The People’s Prince. . .or Jester? Why the Royal Couple’s Moves Are Anything But

I commend Harry for doing what he felt he needed to do to protect his wife. Protection is a man’s main responsibility to his family. I also recognize that Meghan understands the influence she has with her husband. As she should. But this ain’t it.

This is why the type of woman a man chooses is important. Harry has a weakness. He lost his mother at a young age and never got over it. Especially since what he knows is vague memory and secondhand info. I can’t pretend to know what it’s like. But…. Meghan knows these things about Harry.

Now because Harry is a man, he is taking full responsibility for his decisions and continuing to protect his wife. As he should. That’s honorable. But…..

This. Will. Not. End. Well.

You can’t pull a man away from his mission, his sense of purpose, his family and legacy, all the things that ground him and think everything’s going to be kosher. It won’t be.

Meghan signed up for this. It’s what she wanted. This woman is almost 40 years old. She’s worked for years in Hollywood trying to gain stardom to finally land a role as somewhat of a B-List actress on a show no one talks about, despite growing up in Hollywood.

Maybe all the attention came as a shock, since no one was checking for her before. But that’s what happens to A-List celebrities all the time. It comes with the job. So going from B-List actress to royalty, what did she think was coming? NO ONE gets only good press. It’s the nature of the beast.

This is not a Black or white thing. Princess Diana was WHITE, and the crazy paparazzi was implicit in her death. This is a white-hot blind spot for Harry, and in my opinion, the only reason moving away from the very systems that can protect him and his family seems rational to him.

Now let’s take a look at this. They stayed in Canada for a little while after leaving England. Now they are living in L.A. L.A.? L.A.

This.
Ain’t.
About.
Privacy.

They will have about as much privacy in L.A. as two monkeys humping at a zoo. It is what it is.

ESPECIALLY if they plan to do a reality show. Are you kidding me?

American media can give a flying you-know-what about who Harry is……or was, since essentially, he’s removed them both from that and it they have been stripped of their royal titles.

They left Royalty to come to America and pimp their privacy out for TV, social media, and the very media attention Meghan claims she doesn’t want. Make it make sense, fam.

Where does Harry even fit into all of this? Hollywood and tv is not his thing. That’s Meghan’s world.

In addition to all of this, Meghan’s “world” is in a state that allegedly has some of the worst numbers for cases of coronavirus. How is this a wise decision? I’ll wait….

Meghan is very selfish and self-destructive. She wouldn’t understand the impact being separated from his family has on Harry because she’s estranged from her own family. She gained a family and a place by marrying Harry, and I don’t think she sees or appreciates that. How could she? Dysfunction breeds dysfunction. Now she’s also denying her child that family structure and security from damn-near birth. SMH.

To add to all of this, no way you can be such a strong and outspoken “activist,” but can’t stomach unfavorable media attention. I don’t buy it.

Harry lacks foresight, fortitude, and keen judgment. He needs the close counsel and guidance of elders, because he is about to become the main clown in the sideshow that is part of the larger circus of Hollywood.

I’m aware that Meghan Markle is a sacred cow for many of you, and I’m telling you. . .

This whole situation is a hot mess unfolding.

There will be a Part II to this, quite possibly on my upcoming podcast. So stay tuned for that and follow me on Facebook at A Pen for Loren’s Thoughts.

The Part of Jordyn’s Story No One’s Talking About

Let me preface this post by saying that I loathe celebrity gossip and couldn’t care less about these people’s drama. But this is not a gossip post. I want to address something specific about the Jordyn Woods/Tristan Thompson situation. I haven’t kept tabs on all of the headlines concerning this faux earth-shattering news.

What I know about this situation is that Jordyn Woods, who is Kylie Jenner’s best friend, was reportedly seen making out with Tristan Thompson, Khloe Kardashian’s baby daddy, who may or may not be also be Khloe’s man at this point. Take note of the wording here, because we will come back to this later.


According to Woods, she ended up at a kickback at Thompson’s home as is customary in L.A. nightlife culture.

However, I did watch Friday’s episode of Red Table Talk in which Jada Pinkett-Smith gave Jordyn Wood an opportunity to speak her piece on what really happened between her and Tristan Thompson. According to Woods, she ended up at kickback at Thompson’s home as is customary in L.A. nightlife culture. Woods also accepted responsibility for being at Thompson’s house in the first place, although she says she wasn’t aware at first of whose whom she and her friends were headed to. Having been young once and an occasional party-goer, I can definitely see this happening. You’re with a group of people you know and you’re going with the flow. Nothing unusual about that.

Jordyn says nothing happened between her and Tristan until. . . .the next morning as she was leaving the house, he kissed her on the lips. Jordyn says she tried to forget it and pretend it hadn’t happened. What I want to know why no one is offering this young lady support in the aftermath of being violated. Because that is exactly what happened. Even the folks who are on her side are only concerned with clearing her of sleeping with Khloe Kardashian’s half-in/half-out boyfriend. We are completely glossing over the fact that this man put his lips to hers totally without her consent. He didn’t ask for, nor did he receive consent to touch her sexually in any way. In a situation such as this, what do you do? Jordyn Woods did what most women would have done. She got in the car and went home as originally intended. Little did she know that someone would maliciously scandalize what was a violation of her person.

This happens more often than women talk about or even care to talk about. I have personally experienced this twice in the past three years. On two separate occasions with two different men, I’ve been caught off guard with a kiss on the cheek that I did not want, nor was I asked if it were ok to do so. One guy waited until I was turning away. The other grabbed me tightly in a bear hug that I couldn’t get out of while he planted a kiss on my cheek. Needless to say, I never talked to or saw either of those men again. There is not very much you can do when the deed is already done, but to be blamed, ridiculed, and threatened for it certainly adds insult to injury. It’s disgusting.

Now let’s go back to my earlier comment about Jordyn reportedly being seen making out with Tristan. Wording and framing are very important, and this is how the media has been framing the story, rather than saying Tristan was seen making out with Jordyn. The wording matters. Tristan Thompson, a known and confirmed cheater being protected, whether because he is a man or because he is Khloe Kardashian’s man or both. Either way, that is also disgusting. I did a little research (because again, I don’t keep up with celebrity gossip) and found out that Khloe herself started dating Tristan while he was still with his very pregnant girlfriend at the time. Reportedly, Khloe had said she was “just having fun with him” at the time and had been told he had a pregnant girlfriend. So did she expect him to be Man of the Year? Did anyone expect him to be Man of the Year? Supposedly, Tristan has “privately” admitted to something. It’s not clear exactly what. Of course, the word of a habitual liar and cheater holds major weight, right? Tuh!
