Almost from the day the world learned they were dating, rumors that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are secretly engaged have been circulating non-stop on social media.
Royal watchers seem split on the issue, with one side arguing that Harry has yet to pop the question, and the other insisting he’s already put a ring on it, and he and Meg are just waiting for the right time to make an announcement.
Whatever the case, the latest news on Meg’s career is sure to bolster theories that the couple will be publicly taking the next step sometime before the year is out.
According to The Daily Mail, Meghan has quit her job on the USA network legal drama Suits in order to turn her attention toward her upcoming wedding and future royal duties.
Sources close to production tell the newspaper that Meghan has informed her bosses she won’t be returning for the show’s eighth season, and is instead planning to relocate to the UK in December.
Many have already jumped to the conclusion that Markle’s departure date is an indication of a holiday wedding.
“Meghan knows she can’t really act at the same time as being a princess and is happy to make this career sacrifice,” an insider tells the Mail.
As for how she’ll spend her time after leaving Hollywood behind, the source says Markle plans to carry on the proud royal tradition of philanthropy:
“She really enjoys her charity work with Unicef and will broaden out her charity commitments when she becomes a full-time royal,” the insider claims.
A different tipster says Meghan’s decision to essentially leave her career behind is every bit as significant as it seems:
“Her decision to give up the biggest role of her career would mean a lot,” says the source.
As for exactly when Harry and Meghan are planning to get married, there’s still no official word.
But of course, there have been plenty of theories.
“They’ve spoken about their marriage plans openly with each other, and friends and family around them are pretty much thinking about wedding attire already,” says one insider.
Yes, it appears even Harry’s inner circle is still in the dark about when he and Meg are planning to tie the knot.
We’re starting to think these two are just enjoying keeping a secret.
We don’t blame them.
Pretty much every aspect of their lives will be public from here on out.
