SDuke and Duchess of Sussex are involved in her new home, Frogmore Cottage, before the birth of her first child. "Cottage" can be a too humble name for a Class II house with 10 informed rooms, given by the queen and remodeled for about 3 million pounds. And, according to reports this week, now we end up with a patch of vegetables and a study of "floating" yoga. "Frogmore" is at least appropriate, given the preponderance of the frogs in its nearby lake (a disgusted queen Victoria once said that "made the grass look like it was alive").
This is prince Harry and Meghan, the new base of the Duchess of Sussex, 20 miles from her former home and former residents of the Kensington Palace, the Cambridges, as well as other real estate varieties also in the real residence of western London, Edward VIII called "aunt". Heap ".
His desire to start his family life outside Kensington Palace is understandable, although the price is under the Heathrow flight route. The recent announcements that Harry and Meghan should establish a separate official house with offices at the Buckingham Palace, and launched their own Instagram account – @ sussexroyal – has an oxygenated speculation about the "Fab Four" division. By the division I read "rift", or "excavated," according to reports, unable to resist perpetuating rumors of rows among the brothers, or – even better – among their women.
Kate's photographs, the Duchess of Cambridge, Meghan and her husbands, laughing together, did little to cushion their needles, while columnists rushing to face the two women in particular. Even the Chelsea Flower Show is not immune, with some gardening media launching a "classic English" garden for Kate's charity against an African climate change garden for Meghan's charity.
"They told me that the tensions were between the two brothers and that they really had passed a pretty difficult patch shortly after the announcement of the engagement. But two duchesses who fight in a cat, that's a sexiest story," says the real correspondent of Vanity Fair, Katie Nicholl, author of Harry: Life, loss and love.
When looking at the public, there were always only two; brothers princes, indissolubly linked to the tragedy; the memory of them dragging the coffin of his mother with disconcerted puzzled yet so vivid. Later, two became a trio in the marriage of Prince William. But with Harry still alone, he looked at each inch "or extra". Now married, and after finishing serving in the army, Harry is looking for a significant role. We already see the first indications of how he and Meghan intend to operate. Constant reinvention is the way the monarchy strives to survive. And with his marriage to the old American actor, apparently an emotionally literate, independent, liberal, politically-regulated, politician of age poverty and message writer supporting bananas to sex workers, it is fair to say that the reinvention of Harry is unprecedented.
"Brand Sussex" will have an international arena from which it will promote its messages on humanitarianism, environmental awareness and mental well-being. But the fact that their offices are under the canopy of the queen's highest advisers will not challenge them, the real watchmen predict.
Sussexs surely have an audience for their vision; Your Instagram account breaks the world record of attracting 1 million followers in less than six hours. Now it's over 4 million and it counts. Photographs published so far seem to emphasize personal, such as the sharing of private moments until the time of elephants in the African shrub, instead of the official engagement shots we see from William and Kate. They also have the support of famous friends; among them the Clooneys, Serena Williams, Oprah and Jessica Mulroney.
They also have, in her newly hired secretary of communication, Sara Latham, a pedigree professional in the political and corporate world on both sides of the pond. His former clients include Bill and Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama and Tony Blair. Sussex's house will be financed by Prince Charles through his Duchy of Cornwall, the queen through the funds of the duchy of Lancaster and the taxpayer through the annual sovereign government grant.
A deviation of logistic ways for siblings has always been inevitable, say the helpers. The older kings historically have created their own families in marriage, the Yorks and Wessexes are recent examples. It was an "intentional misunderstanding" to characterize "as a kind of precipitation," says Andrew Morton, a biographer of Meghan and author of world bestseller Diana: his true story. Palace sources emphasize that having two families is preparing both couples for their future. The long-term plan was always for Harry to marry. Now he and Meghan are about to have their own family and have a new official residence, it made sense to start moving to this permanent structure.
But the moment is unfortunate, according to Joe Little, editor-in-chief of the magazine Majesty, who believes that it should happen immediately after Sussex's marriage, "so there could be no rumors about breaches between brothers or sisters."
