When you're people like Harry and Meghan, being able to be somewhere across the pond or on a different continent really doesn't present a problem during their down time. I don't think Harry has to plan "work" to get him to be where he wants to be with Meghan at all. He just simply looks at his calendar of events and finds the down time and off he'll go. Same with her as we've seen her rumored to have "moved in" with Harry during her down time from filming Suits.
I have read nothing about such a walk. If he did one across Canada, and tied it into the Terry fox annual run for marathon of hope, he sound get a huge amount if support and press in Canada. Fox only made it from Newfoundland to western Ontario begins a cancer relapse. Every year we celebrate his run to raise cancer awareness. Or even Rick Hansen, and his world in motion tour, which ended with him crossing Canada back home to Vancouver. Though neither were wounded soldiers, one had an artificial leg abd the other in a wheelchair.

But as far as I know the next walk Harry is talking of, well reported, is to cross the Sahara. He doesn't organize them, he joins the tests for events planned by walking.

He did recently cross the UK. Perhaps that was what you were thinking.

Love it when something sparks my research skills so I did sleuthing and found the information that brought the trek across America to my mind. Should have really found the details first but what the heck, its a lazy Sunday around here and its a day to work on mastering the fine art of doing nothing.

"I am also told that talks took place last week over another proposed charity trek – this time across America later in the summer. The event would see teams venturing from the East Coast to the West Coast, and it is anticipated that Harry will join them for several week-long stints."

The royals stay at Government House during official and State visits. This is not in Harry's case this time, I don't believe. I think Harry and his team will be staying at a hotel.

Are you saying that Harry should do something for the Walking with the Wounded through the Terry Fox Foundation or the Rick Hansen Foundation? Or are you suggesting that he get involved with the Foundations themselves?

If Harry were to do something with the Walking with the Wounded in Canada I think it would get praised. Likewise if he did something with the Terry Fox or Rick Hansen Foundations. If he was to do a Walking Wounded/Terry Fox thing though... that's not really a natural link and I think he'd get criticized for it. I could easily see such an attempt being interpreted as taking focus away from Terry Fox.

Relationshipwise it's nice for them to be able to spend more time in the same city, for longer periods of time. I don't know the protocol of these trips, but my logic says, that there shouldn't be a problem with him staying with Meghan, or her staying with him.

I think the deciding factor of whether or not he stays with Meghan while in Toronto would depend on why he was there. If he was there as a representative of his monarch, most likely he would be lodged in government house. If he's there for his own patronages such as Invictus Games, he'd be free to stay wherever he liked. That would be where protocol comes in to play in certain situations. If he was representing his monarch, the visit would most likely be at the request of Canada,

Just like Orlando, The Invictus Games in Canada have nothing to do with Harry other than his name. The staff is Canadian. The board is Canadian.

My sister-in-law is a volunteer and Harry hasn't been to Toronto in an official capacity in almost a year.

If he wants to hook up with Meghan, fine. But I would caution him over using Invictus Toronto as an excuse to get with Meghan. Canadian media will see right through it.

Harry should tour Canada first before he tries to exploit it for a booty call.

Ya'll get a grip! Harry is NOT going to stay clear of Meghan while planning these games or while they may be going on. And we all know it! So cautioning him in this forum or in any other way is pointless. The guy is in love! Accept it!

Yeah, that reminds me of back in 2013 when Andrew scheduled engagements in NYC so he could visit Eugenie and all the press criticism he got for mixing business and pleasure.

Prince Andrew criticised over US trip that coincides with Princess Eugenie's arrival in New York - Telegraph

"He is in New York carrying out a series of official engagements, but has also used the trip to visit his daughter and take her out for dinner ."

If the press got angry over a father fitting in daughter time, they might not be too pleased about Harry having a romantic rendezvous with his gf. Then again they tend to overlook things with him that they will attack other royals for. I guess we'll have to wait and see.

