Actress Meghan Markle recently opened up about her relationship with Prince Harry for the first time, declaring that the two are happy and are very much "in love".
Reports have already surfaced that the couple will be having the royal engagement later this month. The Daily Mail said that the 32-year-old prince and the 36-year-old actress will likely make an appearance together at the Invictus Games on Sept 23.
The international event, in which injured and sick servicemen and veterans compete in various sports, was created by Prince Harry. Incidentally, this year Games will be held in Toronto, the city where Markle is living while filming TV drama "Suits".
The Mail reported that the Kensington Palace would have made an announcement about the engagement earlier but they delayed it because they did not want it to overshadow the 20th anniversary of Princess Diana's death.
Last November, Prince Harry took many by surprise when he announced his relationship with Markle.
The actress earlier revealed in a magazine that she was dating Prince Harry. She said: "We're two people who are really happy and in love. "Nothing about me changed. I'm still the same person that I am, and I've never defined myself by my relationship." The "Suits" actress met the royal in July 2016 and their relationship created quite a stir.
In November 2016, a statement from the Prince said "Markle had been subjected to a wave of abuse and harassment". It added, "Some of this has been very public - the smear on the front page of a national newspaper; the racial undertones of comment pieces; and the outright sexism and racism of social media trolls and web article comments."
Prince Harry said in the statement that he was worried about Ms Markel's safety. On the other hand, Irish broadcaster Ryan Tubridy said that the 36 year old actress is perfect for Harry's personality.
Speaking on his RTE Radio One show he mentioned that "The two boys, William and Harry, seem to have found women in their lives. They looked over their shoulders and thought, 'well we don't want to do that, so let us do this'. So, they have found what they were looking for.
