Shits going down with the Royals

Prince Harry and Meghan to step back from royal family

Duke and Duchess of Sussex say they intend to ‘work to become financially independent’

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are to step back from senior roles in the royal family and work towards financial self-sufficiency after a period marked by open warfare with the media over claimed intrusion and bullying.

It is understood that no other royal was consulted before the decision was announced on Wednesday evening, and Buckingham Palace was disappointed by the news.

Prince Harry and Meghan plan to split their time between the UK and North America, the continent of her birth, as they raise their son, Archie.

“After many months of reflection and internal discussions, we have chosen to make a transition this year in starting to carve out a progressive new role within this institution,” the couple said an official statement released on Wednesday.

Apparently it's a big deal across the pond. I don't know why the Brits care so much what a guy 6th in line to the crown does with his life and his hot wife.

I think he’s always wanted out due to his mother’s accident. 

reports are he’s worth $30mil+. The American wife gives him the perfect out.

amazon or Apple could offer them crazy money for some sort of show.

I like how the umpire gives no fucks and doesn't back down or flinch at all. Umpire was a big ol boy. Now that I watch the video closely it looks like Brett runs up there hot then realizes how much bigger than him that dude is and latches on to whoever is around to hold him back. 

I knew that American chick wasn't going to last under all that "proper Brit" scrutiny. Knowing American broads the way we do you know her entitled ass is running that show and she gave him an ultimatum to move to the US at least half the time or else. You know those Brit bitches like the queen and the other brother's wife hate the shit out of her.

A "royal" from the U.S. wants to spend more time in the U.S.  Somehow that's got Americans talking.

A "royal" raped/molested teenage girls on Epstein's watch, and then Jeffrey goes and "kills himself" (coughbullshitcough), and nobody this side of the pond says a word

My favorite part is how Buckingham Palace had no idea. I'm pretty sure "the Palace is understood to be disappointed" is the British way of saying "The Queen is going to put out a hit on Meghan and then shit on her grave."

I don't follow the royals closely but even at a glance it's obvious that the British press has been brutal to her, and it's gotten even worse since this announcement. Who can blame them for wanting to back out of the limelight? And it's not like they are giving up their titles or anything. They're still going to do stuff for the queen; just not as much. Everyone across the pond needs to take it down a notch.

We fought a war so I wouldn't have to even ignore threads about this kind of shit on my favorite American message boards. That was literally in the Declaration of Independence.

LITERALLY

They’re not backing out of the spotlight.  They’re moving to America to become American Royalty (celebrities).  They’ve already trademarked “Sussex Royals.”

They’re leaving shitty weather, bad food, and judgement from grandma for being celebrities in LA.

I read this is Dennis Farrina’s voice and then caught myself saying out loud to myself in my car, “yeah, don’t go to London.”

Yep. Why take crap from reporters with bad teeth when you can come here and make millions. The "limelight" is just an excuse. And Americans are morons, so naturally women will eat this up. Hallmark channel, oprah, etc.

I find it amusing that we slag the Brits for royal-worship when we engage in idle idol worship with great regularity.  In some cases, the idols have earned some celebrity, but then there are the Kardashians.  Our idol worship actually enriches these unworthies.

At least the royals mostly keep their yaps shut except for matters eleemosynary.  And they usually get some education and do actual public service.

Glass houses n shit.

It would be awesome if they moved to America and just kept quiet. But no, they of course are bringing a “progressive” agenda with them.

My wife is British and she and her mother are pretty, prettayy angry right now about this whole thing. But she's also lived in America for 25 years. So yeah, she's almost certainly going to swear off all things Megan and whatever the prince's name is, and then follow them obsessively and bitch to me about them constantly. I don't get it on either side of the pond (shout out to @Cajun ), but it's definitely a thing.

It was an arranged marriage, so not willingly. We're both strict observers of the Amish faith.

You see any popular Kardashians threads around here? If I'm wrong and they actually exist then I'm glad I never spend time on whatever subforum I've apparently missed so far.

This royal family stuff is dumb and un-American. Kardashian and other celebrity worship is dumb and all too American.

Man, I bet Thanksgivings around the Palace are going to be a bit awkward. You know, real quiet with the only sound be silverware on plates and glasses clinking. Maybe some smacking sounds.

This is living theatre 

These people are actual living representations of their countries. Also, the royal family is the keystone of world wide charity and literally have heavy influence over Trillions of dollars. They are still the culture example for all of western civilization. Also, good parts of countries like Canada, Australia, South Africa and India still have a favorable view of the monarchy.

Not to mention the fact that Harry is the actual bastard black sheep of Diana who's disconnection and family feud with the Royal Family was awesome in many ways.

Cannot wait to score some Sussex Royals gear. Don't get me wrong, but she ain't that hot. Definitely not hot enough to do whatever she wants because she wants to have a "career."

As a rule, Americans worship "New Money" and detest "Old Money"

I wasn't correcting you, just flashing back to my ruined vacation with the wife and in-laws in Key Allegro when Diana took the dirt nap.
