Okay, I’m wading back into the Harry and Meghan pond because Prince Harry and Meghan Markle were photographed out together in London on Wednesday.

The Sun has photos of Harry and Meghan holding hands while walking in London on Wednesday, February 1, after having dinner at Soho House. This came after Harry got back to London from his engagements in Nottingham.
The Sun has a quote from ‘an onlooker’ who said:
“They tried to keep as low-key as possible and were sitting in a small snug area of the restaurant. But it wasn’t a private area and they were happy to be seen. Gary Lineker and a whole host of the Made In Chelsea cast were also there, but they only had eyes for each other.”
They also have a quote from a ‘friend’, who says:
“Meg is not filming in Toronto at the moment so she is free to spend all her time with Harry. They’ve taken things to the next level. They’re practically living together. She cooks for him, he pops out to the gym and they’re just enjoying hanging out. Meg has always enjoyed spending time in London, but she’s really putting down roots. I can see them engaged by spring. I know that sounds a bit crazily soon, but he’s head over heels and they can’t bear to be apart. She’s said she’s ready to give up acting and move to London. He wants to start a family and so does she. Watch this space.”
The first thing I noticed is that I officially dislike Meghan’s casual style. So if she does become Duchess Meghan (Duchess Rachel? (her real first name) ), I’m not sure I’m going to get the “royal whose style I really love” thing from her.
Second thing I noticed: Harry, you’re wearing a nice jacket, take off the ugly hat.
Considering Meghan is 35, her TV series is winding down, and she’s still a low-level actress, I’m not surprised that she’d be willing to hang up her acting career for a career as a royal wife. She’ll have more time to do charity work and really focus on that if she wants to, although I highly doubt she will work more than Kate considering, for whatever reason, Harry is not willing to be seen outworking William. I’m not sure how giving up her jobs to be a royal fits into Meghan’s “focus less on glass slippers and more on pushing through glass ceilings” thing, but if that’s her choice then good for her.
I don’t have much to say about Meghan because I only know her from the few pap photos I’ve seen and the Tig Talk articles I’ve read, although I’ve read a good number of debates about her in various internet comment sections. I’m not opposed to the idea of Duchess Meghan (and have already thought about what I would do, blog-wise, should there be an engagement announcement), but I’m not excited for it either. I would say I’m a bit on the negative side, just because I have a negative view of those Tig Talk articles and that’s really the only place I know her from.
I think those Tig Talk articles are so shallow and boring. Meghan proudly proclaimed she came up with the six questions herself when she started her blog, but they are the most shallow and boring questions. I’m shocked that she got actual, well-known celebrities to give her an interview and then gave them those shallow, boring questions. In return, of course, she got shallow, boring answers. Meghan writes intros on the person being interviewed and their work but I’d much rather hear the person’s thoughts on their work than what they think everything tastes better with.
Anyway, now I’m just complaining, so I’ll stop. But I want to leave you with this: Please be respectful of fellow commenters. Not everyone shares the same opinions on Meghan, and that’s fine, but please don’t insult other commenters for having a differing opinion. It is possible to rebut someone’s argument without shutting them down and being dismissive (which is what the Kate fans usually do to us whenever we say any sort of criticism about her). Also, please don’t insult Kate. There is no reason to insult Kate in order to praise the other women we talk about on here.
