I CHANGED MY MIND ABOUT MEGHAN AND HARRY

 Gentle Readers . . . and Maxwell,

As I mentioned after Meghan and Harry's interview with Oprah, I felt sympathy for them. They had a right to defend themselves! The British press picked on her! She didn't have any preparation to be a royal! 

I suppose I'm stirring a pot that no longer boils because it isn't even on the burner, but I have changed my mind about those two and now think that instead of being called The Duke and Duchess of Sussex, they should be known as The Duke and Duchess of Go-Suck-It, because that's pretty much what they told Harry's family.

Is that a design on her dress or did the birds decorate it
in the style of her shitting on her husband's family?

As the weeks have passed, various news stories have pointed out that Meghan played fast and loose with the truth. While I don't think she plotted to bring down Harry's family by marrying him and somehow forcing him to obey her, her "insider" stories about the royal family weren't necessary.


Meghan claimed her passport was taken away, yet she traveled outside of England.

She said she and Harry got married in their backyard three days before their public wedding, but The Archbishop of Canterbury said it ain't so.

Kate made her cry over bridesmaids' dresses; the journalist who reported that Kate cried stands by her story.

Meghan alleged her press office didn't stand up for her, but they made official complaints about coverage of Meghan twice.

Someone in the family pondered what color their baby's skin would be, but she wouldn't say who it was, and she and Harry recollected it occurring at different times.


I could go on about the points she made that aren't true, or can't be proven, but you probably already know or you get the idea. I thought their goal in giving the interview was to gain publicity for their Netflix deal (cuz after all they need to make some money), but if that was the idea, then they didn't need to make accusations. They could have shown Oprah their chickens and talked about their new lives and everything might have been cool with the fam.

Instead, they're a couple of spoiled brats. After all, Harry inherited a pretty penny from his mum. Meghan also had money from her acting career. 


Why alienate people?


They can always make a few bucks with some dolls.

I certainly don't think their financial situation will come to this:


Those crazy kids should be just fine. After all, Meghan said Harry is adjusting to life in America!


And they can use their influence with Netflix to keep The Crown going for years so Meghan can play herself!


Infinities of love,

Janie Junebug

  1. I don't think anyone could have ever been prepared to be married into royalty, but I also don't think it's any of our business. Every family has it's issues, skeletons, and dynamics. Theirs just happens to be front page news, and when it isn't, the media will make it up.

    I will hold all my sympathy for my Husband and my never ending to do list. :)

    1. My current sympathies lie with Franklin and Penelope because we had a thunderstorm this afternoon.

  2. I am sure that there is some truth in their story. I am not sure what it is.
    For a couple who said that they wanted privacy, and to avoid media coverage they went out of their way to wash the dirty linen very publically - and left the people they condemned no way to reply. Which they knew.

    1. Harry will probably spend the rest of his life feeling embarrassed every time he sees his relatives.

    2. PS. The lie about the early wedding seems so pointless to me. What was it supposed to achieve?

      Delete
    3. Exactly! I immediately knew it was a lie; I'm familiar with C of E protocol re marriage. It was easily disproved and made everyone feel like chumps because they thought they were watching a wedding.

    4. All of the lies are pointless. Meghan said she needed help (mental health care) and wasn't allowed to get it, but Harry has been quite open about needing help and receiving it. Why would Meghan be singled out?

  3. Oh my, I REALLY needed this laugh today, thank you! That dress with the bird poop was the first to start me off and then, it just went on from there! I will be giggling all day tomorrow thinking of them all sitting on those stacks of dollars!

  5. I am always amazed at those who need privacy and serenity, yet go out of their way to make sure they don't have it.

  7. I never cared for her right from the beginning. For some reason, Harry reminds me of my brother who was easily manipulated and has married 3 times. Each woman pretended to need to be “saved” so he could come to their emotional rescue but they were all very strong, very manipulative and emotionally abusive as well as mentally. They were always right and they tried their best to keep him away from his family. The last one was the worst playing on my brother’s issues. She was successful in a break between him and my mom and me. They claimed I was abusive to my mom and I was an alcoholic....my mom cried every day. I think Harry is probably a nice guy but easily manipulated which does not mean he should be given a get out of brat free card. When I saw her on their wedding day, she reminded me of the cat that ate the canary.

