For a couple that demands privacy, they sure enjoy invading their own. Prince Harry recently went on a shocking and mortifying 90-minute whine-athon on Dax Shepard’s “Armchair Expert Podcast.” During the broadcast, he dissed his entire family and their parenting and stating that after moving to California, he and Meghan Markle are now “free.”
All in all, the Duke and the Duchess of Montecito are the gift that keeps on giving to the media, but not to the royal family, who’s titles and connections they continue to exploit for money and fame.
The Queen and Prince Charles must pull their titles now, to avoid any more embarrassment.
In the interview, the new Fresh Prince of Montecito said, “I don’t think we should be pointing the finger or blaming anybody, but certainly when it comes to parenting, if I’ve experienced some form of pain or suffering because of the pain or suffering that perhaps my father or my parents had suffered, I’m going to make sure I break that cycle so that I don’t pass it on, basically.
“It’s a lot of genetic pain and suffering that gets passed on anyway so we as parents should be doing the most we can to try and say ‘you know what, that happened to me, I’m going to make sure that doesn’t happen to you.’”
So, the best way to break the cycle of “genetic pain” is to remove your child from his loving extended family, which is far from perfect but has treated him with nothing but love. And who’s to say that Harry and his wife’s parenting is any better? Archie is only two and their daughter hasn’t been born yet, they have a long way to go before declaring the superiority of their parenting.
Many also believe that Meghan is a textbook narcissist. Children of narcissists reportedly have low self-esteem, chronic shame, sensitivity to criticism, depression and anxiety, lack of boundaries, problematic relationship to anger, patterns of self-destructive behavior, depleted sense of self and competitiveness.
Huh, it actually sounds like Prince Harry himself is the child of the narcissist, which wasn’t Prince Charles or Queen Elizabeth but Princess Diana. He displays, most, if not all, of these characteristics. So, is he really breaking the cycle or continuing and magnifying it?
If there is one Windsor son that is really changing his family history, it’s Prince William and his family with Catherine, The Duchess of Cambridge. Their children, from all indications, are grounded and have a profoundly stable home life.
Harry and Meghan moved constantly, crossing several international borders, in Archie’s first year of life, and he has no connection with any of his expanded family. Which is really better in the long run?
As Twitter user Royal Tea states, “My grandparents caused my father pain, my father caused me pain, and now, to “break the cycle” I’m going to cause all of them more pain. Makes complete sense.”
He also said, “So living here (in Los Angeles) now I can actually lift my head and I feel different, my shoulders have dropped, so have hers, you can walk around feeling a little bit more free, I can take Archie on the back of my bicycle, I would never have had the chance to do that.”
It appears like Prince Harry is indulging a little too much in the legalized marijuana of California, as he is both rewriting his own family history and seems to have engaged in some sort of Meghan induced delusion about himself and his family.
What happens when the American press and paparazzi become intrusive and his bubble of contentment bursts? Prince Harry probably doesn’t have much of an answer for that—but it doesn’t matter anymore. It’s all about whining and complaining about his lot in life, despite being born a prince.
