Meghan Markle Rocks Sexy Santa Outfit, Reminds Us Prince Harry Is a Lucky Man

Before Meghan Markle met Prince Harry and became future royalty, she was just another Los Angeles-based model and actress with dreams of success and stardom.

Sure, she enjoyed some pre-Harry success and lived out every young girl’s dream of starring in a USA Network legal drama, but like so many others struggling to make it in Hollywood, Meghan had to pay her dues.

And in her case, that meant holding a briefcase and pretending to be amused by Howie Mandel.

Fortunately, Deal or No Deal was taken off the air due to a government probe into the inhumane demands of its producers.

Or it was canceled because everyone got sick of watching a super-elaborate version of “guess how many fingers I’m holding behind my back.”

We forget which.

Whatever the case (pun fully intended), there’s been a resurgence of interest in the show now that one of its former models is soon to become a royal.

And this week, the retroactive ogling has taken on a seasonal tone, thanks to this photo of Meghan wearing a sexy Santa outfit.

Unlike the other girls, Meghan seems to be genuinely enjoying Howie’s antics in this pic, which is a testament to her acting ability.

It’s also a reminder that Meghan is the opposite of a stuffy royal, which is probably exactly why Harry was drawn to her.

And of course, like the now-famous photo of her in college, this pic reminds us that Meghan hasn’t aged, and presumably will never age.

That’s also a pretty nice bonus for ya boy Harold.

In a way, we suppose being a briefcase girl on Deal or No Deal is pretty good preparatin for life as a royal.

You have to spend a lot of time standing around and pretending you’re not bored out of your mind.

You have to feign joy whenever the peasants get all excited.

And of course, you have to await the deaths of those more powerful than yourself, so that you can move up the briefcase girl line of succession.

We’re pretty sure that’s how it works.

The important thing is, Meghan proved that the always-questionable sexy Santa get-up can work under certain circumstances, and for that, we thank her.

Meghan Markle’s Father Speaks Out: Does He Approve of Prince Harry?

Think you’re happy that Meghan Markle is engaged to Prince Harry?

You should hear what Meghan Markle’s father has to say about it!

No, really, you should. Scroll down to find out what he just said…

Back on November 27, after Clarence House confirmed that the actress and the Royal Stud Muffin had agreed to marry, Markle’s parent did issue the following statement:

“We are incredibly happy for Meghan and Harry. Our daughter has always been a kind and loving person. To see her union with Harry, who shares the same qualities, is a source of great joy for us as parents,”

Thomas Markle and Doria Ragland, who are divorced, added at the time:

“We wish them a lifetime of happiness and are very excited for their future together.” 

Thomas, however, is not spotted out in public very often.

He’s been described by some outlets as a “reclusive” individual who lives  a quiet life in Mexico.

But The Daily Mirror tracked him down in Rosarito Beach (where he was purchasing a four-pack of beer and cigarettes, the newspaper notes) and asked if he’ll be at St. George’s Chapel in Windsor Castle to give away his daughter.

Thomas “beamed,” the publication writes, told the reporter:

“Yes. I’d love to.”

Markle and Harry have confirmed the aforementioned wedding location, along with their plans to exchange vows in May of next year.

(Many insiders, meanwhile, think Markle will then announce her pregnancy by next Christmas. But that’s pure speculation at the moment.)

“I’m very pleased,” the 73-year-old dad added. “I’m delighted.”

Markle’s parents have been indirectly in the news a bit because Thomas is white, while Doria is African-American.

Because people often suck, there’s been debate over Markle’s heritage and some unfortunate harassment she’s suffered as a result.

As for plans more immediate than her nuptials, a source explains to Us Weekly how Meghan will celebrate her first Christmas season as the fiancee of a Royal.

After celebrating Christmas Eve at Queen Elizabeth II’s Sandringham House Harry and his bride-to-be will join Prince William and Kate Middleton at their nearby Anmer Hall home in Norfolk, England.

“They’ll be William and Kate’s guests and travel back and forth with them,” the insider says.

Doesn’t sound too shabby at all, does it?

On December 25 itself, the quartet will be served a traditional English breakfast… attend a mandatory 11 a.m. service at St. Mary Magdalene Church… and then chow down on a a lunch featuring two roast turkeys.

That’s some specific, delicious detail right there!

We’ll let you know more about Harry and Markle’s holiday and wedding plans when further news breaks.

Meghan Markle & Prince Harry: Is their PDA Breaking Royal Rules?

Stories like Meghan Markle’s engagement to Prince Harry aren’t just wonderful news — they’re a welcome distraction to many from the endless horror show that is 2017’s political news.

But there’s something about their engagement that stands out among other royal engagements, and it isn’t Meghan’s race or nationality or status as a divorcee.

And, though it’s a break from tradition, it’s actually incredibly sweet.

People have noticed that MegMar and Prince Harry are affectionate in public. They hold hands.

You know which royal couple we basically never see holding hands?

William and Kate. And, for that matter, Elizabeth and Phillip show an even greater degree of restraint.

This isn’t a Duggar fertility cult scenario where royal couples are restricted to side-hugs or anything like that. 

But there is a tradition of showing a “stiff upper liff” and displaying a degree of severity when you’re a member of the British Royal Family.

To a lesser degree, British culture is relatively reserved compared to US culture when it comes to emotional displays.

In both cultures, hand-holding is typically reserved for children and for romantic couples.

(In most places, hand-holding between adults is reserved for straight couples in particular, as there are many places where same-sex couples remain at risk of random acts of violence)

And, in appearance after appearance, Harry and Meghan seem to be almost physically inseparable.

Royal etiquette expert Myka Meier explains to People the significance of their public displays of affection.

“While Prince Harry and Meghan holding hands is atypical for royal engagements, it is a seemingly welcomed gesture to show unity and celebration of their engagement period.”

That’s a polite way of saying that perhaps Meghan Markle’s American-ness is rubbing off on Harry.

“There is no protocol that says they can not show affection on official engagements, and this gesture makes them relatable and lovable to the public.”

Relatable is a good word, there.

“Meghan and Prince Harry holding hands at a royal engagement is a refreshingly modern approach to their new role both as a couple and as representatives of the royal family.”

Many people feel that, just as British taxpayers should not be funding the royal lifestyle and security, those born to royal families should not have their entire lives predetermined by their birth.

Basically, Prince Harry holding hands is a welcome sign that the times are changing.

“It is rare to see royal couples holding hands on official outings.”

Yep.

(Notice that William and Kate are friendly and cordial, but stand apart during most public appearances. Honestly, we’d never thought much of it until the contrast was pointed out, but now it’s hard to not notice)

The royal etiquette expert (we wonder how one becomes qualified for that and also how useful it is in real life, but we all have skills that you could say that about) continues:

“While we are much less likely to see The Duke and Duchess holding hands in public, we often see Prince Charles and The Duchess of Cornwall holding hands.”

So Harry takes after his father, in that respect.

“It’s all simply a matter of preference for each couple and is also likely dependent on the nature of the event they are attending.”

That makes sense. Most of us let the event that we’re attending tell us how to dress and how much to drink, not whether we hold hands. 

But most of us aren’t in line to become monarchs.

“A more serious engagement would warrant a more serious level of professionalism, which each royal is sure to follow.”

Sure.

Compared to the resurfacing of Meghan Markle’s “racy” pics or to the fact that she’s (gasp!) been divorced, a little hand-holding between engaged adults is not a big deal.

It is, however, a deviation from the norms and something that people are going to talk about.

In fact, as the royal wedding date approaches, all eyes will remain on Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. And you can bet that people are going to find more things on which to comment.

Remember that Harry isn’t just a royal — he’s handsome and considered so very desirable that there was once a reality competition series whose premise was that the winner would ostensibly marry him.

And Meghan Markle is a biracial, divorced, American actress. While none of those are bad things, they are different.

“Change” and “progress” aren’t usually words that people associate with monarchies. So people are going to take note when the Royals do things differently.
