Dig out that fascinator—a royal wedding could be on the horizon! Reports are surfacing that Prince Harry is planning to propose to his girlfriend Meghan Markle soon. And when we say soon, we mean soon. Rumor has it that this royal proposal could be just mere weeks away.
After dating for about a year, with the actress jetting back-and-forth between America and England to see her British beau, this couple reportedly has their eyes on the aisle. "I'm told there will be a formal proposal, and it could be as soon as next month," a source just shared with The Daily Mail.
Since his late mother's engagement ring has taken up permanent residence on the finger of his sister-in-law, the Duchess of Cambridge, Prince Harry is allegedly having a custom engagement ring made at Collins, the Queen's jeweler. Hey, one needs a royal ring to kick off a royal wedding!
And that wedding could be happening not long after the proposal. The source added that the wedding is rumored to take place next year in the early spring.
Another insider seemed to confirm the first, speaking to E! News about the allegedly-upcoming engagement. "It's, of course, very serious and both Harry and Meghan are focused on the future," the source explained to E!. "Engagement talk isn't just between the two of them, even some of Harry's closest aides are quietly expecting news before the end of the year."
But despite the rumors that a proposal is "fast approaching," don't expect Markle to snap an engagement ring selfie anytime soon. "Right now, Meghan is trying to keep her head down, work hard and stay out of the media," noted the insider. "The past few months have been difficult and had its ups and downs with the amount of attention on her future with Harry, engagement talk, wedding talk, etc. She's hoping that if this is something that happens they can keep the news private for a while before having to go public."
The couple's desire for privacy has turned the pair into "total homebodies," according to the source. "They've just been chilling at home," said the insider. "There's always someone watching or trying to get pics when they go out that they're pretty happy just staying in and doing nothing. They like to cook, watch movies and that kind of thing."
And discuss the future together, apparently! "They talk about their future plans together all the time. There's no doubt that he won't propose before the year is out and it won't come as a surprise to Meghan."
