Wallis Simpson was always pissed about the HRH that she wasn't entitled to.
She made her hangers on use it anyway, which is a bit sad.

As for one more article?
There are a thousand more articles.
There will be films and mini series, books and loads of stuff till everyone gets bored and goes back to the Tudors for one more remake.

None of it means anything.

They can either test this in court, or whine forever about how it wasn't fair, or shut up and get on with their lives.

The queen said no.
They caved.

Maybe so..I was never interested in Wallis.

For all the queen’s supposed power..it seems that William is the only one that got it right with the woman he married. Edward also seems to have made a good choice now..though I think there was some gossip in the beginning about Sophie, but she seems to have settled in and tows the line and they aren’t divorced. I think Charles could have had a good wife..if he could have given up Camilla..but that’s speculation...it seems to be hard to be married to a royal.

The queen has no power.

She is a figurehead for something else. Something that is extremely rich and extremely powerful, and very, very ancient.

Some people seem to think that the queen is powerful..if you read comments on articles about this even you said she had teeth.

That may be true...it’s interesting that the royals can still be around in this day and age..but then we Americans got rid of them a long time ago...

The crown has big teeth.
The queen is their figurehead.

Also, for a country that got rid of them, you generally seem more interested in them than the British.

I liked Diana, otherwise I probably wouldn’t care about them. My family doesn’t care about them at all.

The Queen 'wants Megxit to be over and done with' and doesn't like talking about Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's departure, a royal source tells Vanity Fair

Like now? ;)

To an extent.

I have been looking at the mail a lot because they have a coronavirus tab. So I have been seeing all this royal stuff too.
And you have been chatting with me about it. (which I have enjoyed) So probably I have been paying more attention than I usually would.

But yes, both this and the Prince Andrew thing have been worth watching, all very amusing.
Especially the mail frothing at the mouth.

The mail does like to report it all. I find Pierce Morgan’s personal dislike of Megs funny. If only she hadn’t ghosted him, he might still like her?

I thought maybe I was bothering you by talking about it, glad you’ve enjoyed the talk.

Andrew sensibly did as he was told after he made a bigger mess out of things. That guy is clueless and disgusting! Seems his daughters have been keeping a low profile too.

Yes! A bit of royal gossip is always fun! :)

Piers Morgan. Lol!
Did she ghost him? I didn't know that.
He is very self important, isn't he?

Andrew...
He shouldn't get into a sweat about it... lol...

No one has ever liked Fergie's daughters. The poor things have always kept their heads down.
It's not even them, it's a general dislike of Fergie that has tainted them too.

Megs is actually doing the Queen a huge favour.
This has caused a whole upswelling of support for the queen, and knee jerk defense of the monarchy.
The Queen
The loyal son
The loyal grandson

The succession is assured.
For now, at least.

Haha...and ET is kissing her butt.

They seem like nice girls...could be better dressed. That makes sense that Fergie has tainted them...that and their holidays.

Ya never know...Diana always said Charles wouldn’t be king..but I think she went to psychics for that info.

I know the biases of the British press very well, but I never know how to judge other countries coverage.
Which one is like The Sun, and which is like The Guardian; I just have no idea.

Where do Fergies girls go on holiday?
Skiing? I bet they go skiing.
Posh skiing.

Well, time will tell who gets the throne next, or if indeed there is a throne to be had.
I bet Diana never thought she would die in a road tunnel.

Do you give any credence to the rumor that she didn't die, and that Al Fayed faked her death so she could get out before they killed her?

Also I've ghosted people on the internet, and I bet Piers has too. So I will refrain from coment on that.

Apparently they go on holiday quite often...or at least I’ve always read they have and the commenters seem to agree with the articles. I guess..by reading the Mail..I know quite a bit about your royal family..if its all true anyway..lol!

Battle of the jet-set princesses: Eugenie challenges Beatrice's holiday record after swanning off EIGHT times in just 15 months
  • Princess has been to Beijing, Coachella and Burma in recent months
  • Celebrated her 25th birthday with lavish Italian meal in New York
  • Older sister Beatrice has been on 18 trips in same space of time


Actually, she told people she would die in a car accident and Charles would be behind it all...probably why people think the royals were behind the car crash...
Princess Diana letter claims Prince Charles was ‘planning an accident’ in her car just 10 months before fatal crash


I’ve never heard that story..just that Al-Fayed was heartbroken and angry at the royals over the deaths. Wasn’t he going to sue them or something? He was the one that was trying to sell the relationship between Diana and his son as more than it was, I thought.

Oh lol! She did predict it, didn't she!
She must have been chatting to Mystic Meg.

You do read a lot on the royals!
Why don't you like Megan? You seem to have disliked her before she disrespected the queen.

The Mail is one of the best sources for gossip, but it is biased, exaggerated and generally unsourced.
Except from all those nameless 'friends' who gossip to the press.
They really hate Fergie and her kids. Not sure why.

No, that Al Fayed thing. I think I made that up. Shall we run with it? Just for fun? See if we can get it to take off?
It worked for Elvis.

Ya she did predict it but she was talking the breaks, not the driver combined with the paparazzi and the ineptness of the al fayed family.

Maybe Fergie ghosted Piers all those years ago too? Lol! Now those girls won’t be able to get out from under the shadow of their dad as well...how unfortunate. Bea could move to Italy and maybe escape after she marries her con artist...I mean fiancé. I don’t know for sure that he is..he just seems like love isn’t all that he’s marrying for. Eugenie seems to be doing better marrying someone who seems stable anyway.
She was having a nice wedding until Megs showed up with the bottom half of her coat undone and taking the limelight from the bride and putting it on herself with the is she or isn’t she pregnant question.

I didn’t dislike Megs until the engagement photo where it was more than obvious to me that she was not in this for love...and she’s shown nothing but that since...and the only reason I kept the interest is because Harry seems to have totally changed his personality in such a short time that its like watching a train wreck. So, I’ve been reading about them to find out if someone knows how this happened to Harry...which I don’t know if the truth is out there..or there’s different reasons for his involvement with this woman and the total change of his personality..or like in the op..was he always like this and like he said...no one knows the real me.

O, lol! I could see that being something too about the al fayeds..

I always think that if you want genuine love, you are better off being poor.
If you have money, power, or status you never know if people are on the make or not.

I didn't know who Megan was until the wedding. I really hadn't been paying attention to any of it.

Though I think their idea of financial independence is different to mine.

That’s totally true, but supposedly he had broke it off with her and William wasn’t so keen on her..I would think in that position you’d trust the brother who was a good brother to you...but he marries her anyway and his whole personality changes. So that’s where a conspiracy theory can come into it..why’d he do it?
And it could just be he’s human too..but why’s the family got the kid gloves over this is the next question..is there something else going on with why he got away with marrying her? Honestly, I really don’t know why I care except I guess I do.

Ya, financial independence is selling your birthright to the highest bidder...who wants to pay for them? I just don’t get that.

What do you mean by How he got away with marrying her?
I don't think I understand what he's meant to have got away with.

Nor do I see kid gloves.

The Queen looks angry, even though she is doing the sad and disappointed expression.

I didn't see any of the run up to the engagement or wedding. What did I miss?
