I don't have anything against a wedding late this yearor next but I also have experience of long distance relationships and always being in "honeymoon mode" when you see each other.

Well, taking everything with a "big "if", it appears there is perhaps some indication of 'speed' occurring in Meghan's public life. However, to refer to her lifestyle blog and contract with Reitmans as being "controversial aspects of her public career' beggars belief. We are in the 21st century and referring to ordinary "work" that the ordinary folk do for a living is somehow less than savoury and remember the word "actress" is no longer a polite euphemism for "lady of the night!".

As we have followed the 21st Century European royals grow up we have seen that they, just like many of their unroyal friends, have partied, had girlfriends/boyfriends and then lovers. No one was expecting William's marriage to entail a ritual virgin sacrifice but rather that he would marry the woman he had lived with for years and obviously loved. The same applies to Harry, as the years have passed we have all hoped he would find someone he could love and would love him back, even with the major drawback of his family circumstances.

To most of us, it seems that perhaps he has found that elusive lady and that unlike his brother, his dearest wish may come to fruition in a matter of months rather than years. If so, good luck and if not, well we can only hope.

^Exactly; there's nothing wrong with how she makes her living and she has a right to try to move up economically and live her own life. The way some people go on, you would think that she had been trading favors for money! Her contract and blog are her right and I actually think a lifestyle blog is fun especially if you get freebies from grateful designers. Lots of people would do that if they had the guts to believe in themselves enough and frankly I do think there's a huge amount of ridiculous outrage. There isn't really anything controversial about her at all. A normal young woman living her version of the American dream.

Thank you so much!!!
I agree 100%. She doesn't need Harry's money and people still complain!

I now think there will probably be a wedding, and I am hoping it will be at Westminster Abbey.

St. George's is nice, but well, it's not the Abbey!
I'd like to see it happen this year, but more likely it will be in 2018.

He'll want this wedding to be memorable, I see a state wedding. It's what Britain needs. It's what the world needs. Joy and Happiness.

Prince and Princess Henry will name their son, David, after himself and the country of Wales. Their son should be styled a HRH, Prince David of Wales.


Harry can only wear an army uniform because that's the only service branch he served in. The Blues and Royals, Harry's Regiment, I believe don't have a red uniform. The red uniform like William wore are the Guards Regiments and Harry doesn't have an association with any Guards units. Also any kids would not be of Wales. They would be of Harry's Dukedom location. He stops being Harry of Wales when he becomes his own Duke like his brother did. William's children will become of Wales in time when William becomes Prince of Wales. Harry's kids will remain of Dukedom like the York girls.

I don't get why getting perks for doing write-ups or mentions is such a bad thing. If she wants freebies and she wants perks, more power to her. People make a living and how they do htat is their business. There's no controversy at all. People are just making things up because they want a drama and they want to find something to complain about. Meg doesn't owe anyone anything and I for one am sick and tired of how a potential consort is supposed to have all the virtues of a saint and no self-interest.

It's interesting to me that people keeps bringing up ancestry to bring down Meghan. What we should be talking more about is that this is the first self made millionaire to marry into this family if she indeed does marry Harry. Indeed, she would also be the first self made millionaire of the bunch as well, isn't it? So instead of trying to knock the girl down for something she can't control, this really is an impressive thing. And as someone already mentioned if she does marry Harry, she'll be near the top of the class food chain. She'll outrank those high society that some are claim could shun her.

Wishful thinking more likely

And if we had pictures of his security detail, you'd claim that as old as you did with the pics of Harry. The fact that he's not at the Easter Service was telling, don't you think?

Harry not being at Windsor for Easter doesn't mean anything. He hasn't attended Easter at Windsor since he was a child.

She hasn't said anything. So believe her on what. Literally, the woman has said less about this relationship than Harry, but this is all on her. That's what I find hilarious. We know where the Queen is at all time because she is the monarch. We don't even know where William and Charles are at all times if it's their personal time. That's because they, along with Harry, has personal time and doesn't report to us. We are finding out this the same way we found out about William's Verbier trip. From the paparazzi and tabloids.

If Harry marries Meghan, she will be given a coat of arms and her family tree will be researched for generations. Just a fact.

Another fact is Britain can be a snobby place. It's a lot better in 2017 than it was even 30 years ago.

So suggesting Meghan will possibly run into some nasty people I don't think is a stretch.

Catherine went to Marlborough College and comes from a wealthy Home Counties family and she experienced it.

There will be a small number of voices that whispers ithe snobbery. But again, if she marries Harry, she outranks those voices instantly. They'll go away just like they have for Kate. Will they be there? Sure. Will they matter? No.

That picture pretty much looked like Harry to me, or they've hired his double to act like Harry to visit Meghan. I don't get why though. Harry clearly stated that he and Meghan are dating, it shouldn't come as a surprise that he'd visit her on his free time.

Don't pick at each other guys, or the thread will be closed.

I'm starting to think an engagement at the end of 2017 with a spring wedding in '18

I still think it's too fast but I suppose other factors are at play, like starting a family.

Not really picking apart each other. Just picking apart theories that have so many holes in them to begin with.

I think they are getting serious (duh!) but I don't think marriage will happen that fast. I think the timing of the Tig and the Reitman thing is so it doesn't all happen at the time engagement is announced and causes all kinds of distractions. Bottom line is, she is still in Suits and I just don't see an engagement announcement until season 7 finishes airing. Again, goes back to the distractions from the engagement and wedding itself.
