In October of last year, news broke that Prince Harry was dating actress Meghan Markle. Since then, the couple have been under constant scrutiny and rumors of an engagement have been flying fast and loose.
Sounds like the chatter is getting more legit, especially since Meghan opened up about her love for Harry in a recent interview. Unfortunately, she's reportedly getting some pushback from his family about it.
In a cover story for Vanity Fair, Princess Meghan (yeah, we're claiming it), said, "We're a couple. We're in love. 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."
She also added, "We were very quietly dating for about six months before it became news, and I was working during that whole time, and the only thing that changed was people's perception. Nothing about me changed. I'm still the same person that I am, and I've never defined myself by my relationship." Was that too much to reveal? Some folks think so.
The royals are notoriously private, rarely granting interviews unless it's for charity events. Therefore, a source tells Celebrity Dirty Laundry that people are upset at Meghan for gushing about Harry. “Royal critics can’t believe Meghan would make such a bold move by declaring her love for Prince Harry in a magazine interview." And, “[If Markle] opens up about her Prince Harry romance in another interview, it might jeopardize their future altogether.”
This might be BS, considering E! reported that Prince Harry was extremely happy with the feature. Maybe being more open is a new day and time for the royals. Only time well tell, and lord knows the social media heavens will explode if Harry puts a ring on it!
