I do agree with some of your points but people are complex and not black and white. They are not complete Bollywood superheroes or villains… I just wrote this same thing a few days ago in response to another article that seemed a bit one-sided.
Yes it would be more dignified if Prince Harry were to live a more quiet and civilian lifestyle rather than the celebrity life he seems determined to maintain at all cost. His complaints against his family would be more believable and respectable if he were to not give such interviews.
But at the same time he grew up in a luxurious lifestyle and expecting someone to give that up is a bit unrealistic. Its like saying those of us against poverty can go live in huts and donate all our money to the poor since we would still have the basics needed to be alive. It’s all relative and of course Harry and Megan want to stay rich and in the limelight. It’s addictive. They want privacy when it suits them and they want celebrity hood when it suits them. It’s a bit hypocritical, but who wouldn’t? most of this celebrity obsessed society would want the same.
I don’t doubt that many of the issues he brings up are genuine. It is painful to feel betrayed by a parent and it is painful to watch your wife be subject to a witchhunt. The media was unfair and relentless towards Megan. But is she an angel herself? Of course not, she’s got her conniving side as well.
Neither of them are saints but neither are they complete douchebags either. It’s a bit tiring to see people always lineup on one side or the other- as the author himself stated in the story. I think the reality is more gray and personally I am in both camps- I think Harry and Megan are very ordinary human beings and nothing special, but at the same time they do have some good things they bring to the table. Just like anyone else.
