There has been much racism directed at the Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle’s Nationality, from deep rooted Britons who believe that she doesn’t deserve a place in the Royal tree.
The same energy was given to Harry’s mom Princess Diana for her constant defiance of British traditions. Be it giving birth outside the Palace, or choosing to omit the “obey” in her royal vow, to her fashion choices. Diana was loved by many, she was an epitome of womanhood.
Diana set a precedence for the movement Meghan is on now, which is raising a lot of speculation about Meghan meeting a similar fate as Diana, while the British media has a field day of feeding into all of that.
A couple hours ago Prince Harry and Meghan Markle announced in an Instagram post that they would take a “step back” from the royal family.
Rumors that the couple were intending to distance themselves from the rest of the royal family have circulated for months, but no formal announcement had been made until now.
In the press release posted on the official website of the Duke and Duchess:
“After many months of reflection and internal discussions, we have chosen to make a transition this year in starting to carve out a progressive new role within this institution. We intend to step back as ‘senior’ members of the Royal Family, and work to become financially independent, while continuing to fully support Her Majesty The Queen. It is with your encouragement, particularly over the last few years, that we feel prepared to make this adjustment. We now plan to balance our time between the United Kingdom and North America, continuing to honour our duty to The Queen, the Commonwealth, and our patronages. This geographic balance will enable us to raise our son with an appreciation for the royal tradition into which he was born, while also providing our family with the space to focus on the next chapter, including the launch of our new charitable entity. We look forward to sharing the full details of this exciting next step in due course, as we continue to collaborate with Her Majesty The Queen, The Prince of Wales, The Duke of Cambridge, and all relevant parties. Until then, please accept our deepest thanks for your continued support.”
