So whats all the fuss and drama over Harry and Meghan not wanting to be members of the Firm ? In all honesty would anyone want to join in with that lot ? The Queen is the spider in the center of the web , probably with good intentions she houses and feeds her adult children keeping them dutifully royal , you only have to look at Edward and andrew to see that theyre stuck in permanent reverse , imaginary jobs to make them seem useful, a few worthy charity jobs , its a tradition dating to Victorian times and sadly the Royals have never moved beyond that . Minor royals have always been traditionally a bit thick and dutiful, grateful for the queen keeping them on the Firm .
Once they were huge celebrities but celebrity has moved on, its all Instagram and Twitter and marketing . The only reason people recognise the queen these days is from her picture on banknotes theres more excitement over some sucker lipped influencer dating a reality show nobody .
So along comes Meghan , self made very media savvy and steals our prince , hes never been happier , hes an adoring Labrador husband trotting one step behind his exotic missus , wondering how the gangly ginger baldy pulled this bit of stuff , long may this last .
William has produced 3 kids so theirs no need for a spare heir , wouldnt be surprised if he pops out another this year before Kates ovarys shrivel and die , bit of positive publicity and all that .
There was all the squealing about Harry and Meghan not spending Xmas with granny but in the great modern compromise they went to her mothers this year , better than spending time with dodgy Uncle Andy , freezing and huddled over a 2 bar electric fire in Norfolk , then exterminating the local wildlife on boxing day.
So i expect theres been a bit of a showdown , they arent needed by the Firm so off to somewhere warm and with good plumbing and internet they are going , yes they will be an endless embarrassment as members of modern celebrity culture . But good luck to them