    1. I'm so sorry about the sadness your mother experienced. That's awful.

  8. I understand their wish to not be tied to the Royal rules and restraints, but choices have consequences and they seem to conveniently forget that part. They seem to want it both ways - live a "normal" life, but with the perks of Royal life. I think neither of them is very mature yet.

    1. Harry is 36; Meghan is 39. It's time to grow up.

  9. Them and the whole family are obsolete. When the Queen is gone I say just dissemble the whole damn thing. I love watching all the pomp and Circumstance at royal events, but what really is the purpose?

    1. They cost the taxpayers a lot of money. Maybe they need a vote to decide if they want to keep them on.

  10. I don't see a way for the family to truly reconcile; how can they have honest discussions if they need to fear Harry or Meghan will run to the press?

    1. Of course! Even if they do speak honestly, then the fear has to be that Meghan will twist their words.

  11. Interesting! I haven't followed much about them. Am even behind on The Crown--LOL! Only so much interest there for me. But for a couple who wanted privacy they have sure gone public. I also wonder about tearing anyone away from their family--no matter how crappy that family may be. Sometimes it can be a good thing and sometimes not. Time will tell.

    1. That family comes with a lot of baggage.

    2. But she knew that going in. Especially after Diana.
      Maybe that's why Harry wanted to leave, though, also. At least he stands by his woman, I'll give him that! :)

  13. Meghan looked like she was sitting under a seagull flight path! Hahaha!

    They're both spoiled and entitled, and I think they've made their beds and should shut up and get on with lying in them.

    1. I wonder if Harry already regrets leaving the family.

  14. It's very hard to know what's true. It's very sad that a family has been torn apart but it's not the first. Just one of the most visible. And you do wonder when they say they want privacy but go on Oprah.

  15. The interview showed bad judgment on so many levels, including Oprah's, as stated in the comments above. The Queen's husband was not well, so show some respect for that and don't add to her problems. Additionally, I lived in London for a couple of years when I was young and found the British not open to welcoming foregneirs of any kind.

    1. They behaved themselves at Prince Philip's funeral. It's probably a good thing Meghan couldn't go because of her pregnancy.

  16. Love the memes, Janie! 😅 And, I agree with your assessment all the way.

  17. Never liked Meghan she comes across as a snobbish lying bitch

  18. I thought I was the only one.. but I am with you.
    Kate was dealt a similar hand and went through scrutiny as well but she followed all the rules. She wore the approved clothes and made changes to her ways and adjusted.
    Meghan didn't want to adjust.. she wanted a 1000 year old monarchy to change.. people famous for being set in their old ways.
    We all have in laws that suck, we all have those people in our family who make crazy semi racist comments.. and none of us get any of the perks of being royal. She wanted her cake and eat it too..

    1. And so unnecessary. They can do positive things and gain plenty of publicity.

  20. I have loads of sympathy for all sorts of people. But marrying into the British Royal family is a JOB and there isn't a person on earth who doesn't understand it. They are privileged servants: privileged (obvious) and servants (also obvious) and frankly, you couldn't pay me enough to take such a job. Thus, it is harder for me to feel as much sympathy here, though I'm not entirely devoid of it. Harry didn't choose the job, but he chose a wife who would get him out of it.

    1. You're right, Mirka. I wonder if Harry's choice was subconscious.

  21. Loved the memes.
    I thought they sounded whiny from the beginning.I'm not a big believer in trashing your family to the entire world. Everyone has family issues of one sort or another. It just seems too much like poor me, give me some attention.

  22. I lovingly disagree. I love the couple, and you.
    Queen Elizabeth is quite admirable too, but I don't see her as a victim in this scenario. Phillip, though - philandering prick.

    Love.

    1. Philip was, indeed, a philandering prick. His "gaffes" were oft-reported, but tended to be worse than mere breaches of etiquette.
