Buckingham Palace addresses Prince Harry engagement rumours

After days – or more like months – of frenzied speculation, a representative of Buckingham Palace has at last spoken about Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's relationship status.

Well, sort of.

A spokesperson for the Palace told UK media that they, "would not give a running commentary on Harry's love life".

It's the closest thing to an official announcement the Palace is likely to supply its eagerly waiting public until there's a ring on Meghan's finger.

British bookmakers have already suspended bets on the couple's engagement announcement, with a spokesperson from betting agency William Hill releasing the statement, "We believe the happy couple are already engaged and possible have been for some time."

"Royal watchers would love a Christmas engagement announcement, and as far as we're concerned it's coming imminently," he told the Daily Mail.

"Meghan has met her Prince Charming and it looks like this fairytale is going to end happy ever after."
