Will they be doing more appearances like this one--is there a calendar where she is listed as accompanying Harry? Just curious.

A really good article to read ahead of tomorrow's visit which is similar to what was talked about earlier on this thread.

^at first I'd preferred if she didn't go but now I really want her to go and make a fool of herself with her very fake veneer. Harry they see as a genuine chap, but her, they'll see her a the fake she is. Lets hope Harry has a way to be a good distance away so she'll not hang onto him like a crazy clingy woman like she has when ever she's seen with him. I also hope that she'll wear something ultra expensive as she'll be merchandising her attire. My biggest hope is that the press runs an article from something dumb she's said that'll be derogatory to black people, poor people, gentrification,  anything that'll further tick off the people in Brixton. I'm looking forward to the comments this visit will get.

I did some research and from November 2010 until April 2011 we know Kate accompanied William a couple of times e.g. the Lifeboat naming ceremony but the CC didn't list her but ... the Future Engagements for Harry has him going to be accompanied by Meghan for this event. Whether she will make it into the actual CC is still to be seen but listed in the FE would suggest that she is going to be in the CC months before the wedding.

This looks like another change in the normal fiancee treatment by having her on official duties before the wedding rather than having to wait until after, even if the fiancee was there.

HM is really changing the protocols now it seems - modernising the monarchy as per the wishes and desires of her grandsons. Maybe we will even see no title for Harry but another change and Meghan becoming Princess Meghan rather than Princess Henry along with a peerage.

I suppose it is not a bad move for the BRF to put MM there given she's engaged and part black. If they hadn't would people there have complained. I am not sure. I am sure that MM is aware of the bad press so she will be on very good behavior and dress appropriately for this. If she doesn't, then she is a real fool and Harry a worse one.

Any, and I don’t care where it is, disadvantaged or struggling minority community will sniff out a pr-driven visit.  The question will always be, “What difference does this really make to us?”.  It’s a really tough effort for an off the charts privileged group like the BRF to sell genuinely. 

It’ll be more like the carnival comes for a few hours.  Long-term change doesn’t come via a group who have no political power.  It usually serves to make the visitor look better rather than real boots on the ground solution makers.

To me, the BRF shouldn’t do this.  It’s an awkward and borderline insulting fit.

For several years now one of the key areas in Harry's charity work (both in and out of the Royal Foundation) has concentrated on vulnerable young people from disadvantaged areas in Great Britain, through, sport, troubled youth,  mentoring programmes and giving young people skill sets for their future.

Harry has been seen in the past visiting boxing areas, sports fields, job training sites and other arenas involving youth.  His visits bring publicity to some forgotten areas. These programmes are for both black and white youths and any other ethnicity. Reprezent Radio is a radio station run by young people for (mainly) the youth in the area. As such it fits perfectly into the demographic Harry has been involved with for a long time.

^Awareness is always a good thing.  Always.  For the people living in these areas and the government as a whole, however, there is no lack of awareness.  That is saturated to flood stage levels now. 

What is required at this point is results and for someone in a very high tax bracket, a quasi-celebrity, to visit or talk to people who live in these communities always comes off as a pr stunt.  I guarantee that all that will be showcased here is what MM wears or how they look.  That's always the case but even more so now that they've taken their, let's face it, token minority to a minority group.  They don't want to hear how tough either of them have had it because it's not true.  Where's the relatability factor?  It's non-existent.

What measurable results can the BRF point to and claim that have really altered the living conditions for these communities?  The better way to go is for a real use of any monarchy Foundation or Trust to provide monies for after-school programs and youth activities that last, higher ed scholarships, etc.  Things that are tangible and serve the people directly.  Preachy, "we care for 30 minutes" visits don't really cut it.

That's if their commitment is to the long term benefits rather than the short term image enhancement which this event, like so many others, seems to be.

When Harry served in the Army he didn't just serve with the elite but mixed with ordinary soldiers as well. I don't think any of the people who have met him have complained about his relatibility factor. Similarly, whatever you think about MM she wasn't born into an immensely wealthy family. She has a mother who is a social worker and Meghan participated through her school in helping out at soup kitchens when young.

No member of the Royal family just visits places connected with the charities they are patrons of and support for half an hour and then walks away from it. They are all involved in publicising their causes, and raising funds, not just in the particular locales involved but nationally, and sometimes internationally. They help with fundraising events (such as William and Harry's polo events which have raised millions) holding dinners which wealthy donors attend etc.

The Royal Foundation of the Cambridges and Prince Harry is an umbrella organisation that helps with donations for the charities under their banner specifically so that these organisation can organise things like work training and after school projects and help with scholarships and mentoring programmes.

I'm not posting the report on last year's big grant given by the Foundation which was to do with Heads Together, but the year before,  2016 when grants were given out for various programmes. The military (not just Invictus, but Service widows and families)  are helped, conservation and youth are the three focus areas of the Foundation with mental health as well.

Harry is the second son. I don't think the Queen will remove titles he was born with.  I think they will be HRH Prince Henry and HRH Princess Henry. They decidedly should have the titles.  He was born an HRH Prince and he will stay one. It is not like a Peter Phillips or Zara Phillips Scenario. I also think Harry will get a Dukedom. I don't think HM will change protocol that way. It would be in effect a demotion if he gets no title. Even Edward her youngest got a title. And Meghan should get all the titles and styles of her future husband.

Modernizing the monarchy and mentions in the CC: the Brits are certainly the most oldfashioned of all of them (in Europe) and modernization is needed, but they have much bigger and more pressing issues than mentions in the CC before one becomes an official member of the family. I am against that, and besides, at this point all the "changes" seem more like catering and pandering to a certain someone (and avoidning a scandal and name-throwing at the Winds), than changes in favour of moderinzation.

#PrinceHarry and #MeghanMarkle will undertake their first engagement of the year today - and their second as a couple - when they visit @ReprezentRadio in Brixton, which gave @Stormzy1 his first break and has a fantastic training/mentoring programme for young people.

But don’t get your hopes up about #harryandmeghan being on air on @ReprezentRadio today. There are no plans for that, apparently. Asked what might appeal to #Meghan today, I was told: ‘By coincidence 60 per cent of our intake are women. They are strong and confident’

Some excitement among assembled reporters that Meghan Markle is wearing an @marksandspencer sweater. I hope they’ve got their store stock ready for the frenzy https://t.co/yxqeAhaE2n

To me they are too matchy-matchy and the grey is too much, washes esp Harry out.
Along with Nott this is her best look so far, no flashing or otherwise inappropriate or disastrous..

I got a giggle out of her walking ahead of Harry, shaking hands first and just letting him bask in her shadow.  Ha!

'Harry and Meghan, Brixton loves you!' Royal couple put on touching display as they hold hands to visit underground radio station which made grime star Stormzy famous

    Prince Harry and Meghan Markle undertaking their first engagement of the year and their second as a couple
    Pair are at the studios of 24-hour underground music station Reprezent 107.3 FM in Brixton, south London
    Approached station's founder before Christmas asking if they could go along and meet staff and volunteers

^ In contrast to that she also gives the fake-shy-girl and fake-humility show as well.
"Awwwww you guuuuys!!"

Ugh.  She is awful.  Hair is awful.  Flashing her ring is awful.  Her three rings on her right hand are awful.  Her coyness is awful, and she's so very much too old for that kind of coyness.   Her looking at the camera and soaking in the attention is awful.  Her hanging onto Harry is awful.

A feminist?   Meggles' motto is:   "I got my rich, connected man.  Too bad for the rest of you girls.   Hey, I'll make some speeches for you."
