Prince Harry criticized for stealing his grandmother’s vaccine thunder

Queen's Christmas broadcast

Prince Harry’s video with James Corden was so utterly charming. Predictably, the toxic British press got super-salty about both Harry’s natural charisma AND the fact that he called the media “toxic.” England will have to be renamed The Salty Isle, or perhaps Big Mad Kingdom after the Oprah interview, I’m absolutely sure. Because if these people are THIS mad about Harry being cute on an American TV show, it’s going to be a thousand times worse after the Oprah interview. That’s one thing I’m not looking forward to, quite honestly. While I know I should just shrug it off, it’s painful to see this clown show desperately reach for the worst, most disrespectful commentary on the Sussexes. Sigh… let’s get into it. The Daily Mail thoughtfully compiled all of the worst commentary from the predictable people:

The Palace hates the timing of the Corden interview: Critics have questioned the timing of his ‘prancing’ TV appearance, released last night just as the Queen gave a rare public statement encouraging all Britons to ‘think about others’ and have the Covid-19 jab. Palace sources told MailOnline the timing of Harry’s TV appearance is ‘unhelpful, and has caused ‘disquiet’ at the palace, especially with Prince Philip spending his 11th day in hospital battling a nasty infection. ‘When the Queen speaks as she has done about the vaccine it is accepted that she has a clear field’, the insider said.

Robert Jobson could not shut up: ‘Timing is everything isn’t it. On the day that the Queen has issued a very, very important message about the whole of the nation getting the jab, that message has sort of been blurred by Harry, the man who wants a private life, talking about his private life again’.

Phil Dampier says words: ‘As The Queen urges us to think of others, Prince Harry prances about in LA and makes the absurd claim that he hasn’t walked away from the royals. What planet is he on? Hollywood I suppose.’

How dare Harry! One senior source said, ‘This blurring of the lines doesn’t help anyone. When the Queen speaks like this it is her message that should be heard without other distractions. This lack of coordination is unhelpful.’ The Late Show appearance came hours after the Queen had made a historic intervention in the coronavirus vaccination drive, suggesting it is selfish not to have the jab. A senior royal source said: ‘It is a passionately held belief that people need to get out there [and get vaccinated] – this is important.’ Critics say Harry’s appearance will water down her message.

Jobson seems especially upset that Harry is happy: ‘Well he seems in a very chirpy mood, very happy. All this talk about him being unhappy in LA doesn’t seem to be true. He’s talking candidly and James Corden’s asking the right questions. But unfortunately, everything’s in timing, isn’t it? Just on the day that the queen has issued a very, very important message about the whole of the nation getting the jab, and her, and she feels it’s people’s duty to go and get it, that message has sort of been blurred a little bit again by Harry, the man who wants a private life, talking about his private life again. I’m sure there’s just a lack of co-ordination here, but that’s half of the problem I think. The reality is I’m sure the Royal Family will be speaking about the vaccination going forward, giving a clear message and duty they’ve got, and Harry seems hell bent talking about his private life.

Royal photographer Arthur Edwards is also very mad: He told ITV’s Good Morning Britain he was ‘surprised’ by the prince saying he’d faced a ‘toxic’ time with the media, saying he had a good relationship with him until Meghan arrived. ‘I don’t know where ‘toxic’ has come from. When I worked with him all those years, he engaged with the media – we used to have a drink, on every tour we’d go to the pub and he used to get everything off his chest and you’d get everything off your chest. It’s only when he met Meghan that stopped. He never interacted with us again.’

[From The Daily Mail]

Yes, the fact that the Queen basically called anti-Vaxxers stupid and selfish was kind of notable, but surely, the royal commentators could simply… talk about that more? Like, do they realize that they could actually set the agenda and say “I don’t think Harry’s thing was all that important, the biggest story of the day was the Queen telling off anti-Vaxxers.” But they can’t do that, because they know that Harry’s video was important, and that he’s the one who gets attention no matter what he says or does. Plus, he’s the one out there, doing what he wants without filtering his message through THEM. Which is why they’re so mad. The Queen is still dependent on these a–holes to get any message out. Also: Arthur Edwards is such a sad sack, every time he’s quoted, he brings up the fact that Harry had a drink with journalists once, like it was the highlight of Edwards’ life.

    These people need to get a life! Like they are the ones writing this sh1t, they can choose to ignore Harry and write about the Queen’s message. So bizarre.

    • Edna says:

      IKR!! How obtuse does their audience have to be not to stop and realize that what the media reports is entirely in their control. And if the media wanted the Queen’s message to be front and center it would be. The media doesn’t have to stalk and report on everything the Sussexes do. Goes to show there is no real journalism being done by the British media.

      • LahdidahBaby says:

        So exactly right, Edna!

      • Sunday says:

        100%. It’s totally bizarre to have wall-to-wall coverage of how selfish Harry is for stealing the Queen’s spotlight when those same exact “reporters” could simply cover the Queen with the same fervor that they’re doing for this. It’s even more bizarre that the general public in these markets doesn’t seem to grasp this and demand better from their media.

      • GraceB says:

        People do see through it. The average British folk rarely talk about the royals and yet I saw one or two people share Harry’s interview on facebook. I can’t say I’ve seen or heard a single person I know talk about the Royals since Prince George was born. My grandparents certainly would have followed everything they’re doing though.

        There aren’t that many people who actually believe everything they read in the tabloids. They just take it as lighthearted gossip. I think that’s perhaps where a bigger problem lies. The fact that lots of people will read this stuff as nothing more than lighthearted entertainment when it’s actually people’s lives but by consuming this stuff, they’re feeding into it. So actually are all of we, I guess.

      • Eleonora says:

        @GraceB, it’s my experience too.
        British people never mentioned the Royal family to me, apart from 1 or 2 when there’s a wedding or birth. Even then it’s like: “why can’t this be a day off for us too, lol” and that’s about it.

    • Chic says:

      Do you think RR and RF realize that THEY could hav avoided this? Hate the game not the players

    • Chelsea says:

      Right? And it is not like he gave the interview to a British publication or something. This was on US tv! They’re not required to report on something that didnt even air in their country; they chose to.

      • Wiglet Watcher says:

        It’s hilarious how the BM trips over themselves to talk about the Sussex every move. They’re keeping them in all the steadily news cycles.

      • (TheOG) Jan90067 says:

        I think the big elephant in the room is how Ol’ Brenda moved her Commonwealth Speech to the same day that H&M’s Oprah interview is on. Petty Betty was first scheduled on the 8th, actually CW Day; she’s even going to incorporate the 7 Malevolent Martyrs to join the vid. Now, it’s moved to the 7th to air BEFORE Oprah’s show, because of the time difference. Hmmm… Guess she couldn’t get the time zones to “coordinate” with her either.

        It just truly is beyond comprehension how grown adults cannot seem to comprehend “public life” and “private life”. H&M NEVER SAID they would never have press coverage, but that it would be for their PUBLIC life, the part that is devoted to their WORK/CHARITIES. Things that have to do with their FAMILY LIFE is what they consider PRIVATE. Doesn’t take a rocket scientist to understand the difference.

    • Indiesr says:

      But I thought no one cares about Harry & Megan, they are irrelevant…this was stated by the British press. So how can irrelevant people keep overshadowing the BRF??
      It’s mind boggling…really.

    • Lorelei says:

      It also makes no sense…it’s not as if everyone still watches everything live. Families don’t all gather around the tv like in the olden days, lol. Most people either read about things or watch clips online the next day. I watched Harry’s appearance yesterday on YouTube.

      But 1) we already know these people are dinosaurs stuck in the past, and 2) they had to find an anti-Harry angle, so they went with this. Whoever wants to hear the Queen’s message so much can still play it; these people need to calm down and realize how asinine they sound.

      @Jan, it’s also so annoying that they keep going on about “PRIVACY!!” It’s not as if Harry gave James a tour of his house, showed him what was in their refrigerator, let the camera crew into his bedroom, went over his finances, etc. for Christ’s sake. They can’t seem to make this distinction.

      • Well, that’s all the RR have left to froth at the mouth over except trying to get their titles removed or encouraging a divorce. So, for now, it’s “PRIVACY” and “TIMING” because stripping their titles would take an act of Parliament and it’s obvious to even them that the Sussexes have a strong, healthy, loving relationship.

      • L4frimaire says:

        I live on the West Coast so the only reason I watched it was because I saw it mentioned on East coast Twitter. Had no idea it was airing before that. This would have first aired at 12:35 am EST, which is 5:35am GMT. Was the Queen talking about vaccines at 5:30 in the morning local time? These people are ridiculous.

      • Eleonora says:

        Yeah, and the thing is, if you have to keep into account all the “special” days, you can’t do anything.

        There’s always gonna be a birthday, pregnancy announcement, birth, wedding, wedding anniversary, anniversary of Queen’s reign, special days like Commonwealth Day and even if there’s not, the Queen is making a speech.

    • Beth says:

      They’re using Harry’s to cover the fact that most people are so angry at the queen for telling the country to take the vaccine and not be selfish. You shd see the backlash she’s receiving on various SM platforms. People are lamenting how dare she calls us selfish when she’s living in a magnanimous palace funded by our taxes while kids live in poverty, upsurge in homelessness, yet she’s siphoning money from our taxes.

