A commenter on Go Fug Yourself left the following comment, which has some juicy gossip in it- totally unsubstantiated of course, but the Fug Girls found it interesting enough to mention on twitter so I will leave it here with a second note of caution that it's unsubstantiated gossip (though not outside the realm of reality)

Just WOW for he has never looked so happy before, and the smile on Meghan's face show she feels the very same way towards him. How I hope they disappear into the wilds of Africa not to be seen for a few weeks
and he gets down on one knee now. This is the best news of the day.

I just saw that posted elsewhere. Oh God! Why is it The Sun that's freakin' allowed to get this scoop?! They don't deserve to have scooped this pic/news of M&H's whereabouts. The Sun is part of the reason we haven't seen M&H in public together for months. Now this despicable tab gets the first scoop since their terrible egregious and petty headline in May!

I'm happy for M&H if they are happy. Please disappear tabs and paps. BACK OFF AND LEAVE THEM ALONE, so they might appear in public together more often. They are just two people in love after all. We want to read real news about them, admire them from afar and wish them well, not eat them alive. Your nonsensical intrusiveness does no one any favors.

Thanks @HRHHermione. Since Invictus Games is taking place in Toronto, many of us anticipated that Meghan and Harry might show up together at that event in some capacity, even if their being together is kept to a low profile.

However, with the unsubstantiated info you have shared, perhaps we will hear of an engagement sooner than later. Maybe around the time of Prince Harry's birthday on September 15?

I don't know about an African proposal...I mean that's where William did it..thought perhaps Harry would take a different path.

Hopefully they'll have some peace and privacy.

I feel bad for Patrick having to shut down his IG. It's also a loss for fans who enjoyed the glimpses into the behind-the-scenes on Suits.
China and India are in Asia, not Africa-totally different continent.

WOW, they look happy. I'm happy for both of them--I think a spring or summer 2018 wedding.

I think the occasional photo, if someone is in the right place at the right time or it is a public event, usually gets a pass from the BRF. I think the absolute made up stories, the stealing of photos to sell those stories or the stalker paparazzi are where the problems occur. And generally it is certain tabloids that are at fault. I know in years past certain royal photographers like Jayne Fincher or Tim Graham had lovely photos that were not intrusive and not part of the hysteria. I'm not sure what the answer is--if you give some, more is expected these days.

That's been my feeling for awhile too. Engagement by fall/winter and wedding next spring/summer....maybe fall depending on schedules and the move to England etc.

I apologize for not explaining the implications of what I was pointing out. I'll make my point more explicitly by adding and italicizing those implications.

Both China (3rd largest country by area) and India (7th largest country by area) - which together are 12.8 million square kilometers fit together into sub-Saharan Africa, and the article wasn't any more specific than "Africa". Therefore, since they could be anywhere within a roughly 13 million square kilometer area -- which is really, really big. like huge - they are less likely to be found than if the paper had said "they're in Namibia".

I do thank you for the geography lesson, however.

I'm sorry, I still don't understand your point, China and India are not in sub-Saharan Africa.

"Sub-Saharan Africa is, geographically, the area of the continent of Africa that lies south of the Sahara. According to the UN, it consists of all African countries that are fully or partially located south of the Sahara."

Unless all you are trying to say is Africa is a large continent, which I agree. Lots of places to be, some more likely than others,

This is some of what I've been waiting for! They look so happy together and I'm happy for them. Wonder whether their holiday is in Lesotho or ....? Anyway, I hope Meghan enjoyed her birthday and that they have a great time!

It's always the Sun!

The DM has the most pictures, but the Sun usually gets the money shot!
(If you recall, it was the Sun who had the only photo of Harry and Meghan in the car heading to Pippa's wedding reception).

The Sun must spend a fortune on all the folks they have station all over waiting for these couples to pop up.

