The Sussexes’ Netflix docu-series will come out on December 8th, omg

Last week, People Magazine confirmed that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s Netflix docuseries will come out in December. We still don’t know the name of the series, nor have we seen a trailer (sob), but Page Six claims to have a release date and the original name of the series, which they’ve now changed:

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s highly anticipated Netflix docuseries will hit the streaming platform on Dec. 8, Page Six can exclusively reveal.

It was initially thought that the show’s release would be delayed due to backlash over the most recent season of “The Crown,” but Page Six confirmed last month that the streamer would be moving forward with a December release date.

The series, which will showcase the ousted royals’ “love story,” was once called “Chapters,” sources tell us, but the couple are believed to have changed their mind. The new title has not yet been made public.

[From Page Six]

They originally called it Chapters? Eh. I wonder if Deadline will apologize for their asinine Baz Bamigboye “report” about how “Netflix is rattled by King Charles and they’re postponing the Sussexes’ docu-series.” By all accounts, the series was always supposed to come out in December, about a month after The Crown, and here we are. That’s exactly what’s happening. Meanwhile, this curious thing happened yesterday:

Meghan Markle fans were put through a confusing series of unfortunate events today after NBC announced that the Duchess of Sussex would be making an appearance on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon on December 7 – only for her close media pal Omid Scobie to furiously deny the news just minutes later.

The mystery surrounding Meghan’s alleged talk show visit began on Monday after NBC published a story on its website stating that the mother-of-two ‘will appear on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon’ next month.

However, moments later, Omid, 41, took to Twitter to furiously deny the report – insisting that ‘someone at NBC didn’t get the memo’ and claiming that Meghan, 41, is not scheduled to make an appearance. ‘Looks like someone at NBC didn’t get the memo!’ he wrote. ‘Despite an announcement via their various PR channels, Meghan isn’t scheduled to appear on The Tonight Show.’

It’s now been confirmed that the blunder was on NBC’s part – as they admitted they erroneously said the Duchess would be appearing on the talk show. A representative from NBC confirmed that they made a mistake: ‘Earlier today, it was inaccurately reported that Meghan, The Duchess of Sussex would be appearing on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on December 7.’

The NBC piece – which has since been deleted – initially stated that Meghan would sit down with Fallon in order to discuss her recent projects, as well as the Sussexes’ upcoming Netflix documentary, a project that has already sparked furious controversy, even before its premiere.

[From The Daily Mail]

Yeah, Meghan was reportedly due to appear on The Tonight Show in September, but she had to cancel all of her appearances in New York that week, following QEII’s death. I’ve been wondering if Meghan promised the Tonight Show booker to try to come later, and honestly, it would make perfect sense for Meghan to do talk show appearances that week in New York anyway. Meghan and Harry are due to receive the Ripple of Hope Award on December 6th. Surely, they’ve booked other appearances for the NYC trip? So I kind of wonder if Meghan’s appearance was supposed to be a surprise? Or maybe she’s going on Colbert!! Maybe we’ll get another magazine interview too.

    I. Cannot. WAIT!! 💃🏻 Nobody should even attempt to speak to me on December 8th, lol. I need to find a “Do Not Disturb” thingy to hang from the doorknob.

  2. ThatsNotOkay says:

    Pretty sure NBC blew the surprise and screwed themselves by jumping the gun with that announcement. Amateurs.

    I look forward to Meghan appearing on every late-night show that week, as she SKIPS Fallon now.

  3. Snuffles says:

    Oh, it’s happening. They just jumped the gun on reporting it. They probably wanted to keep it a secret for security reasons. Or maybe it’s a Mis- direct and she’s filming in a different day and it will air on a different date.

  4. Seraphina says:

    Happy Holidays CBs – An early Christmas gift this year. Hahhahahah.

  5. MoBiMom says:

    That freaky Variety cover photo bothers me every time I see it. The sleeveless black dress plus the background cover make her shoulders look like they about twelve inches wide…. plus the gold ring around her neck…. plus the upward look. She looks like a cultist. I hate this for her. Of course her face is still gorgeous.

    • Amy Bee says:

      Either she looks gorgeous or hideous can’t be both. We see you.

