I think its erroneous and an overstatement to say this is David and Wallis all over again. They are not giving a middle finger to the royal family and demanding money as D & W did -- in fact, its the opposite -- they're saying they don't want to be financially dependent on the crown -- D & W felt it was their right and entitlement to have their lives funded by the crown.
Here's just a small and very mild sampling of what H & M are "complaining about": https://www.buzzfeednews.com/article/ellievhall/meghan-markle-kate-middleton-double-standards-royal?utm_source=dynamic&utm_campaign=bffbbuzzfeed&ref=bffbbuzzfeed&fbclid=IwAR1PTuBS5khi0uP0UwZ9d5Q5T5KphFZfEkuuc_SQi8Oor0Pb7AChpbeHWOQ
I absolutely believe they had to release their announcement ahead of the original plan (and the Queen's request) because the leaked story was going to be published and get out from under them -- FFS, we are talking about media outlets that published pictures of Diana IN THE CAR WRECKAGE. Rather than try to help get her out, they freakin' took her damn picture . . . and PUBLISHED THEM!!! When you are completely at the mercy of others to try to freakin' SAVE YOUR LIFE and they opt to exploit you rather than try to help you? And Harry, at age 12, saw all of that. AT AGE 12.
If the press is willing to sink that low, publishing a salacious story about H & M wanting to step down as senior members is nothing.
How can anyone question Harry trying to get his wife and child away from that???? I am very much a "I can handle anything; I can take care of everything for myself by myself" person and I've been in two situations (one a very bad car accident and another a medical emergency) in which I was completely dependent on assistance from others. It is probably the worst feeling ever, to know you are completely helpless. And then to have people NOT help you and instead take picture?? No matter your stance on whether she manipulated the media, that is inhuman and beyond cruel.
Run far, run fast, H & M.
And for those who are commenting about Meghan's signing an agreement with Disney to narrate a documentary, ummmm . . .. how many documentaries has Charles narrated about the environment, architecture, and other causes he cares about and no one has batted an eye? Agreements had to be signed for him to do those. If Meghan shouldn't do it, certainly the future KING should be above such banal activities!! FFS -- Edward wrote, produced, and narrated a documentary on Uncle Nazi and Wallis!
Is it because its Disney, a company associated with cartoons (but that in actuality does a LOT of nature and environment documentaries) that she's doing it for? Or is it because its Meghan doing it, despite other members of the family having done the same and it being just fine???
Oh, and ANDREW IS A FREAKIN' PEDOPHILE!!
But yeah, Meghan's not being treated any differently and SHE's the problem. Okay.
