The stunning 36-year-old star used an interview with Vanity Fair last week to tell the world: “We’re a couple, we’re in love”.
The piece led to talk from royal insiders that an engagement announcement is just around the corner, with a wedding tipped to take place next year.
Now, thanks to Markle’s most in-depth interview to date, we’ve been given a glimpse of a relationship that looks stable, durable, and increasingly likely to be formalised soon.
“At the end of the day I think it’s really simple,” the Suits star tells Sam Kashner, Vanity Fair‘s contributing editor. “We’re two people who are really happy and in love. We were very quietly dating for about six months before it became news, and I was working during that whole time, and the only thing that changed was people’s perception. I’m still the same person.”
Ultimately, outsiders should give Meghan and Harry the benefit of the doubt; assume they are playing their cards to the best of their ability—and expect an announcement of a new royal wedding in the next few months.