      • MoBiMom says:

        I’m not a Meghan troll…. I”m a long time CBer and I love the Sussexes. I think whoever chose this cover photo did her a disservice. That’s all I’m saying.

      • Amy Bee says:

        Hmmm

      • Steph says:

        Nah, @amybee. I said the same thing when the pics were released. The editing of the Variety pic is weird. Look at her shoulders in The Cut pic. It’s clear that they extended past the edges of the pic. It’s not obvious in the Variety pic and without careful inspection she looks like she has absurdly narrow shoulders. I can’t pinpoint why they look so different though.
        It reminds me of a sculpture bust. The artists focus is on the head. The base may have a few anatomical details like a clavicle but it’s only wide enough to keep the sculpture standing up.

      • Nicki says:

        Big H&M stan and I totally agree re: that cover. They made her look strange. It’s off-putting.

      • TigerMcQueen says:

        I dunno. I feel the same way, and I’m a big fan of Meghan. The photo is weird AF (and the sleeveless top and background kind of makes her shoulders disappear). I hate the ring necklace especially against the no-shoulder look.

        It’s not a great photo yet at the same time, if you focus on her face, she’s gorgeous. There’s no hiding that about her.

      • Prairiegirl says:

        @AmyBee: This is CeleBITCHY and people have differing views about celebrities and express these on the regular. Insisting everyone love everything about the Sussexes all the time is awfully cultist and frankly off-putting. I’ve been reading this website since 2008 and I’ve never seen anything like the Meaghan stans for any other celebrity on this site. JFC.

        @MoBiMom: You’re right. It’s an awful cover. I can’t decide if the message is Welcome New Messiah or Up With People.

      • Blue Nails Betty says:

        Meghan is gorgeous, period.

        The design of the photoshoot is awful (especially the cover).

        Both are true.

      • Mary says:

        Agree that while Meghan is beautiful the picture is “freaky” for the reasons many of you have stated. I was also put off by her wearing what looked like, to me, a Star Trek slave collar (and at the end of the episode she’s looking up at the sky for Jim!)! I was very surprised by that fashion choice.

      • Sue E Generis says:

        I thought The Cut pictures were much fabulous with a terribly written profile but the Variety article knocked it out of the park and had not so great photos.

      • Faround says:

        Thank you Prairie!
        Well said! I don’t like Meghan or Harry very much at all. But I’ve followed this site from 2010. Do I need to provide a hall pass for Amy bee?

        Honestly 🙄

      • Bisynaptic says:

        Sure she can. She can be an obviously gorgeous woman in a terribly-styled—and terribly-shot picture.

    • BeyondTheFringe says:

      I’m a Sussex fan and I agree that I do not like the Variety cover. I like that she’s on it, just not what the photo they chose.

      It does look rather cult-ish. Almost like satire of a cult. It’s weird.

    • equality says:

      Curious about how exactly you look “cultish”?

      • windyriver says:

        I think off-putting is a good description. It’s a combination of the optical illusion around her shoulders, the gold necklace, her expression looking up – and also the choice of background. Overall, it’s just a weird vibe. But I also wasn’t a fan of the rest of the Variety photos, such as the backgrounds for the dress poses. The hot air balloon shell, the sheer fabric in front of the hedge, plus the soft focus areas. Nothing to do with Meghan. IMO the photographer and stylists were trying too hard to be “artistic”. I liked the Cut pictures much better.

        On the other hand – I thought the Variety article was great, while I’m one who found the tone of the Cut article surprisingly snarky.

      • Afken says:

        idk about cultish but I think when it comes to the sussexes, some photographers for U.S. publications still seem heavily invested in the fantasy of them, rather than them as people. That’s what I felt with their TIME photoshoot where I think the photographer realised what a coup he’d got as that was basically their first official photoshoot since leaving. The same goes for these Meghan pics. They seem really invested in omg we got the princess, so we need to make her look like a princess. I understand what they were going for with the Cut cover and don’t mind it as much.
        I prefer when people who see them as people take their pics though. The archetypes cover photo is one of Meg’s best. and the casual photo of Harry at the Better Up conference is great too,

      • TeamMeg says:

        I hate that Variety cover photo, too. It has an evangelical vibe. The background reminds me of a Jehova’s Witness pamphlet. Very strange.

