We now know why Prince Harry took so long to accept his invitation to the coronation.
Far from feeling sorry for his duty to king and country, he was obsessed with the seating plan. He needed to know who he and Meghan, if she bothered to attend, would sit behind and who would be in front of them.
How arrogant to refuse to say until the last minute whether they were coming or not. How rude not to respond to the RSVP date.
And all because the narcissistic prince was concerned about his own dignity and the couple’s place in the royal hierarchy.
Harry and Meghan have made their choice. They no longer work in the royal family. This vengeful pair should be grateful to have received an invitation. And given how rude Harry was in accepting it, it should be placed at the back of Westminster Abbey behind a very tall pillar – an irrelevant spare sitting in the dark.
As for Meghan, I’m glad she’s not coming. But not half as happy, I bet, as the other female members of the royal family. Because the sad truth is that ever since Harry and Meghan moved to California, the self-proclaimed feminist and women’s empowerment campaigner has done nothing but slander women in the royal family. Like a sniper, she shot down each one of them. First the Queen, telling Oprah Winfrey that a member of the royal family had questioned the color of their firstborn’s skin, implying that the royal family was racist.
The BBC tech us for fools
Three things emerged from BBC journalist James Clayton’s interview with Twitter boss Elon Musk. First, Musk was honest, talking about his mistakes. Second, he has a sense of humor saying he made his dog the CEO. Third, that our cash-strapped BBC can afford a North American technology journalist!
Although the remark was clearly not aimed at the monarch herself, she was said to have been deeply hurt as the head of the family.
Then Kate was murdered in the Duchess’ Netflix series with the suggestion that she was cold, unwelcoming and made Megs cry before her wedding. When Sophie, then Duchess of Wessex, offered Meghan a helping hand, she was rebuffed.
Camilla was also targeted in Harry Spare’s book, reviewed by his wife. In it, Harry argued that she threw him “right under the bus” and “sacrificed” him on the altar of her PR operation to become queen.
Meghan insulted all the older women in the family. After welcoming her into their midst, they seemed to encounter only betrayal.
That’s why they’re all so happy that she’s staying away. Forever, we hope.
Too quick to judge. . .
Taylor Swift is breaking up with her actor boyfriend of six years, Joe Alwyn, and there are rumors she’s had at least eight boyfriends in 15 years. Her detractors should shake off — she’s one of the most gorgeous, talented and successful female artists in the world, and that’s a modest total. Mick Jagger had so many lovers in one night.
Fergie is forgotten
Disgraceful not to invite the Duchess of York to the coronation of King Charles.
Despite being extremely annoying, Fergie has remained loyal to the royal family and could have made millions writing explosive books about Diana’s marriage or Charles’ infidelity since she’s been ringside for decades.
To her credit, she never threw dirt at the Royal Family – perhaps because she’s been too busy cleaning up after Andrew.
The Gentleman Farmer of TV
How chivalrous Yorkshire shepherdess Amanda Owen’s husband, Clive, to appear on TV and stand up for her after she had an affair for five years.
He attributes the breakup to his own insecurity over his success and his drinking and inability to support the mother of nine.
He might be right – after all, it takes two to make or break a marriage.
The four Strictly judges are demanding an 11% pay rise. Shirley Ballas is already on £500,000 for three months’ work. The extra £55,000 she wants is more than the £35,000 professional dancers receive for putting themselves to work and without whom there would be no show. A PR dis-as-ter darling, as Craig Revel Horwood would say.
Farewell Mary Quant, who passed away at the age of 93. The mother of the mini skirt got me in trouble with my mother, who forbade me to wear one. So I squirmed in the mini, covered it with a maxi wrap that I took off when I left the house. Mom was never the wiser.
More than 1,000 viewers complained about Channel 4’s Naked Education, where different forms of adults appear naked in front of children as young as 14 to normalize body types. Raw! But why blame only Ch4? Which parent would allow their child to participate in the series?
Keir Starmer insists that some women have penises while Rishi Sunak confirms that no women do. Well done Rishi, but a sorry state when the future of the country comes down to these kind of waves.
After the fallout from Keir Starmer’s election posters saying the prime minister thinks sex offenders shouldn’t be jailed, Labour’s poll lead has shrunk to the smallest since Sunak became prime minister. The meaner Keir gets, the higher Rishi’s ratings go up.
An insult Liz Truss was chosen to deliver at the Margaret Thatcher Freedom Lecture in Washington – when Lady T was Leader of the Opposition for four years, served nearly 12 as Prime Minister and won three general election, while Truss lasted 49 days.
Nice to meet you too, Paul
The first episode of the final series of Paul O’Grady’s For The Love Of Dogs – filmed before his death – ends with him dragging himself away from Newfoundland Peggy. He leaves the poor dog, who is still waiting for him forever at home, with an epitaph that could have come from the millions of fans who loved Paul himself so much: “Okay darling, it was a pleasure to to know you”. It’s hard to say goodbye.’
Amanda Holden returns to Britain’s Got Talent tonight, marking her 16th year on the show. Crikey, with this body, can she really be a 52-year-old mom with two kids? I used to think Amanda was kinda dumb, but damn it, does she keep fighting. She does BGT as well as a daily show on Heart radio while remaining happily married, so that’s a golden buzzer from me.
The leader of the posh doctors’ union behind the BMA strikes says he’s sorry he missed the walkout because he’s on vacation with full pay. How about GP trainee Robert Laurenson apologizes that the cruelly calculated strike would have led to an increase in excessive deaths. And say sorry to the families of those who died needlessly.
After discovering that her partner Davide Sanclimenti had revealing photos of models on his phone, Love Island’s Ekin-Su Culculoglu tweeted, “No man will ever take you seriously with only half-naked pics of you in a bikini.” Perhaps that was the irony of Ekin-Su, who rose to prominence on the TV show. . . half-naked in a bikini.
Despite the vicious backlash JK Rowling has faced over her views on the genre, Warner Bros has announced they’re giving her the job of executive producer on their decade-long new Harry Potter TV series. Trans-hugs Daniel Radcliffe and Emma Watson have to choke on their lentils and quinoa.
