Meghan Markle & Prince Harry ‘have just been chilling at home’ in London

meg1

I really do enjoy E! News’ periodic updates about all things Meghan Markle. I guess we’re not supposed to question how E! keeps getting all of these amazing scoops, or maybe we’re supposed to believe that Meghan and her team would never, ever leak personal details to the press. Rii-ight. Don’t get me wrong, every royal girlfriend does this, as they should. Media management is an actual skill, and it’s one of the most important skills for any royal girlfriend to have if she ever wants to become a royal bride. So what’s the latest? We already discussed E!’s exhaustive story about how Meghan and Harry are totally fine and he went to Toronto to visit her two weekends ago and THEY ARE FINE. So, this is the update: They Are Fine, Part Deux: We’re Just Ordinary Homebodies Edition.

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have recently been chilling at his home—away from the paparazzi. Kensington Palace had confirmed their relationship in November and they have met in various places around the world since then, including the prince’s native London and Toronto, where she films Suits.

Meghan flew from the Canadian city to the British capital earlier this week to meet up with Harry again. A source told E! News the two have been “total homebodies” since she got to Kensington Palace.

“They’ve just been chilling at home,” the source said. “There’s always someone watching or trying to get pics when they go out that they’re pretty happy just staying in and doing nothing. They like to cook, watch movies and that kind of thing.”

Meghan has visited Harry at Kensington Palace before. The source said that the last time she was there, the two watched Disney’s Moana together.

Harry and brother Prince William will take part in a special service to rededicate the grave of their mother Princess Diana on Saturday, on what would have marked her 56th birthday. The source told E! News Meghan does not plan on attending the event but will offer “moral support.”

[From E! News]

I did wonder if Meghan was going to be around through the weekend, given that Harry would be away for hours on Saturday, on what would have been his mother’s 56th birthday. Harry will be attending the re-dedication of his mother’s grave site at Althorp. He will be joined by William, Kate and the Cambridge children. Presumably Harry will travel back to London Saturday evening and Meghan will be there to listen to him or just be *there*.

As for “chilling at home” – they haven’t spent that much time together in the past month, so I assume they’re still in the “banging each other constantly” phase. They probably find it difficult to come up for air.

    Reports this am she is doing a reality show, say what?! Can’t see that being a positive move. Anyone else hear this?

    • All About Eve says:

      Meghan is not doing a reality show. There was an article written in the Sun that channel 4 wanted to do an unauthorized documentary on her life. Nothing has been confirmed by channel 4 so who knows how true the story is.

      The media are getting desperate for things to write because the couple are giving them very little.

      • Connell says:

        I think you are right about the media getting desperate. However, there were documentaries done about W&K after their engagement was announced. If there is an “unauthorized” documentary about Meghan, I assume she will have some input. After all, the people interviewed are her family and friends. I don’t know how it could be done without her help.

      • Nessa nessa says:

        @ Conner She doesn’t give input..it’s implied she isn’t involved & that’s why she might not like it. Her white family is crazy & trash.

      • Bonobochick says:

        @connell, “unauthorized” implies without her consent. “authorized” would mean she would have a hand in it.

      • All About Eve says:

        @connell The whole point of an unauthorized documentary is that the subject has not given permission for the programme to be made & is refusing to give any input.

        Meghan doesn’t need to cooperate. All the producers need to do is rehash the same nonsense that is already out there & speak to estranged family members & previous acquaintances in her life who are willing to talk for cash.

        Meghan & Harry aren’t even engaged & have only been dating for a year. I seriously doubt this rumored documentary is meant to give a useful insight into her life but more a desperate attempt by tv show makers to cash in.

      • Flufff says:

        My partner had some involvement in a C4 series about celebs and I believe this Meghan one is likely part of the same series. if so, it is definitely not approved and done without any permission or involvement from the person.

    • RoyalSparkle says:

      Don’t think she is.

      Her second photo is new and very beautiful chic with proper length as well!

  2. hmmm says:

    “They’ve just been chilling at home”

    Yep, they are screwing like rabbits, watching Netflix and ordering take out. Profound.

    • GiBee says:

      Ordering take out! Why I never! You’ll notice that all the Meghan-planted stories lean heavily into how she’s cooking, they’re cooking, she’s teaching him how to cook “clean healthy food”, they’re learning how to cook together, etc. Seems like someone’s planning her own little Pippa Tips-esque book deal… Some sort of Goopy cookbook perhaps?

      • All About Eve says:

        This story just seems like another copy & paste job taken from previous articles. It wouldn’t be hard for any journalist to make up BS stories simply by looking at her Instagram & seeing her hobbies & interests.

      • Erica says:

        I believe she does cook on YouTube there is Today show segment she did before she met harry where she cooks with matt laeur and it looked really good.She has been promoting healthy eating for a long time on her blog The Tig before she shut it down.It was actually a nice site with some good recipes.

      • Maria says:

        That’s after he went grocery shopping. He likes to do his own shopping, remember.

      • Nessa nessa says:

        That’s not a plant & purely common sense. She cooks….it’s not a secret. Long before she met Harry that’s all she talked about in interviews & the Tig. Hell she went on the TODAY show with Matt Lauer just to cook some shrimp. So anyone wanting to make up a story won’t have to try hard….

