In one article I did read where she talks about it, she says she tends to eat mostly vegan during the week but on the weekend can go a little bit nuts and eat whatever. So I guess its an on again, off again kind of thing. She watches what she eats.

I've found myself kind of getting to be like that and have been limiting my meals to fruits and veggies and salads and still eat meat and just about everything else but watching what I eat more and more.

From a Canadian article 2 years ago:

"French fries – I could eat French fries all day. And I love pasta. I love carbs – who doesn’t love a carbohydrate? But of course, when I’m filming, I’m conscious of what I eat. I try to eat vegan during the week and then have a little bit more flexibility with what I dig into on the weekends. But at the same time, it’s all about balance. Because I work out the way I do, I don’t ever want to feel deprived. I feel that the second you do that is when you start to binge on things. It’s not a diet; it’s lifestyle eating."

Maybe its like being a little bit pregnant? Don't ask me. I've never considered going fully vegan or vegetarian. I love my moo too much. We head down our mountain and see a field of cows and hubby will roll down the window and yell "Run for your lives! She's armed with A1 sauce!" Of course when calving season hits, the fields are full of Whopper Jrs. I love a man with a sense of humor.

She does watch what she eats. Maybe she's a foodie then rather than a vegan but even eating vegan part time is a good reason to opt out of eating haggis if you ask me.

Meghan hasn't called herself a vegan though... she's saying her lifestyle is to not eat animal products during the week, but to be more flexible in the weekends - her "cheat" days. She's also spoken about how her go-to for dinner parties is a roast chicken, and at Thanksgiving last year bragged about her turkey roasting ability.

We need a thread which is all about Meghan - her eating habits, her clothes her family, whatever - anything which is not about her relationship with Harry.

This thread is a continuous MESS

But when we're debating her eating habits, clothes, family, etc, at least we aren't arguing about when the wedding will be, where the wedding will be, or how soon the first child will be born....

It will be at minimum 20-25 years before Harry is "eclipsed" by George, Charlotte and Cambridge #3. That is a long time IMO.

His preschool and toddler niece and nephew won't be replacing him. Yes, she's they are teens and dating, they will be the big news. But they won't be working royals for twenty years or more. And that is if they start fresh out of school. Thor dad and Harry are only now taking on full time duties in their thirties.

Twenty years is hardly before they know it

In both cases, the magazines were British magazines.

What is Meghan bring attention too? Some people may say herself? If she is trying to introduce herself to the British people, why an American magazine not a British one? Why such stylized photos? Why not use more realistic natural photos instead of barefoot in a gown?
she sure is a mess in that photo

Interesting article here--more supportive. Maybe the Telegraph is trying to get on the good side of the BRF for the future.

Don’t be angry at Meghan Markle for saying yes to a ‘frivolous’ fashion shoot

I feel like that's an awfully funny thing to get upset about. Everyone chooses their diet differently. For some it's a cruelty issue, for some it's a health issue, and then for some it's for other reasons. And to get mighty upset about something like this is quite silly.

BTW, are we really down to criticizing the girl for eating a vegan diet part time?

messy dirty hair, barefoot and a ball gown don't go together in my view, if she wanted to present herself as a future princess, please, wash your hair, apply makeup and put on shoes!

You do realize tousled hair is a fashion thing right? I'm not seeing anything other than hair on her head, so I'm not sure how you can tell it's dirty. Carolina Herrera is choking at your comment about her dress. And really? Bare foot is a problem? The whole look falls into a more playful theme. Jessica Diehl has done very well in styling Meghan. Obviously, she knows what she is doing as does Vanity Fair when it comes to fashion.

I don't believe that Meghan's hair was dirty. As for tousled hair, a ballroom gown and bare feet, that was probably a suggestion of the director of the VF shoot as something different, a bit of fun. What would have suited? Long white gloves, 1950s lipstick, tightly permed hair, a ballroom location...?
I thought Meghan looked lovely, myself.

Maybe she did the interview etc for her acting career ? The photos etc suggest acting career more than royal future. I'm not saying anything bad about her doing it but unsure why. I haven't be following it much so don't know if she is promoting any cause etc any talk about money donated etc

Perhaps add a girdle to the white gloves.

I don't think royal rob was criticizing Meghan's food choices- she was explaining how true vegans take issue with people who say they are vegan (not Meghan here, AFAIK she only said she tries to not eat animal products during the week as a diet choice) but use butter and wear leather. Real vegans avoid ALL animal products including things like honey.

They briefly discussed Suits at 100th episode and talked about her audition for Suits as well. But mostly about Meghan as a person. Vanity Fair isn't like People or US Weekly, they don't usually pay for exclusive interviews.

It is interesting to note that they avoided the topic of future except for that one comment Meghan made about one day she and Harry will have to come forward with their story. But just judging based on what we've seen from her actions, I highly doubt she's pursuing any acting beyond the current season of Suits.

Which is why I believe that this was a puff piece, designed to introduce Meghan to a wider public, with the IG coming up, and as a future fiancee and wife of Harry's.
