  1. There's nothing written in British law prohibiting Harry from voting. Rather, it's not done as monarch and senior royal suppose to remain politically neutral.

    That hair scream hollywood show biz, so distracting. That color is not a good fit for her.

    1. Please be original if you feel the need to hate on Meghan. The Hollywood angle has been overdone. If you do need to invoke Hollywood Hostility toward Meghan due to lack of imagination or a strong desire to spew venom because you routinely hate people you have never met, at least be accurate. It is obvious that you have no idea what Hollywood or "show biz" is. What does Meghan's hair have to do with Hollywood? IT BOGGLES THE MIND. She is not living in Hollywood. All of California is not Hollywood. Long hair is not Hollywood. Your comments are ignorant. We get it. You don't like the woman you don't know, have never met, and never will meet. We also know that you support the tabloid media and are either bored or very gullible because you believe the trash you read. We also know you may be colorblind because she wears the color well. It compliments her skin tone beautifully and is so summery.

    2. @ Anon 12:38, I guess you are not very familiar with Hollywood, if you mean that is the type of hair worn by celebrities... umhhh no, quite the contrary. Her hair looks more like somebody that hasn't had a professional cut in a while, possibly by choice. You need to get a little more creative to demean this woman, she definitely sounds eloquent, educated and interesting, hating on her makes you sound a little dense. I don't like very long hair on anybody, that's just my personal taste, but she looks FINE!!!!!

    5. Seriously ano 12:38 this is to stupid. Meghan looks great in a hair color that is her own or close to her own. After all she is an afro american with black hair from birth. Nothing wrong with the style either. She sounds educated, sincer, engaged and is using her role for something good. Deal with that not the hate...

  2. That shade of orange is pretty on her and I like Meghan’s make-up. Her hair is well styled but she could cut 3-5 inches off. I think her hair at this length overwhelms her delicate features.

    1. I agree! Her make-up is very fresh and light here. I hope after the quarantine (if Covid-19 is ever contained in this country...) she will go for a big chop! Her features are very delicate and I think a shorter hairstyle (maybe a lob?) would compliment them better.

      However, I understand that it's very difficult to get a haircut right now in California, unless it's outdoors. I can't imagine the logistics of being a high profile person and having paparazzi clogging the sidewalk as you get a hair cut. Personally, my partner cut my hair at home (he was extremely nervous) but I'm not sure if Prince Harry is up for the challenge!

      It's lovely that the DoS got to support this cause and Ms. Ramshaw. They both attended Northwestern!

    2. I think a haircut that hit her collarbone would look great and still give her flexibility with styling. I don’t know if I would venture into a hair salon if I lived in California.I live in CT and the salons were open for a month before I felt comfortable enough to get my hair done. My appointment was the first one of the day, too.

    1. Are you aware that hair grows? The State of California only recently has allowed for outdoor haircuts and in the grand scheme of things getting a haircut isn't the most pressing matter.

    2. Hmm. if normal hair grows that fast I'll want her to tell us all what's the secret.
      But I get it. When in south Cal what ever is in vogue, including woke causes

    3. A healthy diet, sound mind, and open heart helps hair grow.

      Women's suffrage, civic and political participation are woke causes? Oh dear I hate to tell you but it has roots in the 1800s and here in the United States voting rights for women were instated in 1920.

      Of course, if you're trying to find ways to insult the DoS I guess anything that she works on is considered a fad and not actually impactful to our fellow human beings. Women in politics, our black brother and sisters, vulnerable seniors who need nourishment, I guess supporting them is just en vogue and they don't truly matter.

I must say I love the background in this as well (it looks more fitting than the previous plain wall they used before). She gets 10/10 from me. The Duchess of Sussex should keep it up.

    1. A patronising, elitist CHAIR? Good God, these comments are getting more insane by the day. At least it is original. Stupid, but original.

      Hair salons are closed in California. We are trimming our own hair, trimming each other's hair, or letting it grow. I haven't heard of any salons providing services out of doors, but that is all that is allowed at the present time. Who is advising her? COVID.

      Delete
    2. You people so gullible about no hair stylist available. If you comment at all check local guidelines. They allow those services resume if it's done outdoor. Personally I think she prefers it like that. Which is fine, it's her hair. I just think its overwhelming.
      And if you are her true fan and practice her preaching of kindness then calling other people stupid is far from being kind. Just saying.

