Prince Harry Takes Huge Dig at the Queen for Staying Silent on Racism

Share on Facebook

Prince Harry has caused quite a stir this week after taking a not-so-subtle dig at his grandmother, her majesty the Queen…

With his wife, the California-born Meghan Markle, Prince Harry packed up and made the move amid a whole load of controversy.

And, with it, he seems to have grown somewhat resentful towards the old-fashioned ways of his grandmother, the Queen.

Since their highly-publicized wedding in 2018, the couple threw themselves into their royal duties and took part in many royal tours and visits all around the world.

Her beautiful looks and elegant demeanor captured hearts all around the world, and her work for feminism and women’s charities has set an excellent example within the royal family.

Meghan was quickly criticized upon her entrance into the royal family, and not all the complaints were because she “wasn’t royal enough.” A family feud with her father, Thomas Markle, was quickly made very public and, when he didn’t attend the wedding, the heat was turned onto Meghan.

Thomas Markle made claims back in 2018 on British television breakfast show, Good Morning Britain, that Meghan had simply “ghosted” him, saying: “I’ve still never met my son-in-law. Why couldn’t Prince Harry have got on a plane and flown to see me to ask for her hand?”

They said that “it’s a terribly sad situation but Meghan has made the very difficult decision that she doesn’t have an active relationship with her father anymore.” “It’s obviously heartbreaking for her but she has to protect herself, her husband and her son.”

Reports came through that Meghan was extremely high-maintenance in the palace and servers who worked for her had reportedly even quit their jobs due to her behavior.  

It was reported that Meghan left Kate “in tears” after a strict bridesmaid fitting for Princess Charlotte. But, despite many claims that the sisters-in-law are actually very close, tabloids in both the U.K and the U.S. like to state otherwise, saying that Kate is “fed up” of Meghan’s high-maintenance attitude.

She was repeatedly mom-shamed after paparazzi snaps emerged of her “awkwardly” holding baby Archie – a struggle that any new mom can totally relate to. Shaming a new parent is completely uncalled for, and this made it very obvious that the press were desperate to stir hate.

Meghan’s eventful life was something that the papers simply loved to pick apart…

And it seemed that British tabloid paper, The Mail on Sunday, took things a step too far when they published an intimate and private letter that Meghan wrote to her father earlier this year.

This decision came as Prince Harry made a highly personal attack on the British tabloid press over the treatment of his wife, saying that he could “no longer be a silent witness to her private suffering.”

And it was following from this scandal that the couple made their shock announcement.

The royal couple announced via their joint Instagram page that they were stepping down as senior members of the royal family. “After many months of reflection and internal discussions, we have chosen to make a transition this year in starting to carve out a progressive new role within this institution. We intend to step back as ‘senior’ members of the Royal Family and work to become financially independent while continuing to fully support Her Majesty The Queen,” the post read.

“We now plan to balance our time between the United Kingdom and North America, continuing to honour our duty to The Queen, the Commonwealth, and our patronages. “This geographic balance will enable us to raise our son with an appreciation for the royal tradition into which he was born, while also providing our family with the space to focus on the next chapter, including the launch of our new charitable entity.”

This was huge news.

And, obviously, their decision ruffled a few royal feathers. “We look forward to sharing the full details of this exciting next step in due course, as we continue to collaborate with Her Majesty The Queen, The Prince of Wales, The Duke of Cambridge and all relevant parties.”

According to the BBC, no other senior members of the Royal Family were consulted – including the Queen – and Buckingham Palace is “disappointed.” The report also claims that senior royals are said to be “hurt” by the controversial announcement.

Making it across the border mere hours before it closed, Meghan and Harry are reportedly riding out the coronavirus pandemic in a secluded compound in Malibu.

Well, for Meghan, they have. “Meghan’s thrilled to have escaped the chaos of London. She feels like a new person,” a source close to the pair said. “On top of not being hounded by the British press 24/7, Meghan reportedly likes that she doesn’t have to worry about following outdated royal protocol anymore.”

“Meghan can go out in yoga pants and not be criticized for not following a dress code. She feels more relaxed and loves walking around fresh-faced with barely any makeup on.”

Various reports have been claiming that the prince is struggling to adjust to life in LA, and is missing his home country and his family.

“This could be the toughest test that Harry and Meghan have gone through since they got married,” an insider told New! Magazine, “Harry is feeling homesick and that’s taken Meghan by surprise as he thought the move was the right decision at the start of all this.”

Such as “the routine, his old friends and, of course, the daily contact with his family.”

This kind of family separation is bound to be difficult for anyone

But, out of all the things he misses of the Windsors, it turns out there’s one thing he isn’t too devastated to be away from.

You know, considering that their history was pretty much built upon it.

So, this week, a comment Harry made while discussing the topic has been taken as a not-so-subtle dig at his family and, of course, the Queen herself.

Over the weekend, Harry appeared on Color of Change

Where he spoke with civil rights leader, Rashid Robinson, about systematic racism, hate online, and people with privilege.

“There’s so much that has happened for so long that, once those problems exist, charity is crucial in so many areas, but it can’t fix the problem.”

And how difficult it will be to bring to an end. “The problem already exists by that point, the problem is already too big. And, as I’ve said to you before, it’s basically like bringing a bucket of water to a forest fire. So, we have to go to the root of the problem, to the source of the problem, and actually fix it there.”

“And, as we’ve discussed before, it’s going to take every single one of us. This is not down to the Black community, this is down to every single person that is on the planet right now.” By saying this, people have assumed that “every single person” was a hint at his own family, who have famously done nothing in the fight against racism all these years.

What do you think? Was Harry digging at his family? Or do you think he had no intention to drag the Windsor name through the dirt?
