    It's good to read that she's already learning the art of waving at crowds- something one must excel at before being admited to Windsor family.

    I was interested to read that Harry and Meghan got in touch with Reprezent rather than the other way round, saying its work chimed with their interests.

    Sure that's not Harry and Meghan PR team?

    Here's a pic (from cllr matt parr's twitter) where you can see how casual and intimate it all was. Screen Shot 2018-01-09 at 16.38.04.png

    Prince Harry is fifth in line for the throne. I'm no royalist but as this country has a constitutional monarchy I will put up with whose near the throne. No way Prince Harry is going to be monarch.

    Nothing against him personally but I think he should keep out of publicity stunts like this. As fifth in line for the throne why does he feel need to have a public role?

    Imo it's reinforcing the way this society is structured by class. Are commoners like me supposed to be grateful he is coming to Brixton?

    What is the point of this visit? Good PR for "The Firm"?

    Pop has just reached a new low in my estimation.

    Well done Reprezent Radio! Great for them - they look like they deserve recognition for what they do.

    Don't you get it? It's not about Represent it's about good PR for the royals. And for (socialist supposedly) Lambeth Council pet project Pop.

    A visit like this would have taken a lot of planning and thought the Council would have been involved.

    Yes I do get it - but I'm still happy for those who work at Reprezent whose profile will be raised by this.

    I hope it's all positive. Sometimes these things can backfire.

    In that case you are doing exactly what the PR department of "The Firm" want.

    This PR exercise for the Royals has worked.

    I agree. It's a rather good piece.

    The endless niches that are explored for various on-trend supper club "feasts" can only be admired:

    Yes, I positively insist on having my nibbles expertly matched with the appropriate music that has been designed for people filling their faces.

    This stuff about Royal family reminds me of my town Plymouth. In the English Civil War Plymouth was for Parliament spent the whole war under siege from the backwoods Royalists who controlled Devon and Cornwall. Chatting to my brother who still lives there both are proud of our towns history. The siege of Plymouth was hard fought and bloody. No quarter given on either side. They never surrendered.

    After the "restoration" many leading lights in the siege ended up being imprisoned.

    There is little to commenerate this heroic struggle of Parliamentarins fighting the King against all the odds.Plymouth being a naval town has lots of prominent memorials about Francis Drake, and other wars. Not about the siege.

    What I'm saying is that this country had another history of opposing Royals. That's been sidelined. That's is legitimate part of this country.
