Emily Thornbury

I was very impressed about what Emily had to say about the Royal Family and the Prince Harry and Megan situation.

She rightly said that Prince Harry has spent all his life for the country, served in Afghanistan and now must have the right to do what he thinks is right for his family and get protection from our nation for his family.

What I do not understand is that, whilst we have all these privacy laws for normal people, royals don’t seem to have the same rights.

As a member of a royal family the public practically owns you. Where is their right to privacy?

I think that this odd situation about being unable to enjoy freedom of movement like anybody else or privacy seems to make a case for not continuing royalty.

Why should a nation of people have the right to discuss the movements of a member of the royal family and why should a member of the royal family have to ask permission from the nation about whether they can move to Canada or not?

Everybody else has the right to emigrate or immigrate or engage in business arrangements of their own chosing.

It seems to me that the Royal family in Britain is now very much enslaved to the media and public opinion rather than having actually any decisive role in this country.

Not even the fact that they have a large property portfolio makes a case against this being a case of modern luxury slavery.
