Duchess Meghan still won’t travel to the UK, but she’ll send flowers to the petty Queen

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle attend an event at Millennium Point to celebrate International Women's Day in Birmingham on 8th March 2018

Last week, we devoted a lot of time to the Duke and Duchess of Sussex and the birth certificate drama. That was the big royal story, and I kind of felt like this other story got buried: Meghan has zero plans to go back to the UK this spring or summer. If Prince Harry does travel to the UK for Trooping the Colour or his grandfather’s 100th birthday, Harry will do so alone, with Meghan and Archie staying in California. The British press was all abuzz with that news two weekends ago, and no one could decide if it was a good or bad thing. It was a good thing because they all hate Meghan, obviously. But it was a bad thing because Meghan is “snubbing” the Windsors and the British press. She said “lol I don’t need you, I never needed you.” Now Omid Scobie has commented about whether or not Meghan’s absence should be seen as a “snub.”

Meghan Markle won’t come to the UK this summer because she ‘doesn’t want to be away from Archie’, the author of her biography Finding Freedom has claimed. The Duchess of Sussex, 39, who is currently living in her $14million mansion in California having stepped back from her royal duties last year, does not plan to accompany Prince Harry, 36, when he visits his family for the first time since Megxit, according to royal insiders.

Omid Scobie said current travel plans were ‘up in the air’ due to the Covid-19 crisis, but that it is ‘easier for the Duke to do the trip solo’. Speaking to Ok! magazine, the royal expert explained: ‘Meghan wouldn’t want to be away from Archie and it would be very tricky to factor a small child into their travels with all the restrictions that could potentially be in place.’

He added that the Duchess would likely catch up with the family virtually, explaining: ‘Archie loves being on Zoom calls with the family and the Queen has been enjoying those throughout lockdown.’

While Meghan could potentially be missing several events in the UK, including the Queen’s birthday and the unveiling of the Princess Diana statue, Omid said the royal would still make an effort with those occasions. He explained: ‘I’m sure Meghan will send the Queen some gorgeous flowers for her birthday and also get Archie to help her with the card.’

His comments come after royal expert Nigel Cawthrone, author of the book Prince Andrew, told FEMAIL the decision not to travel to the UK would be a ‘snub’ from the duchess and would cast a ‘dark shadow’ over the Firm’s summer celebrations. He claimed: ‘If Meghan decided not to attend for no reason it would indeed be a snub to her royal in-laws and mark a nadir in the relations between the royal family and the Sussexes.’

[From The Daily Mail]

I’m sorry but Scobie is being a shady B and I’m here for it! Meghan will send the Queen flowers on her little struggle birthday!!! That’s what pisses off these people more than anything else – that Meghan has literally no interest in participating in their unhinged carnival anymore. She doesn’t need them. She doesn’t need access to them. She’s not interested in the trappings of royalty. She has her own brand of magic. They can’t stand it. They’re in knots trying to shame her into coming back all while they’re furious that they have no hold on her. And she’s also like “you’re not going to get your hands on my son either.”

    I know people will believe it because it’s Omid but I still think he’s getting ahead of himself by saying Harry will travel.

    We have no idea what the state of the pandemic will look like in 4-5 months but I doubt we will reach a stage where international travel restrictions are lifted. If he travels, he’ll be blamed for putting pressure on the NHS and for travelling irresponsibly.

    • Amy Bee says:

      I agree, Omid doesn’t know anything and is just speculating. I don’t think Harry and Meghan have decided if they’re going to travel. We’re still in a pandemic.

    • Becks1 says:

      Of course he’s speculating – no one knows what travel will look like in June – but I still love the shade. “Nah, Meghan is just going to send some flowers, Archie will scribble on a card, done and done.”

      • Amy Bee says:

        I’m wary of Omid’s comments they are not very useful and are used to attack Meghan. His speculation about Meghan writing to her father is being used by the media and in court to paint her as calculating and deceptive. He’s made his money, it’s time to shut up about Meghan. The fact is, he doesn’t know what’s going on with Harry and Meghan.

      • Becks1 says:

        “he doesnt know what’s going on with Harry and Meghan” – which is why I started off my comment with “of course he’s speculating.”

      • Amy Bee says:

        I’m not denying what you’ve said. However there are some people who believe everything he says, shady or not.

