Lady Victoria Hervey on the Sussexes: ‘I just don’t see it lasting, they moved too fast’

2020 - USA - Hollywood for the Global Ocean Gala in Los Angeles

I don’t know much about Lady Victoria Hervey other than she’s on the periphery of a few gossip stories over the years, like Mel B’s split from her gross husband, and she used to be friends with Lindsay Lohan (back in the crack heist days). She also used to date Prince Andrew, and had partied with him and Jeffrey Epstein back in the day. So, an image is forming. From time to time, she chimes in on various gossip stories because all of these British D-listers are thirsty and desperate to name-check more famous people. This week, she’s talking about the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.

Lady Victoria Hervey has claimed Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s courtship was ‘way too short’ and she ‘doesn’t see their marriage lasting’. The British socialite, 44, who is a former love interest of Prince Andrew and now lives in Los Angeles, said she predicted the Duchess of Sussex, 39, would end up ‘wanting to be in America’.

Speaking to Closer magazine, Lady Victoria – the daughter of the 6th Marquess of Bristol – said: ‘I think Harry and Meghan’s courtship was way too short. I just don’t see it lasting. I remember just before their wedding, I thought, “They’ll get married, have a few kids… And she will end up wanting to be in America”.’

Lady Victoria, who was a close friend of Prince Charles’ late goddaughter Tara Palmer-Tomkinson, added that she doesn’t believe the Sussexes spent enough time together in England.

‘They were always travelling somewhere. They moved too fast,’ she said. ‘That’s why Kate Middleton and Prince William’s relationship is so successful – they were together for such a long time before getting married.’

She also branded Harry and Meghan’s Oprah interview ‘distasteful’ given it was broadcast while the late Prince Philip, who died in April aged 99, was in hospital.

‘The way it was done, with Prince Philip in the hospital, literally about to die. I thought it was pretty unreal,’ she claimed.

While she claimed Harry has become the ‘black sheep’ of the Royal Family now, she said it’s her belief the Firm would welcome him back should he decide to return to the UK.

[From The Daily Mail]

A lot of British people believed that Meghan would get tired of living in the UK. That’s why they started gleefully badgering her and bullying her six months into her marriage, trying to force her to leave. The term “Megxit” wasn’t coined by people who thought Meghan would leave the UK. It was coined by people trying to bully her out of the country, to force the exit. And none of them thought Harry would leave with her. That was what no one was expecting. As for this idea that Meghan and Harry moved too quickly… they got engaged about 17 months after their first date. That’s not “too fast” outside of royal circles. Royals and aristocrats are the people who marry the cousins they’ve known since childhood. That’s what Harry was up against. “Why don’t you marry your second cousin, someone you’ve known since your were three, Haz??”

    As opposed to baldy and waity, who took forever to get hitched? They seem real happy

    • pottymouth pup says:

      well nothing predicts a stable, loving marriage as well as a long-term on-again, off-again relationship /sarc

    • Elizabeth Regina says:

      I remember this person from back in the day. She tried and failed to bag a prince and is transferring her upset and aggression on Meghan. She is a stick insect with no discernible talent and bolt ons. All the more reason she is upset with Meghan.

      • Me says:

        Indeed, poor old bone-y Hervey—she never managed to get a rich man to the altar, not even a non-English fellow looking for a way into English society, and now she’s 44 and fetched up in LA instead of embarrassingly left on the shelf in London, a quintessential nobody.

      • Loolaa says:

        I think this woman is a horrible person, but let’s not body shame. There’s no need for that.

      • Me says:

        Bone-y was her nickname back in the 90s and it was malicious—you’re right that bit of mean girling is wrong and I stand corrected

    • whatWHAT? says:

      and allegedly Waity was like, his third choice after a couple of women turned his proposal down.

      and they always look so happy. /s

      yeah, that’s a really successful marriage. I guess by royal standards, it is…married an “appropriate” person, had the heir and the spare, she “knows her place” and she looks good in buttons. win.

      • Sarah11 says:

        @ WhatWHAT? Allegedly Harry first asked Chelsea Davy who turned him down as she didn’t want the restrictions of a royal life. I think Charles may have been turned down a few times too for the same reason. Diana’s sister, Lady Sarah Spencer, was dating Charles but was dropped after she stated to a friend that she wouldn’t marry him even if he asked her to. And does it really matter who came before? Harry was with Chelsea for a decade but married Meghan.

      • Ines says:

        And Meghan actually said yes and married another man before. What does this have to do with anything?

      • whatWHAT? says:

        the difference is that Meghan and Harry didn’t date on and off for 10 years, with Harry proposing to other people in-between. Meghan wasn’t waiting around, hoping to be the last one standing.

        that’s what this has to do with it.

