Prince Harry plans on spending a lot of time in Toronto this year, hmm…

Prince Harry, during a visit to an England Rugby Squad training session at Twickenham Stadium in London

Here are a few photos of Prince Harry at Twickenham Stadium last Friday. He visited the England Rugby Squad training session, because he’s the patron of the Rugby Football Union now. He seemed to be enjoying himself, although it was probably difficult for him to pry himself away from his live-in girlfriend Meghan Markle. Meghan, as we’ve documented so many times, is living in Harry’s shag-pad, Nottingham Cottage. Meghan’s been staying there since just after Christmas, and she’s apparently planning on staying there until April, which is when she’s due back in Toronto to film the new season of Suits. She’ll have to be in Toronto for months, probably. By my guess, maybe four or five solid months. So what will they do to see each other? Turns out, Harry has a plan. He’s scheduling lots of “meetings” in Toronto and he’ll be making lots of trips. By that I mean “booty calls.”

Prince Harry is will be spending more time in Toronto with actress girlfriend Meghan Markle as he focuses his charitable interests in Canada. The Prince will be heading across the Atlantic in the coming months to plan his Invictus Games which will take place in September. But the charity event which helps veterans will also give him time to cultivate his blossoming relationship with the Suits actress.

According to insiders Harry, 32, is fully hands-on with the Invictus Games which will be hosted in the city where his girlfriend lives. And he plans to spend an increasing amount of time in the Commonwealth nation this summer as he attends meetings to ensure the games is a huge success.

Harry is popular in Canada and he has been visiting regularly ever since meeting his 35-year-old girlfriend last year.

A source said: “Harry has a lot on his agenda over the coming months but will be very hands-on with organising the Invictus Games. He will be working with the local organising committee to ensure that everything goes smoothly. He’s a huge fan of Toronto and has had nothing but support from everyone involved. Of course it will also give him a legitimate reason to spend more time with Meghan, he’s truly smitten.”

The third Invictus Games will be held in Toronto from September 26 to 30, 2017. However a number of meetings of the organising committee have been set up in advance which Harry has committed to attending.

[From Express]

I do feel a little bit bad for side-eyeing Harry’s Toronto plans, or dismissing them as mere excuses for international booty calls. The Invictus Games is Harry’s baby, and he’s incredibly involved with organizing them, so it is a completely legit reason to repeatedly visit Toronto. But yeah, he’s probably going to be staying with Meghan the whole time.

Meanwhile, the British tabloids still say that the Queen hasn’t met Meghan. Harry does have to get his grandmother’s permission to marry, and the Queen won’t give her permission without meeting the divorced American! *clutches royal pearls*

    I don’t think Harry is handsome but I bet he has a big D! Get it girl!

  2. Digital Unicorn (aka Betti) says:

    Good for him.

    I guess this explains Waity’s recent ‘make up make over’ – the relative positive PR these 2 are getting has put her and Carole’s noses out of joint. And if Lainey Gossips blind item is about Waity and Meghan then it will be interesting to see how it plays out in the press. You just know that the Middleton Mafia will get their claws out at some point.

    • detritus says:

      People are saying Meghan is prettier, and I’m sure they have noticed. Hence the line drops about her outshining actresses and the new ‘makeup’.
      They are already peeved, Kate NEEDS to be the hot cool one. If Meghan comes in and takes her ‘spot’ with the two princes, she is going to be miserable.

      • Digital Unicorn (aka Betti) says:

        Waity’s problem has always been about control – she has to be the Queen bee calling the shots. She’s always put herself at the centre of attention/limelight. Its part of the MIddleton pushiness – they have to be in the centre of things pulling the strings.

    • zinjojo says:

      I saw Lainey’s blind item yesterday and couldn’t put it together because I was thinking Hollywood celebs, not the BRF. But now it makes perfect sense! Bwahahahaha…

  3. Megan says:

    Good for Harry. I hope they get engaged soon.

    • HeidiM says:

      I’m guessing he’ll have excellent taste in rings. And since he won’t be relying on the Diana Ring, he’ll actually spend some $$$ on something.

      • Megan says:

        I really think William should buy Kate a daywear ring. A cocktail ring just looks silly when worn before 5 pm.

      • notasugarhere says:

        She’s have to buy it herself with the Duchy credit card, as he doesn’t buy her jewelry. She even bought the eternity band herself, as confirmed by the shop keeper.

