You've been Meghan Markled! That's the new verb in the Urban Dictionary - and it means ruthlessly dumped
Mail on Sunday columnist Piers Morgan became pally with Meghan after meeting her when she was an actress on legal drama Suits but he too found himself dropped by the royal.
He said: ‘As someone who has actually been Meghan Markled by Meghan Markle, I feel great empathy with anyone who gets Markled in life.
Yebbut you're Piers Morgan.

I wish Harry had never met this woman

In the unlikely event that Harry knows of your existence, he'd possibly wish your parents had never met.

And predictably, the worst-rated.
The bullying and vicious comments coming from adults commenting are frankly embarrassing. You need to take a good look at yourself if you have this strong an opinion on someone who you do not know.

Fuck me. What a nation of grownups.

Could be in the 'Ashamed to be English' thread.

(This is The Sun, rather than the Mail, vs Meghan & Harry)

Tabloid who's notorious for their obsessive stalking of the Royals pretends they don't care about the birth (because they weren't given inside info).

I doubt The Sun's Jane Moore is really on anybodies radar, but rest assured, she's an utter cunt like the rest of the columnists.

Here she is desperately trying to use the lingo to belatedly appeal to the internet shitlords:
But being Hollywood-style “woke” means you can’t just quietly get on with it and let your actions speak for themselves.

No, you have to make grand declarations about your right-on credentials, such as “climate change is a very important issue” or “racism is abhorrent” as if, by not making such virtue-signalling statements, the rest of us disagree and need to be enlightened.

JANE MOORE Meghan Markle and Prince Harry misled us over birth – why should we believe anything they say in the future?

SO what was all that about then?

A couple of weeks ago, that most “woke” of royal couples, Meghan and Harry, made a self-important statement to say there would be no statement about the forthcoming birth of the 48 squillionth in line to the throne.

The nation stopped what they were doing for a moment, muttered “Yer what?” then gave a collective shrug and carried on trying to pay the bills.

Then came yesterday’s weird stage management of what could have been a simple “They’ve had a healthy baby boy” statement made at a time that suited them.

Instead, at 2pm, Buckingham Palace announced that the Duchess of Sussex was “in labour” then, 40 minutes later, followed it up with the news that it was a 7lb 3oz boy who, it later transpired, had arrived in the world in the early hours of that morning.

So why the smoke and mirrors nonsense? It begs the question: If they put out misinformation about something so innocent, why should we believe what they say in any future statements?

As the old saying goes, “Don’t start drama and then say you hate drama”.

Prince Harry has a special place in our hearts for many reasons, but particularly because he lost his mother at such a young age and was forced by royal duty to walk behind her coffin in full view of the world — a move that, today, seems even more unthinkable than it did then.

So it’s understandable that he wanted to keep that most private of moments — the birth of his first child — out of the public gaze for a few precious hours. Fair enough.

Equally, no one was much bothered whether or not Meghan came out on the steps of a hospital 20 seconds after giving birth. Each to their own and all that.

But being Hollywood-style “woke” means you can’t just quietly get on with it and let your actions speak for themselves.

No, you have to make grand declarations about your right-on credentials, such as “climate change is a very important issue” or “racism is abhorrent” as if, by not making such virtue-signalling statements, the rest of us disagree and need to be enlightened.

And so, rather than just announcing the birth when it suited them, they issued a rather pompous and bewildering press release to tell us in advance that they wanted to “keep the plans around the arrival of their baby private”.

As if the Press and public were constantly banging on the door of their easily accessible, terraced house, demanding to know if little Wayne or Waynetta had arrived yet.

This push-back, following as it did the very public ghosting of Meghan’s father Thomas, risked alienating those members of the public with a genuine fondness for the prince and his new wife.

But happily, all the nonsense was forgotten the moment Harry bounded in to the stables area at Windsor Castle, where a select few of the world’s media were assembled.

As the horses behind him gazed disinterestedly into the middle distance, his obvious delight at becoming a father was written all over his face.

This was the Labrador puppy-esque Harry of old, and thanks to his excellent “How women do that is beyond comprehension” remark, he’s now firmly reinstated as the uncomplicated, cheeky chappie we all have a soft spot for.

So, a heartfelt congratulations to the Duke and Duchess of Sussex on the birth of their first child.

And moving forward, perhaps a little less of the stage-management and self-important virtue-signalling would be wise.

In other words, take a leaf out of our admirable Queen’s book and just show us what you’re made of, rather than tell.

So... what will they make of Archie Harrison?

Anderson Shelter, anyone...?


Archie Harrison who ran the watch repair stall down the pioneer market?
To me it's a timeless everyman name.
Could easily be the protagonist in some '60s kitchen sink drama.


Gotta say I was hoping for 'Barack'.
