I'm fatigued but I'm still going to do this. Because Mugxit trolls can't shut up about Frogmore. This is a thread of things that are an actual waste on Brit taxpayers money:

When funding hate tabloids, it is a huge waste of taxpayers money. Scapegoating #MeghanMarkle won't change that the Daily Mail and Sun are racist tabloid garbage

1st pic is for 11th in line. 2nd pic is an extract saying it's gifted to the Wessexes

3rd pic is for 6th in line. Frogmore cottage that looks like servant quarters in comparison

So which is waste of taxpayers money? Scapegoating #MeghanMarkle

I don't hate anyone. Actually, I liked Meghan at first and was excited Harry had finally found the one woman who loved him.

But, then this...
Eye-opening narcissistic treatment of Harry. #Megxit Meghan Markle literally pushes Prince Harry aside. bit.ly/2W1RLaZ
#MeghanMarkle & #PrinceHarry stunned people, sharing they were expecting at Princess Eugenie's wedding.

FACT: Meghan Markle met, dined and socialised with heads of governments, world leaders and famous people, travelled on private jets, wore expensive designer clothes, shoes and jewellery, did serious charity work, wrote articles and travelled the world BEFORE she met Prince Harry.
She had millions of pounds, earned in her own right. There was an abundance of evidence to support all this, including print media, photographs, videos and verbal testimonies. Most of this could have been uncovered with a simple Google search. #Meghan #PrinceHarry #MeghanandHarry
What did the British media and their sources in the royal palaces do? For some strange reason (we know why), they decided to create a completely false and derogatory narrative about #Meghan. #HarryandMeghan

The US would never have been asked to pay for #HarryandMeghan’s security. It’s not their responsibility. But this tweet shows what invidious position the couple are are now in, having decided to leave the UK and move to America.
To clarify, when members of the royal family are invited to visit a foreign state on an official working trip, then security is provided by the host nation (at cost to themselves) - just as it is provided by the UK when a foreign dignitary visits.
It’s Harry and Meghan’s decision to base themselves in the US as private citizens permanently that is problematic for the British government. Should the hard-pressed Met Police be forced to protect them at the cost of millions of pounds a year?

Delighted to attend the #DuchessofSussex #MeghanMarkle ‘s final engagement Friday in Dagenham at the Robert Clack Upper School on Friday March 6th ahead of International Women’s Day (IWD) tomorrow Here the Duchess meets with students learning about female poets #HarryandMeghan
And a lighter moment from Head boy in Dagenham telling Meghan “She really is beautiful, innit”
Meghan told students “ “No matter how small you might feel, how low you may feel on the ladder or the totem pole, no matter what color you are, no matter what gender you are—you have a voice, and you certainly have the right to speak up for what is right."

“With two of The Firm’s glitteriest global superstars ostensibly opting out, the royal brand finds itself in shambles.” vanityfair.com/style/2020/02/…
“Queen Elizabeth II and company traffic in the presumption of magic and majesty—an assurance that, divinely and by birth, they are superior. Commoners are supposed to clamor at their gates, not marry in and then make a U-turn for Canada.”
“The monarchy already feels drearier w/o #HarryAndMeghan, who infused the whole operation with Big Celebrity Energy. The Sussexes had an estimated 1.9B viewers in their thrall at their royal wedding: Harry bit his bearded lower lip...in what became a much-memed moment.”

At first glance this appears to be about a prince, but the real story of #HarryandMeghan is about our own reactions. Rarcism, sexism, modernity, equality...

We could have told this story a different way, and the outcomes would have been transformative. So why didn't we?

If someone wrote Cinderella’s tale today, her character might not wait around for a prince to come and save her. She would, instead, be given a career and aspire to financial independence.
In the #MeToo era if Sleeping Beauty woke up with a kiss that she did not consent to, we'd call it assault, not a fairytale. We've yet to reframe these stories for a modern era, because it's hard to escape the trap of outdated values if we keep telling ourselves obsolete stories.

