Prince Harry's girlfriend Meghan Markle has taken time off from the shooting of the sixth season of the popular US television legal drama, Suits, to visit boyfriend Prince Harry in London. The actress is currently in London and if reports are true then she is staying with beau at Kensington Palace.

According to reports, Markle told her bosses that she has something important to do, which is why she will not be able to shoot the sixth season of Suits for some time. She took off to meet Harry and stayed with him at his Nottingham Cottage pad, situated in the north of the palace grounds. Interestingly, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge – Prince William and Kate Middleton – used to live in the same pad.

Markle was also spotted shopping on Kensington High Street in London. She was initially due to visit London earlier this month, but had to postpone her plans. She is in London to spend time with beau Harry before he leaves for his Caribbean tour.

It is also believed that Markle will meet the royal family during her visit. The Suits actress has already met boyfriend Prince Harry's father Prince Charles and now she is expected to meet his brother William and sister-in-law, Kate. And Kate is also excited to meet Harry's new girlfriend Markle.

"Kate is really keen to see what Meghan is all about," an insider told US Weekly.

Markle and Harry have been dating for a few months now, but they only made it official recently. The palace in a statement announced that Harry and Markle are in a relationship.

"His girlfriend, Meghan Markle, has been subject to a wave of abuse and harassment. Some of this has been very public — the smear on the front page of a national newspaper; the racial undertones of comment pieces; and the outright sexism and racism of social media trolls and web article comments," the palace said addressing the harassment Markle is facing.
