In today’s compelling extract, Mr Brandreth, a former Conservative MP reveals:
  • The Queen was ‘devoted’ to Harry and thought he was ‘huge fun’ but feared he was ‘perhaps a little too in-love’ with Meghan;
  • She liked Meghan and did ‘everything to make her feel welcome’;
  • The Queen told Meghan she could continue her career, saying: ‘You can carry on being an actress if you like – that’s your profession, after all’;
  • When Meghan said she would quit acting to dedicate herself to Royal service, the Queen was ‘delighted’ – but then became concerned when her offer to have Sophie Wessex ‘show her the ropes’ was rejected;
  • The Queen liked Meghan’s mother Doria, and was sorry the Markle family was ‘fractured’;
  • While other members of the Royal Family found the Sussexes’ decision to name their daughter Lilibet – the Queen’s childhood nickname – ‘bewildering’ and ‘rather presumptuous’, the Queen remarked it was ‘very pretty and seems just right’;
  • If Harry and Meghan are mentioned to other members of the Royal Family, the response is a brief smile and the curt platitude: ‘We wish them all the best’;
  • When Prince Andrew ‘harrumphed’ about Meghan and Harry’s tell-all interview with Ms Winfrey in 2020, the Queen gently reminded him of a similar interview his ex-wife Sarah Ferguson had given to the same talk-show host;
  • Prince Philip felt that the Sussexes’ interview was ‘madness’ but the Queen was relaxed, dismissing it – and a forthcoming Netflix documentary – as ‘this television nonsense’;
  • The story that the Queen shed tears at the decommissioning of the Royal Yacht Britannia in 1997 is debunked as a myth, as Prince Philip told Mr Brandreth that it was simply down to a cold wind that day which made everyone’s eyes water;
  • When Zara Tindall told her grandmother she was calling her daughter Lena rather than Elena because she didn’t want her child’s initials to be ET, the Queen, not appreciating the reference to the 1982 film about an extra-terrestrial, replied. ‘You’ve lost me’.
To me this book is the most damning account regarding the despicable Hawry. His Grandmother gave he and his evil conniving wife nothing but unconditional love, even as she had to make difficult decisions to protect the Monarchy. I had not comprehended the apparent degree of tolerance she showed them. Without any appreciation, they responded with disrespect and malicious behaviors. They deserve to be obliterated from all things Royal.

I read the excerpt in the DM too and it appears that everyone around the Queen knew she was ill, possibly battling some type of bone marrow cancer as the excerpt states. The family and her closest staff knew her time was short and Harry/MM still did what they did over the past couple of years and turned down the invitation to stay with her during her final summer at Balmoral. The rest of the family spent time with her. It would not have been hard for Harry and Meghan to do the same. I don't expect Meghan has any regrets about that, she didn't know the Queen well and couldn't care less about her, but Harry certainly did. So, I think that is particularly damning and speaks volumes about him.

Not surprised. I have zero interest in this season. I was around for all the tabloid coverage of the real events and don't like the cast.
I think that's it. I too was around for the media coverage and it just doesn't seem to work.

I also think this new Diana doesn't have the same appeal. They also aren't doing her blue liner including on the lower lash line which makes this actress not very Diana like.

This thread moves so fast, much faster than the mall traffic :smile:
Just sharing my thoughts:

RE: Cory’s mom: she said nice things to avoid the lawsuit. Her praises did seem a bit too much [which to me was the big clue she didn’t really mean it]. :sunnies:

RE: Spare: free? Nope. Not going to fall for that tactic. I really hope this book is an epic fail, like all their other half-a$$ nonsense. :lecture:

RE: QE’s treatment - imo he did not respect her when she was well, so he simply continued his $hitty behavior. Think about his behavior through the years [nude in Vegas, nazi shirt, drug issues, stumbling out of bars, etc.]. None of that stuff is kind to his family, none of that is ‘royal’ behavior. He was and still is an embarrassment - no matter how much money they give him. Andi, at least, has been quiet. :whistle:

RE: The Crown - agree with @Jayne1 - I gave up several seasons ago. The historical seasons were informative, the modern day seasons twist the truth too much. My interest fell off with the modern day seasons. :sleepy:

ETA: possible Fake News below :shrugs:

Princess Charlotte to be Duchess of Edinburgh: King Charles wants to keep the role for the third in line to throne in a 'fitting' tribute to The Queen - who also held the title - and to 'honour the line of succession'​

  • Prince Edward was expected to become Duke of Edinburgh after father's death
  • Princess Charlotte is third in line to the throne after Prince William and George
  • Giving her the title would honour the late Queen and the line of succession

He is selfish. There is nothing good to say about him after acting like this and treating TQ and PP as he did. It is not even worth talking about Meghan in this regard as she thinks of no one, but herself. She has made that crystal clear.

I read the article and understand KC's reasoning, but I still can't help but feel a bit sorry for Prince Edward. It seems like anyone else who is passed over for a promotion after they've kept their head down and worked hard. I hope his royal privilege makes it easier to swallow.

So. Much. Wrong with this.

But also, the same mother that was giving interviews praising Ghoul as basically a saint?


Lest anyone think we're a bunch of crazies here, there are plenty of IG and Twitter commenters who share our distaste for MM:

"I've followed the happenings in May 2016 for a little while and it is sure that while she was living with Cory, Markus was in the picture, she met Haz and there was Rory, Mister Ice-Bucket... busy gal that month our Meg!
I have also seen a story that she "met" Haz in April 2015 at the opening of her legs and Soho House Istanbul."

:lol::lol::lol:

Some are saying this story is fake news. Stay tuned.

ETA: this working royal thing is really becoming a huge consideration. Perhaps the glory days are over. Many other monarchies have trimmed down, too. :thinking:

Every time I see her in that droopy boobie dress I laugh.
One never knows, but some day ZedZed might surprise us and have it auctioned for her favourite charity: MEMEME.
In my mind's eye, I can see the headlines now.

Who would want it? Certainly not to wear, maybe to burn.
