King Charles III ‘uninvited’ Prince Harry & Meghan from the Sunday reception

As soon as it was clear that Queen Elizabeth would pass away, the Windsors all moved into action to travel to Balmoral. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex announced, via their spokesperson, that they were traveling to Balmoral as well. Which is when then-Prince Charles apparently called his younger son and ordered him to leave Meghan at Frogmore Cottage, saying explicitly that Meghan would not be welcome in Scotland. Harry arrived late to Balmoral, hours after QEII passed away, and returned to Windsor early the next morning. We didn’t find out about Charles’s call until hours later, when the new king and new Prince of Wales began smearing the f–k out of both Harry and Meghan for having the audacity for wanting to travel together to Scotland. That set the tone for everything that’s happened since.

After all that, King Charles III has been lurching from one self-made catastrophe to another self-made catastrophe. First it was the 180 on whether Harry could wear a uniform to memorialize his grandmother – that reversal only came after widespread international condemnation for forcing a combat veteran to wear civilian clothes while the non-veteran royals waltzed around in their uniforms. Then, on Friday, it got even worse. At first we heard that King Charles would host a reception, at Buckingham Palace, on Sunday evening for all of the visiting world leaders and dignitaries. When the reception was announced, they made a point of saying the Duke and Duchess of Sussex were invited. Then, hours later, a stunning reversal: suddenly, the Palace was flat-out insisting that the Sussexes were “uninvited.”

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex appear to have been uninvited to a state reception hosted by the King and Queen at Buckingham Palace on Sunday evening. The couple received an invitation to the grand event for world leaders and foreign royals earlier this week but are thought unlikely to attend after palace officials insisted it was for working members of the Royal family only.

It remained unclear on Friday night why they had received an invitation for an occasion that Royal aides insisted they were not expected to attend. Sources close to them appeared baffled, while palace aides continued to insist that they were not invited and were not expected to show up.

US President Joe Biden and French President Emmanuel Macron will be among hundreds of heads of state who will be welcomed to London on the eve of Queen Elizabeth II’s funeral. Presidents and prime ministers from across the globe will arrive in the capital throughout the weekend alongside foreign royals, governors-general and ambassadors. As dusk falls on Sunday, they will be driven into the gates of Buckingham Palace before rubbing shoulders in the picture gallery and state apartments.

Despite the grandeur of their surroundings, the reception will be a muted affair, with guests asked to wear lounge suits or morning dress, with no hats or decorations. Guests will be greeted by Royals including the Prince and Princess of Wales, the Princess Royal and the Earl and Countess of Wessex. Drinks and canapes will be served.

The confusion over the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s attendance follows similarly mixed messaging over Prince Harry’s right to wear military uniform this week. It hints at a lack of communication between the London and California-based branches of the family as well as a lack of certainty over how exactly to deal with Harry and Meghan as grieving members of the Queen’s family.

[From The Telegraph]

King Charles III is a clown. I strongly suspect that – initially, at least – perhaps an invitation was extended, although probably not formally. You know these dumbasses speak in riddles, so there were probably feelers put out to see if Harry and Meghan were interested in attending. My guess is that Harry shut it down, because it’s all happening again. The palaces are briefing against them freely and viciously, and then the palaces still want to use the Sussexes’ star power to make the family look good. My thinking is that Harry said “nope” and now the Palace is trying to turn Harry’s refusal into yet another “look at us, punishing Harry and Meghan, we hate them” moment. And once again, the royal court looks like a whole-ass clownshow. As for “a lack of communication between the London and California-based branches of the family”… Harry and Meghan have been sitting in Windsor for more than a week. Charles knows their number.

Speaking of, Page Six claims that Harry and Meghan “received an invitation” to the reception earlier in the week and yet no one has called them to tell them they are uninvited. Sources claim the Sussexes learned of this story through the media. Funeral shambles.

    Disinvited would be more appropriate if they were actually extended an invite.

    • Well Wisher says:

      They couldn’t be uninvited unless they attended the function an guests. For example like ants at a picnic.
      It did not happen.
      The Sussexes are so over it.

      • Jan90067 says:

        Look what they did to Mary! She was invited to the funeral with Frederik, and now it’s an OOPS! Can’t come. He’s coming with your MIL, the Queen! Sorry toots!

        A TOTAL train wreck so far: on car crashing into another, heading for a grand pile up.

      • Duchcheese says:

        @Jan90067, whaaattt??? Oh my goodness, what a shambolic thing this Charles reign is going to be!!!!!! He hasn’t even been king for 2 weeks and this many fuckups? I can’t believe this!!! Honestly, I am shocked at how much they’re fucking this thing up so bad😲😲😲.
        And as for the Sussexes, I actually am with Kaiser, the Sussexes are way over this at this point to care one way or another. They’re just waiting for Monday to bury the queen and they’ll be outta there. At this point, anyone that even thinks saying “the Sussexes were snubbed by this and that, Charles, William, name whomever” is causing them any humiliation or embarrassment is just being delusional. The Sussexes stopped looking bad so long ago. Now, whatever the Windsors think they will do to humiliate or embarrass the Sussexes just ricochets right back to the Windsors. Way to go Charles3

      • JD says:

        Clearly Operation London Bridge has been planned by Mr. Bean all along.

      • Fifee says:

        The problem with invites to the funeral lies solely within the UK Foreign Office (FCDO). Anything this government touches turns to shi*e. The grey men of BP may well have some say but its as I said the FO that deals with the it.

      • Feeshalori says:

        Clearly London Bridge has fallen down.

      • Lucky Charm says:

        @ JD, at this point it looks more like it was planned by Monty Python than Mr. Bean lol

      • Where'sMyTiara says:

        So far we have:
        -H&M “uninvited”
        -Crown Princess Mary of Denmark “uninvited”
        -Disgraced & Exiled former King of Spain Juan Carlos: INVITED and his son King Felipe is NOT happy about it. Actually issued a statement about it! He’s been trying so hard to distance himself from his father’s reign in order to hang on to his own crown, and Charles the Turd and his shambolic Foreign Office invite him anyway because “well the Saudis are coming too (probably with more dodgy bags of money) so let’s just get the whole crime family together, wot?”

        I don’t know about y’all, but where I grew up, if someone gets invited to something by “accident” and they show up? We make room for them.

      • Lorelei says:

        @JD, your comment wins

    • ML says:

      In American English this meaning of uninvite is a synonym to disinvite. Both are okay. 🙂

      • jwoolman says:

        Disinvited and uninvited have different connotations, though, at least in US English. Disinvited suggests they were invited but then asked not to come or else they were specifically told not to come at all if they otherwise would have been expected to be invited (such as has happened to Mr. Trump at some funerals….). Uninvited can have those same meanings, but also can be a more neutral “just were never invited”, can just be as benign as they were limiting the number of people or only inviting close family etc. (synonym for “not invited”).

        So “disinvited ” has a much more negative tone in US English, while “uninvited” is often interpreted as just that the person didn’t receive an invitation in the first place because of constraints such as limits on the number of people able to be invited (for example, due to size limits or COVID concerns etc.). To be truly neutral, safer to just say they were not invited.

    • taris says:


      it’s been amazing to me to see so many, usually discerning, people buy into every crazy narrative that’s been thrown out this past week.
      here’s my (controversial?) take:

      •when the queen died, meghan was probably told not to go to balmoral – maybe by charles, maybe by some other royal family member, or a courtier even. i don’t actually think the “don’t come” was necessarily nasty, esp if it came from charles – i say that because charles, of all people, has no real incentive or gain in being invective towards meghan and/or harry, let alone in having it all over the papers at a time like this. remember when we used to agree on this site that charles was rational enough to not go after harry and meghan like that, and that 90%+ of the sussex hate came/comes from kensington? granted, charles has been a wreck all week along, but even he’s not this stupid

      •who even said the sussexes were invited in the first place? page six? (lol). scobie? (contrary to what the BM say, he does not have some exclusive insight into camp sussex; he gets necessary statements from the sussex spox *like any other non-BM reporter*, and i believe he actually guesses about sussex plans like half the time)

      we really shouldn’t take every single thing that comes from the BM as gospel, esp when it comes to the harry and meghan.
      i thought we all understood that.
      whenever we see leaks, we should ask ourselves who has more to gain from said leak AND WHO is doing the reporting, because we already know most of these ‘royal experts’ are full of shit and don’t actually have any ‘sources’ (e.g. the “peacemaker” narratives benefited kate, so we know that probably came from camp middleton, via their trusted tominey or nicholl).

      pay more attention to the richard kays and laceys who we know have real access to the palace, and are always pushing a royalist agenda at the bidding of the RF

      • Duchcheese says:

        Why wouldn’t Charles tell Meghan not to go to Balmoral? The courtiers told Meg not to go? Surely you are kidding with this, right? Charles is the pettiest of them all and I just laugh when people post how they think Charles is doing the most to repair the relationship between him and his son!! Charles hates being overshadowed, and it doesn’t matter who is overshadowing him. He hated Diana over shadowing him, he HATES it when the glamorous Sussexes overshadow him too. So, its not that farfetched to believe that Charles stopped Meghan from coming to Balmoral, that man is capable of anything. Plus, Charles has already owned the “Charles called his son and told him Meghan was not welcome” so can’t put this on anyone else now. And BP, CH and KP all brief the BM, every one of them, so whatever story is printed comes from them, period. They “disinvited/uninvited” the Sussexes and then chose to brief their media about it thinking they will embarrass the Sussexes. Now that it is embarrassing them instead, suddenly it never happened but was made up by the BM? Naaahhhhh, they put it out there thinking it would make the Sussexes look bad, just like the “Harry was refused to wear a uniform” etc. Once it reflected bad on the BRF, suddenly its pretzel twists.

      • Julie says:

        Oh yes. Richard Kay.

        The one that said Meghan should emulate Diana after her separation from Charles.

        By separating from Harry or dying.

      • Waitwhat? says:

        @Taris – *thank you*.

      • clarabelle says:

        Hear, hear. Thank you taris.

      • Concern Fae says:

        Well, like someone said about the Tr*mp crowd, the stupidest explanation is the likeliest one. So my bet is Harry was on an old list that included Andrew. Someone remembered to delete Andrew, because disgrace, but forgot that they had invented this BS category of “working royal” to exclude Andrew and that Harry got caught up in it and therefore had to be excluded from any event Andrew couldn’t attend. And so an invitation was sent to everyone on a list and then someone realized that Harry had been invited. They then uninvited him in the cruelest manner possible to cover for their mistake. AKA the best way to hide a mistake is to pretend you meant it.

        It’s the same situation as Harry not being able to bring Meghan to Balmoral because William left Kate behind. Can’t leave room for anyone to say Kate should have come.

        Just Miss Marpling this shit from every snobbish yet incompetent organization I’ve ever worked for.

      • BlueDot says:

        @Taris completely agree!

        None of these stories make Charles look good and any idiot can see that. If Charles is aware that the Oprah interview and all that’s been said since was damaging, then he knows they have supporters. He’s not deluded enough to think that the entire population of the UK, let alone the world wants to see them continually punished. He’s going to know that publicly telling Harry & Meghan they’re not welcome is also going to be damaging.

        So that leaves two possibilities I can think of. One is that most of the stories are made up by the press who have no real info and are just guessing, then creating their own stories to backtrack on their mistakes. Some might be coming from the lesser courtiers who also have no real inside info but are just taking pay checks for their best guesses.

        The second possibility is more unpleasant. Maybe someone is deliberately putting out these stories to stir the pot.

    • tarisai says:

      remember people: not every story in the BM should be accepted as FACT. most ‘sources’ are as real as unicorns, and those people will always find something to write about h&m.
      we should all know this by now.

      • Eurydice says:

        The issue is that, however false their stories, the BM are dictating what is “true.” There is no other narrative.

      • Duchcheese says:

        The thing is, we will take all these stories as truth until the BRF stops briefing their minions. The BRF themselves chose to blur all the lines between truth and fiction, so at this point they own every single story their media churn out, it’s that simple. You can’t pick and chose the stories that make them look good and say this is the only truth and chose those that make them look like d!ickheads and say, actually this was made up by the BM. From the day/moment they decided to start smearing Meghan they owned, they own, and they will forever own every single story put out by the BM, plain and simple.

