Prince Harry & Meghan Markle  engagement

Prince Harry's fiancée Meghan Markle is still in Los Angeles -- 5,400 miles away from her prince charming. Oddly, Meghan hopped a flight to Los Angeles a day after she made her first public appearance on Harry's arm since they announced their unlikely engagement.

Tongues were wagging in London when Meghan jetted to L.A. to visit her mom, Doria Ragland, for two weeks. Many Brits say it is highly inappropriate for a newly-engaged woman to suddenly abandon her fiancé and fly to another continent 5,000 miles away.

Brits say Meghan tricked poor lovestruck Harry into proposing to her by promising she would move to London. She even shipped one of her rescue dogs to London just to show him she was serious.

Relationship experts say women like Meghan, who are products of divorced parents, are damaged goods who show more ambivalence and tend to keep their significant others at arms length.

Prince Harry & Meghan Markle  engagement

The 36-year-old American actress hardly saw Prince Harry in the year that they dated.

She lived in Toronto and they saw each other a handful of times in between his royal duties in London.

She also lived apart from her first husband, Trevor Engelson, before dumping him for a celebrity chef in Toronto.

But Prince Harry isn't in need of companionship while she's away. He invited his ex-girlfriend Cressida Bonas to a holiday concert at St. Luke's Church in London on Tuesday.

A source tells E! News that both Harry and Meghan are "big texters" and that Harry loves to use an emoji or gif. They also FaceTime "every day when they're apart" and FaceTime is said to have "played a huge role in their relationship."

The source says Meghan will fly back to London in time for Christmas -- which is 3 weeks away.

Meghan's trip triggered intense debate on with some readers arguing that she had every right to "take sone free time". But others noted that she could have flown her mom to London for a visit.

    May he rest in peace, but can someone get me a Prince eyeroll gif or meme? Thank you. Cause I'm over this couple already.

  • Dahl

    She knows what the she’s in store for, and wants to take this last bit of free time before she’s fully indoctrinated...

  • MsPam

    Yes she needs a break because I was reading about when she gets married to Prince Harry, the article talked about who she has to bow down to, the Queen, Kate and Prince Andrew’s daughters! Y’all want a black princess in palace, she’s going to be bent over most of the time! Power to the people!??

    It seems as if the Brits know Meagan and Harry personally since they have such intense opinions about their relationship. Perhaps they need to focus on their own relationships instead of worrying about them. I have no dog in the fight as to whether or not they get married, but I think people are running their mouths hoping for a break up.

    Whether she travels a week or 10 weeks, that's between them. We all have opinions, but some people seem like they are invested way too much. People are always going to have something to say, whether positive or negative, so I say they need to do them. If it works or doesn't we'll still be going on with our lives.

  • nyla00

    We already had a black King and Queen. Barack and Michelle??. Therefore, we can move on.

  • ShelbyMoore

  • Blue

  • Rayne

    She's spending 2-3 weeks with her Mom because she is spending christmas and new years with the royals. It's her Mother for goodness sake and they're probably close. She will be spending a lot of time with Harry and his family obviously. Her fiance understands so idk why eveyone else is having a hard time with it.

  • starbright9449

    Lol Sandra usually puts her own input as something other people are saying.

  • starbright9449

    People were elated over any little news about prince Will and princess Kate. I'm talking hyped for MONTHS. I was tired from the first week. Now here we have a half black chick and the whites don't care for her and black are over her. Everyone loves Harry cause he's "down to earth" but insert his fiancee and its mostly negative comments. I know she's not really black but lets not pull down each other.

  • Julia Lyons

    You've noticed that as well.

  • sunni_daze

    So being birth from and raised by a black woman, makes her un-black

  • sunni_daze

    Well the Brits can think what they want, she's American and clearly we move different over here.

  • Readytochokemothernatureout

    Congrats to them.

  • TheOwley

    The demonization of Meghan is in full mode. The Brits absolutely hate royalty and this union is an affront to them. Just read the comments sections and the veiled racism they display.

  • Shawty

    Another story about this chick...sheesh

  • Jen_no_juice

    Folks need to mind they business that's all just mind yo business *Fresh Prince voice*

  • WutizaGRANNY!

    She has to go through Charm school. to learn royal etiquette before they will allow her to come through the front door. This is not a joke. There are certain things a non royal has to be taught before fully engaging in the royal realm. They deal with dignitaries, other royal women.. and she has a lil sistah in her so when one of those snooty born in royalty chicks say some slick shyt she won't tilt their crown to the left..

  • Desiree Edwards

    I guess she didn't like the meager accommodations! lol!

  • Blue

    Bwahahahahaha. Thank you!

  • Blak

    Harry...get out while you can and stop being a laughing stock

  • Quitedeliteful


  • Quitedeliteful

    Really??? I thought they loved their royals. I assumed they'd be against a chick with visible black blood in her, for sure, but (on tv at least) they always seems to be bowing and scraping to the Queen, etc...

  • Quitedeliteful

    Uuhhhh. She really is black....

  • Quitedeliteful


  • ReadingIsFundamental4Real

    Prince Harry doesn't care what the Brit's think of his finance and neither do I. Go Meghan!

  • Ozad

    Those Brits can't stand the fact that the Prince that has the most swag picked a black girl to going to see a lot more criticisms leading up to the marriage

  • Ozad

    that's what it is

  • Malcom Flex

    Are you kidding? She's done all that.

  • VoiceOfReasonAndLogic

    Everyone else = Sandra.

  • KcoolMuziq

    This couple turns me on. Actually they almost dethrone Will & Jada and Gabby & Dwayne as my favorite couple.

  • starbright9449

    To me she's mixed.

  • starbright9449

    Depends if the Dad is black or not. Otherwise she's mixed. Y'all stay claiming people who aren't even claiming their own blackness.

  • TheOwley

    They love Queen Elizabeth. The rest they consider parasites. I saw an interview by John Oliver who was quite contemptuous about them and said Americans are more interested in the pomp and circumstance of the royals. They prefer a republic and abolition of the monarchy. Read the comments section to get a flavor of that.

  • davine puddin

    I always put my husband first.

  • davine puddin

    Team Princess Grace!

  • Quitedeliteful

    Thanks... Ima look this up...

  • Quitedeliteful

    Yes she is mixed. I consider her to be really black and really white ... In this case one doesn't trump the other....

  • TheOwley

    Also Meghan is getting dragged on our end at the idea that an American has to curtsey to them, as in we went to war not to have to do that. The whole thing is curious to me. Look up DM article about who she has to curtsey.

  • Malcom Flex

    Megan played game like a pro don't hate congratulate she's truly one in a BILLION that's why becky and nem so salty this dude was the most chase royal in the world!! Props her black mama for teaching her how to do it.

  • Malcom Flex

    Petty. That man crazy about her. She got him hooked.

  • sunni_daze

    Miss me. In this day and age it don't matter what the father is, if he isn't in the home raising and helping. And from the reports ot was all her BLACK momma.



  • Malcom Flex

    The racism isn't veiled.

  • TheOwley

    They say things like the royal family is ruined by calling her a Wallis Simpson and a divorcee, as if Camilla was a virgin saint before Charles. An American, gold digger, fame hunter, poor family background, she's too old, and on and on but I never read because she's black. I've also read comments like the "whiter than white royals are ruined" if that isn't code, I don't know what is. They imply things, I infer it. I can't assume others see it as I do.
