As for being political, I don't think Meghan has taken on an issues that are too political. They are only political because of the current political climate. Gender equality is a human rights issue more so than political. And gun control isn't even an issue in UK. I think those are the only issues she's taken on so far.
Yeah, this is true. And from what we can tell, I think she'd be ecstatic at the fact that she would have such a broad platform to focus more on her charity work and on advocating for women's rights. The impact she could have would be much greater than it is has been in the past few years.

Annnd the poor girl wouldn't have to worry about her charity trips being cancelled because of security threats. She was working on the school program for a good year and I'm sure she was incredibly disappointed (and rightfully so)

I would've been crushed if I were her, but better postponed than her getting targeted or something happening to the kids while she was working over there.

Its part of life that as we grow older, we come to crossroads where we have to make a decision which way to go. Marriage and family, career choices and even relocating somewhere else. There are always up and down sides to these decisions and a mature person will weigh all the pros and cons before leaping.

From what I know of Meghan, it seems that her path has already been filled with these kind of decisions. Moving from home and going different places, she's already done. Finding her footing in a career as an actress may have been the means that opened the door to doing charity work and she found her niche there and pursued them. She's had a marriage that wasn't quite what worked for her (and her ex) but they gave it a go. All trials and errors and accomplishments that make up the grand package that is Meghan.

If, and its a big if, this relationship gets to the point where they feel that together they'll be much better than apart, there will be adjustments that need to be made on both sides and they'll have each other to lean on. Giving up being outspoken may just be putting her words into a different format. Kind of like editing a script. The platform she would be able to use with Harry globally to make a difference in so many ways may far outweigh whatever she's done previously. The chance for a happy home life with a family may be exactly what her heart's desire is at this point.

Meghan just may look to be tailor made to be the perfect spouse for Harry but as with everything else, sometimes what looks good on paper doesn't pan out in real life. The only way to know for certain is to actually make the decision and leap in and start doing. That's the decision that both Meghan and Harry will need to make without any outside influences telling them what they should or shouldn't do.

I wish them both the very best.

Given that Meghan has said she wants to start a family, I can see her prioritizing her relationship with Harry over her acting career. And that isn't to say she doesn't love acting or that it would be an easy decision for her. But just reading some of the things she's written, I would say she has a high sense of awareness about herself and how Hollywood operates. She knows how difficult it would be for her to land even one role that's comparable to her role on Suits, especially considering how the industry views aging actresses. I imagine that reality would likely make it easier for her to give up acting.

As for her charity work, a few people have already pointed out that she would have more exposure and greater influence over the causes she cares about within the BRF than she has now as a private citizen. So she would be gaining more than she's losing in that regard.

I'm sure these are things Meghan has been thinking about for months now though. She's a 35 year old woman, after all. I doubt any woman her age who wants a family would be investing time in a romantic relationship without considering the possibility of marriage, children and the sacrifices she'd have to make.

Question for the forum. If Harry and Meghan were to marry would she need to renounce her American citizenship?

She would definitely be granted British citizenship. US allows for dual citizenship, so I don't think she has to based on the law. However, for appearances probably. Besides, from a tax standpoint, it's a pain to remain a US citizen living abroad.

Maybe he's been steaming open envelopes!
Actually, I wonder whether they do write to each other? Harry was very fond of texting when he was with Chelsy, but not so fond of writing. Charles said he had received one letter from him during Harry's entire second deployment in Afghanstan. They probably Skype.

We had only a little announcement , we had only one photo of the couple together before christmas but a lot of articles in DM, they are living apart the most of the times and already, the readers are speaking of the wedding, the live of Meghan as princess or her future citizenship.
But who say you that they will marry? This affair looks like the affairs that Harry had with other friends, I see nothing else.
I don't see Meghan as a future princess, she is an actress she is already 36 and she is divorced. I don't thing that she will leave her carriere of actress to live in UK.
This affair is without future

I don't know what being old fashioned has to do with Meghan and Harry. :)

There's not going to be weekly updates and Instagram posts from Meghan or Harry about their relationship. Just because it's not seen by us, doesn't mean it's meaningless or isn't serious. IMHO, the more they can spend time together out of the public eye, the better for them.

I wanted to say ' I am oldfashioned ' I have no modern ideas about the monarchy.
But if Harry is happy with her and wants to do his life whith her , I would be happy for them but I don't think they will marry , we must wait and see

It is pointless to speculate if Harry and Meghan will marry or not, as nobody can tell that for sure right now. I agree that Meghan is not exactly an ideal bride, but, again, there have been plenty of non-ideal royal brides/ grooms lately (Letizia, Camilla, Mette-Marit, Daniel, Sofia, even Maxima) and, eventually they all got married.

In fact, if Harry wanted to marry Meghan, I doubt that, on this day and age, Prince Charles, or the Queen, or the British government would object. If they did object though, I suspect Harry would hesitate to go through with the marriage. That may sound like a mean and unfair thing to say, but, let's face it, being cut off from the family is not something that Harry could afford.

I really don't understand the point of writing an article about her going to yoga class. Isn't this like the fourth of fifth time?

^^^ whar could they write? The press has nothing in thier hands:no pictures of the couple, no news. They can't always rely on making-up rumors, so they think that pics of Meghan just doing her business is better than nothing!

I try not to get involved with the marriage discussion, because I think it's way too early to get into that.

What is the ideal royal bride?

From what I've seen, European royals are over trying to find the ideal royal bride. They're looking for love and following their hearts. Their families are fully supportive of them in their marriages.

I'm pretty glad Harry is thinking outside the box. It's something I wished he started doing. I think he was stuck in this stale box and it wasn't working for him.

Im holding off on marriage and engagement talk. We don't know anything about the state of their relationship because they're so private. The media is going overboard with it.