      • taris says:

        @eurydice, not true. sometimes all it takes is calling BS on BS, it’s really not that hard.

      • taris says:

        i did NOT say only the stories that make h&m look good are true and vice versa. what i’m saying is we all know by now, surely, that between the BM and the RF is the sole intent of humiliating the sussexes.

        the stories about uniforms to holding hands to revoked invites, etc, are to get people (sussex haters and fans alike, as well as royalists and non-royal watchers) to perceive harry and meghan negatively. and when we just accept all the stories without even a shred of critical thinking (who’s the story likely from? for what purpose? doesn’t this actually make the RF look bad? etc) we’re, in effect, doing their bidding.

        and, btw, pointing out that a story makes no sense is simple. just go have a look at the comments section of the outlets that’ve been reporting on harry and meghan this week – both in the UK and beyond. you’ll find that even non-royal watchers are pointing out just how nonsensical the stories are getting.

        and, for the love of god – the BM do NOT get to dictate what’s ‘truth’. stop it with the defeatism. @duchesse

      • Saucy&Sassy says:

        taris, well, it was reported that they got a “formal” invitation, so make of that what you will. Scobie undoubtedly reported it because he thought it was true. He doesn’t play games like most of the rest of the bm. We also have the Mary of Denmark was uninvited, too, articles.

        Now we’re supposed to conclude that the “formal” invitation never existed, and that Mary was never invited, either?

        This is the brf’s problem IF this information is untrue. They use the press to disparage the Sussexes whenever they wish to; you can’t blame us if we believe there is some faction of that family briefing the press now. If they had done what they could to shut down all of the smears against the Sussexes at the beginning, we wouldn’t be in the spot now. We’re left with trying to figure out if it’s BP, CH, KP or the Mids who have run to the press.

        The bm needs the brf, too, not just the other way around. If the bm decide to undermine CIIIPO’s reign, what will that result in? The bm more than any others know that the Prince of Fails will be an even worse monarch. Why would they want to speed up that trainwreck?

      • taris says:

        so many words to make some point, i presume, but tbh i don’t know what point exactly you’re even making.

        all i’m asking, people, is a link to the report(s) saying the sussexes were invited written *before this weekend*, and noone’s done that.

        scobie is one of the few royal reporters that doesn’t make a living from abusing harry and meghan, so good for him. but i’m not treating everything he says as fact, unless it comes from a spox.

      • Eurydice says:

        @Taris – sure, we can each make the determination to believe or not believe, and we can write a rebuttal in a comment section – that’s easy. But it’s shouting into the wind compared to the assets behind the BM. Covering the royals is a billion dollar business and H&M are the current bread and butter with guaranteed clicks. Add to that that the RF seems unwilling/uninterested in countering the lies. So, who is the one telling the lies? And how can I insist that I know the truth when all I really know about H&M is what I’ve read in the media? It’s easy to pick a side, harder to actually know.

      • Saucy&Sassy says:

        taris, your response is interesting, because I thought I was clear. So, I’ll try this: Don’t use the media to spread smears and lies and then expect anyone to know which ones you spread and which ones the media are doing just because.

    • Jais says:

      The initial reporting that the Sussexes were invited came from the Telegraph. Not saying those sources can be trusted but am saying this is not something that initially came from page 6 or Scobie. Kaiser provided an excerpt from the Telegraph in the article above. Page 6 is now discussing the timeline of the whole controversy but the Telegraph is the one that originally reported, which is why Kaiser excerpted it.

      • taris says:

        i haven’t been able to find any article (from the telegraph or elsewhere) that reported that the sussexes were invited *dated earlier in the week* (which is when the invite was allegedly extended). all the outlets are only now, this weekend, reporting that they “had been invited” (after the fact).
        all i’m asking is: WHO, besides scobie, reported *before friday* that they were going to the thing? (scobie, btw, didn’t even mention getting his scoop from sources or the sussex spox in his tweet, just that “the sussexes are expected to attend”. huh?)

        i’m not being snarky here, just honestly trying to make sense of how these stories spread like wildfire when there’s so little basis for their veracity.
        the firm has been royally screwing up this week, it’s true, but some of this stuff seems to me like some bitchy courtier leaking garbage non-stories to try and make harry and meghan look bad.

      • Jais says:

        Hmmm, okay that’s true. This article excerpted is about the correction that it’s only for working royals but I genuinely thought that Victoria Ward was the first to write about the Sussexes being invited. Gah!

      • windyriver says:

        I don’t know what Omid originally reported, but the update yesterday on his Twitter states a Palace spokesperson again repeated that today’s reception was only for working royals, but declined to make “any further comment or guidance” on what happened in the first place. So, the Palace knows the story is out there. Since they decline to provide any further information or explanation, as far as I’m concerned, they own it, and own every bit of bad PR it’s been generating.

    • CocofromCanada says:

      He is is a petty little b lol

    • Carmen says:

      Oh please we know exactly where this is coming from. Harry and Meghan draw all eyes to them the moment they enter a room. They don’t have to say a word. Baldimort and Superb*tch can’t stand being upstaged yet again. End of story.

  2. Amie says:

    King Chuck is really proving what Diana said about him not being up to the task of being King. What a stupid vile petty asshat.

    • Mslove says:

      This is concerning. If King Chuck is unable to king, Bill will be the new shadow king.

    • Chic says:

      Harry delayed the book to next year but at this point, KC3 and Wills are giving tons of material for new chapters. If the book is not family bashing, again, KC3 is giving Harry cause to rethink his original approach. This past week is giving sequel. Same for the crown

      • Snuffles says:


        There has been no credible source to confirm a delay. It all speculation.

      • Rapunzel says:

        Chic- “Harry delayed the book to next year”?
        That has not been confirmed at all. And is quite unlikely to happen. Harry has no say in release date. That’s the publisher’s doing.

      • Lexistential says:

        Don’t believe The Telegraph. They make up stuff and run leaks.

      • Chic says:

        @Snuffles.. I should have been more careful. In any event, the publisher might want to inquire about a delay for additional chapters.

      • Debbie says:

        I’m kind of with @Snuffles on this one. The delay of the book story was released by the same BM which has been weirdly obsessed with Harry’s book all year long. The story was not released by Harry himself or by his publishers, who are very unlikely to inform the irrelevant British media about their plans (there, I said it). If it turns out that way, so be it, but it’s not because they knew in advance when the book would be released.

    • Lucky Charm says:

      He’s had 70 YEARS to watch and learn and practice and train to be King and he’s messed it up this badly already, in just over a week! SMDH….

      • Saucy&Sassy says:

        Lucky Charm, it’s time for the members of the brf to speak for themselves instead of through courtiers. It’s time for them to go on the record. If they had, there wouldn’t be this broohaha. I still am skeptical and think what was reported was true. Perhaps we should not believe they’ve been disinvited. If only one of the articles is true, don’t we get to choose which one to believe?

        The bm is certainly doing its utmost to destroy the UK’s reputation globally. What’s that about?

    • ThatsNotOkay says:

      The Sussexes were invited early in the week so “desirable” people across the world would be sure to show up, then they were disinvited so Charles, Camilla, William, and Kate could have the spotlight to themselves. Users and abusers.

      • Gabby says:

        A bait-and-switch on the headliner? I hadn’t thought of that but it makes sense. The attendees likely would much rather have a cocktail/canape/conversation with Harry than with anyone else in that “family”.

        I am saddened that Harry won’t get to benefit from the event. But any one of those leaders would probably take a phone call from him any day. Especially Jamaica and Antigua/Barbuda, hheheheheheh.

      • SugarHere says:

        I strongly believe that Charles invited the Sussex pair. Then, Camilla must have told him something like: “Imagine them making more connections than they already have. What’s next, Meghan being invited overseas by heads of states. God forbid.” And in a matter of minutes, they were uninvited the English way, which sounds like “So awfully sorry. Feeling terrible, here. There’s been a mix up in the virtual cardboard invitations. That bloody so and so has been having trouble concentrating Lately.”

      • Christine says:

        This. One trillion percent this. It would be a big bummer for Kitty, having to face the Bidens with extremely competent Meghan for live contrast.

        She and Harry would make everyone else look lazy and stupid.

      • tegdirb says:

        I hope Biden cropdusts the Gruesome Foursome for their treatment of H&M. They’d more than deserve it.

  3. Laura-Lee MacDonald says:

    Canadian news outlets are full to the brim with stories about the “precision” of the planning and “dignified” air of it all. I just laugh at those headlines.

    • Nic919 says:

      In a way it’s good that CBC is ignoring most of the British tabloid nonsense, but yes it’s not precise when this nonsense happens or when crown princess Mary is disinvited to the funeral.

      The courtiers are a mess and need to be turfed. They are not doing their jobs properly.

      • Sue E Generis says:

        They also invited the disgraced former king of Spain. His son, the current king, had to let them know his father would not be attending (I think the father is now a fugitive from justice?)

      • Eurydice says:

        @Sue E Generis – Juan Carlos was supposed to return to Spain back in May sometime. The investigations against him were dropped earlier this year. I don’t know if he went back just for a visit or if he’s still there.

      • Debbie says:

        Then again, this is Prince Andrew’s family. Do you really think they were troubled by the “disgraced” part? Come on now. I’ll bet you a suitcase filled with cash that they knew of the Spanish former king’s legal problems and said, “So, what time will you be here?”

    • Deeanna says:

      The disgraced former King of Spain did indeed show up, along with his long suffering wife. In addition, his son, the present King and his wife arrived separately.

  4. Div says:

    I’ve said this before, but Harry’s relationship with his family is like an abused wife with her abusive husband, but the type of abused wife who has options to get out (money and security) but keeps going back.

    He’s a victim (Meghan is even more of the BRF), but in the past he’s occasionally given them ‘outs’ in his interviews, etc…Oh, my family is scared of the media, etc. And he keeps reaching out, like the Lillibet name, despite the Queen protecting Andrew from the press but not him and Meghan.

    I really hope this (plus the uniform) debacle is the final straw though for him and he finally walks away. I am sympathetic to him-and I hope this doesn’t get deleted because posts that are sometimes a bit critical are-and he is a victim, but he needs to stop giving the racist a-holes who tormented his mother and his wife fourth, fifth, and sixth chances. Someone said it was victim blaming when I pointed this out, but there does come a point, much like an abused wife who has options to get out and be safe and have money but does not, when Harry has to look at himself and realize he’s making a bad choice giving them the millionth chance. He’s not only giving them a chance to hurt him yet again, but hurt his wife and his child. They aren’t going to change, and it feels like he needs to just accept that and move on, instead of constantly subjecting himself, his wife, and his child to their abuse.

    • Chloe says:

      He is not giving them chances. Harry just understands optics. And he’s giving the royals no opportunity to claim that he disrespected the monarchy or the queen by not showing up. Can you imagine the abuse he and meghan would face if he didn’t go to the funeral? Ofcourse harry was always going to be there when the queen passes. He made it clear that they had a good relationship, thats not making excuses. Let’s not forget that we are simply outsiders.

      And if anything, this week has further exposed the royals because i haven’t seen this much support for harry and meghan in a long time. On social media that is.
      Do you really think that invite and then rescinding it is a good look on King Charles? It is not. It looks incredibly petty especially since harry has been nothing but respectful this week.

      • Seaflower says:

        @chloe “And if anything, this week has further exposed the royals because i haven’t seen this much support for harry and meghan in a long time. On social media that is.”.

        Yes I’m seeing very serious well respected people who normally don’t pay attention to the royals openly talk on twitter about how horrendous Chuck and co are treating H&M

      • Maxine Branch says:

        @Chloe Ditto, you expressed what I feel as well. On another note. If there was an invite to the State Dinner, Harry turned them down, pretty much as he did for the after parties for the Jubilee. Harry is comporting himself with dignity and doing what must be done to honor his grandmother. Everything else surrounding this couple is just noise.

        I would not be surprised to see Harry return the Duke and Duchess title back to the crown since his grandmother is dead and she honored him and his wife with it.

