Despite the rampant (and rule-breaking) hand-holding, forehead kissing and general PDA-ing going on between Prince Harry and Meghan Markle at the Toronto Invictus Games, his royal highness has never spoken publicly about his partner – until now.
When meeting former US Air Force Master Sergeant Kyle Burnett yesterday, Prince Harry (possibly inadvertently) publicly acknowledged Meghan Markle for the first time.
“I asked him how his girlfriend was enjoying it and he said, ‘she loves it, she’s loving the games,” Sgt. Burnett told People.
It may not seem like much (and nothing compared to Markle’s enthusiasm in that Vanity Fairinterview) but it’s a definite step in the right direction.
Bring on the royal wedding!
