You know sometimes I think that television networks assume that all viewers are ignorant, that they cannot “read between the lines” when watching a movie that is based in truth. There was a load of hype before the movie actually aired, leading viewers to believe that it could rival Everafter (minus the beautiful Drew Barrymore of course). Some nestled in with their popcorn, all cuddled up and overtaken by anticipation, yes, yes, that may be quite an exaggeration but some people were indeed curious for the most part about how on earth Prince Harry could possibly have become interested in Meghan Markle, even in passing.
What I quickly gathered as the movie rolled on, and on, and on (oops I almost fell asleep thinking about it) was that on Harry and Meghan’s 2nd date, after he swept her away to Africa, she felt that she knew him well enough to hop right into bed with him. The movie showed them speaking on the phone shortly after they met and she had been reading all about the Prince. The scene where Meghan rushed to the airport to stop his flight was ridiculous, even by Hollywood standards, stalkerish, desperate and psychotic especially after she had just went up one side of him and down the other for having the audacity to have tried to protect her from reporters and what he called trolls! Since the pair dated and married in under two years, it was interesting to have the movie try to make viewers believe that Meghan was all about being independent and standing on her own two feet, appearing to want to continue working and making her own way, suddenly turning on a dime she wanted the whole “experience” and quite her job. Finally, the single most disgusting, disappointing part of the entire Royal B.S. er, Romance movie was that as too often happens in society, the emphasis on race and trolls did in what shred, and I do mean shred of interest a viewer may have had.
What I learned from watching Harry & Meghan A Royal Romance is that Meghan studied Prince Harry, played the role of her lifetime and reached her goal. That Meghan is bi-racial but seems able to only relate to the African American in her whenever there is a cause or chance to garner attention from it. Crystal clear from the start of the movie, as if we didn’t know this already, is that like a crazed reality star Markle is over the top desperate for attention and perhaps for Harry that was the bigger selling point, she seems to crave media attention when it shows her in a light that she desires to be shown in but heaven forbid the media states an ugly truth. If you haven’t guessed already, the movie stinks terribly, and while Murray Fraser the actor playing Prince Harry is his lookalike, the actress portraying Meghan Markle, Parisa Fitz-Henley is a beautiful woman but that’s just the problem with casting her in the role of Markle, she doesn’t even resemble Markle.
