Losing their HRH titles seems a bit HARSH (unless this was their decision, in which case you can pretend this post never happened). Whatever next? Losing their LEGS? Losing their LIVES?
I've been dropping a few red pills lately, telling less informed friends and relatives that Meghan and her husband are leaving the Royal Family because they found out Epstein didn't kill himself. Only a few people have suggested I go to a psychiatrist!
It also wouldn’t surprise me if Meghan’s been saying, “Now listen to me, beardy. About that car crash...”
"Good evening, and thank you for being here for Sentebale, a charity me and Prince Seeiso created back in 2006 to honour my mother's legacy in supporting those affected by HIV and Aids.
"Before I begin, I must say that I can only imagine what you may have heard or perhaps read over the last few weeks...
"So, I want you to hear the truth from me, as much as I can share - not as a prince, or a duke, but as Harry, the same person that many of you have watched grow up over the last 35 years - but with a clearer perspective.
"The UK is my home and a place that I love. That will never change.
"I have grown up feeling support from so many of you, and I watched as you welcomed Meghan with open arms as you saw me find the love and happiness that I had hoped for all my life. Finally, the second son of Diana got hitched, hurray!
"I also know you've come to know me well enough over all these years to trust that the woman I chose as my wife upholds the same values as I do. And she does, and she's the same woman I fell in love with.
"We both do everything we can to fly the flag and carry out our roles for this country with pride.
"Once Meghan and I were married, we were excited, we were hopeful, and we were here to serve.
"For those reasons, it brings me great sadness that it has come to this.
"The decision that I have made for my wife and I to step back is not one I made lightly. It was so many months of talks after so many years of challenges. And I know I haven't always got it right, but as far as this goes, there really was no other option.
"What I want to make clear is we're not walking away, and we certainly aren't walking away from you. Our hope was to continue serving the Queen, the Commonwealth, and my military associations, but without public funding. Unfortunately, that wasn't possible.
"I've accepted this, knowing that it doesn't change who I am or how committed I am.
"But I hope that helps you understand what it had come to, that I would step my family back from all I have ever known, to take a step forward into what I hope can be a more peaceful life.
"I was born into this life, and it is a great honour to serve my country and the Queen.
"When I lost my mum 23 years ago, you took me under your wing.
"You've looked out for me for so long, but the media is a powerful force, and my hope is one day our collective support for each other can be more powerful because this is so much bigger than just us.
"It has been our privilege to serve you, and we will continue to lead a life of service.
"It has also been a privilege to meet so many of you, and to feel your excitement for our son Archie, who saw snow for the first time the other day and thought it was bloody brilliant!
"I will always have the utmost respect for my grandmother, my commander in chief, and I am incredibly grateful to her and the rest of my family for the support they have shown Meghan and I over the last few months.
"I will continue to be the same man who holds his country dear and dedicates his life to supporting the causes, charities and military communities that are so important to me.
"Together, you have given me an education about living. And this role has taught me more about what is right and just than I could have ever imagined.
"We are taking a leap of faith - thank you for giving me the courage to take this next step."
Too close to the truth to be funny...I was imagining something like this.
Harry and Meghan said FUCK THE S*N (plus the express, mirror and STOP FUCKING HATE).
That is AMAZING! The SHADE!
I can't help but feel that these rags will now use this as carte blanche to tear into them even more viciously, but I do think it'd be interesting if more celebrities realised that in the 2020 media landscape they don't ACTUALLY need to engage with the Murdoch press to promote their wares.
I love that they “will not be engaging with your outlet” I hope I get to use that one day
"Will not be engaging with your outlet" is the best "FUCK OFF" I've heard in a good while.
i'm sure said outlets are shaking in their boots
I'd be the first to light the PYRE in which to burn all tabloids FOREVERMORE but these two are RIDICULOUS in their POMP and SELF-RIGHTEOUSNESS.
You are planning on sustaining yourselves in the HOLLYWOOD CELEBRITY CIRCUIT while keeping CHUMS with the Obamas and Elton fucking John, loves. You are ATTENTION WHORES.
Their court case against the Mail On Sunday starts in court on Friday. The opening salvos are being shot.
Time to log off and get some fresh air I think hun
I have a beautiful garden I am typing this from hun. Enjoy your bootlicking!
There doesn't have to be a 'but'. You can think Harry and Meghan are attention whores and still light the pyre.
I'm by no means a particular fan of the monarchy, but if I have to pick a side here, I'll go for pomp and self righteousness every time.
Why are you SHAMING PEOPLE who have no gardens? As bad as Ellen!
I don’t have a garden and I’m going to have to kill myself now thanks to @Peekaboo
personally, i am baffled how someone can like harry/meghan more than peekaboo. garden or not!
I can only like one thing at a time for three minutes.
what if the last 15 seconds of it are silence?
The options must be presented in the form of a rigid dichotomy.
He got personal FIRST!
Gays, if Madonna or another MISGUIDED CELEB was writing that SANCTIMONIOUS essay you'd all be HOWLING at her HYPOCRISY for using the media WHEN IT SUITS HER and then claiming IT'S A LIE when she doesn't like it.
I really don't wish them any ill (my tags are always in BAD TASTE but then like HALF OF YOURS aren't!) but these two are just another RICH CELEBRITY COUPLE trying to hustle their way through the A-list. I honestly think a lot of British people have a different stick to measure the Royal family compared to your average SOCIALITE, that's all I was pointing out.
Have you been self-isolating? You can come STAY IN MY SHED (I have a bed there).
he will not be engaging with your outlet.