      BBC is no more credible or legitimate, they’ve joined the cesspool of tabloids with their propaganda, just unbelievable! None of the anger expressed by the masses was reported. Our press is the most manipulative and toxic media in the world.
      There was a petition last week signed by over 50k Brits to change laws about the monarchy. Im sure none of you heard it because the royal sycophantic right wing papers wouldn’t report it. People are calling for any laws that made to favour the royals to be reviewed by parliament. Only the guardian reported it. We have a big problem in the UK. I’m so glad Scotland is fighting for independence. They hate the monarchy. The press and media are not fit for purpose over here.

      • Hell Nah! says:

        This is so very interesting (and encouraging to hear). Thanks for shedding some light in a very dark, manipulated space.

      • LaraW” says:

        Wow- you’re right, I had no idea about any of the things you mentioned. I understand that this is a gossip site and obviously not a place to look for coverage of the current political environment in the UK, but if the British public’s reactions are being confined to social media, how can an international audience truly gauge the sentiments of the liberal segment of the UK? From everything I’ve read in the comments on this site, it seems like conservatives have a stranglehold on the main media outlets, giving them a disproportionate presence. Also, I know that most people don’t care about the royals, but I feel like keeping the hatred and focus on H&M among those who do care really is like bread and circuses to distract from the rest of what’s happening.

      • Nyro says:

        The queen is terrible at her job. Just terrible. Her political instincts are non-existent. You don’t get to sit in a taxpayer funded ivory tower for 95 years and call people selfish. There were a dozen other ways to get her point across without making people feel attacked or judged. But then that would require one to be emotionally intelligent.

      • Lorelei says:

        @Beth I echo the others thanking you for this comment. IMO the commenters on this site are some of the smartest, most diverse people I’ve encountered online and I’m consistently surprised by how many new things I learn here. Sometimes it will be completely unrelated to the post, but a particular thread will take off on a tangent and after reading it, I’ll feel like I learned more than I did in a year’s worth of history class!

        There have been a few times I wished the site’s name was different because I think a lot of people automatically write it off based on the name, assuming it’s like one of the many vapid celebrity gossip sites, when in reality it is on a totally different level. I also love that the commenters here are from all over the world and not just primarily American. I can’t even count the number of new things I’ve learned about her; things that I would never have known about otherwise. It’s really a great site.

    • BabsORIG says:

      I am confused. What British TV airs the Corden show, is it the same one that aired both prince Harry and the queen? But even if its the same one, can the British people only digest one TV show at a time? Is there only ONE TV network in Britain? Because from what the RR say, the British watch only one TV station because they are so dumb they can’t handle multiple shows from multiple TV stations!!
      And these complaints are just weird; they complain about the Sussexes over shadowing everyone, yet the media are the one’s refusing to write about and cover everyone else in their articles and news coverage and devote ALL their time talking about the Sussexes. The Sussexes don’t control the British media now do they?

      • Amy Too says:

        I think people outside the US probably had to watch it on YouTube. Meaning they had to seek out and could watch it (or not) at any time they wanted. It’s not like it was airing opposite or directly before or after the Queen’s speech on UK network TV.

    • ➕💯 LADY LUNA Kaiser’s commentary (the RR are pathetic) and your comment (the RR are the ones talking about Harry instead of the Queen) says it all. Also, the Sun has set on the British Empire. Just because their Queen makes a statement to her ‘people’, doesn’t mean what she says is of interest to every other country. Life goes on.

    • Missskitttin says:

      They probably think that the Queen is important worldwide and that we care what she says. They probably think that the US watches the Queen’s speeches. Moreover, I think they are deflecting all the sh&t befalling their island because of Brexit by spewing Harry and Meghan gossip. The UK is going down right before our eyes and all they can talk about is H&M.

      • bamaborn says:

        @MissKittin… exactly! Beginning to wonder if things are getting so bad there, they are using the Sussexes’ to gaslight all the real issues happening on that island. They’ve gone beyond bizarre.

    • khaveman says:

      Why does the Queen even need to do a message about shots? Either people get them or they won’t. Also, just fill this in daily/weekly: “The RF are mad at the Sussexes about XYZ.” It’s such an overly beaten drum.

      • Lorelei says:

        @KHaveman that’s a good point— I wonder how many people actually changed their minds and decided to get a vaccine because Liz told them to. My guess would be….well, not many.

    • Louise177 says:

      The hypocrisy is too funny. Reporters who do five stories every time the Sussex’s sneeze had barely covered the Queen’s address. They’er the ones who overshadow the Queen. Also they are non-working Royals, living in a different continent. Why are they being covered so heavily? Especially since the British media keeps saying they are irrelevant. I thought they said they weren’t going to cover the Sussex’s when they stepped down last year.

    • Elizabeth Phillips says:

      Yes, plus I guarantee the courtiers found out when Harry’s episode was going to run and deliberately scheduled the Queen’s speech for that day so they could blame Harry for existing.

    • GrnieWnie says:

      Exactly! And…do they realize that they could have used Harry’s thunder to prop up the queen had they actually made him want to stay active? You don’t get to squander your assets and then whine that your assets…are no longer assets. The rationale here. It’s bizarre.

  2. Elizabeth Regina says:

    Everyone is losing their Sh**t over that video with James Corden and this is just the beginning. Harry came across as so likeable the British Media and rota rats can’t stand it. The royal family should prepare to get overshadowed for life. The Sussexes don’t have to coordinate diaries with them anymore. The RF should never thrown their own flesh and blood to the wolves in the first place.

    • Lorelei says:

      @ElizabethRegina, I think that’s really it. They probably knew it already, but now it’s clear to the entire world that they lost their star. They know the Cambridges will never — over decades — provide anything as fun and interesting as Harry’s 17 minutes was, and so they keep lashing out. They know how badly they screwed up.

      At some point they need to get over their hurt feelings, stop hurling their toys out of their playpens, and start doing their jobs of covering the other members of the BRF instead of constantly bitching about Harry and Meghan.

    • Amy Too says:

      I think it’s funny how the British royal reporters are changing their criticism from “Harry came off as idiotic and embarrassed himself by being too fun and too casual, and also what’s with Haz? That’s dumb,” to “yeah he came off well and James asked the right questions, and Harry does seem happy but the timing!” It’s obvious that pretty much everyone who watched this video anywhere in the world loved it and thought it was charming and funny and great, and that Harry came off so well and happy and down to earth and sweet and hot and physically fit, and Meghan looked beautiful and was calm and cool and able to laugh, and that she and Harry obviously love each other and have cute nicknames (just like every other couple!), and that he doesn’t hate his grandparents and that his issue is with the press. So when they got that pushback on their first articles about how he came off stupidly and it was a terrible interview and so embarrassing, they had to switch to the whole timing thing. And now they’ll probably get pushback on the timing and press coverage thing when people say “uh.. YOU GUYS get to decide what you cover and you CHOSE to overshadow the Queen with all your coverage of Harry.” I’m guessing they’ll go more along the lines of “Harry talks about his private life despite wanting to be private and never speak to press ever again in his life!” Or “William and Charles are aghast/incandescent with rage that Harry didn’t mention them and how great they are in his interview.”

      And I expect we’ll get the same sort of stuff with the Oprah interview. The press will pick the absolute dumbest angle to focus on, something that everyone will disagree with, like “Thomas Markle is sad that he wasn’t mentioned,” or “Harry and Meghan showed a new photo and Harry wasn’t wearing cuff links—so undignified!” or “Meghan wore a dress that cost $$$,” and then they’ll switch to something else that people still won’t think is a good take, and then something else, and something else until they either hit on the right thing that people are interested in (like maybe if H and M mention anything specific or even hinting about bad behavior from will and Kate) or they run out of steam and start reporting on something new that the Sussexes are doing.

      I think it shows how absolutely insular and out of touch the royals and their reporters are when they can’t read the room at all and focus on the stupidest, least offensive things, thinking that THIS is the “gotcha!” article that will finally drag Harry and Meghan down. Like focusing on how Harry is too fun and friendly as some kind of criticism that proves he’s not royal? No one is anti-fun and anti-friendly. People liked him before when he was a royal because he was fun and friendly. People wish the other royals were more fun and friendly. Or focusing on how he called the press toxic? No one is going to get as mad about that as the press themselves. No one is going to be like “oh no, the poor press, they can’t hit back at that statement at all, how unfair, I am so upset on the press’s behalf because I identify so much with the massive, global, powerful institution of the press as opposed to actual the human people who were hurt by the press!” The things that people talked most about were how good natured he was when the cart fell on him, how he kept being surprised at the things he was allowed to do now that he would never be allowed to do as a working royal in the UK, the military obstacle course and how fit Harry was but how he was also such a team player and helped James along the way, the waffle maker and the zooms with his grandparents, and him sticking his head out the bathroom window. It’s like the press has no idea what things are actually press-worthy and interesting to the public. Which is why they always focus on the wrong things and make the royals looks aloof, cold, distant, angry, above everyone else, and unrelatable.

    • gm says:

      I saw it and Harry does come across well, charming, likeable. IMO Meghan won’t as much, to me she comes across too earnest, or in the engagement interview too much and with Oprah it will be more of the same (again IMO). Not that that excuses the way the British media attacks her (OMG the avocado thing alone, the racism, they analyze every little thing she does way way too much and in a mean spirited nasty way..) They have left and they still harp on her, so she must still sell for them so for those who say she and Harry are of no consequence they don’t act like it, cause they seem obsessed by them.

