      @Ed Lopow And, you’re a royal follower, bigoted or racist, live that life and you also know her, right? If nothing else it’s clear that the Corporation and the British news outlets are in bed together. Ed, nothing good has ever come out of white supremacy it is a self-limiting hierarchy that at all levels is insecure and full of hate.

      yea money I love how Oprah gobbles all they have to say like an obsessed bear out of a beehive

    • Lee Ann Glazier says:

      @Ed Lopow oh, so you personally know her Ed?. I think you are going by what Piers Morgan and the toxic media are saying

    • Helen R says:

      @Ed Lopow stop lying. Try to read about Meghan other than the rags. NOBODY said a bad word about her. EVER…no friends, exes, colleagues, people with whom she spent a lot off time or interacted very little. Andrew Morton spent almost 2 years trying to dig sh.. and to offer money in States. Even the dad said she is sweet. The dad was PAID by the rags. ..and manipulated. All his past actions indicate him as not so bright. Do you know that his handler from the palace was Knauf, KP secretary? Do you know what his forst wife said about him? Do you know he had 5 adultgrandchildren and never saw 2?
      See the texts submitted to the trial. He texted 3 days before the wedding that he wont fly to Britain for the wedding. He went to the rags and whined he had surgery, while not telling to her, answering her and Harry texts and calls. He lied saying he was not contacted by her and that he could not reach to her.
      YOU CHOOSED NOT TO BELIEVE, but stop stating lies as facts, because that is why was reached to thos..LIES ..hurting people.
      Do you know that Diana did not speak with her mum who called her prostitute. Do you know that Vanessa Bryant is sued by her mum? That is happening for greed and money. 3000 USD are a small fortune in Mexico and he is there for over a decade. She always helped him , HE ADMITTED and SHE took care of his mum. Shame on you

      this is the way for a thousand years

    I love this quote. “I’m not comfortable talking about people I don’t know.”

  3. Use Full says:

    “They don’t report the news, they create the news”. She said a mouth full with that one.

  4. cj maq says:

    What struck me is how horrible “fathers” in this situation have failed their children! Father’s are supposed to sacrifice and protect their families NOT disown them or throw them under the bus. I hope William and Harry prove to be better husbands and fathers!

  5. Alice says:

    From the Royal fam the only one we actually cared about was Princess Diana.

  6. Heather Lynsey says:

    “How do you tell all when you don’t…know me.”

  7. Tammy D says:

    You can tell she’s been ready to speak.

  8. Mbali says:

    Anyone who’s ever been betrayed by family would tell you just how deep that cut is.

  9. A Social Media Consumer says:

    “They don’t report the news, they create the news…” delicious!

  10. kassy vera says:

    The topic about archie’s skin color is just mind boggling .

  11. Tash Thee Boss says:

    “They don’t report the news. They create the news.” It’s still early in the year and all of this tea is spilling out. Welcome to the age of the Aquarius!

  12. lasbagman1 says:

    It must be awful to be betrayed by family on both sides.

    • norma desmond says:

      really? do you really think that? She said in this interview that says that she gave everything up for this marriage. What did she gave up? A mediocre career as a tv actress, a trailer park family, hitting 40 and then she a very vunerable, traumatized guy fell in love with her. In this interview he said he never realised how trapped he was. And in my view she made this pretty clear to him. This is a disaster waiting to happen.

  13. Mark Twaing says:

    In the old days, king families killed each other to keep their power.

  14. Will Meyers says:

    “Spill the Tea” has been taken to a whole new level here.

  15. Thomas Alanis says:

    Why exactly is this news?
    The British Crown has been racist since the beginning of time.

  16. THE LIFE OF H says:

    I swear family members are the ones who inflict more harm and damage to a person than a friend or spouse.

  17. 44excalibur says:

    “They don’t report the news, they create the news.” Welcome to 21st century journalism.


    I watched this interview in 😢. I can’t.

  19. dizzy365 says:

    Why are people surprised at Charles practically disowning Harry? After the way he mistreated Diana? Was I the only one who watched The Crown recently?

  20. Kai Love says:

    She right about one thing . The reporters don’t report news, they create it.
