If Sarah and Diana struggled to adjust to the difficult life in that Royal family, Meghan can certainly be excused for finding all the attacks day in and day out too much to survive.

'too much to survive'?? What sort of fairy tale world do you live in? This is struggling to survive (warning: photographs of men, women and children who really are struggling to survive). Out of sensitivity for BE members I haven't posted anything terribly graphic, just your common garden variety struggle to survive war, extreme poverty, famine.

Perhaps mental health rather than physical survival. Particularly for Diana.

Mental abuse as oppose to physical abuse is the leading cause of suicidal thoughts, attempts and deaths. The reason we adults tell children how wrong it is to bully other children is because of the unintended repercussions.

I found it interesting what Sarah had to say in her interview on the Oprah Show. It was her considered opinion that the press in the UK were doing everything in their power to destroy the life of Diana. Oprah asked her do you think they were trying to do harm to Diana, and Sarah responded saying she thought they were trying to kill her. That could be perceived as trying to kill her spirit or more sinisterly meant to say actually kill her. Diana did actually die being chased by the press one year later.

No wonder Prince Harry wanted to get his wife and child out of harm's way.

That's rather disingenuous. That was part of it, but her driver being drunk and on drugs, and her not wearing a seatbelt, were the main factors.

It was reported today that Meghan & Harry has turned over the keys for Frogmore Cottage to their cousin Eugenie and her husband. Apparently they have moved all their belongings out of that property prior to the cousins moving in. Nothing like a clean slate to begin a new. It will be interesting to learn if this means Harry & Meghan have axed any future plans of spending time in the UK in 2021 and beyond. The handing over of Frogmore would say no. This move has nothing to do with Meghan, this is totally Harry's decision.
But I do think the birth of a second baby might be announced in the next 6 months.

I agree with you that other aspects certainly played a role but at the end of the day the press were in hot pursuit of her and forcing her to flee. The horrible things the press do to instigate a reaction with famous people are well documented. I've actually had a little experience with that in my business life and it's not pleasant.

Who cares? They don't appear to want anything to do with the UK anymore (apart from any cash) and that's fine. The British public are probably just really bored with hearing about them so best just avoid reading any dull press reports about them!

They were hardly 'forcing her to flee'. She'd always been chased by the press, but never had a drunk driver trying to evade them before, that was the defining factor.

Yep. It was in the papers yesterday but not headline news. Can't see it going down very well given they were only gifted the place a couple of years ago by HM, but don't think many people care if they're not coming back.

I have a different opinion.

Its obvious Harry loves his country and the people, but like all good husbands his main focus MUST be on protecting their brand new baby and protecting Meghan.

If all the aggressive over the top attacks were to stop tomorrow in the UK, it is my belief they would move back to the UK the next day. But the UK gutter press are committed in making the Sussex's life miserable and the public love supporting the press by buying those trashy papers and watching the various news feeds whether they be true or not. The Press have a bottomline mentality which is focused solely on money. If the public were to turn against the Press for the unfair and often untrue attacks against Meghan and Harry, there would be a 180 degree turn how the Sussexes are treated. But that's not going to happen because human nature is more geared toward believing the worse about people than the best. So when the Press point out how odd it is for Meghan to hold her baby bump in such a "nurturing" way, many people in the public will look at that and choose to believe the worse. Keep in mind those attacks are not happening in any other country outside the UK.
