No matter your opinion on the Royal Family, you’ve got to admit that Prince Harry is a pretty sweet guy. In the past, he’s given open and honest interviews about being part of the ruling family of Britain, he’s always looking cheerful when he’s caught out and about, and – just recently – was spotted playing with a cheeky toddler who had decided to pinch some of his popcorn when he wasn’t looking.
In his latest act of pure adorableness, the 33-year-old Prince was caught snuggling up to his girlfriend Meghan Markle during the closing ceremony of the Invictus Games. The couple, who have been together since 2016, hid themselves away in the luxury – and dimly-lit – VIP box for the duration of the event.
This was only the third ever Invictus Games, an event that celebrates those who have been wounded during military service. Prince Harry himself founded the occasion, which this year was held in Toronto, and has formerly taken place in the UK and USA.
‘Harry and Meghan were sitting next to each other, snuggling, kissing, with their arms around each other,’ reported one eyewitness, in an account which sounds like it came straight out of the schoolyard.
‘They sneaked out of the box just minutes before Harry’s closing speech,’ the witness added.
The pair weren’t alone in the box, however. Markle’s best friend, Canadian stylist Jessica Mulroney, was also there, as was Markus Anderson – the man who originally introduced her to Harry.
Doria Ragland, Markle’s mother, made an appearance, too, having flown over from the USA especially for the occasion. This was actually the first time that the Prince has been spotted with Markle’s family – indicating that the pair are making some big steps in their relationship.
Things are moving pretty quickly it seems, especially as the two only made their first public appearance together as a couple a week ago. They were snapped holding hands and looking laid back as they spent their time in and around the area where the games are being held.
Plus, this latest sighting comes just after the Prince was spotted chilling out with another famous face at the sporting event. As well as literally rubbing shoulders with his girlfriend, Harry was also seen cozying up to President Obama during the basketball. They were accompanied by former VP Joe Biden, as well as his wife, Jill.
According to Hayler Stover, an 18-year-old student who was lucky enough to get a seat next to the Prince, Obama enquired after Harry’s girlfriend while they were watching the game.
‘I did hear Obama ask about Meghan and Harry just let him know she had been to watch the tennis with him,’ she said.
‘Harry was really smiling when he said it. He looked really happy, it was cute. Obama asked how she was just after half way into the game.
‘Obama just asked about her filming [Suits] and how it was going, and then Harry asked about Michelle and how she was doing. Then Harry said, send my love to Michelle.’
It certainly seems like love is in the air for Harry and Meghan. Who knows where they’ll be by the next Invictus Games?
