Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s relationship is basically the storyline of a rom-com.

Beautiful American actress meets British prince… Yep, we can totally see that being made into a Hollywood blockbuster. Meghan could even play herself.

It’s a Christmas miracle. We wonder if Harry will play the drums at their wedding?
