Emily Andrws complained about the fact that they has been told by KP that Harry would travel straight back to London, but I honestly guessed he was going to visit Meghan, so I see no surprise here...

Harry basically threw his staff under the bus. The palace told the press tour at the pre tour briefing that Harry was flying directly back to London when asked. So either KP lied then or Harry changed his plan during the tour which then makes it seem like KP lied.

Its quite possible that J]Harry changed his plans at the last minute, and I don't see why that is getting the Press excited.

Harry has RPOs that goes everywhere he goes. The security plan has to be thought out before he goes anywhere. He didn't just get to the Barbados airports and go hey RPO 1 and 2 - I'm not getting on this British Air flight with the rest of my staff but we are going to Toronto for a day. I will buy you some Parkas and earplugs at the Toronto Airport.

It's possible that he got halfway through the tour and decided to change his plans and his staff just opted not to update the press.

Either way, I think the most interesting question is how this will affect perceptions of the tour. I've found with the Cambridge's tours this year, the tone of the coverage has been very positive right up til the point that the press gets pissed off about something (the walk up to the monastery in Bhutan, for example) and then, suddenly, the tour is transformed into "the most boring tour ever".

So it'll be interesting to see if the tone of how the reporters talk about the tour changes now that Harry and the KP staff have annoyed them.

Don't know if it's true. Then again, who wouldn't want to see ones girlfriend, get refreshed and then head back to work. They been apart for a good minute due to this tour. Private matter.

The press can't wait to see them together.

Lol, true the press can get ticked off and turn the tour PR around.

I'm not suggesting he got to the airport and changed his plans, but the change could have happened prior to that. As lomg as security was not compromised, I don't see what the issue was.

I think Harry changed his plans and decided to go to Toronto for a few hours and members of his entourage didn't bother to inform the Press. It's not a hanging offence to want to go and see your girlfriend and Harry might not have wanted a stream of media following his every move in Toronto!
The Presx are very annoyed at the moment about their luggage and some chaotic arrangements to do with the local airlines. They are all dribbling back to London now.

There's no problem, but the press were told he was going straight home after the tour. They don't like finding out he made a last unknown change and went to Toronto to see Meghan. They wanted an official heads up.

If Harry's managed to fool the paps to spend a little time with his girlfriend, then good for him. He's allowed to have private time and he'll be back on duty soon enough.

Richard Palmer is throwing a rant down as we speak. Accusing KP of misleading the press.

There is no news about him having arrived back in London from his tour. I think he is in Canada! And he could have contacted Wills to fill in for him in this next engagement so he could visit Meghan.

I might be missing something, but I don't see the big deal. He's on his free time, right? If he changed his mind at some point, and decided to visit Meghan, it's quite understandable, that he wouldn't inform the press about it. Is he dutybound to keep tge press informed about his whereabouts at all times?

I don't get it either. Lets say that maybe Harry did make plans in advance but did not tell all his people so they could have deniability. The person who answered the question was telling the truth.

Quite frankly I just don't get how Harry dating Meghan is a big deal. It's not a scandal and Meghan is no more suitable or unsuitable than any of the current royal family. Other than posting a bananna??!! she has not done anything wrong. Smiling at the paps? Diana posed for the paps wearing a see through skirt, she even answered questions. Call me when we get toe sucking pics, or Harry wishing he was a tampon. Meghangate is NOTHING compared to real royal scandal. Just shaking my head over all this commotion.

When I stop and think about it, when it comes to the media, the only thing they needed to be informed of is Harry's official itinerary for the Caribbean tour. The press was there and they covered it and that is all that was needed to be done.

Harry's private time is his own and other than his family and his protection officers, he is not obligated to inform anyone else of his plans or his whereabouts.

Then KP shouldn't have answered the initial question about going straight back to London in the pre tour briefing. Then per Richard Palmer's tweet reaffirmed the straight to London 30 minutes before Harry's charter left Guyana.

True, I think the KP person should of said it was his private time, but non answers would be misconstrued as confirming that he was going to Toronto.

I posted this same sentiment when "Meghangate" (thanks I love it!) first broke.

This young lady is quite tame to some of her recently married in "Royal" peers.

Call me crazy but I actually kind of feel bad because some of the reporters that went along on the tour were still stuck there as of last night and now I'm feeling maybe that was done purposely so they couldn't find out his plans...Oh my goodness,he really wanted to see Meghan.Im all for this relationship but to see the reporters still posting about waiting on a plane to get home to London makes me feel really bad when harry just soared out of there! I hope they are finally home though...
