Before watching Monday night’s Oprah interview on ITV I was more anti than pro Meghan and Harry.

After watching it I was more sympathetic to Meghan and Harry.

Yes, Meghan is a confident and assertive woman – but why should that be a problem in the 21st century?

It must have been a very daunting thing to join the British Royal Family.

They are a stiff lot and I dont imagine the expression of emotions is tolerated too much.

Add to that, leaving your own country abd coming to a new one where you have no family and very few, friends.

And, despite what Meghan’s asshole of a father says, the Brits are a supremely racist lot.

Many of them hate Africans and Asians and we Irish have suffered great racism in the UK for a long time.

I admire the queen as a woman who has been very faithful to her duties.

But I think all these other royals, especially the younger ones, are just hangers-on and living off the taxpayer.

If the monarchy is to be retained it should be ruthlessly slimmed down and become the kind of monarchy we see in some modern European countries.

The treatment meted out to Diana has bound to have left a profound mark on Harry.

He saw a repeat of this in the Firm’s behaviour to Meghan.

I am not saying that Meghan and Harry are blameless. Of course they brought all their baggage.

But they brought to a family and an institution with enough baggage to sink the Titanic.

I wish Harry and Meghan well. But I have a fear the marriage will not last the course?


In a statement on behalf of the Queen that was released Tuesday evening, U.K. time, the Palace said: “The whole family is saddened to learn the full extent of how challenging the last few years have been for Harry and Meghan.

“The issues raised, particularly that of race, are concerning. Whilst some recollections may vary, they are taken very seriously and will be addressed by the family privately. Harry, Meghan and Archie will always be much loved family members.”


This 49 minute video is both disturbing and thought-provoking.
