The First Photo Of Prince Harry & Meghan Markle Are Here, But Don't Expect Anything Too Formal

In October, romance rumors began swirling around Prince Harry and Suits star Meghan Markle. Then, in November, Harry wrote an open letter about Markle defending her against anyone throwing harsh criticism her way. He also officially referred to her as his "girlfriend" in the letter confirming any and all speculation about the couple. Well, after many, many, rumors and his amazing letter, the first photo of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle is finally here. It's surprising it took this long for pictures to surface, but better late than never. Oh, and before you get too excited, the photo really isn't that amazing itself, but it is nice to see the two together.

Released by The Sun, Harry and Markle were spotted in London walking to a West End showing at the Gielgud Theatre of The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time. As you can see below, the photo isn't that great. I mean, I guess that's as good as it's going to get when two people are walking side by side on a street. You can barely see Harry's face and Markle's head is down. But it is clearly them in the picture and they appear to be happy. It looks like they're both smiling.

Reportedly, they held hands and also enjoyed the Christmas lights in Piccadilly Square. According to The Sun, "one royal protection officer" accompanied the duo as they "stunned" everyone else walking on "one of the busiest streets in the world."

The fact that Harry and Markle stepped outside together where photos could even be taken shows they just might be more comfortable being in the public eye and not feeling the need to be so private any longer. A supposed "pal" of his told The Sun, "Harry has said his privacy is important to him but they are clearly not afraid to be seen in public together." The source added, "They are clearly crazy about each other and have told friends they are very much in love. "As an actress Meghan loves the theatre so this was an obvious date to go on."

They really do make an adorable couple, so obviously it's exciting to see them out and about together. I'm sure this is the first of many photos of them, so here's hoping the next ones are better.
