Megan Markle has been making secret visits to comfort the survivors of Grenfel Towers , just like Diana use to make secret visits !

It was only a matter of time Annie .

Well at least she got a new ring which is more than the other one did.

PamelaJ1 Tue 13-Feb-18 09:16:10

It was so secret that no one knows about it!😂

Anniebach Tue 13-Feb-18 09:16:24

Does .Harry want to turn her into his mother ?

FlorenceN Tue 13-Feb-18 09:45:03

A very rich royal would be a great comfort to me if I'd lost everything in a fire. Just a few words, perhaps a hug and off she trots back to her immensely privileged life. Yeah, very uplifting

Luckygirl Tue 13-Feb-18 09:50:47

I guess there might be folk who might appreciate it. So t would be a help to them.

gillybob Tue 13-Feb-18 09:59:55

Exactly FlorenceN almost like rubbing your nose in it !

Perhaps it will wake up the government to the realisation that they are still failing the survivors of Grenfell.
At least they have now come to the attention of the MSM again.

Bridgeit Tue 13-Feb-18 10:05:21

Dammed if you do dammed if you don’t.! Just saying

Babybelle Tue 13-Feb-18 10:11:48

Quite so,Bridgeit!

Rocknroll5me Tue 13-Feb-18 10:12:33

Good for her. It’s better than not doing anything.

Anniebach Tue 13-Feb-18 10:14:16

Kate had better watch her back, think how Diana stabbed poor old fergie.

Blinko Tue 13-Feb-18 10:15:01

Quite agree, Bridgeit. Seems she won't be able to do right for doing wrong in some people's eyes.

Marieeliz Tue 13-Feb-18 10:15:23

Quite so Bridgeit, quite a nasty lot on here sometimes. Jealousy comes to mind.

radicalnan Tue 13-Feb-18 10:16:26

What has happened to the millions donated to the victims, why are they still sitting in B&B?????

Never mind Meggy they need an account round there asap.

She is another bore trying to gain what money alone can't buy her that feeling superiority to others..........

No wonder her wedding parade is going past the charity shops in Windsor...........she loves slumming they all do makes them feel virtuous.

Anniebach Tue 13-Feb-18 10:16:57

jealousy of what ?

Theoddbird Tue 13-Feb-18 10:19:40

So many cynical comments here. Can this woman do no right in your eyes. Leave her alone. She is trying hard to find her place here. It took Diana a long time but eventually she won the hearts of the country. Let her find her way with criticising all the time. Rant over.

Iam64 Tue 13-Feb-18 10:20:25

It’s beyond me why some women seem to delight in sneering at, making very unpleasant comments about other women. This young woman had a successful career, she’d done humanitarian work. She is trying to forge a role in her new life. I do hope she doesn’t suffer the same fate as Diana. She seems a more resilient character than 19 year old and far from worldly wise Diana was when she developed an eating disorder as a consequence of the way she was treated.

sweetcakes Tue 13-Feb-18 10:20:39

Give the girl a chance if she proves you right then you can rip her to shreds till then leave her alone. As for fergie she was her own worst enemy wasn't she and still is.

ajanela Tue 13-Feb-18 10:21:01

Let's be positive. What they tell us about her she has a history of being involved and is not just an actress. She is making a big effort to be part of her furture husband's life, country and charities. Adopting his religion and now meeting the people. Harry has shown he cares with his involvement with Help for Heroes and other charities. I am sure the service man who has lost both legs appreciates Harry's support even if he can still walk.

If they just stayed home and socialised she would be criticised for taking him away from his Royal duties. As his wife she will be expected to take on some charities and how can she do this if she doesn't find out what is happening

Would you be so negative if she was a Princess or from another royal family?

I hope she is not discouraged by this sceptical attitude from people. I also think we must make her feel welcome in our country or Harry will be gone and the wonderful bond between 2 brothers damaged.

Anniebach Tue 13-Feb-18 10:22:27

But Diana won the hearts of some in the country and left a trail of hurt and betrayal behind her

What iam64 said.

I am a republican, but the system is what it is.

Kim19 Tue 13-Feb-18 10:25:35

Do we know who let the 'secret' out?

littleflo Tue 13-Feb-18 10:26:35

I think it depends who released the information to the media. If it was someone present at the time rather than the Palace PR, then it puts a different light on it.

I agree the Royals often can’t win. I do think this new generation of Royals are trying hard.

sarahellenwhitney Tue 13-Feb-18 10:27:49

Anniebach, Yes.
