Very nicely said by Camilla.

Ok there's no sound but this is cute...taken after the end of the interview
To me it looks as if Harry at some point says there was one moment in the interview that he felt they (he?) said something wrong but other than that he was happy with the interview.

Thank you, you have said it better than I could. I couldn't find the right words. I think all this over-analyzing and looking for things that aren't there (and if they were, how would we know?) is getting a bit tiresome.
Indeed, just take what's being said for truth. We have no reason to believe otherwise.

IF. But they're going to be a brilliant team.
Didn't that ship sail? The queen approved the marriage (otherwise we surely would have heard by now), so forfeiting his place is not on the table?!

I saw on Twitter where a little girl gave Camilla a card for Harry/Meghan and Camilla said she'd pass it along. Very sweet!

Reacting to the DM's take on the story? Really? Mbruno, you know the DM better than that.

And taking a snippet of a comment not in context to twist things?

Yeah I wasn't really reading the lips..just watching how they acted.

I do like Camilla's response a bit better than Catherine's (that seemed rather impersonal and general with her 'every couple would be...') but they are different people.

It seems that William, Catherine and Harry have made it a point NOT to comment too much in public about each other's private lives (recently, Harry deflected questions about Catherine's pregnancy) as they seem to think that is not their place. Based on the engagement interview I don't have any worries that they don't get along or wouldn't be happy with Harry's choice.

So, yes, I am quite sure they are genuinely happy for Harry that he found and is engaged to be married to the person he wants to spend his life with!

I agree. I think Camilla is just more open than Kate... Kate is extremely reserved/private - probably out of remembrance of how she was treated in the press - she probably feels the less said, the better. She always looks slightly wary/uncomfortable with the press.

Camilla is just like ... whatevs!!

I think everyone is thrilled - they've all been waiting for Harry to settle down for a long while, so this is happy news.

Kate’s comment might have seemed guarded to some but I don’t think you can read anything by that. I’m sure she’s thrilled. Everyone wants a reaction from the family but to parse every word is silly

I believe that we'll see the two couples together for engagements with the Royal Foundation now and then.

Well I guess I was right: she was interrupting him....

Engaged Meghan Markle and Prince Harry interviewed by BBC | Daily Mail Online

The ""Do it again!" is very much proof that she's an actress. She won't have many "takes" when she is "live" at events though!

And, if so, Harry doesn't seem to mind at all either.

According to Rebecca English Harry and Meghan paid a visit to BP today. Harry waved to crowds and was 'grinning like a Cheshire cat'. Another cuppa?

It might have been just a courtesy visit to tell Grannie how they thought the engagement interview went. Or perhaps discussions are ongoing regarding the choice of wedding venue. I'm resigned to St George's, which is beautiful, but it could be WA.

I can't imagine what else....too late for luncheon and to early for tea (with the Queen).

Camilla Tominey said a briefing at Buckingham Palace is expected today regarding location and at least the month of the wedding. Probably to finalize some of the details?
