The U.S. news stories all favor Markle, while the British people are mainly siding with the monarchy.  The stories about her entitled behavior are relatively easy to prove, as people who were in contact with her before they left England have spoken out. Still, as a non Brit, I also felt some of what she said was very compelling.

The Queen speaks. Briefly.

The Queen’s words extended an olive branch, indicated that the comments about race may not have been intended as taken, and that people remember things differently. She’s also taking a personal interest in resolving this.

Personally I don't think Meghan ever intended to live her life as a working member of the Royal family.  She has, however, gotten what she wanted, marriage to a Prince, a Title, and the social status that goes with it, the mansions, etc.  I do feel sorry for Prince Harry as he has given up a lot for her, although according to her, she gave up everything for his family. Really she gave up nothing. It appears that every time she "wins", Harry loses.

I think so too. It seems that way.  He was extremely non informative in the interview and didn’t get much air time, but he looked terrible, worn out and sad. She looked like she always does when speaking in public or acting. Composed, calm and confident.  I think overall he wanted a way out from the system he thinks killed Diana, and she gave him one, but he lost his family and country. That is a lot to lose.

Royal family or not, denounced by (or departed from) royal family or not, or just an ordinary couple...

My thinking stands the same... private family matters should not be aired in public... even more so for executives, public figures, royals or ex-royals!

FWIW

I agree. If for nothing else, the grandchildren should have the opportunity to remain part of the extended family as they grow older. Family feuds rarely end well. Public feuds can’t.

I did say she's an actress and can make anything sound believable; but I do have a few comments since the choices didn't cover it.

I believe that there are people in the royal orbit who are racist. That's a no-brainer. However, someone was giving her a hard time, why didn't they go to the Queen? The buck stops with her.

I was sort of mad that she said "someone in the royal family" is a racist but didn't name him or her. What's the point of protecting them? I felt manipulated by that.

I was annoyed by Harry talking about her only has the money his mom left him (I'm sure compared to us regular folks, it would be plenty for us to life on nicely.)  He doesn't want to be a working royal--and that's fine, but he shouldn't be butthurt about being cut off financially.  

I felt like they want to perks of being royal, but want to not go with the rules/protocol that come with it and are offended that they can't have it both ways. That makes me unsupportive of their cause. You don't get something for nothing.

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.
