The 'Two Pints of Lager and a Packet of Crisps' actress portrays the brunette beauty in the comedy soap opera 'The Windsors' and has admitted she doesn't think it will be long before the flame-haired royal pops the question to his beautiful partner.

Speaking to The Sun newspaper, she said: "I hear Prince Harry's going to propose - how exciting for her if that happens! I think Meghan has got her sights set on becoming a humanitarian and possibly a royal. She's been thrust into the limelight, but I think she's very well equipped. She may be sweet and charming but she's probably got nerves of steel. I think she can handle it. That's the impression I get."

But Kathryn thinks Meghan knew what she was getting herself into before her relationship with the 32-year-old royal took off last year.

She explained: "You don't get into something with a member of the Royal Family lightly. And especially someone who's mixed race.

"Being not only a commoner but an American also being part African-American is a deal. You don't get into something like that without planning ahead."

And she's pleased that they had a few months together before people found out.

She said: "And they had a good couple of undercover months for her transitionary period from TV actress to possible future royal. It must have been thrilling when it was all secret but now it's out, it's a lot more serious. But it's a lifelong commitment, you know. I think the royals learnt from Princess Diana's struggles that these ladies need protecting and nurturing. But the younger generation of royals are much more grounded and down to earth. And I think they know that they don't dare make a mistake and marry someone who they don't want to spend the rest of their life with."
