Levin: The Sussexes are ‘trying to set up some sort of alternate woke royal family’

The Royal Family attends a Service to commemorate the Armistice on the centenary of the end of WWI

Yesterday, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex posted a joint statement and call to action on their Archewell website – you can read the statement and coverage here. Harry and Meghan not only expressed concern for the situations with the pandemic, the Haiti earthquake and the Afghanistan withdrawal, but they also highlighted a number of charities and organizations doing good work around those three crises. The statement was compassionate and productive, and it was the kind of statement which the royal family should have made. The Windsors would never, though. some of them will issue statements of condolence, none of them would use their enormous platforms to highlight charities in need of donations. So of course the unhinged stalkers of the royal press pack couldn’t wait to unload streams of bile at the Sussexes:

Prince Harry’s biographer Angela Levin told FEMAIL: ‘I think Harry and Meghan’s grandiose, comfy and caring comments about the situation in Afghanistan, the disaster in Haiti and new Covid variants is another example of them trying to set up some sort of alternate woke royal family. Like most of their “compassionate” gestures there is no indication about what they themselves will do and whether any donations will be going through Archewell Foundation.

‘Their comment that they want to “alleviate suffering among those we know and those we may never meet – that will prove our humanity,” sounds so similar to their recent comment we must be compassionate “to those we know and those we don’t know” that makes it sound equally phoney.’

[From The Daily Mail]

Imagine what the reaction would have been if the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge had issued a joint statement about these crises and highlighted some charities on the ground. We would hear for weeks on end about how Will and Kate are the perfect Future King and Future Queen and everything they do is so regal and perfect. But since it was Harry and Meghan, we get… nitpicking like “there is no indication about what they themselves will do and whether any donations will be going through Archewell Foundation…” The Sussexes put links to charities and organizations so that people could give directly to those groups. It’s not like, you know, the Royal Foundation, which is just a middle-man group skimming donations and redirecting funds however they please. As for the Alternate Woke Royal Family… H&M are the Montecito Royals, thank you very much. If the Sussexes’ actions are so abhorrent, why is everyone on Dusty Saltine Island obsessed with them and obsessed with copying them?

    The royal commentators need to let Harry go. He’s setting up his family, not an alternative court. Angela, he’s just not into you. Get a new royal to obsess about. I hear Andrew’s available.

    • Snuffles says:

      I alternate between thinking they know this and they continue on this track in order to feed the beast and pay the bills; and thinking they’re still shell shocked and in denial that Harry has truly left them.

      • Christine says:

        I peaced out that they give even one gram of care about Harry, at the word “grandiose”. They are slicing veins open on the ONLY royals who are giving a good name to “royal”.

        Yes, it’s super grandiose to issue a heartfelt statement and links to charities that can help, all over the world, in the many crises the world faces currently. I can’t think of a single time Archewell has EVER asked for any sort of donation to…Archewell. I’m sure they have corporate sponsors, but when it comes to the public at large, they give options to those who want to donate, that don’t remotely profit them. I’m not sure how anyone reporting on Harry and Meghan on Salty Isle can look themselves in the mirror.

    • BayTampaBay says:

      The Royal commentators (especially at The Daily Fail) will never let Harry go as articles on the Sussexes (in the Daily Fail) always generate a minimum of 3K non-moderated comments. This is nothing but the Daily Fail maximizing revenue$ via click$ and comment$.

      This particular article by Levin generated 12K comment$ in less than 24 hours.

      • (TheOG) Jan90067 says:

        We all know they do this to rile up and feed the xenophobes and racists, but I do wonder how many of those 12K are the paid bots/paid sh*t stirrers, to keep firing up the fuel of hatred.

      • Cessily says:

        That is why I never comment and read screenshots others might provide or wait till they write about it here. Is there anything else someone can do to limit or remove the financial incentive?

      • Becks1 says:

        @TheOG there are a LOT of paid bots and shitstirrers, which is why I don’t fully buy the argument that this is just about clicks. The DM pays people to post negative things about the Sussexes. and it refuses to shut down the comments for a Sussex story although it will do that for other royals.

        An in depth story about Andrew would also generate a ton of clicks. A story about William’s affairs would generate a ton of clicks. The DM is not running those stories.

