Reading the comments in the DM articles of Harry+Megan make my blood pressure rise. They make it seem like she is some evil manipulative witch and say that she will be the "downfall of the monarchy". Those people are absolutely nutters.

The trolls in the DF comments section are a bunch of racist, sexist, homophobic, ignorant, sick, spiteful bullies who hates everyone. But they represents a very tiny minority of the UK public, and many of them are from other countries.

I do think that the commentators are their own specific little group where each one of them try to outdo each other in the nasty department. It doesn't matter who the article is about, they're there to put on their nasty and work daily to improve their nastiness.

I do not and will not click on anything from the Daily Fail anymore. Its not worth my time and insults my intelligence.

I agree, that only way to explain Reitman deal would be a better deal with some other company, but I'm thinking they would've spilled it already. Every company would want the attention as soon as possible, and I haven't read anything.

It was such comments from such racists, sexists, and nasty people that prompted Prince Harry to step up and defend his girl in that now famous KP announcement.

So much truth. I don't even read those disgusting comments anymore.

Maybe she's just what he needs...

The trajectory seems pretty clear.

I wish Meghan well and I trust she will make the right decision for herself. Marriage with Harry will not be a piece of cake (IMHO) but she's a mature woman. I have been heartened by the news that Harry was willing to share, that he has engaged counseling, even recently, but I finally listened to the interview he gave. I'm keyed to the sound of a voice. He's got a lot going on there. I wish him well. Meghan may be the ballast he needs. My concern will always be for Meghan but the good thing is she will enter the marriage (if it goes that far) as someone with her own life and resources. She should be okay.


Good point. But also keep in mind that Harry was in love with Chelsy and rumor has it he did pop the question to her. Harry was serious. Chelsy it was who demurred. So I think we can assume Harry is serious in this case, too. Think maybe he was convincing her over the Easter visit?
I felt this too. Listening to that gave credibility to what I felt when I saw some of the Jamaica photos.

Many people described Meghan as marking her territory. I couldn't understand why anyone would think that necessary... I mean her bloody boyfriend/prince had it announced from a palace, no less! If any one was into public claiming, it's Harry! (And I will admit my romantic side, kinda loved it).

To me, he seemed stressed and she, in a very tactile way seemed to be calming him down. Stroking his arm, whispering to him if needed, hugging him, my partner and I often do these things...

I'm also thinking, that Meghan wouldn't want to be a hidden secret, and Harry wanted to 'claim' her.
I see, as a way of protecting her. I actually hadn't been aware of Meghan at all until I came back on TRF recently after a long hiatus. Took me by surprise. That may be why the whole thing feels very accelerated, an all-of-a-sudden kind of thing since I had no clue about it. Didn't see anything about it in the glossies in the check-out line at the market.

Good points. I see it the same though as mentioned below the problems The Tig text was being given by the tabloid press may have been a large factor in its shut down. She can always go back to that later if she wants, bigger and better, as they say. No permanent loss.

Good points. I hadn't been aware of the racism stuff until just recently. Good for Harry, then! Well done!

Good supposition, but I wouldn't think so necessarily. A time lag between promotions is not unheard of for lots of reasons (high profile attention of the kind Meghan is getting currently is not necessarily a positive for certain product promotions) . But I think it may be as suggested, things are serious so she is holding off on endorsements for now. That's something she will be able to pick up easily again later on if she wants (which I know will cause a hullaballoo, but so it will be).

So, in short, Meghan may be clearing the deck to focus on Harry (something Kate did, and what we just do when we're in that mode), but it's not necessarily at engagement time. Once she moves to London and they've been roomies for 6 months, okay.

Yes, I see Harry as high maintenance. If it's mutual, that's good. Question is, is it? But that's for them. Does Meghan want to take that on? I've had one such involvement, and while so much of it was great, the neediness was wearing after a while. In my case, I decided I couldn't cope for the long haul.

