Later in the evening, the prince took his jacket and tie off and relaxed as he sat next to Miss Markle.

The famous actress put her arm around the fifth in line to the throne as they were seen laughing and holding hands at the table.

Harry 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.

His name was written as Harry Wales, a title that he still uses for military purposes.

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.

MEGHAN MARKLE WAS BACK IN JAMAICA TO CELEBRATE ANOTHER WEDDING

In September 2011, Meghan Markle married Trevor Engelson in Jamaica.

The pair tied the knot at the Jamaica Inn in Ocho Rios in front of about 100 guests.

The couple started dating each other in 2004 but split up two years after getting married.

Earlier this year, photographs emerged which were taken at the ceremony and showed the Suits actress taking part in a wheelbarrow race while wearing a yellow bikini.

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.

Explore the luxurious hotel hosting Prince Harry and Meghan Markle

Tom Inskip and Prince Harry have been friends since meeting when they both attended Eton College in Berkshire.

Mr Inskip, known as ‘Skippy’, was often photographed by Harry’s side when the pair went on holiday together.

In the summer of 2011, Skippy and Harry were pictured partying on the island of Hvar, off the coast of Croatia.

During that trip, the prince jumped into a swimming pool fully-clothed.

Meanwhile, Skippy was with Harry when photographs appeared to show the prince in a pool in Las Vegas without any clothes on.

Mr Inskip, who is two years younger than Harry, was also with him when the prince was spotted inhaling laughing gas at a party in 2010.

Meanwhile, the pair went on a skiing trip to Verbier, Switzerland, and they were reportedly seen throwing snowballs at passers-by when they on a balcony together.

And after their long history, Harry was given the important role of being an usher during Skippy’s wedding in Jamaica.

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.

A description on its website describes the hotel and villas as being ‘steeped in rich history’ and that it boasts ‘timeless elegance and true understated luxury’.

It reads: ‘Round Hill welcomes you with genuine Jamaican hospitality while captivating you at every turn.

‘We invite you to our 110-acre private enclave of luxury villas, boutique oceanfront rooms, award-winning seaside dining and an exquisite spa that lies nestled in a lush tropical hillside along a private bay of turquoise waters.

‘Here, guests become family, paradise is found, and experiences become lasting memories.’

ROUND HILL HOTEL AND VILLAS: JAMAICA’S CELEBRITY MAGNET

The bride and groom have hired out the super exclusive Round Hill Hotel and Villas to celebrate their wedding.

The private 110-acre resort was first built as a colony of cottages for the rich and famous during the 1950s.

John F. Kennedy and his wife Jacqueline spent their honeymoon there, while other celebrities including Bob Hope, Paul Newman and Ralph Lauren have also visited.

English author Ian Fleming was also a frequent guest at the resort during his time on the Caribbean island.

The hotel boasts 36 oceanfront guestrooms designed by Ralph Lauren as well as 27 private, luxury Jamaica villas.

Its guestrooms overlook Round Hill Bay and snorkeling reef and are just yards away from the hotel’s infinity pool.

The designer rooms have plantation-shuttered windows and balconies, while the bathrooms have walk-in showers and soaking tubs.

A variety of villas are on offer, which range from two to six bedrooms and can come with private pools and separate guest houses.

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.
