I don’t think she convinced him - i think the British press and Royal family forced them out with their racist and vitriolic behaviour and their not willing to risk the wellbeing of their child to satisfy a British public that constantly villifies them.👀

But OP, it doesn’t take away from your point that we’re allowed to set our expectations high for Men 😊🍷🍷

This guy believes his mother was literally and figuratively killed by the press. The Royal Family stripped his mother of her title in the divorce, which was unnecessary. And his grandmother SANCTIONED the marriage between his father and his decades long mistress come divorcee Parker-Bowles.

I’m sure he’s been wanting to take his money and bounce for awhile. Having a family of his own just gave him the motivation to change course. And you know what? Why not? Life is short. These people are indeed human, not gods. They deserve to live life on their terms just as much as anyone.

And for all you dimwits who are convinced they’re going to open a Sussex’ R Us and sell baby clothes, please google something anything about trademarks. Even if they have the intent to make salad dressing for charity like Paul Newman so be it. BUT if they hadn’t laid claim to those categories for trademark, those would be open to any random who wants to capitalize on their name and image.

For goodness sake, this lady just went through the biggest transitions in life - all within three years. Harry himself suffers depression. I applaud them for working to create a healthier environment for themselves and their child.

Um, hey everyone:
1. My lighthearted post about Meghan Markle was not an invitation to show off your internalized misogyny by bashing this woman (“she’s controlling”??? yikes!)
2. “She convinced him” was an exaggeration for comic effect, obviously they made this decision together, they seem like a very egalitarian couple

Thanks to all who enjoyed this for what it was, but the few of you with some real issues are making me even gladder the Sussexes did this - your kind of nonsense is exactly what they don’t need!

✌🏻

I get what you mean. Series of mediocre or bad experiences definitely makes me question my expectations which I believe are reasonable.

Sounds controlling. She knew what she married into, why try to immediately change it? Saddened for the growing divide between brothers.

I don’t think she convinced/pressured him. The way the press treats her definitely is an ugly experience for both of them that probably encouraged him, and maybe without her influence/status as an outsider he wouldn’t have taken this opportunity (having a spouse with ties to another country gives him an easier way out). But he is an equal player in this relationship- maybe the more dominant one, considering what she had to give up and go through just for him, with little room to compromise or ask questions. That said, I do agree with the sentiment of setting high expectations for the men in our lives!

Does it mean she’s coming back to the Suits and bringing her husband into the world of American soap operas? 😆

Eh, I can see this being a joint decision. Harry was a wild child for years before semi-calming down in recent years. He was deeply hurt from losing his mother the way it happened and wasn’t much for the rules of his life. Meghan has an American independent mindset. Stuffy British royalty rules were not going to be easy to comply with. She showed that she wasn’t going to conform early in the engagement and with choices in the marriage ceremonies.

It was only a matter of time before they both made this move. I’m sure they had been planning this for a while and waiting for a good time after baby Archie was born.

What was wrong and non conforming with the ceremony? It was different yes but the what we’d nonconformist?

All of you saying good for them and their mental health blah blah...no. They could shut the media out and work on themselves without this action. Instead they being in the media with their Instagram and website, and MM's whole publicity team.

This is about money. They can make more money with their social influence being financially independent. They can now get advertising dollars, sponsors, contracts. That will bring in way more than 30M. Hollywood has a lot of money.

Exactly, SM3! They want to continue to be affiliated with the RF (i.e keep their titles) and “earn a professional income” i.e cash in.

Agree. No one knows how it was decided. Something they both mutually wanted, something forced, etc. I wouldn’t make any assumptions and just take the fact that they’re leaving. At the end of the day as long as they’re happily living their lives and not harming anyone then I’m good for it.

For those of you who got into FAANG or other tech company as a dev (swe, DS, DevOps, etc...) How did you word/express your resume to show that you worked on an internal product/platform?

I feel like there's a lot of client facing dev roles or dev roles that rotate a lot of projects. I think real tech companies have a bias towards devs from consulting companies due to this... But I've personally been working on a long term platform at Deloitte.
