"I can tell you that at the end of the day I think it’s really simple. We're two people who are really happy and in love," Suits actress Meghan Markle tells Vanity Fair in the October issue cover story -- and we're FREAKING OUT!

Royal watchers and, in particular, Prince Harry fans (and let's be honest -- who isn't?), are DYING over Markle's new interview with the mag and her revealing quotes about her relationship with the most eligible bachelor on earth. Here's what she said about their courtship: "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."

But it hasn't all been a fairytale for Markle, trolls have posted racist comments about her online and slammed her for being a "commoner" dating a royal. In November, Harry defended his girlfriend against haters, in a statement against "racist, sexist trolls."

Of all the online chatter, Meghan says, "It has its challenges, and it comes in waves — some days it can feel more challenging than others. And right out of the gate it was surprising the way things changed. But I still have this support system all around me, and, of course, my boyfriend’s support. I don’t read any press. I haven’t even read press for Suits. The people who are close to me anchor me in knowing who I am. The rest is noise."

The couple recent celebrated her 36th birthday in Africa, where it was rumored Prince Harry was set to propose during their three-week stay. But Markle didn't touch that bit of news, she only commented about their love for each other, saying, "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."

Can you IMAGINE the wedding?! We hope and pray for this!!! An American royal would be the pinnacle of awesomeness!
