UPDATE 7/28/21: Excitement grows over the announcement of not one, not two, not three, but four little golden books forthcoming from Prince Harry.
UPDATE 7/8/21: As evidenced over the last year or two, this silly pair are significant only in the damage they are capable of doing to decent social norms as symbolized by the Royals. Their lying accusations of racism and psychological torture are just is nothing more than the chic Wokeness of two nasty brats trying to score the big bucks and attendant perks offered only in Hollywood. She’s sociopathic trash, and he’s famous and dumb. That can add up to a lot in La-La Land that wouldn’t fill a thimble among normal people elsewhere.
UPDATE 6/22/21: No surprise these two opportunists registered baby Lilibet Diana in a variety of domain name combinations well before informing Great Granny that she could like it or lump it. For upstart Royals parleying family connections into a King’s Ransom living, even babies are business.
UPDATE 6/19/21: Naming their baby girl Lilibet Diana is a good business decision for a couple of budding, big-time merchandisers. Some have sighed over the sweet sentiments on display while overlooking what would have been the kinder, more balanced gesture of naming the baby after both the new baby’s grandmothers: Daria Diana or Diana Daria. But they didn’t. It is obvious that there is a vast difference in dollars and magazine covers to be had between a “Baby Daria Diana” and a “Baby QE2.” One suspects Grandma Daria isn’t grumbling, considering all the major perks coming her way with her daughter’s savvy choice of malleable groom.
UPDATE 3/28/21: This silly duo have moved beyond being a pair of ridiculous tabloid fools. They are just two more irresponsible liars, contributing to the further poisoning of a seriously fragmented social order. For a third-tier Hollywood type of our era, this sort of malicious mischief has become routine career advancement.
UPDATE 3/7/21: On a blog devoted mostly to politics and the preservation of freedom, why waste time and print on vapid celebrities, particularly those accurately typed by Candace Owens as the “Hollywood-kind?” The reason is crony capitalism, the inherently corrupt, often illegal alliance between the corporate and political worlds to the mutual advantage of both (and distinct disadvantage to a free, competitive market). Both seek power and money without limits, and what is Woke Hollywood but Leftist Big Business buying absolution and cover for their unfettered greed? Like their counterparts in politics, the Hollywood Elite Left promote the empty cliches of their political cronies-global harmony, Green New Deals, shared wealth-as they hop about the world on their carbon-spewing jets to the far-flung opulence of multiple estates hidden behind walls and personal security details while preaching austere global socialism, gun confiscation and the chaotic perils of Open Borders for the rest of us proles. What else explains the special fascination the Duchess of Sussex inspires in tabloid readers and those of us who study the acquisition and uses of power? Behold a total operator (and basically dull personality) getting away with it on the grandest scale.
P.S. Harry The Prince was just the ticket in for this adventuress and has no other real significance to the saga.
UPDATE 8/28/20: Ms. Fish-Without-A-Bicycle Gloria Steinem plumbs new depths of irrelevance in an earthshaking sit-down summit with erstwhile Royal-At-Large/Hollywood Activist/Global Humanitarian Meghan in the garden of the latter’s spanking new $11 million Santa Barbara estate. Funny the VERY upscale settings where these poseurs of Universal Equality position themselves. As Concerned Elite, they’ve earned it. The big takeaway? Harry’s a feminist! And Gloria approves!
UPDATE 2/13/20: The Royal Consumption has begun. Not a pretty sight.
UPDATE 1/14/20: Oh, my. It’s happened. The distress call predicted early on. The world’s two most pampered, cossetted, spoiled, privileged Victims have just played the Victim card (IAVT!) and declared their independence from the Royal Motherlode (who has just weighed in with proper, predictable class). Naturally, they’ve bravely chosen to keep the perk$$$$ of being Royals while eschewing the boring stuff, all the while being the Radical Chic, Trump-hating darlings of All The Right Rich Lefties. We should all be so put upon.
ORIGINAL POST 9/22/19: A Progressive friend recently asked in a troubled tone of voice, “Why do the British dislike Meghan Markle so much?”
For this particular purveyor of the conventional dumb Leftist litany-Global Warming, Green New Deals, Open Borders, Medicare For All, Hate Trump, Hate Trump & Hate Trump-the answer has to be upsetting: basic British common sense. After all, these are the people who gave us Western Civilization, Shakespeare, Churchill, Ealing Studios & Carry-On films; and a nice cup of tea to sort things out.
Hapless Harry, the spare heir, has made the marital choice of a vacuous social climber with radical chic Progressive pretensions. One social commentator ascribes to her the lofty role of revolutionary royal party-crasher on the House of Windsor, the outspoken modern Woman Of Color With Opinions.
More like it, she has recently been prime party to one of those chic lists on which no one with more than a thimble-full of brains and/or class would ever voluntarily appear. In the rather worthless estimation of “The Duchess,” anyone who has an ethnic, unpronounceable name, loves Jane Fonda & Greta Thunberg, hates Donald Trump and all who voted for him, is “cool.”
The rest of us, eschewing those who feel qualified to force their Progressive poison down our collective throat, would “rather not” when it comes to anything pertaining to Little Miss Markle. One eagerly awaits Meg’s Grandma-In-Law to weigh-in on this world-class lightweight but will not be putting aside breathing and eating in the interim. The Queen has always exercised admirable self-restraint, and we would be sensible to do likewise.
