Just eight days after I broke the world-exclusive story that Prince Harry was dating Meghan Markle in October 2016 when it was decided to put the then-American actress who was an unwitting victim of circumstances. hers.
written by Jason Knauf, then Harry’s communications secretary, Prince William and his wife, Kate Middleton, a 403-word statement issued on November 8, 2016, could not have been clearer.
“The past week has seen a boundary crossed,” it wrote. “His girlfriend, Meghan Markle, has suffered a wave of abuse and harassment.”
Not only was there a “smear” on the front page of a national newspaper, but the commentaries contained a “racist conspiracy”.
Harry’s harrowing confession that it’s “really hard to look back” doesn’t quite fit the couple’s decision to make a documentary about the horrors of it all.
“Prince Harry is concerned for Miss Markle’s safety and is deeply disappointed that he was unable to protect her,” the statement added.
The implication was clear – Mrs Markle was in danger of turning into Diana, Princess of Wales – which was hunted by the media until the day of her death. In his recently published book, courtierRoyal author Valentine Low claims Meghan threatened to “kick” Harry if he didn’t make a statement.
In a follow-up statement, released on October 1, 2019, with the announcement that the pair were suing Associate Newspapers, Harry made it more clear: “My deepest fear is that history repeats itself.
“I have witnessed what happens when someone I love is commoditized to the point where they are no longer treated or considered a real human being. I lost my mother and now I watch my wife fall victim to those same powerful forces.”
The latest trailer for their upcoming Netflix series seems to mark the end of this particular “story,” as it’s known in Meghan’s previous transaction.
Portrayed as a woman who was first revered and then vilified by the media (complete with voiceovers from her arch nemesis Piers Morgan), the one-minute film does not There’s no shame in comparing it to Harry’s late mother, who makes a brief appearance in the masked footage. from the paparazzi.
Again, preaching the gospel according to Oprah, he wisely declared: “No one knows the full truth. We know the whole truth.”
Of course it would be more believable if this latest trailer wasn’t so honest.
As is always the case with the Duke and Duchess of Disingenuity – nothing is quite what it seems.
For starters, Harry’s painful admission that “it’s really hard to look back…what the hell happened” doesn’t quite match the decision to make a six-part documentary of the couple about the horror of it all. He talks of “a bulimia”, apparently unaware that he and Meghan are the ones actively stirring up public opinion.
He’s hinting the media is pitting the princess against the princess – just because last week’s trailer was happy to portray Kate as the source of Meghan’s suffering.
And his suggestion that stories being “leaked” and “seeded” by his closest and loved ones would probably have drawn more sympathy if it weren’t for the page story. People’s February 2019 cover, titled: “Meghan Markle’s Best Friends Break Their Silence: ‘We Want To Speak Our Points. Truth’.”
In the face of negative headlines, Meghan dramaticly declared: “I realized, they’ll never protect you,” perhaps forgetting that she was once a secret to the Metropolitan Police bodyguards. taxpayer-funded and the entire palace press office.
As Harry put it, “This is a dirty game,” seemingly unaware of the dirty role he played in it by selling out his family for a chunk of Kardashian’s cash.
A more honest approach might be to take some responsibility. But instead, these anti-monarchy royals, who insisted on keeping their titles despite denigrating the institution to which they belonged, returned to the House of Windsor route one… and blamed the world. the media.
Not only did the game look “dirty,” but it was downright deceiving when it was discovered that most of the images of the UK’s invasive, evil press were actually filmed in the US, which is considered a The sanctuary of the Sussexes family. As the Yanks might say, “Find out.”
“I was scared,” Harry insists, recalling that truly terrifying time living in a multimillion-pound mansion in the middle of the “hood” of Windsor Great Park.
To any vaguely objective observer, the “full truth” is less black and white than Christopher Bouzy’s claim that, “It’s about hatred, it’s about race” or the suggestion of Jenny Afia that: “There is a fight against Meghan to fit someone else’s agenda.”
But if both trailers are anything to go by, it’s unlikely we’ll hear from anyone with a greater degree of objectivity than a man who issued a report about trolling Meghan with a bot. and a woman is paid by the hour to protect her .
Meghan suggests that with the click of a finger, “everything has changed”.
However, a documentary seeking the “full truth” will not only focus on the story of the public turning against the couple after they got married.
These anti-monarchy royals… return to House of Windsor route one – and blame the media
It will no doubt also explore why it turned against them privately with the filing of a bullying complaint in October 2018 – less than six months after the fairytale wedding at Windsor Castle.
It remains to be seen if any disgruntled staff members will contribute to episode one or episode two but one gets the clear impression that for now the same rule applies just as it did when Mr. first statement six years ago: “What Meghan wants, Meghan gets.”
