The week that led up to the Oprah interview and the week after was 14 levels of WHAT THE ACTUAL FUCK.
I have lived in Britain all my life and seen some pretty crazy things from The British press, but this was an entirely new level of crazy. Not only were they vile, but it was also coming from a place of fear and panic. It was so transparent, that even people who had yet to see the seedy nature of the British press, finally connected the dots. While trying to cover their backs, they effectively exposed themselves.
While the tabloid press is a mighty weapon of propaganda, we must not give them too much power, it is a power that can be taken away if enough people are fed the truth to turn the tide. This process has already begun, and Sussex Squad members from across the globe have been part of that effort. What’s interesting to note is that since the Oprah interview aired, non Squad members have joined in the conversation, and that includes many notable celebrities. There’s no going back from this and as I see it, the Royal Family have two choices: and own their shit, or continue to sweep their mess under the rug until this mess morphs into a monster that swallows them alive.
By now, most of you have watched the interview and listened to a few summary podcasts from either ourselves or one of our Squad friends.
In a nutshell:
There were concerns about Archie’s skin colour.
The Royal Family is basically a cult.
Meghan was pretty much kept prisoner at times.
And Meghan and Harry acknowledge that they saved each other.
I think most of us who have been following Sussex’s journey was not too surprised about a lot that was said, what was most shocking was that it was said out loud.
While you got the sense that Harry and Meghan were still keeping a lot under their chests, they said more than was expected.
It is tragic that over two decades after Diana’s death, we find ourselves here, having the same conversation, and with the same tabloid rag mags spinning fake news stories that mainly target Meghan. Royalists are so consumed by their hatred of a woman they don’t know, they cannot see that they are just keyboard clicking sheep who make money for the red-papers and their scuzzy journalists.
What’s been interesting to monitor, is The Firm’s response. Firstly, it took them two whole days to respond, and when they did, it was the ‘comment but no comment’ style of hogwash we’ve come to expect. Time and time again, The Firm has been given the opportunity to redeem themselves, and they choose to dig a bigger hole.
Following the non-statement, we’ve had an endless parade of PR stunts that would be laughable were they not so insulting. The first time we see Charles, he shows up at a community centre and is surrounded by black people. The only thing missing was a BBQ grill and it could have easily been a cook-out. This was the ultimate ‘I’m not racist because I have black friends and chill with blacks’. Note to the Palace aides: using black people as props to prove you are not racist, is racist. This pitiful scene was repeated again a few days later when William and Kate showed up at a school. Trailing William was a black woman wearing an African print top and auntie even got fresh braids done. Everyone else was wearing jackets, while auntie was out here getting cold.
LOOK LOOK LOOK – I’M WITH A BLACK PERSON!!!
We also saw William, Kate, and Camilla all papped while driving their cars. I can only assume this was some kind of lazy clap back at Meghan’s claims her driving license was taken and her movement limited. Whenever do we get random pictures of the Royals driving around? Who in the palace is making these PR choices? What’s next? Kate and William show up to a rap concert? Notting Hill Carnival maybe? Will we see Kate attempt the first-ever twerk by a senior royal, heck, sis should get some of those 90’s half cornrows. Summer is coming, might as well go all the way.
It is crazy to believe that we are literally living in a future season of The Crown. They better pick cute people to play Sussex Squad members. An institution that was never prepared for the modern age is slowly being crushed by it, and it’s a death of their own making.
On a final note, the Markle Sparkle strikes again, did you know the darn chair set used in the interview sold out? Not only that, chicken rescue charities like the British Hen Welfare trust have seen an increase in inquiries. Looks like everybody wants an Archies Chicken Inn. Meghan is influencing chicken adoption. Her power.
