This is TRUE loonytick..
The problem however, may be that if she is habituated to expressing controversial opinions, that is something that must STOP [instantly and permanently] the moment she is engaged to Prince Harry.
Of course. I'm just saying I don't buy that stopping those statements will be so hard for her, especially in a situation where she moves to a society that's already more like what she seems to want.
Like someone else said already, there are a number of examples of strong-minded, independent women (Maxima, for example) adapting well to the practice of exercising "royal neutrality." Being able to be a bigger help to charitable groups than ever before in their lives probably helps scratch that "wanting to make a difference, not just sit back and watch" itch.
Honestly, I think history has shown us that the royals most at risk of speaking out of turn about politics are always those born to the job. And it makes sense, really. Never in their entire lives do they have a chance to just speak as individuals about those things without worrying who can hear, and it must be hard to keep that "steam" from building up and boiling over at some point. Of course, if they're to be successful they also look at the charitable royal work as a way of diverting those impulses, but unlike the spouses who marry in, the blood royals are so used to that kind of thing that it probably takes a little more effort to look at those activities as a good substitute for speaking out.
