    Has anyone seen it?

    Is it worth watching?

    What do people think?

    I'm a republican but find it all very entertaining

    Have not yet found it to be able to watch it

    A lovely distraction from what matters. Thr royals are always useful to the media.

    I haven't.

    That would depend on the content, not on the fact that it was two royals being interviewed.

    I think monarchy, even the nominal variant, needs to die. Granting anyone special attention, powers, or privileges based on nothing but their bloodline is primitive irrationality and tribalism that has no place in the 21st century.

    I have just seen some snippets and main points in the media, and some arguing vociferously for either side (not pleasant), but I doubt it will go well for Harry and Megs, and be seen as revenge for whatever they have endured or think they have endured. Must come in handy being an actress though. :oops:

    I like just reading the catfight's highlights.
    One thing reinforced....
    I've no sorrow at not being one of the royals.

    I do believe that so many women think Harry deserves better.
    Moi...par exemple.:p

    LoL... kidding...
    Btw...I like Harry for what he is...and not for who he is.

    Harry seems to be doing quite well for himself & new family.
    Sometimes this means distancing oneself from part of one's
    pre-existing family.

    I agree but then being an 'outsider' I live in the UK it seems that in the US they have similar except rather than getting priveleges based on bloodline it is based on money. I wonder in recent years how many US president's didn't have at least a million dollars in the bank, and yes Obama did.

    Let's all wait for the match of the year... Harry and Meghan vs. The Royal Family in a mixed tag-team match at the (literal) Royal Rumble.

    I usually don't much care about the idle rich, but I do remember the attacks the British press was launching at Meghan in the early days of the relationship being as ridiculous in their pearl clutching as they were disgusting in their racism.

    You must have watched different media to me, I didn't 'pick up' on that.

    I was exclusively speaking of Harry's status...
    Would Meghan have married Harry, had he been a commoner ? I would.;)

    That was from several years ago and is in alignment with the excerpts and summaries I read about the interview.

    Knowing the media hounding that goes on, what I've read about their interview echoes this from 2016 that was cited above:

    His girlfriend, Meghan Markle, has been subject to a wave of abuse and harassment. Some of this has been very public - the smear on the front page of a national newspaper; the racial undertones of comment pieces; and the outright sexism and racism of social media trolls and web article comments. Some of it has been hidden from the public - the nightly legal battles to keep defamatory stories out of papers; her mother having to struggle past photographers in order to get to her front door; the attempts of reporters and photographers to gain illegal entry to her home and the calls to police that followed; the substantial bribes offered by papers to her ex-boyfriend; the bombardment of nearly every friend, co-worker, and loved one in her life.

    It was a portrait of what happens when an insecure, naive woman marries an insecure, naive man.

    As to racism, Oprah raised the issue many times. In a courtroom setting the opposing attorney would have objected to Oprah asking "leading" questions.


    It is supposed to be broadcast in England tonight (3/8).

    Boss watched it and gave me a summary ... basically it confirms how totally messed up the Royals really are.

    An American interview for an American audience.
    For example Meghan raised the "issue" that her child wouldn't be called a prince and this is due to racism. Which is just not true, her child wasn't a prince due to the status of her husband.
    If enough people further up the inheritance ladder died her child would've been a prince.

    Also I find this "because she is black" thing so American. She looks like she has a tan and black hair.

    Hmm, true.
    The comment about someone asking her what skin colour her baby would be, did make me do a double take though.

    That they won't say who it was takes much away from the claim.
    Except that it apparently wasn't Lizzy or Philip (who everyone and their mother suspected).