      Delete
    3. Anon 8:34 I am not sure what your comment means. What is so gullible? The previous comment states that only outdoor services are allowed. As a Californian, I personally only know of one men's barber providing services 3 days a week outside. My stylist has not worked in months, with the exception of the two weeks salons reopened. It is also over 100°F in much of the state right now. No one is sitting outside to get their hair done in this heat, providing one can actually find a stylist that can create a setup outside with water, electricity, chair, and mirror, all while being good enough to work while stylist and client are masked (mask mandate) and battling the heat. Again, what is the gullible part?

      You also claimed there was name-calling. No one was called stupid. If you reread the comment, it says the comment about the chair was stupid. Frankly, I think it was a stupid comment. "That wing chair is dated and come across as patronizing and elitism." That comment comes across as a desperate attempt to say something critical just because there is an opportunity to do so, and that was all that the person commenting could come up with. It is lame and ridiculous. It is just a chair.

      I do agree with you and the others that she would probably look better with a little less hair. I am not offended by long hair, nor do I care that she has long hair. She keeps her style relevant, changing the style according to her outfit and event. I love that she has versatility with longer hair. I suspect that she is enjoying this time not having to worry about her hair as much, just as so many women here in the US have discovered how nice it is to live a slower paced life since working from home, and rediscovered comfortable clothes and shoes. Something else I think about is that men tend to like long hair. Harry may love her hair long. Where hair is concerned, I think Princess Anne is a much bigger problem. Her hair style has looked terrible for the majority of her life, yet she is not drawn and quartered for it as Meghan is for pretty much nothing. Just something to think about.

    3. Ms. Electra can change the themes and focus at any time. Why? Because the blog is hers. Participating respectfully is a gift that is extended to all.
      1. They have privacy. Since moving to CA the leaks have stopped and you see only what they want you to see. The trash mags, are left with cutting holes in fencing, flying drones, interviewing high school friends and former co-workers from many years ago.
      2, Harry is 'royal' by birth, and by extension his wife, unless you have defrocked him, because his family has not.
      3. The fact that what looks like a simple orange blouse can be sourced to HB shows commitment to fashion as part of the topic.
      4. Something (which we do not know) had to have provided a catalyst for their departure. The family continues function as it always has in spite of the crisis created by the media, for the gullible.

  17. Meghan looks lovely as usual. The color is very fresh and summery. Those are hair extensions - she suddenly went from long to very long overnight. And you can always tell extensions - they separate into strands and ropes. But it's her head and her money - I'm sure she got the best on the market. Although there is some discussion about exploiting women in the developing world to supply the human hair market. I'm a bit surprised Meghan did not take this into consideration. Anyway, I wish her and Harry the best. They are truly caught between a rock and a hard place (the Spanish say it better - "between the sword and the wall.")

From May to December 2018 she wore a £269,531 wardrobe and £211,692 for 2019. For a Pet Charity visit her wardrobe was £1507 worth and for Smart Works visit another of her charities it was £4,482.

  26. It's so terrible that a woman comes forward to support a positive initiative created by women for women and the level of engagement is all about her hair and make-up like the start up discussed isn't a positive option for all women seeking relevant media. Get better, they did exactly this to Hillary in the 90s and it just discounts competent women. Who cares about her hair or make-up, that's her business. This kind of media gives alternative content that considers a womens perspective when it comes to politics - so rare, don't undermine the interviewee and what they represent.

  29. From Joann - I think she looks very nice here. The color on her is very flattering. But I don't like that much hair on her. It's distracting. It falls too close to her face and obscures it. Her face is her best feature and I wish she would quit hiding it. Actually, I don't like straight, long hair on most women. The TV anchors/reporters are all wearing it and I don't like it. They cut it off with a straight edge across and usually have two or three shades of color going on. I prefer at least a soft wave or curls. But I guess I'm not in fashion and I would hate to read what people would say about my outdated hair style.

For years I have done my best to fight the stereotype that women are petty, nosy, gossippy, envious, beings that can't coexist together without fighting and attacking other women. I have a daughter, sisters, friends, colleagues & neighbors, they come in all sizes, colors and political stances, and I won't ever dare to judge or insult them simply because they don't conform with my views.
    There are comments above that seem rooted in ideology and information gathered from the tabloids, and it just disheartening. We need to be better, and raise our little ones to not denigrate other human beings. If you dislike a person that you don't know, and her actions don't affect anything in your life, perhaps you should just move on, and do something constructive instead.

