While Harry himself is not beyond redemption, according to Robert Oulds and Niall McCrae, they accuse his wife of initiating a campaign to reshape the Royal Family in accordance with her own “woke” system of values – and of “looking down” on the likes of the Queen, Prince William and Kate, the Duchess of Cambridge. Mr Oulds, director of the Bruges Group, and Mr McCrae, a senior lecturer in mental health at Kings College London, have outlined their ideas in a new book published last week, ‘Moralitis: A Cultural Virus’.
Meghan has turned Harry from a soldier serving his country into a woke warrior
In it, they identify “moralitis” as “a contagion spread by memes rather than microbes” whereby “woke ideology mutates and becomes more extreme”.
Mr Oulds told Express.co.uk: “Meghan has turned Harry from a soldier serving his country into a woke warrior.
“The Royal Family and the Monarchy is a key British institution, a crucial part of both our unwritten constitution and our national identity.

“It is no surprise that in the Meghan versus the Queen debate, Republicans side with the one that thinks she knows best.”

“A prince who acted like one of the lads. But perhaps his mind has been too addled with woke subversion.”
Since meeting the former Suits actress, the 35-year-old Prince had changed dramatically, Mr Oulds said.
Meghan’s impact has been clear, not least in a speech which her husband delivered during WE Day UK last year.
A timeline of Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s relationship
Royal commentator Richard Fitzwilliams, former editor of International Who’s Who, said Harry had “undoubtedly been influenced” by Meghan.

“She married into the Royal Family and immediately began to undermine this bastion of British heritage.

“The House of Windsor would need a complete overhaul to accommodate Meghan’s superior outlook on the world.”
As for Harry, Mr Oulds added: “All is not lost.
He should read Moralitis: a Cultural Virus.”
