Good question.

I have no idea what the average American thinks of Megan but a quick glance at the tat magazines by the supermarket tills and she's gracing the covers of two. One was not particularly flattering (to put it mildly!) and I couldn't be arsed to lift the plastic morality cover to see why she made it to the front of the National Enquirer but I could just make out her mug through the all but opaque cover and they aren't quite the same league as Vogue or Tattler!!
Probably not the type of exposure she was aiming for!!

“Always remember to put another’s needs above your fears.” Oh yes, in the way the Duchess applies that to her relationship with her father.

I have moved the posts discussing racism into a new thread. Please post any further comments here...

Probably a good business decision to ditch COVID. Cheer up Harry...

And if Will (the other son who we took under our wings) and Kate don't like her much either, and now there is a seemingly unbridgeable rift between the brothers who were once very close indeed then there is clearly something wrong. What is the common denominator?

For that poster to suggest racism is both ridiculous and insulting.
Very true, Racism is the new trump card in debates like climate change. Whenever one can bring up, it often can silence debate, or be seen as truth regardless of evidence.

I like the Trump reference, I am not sure it is anymore, pretty sure most people have heard it all before, recognise the tactic for what it is and move on.

Meghan will be awfully upset now as she will have to part ways with one of her best friends a certain Jessica Mulroney.

Whatever pleases you; whatever you're pleased about. Jessica Mulroney is married to the son of an ex-PM of Canada. I don't know if she and Markle are still friends, or if they're not still friends, because the news cites friends and not the principles as sources for the more lurid bits. The impact on my life is expected to be 0 regardless.

One didn't want to know, one is no longer pleased

Surely the Duchess wouldn’t expect royal privilege to help get roles...

I couldn't name any B-list parts she's had let alone A-list ones.

Perhaps the Duchess has plans for Sunday, possibly including just the family she never had though...
