    Prince Simp

    1,340 words Nothing humiliates the British royal family more than an American divorcee. King Edward VIII gave up his throne to marry the twice-divorced Wallis Simpson in 1936. Now Edward’s great-great nephew, Prince Harry, is resigning from the royal family to please his wife, Meghan Markle, a previously-divorced mulatto actress. Something must be amiss in […]

    Great column, BTW.

    Here are the best parts:

    Prince Harry’s decision exemplifies the stupidity women inspire in men and the sordid state of monarchies. We expect royals to be better than mere mortals. But in our current age, they’re just simps to modernity. (Simp, for the older readers, is slang for “Suckas Idolizing Mediocre Pussy.”)

    Harry and Meghan have enjoyed unprecedented media adoration since their engagement was announced in 2017. The press couldn’t get enough of the most eligible bachelor in the world settling for an older, mixed-race feminist (Markle was born in 1981, Harry in ’84.) Guardian columnist Afua Hirsch said the marriage would change Britain’s understanding of race forever and make it “impossible to argue that being black is somehow incompatible with being British.”

    The marriage fulfilled the wish expressed by the Lady Gavron in 2000 that Prince Charles should’ve married a black woman to symbolize Britain’s new multicultural society. It may not be Charles, but his second son is close enough. Markle’s royal resignation was defended as a reasonable reaction to Britain’s inherent racism.

    The media loved Markle because she indulged the narcissistic fantasies of affluent white female liberals (AWFLs). Here’s a feminist who doesn’t settle for less who nabbed a literal prince. As a royal, Markle dedicated herself to advocating for left-wing causes, such as MeToo and the gender pay gap. One of her chief causes was “decolonizing” the curriculum in British higher education and demanding the nation’s universities hire more non-whites and women. She even shouted “Oh my god!” when presented with the number of white male professors in the UK. As an 11-year-old, Markle fought against the terrors of sexist advertising. She carries on her mission as a royal, saying, “If things are wrong and there is a lack of justice and an inequality, someone needs to say something — and why can’t it be you?”

    Most royals focus on apolitical causes—Markle decided this restriction was beneath her.

    Like the stereotypical AWFL, she plans to raise her son in “a gender-neutral way.”
    Markle walked alone down the aisle because she didn’t want her father to attend the wedding. She also made sure that the vows were feminist-friendly.

    Since joining the royal family, Markle has tried her best to cause drama within the family. Her behavior caused a rift between Harry and his brother, Prince William. The beloved couple didn’t attend the royal family’s Christmas to avoid Harry’s relatives.

    AWFLs have loved this brown-skinned feminist shaking up things in Buckingham Palace. It’s just like their favorite romantic comedies, complete with a stuck-up family not ready to accept the new world. Prince William and Kate Middleton—paragons of what royals should aspire to—make for the perfect villains. They’re just too white and stale. Markle is a diva who won’t take shit from anybody—not even a Queen!
    And thankfully, she has her obedient man to follow behind her every step of the way. Behind every strong woman is a weak man serving her every need. Harry’s behavior is atrocious and shamefully beta. At a recent event, Harry approached Disney executive Bob Iger and pathetically begged the billionaire to give his wife a film role, any role, even a voice acting gig. This is a strapping young royal bending the knee before a Jewish media mogul. Twenty-first century power dynamics could not find a better representation.
    Markle’s new fantasy is milking her husband’s family brand for profit. The couple is seeking a global trademark for “Sussex Royal,” which will allow them to slap their royal affiliation on a host of cheap products. So noble, so virtuous, so empowering, so independent. Markle’s strong independent woman facade would be impossible without her husband’s name and simping.

