    You can always rely on a British pensioner not to sugarcoat it: https://twitter.com/pcolemanchester/status/1291403378346676225?s=21

    Sounds like what I know as a timeshare model? I wonder if members will be able to “rent” to non members.

    I love platinum as a metal. My engagement, eternity and wedding rings are all platinum with either emerald or princess cut diamonds. I’ve been married 15 years this year, but with my other half for 25. I too haven’t worn my rings since lockdown - until last week when we went out, and I was shocked by how loose they were. I lost 2.5 stone two years ago and didn’t really notice the change in finger size until now, but now I have i worry I might lose them. I am not sure I want to get them resized (one is a full circle of diamonds), so might just get a plain thin band to wear instead.

    I believe it’s now lab created but was originally identified as naturally occurring, then recreated. I also have no issue about who pays for it. If you’re the one who’s going to wear it every day, get what you like! I love both diamonds and pearls. I actually went years ago (with my then boyfriend as company) to buy myself a diamond ring for my right hand, with a bonus I got from passing my professional exams. I wanted something to celebrate my achievement as it was hard work. The shop automatically assumed it was an engagement ring, but I soon set them right.

    I wonder if some of the really big stones we see these days might be mossanite instead, I think there’s been a trend towards that in the U.K. as you can get a larger stone for less than a diamond (but still pricey).

    I find enormous engagement rings terrifying, I don’t know how people can leave the house in them. I’d be so worried about losing it! Mine isn’t even a carat and I don’t wear it when we’re travelling for that reason. I love emerald cuts though, it’s my favourite diamond cut.

    The Mail is indeed loving the kerfuffle, but I don’t think it will go to trial either. I am not sure a ruling that Meghan’s friends can’t have privacy is in the press’s favour - the other sources might dry up if they don’t have an expectation of privacy! And we know Will and Kate has their “friends” out to defend them recently.

    Agreed. I can’t help but notice that aspects of the British press are desperate to lay the blame at their doors even now - rather than suggest that being raised in absolute privilege might have made the blessed princes into entitled little f**kers!

    I believe Lainey too, on the not being friends front. I do think it’s possible she might have been getting stuff from the same sources as the people who’ve written the book, because gossip spreads. That’s why we (I) love it! As I said I miss that her site is no longer my escape from royal stuff though, now it’s a daily story at least! But it’s obviously driving hits for her so I can’t imagine she’s sad I’m no longer reading. 🤣 This article from the guardian today is a bit how I feel about all of this royal stuff: https://amp.theguardian.com/uk-news/2020/jul/28/prince-harry-and-meghan-book-royals-flawed-finding-freedom-sussex#click=https://t.co/9V7S70lK1H

    https://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/article-8565937/Meghan-Markles-gossip-columnist-friend-emerges-potential-source-claims-deep-rifts.html i find this quite interesting for a couple of reasons: (1) I basically quit reading Lainey when she pivoted to having such an ongoing focus on the royals, which seemed an odd switch to me (but that could be selfish on my part, as that’s not what I’m really after in my North American gossip sites) but (2) before I did quit reading her site, I had a suspicion the daily mail were lifting some (royal and non) stories from her site, as the same stuff would show up a day or so later, so I think she’s been on their radar for a while. Edit: I forgot to say, I know Lainey was going in hard on Prince Andrew, so who’s to say this isn’t driven by someone who’s trying to put her off?

    Of course Harry and Meghan contributed to that book, and in the same way William and Kate got their “close friends” to talk about how devastated they felt about that book. The truth is probably once again somewhere in the middle. 🤣

    Love Serena, and frankly the influence she is having on her husband to put his money where his mouth is as well.

    Here’s the vanity fair story on the complaint (I chose an accessible source that wasn’t a U.K. tabloid!) https://www.vanityfair.com/style/2020/07/prince-harry-and-prince-william-respond-charities-funds

    Also the charity accusation has come from someone with an agenda against the concept of a constitutional monarchy, he literally heads the Republic group - so far there’s nothing to suggest anyone is trying to skim off cash.

    Justin Timberlake

    Ha they suggested she was pregnant, on the basis she appears to have been avoiding full body shots on her social media. So who knows 🤣
