OPINION: In retrospect Julie Payette was the perfect representative for the Royal Family

By: Martin Day, Royal Observer

Earlier this year, when it was revealed that was an abusive boss who treated people terribly, I was one of the loudest voices calling for her to resign. But in the wake of what we know about the royal , I now think she was the best emissary they’ve ever had.

Think about it! Harassing people to the point they could no longer handle their environment and had to leave for their own . Did I just describe the independent review of conditions at Rideau Hall, or ’s description of her experience living amongst the Royals?

Sure Payette and her chief of staff regularly reducing employees to tears sounded bad at the time. But now we know she was just trying to bring a little of the House of Windsor culture to Ottawa. It was method acting, like when De Niro gained all that weight for Raging Bull or Jared Leto did… whatever it was that made his version of the Joker like that.

Maybe even told Payette to give her staff ‘the ol ‘Markle treatment.’ How else do you explain the similarities between Payette throwing tantrums in her office and the Royals throwing tantrums in the press every time Meghan dares speak.

Oh man, she also killed someone in a traffic accident just like they did! Ok now this is getting freaky. If only Payette was also married to her and relatives with Nazis the parallels would be off the charts.

At the end of the day, I’m not saying we should hire Payette back. That ship has sailed. What I am saying is this: make her our ambassador to the so she can live among her own kind. And then make Meghan Markle our Governor General.
