We are getting ahead of ourselves here, but tiara wise, totally up to Meghan of course.
I'm sure that Meghan would be consulted and have input but the decision would not be hers totally.

No matter who the royal girlfriend or boyfriend is, when the news that they're dating emerges, everything and anything attached to that person becomes "of interest". Even down to the color of the diapers they wore and how long before they were potty trained.

Royal romances do not tend to be conducted in the public eye and the media goes with whatever they find and every little scrap of information is treated like its major breaking news. Example being "Meghan goes to yoga." Do you realize how many millions of people go to yoga? Of course, everyone has a family and basically its the "black sheep" or "eccentric" member of the extended family that is most likely to create a sensation. Anything to fill newspapers and magazines and top the other publications for "scoops".

I would bet my very last tomato section that if the media and information technology had been the way it is now and the reporters had little respect for the people they write about as they do now back in 1946, we'd really would have gotten an eyeful and had been clutching our pearls and grabbing for the smelling salts with what they'd come up with about "Phil the Greek". We know now how *that* romance turned out.

Of course not, Harry's own drug use didn't get him kicked out of the family. So that would of been silly.

Lord Frederick Windsor's admitted use of cocaine didn't get him kicked out either.

But anyway, its a long ways off yet before Meghan becomes part of The Firm

Whatever his behaviour might or might not be, Meghan's half brother hasn't spoken to her in a decade or more, seemingly since she was in her mid-teens. So they're pretty well strangers to each other.

Warm welcomes to The Royal Forums feyza.oz!! If you're talking about Harry and Meghan having a picture together out there, there has only been a couple of photographs around the middle of December when the two of them were out shopping for a Christmas tree in London. They have been very private and its driving people crazy.

I hope Meghan and Harry continue to stay under the radar. That would probably be most beneficial for their relationship. Besides, the tabs don't deserve anything good. Let them continue to try to create stories out of non-stories.

I don't think there's any comparison between Harry and the antics of Kate's family before she married William. Of course Harry was never going to get kicked out of the family. There was no guarantee that Kate would marry William, however. The fact that her uncle and his antics didn't prevent that from happening does quell the idea that Meghan's family will spell the end of her relationship with Harry. It's a more apropos comparison.

Well, I don't think it's a apropos comparison between taking drugs and a violent crime that involves a gun. There's been a few members of the BRF involved in the former, and thankfully none in recent history for the latter.

Let's just say Uncle Gary has a better chance at being invited to future family events than Mr. Markle...

I cannot believe people are comparing an uncle who did drugs (just like some members of the royal family) to a brother who violent incident that involves a gun of which one was arrested for.
That cannot be real

I personally only would compare the situations as cases, where neither Catherine nor Meghan shouldn't get called out, or tied to these adult men, as they can't in any way control their actions.

I didn't say the specific behaviors was comparable. The broader point was about family members ruining royal relationships. That wasn't the case for Will and Kate and it won't be for Harry and Meghan either. Whether or not Mr. Markle will be invited to family events is irrelevant to him having any impact on his half-sister's relationship.

Speaking of Meghan and her charity work

Does anyone have a link to Meghan's interview with Larry King? Someone told me it wasn't very good. Meghan didn't seem to know much about Rwanda and she mixed up what facts she did know.

I don't know if this is true but I'd like to watch it and judge for myself.

It's on youtube. And I thought she did a great job--She came across as articulate and thoughtful.

I thought she did well. I didn't fact check on Rwanda, but I don't think she appeared as not knowing facts about Rwanda. It was Saudi Arabia that she pivoted on. I think she's not familiar with that area, however her concentration has been with Rwanda in both UN and World Vision.

I didn't mean she wasn't articulate, by no good I meant she didn't really know her brief.

I'll watch the interview when i get home

D-list actress with glorified CV. Two months after Suits ending and she still does nothing.

And if she is that charitable, she could pay her own security. It is very easy to sit and write speaches, do something concrete, provide them food, clothes Meghan...

Edward's the Queen's son, and his wife got a "cut and paste" tiara. At the time, of course, they weren't expected to do royal duties. As Sophie's public role in the family grew, her tiaras got nicer.

Can you provide a source that shows what Meghan's CV actually looks like? Can you provide a credible list that names her as a D-list actress or is that your own description? Can you provide credible sources that list the extent of Meghan's charitable involvements? Can you provide a credible source that lists her private donations to charity?

We like to basically stick to facts around here.

BTW: The filming season for Suits just ended recently and will resume again for another season some time in the near future. I forget when.
