Well, I for one think the Cambridges and Harry does a great job with everything that defines their public, or ''folksy roles'' (if we can call it that).
They are incredibly good at walkabouts (so is Charles, while Camilla is a bit more shy), and their waving is more than good enough for me. And if there's one person Meghan should learn to wave from, then it's the Queen's late 1960 to about 2013 waving. - Don't get me wrong, HM is still good at it, but she does it to a lesser extent these days (she is 92).

And then to the Queen Mother: If there is one woman Meghan should not take lessons from, then it's her.
QEQM's public, or ''folksy role'' was very old-fashioned and outdated for today's world, included her very feminine way of waving, and her way to look down on people who were underneath her (which is not that strange, because she was born in 1900).
And then to her walkabouts: Well, she was pretty good at it, although she didn't do many, and if we compare them to the Queen's walkabouts from 1970 to 2012, then they couldn't even be described as proper walkabouts.

So, Meghan should just be herself, and learn from Harry and the Cambridges, then she will be fine. - And I think she learned a lot on Wednesday too, when she was out and about with HM.

I too noticed that The Queen don’t wave like she used to as well.

Oh, I certainly don’t think Meghan should copy The Queen Mother 1940’s-1970’s royal waving. It was elegant, but it just wouldn’t work today.

I’m just saying that I hope she wave with more confidence as The Queen Mother or even The Queen did. The Cambridge’s and even Prince Harry don’t wave with much confidence. It’s almost like they’re embarrassed by the crowds. They could learn waving from Crown Prince Frederik and Crown Princess Mary.

I know all of this is new to Meghan, but I just hope her royal waving is seen as a sign of appreciation and welcoming to those who’ve waited in long lines to see her.

I think her hand starts to ache quicker now -the Queen is already 92, body becomes less and less fit with a passing of time.

I can’t wait to see what official roles and what charities Meghan will take on. I know everyone is waiting to hear her first major speech and see her solo official engagements. So much to look forward to.

After a few engagements with the Queen, I'm so looking forward to Harry and Meghan on their own engagements. All these official engagements are so nerve wracking. I prefer the less structured events pre-engagement.

Press coverage has been nerve wracking. It will be nice to see her natural demeanor again in engagements instead of trying hard not to put a foot out of place. Learning is great for those more formal engagements but as we see her demeanor with the Queen will not be the same as an engagement on the beach that is more relaxed.

Meghan is getting out there and taking on her royal role with relish and, to me, without reservations or hesitations. These things are just the things that the public sees. The Queen obviously enjoys her company and Meghan has been accepted wholly and completely by her new family and Harry.

Harry couldn't have chosen better.

Meghan has done an impeccable job and should continue to grow and make her own mark.

I've deleted several off-topic comments and posts. This thread is not about protocol, nor is it about how the media treats various royals or Harry and Meghan's relationship. It's for discussing Meghan's future duties and roles. Also, let's please cool it with the back and forth in-fighting and the personal swipes at one another.

I wonder when Meghan will launch herself on royal stage with her list of charities, late summer or early fall? I know she can’t wait to get to work.

Summer time is pretty quiet for royals. I suspect we may start hearing some patronages, and see some solo events, in early fall.

My guess would be early fall. They'll release a short list of patronages that Meghan will be taking on and state that things are in the works but I don't expect a slew of solo engagements to start until after their down under trip and the Invictus Games.

Then, over time, Meghan's patronages and charities will grow steadily. We've a lot to look forward to.

I don’t know, I kinda think Meghan is ready to branch out on her own for her patronage’s. I know the list will steadily go up though. Perhaps the start of some solo engagements in the fall.

I think she will even do some solo engagements during the Invictus Games. Attending some games and presenting medals.

Just a question, will they be considered engagements? I would hope she would do a solo before they go to Aus.

I do think attending the competitions, presenting medals and attending receptions are considered engagements.

I don’t think it’s going to take her too long to conduct some engagements on her own. I’m sure Meghan and her KP officials are working behind the scenes on her charitable interests and official launch. You could tell how eager she is to do her own thing during the Royal Foundation forum she, Harry and the Cambridge’s conducted earlier this year. Just had the get the wedding out of the way.

Yes, when it is an official tour, anything they attend is considered an engagement. Why engagement counts go way up after a tour, as they usually have 3-4 engagements a day.

As Harry and Meghan will be in Australia officially, not a private trip (as any trip even for charity is if not officially invited by the country), their events at IG should count as engagements.

I'd assume that as Kate and William were able to spend time with their children in the early years, te queen would want the same for her other grandson.. that he and Meg would be able to have asome family time before they become full time royal workers. And Meghan is in her mid 30s, so i'd imagine she would want to get pregnant soon
