Redi Tlhabi has applauded Prince Harry and his wife Meghan for their bold decision to step back as ‘senior’ members of the Royal Family

The royal couple made the shocking announcement last week and plan to split their time between the United Kingdom and Canada.

Queen Elizabeth says she is “supportive” of their decision and respects their “wish to live a more independent life as a family”.

The British press has labelled the Duke and Duchess of Sussex “spoiled brats” for “quitting” their duties. Some have accused Meghan of negatively influencing Harry.

Redi slammed the couple’s haters, especially those blaming the duchess for “forcing” Harry to agree to the move

“I’m sympathetic to Harry & Meghan for MANY reasons; political & personal. The personal is that I’m married & I can NEVER make my husband do anything he doesn’t want to do. He cannot make me do ANYTHING I do not want to do. Big or small. So Meghan “Made Harry do it” is odd for me,” she wrote on Twitter.

Redi shared what she believes could have resulted in the couple’s decision.

“A scenario: When Harry witnessed abusive, racist coverage Meghan endured in Britain, could he have asked for support from royal family? Support that DID NOT MATERIALISE? Could this have led him to decide “Bugger them. I’m going with her.” It’s possible. So why is it HER fault?”


Redi been following “Megxit”, as the British press has dubbed it, ever since the couple dropped their bombshell.

“Well done for being an example Meghan. Women EVERYWHERE should ditch everything & everyone they deem toxic and soul-destroying. It’s called self-mastery; you miserable, arrogant, bitter, piece of manure!” she said in response to one of duchess’ haters.

She also agreed with royal fans who believe that Meghan has been unfairly treated by the British press

“That’s why I get Meghan & Harry’s decision. That’s why I can truly conclude that all the journalists, commentators, critics & family who are attacking them, don’t know love. They don’t know what it means & how it feels. Many people here DO live as if they’ve never known love. Sad.”

Here’s a look at some of the posts she retweeted:

Drama aside, Redi and many Twitter users found humour in some of the Megxit memes:
