Prince Harry, Duchess Meghan, The UK Monarchy Rules and Human Rights – Conclusion.

Back to Article 8

  • Family Life – there is no set description for what constitutes a family. This element is usually applied in cases where children are removed from the family home, for whatever reason.
  • Respect for Your Home – You have a right not to have your home interfered with, such as by surveillance, or unlawful entry or evictions which have not followed due process.
  • Respect for Your Correspondence – You have the right to uninterrupted and uncensored communication with others; a right that is particularly relevant when challenging phone tapping and the reading of your private communications.

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 minuscule contribution you pay towards their existence. And even if they were owned by Brits, why do the British people want to fund an institution that is clearly violating fundamental human rights, in order to prop itself up? It is a travesty that should not be condoned, let alone subsidized by scarce public resources. There are questions to be asked about whether a modern society needs and should pay for a Monarchy?

If it is needed for whatever reason, should they be required to ascend to a higher standard? Is it right in this day and age to have children brought into this world, to be used as chattels and have a life mapped out for them from birth to grave? Is it right that the first born child of a senior Royal is considered a future King or Queen regardless of whether they wish to take on that role, and more importantly have the competence to do it?
Are we saying that modern day slavery within Royal circles is acceptable? Because that is exactly what it is. Simply because of birth order, children are prevented from reaching their full potential, are used as objects not human beings, some are denied rights they will otherwise have, if born outside of it. Anywhere else, this would be considered abusive. When a human being is “owned” and used for another’s benefit…

Prince Harry and his wife Meghan have been treated like pariahs because they dared to assert their own human rights within the confines of the institution. They did not demand anything beyond the pale, just fair and equitable treatment. Nothing the other members were not being afforded.
The right not to be treated in a degrading way, the right to marry and found a family, the right to not be discriminated against, the right to respect for private family life, home and correspondence, the right to not be punished for something that is not against the law, the right to be free from slavery and forced labour, the right to peaceful enjoyment of possessions- yes, that too is a human right. For some reason, Harry and Meghan are denied these rights while other members are accorded them, and even treated like they are owed those rights.

Why were The Sussexes (even their young son) singled out for such poor treatment, which continues unabated? None of what the Sussexes have done in leaving an abusive environment is against UK or International Law. The only reasonable explanation for most people is racism, by proxy for Harry, which has been vehemently denied. But everyone who has ears and eyes and an objective head can see clearly.

Recently one Queen’s Counsel wrote on a social media platform about the “undertones of racism” in Meghan’s coverage and the implications for people of colour in the UK: If someone like Meghan could be treated this way, what hope for ordinary people?

Promptly, one from the royal rota, who regularly posts negative comments about Meghan responded to the Queen’s Counsel admitting that “there were indeed undertones of racism in the reporting but that the Queen’s Counsel should know that “undertones” is not against the law. Let that sink in for a moment. We have always known that this has existed from the start 4 years ago, and we were gas-lighted every time. Now that same pack feel confident and secure enough to admit they choose their wording carefully but it is indeed racism that is the main theme here.

One of the Royal photographers attempted a half-baked mea culpa and was begging Harry to return to help out the Cambridges. He said the reason for all the disgusting press coverage was because Meghan would not meet with them(for what?) and that if Meghan had allowed access, the press could have seen her as human (as opposed to what??) and she could have seen them as human too. Who raised these people? Less than two months later, that same photographer had an article in one of the tabloids this month, now stating that the Sussexes “deserve all the abuse” that they are receiving. No more needs to be said, other than the fact of that photographer having the backing of the royal family, and feeling confident to write those words.

I think the Royal family should just get on with the cards that they dealt themselves, and be glad that the Monarchy is still hanging on by a thread. Human lives are worth more than some sham popularity. I personally, if given the opportunity to remove the structure of the Monarchy, would vote to do so. I have gone from an indifferent Brit, to now wishing for the Monarchy to end, based on their appalling behaviour towards Harry and Meghan and their son and the enabling (and sanctioning) of equally abhorrent behaviour by the press over the last 4 years, and what that spells for a diverse Britain in general. That should not stand.

Articles 1 and 13

Articles 1 and 13 of the ECHR do not feature in the Act. This is because, by creating the Human Rights Act, the UK has fulfilled these rights.
For example, Article 1 says that states must secure the rights of the Convention in their own jurisdiction. The Human Rights Act is the main way of doing this for the UK.
Article 13 makes sure that if people’s rights are violated they are able to access effective remedy. This means they can take their case to court to seek a judgment. The Human Rights Act is designed to make sure this happens.

