For about a month in December 2022 to January 2023, Prince Harry and Meghan were everywhere. A Netflix documentary to a book, Spare, the whole world was hearing what the couple had to say after they were no longer front line royals.
Everyone, Piers Morgan included, seems to have formed really strong opinions on them. Or at least there has been a nearly unlimited amount of TV time, social media clicks and column inches detailed to each and every breath they take.
Our voters considered whether they themselves really cared about Harry and Meghan.
Meanwhile, our age 5-11 voters discussed the meaning of disrespect and considered how easy it is to recognise when someone is being disrespectful towards themselves or others.
"You can't always know if something is disrespectful if you haven't seen the whole incident."
“The Royal Family seems to be a very popular topic on the news but it isaimed at older people than us. We don’t find this relevant as to us they are just another famous family.”
“Maybe if the media didn't force feed news stories about Meghan and Harry, the news would have space for real stories like the cost of living crisis, transgender rights [...] and the crisis currently in the NHS."
