Duchess Meghan honors the ‘incomparable & indelible legacy’ of RBG

The Prince of Wales' 70th Birthday Patronage Celebration

The Duchess of Sussex was one of many celebrity women to issue public statements about the passing of Ruth Bader Ginsburg on Friday. Meghan kept it short:

“With an incomparable and indelible legacy, Ruth Bader Ginsburg will forever be known as a woman of brilliance, a Justice of courage, and a human of deep conviction.She has been a true inspiration to me since I was a girl. Honor her, remember her, act for her.”

While I will forever believe that Meghan’s get-out-the-vote work is apolitical, this statement does sort of edge up on, you know, being partial to one side over the other. GOOD. I hope the knuckle-dragging conservatives on both sides of the Atlantic stay mad.

Meanwhile, Katie Nicholl recently had some very vague predictions and “scoops” about what the Sussexes’ new life COULD be. She’s so obviously talking out of her ass, it’s pretty funny.

“They are, I’m told, beginning to explore their neighborhood,” royal expert Katie Nicholl tells ET. “They have ventured out and they’ve been spotted out and about. They are keeping a low profile. They are very aware of the paparazzi. They are determined not to be photographed and particularly for Archie not to be photographed by the paparazzi, so don’t expect to see them necessarily out at the beaches near by.”

One of the couple’s favorite California pastimes is visiting a beloved fast food chain.

“They often stop at the In-N-Out Burger much to the astonishment of the staff who serve them,” Nicholl reveals. “Anyone who knows Prince Harry knows he loves a good burger. He’s a fan of fast food so it doesn’t surprise me at all that he stops there.”

Though the couple originally claimed to want to split their time between North America and the United Kingdom, the coronavirus pandemic has kept them from traveling back to England.

“They will come back to the U.K., of course, they will want to see Harry’s family over here,” Nicholl says. “I can see them coming back and spending part of the summer holiday over here… possibly alternating Christmases, but I don’t think they’re going to be dividing their time. I think they have made their new life in America and that is where they are going to spend a majority of their time from now on.”

As for the relationship between Harry and William, things are looking up for the siblings.

“The brothers spoke on Harry’s birthday,” Nicholl says of Harry’s 36th birthday earlier this week. “It’s no secret that it’s been a rocky path between the two brothers, but I actually think the distance has been a good thing for them. They are speaking more than they did before. They are getting along much better than they were several months ago, so I think the signs are all very positive. I think it will be some time before we see them having possibly a cozy Christmas together, but I think things are definitely better than they were.”

Yes, we know they’re being super-careful of paparazzi… because they haven’t been photographed in Santa Barbara at all. Well deduced, Katie Nicholl. And no one can keep their stories straight about William and Harry… either William is incandescent with rage and constantly worrying that the Sussexes will upstage him OR there is a softening and the brothers have reached a fragile truce. Personally, I doubt Will & Harry speak much. I think Willileaks is still full of RAGE.

    Go on Duchess.

    The Sussexes don’t have a Twitter or Instagram account yet. When I saw this statement I assumed they had started one up and it came from there, but they still don’t have it. Do they have a PR person who issues releases? It wasn’t just People, I saw it in other websites.

    • mytwocents says:

      Meghan sent the message to Huffington Post

    • The comment was released to ECanada via their spokesperson. Everyone else is picking it up from them.

    • Amy Bee says:

      Their spokesman sent it out to media outlets. It’s clear, at least to me, that the Royal Family has banned them from using social media during the one year review.

      • Myra says:

        I think they are waiting for their charity to launch and use that as their only social media platform. The royal family would have no influence to impose such a ban on them, especially as we’ve seen Harry and Meghan make some even bigger moves recently.

      • BnLurkN4eva says:

        I said this the other day too. I absolutely think they were told they couldn’t have a social media account for a period of time. I think they are not allowed to use the old Instagram account even with a different name. It must have been hellish in that life for them to want out by any means necessary, giving up anything and everything. They are so honorable, that they are actually sticking to whatever agreement they made, which I bet isn’t really something that can be enforced.

    • Sid says:

      ET Canada contacted Meghan’s people for a comment. Then Meghan’s people released her comment to ET Canada and then other media outlets began using it too.

  3. Lizzie says:

    What a wonderful couple, Lord Rage and his charming wife RestingBitchFace. And their ‘friends’ don’t like them? Cannot imagine why.

