A hush-hush meeting was held at the Queen's household yesterday, confirming the big news to Buckingham and Kensington Palace staff, an insider close to the royal family told the publication.
Queen Elizabeth reportedly was at the meeting as staffers were informed that Harry, 33, and Suits star Markle, 36, are engaged and plan a "non-traditional" wedding.
But according to the Daily Star, the engagement won't be publicly announced yet because Harry and Markle are still making plans after dating for 17 months.
"They are engaged but they are trying to sort a few things out now, like house hunting for a retreat and other things," the spy told the British publication. "It will be up to them to decide when to announce it as they want to do it their own way, which Her Majesty agrees with."
However, the source said the public engagement announcement could be made at any time, maybe as soon as next week.
"They are a very private couple," said the Daily Star source.
The report also noted about the second born child to Prince Charles and the late Princess Diana, "Her Majesty said Harry hasn't got the same responsibility as William which I know Harry is very happy with."
Harry's galpal Markle recently made her first official public appearance with him at the Invictus Games for wounded military members. But Markle sat a couple of rows away from her beloved as he sat with President Donald Trump's wife Melania.
