    I have yet to meet an American in real life who gives a hoot what they do, or who is actually critical of Meghan.

    I really believe people just hope H&M are happy. Americans, while they enjoy a bit of royal-watching, generally seem supportive of them breaking away from a tradition we can barely imagine in the first place. (This, of course, is in real life. Obviously, there is a handful who like to hammer them anonymously online.)

    Obviously he is distancing himself there from the scandal of Uncle Andrew. He should've stopped after the first sentence.

    I've just read it all and I think he has spoken the truth.
    What a shame he fell for the prank though.
    What a shame people gets kicks out of pulling stunts like that.
    Last time someone pulled a royal related prank call, the nurse who got pranked killed herself.

    My head is spinning now. We Americans generally muck something up when meeting royals, I think. The press may make note of it, but a I think we’re just like, “Oops,” and forget about it.

    <modsnip> My point was Harry should have never taken this call unless it was screened. Everything has been going zig zag for them from day one. They need to hire adequate ppl to look out for them, otherwise these episodes will keep happening and NO the media is not to be soley blamed. H and M need to look at their actions as well.

    Hopefully he's not being blackmailed for anything he said on the call that hasn't been released yet.

    When I saw the headline I have to admit I thought it was going to be much worse than what he actually said he didn't burn any major bridges, we all knew there was no love lost between H&M and Trump.

    I haven't listened to the audio but I think if you've lead a life where you expect these types of calls it would be easy to be hoodwinked. But I do think its a bit odd that he would have this type of conversation with who he thought was a 17 year old

    I actually can't believe hes still going on about climate change and people needing to change their habits and this week his wife flew a make up artist over from New York to London.

    I don't think theres any reason that Harry should feel a need to account for Andrew's actions. I have to admit I was expecting the DM to write a long article (akin to her loving avocados who's profits are used for terrorism) about the fact Meghan wore Topshop this week and the allegations against Philip Green etc.

    I think Harry is very naive about normality, he thinks being in the military gave him some normality and maybe somewhat more than usual but he wasn't living solely on his military income. In no way can Harry relate to most of us who have had to worry about a bill or affording something. He has a staff and I'm sure had one while in the military who could get him anything he wanted or put him in touch with anyone he wanted. He also wants to be "normal" while is still at pains to keep his titles

    Just think, the staff at Buckingham Palace dealt with this for decades:

    He's not the first royal nor will he likely be the last.

    Quite a few years ago, the Countess of Wessex and her business partner spoke way too freely with a reported posing as a Sheikh's assistant:
    Word by word, Sophie digs herself deeper into trouble

    The Duchess of York, was recorded offering a reporter access to Prince Andrew for cash:
    Sarah Ferguson offered access to Prince Andrew for cash, says tabloid

    The Duchess of York also took financial assistance from Jeffrey Epstein:
    How Sarah Ferguson's money troubles made Prince Andrew's Jeffrey Epstein problem worse

    Prince Andrew's BBC interview and his association with Jeffrey Epsteinand Ghislane Maxwell attending functions with the royal family and those allegations of sex with a minor might keep the palace PR department busy as well.

    I would think it would be harder to fool someone in person than over the phone but I do understand that you have a certain amount of tenacity when it comes to PH & MM.

    I do believe that you are mistaken about all of those I mentioned not being current news because rumours of Prince Andrew having hired a fabulous lawyer to protect him from his rather sticky situation was in my news feed today. Can you get more current than that?
