You know, I could go with the “don’t work for the crown and don’t take a cent from the tax payer” if they had a single stream of revenue that wasn’t directly trading on their titles and connection to the royal family.
To me, they come off as people who want gravitas, global celebrity, recognition as thought leaders- but without recognition of how their only pretense to that is based on who Harry is.
Without his family, he is someone who barely graduated secondary school and struggles with a lot of emotional problems. That’s not his fault. A lot of people don’t have a degree and also are battling demons. It’s just that most of those people also don’t expect to command an audience at the United Nations.
I was really prepared to see them try to launch something substantive and it’s all just been so shallow. I don’t think anyone would have begrudged them a private life that was quiet and out of the media glare, but it’s very hard to ignore how much they want that spotlight and how little they are doing to earn it.
I mean no matter what they do they will always be Harry and Meghan. There is no getting away from that.
They *don't* take a dime from the Monarchy or the people of the UK, so what they do really is no concern of anyone. I always laugh at the fixation of their financials. It is their money. Like why do people care?
I don't think their work is shallow. No more shallow then what the others are doing if we being real honest. They are all faces of initiatives and projects. We just excuse some over others because of preference. What exactly are any of them actually doing? It is others doing the heavy lifting.
Personally I am enjoying her podcast. I never expected her to do something world changing. I don't expect that from any of them. They are who they are. Insanely privileged people.
