Prince Charles has threatened to cut off Prince Harry’s cash flow if he and Meghan step away from the royal family completely, according to a new report. The Prince of Wales has made it clear to the couple that any agreement over money will depend on details of their future roles, the UK Times reported Friday. The father and son have reportedly been in negotiation chats since Christmas, the outlet said. In a surprise announcement Wednesday, Harry and Meghan said they were stepping down as “senior” members of the royal family and would work on becoming “financially independent.”

Daddy came out of his garden to talk badly about his son? Oh boy, Megxit is not turning out well. I am sure the happy couple cannot believe how this backfired. Meghan is a low life and Harry just is either out of touch, stupid or both. When granny says you should not do something, listen to her. Gran knows best, especially when she is the Queen of England. Seems the past few months are starting to turn out as another annus horribus for the Queen with Andrew the perverted and now Harry the un-Prince. I would say the Brits would do themselves a favor and turn out the entire family and become a republic. Royalty is just so 17th century.

It does not matter what Chuck does. It is money from the U.K. taxpayers that should be ended. It is estimated that Megan and Harry have a combined wealth of about 44 million. So it should not be too tough for them to get along in either Canada or in Hollywood, USA. The thought of them living in Canada for very long is bogus.. Where they really want to end up is in Malibu, CA, as that is where the money is, where their deep pocket progressive friends are who can help them make big money, and where Megan can be the diverse Queen of the Hollywood elite.

They’d already been cut off from the 5% grant that comes from the crown. Now Dad is saying the other 95% they rely on for their support will not come from him. In effect, if they are giving up their jobs, he will not pay their salaries.

How is that going to work? He has no skills and she was B actress with no great parts. I think if they step away they would not be able to stay in Canada,and he would have hard time coming to the USA to stay.

Those who read the article will know this. The 5% comes from the taxpayers. That has already been stopped with their announcement. Charles is just mopping up the 95% that he has been paying from income from his holdings in the Duchy of Cornwall. Ninety-five percent of the Sussexes’ costs are bankrolled by income Charles earns from the Duchy of Cornwall estate, while the remaining 5 percent comes from the taxpayer-funded sovereign grant.

Uh-oh! They were counting on Daddy paying them to do nothing forever. Maybe Harry can get a job flying helos, and Markle can.....well, I only know of one saleable skill she has, and probably shouldn't do that. They can move to Belize,become beach bums and fleece tourists. All sorts of possibilities.

BTW, when they returned from their Canadian holiday (which included her mother) they left baby Archie behind with a nanny (probably grandma). Madam Meghan has now returned to Canada for an indeterminate period. I sense an ultimatum’s having been given. “Quit the Firm or you lose your son and me”… I don’t believe either of them dreamed the royal purse would snap shut.

Actually, #2, Charles makes a bunch of money "on his own" via the Duchy of Cornwall which is a huge business, mostly agricultural, but lots of rentals, etc. I read that only 5% of Harry's money came from the government, the rest from the Duke of Cornwall's funds (Charles), which are fairly honestly made from the huge land holdings the the Duchy has. But cut off Harry from the Duke's money, they are pretty well down to acting like a normal person....go out and get a job. Harry can fly helos, which pays pretty well for normal folks, but would probably barely cover Markle's shoe budget.

I heard yesterday that their income (Harry and Meghan) from the taxpayers and Charles is about four and a half million pounds per year. In addition, they have the use of that newly renovated estate and about 600,000 pounds worth of security. Did they really think they could just retire from obligations, reestablish in North America while still retaining the estate and the funding? And don't we read that Oprah is the one who convinced Meghan this was the way to go? Poor Harry. He's made the same mistake Edward VIII made, getting enchanted by a multi-married American. But now, there's a child involved.

OK, thanks, #5, I didn't read your post before posting. I had read the same info elsewhere. I looked up the Duchy of Cornwall yesterday, HUGE, but very scattered about in SW England, not one single land holding as I imagined a duchy to be.

Charles should not stop cutting there... Due to Meghan's arrogant hissy fits, Harry is going to end up with no money and no Meghan in a year or two. Women like her do not stay with a poor man for long.

The Royal Family better be careful dealing with these two. They might get an offer to write a tell-all book. This situation could be much worse than what happened with Princess Diana. I heard on Fox News that Oprah was advising the couple on their "Declaration of Independence." Oprah should stay out of this.

