    It also embodies a model of gender roles and relations that I thought we'd moved past.

Spouses can and do ruin family relationships. My brothers’s wife ruined ours.
    I think we have to be careful not to see too much through our own lenses. How would we know if there is really a split between the brothers?

    Prince Harry has talked before about lesving The Royal Family’s firm. I think it is great that his own little nuclear family gave him the impetus to GTFO.

    If you watch their body language when together you can see something is different. Also I think harry briefly eluded to it in a interview.

    Sky news says they stand to make 500 million in first year marketing their Sussex brand. I think it's really sad how they treated the queen, who is same age as my mom and a very heroic figure. I remember my mother telling me that during the war,they stayed in London during the bombing because their subects couldn't leave.

    Perhaps it has a bit of something to do with the color of her skin, and not the content of her character?

    Well, in my opinion, they have made a decision on what they would like to try to do with their lives and I wish them the best! It can be scary taking a new path in life - especially such a public one - so I wish them well and lots of happiness.

    Harry is the prince who was consorting with prostitutes and a drug dealer in Las Vegas before he met Megan. People including other members of the royal family should be glad he is happily married and not devolving into another Prince Andrew. Diana would have liked to go to North America and if she had she might still be alive today. Fergie earned a living as a weight loss spokesperson. There are other ways to be a royal than the path the Queen would like.

    A lot of speculation going on and I don't believe a word in the press. I think they will find their niche. More power to them wanting to get out of the Royal spotlight. I think the press has been brutal to her.

    It might be something like this:
    https://www.theatlantic.com/internat...royals/604714/

    Kind of their job is to be royals, and they don't want to do their job anymore, but pay them anyway.

    Denmark seems to have the whole royalty thing worked out best (as with everything else), you can be a royal and have a job as a pilot.

    Yes, one might say America has the royalty thing worked out best , EXCEPT ... I'd rather have royals having scandals all the time than President weekly scandal. If the collective Id had to go somewhere I'd rather it not have actual power ... But they get all that and Boris, yes unfortunate there. Denmark has it right ...
    If you want something to get done, ask a busy person. If you want them to have a nervous breakdown that is.

    Perhaps you’re thinking of The Netherlands. The king (Wilhem something?) is a pilot for KLM.
