Prince Harry and Meghan Markle left the royal family in order to pursue their own endeavors and to have more “privacy.” However, a year in it’s becoming more and more clear that the goal isn’t a quiet life, but establishing a royal court in the United States, with the couple as its undisputed king and queen.
This was on display during the couple’s latest “royal” engagement at a military base with Afghan refugees. The couple were visiting a classroom where Afghan children were learning English, and participated in various activities, including leading the students in rendition of the song, “Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes.”
They even told these war refugees, who hardly had access to gossip and entertainment news, that this song was a favorite of their son Archie. If any of those children knew what they were talking about, it would be shocking.
Seeing the handful of pictures provided and the summary of their activities while there, it was clear that the couple were seemingly representing the “monarchy” at the school that some politicians have expressed security concerns about. Their actions were those of the soft diplomacy that royals are known for across the world.
However, the problem is that there is no American monarchy.
In 1776, the thirteen original colonies of the United States made the decision to publicly declare their independence to King George III of England and the world, citing their grievances with his rule and their goal of establishing an independent country. The document is the infamous Declaration of Independence. It was spiritual successor of the Magna Carta, which was created and limited the power of the King of England centuries before
Thomas Jefferson, who eventually became president, wrote in the Declaration: “Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute Tyranny over these States.”
He went on to write, “A Prince whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people.”
Who would have thought that 245 years later, a washed-up c-list actress and her hapless “prince” would be once again trying to establish a royal’s tyrannical rule over the United States?
But that’s what Harry and Meghan are seemingly trying to do, and someone in the Biden administration is supporting their delusions of grandeur.
They have no business being on a U.S. military base as foreign royals talking with refugees or talking with soldiers about PTSD, as they also did. It implies that they have some sort of authority or influence, which they should not given this situation.
They are private citizens who are supposedly making their money as authors, producers, entrepreneurs and running their foundation, Archewell.
So, why are they doing any of this?
Prince Harry probably didn’t know that his and Meghan’s half-in and half-out strategy within the royal family would be vetoed by the Queen after Megxit, so he probably considers this a continuation of his royal duties and a way to maybe surpass his brother, who will be King of England. He is rather dim after all.
Meghan has a different strategy.
She probably really does consider herself America’s princess or queen and is doing all she can to grow that narrative, while filling her own pocket and filming her every charitable move for Netflix. As a royal, Meghan could not get all the money and glory for being a charitable royal, so she came back to the States to make charity pay.
That’s why, as American citizens, we need to say enough is enough. The U.S. government should not be indulging a hapless prince and his delusional wife as they trapse across the country continuing royal duties that they should be doing in the United Kingdom.
We are a democracy, not a monarchy. We reject the tyranny of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. If they want an independent life, that’s fine, but stop using the United States to further your own pseudo royal agenda.
