Exactly. And furthermore, as already mentioned, why mention it to the press? It seems like a 'tasteless' thing to say to the press and I can't imagine Meghan ringing them up to inform them. So I think we can safely answer "probably not" to my question.

I have no idea if Harry has hit the jackpot or not, because I know nothing about Meghan personally, much less as a girlfriend or a prospective wife. What I seem to notice is that his relationship with Meghan is not particularly popular among the British public. I also think they haven't been dating for a long time and that it is not wise to rush into long-term commitments like marriage.

I absolutely do. I think, that she hits all the right spots perfectly for him, personality wise, looks wise, her career and education. And I think they met at the right time in their lives, too.

Eta: what part of British public is this relationship not popular among? Where is this poll posted, because I wasn't asked, and I've not read anything that suggests about the popularity of this relationship.

Probably the Daily Mail and its commenters

That could be simply because Meghan is the current girlfriend.

When Chelsy was dating Harry, she came in for lots of criticism. But as soon as they broke up, there was only praise.
Same with Cressida. She (and her family) got slammed almost as much as the Middletons, but as soon as she and Harry split up, she became the perfect one that got away.

Pippa Middleton wedding: Is Prince Harry about to PROPOSE to Meghan Markle? | Daily Star

This article is important because it says that Harry and Meghan made the decision together for her not to attend the ceremony because if she had the attention would have been on her/them instead of Pippa. And this was Pippa's big day.

I agree, at their age, they aren't going to play around. Especially Meghan. It's not like in your twenties when you date for fun, and hope perhaps the other person may change their mind on things. In your thirties you know what you want in life and a partner. And if your partner doesn't want the same thing, you won't simply waste time. They will have discussed marriage and kids, even if not close to bring ready. Even if they don't get engaged for a year, no point putting time and work into a relationship you don't see going the full.

This article also comes from the Star which is a tabloid known for not so bright "credible sources" feeding them.

Of course if the tabloids make stuffs up, anyone is free to believe what they dish out. I personally don't and avoid links to the Star, the Sun, the Daily Fail and other publications blowing smoke out of their nether regions.

A good credible source would be to look to Kensington Palace for an announcement. That's what I'll wait for.

Out of curiosity, I have been reading the official explanatory notes for the Succession to the Crown Act 2013 and here is what it says about consent to royal marriages:

Quote:

19.Subsection (1) provides that any of the first six people in the line of succession to the Crown must obtain the consent of Her Majesty prior to their marriage. This effects a substantial decrease from the number of people affected by the Royal Marriages Act 1772. The recent practice under that Act is for Ministers to be informed of a proposed marriage of a person close in the succession to the Throne, and to have the opportunity of giving formal advice to Her Majesty as to whether consent should be given. The Government expects this practice to continue.

Source: Succession to the Crown Act 2013
So there seems to be official confirmation that ministers must be previously informed of Prince Harry's intention to marry and that the Queen should seek advice from the government before consenting to the marriage or not.

Yes until we hear it from the horses mouth I don't believe anything. And in this case, the horses mouth would be KP and then likely an interview like the Cambridges to announce.

No one that knows Harry and his intentions to propose would speak to tabloids.

As we have seen with other royal couples, and with Harry in previous, never count chickens before they hatch.

KP, CH and BP will be the best source for any announcement. We all have to wait for them to say something when the couple is ready.

Well, you're not going to get that so you might as well forget it.

Sure we will. The day Harry and Meghan publicly announce their engagement like Will and Kate did. Then it'll be official.

If I'm not mistaken, the press corps were summoned by Clarence House for an announcement just hours before it happened. Clarence House was where the Wales boys had their offices and resided with their father at the time. With Will, Kate and Harry now having their staff at Kensington Palace, I imagine it will be them that will summon the press corps for the announcement.

Why do you say that?

It seems like both of them are putting a lot of effort into this relationship. Every month they are still together makes a wedding more likely.

The sad thing about marrying a senior member of the BRF, the future spouse will have to give up a lot. Obviously, they know what they're getting in to. It's just so much and so overwhelming.

I think for someone who has been exposed to all the media and 'trappings' of famous/wealthy folks it might be somewhat easier to handle. You know what you are getting into.

Any couple, from the poor to the wealthy have to give something up when they marry. There's always going to be loss and gain at the same time.

No one knows what they are getting into when they marry royalty. Everyone thought Diana knew and she had no idea. We can just hope that IF she marries him she is strong enough to keep her head above water.

Diana's problem was different. She didn't have that much problem with the duties she had to take on. It was the marriage itself.

Diana was barely 20 and had never dealt with all the hoopla media stuff until she was outed as the g/f of Charles. Barely dated (if you can call it dating) Charles before they married.

VAST difference between she and someone like Meghan.
