Canada to cease security funding for Harry and Meghan
"The assistance will cease in the coming weeks, in keeping with their change in status," the office of Public Safety Minister Bill Blair said.
Nobody owes the kids anything, either. Neither of them are hostages in the RF. If you want out, you’re all the way out, bon chance. Leaving a key under the mat just in case the grand freedom experiment flops isn’t an option. They still play up, and profit, from the fact that he’s a royal, and she’s whoever she is, darling little rebels. I actually like the guy, stand up fella all around and I respect greatly what he’s done.I don’t believe Harry owes anyone anything merely due to pure accident of birth. I also don’t think he needs to answer to anyone on the matter of ‘service’. He’s given a very great deal of himself for his country, for fellow veterans, and for others. If royal duties are incompatible with the sort of life he and his family wish to lead, then I wish him well.
As yesterday’s Buckingham Palace statement put it: “In stepping away from the work of the Royal family it is not possible to continue with the responsibilities and duties that come with a life of public service.”
Part of the problem is that the Sussexes do not seem to understand what public service is. As a California-born actress, Meghan can arguably be forgiven for this, but it somewhat beggars belief that Harry, a prince who grew up in the Firm, agreed to respond to the Queen’s statement yesterday with the line: “We can all live a life of service. Service is universal.”