    • SoulSPA says:

      Wondering what address they’d give when ordering a take out, lol!! They’d actually choose what they want to eat and have someone to collect it for them. Such is life. LOL!

    • Sarah says:

      They sure go “chill” a lot, don’t they? He must be unwinding from that terribly stressful Malawi vacation.
      I’m always amazed when healthy grown men don’t work. #moochers

  3. Nicole says:

    I find these stories so cringe. Lol but I read you loud and clear. They are fine and they are at home. Thanks for the update

    • Megan says:

      Waity Part 2

      • Bonobochick says:

        Almost a year = / = 10 years

      • CynicalAnn says:

        They’ve been together a year. That’s hardly Waity.

      • notasugarhere says:

        If she moved to London, lived in an apartment paid for by her parents, and didn’t work for 10 years while waiting for a prince to marry her? Then you’d have something to go on, Megan. As it stands? She’s working her job, doing PR work for that job, and visiting her boyfriend when her work schedule allows.

      • PettyRiperton says:

        Working, has her own life and friends and isn’t under her mother’s thumb far from waity Katie sorry try again.

      • Megan says:

        I meant Waity tactics.

      • notasugarhere says:

        Nope, Megan, the comparison doesn’t fly. Kate Middleton and her family waged a full on Bag The Prince at Any Cost campaign for a decade. I don’t see Meghan Markle standing by and letting Harry dump-and-cheat on her for a decade while she sits on the sidelines waiting for him to give up and marry her.

      • themummy says:

        Waity tactics? Really? They’ve only been dating 10 months. She lives on another continent, has a career of her own and money of her own, is relatively private, and sees him once a month or so on average (and is very private about it). I don’t see any Waity tactics here at all. I don’t honestly see how she could possible be any less Waity-like than she is.

      • RoyalSparkle says:

        -1000
        NO comparison to waity middleton- or any one of the Wisteria sisters for that matter!

  4. yanni says:

    All I can think of is how much all these flights must be costing…!

    • SoulSPA says:

      Plus the flights for his protection officers. The security takes the big bulk. Multiple members of the royal protection team to travel with him, working in different shifts, arrangements for their accommodation and meals, communication with London using expensive top-of-the-art safe communication equipment. I am quite positive that security for personal travel is paid from public purse. That I’d find extremely outrageous. But we’ll never know these details. They are kept confidential as revealing them would pose “significant security risks”. On the same note, most likely the RF do personal travel abroad a lot more than we get to know. It costs too much for the public to know.

    • Melly says:

      I would assume that she is paying for her own airfare. There is no reason to use royal funds to fly a gf across the Atlantic

      • SoulSPA says:

        I get your point. Just to clarify that I was referring to Harry’s travel to Canada.

  5. Anne says:

    Ooo, how sweet. Meggie and Harry-The Normal Prince, they are just like us, aren’t they?

    • seesittellsit says:

      Well, it’s not as if Harry is due at the office by eight every morning, is it?

    • RoyalSparkle says:

      They seem to be when together!

      But no – since DM or other rag stated Prince Harry was in Malawi on safari trip >?

  6. All About Eve says:

    E! News is not a reliable source. They contradicted themselves several times in the article by saying Harry went to visit Meghan in Toronto & then they quoted another source who said he did not go to Toronto.
    Also prior to Pippa’s wedding they wrote several articles on how Meghan had gone to several dress fittings & would be attending the wedding ceremony wearing a hat. All of which turned out to be garbage.

    This latest article is written very poorly & sounds like something dreamt up at a writer’s desk.

    • Sami says:

      Yeah I remember the Pippa wedding articles. And then when none of it panned out, people decided that the more “logical” theory is that Meghan had suddenly been disinvited to the Church rather than that E was wrong.

      Someone in her camp is feeding them information and they take that to mean tacit approval but that person isnt in the loop so everything they bring is probably third hand info. Basically theres a Kellyanne Conway in Meghans camp.

      • Nessa nessa says:

        Or…wait for it…they’re just making stuff up for clicks…like everybody else.

      • notasugarhere says:

        That’s what seems more likely, nessa nessa. They’re making stuff up, just as any of us could do at this point. It isn’t come from either H or M – it is just being made up by people in cubicles at media companies who are desperate for clicks.

  7. Louise says:

    Better than getting a real job eh, Harry? Life is good when you dont have to count vacation days.

    • SoulSPA says:

      And when you do not have an insane boss or performance appraisals or bullies in the office or dealing with office politics, or going home and feel like crying with frustration. Harry is extremely fortunate in this respect.

      • Nessa nessa says:

        No one is feeding E! shit…they are just making up stories for clicks. That’s it….

  8. Jeesie says:

    So basically this just tells us he’s shirking work for no good reason as usual.

    Seriously, is his PR actively working against him? Every single update since the terrible interview just doubles down on the fact he’s lazy, entitled and doesn’t care to change.

  9. SoulSPA says:

    I think it could be likely that in case Meghan was in London, they would stay at home to avoid the paps. And that she’d give him moral support. Harry should have someone who loves him close to him. Willnot has a huge support network in the Middleton’s court. Harry on the other hand seems lonely notwithstanding his current long-distance relationship.

