I am submitting an official motion to prevent white men from writing about Harry and Meghan's liberation.

In the interests of being clearer:

This is such a smug, privileged bit of nonsense that it's hard to know where to start, but the first problem is that it assumes that being royal is some kind of job like his own. It is not.
Secondly, the idea that the monarchy is "apolitical" is a laughable fiction that has never had its roots in truth, especially in recent history. The Black Spider Letters were all about the monarchy (Charles) being intensely interested in politics and progressive causes.
For those who don't recall the Black Spider Memos, they were Prince Charles' notes to Tony Blair about how England needed to clean up various issues including agriculture and conservation. Can't get more political than lobbying the PM!

Thirdly, the issue of Harry and Meghan is not one of duties or finances. It is of survival. Princess Diana died trying to escape the suffocating hold of the tabloids and the monarchy. Harry saw the same happening to Meghan. Escape is a necessity for them, not a cute vacation.
The idea that anyone could call a biracial woman's desire to save her family's life from physical and psychological danger is "having your cake and eating it too" is the kind of clueless British White Man thing we need less of in this world. What nonsense.
