It seems to me that ol' Meghan wants her cake and eat it.....sorry Meghan this is not Hollywood it doesn't work that way. You knew what you signed up for.....there is a bit more to it than the fairy tale of marrying a prince.

The word you're groping for is "uppity".

An advantage if they move to BC is they won't be so easily hounded by paparazzi as the Safe Streets Act makes it illegal here.
Safe Streets Act
I believe some other provinces have similar laws.

Read this for an idea of why Markle might find the UK press a little "hostile".

Not that I've got any time for the royals, just even less for the Piers Morgan-style press.

Sarah Vine is even worse than Piers Morgan, a foul person. The avocado headlines gave me a laugh, thanks for that.

If they didn't exist, I wouldn't invent the royal family, but none of us chooses our circumstances and I have some sympathy for theirs. I've no clue how one could step into that household and appear to be low maintenance. The little I read of her, Ms. Markle seems to be doing passably well at a impossible act. Shame in a way that Prince Harry didn't marry someone properly unsuitable like Gwyneth Paltrow or Lizzo - give the press something to really be apocalyptic about.

I had no idea this existed, you would think police could use this for the aggressive panhandlers and other street merchants in Vancouver.

Give it time lol I am sure they will end up in LA, I am devastated as I wish Harry and Meghan were moving full time overseas...anywhere lol as long as it's not the UK and we're not footing the bill!.

I don't think she ever had PR.

If memory serves actors and those in the film industry easily obtain work permits.

Totally agree. She / they seem to want to keep all of the privileges of being royal, whilst supposedly being financially independent. If they want to be independent, how can they expect others to fund their security? Surely the best thing is for her to go back to acting and support him, and he can do charity stuff as an individual, not a royal.

Selling "Sussex Royal" branded stuff seems unbelievably tacky.

And I totally agree with your words.... she is/has done a great single handed job of reducing royalty to some tacky Hollywood show.... on top of that she has had zero respect for the Queen and couldnt even be bothered to atttend the meeting in person to sort out the mess she has created....I really feel for the Queen, a proud dignified woman who has given a life of duty to the United Kingdom and 'ol Meghan has turned it into a tacky Hollywood soap opera.

Its not that shes unsuitable she has just had no respect for the institution she chose to marry into...and had no intention of "fitting in" ....with its protocol. who does she think she is?? Shes no Kate thats for sure. Hardly surprising they didnt get along

On a lighter note....Harry and Lizzo now thats hilarious!! thats made me laugh.