      • Duchcheese says:

        @Maxine, Harry and Meghan already said it’s not up to them to deny their children of anything that’s rightfully theirs by birth. The “duke” title is no longer only Harry’s. Once Archie was born, that title ceased to belong to Harry alone but now it’s for Archie and Lili too. Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex, Earl of Dumbarton and Baron Kilkeel, can’t just renounce those titles because he feels wronged or whatever, they’re no longer only his to give back, they’re for his kids too. This is the same thing as prince and princess title. He couldn’t just say “oh don’t give the kids these titles etc” because you treated me and my wife this or that way. The kids will decide once they become of age whether to use or not use their titles, but it’s not up to the parents to deny the kids of what’s rightfully theirs.

      • Renae says:

        I’m withholding opinion on Harry’s willingness to take abuse until I see 1) do they leave immediately after the funeral or stay the additional 7days and 2) does he subject himself and Meghan to the abuse that will be thrown at the Coronation.
        Personally, I don’t think they should go to Charlie’s crowning, but that’s just me. I would think if nothing else, watching Cowzilla being crowned when it should habe been Diana would make me turn down any invite

    • Shawna says:

      The end of this trip would be a natural place to draw a line in the sand and stop dealing with them. If he’s really only been playing nice for the Queen, we’ll know in the coming months.

      • Tate says:

        Agree. I hope they never have to go back and deal with these vile people again.

      • Amy Too says:

        I agree. Many people who go no contact with their parents and siblings struggle with whether or not to show up for the funerals of extended relatives that they have no issues with. They go, they try to avoid the people they’re no contact with as best as possible, and they just try to get through it. I’m not surprised that Harry has chosen to attend the Queen’s funeral and all the rigmarole surrounding it. She was his grandmother, but she’s also the Queen of his home country, she was his “boss” in the royal family, and she was his Commander in Chief. I also think he and Meghan want to be seen to be participating as a way to underscore that they had no problems with the Queen, they loved and respected her, she did not treat them poorly, she was not the racist, etc.

        I do hope though that he stays away from “royal” stuff and his father and brother after this though. It’s hard to go no contact, and people often do waffle back and forth hoping that *this time* things will be different, *this time* their relative means it when they apologize or say they’re going to treat them better, but I’ve never heard of someone who didn’t feel so much better long term after going NC. You can’t heal fully from trauma that is still actively being inflicted on you.

        I think Harry also might struggle with questions like “Why should I be denied my birthright just because my family is toxic? Is it right for me to make these sorts of huge decisions for my children on their behalf? Why shouldn’t my wife be able to be addressed by her rightful title just because my family sucks?” Because things like his HRH Prince status and place in the line of succession aren’t really “gifts” or “favors” that his family gave him in exchange for playing nice, they’re who he is, they’re his just for being born who he was. He is owed those things automatically because of who *he* is. I can see how it’s all very complicated for him.

      • Shawna says:

        AmyToo: Perhaps he’ll be able to conclude that his birthright is connected closely to that toxicity. Is it possible to separate them?

      • lucy2 says:

        I agree, I think a lot of it was for her, and so his kids could meet her, and I too hope he is DONE now.

    • equality says:

      I think more important than money in escaping an abusive situation is counseling and realizing your own self worth. It’s different when it’s your birth family doing the abusing also. PH’s situation is unique though so perhaps he’s walking a fine line with trying to support those family members who are supportive and avoid others. And, of course, it’s playing out far more publicly than it would for anybody else. He is the one who knows how it is behind the scenes and has a better handle on what is being done just in the media.

      • Soporificat says:

        “more important than money in escaping an abusive situation is counseling and realizing your own self worth. It’s different when it’s your birth family doing the abusing also.”

        YES! Exactly this. If it is your own parents it gets in deep in a way that even the most clever abuser can’t replicate in an adult. It can take many, many iterations of fighting back and learning who you really are before you can get clear enough to effectively handle these types of gaslighters.

        This family is so horrible. Every time I read about them I cringe in horror and second hand embarrassment because they are so obviously mentally disturbed. The ongoing need to shame and humiliate others, and the obvious satisfaction that it gives them is really sick.

        Most of the members of this family are less than mediocre, in every way, and they certainly aren’t worth all the money and resources that they get from British citizens.

      • Christine says:

        Harry and Meghan look like the only adults in the room, at this point. I didn’t have the imagination when the Queen died that we all needed, I did not think it was possible for King Chuck to get so many things absolutely wrong, barely a week after her death, but wow.

        The incompetence speaks for itself. Harry and Meghan will peace out after the funeral, fingers crossed.

    • MsIam says:

      He’s not giving them chance after chance. If his grandmother hadn’t died, he and Meghan would be home in California right now. And he has made no attempt to reach out to his brother except for what has been required for the funeral. I think that there was some communication with Charles during the Jubbly visit, but after this shit show that’s probably done too.

      • BothSidesNow says:

        @ MsIam, I agree. Harry has not made any attempts at reconciliation with regards to his father OR especially his vile, petty and disgusting brother.

        Harry, and Meghan, when they have traveled to Britain have only done so to visit QEII solely. Or with the Jubbly did so as they were invited privately by his grandmother.

        Harry is making his feelings known, without ANY doubt, that he has washed his hands of the remaining family members. IF Harry and Meghan visit Britain in the future which they are FREE to do as any other person, they will remain far away from his family and the rest of the gutter trash in Britain. No one has the right to dictate their ability to visit Britain either as it is still the home of his childhood and a majority of his life.

      • Div says:

        He absolutely is imo. There was no need to do the walkabout with the Cambridges…that just let them spin to the media about how ‘gracious’ they were to invite Harry (ick). There was no need for the family to go to the Jubbly, but if they did there was no need to literally agree to be shunted in a corner. They could have seen her privately.

        The thing it is not just him being hurt by his family’s behavior-it’s his wife and child. He needs to work on his self worth, as someone said, and realize he is better than them and he doesn’t need their ‘love.’.

      • Taehyung's Noona says:

        There is a practical reason for remaining in the fold: Archewell. Much of the prestige of their foundation is because of their titles and association with the British monarchy.

        I’m sure there are very wealthy people who want that connection to history and power. The National Cathedral is having a memorial for the QEII and all former presidents are invited. I find that absurd, but the elite and wealthy love the British monarchy.

      • kirk says:

        Taehyung’s Noona – do NOT agree. People milking their titles are Chuck, Willy and sideparts. The prestige of H-M philanthropic efforts is because they are so genuine and so good at what they’re doing. FYI this American watched Meghan prior to ever learning she was involved with Harry. After she started up with him, I tried to find out about BRF because of Harry and quickly became disgusted with the lot of them, except for Harry.

      • ABritGuest says:

        If Harry hadn’t gone to the jubbly can you imagine how he might have felt about missing opportunity to introduce Lili to Elizabeth? Let alone what the headlines would have been. As outsiders we may feel we know better but that was an example of fans getting upset about their attendance when it turns out their public appearances at the jubbly was very limited & not going would have been much worse.

        And I think it was smart to keep it low key & limit their public appearances. I think that was their choice as Harry already said his priority was just introducing his kids to his grandmother. In relation to visiting privately with the kids his security case is still outstanding so it made sense to visit with the whole family during the jubbly when he had guaranteed uk police protection as it was a royal event.

        In terms of the walkabout with William & Kate, you know it would have leaked to the press if they had refused invite to meet well wishers & I get the sense Harry is in England to honour his grandmother & was going to go with wherever to make her home going smooth. Many people with complicated families will just go along to get along.

        I would love if Harry & Meghan didn’t go to Charles’ coronation. But I’m conscious as a Brit that this would be regarded as a big insult if the king’s son didn’t go if he was invited. He would literally have his patriotism questioned and as someone who proudly fought for Britain sure that isn’t what he would want.

        I don’t envy them at all for their horrid families & my thoughts are with them

    • N. says:

      Harry will probably walk away after the queen’s funeral. Why would he do it now, in the midst of it all? He’d be accused of pathological drama, trying to divert attention to himself and Meghan while the world is mourning the Queen. I don’t think that’s what he & Meghan are about at all, as much as the press & BRF keep trying to project it.

      • Christine says:

        Agreed. The headlines write themselves, “Disrespectful Harry and Meghan deliver a final insult to QEII, refusing to attend her funeral”. Somewhere in the text would be the sentence, “why don’t they just spit on her grave and be done with it?”

        They couldn’t have handled themselves better. They have just shown up, been respectful, and let these snakes out themselves to the entire planet. It’s delicious.

    • Eurydice says:

      I think Harry has been consistent in embracing his new life. He’s always said how much he loved his grandparents, so it’s not victim behavior to honor them. OTOH, we haven’t seen Harry make any attempts to specifically visit Charles or William – just meetings that were coincidental.

      This is all painful right now, but H&M will continue their lives and work when they get back to California. Harry has his book, Meghan her podcast, all the charitable endeavors, work with corporations, etc. And Charles can continue living in terror over whatever is in the memoir.

    • Queen Meghan’s Hand says:


      I know the Sussex PR is that “Harry saved his family by making the decision to leave,” but that is not the truth. Harry never wanted to leave. Harry was forced to leave by The Queen and The Prince Regent. Half-in/Half-out is a misnomer of their plan. Despite everything, despite his wife being suicidal during her pregnancy, Harry wanted to stay. And Meghan if was not nearly as socially connected and savvy as she is, Harry would have had his family up Schitt’s Creek.

      Harry keeps putting them in situations where his wife (and he) will be emotionally abused by his family—and for what and for whom? Duty? The Queen? The King? If it’s Duty: The Queen stripped you of your military honors, dude. Your duty was taken from you. The Queen told you a combat veteran, a military officer for 10 active years, founder of the Invictus Games, that you cannot wear your uniform for the rest of your life. I mean…!!! And The King reinforces that decision by initially making an exception for his pedophile brother for whatever dumb ceremony. Harry, what are you doing?

      I understand Harry still wants to assert his and his children’s place within the line of succession, wants his family respected as royals, but that will never, ever happen. And if he wants a long life with his wife, he needs to open his eyes to reality. Meghan should not be put in situations that are emotionally abusive or triggering and put her at physical risk because he wants to be a Prince and her to be a Princess. The walkabout?! Y’all let’s talk about The Walkabout. Meghan was in the car with her tormentors and for what?! She had to present herself to a public that may have been physically hostile. With a woman who was openly hostile to her. She was terrified. And for what?! For your brother’s PR?

      Let’s compare: Is Meghan still rushing to her father’s bedside every time he feigns a health problem? No. Is Meghan attending his events, ringing him up to ask him to stop talking about her? No. Because Meghan understands that he would rather make money and be on tv than protect her. She gave him an ultimatum and her father made his choice. Is her situation that different from Harry’s? I don’t think so and yet, there they are.

      Sussex Squad has to accept that this is not Harry’s last straw. I fear there will be no last straw for the Duke of Sussex.

      • SAS says:

        @QMH, yes I’ve always seen the families as equally dysfunctional and had the dark thought to myself this week “geez imagine the nastiness they’re going to have to endure for Thomas Markle’s funeral” but you’re right that Meghan seems to have drawn much stronger boundaries with those assholes, so even if they did attend, there’s no way they would be bending backwards and jumping through hoops like the royal family have them doing here.

      • Sunday says:

        It’s a false equivalency. Thomas Markle has absolutely zero power in this world. The only reason he has a platform is because the firm and the british media gave him one. Harry’s family is a completely different story. They are dangerous and it would be foolish to think otherwise. What we’ve seen is a one-sided attack from the firm on Harry and Meghan; what you’re advocating for would be open warfare, and while that might be more cathartic for public spectators (who have no real clue about the inner machinations of the family or the firm), it would be potentially catastrophic for Harry and Meghan.

        Offering half-in was a negotiation tactic – better to make the firm kick them out then to thumb their nose at the queen. Being a part of the jubilee and the funeral has only increased the awareness and sympathy from the general public towards Harry and Meghan and the dignity they continue to show in the face of belligerent attacks from the media and Charles. This has only helped the Sussexes and only hurt the firm, and the best part for Harry and Meghan is that all of this damage has been sustained by the firm’s own hand. Post-funeral we very well may see Harry burn all remaining bridges, but it will land in a completely shifted media environment than if he had been “disrespectful” (however warranted) from the get-go.

        Harry and Meghan are playing the long game, and they’re winning.

      • QuiteContrary says:

        Except Harry said even before he met Meghan that he hated the BM and the suffocating nature of Royal life.
        I think he’s over all this.

