Never-before-seen childhood photos of Prince Harry's girlfriend Meghan Markle

The family of Prince Harry's girlfriend, Meghan Markle, have shared a never-before-seen family photo of the possible future princess posing in dungarees when she was just 14 years old. 

But the photo didn't come without a playful warning to the Prince. 

In an exclusive interview with the actress' older brother Thomas Markle and his 24-year-old son Tyler said Prince Harry had best not put a foot out of line with his new love because her very protective – and very burly – brother and nephew are watching out for her.

Thomas warned that if the party-loving prince, who is famous for his fondness of a drink or two, hurts their beloved 'Megs', he would have Tyler to deal with. 

The father and son also gave some interesting revelations, including that Meghan is great with children.

Tyler, who spent many happy childhood years with Meghan, says the fun-loving star – who is also a United Nations humanitarian – would make the ideal aunt for his potential future cousins-in-law, three-year-old Prince George and one-year-old Princess Charlotte. 

He predicts she'll get on especially well with the rambunctious future king, who adores feeding the ducks in the park near the Kensington Palace home he shares with Uncle Harry.

'She used to like to take us to the duck park,' recalls Tyler. 'We would feed the ducks and run to the park when she babysat [me and my brother Thomas].'

Meghan's family says that if Prince Harry was to propose to her, he would have to come and meet the Markle family in their hometown of Grants Pass, Oregon.

As rumors hit fever pitch that Harry, 32, is set to propose to the 35-year-old actress, who shot to fame as paralegal Rachel Zane on hit TV show Suits, the Markle men warn there's still one all-important step he'll need to take before he presents Meghan with a diamond ring.

'He'd have to come over and hang with us for a little bit,' says Thomas. Fun-loving Tyler, a partner in a flooring company who shares his aunt's dark good looks, enthusiastically adds, 'We'd take him jet-skiing, we live right on the river.'

The prince has also been officially invited to have his bachelor party in Grants Pass, as long as he can keep up with fun-loving the locals! 

Prince Harry is currently in Antigua, where he attended a charity event for children with severe mental and physical disabilities on his tour of the Caribbean.
