Meghan is usually third or fourth billed in the opening credits so that makes her a supporting character and she has never been this much in the forefront in a group shot. And, her character Rachel is now a full fledged lawyer so she may be getting more meatier story lines besides being Mike's (Patrick Adams) fiancee' who reacts to his situations.
Everything is not about Harry folks.

Anyone can get that treatment, for a fee:

Seems Meghan has decided it's now worth the cost.

When I heard about the ATX panel reading I must admit I had my fingers & toes crossed for Meghan that no one would take the liberty to ask her about her personal life. That would have been extremely tacky if it happened when she was being professional & in front of her colleagues. Luckily no one did, largely because the moderator was the only one allowed to ask questions.

Unfortunately the daily fail had sent a reporter to stalk her all weekend & apparently she was asked about her personal life at some point. There is no evidence to say when the questioning supposedly took place & typical DM article isn't very clear on it. However this gave the fail the headline they'd been looking for.

I found this article that talks about this incident. I agree with its content that it is very disrespectful that people would think it is ok to ask a woman personal questions in a professional environment. I hope this doesn't happen at future events she has to do for the show. Otherwise it will only result in MM not reaching out to fans of the show & her unable to do promotions.

Well, it's not at all unlikely for actors to be asked personal questions though. Not that I disagree that she's only being asked because of who she is dating, but a big marketing value for production companies is the amount of interest an actor is able to gather and personal life plays a big part.

The point of the article is to say women especially have to deal with intrusions into their personal life more so than men. Even in the acting world actresses always get asked these kind of questions more so than their male counterparts.

Meghan clearly doesn't want to talk about her personal life. And if an agreement is made beforehand that no personal questions should be asked in these settings then the interviewer/journalist should respect that. Unfortunately many of these journalists are very shady & will find a way to throw in the question just to get a soundbite!

She appears to be savvy enough to know the media isn't going to follow the rules if they can get away with it....so far she's handling them quite well.

When, for some reason, you're thrust into the limelight because of a personal relationship, it can be all intrusive, annoying and totally throw a person off balance.

Harry has met the perfect person to handle this kind of a high profile relationship with calm professionalism. Meghan knows how to handle this intense limelight well and has taken measures to assure that what is private remains private but also has the smarts to continue on doing her very public, professional role as she has always done.

She comes across as a very level headed, secure in her own skin kind of a person that has a more in depth understanding of the life that surrounds Harry than most people would.

I must admit the thohgh only thing I cared about looking at the photos was....

Who is the cute black puppy in one photo? Total animal lover.

But the media is pathetically desperate that they would stalk Instagram to put that together. At least they aren't trying to poke in Windows or hire spies to get photos inside. Starting to see why her personal posts have ended.

One can only hope she can take the sheer repetition of the totally inappropriate questions she's asked in totally inappropriate places.

So anyone can be a VIP! That is a good thing for her as reporters access at airports will be severely curtailed.

Lol, that style only works if you're single with no kids. I like a lady with a clean look to her house though. Bravo Meghan!!

Those kind of houses just look staged and not lived in, IMO. I mean it's great if you like all the white...but too perfect.

Yeah, it's just her there, so she can keep it in that kind of condition. Of course, anyone of her status, who photographs their home, will clean it up before hand. No one is going to post an untidy house before the media.

I think she does what any normal person would do, clean up before posting on social media, especially if you are famous. Since she was involved in building a lifestyle brand, I'm not surprised by the staging.

A lived in house doesn't mean it's messy.

I was actually struck by how many pictures looked like a house someone really lives in. In a good way. Most shots of beds or sofas have the kind of lightly rumpled telltale signs that a person was just sitting there. In at least one of the dog photos she's laid a blanket down on the furniture to protect it from shedding fur and dirty paws. The prints and framed posters she's hung on the walls are attractive and also very...normal. I decorate my house with things like that, too.

A lot of times if a person knows the photographs of their living spaces are going to be made public, they'll take precautions to make the room look more antiseptic and impersonal. This way the focus remains on the decor of the space and eliminates what could be a personal glimpse into someone's life.

Although very nice looking, I can imagine the horror thoughts that would run through the mind if perchance there were to be a little one wandering around with a full glass of grape juice or a klutzy friend with a glass of red wine.

Right now Meghan is living on her own and with the busy lifestyle she has, I don't picture her as being one to sit home a lot.
