It was a night at the museum for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle. The British royal arranged a private after-hours tour of London’s Natural History Museum for his leading lady on March 12. The Suits actress reportedly expressed an interest in visiting the iconic attraction, of which Harry’s sister-in-law, Kate Middleton, is a patron. “Meg had always wanted to go so Harry arranged a private visit. It's quite romantic after dark as all the exhibits, including the dinosaurs, are all still lit up. And of course, they had it to themselves,” a source told The Sun.

Meghan flew from Toronto, where she is currently based for her USA Network show, into London last Thursday. The Hollywood star is due back in Canada once filming for Suits resumes in April. A source close to the show previously told HOLA!'s sister brand HELLO!, "It will definitely be hard for her to film Suits and continue building her relationship with Harry." For the time being, the 35-year-old has been spending time with Harry, 32, at his Kensington Palace home. Discussing the pair’s relationship, a source revealed to the Sun, "They're trying to spend as much time together as possible as Meg has filming commitments over the spring and summer. But she feels that a move to London is inevitable as their relationship becomes more serious." The insider added, "They spend a lot of time watching movies at Harry's and cooking new dishes. Meg is a great cook and sends Harry out to posh food shops. She has even added a few feminine touches such as scented candles and soft furnishings."
Meghan, who recently enjoyed a romantic getaway to Jamaica with her Prince for Harry’s pal’s wedding, opened up to Allure magazine in a “women of color” feature celebrating beauty and diversity. The biracial actress, whose father is Caucasian and mother is African American, shared, “I have the most vivid memories of being seven years old and my mom picking me up from my grandmother’s house. There were the three of us, a family tree in an ombré of mocha next to the caramel complexion of my mom and light-skinned, freckled me. I remember the sense of belonging, having nothing to do with the color of my skin. It was only outside the comforts of home that the world began to challenge those ideals.”

“I took an African-American studies class at Northwestern where we explored colorism; it was the first time I could put a name to feeling too light in the black community, too mixed in the white community. For castings, I was labeled ‘ethnically ambiguous.’ Was I Latina? Sephardic? ‘Exotic Caucasian’? Add the freckles to the mix and it created quite the conundrum,” she continued. However Meghan, whose royal beau also has freckles, embraced advice given to her by her father. She said, “To this day, my pet peeve is when my skin tone is changed and my freckles are airbrushed out of a photo shoot. For all my freckle-faced friends out there, I will share with you something my dad told me when I was younger: ‘A face without freckles is a night without stars.’ ”