      • Taehyung's Noona says:

        M & H are dealing with these people much like Civil Rights activists, which is similar to Obama’s races against Hilary and Romney. Take the high road, watch the bigotry unfold, and sway public opinion.

        I am not saying Hilary’s campaign was as racist as Romney’s, but there was a lot of nastiness from her supporters.

    • Sunday says:

      Using your own analogy, someone leaving an abusive spouse would also have to be very careful, especially if said spouse was violent. Make no mistake, the British royal family is dangerous. Stupid, bumbling, and largely incompetent, sure, but absolutely dangerous and cruel. Harry and Meghan just “washing their hands” of them and living their own lives does not mean that they will ever be left alone. They were largely silent for over a year and the media never stopped the drum beat of abuse aimed at them. Harry knows better than anyone exactly what the firm is capable of, and will never compromise on the security of his wife and children.

      Considering the past week, what I’ve seen is a man who has repeatedly separated his grandmother from his condemnations of the rest of the family and institution honoring her life and paying his respects. Harry actually knows what happened behind the scenes; we’re just speculating. I trust what he’s said, and he said the queen was great but he questioned the people around her. Rather than thinking we know better than he does about his own family, I look at a man (and wife) who have acted with dignity, respect, and intelligence in the face of hatred, abuse, and stupidity, and I trust them to do the right thing for themselves and their children, even if we as the outside public can’t see the full picture just yet.

      • Dilettantet says:

        @ Sunday very astute comments.

      • Christine says:

        Agreed. Also, I don’t think there is a chance Meghan and Harry aren’t making all of these decisions together, so I’m not sure why Harry is getting all of this heat like he is a domineering husband who makes all the decisions. What about Meghan says, “Yes, I am a doormat.”?

      • kirk says:

        Sunday – Very perceptive.

    • WiththeAmerican says:

      I take your point but the analogy is upsetting. Abused women who have “resources” are just as mentally jacked around as those without resources, and in reality the big reason why women don’t leave is fear of what will happen to them when they try.

      Men with resources (the kinds these women are married to) have connections and are believed more in court and among police. So these women are just as isolated, but for different reasons.

      As for Harry, I can see your POV. From his POV, I imagine he knows what would happen to them in global media if they didn’t show up. In a way, showing up is the best thing for their brand and for their own safety, frankly.

      But I do agree with you that he seems unable to view the entire institution for what it is. He lost his mom at a young age and I think he clung to the queen as the only person who seemed to care for him. No doubt he has given up a lot and simply isn’t prepared to acknowledge that she allowed this abuse to happen.

      • Sunday says:

        Many have said that the queen “allowed the abuse to happen” but we don’t actually know that, do we? All we know is that Harry and Meghan have been consistent in praising the queen and directing their ire towards the institution at large and other family members. I trust Harry and Meghan to know what is best for Harry and Meghan. The last time they visited the queen Harry made a point to question the people around her. What proof do we have that she was actually mentally astute enough to be in charge of what tea to drink that afternoon, let alone make decisions about specific media statements or royal protections? It would hardly be the first time a 96 year old woman was manipulated by the people around her, let alone people who benefit enormously from her death.

        We’ve all largely agreed that Charles has had a “soft regency” in place for some time, so why wouldn’t that extend to dealings with Andrew, as well as Harry and Meghan? If anything, the decisions under Charles for this funeral sh*tshow have been entirely consistent with the decisions made before the queen passed – Andrew has been treated with kid gloves and punished only in the face of public outcry and even then only minimally, while Harry and Meghan are abused at every turn whenever possible. If someone different was in charge now, wouldn’t the decisions being made differ even in the slightest? It’s exactly the same, because IMO the same people are pulling the strings now as they were before.

        I’m not saying the queen was perfect and blameless in everything, but to say that she allowed the abuse is to ignore everything Harry and Meghan have said and blame the one person they’ve consistently supported for the actions of everyone else, who they themselves have repeatedly pointed the finger at.

      • Div says:


        Fair enough. I think my point was less him showing up to the funeral-I completely understand that-and participating in several events around the funeral…so much as him doing the walkabout with the Cambridges and going to the Jubbly.

        And while we don’t know the Queen, she made sure to be photographed with Andrew smiling the day after Epstein & is widely believed by many journos to have protected him from the press. Yes, he is her child, but she could have done 1/100th of that of Meghan. It’s not hard to believe the abuse would have been much less severe if the Queen had gone after the Daily Fail or set up one or two photo ops with Meghan riding, as she has done for others.

      • WiththeAmerican says:

        @div yes, I agree re the queen. She had her ways of showing support when it mattered to her. That’s what was missing re Meghan and Harry. Thanks for hearing my point re women with means who are abused.

        @Sunday that’s a good point re Charles soft monarchy, that was obvious for a while. But I do think the Queen could have done more to show support. It would be impossible for Harry to not have diminished expectations of family love from his experiences, so I see a man who elevates a show of kindness from her into more than it might mean in the larger context of what she had the power to do.

        But certainly, Charles should have shown his support Re security and he could be doing a lot more now and could have been doing it before.

        We all saw how Kate and Cam got PR protection, but Meghan and Harry did not.

      • Sunday says:

        @Div But once again do we know that she herself decided to stage it knowing the implications of what was happening at the time, or did Andrew take advantage of her to stage it? I mean, Kate was just photographed touching a Black person! Does that mean she’s not a racist a-h*le? The queen wasn’t the one setting up those photo ops anyway, it was her staff. Remember when Harry said he had an appointment to meet with her pre-Sussexit and then Edward Young (who was installed by Andrew and Charles) said she was busy and it was cancelled? To me, that indicates she was trying to be there and it was blocked once they found out.

        Yes, Andrew has been protected in the press and Harry and Meghan obviously haven’t, but I guess my point is that nothing proves it was the queen making these decisions, and everything Harry and Meghan have said seems to indicate otherwise. British “journalists” making bank off of leaks from the firm aren’t going to undercut their sources and say the queen is mentally out to lunch.

        I think Andrew’s press protection is less to do with the queen and more to do with threats to Charles. Charles has been linked to multiple documented pedophiles, and Newsweek reported that Charles gave Andrew a £9 million dollar loan to help with the payout. Also, Margaret’s son was also in Epstein’s book – the same man that Charles put in charge of the Prince’s Trust. Charles’ closet is chock-full of skeletons, and Andrew is exactly the kind of person who can and would use that to his advantage.

      • BeanieBean says:

        Women are in the most danger when they leave their abusers. It’s not an appropriate analogy.

      • RoyalBlue says:

        Thank you @Sunday, for your calm and logical explanation. I like that you took the approach of empathy for the Sussexes, trusting their knowledge of and experience in the situation.

        I agree with all you have said.

    • Sue E Generis says:

      This is definitely victim blaming. And a failure to truly grasp the psychology of abuse. The damage to the psyche from abuse and the way it affects thought processes makes it an overwhelming task to think rationally. On top of that, you are not Harry. Every individual is different. We have no idea how he feels and what drives him.

      I am sad for him that the deep wound of his family’s rejection is something he obviously struggles with. But I could never criticize him for whatever actions he takes to try to deal with it.

      • Saucy&Sassy says:

        Sue E Generis, what I keep thinking of is that Harry wasn’t just in the military, that’s part of who he is. He’s an honorable man. Do I think he will go to the coronation, well, I guess we’ll find out. I think he & Meghan will go? Why? Because who is the commander in chief now? That’s something that Harry will need to deal with.

        I believe that Harry wants to secure his children’s birthrights. We can’t forget that he is proud of who he is, and part of who he is happens to be a Prince of the realm. That is a fact. How he chooses to honor that is his to decide and for others to respect.

      • windyriver says:

        With the deaths, first of Philip, and now TQ, a major life chapter has closed for Harry. With that strong tie gone, once they’re back in CA and the dust settles, he and Meghan may have very different ideas about what they want going forward for themselves and their children. He definitely knows now, if he didn’t already, exactly what to expect from Charles, and Will, and apart from Eugenie, who has herself moved away with her own family, he doesn’t appear to have significant ties with other family members. I’m glad he was able to be present for the important events surrounding TQ’s funeral arrangements (and able to bypass being included in the weekend’s diplomatic gatherings) – that’s what would be important to me – and happy too the world got to see for themselves and in real time examples of how badly they’ve been treated, all along.

They knew that some dignitaries would return home impressed with the Sussex’s and wanting to work with them! So they uninvited them in a cowardly jealous move. Yet, they want to give the appearance of stately grandeur, and the emphasis being on grieving for TQ, not on punishing Harry and Meghan for being stars. This move came after the international media was filled with pictures of Harry in his uniform! That was only the big story because KC3 made it the story with his bumbling. Idiots!

      • lucy2 says:

        This exactly. They know that both H&M are comfortable and confident around world leaders, and would be engaging and interesting to talk to. The rest of the BRF, not so much. They don’t want to be outshone.

      • Saucy&Sassy says:

      • lemontwist says:

        I don’t really think that would happen lol, someone just mentioned it above and it was a nice mental picture, hence it’s a ‘pipe dream’.

        Given all the public shenanigans & animosity towards H&M from the BRF it would be waaaay too much of a political statement on the Bidens’ behalf to carpool home with the Sussexes.

      In The Cut interview, Meghan indicated that when they were there for the Jubilee they packed up all of their remaining belongings. I don’t think they are coming back either. We will know for sure if they don’t renew the lease.

      • Amy Bee says:

        @Snuffles: Even if Harry and Meghan wanted to, I suspect Charles is not going to allow them to renew the lease on Frogmore.

      • Snuffles says:


        Good point. You’re probably right. It was probably the Queen that allowed them to keep it as long as they did.

      • BothSidesNow says:

        I made this declaration many days ago, though I included that H&M must be reimbursed for the millions of pounds that they paid for the renovation as well. KC will not renew their lease as it’s apparent he has no interest or intention of being a supportive or loving father to them. All of his olive branches have been PR stunts, with clearly no genuine affection involved.

      • ThatsNotOkay says:

        Which makes it all the more imperative that they have adequate security when they do return to England, because they won’t be staying on Windsor property and automatically protected because of it.

      • Jais says:

        If Charles’ ever chooses not to renew the lease and the security situation is not sorted, he is effectively exiling the Sussexes. Would not put it past him at this point.

      • RoyalBlue says:

        @Amy, if you said two weeks ago Charles would not renew the lease, I would not believe you, but seeing how vindictive and spiteful he and the men in Grey have been this past week, I totally agree with you.

      • PrincessK says:

        But Harry has already renewed the lease.

  8. Digital Unicorn says:

    This is not a good look for Chuck – to me it reads that he may have wanted them there and then aides (read KP) kicked off about it, hence why they were disinvited.

    I think we can all see who looks and behaves better when the Sussex’s are not in the same space as them.

    It also shows that the family can’t even stop b!tching at each other for a few weeks to bury the Monarch. Chuck, you have failed to unite the family – you need to sort out your brother, eldest son and his awful wife.

    • Seraphina says:

      So on point with all you said. He can’t even unites his family and be magnanimous in this time – how the heck can he lead as sovereign.

      And one would think they would all see that time is short and they too will die so why not bury the hatchet – but they would rather bury the hatchet in one another.

    • Babz says:

      Remember that play, King Charles the Third? It was a British production, and showed on PBS here in the States. Whoever wrote it must be psychic, because he nailed that family perfectly. This was back in the aughts, too, and well before Game of Thrones. Kate’s character was particularly perfect – scheming, conniving, cold, manipulative, whispering in William’s ear that he needed to usurp the throne from his father. Harry was the free spirit, in love with a woman of color, if I remember. That entire scenario has come to pass, almost to a T, and no one figured it out. I’d love to know if the writer actually knew some really good tea when he wrote it!

      • Sid says:

        Babz I have been referencing the King Charles III play and film so much since QEII’s death! I originally watched it way back because notasugar and a few other commenters mentioned it and how it seeemed like the writers must have had inside info. As you said, it is wild how the way everyone is portrayed in the play is exactly how we are seeing them behave in real life, now that the masks have fallen off.

  9. Seaflower says:

    Chuck and William run a classless, vile, clown show.

    On top of this, apparently Crown Princess Mary has been uninvited to the funeral because only 2 per country, but Spain is having 4, Norway are having 3…

    Vindictive amateur hour.

