When Harry Met Meghan

 We do love nothing more than palace intrigue. 

This morning's most popular stories in the Times are dominated by Oprah's interview with Harry and Meghan. The parallels to Diana unmistakable in Meghan's contemplations of suicide, driven nearly mad by a vicious press and the family straitjacket. The racism that has been an open wound in our country exposed with equal ferocity overseas in the contemplation of an unborn child's skin tone.

Four of the top eight pieces.

We can't get enough of peeking under the covers as we read of this couple's struggles from every angle.

Was their departure an act of bravery, of survival or of stupidity and petulance? Were the struggles we face each day lessened by hearing of a son at war with his father and brother? Was this a Shakespearean play in real time?
