Harry and Meghan Discussion Thread

Postby Australian rePublic » Fri Dec 09, 2022 5:13 am

So we're about 1/5 of the way through the decade, and so far, the biggest stories of the period have been, a massive, fricken global pandemic, the war in Ukraine, tensions between China and Taiwan, the recession and economic crisis caused partially by the two former events, massive natural disasters and amongst all that, two incredibly wealthy people who are part of a family that reigns over a significant proportion of the world attracting as much attention as possible to complain about oppressed they are and how much they hate public attention.

In case you haven't realised, I am talking about (former) Prince Harry (UK) and Meghan Markle.

If you ask me, the whole thing is getting ridiculous. From ludicrous assertions that the term "Megxit" is sexist to sitting and whinging about how oppressed they are is getting ridiculous. Didn't they claim to have left the royal family to avoid having a public life? And now, they won't stay out of the bloody spotlight, no matter how much we want them too. On the other hand, I also do feel sorry for Harry. I feel that he's really under the thumb and he's too afraid to stand up to Meghan.

Then you have the dumbest take of them all, the Netflix show, "The Prince" which shows Harry as so out of touch with reality that he doesn't even know what a refrigerator is. I mean, for goodness sake, the guy fought as a soldier on the front lines in Afghanistan, that's more in touch with reality than the idiots sitting in a board room writing this crap.

Anyways, I don't really know what else to say about Harry and Meghan. So, let's discuss them

The part where they tried to paint Brexit voters as racist rubbed me the wrong way.

I think that if they really wanted to , in a way , cut ties with Buckingham Palace , they should actually stop bringing press and public pressure on the royal family.Seriously every week there is something new said by them either or camera or somewhere else about the royal family which most of the time paints them in a bad light.

I agree. I mean, the reason why she claims to have left the royal family was because of how difficult it is being in it, so given that, why would she actively go out of her way to make it even more difficult for them? Especially now, considering that they have to deal with Charles being the first new monarch in decades, AND the whole ongoing Prince Andrew saga. She said she wanted to fuck off out of that life, so good, fuck off out of that life and leave them alone. I'm pretty sure that Harry is too afraid to say anything to her, and I honestly don't know why

Stupidity and an over extended sense of self importance.


. Wondering about their kids skin color isn't racism. Treating the kid differently for being a different color is. A distinction ms Markle is incapable of making

Well in that case, "Ginger and Whinger" is an apt nickname

At this point, she would probably think it's racist to choose a vanilla donut over chocolate

I don't know much about the British monarchy but does their children qualify as prince and princesses since they have decided to cut ties with the Windsor family.

That wasn't directed at Megan. She was long gone when lady whoever talked down to ngozi fulani. She was very quickly let go.

This is just an immensely stupid situation. They royals are acting out of line at times, but if Meghan and Harry really wanted to leave this all behind, then why do they keep doing interviews and shows and whatnot?

Literally the only time anyone talks about them is when they actively thrust themselves into the spotlight (or at least that's what I've seen. Correct me if I'm wrong)

They royal family are absolutely subject to criticism. However, this is a very different situation. First of all, it's not outsiders criticising them, it's insiders airing their dirty laundry, which would be a different situation all together if were palace staff. I mean, imagine if Joe Biden's own daughter started airing his dirty laundry. Secondly, they specifically said they wanted nothing to do with the royals, so why are they then spending much time airing their dirty laundry? I mean, I could go around criticising Australian prime minister Anthony Albenese all I like, however, that's a very different situation to if he had a daughter (and I chose daughter, because as far as I know, he doesn't have one), however, that's a very different situation to if his daughter, who claimed she wants nothing to do with him, then coming out and releasing a book about how often he uses the toilet. I know staunch, staunch republicans who think that Meghan is taking things too far

Few people if any were talking about them over the past few months, until they decided to release their tell all series on Netflix. They went out of their way to grab attention for themselves. Now they have that attention. You can't then ask why everyone is giving them so much attention.

OK, so why should they be prevented from talking about her treatment by the family and household?

Reminder that this is an establishment that was recently in hot water because of a notable person within it who refused to believe a black woman could be British and repeatedly pressed her to admit where she “really came from”.
