Prince Harry is rumoured to be dating Meghan Markle. Kate Middleton's brother-in-law and the Suits actress reportedly met when the royal was in Toronto, where the American TV legal drama is filmed, to promote the 2017 Invictus Games in May.

A source told Britain's Express: "He's happier than he's been for many years. They are taking each week as it comes and just enjoying each other's company but it's fair to say that they love seeing each other and there's a definite chemistry between them. Harry has been desperate to keep the relationship quiet because he doesn't want to scare Meghan off. He knows things will change when their romance is public knowledge but he also knows he can't keep it a secret for long."

"It's too early to say if the relationship will lead to anything long-term but who knows?" the insider added. "At the moment they are just taking it a step at a time and seeing how things develop."

The source continued: "William and Kate really liked her and she fitted in straight away. Meghan is a very confident and intelligent woman and she's not overawed mixing with royalty. That's one of the things Harry admires about her."

During an interview with Sky News' royal correspondent Rhiannon Mills, Prince Harry, who has been voted among the world's most eligible bachelors, spoke of his desire to have children. He said: "There comes times when you think now is the time to settle down, or now is not, whatever way it is but I don't think you can force these things, it will happen when it's going to happen."

"Of course I would love to have kids right now but there's a process that one has to go through and tours like this are great fun, hopefully I'm doing all right by myself, it would be great to have someone else next to me to share the pressure, but you know, time will come and whatever happens, happens," Harry added.
