About Meghan and Harry

I am going on record as saying I am a supporter of the monarchy even though I am a citizen of a country that fought it in a war for independence. It serves a function of service to the commonwealth and provides a historic continuity of leadership that dates back centuries.

However it like many institutions has serious faults that have made it problematic in how it relates to the people. In the case of the Duke and Duchess Sussex, they seriously dropped the ball and failed to take care of the family. Granted I don’t know all the details but in Meghan and Harry’s interview with Oprah Winfrey, we got a pretty good look into how things operate with “The Firm”.

You can see the full interview online and I won’t bring up all the specifics but racism and a lack of caring for the couple is shameful. Harry as a veteran served his country and deserves better treatment. By extension, his wife and children should benefit from his service too. It’s also acting like human beings and showing love and affection. As a modern couple they were ready to serve Great Britain and do the things to bring honor and positive attention to the Royal Family.

I feel that the Monarchy has a long way to go in being relevant and modern. There are some hard lessons and truths to be learned from these revelations. Let’s hope Buckingham Palace can be a quick study and apply what they are learning the hard way.

  1. Just saw her father’s interview. She writes she loves him and hasn’t spoken to him in 2 years. He only lives 70 miles away, and never met his son in law, or grandson. Doesn’t sound compassionate to him. He said that if she needed help he was there for her. Who do we believe?

    1. Oh please stop. Why were you able to watch the interview. Why is there NO interview with her Mother? I believe her. Guess what, the reason “dead beat dad” exists for a very good reason.

        1. No, I don’t, and that’s all it is. Is an opinion. I don’t believe for a single second that you respect mine either. Where do I have to respect you’re more than clear disrespectful opinion, that’s based on tabloid judgement?

        2. But it’s a bad opinion and contributes to the cycle of abuse. And it’s not polite to say that we should be compassionate towards someone who expects others to take care of them, but they don’t have to consider anyone else. He done absolutely NOTHING to help himself. He is an adult, and needs to take responsibility for HIS actions, first. Not for Meghan to forget what he’s done just because he says “I love you”. This whole “Respect the mother and father” is completely outdated.

        3. I will tell you why though your opinion is a REALLY bad one. The problem with people like you, is that you have no problem with the cycle of abuse continuing. TMs IS a deadbeat Dad, who attacks his daughter any chance he gets. People like you think this is okay because he says “I love you”. Like any other abuser. Do you have any idea how many abusers say “I love you” while or after abusing someone? If not’s okay to abuse a partner, why is it okay, for people like you. Too have a child have to continue with a cycle of abuse? It’s not okay. This whole “children HAVE to respect their parents” is utterly toxic and ridiculous, and the cycle of abuse will continue. So your opinion is a BAD opinion. You can have it, but it’s always going be bad and wrong.

    2. A parents one JOB in this world, is to PROTECT YOUR CHILD. Not the other way around. I’m sure Meghan loves him still, but at some point. If he wont protect her, why in HELL should she have anything to do with him?