        Waity was a doormat. Meghan was a catch.

      • (The OG) Jan90067 says:

        Sarah11, DID Harry *ask* her, or did they just *talk* about getting married at *some point*. If I remember, she was in school then, and yes, she did say she didn’t want that life quite a few times. I thought that was the reason, not that she actually turned him down because he formally proposed.

        I could be wrong though…just my recall ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ 😊

      • Maria says:

        @Sarah11, I don’t think he ever proposed to Chelsy. They were on and off and it was never that stable.

        He never proposed to Cressida either despite Ingrid Seward begging him to take her back.

      • Wiglet Watcher says:

        Through approved pieces or straight from their own mouths we know Diana’s sister leaked her closeness with Charles and he ended it. And Harry talked about marriage with Davy, but there was never a proposal.

        There was a time when William was said to be engaged for a weekend to Jecca and held up together on her family’s compound. But that went nowhere and they said it was just pretend/joking. Now it’s pretty much forgotten.

      • BABSORIG says:

        @Sarah11, neither Chelsy Davy nor Cressida Bonas have ever mentioned nor implied that Harry proposed to them. They said the reason they broke up with Harry was due to media scrutiny and harassment, not because they didn’t want to be with or marry Harry. Both ladies broke up and reconciled with Harry MULTIPLE times, even with the constant and continuous media scrutiny. So, no Harry did not propose and got turned down by any of them. What I believe is that they all were way to young and none wanted to commit at the time. Cressida just got married last year and Chelsy is still single, nothing wrong with that. They probably weren’t yet ready (and for Chelsy she maybe still not yet ready or maybe doesn’t wanna marry) for any commitment. Harry was ready when he met and proposed to Meghan and the rest is history.
        And @Ines, what’s Meghan’s divorce got to do with anything in this discussion?

    • PEARL GREY says:

      Two grown adults in their 30s, one of which had already been married and the other who had already had long term relationships, are old enough and wise enough to know what they’re looking for and learn from any mistakes they may have made in the past. So no, marrying two years after meeting is not “too fast”, especially if both parties know they want marriage in their future and get to know their partner with the perspective of them being a potential future spouse in mind. Not everyone needs to date for 5 years to know if someone is the person they want to marry. This woman is probably used to being strung along and like a lot of people who are jealous of Meghan, she doesn’t like seeing another woman be loved and proposed to in a timely fashion without having audition for the ring for years. Harry and Meghan weren’t 20 years old. I hope the Sussex squad don’t give this woman an ounce of attention on her social media because this is what she and her ilk crave. She should talk about how she dated teen trafficker Andrew instead of loving marriages which she clearly knows nothing about. All these years later and people are still mad at Meghan because a man fell in love with her and acted accordingly.

      • Wiglet Watcher says:

        My husband and I got engaged a few weeks into dating. Both in our 30s with careers and one had a previous marriage. My mom said it was fine because we both were at an age where we knew what we wanted. So, I fully back your comment. And I couldn’t be happier. Right people meet at the right time and it works.

      • MerlinsMom1018 says:

        MerlinsDad and I met in August shortly after my birthday and were married in November. In six months it will be 43 years.
        And she thought Haz and Meg moved fast
        She needs to have a seat all the way in the back

      • Nic919 says:

        They need to stop using the Cambridges as the sign of how to do things because they are the most miserable couple in public and can barely stand next to each other. Happy couples exist after 10 years of marriage and knowing each other for years prior to that. It’s just that the Cambridges are not happy and trying to pretend that their marriage should be emulated is very disturbing. Most women aren’t ok with cheating spouses and spouses that show disdain to them in public. It’s usually a deal breaker but for Kate it’s not because she wants a crown. Good for her, but let’s not pretend that it is a healthy relationship for most women out there.

      • Sigmund says:

        Yeah, both Hart and Meghan were adults who had previous experience with other relationships when they met each other. They knew what they wanted from each other and life. If there’s a recipe for a healthy, lasting relationship, that sounds like one to me, honestly.

  2. MaryContrary says:

    This woman hung out with Epstein and was a contestant on “Love Island”-so who tf is she to describe Meghan and Harry as “distasteful”? She is beyond tacky.

    • whatWHAT? says:

      I can’t get over her hair in that header pic.

      I wondered how old that pic is because that hair belongs on an episode of Dynasty or WKRP in Cincinnati. I was shocked to read she’s only 44 which means that pic isn’t very old. yikes.

      • ThatgirlThere says:

        Whoa. Only 44 years old?!? I definetly thought she was in her late 40′s or 50.

