She's dating a senior member of the British Royal Family. As such, they'd be expected to be British. Not dual citizen of US and Britain. So while a private individual can maintain both citizenships if they wish, it's unlikely to be Meghan's case if she marries Harry.
The link I posted answered my question. I am not going to debate this. Until it is proven otherwise, I'll go by what I saw online and wait and see what happens after the wedding if there is a wedding.

Currently, she is now just as Kate. According to many posters here, she is young and accomplished woman, with work ethics. Now, I just see someone who stopped almost all her daily activities except recicled articles from the Thig or some recocled photo... she sits behind the closed doors for 2 months with him and waits for the ring...Stooped her life, but he didn't do the same.

I know most will tell she wants to see how life is doing with him but that is really never garantee for anything...

One outdoor person who enjoys life now is waity Meghan...

I am not bih fan of her at all but I see a grown woman who stopped her life... she should continue her life as same as before until the official engagement...

Two months, (if it is two months, as Meghan's trip to India interceded in the middle) is hardly years and years of waiting around.

Meghan's on hiatus from her TV series, along with her fellow actors comprising the rest of the cast. It's not unusual when employed on a TV series to work intensively for several months and then finish and have a break. Meghan will return to The Tig, and to Suits and to the new Collection for Reitman's stores shortly. She begins filming again in April. That's the shooting schedule of a television series. The rest of the cast are also having a break.

If Meghan doesn't return to Canada and shooting at the beginning of April and there is no engagement to justify such a change, then you will have a point. Until then she's living her life pretty well as she has since joining Suits.

Oh wow she quit her television show? She closed down tig? She quit works vision and UN? You have to share your induce source please. I mean it must be a major insider

Oh wait what was that.....oh I heard this funny rumor that shows do this thing called filming seasons, and her show hasn't started filming. I could be wrong, I am not an actress, but I am quite sure her show starts filming in March. Oh and that she is under contract for at least this coming season.

I must be hallucinating because I am pretty sure there have been new posts on the tig since December. But must be my imagination as you say she has abandoned that. Oh wait, I believe there has been about fourteen since Christmas, not counting the two that are reposted from 2015.

Oh and those photos of her in India with either vision must have been faked. I mean a look alike must have been in India.

As for her fashion line, how could she possibly do that from London. Impossible.


You are right, she is a waits Meghan, no job, no life, she us leeching off Harry

It is worth remembering that the only "source" with any reliability in connection with news of an engagement will be Buckingham Palace.

Please note that discussion on the issue of tax, income, expenses etc have been deleted since this thread relates to Harry's relationship and not finances.

Why would she be waiting for anything?

I don't know where this 'two months' is coming from. We are only halfway through February and we know Meghan and Harry were not together at Christmas. That makes about six weeks at the most if we disregard Meghan's trip to India.

She's on hiatus from filming as I said in my last post and she's staying with Harry and they are learning to live together and share their lives. I think it's fantastic.

Meghan has probably been to various parts of England with her boyfriend. Just because they haven't been photographed doesn't mean they've been hanging around 24/7 inside Nott Cott.

They've been to Norway, Harry has friends he sails with in the summer in Cornwall, they may have visited them. They could have been in Norfolk or in Scotland. No tabloid would be tracking them 24/7. Harry bobbed up at Birkhall after Christmas when no-one knew he was there. It's the same with all the royals. We see about 1% of their private lives and don't know what they do the rest of the time.

It's ridiculous, IMHO, to suggest that because Suits isn't filming at the moment that Meghan is 'hiding away' and wasting her time. Has she been at Nott Cott for a year not doing anything, two years, three? No. So, sorry AmberG, but your statements have no foundation.

I had to laugh at this as I picture Meghan sitting in a room at Nott Cott in a rocking chair going back and forth and back and forth with tea cups and various other things just piling up on the table besides her. Throw in a Aran wool afghan over her and we have a clear, concise picture of um... someone waiting.