William is on the rise. He will be prince of Wales, then king. His family is headed by private secretary Simon Case, 40, a former chief private secretary of Prime Minister Theresa May and his predecessor, David Cameron. The last three weeks of William's attachment to the security and intelligence services, MI5, MI6 and GCHQ, illustrate well what the roles of the brothers are. "William has a lot to learn, about the Duchy of Cornwall, about the government, and about many other things that Harry never needs to worry," says Little, pointing out that Harry's position can only diminish as he slides in the line of succession. . "They need support teams to be independent because their roles are so different. But that is a boring story. It's not what the tabloids want to hear. "
William, Kate and her three children are now the central royal family and will be limited much more by convention. The Kensington Palace will feel "more traditional and domestic" in comparison to Sussex, according to Nicholl. William and Kate, as the future king and queen, will obviously make great walks abroad. "But, especially when it comes to the Commonwealth, overseas representation will fall on Harry and Meghan," Nicholl adds.
Many believe that being American, divorced, mixed and made by themselves, Meghan marrying "the company" modernized the monarchy alone. Hundreds of millions around the world watched the ceremony on television. She is seen as different from Kate, who silently adopted Windsor's modes. Harry, speaking very explicit about his own mental health in a personal way, and Meghan, by proclaiming his feminism, seem to be promoting a new kind of progressive "delicate" royalty. And the baby Sussex, who will soon be the seventh in line with the throne? Observer is unlikely to be a "national moment" to present to his newborn in the footsteps of the hospital. In fact, the first nation that can see Sussex's boyfriend is in his Instagram account.
There are unconfirmed reports that Meghan will avoid Kate's election of a £ 7,500 private suite at night at the St Mary's Wing of Paddington's Hospital, opting for the local NHS Frimley Park Hospital, or even at home delivery. A photograph of the emerging couple at the Nashing Hill Ilapothecary welfare store, which offers healing and energetic meditation, is seen as evidence of a different approach to this real birth. This approach, according to mail on Sunday, includes the dispensation of the services of the actual domestic gynecologists employed by Kate and other women, in favor of an unnamed woman.
The Sussex still has to appoint a private secretary to replace Samantha Cohen, a former queen's advisor, who has held the post provisionally but is about to leave. While the couple tries to navigate a path that balances Harry's right to wealth and privileges with adherence to the causes he publicly promotes, Latham, whose experience is in "leadership of executive thinking and purpose-directed campaigns," will try to minimize mistakes .
The eyes with eagerness have already made never before about the environmental and financial impact of Harry on helicopters in Birmingham, at a cost of 6,000 pounds reported, two days before telling thousands of boys at Wembley Arena in WE Day, "each leaf of grass, all rays of sun and every fall of rain are crucial to our survival. "Similarly, Meghan's private plane, which Clooneys has lent, was criticized for his extravagant shower bath in a luxurious luxury hotel suite in Nova York. So that they do not forget it, the image of the frugality that royais want to design is that in which Princess Anne can still wear coats for 30 years, and Charles chooses to adapt their costumes, although the tailors of Savile Row .
The speech of the Day of the EE. In the event that encouraged juvenile activism, perhaps it gave a glimpse of what you can now expect from the susexes. Here was Harry, walking on the stage, a microphone hanging in his hand, praising his audience as "the most committed generation in history," urging them to find their "true north" and have a little pop in the media. He was greeted with applause, especially when Meghan joined him on stage. Traditional males shook. "Cringe-worthy," the Sun cried; "Part New Age gibberish" filed a Daily Mail columnist.
"It was very" awake. "It was very Meghan. It was not what we heard before Harry and that is what has taken everyone by surprise, including his friends," says Nicholl. "This is a boy who went to the pub and was shooting. Now he is drinking green juices and meditating."
The couple's staff will be based at the Buckingham Palace and under the supervision of Queen's senior officials. Latham will inform Donal McCabe, the new communications secretary of the queen, who previously held higher positions in the Ladbrokes, Landsec, Boots and Railtrack bets. Harry can find this as a fit; To give up the freedom he enjoyed at Kensington Palace, "what is incredibly freelance," believes Nicholl. "There is a sense that there is potential for them to be more run over in the Buckingham Palace. It's very revealing that your communications manager has to respond to Donal. This says a lot. And I think that the story's subtext is a lot."
