I think to some extent the royal is always going to be high maintenance compared to the non royal in a relationship; not because their personality is necessarily high maintenance, but because their role and the restrictions that accompany it lead to them being high maintenance.

As for being able to tell what's going on in a picture... even with a series of pics you're frequently guessing. Is Harry in a bad mood? Having a serious conversation? Is he needy because she put her arm around him... or did it just make sense within the context of the conversation they were having - which we don't know about?

All we really know based on these pictures is that they're serious enough that he's taking her to his friends' weddings (which he did not do with Cressida) and that she's comfortable enough to display affection towards him in public.

When it was known that they were dating, I confess it was hard for me to picture them together. But now that I've seen these first pictures, I totally fell in love with this couple. I'll be waiting excitely to see more of them together in the future, they've got a new fan!

Yes in that context... he's not your average guy working 9 to 5 ...the lifestyle due to his position is going to be/require a different level of care regardless if he's single or married.

It crossed my mind too (after seeing these pics) that her level of PDA (and his to her in a couple of them) indicates a certain level of seriousness.

I've looked at all the photos. In some he's sitting listening to Meghan, in others Harry's chatting with others and hugging them in greeting, in some more he's getting up and dancing a wee bit. They look very relaxed. Just because a person's not grinning for a while doesn't mean they're annoyed.
I agree with your viewpoints. But where did you see photos of Harry getting up and dancing?

I am new to this forum, and before joining, I tried to read through this entire thread. I found so many interesting and engaging takes that I agree with, especially from you @Curryong, and @Osipi, @Dman, @Cocoasneeze, and many others. It has been fun reading for the most part.

I think it is nice to be able to wish Meghan and Harry well. During these generally depressing times, it's a pleasant diversion to follow a love story from the sidelines. I like finding out things about their relationship, but at the same time, I really wish they could enjoy as normal a relationship as possible, without so much over-the-top frenzy and speculation. From all I've seen and read, it seems that they are genuinely enjoying being with each other, and that they have a number of interests in common. I'm impressed and happy for them that they have found a way to a certain degree to shield their developing relationship from the public.

There's no way that any of us can really know exactly how their relationship is developing unless they share snippets in an interview. And it won't come to that most likely unless they do become engaged. I suppose for the most part we are basing our comments and impressions upon what we've read, seen & heard, and based on our own backgrounds and experiences, as well as our individual knowledge of the British Royals (via books and documentaries).

I agree with those who say that these latest photos (this is the third set of photos we've seen of them together on public outings) show that they have a relaxed and easy comfort level with each other. Harry does seem somewhat glum in a few pictures but that could be for any variety of reasons, including discomfort at knowing pictures are being taken; maybe feeling a bit under the weather; wanting to protect the privacy of his relationship with Meghan; wanting to keep a low profile so as not to overshadow the married couple; but also maybe wanting to spend more time around his friend, Tom, while at the same time not wanting to leave Meghan's side. Who knows? It could be anything, including an unrelated personal matter that he's worried about.

Thank you MaiaMia and welcome to the forum. Regarding Harry's 'dancing', a US magazine has this article.

Prince Harry Danced for Meghan Markle at Pal’s Jamaica Wedding - Us Weekly

Unfortunately, and rather bizarrely, having talked about it they didn't provide an accompanying video or even photo in the article.

However, among the myriad photos we've had of the couple in the last day or so have been one or two where Harry is standing beside the table where they've been seated and is holding his hand up. Meghan's still seated but is looking up at him, smiling. I think that's what the article's referring to.

We've been really spoiled for images of Harry and Meghan in the last few hours and I wouldn't know where to look for that particular shot, but it's there. I noted it only because I wondered what was happening.

Yay for pictures!😊
It's nice to see the couple together.

Many of the couple's detractors have accused Harry of being a "love sick puppy" as it was Harry who released the statement defending Meghan and in their date night pics it was Harry who was protectively leading the way.
So it is nice to see Meghan being openly affectionate towards him.💕

To me, Harry looks annoyed because of the pictures being taken, I think he is really in love (the couple looks good together) and wants to protect this relationship with Meghan more than anything else. Her touching him looks to me like cheering him up.

And really, it will never change, so Harry better gets over his foul mood because for the rest of his life he will be photographed in public places. I wish him and Meghan well, but for some reason I see Harry transform into a press hater (maybe because now he has really THE ONE for him) who really shows his distaste like his brother, but it only gives bad energy (imo visible in the photos) and will lead to nothing but a strain on the relationship to both Meghan and the press.

I agree with this.

I think he alone is ready and willing to deal with the paparazzi, and tabloids, he was born to it. I'm thinking he gets annoyed when his friends wedding has paparazzi swarming outside just because of him. I don't think the friends mind, but Harry still sees himself as the one bringing the paparazzi wherever he goes.

I imagine the lady who was talking with Meghan and Harry, could have told him, that the paps were harassing some wedding guests. Or perhaps he had learned, that the lovely pastor had talked to daily mail. IMO he was clearly annoyed at something he was told, and Meghan was trying to console him and cheer him up.

This is all my speculation, and I could be completely wrong.

thanks @MaiaMia_53 and welcome to the forum!! :)

Give the guy a break! He was excited to see a British Prince in his church. Anyone would be. He did not say anything bad or off the wall. He did not talk to Harry or Meghan and he doesn't know them. He has no reason to stay quiet. It's great tourism PR for his country. He only discussed what he saw and what happened in the church. I am glad he did too. He provided some interesting comments.

According to some comments, Meghan has had that bracelet for years; it is not a gift from Harry.

(Supposedly she wore it at her first wedding).

Well now, Harry has already made ..... several months ago ..... a serious statement as to his relationship with Meghan via his official channels so why the excitment at seeing H&M at a friend's wedding where ever?!

Move along and get over it!

I will be exited to see pictures of them for a while, especially when there has been so few until now. It's nice to see Harry (&Mrghan, as her fan) seemingly happily together.

"The Suits actress was wearing what appeared to be a £5,000 gold Cartier Love Bracelet, believed to be a romantic token from her Royal lover."

DM speak for we don't have a clue but it makes for a good story.

Transform? He dislikes the media as much as his brother. Harry was the one who punched a pap and has registered complaints with various newspapers.

At least at official events Harry has been better at hiding his grudge while William usually ignores or frowns at the official press even when he is on duty. At his recent official events Harry looked visibly not in a happy place.

Yes, and a friend I had look claims what he sees is Harry is a little bit worse for wear. He thinks Harry has had too much champagne. Ha! Anyway, Meghan was doing her best to cheer the guy up. Let's hope he doesn't blow it with her.
