Well then, we have a difference of opinion, don't we?

Meghan compliments Harry and Harry compliments Meghan. You don't see Prince Harry and his fiancee nor do you see Meghan Markle with Harry somewhere in the background. You see HarryandMeghan as a team.

Its not about a ring or the clothes but about what they do together and from what I've seen, what matters to one, matters to the other and they're a united front that is going to be formidable wherever they go.

So, when it comes to the Invictus Games, they'll be there taking in the entire e event and I'm looking forward to that. I loved the Toronto games.

BTW: there is a separate thread for discussing Meghan's fashions and looks.
Brilliant, well said

Actually clinging to someone for dear life really isn't an opinion. It's a matter of fact or not.

I think engagements like today show Meghan does have a lot to learn. Being an actress doesn’t equal being comfortable as a royal.

It was a good idea to get Meghan out and about before marriage to get her some experience. It’s still early days.

I think saying, that 'Meghan clings onto Harry' is unfair, when both of them are equally tactile. I don't get why some get so upset at handholding or touching each other's arm or back.

I think Meghan has been doing wonderfully from the start, and seems to get even more confident each engagement.

I don't mind how tactile they are with each other. It's rather charming to see IMO. I don't think it's excessive.

Not sure what you mean here. Meghan's fashion is one thing and we can agree to disagree on her style choices. But, in terms of interacting with the public and showing a genuine interest in the organizations they meet on engagements, I think she's killed it since day 1. Especially considering day 1 was literally 4 days after their engagement announcement.

I disagree. For me and I realise our opinions are subjective, but for me Meghan seems awkward it some pictures and videos. It’s like she’s either out of place or doesn’t know what to do.

As I stated in my previous post, it’s early days, and I’m glad Harry is giving Meghan an introduction to royal life.

This event was probably the most impressed I was with Meghan. This event was full of people Harry was quite familiar with and it showed. She managed to mingle and not look intimated despite being the odd one out at times. It could have been pretty awkward but she just went about showing her confidence in her new role.

She is still learning and will continue to grow with each engagement. I am glad they have all been quite different so she can really get a broad look at her new life. By the time IG rolls around again she will be in a different place as well. Nice engagement.

What do you mean? I saw no showing of her ring. Is there another video?

I didn’t see her showing off her ring but I did see the ring and it looked very loose. My thoughts were get that ring resized

She seems quite comfortable to me. And based on all the accounts we’ve had from people that we were there, they seem to think she’s comfortable too. Now, wasn’t she criticized at the Foundation forum by some as being TOO comfortable in sharing her opinion?

She's lost an awful lot of weight lately all round. And yes the ring looks loose though so long as it doesn't slip over Meghan's knuckle it should be all right. There'll be a wedding ring keeping it in place soon enough!

Btw I thought Meghan interacted well with the vets and others she met yesterday. Everyone seemed pleased to see her, she chatted and laughed with those she met. No sign of awkwardness at all that I could see. And she wasn't pushing herself on to people. Everyone seemed delighted to talk with both her and Harry.

I think Meghan has a good instinct on when to hold back a bit, and when to be more sociable, more open and forward, for the lack of better word. Emily Andrews complimented her on that, I think during the Birmingham visit, too, she knows when to learn and listen. I didn't see any awkwardness during this visit, at least the clips I saw.

Lets not forget this is on the job training and IMHO Meghan has shown she is ready and eager to work. People she has met mention that she knows who they are beforehand and she clearly does her homework. Like all newbies she will make mistakes, she will handle awkward moments but what is clear about MM is she learns quickly.

Also the very experienced royals make mistakes. That's very hard to be (completely) avoided.

I've read in a couple places that the Queen actually gets a kick out of things going wrong sometimes. It detracts from the everyday, boring and repetitious rote of events and brightens things up a little bit. Philip could always be counted on to throw something in the mix to stir things up.

Interesting, since I felt a certain tiredness (subdued energy) which may well be the case, given the recent flights to and from LA and then all the wedding preparations. So much pressure, especially on her. Cannot be easy. They need to have a pre-wedding vacation.

But then, it could also be because I am tired today. Ha! I am.
Why yes, actually, there were a number of videos. Here's the one I'm referring to for your elucidation. https://itnproductions.com/news/vide...rials?type=raw

The moment she walks into the gymnasium she has that ring on parade.
