Tominey: Prince Harry & Meghan ‘could be a poster couple for workshy Britain’

The Telegraph’s Camilla Tominey is frantic. When Prince Harry showed up unexpectedly at a London High Court last week, Tominey could not contain her rage and fury at Harry for daring to stand up to a British tabloid. She barfed out an especially crazy piece about how Harry is a piece of sh-t for calling out the Daily Mail and calling out his father, who hires senior staff straight from the Mail’s editorial board. Tominey even admitted that Harry’s work-trip to London last week “would almost certainly have upstaged the King’s European charm offensive.” Camilla Tominey is such a loser and she defends losers. Well, she had another column in the Telegraph where she latched onto the Daily Mail’s “exclusive” story about the Duke and Duchess of Sussex’s Archewell charity tax filing, wherein they claimed (for tax purposes) that they worked one hour a week on Archewell’s charity arm. Behold, I give you “Harry and Meghan could be a poster couple for workshy Britain.” Sub-head: “But when it comes to self promotion, no one can doubt that the publicity shy couple have put in the hours.” Here’s part of her piece:

We all know that productivity has gone down since the pandemic…But who knew that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex would have what it takes to become a poster-couple for workshy Britain, even after they left the UK to become “financially independent” in the United States?

The revelation that they last year carried out just one hour’s work a week for the Archewell Foundation, their non-profit organisation, has naturally been seized upon by the sort of people who revelled in that South Park episode. To be fair to the Duke and Duchess, it is standard practice for directors in the US to list their hours, as they have done on these newly released tax records.

Moreover, we can hardly say that they haven’t been busy since they stepped back as working royals – what with their Oprah Winfrey interview, their six-part Netflix documentary and Prince Harry’s autobiography, Spare.

Indeed, the Duke has also been occupied at the High Court this week, bravely setting aside his security concerns to join a group of well-known faces in suing Associated Newspapers Limited, the publisher of the Daily Mail and Mail on Sunday, for allegedly stealing their private information, which the newspaper group denies.

Clearly, the amount of hard graft that is necessary, supposedly to protect one’s privacy, should not be underestimated.

In Harry and Meghan’s case, it has involved the traducing of a great many people to generate the requisite number of headlines to show just how intrusive the press can apparently be. We must never forgive the sacrifices they have made in the name of global royal reporting.

To be a royal is to be duty-bound in pursuit of the service of others, but Harry and Meghan’s approach has been rather more self-serving than that. For when it comes to self promotion, no one can doubt that the couple have put the hours in.

[From The Telegraph]

Imagine writing this about two people who left the UK in 2020, had their security pulled, were in fear for their lives, and were simply trying to survive for months with the kindness of a relative stranger (Tyler Perry). And in three years, this is what Harry and Meghan have done: welcomed a second child and recovered from a miscarriage; bought a home; won at least two lawsuits against the Mail; produced a wildly successful memoir; produced a wildly successful Netflix docuseries; produced a wildly successful and award-winning podcast; taken a Chief Impact Officer position with a billion-dollar life-coaching business; made a successful investment in a small oat-latte business; built a charity which has already worked on several substantive projects with tangible objectives and raised millions of dollars as well as working with corporate sponsors; organized another successful Invictus Games despite a global pandemic; continued conservation work in Africa; built an actual business and charity from the ground up, and on and on. While I wish we saw more of Harry and Meghan too, what they’ve managed to accomplish in three years is amazing.

Imagine writing all of this snide bullsh-t about “work-shy” Meghan and Harry… and then having nothing to say about Prince William and Kate, who barely do one event a week and are currently on a month-long vacation. I guess someone’s buying it?

    Of course lazy keen and bill get free passes.

    • Couch Potato says:

      Yeah, even though according to the raging lunatic; “To be a royal is to be duty-bound in pursuit of the service of others”. That should be the ingress to an article called “Lazy and keen are on holiday again!” not about H&M.

      Yet again they seem to think they own Harry. There’s quite a few royals, even some in Britain, that make their own living and aren’t “in pursuite of the service of others”. Just because they are born with royal blood, doesn’t mean they aren’t free to do what they want. Even the heir is allowed to say NO. Adding that his father has made it clear he wants to streamline the monarchy, Harry should never have been brought in to be a senior royal in the first place. Then again, Chuck were planning to have him as an eternal whipping boy for Lazy. Let Harry do all the work, while Lazy and Keen take the credit. Keep him in a small cottage, without his own money, totally reliant on “dear papa” and later Willnot for the rest of his life. Instead the dear boy escaped and are thriving without them, without the rota getting any info. I don’t know how many times I’ve seen s$%% news about the RF and thought I am so glad H&M don’t have to answer for that!

