Earlier this week, it was reported that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle actually got engaged earlier than we thought, after falling in love pretty much instantly on their sweet first date.

This was revealed in an extract of their much-talked about unauthorised biography by royal correspondents and authors Omid Scobie and Carolyn Durand, named Finding Freedom.

According to the book, the couple actually got engaged in August 2017, before announcing it to the world in November 2017.

Now royal fans are saying that an outfit she wore at the Invictus Games in Toronto in September of that year might have been a hint, though it's admittedly a little far fetched.

She attended the games with Harry, and wore one of her signature white shirt and jeans outfit. The white shirt was by her designer friend Misha Nonoo, and is one of her best-selling styles.

It also happens to be called 'the husband' shirt, which is why fans are saying it was a subtle hint at their engagement.

Of course this could all be a coincidence, but given that Meghan likes to wear piece of jewellery with a special significance, it may also be a sign.

Although she's always loved fashion - she used to create scrapbooks of her favourite trends and looks, including Sienna Miller and Kate Moss' boho phase - her first job was at, sourcing the best deals for everything from restaurants to designer sales.

However she quit after two years to follow her true passion, fashion journalism, and after many years of internships and freelance stints at magazines including Red, Cosmopolitan, Stylist and Good Housekeeping, landed her dream job as the Digital Fashion Editor at Marie Claire UK.

Her favourite part of the job is discovering new brands and meeting designers, and travelling the world to attend events and fashion shows. Seeing her first Chanel runway IRL at Paris Fashion Week was a true pinch-me moment.
