To even suggest, that she's supposed to close down all social media because she's dating Harry is crazy. They're not engaged, they have not been seen together, but she has to change her life around just because she's dating Harry. Crazy.

Someone commented on the daily fail comments section, that if the paparazzi bothered her, she should do her shopping online. And she's attention seeking going out in the first place.

agreed. Social media is a reality. You will be hard pressed to find a celebrity today who doesn't have it. Well anyone under seventy and betty white probably does. The days when you could rely on an agent to get interviews and events and that was enough ate long gone. Even royals are seeing the power of social media. People thinking she should delete her accounts and blog, are loving a decade ago. She shouldn't have to sacrifice her career for a new relationship.

there are so many actors with social media accounts from young to old. It is the new normal as many actors now tweet their fans while their show is on. Meghan is not doing anything out of the ordinary, it is the new normal.

If you are being harassed as she was ( Harry told us she was )the first thing she would be told would not be on social media for a while.
I'm not living a decade ago I know the world is on line myself included.
A photo of her dog in a jumper with a Union Jack on it is going to bring a lot more followers and trolls ( I know she put a similar photo up a long time ago so why do it again now )with it comes the terrible replies and Kate is dragged into. If you think the comments on the daily mail are bad the ones on personal accounts on line are worse. She will have gotten a lot more followers than pre Harry and lot more bullying trolls her choice but then you can't complain. You invite people into your life

You are living a decade ago if you think she can just disappear. Shopping online and closing social media will do nothing but cause the media to go crazy looking for her. She has a career and it relies on her public image.

Wake up. Celebrity fans live On social media. They live to ge pictures of dogs and turkey sandwich hints. The more followers, the more likely she is to say get other jobs, helps her profile. Asking her to disappear is asking her to destroy her career prospects for a brand new relationship. Unlike Kate who was willing to not to work and wait around for years, Meghan has a career and her other activities to think of and not simply Harry.

If I remember correctly, Harry mentioned racial undertones, harassing her mother, and trying to break into her home. If she gets racist abuse on social media, of course it should be called out.

Many actors promote themselves through social media, it's part of today's pop culture. Harry, or anyone, would be out of line to even suggest that she shut it down for a few month long relationship. A relationship, that many people don't even think will last, but she should change her life around for it anyway.

It also sounds awfully like victim blaming to tell her what she has to change, so she won't get harassed. She has done nothing wrong, she shouldn't have to change.

We all know, that if this relationship lasts, they get engaged etc, she will have to do huge changes in her life, closing her social media down being one of the minor changes. But to demand she change already, 6 months or so into the relationship is just not right.

The Daily Mail doesn't have photos yet of Harry and Meghan. That's the big one that they are really waiting for. Then they can write their headlines. Until then all the tabloids are scratching around like hens in a farmyard.

It has been widely reported that Prince Harry's girlfriend Meghan Markle is favourite to play Rebekah Vardy in an upcoming rags to riches movie about the life of football star Jamie. Appearing on Monday's Good Morning Britain, the mother-of-four shared her delight over the surprising possibility.

Thank goodness for the mail informing me that it's flowers she's carrying not like her shopping trip when people got upset because all they could see was toilet paper.
Where would we be without the daily mail and it's update about " what's Meghan got today ". Another couple of months of this plus a bit of instra in jokes and goodness we might look to Trump for light relief
Call me when she's flashing the ring

The biggest mistake that Meghan could ever make is changing who she is because of who she is dating. I've already seen the change in how she is perceived just in a recent post. "Prince Harry's girlfriend, Meghan Markle....".
I seriously doubt that she's up for a role in a movie just because she's dating Harry.

Like a lot of celebrities and high profile people, Meghan probably has social media sites that are public but also has a private account also. She probably uses the public one to post to people that follow her and the private one to talk to her friends. Harry included.

I know Facebook pages can be public or private and Twitter doesn't seem to be private at all and know nothing really about Instagram. I agree with the statement that social media is the new normal and its not going away anytime soon.

Oh, no-one takes any notice of the DM. Except for its photographs it's just a ridiculous newspaper.

She can have a private Instagram account and most likely does as well as her fan based one

Twitter allows you to protect your tweets so only the people you allow can see them. So you can definitely still be online via social media but with tighter private settings so everyone can't see everything.

While I think that it would be better of Meghan protected her social media for any good reason, I see why (even if I don't agree) she is not taking any measure: she is an actress, and not in the same "private person" mode Chelsy or Cressida were, more or less.

What people have to understand is that Meghan is an actress, is acting in a TV series, has fans and thousands of followers. Why should she close her social networks? And she is not posting anything about the relationship, people who are guessing things, even the bananas I didn't find anything too much.

The more I think about it, the more I'm inclined to think that the social media pages that the public can access is where she'll just post general information, photos and nothing indicative of her private life (well... other than those bananas I heard about). She most likely does have other accounts that has very secure privacy settings and most likely under a pseudonym.

As has been stated before, she's been running these social media accounts and her blog long before she even met Harry and there's really no need to change what she has been doing. All public pages are subject to idiots, flamers and trolls. Hers just attracts more basically because she is an actress in a relatively successful TV series who is dating a man that has been deemed the "most eligible bachelor in the world" by some accounts.

Yes I agree. I think it would be hard for her to avoid being the center of attention as it is unevitable for many reasons. She is the novelty, she has a "interesting" past (at least for the media), and she is famous. That is not something that can be dismissed.

I looked at some of her videos, including an old cooking segment she did on the Today Show, and I just think this young lady is the total package. She can act, has fashion, she can cook, she's an humanitarian and seems like a very down to earth gal. I just hope people try not to reduce her down to an attention seeking social climber. Using and abusing her royal boyfriend and connection to further her own career.

This was done to the young Kate Middleton back in the day.

For some reason people try to break royal girlfriends down to size and put them in the crap box. It's usually other women that's doing this too.

Changing the subject a little here.....

Has Harry met Meghan's mother yet? Last I read, Harry was planning a trip to met them. Does anyone know of any updates on this?

If this relationship is headed towards marriage then Harry needs to speak to her father and her mother!


If he has not met them, why not?