      • GraceB says:

        Is there anyone else here who cannot stand Omid? He gives me way creepy vibes with the way he talks about Meghan in particular and I think he wants everyone to think they’re much closer than they actually are. He strikes me as a creepy mega fan disguised as a journalist. I don’t think he’s doing them any favours in the long run either because there are people who believe that his word is in fact their word.

      • Wiglet Watcher says:

        Grace
        I’m not getting the creepy vibe from Omid. I think he has some connection there, but can never come out and say that he is a mouthpiece of any sort. And without understanding that missing piece to the puzzle I could see how he could come across stalkerish. He’s got a potential goldmine with this couple if he keeps playing to their favor.

        And maybe from his time from RR reporting he’s ready to be a “shady B” for the hell of it.

    • Ginger says:

      The Queen was getting dragged this weekend over her wealth and here comes a fluff piece on how close she is to the Sussex’s and how Archie is going to help make her a card?? Come on. Omid is writing pure fan fiction.

      If she was so close to the Sussex’s why did they have such a hard time getting an appointment to discuss leaving the RF?

      I doubt trooping will happen at all. We have no clue how things will be in the summer.

      • Roo says:

        Ginger, did you see that the Guardian has a new piece on how many times Betty has used her privilege to affect legislation? They seem to be going after her, which I find very interesting.

      • Ginger says:

        Yes, I did. That’s why this article came out no doubt. She was getting dragged and now we have an article that makes her look like a nice, sweet grandmother. Predictable.

      • Wiglet Watcher says:

        Toss in the mike and Zara post and you have a solid pattern forming from journalists questioning and exposing the BRF finances.

        Everyone, excluding will and Kate are being heavily mentioned and judged… only a matter of time before those royals grow bitter and feed the beast some information.

      • Beach Dreams says:

        @Wiglet Watcher, re: your second paragraph, I noticed that too and I find it curious. Everyone except the Cambridges seems to be taking a hit from the press. Even the ‘Wessexes might move to Scotland’ story seemed like it was meant to spark the ridicule it received. Maybe W&K will be the stars in another royal finances exposé this week, but I wouldn’t be surprised if they were passed over.

    • whateveryousay says:

      Yeah this is highly speculative.

    • ➕💯, Sofia. It’s all guesswork — as is pretty much everything about the Sussexes —- until it does or doesn’t happen or until the Sussexes release an official statement. I just don’t see the Sussexes engaging with Scobie on this level. Just because he co-authored a book on them doesn’t anoint him as their mouthpiece in my opinion.

    • I call this the SUSSEX SCENARIO. Will Sussexes/Harry/Meghan do this or do that, will it be an insult to the Queen, will the Royal family survive it, how dare S/H/M do or not do, think, or not think this or that in whatever the SUSSEX SCENARIO the “carnival of so-called Royal experts” has determined is the click bait topic of the moment.

    • 809Matriarch says:

      He didn’t say Harry WOULD travel. He said, it would be easier for the Duke to go solo. It’s still too much speculation for me though. It would be unwise in my opinion for him to go alone. I don’t trust those royals.

      • fluffy_bunny says:

        You think they’re going to hold Harry hostage and demand he divorce Meghan? Take his passport? Will Biden send a seal team to rescue him? Will Oprah send her private jet to secret him out of the UK?

      • MeToforever says:

        The way the BM go on about Harry being Meghan’s hostage, I wouldn’t put it past someone in that world (BM/BRF/Royalist) to actually mannap Harry to keep him in Britain should he visits without Meghan. As for Meghan, she and Archie need to avoid that little island if possible.

      • fluffy_bunny says:

        @Metoo The Sussex Squad will save him. Time for everyone to make sure their passports are valid. We need some black ops contractors, an encrypted satellite phone, a black amex and an apache helicopter. They will not take our ginger Prince. We can do this ladies.

      • Dl says:

        @fluffy bunny count me in! Watch me have an asthma attack as a distraction😂😇

  2. Brit says:

    These people are thirsty, lol. They just need to be upfront and say they need the money and clicks. They all know good and well there won’t be any events coming up and instead of blaming the pandemic, they want to create drama.

