British socialite Sabine Getty thinks Duchess Meghan needs to ‘sit down’

CELEBRITIES : Valentino Fashion show Paris - 01/22/2020

I came into this story not knowing who Sabine Getty and Lady Alice Manners were or are. I’m still not entirely sure, but I did see this Vanity Fair story about how the “Manners sisters” are apparently famous in the UK for being aristocrats and a–holes, so there you go. Sabine Getty is married to Joseph Getty, of the infamous Getty clan, and she’s also a contributing editor to Tatler. You get the idea: two “socialites” with allegedly good “breeding” who are self-styled gatekeepers to “good society.” Well, they apparently hate the Duchess of Sussex. They think Meghan should “sit down.”

There was a time when pals of Royalty would never wish to fall out with their famous friends for fear of being excluded from the inner sanctum. But after Prince Harry exiled himself, socialite friends don’t feel the need to hide their private views any more.

Take Lady Alice Manners and Sabine Getty– two Royal pals who weighed in on the treatment of the Queen by Harry and Meghan by telling Meghan: ‘Girl. Take a seat.’ That’s American slang for stand down, shut up and – in this instance – leave our Queenie alone!

It was Sabine, who attended Princess Eugenie’s wedding, who got the ball rolling. She shared Meghan and Harry’s churlish statement – ‘We can all live a life of service. Service is universal’ – issued after Buckingham Palace announced the couple had been stripped of their Royal patronages.

Sabine was gobsmacked by Meghan’s riposte and felt defensive of the Monarch. ‘Am I actually reading this?!’ she rebuked. ‘Saying this to the Queen who is 94 years old and has been in public service her entire life?’ Sabine also seemed to blame Meghan as the brains behind the statement, adding: ‘Girl. Take a seat.’

Then Alice put Sabine’s post on her own Instagram page along with an emoji of two raised hands in the ‘preach’ position. Ouch!

[From The Daily Mail]

I guess the point is that Sabine and Alice are solely blaming Meghan for the Sussexit – little surprise – and that they think she should “sit down,” which is their aristo-code for “Meghan is a gauche American who is not welcome in our lily white aristo club.” To which I say… okay. Meghan and Harry said sayonara to this bullsh-t, all of it. Besides, I’m not entirely convinced that these a–holes even know Harry and Meghan.

    White snobby lady say what?

    • UptownGirl says:

      Guess what ladies, we don’t give a f#ck about what you think.
      So, STFU and move on, no one cares about what either of you think.
      BTW, someone’s roots are showing….

      • Gruey says:

        Wow stupid white bitch gatekeepers with massive unearned privilege commanding the hard working Biracial woman to shutup—oh definitely not going to backfire.

        I really would be surprised if more Commonwealth countries defect by the end of the week.

      • minx says:

        They are, um, unfortunate looking.

      • AlpineWitch says:

        To be honest, the more socialites speak the more Meghan is supported.

        Those people are so detached from the common folk that they might as well live on Mars… never heard of them…

        Minx, apparently they are also unfortunate racist-blessed 🤣

    • Kalana says:

      These are the kind of horse-faced cuties they wanted Harry to marry.

      Two social x-rays without an original thought between them. Imagine the potential though for more Top CEO type soundbites.

      • whatWHAT? says:

        SOCIAL X-RAYS! I LOVE that you made this reference as I think Bonfire of the Vanities is a GREAT novel. And it suits these two perfectly. horrible fashion sense on both, too.

        and yes, my take on this is they’re jealous of Markle…they think he should have married “someone like them”.

        it always makes me laugh when Brits are offended that we (Americans) don’t hold the Queen in the same regard they do. it’s like “b*tch we said ‘bye Felicia’ to your country 250 years ago, why would we care what the hell Petty Betty thinks?”

      • Kate says:

        Kalana- Absolutely right!

      • Killfanora says:

        Horse-faced…..yep, inbreeding will out!

      • Christina says:

        Loving the Tom Wolfe reference. Bonfire the the Vanities is so apropos to this bulls—t. X-rays indeed.

      • Water Bearer. 💧 says:

        This made me laugh out loud and heartily. You are right of course. Most people, including me, expected he would marry an unmarried, thin white blonde born into wealth and privilege. So when he chose a smart, capable and accomplished mixed race successful American actress with opinions it threw people off. Made the racists mad. They saw someone who looked like them walking down the aile with Harry but dear reader it didn’t turn out like that.

