Prince Harry and Meghan Markle Will Probably Never Return to the Royal Family After Making These Comments
This progressive thinking couple knew that they couldn’t remain silent members of the royal family any longer. However, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex weren’t willing to cut ties with Queen Elizabeth outright. They chose to broker a trial separation that would include revisiting their choice in one year. At that time, the couple could choose to return to their previous working royal jobs.
But as more time passes with Harry and Meghan still making headlines, it’s becoming apparent that nothing will ever go back to the way it was. Especially now that the couple is getting political.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex used to subtler about their beliefs
Most fans knew where Harry and Meghan stood on the political spectrum even before they quit the royal family. Though royals are forbidden from voting in elections or publicly endorsing political candidates, some offhand comments plus the charities the couple associated with made it clear that both aligned with more a more liberal outlook.
Now that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have made a formal split, they’re no longer forced to abide by the royal custom of remaining politically neutral. Ever since moving to Los Angeles, Harry and Meghan have been getting more and more involved in causes that showcase these beliefs.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have become outspoken political activists
After Megxit, Harry and Meghan spent time on Vancouver Island, Canada, before moving to LA on a more permanent basis. They haven’t been working in any formal capacity, but they did make a huge amount from a speaking engagement early in the year. The couple is gearing up to launch their new foundation, Archewell, sometime after the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic dies down.
All along the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have been speaking out against racial injustice especially after the death of George Floyd. Prince Harry and Meghan are fervent supporters of the Black Lives Matter organization. Also, they are intent on having “uncomfortable” conversations about history, race, and injustice. The public statements they made have made it very clear how the couple feels about these current issues.
Queen Elizabeth may not agree with Harry and Meghan making statements
Her Majesty would never openly reveal her feelings about Harry and Meghan’s public comments, however, some royal followers assume she’s not happy that they’ve become so politically motivated in recent months.
While speaking at the 2020 Diana Awards ceremony, the prince said he and Meghan agreed that their generation and previous generations had not done enough to “right the wrongs of the past,” CNN reported.
“Institutional racism has no place in our societies, yet it is still endemic. Unconscious bias must be acknowledged without blame to create a better world for all of you,” he said.
Harry and Meghan aren’t holding back anymore
Besides racial equality, Harry and Meghan are openly committed to combatting climate change and promoting mental health awareness. While some of these issues are seen as universal, in this tense political climate they can also be quite polarizing. Without the queen dictating where to draw the line, Harry and Meghan are free to say whatever they want about the issues they care about.
Making declarations for political causes will make it difficult, if not impossible, for the Duke and Duchess of Sussex to return to the royal family. If they even want to.
