Despite what fans of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry would have us believe, the U.S. public isn't falling over themselves to welcome the couple. In fact, it seems they're actually uniting against them.
When U.S. President Donald Trump is seemingly under attack from all sides over his handling of the coronavirus pandemic, Meghan Markle has accomplished the impossible.
She’s managed to get the American people rallying behind their beleaguered president.
Is America’s reaction to the faux royal couple an indication of how popular they will be in the U.S.?
This might be another decision that “Simply” Harry and his “American Princess” haven’t fully thought through.
The question of security arose soon after Harry and Meghan announced their LA move to their cult-like fanbase.
The bill to keep the plebs away from Prince Harry and Meghan Markle is reported to be around $10 million per year.
Up until now, both Harry and Meghan were looked after by the UK taxpayer by way of the Metropolitan Police.
On April 1st, this ceases to be the case.
It’s also no coincidence that as soon as Canadian authorities made it clear they would no longer cover this cost, Harry and Meghan ditched Canada like a bad habit.
Their time in Canada was nothing more than an opportunity. They took advantage of what the country could offer them before they moved to the United States.
Despite reports to the contrary, Harry and Meghan would have happily accepted financial help from the U.S. government.
Despite what the sad souls in the Sussex Squad will have you believe, it seems there isn’t much appetite for Prince Harry or Meghan Markle in America.
Certainly not enough to want to see their tax dollars pay to keep the faux royals hidden safely away in their mansion.
Norman Baker, the former Home Office Minister, and royal author, sums up both Harry and Meghan’s latest move perfectly:
We can’t have a situation in which members of the Royal Family can choose to live anywhere in the world, however dangerous, and expect us to pay. The dangers in LA are much more significant than in the backwoods of Windsor.
Meghan Markle will be able to figure out life in Los Angeles. She was born in the U.S. She’s been a ladder-climbing, career-over-everything type since her younger days.
But how will the young Prince cope? It may be fun for a while, being the center of attention in Los Angeles. But like all pleasant holidays, eventually, everyone wants to come home to the life they know and love.
How long before Prince Harry realizes his childish, reactionary rebellion against his family has cost him the only life he’s ever known?
