids is just feeding the frenzy and driving sales of Finding Freedom.

      • Becks1 says:

        @Bay – I don’t get that either. there are so many books written about the royals, but THIS is the one that has the courtiers et al in a frenzy. It’s just driving up interest in the book and honestly makes me think the book is more fact than fiction.

        Its like with the Rose Who? rumors. Had they never responded to the initial story about the falling out etc, it prob would have died on its own. But instead it turned into a mess.

      • BayTampaBay says:


        From the movie “The Queen”:

        Tony Blair: Someone needs to save these people from themselves.

        The Book: I don’t understand why the Lady Colin Campbell book did not get more coverage in the tabloids as the the type of rumors presented in her book are right up the tabloid’s alley.

        Rose Who?: I think much has gone on between the Norfolk Turnip Toffs and the Cambridges that we do not know and never will know. I think Rose or a Turnip Toff leaked the original story about the affair and “phase-out”. William, by responding, was attempting damage control and trying to rebuild bridges with the Toffs not his adoring public.

      • windyriver says:

        Not hard to understand why they’re in an uproar. Don’t know much about Carolyn Durand, but Omid has some actual journalistic chops and isn’t the typical RR suck up toeing the party line. Because of that, he’s had some special access to the Sussexes – he was one of the few invited to Meghan’s last official royal event, meeting with a group of Commonwealth scholars. And if, as we theorized, Meghan and Harry okay’d some of their closest friends speaking with Omid and Carolyn for this book, it would be because they expected them to report more or less accurately on what they were told.

        What the powers that be are so afraid of, is the truth, or a much closer approximation of the truth than anyone has put out with the six variations of tights gate, and the four different versions of tiara/Kelly gate, etc. They had no control over what the book contains, and it’s being published worldwide simultaneously in multiple languages.

        Maybe just ignoring the book would’ve been a better course. But as we’ve seen, despite “don’t complain, don’t explain”, that just isn’t their style.

      • HeyJude says:

        @BayTampaBay exactly. “Never complain and never explain” motto by the palaces has very suddenly turned into “always complain and over explain” for some reason conveniently when the first black lady showed up.

        Weird how that happened.

    • fluffy_bunny says:

      That’s never happening at this point. The BRF has gone too far and allowed to much smearing of M&H. At this point if they never hear another word from Harry I won’t be too surprised. I thought if Petty Betty or Phil kick it and it was safe to travel that Harry might go back for all of the burial and coronation but if Harry tells them to fuck themselves I wouldn’t blame him. They’re toxic as fuck.

      • Becks1 says:

        Agreed – the past 6 months have probably just confirmed for Harry that he made the right choice. Even if the Sussexes divorce down the line for whatever reason, Harry is not going back to being a working royal. He’s done.

  10. Osty says:

    Ladies and gentlemen this is an example red carpet welcome Meghan got. At this point the idiots should just stop talking cos their numerous explanation is making them look bad ( not to the idiots though) but to sane people.
    Also for a book that is laughed at they sure do talk about it a lot . They r the same creatures who were happy the drama has left but has spent everyday talking about said drama

    • Jegede says:


      Before the book was out, they ran to The Sunday Times, in late June all “we’re ignoring the noise/we’re not going to be commenting”, to almost hysterical reactions to every chapter.😄😄

    • Sarah says:

      LOOK AT US NOT CARING! Lalala.

      Sure Jan.

  11. bluemoonhorse says:

    I’m tired of these courtiers. They need to be named. Period.

    • AL says:

      Probably a dumb question but who the heck are all these people and why does it seem like the tail is wagging the dog? No corporation would function with all the admins and downline people running their mouths to media and ordering the bosses around – why not strip away the courtier system and just operate as a functioning company? If it’s really just to have people to say the things you’re too lame to say in public or do the bullying for you so you have plausible deniability, NO ONE would invest in a company like that. I realize I’m an American outsider but geesh – any corporation like that would be bankrupt.

      • bluemoonhorse says:

        Aristo stiffs mostly is all I can figure out. Hereditary positions they get (i.e. Rose’s husband). And hired folks who think that standing next to royalty means they aren’t working folk who should be fired.

        Betty has a long history of hiring idiots. I guess I’m the only one who remembers the other scandals about her staff selling letters, running their mouth off, writing tell-all books, allowing people to sit on the queen’s bed.

        The British Royals have shown for decades how stupid they are.

      • BayTampaBay says:

        I think compensation is involved.

