Why Seeing Prince Harry Hold Hands with Meghan Markle Is Such a Big Deal

    After over a year of dating, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle sent fans speculating that an engagement could be on the horizon when they were spotted holding hands at their first public outing as a couple.

I believe an engagement is imminent, she tells PEOPLE.

Meghan would very much have taken his lead under the circumstances. And while Meier admits that there is no formal protocol against showing PDA at events, it is rare to se...

UK set to be hit by SUPERSTORM bringing gale force winds

    Britain looks set to be battered by the remains of Hurricane Maria and debris from Hurricane Lee as the two storms speed across the North Atlantic, forecasters have warned. Maria is currently moving in a northerly direction off the east coast of the USA, and is likely to pick up turbulent weather from Hurricane Lee. At least 25 people have been killed by the deadly hurricane, and forecasters believe the two will merge to form a superstorm across the Atlantic. This is likely to be picked up by the jet stream and swept towards the British Isles and northern Europe, with the potent cocktail predicted to reach an area close to the UK on Monday. Western areas are likely to be hit by the worst of the storm, with some forecasts indicating winds could be gale force. It means condi...
