Actress Meghan Markle wrapped filming on her final season of Suits this past week, and she has already moved out of her Toronto apartment. The 36-year-old just arrived in London and is reportedly staying with Prince Harry at the palace. Does this mean an official engagement announcement is coming soon?
Us Weekly is reporting that Markle will soon be living in Harry’s two-bedroom Nottingham Cottage, which she has already begun decorating. A friend of Markle told the magazine that the couple has no plans to live separately; instead, she will “move right in.” Prince William and Kate Middleton also lived together before they got married, first at St. Andrews University, and then later at a secluded farmhouse in North Wales.

There is speculation that Harry and Markle will eventually move into Apartment 1 at the palace, which features 21 rooms and is currently where the Duke and Duchess of Gloucester live.
Meghan Markle has visited London many times over the past year, with many people in Harry’s Kensington neighborhood spotting her carrying Whole Foods shopping bags and picking up flowers. She also visited a local Soho spa the night before Pippa Middleton’s wedding.
However, it was an invitation from the Queen last month asking Markle to join her for tea that showed the world just how serious things were getting between her and the prince.
Royal watchers and fans should expect an official engagement announcement early in the new year, complete with a photocall and syndicated TV interview, just like William and Kate did back in 2010.
Another source says Markle will be a June bride, and now that her Suits life in Toronto is behind her she is ready to start this new chapter in her life with Harry.

According to a People Magazine insider, Harry has made no secret about wanting to marry Markle. “She is the one,” says the source.
The relationship between the two has started to move rather quickly. In September, Markle gushed about her boyfriend in an interview with Vanity Fair, and she revealed that the two were in love and really happy.
Then the couple made their first public appearance together, walking hand-in-hand at the start of the Invictus Games. By the end of the week, cameras caught Prince Harry kissing her during the closing ceremonies.
