    Maybe Elton John should offset some of the bad publicity she brings on herself

    I completely disagree.

    When Meghan and Harry got together the reaction from the vast majority of people was a positive one.
    When they married thousands and thousands of of people lined the streets in support.
    It was widely felt that she was a fantastic thing to happen to the Royal family.

    No, all the criticism of Meghan has happened since she and Harry started lecturing people on how they should live whilst behaving in a hypocritical way themselves.
    Harry is getting just as much criticism over this too, although people do seem to believe that Meghan is behind most of it and that Harry is totally beguilled by his wife.
    I tend to think there's some validity in this, although Harry is understandably a very troubled guy, particularly with the press and their role in her death.

    Whilst there are always racists who will jump on these things, I don't believe her colour or ethnicity have anything to do with all the criticism.

    If they want to leave royal duties that's entirely up to them. However, they can't continue to receive tax payer and Royal money if they do imo.

    Man convicted of unprovoked homophobic attack on Guardian journalist Owen Jones:
    ‘’One item of memorabilia found in Healy’s home featured a “sun cross” – a white supremacist symbol – used by White Pride Worldwide with the “whatever it takes” motto of Combat 18 and “lead the way” used by the banned Loyalist Volunteer Force. Another said “Chelsea FC, no asylum seekers” .

    The collection also included a black flag, bearing a “totenkopf” deaths head symbol, used by the Nazi SS, and the letters CYF, standing for Chelsea Youth Firm, a hooligan group associated with the west London football club. Healy had a tattoo associated with the group on his right arm, the court also heard.’’

    you’re welcome to your opinion but say that Harry is totally beguiled by his wife has no foundation other than what the media has been pushing. They support certain causes and whilst I can see certain hypocrisy’s if by managing to bring more good by cutting a corner or two is well worth it, same with Greta if she as much as farts people scream hypocrite, yet she has managed to get a vitally important issue to the public stage like nobody else has.

    The racism thing, I don’t believe that everyone who dislikes her is racist by any of the stretch of the image however there’s no doubt that is one of probably several factors as to why several do. Aren’t they planning to be financially independent?

    If he uses that what’s the problem? Do you not think other non ‘active’ royals do that? If you don’t like it don’t buy the products. Surely after what being a royal all his life has put him through I’d have no problem with him taking a little back.

    We're not talking a little here, but a multi million dollar industry whereby the Sussexex sell the Royal name for profit worldwide. If they try, I hope they get sued by The Crown which must surely own the rights.

    Im confused? We were told by our resident experts on here that all the companies/banking would leave the UK and set up in Frankfurt <laugh> and the EU, remember? When I look at todays EU news it is full of gloom regarding it's not so bright future and decline. Remember the guy from Ryan air saying he would be off?
    What's happened resident experts?


    Hundreds of EU companies rush to enter Britain as January 31 nears

    What do you need to fear? Unemployment is down again. The pound has moved up against the Euro and will continue too after we are free from 'The club'. The country is getting in record investment... especially in the city and the economy will get stronger.
    There has been no catastrophe that was predicted and life will go on.
