Check out Prince Harry's girlfriend Meghan Markle in London gangster film Anti-Social

Prince Harry’s girlfriend Meghan Markle has appeared in newly released pictures from London-based 2015 gangster movie Anti-Social.

US actress Meghan, 35, plays fashion model Kirsten, who embarks on a whirlwind romance with graffiti artist Dee, played by English actor Gregg Sulkin.

Based on three highly publicised real-life crimes, including the Graff Diamonds robbery in 2009, Anti-Social sees Dee and Kirsten’s relationship develop while Dee’s brother, a diamond thief, ignites a gangland war over a wave of daredevil raids.

The movie also stars UK grime artist and Mercury Prize winner Skepta, and was directed by Reg Traviss, former partner of late singer Amy Winehouse.

Meghan filmed her scenes in the English capital over a year before she embarked on a romance with Harry.

The couple are believed to have struck up a relationship earlier this year while he visited Toronto, Canada, where Markle lives and works on US drama series Suits.

The new images of Meghan have been unveiled ahead of a special edition DVD release of the film in the UK and Ireland next month.

Reg said the new version of the film, which he created to delve deeper into one of the storylines, “focuses much more on the criminal underworld threats of the story” and “aims to appeal to an international audience”.

Harry, 32, and Meghan’s relationship began this summer and it was officially confirmed last week by his communications secretary, Jason Knauf, in a strongly worded statement which described the “wave of abuse and harassment” she has experienced since rumours surfaced a few weeks ago.

Mr Knauf said the actress had experienced “the smear on the front page of a national newspaper; the racial undertones of comment pieces; and the outright sexism and racism of social media trolls and web article comments”.
