True. And, frankly, after Meghan spent a year under near constant attack (with occasional bouts of gaslighting - "but I love my sister!") from Samantha, while her father tacitly condoned the attacks, it's understandable that the relationship with Thomas would be a bit frosty going into the engagement announcement.

Given that there were credible reports that Thomas refused to stop talking to Samantha *about Meghan* during that time, yes, there are huge red flags that would cause a cautious person to decide that a visit from Harry was very ill-advised.

I have to say, when I saw the article and Thomas' claim that he had to speak out because he was seeing daily negative stories about himself.. well, it seemed like the living embodiment of that Twitter meme....

Seriously, who was even talking about him?

Maybe that was the problem?

Without spelling it out...

Hope springs eternal when you love someone, and no doubt Meghan kept hoping her father would ‘straighten up’, but he proved unable. Sad, but it happens.

The discussion about whether the Sussexes can move to California, has been moved to the 'Future Duties, Roles and Responsibilities’ thread.

Andrew Morton who admitted he wasn't able to get anyone besides a bitter ex friend who sold countless videos and photos to the tabloids and her bitter half sister to talk to him?

Yeah, and this was reported ages ago already, when the ex friend sold all her Meghan material to dailymail. Why is it popping up again?

Because in the lack of real news, things from the archives are being dug up again, probably.

Even if this is true, Meghan was in good company in shedding tears for Diana during the funeral. I did it myself, along with hundreds of thousands of other people.

It would be more newsworthy if she hadn't. My daughter was the same age as Meghan then & she cried, as did millions of other people. Diana's work for those less fortunate inspired many young people to do the same.

I suspect because Saturday was the twenty-second anniversary of Diana's death.

Meghan has hired a Hollywood based PR team

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/art...-enlisted.html

I'm not sure about this hire considering the rogues gallery of clients and the Firm's reputarion. Some have decent reps. Then again palace PR botched the "defense" of Andrew's mess so I can see it for now.

This story is highly doubtful. This Sussexes are putting a legit team together under Palace guardianship. It’s just another fake story with the idea of Meghan snubbing the royal family and making it seem like she need to rehabilitate her image. Just a bunch on nonsense.

It's best to ignore EVERYTHING in this misleading and AGAIN factually incorrect article, and just go to the last paragraph:

Buckingham Palace said last night that Meghan and Harry hired Sunshine Sachs to help launch their foundation in the US.

Regarding the PR firm, Dan Wooten just tweeted this:

“The PR and crisis management advice provided by Sunshine Sachs to Meghan has been going on for many months. She also took them on to do PR around her Vogue magazine guest edit. There’s much more to come on this.”

Oh dear! If this is true, this could get a lot worse.

Know what I think? I think we should wait and see how the PR staff they've just hired for the soon to be opened foundation until we actually see them in action and then form an opinion. Just going by "Hollywood" or "American" or any other label just doesn't cut it for me at all.

One thing that stood out for me about that announcement though is that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex's foundation will have a base (or focus) in the US. This tells me that there's probably some really good and extensive projects in the works that haven't been announced yet. I'm looking forward to the "grand opening" and discovering just what those are.

I believe all the royals have the freedom and the right to pick and choose whom they want to work for them in various administrative positions. Harry and Meghan are no different.

Free Advice.

As free advice is often cheap,
I'm reluctant to offer any;
but ,
I'm certain I'm the speech writer
they need.
