Harry & Meghan's contempt for the British Public.

First, let me make it clear I am no anti-royalist. I greatly admire the Queen. and have always had a soft spot for William, Kate and family, and Harry. But, apart from shedding a tear as I watched William and Harry in that funeral procession (who couldn't be moved watching those two children following their beloved mother's coffin.) I now find that since Harry married Meghan, I am very quickly finding that Harry has become a huge hypocrite!

I don't know whether he is being browbeating by Meghan, but he has definitely morphed into a rather arrogant, anti-media type from the Harry that the public once loved.

Take baby Archie. Have you seen a proper picture of him? Did we even catch a glimpse of his little face as they left hospital? Do we still really know where he was born and what time?

Harry, Meghan and Archie are being feted in America at this time, and guess what? we've just seen the very first close up pictures of the royal baby courtesy of the American media! Good enough for Meghan to consent to all of them to see a full close up of Archie, but not good enough to show him to the British public that took her to our hearts when she married Harry, thrilled for them when informed she was pregnant, and especially with the birth. (which was a farcical event even then thanks to their wish for privacy).

Harry even made a point of saying that he wished us to respect their privacy when it came to Archie and Meghan after the birth. One could perhaps appreciate this request with what happened to his mother and the paparazzi that hounded her. But to then show off Archie to the whole of America before the British public have even seen him, to me smacks of Hypocrisy of the highest order.

It certainly suits them both to use the media to their advantage when it is wanted, such as their wedding, but when the British public only ask for a look at Archie to coo over as we have always done with every royal baby, it is an arrogant NO!. Good enough to show him off to the Americans though.

Sorry Harry, you seem to have morphed into an aristocratic snob with a "you may look but don't touch" attitude since you got together with Meghan. I would advise that this misguided Royal hire a good public relations team behind him to advise him that it is the British public that pay for his and Meghan's luxurious, want for nothing Royal lifestyle, including 2.5 million for their new home, and in my book, that makes them public property whether their royal little arses likes it or not!

Some wise person should also inform Harry (and especially Meghan, who I think has acted crassly in showing off Archie to the American public before the British public) that the public here can quickly go off Royals who treat them with such utter contempt.

What do you think? Am I wrong?

My advice is - you alianate the British public at your peril.

No, I do not think you are wrong, Shropshiregirl, but you can't expect some mediocre porn actress to be aware of royal protocols. Harry should know better, admittedly.

I have the greatest respect for your Queen - I think she is a hard working and remarkable woman. Not so sure about Charles - think he has had a raw deal. William will make a splendid King. Anne is also very hard working. The rest of them are just leeches as far as I am concerned.

Re: Harry & Meghan's contempt for the British Public.

I mostly appreciate your posts Shropshiregirl, but on this issue I don't share the same view.

Archie is not a Prince and he doesn't have a title. Archie does have American parentage and I don't think Harry or Meghan are doing anything wrong really. They've ditched the Royal tradition.
Just because some of us might feel we have had our noses put out, we have to respect them and their lives.
If we don't like the press given to them (which is fairly obvious from most ant-Royals on this platform) then we shouldn't moan at the privacy they prefer.
Her choice, she does not belong to the UK .

That's the trouble with the UK public, we are very fickle.

My theory is that the whole Markle debacle was planned by the men in suits and nothing to do with their love for each other.

Re: Harry & Meghan's contempt for the British Public.

The whole lot could and should be replaced with a rubber stamp. The queen is of absolute no use in government other than being purely a titular head of state.

They cost the tax payers an absolute fortune when all the associated costs get factored in and as for being a tourist attraction? What nonsense.

As for Me-again, I really wonder if Harry wed her in an attempt to get revenge for something, and I have a good idea what, or if he just a tosser. Probably both.

Her behaviour is precisely what I expect from what she is.

Why the blue blazes should we respect that shower of scroungers?

Well your traditions don't believe in Royal traditions full stop. That's why yours ended with King David !
If you want to be rude to the heritage of my country, it can work both ways.

So don't start !
