Quite disappointed; heard the Meghan TV live link into the meeting yesterday didn’t happen and she just relied on Harry, relaying back the meeting’s discussions.

Was speculated that it was the Palace that refused the link as they couldn’t be sure who else would be watching/listening in. Meghan must be gutted; could’ve made a mint on You Tube with that video.

They were worried about hacking. Can't trust the press.

Maybe or also worried that Megs might use this down the road when it's all over ?

With a bit of luck we won't have to listen to her sister criticising her and giving the press so much ammunition.

Quick BBS question.

Meghan. Is the problem REALLY racism or is it because she is American and so "different"?

Arguments flowing in the IOW household tonight.

I think the consensus is that she comes across as a conniving manipulator who has ruined Harry's life by 'Yokoing' him out of the royal family, when he had seemed fairly content before getting together with her.

Racism is not a factor in this, nor her nationality, although you could argue that the particular form of wanky pretentious preachy entitled hypocritical selfish Hollywood culture she seems to embody has a lot to do with it.

(To my shame I joined in a conversation about the couple yesterday; it turns out I have more of an opinion that I realised! )

Thomas Markle could testify against daughter Meghan in her legal battle with The Mail on Sunday as High Court documents revealed he forms part of the newspaper's defence.

Maybe it’s best for the Palace to be distanced from this woman - could get very messy.

Definitley because she is American. We've had Danes, Germans, Dutch, Greek and French (Normans) as part of our Royalty but an American is just too far after their treachery in 1776......the Monarchy NEVER forgets

Why does she come across as a "conniving manipulator"? Is it because of the innumerable unsubstantiated stories from the Daily Mail, or because people have met her?

She had a successful career pre-Harry, and did not really need to do anything. Could it be that the two of them just don't want to deal with all the bollocks that goes with being a royal. Harry probably thought he had more of a duty when he was third in line. Now that he is he something like sixth or seventh, that need is diminished. Meghan will never be accepted by 51% of the country (you know who you are), so why waste their time and energy?

A manufactured consensus created by a right wing press feeding frenzy of hatred.

She may be all of that but Harry does appear to be as thick as shit.

Newspapers were fine up to and after the wedding.

After that, things changed. Now it could be that the two royal brothers have become estranged because William reads the Daily Mail ; or it could be because he knows her, and that he knows she’s a conniving manipulator.

Or it could be because Meg and Kate don’t like each other and The brothers sided with their wives. Or the brothers drifted apart, or the gagging order surrounding Will is true and Harry was friends with the lady?

Who knows? It’s not uncommon for siblings to fall out is it? It certainly isn’t always down to a wife being a conniving manipulator.

I don’t know much about MM but it seems strange to marry into a family about which you must know what to expect, and almost immediately want to turn everything upside down.

In these circumstances, motherless and close for so many years, I’d say yes, it’s unusual.

It could just coincidence of course. But remind me how Ms Markle has also. dispensed with every other member of her family?

There are enough Germans in the Royal Family without you adding to them!
