Purposely avoiding unkind press, negative, and speculative messaging - please join me in exchanging positive commentary about Meghan Markle, Prince Harry and their children Archie and Lili.
The blog initially focused on Meghan and Harry's work as senior members of the British Royal Family.
Since 2020 my posts follow the Sussex's lives and their work as they live independently from the Royal Family.
Business as Usual today for Prince Harry at UK Africa Summit
This morning at the UK-Africa Investment Summit London 2020, hosted by UK Prime Minster Boris Johnson, Prince Harry met with leaders from Malawi, Mozambique and Morocco. Per the web site for the summit, its aim is to bring together businesses, governments and international institutions to
showcase and promote the breadth and quality of investment opportunities across
Africa. The hope is that the summit will support job creation on the continent and Africa’s
economic development and help build a strong partnership between the UK and
African nations for mutual prosperity.

Prince Harry posted some photos of himself and African leaders at the summit on the @sussexroyal Instagram account. Harry talks of his love for Africa. He reminds us about both his and Meghan's past work there. He adds that he and Meghan will continue to support a
growing network of young change-makers across the Commonwealth through their roles as President and Vice-President of The Queen's Commonwealth Trust.
I know we should not encourage the tabloids to hunt out pictures of Meghan, Harry and Archie, but it was lovely to see a recent pic. of the "Adorable Archie" just ahead of his second birthday on May 6th 2021. And look at Meghan's bump. Baby No.2 is growing nicely and it appears that it won't be long before Archie's sister arrives. Was Archie off to a play date? (And in case anyone wants to bitch about the fact that Meghan is not wearing head-to-toe black, in mourning for Prince Phillip, Princess Anne was out and about this week wearing a very non-black hue called Red - just getting this in first before the trolls start) Photo as published by the New York Post
Prince Harry was a guest of Dax Shepard and Monica Padman in episode 325 of their podcast, Armchair Expert. During the hour and a half episode, the trio touched on many issues relating to trauma, addictions, mental health and emotional well-being. Harry also spoke about life in the Royal Family (including some notable moments before he married Meghan) and they touched on his reasons for leaving. Harry, Dax and Monica talked about Harry's life in the British Army, press intrusion into family life, and about some of the pros and cons of social media. Armchair Expert will shortly be moving exclusively to Spotify, the same as Meghan and Harry's own Podcast Archewell. Click to LISTEN
