Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have touched down in Canada to start production on a new Lifetime movie about their love affair — or at least the actors playing them have. The actors playing the couple in “Harry & Meghan: The Royal…
Megan Markle is fitting in across the pond right down to her plaid when it comes to accompanying Prince Harry on royal duty. The couple’s in Edinburgh, Scotland Tuesday and shook hands with locals after being greeted by the Royal Regiment of…
Meghan Markle is not about the late some ignorant and cruel racists get her down.
Far from it, in fact.
On the heels of an elected official official being a stupid and awful A-Hole when it comes to Markle marrying Prince Harry, the future Royal spent time in Scotland this week.
According to various outlets, the beloved twosome arrived around lunch time yesterday to the Esplanade outside Edinburgh Castle, where they were welcomed to the city by the Royal Marines Scotland Band.
Markle, meanwhile, was asked a very important question by a native of this region, as someone named Tom Martin wanted to know if the ex-actress had her bachelorette party planned.
“We asked them what they were doing for their stag and hen dos,” Martin told People Magazine, adding:
“Meghan said, ‘I’m not sure – it’s sorted but it will be fun.”
It’s sorted, huh?
Sounds like Markle already has some British vernacular down.
Either that, or she’s been watching a lot of Harry Potter of late.
Many Internet users are likely wondering just who will be invited to Markle’s big party, and also what her definition of “fun” is exactly.
The star does have sort of a wild past, having posted in scantily-clad outfits often over the years.
In the case of this trip, however, the beloved couple had fun by hanging out with the mascot of the Royal Regiment of Scotland, a Shetland pony named Cruachan.
They had a chance to pet the horse in adorable footage actually captured by Kensington Palace.
Harry, for his part, also has a bit of a crazy past.
There are plenty of photos of him online that feature the Prince partying and drinking; nothing too out of the ordinary and certainly nothing illegal.
He remained mum on his stag party plans, however, Martin told People, simply relaying to the publication:
“I’m sure William’s got something up his sleeve,” Martin said.
Onlookers in Scotland said last night and this morning that Markle was a natural while interacting with them.
She’s getting more and more used to being on the public stage, joking with one woman how she loved the color of her nails and telling another that she really liked her purse.
The arrival of Markle and Harry kicked off a day of pre-Valentine’s events in the Scottish capital.
Once inside the castle, the celebrities will observe the firing of the One O’Clock Gun, a tradition that began in 1861.
After visiting this legendary castle, Harry and Meghan will head over to Edinburgh’s New Town to visit Social Bite, a café that gives out food and hot drinks to the homeless.
Pretty cool, huh?
Also, for their final event of the day, the engaged pair will attend a reception at the Palace of Holyroodhouse to celebrate youth achievements in Scotland’s Year of Young People 2018.
Finally, one more note about their wedding, which is scheduled for May 19, 2018.
Sources tell Entertainment Tonight that Markle wants Ed Sheeran to perform at the reception.
How cool would that be?!?
In just three months, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry will be married, and the royal family will have another new member.
In many obvious ways, of course, Meghan differs from her predecessors and future in-laws.
She’s American; she’s divorced; she’s an actress, and she’s black.
Despite the fact that we’re living in an age in which billionaires are launching cars into space for fun, the planet is still populated by troglodytes, so that last fact is throwing the global moron elite for a loop.
Speaking of troglodytes (we promise we’ll get back to Meghan momentarily), you may have heard about Cheddar Man, the oldest skeleton ever discovered in the UK, who researchers now believe had dark skin.
This reminder that human life originated in Africa had outraged some very vocal bigots, including alt-right GOP congressional candidate Paul Nehlen, who decided to put his racism on display over the weekend.
Nehlen is looking to unseat Speaker of the House Paul Ryan, and it seems he thought getting permanently suspended from Twitter would be a good way to kick off his campaign.
Over the weekend, Nehlen tweeted an image in which Meghan’s face was superimposed over that of the reconstructed Cheddar Man.
Apparently, he thought this was some sort of droll commentary on race and modern Britain.
Not surprisingly, the entire planet disagreed.
Meghan’s former Suits co-star Patrick J. Adams fired off a number of scathing tweets, in which he referred to Nehlen as “a sad and sick man with no sense of shame or class.”
“Get a life,” Adams tweeted.
“And don’t go anywhere near MM – she’s got more power, strength, honour and compassion in her fingernail than you’ll ever know in this lifetime. Way above your weight class.”
It seems the head honchos at Twitter agreed with Adams’ assessment, as Nehlen has been permanently booted from the popular social media platform:
“While we normally do not comment on individual accounts, I can confirm that we have permanently suspended this account for repeated violations of our terms of service,” a statement from the site reads.
Sadly, banning one racist troll from Twitter is like putting a Band-Aid on a bullet wound, and Meghan probably has more of this sort of treatment in store.
This has been your Monday reminder that everything is terrible. Enjoy the rest of your week!
We’re just over three months away from the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.
