Royal Family News: Are Prince Harry and Meghan Markle Ensuring Monarchy’s Survival?
Royal Family news reveals that, though Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have had to wade through endless criticisms, claiming they’re “destroying the Monarchy,” at least some feel it’s the opposite. Read on and we’ll get into it in more detail.
Royal Family News: Meghan Markle and Prince Harry Trying to Destroy the Monarchy?
Royal Family news reveals that many have argued that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are trying to take down the monarchy, speaking out on issues they had to face as working royals. However, according to Insider, some commentators feel that, in reality, they’re improving on the institution.
Two of the couple’s most recent detractors are Tom Bower, author of Revenge: Meghan, Harry and the war between the Windsors, and television personality Piers Morgan. The Guardian reports that Bowers, speaking on Piers Morgan Uncensored in July, said Prince Harry and Meghan Markle “pose a real threat to the royal family.”
Of course, Morgan agreed with the author, saying that he felt the couple was “destroying a lot of the magic of the monarchy,” and “calling the royals a bunch of callous racists,” without any hard evidence to support the claims.
When Royal Racism Raised its Ugly Head
We believe that Morgan was more than likely pointing to the duke and duchess’ interview with Oprah Winfrey in March 2021 when they accused an unnamed member of the Royal family of making racist remarks about their then-unborn son’s skin color.
At the time, Harry had said that the Royal Family has never acknowledged some of the media’s negative and racist coverage of Markle. After the interview, according to Business Insider, a spokesperson for Buckingham Palace said that the issues the Sussexes raised were being taken “very seriously” and that the Royal family would address them in private.
Is Harry Trying to Modernize the Firm?
MSN reports that royal watchers beg to differ. The Sussexes aren’t “destroying the royal family” according to Grant Harold, former butler to Prince Charles. Harold, who worked at the palace from 2004 until 2011, knew Prince Harry personally, and said “I don’t believe for a second that Harry would intentionally try to destroy the monarchy,” but, he added, he would not put it past the prince to try and “modernize” it.
Harold also added that the Royal Family would probably use the Sussex’s input to improve the Monarchy, the same as any large company would do. He went on to explain that he was speaking from experience as he was often asked to give input to the HR Department while he worked there.
Prince William Accused of Failing Markle
US-based Royal commentator Kristen Meinzer said that Markle could not possibly be trying to “destroy the monarchy” as she was an advocate for humanitarian issues long before she met the prince. In fact, she spoke to Elle at the UN Women’s conference on International Women’s Day in 2015 and in 2016 about her experiences with racism.
She criticized Prince William in a tweet last year for speaking out against racism while failing to condemn the racism his own sister-in-law was having to endure. Be sure and stay on top of all Royal Family news and return here often for more news and updates.
