The Duke of Sussex has no options that will leave him or those close to him unharmed
This is really well done, Guy - and I agree with what you say. There are no winners in this situation, but thank you for charting the course of Harry's career (or lack of it) to date. I hope he's able to find peace at some point; I really do.
Best summary of this sorry saga I’ve seen.
I can't comment directly on what may or may not have happened in this man's life. What he has gone through or suffered. But his actions seem to lack something that is lacking in many people today. Discretion. The public washing of dirty sheets has never, ever, been a good tactic in seeking to resolve family and interpersonal problems. How many times on a train or bus do you hear one end of a conversation concerning the most private and challenging details of a persons life as they seek support and justification of their actions from a friend or allie? Due to his status he is able to, via the press, the Netflix series (haven't watched it), his book (won't be buying it), interviews such as trailed on US TV (not interested) to build a group of sympathetic supporters. On my last work day before Christmas a lady, somewhat worse for wear, got on my bus and started to share her personal problems (I'll always get the blame etc, etc) with the rest of we passengers. Her audience were the passengers on the 61 bus to Chislehurst. His are millions around the globe. Both are, in my view, wrong to air things publicly. Share your problems with your family, your friends, your therapist, your God. But, please, not to the passengers on the 61 bus to Chislehurst, or on mass media.
Good article. And sadly I also can't see how this can now end well for anyone.
A very damaged child has become a very damaged adult. Treatment by the media of his wife has been horrendous, but he seems incapable of managing his personal relationships, seeing it all play out publicly in such a dysfunctional way is painful.
There. Second article I’ve commented on! 😳🤣
As I have said before, he has made a colossal error, one he will bitterly regret. I have little interest in either of them or anything they might say on camera or write in a book. I don’t believe for a moment that any member of the immediate Royal Family said anything that could be construed as racist. Did sundry hangers on do so? Almost certainly. Did the UK print media treat her disgracefully? Of course they did. I believe they had an opportunity to appear as the victim of our gutter Press but they missed that by running away and bleating on US television. My fear is they will, in desperation to keep the story alive, cast some aspersions against Her Late Majesty, Queen Elizabeth (I’m Scottish). I see no way back for them unless their New Year resolution is to keep their own counsel. Unlikely I would suggest.
It’s a good article.