    • SAS says:

      What?! This invite list stuff is garbage! In Australia, we’ve been told that our highest profile Victoria’s Cross recipient has been invited. The same dude who’s been credibly accused of WAR CRIMES in Afghanistan. Like I said, garbage. CP Mary should be happy to put her feet up I say.

    • Draadje says:

      The Netherlands is also bringing 3.
      HOW do you uninvite someone from the Commonwealth who is also the crown princess of a friendly nation? And all of these activities are supposed to have been prepped and planned for years in advance? Pffttt.

    • BothSidesNow says:

      @ Seaflower, that is unacceptable. WHAT is KCIII doing????? This will certainly not look well to anyone but especially in Denmark. What is he thinking??? This will not bode well for him.

      I wouldn’t at all be surprised at all actually, if Prince of Wailing has been instrumental in these “disinvites”, his personal vendetta being carried out for him. We all know him to be a petty person, as he probably insisted that his father revoke all of these invitations.

      KCII has given the world what and how he intends to rule and he looks like an incompetent sovereign and his mother hasn’t even been buried yet.

      • ThatsNotOkay says:

        He’s a sniveling, indecisive waffler. Not fit for a king-sized bed let along king of England.

    • MerlinsMom1018 says:

      @ Seaflower
      Kate can’t be having CP Mary show her up once again, now can she?
      Is Queen Letizia going? She’ll pull attention from Kate without even trying, so that would also be unacceptable

      • Giddy says:

        Very interesting! So Kate was so worried about not being the focus of the media that she made sure that neither CP Mary or Meghan would be there? That makes perfect sense. But she can’t touch Queen Letizia who will be her usual perfectly turned out self. HA!

      • Laura D says:

        @Giddy – could you imagine Meghan chatting to Queen Letizia in Spanish? Wow, I can see both the QC and the FQC having complete meltdowns over that one. Especially, as both Queen Letiza and Meghan are intelligent women who held down jobs before they married into royalty. 😉

        In fact, those two are so bitter and twisted, I would fully expect a “Meghan made Queen Letiza cry” in the Fail the next morning! 😆

      • Babz says:

        At the Garter ceremony several years back, Kate was disrespectful to Queen Letizia, either turning her back on her, or ignoring her. There were photos of her chatting away with Sophie – who, of course, was snuggled right in there – and not paying attention to Queen Letizia, who was also right there. I remember articles about it, and criticism, but not all the details. I think I also remember that Sophie and Kate were both in cream, with those ubiquitous nude heels with the platform under the front of the shoe. Kate wore them ad nauseam, so Sophie must have bought some, too. What…did they call each other to compare wardrobe choices, like tween girls?? That unholy alliance seems to have gone a long way back, even before the Commonwealth service. 🙄

      • Seaflower says:

        @MerlinsMom1018 I thought the same re Mary being disinvited. Letizia not going is more difficult, she is Queen, Mary is “only” Crown Princess.

        We’ve seen time and time again how short sight Chuckles, Willnot and Kannot are – this will come back to bite them when they want (need) to go to any of the European countries. The royals there will be “unavailable”.

    • Dynastysurf says:

      The countries who have more than two people attending are countries where the previous monarch abdicated rather than dying on the throne. Mary never had the throne. Her husband is only going because his father is already dead, otherwise it would be Margrethe and Prince Henrik.

      • Saucy&Sassy says:

        Dynastysurf, do you think the rest of the world appreciates that distinction?

      • Bird says:

        What a ridiculous explanation. Sounds like they made it up to try to justify their stupidity. I like that the disinvite was first published in Danish media. I’m sure PC and BRF were hoping it would be unnoticed. I think it was purposely exposed by Danish RF and media. Unbelievable.

  10. equality says:

    Hopefully H&M are keeping all receipts in a special file. What about the Queen’s cousins? Why do they get so little mention in all this? Are they the only ones actually too grief-stricken to put on all the public displays or is KC already putting them on notice like his staff?

    • BothSidesNow says:

      They were probably disinvited as well…..bring in the 🤡🤡🤡🤡!

    • Saucy&Sassy says:

      equality, if reports were correct, they were formally invited. There’s probably an invitation that they’re hanging onto and putting with the rest of their receipts.

      I find it interesting today that there are posts here that suddenly everything is the bm’s fault–particularly Omid Scobie. Now, if I was a skeptical person, I would assume someone has an agenda.

      • Jais says:

        Right, there’s a good chance there is a formal invitation somewhere. The fact that no royal reporter has tried to argue against the fact that they were originally invited suggests that might be the case. Sure, people on social media have tried to say they were never invited in the first place but no one has gone on record to say that from what I can tell. Royal reporters for tabloids play fast and loose but they don’t want egg on their faces if there is an actual receipt out there.

  11. Noki says:

    They are forgetting they will need him for a united front for the coronation and PoW investiture,i hope he tells them tp go to HEYAL!

    • equality says:

      Considering how the petition in Wales concerning POW title, I wouldn’t go near it if I were PH. Wouldn’t show up for “not my king” either.

    • kirk says:

      Whyever would the King need a non-working royal at his coronation? I mean it’s related to work isn’t it?

  12. Mrs Robinson says:

    Can we talk about lounge suits? I’m picturing all the world leaders arriving in matching velours track suits.

  13. Eurydice says:

    This is weird. Everything rehearsed with military precision and the only miscommunications were with Harry and Meghan? Either there have been more screw ups that we haven’t heard about, or the “miscommunications” have been calculated. Actually, it’s probably both.

    • First comment says:

      You’re right! I mean they had the whole operation of the Queen’s death and funeral “rehearsed ” in a way (operation London bridge) and they make this kind of “errors”? They need all the goodwill they can get from the funeral for the monarchy to continue to exist and the whole thing has become a circus.. the day of the funeral can’t come soon enough …

  14. tuille says:

    There’d better be no sign of any Yorks at the party. Aside from being non-working, would Andy be sufficiently ashamed to avoid any contact with “world leaders?”

  15. Amy Bee says:

    I tend to believe that Charles did uninvite Harry and Meghan. In that same Telegraph piece it says that having Harry and Meghan among world leaders was inconceivable to some at the Palace. They didn’t want pictures of Harry and Meghan talking to Biden etc. This is Charles’ coming out party and he doesn’t want Harry and Meghan’s presence to overshadow him holding his first major reception as King.

    • Jais says:

      Yeah, I believe they were invited but I’m not sure the Sussexes said no. Only bc their whole energy has been ok we’re honoring gran and going where we’re asked. Very much this is our last hurrah with these people so let’s do what we gotta then peace out. I can see Charles and William then realizing how Harry will get all the attention and rescinding the invite. It’s definitely possible the Sussexes said no but they’ve been showing up when asked so far. Idk I could see either scenario.

    • Mindy_DeLaCalle says:

      The power these ‘palace officials’ have over THE SUPPOSED KING, is baffling. That’s what I don’t understand – you’re supposed to be all ruling all powerful but you’re being influenced and bullied by your STAFFERS?! Enough to ‘change your mind’ after already inviting them? I can’t imagine the headache Camilla must be having, this is what you wanted sweetie, now you’re fighting with everyone else for his ear.

      • Jennifer says:

        That’s something I’ve never gotten about the BRF. Aren’t they in charge of their staff and not the other way around?

    • MsIam says:

      Well its also Baldemort’s coming out party too. And since he’s going to miss his trip to NYC and his chance to mingle with the big dogs, he definitely wouldn’t want to see Harry and Meghan get that chance. They already stole his and his witch wife’s thunder at the walk about. I think he ran and cried to daddy about it. I think Charles was looking for a PR win and having both of his son’s together would have been welcomed.

    • Midnight@theOasis says:

      I agree. The Sussexes have been supportive and amenable to whatever they’ve been asked to do. I doubt they declined the invite. They were told not to come because Charles, William courtiers didn’t want H&M being the stars of the reception.

      • ThatsNotOkay says:

        I don’t think they were told even as of now. Just the press assuming since it’s for “working royals.” So I think they should show up and see what happens. That’s my dream, anyway.

      • Lucky Charm says:

        @thatsnotokay, what are they going to do if the Sussexes show up, have them publicly escorted off the property? If that happened, the new king may as well bury the monarchy with his mother.

      • Babz says:

        @Lucky Charm, I believe that’s exactly what would happen. The courtiers would throw their weight around, and try to have them escorted from the premises by security, and KC3 and his horrid PoW son would stand by and let it happen. They’ve shown me nothing so far that would indicate either one of them would call off the guard dogs. They would then leak it to the press, if not actually do it in front of the cameras. Yes, they are exactly that awful and petty. They’re not smart enough to think long-term and prevent damage to the royal brand. And when the inevitable public backlash would come, as it has this week, they’d make a complete hash of their self-defense, too, and receive more much-deserved ridicule. I would love that for them.

      • Gabby says:

        Speaking of courtiers, is Edward Young still on the scene and working for Charles now? Because if he is, I can see him having a hand in this.

    • Sumodo1 says:

      How right you are. King Up-Chuck was angry at Diana upstaging him in the 1980s. H & M are giving him flashbacks. Whatever goes around, comes around.

    • QuiteContrary says:

      This is the same Charles after all who was angry when Diana outshined him. He won’t allow Diana’s charismatic son and brilliant daughter-in-law to do it now. Not when he finally gets the spotlight he thinks he deserves.

      As the saying goes, dimming someone else’s light doesn’t make yours brighter. It just makes the world darker.

    • Michelle says:

      I agree. I think PC3 and PoW and KKKKhate didn’t want H&M at the event and uninvited them. They are so shortsighted and petty. Charles and William want the Firm to last, they would embrace/support Harry but they just can’t help themselves. It doesn’t have to be this way and H+M could be amazing ambassadors for the UK even part-time, living in California. I can’t believe William doesn’t see it and after seeing Kate give Meghan the death stare, it makes me wonder how much HE’S been influenced by Kate.

  16. Seraphina says:

    “You know these dumbasses speak in riddles” – TRUTH and hilarious.

  17. ML says:

    My sincere condolences and sympathy to H&M for this latest round of BS. The BRF is supposed to be chock a block full of very gracious, mannered, polite types that never put a foot wrong, blah, blah, blah. And yet, during a family funeral they have gone overboard trying to be as publicly petty and vindictive as possible. This might be okay in Great Britain, but internationally it’s just not how you treat people.

  18. Snuffles says:

    Page Six said the protocol had not been updated after Meghan and Harry left The Firm and the invite was sent by mistake. Which I believe because I read that the last time London Bridge was updated was 2017.

    • MsIam says:

      Well if Andrew didn’t get an invite then that would be a lie. Because no way in 2017 would they have not invited the Kings brother or would they know he wasn’t a working royal. So this was a snub and not a “mistake”.

    • CrazyHeCallsMe says:

      That sounds like a CYA story. The palaces realize how this looks and are now trying to come up with an excuse for their actions.

    • Nutella toast says:

      I’m sure it was updated after Phillips passing. Had to be.

    • Eurydice says:

      Well, if they didn’t update the protocol, that would be incredibly stupid of them. Every passing year brought the likelihood of implementation closer and closer. With TQ at age 96, they should have been brushing the dust off the plan and taking another look.

    • RoyalBlue says:

      Hahaha. This is a joke right? Evil Chuckie has been praying and planning for London Gate for decades. Given Betty’s ill health this year, there is no way that protocol was sitting collecting dust in some old cupboard for 5 years. It was updated WEEKLY if not daily.

    • Debbie says:

      So, the protocol wasn’t even updated when the queen became ill? Didn’t she get Covid too? Such well prepared people.

      • Jennifer says:

        To be fair, no plan survives contact with the enemy…which is to say, Charles probably made some changes to the plans so he could get vengeance, or whatever.

  19. Over it says:

  20. Margaret says:

    I really, really, dislike charlie, cammie, willy, and k8. Full stop.

    • Laura D says:

      The sad thing is they really really don’t give two monkeys about how we feel. They’ve got their hands on the “loot” and are surrounded by sycophants who will shield them from our criticism. As much as I hate what they’re doing to H&M the truth is the whole world are seeing how horrible they are to them. This isn’t “she said, he said” this is the whole ugly underbelly brought to the light and regardless of what the UK tabloids are saying, a LOT of people are not impressed.

