If Britain ever becomes a republic, the revolution might very well begin in the online comments sections beneath articles about the Windsors. A wit commenting in the Guardian suggested if Britain had to have a non-elected head of state, a Golden retriever would make an excellent substitute, because they love shaking hands and don’t have expensive hobbies like flying helicopters. The Daily Mail Online recently posted an article about Prince Harry’s bachelor party with the 32-word headline: “Is Harry planning a stag do on the slopes? Royal protection officers are ‘spotted scoping out locations’ in exclusive Swiss ski resort – and they could stay in Prince Andrew’s £13m chalet”
In the comments section, a regular named “Harriet” segued between railing on Prince Harry and his fiancee Meghan Markle and greeting her many online pals. The commenter “OnYourMark1” alluded to a pertinent point–at a time when record numbers of homeless people are sleeping on Britain’s streets and the National Health Service is in crisis, British taxpayers coughed up for a recce trip to Verbier for Prince Harry’s bodyguards.
Harriet, Toronto, Canada: Blame it on the combo of Ginger and NutMeg. I adore Harry, but, he has lost his bl00dy mind, as much as I hate to say it, I am going off him too. Hopefully, he snaps out of it before it’s too late, he is making a complete a$s out of himself, and it’s sad.
Korova Milk Bar, Somewhere, United Kingdom: Harriet! You’re back! I’ve missed your comments. 🙂
rosie1 woking, United Kingdom: Welcome back Harriet I wondered where you’ve been …..missed your comments!
Harriet, Toronto, Canada: Thanks Rosie and Korova ! I was on holidays before returning back to London. You know this marriage is bad news when the Leicester Square tat shops aren’t even selling naff wedding merchandise.What a disaster, five years tops, if this wedding even still happens. All the best for 2018, H. x
Alexandra, West Vancouver Hampshire, United Kingdom: Welcome Back Harriet … hugs to B x
Louisa, London, United Kingdom: Delighted to see Harriet back! Harriet called this woman out long before anyone had the slightest idea about her. Harriet said the wedding wouldn’t happen, and with all that has come out (I’m sure there’s much more buried) I can see why Harriet would have thought so – she just hadn’t factored in Harry’s breath-taking stupidity and bl00dy-mindedness.
Harriet, Toronto, Canada: Thanks Louisa, all the best to you for 2018. I may be wrong, but I still cannot see it happening. There is something very wrong with this whole scenario. Harry must be in lust, after dealing with her, day in and day out, he should wake up, hopefully before the wedding. Had they lived on the same continent and he was stuck with her 24/7, there wouldn’t be an engagement. Either way, it all end in tears. All the best, Harriet.xx
OnYourMark1, Victoria, Canada: nice to see you back Harriet – hope it was a lovely vacate (I trust no paid security like Harry’s upcoming do?