    • Lucy says:

      I agree with you, but doesn’t this also speak volumes to the Queen and Charles? We pick on William a lot on here but the fact that he really took to the Mids. and Harry himself is trying to find support elsewhere speaks to just how bad of a relationship Charles, Camilla, Phillip and the Queen actually have, and probably for a long time have had, with them. I do feel a bit sorry for both of them that they never had a support system in their own family.

      • Maria says:

        I think Charles is and has been a caring father. It’s a pity his sons don’t see it that way. I am pretty sure he would be emotionally available to his sons if they were to ask him.

      • RoyalSparkle says:

        Harry was whining on behalf of whiny /throne idle billy middleton. Prince Charles is was a caring, loving supportive single parent for his sons as was Camilla, with/I believe -lived with the Wales men up to billy/waity wedding. and they moving to KP.

      • Enough Already says:

        “Emotionally available to his sons if they would ask him”??
        Does anyone else find this sad and cringeworthy? This says it all. Children shouldn’t have to ask for something so basic. Charles is a caring father and husband but emotionally out to lunch, imo. He is always the pouty, self-righteouss prince at the center of everything. Camilla doesn’t even live with him – she finds joy and solace with her children and grandchildren. Charles is intelligent, loyal and supportive but he is also self-centered. The queen mother and Mountbatten saw to that.

      • Apple says:

        @maria@royalsparkle Charles is not a loving caring father, His image the royals put out is. William and harry are not spoiled whiny men that’s need to grow up. William and harry are not mad or angry just hurt, My opinion is william and harry was never treated correctly after they lost diana. We have to remember diana was these boy’s mother and world .there no amount of money fancy lifestyle can make hurt go away, i look at william and harry like and old wound that’s cover up, a wound can never heal without being treated properly. It was just leave a scar.

      • Maria says:

        @enough already and @apple,
        William and Harry are grown men FFS! If they wanted support from their father, I’m sure he would give it to them. I don’t know why you refer to them as children.
        And Apple, I don’t know how you can be so sure that Charles is not a good father,
        he had the very difficult task of being a single parent, which is not easy. He has his faults, but I don’t believe being a poor parent is one of them.

      • Enough Already says:

        Maria
        One opinion of Charles can be just as valid as another.
        And the last time I checked you are always the child/children of your parents despite your age.
        Charles loves people, imo, but he seems to be missing that vital component that makes him truly able to give to them from an emotional store. Everything is about him.
        This has prevented him from being the parent he could have been to Will and Harry and it will cost him a more secure place in the lives of his grandchildren. Even as we debate this on a gossip site his team is literally steamrolling his sons’ dead mother in order to fluff the public for Queen Cam. During the 20 year anniversary of her death. That’s not what a great dad does. And it’s not the first time Charles has thrown people under the bus for his own ends, including his children. And no, I’m not a Diana looney. Just thought I’d throw that out there before it was trotted out to invalidate my opinions.

      • Maria says:

        You certainly seem to know a lot about Charles.

      • Apple says:

        @ maria Imo charles like his children but he definitely not in love with them, unconditional love doesn’t act that way charles does,but their are people like Charles in the world that’s just tolerate kids. And why should a son have to tell his father he’s need him? how could you tell them to get over grief they lost a piece of their heart the day she died. The same father that send them to boarding school after diana died right.

      • hmmm says:

        If you read Wendy Berry’s book ‘The Housekeeper’s Diary’ there is no question that Charles was an engaged, loving, caring father. His boys are ingrates. It’s more important to them to play victim so they don’t have to work than to take on responsibility and Charles is their whipping boy/scapegoat as well as the RF. It’s shameful.

      • Maria says:

        I’m sorry but was Charles supposed to yank them out of school after she died?
        And how do you know he doesn’t love them unconditionally? I agree that Charles is emotionally stunted thanks to his marvellous childhood as the Queen’s firstborn. And I agree that he is very self-centred. But I also feel that he did the best he could to give his sons a warm family life. And his children who are now 32 and 35 should give him some credit for supporting them through those critical years following their mother’s death.

      • Enough Already says:

        I don’t see these factors as mutually exclusive. Charles is not the heartless ogre Diana tried to portray him as and it is clear that his sons have a version of admiration and respect for him. But something is clearly missing and you can not blame it on filial ingratitude. It takes mental gymnastics to conclude that both William and Harry are ungrateful, scornful brats who refuse to throw father of the year Charles a bone. Not buying it. Those boys are unwilling to form closer bonds with their father for a reason and probably a damn good one.

      • notasugarhere says:

        Charles and William? Yes, I can see strain there. He would never have encouraged William to marry someone he didn’t love. Tales of Wm admitting he didn’t love KM enough to marry her or be faithful? I can believe the stories of Charles saying marry KM or cut her loose. Just like Philip did to Charles about Diana.

        But William hates expectations, and at some point even Charles is going to have expectations of how he should work and assume his responsibilities. William’s own attitudes towards infidelity mean whatever reasons he may be estranged from his father do not include infidelity.

        Between Charles and Harry I don’t see a strained relationship. Charles beams with pride about Harry over Invictus and his Chelsea garden work. He’s having Harry trained in Duchy work in the Romanian properties. Those two seem to share more interests and a closer bond.

