Lord Fermoy is not a royal, so the comparison doesn't apply IMHO. The fact that Prince Harry is (matrilineally) related to him is not relevant as far as Lord Fermoy's private life is concerned.

If I wanted to insult the woman you would know it. A D list actress is nothing like a reality star mostly because reality stars aren't serious actors. I call Meghan D list because that is what her level of fame appears like to me. I am comparing her to the A list actresses like Scarlett a Johansson or Angelina. I would concede in calling her possibly C list but nothing above that. Apparently Suits is an ensemble show and I don't know her ranking among the other cast; is she top billing, second, third?
I like Meghan and have no reason to insult her, shes a working actress, and hearing about how much she gets paid an episode I would say she is a very successful working actress.
And I think Meghan is prettier than Giselle.

I don't believe this thread is here to discuss the "fame" level of actresses and actors and butchers and bakers and candlestick makers. The only thing that is relevant here is Meghan's relationship with Harry. Her interests and her accomplishments are relevant as they show common ground for the relationship.

I just think she has a right to live her life as she sees fit; since she is not a member of the Rr, no is she British, she is not required to live life like a nun or like a royal, eschewing any opportunities that may come her way. She has a right to run naked down the Mall if she sees fit. I think she should enjoy this for as long as it lasts and frankly if she gets the ring, good for her. If not then she has earned a lot of press coverage and I am certain that there shouldn't be problems with her enjoying life all the more as is her basic human right.

I am not attacking anyone on this forum I just resent how her 'hustle' is disparaged.

I am just wondering what kind of ring he will give her

I'm wondering if the couple are already secretly engaged? What on earth could explain the sudden change then?
If the groom's brother cannot bring his own girlfriend, how is it a friend of the bride can bring his girlfriend. 🤔
I'm thinking the couple will announce their engagement early summer with Meghan traveling with Harry to Africa in the fall.
My feeling is that because Harry is royalty, the rules don't apply. Also, I am not sure I believe the "no ring no bring" policy. The only place I have read it is the Daily Smell. Is there a better source I have missed that reported this?

Aristocat, just to make sure, I do not disparage Meghan anything; I like the girl and I admire her work ethic. I just know there are some who think a royal marrying anyone associated with the entertainment industry is lowering themselves.

She not just an actress, but a successful kind and giving person. She's also smart as a whip. There's still more to learn about her as well. We really don't get to know more about royal girlfriends until things become official. We're still learning more about Catherine after a decade and some. It's about giving these young ladies a chance. People can't just write her off because she's an actress. It's all about what Harry wants anyway.

That opinion just shows how shallow and inept some people are to believe that associating 'with the entertainment industry is lowering..'. Anyhow what counts is the opinion of the person involved in the relationship and in this case HRH Prince Henry of Wales thinks and acts way above those with their irrelevant opinions.

Actually when we stop to think about it, the shallow concept that consorting with the people in the entertainment business is lowering is right along the lines of believing that mental health issues are a stigma and never to be talked about.

I think Harry is doing a good job dispelling both of these concepts and bringing things down to earth as he goes about his life just being Harry.

The more bases you cover, the more chances you have to say "Haha, we were right!" in the future

It won't be next year or long in the future. These two want children! And they are in their 30's people. I predict an engagement this year.

I think one major thing that keeps cropping up while discussing Harry and Meghan's relationship is that we tend to see each person through our own personal filters. If we don't like an aspect of a person, then Harry shouldn't either or she's not suitable.

Meghan doesn't need to be exceptional. Meghan doesn't need to have an extensive resume of employment and career recommendations. Meghan doesn't need to have an aristocratic bloodline. Meghan doesn't need to be an airhead. What matters is what Meghan means to Harry and what Harry means to Meghan. That is all that matters in the long run. We're just outsiders looking in and its not our place to put "labels" on people we don't know.

We need to look at this couple more objectively than subjectively as if we were true journalists reporting on the facts of things and not being editorial in taking apart a person's character.

A prime example is our personal opinions of when this couple is going to be engaged. We can't possibly know. We can however point out the signs that may lead to it that we've seen.

Just remember that both Harry and Meghan are human beings that we don't know and probably don't have a snowball's chance in Hades of ever getting to really know.

I think Meghan is one of the most ill suited royal girlfriends in a long time. If they do get married, she's really going to struggle to be accepted into The Firm and British society in general.

It's Harry's choice obviously, but I think 'Media Meghan' is in for a rude awakening when the time comes.

I don't guess I understand how Meghan is any more ill-suited than the rest of them.

I’ve deleted the discussion about which member of the BRF has a proper job and whether Meghan (or any other royal partner) should a have a career. This thread is about Prince Harry and his relationships, if you wish to discuss whether Harry's wife could continue working, do it here. Any additional off-topic posts will be deleted.

On another note, yesterday I posted two moderator notes which were ignored and resulted in the thread being closed. Please remember to follow mod warnings. Thank you.

To be honest, I don't see it presenting a problem at all. Sure, some aspects of high British society may get all in a dither and get out their smelling salts and clutch their pearls but its going to be their loss if they cannot accept Harry's bride (whomever she should be).

As far as the Firm, I see absolutely no reason why they wouldn't see Meghan as anything but a huge asset. I don't believe any of the royal family has their noses up in the air or look down on anybody. In a world today where the BRF is working more as a team and reaching every corner of British society and even beyond with global campaigns, Meghan joining them as partner with Harry would be seen as an asset to the Firm.

Of course that's just my opinion and reflects how I view the BRF as a whole from what I've seen them do and strive to achieve.

I think that's silly and baseless. She's got experience relevant to what she would be doing for the rest of her life: public speaking, humanitarian work, dressing to be in the public eye, she's even got the preparation to write beautiful notes and letters, which the royals do regularly. Her humanitarian work would be her greatest asset in the job of royal spouse, and she seems to have a real passion for it.

I tend to think it would be quite a successful match and I hope a marriage happens

I agree with you. If Harry and Meghan marry, I see her as being a great asset to the BRF. Harry was born into the BRF, he knows how they operate behind the scenes so I trust his judgment. IMO, Harry does great work and people who are respectful of that will welcome his choice of who makes him happy in his personal and public life.

That says more about The Firm than Meghan, if I'd think it to be true. But I'm struggling to see how she's ill suited. And I'm struggling to what the rude awakening is going to be.

Imo the whole BRF is big on media and PR, 'Media Meghan' has even that experience in the bag.
