When news broke this weekend that Prince Harry has a rumored new girlfriend, we couldn't help but get a little ahead of ourselves and think — Royal Wedding! We've been anxiously awaiting the day that the world's most eligible bachelor would finally settle down and find himself a bride — could our dreams finally be coming true? Before we get too ahead of ourselves, maybe we should get to know the prince's potential bride-to-be, Suits star Meghan Markle.
Rumors that Prince Harry is dating Canadian actress, and Suits star, Meghan Markle began swirling this weekend and we couldn't be more excited. The couple reportedly met in Toronto over the summer while Prince Harry was in town for the Invictus Games. But who is Meghan Markle? We did a little digging and here's what you need to know about Prince Harry's new lady.
She Spent the Summer in London
If you take a glance at Markle's Instagram feed, you can see the actress spent much of her summer in Prince Harry's native London. She even attended Wimbledon — in the Royal Box.
She Follows Prince Harry on Instagram
According to Vanity Fair, Markle began following Prince Harry's private Instagram account in June, and he reportedly follows her right back.
She Is a Humanitarian
Like Prince Harry, Markle is committed to philanthropy. The 32-year-old stunner is a Global Ambassador for World Vision Canada, has worked with the United Nations for the HeforShe Gender Equality Campaign, has traveled to Rwanda for the Clean Water Campaign and to Afghanistan as part of a USO tour. She's also a counsellor for One Young World.
