If this is true, its kind of sad that because of paps, the work that Meghan is doing cannot reach more people and draw badly needed attention to the causes she is backing. To have all the paps descend on her in India just because she is dating Harry would be totally disruptive and frustrating.

One thing I can be pretty sure of is that both Harry and Meghan have very good reason to abhor the press even more. Then again, should Meghan be backing these causes as a Princess of the UK, the press coverage would be even greater and reach more people.

Lots of pros and cons to mull over for these two when considering a future together.

"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.
Sophie and Edward failed attempt at a career/business owners is who say she has to gave it up.
Time don't change that fast.
People sure love to act like working for a family business is not real work (working for party pieces) and conveniently forgetting her charity works, she even set up a fundraising event.

Meghan herself claim she had a hard time getting roles, outside of her show, the only thing she could get is Hallmark movies... when one is on Hallmark films, its hard to get out and get shows on networks tv or HBO. Hollywood also don't pay attention to women over 35 unless they are Meryl Streep.
If she wanted to continue acting her best bet would be to stay in Canada and continue her Hallmark career after her show ended.

If I remember correctly, Kate took a part time job with a family friend's business after graduation. Even with a part time job, there were troubles because she had to be available whenever William had free time to chat. And after that, she took a position with her family. It makes people wonder how much work it really is working at the family business if someone can't stick to a part time job elsewhere. And btw, a career isn't the same as a job. A lot of teenagers take on hourly jobs when they are not in school, but I don't think that makes it a career. Now regardless of that argument, it's pretty fair to say that Kate wasn't working at the same level as Meghan is now.

And btw, I agree that if her and Harry were to marry, she would have to give up her career. Especially if Prince Charles plans on retiring his siblings once he takes over and streamline it to him, Camilla, the Cambridges, Harry and his future wife. There isn't enough royals to go around for all of the current numbers of charity.

Working for the family business IS work and it shouldn't be marginalized imo, but Kate's parents call the shots at Party Pieces, which means that if Kates marriage to Will ever fell apart, she'd still have a job. She has a safety net that Meghan doesn't have. An actress can't just disappear for a decade and then pick up where they left off.

I hope this is true! And if she did go, I'm certain that news of her visit will make it to the media eventually, and the causes she supports will get the coverage they deserve.

Yes, I saw the tweet too. It's an organization called 'Power Foundation' and they're teaming up with World Vision India.

If she went to India, then it will reach the media, a little delayed, but I suppose that was the goal when her trip was 'cancelled'.

Oh, that's good news if she could keep her India engagement. I look forward to hearing more about it.

If I'm reading this correctly, then I don't think there would be much of an issue with her finding some work if/when she were to move or marry PH. As a royal, she wouldn't have to worry about a lack of stability, so she could just take on a role here or there. However, the big question is whether or not that's even feasible and it probably isn't.

I just don't think she would have that much of an issue with giving up acting though, especially once Suits is over. She knows it's only going to get harder for her to try to make a living as an actor. I think that partially explains why she's chosen to embrace all these different opportunities outside of acting.

I'm not sure if her other pursuits would have to stop, but I do believe her acting career would have to end if they get engaged. It would be rather unseemly to see the fiancée/wife of a prince kissing random men for entertainment purposes. Times have changed, but certainly not to that degree. That it's in her past doesn't necessarily have to matter, but it cant be in her future as a member of the BRF. Although from a personal and purely selfish perspective, what a hoot that circus would be to see unfold.

Meghan would have to give up everything imo. She can't very well blog one day as Meghan 'Sparkle' Markle and the next day switch hats to cut a ribbon as The Duchess of Sussex.

I said this before but it's Meghan who will have to conform to the BRF, not the other way around. She will either have to be all in or this relationship won't go anywhere.

As far as ending an actress career, I don't think it'd be all that much to do with the roles that she would play but rather, as she is most known for being a TV actress rather than the silver screen of movies, it would be the commercialism angle of TV shows that would put her in a conflict of interest. Sponsors (advertisers of products during the airing of a show) could be construed as getting "the official seal of approval of the House of Windsor" because these advertisers sponsor Meghan's work.

One way Meghan could keep up with her acting is perhaps to support projects in the performing arts. Like Kate does with The Art Room, perhaps something could be set up as a project to get kids to use dramatics as a way to open up and act out what is bothering them. These are just off the wall ideas quickly formed in my less than caffeine fueled brain but I think you get the picture.

There is such a thing as drama therapy, both for adults and kids. There are groups in the UK for it. Oily cart and greenhouse schools, charities that were supported by the Cambridge wedding would be good causes for instance.

But not everything has to be about wellness. Honestly with three of them already focussed on mental health, they need branching out. Royals face always been involved in the arts. Meghan certainly could take on some art related patronages.


As for India they were smart. By 'cancelling' they lowered any interest and security concerns. She will have security with her, as they will know that it would eventually come out, but not the security required if the trip had been known. World vision won't suffer for the lack of media attention. They will have sent their own film crew with her as they always do. She will appear in their show and possibly commercials back in Canada. Though world vision does work all over the world, its core source of income is Canada. Her pictures being all over the daily fail wouldn't do much for their cause.

Sometimes I have to chuckle at my own thoughts. I was thinking that should the time come and the need arise for Harry and Meghan to have their joint coat of arms created, they should use the fox for slyness and the red herring for the run around they give the press.

Once again, through foresight and cunning its been managed to totally elude the sensationalist media and got what needed to be done, done. I love it.

I like your ideas about drama therapy and perhaps instead of just being a figurehead she could actually teach and actually be involved as a mentor and not just someone used to draw attention to an issue.

Also good thoughts about lowering interest and then still going to India without any fan fare. The purpose for this trip is mainly promotional. They don't need intrusive media attention to do that. Meghan always seems to be two steps ahead of the media.

I'm really positively surprised that they trcked the tabloids this way.

Daily fail will have a fit. They'll find 20 more 'scandalous' pictures of Meghan modelling or from old episodes of Suits to pay back for this. I wonder if their reporters are still camping outside her house in Canada.

If they are, they most certainly have enough egg on their faces for being duped into believing that the India trip was canceled to make themselves some nice egg salad sandwiches. I've even got the rye toast to send them with a side order of pickled red herring.

With the fox perched triumphantly atop a frustrated paparazzi!

Youre, right I was being generous. She will have to give up her entire professional life. Anything to do with commercialization and marketing does not seem appropriate for a working member of the BRF.