    • girl_ninja says:

      She looks beautiful. You are trying to hard to make it into something though.

    • Malificent says:

      I agree that it’s an odd and awkward photo. Nobody is trashing Meghan. We’re just saying that it’s a weird editorial choice for the magazine to select that image for their cover, especially when Meghan is so photogenic.

    • Carrie says:

      I LOVE Meghan but I hate the top two photographs. She is beautiful and they have managed to make her look weird.

    • AuntRara says:

      I agree. I’ve been on this site for YEARS and Harry and Meghan are my favorites. Meghan looks beautiful as always in the photo. But I hate the styling, which has nothing to do with her and is not a criticism of her.

    • Teagirl says:

      Steph said it reminds her of a sculpture bust. Me too. Although facing in a different direction, it reminds me very much of the famous bust of Nefertiti. Every time I see the photos of Meghan from this magazine, I am immediately reminded of this bust. Perhaps it’s the graceful features and the lovely neck, I’m not sure. Perhaps it’s how regal it is.

      • MoBiMom says:

        Huh…. that’s an interesting take…. gonna think about it this way from now on. I can definitely see why it strikes you that way.

      • Steph says:

        The bust of Nefertiti is EXACTLY what I was thinking about. I grew up with a replica in my house send it was the first thing I thought of when I first saw these pics.

    • ChillinginDC says:

      Yeah a bunch of us were like what in the world when it came out. I loved her other photos but that cover was a miss for me. I told someone it reminded me of that Apprentice episode years ago when they were doing a Wheaties commercial. The frame is wonky and I hated the necklace they chose.

    • tamsin says:

      I saw another version of the cover and you can see the sleeve of her jumpsuit. The version we saw her made Meghan’s shoulders melt into the color of the background and made her ook like she had tiny shoulders, the effect of not seeing the edge of her sleeveless outfit. I was taken aback a bit myself when I first saw the picture on this site. It’s a stunning photo of Megan when you see a slightly wider shot. Don’t know what the actual cover looks like though.

    • Deb says:

      I dislike both of the photos. The one you mention much more so, but even the other one… Why make her look like a doll instead of a woman?

  6. Layla says:

    Excited for everything coming up!!!
    Also that picture of Meghan in that beautiful Jason wu gown instantly gives me flashbacks to he pre-duchess days and my God, am I relived and grateful to see that she’s been able to get back to being herself freely after all the b-s and toxicity she’s had to endure

  7. Steph says:

    How does a network make that kind of error? Curious indeed.

    The Windsors aren’t going to have any room to breathe until like February. 😂

    There are still more Archetype eps (don’t know how many though), the Ripple Awards, the docuseries, then the book, plus whatever publicity they do. It’s going to be funny watching them meltdown.

    @kaiser what’s the publishing schedule this week? Tomorrow then off until Monday?

    Happy holidays, Celebitches!!

    • Becks1 says:

      There’s only one more episode of Archetypes for this season (after the episode that came out today.)

    • Nic919 says:

      I find that NBC mistake weird as well. It is not unusual for certain guests to be originally scheduled for a talk show and then change last minute because of something coming up. Usually they don’t announce guests this far in advance though. And it’s clear it wasn’t finalized when they had to retract it so shortly after.

      And then there is page six seemingly knowing what Netflix will do. So I have to wonder who is leaking this information. Netflix usually has a coordinated announcement about their programs. That someone is trying to get this info prior to that shows that there is a lot of interest in this docu series.

      • Ginger says:

        Agreed. It makes sense for her to be on the show on the 7th if the docu series is coming out on the 8th ( and they will already be in NYC) Omid said it was to promote this series. When Meghan was on Ellen, no one knew until a clip was released. NBC was too early.

  8. Maxine Branch says:

    I am just happy theSussexes are thriving. Interestingly, the gutter press brigade is doing back flips over every appearance and utterance by this couple, while synonymously writing they are sick of seeing or hearing from them. They need to accept the Sussexes are the only interesting thing to come out of that sordid institution.

