The Americans are not alone in the world of the bizarre. True, we have Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez (AO-C), and one might conclude that, from a political perspective, we’ve reached the outer limits of the Twilight Zone. But joining us there is our British cousins, led by Meghan, Duchess of Sussex. Well, she’s not actual royalty … only married to someone who is. Meghan is (ugh) one of us —and someone who looks disturbingly similar to AO-C.
Rachel Meghan Markle, aged 37-years, is a “retired American actress” who became a member of the British royal family upon her marriage to Prince Harry. Until recently, Harry was one of my favorite characters in London. I have no idea what he was thinking when he popped the question and now, he’ll spend the rest of his life waking up next to an AO-C look-a-like. It will be hell on earth.
I won’t suggest that Meghan is a flake—only that she’s about two bubbles off plumb. Markle-Mountbatten-Winsor recently demonstrated this when she dispatched personal messages to sex workers by writing notes on bananas. It gives a whole new meaning to the term “mentioned in dispatches.” She inscribed nothing deep, you understand —only motivating: such messages as “You are special,” adding little hearts on either side. Well, she’s right about that. Sex workers are special.
Duchess Meghan was inspired, she said, as a by-product of Michelle Obama’s school lunch program where an unidentified woman wrote empowering words to children … as if getting a free meal wasn’t enough.
I honestly don’t know what more I can say about this … other than sending bananas (as opposed to oranges) along to sex workers has an odd ring to it. I do not have personal knowledge of all Meghan’s messages, of course … but could concoct a few of my own —and I’m sure our readers could as well. I was thinking, for example, [heart] Never negotiate [heart], or perhaps [heart] John Smyth-Jones, QC, 0800-740-2220 [heart].
Well, at least we Americans aren’t standing alone anymore.
