Meghan tells harry ‘I’M Wor­ried’

Loved-up Meghan and Prince Harry look set to face their tough­est chal­lenge yet

Look (UK) - - CONTENTS -

It seemed like a real-life fairy­tale for Meghan Markle. The ac­tress and Prince Harry, who con­firmed their ro­mance in Novem­ber, seem to be a match made in heaven, with 35-year-old Meghan slip­ping seam­lessly into an ‘un­der the radar’ royal life. But sources say that be­hind the smiles there are a few tiny cracks – and they face po­ten­tially the tough­est chal­lenge of their re­la­tion­ship yet as Love Is­land wraps up and Harry’s ru­moured ex-fling Camilla Thur­low ex­its the re­al­ity show. Could it push the pair to break­ing point?

A source tells Look: ‘This is the first time Meghan’s re­ally had to con­tend with any­thing to do with Harry’s past in terms of the girls he’s dated, so a few in­se­cu­rity is­sues have raised their head.’

Meghan and Harry’s re­la­tion­ship has seemed in­cred­i­bly smooth up un­til now. Ac­cord­ing to re­ports, when Harry, 32, first clapped eyes on the Suits star in May 2016 while in Toronto pro­mot­ing the In­vic­tus Games, he was smit­ten. We’re told the Prince wasn’t drawn just to her looks but her al­tru­ism.

Their re­la­tion­ship moved quickly, with Harry mak­ing his feel­ings for Meghan pub­lic knowl­edge in a royal state­ment is­sued five months later, in which he re­ferred to her as his ‘girl­friend’ and de­fended her right to pri­vacy.

What’s more, pals are now ex­pect­ing an im­mi­nent en­gage­ment an­nounce­ment, with sources qui­etly telling us they be­lieve it will be­fore his 33rd birth­day on 15 Sep­tem­ber.

The pair now never spend a month apart. In fact, last week when they were meant to be on op­po­site sides of the world, they were ac­tu­ally holed up to­gether at Harry’s Kens­ing­ton Palace pad Not­ting­ham Cot­tage, be­fore the ac­tress flew back to Canada for work. Even when they’re apart, they chat reg­u­larly on Facetime.

But while they’re in their love bub­ble, the threat of 27-year-old Camilla ex­pos­ing Harry’s se­crets has left Meghan wor­ried. Camilla, who is an ex­plo­sives ord­nance dis­posal ex­pert whose work has taken her all over the world, was first linked to Harry in July 2014. The pair were spot­ted to­gether at Ton­te­ria night­club in Lon­don’s Sloane Square, shortly af­ter his split from Cres­sida Bonas.

A source says: ‘Meghan’s a re­ally con­fi­dent and suc­cess­ful girl, but she’s only hu­man and when Harry’s ex is be­ing talked about ev­ery­where she finds it mas­sively un­com­fort­able.

‘Harry keeps re­as­sur­ing her, but it’s ob­vi­ously hard for them both. They’ve tried to keep things go­ing at a steady pace, qui­etly, but Camilla will be in de­mand and no mat­ter how dis­creet she is about her past with Harry it’s in­evitably go­ing to keep rais­ing its head ev­ery time she makes a pub­lic ap­pear­ance or gives an in­ter­view.’

Camilla even hinted be­fore she went into the Love Is­land villa that she might open up about the Prince, also com­ment­ing on the fact that he once dated the show’s host Caro­line Flack.

She told Look: ‘I hope it’s not weird with Caro­line. I’m ex­cited to meet her. She’s a great role model. I don’t know if she would want to talk about it [her ro­mance with Harry] – I’ll cross that bridge when I come to it.’

It’s not just the Love Is­land con­nec­tion Meghan has to worry about. Harry’s ‘party prince’ al­ter-ego re-emerged last week as he watched The Killers at the Bar­clay­card Bri­tish Sum­mer Time Hyde Park fes­ti­val. He en­ter­tained a host of friends in the VIP ter­race, away from mem­bers of the pub­lic, and seemed on top form as he sipped Heineken beer and posed for self­ies with the group. Fair play, Harry. Our source adds: ‘Harry keeps telling Meghan to fo­cus on them as a cou­ple and their plans to­gether – he wants her to put ev­ery­thing else out of her head. How­ever, it’s eas­ier said than done.’