      • Digital Unicorn (aka Betti) says:

        The thing with that Diana ring is that it was Harrys – both boys got to choose a piece of jewellery as a keepsake, William picked a watch and Harry her engagement ring. Story is that when the engagement was announced Harry was surprised to see Waity wearing the ring – Willy apparently just took it. The ring was harry’s to give to his lady love one day.

      • Enid says:

        Maybe he will get something that belonged to the Queen Mother. Her taste in jewelry was on point.

      • Mimi says:

        Actually its been said that this is not true, that the ring was chosen by William as a keepsake. That makes more sense as he is the eldest son. However the ring got in his possession, it was never attached to any good memories or sentiment as Charles had no intent of honoring his vows, didn’t love his bride, and let her pick the ring herself from a selection of on-hand jewels. Typically clueless of William to pass it along to his bride and typically clueless of Kate to accept it. It’s an ugly ring that hasn’t aged well and will always be associated with Diana. Kate has hardly made it her own.

      • notasugarhere says:

        The person who went on record about the boy’s choices was a former staffer. One who was called in to deal with Diana’s body and her personal belongings. William picked the watch, sentimental choice because he remembered learning to tell time with it. Harry chose the ring.

      • Digital Unicorn (aka Betti) says:

        @Mimi – The ring was chosen by Harry and William picked her gold Cartier watch but (update to my gossip here) apparently the bothers either agreed that whoever got engaged first could give it to their SO or they swapped chosen items at a late date. There is no real clarity on the issue. Thou I do recall there being gossip about Harry being shocked not just by the engagement – the speculation at the time was that it was over the ring.

        Paul Burrell is on record as blabbing to the world about what items the boys picked. Its mentioned in his book(s) about Diana.

      • Original T.C. says:

        My theory is Wills gave Waity the Diana ring to remind the press of Diana’s death so they can treat him and waity with kid gloves. It’s him playing the sympathy card. She wears that ring like a weapon and always makes sure it is noticeable. Stupid Wills didn’t care that it came from a failed marriage.

      • Megan says:

        My theory is that William is monumentally cheap and used the only free ring that was available to him.

    • Abby says:

      oh man that sucks — didn’t know it was supposed to be Harry’s. :-/

    • Sarah says:

      I thought they were getting engaged any day!! That’s what everyone here said!! What happened?? And really, no pics except for one? Does she every go out of the house? She is going to have a major Vitamin D deficiency!
      I hope the British taxpayers won’t be paying for his booty call in Canada. Cause let’s be honest, if one of the Trumps were doing this (and I DESPISE every single Trump alive, except for that poor little boy, Barron) everyone would be totally against it. Cause the Invictus games don’t take months – he was in the US for a couple of weeks, at most.

      • Olenna says:

        “Everyone” has not said they were getting engaged any day. But, this is a gossip site, so people will speculate and some are cheering them on, some are hating on them. Pics? I’ve seen a couple of them, one of which was taken last month. But, as others have noted, he wants privacy and that seems to be working for them. Vit D? Is that genuine concern for her health? You know it’s OK if you don’t like her. Trump? He and his family have no correlation to this couple, no matter how anyone tries to stretch it. Over on the disgusting DM, ignorant Americans used to compare President Obama, an elected official, to the Queen, the ceremonial head of an un-elected dynasty. There is just no equivalency b/w the two in terms of position or financial burden to their countries’ citizens. But, I will add, many people are seething over the outrageous cost of security Trump’s adult children are costing the taxpayers, not to mention his frequent mini-vacations and Mrs. T’s residence in NYC.

  4. lower-case deb says:

    that’s one heck of a delay tactic to distract Canadians from thoughts of seceding away from the UK mothership.

    the Luvvie Cambridge Maneuver didn’t seem to work all that well… HMS Harry might work better.

  5. Abby says:

    Yay! I think she is stunning. I am awaiting pics of them together… anyone seen any?

    • Spiderpig says:

      Yeah, there have been a few pap pics, from one theatre trip last year and then recently and at Soho House. Been discussed on here quite a bit.

      • Digital Unicorn (aka Betti) says:

        She’s sealioning – there seems to be posts like this on almost every Harry/Meghan thread asking for evidence when its already all over the internet. Don’t do her research for her – google is her friend. x

      • Abby says:

        Yikes betti… don’t even know what sealioning is. I come here a couple times a week but don’t get to every thread, or comment much. But I have kids and read while nursing a baby so I probably missed the pics.

