Meghan Leaving Suits, Rachel Zane Gets Married & Latest Photos of Meghan!

For months we've been hearing endless rumours and reports on Meghan's plans for the future. It was widely expected she would leave Suits when filming for season seven commenced, and over the past twenty-four hours sources have confirmed to several reputable news outlets, not only is Meghan departing but Patrick J Adams, who plays her love interest Mike Ross, also plans to move on to new projects. Meghan was photographed on set over the weekend following a busy week of filming.


Earlier today, Patrick J Adams posted a cast shot on Instagram. Season seven filming wraps up on Friday.



'Sources tell The Hollywood Reporter that the NBCUniversal-owned cable network is close to a deal to renew its "Blue Skies" procedural for an eighth season as stars Patrick J. Adams and Meghan Markle plot their exit from the Aaron Korsh-created series.
Adams has been with the series for all seven seasons and recently started directing episodes of the legal procedural, the last remaining drama from USA Network's "Blue Skies" brand (before the cabler went darker after the success of Mr. Robot). Adams earned a SAG Award nomination for his role as likeable bad-boy lawyer Mike Ross. Sources note he is looking to pursue other creative avenues beyond Suits. The actor has been in contract talks for months but now appears poised to exit.
Markle co-stars as Rachel Zane, a paralegal-turned-lawyer at the show's law firm who is engaged to marry Mike. Speculation about Adams and Markle's exits resurfaced over the weekend as the duo were spotted on the show's Toronto set filming a wedding scene. Speculation that Markle, an avid philanthropist who also has been with Suits since its start, could exit the series began almost immediately after she started dating Prince Harry in 2016. Her departure opens the door for a potential royal wedding, which has been wildly speculated since the actress met Queen Elizabeth.'

The news was certainly expected and paves the way for Meghan to move to London this month. I have no doubt it will be difficult for her to say goodbye to Rachel Zane; not only did the role give Meghan her big break, but she's very independent and giving up her acting career is obviously a sacrifice she is happy to make because (it almost seems a done deal) she and Harry have planned their future. She has previously said, long before she met Harry, she would love to dedicate herself full time to philanthropy. A royal position is the perfect platform from which to explore that avenue.

How will Rachel Zane's story end? I don't want to give away too much (if you are a Suits fan and haven't already heard and don't wish to, avert your eyes :)). Meghan donned a wedding dress for filming in Toronto last week as her character finally got her fairy-tale ending and married longtime love Mike Ross. I'm sure there were jokes from fellow cast and crew members about Meghan's own possible nuptials. It was possibly a rather surreal day for her too as the next time she puts on a wedding dress it will be for her own real-life fairy tale.


According to Hello!, Meghan wore the Anne Barge wedding gown from season five (it's the character's second attempt to reach the altar). Founded in 1999, Anne Barge is renowned for timeless style with a contemporary twist. Enchanted by weddings from a young age, Anne Barge was destined for design. As a child, Anne spent many weekends sitting beside her mother, a concert pianist, through wedding ceremonies and special occasions alike. Inspired by real brides as they wed, Anne sketched gowns for friends and family until finally pursuing design school following her graduation from the University of Georgia. A favourite among celebrity brides and red carpet icons alike, Anne Barge has created custom designs for Laura Benanti, Johanna Braddy, Kristen Cavallari, Yvonne Orji, Violett Beane, Amirah Vann, Leah Pipes, Taraji P Henson, Amber Riley, Lauren Alaina and more.


The Versailles Plunge Embroidered Tulle Gown is described: "Fashioned from Italian fabric, this plunging V-neck gown is complemented by a sheer beaded back. Intricate tone-on-tone beading scatters out across a full tulle skirt." It's a beautiful gown; epitomising elegance and sophistication.


There's a great video of Meghan with close friend Jessica Mulroney from the day they were looking through potential wedding dresses.


The crew reportedly filmed the scenes during an overnight shoot at Toronto's King Edward Hotel.


Your faithful scribe got a tad distracted with talk of weddings and fairy-tale endings...back to the candid snaps of Meghan from the weekend.


Meghan wrapped up in the Soia & Kyo Saundra Parka (another brilliant ID from Meghan's Mirror). The piece is described as "a cozy Soia & Kyo puffer coat with a coyote fur ruff at the hood. Zip placket and four front pockets. Ribbed cuffs. Lined. Down fill". The fur trim has been removed from Meghan's parka.


Meghan wore her trusty Kamik Sienna Boots. The cozy boots remain available at Nordstrom.