      They’ve had 70 years to plan this funeral and it’s believed TQ oversaw the scheduling. What we’re seeing now is “The Men in Grey” her son and her grandson sticking their mucky fingers in and messing everything up. “Uninviting” a King’s son and a crown princess isn’t something that would have happened on her watch, or if it did the public would never have heard about it. SMH

  21. Harper says:

    I hope Harry and Meghan are just chilling at Frogmore on their off days, ordering in food, watching movies, taking naps, meeting up with close friends and family. Meanwhile Charles and William are frantically scheming, sweating, and plotting their next snub while Kate is obsessing about how to match Meghan’s lip color, wave of hair, pouty lip look but feeling nothing but frustration. Clowns. All of them.

    • Snuffles says:


      Same. I’m hoping they’ve been catching up with friends. Maybe visiting Diana’s sisters and her grave.

  22. Colleen says:

    I kinda disagree a little bit with how it all went down and Harry saying no.

    I think the Wails are the ones who threw a massive hissy fit to get them uninvited. Can you imagine all of the pictures of the Bidens and Meghan having an actual, intellectual conversation (remember how badly Kate came across when she did the summit with the First Lady?) would have taken away from the attention Kate will get by cosplaying in royal jewels while waving her hands around and making big faces?

    • Jay says:

      The Wails!!! 🤣🤣🤣

      I’ve been struggling with what to call them now that they can no longer be the Keenbridges! Thank you! Stealing this!

  23. neale says:

    No way can the Firm have Kate failing to hold an intelligent conversation in the same room where Meghan succeeds. All Kate can do is hold a flute of white wine and swan from one person to another. But after she says George loves France, Charlotte loves Germany and Louis loves Spain, she runs out of children before she even covers Europe. She’s left with mumbling how much the queen was loved and will be missed. Meghan probably has more queen anecdotes than Kate.

    At this reception, Meghan can have substantive conversations with all kinds of leaders, garner crowds of undivided attention and even a bit of laughter. And when Meghan converses in Spanish with the Spaniards, game over. People who didn’t pay attention to gossip threads will notice the difference at this event. The “uninvitation” is cover to avoid a comparison which exposes Kate as completely charmless and incompetent to interact with world leaders. The results of all those decades of dodging work and self-improvement are coming to blow up in their faces.

    • Snuffles says:


      PREACH!! Meghan would make ALL of them look like clowns!! I could totally see her holding court with all of the Latino leaders.

    • Harla A Brazen Hussy says:

      I imagine that K will swan over to Justin T and stop there.

      • MerlinsMom1018 says:

        Wellllll, in all fairness, I have to say that I too, would swan over to Justin T and stop there. 🤷

      • PunkPrincessPhD says:

        @Harla: Sophie Grégoire (aka Mrs Trudeau) will be attending as well. And she could absolutely take Kate in a fight.

    • Dominique says:

      Respectfully, i appreciate the sentiment but i highly doubt that Meghan would be garnering crowds of undivided attention. Those types of statements only fuel the haters. I’m sure she ( and Harry) is savvy enough to know that all attention should be on the new King and up till, now they have been incredibly low key for this very reason.
      This is a hierarchal monarchy after all. It would be completely inappropriate for anyone else to hog the attention.
      In any case, given the extraordinary list of people invited to this reception, i think that they would far more eager to network amongst each other than any royal, other than the King himself.

      • Jais says:

        In regards to “it would be completely inappropriate for anyone else to hog all the attention”….the issue is that Harry and Meghan’s mere presence shouldn’t hog all the attention. If everyone in the room or the BM choose to give them all the attention, that’s not their faults. If they were given all the attention and didn’t do any less or more than anyone else, it doesn’t seem fair to blame them for it. Obviously, there will be many important people in the room, so had Harry and Meghan attended, who knows how much attention they would have received? It’s a moot point now as they were disinvited, but had they attended something they were invited to, it wouldn’t mean they were inappropriately hogging the attention, even if they did happen to receive more than others. Again, however, we will conveniently never know.

  24. HandforthParish says:

    This is such a weird story. When the announcement initially came it mentions working Royals only, which suggested they wouldn’t attend.
    Then it changed to Seniors and members of the family (very vague) and when someone mentioned them by name on Twitter it was then clarified that they weren’t invited.

    Someone is muddying the waters…

    • Jais says:

      It was originally reported in a telegraph article that the Sussexes were invited. Later, this was repeated on Twitter but it did not originate on Twitter. So if someone was muddying the waters, it would be someone who regularly chats with writers from the Telegraph.

    • Laura D says:

      I do believe they were invited but, the problem for Charles was that Andrew probably was as well! IMHO this is another example of using H&M to protect Andrew. I don’t think H&M would throw a fit one way or another but, Andrew would/did. He probably blew a gasket as to why “they” as non-working royals were allowed to go but not him. Let’s remind ourselves that this snake is foaming at the bit to get back into public life and would have been in his element schmoozing with the world’s elite.

      All in all H&M not going has worked out well for TQC and PoW because as others have said Meghan would be a natural in this environment.

      • MsIam says:

        I thought it was a cover for Andrew too, but I don’t think Charles would miss an opportunity to humiliate Andrew, especially now that the queen is dead. So I think Andrew’s name would have been out out there as “uninvited” too if that was the case. I think its either Harry refused to come and pretend “happy family” with Charles or Baldemort pitched a fit.

      • Laura D says:

        Well Charles definitely missed the opportunity of humiliating Andrew by not having the ER removed from his uniform. It would seem that shame and humiliation is reserved for those who marry the woman they love.

        You’re probably right of course, William wouldn’t want Harry to overshadow him (which he would) so, I can see him screaming “if he goes, then I don’t”

      • Lemons says:

        These people are currently living minutes from each other. A text message is even quicker. We know the Sussexes aren’t running to the press to confirm or deny each little story. So what gives? Why is the communication so poor. Just say senior royals are invited. They are the Queen’s family after all. Tell Andrew to pretend like he needs to grieve at home and did not feel it was the right place to chat with world leaders.

        The obvious is that the “working royals” want the spotlight on them. And it’s getting weird that this needs to be said aloud when they could just try being charismatic enough to be well-received.

  25. Louise says:

    I think Harry and Meghan need to draw serious boundaries with this family. This is Harry’s family so he has to be the one to do this. They should have just attended the events focused on mourning the Queen. I feel they opened themselves to the “snubs” and perceived humiliation when they participated in the walk about. It’s not like these people treat them like loved members of the family. I feel bad for Meghan and I understand her wanting to support Harry but it’s time for her to protect her mental health. If Harry wants to keep subjecting himself to repeated abuse, she needs to say a firm NO! If I were Meghan I would stay the hell away from that family.

    • MsIam says:

      The walk about was all about mourning the Queen, why else would Harry and Meghan go? And during the Jubbly, the only events they participated in were the ones honoring the Queen. They didn’t go to the concerts and such with the rest of the family, not even Eugenie. So stop blaming Harry and Meghan for the treatment by his vile family. Harry said the relationship is “space” and he means it. And I’m sure it includes “Papa” too now. “King” Charles has now given Harry all the reasons in the world to never speak to him again.

      • BothSidesNow says:

        THIS!!! 👆👆👆👆👆👆👆

        Harry and Meghan HAVE drawn boundaries and are sticking to them. Yet we know that they have no control of how his family behaves, as well as the gutter rats and their reporting.

  26. Rapunzel says:

    I hope every dignitary asks Charles, Camilla, William, Kate, and every other royal where Harry and Meghan are. I hope they get besieged by guests wanting to know why the Sussexes weren’t invited. I hope the guests make it known they miss the Sussexes and the reception is awkward af. It’s deserved.

  27. K says:

    It appears that the Palace has taken Mean Girls as its pattern card for behavior. The old Regina has passed and now we have Charles as the new Regina, hissing at rebellious pens and disinviting people to parties. I hope H&M just finish up tomorrow and head home. They have behaved beautifully.

  28. Red Weather Tiger says:

    Liz isn’t even in the ground yet, but i’m sure she’s looking forward to having a grave so she can spin in it in peace. Charles is even worse at this job than she knew he would be.

    He’s a terrible father and will be a mediocre at best King.

    • Eurydice says:

      Yes, considering that the King doesn’t have any real power to govern, it comes down to personality – and Charles is a mediocre personality.

      • RoyalBlue says:

        I am sorry, I disagree the King doesn’t have real power. Someone who can influence laws, and laws that can affect their income and taxes, has power. Someone who can control the press, has power. Someone who can publicly accept bags of cash and escape unscathed, has power. Someone who can easily drum up millions of pounds to make someone go away, has power. This is what it means to have a monarchy.

      • Eurydice says:

        @ROYALBLUE – I said power to govern. Of course he has power to push people around – he’s basically an incredibly rich mafia don. That’s what it means to be a monarchy in the UK today. TQ was able to avoid that image because she started out with a clean slate and reigned through so many generations. But Charles is starting out as a mediocre bully. We’ll see.

      • RoyalBlue says:

        @Eurydice, I generally agree, but considering one of the roles of government is to make laws, and this King can influence these laws, then that’s governing power.

    • SussexWatcher says:

      Mediocre? He’s gonna burn it to the ground through his incompetence, jealousy, anger, and need to humiliate others. Diana was right about him. He’s not fit to be king.

        Well considering how utterly disgusting as well as his inability to keep his anger in check with 2 pens, he certainly hasn’t endeared any sense of respect. Charles was already coming in with multiple handicaps and it has only grown exponentially.

        Yes, Diana was quite right and we are all seeing it play out in real time.

  30. PassingTime says:

    Gotta love Charles lots of love for Harry and Meghan.

  31. Jackson says:

    Clown show.
    I hope Joe and Dr. Jill pop over to see their American friends.

  32. SussexWatcher says:

    I feel like everyday there is some new fcuk up and I’m here again writing that I can’t believe how petty, vile, stupid and incompetent Chuck is. He is fcuking up every single day. I don’t even understand how someone could accidentally screw up this badly. I alternate between my mind being blown and laughing hysterically at the downfall we’re witnessing. (Okay, mostly laughing at the sweet karma of reputations being ruined, which Chuck and Peggington completely deserve.)

    Harry and Meghan being uninvited and Crown Princess Mary being uninvited. Wanting to put other royals and heads of state on buses! Swearing at fountain pens and stomping off like a tantrum-throwing 2 year old. Who does this?! How are his staff so incompetent? How can a literal king be so petty and insecure?

    Wasn’t the entire London Bridge is Falling protocol planned for years in advance? Every single thing down to the last detail, we were told. And yet, here we are every single day with some new fcuk up.

    I cannot wait for Harry and Meghan to get out of that hellhole. And I hope they never return.

    • Jay says:

      I just went and looked up the deal with CP Mary- I always thought the Danish royals were supposed to be particularly close to the Windsors! You’d think that they could have extended three invites instead of only two! Guess not.

      And yeah, so much for years of planning so that everything would run like a well-oiled machine!

      • Jaded says:

        Prince Philip was born into Danish and Greek royalty so CP Mary’s uninvite makes absolutely no sense. They seem to be making up these so-called “rules” on the fly based on what? Maybe Khate insisted on her being uninvited because her visit with her was such a disaster. I can’t wait to see the jazz hands and maniacal grins, she’s got nothing else to offer in the way of intelligent conversation with these world leaders.

      • BothSidesNow says:

        @ Jaded, I was speculating that same scenario but I thought I was bonkers to suggest such a thought so I didn’t comment on it. Bit I agree with you wholeheartedly!!! Keen has made herself a utter fool with a majority of foreign and CW countries that they may, in the future, only receive a very small number of countries.

    • Jennifer says:

      “If this is where the monarchy is headed, count me out!”

      Seriously, this is exactly why people thought things would go to hell when Charles was in charge. Now he can act however he likes and get all his tiny petty revenges.

      On a related note, I’m watching The Windsors right now and what just came up?

      Camilla: “What would you do if you had real power?”
      Charles: “I’d line them all up against the wall and shoot them.”

  33. Steph says:

    My guess: they know this is Harry’s area. He’s really much better at this type of event than any other member of the family. He would make them look good. They wanted him there. I think it was clear he wasn’t going to go so that had it published in an effort to force his hand. It didn’t work so the rest is them trying to cover their asses. And as usual, it’s a shit show.

