Other views: When Harry mar­ries Meghan

USA TODAY US Edition - - NEWS -

Piers Mor­gan, Daily Mail:

“Thomas Markle ad­mit­ted he was paid to do the pic­tures, telling TMZ he took the money to re­cast his im­age. ... This de­vel­op­ment will es­pe­cially hurt Meghan be­cause so many of her other fam­ily mem­bers have al­ready be­haved like the worst kind of vile, dys­func­tional, money-grab­bing mis­fits in the runup to her mar­riage. Her es­tranged half brother Thomas Jr. even recently pub­lished a hand­writ­ten let­ter he sent to Prince Harry urg­ing him to ditch his sis­ter. ... By tak­ing the pa­parazzi shilling, and now miss­ing the wed­ding, Thomas Markle broke his fu­ture son-in-law’s trust, and his lit­tle girl’s heart.”

Zoe Wil­liams, The Guardian:

“For Meghan her­self, this is like the hon­ey­moon pe­riod of an abu­sive re­la­tion­ship. At the mo­ment, she is princess of all hearts and can do no wrong; no­body would be so coarse as to print a pic­ture of her at the gym, or read­ing a how-to on the cor­rect us­age of Bri­tish ti­tles. Yet the terms have been set: Every­thing you do, they know about it. ... Every­thing your rel­a­tives do, they have caught on cam­era. It’s rosy now, sun­shine, but wait un­til they’re bored five years down the line and they find out that you once shouted at a maid; or were spot­ted in John Lewis look­ing at bug­gies; or went to a club with­out your hus­band and didn’t get home till five past 12.”

Miche­line May­nard, Aus­tralian Broad­cast­ing Corp. News:

“Meghan will marry her prince at a time when the world is di­vided about al­most every­thing, in­clud­ing her. Un­wit­tingly, that makes her the per­fect royal bride for our times.”
