Go ahead, call that "bluff"

It's going to be an interesting debate for future generations. Who was more stupid, Prince Harry or Meghan Markle?
Meghan Markle has told friends there is nothing 'legally stopping' her and Prince Harry from using their Sussex Royal name, despite the Queen banning them from using it, DailyMail.com has learned.

The 38-year-old complained to her inner circle that using the name 'shouldn't even be an issue in the first place and it's not like they want to be in the business of selling T-shirts and pencils,' the insider said.

They added: 'Meghan said she's done with the drama and has no room in her life for naysayers, and the same goes for Harry.'

On Tuesday, DailyMail revealed the Queen and senior officials agreed the two could no longer keep the word 'royal' in their 'branding', despite the likely thousands of dollars Meghan and Harry have already sunk into their website and trademark applications.
There was nothing "legally stopping" Princess Diana from driving through that tunnel in Paris either....

This IS a real race to the bottom. No smart person makes the claim of "legally stopping" or not without consulting with an attorney. And I'd bet long odds that Markle has not. She's not cautious enough.

On the other hand, Harry was dumber than a bag of rocks to marry that self-absorbed moron to begin with. You do NOT find quality wife material in Hollywood.

It's a car wreck even before they've actually gotten in the car.

IIRC the college girl who eventually married that other royal had posters of him on her dorm wall, dreamed of becoming princess, had an amazing figure (for a brit), etc.

Harry could have had it all.

Threw it away.

Why?

Subversion.

Blogger CarpeOro February 21, 2020 1:22 PM  

I've read only a small amount about the Harry and Meghan train wreck, as I've never had interest in current royal families. Much of what I have read has been on this blog. That being said, somehow Meghan just seems to keep lowering the bar and my interest. You don't want the responsibilities of being a titular member of the royal family, then you don't use the word pertaining to yourself in any way. If you don't want to be a Royal of Sussex don't use the name.

Probably thought she was "done with drama" when she quit acting, too. People like her *are* drama.

Triggering post, Vox!

With that being said, I'm sure Canada will proudly welcome the ''Royals'' as political refugees seeking a safe harbor from the Evil Queen's unfair copyright witch-hunt that she, at this very moment, is planning to unleash on poor them.

In return, ''Megarry'' will also give us a much needed protection, namely a protection from ourselves, simpleton manants so prone to fall into unexplainable nationalism and undescribable intolerance!


P.S. I think we give to much credit to Meghan for the current situation; Harry has said in the past he wanted to get away from the family business, but that he couldn't...

If it weren't for England's current crisis and the meteoric rise of Brexit, I wouldn't care less. I am quite interested to see how it pans out now. We Americans generally scoff at British royalty, but given our own nationalism being under serious attack and in terrible shape, you'd think Americans would see the parallels and be rooting for our cousin's triumph.

It reminds me of a meme in which a boat has holes punched on one end, and is nearly vertical as it sinks. The passengers on the side sinking first are the gun owners in blue states, panicking. The passengers on the side sinking soon after, are the gun owners in red states mocking the former.

I wish other Americans would stop being jackals and recognize that we aren't as different from our European cousins as we'd like to think. The triumph and revitalization of their nationalism should be of importance to us.

Demanding independence from the British is not at all the same as recognizing we are more alike than not. Your reply is precisely what I was talking about. Americans confuse the sovereignty we won from Britain with the makeup of our respective peoples. The first is separate by nature, the second is anything but.

@31- The Queen couldn't stop them getting married, but if they do so against her veto, Harry could not inherit the crown and any descendents he might produce would be out of the line of succession.

I wager that would have been disincentive enough. Then again, his (supposed) great-great uncle gave up the actual crown for marriage.
