Its kind of ironic how these words have often been applied to working royals too now and then.

Personally I don't see where just because someone is "famous" or "royal" or on a alphabetical list somewhere that it automatically deems them as being shallow people out for their own publicity.

I agree it doesn't automatically make them shallow. But celebrities and 'hollywood' types are notorious for their 'activism' and 'humanitarian' work.

It's as much about self promotion as anything else. It's rare to find someone in Hollywood who isn't a self described 'humanitarian'

There are plenty of people who work for good causes and are also in show business. It doesn't always follow that these actors and actresses are self-seeking at all.

I think it definitely helps that Meghan has been involved in charity work both in Africa and for the UN. Of course it's very different doing the sort of charity work that the BRF involve themselves in, but at least there seems to be a willingness there to seek out challenges and try to do something about them. If Meghan joins Harry in a trip to Lesotho in the next few weeks he will be able to show her the progress being made by Sentabale, and that will be fabulous. She has already been to Rawanda.

The girl simply want to make a difference. If you bother listening to her, she has been interested in making a difference in the world since she was a kid. Her profession is being an actress, but her job give her a plate form to do some amazing things for other people.

Not a huge fan of Ms. Jolie-Pitt at the moment but she has done a heck of a lot more than take politically correct publicity photos.

She and her estranged husband have used their considerable influence and fame to shine the spotlight on some very real problems in the Third World..genocide, displacement of refugees, exploitation of women and girls.

They have backed up those blah blah photos with millions upon millions of their personal fortune.

They are also responsible for providing housing to the people of Louisiana in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.

They have talked the talk AND walked the walk, in other words.

If that is the kind of "right on" actress Ms. Markle aspires to be she is in great company. We need more of that kind of "blah blah blah political correctness" not less, imo.

Thankfully some artists do social work, otherwise the world would be worse than it already is. And to say they do this to promote themselves, sorry, but I think a poisonous and stingy comment. what matters,They have already changed thousands of lives with charity

Where would the world be without Hollywood luvvies preaching to the rest of humanity

For me, we would all be better off without Angelina, George Clooney, Emma Watson et al and their politically correct mumbo jumbo.

Meghan is harmless enough. She eats kale and does yoga. She tells people to vote. She travels to Africa.

She just needs to practice scientology and she has all the boxes checked.

I'd rather have the Angelinas and Clooneys doing what they do than the Charlton Hestons and their incoherent quasi-senile blathering that don't inspire or help anyone in a tangible way.

Unless you believe implying that Almighty God is a rifle toting right winger is a great service to humanity.

Not a fan of Hollywood, but to each his/her own. I think Meghan has her priorities just right.

Yes, Moonmaiden, so do I. Meghan is already used to working with international charitable organisations, is intelligent, confident and can deliver a good speech or two! Nothing wrong with that at all, actress or no! She's an attractive woman as well. IF she and Harry wed then I'm sure Meghan will try to continue make a difference as a member of the BRF.

I don't recall Harry's friends or family speaking out.

Quote:
It appears just about everyone close to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle approves of the relationship!

Harry confirmed he was dating the gorgeous 35-year-old actress earlier this month, and in a new interview, Meghan's Suits co-star, Sarah Rafferty, gives her two cents on the new couple.

"I don't comment on my castmates' personal lives, but of course, it's very exciting," Sarah tells the AP. "And I'm very happy for her."

Meghan's sister on ET last night to set the record straight!

Meghan's sister was on ET last night to set the record straight. There is no real family conflict. They got into an argument 5 or 6 years ago over their parents. Meghan took her mother's side and her sister took their father's. They were out of touch for a while but talked last week she said. She also told Meghan, that she was so proud of her. She got teary eyed and emotional. She said that the person that interviewed her lied and twisted what she said etc. She never said anything negative about her.

She came forward she said because she did not want lies about their family impacting Meghan's relationship with Harry.

Meghan's sister also said that this stuff needs to stop and that Harry and Meghan are entitled to their privacy. She is 100% spot on! She is SO RIGHT!!!

I'm sure that if Harry is in love and his happy his friends and family are happy for him. Meghan's co-star was probably just answering a question asked by a journalist and was being nice about it.

You seem remarkably interested about the course of this romance yourself Rudolph, considering the number of posts you've contributed just lately. I'm convinced, if it comes to an engagement you will be ecstatic and full of congratulations for the happy couple. I'm sure you're wishing them all the best at the moment, in fact.

Then she (Samantha Grant) needs to keep her mouth shut! The more she speaks the more will get written about her sister and the more opportunities will be given for things to be twisted and taken out of context.
If she keeps her mouth shut there will be nothing to write about!
I can't help but feel that some of Meghan's family is ruining the relationship for her! Discretion people!

Her sister says they need privacy as she sits down with Entertainment Tonight to talk all things Meghan.

The same with Meghan's co-star. "I don't comment on my castmates' personal lives, but..."

You couldn't make it up

You're going to get little stuff like this, Rudolph. Just as long as people don't bring up anything really personal about the couple's relationship. Like talking about what the couple do in private. It's all good.

That's a beautiful turkey in the post above. Good job Meghan!

I wish the press would just simmer down. They are getting so desperate taking old interviews and trying to make it seem as if Meghan is actually talking. She has yet to speak to anyone in the media since the news broke out. Even Diana spoke and played coy with the press and even posed for pictures but Meghan posting a throwback Turkey picture is somehow against the rules. She is allowed to do her job which is the promote her TV show and magazine...but somehow the fact that the media takes old interviews and repackage them is her fault?

In this instance it's good she spoke out and told the real truth because that piece made Meghan look like a mean person who refused to help and support her family etc and the person lied.

Exactly. The press are doing what they do, which is scrape any corner for a story that fits their current narrative. They mention, obliquely, that the source for the information might be months old, but they package it as new information.

So Hello writes a story about an interview Meghan did with some magazine in their fall issue, which came out in September. And various people miss the details about when the interview was done and when it was published, and decide that Meghan is going around giving interviews right now.

If anyone is "thirsty" in this situation, it's the media.
