Will Prince Harry and Meghan Markle get engaged in 2017? Their relationship continues to get serious as reports say the prince has met the Suits actress’ dad.
A new unconfirmed report claims that Prince Harry, 32, met with Thomas Markle Sr. six months ago, before news of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s relationship broke. They supposedly met during one of Prince Harry’s trips to Toronto.
“My dad knew about [the relationship] from the start. He first met Prince Harry about six months ago out in Toronto. He goes once every couple of months,” Markle’s half-brother Thomas Markle Jr. reportedly told Mail Online. “He’s pretty happy about Harry and he’s extremely proud of her. They have an amazing relationship, they’re very close and they always have been.” He added that he’s happy for his half-sister.
Meghan Markle, 35, has also met some of the royal family, including Prince Charles, Prince William and Kate Middleton. “William met Meghan,” a source told Us in November. “They got on fabulously. I’m sure Harry had been looking forward to introducing his girlfriend.”
Even the Queen reportedly approves of Prince Harry's new romance. Sources told Us that Elizabeth is “fully supportive” and is “delighted to see Harry in a loving relationship.”
Meeting the family is a serious step in the relationship. So does this mean that Prince Harry will propose soon? Meghan Markle and Prince Harry first met in May when she was filming Suits in Toronto and Prince Harry was working on the Invictus Games.
And things got serious fast. They’ve been seen wearing matching bracelets. Markle also wore an “M” and “H” necklace and visited London, while Prince Harry went to see her in Toronto. The couple was also seen Christmas tree shopping and is reportedly planning a trip together. And Prince Harry stood up for his girlfriend when people posted hateful comments about her.
So is an engagement on its way soon? “That is certainly a possibility,” a source previously told People of a possible proposal. “It is certainly one possible outcome. It’s pretty serious, so we will see.”
