With nothing factual to base it on, my supposition is that Meghan was simply unprepared for what life as a royal requires in terms of protocol.

Maybe!  I just thought she was a evil bitch.

Divorced her first husband for no reason.
Made Harry give up his guns.
Her own family detests her.
Decides to raise her kids "gender neutral."
Pro abortion activist.

I used to think Harry was kind of cool guy, but he sure screwed himself over for a pretty face with a vile soul.

I didn't know she made Harry give up his guns, nor did I know about the gender-neutral stuff. Yeah, she has some issues.

Although, to be honest, since Brits in general can't have guns I think it's only fair that the royals shouldn't have them, either. But that's a different topic, for a different day.

When I first heard Meghan Markle's name, I thought, "Who the hell is that? Never heard of her." When I saw her picture . . . I STILL didn't recognize her.

And such is my interest, to this day I STILL can't name what shows or movies she appeared in - at least, not without resorting to google.

If she made Harry give up his guns - I think less of Harry. And if she wants her kids to be gender-neutral - she's mentally ill.
Trump won in 2016. Democrats haven't been so offended since Republicans came along and freed their slaves.

I don't think anyone claimed she was a movie star. I think she was mostly known for Hallmark TV movies. In a way, that makes her look better. Harry apparently liked her for her; not fame or money.

Unfortunately, she seems to have the character defects we expect from movie stars...

I try to avoid being overly political in obit threads, but I gotta post this:

https://twitchy.com/amy-313134/2022/09/10/donald-trump-pays-tribute-to-queen-elizabeth-ll-in-daily-mail-exclusive/

Wow. I am impressed. I was really afraid that Trump was gonna go the junior high route from either not being invited to the funeral or from what some third party said. Even if it was one of his people, rather than him who wrote (or edited) it, he took the high road here. Good on him.

DJT's poignant, eloquent statement certainly upstaged everything - everything! - coming from the vapid nebbish currently infesting the White House. The comments at the Daily Mail Online were overwhelmingly quite complimentary to DJT as well.

Probably an improvement.

With those huge noses and ears, they should fit right in.

I only watched about a minute.  I think the point they were making was that even Hitler respected Her Majesty, Liz II, and was touched by her passing.  It was not in very good taste but it tried to be.

Especially considering that she was alive at the time of Hitler's attacks on Great Britain.

It has been many many years ago since I read this bit of history and I might be getting it wrong.  But I thought I had read some material about Germany's plans to invade Great Britain, and the High Command had a debate as to if they should execute all the Royals so they could not be a rally point for resistance, or to keep the Royals as a figurehead monarchy to pacify the populace.

Much speculation they would have put the former King Edward VIII back in as a puppet.
How deep his Nazi sympathies really went is highly debated with much of it going one way then the other.

Ironically it was his abdication that put Elizabeth in direct line to the throne.

Flightradar24 is jammed up.
Based on some YT videos that have popped up in my feed showing tracking of the flight of the Queen's coffin from Edinburgh to London I would say it may be due to people tracking the flight

It will be opened back up PDQ, ADS-B shows that particular flight pretty close t London. I have never understood why some flights get such a following.