    • (TheOG) Jan90067 says:

      First, they write that if they DO come, it’ll be a MAJOR headache, and OMG EVERYONE!!! THEY WILL PULL ALLLLLLLLLLLL THE ATTENTION AWAY FROM TRF. BUT…. if they DON’T come, IT’S A MAJOR SNUUUUUUUB!!!! HOW *DARE* ***SHE*** DO THAT!

      Even if Meghan *was* inclined to go to be Harry’s support (IF Harry even does go), she will be slammed for either choice. Frankly, I think Harry should just scribble his name on the bottom of Archie’s cards for Ol’ Brenda and Petrified Phil and call it a day.

      • Noodle says:

        That’s the thing… everyone will be focused on Meghan, and the rest of the dysfunch-bunch will be pissed that she’s taking attention away from the Queen. The poor granny cannot even have a birthday without the American stealing away her love and attention.

      • BayTampaBay says:

        @Noodle – I think Meghan will take away just as much or more attention from QEII and” the rest of the dysfunch-bunch “if she stays home as the tabloids are desperate for Sussex stories and “Prince Harry Alone & Miserable” pictures.

      • Noodle says:

        @baytampabay, totally agree. She cannot do anything right, in their eyes. All she can do is continue to prioritize her own family and be happy. Something few of the rest of them have failed to do.

      • GraceB says:

        I reckon Meghan is pregnant and thats why she hasn’t been seen for so long and why she’s unlikely to travel but saying it’s actually to snub the Royals seems like the more interesting option.

        It’s really interesting watching the double edged sword of Harry & Meghan’s marriage unfold. I mean it’s easy to say you’re done with all the trappings of royalty once you’ve already been made a royal and enjoyed an elevated status and privilege because of it. That’s something which neither of them will ever lose, no matter how much they appear to snub the BRF now. At the same time, they’ve paid a heavy price for the position.

    • BayTampaBay says:

      @Brit – You are correct! The tabloid media, especially the Daily Fail, are just thirsty. The Daily fail wins either way. If Meghan comes to the UK this summer then they write stories about how “no one” wants her in the country, how much she is disliked, the use of a private jet whether she used one or not and how many quarantine protocols she violated. If Meghan does not come then they write stories about how Meghan is snubbing and giving the finger to QEII. It is a no win situation.

      If they asked me for my advice I would advise that they both come to the UK or they both stay home.

      Also, I do not think that Omid Scobie really knows anything at all regarding this matter.

    WORD UP KAISER.

  4. Case says:

    I highly doubt either of them will be traveling spring/summer. I haven’t seen any indication things could be THAT much better until maybe fall, and they seem like people who would take this seriously and not put themselves or others at risk just to travel.

  5. Sinéad says:

    “She has her own brand of magic” and that’s it! that’s the whole problem they have with her in a nutshell!

  6. Cecilia says:

    There is absolutely no way that harry is going tot travel without meghan but at least royal reporters have their little fanfiction

    • MF1 says:

      Agree. He’d have to quarantine away from them for at least a week after returning to the U.S. No way he signs up for that.

      Also, there’s no way that Meghan and Archie are zooming with the queen. I don’t buy that for a hot second. We all know the queen DGAF about her great grandkids, and I doubt Meghan would make time in her calendar for the racist granny-in-law who ran her out of England.

  7. Becks1 says:

    I dont even care if it is a “snub” if Meghan doesnt go – the royals deserve to be snubbed. They dont deserve her time, her energy, and her presence – they know that if she attends the Trooping, it will get a lot more coverage than if she doesnt, and the royal reporters will spin it as “how welcoming and understanding the queen and charles are” – so no, I dont blame Meghan for not going, everything else aside.

    However, that “everything else” includes a global pandemic that is still going on, vaccinations or not, so Meghan has a legitimate reason for missing out this year.

    • Myra says:

      Ultimately it’s her choice if she goes or not. That’s the great thing about leaving the BRF, she has that freedom once more to choose. There is no sneaky courtier telling her what to do, what to wear, what to say, what’s considered a snub etc. I don’t get these people. They’re jealous when she’s around and they’re offended when she isn’t?

    • tee says:

      i agree. and who cares if they trash her for not going. they trash her anyway, constantly, for existing. she has every reason to be traumatized by her experience living in the UK. protecting her peace is what matters.

