I don't think Meghan dress like a teenager. She wears casual clothes and has a excelent body. 35 is not yet old age, why can not she dress as a young woman?

I tell you what!!! Everything Meghan wears and sales is selling out. That Beanie she wore a day or two ago, the company that makes and sales then is sold out.


And that ring she just bought, the company's website has had a major surge in visitors to their site. Once the photo was seen outline the company said that 2 hours later they were going crazy answers all the calls about it.

Meghan is a hit deep down!!

They aren't even engaged yet...and they might not want a big royal wedding. It's certainly not required.

I'm guilty of the Meghan Effect I love her shoes...I can definitely see why others are interested as well.I did read comments claiming she dresses more affordably than Kate right now only because she doesn't have Kate's "Taxpayers Budget" but I think even if she did she wouldn't spend as much...Her purses are VERY expensive though,even the Meghan Effect can't get me when it comes to purses! Hopefully we get a Meghan Fashion forum to talk about this on if this leads to engagement.

Ummm I don't think Kate has a taxpayer budget. It is my understanding Prince Charles pays for all her 'official' clothing out of his private funds.

Then you've been reading the rambling of morons. Taxpayers do not pay for a royal's wardrobe.

I'm sure that after Harry and Meghan's marriage (if there is one) there will be a couple of Meghan clothing threads. Looking forward to it.

As far as I know William pays for Kate's everyday clothing out of his private income, while Charles forks out for her 'official' wardrobe (for engagements) and a pretty penny it costs him, I'm sure!
(Of course the old argument always blows up from some that Charles's income from the Duchy is really 'the people's' money, but this is not the thread to discuss that! )

Meghan has money of her own but Charles will probably help out with the official wardrobe, as he does with Kate. I know we are getting VERY ahead of ourselves here!

I know she doesn't but some people claim the taxpayers pay for everything the Royal Family does...I don't actually believe she has a taxpayers budget...Just Mocking the DM comments.The usual excuse for hating Meghan I always hear is the "Taxpayers" don't want to pay for Meghan's lifestyle like they assume they will need to...

I'm not sure what would Meghan's official wardrobe will be like should there be a marriage between her and Harry. However, for her personal wardrobe, she's talked about mixing high end pieces with things that you just wear for fun. I remember she was on a show talking about fashion, and the hosts commented on how beautiful an embroidered top she was wearing in a pic she posted from her vacation. She said that one was from Forever 21, and there are times that you buy investment pieces, but there are times it's just a cheap pretty piece and you wear it a couple times and throw away. She definitely has some high end shoes, bags, and clothing, but this is definitely a girl that just cares about how the clothes look rather than the price tag. Of course, part of it is because she makes a nice living and have the disposable income to spend.

That view is a large part of why she's not likely to continue working post engagement; there is a perception of Royals as living off of taxpayer money, and for a member of the RF to also have a high paying job as a successful actress is going to look bad. However inaccurate the perception is, people will be questioning why their taxes are paying for the lifestyle of a woman who is making millions on TV.

That's not to say that Meghan is making millions off of Suits (I have no idea what she makes per episode) or that she would be living off of taxpayer money as Harry's wife. But the perception would easily be there.

I think this would be worse if she continued to work out of Toronto too. In that case, there actually would be an added cost to taxpayers because of the different security measures; the RPOs are paid through the Metropolitan Police Service. I'm not sure where the funds for general security at BP, KP, etc come from, but I'm going to make a guess that there is always a degree of security at the various royal palaces and residences regardless of who is living there, and that the security is just enhanced depending on who is living there. I'm also going to make a guess that it's less expensive to do security for 4 royals living at KP than it is to do security for 2 royals living at KP and 2 royals living somewhere else.

Living in Toronto makes it harder. The RPOs will likely still be paid for by the Met (and probably extra at that, because of the travel), but there will also be an RCMP detail and security at the Toronto residence. All so that Meghan can continue a career where she's making good money, judging by her handbags.

