I think people are taking the joke too serious. Of course Harry would feel a bit embarrassed and blush, but I don't think it all made him mad or upset.

Everyone is excited for Harry and it will come up. I'm sure the British media will try to bring it up before him too.

It was an inappropriate comment (for more than one reason) made in a public setting (making it even worse). The Pm needs a class in etiquette.

Not saying it wasn't inappropriate, but it was a harmless joke. Harry blushed and moved on. People think he was totally upset and refused to dance. Not likely true.

I've had family members embarrass me over a girlfriend and it's not that comfortable. One just blush and just move on.

Also, Harry will have to get used to people bringing up a girlfriend. He don't have to take the bait, but it will come up. The same happened to William in interviews when he was dating Catherine.

It's a little different to have your family members tease you privately than to be a Prince who's grown up in the media spotlight making it very hard to have a real relationship in the first place.

No I don't think Harry curled up in a ball unable to continue on with his day. I do think he was very uncomfortable.

Of course the media is going to talk about the g/f and if the relationship continues it will become more and more about long term speculation. I just expect someone in a position like a PM to have more tact.

I can't believe Meghan's brother and nephew said she'd make a great aunt for George and Charlotte and that Harry better not hurt their beloved 'Megs'

It's been like 3 weeks since the relationship went public.

Not exactly the best way to ingratiate yourself to the Firm. I suspect this rabble won't get within 100 feet of Prince George and Princess Charlotte.

Sometimes I wish Harry Potter's Cloak of Invisibility was a reality.
Harry and Meghan will be fine. I'm sure he's over the little embarrassment of last night. It's folks on the net that's making it out to be a big deal.

There will always be a little shyness present when ones love life comes up. It's. Part of life.

Yeah, it was a bit embarrassing for Harry, but all is good now. He's okay and getting on with his tour.

Yeah I saw that...hoping it's not true, just pieces and parts pulled out and just the media doing their typical thing.

The media will try to hound her family and come up with all kinds of "quotes" to form an article about the couple. We went through this with Catherine's estranged family members, old school chums, friends, etc.

Expect more.

If the press doesn't 'kill' this relationship, her family certainly will, it seems...

There was a report that Harry was getting on well with PM Browne for most of the night and after Harry refused to dance with the beauty queens and assorted half naked dancers Browne got up and was prancing around with them!

These are half-siblings (and their offspring) from Meghan's father's first marriage, and reading between the lines she has little to do with them, it seems. Meghan's mother and father have not spoken to the press at all. Meghan is the only child of Thomas Markle's second marriage.

The media is the one hounding her family. It all will be fine though. Nothing will harm the couple unless the couple give an interview and give very personal info, of which should be private.

The firm knows they're dealing with a new media system when it comes to personal relationships.

I don't know if it has to do with 'hounding' the family by the press.
Nobody is forcing this family (albeit half-siblings) to release personal information/pictures.
They should try a bit more discretion. We (almost) never heard anything of the Middleton, Davies, Bonas and Anstruther-Gough-Calthorpe families.

Prince Harry: Relationship Suggestions and Musings 2016

Just sitting at home watching my local tv news and commercial comes on for tonight's episode of Entertainment Tonight - dancing with the stars and interview with Megan Markle's sister. She can't go on Twitter and claim it was made up with this one.

I don't think ET hounded her to go on tv and talk. Pippa at least biked across America and waited for a couple of years after the Royal Wedding before going on the Today Show

Oh, I don't know, I can remember for instance Jacobi Calthorpe, Cress's half brother giving several interviews, nominally to do with his business 'Housekeeper' and bringing Cressida into it with various comments about her being shy, nervous, not used to the spotlight etc.

There were stories of some drinking and other high spirited holidays to do with Chelsy's family, and her uncle was interviewed and stated that Harry and Chelsy were deeply in love and soon to marry. They were about 20 at the time.

Then there's Uncle Gary Goldsmith and the stories of his villa and other goings on, as well as other relatives who complained they'd been forgotten and neglected in recent years.

And how do you know they've released information? This may have been taken from blogs and personal pages. The press that is chasing , so much that every day has some news about her. And the press has no ability to destroy a relationship, only if there is no real love, or if they are weak people, which is not the case.

This isn't taken from blogs or facebook. Entertainment Tonight is a major show which airs on across America.

Has Samantha Grant got a split personality? This is the woman who called her half-sister all the names under the sun on her Facebook, which some British tabloid or other carefully fashioned into an article!

Oh yeah, we heard from people in the past. That's why I said that people shouldn't be shocked or alarmed by these "quotes" because we got them before. None of it is harming, but some people will say a little something. Just as long as they're not telling very personal business. It's all good.

Again, we've been through this when William and Catherine were just dating. Expect more for Harry and Meghan. Also, when no one speaks, the media will speak for them. There will be tons of sources being cited.

I'm feeling sorry for Meghan, her sister is most likely talking to the tabloids against her wishes. Maybe she feels guilty, that her facebook posts got picked up, and a tabloid story was written off them. Or maybe she enjoys her spot in the tabloids.

At least it's all complimentary, and nothing personal.