    • BeamMeUpScottie says:

      @SoulsSpa, This!

      It looks like such a lonely life – what with every man and his dog telling you what is good for them (not you).
      I don’t care how many homes Harry has access to and how much £££, servants and chauffers he has, I wouldnt swap my life for his current one. Not in a gazillion years.

      • SoulSPA says:

        @Lucy and @BeamMeUpScottie, I totally agree with your points of view. Leaving their laziness and entitlement aside, and seeing the brothers as two human beings: no amount of privilege and luxury can totally make up for lack of meaningful, loving and loyal relationships. From what I read in the press for ages now, their emotional struggles are real and so is the toxicity in the RF. Growing up in such environment plus the media scrutiny has affected them and it shows. But what I don’t fully understand is their apparent lack of resilience and drive to overcome their challenges. I empathize to some extent but even then, there are many people that manage to fix their problems and still work, provide for themselves or their families, improve their quality of life. I guess that the safety provided to them by their titles and wealth has made them more wrong than good. And the vicious cycle continues at the expense of the UK people.

      • Sami says:

        @SoulSPA

        Necessity is the mother of invention. People “get on with it” to the extent that their circumstances demand it. You might have a toxic family but you hold a job through your misery because otherwise you will starve. Similarly, someone living in the middle of a civil war may have a toxic family but never have the luxury to even register it as toxic as you may have because all energies are poured to survival. Having said that, I think they are fine. They have an idea of what the monarchy has to look like to their generation if it is to survive and they are probably right. I cant imagine anybody under the age of 40 cares that much about these daily appearances the older royals keep making.

      • RoyalSparkle says:

        What toxicity – the princes like the other grandchildren seem to had a protective, spoiled – different life.

      • PrincessK says:

        Very well said, everyone who seems to harp on about their priviledged life would absolutely hate the life they lead if they found themselves in it, and explains why William and Harry have had such a tough time finding wives in this social media obsessed world of envy, jealous and vanity.

    • BeamMeUpScottie says:

      @SoulSpa,
      Good point.
      But most people don’t build up resilience under the 24/7 glare of the world’s media and the world’s 7.3 billion resilience experts….

      Seeing all the aggro H and MM have attracted has given me a new found respect for anonymity.

  10. Lucy says:

    I’m going to be the minority and say there will be a breakup. These reports are getting to be a little too much and it makes me sense trouble.

    • scar says:

      Shut up you racist!

      • Linda says:

        Why does saying they will breakup make someone a racist. I am not a racist and I don’t think they will stay together. I don’t think Harry will marry for many more years.

      • Lucy says:

        Seek help scar

      • Llamas says:

        I think Scar was being sarcastic.

      • notasugarhere says:

        Yes, my guess is sarcasm as well. Scar was all over threads the other day being firmly anti-Meghan Markle.

      • Lucy says:

        I should hope Scar is being sarcastic, I don’t think I was in any way racist. But nonetheless I just don’t see this being long term, just my opinion

    • Nessa nessa says:

      If they break up they break up but this isn’t no different then the articles they released before. It’s been 4 weeks since they had something to write about….they want the clicks. That’s it

      • PrincessK says:

        If they break up it will be terrible, Harry has to make his mind up now because Meghan has been put under so much scrutiny and she now needs the full support and protection of the royal machinery, which comes with its own downside, as they also act as spies as Diana would tell you.

    • Pumpkin Pie says:

      Sorry @scar, there is NOTHING that suggests racism in @lucy’s comment.

      • Flufff says:

        Scar is being sarcastic. Scar is an anti-Meghan poster and is mocking the trend of assigning racist motives to the anti-Meghan brigade.

    • Sam says:

      50% chance you are right….or wrong

    • seesittellsit says:

      @Lucy – well (sighs) all my bets have gone wrong this year, but I sense scope and texture here and I’ll see your bet and raise on an engagement announcement by New Year’s.

    • Adele Dazeem says:

      I wonder if Meghan is starting to see what a high maintenance guy–and family-she’d be getting involved with. I’ve always been aboard the Harkle train but I’m starting to really dislike Harry these days and wondering if Meghan is seeing it too.
      #Transference

  11. Idky says:

    So again, a news update from E!

    Seems as if every time she’s in a London and there is an event of some sort she’s hiding out at home – Pippa’s wedding and now Princess Diaba’s rededication. Waity II sitting at home waiting for her prince to return………

    Getting that ring will not be easy, Meghan. No engagement anytime soon.

    • themummy says:

      They’ve been dating less than a year–how in the world is she Waity at all?? Of course she stays back when there are engagements because she’s not part of the royal family and since they have been dating such a short time. This comment is kind of silly. It is literally impossible to be a Waity when they’ve been dating like 10 months.

    • Erica says:

      In order to be doing a waity (1)she would have to ditch all her old friends (2.)Not work at all and schedule her life around her Prince (3.)Go shopping and have endless vacations( 4.)if the press starts to question why you don’t work say its because the press make it difficult to go to work(5) Cling on and wait some more till he’s ready to marry. Meghan is definitely not doing a waity.

      • GiBee says:

        Isn’t she getting close on a few of those points though?

