Juggling work and a new romance is often a struggle, but we have to imagine it's even more intense when you're in the public eye and under major scrutiny. Actress Meghan Markle, Prince Harry's new girlfriend, will take a break from filming the television show Suits following unrelenting harassment that has been so extreme, Kensington Palace issued a statement earlier this week calling for the media to respect the 35-year-old's privacy.

According to Page Six, Markle won't be filming this week and sources believe it's because the beautiful brunette is figuring out how to best navigate this new terrain with the guidance of a legal team. 

It's a shame that dating a dashing prince has to come with such a price. The source claims that Markle, who has appeared on the show for six years, is overwhelmed by the sudden onslaught of attention and prying into her personal life.

"She comes across as just a regular girl," the source told the outlet. "She's stunning in person, but not everyone knew who she was. And she's everywhere now." 

It has to be disconcerting to go from relative obscurity to being thrust into the spotlight within such a short period of time. While it makes sense that she's feeling the pressure, we have to wonder how that's impacting the pair's relatively new relationship. Harry certainly can't change his royal roots, but this has to be a strain on the courtship. 

Reportedly, the couple met during a May event for Prince Harry's Invictus Games in Toronto and have been together since June.

Harry's previous girlfriends Cressida Bonas and Chelsy Davy seemed to take it in stride, but, perhaps as fans hope for another royal wedding, the interest in the prince's love life has reached a fever pitch.

Even with Harry being the world's most eligible (and dare we say, adorable) bachelor, his girlfriend deserves to have her and her family's privacy respected. It would be impossibly difficult to choose between the two.
