In an interview with Vanity Fair, Markle confirmed that the couple is in love.
“We’re a couple, we’re in love,” Markle said. “I’m sure there will be a time when we will have to come forward and present ourselves and have stories to tell, but I hope what people will understand is that this is our time. This is for us. It’s part of what makes it so special, that it’s just ours. But we’re happy. Personally, I love a great love story.”
According to the insider Markle’s comments made Prince Harry both “humble” and “proud”. The insider went on to say that the Prince feels the same way about Markle.
She apparently had kept what she said in the interview a secret. So, it was a surprise to Prince Harry that she made such a public declaration of love.
Markle also revealed in the interview that she and Prince Harry had been dating for six months before their relationship was made public at the end of 2016. She claims nothing about her has changed, just perceptions of her.

The Suits actress, who plays lawyer Rachel Zane, also says that she doesn’t define herself by her relationships, and never has.
But, this relationship has had some challenges that are unique to dating a Prince. She admits it “comes in waves”. She doesn’t read any media about herself. Not even about her own show. But, she has a good support system, including the support of her “boyfriend”.
The couple reportedly met through a friend back in the summer of 2016. Months later, once their relationship was discovered, online “trolls” were attacking Markle about her relationship with the Prince. This prompted Harry to issue an official statement condemning the online bullies.
When it comes to the Royal family, it appears everyone approves of the relationship. Does this mean wedding bells are coming soon? Only time will tell if Prince Harry will make Meghan Markle an American princess.
