    So just to be clear, she hasn't yet sold out the royal family yet and we are in the territory of we think she is about to sell out the royal family?

    She falls out with everyone in her life. First husband, father, all her aides. Apparently there was no one from her youth at her wedding apart from her mother, and no family member but her mother. She's ruthless and cuts people out of her life if they are no help to her reaching her ambitions. Lovely

    What do you think she will talk about with Oprah? Knitting? Suits?

    She's already caused big trouble for Harry's family by the way she and Harry cut themselves off. Not the doing of it, but the way it was done

    I was just interested in whether it was done yet or not. She might be going onto Oprah to speak about her own life, certainly possible to do an interview and just give no comments to any question about the royal family.

    They have cut themselves off from the royal family and obviously something went very wrong there. What was wrong with the way it was done? My recollection of the events were that:

    They said they didn't want to do any royal duties
    something about them feeling they were mistreated by the media
    told they queen they were moving out
    repaid monies for whatever place they were living in
    ****ed off to canada.

    Maybe i'm being too simplistic about it but what in the manner was wrong with that apart from it breaking royal tradition as not many royals say that don't want to be following the tradition and sponging off the tax payer?

    I don't care enough to get into a debate about an ex-celebrity ex-Royal now celebrity....but surely everyone's* favourite all time royal has to be Edward I? Crushed the Welsh, hammered the Scots - what's not to love?

    *Our resident Scot perhaps an honourable exception.

    There was a bit more to it. They gave no notice of what they were doing to anyone. There was no consultation with the Queen, Charles or William, let along Buck House. Meghan complained on camera that no one in Harry's family asked her how she was. Harry was upset that his photo was not on display during the Queen's message. They refused to show anyone their baby unless there was money in it. And they flounced out of Frogmore Cottage that had been carefully tailored to them. Since then they've written a book seeking to justify their actions.The whole thing stinks of bad manners and bad feeling

    Half of them on here wouldn’t even know who he was. It would have been better if you mentioned Femi,Lord Adonis and Greta Funbags.:emoticon-0100-smile

    Good job I'm not Scottish then! <laugh>

    Personally, I think all Royals are ****s, but they are a neccessary evil in our country, wouldn't want to see us become a republic with a president...and that's a whole different argument

    None of them are Royals though so that wouldn’t have really worked.

    Slightly creepy nickname for a teenager.

    Apart from that, decent gag.

    Can’t help but feel Gavin Williamson, as one of the ****ter ministers, could have better things to do right now than create arguments over universities. What do the people he’s trying to appeal to really think happens on campuses?

    she is creepy. She scares the crap out of kids!
    I guess at least Edward I didn't book a first class ticket on a train then put his stuff in the hallway and take a picture with the caption 'overcrowded' only for the German rail company to say 'her seat was in first class unused'?

    Didn’t say you did, but someone else did that, would you say that’s fair?
