meghan & HARRY: READY To WED – BUT THERE’S A PROBLEM…
meghan and harry:
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...