As expected, royal obsessives the world over are already giddy with anticipation.
Sadly, just as unsurprising is the fact that opportunists and con artists are coming out of the wood work hoping to exploit Meghan in her remaining days as a civilian.
And some of them are members of her immediate family.
It all started when Meghan’s half-sister, Samantha Grant, threatened to publish a tell-all.
Amazingly, it looks like she managed to land a publisher, but it sounds like the book won’t be loaded with the bombshell revelations the public is hoping for.
Meghan and Samantha reportedly haven’t had any contact with one in well over a decade, and sources say they weren’t close with one another for several years before that.
So unless you’re hankering for some insights into Meg’s high school study habits, the book probably won’t do much for you.
Just last month, the sketchy sibling started going by Samantha Markle and managed to score a deal with TLC to produce a special about Meghan.
And now it seems she’s not the only member of the Markle clan who’s looking to line their pockets.
Apparently, Meghan also has a half-brother named Tom Markle Jr.
In addition to having a name that sounds like an anagram for a Harry Potter villain, Tom is apparently even more shady than Samantha.
Rather than threatening to share Meghan’s secrets with the world, he took the more direct route of asking Meg for money for a personal security detail, and then publicly calling her out for abandoning her family when she refused.
In a recent interview with In Touch, Tommy Marks shared the contents of the email he received from Meghan’s lawyers that basically told him to go do his panhandling elsewhere.
“My lawyer had a phone meeting with her lawyer, and he emailed me some of [Meghan’s] direct words. She said, ‘That’s distant family and I don’t know those people,'” Tom told the tabloid.
“That’s pretty harsh,” he adds calling the email “a slap in the face” and “below the belt.”
“I spent a lot of time with her growing up,” Tom says.
In the emails, Tom asks Meghan and Buckingham Palace officials to “take some action to protect [him],” which apparently meant not only security services but protection from what he claims are inaccurate media reports.
“There was a time where people were following me around at work, taking pictures and posting horrible stories about me and my family saying I’m a white supremacist, a drug addict and a dealer, all this crap that just isn’t true,” Tom tells In Touch.
“My attorney was reaching out to her people and the palace to basically [help us] try to get a retraction for all these false stories in [countries] where there are different laws.”
Reps for Harry were apparently more polite than Meghan’s lawyers, telling Tom, “We are so sorry to hear you have been having a tough time with the media.”
Of course, they still didn’t offer him any sort of assistance with the problem.
We’re assuming Meghan is currently being trained in how to tell someone to shove off using proper royal decorum.
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are about to hit yet a major milestone.
Yes, they’re engaged. Yes, they’ve had intercourse. Yes, Markle has met nearly every member of the Royal Family.
But the big one is on tap next week…
… Markle and her fiance will celebrate their first Valentine’s Day as a betrothed couple!
It really doesn’t get much more significant than that, at least not as far it goes for people into commercial holidays pushed by Hallmark and other companies.
So, what does the beloved couple have planned for this special occasion?
Kensington Palace announced on Tuesday that they’re headed to Scotland.
The trip to Edinburgh will kick off on February 13 and include a visit the historic Edinburgh Castle, along with a trip to a youth cafe run by Social Bite.
This is an organization that tackles homelessness, which is appropriate because Meghan and her man initially bonded over their many charitable endeavors.
And this is a cause especially close to Harry’s heart.
The two will then attend a reception celebrating youth achievement to mark Scottish Year of Young People at the Palace of Holyroodhouse.
Markle and Harry are getting married on May 19 in London.
We’ve already heard that Meghan may break from many traditions at the ceremony, but she said in the past that being all romantic on February 14 is on tradition she keeps up with religiously.
And not even just when she’s in a relationship.
“I think you need to cook that beautiful dinner even when it’s just you, wear your favorite outfit, buy yourself some flowers, and celebrate the self love that often gets muddled when we focus on what we don’t have,” the actress wrote in 2016 via her blog The Tig.
She added at the time:
“This Valentine’s Day I will be with friends, running amok through the streets of New York, likely imbibing some cocktail that’s oddly pink, and jumping over icy mounds in my new shoes through the salted snowy streets of the West Village.”
Seriously, how great is it that this woman is about to be a member of the Royal Family?!?
Sadly, we don’t hear much from Markle these days because she’s deleted all of her social media accounts.
We’d have to imagine this was a requirement for marrying into what may be the most famous family on the planet. (No offense, Kardashians. Okay…maybe some offense.)
“Valentine’s Day is special wherever you happen to find yourself,” she also blogged a couple years ago, adding:
“And in terms of gifts, be it breakfast in bed, a sweet love note, or a single flower, it really is the thought that counts.”
Hear that, Harry?
No pressure at all, man!
Just get to cooking and to writing and maybe to some lovemaking and you’ll be fine.
We’re less than four months away from Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s wedding, and royal obsessives are already giddy with the anticipation of waking up at 4 am to watch two strangers say “I do.”
