Meghan Markle and Prince Harry Revelation – We Rest

Last Sunday night during prime time an interview by Oprah Winfrey with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle attracted 17 million viewers in the USA. The blogmaster did not watch but read a few of the reviews summarized by traditional and not so traditional media.

Several allegations (revelations) were introduced in the interview, however, the one that resonated with the blogmaster is the allegation the Royal family expressed a concern about the degree of blackness of the unborn Archie.

Why does the blogmaster care about the comment?

Meghan said her son Archie, now aged one, had been denied the title of prince because there were concerns within the royal family about “about how dark his skin might be when he’s born.

That was relayed to me from Harry, those were conversations that family had with him,” Meghan recounted in an interview with Oprah Winfrey aired on CBS late on Sunday.

Meghan declined to say who had aired such concerns, as did Harry. He said his family had cut them off financially and that his father Prince Charles, heir to the British throne, had let him down and refused to take his calls at one point.

The Irish Times

It was not long ago the world reacted violently to the 8 minutes and 46 seconds heinous act which triggered the resurgence of the #BlackLivesMatter movement in the USA and beyond. As a Black man living in a majority Black country full in the knowledge of the slave trade and its vestige which continue to plague our way of life two hundred years later- it was a dark revelation this time shared by insiders.

Do we need to be reminded the Queen of England is the titular head of Barbados?

There is no need to prolix on this matter. The decision by the government of Barbados to move to a Republic with haste should attract little or no opposition from Barbadians post the Oprah interview. The decision by a majority of CARICOM countries to loiter on the steps of the UK Privy Council – continuing to recognize it as final court of court is again exposed – should frame a renewed legitimate call from the citizenry to recognize the Caribbean Court of Justice (CCJ).

Since Barbados Underground came into assistance there has been voluminous writing about the pros and cons of Barbados shifting to a Republic. The blogmaster has been consistent in the view the growth of a majority Black sovereign nation must possess the cajones to recognize one of its own as head of state. After the horrific insight by Meghan AND Prince Harry on the weekend into the ethos which pervades Buckingham Palace and the royal family, all that is left to be said by ALL Bajans about if monarchy or republic is – WE REST.

  • In UK the so called “Public Debate” on this interview matter on social media does not exist as they have the internet under total and full control.

    Another issue in the tissue was Meghan was deemed not part of the firm and when she was suicidal and asked for help she was told “sorry, but..” she could not be helped as she was not on the payroll and not employed by them.

    This is all very typical of Brits onion layers of subtle and unsubtle racism behaviour manifestation in this dispensation of revelation times

    The Royal Family made money from Slave Trade via the Royal African Company (RAC) led by Duke of York, who was the brother of Charles II and later took the throne as James II.

    Harry and Meghan have been blocked off from money for leaving but Royal Family still receive large of tax payers money.

    It should lead to end of the Royal Family imho as no one wants Charles William or George to be King.

  • The comments were not made by Elizabeth or Phillip. If they had those thoughts they were wise enough to keep them private.

    I doubt it was some out of the succession line, royal racist who made those comments. That would not have had such an impact on Harry.

    I bet it was Charles and William who spewed that filth. They are next in line and will have the power to shut Archie out. AND the fractures in those relationships are obvious clues. Charles not taking calls and required “space” being admitted to between Harry. and his brother. Both shit stuffed English shirts in the traditional mould

    The aptly named Harry is Diana’s son. William belongs to Charles.

    Ms. Marple says it was Charles and William.

    So now no black Barbadian with an iota of self-respect can argue with a straight face against the new republic. Neither can one RH white Barbadian without exposing themselves.

    What say you now, Hoad girl? Should my still to be conceived grandchild be required to line the streets and wave at the future racist monarch?

    Thank you, Harry!

    Archie looks white to me as does his mother whitish Meghan who identifies as mixed race which means he has the “right” skin and not the wrong skin.

    Meghans father Thomas Markle of the Markle family is of German descent her father’s other ancestors are American settlers of English, Dutch, and Irish descent. He Mother Roslyn Loveless is African American.

    This makes Archie circa ±0.25 black.

    btw the rastaman deity robert nesta “bob” marley was also mixed race.
    His father was a white British naval captain named Norval Sinclair Marley, who was nearly 60 at the time.
    His mother Cedella Booker was 18.

