Prince Harry and Megan Markle are fighting with the queen again saying that the queen has no authority to strip them of their right to say they’re royals. Basically what happened is that the queen said that the couple can no longer use the term “Sussex royal” because that’s not what they are anymore. The royal part of that title has been stripped. SO they posted an angry post about it saying the Queen doesn’t own the word ‘royal’. Now they say they won’t use the word but it’s their choice, not the queen’s. This is a big blow to Harry and Meghan who have spent a fortune and a lot of time building their Sussex royal brand website and idea. They had filed trademark applications for items like clothing and stationary and bandannas. Meghan said that regardless of the name, Harry and Archie have royal blood and no one can take that away. And that as a family, they will always be considered royalty.”
Chris Tavarez, who was the actor from Disney’s hit TV show “KC Undercover” is going to jail for several months for an alleged domestic violence incident, and that’s AFTER striking a plea deal.

He’s also getting credit for 153 days already served, which leaves him with a little less than 150 days behind bars.

I’ve taken them since I was 26 years old, various different kinds. I’ve switched and tried this and tried that.
