I've just seen a comment on an Instagram post which sums up quite clearly how I imagine the Royal Family feel about Harry and Meghan. 'If as a tiny boy you had to walk behind a gun carriage at your mum's funeral after she was harrassed to death, or face years of people questioning who your dad is, or your wife is hatefully bullied whilst carrying your unborn child; let's all agree you're allowed to **** off if you want to.

Bitching about a woman you do not know, assuming you know anything at all about the dynamics in a marriage you are not a part of, taking great pleasure in guessing how long a marriage will last? Just **** right off. You disgust me.
Some or most of the gutter press have had the knives out for Meghan for a long time, and find any excuse to blame everything on her. The worst is that simpering sufferable Piers Morgan, who has an axe to grind because Meghan didn't keep in touch with him after she met Harry.

These same anti Meghan and Harry people can't stand to see the Sussexes have titles and be treated as Royals but they can't stand it when the Sussexes say they want to step bacl from Royal life

Fair enough, if they want out, they should get out completely. Not keep their options open as they seem to want. Give up their titles, not receive any money or security from the taxpayers and repay the millions they used to refurbish Frogmore. Everything from now on should be on their own dime. It is reported the have approx £34M between them. Let’s face it they are going to make a fortune, celebs and companies will be falling over themselves to give them freebies.
My thoughts exactly - if they want out - get out, but don't expect any money from the Crown or the taxpayer. Let them pay their own way, let them deal with TSA and Passport Control when they fly back and forth across the Atlantic like the rest of us! No special treatment!

They are not treated like everyone else. Just read the press or this thread. They deserve monetary compensation for that kind of treatment.

As for the suggestion they repay the cost of refurbs to Frogmore Cottage, get a ****ing grip. It's a grade 2 listed building that needed serious updates and it cost UK taxpayers less than 1p each to do and the place is not theirs, it's still owned by the Crown.

Why is a German Prince heading to British North America ? Would the Duchy of Saxe-Coburg-Weimar not be more fitting ?

They will probably make a mint of money doing the Chelsea Clinton and Hunter Biden thing. I see Harry sitting on the boards of big corporations of whose business he knows F.A about. Meghan will be piling up the money being interviewed by simpering TV talk show hosts or flogging her boring memoirs on her life amongst the Royals

Absolutely true and the same accounting logic applies to the Queen & Buckingham palace, and other royal residences etc. Even if we had some dismal Israeli-style presidency, those buildings would have to be maintained and refurbished etc. No way in fact or ethics do the members of the royal family owe this to the taxpayer.

I rarely post here but that is really nasty post, do you have and hard evidence to prove your statement is true.

As an aside it's interesting that the most negatives voices on this thread are men, maybe they are all jealous that he snagged an attractive and talented woman
