Prince Harry is reportedly planning to propose to girlfriend Meghan Markle. The royal is said to be hoping to pop the question later this year.

"Harry has found the girl he wants to spend the rest of his life with," one of his friends told the Daily Mail. "He is fuelling all the talk about the future."

Another source said, "There's no question they are madly in love. Harry is really happy, and from seeing them together I'd say it's just a question of when, not if, he's going to ask her to marry him."

Harry, who has been dating the Suits star for close to a year, is reportedly looking to ask her to marry him before he celebrates his 33rd birthday on 15 September.

It is said that Harry, who is fifth in line to the throne, will have to ask his grandmother The Queen for a date to avoid clashes with other dates in the Royal calendar.

The development comes just days after the brunette beauty was reportedly spotted trying on wedding dresses while she was out shopping in Canada. The 35-year-old actress is said to have checked out evening frocks for herself and bridal gowns as well.

"She thought it'd be fun. She was with a couple of friends and they all thought she looked gorgeous," a source told The Sun.

"She joked she couldn't walk down the aisle of Westminster Abbey in it. But the fact she's trying on dresses and thinking about their wedding shows how serious they are," the source added.
