Ok cepe. I didn't mean to imply that Harry just attends. I'm aware that there are official duties involved. Still, it's much more informal and personal to Harry than most other events, so again, I would not be surprised if Meghan makes an appearance. We'll see.

I agree but not with him at the formal events. Representing HMQ, your country and your charity is a big deal.

He can see her as much as he wants but just not at the formal events - only if they were married. That's the protocol.

If she goes to Invictus with Harry, it'll be all about them. If she goes to Invictus without Harry it'll be all about why she isn't there with him.

If she isn't seen at Invictus there might be a story in the DM about it, but more likely it'll be "well of course she couldn't be there because she's just the girlfriend, but here's the not at all completely fabricated story about what they did after Invictus given to us from unnamed and of course not completely fictional sources."

Is she goes she should stay in the background. Their relationship is too high profile and media will talk about them rather than focus on the games. Unless they stop playing hide n seek with press and people get used to seeing them then it won't be a big deal. But she should definitely stay, not out of sight just a low profile. Not that Harry or Meghan cares but this would ease the fame hungry headlines and comments. I like Meghan and think she's getting a bad rap because she's dating Harry.

If she's there watching the game whereas he's working. it'd be absolutely normal for her to hang with her friends. If she wasn't there and it's in Canada, that'd get more mention than the rugby match people thought she'd be going to in London, which later proved to be false alarm.

We're talking about an event that's 8 months away. Who's to say the level of interest will be the same, especially if they've made multiple public appearances by then?

I think it's safe to say though that Harry will be asked about her in every interview and there will be articles written about them, regardless. Just look at how most of the reporters still managed to fit Meghan into articles during Harry's Carribean tour. I think she even made the front page of one of the papers. The personal stuff is always more interesting to the tabs.

His team probably will say no questions about her. On the tour it never mandatory that they not ask about her, That PM was just a mess when he brought her up then later offered his Beauty queens to Harry. (I laughed when I saw it.) If I'm not mistaken that was the only time she was brought up to him. The press following him would put Meghan in the articles they wrote though.

They should be like Jay z and Beyonce, they never talked about each other when they dated, only after marriage.

I don't think so. But again, we are talking about an event that's months away. I suspect the next 6-7 months will determine what will or won't happen come September.

His team is probably going to be saying that for every single event he has that has the press on sight like that from now on, or at least until an engagement happens.

Likewise, her team is probably going to be saying that she won't answer questions about the relationship, him, or his family when she does interviews.

Didn't she skip a press tour or some promotion because she didn't want to be asked about Harry?

First I've heard that.

The relationship was confirmed at the beginning of November, the rumours began at the end of October. Suits's last episode aired in September, so I'm not sure what press tour or promotion she might've done since then. Unless she was supposed to do anything for the Reitmans line... but I don't know what that would have been.

It was just people trying to get a story again, nothing more.

Whoever thinks that there won't be a high level of interest in Harry's g/f (or wife) as long as they are together is kidding themselves.

It (high interest) will be almost the level of William and Kate, pretty much as long as they live.

I think you're the one who's kidding yourself here. There is a shelf life on media interest. The media won't give two figs about middle-age Harry and Meghan. They'll have about 10-15 years in the spotlight, then that light will fade fast. 15 years from now royal watchers will be complaining that Harry and wife aren't getting any coverage, all the media attention will be on George, Charlotte, and maybe Louise Wessex and James Wessex.

Harry fate is the same as Margaret, Anne, Andrew, and Edward. It's Charlotte's fate, too.

Not necessarily as long as they live. It's fairly reasonable to expect that the interest in William and Kate will decrease as they get older; no one cares as much about a long married couple in their 40s, 50s, etc, unless there is drama within the relationship. For William and Kate this will become even more true as George and Charlotte get older and begin dating; by then public interest will be on them instead of their parents.

Harry can hope for the same; if he marries and has kids in his 30s, interest will die down in him and his wife when he's in his 40s, and by his 50s it'll be more on the potential love lives of his kids. If he marries later the time frame will change, or if he doesn't have kids then the interest will be there until it's considerably unlikely that they'll be having kids.

Consider Andrew - no one cares about who he's dating unless the rumours about him and Sarah getting back together resurface (as they do every few years). No one cares at all about Edward and Sophie anymore either, although I don't think they ever hit William and Kate (or Charles/Diana, Andrew/Sarah) levels. People only care about Anne and Tim when there's rumours that they're unhappy in their marriage.

No I don't think I am. Due to who their parents were/are there has always been a great deal of interest in both boys. I don't see any indication it's lessening.

Doesn't matter if the media thinks they are boring..it's the people who will care and they drive the media. They are the ones who click the stories or buy the magazines.

All this hiding, not being seen in public together and not mentioning or talking about each other in public is getting a little old. The world knows they are dating now. They need to just roll with it and show the world that they are proud of each other and want to show each each off.

Meghan is a college graduate, a very successful career woman, intelligent, a businesswoman, and humanitarian. I know Harry is proud of her. Now they both need to stop all this. In his shoes, I'd be in a hurry to show her off on my arm!!

Why would they want to "show each other off". They aren't immature teenagers desperate for validation from the outside world. There are two people in that relationship, not seven billion.

When they aren't wrapped up in each other, they may want to meet the other's friends and/or family. Nosy royal watchers shouldn't be a high priority for an emotionally stable couple.