    Prince Harry’s humiliation testifies to the destructive power of pussy. Men with the world before them will give it all away just for coochie. Harry could literally have any woman he wants; he chose Meghan Markle. Harry should’ve never dated her, and he should’ve never married her when he learned of how much her own family despises her. Otherwise smart, reasonable men will make the most braindead decisions when it comes to women. They’ll allow women to control them and ruin their lives. They’ll alienate friends, family, and dreams all on behalf of a conniving femoid. Game blogs are not without vices, but they at least offer men better advice than simping. Harry could’ve saved himself from disaster with just a few hours of reading Heartiste.
    Harry’s behavior calls into question the superiority of monarchy. Many within the Dissident Right long for royal rule. They admire the accomplishments of the Habsburgs and Stuarts. They say they’re better than the mob rule we suffer today. They will dismiss the personal flaws of modern monarchs as the fruits of heresy, usurpation or some other sin.

    The Windsors certainly have their flawed representatives. Harry’s uncle, Prince Andrew, is a scumbag who was best friends with Jeffrey Epstein and had sex with underage girls. Harry’s father, Prince Charles, may not have married a black woman, but he wants to embrace Britain’s multiculturalism by becoming the Defender of Faiths; Defender of the Faith is no longer good enough. Prince Charles’ uncle and mentor, Lord Mountbatten, was likely a pedophile. There is also the aforementioned King Edward VIII who abdicated his throne for coochie, altering world history for the most pathetic of reasons.
    Nasty woman!
    “Liberalism is the exoteric religion of the financial oligarchs, the high priests of Mammon who rule the West. Appealing to the vanity and self-regard of the profane, they manufacture consent by way of elections, propaganda and all manner of distractive spectacle. Manipulation of the popular consciousness, a black art honed to new levels of refinement over the last century, is now accomplished through electronic memes and quite literal programming in television, music and film. An inverted hierarchy will promote inverted values. Who among us today honors saints and warriors past as heroes worthy of our emulation? Under the usury bankster regime, we instead offer adoration to the savage and the harlot.” — Mark Hackard, from ‘Counterfeit Paradise'

    How is Harry "resigning" from the Royal Family. He'll keep his HRH, his title of Duke of Sussex, his place in the line of succession (please have a couple of more kids Kate!) his royal privilege and some sort of a financial payoff not to mention commercializing his royal status. If he really wanted to "resign" he would give up his titles and royal perks and just become plain Mr. Harry Windsor. But then that slutty mulatto would dump his worthless ass. It's obvious that Harry inherited his mother's mental instability.

    Worst case scenario; Canada's prime minister, Justin "Castro" Trudeau, pushes for the separation of the British & Canadian monarchies & makes Harry King of Canada.

    In what seems like a positive avalanche of virtue signalling following the ongoing Prince Andrew and Meghan Markle controversies, Prince Charles was quick to accept the title “Prince of Peace” – the headline of a recent article in The Sunday Times. Continuing his assertions, made while attending the Yad Vesham Holocaust Museum in Israel, he claimed: “Hatred and intolerance still lurk in the human heart” and that we “must be fearless in confronting falsehoods and resolute in resisting words and acts of violence”, while supporting his son, the Duke of Cambridge and his daughter-in-law, Kate (whose own family lineage includes the names Goldsmith, Temple and Myers), to participate in the Holocaust Remembrance service in Westminster.

    The service was also attended by Prime Minister Boris Johnson (unsurprisingly, given his own antecedents and the cordial relations he enjoys with the powerful Conservative Friends of Israel Lobby Group). Their cohorts in the equally pervasive Labour Friends of Israel lobby Group did everything in their power to smear Jeremy Corbyn as an anti-Semite in the recent run-off for Johnson’s job.



    Princess Kate, formerly Kate Middleton, was apparently quite emotional, while her husband, the future King, read to the packed hall. Her own much publicised portfolio of photographs of the grandchildren of Auschwitz survivors, either sitting or standing alongside their frail and elderly forebears, along with her insistence that reading The Diary of Anne Frank (despite the book’s highly questionable provenance) had greatly influenced her outlook on life, and will no doubt go some way to assuage the potential tsunami of bad publicity emanating from the editorial offices and newsrooms controlled by the same people, as Andrew’s close relationship with Ghislaine Maxwell and Jeffrey Epstein and her flame haired brother-in-law and her mixed-race sister-in-law’s pursuit of a plentiful supply of greenbacks, continue to haunt the conscience of The Firm, as the Royal Family refer to themselves.

