It's obviously not a huge deal to get a Visa for moving to the U.K. ...lots of people do it even at least one current member of the BRF and not really that long ago. That won't be any sort of issue with that.

I don't know who the BRF ladies use for stylists or if they all have them or not. If Meghan does get one they will be pretty discreet though.

I wouldn't be surprised if Jessica continued to be her stylist for now, at least up until the wedding. She will need time to settle into London and make such choices. A private secretary and stylist will come. I am sure the secretary they will have some options for her. Meghan has some friends in London, possibly Jessica has some connections there, for a stylist. Though she will need some polish and a change for a royal, I don't see her going totally away from her personal tastes, and she will want someone who can marry the two.

Autumn was different for two reasons

1. She is a Canadian citizen. It is easier for a commonwealth citizen to get a visa to work in the UK.

2. She wasn't coming over as a partner. She came over on a work visa. She had been offered a job, and the job would have applied for the visa for her.



As for stylists we know Kate has one. Natasha Archer is well known to be her stylist. We see photos of her on royal tours, coming along as a personal assistant and stylist for Kate.

There's no way it will be a problem for Meghan to move to the U.K. I can't imagine anyone seriously thinks she will have a problem getting a Visa.

No one is suggesting it will be a problem, simply that it takes time. If a work visa it can be a matter of 2-4 weeks especially if like Autumn, you are a commonwealth citizen (think it took me 2 weeks but I was under a youth work visa so quicker). Its just a matter that its not 'okay my job is done lets move'. Its something that needs to be started before hand. If she wants to move just after Thanksgiving lets say, she should be already in process to be safe.

Could you elaborate? I was very late finding out about Meghan so the early reactions I don't know. Can you say what the reactions were and then how they have changed?

Meghan is not what Royal journalists are used to or expected as a bride for Harry. She is an older divorced American actress of mixed ancestry and very different from Harry's previous longterm girlfriends. Arbiter and Ingrid particularly seemed to dismiss the possibility of a serious relationship between H&M.
I think it took them awhile to become acclimated to the idea. Now that it has become obvious that it is serious the early skeptics are more positive-it would not be in their best interests to be otherwise.

When she's ready to move yhere everything will be seamless on that front. It will most likely be more of a hassle to get her belongings there!

Of course they may already have things in the works.

I think Ingrid and Dickie are hypocrites to be honest.

I don't see why Jessica couldn't continue to style Jessica. They could do a lot of work via Facetime and Skype.

What exactly is involved in getting the visa?

They certainly better have things in the works..... It may be seemless, but it takes time. Can you imagine the backlash that would come if it got out the queen stepped in and made it so she got a visa in 24 hours instead of the standard time it takes to process? The reality is paper work takes time. It may be simple paper work, but it takes times.

Thank you, O-H Anglophile! I see. People certainly are swooshing them towards an 'inevitable'. Hope this is not a Diana Redux. Decisions made because expected, not genuinely wanted or 'right' for those involved.

I think Meghan and Harry themselves are the ones driving this bus, not others expectations.

This situation is nothing at all like the C&D situation. No idea why that would even be brought up...

I would imagine they wouldn't want that to happen either. Meghan has gotten some sort of work Visa before so she should have a little bit of an idea how to go about it...of course she can get guidance the Visa process too if needed.

If they have already known the direction things are going my guess is they are paying attention to timelines etc.

I agree with O-H. Harry and Meghan are the ones driving this. I think Harry might be consulting KP, but he and Meghan are the ones calling the shots.

AGREE AGREE AGREE!!!

Meghan and Harry are like William and Kate: "us against the world" - meaning they are a unit and will only be driven by their decisions - not others.

That's the way it should be.

I really doubt Meghan would be that adamant about Jessica staying on as her stylist. To me, they always seemed to have a more casual relationship, like a friend offering her more informed opinion on what does/doesn't look good. And once Meghan moves to London, I imagine she'll need someone who is present, someone she can call and rely on more often.

There are so many major differences between the two, that I'm not sure what would give anyone the impression that this may be a Diana redux? The media, fans, royal watchers may be eagerly anticipating an engagement announcement but I've seen no reason to believe that Harry or Meghan would be influenced or pressured into doing something they didn't want or weren't ready for. The fact that they have chosen to be so public recently, defying a lot of people's expectations, tells me that they know what they want and are very much in control.

They are in the drivers seat no doubt about that. The media does get fussy and tries to control the story but Harry and Meghan are steering the ship.

I don't think anyone has ever expected anything from Harry and Meghan. She in no way would not marry him, if she wasn't in love with him, imo. She's not a naive 20 year old, she's an adult woman who's lived life, has had long lasting relationships, which ended. She doesn't 'need' to get married. And as for Harry, there'd be much easier choices for him, if he was pushed to get married. I have no doubt about this.

I'm mostly on "engagement watch " with these two. I have read 2 articles that suggests the announcement will come the end of November.
