THE QUEEN better have the corgis on their best behavior this week, because an American is apparently skipping Turkey Day to slum it in the mother country with Prince Hot Ginge.
It was reported yesterday that Meghan Markle had left Toronto for London after filming her last season on Suits. And – surprise, surprise – People says it is probably a precursor to a more permanent hop across the pond, since she’s been spotted that way off-and-on for a while now:
“During the last year, Markle has been spotted walking around Prince Harry’s neighborhood in Kensington, carrying Whole Foods shopping bags, picking up flowers and visiting a spa in Soho on the eve of Pippa Middleton’s wedding. But it was an invite to Buckingham Palace for tea with the Queen last month that is most indicative of how serious things are between the two.”
Ha! I love how they refer to Harry’s residence in the same vein as Hagrid’s cottage on the grounds of Hogwarts. Those royals, so silly with their semantics. We heard/speculated of how that tea time went last month, and all I can imagine is Claire Foy in gray hair barking at Meghan to remain standing like she’s Winston Churchill coming over to give the weekly report from Parliament. Come to think of it, that’s probably exactly how THE QUEEN would handle some hussy divorcee who stars on a network with the same name as the country that sailed away and never looked back.
So things with Meghan and Harry are moving along nicely, and UsWeekly reports everyone should get their fascinators ready because Harry has ordered a ring made from diamonds from one of Princess Diana’s old brooches. Meghan is apparently going to live in Harry’s place, which is already decked out in “plants and candles” that she started bringing in to decorate the place last spring. LOLZ. Anyone else getting flashbacks to that Sex and the City episode where Carrie fills Mr. Big’s medicine cabinet with her make-up, tampons, and hair dryer? One succulent too many, Meghan, and he’ll return it all to Toronto in a Harrod’s bag!
A source tells UsWeekly the wedding announcement is expected to come in the new year, adding, “It will definitely be a summer wedding.” That faint scream you hear is my non-existent uterus wailing from realizing it will never house a blue blood. Well, wait – does Burger King count?
