I believe that the royal princes subconciously want to get out, and therefore marry girls who don't fit in and sooner or later will flee the pressure. Then she will get the blame, as society likes it. :)

As much as he might want to, Prince Harry cannot run away from being Prince Harry, whether he "steps back" or not. One news report I've heard made the point that if they move to Canada, who's going to provide and pay for their security? It shouldn't be the Canadian taxpayers, in my opinion. This stepping back business affects a lot more people than the immediate family.

But I do feel some sympathy for Harry. If I'm remembering correctly, the Royal Family didn't like his mother. If I'm hearing correctly, now they don't like his wife. Poor guy.  :(

I wonder if they supplied security for the Duke and Duchess of Windsor? It was a different world back then.

I know I mentioned this last November, but every time I see this forum statistic I wonder about it.

Most Online Ever: 1433 (November 05, 2019, 02:23:48 AM)

And right now it also says:

Most Online Today: 955.

WTF?

Yes, I wonder about those stats too......unless we have guests who just keep the site open on their devices all the time? Could be, I guess...... ;D

I'll email Neil and see if he can get to the bottom of it. He knows more about how to search for these internal problems.
