Looks like the world may need someone to fill the Most Eligible Bachelor title soon. Not long after it was revealed that Prince Harry was dating Meghan Markle, the engagement rumors started. This wasn't surprising, of course, being that any time a royal dates someone, engagement rumors ramp up. But this time around, things seem different. Aside from the fact that Harry and Meghan have been practically inseparable lately -- and the fact that Meghan seems to have a stomach for the press -- Harry seems really smitten with the actress. And the couple's latest romantic excursion has people thinking Harry and Meghan will tie the knot sooner than anyone expected.

Over the weekend, Prince Harry arranged a private visit to London's Natural History Museum. Apparently, Meghan had always wanted to go, so Harry pulled some royal strings and made it happen. "It's quite romantic after dark as all the exhibits, including the dinosaurs, are all still lit up," a source told the Sun. This also comes on the heels of the news that the Suits actress has been staying with Harry at his home, Nottingham Cottage, on the Kensington Palace grounds as of late. The pair also reportedly spent most of January and February together.

Not surprisingly, all of this information has kicked the engagement rumors into high gear. It's been a while since Harry was so public with a romantic interest (not since Cressida Bonas), and, for many royal aficionados, that can only mean one thing: wedding bells. 

There's also the fact that Meghan has met pretty much all of Harry's family members, except for the queen. From all accounts, everyone seems to like her and she's got on well with her potential family-in-law

The Daily Beast's "Royalist," Tom Sykes, seems to think that the public manner in which Harry and Meghan have been handling their relationship means an engagement is definitely around the corner. Sykes, among others, thinks that the couple will attend Pippa Middleton's wedding in May together and an engagement will follow shortly after that. 

Prince William and Kate Middleton's wedding will be hard to top, but not gonna lie, the idea of another royal wedding is pretty exciting. Fingies and toes crossed that these two will be betrothed before the end of the year. Woot!
