It was just a cheeky tweet, but Harry hates this kind of at­ten­tion

The wed­ding is ‘im­mi­nent’ – but there’s some ma­jor shade go­ing on be­hind the scenes…

Not gonna lie, we’re get­ting se­ri­ously ex­cited at the thought of Prince Harry an­nounc­ing his en­gage­ment – in fact, we’re plan­ning a street party al­ready. But while re­ports sug­gest the cou­ple are close to an­nounc­ing their en­gage­ment, a source speak­ing ex­clu­sively to Look has re­vealed that Harry’s ready to turn down his royal du­ties in a bid to put Meghan first and lead a ‘nor­mal life’.

‘The whole world knows that Harry is be­sot­ted with Meghan,’ says a close pal. ‘It’s no se­cret he wants a more nor­mal life, so he’s fully pre­pared to cut down on work. For Harry, Meghan’s The One. She comes first and he’s made it very clear he wants mar­riage, kids, the lot. He’ll do what­ever it takes to re­tain as much pri­vacy for them as he can.’

While most of us are happy for the 32-year-old prince, not ev­ery­one is. Ac­cord­ing to our sources, his open­ness about his de­sire to fo­cus on Meghan and not his royal du­ties has caused fric­tion. Harry’s even ad­mit­ted that at one point he ‘wanted out’ of the Royal Fam­ily.

But fol­low­ing the fall­out from his high-pro­file re­la­tion­ships with Cres­sida Bonas and Chelsy Davy (‘It was so full-on: crazy and scary and un­com­fort­able,’ Chelsy ad­mit­ted last year) we can un­der­stand why try­ing to main­tain a pri­vate life is of ut­most im­por­tance to the Prince.

It’s no won­der Harry seems so pro­tec­tive of Meghan, 36. But while the ac­tress has also been cut­ting down on her own work com­mit­ments (the cur­rent sea­son of Suits is said to be her last on the show), she’s re­port­edly told Harry to think care­fully about his choices.

‘She loves that Harry is put­ting her first,’ says our in­sider. ‘But equally, she to­tally gets that he has re­spon­si­bil­i­ties and doesn’t want him to forgo ev­ery­thing. She’s made it very clear she loves Harry no mat­ter what his ti­tle or his com­mit­ments.’

Since the pair an­nounced their re­la­tion­ship last Novem­ber, it seems Meghan has also made changes. Once a reg­u­lar so­cial me­dia user, she hasn’t tweeted since early March and has been ab­sent on In­sta­gram for four months. She also shut down her beloved life­style site The Tig in April.

Last week, an old post from Meghan’s Twit­ter ac­count resur­faced, plac­ing the cou­ple in the spot­light once again. In June last year, a user tweeted: ‘@meghan­markle en­joys at­mos­phere on cen­tre court dur­ing @ser­e­naw­illiams match at #Wim­ble­don,’ to which Megs replied: ‘More like the mo­ment I no­ticed @do­minic­coop was there and I thought I should fix my hair. Ha!’

Ac­cord­ing to our source, the spec­u­la­tion that post caused was ex­actly the kind of drama that Harry wants to avoid. ‘It was just a cheeky tweet, but Harry hates this kind of at­ten­tion,’ ex­plains our in­sider.

We can’t blame Megs for eye­ing up Do­minic Cooper (she’s only hu­man, right?), but we have to ad­mit, we’re wor­ried about the pair. With an en­gage­ment an­nounce­ment set to come ‘in months’ we just hope that they can find the bal­ance they need and the roy­als come on board...
