Speculation has been heating up over the past few months after the couple finally went public with their romance over the summer.

Meghan was pictured supporting Harry at the Invictus Games in Canda and it's thought the pair had a secret meeting with the Queen to ask her permission for marriage. 

Meghan shot to fame as Rachel Zane hit U.S. legal drama 'Suits', and it appears that her exotic looks and impressive credentials have helped her steal the heart of the Prince, who so far, has been untamed. 

According to reports, the Prince went out of his way to pursue after she seemingly played hard to get, and begged her by text to agree to a date. 

A friend told The Sun newspaper: "They are the real deal. He definitely pursued her and besieged her with texts until she agreed to a date. Despite her unwillingness to strike up a relationship with the royal, she eventually gave in and now the pair have real feelings for each other. 

"He is very full-on but she was going through quite a tough time with her previous boyfriend and she was very flattered. He's head over heels and she feels the same. 

The source told The Sun the pair went to London's Soho House in early July 2016 with a group of friends and then had two more dates by themselves where the young royal "swept her off her feet."

Harry, who had been single since breaking off his two-year-relationship with Cressida Bonas in 2014, is reportedly "besotted" with Meghan and they had been dating secretly for six months before Harry confirmed their relationship.

The 35-year-old actress is a departure from Prince Harry's usual affixation for blondes, but it's thought the breath-taking beauty captivated the royal's attention during his visit to Toronto. 

A source close to the prince, who is fifth-in-line to the throne, told The Express: "He’s happier than he’s been for many years." 

"He’s in a very relaxed period of his life and Meghan has come along at the right time.

"They are taking each week as it comes and just enjoying each other’s company but it’s fair to say that they love seeing each other and there’s a definite chemistry between them."

Meghan first sparked speculaton last year when she appeared to be wearing a bracelet identical to Harry's in an Instagram post, sparking speculation that the flame-haired Prince had given her the trinket as a gift.

The Mail also revealed that Harry is one of the actress's many Instagram followers uses a pseudonym so the pair can stay connected on the picture-sharing website.
