Glorious fall is officially here, and with the new season comes a new celebrity romance forecast: optimistic with a chance of heartbreak. In September 2017, some celebs rekindled old flames (we're looking at you, Chloe and Brooklyn), while some went up in flames (stay strong, Fergie and Josh). But while it's been a busy month for budding romances and disintegrating flings in Hollywood, none fascinates us more than Prince Harry and Meghan Markle finally making their public debut. It's been an important month for them both: On Sept. 23, they made headlines when they attended Harry's beloved Invictus Games in Toronto. Though they sat apart during the night's ceremonies, it was still a major coming out for the royal and the actress. Earlier in the month, Meghan opened up about their relationship to the media for the first time, telling Vanity Fair, "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." They also celebrated Harry's 33rd birthday mid-month and back on Sept. 3, Meghan reportedly finally met his grandmother, Queen Elizabeth II, according to Us Weekly. British tabloids have been having a field day with the romance as engagement rumors continue to ramp up — the Daily Express even claimed Meghan has already asked Duchess Kate to be her matron of honor! Now keep reading for more of the biggest celebrity love life stories from September 2017…
