Really? That's interesting. In the US we have both the CV (used as the name suggests) and resumes. Are you saying that people without PhDs say CV and not resume?

Does no one in the UK use the term resume?

Learn something new everyday around here. :)

This explanation of English First might answer some of your questions - as it is indeed mainly the US and Canada that use (the word) resume; other countries use the word C.V. - and they are different but becoming more alike over time (probably because of the internationalization of the (business) world).

Good grief, teenagers and parents (maybe) not getting along. Not really big news, happens all the time. I'm sure 36 year old Meghan doesn't view things the same as 18 year old Meghan.

I personally think she handled herself well given Ferguson's gross and condescending manner and questions. She was clearly uncomfortable.

This is the biggest load of BS. Based on their own stalking this week, we know that Meghan's dad loves her enough to not talk about this right now even if they are in his face about it. He's respecting her happiness.

I honestly don't know any teenager who has always gotten along with their parents all the time. It happens, that's one video from almost 20 years ago. From all accounts, her father has tried to protect her by not saying anything so far. Does anyone honestly think that he hasn't been offered major money to talk? They stalked the guy at his storage unit, who said that he has always talked proudly of Meghan even before Harry. OTOH, he doesn't say anything about his older kids to a point they didn't even know he had other kids until this mess. Talk about having bad relationship, Meghan and her dad don't make the cut.

I've seen this one before. It's typically entertainment show. It cracked me up when I saw it. I didn't see anything wrong with it, but it's not a royal duchess level interview. It's obviously different than what we saw in the interview last week. Too bad Meghan didn't have a crystal ball then and know she'll one day marry royalty.

Itís Craig Ferguson. Iím assuming youíve never watched his show, this was totally nothing compared to how he can be with his guests.

Of course itís BS, itsí Daily Fail. And every time you guys click on the links and read their articles they earn money any will continue doing this and probably much worse. Thereís a reason why DM links are forbidden on other blogs and forums.

I think this story actually originated from the Sun. They both have people in Mexico stalking her dad.

I don't see how a divorced couple could get invited at the same time...

I highly doubt an invitation will be made. If Prince Harry hasn't even met Mr. Markle, I doubt he will do so at his father's house or during the holidays. It is more likely that Miss Markle's mother will visit her daughter in the UK soon and on that occasion she might be some memebers of the RF, but I categorically exclude an invitation to Sandringham.

If there is one thing British upper class understand is remaining friends after a divorce. And from what we've heard, they've remained friendly. They even had Thanksgiving together in 2016.

I have no idea about the invitation though, nor do I have an opinion on that.

I don't think she was uncomfortable! In any case, she kept bantering and making silly jokes herself. Awful...Superficial, and a bit of a show-off, too. SOrry, I hope I'm not offending anybody. Also, I don't think "Suits' has ever been the no. 1 show on tv. I think Ferguson was joking and she didn't pick up on it...

Have you guys watched late night comedy shows before? Because this isn't really that bad. It's pretty much just joking around from beginning to end while plug the project a little. It's comedy, it's not supposed to be heavy in substance. Now try that on those shows, you'll really understand what awkwardness is.

yes, but the problem I have with this reasoning is..."who is she, then?"

I know it's comedy but there's a classy way of doing comedy/plugs and of carrying and presenting yourself. I don't think it's a question of superficiality only: nobody was expecting a discussion on Kant, but, I mean, this was really B-level Hollywood starlet material. Sorry...

Who is she is someone who can crack a joke and talk to different people and connect with different people. It's one interview, some people are acting like this the epitome of what defines her as a person. A person is never just one dimension. You act appropriately based on what you are doing. If you have to go into the office, it's going to be a different demeanor and topic than if you are going out to have drinks with your friends.

Which topic was so bad, exactly? That other Hollywood actress don't talk about if it comes up? I feel like people are acting like she did this interview as Harry's fiance. Then yes, I'll give it to you, totally inappropriate. But Meg forgot to check her crystal ball before she left the house that day, I'm sure.

I think what people mean is because Meghanís an actress itís difficult to tell who the real person is.

How can we tell the Ďrealí Meghan from the Meghan thatís just Ďoní , playing for the cameras.

My mother is a big royalist and thatís her problem. When is she acting and when do we see the Ďrealí Meghan

Ha. I fail to see how this an issue with Meghan but not the royals. Lets not pretend as if they have not been taught their entire lives on what to say, how to act in public, etc.

And you think we see the "real" royals? The Queen herself plays a role because it's a duty. They all do. I always remember how shocked people were when Harry filmed that video with the Queen for IG because *gasp* the Queen didn't do that.

Hate to break it to you and your mother, but we almost never see the real royals in front of the camera. They are always nice, smiling, calm, thrilled to visit totally boring and horrible places and I could go on. No one is that on all the time in their private life. Just like I behave differently when Iím at work and talking to customers or my boss, so do the royals. They are human beings after all.
