He and Megan have made this negative energy their life.

Harrys got to let it go, get a life and move on.

Nobody is interested.

The daily news on the royal family has been intense since the death of the queen last September. We need a royal break.

6 ( +10 / -4 )

If the tabloids didn’t keep certain sections of the UK entertained with the joys, tragedies and shenanigans of this family, it would be harder to justify the reason for keeping this family in their position.

Out of sight, out of mind.

The tabloids also love a pantomime villain or two.

Thank the heavens the Queen passed away in peace and not here to witness all these ridiculous family drama.

He’s just been on the Beeb saying everyone is out to get him and he’s been in therapy for years.

He needs to get a new therapist. The one he has now is obviously not doing him any good.

Staring eyes, pursed lips, paranoid.

Until recently members of the British royal family didn't marry for love and didn't choose their partners which were decided by the monarch. It was decided who was best for the throne.

The same was true during the French monarchy.

We are talking about the royal family not those of commoners who have millions of interracial marriages. My own family has nine nationalities including Asians and Black Caribbean.

During the time of the British Empire, there would have been many suitable people to wed into the royal family. The current family is descendants from Germany and Greece. Little actual British.

Its completely obvious that this commenter doesn't realize or is educated in the royal family's of Asia or worldwide.

Having lived and served under a monarch for decades I am very knowledgeable on the subject.

When Harry announced he wanted to marry Meghan there was resistance from his family and the British media.

It won’t be left alone by any side esp the tabloid press.

There is far too much money and potential manipulation at stake…

"I love my father. I love my brother. I love my family. I will always do. Nothing of what I've done in this book or otherwise has ever been to ... to harm them or hurt them," he said.

Until recently, commoners did not marry into the royal family.

There are hundreds of years of inbreeding in all the European royal families.

If Willliam wanted to marry a nonwhite woman he would have been refused.

After the birth of his children, Harry was pushed out of the top level of heirs.

There were major concerns expressed in the British media about another "American divorcee" marrying into the royal family.

There were rumours in the press of royal family members questioning Harry's choice and enquiring about the colour of the baby's hair and skin would be.

All British children in my day at least had to spend much time learning about our royal family and its history and also the British Empire. But none of the negative aspects.

Now a Candian trying to tell me about our own history and my personal experience of serving in the armed forces? Where you get a big measure of what the royal family is about.

Edward VIII abdicated his throne because permission to marry an American divorcee was refused.

For some, maybe many, Camellia cannot become the queen because she is a divorcee. Although I think many people have softened on that point.

Diane was chosen for Charles. it was an arranged marriage.

When Harry decided to marry Meghan, her being an American divorcee was no longer an issue since the current monarch was one and he married another one in 2011.

No member of the royal family will come out of this saga squeaky clean.

How many of the royal family have been black or Asian?

The class system remains.

You could say that for pretty much EVERY royal family worldwide. The English are no different.

Queen Victoria and the Empress of India ruled over the mighty British Empire with deep-rooted racism.

Every colonising nation in history has been racist toward those they have conquered.

No fan of these inbred English-German royals, but all royals through history have been the same.

Two things can be equally true:

There was institutional racism particularly in the tabloid press.

AND, Megan is a fame/attention-seeker on par with Paris, Kim and the other “notables” of the apocalypse. I think William’s characterization of her as “rude and difficult” would be putting a rather more diplomatic spin than on it than she is deserving of.

If one wants to “step back” and gain a zone of privacy, one most first go away and stop wantonly drawing attention to oneself.

Harry is one of the richest and most-entitled men on the planet. He is worth a fortune and has a life most of us could only ever dream of. Does he really think the average Brit, struggling to pay the bills, keep the heat on, and put food on the table, is really going to feel massive sympathy for him because his brother pushed him over and there were comments made about his wife that could be taken to be racist? Royal protocol means the palace won't respond to any of this and it will blow over soon enough. I wish Harry and Meghan well, but I think he should stop feeding the media and get on with enjoying his dream life in California. Wish I could.

Harry and Meghan have said they will not give up their royal titles. To remove the duke and duchess titles would require an act of parliament.

Prince Harry is a very troubled damaged man. it is sad and disturbing to witness.

Will the Duke of Sussex find solace in his public outpouring acts of soul searching?

I doubt it.

That might be so but the article and the forum are discussing the House of Windsor. But basically, yes, I am opposed to all monarchs.

No black people in my family, only Asian in my wife, I suspect most caucasian here are in the same situation.

Comparing yourself and your family to the British royal family?

In my family, there are 10 nationalities including Asian and black.

The pair of narcissists thoroughly deserved each other. He seems hell-bent on trashing his family, she's completely disowned hers (apart from her Mum), so I hope they remain happy in their conflict-ridden existence, although I can't imagine it's a suitable environment for bringing the kids up normally.

He's admitted drugs-usage, which may or may not continue in their household, but had the American authorities been aware of this then he wouldn't have been granted permission to remain in the USA.

He's admitted the killing of 25 Afghans, which now means he's a legitimate target for a lone-star martyr looking for glorification. He could be running out of countries which will allow him to settle in due to his indiscretions - he's certainly going to be rejected back into the UK now that public-opinion has turned massively against him.

What a waste of such privileged life.

The British royal family has turned a blind eye to its racist past.

Queen Elizabeth II never acknowledged the monarchy's historical role in supporting the Black slave trade.

