As an FYI, I saw a couple of videos with other members of the cast (one with Gabriel () and another with Rick and Sarah (). According to the answer they gave in the Q&A, they're going back in April to begin filming season 7.

Gabriel actually also addressed the "what do actors do when they're on hiatus" and it was exactly as posters here have said: spend time relaxing and with their families/friends/SOs. He was also quite adamant about not shaving during his hiatus (people complained about his beard), but I suspect that part won't apply to Meghan.

It's a very misogynist 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.
This is so true about the fandom. Women are just held to an unfair standard here, sociologists would have a field day studying the strain of anti-feminism, extreme conservatism, even petty jealousy of some royal watchers. These harsh criticisms are true of Meghan, were true for Catherine, were worse for others like Sweden's Princess Sofia, but even those born into this life are not spared--Charlotte Casiraghi is just one example.

Funny thing about Meghan, hated her Rachel character but she seems likable with a good head on her shoulders and the independent, hardworking bit of her makes her the most relatable royal SO yet that I can't help but root for her. Anyway, at this point I think even if the Virgin Mary were the one in a relationship with a popular royal, some people would still find an off tangent reason to be critical. As Confucius once said, haters gonna hate lol.

I just think he can do much better. Grace Kelly was born a Main Line society member. She was also a star during the Golden Age when stars acted and kept their views to themselves. This generation....yeesh.. He can obviously date whomever he wishes, but if they got engaged I would not watch anything about them or the wedding and would focus my following on William and Catherine only. I do not care for her or her family. I cringe thinking the church would be filled with Hollywood people and her father and brother out there in the media pretending they are now Astors and Rockefellers...

How about who filled Westminster Abbey during the Cambridge nuptials...footballers, badly dressed starlets? I didn't spot any Astors or Rockefellers in the group.


How on earth could Harry's guest list be more "cringeworthy?"

Grace Kelly for all her upbringing was far from perfect she had alot of affairs with married men in her day. Her relationship with her father was mentally abusive and her marriage was not a happy one. Still she is an iconic and beloved HUMAN figure. The thing is all these people you put on a pedestal are human just like Meghan and her family are. One group has the money to HIDE their faults while the other does not. Also Meghan and her HALF brother are not close so I doubt he will be invited.

Grace van Cutsem, a bridesmaid, daughter of Rose Astor, is a direct descendant of Waldorf Astor, 2nd Viscount Astor

If you think the royal wedding guest list was 'cringeworthy' you should maybe go over it again. Nothing but the 'Great and the Good'

Thanks, but I watched it live. It was a beautiful ceremony as I remember. But among the "great and good" on the guest list was also an inordinate number(IMO) of TV starlets and footballers and nouveau riche society types-in hideous fascinators of of course- unknown outside of Britain

My point to Lady Marmalade was that Harry's guest list will probably be pretty much the same.

Exactly. Grace ended up a miserable unhappy alcoholic so I don't see her as a great example for anyone.

As to the waity thing, it's fine to criticize these women who arrange their schedules to be available for royal men, but if they didn't, when would they ever get to see them? Yes, it was mostly Kate who had to adapt to William, and Meghan will mostly have to adapt to Harry.

That is just the way it works.

I am of the opinion that everybody has to mantain their routine in the relationship... at this point she hibernates at least with her public appearances...

She should do promotion like nothing happens... Harry so his public appearances and she sits at home waiting him... that is not modern....

Are we under the misconception that only Meghan will have guests?

Last I looked Prince Harry was the groom. And his guests will include many if the sane people his brother included. Including the Van Cutsem family who through Charles, both boys are extremely close too. Grace may not be flower girl, but there will be at least one Astor in the audience if they wed. Like Beatrice and Eugenie, Harry moves in sometimes more posh circles then William.

As for lady marmalade crass comments about her father, what has her dad dive? He has refused to make any comment in the two. Both her parents have been silent. How are they any different then the middletons? Her big mouthed Hekmat brother is no different then uncle Gary. And unlike have Gary, there is little chance the half brother she hasn't seen in many years, will be invited.


