Hey, it's Victoria Day in Canada once again. We are the only country in the entire Commonwealth (former name: "The British Empire") that still celebrates Queen Victoria's birthday with a statutory holiday, good little colonials that we are. Even Britain doesn't mark the occasion anymore.
So therefore, this is the date on which She Who Seeks blog traditionally makes fun of the Royal Family but jeez, I feel kinda bad about doing it this year. They've had a helluva year, haven't they, the poor buggers. Well, maybe "poor" isn't the right word . . . or is it?
Oh, who the hell am I kidding?
I do believe Meghan, however, that she faced racism from some members of the Royal Family (and certainly from the British press as well).
But I don't think the Queen was worried about race at all. She doesn't need to.
I suspect the press is blowing "Megxit" out of all proportion. Meghan is not the "be all and end all" of evil in the world.
Why isn't Prince Andrew treated with anywhere near the same public hatred and condemnation as Meghan is?
And now poor old Prince Philip has died too.
Oh for god's sake, let's all just move on from Meghan-bashing and get started on fresher bogus royal gossip, okay?
Sheesh. Queen Victoria should have the last word on all this. After all, it's her day today.
