“I have in sincerity pledged myself to your service, as so many of you are pledged to mine. Throughout all my life and with all my heart I shall strive to be worthy of your trust”.
– Queen Elizabeth II
If there is such concern about the response of the public to members of the BRF …. then quietly remove them from the public eye for a bit. For being so “concerned”…they have absolutely no issue stepping out into that spotlight. Don’t constantly send them to organizations that are good causes so that they can have a photo op while they draw on bananas and preach about empowerment. If you don’t like the reaction received from the people that you “serve”, then give the public that you’re concerned about a break. You won’t change opinion. People are not stupid and censorship will make things worse. You cannot take away the right to speak freely.
I don’t want to see a woman in an ill-fitting expensive outfit, where it is obvious that she’s more concerned about showing the clothes and catching a pic. I can watch the Kardashian’s if I want to see this. I don’t want to be told about yoga and the benefits of drinking less and eating better. I don’t want to hear about meditation and avocados and vegan paint. I am a middle class woman with a family in the US (who reports ALL of my income and pays my taxes) and I don’t want this ridiculous Hollywood fluff thrown at me.
I love the constitutional monarchy and their role in Great Britain. They aren’t celebrities. They are a family who is there to serve. To do good things and to highlight exceptional causes … not to highlight themselves and their lifestyle.
I can only imagine what those who struggle in the UK feel. I am not a supporter of the President, but my opinion is that this is why Trump won the White House in the US. Washington turned too “Celebrity-ish” and the average American didn’t care about being told that they should live a certain way, do certain things, act in a specific manner, etc. People felt like they were being told to support certain social movements and causes that didn’t affect them while what did affect their daily lives wasn’t being addressed (jobs, taxes, economy, etc).
This DM article is ridiculous. The response to members of the BRF is small compared to criticisms that other public figures receive through social media and other outlets. Again, Trump is an example where many will criticize his actions, his attitude and his appearance. While these comments may be petty or unkind… it is a right that is given to people speak their thoughts and feelings.
I like to read this blog and another blog titled Harry Markle. I like this blog because even if you don’t agree with the post, you share and provide an intelligent, respectful response. This blog doesn’t contain “vitriol” comments and in fact you commonly ask people to not comment with malicious cruelty towards MM. You encourage people to speak using intellegent arguments and encourage finding receipts and evidence. You have also genuinely supported the BRF, their purpose and the good that they do. This is why I also read Harry Markle who I believe provides educated points of view without making nasty personal comments towards MM.
I’ve tried. I have tried to continue to defend Harry but he is quickly becoming a “Candle in the Wind”. I don’t care what he’s like behind closed doors. He had SUCH potential. With his position in the family, he truly could have done such remarkable things in the world, as his mother did. He doesn’t have the responsibilities that William has, so he would have the freedom to be like his mother. With his charm, smile and infectious sense of humor, he could have reached and impacted many. My view of him has been impacted so much in the past 6 months that it truly breaks my heart.
Thank you for your blog and updates.
God bless you, anon! Thank you, JD 🌸😎
