Everyone, take a deep breath! All signs are pointing to the fact that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are set to announce their engagement any minute. (Your Facebook friends aren't the only ones saying "Yes!" during engagement season.) New reports have everyone speculating that this royal couple could announce an engagement as early as Tuesday. Remember, we told you to take a deep breath.
As reported by The Daily Mail, a series of meetings were held at Kensington Palace this week to finalize the announcement—which could come as early as Tuesday. Yes—3 days from now! While we were busy making educated guesses as to what Meghan Markle's engagement ring will look like, it looks like the royal couple may have been busy making things official.
Markle recently wrapped filming on the 7th (also rumored to be her last) season of the hit show Suits in Canada and has been seen making the rounds in London. Rumor has it the actress, and her two dogs, is moving in with her royal boyfriend in his Nottingham Cottage. While some are speculating the engagement announcement will come as early as next week, US Weekly's sources are pointing to a January engagement. Come on, everyone gets engaged over New Year's Eve! Royals—they're just like us.
The rumor mill has been churning since these two first got together. Last month, sources close to the couple revealed they’re “as good as engaged,” and close pals are even picking out wedding outfits! “While Meghan may not be wearing a ring or a formal engagement announced, it’s fair to say they’re as good as engaged now,” a source previously told E! News. “They've spoken about their marriage plans openly with each other, and friends and family around them are pretty much thinking about wedding attire already!”
In the October issue of Vanity Fair, Markle pretty much confirmed their relationship was meant to last. “We’re two people who are really happy and in love,” she said. “We’re a couple. We’re in love. I’m sure there will be a time when we will have to come forward and present ourselves and have stories to tell, but I hope what people will understand is that this is our time. This is for us. It’s part of what makes it so special, that it’s just ours. But we’re happy. Personally, I love a great love story.”
Last month, royal expert Katie Nicholl told Entertainment Tonight that her own royal sources predict that an engagement announcement will arrive in late December or early January, with the wedding taking place in the summer—well after the arrival of Prince William's third child.
Will the Prince Harry and Meghan Markle engagement really happen this week? Stay tuned!
