Prince Philip Is Right To Be ‘Disappointed’ by Meghan Markle and Prince Harry

  • It’s safe to say that Prince Philip knows a thing or two regarding royal life and service to one’s country.
  • His views on Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are absolutely correct.
  • Sadly, it seems Harry will go down in history as half the man his grandfather is.

To many casual observers, Prince Philip is the loveable husband of Queen Elizabeth, known for putting his foot in his mouth with some of his remarks.

Considered well-meaning yet painfully old fashioned, he’s the embarrassing grandparent you don’t want to take to a restaurant or to meet the new in-laws.

What many people don’t know, although Netflix show The Crown has helped to highlight, is that Prince Philip was once a well-regarded navy officer with a bright future in the service.

A bright future that he gave up to marry into the British royal family when he said “I do” at Westminster Abbey on November 20, 1947.

Prince Philip is a beloved royal today, but that wasn’t always the case

I’ll admit, I’ve always had a keen interest in Prince Philip, and indeed royals from that era. I also have to smile when I see Meghan Markle fans complain about the treatment of their idol by the media.

Honestly, the girl doesn’t know how good she had it as a royal.

Despite being a respected member of the British navy, Prince Philip was quite simply deemed not good enough for the young Princess Elizabeth. According to royal nanny Marion Crawford:

He was, in essence, a prince without a kingdom — he had no financial standing, and he was considered a foreigner, despite having been born and educated in England and serving in the British Royal Navy. Further complicating his acceptance was the fact that his sisters had married German noblemen with Nazi links.

He had no financial clout and was looked upon suspiciously by the British media and aristocratic society of the day, treated in a manner that would have Meghan Markle curling up into a ball and crying, most likely.

And yet, Prince Philip persevered.

No doubt he’ll be torn apart for his views, but Philip is correct about Meghan Markle

In today’s world, much of what Prince Philip says is considered politically incorrect, and I admit, he does exhibit the kind of views you’d expect from someone born in 1921 (let that sink in for a minute. Prince Philip was 18 years old when Hitler invaded Poland).

However, his views on Meghan Markle are absolutely correct. Royal biographer Ingrid Seward said:

I think he’s very, very disappointed because I think he feels he gave up his naval career in order to stand by the Queen and help the monarchy. And why can’t Meghan just give up her acting career, support her husband and support the monarchy? As he used to say to Diana, this is not a popularity contest. This is all of us working together. He just cannot understand why she couldn’t support Harry and help him rather than wanting to have her voice.

I’m in no doubt that “woke” feminists are literally foaming at the mouth after reading that, but it doesn’t change the fact that Prince Philip is spot on.

We need more people like Prince Philip, despite what his detractors may say.

Putting aside his embarrassing tendency to express the kind of societal views you’d expect from someone of his advanced years, what cannot be denied is that Prince Philip has served both the country and his wife, Queen Elizabeth, with honor and dedication over the past 70 years or so.

That he struggles to comprehend the actions of his grandson, Prince Harry, is a damning indictment of both Harry and Meghan Markle. Ms. Seward claimed:

He has struggled greatly, for example, with what he sees as his grandson Harry’s dereliction of duty, giving up his homeland and everything he cared about for a life of self-centered celebrity in North America. He has found it hard to understand exactly what it was that made his grandson’s life so unbearable. As far as Philip was concerned, Harry and Meghan had everything going for them: a beautiful home, a healthy son, and a unique opportunity to make a global impact with their charity work.

He’s not wrong, you know. Prince Philip may be turning 100 years old next June, but the old boy still talks a lot of sense.

Prince Harry could do a lot worse than listen for a change, instead of lecturing.

  1. I totally agree 1000%….She wouldve been loved by Britain and many others had she taken the time to do what was asked of her and at least try to understand. She didnt even stick around long enough to get to know the family or even understand what it truly means to serve the public. Diana served the public and I feel she wouldve done so for years to come if her husband hadnt been in love with someone else. Diana didnt break out right away. She actually tried to make it work but Charles was in love with Camilla, point blank so what else was she to do. Thats not the same as Meghan. Meghan cares about Megahn. Comparing her to Diana is ridiculous. She will never be a Diana.

  2. Of all the people who have been hurt so deeply by this whole sordid affair with Meghan and Harry, it’s Prince Philip and the Queen. It just breaks my heart. Even though they live in the lap of luxury, they really do get out there and do real work. I can’t believe how sturdy they are at their ages. But how Meghan and Harry could show such hideous disrespect to the Queen when she is 94 is beyond belief. Just that alone should hav e shamed H&M enough to keep a stiff upper lip, as the British like to say, and carry on.
    There is no sense of sacrifice. Now I am going to tell you about my mother.

    My mother, born in 1912, was a Milwaukee German. She met my father, born in 1910 on a cattle ranch in central Oregon, in the early 1930’s when. Was working his way through engineering school. They married in 1933 smack dab during the depression. There was no work so mu parents drove a 1920 Ford to the ranch in Oregon with a house that had no electricity, no running water(pump in back yard), no toilets, and no central heat. My grandmother, in her fifties, died a year later. Two of her five children were 11 and 13. For the next six years my mother cooked, cleaned and did laundry for my father, his four siblings, my grandfather and great-grand father AND NEVER COMPLAINED. She did her duty. Meghan, are yoi reading this?

    • Yes Meghan. I hope you’re reading this because I don’t believe you know what duty and sacrifice is. You were raised very spoiled and continue to be self-centered and about yourself. Your not kidding anyone with your fake act. Only Harry fell for your act, poor lad.

  3. Your article is right on! Prince Philip has witnessed first hand the hurt and misery caused by Edward and Wallis in 1937. They hurt not only the monarchy but the English people as well and never in a million years would they ever expect it to be repeated! Then came MM and within a 2 yr period had created a similar catastrophe with his own grandson. Meghan and her “be kind” platform is nothing more than hypocrisy she is dangerous and most unworthy! It is sad that Prince Phillip after living a long life of service has to witness this repeat performance only this time there is a child involved and it is his great grandson.

    • Yes, it is very sad. Very, very sad. I think eventually the Brits will heal from this. They have a lot to look forward to with Charles, William and then George. Hail Britannia! I love you Brits, you’re the best.

  4. AGREE! Yes yes yes! My Hawaiian mother-in-law is 96yrs, a WWII vet (1st Hawaiian female resident to enlist.), a Sr Olympian & she is this 65 yr old lady’s role model.
    She was married to 1 awesome Irish American 70+ yrs! They were brave & steady & loving…together. He is missed.
    She was one of “those baseball ladies” like movie LEAGUE OF THEIR OWN w/Tom Hanks…the Buena Park Lynx (? Hmm early here).,.,
    Thank You & Much Aloha for great human from one of the “last great generations” cuz it is now just a fact more than opinion due to ACTIONS!

  5. I read elsewhere that a second cousin of Harry, who lives in America, has said Megan and Harry will do well in America as Americans are easily pleased.I personally think,that like the Brits. They will also struggle with being lectured to by these entitled pair,who say one thing and do a different thing themselves. Megan wants power and control. Harry is no better. He is weak.

    • I know she was a suitcase girl. I’m not impressed. She’s trying to ride Harry’s RF coat tails. We don’t care about him either. I only know the “news” because I check out the DM.
