Whether or not you agree with the author’s politics, he brings up excellent points.  I saw the interview and at first was horrified but what she endured.  But I noticed her eyes teared up a little, but her delivery was so unemotional, so articulate and so studied, I started to have suspicions.  At this moment, have doubts and I also support her feelings. A bit of both.  The racism type comment is so bizarre it’s hard to parse it.  Anyone who understands genetic would not make a comment like that even if they were racist. It also could have been said not out of racist beliefs but out of ignorance.

What do you think?

The U.S. news stories all favor Markle, while the British people are mainly siding with the monarchy.  The stories about her entitled behavior are relatively easy to prove, as people who were in contact with her before they left England have spoken out. Still, as a non Brit, I also felt some of what she said was very compelling.

The Queen speaks. Briefly.

The Queen’s words extended an olive branch, indicated that the comments about race may not have been intended as taken, and that people remember things differently. She’s also taking a personal interest in resolving this.

Personally I don't think Meghan ever intended to live her life as a working member of the Royal family.  She has, however, gotten what she wanted, marriage to a Prince, a Title, and the social status that goes with it, the mansions, etc.  I do feel sorry for Prince Harry as he has given up a lot for her, although according to her, she gave up everything for his family. Really she gave up nothing. It appears that every time she "wins", Harry loses.

I think so too. It seems that way.  He was extremely non informative in the interview and didn’t get much air time, but he looked terrible, worn out and sad. She looked like she always does when speaking in public or acting. Composed, calm and confident.  I think overall he wanted a way out from the system he thinks killed Diana, and she gave him one, but he lost his family and country. That is a lot to lose.

Royal family or not, denounced by (or departed from) royal family or not, or just an ordinary couple...

My thinking stands the same... private family matters should not be aired in public... even more so for executives, public figures, royals or ex-royals!

FWIW

I agree. If for nothing else, the grandchildren should have the opportunity to remain part of the extended family as they grow older. Family feuds rarely end well. Public feuds can’t.