As for the guest list maybe you should take a second look. There were plebtu if celebrities like posh and Becks. Definitely not high society.

I didn't mention Harry... but I will.

David Beckham was the only footballer and he was invited because of his work with William on England's World Cup bid.

As for the 'celebrities', again most have charity connections or are friends of Prince Charles.

Harry's guest list won't have the same foreign royals, politicians, members of the armed forces or clergy.

His friends are pretty much the same friends as William's, so they will be the same.

You are assuming she's sitting home waiting for him....however if she is and is choosing to do that, it's her decision to do so.

I have no clue about the brothers' personal friends, so I won't comment on that. However, to discredit Meghan as having only celebrity friends is quite unfair. She moves in the high society in Toronto as well. One of her best friends is Jessica Mulroney, who is the daughter in law off former Prime Minister of Canada and comes from a wealthy family herself. She's also friends with the current first family of Canada. Some argues that Jessica Mulroney is also part of the entertainment industry as her work is PR related, but she's also in a family that comes from what's considered respected by your definition. So perhaps the high society types are merging with the newer wealth. Perhaps they are less judgmental and more inclusive than some that are not in the group.

Will there be actors and actresses present? Sure. She knows some because she's an actress. I'd imagine her co stars would be invited, and Priyanka Chopra and so on. But to dismiss it as just another Hollywood wedding and somehow more cringeworthy than other royal weddings is unfair. Plus, some people that Meghan has worked with on her charitable causes, Thuli Madonsela comes to mind, have spoken very highly of her as more than an actress.

And if anything, I'd suspect Harry's wedding would include more representatives from different levels of armed forces than William's did. Military is a big part of who he is, and he's done a lot to speak up for wounded veterans.

How do you know what she does when Harry's is doing public appearances? She could be doing anything, and to assume that she's just waiting around for Harry to return home is silly.

There is a number of good reasons why she's not out there doing interviews right now other than she's staying at home waiting for Harry. One being that anywhere she goes, the attention would shift away from the show or her clothing line. Contrary to popular belief, not all press are good press. Especially if you actually have something of value to promote. If you are a reality star, sure all publicity are good. But that's not the case here.

I'm assuming you mean doing promotions for Suits. Actually, I don't think its up to Meghan as to what promotion or interviews she does. The show itself probably has its own PR department and they schedule the promotional events that the cast would participate in. So, Meghan has "bosses" that she heeds as Harry, in his official capacity representing the "Firm" has his grandmother for a "boss".

Right now, Meghan's time is her own to do as she pleases and its really none of anyone else's business how she spends it. She'll be back to a hectic filming schedule soon.

His friends are pretty much the same friends as William's, so they will be the same.

As I wrote before, if Harry marries while Queen Elizabeth II is still occupying the throne, I bet there will be no foreign royal guests at the wedding . Basically, it would be unusual for foreign royals to attend the wedding of a grandson of a monarch who is not in direct line to the throne unless they have some kind of personal connection to the groom, which is not the case with Harry. In fact, Harry's wedding during Elizabeth's reign might even be just a private, family event.

If, on the other hand, Harry marries when Charles is king , then there may be some junior foreign royals in attendance as it will be the wedding of a monarch's son after all and, therefore, probably a state wedding.

William wedding wasn't a state wedding, why would Harry's be?
Harry might not even have a church wedding, there no guarantee that the church will make an exception for Meghan

I would agree except this is unchartered territory here. While he's only the grandson of the monarchy, he's not like Zara or Mark or even the York princesses. He is the son of the heir to the throne. Also, he's a senior member of the BRF. He has a much higher profile than any other grandchildren of the Queen, not counting the Duke of Cambridge. I don't think it'll be as grand as the Cambridges' wedding, however I do see it as more similar to the spare of a Monarchy than say Zara or Mark's wedding. Unless there is something seriously wrong with his bride choice, and no being a divorcee who never married in the COE isn't at the level I'm talking about, it's unlikely he'll have a private wedding.

ETA, when I say private wedding, I mean with just family and friends. Bottoml line is I believe some foreign royals would be included. Not kings and queens, but still it won't just be royals who knows Harry personally.