    • The Recluse says:

      I’ve been reading SPARE. I have reached the part where he meets Meghan and just finished the part where he talks about how much Charles (and by then Camilla, too) were controlling how much attention his children (and Kate) were able to get from the press by simply ‘working’.
      Now that William, supposedly, has control of the resources from the Duchy of Cornwall (unless Charles has managed to withhold that too), it will be interesting to see over time how much the former Cambridges start to rebel against his control. I think it’s going to get more and more interesting, like Wars of the Roses interesting.

    • GrnieWnie says:

      Yes, very funny how they’ve entirely missed the point: H&M don’t live off the public purse and can work however much they want.

  2. Tessa says:

    This article is so delusional. The sussexes showed just how lazy the keen s are

    • Osty says:

      Exactly if only work for just 1 hr they could produce and raise so much shows how incompetent the rest are .

    • Tara says:

      Well, now it seems obvious – these articles are written with a couple in mind they can not rage against, and then projected onto the couple they have to rage against. Using a “persona” is an advised technique to come up with content.

    • AnnaKist says:

      I thought the same. Why is she bothering about two American residents when they have their very own global-brand, highly experienced, upper class work-shy, Duo, who have given new meaning to the term, “layabout”?

      The British Terrorgraph sounds as bad as the Sydney version. But really look at how these hacks are making their living. Tells us everything about them.

  3. ThatsNotOkay says:

    It’s funny that they don’t get the concept of having more than one job—and volunteering after work. H&M don’t take a salary from Archwell? That makes them like volunteers. The other stuff is the job, from which they get an income. So, in actuality, these people are Hard workers, taking lots of gigs to keep the money flowing. And THAT’S the difference between them and all other royals. Harry and Meghan earn their incomes and earn their keep. The others? Not so much or not at all.

    • Visa Diva says:

      Non profit board member aren’t allowed to get paid, and while it’s a volunteer position it’s a real job with legal and fiduciary obligations. From that perspective its no different than board members of corporations who do get paid. So yeah, they’re doin work others get paid for for free

  4. equality says:

    But for W&K simply raising their own children counts as work. “Traducing” is a word that CT should be well acquainted with.

    • Keri says:

      You can practically see the bitterness dripping from Camel Toe’s forked tongue onto the page as she writes. She’s practically foaming at the mouth and I love that for her.

    • notasugarhere says:

      Except as we all know, CT included, W&K don’t raise their own children. W&K have an army of nannies, starting from day one when they lied about having a night nurse AND one of William’s childhood nannies from the start.

      W&K have a separate housekeeper, cook, cleaners, and gardeners for *each property* so they aren’t doing any of the housework. W&K don’t arrange their own ‘work’, don’t plan their own schedules, someone else manages all of their home and office staff.

      And W&K don’t pay for any of it, including their massive annual travel (work and personal) or security bills.

      • Nic919 says:

        Hands on parents would have prevented a 4 year old from acting out as he did because they would read his discomfort right away instead of just ignoring it. Especially as the third child when things like this would have been learned from the hands on raising of the other two kids and how they respond to stress and public events.

      • teecee says:

        All rich people, especially famous ones, have nannies or some other kind of caregiver. You cannot have that much work and travel responsibility and be there every day for your kids, not unless you take them with you everywhere you go, and that’s both impractical and bad for the kids’ interpersonal relationships with peers. The Sussexes, Obamas, Angelina, every high profile person you admire has hired help. Even lower key celebs like Amy Poehler have this kind of staff , so of course the mega famous have it, too.

        The real issues are that W&K don’t have the same level of public or work responsibilities of the other people they are classes with, and that taxpayers foot the bill for all these services. In the case of the Obamas or other political figures, taxpayers are only on the hook for child rearing costs during a relatively short period of time, if at all.

      • Bee says:

        The Obamas had Michelle’s mom. Which counts as help but seems pretty outside the scope of what you’re saying here. I don’t think they need to be part of this conversation.

      • notasugarhere says:

        We don’t know what staff Sussex Family have. They had one nanny in the UK when Archie was born, but she didn’t move with them to California. If Harry and Meghan mostly work from home, the kids are in daycare/preschool, and they have Doria as backup for the rare times they’re both out at work, etc.

      • kirk says:

        “In the case of the Obamas or other political figures, taxpayers are only on the hook for child rearing costs…”

        Actually, US publicly supported persons receive a salary, from which they decide how much to allocate to childcare. I am completely unaware of any elected office in the US that includes a childcare stipend. Correct me if I’m wrong.

