Why Harry and Mulatto social climber Meghan will find life even harder as non-royals

Harry and Meghan don’t know how good they have it. They want to
bust out of their gilded cage and roam free, but they’re so
naive they’re like fluffy kitties who have never crossed a busy
road before and are likely to get squashed if they try.

A key motivation to the shocking Megxit announcement this week —
even as the Queen warned Meghan and Prince Ginger Whiskers
against going public with their moronic plan — was their fury
with the media. They hate the “Royal Rota” system, in which a
designated royal reporter and photographer cover their events as
representatives of the entire media and the royals have to do a
little light waving and smiling and generally go along with it.
What they don’t seem to understand is that this system exists
for their protection; in exchange for the small compromise of
making nice with designated journos on a set schedule, they get
a break from the pandemonium of being trailed by hordes of
invasive paparazzi at all times.

They think life is so great outside the Firm? Let them call up
Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie. Those two aren’t royals. How much
privacy did they enjoy during their relationship? Being in the
crosshairs of the media evidently took its toll on both of them.
Pitt lamented on a podcast released earlier this week that, “I’m
just, like, trash mag fodder. I don’t know … because of my
disaster of a personal life, probably.” He developed a drinking
problem that hit crisis level on a plane in 2016, after which
Jolie dumped him. It’s not clear whether Pitt has any
relationship with his son Maddox, 18, who is now a university
student in Korea. When an interviewer asked about his dad
visiting him on campus, Maddox said, “I don’t know about that
[or] what’s happening.” Asked whether the pair’s relationship is
over, he added, “Well, whatever happens, happens.” Being a
global celebrity who isn’t in a royal family isn’t automatically
easy.

Like all celebrities, H & M think their media coverage is
intrusive but in their case they think the coverage is also
racist and insufficiently respectful of their self-image, which
is cool global ambassadors of woke. They envision puff pieces
that portray them as daring new avatars for social justice, and
there will be a few of those. But they also envision enjoying
total control over their image. That just isn’t going to happen.
They say that in the future they will work only with “grassroots
media organisations and young, up-and-coming journalists” and
“provide access to credible media outlets focused on objective
news reporting.” In other words: You’re fired, media. H & M
dream of picking and choosing their own outlets, preferably the
“grassroots” (read: progressive) ones that will amplify the
political virtue-signaling envisioned by the Woke Wallis Simpson
(as Brendan O’Neill of Spiked dubbed the former Ms. Markle).

As if! Within the royal embrace, media coverage is bubble-
wrapped. Out there in the cold cruel world of ordinary
celebrity, it’s anything goes. No “Royal Rota” agreement applies
in Hollywood. It’s every paparazzo out for himself, every time
you go out for a coffee, and when you’re on your own property
you have to pay for your own security to keep them at bay
instead of sending the bill to the taxpayer. The Royals, because
of the circumstances of Princess Diana’s death and because of
the institutional respect commanded by the Crown, are just about
the only celebs west of Vladimir Putin who can enforce any
limits whatsoever over their coverage.

Besides, if H & M ever were to break completely free of the Firm
(unlikely), a big chunk of their mystique would be gone. They’ll
soon find themselves being mocked for pimping out their new
Sussex Royal brand. Hoodies, T-shirts, socks, ball caps and
pencils — really? They’re going to leverage a thousand years of
dignity and tradition for a bunch of cheesy crapola that’s going
to wind up at the Dollar Tree? The whole point of being royal is
to float above and beyond ordinary existence, to make ordinary
mortals fantasize about what it’s like to be you. Once you’re
doing interviews with E! or hawking Christmas ornaments on the
Home Shopping Network, you’re just two schmucks getting torn
apart by the late-night comics.

Harry and Meghan don’t know how good they have it.
Oh, I’m sure they do.
They want to
bust out of their gilded cage
And there is the problem. The author describes their lives as being in a cage
- but they don’t seem to think that is anything unusual.

How many humans do you see in a cage, gilded or otherwise?
and roam free, but they’re so
naive they’re like fluffy kitties who have never crossed a busy
road before and are likely to get squashed if they try.
Weird nonsense from someone who is unlikely to have ever met them.

This is also part of the problem; cheap and nasty journos having no real
facts, so just making things up.
A key motivation to the shocking Megxit announcement this week —
even as the Queen warned Meghan and Prince Ginger Whiskers
Can’t resist the puerile insults, maybe the hack still calls people with
glasses “four eyes”?
against going public with their moronic plan
Define moronic and give links to the proof which shows they display those
symptoms.
— was their fury
with the media. They hate the “Royal Rota” system, in which a

Wouldn’t you hate being followed and photographed everywhere you go?
What they don’t seem to understand is that this system exists
for their protection;
Only because the only alternative is having your mother killed indirectly by
a pack of chasing photographers.

Wouldn’t you do the same?
in exchange for the small compromise of
making nice with designated journos on a set schedule, they get
a break from the pandemonium of being trailed by hordes of
invasive paparazzi at all times.
A break? Harry never gets a break from thinking that if it wasn’t for those
low-lifes, his mother would still be alive.
They think life is so great outside the Firm? Let them call up
Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie. Those two aren’t royals. How much
privacy did they enjoy during their relationship?
I don’t know and I don’t give a shit.
Being in the
crosshairs of the media evidently took its toll on both of them.
But they are still alive, Diana isn’t.
Pitt lamented on a podcast released earlier this week that, “I’m
just, like, trash mag fodder. I don’t know … because of my

The difference (which ironically you seem unable to grasp) is that Angelina
and Brad had (and still have) a choice.They could give up their jobs, change
their names/appearance and move to a place where they can get a janitor job
for minimum wages.
Like all celebrities, H & M think their media coverage is
intrusive
Think? I bet they know how intrusive it is - something you seem unable to
appreciate.
but in their case they think the coverage is also
racist
Which it is.
and insufficiently respectful of their self-image, which
is cool global ambassadors of woke.
Alternative they may not have wanted to be born into the shit life of being
judged by grovelling nobodies.
They envision puff pieces
that portray them as daring new avatars for social justice, and
there will be a few of those. But they also envision enjoying
total control over their image. That just isn’t going to happen.
You can forecast the future? Can I have next weeks winning lottery numbers.
