Mercy Muroki: I simply cannot summon damns to give about Harry and Meghan

They say they want some privacy and space, but I’m starting to feel like its us who need a bit of privacy and space from them

I don’t know about you, but I’m bored at Meghan and Harry putting their two cents into just about everything.

Quite frankly, I’m wholeheartedly, unreservedly uninterested in what they have to say about anything.

I simply cannot summon damns to give.

But I’m forced to listen to their opinions, because they are literally inescapable.

Meghan and Harry say THEY want some privacy and space, but I’m starting to feel like its us who need a bit of privacy and space from THEM.

You turn on your TV, and there they are, doing their interviews in front of millions of people, so you flip to Netflix, and they are again with their multi-year, multi million dollar deal. So, you switch that off – and think, well I’ll just relax with a nice podcast instead – and there they are again, being their weird and woke selves. So you think, well I’ll just have to switch off completely and read a book – they can’t get me there, too, surely! But alas, you step into Waterstones, reach for a book from the shelf, there they are again, with their kids book. And of course, their impending tell-all memoirs.

And now it’s been reported that Harry and Meghan have accused the Queen of failing to take “full ownership” of the allegations they made about members of the royal family being racist towards her; that accountability had not been taken.

Accountability for what, exactly?

The Sussexes accused members of the royal family of being concerned about how dark their baby was going to be, but have refused point blank to name the culprit.

Now, obviously, none of us are privy to the conversations that took place behind public doors. But that’s exactly the problem – it’s their word against everyone else’s. And we’re just expected to blindly swallow their narrative, whilst they give us no evidence about who was racist, or what was even really said.

Do I think some members of the royal family have racist views? Of course I do. No institution is immune from racism, or indeed any other form of hate.

But I, like many others, do not believe our Royal family is a racist family.

If the Sussexes want to prove us wrong, then they need to give us the evidence or go away.