      • Wiglet Watcher says:

        Cone boobs and hair you might think looks good when you’re putting stuff up your nose.

      • BothSidesNow says:

        @ ThatgirlThere, yes, she certainly looks much older than 44!! Yikes, she isn’t going to age well. Her choice in clothes is ghastly as well.

        May we also point out that Baldimort cheated on Keen Doucheness as well. The only reason that Baldimort married her was due to the fact that, I think, there was pressure on him, as well as Charles, to either marry her or dump her. He already knew that the gig was up and no one else wanted the job, so he buckled. I can also assure you that CarolE also had a hand in pushing him to ask Keen Doucheness.

      • Margot says:

        Sweet WKRP reference! I find the cone boobs quite mesmerizing.

  3. Kay Dozier says:

    Just because he didn’t keep her on the line for a decade while he tried to look for someone else, doesn’t mean it was too fast.

    • Myra says:

      Don’t you know? The only way for a relationship to be successful is if he treats you like shit for over a decade, with no guarantee that he’ll ever put a ring on it. If you are still around after a decade of cheating and breakups, then voilà – you’ve got yourself a lasting marriage! Every girls fairy tale romance.

      • Cecilia says:

        I wonder if its projection. Could it be making the rounds in aristo circles that the other couple’s marriage has hit the rocks? Who knows. I kind of miss the diverging pr from middleton manor and KP tho.

      • The Duchess says:

        Don’t worry @Cecilia, that PR flow will soon come around again. It always does when Baldy inevitably strays again.

      • Myra says:

        Yeah, he is probably still seeing his lady friend in Norfolk. Can’t be the only Prince of Wales without one, you know.

      • BooyahB!tches says:

        William hasn’t stopped throwing his leg over the neighbour. The Turnip Toffs hate Kate, she’s so beneath them they can’t deal with her: she’s middle class, her mother was an air hostess–these things are totally alien to the aristos; they only have to tolerate her because she’s married to Willy, but they all know he throws his leg over women from the crowd who are “his people” and they support it, because he’ll be king and he has the right in their weird little world of what flies and what doesn’t. Kate doesn’t. Willy will be wandering til he’s six feet under.

    • whatWHAT? says:

      yeah, this, 100%.

  4. Maria says:

    Irrelevant loser has irrelevant opinion, who is surprised?

  5. MsIam says:

    Well I guess she’s got to talk about something to stay relevant. *shrug*

  6. Sofia says:

    Someone who dated Andrew shouldn’t really be judging other people’s relationships in my opinion.

    • Becks1 says:

      YUP.

      Also she’s 44 and Andrew is 61. I know for many 17 years isn’t a huge age gap, but to me it depends entirely on when they dated. If she was 20 and Andrew was 37, that’s different to me than being 40 and 57.

      • Sofia says:

        I checked and they apparently went on one date in 1999. Which puts her at 22 and him at 39

      • BayTampaBay says:

        @Sofia – I was going to say the same thing. Lady Hervey did not date Andrew, she just tried to run with that set.

      • Gah says:

        @becks I’m 40 amd my hubs is 57. I’ve always liked older men and waited to date until my very late 20s so it wouldn’t be such a tired cliche.

    • Zapp Brannigan says:

      But did Andrew date her or rent her Ladyship here by the hour, yes I’m going there and I have no f*cks to give about it, her social circle scream how she earns a living.

      If you want further pearls of wisdom from this bint Google what she said about Bill Gates and the covid vaccine.

      • BooyahB!tches says:

        she’s basically a blue blood call girl, but she’s not. nice and no one likes her, why do you think she moved to the US?

  7. Case says:

    They moved quickly because they’re people in their 30s who know what they want and wanted to get moving on marriage and kids. There’s nothing wrong that that.

    • Cecilia says:

      Exactly. They were both in their 30’s. And had enough life experience by that time. When you know, you know right? And 17 months really isn’t that fast for people in their 30’s. Not everybody needs 10 years and a few break ups to be sure

    • BooyahB!tches says:

      I don’t know how many times I’ve seen the same thing: two people in long term r/ships or marriages, they break up, they’re single for a while, and then they meet someone and boom! It seems like it happened “fast,” but by this point they know what they want, and when they find it, there are no doubts.

  8. Steph says:

    These ppl are whacked. Why would you compare the courtship of kids (w&k) to that of ppl in their mid 30s? W&k were still learning who they were and they wanted out of life while they dated. H&M had a much better grasp on that. They didn’t need 10 yrs to figure it out.

  9. Mrs. Peel says:

    Dynasty called, they want their entire look back.

