CLAY COUNTY — Meghan Markle and Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex, recently spoke with Oprah Winfrey about the fallout of their relationship with the Royal Family and it’s hard to go anywhere without hearing about it.
Markle and the Prince already made headlines by breaking away from the Royal family, thus breaking a centuries longstanding tradition. In time, the reasons for why continue to grow darker as Markle and the Prince shed more light on the issues they have with Queen Elizabeth, Prince Phillip, Prince Charles and others.
Critics of the Royal family have praised the couple for speaking against the Queen and others, while some are calling this a publicity ploy by the two. We asked Clay Today readers what their thoughts on the subject were for this week’s Facebook Question of the Week.
“We didn’t throw their tea into the harbor to care about [the Royal family’s mess],” reader Shayne Awais said, alluding to the Boston Tea Party of 1773.
Teri Hartley said she didn’t fall for what the two-hour interview between the couple and Oprah had to offer. She responded and said Markle and Oprah are trained actors and the two put on a quite a performance for the cameras. Yolanda Vailliere agreed, and said Markle appears “starved for attention” and is in need of “professional counseling.”
“They moved [to the U.S.] for supposedly a ‘quiet life away from the media,’ yet all they seem to do is go out hunting for it at every opportunity,” reader Karen Fey said. “Maybe they should go live on a little private island or somewhere like that.”
Both Susan Chandronnet and Jalaine Hoy said America has its own problems to worry about rather than the problems of the Royal family and the fallout they’re facing after the two-hour interview held earlier this month.
“We’ve got bigger things to be concerned about in our country than a [royal whose feelings are hurt],” Chandronnet said.
Hoy said her own country, the United States, has its own trouble. Not a fan of President Joe Biden, Hoy said she’s worried about the security of the nation with Biden as the Commander-in-Chief, not the Royal family.
