Wallis Simpson was vilified by the British public after her love for the king (and vice versa) led to his abdication. The public were also upset that by abdicating, the King’s younger Brother George, (QE2’s Father) a shy, sickly man was ‘thrown to the wolves’ a year before WW2 commenced. Edward’s abdication was more to do with the fact he was marrying a divorcee, it was forced upon them, and times were very different. Harry is a ‘different kettle of fish,’ ok, he also married an American divorcee, but Meghan was accepted with open arms and the Brits were excited about this young Royal couple being a part of the monarchy. Harry still has animosity against the media, blaming them partly for the death of his Mother, Diana. The completely farcical racist accusations by Meghan against the Brits helped their exit. Wallis Simpson wanted to be a part of the Monarchy, Meghan originally liked the idea but weighed up the restrictions on her woke lifestyle and thought better of it. Both Harry and Edward fell in love with strong women, Meghan should take a leaf out of Wallis’ book, she kept her word to NOT discuss the Monarchy, and kept this promise until the end of her days, I am not so sure that the liberal minded Meghan shares the same principles.
The point is-the monarchy always wins.