  10. (The OG) Jan90067 says:

    Harry didn’t need to wait for the last one standing.

    He met and married up. Harry KNEW he married up, and he married for LOVE.

    And THAT is what they can’t stand.

    • Over it says:

      Yes. Hell yes

      • BooyahB!tches says:

        yes, Waity & Will-he/Won’t-he are simply envious of the love match, the energy, the success of M&H

    • BlueToile says:

      Yes, yes, yes! I have always thought Harry married up. She did him the “favor” by marrying him! Let’s just face it, Meghan has it ALL going on. She is super high functioning and, until she ended up on British shores, no one had anything negative to say about her. Harry has absolutely upped his game since meeting her. Maybe that is what burns the royal fam. As for them “moving too fast,” I married my husband nine months after our first date. We were pretty young at 19 and 22. We have been married 36 years. (Yeah, I am a lot older than most of you. 😉) This woman knows nothing about dependable relationships. Even if Meg and Harry ever divorce, as so many British upper crust seem to want, Harry is never going back to England or that family. You can take that to the bank.

      • Olivia says:

        He SURE did. He even knows that. I’ve said on here many times before his whole attitude when he’s around her or describing her or introducing her to people is “Look at my wife just LOOK AT HER LOOK HOW AMAZING SHE IS AND I’LL NEVER KNOW HOW I LANDED HER” That’s his whole energy. And he could GAF he’s the prince and the supposedly “more impressive” one. They really turned the commoner marries royalty trope on its head. And I find it so endearing. And I also think he was on the way to being a pretty notable adult public figure in his own right, but man she came on the scene and just hit the gas. They’re such a great team. Short courtship seems to have worked fine for them.

    • whatWHAT? says:

      perfect comment is perfect.

      100% on everything you write, OG Jan.

  11. Elizabeth Kerri Mahon says:

    My knowledge of Lady Victoria Hervey is that she tends to turn up to things wearing as little as possible. She’s done absolutely nothing with her life except try to get her picture taken. She apparently was a model for 5 seconds but she hasn’t been able to parlay that to even the briefest of a career as a TV presenter. According to Wikipedia, “In 2003, Hervey attracted controversy after saying, “It’s so bad being homeless in winter. They should go somewhere warm like the Caribbean where they can eat fresh fish all day.”

  12. Cecilia says:

    Meghan and harry have been through more in the short time that they’ve been married than some people go through in 10 years. And they made it soooo

    • Over it says:

      So true . I wish them nothing nut peace and happiness from here on out.

    • S808 says:

      Exactly. I’m sure they seen each other at their lowest— I’d argue that’s when you really learn about someone. They’re still together and seemingly happy.

  13. Over it says:

    Another one saying Harry should dump his wife and children and go running back into his wonderful Windsor’s arms. Do these people even care that his children are his blood by asking him to walk away from them to carry the keenbridges is just sick. I mean aren’t they supposed to be heavily involved in the church. I don’t think god likes people trying to break up a family, trying to make a man walk away from his wife and children. It saids in the Bible cling to your wife . He can’t do that if he is to run back to salty isle. Return to a bunch of racist bitches who don’t give a f about him or his wife or his children.

    As for that decrepit looking B , she should crawl back into the tomb she came out of.

  14. JT says:

    As had been said here many times, H&M were in their 30s, they’ve had multiple long term relationships, they’ve both worked. When you have experience you know what you want. I don’t know when repeatedly dumping a woman over a goddamn decade became the harbinger of stability of a relationship or a great love story.

    • sunny says:

      100% to this. Once you have dated and lived, you are much better equipped to know what you need in a partner and what you don’t want. A lot of that comes from self-knowledge. Who knows if Harry and Meghan will last but they have been through an extraordinary amount of pressure so far and come out stronger for it which is a great sign.

      The British press continue to want to frame this relationship as a mistake or question Harry’s judgment which is frankly dumb and embarrassing.

      Also while Will and Kate have 3 beautiful children and have been together awhile, they certainly seem like that can’t stand each other so I’m not sure they are a great relationship yardstick.

      • JT says:

        Even Wotton says they stay together out of duty to the queen. Nobody talks about their love nowadays or how much they enjoy being together. Any sort of stability they have is merely a facade.

  15. heygingersnaps says:

    Another loser trying to get some attention on the backs of Harry and Meghan.

  16. Merricat says:

    Lady who?

  17. Nan says:

    My God it’s too early to be poked in the eyes. That dress has fembot written all over it.

    • Ann says:

      I couldn’t stop looking at…..that. It is clearly meant to draw attention and boy does it.

