While the TV star has remained tight-lipped about her royal romance, the 36-year-old finally opened up about Prince Harry in an interview with Vanity Fair. "We're two people who are really happy and in love. We were very quietly dating for about six months before it became news, and I was working during that whole time, and the only thing that changed was people's perception. Nothing about me changed," Meghan said. "I'm still the same person that I am, and I've never defined myself by my relationship."
She added: "We're a couple, we're in love. I'm sure there will be a time when we will have to come forward and present ourselves and have stories to tell, but I hope what people will understand is that this is our time."

The Mail on Sunday reported that the British Prince and his girlfriend will attend the Invictus Games in Toronto, Canada, where Meghan is based for work, later this month.
The Paralympic-style sporting event, which was created by Harry in 2014, is set to take place from September 22 to 30. Kensington Palace confirmed that the Prince, who celebrates his 33rd birthday on Friday (September 15), will give speeches at both the opening and closing ceremonies. Harry will also visit training sessions and watch participants competing in all 12 sports, including athletics, cycling and wheelchair basketball.
