Meghan Markle and Prince Harry to Take Sabbatical and Bring Baby Archie to the U.S.

Published

on


Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are taking a much-needed break.

Not from each other, though! But from the chaos that is public life. And according to The Sunday Times, the royal couple plans to bring their 5-month-old son, Archie Harrison, to America for the first time!

According to the publication, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex will take a six-week sabbatical for «family time,» starting next month until the Christmas holiday. The three will spend their break in both the United Kingdom and the United States, marking the first time their son will visit his mother’s homeland.

With that, they are expected to celebrate Thanksgiving with Meghan’s mother Doria Ragland at the Duchess of Sussex’s childhood home in California, and Christmas with Queen Elizabeth II and the rest of the royal family at her Sandringham estate in England.

The news comes weeks after Harry and Meghan brought Archie with them on an official trip to southern Africa, which marked their little nugget’s first royal tour, following a private visit to France.

Additionally, the royal couple’s upcoming break comes after the Duke of Sussex called out the British tabloids over their «ruthless» campaign against his wife over the past year, during which there were numerous negative stories written about her while she was pregnant and just after she gave birth.

In fact, the two have also begun legal proceedings against one of the outlets, The Mail on Sunday, over its publication of parts of a private letter that Meghan had written to her estranged father, Thomas Markle.

In a trailer for the ITV documentary Harry and Meghan: An African Journey, which is set to air on Sunday in the U.K. and on Wednesday on ABC in the United States, an emotional Meghan opened up about her struggles and life as a new mom. 

«Any woman, especially when they’re pregnant, you’re really vulnerable and so that was made really challenging,» she said. «And then when you have a newborn, you know…especially as a woman, it’s really, it’s a lot, so you add this on top of just trying to be a new mom or trying to be a newlywed its, yeah, well I guess.»

«And also thank you for asking because not many people have asked if I’m OK,» she continued. «But it’s a very real thing to be going through behind the scenes.»

«And the answer is? Would it be fair to say, ‘Not really OK,’ as in, it’s really been a struggle?» the interviewer asks.

«Yes,» Meghan replies.

Prince Andrew to Step Back From Royal Duties After BBC Interview

Published

on


Prince Andrew, Duke of York, will step back from his public Royal duties with permission from his mother Queen Elizabeth II, amid ongoing backlash over his train wreck of a TV interview about his sex scandal.

On BBC Newsnight on Saturday, Andrew, the 59-year-old uncle of Prince William and Prince Harry, denied allegations that he had sex with a 17-year-old girl obtained for him by his friend and convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein, who was found dead of an apparent suicide in a U.S. prison in August as he awaited trial on a sex trafficking charge. Following the controversial interview, several companies and charities distanced themselves from Andrew, causing further embarrassment to the Royal Family.

«It has become clear to me over the last few days that the circumstances relating to my former association with Jeffrey Epstein has become a major disruption to my family’s work and the valuable work going on in the many organisations and charities that I am proud to support,» Andrew said in a statement on Wednesday. «Therefore, I have asked Her Majesty if I may step back from public duties for the foreseeable future, and she has given her permission.»

«I continue to unequivocally regret my ill-judged association with Jeffrey Epstein,» he continued. «His suicide has left many unanswered questions, particularly for his victims, and I deeply sympathise with everyone who has been affected and wants some form of closure. I can only hope that, in time, they will be able to rebuild their lives. Of course, I am willing to help any appropriate law enforcement agency with their investigations, if required.»

Andrew gave his interview amid months of renewed scandal over his past ties to Epstein. Many viewers slammed the duke over his BBC Newsnight sitdown, noting his often incoherent denials and strange recollections, as well as an apparent lack of compassion for Epstein’s victims.

One of Epstein’s accusers, Virginia Giuffre, formerly Virginia Roberts, has said she was forced to have sex with Andrew three times between 1999 and 2002, including in London and on a private Caribbean island owned by Epstein. She was 17 years old and legally underage at the time. In his BBC interview, Andrew denied having sex with a teenage girl, adding, «I have no recollection of ever meeting this lady, none whatsoever.»

He also questioned Virginia’s account of meeting him sweating and dancing at a London nightclub, saying, «I didn’t sweat at the time because I had suffered what I would describe as an overdose of adrenaline in the Falklands War, when I was shot at…it was almost impossible for me to sweat.» Days after the interview, British tabloids posted pics of Andrew sweating and interacting with women at parties.

In the interview, after it was noted that he stayed at the house of a «convicted sex offender,» Andrew signed and said, «It was a convenient place to stay. I’ve gone through this in my mind so many times. At the end of the day, with the benefit of all the hindsight that one can have, it was definitely the wrong thing to do. But at the time, I felt it was the honorable and right thing to do. And I admit fully that my judgment was probably colored by my tendency to be too honorable. But that is just the way it is.»

The Grammys Try to Course-Correct Down “Old Town Road”

Published

on


The perennial wave of questions as to the relevance of the Grammy Awards has been at high tide the last few years. In 2019, the artists who, with varying degrees of intensity and winkingness, criticized the awards included Ariana Grande, Jay-Z, and Dua Lipa. In his rap-song-of-the-year acceptance speech at the ceremony, which was conspicuously cut short in the telecast, Drake said, “If there’s people who have regular jobs who are coming out in the rain, in the snow, spending their hard-earned money to buy tickets to come to your shows, you don’t need this right here. I promise you: You already won.”

The common, related complaints are that the awards are lacking in diversity and slow-moving in a fast-changing pop music landscape. Hip-hop’s continuing cultural and commercial dominance, for instance, hasn’t done much for its Grammys standing. And if the broad aim of the ceremony is to give a picture of the year in music, Beck’s 2015 victory over Beyoncé for album of the year was especially head-scratching. The Recording Academy has a new president this year, Deborah Dugan, who arrives at the job with the challenge of course-correcting an awards ceremony that some artists no longer bother to attend.

Billie Eilish and Lizzo went four for four in the biggest categories—Lizzo had the most nominations overall, with eight—in a year in which both were ubiquitous. After his record-breaking “Old Town Road” chart run over the summer, how the Grammys would handle Lil Nas X’s massive success was one of the major questions ahead of the nominations announcement. His social media-born star is the kind that the awards might be expected to overlook in previous years. Instead, the Academy gave him six nominations, the same as Eilish, and even included his EP 7 in the album-of-the-year category, which hasn’t had nearly as much staying power as “Old Town Road” itself. Rather than nominating an established juggernaut like Taylor Swift, who’s won in that category twice before, the Academy seems to have been banking on the optics of rallying behind a widely beloved newcomer.

It’s an uncharacteristic decision, and perhaps a statement of intent for a ceremony that’s struggled to adapt to the streaming era. But it only goes so far, and it only reflects so much of the music that’s driven the past year of numbers and sounds: There’s just a touch of rap in the nominations, no Spanish-language music in the big four categories outside of Rosalía’s best-new-artist nod, and no BTS to speak of.