  9. Louise177 says:

    I could be wrong but I think a lot of people are going to be disappointed with the show. I think it’s going to be about them not the Royals. They will probably mentioned a few times but I can’t imagine that it’s going to be the takedown many are expecting/hoping for.

    • Amy Bee says:

      Only the royalists and the British press think that this is going to be a takedown. Let them stew in their disappointment.

    • Becks1 says:

      I don’t expect it to be a takedown at all, so I’m not going to be disappointed on that front.

    • Polo says:

      I’ve seen literally NO ONE expect it to be a takedown on the royals. They have always said and Meghan herself has said that the doc is about Harry/Meghan and their new life. Will the other royals be mentioned in passing? Probably but this is specifically about them.

      Harry’s book on the other hand I’ve seen some people assume it will be a “ takedown” and that I’m not completely sure because if it’s similar to Oprah…Harry telling his story could be considered a takedown by British media.

    • Jais says:

      Seems a little premature to expect disappointment. I can’t wait!!!

    • Lissen says:

      Disappointed? Nope, not me. I like love stories, especially this one.

    • Eurydice says:

      Oh sure, the BM and royal experts are praying it will be a takedown – so many blaring headlines and chat show interviews. Instead, they’ll be reduced to general sneering and nitpicking every word, just as they do every week with Archetypes.

    • Snuffles says:

      Well, I personally, don’t want to see anything about the royals. I want to see Harry and Meghan’s love story and how they have built their new life in California.

      Only a royalist thinks that the monarchy is the center of the universe.

    • Steph says:

      I want expecting it to be about The Royals. I’m mostly expecting it to be about their love story and the lifestyle transition for Harry. I expect royalty, in general to be brought up, but nothing too specific about the family.

    • MsIam says:

      We won’t be disappointed. Frankly I’m sick the other bunch in the UK and I’m happy to focus on the positive royals. Harry and Meghan had their Oprah moment and said their piece, it’s time to move on, as others keep claiming.

    • AuntRara says:

      I have no expectation that it will be a take-down in any sense. I’m excited to see them thriving and hear more of their story in their own voices. But I’m not expecting it to touch on either of their families much.

    • Athena says:

      The interest is in Meghan and Harry not the royals, no one is watching this documentary to hear about the royals, only the royals think everything is or should be about them.

      • one of the marys says:

        Exactly Athena. They’re still not resigned to Harry and Meghan fixing their focus elsewhere. If William and Catherine could see a day or a week in the life of the Sussex duo they’d be blown away.

  10. Amy Bee says:

    Where’s the trailer?

  11. Eurydice says:

    Lol, I love how the DM hyperventilates – OMG, we suffered through a “confusing series of unfortunate events”!!

  12. Becks1 says:

    YAAAAAASSSS We have a release date!!! The timing makes perfect sense, a few weeks after Archetypes ends (probably a month after it was supposed to end, without the pause for the Queen’s death?) and a month before Harry’s memoir comes out. it also coincides perfectly with the ripple of hope award, which we know they accepted back in March, right?

    this really is shaping up to be the Autumn/Winter of Sussex and I am Here.For.It.

    • SAS says:

      I have no doubt we’re going to have Sussexes for all seasons between now and Invictus next year and I CAN’T WAIT!!!

    • Nic919 says:

      I’m going to wait for more official confirmation about the release date because it’s odd for Netflix to just let page six leak this without any confirmation or denial.

      Maybe it’s the correct date, but page six is a murdoch publication and I always side eye them.

      • Afken says:

        They were right about Harry’s book date and also that harry was writing one in the first place, unfortunately. I hope they are able to plug these leaks. It shows how obsessive the media is about them but it must be frustrating, like not even the Obama’s *release dates* were leaked. Projects were announced etc but dates they’re dropping? Like what the hell.

      • Kingston says:

        @Afken

        Yeah….thats because page 6’s snitch is very much in the dark and only knows that something is gonna happen the day before it does. So the page 6 snitch called page 6 the day before the official announcement to say: “its gonna drop tomorrow” and voila! to the uninitiated , it seems that page 6 has good inside snitches.

