Did Prince Harry and Meghan Markle just set their wedding date?

Earlier this week, it was reported that Markle moved out of her Toronto apartment and is settling im with boyfriend Prince Harry at his cottage in Kensington Palace.

A Ladbrokes spokesman told MailOnline, "Royal watchers would love a Christmas engagement announcement, and as far as we're concerned it's coming imminently".

Vanity Fair also reports that last October, Meghan met with the Queen for some tea and she was given the Royal thumbs up. "Wishing you all the happiness in the world Bella".

Markle's body-double in Suits Nicky Bursic has basically confirmed that she is quitting the show.

US Weekly exclusively reports that Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have already penciled in their wedding date for the summer 2018 and their engagement announcement around January of the same year.

Then, Clarence House first released a statement saying that William and Kate would be Wednesday the next year before the couple gave a TV interview later that day and posed for photos at St James's Palace.

Markle has also reportedly had an official tea with Queen Elizabeth and Prince Harry and given her seal of approval.

Meanwhile, the actress is allegedly living at the Nottingham Cottage, in the wing reserved for Prince Harry's residence in Kensington Palace, where Prince William and Kate Middleton now live.

Meghan and Harry first met in July of previous year but the relationship wasn't officially confirmed by the palace until November when it issued a statement asking the media to give the actress privacy. Paddy Power is still taking bets on a number of Prince Harry/Meghan Markle topics.

According to the same source, the Royal Family is preparing to make the big announcement soon.
