Harry and Meghan on Netflix
“The attacks upon Prince Harry and his wife, whether they’re coming from within the Palace or the media; it’s because they’re simply better at everything.”
I didn’t want to be here again. Yet here we are. On Friday morning, I woke up to 14 messages in my inbox, all with the same subject — Harry & Meghan on Netflix. I watched it on Thursday night before I fell asleep in the middle of Episode 3. I still didn’t finish it, it’s the World Cup right now and I don’t have the energy for two rough, world sporting events.
I don’t usually write about something until I have seen it all, investigated it, and analyzed it; this time I’ll make an exception.
I have researched these people plenty. I have so far written four articles about Harry and/or Meghan. I wrote about the unpopularly called Megxit, why so many women have issues with Meghan, their Oprah Interview, and the interview's aftermath.
There is nothing new to learn about these people; this documentary won’t reveal anything an intelligent human being can’t conclude on their own. The skeleton of what Harry & Meghan represent is always the same; it goes in circles and it will never change. Those two people are just an apparatus to measure the psyche of the people hating or disliking them.
For all the people disliking these two individuals; if you are reading this and you already have the — “But it’s just MY OPINION and I have a right to have my opinion” — empty gun ready, it’s time to quit. Evolve. This has nothing to do with your opinion, it’s to do with your FEELING. And your feeling is based on your experiences in life.
You might not want to think this about yourself, but every single person that comes at me trying to explain to me their disdain for Harry & Meghan, thinking you’ll convince me with some aha moment you just discovered, save your breath. The only thing you just did — is told me plenty about yourself.
I honestly don’t want to be repeating the same things I have already said four times about these two people, and what many wrote about them in numerous articles and op-eds. It’s actually very simple. There is one basis here, one single, poignant sentence the Palace aids threw out in the press, knowing really well it would be the core of why they would eventually succeed in destroying Harry and Meghan’s image.
You believing this, and repeating this sentence 7 million times just tells me you are a gullible poster boy (mostly girl) for why these tabloids still exist and shape not only people’s opinions, but a whole mentality.
You are a subject.
You are just a subject, a mass, a follower with no critical thinking skills. And you are also lazy if you can’t spend 15 minutes researching the lie you heard somewhere, basing your wrong opinions on.
You are repeating this sentence because YOU WANT it to be true. Not because IT IS the truth. You need a legit reason to hate or dislike these two people.
The sentence I’m talking about, and you are talking about is the following:
“Harry and Meghan left the Royal Family because they said they want PRIVACY, so why are they showing their face everywhere and asking for all this ATTENTION?”
I have no patience for you anymore.
They NEVER said that, and you know that very well. It has been repeated time and time and again, they have NEVER said that.
They have never uttered those words out of their mouths. You heard that sentence, or read it from someone who is trying to annihilate them.
They CLEARLY said — they don’t expect the reporting about them to be complementary or in their service, but they wish the reporting about them to be OBJECTIVE and FAIR.
You know very well they said that. Their actual words are not very difficult to track, since they only gave a handful of interviews or statements over the course of their union.
You heard these people actually speak 5 times since 2017, yet you throw the “seeking attention” line like it pays your rent.
Instead of worrying about them, why don’t you ask yourself why are you bothered by these two people? What do you lack in life? What’s missing? Regardless of what you think might happen behind palace doors, these two people CLEARLY love each other. He WANTS this. He wants her.
Imagine being a person that watched three episodes of LOVE and you are bothered by it? They look great together, flawed clearly, but so appealing to the eye, and ear — how can this BOTHER you?
I fell asleep watching, full of butterfly-like feels. I don’t care if they are monetizing or not, would you not monetize millions if someone wanted to give it to you? I would. You would. Stop being such a blatant hypocrite. You watched this documentary last night and you woke up with a bitter feeling, disliking something that has no effect on your life.
Harry Windsor was the most famous child in the world. His brother might have been for a hot minute or until age maybe 5–6, where he already showed disdain for his brother, in the famous video in the garden, with Diana. That little kid was bitchy to Harry at legit 5 years of age.
As soon as the little blob of a toddler grew up and developed a character, he was instantly the most famous child in the world. Then he grew up to be the most famous man in the world. In what parallel universe can you possibly think Harry Windsor can ever live without attention, part of the Royal Family or not?
In what universe do you think he’s that clueless to think he could ever have privacy?
And why do you think this OG Gangsta of the Royal Family is not allowed to demand to be reported about with objectivity and fairness? He might be spare, but should his life, the woman he loves, and his family be a fodder to pick on, so his dull brother and his even duller wife can seem better, more interesting in comparison?
Everything for The Crown, right? If The Crown made sure they are protected in British Press, instead of planting negative stories about them to win the popularity contest, sucking up for The Crown would probably be what this couple would have continued to do.
