Well.... I think I can let go of the idea that Harry gets a dog for Christmas now.

I hope whatever gifts they do exchange remain private between the two of them. We don't have to know everything and anything.

The fact that she has rescued this adorable doggie and given him the name "Bogart"...same as my rescued tomcat...gives me a sort of built-in soft spot for the lady.

But Daily Fail is becoming a parody with their Meghan headlines:

MEGHAN DOES YOGA!
MEGHAN GLOWS AFTER A NIGHT WITH HARRY! **wink wink*
MEGHAN BUYS GROCERIES!
MEGHAN WALKS THE DOG!!
MEGHAN BUYS FLOWERS!!

We're going into the December/January quiet period.. I anticipate that the papers will run any Meghan story they can since general royal news will mostly dry up for a couple of months.

What I am intrigued by is that Meghan is back in Toronto, since filming has wrapped on Suits. It pretty much confirms that she lives there, rather than being there when the show is filming. But, generally, if you're an LA person, you'd usually need a reason to decide to live through Toronto winters if you have other options. Who knows, maybe it's just the dogs, but I find it interesting.

I agree - it appears that the silly season has started (although, with this particular tabloid, it seems that it's the silly season most of the time ).

If her first wedding was a civil wedding there would be no problem with her having a church wedding at all. The reason Charles and Camilla had to marry in a register office is because the C of E can't marry divorced people who have married in a church previously. They may give a blessing to them but they can't marry them. They take the view that Christian marriage is for life and don't recognise divorce, the same as the Catholic Church. For example, if Andrew and Sarah wanted to remarry they could do so civily to make it legal again but they wouldn't require a blessing as the C of E will still regard them fully as man and wife. Camilla and her first husband are in the same position in the eyes of the church and that's why she and Charles had to marry in the register office. If Mr Parker Bowle should die before Camilla she and Charles could then remarry in church as both would be classed as being widowed (and I think they would definitely do this) So the bottom line is that Meghan's first marriage will be considered irrelevant as long as it wasn't in a church just as Letizia of Spain's was.

This is such an interesting topic. If Harry chooses to marry Meghan I think his wedding will be grand but not in the scale of his brothers. I think perhaps Windsor Castle would be an appropriate and still beautiful location.

I think the type of wedding Harry chooses will reflect a lot of things. For instance if he marries in the next few years the economic climate will be taken into consideration. No one knows how Brexit will affect our economy. HM has a keen instinct on how to tread tricky times like recessions.

On a personal level Harry may prefer a quiet wedding. Or, he may want to give Meghan (or whoever he weds) the full on Pomp and circumstance. So it all depends on so many levels.

If Harry takes his time and there is a coronation before a wedding then that may be factored in as two state events in a short period may be too expensive.

My instinct though gears towards Windsor with a still impressive location whilst not affecting the city of London, as policing theses events must be huge operational wise.

I'm curious, why are you so determined that they should get engaged/married ASAP? I know there's the dreaded phrase that "neither are getting any younger" etc but as far as we know they haven't actually spent huge amounts of time together, lived on the same continent, seen if she can handle the royal circus that will last for the rest of her life if they get married or for that matter if she wants to effectively give up her acting career.

I have no objection to them getting married, (not that anyone is asking me!) but with so many potential deal breakers the very worst thing they could do would be to rush it IMHO.

I'm reasonably certain that the C of E does now recognise divorce and allows divorcees to be remarried in church - at the discretion of the local Vicar, cases of marrying the mistress may still be looked on with askance etc.

Because so many are against her for stupid reasons, the primaries being that she is half black and American to boot. Secondly, I am sick of reading that it's too soon etc. as if they had a say in what is soon enough. You may think it's too soon but chances are Harry would disagree and he would not care what you thought about this. He is going to what he wants and with his grandmother's blessing if she hasn't given it to him already.

I use "You" for generally speaking by the way...

Anyway, I also support this because I called this, I said that Harry would fall for an American woman and he has. So many doubted the possibility.

And finally, the prospect of seeing the first British/American Princess of color is exciting to me especially since so many are against her.

You don't know anymore than we do A.O. ...none of us know what Harry is or isn't thinking. It's all a guess at this point.

We can deduce by how protective he is of her and his actions but otherwise you're right it's all a guess.

Me, as a Torontonian, I love all the free publicity for our city; especially as none of the papers here give Ms Markle any notice!

Well, it looks like Harry is happy and he really loves her. I hope her divorce is not a hindrance to their future together. I mean with three of her Majesties children are divorced as is her daughter in law. From what we can see Meghan looks like a lovely lady and he racial background should not be an issue at all. As for it being to soon only the couple in question would have the answer to that. Look, when you find the right one, you find the right one. With the world such a mess at it is a love story is a bright spark. Who cares about richer or poorer, what colours we are. Love is love. I for one hope it works out for them. Like all couples in love, they deserve a happy ending. Let's pray that they get one.

Did someone actually get paid to write that article?!

As for keeping the reationship front and centre.. IG post of bananas cuddling vs a press release from KP saying Meghan is PH's girlfriend, telling the press to not harass her & flying to meet her right in front of the said press knowing it will be front page news soon. I'd say Prince Harry is shouting his adoration for Meghan from the rooftops.

I see a laughing Meghan and a smiling happy Harry (who apparently broke protocol and took a Canadian detour en route back to the UK following his Carribean suite of engagements), these two are having fun; until and if it becomes legal, only then can royal protocol (whatever that would entail) can get involved.

If I were those two I would keep it just so for as long as they can.

Well until they are thinking of extending that happy family of two!

Well it is good you get a laugh out of it, the world still turns, people have a right to their opinions. I'll be here picking out china patterns.

It's a great temporary diversion from the awfullness of 2016. You laugh at us carrying on....we all win.

There's a few historic 'American Princesses' (so to speak) who might be looked at for the reality of noble households/families.

I wish I knew who she was, so what she said would be relevant.

Quite a few, and Princess Diana's great grandmother was American.
