Prince Harry and Meghan Markle sat down with Oprah to discuss the trials and tribulations of being in the one percent. Sorry, we don't feel sorry for you.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have become as divisive as any subject on this side of the coronavirus.
The British press will have you fully believing that Harry is a simple, naive boy who’s been taken captive by the heartless, social-climbing Meghan Markle. She’s clearly just in the relationship for fame and money, and she will toss Prince Harry to the curb as soon she doesn’t need him anymore.
Meanwhile, the liberal American press will have you believe that Meghan Markle is a goddess sent from the wokest cloud in heaven, here to rid the royal family of their ignorance and bring peace and justice back to the galaxy. And Prince Harry? He’s the knight in shining armor who will protect his queen on her journey.
Yep. Or maybe they’re just ultra-rich and getting richer by appearing on TV.
Maybe they’re just privileged kids who may indeed have been treated poorly by a mega-wealthy royal family. Either way, they’re in a different stratosphere than us, so why do we even care?
Did Meghan make Kate Middleton cry, or did Kate make Meghan cry?! According to Meghan, Kate was the guilty party!
What are we in 7th grade? Who cares.
There was only one part of this two-hour blah-fest that mattered in the slightest. Meghan Markle claimed that ‘someone from the Palace’ was concerned about what color her son Archie’s skin would be.
She didn’t say if it was a member of the royal family, a friend, or a janitor. All she said was that it would be ‘damaging’ if she revealed who said it.
Check out a snippet of the ‘jaw-dropping’ interview:
That is awful. Truly. No one should be concerned about the color of her son’s skin. And if someone from the royal family did indeed have that concern, they should be put fully on blast. But they weren’t, so we’re just left to take her word for it.
And that’s fine because it’s not difficult to believe that the stuffy, ancient royal family might have some racism stuck in their pasty white skin.
But even if Archie were a bright purple baby with glowing yellow eyes, he’d still live a life of privilege beyond what any of us could imagine.
Prince Harry really got deep into his sob story at one point during the interview. The would-be prince got comfortable enough with his billionaire interviewer to actually have the gall to say:
My family literally cut me off financially, and I had to afford security for us.
Dude, you’re 36. Grow up.
You should be paying for your life like the rest of us. You’ve had the ultimate privilege of literally being born into royalty. Even if they cut you off, they gave you the name, title, and fame that set you up for life.
That’s what allowed you and your wife to sign deals with Netflix and Spotify worth well over $100 million.
He was also left a ‘sizeable’ inheritance from his late mother, Diana.
Does he really expect us to feel bad for him in a global pandemic that has made the world’s richest far richer and the rest of us far poorer?
This global pandemic has caused one of the biggest wealth transfers in history. Billionaires like Jeff Bezos, Elon Musk, and Bill Gates increased their wealth to unimaginable heights while the average person is just trying not to get evicted.
Massive corporations like Amazon, Wal-Mart, and Target have gotten more business during lockdowns while small businesses were forced to shut down, even if they provided similar services.
Now millionaires (probably billionaires) like Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are getting millions of dollars for appearing on television for a few hours.
Yes, the royal family is probably racist, and yes, they should change. But whether they change or not won’t get your job back. Meghan and Harry are spending more on security than you’ll likely ever make in a lifetime.
They live on an entirely different planet than the rest of us, and they’re going to be fine even if someone made them uncomfortable!
It’s even more uncomfortable to not know when our jobs are coming back or what millions of people will do when their unemployment runs out.
Let’s stop wasting our precious life energy by making these rich folks even richer.
I promise they’re not going to pay attention to you when you have a hard time.