  8. Sharpe says:

    Meghan may not travel to the UK this spring or summer for other reasons. I believe and hope that she is pregnant. When is the baby due, May or June? That will determine if and when Meghan or Harry for that matter travel. Also, COVID.

  9. Yoyo says:

    I think what piss off the BM so much, is that Meghan never gave in to their demands, like other royals, except Harry.
    I remember when they wrote, Harry and Meghan would sit together at private dinners, a no, no in that set, and the courtiers shock, when Meghan asked them why.

    • Nyro says:

      Meghan doesn’t give a f%ck about the British aristocracy and their peculiar ways and the little snobby games they play. They know she isn’t impressed by them and it kills them because they’re actually desperate for her approval. They KNOW she’s better than them. That’s why they’re always contradicting themselves, hollering about how disliked and unwelcomed she is in their circle while also crying about being snubbed by her.

  10. ABritGuest says:

    I think Omid knows about as much as Meghans travel plans as I do. Their spokesperson said just a few weeks ago that travel plans are presumptuous and whether the royals can even do gatherings for trooping let alone if their relatives from abroad can fly in for them is very much up in the air with this pandemic. Just today U.K. government is adding more travel restrictions and heavy punishments for breaches of those.

    The tone of this is very similar to when Beatrice was getting married and the Express had headlines that if Sussexes attended Meghan would upstage the bride AND her non attendance would be a major snub. Safe to say either way Meghan can’t win & assuming these events go ahead even if Sussexes are not able to fly because of restrictions etc in the tabloids are going to call it a snub. The palace can’t be happy with suggestion that Meghan’s possible absence would overshadow the Queen & first royal gathering in ages

    The press also can’t make up their minds whether Harry is at war with his family still or if they are doing all these fun zooms. I think we’d have heard more from gossipy courtiers if Archie was on all these zooms with the family and things like wreathgate & birth certificate gate don’t really spell happy families so I take that with a pinch of salt

    • Amy Bee says:

      I agree with everything you’ve said. If there were Zooms taking place between the Queen and the Sussexes, there would be reports about them in the press. The Royal Family, especially the Queen does everything in the presence of courtiers.

    • Ginger says:

      The part where Harry and Meghan are sad that the RF can’t see Archie makes me laugh. If they were so “sad” they would have brought him back when they did their farewell tour. Everything the RF have done to them since their departure speaks volumes. Things are not good. If Harry wanted to go back so bad he could. He is rich and famous and could take a private jet if he wanted to.

      • MF1 says:

        Oh, I’m quite sure H&M are sad that the RF can’t see Archie. I’m sure they’re sad that the RF is so racist that they can’t safely expose their biracial son to his own grandparents, aunts, uncles, and cousins. I’m sure they’re sad that the RF are so abusive that they caused years of trauma for Meghan and would likely do the same for Archie if allowed. I’m sure they’re sad that it’s the RF’s own damn fault they had to move Archie half away across the globe to escape the toxicity of the Windsors.

  11. Harper says:

    ‘If Meghan decided not to attend for no reason it would indeed be a snub to her royal in-laws.” Not wanting to travel overseas in a pandemic with a two-year to a hostile country is a reason.

    • one of the Marys says:

      @Harper, I hear ya, that line stood out to me as well. What a bunch of assholes, no reason indeed, the reasons fill a book

    • Abby says:

      Exactly. WE ARE IN A PANDEMIC.

      She doesn’t owe them a thing. Not a thing. And definitely not access to her child. No.

    • L4frimaire says:

      They can bleat about it all they want but if she actually came with Harry, they’d be ecstatic over there. They’d be rubbing their hands, sharpening the knives, anticipating counting the coins and clicks.

  12. Over it says:

    Oh what the heck does Omid really know, I highly doubt that they are sharing their plans with him considering they seem to be keeping their personal lives just that, personal. And your absolute correct Kaiser, Megs doesn’t need those petty racist bitches. They can all go suck lemons. Megs is zen and she doesn’t give a flying F about any of them and it’s her child he isn’t a tool to be used and abused to make the royals feel important. The British media and the windsors can all kiss her Ass.

  13. February-Pisces says:

    The thing is if they both went without archie, when they go back to the USA would they have to self isolate for 2 weeks? I’m not sure what the rules over there are, or if they would change, but just in case it would be wise if only harry went.