      • (TheOG) Jan90067 says:

        Agreed Becks. I would just like to know the ratio. They also NEVER “moderate” comments for H&M as they do for the others, esp. Pedo.

        And we all know, and have confirmation, that they CAN and DO catch and kill stories about the ones they want to.

      • BabsORIG says:

        Naaaah, this “it’s all about clicks” is just wishful thinking on some people’s parts. Y’all know these are bot clicks, 90% of the vile posts are from DM people, so what you mean “there are a million clicks that’s why they write these Sussex bashing stories”? This is about the racism they get away with by hiding behind stories like this and bot clicking them, it’s that simple. This is the only way the BM and the BRF can publicly subject the Sussexes to racism and cyber attacks/bullying with no fear for any pushback or anything like that. Just 🤮🤮

    • Over it says:

      Don’t you sometimes wish that Meghan would one day finally snap and grab this unhinged B Angela by the collar, get all up in her face and say listen you crazy ass Bi—-ch, Harry is my man, he is my husband, do you understand? You will never have him now f off

      • Eurydice says:

        I like Meghan’s style better – “See? Here I am, peaceful under a tree, with Harry…and you’re not.”

      • ennie says:

        that’s what they want, a reaction from the Sussexes s they can engage and make more $$$.
        Like poets have said:“The dogs are barking, a sign we move forward”.

      • Noodle says:

        And tell her she can’t possibly be compassionate to her because she doesn’t know her. Truly, compassion is only for the people we know who are just like us.

      • Merricat says:

        .

    • Weatherby says:

      “…. he’s just not into you,” gave me a good chuckle.

      It’s disturbing the levels of rabid obsession that Royal reporters have over Prince Harry and his family. They’re desperate for a permanent scapegoat, and the desperation is showing.

    • Debbie says:

      Oh my God, that reaction from Levin was so jealous and bitter that Samantha the 1/2-sister called saying she wanted her schtick back. What an unhinged woman!

  2. Loretta says:

    They’re so scared about the Sussexes and their popularity. It’s not Harry and Meghan’s fault that the Royal Family is so dull.

  3. Mina_Esq says:

    Isn’t the whole idea behind royal patronage that it brings attention to a charity and helps it raise funds? Yet somehow it’s “phoney” when H and M do it. Sure, Jann. *eyeroll*

    • Pao says:

      Correct me if i’m wrong but to be “woke” is to be aware of racial and social (in) justice right? So what angela is saying is that the rest of the royal family couldn’t care less about these issues?

      • Cessily says:

        Exactly.. she cares about keeping the press and process server away from the (alleged) rapist of a trafficked child(ren). I am so heartsick with society and the lack of humanity in today’s world.. but this by the Head of the Church is a low they will never redeem from themselves in my eyes.

      • Lorelei says:

        The British media has really turned “woke” into a slur

      • Lemons says:

        I mean…yes. Do you think the commenters who support her care about these issues? Absolutely not (unless it affects them personally). Until they start feeling the pain, they’ll trash H&M. When they are affected, they’ll blame H&M for not individually recognizing them.

      • Courtney B says:

        @Lorelai the US media too. Especially media run by Murdoch. Big coincidence.

      • Debbie says:

        Whenever I hear the British media using the word “woke,” a word that comes from younger Americans, it just reminds me of the adage that when old people start using young people’s terminology it loses its edge and grows stale.

        Off-topic but, I have been to England years ago but I cannot imagine ever going back. I would not give these people, or those who allow them to get away w/ this conduct, my tourism money.

    • Eurydice says:

      And the criticism here is the exact opposite of that against Meghan’s 40×40 appeal. Then they were saying Meghan shouldn’t put herself in front and should support established organizations to do the helping. Now, they’re all “never mind what the organizations you’ve highlighted are doing, what are you personally going to do?”

  4. Asking for a friend says:

    Imagine being such a bitter old hag that you would try to dunk on people for being kind.

    • Seraphina says:

      TRUTH – doing what they can to make this world a bit better – and they have the platform – and yet to be belittled at ever turn. I once heard that it is our responsibility as human beings to try and make this place better to the best of our abilities. The bitter is real in this hag indeed.

    • Anna says:

      Yeah, being “caring” or “compassionate” (to Black or brown people, in Haiti or Afghanistan) is now bad. Pure bigotry.

