Prince Harry's new girlfriend, Meghan Markle was spotted in London on Thursday (10 November) after news broke that the TV star is taking a break from filming USA Network's series Suits because she has "something important to do."

Daily Mail has pictured Markle leaving the Whole Foods store in Kensington with grocery bags with "Alleviating Poverty Worldwide" written on it.

The Suits actor was later seen walking towards her boyfriend's Nottingham Cottage in Kensington Palace. The 35-year-old American actress sported a long blue jacket, leggings and teamed it up with navy blue boots and a brown baseball cap.

Previously, Prince Harry released an official royal statement confirming his relationship with Marke amid "wave of abuse and harassment."

Addressing the social media trolls against Markle, the statement read, "His girlfriend, Meghan Markle, has been subject to a wave of abuse and harassment. Some of this has been very public – the smear on the front page of a national newspaper; the racial undertones of comment pieces; and the outright sexism and racism of social media trolls and web article comments."

"Prince Harry is worried about Ms Markle's safety and is deeply disappointed that he has not been able to protect her. It is not right that a few months into a relationship with him that Ms Markle should be subjected to such a storm. He knows commentators will say this is "the price she has to pay" and that "this is all part of the game". He strongly disagrees. This is not a game – it is her life and his." the statement continued,

Markle, who is known her role as Rachel Zane on the hit USA legal drama Suits, and Harry are reportedly dating since June. Reports suggest that she has already met Harry's father, Prince Charles and that the couple are already serious and "head over heels" in love.
