Palace issues an apology
and promises restitution
International current affairs correspondent Mimi Emmanuel reports.
This morning at 9.30 am London time, Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth ll released a new statement from Buckingham Palace.
We, Queen Elizabeth ll, sincerely apologise for the hurt and mistreatment experienced by my grandson Harry, his wife Meghan and my great-grandchild Archie.
I was horrified to hear about their distressing experiences which they endured at the hands of media, palace staff and family members.
A thorough investigation will be launched into all the false accusations which have been made against them and the lack of respect and care endured by Meghan as Harry’s girlfriend and his wife.
We, the Queen, will make restitution fourfold.
We will deal with these matters privately but the public needs to know that as a grandmother I have been blindsided by courtiers, family and media.
I thought that Meghan and Harry were enjoying holidays in Australia and California and now I’ve discovered that they fled for their lives.
Heads will roll… guaranteed.
I’m looking for new courtiers. Anyone at all is welcome to apply because clearly what’s been happening so far hasn’t been working. It’s time for the monarchy to turn a new leaf.
Meghan’s Mum, Doria has been employed as a consultant to help us choose appropriate people to deal with racial issues. Meghan will be consulted on how we can prevent bringing on suicidal thoughts in new family members.
Harry’s income will be restored to him fourfold. And Archie was made a prince this morning retrospectively, with all the protection that comes with it.
I am deeply sorry this happened to two fine young people like Harry and Meghan. This should never have happened on my watch.
I will make sure that the legacy I leave will be of a monarchy of inclusion, love and fairness.
I am grateful to Harry and Meghan for speaking up. If it was not for them I would have been left in the dark about this. I recognise the courage that must have taken to do so.
My promise to them is that I will turn this around. I thank them from the bottom of my heart for their honesty and integrity.
I ask the media and the world to treat each other with love, kindness and compassion and to particularly do so towards my favourite grandson Harry and his wife Meghan. They have suffered unnecessarily for way too long.
Now I know what I know… this will never happen again in the British monarchy.
Today is the first day of our new credo: Fairness, Compassion and Love to All.
Queen Elizabeth ll
Copy to Harry, Meghan and Archie
If only… wouldn’t it be nice?
You can read this as an early April’s fool or you can read it as what should have happened, and so far hasn’t.
Dear Harry and Meghan,
This should never have happened to you in plain sight for the entire world with hardly anyone ever speaking up for you. I am so sorry.
I apologise to you on behalf of all of us who wanted to but did not speak up because we felt powerless to stop the paparazzi and outta control courtiers and so on.
If I have advice for you at all, it is to hire someone to filter out all the hate from the world and only read the good bits.
The bad journalism says nothing about you and everything about them. Please don’t waste your time and mental health on it.
Instead of being afforded the protection, love and security that you were both entitled to, your inheritance was blatantly ripped away from you for no good reason whatsoever and your name has been vilified again and again by the ignoramus and their allies.
From very early on you were both thrown into a media circus and given no reasonable choices whatsoever. Your restraint, dignity and composure are a lesson to us all. Thank you.
I applaud both of you for the sensible choices you made after the vicious attacks you endured and still do. I hope and pray that you’ll find a comfortable sense of normality for your combined lives and perhaps this blogpost can contribute a smidgen to that.
And if you ever were to come to Australia again, I would love to take you and Archie on a whale cruise. You can consider this an official invitation. So fun!
I love you and so do millions of others. God bless you, keep up the good work!
Ps Many thanks to Oprah and her team for providing the support and platform for bringing these deeply troubling issues to the light. I didn’t watch the interview. No need to.
Restitution according to the Bible.
Luke 19:1-9 Jesus entered Jericho and was passing through. A man was there by the name of Zacchaeus; he was a chief tax collector and was wealthy. He wanted to see who Jesus was, but because he was short he could not see over the crowd. So he ran ahead and climbed a sycamore-fig tree to see him since Jesus was coming that way. When Jesus reached the spot, he looked up and said to him, “Zacchaeus, come down immediately. I must stay at your house today.” So he came down at once and welcomed him gladly. All the people saw this and began to mutter, “He has gone to be the guest of a sinner.” But Zacchaeus stood up and said to the Lord, “Look, Lord! Here and now I give half of my possessions to the poor, and if I have cheated anybody out of anything, I will pay back four times the amount.” Jesus said to him, “Today salvation has come to this house, because this man, too, is a son of Abraham.
Exodus 22:1 “If a man steals an ox or a sheep and slaughters or sells it, he must repay five oxen for an ox and four sheep for a sheep.
Ezekiel 33:15 if he restores a pledge, makes restitution for what he has stolen, and walks in the statutes of life without practising iniquity–then he will surely live; he will not die.
This was another fair dinkum Bible study by Mimi Emmanuel.