    Speaking from Kensington Palace, the future Queen continued:

    “The stories of those who survived the Nazi genocide of the European Jews should never be forgotten and the harrowing atrocities of the Holocaust, which were caused by the most unthinkable evil, will forever lay heavy in our hearts. Yet it is often through the most unimaginable adversity that the most remarkable people flourish.”

    But one must ask oneself, will such self-abasement before the self-appointed moral arbiters of our time prove sufficient to sustain a brand that is so severely tainted by revelations regarding the way Prince Charles’s Duchy of Cornwall operation was turned into a vast and almost tax-exempt property empire that fleece’s homeowners on the Princes’s estates? How about the recalcitrant Sussex’s wedding and renovations to Frogmore Cottage that cost the British tax-payer over Ł34,000,000? Or Prince Andrew being accused of having “insulted” Epstein’s victims (according to Lisa Bloom who is representing several of the young women involved) and his “uncooperative” behaviour according to US attorney, Geoffrey Berman, in regard to the full-on FBI investigation? Or the fact that a former royal protection officer confirmed that Madam Ghislaine, widely believed to be Epstein’s procurer of young girls, visited Andrew up to four times a day and frequently took tea and had picnics with him in the grounds of Buckingham Palace?

    This is highly distasteful, not only on the basis that Maxwell’s woman’s father, Robert, defrauded thousands of his British employees by plundering their pension schemes, but he was also an Israeli spy. This is a symbiosis that some say he shares with the now mysteriously deceased Jeffrey Epstein, who commentators speculate was a Mossad asset blackmailing high ranking foreign dignitaries in a honey-pot sex trafficking operation that spanned the US, the Caribbean, France and the UK.

    Add this to the news that Harry and Meghan are enjoying a champagne lifestyle at the gated Mille Fleurs estate on Vancouver island in British Columbia; a property valued at over Ł18,000,000, and that their personal security will be covered by the British purse is somewhat denting Her Majesty’s credibility as “The Guardian of the Realm”. A nation that, under her sixty-six year reign, is languished in a state of perpetual decline, suffering such illustrative indignities as the retreat from our colonies that provided valuable raw materials and strategic military bases, the mass importation of former Commonwealth citizens that began with the Empire Windrush, continued with the Ugandan Asians and gained even more momentum under Tony Blair’s Labour government, was humbled by the dubious hedge-fund manipulator, George Soros, who bet against the British economy in the 1992 Exchange Rate Mechanism debacle;, failed to deal appropriately with ethnic riots in April 1981 and 2011, allowed race agitators like Dianne Abbott, David Lammy and Sadiq Khan into high public office, acquiesced in the development of the ‘victim culture’ and the imposition of a ‘politically correct’ authoritarianism that has facilitated the cover-up of the mass sexual abuse of white English girls by predominantly Pakistani Muslim men, and overseen the decay of family values and the advancement of LGBT and feminist extremists at the expense of our racial posterity.

    Not that our present elites care to lift a finger in our defense. For corrupted, and owned by aliens who see nations in terms of GDP, profit & loss balance sheets and economic performance, they march in their powdered wigs and ermine gowns through our hallowed halls, passing harsh judgments on the indigenous and exalting the foreign and exotic. Clinging to their tiaras even as they shrug contemptuously in the face of potential allies and mock our glorious dead by lining up side by side with wreath carrying representatives of countries that played an insignificant part in the catastrophe which was the First World War on that calamitous day at the Cenotaph to mark the event’s 100th anniversary.

    With BBC commentators dutifully extolling the virtues of everyone except the locally recruited volunteers in the Pals battalions who actually fought and died in their millions in the blood-drenched trenches, while Meghan, the new ebony Britannia, stared down upon the crowds, the all-powerful “Woman of Colour”, the WOKE Warrior, whose unspoken approval must be sought before any ceremony can take place or any statue can be erected anywhere across the land.

