Part of this article is to alert the Sussex Squad that whilst I applaud our defence of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, come 2020 we really need to strategise.
The fact that so-called journalists are ill-prepared to intelligently cover the only non-white member of the royal family is an indictment of the “journalists” and their parent networks or organizations.
This community of amazing men and women continues to grow from strength to strength and the latest initiative, #SussexGreatForest, proof of the power of grassroots organizing, has been conceived by 12 brilliant women within the Sussex squad.
So I had to ask myself, when did advocacy for change, wanting to use your privilege to do good, become a curse for those who have passions, purpose, drive, means, a good heart to champion those causes that, let’s face it a lot of us would turn a blind eye and look the other way, turn into a fault?
Since becoming a Duchess, her activism and participation in world issues, particularly where women are concerned, continue undeterred. The patronages and charities the Duchess has taken on reflect who she is and what she believes and stands for.
Could it possibly be that she has been left out to hang because she has exposed some Royals, who are also living off British taxpayers, to be inefficient and basically unproductive?
Over the years, the tabloid media have been left unchecked in how they report and this has led them to becoming so powerful, a law onto themselves.
The specific purposes of the daily and persistent vilification of Duchess Meghan appears to be twofold. First, to convince the British public that, as a woman of color, Duchess Meghan does not belong in the royal family and second, to break her spirit.
Whether or not the British media like it, whether or not they are accepting of it, Duchess Meghan is a positive Force for Change, not just in the United Kingdom, but globally.
