Some people’s quest for freedom is inborn. Put them in a cage made of gold, garnish them with the choicest of royalty, they will break free someday and find expression.
This is what we find running in the blood stream of Prince Harry in this Harry-Meghan story.
In 1980, 19-year-old Diana Spencer said ‘yes I do’ to the charming Prince Charles and got married into the British Royal Family. But the day she moved into the the Royal Family house, her newly-acquired personal policeman said to her:
“This is the last night of your freedom, ever, in the rest of your life. So make the most of it”.
Those words preempted her shackled life in the Royal Family. A day before her wedding, she told her sister “I can’t do this.” As she walked out of the royal carriage on her wedding day, she felt like a lamb to the slaughter.
Not too long after they tied the marital knot, Prince Charles allegedly began to cheat on her with her own sister Camella. Devastated, Princess Diana was drown in depression and several times attempted suicide when she cut her wrist and even threw herself on the floor when she was pregnant.

With so much incompatibilities, the marriage hit the rock when both Charles and Diana went their separate ways in 1992.
The British press took side with Charles and called Diana all sorts of names but she was undaunted in her quest for love and freedom. She began to travel round the world touching lives through charity. Though she found the freedom she craved, her life was hunted.
Princess Diana knew her life was in the line as she began to fear been assassinated. In a letter dated October 1996 and written to Burrell, “This phase in my life is the most dangerous. They are planning an accident in my car.”
The sad day broke on August 31, 1997. Princess Diana was involved in a ghastly auto crash when on vacation with her new lover, Dodi son of multi billionaire owner of Harrods, Mohammed al Fayed, in Paris.

And the statement made by the Queen on hearing the news of the accident and Diana’s death was suspicious. Her first comment, upon being told of Diana’s death, was to say: ‘Someone must have greased the brakes,’
Diana’s younger son Harry has since grown into a man and seems to have the same instinct in him, -the quest for freedom. Blood, they say, is ticker than water. Meghan has only made that dream come true. We don’t know how long their union will last but we are certain one something; Harry has found his freedom. And we pray the freedom lasts.
This is the only way Harry could avenge his mother’s death.

Breaking: Ronaldo To Join Al-Nassr For €200m euros per year
Cristiano Ronaldo is close to agreeing on a mega transfer to Saudi Arabian outfit All-Nassr.
In a report published by Spanish publication Marca, Ronaldo has been offered a two-year contract by Al-Nassr, who are able to sign the 37-year-old on a free transfer following his departure from Manchester United.
CR7 left United by mutual consent this month
Available on a free transfer.
Marca reports that Ronaldo has also attracted interest from MLS, but he is very conscious of picking up the most lucrative wage possible if calling time on his illustrious career in Europe.
Al-Nassr are willing to pay the Portugal forward a grand total of €400 million if he agrees on a deal to play for the Saudi Arabian club until 2025.
Ronaldo’s second spell at Old Trafford came to an acrimonious end earlier this month as United announced the termination of his contract by mutual consent. The decision was made following the five-time Ballon d’Or winner’s controversial interview with Piers Morgan, during which he accused the club of betraying him and admitted to having no respect for head coach Erik ten Hag
Should Ronaldo indeed end up joining Al-Nassr, he will link up with another former Premier League star in David Ospina, who played in goal for Arsenal between 2014 and 2019.
The striker is currently starring for Portugal at the 2022 World Cup, and will hope for another start when Fernando Santos’ side wrap up their group stage campaign against South Korea on Friday.