    • isabella says:

      Also, her credentials are so fake. Anybody can write a book about anybody. This is meaningless:
      “Prince Harry’s biographer Angela Levin”

  5. Sinead Dunphy says:

    I think that idea of setting up a new Royal Court in Montecito is fantastic. I doubt it’s what H&M wanted or planned but if the British media is going to continually refer to it like that then so be it!!!!

    • Snuffles says:

      I bet the residents of Montecito are getting a huge kick out of it.

    • Seraphina says:

      OHHHHHHHHH, a costume party for Halloween. Can you imagine as a fundraiser? Now THAT would be something where I would do all I could to save up the money to buy a ticket to that ball.

    • ArtHistorian says:

      Also, it is going to be a thorn in William’s side. He was so scared of H & M in North America as an alternative royal court. The BM treating them like this is going to aggravate him to no end.

    • aftershocks says:

      ^^ Right @Sinead Dunphy!

      I stan the King & Queen of Montecito! They are the real deal! They are living their lives with grace, courage, and with genuine caring about others through #CompassionInAction.

      They are working hard on many fronts, while raising and nurturing two little beauties who will be part of the future. The Sussexes are hoping to make a difference for their children and for all children being able to even have a future world within which it may still be possible to live and to love.

  6. Anwahets says:

    I know what the rota and the likes of Levin are doing but don’t they realize they are hastening the end/irrelevancy of the monarchy. Everything Meghan and Harry do they attack while weeks or months later the other royals copy what Meghan and Harry did and they over praise it to sycophantic level while the rest of the world ignores them. What these people are doing is showing such a bad, embarrassing image of the UK to the rest of the world. Just venomous reactions daily just becauae they believe Harry should seek their approval of who he wanted to marry and present Meghan and Archie to them while they lived there.
    I think now like with Samantha, Angela Levin should be placed on the fixated persons list. She behaves like a bitter scorned woman who imagined a relationship with Harry who is not her son, boyfriend or friend.

    • Pao says:

      There was a British journalist (one of the few who defended m&h) who once said that she had a close friend who was a British official working abroad. According to her friend the treatment of meghan was so obviously racist it made it hard to promote the UK abroad. I’ve long said that the British media will make the monarchy fall quicker that meghan and harry ever could. It seems like they are also capable of throwing the UK into a situation of utter doom without the brits realizing it.

    • Amy Too says:

      I mean, saying that Meghan and Harry are setting up an alternate royal court by doing royal-like things like making statements and helping out charities by publicizing them and encouraging people to donate…. And then saying that it’s all disingenuous, fake, phoney, and self-serving because they’re not donating any of their own money and their statements are grandiose and sometimes use repeat phrasing thus making them seem very PR-oriented as opposed to personal, is basically saying that the royal family institution itself is disingenuous, fake, phoney, and grandiose, and that the royals only ever do anything related to charity in order to draw positive PR attention to themselves. She’s mad at the Sussexes for doing things that the royals do. And the things the Sussexes are doing (which are the same things that the royals do) are bad, stupid, selfish, out of touch, and do not indicate actual caring or a real desire to help in a self-less way. Okay then. Quit telling on yourselves, royals and royal reporters; you’ve been doing it A LOT recently.

      • Debbie says:

        I know. That statement from Angela Levin was SO insane I’m worried about her. As we say in America, “Thought and prayers to you, Angela.”

  7. aquarius64 says:

    Levin looks like a Bitter Betty who’s upset Harry didn’t call after their hookup. Get a restraining order Haz.

  8. Jessica says:

    Being compassionate and caring about people you don’t know is “phoney.” She’s telling on herself there.

  9. Izzy says:

    This is one of those times I wish Camp Sussex would hit back hard for the attempt to smear Archewell. They posted direct links to the organization. They are owed a front page apology by these hacks.

  10. Becks1 says:

    Didn’t they post the direct links to the charities on their websites? Isn’t Archewell already partnered with WCK and working to build community centers around the world? Didn’t harry found an international sporting event for veterans? Weren’t they chairs of VaxLive?

    Or am I thinking of some other royal couple living in Montecito with 16 bathrooms?

    All that to say – they’re doing (and have done) a lot more than your faves Angela, so STFU.

