Prince Harry and Meghan Markle set the media outlets abuzz when they set out for an African holiday three weeks back to celebrate the actress’ birthday. Their trip unfurled widespread speculations that the younger royal would end up popping the question to his ladylove on the trip. Now that the couple has extended their trip, rumors are rife that the engagement is going to take place in December this year, before Christmas.

Couple holidaying in Africa, head to Victoria Falls

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have been holidaying for quite a number of days and the latest on their trip is that they have headed off to Zambia, to the Victoria Falls.

Yes, the couple is spending time at the largest waterfall on the earth which is famous for its scenic beauty and grandeur. This has led many to speculate that the proposal is going to happen at this very magnificent spot. Sources claim that it is the ideal engagement spot and the Royals are known to propose at natural spots.

So, it is very likely that the Prince and the actress would seal their relationship at this very spot. Nevertheless, fans should not expect her to flaunt a ring on her finger after she returns from the trip as the Royals follow an established tradition of making such announcements through a press release and TV appearance. Also, it would happen after a few months because the royal family is scheduled to attend Princess Diana’s twentieth death anniversary functions in some days followed by the platinum wedding anniversary of the Queen and Prince Philip.

Couple to be engaged before Christmas

Insiders are hoping for Prince Harry and Meghan Markle to get engaged before Christmas. They believe that Princess Diana’s death anniversary and the platinum wedding anniversary of the Queen and Prince Philip has made the young couple hold off their engagement. As soon as these events are over, the royal family is expected to make an official announcement about Harry’s engagement and it would very likely be made in the first week of December, before Christmas.

This is because many are of the opinion that the couple would like to spend Christmas together at the Sandringham House. If Prince Harry and the "Suits" actress, Meghan Markle are not engaged, she would have to skip the event as the royal protocol allows only the direct family members of the Queen to attend the event. So, the couple would have to get engaged before Christmas.
