Prince Harry Blindsides The Queen: Demands Britain ‘Acknowledge Past Wrongs’ Even If It Is ‘Uncomfortable’
Prince Harry undercut Queen Elizabeth by demanding the British Commonwealth "acknowledge past wrongs" just days after his apology for "endemic" racism..
Prince Harry, who apologized last week for “endemic racism”, shocked fans of the Royal family yet again today when he appeared to betray his grandmother Queen Elizabeth by launching an attack on the British Commonwealth. Harry said that its history of problematic behavior “must be acknowledged,” even if it is “uncomfortable.”
Prince Harry Openly Criticizes The British Commonwealth
Daily Mail reported that Harry said this while he and his wife Meghan Markle were participating in a call with young leaders from the Queen’s Commonwealth Trust.
The call actually took place last week, but it was only just made public on Monday.
Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have said we must all acknowledge the "uncomfortable" past of the Commonwealth.
The Duke of Sussex said "it's not going to be easy" but "it needs to be done".

While talking about “justice and equal rights,” Harry called on the Commonwealth to follow others who have “acknowledged the past” and are “trying to right their wrongs,” before admitting to having his own “unconscious bias.”

Meghan seemed to be in full agreement. She said that there must be a “reckoning” when individuals should be putting their hands up to “own” their past wrongdoings.
“When you look across the Commonwealth, there is no way that we can move forward unless we acknowledge the past,” Harry said from his home in Los Angeles, California.
“So many people have done such an incredible job of acknowledging the past and trying to right those wrongs, but I think we all acknowledge there is so much more still to do.”
His Remarks Will Not “Please” The Queen
This was a clear swipe at the British Empire, which has long been ruled by Harry’s own ancestors. British politician Andrew Rosindell has already fired back by blasting Harry for his comments.
Rosindell said that Harry’s remarks would not “please” the Queen.
“I understand that Harry and Meghan have taken a step out from being members of the Royal Family,” Rosindell said. “Therefore I’m surprised that he would be making comments like that. I don’t agree with what he is saying. We should look forward not back.”
“As someone who has stepped out of the Royal Family he should focus on his own life and not get involved in politics,” he continued. “That is not the appropriate thing to do. I’m not sure his grandmother would be too pleased either.”
@RoyalFamily Kindly remove "Prince" Harry and his wife from any connection with the Queen's Commonwealth Trust. I am a Canadian and I am disgusted by their thinly veiled 'Black Lives Matter' propaganda video today. This is clearly political activism which should not be supported.

Prince Harry Apologizes For Racism
Last week Harry went full “woke” by apologizing for “endemic” institutionalized racism. He said he is “sorry” the world isn’t in the place where young people “deserve it to be.”
His wife Meghan is known for her radically liberal Hollywood views, and it appears that her politics have rubbed off on Harry.
It’s unfortunate that Harry feels the need to publicly betray his own family in this way. The Queen deserves better than this.