      • SoulSPA says:

        Erica, LOL!!!!! May I add, pun intended: (6) conspire with mother on the best practices to acquire prince, (7) practice, practice, practice the best practices *excuse the redundancy* mentioned at point 7, (8) spend a few hours in the gym, every day, to prepare those legs for windy days, (9) try to come out with a really posh English accent (a bit of a stretch I know), preferably without a dialect coach,and (10) practice maniac grins and “oh, it’s so lovely/interesting” expressions, showing you’re really into it.

      • CynicalAnn says:

        Exactly. She still has a job, her own friends, her own life. He flies to see her frequently. It’s been a year. If she ditches her job, moves to London and is just the off and on girlfriend for 5 years-then she can be Waity. Right now she’s just a 35 year old woman with her own life, job and a boyfriend who lives on another continent.

      • Nessa nessa says:

        @GiBee no Meghan hasn’t hit any of those points lol. And go to tumblr…I’m sure they do. Outside of maybe a boob job Meghan removed…though that could have just been a combo of bra’s/weight loss…she haven’t had anything done. She look exactly as she did when she was a tiny girl. Same with Kate…she look the same outside of baby fat lost.

    • Nessa nessa says:

      They haven’t even been together a year yet…she still working & I doubt they are trying to get married right now. How is she waity?

      • SoulSPA says:

        Such is Kannot’s legacy so it’s extrapolated to Harry’s girl, with or without merits. I am very new to CB and I don’t know if there’s been such criticism towards Chelsy or Cressida but as a former DM reader I couldn’t find that many reactions towards them.

    • RoyalSparkle says:

      Meghan will maybe accompany Prince Harry to the rededication- but kept low key.

    • PrincessK says:

      For all we know she may be attending the dedication. Harry and Meghan are very good at moving around without people seeing them.

  12. Em' says:

    How in the world can a source know that they watched Moana???
    This is so weirdly specific

    • Nessa nessa says:

      They made it up

    • Mildred Fierce says:

      Oddly enough, Moana just got added to Netflix Instant in the U.S. on June 20, (don’t know about the UK) which lead me to believe that either the E writer just picked out a random title he or she watched last night or Meghan and Harry have enough free time to keep on top of their Netflix queue.

  13. CityGirl says:

    I don’t care about all the nay-sayers (is that how you spell that?)

    Given every atrocity that is happening in our shoddy federal gov’t and all the hate and “isms” we are experiencing and or witnessing in the US, updates of these two as a successful couple, make me happy. And for that, I say, keep the updates coming and thank you very much!

    • GiBee says:

      See? The only ones defending them are the type that can’t Google “Naysayers”. AKA illiterate women.

      • WeAreAllMadeofStars says:

        Maybe you should Google whether or not “naysayers” was supposed to be capitalized. Just saying.

  14. Starryfish says:

    They spend so much of their time together shut in, and pap photos of her have all but stopped. I wonder if some of the disappearing act that Meghan has done of late (even stateside) is due to the groundwork being laid for their next steps? Maybe they’ve got her off doing her so-called “princess lessons.”

    • Nessa nessa says:

      I doubt it…I think she is under the grid for her own sanity. So she shut down her blog & stop posting to protect herself from further intrusion. It’s one thing to connect as a moderately successful actress on a show & blogger. She had a sense of anonymity…she could travel, talk out…without the intrusion. She gave what she wanted & no one trying to look further. Now she with a prince & it’s obsessive. I don’t think all this is for “Princess training” & just her way of handling the intrusion.

      • SoulSPA says:

        Aww, Starryfish. What do those lessons consist of, if you don’t mind me asking? Thank you!

      • Starryfish says:

        I don’t doubt the attention would drive just about anyone insane, and I agree about shutting down the blog etc. It’s just for a while she was getting papped pretty much daily and these days she’s almost never seen unless she’s on her way to see/be seen with him ( i.e. the weekend haunt for polo) Maybe I’m just rooting for them because of how nuts this coupling seems to make people, or that I hope she is smart enough not to shut down her whole life without some more concrete plans having been made, but I’m crossing my fingers that they are hunkering down prepping for a major announcement of some sort.

      • Nessa nessa says:

        Meh I think she just took a different route to go place instead of what the ways she use to before. Also they I believe blanketed her shooting schedule, so they can’t find her. I think in a way she had shut down her life…in a way. But also think, purely guessing here, she just re-arranged it. Not so much stop. But realizing “I can’t walk to yoga class…might need to do it at home or go to another place”….”I might can’t post random stuff or else people will be too intrusive…let me not”….”I won’t be selling my clothes on my own merit, let me stop being a spokesperson for this brand”. Etc….I think at this point she is figuring out how to deal & minimize it. I don’t think they are wanting to get married at this point at all. It’s only been like a year…and they are likely hardly around each other enough to be their yet. I think the Newsweek & people quotes are the most closest to the truth…they love each other yes… but they are just seeing how to manage having a real relationship in an unreal situation. That’s it….

      This is in preparation to becoming a member of the BRF.

      Some looking for behaviour as waity/middelton family stalking – to be convinced. Meghan is no waity/middletons 2.0 – needing to be seen/stalking as done to Willnot.

      • PrincessK says:

        Also she is 36 this year, no way will they wait another year if they are serious.

