And we cannot wait
Since Prince Harry and Meghan Markle went public with their relationship last November, there have been countless signs that the Suits actress has been accepted into the royal fold.
Despite being notoriously private about their relationship, with Prince Harry releasing an official letter requesting privacy just weeks after they went public, it seems that the couple are now ready to step out into the open - and the world is rejoicing.
Now it has been announced that Prince Harry and Meghan are set to pass a huge royal relationship milestone this month - making an official appearance together on September 23rd. Yes, really.
It has been announced that the pair will be making their very first official appearance as a couple later this month, attending the Invictus Games in Toronto.
The Games, featuring injured and disabled Servicemen, is the 32-year-old prince's passion project, and considering that it will be held this year in Meghan's hometown, it serves as the perfect location for their first official appearance together.
This news comes just weeks after the 36-year-old actress spoke out about the royal relationship for the first time, in an interview with Vanity Fair.
‘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,’ she told the publication. 'We’re a couple. 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.'
She continued: '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.'
