Thread Name: BS: Harry and Meghan
Subject: RE: BS: Harry and Meghan
Harry also had a mother who was both beloved and controversial,
and who remains so long after her premature passing.

Why not Vancouver, though?
The married couple, and Vancouver, are already acquainted with each other,
and I didn't hear anything negative about their visit there.
That way they are not far from California,
where I believe Meghan's mother is located;
and they are still within the U. K.
Vancouver is a happening place,
no small amount of television shows are from studios there.

The Queen's official pronouncement, stating that
she would have preferred that they stay as they were,
gave me something to think about.

I'm not surprised at accounts of discomfort or discord
within the family ranks, although
the two brother princes surely respect each other.
The royal family has never lacked for internal conflict.
I recall when William and Harry, still enrolled in school,
had to break the news to their father
that their uncle Edward intended to make and distribute
some sort of film footage about them --
"incandescent" was the word used to describe
Prince Charles's understandable expression of temper.

Although change is so uncomfortable for certain people, or groups of people, concerned,
I think time and distance could actually be healing here.
