I'm wondering if the KP statement is, as some have suggested, a prelude to an engagement announcement?
Press reports say that Meghan will visit Harry over the holidays, and while she is in the UK perhaps there will be a meeting with the Queen and the rest of the RF?

Agreed this sounds serious. Well, this is exciting. This is going to be a change in the BRF. I'm so curious to see the cultural shift.

Of course they will, and you got to throw in babies as well. They are going to run Harry and Meghan stories as long as they get the clicks, what really needs to happen is for Harry and Meghan to not feel pressure to get engaged or make other major life decisions because of media pressure. The media wants loved up pictures, engagement interviews and wedding processionals RIGHT NOW but my observation has been that the best royal relationships are the ones where the couple dates for years before determining whether or not they should get married. On my end I am willing to accelerate it a bit because they are in their 30s but my sage advise is that 2019 should be the earliest date for an engagement announcement.

Well... if the supposedly serious relationship in question ends in divorce later, it will not be surprising, and the British royal house is experienced in nasty divorces.

European royals continue tainting their bloodlines.

I think the Ancient Egyptian dynasties felt that tainting the bloodlines was a bad idea. In consequence there were apparently many brother/sister unions and the like.

I will fall over in shock if an engagement announcement is in the near future. The BRF are known for their long courtships since the late '80s. Whirlwind romances have been a disaster; Charles-Diana, Andrew-Sarah, and Anne-Mark all married after only about a year together. Hot mess.

Especially when you take into account extending factors, that his relationship with Meghan has been long distance with barely any in-person interaction. Also the fact that she's divorced. Stats and psychologists all say divorcees are much, much, more likely to get divorced a second time, than never-marrieds are likely to get divorced a first time. She would need a while to make sure she can really commit to Harry for the rest of her life, she can't get an easy divorce like her first one.

I also don't think Harry will be introducing Meghan to his family all that soon, with the exception of the Yorks and maybe Zara.

Catherine didn't meet The Queen until she had been William's girlfriend for 5 1/2 years, Chelsy 4 1/2 years. And in his 2 years with Cressida there is no evidence she ever met The Queen, heck there's no evidence she ever met Catherine. There's a chance she might have met William at the Percy-vS wedding, but he was only photographed with Chelsy there, so who knows.


Also, all these political posts in this thread remind me of when PM Tony Blair commented on then girlfriend Catherine Middleton and all the press harassment she was receiving. Thankfully, Chelsy and Cressida never had the indignity of a leader of a country chatting about their love-life with the press. Though, if it's true Meghan is friends with PM Justin Trudeau maybe he will make a comment about her romance, that would make everything go full-circle.

I could not agree MORE with all you have written above... Over speedy commitment would pretty much ensure disaster at a later date, and no-one [except perhaps the press] whats that for either of these young people.

For the Lady it would mean [within a matter of a few months] PERMANENT relocation across the Atlantic and separation from her family/friends. NO further participation in Social Media, and the definitive end to the Career she has built, before even considering her 'new life' as a Royal Duchess in the most scrutinised Family 'firm' on the Planet...

I read on a different forum where a user who is friends with someone that went to high school with Meghan and the press has been contacting her to get dirt on Meghan...

I mean, that is just astonishing. There is a witch hunt going on right now.

Yes, I agree. It's been extraordinary, a maelstrom of speculation and innuendo and dirt-digging over one week.

Re: "Meghanry" (Meghan + Henry), I thought from the first it was true. The KP statement is odd, but I believe Harry strongly urged it, and wrote parts of it hmself. He and William get fierce re: paparazzi matters (as well they should).

I predict engagement by year's end (perhaps not announced until early 2017), followed by a royal wedding in May.

She means Harry is marrying a commoner with no drop of royal blood in her family and her blood is tainting. So like this

Harry and Meghan may or may not be The Real Thing. They might be enjoying a passionate romance that eventually ends, or they may be enjoying a passionate romance that leads to marriage.

This guy lost his mother when he was twelve years old. He was a child. The sight of his downcast face as his father held his hand while greeting mourners at the Palace gates stays with me still...as does the image of the MUMMY card he placed on the coffin.

I have suspected for years the wound inflicted on both of the Wales boys by that trauma ran deeper than any of us can ever know. It's why even though I was not overjoyed with William's choice of spouse I was able to understand that he needed so much more than just a wife. He needed the healing that the security of a happy family life could provide and I am satisfied that he seems to have found it. My feelings about Kate Middleton and her family don't matter.

I want the same for Harry. I want him to find the woman that can give him a shot at joy and stability, something that he and his brother were deprived of in childhood.

So, if this is it let it happen for him...why not?

Meghan sounds lovely compared to the other two he used to date. I really thought we were over the English prince dating and American and who knows they might not even marry

Somehow I don't think Harry is the cautious type, though.

I don't see him waiting as long as his brother did.

And I don't see him marrying someone he's known less than a year.

They did this with cressie.

But what I do know is that Chelsey will always be his camilia
