Prince Harry and Meghan involved in stealthy palace take down

The royal family has removed a historic document relating to the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, and it’s part of a much bigger puzzle.

Something strange is happening at Buckingham Palace; and it seems that someone has leaned on the delete button on the official real site.

In the immortally ignorant words of Australia’s most famous fish and chip shop: Please explain?

Why was a key part of the long and often tortuous history of Prince Harry and Meghan, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, mysteriously removed from royal.uk?

The object in question is an almost eight-year-old declaration, the most important piece of paper Harry has probably had in his hands since he filled out the application to join Boujis.

The year: 2016.

The trousers: low.

Prince Harry: he had a new girlfriend.

Specifically, October 31st, that of Great Britain Daily express revealed the exclusive story of the former army captain dating Clothes protagonist Meghan Markle.

At that point the whole of the United Kingdom said ‘huh!’, pleasantly surprised to discover that Harry had the sense and taste to look beyond the predictable list of high-ranking blondes to find his new lover.

This was a woman with a good qualification, a successful career and a vision of the world that went beyond Battersea Bridge. Hurray!

Then, just a week later, the euphoria and excitement that the prince had found himself a girlfriend coalesced, with Harry issuing a stunning and unprecedented statement denouncing “the wave of abuse and harassment ” that Meghan had faced along with “sexism and racism”. ” of the reaction to the news of their relationship.

On the day it came out, November 8, it was published online in the “Press Releases” section of the official royal website, royal.uk.

Now it’s gone.

And not only that, but several other press releases from that period, regarding the Duke, appear to have been deleted.

While a search in the section still returns a long list of entries, clicking on the title takes users only to a generic page with items tagged with the generic “Sussex” including, for example,

Queen Camilla recently visited an East Sussex literary festival.

Where did Harry’s statements go? And why was his famous line in the sand and gauntlet statement about Meghan, among other articles, removed from the palace?

This would not appear to be a recent change compared to, for example, that 2016 statement

he probably retired in December last year, according to investigations carried out by NewsweekIt’s Jack Royston.

And this deletion of the November 2016 statement comes after the royal family has already repeatedly reduced, if not eliminated, the Sussexes’ presence on the royal website.

Last August, Harry and Meghan’s HRHs were removed from their official entries, and in March of this year, the Duke and Duchess’ individual, detailed biographies, which totaled more than 4,000 words, were combined and drastically reduced at 577 scattered words.

The palace has yet to comment on this latest curious change to the website, however, in truth, I ask you: their treatment towards the Sussexes, who have long taken refuge in California to escape the clutches of Crown Inc, could be colder ?

There may not be a Gorbachev-like figure lurking in the wings or the threat of a nuclear winter, but are we facing a new Cold War here?

When Harry arrived on the doorstep of his father, King Charles, reportedly uninvited in February, following the announcement of Her Majesty’s cancer, he was allegedly given a paltry 30 minutes with him and with no invitation offered to head north, to Sandringham, for some time alone. .

In early May, Harry returned to the UK for a memorial service in St Paul’s to celebrate 10 years of his hugely successful Invictus Games, and was offered the use of a royal residence by the King.

While we don’t know what property was made available to the prince-turned-television producer, it was a property that, according to the Telegraphit has “public entry and exit points and no police protection”, which sounds more like a place of lesser grace and favor rather than Kensington Palace, Clarence House or St James’s Palace.

Nor are he and Meghan likely to soon reunite their young children, Prince Archie and Princess Lilibet, to teach them the, err, “delights” of a Highland summer, with a friend of the King and Queen telling the Daily Beast , “The idea of ​​Harry and the kids coming down to Balmoral this summer is wishful thinking. It’s all very sad.”

It’s the very word that keeps running through my head. It’s all so damn sad.

Last January, when Harry stepped out for his whirlwind series of television interviews in a blue jumper to promote Spare, he made it clear what he wanted to achieve.

“I would like my dad back, I would like my brother back,” she told ITV’s Tom Bradby.

Disappointment, your name is Sussex, at least on the family front.

Not only does the Duke of Sussex definitely not have his family back, but they seem to keep finding new ways to push him even further away, to the furthest fringes of the royal universe.

Nearly 18 months after that “backward” comment, the King’s reaction to his son’s forays into telling the truth has been extreme.

The keys to Frogmore Cottage were almost knocked out of his hands.

A third row seat at his coronation.

His offer in February to return to the UK to help out as the king and Kate, Princess of Wales, battled cancer was bluntly and immediately rejected.

(Was there any mirthless laughter down the phone line when the offer was made? I’ll let you decide.)

Now we have this situation with the Sussexes and the royal website. As Sherlock Holmes might have said, the game is afoot: could someone please just figure out exactly what the game might be?
