Don't bother reading the Daily Mail. Every article is about Meghan, her dad, her mother, her childhood friends, her neighbors, her favorite shampoo, etc.

That's why someone like Trump was elected. Some people just don't get it. Thanks for hitting on that point.


Oh please. How did all of those 'good working relationships' work while ISIS was on the march for the past 8 years? How about all of those 'good working relationships' while fat boy Kim Jung Un, and his father before him, have been working on nuclear weapons programs?


I think it's time to try something different.

DM tends to do that. They go overboard on the Kardashians, too. They frequently call Kim ridiculous labels like "the siren." I wonder how much certain people pay DM for such coverage.

Well the Daily Fail would, wouldn't they?

Are you suggesting the UK hasn't been involved in the fight against ISIS or that they haven't been involved in Afghanistan? Seriously?

Fat boy Kim Jung Un is currently being poked by Trump. What say you? Are you really suggesting the UK has no involvement with NK either?

That or he lives off his wife at the beach.


One, Prince Henry is *loaded* after splitting 50/50 the estate of late Diana, Princess of Wales with his brother Prince William, Duke of Cambridge. Each got more than 33 million British Pounds at turning 30 years of age IIRC, and likely those sums have grown thanks to investments.


Two, Prince Henry actually had a pretty successful military career which could translate into any number of private sector employment opportunities : https://www.royal.uk/prince-harrys-military-career


However employment choices have been limited since PH left the military for a host of reasons. Much of it having to do with managing a private sector job along with his duties as a royal prince; it just creates too many scheduling and other obstacles. https://www.standard.co.uk/news/uk/p...-a3242716.html


What Prince Henry does seem keen upon and is rather good at doing is the work his late mother took up; charitable works and promoting things that better the lives of those less fortunate than himself. In that respect the prince shares something in common with many wealthy and or successful millennials such as Mark Zuckerberg. Social causes and philanthropy are very big in that circle and can see PH either starting a foundation and or going to work for one.


Finally if anyone will be living off anyone else in this marriage it will be the Markel woman. She only brings with her about five million USD which pales in comparison to Prince Henry's current wealth. Keep in mind there will likely be other large sums coming PH's way (inheritances and or gifts) in future from both his grandmother and father for a start.


Keep in mind both Prince William and Prince Henry split also Diana's jewels as part of their inheritance so again neither is exactly in danger of being poor. https://www.gobankingrates.com/net-w...versary-death/

Given the bolded, is it fair to say you would have preferred a different choice?

You only confirm what I said. He's living off the taxpayers and inheritances that came from the taxpayers.

But that is the Brits problems. The vast majority of the USA isn't caught up in this nonsense nor do they care if the royals don't like Trump. That is their, and their country's problem too.

But hey, as consolation prize, they apparently get Obama & Mooch to come over to kiss his ass.

Obama will go over there and apologize for something and be the big wimp he always is.

That is a purposely obtuse and simplistic statement which is not entirely true.
