The British Royal Family is in crisis. Less than two years after marrying Meghan Markle, the brother of the future king has ceased to be royal. And it’s got everything to do with “race.” Even Alt-Lite commentators such as Sargon of Akkad agree that the problem is Meghan Markle’s flawed character. But what Sargon fails to understand is that her type of flawed character is disproportionately associated with mixed black-white race people—exactly as I warned at the time of her wedding to Prince Harry in May 2018: “She’s Trouble”—But So Is He! Evolutionary Psychology Says Meghan and Harry Will Divorce.

Harry and Meghan, now widely mocked as the Prince and “Princess of Woke” [Please America, take Meghan Markle back, By Rod Liddle, Spectator USA, October, 2 2019], have plunged the House of Windsor into what The Sydney Morning Herald has described as its worst catastrophe since the abdication of King Edward VIII in 1936 [Prince Harry’s attempt to protect Meghan will make her a target for hatred, by Bevan Shields, The Sydney Morning Herald, January 9, 2020]. It has been lost on nobody that this abdication was brought about by King Edward’s insisting on marrying a famously self-centred American divorcee, Wallis Simpson.

As has been reported worldwide, Harry and Meghan declared, earlier this month, without bothering to consult Queen Elizabeth, that they wish to “step back” from royal duties. Queen Elizabeth, shocked and “deeply hurt,” called an emergency summit to negotiate some kind of settlement[ “Deeply hurt”: Queen’s warning to Prince Harry, New Zealand Herald, January 13, 2020]. She agreed to allow the couple to spend part of their time in Canada, where Meghan wants to live, while still remaining “tied to the House of Windsor” [Queen agrees to let Harry, Meghan move part time to Canada, Associated Press, by Danica Kirka et al., January 14, 2020]. Prince William, next in line to succeed after his father Prince Charles, and William’s wife, Kate, are also said to feel “let down” and “incredibly hurt” by what has transpired [Prince William ‘let down,’ Duchess Kate ‘incredibly hurt’ by Harry stepping down, report says, by Nate Day, Fox News, January 12, 2020].

As I noted of Meghan back in 2018: “She’s trouble.” She’s selfish, she’s Narcissistic (like Hillary Clinton), she’s unstable. She will spread disorder and heartbreak wherever she steps foot.

Some of this charted in a fascinating article Meghan Markle’s Downfall (by Rebecca Sullivan, Now To Love, January 14, 2020). Her unreasonable behavior has manifested in:

  • Inviting celebrities rather than family to her wedding;
  • Shunning her sickly father.
  • Announcing her pregnancy at Princess Eugenie’s wedding reception and thus upstaging the bride;
  • Moving out of Kensington Palace—seemingly because of “tension” between her and William and Kate;
  • Losing her temper when Queen Elizabeth told her she couldn’t wear a Russian tiara that she liked at her wedding. Apparently Queen Elizabeth told Harry: “Meghan cannot have whatever she wants. She gets what tiara she’s given by me”;
  • Making Kate cry, seemingly by criticising Princess Charlotte’s bridesmaid dress for Meghan’s wedding;
  • Getting Harry to tell William that William wasn’t “rolling out the red carpet for Meghan,” causing a breakdown in the brothers’ relationship.
  • Treating valued members of staff so unreasonably that they resigned, in one case after 17 years serving the Royal family: “Meghan put a lot of demands on her and it ended up with her in tears” wrote a British tabloid of one resignation.
  • Treating Kate’s staff disrespectfully. According to an insider: “Her and Kate fell out when she bollocked Kate’s staff.”
  • Revealing that she “feels sorry” for Kate (and thus humiliating her) and publicly complaining about royal life.
  • Virtue-signalling about Global Warming while frequently taking private jets.

I think it’s fair to conclude that this manipulative woman has taken Prince Harry, a fun-loving, simple army officer, by his Privates and turned him into the hen-pecked Prince of Woke, ruining his relationship with his family in the process, and shaking an institution which—at least in the opinion Sargon of Akkad—holds Britain together.

Needless to say, Leftists who loath Britain’s monarchy and Britain itself, notably Britain’s Opposition Leader Jeremy Corbyn, claim that Markle is a victim of racism; that the Royal Family, the British media, and even the British public don’t accept her because she’s half-black. This accusation has been roundly mocked in the UK [Jeremy Corbyn is accused of talking ‘codswallop’ after aides say he agrees with Prince Harry that Meghan media coverage has ‘racial undertones’, by James Tapsfield , Mail Online, January 15, 2020].

