And if people like Meghan or Harry or any public figure doesn't let people know about anything, they are critised anyway, because surely there's something wrong and they don't want people to know!

There's no winning in this kind of situation.

As a fan of Suits before this relationship and having followed her on social media before this, I’ve never seen a picture of her with her significant other EVER on social media for the years that she was on there. That’s is rare, not only considering she didn’t know she would marry a British prince, but that is actually pretty rare for even normal folks.
Social media accounts are literally required by the television production company. She shared no more or less than the other actors on the show. It was a mixture of personal, promotional, charity and lifestyle which is standard for most television celebrities. She never shared or even talked about her boyfriend or even her former husband which is highly unusual regarding Hollywood relationship which are both romantic and strategic.

Meghan will be English in no time. Real English, not Madonna English. Lol

Speaking of staff parties, Meghan accompanied Harry to the Kensington Palace staff Christmas party on the evening of Wednesday, 12/13/17.

Over the next few months she'll likely have an awful lot of contact with the ones who work at Windsor or who handle special event planning. Her wedding is happening on their turf, after all. But yes, after that point she'll primarily deal with the KP staff.

Where has Meghan disappeared to? Seems very odd to introduce her to the British public for one day and then have her drop off the face of the planet. The vast majority of British people have no idea who she is, I'd have thought KP would've wanted to her to be seen much more than this at the beginning so people can get used to her.

It's not as if she'll never see her family again after she's married.

Kate had been subject to press attention for a decade before her engagement so there was less 'getting to know you' time required I suppose.

There’s more regional tours to come. I think the couple is busy with planning their wedding, planning their official diary and getting ready for the holidays at the moment.

I don't think it is that odd. Her having an engagement so soon was the more oddity. I assume she did a little travelling and now she back in the UK preparing for the holidays with the future in laws. We will see her this week and next. Not much of a withdrawal. There will be plenty of Meghan in the coming months and then years to come.

It's not that odd. I know many expressed shock her first walk about was so soon, and how she was just being thrown into it. She did very well. She left London for about a week after the Dec 1 engagement. Harry really has had many engagements since then that's appropriate for her to join. December and January are typically slow months for royal engagements. We'll see her later this week and next week for Christmas. After that she'll probably start showing up to more of Harry's engagements after New Year. If they are really planning a tour around UK, then some locations might have to be added to Harry's schedule depending on what is already on there.

Hopefully we’ll get a glimpse on way to luncheon. Looking forward to see the walk at church.

I think she's just extremely busy. Not only is the wedding in 5 months, which means wedding dress search is full on, all the other wedding planning. Added that she moved to UK just about a month ago, so she's settling that. She also has to study, learn a lot. She will be seen very soon, during the Christmas festivities. I just think her calender is absolutely packed, not much spare time, and what time she does have might be spent unwinding with Guy and Harry.

I never expected her to be seen much once she moved to the UK, except for official engagements.

I think she's had some of this planned in her head for awhile now...she's now putting things in motion.

Pretty much. I bet preparing for these holiday events have been stressful.

I don't believe knowing 'history of the UK' is a prerequisite. Not to any deep level. I don't remember any british royal having studied history. She certainly has a leg up on the religion front as well. Though yes she is being baptized, she certainly has relieved Christian education, having gone to Catholic school. And since her father is Episcopalian, the Anglican church shouldn't be too strange to her either.

But yes there is a lot of prep for the big Christmas event coming up. We know Sandringham Christmas is extremely structured for a family event.

We usually see the royals arrive for the luncheon. The only ones we don't, are those who live at Buckingham when in London, like the Wessexes.

Given her educational background, I would be shocked if she doesn't already know the basics of UK history. A lot of early US history is, obviously, connected with the colonization, particularly from the UK, not to mention any basic understanding of the American Revolution is going to explore the Enlightenment and Age of Reason, so she'd have learned a great deal about the political and economic philosophies of some of the English and Scottish greats from that period. And, in HS English classes, as well as her theater background, she is likely to have read at least a few Shakespearean works, including some of his historical plays. I know I read Henry IV my freshman year of HS (I'm about 7 years older than her but I went to HS in California, taking honors classes all four years in an IB program, so I have a fairly good idea of what her HS curriculum likely encompassed), and there was definitely some historical background that we learned just from reading that play.

With her double major in IR, she'll have also probably taken at least one, if not more, courses on Imperialism and you certainly will get a large dose of British history in any class on that topic. Same with 20th century & post-WWII classes, which would also be very relevant for an IR major (I planned on double majoring in history and communication but dropped my history major when the senior seminar/paper classes for both majors were scheduled at the same time at my small, private, liberal arts college, and my minor was in politics, so again, I feel like I have a relatively good idea of the types of courses she would have taken, especially history & politics, to complete her IR major).

My guess is the early UK history is probably the area she'd need to brush up on. Once you hit the Middle Ages and the Magna Carta, she probably has a good, broad knowledge of the UK's history if her education is much like what I had in HS and college.

As far as rehearsals go - I can't imagine they won't have at least one with all of the attendants, especially the children. And it won't hurt any of those children to miss a day or two of school (if there are any Canadian or US kids in the wedding party, they'll miss more than just one day of school because of the travel involved).

I'm sure we'll see enough of her, when she and H are married..
