        I think Meghan Markle is playing Harry like a cheap violin!! She has disrespected the country that accepted her and the family that accepted her. I feel sorry for Harry.

          Typical-- she plays the "race card" and blames the press when the fact is that MM isn't up to the challenge of character that is required of anyone joining that family. By comparison, Kate has done an amazing job, as has Edward's wife, Sophie. Maybe race DOES play a part in one's ability and willingness to behave with dignity, grace, and poise.

            She is not an American movie star.
            Most of us hadn’t even heard of her until Harry was dating her.

              She accepted a job, thren insisted that her employer bow to her needs and sensitivities. That's not how to conduct yourself, to say the least.

                Three years time - divorce? Don’t you think? I think they were mismatched from the start and married too quickly.

                  It’s all about Markle, Markle and Markle. Nothing about their son. Nothing about Harry. And nothing about the Monarchy. Her move is so she’ll be the centre of attention and don’t need to be compared to Kate and not to be told what to do by the Queen. Unfortunately, the prince we admired for so long ended up the “yes dear” type of man. She’s one of the privileged people in UK being married to Harry, yet she is still unhappy that nobody asked her how she feels. How about those people who don’t have anything to put on the table for their kids? Them spending lots of money on private jets to “protect” his family? What’s that? Do they think people will stab them when they see them? BS!!! And people will never forgive Markle for causing this rift between the brothers and the royal family

                            so Charles had an affair with CM and Princess Di with various people? Discreet way of calling her a slut! How British! 3:13. It was known? Common knowledge? This got difficult as some of the royals intruded on their own privacy? Was the life of Diana not enough to educate all of us on the obligations and seriousness of what it takes to be a Royal. Meghan's ego thinks she can break the monarchy, Prince Charles who died in 1972 in a plane accident, Princess Di dies in a car accident....Meghan you are in grave danger. You ignored the life and words and warning from Princess Diana......but in the end the Sussex don't matter much! 4:27 I can't stand any more.

                              Being a "REAL PRINCE" or a "REAL PRINCESS" means that you conduct your life with the sacrificial realization that "It isn't all about ME, MYSELF, and I!"

                                There was plenty of racism about Meghan when she came into the scene, how could these people forget that?

                                                      Harry understand the monarchy, so his behavior is puzzling. His relationship with his family is changing for the worse and he's being isolated from them. He's become a victim. I can't even image what his family is thinking. Irregardless, the whole thing is just sad, weird and unnecessary.

                                                          Both Meghan and Harry are immature, unprofessional individuals. The announcement should have been formally done apart from social media. It reduced his stature as a royal. He does not understand that he was love-bombed by a pro. Meghan is a pretty, narcissistic con artist, much like evangelicals. She won this clueless guys heart. he is not familiar with romantic games, shyster activity because his contact with a commoner like Meghan was limited. She had her sights on royalty and now that she has that baby. His fate is sealed with her one way or another. He won't ever be happy with her because she is not stable and I doubt he is either. We must stay tuned.

There's no constant interruption from the interviewer like in a lot of other interviews which can be really annoying coz the interviewees don't get to finish their chain of thoughts and it's hard for the audience to concentrate too. I hope to see more professional interviews like this in the future.

The truth is Harry wanted out long before meeting Meghan— a fact ignored by those blaming Meghan for leading poor Harry astray. Her treatment made his decision to leave easier. As Harry said “I will always protect my family”... Monarchy must come before feelings. For Harry and Meghan that is a price they no longer wish to pay.

If he indeed loves her, she does not return the emotion. I believe she is a sociopath, having no feelings for anyone but herself. Right or wrong, this is my view. Thank You.