    I feel it is her hypocrisy that bothers some of us. Meghan must be careful to avoid the "Do as I say, not as I do" syndrome that is rampant in the U.S. right now (ahem - hello Mr. President).

    I personally love to read the comments here, whatever their content. We come together from all over the world to share our thoughts. If we don't agree, we can say so or just keep strolling. The spotlight will soon move to another royal.

    1. @ Phyllis/Daniela. At the end of the day, the decision to leave was made by the couple yet Meghan is singled out for the harsh, even senseless criticism (see the yak comment above) mostly from women. It is always the woman tempting an easily persuaded man to his doom.
      Hypocrisy dressed as criticism in this case singles out one member of a family that flies in private jets, drives gas guzzling Range Rovers, lives in large houses that likely need fossil fuels to heat and cool, and have amassed vast wardrobes of clothes that take a toll on the environment in terms of the dyeing process alone.
      Moving any royal person from one place to another is never an exercise in conservation. Airplanes, yachts, fleets of cars, guards, service people etc. all of whom have to be transported to a specific location.
      It seems to be okay if some continue to enjoy the privileges without shame or accountability as long as they show up to shake hands and 'lift the spirits' of the subjects or dazzle at gala events. ...but not these two.

    2. You can’t really think there is no hate directed towards Meghan. Just taking her hair as an example, her messy buns were considered so bad by so many that the “p” word (protocol) was being thrown around. Other royal women wore similar styles, Letizia being one, and it passed with barely a notice. The same has happened with her clothes (wearing a particular color at the “wrong” time of year, when two more royal women do the exact same thing the same week without a mention). There are comments that are made that it is clear the commenter was stretching for an insult, simply because there is an opportunity to make one and not have to take accountability for their words. Some are so anxious to say something negative that they don’t even fully read what they are commenting on, making them sound foolish. There is the diehard group of people that insist that Harry and Meghan are no longer royal and they shouldn’t be on this blog anymore. It has been explained over and over again that they are still royals, but some people won’t let it go. Instead of showing some maturity by ignoring the topics they have no interest in, they channel their inner preadolescent and resort to “mean girl” antics.

      The claims of hypocrisy...fair and not. Meghan is known for going out of her way to source clothes from companies that are sustainable, help their local communities, etc. I can’t say other royals in the BRF don’t do the same, but it is not something that I have heard highlighted. Regarding vehicles, I have seen all of the BRF driving Range Rovers. I do know that H & M have used a car service while in California. Those are SUVs, which is common, and done for safety as much as anything else. In California, there are loads and loads of hybrids and electric vehicles. I haven’t paid any attention to whether or not they have been in hybrids, but it would be no surprise at all. This is a very green state. Their home most likely has solar power as well. They very have the sun for it, and I think it would be unusual if the home didn’t. Everything here is recycled, to the point of getting fined if you put recycling in the garbage or you contaminate the recycling. I am sure they are doing more than most to reduce their carbon footprint. Since none of us know anything for certain about what is reported, we can only speculate.

  40. Dear Cherry,
    Sadly, you and some other people consider criticism to be "derogatory comments ... stereotype .... attacking." Many people are already afraid to criticize something, because they may be accused of hate, if the person being criticized is a woman - of sexism, if the person being criticized is a person of color from racism. What happened to freedom of speech?
    "dare to judge or insult them" - A public official must be prepared for criticism. Criticism is not judging or insulting. The public has the RIGHT to criticize. My parents experienced a communist regime (Czechoslovakia) and they know what it's like - they can't speak freely. After the end of communism, politicians from the West came to us - "to teach us democracy" and one of their councils said: "I do not agree with your opinion, but I will do everything to allow you to express it freely."
    Dear Cherry, how would you call someone who travels by private jet and his 16-bathroom residence produces a huge carbon footprint while encouraging other people to live and travel ecologically?
    As how would you call someone who accuses the media of "toxicity" and at the same time his people (Scoobie and others) write a book attacking other family members and their staff (Staff can't defend themselves because they have a duty of secrecy)?