The upkeep of occupied Kensington Palace is paid by the State. The security is paid by the State. So part of Harry's and his future wife's lifestyle is paid by the State. There is also people that view the Crown Estate, Duchy of Lancaster and Cornwall money as State money because if the monarchy didn't exist anymore those sources of income would revert back to the Treasury most likely.

I have read that Meghan gets $75,000 for every episode of Suits in which she appears. I've also read that THe Tig earns her $100,000 a year in cash and kind. Does that sound about right?

That's the point.

It's not a designer fashion line. She didn't sell her designs to a store. She designed for the store. Anyone who has shopped in Canada will have seen reitmans. It is in every city. It's a lower end mall store. It's budget friendly and offers regular and plus size. Clothes for teens to seniors, budget and style wise. No the clothes are not expensive, and no they are nothing trendy or avant guarde. Because that isn't the market she is designing for. Put it this way. You can go into reitmans and buy an outfit, including accessories, for a hundred bucks.

People who want to dress like Meghan wouldn't buy her line. She doesn't wear her line. Not her market.

I have no idea, but if it's true she's making 1.3 million a year. Plus whatever she makes through Reitmans.

I'm not sure what she'd be paying in taxes though. She's definitely have to pay Canadian income taxes on what she earns from Suits and Reitmans. I'm not sure if she'd be paying US or Canadian income taxes for what she earns from Tig, or if she'd have to pay US taxes for Suits and Reitmans as well. It might depend on how much work she does in the US and how much she lives in the US vs living in Canada. She could easily be paying almost 50% of her income in taxes, depending on how she has it worked out.

Granted, taking home 50% of 1.3 million annually is still taking home a lot of money.

Not sure about The Tig, but that's her base earning for the show. If the show is broadcasting overseas, she also gets royalties from that. That is actually a very lucrative way to earn money, and a lot of times, it keeps the money flowing after the show stopped filming. Plus, her Reitman line earns her a pretty royalty as well I'm sure.

She would only be subject to taxation in one jurisdiction.

You sure about that?

American citizens who work in Canada either with production companies or as athletes are required to pay taxes in Canada if they make more than $15,000 annually in Canada or spend I believe more than half a year residing in Canada. Depending on how they have their income set up, what tax bracket they're in, and what province they're in, this can range from about 20% to 50% of their income in Canada.

American citizens are also required to file taxes in the US, regardless of whether or not they actually reside in the US. They can get tax credits for whatever taxes they end up paying outside of the US, but they still have to file and if the IRS decides they haven't paid enough taxes they have to pay taxes.

Meghan is going to have to pay taxes in Canada on any income for Suits and Reitmans, as she's working in Canada for that. She might not have to pay Canadian taxes for Tig, depending on how she has that set up. But she's also going to have to file taxes for the US, and potentially have to pay more if her tax credits don't cover all of what she owes. Which is possible; if she's making 1.3 million annually she's in the high end of the tax bracket for the US. Depending on how she has her Canadian income set up, she could be paying as low as 23% taxes in Canada, but in the US she'd be expected to pay 39%. She'd very likely have to pay the difference to the IRS.

newbie here

I'm guilty of the Meghan Effect too. I purchased one of her shirts from Reitman's, and a day or two later, her stuff was nearly sold out, with some left over XL sizes. She has good taste and as each day passes and she's wearing something cool, the designer will be mentioned and said item will sell out fast. She's becoming an alternative to Kate. Both great ladies, but with different fashion taste.

As long as Meghan's permanent residence is in Canada, she is only required to pay Canadian income tax. She does have to file in the US but under NAFTA, as long as she properly files, she doesn't pay extra. My brother in law and his twin are dual citizens. He doesn't own any property or reside in the US, never has, but still required to file every year. He doesn't pay extra taxes. His brother now lives there, but works in both countries, so his taxes harder.

But basically as long as her home is maintained in Toronto while working here, and she files every year, she only has to pay the Canadian taxes.
