Prince Harry Gifts Meghan Markle With a Gold Band, Sadly It's Not an Engagement Ring

But that could be next!

He put a ring on it! Well, sort of. Over the weekend, Meghan Markle was spotted wearing a gold band, gifted from beau Prince Harry. We hate to let you down, though, as the ring wasn't on her wedding finger, but her thumb. Could this be the ring before THE ring?

Multiple sources told the Daily Mail that the actress only takes off the ring, which was given to her almost two months ago, when she's filming scenes for show Suits, but because the ring fits a little loose, "she's always careful not to lose sight of it."

The band is just the first of many gifts the royal has given his lady love. According to the entertainment source, he's surprised Markle with a Cartier Love bracelet, and a Maya Brenner necklace engraved with the initials "H" and "M." "Meghan feels close to Harry when she wears jewelry from him and he is very keen on symbolic gestures."

So, should we expect another royal wedding? All signs are currently pointing to yes. In mid-May, it was reported that the Prince requested permission to marry the brunette beauty from Queen Elizabeth II (he has her blessing!). "Harry has got approval from the queen to propose to Meghan," a source previously revealed to Star. "He’s already had those conversations with Her Majesty. An engagement is imminent."

If that doesn't convince you, during Pippa Middleton's wedding, the royal couldn't keep his eye off of Markle, and one guest revealed he's head over heels for the actress. “He wants her to acclimatize to it all,” Ingrid Seward told People. “It’s such a whole different world to move into—there’s so much to get used to. He’s really in love with her, but wants to give it his best crack.”

And last but not least, while attending the ATX Television Festival earlier this month, Markle smiled from ear-to-ear when asked if she'd marry her royal beau. It's not really a response, but we'll take that as a yes!

Here's hoping!
