Prince Harry said to be ‘besotted’ with Suits actress Meghan Markle
Prince Harry has been secretly dating American actress Meghan Markle, it is claimed.
The royal red head is said to be “besotted” by the brunette beauty who’s best known for her role as Rachel Zane on US legal drama Suits.
A source close to Harry, 32, told the Sunday 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.”
Meghan, 35, is believed to have crossed paths with Harry in May, while the royal was in Toronto to promote his Invictus Games for disabled servicemen.
Born in Los Angeles, Meghan now lives in Toronto where Suits is filmed.
Desperate to keep their romance under the radar, the stunning actress reportedly has made several low-key visits to London, meeting with Harry’s pals and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.
The insider said: “William and Kate really liked her and she fitted in straight away.
“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.
“Harry has been desperate to keep the relationship quiet because he doesn’t want to scare Meghan off.
“He knows things will change when their romance is public knowledge but he also knows he can’t keep it a secret for long.”

The pair both share a passion for humanitarian work, with Meghan working for several organisations including World Vision Canada and the United Nations.
She also has visited Afghanistan to support US forces and their families.
Meghan married film producer Trevor Engelson in 2011, but the pair split in 2013.
The US actress isn’t the first star to have been linked to the Prince in recent years.
Last year claims of a fledgling romance between Harry and Ellie Goulding emerged after it was reported the pair were seen getting very close at the Audi Polo challenge in Coworth Park, Berkshire, in July 2015.
It was also believed that Brit actress Jenna Coleman 30, caught the eye of the royal during a polo match at Ascot, where the pair were spotted getting cosy, chatting the night away on a sofa.
And back in June the cheeky prince, who split from long-term girlfriend Cressida Bonas earlier this year, revealed his secret desire to take part on TV dating show Take Me Out to help him find the one.
