I’m no fan of any of them, including Meghan and Harry if I’m honest but is it really so news worthy?

They wanted to move to the US so they did. People complained (rightly in my opinion) about the amount of tax payers money it was costing to support them so they started earning their own money, and fair play to them for that. Both of these mean they can’t be ‘full time’ Royals, so they no longer are (which was inevitable after last years ruckus). They may not have the Royal positions, but as they pointed out they can still carry on doing charity work and support good causes. The good causes may change but there’s more then enough good causes for both the Windsors and Sussexes to support.

Everyone is getting more or less what they want, so what’s the issue?

Definitely agree about the elected Upper Chamber but dread to think who we'd elect as Head of State.

Probably Farage or someone from Geordie Shore.

Or Gwyneth Paltrow.

Pay no attention to it as I couldn’t give a shit but credit to them for removing themselves from the tiresome shite that goes on in the royal family. The missus was watching that Netflix thing on Diana recently and could you imagine if she’d done what they’re doing back in the 90s? Would have been absolute murder, so credit to them for hopefully setting a precedent that it’s okay not to live like a ‘royal’ just because you’re born into it.

Quite like Meghan Markle as an actress to be honest, she was excellent in Suits.

Harry is quite a good looking kid, seems a decent sort and is, well, a Prince. It doesn't seem outlandish that he'd end up with her.

I don't mind either of them to be honest.  Fair play to her for standing up for herself and to him for putting his family first.

I'm puzzled that they are 'trying to get out of the limelight'. Yet working for Netflix. Why can't they just go work for McDonald's? I suppose that's totally unrealistic, but at least stay behind the cameras?

I can't say I much care about 'The Royals' (or 'former Royals), but neither of them seem like bad people. And given Harry's background and upbringing, that's probably far better than we might/could/should expect.

These arguments around publicity and limelight are just silly. Firstly, their options for the kind of income required for the upkeep of their security (and yes, to keep them in the style to which they are accustomed) is very limited. Secondly, there surely is a difference between types of publicity and limelight. I would suggest that being totally in control of how, through what outlets you use, and types of public appearances is quite different to that of a standard public outing as 'A Royal'.

Of course we could react by saying, they are privileged Royals - fuck 'em. But Harry was born into his family - he had no say in it. But as an adult, he wants out - well, as best he can manage at least.

I can't quite believe I am bothering to post about this - I do not follow the goings-on of celebrities (and Royals least of all). But a lot of what is posted here strikes me as silly and wholly absent of appreciating their circumstances (of birth). And given that, there is probably quite a lot to admire in the couple compared to both of their wider families.

We all know that academically Harry didn't exactly shine, but he has served with distinction in the military and had the respect of his colleagues.

I think a wife like Megan is exactly what he needs. Someone savvy, and grounded in the real world.

I'm no fan of the royals, but he's showing more initiative than most of them. Publicity for them is inevitable, so why not at least have a say in how they're exposed to it?

I remember when him and William had to go out in front of hundreds of crying people because THEIR mum had been killed.  Terrible thing to expect of two teenage boys that they couldn't be allowed to grieve in peace.

It is quite possible to hate all of them without being branded a racist Royalist or a Royal hating snowflake.

The Queen and the monarchy are a gang of c*nts but Harry and Meghan are only getting this level of publicity because of Harry’s links to that shit institution. All of them are a bunch of leeches.

That said, I am definitely watching that interview. Hopefully there is some good gossip.

How do you think most people would turn out after the kind of upbringing Harry had? The fact that he appears to not be a monumental asshole is an accomplishment in the circumstances. That's all. Plus, I deliberately contrasted each of them with their wider, respective families. Or, perhaps, you feel that Harry (and you) are not in anyway a product of your upbringing.

I don't know about her family. In fact she hasn't done anything wrong and done what many people would do, which is cash in on his links. Of all the people involved in all this, she is completely fine.

He however, is just another Royal sponge. Yeah he went and joined the army (hardly a example of amazing public service, there are more pressing causes he could have helped with) and from his public profile he doesn't seem a massive dickhead. But he is a Royal leech, just like the rest of them.

Not condoning it, but plenty of Royals have served in the armed forces.  You only have to look at his dad and (allegedly) nonce uncle.  I remember Prince Edward quit the marines after three days.

And like I said earlier, he seems to have earned the respect of those fighting alongside him, so whilst we can debate his motives for joining, he seems to have been someone other soldiers were prepared to trust their lives with. That's not a small matter.

They’ve played the game allright. Once William had his kids, Harry joined the rest of the leechers in the “minor royal and will never be king in any circumstances” crew. Married the 6th best actor from Suits and then “leaves” the family. (But is still funded via the money his dad steals from the Duchy of Cornwall. Just as bad as the rest of them.

Royals normally join the Military and at least he didn't shirk his responsibility and actually did 2 tours in Afghan until a certain rag blew the secrecy. He's heavily involved in the Invictus games. William also flew air sea rescue from RAF Valley and flew the East Anglian Air Ambulance for 2 years.

I'm no fan of the Monarchy at all, but at least this fella and his brother do things that benefit others, rather than just sit and do fuck all like the rest of them.