    I am sure you did not see the two-hour interview. Both Harry and Meghan went out of their way to praise the Queen.
    The couple did not leave Britain because of the Royal family, no matter how bad, but because of the toxic tabloid press.
    You may not remember ho Diana was treated by the press, but on the Saturday night she died I was doing a shift on the Observer. And on that night the Palace did not say a single word.
    They left it to Tony Blair, who was in Sedgefield, who made the announcement, along with foreign secretary Robin Cooke, who was about to leave some Far East country (I think it was Singapore) and cancelled his flight. That was when those of us in the UK knew it was serious.
    At her funeral, at the tender age of 12, Harry had to walk behind his mother’s coffin – sent to an early grave by the tabloid press, who got away Scot free.
    Are you surprised that he wanted to take his young wife and child away from the UK when he saw the same behaviours?

  • Extracted from FB:-

    After reading accounts this morning of Harry and Meghan’s candid interview with Oprah on American CBS Television last night, I am convinced, even more than ever, that the time has come for the sovereign, independent state of Barbados to proceed with urgency in effecting its plan to sever its 400 year constitutional relationship with the British crown.

    To read that a member of the British Royal Family was concerned about the skin colour of Harry and Meghan’s first child speaks volumes, in my opinion, of how people of colour, including myself and other Barbadians, are still regarded at that level. It is most unfortunate but, I guess, old habits are hard to break.

    The planned break from the British monarchy, which the Mia Mottley government announced last year and is scheduled to coincide with our next anniversary of Independence on November 30 this year, must now proceed at full speed, coronavirus disruption or not. This way, we as a majority people of colour will fully complete the process of our Independence and self-determination which began in 1966.

    My preference is for the new Barbados to be styled “The Commonwealth of Barbados” instead of “Republic of Barbados”, borrowing from the model of our neighbour Dominica. Long live the right of Barbadians today, the descendents of African foreparents who were abused and exploited over 400 years by British colonialists in their quest for wealth, to take charge of our destiny instead of continuing to cling to the coat tails of the so-called mother country and taking pride in the nickname of Little England.

    In the words of our National Anthem, “The Lord has been the people’s guide for past 300 years. Will Him still on our side, we have no doubts or fears. Upward and onward we shall go, inspired, exulting, free and greater will our nation grow. in strength and unity.”

    Despite many imperfections, Barbados is inherently a good country. As a people, we must learn to love and embrace each other more, despite whatever differences we have. There is strength in diversity. May God bountifully bless the coming Commonwealth of Barbados!

    Should they work to support themselves or depend on taxpayers? Your argument lacks reason. I am still not clear what you expect them to do.
    If he tries to drive an Uber the tabloids will try to chase him through every Californian back street. The problem with people in Barbados is that they have no experience of tabloid journalism.
    They read the occasional nonsense, but they are not prepared to learn. They know what they know and that is it. They do not appreciate how scared Britain, from top to bottom, is of the tabloid press.
    The problem in the UK is the tabloid press. David Cameron and Leveson had an opportunity to tame that wild beast and failed. They were timid.
    A young Asian lawyer on the Leveson team rang me twice (I wonder why they got an Asian to call me) to ask me to give evidence. I refused, knowing full well they could have subpoenaed me, and I know they considered it, but they did not.
    Had I been dragged before them I would have said what I now say about the Royals, and more. It is the press, stupid.

    Your reasoning is nonsense. What has two young kids losing a mother got to do with Harry’s grieving and its long-term consequences. Is grieving now an exclusive thing?
    You, nor the others, have not said what Harry and Meghan have done to merit this attack, especially from Barbadians?
    Say in a single sentence what they have done. By the way, he is a young man. You are legally an adult at the age of 18, does that mean you are not young? Some 18 yr olds are still in school.

    I know a lot of Barbadians are obsessed with being a Republic, but no-one is stopping them. The president made it a promise in her 52-page Queen’s Speech in September. We are now in the 6th month and still not a word.
    Why do Bajans always look to blame other’s for their incompetence and lack of ideas? If you want answers, then look inwards. (Unquote).

    That’s a valid observation. But your appointed president has a readymade alibi for postponing the inevitable.

    She can always claim that the new version of the virus called Covid-20 has put a monkey wrench in the republic works.