I suspect "SussexRoyal" is their brand, and they already have deals set up for perfume, clothing, liquor, etc. They are going to monetize their name/brand a la the Kardasian's, on a global scale. Then go for an IPO...it's not a crazy idea. They're gonna have to pay off the Queen and Prince Charles...could be interesting to see how it plays out

Prince Harry would have been better off if he'd kept going to Vegas and having wild sex with various females, all the while it is filmed. Remember when that happened to him? Embarrassing? Perhaps to Granny and Pops. And maybe to Harry. But still better than being married to Megxit!

The Wall Street Journal had a clever headline: "The Husband Formerly Known as Prince." Megan will surely continue striving to separate Harry from all family connections until he doesn't remember who he was. Then she'll try to remake him to match her ever-changing taste. When he fails, she'll either dump him or drive him to the point that he'll dump her.

The gruesome twosome expect to be well compensated through their own version of The Clinton Foundation which was registered long ago in Arizona. Arizona. They're being advised by Obama and Clinton cronies. These cronies are experts at laundering money through "Foundations" donated by rich snobby elitists who want to rub elbows with "royalty". Or like Hillary, 'you want to talk to me'? Then make a $1 million donation to The Clinton Foundation. That's how Lady Lucifer rolls and that will become standard operating procedure for the Markle Machine. The ungrateful duo ambushed The Firm and laid out their 'stepping down' terms publicly so if the Queen or Charles don't accept them in total, they can cry and whine how it's so unfair and now they and poor little moon-bump baby Archie are victims of the mean Royal Family. We're being persecuted...wah wah wah. Woe is me-me-Meghan.

That's one wily Queen. Don't know how she managed it, but somehow she got the right person to whisper into the Megster's ear that this would be a good idea. Which it is . . . for the Royal bank account. Cuz in a year or two, maybe three, the American divorcee will grow tired of it all and divorce the little prince. But by letting them think they've gone rogue, the Queen has cleverly managed to limit the royal losses when the ex can only stick her hand in the pocket of her untethered prince instead of the deeper one of the royal family.

No one had ever heard of Me-Again Markle until she started stalking Harry, the Half Wit Ginger Prince. Plenty of evidence suggests she finagled an introduction and really went in for the kill very quickly. More than likely her aging eggs played a part in the rush, needing to pop out a guaranty (Archie) quite quickly. Some former lib Canadian politicians’ family members were involved as I assume they were in her social orbit when she lived there filming ‘Suits’. I think Harry was manipulated and his desire to compete with William (wife, family) clouded his judgement. Add in his anger about his mother (he blames the royal family). He’s a fool who rushed in. She is a twice divorced (well, if you count an annulment) gold digger. It was never going to end well. I just wonder who’s really pulling her strings. And it has nothing to do with ‘race’. Heck, no one even knew she was bi-racial. It’s about ego, greed, her total inability to learn and practice protocol, and a complete lack of respect for the RF, the country and it’s traditions. They (mostly she) blew it. Say goodbye, now.

I believes the Prince of Wales' income is derived from the Duchy of Cornwall. It is not public, and is quite lucrative. A disgruntled public might demand Charles cut them off, especially when "Sussex Royal" brand adult diapers appear, followed by a reality show with Netflix ('Those Crazy Sussexes!'), appearances on Dancing with the Stars, and endless paparazzi photos of the lovely couple at booze and coke fueled Hollywood social events.

Lighten up #31. We don't hate the Royal couple. Hard-working middle-class is just venting on how good Prince Harry and Cinderella Meghan had it, to be part of the Royal family and yet, squashing it to join the low life, "Hollyweirdo All About Me", community. Prince Harry has the potential of duplicating that story, "The Prodigal Son", in the Bible.

I'm sure that everyone imagines that "the Royals" are ultra rich, but as to Charles, he earned ~22 million pounds from the Duchy, which seems to be his main (only??) income source. So, with him passing some on to the boys, that isn't even remotely super-rich by modern standards. I suspect that Gates gives away that much per week on various charities. So, definitely comfortable, but also definitely NOT super wealthy folks. Of course, having a dozen or two homes to choose from is pretty nice, but you do have to keep all those old places up, and I imagine that they are real money pits, and probably need a staff of 10 or 20 at minimum for all of them, even when he isn't there.