    Also in the uk we will still be social distancing in the summer, so whatever big events the royal family have planned will probably be scaled back anyway. I think harry only wants to go to see eugenies baby who should have been born by then, and the Diana statue, cos you know Willie will just take all the credit.

    But of course it’s a snub, but if she went she would also be accused of stealing all the attention too. We all know Meghan can never win regardless. Part of me hope she does turn up with a killer wardrobe and shocks the hell out of them.

    • BayTampaBay says:

      Eugenie had her baby and it is an 8lb boy.

      • Steph says:

        She did? When? I’m pretty sure @Kaiser would have covered it, did I miss it?

      • BayTampaBay says:

        Earlier today. I got the news on a Vanity Fair feed. Kaiser will have a great story tomorrow.

      • Steph says:

        I just saw it on Twitter. The story will be up in the morning, I’m sure.

      • Itsme says:

        And guess what hospital she used? The big ol’ private and fancy one! You know, the one they gave Meghan absolute sh@t for using, A$$holes.

      • anotherlily says:

        And, the announcement was made 8 hours after the birth, like Meghan. No details of the hospital were given beforehand and no photos on the hospital steps,like Meghan. So,is Eugenie going to be accused of ‘snubbing’ supposed royal tradition,like Meghan was?

  14. Annalise says:

    AMEN to MM making it PAINFULLY apparent that she couldnt care LESS about her proximity to them. I think THAT has been one of the main reasons for all the vitriol from the RF and especially the courtiers. All the courtiers have probably wanted their whole lives was to be kind-of-sort-of-almost-royal-adjacent and all the RF has ever known are people JUST like that, its been the source of their power for generations. And so to see someone OPENLY, BLATANTLY reject them, for all the world to see, has brought to light just how ugly they really are. For a while now ive likened the UK media, the courtiers and the RF to the abuser in an abusive relationship. They thought theyd be able to abuse, diminish, manipulate and CONTROL H&M for the rest of their lives, and now theyre enraged cuz they got LEFT.
    Slightly off topic, one thing ive been wondering, since the RF is now less 2 working royals, shouldnt the sovereign grant be adjusted (reduced)? What do you want to be it WASNT? Gee maybe the RF should pay back the British taxpayer for all that extra money they kept, à la making H&M pay them back for Frogmore. Wheres THAT headline??

    • one of the Marys says:

      @Annalise I liked your comments. I think how public this has been is a huge part of why the royal family is struggling so much with this ‘insult’. The whole world can see that they got rejected and they kept at it so long more and more people are understanding why they got rejected. No wonder Meghan has so much support. She refused to slink away quietly and let them control the narrative. I admire her so much

  15. Golly Gee says:

    The decision not to travel by “the Duchess would cast a ‘dark shadow ‘ over the firm’s summer celebration.“ Of course they chose the description ‘dark shadow ‘ from the book.

    • Over it says:

      Would the snub be anything like the wreath snub petty did to Harry? Or the not letting Meghan borrow any of the crown jewelry kind of snub? Just saying what goes around comes around. You made your snubby bed when you decided to feed Harry and especially Meghan to the wolves so you deserve whatever you racist get.

      • L84Tea says:

        Funny enough, I really liked Meghan’s own delicate jewelry better than all those chunky, clunky pieces anyway. Plus, she does have a few of Diana’s pieces, and when she wears them, she wears them very well.

    • swirlmamad says:

      That choice of words was not lost on me either. Dogwhistling.

  16. Snuffles says:

    Omid speculates just as much as the next RR, the only difference is that he’s generally positive about Meghan and Harry.

    Sometimes I wonder if the RRs genuinely believe all the crazy stuff they speculate on or are they just playing to their racist, conservative audience.

  17. Maria says:

    Still too soon to tell if Harry will go at all.
    I don’t think he or Meghan should. That family is toxic and horrifying and it doesn’t look like there’s anything anyone can do about it. And there’s no reason for them to go help the RR’s make money. They can all go to hell.

    • L84Tea says:

      It’s like someone quitting smoking and having gone a year without a cigarette. Why then would you pick one up to smoke it, knowing it could all start up again and you’re left saying ‘I was doing just fine. Why did I have to do that?’ That family is toxic and everything associated with them–the BM, the Rota–is like sludge just waiting to gleefully pour itself on them.

