I feel like the three have attended events together because Harry had no one else to attend events with, and they included him. Third-wheeling all the way

But I get that we might see them from time to time together on campaigns such as Heads Together, but they should be mostly separate as like M Payton said they can do a lot more separate. I have no doubt that "at home" they'll be a cheeky little foursome etc.

I do see Meghan making her mark on the Royal Foundation though, as that will undoubtedly continue.


I've just watched last nights interview, and maybe it's just the un-romantic in me but I found it very sweet. Like just a bit too smiley. Now don't judge but hopefully you get what I mean.

"Smiley" , yes ! I was very smiley the day i got engaged to the man I love, in fact I don't think I stopped smiling from proposal to about a week later !!!
One thing I pick up from the BBC news this morning is that President trump hasn't sent a message of congratulations !
Come on Mr President , Megan is one of your own !!

The "Guards " chapel has been mentioned as a possible venue. I am not sure how big this is as I have never been there, one of the few churches in London I haven't .

A reminder that we have the http://www.theroyalforums.com/forums...ml#post2042517 thread to discuss ideas for the wedding.

Let's also move away from comparing peoples' views on US presidents.

Megan will be an asset to our Royal Family , a woman who has had a career , can handle the media with confidence, has already established her humanitarian interests and work.
I definitely agree. How often do the Fates throw together a couple that can have such cute nicknames such as our MaiaMia_53 has come up with. Nutmeg and Ginger. Sounds like a cozy, winter drink to me.

There was a poignant throwback to the engagement day of Harry's parents. When asked by the interviewer "..........And in love?" Diana giggled shyly, blushed, and replied "Of course". When asked if his proposal had been romantic, Harry -complete with tiny giggle and a hint of blush- replied "Of course"! Diana's presence was there in more than just the two smaller diamonds in Meghan's magnificent ring.

I'm actually so in awe with Harry. He hit so many home runs with this interview. One huge one was, that he let Meghan handle the racism question on her own, completely, without commenting on it specifically. While it effects him too, through her, it's her experience.

I also noticed, that they aren't only yes yesing each other. They are able to disagree, or offer an opposing opinion, and it's normal. They hear each out and respect each other.

I also appreciated, how he addressed the demanding career and job she has/had. Her career can easily be brushed off as 'just a d-list actress', but filming schedules usually are VERY tight, taxing and demanding. I like that he acknowledged the 4 AM mornings etc.

He also didn't shy away from expressing his love and feelings for Meghan, appreciating her 'greatness', and expressing how their relationship is the first priority. Added the geek out over 'husband' comment.

He did so well.

I think the ring is very dull, I don't generally like diamonds as the main stone and I appereicate Harry wanting to put some of his mother's jewels into it, but coudlnt' he have desgined something ab it more "glamourous" and had Di's diamonds surrounding or flanking it?

The bride prefers simple and elegant jewelry. I think that takes precedence over any of our personal preference, no? It’s a beautiful ring when you look at it close up. I would say save the glamour for fashion jewelry, the engagement will be worn every day and should stand the test of time. Classic designs are best in this case.

The Duchess of Cambridge today on #PrinceHarry and #MeghanMarkle's #engagement: William and I are absolutely thrilled. It’s such exciting news. It’s a really happy time for any couple and we wish them all the best and hope they enjoy this happy moment.

So there you have it. If this is the face of a new, more modern Monarchy then it's alright with me. Congratulations Harry & Meghan, you have both chosen very well. To those that doubted, hated and poured scorn, I hope you choked on your cornflakes this morning #harryandmeghan

It was so funny yesterday on royal correspondent twitter world. Someone mentioned after this post that technically they can’t as the announcement came at 10 am and they’ve likely finished their corn flakes by then. He told them they were splitting heirs by then.

Rebecca English is reporting that Duchess of Cornwall was asked today about Meghan and said “she is a star!”.

I'm surprised that some seem to feel the engagement is rushed, when they have been seeing each other over a year!

But then, I'm not a fan of these long drawn-out courtships that last for years.
All too often, they end badly.

A fresh example: Princess Beatrice and Dave Clark.

It’s all relative. William dated Kate for 7 years, so by contrast that was short.

Dr. Jill Biden sent out a congratulatory tweet on behalf of herself and the former Vice President.

This marvellous error on the strapline is confirmed as genuine [it actually relates to the German Governmental kerfuffle]..

To those who are still detracting, I say this: Meghan will take to her new role like a duck to water, but even if she didn't, I actually believe that Harry loves his fiancée enough to forfeit his place in the line of succession, and live privately, supported financially by his father and brother rather modestly. IF. But they're going to be a brilliant team.