      • Typical Virgo says:

        @Notasugarhere- W&K definitely do not pay for their own massive travel and security costs, UK taxpayers pay for most of it, except when they’re in the US, and its US citizens paying their security costs.

        All in all, GOD FORBID the royals raking in £40 million a year in UNEARNED income, pay their own security……

    • Whyforthelove says:

      OK the insults to H&M are unhinged as usual…is this lady OK? But “Workshy Britain?” From what I have read and seen reported, people are unemployed, starving and had no heat for the winter and she wants to insult H&M by calling them the poster Children for all of these suffering families in “Workshy Britain?” What a complete &itch! These families are suffering because of this unhinged lady’s Tory friends in the Brexit mania. H&M help more people in a day than this crazy woman has helped in her life

      • Totorochan says:

        This is all a very deliberate strategy by Tories and other right of centre governments, helped greatly by the tabloids and also the upmarket right-wing press. Demonize the poor, the disabled, the elderly, immigrants, with phrases like workshy and scroungers and dole cheats and so on and on. It’s so important to convince the public that the people holding them back in life are those who are even poorer and more helpless than they are – not the rich, not CEOs, not bankers, not hedge fund managers, not Tories, not aristocrats, not royals. Misdirection, and it works very well.

    • Emme says:

      @ Feeshallori, Tominey is an admitted “recovering” alcoholic. Don’t know about meds……

    • Agreatreckoning says:

      The byline of CT’s columns should be Camilla Traducing.

      So, when a RR or member of the BM share multiple video clips of themselves on a show (or their own show), or announce they’re going to be on a show, have a book coming out…what’s that called? Could be wrong, but it sounds a lot like self-promotion.

      The Sussexes are far from ‘workshy’.

  5. Ginger says:

    They are SO jealous of Harry and Meghan. They hate how successful they have become outside of the RF.

    • Exactly the jealousy runs deep!

      • Sugarhere says:

        The fact is that the Sussexes have secured conjugal, financial and reputational successes that overthrow both royal and media failure predictions, hence the haters’ bitterness. They didn’t believe in a zillion years Henry and Meghan would have enough charisma and philanthropic consistency to radiate star power.

        The detractors are being proven so wrong, they’re left with nothing but manipulative fact reversal and projecting the Wailses’ sloth on their opposite counterparts. Tominey’s rant sounds completely bereft of elementary logics: if the Sussexes have achieved so much without the blessings and logistics of an entire Firm, what does it say about the monarchy’s usefulness and relevancy? If William and Catherine have achieved so little despite the Firm’s logistics, what does it tell the world about their character?

      • The Old Chick says:

        We know the Sussexes have nannies. At least one and likely a second. They can’t do the work without that kind of help. It was mentioned in one article and in the doc series we saw what looked like a nanny or help. There’s nothing wrong with nannies at all, and wank do need some help. But wank pretend they’re hands on, they can’t work for 10 years because ‘Kate is raising her children full time’. It’s a lie people believe. Nanny Maria is the only one mentioned but we know they have more.

        I’ve always believed the Sussexes have plenty of help given how much work they do. They have a huge property so inside staff and outside staff and nannies. But they pay for them themselves. Not the British taxpayer. But that they also have a life balance working from home more, playing with the kids, lots of family time, teaching them etc. Unlike wank.

    • BothSidesNow says:

      @ Ginger, CamelToe received her marching orders so she must comply.

      And yet she sounds more delusional and unhinged with ever article that she writes…..CamelToe needs help!!

  6. JMmoney says:

    Immediately after Meghan’s win with the DM Tominey wrote s out how it “wasn’t really a win” even though it was.

    The RR are pr for the monarchy and the British tabloids that pay their bills. It’s interesting just how diff the tabloids treat KC3 when he was PoW compared to Billy. For instance, everyone knew about Camilla yet with Billy there’s a literal ban in place from mentioning Rose’s name in the tabloids and the mention of any affair …

    • Mary Pester says:

      Oy, camel toe, please tell us how many hours you “work” a week. I don’t mean how many hours you sit at your desk spewing venom at a couple you don’t know, I mean actually “work”? (oh sorry I should have said as the Palace paid troll!
      Do you do charity work, again, not as a little snide bch.
      Do you visit refugee camps,
      Do you visit desaster areas
      Do you offer comfort to families that have suffered from child loss
      Do you visit homeless people
      Do you work in food banks or deliver food packages to housebound people.
      Have you set up a charity
      Have you continued to expand invictus
      Have you written a book
      Have you held down a job like in better up
      Have you toured the country promoting your book (that you haven’t written)
      Have you travelled to Africa for charity work
      Have you travelled to new Zealand for work
      Guess your answer to these and many more questions is NO!
      SO until you can say YES to many of them, SIT THE FK DOWN AND SHUT THE FK UP.

