I don't think Meghan should have her own thread until an engagement is announced.

How can someone be attention seeking when they barely tweet, post or even promote their own show?

She has over 1 million followers not to mention the reach the article gets from being repeated in other publications. The article is from her POV but respectfully amplify the hard work of others. I think that is a GOOD thing!!

As Jacknch said, it's all about the relationship.

If Meghan and Harry prove long-term, she will probably get her own thread.

Time to move on.

She published this awesome essay in Time today to honor International Women's Day and it made me like her even more. I'm going to be so happy if these two get married.

I have gone back and forth on this young woman, but this article(if she wrote it) puts me firmly back on Team Meghan.

It provides her with a gravitas that makes her seem much more than just another of Prince Harry's girls of the moment...she is intelligent, articulate,aware AND gorgeous. And if that's not "Royal material" I don't know what is!

Good job Meghan.

I wonder where their next appearance will be. Not Pippa's wedding, Meghan won't get an invite. Probably the social season, maybe the polo or Wimbledon.

Although, The Duchess of Cambridge will be in the royal box quite a bit as Royal Patron, so it would have to be on off days.

My bet is the polo. William and Harry usually have several matches throughout the season.

She's written other essays- I loved the one about her biracial identity. She seems very intelligent and committed to social issues.

Northwestern isnt exactly a charm school and her degree is in international relations, so she's far more appropriately educated than many other married in royals, especially some of the more recent ones have seriously lowered the bar.

I doubt that Harry will go to Pippa's wedding. He doesn't hang around with any of the Middletons in his spare time, though if he and Meghan are engaged by May/June they may go to other weddings together.

Why on earth would Meghan care whether Kate is in the Royal Box at Wimbledon or not? If she goes over to England for the tennis this summer it will probably be to see her friend Serena Williams play in the finals.

Also, same thing for Wimbledon as for weddings. If Meghan is accompanying Harry or is engaged to him she'll sit where he sits or in the stands, which is where Pippa and James Middleton often sit.

I love this topic . Thanks for all your intelligent opinions. Viewing the Daily Mail leaves me depressed.

What causes issues on forums such as this is the sad folk who insist on turning royal life into a competition.

It isn't.

Is your life full of competing with your sibling? your in laws? your neighbours? Your friends of friends? If it is, you are SAD.

The same applies in the BRF and any other royal family. You competing on their behalf would not be appreciated.

Just enjoy the variety of people who make up a family - just as (hopefully) you do in yr own.

Out of curiosity, why would it have to be off days if the Duchess is there?

Because Catherine will be front row centre, and Meghan would be buried in row 3 or 4

It would lead to a lot of stupid headlines and I'm sure they want to avoid that.

Much easier for Meghan to attend on an off day or when The Duchess isn't there.

I'm going to hazard a guess that the above considerations won't impact Meghan's attendance at Wimbledon. 'Buried' in row 3 or 4 will make little difference if it's the match-up she wants to see in play, methinks.

I doubt that would be a consideration. I mean, it would be very clear why Kate had precedence, to anyone.

We'll see if she goes.

I disagree. We just spent pages talking about optics and 'milestones'. Catherine is a senior member of the family and royal patron of all British tennis.

The tabloids will have a field day from photos of Meghan sitting in the 'cheap seats' while Catherine is fawned over.

The press is looking for any little signal to either proclaim marriage or a breakup. Besides, I doubt Catherine has even met Meghan Markle.

If she attends when Kate is there but isn't seated with Kate, it'll be speculated that she and Kate hate each other.

If she attends when Kate is there and is seated with Kate, it'll be speculated that she and Harry are engaged.

If she only attends when Kate isn't there, it'll be speculated that she's been told by the Firm she's not allowed to attend when Kate is there for fear of stealing focus from Kate (because of course, she and Kate hate each other).

If she doesn't attend at all, it'll be speculated that she and Harry have actually broken up.

There's no wining if she tries to plan her Wimbledon viewing around what the press might say.

Suits is set to start filming again in March/April I believe. I don't know if/when she'll be doing any promotional work for it.

She's had credited TV/film roles since 2002, although Suits is by far the biggest role she's had. Everything else seem to have been really small roles on TV shows (single episodes) or movies... the "bigger" non-Suits roles she's have had either been in TV movies or indie movies.

She seems to me like a smart woman who is aware of the limitations of a future career in acting; she's written about the struggle he's had with finding role because she's biracial, and I doubt she's not aware that in a post-Suits world it'll be harder, given her age.

Well said. But you have to consider the maturity of some of the posters. They read rubbish like the Daily Mail, and they then see the royals as being part of some soap opera script. So these posters then try to write the script, to prop up their own favorite "character". It's a matter of not distinguishing from fantasy and reality.

The BRF is a family of real people, they're fairly boring - hence the need of 'scripts'. Some BRF members have different talents/personalities than others, but unless a member is an unethical criminal, no member is a superior human to the other.

So qualifying which member deserves to be a part of their own family is super creepy. But it's usually the same posters who eagerly hope for pap pics at the expense of a stalked royal.
