PODCAST – The second episode of Scandals tells you how, while Meghan Markle and Prince Harry had a destiny all mapped out in the royal family, they dropped everything after two years of marriage.
In this second episode of the Scandales podcast, we might as well be in Succession Where dallas, his ruthless universe. In 2017, Meghan Markle, an American actress, fell into the arms of Harry, a prince. Their love at first sight makes English women dream, and their wedding in Windsor fascinates Americans… Meghan becomes THE princess who can change the world, and the most scrutinized princely couple on the planet. But that was four years ago. Since then, Meghan became a tyrant, then a victim, there was exile to the United States, and we found ourselves there, not really knowing what to choose between admiring them because they fled a system that imprisoned them, or condemn them for their ingratitude towards the royal family.
And that’s what questioned us. Why should we either love them or hate them? How come we all have such strong opinions on this story? In this episode of Scandalsjournalist Marion Galy-Ramounot, deputy editor-in-chief at Madame Figaro, questions our fascination with the Windsors, and wonders what it says about us and our society. At his microphone follow one another:
- Richard Fitzwilliams, consultant and royal commentator, notably officiating for the BBC
- Jamil Dakhlia, media sociologist at the Sorbonne Nouvelle
- Florentin Collomp, senior reporter at Figaroand correspondent in London at the time of Meghan and Harry’s wedding in 2018
- Anne-Laure Peytavin, French journalist based in New York, who followed the developments of Megxit in the United States.
