Yes, this is my concern as well. If she gets engaged to Harry, let alone marry him, she'll be able to do more humanitarian work. On the other hand, she'll be muzzled of anything that even smacks of controversy. From what I've seen written by her, she seems to be a very strong character who talks openly of her own challenges and her personal history. Is she equally open about other opinions? I really don't know, but I wonder if she'd really be ready for a life that involves giving up a lot of personal freedom.

We know Meghan is pro gun control, because she posted on Piers Morgan's Twitter page agreeing with his views and discussing how different she felt in Canada (Toronto) with reference to it. That's how she got to be an acquaintance of Morgan. However that shouldn't be a problem if she lives in the UK, lol. She has strong views on poverty but I don't think that would be a worry unless she starts criticising government policy in this area.

I agree that there is going to have to be an awful lot of biting the lip and counting to ten for Meghan if she should join the royal family otherwise there will be trouble. It can be done though, I'm sure. She's an interesting character, and I think she could be an asset.

It's a shame that the sister in law decided to sell her relationship with Meaghan. IF [and that's a big if] this leads to a marriage, there's one name she can scratch off the guest list.

All this totally makes sense, if you were to go strictly off her social media pages...it appears that she has remade her family to consist of her mother, possibly her father and her friends.

Honestly every family has them. Kate had her uncle who never stopped talking. Seems the tacky side is on her father's side, the mother's side have kept quiet.

The worst is that Samantha person who tries to tweet her and royal bloggers. What is the matter with her? They have 20 years age difference and she sold her little sister out like that.

Her mother's side has kept quiet.

Don't forget she won't ever ever be allowed to outshine Kate when doing her duties there will be a lot of walking the line. Kate is going to be Queen and will and must come first.
Just the way it is that's why I hope there is no rushing to the church

That shouldn't be a problem. You only have to worry about stepping on the toes of the main royals: the Monarch, the Consort, and the 1st-in-line. Everybody else is just supporting cast to those three. Catherine won't be in that group until she's a Queen, by then Meghan would likely be in her 50s or 60s, and the media would have no interest in a middle-age Duchess. I think her bigger concern would be not overshadowing Camilla during Charles' reign, Meghan would still be young and dynamic then, and the press would constantly compare the two because both were divorcees.

I kind of think Kate would be fine being a part time royal full time mother. She seems fine staying away from London and at her home in the country. Perhaps she would be fine if someone else is more to the forefront allowing her to stay at home.

I think this is a potentially a big issue. The Queen like most people is a product of her environment and may have very deep-rooted views on blacks or non-whites entering the royal family.

Many people say they are OK or are "fine" with interracial marriages. However when it happens to their family things change.😏

Then again these two women may get along as best friends, enjoy each other and even work in tandem on certain appeals as it would be likely that if Meghan marries Harry, she'll also have a part in the Royal Foundation. Both ladies seem to be comfortable enough in their own skins to shrug off any differences.

My opinion anyways.

I don't think the British people know Meghans full potential yet.If she and Harry married I honestly think they would outshine both William and Catherine...Kate doesn't like to be Outshined/Outshone so that could be bad for Meghan even though it wouldn't be her fault.I just think Meghan is more natural than the Duchess...

^I think if Meghan marries Harry she'll overshadow Kate anyway, she has a lot more charisma and personality than Kate. And comparisons will be inevitable

Once again the Queen had a set of grandparents in an interracial relationship and it's in her DNA as well...It's not the first Royal interracial relationship...No way would Harry and Meghan be dating going on 8 months and the Queen and DofE don't know about it...I can only assume that Harry speaks to his grandparents like every other grandchild does...And you can bet his father knows and if Charles knows Camilla knows and Camilla ran and told the Queen...There is just no possible way at all that the family isn't aware...

What I think is kind of weird is that Meghan is a Model/Actress in real life and a Paralegal on tv...And the exes were Cressida (wannabe) Actress/Model and Chelsy Model/Lawyer...Harry and his serious relationships all have that in common...It is weird.I know this is random but just wanted to point it out.

The Queen is the head of a multi racial Commonwealth, with many countries from Africa, India and Asia and the West Indies in its ranks. I don't think she is racially prejudiced at all. She has got on exceptionally well on a personal level with several leaders from African countries. There are members of the extended BRF who have already married or are dating non-white people.

What? Where are you getting that from?

The Queen's grandparents were George V, Queen Mary, Claud Bowes-Lyon, and Cecilia Bowes-Lyon, née Cavendish-Bentinck... all very white.

Below is a link to a picture of the Queen, her parents, and all 4 of her grandparents.

That may be out of anyone's control. Meghan is American and bi-racial. Everybody going to want to see her at every royal event because of those differences. Just watch! She will become has popular as Princess Diana. And the US is Meghan's birth place. Kate won't be able to compete with that should Harry decide to marry her.

Wasn't there some theory put about that King George III's wife Queen Charlotte may have had an African ancestor? William and Harry apparently had an ancestor a dozen generations back in the Work family line that may have been Indian, was housekeeper to a Scottish merchant in the days of the East India Company and had children by him. That's all the bi-racial history I can think of, re the BRF, but who knows there may be more!