    • Amy Too says:

      And why would you want to slow down donations by filtering them through your royal foundation first? Especially for something like disaster relief, and I would consider Haiti, Afghanistan, and the pandemic to all have a disaster relieve type of feel to them. The Sussexes trust their fans to be knowledgeable enough to know where to donate, and compassionate enough to take the time to donate to multiple different charities so that all of those charities listed get the help they need. It’s more transparent this way too. I know that all of my money is going to the cause I wish to support through the charity of my choice at this exact time which is important during an emergency. As opposed fo donating to a foundation and having some of the donation skimmed for the running of the foundation, having some of the donation possibly just sit in there until a later time, having some of it go to some random future project (like the buttons center for keenwell kids who can’t read good), and generally not knowing exactly where, when, or to whom my donation will be distributed. Why would I want that right now in a time sensitive emergency and why would the Sussexes ask for that? I feel like this is great proof that the Sussexes care about helping people and alleviating suffering. They don’t care about boosting their own PR, looking generous by announcing what they personally will be giving (and I’m sure they donated. We don’t need to know how much), or building a large foundation just so they can say they have a large foundation with a lot of money. They want to help charities.

      And the fact that the article is framed in such a way to contrast the Sussexes with the royal family, gives me even more evidence that the RF, and W and K specifically, care more about the looking good, publicizing and being thanked and praised for how much they and their foundation are contributing, and having a big foundation with a lot of money just so they can say that have s bag foundation with a lot of money. (Of course the Cambridges aren’t actually good at anything relating to raising money and funding their foundation…. But that’s what’s important to them when (if, even) they consider charitable giving during an emergency.)

    • Christine says:

      You two are on the roll of the century! Yes.

  11. Amy Bee says:

    Harry and Meghan are doing what the Royal Family should be doing and the royalists’ unhinged reaction was an indication that they feel the same way. Harry and Meghan puts the Royal Family to shame with their lack of compassion for and response to major events. No doubt the Queen should have put out a statement of support to her troops and veterans yesterday. CH put out two tweets about its gardens while everybody was talking about Afghanistan. I also think that the royalists still haven’t come to terms with the fact that Harry and Meghan have left and are not going to do things the Royal way.

    • Snuffles says:

      @amybee

      This reminds me of a scene in season 4 of The Crown where Charles and Diana get into a huge fight over her very successful solo visit to New York. Diana thinks Charles owes her an apology for doubting her and his response was:

      “ Your capacity for self delusion never ceases to amaze me. We’re all glad you are back where you belong without too much damage being done… the exquisite selfishness of your motives…the calculated vulgarity of the antics. Knowing full well the headlines that they would get. Grandstanding like that. You think we couldn’t do that too? Theatrically hug the wretched and the dispossessed and cover ourselves in glory all over the front pages?”

      I have no doubt that’s what Charles, the Cambridges and the courtiers are thinking about everything the Sussex’s do.

      • Leanne says:

        @Snuffles – You are so right.

      • Eurydice says:

        Another example of how the BRF are antiquated and out of step. It’s no longer considered theatrical grandstanding to show outward signs of compassion. Today, the inability and/or unwillingness to show compassion is considered a cause for therapy.

      • Amy Bee says:

        @Snuffles: Harry did say that things changed after the Australia tour. I’m sure they got a similar response when they got home.

      • Snuffles says:

        @eurydice

        Inability to show compassion seems to be a Windsor trait. I don’t know if it’s because stoicism is programmed into them from birth or they’re just not capable. In Season 3 of The Crown in the Aberfan tragedy episode, the Queen and her courtiers balked at the idea of her coming to visit Wales to comfort the survivors. It was the same when Diana died. She couldn’t fathom why she needed to speak with the people to comfort them.

        In the show when one of the Queen’s advisors kept suggesting she visit Wales after the tragedy she was like “Put on a show? The Crown doesn’t do that.” Then she dismissed him. Other members of the family went, including Philip. The Queen asked Philip if he wept and he said “What kind of a question is that? Are you going to tell me it was inappropriate?” The Queen only finally went because the newspapers accused of her being cold and uncaring towards the working class. She had to be ADVISED to display emotion. Later in the episode, the Queen confessed to the Prime Minister how she’s never been able to cry. Not over deaths of loved family members, not during WWII, not when her children were born. She wondered if there was something wrong or deficient in her.

