Meghan Markle & Prince Harry Get Preachy Again With TIME 100 Talk

  • Yes, Meghan and Harry once again appeared on a virtual conference of some sort this week.
  • And yes, once again, they talked a whole lot but said absolutely nothing.
  • This is becoming a trend with the Sussexes. A lot of buzzwords, but little by way of actionable content.

As the most recent TIME Magazine TIME100 Talks series curated by Meghan Markle and Prince Harry came to an end, one thing was perfectly clear.

Meghan must be ready to hold certain sections of her own fanbase accountable for their actions.

Both Meghan Markle and Prince Harry were quick to speak out against the state of the digital landscape in their presentation, but until they take the first step of owning up to having one of the most toxic fanbases on the internet today, there’s no way we can take either of them seriously.

What did Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have to say?

Speaking to TIME’s editor in chief Edward Felsenthal, Meghan commented that:

Both of us realized that we can continue to champion these things that we’re passionate about. We can continue to do this work to try to affect change and help the people who need it most or the communities or environments that need it most, but it’s almost like you’re taking two steps forward and five steps backward if you can’t get to the root cause of the problem. Which at this point right now we see in a large way as a lot of what’s happening in the tech space.

Prince Harry followed up by commenting:

What our job is, especially throughout these conversations, is to get people to listen to the experts and for them to explain how what’s happening in the online world is affecting the world. It is not restricted to certain platforms or certain social media conversations. This is a global crisis: a global crisis of hate, a global crisis of misinformation, and a global health crisis.

I could continue, but you get the idea.

A lot of buzzwords and “save the world” claptrap was the order of the day

While I’m fairly sure that everyone would support the notion of a better world, be it digitally or otherwise, I’m afraid that what Meghan Markle and Prince Harry had to say, and have been saying of late, amounts to nothing more than fanciful nonsense.

I hear lots of talking, and I see lots of faux-enlightened nodding of heads while groups of primarily wealthy, privileged individuals all massage each others ego’s with word-salads and virtual high-fives.

Where’s the action?

Prince Harry could do worse than look at his brother, Prince William, and the things he has made happen on the issue of climate change.

The future King is doing a whole lot more than just talking about the issue. He’s stepping up and making a difference with actions, not just words.

Meghan Markle cannot be taken seriously on the issue of the digital landscape unless she deals with her own problems first

There is a whole lot wrong with the digital landscape, and there’s a lot of faceless bullies out there who think they can get away with their actions from the relative safety of their keyboards.

And I have zero time for bullies and racists in any form, be they Sussex Squad members or those who bash Meghan Markle for her appearance or race.

I know that Meghan, just like Duchess Kate Middleton, faces attacks from all angles on her appearance constantly. It’s disgraceful.

However, the question has to be asked – can we take Meghan Markle and anything she says seriously when she has one of the angriest, toxic, and most threatening fanbases on the internet today?

A fanbase that actively creates their own “hit lists” of journalists that have dared speak out against Meghan and Harry?

Absolutely not.

Get your own house in order before preaching to the rest of us, Meghan.

  1. Exactly all these two know how to do is preach from their castle! They show up to a few charity events Which they fly into with the charities Own funds, with no donation Of their own, stay long enough for a photo OP and leave! Often just 10 min with every excuse to get out. They don’t hang out with folks unless you’re rich and famous or again a fake photo opportunity.

  2. I was born and raised in the USA my mother started us on watching the Royals from afar by having tea parties, garden parties, being raised with the expression “Manners Matter” , how to set a formal dinner table, knowing and using each utensil appropriately, we even were woke up 4:00 am dressed in Sunday best including hats to watch Princess Di get married. It’s like Harry being a rebel brought home the rebel and say look what I can do to our family by bringing this girl to our dinner table. As I stated manners matter and it seems Ms Markle left hers at the door, Harry thought it would be cool for a bit but didn’t think about long term when he grew up enough to realize manners do matter even just the basics this gal doesn’t have any. Her world or goal was the celebrity world and there is not hardly any left that you can look up to that won’t bring you down in some sort of fashion. Celebrities today seem to think the more shocking they can be the better, or how big their portfolio is seems to be more important than what morals we were taught in church and by some parents. It’s a shame the Harry fell for her act hook line and sinker as they both talk about how great they are and we need to do as they say not as they do. Don’t get me wrong we still follow the Royals but we certainly know who has class and it’s certainly not Ms. Markle and now Harry is just guilty by association. It boils down to manners, not the wealth & power. These two are not people that anyone should look up to, if you do you should set your goals much higher than what they have to offer.

    • Your way of thinking is what I love about the British—-fine manners. I am ashamed that Americans have become so crude. It wasn’t always that way. We were taught proper table manners in the old days. Everything in this country changed in the 1960s, spurred on by the radical left who encouraged rebellion against EVERYTHING. First it was Vietnam, then the military, then the government, then the schools, then the parents, then sexual morals, and then the church. Being the anarchists they are, everything was turned upside down. You NEVER heard the f-word until Hollywood dismantled the censor boards and all hell broke loose in the movies. Now, sexual promiscuity is the order of the day.

      The left has always shown derision towards all things traditional and decent. I still get out my china and silver and serve a proper dinner. People LOVE IT. In California, their idea of a dinner party is barbecuing with paper plates. This is the world Meghan came from.

      • 100% agree!! Our family does the dinners as well (of course my parents did it much more than we do) we try to do it for each of our birthday dinners & other special occasions but I’m lucky enough to still have my parents around and they haven’t given up on doing the Holidays at their home. It certainly makes a difference on what type of company you keep bringing home someone with no manners certainly didn’t happen. Our daughter I know will continue on with keeping up with the traditions once she marries and has her own family now the boys we still pray about that!!
        There certainly isn’t anything that I find fascinating about Mz Markle & it seems Harry was just trying to prove a point that he was his own man (which I’m sure that’s why Prince William brought up his concerns) I did the same when my brother was marrying & the vote is still out on his wife. That’s just what family does and I’m sorry that William received such back lash for his concerns. Meghan reminds me of the girl that just loves to stir the pot, cause controversy and loves herself a bit too much!! I’m certainly proud of my up bringing and I feel comfortable talking to billionaires or the poorest of the poor. it certainly is nice to hear about others with impeccable manners and aren’t ashamed about them because you are certainly right about everything you said growing up Irene!! When reading your comments Meghan and Jane Fonda came to mind of course I’ll give credit to Jane for at least being a better actress

  3. “I hear lots of talking……groups of primarily wealthy, privileged individuals all massage each other’s egos with word-salads and virtue high fives.” Aubrey, this is what we call the liberal elite here in America. They are completely and totally full of bull—. For people with such concerns about the world, it is stunning how very unaware or concerned they are with how their big ideas turned into laws screw up ordinary people. They make people miserable.

  4. Are those professional speakers and organizations realize or aware of her toxic fanbase? I am dumbfounded that they continue allows speaking of the same issue and do nothing to clean up her fanbase. Yes, Aubrey, words are cheap and action usually costs money and time of which they don’t willing to sacrifice.

  5. Harry saying “a crisis of hate” “a crisis of misinformation”. Harry don’t throw any stones. You need to look no further than your WIFEY. She’s the impediment of hate and misinformation!! That’s why we don’t like her it has nothing to do with race

      • Meant embodiment. I get so mad knowing Harry has been scammed. She is blackmailing that family in some way I just feel it. Maybe she knows about prince Andrew being a yacht girl. Can’t place my finger on why the queen would let Harry marry a twice divorced woman
