The mythology will no doubt persist but if the veil can be lifted even a little, then I give Meghan and Harry credit for this cataract operation.

The particular aspect which baffles me (not for the first time) about the whole Royal myth is the degree to which so many people, both inside and outside the establishment, all over the world, participate in the myth whilst knowing perfectly well that it is a myth and with evidence clearly in view to anyone who cares to look, that Royals (throughout history) can and often do behave as badly as 'ordinary' people, sometimes worse, because they can get away with it. Yet the veil of mythology which coats eyes more effectively than cataracts makes it seem that really bad human behaviour, even criminal behaviour, simply does not ever happen within Royal circles because these are superior beings living in a superior world where such things simply don't happen. So when Opra Winfrey's mouth along with the world's collective mouth drops open when Meghan or Harry mention that an anonymous Royal asked a racist question, the collective assumption is: OMG! You mean that a Royal can actually be racist? As well as all the other awful things that any Royal might be? Impossible!!
