Trust me when I say, her being divorced means nothing. If this is all true, Harry and this young lady will be together with his family blessing.

And where is the mystique about Prince Henry? We all know how his bottom looks like. I think if he doesn't bothers with being mystique, why should he look for Cinderella?
And the award goes to....Furstin Taxis!! We've not only seen Harry's bottom we've seen the naked bottoms(and sundry other parts) of most of the members of the upright House of Windsor. We've listened to his daddy rhapsodize about wanting to be inside his married lover's knickers forever. We've seen his uncle accused of being a paedophile.

We know that his sister-in-law favors a Brazilian wax because we've seen her ungracefully photographed in the backs of taxicabs during her marathon apprenticeship as his brother's live-in.

What the heck kind of "mystique" are these people fantasizing about??!

What I find hilarious and and hypocritical beyond belief is that some of the same posters who were gushing over the TRUE LOVE pairing of a prince of the blood and a reality TV starlet who did soft porn modeling and shacked up with a NYC sugar daddy for a period feel that all bets are off with Harry and Meghan.

For the record I see nothing wrong at all wrong with a Royal prince marrying an aristocratic virgin with a spotless background if he loves her and she makes a good representative for both the dynasty and his family. It's a throwback to an earlier time. But on the the rare occasions it happens now people whisper that "it must have been an arrangement!".(I am thinking of HGD Guillaume of Luxembourg and Countess Stephanie de Lannoy)

It's time to face facts. The days when Royals chose their partners carefully with their countries and their reputations in mind as well as their own desires are OVER for good. They are looking out for #1 just like the common folk and choosing partners that appeal mostly to their....well.

You know what I want to say.

What a topsy turvy world we are living in.

An arrangement is a too big word but it absolutely helps when people see each other because they mingle in the same circles, to begin with.

Guillaume's close friends and associates have always been mostly Catholic aristocrats and fellow Royals Duc. It was almost inevitable that he and the young Belgian countess would meet.

Harry has some aristo friends but he and his brother-Royal as they are-favor an entirely different type of crowd than their counterpart in Luxembourg.

And that's just the way it is.

But Meghan does mingle in the same circles as H. She and Harry have several mutual friends, both in London and in the US, one of whom reportedly introduced them. Eugenie is also a bridge between, as she too knows many in this circle.

Unless and until an announcement is made, a Z list American Actress is of ZERO interest to me...

Well, with all due respect, she seems to have been of interest, for and against, for other posters on this thread for several pages over the last six days. Not to mention on other forums!

That is the problem in a nutshell. Lady Charlotte Wellesley, Hon. Alexandra Knatchbull, Tatiana Gallitzine and yes, Cressida Bonas, are more in the usual group of suspects. Not the partying and boozing lot Har, Eus and Bea frequent with.

Actually Cressida Bonas was and is a friend of Eugenie's, as is Chelsy Davy, another ex of Harry's, who is a great friend of Lady Melissa Percy, the daughter of the Duke of Northumberland. She was Missy's bridesmaid.

As I recall, Missy and other aristocratic friends also regularly visited clubs until her marriage. She was and presumably still is, also a friend of Harry's. George, her brother, was a friend of Pippa Middleton. Kate, William and Pippa have seen the inside of some London clubs in their time. It's all part of being young and single, though Harry too hasn't been seen in a club for some time now.

Actually Meghan and Harry are believed by some to have been introduced by their mutual friend Misha Nonoo, a designer and the separated wife of old Etonian Alexander Gilkes, who, with his brother Charlie, was at Eton with Harry and William. Misha's cousin is the Bahraini ambassador to the US.

Yes, and that is precisely why I think prince Harry should set his standards higher. Just like his brother did.

The more children William has the further from the throne Harry becomes..

There were quite a few people in Britain and elsewhere who did not believe that Catherine Middleton, daughter of airline personnel turned party planners and descendant of coal miners, was the best possible candidate for Prince William of Wales and that by finally deciding to wed her after 5+ years of living together he was in fact NOT setting the standards for the House of Windsor higher at all.

But for better or for worse he ignored the critics and chose the wife he wanted.

I think Harry should do the same. His wife will not be queen, after all.

I have always found it a shame that Kate has yet to find something that really gets her and is something that she wants to fight for. Mental health is shared with her husband and brother-in-law, it's not something that is entirely her. Not in the way micro-financing is Màxima's, or education for girls is Mary's.

Her work for the UN and charities speak for themselves. She has worked for her own money for years and is more than capable of supporting herself. She has passions and opinions and is a very good looking woman. Harry is doing well for himself here.



A lot of objections to her seem racially rooted, which is worrying. Besides the fact that she's going to receive a lot of hate for being bi-racial, she'd have to give up her career. Don't think many women should envy her for that position.


I totally agree. I think there is a race prejudice, especially by the english people,that is why I'm rooting for them to be together, I think it would be a breakthrough, a english prince with a mixed race girl. And I don't see a problem with her age. She's only 35, most women nowadays marry at this age and have children.

Judging someone because of how much melatonin their skin does or doesn't contains is so....18th century...that I have to remind myself that it's still an enormous problem in our world and that humans will probably never evolve beyond that type of idiocy.

I don't know what she's like as a person inside, but on the outside she's beautiful and smart and focused. Harry should consider himself lucky that she gives him time.

Most men would.

And for now...they are simply in a relationship that may or may not last. Why not let them enjoy it?

I think many more British will have an issue with her being American than her skin color TBH. I think most British are past the race thing (there will always be some who aren't and will be quite vocal about it).

I've been reading through who knows how many pages on her age, her marital status, her nationality, her discretion or lack thereof , her bloodlines (like the human race are a bunch of horses). All that matters is whether or not she is a force for good and a good life partner for Harry. That's it.

And for the love of God, people, so far it's only rumor and innuendo. Imagine when something's confirmed.

sorry, but I don't think Kate has higher standards. She was plebeian, had no defined profession and childhood was middle class

Is it plebeian to come from a family where the parents have been happily married for decades, didn't cheat on their spouses, worked hard to build a good business, provided comfortable lifestyles and good educations for their children, and managed to raise dignified and impeccably-mannered adults?

The Middletons may be commoners (plebeian), but they certainly aren't common.

I would think, if none of this was true, the palace would say something to help prevent her from being harassed.

I think the media and those online need to back up off this young lady.

I said plebeian, because what I know, she has no royal blood and for many people, this can be important. And having married parents for decades, does not define the character of anyone
