ALEXANDRA SHULMAN NOTEBOOK: Of course Meghan is intrusive – she is American!

There is absolutely no point in complaining about Meghan & # 39; s designer wardrobe, the eye-catching expensive Frogmore Cottage refurb or her friends with celebrities.

Meghan is just different. She is american. And American women are not like others.

Expecting to share the same behavior and aspirations as the rest of the female members of the royal family will never work. It's just like you think Tank Girl is doing the same as Bo Peep.

What Meghan wants, she will certainly get as Harry would have said. The sooner we get used to it, the easier it will all be

She will certainly get what Meghan wants – just as Harry would have said. The sooner we get used to it, the easier it will all be

American women start from the attitude that everything is possible. Sit back and let others have what you want is for losers. This is ambitious, not dangerous.

You are not coming to the UK and think the best way to get along is to keep a low profile and keep your mouth shut. You do not adopt a calm, creeping way of melting.

Most of the American women I know who moved here are immediately immersed in activities.

Whether it is the WhatsApp school, the book club or the park run, sitting on an art gallery board or a fundraising committee, they will always be the most vocal, quirky and non-negotiable.

Centuries ago it was the pioneer women who held their families together as they walked west along the wagon track.

The formidable matriarchs of Park Avenue ordered and ruled over the mores of American society in the 19th century. And their non-mess-with-me attitude remains today.

Flexibility is seen as weakness and performance is measured in how quickly you can get what you want, with relatively little attention to how you approach it.

The enchanting most of us British women surrender – with a lot of & # 39; I wonder if you wouldn't mind? & # 39 ;, & # 39; sorry if that's annoying & # 39; – is not in their psychological or verbal lexicon.

Focus on your target and hit the trigger. And if there is any additional damage, then that is just straightforward.

So the Duchess of Sussex will see no need to tiptoe when she does her business. She will certainly get what Meghan wants – just as Harry would have said.

Sexism gives me a heart attack

A man enters his doctor with pain in his chest and shortness of breath. He is sent on the road for an ECG pronto and will probably be treated for a possible heart attack.

A woman enters her doctor who suffers from spasms in her abdomen and shortness of breath and she is sent home with Gaviscon to treat the digestion. But maybe she also has a heart attack.

Coronary heart disease is the biggest killer of women in the UK – we are twice as likely to have died from breast cancer – but it is often incorrectly diagnosed because our symptoms are not always the same as those traditionally associated with heart attacks.

I learned this because last week I participated in a panel discussion organized by the British Heart Foundation to start a campaign to address this issue, and I stopped resolving my blood pressure and cholesterol immediately checked.

I also left knowing that, hypochondriac as I am, I will now add another concern to my permanent 3am insomnia list …

Incredible parents have made Natasha proud

Listening to Nadim and Tanya, Ednan-Laperouse – the parents of schoolgirl Natasha who died of an allergic reaction to a fun A Manger baguette – told about their successful campaign for tougher food labeling, my response was one of incredible admiration.

I am sure that if something so unbelievably happened to a child of mine, I would just lose the will to do something, let alone bring myself together and lobby extensively to achieve change.

But they did exactly that and chose, as Nadim said, to shed light on what is in the dark.

As a result, they have made the world a better and safer place for the children of others.

Do you want the truth? Ask an older woman

Maureen Lipman is absolutely right when he says that Sir Mark Rylance is crazy that he has left the Royal Shakespeare Company in protest against BP & # 39; s sponsorship.

At the pace that we are going to make, there will be no more art institution in the country, now that so much sponsor money falls under such criticism.

And how much I love Dame Judi Dench for acknowledging that, no matter how creepy and insulting they might have been, Kevin Spacey had done some great performances at the Old Vic and Harvey Weinstein had a genius for film production?

This is not to cover up their behavior. It just tells the truth. How refreshing to hear these older actresses speak.

Instead of feeling obligated to participate in the tiring virtue signaling of age, they are wise and brave enough to look at the whole picture.

Goop left me with mud on my face

Back in the dark days when Gwyneth Paltrow launched Goop, I thought I'd never heard anything so crazy. And that was just the name.

Now that the tickets for this weekend's annual Goop conference go for £ 1,000 per doll and she has succeeded in making a West London accessory of the day (yes, really) with a 24-carat gold-plated vibrator, the last smile clearly for me.

How style guru Min has broken the code

Min Hogg, who died last week at the age of 80, was the founder of World Of Interiors.

She was a passionate editor and decided that her magazine should not follow trends, but should work wherever she found it, from castles to gypsy caravans.

Min didn't have time for vulgar marketing activities and was crazy about having to place something as commercial as cover lines on her beautiful fronts.

When she was told that it was time that the cover of her magazine, like any other, should contain a bar code so that the sale could be registered, she simply refused for months. Finally she was told that there was no option.

So for the cover of her next issue she chose a room full of a dense multitude of colors, patterns and extensive textiles and she hid the barcode in a huge bookcase, making it almost impossible to find them at the checkout.
