Meghan is an actress, being somewhat active on social media is pretty much a required way to promote for at least tv actors. If Meghan and Harry were just a fun fling, no way would she have quieted down on social media. She used to be quite active on twitter and Instagram. Now she posts nothing, never. She closed down the Tig, which most likely was quite lucrative. She ended her contract with Reitman. We can look for reasons for this everywhere, but it all happened after she and Harry had been dating a few months.

Added to this all the other drama, Meghan's estranged family, the harassment, racism, press hunting down anyone to spill info on Meghan, offering a lot of money for any info. The press trying to shame her by posting any past movie scenes she's done.

Plus the flying and making effort to see each other.

No one would go through all that for a little fun fling. This relationship Imo is very serious, just looking at all the stuff thrown at meghan and Harry, and them still being together, and making more effort to spend quality time together.

Very good analysis there. It does seem like these two people aren't running away from something but working at running towards something in the future. Step by step. Inch by inch.

I'm not up on all the signs, just a little knowledge about it.

It is interesting though, one of our children is a Leo and a couple of our best friends are Leo's as well.

Some of those are quite hideous!

I hope, when it comes down to it that Harry uses a family ring...something from Diana's personal collection or the BRF collection.

I do love the idea of poppies incorporated into a flower arrangement though.

Poppies would be wonderful I think should Meghan choose them.

As Kate had Sweet Williams in her bouquet when she married her William, poppies in Meghan's bouquet could symbolize her Harry's deep commitment to standing up for veterans.

She could use white poppies which is a flower used as a symbol of pacifism, worn as an alternative to, or complement to, the red remembrance poppy for Remembrance Day or Anzac Day.

When we think about it, there's so many different ways Harry and Meghan could use symbolism should they marry but I do think its best to actually wait for an engagement announcement before we start going gung ho on wedding details.

I have more fun speculating here than reading the re-hash on gossip sites. At least here it's opinion and there is more thought involved.

Going back, American brides would at times have roses in their bouquet. Also, the national flower of the U.S. is the rose. A rose could be in Meghan's coat of arms.

Since Meghan would be a second time bride (if it happens), is white, cream and ivory out of the question as well as a veil?

Hmmm I'm not sure she would wear white however there are many shades of off-white she would look good in....cream, blush etc etc. I've seen some gorgeous dresses that are not the traditional wedding colors. However I wouldn't expect anything to outside the box at a BRF wedding.

No- that's not really a real tradition. There's no obstacle to prevent her from wearing white or a veil.

Rumors are that Harry and Meghan want a house in Norfolk, not far from the Cambridges.

Two potential choices are:

Prince Harry house hunting in Norfolk for loveliest for him and Meghan | Daily Star


I prefer Twyford Hall, it is more attractive.

Most likely if Harry really wanted to do as Will and Kate did, I'm sure that either the Queen or Charles (depending on who is monarch at the time) will do for Harry as they did with William with Anmer Hall. Something on the Sandringham estate if Harry and Meghan want Norfolk.

I don't see Harry just going out and purchasing a place. Its not something that the British royal family is known to do.

Could it be leaked as part of stoking anticipation for a romantic royal wedding. I agree that the Queen normally gifts close married relatives with properties in the country. But what other estates are available that are owned by the crown? If not owned, do you mean the Queen would purchase for Prince Harry @Osipi?

Hopefully, Harry and Meghan are proceeding with caution and pacing themselves. They should probably be counseled by a minister in the church before arriving at a final marriage decision. It could be that if they aren't engaged by August, as speculated, we won't hear of an official announcement until early next year. However, I don't think they would still be together at this point if they did not already have a deep understanding. It probably came together for them on their Norwegian vacation coupled with time they spent together in January and February culminating in Valentine's Day. Meghan shuttered her Tig site sometime around end of March 2016, right?

Overall, your earlier analogy is so lovely and poetic. I can see why your avatar picture is of Walt Whitman. (ETA: Correction - Ralph Waldo Emerson!)

Still, as I've mentioned previously, I read a non-tabloid article that mentioned HM QE-II will not tolerate any further divorces in her family. She told her older grandchildren to be absolutely certain they are comfortable and compatible with any serious prospective marriage partner. That's exactly what Harry and Meghan are doing … spending a lot of time together in order to be certain of the strength and full commitment of their relationship. Prince Harry also has recent very instructive family history to guide him, as does his brother Prince William. I doubt Meghan and Harry would still be together if they weren't already deeply committed, especially under the circumstances of the intense scrutiny (and especially with Meghan making such obvious definitive career-shuttering decisions re Reitmans and her lifestyle blog).

Meghan and Harry are older and have more knowledge and experience of who they are as people and what they want out of life and out of their relationship. That bodes well for them.

What a delightful and bold mix. Leo and Libra sun signs are very compatible. As @Osipi mentioned earlier, it's true that a full natal chart shows much more about relationship compatibiity, than just sun signs.

Apparently the sun signs (Leo-Virgo) and the stars are dynamic and compatible for Meghan and Harry.

As nice as it is to look at pretty places, I doubt Harry and any potentional wife would have two bases, let alone one newly bought.

Yeah not for quite some time I don't think....and as you point out, no need for him to buy anything...how many large homes are on that estate still they could pick from?

