No Royals Have Harry and Meghan’s Worldwide Support
September 15, 2020
A lot of the United Kingdom population and of the Commonwealth have respect for the Queen, as she has been around for so long, staying mostly out of controversy and politics. Her only blemishes have been how the Monarchy handled Prince Charles’s divorce from Diana, Princess of Wales and immediately after her death and her ‘hands-off and say nothing approach’ meted out to the Duchess of Sussex. To that, could be added shielding her son Andrew from US law officers with the full regalia of HRH, full board in a 36-bedroom mansion on her Windsor Estate, state security, and full pocket money from her, even though he is not a working royal.
Apart from the Queen, I have never seen or heard any members of the Family attain the level of worldwide support as the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have. It is what drove them from the senior working role in January. Some royals and their nasty courtiers and spin doctors could not fathom the appeal these two had, when their bosses do not have the same appeal.
There was only one recourse they have; to demonise the Duchess through their newspaper contacts with lies to degrade the popularity, which started in Australia and was exhibited again in South Africa. Anyone who thinks these people would do these things on their own bat is deeply mistaken, especially when the intended victims are also Senior Working Royal families. The Cambridges, by all means, would have to be consulted first to give their consent, just in case the shit hits the fan and someone gets caught.
What these palace nincompoops did not realise is that the Sussexes had sussed everything they were doing with their newspaper diabolical friends and were going to find a way to get out of it. Contrarily to reports, they do have friends in unlikely places in the United Kingdom. The newspapers accused that the Duchess since the wedding had planned all along to go back to the US using her new royal status as a backdrop to get lucrative acting jobs in Hollywood. They even alleged that she was looking for leading roles in the Disney Marvel comic series. They also overlooked the fact that she is a married woman with a new baby.
The Duchess, at the launch of the Smart Works pieces in September 2019, told the invited guests that she and the Duke were going to do similar community-based charity projects as she had done with Smart Works when they launch their Sussex Royal Foundation in 2020. During the Southern Africa Royal Tour, something persuaded the Sussexes to make the decision to call it quits in January 2020. The accusation by the scavengers was therefore not true. It was not a plan by the Duchess, was it?
According to their own warped minds and fake polls that they conduct, the British news media had bandied in the fall of 2019 that the Sussexes had no support in the United Kingdom nor within the Royal Family. In Southern Africa, as was during their Oceania Tour, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle realised that their global support was extremely high and no fluke at all. They would have sensed from the news reports from across the pond, and even in the old United Kingdom, that support had gone sky high, especially when they decided to sue the rabid newspapers.
Since January 2020, the various campaigns by the ‘Remainers’ have hit the buffers, but the Sussexes without any social media platform, have managed to attract support from countries as far as the Philippines, Indonesia, Argentina, and former Eastern Europe. These are countries outside the Commonwealth Organisation orbit and therefore can’t know much about the Royal Family. The growth of their popularity has grown through grassroots groups, such as the Sussex Squad, that support them. The dedication shown by the Sussex Squaddies is unquantifiable. The latest Squaddies’ Sussexes Birthdays endeavour to donate money to CAMFED in Southern Africa, is a case in point. That is to support par excellence.
No members of the Royal Family can command that kind of support, no matter how they try to concoct it. The Queen as the Head of State and because of her longevity is accorded grandmotherly respect. However, the rest of the family, when she is done with this world, will find it ‘hard going’ to convince their UK citizens, let along the rest of the world. The future Monarch, such as Princes Charles or William, with half-hearted support from their citizens, will be an interesting development.
However, with the support from their amazing supporters across the globe, the Sussexes would thrive as the Duchess said in the documentary in Johannesburg, South Africa in October 2019. They were wasting their precious energies, knowledge, and experiences within the Family. They have made a promising beginning.
