Could Prince Harry be joined by Meghan Markle at mental health charity appearance?
MEGHAN Markle has royal watchers in a spin as they believe she could appear alongside Prince Harry when he attends a Heads Together event today.
Prince Harry, 33, is hosting a reception at St James’ Palace alongside Prince William this morning, celebrating the impact of their mental health charity Heads Together.
And the pair will be joined by the Duchess of Cambridge for an evening reception at Buckingham Palace marking Kate’s first appearance since she announced she was expecting a third royal baby.
Reports suggest Meghan Markle could join her beau for a first public appearance in Britain, in a strong hint the couple are heading for an engagement, according to the Daily Star.
Meghan has previously shied away from major events so as not to draw attention from their cause, with the Suits actress turning up late and privately to Pippa Middleton’s wedding this year.
But she made her first, very affectionate, public appearance with Prince Harry at the Invictus Games in Toronto last month, where they were spotted kissing in the stands.
The Invictus Games was the third time the Suits actress appeared in public at the same time as her boyfriend, despite the pair trying to keep their romance under wraps for the last 14 months.
American-born Meghan also brought her mother, Doria Ragland, along to the sporting competition, founded by the prince to help wounded servicemen.
If Meghan does choose to join Harry today, it will further intensify speculation the pair are soon to take their relationship to the next level with an announcement of an engagement.
The pair have been dating for over a year now, and sources suggest the 36-year-old will quit the US-legal drama Suits to tie the knot to her royal beau.
It is also hoped the Duchess of Cambridge will be able to keep her commitment to the public appearance this evening, after having to cancel previous appointments due to severe morning sickness, hyperemesis gravidarum.
William, Kate and Harry have supported the issue of mental health with their Heads Together campaign that has been encouraging people to speak out about their psychological problems or be a sympathetic ear for others.
The charity was the chosen official cause of the London Marathon, and featured on a BBC documentary Mind over Marathon, which saw people with mental health issues try to overcome their battles by running the race in April.
