First South Park took its shot and then Chris Rock.
Still, he insisted: ‘I know what she’s going through, I know what Meghan Markle’s going through.
‘I know her dilemma: Black girl trying to be accepted by her white in-laws. Oh it’s hard. It’s so hard, it’s very hard – but it ain’t as hard as a white girl trying to be accepted by her black in-laws. Now that s*** is really hard.
‘Meghan Markle, I know the dilemma. I’m like, “If you black and you wanted to be accepted by your white in-laws then you need to marry a Kardashian because they accept everybody.”‘
There’s a long ignoble tradition of disgruntled British royals packing it up and moving to America, and regaling everyone with their take on how awful the British Royal family is. But unless they die young in an accident, there’s limited interest in that sort of thing even by National Enquirer readers and Oprah viewers.
Just ask Fergie.
You can only tell the same story so many times. And that’s not a strategy for a long-term career.
The Harry and Meghan twist on the disgruntled royals cliche was crying racism. But that’s all but drained. How many books, streaming shows, podcasts and whatnot can you get out of a few years in the limelight?
Even in today’s hyper-reprocessed environment, they’re about to hit a wall. And what’s Plan B?

Two multimillionaires don’t need a plan B.

The problem is half or more of those millions are essentially charity from the Crown and the British tax-payer and the other half comes from making themselves a spectacle circus show.
They won’t give up being a spectacle circus show until the gawkers stop paying to see their circus show.
That’s very neat and tidy and unfortunately doesn’t come into contact with reality. In reality the royals generate millions in tourist revenue every year. Besides which they used to be loved but there’s not been much to love apart from celebrity since Diana. You can coast for a long time on nonsense but not forever.
Familiarity does bring contempt.

I know a lot about these two as I have been following this story since 2018. Meghan is a Hollywood creature. She was living in Toronto shooting a TV series “Suits” when she hit pay dirt, met and married Prince Harry. She crashed into the British monarchy thinking she was on a Hollywood set, complete with bullying the royal staff. That was her undoing and she was mauled in the British press. Indignant, both Harry and Meghan left and went to California where neither of them have a way of making a living. So they sold their souls to Netflix and Spotify for over $100 million with the understanding they would trash the monarchy. The worst of it all, both H&M are sickening,y woke. They are horrible, horrible people.
