His wife, a hero of sorts only in the TV series “Suits,” had hightailed it to Canada, leaving Harry Windsor, formerly known as Prince Harry, to deliver a concession speech.

Make no mistake—no matter the moola they rake in, Harry and Meghan Markle have been sorely defeated and deflated.

Earlier in January 2020, the stumblebum Sussexes had smugly announced to the public that they “planned to carve out a progressive new role within this institution.” The unavoidable implication of that sleight-of-hand was that “this institution” (the monarchy) was just not woke enough for the two’s exquisitely honed sensibilities.

Gallantly has Harry tried, since, to make his subjects believe that it is he, not Meghan Markle—his meddlesome, divisive, American wife—who had attempted, and failed miserably, to outsmart Queen Elizabeth II.

But the crass and callous rollout production, lacking in etiquette and contemptuous of royal protocol, fell flat.

So deeply silly was the Sussexes Instagram statement, that it had brainy royal correspondents and members of the Queen’s Bench snickering that Harry and his Hollywood wife must have been getting bad advice from friends across the Atlantic, who knew nothing about the workings of the British monarchy.

A woman of impeccable class, HM the Queen, aged 93, handled the Markle tantrum with great kindness—even though the couple had informed the world of their antics, before apprising the queen and other members of the Royal Family.

Wrapping up Markle’s failed brinkmanship, Harry unleashed a load of bafflegab, peppered with oddly fatalistic phrases such as, “after so many years of challenges,” “there really was no other option,” and, sadly, “it had come to” this.

Translated: After two years of royal toil, my wife had had enough. She cracked under the duress of being dressed to the nines, served the food of her fancy, watched over and catered to, housed in a palace of her own design, and showered with her heart’s desire and a title.

These were paltry rewards for Markle’s herculean efforts. In a word, Meghan prefers the life of a celebrity to the life of a public servant.

Despite two years of torturous toil, Harry and his “hardworking” bride were prepared “to continue serving the Queen.” Alas, rambled Harry, that “unfortunately, … wasn’t possible.” The Queen was having none of it.

No wonder. Her Royal Majesty embodies mettle. She has lived a life of dedication and duty. Still in her teens, before being crowned, Elizabeth had joined the military, during World War II, where she “drove a military truck while she served.”

ORDER IT NOW

Translated, again: Meghan and Harry (the man of the house comes first) had hoped to serve the queen on their own terms. Her Highness went hardline, the outcome of which is that, for mindlessly following Meghan, Harry and his boorish bride have been stripped of their status as “working members” of the Royal Family, have forfeited their HRH titles and the honor of travelling on behalf of the queen. Their names have been expunged from the court circular. The Sussexes are also in the bad books of the prince of Wales. Prince Charles, after all, pays for his sons’ lavish lifestyle.

According to Alastair Bruce, ABC News’ royalty consultant, and himself a military man, Prince Harry will also lose his honorific military patronages and titles, including “his title as Captain General Royal Marines,” which was especially dear to Harry.

Granted, life at Frogmore Cottage, in Windsor, a place beyond picturesque, didn’t quite cut it for Meghan. But, since it was renovated largely at public expense, down to a yoga studio, a staircase for Meghan’s grand entrances and original paintings from the queen’s own collection—the pair will have to reimburse the Sovereign Grant fund.

That the British monarchy stands for the last vestiges of ancient English tradition is not in dispute. But what do the Duke and Duchess of Sussex stand for in this tawdry saga? The Economist magazine, whose sources crown Meghan Markle as the “principal agent of the current debacle,” tethers “Harry and Meghan to … Marx”:

Markle is a “product of an entertainment business that has done more than any other industry to fulfil Marx’s prediction that ‘all that is sacred’ would be ‘profaned’ and ‘all that is solid’ would ‘melt into air.’”

“The Communist Manifesto” predicted and celebrated that crass commercialism would subject national institutions “to the revolutionary logic of the global market.” “The Sussexes,” muses the Economist’s Bagehot Column, “are … embracing capitalism in its rawest, most modern form: global rather than national, virtual rather than solid, driven, by its ineluctable logic, to constantly produce new fads and fashions.” [Emphasis added.]

“In 21st-century capitalism you accumulate followers in order to monetize them. … In a 21st-century-capitalist society you are propelled around the world in pursuit of the latest marketing opportunity.”

To date, the queen has foiled Meghan’s mindless plan to brand the term “Sussex Royal.” Believe it or not, the two twits had gone and hired a branding agency—the same one that caters to the children’s channel Nickelodeon—and had tried to trademark a Sussex Royal logo.