    Turning Barbados into a republic is going to involve a rather costly and time-consuming exercise.

    It cannot be a rush-job or last minute event by simply announcing in Her Majesty Parliament that w.e.f the 1st of October (coincidentally, your president’s birthday) Barbados will henceforth be called the “Republic of Barbado(e)s” with the head of State being called ‘President(ess)’ instead of “Governor-General”.

    Maybe the British Monarch (or her ‘pending’ successor) through ‘Her’ UK government will have to grant the necessary instruments of termination of an almost 400 years of a loyally-binding royal relationship.

    There must be a prior re-working of the existing Constitution even if the necessary re-branding exercise occurs after the acceptance and passing in the Parliament the ‘Revised’ Constitution.

    Let the current administration start with the RBPF and the BDF by getting rid of their officers’ pips and Crowns along with the other forms of British Royal regalia and parading costumes.

    A lot of people are going to be severely letdown when their Sir (Lord) and Lady (Dame) titles become socially meaningless and politically redundant.

  • When the news broke that Harry was “courting” a “mixed race” actress in Toronto, the first thing the tabloids printed was that she was “straight outta Compton” and referenced her battle- scarred neighbourhood. Then they printed that she was a porn actress because some idiot cobbled together some scenes out of her television series and inserted them into a porn movie.

    Jump forward to after their child was born, a BBC presenter NOTE BBC compared their child to an ape, say whatever you want about the US but any commentator in the US that made a statement like that would have been given their walking papers but in Britain an apology was sufficient.

    Then there were the subtle racist acts e.g. a woman who is married to the Queen’s cousin appearing at a luncheon attended by Meghan with a blackamoor brooch pinned to her dress; at no time did the “Royal family” come to her defense; it was left to Harry her then boyfriend to admonish the Press for the way they were treating his girlfriend after the news first broke about their relationship. There were countless other acts too numerous to mention.

    Who would want to raise their children in such an environment?

    What path have they chosen? The man’s wife was unhappy in the situation and he decided to step back from frontline Royal duties (he could not unborn himself), left the country because he knew if he remained in the UK his life would have been a misery, then because of CoVid and the threat of kidnap and because a tabloid had revealed his address, he moved to the US, where t hey lived for a time in Tyler Perry’s home until they bought their own.
    What have they done that was wrong? Ignore@Lawson, he is retired and bored. You seem to want them to come out fighting for blackism, but the man just wants to protect his family. What support system did Harry have?

    They left the comfort of the Royal family to establish an independent life and save their marriage. Are you saying they should not have got married?
    What have they done that is wrong? And how can they correct it? You still have not said. I am sure they did not invite you to intervene in their problems with the Royal family. You have admitted not even seeing the interview, yet you have strong views, got from the tabloid press.
    In the interview, they said the problem was the tabloid press, not the Royal family. So you are saying they do not even know what is their problem? The tabloids drove Harry’s mother to an early grave.
    I am sure they did not drag you in to their business, nor I. Ignore it and concentrate on Barbados issues, where you have more knowledge.

    After this interview, our Supreme Leader should proclaim the People’s Republic of Barbados in a coup d’état and appoint herself as the first President for Life.

    Of course, the previous constitution will then be suspended. But what comes instead?

    Our president should appoint a constitutional commission next year to submit a new constitution to the people for a vote by 2029. For the period from March 2021 to 2029 our president should declare the existing emergency legislation as the new constitution, confirm her ministers and parliamentarians (i.e., not the opposition troublemaker), and govern through emergency directives.

    Elections would then be suspended for the time being, the senate dissolved and freedom of expression in the hands of Charles Jong. Sounds wonderful to me.

    I understand. Ironically, Meghan is a strong advocate of women’s rights. That too was mentioned in the interview.
    That is what made it so hard when the Royal underlings took away her passport, her driving licence, her keys and stopped her from talking to her friends. She could not even go out to lunch with friends. She was a prisoner, a modern slave.
    As to why Harry did not seek help for his suicidal wife, he was too embarrassed. Can you imagine the story hitting the tabloids? New Royal is mad, says Palace source.
    As soon as she got her passport back she left the country with her child and husband. As to BU, have a word with the chairman.
    He likes tabloidism, but knows nothing about it. The same way he likes talking about finance, but does not have a clue.
