You make some good points Rudolph. With all you've pointed out, if the marriage does happen, most likely it would be because, for Meghan, the positives would far outweigh the negatives and that the two of them have enough in common to be a united team but yet be able to maintain their own individualities. Perhaps Meghan would see giving up being an outspoken person on issues for the strength and stability of a home and family life as what she wants most in life.

We don't know. These are things that the couple themselves have to deal with and come to terms with and decide which way they both want to go. People and their priorities change as they get older and what might have worked in their 20s isn't on the top list of priorities in their 30s.

IMO it would be difficult for Harry to find anyone to marry. I've read many times that he should marry from 'his circles', but why would anyone from already that life style want to give up their freedom, privacy, any pulic voice or choice, to be accompanied by a security officer 24/7. He's a great guy, I'm sure, but all that would be just too much. William was lucky he met Kate during university years, they could build a strong connection relatively privately. Harry doesn't have that chance any more.

A lot of what Meghan talks about and blogs about may not seem controversial or political, but it is for a member of the royal family. The UN is a no-no for British royals. Too many toes to step on.

She could marry any other person in the world and just carry on but to marry Harry means a complete revamping of her life.

Plus Harry needs to be as sure as possible this marriage would last. The last thing he needs is a divorce, which is no biggie in Hollywood but still would be majorly frowned upon in royal circles.

You make good points and I have said the same I can't see it happening. But if they do marry I hope they are very very sure and have thought about future children and what would happen if there was a divorce. As I have said before here real life is not a fairy tale and in the Royal Family even less so

It's one of the main reasons why Harry is more protective over this relationship. Privacy is paramount for it to go far. They'll wander into the public once in a while, but they want to give a good go in private. Everyone should respect that.

I'm sure her Charity work is more important.I can't see a 35 year old woman who wants a family date ANYONE for fun for almost a year...She knows the deal of potentially marrying a Prince and she is still with him.I actually don't think her blog is an issue...I also think Meghan is the best option Harry has ever had and he wants kids too...He does not keep a girl around if he doesn't think she could handle the job...He has never had a GF already involved in international relations,Charity and Travel...If they break up,it will be Meghan doing it then we will start getting the Harry not letting go headlines and how he wants to give it another chance,the usual.He is a obvious clingy man so he is probably willing to level with her about the blog.

Everyone SHOULD, but [even here] not everyone does. Wanting 'one picture', or to know 'where they've been' or where 'they're going next', constitutes a desire to invade the privacy they need to develop and to see what their future [together or separately] might hold.
Let them 'be', and give them time, peace and privacy...

I don't think her social media accounts will be an issue if they get married. I follow Queen Rania of Jordan on Instagram and she posts pretty regularly. It's not like Meghan will never work again, since Harry wants to take on more responsibilities at the 'firm' and he's involved in lots of charities which is something Meghan wants to do more of. She'll have to do it in name of the Queen but it's charity work either way. Plus, her being an actress is a good thing since she won't be bothered by the photo ops and shaking hands with people who come to see the family. That's what Harry wants, someone who won't shy away from the attention. In the public eye, Harry will need someone who is more outgoing to match him the way Catherine matches William who is more reserved.

Lets add to your list that Harry's never had a girlfriend before that had her own spot in the public limelight already.

Just by going what we do know of the couple, it does seem like they have a lot in common, are happy to just spend time alone with each other out eyeball range (staying in, cooking, playing with the dogs), have passions in regards to "giving back" and supporting charitable functions, wants kids etc. I think there is more pointing to a successful relationship rather than one doomed to fail.

As far as blogging? For all we know, should they marry, I think she would give up her "single life" sites and who knows? Perhaps her expertise in doing this kind of thing would be an asset to the Royal Foundation of The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and The Duke and Duchess of Hogwarts. If Kate can take and release her own photography, why couldn't Meghan's talents be put to good use in a relevant way? All kinds of possibilities to be found if we want to look for them.

Right now, the relationship and how serious it may be is anyone's guess and we've been doing a lot of guessing so far.

I also think she's the right woman for Harry, I think she meets all the essential requirements to be his wife. The only thing she will have to leave is her acting career., but don't think that would be a problem, she has said in interviews that it is difficult for her to get good roles because of their ethnicity, Suits was luck, but the series It will not last forever. The blog I do not see problem either and she loves to do humanitarian work, next to Harry she can continue doing

Would it? Considering the number of divorces that occurs in all royal families, I don't think divorce is some sort of taboo in 2017.

LOL!! I agree.

Divorce is as now as common in Royal circles as tiaras. In the British Royal family alone there at three or four in the senior Royal line alone.