        I am not saying that everyone who works for the BRF are leaking stories for money but I bet that if you have a long “off-the-record” conversation with some RR from the Daily Mail your might find your weekend at the Ritz London comped or your dinner at the most expensive hard to get a table in restaurant in London comped to your delightful surprise.

  12. STRIPE says:

    Well, at least they’re saying it out loud now.

    At his point, even of H&M were to divorce, would he go back even then? I doubt it based on the treatment they’re receiving.

    • lucy2 says:

      I was just thinking the same – he’s not going back, no matter what. They showed him who they are, what they care about, and how they feel about him, and he walked away.

      I hope at some point he flat out says that.

      • Kumquat says:

        At this point I figure the purpose of statements that “Harry and Harry ONLY will be welcomed back” are just sad, bitchy slaps at Meghan. They MUST know that it’s impossible for the very cruelty that drove the Sussexes away to somehow magically bring Harry back.

      • BayTampaBay says:

        I do not think that Harry will make any statement regarding his future plans until the “one year review” is due. The he will either not show up for the review meeting and/ or make a statement that he is NOT coming back.

    • Otaku fairy says:

      They really can’t help but show how awful they were, and how right the Sussexes were to want to distance themselves.

    • fluffy_bunny says:

      I don’t think we’ll see H&M divorce because they seem to be the type that what doesn’t kill them makes them stronger. They might also be trauma bonded because of all of this bullshit. Or just as a sheer FU to all of the BRF and the press that they never ever would think about divorce. They might quietly live apart if it comes to that but I bet they would never admit to defeat.

  13. Noki says:

    The only way someone or people who are suppose to be ‘under’ your orders can run amok is because you are too lazy to care or they have something over you. Clearly the vipers know where all the bodies are burried.

  14. ABritGuest says:

    This narrative of only Harry being welcomed back has been repeated across a few different outlets for a while now. Even Piers’ wife had a piece in Telegraph this weekend saying the same. It’s disgusting how they erase Archie especially considering Harry has said he wanted children for a long time.

    If none of the royals push back on this in the way they know how, then I hope in a few months we don’t get those ridiculous stories we had last Christmas about how the family miss Archie& want to see him. The lack of care for Meghan or his wellbeing whilst Meghan was pregnant and then with this angle of Harry alone returning, suggests Harry’s family really doesn’t care about Archie.

    • Ginger says:

      I don’t see them going back for Trooping or Christmas for a while. But of course we will see countless articles on how the RF desperately wants to see Archie. I’m sure they have only met Archie once, maybe twice and that’s it.
      We all saw how Kate acted towards Meghan and Archie at the polo match. For someone who claims to be all about new Moms and young kids, she really did ignore them.

    • Bella DuPont says:

      This is simply ‘Windrush – Royal version’.

      • notasugarhere says:

        The Windsor Windrush

      • mynameispearl says:

        Jesus. You can call this a lot, but to compare it to the Windrush scandal is absolutely ridiculous.

      • notasugarhere says:

        It makes sense to me, given the parallels of history, abuse, and racism. What was done to Meghan, what continues to be done to Meghan and Archie, is the royal microcosm version.

      • BayTampaBay says:

        @mynameispearl – I agree with you. At the end of the day the BRF is really not that important but the victims of the Windrush Scandal are VERY important as in the abuse of power by the Home Office.

      • Bella DuPont says:

        @ Nota

        “The Windsor Windrush” is absolutely perfect, thanks!

        @ BayTB & Mynameispearl

        I see where you’re coming from, if you’re viewing it as what was done to one individual. But don’t forget that meghan is not just an individual. She was and is a symbol to a lot of girls and people of colour around the world.

        The way I see it, this wasn’t just driving some unwanted relative away. Her treatment, the messaging around it and the narrative, has been a very loud, clear message to all people of colour around the world, saying: “You are beneath us. And this is what will happen when you forget your place. Regardless of your efforts and/or contributions to the building of this place, you will be stripped of your dignity and driven away.”

        So yeah, The Windsor Windrush just about sums it up for me, personally.

      • BnLurkN4eva says:

        I completely agree with this. Since the beginning I’ve looked beyond Meghan and recognized what Meghan represents. With every racist slights and abuse the BRF and BM have been sending a message to all POC that they are superior to all and POC doesn’t belong in the ranks and are only allowed limited roles in their world. The treatment of Meghan has been an eradication on a much larger scale than Meghan alone.

      • smlstrs says:

        Wow, @BnLurkN4eva – that makes the behavior at that final event – a Commonwealth event no less – even more disturbing. The most important thing to the future-futures, over family, professionalism, etc., was to to snub Meghan and everything she represents and those to look up or even were just watching.