  18. Nivz says:

    Pretty much anyone who says something about the Sussexes- good or bad- is bound to get some attention and they know it.

    Having said that, I do appreciate the ones who say good things though.

    Also this woman looks like a real housewife of somewhere racist and gross. Not at all my image of a born aristocrat. I thought the toffs didn’t try too hard?

    • BayTampaBay says:

      The Hervey’s are in a class by themselves. The whole family is complete nutso.

  19. Woke says:

    If she was living in London when they were dating the tabloids would have made her life impossible. They would’ve trashed her reputation and it would’ve been justification for the firm to not want Harry to marry her.

    • Cecilia says:

      It reveals the establishment and media’s true intentions tho. They never had any plans of ever welcoming meghan. The goal was to pile the tabloid abuse on her until she would leave voluntarily. But then harry threw a span in their works by deciding to marry her and she said yes. Then the goal was (still is) to break up the marriage. Then she got pregnant

  20. Noor says:

    The British tabloids are getting pretty desperate to continue bashing Meghan . They are scraping the bottom of the barrels to give airtime to dubious fringe characters like Lady Colin Campbell and Lady Victoria and not to mention Piers Morgan.

  21. Sid says:

    Folks like her are so deep in the royal/ aristo matrix that they can’t imagine someone willingly giving up that life and being happier in their new life.

  22. S808 says:

    If H&M were gonna divorce it would’ve been when they were in the thick of things. Of course it’s not completely off the table (see: Bill and Melinda) but it’s really unlikely to me. They still look at each other like they’re close to jumping each other at any moment and I just realized Meg’s been pregnant for the majority of their marriage.

    They’ve gone through some sh*t and made it through together. There’s a strong bond that comes from survive that kind of trauma. I don’t see them divorcing. Not any time soon anyway, if ever.

  23. jferber says:

    The woman looks anorexic and has a lot of face fillers and huge hair, making her head look bigger than her body. She does not look like a healthy person at all. Maybe she should get her own life in order before giving unsolicited opinions about people she will never understand.

  24. Demi says:

    That blue dress with the pointy boob thingy is the most distasteful thing I have ever seen really tacky.

    • BlueToile says:

      Yes. Once seen, that dress cannot be unseen.

    • whatWHAT? says:

      there’s a link in a comment thread above (#9) from Demi that’ll make you change your mind.

      it’s a whole slew of “outfits” she wore that are…well…let’s say they leave very little to the imagination. NSFW, I’d say.

  25. Izzy says:

    Irrelevant social climber says what now?

    Wasn’t Lady Victoria rumored to be Lindsay Lohan’s pimp at one point?

  27. Capepopsie says:

    Lady who. . . . .?

  28. Cel2495 says:

    Gosh that hair ! Lol.

  29. Amy Bee says:

    When people are in their 30s there’s no such thing as “moving too fast”. Serena Williams and her husband were together for 15 months before they got engaged

  30. swirlmamad says:

    LMAO….if “Who asked you, b*tch????” was a person. 😒

  31. Sunday says:

    Not that this dingbat even deserves a second thought, but if her argument is that the Sussexes wouldn’t last because Meghan would want to return to California, and the Sussexes have actually already returned to California – together – then doesn’t that negate her entire idiotic bad faith theory anyway?

    • whatWHAT? says:

      yeah, I was like “she…uh…DID end up in America. WITH the Prince. so WTF are you even talking about?”

    • equality says:

      Both her arguments are silly. I know people who got married after a brief courtship and are still married decades later and some who knew each other for years, got married and didn’t last long afterward.

  32. Aphra says:

    That dress!!! hahahahahaha! The boobs targets! hahahahahaha!

  33. Lizzie Bathory says:

    She’s gone full Trump hair. Never go full Trump hair.

  34. Kitty says:

    Victoria is no lady, she has done absolutely nothing with her life, except wear little or nothing, she has no fixed address but sleeps on people floors, actually before de Cambridges wedding she did a interview saying that every girl that came over to William, Kate made sure to send them on there way !!!! She only said this to get some attention , pathetic !

  35. EnormousCoat says:

    My only response to this is “Who??”
    Girl, go grab your 15 minutes somewhere else, like in a British Dynasty reboot or whatever.

  36. Legalease says:

    God, they really want this man to abandon his pregnant wife and child, don’t they? Completely abhorrent in any other context, but apparently something to be encouraged when it comes to the Sussexes. These people are disgusting.

  37. Gk says:

    Obviously they could get divorced, the divorce rate is high, look at both their families. So?
    I do call her on the M wanting US. If she predicted them both leaving royal life in Britain then I want to see proof. Saying someone from another country misses it is obvious.

