However Sophie Wessex was a successful PR representative, had experienced various jobs and had a full social life in London before meeting Prince Edward. Birgette van Deurs worked at the Danish Embassy in London when she met Prince Richard of Gloucester. I'm sure Birgette led a full life.

Sophie knew that her life would incorporate some Royal duties even if she did hope she could continue her PR business. Prince Richard was an architect, but as his parents aged he might well have taken up a few patronages even if his brother had lived. His wife too!

Love does funny things to people! Probably it was a wrench for Daniel to give up life coaching and his successful chain of gyms because of his marriage but he did it and joined the Royal round, because of Victoria. He hasn't gone off screaming into the sunset full of regrets about fulfilment.

By the way, just as a point of interest, Meghan and the Queen Mother share a birthday!

I'm not sure confirming the relationship was the best way to achieve those goals. It sounds like she and her family were dealing with some terrible stuff, but becoming the Official Girlfriend is just going to result in even more interest.

Yes indeed:

I am glad this statement has been issued and that the matter will no longer be subject to rumour and speculation. I only hope that Harry and Meghan can continue to develop their relationship as they wish.

I understand the statement but in the churning minds of sociopathic tabloid editors a warning can easily be perceived as a dare. They will harass Meghan even more just to prove a point.

Tabloids certainty aren't going to back off

I wish Harry and Meghan all the best in their relationship and that now have time to enjoy themselves without media attention.
I had a dream: Let's connect our thoughts together, than we have a mission, let's connect our feelings together, than we have a mood, let's connect our dreams together, than we have a vision and let's connect our mission, our mood and our vision together than we have a perfect life.

I agree this won't stop anything. But I'm going to try and not post on this topic again. I say try because I'm not sure I will be able to resist.

Oh no... I must say I hoped Harry would have some sense. And no, I don't care what nationality, ethnicity etc. Harry's girlfriend is, I just feel terribly disappointed that most younger royals seem to go after people with narcissistic tendencies. I guess no-one else is interested in the title anymore.

Prince Harry: Relationship Suggestions and Musings 2016

I don't think this will do much. Social media has no rules basically. Where there was still some doubt about the relationship but now with KP confirming it. That's all gone. So she will become a target for 3 countries media-US, Canada and U.K. The paparazzi will now be trying to get that first picture of them together for big money. The TMZs of the world don't care what KP says. KP can't do anything thing about them.

This statement kind of reminds me of the statement about the paparazzi pictures of George & Charlotte last summer. However those two are small kids who had no choice to be born who they are. Meghan is a grown adult who chose to date a Prince.

Diana onwards to Kate, they all get the press prying treatment. I don't think the press will just stop because Harry asked them too.

Ideally the situation would be much better if they could have kept unwraps longer. I wonder who Camilla Tominey's source for the initial story was.

There will be more and more of this, for as long as the relationship endures.

I wish the couple well. I think this statement was issued because the tabloid attention and speculation in the media was just getting out of hand with no sign of it stopping. I hope the two of them get some peace and quiet and time to themselves in the future, but I doubt it. The next thing the tabs will be baying for will be an engagement, and then Camilla T and co. will be booking the Abbey!

mmm... interesting press release.

am i the only one who read the press release in its entirety and found it a most strange statement? the informal tone it is written in, the specificities, the 'let's break the news out - yes, it is his GIRLFRIEND, meghan'. it is just not the done thing. i even doubt kensington ever confirmed that harry was going out with any of his previous girlfriends, cressida and chelsy, and they went out for a long time. what made them release this makes me extremely curious. it is a strange move.

anyway, if by releasing this they thought they would decrease media pressure on her and her circle, they've done the exact opposite. in doing so they confirmed their relationship and as a result, more and more will come. this is only just the start.

it is strange they would release this - as if they didn't know how diana and kate were harrased by the paps. are they seriously expecting a press release to stop all that behaviour? i thought they (kensington palace, harry, meghan or whoever had the idea to do this) would know better.

I don't think so. Meghan is a different ball game- she's a person of mixed heritage and much of the nasty comments were about her race. She's also divorced! *trolls clutch their pearls*.

Heaven forbid.. If they have been 'seeing one another' for a few Months [and 'Long distance'] how can they POSSIBLY have laid the groundwork for the MASSIVE change marriage would bring to both their lives ..
