Okay, what is it with people that they think because I have an English Accent that I am therefore an Authority on the Royal Family? I kid you not, I have been asked at least a dozen times in the past couple of weeks either “When is Meghan due?” or “Did Meghan have the baby yet?”, and the first time I was asked I sat there for at least 30 seconds wracking my brain for a pregnant friend called Meghan before responding with, “Meghan who?”. The response, shortly thereafter of, “Meghan and Harry”, still took me another 30 seconds of brain searching before we got a prolonged “Oh!” from me as the realization hit.
Seriously, folk, come on. I’ve lived in the US for nearly 20 years now (we should have a party to celebrate that this Christmas!) and whilst I do genuinely love our Royal Family, I’m not all that interested. Sorry! But it’s true! I mean, I’m happy for them all and am so glad that they finally appear to have their shit together and are now much more mentally healthy than they were in prior generations, and that’s wonderful for them and the British People, but I don’t care! I’m more worried about if my kid is going to get in trouble for google searching ‘Testicles’ at school again or if I can afford for my eldest to go to University and why the hell they killed off Ripley in Station 19 than when Meghan is due!
This said, Prince Harry was incredibly endearing when he talked about his wife and the birth of their son, and so I will share that here. Enjoy!
