The accusation of racism against Queen Elizabeth has been dismantled

The principe Harry it is less and less credible. Indeed, biographer Robert Lacey tells us, the young duke would be so obsessed with paparazzi that he even sees them where they are not there. The idea that Harry needs someone to help him illuminate his dark sides is taking shape more and more concrete and, perhaps, the famous writer and guru Brené Brown could be for him, although it seems that the prince is following a bit. his teachings are too literal. Meanwhile, the storm of racism is raging at Buckingham Palace, but it is worth trying to tackle this complicated issue from another point of view that could reserve some surprises for us.

Harry’s obsession with paparazzi

We know, Prince Harry has never loved photographers, considering them the persecutors of his mother. This ferocious anger, however, could hide an obsession, at least according to what biographer Robert Lacey tells us in his book “Battle of Brothers”. According to the expert, in fact, Harry’s ex, Cressida Bonas, he reported to some friends: [Harry] he was obsessed with paparazzi. He railed against photographers… even when it was evident that there were none ”. This is a problem. If the revelations were true, they would throw light on a dark side, let’s call it that, of the Duke of Sussex, underlining the latter’s need for a therapy that digs deep inside him, until all his shadows are tracked down and defeated.

Queens also have vices

The Queen Elizabeth he has a small and harmless one: chocolate, preferably the “protagonist” of the Chocolate Perfection Pie, his favorite cake. The former court chef Darren McGrady told it, also revealing that Her Majesty does not like salty snacks very much, but would love the potted shrimps of Morecambe Bay (a Lancashire town), rigorously cooked according to an ancient recipe that dates back to the Tudor dynasty. The chef also told an anecdote about the proverbial tea with pastries at five o’clock that the sovereign does not give up, even when she is on the other side of the world: “During the royal tour of Australia one day we were on the Royal Yacht. It was five in the morning, but for the Queen it was five in the afternoon and so my job was to churn out scones for her ”. Not even the time zone can change Elisabetta’s habits

Harry and Meghan’s spiritual guide

Do you know that the Sussexes would have a guru, a spiritual guide to help them overcome their traumas? And she is also a very famous writer internationally: Brené Brown. Perhaps his name is not completely unknown to you. Many of the author’s books are, in fact, also available in Italian. The theory on which they are based is very simple. Shamelessly expose our frailties in a world that would like us to be indestructible. Just think that Brown’s TED on this issue has reached the peak of 53 million views. It seems that Harry and Meghan are following this teaching to the letter. However, humbly, we also reflect on the fact that showing the world your weak points does not mean throwing arrows at your family, accusing it of being the cause of this fragility.

Do you want to work for the royal family? Pay attention to English

A former employee of the royal family, James Upsher, has given some advice for those who dream of working at Buckingham Palace. His suggestions are all focused on knowledge of English, which is essential for hoping to join the royal staff. It goes without saying that the level of mastery of His Majesty’s language must be very high, however, during the interview, the accent is also very important. Pronunciation, in England, places people in a specific social class, even before distinguishing them by geographical origin. It would be appropriate to learn the accent used by the Queen, the court and a percentage of the population that oscillates between a tiny 3 and a measly 5% of the population, or the Received Pronunciation formed in the eighteenth century. This is the most prestigious pronunciation and it even seems to give a certain credibility to the speaker. When form is (almost) everything.

What is this history of racism in the royal family?

The question of alleged discrimination at Buckingham Palace, brought to light by a Guardian investigation, is not easy to interpret. Especially in a period like ours, in which the politically correct. Apparently laws dating back to the 1960s prohibit immigrants and people of color from taking up clerical roles in the English court. Furthermore, people who have not resided in the UK for at least 5 years would be excluded from the most prestigious posts. The Palazzo categorically denies this reconstruction and makes it known: “Allegations based on second-hand accounts of conversations spanning over 50 years should not be used to draw or infer conclusions about current facts or actions.” True. The laws of half a century ago, which should now be outdated, are not enough to accuse the royal family of racism. It would be necessary to understand if, how and for how long these rules would have been applied, also why His Majesty is required to comply with the Equality Act, which guarantees the rights of minorities. Nor is it credible that at Buckingham Palace (and not only there), especially in positions of responsibility, anyone can work. We avoid exploitation. Basic requirements such as residency, language knowledge and work experience matter, not skin color.
