Prince Harry's girlfriend Meghan Markle 'staying with him at Kensington Palace'

Prince Harry’s girlfriend Meghan Markle has been spotted in London amid unconfirmed reports she is enjoying her first stay at Kensington Palace since their relationship was made public.

The Canadian, who stars in hit US television series Suits, is believed to have travelled to the UK to spend time with the prince at his London home.

Reports in America said the 35-year-old broke off from filming to cross the Atlantic to meet up with the prince, telling bosses she had “something important to do”.

She was pictured shopping on Kensington High Street before returning to the palace nearby.

Bookmakers are offering odds on when the pair will first be seen in public together, with Harry expected to be in the royal box at Twickenham stadium on Saturday for the rugby match between England and South Africa.

He will lead the nation in remembrance on Friday as he lays a wreath at the National Memorial Arboretum.

On Thursday, Harry made his first appearance since their relationship was made public, visiting Westminster Abbey’s Field of Remembrance.

His relationship with Meghan, which began in the summer, was officially confirmed on Tuesday by his communications secretary, Jason Knauf, in a strongly-worded statement which described the “wave of abuse and harassment” she has experienced since rumours the couple were dating surfaced.

The depth of Harry’s feelings for his girlfriend were revealed in the statement that the Prince was “worried about Ms Markle’s safety” and “deeply disappointed that he has not been able to protect her”.
