Considering all the less than appropriate behavior we all know that the Royals have gotten up to the past several hundred years, to suggest a woman should be 'well bred' screams of hypocrisy.

Royals don't just stay within their 'circle' anymore. They meet people from all walks of life. The country is better off because of it.

Just to add, this staying within their "circle" thing isn't just antiquated. It's also bad science. We've seen what inbreeding can do, and when the royals stayed in their "circle" in the old days, that happened too often.

So all the European Crown Princes can marry for love and have the freedom to choose who they really love but Prince Harry the 5th in line must marry within his circle? I support Harry's choice be it Meghan or Chelsy or whoever he falls madly in love with.

Although, it's 2017, some people still have a hard time accepting royals dating and marrying outside of the royal box. Some people still think the royals should date and marry based on what's best for the country and monarchy, not out of one's heart desire.

He never had a proper feeling for a woman who fits for him IMO-and he never will!
Maybe this is one reason why Wills married this boring Katie: He might have been afraid to end up like Harry....
My fear is that Meghan may be the proverbial "rebound girl" one inadvertently feels like he is falling in love with and ends up marrying hastily. Most of the time, that doesn't work in the long run.

I don't really know who or what Meghan is to Prince Harry other than his current girlfriend....but if he decides to marry her I respect his choice. I'm just curious why most Crown Princes of Europe have married their choice without incident but the 5th in line Prince Harry possibly marrying Meghan is cause for protest??!! its really peculiar and an overreaction.

You do realize Harry haven't been in a real and authentic relationship since Chelsy. Sure, he was with Cressida, but that was in a very short period of time and it did appear he was babysitting his little sister.

These are grown folks doing their own thing and letting this relationship progress naturally.

From who should he be rebounding from? He's been single for what, 2 years before Meghan?

People are being so extra about all of this. He publicly called her his girlfriend and went out of his way to publish a letter. This is the real deal people, not a booty call, not a fling nor a rebound.

Although I tried and tried to find a credible source as to the final split with Cressida, I'm basing this on this thread alone. As of January, 2016, we all were discussing new loves for Harry so I'm assuming he'd been broken up with Cressida for a bit of a while by then.

Its now a bit over a year later and Harry has been seeing Meghan since what... last summer? That, in my book is hardly a "rebound" romance. These two people seem to be taking it slow, keeping the relationship totally private and most definitely are not doing anything rash and at the spur of the moment.

Sometimes too, when you meet that certain person that is "the one", you just know instinctively that this is it. This is a relationship I want to work on an nurture and take all things into consideration and take time for the relationship to become a solid one. People have married after three weeks of knowing each other and remained married until their golden years.

Each relationship is different and I don't think we actually can put any labels on him or her or the relationship itself. All relationships are totally unique to the people involved in them. Looking at Harry and Meghan's relationship is like looking at a package wrapped in plain brown paper. We have no clue whatsoever what is inside. All kinds of rumors, opinions and just plain made up stories abound and I don't think any of them really gives a picture of what these two people think, do together or feel.

I get the feeling that we won't know either until there is either an announcement from Kensington Palace or Buckingham Palace or we all of a sudden see Harry out and about with another woman on his arm. They may surprise us though with an appearance in public that officially states that this couple is going places..... together.

I'm even failing to see how marrying from 'his circles' would help UK in any way or form. These days contracts and negotiations aren't based on or sealed with a marriage.

Doesn't the story go that Royal Courtiers had someone else in mind for Her Majesty besides Prince Philip? They actually felt that Philip was not good enough, even though he was a prince, he was not from the right family etc. At the young age of 13 is when our Queen first saw Philip, she felt something in her heart first, before duty to country. I'm sure they've been through hardships but at least they didn't have to deal with it on social media.

I hope Harry and Meghan are taking the time to enjoy themselves. If it is meant to be, we will all know about it in due time.

People still think of the royals as if they're still back in the Game of Thrones ages.

I remember when William and Harry became teens. The media pretty much obsessed with matching the princes up with the most eligible and titled girls in the land and world. No one thought of them finding their future brides at college or at a party.

We know he dated mostly girls from his social circle prior to college (could of been others we don't know about). It's great that he had the freedom to actually consider women outside his social circle by the time he was in college. I don't think his father had that option.

That's because he was young and wasn't getting out of the palace walls.

Even with Prince Charles dating within his circle that did not prevent huge scandals for the British Royal Family. IMO, coming from the 'right' family and circle means what? Cheating, adultery and divorce is more acceptable if one is from a titled family?
If Prince Charles, the adulterous and divorced heir to the British throne can choose the partner he wants, I don't see why his son who is 5th in line can't do the same and continue the family tradition of marrying for love. Charles and Camilla now work well together, perhaps given a chance Harry and Meghan will too.

Maybe some are seriously jealous of Meghan? I mean, she does have the world's most wanted Prince. And he pursued her! That is natural especially for those women who are just so in love with the guy.

Also, think most of the issues with Meghan, is that she is American and biracial and those with a problem with her dating Harry will never have the guts to be honest and admit the truth.

Why are you always trying to drag the race factor in this discussion???
I personally, could not care less if Meghan is bi-racial or not.

Also, he's Charles and Diana's son. For some reason folks don't think any girl is right for him. Did the same thing to his brother.

We only know fairy tale version... woman who was living for 2 years gives her number to another man and starts communication...to pursue better opportunities...
