Ever since the world first learned that Prince Harry is dating Meghan Markle, the world has been fascinated with the star of the US cable drama Suits.
Almost immediately, breathless rumors originating in the tabloids and circulating on social media indicated that the couple couldn't wait to get to the altar.
At first, it was said that Harry and Meghan would get engaged in the spring - a bit premature, as it turned out, but they were still hot and heavy.
Shortly thereafter, the date was pushed back, and it was widely reported that Harry would pop the question "sometime this summer."
Now, the engagement talk seems to have come to a stop completely, and naturally, the gossip pendulum has swung in the other direction.
Several noted royal watchers are now claiming that Harry and Meghan have entered a cooling off period in their whirlwind courtship.
Part of the basis for that speculation is that Harry and Meghan recently went several weeks without seeing one another in person.
Is there anything more to it, though?
Following Pippa Middleton's wedding on May 20, the pair reportedly spent a few days together in London, upstaging the bride.
Just kidding, although they did turn plenty of hears with this high-profile appearance before returning to their separate continents.
During that time, the folks who apparently receive round-the-clock GPS data on Harry and Meghan became concerned.
Might the couple was growing apart, emotionally, as well as geographically? Might this fairy tale romance grind to a permanent halt?
It looks like the reports of Harkle's death were greatly exaggerated, as we now know that the two of them spent much of the past week together in Toronto.
"They hadn't been together for a while, so it was exciting for both to see each other," a source close to MegMar tells E! News.
"Harry had planned to fly out this time as he felt it was unfair for Meghan to always be the one flying around, and she'd just come back from the U.S."
Not surprisingly, the high-profile couple spent most of their time at Meghan's home, away from the spotlight.
At Markle's abode, they "relaxed" and spent evenings "cooking meals together" and "eating outside in the garden a lot."
"It's Meghan's favorite 'room' in the house," the insider says of Markle's backyard.
"She calls it a room because it's the perfect patio space."
Obviously, the truly shocking part of this story is that Meghan's favorite part of her house is the patio.
The woman lives in Toronto!
That means her favorite part of her house is accessible like three weeks out of the year!
It's a pretty tragic situation, when you think about it.
Basically, Meghan is like a real estate Sleeping Beauty and marrying Harry and becoming a princess is the only thing that can make up for the suffering she's endured up to this point.