  18. Catherine says:

    Omid has been generally fair to the Sussexes but he still has the habits of the other royal reporters one of which is presenting pure speculation as facts or insider knowledge. Look at the things that have been announced recently that no one knew about. They have no access. But in order to maintain their “expert” status they speculate. This talk about the trooping is being driven by the palace/media. They want a narrative they can control and for them it’s great because either way they can criticize Meghan. Also, Omid can be as shady as the other Royal Reporters. He knows that any commentary about Archie leads to criticism of Meghan. He never speculates about the Cambridge kids. But he will speculate about Archie because he knows it will get him attention. Bottom line for me for all the reporters. If you don’t know about the work. There is no way you know about their thoughts, feelings, plans etc. Also, it’s just frustrating and quite frankly offensive how they talk like there isn’t a pandemic. The U.K. has the highest infection rate and the highest death rate in the world. They just discovered a second U.K. mutation. People can’t visit their parents in care homes. Children can’t go to school. But the Rota want to talk about transatlantic travel in June.

    • Carmen-JamRock says:

      I sooooo agree with everything you say! All you say about #scobie…all you say abt the brits.:

      “Also, Omid can be as shady as the other Royal Reporters. He knows that any commentary about Archie leads to criticism of Meghan. He never speculates about the Cambridge kids. But he will speculate about Archie because he knows it will get him attention.”

      “Bottom line for me for all the reporters. If you don’t know about the work. There is no way you know about their thoughts, feelings, plans etc.”

      “Also, it’s just frustrating and quite frankly offensive how they talk like there isn’t a pandemic. The U.K. has the highest infection rate and the highest death rate in the world.

  19. Amelie says:

    Well Meghan has the best excuse in the world not to travel with Archie right now which is the COVID pandemic and even better if she hasn’t received the vaccine yet. She might also be pregnant too and unnecessary stressful travel is another great excuse. Also, I don’t see why Kate and William couldn’t fly out one day to LA when travel restrictions ease. They aren’t glued to the British throne and have traveled to far-flung places for vacation plenty of times.

  20. L4frimaire says:

    Omid sounds like he’s writing from the Katie Nicholls book of style. It all sounds so florid and contrived. Archie helping with a card, like the little card the Cambridge kids sent their great grandma? I’m sure the Queen will notice some little bouquet sent. It’s so cheesy. All this speculation is so desperate,which says these events aren’t t going to happen, or be less public due to the pandemic. Numbers are going down, so yeah, travel is possible,but we’re not going to know anything about the Sussexes plans because they already said it depends. Based on the hostile stories in the UK press, whatever they do together or separately will be put in a negative light. Also they are private citizens, not working royals so it’s none of our business. You notice the amount of time spent speculating on this instead of stories on the Queens finances or the fact that another Maxwell deposition will be unsealed.

  21. tee says:

    im sure the cambridges hope neither of them come, especially for the diana unveiling. that’s a top notch family photo opportunity for them. it’s too bad they’re not on good enough terms to facetime harry and meghan so they could still be present tho. im sure harry would be sad to miss it.

  22. Nicole says:

    Why do they keep mentioning the price of their home? They used their own money and they don’t live within UK borders. As an American this just seems stupid.

    • L84Tea says:

      It’s especially stupid considering the people they are defending literally live in castles with gold pianos, have golden horse carriages, wear crowns and sashes, and have people bow to them.

      • MyOpinion says:

        And let’s not forget that the British taxpayers pay to keep their mansions updated and repaired! How do they forget these matters? I would be revolting in the streets over the fact that the very political Petty Betty has been using Parliament to angle her private wealth!!

    • Likeyoucare says:

      Next time, scoobie should write, the queen who lives in a 300million pound castle that been sponsored by the tax payer money.

  23. Rianic says:

    You know what I would LOVE? For her to be pregnant and not to tell. Stay home, do zoom calls, but not make a public announcement or the royal family, just let them find out when the baby is born.

