Has Prince Harry officially proposed to Suits actress Meghan Markle? Here's why we think so
In what seems like some of the best news of the year, there may a possibility of a Royal wedding happening soon as Prince Harry has reportedly proposed to his actress and UN ambassador Meghan Markle, while on a secret vacation in Botswana. For Harry, Africa holds a special place in his life and regards it as his spiritual home.
“I first came in 1997, straight after my mum died. My dad told my brother and me we were going to Africa to get away from it all. This is where I feel more like myself than anywhere else in the world. I have this intense sense of complete relaxation and normality here.” Africa has helped him connect with his mother more personally as it was here that the late princess taught her son the meaning of the local culture and had spent the most time with her kids.
Surprisingly, the odds of a possible engagement news are not far off because it was here in Africa that Prince William whisked Kate away for a romantic holiday in 2010, which culminated in their wedding. And if speculation is anything to go by, Prince Harry has repeated history too.
At least this is what the bookies would like to believe in England. Ladbrokes has cut the odds to 6/4 on Saturday, claiming they have insider knowledge that the much-anticipated proposal is very much on the cards. Jessica Bridge, of Ladbrokes, said: “It’s a case of when and not if Harry pops the question and royal punters are convinced it will be while the happy couple is on holiday.”
Given the way Prince Harry feels about Africa, it would come as no surprise if Prince Harry repeats history and proves the bookies right. Although Harry and Meghan have been very private about their relationship, it is widely known that both are much in love and are looking for long-term commitment. It was reported that Meghan is also ready to relocate to London and put a temporary halt to her acting career for their relationship.
According to friends, a helicopter flew Meghan to the top secret site before Harry proposed under the stars. His friends claim that Harry reportedly chose Zulu betrothal bracelets, an updated version of those currently worn by the couple as a symbol of love to mark the proposal. Later Harry’s had revealed to his friends that he’s hoping to make the official announcement in September.
There is no doubt that the couple looks incredible together and that they are comfortable with each other too and if this doesn't get tongues wagging about imminent proposals then we aren't sure what would. And though we are awaiting the confirmation with bated breath, we know it's almost here.
