Brad Johnson on the Royal Skip to USA

 

 


a headline the other day which confirmed
00:09
a lot of people’s suspicions that the
00:13
wayward Royals were just using Canada as
00:17
a pit stop between the UK and the US and
00:22
I guess they had to accelerate their
00:24
plans because of kovat what do we know
00:26
about that yes it’s kind of an
00:30
interesting little thing as I mentioned
00:32
this is our second one I believe on
00:34
Prince Harry and Megan
00:39
kind of watching their behavior and sort
00:42
of analyzing what they’re doing and
00:43
making predictions towards it but you in
00:47
discussion with you long ago you had
00:49
predicted that that Canada was the
00:52
stepping stone and and they were on
00:54
their way to the United States and I
00:56
think I think this was actually provoked
00:59
by the cost of security and once they
01:03
actually resigned which hit and we’re
01:06
going to be responsible for their own
01:08
security and then Canada refused to pay
01:12
for it I think that sparked the actual
01:14
decision to move I mean I agree with you
01:17
that was something intended along so
01:18
they’ve already begun and this is
01:21
something I said when we talked about
01:22
this before is that these guys are
01:24
headed this is this is a train wreck
01:26
waiting to happen they’re headed towards
01:27
a brick wall and are completely clueless
01:30
as to as to what’s coming so they that
01:33
was their first kind of little tiny dose
01:36
of reality and I’m sure that it was
01:38
something that they were maybe a little
01:41
surprised with or I’m not sure what the
01:43
reaction would have been but there must
01:45
have been some level of discomfort from
01:48
their perspective with the situation as
01:50
it was at any rate they picked up moved
01:52
to Los Angeles and kind of tone-deaf and
01:55
what they’re doing because now what
01:57
they’re out doing and they’re getting
01:58
some criticism in the press over this
02:00
not much because they’re darlings of the
02:02
left but they’re out shopping for
02:05
mansions so they’re driving all over LA
02:07
area shopping for mansions well
02:09
everybody is supposed to be hunkered
02:10
down hiding from Cove at 19 so it’s kind
02:14
of a I don’t know it just shows the
02:17
little a little bit of that ivory tower
02:18
attitude and then also when they moved
02:21
the United States now what was said was
02:24
that they publicly said well we would
02:25
never ask for help from the US
02:27
government certainly not from Trump but
02:29
what went on behind the scenes is there
02:31
were some feelers put out about their
02:34
security problems and wondered if the
02:35
USG would help they were told no and
02:38
then Trump made a comment about you know
02:39
these guys wanted security we told them
02:41
no there Bevo no that didn’t happen we
02:43
would never ask and they didn’t
02:45
technically ask so they’re not lying but
02:48
they did put out feelers like I said to
02:50
just check the but I guess wet your
02:52
thumb and stick it up in the air
02:53
see which way the wind was blowing on
02:54
the issue security so what has happened
02:56
in is their dad who’s Prince Charles
02:59
Diane’s husband that Diane the passed
03:02
away and will be next to rise to the
03:06
throne
03:07
he’s footing the bill for him and I
03:09
believe that the amount that he said was
03:11
he was putting up was 2.7 million and so
03:13
you can see then we can now put an aspen
03:16
on the price tag of what their security
03:18
cost so call it 3 million rounded up
03:20
then just to say there’s always going to
03:22
be some unexpected expenses so they were
03:25
suddenly faced with the reality of this
03:26
3 million dollar bill now Prince Harry’s
03:29
wealth Megan I don’t believe is
03:31
personally wealthy I don’t think her
03:32
family’s poor but not wealthy to the to
03:35
the scale and the Prince Harry’s
03:40
personal wealth is estimated at around
03:42
30 million so something where he’s
03:45
spending 3 million a year for his
03:46
security with little to no income coming
03:48
in is kind of untenable for them they
03:50
pretty quickly go through their money
03:52
because it would also have to have money
03:53
to spend they’re also going to buy a
03:55
very expensive house la is not cheap and
03:57
for the type of house that they’re in a
03:59
demand they’re probably going to spend a
04:01
sizable chunk out of his 30 million just
04:03
buying a house I mean I wouldn’t be at
04:05
all surprised to see them they you know
04:07
five ten million dollars into a house
04:09
maybe more so now they’re suddenly
04:12
they’re starting to come to face with
04:13
this I mean there may be a little
04:15
glimmer of well gee maybe this isn’t
04:17
going to be a smooth trade ride down
04:18
these tracks and but they have confirmed
04:21
to the press that what they’re planning
04:22
on doing is she’s going to get back into
04:26
the acting circuit of which she has done
04:28
a small voice only part of a Disney
04:31
cartoon an animated type movie where
04:35
she’s a voice for that and also he’s
04:37
then saying now he’s going to be on the
04:40
speaking circuit circuit on the
04:42
six-figure per speech price tag to go
04:46
with these now this is something we
04:47
speculated out about before that that’s
04:49
exactly what they would do end up in LA
04:52
and she would try to get back into
04:54
acting and he would try to be a speaking
04:55
on the circuit now the poor guy I mean I
04:59
hate to be critical of somebody who’s
05:01
headed to trouble but he’s just not the
05:03
brightest bulb not the best speaker
05:06
and it really doesn’t have a great deal
05:09
of life experience having lived in an
05:11
ivory tower all his life so there’ll be
05:13
some interest in him initially as I had
05:17
discussed before on this speaking
05:19
circuit and I’m sure that he’ll get a
05:21
few gigs where he’s out there speaking
05:22
for a while and it may be enough to
05:24
carry him through a year and there’ll be
05:26
some interest in her for like this
05:28
Disney thing and little programs like
05:30
that but she’s not gonna hit it big as
05:31
an actress he’s not going to hit it big
05:33
as a speaker though this is those things
05:36
aren’t in the cards for these people and
05:37
I think they’re really truly completely
05:40
oblivious to the fact that this isn’t
05:42
just gonna all fall into their lap
05:44
they’ve been used to I think especially
05:46
him he’s been used to kind of just these
05:48
you know being part of a family the
05:51
royal family that’s a multi-billionaire
05:52
family that has a lot of things that
05:54
aren’t taxed he’s just not used to these
05:57
sorts of problems hasn’t paid taxes
05:59
hasn’t had to pay for his own security
06:00
so three million dollars a year daddy’s
06:04
paying for it okay that’s good but
06:06
buying a mansion there’s still a lot of
06:07
expenses they’re not gonna live an
06:09
impoverished lifestyle so are they gonna
06:11
be able to afford it and for how long so
06:13
as I said this is one of those things
06:15
that a year from now hopefully we won’t
06:18
be talking about it but it a year from
06:20
now I think they’re going to be starting
06:23
to look at the situation and probably
06:26
thinking you know gee it’s a good thing
06:29
we left a back door opened to go back to
06:31
the royal family or darn wish me to left
06:34
that back door up or to go back to the
06:35
real family I would say five years at
06:37
the most four it couldn’t happen to a
06:39
nicer couple thank you very much for the
06:41
update Fred Johnson