  3. ABritGuest says:

    Sorry CBS didn’t run it’s schedule past Buckingham Palace & the Queen’s embargoed zoom. If BP wanted that type of control on the Sussexes’ events they could have tried work out a compromise with the Sussexes on their roles but they didn’t so oh well.

    Someone googled how many Telegraph, Mail, Express articles of Harry’s 17 min clip versus the Queen’s vaccine comments & it was much much less. The media could have given the Queen more focus but they choose not to so why are they blaming Harry?

    Love how Jobson is like the reports on Harry being unhappy don’t seem true. Erm didn’t those reports come from his colleagues.

    Arthur and Angela Levin are up there with the most obsessed with Harry. I hope the Cambridge’s learn not to allow too much access to people like this.

    As I said on another post- Arthur’s paper was happy to run all type of nasty Meghan stories even after the engagement news & Arthur then took photos of Thomas for one of his first newspaper interviews where he lied about the Sussexes not helping him & all types of rubbish. So yeah no surprise Harry didn’t engage with him after.

    • Mila says:

      Exactly what is said ‘NO half in half out’, they ‘CAN’T have their cake and eat it too!’, simply not the Sussex business anymore, that’s what the compromise was for but they didn’t like it and were being too cocky 🤷🏾‍♀️

      • Becks1 says:

        Agree with all your points!! They had a chance to coordinate schedules etc and they said no. So, Harry and Meghan will do their own thing.

        And lmao that they are acting like Harry chose the timing of this segment to air. Maybe he had some small say (like “late February” or something) but CBS is doing its own thing too – they aren’t running anything by Buckingham. Why on earth should a US company have to coordinate with the British queen???

      • Ginger says:

        February sweeps is the last Friday in February and this was obviously for that. Someone said that exactly 1 year ago, James did carpool karaoke with BTS and it was huge.

      • Amy Too says:

        What I find so funny is that the RRs and the BRF seem to think that a half in/half out compromise would have been too beneficial to Harry and Meghan, and that’s why they said no, when Harry and Meghan and all of us know they were offering half in/half out as a beneficial compromise to the family. H and M knew how huge they were/are/will be and how much attention they command. They were willing to keep their connection with the family so that they wouldn’t constantly be stepping all over them and so that some of their shine and attention would reflect back on the family but the family is so stuck up and stupid that they thought THEY were the super important ones that would be sharing THEIR shine and popularity with H and M and because they’re petty AF, they set the Sussexes completely free and now they’re thriving and overshadowing. As the Sussexes knew they would. 😆

      • Tasz says:

        @Amy Too – what I find funny is, according to Finding Freedom, the palace had the audacity to call Oprah and quiz her regarding her intentions with Doria. Now Oprah has the palace twisting in the wind, scared of simple questions and looking weak. Way to go Oprah! Take those amateurs to school. Hahahaha. Sorry for the petty but well…

    • AnnaKist says:

      Yep. They allowed the media, and some family members, to treat Harry and Meghan like the bastards at the family reunion, and worse. One word from a senior Royal in the right ears would have done wonders for family relations. But, no. Bill a,d Cathy are the special ones, so why would Harry and Meghan want to stick around to be treated abysmally? No negotiation, no help, nothing from the “family”. And now they can’t take the fact that they have no control over what the Sussexes do or say, and to whom. For what it’s worth, I believe they will conduct themselves with dignity, decorum and respect, all of which his family denied them.

      • ennie says:

        Cannot reply directly to AMYTOO , but what you said is the absolute truth.

        Going on over 9 million views just in youtube, in Facebook I just checked and it is over 11 million views. Incidentally, the dislikes were quick to appear in youtube, but the video has been liked much more now, and in FB , strangely, the dislikes are much, much lower.
        The bots have been loose posting all over thetop comments , disinformation about their leaving the UK.

    • Noodle says:

      @abritguest, It’s quite rude of Harry to have his interview, which he clearly has the power to broadcast via CBS to the US on the schedule of his choosing, to steal attention away from TQ. How dare he. /s

      The rota canNOT be this dumb, right? They’re pretending to be this dumb to rile the loyal readers?

      • Wiglet Watcher says:

        It’s not about how dumb they are because they’re knowingly not making a logical argument. They’re only gaslighting like the abusive ex you cut out of your life that’s still obsessed with you.

        It’s hilarious the BM doesn’t care about the royals they have. They only ever mention them as a tool to use in ranting about the Sussex.

      • Noodle says:

        @wigletwatcher, that’s what I thought too, but then so many of them are so butt hurt that he’s not drinking a pint at the pub with them. I can see the toxic, emotional manipulation, for sure, but it’s weird to me that they keep coming back to “but he was one of us!” type arguments. So much cognitive dissonance.

    • windyriver says:

      TQ has certainly changed her tune; at the time of her vaccination it was made clear this was personal, they didn’t feel they should have to talk about it, and only did so to prevent speculation and misinformation. Now, she’s suddenly quite chipper discussing how easy it was.

      But, the fact is, she and Philip were vaccinated at the beginning of January, which means she’s had weeks to get this message out, weeks when Harry and Meghan had a very low profile news wise. It’s unfortunate TQ’s message clashed with CBS’ schedule, but the RF knows things are ramping up with the Sussexes, that Corden was filming with Harry, in addition to the Oprah interview – and in any event, the media has a choice about how much space to give to what TQ has to say about a public health emergency.

      And yes, I remember Arthur Edwards saying exactly the same thing about him and Harry and drinks down the pub, at the time Meghan was expecting Archie. Let it go folks, it’s over, they’re gone and not coming back.

      • Chaine says:

        You are so right! She could have made an even huger impact back when she had it done by allowing it to be filmed and broadcast! Who really cares that now almost 2 months later, she mentions on a zoom that people ought to have it. She has made the least possible effort to publicize the cause; must be taking tips from CEO Kate.

      • Lorelei says:

        @WindyRiver I think they’d truly deluded themselves into thinking Harry actually considered them friends. So they’re hurt on a personal level. But ffs they are (allegedly 🙄) PROFESSIONALS so they’ve really got to find a way to move on and find a way to do their jobs with the BRF members they still have.

        And I think Kaiser was right, that having drinks with Harry that one time WAS the highlight of Edwards’ life, because he never shuts up about it. Isn’t he like 70? Doesn’t he have a life outside of this, a family, hobbies, whatever? Because a lot of them truly act as if Harry broke up with them when he met Meghan, and now they spend their time openly pining for him. It’s unhinged.

        Was it Rebecca English who wrote that whole essay which was basically a love letter to Harry a few months ago? The whole dynamic with the ROTA is warped and a bit disturbing imo.

      • Yeah, WINDY RIVER ….Arthur Edward’s moaning over his drink with Harry and Piers Morgan over his drink with Meghan. Those 2 are their very own pity party aren’t they?

      • NotSoSocialButterfly says:

        In spite of the vaccine ( did they get second doses?), with Philip in hospital more than a week and a half, and stated to have an “infection,” I have to wonder if he has COVID.

      • notasugarhere says:

        It wasn’t as if it was a private drink with Edwards. When on tour, Harry used to do off the record pub nights with any of the press pack who were there. Once they went all-in attacking Meghan, he stopped doing those. Then we got Edwards the Abusive demanding to be introduced to Meghan personally, after which they’d maybe be nicer to her. Harry and Meghan said no, Edwards continues to whine.

  4. Zen says:

    Oh they are so ridiculous about ‘timing’. Harry filmed the interview at least a week maybe more ago. He doesn’t control when Corden actually airs it. No time would have been right. If the Queen hadn’t spoken about the vaccine they would have been saying he shouldn’t be doing this while Phil is in hospital. The tabloids just make a soap opera about everything. Yes they should have focused on the Queen’s message. They are the ones that continually write and talk about H&M and yet accuse them of always being out in public and not being ‘private’. When Meghan was being private during her first pregnancy they wouldn’t stop writing vicious things about her. So H&M are never going to get it right because the tabloids want them to be the villains.

  5. Mila says:

    ‘WHY CAN’T I TALK ABOUT YOUR LIFE IF YOU ARE GOING TO TOO!! 🤬🤬’ I love their tears!

  6. S808 says:

    They wanted a hard exit and all that came with it. Not coordinating schedules is apart of that. And yeah, RRs could simply choose to focus on the Queen. Harry and Meghan aren’t forcing them to cover their activities. They’re not working royals any longer so RRs shouldn’t be concerning themselves.

    • Edna says:

      I think it was the Camillia Tominey woman who said something to the effect that “ they keep doing things, so we have to write/talk about them.” No, you don’t. They are no longer working members of the Royal Family and live an ocean and continent away. Focus on the RF in the U.K. and leave the Sussexes alone.

      • Couch potato says:

        “They keep doing things” LOL! Talk about telling on the rest of the RF! If the rest of the family kept “doing things” they would have plenty to write about them instead.

      • Lorelei says:

        What BS. They don’t cover every single thing that Zara, Beatrice, the Duke of Gloucester, and on and on down the list, do. Nice try Tominey, but we know you need the £ that only Sussex stories will bring in.

      • Spanky says:

        I agree. And just wait until May/June, when things really start to heat up in Scotland. That’s when the “secession” movement begins in earnest. Not to mention that Ghislaine Maxwell’s trial is supposed to begin in July. The UK and RF has some heavy sh** coming their way this summer. If the BM thinks that Harry is a problem for giving an interview to Corden, they don’t know what real trouble is.