Harry and Meghan 'plan to launch film production company' #Canada #CDNFilm #CDNHistory #HarryandMeghan could make an enormous contribution to Canada if they use their fame to tell the world about the events & personalities that shaped Canada. metro.co.uk/2020/01/20/har… via @MetroUK

MUST READ: I’ve read a lot of articles. This is the best of them. #BestRoyalReads

#HarryAndMeghan’s decision to quit senior royal life & spend time outside of the UK isn’t a symbol of defeat: It’s an act of self-respect & self-preservation.” buzzfeednews.com/article/sandir…
“It is a tenacious institution. But by not enforcing or understanding the need to protect Meghan from vicious, racist press coverage in a more deliberate way, they are losing her & what she had to offer: a new, modern, more progressive image to associate with the monarchy“
“And Ono has become the namesake of a tired, untrue trope that suggests women are often a (if not the) problem, seducing and bewitching men into misfortune and bad decisions. The so-called Yoko Effect is a fallacy, not an actual phenomenon.”

There’s been a suggestion that this is #HarryAndMeghan’s Panorama moment or this is the biggest betrayal since the abdication. Like most of the hyperbole that surrounds this couple it’s a mendacious attempt to convince you that they’re breaking the royal rule book. 1/
I can’t speak to what’s gone on behind palace doors. I’m just connecting the dots like all of you. But I can talk abt the public face that H&M have shown throughout their relationship. It’s one of strength,courage, grace, & a generosity that wasn’t returned in kind (publicly). 2/
Blackamoor broach. She said nothing. Terrorist cookbook. Not a word. The degree wife. Silence. Vulgar. Taking the high road. Difficult Duchess. Work through it. Avocado kingpin. Keep it moving. Knife-wielding trailer trash. Change the channel. Danny Baker. O-K. 3/

A general warning on this day of #HarryandMeghan fuss: take everything you read that comes from the UK national press with a pinch of salt. They are not impartial or honest observers in this; they are determined to break this royal marriage to a woman of colour... (Thread)
We are told that the couple refuses to accept legitimate scrutiny, but what they have faced has not been legitimate. It has been a sustained campaign of vilification routinely relying on innuendo and falsehood and often laced with racism...
We are also led to believe that rough stuff from the UK press is only to be expected, and it's part of the royal job to accept it. Don't believe it. Real journalism isn't about dishing out rough stuff. It's about truth and fairness. No journalist anywhere should be asserting...

1/ It appears that #HarryandMeghan are forgoing their income from the Sovereign Grant, but will continue to receive income from the Duchy of Cornwall. Although Charles holds the Duchy personally - the phrase "financial independence from the monarchy" is doing a lot of work here.
2/ As #HarryandMeghan say here - sussexroyal.com/funding/ the funding from the Sovereign Grant only covered 5% of the costs of their office, the rest comes from the Duchy of Cornwall.
3/ It appears that they are forgoing that 5% to obtain greater freedom to operate as they please and to control more tightly how they work with the media, probably to use social media more, and perhaps more initiatives such as the Duchess's Vogue edition sussexroyal.com/media/

1/3 This week I attended the opening of the #Mandela centenary exhibition.

In a short speech, Lord Hain thanked one of the sponsors, Moti Group, twice.

According to @mailandguardian Lord Hain is
employed by them "in part to improve their poor reputation" mg.co.za/article/2018-0…
2/3 Moti Group is a mining & property
company that's been subject to some controversy. It allegedly has links to
Zimbabwean officials implicated in human rights violations & in 2017,
Interpol issued an international arrest warrant for the company's chair mg.co.za/article/2018-0…
3/5 Journalist @simonallison writes:

"There is no suggestion that the royals were aware of or intended to
endorse the Moti Group’s controversial business practises; or the group’s links
to senior Zimbabwean officials that have been implicated in serious human
rights violations."