      • sunny says:

        The accuracy of this comment- my god. The royals truly dislike what Meghan represents and as much as it is about her class and being American, it is mostly about her race. You can tell that in how the press and the British royals have all but dismissed Archie.

        I’m not surprised the royals and the courtiers are telling on themselves but I am positively shocked they are saying the quiet part loudly now.

    • A says:

      This is how you know that they’re priming the next narrative in the press. They’re hoping that Harry comes back, alone, and then they can start up with the endless ream of stories about how Meghan is a horrible human being, and how she’s done Harry so wrong, by marrying him, having his child, and then keeping that child away from Harry. They want to force him to return on his own, without his family, and then they will blame Meghan for keeping Harry away from his son etc.

  15. Frida_K says:

    Well, there you go! Harry just needs to divorce Meghan and come right back to England and be a gooseberry for the rest of his life!

    I’m sure that the instant he reads this news–maybe helpful Will can send him an excerpt!–he’ll smack himself on the forehead, say “I should have realised!” and then he will get right on a plane and come right back to Bitter Betty and the Vipers!

    Uh, not really.

    It is hard to believe that the courtiers actually think that this would ever happen, but it sounds like that is just what they think.

    The crazy is strong with those people, isn’t it?

    • Jay says:

      It’s even more frightening if this is such a dominant view within the palace, that they don’t see how crazed it looks to everyone else!

      I laughed at the image of Harry getting a packet of press cuttings from his dear brother.

    • notasugarhere says:

      There’s a creepy version being put forward by obsessive Kate stans. They want Harry to leave Meghan, grab Archie, and bring him ‘home’ so he can be raised by Kate. You know, Harry’s real, wife-of-his-heart.

      • BayTampaBay says:

        There is even a creepier version out there in cyberspace that Meghan is an unfit mother and is abusing through Archie through neglect.

      • Olenna says:

        Those Kween stans seem mentally and emotionally stunted, and trying real hard to live vicariously through her. Recently, I saw a TL that was gushing with romantic nonsense about how every man Kween meets at public engagements is enamored with her. Mind you, the photos they posted showed men who appear to be smiling politely at her, not beaming with lust or lurv. They see what they want to see, as they do with the Sussexes.

  16. Belli says:


    So without Archie.

    Which (again) pulls back the veil that it’s anything other than racism. Even if the smears they put out about Meghan being an evil person were true, Archie is an innocent baby. Why would he not be welcomed back?

    • 809Matriarch says:

      I saw a tweet from a Mugzit person saying that yes, Archie was cute – BUT – he was still the “spawn of satan”.

      I kid you not. I could not believe my eyes.

      • MerlinsMom1018 says:

        Archie, the spawn of satan????
        My 3 grown daughters are 😁

      • LaraW" says:

        No doubt, these people also believe that ovarian cysts are caused by sex with demons. I’m sure Archie as satan spawn is a logical conclusion.

  17. Lisa says:

    They are quite bold and disgusting thinking that Harrybwould abandon his wife and family to be welcomed back into that vipers nest. I am sure he has some choice words for them.

  18. AnnaKist says:

    The courtiers running things at the castle now, are they? Sounds like the lunatics taking over the asylum. Why are they being allowed to leak to the media? Jeez, the BRF needs to relinquish its crown. Bury the whole idea and put concrete on top.

  19. Merricat says:

    Harry was never coming back anyway, but there’s no better way to bind him to his wife and child than by attempting to dismiss them. These tabloid hacks are not the brightest.

    • BayTampaBay says:

      Actually, the tabloid hacks are extremely smart as they are catering to their commentariat to generate revenue. Andrew Morton know all he is saying is BS but he is going to say what the Daily Mail is willing to pay him to say.

      OTOH, Piers Morgan is stupid as he actually believes everything that comes out of his own mouth.

  20. KellyRyan says:

  21. Osty says:

    If this is how they are behaving about a book written by a third party, what would they do if Meghan writes her own autobiography (fingers crossed)

  22. Jay says:

    Wow, all these stories just prove how toxic and insular this nest of viper’s really is! Also how racist: It’s pretty clear that they view Meghan and Archie as less than human, that Harry could somehow just leave them behind and move back into a bachelor pad at KP, and go back to being the uncomfortable third wheel at events with the Cambridges.

    It’s…an astoundingly low level of self-awareness, and reveals so much more than they ever intended about these courtiers’ own values and also how little they seem to know Harry.

