She is not amused

Her Majesty the Queen of England is observably getting tired of Megan Markle's antics:
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex must drop their 'Sussex Royal' label after deciding to step down as working royals. Following lengthy and complex talks, the Queen and senior officials are believed to have agreed it is no longer tenable for the couple to keep the word 'royal' in their 'branding'.

Harry and Meghan have spent tens of thousands of pounds on a new Sussex Royal website to complement their hugely popular Instagram feed.

They have also sought to register Sussex Royal as a global trademark for a range of items and activities, including clothing, stationery, books and teaching materials.

In addition, they have taken steps to set up a new charitable organisation: Sussex Royal, The Foundation of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.

It has now been made clear that they will need to 're-brand'.
It would probably be a wise idea to steer well clear of Paris, too. Especially if Markle is dumb enough to defy the Queen and use it anyhow.

Meghan, the very definition of the kind of woman that one's mother, father, brothers, sisters, cousins, friends, associates and complete strangers warn people about.

Blogger TheMaleRei February 18, 2020 9:03 PM  

And, of course, this was Meghan's plan all along. She's smart enough to love and other bomb, Harry into asking her for marriage - she had to have some idea what sort of life being a royal was. She no doubt thought it smothering, restrictive, repressive, and more.

No doubt she also thought herself a kind of liberated woman who thought to bring the British Royal Family into the Current Year.

And the Queen, bless her, is having none of it.

There is a certain amount of mileage in being anti royal family. Princess Diana was or played the victim. And there is no such thing as bad publicity when you are selling stuff. I wonder what sort of power the queen has? I would think more in England than in other places.

i note, with amusement, that no one seems overly concerned that pedophile Prince Andrew was simply allowed to retire from public life.

i consider it an instructive illustration of the Queen Mother's moral standards and lack thereof.

also, notice that this is another example of Get Woke, Go Broke.

the Queen Mum wanted her virtue points so bad, she allowed Harry to marry a wildly unsuitable woman. and she got something less than a year of "good" publicity for it.

hope she thinks it was worth it.

Let's not be too hasty praising that queen, or that particular royal family. Whilst I support the constitutional concept of monarchy on principle, I'm no fan of that inbred house of Hannover.

How woke the queen of England initially invited that failed Hollywood divorcee into her midst. Has a bit of a cuckservative feel to it now that Megan went "too far".

How that royal family sides with the 0bamas, Clintons, Bushes.

How that queen not only defends, nay visibly celebrates her son Andrew, the prince with the underage prostitute habit (whether willing or forced prostitution I do not know ; neither is it relevant for underage prostitutes afaik).

Soo...., yes the English queen considers Megxit "too far" but she's hardly redpilled /our girl/.

"Teaching materials?"

How to transform yourself and your life from permanent A+++ list to D-list has-beens in under a year.

--

"I'm endlessly amused Meghan Markle is an actual threat to the Queen."

She isn't. Markle is a threat to Harry. For the rest of the family, she's just a pest. She could have died of "food poisoning from some ill-timed shellfish" with a couple other members of the household and staff taking some ipecac to make it from look convincing and not like a hit.

Along my theory that Merkle is an example of Borderline Personality Disorder, this serves her in one way by adding to the wall between Harry and the rest of his family, adding to his isolation and further reducing lines of communication.

The Queen correctly perceived that what Merkle wants most is to be called "royalty," and this move just torpedoed that.

I believe, however, that the Queen has realized (or been informed by some psychologists) fully what Merkle's strategy is, and this move is not so much to drive Harry away, but to put a wedge between Merkle and everything *she* craves.

This is basically, a "you can have Harry, but you don't get a single penny of the benefits that would ordinarily come with him" move. She isn't getting to live in a castle, or anything remotely close to the size or resemblance of a modern one (Windsor, Blenheim, etc.) Worse for her, it's looking like a puny (compared to her aspirations) "McMansion" with no household staff in some sort of no-name exurb in the middle of the Great White North -- a place which is not to her liking in both culture and climate, nor hardly the kind of place where other floozies would want to hang out and pal around with her.
The BEST climate in Canada that she could find would be around Vancouver, B.C. on the west coast, but just like Portland and Seattle, it rains nearly every day.

After a couple of typically brutal Canadian winters, Meghan will decide that life was better when she was a hired whore on some oil sheik's yacht.

As long as the Queen pursues this course, Meghan will file for divorce before the Queen dies. Then there will be a "prodigal son" morality play, not so much to punish Harry as to get him to more circumspect with respect to who he allows to be around him.