  24. MsIam says:

    I’m not sure why everyone wants to bash Omid? All he’s doing is responding to the comments of that other carnival “expert” that’s quoted as claiming it would be a “huge snub” if Meghan doesn’t show. Omid is saying is that plans are up in the air, if Meghan doesn’t come its because it may be easier for Harry to travel alone during the pandemic rather than some big “snub” and that they talk to the family on Zoom, which has been previously reported. Now everybody wants to act like he’s Katie Nicholl or something. Jeez!

      He’s a less than perfect ally, therefore he must be snubbed. I sigh with you. The only guarantee that a purity test will give you is that the person being tested will lose. Meghan has 1 person in the circus who’s willing to give her any sense of humanity at all. One. Without Omid, there’s NO ONE within the system who will push back against the royal rat propaganda.

      • Lilly (with the double-L) says:

        @MsIam and @lanne – what you both said. I appreciate him and thank goodness for him – as you said lanne, he’s the only one within the system to push back.

    • Sofia says:

      I mean I can’t speak for everyone else but I didn’t criticise Omid specifically, just what he was saying in the article. Someone else said this last week and I basically said the same thing as I said above. Most of the comments would probably be the same if this came from Kate Nicholl or whatever.

      Also Omid isn’t above criticism just because he’s nice to Meghan. It’s great that he is but people can still critique him AND appreciate he’s nice to Meghan.

    What would it matter if Archie made her a card? The only one that would be bragged about and put on SM would be George’s card. I wonder if any of the other great-grandchildren made Liz and Phil anniversary cards.

  26. Alexandria says:

    Both of them shouldn’t go back to the UK unless there is a death. There is a pandemic. Other families across the pond or world cannot visit each other (mostly) unless there is compelling reason such as a sick relative. It shouldn’t be any different for Brenda. And it’s so selfish to have Trooping but hey she is selfish. She shouldn’t be embarrassed about her wealth. She should be embarrassed about herself.

    • MyOpinion says:

      Wouldn’t that be fabulous and introspective of her, but she isn’t capable of that, even in her old age.
      It doesn’t matter though due to the constant berating by the RR and the rest of that nasty bunch. But I would love for Meghan to make a visit and be her beautiful fabulous self as she did last spring. She was stunning and her beautiful soul gleamed with every look and motion she made.

  27. Beach Dreams says:

    I find it pretty pathetic that the RF is still clinging to the shrinking possibility that they’ll get to have a normal Trooping this year. Could things be in a better state by then? Maybe, but looking at the pandemic trends now and new strains seeming to pop up constantly, I highly doubt it. Especially with BoJo and co. running the show.

    • BayTampaBay says:

      @Beach Dreams – I agree with you. There will not be a traditional Trooping of the Color this year. The best QEII can hope for this year is a virtual event unless she wants to endanger many people.

      • Nyro says:

        She’s a selfish POS so I’m sure she’ll demand they push forward with the events. I hope she has her little covid dropping so she can get dragged by the public and then show up on the balcony only to see damn near no one in front of the palace.

  28. Reece says:

    The thing is Meghan doesn’t need them and Harry doesn’t/NEVER needed them either.
    He just didn’t know it, until he had something else to fight for.

  29. Detnow359 says:

    Even though the royals want to ignore it we are in a pandemic. I wouldn’t travel with a nearly 2 year old internationally or leave him behind for what a month? Who cares what the public or her in-laws think.

  30. Dee Kay says:

    I hope that even post-pandemic or post-vaccinations, Meghan *never* returns to the UK. Why should she? She can Zoom occasionally with the non-profits she made a commitment to, and she can continue to draw attention to them and give them a fundraising boost, from California. That seems like the only real connection she should sustain to the UK going forward. The Royal Family and its whole circus have only been harmful to her and her child. The UK press can speculate about her and write trash about her all they want but it will only be the Hollywood press corps (and, unfortunately, the paparazzi) who will benefit from getting fresh pics of H&M at future awards ceremonies and other cool events in LA and probably in NY.

    Carnival is right! I’ve basically come to view Royal events and the dreaded protocol as one big clown show. The rest of the world has real problems and responsibilities. Who cares what some 90 year old woman on social assistance thinks and does at this point? :) I wish they’d just fade into obscurity and that the fine people of the UK could stop paying for their lifestyle. Tourists will still come, y’all. H and M have real work to do and don’t need to waste time on this drama.
