Harry gives an impression of being chummy with the obamas, I sense a rift coming.
Harry gives an impression despite his somewhat isolated upbringing of being not a bad chap.
Queeny is no fool, not at all and those who choose to ignore or dismiss things that are cherished to her such as protocol, family tradition will know they have crossed a line.
Her age spans her grandfathers time as King Emperor when his Empire was at its biggest, her fathers time as the same role, and her own as big chief of the commonwealth (Empire)
That someone of her era and background should be distressed about the way protocol may not mean the same to younger members of the family is understandable. She was born only twenty years after the last Queen died in 1901
I suspect that at the back of this is the early death of her father. A subject her mother and sister could not forgive and laid the blame clearly at the feet of his brother. A popular man before WW2 who caused much distress going against convention of the times by throwing away his claim of Throne and Empire for a divorced American woman (just like Meghan)
Mrs Simpson as the ex King often said had no idea what he walked away from in terms of power and prestige, it is clear she would have been as awkward trying to fit in as any other outsider (Meghan?)
Once the ex King has made the break he was a constant problem to his relatives over many things. It was, and still is a subject of his relationship with Hitler. Harry has a thing going on with the obamas
A lot of potential parallels here that may cause problems for what Queeny calls "the firm"
Popular young man, with a chosen spouse who has same background as previous huge problem for this family 80 years ago
The lady in question having strong views that are polar opposite of her to be husband and his family, and cracks already appearing because of it
I personally have no issues with Harry or Meghan and wish them well. For them both to have a peaceful life it would be better if both accepted that being the brother of the heir is one status, a stus that will recede and much as his uncles did once Harry's brother appeared. Harry should IMO go quietly and not rock the boat