  7. Noor says:

    What’s wrong with Britain? Just look at Camilla Tominey, Piers Morgan , Dan Wotton, Lady Colin Campbell, Tom Bowers, Robert Jobson, Valentine Low etc and you will find the answers .

    • Eurydice says:

      Yes, if we look at their list of accomplishments over the past several years – wrote nasty articles about H&M, wrote more nasty articles about H&M, said nasty things on the air about H&M, hired Meghan’s father to say nasty things about H&M, got fired for saying nasty things about Meghan, wrote even more nasty articles….nasty, nasty, nasty…

    • Mary Pester says:

      @NOOR, jealousy and spite, that’s what’s wrong with this country, that along with hopeing for medals, which they won’t get, or maybe an invite to the clowning so they can drool over the REALLY workshy Royals

    • Whyforthelove says:

      Right?!? What meaningful accomplishments have any of these Rota Rats had besides stalking Meghan and Harry

  8. Feebee says:

    I think we need to be prepared for more articles with this sort of petty, nasty, bitchy tone as the various lawsuits move forward and the build up to the Coronation gets crazy.

    • Debbie says:

      In other words, you mean, no change from the past few years since Meghan arrived on their shores? Got it.

  9. Jais says:

    This is utterly ridiculous. Archwell is clearly not the only thing the sussexes do. Camilla Tominey needs help. She just keeps outing herself as a bitter and vindictive person. There is something really wrong with her. She got used to spread lies by KP with the bridesmaid crying story and rather than be mad at the people who used her, she’s going even harder after the victim of that story. CT pedaled the angry black woman trope and now she’s doing the lazy work-shy angle. She better hope karma doesn’t come for her cuz it’s gonna be bad.

    • notasugarhere says:

      IMO she was used by Kate and the Midds. The quadrupling down on the crying lies, complete with Uncle Gary in the mix, wasn’t coming out of KP.

    • Debbie says:

      You know, a person could easily get whiplash at the BM’s ever-changing narratives around the Sussexes. So, now we’re expected to believe that Meghan, the woman who is so serious about her work that she gets up early to prepare and sends an email at 5 am to staff from overseas, is now “workshy” eh? Sure Jan.

    • Christine says:

      Not to mention, the welfare royals report things like Zoom calls with advisors to get their pathetic numbers out of the double digits every year. It’s unbelievable that anyone would attempt to paint Harry and Meghan as lazy, when the Wails are digging in the sofa cushions to pad their numbers every year.

  10. Hail says:

    Tominey forgets to tell her readers that an hour of work each week for a non profit foundation is the standard for all directors of foundations. Harry and Meghan don’t “work” for their non profit foundation, neither do they receive a pay check. The foundation paid a total $163,085 on salaries, $59,846 went to the chief executive James Holt and the rest towards program services and management. The invictus games, travlyst, african national parks, and better up are Harry’s work and he only gets paid for better up. So no, working 1 hr at a non profit foundation where you don’t get paid does not make you a poster boy of being work shy. Deciding not to “work” during your children’s half terms and spring breaks then spending the entire summer on vacation makes you the poster boy of workshy. If all Harry spends his time on is self promotion, what the hell do the Windsors do?

  11. Nic919 says:

    The level of projection to cover for the tax payer funded couple that is always on holiday is really astounding.

    • BothSidesNow says:

      Wait until they turn on her, which they will. WanK and Mumbles McButtons always go rogue without a second thought. Camel Toe had better be careful…..

  12. Osty says:

    Delusional and foolish camilla should mind her biz and concentrate on the royals they have since after all the ” hard work ” they do can’t achieve a quarter of what Harry did . Sophie and her husband brought in less than 500 pounds in a whole Yr, kate and her house mate wasted more than they raised and Charles begged for money from questionable places . She should audit that and leave Harry and meghan who don’t live there alone

  13. ML says:

    Harry wrote a book. Meghan and Harry appeared in a Netflix series. So, out of curiosity, I wonder how CamelToe would feel if people actively tried to discount any print or film work *she* does as work? H&M have a podcast, disabled veterans’ games, other charities, mental health… This is probably working in the UK, because they keep harping on it, but if any of those RR reporters were to actually write about how much work W&K charities it would look like a scheme to defraud taxes.

  14. Brassy Rebel says:

    If they did nothing but sit around watching daytime talk shows everyday, they couldn’t be the poster couple for “work shy Britain” (she’s insulting the hard working people of Britain!) because William and Kate who actually live there already have the title in perpetuity.