  4. Seraphina says:

    I agree with you Kaiser, that is on borderline of political but like you stated: GOOD.

    They were stripped of everything, including a voice. And it’s not like marrying into the BRF gave Meghan a platform, she already had one. So she went back to doing what she doing. They can’t have it both ways.

    • Ash says:

      I’m absolutely on board with borderline political statements and the popcorn is in the microwave as we speak…

      …but let’s not kid ourselves that the platform Meghan has now is anything like what she had pre-BRF.

      • Seraphina says:

        Whole heartedly agree, she has a wider and more respectable (not just an actress) platform due to the BRF – marrying into the family and how she was treated. Which makes it all the more hilarious.

    • BnLurkN4eva says:

      Also, only those you can sell bridge to believe the BRF aren’t political. I hope Meghan continues to use her voice anyway she likes. She’s a free human being and should be able to voice her opinions like all other free humans are allowed. Harry can continue to pretend to be apolitical, Meghan can just return to her previous advocacy.

      • Nic919 says:

        The york girls showed up to a celebration party once Boris won the election which sounds pretty damn political and biased to me.

  5. Sofia says:

    She’s damned if she don’t, damned if she do so she just do whatever she wants

  6. Amy Bee says:

    I can’t believe Katie Nicholl gets paid for this nonsense.

  7. Sunday says:

    “I, Katie Nicholl, can reveal that on at least one occasion, Meghan and Harry have exited from their front door and walked on the sidewalk in their star-studded California neighborhood. Baby Archie was also present, in a trendy stroller model popular with Hollywood moms. A source was said to be concerned because the dogs were not present at the time, leading the source to speculate about said whereabouts of the California canines. I got paid actual, real money to write this.”

  8. Mtec says:

    Wasn’t there just one instance of M&H being sighted going to In-and-Out burger? But this woman is making it seem like it’s a regular thing for them ‘cause she wants to pretend she knows anything about their routine. How she managed to scam her way into this job I will never understand.

    • BnLurkN4eva says:

      British accent. That’s all American media seems to require to hire someone in media and just like that, the job’s yours. You may not keep it, see Pipa, but that accent will certainly get you in the door. I remember there was this British weather woman briefly on a local station I watched and she was so awful. I mean truly awful and of course she didn’t last long, but you know she was only hired in the first place because of that accent.

  9. Jaded says:

    God what a load of utter vapid bollocks this woman gets paid to write.

  10. ABritGuest says:

    Omg she got that thing about in and out burgers from e online as their employees talked about seeing them. And being wary about paparazzi thing is obvious given the lawsuit they filed about Tyler Perry’s house& saying they haven’t taken Archie out. im guessing they haven’t been papped much since moving to Santa Barbara too. What an easy job

    As for the call with William was waiting for when they would start on that again after the various claims of his being angry about the Netflix deal. Not my business if they are chatting or not but from press reporting point of view I think the press are angry things like Netflix didn’t leak to them and are desperate for access to the Sussexes again. I wonder if that Spotify thing to the Mirror has any truth or if this was a test…

  11. Emily says:

    Lol Katie Nicholl knows absolutely nothing. Most celebrity articles have insider quotes that are so meaningless but this one is so hilarious to me because it generically described what any new young family would do when moving to a new neighborhood. All people explore their surroundings when they move to a new location. It would be obvious Meghan and Harry would be hyper aware of paparazzi and avoid them. And I’m sure one of the first things Meghan did was drag Harry to an In-N-Out since it’s basically part of California tourism.

  12. Mariane says:

    Well done Meghan. I hope she announces when she sends out her ballot or endorses a #hashtag to get people to get up and do the same!We are now around 40days to the election. Let’s check on our friends, neighbours..etc and make sure they are taking this seriously.

    I hope no one here is giving Hatie clicks. Thanx to Kaiser/CB we can read her nonsense here without giving her clicks. I guess ET have up on getting access to the sussexs for employing this hater who will be subpoenaed on harry’s hacking case for using illegally obtained information

  13. paddingtonjr says:

    Meghan speaks from her heart and, because of things, people will turn it into something “political” and “unduchessy”. Should Kate have an idol who passes away and she says something, people will praise it as the word on high. You do you, Meghan.