      • Poor Tominey! She may feel the RR has to keep writing about them, but they don’t have to be so toxic in their writing. I call BS. She and the rest write about the Sussexes because stories about them sell and the RR aren’t journalists, their hacks working for a paycheck. However, nothing says the articles have to be so nasty, that’s totally on the RR.

  7. Amelie says:

    Lmao. Well that’s the fault of the UK press. They chose to cover Harry’s appearance and talk about it mire than the Queen. It isn’t Harry’s fault. Oh well. The press over there is just ridiculous.

  8. Osty says:

    They interrupted their programme to talk about harry , they ignored their queen to talk about harry,the most engagement the queen has gotten is her being inserted in stories ab
    Harry .
    But most importantly if they don’t want harry to steal her thunder of any one else ,then they can ignore him and concentrate on the queen and the other magnificent 7

    • Lucy2 says:

      EXACTLY!!!
      They are in control of the coverage, and using that coverage to complain that he gets more coverage than she does. Lol.

      • Lorelei says:

        It’s kind of funny to see how genuinely stupid and ignorant they are; that they don’t realize this and are actively making themselves look like idiots.

      • ennie says:

        The british media could choose to stop writing about H&M just as they don’t write much about Prince Pedo. Why don’t they?

    • GuestWho says:

      wait…wait…speaking of the magnificent 7. over the weekend there was an article in the Fail (I think) that was touting Charles, Anne, Edward and Sophie as the new fab 4. When will they understand that the iteration of these boring people will never mater? None of them are magnificent, and none of them are fab.

      But your point is on point – if they didn’t cover two people happily living 6000 miles away, there would be plenty of time and space to discuss the Queen’s riveting speeches.

      • Betsy says:

        Charles, Anne, Edward and Sophie all perform their royal duties (such as they’re expected to do so), so I can’t fault them for that. But where are William and Kate in all this? Just allowed to go on zooming endlessly? I’m not clicking over so I don’t know.

      • Lorelei says:

        @GuestWho…you cannot be serious! Those are the new “fab four?” I’m screaming.

        Thoughts and prayers to whoever’s job it is to get this to catch on 😂

  9. Snuffles says:

    If the QUEEN can’t command attention in HER OWN COUNTRY because of something happening a CONTINENT AWAY, that is on HER.

    Also, if the press truly believed her message was important, they could have elevated the news pieces on her speech and just treated Harry’s appearance as a footnote. But, NO, the press dropped the Queen’s message like a hot potato, and got all up in their feelings because Harry confirmed, for the BILLIONTH TIME, they he hates their asses.

    Just because Harry was polite and professional with them in the past, doesn’t mean they were besties. And, let’s be real, he was probably just collecting intel on them so he can understand his enemies better.

    • Lorelei says:

      @Snuffles, ITA with your last paragraph so much. I said above that I think they’d deluded themselves into thinking that Harry considered them to be personal friends, when it’s immediately obvious to all of us that it was a strategy on Harry’s part. They are a pathetic group, my god.

  10. Noki says:

    They literally make a dumb article based on every sentence he said and try to make some journalist angle from it. So Lord help us with the 90 minute interview,it will be hundreds of senseless articles.

    • Edna says:

      I hope Oprah makes a point of showing the absurdity in which the BM/RRs stalk and write up fiction on the Sussexes. Just praying Oprah goes scorched earth on them.

      • LahdidahBaby says:

        She really needs to do exactly that. This is becoming more absurd every day. H&M are simply living their own life. That was the whole idea of their leaving. I suggest the BRF stop focusing on everything H&M do and putting out nasty, resentful little barbs to the British press.

      • Snuffles says:

        The only thing I am sure of is that Oprah and her producers, Meghan AND Harry are gonna take a flamethrower to the British Tabloid media. They’re gonna feel that burn for eternity.

      • GuestWho says:

        Beyond showing the “monstering” of Meghan, I hope Oprah takes the opportunity to show how the BM has low-key started attacking HER since the announcement of the interview came out.

  11. Sofia says:

    It’s not Harry’s fault if reporters choose to write about him instead of the monarch. The problem isn’t with Harry, it’s with said reporters who are ready to foam at the mouth whenever the Sussexes breathe.

  12. Desert Lizard says:

    Funny how the BM and the RF collaborated to bully Meghan and Harry and are now upset bc they got what they wanted. They’ve thought all along -and said in their coded way- that Meghan isn’t good enough (white enough) to be part of the RF. Harry, Meghan, and Archie are gone now and so is any control the Palace ever had. They all thought Harry would be miserable without the RF but the truth is Harry has a woman he loves who loves him in return. She supports him in whatever he wants to do as he does her. I doubt anyone in the RF has ever had such a healthy, loving relationship and they cannot stand that he is not suffering away from them.

    • Snuffles says:

      Anyone remember that FRIENDS episode where Monica and Phoebe were planning Rachel’s surprise birthday party. Phoebe got mad because Monica took over and only let Phoebe be in charge of cups and ice.

      Then Phoebe took the challenge and was like “Monica is gonna rue the day she put me in charge of cups and ice!” Then she decorated the whole apartment with cups, made party hats with them and brought in a snow cone machine that everyone in the party ate. And Monica was pouting in the corner that everyone was not eating her finger food and were filling up on snow cones instead.

      Monica is the Royal family and British Press and Phoebe is Harry turning the scraps he was given into party gold.

  13. Mia4s says:

    Pathetic beyond belief. I don’t know how real British journalists abide these Royal leeches…sorry, “experts”.

    Look all I heard when the media started ranting is that apparently the British people are on the slow-witted side and cannot possibly hold two thoughts in their heads at the same time on the same day. Is that really the message the British people want out there? Really?

    • BeanieBean says:

      That was my takeaway. British peeps can’t handle more than one royal news story at a time. Their pointy little heads can’t take it.

  14. Sandra says:

    The queen has barely said a damn thing about Covid. NOW she wants everyone to shut up? Didn’t Sophie just give a rare glimpse inside her home? Was she supposed to shut up too?
    PS – this was on American tv dum dums. We’ve got enough of our own problems that I don’t think anyone cares about a message from not our Queen here.

    • Ginger says:

      Agreed. This was an American tv show and it was for American audiences. Why are they so upset? We don’t care what the Queen has to say about the vaccine here in the states. The British press should have covered the Queen more than Harry. It’s their fault not Harry’s or CBS.
      .

    • anotherlily says:

      There was also a story about Sophie having trained as a St John Ambulance Volunteer and working her first shift in a vaccination centre. It looks as if the Queen’s Tuesday zoom call was released on Thursday to coincide with Sophie’s work in the vaccination centre. The James Corden show was recorded two weeks before the Queen’s zoom call so the Palace knew when it would be shown and chose to ‘clash’ by releasing the Queen’s zoom on the same day.

      • Sandra says:

        “ so the Palace knew when it would be shown and chose to ‘clash’ by releasing the Queen’s zoom on the same day.”
        I see where the RF’s priorities really lie with wiping out Covid, then.

      • windyriver says:

        It appears that also on Tuesday (as per People) Will and Kate did a Zoom call where several high risk individuals and their families discuss how they’re looking forward to getting vaccinated. Looks like it was released yesterday? The timing of all this is very interesting.

        Meanwhile, Kate really looks like practically a Meghan clone in that video. Straight hair, tiny jewelry, v-neck white blouse (no Peter Pan collar!), blazer; and of course the couch-table-plants set up they adopted months ago. It’s pretty bizarre.

  15. lanne says:

    The press continues to prove Harry’s point with their ridiculous responses. They know damn well that Harry has no control over CBS schedule. They’re also angry because they have been given exactly what they asked for. They said to Harry: if you don’t like it, leave! And now they are mad for leaving? That photographer Arthur has given some of the most egregious commentary on Meghan. He’s the one who said that all of the photographers at her appearances would stand around talking about how overly sexual they found her. He’s another one who believes he has a relationship with Harry.

    They told the Sussexes to leave if they didn’t like their treatment. Well, now that the Sussexes are gone, they ought to stop covering them. The only people who want things both ways are the tabloids.

    • Spanky says:

      Arthur also said in an interview last year that he was SURE that harry would be coming back. Every time he talks, he always brings up the business of drinking beers with Harry, and how it all ended when Meghan arrived on the scene. Seriously, this guy acts like a 17-year-old fanboy who’s been jilted. Grow up dude. You’re in your 70s.

      • Amy Too says:

        And what was that whole thing he said about how they would meet up for a pint and Harry would get everything off his chest and then the royal reporters would get everything off their chest? You’re not in a romantic relationship! You are not equals or blokes or anything like that. You are there to report on what Harry does and says on tour, and if he doesn’t like the coverage or thinks it wasn’t fair or focused on the work, it makes sense that he would voice his discontent, because you are there at his request as members of the ROYAL rota. You are not there to dictate to Harry what he should be doing/saying and you don’t get to tell Harry you’re angry that he did this or didn’t do that, or shared this but not that, or you wish he would’ve posed better for whatever shot or given more quotable answers to your inappropriate questions. This is not a romantic relationship where you each compromise and work together to make sure both people are feeling happy, fulfilled, heard, and equally important and taken care of. Harry has zero responsibility to make sure that you’re getting all your physical, emotional, social, and professional needs met by him. You’re there FOR him. This isn’t a relationship he sought out, committed to of his own free will, and wants to nurture into something more.

