Prince Harry makes 1,700-mile detour to see girlfriend Meghan Markle

Gemma Strong

Prince Harry reportedly took a detour to spend some precious time with girlfriend Meghan Markle following his two-week tour of the Caribbean. The Prince had been due to fly straight back from Barbados to London on Sunday, ahead of an official engagement on Wednesday. But instead he made the decision to travel 1,700 miles to see Meghan in Canada, spending Sunday night and Monday at her home in Toronto, the Sun reports.

The 32-year-old's last-minute dash to be by Meghan's side is perhaps indicative of how important the relationship is to him. Numerous sources have stated that Harry is "head over heels in love" with the TV star, and – as HELLO! Online previously reported - it is thought he has made plans to see Meghan again before Christmas Day.

The Prince secretly flew out to Toronto for Halloween, while Meghan also made a last-minute trip to London just last month. The 35-year-old star was spotted shopping in Kensington, just a few minutes' walk from Harry's home, Nottingham Cottage, wearing her boyfriend's baseball cap.
