It’s gonna happen, folks.
It’s really, truly, finally, actually gonna happen.
Following weeks and weeks of endless rumors surrounding the status of their relationship, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are at last prepared to tell the world they’re engaged.
Numerous insiders have told Us Weekly that the handsome 33-year old quietly asked for his girlfriend’s hand in marriage at some recent point in the past.
However, Harry supposedly wanted to “enjoy the [engagement] before word” leak out, which is why the pair has held off on telling anyone outside their parents.
Still, an official announcement will allegedly be coming soon.
This is approximately the 97th report we’ve found online this fall of Markle and Harry either being engaged or planning to be engaged.
For those wondering what the heck is taking so long, a source explains to this tabloid that it’s actually a safety issue.
Markle is still filming Suits Season 7 and “it would be a security nightmare” if the public knew she was engaged to Harry while she was doing so.
“She’d be followed everywhere [in Toronto],” this friend says.
We guess that makes some sense.
But isn’t she followed everywhere now?
How much difference would it really make if there’s a diamond ring on her finger?
Heck, speculation about the future of Markle and Harry has grown so strong that jewelers are even on record with the type of engagement ring she’ll be receiving.
After shooting on Suits is complete, “she’ll relocate to London for sure,” Us Weekly writes, adding:
There, she’ll be on hand to help map out what one insider refers to as “a detailed media rollout.”
This is how this type of thing typically goes for The Royal Family.
It’s not as if they just appear on the cover of a magazine and scream to the world, “SHE SAID YES!”
Many likely remember how Prince William and Kate Middleton announced their 2010 betrothal in a number of interviews a month after William proposed in Kenya.
We should be using that as an example of what to expect down the line.
Harry and Markle “will most likely hold a small photo call at Kensington Palace, with just one photographer and journalist invited,” says this insider.
“On the same day, they’ll do a TV interview that will be syndicated around the world.”
Don’t be fooled by how quiet the stars have been over the last couple months, either.
They know this is a big deal. They know what they want to do for the announcement and even for the wedding.
“These things are planned early in advance,” Us Weekly concludes.
