Harry would probably imagine life outside the RF much the same as he lives now, but on a smaller scale and without the same number of staff to look after his every whim. I don’t expect the thought of having to earn his own living has ever entered his equation at all. If Harry had been able to get his wish, step down from full time duties, do his own thing (while living in the UK) but continue with sufficient RF engagements to warrant Prince Charles supporting him all the way, then nothing much would change in his life.
It wasn’t a classroom, it was a teachers conference. I had been bullied severely in high school for several years after coming out and a couple days previously there was a serious incident which I’m not going to share for personal reasons- the bare bones is there was an incompetent substitute teacher and some not nice people decided to take some liberties. Both my parents were understandably angry and decided that, since parents evening was a couple of days away, they would use the time to talk to the principal.
This man was sweating with nerves giving every half baked answer you would expect from a monkey in a suit. It was almost funny how much he squirmed, whilst my mother was getting more and more agitated, eventually shouting at this man demanding he give a straight answer and sort this situation out before she decided to get higher authorities and the press involved. So there me and my parents are in a little office next to the entrance hall where most of the other parents are ( this detail gets relevant later) and my mama gets started- “why was the teacher hired? Why were they not in the room for most of the lesson? You new my child was being bullied and so far you’ve done nothing. How are the bullies being penalised?”

Then this silly snake of a man said it. He turned to my dad and said “get your woman under control!” My dad was not having that AT ALL. Now both of my parents are shouting, my dad indignant at the statement and my mother angry that the principal would dare to tell her to be quiet concerning the welfare of her child. Eventually the principal said that if we didn’t leave he would call the police to escourt us out.
But, you must realize that most teachers were also disappointed with the appointment of Betsy DeVos. Students will occasionally overhear what the teachers say to each other, especially the new or younger teachers who are not aware of this. In schools, the talk about the president largely goes on between students repeating their parent’s view. I recall a student saying that Obama should get assassinated. I reprimanded him with the warning that if the president were assassinated or there was even an attempt, I would have to report to the authorities what he had said.
In his mind, however, a lot would be different because, while away from public eye, he would be able to move about freely. In fact, though the irony would be lost on Harry, much as every other member of the RF does at the moment!! But Meghan certainly didn’t want to leave the RF and have her standard of luxury reduced in any way. She had got used to being waited on hand and foot and she wanted it to continue – in mansion style. So, LA for her – her adjunct, Harry, tagging along to ensure her father in law kept on supplying the money.
