Leave the Markles alone. The need for gossip shouldn"t lead to snobby trashing

Image
It’s not easy turning a wedding, the heartwarming tale of two lovers wanting to live happily ever after, into something that makes everyone involved feel absolutely terrible.
But we seem to have managed it, with days to spare. Meghan Markle’s elderly father is now said to be considering pulling out of the royal wedding, following embarrassment over the publication of some hammy staged photos of him supposedly being measured for his suit. Thomas Markle, who is 73 and recovering from a heart attack, may not now be walking her down the aisle – and no, this isn’t the time for arguing that it’s sexist for men to “give” their daughters away anyway; it’s her wedding, not yours, and she should have been able to involve her family in whatever way she chooses.
But more important, it absolutely isn’t the time for journalists to observe self-righteously that Thomas Markle invaded his own privacy, and that he only has himself to blame for reportedly colluding with paparazzi to stage those photos – w…

TMZ originally stood for Thirty-Mile Zone, a swath of Los Angeles covering the entertainment industry, but now the abbreviation means something else and is prompting howls 5,000 miles away in Buckingham Palace.
TMZ.com took its name from the cartographic reference, but the news website is in the business of getting global clicks through scoops on celebrities, athletes, tycoons – and royalty.
Its clout was on neon-flashing display this week with a series of exclusives about whether Meghan Markle’s father, Thomas Markle, would attend her marriage to Prince Harry at Windsor Castle on Saturday.

What Meghan and Harry Can Teach William and Kate

What an extraordinary week it has been for Meghan Markle and Prince Harry.Although the couple were married only on Saturday last week, they have already carried out their first engagement as a married couple, making a public appearance at a garden party, with 6000 invited guests, to celebrate Prince Charles’ 70th birthday (a little early perhaps as it doesn"t actually occur until November.)They were, by all accounts, a sensation. Meghan looked incredible, dressed in a stunning pink and taupe summer dress by Goat and a Philip Treacy hat, and chatted breezily with numerous guests. She opened her conversation, as has become her signature, with a breezy, “Hi, I’m Meghan!”Although the Palace are unwilling to give any precise or exact commitments, sources are suggesting that we will be seeing much, much more of Meghan and Harry over the coming six months than might have been anticipated.A trip to Dublin is apparently in the pipeline, and, possibly a mission to Australia, where the two …
