I think they will try to find a balance between letting her get to know her new country but they also need the UK to get to know her. I think they are aware of overexposure and it seems that letting her go home after the announcement allowed them to manage the mania part so that it does not overshadow other royal engagements.

I don't see her hiding away, although she does a good job of ghosting the media. She mentioned getting an internship with the UN. I could see her doing the same thing again before jumping in head first.

Looking back at this thread, I have a few questions. How many "full-time" members of the royal family are there? How do they divided up the duties? How many events would Meghan be expected to attend? Will she give speeches? Does she get paid or get an allowance?

At this point in time there are the following who are currently considered full time QEII, Charles, Camilla, William, Kate-(Cambridges are new to full time), Anne, Timothy, Andrew, Edward, Sophie, Richard, Brigitte, Edward Kent and Alexandra. (13) (Sometimes there is discussion as to whether or not Timothy is full time.)
Phillip and Katherine Kent have more or less retired from full time duties though both still make appearances. (2)

There has been no statement yet from KP regarding Harry becoming full time yet though I do I believe that this will happen in the near future. No statement yet regarding Meghan either, so we'll just have to see.

Meghan can be expected to be at the annual national events: Remembrance Day, Trooping the Color, Family events: Christmas/Easter, weddings, christenings etc.. She'll join in for other events related to the patronages that she adopts and most likely anything to do with The Royal Foundation of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry. (Expect a name change after the wedding.)

I believe that this is Europe's largest pool of "working" royals.

Meghan will not be paid an allowance from the state. Only the Queen and DoE receive money for their engagements. The Queen assists her relatives for their engagements from her Duchy of Lancaster money. Charles does the same for himself, Camilla, the Cambridges, Harry and soon to be Meghan with his Duchy of Cornwall money.

In the future I believe that we can expect Meghan to give speeches.

Harry is full time. KP announced it in the same statement as William and Kate. Hence why Harry has had CC events almost every day...on par with William (probably more though because of IG).

Here is the official statement regarding the Cambridges. I've read through it and have not seen any statement regarding Prince Harry.

https://www.royal.uk/update-kensingt...cambridge-2017

I've searched for one that is of a similar nature for Harry, but cannot find one. If you know of one, could you please share it. Thank you in advance.

Here is the link to all official press releases from the monarchy for 2017.

Harry hasn't been announced officially as full time, although compare his number of engagement to his brother's for 2017, he's probably not far behind. I suspect an announcement would come in summer of fall of next year after his wedding. I do feel like marriage is seen as an adulting turn of events at times.

Yes that is what I recalled regarding Harry that no official announcement had been made during the past year.

I wouldn't be one bit surprised if it is announced that Harry and Meghan will remain as part time working royals after their marriage as they'll be given the time and the breathing space to adjust to married life and perhaps start their family. By all accounts that I've read, having children is high on both Harry's and Meghan's list.

Basically, they'll work for the "Firm" and the Royal Foundation much like Will and Kate did when they first married. I do not, however, expect Harry to pursue any kind of a career like William did with EAAA.

I can picture Harry singing "Little nest that nestles where the roses bloom. Meghan and me, and the baby makes three. We're happy in my, in my royal heaven."

As always wise statements Osipi. They're embarking on the at least two and possibly three of the big three changes people undertake during their lifetimes: Getting married, setting up in a new home and possibly having a baby. Add to that Meghan is starting life in a new country and in a very public role. In order for this marriage to have a secure foundation, I'd hope that the couple are give the time to adjust to their new way of living.

Baby plans doesn't factor into them being part time. The announcement of William and Kate's full time transition not long before the baby announcement. They'll adjust her schedule due to pregnancy. That doesn't affect full time or part time working royal. I think William and Kate had more time away because of his EAAA position and also because they were relatively young. But with the Queen aging and Prince Philip retiring, more support from the younger generation is needed. I wouldn't expect them to remain part time for very long. I don't see them getting the same amount of time to adjust as the Cambridges.

Ran across this pic today from the past year of Harry, W&K at one of the patronages (presumably Meghan will be joining them)....it's such a lovely gesture and speaks to the closeness they share...I think Meghan will mesh very well into the group.

If Harry doesn't have another job, doesn't that automatically imply he works full-time for the firm (including his work for the royal foundation, IG etc)? And because of that Meghan as well?

I have little doubt that Harry and Meghan will become full time. Harry basically is now even if they haven't officially said it. I would guess after the wedding and their new titles are given that we will hear about their status.

Meghan, like Kate, will likely do more part time stuff because I do suspect she will become pregnant fairly quickly. They will do their tour and will be in Australia for IG in the fall but after that I think she will slow down a lot (if pregnant).

I am curious to see what she takes on though. She spoke pretty passionately about finding causes dear to here especially having to give up the ones she was connected to.

I feel like gender equality, particularly with young girls, would be a big issue for her. While we’ve achieved a lot in the developed world, there Are still soft issues, like being assertive and believing in what you can accomplish, that is different between men and women. These things are quite hard to change once you’ve reached a certain age and some opportunities might have already slipped by at that point.

Also Meghan has spoken out about insecurities for young people before as she experienced it herself. She often talked about being kind to yourself and knowing you are enough, and that’s because she came from a place where she didn’t feel like she was enough. I remember reading a piece she wrote for The Tig that talked about how she felt in high school and the pressure to fit in. Even though on the outside she was popular (she was Homecoming Queen after all), she dealt with a lot of insecurities and was quite harsh on herself on the inside.

Oh yes. I definitely see something involving young girls. She is pretty outspoken about female empowerment and I believe that will be high on the list.

Didn't Meghan once work for the UN in some sort of ambassadorial role? She could take up something like that, advocating equal rights / women's rights etc

She is/was an advocate for the UN entity for gender equality and the empowerment of women. As well as being a global ambassador for World vision and a counsellor for One young world.

If they want her to focus on British charities for now, One young world is a UK based charity.

I hope Meghan doesn't do feminist causes; they are too political and controversial.

Honestly I don't think she's going to do anything too political. You can get involved with causes that help women without approaching it from the political angle. She can roll up her sleeves and expose the need for women to have access to sanitary health without lecturing and pounding the pulpit.

IIRC Camilla is involved with some 'women's issues and manages it without causing controversy.

There is nothing political about 'feminist' causes. Nor do you have to put a 'feminist' spin on women's causes. Feminist has a completely negative connotation for so many people.

Camilla works hard promoting charities protecting women against domestic violence. Is that political?? Eugenie is involved in modern slavery causes. I don't see why Meghan cant continue to fight for women's health and rights.
