MEGHAN

Re­con­sid­er­ing Royal Ro­mance?

Look (UK) - - NEW STORY -

She might look loved-up with Prince Harry but the back­lash has started

Can you hear that? It’s the sound of hearts break­ing – brought on by these pho­tos of Prince Harry hand-in-hand with Meghan Markle, the wo­man pre­dicted to be our next princess. Sob.

OK, we might be get­ting ahead of our­selves (tech­ni­cally, Meg would be a duchess) but our royal con­nec­tions have told us that the 35-year-old ac­tress and Harry, 32, who’ve been dat­ing since Novem­ber, are be­sot­ted with each other. A fan who spot­ted the pair in Lon­don this week re­vealed they were ‘smil­ing, laugh­ing and hold­ing hands’. Aww.

But de­spite their loved-up ex­te­rior, the huge on­line back­lash against Meghan means she’s ap­par­ently re­think­ing her op­tions. ‘She’s so happy,’ one source close to her tells us, adding: ‘But while she knew there might be some neg­a­tiv­ity sur­round­ing her re­la­tion­ship, she’s taken aback by how per­sonal it is.’

‘Bitch, he’s mine’ and ‘that slutty ac­tress’ are just some of the vile tweets aimed at her. Now she’s re­port­edly wor­ried that her high pro­file union might have an ef­fect on her pro­fes­sional image, es­pe­cially as rat­ings for the lat­est series of Suits have dropped.

‘I’ve never wanted to be a lady who lunches; I’ve al­ways wanted to be a wo­man who works,’ Meghan says in an ar­ti­cle on her lifestyle web­site Thetig.com. ‘She’s fiercely pro­tec­tive of her ca­reer,’ adds our source.

De­spite that, friends say the star won’t be forced into any big de­ci­sions just yet. ‘She’s been spend­ing time do­ing nor­mal things with Harry,’ says an­other source. ‘They’re re­ally close, but she’s just got her con­cerns about such a pub­lic ro­mance.’

How­ever, their re­la­tion­ship might soon come un­der even more scru­tiny. Meghan’s break from film­ing her show has been ex­tended and she’s ap­par­ently scored an in­vite to Pippa Mid­dle­ton’s wed­ding on 20 May, mean­ing the pos­si­bil­ity of their first pub­lic en­gage­ment.

As for the wed­ding rumours sur­round­ing her and Harry, our sources have re­vealed it’s not on the ta­ble… yet. And while there’s been spec­u­la­tion that the maybe-fu­ture royal has been sport­ing an ‘H’ ring, it’s ac­tu­ally just a stack­able de­sign from her friend’s Lon­don-based com­pany Mis­soma. Boo! We’ll just con­tinue to watch the story of the cutest cou­ple ever un­fold, then…

Meghan’s on a break from film­ing US show Suits. (Be­low:) ‘The ring’
