When asking panelists questions from the audience, BBC’s Question Time presumably ranks the questions in the order of their importance. Today’s first question was about prince Harry and Meghan Markle — how they intend to escape from the hardships of the royal life to the other side of the pond. It’s perfectly absurd that the inconsequential private life of a bunch of ceremonial stooges should grip the attention of the audience stronger than, say, the conflict in the Middle East (second question) or the looming departure from the European Union, but there we are. The seriousness with which so many Brits treat the news about the royalties mystifies me. Sure, they are fun to follow in the episodes of The Crown — but other that that?
