Unfortunately, the smearing of Meghan and increasingly Harry, continues unabated. The same old stories are being regurgitated by Royal Reporters and TV “Body Language Experts”.
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.
For three plus years Duchess Meghan has endured the nightmare of character assassination at the hands of the British media cartel. Prince Harry has every right to protect his wife and son from the vitriol and bullying.
To the British media, Duchess Meghan’s commercial value superseded her humanity. I would add that their prejudice against her made it easy for them to cross that line.
Looking at the kind of treatment the royal couple continues to face to date, I think we can safely conclude that the world is still a long way from genuinely embracing interracial unions and sadly, The Duke and Duchess of Sussex have not been spared from this unwarranted criticism.
Rewriting Duchess Meghan’s history in a negative light is virtually impossible since her pre-royal life is well documented; which makes the attempts to assassinate her character laughable.
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.
