I thought it obvious too, which is why I was surprised that some posters felt that her high profile as PH's girlfriend would not increase her acting prospects. It has nothing to do with her acting capabilities (which I know nothing of), but I do not think that Hollywood players would pass up a chance to have the publicity of PH's ex associated with their project.

I just looked the daily mail app to see something about them got to number 50 and have up. Much more important things I guess I'm in Australia so have other news

No matter what, associations and disassociations will always be part and parcel that make up the life story of a person. Should Amal someday divorce George Clooney, she will forever more be associated as being his ex. Its the same the world over. What impact on a person's life that has depends on the individual themselves.

Personally, I'm happy that things have died down and more important news has become a focus except for those that actively enjoy every little tidbit about Harry and Meghan they can find. One thing for sure is that Harry and Meghan themselves aren't doing anything themselves to fan the flames to keep gossip alive and flourishing.

Just to clarify, all the information on this relationship, I get from this thread right here. I don't go looking for it elsewhere and don't feel the need to.

The less news about them the better for me
If anyone is silly enough to read the comments on any article on the DM your going to find rubbish unless it's changed in the last couple of years which is when I gave up looking

If Meghan was an A-list movie star like Jennifer Lawrence, Natalie Portman, or even Emma Stone, would she still have to give up her acting career upon marrying Harry?

Would the public respect/like her better if she was a more established and esteemed actress?

Wouldn't matter if she was Jennifer Aniston. It's how the BRF do things. The wife of senior royals is expected to work for 'The Firm'.

Yeah, I don't have the Daily Mail app, so I have no idea how news is packaged on that platform. But I'm in the US and we've just elevated a demagogue to the highest office in the land, so I totally agree: there are far more important things to worry about.

I will say that I've noticed that the Daily Mail's readership seems to LOVE the new US President about as much as they loathe Meghan and Harry as a couple.

If thats the case then I can't see why any self-respecting woman with a career would marry a royal :/

My thoughts exactly. As privileged as Harry is, I almost feel bad for him. Being his wife - with all the scrutiny and criticism and the constraints on personal freedom - is a very, very hard sell. His last two girlfriends decided it wasn't worth the trouble.

Well, I suppose you'd have to ask Crown Princess Mary of Denmark (real estate and conveyencing) Queen Maxima of the Netherlands (International banking) Sophie of Wessex who had her own PR firm, Queen Mathilde of Belgium (speech therapist) and Queen Letizia of Spain (journalist and high profile news anchor) that question. Also Grace Kelly had a huge stellar career as an actress, which she gave up. I guess they all fell in love, wanted to marry, and also thought they just might be able to make a difference to people's lives by adopting various charities and causes within their husband's country.

We don't know what broke up Harry's two previous serious romances. He and Chelsy were very young when they dated, but the romance was always tempestuous. They had a huge fight when on holiday at the beginning of 2009 and the relationship degenerated in the two years afterwards into fights, separations and reconciliations until it died.

It's become perceived wisdom that it was Chelsy who walked away because she didn't want a Royal life but that's by no means certain.

The way the original story broke about the Cressida Harry split was equally ambiguous. It read as if Harry found her needy and the relationship constricting in the People article which broke the news.

You would think the press would give him a break. Of course they won't get total privacy and that was not the reason for the statement. But the complete overreaction has been bonkers. If Meghan is his non-negotiable I hope they can weather the storm. If there is someone else for Harry I hope they know all that they are in for. I suspect that Harry and Meghan will do what alot of famous couples do and just totally retract from the public and go totally underground so that the press will start wondering if they are still together......just hit the reset button.

The British Royal family is an entirely different animal than the Scandinavian Houses, though - it's the most famed, most visible Royal house in the world. Every single one of the women you mentioned could walk down High Street unnoticed - the same cannot be said for Kate Middleton, for example. The level of scrutiny that senior royals face is unparralleled. And while it's true that no one knows exactly why Harry's last two relationships fell apart, it's clear that Cressida and Chelsy were both very unhappy with the press scrutiny that came with being with Harry. The Telegraph UK (I think) reported that right after the Cressida break up, members of the press were invited to a meet with Harry's aides - he wanted advice on how to better navigate the media exposure/personal relationship equation. That says volumes imo about the pressure the media brings to bear on Harry's private life.

I'm not saying that Harry's status makes romance impossible - just very, very difficult.

Apart from some people on this forum I don't think many care what their doing. At first it was all exciting who is she what does she do etc but I think now most people think there are much more important things happening. Unless there is an engagement I don't think anyone much is going crazy.

The crazy is mostly at the DM. I think the more Harry immerses himself in work the less obsessive the tabloids will be. The tabloids just want content so the more content they get focusing on Harry's wonderful projects the less rabid attention will be put on dissecting Meghan, her family or their relationship.

A part of me thinks he issued that statement as a show of solidarity - aside from the dog whistle racism, the press had tried to link some of Meghan's scenes on Suits to a porn site and I guess that was the last straw. I just have this sense that he wanted her (and the rest of the world) to know that he he's got her back. And I think it was a lovely thing to do. I'm with you: If Meghan's the right one, then I do hope they can make a go of it.

I think they're trying to make a good go at it, so they're trying to keep things private. I do wonder if they'll make a big public appearance this year though? With the social season around the corner...polo, football games etc.

I agree the reaction was totally crazy and I'm sure when Meghan saw how her mother was being attacked she was highly upset, I was upset for her. Likewise I think that Harry had flashbacks to his childhood and his mother, also while his former relationships did not end just because of the media, the media certainly did not help and made things worst. Ultimately I root for Harry to find the happiness that he wants out of life.

Yes, Meghan has gone way underground. It's been over a month since she's posted anything to her personal Instagram. So maybe they're trying to keep things as private as they can.
