Please get engaged soon!

Well Royal fans, it’s finally happened. Prince Harry has reportedly taken his girlfriend Meghan Markle to meet the Queen for tea.

Now, when you think about how long Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have been dating, this has happened quite quickly.

Reports say the couple first started dating in October 2016 and according to US Weekly, Kate Middleton and Prince William were dating for five years before Kate met the Queen. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge revealed in their official engagement interview that she met the Queen at Peter Philips and Autumn Kelley’s wedding at Windsor in May 2008.

“Well I first met her at Peter and Autumn’s wedding and again it was in amongst a lot of other guests and she was very friendly.”

Markle meeting the Queen has sparked speculation that the couple are due to announce their engagement. 

It has been reported that Prince Harry took the actress to meet his grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II last week. 

The Daily Mail reports the couple travelled there in a car with blacked out windows and visited her private sitting room for an informal tea.

News.com.au reported the 5pm ritual is said to be the Queen’s favourite part of the day where she has sandwiches, fruit or cake and drinks her own blend of Darjeeling or Assam tea.

We hear wedding bells…

The meeting comes after The Daily Star reported the 36-year-old will film her final scenes for ‘Suits’ next month. They say she prepares for more public appearances with Harry and become a “full-time royal”. 

A source said:

“Meghan knows she can’t really act at the same time as being a princess and is happy to make this career sacrifice.

“She really enjoys her charity work with Unicef and will broaden out her charity commitments when she becomes a full-time royal.”

They added that the couple will announce their engagement by Christmas.
