Could Prince Harry and his girlfriend, American actress Meghan Markle, be about to take their relationship to the next level? Prince Harry’s girlfriend was seen out and about in London wearing a gold ring on her right hand – apparently, a promise ring given to her by Harry. The band could well be a subtle nod to Prince Harry and Meghan’s commitment to him, as it looks to be embossed with a gold ‘H’.
The US star was spotted with the fancy new piece of jewellery whilst out buying flowers near the Prince’s Kensington Palace home. During her trip to the flower stall, Meghan made sure to wrap up warm against the cold, donning a pair of £70 Hunter wellies and a green Barbour jacket.
Meghan is currently on a break from filming the law drama Suits in Toronto, so has been spending most of her free time in the UK with the royal.
The 35 year-old actress has been spending a lot of time in London since she and the prince got together last year, with rumours circulating that a permanent move, from her home in Toronto to this side of the pond, is imminent.
The young couple are expected to make their first official appearance together at Pippa Middleton’s wedding to James Matthews on 20th May. Harry and Meghan’s relationship was confirmed by the Prince’s communication secretary in November 2016, when Harry defended her against harassment and abuse from the press and the public.
The statement read, “His girlfriend, Meghan Markle, has been subject to a wave of abuse and harassment.
“Prince Harry is worried about Ms Markle’s safety and is deeply disappointed that he has not been able to protect her.”
The adorable pair were spotted out together for the first time in November of last year, holding hands after a theatre date in London.
And this isn’t the first time that the actress has been spotted sporting jewellery with her royal boyfriend’s initials on them. In December 2016, Meghan was seen wearing a necklace with both an ‘H’ and an ‘M’ charm on it, symbolising the pairs initials.
Meghan was seen wearing the necklace whilst on another shopping trip for flowers – something she has admitted that she loves to decorate her home with. The actress regularly used to update her social media with pictures of the bouquets she dots around her home, calling them her “treat”.
