Inside ‘The Firm’: Understanding The Royal Family | MSNBC 1


The fallout from Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s tell-all interview with Oprah has been non-stop since it first aired. During the interview, the couple repeatedly referred to the Royal family as “The Firm.” It’s a term first attributed to Queen Elizabeth II’s father King George VI. He’s reported to have said “We’re not a family. We’re a firm.” NBC’s Joshua Johnson spoke to Insider’s Deputy Lifestyle Editor Chloe Pantazi about the business behind the monarchy.» Subscribe to MSNBC:

    The Firm is part of the 1%…that’s all that needs to be known.

    • That’s good’ol Yankee arrogance right there. The Queen is our constitutional head of state, the person to which the military swear their allegiance and the person who protects the people from would be dictators.

      and the 1% controls and influences almost everything.

      Don’t sugar coat it, it’s more like 50% and the cold hearted behavior, of the mental health🙄

    The Firm? Why don’t they just call it “The Outfit” and be done with it?

  3. “The Firm” – sounds like a sinister, shadowy, underworld-type company that doesn’t officially exist lol

  4. “The FIRM” was a good book by john Grisham

  5. Gaslighting, big time.

  6. The subtitles are interesting 🤔

    Basically the firm have people like piers morgan on speed dial

  8. “The Firm.” The Nazi.” What’s the difference ? “ Educate Me” Sharon Osborne.

    • As an American it’s clear you do not understand, the British way. Anyway trump says the Nazi we all know that.

  9. Guess what, I just saved a bunch of money on my car insurance.

    The voice that she was never allowed to express within The Firm, is quite able to be heard from here.

      Looks like someone scribbled over it

    • @Chris Barrett He’s happy. He’s got God, a baby girl on the way, New job, a son and a supportive wife. Money can’t buy that

    • Chris Barrett | March 24, 2021 at 8:01 AM | Reply

      @Chez well we can revisit this in two years, my money’s on a divorce

    • @Chris Barrett wishing bad on others won’t make you happier. Take care regardless

    • Chris Barrett | March 25, 2021 at 9:34 AM | Reply

      @Chez you’re right. But then again, im not wishing anything, I’m anticipating divorce based on my incomplete understanding on how marriages tend to fail when your partner, in this case, the commoner Megan, married into a royal family with the sole purpose of exploiting them for Netflix deals and A list status. Megan was a C list nobody before this. I dont think she needs any more sympathy from us common folk. Poor Harry

  11. The prime Minster is answerable to the queen and the queen is answerable to the tabloids and the UK wonder why the rest of the world view them as quite ODD lol I mean their spokespersons are people like lady Colin, the royal rodents and Lawrence fox, and don’t forget Piers Morgan and sharon Osbourne lol who could ask for a bigger parade of clowns

    The Royal family is a corporation worth 88 Billion US dollars.

  13. Didnt we have a revolution to rid ourselves of these people.?

  14. Had The Firm treated Meghan better, I think she and Harry would not have left the UK. Refusing to give her protection or intervening on her behalf when the constant negative, racist tabloid coverage began shows how they really felt about her. They have certainly gone out of their way to protect Prince Andrew, possibly the least deserving of them all. The Firm never truly accepted Meghan. She and Harry did the right thing for themselves and their children.
    I wish them happiness.

      i agree, kathie. i always felt there was more to them leaving than just the media treatment. as bas as that was, had there been more support from the firm and better relations with the family, which are one and the same imo, they would have stayed

  15. That wig on Oprah’s head though….

    Look into the history of the Royal Family and you will FIND mixed blood LINES though OUT

    Expose these people. This should be closed down after Queen dies.

  18. Beth Mercado | March 19, 2021 at 8:45 PM | Reply

    This is all BULL! Lack of respect for the queen and d monarchy.

  19. King George did not separate the business part of the Royal Family from the family. He said,” we are not a family. We are a firm.” Pretty clear to me.

  20. I’m goin a need help getting racism from not correcting a “who made who cry” story in a gossip magazine. To paraphrase Oprah herself “what?”
