As we slowly approach 2021, spare a thought for Harry and Meghan haters. It’s been a tough few years for them, but 2020 has been the toughest.
Since Meghan entered the scene, they’ve had to endure the absolute horror of a woman of colour enjoying the privileges they thought were preserved only for them. Those palaces, sparkling tiaras fitted with the world’s finest stolen jewels, country estates, and golden carriages were meant to be theirs! Childhood dreams of dressing up in Mary Poppins cosplay and waving to their beloved peasants were dashed by an American actress with ‘exotic DNA’. We can’t even begin to imagine how painful it’s all been for them. The anxiety, insomnia, and depression have been crippling, and if that wasn’t bad enough, now they have to watch our faves make money moves in sunny California, and be the living embodiment of DJ Khalid’s All I Do Is Win.
To the haters, I want to speak to you directly…
If you can tame the green-eyed monster within you, you may not get to marry a Prince, but there is still a chance you can live the golden life too.
2021 is right around the corner, and it’s time you began to heal your grief and level up. The constant obsession with Meghan is making you wrinkle and prune faster. If you don’t stop, you’re heading straight into the cosmetologist’s chair to get some baby botox. The diet of sour grapes you’re living on does not provide enough nutrition to function properly. You need a balance combination of all 5 food groups, and I hear the new instant super lattes Meghan invested in are also very nutritious.
I recognise that many of you are not bad people, you’re just victims of a culture that has taught you that being mediocre is okay. This is probably why you’re easily impressed by waving and coat dresses, but you view Meghan’s achievements and ability to create measurable change as something to hold in contempt, rather than something to be admired.
You’ve been fed a steady diet of mental poison by a press pack who wants you to view Meghan’s success in a negative light. What I think you fail to understand, is that this is actually a way of controlling you, and teaching you to view high-achievers with suspicion. The gossip writers who encourage you to think this way live incredibly lavish lives themselves. Their children go to the best schools and have wealth you could never imagine. Don’t you think it’s hypocritical that they’ve created a narrative around Meghan being a social climber when they themselves benefit from a class system that keeps you in the bottom rung? They get you to focus on Meghan so you never focus on them, but what are they doing for you other than sucking up your time with garbage news stories? Every time you click on an article about Meghan, you’re making some gossip writer on Fleet Street richer too.
That is time you could be spending building your own business and bank account, improving your life skills, networking, moving and shaking, or simply just focusing on the simple things that give you joy. Despite what you’ve been fooled into believing, there is nothing wrong with aspiring for better things, working hard to get them, and making money. The rent has to be paid, and since Harry and Meghan are no longer living off of your tax-payer money like the other Royals, they have to make money moves elsewhere. Netflix and Spotify are just the beginning, so I suggest you get over it now instead of being incandescent with rage and ending up with a stroke.
My advice to you is to stop drinking the Kool-aid from the press and start taking notes from Harry and Meghan instead, and see how quickly your life improves. In fact, if you had been taking notes the last five years, maybe you would have got yourself a new job, new deal, new partner, new house, maybe even had a kid and made some glamorous new friends too. Stop being fooled into thinking that all of this is somehow bad, it’s what you SHOULD be doing with your life. Living in the comments section of the Daily-Fail is getting you nowhere.