Also tonight, with thanks to those of you who messaged, the Harry and Meghan: Truly, Madly, Deeply documentary is now available on YouTube.

Finally, the always informative Emily Andrews revealed Harry and Meghan have recently been away. No doubt we'll be seeing an exciting exclusive on that soon!

  1. Exciting times ahead! πŸ‘ Meghan seems such a happy bubbly person just what Prince Harry needs. Is it just me or am I being unkind i am not a great fan of the centre part a side part seems more flattering (for most people to be honest)??

    1. Nope. I am in favor of the side part also. I am very much not a fan of a center part for Kate. Very few people can successfully wear a center part, in my opinion.

    NOW she and Harry have a virtual blank canvas. I am SO excited. Hello London. Here we come. (Did I mention that I am SO excited?

    If Charlotte says Meghan is leaving "Suits" she IS leaving "Suits". If Charlotte says that filming wraps on Friday then filming wraps on FRIDAY.
    No more silly gossip and made up stuff from the media. HalleluYah. :)

  8. Charlotte, you can get "a tad distracted by weddings and fairy tale endings" as many times as you want, as far as I´m concerned! (*chuckle*..) On the contrary: PLEASE DO SO!!! LOL!!
    Patrick Adams possibly leaving the show, too, really surprised me. It was the least possible thing on my mind while contemplating how they might write Meghan "out of the show"....because the whole show was so much based on him and his story.. kind of sweet, you know, as if he couldn´t see himself staying without "his Rachel being there anymore"...
    I wonder how Meghan is feeling at the moment... she must be extremely excited.. and I am SO excited for her!! And happy!! :-))))

  10. Meghan´s co-star Sarah Rafferty (Donna) posted a photo on Instagram, saying that she wrapped season 7 of suits (others might still have some shoots to do, I guess), so I think "the end" (or "new beginnings"? :-))) ) is near.... Bittersweet, I have to say so... I LOVED Meghan and Patrick J Adams on Suits, I really did - to see them both gone... uhhh ohh, that´s hard... As much as I love Gabriel Macht as Harvey Specter, Rick Hoffman as Louis Litt and Sarah Rafferty as Donna Paulsen - it surely won´t be the same... :-(((

  12. Oh Lordy. How very exciting! and a bit sad too for me as a Suits fan.

    It sounds like Suits is wrapping up in the best way though with both Mike and Rachel marrying and going off into the sunset together - I was wondering how Meghan'd departure would play out as the storylines have been so focused on their love story, so I was hoping that she wouldn't just be killed off tragically or something stupid. It's a surprise that Patrick J Adams will be leaving, as you comment Eve, as he was a big part of the story - but seems the right way to play out if they are both moving on - and I do love Harvey and Donna so lets see how it that works next season.

    With the talk that she was moving to London and setting up her own charity base/office it all sounded like it things could possibly take a while to announce anything? I'm in two minds about whether this is to wait until after W&K baby after all and then announce and give Meghan time to establish a bit more philanthropy base in the UK/get some PR/give them time to embed within the public view (If reports about popularity come to mind she's only got a 17% liking with polls recently). However if they wait and announce in May there still could be a late autumn winter wedding, but I think we have to avoid 2019 and Brexit et all.

    I'm still trying to be a giddy kipper though and think that the announcement should come December or early Jan before the Baby fever kicks in so we can have that glorious summer wedding we all need!

    The Wedding dress she wears in Suits btw is gorgeous, but not as flattering as it is on the model? something akin to this to long sleeves, train and a taira wouldn't go amiss though LOL. There's bound to be peonies in there somewhere (as I read it was her favourite flower?) - could be a lovely embroidery detail sweeping around the dress? ... deep breath. calm down. LOL.

  13. Does anyone think that Harry and Meghan will maintain a home in Los Angeles (amongst other homes elsewhere)? That's Meghan's home turf and a place she says she loves and misses.
    They couldn't realistically stay with Meghan's mom when they are in the area as her home wouldn't accommodate PPO's and might not be secureable.

      I don't believe so - Harry has little money of his own other than a relatively small amount from Diana - it would seem very tidy to most of us but he has a very expensive lifestyle - that of people far wealthier than he is.

      Bluntly, the royal family is going to be paying the majority of the bills, and the royal family isn't going to create a situation where an unhappy Meghan could return to the US after children come. Hopefully this won't come to pass, but I don't believe after the experience of the last decades, and given this is a family that plans funerals years in advance, that this won't be a contingency planned for.

