    Meghan Markle's father said Monday that his new son-in-law Prince Harry told him not to immediately write off President Trump. "I was complaining I didn’t like Donald Trump. He (Prince Harry) said, 'Give Donald Trump a chance,'” Thomas Markle told ITV’s "Good Morning Britain." "I sort of disagreed with that," added Markle, whose daughter, American actress Meghan Markle, tied the knot with the sixth in line to the British throne last month. "But I still like Harry." “That was his politics. I have my politics,” Markle, 73, told the British morning show. “We had conversations about it.” Asked if he...

    Asked what Harry thought about Brexit, Markle said: “He said he was open to it. He didn’t know one way or another, he was just saying he had to be open to it, and see how it went. That’s pretty much what’s his attitude....” He added: “It was just a loose conversation about something we have to try. There was no real commitment to it … I think he was open to the experiment.” “I’ve always have a bad attitude about Donald Trump and that’s never going to change,” Markle said. “My God, I’ve got to apologise to the rest...

    "Save my heroes from suicide." Prince Harry has raised serious concerns about the number of British soldiers committing suicide after returning from Iraq and Afghanistan. The Prince confided his fears about a recent surge in suspected suicides in a private letter to a decorated former war hero. His intervention comes as an investigation by The Mail on Sunday reveals veterans of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan are now taking their own lives at a faster rate than their comrades died on the battlefield. At least 12 veterans are feared to have killed themselves since the start of the year...
  • What Will Happen at the Next British Coronation?

    The Telegraph ^ | Charles Moore
    In 1953, even the famous Left-wing sociologist, Michael Young, wrote that the coronation represented “an act of national communion… a series of ritual affirmations of the moral values necessary to a well-governed and good society”. Whenever the next one happens, those words need to hold good once again. The greatest danger in the gap period will be from those who understand that the coronation service represents something much older than democracy and much deeper than secular, international “human rights”, and resent this fact. They will assail its undiluted Christianity, its mystical notion of kingship, its putting of whole nations under...
  • Could Constitutional Monarchies be Important Aids to Democracies?

    Recently, author and speechwriter Don Watson has questioned the impetus for Australia to become a republic. In the April edition of The Monthly, he wrote: In a world filling with tyrants, Queen Elizabeth and her descendants represent a sort of anti-tyranny. He goes on to note: Our democracy works imperfectly well, and it is hard to see how any of its practical imperfections would be remedied by going republican. In effect, the governor-general, who is appointed by the elected government, acts as a de facto ceremonial head of state, while we maintain the pretence that Elizabeth is the sovereign. Like...

    Britain's Kensington Palace has given details of the newly created Coat of Arms for the former Meghan Markle — an honor which is accorded by tradition to the nobility. The Coat of Arms for the Duchess of Sussex, as she is now formally known, includes symbols that invoke the former actress' background and look to her future. It features a blue background that represents the Pacific Ocean and golden rays of sunshine reminiscent of California, her home state in America. The shield includes three quills, representing the power of words.
  • Bishop Curry’s royal wedding sermon was admirable – but he left something out

    Catholic Herald ^ | 05/22/2018 | by Fr Alexander Lucie-Smith
    As I thought it might be, Bishop Michael Curry’s sermon at Saturday’s Royal Wedding was a cracker. It divided opinions, sure, but that is a better fate than being ignored or swiftly forgotten, as normally happens. Funnily enough, the sermon got the thumbs-up from the Guardian. But then as Brendan O’Neill observed, the sermon was, like the new Duchess, very political. Curry is “woke” when it comes to matters like gay marriage. I have not researched the matter, but I doubt there is a single issue on which he is not “progressive”; and though we do not know that much...

    The marriage of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry is anything but ordinary. Even among royal marriages it’s unique because Meghan is American – and, like many Americans, she is biracial. But while her race isn’t a issue, her nationality is – thanks to the U.S. tax code.Prince Harry, Meet the IRS American citizens like Markle, who was born in Los Angeles, must report their worldwide income to the IRS even while living abroad. (For more, see How to Pay Taxes If You're Overseas.) She will have to file U.S. tax returns and Foreign Bank Accounting Report (FBAR) forms, assuming she...

    A US bishop stole the show with his fiery address at Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's wedding. The Most Reverend Michael Curry has been praised for his passionate speech which touched upon slavery, the Old Testament and even quoted Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Many of social media were delighted to see the American reverend 'shake up' the traditional royal proceedings. The preacher also provoked a few chuckles in the chapel - and even Harry and Meghan couldn't help but giggle at one point.

    To be clear, I have zero interest in the Markle Sparkle. But a combination of creaky bones and allergies that have packed my sinus cavities with concrete got me up extra-early so I switched on the TV and between a choice of mass school shooting coverage and wringing of hands and a royal wedding I’ll take the royals. A royal wedding outside of Hollywood is a strange affair in the 21st century. Sort of an anachronism within an anachronism.  My only comment is that there hasn’t been so many people of colour at a British royal wedding since, well, ever....

    Every bride finds the final days in the run-up to her wedding rather fraught. It doesn’t matter how meticulous the planning has been, something always goes awry. That said, poor Meghan Markle seems to be having more than her fair share of pre-wedding stress. At a time when all she should be thinking about are last-minute finishing touches, she and Prince Harry are having to deal with a full-blown family crisis. At the time I write, it’s uncertain whether Meghan’s father — 73-year-old Thomas — will fly to the UK for Saturday’s royal wedding following revelations that he accepted money...

    MEGHAN Markle and Prince Harry are set to marry on May 19 in St George’s Chapel in Windsor Castle, and despite asking for charity donations instead of traditional gifts from most guests, the Queen is still expected to offer them an unbelievable present. It is anticipated that the Queen will gift the couple York Cottage on the Sandringham Estate in Norfolk. The Queen previously gifted the 10-bedroom Anmer Hall on the Sandringham Estate to the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, Birkhall to Prince Charles and Sunninghill Park to Prince Andrew.
