Prince Harry is said to be dating American actress and model Meghan Markle, best known for her role in Suits.
Sources close to the Prince told the Irish Daily Star that he is “happier than he has been for years” with the actress, who plays Rachel Zane on the popular US legal drama.
Ms Markle has made several trips to London, and was seen in the royal box at Wimbledon on June 28th and July 4th.
“He’s in a very relaxed period of his life and Meghan has come along at the right time,” a source told the Daily Star.
“They are taking each week as it comes and just enjoying each other’s company but it’s fair to say that they love seeing each other and there’s a definite chemistry between them.”
Ms Markle and the Prince have not been seen in public together, but sources say she has been out for dinner with his friends, and even met William and Kate.
Harry likely met Ms Markle in May when he was promoting the Invictus Games for disabled servicemen in Toronto, where Markle lives and Suits is filmed.
Ms Markle was born in Los Angeles and spent time on film sets as a child because her father worked as a lighting director. She graduated from Northwestern University and spent time as a freelance calligrapher before landing her big break in 2002 on General Hospital.
Ms Markle works with UN Women and the HeforShe campaign, and sources say they have bonded over their humanitarian work: “Harry loves to hear about her humanitarian work and he thinks she’s doing a fantastic job.”
Harry has been single since his split from actress Cressida Bonas in 2014.
