So Megan wants her
voice to get the freedom to use her voice to protest against any and
all things and people she dislikes. That is a role for the second
tier Suits actress: not for a member of “the Firm”. The firm
understands that in a xx monarchy, the royal family stays out of the
political fray and supports the policies of the government of the
day. Charities and causes are scrutinized and all members of the
family have faced criticism for their interests . . . whether it was
Charles with his xx farming or Anne with her horses.
Megan auditioned for roles for years . . . and when you get the part
you play it: not some other role that you wanted to play. Or you
don’t take the part. You don’t audition for the maid and then expect
to descent the grand staircase decked out by Cartier.
But when Megan met Prince Harry she decided she could change the
rules. Auditioning for the part of a support player: support to the
Prince, to the Crown, to the nation . . . she decided she liked the
pay and the perks . . . lavish lifestyle, grand residences, your
picture on the front pages, adoring fans and a work load of her
choosing. She could be a stay-at-home Mum or gad about the globe
with endless banquets and photo-ops with good causes, heads of state
and the occasional celeb.
Hers was the little girls’ dream come true: being found by the
handsome prince and the glass slipper fitting and living happily
ever after in his castle.
So it all came together.
But Megan didn’t want the support role. She wanted to be the star.
She wanted the casting director to give her the role she deemed
deserved. The freedom to do as she pleased, say what she wanted and
treat the Queen as an interfering in-law.
Doing good the royal way was boring so she left behind damp old
England with its protocols and what can and cannot be done and,
dragging behind Harry, she returned to the freedom of California
with its adoration of the rebel.
Pity Harry didn’t take the time to let her do the rehearsals and
learn the role . . . before deciding to welcome the viper into the
nest. Megan did for Harry what she did with her own family. Reject
them and cut them off: although Harry’s family did get to go to her
How shameful second-rate that Harry chose to abandon a lifetime of
training and public service to play the supporting role to her ego.
