Such a pity that the Daily Fail doesn't meet the same expectations with it's content and writing as it does with the speedy uploads of fantastic quality photos!

Since I discovered that tendency I have never read the articles. The thing is, they employ the best photographers and publish the best prints so . . . I look for a DM link and then just surf the photos and, as always, they are terrific.

HM must have a lot of confidence in Meghan to appoint her to such a role. The Commonwealth is her baby and she is certainly setting all the pieces in place to ensure it continues to flourish.

If ever there was a stamp of approval from the Queen in regards to Meghan, this is it. As Marg has stated, the Commonwealth has been the Queen's baby that she's nurtured and cared for over her entire reign and she does want to ensure that it will grow and prosper into the future. Harry and Meghan are just the right couple to give the Commonwealth Trust the attention and service that they need.

It warms my heart too to see it announced publicly that Meghan's role will have a focus on women and girls. This has always been a strong desire of where Meghan wanted her focus to go before she met Harry and now she's able to bring it into play on the Commonwealth stage.

What a beautiful and poignant way to celebrate International Womens Day

It is a great honor for Meghan. It does show the queen's confidence in her and that HM doesn't take stock in what the tabloids, the talking heads on TV, the RRs and her paternal family have said and still saying about Meghan.

Very nice, and the fact that Harry is president highlights the fact that the Commonwealth is definitely going to be one of their primary areas of focus--not that we had any doubt about that.

Can't go wrong with a husband and wife working together as a team and each having their own individual areas of focus. Its a win/win situation.

Its also occurred to me that its going to be a lifetime role for both of them. The Queen's Commonwealth Trust (with the trust being the King's Commonwealth Trust in future years) in Harry and Meghan's care will probably go on through the reign of William V.

Its been mentioned several places in different conversations that as the years pass, Harry and Meghan's roles will diminish and they'll slip more and more into the "unnecessary for royal duties" category. I think their roles as far as the Commonwealth goes ensure that they'll always be major players as team members of the British Royal Family through the years.