** Universal Declaration of Human Rights:- all nations. It sets out, for the first time, fundamental human rights to be universally protected and it has been translated into over 500 languages. The Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) is a milestone document in the history of human rights. Drafted by representatives with different legal and cultural backgrounds from all regions of the world, the Declaration was proclaimed by the United Nations General Assembly in Paris on 10 December 1948 (General Assembly resolution 217 A) as a common standard of achievements for all peoples and…

    Great article and I’m impressed with the amount of research and cogent analysis went into preparing this informative well written piece. The injustice has been perpetrated and that can not be undone.  The silver lining, if there is one, would be the exposure of all the ugliness as you stated in your great article.  The wonder is that you at least can write an exposing righteous piece rather than an obituary about the whole event and for that we praise God that Meghan and Harry are survivors being mentally strong who are intelligent in their choices and decisive in their actions to get out before it’s too late.  It happened so massively in the first two years of their royal engagement so they only sustained a short loss of time which is way better than waiting until 4 or 5 years later to act and withstand continued suffering and abuse for the wrong purpose.   The Sussexes have done the country a great service by serving as a mirror of conscience to the society where the issue is real and hampers the progress of  social harmony and equality for years to come if not exposed and addressed.  I come to admire Harry more and more for his courage and loyalty to his marriage and is willing to face the issue head on without apology or being cowed by all the high handed coercions.   I can see the Sussexes taking up the activist role in pushing social justice and racial/class equality, not just in the UK but throughout the world.  Yes, their work won’t be easy nor getting a fair reception by the people in the UK, but from the myriads of thoughtful articles I read recently on this platform makes me think that there are pockets of intelligentsia in the UK started to speak up about this dark side of the establishment and will lent a helping hand to what the Sussexes is trying to do and will eventually form a critical mass for the real change in the mindset of that society.  With the recent launch of Archewell, I think the Sussexes are in this “game” for the long haul until there is light at the end of the tunnel.   As Harry alluded to, this is a marathon, not a sprint, and the like minded folks will have to work together to form a cohesive voice for change without being strident.

    Huh it was so laughable & embarrassing how that old photographer almost in tears begging for Harry to come back & help out, asking for forgiveness😃 these people are full of s***. Now the change or turn about is that he was admonished since it din’t come out as the propaganda they always spout &
    so he was ordered to say otherwise, most probably they wrote it out for him, poor fool😕 he should retire.

      I am trying very hard to maintain my composure and not be angry . However it’s impossible. How can a woman, a human being who has done so much good in this world be dehumanized and criticized and attacked so much on a daily basis? She has a mom in Doria, yet these people don’t seem to see that when they go after her . She has a husband in Harry , they use that as a weapon to rip them both to shreds. She is a mom for a little boy. Can they at least try to remember that? I can’t comprehend how the royal family Ana the British Media ans some despicable Brits sleep at night . How do you look yourselves in the mirror when you are nothing but evil ? I pray that Harry, Megan and baby Archie continue to live their happily ever after

      Thank you for your comment. I agree with your thoughts. The world is waking up as to what is going in the U.K. Monarchy and its media, and karma will come calling at some point.

    3. Ivy Barrow

      I agree with your conclusion. Karma will pay them all a visit one day. They all need to stop the fake tears about the need for Harry to return. Ignoring the fact he has a wife and child. Words fail me. The behaviour of RF and media drove the Sussexes away. Now they need to focus on those they have left and leave Harry and Meghan to work with organisations who value their contribution. Thank you for your comment.

    1-many feel Meghan and Harry got out just in time ? Asking what did they see or know that made them run and give up everything ? Although that dark side of the firm/Royals is starting to be revealed anyhow by media and others !!

    2-when one is warned about a country and its people
    Being able to destroy hurt and harm a person by their media/press which can only survive and continue the hunt and torture because its citizens buy and lap up the gossip/ rumors and frenzy hounding -like they did with Diana and others and M&H ???

    3-M&H have their own destiny if left alone they could do good works ? What is the matter with people…what is the matter with countries were hate and harm are so prevalent?
    Nothing stays a secret forever- it always gets exposed and finally when the sheep mentality wakes up – it is no longer acceptable? Or not just saying

      Thank you for your comment. Increasing numbers of people are beginning to realise that the Sussexes are not the problem. The U.K. Monarchy and its media is receiving more scrutiny than they are used to and it is not going away. I am so glad that the Sussexes left the U.K. and hope they only return for projects and the odd family/friend event. Justice on many fronts will one day prevail. We all want them safe and happy and returning to reside in the U.K. would ensure that quality of life would not occur. Sussex supporters will continue to have their back.

    I cannot not understand how some people in the UK let the BM run wild. Do they not care about what negativity does to the wellbeing of the people that they trash. How many lives have to be destroyed before the people get a grip? I have noticed that when the BM and other trolls get trolled they can’t take it. I have always wondered, how they would feel if trolls went after their families, friends and jobs. Great stories, as always.

    1. Ivy Barrow

      Thank you for your comment. Monarchy and U.K. media have been in partnership for decades. The owners of the various publications are owned by media barons, all of whom belong to various associations that a member of the Royal family is the Head or Patron. The reasons for that link may have been for genuine reasons once, but in my opinion, whatever the original reasons it is now clearly mutual support to ensure both entities continue to exist. Things need to change. People are not commodities on a store shelf.

      Thank you so much. I have more in the pipeline. Currently researching, gathering my evidence. Time consuming but oh so worth it. It means that everything this website produces is fact checked. There is a lot of merit in that approach. Thank you for your support.
