Prince Harry is fulfilling his obligation to be with his royal family on Christmas Day. As soon as he can, he will hop on a plane and go to see his girlfriend, actress Meghan Markle. She is hosting the Christmas celebration for her family in Canada where she is staying while filming her role in the television series, "Suits."

Royals' three-day celebration

Even though the royals' holiday is a three-day celebration, Prince Harry has permission to skip out on Monday's events. The 32-year-old will spend a traditional Christmas Day at Sandringham estate, but the following day he will leave to be with his 35-year-old actress girlfriend.

Under normal circumstances, Harry would spend time with his family, but he is allowed to break the tradition because Prince William is also leaving to be with the Middletons. Apparently, Queen Elizabeth had second thoughts and has given Prince Harry permission to leave also. It was reported a few days ago that Queen Elizabeth approves of her grandson's relationship with Markle.

Couple spending time together

Harry and Meghan have been spending a lot of time together recently. Earlier this month he visited her in Canada after he finished his 14-day tour.

Then she visited him a few days ago and just left England on December 19. Prince Harry personally escorted her to Heathrow Airport along with a team of five officers. Then the actress was accompanied by airline staff as she boarded her flight.

Previously, it was reported that the young pair wouldn't be together until New Year's Day, but plans have changed and they will be together again on December 26 when Prince Harry meets her in Canada.

They will leave for a private vacation to spend more time together.

The relationship

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have been dating since last June. Their relationship seems to be deepening day by day. Because they are spending so much time together, people are wondering where the relationship is going. It is obvious that they are quite fond of each other. Prince William and Kate Middleton dated for seven years before they became engaged.

They married a year and a half later. At the rate Prince Harry is going, it doesn't look like he is willing to wait that long.
