“Prince Harry Talks About ‘Global Assault On Democracy’ In Emotional UN Address”
Prince … Talks About ‘Global Assault On Democracy’
Prince … Democracy
@aral I don't really keep up with royal intrigues, but afaik Harry sort-of renounced his position and/or was pushed out. I think the inner circle considered his new wife to be insufficiently white.
Although no newspaper will say it, he is commonly believed to be the son of one of Diana's lovers and so not an heir to the throne in the usual sense.
@bob I thought he renounced because his American wife couldn't handle the royal duties, obligations and back stabbing. She probably thought being a princess was more like how Disney portrays it and not like how The curse of the Golden Flower portrays it.
@aral @bob "the Duke of Sussex is still technically considered to be a prince, even though he wishes otherwise"
@aral For me, that is not necessarily a contradiction. Prince is just a title that he inherited.
Standing up for democracy is active engagement. You have to do something for it. And anyone can do that.
@phranck If you truly stood for democracy, the first thing you’d do is to abdicate your title in the monarchy. Monarchy is the opposite of democracy.
This is my personal Mastodon.