  15. Noor says:

    Camilla’s article just remind people that the couple that has actually earned the reputation of being workshy are William and Kate who absent themselves from royal engagements during school holidays, enjoy school term breaks, and Summer holidays, winter breaks just like school children.

  16. Miranda says:

    So what, exactly, do Camel Toe and her ilk expect the left-behinds to do once Charles “slims down” the monarchy (a move that they will no doubt fall all over themselves to praise as “thrifty” and “modernizing”)? There’s gonna be a whole lot of sidelined royals diving into individual, self-promoting projects, and in most cases, it’s going to be tacky, low-rent shit. Zara’s husband has already started, FFS. Fergie got the jump on everybody and started pretty much the moment her divorce came through. Judging by their constant meltdowns over the Sussexes’ successful, on-the-level efforts, whatever we have to look forward to from the likes of, say, Paedrew is going to cause the collective BM to have an aneurysm (if only, amiright?).

  17. LadyO says:

    I can’t read her shit anymore.

    • one of the marys says:

      I found it hard to read. I couldn’t understand the half of it or where she was going. It’s poorly written

  18. Eurydice says:

    Lol, CT – keep raving. If anything, H&M are the poster couple for “show, don’t tell.”

  19. Amy Bee says:

    Camilla’s piece made absolutely no sense and contradicted another Telegraph piece on Archewell’s tax returns which said that it’s standard for Directors of charities to put they work one hour week for the charity on their tax returns. Furthermore she neglects to mention that it’s the British press who keep Harry and Meghan in the headlines even when they haven’t been seen for months. Camilla should be paying attention to how much the Queen Consort and the Wales work because there’s no doubt that Harry and Meghan work a lot more than them.

  20. girl_ninja says:

    We know that Cam the Hag would have a pathetic and hypocritical write up about how Harry and Meghan don’t work. It’s more pathetic than I expected because of course she’s really described Willy and Waity and their non-working asses.

    The Sussex’s have a foundation they started that does meaningful work and gives out funds to assist so many. The Other Brother and his lady in Waiting, vacation, over-Botox, flip flap jacks incorrectly, acquire house after house and have affairs. There is no competition. Never was.

  21. CrazyHeCallsMe says:

    Work shy people can’t afford to wear Dior clothing. Tominey and the rest of the Rota Rats are bitter and mad that they’re stuck with boring, do little Royals who are so uninteresting no one cares about them. They all know H&M’s Star power and work ethic that’s why they can’t stop writing and talking about them.

  22. Cathy says:

    Poor CamelToe. If only Harry wasn’t correctly the lies *cough cough* I mean stories she was making up (I mean writing) then she too could be one of the work shy and only work 1 hour a month. But Harry being Harry likes the truth. She must curse him as she now has to actually leave the house in search of stories? Poor CamelToe.

    This leaves her no time to get another bad dye job (or does my computer screen need colour correcting?)

  23. Snuffles says:

    Dear British Public,

    Are seriously still buying this bullshit? Because everything in this article is demonstrably false. Is the British Public so completely void of critical thinking skills that they buy whatever the press is feeding them?

    • Mary Pester says:

      @snuffles, a lot of us aren’t lovey, and I for one sit back and laugh at the sheer idiocy of this woman. She peddled a lie for years, but the other lie she has peddled for even longer is that she can write! Maybe she should borrow both Harry and Megan’s books from a library and learn how it’s done!!

      • Gabby says:

        Mary Pester, since you are in the UK and we know you can write, I would love to see you head over to the Telegraph and steal CT’s job out from under her. Then you can write subversive lie-free columns about the RF.

    • Patricia says:

      Mary Pester is a national treasure. I laugh, I cry, I thoroughly enjoy her writing! How about. H&M giving their tickets to the RoyaFUBAR to Mary and a guest? I would love to read Mary’s first hand report. She is a wonder!!!

  24. aquarius64 says:

    CT is mad because because Spare broke it down about Crygate, that Kate admitted she made Meghan cry before the wedding. The text exchange between Kate and Meghan about the bridesmaids’ dress fittings (printed in the Fail) only served to make Kate look like a witch and CT look like a fool for running that lie for two years. Throw in what Harry called her (without naming her) in Spare and CThas her reason to go after the Sussexes even harder. Whatever Camilla. Being a journalistic ride or die for the Crown only serves to damage your own professional reputation. By choosing to say on, even for the money, you only serve to damage it more.

  25. Trix says:

    This article is borderline libellous. I wish they’d sue her.