  24. A says:

    What a really appalling thing to say.
    Sarah Ferguson is still happily wandering around palaces but Meghan Markle is the wife that needs to be abandoned in the proverbial wilderness. And their child. Unreal. The unrepentant racism really puts the whole push for the Commonwealth in a different light, doesn’t it?

  25. Ariel says:

    Liz of House Petty- let’s see, she didn’t attend her son’s second wedding b/c she’s head of a “church” and it wouldn’t be right. Said church was also against divorce until quite recently.
    And these are the people, these “devout” people, are pushing for a man to abandon his wife and family.
    The royal family is just white trash with money, to quote an old country song,

    • notasugarhere says:

      A religion that was founded because a randy king wanted to divorce his wife to marry his mistress no less.

  26. lanne says:

    If the palace doesn’t speak out against this story, then it’s proof that Meghan never had a chance. This is about as vile and vicious a story as can be. Telling a husband he has to abandon his wife and child in order to be welcomed back? So now they’re being openly racist? No more dog whistles? What about this commonwealth that’s so important to them? What about their global image? Again, I feel so bad for Prince Harry. To learn your family doesn’t love you unless you do exactly what they say. Who on earth would return to something so toxic?

    • Prayer Warrior says:

      All Commonwealth countries (well, Canada certainly does; I think we all do) send money to support the BRF. I think it’s about $1.00 per annum per person, maybe $1.50 per person with the exchange rate. Nevertheless, it’s millions of dollars/pounds sent to England every year to support our Queen….I believe when she dies, we’ll start negotiating to rid ourselves of that particular financial burden because we need the money our own damn selves. So we’ll negotiate w/Charles to either reduce or revoke, and I’ll bet 100 nickles we won’t be led by monarchists when Wee Willy Winkle ascends to the throne, if there even is a monarchy by then. Not saying anything when Archie was compared to a chimp was THE LAST STRAW for me…ALL respect dead when they didn’t speak up, and it’s too late now. I think Willy wants to be normal, does he not? Rich and aristocratically ‘normal’, not normal ‘work to eat and pay your bills’ normal. I think he’ll get his wish; I hope he gets his wish. He is certainly working hard to crash the monarchy; harder than he’s worked at anything, ever, as far as I can tell……

      • notasugarhere says:

        The monarchy costs 600 million a year, with costs hidden in other budgets like security, diplomatic budget, etc. The 69 pence or 1CAD guesstimates are from the pro-monarchy folks.

        And that’s just regular annual costs. Nearly 400 million additional was voted in a few years ago, to restore Buckingham Palace. No investigation into what the Queen did with the millions paid through the decades specifically for BP upkeep. Another 80 million has been proposed to restore Charles’s vanity home, Clarence House.

      • BayTampaBay says:

        @nota – I thought Clarence House was completely remodeled right after the Queen Mother died specifically for Charles.

      • Lady D says:

        Yet they make Harry and Meghan pay back the $2.3 spent on renovations to their home. wth?

  29. margedebarge says:

    They will never go back in any long-term way. They’ll probably pop up for QE’s funeral when the time comes. Maybe Philip’s. Maybe Charles’. And that’s just Harry. Whether Meghan would come along, I’m not sure. I highly doubt they would ever bring Archie over in any kind of public capacity.

    • BayTampaBay says:

      I highly doubt Harry would come without Meghan as that would just give to much fodder for fire to the tabloids.

  30. 10KTurtle says:

    Every time I see a quote from these “insiders,” I feel like that person has completely forgotten that Archie exists. It’s as if all of their sh**** fantasies about what happened or should happen are about a childless couple.

  31. LP says:

    “ The book accuses royal staff ­– including some who have decades of service – of acting like untrustworthy ‘vipers’ during Megxit.” Sooooooo……they’re just causally admitting many of these same courtiers were around during Diana’s tenure..? And they wonder why Harry was ready to give them the finger with both hands?? No prizes for intellect in the place, clearly!

  32. Kitten says:

    “They said Meghan should never come back because she’s awful but Harry can come back if he abandons his wife and child.”

    That’s the official bottom line for everyone who would rather sacrifice a good, decent, innocent woman and her son than deal with the fact Andrew was involved in sex-trafficking innocent girls.

    • BayTampaBay says:

      I think the “vipers” believe that if they can “get rid of Meghan” they will be able to manipulate Harry. Does not seem like they know Harry very well.

      • Liz version 700 says:

        No kidding. Harry is the one they should be afraid of, he seems fine with bringing them all down if they don’t leave his family alone. No one knows him at all and I can’t help but wonder if that was always the case.

