Today I am taking a look at a topic that everyone and their dog has an opinion on – the question as to whether Harry and Meghan should travel to the UK to participate in the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee Celebrations?

It is not yet known whether or not Meghan, Harry, Archie and Lili will make the trip over from California to attend all or some of the Jubilee Celebrations.  Whilst rumour has it that the Queen would like them to come, whe...

During the week of the Invictus Games at the Hague in Holland - Prince Harry did a fair few press interviews to promote the Games. In these interviews Harry,  for the most part,  kept the topic limited the Games and only answering the odd question about fatherhood and his children.  Not so when he sat down with NBC’s Hoda Kotb. This interview did explore Harry's private life. 

This podcast is an overview of their interview, the...

As I mentioned before we don’t have live TV coverage of the Invictus Games The Hague here in Canada, but I have been trolling all over social media and news reports so as to keep up to date on how the Games are going.

Amongst the many hard-hitting stories of the competition,  such as the fact that the Ukrainian team who despite the on-going war with Russia did manage to travel to Holland to take part, and also the serious part of th...

On the Thursday evening before Good Friday many of us were knocking off work early so as to extend our Easter weekend as much as possible. As is my norm,  I was keeping one eye on the Twitter feeds about all things Meghan and Harry when a story popped up on the My Royalty Account  https://mobile.twitter.com/BurnerRoyalty a post by The UK Sun newspaper reporting that Meghan and Harry had been to visit with the Queen.

At a time when we are constantly bombarded with hateful and polarized media and social media commentary and when it is becoming increasingly difficulty to sort out the real news from the fake, Meghan and Harry have issued a couple of new charitable grants, re-committing themselves "to convening, bridging, and accelerating leaders, ideas, and solutions for an online community rooted in equity, safety, participation, and belongin...

Concurrently with a new report from the US National Women’s Law Centre (NWLC) about the impact of the pandemic on women and mothers, Meghan and Harry through their Archewell Foundation have started a new campaign,  a call to action,  asking us alongside themselves to take actions to support women in our communities.

The question that I am posing for you all this week is  "Should Prince Harry have travelled to the UK to attend the memorial service for his late grandfather, Prince Phillip? "

Although Harry had let everyone know in advance that he was not going to come, this did not stopped everyone from:

(a)           Speculating as to why Harry chose not to attend, or 

(b)          Taking an opinion  over whether this was the right decisio...

In a week when Samantha and Thomas Markle made the news for not so good reasons, Meghan and Harry took the high road, announcing that they had made donations to several organizations that are working on the ground to support the people of Ukraine. Ukrainians continue to suffer the effects of Russia’s unwarranted invasion of their country. 

In a post to their Archewell website,  Meghan and Harry announced donations to a couple organi...

Patrick Hill of the UK Daily Mirror newspaper reported in what he termed an Exclusive Interview with Meghan Markle's dad Thomas Markle, writing that Thomas was vowing to tell 'his truth' as he launched his YouTube channel, promising that the chats will be "no holds barred." 

Co-host of the channel and 'close pal'  to Thomas LA based photographer Karl Larsen told the Daily Mirror that he and Thomas were in...

For those of us who have long since given up hope that Samantha Markle would find inner peace and leave Meghan and Harry alone, it was not much of a shock to hear that Samantha has decided that she is not yet done messing around in her half sister’s life, and what better way to garner some more press attention (and maybe get some more paid  TV work) than to sue Meghan for defamation.

As anticipated,  Meghan & Harry received the NAACP President’s Award during the 53rd annual NAACP Image Awards. Meghan and Harry looked absolutely fabulous. They turned up in person for the event and they gave a short speech,  taking it in turns to say some lines. But like all speeches you must not take what they said at face value. Here is a light-hearted take on what Meghan and Harry said,  and what they might have meant by t...

The couple are to be awarded the NAACP President’s Award during the 53rd annual Image Awards that will be televised on the BET channel on Saturday February 26th 2022.

Following their trend of publishing 'breaking'  news stories about Meghan and Harry late on Saturday night, the UK Mail on Sunday and their Mail Online counter part printed the following headline:   “Give me back my bodyguards: Prince Harry threatens legal action against the government and demands return of police protection when he is in the UK because it is not safe for the Sussexes to return to visit.”

Firstly, a happy 2022 to you all. You will have noticed the new intro music to my podcast, aptly called “New Beginnings” as we pull down the holiday decorations, enter a new year, and hope for good things in the year ahead. We haven’t seen much of any of the Royals over recent weeks as they all take their extended holiday breaks. That said, we have had a steady trickle of news coming out about Meghan and Harry.
