    My point is that they've said they want to be on their own and be free to do their own thing. If that is truly the case, then they should want to change their brand to something that doesn't instantly associate them with an institution that they don't want to be a part of. Again, it seems they want to be able to have their cake and eat it too.

    Why is this a conflict? Shouldn't all of the RRs be traveling with William and Kate? Why cover the ones that don't matter?

    Yeah, I think this is a non-issue. He works for ITV so they can send another reporter.

    There's nothing wrong with it if you're going to be a Queen some day.

    I feel like others - the synchronisation of this Sussex exit + the Prince Andrew scandal has really put into perspective for us commoners where Liz and her family's loyalties lay. Poor decisions, complete lack of perspective and out of touch with her royal subjects. She may be "the head" of 31 countries, but she has no idea how people in those countries think. Being from Canada, the monarchy is symbolic at best. And I think most people here support H&M and the quest for privacy, and despise rich, white, entitled assholes who are giddy to take part in sex/human trafficking and raping minors. But, you know, I could be wrong. The fact that Andrew keeps his titles and money - and has started dabbling in public life again - while Harry had to drop his title and all royal suggestions in a "negotiation" on what he could and couldn't have when trying to protect his family speaks for itself. Harry is a f*cking born heir to the British throne and everyone in the world knows it. He can't say "Royal" anywhere - really stick it to them, Liz! It's pathetic and petty.

    The Guardian had a piece a few weeks ago about Andrew being rehabilitated by the royal reporters. He's poised to re-enter public life so there is no need for him to give up his military honors or his security.

    Yup. Great article. I’ll copy it here


    What explains Prince Andrew’s rehabilitation and Harry’s vilification? MisogynyArwa Mahdawi


    Both royals have been forced to quit their roles, yet the Duke of York is being rehabilitated by the press while the Sussexes are being hounded


    Published: 09:05 Tuesday, 21 January 2020

    Follow Arwa Mahdawi






    Prince Andrew – His Royal Highness the Duke of York – is a man of many titles, but seemingly few talents. He does, however, have one superpower: scandal doesn’t stick to him. Having spent several weeks keeping a low profile following the whole being chummy-with-a-sex-offender thing, it looks as though Andrew has crawled out of the woodwork and is being rapidly rehabilitated.
    On Sunday, the Queen appeared in public with her 59-year-old son for the first time since his car-crash Newsnight interview in November. Photographs of the two going to church show Her Majesty looking pleased and the prince looking pleased with himself. The man claims he has had trouble sweating, but by God can he smirk.
    He certainly has a lot to smirk about: the coverage of his outing with Mum was a PR coup. “Disgraced Prince Andrew has become the Queen’s ‘rock’ during Megxit, royal insiders have revealed,” bellowed the Sun. According to these “insiders”, Andrew has been a “tower of strength” recently, “supporting his parents in their hour of need”.


    Talk about a tale of two princes. While Andrew is described as a rock (he has the charisma of one), Harry is torn apart by the redtops, painted as an entitled brat who has abandoned queen and country to jet off and start a new life. Andrew has kept his titles and stipend from the Queen since the Epstein scandal, when he was made to step back from his public duties for the “foreseeable future”. On the other hand, Harry and Meghan have been forced to make a clean break from the firm and relinquish their Royal Highness titles and taxpayer funding. The Sussexes will also pay back 2.4m in public money spent renovating their home; Andrew has made no statements about his debts to the taxpayer.
    The parallels between the princes are fascinating and infuriating. They were born into the same job: “spare” heir. Andrew is eighth in line to the throne, while Harry is sixth, so neither has much hope of becoming king; constitutionally speaking, it doesn’t much matter if they step away from their roles. They have been forced – in very different circumstances – to resign from their “jobs”. Yet their resignations have been treated wildly differently by the media. Harry and Meghan’s decision to relocate has been treated as a far bigger story than the fact that the Queen’s son was friends with Jeffrey Epstein, a child sex offender, and has been accused of having sex with a teenage girl who claims she was trafficked by Epstein, an allegation Andrew denies.
    Why the discrepancy? Most obviously, there is racism towards Meghan. Then, as Alan Rusbridger pointed out in the Observer, there is the fact that the “major newspaper groups most obsessed with Harry and Meghan are … being sued by the couple for assorted breaches of privacy and copyright”.
    Another reason is old-fashioned misogyny. The accusations levelled against Andrew aren’t reputation-ruining, because society doesn’t care what powerful men do to vulnerable women. Look at the president of the US, for God’s sake.
    In many ways, the narratives around Andrew and Harry represent age-old archetypes. Andrew is the prodigal son; Harry is a hen-pecked husband. After decades of dissolute living, Andrew is proclaiming how sorry he is; inevitably, he will be forgiven. But the one thing society won’t forgive, as Harry is finding out, is a man putting a woman’s needs first.

    The Duke of Sussex today embarked on his final round of engagements as a senior working royal as he launched a new eco-friendly travel firm in Edinburgh - and asked delegates 'just to call him Harry'. Prince Harry, who will step down as a senior royal in less than five weeks, is in the Scottish capital for a 'working summit' of the Travalyst partnership, which will feature a grading system for users to track their carbon emissions. Before he took to the stage today, host Ayesha Hazarika told delegates: 'He's made it clear that we are all just to call him Harry. So ladies and gentlemen, please give a big, warm, Scottish welcome to Harry.' Harry, 35, who jetted into the UK from his new home in Canada, will return to London later today before visiting the Abbey Road Studios on Friday to record a new song for his Invictus Games with rock star Jon Bon Jovi.

    He looks so happy. I saw Meghans parasite dad once again in the Daily Mail crying that he's mad at her and Harry for the way they speak to the Queen. I go on that website just to see how stupid their articles are but I always leave angry.

    Why are reporters still chasing this man? He hasn't spoken to his daughter in 2 years. He has nothing to add to any story about her or her husband.
