There are many actresses and actors who have anxiety disorders and shyness and who can perform on stage but not socialize very well.
As for Meghan's career, she's not Scarlett Johanssen; it's not like she has offers banging on her door.

I dunno...there are Jewish kids who have gone to Catholic schools because it is considered to be a better education and more controlled/better environment etc.

She married on a beach the first time...so if Jewish, not Orthodox I wouldn't think.

IIRC in Judaism that is tracked thru the maternal line, if your mom is Jewish you are considered Jewish.

Meghan's half sister was commenting on twitter about the tabloid stories claiming that her dad and Meghan are Jewish. She said the stories are rubbish and that no one in their family is Jewish, they are Episcopalian.
She also said that one of her uncles is a Greek Orthodox Bishop but since they are half sisters I don't know if that is Meghan's uncle as well.

No, Meghan doesn't strike me as particularly religious.

In fact, I think the main thing that will be held against her is the fact that she has been divorced. If not for that, I think everyone would readily embrace he as part of the RF.

Her Irish roots have been discussed a number of times on the board, including by myself. Her father ethnically is Irish and Pennsylvania Dutch (German). Technically does not rule out being Jewish, as Judaism is both a religion and ethnicity. I am a German-Irish-English-Quaker Catholic but could convert to Judaism tomorrow if I chose. But it does seem the Jewish rumors are tied simply to her ex. Either way she doesn't seem very religious.

Some more information and good links here on her family roots

Thanks for the link, I knew her father was Dutch/Irish but I had no idea it was actually PA Dutch! I'm PA Dutch on my fathers side. My grandpa was a Mennonite pastor and grew up in the Amish faith until he was about 14, so maybe Meghan and I share some distant relatives.

ETA: Just to clarify, I'm Mennonite/Amish, not Meghan. The PA Dutch include a bunch of different Christian denominations, I just think it's cool our ancestors come from the same community.
Wouldn't want to accidentally start another round of tabloid stories: "Meghan Markle is Amish, can the Amish marry in Westminster Abbey?" Lolol

I'd say she has that one sorted by now!

You know it has to be somewhat surreal at least at first to sit and think ...I'm dating a guy who's mother was hugely famous and quite glamorous ...if we marry my child is going to be part of a institution that has been around for hundreds and hundreds of years....my father in law will be King in a few years....and then my brother in law.

Quite a bit for anyone to process let alone someone who is raised in a different type of culture.

It's an extraordinary thought indeed. You have to really love a person to even think about taking on such a thing.

I agree. I've heard that it's been said that many girls have been put off by the fact that Harry has such a high position in the RF, but his relationship with Meghan does seem serious to me. I don't know, I just have the feeling that this one will last... we'll see.

I personally wouldn't feel comfortable marrying someone in such a high position, as charming and handsome as Harry is. I would prefer to marry into a more 'comfortable' position like Lord Snowdon; that has all the perks of being royal but less of the fame, and unfortunately, criticism that comes with it. I doubt even that will happen, as much as I dream of it, though

Its destiny! Our paths are already carved for us. We're just living and following. Even if this relationship don't do go the distance, Harry and Meghan were meant to cross paths.

It takes real love to be willing to take on such a life. I hope this couple really go the distance and be happy. I hope that's where the path takes them.

Yes, it would be very hard for a 'regular' person who is used to being able to come and go as they please, wearing whatever they please ..moving into a life where they will face a lot of scrutiny anytime they are in a public setting....everything about them remarked on.

Princess Anne used to get quite annoyed when the media followed her riding career ..she felt like that was a private part of her life that had nothing to do with the royal duty part....of course the media constantly waiting for her to fall off or whatever.

I really think every position and situation in life has its advantages and disadventages.... in a Royal family there are of one sort, with average people it's another sort.....Nobody has a perfect life....

For me too. I have nothing against Meghan, and I wish both her, Harry and her relationship all the best in the future. But I have to admit that I find it a bit odd that some of the posters here are so full of praise for a woman that almost nobody knew anything about until the end of last year, and who has just dated Harry for a year.

Agrees! But if her thought is: I'm dating a guy whose mother was hugely famous and quite glamorous, then she must be a bit slow.

Harry is first and foremost (as I have said several times) grandchild of Elizabeth II, Queen of 16 countries, figurehead of 2 billion people, the most popular/iconic and famous head of state (many would say person) in the world.

Diana was just famous because she was married to Charles - The same goes for Philip, Camilla and Kate who are just famous for being married to some very special people.

I agree that Diana became famous when she married Charles, but, after that , she actually outshone him. It suffices to say that Diana was still the most photographed woman in the world even after she was no longer married to Charles.

Yes, but would she have continued to be, as time went on?
I heard it said that Diana was spiraling down- after the divorce. If she hadn't died young, I think she'd have ended up like her mother- a sad and lonely figure.

Meghan Markle struggles with British knowledge in fun quiz ? see the video!
Rehashing old interviews again. This is from 10 months ago, just when she began to date Harry.

I'm sorry if my gushing about Meghan annoys others. I have loosely followed her career for a while now, I've been a suit watcher from the start or the show. I just think she's wonderful, charming, and would seem like a great partner for Harry. I personally like the more positive tone of this forum, I stopped reading anywhere else, because of the 'she's an evil, manipulative hag' posts.

This is not the thread to discuss that, but the popular reaction to her demise, the reaction of the British PM , and the Queen being literally forced to do what she did on the days following Diana's accident make it abundantly obvious that she was far from "spiraling down" and, in fact, was somewhat of a larger than life figure at the time.
