My point was they hate the Royal family - but still want to link their daughters name to it. It's like me saying I hate cheese but I'm going to call my daughter Brie (kind of ).
they don't hate the royal family, they rely on publicity because of the royal family.

after all, Suits is long since over and we all know the female star of that show had red hair.....

If I had to name a daughter after a cheese, I'd call her Feta or Laughing Cow just for the laughs.

As a questionable expert on laughs, royalty and cheese, I am forced to point out that your taste in cheese could hardly be worse. Puhlease, “la vache que rit”, seriously? If you’re really into processed rubbery processed ersatz-cheese, I’d suggest “Gala”. Might not be much better but does have a slightly more appropriate sound for a [insert adjective of your choice] disenfranchised royal kid.

I think they hate the royal family as an institution and something which they both blame for a bunch of bad stuff that happened to them, not the individuals in it.

She won’t be entitled to a title until the Queen dies due to some law that came in over a hundred years ago. Most of the Queen’s great grandchildren won’t get a title until Charles becomes king.
I read somewhere that the new baby is entitled to be called Lady now, and can become princess later when her grandfather Charles ascends to the throne. However, her parents chose not to use a title for Archie so it would be a tad odd if they magically chose to use one for her. Archie could have been given his father's second title, Earl of Dumbarton, but they chose not to do that.

Re: [Prince] Harry and Meghan

I see they're taking 20 weeks leave from their non-jobs. That's good, they could re-tile 1 bathroom per week and still have 6 weeks left to hire a nanny

Re: [Prince] Harry and Meghan

"ITV has been cleared by media regulator Ofcom, which has rejected a record 58,000 complaints about Piers Morgan's criticism of the Duchess of Sussex.

The ex-Good Morning Britain host said he didn't believe what Meghan said in her Oprah Winfrey interview in March.

The duchess herself filed complaints with the regulator and ITV.

Ofcom said restricting his views would be a "chilling restriction" on free expression but criticised his "apparent disregard" for the subject of suicide.

Morgan said he was "delighted" with the ruling, which he described as "a resounding victory for free speech and a resounding defeat for Princess Pinocchios"."

Interesting issue. Free speech prevailed

I feel sorry for the TV talking head who's trying to get his job back playing the free speech card when everyone knows this depends on popularity, TV ratings, retweets, and face/insta likes. There's THE LAW, and there's the law of offer and demand.