Even as Progressives double down on their claim that Trump was somehow responsible for the Iranians shooting down a passenger plane, Iranian protesters are rising up against their government because Trump has told the truth and is actively supporting them. In mid-2009, shortly after President Obama took office, Iran had its own presidential election. Voters believed (reasonably) that the election was rigged and started protesting. For months, hundreds of thousands of people were on the streets in protest. Over nine months, the government arrested at least 10,000 people and killed over 100. Never once did Obama give the protesters a single word of support. Obama’s silence was deadly.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex will be confronted with the dire financial impact of abandoning the Royal Family at an extraordinary Sandringham summit tomorrow. Royal aides and Government officials have drawn up a range of scenarios setting out the ‘stark implications’ faced by Harry and Meghan if they abandon or dramatically scale back their royal duties – including a major tax trap. In what sources described as a ‘reality check moment’, Harry will travel to Sandringham for a showdown with the Queen, Prince Charles and Prince William. Meghan is expected to join by phone from Canada, where she is caring for their eight-month-old son, Archie.

Around 13,000 people will be evacuated from their homes after unexploded World War II bombs were discovered in a German city, authorities believe. Officials suspect the bombs were dropped on Dortmund by Allied forces during World War II. The city - in Germany's industrial Ruhr region - is to be brought to a standstill after the evacuation affecting retirement homes, hospitals and the main train station. In an online statement, Dortmund city hall said they had identified four locations where they suspect the bombs are buried. The suspicions were based on 'anomalies' detected during construction projects, the statement said. 'Only an excavation' could confirm the existence of bombs, it added.

Late last year Chick-fil-A ruffled feathers across the fruited plain when they announced they would no longer provide charitable donations to the Fellowship of Christian Athletes and Salvation Army. Both organizations had faced years of withering attacks from sex and gender revolutionaries who were angered because the two renowned Christian ministries affirmed the biblical definition of marriage. So when Chick-fil-A made their decision public, many Christians accused the company of backing down to a bunch of militant LGBTQ bullies. And in response many of Chick-fil-A's staunchest supporters flew the coop.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell told Republicans that the impeachment trial will start next week — with or without the articles of impeachment that Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi has hijacked for the past 23 days. McConnell (R-Ky) echoed the warnings of Senator Lindsey Graham, who earlier this week said Pelosi needs to put up or shut up. Mitch made the announcement during a closed-door lunch Thursday as more Democrats pressure Pelosi to turn over the articles, calling her gambit a waste of time. McConnell alerted Republicans that “they should not expect to be able to go home next weekend, indicating that the long-delayed trial will be underway,”

CBP Officers assigned to the Juarez-Lincoln International Bridge in Laredo, Texas, observed a man approaching for entry into the U.S. on Sunday. During an initial interview, officers received a hit for a possible warrant on the subject and referred him to a secondary inspection station, according to information obtained from CBP officials.

If Democrats can't stop howling that President Trump's killing of Iranian terrorist chieftain Qassem Soleimani was some kind of failure that would mean war, maybe they should ask the terrorists on the ground over in Iraq. If they can find them. Turns out they're running for their lives. Sara Carter has an important bit of news about how they're taking it: U.S. officials have intercepted chatter and received confirmation that terrorist leaders in Iraq have been fleeing the region and have gone into hiding fearing United States intelligence capabilities after the successful airstrike that killed Iranian Quds Force leader Qassem Soleimani, according to multiple sources that spoke to SaraACarter.com.

President Trump entered office promising to change the rules so that the number of people receiving benefits from the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (better known as “food stamps”) would shrink. Trump finally made good on that promise in December, but his act was almost redundant, for recently released numbers show that his strong economy had already shrunk food stamp rolls. Barack Obama got the nickname “the food-stamp president” because food stamp usage reached unparalleled heights during his administration. In his first two years in office, 12 million people were added to the already 28 million people receiving food stamps. By the time he left office,

Recently, President Donald Trump authorized the killing of Iranian general Qassem Soleimani. Democrats responded with fear that Iran would become angry and retaliate. They must have seen the television show The Incredible Hulk. In that show, the Hulk's alter ego, Dr. David Banner, said, "Don't make me angry. You won't like me when I'm angry." The audience knew he could transform into an angry creature with enormous strength. The Democrats must see Iran as such a creature. The truth is that when someone becomes angry, his strength remains the same, but his thoughts become irrational. The one who holds his temper has the advantage.

