The actress has been in a relationship with the fifth in line to the throne - due to be dropped down to sixth in line when his sister-in-law, The Duchess of Cambridge, gives birth to her and Prince William’s third child - since June 2016.
The rumours add fuel to the fire the Californian is planning on heading over to Britain to be with Harry on a permanent basis, months after it was widely believed she was considering moving into his Kensington Palace home.
The contracts of all Suits original cast members - including Adams and Markle - are reportedly up after Season 7, meaning Markle will be free to move of if she wants.
Markle currently plays Rachel Zane, a former paralegal who is now a lawyer and engaged to Mike Ross (Adams' character), which would make a double departure from the show easier for the pair.
