Prince Harry and Meghan Markle intend to take advantage of their new freedom to say out loud what they have been thinking quietly for years. Since moving to Los Angeles, the Sussexes have decided that they will no longer follow Crown protocol and give their advice. Whether it is Donald Trump, racism in the United States, the place of women in the world … Archie’s parents are committed without doing it halfway. And if their speeches are criticized, they are also widely welcomed. After a new strong and authentic speech from Meghan Markle at a summit that was close to her heart, the Duchess found her husband for a long interview with the Evening Standard which risks annoying the fervent defenders of the silence imposed by the Crowned. In it, Prince Harry explained in particular that his meeting with the Métis actress had allowed him to “wake up” to the subject of racial inequalities. “I didn’t realize that there were so many problems in the UK and around the world,” the Duke said.
“You know, when you walk into a store with your kids and you just see white dolls, you think it’s weird,” Prince Harry continued. “And I use that as an example of how we , white people, don’t always realize what it must be like for someone of another color to live in a world created by whites for whites. ” At his side, Meghan Markle returned to the murder of George Floyd and the many demonstrations that followed in the United States. Together, installed on the other side of the Atlantic, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex want to get involved. “As long as structural racism exists, there will be generations of young people of color who will not start their lives with the same equality of opportunity as their white peers, the couple wrote. And as long as this continues, the untapped potential will not unfold. will ever realize. ”
Changing “structural racism”
Emancipated from the British royal family, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle would like to fight against racism and inequalities despite the complicated sanitary conditions. “We’ve all had to adjust to how we can have the most impact possible within the confines of what’s going on with Covid-19. Like all of you, we are doing our best and hope that our passion and commitment will always be felt because they have certainly not weakened, “assured Meghan Markle, who also allowed herself some confidences about her son Archie. “We’re doing well. Archie is so cool. We’re very lucky with our little boy,” the happy mom said. He’s so busy he’s everywhere. We’re so lucky. ” Still attached to his country of origin, Prince Harry called on the British to launch major discussions and changes on the “structural” racism that exists there.
