Meghans ego trip???

I am on Twitter and check out a lot of news items from Sky News.
This last one caught my eye with regards to Meghan Windsor complaining about the News media again.


this is someone that wanted to get away from the press and seek a quite life outside of the Royal family and outside of the UK.


Seems like she just wants more attention by speaking about the press to the press.


She knew about Harry attending a function and begged her friends to get her a ticket. Once in she claimed she did not know who Harry was. It was her intention to snag him somehow and it worked. But she tried to do this once inside the Palace but realized no one was taking her seriously and that is why she wanted her own household staff that she will pick and the press secretary as well.


If she kept her head down accepted the Royal protocols, then she could have been fully accepted and we would not have lost Harry.


She made her bed now she wont lay on it but just wants to stir up more publicity and generate more cash for herself.


I am sorry but this person should just stay away from the press and live the quite life she is supposed to be craving.????

Re: Meghans ego trip???

Actually got a great life over here as a permanent resident.


If this forum is just about making nice conversation better tell that to all the other that tend to make snide remarks and probably should get a life also.


But you are entitled to your opinion as I am.

Why would you think that anyone here would be interested in hearing your opinion about media gossip? This is not Twitter.

Re: Meghans ego trip???

Harry who? Harry Potter? Dirty Harry? And who is this Meghan lady you are talking about and why are so interested in her life and what she does? Neighbors of yours? Who ever they might be, I suggest you should keep your busy nose for your self and not stuck it in other peoples affairs. Last word, yellow press is nothing less than stalking by proxy.

Re: Meghans ego trip???

You folks are being a bit harsh (including a moderator again ) considering we've already had a couple of threads about Meghan and Harry - or have you all forgotten?

https://www.englishforum.ch/internat...ry-meghan.html

https://www.englishforum.ch/internat...-thunberg.html

Still the OP complains that Meghan goes on about press intrusion into her life and yet proves the press are right to pursue her because she's one of millions reading/listening/watching what they report.

She's a celeb and will never have a completely private life, nor do I think she expects that. What she (and Harry) don't want is press people invading their privacy with drones, etc, entering their property, etc. How would you like it if you had these sort of people pestering you in your home? Not much I expect. So don't feed the press by reading/listening/watching what they report about Meghan. Otherwise it's no good complaining that she's complaining - you're part of the reason for her complaints.

Man, you really don't have a clue, do you!

Harry from Schwamendingen: (attention, not one pc bone, do.not.blame.me.)



Meghan is - as TheLocal apparently already reported in 2017 - a Swiss girl from Glattfelden. (in English)



Alles klar?

Re: Meghans ego trip???

Ha ha. I get where the OP is coming from. I hope Harry is happy and remains so in LA but sometimes I can’t help comparing his situation a bit to Edward’s. Those darn American women 🤪

Get a life.
I see your point, but maybe you may want to consider that the bubble that the OP is living in is a big one. Full to the top with so many people that it is in itself another way of living, of life.

Everyone has their place here on earth. And with it comes the freedom, assuming he or she lives in a free state, to voice their opinions. I sort of missed the Forum/fake news boat but I would`nt mind jumping in for a while and checking it all out. sadly I just don`t have the time and have moved on to much more meaningfull things too. for sure being hooked on drugs is not my thing, especially Dopamine.

This forum is not as tame as you may think. The back stabber vampires come out when the oppertunity presents itself here too. If you look at the complaints section you will see what I men. Oh and check out some of the groaners and you will see what i mean. Very juicy stuff there that has it all.

Yes, a lot of posts over the last couple of days; pretty obvious where she was heading.

Well, at least she put some effort into it instead of adding insignificant single sentences to various posts. Too bad about the groans, though. I don't think she quite understood what some of the posters were saying.

(To be fair, that happens to me all the time too.)
