Prince Harry and Meghan Markle haven’t been able to stay apart from each other for too long.
The hot new couple have been meeting at every chance they get and for the last few months, either Harry has met 35-year-old Meghan in Toronto, or she has visited him at his place in Kensington Palace.
They recently spent a romantic week together and were pictured buying a Christmas tree together in Battersea Park, south London.
The couple were also pictured together for the first time in the West End as they went to see the The Curious Incident Of The Dog In The Night Time.
Harry was said to be concerned that grandma Queen Elizabeth II might not like her, BUT the Queen has already given her approval of the “Suits” actress.
It was recently reported that she is supportive of Harry and has given her blessings for her grandson to marry Meghan.
Meghan’s humanitarian initiatives have impressed the Queen and is said to be pleased to see Harry so happy.
The couple actually met at a charity event and have been inseparable ever since.
William Hill have even said that the red hot favourites to tie the knot in 2017 are Harry and Meghan. The odds are 6/1.
The betting agency’s spokesman Rupert Adams said: “Everyone loves a Royal wedding but with Prince Harry you are just as likely to get a wedding on the beach as you are a full cathedral number.”
Ooh, can you imagine a beach wedding with these two?
Liam and Cheryl are at 6/4 and Orlando Bloom and Katy Perry are 8/1.
Harry, 32, also apparently broke some Palace protocol so he could get to see Meghan. After his 14-day tour, he didn’t return home like he was supposed to do. Instead, the loved-up Royal made a 1,700-mile detour to visit Meghan in Toronto for a few days.
She wasn’t invited to spend Christmas Day with the Royal family, but Harry was said to be given special permission to leave the gathering early to spend some quality time with his other half and to ring in New Year with her too.
Last month, he released a statement about how he has struggled with the extra media attention on him and Meghan. It came as a bit of a shock because it was unlike him to be so blunt and honest!
It read: “Since he was young, Prince Harry has been very aware of the warmth that has been extended to him by members of the public. He feels lucky to have so many people supporting him and knows what a fortunate and privileged life he leads.
“He is also aware that there is significant curiosity about his private life. He has never been comfortable with this, but he has tried to develop a thick skin about the level of media interest that comes with it.
“He has rarely taken formal action on the very regular publication of fictional stories that are written about him and he has worked hard to develop a professional relationship with the media, focused on his work and the issues he cares about.
“But the past week has seen a line crossed. His girlfriend, Meghan Markle, has been subject to a wave of abuse and harassment.
“Some of this has been very public – the smear on the front page of a national newspaper; the racial undertones of comment pieces; and the outright sexism and racism of social media trolls and web article comments.
“Some of it has been hidden from the public – the nightly legal battles to keep defamatory stories out of papers; her mother having to struggle past photographers in order to get to her front door; the attempts of reporters and photographers to gain illegal entry to her home and the calls to police that followed; the substantial bribes offered by papers to her ex-boyfriend; the bombardment of nearly every friend, co-worker, and loved one in her life.
“Prince Harry is worried about Ms. Markle’s safety and is deeply disappointed that he has not been able to protect her. It is not right that a few months into a relationship with him that Ms. Markle should be subjected to such a storm.
“He knows commentators will say this is ‘the price she has to pay’ and that ‘this is all part of the game’. He strongly disagrees. This is not a game – it is her life and his.
“He has asked for this statement to be issued in the hopes that those in the press who have been driving this story can pause and reflect before any further damage is done.
“He knows that it is unusual to issue a statement like this, but hopes that fair-minded people will understand why he has felt it necessary to speak publicly.”
Harry is certainly protective of his new bird, we can hear those wedding bells ringing…
