MEGHAN Markle has dropped her biggest hint to date that she will soon be marrying Prince Harry by quitting US drama Suits, according to reports.

The 36-year-old American actress is thought to be filming her final scenes on the show next month after telling bosses she was done with the program - and, following more public appearances with Harry, it seems she's ready to become a "full-time royal".

A source told The Daily Star: "Meghan knows she can't really act at the same time as being a princess and is happy to make this career sacrifice.

"She really enjoys her charity work with Unicef and will broaden out her charity commitments when she becomes a full-time royal."

The insider added that Meghan and Harry plan to announce their engagement by Christmas.

It follows reports Meghan was planning not to sign up for another series, with another source telling The Sun: "Meghan loved playing Rachel and feels she owes so much to Suits.

"But Harry can't move to Toronto, so she'll have to move eventually if they want to be together.

"Her decision to give up the biggest role of her career would mean a lot."

It's been reported that Meghan and Harry are already engaged after their romantic August trip to Botswana - though they've kept this private so as not to overshadow the anniversary of Princess Diana's death.

Last week Meghan caused a stir by being driven around London in a swish black Volkswagen by a chauffeur - and Kate was seen being driven round in a sponsored car just before her engagement to Wills was announced in 2010.

However the royals hit back to say Harry is personally paying for Meghan's car rides rather than allowing her to cream off the taxpayer-funded perks royals enjoy.

Her 14-month romance with Prince Harry, 33, became a public affair this year, when she gave a revealing interview to Vanity Fair.

"We're a couple. We're in love," she told the magazine.

"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," she added.

Last month Meghan made her first public loved-up display with Harry at the Invictus Games in Toronto, where she lives and films her show.

The pair sat together in the crowd, and openly held hands for all to see.
