As far as the 'rumours' of a Christmas party go, that's just the DM'e deputy tabloid editor, Richard Eden making a guess. If Harry was seen buying a tree the DM is just assuming a party will follow. I doubt they have a source in Harry's inner circle.

We had CCTV pictures of William and Kate at a convenience store buying a frozen pizza, but no photos from multiple times Meghan and Harry are together but tons of Meghan doing errands in Toronto 🤔 Seems weird when everyone has a cell phone.

Store owners no. But the other customers in the store? People on the street? I highly doubt Harry isn't recognized in London.

And why would people lie? The store owner and the employee? From what I read, the boy who attended them did not recognize them and I think it would not be nice for them to pick up the cell phone and take a picture, it would be embarrassing

Exactly skippyboo...that's what is so weird about these sightings. Why all the sudden no one is posting these pics? Harry is a very popular guy and any relationship in the past has had media all over them.

Kate can't even get on a plane without someone taking a cell pic. Just seems weird to me too.

I think it's great if people have done an about face and even the media is going to let them alone....I'm just more cynical that this is the case I suppose.

When Meghan is in Toronto she is photographed every single day. Meghan going to yoga. Meghan leaving yoga. Meghan out shopping. Meghan taking her dog to the vet etc. The DM keeps the world updated on her every move.

When she's with Harry though, they seem to be able to come and go and no one bothers to snap a pic. Things that make you go hmmm...

People lie for all kinds of reasons...free publicity, attention etc. Not saying they are or aren't...just that there's no proof of anything being said...

I believe it was another American they where talking too and according to the Telegraph they spoke about living abroad?!

It shows how casual and unassuming they are.

It's weird.

But maybe the weather is helping them go incognito on the streets. This time of year people are bundled up in the colder regions, it's much harder to recognize celebrities in winter-wear unless you are specifically looking for them.

OTOH, it's easy to track Meghan in Toronto because the paps just follow her from her home, that's what they do with Pippa in London, photograph her leaving her townhouse then follow her to wherever she's running errands.

I remember when William and Kate were dating, there were quite a few sightings of them out and about, but no photos. Same with Chelsy and Harry...sightings, but no photos. So I don't think it's that unusual that there are no photos yet.

Now that the paps knows she's in London, I imagine they'll be hanging around KP hoping to get a photo.

More details from the salesperson: Prince Harry and Meghan Markle Go Christmas Tree Shopping in London



“It was totally clear that they were a couple. It wasn’t overly affectionate or anything like that — they were just doing cute, couple-y stuff, like making each other laugh and being excited. Just lots of touching and laughing. They were just like any other couple.
The Brooklyn native says that Markle immediately picked up on her American accent.
“She was like, ‘Oh, where are you from?’ I said New York and she told me she was from L.A.”

The papps knows where Meghan is in Toronto, so she's always photographed. I remember it took almost 1 year to appear a picture of Harry with Cressida. The problem is that people who are against dating refuse to believe, even if a photograph of them appears, I think they would not be convinced

Paparazzi agencies usually have photographers around the world. If the paps are following Meghan in Toronto, they should have known she flew out of Pearson airport. Putting two and two together that should have alerted paps in London to be on the lookout.

That they're supposedly walking around London together without anyone taking cellphone pics seems odd to me.

Now if pics appear of them coming and going from KP then I will believe it. There is huge money involved in getting the first pic. If they are out Christmas tree shopping somone will take a pic.

I could care less if they are dating. Harry's already confirmed it though so no pics needed.

I simply don't trust the media when they comment on it.

Haven't we seen through the years that the British royals are pretty good at getting out and about on their private time without being photographed much? I think the protection details there in the UK have probably cultivated some pretty good ways of getting their folks to a place without being noticed and with helping their protectees pick the best places to go; once they're in a space small enough that they could make eye contact with the other people around them, many looky-loos will be suddenly feel self-conscious about pulling out a phone to take a picture. The danger zone is when they're out on the street, where lots of strangers can see them but still be just far enough away to feel like they won't be noticed taking that photo.

There may be pics out there, but who's going to publish? Some of these royal reporters know what's going on or at least have a hint of what's going on. Emiliy Andrews were very happy to let us know the couple went tree shopping.

Meghan was pictured entering Kensington Palace in November after shopping though.

I know they're dating . When I said I'll believe when I see pics. I mean that Meghan is in London.

I imagine that if they needed more room for a holiday party (if there even is one), Diana's old apartment has been converted for use by William, Kate and Harry if they need it. Its where the Cambridges met the Obamas and where Kate set up business to guest editor the Huffington Post for Mental Health Week. There should be no problem for Harry and Meghan to use one of the reception rooms there for a party if they needed it.

If I had to guess, since they're setting up a tree at Nottingham Cottage (or maybe a reception room) that any entertaining will be done there and from the looks of what we know so far, it would be a very casual and informal occasion without formality among friends. I get that feeling from seeing just how down to earth and "normal" these two people come across.
The Obamas met them at Will and Kate home, not in Obamas old apartment

Is Harry often pictured on his own, when out and about? Meghan is pictured in Toronto, because she's easy to find. The paps know where she lives. This sighting came from the tree business, though. It woukd be bad business from the sales person to snap out their camera, or ask for a selfie. This sighting is just too detailed, revealed with full names and the name of the business, to be fake. It would be horrible business move to make it up.

Harry already revealed, that they're dating. Is it such a stretch for them to spend time together, too?