One of the blessings of living within Kensington Palace grounds is that it is quite easy to transport in and out of there without being noticed. As been already stated, neither Harry or Meghan are people that seem to like to live in the vegetative state, they've probably been out and about many places. They've just been able to do it under the radar.

Its totally silly to think that just because we don't see them, they're sequestered behind locked doors.

She would (as far as UK is concerned) cease to be a celebrity and become a public figure - that is why expectations would be high.

Frankly, you don't have to agree but an alternative perspective from experienced royal followers (rather than 'fans') is worth considering.

That's if, of course, she ever marries him.
Correct me if I'm wrong, but didn't Maxima keep her Argentinian citizenship after marrying Willem-Alexander ? What about Mary Donaldson, is she still an Australian citizen ?

I'm not sure how the UK handles dual citizenship, but AFAIK (again I may be wrong), a US citizen loses his/her US citizenship only if he/she applies voluntarily for citizenship of another country with the intent of giving up his/her US citizenship. I know that is a little bit vague, but, in practical terms, people who acquire a foreign nationality by marriage , as it would be the case for Meghan, normally do not automatically risk losing US nationality.

Maybe someone more knowledgeable can add further information on the topic.

Mary had to gave up her Australian and British citizenship when she got married

This might be OT but this deals with their relationship

I believe the US have different laws regarding taxes as it regards to their citizenship than Argentina. If Harry and Meghan gets married and she make the choice to keep her American citizenship. The IRS requires her and Harry to provide his financial information as he is a spouse of an American citizen. Now he might not have to if they don't hold joint accounts and she doesn't file certain deductions.

It's the perception. Keeping her American citizenship when married to a British prince will cause a lot of people (including the press) to question Meghan's commitment to her new country.

So even if she's not required by law, it would be smart thing to do to avoid any grief.

Guys,

She's not sitting in the man's house and waiting for an engagement ring. What year is this? The 1600's?. The couple is just spend quality time together. It's the folks on the net that's rushing for an engagement.

If someone has committed to something and is doing a good job at it why should their citizenship matter? Today, there are volunteers all over this world who are committed to doing good work in countries that are not of their place of birth. Kudos to them for their generosity.

IMO, it doesn't matter what Meghan does there are people, including the press who will find something to pick at, just by dating Harry has shown that. People have complained she's out doing pap strolls, while others complain that she's hiding away behind palace doors. As a person with dual citizenship, I would not be bothered either way with Meghan's citizenship. If Meghan was to become a member of the BRF, as long as she does a good job is all the commitment that should matter.

I really hate comparing Meghan and Kate, just because they are so different and in different stages of their life when they are royal girlfriends.

Spending less than two months in a different country with your boyfriend is hardly waity anything. She still has a job, which she is only on hiatus from right now. Once the show starts filming, they live in separate countries and it's harder to see each other than normal dating couples because they both have commitments in different countries. While she's in London, The Tig's social media is still updated on a daily basis, it's just her personal social media that's been quiet with good reasons. She still keeps her commitment to her charitable work. She went to India, and I'm sure there are work in advance that she had to do behind the scenes. She's talked about being more involved with UN than just what the public sees in the past. Actually knowing what she's talking about before going overseas for a trip is important to her.

This is getting to the point where I don't see why she would want to get anymore serious with Harry. She's damned if she works, it means she's not committed to him as much as she's committed to her job. She's damn if she doesn't, spending less than two months with her boyfriend whom she can't just go over to see after a day's work means she's given up her whole life and just waiting around for him.

Welcome, to the world of royal watching. Women dating/married to royal men are treated in the most vile way by the media and the keyboard warriors. Everything they say, do, and wear is bashed. How they smile is bashed, how they grasp their hands is bashed. Then to add the cherry-on-top the women are pitted against each other.

It's a very misogynistic fandom. If you are a fan of any of these women, or even just think they deserve basic human respect, you're going to want to tear your hair out 90% of the time. Meghan will need to have the thick skin of a rhino, or she will need to avoid reading anything about herself and stay offline. Otherwise she'll drown in the ugliness, and run for the hills like previous women.
