‘She’s rich, what is she talking about?’ Harry and Meghan’s lecture on oppression falls flat

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle doubled down on their claims of being oppressed during an awards ceremony Tuesday evening.

Appearing at the Robert F. Kennedy Human Rights foundation’s Ripple of Hope Awards show to reportedly receive an award for fighting alleged racism in the Royal Family, the infamous couple lectured the audience about oppression.

The lecture was delivered slowly and methodologically, with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle each speaking one after the other.

“Bobby Kennedy said, ‘Each time a man stands up for an ideal or acts to improve the lot of others or strikes out against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope,'” Prince Harry began, according to the Daily Express.

“The enduring dream of RFK of a just and peaceful world is so much more than a simple hope. It’s a direct ask, a specific challenge, a call to action, a test of individual courage and collective spirit,” Markle said next, continuing the thought.

“And his appeal to humanity is as relevant today as it was in 1966 when he stood before the University of Cape Town, a place we’ve visited and hold close to our hearts. And he delivered a vision for the common good of society. He also said those ripples build a current which can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance,” she added.

Concluding the lecture, Harry then added, “And as we all face a complete and challenging time in the world, we choose the path of optimism of care for each other and our communities. We understand this honor, not about the culmination of a life’s work, but instead, and in many ways for us, a beginning.”

Their woe-is-me remarks provoked mockery.

The couple has faced intense criticism ever since they left the royal family. But not because they left the family. Rather, they’ve faced criticism for talking so much trash about the royal family and, specifically, claiming the family is racist.

Markle is half-black, and since day one she’s seized on this attribute to portray herself as some grand victim of the allegedly evil, racist British Royal Family.

Indeed, Markle pulled the same stunt again Tuesday by bringing up her widely-panned claim made last year that her experience dealing with the royal family had made her suicidal.

She said she’d made the remarks because “I don’t want anyone to feel alone. … We all need to, when we can, if we feel brave enough, to just speak honestly about your own experience. It gives other people space and the courage to do the same, but more than that to really feel like you’re not alone, because I think that is often what can be the largest hindrance when you feel that way, you don’t see a way out.”

“Look, I was really ashamed to say it at the time and ashamed to have to admit it to Harry especially, because I know how much loss he has suffered, but I knew that if I didn’t say it, then I would do it. I just didn’t want to be alive anymore,” Markle added, according to Marca, a Spanish newspaper.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s appearance at the award show Tuesday night came only days before the upcoming release of their Netflix docu-series. According to reports, in the docu-series, the couple triples down on their claims of oppression.

“Harry and Meghan will [in the docuseries] discuss how they felt their best interests were not being represented by the palace, and they’ll talk about being victims of the palace media machine,” a source told Page Six.

“Harry and Meghan will claim they were bullied by the palace. What will become clear is that they suggest their trials and tribulations tie in with the greater issues in the world, such as racism,” another source added.

This news also provoked backlash:

The fact is that none of their allegations of alleged racism and palace bullying have ever been confirmed to be 100 percent accurate.

In fact, many critics like British commentator Piers Morgan believe the allegations are complete works of fiction.

Morgan is so confident in this belief that he left his longtime gig on “Good Morning Britain” last year after he was placed under investigation for the apparent crime of not believing Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s story.