      Once she marries Harry and has a family - Meghan's British for life, like it or not. Much as Alexandra in Denmark remained there. Nor would the British public support royal protection - paid for by the public - spending time in the States other than for public duties. Meghan's mum can come visit her.

      I think there might be a country house eventually - I would doubt immediately. But the main home will probably be Kensington Palace - provided grace and favour by the queen - or some similar royal residence. I think multiple homes are very unlikely.

    4. Thanks for your perspectives on that, Julia. They are definitely food for thought. Additionally, the thought did occur to me that someone of means who love the boys as as dearly and as much as many of us do, might gift to Harry and Meghan the deed of a nice country spread free of cost and also clear of any encumbrances as a personal gift. The nobility and aristocracy have showered the royal family with lavish gifts for centuries.
      I also see your point about a home in Los Angeles. The Queen would never want any of her Royal great grandchildren leaving with Meghan for the United States should there ever be a separation between Meghan and Harry. That would just not happen. I hadn't considered that.

      Delete
    5. The Embassy is the residence of the Ambassador to a country, usually located in the seat of government-the British Embassy is in Washington, DC; the American Embassy in London etc. However, there are Consulates located in some major cities, such as Los Angeles. I doubt Harry would stay there. More likely, a hotel, as he did in Toronto, reportedly. Although he did have official business there, Harry was apparently combining both official and personal activities while in Toronto. In the past, some royals have been entertained at private homes when on private business. An Embassy would likely be used for official, State visits only, as William and Catherine have done. I'm sure, between Harry and Meghan, they could come up with someone with an estate and staff that could comfortably accommodate both them and their entourage. If security concerns were a primary concern, most likely the visit would not be made at all. RPRs are assigned to a royal, not per location or event. Where Harry goes, his security goes. Notice photos of Harry on his private African getaway with Meghan.. However, sometimes a royal must calculate risk/benefit. If the trip is strictly personal and security risk is high, the trip probably would not be made.

    6. SWEET JESUS, they aren´t even (officially) engaged yet and we are already starting to talk about their (possible) separation? And an "unhappy" Meghan who will be "British for life" - as if this was a "life sentence in prison"?
      Can we not just ENJOY this time, JUST ONCE? Do WE really have to think of all NEGATIVE eventualities that might happen? They are not even married yet!!! Why can´t we just watch all things UNFOLD and be HAPPY WITH THEM AND FOR THEM!! They are happy and in love at the moment - and should it not work out - the world will not come to an end!!!
      Why don´t we just all send them the most positive energy possible with our excitement about their happiness!! THAT will help them to thrive - as a couple and as individuals!!
      PLEASE, there are so many bad news ALL THE TIME, on the radio, the tv, the internet, the papers - one could think THE WHOLE WORLD I S BAD NEWS - can we not at least on this blog be just excited for a change, happy, looking forward to something - without being reminded that the next bad thing is BOUND to happen?
      I am most definitely a very realistic person - I surely am the first one to see a possible pitfall - but there´s a difference between being realistic and seeing everything possibly fail - until proven otherwise. That´s not uplifting and helping people to find creative solutions - that´s depressing. It´s a missed chance to enjoy life and in doing so recharging your batteries - so that i f something goes wrong, you have the energy and spirit to find a good solution!!
      Right. Rant over. Sorry for this but I do so wish for this blog to be the one place in this world where one can come to, read and write and later leave, in good spirits, uplifted, energized and excited!!!!

    7. If Meghan is determined that she and Harry have a home in Los Angeles perhaps the Palace could cleverly have a disclaimer in the deed that says that upon the dissolution of the marriage the property reverts to the Windsors, although as I'm writing this it has dawned upon me that if Meghan would want to take the children to Los Angeles she could get her own house and it might be difficult for the Palace to prohibit Meghan from taking her children anywhere she wants. hmmm.

    8. Dearest Eve. My bad. 🀦🏼‍♀️ You are right. Thanks for the reality check. This is a time of happiness and celebration. We don't need to go down the road of negative speculation. No need to do that.