        This is my only gossip site and I love it but sheesh. Pardon me. I am not doubting the relationship, I just would love to see pics of them together. Off to look it up.

      • Mimi says:

        Betti, funny how it’s always the the same initial comment and follow up response. I wouldn’t give the benefit of the doubt as the trolling and “who me” is so obvious.

    • L84Tea says:

      I got accused of sealioning just a week or so ago because I asked a similar question. She might just be honestly curious like I was. Geez.

      • Abby says:

        Ok. Sure.

        What I said and what I mean is, I think she is beautiful and I would love to see more photos of them together.

        I never said I didn’t think they had a relationship or sealioning or trolling or whatever. I like Harry, I like Meghan. The end.

        And I’ve not commented on a Harry/Meghan post before. Lots of will/Kate, lots of harry, and lots of other celebrity posts. Please give me a break before you start accusing me of things.

        I looked back and saw some negativity around her on other posts, so maybe y’all are sensitive to that, but I promise it was not my intention. I’m not playing dumb for a reaction.

      • Sarah says:

        Some people have nothing better to do but follow these celebrities all day, and note every picture of them. Just ignore nastiness like that.

    • Abby says:

      Just wanted to clarify… I’m not a troll. I’ve been on Celebitchy for many years. I just miss posts sometimes and legit have never seen pics of them together.

      • L84Tea says:

        Same thing happened to me, Abby. I’m on this site all the time. Just a week ago I was laughing about the fact that you never see them photographed together, and I joked about that I was convinced this relationship was made up. I then got smacked up and down being called a sealion. I didn’t even know what that term meant. It’s ridiculous.

      • KiddVicious says:

        I had to google sealioning, never heard it before. First google hit was “a lesbian cougar”. I’m guessing that’s not the relevant definition here.

  6. Luca76 says:

    Hmm just guessing for the heck of it but. I think if they are heading towards marriage realistically speaking they wouldn’t set those wheels in motion until after shooting is completed so she meets the Queen late summer/fall we get a wedding next spring? (If we’re still here god willing the Orange one doesn’t destroy our planet).

    • HeidiM says:

      A very short engagement would be nice, with a Fall wedding.

      • FrostedFlakes says:

        I don’t believe that H&M will get engaged as long as she is filming in Toronto and agree that it will be a very short engagement… I however noted that so far on this Season of Suits, they are dropping hints like crazy and building up to her leaving Pearson Spector, ie. Suits. So I see her leaving sooner rather than later.

        I personally think she will be off the show by the time they take a Summer hiatus. So I predict a summer / pre-Invictus engagement to have them officially together during the Invictus Games. As I just cannot see them spending another Christmas apart, they will get married before Christmas… maybe around the end of November, around the same time that the Queen celebrates her wedding anniversary.

  7. dodgy says:

    She has nice eyes and skin. Lucky!

  8. notasugarhere says:

    Damned if he does, damned if he doesn’t. Invictus Games is his, and he has a large part in the planning and organizing. His Invictus behind-the-scenes time is counted as “personal” and doesn’t end up in the Court Circular. Attendance at the event last year counted as work in the CC, but all of the planning time was personal.

    If he stays with her, he gets in trouble. If he stays at Government House, they both get in trouble if she stays with him there. If he stays at a hotel, it will be wall-to-wall paps waiting to get a picture of them.

    I could see one weekend trip in late April, one extended working visit in May, conveniently timed during Pippa’s wedding. He has Trooping the Colour, Royal Ascot, WWTW at Balmoral mid-to-end of June, plus he may spend 4 weeks in Africa in July working on Sentebale like last year. Back to Toronto end of September for the Games. Depending on her filming schedule, she might join him in Africa for part of July. If they’re still together and serious, she might get the Balmoral test in August.

    It will be interesting to see what happens.

    • notasugarhere says:

      I forgot the Diana memorial unveiling. If that is done in time, I hope any public unveiling is scheduled for her birthday July 1 and not the anniversary of her death August 31.

    • Nic919 says:

      The GG house is in Ottawa and Toronto tore down its Government House in 1937 so there isn’t an official residence. Plus Invictus is not a royal visit. Harry would have to stay at a hotel but he has managed to stay at Meghans place in previous visits without much fanfare except for the paps. I imagine they will do the same again.

      • notasugarhere says:

        Apologies. Staying at any government-related housing let’s say. Behind the scenes work with Invictus, like these meetings, are personal work. His attendance at Invictus Games last year was listed in the CC as official royal engagements. All of the days of the games received roughly the same entry.

