Harry and Meghan Resigning (Act 6 Scene 2) Is Everyone Okay?

This is Thread Eight in a series which I did not imagine would last more than one.

Meghan's friends are now writing on social media that she has been fortunate to "escape the clutches" of the Royal Family.

We, who care enough for the Queen that we are appalled by Meghan's blatant disrespect for the Crown (and the family which embraced her) are still reeling as we go from revelation to revelation. This bizarre and unprecedented situation has unfolded over a period of just eight days.

We are now beginning to see what Meghan's likely agenda was. It seems that abandoning the UK was her plan even prior to the wedding - a wedding which cost the British people £20,000,000.

Not many people actually begrudged paying that £20,000,000. But some were prescient enough to say that the marriage would not last and that Meghan would abandon this country once she had a child.

She has. She has fulfilled those prognostications amply.

It was just rather...quicker than perhaps we had imagined...…. and a good deal more brutal. Cries of "racism" have abounded - cries which are simply not justified.

What will happen next? Meghan has gone to Canada, a country which does not seem particularly keen to foot the huge bill for security which her presence requires. She is dropping in on charities for disadvantaged women, almost unannounced, without the backing or knowledge of Buckingham Palace. It is cringeworthy and embarrassing in the extreme.

Prince Harry seems to be lost in the maelstrom of public opinion. What will happen next? Will Meghan announce a second pregnancy?

And is the RF okay?

@Grandmi

You can ignore it if you're not interested.

I was in thread 2 I think

If this is a summary it’s taken a horrible turn

I see the Mail on Sunday are arguing that she has no reasonable right to expect her private correspondence to stay private. I find that appalling but also, I can’t help thinking they wouldn’t have done this to anyone else in the RF.

I’m starting to think it was Harry’s escape plan and I can see why!

I’m wondering when Harry will leave? This weekend?

The RF is dysfunctional in the extreme. I don’t doubt it’s a toxic environment to enter into. I don’t blame her for wanting out.

But she’s taken them on at their own game, and she’s not the one who will lose. It will be Harry and, to a large extent, his children.

Once you’ve seen the inside, that’s it. You’re under their control in one way or another. Money is the smallest of the weapons in their arsenal. This country has too much riding on the RF’s reputation. Harry will end up a lost prince, like many in the thousand years to now.

Very sad. He should have known better, and would have had he not had such hubris. She - meh. Irrelevant.

Also, I think the pair of them will be very happy together, free in the wilderness. She has only gained things. He has lost so much.

He has no idea how cold it is out there.

“ It will be Harry and, to a large extent, his children. ”

What is he losing?

As for children, we’re all stuck with the choices our olds made for us.

TheMustressMhor Fri 17-Jan-20 00:27:24

He has no idea how cold it is out there.

The poor unfortunate sod will soon find out just how very cold it is.

Fortunately his family will be glad to welcome him back.

The sole allure of a happy wife and children 5000 miles away from the rest of your family, who you ostensibly were close to or at least fond of, and who happen to be the RF, will pall eventually. In time Harry will understand his place in history, and his legacy. I’m sure he wants and needs freedom, but there’s a way to go about it. That’s what the RF’s advisors are for. They’re the real guardians of the RF’s reputation. Their primary concern isn’t the individuals, it’s the institution. That’s why it’s foolish to ignore their advice, to act in haste. Haste = under 3 years from meeting Meghan to today.

Can somebody please tag me on this thread so when I wake up in the morning I'll have an email which will take me straight there.

Be as rude as you like! wink

@fallen121

I am too tired to think of a suitably impolite message for you.

grin

Sleep well. I am still locked out of Instagram.

Oh bugger. Who was that person whose follow request I accepted then? They had pictures of cats. And jewellery. I assumed it was you.

confused

@fallen121

Are you still in your bed? Wakey wakey. You are not entitled to lie in your bed like a duchess you know grin. You have posts to do!

AutumnCrow Fri 17-Jan-20 00:51:42

I'm not on Instagram, not guilty

willothewispa Fri 17-Jan-20 00:51:48

I'm not so sure that Harry's going to go.

SpinneyHill Fri 17-Jan-20 00:52:26

@fallen121 You ladies have been talking about this on NINE threads and you should really find something better to do...like getting it up to TEN ASAP.

I am utterly ashamed of how invested I am in this.

NumbersStation Fri 17-Jan-20 00:53:11

Now that would be news @willothewispa

Eeeeee.

Horsemad Fri 17-Jan-20 00:57:06

What makes you think that @willothewispa?

willothewispa Fri 17-Jan-20 01:03:37

No idea, just a gut feeling so it's probably rubbish

MooseBeTimeForSummer Fri 17-Jan-20 01:13:05

Out in the cold? Probably not visiting this bit of Canada then. Currently -37 with the wind chill.

Happysummer2020 Fri 17-Jan-20 01:14:48

When do we think Harry will realise his mistake?

He's never known any life outside the royal family. He's giving up a career, a country, a family.... that's so much. Does he know what a new life outside the RF really means? He's never experienced it.

Cora1942 Fri 17-Jan-20 01:19:15

They have been very rude. The Guns and Rose's song. Megan's comments via friends how she hates UK.
Think we have been used. Good luck to them but no royal titles now. Mr and Mrs Mountbatten.
Bye ...... dont come back
