Prince Harry Shades The Royal Family Over Their Colonial History - Stresses That They Must ‘Right’ Their ‘Past Wrongs’ Amid The BLM Protests
It all started with a Session of the Queen’s Commonwealth Trust during which Harry stated that ‘When you look across the Commonwealth, there's no way we can move forward unless we acknowledge the past.’
Fans may know that Harry is the president of QCT and Meghan Markle is the vice-president and they joined the discussion about the BLM protests millions all over the world have been part of.
As mentioned before, Harry seemed to throw some shade at his family but also pretty much the whole of Great Britain during the chat.
After all, the colonialist history of the royals and the country is undeniable and a vital topic to discuss amid this fight for racial equality.
‘So many people have done an incredible job acknowledging the past and trying to right all those wrongs, but I think that we all acknowledge there's so much more to do still. It is not going to be easy, and in some cases, it is not going to be comfortable, but it needs to be done because – guess what Everyone benefits. We cannot deny or ignore the fact that all of us have been educated to see the world differently,’ he stated.
Harry went on to say that ‘However, once you start to realize that there's that bias there, you need to acknowledge it, to do the work to become aware … so you can help stand up for something that's so wrong and should not be acceptable in society today.’
Meghan added that It’s not just in the big moments, it’s in the quiet moments where racism and unconscious bias lies and thrives. It makes it confusing for many people to understand the role they play in that, both passively and actively. We are going to get there, and we have a lot of faith and energy in that having had this conversation.’
