Right - very true. But the Daily Mail is ostensibly driven by page views and profit - and while it doesn't justify their lies, it certainly de-personalizes them. The randoms posing as "experts" on Tumblr get nothing out of making things up about Meghan - just the pleasure of being malicious, I guess. Oh, and attention. They get lots of attention - and validation from people that believe the stuff they come up with.

fandom psychology is pretty interesting, yes.

True, but that ain't new only to Meghan, tumblr and before tumblr, forums have made up lies about Catherine, Chelsy and Cressida just to be malicious. And that not only to girlfriends/wives of British Princes. They do that to any women who dare date a famous men.

Yes, of course. Every celebrity is subject to this sort of thing. Doesn't make it any less repugnant.

I would be greatly surprised if Harry were not created a duke upon marriage. Unless he marries without consent, I'd say a dukedom is almost certain.

Just maybe I stated that a wee bit wrong. We won't know which royal dukedom will be Harry's until the day of the wedding. I agree that the royal dukedom is practically a given.

Being a new poster here and in reading this thread about Harry/Meghan, it sure is filled with lots of negative energy. One thing I learned in life that written words do come back to haunt us and that every word said shows the type of person we are to the world when on forums like this.

Saying that I hope for the very best for Harry with or without Meghan, he seems like a real down to earth young man who has his head on this shoulders and wants to do good in this world.

As for reading about Meghan and never seeing this show called Suits before, it seems like she is also of that caliber of a person with her work ethic and interests in helping others. I would like to think that Harry knows a phony when he sees one after all I am sure he must come across many of those in his life

Haven't read the article, but the headline makes me think about the fact that IF Meghan were to
marry Prince Harry, she would have to give up her job AND all potential future earnings as well - that is, she would have to accept that whatever income and assets she has...is all that she'll ever have. I mean, she could invest her assets and accrue interest and all that, but still - it's a pretty daunting prospect. Love - the secure and abiding kind - is worth the sacrifice but still - it's a sobering thought.

Oops! That wasn't an article! My bad.

And who says she'll have to give it all up? I disagree! I say we wait and see. I read she may not have to give up a thing.

"Suits" only because it's filmed in Canada. But Harry may let do one more season while they are married for her character to wrap things up. Again, we'll see.

And I am well aware of what Kate had to do and those before her etc. I don't care. Number 1- times are changing; 2- Kate did not have what Meghan has, a career, a business, and Charity work; 3-Meghan is American, not British and her being married to a Brit and a prince doesn't change that fact.

I've deleted and edited a large number of posts. As a reminder, we expect members to base their statements on published stories, rather than on wishful thinking, or unsubstantiated gossip/rumor.

The discussion about tiaras has been moved to the Tiaras for Prince Harry's future wife thread. Also, please remember that this thread is about Harry and his relationships. If you want to discuss the Middleton family, please go to their thread.

Meghan will have to give up a lot financially though, and that will be a real dilemma, I feel. Will she give up Suits (if she hasn't signed a contract for a seventh season of the show) and move to London in the next few months, trusting to Providence to Harry and to their future marriage? What if it doesn't work out? That would be a considerable sacrifice made for naught.

On the other hand, if Meghan waits until the ring is on the finger Royal engagements are traditionally short. Would there be enough time to learn about the BRF protocol, Britain, British way of life etc etc? The financial sacrifices under those circumstances too would be quite considerable, but at least there will be a marriage at the end of it.

I'd be very surprised if she has not committed to season 7. I believe that cast originally had 5 year contracts, and then it was renewed. Typically it would be for 2 years. Season 7 is likely the last season of Suits though. I know people are thinking they might not date that long before getting engaged because of her age and the fact that they want children. I still suspect that an engagement won't be announced until mid to late 2018 with a wedding in 2019 if this goes to the next level. If that's the case, she'd probably move to London at the end of 2017 when Suit wraps up filming. She can start on the so called princess lessons before then if they do get serious enough. But she'll move there for at least a few months before an engagement is announced.

Yes, we'll see. They may never marry. And this is all hypothetical, of course. But there is a precedent - most royal wives have had to give up their day jobs.

The U.K. Is not some strange foreign land with new customs and a language to learn. Yes, there are differences, but not something she needs a great deal of study in. And even if she is in London, she isn't going to know what it is to be a royal until she is one. She has spent a lot of time there, and there are plenty of books. Time she can spend in her off time. There isno need for her to live in the uk to learn British culture. Perhaps when suits ends, she will move. There is plenty of acting opportunities in London. And she can carry on her blog and fashion line from London. And her work with the un and world vision.

I don't think learning British culture is the imperative here, I think one of them would need to move so that they can proceed with their relationship on the same continent lol. They need a bit of time and proximity in order to find out if the relationship has staying power.

I don't think a move is essential for that to happen, or that it is even a good idea at this point. In my opinion, it would make more sense for Meghan to move only when she is sure the relationship has staying power. If either of them have doubts, then I think her spending more time in London with Harry now will give her more clarity. If it is true that she's still in London, then perhaps that is how they are approaching it.

I think the only real differences in our views are semantic tbh. I think We can both agree that they need to spend more time together on the same continent. I just think that anyone in a long distance relationship should spend at least a little bit of time "living" (on a trial or short term basis) in the same city as their would-be spouse.

A man on Twitter has just said he hoped Meghan was having a wonderful time in India and that they met.Also a women's foundation in India has posted it was wonderful "interacting" with her..So it sounds like she did go to India...Unfortunately they told this on social media if she was hiding so if paps really want a picture,they're on it! Just in case it's deleted this time!
