prince harry meghan markle engaged

Prince Harry has been dating American actress Meghan Markle for nearly a year now, and the two sparked engagement rumors over the weekend when they were spotted leaving for a romantic African getaway:

The couple’s holiday destination — hugely popular for engagements and honeymoons — will only heighten speculation the prince, 32, is about to propose.

A royal source said: “Harry has been planning this holiday for a long time.

Harry planned the trip for Markle’s 36th birthday. But one big reason for all the engagement speculation is that Harry’s brother William proposed to Kate Middleton while on an African safari. Will Harry do the same?

“Who knows what will happen when they’re watching a sensational African sunset together? Maybe he’ll get down on one knee. Harry regards Africa as his spiritual home and has often talked of how he can get away from it all there.”

The engagement rumors come less than a month after OK! Magazine published a report that Queen Elizabeth does not approve of Harry’s relationship with Markle because she’s American and divorced. Take it with a grain of salt, but Harry’s relationship does hit close to home for the queen: her uncle, Edward VIII, abdicated the throne in 1936 to marry American divorcée, Wallis Simpson.

Nevertheless, Harry and Markle look happy!
