What's wrong with wanting to see more positive side of things, instead of looking for doom and gloom? Usually positive pictures don't end up creating paragraphs of body language expert blogs. Happy pictures get comments like 'aww, cute and sweet', not endless 'he's ready to dump her' comments.

Who cares, its your opinion have it, its their opinion they have it.

I don't think we are reading it as meaningful? Simply they look good together. Nobody is reading it as he's about to marry her like they read he's about to dump her from the other pics. They seem like a normal cute looking couple hanging out. Nothing more, nothing less. So perhaps it's less of a problem with what others say, but more of how you perceive.

Meghan and Prince Harry have been doing such a great job of trying to keep their relationship as private as possible. I like the fact that they've been able to get out and about enjoying time with each other when the paps don't have a heads-up and so don't get any pictures (such as when they went Christmas tree shopping, and there may be other excursions in London just walking around perhaps at night which we're not aware of because they weren't recognized, or no one reported anything). That's outstanding.

OTOH, when they have decided to go out in a more public way, such as at the theater, and recently dinner out at Soho House, they have seemed casual and comfortable together. At the same time they may be intending to send a not so subtle message to the media: "We're together. This is our business. Get used to it. We want to live our lives as normally as we can under the circumstances of our high public profile, but we also intend to maintain our privacy. Do not step over the line."

The thing about the Inskip wedding is it was clearly reported that the resort is an exclusive private club. Perhaps PH had expected a strict no fly-over zone (that's what I thought 'exclusive and private' meant). Or maybe they simply expected that the paps would heed prior warnings and show respect regarding the 'private' nature of the location and the proceedings. Possibly money may have exchanged hands with locals in order for the paps to have gotten as close as they did to take all of the pictures that have been made public.

On one hand, PH likely was concerned to not have his relationship made the focus during his good friend's wedding, and he clearly did not want his and Meghan's privacy invaded with any photos being taken for profit, much less the beach and balcony photos. If the paps go too far, both William and Harry have made it absolutely clear they will take legal action. Neither of these young men want a repeat of the OTT attention their mother endured, and that they feel greatly contributed to her death. William and Harry deserve their happiness and their privacy. I salute them for the respect they show both their parents, and for the loving way they continue to honor their mother's memory.

I think if they are truly serious and are on the path to trying the knot perhaps they should do something or signal that they are in deed serious this may cut down on the ridiculous stories that are coming out. The media is searching for confirmation.....give them a slight official nod and perhaps the feeding frenzy will dissipate for a while until the next step.

They've already given out multiple signals that they are serious. Not sure what you want them to do?

a semi formal signal, but perhaps to the media attending the wedding together is enough. The amount of speculative articles have dropped.

Harry and Meghan would not have to do anything in respect of making some gesture to stop the media interest - we cannot assume they are bothered by the media interest, nor that they read everything that we apparently do - the media interest is affecting the readers more so than the couple themselves. Whilst the frenzy carries on, so back in the real world Harry and Meghan get on with doing their thing.

Further, we can similize the situation ourselves if we imagine dating someone and all our friends and family keep asking us when are we're going to get married, when are we going to have children - all that after a few months, who in their right mind would bow to the pressure?!

Ha ha that is so true of every royal being discussed on this forum. If "my" royal does something and finishes up on the front page it's nothing but media beat up. If "your" royal does the same thing he/she should know better etc.
we all are guilty of that

I think they're a very nice set of photos. Glad to take a look at them, as I am interested in this romance. I also hope for other photos showing a relationship that is going well. A couple in love at the wedding of friends. Really, what could be nicer!

You see, I'm feeling good, the weather's hot, the sun is shining here...

I think it's nice that Harry finally has a nice, steady girlfriend.

I really do like this couple and wish them all the best. I hope the relationship continues to go well. We'll know it's headed towards the long term if she is written off of 'Suits' this season.

What do you want them doing a press conference? The palace has issued a statement where Harry calls her his girlfriend. They have taken a vacation together. Now they have been to a wedding where they are well photographed.

Honestly the only people who can have doubts they are together are either conspiracy theorists, fan girls with head buried in sand, or people who live under a rock and never see media.

Harry has a girlfriend. Talk is not going to die down. Until he gets married and then will be new talk like baby bump. They won't accomplish anything by catering to the media, but loss of privacy.

As fir the photos, the ones spoken of were steamy on a balcony. I am starting to think they managed to get those pulled as an intrusion of privacy. But these others they were on a public beach.

Nice photos. Don't mind seeing, no different then all other royal vacation shots.

Exactly.

There's a huge difference between saying Harry must be bored or annoyed with Meghan, she's too clingy, trying too hard, etc. and simply saying two people look good/beautiful together. I didn't even see the previous pics as "negative". I thought they looked like a normal couple, just as they do in these newly published pics. And yes, they are both easy on the eyes too.

Do we even know if there really are 'steamy' photos? I mean just cause someone says they have them doesn't mean they actually have them.

You also have to wonder how they define steamy. As we've learned in the last 24 hrs the British tabloids consider high-fives to be akin to the throes of passion.

I wonder how much longer Suits is going to last in any case. Isn't it into it's 7th season already? I knew nothing about Meghan and Suits until the news broke about Meghan dating Prince Harry last Oct/Nov. The star Gina Torres who played the managing partner in the law firm, already left the show I believe after season 6 (Torres is married to actor Laurence Fishburne of The Matrix & Apocalypse Now fame). Even The Good Wife was done after 7 seasons if I'm not mistaken.

I started watching Suits recently and I found it interesting, so I've been catching up with all of the season episodes on DVD, and not just because of Meghan. I think the show is well-written, well-acted and produced for a show of this genre. Meghan is a capable and competent actor and of course she's very attractive. Nothing to blow your socks off with her range, but very good with this limited type of material. Meghan also starred in two Hallmark movie romances which are fun to watch. They can be found on Youtube (but not great copies visually).

The Suits role came at an important turning point in Meghan's life and the experience brought a lot of wonderful opportunities to her, as well as the chance to live out her acting dreams. The role also came around the time she finally married her long time boyfriend, Trevor Engelson. However, Meghan's move to Toronto for filming is also reportedly what led to her eventual split from Engelson, since their lives went in different directions immediately after they married, and managing a long distance relationship was apparently too much to overcome. Meghan made many new friends in Toronto, including her cast mates, as well as Jessica Mulroney, Sophie & Justin Trudeau, Misha Nonoo, and Markus Anderson who is the friend responsible for introducing Meghan to Prince Harry at Soho House (probably in London in late June 2016).

With the importance to Meghan of her charitable work for UN Women, I agree it's safe to say that she will have no qualms about leaving the acting profession behind. Her modest career in the television spotlight has in many ways prepared her for a bigger spotlight with Prince Harry at her side. I hope that together they will be able to do a lot of good work for Prince Harry's charity, Sentebale, as well as his other projects to benefit wounded servicemen. And perhaps at some point, Meghan might be interested in working on acting-related education projects for disadvantaged youth in and around London. At the least, M&H do seem to be headed in the direction of a lifelong partnership.

I think Emily Andrews, among several others, mentioned having seen this latest batch, and stated on her Twitter at the time that there were photos around of the two of them frolicking in the sea together but also that there were snaps of them passionately kissing on a balcony.

Toronto-based site LaineyGossip said a little while ago that she had seen the steamy and sea snaps but these photos weren't able to be published in the UK because KP/Harry had put the old foot down. However she said she expected them to bob up on foreign sites soon, (presumably after someone pays big money for the kissing ones.)
