Harry’s juggling balls!

Meghan is doing her serious promotion of her new ‘give 40 minutes’ chat and Harry is in the background juggling (or attempting to) and causing a disruption to the proceedings. I’m baffled as to why. Perhaps he’s getting over the saving the world claptrap and decided to take the p**s, or perhaps he just wanted attention like a child. It’s just so bizarre, or is it just me being a grumpy old bat?

Can you do a link please?
I have to keep abreast of this type of thing for professional reasons! smile

I don’t know how to do link but it’s on the Daily Mail (yes I know😳) article with video.

Well, that made me squirm. I can’t see how Meghan and her forty friends can be particularly good mentors.

I feel rather sorry for Harry but he did make his own bed. Perhaps he should learn to play the fiddle instead!

Thank you Ayse.

But no doubt plenty to comment on….

Is it supposed to be funny?
Is it a postmodern joke about him having nothing better to do?
Will the next episode see him cleaning the pool, or applying for a job at Walmart?

When Meg is making yet another public appearance perhaps she thinks - ‘ what can I find for Haz to be included’

Nana4 Wed 04-Aug-21 18:28:02

I saw that too, Harry and his juggling act, making him look so childish and immature I’d rather see him cleaning the pool but that’s for the staff. She thought it was funny, that’s the main thing!

I think it was an insult to describe it as juggling

SueDonim Wed 04-Aug-21 18:40:21

Who was looking after the children while she was Zooming and he was juggling? 👀

The nanny or some other minion?

The Dalai Lama

Well, I thought it was very funny

Me too Callistemon but it’s gone straight over many heads grin

Their dog wasn't very impressed! He's fast asleep.
I thought dogs chased balls?

I thought it was funny but just incompatible with the main purpose of the video, namely Meghan’s publicising her new initiative. Mind you the clown turn has garnered a lot of publicity so perhaps there’s method in his madness.

I thought it was quite funny. It's less than 30 seconds in the video and just at the end. The concept is actually quite good. While she was here Meghan worked with Smart Works an organisation which helps get women out of long term unemployment by providing support, interview training, advice on dressing and an interview outfit. It's extremely successful. She's developed the idea to fit in the US. Good idea.

He's not well. He's behaving like a child who wants mummy's attention while she's busy doing something.

BlueBelle Wed 04-Aug-21 19:25:20

Well it’s kept all you lot amused so achieved something
Anyone else doing that and you’d all be applauding 🙃

Ellianne Wed 04-Aug-21 19:29:31

It's not that original. Mandela Day did 67 minutes for the number of years.

No, not me .... only if it was a child and not a man of his age. I'd be embarrassed if I'd been Meghan.