  26. Mari says:

    Why do they care?

    • Debbie says:

      Not only that but these same people in the British media have been whining for the past three years after the release of every work project by the Sussexes, whether it was paid work, contracts for jobs which the Sussexes have fulfilled or their charitable work. So, now CT pretends to have amnesia in order to fit that amateurish narrative masquerading as fact in the “1-hour Archwell” work? Ha, pull the other one.

  27. amy says:

    are they workshy? clearly not. can we compare them to regular people who work 50+ hours a week? probably not. are they great at self-promotion? absolutely yes, they have built an empire on this. so i don’t think all of what she says is false. her message is, however, clearly negative.

    • Jan says:

      I think you have to have something to promote.
      How do you know they’re working 50+ hours a week?

    • OriginalMich says:

      With all of the things they have accomplished in the last couple of years, they clearly work more than 50 hours a week. And it isn’t ‘self-promotion’ if the world’s press and the global public is fascinated by every single thing they do. Even going out to dinner makes headlines.

    • Debbie says:

      “They have built an empire on this [self-promotion].” I dare say that your “clearly negative” message is very clear too. From what I’ve seen, the Sussexes promote their work, or at times allow charities to do their own releases, whatever works better. The Sussexes don’t need to promote themselves, not when they’ve got all of the English media dreaming and drooling about what they’re doing 24/7, apparently. Let’s not forget, that wasn’t Archwell writing breathless articles about Harry’s court appearance or talking about him on British tv, and it’s not Archwell discussing whether or not the Sussexes will come to Charles’ dim Chubbly, the queen’s Jubbly, or whatever is going on in England — it’s the British media. And it’s not Archwell dragging Meghan’s name into every article about Kate’s 40th b-day, or saying what a big girl she is to be walking upright. So, there goes this flimsy theory about self-promotion.

    • Jaded says:

      They do not self-promote. In fact months go by without them promoting anything, they just work hard, get awards for their work and philanthropy, and sue gutter rags and bottom-feeders like Camel Toe who continue to print trash about them or use illegal means to invade their privacy.

    • teecee says:

      As someone who did once work in the fashion industry, the entertainment fields usually require more than 50 hours of work per week, not less. The 1% that everyone refers to isn’t slogging it out like working class people, but they’re still on the clock for that amount of time.

      And that’s to say nothing of the 99% (which I was one!) where you work like mad, get paid nothing, and still get sneered at by people like you who have comfortable desk jobs which frankly generally aren’t that challenging either. (And I speak from experience here again. I transitioned to the teaching and then corporate world and have found corporate life much easier by comparison. Teaching however is tough – kudos to those of you that manage it. I have all the respect in the world for you.)

  28. B says:

    Lol if tax records said they worked 0, 1 or 2 hrs so what? It’s their time on their dime. It doesn’t concern them. If you want to talk lazy I would look at CT and her ilk who only have 4 narratives and use them over & over whether it makes sense or not. The Sussexes aren’t tax payer funded so don’t worry about their so called “hours of engagement”.

    In Spare Harry mentioned how he would hate to be called lazy so maybe she thinks this will hurt him. Lol the idiot probably doesn’t realize her days of being relevant or influential are over and Harry doesn’t care what they write anymore. Additionally Harry is free and working to take “journalists” like CT down. She should focus on saving her skin & her coins. She’s going to need it.

  29. HeyKay says:

    Who is paying this person to write such trash?
    I’m guessing either Charles or Camilla. And it must be a huge amount of money.

  30. OriginalMich says:

    They also helped raise a fortune for vaccine equity and published a wildly successful children’s book.

    Tominy is a nut.

  31. TheOriginalMia says:

    Being called lazy by Workshy’s personal scribe is laughable. If Meghan doesn’t work another day in her life, what’s it to you, CamelToe? She can be a SAHM who does podcasts and writes children’s books and lives off her money that she and her husband earned. Unlike the SAHM Princess of Wales who is supposed to be working for the country, but grifts like her husband and his family. She’s just mad that Harry pulled back the curtain on her and the rest of the royal rats. She’s pissed that outside of Salty Isle, she’s not considered a journalist or anything reputable. She’s a gossipmonger and paid shill for the monarchy.

    Harry & Meghan are power brokers. They are investors. They are successful writers. They are professionals. They are non-working royals who are proving to be more successful outside of the royal bubble than the ones inside it.

  32. Nadia says:

    So she is basically mad that they work smarter not harder. Got it.

