"And the biggest thing that I know is that I. I never thought that this would be easy but I thought aww fair so less than two years since their fairytale royal wedding. What's gone so long all will it all turned out out to be right for these times? Are Hirsch the author of British and the Queen's biographer. Robert Lacey Guide US through a drama worthy of the Crown Robert. Welcome to the program. I'm off what I would like to start with you. You've been on this program many times you've talked about royal family but also society and British the whole idea of your book and racism. I want to know. How much do you think? Racism is played into this. He's a disaffection at least by Meghan and her husband Harry to the way they've been treated here I think it's impossible to ignore the context of racism awesome and not necessarily in the way the world family has behaved towards Megan individually and not necessarily in the way in which the rich public of behave towards her but in the treatment amount of the press and especially the tabloid press that has been an undeniable racist on the tone from the very beginning and I feel that that narrative about her being somehow linked to violent crime. I mean let's not forget humane straight out of competence straight out of. Let me put this up. Because we've got that Daily Mail mail headline in two thousand sixteen. Harry's girl is almost straight outta Compton Gang Scott home of her mother revealed. It's almost impossible to imagine a a white person who is from Los Angeles who has no known association to any gang violence being described in that way for no other reason than the fact of where she grew up and there are other. Oh you didn't grow up in college in Clinton and there was even the suggestion that should the clean ever wished to visit make mother. There might be a hail of bullets to stemming outside. I mean anyone who you has grown up with. The language of our press knows the way in which they again and again associate people of color with violent crime and this coded language about gangs and violence silence is inevitably interlinked with ideas about people of African heritage heritage specifically and there were other things. When Meghan markle ate an avocado? She was associated with the mass murder of gangs that linked to the trafficking of Avocado. She created a charity. Cookbook for the victims comes over a tragic fire that killed many people in a very multicultural. Part of London. Grenfell Grenfell Tower fire. She was accused of having links to extremists extremists who were apparently connected to a mosque that benefited from a charity. And if you look at these narratives in the tabloid press you can see identical things but other senior royals oils have done in their eating habits in the way they create their baby in the charity. Work they do in guest editing publications. She gets justed folks. She was accused of being racist against white people of Asia included but it was an issue about women of color alone and meanwhile other oil you have done other guest editorship so have done similar. Things have been praised for their actions now. Unfortunately there's so much ignorance about what racism is in Britain I short of an overtly racist caricature or racial swear words. People will not accept that race is a factor. And in fact they're not. There's a huge debate right now. Oh why she complaining. We're not racist I mean Pretty Patel who is the home secretary has basically said that anybody of any race can get along in this this country. But I wanted to ask you Robert Because you've written a lot about the royal family. You're one of the First Books Majesty about the Royal Family and the Queen does this make you cringe. ENJ- do you accept from your perspective that there is an unpleasant undertone which even Prince Harry complained about. He used that term on. You know undertones of racism when I asked the press to lay off his his fiancee girlfriend at that time. I'm afraid to say I could not agree more with what He's saying when you sit in your New York Times article. There is still a deep correlation between privilege and raisins. Country is quite right and and there's examples you chose say about the carters the weakened avocados. We've seen in the press how. Kate Middleton William's wife Y- uh when she doesn't avocado recipe. She's praised for it. So I'm not going to argue a tool where I think I may differ from you though is thinking king that this is the main issue for her departure. Because I don't think that would just leave after eighteen months or so. If racism was the only thing I actually think I'd like to think it I think right to think that if this worthier is she would stay she would fight it for a bit at least and I think the speed lead with which this has happened in fact reflects other things what we're not here to talk about. It's the rift between Harry and and wheels. There is a profound split in the royal family when not in the royal family between these two brothers recent example of it for the before all the summits last Monday at Sandringham the Queen called the Queen called summit for all the family to sit down with their private secretaries. And try and sort this. She's shaking the heads together for being. She's furious about this the Queen and the way they've screwed it up. She invited the two brothers to lunch for sort of makeup. Before the powwow how Harry accepted William did not really you know that for a fact we take you see him arriving just before to Sandringham he we can only presume. You only wanted to meet in the context of private secretaries across the table. So let me ask you. You've just mentioned kate. And William I do think there's a little bit of a misogynistic twist here like the British tabloids are always pitting the women against each other and they have been from the beginning practically pitting Megan and kate against each other. Do you see that you look at statement. Megan and hurry statement about leaving. There was a a whole paragraph where they talked about how they want to work with different elements of the president future which I took. It's quite an opens snob to the traditional royal press corps that they want to work with a new generation of media with nontraditional media outlets. And I think that's that's something about the ways in which we saw that yesterday because Megan Meghan yesterday visited the woman's shelter in Vancouver on her own terms her own people released it. She's already saying to two and taking up your point. Exactly she's already saying to Buckingham Palace. Whatever happens we are on our own now? We want control of how we interact. Interact with the