        Its a credit to all the producers on H&M’s projects (H’s publisher; H&M’s docu,, etc) that they have such a tight lockdown on all things H&M so that no one on the inside……not even the most depraved employee, gets a long enough heads-up to be able to leak to anyone on the outside until the 11th hour.

      • windyriver says:

        The date may be accurate. I remembered Omid mentioning something about it; it was in his 11/4 piece about Harry’s book. He said the book “will be released one month after the Sussexes’ forthcoming Netflix docuseries drops”. The book, we now know, is coming out 1/10. So Page Six isn’t the only outlet that potentially has information. Maybe Netflix is waiting until after Archetypes wraps next week to confirm anything?

      • Nic919 says:

        It was the New York Times article that confirmed the date for the book. Page six was just guessing until that story came out.
        @windyriver. Omid already suggested December as when the docu series would come out. Perhaps this is an educated guess that they will release it when they are in NYC. It’s just odd that Netflix released dates for shows for December today and nothing is listed there.

  13. Esmeralda says:

    This doesn’t feel malicious, I think someone at NBC just got excited and jumped the gun while negotiations were ongoing.

    I’m a bit puzzled over Netflix’s handling of the docu-series: no trailer? No promotion?

    • Amy Bee says:

      The British press has done all the promo for them.

      • Becks1 says:

        Right???

        Besides, at this point I think its pretty well established that H&M’s projects can be successful with very little promotion.

    • tamsin says:

      Very intriguing. I read the press release and it sounded very amateurish- almost as though it were written by some kid in high school. And I don’t think anything is 100% unless Netflix actually makes an announcement. No other productions seem to have these kinds of “leaks.”

  14. lleepar says:

    I remember during EIIR’s jubilee that the Brit media regaled us with the royal effort to make sure the Sussexes didn’t get one image or soundbite of the British pomp and grandeur that could be used by Netflix. So who’s going to be disgruntled if the royals are largely glossed over and rendered irrelevant in the Sussexes’s Netflix offering?

    • Harla A Brazen Hussy says:

      That’s what I’m hoping for, not one word about Harry’s family, not one word.

    • Lissen says:

      Yes, The Sussexes don’t need to say a single word about the brf.

      The fact that they’re living well in their life of service + being happy = complete and total repudiation of everything the brf stands for.

  15. Susan says:

    Okay, so please indulge me in speculation, I CANNOT WAIT.

    I don’t watch reality TV (or much TV for that matter because of my job/life situation) but what do you think the tone/vibe will be like? Will it be narrated? Will it be a “day in the life” like Nick and Jessica were? Or later in Newlyweds, remember when they took “trips” or did activities together for episodes? Will it be them telling stories (like the Real World used to do in the confessional room?) I’m dating myself with my references to television aren’t I? LOL.

    • Steph says:

      I think we might get one day in the life type episode but mostly it’s going to show their teamwork. Like how they start a project and get to it’s final execution. I don’t think they’ll be a specific time frame in exchange episode. I also think we’ll see their love story throughout and how transitioning to their new life played out.

    • Afken says:

      It might be like Jose Andres’ We Feed People, following mostly on work, but interviewing a couple of people in their lives, and using news reel footage for background.

      or Michelle Obama’s Becoming but I found that a little slow to get into.

      I’m liking that it’s a docu-series though instead of a 90 minute documentary. The more Sussex the better

  16. Aurora says:

    I find it curious that we haven’t had any official word from Netflix or the Sussexes’ spokesperson about the show. Everything has been leaks and hearsay mostly from Page Six.

  17. Nicki says:

    I hope it’s anyone but Colbert. He’s a genuinely terrible interviewer. He can’t seem to allow a rhythm to be established and repeatedly details the flow. Seth Meyers has the best interviews, imho.

    • sevenblue says:

      I noticed that Colbert does a good job if he is interested in the person (or their promotional work) he’s talking to. If not, he just follows through the questions written by staff, which makes him look like an amateur. Seth is very good, but hands down, the best is Trevor Noah.

    • SomeChick says:

      if we’re talking interviewers, I would really like to see Meghan, Harry, or both of them together on Hot Ones! it’s a silly concept but Sean is a fantastic interviewer and the show is really enjoyable. both of them together would be the best!

