For years now, two huge things have been happening simultaneously in the UK press regarding the Duchess of Sussex: 1) the tabloid press has thrown racist tropes, racist dog-whistles and flat-out racist sh-t at Meghan, Harry and Archie and 2) the British media has denied that they’ve been at all racist in their coverage, gaslighting the Sussexes and acting as if the Sussexes are crazy for even suggesting that the treatment they’ve gotten in the media is in any way unfair, racist or disgusting. Remember that Rebecca English article in the Mail? Well, the Sun wanted to one-up that sh-t. So this is their cover today (above). Racist as f–k. And just like Becky English’s use of “niggling” months ago, they absolutely, 100% know what they’re doing.
In other dumbf–k news about how British tw-ts treat the Sussexes, these asinine quotes have been making the rounds this week as well:
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are ‘pointless in self-exile’ and it would have been ‘great to have heard’ the Duke supporting the NHS during the Covid-19 crisis like the Cambridges have, a royal biographer has claimed. The Duke, 36, and Duchess of Sussex, 39, are currently living in their $14 million Californian mansion with eighteen-month-old son Archie, having stepped back from royal duty in March.
Royal expert Hugo Vickers said Prince Harry is ‘isolated from his family, the army, his friends, the Commonwealth’ in the US, telling The Telegraph: ‘It’s a pointless existence in self-exile.’
Meanwhile he compared the Duke’s actions to those of Prince William, 38, and Kate Middleton, 38, adding: ‘During the NHS clapping, I thought how, after the Cambridges clapped, it would have been great to have heard from him.’
Hugo said Prince Harry had been doing ‘such a good job’ and ‘getting a lot out’ of royal life ahead of Megxit. He explained that the Duke’s success in the army had been ‘good for him’, while the Invictus Games was ‘hugely successful.’ The royal expert said it ‘would have been great’ to hear Prince Harry support the NHS at the height of the Covid-19 crisis, like the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge did.
I mean, the “point” of the self-exile was to go out on their own terms before Prince Incandescent With Rage found a way to exile them to an African backwater (William considered sending them to Australia or Canada, but thought they would get too much attention). The “point” of the self-exile was to walk away from the racist, sexist and toxic abuse they suffered at the hands of the press, the courtiers and the royal family. So the exile isn’t “pointless.” And if the British people are satisfied with Will and Kate clapping once for frontline workers while also going on a superspreader Covid Choo-Choo Tour, so be it. I mean, I get it, Will and Kate are all you have left. You have to kiss their lazy asses. *chuckle*
