Meghan & Harry

Although her first name is Rachel, she prefers to be known by her second name - Meghan.
Yes, I should imagine the spelling is important.

This isn't just a Meghan 'foible' either.
My dad used his second name - Denzil - that's Denzil with an 'i', not Denzel with an 'e', despite being a surname that originally denoted a person from the manor of Denzell in Cornwall.
Those from the Manor of Denzell were named Denzil.
Probably because they weren't a house! :-D

i think they are a weird couple!
Never been a fan of Harrys since he became a "man" & i do think Meghan is definately the boss in their house, she comes across as having the "my way or no way" attitude, IMO!
The less we see of them the better for me.

Leave her alone unless you are happy to have every move you make published and criticised.

Is it 'Megan' or Meghan?

Or does it not matter much?

I have no issues with any member of the Royal family having a private life, but just decide yes I want it to be private or no I want public attention you can't have both and the public purse. The "problem" with Harry and Meghan seems to be saying one thing and doing the other...we shouldn't fly if we can help it but they can not only fly but often and sometimes in private planes. I wish them well but she needs to decide what she is Royal or TV star.

The poor, face to face with wealth, becomes conscious of their poverty.

When are some of the public and all the media going to realise they are not public property. What they choose to do in their private lives is their business nobody else's. Good luck to them and I hope they remain a happy family.

But how do you know it’s was her decision to have a private christening

That’s assuming and putting it all on her

No one knows how they live their lives in private and how they decide on how to keep a private life

I wouldn’t want to be in the spotlight all the time and being scrutinised and criticised for every thing I do or even don’t do

It seems some of the media are trolling her big time .what their motive is is ?

I feel sorry for her TBH
Maybe they want to say I told you so if she says I have had enough and want out

She hasn’t taken Archie with her it’s a break to see her pal serena in the finals

We don’t know how the relationship is between her and Harry but they obviously love each other and adore their baby