      • Dee Kay says:

        I really agree with this. It is shocking how Harry is depicted as having zero agency in this whole matter. Like he was “lured away” by a biracial Black American divorced actress, and when he comes to his senses, he will be “allowed to return” solo. Like, WHAT?! Harry is a grown man who has made his distaste for the life he was born into clear, in subtle and recently quite unsubtle ways. He does not come across in any of his speeches or interviews as someone who is uncertain about his own mind and heart. It seems to me not only the courtiers, but his own grandmother, father, and brother, have discounted Harry’s thoughts and feelings and wishes and dreams for a long long time. Harry is now finished with trying to please all of them while never been seen. He found a life partner who loves and respects him and believes in him and is willing to take huge risks for him and with him to build a happy, productive life for themselves. That was literally all that Harry needed to finally break away from an institution and family that was intent on choking the life out of him.

      • A says:

        @Dee Kay, I think the narrative makes them feel better, because the alternative is that Harry, a person who they thought and expected would be “one of them”, as in could be counted on to remain as racist and snobby as they all are, is not actually one of them. And they would rather live in a world where someone like them has been hoodwinked into wokeness, than contend with the fact that one of their own people, a person they expected would remain complicit in the racism they exhibit, is holding them accountable for a change. Because Harry, by birth and his privilege, is not someone they can simply brush off and ignore.

      • Dee Kay says:

        @A: I agree with your take. Their expectations were that Harry would never question the role he was given and would be happy to serve the tiny, constrained, quiet role they had reserved for “the spare.” Harry turning out to be a huge problem for the BRF reminds me of how the courtiers despised Diana. There is a Netflix documentary abt the BRF, maybe four or five years old, in which courtiers tear Diana to shreds essentially for refusing to fall in line at every turn. I was shocked at how viciously they spoke of her, given she was a f–king Princess and HRH and the mother of the future King and oh yeah btw hugely enormously world famous and loved. But the way they are treating and speaking of Harry now makes me see that they regard Harry as Diana Part II. Which, for fans of Diana, makes Harry even more wonderful and worthy of fandom and interest. (But the courtiers never could reckon with how Diana being different, and NOT falling in line all the time, was precisely what made her fascinating to billions!!)

  33. Lucy says:

    I mean. The Royal family is clearly choosing *employees * over Harry and his family.

  34. Deanne says:

    As ridiculous as the supposed courtiers in the know are, this is an idiotic suggestion and I don’t believe that anyone in the RF or around them actually thinks that Harry would ever dump his wife and child to head back into the fold. These stupid stories are just that. Stupid stories from the Daily Mail. They just pull this garbage out of their asses to keep people reading. The situation with the pandemic has clearly impacted Harry’s plans for himself and his family, but only a complete fool would think he’d choose the RF over them.

    I can just imagine how guilty William feels about the whole mess he instigated against his brother. He destroyed PHarry. He demolished the reputation of his brother’s family. I don’t think William can still sleep at night. All this hate, jealousy and betrayal eat at his very core. He won’t be able to live it down. He has compromised his relationship with his brother and has conducted himself shamelessly like a bully in the world stage with his complicit approval of the British media and courtiers to ceaselessly persecute and intimidate his brother and his family. Someone said that “it is not the crown to make you a king it is what you have in your soul.“.

    • S808 says:

      He’s genuinely a horrible person from where I’m standing but he’s also a servant to the tabloids now and forever. His life has not been his own for a while but now it truly never will be imo.

    • MerlinsMom1018 says:

      I believe William sleeps very VERY well at night and has no guilt whatsoever.

      • Chrissy says:

        I agree. I don’t think he’s capable of feeling guilty. He feels emboldened because his every malicious/ insane thought is being publicized, and given his position as FFK, is being seen as authorized by the BRF. This is a person (I won’t call him a man) who has never been held accountable for anything in his life and since he hasn’t received any pushback from his superiors, Petty Betty or Hands-Off Charlie, his words appear as being sanction by the BRF. He needs to be taken down a peg or ten – his peccadilloes need to be publicized by a reputable source without interference from the Firm. I hope Harry, Meghan and Archie continue to thrive and live their best lives despite the insane smearing and BS being aimed at them from across the Atlantic. (rant over)

    • MsIam says:

      William feeling guilty? Did you not read how funny he thought it was about that Uber driver being frisked down after he delivered food to W&K? Does that sound like a person who cares about people enough to feel guilty? Also, his pal/mouthpiece Dan Wootton is claiming that William conspired with Angela Kelly to deny Meghan access to the Royal Collection jewelry. Did you see any denial issued from KP about that? But they fell all over themselves to “clarify“ hem/tights/cry-gate. So I’m going to assume you are being facetious @Marivic.

