Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex

I read a quote that a journalist said he couldn't understand why Prince Harry was taking legal action against the newspapers.

What a dick head! If my mum had been killed by apparent massive attention from newspaper reporters, even if that link is tenuous, then I too would do everything in my power to curb the reporters excesses....

We all understand this, the reporters understand this, but they are not manning up and admitting responsibility, however tenuous.

Even worse they are trying to manipulate it into a new story!

Re: Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex

Not too long ago I watched a documentary on the Princess Di conspiracy. Very interesting but then my first inclination is to believe them (conspiracies) when I hear them.

Camelot is over, JFK was the last to enjoy those types privileges the press would afford. Scandal sells, if you have indiscretions the media will report first, then verify. This is the new reality.

Re: Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex

I see the gold digging half caste, z rated Yank actress is also suing the papers. I reckon she's trying to get as much out of her tenuous link with the Royal Family as she can before she divorces Harry and gets the massive payoff.

Seems to run in the family, considering Prince Charles refused to take a paternity test...and Prince Harry resembles Diís riding instructor more than he does his ďfatherĒ...

I'd have to ask.

Why is it not the same for William and Kate?

If your from the UK it's permissible to use blatantly offensives term regarding people of color, yet I constantly get questioned in regards to Political affiliations. "Try substituting left for right" LOL...BULLSHIT you try it.

Re: Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex

Ah, Col, again with the bigotry. I know that by now I should expect it from you and should realize that kindness isn't among the words in your dictionary. But being human, I have this silly little thing called "hope" - a four-letter word of such magnanimity, such promise - and such disappointment, too.

Re: Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex

The definition of a bigot is a person who is intolerant to those people holding different opinions.

I said that the half caste Yankee goldigger is trying to screw as much money out of the system. Is that being a bigot?
Jesus, if someone doesn't like someone else for whatever reason, is that being a bigot? Plenty of people don't like me, who cares? That's life, I don't give a tinkers cuss, people can think what they like.

Bigot is a word over used these days. It virtually means nothing, except to over sensitive yanks.
A more interesting word to discuss is hypocritical, especially from an American angle.

Re: Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex

Your definition is incorrect in that for you it does not include racist remarks. However, in common usage in the USA, bigotry includes racist viewpoints.

I will overlook "gold digger" but "half-caste" is racist and at least in my book is included under bigotry. And let's be clear: She is not responsible for her parents' choices. Whether she is 1/2 or 1/4 or 1/1024th of anything wasn't her choice. To call her down for her parents actions is low-class.

But then, the USA tries (and, admittedly, too often fails) to remove such stigmata. Is it hypocritical to aspire to something better than you are?

Re: Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex

I asked Siri on my iPhone the exact definition of bigot, that's what she said - no mention of racism.
I guess the UK definition and the USA definition are different, so chastising me is somewhat harsh because I hail from the UK - in fact you could say it smacks of racism or even bigotry.

I also share the same name & country of origin as you but little else.
Your comments are both racist and bigotry as well you know.

Re: Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex

You also share the same county, I was grew up in Somerset. North Somerset, Frome, Winford, Chew Magna and Blagdon.

If one reads the papers, having a pop at Rachel (or Meghan) whatever her name is, is almost a national pastime. Even the Duchess Kate doesn't like her.

Re: Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex

"Golddigger" is entirely unjustified. Meghan was a successful, independent businesswoman and acquired her own fortune long before meeting the 'royals'. She doesn't need nor want 'their' money. I admire this couple for their courage to defy social bias and build a loving, caring life together.

Colin's remarks are intended to be at very least, derogatory, demeaning, disrespectful. Such racist and women bashing remarks serve only to spread hate and violence.

Re: Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex

I grew up in London but lived on the edge of the Mendips in Churchill (a few miles from Winford/Blagdon) until earlier this year. Now living in Exmoor.

I agree that after an early 'honeymoon' period parts of the press have decided Meghan is someone they can criticise/attack. That doesn't mean it is OK for such attacks to be racist in nature.