  38. Gingerbee says:

    All I have to say is that stupid b*tch needs to STFU.

  39. Cj says:

    Why is she acting like he didn’t move to America and is currently living in America, getting jobs and presumably enjoying sunny mansion life? And like she herself doesn’t currently enjoy living in America, it’s just so gauche that Meghan might want that.

    It’s like the British upper class think people can’t enjoy living outside the U.K. “who wants sunshine 23/7 or giant houses without mould? Ick” sigh smdh

    • equality says:

      I don’t know why they’d think that. Didn’t the Brits colonize all sorts of countries to get out of the UK?

      • Jane's Wasted Talent says:

        The colonizers were usually the most vicious bigots- especially to justify the brutality with which they treated the native populations. ‘Going native’- enjoying anything of the original culture- is still the worst thing possible for any of them. That’s why they’re shifting focus from Meghan to Harry now- they’re starting to think Harry is in the process of ‘going native’ and will never forgive him.

        I can’t imagine being so insecure about my own culture that I would attack others who preferred something different, but that is the English tradition.

  40. Nina says:

    I have nothing to say about this over the hill. washed up byotch. Let her live on Bitter Isle. Just here to look at Meghan’s clothes. I wish I had that sense of style. I want that coat.

  41. kelleybelle says:

    Who is this broad? I’ve never heard of her. William only married Kate due to pressure from both families and because Kate refused to go away. And of course the ones he really wanted didn’t want him back. Ouch.

      He’s possibly lousy in bed; I wouldn’t be surprised if he was abusive at home.

  42. nutella toast says:

    1) She’s never been married so trying to figure out how she is any kind of expert on the matter particularly as it pertains to H&M, who she clearly doesn’t know

    2) Found this delicious tidbit: In 2003, Hervey attracted controversy after saying, “It’s so bad being homeless in winter. They should go somewhere warm like the Caribbean where they can eat fresh fish all day.”

    3) The Madonna-wanna-be dress with the hair that literally looks like a dead animal alighted on her head…

  43. vegasschmegas says:

    She gives me broken-down pageant circuit vibes.

  44. Harper says:

    Closer magazine interviewing Lady Hervey. (what, who?) There’s an article with real journalistic merit.

    Of course she’s ingratiating herself with the future king and kween by dissing Meghan and Harry. Also, looks like she and Kate are both members of the cone boob club.

  45. Victoria says:

    The Coalition of the Supreme and Highly Blessed Victorias should send a cease and desist letter regarding her name and it being associated with our Coalition. I really wish people would reconsider naming their children Victoria unless they know for sure they will be not be foolish.

  46. Midge says:

    I mean she’s joking with that hair, right? And yes, Wil and Kate are “British-success” – keeping up appearances, stiff upper lip, quiet suffering of side pieces and all.

  47. Lunasf17 says:

    There is a big difference between meeting someone in your mid 30s when you’re a fully formed adult and know what you want out of life vs late teens/early 20s and trying to figure out who your are in your 20s.

  48. Eurydice says:

    They say “the daughter of the 6th Marquess of Bristol” like it means something. Didn’t he get thrown out of Sandhurst, do time in prison for jewel robbery, massively cheated on all his wives, moved to Monaco to escape his tax bill and swore never to set foot in Britain again? If she wants to know what “black sheep” really means, she just has to look at her father.

    • rmcgrudiva says:

      This comment was a RIDE! I’ll be looking this up; thanks, Eurydice!

    • equality says:

      Apparently, the 7th marquess was no prizewinner either. The 8th, Victoria’s brother, seems stable. She and her sister have quite a reputation as “nipple-flashers” apparently.

  49. Andrew’s Nemesis says:

    This creature, whose morals would make an alley cat look the pinnacle of virtue, dares to brand anything regarding M&H distasteful? She should stick to her many anonymous encounters and endless plastic surgery and keep the Sussexes’ names out of her mouth.

  50. Haylie says:

    Grown folks don’t wait a decade for a ring. Many young people don’t either. It’s a sign of desperation on the part of the waitee and a lack of commitment on the holdout. Especially if multiple breakups and alleged proposals to other people.

  51. Phedre says:

    Their courtship would have been fast if they had been 24, but they were in their 30s! At that point, you’ve dated a bunch of folks and know what you’re looking for and what you need in a partner. I met my husband when I was in my early 30s, and we talked about getting married within 6 months, but we didn’t want to rush so we waited another 2 years to get married. But within 6 months we knew we wanted to spend the rest of our lives together. It was clear very early on that we were a good match, share similar values, and that we complemented each other in healthy, supportive ways. It was an immediate recognition of “oh! THIS is what I was looking for! THIS is why it didn’t work out with other boyfriends!” My husband and I had also grown up a lot, learned from previous relationships, were better communicators and partners than we had been in our 20s, and had spent some time working on ourselves and addressing our individual unhealthy patterns, so that when we did meet it was a quick courtship. I imagine it was the same for Meghan and Harry – they were in their 30s, had dated/married other people, been in therapy and done the work on themselves, so it makes sense that they’d know quickly that they were right for each other.

