The Governor General of Canada would love to see the flame-haired royal tie the knot with the 'Suits' star as he feels it would bring Canada and the United Kingdom even closer together.

He told ITV News: "I think it would be quite marvellous and I hope it would be quite marvellous for him and obviously it will help to bring us together. But, you know, that reflects so many of the people-to-people ties that are so strong. I think about 20 percent of our citizens would claim British heritage so those ties are very strong."

It comes after a source claimed Harry and Meghan are "heading in [the] direction" of an engagement.

They explained: "Harry and Meghan are not engaged yet, reports that they are are jumping the gun slightly. They are definitely heading in that direction, but when they do get engaged Harry will follow Royal protocol and an announcement will be made by the Palace.

"Harry and Meghan are very much in love, but they both want to make completely sure that they are ready to take the next step before doing so. Harry does not want to make the same mistake as his mother and father did. When he marries it will be for life, and it's not something he is going to rush into.

"There's all manner of things Harry and Meghan need to decide before getting engaged, like where they will live, and if Meghan will continue with her acting career. She's made it clear that she would like to continue working, and to do that she needs to spend a large amount of her time in Canada and the US."
