Celebrity News: The actress said the couple will continue to keep their romance private and will stay away from the paparazzi spotlight. “We are happy,” she confessed.
Meghan Markle, 36, first confessed to Vanity Fair magazine about her relationship with Prince Harry, 32. “We are two people who are very much in love.”
Amid rumors of a possible compromise, one of the protagonist of the hit series “Suits” would be the first American in 81 years to marry a member of the royal family after Wally Simpson, who married in 1937, with Prince Eduardo.
Media coverage of their relationship has so far been “aggressive and unpleasant,” said Markle, of African American origin. “It has its challenges, and it comes in waves—some days it can feel more challenging than others. And right out of the gate it was surprising the way things changed. But I still have this support system all around me, and, of course, my boyfriend’s support. 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.” said the rising actress, commenting on the gossip about his relationship with the grandson of Queen Elizabeth II.
“It’s very simple, we’re in love and very happy together,” said Markle, who admitted that “hanging out with a member of the royalty entails a great challenge.” In turn, she said that they kept their relationship hidden for six months before it comes to light.
The star dismisses for the moment the possibility of appearing in some official act next to the prince. “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. 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” she added.
Last October, Harry issued a statement through Kensington Palace confirming the romance and condemning the media intrusion and attacks his girlfriend had suffered on the networks. He also regretted not being able to be with her to protect her.
The actress said that everything remains the same for her despite this mediatic romance. “I am the same, I have never been defined by a relationship. The people closest to me help me to keep my feet on the ground. Everything else is just background noise.”
This week Prince William and his wife Kate Middleton announced they will be parents for the third time. They are already parents of Charlotte, 2, and George, 4. The new real baby will move Harry to the sixth place in the line of succession to the British throne.
Markle was born in Los Angeles in 1981. Her mother is African-American while her father is of Dutch and Irish descent. She attended Northwestern University, where she specialized in Theater and International Relations. After graduating from the university she worked for the United States Embassy in Buenos Aires.
