I think I have to come down on the side of her being a racist. I'm not sure she's even aware of it. Maybe just the way she was raised. "The princess, whose father was an SS officer,..." leads me to wonder about the lessons she learned at daddy's knee high jackboots. Although her parents did divorce, but I'm not sure when. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Princess_Michael_of_Kent


Besides which, Harry has had some interesting incidents of his own, http://www.newsweek.com/prince-harrys-worst-moments-meghan-markle-rogue-723177

I didn't get my invitation in the mail yet.

I also hear reactionary self-pity from colleagues the three days a week
I work. It is all bcecoming rather tedious.

Do you just let it pass?
Or do you react to it? Thank them for sharing their thoughts? Tell them that, sadly, their genius will go unrecognized? Suggest, um, 'solutions' to the 'problems' they talk about?

All three at different times. One day I felt so ill that I went home
early. I'm still there. I don't know how it is there, but here we have
a lot of tv programmes that massage their prejudices.

This would be their great-grand aunt? Far enough away in blood to not give a damn if she shows herself as racist, which if the article is correct, she would be.

In his youth Harry was a bit undereducated, albeit at Eton. He should
have known that German WWII servicemen, including Waffen SS, did not
wear swastika armbands. Note that the General SS paraded unarmed. Over
time he has got up to speed in many ways. He is a good public speaker,
without the hyperdiphthongal accent of the other royals, and stands a
chance of injecting a touch of modernity into the institution, how good
a chance remains to be seen.

Well that's completely different then.

People are always talking about how bad National Socialist are but I hear that Wihelm Kube gave candy to children. Right before they were murdered.

Let's see what Princess Micheal wears to the wedding, shall we. If she goes in blackface all bets are off.