      • Dreamchild says:

        “Horse faced cuties”!!!! Thanks soo much for that! 😂😂😂😂😂😂

      • VS says:

        @Kalana —- love love love love love your post! indeed, that’s exactly what they wanted H to marry! the guy got very lucky

      • Mila says:

        Definately oml, it’s nice to see they are not short on Kate equine types! The horsey genealogy in the aristos seems to be RAMPANT! I can only make sense of it as some sort of hereditary incest breeding malformation that they just can’t get stick of! Never seen anything like it in my life until I started watching this lot!

      • It’sJustBlanche says:

        I was just thinking that they have the kind of faces that plastic surgery can’t help, kind of like Tori Spelling.

    • BayTampaBay says:

      Lady Alice Manners is the daughter of The Duke of Rutland.

      • MaryContrary says:

        The Manners sisters who’s parents reside together but announced they would “take new partners”? The sisters who’s nicknames are “The Bad Manners Sisters” for all of their loud, obnoxious partying and rude ways? That they would think that their family’s tackiness is somehow “better” than Meghan because the family got their peerage in the 14th century-sorry, American here-don’t care.

      • Maida says:

        “Lady Alice Manners” sounds like a snobby character in a Dickens novel.

      • NotSoSocialButterfly says:

        Lady Alice Ill Manners, to be correct.

      • one of the Marys says:

        I thought ‘Lady Manners’ was Kaiser having a laugh

      • AlpineWitch says:

        Who’s the Duke of Rutland anyway….

      • Feeshalori says:

        They need to take a seat, several of them, in fact.

      • Camila CB says:

        According to his Wiki page, “The Duke is a high-profile supporter of the UK Independence Party (UKIP) and has hosted fundraising events at Belvoir Castle”

        And “the Duke came under scrutiny for advertising positions for actors to perform unpaid at Belvoir Castle.”

        It’s so obvious…

    • NotSoSocialButterfly says:

      They say, “We are racist, too, give us attention, as well!!”

      • Amy Too says:

        These royals and royal adjacents sure seem to like to refer to Meghan as “girl,” which is the feminized racist version of calling a black man “boy.” We had William telling Harry he shouldn’t marry “that girl,” and now we have these two women calling her “girl” again. Just take out a billboard that says “we’re all really racist!” It would be easier than all the micro aggressions and get your point across quicker.

    • coolspray says:

      lol, I have not seen dead fish eyes like these two have in a long time!

    • MerryGirl says:

      Most likely bitter Harry stans who were deeply hurt he didn’t choose one of them or their pale and stale friends. Next.

  2. Bettyrose says:

    But the Gettys are American. Total California socialites. What’s up with this lady? I’ll need to Google.

    • Amy Bee says:

      There’s a British side of the family. There’s one who renounced US citizenship and was knighted by the Queen , I think it was the late John Paul Getty III he was able to be accepted by the British aristocracy and may have even married an aristo.

      • Sofia says:

        Wrong Getty. Getty III was the one who was kidnapped. His father was the one with the knighthood.

      • Amy Bee says:

        Close enough

      • Bettyrose says:

        Thanks for the info Amy Bee. Very Interesting! Are they still close with the American side or did they leave it all behind? My thinking is the Gettys are exactly the kind of philanthropists Meghan is likely to partner with so lady bad manners here should prepare herself for that.

      • BayTampaBay says:

        @Bettyrose – Pia Miller Getty, one of the American Miller sisters, married and divorced Christopher Ronald Getty, son of Jean Ronald Getty and grandson of Jean Paul Getty. I would guess that Pia Getty is Meghan’s type of philanthropists.

  3. Becks1 says:

    1) two white aristos think the black woman should sit down and shut up?? I’m shocked, SHOCKED I tell you!!!!

    2) Harry and Meghan dont give two shits what these two women think they should do.

    • Mac says:

      It’s amazing how many people are trying to glom onto the attention the Oprah interview it getting.

    • endee says:

      I don’t disagree with anyones sentiments, but Sabine is not just “white,” she is actually an Arab woman. I don’t think this makes her statements any less silly, but not every woman who disagrees with M+H’s lifestyle has to be white and racist. Sabine had to fight very hard to be taken seriously in the right circles being a Lebanese women, rich or not. Just like Meghan.

