Prince Harry is getting serious about his relationship with Meghan Markle. The British royal is reportedly planning to marry the Suits actress by the year end.

According to a report in Life & Style magazine, the royal wants to tie the knot in the Caribbean, after getting inspired by attending the Jamaican wedding of his best friend Tom Inskipp and Lara Hughes-Young. A source said: "He was blown away by the romantic setting and told friends he wants his own wedding to have a similar feel."

"The couple made it official, telling friends they've decided to tie the knot in the Caribbean just before Christmas," the insider added.

Markle has "always dreamed of a beach wedding and they're determined to make their wedding as romantic and intimate as possible."

Princess Diana's second son and Markle reportedly met when the royal was in Toronto, where the American TV legal drama is filmed, to promote the 2017 Invictus Games in May 2016. Adding on, the dating rumours thickened when the American beauty was pictured wearing a bracelet almost identical to Prince Harry. Adding on, the couple were also spotted on a romantic date at Soho House in London, confirming their relationship.

If the couple's relationship works out, this will be second marriage for Markle, who was previously married to Trevor Engleson in 2011. The two divorced in 2013.
