The British royal and the 'Suits' actress have been dating since last year and recent speculation has suggested that the high-profile couple are already preparing to tie the knot - but a source has now claimed that Prince Harry would be eager to avoid an extravagant ceremony.

The insider explained: "Pomp and pageantry is the last thing he would want."

With that in mind, it has been suggested that the 33-year-old royal would seek to marry the brunette beauty in the relatively low-key surrounds of St George's Chapel.

The source told Us Weekly: "I can see him wanting to get married at St George's Chapel at Windsor Castle. It would stop it from turning into a total media circus and give the day a sense of privacy that Harry so badly craves."

Despite the interest surrounding their relationship, Meghan claimed earlier this year that she hasn't been changed by the experience of dating a royal.

Speaking in September, the actress explained: "We were very quietly dating for about six months before it became news, and I was working during that whole time, and the only thing that changed was people's perception.

"Nothing about me changed. I'm still the same person that I am, and I've never defined myself by my relationship."

However, Meghan admits they may need to become more open about their relationship as it develops.

She said: "We're a couple. We're in love. I'm sure there will be a time when we will have to come forward and present ourselves and have stories to tell, but I hope what people will understand is that this is our time.

"This is for us. It's part of what makes it so special, that it's just ours. But we're happy. Personally, I love a great love story."
