For years we’ve heard all that was wrong and imperfect and offensive about Harry and Meghan. Tales of “family” that have dropped them like a ton of bricks, distanced themselves, supposedly embarrassed by Harry and his wife.
We’ve just entered the sixth month since Harry and Meghan officially transitioned into their next chapter. All indications are that, the couple are moving ahead with their plans to be financially independent while charting a philanthropic course.
As if we didn’t already have enough to deal with, a royal Karen said hold my coatdress. She called her royal media police, to do a number on a lady who is minding her own business, probably enjoying some avocado toast by the pool on a sunny California day.
Operation reclaim the spotlight is being resuscitated after an attenuated response to all previous iterations.
The sad thing is that, the outlets repeatedly use her, a woman of color to do their dirty work, to allow them the plausible deniability of racism, which has largely informed the othering of Meghan by the British media.
This family certainly has not taken care of ALL its members. It is not for the lack of will or resources. They had the wherewithal to deny that the Duchess of Cambridge uses Botox, when even Bartimaeus of Jericho could clearly see her wrinkles before they magically disappeared.
Stop trying to tell us how unprecedented this lawsuit is, knowing full well that other royals including The Queen, The Prince of Wales and Diana, Princess of Wales have all sued the British media on privacy grounds and prevailed.
At the end of the day, when people donate money, time or any other resource to a charitable end, they want to see that resource judiciously utilized properly translated to results.
The couple, undeterred by the relentless attacks and driven by a real passion to make a difference, continue to use their platform to address issues that are pertinent to the lives of people in a substantive and value-based way.
Hopefully when these propaganda hacks get on the train, or bus or the next flight to South-Africa to cover the Sussexes tour, they will consider offsetting their carbon footprint, now that they have become so “knowledgeable” about it.
