Prince Harry and his American Girlfriend, Meghan Markle made their first ever formal public appearance together on Monday 25th September. The couple sat together holding hands while watching a wheelchair table tennis match at the Invictus Games in Toronto.
It will be recalled that Markle, a star in the TV legal drama “Suits” and Prince Harry were seen together at the Invictus Games opening ceremony at the weekend, but they sat about a dozen seats and a few rows apart from each other. Markle was sat just a few feet away from the Queen’s grandson, who was accompanied by US First Lady Melania Trump while Harry was seated a quarter of a stadium away, occupying a VIP box alongside Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, US First Lady Melania Trump and Ukraine’s President Poroshenko although Harry seemed unable to keep his eyes off his beautiful girlfriend and was spotted glancing down towards her seat on a number of occasions..
The couple, who wore jeans and sunglasses on Monday, appeared relaxed in each other’s company and leaned over several times to share whispered comments and smiles, they also chatted with spectators in the seats around them.
Although Markle has been seen and photographed on several occasions near Kensington Palace where Harry lives, this is the first time anyone is seeing them together in public.
The couple’s step into the public eye is sure to fuel rumors and speculations that an engagement is imminent. Merkle recently revealed her love for the prince in an interview with Vanity fair.
The Invictus Games, a project close to Prince Harry’s heart is the perfect venue for their first formal appearance; the games fielded more than 500 injured service members from different countries competing in a dozen sports activities.
