A documentary by the British Independent Television company on the Sussexes’ Southern Africa Royal Tour has just been shown on Independent Television. It did lay bare what the royal couple have experienced until they took legal action against the Gutter on Sunday, the Daily slime Mirror and the sewer Sun.
The overriding impression is the lies that the newspapers have made, which the Duke stated in his statement in South Africa and the Duchess concurred in the documentary. She was asked what she felt about their situation and her response was very revealing.
She said when she first met the Duke her friends in the UK said he was a great guy, but the British tabloids would destroy her. She naively felt it could not be that bad. She said she has tried to develop the British sensibility of keeping stiff upper lip about all the lies that have been written and say nothing, but that was destroying her internally. She said the press has to play fair. If she did something wrong, she would put up her hand and say sorry, but it hurts when lies are deliberately told and no attempts are made to correct them.
She was asked what to do next. Her answer was that marriage life is meant to be happy, but not this way with constant attack by liars. She said, she is taking it one day at a time and consoles herself with her husband and son, whom she described as the best.
The Duke was asked about his relationship with his brother. He said the relationship is okay, but as happens with siblings a few things happen sometimes. He loves his brother and knows his brother loves him too and would always be there for each other. Now he has a family to protect and look after, as any man would do for theirs. They are on different paths and have not seen each other for a while. I think he knows something about the wicked machinations going on at Kensington Palace against his wife, he is not telling.
Autumn 2018 after returning from their Royal Tour, there were some newspaper journalists who were boldly claiming that the wedding honeymoon of the Sussexes was over. That was because the tabloids and serious newspapers like the Daily Telegraph, Sunday Telegraph, the Times and the Sunday Times journalists, not necessarily only the royal reporters, were quickly off with lies and attacks against the Duchess for no reason at all other than she had had a very successful Royal Tour to Oceania, which overshadowed her sister in law. We all remember the lies that began with Robert ‘the slob’ Jobson and continued until her Wimbledon visit with her friends.
But then, there was no honeymoon at all. The Mail Group – daily Gutter and Gutter on Sunday – have continued their determination to attack and undermine the Duchess by whatever means and at every turn. Unfortunately, they have been aided by the Duchess’s own estranged idiotic father and demon demented half-siblings.
The day after the Royal Wedding, when the world was rejoicing with the Sussexes, the Daily Gutter, as part of its coverage, used its front page to write an editorial criticising the newly titled Duchess. In the editorial headlined, MEGHAN MARKLE’S MANIFESTO, they criticised her feminist views and warned her against dabbling in politics. It was surprising because her only known political pronouncements were on Trump and voting for Mrs. Clinton. They have never stopped.
Even after they sued the three tabloids and most have kept their distance, up popped Camilla Tominey in a Daily Telegraph article last week about the Sussexes. She claimed, the Sussexes are now isolated from the Royal Family and that was according to her source. This is how she starts her lies and other idiots pick up as truth and publish as facts.
If they are isolated from the Royal Family, which is a big one and made up of individuals, which of them gave her that story? And which of them are isolated from the Sussexes? We should remember that she and the tabloid journalists have links to the staff and handlers of the Cambridges. They feed them with dirt to spread about the Sussexes. If she began this unsubstantiated story and others picked it up, then that creates a state of crises around the Sussexes, even though that is a lie. That was what the Sussexes were referring to, lies.
Last Thursday, a senior editor with the Daily Gutter was reviewing the next day’s newspapers at Sky News Television. He read from his own newspaper of the lavish coverage they had given to the Cambridges’ Pakistan Royal Tour. He was full of praise for Kate the Duchess of Cambridge saying she has grown nicely into her role. His reviewing colleague then referred to the Sussexes’ South Africa Royal Tour, which he said was going nicely until their condemnation statement and legal case against the Gutter on Sunday. Thereupon the senior editor interjected that he does not really like the Duchess, because she preached too much. That meant as a conservative journalist, he totally disapproves of the Duchess’s views on women empowerment, education for girls and employment for women. The journalists on both his newspapers, the two Gutters, wish the Duchess of Sussex would keep her mouth shut and behave like her sister in law. That fortunately for us, is not in her DNA.
Just today in the Sunday Times, Royah Nikka, the only person of colour among the royal reporters, wrote something she said was exclusive. The story was made out of the snippets of the documentary shown earlier and shown fully today. Her claim was that the Sussexes were taking a break for six weeks from royal duties. They would be going to spend the time with the Duchess’s mother in Los Angeles. If that was not a security nightmare for the Royal Family, what is? There is no place to hide and security would be very risky. It would also be a gargantuan security headache for the mother. Where is the space to accommodate the family and the accompanying security details?
Los Angeles would be a boon for paparazzi and any number of freewheeling journalists to make their life even worse than staying at Frogmore Cottage. But then, that is the fake news these dubious people start and then spread all over the world within seconds. Before ten o’clock in the morning, British Autumn, news media in the UK and Australia were reporting it, just from one unsubstantiated source. As the Duchess said in the documentary, even when these people are corrected, they continue to misrepresent stories about her.
In the documentary, she seemed to be tired with the UK. If it was not for her husband and son, she might decide this was not the place for her. She wants to be happy and not vehemently lied about so much. She is living life each day as it comes and that is no life for anyone, royal or not.
One hopes that they would summon a mighty courage somehow somewhere to combat these troubling times. Some people in the British media have been determined to destroy the marriage by constantly faking news about her. She has been forging along with fortitude and hopefully, the support she has in the global space would encourage her to push on. Giving up now would hand over victory to racists, bigots, and idiots in the newspapers.
A lot of young women and girls have pinned their hopes on her. Some women and girls in South Africa interviewed in the documentary said that the Duchess inspires them to reach for higher goals in their lives. The same sentiments were expressed in Australia, New Zealand, Fiji, Morocco, Tonga, Ireland and in the UK. I would, therefore, plead with the Sussex Squaddies to renew our efforts to defend and actively support the Sussexes, including the innocent lovable cute Master Archive.
I think we should in our different ways, send messages to Sussex Royal, Buckingham Palace, SW1, London or to their Instagram account offering our strong support to them. We should say, we want them to stay here, not go anywhere, to fight on and not give in to racists, bigots, and thuggish journalism.
