Charles and Diana: engaged in February 1981, married the following July
Charles and Camilla: engagement announced February 2005, married the following April
William and Kate: engagement announced November 2010, married the following April
Anne and Mark: engaged May 1973, married the following November
Anne and Tim: I can't find when their engagement was announced, but as her divorce wasn't finalized until April 1992 and she and Tim married the following December, I'm thinking it happened sometime between April and December
Peter and Autumn: engagement announced July 2007, married April 2008
Zara and Mike: engagement announced December 2010, married the following July
Andrew and Sarah: engaged in February 1986, announced in March, and married in July
Edward and Sophie: engagement announced January 1999, married the following June

One thing to note is that many of the engagements may have occurred well before they were announced; we know when Charles proposed to Diana and when Andrew proposed to Sarah, but for some of the others they may have been engaged for some time before the engagement was announced publicly.

I think if Harry and Meghan become engaged this year, a public announcement won't happen until after her commitments to Suits are finished.
Yes, I know royal weddings tend to happen quickly after an engagement. What I had meant was that I think it would be unlikely for them to get both engaged and married this year. I don't particularly see an engagement happening until fall of this year (at the earliest). On the off chance they do get engaged end of summer/fall, I would have doubts that they would then get married before the year's end, especially with the invictus games in the fall and then the holidays taking up a lot of December. I would think early 2018 would be most likely.

I thought it took 3-4 months to plan a royal wedding that's the only reason I said late this year...Usually people date for a year and have a 5 month engagement.It depends on the couple I guess...Just going with the usual royal wedding every 6 years and since Will and Kate's was 2011 I figured this was Harry's year.The Royal Family just seems very timed to me so I was fully expecting a 2017 wedding.If not by Harry,Eugenie maybe...If someone doesn't get married this year I'll be shocked!

I am sorry but they are not going to push Harry or Eugenie to get married to keep to some sux year pattern. besides the average for dating before engagement is not a year and you mentioned, but three years.

Not sure if this is the right forum for this question but if Meghan decided to go to Wimbledon again this year do you think she would be able to bring Harry or would he not come because of all the attention they might get? I'm just really hoping for an official outing and the next big thing is Wimbledon but has Harry even gone with anyone other than his family before? I know they will when they are ready but I think Kate was at last year's Wimbledon so there is some sort of hope another Royal will show this year.

Apologies, Jacknch.

On the issue of Wimbledon - I'm not sure if Harry typically attends, but it's fairly common for members of the BRF to attend. I believe Kate frequently attends, and Prince Michael is a patron of it.

I believe Harry has attended sporting events with girlfriends in the past, so I would expect to see Harry and Meghan attend some together at some point. She's a fan of Wimbledon and he'll have access to the Royal Box.

Wimbledon is pretty high profile. They would sit in the royal box and the tabloids will have a field day

I think a first outing together is more likely to be a wedding or polo match. I don't really know how he did this sort of thing in the past.

I think Harry and Cressida went to a concert together.

I almost feel like they'll appear somewhere together soon, just to stop the 24/7 hounding of them by the press. Of course the press will always want pictures of them together, but if they get a couple of good shots of them (because let's face it, the pics from the Sun were awful quality), maybe their attempts won't be quite so unrelenting.

Fair point. Nonstop speculation just leads to people being desperate to find out more. If they are seen together more frequently, eventually the pics would probably sell for less since they won't be so hard to find.

If they went to Wimbledon [having not appeared A LOT in Public before then] it would be HIGHLY insensitive to the players whose Match they attend. They will inevitably be the centre of attention, rather than the two players. I think the All England club organisers, and 'the Palace' would quash that idea.

Prince Michael isn't anything with Wimbledon. The Queen was patron and now it's Kate. The Duke of Kent is President. Harry has never attended a tennis match before. Rugby and Soccer - Yes. Tennis-no. Meghan was in Serena Williams's personal box last year's Wimbledon.

You're completely right, Skippy. I don't know why I thought it was Prince Michael - must have him on the brain.

I don't think attending a match would be disrespectful to the players at all. The coverage of the match and the coverage of Harry's love life is going to be done by different sets of press and appear in different sections of the paper. There are always pictures of who was in the crowd at Wimbledon, making me think they probably have photographers whose job it is to take pictures of the crowd.

I thought about it and I think if Harry did decide to go it would be a loss for him anyway in the tabloids...A Royal Girlfriend in the Royal Box would be looked down on and If she went and had a regular seat he would be bashed for not having her in the Royal Box.I know she likes tennis so if she goes I hope she isn't bashed for it this year.That brings me to the Invictus Games...They supposedly met over Meghan wanting to volunteer for it but then it turned into a relationship...Would Meghan be able to volunteer or would that turn into a field day for the press as well and take away from the games if they are still together? If it was possible what kind of role could she possibly have in it unless she is working behind the scenes...I just can't see her being able to do the Invictus Games in September anymore as a Royal Girlfriend...It's possible Paps from the UK will even follow them there for a photographers field day...I'm almost sure paps have followed Harry and Chelsy to South Africa before...The outings I had hoped for are sounding unlikely now.It suddenly makes so much sense why Harry always hides his women the best he can.Invictus is just too big of an event in my opinion for her to have an open role in it.

Well this answers my Invictus question...I think the press would follow her and I hope she is a strong woman and can handle what's coming
to her.

Why would she be looked down upon for being in the Royal Box? Because she's the girlfriend of a royal? Non-royals are allowed in the Royal Box and frequently attend Wimbledon there (Kate's family has often been photographed there).

Invictus is different and would be inappropriate. Invictus is an official event for Harry, and to have his girlfriend there... it's not an issue of the paps and what not having a field day so much as he shouldn't be bringing his girlfriend (not herself a part of the Royal Family) on official engagements.

Harry hasn't always hidden his girlfriends; he has always been very careful at protecting his private life and has guarded his relationships, but he didn't completely hide them away. He and Chelsy attended a number of public events while together, and after the first photos of him and Cressda leaked they were photographed together in public a number of times as well.

Harry's not going to hide his relationship with Meghan forever. He's not stupid, he knows they're going to be photographed when in public. I think the fact is more that the time of year (resulting in people being bundled up while outside) and the relationship being long distance (resulting in them not being in the same place at the same time as much) has lead to fewer opportunities for them to be photographed in public.

I do think it's possible that Meghan will attend the Invictus games at some point. Is he might go to one of the competitions.

Yeah, I agree. I could easily see her attending a portion of the event.

If she wearing a volunteer uniform with a bunch of other volunteers directing spectators to the venues or helping the athletes behind the scenes, the press probably would not even notice her. If she is just hanging out with Harry watching the events then she is going to get photographed but hanging out with Harry isn't really volunteering at the event.
