To us British we understand protocol, it’s innate in us, we understand how the firm works, we don’t have to be a member to know that. Obvious things, like who walks out of Church with the Queen and the order in which they walk behind her.
I can only assume that things must have got lost in the translation, take for example; if you leave the firm, you are not entitled to Royal protection and it certainly wasn’t withdrawn because of Archie’s skin colour.
Meghan must have seen corporate executives being sacked in a recession, where they walk out the front door with their things in a cardboard box, they stop being paid and the company car is taken back, it’s the same principal with Royal protection.
The assumption that the Royal family stopped Archie having the title Prince is also wrong, he is not entitled to the title until his grandfather Charles is on the throne and Archie moves up the pecking order, the firm did not stop Archie having the Title of Prince, he wasn’t entitled to it.
Now, the political hot potato, that a senior Royal was concerned about the skin colour of Archie. I may be wrong but I see that as a concerned father talking to his son to make him aware of the possible backlash from social media should Archie have turned out to be very dark.
It is very unlikely that we will ever know the true story as the Royal family have a policy of, “never complain, never explain.” I find the saddest thing to come out of the Oprah interview was the fact that Meghan had done no research about the Royal family prior to plunging into marriage with Harry, surely any decent actress would do some research on the character she is about to play.
It seems she did a very bad audition and then went on to play the part very badly for a very short run, someone should have warned her, it’s not a glamorous lifestyle opening a chip shop in Scunthorpe on a cold November afternoon, perhaps they could have sent her off to do Pantomime where you have to play eight shows a week, including the two matinee’s to give her some idea of what she was up against.
All very sad, but they’ve made their bed and now they have to lay in it.
