Prince Harry and Meghan Markle announced they’re taking a “step back” from the royal family

Yeah, that place out 'there'. Anything not really Cambodia related should go here.

Say what you like about the Americans, but they sure have improved the quality of their "poontang"

Harry so hates racism. I'm shocked to see a cigarette in that photo. Appalling!

The rest of the royal family have learned the art and importance of keeping a dignified silence. They know that they will be judged on every single thing they say. Of course, they still get judged, but by keeping their mouths shut, they can only be judged on public perceptions of them and any falsehoods the media will inevitably make about them. Things they have no control over. Very different to being judged on something they actually said or did.

Harry and Meghan don't seem to have gotten that memo. Of course they will inevitably get bad press for upping sticks and leaving not only the UK but the Royal Family, but if they had just stayed quiet about it and not fed the trolls, they may have just gotten away with it.

But they've now got into the habit of opening their mouths, too often, and too loudly. There is nothing whatsoever they can ever say which will change the minds of most of the people who have decided they don't like them. Every time they open their mouths, they are simply shoveling one more spadeful of soil out of the hole and adding it to the ever-growing pile next to it.

I couldn't care less about them to be honest. I find the idea of a royal family absurd, especially in the 21st century and hope that once the Queen passes away, we will gt rid of the bloody lot of them.

I'm sure as normal humans, Harry and Meghan are about as normal and average a couple as they come.
The difference between animals and humans is that animals would never allow the dumb ones to lead the pack.

Prince Andew didn't get that memo either it seems given his bombshell interview re his involvement with Epstein. He's had to step back from his royal duties as a result of that.

Given their decision to leave the royal family, and subsequent treatment from the royal family in essentially 'cutting them off', TBH I'm not at all surprised they are speaking out about this. I see it as part of their business strategy in moving from Royal Family to Hollywood Celebrity status.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex confirmed at the start of the interview that they didn’t receive payment to sit down with Winfrey. Prince Harry, 36, and Markle’s finances came into question throughout the interview, as the redheaded royal revealed they were financially “cut off” by the family following their decision to reduce their roles. The couple has been living off his inheritance from his late mom, Princess Diana, he revealed.

“Without that, we would not be able to do this,” in reference to leaving the monarchy.

Since relocating to Montecito, Calif., the couple has inked a $100 million deal with Netflix and launched their podcast, Archewell Audio, with Spotify. They also reportedly are earning $1 million per speech they make after hiring a top agency, so paying the bills isn’t a concern since being cut off from the royal coffers.

U.K. radio presenter Julia Hartley-Brewer said in one post: "When you choose to reveal the sex of your unborn baby in a TV interview in return for millions of pounds, then you pretty much give up any pretense that you want to protect your privacy. They will have known for weeks but chose to sell that intimate details." Hartley-Brewer later clarified her comments, tweeting: "that interview was their way of proving their box office appeal to Netflix, Spotify and anyone else who'll hire them just for their names and titles. That interview will have a huge payday."

This guy nails it, especially on Meghan's denial that marrying into the royal family was a career move,
