God, remember the catastrophe of the British media in 2019, when the Duchess of Sussex was the guest-editor of British Consumption? It was a month-long melodrama because apparently every British journalist, royal commentator and magazine editor came out of the woodwork and blew up Meghan… you know, trying to give a magazine guest-editing and spotlight on women and girls who don’t usually. Highlight by enjoyment. For example, there were some minor things like criticizing Meghan’s guest-editorship, but looking at the British media, it seems that Meghan personally slapped the queen and spat on her. At the time, though, the British media had been insulting Meghan for almost a year, and I imagine Meghan was quite numb for most of the excessive response. But according to Tina Brown, Meghan’s “Waterloo” was the guest-editor of British Vogue.
“At the root of the problem,” Brown wrote, “was Sussex determining whether the celebrity was a royal or a royal celebrity, two different states.” He went on to say that “the summer of 2019 has confirmed to the media that Sussex has created a decisive and deadly pivot for the exact direction of the equation.”
“It was the Vogue project,” said Brown, the guest editor of the Duchess of Britain’s leading fashion magazine, “It was Meghan’s Waterloo.” A reference to Napoleon’s defeat in the famous battle of 1815. Many royalty have online news platforms with guest-edited publications, radio programs, and little tabloid commentary or criticism. “Celebrity guest editing is usually a risk-free media suck-up. Prince Charles has done this three times for Country Life Magazine. Harry received approval reviews in 2017 while hosting an episode of Radio 4’s prestigious Today show, the same year Kate’s digital journey at the Huffington Post UK was hailed as a champion for childhood mental health. “
At first, Megan decided not to cover the magazine. In a letter to his editor for the issue, Eninful wrote: “From the beginning, we talked about the cover, whether he would be in it or not. In the end, he felt that it would somehow be an ‘arrogant’ thing for this particular project … He wanted, Instead, focus on the women she admires. “It was caught in the press as a veiled criticism of the Duchess of Cambridge – Kate Middleton, the wife of Megan’s brother-in-law Prince William – who appeared on the cover of the magazine’s centennial issue in 2016.
Although it has become the best-selling issue of British consumption in its 103-year history, the reaction in the media has been deadly. “The glossy package was seen by tabloids as a snowy peafowl,” Brown wrote, “a religious fluff package by advanced columnists, and a mysterious bore by traditional Vogue readers who preferred a more immediate solution to the problem of where to find the best camels, including the kimono tie.” Hair coat. “
The environmental aspects of the magazine’s content, such as Thanberg’s inclusion and Harry’s Goodall interview revealing that he and Meghan’s only two children would be “maximum” due to the large family’s environmental impact, were criticized for the couple’s numerous summer personal reasons. Highlighting the jet trip, Brown said: “It’s gone off in the media like a flatulent explosion of methane, due to the fact that Duke personally flew his carbon footprint at Google Camp.
Brown expressed his belief that the response was “an example of rebellious British sensitivity and a national tendency to laugh at sincere intentions” which he suggests that American-born duchess could be misunderstood.
Ah, so the unhinged media freakout was only part and parcel “The British sensitivity, and the national tendency to smile sincerely.” Which Megan should have known. As such, is it his fault that the ridiculously excessive response of the media was only the sensitivity of the British to anyone making fun of pioneers, honest and straight-forward people? Ah I see. Personally, although I don’t think the insanity has helped in any way, I suspect that there was probably a breaking point when members of the royal family and the media tried to force Meghan to commit suicide while she was pregnant. I suspect Brown’s reference to “Meghan’s Waterloo” is even better … This was the point at which the British media fully realized that they hated Meghan and said how much they could benefit.
Also, strangely enough, Tina didn’t mention that Meghan’s guest-editor had the whole point that she was highlighting her smart set capsule collection. Which, of course, made the video an overnight sensation.