world. Can we just say the prior to marriage. Megan was a UN woman's advocate and she was also a global ambassador for World Vision. So let us talk about this press issue because I think that is is the the nub of it they complain about being treated unfairly and I was quite struck by what Prince Harry said to Tom. Brad be the reporter who did that famous documentary and had very. In retrospect they were telegraphing their unhappiness. And where this was needing it was a cry for help. And so interesting to hear you say that but this is just so poignant about Prince Harry and the tabloids what he said and how. It gives him flashbacks to what happened to his mother. Just listen I think being in this in this role in this job every single time I see it. Every time I hear a click every time I see a flash it takes me straight back so in that respect it's it's the worst reminder of her life as opposed to the best. Can I just jump in there to say. That exactly proves the point that I think he's coming from Harry and Meghan supporting him. In this. But the the impetus for this move I mean and again but it makes our point because all the papers saying it's the wicked Meghan. WHO's leading him down? I say it's is fascinating to see the media narrative which was immediately she's dragging an otherwise faithful contented royal away from his family and his duty. There there was a racial narrative. There there is this idea that this women of color has come with her dark magic and cast some spells. All women are accused of affecting US Australia. Early question an element of misogyny hair as well. I think you can separate the women of African heritage from making the women women with career from Megan the activist and making the feminist. These are all things that I think a very threatening to parts of the British press. Because it's not what we're used to seeing being an senior royals now my personal opinion when this relationship first emerged was it was a very positive thing for the royal family because it allowed a new generation of women especially to now relate somebody that level of the royal family. I can't relate to the idea of being expected to give up your work as a woman when you get married. Expect being I speak off. The he's finished speaking allow him to make all the decisions. That's sad to think that's a role model for contemporary society. But in breaking with tradition I think she also the triggered some of the fragility that people have about the royal family represents in this unbroken tradition. They don't want to see change country that sometimes struggles with change. But what about the institution and the establishment is it quixotic naive to hope that perhaps this is a way of forging. A new you modern alternative route for two people who happened to be in the royal family and who seem to want to continue to be faithful to the queen and their duties in one way or another Josh. Can the British establishment handle this once. They've got over their shock of this moment. I'm not sure whether the British establishment can but I think the royal family can pick up the point. Is I think that this statement of principle by the couple could be tremendously expensive Stephen Positive for the royal family. I mean to go down a completely different path. Here we are after brexit. We're supposed to be looking out to the world. How wonderful that? These two young members of the family of God and they're going to go to Canada probably I think after that to America they talk about a period of transition. She is as always swollen. She will never live in America so long as Donald Trump is in charge. So I think that's the reason for her talking about a period of transition it puts an extra little spindle interest into the result in in November. No but the important thing is I think people maybe I'm being optimistic. People will look back on this and and say this is the time the royal family started to wake out. It did address the racist. I mean I don't want to suggest an today William and kate are up in Bradford A multi-racial Labor voting north of eight in the north of England..

"Ads. I do think the importance of these two wings of the Party about how active a president will be in a global environment so Bernie Sanders does does tend to retrench. He doesn't vote for trade wars. He's not for trade agreements doesn't obviously want to see any any presence in Afghanistan. He wants to pull our troops respect. You Know Joe Biden has more of a nuanced take on this. He thinks the trade is a way for the United States to be able to get human rights Human Rights progress in other countries to be able to ensure that we have allies who will march together to ensure progress. You know he thinks that the limited presence maybe Some security patrols should be still in place in the Middle East. So there's there is. There are two world views here and the question for the I wins and four New Hampshire and everybody else who will be voting is what worldview do they agree with in the you know they want our president to take on those sort of retrenchment Frenchman or engaging and I think that's a really valid and important question for the election so turning to you andrew them them because according to the poll that it came out forty six percent of those who watching the debate thought that Vice President former Vice President Biden is way ahead when it comes to foreign policy but to the the point about what Iowans are looking for I mean presumably trade is a big deal in a state like Iowa and you see today president trump even as these impeachment the articles even as the debate is going on is signing phase one of the trade deal with the Chinese and and touting his the economic success his trade success is standing tough against the Chinese on behalf of farmers and others in states like Iowa that how is that going to go down. You think amongst the cocoa is in Iowa. Well I I know I am one Simple individual who would love to understand what's in phase one of disagreement None of us actually know that the president has kept the details of this quite close us to the cough. The other thing that's president has been pretty famous for doing is kicking over the can and tearing up all the China and the China shop and then attempting to get credit for gluing back a piece of the vows that he broke so we need to understand actually a little bit more of what is happening in industry trade deal The truth is is that. There's some arguing that we may not be any better off through this negotiated agreement than we were before the president decided to dude lambasts The Democratic Republic And so one of the things that the the the