  1. There is no way that Meghan is 134 lbs….I would say somewhere between 115-120. As a 5’8″ woman I know how much I weigh when I’m as lean and toned as she is.

  2. Size 40, really? Check her measurements and compare it to a size chart, there is no way she is wearing that size. It has to be 36, which is „small“, not 40, what is called „large“. I am just a few centimeters smaller than her and my weight is 3kg more and I still wear small.

  3. SHE LEFT HUSBAND # 1 …tREVOR HELPED HER CLIMB THE SUCCESS LADDER…. SHE DIDN’T NEED HIM ANYMORE BYE BYE
    HELLO HARRY…PRINCESS FOR AWHILE, DIVORCE AND YOUR MONEY SOON…THEN BACK TO LA…OOOOH SORRY…..BEVERLY HILLS….BYE BYE COMIN’ UP.

  4. She’s 5’7 and weighs 123. That sounds right. UK, USA, Italian& french sizes are all different. She looks amazing. I’m 5’8 & weigh 130 & I’m very thin. Meghan looks great & I’m happy for her new future with prince Harry.

  5. I THINK SHE IS WAY OUT ON A LIMB… DONT THIS ROYALLY ADMIRE ANY PART OF HER.. SHE IS IN BIG TROUBLE… HARRY IS A WILD THING AND THE QUEEN IS JUST LEAVING THIS ALONE.. WILL BE CURIOUS HOW THE FUTURE IS WITH CEREMONIES ETC WITH THIS NEW COUPLE.. THINK IT WILL GO FOR AWHILE BUT LIVING THIS DREAM WILL SOON BECOME A NIGHTMARE.. REMEMBER PRINCESS DI.. AND WHO CAN FORGET THE INFAMOUS FERGIE.. THE QUEEN IS NO FOOL… SHE HAS SEEN IT ALL… WISE OLD GAL!! THIS BIRACIAL THING MUST BE DAUNTING AND HER PREVIOUS MARRIAGE.. BEING AN ACTRESS OMG… WELL, THE QUEEN IS GETTING OLD.. PERHAPS SHE IS EXCEPTING THIS FATE HEAD ON.. BET MEGAN WILL GET TIRED OF SMILING AND THEN SMILING SOME MORE… SHE CANNOT COMPETE WITH KATHERINE.. BUT, ONLY SHE WILL FIGURE THIS OUT… KATHERINE IS FULL OF GRACE AND LOVED BY ALL.. PRINCE WILLS IS A FIND UPSTANDING GENTLEMAN OF THE COURT.. BUT HARRY??? W

  6. WOW! HOW QUICK WE ARE TO JUDGE… I KNOW IT’S A HARD PILL TO SWALLOW THAT THE MOST SORT AFTER PRINCE “HARRY”, WHO CHOOSE HIS BIRACIAL PRINCESS :)… MEGHAN WHO WILL MAKE HISTORY SO MUCH BETTER TO READ IN THE NEXT GENERATION OF KIDS AND THE WORLD! PRINCE HARRY COULD NOT have MADE A WISER CHOICE “MEGHAN MARKLE”. THIS IS NOT A COINCIDENT! THIS IS MENT TO HAPPEN! I LOVE HOW HE LOOKS AT HER… AND THE SAME WITH MEGHAN. I SHOUT OUT ALL OVER THE WORLD… HAIL TO THE QUEEN 🙂

    • It is predicted that Harry will cheat on Meghan just as his father Charles cheated on Diana. Harry has a roaming eye. We can wait and see how this plays out. When Meghan could have married a rich rap star, she chose Harry which doesn’t make a lot of sense since Meghan claims to be a feminist. Now she had to give up her freedom and other accomplishments (popular website, being an actress) for a life of servitude while she wear outrageously expensive outfits flaunting herself in front of poor people and charity workers.

      • Why would she have married a ‘rich Rap star’…? Is it because she’s half Black? You Whiteys are so pathetic and bitter. Lmaooo. She married Prince Harry who CHOSE her…now seethe.

        • I don’t think rap star had to do anything with race. It means if she was marrying for $$; there are a lot of other options that would not involve that kind of sacrifice. Meaning that it is very likely a love match. Calling individuals “whiteys” is offensive and racist. Additionally, there are rappers of all ethnicities and cultural backgrounds. When are we going to stop identifying people by their skin color? People are human beings. Diversity is beautiful like each flower is uniquely so.
