I have just seen this letter from Meghan's half brother. Thomas Markle jnr, obviously knows his sister far better than most, but I don't think most of us would describe your fiancé as 'a jaded, shallow, and conceited woman'.
She has a pleasant smile, and that is quite important; but, is it really enough on which to base a marriage?
Small time actresses are notably self-centred, and you will have to restrain her from becoming the classic 'Pushy Princess'. The Queen Mother warned your mother about this, and as we all know (to her disadvantage) she ignored the advice.
Do try to stop Meghan from appearing in magazines, grabbing the limelight, or becoming a patron of spurious charities; these things turn susceptible heads, and can only hasten ill feeling from 'her adoring public' (if she has one).
If the press ever start describing her as 'The most beautiful woman in the world' (as they so often did with your late mother), then you really will have cause for concern. I don't wish to comment on the 'attractiveness' of either your mother or Ms Markle, but I'm sure you understand how well-intentioned exaggeration can easily have adverse effects.
Many thanks for the invite; don't get too pissed on your Stag Night. I'll be in touch!
Come on Harry, get out of it now. You are making a big, big mistake.ReplyDelete
I hope he's on the pill.Delete
Who knows,they might live a happy and good marriage after all,what do we really know?ReplyDelete
We all hope so, but she's a bit of an unknown quantity. There do seem to be a lot of pessimists about.Delete
She has lived in Toronto for awhile and by all accounts was well liked. They look happy and I guess that's all that matters.ReplyDelete
It's more the longer term that worries people. She may get bored, or overworked, or regret losing her freedom.Delete
More to the point, Harry is going to be the one with regrets.Delete
Not being a Royalist I really have not got a lot to say on the subject but these days folk do seem to get married for some very odd reasons. And stag nights??? In my day you didn't have such things, you were too busy saving up for a dining table so that you didn't have to eat off the floor for the first year. (Yes, I know I am an old grouch).ReplyDelete
The Fergie/Diana era wasn't too good for 'the firm', I just hope this doesn't follow the trend.Delete
I wonder how that letter came into public domain. Maybe the postman delivered it to the wrong address?ReplyDelete
I shouldn't think he actually sent it; probably just gave it to the press.Delete
I was joking.Delete
I did wonder.Delete
Hoping Prince Harry is on the pill is a very clever comment. Too late tonight, but tomorrow I will read the rest of the letter if Google puts it up for me. I would guess he is a younger brother.ReplyDelete
Seriously, he must like her. I would reckon they have a pretty hot time together. Maybe it can relax into a long term relationship and partnership friendship. Give 'em a go and a chance.
I think he might have been wiser to have found a European 'spinster', from a royal or aristocratic family, who knew the ropes. I fear that Markle may come to regret her choice (other than the title she will receive).Delete
Why would anyone be negative about a couple getting married. Marriage is hard enough without the naysayers putting in their two cents. It’s a happy news story of no importance or consequence except to them. I will see their wedding picture, smile, think they look nice, and probably not give it another thought. I do wish every new couple the best.ReplyDelete
You'd be surprised. The UK cheap press has been filled with criticism, and now ever her brother has had a go. Like you, I wish them well, but I do have my doubts.Delete
Here in Norfolk Harry gave up his participation in the Boxing Day shoot at Sandringham, a family tradition. Meghan had been invited to join the family for Christmas, a one-off without precedent. Harry gave up joining the family on the traditional pheasant shoot because Meghan did not want him to go on it. He did not accompany his family walking, maybe without a gun. He stayed away. Some men like to be dominated and maybe he is happy with this. It is nothing to do with "UK cheap press" it is fact. But it isn't to say he doesn't like being dominated, as I say and perhaps he will. His appearance from looking happy-go-lucky and boyish has disappeared and he has lost 2 stone in weight. He was already slim.Delete
I only mentioned about the 'cheap press' because the heavies wouldn't be bothered with such trivialities. Apparently his old girlfriends claim that he is very clingy.Delete
I guess he just wants to be bossed around. The Sandringham shoot was in The Telegraph. He broke a long tradition, or she did.Delete
Well thank goodness she's not one of the neanderthal shooting brigade at least!Delete
Sad words coming from a Norfolk woman, a disappointment to meDelete
Not a Norfolk woman, I'd be ashamed to be having seen the way they behave!Delete
Oh how sad. How is that? That is so awful! You have obviously met the wrong ones up there in North Norfolk!Delete

Her present life is certainly like a cheap 'soap opera', and this is the best role she's likely to be offered. I hope she respects it.Delete
If someone gives you lined paper to write on make sure you turn it sideways.ReplyDelete
Advice to fellow inmates?
It does all look very childish. His spelling could be improved too.Delete
Even though my dad and his family were from London, I know nothing (nothing except what I've read or heard) about the royal family. Having just seen The Crown on Netflix (and wonder how historically accurate that is), I suspect that Queen Elizabeth is the last of the 'old school' royals.ReplyDelete
Certain members do continue to work extremely hard, and keep the tradition going. Heaven help us if it is ever replaced.Delete
I hadn't hear of the letter. Rather interesting and perhaps enlightening. Your pal Harry will welcome your letter too.ReplyDelete
