After the wedding the royal couple will live at Nottingham Cottage at Kensington Palace in London. Soon after the announcement of Engagement, the actress wrapped up her role in the legal drama Suits. Markle said that she is leaving her acting career behind to begin a new life with her love. Ms Markle will be baptised into the Church of England and confirmed before the wedding. Prince Harry, fifth in line to the throne and Markle have been dating since July 2016 and made their first public appearance as a couple in September.
The duo remained mum on the affair rumours but a major hint dropped when Markle posted a picture wearing an almost similar bracelet that was worn by Harry. This sparked speculations that the prince might have gifted this to his ladylove. Reports suggest that the couple first met via a common friend.
