Rebellious Prince Harry took beauty Meghan Markle as his date to a pal's romantic wedding — effectively thumbing his nose at his father who ordered the royal redhead to dump the biracial American TV siren.
Obviously smitten, Harry and Meghan, who stars on Suits, held hands in public — for the first time — and got all touchy-feely as Tom "Skippy" Inskip tied the knot in sunny Jamaica.
"Harry was telling his father, Charles, to stay out of his life," a palace insider said.
Meghan, 35, hooked up with Harry after flying into Montego Bay from Toronto for some heavy partying. Harry, 32, was helping his "wingman" celebrate his marriage to red-haired literary agent Lara Hughes-Young. Skippy and Harry have a long history of bad-boy antics, including the prince's naked splashdown in a Vegas pool — and a notorious all-nude Sin City billiards game with curvy cuties.
But at Skippy's wedding, Harry kept on his navy blue suit with a yellow corsage as he stepped up with 13 other pals to act as usher.
Meghan, wearing a floral dress and sunglasses, beamed at her blue-blood beau and later they cuddled.
"This is the first time that she and Harry have socialized so openly as a couple and it's a significant step in the relationship," said his friend.
But as RadarOnline.com reported, Charles, prodded by wife Camilla, ordered his son to get rid of Meghan, a divorcée who was previously wed to producer Trevor Engelson from 2011 to 2013.
"Camilla likens Meghan to Fergie, who triggered public scandals with her running around and was photographed topless having her toes sucked by a boyfriend while still married to Charles' brother Andrew," said a source.
"But make no mistake, Harry is head over heels about Meghan. He could be following Skippy down the aisle!"
