Lovestruck Prince Harry is being branded a "homewrecker" after cooking up a plot to woo gorgeous Suits beauty Meghan Markle away from her live-in lover — celebrity chef Cory Vitiello!
The 32-year-old red-haired hunk fell for Markle, 35, who plays intern Rachel on the hit USA network legal drama, the minute he met her last May in Toronto.
"He became obsessed with her," a source exclusively told RadarOnline.com. "He bombarded her with texts, begging her to go out with him — even though she was living with Cory.
"Finally she gave in — and they've been secretly dating ever since, criss-crossing the Atlantic for steamy trysts."
In July, heartbroken Vitiello announced he and Markle had broken up a few weeks before.
"It looks like Harry's a homewrecker," said a royal insider.
Before Harry swooped in, Markle had hooked up with cook Vitiello after her two-year marriage to film producer Trevor Engelson ended in divorce in 2013.
They moved into a townhouse in a posh suburb, with dogs Guy and Bogart.
In March, Vitiello boasted he was "so proud of my lady" after she was named a Global Ambassador for the children's charity, World Vision.
"But weeks later, he was sleeping on a friend's sofa," said a source.
Now, royal insiders say Harry desperately wants Markle to move to London and shack up with him in Kensington Palace!
"Harry's made no secret of wanting to marry and have kids and he believes Meghan's 'The One.' They have amazing chemistry and both are passionate humanitarians," said a palace source.
But his father and future king, Prince Charles, has banned the relationship — and any future marriage — upon the urging of his snobby wife Camilla.
"Camilla doesn't want another commoner — like Prince William's wife Kate — tainting the royal blood and trying to change the monarchy," an insider told Radar.
But, unlike his henpecked dad, Harry's no pushover for scheming Camilla.
"Harry's a soldier," says the source. "He's going to fight to make sure he doesn't lose Meghan! He's headed for all-out war with the royals."