    “Liberalism is the exoteric religion of the financial oligarchs, the high priests of Mammon who rule the West. Appealing to the vanity and self-regard of the profane, they manufacture consent by way of elections, propaganda and all manner of distractive spectacle. Manipulation of the popular consciousness, a black art honed to new levels of refinement over the last century, is now accomplished through electronic memes and quite literal programming in television, music and film. An inverted hierarchy will promote inverted values. Who among us today honors saints and warriors past as heroes worthy of our emulation?

    Prince Harry Reportedly Sold His Hunting Rifles for Ł50,000 to “Please” Meghan Markle

    Per Jane Goodall, “Meghan doesn’t like hunting, so I suspect that is over for him.”



    Prince Harry recently sold his custom-made hunting rifles as a way to please “animal-loving” wife Meghan Markel, U.K. tabloids said Wednesday.

    “A fellow hunter bought the pair of prized Purdey firearms, thought to be worth at least Ł50,000, in a private deal,” The Sun reported.

    “Harry learnt to shoot as a child and once killed a one-ton buffalo,” the outlet said. “But Meghan is opposed to hunting and pals hinted the Duke of Sussex would give up to appease her.”

    The 35-year-old was absent from recent shoots at Balmoral and Sandringham, The Sun outlined. “He sold his two British-made guns five months ago — before he and Meghan, 38, quit the UK for a new life in North America.”

    “He bought them because he wanted them, not because they belonged to Harry, but he was quite chuffed when he found out,” a friend of the anonymous buyer said. “They are beautiful examples and he’s very pleased with them but he’s not the sort of person who wants to boast about the royal connection.”

    Conservationist Jane Goodall, 86, said last week that Harry would likely stop hunting to please Meghan.

    Goodall told Radio Times Harry and brother Prince William “were champions of the natural world.” “Except they hunt and shoot,” she added. “But I think Harry will stop because Meghan doesn’t like hunting.”

    Harry and Meghan announced they were leaving behind their royal duties to become financially independent in January. About a week after their bombshell announcement, Queen Elizabeth II financially cut off the couple and stripped them of their titles.

    “Harry, Meghan and Archie will always be much loved members of my family,” the Queen said in a statement, adding that she “support[s] their wish for a more independent life.”

    “I want to thank them for all their dedicated work across this country, the Commonwealth and beyond, and am particularly proud of how Meghan has so quickly become one of the family,” the statement continued.

    “It is my whole family’s hope that today’s agreement allows them to start building a happy and peaceful new life,” the Queen closed.

    As noted by U.K. outlet Express in January, Harry was forced to give up military titles when he chose the royal split. “Prince Harry, who made a career in the Armed Forces before he met Meghan Markle, will also lose some of his military titles,” the report outlined. “Prince Harry enjoyed 10 years in the Army, leaving in 2015.”

    Harry “was the Captain-General of Royal Marines, Honorary Air Commandant Royal Air Force Honington, and Commodore-in-Chief of Small Ships and Diving,” Express said. “As his grandmother is the head of the Armed forces in the UK, the Queen can strip Harry of his titles.”

    “The titles class as military appointments and royal appointments are part official duties, which Harry will no longer perform,” noted the report. “As such, he will no longer hold his titles, as revealed by Buckingham Palace in a statement.”

    The agreement mandates Harry “may no longer wear his uniform, as tradition bars military personnel from doing so, but he may wear his medals.”

    I'm personally sick of seeing these two in media posts.... they are almost unavoidable (them and Covid 19 ... sick of seeing the storie about them).