    Also, maybe I’m a contrary person, but if I was M & H, even if my marriage wasn’t working out (and to be clear, from my outsiders perspective they seem to be really happy and well-matched), I’d hesitate to pull the plug just because of all the shitty, racist people who have been gleefully predicting and hoping my marriage wouldn’t work out. The irony of all these horrible think pieces about the Sussexes’ marriage and how they won’t last and Harry is regretting choosing Meghan is that they’re probably making it more likely that they stay together. Not that Harry and Meghan wouldn’t fight to save their marriage anyway if they were in trouble (which to be clear, I don’t think they are – they seem like they have each other’s backs and are really committed and in love), but I bet all the people like this Victoria a-hole would just make them work even harder and try everything possible to save their marriage if they did end up having problems. I wouldn’t want to give the naysayers the satisfaction of divorcing, because can you imagine all the shitty takes if they did? “We warned Harry!” and “Chastened Harry Tells William ‘You Were Right!’” and “Harry apologizes to his family for marrying Meghan” — the prospect of that would lead me to never ending my marriage even if it wasn’t a good one.

    Man, Meghan and Harry are really living rent-free in SO many people’s heads, aren’t they?

    • Saucy&Sassy says:

      Phedre, and I have no problem believing that these type of headlines will continue well into the future. They are really angry that H&M are happy with each other. Although I can’t see them divorcing, the mindset that particular crowd has is a fantasy land. Harry would NEVER abandon his children. Do you hear that PC?

  52. TheOriginalMia says:

    They dated for nearly two years. I’ve known people who got married after 6 weeks and they are celebrating their 25th anniversary. When you know, you know. Who is Lady Hervey to judge two people she probably doesn’t even know, except in passing. Harry & Meghan may not last, but it ain’t none of her business.

    Judging them by the W&K standard is laughable. William didn’t make Kate wait to prepare her for a life as a royal. He made her wait because he thought there was someone better out there for him. When the well of eligible aristocrats ran dry, he chose Kate.

    And one more thing, Harry & Meghan could have blasted the BRF by naming names. They didn’t. Nothing they did contributed to Phillip’s death. He was nearly a 100. The man was tired.

    • Wiglet Watcher says:

      When William ended it with Kate a few times she ran to the press and it was all bad news for William. It was easier for him to keep her on the hook while he looked for a wife.

      During that time she used her connections for steep discounted clothing, jewels and cars. So no one was too sad. This has always been an arrangement.

  53. L4frimaire says:

    It behooves no one to sit around watching the clock on other people’s marriages. It seems the Mail is just looking for filler on Harry and Meghan now that they have no access to any sources in the UK, their palace leaker bailed on their court case and quit, and it’s slow news in the magic kingdom. This is the most press this woman and her deviated septum have gotten in years.

  54. HK9 says:

    I’m a little unclear here…. who tf asked her anything?? And by the way… the jury is still out regarding Boldimort & Waity..

  55. This old vile woman wants 15 minutes of fame on the account of the Sussexes. you know nothing about the dynamics in their marriage. STFU.

  56. ThatgirlThere says:

    From LA Weekly in 2012:

    Interestingly, she’s a noted party buddy of one Lindsay Lohan, who got into a bit of trouble last year after she allegedly walked out of a Venice jewelry boutique wearing a $2,500 necklace she had tried on.

    This one is of high moral character eh?

  57. aquarius64 says:

    This salty witch is mad because was she was an aristocratic jumpoff for the frog prince and failed to seal the deal for a royal match. Biracial American Meghan is a royal duchess who outranks Lady Thristy with or without the HRH.

  58. bamaborn says:

    Anyone heard from crakhead Uncle Gary this week? Kind of miss his musings and ruminations. Lol

  59. MJM says:

    My courtship with DH was about that long and we’ve been married 26 years.

    • Saucy&Sassy says:

      MJM, I wonder what the “regular” people think when the BM writes edicts about how long a courtship is supposed to be? I can’t imagine that anyone is going to let the brf or BM dictate how long they have to know someone before they marry them. Seriously? I know the royals are supposed to be somethin’ special–but come on, they met in their 30s.

