Always good for a laugh.
"Meghan's chief crime is not to share the wealth and opulence that
defines royal life, but to be deemed a fifth columnist: a woman of
colour who epitomises the encroachment of the progressive values that
are articles of faith for so many younger Britons. She has
accordingly suffered her punishment beating. But a word of warning.
Yes, the Tory right now has a majority, is drunk on power: minorities
and their defenders are expected to get back in their box. But a
younger generation that passionately believes in such values is going
nowhere and, in the end, will win. Deep down, the culture warriors
know that, and it is that insecurity that drives their viciousness."
I agree with Owen Jones. He contends that the British public and media
don't like the alien values Meghan Markle wants to bring. Nothing wrong
with that. Our tradition is fine and we should be proud to maintain it.
Meghan and Owen Jones should accept she can't force her foreign

The fact Meghan has some non-European ancestry and then married into a

I have read in numerous articles, prior to this, that William (and to a
lesser extent Charles) was intending to introduce a much reformed and
slimmed down monarchy; and at the same time save a lot of money by
selling off unwanted properties which only remain because of the
Queens last-century-style reign.
The William version of the monarchy would be more akin to the Dutch
example; with much less pomp and formality and it is unlikely that
Sandringham or Balmoral would be required - something Her Maj would
Therefore the tactful solution was to wait until Brenda had shuffled off
to meet her maker, therefore sparing her the horror of seeing her cosy
world of 'Christmas here, Easter there, Summer Holiday up there, and

However, here comes Meghan Markle with her laid back American ideas and
gets into Harrys head with the are you really going to wait for
Liz and maybe Charles to be 6ft under before you even think about
reform? mantra. I suppose her thinking is that with Williams three
children ahead of him, Harry becoming an annexe to the family is not
going to cause too much of an upheaval - except maybe to the Daily Mail,
Daily Express and Gold Stick In Waiting, but they ought to be able to
cope with frequent cardiac arrests.
I'm not so sure.
Markle lacks tradition and royal style. Rather than adopt these things,
conform to her world view. The rift between her and Kate probably speaks
