Megan Markle is not a typical Royal. There is much to analyze in Harry’s decision to marry her. At the time of marrying, what did he want? Did he want someone atypical but still able to assimilate into a manicured picture of royal bliss? Or did he want someone gifted with the necessary tenacity not to assimilate?
If Prince Harry’s intentions are plotted on a 4×4 matrix as follows, the conundrum become apparent:
(TABLE 1: See proper table at the website.)
Herein lies the conundrum: if Harry was hoping Meghan would assimilate into royal perfection, he has been disappointed by the current situation. Recognition of this fact would open up his family to criticism, but because there are always two sides to a story, also his wife and himself for the failure to assimilate.
By contrast, if we assume that Prince Harry wanted Meghan to keep challenging tradition, then he is doing so at the expense of the Royal Family who are daily having their manicured veneer of perfection stripped away. In essence, if this is what Prince Harry wanted, Meghan Markle is arguably the ghost of Diana past, taking vengeance on the Royal Family that destroyed her. Such a narrative though, where Meghan Markle is Prince Harry’s subconscious wrecking ball, is too juicy, too tantalizing, a narrative to overlook. The media and armchair psychologists like myself can’t help but contemplate it. Why would Harry feed the beast that took his mother’s life? Someone who has lived his life in the spotlight would surely have known that the media would revel in every controversy brought on.
What do you believe?
“A real pleasure! Very interesting person too. I'm looking forward to connecting with on the other side of this competition -- see if we can't find new ways to work together. ”
