"On this occasion, I suspect Meghan's no-show in London says more about her antipathy towards Britain, than the couple's relationship," she explained. "We don't deserve her, at least so she probably thinks. Also, there's that outstanding issue regarding the couple's U.K. security and who pays for it…"
