That’s some zinger…
Prince Harry and Meghan have once again broken with royal rules to tell voters to “reject hate speech” at the “most important election of our lifetime”. Filmed in the garden of their $14 million mansion in California, the
royal Santa Barbara couple said that while Prince Harry can’t vote, they will work to “reimagine the world around us” and “build worlds of compassion”. Guido can’t imagine the California-based millionaire couple will do much to swing votes in the rust-belt…
The new MP for Stoke-on-Trent North, Jonathan Gullis, has jumped upon Piers Morgan’s comments about Meghan Markle’s apparent reluctance to engage in Royal duties, with an offer surely too good to turn down. In a Daily Mail column yesterday, Piers Morgan had written that:
“Meghan wants to live the life of an A-list star off the back of her new royal fame, cherry-picking all the good stuff like luxury tours, movie premieres, charity galas and Hollywood parties.
But she doesn’t want to get her hands dirty opening a community hall on a wet Wednesday in Stoke-on-Trent. That’s for the little royal people, not a superstar princess like her.”
Sensing an opportunity for his constituency that was too good to miss, Gullis tweeted that Meghan was more than welcome to visit.
If the Duchess of Sussex ever wishes to visit, open up a community hall or get sausage roll from @WrightsFoodGrp in Stoke-on-Trent North, Kidsgrove and Talke (on a wet or dry day) please do visit.

When asked if the offer was serious, Gullis told Guido that “the Duchess of Sussex would also be most welcome to come visit the Mothertown of Burslem, have a tour of Chatterley Whitfield or open Kidsgrove Sports Centre once we reopen it next summer.” Go on Meghan, prove Piers wrong…
Mirror, mirror, on the wall, who has had the unfairest year of them all? According to 50% of Brits polled, Her Royal Highness Meghan Markle is this year’s most unfairly treated person. The barrage of media abuse and criticism aimed at the Duchess of Sussex has led her to top this year’s list of Unfairly Treated People.
The research was commissioned by online casino PlayOJO, who surveyed over 2,000 UK adults*, as well as working with a panel of media experts** across the world of entertainment, sport and politics. The results were pooled and analysed to reveal the UK’s celebs that have been put under the cosh in 2019.
The carefully selected list has revealed the Top 10 Unfairly Treated People of 2019:
The general public responded in-line with the political media expert, who shared the opinion that the Duchess of Sussex has had a rotter of a year: “Meghan’s received a rough time from Britain’s press this year, criticising her every move, even suing the Mail on Sunday for publishing a private letter she wrote to her father.”
Ant McPartlin was second in line as the most unfairly treated person of the year. The I’m A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here star has had a tough time but seems to have got himself back on track after his ex-wife and her fans were keen to prevent him from moving on with his life.
The Queen has also been acknowledged for her strife this year, managing her duties and family diligently, just as Greta Thunberg has received backlash on her efforts to protect the planet and drive awareness around climate change.
Sports people have not escaped the whip as Joe Gomez was booed- off at Wembley after being scratched by a teammate, and Megan Rapinoe scalded for trying to bring gender equality to the fore.
A spokesperson for PlayOJO, who are challenging the UK online casino market by being fair and transparent, said “We’re keen to re-address the 2019 balance and not only acknowledge her tumultuous year, but offer her some respite. Whatever you think of Meghan Markle, the majority of us Brits clearly agree on one thing – she’s had a pretty tough year. Ever since her relationship with Prince Harry became public, she has become the victim of severe and often unjustified criticism. It’s no surprise the nation thinks she’s been the most unfairly treated person of 2019”
The PlayOJO spokesperson added: “Treating our players fairly is fundamental to our business, we know how bad it feels to be treated unfairly in the casino industry, so we asked participants in our survey how we could make Meghan Markle’s year fairer if they had a chance. Answers ranged from giving her some down time to simply getting her a drink!”
Unfortunately, PlayOJO was unable to offer her any of these things directly, however, to nod to her troubles, PlayOJO will donate £500 to the Smart Works charity, where Meghan is the Royal Patron.
Prince Harry spoke to Thomas Markle about #Brexit. His father-in-law tells @GMB Harry thinks Brexit is ‘an experiment’ that ‘we have to try’.
All a little too close to the political debate for the Royal Family … pic.twitter.com/hyLDyGjaYd

Thomas Markle revealed Prince Harry is “open to” Brexit and may have been a Donald Trump supporter during a staggering television interview. Markle gave a thirty-minute interview to ITV’s Good Morning Britain during which he discusses Prince Harry’s personal politics. On Brexit he said of Harry:
“It was a loose conversation about something we have to try, there was no real commitment to it… I think he was open to the experiment.”
He also said Harry urged him to:
“Give Donald Trump a chance…I sort of disagreed with that but, er, I still like Harry. That was his politics, I had my politics.”
Asked if the Prince was a Trump supporter Markle replied:
“I would hope not now but at the time he might have been.”
Kensington Palace will be thrilled…