Corbyn’s critics, and Sargon of Akkad, are right. Peoples’ hatred of Meghan is not directly because of her “race.” But a mixed black-white woman, such as Meghan, is more likely to be “trouble” because of her race.

As I demonstrated in my earlier article, mixed black-white race people are more than just the sum of their parts.

Certainly some racial mixing can be positive, because it reduces the likelihood of double doses of harmful mutant genes, meaning that people have better physical and mental health. For example, as Kevin MacDonald has shown in Individualism and the Western Liberal Tradition, the British are a mixture of three ethnicities: Western Hunter Gatherers, Neolithic Farmers and Indo-Europeans. That seems to have worked out OK.

However, problems can arise when the genetic distance between the races is very large, such as between blacks and whites. These mixtures are more likely to be mentally unstable than either of their parents. This manifests in anxiety, in depression, and in heightened negative feelings of anger or hatred. The studies establishing this were recently presented by Danish researcher Emil Kirkegaard [Is miscegenation bad for your kids?, Clear Language, Clear Mind, April 1, 2017].

In addition, other research, not cited by Kirkegaard, has shown that in the US, when compared to Blacks or Whites, people who are Black-White biracial are “stark outliers” when it comes to engaging in “risky and anti-social behavior” [The Plight of Mixed Race Adolescents, by Roland Fry et al., NBER Working Paper, 2008].

This was also previously found when comparing blacks and mixed black-white people [Development and risk behavior among African American, Caucasian, and mixed-race adolescents living in high poverty inner-city neighborhoods, by J. Bolland et al., American Journal of Community Psychology, 2007]. And there is some evidence that black-white biracial children suffer from low self-esteem, something which can lead to anti-social behavior as well[Biracial Identity Development and Recommendations in Therapy, Raushanah Hud-Aleem & Jacqueline Countryman, Psychiatry MMC, 2008].

There are number of reasons of this. As I noted in my earlier article, a mixed-race relationship involves taking a risk—having a child with a person who is culturally and genetically very different. So we would expect the offspring to inherit a propensity for risk-taking.

Extreme outbreeding is also associated with a partly-genetic so-called “fast Life History Strategy” in which you are programed to “live fast, die young” because you live in a plentiful yet unstable ecology. Such people create weak social bonds—consistent with high divorce rates in mixed marriages—and are evolved to an unstable ecology. In such an ecology, you may as well “outbreed” because you could be wiped out instantaneously and someone genetically very different may have some useful adaptation.

Selection for cooperation is heightened in harsh and stable environments but it is low in “fast” ones, so a “fast” strategy is associated with low altruism, poor impulse control and high mental instability. (For a book length treatment see Race, Evolution, and Behavior, by J. Philippe Rushton, 1995.)

But there’s another factor: “outbreeding depression.”

Everyone’s heard of “inbreeding depression”: couples who are genetically too similar, such as cousins, may have genetically unhealthy offspring due to the offspring inheriting double doses of harmful mutant alleles.

However, there’s also “outbreeding depression,” which takes place when people who are very genetically different have children. In doing so, they cause alleles to combine which have never previously combined, or which haven’t done so for many thousands of years. This can have unpredictable–and usually negative, due to the fine-tuned nature of human genetics–results. This is especially true when it comes to complex traits that involve numerous genes working together–“polygenic traits” – such as personality.

The larger the inter-racial gap, the more likely this is to be a problem, explaining why it tends to manifest in the products of black-white relationships. Interestingly, Rushton highlighted evidence that, in White-Asian relationships, couples seem to compensate for being genetically physically dissimilar by being much more genetically mentally similar—on traits such as intelligence and personality—than are White-White couples [Ethnic nationalism, evolutionary psychology and Genetic Similarity Theory, by J. Philippe Rushton, Nations and Nationalism, 2005].

This tendency would reduce outbreeding depression on mental traits. But if it occurs with Black-White couples, the larger genetic distance—as has been highlighted by Frank Salter in his 2006 book On Genetic Interests—is apparently insufficient to prevent significant outbreeding depression on mental traits.

My guess: The Meghan-Harry marriage is falling apart. In my 2018 article, I quoted an expert estimate: “Three years to separation, five or six years to divorce.”