      • ennie says:

        Still, being “non Anglo” doesn’t mean they are not racist. I and not well versed in the Arab world, but I know that they (as in many countries) can be very classist, colorist and also racist. Especially in places like SA which is a rich country.
        To many people suffering this trying to fit in, a way to fit in is becoming like the worst of any of them, even more racist, colorist and classist towards any new people who become a threat.
        Jus look at, for example, Hispanics who vote for Trump. Many of them despise any new immigration laws, they are afraid of them taking their jobs or something.

      • Courtney B says:

        That’s what I saw. Her father is Lebanese and her mother was born in Egypt though I don’t think she’s Egyptian or at least fully so.

      • josephine says:

        If Sabine wants to be taken seriously, maybe she could do something worth being recognized for. And sorry, but f— “the right circles.” People fighting to be “in the right circles” are part of the problem. Use your wealth, recognition, status and/or education to do the right thing or sit down and at least not make it worse.

      • Yup, Me says:

        But she’s definitely leaning into her white adjacency with that fried blonde hair choice.

        Also, anti-Black racism is a VERY big thing in many parts of the Arab world and cultures.

        The verdict – she may not be white (to her chagrin) and she still needs to shut the ENTIRE f*ck up.

      • Elizabeth says:

        First of all, she is not “just like Meghan.” Second, being Lebanese doesn’t mean you’re automatically not racist because here we have Sabine (who is NOT Black) co-opting American Black slang to demean a Black woman. People of color can suffer from internalized racism as well, and women from internalized sexism. I think that’s what we’re seeing here. Sabine is doing the dirty work for the white supremacist patriarchy.

      • Nana says:

        @Endee, it’s true, internalised racism can be a really destructive force. And unfortunately comments from privileged people like Sabine only allow white supremists to feel even more justified in their prejudices.

      • A says:

        @Endee, so? If you spend your whole life making up for the trauma that you encountered by spewing its toxicity onto other people, then the problem is you, and you don’t deserve an ounce of sympathy. Meghan has dealt with the same things, and come out of it as a kind, empathetic human being, who doesn’t treat others the way she has been treated. What’s Sabine Getty’s excuse?

  4. Lorelei says:

    Their faces are exactly what I would expect bland, horsey-faced aristos to look like, lol.

    I don’t generally make fun of physical characteristics that people had nothing to do with and can’t control, but I’ll make an exception with these two since they’re apparently fine with unsolicited opinions being thrown around.

    • Myra says:

      I just posted this below, then saw your comment

    • Kalana says:

      Ha! I just saw your comment @Lorelai!

      Honestly, these women look like they neigh.

    • Chicken Tetrazzini! says:

      Those nose jobs though. definitely hindering and not helping

    • Megan2 says:

      The one on the left is really glaringly unsuited to a life with blonde hair. Does she have a mirror? I mean, their personalities are the real losers here but my god… the bottled blonde is really off-putting on her.

    • whatWHAT? says:

      decades of in-breeding. there are only so many aristos over there to breed with and they all start to look the same.

    • Sushiroll says:

      The blonde one looks like a genetic catastrophe coated in greasy makeup. They also both look like they smell of perfume and sardines. They should both sit down on a high pressure bidet.

    • WannabeSith says:

      I came here to say just this thing.

    • GGRosebud says:

      Did they dress in the dark? They should take several seats for those fashion crimes.

  5. nicegirl says:

    Like, fuck you very much, Sabine???

  6. Myra says:

    If Disney ever wanted to recast the role of Cinderella’s stepsisters, they would be perfect. Everything about them, from head to toe, is exactly how I imagine rude rich people look like.

  7. Case says:

    “…who weighed in on the treatment of the Queen by Harry and Meghan.” Harry and Meghan haven’t done a damn thing to the Queen. Maybe these two should take a seat instead.

    • Amy Too says:

      This whole rigamarole about how no one is allowed to cross the Queen, or even speak after she has spoken being harped on is so funny when they just made a huge deal about “we’re you silent or silenced?” They went on and on about how the Queen isn’t at all like a mob boss and she doesn’t silence anyone, blah blah blah, and yet at the same time we’re getting these “No one criticizes the Queen! No one is allowed to challenge the Queen! No one can even say anything in defense of themselves that is in any way tangentially critical of the Queen!” That sounds very mob boss to me. “Of course we didn’t silence her!” But also “How dare you speak! Sit down and shut up!”

  8. Wiglet Watcher says:

    What’s wrong with her face? Oh, there’s desperate bitch smeared all over it…

    Really, the Sussex star power is so huge everyone is trying to insert themselves into this somehow.

