Duchess of woke

Earlier on the BBC wheeled in Bonnie Greer to opine on Meghan Markle’s stint as guest editor of Vogue Mag

The Duchess of Sussex decided not to put herself on the cover as it would be a “boastful thing to do”.  (Hmm...s’what Kate did though, eh?)
"As you will see from her selections throughout this magazine, she is also willing to wade into more complex and nuanced areas, whether they concern female empowerment, mental health, race or privilege.” 
“The issue includes a conversation between Meghan and former US First Lady Michelle Obama.”

"Women who break barriers." Massive cringe. 

Coming soon: Meghan in a hijab (?)

Should the Royals be so woke?

"The list, however, is beyond parody as reflecting the shallow aspirations of a social justice warrior. The only achievement of several of them is being famous, being the right non-white skin colour or, like the duchess, aspiring to making the world a kinder and gentler place." 
Melanie Phillips (£) is spot on here - a subscription to the Times is sometimes worth it for the comments alone, but if you don’t subscribe, why not go and buy a copy?


  1. When she first appeared on the scene I think the public were happy to give her and her relationship with Harry a fair wind, especially as there was sympathy for her, having to deal with her God-awful family.

    But now? She has become a Royal PC Pain in the Arse.

  2. RE only having two children - surely the most environmentally friendly thing you can do is commit suicide and not have kids.....thereby reducing the population. Just a thought.