      • lanne says:

        Great post, @AmyToo! These rota ratchets thought they were in a relationship with Harry and forgot they were there to do a job. Harry is not responsible for making sure their emotional needs are met, and for them to project their personal crap on Harry is why we all call them so inappropriate and unprofessional in their behavior. No one takes them seriously as professional because they aren’t acting like professionals. Lots of us have observed that they are acting like jilted lovers. Arthur edwards, piss Morgan, and Angela levin especially should be fired for harassment, and have restraining orders placed on them. Their only recourse now is to incite violence against the Sussexes. Morgan has already done that, and the rest of them have stepped right up to that line. It’s too bad that the royals seem bound to these fools, likely by inertia and laziness more than fear. This does not bode well at all for any of the royal kids. I wonder if Sophie and Edward are worried about how their kids will fare. The Cambridge kids have bright shiny targets on their back. For their sake, I hope the monarchy is disbanded before they come of age.

      • Lorelei says:

        The entire dynamic of the ROTA seems so dysfunctional and unhealthy for everyone involved. I’m not familiar with any other royal families, but maybe one of you will know if any besides the British have a similar mechanism in place to interact with the press?

        The ROTA might have started out with good intentions, to try and limit the crowds of reporters and photographers who would show up, and at the same time, make sure every publication in the UK had equal access to what the royals were up to so it could spread it out to its readers, but it has definitely outlived it’s usefulness and needs to go.

        Any boundaries that once existed between the reporters and the royals were decimated long ago, and more then a few of them seem to believe they actually have personal relationships with their subjects. It is beyond comprehension that a full year later, they’re all STILL acting like Harry broke up with them. They’ve lost all perspective, but I guess as long as Sussex stories bring in the clicks, this BS will continue and no editor will object.

        We’re in a different world with a different media landscape. This toxic little group of people are completely unnecessary in 2021. They see themselves as the ultimate gatekeepers to all royal activities/photos/documents/etc., and it’s created a truly abusive relationship with some of the royals. Hopefully something will change in the near future because this is absolutely obscene — Harry and Meghan moved an ocean and a continent away and are no longer working members of the family and they still get the most (scathing, awful, derisive) coverage out of all of the members of the entire British Royal Family on a daily basis?! Insanity. They’re like their own little cult.

        ETA: another reason to hope changes are made is that the thought of George, Charlotte, Louis and Archie being subject to this horrible arrangement makes me so sad. We know how wrong it is, but we all know it’s coming. The whole thing is a mess.

  16. Yoyo says:

    I LOL at a RR saying they have to run Oprah’s interview pass the Queen, she can control the island, but not CBS.
    This was an American TV Show, for an American audience mostly. The tabloids had a choice to ignore it and focus on bitter Betty, but they know they would not get the clicks.
    A 17 minutes clip, a blind person can hear Harry’s happy voice, another lie disprove, it must really piss off the BM to see Harry, Meghan and Archie happy after all the abuse they endured.
    They got what they wanted, so why should the Sussexes run anything by the houses of petty, this is why they wanted their freedom.

  17. Victoria says:

    I am not really the biggest fan of the SussexSquad Podcast but one thing I do love is Tina’s dragging ability. She is out here repping for us classy hood heffas.

    So, to borrow from her collection of eff yous, the BM and their vapid weirdo supporters can suck it from the back.

    No one is surprised that they managed to turn something that really had nothing to do with Britain or their stupid press releases from the BRF into exactly that

    Stay mad.

  18. Izzy says:

    So the Palace doesn’t control what the Sussexes do and when, but now they do? Which is it?

    ALL the BM had to do is run with the headline of Queen Tells Off Antivaxxers, and it would have caught attention. They are so bad at PR and communication strategy.

  19. Nic919 says:

    Anyone with a brain knows that Harry didn’t tell Corden or CBS when to air the interview and so the UK media going on about that is foolish. Besides the Queen’s video came out in time for the deadlines whereas the video came out in late night US time. That it was discussed in the UK morning shows immediately is on the UK media, especially if they thought the Queen’s video was more important.

    • Lorelei says:

      @Nic that’s one of the (many, obviously) things that bothers me so much about the ROTA’s bs— so much of it is so blatantly disingenuous and there’s no way even *they* believe what they’re spouting. They all know damn well that Harry had nothing to do with the scheduling of when this would air; that’s all CBS.

      They have such little self-respect. At some point, aren’t they embarrassed of their own behavior? That this is the way they’ve chosen to conduct their careers/professional lives, by acting like whiny little bitches every single day? They’re so obviously pathetic to the rest of the world.

      I’d be mortified to be the wife or child of one of these grown-ass men who spends their days sending snarky tweets and whining about the Sussexes. Get a life, my god.

      • Amy Too says:

        And based on the royal reporters’ criticism of Harry for letting his wife call him “Haz,” I’m assuming they all make their wives call them “Mr. Arthur Edwards,” etc. Did they think that Meghan would be calling her husband “HRH Prince Henry, the Duke of Sussex,” in all their casual conversations? Just another embarrassing look behind the curtain at how embarrassingly out of touch they all are.

  20. Amy Bee says:

    The press could have ignored Harry and just focused on the queen. But they know they can’t because anything that Harry does brings the clicks and the cash.

    • harla says:

      This is exactly what I’m saying too Amy Bee! The various editors have the ability to choose which stories they run with and obviously it’s much more important to them to smear and abuse the Sussex’s then it is to show their queen talking to the nation. But of course, they’ll use the Sussex’s to distract the public from the fact that they’re not doing their jobs correctly.

      • Amy Too says:

        The fact that Britain’s ROYAL reporters find anything the no-longer-actively-royal 6th in line does to be much more important, exciting, and newsworthy than the actual QUEEN of Great Britain, the pinnacle of royalty, the head of the ROYAL family is really proving the point that the royal family is not special because they’re royals, the Queen, the heir, the future heir and his wife are not inherently better, more royal, or more worthy of anything including press coverage. If their whole thing is they’re special because they’re royal and these royals are more special than these royals because they’re MORE royal, that’s all disproven when the royal reporters whose sole job is to report on the royal things that the royals do are not at all interested in them. Royals are just uninteresting, has-been celebrities at this point. They’re not inherently special because of their titles and patronages and medals and castles and palaces and HRHs when even the people who supposedly care so much about those things (royal reporters) aren’t taking any of those things into account when they decide who to report on.

        It just feels so ironic to me that the ROYAL REPORTERS, the people that the royal family work with pretty much exclusively to build them up and advertise their greatness, are proving that even they don’t care about the most senior royals, up to and including the literal Queen.

      • Lorelei says:

        @AmyToo exactly! They know that if Harry can “overshadow” even THE QUEEN just how screwed they are, and that their jobs have been exposed to basically be jokes; stenographers and unpaid PR for the royals.
        Their entire worldview has been upended and they don’t know how to deal with it.

      • (TheOG) Jan90067 says:

        Very astute take, Amy! And yet…they (RR/BM/BRF/RoyalRacists) will NEVER “get” this point.

    • Gail Hirst says:

      But they don’t really know that for sure, do they? They have never let the Queen shine on her own without bringing up Harry. If they had ignored Harry, and simply covered the Queen & Sophie, they have NO IDEA if they would get clicks/coverage because they have NEVER DONE IT!! They have never let Harry alone, so they have no clue as to what sort of leverage the Queen really has these days.

      • Lorelei says:

        @Gail that’s a good point. I’m afraid we’ll never know the answer because none of them have the self-control to go one day without dragging the Sussexes for something or other, while largely ignoring what the other family members are up to.

  21. Dollycoa says:

    He had a great relationship with the media until he fell in live with a mixed race woman and saw how racist and nasty they really are, then it all stopped. Surprise surprise.

    • VS says:

      He never had! there are plenty of videos of him blasting them, no one was paying attention it seems……but now it has to be because of Meghan!

      • Yoyo says:

        There even a video out there with a RR saying that in private Cain was friendlier with the press than Harry.
        They’re so many videos out there with Harry openly discussing his hatred of the press, one where he is army uniform and said he hated England because of the shite the press writes. It’s on Twitter.
        The BM said Meghan was thirsty for press, and then got pissed, that Harry never introduced her to them. Even Piss Moran said if she called him, he would ease off abusing her, he is still doing.

    • Amy Bee says:

      No the press’ relationship with Harry was always one sided. He always hated them but was made by KP to interact with them. The press’ terrible treatment of Meghan gave him the out to stop talking to them.

    • Yoyo says:

      He was on a late night talk show which deals with comedy.
      Harry is 36 years old, it’s his life, I think he had enough of people telling him what to do.

    • Ginger says:

      He never had a good relationship with them. He has stated so many times how much he hates them and living in England. He was forced to work with them before.

    • Edna says:

      Harry has always hated the BM and didn’t want to kick in England: https://twitter.com/ForumsMeghan/status/1365948373040308224?s=20

    • notasugarhere says:

      He had a good working relationship with them when he was at work, a contentious relationship with them during his private time. No wonder. They wrote lies about Harry for decades to make William look good, then went all-in attacking the love of Harry’s life.

