Dunno about that. We know Harry was aggressively pursuing her during that time. Meghan told Larry King that there were several interested parties, correct? Harry could have been around and it was noted that he was keen towards her. Could have been so. Speculation, of course. JMO.

I think DM would've blasted that little tidbit the loudest, if they were tipped off about Meghan being Harry's new love interest. She is Serena Williams' friend, a celeb in her own right, DM published her picture because of that.

Will Harry wear his wedding ring if/when he marries Meghan?

I know that Charles and William don't wear theirs and I think that is so disrespectful to their marriages and their wives.


Anyway, I am hoping Harry doesn't follow suit. Thoughts?

Why is it disrespectful to their marriages and wives? Pretty common for people to choose to forgo wearing rings

Charles wears his on his pinkie under his signet ring. William has never worn any rings.

I know women who don't wear any rings including their wedding ring. Personal preference.

Men wearing a wedding ring used to be regarded as 'lower-class' and flashy. It's still quite common for men of a certain social standing to not wear a ring.

For instance, former Prime Minister Cameron doesn't wear one.

Harry's choice.

She was introduced to Meg by the Yorkies (York princesses) and it's telling that the princesses would think that Meg would be good for Harry.

The Yorks (Eugenie) also introduced Cressida Bonas

Charles's wedding ring is worn with his signet ring. He wore his wedding from his marriage to Diana until he became officially engaged to Camilla.

William don't wear any jewels on than a watch. He used to wear a bracelet, but he no longer do that.

Perhaps Harry will wear his someday.

William doesn't have a wedding ring. So it's not like he has one and doesn't wear it. Philip doesn't wear a ring. Kate's dad doesn't wear a ring. Those two older gentlemen's marriages are still going strong.

That's right! William never received a ring to wear in the first place. If he had one he would wear it. It was announced that it was a personal choice for him to not have a ring. William would never disrespect his wife by having a ring and not wearing it.

Perhaps Harry will make a different choice to have in a and wear it. We'll never know until that day comes anyway.

We don't know who introduced Harry to Meghan for the first time for the plain and simple reason that we don't know where and when they first met. I've read Toronto, Canada in May, in which case neither of the Yorkies were there and it was more likely to have been one of Meghan's friends. Or it could have been England and that June when Meghan was on a visit.

As far as I know neither Beatrice nor Eugenie know Meghan, though they certainly had socialised with Cressida Bonas and members of her family, and Eugenie introduced Harry to Cress at a music festival in May. Whether they dated seriously before he went to Afghanistan that year is debatable though.

I don't think it is disrespectful necessarily to not wear your wedding ring even if you have one. Some people's jobs have safety issues wearing rings, other people develop allergies to metal and some who never wore a ring before find they don't like wearing a ring. None of that means you are disrespecting your spouse,

Right, it's really interesting to me that we still don't know when they met/started dating. The only confirmed information is that they'd been dating for a "few months" by November via the statement.

We have no idea when they connected. They could have met in May when he was in Toronto for Invictus. Doesn't mean they started dating back then. Meghan is said to be friends with Sophie Trudeau (she definitely is with Jessica Mulroney who styles Sophie) and may have met via her.

She could have met through friends when she was in London for Wimbledon in the summer. Possibly both. Perhaps they met in Toronto and reconnected when she was in London. From her talk with Piers, we know she wasn't serious with anyone yet. Doesn't mean they weren't talking just not dating as in calling each other boyfriend girlfriend.

It's highly unlikely the Yorks had anything to do with it. We have no reason to believe Meghan met either until recently.

As for ring, nothing insulting. Many men who have them don't wear. My dad lost his golfing early in marriage and never bothered to replace. Married 45 years. Then again my mother didn't wear hers for twenty years as she lost the centre diamond in her engagement. Instead of replacing, she just wore her family ring. My dad replaced the diamond with a better one for her sixtieth but she got so used to not wearing it, only wears special occasions.

Well... if Harry doesn't want to wear a ring, I have another solution. My son and his wife did something totally unique and that was having a barcode (as you see on products in a grocery store for scanning) tattooed on their left wrists with the numerals being their wedding date.

It's only disrespectful to not wear a ring if you are doing something against your vows or you promised to wear one and don't.

My husband doesn't wear one due to his job ...married almost 30 years now. As long as the couple are okay with it...doesn't matter to anyone else.

Seems like 'we' had already figured out where they met? Some charity event or something Harry was at...?

If we believe tabloids, they did indeed meet in May in Toronto. And were introduced by her good friend Mark