No doubt the Queen’s Bench has put Meghan and her American pettifoggers in their proper place.

Once upon a time, a dolt from Tinseltown imagined she was a match for the queen of England.

The End.

    HM QEII vs Meghastly Markle – no contest.
    Her Majesty has been in the Royal business a long time: born into at, and at the head of it since 1953. She’s good at it, and adroitly minimized the occasional scandal – which always, somehow, involved some woman behaving badly.
    Markle has no idea of how it all works, never did, never will.
    I remember, years ago, various ‘celebs’ were being asked for sage advice, and Prince Philip offered this: “Never teach your grandmother to suck eggs”.
    Pity Harry didn’t get the message. But then, she’s not really his grandmother, is she? Maybe it’s all been part of a deep plot to get the cuckoo out of the nest without leaving egg on any Royal face.

    Maybe it’s all been part of a deep plot to get the cuckoo out of the nest without leaving egg on any Royal face.

    Or maybe it’s an attempt at the institution itself. Monarchy is one of the last nationalist institutions which has not yet wholly succumbed to globohomo: the church is a joke, the family is all but gone and the village community is fading fast too.

    One of the last bastions left is monarchy, and as long as Lizzie (or Daisy, as the Danish queen is called) lives, it is on ceremonial occasions that I can wave the flag without a feeling of being a prop in someone’s scam.

    I bet the royal houses of Europe are very high on the globalist hit list.

    Ilana,

    Well done. My wife thinks following the plight of Harry and Megan is gossip, but I’m fascinated with it as a test on how western society is reacting to “woke” feminism … the kind in which self-actualization is the only moral and social standard (and consequences be damned) that a woman need heed.

    As a professional “gold digger” and social climber, Meghan thought that she could improve her “brand” by becoming a member of the Royal Family. Now, she sees the opportunity to cash in on that “brand” by commercializing the Royal Family and her connections to it … “self-actualization” for Meghan and the consequences be damned. It looks like Queen Elizabeth is intervening, as she should, to ensure that doesn’t happen.

    As for Harry, what a “cuck” … what a fool!

  13. Meghan has seen Fergie and Camilla and does not want to follow that road. Meghan is 38, well past peak Hollywood or peak model. The Sussex ploy gives Meghan five years to earn big $, then she can dump the Prince and retire to some place in New Mexico (like Ali McGraw). Child Archie Sussex can attend Brown and play lacrosse. Archie can settle into something of a Chelsea Clinton life sitting on boards and being the face of some organization or another. Archie won’t be a soldier like his father because where would he soldier? And what would be the point of a former royal putting on a uniform and getting dirty. Of course the real soldier in the family was Prince Andrew who flew helicopters in the Falklands war–a war that actually mattered to the UK. That is a digression. My larger point is that depending on where the Sussexs settle down. In five years if its Canada or just after they have been married 10 years if its California, the marriage ends and Meghan moves on. Meghan takes a hefty divorce settlement and writes a juicy book.

  19. Dumbo says:

    Now it’s too late, if the British monarchy really wanted to do something about it, Harry shouldn’t have been allowed to marry the bitch. Why marry a divorced gold-diggin’ mixed-race American in her mid-thirties, when basically any pretty young English girl would be happy to be a princess? Unless of course that was the plan all along and Harry was not legitimate etc, but, I don’t think so.

  20. AgBars says:

    Ms. Mercer, as usual, is strikingly observant. One wonders what might have been if Prince Ginger had had the good taste and sense, to, perhaps, take a tour of one of the many colleges in the SEC to look for an appropriate bride. Surely, there would have been an ample supply of beautiful, classy and refined women suitable for the trip across the pond. Instead, he has hooked up with a woman who is the antithesis of anything whatsoever to do with royalty. One only need be reminded of the wedding ceremony that was, well, straight up ghetto. Best of luck to you, old chap, and your urban bride. Left to sustain us will be your brother and the magnificently beautiful, charming and classy Katherine.

  22. As usual, because (((Mercer))) is not a Western woman, she has no clue about the English monarchy.

    I have to give the vrouwelijke aap Merkle credit for why she wanted out from the “royal” family. She refused to curtsy before the trashy old biddy Betty. I like to look at the Daily Mail for news. One of the biggest stories after Merkle married Harry was about her inability to curtsy properly before Betty. It’s not that Merkle couldn’t curtsy, she wouldn’t. I’m glad she refused to curtsy. Poop Frannie needs to learn this, but, as usual, because he is a cucked Western male, he is always smooching the stinky feet of black, Muslim invaders in Europe.

