Loved-up Royal couple Prince Harry and Meghan Markle “just can't bear to be apart at the moment”, a royal source has said.

While speculation swirls that a royal wedding will take place next year, the couple are doing all they can to see each other.

Harry (33) is planning a trip to see Meghan (36) in Toronto later this month, a royal source told the Sun newspaper.

The Prince will fly to North America for a speaking engagement at the inaugural Obama Foundation Summit in Chicago.

However, a spokesperson for Kensington Palace said the prince would be flying directly to and from London for the summit. 

The couple have only been dating for a year and a half but speculation has been gathering pace that an engagement is imminent.

Senior members of Britain's Royal Family are understood to have been asked to shortlist a series of suitable weekends for next year – a huge sign that an engagement could be on the way, according to the Mail On Sunday's Robert Jonson.

Last week, Harry and Meghan met his grandmother, Britain's Queen Elizabeth for an extended afternoon tea at Buckingham Palace.

Speculators believe that any official engagement announcement would be unlikely until after the Queen’s 70th wedding anniversary celebrations on November 20.