      • JD says:

        Yes! Good call. Sean is the most amazing interviewer. I would love to see an ep w H&M on together. Salt Island would submerge into the ocean.

  18. Maxine Branch says:

    I enjoy seeing beautiful women in various poses. To me it is down to interpretation, I like and also enjoy how photos are interpreted by others. At the end of the day, Meghan is gorgeous and allowed to be seen in different setting in different poses and it gives folks plenty to talk about, which I think is her reason for allowing such photos to go to print. She approved these photos and accomplished the goal of conversation around them. There are so many ways to be strategic and I do believe the Sussexes have mastered it.

  19. BeanieBean says:

    How many times could the DM use the word ‘furious’ in their article about Meghan? What awful people, just full-on propaganda artists. And how about they slid on past their own lie, about it being delayed/canceled due to CIIIs hurt feelings? Despicable.

  20. Kingston says:

    So I just made a post which was prolly too long so it disappeared. Let me repost in 2 parts.:

    ………………………………………………………….

    Does any CBer know if theres any academic institution……or grp of socio-political analysts….etc……that have discussed the phenom of H&M’s……..unprecedented act of walking away from THEEE british royal institution and the actual reasons H&M have given so far for why they did it?

    Because it seems to me this is a huge story, with historical importance. And its why the britshidtmedia have been so relentlessly doing the bidding of their masters in palaces to muddy the waters surrounding H&M………its all for posterity.

    If no such discussion/study is taking place, there could be a couple of reasons for this but mainly, that its a reflection of the extent to which the british royal institution and its actors are seen for the toothless, anachronistic, continuous historical re-enactment that they are.
    Theres also a more serious and sinister reason, and H has hinted at this many times with the seriousness with which he takes the question of his little family’s security. He knows they can get to them at any time, as they have all of the state’s security apparatus at their fingertips. And, therefore, so too can they get to anyone who criticises them…..hence the silence from would-be critics.

    Add that to the fact that H KNOWS that they were literally planning for a similar outcome for M as for Diana. And even tho they were using the same playbook, they were hoping for a diff method (not car crash but suicide) to give themselves plausible deniability.

    …/2

  21. Kingston says:

    2/

    It hasnt escaped me that in the O interview, H said from BEFORE they got married (but, of course, AFTER he and M became engaged and, in other words, shidt got real) he could see, just from the reception they were getting that “this was going to be hard.” (Rmbr Diana said she was welcomed as a girlfriend but that changed after the wedding.)

    This is one of the seaming discrepancies that royalists pounce on to say M was “lying”….because she said the color-of-the-baby conversation and the no title-for-Archie conversation happened while she was pregnant, but that H said it began before they got married. Those m0r0ns completely ignore all the things H had been saying were going on and that his people were talking to him about, not all of which he relayed back to M in real time.

    The conversations between him and the snr courtiers and the snr royals were: that they didnt have money to support M; that she should keep her acting job; that they were thinking of changing the letters patent that would confer the title of prince or princess on H&M’s baby, WHEN CHARLES BECAME KING; etc.

    Anyhooooo…….this is why I’m looking forward to H’s book. Because while the Netflix docu-series will focus on their life and work and what theyve built together so far in such a short time, the Memoir will reveal a LOT of the shidt-behind-the-brf-curtain.

    The Memoir and the Docu will be PERFECT bookends to the story of H&M’s entry into and exit from the BRF.

    They gave themselves room to breathe and turn the spotlight on the rabid institutional dogs by doing the O interview; Covid gave H&M (and the rest of us) room to rest, recoup, plan and lay a solid foundation. And since 2021 theyve been building.

    We’ll see the fruits of their labour, their reach (i:e global) and their network, with the Docu.