    I blame the trashy old biddy Betty and Prince Chuckles for this “crisis.” Instead of setting down rules, like telling Harry not to date or marry black/Asian females, the entire “royal” family welcomed Harry’s pet with open arms. Because they didn’t want to be called racists, Merkle has collapsed the monarchy. Good for Merkle.

    Old biddy Betty is not a woman of impeccable class. Her “service” is WWII is worthless because it was the English who started WWI and WWII. Prince Philip is a serial adulterer. Prince Chuckles wanted to be a feminine hygiene product: https://www.popsugar.com/celebrity/photo-gallery/16023517/image/16023819/Tampongate Prince Randy Andy was a regular on the Epstein Express. Diana of Wales dated Muslims. This is why (((Mercer))) likes these degenerates. I am so glad we got of the monarchy in 1776.

    The last king of Egypt, Farouk said: The whole world is in revolt. Soon there will be only five Kings left–the King of England, the King of Spades, The King of Clubs, the King of Hearts, and the King of Diamonds. It is time for the English to get rid of their royalty.

    Harry is no longer a royal and is the father of a quadroon – Orange Archie. He has destroyed his life and Merkle has destroyed the monarchy. These degenerates belong in Africa.

    I’m an American but I have developed an interest in the Dutch language. I like the way the words look.

    I studied in Europe so the newspapers would always have stories about the royal families and their shenanigans. Monarchy was useful in developing the West, but it is no longer needed. I suppose the Europeans could have them lead some of their ceremonies and parades, but once they are done, they have to live normal lives and get jobs. The bowing, curtsying and your majesty greetings are ridiculous.

    I often hear trad Catholics or other conservatives babble about how we need monarchies to restore order in the West. There are no monarchies in Eastern Europe and they are doing very well. Many Western European countries like Sweden, Norway, England, Holland and Belgium have monarchies, but their countries are collapsing because of the black/Asian/Muslim invasions. I know that they don’t have any real power, but still, they must speak out and save their countries. They know about Queen Isabella and King Ferdinand’s Reconquista.

    Hollywood is still trying to the Kennedy and Clinton myths alive. The Kennedys are gone. Hilhag Cankles has a documentary movie in the Sundance Film Festival. She’s gone. It looked like she would get in the presidential race again, but she knows she finished. She’ll just waddle around and try to get some attention whenever she can.

    Lidia – just from the little I’ve seen and read about Meghan Markle (which is very little), she does appear to have narcissistic traits: self-centered, entitled, manipulative.

    This article might play well to Brits, but is totally bizarre to us Americans. Bowing to people “born to lord it over you”, is in fact, sick. We can understand how Harry, who possibly is not even related to these people, but only to his half-brother William, was tired of being kept like a poodle. A slave of the state is still a slave, no matter how gilded the cage. The Queen of Meddle (not “mettle”) had managed every minute of his life since managing his own mother to her own death, and now she was reaching out with the shackle, er um, poodle collar, for his own son, too, we can be sure choosing for him all the most “appropriate” schools and nannies, as a new “royal” slave of the state before he even turned 1. Rumors were already circulating that a Diana-esque car crash was being arranged for Harry’s wife as it had been for his mother, which of course would trigger PTSD in anybody. Harry has said outright he is doing this to protect his family from the same deadly game that killed his mother. LISTEN TO HIM. Don’t think in time William (son of the same murdered mother) and George won’t together watch their cousins’ lives of freedom with growing envy, and in time might even sign a pact between them to end the slave of the state monarch system for themselves and their own descendants. Murder and mayhem (protecting weirdo “tampon” Charles, nutty eugenicist Phillip, & pedo Uncle Andrew anybody?) is just too high a price to pay.

    Far from being whimpered by Meghan, Harry’s standing up to the Queen to protect his young family are the actions of a real man. We Americans welcome him to 1776.

    My interpretation of this saga is quite different.

    The royal family had a serious scandal and a real idiot to get out of trouble – prince Andrew. Harry is not the son of prince Charles. He was disposable.

    The PR geniuses of the royal family concocted this whole drama so as to sideline attention from the real scandal of prince Andrew. Of course, mainstream media, Google and all the rest of them did their bit as well.

  44. The British Crown has always been an enigma in that it has enjoyed support from the majority of the people forever and at a cost. It occurs to me that it may be a hedge against the potential or even likely failure of multicultural democracy. That would put them well ahead of other multicultural democracies that seem doomed to failure. Sadly for mankind, a benevolent dictatorship is still the best form of government in a crisis.

  51. It would be ironic that this whole escapade might be for the Prince to expatriate, establish an American domicile, and become a sovereign. Then he would be the social equal to his grandmama… and outranking his father, Prince Charles.

