No need to find it. I'll take your word for it. Now, when a guy kisses a girl full on the lips in the presence of her mother, you gotta know there's something serious going on there.

I do think that once the engagement becomes public and they're seen as a couple out and about in different places, we're going to see a lot of PDA between the two of them. These are two people that are going to revel in it and show the world how they feel about each other. I think they'll give Victoria and Daniel a run for the money. Right now V&D top my list of couples displaying their love for each other in public.

If this meeting between Harry, Meghan and the queen took place at BP it may have a bit nerve wracking for Meghan. She would have met not merely Harry's grandmother but the (ceremonial) head of state of the UK. A woman, by law, would grant permission for her grandson to marry her. This is somewhat of a job interview, or audition, if you will. Meghan probably made sure she got the protocol right (i.e. curtseying if required at that time). I know as Americans we are not suppose to curtseying or bow to a royal but if she is to marry into a royal house that function is part of the job description. Most importantly, Meghan would have to show the queen she does love Harry and she's not Wallis Simpson 2.0. The queen is of anther generation and I hope she sees that Meghan and Harry are happy together and she would an asset to the BRF.

I'm more apt to believe that if/when Meghan meets the Queen, it will be more along the lines of meeting Harry's grandmother than feeling like it was an audience with the Queen. After all, this is family and not a new ambassador presenting their credentials to the Queen.

It still would be a pretty anxious time I bet though but from everything I've read, the Queen has a knack for putting people at ease in her presence and I'd not put it past Harry to crack a joke or two.

Today, curtsying is not obligatory but is done by choice. I wouldn't be surprised if Meghan did or will curtsy to the Queen in the future as its is a way of showing respect. Americans don't *have* to do anything like curtsying or bowing but that doesn't mean that they can't if that is what they feel they want to do.

IF this 'Tea' did take place [and the timings really don't 'add up'] I'm sure it was nerve wracking, but HMQ is a past master at putting people at their ease, and has spent all her adult life doing so. Also Prince Harry will have been there [with his warm humour] to diffuse any awkwardness..

Private meetings are good first steps, but public meetings and presence offer more credibility. I think this is what a lot of people are waiting on. Meghan publicly showing up to an event or place where members of Harry’s family is also attending.

I would be surprised if any of that happened in a hurry.

Actually, I don't expect Meghan to be at any event or public engagement with any other members of the BRF until after a marriage takes place. We have to remember that when members of the BRF are out and about doing engagements, its "work" and not like meeting Aunt Flo for lunch.

Most we'll see is Meghan with Harry around places but I wouldn't even speculate on that happening until after an official engagement is announced.

Hello has a video of a motorcade that they claim is Meghan and Harry arriving back at KP after the meeting with HM. The motorcade does involve the type of vehicle that Richard Kay writes about, though of course there's no way to tell for sure.

Meghan Markle meets the Queen with Prince Harry at Buckingham Palace

I could not agree more!

I agree.

Most of the types of events that we saw Catherine and Chelsy at in the past are "rites of passage" that, by nature, have already occurred for Harry. His passing out, for example.

Since there's no sign of a Eugenie/Jack marriage on the horizon, the only thing I can think of that we might see Meghan at (if they're still together but not engaged/married yet) is if Harry were to be inducted into the Order of the Garter next year.

But there's a lot of "ifs" in that scenario.

Were Prince Harry to be made a Garter Knight next year it would increase the likelihood of St George's Chapel [the 'Garter Church'] being the choice of Wedding venue. #JustSaying...

I think because it's blacked out for privacy going back to KP and he states that usually the royals are not in blacked out cars. I assume they are still being discreet so as not to create any manic hysteria.

On the plus side, a bride with a cathedral train looks great (Lady Helen Taylor).

Westminster Abbey lends itself as a suitable venue if for no other reason the security services know the area well and which street grates need welding shut. It is a controllable situation for no other reason than they are used to it. On the minus side, it can make any bride that doesn't throw a suitable dress and train at it look a little insignificant and overwhelmed by the Abbey itself.
I would think Windsor would be fairly secure--security could shut down access like they did for Charlotte's christening and even Pippa's wedding.

Also, we are thankfully a generation removed from the need for a virgin bride. Poor Diana had to have her previous relationships dissected to show she was pure enough for Charles to take as a bride...

Everyone woman should wear white or whatever color they choose. The fact that Diana had to be a virgin but Charles had the right to sow his oats all over the world is ridiculous. The purity police against Meghan is also ridiculous. People have the right to live and love and make mistakes and if they are lucky found their soul mate.

Why would that determine the location? The Queen's children and William are all Garter Knight. Hasn't stopped them from marrying elsewhere.

It didn't say it WOULD, I said it would 'increase the likelihood'... [special associations etc etc.] HMQ's Children married where they did for specific reasons, as did the DoC

None of that increases the likelihood of St. George. It had the same chance as Harry not being a Garter Knight. Garter ceremony is garter ceremony and royal wedding is royal wedding. There is no connection between the two.

I agree. There does seem to be an established code for the royals' boyfriends/girlfriends that will be adhered to until there is an official announcement from BP. For example: Sophie and Kate were known as Edward and William's long term girlfriends, but they didn't really attend official events with the BRF until after the engagement announcement. Yes they might have been guests at private events ie: weddings, parties, etc...but never at high profile public engagements: Trooping the Color etc..
