According to Sandra, Meghan missed her daily routine, calm with simple pleasures.

“Look, because she is a very simple girl. She loved to go for a walk, do her yoga, do her shopping, do the things you do in your normal life, you know, so when I saw that, I said: 'I don't know if she’s going to withhold', she’s going to miss her normal way of living, going out to the street to buy and pick her tomatoes, she grew her fruits, her vegetables in her garden, ”she said.
