Does she love me for myself? As spiteful cynics doubt Meghan's motives, how besotted Prince Harry might seek advice from our 'agony aunt' JAN MOIR* | Daily Mail Online

Did someone actually get paid to write that article?!

As for keeping the reationship front and centre.. IG post of bananas cuddling vs a press release from KP saying Meghan is PH's girlfriend, telling the press to not harass her & flying to meet her right in front of the said press knowing it will be front page news soon. I'd say Prince Harry is shouting his adoration for Meghan from the rooftops.

I see a laughing Meghan and a smiling happy Harry (who apparently broke protocol and took a Canadian detour en route back to the UK following his Carribean suite of engagements), these two are having fun; until and if it becomes legal, only then can royal protocol (whatever that would entail) can get involved.

If I were those two I would keep it just so for as long as they can.

Well until they are thinking of extending that happy family of two!

As for it being to soon only the couple in question would have the answer to that. Look, when you find the right one, you find the right one. With the world such a mess at it is a love story is a bright spark. Who cares about richer or poorer, what colours we are. Love is love. I for one hope it works out for them. Like all couples in love, they deserve a happy ending. Let's pray that they get one.

I love this post!! I agree 100%!!

Well it is good you get a laugh out of it, the world still turns, people have a right to their opinions. I'll be here picking out china patterns.

It's a great temporary diversion from the awfullness of 2016. You laugh at us carrying on....we all win.

There's a few historic 'American Princesses' (so to speak) who might be looked at for the reality of noble households/families.

I wish I knew who she was, so what she said would be relevant.

Quite a few, and Princess Diana's great grandmother was American.

Indeed. As an American I'm cringing so bad at some of the Disneyesque giddiness. It's like they see the BRF as a super sized Debutante Ball, or a Dumbo the Flying Elephant Ride for adults. I partly blame shows like The Crown on Netflix for this, they highlight the glamour and intrigue and underplay the tediousness. People are having trouble distinguishing between fantasy and reality.

Is Harry finished for the holidays with royal engagements?

If so Meghan doesn't start filming Season 7 of "Suits" until March and if Harry is free until after the new year, I wonder if he'll head back to Canada for a few days before Christmas.

I am sure they send New Years Eve and Day together. I know she'll be going to India for two weeks for a School Project she's working on. Him in the Caribbean for 2 weeks and she'll be in India for 2 weeks in January. Wow! Those two...

How do they do it?? Impressive!!!

Speaking as an American, I can understand the attraction that the British Royal Family has for the everyday American with their remarkable expertise at pomp and circumstance and the glamor and the glitter of the royal crowns and tiaras and the continuity of it all put into one very nicely wrapped package. It is easy for the average American to equate the glitz and the glitter of public appearances and royal weddings with living in the extreme lap of luxury and butlers to provide anything wished for on a whim.

Coming here to TRF and actually paying attention to the details of these people, one comes to realize that within the gilded fishbowl, there is also a lot of loss of freedom, duties and responsibilities to uphold even if the royal happened to wake up with a headache that day and most importantly, just how much this family does believe in giving back and trying their hardest to make a difference in this world.

Some of my fellow Americans like to laugh and make fun of royalty, but usually the first ones in line to see a senior royal visiting and would kill to be in their presence at a event.

Disney has ruined people's idea of royalty. The hard work is never highlited, but the glitz and glamour of royal life is always front and center.

Personally I'm more baffled at the need to tear down every person (mostly the ladies, though) whom the royals happen to date. Some people seem to think Harry is a naive teenager who needs their motherly control and 'advice' so he won't fall into the traps of evil golddigging women.

I'm not particularly following this romance but would like to say that this is getting very little press attention in the quality papers in the UK

The Mail Online is a beast and is run separately from the Daily Mail paper. The people who respond on the Mail Online site are mainly trolls. So please do not think that these represent the view of the general public of the UK.

Interest will sharpen when/if the couple are seen together - Harry knows this. He would also agree with posters on here that real life isn't Disney and BRF life is difficult. It's the price you pay for privilege.

Good luck to them and I hope it works out how they want it to.

Oh, that part is always disgusting. It's part of the effort to infantilize men and not hold them accountable for their actions. For many actions that would have a royal lady facing condemnation, a royal man will get a slap on the wrist and a "isn't he a naughty lad, tee-hee!". A rowdy male royal gets called a rock star, a rowdy female royal gets called a train wreck.

It's not just with royals. For example, when Tony Romo choked in the playoffs, media and fans were eager to blame his gf Jessica Simpson. She was a bad influence on him, a distraction, a jinx, yada yada yada. Of course they've been broken up for almost a decade now and he still hasn't been to a Super Bowl, but it must be the work of some she-devil.

I know. Some folks somehow think they have to tear down these royal girlfriends and basically put them in the trash box. It's usually other women doing this though. A woman will tear down another woman in a hot second, and think nothing else about it.

This same thing was done to the then Kate Middleton. They tried to have her for breakfast, lunch and dinner whenever possible. Some still do this.
