oh, HELL yes! and some of their screeds are shockingly, unapologetically racist.

Done in one.

The girl never stood a chance.

Though it has worked out well for the York sisters.  The British rags have been swooning over them lately, even though they were the targets for years before Markle showed up.

Dang, subby, where have you been living?  They hate her.  HATE. Her.  Basically, they can't believe Harry went for her - even though he has proven repeatedly that he is a complete dumbass and fundamentally incapable of thinking with anything other than his dick, they can't fathom that a former briefcase model is the one who got him off the market.  That she's American and black just makes it worse to them.

Isn't her fifteen minutes of fame up yet? I'd be happiest if no one ever published anything on Meghan Markle ever again.

They don't just hate her. They hate all black people.

She's a mixed-race American who has dared to sully the bloodline. Of course, they hate her. Jeebus Frist, she never stood a chance with most of them.

Ever thought it might not have anything to do with her skin color? Maybe she's just a really annoying person.

If I were to not like some white people that's okay, it's accepted they might actually be quite awful people. However if I were to admit to not liking a non-white person, I'd automatically be called a racist. People are still people regardless of skin color, and that means everyone equally has the potential to be unlikeable. Being a member of a minority doesn't magically make a person perfect.

There's definitely an element of race to her treatment by the press. However, it's fair to say that this is not the whole story. The truth is that there is a strong element within British high society that thinks the primary function of a Royal Princess is to be a politically neutral brood mare. To pump out mini royals and stfu.

Meghan isn't so much annoying, as she is vocal. And the fact that she's helped Harry to learn and grow as a person is, perversely, seen as emasculating.

Indeed, she rocked the boat. Unsurprisingly that tends to upset some people.

I do get annoyed that since she is not white you cannot make a single negative comment about her without being called a racist, which essentially leaves her as untouchable. That is daft. She is just a human, and has good and bad qualities, just like every other human.

Furthermore you can never please everyone. While some might see her as being the breath of fresh air that was much needed by a stuffy institution, others regard her as showing an unwillingness fit in with tradition and mark her as whiny and entitled.

So what's the difference between Meghan and Kate? Why does one get criticized for the same things that get the other praise? Particularly by people who haven't met either?

Because one smiles politely, offers her patronage to inoffensive charities, and has three children, whereas the other only has one child, has the 'wrong' accent, and is a *gasp* feminist.

Oh, and Kate's white.

Sort of. Though for the first 5 years of the marriage, Diana was the archetypal princess - doe-eyed and demure.

It was only when she realised that Charles had never loved her, that she started to do her own thing.

And that's when Charles' own toadies in the press and the Tory party started sharpening their knives.

Seriously, how do the Brits keep getting a pass on race?

Might the people who conquered 1/5th of the world, most of it in the global south, be maybe a bit racist? No, of course not! They were merchants doing it for the money! Taking over all those dark peoples' countries was for their own good. So what if some of them had to be killed occasionally to keep them in line? Have you heard what the Belgians did in the Congo? What's that? Winston Churchill was an outspoken racist who almost threw the trans-Atlantic alliance away because FDR made it conditional on Britain giving up her Empire? But he made such good speeches! So what if his views on non-Anglo-Saxon people were a little unenlightened?

It's boggling. France loses one war and are forever now cheese-eating surrender monkeys. The Nazis were in power for 12 years and Germany will never live down their crimes. The Confederacy was around for even less time, and we still can't get rid of its legacy. But the Brits carve out the largest empire in history and base it completely on exploitation, and people still think they can't be racist because they have cute accents.

Racism and classism, yes, but there's another layer. They cling to the worthless anachronism that is the monarchy and believe that being a royal means you have a duty to wear silly costumes and hand out trophies and medals. Harry couldn't possibly reject his God-given status, so Meghan must have brainwashed him. She's stolen a piece of their security blanket

That's a little fast and loose with the facts.

Germany has done a pretty good job atoning, at least as far as public opinion goes.  I don't think anyone today really holds a grudge with Germany because of the Nazis.  The Confederacy was around for less time, but they weren't aggressively regulated out of existence like the Nazis were.  There's been various revivals over the years of Confederate imagery and ideas, and we're currently in the middle of a culture war around Confederate imagery right now, over 150 years later.  It's not like the state of Bavaria is flying a flag with Nazi imagery in it like Mississippi's Confederate inspired flag that was finally taken down a short time ago.

Regardless of all of that, though, the British are guilty, they just do a bang up job of dodging responsibility, even if we were to only look at their 20th century colonial crimes.  Boris Johnson is the physical manifestation of this concept, managing to craft a harmless image of an eccentric uncle and somehow maintain the charade despite all the evidence to the contrary.

There's also the part that he's the handsome one, while the rest of them look a few steps short of the Habsburgs.  She didn't just steal their security blanket, she stole their physical totem.  In 50 years there's going to be a Bonapartist style movement to repatriate their offspring
