THE Harry and Meghan story continued to dominate as we prepared this issue – and at every social gathering I went to people would ask me what I thought of it. YOU does so many royal articles, they’d say – you must know what’s going on. “Why couldn’t Meghan settle down?” one friend asked. “Do you think she was unfairly treated by the public and the British media?” Yes, to some extent – but I don’t think it’s just because she’s Meghan. Becoming a member of the royal family requires nerves of steel – because if there’s one thing the tabloids love, it’s building people up and pulling them down. In the beginning Meghan was the best thing to happen to Harry – bright and vivacious, charismatic and clever. But critics soon…

LIFE WITHOUT TINA MY LATE wife, Colleen, wrote this after our dog, Tina, died. I thought your readers might enjoy it. “I find myself reaching for you in my sleep to make sure I don’t hurt you when I roll over. I still smell your fresh doggy-smell after your “spa day” – a hint of strawberries. It pervades your blankets. “I can still feel your soft, furry body pressed up against my back where you’d curl up each night. And I still listen out for your gentle snores. “Jazz, your fur-sister, is mourning. She searches for you throughout the garden and house and sits quietly almost as if she expects you to come hopping into the room with your damaged legs, huffing and puffing, asking to be lifted. She’s very quiet. Dad cries silently…

the sussex crisis

We all wanted Prince Harry to fall in love and be happy, so it’s very sad that Meghan displays all the classic traits of a narcissist. Her family told the world she’s self-centred, manipulative and conniving but we didn’t listen because we wanted to believe the fairytale. At the wedding only Meghan’s mother attended – no siblings, cousins, aunts, nephews or nieces and no maid of honour. Narcissists surround themselves with only those who adore them and everyone else is cast aside. It can’t be that both families are to blame. Look for the common denominator: unfortunately it’s Meghan. A narcissist refuses to allow others to shine or steal their limelight, probably why there was no maid of honour – because we all remember how much press Pippa’s derrière received at Kate’s wedding. Standing…

in brief

Having just read Sandy Smith’s predictions for South Africa 2020 (YOU, 9 January) I think I’ll go slit my wrists. I don’t think she’s telling us anything we don’t already expect but, my word, what a horrible gloomy picture she paints. MARY PENTZ, SOUTHPORT Why are clerks at motor licence offices so rude to the public and why can they dress as if they’re going to the beach instead of behaving like real civil servants and dressing appropriately? ANNE, EMAIL So the start of the new year begins with loadshedding again! How are businesses supposed to operate under these circumstances? WENDY, MIDRAND I agree with Irritated (YOU Say, 16 January). “You know” is so irritating in conversation and so is “er”. When I was a young secretary I took dictation from a man whose every second word…

a cruel spotlight

YOU need the hide of a rhino to be a wife of Windsor and Meghan must have known this when she entered into married life with Prince Harry. There was history the Duchess of Sussex couldn’t have ignored: her late mother-in-law, Princess Diana, was ripped apart at the altar of public opinion almost from day one. Her sister-in-law Kate, Duchess of Cambridge, too was slammed from all quarters – as was her family. Meghan (38) even admitted that one of her friends had warned her the British tabloids would destroy her life. “But I didn’t get it,” she confessed to ITV reporter Tom Bradby in a controversial documentary filmed shortly after the Sussexes’ Southern African tour last year. And in the end Meghan and Harry (35) couldn’t take it anymore – a life away from…