    • notasugarhere says:

      Harry has not been destroyed. He is living happily ever after with his wife and son in another country, free from his family of abusers. He’s still running his private charity entities like Sentebale and InvictusGames while promoting other new ventures like Travalyst. AFAIK he’s still working with Oprah on a documentary series about mental health.

    • BnLurkN4eva says:

      @ Marivic you are assigning your conscience to William. I don’t see any evidence that William is capable of such feelings. He’s been taught from birth to consider himself above everyone including his own brother. He believes it’s his due to have everyone bow and scrape and throw themselves under the cart to improve his standing. Harry was meant to place him (William) above himself, his wife and child and that he refused filled William with rage. Those are the feelings he’s having, I think and unfortunately, there’s no one in his life who can check him so he will never believe otherwise.

  37. Valiantly Varnished says:

    These people are so f-cking gross. “Yes we will welcome him back. As long as he abandons his wife and son.” Can you imagine fixing your mouth to say those words with no sense of shame??

    Since when does a Prince of England, grandson of the Queen and son of the next King need the palace couriers to tell him under what conditions he is welcome? That is outrageous.

  39. Traci says:

    All this drama and the BRF still hasn’t said one word to defend or speak on behalf of their family members – which includes H/M. They are running buck wild because the only person (2 people) in the family who can shut it down, won’t.

    I saw Lady Colin Campbell a few years ago on I’m a Celebrity Get me out of here. Brought a number of people to tears with her personal attacks. I wouldn’t listen to a word she has to say on ANYTHING. In my opinion, Disorder level Narcissist and requires treatment.

    • Cari says:

      She claims her mother was a narcissistic mother.

    • A says:

      @Celeste, she’s a weird egg, Lady Colin Campbell. And that’s the nicest, mildest thing I can say for her. I do think that some of her views have value, because for all she says and does, she’s very much an outsider looking in, and she has a level of perspective thanks to that that can be very critical in some ways that I do agree with. I think that her book on the Queen Mother, while it had a ton of questionable factual assertions, did have a fairly accurate read on the QM’s personality itself.

      But she asserts herself, and her views, in a way that I don’t think is quite right. She posits opinions and gossip as facts, rather than what they really are. And she is very very cruel towards people, but also very calculated in her cruelty. She writes in some of the vilest, most hurtful things, but sandwiches it between paragraphs of glowing good praise for her subject. I don’t doubt that she doesn’t hold both of those opinions, conflicting as they might be, but I also think she’s very calculated in how she presents her opinions so that she can shield herself from criticism or bias, and it’s all very obvious.

  41. L4frimaire says:

    I just don’t see the point of this whole line. Basically they are saying that Harry’s family is not welcome. That is utterly disgusting and what is the point? They keep showing why they left. There is this outsize anger toward the Sussexes that was there way before they left the UK. It seems they resented them for a myriad of reasons but it seems to stem from both jealousy and racial resentment and sexism. I still have not heard why exactly they need Harry back and why they feel delegitimizing his family will make him want to go back to that snake pit. Those people really have their head so far up their own ass, they don’t hear how vicious and nasty they sound. What message does this send to U.K. citizens of color or people with mixed- race families? At the same time, there is practically a news blackout on Andrew. They really are a circular firing squad.

  42. MCG says:

    This story is soooo incredibly gross. I mean, we knew that this what they really meant but the fact that it is basically laid out clear as day in black and white, makes my stomach turn.

  43. bluerun1 says:

    Frankly, if I were Megan and Harry, I would hope the Palace keeps releasing “statements” because it just makes the royals and the whole establishment look so terrible. Like, H and M don’t even need to lift a finger, just let them keep digging their hole with each new ~statement and ~insider piece. Good grief, they’re (H and M) so much better away from all of that!

  44. Jaded says:

    I doubt Harry has had anything to do with his brother since he and Meghan and Archie decamped. That relationship is forever severed, as is his once friendly bond with Kate. He probably has minimal contact with his father who merely flapped his hands and faffed around during the whole mess. As far as Camilla, no contact either due to her deliberately bitchy smirk and comment “of course” when asked if she’ll miss Harry and Meghan. Because the Queen et al sanctioned the ROTA/courtier smearing, leaking and foundation shenanigans, there’s probably zero contact there either. When you can’t even trust your own family then it’s time to get out of Dodge and stay out of Dodge, to hell with them and their sordid, corrupt behaviour.

