Meghan Markle got the only royal seal of approval that matters - Prince George
Meghan Markle has officially been given the royal seal of approval.
The Suits actress (35), who is dating Prince Harry (32), has already met with Prince William and Kate Middleton and their daughter Princess Charlotte as well his father Prince Charles, but she has finally met the true power player in the British royal family - Prince George.
Before jetting off to Jamaica for Harry's best friend's wedding, the American tv star and royal heartthrob made a visit to William and Kate's estate in Norfolk for some afternoon tea.
"Meghan and Harry went to William and Kate's family home, Amner Hall in Norfolk, two weekends ago. They had tea with Wills and Kate and that's when Meghan met George," an insider told heat.
"It was love at first sight for him. She's a natural with kids, just like Harry - a kid at heart. She's from a big family, so she just mucks in and can be quite goofy with kids. She got down on George's level and played with him and the dog."
It's already reported that the Duchess of Cambridge took an instant liking to Harry's new love interest and has been guiding her in how to deal with the overnight public interest in her and her family.
Markle has been unofficially living in Kensington Palace with her other half while in London and their relationship is moving with apace with nearly daily rumours of a pending engagement.
"Kate is thrilled that Harry has finally found a girlfriend who looks like being a keeper," a source told Woman's Day magazine.
"She only wants the very best for her lovely brother-in-law - and Meghan looks like she fits the bill."
Meanwhile, the popular actress and philanthropist, has written an essay for Time magazine on the difficulty menstruating women and girls face in India.
She wrote candidly about the large numbers of schoolgirls in the country who are unable to properly care for themselves during their menstruation cycles and how it affects their education and lifestyle.
"During my time in the field, many girls shared that they feel embarrassed to go to school during their periods, ill equipped with rags instead of pads, unable to participate in sports, and without bathrooms available to care for themselves, they often opt to drop out of school entirely."
Markle also illustrates how such a challenge relates to larger issues faced by women in the nation.
"As a female in India, the challenge of survival begins at birth, first overcoming female feticide, then being victim to malnourishment, potentially abuse, and lack of access to proper sanitation facilities," she writes.
"Why, if she is able to overcome all of these challenges and finally get to school, should her education and potential to succeed, be sacrificed because of shame surrounding her period?"
Her involvement in global causes extends as far back as her college years. The former Fringe regular earned a degree in Theater and International Relations at Northwestern University in 2003.
