The emasculation of Prince Harry appears to be complete because his wife, actress Meghan Markle, has reportedly convinced him to quit hunting and sell off his handmade rifles.
According to a report in The Sun, the weaponry sold privately to another hunter was worth about $60,000 in U.S. dollars, and that “Meghan is opposed to hunting and pals hinted the Duke of Sussex would give up to appease her…Last week conservationist Dr Jane Goodall said she expected Harry to turn his back on bloodsports.”
Apparently the transaction occurred five months ago, but is just surfacing in the media. Harry, a U.K. army veteran, was reportedly a lifelong avid hunter before he met Meghan. He even went hunting for wild boar in Germany in December 2017 during the time of his engagement to the former Suits star and Deal or No Deal suitcase girl.
Harry seems all-in on feminist Meghan Markle’s woke agenda, which includes flying around the world to virtue-signal about global warming.
The Duke and Duchess of Sussex staged a “Megxit” in January, in which they exited Buckingham Palace for an independent lifestyle, and moved first to Canada, and then to L.A., where apparently they will pursue a Hollywood red-carpet lifestyle. They’ve also set up a charitable foundation.
Virtually every family, regardless of status, has issues, and couples often have to make compromises. What’s sad is that Meghan Markle has seemingly caused a rift between Harry and his immediate family, his royal duties, his pals, and his military obligations and associations.
“News of the sale comes a week after it was claimed Prince Harry told friends he missed the ‘camaraderie’ of life in the forces. Harry was stripped of his military appointments when he and Meghan stepped back as senior royals on March 31. He had to give up roles including Captain General of the Royal Marines and Honorary Air Commandant of RAF Honington,” the Daily Mail explained. “The Duke of Sussex reportedly told friends he ‘cannot believe’ how his life has been ‘turned upside down’ since moving to the U.S.”
With son Archie– who celebrated his first birthday this week– in the picture now, a potential divorce/child custody settlement could be complicated, including sorting out technicalities of international law and how that relates to the British monarchy.
Twitter users responded to the news of Prince Harry’s gun-free zone. Here is a sample:
In 2018, I said that Prince Harry was marrying the wrong woman and faced a TON of backlash for it.
I still think I was right though.
It pains me to watch the public emasculation of a man, but I wish them all the best.

I was actually on the “leave Meghan alone” boat when she 1st married him.
After she essentially made him choose between his royal family and her, she is, in fact, a spoiled entitled brat. They’ll break up in the future watch, he will realize one day blood is thicker than water.

She is a horrible controlling person. I’m not from the UK, but disrespecting the Queen & the Royal family is wrong. She is stripping him of everything that made him the man he is.

Yeah, she’s got him on a leash and it’s sad to see. At this point she’s just trying to see what she can get away with and how far she can push him.

I am all about tradition. The fact that she got him to completely separate himself from his family and basically renounce his title to possibly move to LA is awful.
Looking at Harry 10yrs ago and Harry today, they are two different men. Some bits better others not so much.

The only reason a man should sell his rifle collection when marrying is if she has a much better collection, and you’re weeding out duplicates so you can buy more.

Some Markle critics have accused her of being a social climber, even comparing her to Yoko Ono, John Lennon’s wife who supposedly broke up the Beatles. Others are drawing parallels with American Wallis Simpson who convinced England’s Edward VIII to step down as king.
Quipsters once referred to Harry as “the spare,” because Prince William is “the heir,” i.e., the next in line to the throne after Prince Charles, who presumably will take over for Queen Elizabeth at some point. Technically, Harry is sixth in line, and even before he dropped out of the running, his chances to become King were remote.
