When your brain is full of really obnoxiously random royal facts such as mine, it takes all I have not to scream when coming across headlines as those that were floating around yesterday after the Queen’s Young Leaders event.

No, no, the majority of headlines were not about the aforementioned young leaders, rather the fact that Meghan…

Getting serious with Harry & Meghan

mm

As you all know, I love a good theory, especially when there are legitimate clues involved. So last night, while perusing the old Instagram, I decided to check Meghan’s. I was surprised to see her latest post about shutting down her blog, The Tig. What would normally be of little interest to me, this news actually piqued my interest. Because for me, this points to things getting serious for her and Harry. I know that many people expect her exit on Suits to be the ultimate sign — and which I expect to inevitably happen within the next year — but I think this is a sign as well.

While I understand that running a blog is actually a lot of work, cough cough this blog is a prime example, I don’t think she was doing it all herself. And I have a sneaking suspicion she has  lot of down time while holed up at Harry’s Kensington Palace apartment. So why shut it down? Or why not just put it on a hiatus? Something bigger is at play here, and I for one really really hope we have news of an engagement soon because I am beyond intrigued to see how their relationship can bring some life to the British Royal Family. And because we all want Harry to be happy.

Though, of course, this will break my Harry + Chelsy-loving heart… le sigh.

What do you think? Am I reaching or is there something to be said about the shutting down of “The Tig”?

Prince Harry & Meghan Markle: A love match at last?

screen-shot-2016-11-28-at-10-33-43

I had no idea who Meghan Markle was until a few weeks ago when her name started popping up in headlines across the web. I googled her a bit, was stunned by her beauty, and found the fling to be rather believable. Emphasis on fling. Then the palace released a statement on Harry’s behalf pleading to leave his new lady in peace, and I knew she must really be something. (Side note: I also thought that must really irk Kate seeing as how she waited for William for ten years during which she was hounded by the press, only William hardly spoke up for her…)  And William just released his own statement on the matter…

Speaking of Kate, the Kate and Meghan comparisons are in full swing. And there’s already rumor aplenty that Kate is already feeling threatened by Meghan (to be taken with a grain of salt, of course).

It’s pretty incredible, to say the least, how far the royals have come in such a short time (relatively speaking), it was only 60 years ago that Princess Margaret was denied her love, Peter Townsend, something worth bringing up because Meghan is a divorcee as was Peter Townsend. But thankfully the Queen seems to have come around, seeing as how Prince Charles married not only a divorcee, but his mistress.

It will be interesting to see how this relationship continues to unfold, I for one hope it ends with the ring, as Harry does seem over the moon, and we’re all hoping Harry finds happiness at last.

What do you think? Should we dust off our fascinators and get ready for a royal wedding?