As for whoever put her into his life, I'm sure that person is utterly amused by all of this, as it in no way could have occurred by happen-stance. If Meghan was at the same party or other get-together with Harry, whoever invited them there deliberately put a whore in his midst.

One thing's for sure, Harry isn't the sort of heartless creep who uses people and tosses them away like his uncle (?) Prince Andrew.

Ordinarily, I'm with you.

I never cared for the Diana soap opera, or any of that.

This, however, grabs my attention, because it's a situation which is so typical of that experienced by normal people when a a family member is targetted for matrimonial exploitation by someone with Borderline Personality Disorder.

Why? Because it's a very good lesson -- the press is documenting so much of it. If they aren't divorced in a couple of years, look for Harry to become a recluse, and rumors of Meghan committing violence against him when nobody's around. It will start with him going to the store to buy something, with otherwise inexplicable bruising or contusions on his face, or a hokey story about an "accident" as explanation for why he was taken to the hospital in an ambulance. Then after he's recovered, there will be a very public outing, where she's the thoroughly attentive and doting wife, who never, ever could have struck her husband on the head with a kitchen implement.

I pity Harry. It's going to get a LOT worse for him before it gets better (her leaving).

Why are their names all over the place? Because Ryan Seacrest pumps out Kardashian sewage on a daily basis, and the press, being the lazy, immoral scum that they are, gladly broadcasts and publishes all of it. The Kardashians aren't smart enough to pull off all of this BS. Seacrest is the evil mastermind behind all of it.

My wife liked the Crown show and got up at 3 to watch both weddings. In my opinion, following the show is no worse than the Hollywood slimepit of stars

From what I can tell from all that plus the what I have read about the scandals, the current royals are mostly scum, Charles is as likely the capo as his mother, Harry is the only one with actual balls to serve in combat, and...

Megan. She was a pretty good looking light skinned in Hollywood. I bet she was actually physically attacked and browbeaten by the best. Once she found out the Queen and Charles were bad people I can see her having the experience and backbone to make and implement other plans.

Harry was raised to be number 2 and was never the family star, plus he so obviously isn't Charles's son it must have been terrible for him with Chuckie...but appears to be a good, brave soldier and ground combat company grade officer, so he can do the right thing.

Do they want to be kicked out of the Royal family permanently? Keep carrying on.

Blogger Akulkis February 22, 2020 2:59 AM  

"Do they want to be kicked out of the Royal family permanently? Keep carrying on."

Marketing product lines based on a "personal brand" isn't what comes from a guy whose income and lifestyle came from the family he was born in, in exchange for life of varying sorts of public service... That's the type of thing you get from a mass-media celebrity, from the same culture that says, "any press is good press" where legitimate due to accomplishment is no more valuable than press-release driven and insipied Kardashian/Hilton-style "oops, I 'accidentally' passed around my sex video on hundreds of thumb drives" forms of notoriety.

But this is obviously short-term thinking, though, which is characteristic of my previous conclusions that this whole thing is a result of Meaghan's personality disorder and Harry being her target of pseudo-affection.

Watch for:
1) Whatever the product line is, it will blow up some years down the road. Meaghan's dealings with business partners will be fundamentally dishonest. It will come out that not just one or two business partners feel betrayed, but instead, that all or nearly all of the business partners, by that time, will consider Meaghan to be untrustworthy, will never do business with her again, and will recommend that nobody else do so, either.

2) More than likely, the blow-up will be caused by Meaghan eventually short-changing suppliers and possibly shippers, too. She'll claim that the line wasn't as profitable as hoped, and so she couldn't pay the bills. If any forensic accounting is done, it will be revealed that she was just taking money out of the business, well above the target profit margin. Because this sort of personality disorder is notoriously bad at handling money -- whatever they can get their hands on, they spend it just as quickly, with no set-asides for upcoming bills to be paid. She'll probably attempt to clear some short-term debts with her body, so to speak.


(Compare with: Martha Stewart "Martha Stewart Living". In negotiations, she deliberately led KMart execs to believe that the intent was for the MSL product line to be sold exclusively through KMart stores(*). Imagine the anger when MSL products showed up at other stores. I have no reason to believe that she didn't pull the same trick, resulting in the same sense of betrayal with all of the other retail chains as well. Those with "higher" reputations must have been aghast to see the same MSL products they were selling on KMart's shelves.

(*) I worked at KMart headquarters at the time. This is how I know about the MS - Kmart negotiations. The buyers were not keeping it a secret that they considered Martha Stewart to be deliberately misleading and fundamentally dishonest.
