At this point, there’s little doubt that things are getting serious between Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.
But are they "she should probably get used to introducing herself by her royal title" serious?
Let’s examine the evidence:
Initial reports claimed that Harry and Meghan started dating in September, but now it appears they’ve been together considerably longer than that.
Meghan has met Harry’s family and appears to be spending the bulk of her free time in London these days.
So it’s not hard to see why rumors of Harry and Meghan getting engaged began circulating pretty much immediately after the world learned they were dating.
This relationship has inspired strong opinions (many from the eternally butthurt) from the very start, and everyone seems to agree that the Playboy Prince actually seems ready to settle down.
Now, it looks as though the HarGhan ‘shippers and haters (of whom there’s a disturbing number on social media) are about to get even louder, as we have reason to believe that Harry might be gearing up to pop the question:
Speaking with the Daily Mail, Meghan’s brother, Thomas Markle, Jr., recently revealed that Harry traveled to Canada to meet Meg’s father six freakin’ months ago!
“My dad knew about [the relationship] from the start," Thomas says.
"He first met Prince Harry about six months ago out in Toronto. He goes once every couple of months – [Meghan and Thomas Markle Sr] are very close and they stay in close contact.
"He’s pretty happy about Harry and he’s extremely proud of her. They have an amazing relationship, they’re very close and they always have been.”
So what have we learned from this revelation?
Well, if Harry was already meeting the parents six months ago, clearly he and Meghan were in item well before September.
More importantly, the news that Harry goes trans-continental "every couple months" just to hand with Meghan’s dad is being taken by many as a sign that he’s preparing to get down on one knee.
We imagine Meghan’s first order of business after becoming part of the royal family will be to give up her role on the USA network drama Suits.
Not because acting is beneath her as a royal, but because she’s one of only four people on the planet who’s aware that Suits is an actual television show.
True story. We looked it up.
