Harry and Meghan

This week, the British Royal Family is placed under renewed public scrutiny following a “bombshell” interview with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.

The CDC has just released its guidelines for people who have received vaccinations for COVID-19. Although many will now be able to return to some pre-pandemic activities, when is a person who has received their shots still not considered “vaccinated”? Also in the news this week is a new report that claims the United States is doing less to contribute to freedom around the world. We look at this, and why some countries view American political philosophies a potential danger.

Then shifting our attention to the story one everyone’s mind this week, we analyze the explosive interview Oprah Winfrey recently conducted with Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, and why it has the British tabloids “apoplectic.” More significantly, we ask why this story is the sensation that it has become, what its cultural significance is, and why the current online media environment facilitated one of the most revealing glimpses of the British Royal Family in recent memory. Will they ever fully recover in the aftermath of the Harry and Megan “tell-all”?