      SOOOOO, to re-calibrate, do you think Meghan will wear one of the Queen's tiara's??? If she doesn't I don't know what I'll do. She just has to wear a tiara and Meghan wearing one of the Queen's would be SO cool. And such a statement that the Queen likes Meghan. :)

      What will be the theme for her wedding? Kate's was "the language of flowers".
      Who will plan the wedding reception?
      Will it be at Buckingham Palace?
      Will they spend their wedding night at Buckingham Palace or Not Cot. Oh please NOT Not Cot, lol.
      How does one top Kate's wedding cake?
      Where will they go on honeymoon?
      Where will they live?
      Will they have a household team? cook, housekeeper, butler, valet?
      After they have children will they go on family vacations with William, Kate, George and Charlotte?
      Will Meghan pick up a British accent? :)
      Will Doria move to London?
      Will Guy and Bogart like bubble and squeak? :)
      Will Harry and Meghan have a coat of arms?
      Will Meghan's dad walk her down the aisle?
      Will Harry and Meghan invite their ex-girlfriend/boyfriends, husband to the wedding?

      AND most importantly will Guy and Bogart get to be ringbearers in the wedding? (Prince George can be there chaperone going down the aisle
      and Charlotte the flower girl.

      And I'm respectfully the opposite Eve, remembering the tragic marriage of Charles and Diana that left Harry so damaged was a fairy tale meant to be a balm against the troubles of the world. It was, looking back, a very selfish way to see it.

      I think the best marriages are ones where there is a realistic acceptance of the difficulties ahead and I've been frankly dismayed, even ashamed at the press and blog pressure on this couple to satisfy some sort of public desire for a wedding while the couple themselves are still in the dizzy, dancing way you feel stage, which is not going to begin to sustain a marriage into the royal family - a place where most people on this blog have agreed they would be reluctant to marry into.

      Royal marriages are the toughest ones out there - even for a practical man like Philip - no there won't be a house in Los Angeles, no Meghan won't be free to do her charitable work how she wishes and to outshine Kate and to rearrange the royal family to her liking - they will rearrange her and she will be told what she can and can't do, no, no one is holding out a welcome mat to her - her popularity according to one poll is lower than Camilla's, in part because she's already made mistakes in the excitement of the moment - which if things had gone more slowly, I think it might well have been different.
      No she won't be free to have any children leave with her - just as Diana would have liked to have left after the marriage break-up but knew she couldn't. Anyone pushing for this couple to marry quickly should be thinking about these things and Meghan and Harry certainly should be.
      This is reality and I frankly think it's unkind and unfair to the couple not to see it that way because otherwise you are contributing to a mad rush where a thoughtful eyes-open progression would be much kinder. I want them to succeed and the only way to do that is to view the situation realistically. The press doesn't care, royal divorces sell big time, but we are humans on this blog and should be looking at this situation honestly - not as a wish fulfillment.

      No I'm not excited, I'm cautiously hopeful for this couple - but I said after the disaster of Charles and Diana, of Andrew and Sarah, that I wasn't going to buy into a fairy tale again because it doesn't exist. I think the external pressure to create one is hugely detrimental to the couple themselves - which is why I won't do it. Because our happy energy won't help them or Charles and Diana would have been the happiest couple in the world - instead the world came to an end for Diana.

    10. The popularity was measuring the royals.Last I checked Meghan isnt a royal,nor does she live here.She hasn't done any engagement here and no one really hears of her here.Comparing her to people that have lived here most their lives,do engagements here and are covered here is unfair and I don't take polls like that seriously. Was there a poll like this conducted for Kate or Chelsy or Cressida? Why Meghan? 3rd poll this year about her and she's not even engaged.Best they measure her popularity when she's actually done something here and is actively part of the royals otherwise,it's null

      Delete
    11. In fairness Julia, we are ALL speculating about EVERYTHING. (apologies to anyone here who may be a close, personal confidant of Harry or Meghan and is therefore not speculating)

      No one knows the truth of any relationship except for the people in it, whether they live in Buckingham Palace or a council house. We have no idea what stage their relationship is in, or how solid it is.

      And for heavens sake that poll isn't worth the paper it was printed on. It also listed an approval rating for George and Charlotte in the high 40's. What have two toddlers done to warrant the approval of the British people? And does their ranking imply that more than 50% responded, "no I don't approve of those two toddlers" ? Nonsense. It was a recognition poll at best.

      It is such a different time and era, in my opinion Harry and Meghan will have much more freedom than anything we've seen before. Not to mention we have a situation I've never seen in my lifetime. A sitting monarch, a Prince of Wales, his direct heir, with soon to be three heirs of his own. Harry and Meghan will be afforded a very wide berth I think.

      I am with Eve. My feet are firmly on the ground but I am still capable of being excited, excited for the potential this couple seems to have, not to mention the boost they may give the monarchy when it is sorely, sorely needed.