  9. Peanut says:

    These two have a lot of misplaced confidence.

  10. Faye says:

    I’m sure Meghan is really heart broke about their views.

    • whatWHAT? says:

      yup, married the cute prince (who, BTW, seems to ADORE her), got to ditch the monarchy and all the ridic protocol that comes with it, living her best life in sunny southern CA with an adorable baby and another on the way, and making BANK. I’m sure she’s crying into her pillow every night. hahahahaha!

      ps I know you were being sarcastic, too, if you couldn’t tell. :)

  11. Watson says:

    Whew! The inbreeding!

  12. Sofia says:

    She’s an editor for Tatler or something like that. So she’s as aristo as you can get in terms of not having titles I guess…

    These people openly dislike and mock Kate so I’m not surprised that they openly dislike (and mock) Meghan

    Edit: Also it’s a bit rich for a Manners sister to tell people to behave.

  13. Izzy says:

    White bigoty snobs say what now?

  14. L84Tea says:

    Sabine Getty looks like a Maya Rudolph SNL skit waiting to happen.

  15. ElleE says:

    The tall brunette is amazingly kitted out, Sloane Ranger style, in the first pic. Scroll down to the second pic and there is the basic b!t*h look, that just totally negates the first impression. Did Kaiser do this on purpose??

  16. What what says:

    These aristos will never get over the fact that Meghan didn’t try to kiss there ass like Kate did and still does. They expected Meghan to grovel but she never paid them any attention. They hated the fact that Harry and Meghan kept to themselves at aristo dinners.

  17. Lauren says:

    Good thing that their opinions are not important. They should take several seats.

  18. Angie says:

    And I think she needs to grow a chin. So.

  19. Margot says:

    All these a-holes coming out of the woodwork are just proving that Harry and Meghan were right to get the F out of dodge.

  20. HK9 says:

    I tore apart my apartment, looking for who the f-k asked her. I do believe the answer to that is no-damn-body.

  21. Chaine says:

    They need to go back and sit down themselves in whatever country club dining room is calling their names and eat their grilled salmon on spring mix lunch plates.

    • Lady D says:

      Mmmm, salmon. I was beyond fortunate enough to spend nearly 30 years next to a massive river, teeming with salmon and sturgeon.

  22. Roo says:

    The only thing I will say about their physical appearance: at least they’ll marry well. 😉

  23. girl_ninja says:

    Why do they all look like this? Whew.

  24. Cecilia says:

    Meghan is above your station babes. If somebody needs to simmer down it would be you

  25. Catwoman says:

    Who?

  26. Linda says:

    They could play the ugly stepsisters to Meghan’s Cinderella. Yes, I stooped that low commenting on their looks. No, I don’t care.

  27. cherriepie84 says:

    Kaiser and fellow CBers may I be allowed to paraphrase a comment from the SussexSquad YouTube? It perfectly sums up all the bitter ‘ristos being in their feelingsand it goes ahem: “You can all stay upset or just accept the fact that Meghan is riding your Prince and has a child to show for it and one on the way…” Credit to the individual who made the original comment on YT.

  28. TIffany says:

    This is a whole lot of talk from two women who do not get the prince. Any of them,

  29. CindyP says:

    Those outfits are so classy

  30. Nyro says:

    First off, do British people ever question how freakin’ odd ait is that your Head of State is seen as, like, totally above reproach. Is it not seen as odd that this supposed public servant, who’s taxpayer funded, is spoken of and protected as if she’s God herself? She’s not to be talked back to? WTF?!! The Head of State?!! It’s soooo wrong and corrupt and weird as hell to me as an American.

    Secondly, I can’t stand a handmaiden. If you’re a scared woman, then say so and keep the brave women’s name out of your cowardly mouth. If you’re down with the establishment and happy for the crumbs you get in relation to the man who either sired or married you, then shut up and stop smearing the lionesses who want more and aren’t afraid to fight.

    A lot of these Meghan haters are just a bunch of scared and unambitious women who are both fearful and envious of her boldness and her drive to live her life on her terms and at it’s best. That’s something she’s always done and not even marrying into the royal family was going to change that. And now she’s gotten even bigger and better and they just can’t get over it. Meanwhile, they continue to bow and scrape before both Queenie and the patriarchy she represents.

    • Alarmjaguar says:

      Well said!

