I believe Meghan and Harry. My question is why do so many people in Britain still admire the royal family so much? – Hayley Matthews

So I've not watched the entire interview, you know the one, right? "The interview", the only thing everyone is talking about, the interview that got hothead Piers Morgan in such a tizz that he stormed off the Good Morning Britain set in a childish huff.

For a grown man to behave that way, stomping off to go and sulk in the corner with his dummy, to later quit (or be sacked), then surely this interview must have been big!

I've picked up on some parts that have been discussed in the media the last few days and, to be honest, I think if I do watch it I'll just get angry at the monarchy, and I'll probably get even more annoyed with Piers Morgan's diabolical and incredibly childish comments and behaviour.

I believe Meghan when she says she's put up with racist remarks about the colour of her son Archie’s skin before he was born. I believe that she's had to put up with some very dated and archaic views from the royals and I believe her when she said she cried due to the way she was treated.

And I believe we need to really question the truth about the royal family who so many adore – feels to me that there's a lot going on behind the palace doors.

What really gets me is how, in this day and age, we still have such admiration for the royal family, who have been given a position of unimaginable wealth, power and status, above all others, purely because of their ancestry.

All this admiration is based purely on their genetics whilst many of us (and many millions of people in the world) live in poverty. And I suppose what gets me even more is that many of us continue to celebrate the royals and for why? Because of their family history etc?

To me, it seems daft. I don't get it – sorry. The Queen should be sharing out some of that wealth and land and helping those people who adore her so much who are struggling to make ends meet – more so now than ever before!

It feels dated and useless to admire a family who have been under so much scrutiny recently. With Prince Andrew hiding away in a ball after his car-crash interview and no sight of any support from the royals in the pandemic, for me, it's plain to see the royals are sensing that many of the general public are not impressed with their recent behaviour.

So I'm not surprised at what Meghan and Harry have said about being cut off financially, feeling unwelcome and putting up with racist comments. What I'm surprised at is the amount of people who can't see how out of touch with reality the royals are.

They've no idea what life is like for the majority of people living a life on the breadline, working service jobs and constantly firefighting the laws and rules imposed in society.

The jelly bean has it very good and it's about time she came crashing down to Earth with a little realisation if she wants to claw back any public respect after the latest revelations in Harry and Meghan’s interview.

Oh, but their claims are to be “addressed”. Mind you, we'll never know what the outcome is because it’s all to be done privately. One rule for them and one rule for us – sigh! Think I'll go back to worshipping JoJo Siwa!