    At the Revolution, the sovereignty devolved on the people and they are truly the sovereigns of the country.

    Prince Harry isn’t the first man to lose his mind over a piece of exotic tail. But if he really wanted a mocha-colored minx, where were his advisers to warn him against Ms. Markle, who first came to his bed already ridden hard by God-only-knows how many others?

    Is it just beyond conceivable that he just got to know her and they hit it off? Do men fall in love? Or do they see potential spouses as horses (“ridden hard”)?

    I’m asking in all sincerity.

    I keep hearing a great deal about a thing called “female hypergamy,” wherein women supposedly seek the “highest quality mate” they can get, as if they were going shopping. Remarks like this leave me suspicious that this theory is nothing more than projection.

  53. Isn’t it about time for a remake of The Wizard of Oz? Mrs. Markle would be perfect for the wicked witch of the West. Mr. Markle was born to play Toto.

    A few years ago the Queen said in one of her Christmas Day speeches, something along the lines of “How lucky you are to live in a diverse society, diversity is a strength not a threat”.

    A lot of people give the Queen the benefit of the doubt in terms of just how much she supports mass immigration, but with quotes like that I think there’s no doubt whose side she is on.

    There are strong monarchist movements in some eastern European countries, especially Serbia. There are no monarchies there today because they were abolished by the Communists.

    If Harry gets American citizenship and the US decided to re-establish the monarchy, he would have a good historic claim to be head of the US Royal Family. Related to the UK Royal Family but independent.
    And as head of the US armed forces he could pull the US military out of the ME.

    (((Mercer))) is not a paleolibertarian. She is a Joooooess who will take the side that is most convenient for her.

    She and her rabbi father were kicked out of South Africa in the 80s because of their anti-apartheid work.

    The British royal family is connected with the Rothschilds. The old biddy Betty has to ask permission to enter the Jew-controlled City of London. This is why Mercer has an interest in the the monarchy.

    The queen is old. Next in line is a woke wannabe buffoon, so don’t count out the Sussexes.

    The woke wannabe buffoon is likewise old. Then again, Wills is a millennial.

    I think he first saw her on TV and said to his friends that she was very much his type. Also of note is that she bears a certain resemblance to his brother William’s sister-in-law who married a hedge fund guy not so long ago.

    This is comical . Meghan is doing PR for herself by posting dozens of pictures of her ‘activist’ work before she married Harry……trying to do damage control…..but not surprisingly she has nothing about Harry’s activities before he married her.
    Harry is going to get the shit end of this stick……he either tags along as a prop for her ambitions or wakes up and heads back to the family.

    “didn’t expect the fawning:

    That one’s simply erroneous.

    He should have seen Meghan in that light. His trick-selector was off if he was actually attracted to that. Maybe, like Kaepernick, he got caught up in Woke culture, swept along. But she’s a pig, like the comment said, ridden hard. A young man has to consider that in whatever area of life he’s in. This slob, she’s 38 for Gawd’s sake, what’s left in her to fall in love with? Seriously. All women out in the single life are ridden hard, discarded, dumped, except many of the fattest. Run of the mill women in that venue, Hollywood and beyond trade their asses for scripts, attend all the best hookup orgies. They all have a favored, discreet OB/Gyn to quietly treat their STDs as they occur and who also take care of their abortions and of course, they’re all on hormonal birth control since they were 14. Throw in the cocaine, booze, weed and lately, more and more, cigarettes. I would have thought her womb a hideously toxic affair requiring lots of IVF, but lo and behold, another mud baby. Them Blacks sure can breed.

    I applaud your commitment to romance, Rosie, but Jesus, Meghan is a rough, rough area to look for anything other than crass consumption and attention and avarice. There’s not a hint of love in her eyes for Harry. In her eyes, he’s a loser, hard to read romance there. There is NO chemistry between them. I’d think they got laid with each other exactly once. Although, do they DNA test the baby? With Meghan, it wouldn’t be a bad idea.

    WTF was Harry thinking? A mulatto divorcée, and just to make matters worse, an American? (I joke about the American part, but really, he couldn’t find a nice English lass?). Being a British royal is actually a lot of work. Like, it’s 10pm, and my staff is like, “OK, Your Highness, tomorrow at 8am promptly, you will bless the gimps at the Twaddlesex-Upon-Sewer Sanitorium, and then at 8:30 you will…” I wouldn’t want to be one. Markle obviously can’t handle it.

    “Meghan prefers the life of a celebrity to the life of a public servant.” That sums it up perfectly. Famous for doing nothing. Typical American female, she had the Disney idea of princess life being all champagne and money and whatnot.
