Anyway, I am hoping Harry doesn't follow suit. Thoughts?
Charles's wedding ring is worn with his signet ring. He wore his wedding from his marriage to Diana until he became officially engaged to Camilla.

William don't wear any jewels on than a watch. He used to wear a bracelet, but he no longer do that.

Perhaps Harry will wear his someday.

William doesn't have a wedding ring. So it's not like he has one and doesn't wear it. Philip doesn't wear a ring. Kate's dad doesn't wear a ring. Those two older gentlemen's marriages are still going strong.

That's right! William never received a ring to wear in the first place. If he had one he would wear it. It was announced that it was a personal choice for him to not have a ring. William would never disrespect his wife by having a ring and not wearing it.

Perhaps Harry will make a different choice to have in a and wear it. We'll never know until that day comes anyway.

We don't know who introduced Harry to Meghan for the first time for the plain and simple reason that we don't know where and when they first met. I've read Toronto, Canada in May, in which case neither of the Yorkies were there and it was more likely to have been one of Meghan's friends. Or it could have been England and that June when Meghan was on a visit.

As far as I know neither Beatrice nor Eugenie know Meghan, though they certainly had socialised with Cressida Bonas and members of her family, and Eugenie introduced Harry to Cress at a music festival in May. Whether they dated seriously before he went to Afghanistan that year is debatable though.

I don't think it is disrespectful necessarily to not wear your wedding ring even if you have one. Some people's jobs have safety issues wearing rings, other people develop allergies to metal and some who never wore a ring before find they don't like wearing a ring. None of that means you are disrespecting your spouse,

Right, it's really interesting to me that we still don't know when they met/started dating. The only confirmed information is that they'd been dating for a "few months" by November via the statement.

We have no idea when they connected. They could have met in May when he was in Toronto for Invictus. Doesn't mean they started dating back then. Meghan is said to be friends with Sophie Trudeau (she definitely is with Jessica Mulroney who styles Sophie) and may have met via her.

She could have met through friends when she was in London for Wimbledon in the summer. Possibly both. Perhaps they met in Toronto and reconnected when she was in London. From her talk with Piers, we know she wasn't serious with anyone yet. Doesn't mean they weren't talking just not dating as in calling each other boyfriend girlfriend.

It's highly unlikely the Yorks had anything to do with it. We have no reason to believe Meghan met either until recently.

As for ring, nothing insulting. Many men who have them don't wear. My dad lost his golfing early in marriage and never bothered to replace. Married 45 years. Then again my mother didn't wear hers for twenty years as she lost the centre diamond in her engagement. Instead of replacing, she just wore her family ring. My dad replaced the diamond with a better one for her sixtieth but she got so used to not wearing it, only wears special occasions.

Well... if Harry doesn't want to wear a ring, I have another solution. My son and his wife did something totally unique and that was having a barcode (as you see on products in a grocery store for scanning) tattooed on their left wrists with the numerals being their wedding date.

It's only disrespectful to not wear a ring if you are doing something against your vows or you promised to wear one and don't.

My husband doesn't wear one due to his job ...married almost 30 years now. As long as the couple are okay with it...doesn't matter to anyone else.

Seems like 'we' had already figured out where they met? Some charity event or something Harry was at...?

If we believe tabloids, they did indeed meet in May in Toronto. And were introduced by her good friend Mark

OT: Don't mind me.... Just coming out of lurkdom to comment about the Wimbledon pic. So I was googling pictures from that day last year and in one of them you can see Pippa sitting behind Meghan. I wonder if they know they've been in close proximity of each other before her wedding reception?

I don't usually read through an entire article like this one, but I made the effort and don't see May being mentioned.

I did see this: "It was revealed on Sunday that Harry dated Burberry model Sarah Ann Macklin in June and July while he was romancing Meghan when she visited London. Friends of Sarah Ann, 27, told the Mail on Sunday that the Prince met the model at a private party where he took her number and bombarded her with texts, just as he is said to have done with Meghan. The relationship reportedly fizzled out but the model remains friendly with the Prince."

So we are hearing about June and July concerning a Burberry model, but I never saw May mentioned as the meeting between Meghan and Harry. Is it there right in front of me?

It's as I said in a previous post, nobody knows when and where they met. A previous poster stated that one or the other of the York princesses introduced them. Several of us pointed out that Meghan didn't/doesn't know the Yorks.

There have been various rumours flying around. They could have met in May in Toronto and it could have been Markus, to whom she's very close, who introduced them. It could have been in England in June. It probably didn't become serious until June/July when it's been said they met up in LA. but who knows!

From what I gathered and read, Harry and Meghan were on a double date with Eugenie and Jack in Toronto at a Halloween party in Soho House. Funnily enough, it was around that time the story broke of their relationship.

Yes, that appeared in the DM article linked above. It's never been confirmed though, and this was as you say, about the time Camilla Tominey broke the story of the Harry/Meghan romance in the Express. By then Harry had been dating Meghan for some months and Eugenie may well have partied previously with the couple. There's no evidence though that Meghan knew the Yorks before though, or that it had been Eugenie who had introduced her to Harry.

There are so many conflicting stories of how these two got together that I hope that if/when they become engaged they disclose where they met in the subsequent interview.

Personally I believe they met in London around the time of Wimbledon and were introduced through Markus Andersson. He probably was bombarding her with texts and wore her down.

LaRae
Makes sense to me.
Also it depends on HOW Diana´s jewels were shared between the 2. In case Diana had a last will, which claims exactly "this will go to Wills, this will go to Harry".... then it is clear.
But in case she did not do this.... then the 2 brothers will have to discuss in case Harry wants to select one ring from Dianas anchestry....

There were not yet THAT many jewels from the late Diana worn by Catherine: the engagement ring, the Lovers Knot Tiara and some Sapphire earrings - not more to my knowledge. One example is her famous Pearl Sapphire Choker..... we have not seen the one since Dianas death. So I would love to know, what the boys have decided on that one.
Time will tell
