Queen Elizabeth thanks Windrush pioneers as national monument unveiled
LONDON – British Queen Elizabeth has sent a message to mark unveiling of the National Windrush Monument at Waterloo Station. In her message on social media, the Queen said, “It gives me pleasure to extend my congratulations on the creation of the National Windrush Monument.” The unveiling at Waterloo Station on Windrush Day serves as a fitting thank you to the Windrush pioneers and their descendants, in recognition of the profound contribution they have made to the United Kingdom over the decades.
“It is my hope that the memorial will serve to inspire present and future generations, and I send you my warmest good wishes on this historic occasion,” the message further reads.
The post was shared with caption, “The monument symbolises the courage, commitment and resilience of the thousands of men, women and children who travelled to the UK from 1948 to 1971 to help rebuild post-war Britain, and celebrates the outstanding contribution of the Windrush Generation to British history.” In the meanwhile, Queen plans for Meghan Markle with fresh move are laid bare. Last year, Her Majesty launched a private funded inquiry against the Duchess of Sussex when a number of royal staffers revealed that they were bullied into leaving their jobs while Meghan was still in UK.
The results of the inquiry have been drawn and Daily Mail notes the Queen has decided to keep them a secret, giving Meghan a leeway in the matter. Expert Daniela Elser, however, notes that this could be a part of a much larger plan. She wrote in News.com.au: “Somewhere in the royal household right now is one of the most contentious documents ever produced for the Queen and a report which will now never see the light of day. “But what might at first look like Team Windsor sensibly tamping down a spark which could reignite hostilities with the rebellious duo is in fact a more loaded and potentially explosive move.” The Sussexes said the allegations were part of “a calculated smear campaign”, and Meghan has consistently and vehemently denied them. Daniela wrote: “Outwardly this looks like the mature play on the part of the Queen here. Why stoke the flames and drag this particular business back into the spotlight? “Better to tidy it away to preserve what is left of the frayed ties between London and Montecito. “But whether intentionally or not, in keeping schtum about whatever conclusions the lawyers have come to, Her Majesty has in fact done her granddaughter-in-law a disservice and damned Meghan.” “The shadows of these claims will now follow her in perpetuity and the bottom line is that both the Palace and Meghan are now permanently trapped in this never-ending story”.