Judging from the way Harry and Meghan have worked their relationship so far, I would be inclined to believe that these two people are intelligent enough to know to keep their personal lives and their professional lives separate. I don't think we really have to worry about Harry "using" his royal status and royal engagements and visits to pursue his personal life and vice versa with Meghan and her professional role as an actress in Suits.

That's my take on it anyways.

Run, Harry, run as fast as you can. I do not like or trust her or her family, too 21st century Hollywood, too fractured. Harry, find a nice, suitable, kind, well bred, young lady to be your wife.

I don't get where you keep getting all this "Hollywood" from. She was raised in Los Angeles, sure, but her professional life that she's pursued for the past 7-8 years is out of Toronto, Canada and not Hollywood.

'Well-bred'. So we are back to allusions about horse-breeding again!

It reminds me of the infamous Princess Michael quote, "The English take the breeding of their horses and dogs more seriously than they do their children. God forbid that the wrong drop of blood should get into their labrador. But their children marry everywhere."

That really is a good quote to bring up in relation to how "well bred" Meghan isn't and isn't suitable for Harry. If the British Royal Family really wanted to ensure that Harry married what used to be termed as a "suitable gel", they would have demanded the all potential partners marrying into the BRF be required to submit their pedigree papers and resume to Debrett's before they even were allowed to date their royal partners and allowed into the gilded cage.

It borders on the ridiculous if you ask me. There is absolutely nothing demeaning or unsavory about having acting as a profession. People who look down on a person because of what they do are either very, very tall or have an overblown sense of importance of themselves and how they perceive that things should be.

Well, if he's stupid enough to marry her it'll become his own mistake....
He never had a proper feeling for a woman who fits for him IMO-and he never will!
Maybe this is one reason why Wills married this boring Katie: He might have been afraid to end up like Harry....

I think first and foremost, whether you are Royal or not, a person who fits for you is someone you love desperately, can't live without, and is someone you have good times with and empathy for, with plenty of common interests.

There is absolutely no evidence that Harry wasn't serious in that way with his long time love Chelsy Davy, or with Cressida Bonas. They 'fitted'. The romances didn't work out for various reasons. That's life!

We can't all meet someone at university and then date for eight years. Harry was committed to Chelsy through several of those early years of William and Kate's courtship anyway, till 2009 in fact, so there would be no need for William to feel the way that you assert.

Plenty of people fall in love, think that he/she is 'the one' and then break up, at all stages of life. It's not some sort of moral failing to be single into your 30's! If Harry and Meghan are together, are serious about each other and committed, I can't see that others should be casting aspersions on him or her. None of us know them personally.

One of the universal truths is that life is change. People that are very well suited to each other, love each other and seem like the "fairy tale couple" can and often do find that as the years roll by, they change and grow in separate directions or they grow together. I know this from experience. I divorced after 20 years of marriage. We grew apart and went in separate directions. It couldn't have been foreseen on the day of our wedding.

Marriage takes work and commitment and being able to compromise. The wedding is the celebration of a promise to do their best to do just that. Even in the most mature of commitments, the promises made at the wedding never guarantees happily ever after. Its the marriage itself that prevails over the years through ups and downs and trials and failures and those "I don't like you much right now" days.

None of us can really know or even begin to understand what the emotions, the little things that go bump in the night or the crazy little idiosyncrasies that either Meghan or Harry have nor can we know for certain just how well they "fit" with each other as that's something they're very careful to not let the public be privy to. We hardly even catch a glimpse of them together. How can we really pass judgment on the very little that we do know?

Relationships and marriages do not come with a step by step instruction book on how to guarantee a successful union with a money back guarantee if it doesn't work.

I just have a bad feeling about this couple don't see a happy ever. I think because a royal marriage is so much more than just being "madly in love ". It's a life time of working for your in-laws , doing what your told, being on show every time you step out the door etc etc it takes more than being "in love ". As the children of the Queens 3 out of 4 royal marriages not lasting shows. Anyway JMO as I'm not into fairytales