    • TheVolvesSeidr says:

      H&M are definitely getting their record out in the public for the historical record. People seem to get so jammed up about them and say Meghan is all ego, but it’s not. This is RF history and just like US presidents have to save and submit *all* written material from their term, every single thing the RF jots down is saved and cataloged. H&M have to do this because it’s the truth and it’s history being made. I agree w/ your comment 100% @Kingston

    • aftershocks says:

      Yes, a book by two academic sociologists was published in 2020 discussing systemic racism in Britain as it connects to Meghan’s experience after marrying into British royalty. I’ve mentioned the book here previously. It’s fairly dry and overly reliant on Internet and tabloid articles. Plus, even more has happened since that book’s publication. I agree that M&H’s love story and Meghan’s experience of racism within the ancient firm are hugely relevant in connection to contemporary culture and historical underpinnings. I think it will take awhile for socio-historical works of depth and relevance to be produced regarding the Sussexes. Things are happening too fast at the moment.

      The best thing to do right now is to collect and reflect upon all the series of events, Twitter threads, relevant articles of any depth on the Internet, and especially wait for Harry’s book, and the upcoming documentary. The Oprah interview is also a significant historical document. Meghan is sure to write a memoir too at some future date. CB archives are going to be hugely relevant as real-time documentation. Plus, there are numerous positive podcasts about the Sussexes that offer a chronology of events, etc. There’s also an interactive website which details major life events for the Sussexes, individually and together.

        Thanks for this important overview, @aftershocks. In addition to being experts at getting rid of their enemies while keeping their hands clean, the british royal institution is also quite expert at writing their own history from their perspective.

        Rmbr: ‘history is written by the victors.’

        So its really important that H&M and those of us who support them, document the truth about all thats happened.

      • aftershocks says:

        ^^ Exactly @Kingston. And thankfully that is happening. It began with the organic movement on Twitter circa Fall 2018, when observers said, ‘Heck No! Not on our watch! You will not abuse and scapegoat a woman of color and get away with it! We will not allow that to happen. We will push back. We will bring the receipts!’ And that movement took off and led to the development of the original Sussex Squad Podcast by Tina & Michelle, a fierce and fabulous harbinger of so many more Sussex podcasts to come. Plus, the 2019 Sussex Squad baby shower fundraiser for Archie, the first of so many amazing fundraising drives launched by Sussex supporters. This is living history in action. 🌟 ❤️‍🔥

    *cackles* YES. Take THAT Salt Island. Crying salty years when Harry and Meghan show how above it they are and really show that family what they’re missing. Can’t wait for endless outfit inspo🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻 I wonder what she wears around the house?!

    Checking with my children to see which one has a Netflix account.

    Meghan may have tentatively agree to go on Jimmy Fallon on the 7th but with the award ceremony in NY on the six had to reschedule and someone at the show jumped the gun. Would love to see her make the rounds of the NY talk shows, skipping The View of course.

    I need an actual comedy to get me outta my holiday depression, I get the blues from now until after mid January, happens like clockwork.

    I am burned out with ALL the BRF.

    H&M are doing fine. More power to them. They will bag huge ratings I’m sure.

  27. Jessica says:

    I hope she’s not going on Fallon. I can’t stand watching him, he is the worst of the late night hosts. Go on Colbert or Seth meyers, please!

  28. QuiteContrary says:

    This is going to be must-see TV. Harry and Meghan are just so sweet together.

    Maybe I am projecting here, but those big emerald earrings seem a bit of F U to the Royal Family for denying her the request to wear the tiara with the emeralds for her wedding. (Allegedly I have no idea if any of that story is true or smear gossip). That the Queen let Princess Eugenie wear or her wedding.

    If so good for MM or maybe MM isn’t as petty as I am lol and it’s just a nice pair of earrings.

    • Saucy&Sassy says:

      AppleCart, are they emerald? When I see those earrings, I think that they’re not Meghan. I wonder if they was supplied by the photographer?

      • AppleCart says:

        It doesn’t look photoshopped to me. And I have to assume any photos or covers of MM would need to be approved by her and/or PR team. I can’t see them throwing a pair of earrings on her. Especially since if they are not sourced properly could be an issue (see all of the RF stolen jewels scandals) Personally, I think they are gorgeous. And the Queen should have let her wear the emerald tiara. Would have looked so much better on her than Eugenie.

    • aftershocks says:

      ^^ @Applecart, FYI– Meghan got to wear the tiara she wanted. That emerald tiara story nonsense was entirely made up.
