Remember when Prince Harry was telling everyone that he and his wife, Meghan Markle, had to escape the royal spotlight because the media glare was too much?
It reminded him of the tragic circumstances that led to the untimely death of his mother, Princess Diana.
His plight would be more sympathetic if he weren’t leaving the media hotspot of the U.K. and exchanging it for Los Angeles.
I can understand the people who bought what Harry and Meghan were selling when they first unveiled their plans.
But now? The Hollywood Royals have played their hand, and it all demonstrates that their reason for leaving the royal family behind had nothing to do with privacy or media coverage.
Quite simply, it’s all about Meghan Markle and her career.
If Prince Harry believes the British press was horrible to him and his wife, he hasn’t seen anything yet.
As for Meghan Markle? She’s spent more than enough time in Los Angeles and the showbiz side of American life. She knows exactly what’s coming.
Which makes you wonder why she ever allowed Prince Harry to peddle the tale that he wanted to pull his family out of the spotlight.
Meghan knew what her intentions were all along. The end game was never to get away from the media and lead a quiet, private life.
It was to move to the epicenter of the paparazzi world and earn millions of dollars in Hollywood.
Perhaps “Hollywood Harry” is in denial. Could he really be so foolish?
There have already been reports of mournful phone-calls between Prince Harry and his father, Prince Charles. Harry reportedly feels incredibly guilty about being so far away while his relatives suffer from the coronavirus and struggle to keep the royal family together during the pandemic.
His brother, Prince William, has stepped up in the absence of Prince Charles and Queen Elizabeth. Already the future king and his wife, Kate Middleton, have enhanced their stellar reputations by rising to the challenge during their country’s time of need.
At the moment, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle remain in lockdown in Los Angeles. They can enjoy relative peace for as long as that lasts, but there’s no doubt that once this lockdown ends, the Hollywood paparazzi will be out in force.
When that happens, we’ll see how long Prince Harry can put up with real celebrity media coverage. If his response to the British tabloids is anything to go by, it won’t go well.
