Prince Harry and Meghan Markle announce their engagement

I made the mistake of sharing my opinion on a certain member of the Royal family the other day.  Crudely, and from a position of ignorance, I tried to suggest that this person didn’t have troubles but, instead, faced inconveniences.  I thought it would be obvious that I was commenting on his position of enormous privilege and that there would be no need to offer any detailed explanation of my view.

That was a mistake.

For a number of reasons.

It brought a little whiff of Twitter outrage and it showed me in a poor light.

Words matter.

Choose wisely.