  15. I'm so excited to see whats to come for our princess to be. She's beautiful, smart.elegant, and very classy and I think she will fit in the royal family just fine because she's literally Harry's other half. I think Meghan and Kate are going to be besties, imagine seeing them working together so much women power. I think Meghan's fashion is going to be iconic, her style is so chic, elegant, classy, and daring. Don't get me wrong I really love Kate but I feel like she's dressing a little to old for her age and I think Meghan might help her to step out of her shell one day. I have a huge feeling that they might engagement in December and have a summer wedding next year.

  16. I am so glad you included the video of Meghan and Jessica looking at wedding dresses. It was fun to see her "in her element". She seems so lovely - not just physically but personality wise.

    Several have commented on the beautiful back of the wedding dress; I agree, but I think from the front it is terribly unflattering to Meghan. I trust her own will be much more flattering.

    ReplyDelete

    1. I agree. I love the back of the dress, but the front...not so much. It looks better on the model, IMHO.

      Delete
    2. Agreed, bristowmom. The dress is not a prize from the front. It's marginally better on the model; however, on Megan it's just wrong. The model has a belt but "Rachel" does not; in addition,the dress does not seem to have been properly adjusted and nipped in on "Rachel." Such details make a difference. If I were Ms. Mulroney I would have pointed that out when that choice was made. But perhaps they both didn't look at a photograph before deciding on the dress.

      I almost made that mistake with my wedding dress. I had one chosen and went back for another look. While waiting to try it on again I flipped through the book of brides the shop had on hand. (Brides donated one of their wedding photos as part of the shop's marketing.) Fortunately, I saw "my" dress on another bride in a photograph. It photographed so badly that I dismissed that option and chose something infinitely superior.

      There's so much to be considered in such a decision. More pressure when you know your choice will be in the history books for centuries to come.

  17. bristromom. Meghan is short-waisted, and as pretty as the dress is and as pretty as Meghan looks in the dress, a different bodice would have looked better in front since she is short-waisted. I so hope they take that into consideration for her next wedding gown. It just HAS to be perfect. lol

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. P.S. Since Meghan is so short-waisted, she often wears waist length crop tops (and they look cute on her). They have a lot of wedding gowns designed with crop tops these days (there is a famous-blond-young-beachy-female designer who started the trend but I don't know her name) but I don't know how appropriate a crop top wedding gown would be for a royal wedding. Again, I just hope they get the design, cut and style perfect for Meghan. Something perfectly different and beautifully unique. :)

  18. Now that Meghan has finished filming "Suits", we will see if the security unit that has kept her virtually invisible for the past months was indeed furnished by Universal Studios or Harry. IF she remains virtually invisible (going to yoga, walking the dogs, going grocery shopping, etc.) and appears only when she and Harry have public events, THEN we will know that it was Harry "hiding" her.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Bristomom. Yes. πŸŽ‰ A very good confirmation that Jessica will indeed most likely have input into the design of Meghan's ROYAL wedding gown.πŸ‘°πŸ» I truly believe that those two BFF's (and perhaps even Doria) will most totally, definitely work with a British designer. No contest. And probably a British up-and coming-one or even a British as-yet-unknown designer as Jessica and Sophie Trudeau made it a point to use up and coming Canadian designers when designing a wardrobe for Sophie. So the concept is very familiar to Jessica.

    1. I agree with Surfer Girl in my opinion I feel like Meghan's actual royal wedding gown is going to be very different from other royal brides. I have a huge feeling that Meghan's dress might be a little similar to Princess Charlene Of Monaco's wedding dress because it has a edgy vibe towards it and I know that will suit Meghan because her style is very edgy. I think Meghan should have a short train and a medium length veil because I think long veils and trains are very overrated. That is reason why I fell in love with Kate's wedding dress because it was beautiful, simple, elegant and classy and not over the top I hope Meghan can do the same thing for hers. Also what tiara do you think Meghan is going to wear? I think she should wear a tiara from the Queen's collection and her hairstyle should be in elegant updo so we can see the back of her dress well. Do you agree?:)

      Delete
    2. yep. I agree Davion that her hair should be up in an uber elegant updo with one of the Queen's tiaras. I also would like to see a shorter train (she's not going to be Queen, after all) and a medium length veil. Meghan's own design for her clothing brand was very simple, sexy but classy and timeless. Add a little historical wedding pizzaz, some artistic license, to that and voila', Meghan's wedding gown. Beautiful and unique. πŸ‘°πŸ»πŸ’

      Delete
    3. About the wedding gown, Davion, just ask Eve. lol (see her text above) :)

      Delete
  20. Also, I have said before that I want to see more creative, looser updos on Kate. Sexy but still classy,
    something like the updo Meghan has with the wedding gown, and with different variations of that. And with looser, less staid/tight/overworked chignons and a more perkily place ponytail on the days she wears a ponytail and .... (you get the idea, lol).
    Of course, the caveat with that is Kate would probably need a new hair stylist. Like that's ever going to happen ....

