According to Meghan’s former Suits co-star, Max Topplin, the actress is struggling to deal with life under the intense royal spotlight.

“She’s an actress, this isn’t what she signed up for anyway… this is like a whole new ballpark,” Max told New Idea.

“But I know she’s really happy, I know she’s just embracing this new world for herself and I know she loves the guy.”

Max also claimed that it couldn’t have happened to a nicer person and Meghan is perfect princess material.

It comes after Princess Diana's personal chef said they're most likely gearing up to announce their engagement by Christmas.

"I really do think they would have been engaged by now. But Princess Diana's 20th anniversary this month in August, they can't trump that," Darren McGrady told Hello! magazine.

Darren pointed out there are a number of Royal events happening in 2017 that need to take precedence.

"November is the Queen and Prince Philip's platinum wedding anniversary so they can't trump that either, whereas December they can announce the engagement and they'd be free to marry next year; I think that's what's going to happen."
