I'm not a fan of any quack medicines, therapies or spiritual gobbledegook. If something hasn't been proven to work by rigorous scientific testing, it's just a placebo IMO. However, the Queen & Prince Charles love their alternative potions & Diana was into all sorts of airy-fairy nonsense so Harry & Meghan are just doing what comes naturally in that family.

Stores such as that can never be discounted. They are repositories for all manner of interesting "thneeds" such as truly amazing oils that can refresh your home without having to plug it in or add batteries to spray artificial smelly chemically scented odours that bear no relation to the natural odour it proclaims itself to be.

But best of all they have things like lavender eye bags to shut out the light and give gentle wafts of lavender. Terrific for migraines, headaches or when you add ear buds just to shut out the world and relax.

I'd love to spend a few hours browsing through that store myself.
Me, too. But I understand that this is not something that has to do with Harry and Meghan's official work and thus should be treated as private. But I bet Meghan's interest in these things is something that helped her adapting to the way Charles and possibly Harry as well think. Just like they all seem to love walks through nature. I bet Meghan loves to discover the magnificense of Scotland's nature on the Balmoral estate, for she seems a country girl by heart. Hence why the trip to Botswana with Harry was so successful - I don't see her as pampered princess but rather a woman who loves to go on discoveries with her adventurer husband! Just like Catherine felt so comfortable in the Welsh countryside and now in Norfolk. Both truly daughter-in-laws of Charles' and Camilla's heart.

For some reason I cannot enter page 16 of this thread. I could post to it, but when I click the page or "next" on page 15, it always reverts back to page 15????

I took a look at the store's website, and it looks like most of what they sell is really just very nice, organic skin products with unique scents. It seems like the kind of place where you could find lovely things without needing to buy into the "alternative care" aspects of the store's ethos. Similarly, while their services include a few "spiritual" options, it mostly just seems like very targeted types of massages and such in a quite private spa atmosphere.

I love natural products (& use them myself) & a trip to the spa is one of my favourite treats. It's just unproven medicine & spiritual stuff I discount as nonsense.

Thanks for the information about the shop, which sounds much more appealing than than the way it was reported.

Those shops are very common in Southern California. I've been shopping in them for many years. The products are usually very high quality and the prices reasonable.

I was pleased to see she's introducing Harry to alternative products and the benefits they can bring. Keeping an open mind to things you are not accustomed to is a good thing! (Though I'm guessing Harry is open-minded since Diana was a fan of these things as well.)

Many of the British Royal family use homeopathic medicine, including Her Majesty. Alternative products would not be strange to Harry.

That had slipped my mind when I made the post.

Hmmm.... you suppose Her Majesty burns a "Windsor Castle Library" candle when she curls up with a good book at Buck House?

I think this kind of store conjures up witch doctors or wiccas to some people. Star charts, chanting, herbs and all types of odd things

In reality natural oils, creams and teas are becoming more and more common. Just natural ways to deal with health issues and pregnancy pains. Health spas use them all of the time.

Prince Charles knows something about it Or at least his estate does. You will find Highgrove sells all types of natural products. They have soaps, lotions, sprays and candles that are all organic and meant to help.

I personally love my oils, teas and holistic skin care treatments. Maybe its "New Age" but I've seen a big difference and I was an extreme skeptic.

But I draw the line at star charts or any of that lol.

They released a pic of them tagging a bull elephant in Botswana from the summer before the engagement

"HEIR BIG SPENDER Meghan Markle and Prince Harry went on a three-night £33k ‘babymoon’ with romantic walks and cosy dinners."

Emily Andrews is sure having fun with this one on Twitter.

https://www.thesun.co.uk/news/879517...arry-babymoon/

Meghan and Harry splash out £33,000 on three-night 'babymoon' holiday in luxury hotel before she gives birth (well, one does need a break from one's palace, Cotswold bolthole and Windsor cottage)

So Emily Andrews is paying for it, I presume. And does she have tons of fun when other members of the royal family have breaks away, in Mustique and France and Switzerland for example?

The fact that Emily is making fun of people donating to charity says a lot. You can't want respect if you are using a campaign that is helping a lot of people to troll.

Also why does she care that Harry spent his money on his wife? Did she want to join in?

Not enough of a clickbait these days.

They sure had a busy weekend. We are to believe that they were in London late Friday night and moved to Windsor as well as spent a weekend away at this estate?

Ok Emily!

But all that aside, what a beautiful property!
