They can ease to the relationship right now, with Meghan's filming break, and Harry's lax schedule. Getting used to the tabloids and paparazzi, while spending also time together privately. Meghan didn't bolt after the attention she got when visiting London. Harry didn't bolt due to chatty relatives. Interesting to see where it goes from here.

I doubt Harry will be part-time for much longer, though.
His duties will increase as the Queen and the Duke of Edinburgh scale back, so he'd better take advantage of his relative freedom now.

Kate was criticized for making herself available to William during their courtship, but otherwise, when would she have ever seen him?

Meghan will shortly be in a similar situation.
It may seem unfair, but someone will have to adapt, and Harry can't, at least not for long.

I think I'm in the minority, I knew of Meghan before because a lot of my friends on social media are Suits fans and also Mike/Rachel shippers so I saw a lot of her romantic scenes with Mike. I also knew her from her UN speech which was also widely shared on social media. I'm not her biggest fan but I loved her speech and her essay about being biracial long before her dating Harry was revealed. So now I'm shaking my head when I see old articles I read before being reprinted as if they are new.

And this is one reason they say she wants attention or using Harry. She had a life before him.

Yesssss--That was driving me up the wall! Everyone was so desperate for a story, they didn't care when or where it came from. Granted that's still happening

Charles married a divorcee.

Charles, Anne, and Andrew are all divorcees.

There are also a plethora of divorcees in the expanded family - the Lascelles family being the closest to the throne with the most divorces.

It is no longer 1936. It isn't even 1955. Times have changed, as have attitudes towards divorce. This is no longer an issue.

There's also been a new media story about this every week since the relationship came out. It's just beating a dead horse at this point--Anything for clicks!

I don't even get why they keep bringing the divorced status up...Of course he can! At 32 would Harry really find an inexperienced woman? Even more I'm almost sure he wouldn't want one! I think the Queen has learned if people married who they loved in her family they are less likely to divorce.Marrying with rules in the BRF has never worked.

He needs consent. But if anyone thinks that he would not get permission when the prince of Wales got permission to marry a divorcee they are stretching. If the queen and parliament has no problem with the future queen consort being a divorcee, then they certainly wouldn't have a problem with the future duchess of x (wife if the current fifth in line) being a divorcee.

It isn't correct though yo bring Andrew and Anne into this. Yes, both are divorcees, but neither are married to divorcees. Andrews has never remarried, and Tim has never married before. As sad as it us to say, those marrying into the family are held to different standards then the born member. And at the time Anne married, she had to marry in Scotland as it was not allowed in England. Fortunately that has changed.

But the article is click bait. Even more proof is the relied article. Didn't read it but title is about who will be king next, Charles or William drumming up ridiculous old arguments to get clicks. Ones either no basis at that.

So true or when reporters who spoke with her in June try to make it seem like an exclusive new interview. And of course Meghan is making them repost stuff??!! really like they can't do that themselves for extra clicks?

I'm thinking it would be a HUGE PR mistake if Harry was denied a permission to marry whom he wishes, as long as they're not criminal or hold any record like that. I doubt there's any dark secrets in Meghan's life, or the press would've found out about them already. A divorce, or the woman being 3 whole years older, or being American shouldn't be an issue, at all. But you're all right, these are click and bait articles, recycled for the 100th time too.

The Queen won't deny her permission. Harry can marry Meghan if he chooses. Other than the usual snobs who'll put their noses up at an American divorcee marrying into The Firm, all is good.

They just have to make a go of it.

I can't imagine Harry would be denied permission to marry Meghan.

I think for him to be denied to marry someone she would have to been very scandalous (a stripper...prostitute..porn star etc) or have been involved in something of that nature....perhaps if she was a multiple divorcee that might be cause but not with just one divorce from a young marriage.

Its even more unlikely they would deny her because now America is involved.Everyone everywhere would cry racism if an engagement was denied.Even though we know the Queen isn't racist it will be insinuated and it could bring down the monarchy even more...I don't see any way they can deny her...The biggest issue out of the 3 listed would probably be she is American but at the same time Autumn Phillips (Canadian) was too and was accepted into the family.So that being said If they give it a year the Queen would be thrilled with the idea of another wedding.

I think her being American isn't a concern at all. Many of the Noble families in the U.K. have Americans in their heritages. Prince William, future King, has Americans from his mother's side.

Her 'Americanism' is a non-issue.

Andrew married a woman he loved and perhaps still does. Anne married a man she loved(Mark Phillips)...all of HM's Lascelles cousins married for love.

I think love is the basis for any normal successful modern marriage. But for a Royal marriage it can't be and shouldn't be the only factor that is taken into consideration...simply an important one.

For generations, many if not most of the marriages undertaken "with rules" in the BRF were not only successful, they were happy.

The Queen at her age most likely doesn't care. She adores Harry and they seem to have a good relationship. She'll give her blessing and give them a beautiful wedding.

LaRae

I was trying to say out of her divorced status,her age and being American the one that could be an issue the most would have been her being American not understanding their culture but of course all are non issues in the end.I don't see any problem with his choice in GF but I have heard some British people complain about her not being an "English Rose".