    This screams I got bad press let’s flood the market with updates on my relationship most seem to love

  16. Abs says:

    E news who has been totally wrong about them before? Yeah I’m sure they are fed by Meghan and Meghan only. Anyone could write this article- she was sen on the airport supposedly flying to London, but they’ve no been seen together since (= staying at home), she likes to cook (=they are cooking together) and you know doing things that you do when you are at home like watching movies. (Let’s pretend to know what they watched)… Nobody needs to leak for these kind of articles. They are made up with random stuff thrown in that we know about them.

  17. Andrea says:

    I don’t believe it. This is made up shi… we can all imagine harry and Meghan watching tv an write about it. E is expecting us to believe it because they’re owned by the same company that owns USA network. I disagree that Meghan is leaking shit, at this stage that girl don’t have to do anything but breathe and they write about it. We all remember the fake stories of pippa wedding? Yeah all of them make up shit

  18. Flufff says:

    It’s very naive to assume everything comes from Meghan. I worked for a tabloid for two years. A ton of stuff is made up. The writers are explicitly told to look at celeb’s social media and then invent whatever they can couple together.

    And a ton of stories come from random people who know (sometimes only vaguely know) celebs. Awful lot of hangers on eager to make a quick buck.

  19. Sam says:

    Im laughing my ass of at people that think Meghan stays at KP all day waiting for Harry.Like she doesnt have friends in London that she can visit

    • BeamMeUpScottie says:

    • PrincessK says:

      Very true, I believe she goes out and about and with Harry , they have almost perfected the art of avoiding being photographed together. The day they are seen side by side at an ofiicial event will be mega front page news…( I can’t wait!) …the media are going to love Meghan and the way she is going to make newspapers and magazines fly off the shelves.

  20. HoustonGrl says:

    She has such good taste in clothing!

  21. A says:

    I’m not even mad about her keeping in the press constantly. Yeah, she’s annoying at times, and yeah, every royal girlfriend lies and embellishes their accomplishments, but the fact that she’s playing the media game indicates to me that she knows, somewhat, what the position calls for and she’s willing to engage with being in the public eye.

    I mean, I dunno, personally, this could go two ways. She could be really good at managing the press and in the process bring something new or positive to the RF. Or this could all backfire on her and she’ll wind up looking like a weirdo.

    • Nessa nessa says:

      Or…let’s say it together E! Made it all up for clicks….and no one fed the press anything. That this fan fic was created in their own head. And none of this is happening at all. Because it was made up…all they know is she is in London. The rest they are filling in because the public is obsessed with her & them together.

  22. Jo says:

    She and Harry need another pap stroll. Her PR team is getting desperate, she’s already made her friend Lainey who was going on and on about Meghan appearing at Pippa’s wedding look like a fool and Harry needs to distract people from his extreme arragonce in that Newsweek article.

    • Nessa nessa says:

      Why in the world do y’all insist that her PR is planting anything? They all talk about this girl since it was confirmed they were dating. It’s just that E! is the one that’s posted here lately….

    • Bellagio DuPont says:

      @ Jo :

      This narrative is 100%, almost word for word typical of posters on “that” royal site. They are deeply obsessed with this couple and display the most corrosively cynical views of any woman that I have ever seen. I can’t quite work out the reason behind the poison…..the keep proclaiming themselves not to be racist, yet very few emotions are strong enough to produce that level of bitterness and spite. Is it jealousy? Envy? Who knows?

      I won’t publicize it by giving the name of the site, (Not DM) but only want to say this: Remember you’re dealing with people at the end of the day who have real feelings and emotions. Also remember that you do not know the full truth of their story unless they tell it to you themselves. So I’m appealing to you to kill the hate. It’s not healthy.

      • notasugarhere says:

        Some of those posters were so over-the-top that other royal sites banned talk of W&H. They had to go off and create a new site to bash MM endlessly unchecked. Pathetic.

  23. seesittellsit says:

    Well, for what it’s worth, in addition to the Daily Express, which I find hilarious for its “And then THIS happened!” clickbait articles, my other guilty pleasure is Data Lounge, those shameless, merciless, no holds barred gossip mavens. They usually cover entertainment, but they do do the royals, too, and on one of the recent threads covering Harry’s “No one wants to be King!” article, MM’s name of course came up, and one of the commenters put up a link to a long article on how the royals are managing, through varied legal means, to stifle free press and head off any publishing of information on MM and her past and private life. The article’s legal implications are quite interesting. Basically, the royals have managed to threaten the press, especially smaller outlets, with huge legal fees if they dare to publish anything derogatory – even if it is true. MM has lawyers in London who sent letters to press outlets warning them of legal consequences if they tried to talk to people who know her or worked with her or to “coerce” information out of them (read: bribe or pay).

    All of which says to me that 1) Harry fully intends to marry MM and is making sure no one can dig up or publish anything about her past, and 2) MM has enough in her past to make them both nervous.

    I should add that the opinion of most of those on DL is that Harry is a spoilt “kidult” and dolt who would be nothing without his title, position, and money. I share that opinion, and think that he and MM pretty much deserve each other. I don’t like either of them. Of course, I don’t like William and Kate, either. The Queen is the last of a dying breed.

    I don’t want to put the link up, but if you go to DL, and search “Harry”, you’ll find the thread, and if you scroll through the posts you’ll come to the poster who put the link to the article on how the royals have organized to shut the press up.

