Meghan Markle Demands Respect

One way or another, she’s going to get it.

At eleven years of age, Meghan was in the news. She objected to the feminization of dish cleaning in a Proctor and Gamble commercial for Ivory dish soap. After all, one doesn’t need to be female to wash anything.

This little girl wrote to the company making her objections. To everyone’s surprise, the company changed the word “woman” to “people.” Even back then, she was making her point known. Meghan is a force — she is fearless.

How on earth did the British think that someone this forceful would continue to take abuse and vitriol? Someone like this will either make the behavior unnecessary — or they will leave it behind.

Guess which one she chose?

Honestly, let’s get real. Let’s look at the point of the British. They had a handsome prince walking around their world for so many years.

He was single all through his twenties.

And you know what? He couldn’t find one English rose in all of the British empires that they have left to marry! Not a single one. And let me tell you, he was presented to each and every one of them. The eligible ones, that is…

Then he up and marries an American. A divorced woman, from the United States, all the way across the Atlantic ocean.

It’s just like Downton Abbey all over again, only she didn’t come over like Lady Cora Grantham, as a rich heiress, all dewy-eyed and virginal-maybe even a little silly — with several lessons to learn.

Nope.

Meghan was a fully grown worldly woman. An actress. This was not her first rodeo. How American is that?

And she’s half-black! OMG! Remember the Alamo! (Sorry, wrong war.)

Batten down the hatches!

This is why some of the British really hate Meghan.

The Hate

They can’t blame their perfect red-headed prince for their anger, their embarrassment, and their upper lip, Brexit, alt-right pride.

So Meghan has to get the brunt of the abuse. We all watched it happen. We read about it during their engagement, marriage, pregnancy (did you know that it was fake?) and current life.

I saw some comments on Facebook that would curl your toes. First, they said she wasn’t pregnant. Then after her baby’s birth, they said she was fat. I couldn’t help it. After that, I stated that she will still be rich. I have since disconnected from such envious trolls. It was getting my blood pressure up.

Old Age Racism

It still comes back to the same thing.

She’s black.

She doesn’t have to wash dishes ever again. (Eleven-year-old Meghan must have had some serious ESP.)

She’s so damn rich.

She’s had it. She’s done. She doesn’t have to take anything from these people.

And Prince Harry is getting an education in the real-life privilege he’s had in contrast to the racism and insults that his wife has received from the media and other megxit fans.

He must have been shocked. Shocked and amazed. I’m willing to bet that he was protected from the reality of true red racism. It must have seemed like a vague concept to Prince Harry, like utility bills, receipts, and grocery stores.

And if he didn’t have one before, and we have no way of knowing, he’s developing a spine.

Prince Harry

I can see it now, the words rolling off of his beautifully, enunciated, upper-crust British tongue.

“He said what? I thought he was a bloody bright chap! We always got on well, I thought.” or “She seemed so nice back at Wetherby? So pretty and funny. She called our baby what?”

But Meghan takes Harry and Archie with her.

This is what the British and those misguided racist Americans need to understand.

When you attack Meghan, you are attacking Prince Harry.

When you attack baby Archie (hard to believe, but actual adults have attacked this baby) you are attacking Prince Harry’s son, his flesh and blood.

What were they thinking? Did they believe that he would wake up to suddenly realize that his wife was half-black and his son was one-fourth black and then just leave, pretending that it was all just a bad memory, like some interlude that was entered into much too quickly?

And then, we suppose, he was to find the true English beauty that he was supposed to marry in the first place only-if he needed to be like his dad, she would need to be like 19 and we all know how that worked out…

In case you didn’t know; it didn’t.

But Harry was no spring chicken. He was not stupid or innocent. Harry, if I need to remind you, was no child.

Some will say that Prince Harry was misguided, a little slow, maybe even a bit of a lovesick fool. They will say that he is like his dad, who ultimately did end up with his true love by virtue of never leaving her even after his marriage to Diana.

Maybe.

Prince Harry will also find out who his true friends are. There have been many occasions when his associates should have spoken out but they did not. The feeling of betrayal must cut deep.

This makes it more attractive for him to leave the Royal Family and it’s trappings behind. He could even feel that up till now, his life has been false. Prince Harry is only 35. If he lives his full measure of years — say, even to the age of his grandmother — he could make age 93.

He will remember.

The Future

It is interesting to note that Prince Harry was concerned about the safety of his wife and his son.

This is not unusual. Anyone who hasn’t seen the amount of hate directed towards his family is simply not paying attention.

It is demonstrably evil in scope.

All of us have seen the results of the “Jews will not replace us rally” in Charlottesville, the terrorist shooting attacks in Christchurch, New Zealand, the El Paso shooting at Walmart, and the Manchester Arena Bombing at the Ariana Grande concert. There are many more.

All of these are the result of abundant, forceful hate. So this plan to remove themselves from the limelight makes sense.

As for Meghan? She appears to be unmistakably strong.

If it means that they must leave the Royal Family environment, Great Britain, and anywhere else where there is rampant ill will, then so be it.

It is reported that the Queen herself is meeting with her son and both grandsons. They have, it is said, 72 hours to fix this. It indicates that they will use their considerable power to stop the madness one way or another.

But keep in mind that no one has to accept this behavior.

And they won’t.
