I hope the Monarchy is aware that they are hurting themselves by targeting Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, Duke and duchess of Sussex.

“Before you embark on a journey of revenge, dig two graves.”

Surely, one would think they would stop digging their own graves.

Happy Petty Friday!

In a mere 7 days, we’ve seen the birth of a new Sussex, racist digs by a now-fired Telegraph columnist, and the reemergence of “palace sources”, which we all know is code for “courtier.”

So, let’s dive in!

The birth of Baby-Girl Sussex was going to make news, and even Meghan and Harry must have known that naming their daughter “Lilibet Diana” was going to set off the press and trolls who look for any excuse to skewer them. It’s the “palace source” story that really needs examining….

Now, any experienced Sussexsquad knows that “palace source” is code for courtier. Meghan & Harry have had their fair share of courtier drama in the past, but this new dustup appears to have caught them off guard. They have a good relationship with the Queen.

So what is going on?

After positing this question to a couple of fellow Sussexsquads over a nice bottle of California red (my personal favorite, no disrespect to Italy or France) a friend took a deep sigh & said “Girl, this is Edward Young. It’s got his name written all over it.”

We all agreed….

Now, in case you don’t know, Edward Young is the Queen’s private secretary. In 2017 he replaced the brilliant & well-respected Christopher Geidt at the insistence of Prince Charles & Prince Andrew.

Here’s where things get particularly interesting…..

Apparently both Princes Charles & Andrew had been gunning for Christopher Geidt for quite awhile. Charles, eager to take on more power & more of a leadership role, felt that Geidt was not giving his office the respect & control that it properly deserved.

And Andrew, well….

Andrew wasn’t a fan of Geidt’s tight control of his personal spending. Additionally, Geidt was determined to protect the Queen from any scandal regarding Jeffrey Epstein, whose case in the US was getting a lot of press coverage. Quietly, Geidt lessened Andrew’s public presence.

So, it was determined by Charles & Andrew that Geidt had to go. Despite Geidt’s excellent track record as press secretary, The Queen, around 91 at this time, voiced her displeasure but didn’t put up much of a fight. I mean who wants to spend their last years fighting over staff?

So, Edward Young was installed. As Private Secretary, he’s aware that his rise to such position was facilitated by Charles & Andrew. He’s aware that Her Majesty, the Queen, will not live forever, & he is also aware that, when unhappy, Charles & Andrew can get people sacked.

What has resulted at Buckingham Palace, I am told, is a revolving door of courtiers whispering, plotting, & leaking on behalf of independent royal household interests, & not at the behest or in interest of the Queen herself.

Very sad, indeed.

It is also worth mentioning that Edward Young is not personally a fan of Meghan Markle. This may explain why the leaks against Harry & Meghan go particularly unchecked, & why Harry & Meghan are demonized in the press without a Palace word, whilst stories of Andrew are buried….

Over our bottle of wine, my friends & I agreed that Edward Young has helped to make a fine mess of the Monarchy, the Queen’s legacy, & Britain’s international reputation in just a few short year’s time, as we wondered how different things would be, had Geidt not been disposed of.

I guess we’ll never know.

What we do know, is that it appears that Harry & Meg really do have a good relationship with the Queen, that most of what the Harry & Meg have said has turned out to be 💯% true, & that really, REALLY angers some powerful people back at home….
