Princess Diana's personal chef, Darren McGrady, predicted that Prince Harry might probably pop the question to Meghan Markle before the year ends. In his interview with HELLO! Online, the Kensington Palace staff suggested December could be the perfect month for the couple to get engaged.

Harry and Meghan ready for royal wedding?

Darren McGrady explained that the couple cannot trump Princess Diana's 20th death anniversary on August 31 or Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip's platinum wedding anniversary on November 20. Therefore, Prince Harry and Meghan Markle will have to delay their engagement until December for them to get married in 2018.

"I think that's what's going to happen," Darren McGrady said. "Meghan can join the royals at Sandringham at Christmas because she'll be engaged and part of the fold."

The famous chef went on to commend the "Suits" actress and gushed about how she is compatible to the British royals. Darren McGrady thought Prince Harry had found someone who is like Princess Diana.

Harry celebrates first anniversary with Meghan in Africa

The two were first mired in dating rumors in October 2016. Although both parties refused to confirm nor deny these reports, eagle-eyed fans spotted Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's matching beaded bracelet in the wake of the dating controversy.

The British royal was the first to break his silence regarding his rumored relationship with the Hollywood actress.

In November, Prince Harry stepped out to defend Meghan Markle from online abuse and harassment. Shortly after their romance was made public, the "Fringe" actress was spotted at Kensington Palace where her beau is residing.

The prince was seen in Toronto on several occasions where he spent time with his girlfriend. The actress was formally introduced to Kate Middleton in January.

According to reports, the 36-year-old actress has been spending most of her free time in London to support her beau in his public activities. In fact, Meghan Markle was present at the Audi Polo Challenge where Prince Harry competed for the benefit of WellChild and Sentebale in May.

She was also present at the reception of Pippa Middleton's wedding to James Mattews.

Meanwhile, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry were recently in Africa to celebrate their first anniversary just a few weeks shy of a full year. The British royal also prepared a small birthday bash for his girlfriend who turned 36 on August 4.

Despite latest reports about their possible engagement this year, both parties have remained tight-lipped about the matter.
