Following confirmation that Prince Harry has been in a relationship with Suits actress Meghan Markle for several months, the star's brother has tipped the union as being the real deal, hinting that a royal wedding could be on the cards.

Meghan's brother Thomas Markle is 100 per cent behind the couple, saying in an interview with Grazia magazine: "I can absolutely picture a royal wedding.

"Meghan has worked so hard to get to where she is now, and to be able to meet someone who is compatible is every girl's dream.

"Who wouldn't want that?"

Kensington Palace confirmed the pair's relationship earlier this month and, in an unusual move, issued a statement on behalf of the Prince, asking for privacy for the couple.

The pair were introduced by a mutual friend, Markus Anderson, in London in early June.

Since then, Markle has reportedly spent time in London with Harry. According to the Daily Mail, she was "pictured enjoying the local area on Thursday last week when she was seen returning from a shopping expedition at Whole Foods on High Street Kensington - a short walk from the palace."