Republic of China one of the things that I believe we've got to do a better job at its Democrats as reminding our farmers those in the mid west of how much they have suffered under this trade war initiated by. Hi this president How many trillions of dollars in subsidies has come out of the American treasury multiples more than what was done by Washington during the automobile? Uh Automobile Collapse and the collapse of that sector some years ago and so this has not been free. This has not been without paying. It actually has come at great. It costs And I think we deserve to know exactly what we're getting for the pain that was inflicted on so many farmers and families and Middle America and Iowa. Well I hope they will put first and foremost this idea of healthcare and the fact that while Democrats working to expand access and coverage this administration right now is fighting in the supreme cream court to take away protections against discrimination on pre existing conditions and my state of Florida if you are a pregnant woman. It is a pre existing condition. So we've got to make these. He's points very clear very plain to the American people as we enter this election cycle. The president does one thing was says one thing rather and then does another. We've gotTA drive the point home that we're fighting every day for everyday Americans and that's why we deserve to be put back in power so very quickly. Governor Granholm Swing States. Yours is one one of them Michigan. We don't want to say who's up and who's down this Saturday. But how are the candidates faring in the swing states whether it's the reform candidates or the moderate candidates. Well it's an interesting question. Because in Michigan in last the last election last presidential election Bernie Sanders Sanders won over Hillary Clinton in the primary in this election right now Joe Biden is up certainly up over Donald trump but up over the others as as well and so i. It's going to be very very interesting. The reason why Bernie Sanders did so well. Last time was because of this issue that Andrew was just referring to trade. I mean when I was governor because of the loss of manufacturing jobs I used to campaign on Nafta and Kaffa have given us the shaft up because of the way these trade agreements had been enforced. which is not at all and this is why? It's super important for all of these candidates to simply say we. We are not afraid of trade but these trade agreements have to be enforced and labor and environmentalists have to be at the table governor. Grant Home Mayo.

"Aspect to just like not only learning more about the royal family but also just about how they relate to government and how they interact with or how they relate to just uh the british culture in general i feel like i learned a lot more about that whole system and if it is on the fence about whether or not they should check out the crown of course that the holidays are coming up there is always looking for something to being over this holiday break is there anything that you could tell the people that are on the fence about watching the crown i mean i think you need to give it a try regardless of how you feel about the subject matter or this kind of show in general just it it is kind of a groundbreaking show in terms of its budget in terms of it halich how it's put together it is so wellmade and the performances are amazing i think you just need to sort of like see it for yourself it's that kind of show so i definitely recommend just putting on the first episode seeing what you're seeing what you think and really if anything just marvelling at the beach do you have it yeah i mean all of the sets are amazing to really get lost in the world and the acting performance is are all in croatia i don't think there's anybody that and watching this entire series as they all okay well i ate that person you know that's the bad actor in the whole shell like everybody and i and i've said that john lithgow as winston churchill is my personal favorite but everybody really is bringing their yang yeah i never thought that i would see mad smith as anyone but dr who but now he's prince phillip get their interview with robert lemme just imagine again that this podcast is sponsored by the crown at the official companion volume one with his show like the crown and that is based on the real history season one takes place over the course of ten years there is a temptation to go through and go and sort of gugel all of the year.

"Flicked series the crown first of all was wildly popular how bigger role did you play year longtime biography of queen elizabeth how bigger role did you play in in in the program and how much of it is actually real well i've no beat him oldham now for the creator and writer of virtually every episode in series i've known pre to work with him for twelve years i was his consultant on his movie the queen which broke new ground with helen mirren actually winning an oscar didn't she for depicting the queen at the time or the death of of guyana so peter nygh talking on the phone i'm technically called the historical consultant there's a fulltime research team on this to come on joe second question eight to ten fulltime research you go into beat him organs off his it's like a newspaper office there they're the books there the papers everything is true in one sense and then there are invented bits i mean i don't need that people who enjoyed the first series will remember for example the incredible rao in series eight when there's a camera crew training it's it's it's lens on the door of a bungalow in australia expecting that the queen and prince philip to come out to smilin' pose rooms with some koala baz and in fact outcomes prince phillip followed by a tennis racket and tennis shoes and the queen screaming at him until they realize they're being filmed and the queen then goes makes sure apologies the australians who want to keep on filming the royal to a loyally exposes the film but all of that i have just described happened not just goes with we know from that as of action australian phd thesis on that tour which writes a lot about that what we don't know of course is what happened on the other side of the door what provoked the row now that's where the role of invention enters the picture and you know it pizza imagines a row about the between the queen and an and philip revolving around the queen's goodygoody perfection and wanting to win favour with her father and be considered a favorite over moderate but that's just guesswork but that's what dramas all about you have been following queen elizabeth ii for very long time do you do you think that there's one trait.
