Lovesick Prince Harry is desperate to marry his new American actress galpal — Suits stunner Meghan Markle — but his dad Charles, pushed by snooty wife Camilla, has banned the nuptials!
The red-haired royal hunk, 32, has been secretly dating the 35-year-old beauty, who plays paralegal Rachel Zane on the USA Network drama, since meeting her in May at the Invictus Games for disabled military in Canada.
But when he introduced Meghan to dad Charles — and his evil stepmom Camilla got wind of the romance — they put their foot down. Both believe the screen siren, who divorced producer Trevor Engelson after two years in 2013, “isn’t worthy of their family,” a palace insider says.
Prodded by Camilla, Charles issued Harry a royal decree — “get rid of her — FAST!” says the palace source.
“Snooty Camilla doesn’t want another commoner — like William‘s wife Kate — tainting the royal blood and trying to change the monarchy.
“Camilla likens Meghan to her brother-in-law Prince Andrew‘s ex-wife, Sarah Ferguson. She triggered public scandals getting photographed having her toes sucked by a lover — and trying to sell access to the royal family.”
Now in control of the royal family following a secret coup, Charles also threatened to cut off Harry’s generous allowance if he doesn’t ditch Meghan.
But Harry’s like his adventurous mom, Princess Diana, who defied royal tradition by dating Muslims — a doctor and wealthy playboy Dodi Fayed, who died with her in a 1997 car crash.
Swooning like a teenager, Harry’s been bombarding Meghan with late-night sex texts and calls.
Meanwhile, Meghan’s family is also threatening the romance by spilling the ugly truth about the beauty.
Her wheelchair-bound sister, Samantha Grant, 51, says the actress has turned her back on her financially strapped kin and ignored the plight of their dad Tom, who filed for bankruptcy in June.
“I certainly don’t think Harry or his family would want to associate with her afterward,” says writer Grant.
