The thing is though...our Royal Family do still operate as a 19th / 20th century entity though. Their naivety is remarkable. How long has this thread been running now and how many predictions people have made on here have come to fruition?
The RF are not 'streetwise' with the 21st century and..their advisors - the men in grey suits are still in a 1950's mindset. I think their whole risk assessment model needs a severe overhaul.
Meghan is playing by 21st century rules and the RF are a century behind with their defence gambits.
I honestly think there's a risk the RF could end up being the underdog in all this, if they not already are.
Their attempts at being modern often turn out to be the equivilent of a drunken uncle dancing at a wedding with his thumbs in the air giving it: "Look at me-I've still got it in me!".
In fairness your wondering why a family who have a man to put toothpaste on their brushes aren't streetwise.
Most of the advisors as you say have been to private school and straight to the civil service and then to them.
