    1 pence is too much.

    I'm not about to blame the poor, the hopeless, and desperate for the woes of the country.

    I'd rather blame the head of state.

    Fair play to them for keeping such a low profile these days.

    i usually care not a jot about our royals, they are so far removed from us mere subjects that they have no real clue about life...all on a silver platter, servants and paid for holidays bear no relation to most lives in this country yet some drool over them at every opportunity to make them feel important.

    if these two people really want to be away from this draconian set up good for them, but to still want the paid for security and titles for the offspring smacks (again and as ever) of the double standards this firm employs...and why are some still calling them duke and duchess?

    I had a lot of respect for Harry when he was in the military - he did what he was allowed to do and whilst he will have been overly protected at the end of the day he had a "proper" job. He now seems to want to be one of these reality TV stars who are famous for being famous. I don't want to be a royal but I'm happy to make money telling people about when I was a royal and I don't want to be a royal but I want you to treat me as if I was still a royal and give me unjustified legs up whenever I ask for one.

    Whatever sympathy that the UK public has for him will dissipate quite quickly if this is his plan for making money going forward.

    As for the royal family, they will do what they always do in these circumstances - close ranks and get on with things until this all blows over.

    The part that made me laugh was that they chose to step away and now have been cut off financially.

    Can you imagine walking up to your boss saying i don't want to do anything anymore but i'll still come to the christmas party and i want to be paid my normal wage with all the perks? You'd be told to **** off in a heartbeat.

    I'd have thought making their own way in the States would mean that they would not partake in a warts and all interview about the 'hardships' that they had to endure as members of the royal family. If they wanted a clean break they certainly havnt gone about it the right way. It totally contradicts everything that they have said they hope to achieve. If I had an abusive parent(s), upon leaving home I would want to move away asap and refuse contact with them. I certainly wouldnt be standing outside their house shouting abuse and throwing stones at their windows.

    It's worse than that imo.

    They've turned their backs on the British public but still want their money.

    They claim they want to avoid scrutiny by the media but can only make money by using the media ...

    ... they literally have nothing else to offer.

    When they divorce Harry will have to come home to his mam and see the kids one weekend a month.

    She'll immediately sell her "My hell with Harry" story to Netflix.

    Lets assess the worth of the show by judging something that is clearly bull ****. She says they got married 3 days before the actual ceremony. IT WAS THE REHEARSAL for heavens sake, many weddings have a rehearsal with the Minister. I do question also this me me me moan that someone asked how dark their offspring would be ... I'm now unsure whether that would be questioning colour or character.

    Can anybody show me or is aware of any evidence of the media/tabloids being racist towards Megan?

    The first I knew of it was when she complained about it to the media, drawing attention to something I never knew existed.

    Then complaining about the media intrusion into their lives by constantly going to the media to talk about it, we’ll, make of that what you will.

    Meghan was painted as a gold digger only after Harry because he was a prince, despite the fact a mutual friend sent them up.

    Kate on the other hand openly admitted she chose the university she did because William attended that university. She openly spoke about how she wanted to be with the prince.

    Meghan was chastised and pretty much branded a whore by the media because she has done scenes in underwear.

    Kate was celebrated and it was branded the ‘moment’ William noticed her when she wore a sheer dress with underwear on a catwalk.

    Meghan was chastised and shamed for being of common blood.

    Kate was celebrated as a commoner a true Cinderella story, Kate who is a multimillionaire’s daughter who was afforded every luxury in life.

    Meghan was shamed for wearing designer clothing with a high price tag.

    Kate is praised as a style icon whilst wearing designer clothing with a high price tag.

    If you polled the British people with the question "What harm have the Royal Family done to you personally?", there may not be too many with a true answer. Now ask the same question about convicts. There'll be many more personally affected by them. Victims of burglary, muggers, murderers, druggies, rapists, twoccers. But of course they are all poor and hopeless, so completely blameless in your eyes.

    I wonder why all the poor and hopeless, as you put it, don't resort to crime?

    The current Mrs Flanders is a lady of colour and we just said today, if we had met years and years ago and we had a baby together, there is no doubt everyone of my and her family would wonder what colour the baby would be....not one ounce of racism in that question. These two (Harry and Megan) are nothing more than attention seekers. I do get the feeling that Harry knows his real dad is James Hewitt and feels like total outsider and blames the Royal Family for the death of his mother
