It's unfair to think she's doing nothing but sitting at home with him or waiting for him. I'm sure she's doing lots of things. She has friends in London and I'm sure she keeps herself busy. It's just wrong to even think someone is sitting in the house waiting for a ring.

It's very important to not try to reduce this very accomplished young lady to a doormat and waiting for a Prince to sweep her off her feet, to a palace and to live happily ever after. We need to let the fantasy go. These are just two grown and busy people spending some time together.

Don't allow the engagement talk get to you.

Well, then she's getting good practice to what life with Harry would be like. When not out on public engagements, most of her time would be spent holed up behind palace walls. Royal life is rather tedious and sequestered. If she and Harry only met up for vacations and the occasional weekend of passion, she'd get a completely wrong idea of what life with Harry would entail.

I believe that in Meghan's case there wouldn't even have to be an exception. The CoE will look at Meghan as having never been married before as she was not married in the church. His father and his second wife both had previous church weddings. Not sure if Camilla's was CoE or RC but that's where the monkey wrench was thrown into the mix when they married.

For all we know, Harry and Meghan could take off and elope (with the Queen's permission of course) to Las Vegas and get married by an Elvis impersonator.

If and when this couple do get engaged to be married, we'll have just about everything sorted out for them won't we?

That is what I mean by a "state wedding".
State wedding is when they invited Elected Head of State such as at the Time President Obama, if William's had a state wedding.

President Obama wasn't invited to William's wedding. William's wedding was deemed a semi-state occasion. The last state wedding was Charles's in 1981 since he was the heir. The next potential state wedding would be George's.

Harry will have way more freedom in how his wedding will look like. If he wanted something similar to Zara's or Peter's he could do it if he wanted.

I know that President Obama wasn't invited.
What I was saying is if William didn't have a state wedding, neither will Harry.

Regardless who he eventually marries I wouldn't be surprised if Harry had a wedding like Zara did. Smaller and more private.

AFAIK , Camilla married Andrew Parker-Bowles in the Roman Catholic church, so the issue was not a prior CoE marriage. Camilla's problem was explicitly that she was involved in the breakup of the PoW's previous marriage.

As I noted in my comment, at least nine Heads of State were present at William's wedding (five kings, one reigning queen, a sovereign prince, a sovereign grand duke, and a sultan). Again, as I also said, it was not a state occasion because William is not the heir (yet) as his father was when he married, but it was as close to a state occasion as it could get.

William's wedding was William's wedding. Harry's wedding is independent from William's wedding. Harry will have more freedom than his brother did in wedding type. Don't forget there will be 2 massive state occasions looming on the horizon with the State Funeral of the Queen and the Coronation of the new monarch. There might not be the budget for a big Westminster Abbey shut down the street wedding for Harry.

If the Queen, God forbid, passes before Harry marries, it's likely that Harry's wedding would be delayed to give sufficient time for mourning. But it's all premature since the Queen Mother lived to 100+. Regardless, those who thinks that Harry can have a wedding like Zara seem a little naive to me. For one, Zara is not working royal. Second, when Prince Charles does become King, he will only have two sons. All the attention that's been spread for the 3 younger children of the Queen will be focused on the only spare child Charles has.

Not on the same scale as William - I think St George's Windsor.

Of course not the same scale as William's. I forgot to mention that in the last one. However, for some to say it'll be like Zara's is unlikely as well.

It's not like Zara had a registry office wedding and a backyard reception. She still had a church wedding and a reception at a Royal Palace.

The key word there was Elected head of State. Having foreign Royals, whether its Kings or Queen doesn't make it a State wedding. Andrew's had royals (reigning monarchs) at his wedding, that didn't make it a state occasion.

Anyway we are talking too much about a hypothetical wedding that might not even happen

Zara's wedding was appropriate for a grandchild of the Queen's who is not a working royal. Harry isn't just a grandchild of the Queen. He's the one of only two children of the next king. And he's also one of the most popular members of the BRF and a senior royal.

A lot of people seem to think Harry is just as important as William. They think William and Harry will have a joint reign.

Why isn't Harry a Knight of the Garter?

Why doesn't Harry have a country estate?

Why isn't Harry a royal colonel?

Why shouldn't Harry have a big wedding?

Monarchy is hierarchical. Prince George is already more important than Harry.

Harry has options for his wedding that William didn't. A wedding at Windsor would be fitting for his role in the family.

As the second son of the next King I think it will be a televised wedding service at Westminster Abbey.

I'm not sure how all of that came about since no one is saying Harry will have the wedding on the scale of William. The differences of opinion (let's face it, that's what both sides' is until it actually happens) started whether or not there would be foreign royals there and some started saying it'll probably just be a family affair. It's unlikely to be the case. William was already more important than Andrew when he married Sarah, and look at what happened with his wedding. Bottom line is, unless Harry doesn't marry until George is in his twenties, it's unlikely this will be like Zara's wedding.

That not guarantee as Meghan is a divorcee