        Honestly, sometimes I wonder the same. People laud her for her stoicism and absence of emotion, but it doesn’t work on all occasions or situations. Sometimes displays of compassion are needed.

      • Eurydice says:

        @Snuffles – I was reminded of that scene, too. It’s not “putting on a show” if you actually feel compassion. But Elizabeth had to dab her dry eyes with a handkerchief in order to show she felt anything.

      • Couch potato says:

        @Snuffels It’s definitly a Windsor trait, not a “royal trait”. Members of other royal families have many times been seen showing real compassion and care for victims of tragedies. They’ve been seen choked up and in tears, and no one thinks less of them for it, quite the contrary.

    Does the Principality of Montecito have some sort of peerage system? Does their power only extend over California, or do they have plans for a new commonwealth?

  15. Harper says:

    Grandiose, comfy, and caring comments? Comfy? Levine’s criticisms are now entering bizarro heights. For everyone’s sake, I hope Levin can take a summer holiday, relax, have a few drinks, and get one of those “what the heck am I doing with my life?” drunken moments of truth and vow to stop this endless unhinged commentary about H&M.

    • Lorelei says:

      When I saw the word “comfy” I was so confused; it makes absolutely no sense in that context – unless it has a British connotation I’m unaware of. But it’s not as if the Fail has copy editors, so. It was so strange though.

      • aftershocks says:

        ^^ LOL, my thoughts exactly. ‘Grandiose,’ and ‘comfy,’ make no sense whatsoever either separately or together in this context, and never together in any context. Levin don’t speak or write in English apparently. She thinks and writes in racist ‘deranger dialect.’

    • lee says:

      Are you kidding me? No one ever heard of this woman or most of the royal rota experts other than the annual Diana tributes. A whole new ecosystem has been created of people who do nothing more than crap on the Sussex family for money. The more unhinged the more clicks. No one takes the rota mob seriously.

  16. Over it says:

    I can feel her rejection from Harry all the way here.damm, this bitter jealous bitch is never ever going to get over the fact that Harry never wanted her but 💯 wants his wife Meghan

  17. Jan says:

    This old hag, knows darn well the Sussexes are helping finance World kitchen (thanks Bezos for your donation) who are on the ground right now in Haiti providing meals.
    When the Sussex Squad raised funds for CAMFED, the Sussexes matched the funds, they don’t have to tell anyone on Shutter Island a damn thing.
    Folks in Montecito can get World Wide coverage if they sneeze, can’t say the same for that back stabbing family, unless it refers to sex scandals.

  18. rawiya says:

    “there is no indication about what they themselves will do and whether any donations will be going through Archewell Foundation…” The Sussexes put links to charities and organizations so that people could give directly to those groups”

    I just came to yell about this, but Kaiser beat me to it. Also, this is borderline libel with the underlying assumption that donations going through Archewell won’t get to the intended recipients.

    Thank goodness, the Brits have the Royal Foundation, where money raised from a cookbook for one charity was requested to fluff up the account of another.

    • Lorelei says:

      “Going through Archewell Foundation”

      How? What is she even talking about?

      • MsIam says:

        I guess she thinks the Sussexes should be begging for money like televangelists. But the fact that the Sussexes ask for donations to be sent directly to the charities, (just like Sussex Squad does) means they can’t try to imply that the Sussexes are misusing the money . You know they would love to say that Hermes blanket or Meghan’s jewelry was bought with misappropriated funds.

      • Lorelei says:

        Have the Sussexes *ever* asked for contributions that would go directly to them? IIRC they always posted links to their patronages or whichever organization they were highlighting so the money would go straight there (faster).

    • Nic919 says:

      I strongly suspect levin is projecting onto Archwell the sketchy scheme that actually happens with the Cambridge foundation which does not get audited in the same way any other non profit would.

      • rawiya says:

        Wait, didn’t Andrew’s foundation get audited and it turned out the executive assistant or director (damn, can’t remember who) was being paid more than they should have been and from money that was not to be used to pay them? There are so many scandals surrounding this family that I can’t remember the details on all of them.