  22. February-Pisces says:

    If harrys interview came out on pancake day, the carnival of clowns would say “HE’S STEALING ATTENTION FROM PANCAKE DAY!!!”. We’ve heard this so much.

    Also isn’t funny how the carnival of clowns haven’t talked much about how the queen got archie a waffle maker and how they talk on zoom? Funny how harry and Meghan getting along with this grandparents doesn’t seems to fit their narrative that they hate them.

    Saying they’re taking away from the queens “anti-vaccine’ message is their new way to re-start the faux conflict.

    Also is the queen getting involved with anti-Vaxers political? I would love it it everyone got the jab and can’t wait to get it, but I know a few who are unsure or can’t get it for various reasons. Such as those who are pregnant or have allergies can’t take it. I know a few others who have other health problems and are worried about the vax and how it will effect other medication. As much as I would love everyone to have it, I understand the trepidation with putting something into your body, I even get nervous taking the regular flu jab. Anti-maskers are worse, it literally required no effort to put one one.

    • Ginger says:

      Can you imagine if Harry and Meghan stayed and Meghan called out anti Vaxer’s ? They would have so many articles saying how political it was and breaking protocol,
      Etc…

      Thank God they got out.

    • Rose says:

      My OB has said that if you’re pregnant you can get the Covid vaccine and they recommend you do. Every other medical professional that I work with or who treats me has said the same.

    • Amy Too says:

      “HE’S STEALING ATTENTION FROM PANCAKE DAY!!!” And he’s promoting pancake’s nemesis: waffles!!!

      • Lorelei says:

        @FebruaryPisces I think he only threw in that waffle maker story to sort of throw a bone to the Queen; make it clear they’re still on good terms, and give her a tiny bit of good PR w/r/t Archie. I find it very hard to believe she actually Zooms with them on any sort of regular basis or cares what her office sent them for Christmas.

  23. Jewell says:

    The UK press are so desperate . I hope CBS blocks UK access to Meghans interview for at least 48 hours after its released here”so as not interfere with the Queen” and see how pissed off those reporters get.

  24. It is not Harry’s fault that these RRs gave his interview more prominence than the Queen’s. They could have reversed it. But these carnival of so-called royal experts knew they couldn’t. They knew they cannot get a million clicks from the Queen’s zoom call. No matter how much they hate Harry he (and Meghan) is the goose that lays them the golden eggs. Too bad they vilified him and his family. And besides how can you ignore him when his interview was trending worldwide. Whether they give him good or bad publicity, people are interested and will click anything Sussex. He generates revenue for them. They need him more than he needs them. It’s so difficult to ignore a global star no matter how much you may hate him because these RRs know they need him so they can pay their bills. Too late now they couldn’t get them to go back to the UK. They blew it big time.

  25. harla says:

    If the British press wanted the queen’s speech to be front and center then they should have put her front and center! The press are able to put forward stories that they deem relevant and shelve others so really it’s on the press for not putting Betty on every front cover.

    I have to say that this continued attitude and posture of the British tabloids is really reflecting poorly on the people of Britain who for the most part welcomed and supported Meghan. British citizens deserve better than to be represented to the world by this racist and misogynistic press.

  26. Yoyo says:

    So many different people pay attention to what Harry and Meghan say, there is an article in LiveScience about Crocodiles
    The author said the Sussexes are probably reading a book about crocodiles and their habitat to Archie.
    Now I know the difference between alligators and crocs, countries they’re in, what they eat, Waffle makers are flying off the shelf.

    • Gingerbee says:

      Now, I have to look up the difference between a croc and a gator😃

      • Lorelei says:

        I’m validated to know I’m not the only one who has no idea what the difference is!
        Archie is more knowledgeable than I am, lol.

  27. Ginger says:

    The British press are SO upset that Harry is getting worldwide praise for this appearance. A lot of the comments are calling the British press out for their untrue stories about them. Harry gave the Queen the best PR in the past few years. People love the waffle story. That was better than any of the stories the press and her staff make up. It makes them look awful.

    The press choose to cover Harry instead of the Queen. That’s not Harry’s fault, that’s the press. And Arthur Edwards needs to go away. He is incredibly creepy.

    • Gina says:

      Totally agree with you! I too thought about what Harry said about his grandparents and the impact these small stories have. He made these people real. His story about PP is something we can relate to. If not to the person then to situation. And the Queen. In a few words PH turned some distant figure with diamond tiara on her head into a real person.

  28. Liz version 700 says:

    The jealousy is so amazing. You would think the Queen of England would be secure enough to let it go. But no any positive press the Sussexes get results in a nasty story. While Petty Betty may not instigate the stories we know she never once tried to stop them. I love their petty tears.

    • Snuffles says:

      I honestly don’t think the Queen is driving this particular story line. This is just another way for the RRs to complain about losing control of the story line they created.

    It’s almost like the queen had a whole year to talk about the importance of masking and getting vaccinated 😭 whatever will people do now that Harry deprived them of this information. Tragic.

    • (TheOG) Jan90067 says:

      Let’s not forget, last June SHE made them have an “abbreviated” Trooping just for her…AND SHE REFUSED TO WEAR A MASK.

    I find it rather telling that all of those quotes have similar wording…”blurred” etc.

  31. Chelsea says:

    The interview has over 9.4 million views on youtube with 97%+ thumbs up and is the most viewed video on Corden’s channel in the last year not by a kpop artist. The reason for the kpop thing is that a lot of the viewers to Corden’s channel are Gen Z(he has a lot of highly viewed videos from Bieber, Harry Styles, 1D, and the like along side highly viewed videos featuring Michelle Obama and Paul McCartney). That is the point: to get him more access to a younger audience who was always going to like him more than other members of his family and to show him in a more relaxed environment. It’s a very good warm up for the Oprah interview as it is still trending two days later on Youtube and has peaked more interest in him from most demographics.

    • Nyro says:

      A clip of James calling himself a member of the BTS Army is going viral on Kpop Twitter, so yeah, they watched the interview. Lol. The rota rats better home the kpop stans don’t link up with the Sussex squad. They’ll never catch a break, LOL.

      • Snuffles says:

        As a member of the BTS Army, I can confirm, they don’t want that smoke. If they think Sussex Squad is bad, BTS Army is a million times more intense AND scarily coordinated. For example, when BTS donated $1 million dollars to the BLM movement, the ARMY matched that in 24 hours. We literally have our own business structures for every aspect of their careers.

      • Nyro says:

        That’s awesome. Much respect for the BTS Army and kpop stans in general. I love that, thanks to social media, fan bases are able to push back on the nastiness and abuse from these so-called journalists.

      • Beth says:

        Exactly. Only 2 days and the interview has amassed 10million views on YouTube. Never seen any record to match this , 2 days just 2days! And the comments section is such a joy to read. The overwhelmingly positive tone and encouragement towards Harry&Meghan is a delight. Way to go Harry and Meghan, even MTV and YouTube had to comment on the interview in the comment section plus the BTS squad. This is when you know you’re bigger than the institution

      • CrazyHeCallsMe says:

    • Lorelei says:

      It reminds me a little bit of when Obama went on Zack Galifianakis‘s show Between Two Ferns. It was wildly popular, I remember it being hilarious, and it definitely achieved the goal of showing people a little more of Barack’s sense of humor while reaching a mostly younger audience.

      But the next day, his usual critics all had the predictable (they could have been pre-written before the show even aired) criticisms, claiming it wasn’t “presidential,” didn’t befit the office of the President (which, now, looking back at that…scary how much the bar has been lowered), etc.

  32. Keroppi says:

    I’m surprised the palace didn’t declare/demand a bank holiday for such an occasion!

  33. Victoria says:

    How did it cheapen him? He and Meghan are building their images in America in lieu of their projects and philanthropy in a way that translated well over here. We don’t give a shit about titles or royalty but we do love humble, down to earth hard working people who happen to be well known.

    He came across as relatable and everything seemed very genuine. That’s what WE want to see. Well, the normal parts of America, not the MAGA loving weirdos.

    I was anti Harry for the longest and viewed him as Prince Nazi and I was indifferent to Meghan as I don’t really view her as an African American woman so her marrying into a racist, colonizing, awful family meant that any bullshit she dealt with was her problem because it was her choice. It wasn’t a WIN for US the way her stand like to say.

    What made me have a lot of respect for then was the class and courage they had to do better for themselves and their child by getting out of a toxic environment. Meghan married Harry for Harry and was willing to put up with that mess for him. He married her for her and because he knew she would only raise his consciousness and his character.

    Harry being MAN enough to protect his family and put his foot down even if it meant leaving behind everything he ever knew and yes, loved to experience a different kind of that that comes across as wholesome, pure and without strings changed my mind about him and Meghan.

  34. Harper says:

    Why is Queenie doing ANYTHING while her beloved Prince Philip is in HOSPITAL? I am personally aghast that she would appear smiling in a cheery-colored dress with makeup while her husband is forced to endure the misery of a hospital gown and thin-quality sheets and blankets, not to mention the indignity of having to eat hospital food. Anyway, saw on Twitter a discussion about some older men developing urinary tract infections and weakness after their Covid jabs, so perhaps this is what is ailing Prince Philip. Anyway, this nonsense from the British media is only good for ridiculing them. Haz was right in calling them out for writing fiction in a newspaper and as journalists, they are all failures at their craft.

