Buried in a Shinan Govani article about the Hello! Canada Editor in Chief's preparations for the royal wedding is a really interesting little nugget:
“What was really eye-opening,” Eastwood reflects, thinking back to the early days of their then-secret romance, “was seeing how much a whole community can go on lockdown. We knew how serious it was when, all of a sudden … people we used to talk to all the time (friends and colleagues of Markle) wouldn’t even return a Facebook message. It was probably advised against doing so in some quarters.”
It strikes me that, for royal reporters, what's not said (and who's *not* talking) is also a huge clue to whether a story has legs or not. I remember when the news of Harry and Meghan first hit and the press was so much more certain than the average royal watcher's skepticism. This quote may provide some context for that disparity.

The discussion of the recent CNN article on Meghan's race has been moved to the British Royal Family: Race and Racism thread, which remains closed.

Further discussion will be deleted.
