      For some reason, I am not sure about this one. There is some lack of fire there. On either end. Good news is my opinion no matter. To all of you black women asking “can he handle a black woman,” are we monsters? Hian!!

    Oh my. I’m so thrilled. Yay for Megan. Harry broke all protocols on this one. She is older, divorced, half black, non-affluence family. Wow!

      Well, now they are saying down the line they are distant cousins. The inbreeding has to continue!

      But nobody will say he married down. Let it be a female now, we won’t hear word.

    let’s face it, she’s out of his league. if he was not a prince she won’t even look at him twice.

    the question is can he handle a strong black woman who is older than him and has a failed marriage under her belt?

    secondly, can she cope? being a british royal is very boring. cutting ribbons and shaking hands for the rest of your life. i remember vividly princess Diana was always miserable and bored to death at royal functions.

      wao analysts of life.
      i agree with you on counting the cost though and i hope they both understand that royal divorce is always messy.

      anyways i love the way love struck guys look.

      If play is prose …harry might be a polygamist anyhoo but let’s not cross that bridge until we get their. I just see more than one marriage in this rebel’s future. Hehehe

      Its this “strong black woman” label that turns men off. She looks feminine and gentle. Whats so “strong” about her? And yes he can “handle” her. It is this masculine language that has kept Black women in America on the short end of the married stick. What is about her character that a wealthy, powerful, disciplined Prince can’t handle?

      Abeg, I disagree she is out of his league. Who is she? She is not an A-list Hollywood actress and I haven’t even watched the suits they talk about. But this guy here is a big deal: He is a Prince of the UK; the only sibling of Prince William of Cambridge

      Lol, you had me @ “being a british royal is very boring. cutting ribbons and shaking hands for the rest of your life. i remember vividly princess Diana was always miserable and bored to death at royal functions”. Get over yourself, like seriously mein…

    ok na lets go there. grab you popcorn and zobo as our Cinderella from a little known dysfunctional american family, marries our prince charming from the most famous dysfunctional in the world. interesting times unfolding.

    You know Meghan is an American girl, she’s not gonna be under the spell of boring British royal activities, she would be respectful but she is definitely dancing to the beat of her own drum, she is definitely going to be a lot more influential as princess diana than that baby popping man dependent Kate.

    • Mrs chidukane

      November 27, 2017 at 6:54 pm

      Abeg don’t insult my Kate. When age is not on your side, you should have kids as quick as you can. I love Kate. She will go the distance. At her own engagement shoot,she was more composed than Meghan was today and made a fashion statement as well. Meghan is even wearing Ill fitting shoes and is clearly very nervous with all her Hollywood sophistication. I watched them on CNN. Her outfit choice is also very forgettable. See how he looks so much better than her. Shaa don’t insult my Kate,I take it very personal. Thanks.

    • A

      November 27, 2017 at 8:22 pm

      @Mrs Chidukane, why pass the agression towards Meghan? Haba. Address the person who attacked Kate and not the innocent Meghan.

    • A

      November 27, 2017 at 8:35 pm

      P.S, You say what she wore was forgettable, yet a few minutes after they appeared for the first time, the website of the designer whose coat she wore crashed due to the surge to buy it. This was reported by BBC and CNN, they had to interject to report it while their reporters on ground at Kesington Palace were talking.

    • Mrs chidukane

      November 27, 2017 at 9:35 pm

      Bose, Its still a forgettable outfit. People buying it doesn’t make it unforgettable. I’m not aggressive towards Meghan. I’ve always been a fan. I’m just pointing out that everyone has something to commend them. Kate is great on her own. Meghan is also great but not better than Kate. If you see someone else wearing this coat will you say, hey look at Meghan’s coat? I think not. Its just a white coat.

    • Smh

      November 27, 2017 at 11:18 pm

      Beht did she tell you she was looking out to create an “unforgettable” whatever the heck that nonsense means. She doesn’t owe anyone a certain style or look, let her be abeg.

      BlueEyed – the same Royal family? She must conform if not they will give her the Fergie treatment.

      “You know Meghan is an American girl, she’s not gonna be under the spell of boring British royal activities” – she has quit acting and the start of the boring British Royal activities start now.

      “She would be respectful but she is definitely dancing to the beat of her own drum” – what drum? Only if the drum suits the royal drum. She will curtail whatever it is that doesn’t conform to Royal standards.

      “She is definitely going to be a lot more influential as princess diana than that baby popping man dependent Kate.” – there’s no way she’s going to be more influential than Diana and she won’t be allowed to outshine Katherine who will be Princess of Wales (and Queen) once Wills is Prince of Wales at the ascension of the throne by Charles.

      Harry is a rebel, just like his Uncle Andrew. See how he ended up.

      Do we see a pattern here? It’s still the Royal family and they lay down the rules. The Royal courtiers are ready for her.

      Please show me the toaster you bought that pops out babies…it’ll be of immense help. I’ll recommend it to Kate when she wants her fourth. No more hyperemesis gravidarum. We can pop all the babies we want without hassle. Bless you.

    @ bruno, she be actress. she go act her part. show have alot more success marrying real royalty than fellow actors. she will not be bored. she is intelligent enough to understand what is being send. in a gatherig were everyone speaks above your head one will be bored.
    she is a go getter and a social climber like the middletons . she will do just fine

  9. Adaolisa

    November 27, 2017 at 5:43 pm

    Who are you to judge Kate? Just because she strives to keep her marriage drama free,you call her man dependent.Why is it so hard for people to see the good in others and respect the choices they make?Well, I guess it’s a case of hidden jealousy.

