Meghan Markle Drops Royal Title: I’m Not a Duchess Anymore!

Published

on

By


Think of this as the royal equivalent of “you can’t fire me, I quit!”


When Meghan Markle and Prince Harry first stepped down from their roles as senior members of the royal family, there was much debate over whether the couple should be stripped of their royal titles.


But now, it looks as though the former Duke and Duchess of Sussex have decided to put a stop to the controversy by dropping the titles on their own!


Time Magazine’s list of the 100 most influential people of 2020 will be revealed during an hour-long ABC special next week.


The fact that the list is being unveiled in prime time on network TV probably has more to do with the quarantine content drought than any real public interest in the names on the list, but we digress.

Meg and Harry


The reason we mention this is that the promos for the special refer to Harry and Meghan simply as “Harry and Meghan.”


Now, that might not seem like a very big deal, but you have to understand how seriously the Brits take their royal titles.


Prior to this week, it would have been considered a major sign of disrespect to refer to the Duke and Duchess of Sussex as anything other than the Duke and Duchess of Sussex.

Going public as simply “Harry and Meghan” represents a major step toward independence for the couple.


And it could have something to do with their latest rift involving the royal family.


Meghan and Harry signed $100 million deal with Netflix recently, and while the nature of the collaboration remains unknown, it’s already got the royals up in arms.

At a Parade


The reason is that the Netflix is home to the acclaimed scripted series The Crown, which takes an in-depth look at the life and reign of Queen Elizabeth II.


The show provides a warts-and-all portrayal of the royal family, delving into such uncomfortable topics as the marital infidelities of the Queen’s husband, Prince Philip, and the Nazi sympathies of her uncle, King Edward VIII.


Conversation about the series is said to be forbidden in Buckingham Palace, and no member of the family has remarked on it publicly.

Olivia Colman as The Queen


Insiders say Prince William in particular is livid about Harry’s latest business deal, and sources claim the brothers are no longer on speaking terms. 


Is it mere coincidence that Harry and Meghan decided to ditch one of their last clear ties to the royals just as their long-simmering feud began to bubble over again?


Perhaps, but it’s not hard to see why so many have jumped to the conclusion that the two developments are connected.

Baby Sussex


Of course, it’s possible that this is just a temporary arrangement.


Maybe Harry and Meghan decided to go for a more casual tone for the ABC appearance, and they’ll be back to using their formal titles in no time.


But it’s equally possible that this was a deliberate and permanent move intended to send a clear message to Harry’s family that they’re no longer in control of the former Duke and Duchess.

Stream Napalm Death’s Killer New Album Throes Of Joy In The Jaws Of Defeatism

Published

By

British extreme-metal veterans Napalm Death are a true rarity: A band that remains vital and beloved, even though they’re decades past their most famous era and even though none of the people currently in the band are original members. Napalm Death were grindcore pioneers back in the ’80s, and they persist as brutalist elder statesmen who keep finding new ways to explore feelings of rage and violence and existential dread.

Today, Napalm Death follow their 2015 album Apex Predator – Easy Meat with a new album called Throes Of Joy In The Jaws Of Defeatism. It kicks ass. The new LP’s early singles — “Logic Ravaged By Brute Force,” “Amoral,” the cover of Sonic Youth’s “White Kross” — suggested that this album was going to steer straight into the sounds of postpunk, goth, and industrial. That’s not really where the album goes. Instead, Napalm Death have come out with a wide-ranging and ambitious album that still pulverizes.

Over 15 tracks and 51 minutes Throes Of Joy In The Jaws Of Defeatism covers a lot of territory — fast brain-scrambler grime, cavernous death-metal thunder, post-apocalyptic Killing Joke bonfire-chants, epic crust-punk roars. Somehow, all of it holds together, cohering as a kind of echoing end-times rumble. If you like the sounds of that, then this album might be something that you need in your life. Stream it below.

Throes Of Joy In The Jaws Of Defeatism is out now on Century Media.

She’s also expressed a desire to have another child. Earlier this year, when she posted an Instagram photo of her in a bodysuit, this sparked rumors she was pregnant. When a follower asked is she was pregnant, Kourtney said she wished she was.

Kourtney’s desire for baby number four is something she’s discussed for a while, so has the time come for her to expand her family?
