Meghan only lives in Canada because of her job.
Lots of shows film in Canada instead of the USA because production costs are cheaper.

It's not like she is Canadian, so why use any Canadian symbols?

Some people do jigsaw puzzle, some paint with oils and some make mosaics out of ceramic tiles but a relationship is always painting a picture.
we know little or nothing of their relationship. They may just be in it for fun, they may mean it to be serious but do the RF In general want the affair to go on towards marriage.
IMO relationships esp marriage are extremely difficult and that's proved by so many marriages failing. and the RF wont want a marriage that' is likely to fail.

As far as Meghan creating a coat of arms, there are many different symbols and colors that she could use as each one has its own specific meaning in heraldry. The bear, although a symbol of California, may not symbolize Meghan in heraldry meanings though. It will be interesting to see what she does come up with should a coat of arms be needed.

The thing is that these are two human beings that first and foremost are concentrated on their own relationship with each other. Where it is going, no one knows except for the two of them.

No one, including the RF, has any clue if a marriage is going to last or a marriage is going to fail until that marriage actually happens. One would have to have a crystal ball to predict a failed marriage and sadly, mine is in the shop being cleaned. The RF are also wise enough and have had enough experiences to know that they cannot stamp a potential marriage as a success or a failure.

ETA: When it comes down to the time where Harry wishes to marry, it will not be up to the entire royal family as a consensus whether he marries the bride of his choice or not. They don't get to tell Harry "no" because she parts her hair on the wrong side to them or things like that.

While he does need the stamp of approval from the Queen, its her stamp of approval as Harry's monarch and pertains to his bride's acceptability within the monarchy and British interests. Most likely a (theoretical) daughter of Bashar al-Assad of the Syrian regime would raise a few eyebrows of the Queen and her Privy Counsel.

Meghan has said several times that she regards Toronto as 'home'. She has, after all spent quite a lot of time there in the past six years.

Perhaps, but she probably wouldn't stay once the show concludes, even if she doesn't marry Harry.
She'd want to find more work, which means L.A. or NYC.

Sounds like a great match to me. "When this partnership works well, each partner will bring out the best in each other." Leo can show Virgo a joyful way of life, while Virgo can bring a calming influence and a no-nonsense love and perspective. Apparently Virgo flourishes upon feeling needed while both Leo and Virgo are straightforward emotionally ... Leo exuberance & joy met by Virgo's discriminating depth & sincerity.

HA...my husband and I are a Leo/Libra mix.

Do they want the same things? I Don't know. If she's an actress, I presume she likes to act and she wont be able to do that. If she like America or Canada, she will have to leave there and live in the UK.
And I don't believe the RF would sanction a long standing "mistress" relationship.. and Harry would be deterred from undertaking it. He has money true but if he wants to go on being a working Prince.. if he wants to be a royal in good standing with his family, he will either marry Meghan or just let the relationship end in due course...

Because such a casual relationship is not what either of them have said they want...that's why not.

Although our natal charts are totally different, hubby and I share the same sun sign of Capricorn down to the same date. So much factors into individual natal charts that is pretty generic to just go by one's sun sign and compatibility.

If Harry and Meghan marry I would love to see Golden Poppies mixed into her bouquet or somewhere in the floral arrangements. They can range in color from a deep gold to bright orange, but I'm sure a talented florist can make it work.

Now on a lighter note if Harry designs an engagement ring featuring a grizzly bear with gemstone eyes he would replace Prince Joachim as the designer of the royal world's ugliest engagement ring! https://www.google.com/search?q=bear...B4IM:(Actually I have full confidence in Harry to chose something lovely for Meghan if it comes to an engagement.)

Meghan is an actress, being somewhat active on social media is pretty much a required way to promote for at least tv actors. If Meghan and Harry were just a fun fling, no way would she have quieted down on social media. She used to be quite active on twitter and Instagram. Now she posts nothing, never. She closed down the Tig, which most likely was quite lucrative. She ended her contract with Reitman. We can look for reasons for this everywhere, but it all happened after she and Harry had been dating a few months.

Added to this all the other drama, Meghan's estranged family, the harassment, racism, press hunting down anyone to spill info on Meghan, offering a lot of money for any info. The press trying to shame her by posting any past movie scenes she's done.

Plus the flying and making effort to see each other.

