Didn't Zara even live with Richard Johnson when they were together?

I agree, I don't know why Harry and Meghan couldn't continue on as they are now if they become engaged.

Harry can hardly have taken Chelsy to Africa to 'impress her' as she was born on the continent of Africa and grew up with wild animals around until she went away to school. Chelsy used to describe herself as 'proudly African', so that 'Telegraph' article is rubbish.

But I don't know what he is doing that's so special. he spends holidays with her, he hasn't ditched her to go and watch Rugby? if he's seeing her at all, well If she flies all the way to England to see him, he's bound to want to spend that time with her.. and it would just be good manners not to then cancel a weekend with her to go out with his mates.
its possible that it is "friends with benefits" relationship, which is not intended to be life lasting

If they get engaged, they will probably live separately for the period of the engagement.
Zara isn't a working royal, so her behaviour is her own affair... She had a modest wedding in Scotland not a big televised one.

Yes I think she did...but I don't really remember much about that relationship.

I think they will continue as they are now until it becomes necessary for her to be in the UK full time (assuming they plan to marry)....and they could become engaged and not announce it for however long they want.

Denville, If Harry wanted a 'friends with benefits' relationship with someone there are plenty of women in Britain he could do that with. He'd hardly choose a woman who lives in another country whom he's only been able to see on average every three weeks or so.

If Nottingham Cottage was spacious enough for Will and Kate to live there after their wedding, I would imagine it would easily accommodate Harry and Meghan and its been reported that the couple do stay there when they're together in London.

I don't see any real viable reasons why Meghan would have to find another residence in London should they get engaged. Once an engagement is announced, most likely the wedding will follow in six months or so after. Perhaps the night before the wedding Meghan and her family could do as Kate's family did and stay at a hotel and leave from there to the church.

I don't see the Queen batting an eye with Harry and Meghan living together leading up to the wedding. She didn't with Sophie or Kate. It just makes sense for the two of them to stay at Nott Cott. Besides, Meghan probably already knows her way around the kitchen there very well by now.

You don't fly around back and forth (and he's done it also) if you are just having a friends with benefits relationship...he can get that anywhere he lives. You don't issue public statements, officially, about your g/f if you are just casually dating for sex.

Seeing has how they have been able to keep things so low profile we don't know what all he's done in order to see her.

No guy is flying to Africa (or Norway etc) or having them fly in for a weekend to attend a wedding reception (and attending a wedding together) just to keep his 'friends with benefits' person happy.

Well absolutely. William and Kate were living together quite openingly in Wales long before the engagement was announced or even took place.

To clarify my earlier question. I don't doubt they can live together before marriage or that Meghan can live with him at a royal palace once an engagement is announced. But would it be ok for them to live at a royal palace full time before an engagement is announced?

Chelsey was very young when she was with Harry so I never thought that would end in marriage. With Megan he will be aware that if he wants marriage and kids with her he can't hang about as she's already 36.

Yes, Sophie lived at Buckingham Palace part-time while dating Edward. Given that she had her own apartment in London already. Catherine stayed at Clarence House while dating William. Camilla lived and helped redecorate Clarence House while seeing Charles. Camilla's father also lived at Clarence House before his passing.

Again, members of the royal family are allowed to live with their partners before marriage. There's no strict guidelines they have to follow on this matter.

Harry actually lives in a separate small house on the grounds of Kensington Palace. I image security and such would be easier if Meghan just stayed there. Even if he had an apartment in the palace I doubt it would be an issue in 2017.
AFAIK Sophie lived at Buckingham Palace before she married Edward.

"Proposal is eminent" quotes from "friends of the couple" are bs and article fillers. If Harry was seriously about to propose, I'm guessing only his inner circle would know. And as notriously tight lipped his group is, I doubt they would leak it to the press.

I went back and looked at the old Will and Kate threads around the time of the proposal. The Kenya trip wasn't even reported when it happened and the big rumor was Kate was going to Sandringham that Christmas to meet the Queen and William was going to ask for permission to marry. Nobody predicted the October engagement. I imagine Harry and Meghan's engagement will come out of no where as well.

I don't actually follow Harry's love life as I am not hugely interested in him, but wasn't it Cressida who dumped him rather than the other way around ? I speculate Harry would have proposed to her if she had shown more interest in becoming his wife, which I think she didn't.

As for Harry's and Meghan's relationship, I believe it might end up in marriage, not because they are exactly soulmates, but because the circumstances and the stage they are in their lives make marriage convenient to both of them (yes, I am that cynical about "true love", sorry about that !)

The more I look at this picture, I am wondering if they are already engaged. They look so happy!!!

I think it is more a matter of having similar interests that drew them together in the first place. And their long distance relationship seems like a lot of work if there wasn't of spark of something more there. It's not like the girl next door who happened to be conveniently available when you both decided it was time to get married

I've thought for a while that an engagement just before the Invictus Games was a possibility with a Spring 2018 wedding, and I hope that turns out to be the case

Unless Harry had foresaw proposing months ago and had a quiet word with her producers and asked her to be written out early, I don't see it. Scripts and the season would be planned out months ago. Meghan is not some flighty twenty something year old to drop a commitment for a man. She has committed to a season and there is no rush. It seems only certain posters who think a proposal before November is required. Waiting till her season is over is not a long wait.

Nor is a spring wedding very likely. At least early. A proposal near Christmas would allow for a late spring early summer wedding.

And yes, I think Harry proposing in Africa would be seen by Harry as copying his brother. Harry seems more spontaneous and original. Maybe a romantic trip back to wear they went for the northern lights last year....who knows.

I highly doubt, that Meghan, who has her own life, career, and success, would enter into a 'marriage of convenience' with Harry. How on earth is this relationship in any way convenient for her? Her privacy is invaded constantly, her loved ones are harassed regularly for info about her, sexist and racially charged articles are written about her, some sites post 'nudes' of her, and her publicist have to deny these being her. There's nothing convenient for her to be in this relationship. And if they get engaged and marry, she has to quit her acting career, move to UK, and forget having public opinions about anything any more. How is that convenient? I have no doubt she'd easily find a more low profile man to get married with if she was looking for just any man to marry. I mean, she is smart, funny, charming, beautiful, has her own money and career. She's a catch. And for Harry, I would think he could find some woman to marry in the UK, if he just wanted some woman to marry.

To me, all of Meghan's and Harry's actions say, that they really like each other, love each other and for this reason want to be together. It could be just as simple as that.