  33. Chaine says:

    I don’t give a s*** if they are being lazy because they are doing on their own dime, not the taxpayers’ unlike SOME PEOPLE

  34. Over it says:

    I give you one sad little man in Dan rooten tootten and raise you one sad ugly bitter toad in Camilla Toms

    • MsIam says:

      Camel Toe and Rooten Tooten are in a race to the bottom for the “Most Bitter Bitch” award. At this point its a tie, but my money is on Camel Toe because I think Dan will keel over from excessive outrage first.

  35. Monlette says:

    Workshy? Since the pandemic they have moved to another country, started a foundation, bought a home, produced two best selling books, a number one podcast, a number one Netflix documentary, worked on an animated series, accepted several awards, gave millions to charity, won several lawsuits, gave birth, and are raising two little ones.

    What about that makes them workshy?

  36. Smee says:

    Being “work-shy” in the house they bought with the money they earned.

  37. Rapunzel says:

    Regardless of their workrate, the Sussexes cannot be the poster couple of workshy Britain when they have been living in Montecito, CA for 3 years.

    The only thing Britain the Sussexes could be poster couple for is “why its press sucks” and “how its monarchy is racist”

  38. BeanieBean says:

    In her continuing efforts to vilify Harry & Meghan, she also insults the entirety of the population–‘Workshy Britain’. Does she think people reading this paper want to see themselves described this way? Way to insult your readers, Camzy.

  39. CTOMINEY is fizzing with anger and envy. She’s lost control of the incredible and impressive successful Sussexes. They left her behind together with the other vile rota rats. Stay mad y’all.

  40. QuiteContrary says:

    Cry more, deranger.

    And FFS do some actual reporting, Camilla. Interview Chef Jose Andres about H&M’s support of World Central Kitchen. Interview people who actually are familiar with H&M’s extensive work in philanthropy and the private sector. Too work-shy to do that reporting? Or too afraid of the truth?

  41. Maxine Branch says:

    Tominey like so many of those royal gossipers are exhibiting unhinged behavior. The Sussexes are living, loving and thriving and this breaks those gossipers. They search high and low for any news of the Sussexes to try to turn it into a negative. And it usually falls flat. The day is rapidly approaching where Main Street US news will no longer reach across the pond for their input. As time passes and the Sussexes continue to settle into America, they will not be needed and this frightens those gossipers. Their only audience will be those in their country and even they are getting sick of hearing them use the same tropes re their coverage of this couple. I pity them being stuff with what is left in the royal household to report on.

  42. TheWigletOfWails says:

    This whole article is an April fools joke. How did this execrable woman get a column in a paper to write silly opinion pieces as fact based news? No matter how hard she tries to change the narrative, Harry and Meghan didn’t leave the UK to be “financially independent” and “private”, they left because the British media, herself included are liars and racists who were putting their lives in danger. She also outed herself as one of the people who reveled in that south park nonsense, an anti-Meghan troll mentioned her on Twitter and she responded with glee. This hit dog is still hollering, Harry getting her in Spare must have hurt really bad.

  43. MsIam says:

    Camel Toe knows she is being ridiculous with this stupid opinion piece but she’s trapped by her owners into churning out hateful dreck every week. It must be exhausting to be constantly worked up over nothing and I wouldn’t be surprised to hear that she has checked herself into a rest home to recuperate. I’m sure her room will be down the hall from Rootie Tootie and Piss Moron.

  44. Okay says:

    This still reads to me about how irrelevant the Keens are, even with H&M living in the USA for 3 years. That H&M is the pulse of royal interest, they are “self promoted” aka popular so well that they complete eclipse the Keens and C&C, that the RM can’t stop talking about them because the Keens and C&C know this and use them to keep smearing H&M. The Keens, C&C and RM are the ones out in the cold looking in at H&M. Still trying to associate themselves with two people that want nothing to do with any of them. They didn’t lose the plot they can’t find the plot. The BRF is so disturbed and uninteresting in a charismatic regal and royal way that ever since H&M left has just amplified it. The more they think they are trashing H&M the more they aren’t talking about the Keens or C&C like they are more side characters and supporting cast now waiting for H&M to do something to attach themselves to it.

  45. SenseOfTheAbsurd says:

    Oh wow. You expect insane mouth-foaming pandering to mad vindictive old tories in the DT, but this is something else. Holy creeping shizz.

    Not even trying to make internal sense, I mean, simultaneously bitching in the headline alone that they’re obsessed with self-promotion AND publicity-shy? What?

  47. Lucky Charm says:

    Meanwhile, over in Hypocrisyville on Irony St. are Workshy Willy and Duchess Doolittle, the ACTUAL poster couple for “Workshy Britain”.

