There was talk of opening up the basement (?)of KP to offices thus creating more apartments. Isn't that an option for the couple?
Besides I can see HM or even Prince Charles giving the couple a property as a wedding present

Besides its not just her mother. She has a father as well who she is close to. She also has friends and extended family she is known to celebrate with. Since her parents are divorced, a 2 bedroom cottage wont allow for them to both visit.
I wouldn't expect them to remain very long at NottCott after getting married. Especially if Meghan becomes pregnant soon afterwards. As much as I hate to say it, age does matter here, so time is of the essence. Once they have a child, NottCott is not going to be big enough.

Meghan being a Cali girl doesn't strike me as a woman who would hunt. But how long do these events last? if everyone is gone a few hours that would be a good time to read or paint or even take a nap. Maybe you can follow behind the party separate from all the violence.

What violence? Fox hunting has been banned in Britain for years. Or do you mean shoots, where the men go out on country estates with rifles after pheasant and snipe etc? That can start in the early morning and go on for most of the day, or for a few hours. Sometimes the female guests and family make a day of it too and follow the shooters, but not all do. Some stay at home and do other things.

Someone tweeted Camilla Tominey asking if Meghan will joining the royal family at Sandringham this year. Camilla responded saying "looks likely".

That would be really nice - not that I'm attempting to compare, I just want to get some perspective, but did Catherine ever attend a Christmas service at Sandringham when she was engaged or in a non-married relationship with William?

It's been mentioned in other threads today that when those two were engaged, William wasn't at the Sandringham Christmas that year. So obviously, there wasn't any reason for Catherine to go.

Thanks for the info, I hadn't realised this had already been discussed elsewhere.

I think the Clarences (or Sussexes) will have an announcement by end of 2018 and I think they will be house hunting not long after they marry.

Not a fan of hunting at all, but calling it violence would be wrong

She could certainly stay behind and read or do what she chooses. Many people don't go on the hunt. Kate has missed it in the past, especially when pregnant. Some people go along but don't hunt.

The hunting is not reserved for the men....the women don't just follow along. Kate has participated in hunts when not pregnant, even before they married went on hunting trips to Scotland. Her family is big in hunting, her and William have joined the Middletons I believe last year for a hunt after Christmas as well.

Some women may indeed choose not to take part in the hunting. But it certainly isn't a 'man's event'.

Nope not a man's event anymore. I know a lot of women who hunt (deer/moose/bear/elk/birds etc).

Catherine spent Christmas 2010 with Middletons. However, it's a different situation as William didn't even spend Christmas at Sandringham that year. It wouldn't have made sense for her to go alone rather than spend Christmas with her family who are in England.

Of course it is violent, but Meghan will have to get used to it. Its very much part of life in the RF at present...

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, General News Part 1: November 2017 -

And will continue to be for a long time. Itís part and parcel of country life, especially for owners of large estates. Whether one sees it as violence, past time or conservation, itís here to stay. Meghan wonít be forced to take part in anything she doesnít want to. Though she may well want to. Who knows? Shooting endangered elephants is very different from potting the odd grouse or two on a Scottish moor. Remember that the Royal Family pride themselves on being very self sufficient and the sale of their estate produce helps that along just as much as shooting for the table. If you have access to fresh game and other organic produce, youíre hardly likely not to use it. However you come by it.

It does highlight another of Meghanís future responsibilities however. If they do purchase a country estate, sheíll be expected to play a part in running it. And that can be a big enough challenge for those born to the purple let alone marrying into it. She wonít just be a working member of the Royal Family but a hostess expected to entertain in a certain style.

Here hunting is a natural part of conservation. I mentioned in another thread, we have over 1 million deer in MY state alone. They were brought back from almost non-existence in the early 1900's by careful management and that includes hunting. Annually around 100,000 deer are taken during hunting season...with a population of over 1 million it's a fraction of the number.

They started to re-introduce elk about 10 years ago. They are already able to have very limited hunts on them.

The same with wild turkey's ...huge population of them in my state now, brought back from very low numbers.

I don't think hosting will be a problem for her. They have a lot of dinner parties in Toronto high society. Granted, it's a different style, but if you can do well in one. Shouldn't be that big of a problem. She'll have guidance, I'm sure.

And honestly, I don't think Meghan will have a problem with hunting as long as it is done in a humane way. She, after all, is not a vegetarian. She eats meat. Someone had to kill it.
