What???? I simply didn't see this coming! Ok, maybe when she did that tasteless Vanity Fair cover, but then weeks passed so I thought it would be yet another of Prince Harry's failed flames. Never thought I'd see the day when an actress of her calibre will make her entry into the royal family. I guess she'll have to leave that tv show now. Besides, this will be her biggest role yet.

I'm interested to see how this will pan out.

Yeah, have been waiting for this since her Vanity Fair cover...

Curious to see the ring he picked. I think her dress/their wedding will be quite different from Will and Kate's since it's her second wedding, am interested to see how they do it. She will make a very pretty Duchess, but somewhere Wallis Simpson is PISSED!

Could see this coming from a mile away.
It's great that they finally confirmed it.
The Vanity Fair cover was such an obvious clue.
I hope this works out for her, because the scrutiny will be intense.

Why? Wallis got to be a Duchess too, albeit without the HRH.

Really?? God! They won't let her wear a veil, surely. This whole thing really caught me off guard. Despite her being so omnipresent, I don't know much about her.

Wallis Simpson was never regarded as a true royal because of the abdication and Queen Mum unofficially banishing her from the family, deservedly so! Meghan will be different because Prince Harry is very much part of the family.

Because it appears that Meghan and Harry are very much welcome and the family is accepting and happy for them (as is the press). It was quite different for Wallis - may have been more based on her personality, but it was publicly blamed on the fact that she was divorced.

I don't know, I have my doubts about her. Even before that corny Vanity Fair cover she was giving me a bit of a social climber vibe. I hope I'm wrong though! Harry is by far my favorite from the clan and they do make a gorgeous couple.

I sometimes think of Harry as smart, just because he seems funny and relatable, but then that mega trashy girl he was dating a decade ago, the Nazi getup.. definitely not the smartest in the family, but yeah, human after all.. not surprised he fell for typical LA stuff (IHHS > acting > blogging > heavy publicity on charities around the same time she hooks up with Harry > sells personal life to Vanity Fair before anyone has finished memorizing her name ). They're not heading to the throne any time soon so it's all good.. I guess.

Lots of folks saw Kate as the definition of a social climber and she and Will seem all right so far .

Wallis Simpson happened in a completely different time and era. I don't think the rules that applied to her (including qualifications for veil adornment) are relevant now. Otherwise, this engagement would have never happened.

Edit: I'm pretty sure the VF interview was a palace approved (if not inspired) move and part of the pre-engagement roll out. VF is the American publication of royal news and unlikely to jeopardise that relationship to service an LA social climber's machinations ;-). You can see the obsequious bowing in every random royal titbit.

Always coming through with such snark, even on a blue Monday, Mulletproof! Shameless!

I bet they're all saying this in the hallways of Buckingham anyway. It's an establishment obsessed with codes of behaviour and decorum after all. I hope people don't buy into the reports of 'delighted British public' over this engagement. It's all the Queen's flying monkeys doing their best to appease her.

I was joking about Wallis, obviously it's a very different time but it makes me laugh to think of her fuming considering she and Meghan are both divorced Americans. Glad times have changed!

I feel like kate is more of a social climber than meghan tbh, she's so bland, like she's jus there to look good and make babies. Meghan seems to have more of a personality and seems to care more about things. I didn't like her at first, but after reading her Wikipedia page she didn't seem so bad. Besides, I'm not a fan of the British stiff upper lip that the windsors put on, I prefer the more human ways of the Scandinavian royals, and I think meghan can bring that
I'm only sad cus I had a crush on him

She just finished filming the rest of the season of Suits, her contract expired and she is now free.

Anyways, she grew on me when I started watching Suits so I really like her and I've had a crush on Harry since forever and I think they make a lovely couple.
I do hope this is for real and that they will be truly happy.