Okay, here is my version who talks about a frost-bitten penis when they are standing at their brother's wedding and or revealing that not only him, but his brother's too has a nipped penis. If Harry wants to reveal publicly about his body parts that is his business, but he has no right to reveal information about his brother's. He also talks about being shagged in the bushes and smacked on his rump afterwards and told to run along. Lastly, he talks about how many Taliban he took down, he needs protection from himself he has now put a warrant out on his head guaranteed. The Royal family is not his enemy, Harry is his own worst enemy and looking more like he needs to hire himself a new and more reliable therapist.

The British press and media are saturated by this story. I turn on the TV, what do I get? I thought it was bad enough when the queen died.

OMG, do yourself a favor man and STOP TALKING.

Harry's next book will be entitled "Mare", because that's where he's headed.

Here is Princey-Poo Harry with another sobby sobby story. I guess that's just another ingredient in the soup to promote your book, huh? First you brag about all the Afghans you killed so you can appear as 'macho', now this. And Meghan, who is a moonstruck obsessed noun that I won't print here has found out that being a princess or royalty itself isn't so Disneyesque after all.

The attention that Princey-Pants and Prissy Miss are getting is getting old, FAST.

So the UK media wants something to write about? Well, it's been 40 years ago this winter when Duran Duran broke through to the world with that classic 'Rio' album and thanks to their videogenic good looks, wonderful videos and butt-kicking smart art-rock music, this REAL 'Fab Five' kick-started a new 'British Invasion' for the 80s. And in February 1983 Def Leppard heralded the glam metal era with 'Pyromania'. Everybody in my HS had to hear it, NOW! So write about that phenomena instead.

Harry dislikes the press, and likes privacy. He seems to be using the press right now to attract a lot of attention to himself, and his wife.

Do you have evidence of that?

Not even Henry does, sadly! And that's probably half the issue.

But we know.

I can see why cupids arrow pinned Harry to the wall, Meghan has that Julia Roberts smile, stretching from one side of the street to the other.

Meghan was ill prepared for the duty that in many respects is part and parcel marrying into the royal family.

Prince Harry temperament and paranoia is the most worrying, his verbal lashing out, and insistence that he is some monarchy tethered goat is driving him to new depths of despair. Cutting him off from his family.

When William and Kate toured the Caribbean they were greeted by protests about the racism of the British empire. Calls for slavery reparations and Jamaica's PM insisting the country was 'moving on' signal sea change in relations with royals.

There's no way back for Harry and Meghan. They crossed several red lines. it will be discussed in school history lessons for decades.

Harry needs to stop thinking with his little head and stop listening to Meghan.

Harry is one of the richest and most-entitled men on the planet. He is worth a fortune and has a life most of us could only ever dream of.

That is very far from the truth. His mother left him money then probably about £30 million. Since then TV and book deals, probably another £50 million.

Does he really think the average Brit, struggling to pay the bills, keep the heat on, and put food on the table, is really going to feel massive sympathy for him because his brother pushed him over and there were comments made about his wife that could be taken to be racist?

The nation is divided. The pro-royals on one side, and the anti-royals on the other.

Royal protocol means the palace won't respond to any of this and it will blow over soon enough. I wish Harry and Meghan well, but I think he should stop feeding the media and get on with enjoying his dream life in California. Wish I could.

Will last 100 years.

Prince Harry got into bed with a 'devil' - it's name was 'Meghan'.

-2 ( +4 / -6 )

Meghan doesn't get her way it is "Racism" so once that was fired off at the Royal family, it was over.

Now she has her claws in him he is a weak willed type and anything she says he does.

I blame the USA system and spreading, the victim card by if you are overweight didn't get the promotion, claim body shaming and discrimination, you are a woman, claim sexism, you are visible minority, claim racism, etc...

Meghan is a pro at this,

When Harry announced he wanted to marry Meghan there was resistance from his family and the British media.

That had more to do with her being American and divorced!

Not to mention previous association with some strange religion on her father's side, and she wasn't church of England ( even Kate was made to convert).

Divorce was also a reason for Resistance to Charles marrying Camilla.

Funny how someone saying:

Having lived and served under a monarch for decades I am very knowledgeable on the subject.

Would forget that, remember why Elizabeth's father became king?

-2 ( +2 / -4 )

It' s impossible to accept Megan in rhe royal family, Harry should have merried someone much fit for a princess role, and above that he seems very bling for a person everyone thinks would be more worried with helping with good diplomacy and social harmony. The newspapers couldn't aks for a bigger donk.

I mean hey there is a reason some other dude had her locked down but later got rid of her right?

-3 ( +3 / -6 )

How many of the royal family have been black or Asian?

So are you advocating to dictate who they marry now?

So I guess most of our families are racist under your observation.

No black people in my family, only Asian in my wife, I suspect most caucasian here are in the same situation.

Wait no non Thai in the Thailand Royal family, what about that!

So now today to prove we aren't racist we need to send out family looking for Black and or Asians for them to marry.

He told Britain's ITV he had fled Britain with his family for California in 2020 "fearing for our lives"

Wasn’t he in Canada first? Claiming he wouldn’t move to the USA, then moving to the USA anyway?

The royal family is racist without a doubt but in modern times have tried to improve their image or the "company" has they call. A bunch of crooks would call it the "firm".

Queen Victoria and the Empress of India ruled over the mighty British Empire with deep-rooted racism.

How many of the royal family have been black or Asian?

The class system remains.
