This is not a slag off Harry and Meghan post just an observation on the photo of them with the other volunteers. Did anyone else note that their aprons were the only ones with a logo on it? Whether they knew about it or not it seems that they are in a position of being exploited.

Sounds a bit like a slag off.
Maybe they are the best people to promote the charity or maybe it just happened that way.

In fact, look at it again. There are at least 3 other people with logos on their aprons. Some have them on their hats and others on T shirts which are partly obscured by their aprons. Some seem to have smaller logos which aren't very visible in the photo.

We financially support them to support American charities

They'll never be exploited. Everything they do is a career move.

Lady Colin Campbell's book is out today and is already temporarily out of stock whereas Finding Freedom has had its price slashed from £20 to £13.60 grin

It's not out until the 11th August.

The only news I want to hear about M and H is that they have paid back the costs of Frogmore - in full, not monthly - as has been reported, that they are costing the British taxpayer nothing and that they never return to the UK to be involved in any sort of royal duties.

Did you pre-order it, Annie?

I'm still wading through a list of books on Kindle that I downloaded at the beginning of Lockdown. There were so many recommendations that I got a bit trigger happy.

Now all I've got to do is read them! grin

merlotgran Thu 25-Jun-20 10:36:33

Actually, my last post is nonsense. I don't think you need to pre-order a kindle version.

Heat's getting to my brain!

Is Finding Freedom available on Kindle ? The price was reduced soon after it came out so think I could stretch to 99pgrin.

Anniebach Please review the Lady C book and let us know what you think.

jaylucy Thu 25-Jun-20 10:54:41

Anniebach Thu 25-Jun-20 10:55:46

jaylucy Good question. Often to give a platform for the replies it has invoked.
