Well, that's a perfectly valid stance (and I would do the same), but you have to know the consequences then: Honor vs peace in the family.

Well, I don't think there will ever be peace in this family, but a payout upon signing an NDA or something similar with penalties such as having to give the money back if they spill the beans might have worked. Major corporations use them all the time, they can be fairly watertight.

Maybe that was the all-night lawyer sessions Harry spoke about in the letter to the media. Maybe they wanted too much money and couldn't come to an agreement. Sorry for the speculation, just thinking out loud.

Not sure if the DF can be believed here yet I just read that Meghan's mother quit her job in LA and is wanting to open her own practice of taking care of the elderly patients. I am no good at posting links so anyone that has read this also please help out on this. Not a computer savvy person at all.

I feel very sorry for Meghan to have to deal with all of this - there's been months of negative publicity from her half siblings and now this happens with her father only days before her wedding.

I'm very skeptical about the heart attack story. I seriously question her father's judgment.

I think it's more likely a result of embarrassment and I get the sense he wasn't comfortable attending the wedding in the first place. (If he didn't want to go, he should have told her weeks ago so KP could have released it rather than letting it blow up . I can understand her disappointment, his solution to being embarrassed is to hurt his daughter more and talk to more of the tabloid press. I would never hurt my child in such a thoughtless and public manner.

Weddings and funerals seem to bring out the dysfunction in some people. (I experienced this with only one family member, unfortunately Meghan has so many of them.)

She’s going into solo practice. What’s the big deal. She can control who she interacts with and who has access to her. Smart move.

I imagine reporters show up at her job all the time, which can’t be fun for her coworkers. With her own business, maybe she can work from home, thus avoid subjecting her coworkers to harassment.

The nephews haven't spoken to her in 10 years and the ex sister in law in 20! It's shameful how this family has exploited this connection.

Though I will admit seeing them tote their bags from Heathrow reminded me how far the arrival gate is SO FAR from everything else! That was a trek!
10 and 20 years? Yeah, they definitely don't know her, or her life. I see why the nephews and ex SIL are clamoring for the camera (they want to promote their weed business), but it's odd that GMB thinks they'll get anything out of having them on. Like you said, its not like they have anything substantial to contribute. The show would be better off hiring a few legit correspondents to discuss the wedding.

And I agree that it's shameful how all of these folks are exploiting Meghan.

I don't for one second buy that Sam is responsible for the pap photos. It seems she's just trying to insert herself into the story. Thomas Markle told TMZ that the pap agency contacted him and offered him money and he decided to do it because he figured there was no harm in it. Plus he thought it would help his image. That contradicts Sam's story in which she claims she came up with the idea and that the photos weren't staged for money.

But even if the story was true and Sam came up with the idea, Thomas Markle is a grown man. No one can make him do anything...he is the one responsible for his actions. He knew that KP went to bat for him, yet he took money for the photos anyway. He put himself, his daughter and KP in an uncomfortable situation.

Doria quitting he job and going into private practice is no big deal IMO.

That's like a lawyer who works for the public defenders/district attorney's office deciding to leave to start their own office. More flexibilty, less regulation (from bosses not the state) and possibly more money.

I am not sure how this could be a negative.

Agreed. This will also give her more freedom over her time. She schedule clients, etc as she sees fit and can carve out time for traveling to the UK to visit. When you work for someone else you have to adhere to their vacation/time off policies. And goodness knows we need more social workers to work with our seniors. So this seems like a good idea all around.

Sr bailed because he didn't want to face Meghan, Harry, the BRF and mainly the queen.

The Dooleys are in town to be wedding correspondents for Good Morning Britain. ITV spared no expense

I think GMB is setting these clowns up.

It totally slipped my mind that she could visit the UK a bit more. Depending on how long she was with her current job, what's the max leave you get? 4 to 6 weeks right...and you would need to be there at least 10 or more years.

She can contract out to nursing homes and maybe some government agencies, after going thru a bidding process I would assume. Does anyone know how that works?

Re: Thomas (her Dad)

I'm being empathetic. Whatever a muddle he created, his pulling out seems to show he felt in over his head, uncomfortable and a liability.

I think this shows he cares. Saying "I won't further be an embarrassment" takes guts. And however we here on the forums would have played his role, I'll just say we are more informed then he was on all these matters. He's aging, not wealthy, definitely out of touch and a bit of an introvert, by all accounts.

As for Mom reportedly opening her own practice:
  1. Good for her becoming a small business person
  2. America is built on small businesses
  3. She can always go back to public employment
  4. Depending on her employer, they may not have given her much of a choice. A lot of American businesses are more about productivity than giving time off to the mother of the Bride or fielding calls from nosey reporters

And people will go to her because she’s Meghan’s mother. She hasn’t done this before but now she is known she does !!

Setting up ones own business is a brave move [and laudable] , but I agree the timing looks a bit questionable, and WILL draw criticism, altho' not on the scale her ex-husbands behaviour has, and is..
