Meghan Markle and Prince Harry have managed to keep their private relationship a secret for sometime, but now that the cat's out of the bag, we've learned a little bit more about their growing love.

It turns out that the actress and redheaded royal are already getting serious, and that Prince Harry might already be thinking about the next step: engagement. "It wouldn't surprise me if he's already thinking about engagement just because that's where his head goes but that's not where the relationship is at right now," a source told E! News.

"This is totally Harry. The problem with Harry is when he falls, he falls hard. He goes in big time."

The idea of dating or even marrying royalty might seem overwhelming, but Markle wouldn't be the first.