    What ever happened to Prince Andrew stories linked to underage sex with young teen girls (and that mossad agent Epsten?). Now that was newsworthy but it seems to have disappeared in favour of this promoted BS .... kind of seems a bit like a diversion/coverup to me

    Harry and Meghan Demand End to ‘Structural Racism’ in Britain

    Harry and Meghan demand end to 'structural racism' in Britain: Prince reveals his 'awakening' to racial issues and defends Diversity's BGT dance - while Meghan describes BLM protests in the US as 'a beautiful thing'

    Source: Daily Mail

    • Duke and Duchess have given a wide-ranging interview on racism to mark the start of Black History Month
    • Prince Harry spoke over Zoom about his 'awakening' to issues faced by black people after meeting Meghan
    • Couple have been repeatedly criticised for intervening in politics - including telling Americans how to vote


    The Duke and Duchess of Sussex today demanded an end to ‘structural racism’ in Britain.

    In a wide-ranging interview from their Ł11million California mansion, Prince Harry revealed his ‘awakening’ to the discrimination faced by black people after meeting his wife.

    Meanwhile, Meghan Markle praised Black Lives Matter protests in America after the death of George Floyd as ‘beautiful’ – but said this only applied to ‘peaceful protest’ and admitted many people found them ‘inflammatory’.

    Speaking on Zoom to the Evening Standard, Harry also weighed in on Diversity’s controversial BLM dance routine on Britain’s Got Talent and said he was ‘surprised’ by the negative comments it had received.

    In a separate article for the newspaper, the couple said: ‘As long as structural racism exists, there will be generations of young people of colour who do not start their lives with the same equality of opportunity as their white peers. And for as long as that continues, untapped potential will never get to be realised.’



    The interview is the latest in a long series of political comments by the couple, including last week when Harry intervened in the US election by urging voters to ‘reject hate speech’.

    The comments – which broke royal protocol – were widely interpreted as a call to vote out Donald Trump. They prompted Buckingham Palace to immediately distance themselves from Harry by noting he was ‘not working member of the Royal Family’.

    The couple’s interview comes at a key moment for race issues around the world after the killing of unarmed black man George Floyd by a US policeman sparked a wave of protest.

    During the unrest this summer there were scenes of violence, arson and looting, and a number of businesses were targeted.

    Asked for her views on the BLM protests, Meghan admitted they had been ‘inflammatory for a lot of people’.

    She continued: ‘But when there is just peaceful protest and when there is the intention of just wanting community and just wanting the recognition of equality, then that is a beautiful thing.

    ‘While it has been challenging for a lot of people certainly having to make this reckoning of historical significance that has got people to the place that they are, that is uncomfortable for people. We recognise that. It is uncomfortable for us.

    ‘And I think when everyone just starts to own that, we push through that and focus on how do we make it different moving forward? And if we just focus on the uplift and the positivity of that, while still acknowledging the past, that’s where we reshape things, and that shouldn’t be inflammatory at all. That should be really exciting actually.’

    Meghan said that BLM in the US was a ‘different movement’ from the one that existed in the UK.

    Harry, 36, who at one point was joined on camera by the couple’s Beagle, Guy, said he had become more aware of the issue of racism after marrying Meghan, 39.

    He said: ‘Because I wasn’t aware of so many of the issues and so many of the problems within the UK and also globally as well. I thought I did but I didn’t.’

    ‘You know, when you go in to a shop with your children and you only see white dolls, do you even think: ‘That’s weird, there is not a black doll there?’

    ‘And I use that as just one example of where we as white people don’t always have the awareness of what it must be like for someone else of a different coloured skin, of a black skin, to be in the same situation as we are where the world that we know has been created by white people for white people.’

    ‘It is not about pointing the finger, it is not about blame. I will be the first person to say, again, this is about learning.

    ‘And about how we can make it better. I think it is a really exciting time in British culture and British history, and in world culture. This is a real moment that we should be grasping and actually celebrating. Because no one else has managed to do this before us.’

    The Prince weighed in on the issue of the Diversity dance troupe’s BLM inspired dance on Britain’s Got Talent, which sparked 24,500 complaints to Ofcom.

    ‘We spoke to Ashley Banjo a few weeks ago, straight after the Britain’s Got Talent situation,’ Harry said.

    ‘And that in itself, I am sure even me talking about it will be controversial, but the reality of it is he and his team of guys put on the most amazing display.