In Meghan's AOL Build interview I linked here earlier, she talks about how and why she put together The Tig (her former lifestyle website, which is now defunct):

"I wanted a place where I could share these great experiences I'm able to have and make it inspirational for people but also a reminder that it's all attainable.* Like I didn't grow up with this kind of lifestyle or being interviewed or having fancy things. Like that is all very new [to me]. And so to be able to show [if] you want that you can totally have that. And you're enough and you're worth it. It's also a great way for me to connect with people... I feel a really big responsibility. If you have this kind of job and you have an opportunity to have a profile where people are listening to what you're saying, I really truly think you need to be saying something that's valuable... I'd like to talk about women's rights... humanitarian trips or just bolstering self-esteem that has nothing to do with the external... that's a great part of social media for me to see where that's landing. These girls [fans all over the world who followed her on The Tig] have connected with each other through me..."

Meghan also speaks so eloquently about her humanitarian work and how it's important for her to make sure she's hands-on and deeply involved with the entire process. She's definitely bright, committed and genuine. Cool too how Meghan reflects that her foodie gene came from hanging around after school with craft services on the set of Married with Children helping prepare delicious snacks for the cast.

I think seeing Meghan's (pre-Harry) interviews and her down-to-earth way of engaging with people reveals a bit of why Prince Harry is so attracted to her.

* One thing though that isn't attainable for everyone is dating a Prince, but of course not everyone is interested in dating a Prince either, nor could handle it as well as Meghan has so far.

Yeah, I guess I don't pay too much attention to which tab got which scoop first. Now that you mention it though, yes, I guess The Sun would have the windshield shot since they were sneaking around in May trying to start a 'bum war.'

As I recall, wasn't it TMZ who got the money shots of Harry and Meghan walking hand-in-hand back to their limo after dinner out at Soho House, sometime in January or February? Those pics were the second shots of them together, but with the best view that had been captured to that point (since their reported Christmas tree adventure in December was thankfully not snapped by bystanders).

Proposing marriage in Africa is a Brit royal family tradition, and both Will & Harry respect their family's traditions (if not all the antiquated protocol and more annoying aspects of fishbowl life). I'm thinking now that it's possible Meghan may be planning to move to London soon, and that she and Harry may live together for a few months to really see what it's like being with each other for a longer period of time in a 'setting up house' kind of way. I don't think they are unsure about their feelings, but just that they may take things slowly before an actual announcement (as the Queen had previously advised other young royals to do before definitively making the official step to get married).

So, we may not officially hear of an engagement for awhile, even though it's possible Harry could propose on this trip. Hopefully, they will not have to be as undercover regarding their whereabouts, and can be seen in public on occasion, except for official events, which wouldn't happen until after an engagement is announced.

As the couple gets more serious and some time has passed since they started dating, the conversation of Meghan moving to London and the couple possibly live together for awhile comes up more often. I'm wondering how would the British public feel about them living together at Kensington Palace/ Nottingham Cottage before marriage?

I don't think there is any issues with them living together, but what about Meghan living at a royal palace before marrying into the family? I know she's stayed there when she's visiting Harry, but if she moves, that's more of a permanent thing.

Lesotho was the first place I thought of when it said they were in Africa. It had been reported a while ago that Harry wanted to take her to Sentebale and they had planned on visiting Africa. Just my opinion but I do believe that Meghan would be a prime candidate to want to get involved and get down and dirty in support of Sentebale. I can picture Harry saying "I want you to meet my kids." I think I first realized that this was a common ground for them when I read an article that had pictures side by side of Meghan with kids in Rwanda and then Harry with his kids in Lesotho.

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/arti...other-did.html

They do look amazing together don't they? One thing I can say about the level of privacy they've been able to enjoy because those close to them are forming a protective circle around them is that it totally lays to rest many of the misgivings that were put out at the beginning of their relationship that Meghan may be in it for all the publicity she can garner out of it. Here it is a year into the relationship and they've been playing a cat and mouse game with the press and doing it very successfully too.
