Meghan Markle has met her boyfriend Prince Harry's grandmother Queen Elizabeth after they stopped over on September 2.
The 32-year-old royal has only been dating the 'Suits' actress for just over a year, but it looks like things are getting serious between them as he decided to take the brunette beauty to meet the monarch when they returned from their three-week trip in Botswana and Zambia on September 2.
A source told Us Weekly magazine: "Harry decided to take Meghan to visit as he hadn't been up yet all summer.
"He wanted to introduce Meghan to the queen. It went well. It'll no doubt be the first of many encounters. The entire weekend was a success. He was able to introduce someone he loves to someone he cares for deeply."
The revelation that Meghan, 36, has met Harry's family comes shortly after she said she was "in love" with the prince for the first time in a Vanity Fair magazine interview and admitted the couple are "really happy" together.
But her openness has raised the eyebrows of Harry's late mother Princess Diana's former butler as he doesn't think she should be talking about their romance this early on.
Paul Burrell said recently: "Meghan is in a position where she can't win, and she'll learn that soon. Maybe it was a mistake for her to speak out so early. People are so desperate to learn more about her, but if you open the door a tiny bit to your life, it's hard to close it. Diana said the media was like a wild animal that she tried to tame but would always bite off her hand, and Meghan will learn that too."
