  1. If you read Scobie's article about the SussexRoyalTour of Africa there were some embargoed engagements that would be announced closer to time. So, Meghan visiting was the place where woman was killed or her family was not secret. It was PRIVATE! Even Scobie sad in his post! And no Scobie is not Sussexes pr reporter. SussexRoyal did a post to draw attention to the cause of GBV and the fact that the Sussexes support them. But whatever the Sussexes do some people will always criticize, especially Meghan! It's so tiring.

    1. The visit was a secret & private. The media was not told about it in advance. But the Sussexs choose to share info about the visit after. Also, it was not listed on the Court Circular, so it's not an engagement.

      The embargoed engagements you are referring to are something else.