No one would go through all that for a little fun fling. This relationship Imo is very serious, just looking at all the stuff thrown at meghan and Harry, and them still being together, and making more effort to spend quality time together.

Very good analysis there. It does seem like these two people aren't running away from something but working at running towards something in the future. Step by step. Inch by inch.

I'm not up on all the signs, just a little knowledge about it.

It is interesting though, one of our children is a Leo and a couple of our best friends are Leo's as well.

Some of those are quite hideous!

I hope, when it comes down to it that Harry uses a family ring...something from Diana's personal collection or the BRF collection.

I do love the idea of poppies incorporated into a flower arrangement though.

Poppies would be wonderful I think should Meghan choose them.

As Kate had Sweet Williams in her bouquet when she married her William, poppies in Meghan's bouquet could symbolize her Harry's deep commitment to standing up for veterans.

She could use white poppies which is a flower used as a symbol of pacifism, worn as an alternative to, or complement to, the red remembrance poppy for Remembrance Day or Anzac Day.

When we think about it, there's so many different ways Harry and Meghan could use symbolism should they marry but I do think its best to actually wait for an engagement announcement before we start going gung ho on wedding details.

I have more fun speculating here than reading the re-hash on gossip sites. At least here it's opinion and there is more thought involved.

Going back, American brides would at times have roses in their bouquet. Also, the national flower of the U.S. is the rose. A rose could be in Meghan's coat of arms.

Since Meghan would be a second time bride (if it happens), is white, cream and ivory out of the question as well as a veil?

Hmmm I'm not sure she would wear white however there are many shades of off-white she would look good in....cream, blush etc etc. I've seen some gorgeous dresses that are not the traditional wedding colors. However I wouldn't expect anything to outside the box at a BRF wedding.

No- that's not really a real tradition. There's no obstacle to prevent her from wearing white or a veil.

Rumors are that Harry and Meghan want a house in Norfolk, not far from the Cambridges.

Two potential choices are:

Prince Harry house hunting in Norfolk for loveliest for him and Meghan | Daily Star


I prefer Twyford Hall, it is more attractive.

Most likely if Harry really wanted to do as Will and Kate did, I'm sure that either the Queen or Charles (depending on who is monarch at the time) will do for Harry as they did with William with Anmer Hall. Something on the Sandringham estate if Harry and Meghan want Norfolk.

I don't see Harry just going out and purchasing a place. Its not something that the British royal family is known to do.

Could it be leaked as part of stoking anticipation for a romantic royal wedding. I agree that the Queen normally gifts close married relatives with properties in the country. But what other estates are available that are owned by the crown? If not owned, do you mean the Queen would purchase for Prince Harry @Osipi?

Hopefully, Harry and Meghan are proceeding with caution and pacing themselves. They should probably be counseled by a minister in the church before arriving at a final marriage decision. It could be that if they aren't engaged by August, as speculated, we won't hear of an official announcement until early next year. However, I don't think they would still be together at this point if they did not already have a deep understanding. It probably came together for them on their Norwegian vacation coupled with time they spent together in January and February culminating in Valentine's Day. Meghan shuttered her Tig site sometime around end of March 2016, right?

Overall, your earlier analogy is so lovely and poetic. I can see why your avatar picture is of Walt Whitman. (ETA: Correction - Ralph Waldo Emerson!)

Still, as I've mentioned previously, I read a non-tabloid article that mentioned HM QE-II will not tolerate any further divorces in her family. She told her older grandchildren to be absolutely certain they are comfortable and compatible with any serious prospective marriage partner. That's exactly what Harry and Meghan are doing … spending a lot of time together in order to be certain of the strength and full commitment of their relationship. Prince Harry also has recent very instructive family history to guide him, as does his brother Prince William. I doubt Meghan and Harry would still be together if they weren't already deeply committed, especially under the circumstances of the intense scrutiny (and especially with Meghan making such obvious definitive career-shuttering decisions re Reitmans and her lifestyle blog).

Meghan and Harry are older and have more knowledge and experience of who they are as people and what they want out of life and out of their relationship. That bodes well for them.

What a delightful and bold mix. Leo and Libra sun signs are very compatible. As @Osipi mentioned earlier, it's true that a full natal chart shows much more about relationship compatibiity, than just sun signs.

Apparently the sun signs (Leo-Virgo) and the stars are dynamic and compatible for Meghan and Harry.
