Meghan will be back on Sunday. I'm sure Archie will be perfectly content with having Daddy time and with his nanny too. His daily routine won't be disrupted.
You are absolutely right ! Archie won't be left to cope alone ! It won't hurt him and will allow his father plenty of bonding time !

Due to the chosen interviewees on the 60 Minutes segment, the moderators have decided to remove the link to it here and all responses to not provide a further platform for their comments / viewpoints.

Meghan indeed flew to New York for the US Open final:

She reportedly also went to a yoga class in West Village after arriving in New York:

Serena however lost the match in straight sets. Andreescu played like a boss!

A snub?

I was watching the American television coverage of the women's final of the US Open tennis tournament. The Duchess of Sussex and was cheering for Serena Williams, which is fine as they are friends.
Maybe our tv didn't show it, but shouldn't she have congratulated the winner as she is Canadian, a Commonwealth country.

That's a very good point.

She was there as a private citizen attending tennis in the stands. She was not there in any official capacity representing the queen and commonwealth.

I am sure if she actually had a chance to meet the winner, she would have congratulated her on the win.

Disappointed in her choice to fly to another country and just to watch a tennis match.

It was such a beautiful thing to watch a friend take a little time out of her very busy life as a wife, mother and senior royal to support her friend at the US Open. That’s true friendship and a great representation of a sisterhood bond. It didn’t even matter that her friend did not win the match. The love and support is what counted.

It was really silly of folks to take to Twitter and other outlets to accuse Meghan of being a jinx to Serena. I swear a lot of adults on the net act like they never left grade school. Theres too much childish behavior by grown folks on the net, if you ask me.

Also, isn’t it great that Meghan got a well deserved break away from the baby and Harry got some 1o1 time with his son? That’s a good thing.

I definitely agree with you, Dman. I think people tend to forget that high profile royals such as Meghan and Harry are, also have their own personal lives and friends and things they like to do and just because they're in the public eye, they're not going to stop doing what they love, seeing people they love and care about and take time for themselves to just enjoy life without pressure.

I really wonder how those that find fault with every little move Meghan makes would feel if every single move of every single day that *they* made became points to complain about and criticize at every turn.

We need to remember that Meghan is a person first and foremost and her roles she fills are attributes that she has available to her to make her life meaningful to her. She's not out there to please us, pacify us or even entertain us. We just happen to like to watch what she does. At least I do.

I am much more disappointed, that Ellen DeGeneres has visited Little Archie and says, he looks like Prince Harry!
https://edition.cnn.com/2019/09/09/e...aby/index.html

Because I can not say that. I have not really seen him yet.

what's disappointing about this? If Ellen is a friend of Meghan's then it is likely that she would see the baby in private.. and Meg and Harry seem to be making it clear that he is a private individual and they don't want to do a lot of photo appearnaces with him..

I suggest that you read the post once or maybe twice again. All of it. It's a joke.

I think it’s nice that she took the time to go support her friend. She wasn’t just watching a game. She was supporting her friend.

I'm glad she's able to support her friends, maintain them, and be there for her friends for their huge career moments. I'm glad the royal life isn't preventing her from being a loyal, supportive, present friend. This wasn't just a tennis match. It was a huge moment to Serena, and I loved that Meghan was able to travel to support her.

The british public has not seen much of him, either. In the current anti-climate of the royal watcher press it does not help that varous celebrity friends tell their insider tale and defend the couple on every opportunity. Sometimes
'keep quiet' is a better approach but I guess H&M exactly like it like that. Their closeness to celebrity culture is the biggest problem going forward, IMO.

Archie was born not long before the summer season started when the royals all have their downtime. We really didn't get to see much of anyone come to think of it. There really was no occasion for the public to see Archie but that will change come the tour to South Africa. I think we'll get quite a few photos of Archie to please our eyeballs then.