    • BeamMeUpScottie says:

      Doesnt this go back to that Sun piece for which they had to publish a retraction and apology to her? That was a lazy, hatchet job for which she probably would have won significant damages £££, had she wanted to sue.

      I am all for public interest reports, but articles which news outlets publish that their lazy writers (not journalists) cannot even bother to do basic research must not be used to damage people’s reputation, (whether it’s MM or any one else) . In that case, they need to pursued to the fullest extent of the law.

      • seesittellsit says:

        I think if you read the article I mentioned, you’ll find that the new laws paint with a very broad brush: it has nothing to do with whether or not the published story is true or not – the royals are now able to threaten to bust especially smaller outlets and put them out of business if they print anything that the royals don’t like. I have massive contempt for outlets like The Sun, but I also have profound feelings about a free press. It’s a bit of a knife-edge, but the fact is, true or not, the public will never know because the circumstances now totally favor the royals, who have got the press into a tight corner legally. If you’re a dyed in the wool royalist, you support this. But if you think the monarchy is already privileged enough, and I count myself in the latter group, you may feel that this is another unfair advantage for a bunch of already over-privileged people – especially ones trumpeting how ordinary they are and how much like you and me.

        The image of Harry’s and MM’s relationship is being carefully packaged and sold to the UK public to ensure acceptance and lack of negative PR. Controlling what gets out about her, even if factual, is part of that packaging.

      • Sam says:

        I doubt the royals can threaten the press,they need the press and that would just do more harm than good.The press already publish things about Meghan’s past and previous private life,If they found anything thats potentially damaging, they would have written about it by now.

      • seesittellsit says:

        @Sam – they need the press to say nice things about them. That little public rant by Harry to “protect” MM was just that: a threat. I really suggest you read the article I mentioned. You’ll see exactly how the game is played these days. And the only things out about MM’s past are what are already matters of public record: age, professions, public interests, marriage, divorce. If you think there isn’t more, you’re naive. And if you think Harry and the royal PR machine won’t move heaven and earth to keep it from getting out, you’re doubly naive.

        They need the press to do what they want. They don’t need, nor do they want, a really free press.

      • notasugarhere says:

        seeit, the BRF does not control the world’s press. If there was anything horrible in her past it would likely have gotten out already in a non-UK format. Tabloids been frantically digging for a year, ergo there is nothing there to hide as much as some seem to want there to be.

        I am also a strong proponent of free speech and a free press. BTW a free press doesn’t mean tabloids are allowed to lie and libel with immunity, just like social media doesn’t mean say whatever you want without repercussion. Someone in Spain was arrested and charged with libeling Queen Letizia on twitter. Not because Spanish royals control the media, but because that person broke the law.

      • BeamMeUpScottie says:

        seesittellsit, imo, the UK press has been anything but complimentary about Harry and Meghan – on the contrary. So I don’t see a packaged story or a positive narrative coming from them at all.

    • PrincessK says:

      @seesitteelsit ….Well I DO like Harry and Meghan, but what you have just said rings very true and supports my previous comments about Camilla the Cow, for which I was lambasted, who has been remarking that the Palace machinery are pulling out all the stops to ease the pathway for divorcee Meghan, and that things are being made so much easier than they were for her. Anyway Camilla is delusional comparing herself with Meghan, and bringing out the Penny Junior book at this time is jaw droppingly insensitive.

      • seesittellsit says:

        @PrincessK – oh, a great deal of marketing was done prior to bringing Camilla forward. What always amazes me is how naive people are about there being anything “natural” about the way these things are managed for the royals.

        Camilla, however, was part of an English country set familiar to the Brits, a bona fide CoE member, and her marriage was a long-term one with children. Charles is one of her kids’ godparents, I don’t know which one. Camilla was much more a recognizable “known quantity” if you will, to the British. The big mistake Charles made was not flipping the bird to the Firm in the 1970s and refusing to marry anyone else. It was the beloved Diana who was Camilla’s problem, not her divorce. And for the record, I didn’t like Diana, either.

        MM is a different kettle of fish. And Harry isn’t the Heir to the Throne. If he were, MM would never have stood a snowball’s at landing him.

        I’m just always stunned how much goes on behind the scenes, the calculations, the cynicism, the PR machine, etc., that so many people ignore and trust that tired old phrase, “fairy tale romance”.

      • Suze says:

        What? I have not heard Camilla say anything of the sort but if there’s any truth at all to it, that’s hysterical.

        There was a lot work put into making Camilla accepted, for sure. And there will be a bit g roll out for f Meghanif and when the time comes.

  24. Suze says:

    This is all made up fluff. No one knows a darn thing.

    I like that.

    This is about the only thing the British royal family has managed to be discreet about recently.

  25. Addie says:

    Whenever I see pictures of Harry looking serious, he just comes across as really dim.

    • Claudia Remm says:

      Why do you say something like that? What are the signs on a serious face which make you think a person is dim? What a nasty thing to say, does it make you feel better now?

      • seesittellsit says:

        @Claudia Remm – FWIW, Harry himself has said he found academics “difficult”.

        There’s no law that says people with HRH in front of their names must ipso facto be exceptionally bright, but Harry doesn’t exactly come across as the brightest bulb in the packet.

