    8 pages? Really? Dedicated to 2 young people who are presumably in love but aren't doing what the gammon loving press want them to do.

    Hilarious ..... the red tops have hounded them out of the country, and are now p'd off that their (the red tops) little money spinner is buggering off to the US to make their own money.

    Gammons. Don'tcha just love 'em

    It's quite interesting to see that these, really rather crap media outlets such as the Daily Mail which had over 30 stories about it on their front web page whereas only a couple dedicated to the shooting down of a civilian airliner by Iran which could have severe repercussions for the whole world. It really goes to show what is important to their readership and why this world is so ****ed up now....
    Brexit is having a wee in the middle of the room at a house party because nobody is talking to you, and then complaining about the smell.

    Yeh, the amount of coverage in some papers regarding this boring issue is quite ridiculous.

    Default Sadly..

    For me this is just another example of why a Royal should only marry another royal. Meghan just wants to be a celebrity and make as much out of the situation as she can.

    It is almost certain to end up hurting Harry and with a divorce and a lot of damage to the institution of the Monarchy.

    The only way to preserve a Monarchy is for those in line to be dedicated to public duties and to avoid any personal interests.

    Sadly they both need to loose their titles and be pushed out, in the interest of the overall preservation of there even being a Royal family.

    I am strongly a Monarchist though I lived overseas for 12 years even that was in one of our remaining territories.

    The way they announced it seems like a deliberate insult to the Queen. Or if not an insult, at least publicly disrespectful. Why would they do that? Barmy. Or deluded.

    Some newspapers are saying it has all been plotted for ages, was Meghan's plan all along, and reading far too much into it. Daft. We can't know what is going on inside a relationship or what passes in the minds of others. Just take events at face value.

    Happy to pay for their ongoing security, but little else. And the titles will have to go. Lastly, as someone pointed out above, a "transatlantic lifestyle" = environmental homicide.

    Hmm...

    I'm not so keen on paying for their security. If they don't want to be part of the royal family then they shouldn't get any of the services that the tax payer funds. Who is going to pay for their Canadian lifestyle? The Brits certainly shouldn't but I also don't think it's fair to lump it on the Canadians either.

    I would prefer to stop this waste and let Tony B'liar take his chances...

    Tony Blair's police protection costs taxpayers millions, report claims | Politics | The Guardian

    Blair requires as many as 12 police protection officers following his role as prime minister and his advocacy of the invasion of Iraq in 2003, a Daily Telegraph investigation published on Friday claims.Documents seen by the Telegraph allegedly show that Blair sometimes visits as many as five countries a week, at a potential cost of between £14,000 and £16,000 to the public purse. The paper reports that each protection officer was likely to be earning at least £56,000, but could earn more than £70,000 given the overtime they accumulate on foreign trips.

    In 2010 the Mail on Sunday reported that the cost of Blair’s diplomatic protection was £250,000 a year, double the cost for Gordon Brown.
    "If you didn't do anything that wasn't good for you it would be a very dull life. What are you gonna do? Everything that is pleasant in life is dangerous."

    I want to see the hand of history on his collar.

    If someone bumped off the war criminal I doubt anyone would really care.
