    He’s obviously very happy with her and I don’t really see why he would have been pushed to marry, so I think this is genuine. Whether it makes it last, I guess we’ll see.

    I like her engagement much better than Diana’s. I get the emotional attachment Will had to it and wanted a future English Queen to wear it, but it’s such a dated ring.

    My engagement ring is similar to Kate’s so I am biased...

    It's weird to think that 36 is the age Diana died .

    Haha, this is exactly what I thought! Meghan actually does humanitarian work and likes it (beyond going to Wimbledon), nobody will need to force her to do this and she can't be labelled lazy. I think this is a great match and they look happy together.

    In all fairness, these pics are carefully chosen of a whack of them to maybe make her look more preening than the rest. She's comfortable with press, she isn't going to nervously clutch her crotch the way Kate does, and of course she'll be infinitely more stylish. I read she was quite comfortable at this photo op and Harry seemed nervous. Can't wait for the wedding!

    Prince Harrry is one of my big time crushes (Oh, the things I'd do to him) and I deserve him more than she does, but I think he and Markle are adorable together. I'm happy for them.

    Prince Harry Calls Out Racist And Sexist Treatment Of Girlfriend Meghan Markle

    11/08/2016 11:27 EST
    CLIP AT THE LINK
    X






    In a statement released today, Kensington Palace confirmed the relationship between Prince Harry and actress Meghan Markle. However, in doing so, the palace also pointed out the recent "wave of abuse" against the prince's new girlfriend.




    According to an official statement released by the prince's secretary on Tuesday, the palace said the treatment of the 35-year-old American this past week had crossed the line.


    "Some of this has been very public — the smear on the front page of a national newspaper; the racial undertones of comment pieces; and the outright sexism and racism of social media trolls and web article comments," the statement reads, regarding the treatment of Markle.


    -Advertisement-





    "Some of it has been hidden from the public — the nightly legal battles to keep defamatory stories out of papers; her mother having to struggle past photographers in order to get to her front door; the attempts of reporters and photographers to gain illegal entry to her home and the calls to police that followed; the substantial bribes offered by papers to her ex-boyfriend; the bombardment of nearly every friend, co-worker, and loved one in her life."




    News of the rumoured relationship between the Toronto-based "Suits" actress and the 32-year-old prince first became public in late October.


    The Sunday Express reported the two met during the launch of the countdown for the 2017 Invictus Games in Toronto in May.



    The statement continued:
    "Prince Harry is worried about Ms. Markle’s safety and is deeply disappointed that he has not been able to protect her."


    Social media users were quick to point out the prince's (rare) stance on race and sexism, and how media coverage of Markle has had racist and sexist undertones in the past week.


    Arlene Dixon‏ @vivarlene Never had much interest in royalty. But big up Prince harry for standing up for his mixed race girlfriend.

    Charlene White @CharleneWhiteSome of the racist undertones used by so-called "respected" paper columnists have been disgraceful re: Harry and Meghan. Grow up.



    Charlene White @CharleneWhite I may or may not be eye-balling Rachel Johnson for this little gem. "Thicken their blood with some rich and exotic DNA". EXOTIC. Kmt. pic.twitter.com/SEmCW9cVXF







    anita rani@itsanitarani So much respect #PrinceHarry the coolest royal gets better and better. Calling out the press for racism.
























    Since the news of their relationship was made public, some publications were quick to comment on Markle's half-black half-white identity.


    Papers like the Daily Mail wrote how her "great-great-great grandfather was a slave," how Markle had "exotic DNA" and described the actress' black mother having "dreadlocks and a nose stud."


    Several other headlines described Markle simply has "Harry's girlfriend," while the U.K.'s Sun ran a headline stating, "fancy a quick puck," (commenting on the star's "close friendship" with Canadian hockey player Michael Del Zotto).



    However, some Twitter users also brought up Prince Harry's racist controversies in the past.












    �� Ferrari Sheppard‏@stopbeingfamous Prince Harry publicly defended his biracial girlfriend from racist attacks. I was like "great", then I remembered him in that Nazi costume.

    Marek Mika‏ @MarekmikaMarek 7#PrinceHarry 7years ago called a platoon member a Paki . Dressed up as a nazi for fun now is the voice condemning racism. Poor rich boy












    I mean... shouldn't he anyway? Shouldn't he regardless of the fact that he just so happens to be dating a black woman?

    Anyways...��

    Markle has yet to comment on her relationship with the prince.

    Whoa. Fuck me. It's a wonder the grands didn't stroke out over that one!
    I hope Philip makes it until the wedding next year and then is confronted by the bride's mom, that could be "fun". How old is he? 96?

    I bet Kate is quietly pleased with how unflattering that coat in todays pics is. And shouldn't she be wearing nude hose? I thought they "had to".

    Yes, bare legs are frowned upon. So are a million other things. God, she has NO idea what she's getting into.

    I think Kate is more pleased with the fact that American tabloids won't impregnate her at Jennifer Aniston speed anymore . That's now Meghan's role, she's American and more relatable to their readers

    This! From what Ive seen Meghan has some done some humanitarian work and enjoys it, plus speaks well. Whereas, I dont know what Kate does besides attend Wimbledon and meet tennis players. Also, attend some fancy dinner events.

    Growing up, I always remember seeing Diana doing a lot of humanitarian work and working with charities.

    I have a bit of an irrational hatred of her name -- I think it's the alliteration. I know that's a weird thing to comment on, but it's been bugging me all day. I'm weird like that.

    What I really want is for someone to put a camera on Chelsy Davy. She looks like she'd be the kind to have a drink or 12 and show her ass about the whole thing.

    I figured she and Harry would go back and forth until they finally married and divorced in spectacular fashion, anyway.
