Ever since news broke last fall that Suits actress Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are dating, their relationship has been meticulously documented. When they went Christmas tree shopping together in December, the photos were everywhere. Reports that Prince Harry proposed to Markle in August sent Twitter into a tailspin. Markle’s tell-all interview with Vanity Fair, where she revealed she and Prince Harry are “really happy and in love,” still has people swooning. Everyone is obsessed with this couple.
So it’s no surprise that Markle’s alleged first meeting with Prince Harry’s grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II, has the Internet abuzz right now. Us Weekly reports Markle met Queen Elizabeth for the first time on September 3 in Scotland. “Harry decided to take Meghan to visit as he hadn’t been up yet all summer…He wanted to introduce Meghan to the queen,” a source told the magazine.
That introduction reportedly took place in Balmoral Castle, the queen’s summer home, which is only a few miles away from the royals’ 53,000-acre estate called Birkhall. The meeting “went well,” according to the source and will “no doubt be the first of many encounters.”
What the queen and Markle chatted about—if the two actually did meet—is still a mystery. What are the chances that the queen is a major Suits fan and pumped Markle for spoilers?
“The entire weekend was a success,” the source told Us Weekly. “He was able to introduce someone he loves to someone he cares for deeply.”
So are wedding bells next up for Markle and Prince Harry? Nothing’s been confirmed yet, but rumors have been swirling around for weeks. If there’s this much excitement around the possibility of these two getting engaged, imagine what will happen when (and if) it’s officially announced. We’re not ready.
