Kate Middleton’s Uncle Went on a Major Rant About Prince Harry and Meghan Markle
In fact, the pair have been using their platform to speak out against institutional racism and other things plaguing our society. However, their outspokenness hasn’t been embraced by some. In fact, it prompted Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge’s uncle to go on a rant against them.
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have been speaking out against racism
Though they spent some time away from the spotlight following the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, and their move to California, the Sussexes have been using their platform to speak out lately.
Meghan gave an emotional speech on Black Lives Matter back in June. Also, the pair have gotten candid about global racism and its effects. However, it’s the Sussexes’ recent discussions about racism in the U.K., something Meghan experienced first hand, that has reportedly put people on edge.
“If you are white and British, the world you see often looks just like you—on TV, in media, in the role models celebrated across our nation. That is not a criticism; it’s reality,” the Sussexes wrote in an article for the Evening Standard. “Many recognize this, but others are not aware of the effect this has on our own perspective, our own bias, but also the effect it has on young people of color.”
The British royal family is no longer commenting on Prince Harry and Meghan Markle
Though Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Charles are reportedly in constant contact with the Sussexes, it seems that the pair still have some lingering tensions with other royals.
News of the duo’s mega-watt deal with Netflix reportedly caught the royal family off guard. Apparently, the senior working royals feel that the deal will take the focus off of the good work that they are doing. Also, though distance has reportedly helped Prince Harry and Prince William’s relationship, the brothers are no where near as close as they’ve been.
The Sussexes comments about voting and colonization have also ruffled more than a few feathers. However, the royal family’s policy about Megxit has been not to comment on Meghan or Prince Harry.
Daily Mail reporter Rebecca English shared Buckingham Palace’s response to Harry’s voting comments on Twitter. She wrote, “They are not commenting on this. The Duke is not a working member of the Royal Family and any comments he makes are made in a personal capacity.”
Kate Middleton’s uncle just went on a major rant about Meghan Markle and Prince Harry
Obviously, racism is a touchy subject, especially for people who want to deny their own privilege or the fact that it exists. Apparently, it was too much for Kate’s uncle, Gary Goldsmith to handle. Goldsmith is Kate’s mother, Carole Middleton’s brother.
In a now-deleted LinkedIn rant, Goldsmith wrote via The Sun,
With so much stuff going on in the world, still these two muppets are craving attention. Please shut the F up and bring up their child and stop talking, let alone demanding. Harry you have lost our love and respect. Meghan you are a wrong’n. Now hush please we are kinda busy saving lives and an economy.
It looks like the Sussexes really struck a nerve with Goldsmith. We should note that everyone has a right to their opinion. Also, several things can exist at once. Like the U.S. the U.K. can have structural racism and be battling COVID-19 while keeping the economy afloat.
