I feel like Meghan comes off the worst in that exchange what with the other participants being dead and dead-adjacent.

I'm reading the Queen's biography right now.  One of the things Philip said about his difficult childhood, which is typical of the WWII generation, is "you just got on with it".  They didn't dwell on their feelings, they kept calm and carried on.

At the risk of generalizing, people of Queen Elizabeth's generation didn't talk about their feelings much. My grandparents and their siblings were all born between 1890 and 1920 and if you asked them how to deal with emotional problems their advice would amount to "focus on the positive and ignore the negative". Hell, that's advice right out of a Bing Crosby song that both my mom and grandmother would quote as if something was bothering me as a kid. This is a generation that didn't have time nor tolerance for naval gazing or wallowing in self pity.

I had read this about Diana decades ago. She was dying of loneliness at some points.
Charles was alway out playing polo or that playing with that horse he ended up marrying.

Not to defend any racism the D of S experienced from the royal family or palace staff, but it seems she did little research into the traditions of the family she was marrying into or their personalities. A little light reading would dissuade anyone of the expectation that Elizabeth or Philip would be members of the "let's talk about our feelings" brigade.

Mine would say: "Hope for the best, prepare for and expect the worse. That way you're never surprised".

Think about why this matters. You will then realize how worthless you are.

You realize that you read a tabloid news article, right? That nothing in the headline actually came from anyone other than agenda-driven sensationalist writers?

If you're tilted, then it sounds like they accomplished exactly what they were setting out to do. Stop letting yourself be led around by the nose.
