Goodness, that man sure makes the Queen look even shorter!

Harry to Meghan, "I warned you, don't you dare cause a scene" and to himself, who are you?


That is some look Harry is giving to Meghan for whatever reason.  I may have to save this one.  I cannot wait to see what happens once this month is behind us.

I thought the same thing! Funny how that 'we're so in love' honeymoon look they've been wearing is gone from this picture, LOL!

Poor Harry looks so unhappy in both photos to me, I feel bad for him, but he made a choice......

Re: Royal Family at Commonwealth Service

From what I've been reading, Sophie & Edward have really stepped up in helping the Queen with 'royal appearances', so kudos to them!

 

At her age (and Prince Phillip's age), I would bet that she wishes she could slow down.

Re: Royal Family at Commonwealth Service

@Pearlee I'm curious. How do you personally know that much about William and his being "insincerely friendly" toward his brother? Are you close friends? Just wondering! Such insight!

Re: Royal Family at Commonwealth Service

@KingstonsMom   I, too,  feel sorry for  Harry in that this trip home - after being in his new venture for  a few weeks, has shown him what he has given up especially the protection of his family.

 

 Harry has always needed people there for him   - particularly his brother - always in the background but always available to him  - now it is Meghan hence all the public hand holding, patting on the back and arm hanging on to - hope this works for him in the future.  

 

There have been lots of photos with him beaming but also some where he is looking truly sad not publicised so much.  Yes it is sad for Harry.

There's a reason why tabloid publications do so well. Sad

Re: Royal Family at Commonwealth Service

@KingstonsMom  The man the Queen is speaking to is international boxing champion and Olympic gold medallist Anthony Joshua who delivered a reflection at the service. Standing at 6ft 6in tall, Joshua towered over the diminutive monarch during their brief conversation.

I so agree, all of the grinning and staring adoringly at each other, just seemed to be made for photo ops to me, it just looked so 'forced'.

 

Harry's military service was very important to him and really helped him grow out of his 'wild child' days, running around a Vegas hotel room naked, while someone recorded it on video.

 

I think he's truly sad to lose his some of his military affiliations.
