The relationship between Prince Harry and his actress girlfriend Meghan Markle is going from strength to strength.
The Suits star has reportedly been given the seal of approval by key members of the royal family and the couple are said to be making their first public debut together at Pippa’s wedding this summer.
In the latest development, Meghan shocked fans when she announced that she was stopping her lifestyle blog ‘The Tig’.
Taking to Instagram to announce the news to her heartbroken fans, Meghan also wrote online:
“What began as a passion project (my little engine that could) evolved into an amazing community of inspiration, support, fun and frivolity. You’ve made my days brighter and filled this experience with so much joy. Keep finding those Tig moments of discovery, keep laughing and taking risks, and keep being “the change you wish to see in the world. Above all, don’t ever forget your worth – as I’ve told you time and time again: you, my sweet friend, you are enough.”
The 35 year old has been steadily retreating from the public eye since her relationship with Prince Harry was revealed. Many speculate that the increased privacy surrounding Meghan’s formerly very public life is in preparation for the American actress to begin to take a minor role in the royal family alongside Harry – before a potential proposal could be announced.
Tellingly, Kate Middleton gave up her job as an accessories buyer for Jigsaw before her engagement to Prince William was announced in 2010.
And in a further sign that the pair are on course for what could be the most exciting of royal nuptials, the Toronto-based star is rumoured to be quitting the smash-hit show that made her famous.
According to the Daily Star the 35-year-old has approached show bosses to have her character Rachel Zane written out. The reason? She’s wants to focus on spending as much time with her royal beau as possible. Plus, a move to London to live with Harry could be in the works!
“The sexy actress wants to quit legal drama Suits, which is filmed in Toronto,” the Star reports.
It goes on to reveal that couple “are set for a trial run” in the upcoming months. Harry will be spending time in Toronto – Meghan’s home town – in the lead up to the next Invictus Games, which take place in September.
Harry and Meghan’s whirlwind romance has largely been a long-distance one. And the latest move could finally indicate that the pair are getting serious about their future together.
There are also rumours that Meghan will soon make the move across the pond. It is said that she will move into Prince Harry’s cottage in the ground of Kensington Palace.
Although many fans are worried that Meghan is making too many ‘sacrifices’ to be with Harry, from giving up her blog to puling out of the TV show that catapulted her to global stardom, other well wishers noted that if the bubbly actress is truly in love with Harry, “sacrifice [is necessary] on both sides”.
