Meghan Markle: Is THIS proof Prince Harry will propose during romantic African getaway?
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry are currently enjoying a romantic holiday in Africa, and new evidence they are getting engaged on the trip has emerged
Meghan, 36, celebrated her birthday on Friday, and the she flew to Africa with Prince Harry, 32, to celebrate.
Harry described Africa as one of the most important places in the world to him earlier this year, and said: “I first came in 1997, straight after my mum died. My dad told my brother and me we were going to Africa to get away from it all.
“This is where I feel more like myself than anywhere else in the world. I have this intense sense of complete relaxation and normality here.”
Given the way he feels about the continent, it would come as no surprise if he followed in his brother’s footsteps and chose to propose to Meghan there.
And it seems the bookies agree, with the odds on an engagement between the pair slashed over the weekend.
Ladbrokes cut the odds to 6/4 on Saturday, claiming they have insider knowledge the proposal will come during this trip.
Jessica Bridge, of Ladbrokes, said: “It’s a case of when and not if Harry pops the question and royal punters are convinced it will be while the happy couple are on holiday.”
Coral put the odds on at 1/4 after a flurry of bets over the weekend as punters become more and more convinced of a royal engagement.

The couple are 1/2 to marry in 2018, 2/1 for a wedding to take place this year and 6/1 for it to occur in 2019.
William Hill said it was odds-on at 2/5 that the pair will tie the knot next year, and 5/6 to have a child before the end of 2019.
Whether or not the couple to get engaged, the holiday to Africa is set too be magical for the pair.
A royal source told The Sun: “Harry has been planning this holiday for a long time.
“He’s made the trip incredibly romantic. They’ll go on boats across the lake, walk in the bush at dawn and camp under the stars.
“Harry regards Africa as his spiritual home and has often talked of how he can get away from it all there.
“Who knows what will happen when they’re watching a sensational African sunset together? Maybe he’ll get down on one knee.”
Meghan and Prince Harry were photographed on the tarmac at the airport as they headed off on their holiday, with Harry giving bystanders a wave.