  19. Lori says:

    Yet this old hag is still willing to hang her shingle out as Prince Harry’s biographer. Kindly, start referring to Angela Levin as the twisted embittered hack she actually is.

  20. Cessily says:

    This woman was posting with Murky back and forth about christening a moon bump and getting a doll baby! How she can have a column or platform beyond Twitter troll is beyond me. She is unhinged in her hate and bias. She is also a very evil and bitter old *itch. When I think of royalist she is the “poster child” that represents them to a tee. Old, nasty, bitter, racists and if anyone “acts above their station” it is her.
    The fact that she criticizes everything The Sussex’s do and twists it to taint humanitarian efforts while contributing nothing but vile hatred into the world is reprehensible. She is dangerous because she incites and legitimizes (in their minds) the haters with interacting and spreading bizarre misinformation and evil lies. Her audience is of questionable mental health, reasoning skills and scary fanatics.

    • Lorelei says:

      They’re doing the “fake baby” thing with Lilibet, too? If Lilibet doesn’t exist, why did they just spend weeks on end bitching about her name? These people, jfc.

      • Cessily says:

        She is embedded on Twitter with the “rangers” and bad marbles (typo kept deliberately) . It is sick. And yes she is right in there perpetuating these bizarre, dangerous and extreme narratives

    • Cessily says:

      Murky is so vile the Invictus Games social media accounts have blocked her.. how sick of a person are you that CHARITIES block you? And this is the type of person and bandwagon Angela L is intrenched with and encourages. (Murky actually posted this like a badge of honor)

  21. Dee says:

    If H & M are “woke” then it’s time to wake up lazy, sleepy W & K. Somebody in California is being much more productive and successful than the salty leftovers living in British castles and mansions.

  22. Eurydice says:

    They’re not trying to set up a royal family; they ARE a royal family. Harry is a Prince and a Duke, grandson of the Queen, son of the future King – Meghan is a Duchess, their children are great-grandkids to Queen Elizabeth. And they’re doing now exactly what they would have done if they were still working royals – making statements to comfort and helping their patronages in doing good work.

    • Lorelei says:

      This is exactly what addles them: they know this, but can’t profit from any of it, and they’re so angry and bitter and resentful so they just continue to lash out at the Sussexes. Meanwhile, William and Kate are on, what, a two month+ vacation? And even if they weren’t, the RRs know the Cambridges aren’t capable of doing even a fraction of what the Sussexes do. Even if they wanted to, they couldn’t, because they don’t have a shred of the creativity that Meghan brought to the table.

      They’d never admit it but I’m sure they look at all of Meghan’s projects both when she was a working royal and when she wasn’t, see how interesting and impressive they all are, and they know that Kate can’t hold a candle to her. They can see how dull and apathetic the Cambridges are, yet they have to praise them constantly in writing, which must get so grating after a while. But they need their paychecks, so they follow their marching orders, and it results in this absolute shitshow. (Although I don’t even know if Levin is employed by anyone? She seems to be some sort of freelancer? So she’s genuinely unhinged all on her own.) Kate will never supply them with interesting, productive initiatives like the ones Meghan churns out regularly.

      Their ire should be directed not at Harry and Meghan, but at William and Kate for giving them absolutely nothing to write about. And for being so GDboring and apathetic that even when they are written about, not that many people care. But, invisible contract. What I don’t get is that they *could* write stories about the Cambridges that would generate a metric ton of clicks, but they would need to be about things like William’s cheating. What on earth is William giving them at this point that is valuable enough that they’re still willing to cover for him and forgo all of the income they know they could take in if they started covering the Cambridges honestly?

    How dare Harry and Meghan make statement about caring for others and encourage people to do what they can to help! The nerve! The BM are in a race to the bottom with Faux News on how insulting and beyond contempt they can behave. And Angela Levin is becoming irredeemable if she isn’t already.

  24. ennie says:

    They want them poor, they want them to be donating every penny they earn. It hurts them to see them living well. Harry is a freaking veteran, he can have his say much more than her. Meghan has been a pro-women activist for years. They are in synch to what they have done for decades. Way to make her (levin’s) priorities known.

  25. tamsin says:

    I only read this odious little gnome’s bile via Celebitchy, but it comes across as very personal and unhinged. I get the impression she is a real case for any psychiatrist. I don’t think any person can produce such poison continually and not seriously harm their own psyche.

