    I hope Philip comes back and bags Harry!

    I truly never cared much for the Royal Family…the same way I don’t really care about politics – I can’t be bothered with tabloids and such. But this series of yours, HG, is truly enlightening (not just about narcissists, but empaths too).
    I watched Diana’s famous interview for the first time, as a consequence, of your Diana duplication analysis. I don’t know what I would have thought about it, back in the day, when it first came out – I just know I would have watched it with a completely different filter back then.
    What a remarkable woman. I get, of course, that people loved her and visually, she comes across as a classy, beautiful individual.
    But as I watched her describe her marriage and the pain that she suffered – and how she still attributed much of that to the roles that she and Charles had, and the expectations they both endured, in the Institution…yet the complete lack of bitterness and resentment in her manner…it, one, really helps explain Harry’s desire to ‘mend’ things with his father and some of his empathic traits. Two, it really demonstrates how the context can provide rationalizations for the narcissist’s poor behaviour, and how Diana truly could not see that being in relationship with a narcissist was the true source of her pain (in the middle of dealing with the RF and all that comes with it). I can definitely see how she both elevated and humanized the “Royal” family…she clearly has both some Magnet…and Carrier traits – along with courage and fortitude. The humility was plain; she really didn’t grasp why people were so enamored with her.
    The comparison is laughable, Meghan Markle makes the Royal Family look like a 3-ring circus.

    I know this is obvious to some…but it really struck just struck me after having watched Diana speak.

    HG, I know you’ve referred previously to Prince Philip as being a narc but having read so many of the more substantive tributes to him (as opposed to the mere platitudes) I do wonder whether a full application of the Tudorscope might reach a different view. He does appear to have been a man of honour, integrity and humility. There’s this account for instance:

    Delighted to see this aspect of the Markle debacle being put under the Tudorscope.

    But first to the sad news πŸ™ Prince Phillip unfortunately didn’t make it to his 100th birthday, and after living that long – with a couple of months to go – it almost seems egregious he didn’t get that opportunity. May he rest in peace. Someone brought up the fact he missed out on getting his letter from the Queen, which hardly seems the most appropriate response, but I can see the irony (in getting a letter of congratulations from the Queen who is also his wife!). I imagine the Queen is shattered, and I am shattered for her, also knowing her own time for demise may be not too far around the corner (though I hope that isn’t the case, but inevitable all the same). My condolences to Her Majesty on her loss.

    In the midst of all this we have the dynamic being discussed, and one of the first questions on many people’s lips will be that of the funeral and the possibility of the Sussex’s attending. I’m going to take a guess here and say Meghan’s pregnancy will prevent her (along with all the concerns about Covid) and either she or Harry may use this as reasoning for not attending. These would be valid reasons, but I also think after the trashing they gave the Royal family in the Oprah interview they know they would not be welcome in a more general sense, her pregnancy providing the perfect cover for them not to have to confront the consequences of their actions.

    He was a very old man, so they won’t feel responsible for his death in any way (and I don’t think they should be held accountable on that basis alone), but the question has to be asked how much of a care did they have prior to his death, and it’s obvious they had none. To attempt to show they care now would seem to be somewhat hypocritical to me. There is a chance Harry will seek to fulfill an element of his Royal duty, as well as provide a more personal response, in attending his Grandfather’s funeral, but with the lack of respect he has shown, and the lack of respect now due to him, I’d say that would make it a very uncomfortable affair all round.

    Is it a chance for Harry to consider his family again in light of events and their importance to him? Could it be a chance to open his eyes to his wife’s machinations? I’d say, for the most part, he’s got his eyes firmly fixed on the future as a fully ensnared empath. Any inability to attend his the funeral will be a collateral consequence of giving Meghan what she wants, and what Meghan wants, Meghan gets. Including Prince Philip’s head on a platter (if I’m going to be dramatic!).

    No doubt this will be the gift that keeps on giving with the dramatic elements of life and death being thrown into the mix. I’ll continue to look forward to this series as I’m sure there will be a lot more to add! Looking forward to watching the second part of the Diana Duplication (you have a way with words, HG!)

