    My first giggle of the morning - yay ! :p Great posts !

    @Gloria Mitchell - what you have stated - we have already said - they can go and do their own thing but they way they did this
    was unforgiveable when they were given all that they wanted. 'Respect' was sadly lacking on their part.

    How do we really know that Harry and Meagan did not talk about it to the Royal Family first....we all know we cannot trust any News media these days! Harry and Meagan probably just want to be able to "live" their own lives without being told how to do just that all the time. And I'm sure Harry wants what is best for his wife and child and if being a Royal isn't the best for them...then I understand why after losing his mother....he would do anything to not lose his wife and child too. Maybe they didn't follow Royal instructions for how to step out of the Royal life...but they are young... living and loving is more important to them than a bunch of rules and regulations. I think they are doing what is best for them and I hope they will be happy and prosper in their choices.

    @Babs Hunt - I agree but why do all the Royal stuff initially when they were fully aware of what being 'Royal' meant.
    The Queen herself stated she did 'not know' until the morning the news broke (on social media)

    I don't think any of us are hearing the truth and nothing but the truth in this situation. No matter how Harry and Meagan handled this matter...the News media is going to twist and turn things to suit theirselves... that's just how it is now days. I don't really think Meagan knew what she would be going through until she did walk in those shoes. And Harry might have grown up living the Royal life...but that does not mean he wants his marriage or family life having to live that way too. I think this young family has a right to find where they need and want to be...regardless of what the Royals and everyone else thinks they should do. Look how miserable Princess Diana was in her life with the Royals...I surely don't want that for any of her children or their families.

    I don't believe anyone would argue that the young family has the right to live as they choose. (Except maybe the rest of the royal family.) It seems to me that if they truly want to live like regular folks, they need to get off the royal dole and give up their "Frogmore cottage" mansion, security detail, "allowance," etc. Why should regular Brits pay for any of that?

    Besides that, what a security nightmare since terrorists would see them as easy prey. There is a lot to be considered, and Meghan should have realized what she was getting into.

    It doesn't affect me one way or the other; I actually couldn't care less. But it's obviously much more complicated than simply packing up and moving.

    Absolutely right and I too couldn't care as I once did, let them go for sure and make their own way in life
    Its also 'obvious' what the duties entailed and she was willing to a certain point .........

    I think Harry and Meagan will find a lot has to be done to have their freedom...or to have as much freedom as possible. It won't be easy but I wish them well.

    This is the only thing I agree with Meghan on - her Father is a disgrace

    Wallis Simpson did her best to bring the monarchy down in 1936.
