There probably are some who don’t care for her and skin color is a way to cause her pain, I get that. But by not saying everyone is assuming it’s Philip who is old and may not understand the hurt caused by comments about skin color. Then again, he is ill now and a convenient scapegoat. It is unfair to him if he did not say it.  Harry is obviously covering for a family member, if it indeed happened, and there are only so many. The should have gone to the Queen, so either they didn’t  trust her to handle it or maybe it did not happen as shockingly as they said it did. She would find out the truth, and will. 
 

Harry has around $18 million from the inheritance Diana left plus investments on that money and Meghan earned around $9 million from Suits.  No one knows how much is left but probably a lot.  Did he just assume he could basically quit his job and still get paid? Apparently so.

The spent $10 million on their house, which seems extravagant given they aren’t working for pay.

Was Piers Morgan right or wrong when he said he doesn’t believe a word she says? It would mean she had to lie about the racial comments and the altercation with Kate.  Apparently people side with him because he has been offered other jobs.

He knows Meghan personally, possibly better than the people who are angry with him. Could he be right?

I joked to my mother that it's probably Andrew because of the people he associated with. But I'm sure many are assuming it's Phillip, which if not true is unfair to him. A lot of people are assuming it's the whole family.

Every time I see them I get the feeling what they say is not the whole truth, Some of it may have a kernel of truth, but I'm highly skeptical of a lot of what they say. If you want to do an interview to set the record straight, why pussyfoot around what you want to say? Are they waiting to do part 2 and make more alligations stay relevant?

I get their beef with the tabloids, but that's about it.

I don’t understand every nuance of the monarchy but it seems much of their reticence comes from the desire of their people to have respect for them and their charity work. That can’t happen if all their private interactions and squabbles are aired in public.  Every family has disagreements.  In the U.S., we are used to that but in their realm, it doesn’t happen as much.  I wish we had a little more respect for privacy.

As we discussed over PM, I think she came across highly naive when she claimed she had no idea how bad it would be with the British Press and the public duties of the Royals, that's absurd and Piers Morgan was right to question her on the validity of that, but it's not really for us to say how she felt in terms of her mental health, one almost wishes Diana were still alive to hear her comments on how her mental health was affected at the time.

Didn’t anyone tell her what she was marrying into?  No one from England?  We can’t possibly understand from here, but surely Harry knew.  He had already had a bad breakup when a previous girlfriend told him she could not tolerate being part of the royal family.  He had to know hiding it from Meghan would end badly. We tend to think she orchestrated all this, but what if he did?  If so, why did he look and sound so unsettled in the interview?  

I fully believe her mental health issues.  She probably was stressed to the extreme, couldn’t trust anyone and was not sleeping, which she mentioned in the interview. Harry may have spoken about his mother’s mental health bu he was very young when Diana died, so anything he remembers now is more anecdotal.

This is the possible motivation for the interview. Money and a huge Netflix deal.  When they said they watched some of The Crown, that wasn’t an idle question from Oprah. It may have been the crux of the whole interview.

They do seem highly preoccupied with making a lot of money, that much is clear.

They have all those high expenses. 24/7 security which they mentioned a lot in the interview.  A $10 million mansion. No visible means of support anymore, except the vague Netflix project and speaking fees.   I bet you wouldn’t mind a cushy Netflix deal for your films.

I didn’t mention why I asked you about the interview, in case anyone was curious but too polite to ask. It was because you have more knowledge of the Royals than I do, which I mentioned in the PM.
