Meghan Markle 'tries on wedding dresses' and jokes about marrying in Westminster Abbey
A royal engagement might be closer than we think.
Meghan Markle (35) was reportedly pictured trying on wedding dresses in Canada, adding fuel to the near daily speculation of when she and Prince Harry (32) will wed. The couple have been dating for little over a year, but insiders in both camps report this is it for both of them and a proposal is all but assured by the end of the year.
And with Markle shutting down her blog and wrapping up her affairs in Toronto, where she shoots US legal drama Suits, she's expected to move to London next year.
The Sun reports that the tv star tried on wedding dresses with friends "for fun", including one particularly daring midriff-baring gown, which she joked would be too risque for Westminster Abbey.
"She was with a couple of friends and they all thought she looked gorgeous," the source said. "The fact she's trying on dresses and thinking about their wedding shows how serious they are.'
Meghan just touched down in Canada after spending the last 10 days with Harry and in May, she also spent several days with him at Kensington Palace and they attended Pippa Middleton's wedding together.
There has been no official announcement of another royal wedding, but Markle is right - she can wed in Westminster Abbey, where Prince William and Kate Middleton exchanged vows in 2011.
Not to mention that Westminster Abbey released a statement clarifying she is eligible to wed Prince Harry there, despite the fact that she is divorced (she was previously married to Trevor Engelson from 2011 to 2013).
"The Abbey follows the General Synod Ruling of 2002. Since then it has been possible for divorced people to be married in the Church of England," a spokesperson told the Daily Express.
His grandmother, Britain's Queen Elizabeth, is said to have approved of the budding romance early on, while his father Prince Charles and Kate and William all approve.
