I think it's time for people to get serious and be respectful of this couple are trying to build. I think it's way to soon to get into all this wedding talk too.

Maturity and perspective? If I was into that I wouldn't be posting!

Harumph! Why not? Isn't that the point: marriage and babies and all that jazz?

Given that Meghan is already 36, I dont see them living together for long. If they want to have a child or 2, which Harry seems keen on, they need to move along to the wedding!

Meghan is 35. And Sophie had James at 42.

She's 35 and I think people just need to give this couple the time and space to get to where they want to go. Throwing wedding talk in their face 24/7 can't be much help.

It's not 'in their face'. I sincerely doubt that either of them are reading this thread. I'd be willing to make a bet on that. High stakes, too.

She's talked about wanting a family in an interview before this.

We all know it gets harder to get pregnant the older we get, especially with a first child. Sophie had already been pregnant twice prior to having James at 42.

One of my SIL's had her first child when she was 41 ...my MIL had her last child at 42. I think it's more common nowdays to see older mothers. A friend of mine didn't have her first child till she was mid 30's. She had another right before 40.

I'm not saying it's impossible! But statistically, your odds of getting pregnant in your 40s go way down. BabyCenter | Advice and support on pregnancy and parenting Why Can't I Get Pregnant? Solutions, FAQ & Advice To Have A Baby

I believe she had her first child at 39. So she wasn't exactly young either at that point. But these things vary, and fitness and health before certainly has an effect. Sometimes there are young people who have fertility issues, you just never know.

Geesh... these two haven't even had a public outing for all to see yet or are anywhere near an engagement (that we're aware of) and we're already talking babies.

I have no clue why or can hope to explain it, but I always had the feeling that Cressida was more of a "friend with benenfits" type of relationship rather than having a serious feeling to it.

I have a totally different feeling with this relationship. The privacy, the standing up for mistreatment and the protectiveness Harry displays doing this and in the few pictures of them we have been able to see.

Then again, maybe I'm just an old lady and a romantic.

Regarding Piers Morgan,

Meghan and Piers were Twitter friends, because Meghan commended him online on his campaigning on US gun control on his then programme on CNN. She didn't then rush to meet him in the US. He didn't see her in Canada.

They met in London when Meghan visited in June and they went for a drink together. There was some conversation about texting and potential boyfriends as she was single. She presumably, as an American, knew nothing about Piers's British tabloid reputation.

Meghan was seen with Harry at Soho House a couple of days later. Piers didn't write about this in any article then.

Camilla Tominey broke the story of Harry and Meghan in October. Piers didn't rush to print then either. The KP statement came out in November due to a huge tabloid frenzy. Morgan didn't write anything then either. It was only in fact weeks later that he wrote about his meeting with her in June.

So, if as some on here suspect, Meghan is some manipulative publicity crazy hound then Piers let her down. Miscommunication, memo lost in the mail?

Or maybe, just maybe that June meeting was just a drinks between Twitter friends and when Piers wrote about that meeting which had happened months before he was at a loose end, and thought it would be a nice little story.

I think some people just want this relationship to be a mere fling - which this is not. Both Prince Harry and Meghan are too old for such games and they are full fledged dating until an engagement takes this relationship to an entirely new level.

The sooner that time comes, the more we will continue to deal with an over analysis of the meaning, purpose, and viability of this relationship. I'm bracing myself because once they are engaged, the gloves will really come off for varying opinions on social media.

There are people here who think H&M are getting married and people who think they will break up. It can also be anything in between.

Including 'casual'

Hookups and casual relationships with feelings not really involved don't require statements of defence of the girlfriend from KP. Harry's heart was showing there, whether this ends in marriage or not!

Why else discuss anything? It's all about the wedding dress and flowers, plus that first bundle of joy. I have my priorities in place. Just sayin'.

I have to agree, but a lot of it might/could be explained (maybe) by the fact that Cressida was very young (in age and experience) when they hooked up. I often wonder if what we saw was Harry's doing (in reaction to the ott coverage that drove away Chelsy). It's in the realm of possibility that Cressida was behaving exactly the way Harry instructed her she should (meaning to be protective). Speculation, but would explain a lot about what we saw. Cressida was clearly destroyed when either she stood up to him or he dropped her. Hard to say what happened there. (Poor kid).

What might be different is Harry has matured and he realizes that he has to put himself on the line for his lady. This fact that Meghan is biracial suddenly makes it all sensible. Meghan has to be tough (in a good way), and savvy (to survive). You want to be in her sphere, I suspect you need to respect her. She's not going to agree to anything close to what Cressida put up with (in her cluelessness). That's the way I'm seeing it right now. Give me a moment and I'll change.

Yep. That's about the size and shape of it.

Can we trust the report (I've been looking around) that Harry introduced Meghan to Kate and Charlotte? 'Fake News'?

It will be interesting times, not so? But if anyone can handle the blowback it will be exactly someone like Meghan, a biracial woman with a career and her own interests (charities) in sync with Harry's. Meghan might well be the making of Harry, and if he is unfailingly a good man with her (no temper, no subtle 'royalese' class markers), then I'm sure she will make the right choice and he'll be the happier for it. Just hope, if it goes that route, that Meghan is fully aware of the 'cage' she is opting for. There will be trade-offs, of course, especially if there is 'true love', but even that can be strained. I wish for them, should they step it up, the kind of relationship I see between Edward and Sophie Wessex.

Agree 100%. This is a mature woman, not a fan, or a 'subject'. If he wants her in his life he has to earn her respect and trust. Well done, Harry.
