I think there used to be a rule about only married women wear tiaras...I have no idea if that holds true still or not. But if one is needed I'm betting she can borrow one!

All of these articles are emerging w/ the schedule for the days of Christmas that the Royal family follows - but I seem to recall they go to church 2Xs, once before breakfast and once after - am I remembering incorrectly?

US Weekly is saying that Meghan is visiting her mother in LA. I do think this favours the option of her being back in the UK for Christmas proper. ��

I just checked Debrett’s, and it still says that a woman first wears a tiara as a bride, so Meghan will have to settle for a sprig if holly in her hair this year.

She also won’t get her breakfast on a tray in her room until she’s a married woman. She’ll have to wander down to the dining room. Odd little traditions but it makes things different doesn’t it?

Tiaras were worn to dinner during the reign of George V on back, but I’m not sure The Queen has kept this going. I just think it’s just suits and dresses for Christmas dinner at Sandringham.

Princess Margaret worn tiaras before she was married.

That is true. For year, the public didn't know about that, so they would only catch the royal family walking to church for the later service. But now the earlier service is no longer a secret.

Is that applicable to unmarried men too? Because I'm having a hard time thinking they'll bring Harry's tray up, but not her. I'm sure in those day, the engaged couple didn't stay in the same room either.

They won't announce her specific movement on her private time. I imagine that might pose as a security risk.

I think the no tiaras rule applies to those marrying into the family not born princesses (although Máxima wore a small one to the wedding of Haakon and Mette Marit) and of course Carina Axelsson has been wearing one for quite some time now.

Based on Downton Abbey, my impression is that men are always expected to come down, whether married or not.

Men always eat their breakfast in the dining room in a traditional country house set up. They also aren’t waited upon and have to serve themselves from a buffet style breakfast. It’s considered bad form for a man to expect to be waited on at breakfast.

I also believe she isn't in the UK right now. I think she would have attended the van Steubenzee carol service if she was.

Meghan Markle Is Back in L.A.: How She Keeps in Touch With Prince Harry | E! News Canada

Seems a few sources saying she is in the US. Suggestions of course Christmas in the UK (breaking the have to be married barrier for the first time), and a vacation after Christmas. Honestly still waiting for confirmation from an actual source on the Christmas thing.

Of course the Fail would try and spin it to look like Harry is hooking up with ex. Only engaged less then two weeks and they are already trying to start talk.

Both Harry and Cress seem to have found the right people. But of course any time their other half is not glued to them, rumors must be spread

WOW. If that’s true it’s nice she’s spending time with her mum.

It looks like their relationship is continuing on as it always has. They love being together yet they each feel comfortable doing things individually. The only thing different now is that when they're apart, Harry knows that Meghan is going to be coming home as will she have that same assurance.

Neither one of these two people need to lean on each other to guide them or be the center of their world. I find it very healthy and indicative of a strong relationship.

I think it's great, that Meghan is visiting her mother and friends now. She's locating her life to UK, most likely will spend Christmas in UK, so she'll need this time with her family and friends.

This is true of course. Even on this board within days of the engagement announcement, members were speculating about pre-nups and breakups in two to three years.

It is very good to see a newly engaged couple acting in a "normal" way. They are not joined at the hip so they both can do what needs doing.

As to the speculation about the Memorial Carol Service (what a wonderful way to raise money and remember someone), I think it was not the sort of engagement that would suit a newly engaged couple to be seen by newly crazed media and fans.

I wouldn't mind betting the first outing blew the socks off both BP and Clarence House. Even Harry looked a little surprised initially. But that was surely a trial by fire and a tribute to Meghan as to her ability to function under pressure. That is not to say that when she got home an exhausted Meghan didn't kick off her shoes, flop on the sofa and say "what the hell was that? I think I got run over by a freight train (in the nicest possible way of course)!

Most of this is speculation and information that most of us know about the residents of KP. However, Click on the link to see the photo of Prince and Princess Michael of Kent looming over their neighbors.

Exactly. While she's gone to an official engagement with Harry. She's still considered private citizen at this point. Probably the last time in awhile she'll be able to be in US for extended period of time without people get up in arms about it.

It doesn't surprise me that Meghan is in LA. Although how she got in without being photographed is impressive! Harry and Meghan both seem like independent people, so its not surprising she is taking some time to spend with her friends and family. Once the NY starts and wedding planning truly gets started, it will be harder for her to go back and forth.
