Meghan Markle shops for groceries during stay at Kensington Palace - report

Meghan Markle has been pictured shopping for groceries in London, England, after taking a break from filming her TV show.

The Suits actress was seen out and about in the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea on Thursday (10Nov16), amid reports she is staying with her boyfriend Prince Harry at his home at Kensington Palace.

In pictures obtained by Daily Mail Online, the actress is seen dressed in a baseball cap pulled down low over her eyes, rain jacket and trendy Hunter wellington boots, carrying groceries from organic health food store Whole Foods.

The 35-year-old actress appears to be alone as she makes the short walk from the food store back to Kensington Palace.

According to the news outlet Meghan is staying with Harry at his bijou Kensington Palace home, Nottingham Cottage - an abode formerly occupied by Prince William and Kate.

A royal insider admitted that her presence at his home indicates the relationship is serious.

"To come and go at a royal home is a very concrete sign that they have become extremely close," a courtier told the Daily Mail.

Harry has been single since he split from previous long-term girlfriend Cressida Bonas more than two years ago.

Meghan appears to have spent a lot of time in the U.K. over the summer, posting pictures from London to her one million Instagram followers in June, July, August and September (16).

She is taking time off from filming her popular US television legal drama, Suits, to be with Harry, after reportedly telling her producers that she had "something important" to do.

According to the news report, most of the royal family will be in London this weekend including Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip, Harry's father Prince Charles, who is flying back from Bahrain on Friday (11Nov16) and his wife Camilla, and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, who live in Kensington Palace, so Harry may be planning to take the opportunity to introduce his girlfriend to his entire family.

Some reports suggest Meghan may have been in London at the time Harry released his statement earlier this week (08Nov16).

The prince took the unprecedented move of confirming their relationship and condemning the "wave of abuse" in a strongly worded statement issued from his office in the wake of the coverage of his relationship with the actress.

Meanwhile, Meghan's outing came as Harry announced he will begin a Caribbean tour on behalf of the Queen on November 20 (16).
