Like most people who visit cities where they have friends, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle took some time out to get dinner and catch up with a few of those friends during their recent trip to New York City. Unlike most people who get dinner with old friends/generally try to live their lives, Harry and Meghan’s nice night out was fully eavesdropped and scrutinized. 🙄
According to a report from Page Six, the Sussexes hung out with another couple (described as a “blonde and a tall guy,” who the outlet noted were believed to be Meghan’s longtime friend, Misha Nonoo, who is blonde, and her husband, Mikey Hess, who, at 6’1, qualifies as a “tall guy”) at the Bemelmans Bar at the Carlyle hotel on Wednesday night. Apparently, a “spy who sat opposite the pair” spilled all kinds of tea/seeming conjecture about the date—primarily that Meghan did “most of the talking” during the dinner.
The source couldn’t emphasize enough how much Meghan talked during the double date, and apparently even asked their own dinner companion, “Why is she talking so much?” (No word on what insights the spy’s dinner companion had into Meghan’s personal conversational habits/psyche, tragically.)
Of course, no one outside of the actual conversation could answer the question of why Meghan was (reportedly) talking so much, but off the top of my head, I’d guess some combination of excitement to catch up with a close friend and share stories about big life news (like the recent birth of her daughter, Lilibet Diana) and/or excitement about some professional endeavor or passion project (of which the Sussexes notably have many).
Those are only guesses, obvi, but since the Page Six “spy” also reported that, “[Meghan] was excited about something” and “she talked with her hands a lot,” they don’t seem like terrible guesses.
The source also reported back on Harry’s behavior during the double date, saying that he had “very few responses” during the conversation and looked at his phone off and on during the dinner.
“Harry got bored and started looking at his phone,” the source/spy said. “Then he got back in the conversation, and then he lost it again and went back to his phone.”
Maybe Harry was checking out and taking a brain break/engaging in a little boredom scrolling (if that’s a crime, I don’t personally know any smartphone user who isn’t guilty), but there are obviously lots of boredom-free reasons he could have been looking at his phone.
And that’s just off the top of my head.
