She looked lovely, and they look happy.
It’s not easy living in a goldfish bowl, no matter how ornately decorated, and I don’t envy her.
She is not Diana, as some media have likened her to, neither is she another Kate.
She is however the next generation of Royals and will make her own mark.
I seem to be having a right go at news headlines today, but I am sick and tired of seeing articles about her disgruntled family, her father in particular (link).
His paparazzi wedding suit shoot (staged)
His heart attack and heart surgery (rumoured as doubtful and used as a ‘plausible excuse’ not to give his daughter away)
His TV and newspaper interviews, for which he got paid handsomely!
When will these headline grabbing leeches realise that they are not entitled to a bean. I swear they were all expecting to be given titles or property because “the girl done good”.
It might be seen as hypocritical as I know nothing about her or her family apart from what I read or hear in the media, but quite honestly, they should be ashamed of themselves.
If I were her, I would not only be deeply hurt, but would like to put distance between myself and them out of embarrassment more than anything else.
There has been mention of her taking a solo trip to visit friends and family in the US.
A security nightmare, and who’s to say that her friends won’t be lining up photographers and reporters as they get ready to sell their stories to the tabloids for a quick buck and recognition.
Sure I’m cynical, the Markle family have enhanced it in this instance.
Meghan has indeed had to give up a lot to marry Prince Harry, but to me, if she now had to give up contact with a family like hers, it’s not a hardship. By their actions and accusations in such a public way, they have lost all street cred and the sympathy vote as far as I’m concerned.
Incidentally, has anyone heard a peep out of her mother since the Big Day?
No. That lady has dignity and respect for her daughter’s position, and has gone quietly back to her life, but I bet Meghan is still in close contact with her.
And that probably pisses everyone else off too.
