Spread the love


During my first visit back to Australia since my parents passed away, I read in the papers that despite Prince Harry being in the UK this week, neither his father nor his brother could make time in their busy schedules to see him.

Initially, I felt a sense of satisfaction. Harry deserves to be ignored, I thought, after his and Meghan’s betrayals of the Royal Family.

But then I reconsidered. For once, I felt a pang of sympathy for Harry, isolated from the people he loves.

I’ve been in a similar situation: the wayward daughter who left home in Perth to build a new life far away, who returned only for happy occasions and holidays—but who wasn’t present when my elderly parents needed care. That responsibility fell on my family back home.

Prince Harry and Meghan are currently visiting a primary and secondary school in Abuja, Nigeria, as part of a three-day trip.

Meanwhile, Prince William is undertaking engagements in St Mary’s Harbour in the Isles of Sicily, located in southwest England.

Reflecting on my own experiences, there were times when unkind words were exchanged between my siblings and me. It deeply saddened our parents that I was so distant, as family meant everything to them. However, over the past year, I’ve made efforts to apologize to my relatives for my mistakes, particularly to my younger brother and his family.

The highlight of my recent trip was reconnecting with my brother. Knocking on his door and feeling his warm, forgiving embrace was immensely healing. It felt like the weight of past grievances lifted from my shoulders.

I hope Harry can find it in himself to apologize too—not through email or a voice message, but with a genuine and complete apology to his father, his brother, Kate, and Camilla, all of whom he and Meghan have wronged.

As for Meghan, she is currently in Africa exploring her heritage after discovering her Nigerian roots. She has been given the Nigerian name Amira Ngozi Lolo, meaning ‘Blessed Warrior Princess’. Perhaps there’s no direct translation for ‘back-stabbing, money-grubbing royal hanger-on’.

Prince Harry and Meghan are currently in Abuja, Nigeria, visiting the country as part of the Invictus Games anniversary.
