British Royal Family

All that's missing is the actual announcement.

By Chloe Lal

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle are doing very little to squash talks of their engagement.

Besides an official announcement from the Palace, it sounds like it is all systems go for the next Royal Wedding.

After the pair went public at the 2017 Invictus Games in Toronto, close friends couldn't help but comment on the official royal engagement announcement we're all waiting to hear.

"While Meghan may not be wearing a ring or a formal engagement announced, it's fair to say they're as good as engaged now," a pal recently told E! News.

"They've spoken about their marriage plans openly with each other and friends and family around them are pretty much thinking about wedding attire already!"

And now we have three NEW, groundbreaking signs that have us rushing out to buy a wedding hat.

Can't wait till Harry and Meghan announce their engagement? Relive the exciting moment his family shared their big news in the video player below!

Sign 1: Meghan has her own chauffeur

When looking out to see if someone is joining the British Royal Family, the next best thing after an engagement ring is their choice of vehicle.

According to The Daily Mail, Miss Markle has been spotted nipping about the streets of London in her very own chauffeured black Volkswagen Golf.

For those playing at home, the last time a royal's potential spouse was seen being driven around it was none other than Kate Middleton.

Just before the palace confirmed Prince William had proposed in 2010 Kate was sighted in an Audi A3.

The cars are part of a deal between the royal family and Audi’s parent company Volkswagen, which gives members a 60 per cent lease discount, The Mail reports.

Prince Harry is said to be personally paying for Meghan's flashy ride, though the moment she is "officially engaged", the 36-year-old will receive taxpayer funded security officers and drivers.

Harry is making all the arrangements in preparation for his future wife.

Sign 2: We have a wedding dress designer!

It has been a huge year for the royal family, ticking off so many boxes like Prince Philip retiring, Kate and Wills expecting baby number three and Pippa Middleton getting hitched.

Taking you back May, everyone went in overdrive over the Duchess' little sister's stunning choice of wedding dress, designed by Giles Deacon.

And now the British heavyweight is said to be suiting up for 2018's royal event of the year.

One of fashion's worst kept secrets - Giles Deacon was the visionary behind Pippa's stunning gown.

Apparently he's been secured as Meghan Markle's wedding dress designer.

Channeling his best blushing bride, Giles coyly spoke out about the speculation.

“If Meghan Markle was in any way interested, I would be more than delighted," he recently told Press Association.

Somebody clang the wedding bells! We look back at Pippa's magical day.

Sign 3: Will Rachel Zane remain on Suits?

The final nail in the proverbial coffin: Meghan Markle has not commented on whether she'll continue acting.

Meghan may be one of the leading stars on the legal drama Suits, but she still hasn't confirmed if she'll continue her role as Rachel Zane.

And fans are reading into that silence.

If she committed to another season of the Toronto-based series, Meghan would have to halt her move to London.

"Meghan loved playing Rachel and feels she owes so much to Suits. But Harry can’t move to Toronto, so she’ll have to move eventually if they want to be together," an insider explained to The Sun.

"Her decision to give up the biggest role of her career would mean a lot."

At this point, insiders are saying the actress' bags are all packed and ready to go in November - once filming wraps up.

Woman's Day have been told that Meghan is even bringing her mum Doria Ragland along!

“Doria is part of the package,” an insider shared.

“Meghan can’t imagine not having her mum close by, and she wants her to experience royal life and the adventure she’s about to embark on. They’re very close.”
