I thought timing is insensitive to hold such media events what with Prince Philip being ill or something?  Well so the likes of Nicholas Witchell et al said last week.

To be fair its unlikely that they will be calling themselves a gang of c*nts. Something which hopefully Meghan and Harry will do.

It's to do with 'Commonwealth' day or something - it was always planned for today. Queen sits in a palace and is recorded telling everyone how she finds tales of inspiration in our common lives. Then she trundles off with the Corgis and counts her wealth.

As if she sits around counting her wealth. She has people to do that for her.

Christ, everyone seems to have shit opinions on this. My wife wants to watch the interview, people at work are talking about it, who gives a shit? Apart from me, enough to post in here obviously. :D

Yes its unlikely to be good because its their new mate doing the interview so it will be one sided like a gossip mag. But it would be good if she really had a go at the Queen, the press and Britain itself, just for the anger it would generate.

So now the Royal Family are doing a broadcast an hour or so before the Megan interview praising the worlds health care workers. That to me (as a caveat I am cynical as they come) just seems like they are just using the cause to show how gracious and lovely they are in showering praise on them and showing the world they are nice people before Megan gets her say.

I honestly don’t give a fuck about any of them but stunts like this seem desperate.

https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2021/mar/06/royals-to-show-united-front-before-harry-and-meghans-oprah-interview

To be fair it'll probably go over quite well.  Some of them are shocking, but the queen by and large has been quite solid throughout her life on public service and as a country we do like her a lot more than other nations like their monarchs.  No doubt H&M took a fine fee for this Oprah interview so wouldn't surprise me if they went hard on the NHS workers and 'it being necessary to support them' whilst news comes out as to how much Oprah paid for the interview will erode some of the sympathy.   Particularly if Johnson can pull off a u-turn (he's good at them by now).

Yeah, like the inquiry into Meghans alleged bully the timing does seem questionable to put it kindly. Personally if I was the Firms PR guy I would just have kept quiet, say nothing and wait for what comes out of the interview and then issue a bland statement about how much they value Harry and Meghan as cherished grandchildren and leave it at that.

She is getting amazing PR anyway. They are able to forge a career outside the Royal Family that they couldn’t in it, all these media deals and still call themselves the Duke and Duchess.

I was talking about the Royal family.  They're not coming out of this looking well at all to anybody that isn't a sycophant.  Having a black Princess and having her be accepted, look at how 21st Century the Royals are, etc etc.  It's an easy sell and if she's annoying then whatever she's not going to do anything important anyway.  I suppose there is a large racist Tory element that would never have gone along with it but maybe I'm misreading the Tories from afar (haha).  Anyway, really don't care at all just find it really humorous.

Oh yeah the royally fucked things up but then it once again illustrates what a ridiculous institution they are. I find it laughable how this country just adores them and its always shit to see even young people support their existence.

The Royal Family can get to fuck. Glad I don't live in a country that worships and obsesses over a "monarchy" because it's absolutely embarrassing. It's 2021 not 1721, wake the fuck up.

I don't care much for Harry or Megan and this does kind of smack of some kind of PR exercise to raise their profile, but in a way I'm glad they're exposing the Royal Family for the arrogant bunch of hypocrites they really are.

Harry and Meghan will obviously get more out of this than the Royals, who are coming across as an even more archaic, racist and obsolete institution that has no place in a 21st century society. Maybe this wakes up a few Americans who click on Daily Mail articles for celebrity gossip about what the tabloids are all about. That said, Meghan has come across as naive during parts of this.

Perhaps he meant naive as in she thought she was entering this fairy tale world when the reality was much different.

Yeah this whole 'firm' business is an eye opener. Don't pay any attention to the royals so not had any clue about this, interesting to understand how there are lots of other things at play. The racist comments an most other stuff is pretty expected. Hope they name who it was talking about the baby's skin colour; my house, car and life savings are on Phillip.

I expected this to be more a PR puff piece, but it's actually been quite explosive, which is likely why the monarchy's PR machine has been in overdrive the last week or so. Not sure how they spin this outside of they're lying. This is an absolute PR disaster for the royal family.

US coverage seems to think it's going to lead to the end of the monarchy, I'm not seeing much to it which wasn't known beforehand. Quid pro quo with press. Racism in the royal family. And an institution overwhelmingly concerned with keeping up appearances at enormous human cost to those inside it in return for a life where falling from grace is landing in a multimillion pound house somewhere else. Would still be more cost effective to replace them with a family of cats.

I think you have to remember the American media has a glossy fairytale conception of the royal family. Most networks have a royal correspondent, often with ties to the tabloids. Their interest is mainly through the prism of wealth, glamour, celebrity, gossip, pomp and circumstance. Their approach doesn't provide any sense of institutional entrenchment or the backstabbing outside of The Crown. The hyperbolic U.S response is a byproduct of that.  But again, maybe this opens up a few eyes to see how much of a fossilized institition it is.

Although more likely the U.S. morning shows will focus on the family melodrama among the Windsors and Kate Middleton rather than than the links between the monarchy and the tabloids, or Harry's remarks about how the system works

Props to Harry and Megan, at least they gave the interview with some class and humility, unlike Randy Andy did.

And if theres any truth to what they said, the Royals are a bigger gang of racist shithouses than I thought. Utter c*nts.

Looking at some of the reports it doesnt sound that explosive. I wanted names and looks like she only got as far as saying Kate made her cry once.