    4. Daniela, the issue of one’s freedom of speech is not in question, the issue of abusing that right is what is being questioned. At some point in our lives, we all have experienced someone saying or believing something that is not true about us or someone we are close to. Try to remember how that felt, then times that by a million. That should put you in the ballpark of how it might feel to be Meghan. The more people want to find fault in you, the more they are willing to believe things that are outrageous. We all have experienced a story growing from its original version into something unrecognizable. That does not fall under freedom of speech, it is an abuse of that right we are so lucky to have—all in an effort to hurt and spread gossip. When spreading stories that you have no personal knowledge of and can’t verify, you are wrong to state it as fact. That does not fall under “opinion”. You are trying to defend your right to give your opinion, which you have every right to do, but make sure it is an actual opinion and not tabloid gossip that you are spreading. An opinion is “I think she would look better if she had several inches cut from her hair” or “I think she looks more attractive when her hair is pulled back.” Gossip and tabloid fodder is, “She is wearing the hair from poor, underprivileged women.” That is purely speculative, stereotyping, and hateful. It in no way represents an opinion. A comment like that is biased and designed to be hurtful. Those are the comments that are objected to. Legitimate criticism is fine and welcome. Hate for the sake of hate is childish and petty and really needs to come to an end. The world has so many bigger things to put all that energy into.

  41. Whether she's in Hollywood or out of Hollywood, the hair looks terrible.

  42. @Daniela, I firmly believe on freedom of speech and civil dissent, but that's not what most comments are about on this thread. Catty remarks, and judgements about their private lives and family dynamics is not honest criticism, nobody on this thread know what brought this couple to the point of leaving their Royal life behind, is just speculation. I also believe that you don't have to retreat to the woods and live in a hut to try and make your environment a little better, most of us take baby steps, and instill good habits in our children, and yet there is always that plastic bottle, that AC too high, and a car trip instead of a bike ride, that doesn't make us hypocrites, it makes us humans doing our best. I personally can't identify with any of these public people, I don't know them, and they don't impact my life.
    Finally, I do believe that getting behind a keyboard to demean others is not a desirable quality.
    Regards

    1. Cherry, but it's Harry and Meghan who attacking their family (royal family) - not directly, of course, but through "friends".
      I think their speeches are hypocritical and I am not afraid to say it openly.

    2. Maybe because Prince William is not a very good speaker , and his sense of fashion is whack 😃😃😃😃😃

    3. I would suppose when this blog decides to start following men’s fashion. Do look back. There are videos of other royal women speaking. I guess you missed them.

  44. I don't understand why all of you folks take this so seriously. how many of you, in all honesty, would listen if she was still a supporting actress on a TV show and pontificate to you on how to behave and live your life. Be honest.

    2. Anon@1:36, and how do you know that H&M have collaborated with the book ? Right, you read that in the tabloids? Do you think that The Cambridges also have anything to do with all the previous books and publications where the writers trash the Suxesses? . The facts are that none of the people here know anything about these people's lives, 99% of the stuff in dubious tabloids are nothing but speculation, and tidbits that they get (for a price) from people around them. Do you also believe that Prince William has been having affairs, and all the idiocy about Kate published by the yellow press? I believe that some only believe the gossip according to their personal likings... that being said, going public about things that they ignore , and taking sides for a family that is light years away from them, seems ridiculous.

  46. Can people please grow up and stop the hate it's embarassing to read how smal-minded some people really are. Do we really have to be so bitter? Treat Meghan and the others with dignity and respect. Sour graps just backfires...

  47. @1:36 Why are you taking sides in a family dispute? Be an impartial observer! They would not give you or I the time of day. How are their speeches hypocritical. Should they just continue to pollute and keep their ideas to themselves? As the Lorax asks, "Who speaks for the trees"?

  51. I do not know how she got her hair cut before marrying Prince Harry but you can believe she hasn't put one foot in a beauty boutique since the marriage. I am positive her hair stylist/make-up artist comes to her home!!!

    1. Your point?

    2. Anon@ 7:55, obviously any person of means can afford an stylist to come to their house, and I would venture to say that thousands are doing it, I would also say that many others for their own personal reasons don't feel comfortable with a person that is exposed to many others coming into their space. It looks like the duchess has opted for the latter, either way is her choice and there is nothing reprehensible about it. If she likes her hair this way so be it. I personally don't care for very long hair, I also don't like princess Ana's , Máxima, or Rahnias hair, but that is just a fashion respectful critique, nothing to do with them as people.

  52. It's not journalism when parties to the interview spend the whole time telling each other how "amazing" they both are, and how they agree on absolutely everything.

    1. Who said it was journalisms?
      This interview is no more no less than a public figure (MM) giving visibility to a platform. Nobody represented this interaction as Journalism.