  45. Gucci Choi says:

    What kind of a lunatic actually says out loud that someone in what appears to be a happy marriage and with a child needs to abandon wife and child and return ‘home’??!! Return to what, anyway?? The entire RF is delusional and inbred, and generations of absolute non-accountability have deformed their ethics, values, and ability (and willingness) to see beyond their own interests. Case in point: Andrew, that useless snivelling sh@tsack. I truly hope he burns, is humiliated to the max, and his dear old mum lives to see and hear all of it as her beloved youngest spawn goes down in infamy. As a Canadian, I simply cannot believe what the British will accept/tolerate/endure – all that tax payer’s money going towards an organization that doesn’t give a rat’s ass about ‘the beloved people’. (Never mind that they voted for BoJo the Buffoon. Then again, enough in the US happily voted for Trump, so there’s that!)

It is massively disturbing that they remain silent on that issue but feel free to slander and make racist comments about a woman who has done nothing wrong. Very twisted values.

    I don’t suppose any of the RF will be planning any foreign tours when this pandemic is over. How could they avoid questions about the Sussexes? To be having this reaction during the entire BLM worldwide protests shows the RF is completely out of touch. They are the perfect royal family for Brexit Britain. Old, insular, and white. What celebrities of color will want to suck up to them now? They are making themselves as toxic as the Trumps, and for the same audience. No celebrity with mainstream appeal wants to be seen next to Trump. Will that soon be the case for the British RF? They are damaging their worldwide prestige through the abuse of the Sussexes and the coddling of Prince Andrew.

    • lanne says:

      Also, the courtiers freak out just makes the value of the Sussexes story increase. They can make 100 million dollars just by selling their story. I’ve said before that racism makes people stupid. The RF and courtiers are the BM are proof. They chased away their cash cow that could have kept the royal rota employed for decades, and they’ve made themselves the villains in the story. The less the Cambridge’s do, and the more the Sussexes do, the less relevant with RF will appear. Already neo Nazis are singing god save the Queen at protests. Charles is shitting away his reign before it even begins.

    Dear palace courtiers ( and your BRF bosses):

    You are as dumb as hell. You are apparently stuck in a 90s time wrap, thinking the the best way to handle bad perceptions of the House of Windsor of having a divorce by royal or press decree. That was the playbook for Charles and Diana and Andrew and Sarah. Unfortunately for you, this is a new century with new attitudes and new means for expressing opinions – social media. Twitter and such are the instruments used by people to pushback on nonsense grinned up by the media minions. Not everyone buys the BS and bring receipts when they come for you. When the Rotten Rota shut down their social media accounts because their own heat they fired up, people know they got them.

    You vipers/courtiers are really hit dogs hollering and you sound like Scooby Doo running from a fake ghost. Your actions have damaged the royal house and the institution you hold dear at the expense of others. If push comes to shove the Windsors may fire you; but you probably have so much dirt you’ re using it as job security. You both deserve each other and don’ t assume you’re safe. Finding Freedom may be the catalyst that shutters the House of Windsor. This time you may reap what you sow.

In their rush to attack Harry they end up exposing themselves and their bigotry. The DM articles are merely making more people curious and thus encouraging haters to buy it.

    So, I did a bad thing. Or maybe it’s a good thing. But I spent the money (eurgh) and I bought myself a Kindle version of LCC’s book. I’m still working my way through it, but from what I’ve read so far, it’s pretty clear that this lady has 1) no scoops to speak of, and 2) is essentially working as a mouthpiece for the palace aides and the royals, whose opinions and gossip she repeats in the books as “fact” and doesn’t bother to challenge in any depth.

    So far, the highlights have been:

    - asserting that Piers Morgan is “someone who would have kept [Meghan's] confidences” even though he’s “conservative” in his views

    - a terribly hyped up, completely fake story about Meghan at Charles’ 70th birthday garden party, where she apparently told Harry, “Let’s leave, this is boring. We’ve already made an appearance and been here for 10 minutes, so let’s just go.” This interaction was relayed to the author from a source who claims to have been there and claims to have “overheard” this happening. This interaction was also enough for both the author and this source to conclude that Meghan wasn’t suited for royal life. Literally, they found this SO ALARMING, it’s hysterical.

    - multiple lines and pages devoted to how the racism that Meghan faced “isn’t actually that bad you guys” and how the way the courtiers behaved “totally didn’t have anything to do with racism.” All this from a white lady descended from a family of rich, colonial landowners in Jamaica.

    - at one point she straight up says, “There is no real racism in Britain, because such discrimination is illegal.”

