harry to meghan: ‘noth­ing Will tear us apart’

Snog­ging at the polo? Ig­nor­ing the fam­ily hate? Meghan Markle and Prince Harry want the world to know that noth­ing will break them up…

Look (UK) - - CONTENTS -

When Look saw Meghan Markle kiss­ing her boyfriend Prince Harry at the polo last week, we did a proper ‘proud face’. It be­ing the cou­ple’s first of­fi­cial en­gage­ment, it sent out a clear mes­sage, with our own Look at­tendee re­veal­ing that the cou­ple ap­peared more in love than ever. ‘Meghan feels to­tally ready to go pub­lic with Harry and take on the re­spon­si­bil­i­ties that come with that,’ says our royal in­sider. ‘Her ini­tial fears of los­ing her own iden­tity have gone. Step­ping out with Harry was a real in­di­ca­tor that their re­la­tion­ship is strong enough to with­stand the pub­lic in­ter­est. She knows he’s The One.’ It comes af­ter a rocky month for the cou­ple. Not only have they been deal­ing with the 3,500-mile dis­tance be­tween them as Meghan filmed in her home­town of Toronto, but they’ve faced a se­ri­ously poi­sonous back­lash from vi­cious on­line trolls who called her ‘money-grab­bing’ and ‘vile’ – not to men­tion at­tacks from her own fam­ily. ‘It’s been a test­ing time for them as a cou­ple,’ says our source, ‘but Meghan knew it would be like this and it was Harry’s de­ci­sion to pub­licly de­fend her and take care of her that has con­vinced her.’ Harry, who we’re told didn’t ex­pect Meghan to at­tend the polo with him, is com­pletely smit­ten with the Suits ac­tress. ‘He’s been very open with ev­ery­one around him that Meghan’s a keeper, says our source. ‘The polo was his way of show­ing off his girl­friend and let­ting any­one who’s tried to break them know they’re more than OK.’ Yeah, we’re of­fi­cially pretty jel! The polo was a big deal for an­other rea­son, how­ever. Fans were quick to com­pare the images to ones of Kate and Wills at the same event back in 2009, only months be­fore they an­nounced their en­gage­ment.

And while we’re told the big pro­posal has al­ready hap­pened, the hum­ble pair have kept quiet so they can en­joy a lit­tle more time out of the spot­light. It’s also so as not to of­fend Pippa Mid­dle­ton, 33, who mar­ries her hedge fund man­ager beau James Matthews this Satur­day – an­other event Meghan and Harry are ex­pected to at­tend to­gether.

‘Meghan’s ready to an­nounce the en­gage­ment within a week,’ says our source. ‘She’s told friends she and Harry want to do it in their own time, but at last she feels ready to cel­e­brate the re­la­tion­ship pub­licly.’

But as much as Meghan’s hop­ing to be able to ig­nore some of the vit­riol from her past – in­clud­ing those who’ve claimed she’s a ‘royal hunter’ and a ‘so­cial climber’, as well as her own half­sis­ter, who’s claimed she only wants the fame and royal con­nec­tions – could it ac­tu­ally break her? We like to think not. But it did get us think­ing about how well we know Meghan Markle…
