WHEN you want someone to get down to the nub of the issue, go to Mark Steyn. In this Fox News appearance, Steyn sums up the real motivation behind the Markles’ desire to take a step back from royal duties and become celebrities.
Steyn points out the cake-ism (having your cake and eating it) of the Markle plan. ‘They say they want to be financially independent but have started a website called Sussex Royal.com. Therefore, the way they want to get financially independent is to trade on the fact that they are members of the royal family.’
Steyn also explains why members of the royal family should not marry people in showbusiness. ‘When you are a celebrity you are treated like royalty but when you are actual royalty you are treated like garbage.’ For instance, when Kelly Clarkson does a show it’s all about Kelly Clarkson, but when a minor duchess goes to a hospital in New Zealand, it’s all about the sick kids.
And that, my friend, is the truth. Meghan wants the celebrity life, where it is about her and not about doing your duty.