      • Claudia Remm says:

        What has your comment to do with what Addie wrote? When Harry looks serious, he comes across as really dim. What a crazy comment.
        Harry does not come across as being bright, he finds academics difficult and that’s why his serious face comes across as dim. What sort of logic is this? Would you say that you give the impression of being bright with your comment?
        I am totally fed up with all these nasty and hateful postings, which are everywhere on the internet and which are so pointless and a waste of time. It is not just Trump, there are millions like him.
        And please, don’t tell me now, that I don’t have to read it. This here is celebitchy and not the DM.

      • notasugarhere says:

        Is this supposed to be a new version of Resting Bitch Face? You think he ‘looks dim’ when he’s being serious?

        seeit, it is possible any dyslexic who wasn’t diagnosed until age 17 would find standard academics difficult. Because like Princess Beatrice and Crown Princess Victoria of Sweden, Harry is said to be dyslexic.

        A person not being good at standard academics or having dyslexia does not make them “dim”. See Charles Schwab, Richard Branson, and Dean Kamen, all of whom happen to be dyslexic.

      • Suze says:

        It’s Celebitchy not the super nice royal forum. I am not sure why you expect to find complimentary comments here. If you want to read nice things about royals there are such places you can do so.

        Harry has a great deal of personal charm, a high emotional IQ in his public interactions, and drive and commitment toward certain causes that he feels passionate about.

        But I find him to be a bit of a blank slate at times, too. A bit dull looking when he’s not engaged. If that fuels your outrage, so be it.

        I just don’t get it when people get outraged over snarky comments here on CB. It’s a snark site. Much, much worse is said about other celebrities.

      • notasugarhere says:

        Suze, my comment was in response to seesit, who doesn’t appear to know that Harry is said to be dyslexic, which is why he struggled academically. She ascribes it to him being unintelligent, when in fact it was likely due to his educators failing to recognize his condition and addressing it properly.

  26. seesittellsit says:

    Look, here is the link to the article I’ve been referring to:

    http://www.popbitch.com/home/2016/12/08/part-iii-battle-royal/

    It is from December 2016, and it outlines changes to the way the press in the UK (not the world, the UK) regulates itself and those changes make it financially dangerous for any news outlet to publish an unfavorable story about the royals – because those changes mean that even if the news outlet is sued and wins the case and what they wrote is true, they have to pay ALL the costs. It amounts to financial blackmail and presents a deterrent to a free press – obnoxious as such a thing often is.

    The real meat of the article begins with, “The dynamics of the ruling class, celebrities and the press is shifting under our feet. Legislation influence by Royal Charter is about six weeks from potentially changing the face of press reporting for good.”

    There is a great deal in it about IPSO, Impress, and the PRP. It isn’t as much fun as outright gossip, but it does tell you a lot about how the UK press is being “managed” these days. I have no clue whether or what Meghan Markle might have to hide – she works in a notoriously nasty business and she’s no blushing ingenue. But if she does have something to hide, you can bet your last dollar the UK public isn’t going to hear about it, because the changes to press regulatory organizations have made it so dangerous that newspapers aren’t going to want to tell the public – even if it’s true.

    I chanced on the article accidentally and I thought it has enough interesting stuff in it about the UK press to make it relevant to what is often discussed here.

    If people disagree, fine. And yeah, I think Harry is dumb. I think both the Windsor boys are. And I think Diana was deeply emotionally disturbed and needy and Charles the last man on earth she should have married, since he’s incapable of meeting anyone else’s needs. And Prince Philip was a serial adulterer but you didn’t hear much of that in the UK press, did you?

    I just want to put myself on record here: I find all this fun on a “people watching” perspective, but I don’t give a flying patoot who Harry marries, and while I like all the history and stuff, I cannot believe the British are going to put up with this arrangement for more than another 50 years.

    Honestly, people act as if you’ve stabbed them if you say you think Harry is dumb and Meghan Markle is on the make because she’s a D-list actress of 36 and she knows that this is as far as she goes with the acting career and the SS Harry Windsor sailing into port is going to give her a new lease on stardom.

    I’m not stabbing anyone. I’m fairly cynical, I read a lot, I love history, and I like the clothes and jewels, but I don’t LIKE any of these people. If you disagree with me, fine.

    But i did think the article was interesting and threw some light on how things are already being managed for Markle’s royal debut. If other people don’t want to look at those bits of info, that’s fine, too.

    • notasugarhere says:

      Was pointing out what you appeared not to know. Harry struggled academically because of dyslexia, not his IQ or lack thereof.

      All of this is interesting, and none of it addresses the point I made. Whatever is or is not happening with the UK press, that is only the UK press. If there was dirt to be had on her, it likely would already have been published by anyone outside the UK who could find it. The UK royals can only stage manage what they can in the UK; everywhere else it out of their hands.

      This is probably why Kate Middleton ended up working with Huffington Post — as a way to cozy up to them so they would no longer publish legally taken photographs of her and the kids. The UK press was allowed to publish them but was choosing not to; HP was publishing them outside of the UK. Since the 30 minute “guest editing gig”? They’re not publishing pictures of her and the kids anymore.

      I’m waiting anxiously for the results of the France trial.
