We just might have another American princess!

 They have gone public ... they are ... of course,  HRH Prince Henry Charles Albert David of Wales and Miss Rachel Meghan Markle ... better known as Prince Harry and Meghan Markle ..

At last night's opening ceremony for the Invictus Games in Toronto, Canada,  Prince Harry sat with fellow dignitaries, while Miss Markle sat with one of her besties, Markus Anderson, a consultant for the Soho House Group, a private members’ club.

Anderson, a Canadian, is said to be the person who introduced the couple in 2016.

It was an AP reporter who spotted Miss Markle in the crowd.  One of Harry's protection officers was not too far away from her.

Today,  the couple went public.  Seriously.  Earlier today,  Miss Markle, a co-star on Suits, a series on USA, accompanied Prince Harry to the wheel chair tennis competition.  The couple held hands!

Yes, Prince Harry has an American girlfriend ... will she become his princess?  My crystal ball broke years ago, and I have no plans to have it repaired.

Harry's wife will have the status of a Princess of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland because she will be married to a British prince.

There will be an official engagement announcement in the not-too-distant future.  Not tomorrow.  Miss Markle is at work on what will probably be the last season for Suits.  The series' filming should wrap up sometime toward the end of the year.

Queen Elizabeth II and Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, will celebrate their 70th wedding anniversary of November 20.   I don't expect a grand gala event, but there will be a Service of Thanksgiving at St Paul's.   The entire British royal family is expected to attend.  Miss Markle's appearance as a fiancee would detract from the event. 

Miss Markle is probably already making plans (visa, for starters) to move to London.  I doubt an engagement will take place before she has moved to London to begin preparations for her new life as a member of the British Royal family.

She will be the second American woman to marry a British royal, but unlike Wallis Simpson,  Miss Markle will have the style of Royal Highness.

Call me a hopeless romantic but those photos of the couple at the match yesterday were just about the cutest thing ever!😍😍

She will make a fine Princess/Duchess.She is well very intelligent, poised, and very eloquent. Most of all she clearly loves and adores Harry. 💜

i believe they're already engaged. I think it happened in Africa on her birthday. But that's just me. I actually think it will be announced anytime after HM's anniversary celebration - but again it's just my opinion.

I also believe they are already engaged but I think it happened before Africa.
