Getting high profile roles because of publicity is an overstatement. If that were the case, many aspiring actors girlfriend/boyfriend of high profile stars or children of high profile stars who have big following on social media/tabloid media would be getting high profile roles.

Let's not forget here that Meghan is in one of the most insecure professions in the world. About 90% of all actors and actresses are unemployed at any one time. Many have to have another job while they constantly audition. Knowing that, the fact that this woman has a regular role on a TV series and has appeared in films, both on the big screen and the small, is one hell of an accomplishment. Most actors and actresses never get that chance.

And I agree that the fact that Meghan tries to make a difference in her private life, in the charities and causes she has taken up is wholly admirable. As for the Tig site, what is she to do in order to be more discreet? Neglect it and allow it to die, sacrificing the probable $100,000 a year she earns from it, simply because she is dating Harry?

Regardless of the state of her fame and fortune due to her career, one thing stands out for me. She was successful on her own merits before Harry came into the picture and should the relationship fizzle out, she'll be comfortable enough in her own skin to continue to live her life on her own merits without him. She doesn't need Harry to make or break her in her place in the world.

Perhaps this is what Harry admires about her. He has a woman that has built up her life how she wants it to be, has taken on causes and issues and charitable works because she wants to and shares things in common with Harry. He's met a woman that sees Harry the man and not Harry the prince with a huge bank account. Every person who has wanted a strong, loving relationship wants that special someone that sees them for who they are and not the outer trappings.

What points this out so much for me is the fact that the few and far between reports that we've been able to establish as fact show that this isn't a couple that relishes living the high life with glitzy $5K a night hotel rooms, being out and being seen with the top A-listers or reports of expensive gifts of cars, jewels and over the top trinkets but a couple that are more the "just the two of us in some remote place" or staying in playing with dogs and cooking their own food and just focusing on each other.

They've kept to themselves and have kept their relationship private and its driving people crazy. They've also continued to live their public lives and do what they do knowing they don't have to gush publicly about each other or be in each other's back pockets all the time. If there is any woman in this world that could love Harry and take him as he is with all that come with him, I think Meghan is a pretty good contender for that role. However, it is up to them to decide. I'll just watch from the sidelines and wish them well.

This is true, I also think that her website is a plus especially when more famous actresses like Blake Lively fail at the lifestyle website brand.

IMHO if she wanted just fame and publicity she is doing WAY to much work when all she needed to do was hit the red carpet, act stupid and say stupid things. But instead she writes essays, gives speeches and does charity work. If she only wanted fame, she would know that the easiest way to just get fame is to not work but just be stupid.

"They've kept to themselves and have kept their relationship private and its driving people crazy"

Apart from some people on this forum I don't think many care what their doing. At first it was all exciting who is she what does she do etc but I think now most people think there are much more important things happening. Unless there is an engagement I don't think anyone much is going crazy.

Eh, the Daily Mail runs 2, 3 articles about Meghan every day - their coverage is increasingly passive aggressive, and the comment sections are always packed with vitriol from their inexplicably aggrieved readers. I think the press furor had died down because Meghan and Prince Harry have been very, very low profile - Meghan hasn't posted to her personal IG in over a month - but the interest and "the crazy" is still there, and it's not contained to this forum.

I thought it obvious too, which is why I was surprised that some posters felt that her high profile as PH's girlfriend would not increase her acting prospects. It has nothing to do with her acting capabilities (which I know nothing of), but I do not think that Hollywood players would pass up a chance to have the publicity of PH's ex associated with their project.

No matter what, associations and disassociations will always be part and parcel that make up the life story of a person. Should Amal someday divorce George Clooney, she will forever more be associated as being his ex. Its the same the world over. What impact on a person's life that has depends on the individual themselves.

Personally, I'm happy that things have died down and more important news has become a focus except for those that actively enjoy every little tidbit about Harry and Meghan they can find. One thing for sure is that Harry and Meghan themselves aren't doing anything themselves to fan the flames to keep gossip alive and flourishing.

Just to clarify, all the information on this relationship, I get from this thread right here. I don't go looking for it elsewhere and don't feel the need to.

The less news about them the better for me
If anyone is silly enough to read the comments on any article on the DM your going to find rubbish unless it's changed in the last couple of years which is when I gave up looking

If Meghan was an A-list movie star like Jennifer Lawrence, Natalie Portman, or even Emma Stone, would she still have to give up her acting career upon marrying Harry?

Would the public respect/like her better if she was a more established and esteemed actress?

Wouldn't matter if she was Jennifer Aniston. It's how the BRF do things. The wife of senior royals is expected to work for 'The Firm'.

Yeah, I don't have the Daily Mail app, so I have no idea how news is packaged on that platform. But I'm in the US and we've just elevated a demagogue to the highest office in the land, so I totally agree: there are far more important things to worry about.

I will say that I've noticed that the Daily Mail's readership seems to LOVE the new US President about as much as they loathe Meghan and Harry as a couple.

If thats the case then I can't see why any self-respecting woman with a career would marry a royal :/

My thoughts exactly. As privileged as Harry is, I almost feel bad for him. Being his wife - with all the scrutiny and criticism and the constraints on personal freedom - is a very, very hard sell. His last two girlfriends decided it wasn't worth the trouble.

Well, I suppose you'd have to ask Crown Princess Mary of Denmark (real estate and conveyencing) Queen Maxima of the Netherlands (International banking) Sophie of Wessex who had her own PR firm, Queen Mathilde of Belgium (speech therapist) and Queen Letizia of Spain (journalist and high profile news anchor) that question. Also Grace Kelly had a huge stellar career as an actress, which she gave up. I guess they all fell in love, wanted to marry, and also thought they just might be able to make a difference to people's lives by adopting various charities and causes within their husband's country.

We don't know what broke up Harry's two previous serious romances. He and Chelsy were very young when they dated, but the romance was always tempestuous. They had a huge fight when on holiday at the beginning of 2009 and the relationship degenerated in the two years afterwards into fights, separations and reconciliations until it died.

It's become perceived wisdom that it was Chelsy who walked away because she didn't want a Royal life but that's by no means certain.

The way the original story broke about the Cressida Harry split was equally ambiguous. It read as if Harry found her needy and the relationship constricting in the People article which broke the news.

You would think the press would give him a break. Of course they won't get total privacy and that was not the reason for the statement. But the complete overreaction has been bonkers. If Meghan is his non-negotiable I hope they can weather the storm. If there is someone else for Harry I hope they know all that they are in for. I suspect that Harry and Meghan will do what alot of famous couples do and just totally retract from the public and go totally underground so that the press will start wondering if they are still together......just hit the reset button.
