Because they can and why not? They're not going to get fired or lose money.

There is no modernizing the monarchy.  It is an outdated concept made even more useless by spending too much time managing court intrigue that shifted into tabloids and then the internet.

I wasn’t interested in getting married and only did it because it was important to my (ex)husband. I started out with few opinions and ended up a) throwing a fit over the bouquet and b) threatening to kick my sister out of the wedding day-of. Am I proud of this? No. But it all spiraled and the one thing I really did Read more

In 2012, the Queen advertised for a maid. The salary was about $22k USD. Room and board could be included with “adjusted wages.” Read more

I think Harry knew exactly how Archie would be treated at school, where he would have encountered the likes of Piers Morgan’s kids.

I enjoyed particularly Meghan mentioning that in her prior profession, there was a union one could turn to. I just imagined the Palace courtiers clutching their lapels at that. Are the royal staff unionized?

I love Meghan and Harry. My administration for them grew immensely after hearing the decisions they made/steps they took to escape the royals in order to save their own growing family. Read more

I hadn’t thought about the accident that way. Thanks - this adds another dimension to Harry’s concern about security.

And it is seldom remembered that the palace (ie: the queen) took away Diana’s HRH status, and thus much of her security detail, in what can only be described as petty and mean-spirited. Diana took up with a man far wealthier than her former husband probably believing she’d be protected by all that wealth. Instead she Read more

I listened to misinformation and was influenced to believe that she had made Kate cry and mistreated staff, and generalized that to her character. I even made a comment on this site saying that. I feel really bad now. There’s such racism and misogyny, set within this trope of the sexualized, fetishized African woman, Read more

After realizing that my local CBS wasn’t airing the interview I panic-signed-up for “Paramount Plus” whatever tf that is, and I thought the interview was good TV, A+ would make a reminder to cancel free trial again. Oprah is an unparalleled interviewer. I also enjoyed yelling at my husband to shut up when he came in Read more

Yes. She did know. It’s unfortunate that her escape was to a life still filled with paps. Harry has had better options.

Adding to the fairytale mysticism mentioned in this article, it chilled me when Harry said that he was living off the inheritance his mother left him, that without it his and Meghan’s move would not have been possible. He then said, “She knew.” Read more

Honestly, when she said they took her passport and IDs and would tell her to lay low and not leave even though she had only been out twice in 4 months with a not-very-present husband - I get the Diana comparison. Isolated without a way to get out is some pretty heavy shit and the solitary confinement was a massive Read more
