A brief recap on key events from November 2016 to December 2019 relating to treatment of Harry and Meghan by British Media. Events that led to that famous announcement on 8th January 2020 by the Sussexes that they were stepping back from Senior Royal life. Key dates from January to March 2020 culminating in their Farewell Tour, and all the successes achieved from April 2020 despite the barriers and obstacles placed in their way by the British Royal Family and British Media.
It is time for sensible people of the UK to cease thinking of members of the Royal Family as people that you own based on the miniscule contribution you pay towards their existence.
My question is why this International piece of legislation, which is in force with some amendments to ensure that it suits the UK legal framework, does not appear to be applied to the Sussexes?
Is the chasing of Harry and Meghan around the world, for breaking faux rules and/or protocol part of a new reality show that we have not been informed about?
It was recently reported that the Sussexes have purchased a home of their own and that they have been there since early July. Harry and Meghan are operating on a global stage now, securing projects and contracts with big players in the field.
The Royal family, like the rest of the UK will now have to operate without the benefit of the skills and experience of people that could have contributed to their long term growth.
From tabloid columnist to TV presenters, there seemed to be constant feedback loop where newspapers write nonsense, Tv presenters bring on so-called “experts” to review and discuss said nonsensical content.
Other new members have been allowed to join and settle in without the prying of the UK media. The one who has captured global attention, and who has been treated badly by UK press, is the only female new addition to the family, who is also the only person of colour in the family.
What the UK media, and in particular the Royal Rota press pack, did not anticipate was the extraordinary strength and resolve of the Duchess of Sussex. None of them believed that she would still be standing tall after the cruelty inflicted upon her daily for the last three years.
I began to save articles and social media posts about how the Duchess of Sussex was described in the various narratives being portrayed on a number of platforms; these would become my ‘receipts’ to be included in some kind of subsequent action once I decided what would be the best route. My notes that I started to write daily covers the last three years.
