Prince Harry allegedly had a crush on Meghan Markle two years before he even met her. According to the Daily Mail, Prince Harry was out and about with a friend when he got asked the question, “Who you got a crush on, mate?” Prince Harry, bless his sweet summer child heart, admitted that Meghan Markle from Suits was his all-time favourite crush. Royal expert and know-it-all, Katie Nicholl, reveals the fervent secret in a documentary set to air in the U.K. tonight.
“He had a crush on Rachel Zane [Meghan Markle’s character in Suits] two years before he met Meghan and the reason I know is because I was having drinks with one of his friends.’She told me she’d been on a night out with Prince Harry. He was single at the time, so she said,’Harry, who’s your ideal girl?’ And he said ‘Meghan Markle from Suits.’”
So Prince Harry had his eye on Meghan since day one? I don’t know whether it’s creepy, sad, odd or all of the above. Thank the good Lawd that he’s royal and has influence and good hair. Otherwise he wouldn’t have stood a chance with Meghan. I wouldn’t say she’s out of his league, I mean, who is in a royal league after all? Anyone with warm blood and a beating heart? Don’t get me wrong – Prince Harry is dapper and attractive. But Meghan, who is an actress, an American, a side dish, is slightly over Harry’s head.
Love is blind though.
The two lovebirds are planning a wedding for next year. According to palace insiders, high-ranking members of the royal family have been asked to “clear their calendars” for an unspecified date next year. With an engagement announcement still in the works, it seems a bit hasty. But then again, Camilla Parker-Bowles most probably needs to be reminded of things because, you know, Camilla Parker-Bowles.
Do royals have literal diaries with scribbles and doodles? Or is it all stuck in the heads of royal aides? I can only imagine what the Queen is writing about Prince Harry and Meghan Markle: “Don’t let grandson get married to that wench. Love. Your conscience.”
What do you think? Is there a marriage on the cards for 2018? When will the engagement be announced? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