    • (TheOG) Jan90067 says:

      First, you can be SURE PP isn’t “enduring the misery of a hospital gown and thin-quality sheets and blankets, not to mention the indignity of having to eat hospital food” lol. This man is in a PRIVATE room, with the best of EVERYTHING. Incl. his own doctors/nurses and chef.

      PP also has a history of UT infections (remember he came down w/a bad one after the Jubilee?). He’s had pneumonia a few times as well, and he IS 99.

      I’m sure if Old Brenda wanted to visit, that’d be allowed, esp. as she’s been vaccinated, and PP isn’t in a ward bed with 5 others. The fact that she HASN’T gone is interesting. Seems the only one who HAS gone is Charles.

      • Harper says:

        Yes, I’m sure he’s in the lap of medical luxury with a gold-plated patient ID and a four-poster bed that came from the Victoria & Albert Museum and his private chef locked in the room next door boiling his organic potatoes and peas. But where is the outrage from the media that the Royals are royaling-on while Philip is in the hospital? Guess that is only reserved for Harry.

      • (TheOG) Jan90067 says:

        Funnily, Willnot and Cannot Zooming again (from the room in Sandringham that is looking more and more like a tropical forrest with all the additional plants, and Cannot dressing and styling more and more like M) doesn’t seem to be “stepping on toes/cycles”, or garner that much attention for that matter.

  35. Chelsea says:

    “All this talk about him being unhappy in LA doesn’t seem to be true.” Does Jobson hear himself? Is he really out here whining about the fact that the narrative that he and his colleagues have been trying to push for a year about Harry being miserable isn’t true? And does he not get the hypocrisy of him just dropping this narrative in about Harry’s personal life and then complaining about Harry talking about his personal life? So everyone else on the planet can talk about Harry and even create a fake narrative around how his life is going but if he decides to push back and share what is ACTUALLY happening in his life he’s the bad guy?

    Maybe if Jobson and his colleagues didn’t lie so much about what was happening in Harry’s life he wouldn’t feel the need to go on the record to correct it. These idiots really want their lies to be able to stand and they deluded themselves into think that that would happen and now they are having a tantrum over the fact that that won’t happen. Tough sh*t. The Oprah interview is going to lay bare the hell they put Meghan through and they will just have to deal.

    It reminds me of a twitter post I saw the other day that said something along the lines of: “abusers be like: you’re going to tell people i abused you :( “. This is 100% the rota. They really thought there would be no repercussions for their behavior because they were assured the Sussexes would never fight back. It’s the reason the Mail published Meghan’s letter knowing it was illegal to do so and it is the reason they all were so horrific to her in plain view. They never thought their time of reckoning would come. They were wrong.

    • ABritGuest says:

      Full applause for your post Chelsea. The rota thought Meghan was fair game (eg when was the last time you heard of media trying to spy into any other royal’s home & the Times of all people publishing the pictures?) & there would never be any pushback so they went to town with abusive coverage.

      Consequently there are receipts on receipts of stories full of lies/dogwhistles/ misogyny/xenophobia or that show double standards against other royals and even non royal watchers are sharing them. Robert Jobson openly retweets vile racist trolls about Meghan. Wonder if he will be doing a SM clean up pre Oprah?

      So it’s funny to see likes of Camilla Tominey say they did positive stories & covered their charity work (isn’t it your job to cover the royal visits?) and that there are two sides to the story. Why didn’t she publish the other side before? They were all happy to have the tiara & Meghan made Kate cry stories stand until Finding Freedom presented another side and then they pushed alternative versions.

      • Lorelei says:

        @Chelsea: also full applause for your post.

        They wildly underestimated Meghan and messed with the wrong person.

        I obviously hate to see them continue to dump on the Sussexes, but I have to admit it’s a tiny bit satisfying to watch them, in real time, struggling to face the consequences of their own cruel, unnecessary actions.

    • Well said, CHELSEA. The RR was the one thing that the Sussexes were hardline about with being half in/half out. They made it clear they did not want to have to continue work with the RR. THE Firm made it known during the Jan 2020 talks, that that was an absolute deal breaker. That the Sussexes had to continue to engage with the RR if they wanted to stay. Major deal breaker for Harry and Meghan.

    The Queen chose not to wear a mask and not to promote wearing a mask so many times, the vaccines message (which vaccine is out of reach of most who would chose to get it if they had the chance…..that most elites will have before them- which the Queen reminds them off) if off.

  38. redheadedstepchild says:

    I’ve read & agree with most of the comments.

    Harry & Meghan are a cash cow for the RRs & the rags they’re employed by & the Queen will never generate that kind of interest/revenue. H&M are funding the RRs second homes ffs! They’ll never stop but thankfully H&M are out of the lions den.

    In re: Arthur Edward’s saying everything was A OK until Meghan came on the scene? Harry was utterly alone – he was made the scapegoat to take heat off William etc, there was no one to back him up. Alone he couldn’t fight back but w/a partner he could.

    And Arthur Edward’s & the RRs are pissed that Harry won’t eat shit anymore. The audacity & greed of these ppl is astounding.

  39. MissMarierose says:

    The Arthur Edwards quote is really telling, isn’t it? They’re basically confessing that they (the media) feel like jilted lovers.

    i’m giggling like a love sick teenager. This was an amazing interview, showing the Harry that we all love. The tea trolley disaster and Harry’s reaction was priceless. I jumped off my chair when I saw the Spartan course. Harry is making feel Royal are just like us, I’m a Spartan race trifecta finisher and I use a waffle maker every Sunday. I’m jonesing for the Oprah interview, I hope is just as much fun leading to us falling for Meghan even more.

    • Lorelei says:

      I also loved that Harry’s words had to be bleeped out a couple of times 😂

    • Call_me_al says:

      It was an absolutely adorable interview/segment! Harry is so disarming, unassuming, and quietly hilarious.
      I’m not a fan of the Queen, but I think what she said was right on. It was very mild in terms of anti-vaxx criticism. She really does come from that Greatest Generation, who, for all their faults, got the job done above all else.

    Hmm! I wonder if William is doing push ups to compete with Harry’s obstacle course segment. Do you suppose Kate is busy trying to coordinate a photo op wherein she lays her head in William’s lap? Will we see her making breakfast for the fam?
    I doubt if the UK press will compare the results of a sight-seeing bus tour outranking the Royal $$$$$$ Covid-19 Train Tour. They sure like to rage report on whatever Harry and Meghan do as an offense because it shines a light on all the lies they have printed.

    • Amy Too says:

      I’m expecting there to be a waffle maker just “casually” left out on a side table during Kate’s next zoom. And maybe she’ll do her Zoom lying down on the couch with her knees up. She might also have a tea trolley “accidentally” pushed on her by a member of staff off camera so she can react “candidly” to it.

      • Harper says:

        If Harry hasn’t been on a double-decker London bus then neither probably has Will or George or Charlotte or Louis so I’m predicting an Early Years Field Trip with Kate and Will and the kids touring around London on a big red bus. Maybe they’ll bring along some essential workers to “thank” while they are doing it.

    • February-Pisces says:

      Someone just posted a side by side video on twitter of Willie doing an obstacle course walking on a 2 ft high beam with 20 people with their hands out ready to catch him.

      • Lorelei says:

        @February-Pisces oh my GOD thank you for sharing that tweet! I haven’t laughed this hard in ages. That video was great!

  47. Sunday says:

    The more fair coverage the Sussexes receive from American and international outlets, the clearer the real problem becomes. Harry and Meghan are stars, and it is undeniable that their natural charm and warmth would have immediately upstaged the cambridges just by being themselves. If they had been able to capitalize on the ‘fab four’ angle, the spotlight of both couples would have hit the stratosphere, which would have raised the global profiles of all four while benefiting the monarchy as a whole.

    So, whether the cambridges refused to share the spotlight due their perceived superiority (they thought they should be firmly, independently in the spotlight as FFK&QC) or whether their personal animosity towards the Sussexes made this shared approach impossible, it is very clear that the unwillingness on the part of the cambridges to play along with any positive media strategy meant that the only option for Sussex coverage was to spin everything as negatively as possible, because even neutral/fair coverage would allow the public to see H&M for the charismatic, compassionate couple that they are. Any comparison of the two couples would have highlighted the beaming love of one couple to the forced smiles of the other, and so instead of allowing a rising tide to lift both ships, the cambridges decided to sacrifice the Sussexes to save themselves. Wow, did that approach backfire.

  48. Jaded says:

    Meghan coming into Harry’s life was the impetus he needed to push back against a symbiotic but deeply destructive interrelationship between the tabloid sharks and rota that feed on the equally destructive royal family. As a fresh face, an American, a self-made woman with high ideals and loads of compassion, Harry saw his world through her eyes and didn’t like what he saw. He realized that she was bringing out the best in him, even though it didn’t tally with the BRF’s idea of what he should do or be. So for those cantankerous old farts who blame Meghan for taking Harry away, it’s quite the opposite. Harry knew he had to get away from a situation that was making him profoundly unhappy and the people who were causing it – the rota and his very own family. Those vile, jealous curmudgeons can all go pee up a rope.

  49. Cecilia says:

    1 if they don’t want harry to steal the queens thunder then they should stop talking about him. Harry doesn’t control who the medi talks about.

