    What is the general reaction to the latest upset with Harry and Meghan?
    I saw a news clip that caught the Queen driving and she did not look happy.
    I saw the movie 'The Queen' and the resemblance was remarkable.

    Now that Downton Abbey is finished,
    I hope it becomes an interesting soap opera.

    Harry has long been a "free spirit" of sorts, and I've had the impression that Meghan also dances to that tune as well.

    It's been said that being of the Royal Family is a lot like being in a fish bowl-- everyone can see you but you're not free to just go out and "do your own thing".

    Personally, from my US perspective, seeing any news about the English royals is about as unimportant as news about the latest goings on in the personal lives of Hollywood celebrities.
    I.e. :rolleyes: “Thaaaat’s nice.”. :rolleyes:
    Anyways! Back to the real world!​

    The Queen drives??? We don't even let our presidents drive. And we sure don't hold them to the same regard as a Queen.
    Well, it's ALL theater.

    My bad, I meant “Eye-rolls”

    There's apparently racism against her and the British press is merciless as well. I don't blame them. But I'm not into soap operas, whether on TV or reality, so I'm only noticing headlines casually.

    That was my thought too. But how normal can you even live your life as an ex-royal? Unofficially, they'll always be royal.

    It already is and usually I detest soaps, but I couldn't miss one these episodes presented on PBS.

    Not on public streets, only on estate. She was very active during WWII.

    I think she was probably not wearing a seatbelt - terrible example for her kids and their wives (like Diana :oops:).

    Don't give a monkeys. Can't stand the royals, BUT these two seem to have been stitched up by the tabloid press, they seem to love Kate and hate Meghan. I hope it's not racism but it makes you wonder.
