How Prince Harry won over Meghan Markle



Prince Harry reportedly won over his rumoured new girlfriend Meghan Markle after he whisked her off to a luxury Hollywood mansion.

The royal is said to have ‘sealed the deal’ during the weekend at his friend’s pad in Los Angeles back in mid-July.

A friend said: “Harry sealed the deal in style. Before they went to LA she’d been flattered about being chased by a prince.

“She is very outgoing and chatty and was basically giggling about it all.

“But after that break Meghan became very secretive and shut down any mention of Harry. It had suddenly got serious,” they added to The Sun .

Following their weekend in Los Angeles they didn’t see each other again until the divorcee spent time at Balmoral for Harry’s 32nd birthday, but the royal is said to have known she was in it for the ‘long haul’ following their weekend in Hollywood.

The Queen was also reportedly at the Scottish estate at the time of their visit, but was hosting Theresa May.

However, she did meet Prince Charles, with a source telling the newspaper: “It’s very significant. She met Charles and he was charmed by her. She was a real hit.”

Meanwhile, Meghan will probably be left blushing when she finds out she features on adult site Pornhub as thousands watch her steamy scenes from Suits.

Scenes of her stripping off and straddling co-star Patrick J Adams, and in lacy underwear, have been watched more than 40,000 times on the X-rated site.

Days after their rumoured relationship hit the headlines, Meghan’s sister Samantha hit out at her sibling, calling her “shallow”, “narcissistic” and driven by “social climbing”.

Samantha, who lives in Florida, claimed their father Tom has known for five months that Meghan is dating Harry but kept quiet.

Mum-of-three Samantha, who was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in 2008, claimed Meghan has always wanted to be a princess and preferred Prince Harry because she has a “soft spot for gingers”.

But Samantha also said Meghan’s behaviour is “not befitting of a Royal Family member”.

Meghan is narcissistic and selfish,” she said. “I think the Royal Family would be appalled.”

The actress and Harry were rumoured to have met earlier this year, with divorcee Meghan making several low-key visits to London to see Harry, where she has not only met his friends but also Prince William and Kate.

A source said: “He’s happier than he’s been for many years. He’s in a very relaxed period of his life and Meghan has come along at the right time.”

The Toronto-based star shares several interests with the prince, including charitable work.

They also have mutual friends, including Violet Von Westenholz and Arthur Landon.

Meghan was most recently in the UK this month, staying at private members club Soho Farmhouse in the Oxfordshire countryside.