Out of all the articles, radio shows, tv pieces, and op-eds I read about Harry and Meghan, there is one guy that gets my sentiment about this subject to a tee. I have said plenty about these people; in this article, I want to include someone else's view on this subject.
He has spoken about them many, many times, he answered callers' questions about them and the level of impatience that the James O’Brian has for haters or dislikers of Harry and Meghan — is pure poetry in its own form.
This is what he said on his radio show on Friday, the day after the Harry & Meghan on Netflix aired. It’s the motor of this issue.
“Here’s the bottom line; Harry and Meghan have become hate figures for much of Britain, never mind the British media for two reasons, the first is, in James Baldwin's timeless quote — “I imagine one of the reasons people cling to their hate so stubbornly is because they sense once hate is gone they will be forced to deal with pain”. And the second reason is, they gave their finger to the Fleet Street (British tabloid media headquarters), and the media won’t accept that.
Look what happens if you dare to stand up to the British tabloid media, they will kick you around the room until you’re bruised and bloody, and in the case of the Dutchess, contemplating the worst possible way out of that level of abuse and unkindness.
And yet, Harry and Meghan carry on. They refuse to buckle. They tred to play by the rules. They sought the kind of deal the Royals have been securing through the ages in dealing with the media, they tried to get a kind of a hiatus, a reprieve, a cease-fire, but they didn’t get it.
The Palace, for good or for real, did not come in on behalf of Prince Harry and his wife, so they decided to do everything their own way. They decided to rewrite their rule book, they decided they would not dance to anybody’s tune but their own.
They are not perfect, they are not infallible, some of the stuff they do is a little bit silly, but my goodness, they made their break. Imagine that, imagine growing up in that fish bowl and deciding that you’re gonna smash the glass, and see whether or not you would survive.
And that’s what they can never be forgiven for.
And here finally, is the question. It’s just envy, isn’t it? The whole point of the attacks upon Prince Harry and his wife, whether they’re coming from within the Palace, on the record, off the record, nowhere near the record, or whether it’s coming from the media; it’s because they’re simply better at everything. They are better at PR, they’re more media savvy, they’re more articulate, they're more empathetic, and crucially — they are more accomplished. Look at their careers; compare their careers, they are more accomplished and they are more attractive.
So here is the real sin of Harry Windsor. And this only occurred to me last night; the real reason for the hatred and the viciousness and this astonishing level of abuse is because they make a complete mockery of Royalty itself.
The idea that he gets the top job and he sits in the sidecar for the rest of his life is absolutely absurd. But we can never ever admit that because it shakes the very foundation of The Royal family.”
Listen to this guy.
The way he conceptualizes “the issue” of Harry and Meghan, which only really mirrors the issues of The Royal Family — is nothing short of brilliant.
I’ve seen someone post a story on Instagram, after Harry and Meghan on Netflix aired, saying: “What is the difference between them and the Kardashians, this has become a reality show…”, also Piers Morgan tweeted the exact same thing, and it’s interesting to me how strong your feeling is about certain things and people which you then form into an OPINION you are entitled to have, and not want to see The Royal family is actually The Kardashians here.
Cooperating with media and allowing them access to in return write complementary articles about you. Planting negative stories about more popular members of your family so that you can become more loved or more popular. Lying, and manipulating in order to keep the hierarchy that suits you in place.
This is literally what Kim Kardashian and her mother have been doing for decades.
The Kardashian Kartel, and The Firm; please find differences? I’ll wait.
Funny how you think the Royal Kartel is in the right and the people who are trying to expose their wrongdoings aren’t.
Not people, but family. You do this to your family. You very well know, if you wanted to really get to the bottom of this issue, that Jason Knauf, a communication head of Harry’s own brother’s office planted negative stories about his wife, in the media.
You don’t find an offense in that, yet you find an offense in a man trying to expose that.
The compilation James O’Brian’s shows talking to people who hate or dislike Harry and/or Meghan is a perfect showcase into the psyche of these people, and you, if you are one of them. Listen to these, and how literally not one has any arguments but “It's just so obvious”.
The rage these people have in their voices while talking about these two people is the phenomenon and a showcase of an utterly ridiculous mental state and/or intelligence, that will continue probably as long as Harry and Meghan live.
Listen to these videos below. This is how you sound.
Not one of them can argue why they hate these people. Not one of them has any actual argument about why they hate these people. When challenged and asked a simple question — “How do you know this?”, or “Where is your evidence?”, all of them get extremely angry, talk on a tangent, and keep repeating: “Well, I READ it!”, “You could just TELL!”.
The year is 2022, you know what media and tabloids do, you have proof, yet you STILL let them form your opinions.
I can never repeat the Jerry Seinfeld classic enough: “People who read the tabloids deserve to be lied to.”
Do you really want to be one of these people?