    2 if the monarch can be outshone by the 6th in line then maybe she’s really not as important as you think she is

  50. Valiantly Varnished says:

    Exactly this. If Harry upstaged the Queen it’s because the British media allowed him to. THEY are in control of what gets written and printed. All they are doing is proving that they NEED Harry to sell papers. And they are also proving how utterly irrelevant the royal family has become.

  51. virginfangirl says:

    The message I’ve received strongly from Harry is not really about complete privacy and more about news stories about him based on lies and stories that are designed to be hurtful.

  52. Oh says:

    Harry was their clown, that’s why they loved him

    • bettyrose says:

      Interesting video, though. Harry’s charisma and self assurance is so obvious here. There are of course videos and pictures of young Harry being truly irresponsible, but this one is just Harry being fun and playing to the crowd, who’s loving it.

    • Lesley says:

      After the painted palm plant Harry’s comment to Arthur Edwards was “you know what that’s for”.

      Classic Harry, especially as Arthur couldn’t do anything, he just had to take it.

      This was on a tour of New Zealand where Harry made most of NZ fall in love with him, he was just being himself and so full of energy.

  53. A says:

    I mean, Arthur Edwards is one man who is part of the larger press pool. And he is a photographer. He is not writing articles, he is not setting the tone in the press with respect to public opinion. I’m sure he had a great relationship with Harry, but what Harry said clearly didn’t apply to him, so the fact that he is taking it so enormously personally is just weird to me. Why be so affronted unnecessarily?

    • Sam says:

      It did apply to him. He gets on the shows complain that Meghan changed Harry. In one interview he was begging Harry to come back saying maybe they could have done things better. Can’t remember when this was-maybe after the house purchase or Netflix deal.

      • ennie says:

        I cannot help but compare to what happened to me.
        I have a very demanding, bossy older sister who lives away and who is intelligent and good hearted, but difficult to navigate in daily life.

        When I used to live with my parents, My mom and I used to listen to her and try to accommodate her, and everytime after she left, we didn’t “follow” her instructions, we avoided confrontation for simple, unimportant things. Adter my parents passed away, maybe out of grief, she ramped up this attitude and I got fed up and ignored her demands. She blamed my husband for my “change”.
        I just did not have any more patience left, I could not mourn peacefully by bending after her extreme demands.
        Enough.

      • ABritGuest says:

        Arthur has done lots of articles and tv show appearances on the Sussexes so seems to be treated like a royal expert not just a photographer. Like others in 2019 he basically said Meghan’s profile wouldn’t improve unless she met the rota. He blamed Meghan for the wedding fallout with her dad saying she didn’t help him, the rift with William and for Harry’s attitude to the press. He said Meghan had an agenda to leave from the start and is dragging Harry around LA. So misogynistic.

        At one point last year when he was begging Harry to return he admitted that Meghan had bad press & it was a mistake but ironically said if they had met her then it would have humanised the rota to her lol.

      • A says:

        Well then, that says something doesn’t it. By complaining about it, he is admitting his guilt, that the criticism does apply to him, and he did participate in the toxicity that Harry is referring to. By opening his mouth, he is admitting that he is at fault. That is what I was trying to get at in my comment too. Someone who is blameless and guilt free, who knows they are blameless and guilt free, wouldn’t tell on themselves so quickly. Arthur Edwards tells on himself all the time. That to me implies that he is guilty, even if he won’t admit that to himself. HIs words alone speak volumes.

    • Yoyo says:

      Arthur Edwards was pissed about it and said on Australian TV, that Harry did it deliberately.
      Harry was being mean, but what could Edwards do, besides act as it was a joke played on him.

  54. CrazyHeCallsMe says:

    The BM/RRs have probably started drafting their hate filled articles already in response to the Oprah interview. It will just be “fill in the blanks” and then publish their racist, hateful fan fiction. I hope they get exposed so badly and just become total laughing stocks.

  55. Dr Mrs The Monarch says:

    Today’s headline: “The British media declare that Britons are too stupid to watch two television shows in one evening and recall details of both”

    They really tell on themselves, don’t they?

    • gm says:

      I watched the Corden/ Harry thing online and it was cute. It was only about 17 minutes, not sure how it would interfere with anything else as it was not earth shattering and pretty lightweight. And no offense to royalty but the Queen doing a commercial?/ show? about taking the vaccine is basically a celeb doing it, again ok to watch briefly but is it really going to change someone’s mind? Geez whoever wrote that it interfered way overestimates both Harry and the Queen’s importance and meaning in the world .

  56. Mask4mask says:

    They cannot stop blaming Megan like she is the reason Harry’s relationship with the British press changed instead of their anti black racist misogyny.

    • L4frimaire says:

      Did the press honestly expect him to cozy up to them while they are attacking his wife with their blatant racism and misogyny? What type of person would that make him.

    • Lorelei says:

      @Mask: I guess blaming Meghan is preferable to actually looking inward and considering what their own heinous actions did to bring this about.

  57. Ann says:

    Gifting a waffle iron is the most endearing thing I’ve learned about the Queen since she did that cute spot with Daniel Craig and her corgis at the opening ceremonies of the London Olympics!

    • L4frimaire says:

      I seriously went out and got a waffle iron after that. I know, so silly, but was suddenly craving waffles.

  58. NicDix says:

    Wasn’t that the purpose of leaving The Royal Family? To live his life without having to think of such things? They just can’t quit him and Meghan. I think they are mad because they can’t make H&M disappear off the face of the earth.

  59. Vanessa says:

    These Royal reporters sound unhinged and are clearly taking everything Meghan and Harry do personal. it’s disturbing how they acted and they don’t see their behavior as crazy they have over stepped professionally are acting like a bunch of bitter petty exes who wanted to know what their exes Are doing . It’s clearly their main focus is Megan they direct all their hateful racist abuse on to Meghan they blame her for Harry walking away and taking a stand . They have convinced themselves of the narrative that they been writing for the past three years . Any time reality comes into play they freak out.

  60. Jezebel's Lacefront says:

    These people really believe the world revolves around them. The Corden interview occurred in the U.S., a totally different country. No one in the U.S. has to ask or consider the Queen for announcing interviews. The audacity to believe we must consider a chick that ultimately means nothing to us. Also, blame the British media for covering his interview over the Queen’s late discussion about the vaccine.

    Please!

  61. L4frimaire says:

    This is not a legitimate criticism. Every time H & M do something has nothing to do with overshadowing the rest of the royals. This was the same complaint that they had when they were there as senior working royals and coordinating with the rest of them. This is nothing new but the press over there reacts each and every time like it’s a personal affront that the Sussexes aren’t in hiding and are visible and outspoken about what they do and the causes and projects they care about. You can’t say that that you should go about your duties quietly and not bring attention to your work, then complain about being overshadowed. People responded to Harry’s appearance because it was fun, honest, and positive.

  62. Lissdogmom02 says:

    So I watched the Diana interview-the show, about said interview of Diana, on Brit box, not to be to who’s on 1st there. I remember Diana’s wedding and then when she was divorced. I was younger and didn’t pay a lot of it any mind. Fast forward to now, I adore Meghan & have been intrigued by the aging monarchy but never interested enough to really pay attention until, this site & Meghan. That being said, son of a biscuit they are still smearing Diana, I was astounded, acting as though her opinions are invalid in the interview. 👀 Even in death they disrespect her.
    So I came away realizing it’s really good they left, they will never like Meghan, it’s atrocious but true.
    Also William reminds me of a young Charles.
    I also realized why I’d never been that found on William & Kate as a couple they are very theatrically performative, but what Meghan and Harry have can’t be faked which is why people are drawn to them.
    Harry and Meghan are wise to stay clear of the family they are truly dysfunctional and ridiculous, I would stay an ocean & continent away from them too.

    • Nyro says:

      I watched the first 60 seconds of that documentary and immediately turned it off because I knew it was going to be all about invalidating Diana. I used to watch royal documentaries every once in a while over the years and never thought anything of it. Now if I go back and watch those same docs, I can totally see the bias and the gaslighting. It’s all propaganda, lies and smears and more lies to protect the BRF and keep their ridiculous class system from crumbling. And those documentaries always paint Diana was crazy and disturbed at worse, stupid or manipulated at best. There’s even one called “Seven Days”, about the week following Diana’s death, that ultimately paints the Queen as this savior who made all the right decisions in the end. It’s madness and a total rewrite of history! It’s maddening. Someone really needs to expose the British establishment. From the BRF to nearly all of the media, the stranglehold they have on that country is simply unbelievable.

  63. gm says:

    Seriously the royal family has dibs on the news??? Also no offense to the Q, or H & M either, or politicians I am not taking your advice about the pandemic, even with scientists/ medical community I am skeptical and do my own thinking. But maybe she has some effect?
    To me it is kind of like celebs or the President telling me stuff, sure I’ll hear them out but has no effect on my thinking or decision making much less voting.

  64. mlouise says:

    the privacy point should be understood for their fear that H&M will overshadow them (BRF) and make them look dated if not inept – and they wish they would be in hiding forever not to have to deal with them and to keep saying they left cause they did not want to bear the duty or ‘royal working’.

  65. Bibi says:

    How about you shut up about Harry having his moment on the show and start covering the Queen’s speech on the jab, so she’ll have the coverage you think she needs instead of having a problem with what people do outside your country. The UK isnt the center of the world and and the queen isnt either. Get back to your domestic affairs instead of interfering with the life of people who want nothing to do with the Royals anymore, in AMERICA
