To the left in the photo-our perspective. Technically, I think Sally may have been in the next row up.

Meghan may have been looking around, but yeah, I doubt it was to see who was looking at her.

I still can't see her. There is a pretty clear picture of the left section from our perspective. I made my comment after seeing that photo. And really, how is RPO supposed to tap anyone on the shoulder other than the ones on the end? Did they walk over the people in the row behind them?

There is a whole lot that doesn't make sense with her story.

Have you seen the pics? I think Sally provided a pic of herself at Wimbledon to the Daily Fail. She wore a red cardigan and white/black/red dress. I don't see her in the pics.

The most interesting thing about this article is her linking a 2015 article describing the Cambridges doing the exact same thing. Some of the language is word for word used to describe Meghan right down to “What William Wants, William Gets!”

As for this incident? I think it’s very suspicious that his women had an article ready for all the papers about an incident that seemingly can be disproven if one looked hard enough. Chris Ship already questioning her story because details don’t add up. Too much video and photographs from that day to not be able to see this so called encounter.

Sally talked with TMZ. I think she wants 15 min of fame. The media needs to ask her to point out where she was sitting.

ETA: First she said she was in the same row as Meghan. Now she said, "she was sitting in the members box".

The DM story continues to develop:


"Princess Privacy strikes again: Meghan is accused of 'looking childish' after tennis fans were ordered not to take pictures of her at Wimbledon – but Palace insists photo ban was to let her 'engage with people rather than camera phones’"

The DF twisted a palace source's words. The source told the Telegraph, "It’s not unusual for people accompanying Members of the Royal Family at private, or public, events to ask members of the public not to take photographs. It is to enable Members of the Royal Family to engage with people and events.”

And, after all of this, still no photo to prove Sally Jones was even where she claimed to be at.

It's all very simple really. Ask her to point herself out in the photo, and a lot of the details can be verified.

So she is already changing her story? Why am I not surprised. Again I ask, where is the proof? Not like the camera weren’t on her plenty of the match. So they were able to see her RPO talk down to a man a few steps below her but not to a woman several rows over in a box? And she talking to TMZ? Okay. There is a reason people are questioning this because it doesn’t make much sense.

But if it is so easy to verify that the details are wrong why would the paper take it up?

She was taking pictures of Serena who was on the court and Meghan was in the stands and a bodyguard came over to her out of all the people there with cameras taking pictures and told her not to take pictures of Meghan?

Quote:

The article states: "Kensington Palace declined to comment on the controversy today - but a royal source told MailOnline: 'It's not uncommon for personal protection officers accompanying any members of the Royal Family to ask people not to take pictures so they can engage with people and events rather than camera phones'. "

So how did the palace insist that it was a ban to let her engage with people when they had no comment? A 'royal source' is completely different than the palace speaking.

They didn’t expect people to question it? Funny she already altered her story.

That's a good question. Why weren't simple questions we are asking here asked? Any reasonable mind would've checked. I guess facts just aren't that important in their stories.

While baby photos are among @SussexRoyal’s draws, most posts are dedicated to the pair’s work as royals. Each month, in an effort to highlight advocates and organizations focusing on issues such as climate change and mental health awareness, the account rotates the users it follows—a savvy strategy that has driven headlines. The Sussexes’ forward-thinking, cause-oriented approach to social media fits neatly with other ways they are establishing their identity beyond the crown.

This is refreshing news to wake up to. Its a classic example of taking every means available to them to "get the word out" about what they're doing, who they're doing it for and why. People are responding, donating to and supporting their causes and these causes really are the winners at the end of the day.

It also showed me that I'm behind the times on what's what sometimes. Out of all those 25 people listed, only a few names were ones I'd heard of other than Harry and Meghan. Go figure.

Thanks Rena!!

I have to admit I don't know anything whatsoever about lawn bowling other than seeing it played and reading about it in books in period movies and books. Being an American, its very possible that this game is totally new to Meghan and she became curious about the game. I bet everyone there at the Royal Household Bowling Club were very pleasantly surprised that she stopped by.

It's quite popular here in Australia among older Australians. When I was a child growing up in England we had a bowling green quite near our house. It's a skilful game and it's also very soothing to watch it being played. I can remember Diana playing a few times, and she seemed to enjoy it. I hope Meghan pursues an interest in lawn bowls as it could well renew interest in it among younger people.