    • BothSidesNow says:

      I sincerely doubt that Harry, along with Meghan, declined the invitation. As you mentioned, this would have been a golden opportunity for KCIII to use their strengths to uplift his declining popularity. Harry, along with Meghan, have been willing to attend all of the events expected of them, including this one.

      This is merely an insight as to how far Charles is willing to give in to his incandescent son, along with the vile and incompetent wife of Pegginton.

  34. Noor says:

    The monarchy adheres strictly to enforce their rules to protect the senior working royals’ hierarchy and privileges vis a vis other royals.

    When Harry stepped back 2 years ago, they should have revised their rules and formulate new ones to accomodate the new fact that there is now a senior non working royal who is the late Queen grandson and the current KIng’s son.

  35. Jensa says:

    I imagine Charles and William are beside themselves at the prospect of hosting so many international dignitaries – so many state leaders in one room. To date, these people have pretty much ignored C+W, but C+W will see this as the networking opportunity of a lifetime. Which I suppose it is, after all. Even if the VIPs are really only there for TQ.
    With that in mind, I can believe the Sussexes were uninvited, after C+W had had a chance to reflect. Because some of these VIPs (the Bidens for example) already know – and clearly like – Harry. I reckon they were afraid the Sussexes would steal their thunder. And they probably would have.
    I believe petty jealousy is at the root of this. Both C+W have very delicate egos.

  36. RoyalBlue says:

    For the palace to state they were uninvited, means they want us all to know they were invited. What I don’t understand is why publicly uninvite the couple when they were privately invited. I believe the Sussexes received a formal invitation earlier in the week and what followed next was either they accepted, rejected or didn’t RSVP. I would like to think it’s because the Sussexes politely declined. We don’t know, because the Sussexes have been silent, while the palace leaks. The house of Windsor is a hot mess.

  37. aquarius64 says:

    The Sussex disinvite was a mess, but I was stunned by CP Mary flustercuck. Don’t think for a minute world leaders are not aware of these screw ups and side eyeing the new monarch. The US got their way and the Bidens are in London with the Beast, the armored presidential limo and Secret Service. You know those world leaders are mad they can’t bring their own security.

    At the end of the day it’s too late. The damage has been done.

    • SnoodleDumpling says:

      From what I can find the last official full update of Queenie’s funeral plan was in 2017, and Prince Henrik died the year after that. This would naturally change the Denmark invites.

      But this family and institution has spent the last five years or so continuously flipping their lid at the Sussexes existing, and also staging entire productions of ‘Denial: The Musical’ at volumes loud enough to drown out the inescapable fact that Queenie was a 90-someodd-year-old mortal who would die rather soon. They should have been updating the funeral plans once a year at this point, even if only to go through an invites checklist. They should have done some sort of update to address the changes that the Sussexes stepping back would inevitably bring to the plan (I’m guessing they thought Meghan would be long gone by now with no kids).

      My take on it is that they’ve spent the last twenty years AT LEAST continuously repeating to themselves that they have everything planned out to the finest detail so their minds blanked out on the fact that things like ‘who do invitations go to’ and ‘how many’ are things that change year to year and have to be manually updated.

  38. Jay says:

    This is a lot like during the jubilee when the Sussexes were supposedly “barred” from certain events and the Windsors embarrassed themselves by publicly shunning a baby on her first birthday- it’s not the power move they seem to think it is.

    And sorry, I don’t buy that Charles’ courtiers are so out of control that they somehow invited and then disinvited the king’s son without him knowing, or that there was some kind of mix up. If you are king, that’s on you to make those decisions and not try to pretend that you “intervened” later as with the suit fiasco, lol. Intervened with whom, Charles? Who is calling the shots?

    It sounds to me like Charles wanted the Sussex star power at the reception, but Harry said “no”, that they’ve had a long week away from their young children, and just want to spend a quiet evening together, attend the funeral tomorrow, and get home. It’s no longer Harry’s job to slap on his game face and shill for this ungrateful family.

    • CrazyHeCallsMe says:

      If Harry had said no and declined the invitation, that would have been the headlines instead of them being disinvited. A no would have been used against the Sussexes and we’d get endless disrespecting the Queen stories because they didn’t attend the reception. How dare they say no.

  39. Red Weather Tiger says:

    Anyone else think Charles is trying to get a public reaction out of H&M so that he has a “reason” to yank HRH Prince Archie and HRH Princess Lili’s titles?

    • Laura D says:

      I don’t think it’s just about Archie and Lili’s titles. There’s a lot more at stake. Despite all the smears and the leaks H&M are still popular – even in the UK. They have a lot of sympathy from around the world and their projects are soaring. Even though they must be very angry at what’s happening around them, H&M have kept a dignified silence throughout this whole process.

      Charles and William need H&M to “lose it” in order to justify the terrible treatment of their son/brother. They need something to discredit any stories in the book by having something to refer back to. They need a story to silence Twitter who push back at their lies and misinformation. Look how they allowed the “Meghan made Kate cry” debacle to run for nearly two years. Can you imagine what they would be like if they had a real incident to use as a point of reference?

      • Red Weather Tiger says:

        I’m just glad Harry and Meghan are smart enough not to give him any ammunition (beyond their very existence, of course).

  40. s808 says:

    Funny how the faucets are running non stop when they’re around the windsors and shut off tight when they’re in Cali but H&M are the ones who can’t be trusted not to leak anything. If I were them, my luggage would in the the car waiting outside the building so I can go straight to the airport afterwards and catch the first flight back home.

  41. SussexFan says:

    The “aides” or Charles may indeed have something to do with this latest insult, but don’t count Camilla out. She approves of anything he does. She cannot stand Meghan, and this could be getting back at her through Harry.

    Camilla and Kate wanna be girls together? Fine…just wait until the funeral is over. The real backstabbing will begin between those two “winners.”

    • WiththeAmerican says:

      I think people forget just how conniving and manipulative Cam is, and how cruel she is. She enjoys making the target of her envy suffer publicly humiliation after humiliation.

      As for Chuck, he loves to put out the narrative that was in The Queen movie about Diana’s death, that mean mummy didn’t want to honor Diana as he plead with her to do so.

      But here we are, years later, and he is the same petty cold shoulder he blamed her for, but toward his own son.

    • Sumodo1 says:

      Agreed! Can you imagine the frisky fillies on the town? Mugging for the Rota, lightbulb waving from a landau clamshell carriage at the Derby, pig outs with only canapes and sherry at BP, and soft-focus background photo spreads shot by Kate of a glowing Cam-n-grandkids? Ugh. I’d prefer Daily Fail back-alley shots of Queen Cam scoring K in Soho.

  42. Dr Mrs The Monarch says:

    Whether it is intentional or not, the Sussexes are being treated terribly. Every appearance is a last-minute scramble as the palace waffles on everything from walkabouts to uniform changes. In the media H&M can’t do anything right and don’t jump high enough when the palace adds them as an afterthought – how many times this week? 3 or 4?

    I bet they will be invited and disinvited to 3 more events while they are on the flight home.

    • SussexFan says:

      Fact is, a LOT OF PEOPLE realize this now and hate this offal being shoveled onto the Sussexes.

      There are so many “Diana said it,” and “Meghan called it,” on Twitter right now. A lot of minds are being changed at this behavior.

      BTW, has anyone recalled that a former Daily Mail contributor is now in Chuck’s corner handling PR?

  43. HK9 says:

    You’d think that since King Charles is laying his mother to rest, the plan would be to make nice until it’s over & then go back to stabbing each other in the back. But noooo. This makes him look bad and very, very petty.

  44. Nic919 says:

    I will not be shocked if we see Henry Mountbatten Windsor, American citizen, within five years.

    • Dara says:

      Same. I wasn’t so sure while the Queen was still alive, but now I am.

      What I can’t decide is if Harry and Meghan will “voluntarily” surrender their titles, and the palace will brief to that effect, or if Chuck will make a big show of punishing them. Charles is just deluded enough to think the latter would make him look…regal. He’d be wrong, but I doubt there’s anyone around that would be smart enough, or brave enough, to tell him.

      • Nyro says:

        If they’re going to go that route, it would be incredible if he would debut his new name when he drops his book. Harry Mountbatten Windsor smack dab on the cover.

    • MsIam says:

      My bet is on Henry Archewell. Their own family name.

  45. Jaded says:

    Once again, I can see Edward Young’s oily hands all over this disinvite. He loaths the Sussexes and will do just about anything to cockblock them. It was Two Buck Chuck who hired him in the first place because he’s an obsequious toady in the Jason “The Knife” Knauf mould. Well here you have it folks — the royals and their palaces are now officially the Keystone Cops of the monarchy.

    • Dilettante says:

      Me too.

    • windyriver says:

      Charles (and Andrew) bounced Geidt and installed Young as TQ’s private secretary in 2017 just two months after Philip officially retired. I’m sure that wasn’t a coincidence.

      And, I like you recalling the original Two Buck Chuck in honor of the new monarch. Someone here a while back designated the present first couple as the Mistress Queen and the Tampon King, and as much as I do appreciate Charles the Turd, this is how that pair will continue to be known, for me.

      Despite the many questionable things he was involved with over the years, Two Buck hung onto Michael Fawcett for years, until he finally had no choice but to permanently sacrifice himself to protect Charles’ shady dealings around the foundation. He seems to need to always have someone to fill this role, and I expect Edward Young to have the job for some time to come.

  46. Likeyoucare says:

    Not sure why more than 30% poster here blame harry for his clusterfu@k family doing.

    Harry and meghan were following the itinerary given for harry’s grandmother funeral.

    Charles staffs kept making mistakes and doing their jobs base on their raging emotion rather than being professional in their easy task.

    1st no uniform, then outrage from british people.
    Yes harry will wear uniform.

    2nd Invite harry, dammit he and meghan will look too popular among world leaders, disinvite him.

    Charles need to fire the old biddies and find new educated in pr and and add some from commonwealth countries staffs.
    By Tuesday if he didnt grovel with harry. Harry might refuse to come for his coronation.

  47. Aurora says:

    All these news based on ‘if, maybe, probably, should have’… There’s no even the point on discussing something that wasnt on the news just to add fuel to the controversies. Personally, I ‘d prefer if M&H dont attend the reception. They didnt want that life, and the press has ruined any hope of her interaction with the family not being at the center of everybody’s attention.

  48. Jaded says:

    Just when I think I couldn’t dislike Two-Buck Chuck any more….

    • WiththeAmerican says:

      He travels with his own bed and toilet seat. The fussy pen was nothing! (Also making someone lay nose down on a trailer to look for bugs so he can claim an organic garden is … I can’t.)

  49. B says:

    Train wrecks.
    No wonder Harry prefers being with Americans

  50. Lynne says:

    How do we know that she was invited to begin with and then disinvited….and that Charles did it?

  51. tamsin says:

    I think Harry and Meghan have behaved with the utmost grace and dignity. I can’t imagine how this invitation mess started, but I don’t think Harry would decline anything he was asked to do in relation to the rituals of his grandmother’s funeral. I think Harry being used to protect Andrew is the most plausible excuse. I’ve been reading that the middle eastern contingent is not pleased with how they are being handled either. Possibly, the capacity of the Abbey might be a factor, but that is the only grace that can be granted to the disgusting manner of Charles’s court in the Queen’s funeral. Canada, by the way, has a delegation of 10, including all living former prime ministers. I think they are trying to toady to the Commonwealth countries. Just saw a picture of Kate with a hand on a black Caribbean prime minister. Remember that her work with the Commonwealth is something that is always pointed out as one of the Queen’s biggest achievements. There are about three more processions and casket movements after the actual funeral, so I don’t think Harry and Meghan can escape before Tuesday morning at the latest. It’s too bad they this mourning period has managed to wipe out what was going to be a big month for Meghan.

    • Dilettante says:

      This…Harry being used to protect Andrew’s hurt feelings, and Two Buck Chuck toadying to members of the Commonwealth.

  52. Athena says:

    I read that KC is keeping the Queen’s private secretary Edward Young on. The commoner with an ax to grind against a blood prince, that tells me all I need to know about how Harry will be treated under KC.