      Hi LET, I love reading your assessments of what’s going on, Asp Emp’s also. I mean of course in addition to HG’s. It is all fascinating to me, as an American. I had assumed Harry would go, to support his grandmother. Given your assessment I am really curious to see how it plays out. We know narcissists cause problems with these situations, I hope the Queen is protected. But it may be an eye-opener, depending on how Meghan handles it, to people who still support Meghan.

      I am very sad for the Queen, her Prince may not have been perfect but he was hers (as much as a narcissist can be) and for such a long time, it has to feel like a terrible loss to her. I send her my condolences also.

      One thing I was glad to hear referenced today was about Prince Philip’s sense of humor, another from years ago from Princess Diana was that he was fine toward her, and his seemingly steadfast support of his wife, these were the only small pieces I “knew” of him prior to narcsite and they made me think well of him.

      Glad to read your thoughts LET.

        Thank you so much, AV. I have been very drawn in by this saga and some aspects of it really get my blood boiling, especially this element of the Diana Duplication (as HG so adequately describes it). I see HG has provided another update in light of Prince Philip’s death so I will look forward to listening to that and his take on how things may play out in the coming days. Seems as though Harry is on his way home to support his Grandmother – I’m thinking she will handle the whole thing with grace and dignity as always – and Meghan is staying home – no surprises there. I thought the response on their social media platform was shite, and most certainly lacking in empathy. My guess is Meghan got the last word on that one … and I sensed a bit of snark in the use of the word “service”. Better listen to HG before I go down another rabbit hole on that one!

        The death of her Prince has to feel like a terrible loss to the Queen, he has been by her side so long, but she is one of the most stoic individuals I’ve ever seen. She’s given her all for country and the Commonwealth, living a complete life of service. I’m sure she is aware of others feeling her loss at this time and I hope that will buoy her in her time of need.

        Prince Philip had an interesting sense of humour that seemed to keep the Queen amused, and one of my favourite images is of him dressed as a Guardsman and her laughing as she walks by after recognizing him πŸ™‚ I think that probably says a lot about their relationship and an element of youthful joyfulness that remained a part of it. I honestly don’t know how you give your whole life up like that and still find moments where the weight of the burden is lifted. Somehow he helped her to find those moments.

        1. A Victor says:

          LET, thank you for sharing that story of the interaction between them! That is so sweet!

        2. Asp Emp says:

          Hello LET, I really liked reading your comment – especially the last paragraph – it is obvious that the Queen and the Duke had understanding & acceptance between them. If you look at the other RF ‘relationships’, there is a clear & distinct difference.

          1. lickemtomorrow says:

            Thanks, AspEmp, and agreed on the Queen and Duke of Edinburgh πŸ™‚

            I think he would want people to appreciate the more irreverent moments, tbh, and some of those moments he shared with the Queen. She was/is a good sport!

          2. Asp Emp says:

            I agree with you on that too, LET

    Diana was 19 years old – such a young age – when she joined the RF.

    The night before she died, I had attended a hen night that was great fun – there was a lot of plate smashing, well, it was a Greek restaurant. After a few hours sleep, being woken up and the TV is on…. such a sad day for the world.

    HG, I liked the use of an invisible man and the ‘bolting on’ of various things concept to explain in a different perspective about character traits acquisition. The word ‘patchwork’ is even better – each piece being a different ‘character trait’ from different people – making it like a mish-mash yet works for a narcissist’s construct, maybe using the shades of green for ie qualifications, blues for cars etc.

    The changing of hair-style & colour of hair was ‘rife’ within one female narcissist that I knew – always changing to ‘mimic’ the ‘current interest’ of the male (not always a narcissist) that she was trying to keep up with – she even mimicked me, which never really impressed me.

    From what HG has said in this video, it comes across that Meghan was / is ‘obsessed’ with Diana – which does not mean that there is any ‘adoration’ on Meghan’s part.

    Thank you for this video, HG.

    1. A Victor says:

      Hi Asp Emp, I missed the invisible man reference, I will be rewatching to hear that part. Glad you mentioned it.

      1. Asp Emp says:

        AV, that’s great to know – that is why we have these discussions. Yeah, I thought it was good analogy on HG’s part. I did like his analogy on his ‘Character Trait Acquisition’ video – using bits of broken mirror in a similar way. Yet, I like the ‘invisible’ man version better because you cannot actually see some of the traits, if you can understand.
