Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are moving fast. Us Weekly Magazine reports that Harry just introduced the Suit’s star to his older brother, Prince William, and he approved. Will they get engaged in the near future?
Markle has already met Harry’s father, Prince Charles, but her recent trip to London featured a meet and greet with Prince William. Not only did Markle impress her boyfriend’s older brother, but he also walked away feeling “very happy for his brother.”
“William met Meghan,” an inside source shared. “They got on fabulously. I’m sure Harry had been looking forward to introducing his girlfriend. Naturally, William is very happy for his brother.”
Markle’s stay in London was a quiet affair. The actress spent most of her time at Kensington Palace with Harry and had some free time in her busy schedule because Suits is currently on break until next year.
“It was a low-key visit,” the insider said.
Fans hoped to catch a glimpse of Harry and Markle during the England vs. South Africa rugby match last weekend. Unfortunately, the actress made her way back to Canada two days before the match.
The couple won’t be apart for long. Harry will finish his tour of the Caribbean in early December and plans to whisk Markle away for a romantic getaway before the holidays.
“It will be a one-week trip,” an insider revealed. “There are just a few details left to finalize.”
Harry’s romance with Markle was a highly-guarded secret until last week. After reports of their romance broke, officials at Kensington Palace confirmed Harry’s relationship with Markle. According to Page Six, Harry also pleaded with fans to stop trolling Markle on social media.
“Prince Harry is worried about Ms. Markle’s safety and is deeply disappointed that he has not been able to protect her,” Jason Knauf, the communications secretary at the palace, wrote. “It is not right that a few months into a relationship with him that Ms. Markle should be subjected to such a storm.”
To make matters worse, Markle’s sister recently called her “shallow.” Despite all the negative press, Harry’s romance with Markle appears stronger than ever. In fact, given Harry’s comments against internet trolls, Markle is starting to feel like a princess.
“It may not seem like they have been together for long, but it’s been very intense,” a friend shared. “They’re super serious and can see a long future together.”
According to Daily Mail, Markle is willing to do whatever it takes to make the relationship work. This includes putting her TV career on hold while they figure out their long distance romance.
The only thing standing in their way is the media coverage of their heated relationship, which just got even more public. According to Mirror, Meghan Markle is already taking precautions to prepare for the added coverage of her life.
“She’s trying to figure out how to scale back what she puts out there about her life, including her social media and her website,” a friend insisted. “If she had to leave all that she’s doing in order for the relationship to work, she would without hesitation.”
The couple began seeing each other back in August and managed to keep things a secret until a few weeks ago. The actress first alluded to her royal dating life when she posted a photo of two bananas spooning on Instagram. She then shared a photo of a jigsaw puzzle and teapot.
“It’s been an absolute fairy tale for Meghan … it’s a very serious relationship and she wants a future with Harry,” the friend continued.
The pair has not been spotted in public since the Kensington Palace announcement. With their schedules clearing up soon, fans can expect a public appearance by the two in the near future.
In the meantime, NY Daily News reports that Harry is hard at work raising awareness of HIV. Harry showed up at a charity in London that helps minorities “accept their diagnosis and live life to the fullest.”
“I don’t want to be here in 10 years talking to you guys and saying we’re making a difference. There’s no reason why we can’t turn this around in two or three years,” he shared. “Not talking about something can actually kill you. People are happy to talk about their youngest child having cancer, that might even kill them, but the other child who has HIV, they don’t talk about that.”
Harry has been active with HIV charities over the past few months. Back in July, he underwent a live test for HIV on social media to promote awareness.
“Thirty years ago it was pretty much a death sentence, but so many people have put blood, sweat, and tears into essentially fixing the problem,” he explained. “For some reason, though, there is a large group of people who don’t know that things have come so far. We have got to do this and people have got to hear it from you, they don’t want to hear it from me.”