    This reception is a big network event and the palace thinks this will provide the Sussexes an opportunity to make contacts, but in truth I can’t see too many government officials not taking a call from the Sussexes even if it’s from pure curiosity (I wonder why Harry is calling)

    Earlier on, one article stated that the Sussexes were staying in the U.K. for the five days of mourning after the funeral. I don’t see the point unless Harry needs to be there for the reading of the will.

    As far as the invite to Crown Princess Mary, someone with common sense and real class would know that if you’re throwing a party and invite someone in error the thing to do is honor that invite. These people have no class.

  53. HeyKay says:

    If H&M are now non-working royals they don’t have to attend this huge PR ceremony.
    No need to stir up a bunch of crap about it.
    Personally, I’d be glad to be well out of it.
    The stress of the past, what 10 days?

    It’s all pomp and show, the family must have a private ceremony just for themselves I assume.

    I bet Anne would like to just stay home too, she must be exhausted to the bone.

    These ongoing for days and days ceremonies are just too much. Too much.

    Someone mentioned all the flowers… and yes, I agree that it would have made much more sense to make a donation to a food bank vs waste of money on all those flowers.
    They could have raised a huge amount, done a lot of good in memory of TQ.
    Be excellent if instead of some expensive statue or something, they could start a charity fund in TQ name.

    • MoonRiver says:

      I agree with you about Harry and Meghan’s absence from this event. Receiving heads of state isn’t a function of non-working royals, no matter how high up in the line of succession Harry is at the moment. I’m sure they were relieved to stay home. Obviously, the leak of the “uninvited” was designed to humiliate Harry and Meghan, but it only makes the royals look bad.

  54. Isabella says:

    I picture a ghastly affair with the world’s worst people included, like what’s his name, the butcher from Saudi Arabia. The Sussexes are used to meeting rich and powerful people, so perhaps they would prefer to have the night off

    In my humble opinion, Wills, Kate and Harry didn’t have to share the limelight with the Sussexes in the receiving line.

    We now see that the Queen did love and protect them. But that’s gone now. They are loved and respected in the U.S. and have 2 cute little kids waiting for them.

    They will be fine.

  55. JCallas says:

    Harry and Meghan were getting too much positive press so someone high up decided it was time to put them in their place again.

  56. Alexandria says:

    What the heck is happening? This is turning into some supernatural karma payback…I sit and watch. I sit and laugh.

    Mary needs to sit down with Oprah: “Mary, were you invited or were you uninvited?”. With Netflix of course!

  57. Beverley says:

    The Royal Family’s sole emotion is racism. Whew! They can’t even begin to hide it during this official period of mourning. Being petty and racist appears to be their default…even when they’re well aware the world is watching.

    It’s super important to KCIII and the RF that they demonstrate to their British subjects that Prince Harry is being sorely punished for marrying a biracial American. Next up, KC will pull Prince Archie and Princess Lilbet’s HRH titles and declare the Sussexes be “exiled”.

    Royal Family has gotta stay white. Period.

  58. TeamMeg says:

    “Despite the grandeur of their surroundings, the reception will be a muted affair, with guests asked to wear lounge suits or morning dress” – When I read this I thought: Oh fun! Sweatpants and PJs!!

  59. The Recluse says:

    Charles’ period of goodwill, his honeymoon as the new monarch, will be lucky to last more than two years. We could very well be witnessing the beginning of the end of the monarchy.

  60. Gabby says:

    This is one event. The world has paid attention to the disinvite, and taken note. The new king looks bad. It remains to be seen if the working royals impress anyone at this thing. I agree with someone upthread who said this is Williams big debut. He may make something of it, he may not. Harry and Meghan will go on to outshine KCIII and The 2 Other Royals on the world stage for years to come.

    In less than 48 hours, the queen will be buried. The Sussexes will be released from captivity and on their way back to the US. Their home. This ordeal is almost over and they have no further obligations to the house of windsor. Chuckles won’t be having any jubilees, unless they start doing them at the 5-year mark. It will be decades before Prince T2OR has a coronation or jubilee of his own.

    I hope that M&H take time to embrace their kids, and relax and recover for whatever time they need. Then they will get out there and do what they do best. November will be here soon and we can distract ourselves with midterm elections, then the Crown will start back up on Netflix. Then Harry’s book, Meghan’s podcast. A new dawn beckons.

  61. Midnight@theOasis says:

    Sadly, I think the Queen did what she could to protect H&M, but now that she’s gone, the gloves are off. I expect the attacks to ramp up and the BM with the backing and consent of the BRF will do everything they can to discredit and destroy the Sussexes on the world stage. The unfounded fear of Harry’s memoir is going to be a driver. King Charles and company need to discredit and cast aspersions on Harry’s memoir because they believe it reflects poorly on them. Also, the BRF can’t have H&M upstaging them on the world stage. I think the BM is going full throttle at this point to take H&M down.

    • Tessa says:

      If they “take them down” or even try, it will be done on the world stage. Look at how Maria Shriver sent out those tweets, others will do the same.

  62. Solidgold says:

    The British royal media are doing what they do best, create stories based on unreliable or nonexistent sources.

    The drama and spin started as soon as Harry and Meghan were in UK airspace. Everyday it’s something stupid, Balmoral-gate, Walkabout-gate, Uniform-gate, Handholding-gate, Invitation-gate. I am positive the media will have a funeral-gate.

  63. jferber says:

    This ALL confirms that Harry and Meghan belong in California and absolutely made the right decision to remove themselves from the spite, hate, racism, insults and danger of this deranged, stupid, incompetent, criminal family. I’d compare them to the Mafia, but at least the Mafia know how to get shit done. And they never target wives and families when they take out their enemies. They even send wreaths to the funeral!

  64. Regal Beagle says:

    It’s not just the British media but Down Under, too! I unfortunately watched a recent Sky News segment on You Tube where this awful politico woman stated ‘Harry should come to his senses and go back across the pond and leave that awful woman.’ She says other mean stuff too. I just cannot believe how truly mean people are any more…about a lot of things, really. I am almost in tears about it. I cannot fathom how Harry and Meghan are dealing with all this.

  65. EveV says:

    I really truly think they were uninvited or never invited because the Windsors knew it would be all about Meghan and Harry and they just can’t stand that. That family is so jealous and petty, they will eat their young (almost literally in Charles’ and Harry’s case).
    M&H are meeting leaders all the time, they don’t need this little service to run elbows with the world’s elite.
    I really hope they know that anybody that isn’t a racist and who actually has 2 braincells to run together are on their side.

    • Mary says:

      “I really truly think they were uninvited or never invited because the Windsors knew it would be all about Meghan and Harry and they just can’t stand that.”

      @evey, I agree and think this is why they are floating the idea that George might come to the funeral because they figure he would pull the attention away from Meghan and Harry.

  66. jferber says:

    Regal Beagle, I hear you. Yes, this is very upsetting. I’ve adopted a policy (I wish I followed it more!): sometimes I’ll just not watch the news or read the gossip when I’m already treading rough waters (which I am now). I respectfully recommend this option to you, too. By the way, I’ve always wanted to live in Australia or New Zealand. I live in New York, but it’s not all it’s cracked up to be. A fellow (and sympathetic) Celebitchy.

    • Regal Beagle says:

      Jferber I think you’re like me – we are just sick of the meanness permeating our world. Sometimes I wonder if we “empaths” are a dying breed. I sure hope not! BTW, I live a state away – Pennsylvania and I’ve been Down Under a couple of times. It’s lovely, but I think we are better off here in the U.S. despite all the craziness the past five years. Have a wonderful week!

  67. rea says:

    These are not the headlines that should be appearing. The family needs to be a united front right now while the country is in mourning.

  68. jferber says:

    Regal Beagle, Thanks for the sweet thoughts. Have a great week, too.

  69. L4Frimaire says:

    The royal family under Charles III is a vindictive clown show trying to whip up hatred against Harry and Meghan. I’m glad we’re getting radio silence from the Sussexes. None of this bile and vitriol merits a response. The royal family look absolutely disgusting and we see them. Will be so glad once the Queen is in the ground. They won’t be able to hide behind her and use the Sussexes as a shield the same way once this is all over. They have turned this funeral into a sideshow to get revenge on the Sussexes. Much respect for Harry and Meghan who have been dignified and kept their own counsel during this dystopian ordeal.

  70. Sharon says:

    Perfectly put!👆🏻

  71. nina says:

    All I want is for Harry and Meghan to get on that plane when all this is over, kick off their shoes, put on some headphones, relax, get home, see their babies and close the gate to their property.
    Have some rest and recover from this shit show, then go back to living their life and making their money. Let Chuck, Camilla and the Peggingtons plan and scheme, because life is a thing that happens while you making plans. Real life is going to come at Chuck hard and fast.
    These delusional freaks really think that the whole world is mourning Eliza’s passing. No, most of us are rubbernecking, watching a show of pomp and ceremony.

  72. Nevia says:

    So they WILL trot out the kids tomorrow. Not just George but also Charlotte.

  73. jferber says:

    Nevia, but why not Louis? If Nanny Maria were there . . . Otherwise instead of swanning, Kate would have to faux deal with Louis, the child who won’t take direction from his mother, especially when she and Will don’t set him up for success.

  74. morgfunk says:

    honestly what really troubles me and I’m not sure if it’s been spoken about explicitly on here definitely hinted at…The royal family have a troll farm they use to prop themselves up. It’s obvious on the daily fail but there was an article on the NYT I read about the Wales and I read the comment and holy crap, they’re mostly not real. Praising Will and Kate like insane crazy delusional stuff like claiming Prince Willam flew to New Zealand as a first responder after their mass shooting like in the capacity of the air search and rescue fake ish job he had in Wales…the commenter claimed he kept it hush hush didn’t want any publicity when really he went to the memorial to glad hand for 2 days and there was a puff piece on that in vanity Fair. I could go on but no one has time for their crazy horse crap…Same troll farm they use to attack Harry and Meghan ostensibly…why bother doing good things when you can pay people to say you did! Someone take their money they have too much of it!

    • Mary says:

      “Someone take their money they have too much of it!”. LOL, so true but given that Charles’ new Press Secretary is a former editor of the Daily Mail and how Charles and Camilla have cozied up with the likes of Angela Levin and Edwards, the photographer that spent an inordinate amount of time trashing both Harry and Meghan, I think that the media wars and trollling will continue unabated, if not worse.

  75. Siobhan says:

    Who initially reported that they were invited to this event – was it Omid Scobie? Did anyone else or any palace sources ever report that they were invited or would attend? I’m confused if the Palace position is that they are disinvited or if the position is that they were never actually invited or that there was a screw up and they were invited accidentally?

      It is my understanding the palace sources confirmed that they were first invited and then disinvited because they had been invited by an error in protocol. Hence the weird comment about lack of communication between the Sussexes and the palace.

    The Palace makes these “errors” only to humiliate, inflict pain and get headlines. I’d like to see one of the Palace “errors” made to anyone BUT H and M.

    Like, can they invite and then disinvite Will and Kate to an event, or Charles and Camilla? Just wondering.

    Sarcasm for the day: H&M can’t get invited because they forgot to bring a bag of cash to buy their way in.

    It’s sad because I still think that Harry and Meghan wish the RF had accepted the half in, half out arrangement. There’s a reason they have maintained a home there, I think they still have some hope that they’ll be able to reconcile with Harry’s family and make something work. The RF and media will absolutely not allow this though. Charles is a coward and Will is entitled, jealous, and lazy (plus racist, of course).

    Princess Diana said that Charles would be a horrible king-the only people with power in the UK is the media and tabloid at that-all they have to do is shit towards the senior royals and they scream like banshees-a true king with power would have said from the beginning no stories about smearing any of the royal family members during this time of mourning-but Charles has a gun to his head when it comes to the UK media-why do courtiers have so much power that they can leak stories whether true or not and no consequence to their actions for doing so-Charles and other senior royals better toe the line or else-people need to stop bowing or curstying to the royals-save that for the UK media and the courtiers behind the scenes-the issues with Harry’s uniform and invite to luncheon would not have ever gotten out if KIng Charles had said not to do it-if he wants to look like a united front he needs to stop looking like he punishing the Sussexes in front of the whole planet. God keep and bless the Sussex family and give them strength as they move forward with their lives.

    They will just end up looking stupid and petty once again because H&Ms absence will make bigger news than any of their presence.
