    yup. harry forced them to speak out once, when they were dating, to denounce the racist attacks in the press. but even though those got worse, they never spoke out in her defence again.

    I'm increasingly disgusted by it all - the media, the public posts, the racism, the dicks in govt, the idiots that voted for Brexit. It's like the UK is trying to outdo Trump's America.

    The trolls online everywhere try to make Kate look like a saint, but to me she seems kind of pathetic. She got the prize, but at what cost? I'm on the fence about Meghan, but I don't hate her at all. Most of the attacks on her are for things that Kate has done and no one blinked an eye. Kate's shady side is hidden by her handlers. I remember the "Waity Katie" stories about how she'd drop everything - even her jobs - at the drop of a hat if Wills asked her to travel. If he wasn't Prince William, folks would be telling her ass to get a life. And how she successfully cockblocked all the potential competition with her famous "death stare" in clubs and at parties whenever William's old flames or new ones would approach him. She is not a saint and she's no Diana.

    At what cost?---Well just look at her face and 12-year-old-boy body. It speaks volumes.

    I definitely think she knew the trade-off and participated willingly. She was all ambition, with her mother looking like a huge driving force behind that, since birth probably.

    She got what she was after. But I don't envy her one bit.

    I think Kate and Meghan both set out to get their princes. I really don't see a difference in that regard. They aren't the first nor will they be the last. I don't think either of them realized what their marriages would really be like but then most people don't.

    Those stories about just waiting around for William to call are so pathetic, especially as she's held up as a paragon for British women to admire! Kate devoted all of her 20's to William, never having a job so she could be ready to meet him whenever he wanted. When he dumped her she agreed to be in a charity boat race and when the romance was back on she dropped out of the race with just a week to go leaving everyone else to pick up her slack. They said they pleaded with her to stay in the race but they never heard from her again.

    The funny thing is that until Meghan came along all the vitriol was aimed at Kate, even the fake pregnancy trolls but after Meghan those people are just glad to have a English Rose in the role, they're even fine with her laziness now, at least she's white!

    The royal family are more Hollywood than Meghan! They all seem to like psychics.

    except Meghan got hers at 37, when she’d already established herself professionally, had been married before and had accomplished a lot on her own. I think that makes a hell of a lot of difference.

    ^ Is this from the Tatler article which has been debunked? (Neptunia's quote)

    Nancy Reagan allegedly wouldn't make a move witout her psychic. The main thing is that people in the UK (not anti-royalists obviously) think Kate is an asset to the royal family and will make a good queen. They don't mind paying their taxes for her but they do for some of the others.

    not sure why that makes a difference. they both knew what they wanted and got it...just not sure they realized what it really entailed. seems like both of them have had struggles regardless.

    I doubt the psychic stuff, although I’ve been surprised before by people I never suspected of being into esoteric shit. And Nancy Reagan had the psychic thing in common with hitler, and I’m sure a few other things.

    Right. And people , especially monarchists who skew conservative, would never be motivated by racism

    Yes, she was nothing if not single-minded. For a career I could see that, but this....well, maybe to her it IS a career. But her face and body look granny like - the stress of living under strict protocol. So she gets to go on shopping sprees.

    I remember looking at Doria Ragland's face during the wedding; she knew that her daughter stepped into a viper's nest. And so much of it comes from palace "insiders". What kind of life is that? I also wouldn't put it past one of the royals or their staff to have made a thoughtless remark around Archie or Meghan had they stuck around long enough. Left the royal life? Hell, I'm surprised that they didn't leave skid marks.