I like Harry and want his marriage(when it happens) to succeed. But other than the inevitable field day in the press that a Harry marital break would cause, it would blow eventually blow over..no big deal at all.

Very true. Meghan would be sacrificing way more than Diana, Camilla, Sarah, Sophie, or Catherine had to when they married. And the latter often has/had too much burden compared to their spouses, that burden would be multiplied in this case. I can't see her marrying Harry unless she is in a state of denial, of what that life would entail for her.

I just can't see how the two of them could be happy in the longterm, which is sad if they have genuine affection for each other.

Not all royal families but certainly common enough in the one he belongs to.

Her blog she may have to end, but there is nothing about her charity work that doesn't fit into royal life. She wouldn't be the first Royal to work with the UN, and if that isn't allowed by the British royals, she could do it with private charities. She would likely get along well with Mary or Mabel. I also could see her working a along side Harry with senteble.

IMO when he marries, there will be a move to separate from the Cambridges, the foundation. He and his wife will have their own direction, Harry won't be the tag along to the couple as a single man. We gave seen Harry has not shied away from discuss media and I see Meghan helping expand that. Maybe joining the ranks of royals with public accounts, and not simply the palace one

Folks, if she and Harry go far and things become official, I'm sure will understand that her acting career will have to stop. The good thing...her charitable and philanthropy work will be taken to the next level. Also, the young royals are more hands on with their work than previous royal generations.

Meghan will have to conform to the way the BRF do things not the other way around. If you think she'd be allowed to have a public social media account ( tweeting as Meghan?) you don't understand the Windsor way. Don't bother to mention the York girls. They aren't working royals.

As for separating from the Cambridges, that will come only after William is heir. There isn't enough money to go around right now. When Charles is king he can fund Harry to whatever level he chooses. William and Catherine's foundation will greatly expand once money comes through the Duchy of Cornwall.

I haven't seen anyone suggest her acting career could continue, simply her philanthropy work.

But that goes for any career. Any Royal bride, this close to the throne, is going to have to give up her career plain and simple. They will be expected to be royals. Likely another reason royals have trouble getting married. Not just the loss of privacy and such. But losing their own career and ambitions. It gets harder the longer they wait. Kate was in university when they began dating, and didn't seem to mind not having a career, working for her parents, to accommodate the relationship. She had no career to give up. But women in their thirties will have built careers, lives and such. How many women would want to ghee up years of education and work to cut ribbons? There is nothing hands on about what royals do. They aren't out building houses, or walking dogs at shelters, or serving at soup kitchens. They are still very much doing tours, shaking hands, attending parties. With the rare exception like Harry in Africa but that was considered private. Would someone who went through medical school be happy to give up her career, to tour a hospital and shake hands?

It is likely why you see the more educated/career brides are married to junior royals. There is the exception in Europe like maxima and Letizia and Mathilde who gave up careers, not simply jobs, to marry. But you see among non heirs, and defunct royal houses, brides who are factors, lawyers, professors, and so on. The heirs if Gloucester and Kent are married to a professor and pediatrician. The difference us these women can continue three career when they marry. They get to attend Royal events, and gave titles, but they live private lives.

Meghan isn't stupid. I'm pretty sure she's aware, that if this relationship becomes official, as in they get engaged, she will have to give up her acting career. She's already aware how limited acting roles are for her. She seems to be passionate about multiple other things though, the charities others have mentioned being one.

Exactly! No 35 year old woman is going to go into this type of a relationship with blinders on. She is aware of what she will be losing (and gaining!) and now I think it's all about her seeing if she can take the constant public scrutiny and the invasion of her privacy.

I doubt that Meghan prefers an unstable acting career than marrying Harry. From what I know of her personality, just think of becoming the wife of a prince and entering the English royalty, must leave her in a ecstasy. She is leonine, loves to appear and be the focus of attention (this is not a critic), before Harry hardly anyone knew her, now even in the North Pole know her lol lol

Harry decided to date entitled rich blondes who were not used to people bashing them and not having their way...Meghan has literally gotten death threats and brushed them off...There is a difference right there.One knows how crazy fandom,press and fangirls can get and the others weren't ready for it and never learned to be.She went to University basically majoring in how to deal with people and for communication skills,she is good at it...I have never taken a GF of Prince Harry so seriously because she is too good to be true a fit for the family.She already does the things a royal wife does and I'm sure she would come in working more than Kate (actually wanting to be there and communication skills) and that's enough for me.She was doing it before she met him,I don't know her personally but for her to still be with him he knows something we don't.He knows what he wants better than anyone else.