    • Annalise says:

      Wow!!! AMAZINGLY well said!! I couldn’t agree more with your comment about how the Queen is omnipotent, never to be questioned, no matter who you are she IS better than you………..it’s really the most backwards power structure I’ve ever seen. And can I say how much I HATE that corn-yellow shade of blond??? Either use some toner or go back to your natural shade of brunette for God’s sake……..

    • Lemons says:

      👏👏👏👏

    • josephine says:

      The only thing I will ever remember that queen for is enabling and hiding that creepy, gross, sick son of hers.

      • Nyro says:

        The only time she seems to be an active queen instead of a passive one, is when she’s doing something low-down, dirty, and shady. When it’s time to protect that degenerate third child of hers, or humiliate her veteran grandson, or make underhanded deals with her Tory buddies to protect her wealth and status, she’s all in, wheeling and dealing. When it’s time to call for an end to the relentless bigoted press abuse of her biracial granddaughter-in-law, then it’s all “never complain,never explain” and excuses about how that’s not under her jurisdiction and press freedom and whatnot, etc. SMH. She’s horrible. A terrible mother, a terrible monarch. And the fawning over her basic ass just makes it worse. She is, without question, easily the most uninteresting super-elderly person in the public sphere. She ain’t half the queen Cicely Tyson was.

  31. Comfortably Numb says:

    Grey Gardens is calling…

  32. aquarius64 says:

    These trust fund brats are mad that a person that looks like she belongs in the servants’ quarters has more money in the bank than they do…and it’s EARNED.

  33. Lemons says:

    If your title in tabloid is “socialite,” you should sit down. You clearly haven’t done anything to even graduate to the level of philanthropist to be speaking on “service.”

  34. Coo Coo Catchoo says:

    Yeesh – they’re hurting my eyes.
    The taller one has a mouse face.

  35. MsIam says:

    They give off a definite Emily Giffen vibe for sure.

  36. Amy Bee says:

    This is not surprising, they’re British aristos. These people don’t even accept the future Queen Consort, how are they going to accept black American Meghan Markle. Harry probably lost a lot of aristo friends because their attitude towards Meghan but he’s probably better off without them.

  37. Jay says:

    Girl, she did sit down…with Oprah. You can watch it on Sunday with the rest of us!

  38. Coco says:

    That yellow dress! My eyes! My eyes!

  39. Nev says:

    Awwwwww they be mad they won’t be Duchesses. Oh well. Stay mad.

  40. Cee says:

    LOL someone is looking into relieving Rose Hanbury from her duties!!!

  41. Valerie says:

    I’m so glad that I don’t know who this person is.

  42. mimi says:

    She’s best friends with Eugenie and Beatrice – also a close friend of Emilia wickstead (She’s featured in the latest ad campaign for the brand). She wore EW to Eugenie and Jack’s wedding – I remember because when I went on her Instagram to get a better look at her pink ensemble and the caption said how much of a honour it was attend the most elegant and old school wedding. I remember thinking at time it read like a shady statement towards Harry and Meghan’s wedding, i guess I was right….

    • Kalana says:

      I think Eugenie plays both sides.

      And her “work” with survivors of trafficking was not about a guilty conscience. It was manipulative and shameless.

    • BayTampaBay says:

      @mimi – Are you referring to Sabine Getty or Lady Alice Manners?

  43. Babz says:

    Wow…the mean girl vibe is strong with these two. I agree with everyone who says this is the type they wanted Harry to marry. Thanks be to God he fell for a beautiful, strong, interesting, intelligent, woman with whom he is finding true happiness. These two…🙄

  44. fifee says:

    Why is it that as a British person I have never heard of half of these aristo arses? On reflection I dont really want to hear about them, theyre all worthless POS.

  45. Veronica S. says:

    She paid a lot of money to have her nose look that bad, yeah? And hoo boy, that hair.

  46. Muggs says:

    I can’t find the appropriate words to say how much I appreciate your choice of photos for these 2 clowns!

  47. Jessica says:

    I don’t know who they are either but they should keep Meghan’s name out of their nasty snobbish racist mouths and keep it moving. Nobody cares what you horsey, insular inbreds think!

  48. nutella toast says:

    Pretty much everything you need to know about Sabine Getty (the pictures are almost TOO on the nose including powdered wig cosplay, a sun goddess wedding dress (yes, really), and African drummers with white people in a conga line behind them on the way to a castle meal in Rome?) is in the link below…I couldn’t be that tacky if I tried really, really hard…and she’s trying really, really hard.

    https://www.vogue.com/article/sabine-ghanem-joseph-getty-wedding-rome-italy

    • BayTampaBay says:

      The only nice thing I can say, after viewing the link, is that the little kids in the bridal party are cute.