    ‘We had such a good chat with Ashley. He was really strong, he felt great about it, but at the same time he was concerned because of the reaction. It was a real surprise that there was what? 1,100 complaints after the show and then three days of hype it became 20 or 25,000. I am very glad Ofcom made the decision that they did but that in itself kind of proves how much this conversation needs to continue.’

    Meanwhile, Harry spoke of how he had become more aware of issues of racial discrimination in society and questioned how far Britain had progressed.

    The prince said they although London was celebrated as one of world’s most diverse cities, ‘If you actually get out on to the streets and talk to people, it doesn’t feel as diverse as it actually is.

    ‘Therefore, now is the best time for us to be able to use our platform and you use your platform as well so we can actually start a conversation and introduce people to the black community that are making a massive difference within their own communities and across the UK as a whole as well.’

    The couple recently moved into a Ł11million mansion in Santa Barbara after breaking with the Royal Family and leaving the UK.

    Meghan said the couple were ‘doing well’ and enjoying life with their baby, Archie.

    She said: ‘We are very lucky with our little one. He is just so busy, he is all over the place.

    ‘He keeps us on our toes. We are just so lucky.

    ‘Everyone has been accustomed to what it means to be distanced. The impact of that, whether it is across the Pond or across town, you are still for the most part through a computer screen.

    ‘We have all had to adapt to how we can have the most impact as possible within the constraints of what has happening with Covid-19.

    ‘Like all of you, we are doing the best that we can and hoping that our passion and our commitment is still felt as it certainly hasn’t wavered.’

    Harry said he was coping with being away from Britain by using Zoom to stay in touch with people at home.

    ‘Everything has been through video, everything has been in a room, somewhere,’ he said. ‘Actually it doesn’t matter where in the world we have been, we have stayed in touch with and supported the organisations as much as humanly possible.’

    Harry said he and Meghan hoped to use their high public profile to continue discussing racial discrimination.

    He said: ‘Now is the best time for us to be able to use our platform, joint with your platform as well, so that we can actually start a conversation and introduce people to the black community that are making a massive difference within their own communities but across the UK as a whole as well.

    ‘So I think it’s a month of celebration, and of course with a lot of other things going on in the UK and America and around the world at the moment, there can be parallels of connections to that, but essentially for us this is very much a celebration of Black History Month.’

    To coincide with the interview the couple revealed their list of nominations for Black History Month’s Next Generation Trailblazers, who were selected for challenging prejudice and contributing to British society.

    Those nominated by the couple included Vogue editor Edward Enninful, Olympian boxer Nicola Adams, England rugby star Maro Itoje, the Met’s Assistant Commissioner Neil Basu and Doreen Lawrence, mother of the murdered teenager Stephen Lawrence.

    Discussing their nominations, Harry said: ‘These are people that we know. People that we’ve interacted with over the years, people that have been mentioned to us by other people.

    ‘Look, you know, this job has a certain uniqueness about it where we travel around the world, but we also visit all the communities, not all, but many communities within the UK, and the same names keep coming up.

    ‘And we’ve been really just impressed, humbled and inspired at the same time by these individuals, whether it’s Doreen Lawrence, or whether it’s, you know, Neil Basu – these are people that are really, that are genuinely making a difference.’

    Ending the interview, Meghan vowed that the couple would continue making their opinions known on issues that matter to them.

    She said: ‘You know, like all of you, we’re doing the best that we can and hoping that our passion and our commitment is still felt, because it certainly hasn’t wavered.’

    At one point in the interview, the couple’s Beagle, Guy, walked in on the interview, prompting Meghan to apologise.

    Today’s interview was the latest in a series of political interventions by the Sussexes that have sparked significant controversy.

    Last week, they were accused of ‘over-stepping the line’ after a thinly-veiled swipe at Donald Trump as they urged Americans to get out and vote in the upcoming election.

    In the couple’s most high-profile intervention in the US presidential election, Harry urged voters to ‘reject hate speech, misinformation and online negativity’ – all qualities critics associate with Mr Trump.

