Secret engagement is not unheard of in the British Royal Family. In October, 2010 Prince William, Prince Harry’s elder brother and second in line to the throne, secretly popped the question to Catherine Middleton while they were on vacation in Kenya.
The Daily mail has reported that Prince Harry, 32, may have followed in his elder brother’s footsteps by proposing to his American girlfriend, Meghan Markle, 35, secretly. Romance between Prince Harry and his actress girlfriend was confirmed severally weeks ago when Kensington Palace released a statement asking the press to respect Markle’s privacy.
Prince Harry was criticised by the media and some members of the public when he detoured to visit his girlfriend in Canada instead of flying back to the UK after travelling in Caribbean on an official visit this month. There are now reports that his girlfriend has moved to the Kensington Palace, official residence of Prince Harry, probably on a visit.
The couple were spotted together Wednesday night wearing matching beanie hat and winter coats as they went to watch The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time at the Gielgud Theatre in London. Curious Incident acknowledged the Prince’s presence by twitting “We were delighted to welcome HRH Prince Harry to last night’s performance at The Gielgud Theatre in London’s West End.”