    • Steph says:

      That is the tackiest thing I’ve ever seen.

    • MA says:

      I remember seeing her wedding and dress a while back and I couldn’t believe this person thought she had taste. Tacky tacky tacky….

    • damejudi says:

      Whoever she’s paying $$$$$ for that hair color HATES her.

    • Veronica S. says:

      That could be a really fun idea for a wedding in the right person’s hands, but…so tacky here lol. You’d think with that kind of money they could get a proper seamstress at the least. I also love that she’s all dolled up, and her partner has ratty sneakers on under that suit. Like, couldn’t even go for a pair of basic dress shoes?? Moneyed trash, y’all.

  49. February-Pisces says:

    Who? And who?? The trash press is really scraping the bottom of the aristo barrel here with these two Karen’s.

  50. Annalise says:

    Good God the only reason the Queen has been in public “service” her whole adult life is because she was given God knows how many castles, most of the gems on the freaking planet, an absolutely illogical amount of power & influence, not to mention a cool 400 million a year, among many, many other perks. It KILLS me when people talk about the Queen’s “life of service” as if she were an unpaid volunteer.

  51. Steph says:

    The aristo inbreeding is showing in these two.

    • BayTampaBay says:

      Sabine Getty, whose father is a Lebanese financier and whose mother, Karine Ratl, is an Egyptian interior decorator, is not a real British Aristocrat. She just married one so she could play one in Tatler Magazine.

      Lady Alice Manners is the real deal.

      • Courtney B says:

        And no one to throw stones given her family’s history. Though her ancestors were at least interesting. Alice and her sisters are called The Bad Manners or No Manners sisters.

      • BayTampaBay says:

        @CourtneyB – I should not be so nasty about people whom I do not know anything about like Sabine Getty. I just got caught up on an enjoyable roll making fun of “Tatler Chicks”, British titled aristocrats, and rich landed gentry with multi-hyphenated surnames.

        Footnote: I know plenty about Lady Alice Manners and her sisters.

  52. K says:

    Oh my. What happened to counting close cousins? Watch those chromosomes, please. Also telling a black woman to sit down!? Jesus.

  53. Celeste says:

    Is that what inbreeding looks like?

  54. ennie says:

    No wonder Harry looked elsewhere for his bride.
    (I’m not talking just about appearance).

  55. Courtney B says:

    Look up Ladies Violet and Diana Manners (daughters of the 8th Duke of Rutland). They were two of the most interesting, socialites of their day. They ran with the wild group The Coterie. Diana was the mother of julius Norwich and grandmother of Allegra Huston. Their sister Marjorie was an art historian and biographer. Their niece was Ursula d’Abo who in addition to being a great beauty of her time was well known for a long term affair with none other than J Paul Getty. Alice herself is the great granddaughter of the INFAMOUS Margaret, Duchess of argyll. Tons of scandal there. Including with prince Philip. All are way more interesting than their watered down and unaccomplished descendants and relatives.

    Alice’s father, the current Duke is a huge supporter of UKIP. Blech.

    Judging their faces, they haven’t had a decent bowel movement in a decade. Not only should they swallow their own sit-down advice, they should do it after exiting the building.

  57. one of the Marys says:

    I wish all these people and the British media would just stop. talking. about. Meghan. She’s gone!!!
    There’s no need to ever mention her again (I know, $ for clicks). If it was so bad then shun her, ignore her, stop rehashing everything!

  58. Valiantly Varnished says:

    think Miss Whoever The Hell She Is needs to get a better colorist and stylist, but okay.

  59. Keri, says:

    To quote Colleen McCollough (The Thorn Birds),

    “Miss Mackail (cough Sabine Getty cough) was stunning of body (Not really, but work with me here), but in the face very like a horse eating an apple through a wire-netting fence.”

    I detect some self hatred here. If she’s half Lebanese and really struggled to fit in and be accepted, she should know first hand what Megan went through. She reminds me of Carole Middleton, totally ashamed of where she comes from but is merciless to those she deems inferior because she’s royal adjacent through her daughters marriage. She resents the hell out of Meghan for not doing what she obviously did – Kowtow and kiss royal, aristocratic, moneyed ass to be accepted. She should just take her own advise and STFU and STFD.

