At 33 years of age, Prince Harry has had plenty of ups-and-downs in his love life. He has dated a bevy of beautiful ladies, but none having "the right stuff" to become his princess.
Never one to do things the conventional way, Harry had a knack for choosing partners who would not fit in with the very proper Royal way of doing things.
In this month's issue of People magazine, a Royal insider reveals, "I don’t think Harry was ever going to marry a nice upper-class girl from the [English] counties—it’s just not him.”
Enter American actress, Meghan Markle, aged 36 and star of a hit U.S. TV show. To hear Harry tell it, it was all over but the shouting when he first laid eyes on the beauty.
Since the announcement of their engagement, the world has gotten to know Harry's bride-to-be and a few things have become quite evident. From their public appearances, one thing is clear:
The two are hopelessly in love and enjoy each other's company immensely. But what about in those private moments that we don't see? Everyone wants to know how Harry and Meghan REALLY get along.
“She is definitely the one wearing the trousers in their relationship,” a royal insider tells PEOPLE in this week’s issue. “She is a strong, opinionated woman who has her own ideas about things, and that’s one of the things he loves about her.”
Let's just hope that, as the years wear on, this dynamic remains satisfactory to both Harry and Meghan. After all, we are all counting on a "Happily Ever After" for these two!