Harry, because of the weaknesses in personality I identified, is obsequiously giving into Meghan in order to hold it together, at least publicly. Queen Elizabeth has given them what they want for same reasons, and because a mixed-race royal marriage ending so quickly would look so bad to the Woke anti-monarchist mob.

But remember that the Queen’s very popular mother—officially known as the “Queen Mother” (1900-2002), the widow of King George VI—intensely disliked black people. She notoriously told courtier Sir Roy Strong, at a formal dinner: “Beware the Blackamoors” [Queen Mother was racist against black people and I had to censor stories about her to protect her from ridicule says leading diarist, by Katie French, Mail Online, June 5, 2017].

Perhaps she should have said, to her great-grandson, “Beware the Half-Blackamoors.”

  1. Excellent and informative article, Mr Welton, especially regarding outbreeding depression. Continue the good work.

  2. Svevlad says:

    It takes a long time to successfully mix two different groups – and only under strict, dangerous conditions that kill of any badness very quickly. It also requires literal mass scale race-mixing.

    We have none of those conditions – modern conditions are pleasant, and there is no miscegenation en masse

  3. Gunga Din says:

    Negroes, even half ones, cause chaos wherever they go. When I see Harry, all I can think of is, what a royal cuck.

  4. Anon[226] • Disclaimer says:

    The royal nigrette is giving Harry what nice girls don’t, simple as that. If we research the last abdication, we find that Wallis Simpson had a sexual hold on her Duke. He had an undersized penis, which was common knowledge to his school mates, and she exploited his kinks. She got to North Island (and hence the exclusive Del Coronado and it’s denizens) by marrying an alcoholic (and soon ditched) Naval officer that had a command of the airfield when it was still a dirt landing strip coexisting with the Army. She was able to parlay her place as a relatively low ranking officer’s wife into the top of the social circle in this way. Whether she met the Duke (or Duck, depending on his mood) at the Del Coronado is debatable, what is not is that he was in the group that made the rounds there, and knew of her reputation as a dominatrix. The rest is sordid history, but the point is that a commoner led a Royal around by his winkie. When we see picture of the latest Duc and Ducette, we notice that casual shots have him in obvious arousal. Can’t hide that with a silk suit. With that in mind, that Hairy Harry consorted with an older and more experienced mulatto becomes more understandable. Half-breeds are well known for the promiscuity of the black, along with the insecurity of being raised with a single mother that obviously had the girl in schools with those of higher socio-economic standards. In a word, she was raised to be a gold-digger, as the only way to keep that lifestyle past high school would be on some white man’s dime. Whatever kink(s) the Prince has, the royal mulatto has found and exploited.

    Once you’ve gone Black, you’re too warped to come back

  5. anonymous[331] • Disclaimer says:

    Certainly some racial mixing can be positive,

    There’s a tendency to verbally confuse and lump together racial with ethnic as the later example given of the British who are an ethnic mixture. Racial mixtures can be found in South America. Quite different as the term ‘genetic distance’ clarifies.
    It’s not just a matter of genetics but of the particular ones carried by those who voluntarily engage in miscegenation, unlike Conquistadors having to pick local women. A lot of the mixers are offbeat types, mentally unstable or otherwise not well regarded, people who aren’t generally the pick of the litter. What can you get when you mix screwballs, losers, mentals and other oddballs? The prince himself is just a dork who liked her looks and bought the package. Mildly psycho women are often attractive at first then the routine wears thin. Canada will probably be temporary.

  7. Markle demonstrates the harm of pretending that face doesn’t matter. It clearly does, and Whites must start taking their own side again.

  8. John12755 says:

    To Disclaimer: This Canadian, and millions more, hope your last sentence is prophetic

  9. I have met several half Blacks-half Whites, all Black Father – White Mother (opposite to Markle). Every single one of them identifies as Black, and are all about being Black. Even their mothers seem to be engaged in the illusion.
    I have always maintained that biracial children are genocide defined. Neither biological parent’s genetic inheritance continues. The result, at best, is a new species, and at worst genetic mayhem. Today’s education of re-written history, also includes re-written genetic inheritance. There can be 11 different species of zebra’s, which are genetically different and between which, most people could not differentiate, but humans are all the same. Of the dozens of species of finches, minor colour or size variations, caused by different genetic combinations, are acceptable, but the genetic variations between humans is “racist”.
    The scale of brainwashing is truly astounding.

