I returned to Molière, but I could not concentrate until now. Yesterday was a very sad day.
The Social Media
In fact, current events are leading me to question the appropriateness and validity of statements made on Instagram, or Twitter, or other social media. Among elements militating against social media is timing. Persons are not forever sitting at their computer. In the case of an important statement, should the world know before the addressee.
I would be inclined to question the legality of statements made on Twitter or Instagram. It seems the truth, but the medium is the message.
I’m a blogger, but I seldom “like” or “dislike” something on the social media. Experience has taught me to be careful. For instance, every time I have been quoted by the press, I was quoted erroneously.
As for our Royals, reportedly, persons attending yesterday’s meeting were calm. To my knowledge, there was no firm approval nor was there a firm disapproval of changes in status. So, there is room for everyone to think. Prince Harry talked with his beloved grandmother before the meeting. Moreover William and Harry agreed, in writing, that there was no bullying. Let’s hope everything will remain civilised.
Love to everyone 💕

Let’s hope so
Dear Derrick, Let’s hope so. Meghan married into the British Royal family and knew there would be rules and social engagements. Evidence points to Prince Harry doing what Meghan wishes. Telling where Archie was born, posting a notice according to tradition and disclosing the name of the child’s godparents are not invasions of privacy. It’s a tradition and it is polite. It also puzzles me that Meghan kept her Hollywood agent. Did she fear Prince Harry would divorce her, thereby forcing her to earn a living? I am inclined to believe this one gesture was a “tell-all.” So is the “it’s not working for me.” Would that Prince Harry did not have to choose between Meghan and the Palace. I am truly very sad. Let’s hope matters will be resolved. My best to the two of you.

Time will tell. And best to you, too, Micheline
Time will tell, but it’s a very sad story.