  26. Amy Bee says:

    Look Harry and Meghan were supposed to be destitute by now. Heck, the media was laughing at them when they said they wanted to be financially independent. Harry and Meghan establishing their foundation and being outspoken advocates are a constant reminder to the Royal Family, media and royalists that their dreams for poverty and humiliation for Harry and Meghan didn’t come true. That’s why we see these angry outbursts from them.

      @ Amy Bee, that is exactly why they continue to hound and exert their little bitter fingers into bashing them at every opportunity!! Levin and the entire bunch of bitter rats have been angry beyond belief that Harry and Meghan didn’t fall and fail in the US, as they had hoped. Not only are they bitter, but they act like rabid dogs without the ability to be truthful in their writing. The best outcome has been that Harry and Meghan are promoting compassion, empathy and understanding to help those who truly need it. The additional hatred comes from the fact that Harry and Meghan have become worldwide global ambassadors for humanity and have far exceeded anything that the royal bitter rats could have ever imagined in such a short period of time. We see Harry and Meghan taking opportunities to encourage spreading goodwill which they never could have imagined. The fact that Meghan put together the 40 x 40 initiative for her birthday truly threw them for a loop!!
      As long as people like Levin continue to bash and abuse Harry and Meghan, the more inept and incompetent TOBB and Keen Guevara look!!

    These hypocrites went from prohibiting the Sussexes from using the word Royal (when they wrongly thought their connection to that word + HRH would be the key to H&M’s success) to desperately trying to connect them to that very word every time the legitimate media (worldwide) covers them. The Sussexes does not use or need to use Royal for anything, so the BM are desperate to keep them linked to all things royal! Karma has finally come knocking!!!🤣

  28. Kristie says:

    What annoys me is that they’re calling it an ‘essay’. It’s 218 words (or so they claim- I didn’t count) and that is closer to a paragraph.

    I started following the ‘royal family’ topic on twitter. I have never seen such vile hate such as what I have seen by twitter posters. It’s abusive and bullying.. it’s really disgusting how twisted this is. I really can’t believe so much energy is going into these 2. It’s really sad- I hope they’re insulated from that- no one needs that.

  29. LovesitinNM says:

    They’re not *trying* to be anything. They are being their real authentic selves and I love it!

  30. karlie says:

    I mean if anything this makes them look way worse. They only view compassion and wokeness as performative? Get off my lawn.

    I wanted to donate to a charity for Arghanistan, I’ll use one onf Archewell’s recommendations, thank you very much. Use your voices to amplify something useful.

  31. lanne says:

    royalists are a cult. HM escaped the cult. You can tell if you are in a cult by how difficult it is to leave. Cult members who leave must be punished. Honestly, if the royals could get away with dragging them back to the UK a la Dubai sheik, they would.

  32. harla says:

    I realize that the Sussex’s are not Trying to set up an alternate court but I’m loving that an alternate court is coming into being. For those of us who find the BRF stale, pale and male, in thoughts and actions, this alternate court is full of life, colorful and inclusive!

  33. MangoAngelesque says:

    So gauche to attempt to be anything other than the original bigoted, racist, and abusive British royal family.

  34. cisne says:

    I think we need to reclaim the word WOKE from purjuritive that these racist classist white people have made it to be. Note damn thing wrong with being WOKE. We woke and we proud! Deal wid it!!

  35. Agreatreckoning says:

    Angela. Not sweet Angela. So you’re husband married a hack marauder…

  36. one of the marys says:

    “Like most of their “compassionate” gestures there is no indication about what they themselves will do and whether any donations will be going through Archewell Foundation.”

    I find this outrageously offensive and deceptive. The Sussexes have a track record of action, they act, they donate, they participate, they create partnerships. damn that woman for belittling their track record, it’s so deceptive, just fuck off and stop talking about them

  37. By this point, Harry and Meghan were meant to be penniless. When they stated they wanted to be financially independent, the media mocked them. Harry and Meghan’s foundation and vocal advocacy serve as a continual reminder to the Royal Family, media, and royalists that their fantasies for Harry and Meghan’s poverty and humiliation did not come true. That is why we observe their enraged outbursts.
