Meghan Markle and Prince Harry took the world by shock after taking an aim at the Commonwealth first of its ‘uncomfortable past’.
It seems the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have now hit a fight with Queen Elizabeth II as they talked to the junior leaders from the Queen’s Commonwealth Trust via video-link.
British presenter Piers Morgan destroyed the set for “attacking” the monarch by facing out the Commonwealth’s past of “colonialism and the subjugation of peoples.”
“There’s a dangerous point to this which is that these two quit the Royal Family because they needed to go and do their own thing in Hollywood,” said the Good Morning Britain host.
“That’s fine. It’s their decision, it’s their life. But if they’re going to begin attacking the Commonwealth, and the Queen is the head of the Commonwealth, then they’re choosing a proper political debate,” he added.
“Therefore they put themselves behind in the news program. Then what will result is they’re going to get, in my view, rightly criticized for any of the things they’re saying here.”
“They will then play the victim and say ‘how dare you to criticize us’. And so the circus goes on,” he said.
Editor of the Daily Mail, Andrew Pierce gave Morgan’s statement a nod of agreement as he said the couple should do a bit of research on history before talking about Commonwealth, which, according to him, was launched to “atone for the crimes of the British Empire.”
Earlier, speaking to the youth leaders, Harry, addressing the historic injustice involving the slave trade, added, “So many people have done such an incredible job of acknowledging the past and trying to right those wrongs, but I think we all acknowledge there is so much more still to do.”
“It’s not going to be easy and in some cases, it’s not going to be comfortable but it needs to be done because of guess what, everybody benefits,” he said, according to the news outlet.
The Duke, who recently spoke about “endemic” institutional racism, said, “The optimism and the hope that we get is from listening and speaking to people like you, because there is no turning back now, everything is coming to ahead. Solutions exist and change is happening far quicker than it ever has done before.”
Markle said, “We’re going to have to be a little uncomfortable right now because it’s only in pushing for that discomfort that we go to the other side of this and find the place where a great tide raises all ships.
“Equality does not put anyone on the hindfoot, it puts us all on the same footing, which is a basic human right,” she added.
