IN SEARCH OF A BRITISH MAN

English television star Lizzie Cundy shared details of her encounter with Meghan three years ago and how that ended with the latter ghosting her. 

Speaking to The Sun, Lizzie recalled striking a friendship with the new royal mom after accompanying her to a charity dinner in London in 2013.

She claims Meghan asked her for help to find a suitable date. She had just divorced her husband, Trevor Engelson, three months earlier and told Lizzie she was open to partying and mingling with UK celebrities. 

Lizzie, whose autobiography “Tales from the Red Carpet” features stories about her encounters with celebrities thought of setting up Meghan with Ashley Cole who had split from Cheryl. However, when she showed a photo of him to the “Suits” star, she thought he was cute but asked if he had a reputation.

 According to the former wife of Spurs and Chelsea defender Jason Cundy, Meghan’s words were,

“‘Do you know any famous guys? I’m single and I really love English men.’”

FRIENDS, OR SO IT SEEMS

Lizzie, whose autobiography “Tales from the Red Carpet” features stories about her encounters with celebrities thought of setting up Meghan with Ashley Cole who had split from Cheryl.

However, when she showed a photo of him to the “Suits” star, she thought he was cute but asked if he had a reputation. When Lizzie said yes, Meghan was hesitant. 

Lizzie was impressed with Meghan’s relaxed nature when they met up again the following day at the Global Gift Gala in West London. “Meghan’s so relaxed, she liked a drink, great fun,” she said.

She also admired how the former television star was more interested in learning about her sons than talking about herself. They kept in touch after that. 

Lizzie believes, much like what happened with Piers Morgan, Meghan was forced to cut ties with a lot of people. 

GHOSTED

But things changed when Meghan met Harry. Surprised by the news, Lizzie texted the Duchess about it and her short reply was, 

“'Yeah I know. We’ll try and hook up’.”

That was the last she heard from Meghan. Neither did she get an invitation to the wedding. Lizzie believes, much like what happened with Piers Morgan, Meghan was forced to cut ties with a lot of people. 

“She was probably told by the Palace to end contact with people she befriended in the media. I was literally ghosted by her.”

Today is #earthday - an opportunity to learn about, celebrate and continue to safeguard our planet, our home. The above, Their Royal Highnesses in Rotorua, New Zealand. Of the 170 different species originally planted in the early 1900’s, only a handful of species, including these majestic Redwoods, remain today. Next, we invite you to scroll through a series of 8 photos taken by The Duke of Sussex©️DOS sharing his environmental POV including: Africa’s Unicorn, the rhino. These magnificent animals have survived ice ages and giant crocodiles, amongst other things! They have adapted to earth’s changing climate continually for over 30 million years. Yet here we are in 2019 where their biggest threat is us. A critical ecosystem, Botswana’s Okavango Delta sustains millions of people and an abundance of wildlife. Huge bush fires, predominantly started by humans, are altering the entire river system; the ash kills the fish as the flood comes in and the trees that don’t burn become next year’s kindling. Desert lions are critically endangered due partly to human wildlife conflict, habitat encroachment and climate change. 96% of mammals on our 🌍 are either livestock or humans, meaning only 4% remaining are wild animals. Orca and Humpback whale populations are recovering in Norway thanks to the protection of their fisheries. Proof that fishing sustainably can benefit us all. Roughly 3/4 of Guyana is forested, its forests are highly diverse with 1,263 known species of wildlife and 6,409 species of plants. Many countries continue to try and deforest there for the global demand for timber. We all now know the damage plastics are causing to our oceans. Micro plastics are also ending up in our food source, creating not just environmental problems for our planet but medical problems for ourselves too. When a fenced area passes its carrying capacity for elephants, they start to encroach into farmland causing havoc for communities. Here @AfricanParksNetwork relocated 500 Elephants to another park within Malawi to reduce the pressure on human wildlife conflict and create more dispersed tourism. Every one of us can make a difference, not just today but every day. #earthday

GHOSTED TOO

Lizzie’s revelations come on the heels of Piers’ earlier claims that Meghan was a social climber. The news anchor expressed his disappointment after Meghan stopped communicating with him since her association with Prince Harry. 

He said they were friends for a two-year period and would even have drinks in London. The last time she heard from him was the night she went to a party Prince Harry also attended which led to their first date. 

GETTING ON THE MEDIA'S WORST SIDE

Since her widely covered wedding to Prince Harry, Meghan’s relationship with the media has taken a turn for the worse.

Headlines would often place her in a bad light accusing her of being difficult to her staff, of feuding with Kate Middleton, and who could forget the numerous scandals involving her father, Thomas Markle and her half-sister, Samantha Markle.  

  CHANGING TACTICS

It’s not surprising that Meghan would shy away from the media that’s been tearing her apart. The Palace at one point had to intervene after comments on social media were out of control.

Now the Sussexes are trying to find a way to win the media’s hearts again while controlling what’s out there. They recently launched their own Instagram account which promises to be a more intimate venue for them to share their stories. Both are reportedly very involved in what is shared in the account which now has 8.3 million followers.