    White women using Black slang to slag on a Black woman. Sheesh.

  61. Pandora says:

    Here come Anastasia and Drizella to set things straight…

  62. Jezebel's Lacefront says:

    Who is this moppet? Go sit down.

  63. MissF says:

    Sid from Ice Age says whaaaaaa?

  64. Gk says:

    The queen has been in service but she’s not mother Teresa , she’s lived an opulent life with the honest food, in palaces, a yacht, her own train, racehorses. It’s a trade off I’d be willing to make and I would not trade for Ghandi/ mother Teresa’s lives of abstinence.

  65. Shoshone says:

    The photos of these two women are tragic. I am certain that they believe that they are the pinnacle of beauty, grace and fashion but they would be sadly mistaken. I won’t body shame because that is so wrong, but I can snark about their fashion and a couple of the outfits (which I am sure are hella expensive) remind me of mid-west lot lizards.

  66. Truthiness says:

    God bless every comment here, you guys are epic

  67. MA says:

    By order of their arcane hierarchy, the Gettys need to sit down and know their place. How dare she speak against HRH the Duchess of Sussex, a princess of the United Kingdom?

  68. Mina_Esq says:

    Those are really unflattering photos of Sabine lol You guys, she has good angles too. Her wedding gown and matching cape are something to behold. But back to the topic, this is very much just racist, colonialist, classist garbage. I’m not sure why she feels that she must insert herself into this conversation.

  69. Jezebeelzebub says:

    Why are they?

  70. Freddy says:

    Oh nice, privileged White women telling a Black woman to sit down…#Soundsaboutwhite….

  71. Borrega says:

    What that sound affect after “Frau Blucher”?

  72. Deb says:

    And if this was, say a bus, where exactly would the snob sisters allow Megan to take a seat?

    • MerlinsMom1018 says:

      @Deb
      Ohhhhhh I think we all know where they would want Meghan to sit. Assuming, of course, they even ALLOWED her on said bus.

  73. diamond rottweiler says:

    They look like the two most inbred golden retrievers from the litter the puppy mill couldn’t sell.

  74. NYStateofMind says:

    If they had any class they would not only not get involved but not post it on social media. They must be bored.

  75. MerlinsMom1018 says:

    Can we just take a minute and check out their fashion… choices?? Or lack thereof?

  76. Midge says:

    Sabine looks like osteoporosis w/ a bad single process.

  77. Eulalia says:

    THIS bad dye job is telling Meghan to sit down? While she’s living her best life in her mansion in sunny California with her hot husband (who has still all his hair) and 1.5 kids, while straw hair over here is looking like an Aldi substitute of Annie Lennox (if Annie Lennox became a crackhead). Ok hun.

  78. Maple 🍁 says:

    They look like the human version of the stepsisters in the animated version of Cinderella

  79. Lesley says:

    Sabine only gets a mention because she married money, serious money not the sort of money that the moderately wealthy James Matthew has but way way way more. This is why she can buy couture, and probably why she got a gig writing a column for Tatler.

    As for the reason for making these comments? DM is run by a former editor of Tatler. So you can see the chain, can’t you?

  80. Nic919 says:

    This has been the wittiest thread with so many great nominees for comment of the week.

  81. Well Wisher says:

    Being facetious – Why are they concerned about Meghan standing? Should’nt them, being aristocrats project an air of sophistication? They seem so provincial and (heaven forbid) middle class.

  82. Likeyoucare says:

    My mom teach me not to mock anyone physical appearance. But holly shit these women have an unfortunate face. Bless their heart.

    • A says:

      This is what centuries and generations of inbreeding will net you–a complete and utter absence of a chin.

  83. Darcy P says:

    From both their statements and outfits pictured, it just goes to show that it doesn’t matter how much money and “breeding” you have- you can still be tacky and trashy!

  84. A says:

    Worth pointing out here some political connections–the Manners’ girls’ father is the Duke of Rutland, David Manners, who has stood for election in the House of Lords as a political candidate for fucking UKIP. I distinctly remember checking one of his daughters’ IG at some point after the vote went for leave, and she had posted some trite Winston Churchill quote that I understood as an explicit vote of support for Brexit.

    Given all that Brexit is, and all that Brexit and the UKIP stands for, the fact that Alice Manners is podcasting and keeping company with people who say shit like this is not surprising. Make no mistake about it, they are racist and disgusting as they come.