    • Doppelgangers R'Us says:

      Yes, “Workshy Britain” AKA the “WORKING” BFR, Royal Rotas, and BM.
      NOT those struggling after being duped into Brixit and the inflation caused by the 1%ers and corporations!

  48. Kkat says:

    The derangers are actually going insane.

  49. Saucy&Sassy says:

    Has it come to the point that the bm have to take the British working public down in order to take H&M down? I really hope that the people who read this will be insulted and say so. I find it astonishing that anyone in the UK thinks this was a good thing to say.

    H&M really don’t need promote much, because the media does it for them. Harry promoted Spare, but after the bm wrote those articles on snippets of a translated copy of the book, I’m not sure that that was even needed. Netflix and Spotify promoted their projects, but you expect that with these entities.

    The more unhinged these people get, the more the US media will ignore them. Bloomberg, Fox and Newsweek, plus a couple of other Murdoch owned media, are the only ones really giving them article space. Spare has a good job of making people in the media think about what’s being written. Jeremy Clarkson was the cherry on top.

  50. Meg says:

    ‘We’re not workshy!
    They’re workshy!’
    Talk about projection

  51. WhatKateHerselfSaidOnPageSix says:

    I don’t care, this is exactly why Meghan shouldn’t have let Archie and Lili take the titles, they’re going to say this at every turn. All bs with no return. I would have went no contact permanently and told royals to keep their titles, screw em!

    • Jais says:

      LMFAO that u really think these articles wouldn’t be written regardless of whether the kids “took” the titles they inherited at birth. Yea, screw em for sure but the Sussexes are a target of the BM bc they’re suing a good portion of them. The bullseye was already there.

    • Acclaim says:

      THIS, I agree with.

      Those kids deserve their rightful titles, however, the BM are absolutely unhinged, as are most of the RF.

      No contact is the only way to go.

      No contact, however, can take time to get to. It’s a long journey. Sometimes very limited contact works just as well.

      I genuinely feel so bad for this lovely family in California, regarding the state of affairs with their own flesh & blood.. Having a decent family truly makes a huge difference in one’s life, & it is really unfortunate that they were both born into a den of vipers, minus Doria, Meg’s niece & Harry’s cousins, Eugenie & Bea.

      I hope Harry ghosts them all, after his f-ked up father’s coronation.

  52. Jay says:

    Let’s say for the sake of argument that Camilla is correct and the Sussexes spend precisely an hour a week with Archewell related stuff. Well, over the past year, their work has been praised by the likes of Bernice King, they have partnered with the NAACP for a media award, and received a humanitarian award themselves from the Kennedy Foundation for Human Rights. Archewell has only been up and running for a few years, but they’ve managed substantial partnerships with World Central Kitchen, Proctor and Gamble, and Global Citizen (vaccines), amongst others. That hour must have been very well spent! If this is what they can accomplish with only an hour a week, I’d call that incredibly productive!

    Not to mention that somehow this “lazy” couple manages to raise their young children, invest in and manage several successful businesses outside of Archewell, including a best-selling memoir and an award-winning podcast, contribute meaningfully to charitable endeavours such as Invictus, Wellchild, and Sentabale and also wage legal battles on several fronts with the Murdoch empire, the British government, and Meghan’s half-sister. Methinks someone in the house of Windsor is projecting a bit.

  53. tamsin says:

    I’m just beginning to wonder exactly what William and Katherine DO with their days- how do they fill in the time set aside to do their job as ‘working royals?’

  54. Emily_C says:

    Genocidal Tory propaganda. They’ve murdered thousands of disabled people with this.

  55. blunt talker says:

    The poster Nadia stated it best-working smarter not harder is the right description-people working from home are doing it in a smart way not a hard way-2 little children running around can take up a lot of time-they need to stuff it and focus on the royals working in the UK.

  56. ❌❌❌Tart ❌❌❌ says:

    It is obvious that the Dussexes are being attacked for allegedly being “workshy” due to Harry writing in SPARE that he has an aversion to being called lazy.

  57. JustStop says:

    I can’t remember where it was (here?), but there was a story just last week about how Archewell outperformed both the Clinton and Obama foundations’ first year performances. They gave away more money to more organizations. And I’m pretty the one hour a week is about not having to keep time cards, and it’s the floor of what they do at Archewell. And it certainly doesn’t count their work with Invictus and their other charities.

  58. AC says:

    Some people across the pond are literally becoming psycho and crazy. Let’s get this straight : Archewell foundation is doing just fine . Ok rephrase that : Archewell Foundation has become very successful WITHOUT the need for TAXPAYERS SUPPORT. Something that the Ahem BRF can’t live without .. LOL…