  60. Lizzie says:

    What a fool. Harry and Meghan have one of the strongest marriages in the much divorced rf.

  61. NotSoSimpleTaylor says:

    Victoria’s still bitter Harry wouldn’t even consider her as a wife. She’s still holding out hope she can be wife #2. She’s a piece of work and very unpleasant.

  62. Jay says:

    Oof, I can’t think of a more disqualifying six words than “former love interest of Prince Andrew”. I think if given the choice, I would insist on being referred to as “failed boutique owner and occasional reality contestant” Victoria Hervey instead.

  63. Soupie says:

    What a stupid stupid dress. That’s all I’ve got!

  64. SenseOfTheAbsurd says:

    Why on earth would anybody want her opinion on anything after she’s shown she has the appallingly bad judgement to date Prince Andrew?

  65. Savannah says:

    At the time, I thought it was a *little* fast too, especially because it was long distance. But it’s been, what, 5 or 6 years? That ship has sailed.

  66. MerlinsMom1018 says:

    Ummmmmm….that dress???? And that hair???? Girl get in a wrestling match with a badger or something?
    Just a thought… She’s a “British socialite” now living in L.A. I see the irony there.

  67. Lila says:

    I don’t really care about what this chick has to say, but isn’t it interesting that nobody ever says Beatrice’s marriage is doomed even though she also dated her now husband for less than a year before getting engaged and he left his fiancee for her?

    • Savannah says:

      True, but that was a similar aristo match where part of the roll out was how they’d grown up together etc

  68. Boo says:

    I looked her up on Instagram – she has some bonkers ideas.

    • Nivz says:

      See she got what she wanted. People are looking her up, even if it’s out of incredulity. Lol.

  69. Mina_Esq says:

    The only thing i don’t see lasting is the monarchy :) She also didnt factor into her equation the fact that Harry also wanted to move to America! Haha

  70. Calibration says:

    This is cheap ass name checking at people a million times more famous than her, that appeals to the Fail crowd. No one knows if Sussexes will be forever, but they’ve done spectacularly well in stressful circumstances. Megxit was absolutely started by racist trolls while she was a working royal.

    She might also take a check on what’s ‘distasteful’ giving an interview or being a paedophile

  71. MMadison says:

    I can’t get passed that dress so….. no comment

  72. blunt talker says:

    My aunt and uncle dated for exactly two years and than go married-they have been married 45 years going on 46-they still love each other and act playfully with each other after all this time-They don’t have any children either-go figure-A high school girlfriend of mine dated a senior during their high school years-they started in about the ninth grade she was and he was in the eleventh-after high school they both went to college-she went to a 4 year college and finished-he went to a 2 year junior college and then started his own business-they married a year after she finished college and got a job-they had been together about 9 or ten years before marriage-they had one child and divorced after 3 years-length of a courtship does not matter-I am glad Harry and Meghan got married in their thirties-the early twenties can be rough on young couples.

  73. SenseOfTheAbsurd says:

    Was just listening to the latest Sean Attwood true crime podcast, and the guest had some interesting things to say about LVH, her stupidity, her racism, and her suspicious links with Epstein.

  74. Curious says:

    LMAO. woman who never ever got proposed too says Harry /Meghan moved too fast it will end in disaster.17 months is not too soon at their age . they was not spring youths anymore. they both dated and knows. meghan dated her husband for many yrs before they got married.she was around 23 when she started to date her ex husband. harry dated chelsey for many yrs they was young. they was on and off during their relationship . so not a steady relationship..he was never going to marry her. not with all the on and off . they was not a stable couple for marriage.chelsy knew the harry that was at a age where partying was the thing. it was all about having fun drunk times,during the holidays and when he was home from the army.. and still they was on and off.lolol

  75. Ania says:

    When you meet the right person and you are ready then you don’t need long courtship. I met my husband when we were students and married after 5 years only because we were waiting to get jobs and become independent before marriage. But after a couple of months I knew I will marry him and our conversations and plans were being made like we already knew we’ll be together always. We didn’t even need to have „Where is this going?” conversation. After a year or so my MIL told me that when he came back from our first date she new she met someone and It’s serious.

  76. Likeyoucare says:

    When you have never had real love then you will be skeptical when you saw meghan and harry.
    Add white supremacy with a black heart you will become a lady in name but a bitch in real life.

  77. Kh says:

    Blah blah whatever. Sometimes the longest courtship still ends in divorce. sometimes when it’s right it’s right. My sister and her husband were engaged at 3 months, married at 6 months. They just celebrated their 29th anniversary and you never met a more sympatico couple. I prefer not to root for couples to break up, unless there is abuse.
