It’s been a year since this royal romance between Prince Harry and actress Meghan Markle came about. Since then we have seen a few photos of the pair together in Toronto, London and at a friends wedding, but not a word from either one of them.
Markle is finally speaking out about their love in the October issue of Vanity Fair.
“We’re a couple,” she said. “We’re in love. I’m sure there will be a time when we will have to come forward and present ourselves and have stories to tell, but I hope what people will understand is that this is our time. This is for us. It’s part of what makes it so special that it’s just ours. But we’re happy. Personally, I love a great love story.”
Six months into their romance the duo had been subjected to press harassment forcing Prince Harry to release a statement confirming their relationship and asking for respect.
“I can tell you that at the end of the day I think it’s really simple: We’re two people who are really happy and in love,” Markle says. “We were very quietly dating for about six months before it became news, and I was working during that whole time, and the only thing that changed was people’s perception. Nothing about me changed. I’m still the same person that I am, and I’ve never defined myself by my relationship.”
Prince Harry was a known English Bachelor, and Markle was married before, but now these two have found each other and maybe a royal wedding is in their future.
