What real scandal?
Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex, is already back at work and seems to be doing business as usual, although in Canada.
The former actress, an advocate for women's empowerment, appeared Tuesday at the Vancouver Women's Center and was photographed smiling along with the staff. It was her first public appearance since she and her husband, Prince Harry, announced last week that they were going to abandon their roles as royalty members.
Look who we have tea with today! The Duchess of Sussex, Meghan Markle, visited us today to discuss issues that affect women in the community, "read a post on the center's Facebook page.
The former actress raised in Los Angeles has returned to Canada for a few days with the couple's youngest son, Archie. He returned to the Commonwealth country last week when there was a seismic change in Britain's royal family since the revelation of Sussexes that they were going to abandon their royal duties, working to be financially independent and dividing their time between the United Kingdom and North America .
Queen Elizabeth II gave her blessing to the young couple earlier this week, although her moderate reaction indicated that there was still much to be resolved logistically. Among the concerns: paying for the safety of Sussex's offspring, for which Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau has also expressed concern. It is also not clear if the couple will retain their real titles.
Meghan stayed in Canada, where she lived for years while working on the television series "Suits", and spent the holidays there. Meanwhile, Harry, Brother William and his father, Prince Charles, held a crisis summit with the Queen on Monday at their Sandringham Estate to discuss the rift and how the royal family will make the transition. Meghan was expected to call the meeting, but reportedly did not.
The appearance of the duchess in the women's center also occurs when court documents were filed this week that indicate her separated father, Thomas Markle, could be testifying against her in the High Court during a trial about her treatment in the British media, Associated Press reported.
In October, Meghan and Harry filed a lawsuit against the British tabloid The Mail and its parent company, Associated Newspapers, for publishing a private letter to their father expressing disappointment in their public statements about her, as well as her relationship, among other details. .
It was that civil lawsuit, which accuses the newspaper of copyright infringement, improper use of private information and violation of the UK data protection law with the publication of the letter, which led Harry to compare the abuse of his girlfriend with his late mother, Princess. Diana, who died in a car accident in 1997 after being chased by photographers in Paris.
"My biggest fear is that history repeats itself," he said regarding the lawsuit. "I have seen what happens when someone I love becomes merchandise to the point that they are no longer treated or seen as a real person. I lost my mother and now I see my wife being a victim of the same powerful forces."
