I just finished watching Harry & Meghan on Netflix and there are several things I would like to talk about. First, I would like to say well done to them both for telling their story, in this three part documentary aired on 8, Dec 2022.
I am not, nor have I ever been a Royalist, however, I do like members of the Royal Family as individuals. I also want to point out that I do look at both sides when it comes to the toxicity of the media, press and public that we have had to read and listen to these last several years.
I wrote an article here before after the ‘Oprah’ interview and in that article I said that it was pretty much certain that eventually Harry would step back. It didn’t matter if it was then or In five or ten years time, he would go his own way.
I also wrote that while I wasn’t surprised that he did so after marrying Meghan, I was surprised that he discussed his personal, private life on Oprah for the world to hear.
In my opinion, the problems he and Meghan faced and how it made them feel, should have been discussed with the family in private.
I understand people’s anger (Regarding the Oprah interview) but I don’t understand or condone the treatment they have inflicted on Harry & Meghan, not by the press, media or public, the name calling, the toxic barrage of abuse and threats is so not acceptable.
Remind me, what was it that was trending on Twitter after the sad death of Caroline Flack? Oh yes, ‘In a world full of hate’, be kind.
With the statistics being so high on mental health and sadly suicides, why do so many continue to hound Harry & Meghan? and so many others.
Has history taught you anything? And while on the subject of history, one individual on the documentary said something that got me thinking. Slavery, it’s very true that even when I was in school we were only ever told of the Abolition of Slavery.
Nothing was ever spoken of the pain and suffering inflicted on those who were enslaved, nor did they discuss the fact that the slave owners were compensated after the abolition, why is that?
Racial discrimination is NOT okay on any level, we are all equal with our own uniqueness, yet, in school we were never told that we must not treat those of colour with indifference, nor were we told of the mental, physical or sexual abuse inflicted.
I only understood the level and impact inflicted after having watched ‘Roots’ by Alex Hayley and it was then that I read more about the situation of those times, and let’s not forget that there still exists racism even today, perhaps not as it was then but modern day slavery does exist.
Getting back to Harry & Meghan, allegedly some of the footage they have used in the documentary are not from what they say happened at the time but actually about other events that took place that had nothing to do with them? I don’t know about that but what I do know is the press and media will manipulate events to suit.
All I can say now is this, there are many situations taking place throughout the world right now that you should be focusing attention on, corruption of Governments, corruption of Big Pharma, poverty and so much more.
Harry & Meghan do a lot of good not only in the States but also around the world, they are focusing their attention on so many injustices and trying to raise awareness and put it right, leave them be.
There are young woman and children being taken from their families with false promises of work and better pay, when in Reality they are being trafficked and passed around paedophiles all over the world.
Focus on the issues that are tearing peoples lives apart, ask yourself what you can do to help and make a difference. Educate yourselves and your children, teach them right from wrong so that the next generation can be the generation that changes the world we live in today.
