While giving an unusually raw look at the toll life under the microscope can take on one’s psyche, even a royal psyche, Meghan and Harry wouldn’t have been nearly as free to express their opinions as they were in the Last month you would have stayed full-time with the “company”.
“I wasn’t sure what to tell you,” Meghan said in a video message about the death of May 25th George Floyd After a Minneapolis police officer (since his release) who pleaded not guilty of second degree murder held his knee by Floyd’s neck for nearly nine minutes. “I wanted to say the right thing … I realized that the only wrong thing is not to say anything.”
Which is basically the exact opposite approach that the royal family has historically taken with so many things, big or small.
On July 1, Meghan and Harry had a virtual chat with young executives at the Queen’s Commonwealth Trust and spoke openly about racism and inequality. Calling the ongoing protests and apparently heightened awareness around the world, Meghan said “a moment of reckoning” and said, “This self-reflection acknowledges what mistakes we have all made. Each of us, individually, what have we done in our past? … So many people say, “I have to own this.”
On the other hand, so many people do not take any responsibility for what plagues society.
“When it comes to institutional, systemic racism, it’s there and it stays there because someone somewhere benefits,” Harry said. “We cannot deny or ignore the fact that we were all brought up and brought up to see the world differently. However, once you realize these prejudices exist, you have to acknowledge them.”
Meghan added, “It’s not just in the big moments, it’s in the quiet moments where racism and subconscious prejudice lie and flourish. It makes it confusing for many people to understand the role they play in it, both passive as well as active. “”