        “Prince Henry of Wales, Patron, Invictus Games Foundation, this morning attended the Invictus Games at Walt Disney World, Orlando, Florida, United States of America.”

        He might be able to stay with her if he goes to Toronto to attend meetings. He’ll still be criticized for use of security, etc. During the Games themselves? Different issue if he’s on official time but staying with his girl friend. Or if he extends the visit before or after the Games to spend extra time with her.

    • Maria says:

      Heck I live in Toronto, they can stay here. I won’t tell anybody. And they can bring her dogs. Don’t know if my kitty would like it though. Just hurry up and get engaged, and get married before Xmas, that’s all I ask.

    • Sarah says:

      How long was he in the US for the Invictus Games here? If he stays there longer, do the British people pay for his security, etc??

      • notasugarhere says:

        He combined things last time. While he was there for Invictus, he also participated in a charity polo match to raise funds for Sentebale. Does Toronto have a polo club?

  9. bettyrose says:

    How can she spend more than three months at his shag pad on a tourist visa? Is her Canadian work visa good for long stays in Britain too? (Mostly joking. I know it’s easy to renew a tourist visa and royal GF’s aren’t likely to stress about such things).

    • Digital Unicorn (aka Betti) says:

      I think under a tourist visa you can stay in the UK for upto 6 months.

    • Mimi says:

      Edited since you added you were joking.

      • Bettyrose says:

        Sorry, Mimi. Saw some accusations of sealioning above, googled it, and realized I could be accused of same. I was joking since tourist visas are obviously a minor issue, but as an American who once hoped to live in Britain, I’m always curious about visa success stories.

  10. Ramona says:

    We are still on track for my prediction. Engagement ring by the end of spring. Quick (by Royal standards) by end of Summer. The Queen can get on board or go suck it, her choice, this ship is sailing damnit.

    • Maria says:

      Exactly, Ramona. Honestly what is the queen going to do? With so many divorces in her family, she can’t do much. My guess is she wants to avoid mistakes made in the past and will
      give her blessing.

    • Sarah says:

      Do you think Harry thinks the Queen, his grandmother, should go suck it? From what I’ve read, he is actually close to her. I think he would want her blessing.

  11. Ruby says:

    I’d like to see Meghan involved in the Invictus Games in some way. Such a great event Harry put together. If they are engagement bound, it would be a great way for Harry and Meghan to show the world their commitment to helping others.

  12. Joannie says:

    I think the majority of this relationship is speculation. If it were as serious as ppl on here like to think we would be seeing other pics of them together. She’s spent various amounts of time in London prior to meeting Harry so they might be casually dating or not at all. On a superficial note I think she’s very average looking and could probably walk around London unnoticed.

    • Maria says:

      Yeah, more fake news!

    • Mimi says:

      Harry, in his own words, told you what’s what. He said he was going to do everything to protect his next relationship from prying eyes. So that’s what he’s doing. It ain’t hard to figure out. You will not be seeing magazine photospreads or interviews of the two of them discussing their relationship. He also had the freaking palace issue a public and official declaration that she is his girlfriend and that they had been dating for months–something no one knew until late October. There is nothing casual about his actions but whatever floats your boat.

      • Joannie says:

        She posted several things putting two and two together prior to it coming out publicly. He didnt want the press bullying her. We dont have a clue as to whether this is serious or not. I guess you must have an inside scoop that no one else does. Go read a romance novel.

    • HappyMom says:

      If this wasn’t serious Harry would not have issued that statement telling the press to leave her alone. They were photographed together a few weeks ago. Keep up with your fan fiction, though.

      • notasugarhere says:

        I’m glad for them that they can stay out of the public eye as much as they have. She’s not due back until April in Toronto, so likely she’d stay in London at KP with him until then.

  13. Margo S. says:

    I live in toronto and it’s a pretty kick ass city. I can see why he wants to have many a meetings here. They are so friggin cute together. Love them both!

    • Ravine says:

      I’m in TO too and now I can’t stop fantasizing about their summer together. She lives in Seaton Village, right? My mundane prediction is that they’ll get spotted grocery-shopping at Fiesta Farms.

  14. Amelie says:

    Is it really a booty call if he’s seeing his own girlfriend? They are clearly not casual,
    Meghan is staying with him at his residence for several months. Booty call implies secret casual hook up… that’s not what this is.
