Prince Harry and Meghan Markle Leave Royal Family
There are few people on earth I can think of that I could care less about than Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. The Royal Family, as a whole, puts on display almost every terrible thing about our culture. Although often relevant to our purposes when they push for population control, today’s news is a bit of an odd mystery.
Today, the couple announced that they are “stepping back” as senior members of their Royal Family. The message in some ways is cryptic, in other ways, it screams pettiness. They claim they want to be financially independent after Prince Harry lived rent-free in a castle with butlers for decades. It would seem that Markle didn’t share the same love for the free rent.
Is this the first domino to tumble for the elites?
“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,” the Duke and Duchess of Sussex wrote on Instagram. “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.”
