Even if she was sitting in a studio all she could say is "that's Megahan" when she arrives and name anyone else of the bridal party. She will know nothing about the dress, tiara, etc. and she will not be able to identify 91% of the guests. What else is there that she can do?

Provide very basic and generic "color" commentary on her childhood memories of Meghan.

Unless security is told to target her for removal, I can't see why Samantha wouldn't be able to get into the crowd... it's a crowd of onlookers.

While I agree that Samantha being the commentator is a ridiculous thing, all they would need to do to address that is give her an ear piece and have someone feed her lines related to non-Meghan things. Which, to be honest, seems like something they'll be doing regardless of who is the commentator(s).

I agree. I very much can see her out there in the crowd unless they fear for her safety and being in a wheelchair when she is not as well liked... might be kind of a hostile atmosphere. So maybe she will be in studio just rambling her opinions. We know coverage will start bright and early so she will have plenty to say. We know she never shuts up. I am personally here to see her face crack if her kids show up invited. :)

I'm sorry, but if she gets herself into the crowds, when she's not invited to the wedding, it will look horrible on her. If she is some sort of wedding correspondent, she'll be firmly sitting in a studio.
Even in there, she will be an embarrassment.

I found nothing official on Google or ITV Twitter. This may be a trial balloon to see how this goes over. I noticed the Daily Mail has not run a story about Sam since mid January. Not even her ACA interview was picked up. Now I'm waiting for an official announcement that Sam's off the guest list.

I hope this is a false report, it seems like a very bad move from ITV given Samantha's airing of her opinions on Meghan in the past. If she has been chosen as a reporter, I hope that she manages to refrain from any snide comments. Sounds like Samantha wanting the wedding to be more about her than Meghan.

ITV is normally better than this. I can see DM Online TV (with the annoying host) doing this, but not ITV.

Oh god, I really hope this isn't true. Disgusting.

Meghan Markle is no doubt eager to be in great shape for her upcoming wedding at it seems the mother-of-the bride is also keeping her figure in check for the big day.

The yoga instructor, 61, took her dog along as she joined her a friend for a hike in the LA hills, wearing grey leggings and a sports bra.

Boasting a figure a woman half her age would be proud of, the wellness counsellor who works for an Los Angeles-based organization specialising in treating substance abuse, was an advertisement for the toning benefits of yoga practice.

Meghan's mother looked every inch the seasoned hiker with two water bottles strapped to the band of her leggings to ensure she stayed hydrated during the gruelling ascent.

After the hike, Doria stopped off at Target, known for its budget household essentials, and pulled on a yellow t shirt over her sports gear for the shopping trip.

Wow! Doria does look fantastically fit although I do think those photos were a tad bit on the intrusive side.

Heck, I give up on working out. Think I'm going to work on a few donuts.

I hope I look as good as Doria when I'm 61! It's great that she still exercises, I gave up a long time ago - well, I didn't even start

I am too but it speaks to a healthy mind, a healthy body and a personal commitment to that notion that a healthy mind and a healthy body is the result of a life in balance and practising self-discipline.

Meghan Markle was seen by the people who hired her as a sound and committed actress and the number of seasons bears this out. Harry met a woman that is both committed to her craft yet had also seemed to have a really good work-life balance that enabled her to have both a social life and be seriously involved in charity work

Doria seems to be a fantastic mother and, much as it pains me to say it, this article is more than a little intrusive. I don't know how the laws work over there but they really need to back off.

Unfortunately, freedom of press also protects the paparazzi here. There is very little they can do about it. Especially in California where paparazzi swarms because of the celebrities that live there.

The DM has found a long-deleted online diary of a struggling actress, believed to be Meghan because of several references in the text. It seems a pretty authentic picture of a struggle to make it in the acting business actually, though whether it really was Meghan's blog, I don't know.

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/arti...ring-blog.html

'Come and read about the girl with the magical boobs': Meghan Markle's secret diary revealed as she is exposed as the anonymous author of a soul-baring blog in which she described herself as a struggling actress 'hustling' to reach stardom
The anonymous internet diary was fearlessly candid. Penned in a confessional style, its author — an aspiring young Hollywood actress with a salty turn of phrase and a keen eye for detail — chronicled her triumphs and tribulations as she ‘hustled’ in search of stardom.

Some entries exposed the darker side of Tinseltown. The tyrannical casting directors and ‘bitchy’ rivals with whom she vied for roles, for example, and the hard-driving producers who treated the cast like ‘show ponies’, enlisting a doctor to inject them with vitamins so they stayed fit for work.

She laid bare her ‘roller-coaster’ emotions, which swung back and forth with success and failure.


When she passed an audition, her confidence soared and the champagne corks popped; when she was rejected, she would spend the day ‘sobbing in bed with a bottle of wine and a box of biscuits’.

Then there were the daily indignities and the financial hardship she endured as she clawed for recognition.

‘I’ve had to freeze my [acting] union membership, borrow money, work jobs that I hated, endure being treated like s**t on a set, kiss actors with smelly breath and cry for hours on end because I just didn’t think I could take it any more,’ she wrote.

Not worth the time or energy to open and read. Just from what has been posted in the link, it sounds absolutely nothing like Meghan. It could be any struggling actress anywhere writing this "blog" and the DM pinning a "possible" author on it.

Regardless, even if it was Meghan in her struggling years, it has absolutely no value to who she is now. Who I was and what I struggled through during the dark days of a crumbling marriage is definitely part of my life but does not define who I am today.

Did I mention yet that its the Daily Fail? The "anythingforabuck" Daily Fail?

I find this sentence to be odd because Americans don't typically don't use the word biscuits when they mean cookies and I'm assuming this is prior to Meghan landing a role on Suits.