    - a story about how Harry pretended to date under a fake identity and kind of reverse-catfished a girl who was a friend of one of the author’s sons

    - at one point she talks about how the aides refer to Harry as “blow job Harry” who must clearly not be in his right mind, because the sex he’s getting from Meghan is so good that he’s not thinking straight

    - she also brags about how she’s “a public figure” who gets talked about in the tabloids “a bit more than most other people” so she knows how it can be, but also how her “unique position” allows her to have her finger on the pulse of public opinion and the royal behind-the-scenes opinion, and how Harry’s rep has taken a tumble in both respects, to the point where people are calling him “p****-whipped” etc. She presents this as an authentic and somehow valuable opinion on the part of the people, without realizing how bad it makes everyone look.

    - apparently, Meghan and Harry decided to take revenge on Eugenie for “stealing their thunder” by wearing the tiara that Meghan wanted to wear for her wedding (a story that’s fake as we all know), by spending Eugenie’s wedding reception going around to people, one by one, and telling them that she’s pregnant.

    I’m still working my way through it, and I’m skipping back and forth and not going through some parts too closely, but from what I can tell, a lot of it is just her repeating gossip she’s heard from her friends in the aristocratic circle as if they’re fact, and failing to corroborate or fact check them. She had one scoop in the 90s with Diana, and she somehow thinks that this makes her an authority in this field, lmao. It’s pretty funny going through her stuff and picking out where she’s got it all wrong and knowing for a fact what happened.

      Haha what a public service!! I admire your persevering read.
      Hope your brain hasn’t crawled out of your skull to cry after you read all this drivel.

      Lcc, that old daft senile hag!!!

        Thanks for taking one for the team! This is why not even the royal reporters are touching this book. She’s basically used gossip from people (Megxit groups) online, and every “gossip” there is easily disproved.

        - She claims Meghan was bored at that garden party and forced Harry to leave, but reporters have said that aides previously told them the Sussexes would not stay for long.

        - As for Meghan “revenge announcing” her pregnancy during the reception: the Sussexes didn’t even attend Eugenie’s receptions, since they were going to Australia.

      @A. Thanks for taking one for the team.

    “Lady Colin Campbell” is a piece of work. She was only married to Colin Campbell for a short time and kept the title, etc. after their divorce. She was just a connected wannabe before that marriage and she has been milking it ever since. She has a lot of nerve writing this book.

  56. Marigold says:

    I think the problem with all of this is calling it a family.

    They’re not a family. They don’t spend time together. How many families who all live in the same city spend so little time together? Healthy ones, I mean. Obviously, people have damaged relationships and distance themselves, but how many siblings do you know who live in the same city and spend ZERO time together except on formal holiday occasions? Maybe that’s how the UK rolls, but it’s not how it works anywhere else I’ve lived. Siblings see each other. They talk. Adult kids see the parents pretty frequently, and they don’t have to make appointments to chat with mom or Grandma. In addition, even in the wealthy families I’ve been exposed to, Grandmother isn’t a distant figurehead. She’s an actual grandmother. In families where the kids work for a family company where Mom or Dad is the boss, there is still a semblance of family attachment.

    Not with the Windsors.

    They don’t love one another because they don’t even know each other. They’re rich, isolated, and damaged. They have power and they have been catered to, but they have not been loved. They literally weren’t hugged enough as children. That’s a one-liner people haul out, but it’s a real thing. The people have objectified them and feel a sense of ownership toward them, but it’s not a sense of family ownership. It’s a sense of property ownership. Harry belonged to them in the same way that a bridge or a park or a building belong to them. So whether you look to the people or to his own relatives…it’s bleak.

    This is not a family, and that’s why they don’t act like one. It’s sad.

    Harry met a woman who loved him because he’s Harry, and he grabbed on for dear life. If the employees and servants running the palace are held in higher esteem and given higher value by the family than their own kin…that’s a sad commentary, but it’s also the only explanation anyone needs. He realized they weren’t his family, and then he realized they were going to ruin the family he built for himself. So he left.

    It had nothing to do with Meghan. It was 100% him, and it always has been. I’m sure she’s onboard, but from the very beginning, I couldn’t figure out why everyone jumped immediately to, “Meghan wanted to leave.” Harry has wanted to leave since he was a teenager.

    This ladies and gentlemen is white supremacy at its finest.

    White supremacy at its finest. To say what they have ran to the dm and said showed no way were they ever going to accept Meghan and her children-they have made it plain whose boss of the royal family and the castles. They definitely have run the royal family a long time with blunt force trauma.