  10. Papacy

    November 27, 2017 at 6:17 pm

    Lol. The truth is that Megan will conform to the royal lifestyle. It’s bigger than anyone. She has already started shedding some parts of her career like closing her blog etc. It’s what comes with this life, she seems cool headed. She can handle it.

    Another scandal loading …expecially with black women that are known for drama and issues. already she is older and a divorcee….thank God not a single mother phew!! or it will be a full grown Akata..another rob kardashian drama loading except this one will be a royal drama which I will love to watch unfold..I predict it will start once she have a child…I was reading the daily mail and I can already see they know where this is heading and they are smiling at another royal family drama…William and kate were boring to them , nothing to see and report but with those two phew!!

      You must really hate yourself and the women in your life.

  12. Hey

    November 27, 2017 at 7:31 pm

    People keep on talking about meghan being divorced when all of Queen Elizabeth’s children apart from the last born are divorcees, Princess Anne is twice divorced. So please give the lady a break no one is perfect and even if they divorce at the end of the day and so ??they move on and life goes on.

    • A

      November 27, 2017 at 8:30 pm

      I taya oo. People are just haters really. Talk like the monarchy is pristine without issues or like Prince Harry is just finding out she is divorced and older. Is Prince Charles not married to his long time mistress and divorceé? Abeg make we hear word. Age this and that, is it that you guys don’t also know Kate is months older than William? Yes they are the same age, but she’s still months older. Wish the young man and his Princess well and move along.

    • Anon

      November 28, 2017 at 12:17 am

      Princess Anne is twice divorced. No, just once.

    November 27, 2017 at 7:47 pm

    They move on and life goes on….That is the problem..No one really moves and life doesn’t really goes on like that expecially in that family..hence we call it drama.

    It’s a bit creepy that part of Diana’s wedding ring is infused with Meghan Markle’s . MM is 36 and Diana left this earth at 36 as well….just creepy

      Really? You peopl will not kill somebody on this blog with your jankara analysis. When was Meghan born, when did Diana die that you are talking of reincarnation?

      Pls, where hv all the old serious comenters gone???????

    Prince is marrying an older, bi-racial non britiish, non affluent lady. Then one useless naija man that works in bond bank in sandgrove will invite you to wear aso-ebi for his cousins wedding and then come and ask you why you have not washed all his pant and cooked for his mother. Naija women, get woke!!!!! lets keep our standards high and let the real men rise to meet them

    Congrats to them. Why are people being so negative towards them. I’m not a fan of the royals either nor am I a fan of Meghan but they made their choice as it’s theirs to make. I feel peoplecare being mean to her because she of West Indian (Caribbean) descent as her mother is Jamaican. If her mother was Nigerian so many of you would be singing her praises.

    Bless God for them.

    I guess there’s still hope then, was in a bus on Sunday morning, opened my what’sapp status and the first picture that popped up was the introduction picture of the guy I thought I was gonna settle down with. I was baffled, dumbfounded, with lots of emotions running through my head at the same time, my heart was shattered into like a million pieces.

    He tried to apologize via chat and was like he didn’t know how to break the news to me bla bla….

    I cried in the bus the entire journey, I was so hurt!!!

    This wasn’t my first heart break but this was the worst.

    I’m trying to heal now, slowly I must say……..

    Can’t even hold back the tears now….

      Don’t worry you just jumped a bad one. Dry your eyes and believe God to give you someone who’ll cherish you enough not to keep deep dark secrets or play you. Meanwhile focus on your other dreams and ambitions and give them all your passion for now. This too shall pass.

      November 28, 2017 at 2:29 am

      Cry all you want. You will wake up some day and feel better. His loss. You just dodged a bullet. He is not a man. Real men sort all issues before getting married. A real man will never allow you find out like that. Goodluck for the future.

    @dainty typical woman already forming victim ..so suddenly, he wakes up and decided to leave you?..

    @northernlights We all loved #BAAD2017 but that was us NIGERIANS and maybe a few other African countries. Meghan and Prince Harry are on a whole other level. This is the freaking British monarchy we are talking about! Every form of media in the entire WORLD is covering this engagement. Two different levels.

      As in Baad17 should take several seats. The girl is so adorable, who saw the interview and how much she giggled at him. She seems smitten, Harry tho, well, mens way of showing affection is most def different except they switch it up a notch like Tom cruise on Oprah’s couch but no man wants that, do they?

    Oh well, meghan can now say goodbye to short clothes,coloured nail polish,A CAREER oF HER OWN and other things that can showcase independence or personal choice, but hey! At least she’s gets to be a real life princess **wide-eyed gasp** and travel around d world walking two steps behind a man,possibly birth more royal kids,cut ribbons and shake hands and live life according to the dictates of others for the rest of her life. How inspiring. Y’all need to get over this whole Disney-Princess-cinderalla-story thing. This is REAL LIFE yo, ain’t no happily ever after with that kinda life.Now now, before u guys start talking me negative Nancy, really think about it, you can’t even wear what you WANT to, forget not being able to even have a career and such, even the tiniest details r scrutinized and you guys think all that pales in comparison to being the wife of THE ALMIGHTY PRINCE of Wales ?(Windsor?)

    Me, as in me oh, who nor dey go club, party, who lives a pretty drab life because I live in the bush, will still be bored with that kain life, so she has to gear herself up (gbaradi) and just be prepared to take it all in good stride. With time, she will get over it maybe once some little Harries/Harrietts start running arand the house. No matter how much shopping and expensive goodies…boredom will still be boredom. Neeways, I am sure she will make it happen. I wish both of them the best in life (as one alakori I used to know liked to say).