As with all royal matters, the details of the planning process are being kept under lock and key, but it’s safe to say that Harry and Meghan’s reception will be as non-traditional as their relationship.
In all likelihood, the ceremony will bow to custom, but it seems that after the vows are exchanged, Meghan is planning to let her hair down.
(Not literally, of course. Her updo will probably cost more than your car.)
We’ve already learned of various ways in which Meghan and Harry are planning to buck tradition.
For example, the couple reportedly plans to invite Cressida Bonas, one of Harry’s most high-profile exes, to the ceremony.
Not a big deal for most of us, but the sort of thing that results in widespread pearl-clutching in royal circles.
But Cressida’s presence will probably go mostly unnoticed by the massive international TV audience.
What reportedly has royal handlers far more concerned is the possibility that Meghan might … speak at her own wedding!
Yes, insiders say the actress is planning to give a toast in which she’ll thank all those who have helped ease her transition from peasant to royal.
She’ll apparently close by addressing Harry in an “affectionate” fashion.
Since royals are basically forbidden to display any sort of emotion in public, this is apparently a big deal.
According to tradition, men are allowed to give toasts at royal weddings, but women are just supposed to sit there and look pretty.
“Historically at a royal wedding reception, the bride’s father would speak on her behalf, and the other speeches are reserved for the groom and the best man,” wedding etiquette expert Amber Harrison tells Huffington Post.
Harrison adds that if she does decide to give a speech, Meghan will be “breaking centuries of royal tradition.”
“It is more common for an American bride to give a toast or make a speech at her wedding reception,” says Anne Chertoff, another wedding specialist.
“Since Meghan is an American it’s highly likely that she may make a toast or speech at her wedding reception, which will widely be received in a positive and wonderful way.”
We don’t know what’s more shocking – that the royals still observe such an outdated tradition or that multiple people identify as professional wedding experts.
We get the feeling that you’ll be hearing a lot from these “specialists” in the months to come.
In just a few short months, Meghan Markle will marry Prince Harry in front of a massive international TV audience.
The 36-year-old former actress is the envy of millions of women these days, but the road to royalty wasn't an easy one for Ms. Markle.
She's spent most of her adult life paying her dues in Hollywood, which meant taking on a few projects she'd probably prefer to forget.
Fortunately for us, some of those acting and modeling gigs yielded pics that have also made Harry the envy of millions of men.
Check out the gallery below for some of Meg's career highlights.

We’re just months away from the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, and the royal couple is no doubt dealing with all the little hiccups and headaches that comes with planning such a massive ceremony.
There’s the guest list, the menu, the bridesmaid dresses, and of course, the thirsty-ass exes trying to steal the bride’s shine.
That’s a photo that Harry’s former girlfriend Cressida Bonas posted on Instagram this week, and despite what the comments section seems to think, it has nothing to do with Meghan.
As you can see, Cressida’s not rocking much in the way of actual clothing.
“By the wonderful Mike Figgis @figgismike,” she captioned the photo, giving credit to the filmmaker best known for directing 1995’s Leaving Las Vegas.
So clearly, “washed-out and sorta sad-looking” is Mr. Figgis’ aesthetic.
That’s not a knock against Cressida, who’s a gorgeous woman, but rather against Figgis for having her dress like a sullen teen with a Hot Topic gift card and generally going for a “dead-eyed fentanyl chic” aesthetic.
Cressida and Harry broke up back in 2014.
The split was reportedly amicable, and she’s all but faded from the British tabloid headlines in the years since.
However, she’s back in the news these days, thanks to rumors that Cressida might be invited to Harry and Meghan’s wedding.
Yes, Harry and Cressida have reportedly remained friendly, and sources say Meg is totally cool with allowing Bonas to be in attendance on her big day.
But that hasn’t stopped random online trolls from reading way too much into this pic and posting some truly disgusting comments on Cressida’s pic:
“Highly doubt [Meghan] is jealous of a used mattress, c-m dumpster! Cressida dumped Harry, she isn’t the gold digger,” wrote one fan.
“The beautiful Meghan is the only one” commented another.
Yes, despite the fact that Harry and Cressida have been broken up for nearly four years and there’s no indication that Bonas and Markle are in any sort of competition, haters continue to pit them against each other.
It’s stuff like this, and the sausage party that is the list of 2018 Grammy winners, and … well pretty much all of the news to come out of Hollywood in the past six months that reminds you that society still has a long, long way to go in terms of its treatment of women.
Of course, it’s not like Cressida or Meghan needed to be reminded.
Both have been targets of the notoriously brutal British tabloid press at various times, which means they’re all too aware of how they’re regarded by certain male-dominated by the publications.
We know the royal family is an archaic institution, but that doesn’t mean the media outlets who cover it can’t get with the times.
Meghan Markle’s on her way to joining the Royal Family, but before that, she had her sights set on becoming queen … of the lollipop biz. According to docs obtained by TMZ … Meghan and a friend filed trademark paperwork back in 2012 for the term…
