my thoughts exactly. she was mostly unknown some days ago, and now she is the headline in every digital outlet - no reason for her to speak up, and every reason to keep the mystery going by telling interviewers 'that (in love) she is the happiest person on earth'.

The best recipe for inner erosion of the institution of the monarchy. Unwed moms, the fitness dude, an underwear model, a divorced TV-anchor and now a Z-list celebbie, does not matter: the doors of Europe's royal palaces sway wide open. No any conditions required to become a royal.

For a dishwasher at Kentucky Fried Chicken they apply more conditions. This oldfashioned dude here hopes that Prince Henry indeed will engage with a nice lady with a respected and dignified background.
i do not personally think she will, but agree with you that royalty seems to be more laxe these days than in the past

my thoughts exactly. i think kate is a wonderful addition to the family - not noble or royal but perfectly knowledgeable about what it entails. she 'bridges' both sides of the equation nicely to suit both the purists and the 'modern' ones who think royalty needs to be modernized. she also has not put a foot wrong since marrying.

i liked cressida (and chelsy) a lot and thought they had a similar background to kate which would make them nice additions to the family. so i miss those days too! but i think that harry will find someone along those lines.

When Don Felipe dated Doña Isabel, the daughter of Don Vicente Sartorius y Cabeza de Vaca, 4th Marquis de Mariño, apparently this met resistance at the Spanish Court: a Prince of Asturias could do better than a daughter of a divorced couple, despite their aristocracy. In hindsight King Juan Carlos will have regretted this lukewarm reception of his son's liaison.

We can say the same when Prince Harry indeed will marry the actress Meghan Markle. Then, by hindsight, Cressida, daughter of Lady Mary-Gaye Curzon and granddaughter of the Earl of Howe seems more befitting a Prince of the blood royal.

Meghan would be an adjustment in some ways, but she at least has drive and poise. Cressida is so aimless (she does sort of wave in the direction of modelling and acting when it suits her, but rarely actually does much of anything but party), she would have been a total disaster as a working royal.

I don't understand how the people are believing there is a romance between Harry and the american actress , there are not even pics of them together
We are in a funny world where tabloids are enough good to make of some IG of an actress who was unknown two weeks ago, a romance between a single handsome prince and a actess who is not a good material.
For me, no pics, no dating

She does loads of charity work, has earned her own money for years and thus is capable of supporting herself, holds a degree and has worked with the UN. She actually ticks more boxes than Kate ever did.

Looks like Harry is doing quite well for himself here.

If Harry thinks Meghan is suitable, then Meghan is suitable. His is the only opinion that should matter.

Agreed - more so when our speculation ventures toward marriage and having babies, the relative likelihood of IVF, etc.

The cart is miles in front of the horse on this one.

The Queen's opinion matters because he needs her permission to marry

As initially intrigued as I am by the idea of this woman ever being in a royal role (as opposed to Chelsy and Cressida, who always seemed like strange choices for Harry in their temperments and lifestyles), it's all just "what if" to me at this point. Fun to speculate, but there's really nothing yet to indicate the dating rumors are anything more than rumors.

No only the dating rumour is not even confirmed, but even if they were, it doesn't mean she'll make it to the altar.

If it's possible to become serious then it is or will be. Nothing but a tweet sighting in toronto, interviews and front cover pages, makes it official to many. tabloid speculation or manipulation is all the confirmation that's needed for the majority of fans. It's getting more credible by the day and no amount of spotted inaccuracies for each article won't let this die down.
Unfortunately, if she's posting cryptic messages and photos of "bananas spooning" (yuck!) it could also be a sign that the young lady is indiscreet and is enjoying her turn in the spotlight a little too much.

Unlike quite a few people online, I am not against her on account of her ethnicity and her career. On the contrary, the recent inclusion of divorcees, unwed mothers and soft porn reality TV actresses into the ranks of the "Gotha" renders any objections to Meghan Markle extremely hypocritical imo.

The "celebrification" of European royalty began eons before Markle posted her bananas...heck it began even before Sofia Hellfqvist and the son of the King of Sweden exited out of their Royal wedding ceremony to the tune of Janet Jackson's "What Have You Done For Me Lately".

With only a handful of exceptions, glorified celebs living in palaces and wearing mouth watering bling is how I see most of Europe's royalty and aristocrats now.

But if Meghan can't resist sly boasting and dropping hints on social media it could be a huge red flag for Harry to run, not walk from this relationship or at the very least not let himself get in to deep.

If she is serious about the relationship and truly cares about him she needs to shut the h-ll up and get off social media!

ICAM with marty91charmed...just because she is dating Harry does not mean she is going to be next Duchess of Sussex.

He is eligible and young and unattached. She is gorgeous and unattached(I think)...and dating is what happens sometimes.

Her behavior is one of the reasons I think there is nothing to this rumor. If she were really involved with Harry she would put her head down and ignore the hoopla....instead she's cashing in. She's gonna make hay while the sun shines.

I tend to agree. She would have gone to mats ages ago if this was truly serious. She sounds very bright so I can't believe she doesn't realize that the quickest way to kill her chances is to become indiscreet online or in person.

If she is simply enjoying herself during what must be a very exciting and fun romance then good for her.

Harry could do a lot worse...and so could she!

Her behavior...okay now I am confused.

Other than posting a picture of two bananas spooning, which could really mean anything....especially since we don't know what is going on. supposedly she had another boyfriend a couple of months ago....how is her behavior an indication that nothing is going on at all ...and how is she cashing in on anything.

The only thing she has going on now is the launch of her clothing line, which I imagine was already in the works before these rumours started.

eta; and saying you are the luckiest girl in the world can really mean anything. If I was a young actress who is actually WORKING, traveling the world and helping out in causes that I care about at the same time I was launching a clothing line..I would say that I was the luckiest girl in the world too....It's about being grateful for the people and opportunities that you have in your life. Not everyone is blessed.

Prince Harry and his US actress girlfriend Meghan Markle got together in July, after meeting through the fashion designer wife of one of his school friends, a source tells HELLO! magazine.

Misha Nonoo, who reportedly separated from old Etonian Alexander Gilkes recently, is a close friend of the Suits star and holidayed with her in Spain over the summer.

She was also in the UK, posting photographs from the Royal Enclosure at Ascot to her Instagram account in June

Well Zonk she must know by now that rumors about herself and a certain much sought after ginger prince have lit up the Internet and much of the press.

So why post a photo of two bananas in the position taken by lovers sleeping together, in addition to all the photos of Royal London(yes I've seen them!) unless she wants to send a not so secret message?

Sure I could be wrong, but I think she's walking dangerously close to indiscreet.

I agree that she has to know what is going on so it probably wasn't the best idea to post a picture of spooning bananas but she wouldn't be the first person to date a royal to speak to the press in the early stages of a relationship/friendship. I don't think that should automatically disqualify her nor send her to the Tower because of her 'behavior.'

In regards to pics of Royal London, well...that doesn't mean anything really. if you look at her instagram...she also has scenic/tourists pics of NYC, Ottawa, Spain and Italy.

Honestly, it's a wonder anyone would date Harry or anyone like him. I read that one of reasons that it didn't work with Cressida was the constant public criticisms of everything about her...her career, her parents, her clothes, etc.
