I speak to the woman in my corner shop daily, I dont believe she has any deep insight into my personal life though even though we chat.

Diana took flack for her lack of stiff upper lip too and she was British.

Meghan is not British, does not deal with things the British way, and has a very different way of doing things. And its not liked.

It was expected that she would conform, would follow protocol, would have the stiff upper lip, the just get on with it attitude. But she didnt and it is not liked.

She is a Royal now, people say, she should act like a Royal.

But hey guess what, how can some someone act like a Royal, and understand generations of protocol and the weight of expectations when that person has not grown up in British society?

Did she ?
Diana was very young when she joined the Royal Family, she endured a cheating husband from the get go which caused her some awful health issues. She was adored by a majority of the public both here and overseas even when the marriage failed . I don't see any comparison in character between her and Meghan other than she was of interest to the press
I don't really understand what you mean with your statement about the lack of stiff upper lip

Like them or not I do think everyone is in agreement that if they want to step back that is fine, also I guess we all agree regarding monies they receive and not living off the tax payer if they are not doing duties so what the heck is this thread about?

BBC News reporting that Meghan has returned to Canada - the original article appears in the Daily Mail so how far this is true we do not know.
