A backup plan in case marriage doesn’t work out :


”Meghan Markle was reportedly lined up to play Daniel Craig's next Bond girl.

The former Suits actress is said to have caught the eye of James Bond movie bosses while playing Rachel Zane in US legal drama Suits.

However, the 36-year-old star's blossoming romance with Prince Harry is believed to have hindered her eligibility, with producers reportedly believing the relationship made her 'unattainable'.

“The role more recently has gone to actresses deemed to be rising stars, and Meghan certainly was seen as that before her relationship with Harry became public, afilm source said.”

Too bad Meghan didn't get the Bond offer before Harry. Would have given her and the queen something extra to speak of.

As for Meghan as the next Bond girl, well, the producers can say anything now!
Who's going to contradict that, and it gives them some free publicity.

The article never said they actually spoke to her or her agent about it - just that the producers realized she wouldn't be available.

I doubt she was in the running. Or maybe they wanted to talk to her thinking their relationship wasn't going to last and they could ride off her "royal ex" status for a while but then they up and got engaged. Either way it is some easy publicity.

It should be pointed out that Tom Jr is estranged from his father. So I'm not sure who told him his father is extremely hurt.

Honestly, the two people that come out and spoken are the ones that's estranged from...like everybody. Whereas no one else in the family that talks to each other is saying anything. I find that quite amusing.

“Will be” is what the brother said. This is just him opening another can of worms.

I think Harry’s words were misinterpreted and the media ran with it.

TBF I don't see how they were misinterpreted? He might not have meant what he said but when you read what he said it is clear how it sounded. He may have misspoken but I don't think, on this rare occasion, the media are wrong in how they are seeing and reporting what he said.

Here is the quote from the BBC website:

Asked if there were family traditions to explain to his future wife, the prince said: "Plenty. We've got one of the biggest families that I know of and every family is complex as well."

"She's done an absolutely amazing job. She's getting in there and it's the family, I suppose, she's never had."


He could have meant its a different family from what she is use to, a bigger family from what she is use to or even a closer family. But that isn't what he said.

He did say it. I think he was speaking off the cuff and won’t make that mistake again. I’m sure he’ll also apologize privately. I don’t think we’ll hear from Meghan’s parents but the media is a different can of fish.

And how he know that? He has been estranged from his father for years. Will be or is, meh, his father wouldn't tell him either way.

I see nothing wrong with what Harry said.
Meghan was estranged from her father at one point.
Her siblings were so much older, and she saw little of them after her parents divorced.
So I don't see how anyone could consider them a very close family.
Basically it has been Meghan and her mother.

The half brother wants his 15 minutes now. No direct quote from the father, but the press will hunt him down for comment. Jr. and Sammy have proven Harry's point to a degree; these two know they won't be invited to the wedding and they are lashing out and collecting any payouts from the tabloids. No word from Doria and her side of the family; but anyone who sold Meghan out should expect to watch the wedding on TV from their living room couch.

Meghan wasn’t an orphan. For Harry to say the Windsor’s are Meghan’s first family is not right. We know she’s close to her mother.

He could have meant its a different family from what she is use to, a bigger family from what she is use to or even a closer family. But that isn't what he said.
In the context (looking at the entire answer to that question and not just a single sentence prior), I do think he was trying to make the point that the family was big and bustling and loaded with tradition in a way she hadn't experienced before, but when it came down to summarizing in that final statement he essentially left out a word to modify what sort of family experience he was talking about.

Keep in mind, the reporter had initially asked him how Meghan's first Christmas with the family went and he answered with a rather skilled (to the point that I assume it was prepared) response that turned away from their personal experience to talk about how important and enjoyable Christmas is for many families. The reporter asked again (as is a reporter's job when they don't really get an answer) and his second go was clearly more off-the-cuff, the sort of thing where you're only able to think a word or concept ahead of what's coming out of your mouth. And it seems as though he left a word out.

But the way that KP has since responded makes me suspect that Meghan told him afterward that she's A-OK with the wording that came out in the moment.

I agree. I didn't want to say it yesterday in the other thread. But I do think Meghan is ticked off at her half siblings. I don't see her ever acknowledging their antics publicly, but I see the doubling down by KP on his comments as something that would've only came out if Meghan was ok with it.

He didn't say they are the first family she's had. Close to her parents isn't the same as having a bustling large family like this.

And honestly, I took Harry's comments to mean that she just fit right in and they all feel like she's family and she them. We all know sometimes in-laws can take awhile to feel like family, even if the paper says you are.

I think it was just an expression of Harry's protective nature. He wants to make sure Meghan feels at home with an extended, close-knit family.

But of course the guy can only state facts that the public can verify and woo betide him if he says something "wrong"...

Storm in a teacup.

I'd be appalled if my future husband spoke in public in detail about my family, its not his business to do so in the first place. Even worse in Harry's case, whose family is not exactly role model in many regards.