I think it depends on what is available and what a couple wants as far as a residence. The Queen bought Gatcombe Park for Anne and Mark and Sunninghill for Andrew and Sarah but Edward and Sophie live at Bagshot Park which is owned by the Crown Estates.

They'll know themselves when they're ready to announce an engagement, if ever. They've been keeping to themselves, not seeking the public limelight and just taking their sweet time doing things that a couple in a budding relationship do. They're not partying or nightclubbing but rather prefer to be alone "at home" with each other it seems.

Actually, my avatar is Ralph Waldo Emerson. He's always been my favorite American transcendentalist essayist of the 19th century. Another one of his quotes could tie in, I think, with Harry and Meghan's relationship as it progresses under the stress and strain of the public, the media and Great Aunt Hortense's cat.

"To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment."

I do think that HM has learned from previous experiences with her family and divorces that its not something she would really care to go through with any of her family in the future and seriously advises taking time to know your partner and experience life together so that the chances of a divorce in the future are much lessened. I don't recall reading that she said she'd never allow a divorce again but rather wouldn't want to see one happen.

They don't get to tell Harry "no" because she parts her hair on the wrong side to them or things like that.

her Privy Counsel.
No but the queen and the powers that be will have a say, and they are not IMO going to allow a marriage to someone of a different culture, without there being soeme trial of the relationship in a more "real life" situation. Its hard ot say what marriages will work, but the more a couple have in common and the longer they have known each other in day to day life, the better chance they have. HM and Charles wont want to OK a marriage till the couple have had a longer period of knowing each other, and problaby living together discreetly.

Meghan is such a fun-spirited, happy person:
https://www.instagram.com/p/BFaVgfxmBIs/ from May 14, 2016 (pre-Harry)

Since I've practiced calligraphy myself, I love that Meghan's a calligrapher who enjoys hand-written notes and uplifting, inspirational quotes. It's especially sweet that she's known for sharing her inspirations with others.


https://www.instagram.com/p/BL90DstAVre/
The above Instagram quote by F. Scott Fitzgerald is really so very heartening. It's interesting that Meghan has it typewritten which adds so much character...

Here are photos from an August/September 2016 article about Meghan in Miami Living Magazine, which I bet most people are not familiar with since it doesn't pop up via a general Google search:
Meghan Markle, Miami Living Magazine, August 1, 2016 Photos and Images | Getty Images

And here is Meghan's old Instagram post about the feature.
https://www.instagram.com/p/BJKu8kggxLG/
The article had been in the works before Meghan met Harry, but was published just before it became publicly gossiped about that she was dating Prince Harry.

And Meghan was featured in Best Health magazine, and on the cover:
https://www.instagram.com/p/BEHL0AVmBAz/
Meghan Markle: The Beauty of Balance | Best Health Magazine Canada

Meghan also appeared on the cover of Jumeirah magazine (a travel publication):
https://plus.google.com/+Jumeirah/posts/4SnBwzhgoy5

This lovely portrait drawing was given to Meghan by an artist fan in 2015:
https://www.instagram.com/p/3Fk2hLGBO5/

Yep, Prince Harry is a lucky guy.

Ha ha, I was just thinking that the eventual story of their romance should be entitled:

When Harry Met Rachel...

Now, if the tabloids start printing clickbait articles titled "When Harry Met Meghan," filled with information about their astrological compatibility/ differences, then we can bet that the tabs and paps surf Internet forum sites for fodder to dish about this happy and very private couple.

I wish M&H the best luck and the greatest happiness!

Its my understanding that the only things that would prevent a blessing by the monarch on a family member's wish to marry would be if it went totally against the Church of England of which the monarch is the Supreme Governor of and something in the bride's background that would be detrimental to the monarchy and British interest. British royals have been marrying outside of their "culture" for centuries.

When it comes to the "aye" or "nay" of Harry's marriage, Charles isn't involved at all and doesn't give his assent to the marriage other than that of being Harry's father. The Queen's assent with the advice of her Privy Council is not in any way related to what culture they think is right or wrong, whether the bride is too old or too young or anything other than what would effect the monarchy as I stated earlier. In this regard, we need to separate Elizabeth's role in the whole thing from being Harry's grandmother. This procedure is part of her duties as the monarch.

So far, I think Harry and Meghan are doing a pretty good job of "getting to know" each other and when they are together, for the most part, they are together in private and time will tell how the relationship develops. As I see it though, there is absolutely nothing that would bar a marriage between these two.

Ah, thanks for the clarification and further details about homes the Queen previously bestowed upon her family.

I wasn't sure that your avatar was Whitman. It seems to resemble him. But I figured that it was of a literary figure. And it also made me think at first that you are male. Now, I know differently. There should probably be a gender indicator symbol next to our avatars.

I just had a scathingly, brilliant idea that would really, really make Meghan look like the perfect bride for Harry. Just have TV channels keep rerunning all the old, past episodes of the show that was on not too long back ago called "I Want To Marry Harry". The show was so stupid it was hilarious. All these women competing to win over "Prince Harry" and none of them had a clue whatsoever what the "real" Harry looked like.

Lo and behold! The episodes are on YouTube if you really need a good laugh.
