Hurt British royals try to find exit route for Harry and Meghan

Recommended Posts

To a non Brit this is all a bit of a mystery to me.

 

Good Luck to them if they want to quit their job and go do something different.

 

Both are wealthy in their own right, so I can't imagine losing income from the British treasury is going to cramp their lifestyle much.

 

Payback the money it cost to refurbish Frogmore Cottage, and btw you Brits must have a very different definition of 'cottage' than that which we in the colonies have!

That won't make much of a dent in their overall wealth, and they are free to just live their lives.

 

I see them basically living a life similar to the Clooneys. Celebs Yes, but with some degree of privacy allowed to pursue their charitable works but without the constant hounding of the British tabloids

Clooneys are not real celebrities. They appear in the media because they have a huge PR campaign behind them. If they stopped paying for that they would vanish from the public eye.

Labour MP Clive Lewis has called for a referendum on the Royal Family, gotta be another great vote winner for Labour.

You are right Vogie, unlikely to be popular. But then again Clive Lewis is just another c#ntinuity Corbyn candidate. He and long Bailey can't disappear soon enough for me.

I appreciate your general sentiments, and if we are going to have any royals (For important jobs like opening supermarkets etc) then I would rather the Dutch or Norwegian style. 

 

The "personal properties" were grabbed once from the poor" remark is heartwarming, Tony Benn said exactly the same in his uplifting "How the rich got rich" speech in HoC. Sadly it is totally out of date, and on a little reflection rather silly (Still very noble though). Most of today's rich achieved their wealth through business and/or trade. Then there are the musicians like Paul MacCartney, Michael Jackson, etc, the great actors, and the great writers. No one is going to persuade me that J K Rowling became a billionaire by stealing from the poor. She wrote books that people wanted to buy, simple as that. She has given 10s of millions of £s to MS research. Bill Gates wrote some key programs that changed the computer world, and has given away Billions. 

 

Just not as simple as we would like to see it. The Royal family though, wealth apart, are a cornerstone of the British institution of privilege, best to put them out to grass, half of them look like horses anyway.

 

How true. 

The UK royals look alike those of Madame Tussaud's. Stiff upperlip and broomstick in the back, like zombies.

Britain...err England has become such an toxic place for foreigners to live that even members of the Royal family have to exit the wasteland. 

 

And now, obviously the 'patriotic' Englanders are extremely offended by "Why an Earth, someone so entitled could and would want to leave the best possible place in the World?!"

 

For me, a young couple made a hard decision that their lives, in a long run, would be better of being outside of the UK. 

Let them have their own lives. They are not royals as there is not such a thing as royal people. We are all alike, human. 

 

But that chick really skanky and trashed up the family photos.

As has been pointed out, the kind of people who try and ingratiate themselves with British Royals are exactly the kind of people they should be avoiding. Suddenly when Markle becomes "royal" vile people like the Clooneys and Hillary crawl out of the woodwork to ingratiate themselves - or were they friends when she was an afternoon TV actress? They would not have deigned to talk to her then. Using the Vancouver house of a "Russian Billionaire" could well prove to be an unwise decision. To continue with their lifestyle they are likely to accept more house stays, corporate jet/yacht use as "gifts" from people who it might we unwise to accept gifts from or even be associated with. Andrew and Epstein spring to mind as a precedent.

But George comes from bonafide American royalty too. His auntie was 300lb Rosemary Clooney best known for singing the virtues of toilet paper in her waning career days, and his father was a  noted local news anchorman just like the  very famous Ron Burgundy.  Clooney's wife the noted human rights lawyer styled by the top fashion houses, has a lot in common with Markle when it comes to shallow opportunism,  although Amal is educated and well spoken. 

 

Frankly, I couldn't care less about Harry. He can get a cashier's job at Sainsbury's and aim for being employee of the month.

Cottage = rural dwelling with bedrooms directly under the roof.

Fine  remove  all their  monies and leave them to it, empty  all bank accs. She  goes  straight back to acting he  can go back to the army.

Well at least Harry did that and Megan also knows what a real job is!

 

I wished i could say the same about our Dutch King and his wife. She even told us this week that there ain't no real dutch people, they don't exist....the newcomers are as Dutch as the imported ones according to her (she's from Argentina in case you didn't know). I had great respect for her untill she spoke these words.

I don't understand all the animosity, surely these aren't the royals you are angry with.

They ruined the house pricing aystem on the shores of lake Como in Italy.

The locals have been completely shut out of the market because of the unrealistic rise in prices since they bought the Villa there.