The president accused the Democrats of standing up to defend Iran instead of supporting Trump’s decision to take out Soleimani. “We’re having people like Nancy Pelosi, that’s a real genius, can you believe that one?” he asked. “Nervous Nancy.” He called House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff “little pencil neck.”

The second — a serial abuser of women who hired as his campaign manager a lobbyist for violent dictatorships - authorized an immigration policy that forcibly separated migrant children from their families and indefinitely detained them in facilities described as “concentration camps.” Democracy, as they say, is messy.

A new anti-Trump Republican group, the Lincoln Project, is out with their first ad targeting President Donald Trump as the group looks to chip away at his support among evangelical voters. The video titled "the MAGA church," which comes on the heels of the Trump campaign investing big in evangelical outreach, features a string of unflattering clips of the president along with the message: “If this is the best American Christians can do, then God help us all.” The ad is a first test of the type of firepower the Lincoln Project can produce as the group of anti-Trump Republicans

A lie told often enough becomes the truth. I keep thinking about the above quote whenever anyone claims that the Obama administration was scandal-free. How many more times are we going to hear people make this claim and see it go unchallenged? During an interview on CNN on Friday, former Secretary of State John Kerry, who's in Iowa campaigning with Joe Biden, echoed the oft-repeated claim that the Obama-Biden administration lacked scandals. "I believe Joe Biden is the only person who has the set of relationships around the world, who has had this unbelievable breadth of experience as chairman of the Foreign Relations Committee and then as vice president for eight years —

The moderate Republican, who signaled that she is open to witnesses in a Senate impeachment trial, told reporters on Friday that she is working with a “fairly small group” of GOP senators as part of an effort to solidify support for witnesses in the impeachment trial in the Senate. “I am hopeful that we can reach an agreement on how to proceed with the trial that will allow the opportunity for both the House and the president’s counsel if they choose to do so,” Collins said, according to Bangor Daily News.

LAUSANNE, Switzerland — U.S. Women’s National Team and Seattle Reign FC star Megan Rapinoe responded Friday to the new guidelines from the International Olympic Committee on political protests at the 2020 Tokyo Games. “So much being done about the protests. So little being done about what we are protesting about. We will not be silenced,” Rapinoe wrote on an Instagram story Friday. The IOC published guidelines Thursday specifying which types of athlete protests will not be allowed at the 2020 Tokyo Games. Athletes are prohibited by the Olympic Charter's Rule 50 from taking a political stand n the field of

Where are the clowns? Send in the clowns. Don't bother — they're here. (snip) Megxit is a problem, a drama, for the Royal Family, but it is not a constitutional crisis for the monarchy. It is a drama of friction between two brothers and their wives for reasons not made public, but probably over differences over the haste of Harry's marriage to Meghan. Harry has said, without explanation, he was on a completely different path from his brother William,

The nation’s most powerful law enforcement agency is in shambles. Following a series of internal investigations, in addition to extensive reporting on the misconduct of former top officials, the Federal Bureau of Investigation is suffering a crisis in confidence from the very people it has a sworn duty to protect: the American public.(Snip) Unfortunately, the man now in charge of the FBI, Christopher Wray, is not the right man to clean up the rot left behind by his predecessor. Wray’s filing this week to the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court is another example of why President Trump needs to find a replacement for the nation’s top G-man and to do

The nation’s top spy court appointed an Obama-era Justice Department official who has denied and downplayed FBI surveillance abuse to assess the FBI’s response to a scathing new report cataloguing problems with how the agency secured authority to spy on a Donald Trump campaign affiliate. Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court (FISC) presiding Judge James Boasberg appointed David Kris to review the FBI’s proposed changes to its surveillance application process even though he spent the past few years running interference for the FBI as substantive criticism of the agency mounted.Lengthy investigations in the House of Representatives and by the Department of Justice inspector general

Meghan Markle's voiceover deal with Disney could have been swung by Harry after video footage emerged of the Prince seemingly trying to persuade franchise boss Bob Iger to give his wife a job. At the Lion King premiere in London last July, the Duke of Sussex collared the powerful Disney chief and advertised his ex-actress partner's 'interest' in doing voiceover work. During the hushed conversation, caught on camera by a fan, the Prince gestures to Meghan and says: 'You do know she does voiceovers?' Iger can be heard replying: 'Ah, I did not know that.' Harry then responds: 'You seem surprised. She's really interested.' The Disney chief then says:
