The Prince and his girlfriend made a public appearance on Monday, September 25, at a wheelchair tennis match as part of the Invictus Games in Toronto, Canada.
The public appearance of the couple at this edition of the Invictus Games formalized their relationship.
In addition, the prince now openly talks about his girlfriend of 14 months. On Wednesday, the Queen’s grandson met a team of cyclists.
One of them, a former US Air Force Master Sergeant, dared to talk about the subject that fascinates fans of the royal family.
“I asked him how his girlfriend was enjoying it and he said, ‘She loves it, she’s loving the games,’ which is awesome,” Burnett told People magazine.
The Invictus Games are a sports competition for wounded and disabled soldiers and war veterans, created in 2014 by Prince Harry.
According to Zara Phillips’ husband, the actress is now ready to enter the British royal family.
Mike Tindall, the husband of Prince Harry’s cousin Zara Phillips, recently talked about Meghan Markle in an interview with Sunday People.
“It comes with a lot of history and the family that it is. It’s obviously nerve-racking,” he told the publication. “But she has been under enough scrutiny and pressure in her day-to-day life so I’m sure she will get through it. She will be fine.”
The sportsman also had to integrate into the royal family years ago and, therefore, knows what he is talking about. He is a professional rugby player and fell in love with Queen Elizabeth’s granddaughter.
“As long as they are both happy that’s all that you can ask for. She’ll do absolutely fine,” he concluded.
Despite being a long-distance relationship, Harry and Meghan seem to make it work just fine since the two are together since May 2016.
Rumors are swirling lately that an engagement is not far away.
Rumors of a marriage proposal won’t cease until the news is official.
The Sun reports that the couple has left London for a stay in Africa for a memorable safari.
The media is also speculating that during this romantic journey the royal, 32, could pop the question to the actress, who turned 36 on August 4.
Harry has chosen Africa as a destination for a romantic holiday because he has worked extensively with local associations working for the protection of endangered species and he hopes to share his passion with Meghan.
“Harry has been planning this holiday for a long time,” a source cited by the publication says. “He’s made the trip incredibly romantic. They’ll go on boats across the lake, walk in the bush at dawn and camp under the stars. Who knows what will happen when they’re watching a sensational African sunset together? Maybe he’ll get down on one knee. Harry regards Africa as his spiritual home and has often talked of how he can get away from it all there.”
The insider adds: “Obviously he wants to show Meghan what an amazing place it is and create new memories together. Harry’s done a lot of conservation work in Africa with endangered elephants and black rhinos and he’ll show them to the woman he wants to marry.”
Photos of the two on the airport tarmac showed that they were visibly happier than ever.
“It’s fitting that the spectacular safari started on her birthday — what a way to impress a girl! He’ll make this a holiday she’ll never forget and perhaps she’ll come back with a ring on her finger,” the source added.
Prince William chose Africa too when he decided to ask Kate Middleton to marry him in October 2010.
The actress has been in London since the beginning of the week and is visiting Harry at Kensington Palace.
But in public the two are hardly visible. Meghan and Harry prefer to spend time together in a cozy home.
According to a source cited by E! News the lovebirds have been “total homebodies” since she arrived at the palace.
“They’ve just been chilling at home,” the source said. “There’s always someone watching or trying to get pics when they go out that they’re pretty happy just staying in and doing nothing. They like to cook, watch movies and that kind of thing.”
The same insider revealed that the pair watched Disney’s Moana together the last time Meghan was at the palace.
The duo is rarely seen in public together but they did make an official appearance as a couple at Pippa’s wedding to James Matthews in May.
The couple met last summer, while the Prince was on a tour to promote the Invictus Games in Canada.
Last weekend, to mark the 100th episode of the Suits series, in which Meghan plays the lawyer Rachel Zane, the 35-year-old and the rest of the cast were the ATX Television Festival in Austin, Texas.
The actors performed a live reading of the Suits pilot episode and then opened up the floor for questions from the audience.
And when asked if she hoped to marry Prince Harry the 35-year-old actress did not have an answer to the question. Instead she smiled and said absolutely nothing.
Meghan didn’t escape being teased by fellow cast members as her co-star, Rick Hoffman, suggested she read her part of the script in a British accent.
Last month the couple could be seen together at Pippa Middleton’s wedding to James Matthews.
The latest rumors claim that Princess Diana’s son is totally enamored and is likely to pop the question in the near future.
According to sources cited by Star magazine, the prince has received Queen Elizabeth’s permission to propose to the Suits actress. The insider even spoke of an “imminent engagement.”
“The way it’s going, the engagement will probably happen this year,” a source told the publication. [via Daily Express] “Harry has got approval from the queen to propose to Meghan. He’s already had those conversations with Her Majesty. An engagement is imminent.”
The Queen’s blessing would put an end to weeks of uncertainty. The American actress was previously married to producer Trevor Engleson but they divorced in 2014.
A sign that the royal family has accepted their relationship was the fact that Meghan Markle received an invitation to Pippa Middleton’s wedding.
The 35-year-old actress became known for her role in the series Suits, where she has been playing the role of an assistant in a law firm since 2011.
Invited on the set of the Wendy Williams Show for the promotion of her latest film, Priyanka Chopra discussed her relationship with Meghan Markle.
“Here’s the big deal, here’s the big deal,” Wendy Williams said. “You’re friends with Meghan Markle.”
“Right…” Priyanka replied.
“Prince Harry’s girlfriend!” Williams added.
But when the host introduced Markle as Prince Harry’s girlfriend, the actress felt the need to highlight her friend’s merits.
“Also, Meghan Markle: actress, Suits, her achievements. Just saying,” the Quantico star said.
Priyanka then openly spoke of the relationship between Meghan and Prince Harry and gave her full consent to the possible marriage between the two.
“I don’t know. I hope so! She seems happy,” she said. “I think they look great together.”
“No pressure,” she said. “High profile relationships are so stressful anyway, so as a friend I wouldn’t like to add on that at all.”
Priyanka Chopra is a superstar in Bollywood and now she has made a name for herself in the USA with her series “Quantico” and the film “Baywatch”.
The couple will definitely draw attention at Pippa Middleton’s nuptials but their presence will be discreet.
Kate Middleton’s younger sister is set to say “I do” to her partner, businessman James Matthews, on May 20, at St Mark’s Little Church in Englefield.
The event may also be an opportunity for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle to formalize their relationship by making an official appearance as a couple.
According to People magazine, the Suits actress will be able to attend the reception, but not the ceremony.
Myka Meier, founder and director of Beaumont Etiquette, explained to the publication that unmarried couples shouldn’t attend religious wedding ceremonies.
In addition, the invitations were launched last fall, when the relationship between Prince Harry and Meghan Markle was in its infancy.
“I would not be surprised if Prince Harry was not given a plus one, as the wedding guest list would have most likely been made in fall of last year when Prince Harry’s relationship with Meghan was not as public,” Meier said. “I typically recommend if someone is married, engaged, considers themselves to have a serious significant other, or is traveling in for the wedding, they should receive a plus one. Pending how intimate Pippa wants to keep her wedding, she may very well follow the ‘no ring, no bring’ rule.”
