So how did 2020 start?
Well we have had to finally accept that Boris Johnson is our Prime minister. (That’s karma for laughing at America when Trump was elected. Karma has a way of kicking you in the balls).
Now we will be heading straight into Brexit (although I voted Remain, the way the whole process has gone on, and for so long, its been draining. So its just nice to know that something is happening! Finally, we know where we stand. Kind of. ) and now we will see how much of an impact it’ll have on us.
Also we are coming to terms that our beloved NHS may be sold off in the near future, its all very daunting and scary.
Worldwide 2020 has brought us the Tragic news in Australia with the fires. My thoughts and prayers are with all of you at this hard time.
The mass ethnic cleansing of the Uyghur muslims in China are finally getting some air time, although mostly on social media, the International stations are still widley ignoring them, as are the national. But its nice to see Celebrities voicing their concerns and raising awareness. (Although they are getting heavily critisised for it! Freedom of speech only applies for some causes!)
Then the dreaded President Trump whilst playing golf decided on the assasination of the Iranian General Qassem Suleimani and now their are talks of possible WW3. (Seriously the amount of netflix series I watch I can so picture this in my head!! talking of netflix and presidents… you guys watched Scandal? Fitz for President next please!… Oh Fitz!)
Back to the UK, Prince Phillip health is in the air, constantly in and out of hospital. Tensions rising,
And whilst we all come to terms with all of this…….. “Megxit”
And we are only on the 2nd week of January.
Right I havent really got political up to date with my posts, because sometimes im afraid to voice my opinion, because politics is very broad and very vast and everyone has an opinion of their own and I dont want to be judged for it. I think as a blogger, you have to be very careful what you say, it can be misinterpreted all too easily.
So I have decided to pick on the things which I believe to be light hearted politics… (I think(biting nails))
So lets get back to ‘Megxit’
I had decided 2020 was MY Year!! I’m ready to make it MY Decade of Decades….. but I guess so many other people have decided the same. All this news, just two weeks in……Its going to be a great year!
But seriously?? I’m not going to say could it get worse? Seriously not going to say it…. But could it?
This whole ‘Megxit’ situation has got me really reeled up. I’m a big fan of Harry and Meghan. Huge fan. I’m a big fan of everything Royal. I love the Royal family. I love William and Kate. I love the Queen. I love Britain. I believe they are mine. They belong to us. They belong to me. And because I watch The Crown on netflix (promise you netflix are not paying me for this post, though it would be nice!) I feel like I know them, they are my family, they are my friends. I laugh when they laugh, I cry for them, I Hurt for them. I Follow them on Social media, in the papers, in everything. I STALK the Royal Family. (There I said it, im obsessed- abit like Joe on YOU (netflix again))
So Im going through an emotional rollercoaster at the moment. Initially the post they sent out stating they are ‘stepping down’ gave me Joy. Who wants to be in an institute like that, its so difficult, ( Ive seen how much the Queen went through on the Crown. Its so tough!) Good on them for wanting out…….But now Im not so sure….
Meghan has been bullied by the media, theres no doubt about that, but then so has every member of the Royal family at one point. They are in the public eye, they will be scrutinised, its been that way for years. In exactly the same way Meghan was scrutinised as an actress. Its a celebrity culture. Its a tabloid culture. Its a press culture. She married a Prince! What was she expecting?
Shes not the first to be bullied, Sarah Ferguson (Prince Andrews ex-wife) because of her weight was named ‘Duchess of Pork’. Kate Middleton was accused of doing nothing more that just having babies on top of babies, and also accused of lavishly spending tax payers money when she first came into the royal family on outfits. And how about Camilla- still to this day she is bullied.
Im not saying its right to be bullied. NOT AT ALL. I just dont think that by running away it will stop the bullying, if anything they probably have made it worse for themselves. They will be more in the press then ever before. (This time without the aide and security of the Royal Family so anything can and will be published) especially if Meghan goes back to her career ( You would think that she’d be use to it by now? though I would love for her to be back on suits! (Netflix again!))
Now something else that troubled me, the fact that they made this statement without the Royal family knowing. (urm…. guys…. what were you thinking!!!???) they already have the media after them, and they throw themselves to the sharks! (Was this like a dumb and dumber moment!). Im not a royal but that hurt me!! Harry (no longer Prince!) knows exactly how the system works, why the hell??? …..Im in disbelief! Is this his first “Im going to be independent” move? because he already failed. Big time.
And now they want to be ‘Financially Independent’ whilst keeping the Royal Sussex name, but stepping down……thats abit like Kylie Jenner stating that she is ‘SELF MADE’. Ugh. to Celebrity Culture.
Wow. reading that back. I can feel my tone change. Im really hurt!
In all honesty if they wanted to be free, they deserve to be, but not the way they did it. The Queen is 93 years old! (same as my granni) Prince Phillip health is all over the place, and they throw this on her! Its such a disrespect on the family and the Monarchy. I am so so so dissapointed. Especially after the amount the Royal Family did to invite Meghan into the family. The grand wedding, Prince Charles stepping in to walk her in, the Queens gift of the ‘Sussex’ title. They went above and beyond -evan though every step of the way they were being traumatised by the media, yet we never heard a complaint off them, not about Meghan or about the media. They took it in their grace and continued, knowing its a phase they will need to overcome. If only Meghan and Harry did the same.
The other thing that troubles me is- they want to be out of the ‘limelight’ as per se. They dont like the media attention, yet Meghan has signed a million pound contract with Disney for a voiceover? Urm …..hyprocricy at its best.
It seems to me that only if the attention is on Meghan, then the attention is valid .
Phew, I got passionate there. Didnt realise I was that protective of the Royal family either.
Well to end I Cant wait for The Crown season 7- I wonder if Meghan will play herself (hehe)
Let me know how you all feel about this, would love to hear your thoughts
Love and Regards