    In a TV appearance to mark Time magazine’s 100 most influential people roll call, Meghan – who has made no secret of her antipathy towards the president – described November’s vote as the most important election of her lifetime.

    Meanwhile, Harry complained that he had never been able to exercise his democratic right to vote because of the convention that, as a member of the British Royal Family, he should remain politically neutral.

    Royal insiders voiced concern in Britain where the Queen and her family are expected to remain politically neutral at all times, with one saying that Harry and Meghan had ‘crossed a line’.

    Buckingham Palace also distanced itself from Harry’s remarks by saying that ‘the Duke is not a working member of the royal family’ and describing his comments as ‘made in a personal capacity’.

    Harry and Meghan made their comments in a Time 100 video to go with the publication of this year’s list of the most influential people, which does not include the royal couple.

    ‘As we approach this November, it’s vital that we reject hate speech, misinformation and online negativity,’ said Harry.

    This was a line some observers in Britain and the U.S. immediately took many be a plug for Joe Biden and a slap at President Trump.

    ‘We’re six weeks out from the election, and today is Voter Registration Day,’ Meghan said.

    ‘Every four years, we’re told the same thing, ‘This is the most important election of our lifetime.

    ‘But this one is.

    Prince Harry decries the 'global crisis of hate' while Meghan Markle says 'bad voices' on social media are 'so loud and so damaging' - after claiming she's quit her accounts for her own self preservation

    • Duke and Duchess of Sussex hosted special edition of TIME100 Talks today about state of our digital world
    • Said they're enjoying quality time with their son and embracing every moment with him during pandemic
    • Meghan discussed trolling with Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian, who is Serena Williams' husband
    • Meghan and Prince Harry also suggested that fake news could be eradicated by push notifications




    Meghan Markle says the 'bad voices' on social media are 'so loud and damaging' - after claiming she quit her accounts for her own self preservation.

    This afternoon the Duke and Duchess of Sussex hosted a special edition of TIME100 Talks about the 'state of our digital experience', tuning in from their $14million Santa Barbara mansion.

    Dressed in an Alexander McQueen black suit, Meghan, 39, admitted that while she and Harry 'don't speak tech', they 'know the experience of being a human being and the pain and suffering and joy that has come from this worldwide web'.

    Meanwhile Harry said online platforms are 'distracting us from the things we should be focused on', adding: 'What is happening in the online world is affecting the world. This is a global crisis of hate, a global crisis of misinformation, and a global health crisis.'

    Harry concluded the talk by borrowing the Brexit Leave campaign's tagline, urging people to 'take back control' of their use of social media and mobile devices.

    Presented in partnership with P&G and themed around the topic of 'Engineering a Better World,' the special episode tied into Harry, 36, and Meghan's desire to build online communities that are more compassionate, safe, and trustworthy.

    The couple also said they're 'embracing every moment' of spending more time with their son Archie during the pandemic. Speaking to Time Editor-in-Chief Edward Felsenthal, Meghan said: 'We are trying to embrace all the quality time we get with our son and embrace every moment of his growth and development.'

    Asked how they are doing, Harry pointed out that before 2020, the question was one people 'threw around' - but he reported that they're 'good', adding: 'There's a lot of stuff to be focused on, a lot of work.

    'This is an opportunity to spend more time as a family than we probably would otherwise.'

    Meghan told how, since January - when they officially stepped down as senior members of the Royal Family - they have begun 'connecting the dots' between the many causes they're passionate about, including women's empowerment, mental health, the environment and online spaces.

    The TIME100 Talks episode featured conversations with a range of guests, including Reddit co-founder and founder of 776 Alexis Ohanian, and Rappler CEO and executive editor Maria Ressa.

    During Meghan's conversation with Alexis, her close friend tennis star Serena Williams' husband, who spent 15 years building the Reddit platform, the duo discussing trolling and the responsibility of social media platforms to address the issue.

    Alexis admitted that investing in tools to reduce 'toxicity' is something the industry 'put off' for a long time.
