Maybe Buck House would make a nice car park.

Was there already plans to do so? If so did they include all the upgrades that were done for the Sussexes?

Because some people need to get a life, and until they manage to do so have to settle with picking at other people's.

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.

Maybe he could dress up in a Generals/ Air Marshalls/ Admirals uniforms and fly round the globe taking some salutes - or do the Oscars / Golden Globes as a meeter/greeter ?
.... Few quid in plus expenses there

Another thing I find interesting which seems to be going over people's head is that they (Harry and Meghan) have left Archie aged 8 months old with her best friend in Canada. Not a word has been mentioned about the parenting.

Then he can give up his title, the financial benefits and at least have the decency to disrespect his mother and country . It seems he is dominated by this grown up baby Meghan. What next a reality show for Meghan ?

Did he become a more sympathetic figure because his investments took a bit of a tumble and he lost his Billionaire status so is now worth "only" £95,000,000?
More like why are these two held in such contempt when his Uncle Andy ****s kids? The Palace are supposely 'disappointed' to learn about Harry, but raping children is just fine apparently.

The core issue here imo is both these two people (who aren't exactly typical) have been on the inside of this fossilised institution and concluded not only that it's irrelevant, but they, and their child, shouldn't be controlled by it.
And let's face, they're not the first. - right???

Maybe they're just trying to get the poor kid away from Uncle Andy
