Meghan Markle sparked engagement rumours this week when she tried on wedding dresses in Canada.
While the 35-year-old American actress has been dating Prince Harry for a little more than a year, he has not proposed.
Meghan’s friends say, however, that an engagement is ‘very much in the cards’.
The Suits actress, who is based in Toronto, was shopping for an evening gown in Canada when she decided to try on bridal gowns, a friend told The Sun.
‘She thought it’d be fun,’ the friend said. ‘She was with a couple of friends and they all thought she looked gorgeous.’
One of her choices was a traditional outfit with a strapless bodice made by Toronto-based designer Paloma Blanca, while another was an Augusta Jones dress with lace sleeves, priced at £2,195 ($2,830), the friend said.
A £2,550 ($3,288) midriff-baring gown made by Blanca, was her reportedly favorite – but she joked it wouldn’t work for a royal wedding, according to the friend.
‘She joked she couldn’t walk down the aisle of Westminster Abbey in it,’ her friend said. ‘But the fact she’s trying on dresses and thinking about their wedding shows how serious they are.’
Meghan spent June filming the latest series of Suits, which has seen her spend time away from England and Harry.
She was last seen heading to London from Toronto at the end of June, and in May spent a week in the UK with the Prince, joining him during the evening of Pippa Middleton’s wedding reception.
She is said to be keen for her work commitments to end so that she can relocate to London and live with Harry at Kensington Palace.
The couple are due to spend time together later this year when Harry hosts his charity initiative, The Invictus Games, in Toronto where Meghan has a home.
Harry, 32, and Meghan have been together for a year and speculation has been rife in recent weeks over whether marriage may be in their future.
The prince has recently made his commitment to the star clear in the form of a small gold ring which he gifted to his girlfriend – however, it wasn’t for her ring finger instead designed to be worn on her thumb.
According to sources on the set of her US TV show Suits, Meghan only takes it off to film scenes under the guise of Rachel Zane, her high-achieving paralegal alter ego.
The ring is the latest sign that the Prince is besotted with his long-term girlfriend.
His first gift to her was a blue and white bracelet, which she wears on her left hand. It matches one he himself wears on his right hand.
The 32-year-old Prince has also given Meghan a £5,000 Cartier Love bracelet which is designed to be locked with a screwdriver and rarely taken off and is seen as a sign of commitment.
She also wears a gold Maya Brenner necklace adorned with the initials H and M, as well as a gold arrow ring, which also appears to feature the letter H.
Meghan reportedly rotates her jewellery to give subtle messages to Harry while they are apart – which they have been a lot lately thanks to her filming duties and his heavy schedule of charity work.