  10. Howdy Doody is lucky he got laid at all, and by lucky I mean born a royal.

    Me-Again Darkle sealed his fate, but c’mon, he was never going to be King.

    By the time he got there he’d be fake-ruling the burgeoning British caliphate.

  11. indocon says:

    Why would a half black kid identify as white, what is in it for them when popular culture nonstop demonizes the white side? These days it’s almost the reverse of what the movie soul man depicted.

  12. Is there such a thing as hybrid vigour?

    I have run across a number of English novels from the first half of the nineteenth century which featured a crazy mixed race female from the colonies in the attic.

    It is not widely acknowledged but before the great migration from Europe of the 1830s and 40s a lot of Canadian Indians integrated into settler society and even intermarried with Europeans with the result “white” Canadians are largely a mixed race people. I suspect that when these marriages produced restless and ambitious offspring these people moved to the US (“the land from whose bourne no traveller returns” – Stephen Leacock).

    If a similar movement occurred in the opposite direction with contented and polite half-caste Americans moving to Canada, this would explain the differences in the national character of the two neighbouring countries.

  13. Mr. XYZ says:

    I just want to make a brief point here: I think that the proper basis of comparison for mixed-race based is not monoracial people but rather these mixed-race people’s parents. After all, if people in mixed-race couples have traits that are highly atypical for their race, then it would certainly not be surprising to see the children of these mixed-race couples likewise have traits that are highly atypical in comparison to monoracial people.

  14. Hibernian says:

    Maybe somebody should have warned Thomas Jefferson of the dangers of miscegnation.

    Why does the fact that he likes toothsome teenagers make HRH Prince Andrew ‘pervy’? Why would adding a cuck to his detractors improve the case (such as it is) against him?
    Incidentally, how old was Lily Langtry when the Prince of Wales was porking her? You can be sure that he was dealing with lots of girls of 15 or 16, with nobody calling him ‘pervy’.

  17. orionyx says:

    South Africa provides an interesting human laboratory.
    The old apartheid regime recognized 4 broad categories of race: indigenous Black, White, Coloured and Indian. Strangely, adherence to these categories still persists, and they are still largely endogamous.
    The Coloureds are interesting. They are the descendants largely of Black-White crosses, usually a White father and a Black mother.
    It’s apparent to anyone that on the whole Coloureds are worse in every measure than either of the races from which they are descended. They are the poorest, most shiftless, most drunken, most thievish and most violent of all the races, with the highest rate of illegitimacy, and show least benefit of education. I grant that there are plentiful exceptions and acknowledge that i am painting with a very broad brush, but anyone with half an eye can tell that the real no-go zones in South Africa are inhabited by Coloureds. One wishes it were not so, but one has to accept highly-visible facts.

    They hounded his mother to death. Now he is going to totally fuck them using Megan. This is the biggest disaster to hit the British press ever and they should have realised she would get bolshie because who has not seen a black woman get enraged at what she perceives as being ‘dissed’. Maybe Harry picked her for just that purpose.

    Being foreign she thought the royal family were treated with respect, but the actuality is the British view coverage of the royals as an enjoyable bloodsport. They are the only celebrities that can still be ‘monstered’ with impunity, because they don’t sue. Well Megan is suing the Daily Mail, and leaving the country. She wasn’t going to put up with all the crap that the Murdochs’ (should be in prison for the bugging of phones) vermin inflicted on her inlaws, nor should she because that’s not living.

  19. dearieme says:

    Presumably the federal system in the US would give her a good chance of jurisdiction-shopping for her divorce. Is the same true of Canada?

    If Harry were sensible (ha, ha) he’d establish a base in Scotland and divorce her in the Scottish courts. But he’ll mess it up, the poor sap.

    One thing I don’t know: why did he leave the army? He seemed to love it.

  20. anarchyst says:

    You are absolutely correct, but there’s more.

    Not only are there genetic differences but from a medical standpoint, “mixed-race” individuals have an extremely difficult time if they are in need of organ transplants. It is almost impossible to find suitable, compatible transplant organs for mixed-race individuals.

    Resistance against diseases is also a factor in race. The black African races have a higher resistance to malaria, unlike those of other races. “Sickle-cell” disease, while difficult to deal with, has been proven to be a “barrier” to the acquisition of malaria–a natural defense against malaria.

