Meghan Markle: Is She Pissing Off the Brits By Celebrating Thanksgiving?

by at .  Updated at .

About 400 years ago, a group of pasty Brits boarded a rickety vessel and set sail for the New World with the goal of establishing a colony where everyone wouldn't just simultaneously drop dead the instant the temperature dropped below 40.

Unlike more recent immigrant caravans, of course, the Pilgrims earned a permanent place in the collective memory of Americans.

We probably don't need to tell you the rest of the story:

The Pilgrims had a nosh with the Wampanoags and now, Americans get a four-day weekend, at least a quarter of which is to be spent stepping on the necks of octogenarians in hope of grabbing a slightly marked-down physical copy of Red Dead Redemption II so that the nephew you don't even like will have something to open on Christmas morning.

To call the tradition beautiful would be like saying the Grand Canyon is a pretty big hole, or Brett Kavanaugh enjoys the occasional brewski.

More than Mount Rushmore, CTE, and civilian-owned military-grade assault weapons combined, Thanksgiving weekend is America.

So it's nice to see Meghan Markle reppin' the Stars and Stripes and proudly flippin' the bald eagle to her in-laws by celebrating Turkey Day right in the heart of King George country.

Now, to be fair, Meg probably won't be posting up in a recliner and gnawing on a drumstick while the Bears take on the Lions.

While that sort of behavior is customary on this side of the pond, Meghan is a duchess now, and finishing off a twelver of Natty Ice during the late game would probably be considered a "breach of royal protocol" or something.

And so, she marked the occasion in more suitable fashion by stopping by West London's Hubb Community Kitchen to applaud the workers for their efforts and whip up a batch of her signature stuffing (which the Brits call "chuzzlewit" ... we assume).

Furthering her reputation as the least-lameass member of the royal family, Pregnant Meg genuinely seemed to enjoy her visit to the soup kitchen and didn't once raise a kerchief to her mouth in response to any odors that may have been emanating from the poors.

Of course, this isn't Meghan's first Thanksgiving in the UK, but it is her first with a royal title. 

As such, there was some scuttlebutt regarding whether she would mark the occasion at all, and whether the famously vitriolic British tabloid press would give her any flak if she did.

So far, no shade has been thrown, but you can bet Meghan's evil half-sister Samantha can't wait to talk her signature brand of semi-literate trash.

Man, America really got stuck with the dud Markle, didn't we?

Hey, Brits, how about we tear up this pesky Declaration of Independence, and you guys give us Meghan back in exchange for Sam? Deal?

It's probably best if you recolonize us anyway.

We're not doing so great with this "democracy" business.
