Harry and Meghan have decided to step back as senior members of the Royal Family and work to become financially independent.

 

It's suggested the Queen was not told this info before it was released to the public. Apparently.

 

Royal transition in making America Great (Britain) Again: -

Prince Harry marries an American - Archie is born - They all ‘retire’ to USA - Archie gets dual citizenship - Archie becomes King - Archie also elected as US President - USA is once again ruled by an English King

This then may allow a move towards 'rationalising' the languages and see a gentle phasing out of the words "down time" and the irksome "outages".

 

We all hope it will also end the use of the phrase "Can i get" and see it replaced with the correct "May i have"

I think this has been the plan of the narcissistic, money grabbing, praying mantis from the start - and Harry was an absolute idiot to fall for her act. He was warned and didn’t listen and now, as well as cutting off her own family, she has alienated Harry from his family and friends.

The royal family need to remove their titles, funding, security, Frogmore Cottage etc, with immediate effect. Do not allow them to have this part-time royal status with benefits that they want - cut the ungrateful wretches adrift before they do any more damage. IMO.

They do seem to want their cake and eat it.

 

Maybe that's why they used the phrase "stepping back"

Deserting would be more like it, though I can understand why with all the grief they seem to be getting from all quarters...

 Tbh I have some sympathy for Harry .....given what happened to his mum....but I have none for her I’m afraid . I think she is a fame grabber , who got more than she bargained for ! I found the way she treated her dad appalling  But no doubt they will end up making a shed load of money trading in their *celebrity* in America . ..and I wonder how soon the kiss and tell stories will hit the media ! I hope the palace cuts them loose financially ...let them sink or swim on their own

Agree with every word Yogi has said.

 

Tbh I don't think Henry's that bright. Same goes for his brother but at least he's with the progamme.

 

Good riddance SussexRoyal although I'm holding out for my patented and copywritten mug and T-shirt. Hope there's a calendar.

They seem to want all the privileges of royalty and none of the obligations. Meghan wanted to act the princess and be queen of the walk, but having to defer to William and Kate and being just the wife of a now minor royal didn't suit her at all. I originally gave the marriage five years, I'm now revising it to three before she ditches him

That’s it in a nutshell, Kaytee.

One thing for sure, the royal family won’t let any of the princes marry any more Americans! 

 After Wallis and Meghan, I can’t say I’d blame them.

Wallis had dress sense Yogi and so did he      

 

Sense is the operative word.

 

I don't believe Clarence House never knew beforehand. That is a closed shop.

Do you think their actions are correct/justified/just plain wrong?

Option 3

 

There might have been a certain amount of justification behind what they are wanting to do,building they are going about it in completely the wrong way!

It's the "financially independent" bit that is revealing

 

Currently they are 'paid' for work they are told to do by the house of Windsor - so being financially independent means they'll make their own money by 'choosing' what they do.

 

In other words they won't do any more engagements for the family.

Can they be independent and be Royalty?

 

This seems as close to an abdication as it gets.

And if it is then is he a traitor to his country?

Eamonn Holmes has no sympathy for Meghan Markle:

"I just find her incredibly irritating. I've never met her but I look at her and I think 'I don't think I'd like you in real life.' Awful, woke, weak, manipulative, spoilt..."

 

I thought better of him - he's an idiot if he bases his condemning opinion on a 'feeling'.

He's a journalist FGS but brings forward no evidence. It's just nasty not professional.

It only adds weight to their justification to quit and move abroad.

I want to make clear that this isn't meant as criticism of the OP, as I'm well aware that the phrase is already "out there", but I really don't like the term "#MEGXIT". I've been listening to a number of commentators about this over the last few days, and I do agree with them that the use of this term feels like part of what has been a continuous low-level attack on Meghan by certain aspects of the media - basically designed to give the impression that this is all about her and it's all her fault.

 

Another example I've noticed today has been the way in which the reporting of Meghan returning to Canada has referred almost exclusively to Meghan "leaving" - giving the impression that she's abandoning Harry to face the music. There's been barely any mention of the fact that the two of them only came over to the UK at short notice when the story broke, and Meghan is returning to be with Archie. The real question should therefore be not why Meghan left, but why Harry didn't...

 

I think it's pretty clear to anyone who's aware of Harry's history with the press (particularly the way he was treated as a young adult and his thinly disguised hatred of them over the death of his mother) that he is likely an even bigger driver in this. Some Royal correspondents have observed that he's wanted out for a long time - it's only now that he thinks he's found a way of doing it...

Pretty outrageous and inappropriate comments from Holmes, there. As I've said above, certain corners of the media do seem to think they can criticise Meghan in ways that they wouldn't dream of with other members of the Royal Family. 

 

Another example that occurs to me is the way Meghan got criticised for guest-editing Vogue. Some even called it "unprecedented", which was a flat out lie. Several Royals have edited magazines in the past, e.g. Prince Charles with Country Life, but they were never criticised for it - only Meghan...
