While the furor continues in England over the scandal associated with the publication of Omid Scobie's book, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex are in no hurry to make a statement and publicly take responsibility for the fact that it was not they who gave Scoby the names of those high-ranking members of the royal family who were interested in the color of the skin of the couple's son Archie when Meghan was pregnant. And while lawyers urge the Sussexes not to be silent, Meghan and Harry continue to pretend nothing is happening.

The other day, the 42-year-old Duchess was spotted walking in Santa Barbara. She was wearing black leggings, a black long-sleeved T-shirt and a green baseball cap and wearing New Balance sneakers. Megan wore Krewe sunglasses and pulled her hair back into a braid.

The Daily Mail published a video from the Duchess's walk. It seems that she was accompanied by security. Megan had a casual look, however, as always. The Duchess learned to work with the press a long time ago, and it is possible that this "walk" was planned to shift the focus of attention from Scobie to Meghan herself.

It should be noted that the Sussexes refused to publicly defend their relatives, and the publisher of the book, Scobee, did not provide any explanation for how these names of "royal racists" ended up in the press. Buckingham and Kensington Palaces are reportedly considering legal action.
