Is Meghan Markle marrying Prince Harry? Shutting down her website could be the first step
Actress Meghan Markle has just shut down her website The Tig, after writing about her life on it for three years. The 35-year-old American has been dating Britain’s Prince Harry since last year, and rumor now has it the shutting down of her website is because she is moving closer to marrying Prince Harry, and privacy is what royal protocol demands. So, is Meghan Markle marrying Prince Harry?
Kensington Palace confirmed the pair were dating back in November, and that usually only happens when the relationship is serious.
Since then Prince Harry and Meghan have spent much of their time traveling around the world together, working on charity projects and enjoying each other’s company.
Meghan is an ambassador for World Vision and a U.N. Women advocate. Harry is involved in work with the London Marathon Charitable Trust, the Halo Trust and Walking With The Wounded.
He is also the founder of the Invictus Games, an international Paralympic-style event primarily for wounded, injured or sick armed services personnel and veterans. He still works closely with the organization.
While it looks like things between Prince Harry and Markle may have become serious, the pair have both been involved in long-term relationships in the past.
The now 32-year-old prince was quite seriously linked with Chelsy Davy, the daughter of South Africa-based businessman Charles Davy, for more than five years. He then dated Cressida Bonas, the daughter of Lady Mary-Gaye Curzon.
As for Markle, she was previously married to American TV and movie producer Trevor Engelson, but the pair divorced in 2013 after just two years of marriage.
Other indications Meghan Markle marrying Prince Harry?
Back in February, there were also rumblings Merkle was leaving her TV show Suits, and coming around the same time as her website shutting down, it is just one more indication that a royal wedding may soon be in the future.
After all, as the wife of a British royal, still acting in a TV series would be a bit of a no-no.
Back when Kate Middleton was dating Prince William, she resigned from her job as an accessories buyer at the clothing chain Jigsaw, and went to work in her parents’ business.
That was also seen as a way to be more removed from the news media continually following her around, as well as to do something more ‘appropriate’ and a bit more sheltered for a soon-to-be royal.
If Meghan Markle has indeed asked the writers of Suits to write her out of the show after the current season ends, the royal engagement that has also been rumored to be happening before the end of the summer could be a reality.
