I figured out the Royal problem

Maybe this isn’t important to anyone here. It took me a few days to marinate on the Harry, Meghan interview. Here’s what I’ve got:

Charles is a narcissistic parent, William is the Golden child (literally), Harry was supposed to be the scapegoat but he refused to play along, Charles retaliated and essentially disinherited him, the tabloids are flying monkeys, Meghan is the proxy scapegoat and collateral damage. Classic narcissistic family dynamics.

Don’t believe me? Check out the narcissistic family roles with Dr. Ramani.

Does Charles have NPD? I dunno. I’m not a shrink. But I’ve seen enough to know he’s the narc in the family and he’s on the high side of the scale.

This is what makes him unsuitable to be the next king and why the Queen doesn’t retire even at the age of 94. The Queen’s role is to be self-effacing. She sacrificed her personality to become Britain. Charles is anything but self-effacing.

It’s a problem.

Anyway, that’s my take. Discuss. Or not. I just think we need a break from politics every now and then.

One more thing: since a narcissist is shallow, seeks attention and praise, and is all about protecting his image, Charles may have become more than a little perturbed that Archie would physically resemble him least of all his grandchildren.

Charles made the racist remark.
