In other words, there might be a malicious intention behind it.

That's weird because we already knew that. I read it as the author showing that their is nothing standing in their way.

Well, those of us who enjoy following royal news already knew that. But folks just starting to pay attention to Harry and Meghan after the wedding and polo sightings may not have been aware before reading this...

I would bet a lot of money that she didn't pass the Foreign Service Exams. Not underestimating her capability to pass it, just that most people have a fanatic view towards becoming a career diplomat so I can't imagine anybody who's passed the exams to afterwards decide on becoming an actor. I've met US diplomats who used to be an actual part-time clown while studying for the exams, an aid worker, a military man, but the end goal was joining the Foreign Service. Studying for the exams itself already feels like a career. (I don't know exactly how the US exams go but in my country, you study and prepare for the process, take the 5 stages of the exams which last 2 years, and when you pass you spend 2 years in the Capital before being assigned as Third Secretary first. Attachés and Assistants have different exams--less stringent but still not easy.)

My guess is she was an intern or or under contract consultant or volunteer for an attached agency like USAid.

It was an internship. It's in this interview. It's also unclear if she actually graduated from Northwestern since she talks about going to LA after Argentina and getting acting jobs.

Meghan Markle Interview - Rachel Zane Suits USA Actress
I also started working directly after doing a university internship that doesn't mean that I didn't graduate. MM is part of Northwestern alumni. During a Suits promotion at NW, there were also interviews discussing in print and video, she graduated in 2003.

From the sources mouth itself and I don't mean Meghan. This is northwesterns alumni magazine. Refers to her as convocation 2003.

https://dailynorthwestern.com/2014/0...its-to-campus/

As for her talking about political career I don't see the concern. She wasn't saying if she quit acting today she'd go into politics. But that if she hadn't gone into acting, her other choice was politics.

Like many college students she had a double major, theater and foreign relations in her case. She chose to pursue theater. She switched majors at one point. The internship she took seemed to be to test if she liked it or not. By the time she graduated she had decided on acting so no need for foreign service exam.

Many people end up on different paths then they started. I went to university and pursued a double major in history abd English. Even did a year towards a masters. Now I am a nurse.

Exactly, Countessmeout completely understandable. I did something similar with my university major and career changes, therefore not difficult for me to relate.

I also don't see the big deal about previous interviews Meg has done referring to politics. She is not a member of the BRF yet. And in those interviews, she did not say, hey people now I'm dating Prince Harry, I'm going to be a part time princess and run to be president of the US too. Meghan has clearly shown that she is more than capable to do what is necessary when it is needed. IMO she has already done this, decreased her public social media posts, shut down her blog, The Tig, didn't renew her contract for her clothing line. In the meantime, she continues to quietly complete her acting contract, good for her!

Here is a similar article about Julia Louis Dreyfus. Same format.

https://dailynorthwestern.com/2017/0...ing-sag-award/

However, Julia never graduated. She left early to join SNL.

Article about getting honorary degree where she mentioned not graduating.

http://www.northwestern.edu/magazine...wild-side.html

So Communications 03 is not really not prove of graduating. However we are veering off topic so I won't make any more posts.

All these interviews she was giving before, partly to promote Suits, weren't her CV, she wasn't asked for career paths or exact time lines of her studies. She gave answers to what if scenarios, if she wasn't an actress, a hypothetical situation. She seems to have found another passion in charity work, where she also can make a difference.

Communications vs convocation. Notice the difference

Julia is referred to having been a communications student of the class of 1983. She isn't referred to as a graduate because she didn't.

Meghan is referred to as convocation 2003. That is a graduate.

My husband and I graduated from Northwestern University. There is a website for alumni where you can look up anyone who graduated. Megan is not listed under Megan Markle but under Rachel Markle . She graduated from the School of Communication in 2003. So I hope this ends that discussion. Someone else brought up Julia Louis Dreyfus. Many of Northwestern's famous school of speech/communication graduates did not actually graduate from Northwestern University. From Ann-Margret to the girl in Father of the Bride, many are discovered while students at Northwestern and do not return.

Of course that is also how I read the headline of the link. In my normal rounds of internet activity, I scroll through the headlines of "news" on AOL sometimes and its not unusual for 3-4 articles about the British royals to flash up. One that came up several times in the last month or so was "why Harry couldn't marry at Westminster Abbey" or similar. So, in my mind, that was basically the information being fed to the general public. This link today will probably show up on that news feed sooner or later too and dispel the previous statements.

Well in the last two years Harry has filed 3 complainants against the press plus he issued the 'infamous' open letter regarding harassment of Meghan last fall.

If Meghan has an issue with the way the royals deal with press intrusion, maybe she shouldn't marry Harry

The way I see it is that whatever road or path Meghan has taken in her past were all decisions made by her personally as the way she wanted to go with her life. One different turn at a fork in the road could have put her elsewhere than meeting Harry when she did. The past got her to where she is now.

The crossroads where both Harry and Meghan are right now and the decisions they make will determine their path in the future and as my crystal ball is in the shop for deep cleaning and polishing, that path will remain murky until they walk it and who knows where it will take them in the years to come if they decide to walk the road together.

Life is a beautiful thing filled with challenges and twists and turns and surprises.

No one should have to put up with racially charged articles or blatantly sexist journalism. Also, calling out the press for trying to enter her garage, the press was out of line.

It seems like Harry had a problem with it, not only Meghan, as he issued the statement, and he is the royal. William supported him, and he's the second in line to be the king.
It seems like the royals were fine with that way of dealing with the press intrusion.

On the Wild Side: Northwestern Magazine - Northwestern University

So Communications 03 is not really not prove of graduating. However we are veering off topic so I won't make any more posts.

Meghan graduated from Northwestern University in 2003 with a double major in Theater and International Relations. That is a fact which has been backed up by numerous sources.

On Meghan being political, my fear, however, is that Meghan, like many Americans, may have the illusion that the British Royal Family can actually influence public policy and, accordingly, may be tempted to see her marriage to Harry as a way to do so. Although the monarch and, to a lesser extent, the heir to the Crown may still have a marginal (albeit declining ) political influence (mostly due to their direct line of communication with the government) , Meghan, as the wife of the 5th in line to the throne, will have no such power. Again, if she expects to have any political influence then, she may be indeed on her way to a disappointing (but not necessarily "rough") awakening.

For me, its interesting to note that although Meghan may have stated that she might have gone into politics, her actual involvement in issues stemmed more towards the humanitarian than political.

Many of the humanitarian issues are those that would be acceptable for Meghan to champion on the world stage as Harry's wife and not be political at all. I can especially see Meghan joining forces with other royals on UN issues or Anne's Save the Children or Harry's Sentebale or.. or.. or... the list goes on.

To me it seems that Meghan's heart is directed more to making changes for the better in lives than to advocate for political policy changes.

Clearly Harry and Kensington Palace had the sense that racist and malicious comments are unacceptable behaviour. IMO, it was the decent thing to do. When human beings act in an atrocious manner, they should be called out for it and the incidents should not be treated as 'oh well that's the way it has always been, let's continue with being vulgar and nasty'. It is a terrible shame that in this day and age there are people who think so less of fellow human beings that they think it is ok for them to be harassed.

Harry, William, other members of RF and the general public have every right to complain if they want, that is why there is a complaint process in place.

Some people are mad at Meghan for being upset over the media's racist coverage of her mother's family. They see nothing wrong with the coverage stating that Meghan should just keep quiet over the racist overtones and accept it. So as always instead of supporting the victim the champion the rights of the racist media and place the blame on the person who did not ask for the abuse. I find it all sad.
