Tonight shall bear witness to the long-awaited royal wedding between Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.
With much excitement, anticipation, and media attention around, at least some good wishes appear in order. I personally hope for their own sake, that Meghan and Harry find happiness from their marriage.
That said, overwhelming evidence suggests that Harry is making a big mistake in wedding Meghan Markle, not just on a personal level, but on behalf of his nation and the many ancestors that have gone before him.
Consider: Meghan Markle is 35 and rapidly approaching infertility. She is divorced, has long worked in the degenerate hotbed that is Hollywood, and doesn’t appear a commitment type. There are ensuing controversies pertaining to her family, who warned Harry against the marriage. Considering this, why would a royal that has 30 million of his own women to pick from, choose an ageing actress past her prime?
Moreover, this marriage will have broader consequences beyond two people.
Given the British royal family’s history of relative racial homogeneity, the union between a white Englishman and a biracial American woman is being held as a day that could herald ‘full racial integration’. And as many praise the interracial nature of the wedding, this event will be used to push for further mixed-race marriages. For if the royal family is breaking with tradition and marrying across racial lines, why shouldn’t you?
But no matter how we might want it or not want it to be, genetic similarity matters, as people subconsciously seek the survival of their own genes. This is precisely why people naturally choose partners of similar stock, and why mixed-race marriages have higher rates of divorce. Children of mixed race couples also experience higher rates of depression, in struggling for sufficient answers to their racial identity.
It is one thing to argue individuals should have a freedom to marry who they like. But the preferences of an exceptional few, is a radically different matter to the wholesale encouragement of destructive practices.
Make no mistake about it, Prince Harry is diminishing the English people by marrying across racial grounds. For the definition of anything, necessarily comes to the exclusion of other things. If it becomes impossible to concisely define what the English people are, they will cease to exist as a distinct group. But don’t take my word for it: take the Guardian’s, who claimed the marriage will make it ‘impossible’ to claim blacks aren’t British.
Put simply, Meghan Markle is not English. This isn’t an insult, but merely a statement of fact. She is African American and strongly identifies with her black mother. Evidently, Markle maintains a fundamentally different identity, that is genetically and spiritually not English. No matter what she does for the rest of her life: adopts an English accent, drinks tea, follows cricket, endears herself to St Georges Day or otherwise, she can never be English. She might adopt an English passport, but this is separate from being an English person. Just as how if Harry moved to the United States, began rapping, playing basketball and eating KFC, he could never become an African– American to the fullest extent.
So when the royal family trivializes the admission of new members, allows the mass Islamisation of their country and abandons British nationalism, one is left wondering: what is the point of it anymore?
We likewise shouldn’t be fooled about those who see Meghan and Harry as a people’s couple, who could reinvigorate the British monarchy. Those loudly celebrating this event often have anti-colonial, anti-western, anti-white views, and do not see Britain as a force for historic or contemporary good.
This celebration will be short-lived and will subside long before the royal family’s degradation meets its likely end. As when the family who embodied a people becomes degraded beyond recognition, that people and its global diaspora will naturally lose faith.
