Now that all the Royal Wedding fanfare is coming to a close I wonder if the Duchess of Sussex fully understands what she really got herself into? Sure the press will love her, especially if her blood relatives continue to provide headline grabbers, BUT they are fickle and can turn on her like a dime. She ain’t in Kansas anymore. Sure she is used to the press, but not the British Press, they are unrelenting.
She will only ever find herself going down the rung, especially if Kate decides to have a few more children. She will have to curtsey for the rest of her life to everyone above the rungs. That will include the Queen, Kate, Beatrice and Eugenie. This is where her acting skills will come in handy.
Any thoughts on having a political voice will be quickly quashed. The Royal Family pride themselves on being neutral. Silence is the best policy. The Royal Family might be England’s best tourist attraction but it is largely taxpayer-funded so scrutiny is dodged at all costs. So all her rah-rah about “social justice” and “charity work” will be downplayed.
If she thinks Prince William will speed up change…think again. Prince William has been carefully groomed for the role of King, he will not jeopardize this responsibility. Given that Charles has been waiting his whole life to be King, he won’t be stepping down from that role anytime soon when he is crowned. Charles is a stickler for tradition. So any thoughts that the young heirs will change the medieval/sexists traditions is purely a Royal spin. They have only ever been used by the Firm to shine a golden glow over the out of touch monarchs. It could be a good 20 years before Prince William takes the reign, and by then he will be middle-aged.
As for her freedom…bye-bye to that, she is now owned by the firm, no selfies, no autographs, no revealing dresses, no outings to the 7-Eleven without security and absolutely no stepping into the spotlight without permission. Reality is a bitch.
