There are lengthy residency requirements involved. Yes, Meghan was going through the process, but it takes a number of years to obtain UK citizenship, which also requires living there primarily for a period of time. That appears to be something which isn't going to happen at this point. No loss either, btw. Who would want to become citizen of a country that harbors in some quarters such rabid, racist attitudes and press coverage toward them! I'm not talking about the lovely down-to-earth people in Britain who kindly supported Meghan and Harry, and who enthusiastically came out to greet them during community visits and at their memorable wedding.So Meghan never became a UK citizen?
Yep, as I said earlier. Zoom is the current reality for many groups, organizations, and families. There are so many figure skating Zoom chats taking place now, which has been great to see in view of the absence of live, competitive skating.Zoom. I get quite a few requests to attend public speaking engagements over zoom.

The excerpts just seem to be repeating/confirming tabloid stories about trifling tiffs. Lol like the kind of stuff that extremely wealthy people who have nothing better to do squabble about. Tiaras, shopping trips, bunches of flowersI think the book is doing them much more harm than good. From the parts serialised in the papers it just makes them sound even worse, didn’t think that was possible but it really does
They have denied direct involvement, leaving open the question of what other kind of involvement they may have had. I have read that they declined interviews with the authors, so they must have known about the project. They don't seem to have asked their friends or acquaintances to follow their example.Harry/Meghan have expressly denied involvement in the book. Whether that is true is another question.
LOL. Who said that M&H have any intention of or desire to 'resume royal duties?' From all the continuing stories in the tabloid media, apparently some rabid royal reporters and sentimental, out-of-touch royalists and needy photographers would like to see 'just Harry' return to the fold. But the media's ongoing onslaught against M&H is a funny way of trying to get them to return. I don't see it happening. Down the road, after a lot of water passes under the bridge, perhaps Charles might broker an occasional return by at least Harry to fulfill some public functions on a part-time basis, but that's a big if. Plus, Charles would have to grow a backbone and clean house of the worst, old-fashioned, interfering 'grey men,' in addition to centralizing royal firm operations and somehow managing to keep overly image-conscious, petty, temperamental Wills contained in a designated lane.The book appears to make it more difficult for them not only to resume royal duties at the end of their year away from them, but also to get on with their intended alternative, running their own foundation. Who would contribute to a charity run by a couple of petty family castoffs?
I thought they did live together before they got engaged. Maybe not for long, but I don't think he had proposed to her before she moved in. IIRC Meghan said that Harry proposed to her when she was cooking a chicken dinner in "their" kitchen.The book just seems to indicate that if Harry and Meghan had lived together for a while in the UK before getting engaged then a lot of the culture clash and different points of view could have been worked though before everything was locked in.
I think this book actually says they got engaged two months earlier than that in Botswana. So I think that a priority was placed on speed.Meghan said that Harry proposed to her when she was cooking a chicken dinner in "their" kitchen.
There's this:Has anyone read the book? Could they summarize a few points so we don't have to?
This doesn't ring true to me. Even if Harry doesn't have direct access to the Queen (really?), his father surely does. And yet, the authors would lead us to believe that the Duke and Duchess didn't bother asking him for help.According to the book, it was known within the palace walls that Harry and Meghan wanted changes to their royal status and had sought discussions with the Queen prior to a six-week trip to Canada at the end of last year.
It says they made the final decision while in Canada and again sought a meeting with Harry’s grandmother, but were told she would not be available until the end of January 2020. The announcement, the authors claim, came on 8 January because the couple got wind that a story was due to break in the UK press.
I think an argument can even be made that he was right. While this isn't specifically about getting to know Meghan, if they had taken it a little slower, they might have had a smoother exit à la Madeleine and her husband. It sounds like it would have been preferrable for everyone involved.If Harry's issues with his brother stem from William suggesting that he take his time getting to know Meghan, that strikes me as perfectly reasonable advice from one sibling to another - especially given that they both know what it means to marry into the BRF and have the example of their parents who did marry quickly (albeit at a younger age). That's the main reason that's been consistently reported, and it doesn't paint William as petty, image conscious or temperamental