  21. It looks like the dress has been altered, probably at the waistline. The deep fold that lies midline on the model is hitched off to the side on Megan. It looks as though the bodice was separated from the skirt for alteration and then incorrectly replaced. Poor, unprofessional workmanship.
    It is a gorgeous dress, as shown on the model.

    1. It´s what I thought the first time when she was supposed to be married (season 5) and they released pictures of her in the wedding dress. I thought: is this dress too big for her? Didn´t they have the right size? Did they have to alter it in a hurry? I have to go back and watch it "in motion" in that episode. Last time I saw it I was too much concentrating on the drama unfolding and therefore got distracted from the dress (what? Me? Getting distracted from a WEDDING DRESS? "Suits" MUST be a pretty gripping show, dear me...) ;-))))

    2. Yes Eve, I was much more concentrating on the storyline, but even I noticed the dress looked a little off and not flattering - very odd for Suits as the fashion is usually so on point and highly tailored.

  22. Oh this is so exciting, I hope there will be an announcement the second week of December, wedding sometime in May, pregnancy announcement in December 2018 baby in June 2019. Sorry I am so excited I cant help but speculate.

  23. I wonder if Meghan will be at Windsor Castle Monday - What do you all think? I'd say there's a good chance she'll arrive in London this weekend and attend, wonderful way to meet the family.

    1. Claudia, that would be HUGE!! If any news about that got out, we could surely see it as a "done deal" (the engagement I mean! LOL)...
      I wouldn´t want to be in Meghan´s shoes though, probably still jetlagged, stressed out after all that filming until the wee hours, moving house, I get kind of extra-tired just by writing it all down...LOL....and then meeting everyone at such a special event.... she better not fall asleep while HM or Prince Philip are delivering their wedding anniversary speeches... *chuckle*...

  24. So Meghan supposedly IS moving her dogs to London (according to the latest news at least). And the Court Circular shows NO engagements for Prince Harry next week...except maybe two - celebrating his grandparents´ 70th wedding anniversary and then his own engagement? Just "pouring some oil into the fire" as we Germans say, hahaha, LOL!!

    Quite honestly, if those two want to wait and first spend some time living together - FINE BY ME. Very wise in any case. How they are going to manage that "in real life", i.e. security-wise, paparazzi-wise, etc, etc, I don´t know, but am CURIOUS to know in any case.
    If I was KP press office, I would just stop this game of "no comment" - which only leaves ample room for the dreaded speculation and only makes it even more attractive for paparazzi et al - and would just release a statement: "HRH Prince Harry and Mrs Meghan Markle have decided to take the next step in their relationship. Mrs Markle will complete her move to London this month and will take up residence with Prince Harry at Kensington Palace. Prince Harry and Mrs Markle would like to kindly ask to respect their space and privacy. They are looking forward to spending this valuable time for their relationship together and will be happy to announce any change in their status in due course. They would like to thank everybody in advance for their understanding and support."
    That would take a lot of pressure off - and really show that the Monarchy has actually "arrived" in the 21st century - where you can´t hide anything or anyone anymore anyway (quite a number of "any"s here, right? LOL!!). So why not acknowledge it and "take the bull by the horns"? Even as a child I found this "a partner is non-existing to the Royal Family until the engagement is officially announced" quite puzzling, and, as I grew older, quite "derogatory" and "disrespectful" to the one in question. Especially, since "engagement fever" was always starting off anyway..including all negative things that come with it (hounded by the media, etc). So what, if they split up? Much better to do it the "official way" - instead of leaving it to the media to speculate about!! If people knew they get the "bits and pieces" from KP directly in due course, I´m sure they would be much less interested in tabloid reports - and photos for that matter....

    1. I 100% agree with you Eve I think when Meghan moves in with Harry she should take it easy while setting in London and then make the engagement announcement. Also you have a good point about Kensington Palace possibly not saying anything about Harry and Meghan's future status as a couple. When Meghan marries Harry I know for a fact that the paparazzi is going to hunt her down and I'm praying to God that they will leave this beautiful couple alone and that Harry protects her at all costs.
