Oh my god, that yahoo Australia article is so stupid. If Harry elopes, he is basically giving up his position in the Royal Family. He loses in place in the succession, his kids are out of the succession.

Apparently Harry and Meghan have been calling each other "Husband" and "Wife" according to Meghan's big mouthed Nephew.
its fake news.....please can we not post known fake news sites. No Idea said that Meghan was pregnant then the next they said that Harry bought a 27 mill home. We need to start being more discerning about what news sites we post about. New Idea, Womans Day from AU are known fake sites.

If Kate can survive drug uncle Gary then Meghan can survive the broke distant relatives whom she has not spoken to in years.

^ Oh I know it's fake news trust me...I'm only pointing out what her nephew said,I disregarded everything else...I will never trust New Idea but I know the nephew part is legit.He is calling any magazine that will hear him.I don't believe the elope part,I put the link in specifics to his quote.

The sad part is that Meghan is probably talking to her parents and they are possible calling their family members trusting them to keep a secret or maybe even Meghan is trusting them but they keep talking...It's ridiculous...How can you be close to family you can't trust.Now we see why they rarely get a call from her.

She was sure proud of that turkey she made for Thanksgiving that she posted pics of!

I doubt it. At least noone on her mom's side has said anything at all, they have been impeccable.

Who trusts the opinion of a step sister in law??!!

They are not 'known fake sites' but sites that exaggerate their stories at times. At others they are known to 'break the news' e.g. it was NI that broke the news about Harry's first deployment to Afghanistan - weeks before the Drudge report that resulted in his withdrawal.

There are many accurate stories in both their magazines so it is wrong to call them 'fake' sites.

They both had the story of Kate's pregnancies before anyone else as well.

They have some very good sources, but in order to cover those sources, they both sometimes come up with 'false stories' just so that people won't think they have them.

The media has claim that Kate has been pregnant every single month since 2011. Magazine might once in a while get accurate information but they are known to make up stuff.

These magazines don't print false stuff to protect sources they take wild guesses. And use any source no matter how unreliable. And take a chance at the dart board. Once in a blue moon they hit the bulls eye. You ke predicting the young married royal is pregnant, you are bound to be tight eventually.

Meghan clearly eats sushi, she's not vegan.

There are so many bs stories going around, I doubt most of them. Her fathers side of the family seem like a mess, but it's interesting, that even with DM and other sources trying their best, nothing scandalous has come up.

Sooner or later it happens to all of us. We finally figure out that these people the magazines are writing about really don't matter overly much to the publications. What matters is the user base their stories generate and getting that first "once in a lifetime" private photo before anyone else does and earning a lot of money from doing it. Its exploitation at its best for the most part.

It also is part and parcel of living in the royal fishbowl and after extensively following the British royals for a few years, I've come to realize just what quite a few of the eligible royal bachelors meant when they said things like "I wanted her to be sure that she wanted to take me on" and take time before leaping into a marriage. We start to really realize the restrictions, the invasions of privacy and the constant glare of prying eyes everywhere along with the innuendos and exaggerated stories that are more fantasy than fact that these people have to endure day in and day out.

I think after a couple of months with this kind of a lifestyle, most of us would end up going screaming into the night waving our arms like a raving lunatic and baying at the moon. At least I know I would.

Exactly. And it occurs to me that the traditional "never explain, never complain" enables the tabloid tendency to embellish and plain make things up. If you know that the Palace isn't going to react if you conveniently "find" a source who'll tell you something marketable, or just plain make false claims, of course you're going to push the boundaries.

Honestly, I think most of the collective freak out from the press about the pushback from KP (and Andrew) is that if the Palace starts calling them on embellishments and straight up inventions, they can't get away with as much.

Every one of them has made some variation of "what happened to never explain, never complain?" when reporting on the recent statements. It is, IMO, an effort to push the royals back into the safe (for the press) box that allows the press to criticise and embellish without having to deal with any real defence from the royals.

It's a paradoxical situation in which the press are both afflicting the comfortable (for they certainly are that) and kicking down (for what else is giving someone a kick when they can't respond?). They've gotten too comfortable in that role and they're going to do everything in their power to push the royals back into that never complain/never explain zone.

Even if the royals start calling the press out, it won't be over every bs article. We have no clue if Meghan's nephew actually did speak to this tabloid, but no one's going to challenge a 'they jokingly call each other husband and wife' story, as it's not scandalous or harming, just intrusive.
Meghan's sister did call out Sun on their bs interview.

Looks like it. I can see them meeting for New Years Eve celebrations in Canada or the US, and maybe having a few days before Meghan goes to India.

Whatever about the extra non substanciated offerings in the press / social media, there is enough actual sightings of this pair to suggest a very serious relationship, at least at this point. They have both covered a lot of air miles to spend a couple of days together.

Yeah I don't think anyone can say it's a casual relationship. They can find casual where they live.

Does anyone recognize the airport? Looks like a bit of Detroit Metro to me.
