GIRL ABOUT TOWN: Meghan's wheely big clue on a possible Royal wedding as she is seen being driven around London in a souped-up VW
This year the stunning US actress has been spotted several times in London being driven around by burly male chauffeur in the souped-up black VW.
The last time an attractive young woman linked to a Prince was seen being driven through the streets in a flash car was when a certain Kate Middleton was pictured in an Audi A3 before her engagement to William in 2010.
Meghan Markle, pictured, here in a TV advert has dropped the biggest hint of a Royal wedding having been photographed in a VW on her increasingly frequent visits to London
Keep it chic in a Proenza Schouler top like Meghan Markle
Having made her first public appearance with Prince Harry at the recent Invictus Games, it looks like we're going to be seeing a lot more of Meghan Markle.
We're super pleased about this, as not only do we love cooing other the love birds, but it gives us a chance to check out what Meghan's wearing!
In this snap, taken from a TV advert, Meghan channels her signature chic look, wearing a monochrome Proenza Schouler off the shoulder top with halterneck detail.
We're loving this cold shoulder blouse featuring a frill details, nailing two trends in one!
Sadly it's sold out, but you can click right to buy a similar version then recreate the look with one of the picks from our roundup below.
Meghan Markle and Prince Harry appeared in public for the first time at the Invictus Games
The then Kate Middleton leased an Audi under a special scheme available to the Royals
It turned out Kate had the car as part of a deal that Audi’s parent company VW has with the Royal Family – it offers members a 60 per cent lease discount.
Now Royal watchers believe Meghan is benefiting from the same arrangement and is already considered part of The Firm.
Meghan – who made her first public appearance with Harry at the Invictus Games in Canada last weekend – is spending increasing amounts of time at Kensington Palace with the Prince.
They frequent nearby members’ club Albert’s in the evenings, and during the day Meghan can often be found at 76 Dean Street – a branch of Soho House – with friends. She also pops to Mayfair salon Nails & Brows, which is also a favourite of Princess Beatrice.
The 36-year-old actress is expected to relocate to London once filming of her legal drama series Suits finishes in Toronto in November.
Speculation is rife that an engagement announcement will be made soon afterwards.
My source says the VW Golf was likely to have been chosen over a larger car – such as a Land Rover – for its agility when zipping through clogged streets.
Meghan has been spotted on several occasions in the Golf, which does not have blacked-out windows. She sits next to the driver rather than in the back.
Kensington Palace would not say who pays for the car, but it is likely Harry is bankrolling the arrangement privately. If an engagement is announced, Meghan will get taxpayer-funded security officers and drivers.
In Toronto, NBC Universal provides chauffeur-driven cars for her inbetween filming scenes for Suits. She has also starred in an America television advert driving a luxury Lexus RX.
A Kensington Palace spokesman declined to comment and Meghan’s publicist said there is no car on ‘standby’.
He has sent staff to Kentucky to find the perfect bourbon, and wants to hire a weatherman to check the terrace temperature three times a day and a sculptor to carve ice cubes, so it’s little wonder Richard Caring is set to miss the deadline he set himself for reopening his club Annabel’s.
It was hoped the new £55 million Berkeley Square venue would start welcoming guests again next month, but I hear that work has fallen behind as Richard strives for perfection.
You won't believe what they tell me!
