I agree that she got in over her head. Royal life sounds like a suffocating existence though. I can imagine it would be extremely difficult for anyone who knows a more independent lifestyle. But I think they’ll be fine financially. They’re both skilled high profile people, not like most common folk.
I think he respects certain values and traditions of the royal family, he doesn’t respect others, such as the racist culture that comes with it. I think he ultimately realized that life wasn’t for him. He’s lucky, because if he hadn’t have met Meghan, he might have been “trapped” as he called it, in that environment and never realized the parts of it that were so toxic.
His wife and children are where his loyalties are now. And that’s how it should be.

Is “Paki” term racist?
Yes, it is
Can you explain?
It is seen as, and historically has been used as, a derogatory term for those from both India and Pakistan, despite seemingly referencing only those from Pakistan. It has a very unpleasant history.
Yeah, bc she’s manipulating him bc his family or “institution” is racist and they don’t value them as humans when they’re literally begging for help. Didn’t she say that it was his idea to leave? That he said that they need to think of a solution. But she’s so manipulative right?
@slms2003 what proof is there that they were racist towards her?
@DragonXR They definitely ignored all the racist things that were said about Megan Markle and her baby. They were at least bystanders. She also said that the media and the royal family influence and control each other. Not her exact quote but “they would rather lie to protect Kate Middleton, than tell the truth to protect me.” Plus, someone (they didn’t say who) was concerned about their baby being too dark. Megan Markle isn’t dark at all, so I don't know why they would think the baby would come out dark. Only a racist person would think that’s an issue.
@slms2003 that's not proof of anything. That's hearsay.
Do you really think they’d just both sit there and lie about racism for the fun of it? Come on.
True , I guess no one has ever lied before especailly in power.
Where’s the proof they’re lying?
Where's the proof they are telling the truth? There's always 3 sides to every story. I'm not saying they are lying , but an accusation isn't a fact. Accusations by multiple people about her being a bully hasn't been proven either, but we know royal aids who've worked there for decades quit. So we dont believe those women , are they lying?
@DragonXR What you don't say is as critical as what you DO say. They let the British press figuratively rip her to shreds and said nothing. And if you think the "Crown" isn't full of bigoted, biased, racially superior thinking members, you're living on a different planet dude.
I don’t need a video recording of the comments to believe it. The whole environment seems toxic af. They’re better off now.
@loveslongnails bro , the British press took topless photos of Kate and posted it online. When William and Kate got married , they were under the microscope of the press too. What Harry and Meghan went through isn't new. Just remember the same press was was blamed for Diana's death.
" I believe " is not based on a fact. That's emotion. I'm not invested emotionally in those two. I'm invested in the truth.
Tells you where some men are at when they down vote the idea of supporting your wife and family, and being empathetic regarding the racism thrown at her. No white person ever really understands, do they?
@DragonXR Yes, bc having your baby called a monkey just bc you’re half Black is the same thing. At least the royal family tried to protect Kate. Why weren’t her kids’ titles and protection being removed? The only difference between Kate and Megan that matters to them is that Megan is Black. They say it’s bc she's American, but come on now. It’s obviously bc she’s Black. If that wasn’t the case, they would’ve stood up for her when racist comments were being made about her and her baby.
@loveslongnails are you white?
If you’re invested in the truth then why are you invested in this case at all? You’ll know know a lot of the truth because a good bit of it is based on things that happened in private. Only they know the truth.
@DragonXR Topless photos are not relevant to the conversation about racism. You can go read the articles and everything that was said on your own time, since you're so interested in the "truth". None of THAT is hearsay. It got so bad Harry sued the press. Being chastised for topless photos is a far, FAR different thing than being degraded for your mixed blood line. That's the issue, not titties.
@DragonXR My skin color or race is also irrelevant to the conversation.
@slms2003 Harry and Meghan decline titles for their son (at birth) who would have never been given the title of "Prince" anyways because he isn't in line to the throne. That has nothing to do with race but lineage.
@DragonXR Clearly you didn’t watch the interview. Or you’re just ignoring everything that they said, for who knows why. Bc from what I’m seeing, you’re just taking the side of the royal family. Which you don’t know them. None of us do.
Meghan is absolutely made out to be an enemy much more than Kate ever was. I think it’s about more than Meghan’s race though. She’s a liberal, feminist, American Hollywood actress. And she’s older than Harry. Those things alone make parts of western society seeth with envy and anger.
@loveslongnails you literally brought up white men in your comment. Topless pics are relevant bc y'all said the Royal family didn't protect Meghan like they did protected Kate , and I was pointing it how it was no different.
@MzAsh you just agreed with me. Thank you.
@slms2003 so you believe he wasn't called Prince because of his race?
@DragonXR It's irrelevant to the issue of race, and I didn't bring up "white men". What I said, regarding racism, and I quote directly, is " No white person ever really understands, do they? " If you're going to use my words, get them right. THOSE words are what I "literally" said, NOT your words.
@loveslongnails you are white lol
@DragonXR As I said, it's irrelevant, as is your presumption and as are pretty much all of your comments on this issue. So far, you've bastardized the word "literally", and accused others of hearsay while employing it yourself, Mr. Seeker of Truth. :-D
@loveslongnails accused others of hearsay? Everything stated here was based on the word of someone else lol. Keep playing mental gymnastics bro it's entertaining. 😊And don't be ashamed to say you're white it's cool. Lol
@DragonXR I'm ashamed to be engaging a fool like yourself, hence, I will stop.
LOL, why would people downvote me having an opinion?
He’s her partner, not her parent. That’s what makes him awesome.
there's a big difference in being a partner and being "led around". Does he not have any opinions or motivation on his own? Have you noticed how she never extends him respect by taking front-center even occasionally? Have you seen how dull and lifeless he looks compared to pre-marrige?This is NOT a "partnership" by ANY means.I can see why they get get along so well.For now, anyway.
His face lit up the room when speaking about their time alone as a family living in America. I think he feels remorse that he’s realized what a ridiculously toxic institution he was born into.
Also, I wonder, what else was he supposed to be so disagreeing or opinionated about? The whole reason why they’re there is because of the experience they’ve had in how she was being treated. He appropriately allowed her to take the lead in telling her side of the story.
No. That would be the wrong thing for him to do. Her experience and feelings are valid. She has every right to tell the truth.
It's how she done it I don't agree with. It's like she ran home to tell on the ROYAL FAMILY. Only gonna be one winner
How *should* she have approached it?
Talk to the family. Not to a bias American media company. Remember 3 1/2 interview. Edited to 1 1/2
I believe they said there’s no “talking” to the family about things like that. Honestly I think she’s being generous by not dropping names. I’d have recorded every word they said and released the tapes.
