The Odds of Prince Harry proposing to Meghan Markle have been slashed after he whisked his actress girlfriend away to Africa for a romantic safari.

The odds of Harry proposing to Meghan during the safari holiday to Africa are now at even money, according to online betting company Betfair.
Betfair spokeswoman Katie Baylis said: “It’s the most anticipated proposal in years and it seems as though the world has been waiting for Prince Harry to pop the question since the couple met.
“With so much speculation already that he will propose this year, we have it at even money that he will do so on this trip.”
After Meghan and Harry headed to Africa, Ladbrokes cut the odds to 6/4 that Harry will propose to the Suits actress while on holiday.
Jessica Bridge, of Ladbrokes, said: “It’s a case of when, and not if, Harry pops the question and royal punters are convinced it will be when the happy couple are on holiday.”
At the weekend, Harry and Meghan were odds-on at 1/4 with bookmaker Coral to get engaged this year after the firm saw a flurry of bets.
The couple were 1/2 to marry in 2018, 2/1 for a wedding to take place this year and 6/1 for the proposal to take place in 2019.
Meanwhile, William Hill said it was odds-on at 2/5 that the pair will tie the knot next year.

“My dad told my brother and me to pack our bags—we were going to Africa to get away from it all,” he told Town & Country in their February cover story.
“My brother and I were brought up outdoors. We appreciate nature and everything about it. This is where I feel more like myself than anywhere else in the world.”