    No matter the “brainwashing” about racial “differences” and the claims that “there are no differences between the races” can and has been proven false. There are monumental differences between the races, but in today’s hyper-charged climate, it can be difficult to state FACTS, even in academia…

  21. Hail says: • Website

    Steve Sailer commenter Old Palo Altan predicted, in Dec. 2019, that Harry would abdicate before the year 2020 was out; amazingly, it happened already in Jan. 2020.

    A royal portrait last year, allegedly lightly photoshopped for effect:

    This was such a bad idea that it will seem to future generations as an obviously terrible idea from the beginning; Harry’s life timeline bear the real hallmarks of a tragic arc, rise and fall.

    FWIW, Meghan Markle is likely a little over 35% Subsaharan; the rest of her bio is equally troubling:

    July 2016: Harry is set up on a blind date with mulatta actress Meghan Markle [b. Aug. 1981; divorced, ex-husband a Jewish film producer; Markle is of Hollywood origin both in childhood and adulthood; by ancestry, 35%+? Subsaharan]; the relationship was public knowledge by late 2016; engagement announced in Nov. 2017;
    2016: Harry begins saying he
    May 2018: Harry–Markle Wedding;
    May 6, 2019: Birth of son, Archie;
    2019: Meghan Markle begins causing problems in royal family, complains of racism

    Hollywood origin; left-wing Jewish movie producer husband.

  23. anastasia says:

    Harry spoke of his love of Great Britain, his love of living there, of his willingness to fulfill his royal role without remuneration, the said publicly, “I had no other option.”

    Further, we KNOW that this deal was being worked on months ago. The queen was not “shocked” by his announcement. It may even have been her idea.

    Appears he wanted something the royal family could not give him, so months ago, they worked out a deal. And now he is leaving town “because he had no other option.” Having no other option, does not sound like he was the one who wanted to leave.

    Months ago? What happened months ago? The baby was born. The baby was born n May 2019, and that is when the trouble started. That is when the deal started to be worked on.

    There is a connection between the birth of this baby, something happening concerning this baby, and their leaving town “because of no other option” and giving up their royal roles, even though Harry agreed to fulfill them without remuneration.

    No one is making the proper connections here.

    This was not a sudden announcement over which the Queen was “shocked” and crestfallen. This was a deal that was being worked on months ago, and the only thing that happened months ago was the birth of this baby.

    That is where everyone should be looking. They should be looking to find out what was going on concerning this baby.

  24. And for those who gaga over the revolutionary war —- just a reminder you are gaga
    over rejecting all things monarchy — Despite my promonarchy leanings, even I understand that despite my own views – this is family business and none of my own. And the woman who blew the led off of that standard of breaking open the royal family faithfulness to privacy —

    She was a white woman.

    I side largely with the concerns expressed by the Queen —

    However, there’s lot on nonsensical psychiatric speculation. Do children of mixed parentage experience some unique depressive experience — sure. Because of the societal constructions regarding skin color.

    Human beings experience varies types of depression — as a general rule with varying degrees of impact on their relations.


    And good greif, apparently the Princess Diana experience has taught us nothing —-

    That members of the royal staff are again breaking i n their duty to protect the royal family by engaging in revelations with members of the press . . .

    It is not as if we haven’t seen this before.

    It’s been remarkable for years that a fraudulent claim that DNA proves him to be Charles’ son is not held up to ridicule. Take a look at the two of them, or at Harry and his supposed brother William.

    White men that prefer going to bed at an early hour will never get along with a black wife. Ghettos become alive after midnight and sleep time is at sunrise. Black ladies also become alive after midnight and would never accept a husband who is asleep at early hours. White husbands have no choice but to let their black wives out for a night of partying, and expect her return at sunrise. Whites require 6-8 hours of sleep, blacks need only 2-5 to feel fully rested.

    ‘They are the descendants largely of Black-White crosses, ‘

    They are actually mostly crosses between White Dutch and Kosian natives/imported Malay slaves from before the time most bantus came south. Yes they are very violent- they have a higher iq than blacks which makes them able to lust after material things but not able to compete and they fit squarely in the iq ranges for criminals for this reason. The south african prison gangs- the numbers-were ruled by the coloreds for this reason.

    You are right in saying they are very deracinated also- they cannot fit into the White man’s world but lack traditional African culture to anchor them.

    Another problem is that they have been doubly disadvantaged- discriminated against under aparthied they are not black enough under black rule and do not qualify fot black economic empowerment etc.

    They are considered outcasts by White and Black alike and the cape flats area is very dangerous indeed.
