How dare she make a fuss,
Rock the boat
When she must bathe in bubbles of
The very best champagne?
Try being just like one of us,
The ones with problems that are ‘real’.
But what is real when families
Are called upon and fail?
Everyone can feel that pain,
The sort that money cannot soothe.
So, I could write for about six weeks on the theme of that interview and I haven’t even seen it yet. From what we have seen here in the UK, there is so much that we can have an opinion on, whether we should be airing those opinions or not.
I love all royals and I love Harry and Meghan so I’m not on a side. I hope that all of them find happiness so it makes me really sad to see people dig in. I might write about the Kate vs Meghan issue later, but I want to touch on people’s negative attitudes towards Meghan and the pain that she has felt.
She brought up a lot about mental health and most people were very sympathetic to her in the Twitterverse. But I did notice that there was a little bit of backlash because she has money, and I’d seen it months ago when they did the documentary before they left the royal family.
It seems that for some people, if you have money, you are not allowed to feel pain. Money should get rid of all that, apparently.
I saw one person write something along the lines of ‘try being a single mum in Birmingham, and then tell me about having a hard time’. I thought that was such a horrible thing to say. This woman has been dragged through the mud VERY publicly and she has lost family and friends as it has played out.
If we work on the theory that money solves all problems, we can safely say that here in the UK nobody has the right to experience any mental health issues because we are a lot richer than people in developing countries. We all know that’s a load of twaddle, so why would people even suggest that’s the case?
I just hope that the family can find peace somewhere in this mess that they have become tangled up in. Their pain is just as real as the pain us ‘commoners’ experience. It’s unfortunately a part of being a human being.

The fact is, we’re none of us immune from pain and sorrow and even tragedy. That includes those of us who have wealth. Pain is pain, no matter what one’s income. To me, that’s one reason that kindness is so important. We all suffer at some point, so we can all understand what that’s like and act with compassion.
I love your heart, Rachel. Showing criticism and acting out of jealousy is much easier than showing empathy for some. Many can come through tough times, whether rich or poor, and have compassion for all of humanity. Unfortunately, there’s always the haters. Thank you for sharing.
