His Royal Highness Prince Phillip loved pranking his wife, as she did him, here Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II is on her way out and spots her husband dressed up as one of the House guards, she couldn't hide her laughter.

But you honestly didn't hear any of the credible reports about the racial comments that were made about her? From inside of the Royal family, not to mention in the press?
I remember that she claimed someone was worried her kid might be too dark skinned or something.  You say those claims were credible - I assume you weren't referring just to her own pronouncements.  When I hear that a rather - "dramatic" as you put it - D list celebrity who has chosen to rely on controversy and scandal for a livelihood has said something sensational I don't tend to assume verity.

Well, all I can tell you is do a little googling, see some of the absolutely puerile stuff that was written about her in the British press, and you make your own decision.

It's not something that was exactly hidden.

Eh.  It might mean something if it came from the family as you claimed, but it is hard to work up a care that something nasty was written about someone in the press.  UK tabloids being meanieheads is hardly something new or unique to that special snowflake.

Respect her all you like, but I doubt she tried to fit in as much as you claim.

Both the press and the family made racially charged comments about her.

As I said. Google.

How racist can they be? They presided over the era when foreigners have taken over London and much of the country.

The proofs in the puddin, they love brown people, assenting to their crown jewel city being filled and run by foreign peoples.

Different peoples have had their turn at the helm of the isle over its long history, the only difference this time is the color of their skin makes it more obvious.
For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness;

Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them.

For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead

Got to remember most monarchies have had an obsession in keeping their bloodlines pure or royal if you will often arranging marriages between close relatives with some going as far as being incestuous. The Ptolemies being a notable example of the latter and the Hapsburgs* of the former.

The Windsor's treatment of Meghan was to be expected, hundreds of years of bloodline traditions don't die overnight. While there may have been a fair amount of racism involved there was also a *gasp* she's a commoner! aspect to it. To be fair she did bring some of it down on herself acting like a spoiled know it all Hollywood elite with some of her public comments and I probably wouldn't want that kind of drama in my family either.

"I place her credibility on racial issues right up there with Jussie Smollet."

Uhm... remember, she wasn't the only one claiming racist intent by both members of the royal family and the British press.

Harry backed up those claims.

Where do you put his credibility on racial issues?

Or is he just another, literally, ****** lover with no credibility because of that?  ???

I don’t care what color of woman he dips his wick in.  He has motivation to play along with her.  Monetary, domestic harmony, etc.  Besides, he’s a woke leftard regardless, so would have motive to push such a narrative for political reasons.

True but at least her demeanor lined up nicely with that of the Windsors, didn't openly criticizes them, and didn't come across as a potential gold digger.

You've really got to explain what political reasons he would have to have his wife's back.

I guess if you mean he was politically motivated to alienate himself from his family and his country, uhm... success?

As for a money aspect, I don't know their personal finances, but I do know that as senior royals their annual stipends for just breathing were pretty substantial, so I'm not sure that that claim makes much sense.

Jussee Smolette's ploy makes sense for someone who was trying to capitalize off a movement in the United States to solidify his position in the entertainment industry.

Harry and Megan's racism claims had no potential to do that because their positions were already cemented. They were set for life, and they chose to walk away from that...

Sorry, just not buying that as their motivation.

With nothing factual to base it on, my supposition is that Meghan was simply unprepared for what life as a royal requires in terms of protocol. Things like curtsying the first time each day she encounters the queen, for example, are second nature to a Brit like Kate, but we Amurricans have been brought up that we don't bow to anyone -- but as the wife of a prince, such courtesies are expected and required. I'm sure she felt that she didn't fit in and that's probably because she didn't fit in -- and I suspect she didn't make much of an effort to adapt the the new situation. More than likely, she expected the entire royal family to adapt to her.

Stacey Abrams Announces That With A Heavy Heart She Will Succeed Elizabeth II As Queen

Quote
ATLANTA, GA — Rightful Governor of Georgia Stacey Abrams announced that she will succeed Elizabeth II as the Queen of England only moments after the announcement of the Queen's death.

"It is with a heavy heart that I accept my new responsibility as England's new Queen," said Abrams solemnly. "They say 'heavy is the head that wears the crown,' but my head was already heavy, so I'm used to it."

Respect her all you like, but I doubt she tried to fit in as much as you claim.

The teevee reminded me this morning of how she chose to make her political statement of boycotting Trump when he had his first visit with the Queen and Royal Family.

She's simply a Hollywood product akin to Kathy Griffin and the like. Harry is only that way because she has his balls in her purse. He seemed like an okay guy before he got involved with her.
