It seems so.
I hear the silence from the Clooney clan and a few other high profile wedding guest who I would have expected to jump to their defence.
I think the whole interview was a 'short term win' that could eventually lead to a loss.
They will be seen as as a couple who will sell out their friends, family and anyone who either displeases them,or for simple revenge and nastiness, not forgetting dollars.
Their self-made buddies and neighbours will most likely be very wary, knowing that H & M can change like the wind, and tell all to Auntie Oprah and Gayle. The mega celebs don't like blabbers, and although they may seem to fit in, they will never be really accepted.
Their talent to launch them into stardom has been nothing but vindictiveness, in the absence of a any other marketable talent excluding titles,and does seem very shallow and unsustainable.

These are excellent points.

The true A listers do not get into this in public, I did see it mentioned that they had no real connection with them prior to the wedding.

Now, well Oprah it what she does for a job, the others?

Discreet and Meghan do not really go together.

I had a fair bit of sympathy for Meghan because I really did think she got a rough deal with the press and lord knows marrying into the RF must be a shock for anyone's system. That sympathy disappeared as I watched snippets of the interview.
Harry's new job seems to be as worthwhile as Nick Clegg's at FB .

Scamp - you really are coming over as a bit angry yourself - grab a chilled glass of Pimms.

Harry’s new job/s - ‘Royal Title for Rent’. He has no qualifications. He has no experience. All he has is his Royal Titles...from the family he appears to dislike so much and couldn’t wait to get away from. Same applies to his wife.

I was actually surprised Oprah got herself involved. She's usually more savvy than this.

Nothing, just dropped back in to this shambles of a thread. Just amazes me how angry people can get over literally nothing. I'm not furious, I'm laughing at you, a deep hearty chuckle.

Are people who comment on this thread really angry, ot just posting 'THEIR TRUTH AND THEIR LIVED EXPERIENCE ? Isn't that what a forum is?

After all when we rake away the the identity of the main players we are left with a family squbble. If we do that it's a Jeremy Kyle show without the ermine.

A middle aged man, his new wife and child living in Granny and grandads large house with the extended family.
Squabbles about bridesmaid dresses, sister in laws having a spat, moans about favouritism and pecking order etc.
His father can't be arsed talking to him anymore so doesn't take his calls.

This second son and missus feel they are being treated differently from number one son, who will eventually inherit the whole lot from granny.
second son decides to move away and not work in the family business anymore , but wishes to still be 'a representative' of the firm and keep all the perks of the job.
They go and stay in a mates place until they can find their own house.
Second son feels and more importantly his wife feel aggrieved that nodody asked the she was ok.
They decide to go on the TV, as one of the guests at their wedding has more than a foot in the door, and get get them a slot.

General dishing the dirt especially from the wife, who fortunately is 'person of colour' so can throw the race card in as well as mental health issues.
Granny's house don't comment, which is a shame, they also refuse to do the lie detector test, they just release a short statement, which tells nothing.


Then the royals fought back.

It's going to be interesting to see if Prince Harry goes back to the UK for his grandfather's funeral. Somehow, I cannot see Meghan going - Harry will probably go alone.

Yes... interesting question.

All eyes will be watching. If Meghan doesn't go, she is no longer a royal in any meaningful sense. It utterly burns any remaining bits of the bridge she hasn't already destroyed. But I also imagine certain figures in the BRF don't want Meghan at the funeral either. However, if Harry boy turns up without the wife, it also speaks volumes.

I'm pretty sure the woke duo never contemplated what they'd do at a moment like this.

He piloted Apache gunships in the Army, so he does have some qualifications. He can always just live off the investment from his wealth and take up another profession.