Why would Harry be 'high maintenance'? He has spoken of his problems in that interview yes, but it's been years since he was seen falling out of a nightclub, he's never been outed by anyone as aggressive towards them, apart from one photographer in his teens.

No girlfriend has ever complained of his behavior towards her or we would have read about it long ago. Friends have described him as quiet and non-assuming rather than bad tempered, spoiled or demanding.

As for neediness, during the Leveson Inquiry, didn't something come out about Chelsy texting him dozens of times a day while he was in Sandhurst? I've followed him for over a decade and never heard of him being high-maintenance, so I'd like to know where the impression comes from?

I didn't/don't see him as high maintenance, but I did think he looked pissed off and I put it down to the paparazzi intrusion.

He's got a temper. That's high maintenance in my book. Anyway, it's not my lookout. Meghan can take care of herself, I'm sure. I hope. Last I'll mention it.

Most people have tempers when they are roused. There are stories of Charles pulling a sink from a wall in a temper. William has a temper, I'm sure, as do the rest of the royals, but that doesn't make them high maintenance.

Meghan doesn't appear to me to be the kind of person who would put up with neediness or someone who storms at her every five minutes. She's had enough experience with men to know if someone is self-sufficient or not, especially in a longterm relationship.

To me high maintenance means they need constant attention, spend lots of money on themselves, very particular (obsessive) about things.

People have tempers...everyone has their on snapping point. I've never thought Harry was much different than most men when it came to that.

What from, Harry? Sorry, bad joke!

There might be threats that we know nothing about. We know Harry has to have a number of RPOs because of his service in Afghanstan. There are all sorts of nutters around and Meghan's not popular on some social media. She could have been getting some awful mail, hence the private security.

Regarding such a simple observation. We all have different impressions and 'takes' on people. I deal a lot with public image kind of people. I have my reasons for what I 'see' and sometimes for me the 'markers' are so obvious that I assume others see them, too. This is a good reminder for me. I see Harry differently than you I guess, and I have my reasons, just as you have yours for what you see. No big deal. The personal tone suggesting offense is not what I was seeking to elicit, truly. I thought what I was saying was obvious. Guess it isn't, so as stated, I will move on.

Take care.

The studio assigned security to her when the relationship became public. But I believe that's only when she's working. She doesn't have security when she's off doing her own thing. Although ET has reported before that there were people at her house installing security cameras. I believe that was around the time when Harry flew to Toronto straight from his Carribbean tour. One of the recurring actors on Suits, Malcolm-Jamal Warner, did an interview and said there are A LOT of security on set now. This level of attention not only attracts threats, but also paparazzi that are willing to break the law to get a picture.

I think the Suits people got Meghan some personal protection round about the time that tabloids and social media were going full pelt, as far as I remember. Just before the November KP statement. These aren't RPOs so perhaps something else has come up in the past week. A lot of nasty people around, some threats perhaps.

Let's be honest, the DM is mostly written trash talk . . . but their photos are the best, which explains why I click. Interestingly enough, there was a sidebar video advert on the right border with Meghan Markle for Reitmans! Go figure.

I was up last night and some made for TV movie of hers was on. Other than reitmans, I had never really noticed her until Harry. I don't watch suits, and her commercials for reitmans were always on. Now I am getting TV movies and she has been guest judge on chopped junior.

The DM has certain opinions if every Royal and they will never change. They make sure to twist any story to fit that opinion. All young royals, the Cambridges, Harry, the Yorks, all become victims to it.

Reading the comments is sad and pathetic. Sad because there are so many readers who take the DM as biblical truth and are blind sheep. They can't seem to think for themselves.

I'm not sure that half of the DM commenters believe what they're saying, to tell the truth. I think most just enjoy the experience of having a go at people who have more money, a better lifestyle, etc, but can't answer them back. It's just a way of venting spite. It used to be done down the pub, via a letter to a newspaper or over the neighbours' fence. Now there's a much larger arena.
