Maybe some of you should try it.

Have they requested any security? Isn't it thrust upon them because of who they are?

What is “security” going to cost? About 0.20c each? Ok, I’m in.

According to reports in several media outlets, Prince Andrew's security may be 'downgraded'. Maybe that's what'll happen to H&M.

Eh, hello? She's an actress. The clips with which you find fault with are staged for national consumption. Is it any surprise if she looks OTT or whatever? What we see on our screens is not necessarily their real emotions or personality. Having said, she looks perfectly normal and happy to me. Both of them do.

No. no, no that's not the way it goes. In a relationship since 2016. (I'm getting this from wiki) Officially acknowledged after first wave of anti-Markle feelings. Married 2018 - with all that a royal wedding entails. They decide to have a child, she is pregnant and son is born 2019.

But none of it's genuine. It's all a plot, all fake, she's put herself through all this just to get something. Presumably it's a long term plan to be the target of animosity for a few years but she's playing the long game.

Here she is seen helping to operate on Harry so that he falls for her wicked plan.

Quite. Perhaps I haven't been diligent enough in perusing the "news" outlets that cover this in such minute detail - and of course, the LameStream Media is all about protecting the Global Conspiracy or something, so there's that - but I haven't seen any indication anywhere that they're "requesting" security. I thought the whole point of this exercise was to withdraw from the limelight to the extent that their need for security diminishes.

Predictable...

Seems that the prospect of trips to places such as Derby, Swansea, Hull etc on a regular basis, even if helicoptered in, was diagnosed as risky to the soul and mental health for them.

The article doesn't seem to say that. The article, from 2018, says that, in the opinion of someone who doesn't know the people involved, the marriage isn't likely to last.

I am, of course, in sympathy with the view that it would be better to live in Canada than to visit the places you mention but we've no way of knowing whether or not the couple in question think that.

Is the argument advanced here that the Daily Mail has published an article that is not racist, therefore the Daily Mail's coverage is not racist? If so, I think it's weak. Stephen Yaxley Lennon may, from time to time, say something that's not racist, without diminishing his status as one of the primary racists of our era.

One thing puzzling...I thought the diary of senior royals was booked months and months in advance. If so, how come Harry had only yesterday’s appointment to attend and now his diary is empty.

May be something to do with tariffs; the trade agreement that was supposed to bring cheap British and European cheese to Canadian stores never materialised
