Prince Harry was joined by Meghan Markle to celebrate the wedding of one of his closest friends in Jamaica yesterday, according to Mail Online.

Wearing a navy blue suit and yellow corsage, Harry looked every bit the handsome Prince as he undertook his official usher duties at the ceremony in Montego Bay.

Miss Markle made the most of the Caribbean sunshine, sporting a flowery dress and sunglasses as she accompanied her beau at the wedding of Tom ‘Skippy’ Inskip with flame-haired literary agent the Hon Laura Hughes-Young.

The fifth in line to the throne flew out from Gatwick to Montego Bay on Wednesday and is staying at one of the most luxurious resorts on the coast.

Miss Markle, 35, flew in separately from her Toronto home later the same day.

The order of service showed Prince Harry was one of 14 ushers, with Tom Faber as the best man.

One friend said: ‘This the first time that she and Harry have socialised so openly as a couple and is a significant step up in their relationship.

‘Make no mistake, he is heads over heels about her. This one could go all the way.’

Ironically divorcee Miss Markle married her former husband, producer Trevor Engleson, in Jamaica in 2011.

The pair tied the knot at after dating for seven years, but split just two years later.

Harry, 32, and ‘party animal’ Mr Inskip, 30, have been friends since they were pupils at Eton together and are utterly inseparable.

When the prince disgraced himself playing naked pool in Las Vegas, Mr Inskip was by his side. And when the royal jumped into a nightclub swimming pool in Croatia fully clothed in 2011, his close friend was there with him too.

Mr Inskip, who was once photographed driving a convertible sports car naked in the US, his modesty only preserved by the steering wheel, was also with Harry when he was seen inhaling ‘hippy crack’, otherwise known as laughing gas, at a party in 2010.

His father, Owen Inskip, was a field master of Prince Charles’s favourite hunt, The Beaufort.

The groom and his bride, the daughter of Lord St Helens, have hired out the super exclusive Round Hill Hotel and Villas, a private 110-acre plantation style resort first built as a colony of cottages for the rich, famous and glamorous of the 1950s.

It boasts £1,600-a-night shore-side pool villas, one of which is believed to have been snapped up by Harry and Miss Markle, which are decorated in cool, Caribbean shades, with open-air living spaces, outdoor showers and locally handcrafted furniture.

Elsewhere the resort’s £500-a-night hotel suites are designed by Ralph Lauren, while facilities include a top-class spa, tennis courts and infinity pool, all nestled in carefully-tended tropical gardens.

The Prince and Miss Markle, who stars in the hit US legal drama series Suits, have been dating since last summer and despite living on different continents, the relationship has quickly taken off.

She spent the first two months of this year staying with Harry at Kensington Palace, where he lives in ‘modest’ Nottingham Cottage, before returning to Toronto where she is currently based for work commitments and to be united with her two beloved rescue dogs.

Miss Markle is due to start filming again next month but sources say there is talk that she will asked to be written out of show after completing her commitments in order to concentrate on her relationship with the Queen’s grandson.

Prince Harry has introduced girlfriend Meghan Markle to Duchess of Cambridge at Kensington Palace for the first time in January.
