Is Meghan Markle in Chicago? It Appears So

Looks like royal-to-be Meghan Markle is spending a little pre-wedding time in Chicago. 

The Chicago Tribune reports Markle, a Northwestern University alum who is now engaged to Prince Harry, landed at O'Hare Airport Thursday morning. A photo obtained by the publication from a source showed someone looking like Markle wearing an all-black outfit with what appears to be a Sox hat.

The Tribune, citing sources, said Markle is slated to be in the city until Sunday evening. 

She appeared to have security from the Chicago Police Department, but not an actual escort, according to the report. 

Chicago Police, however, declined to comment on the matter, saying in a statement, "we do not discuss security protocols provided to dignitaries."

So why is Markle in Chicago? 

The Tribune didn't specify, but TMZ reported Markle was spotted entering the VFS Global UK Visa Application Centre where she was likely finalizing her application for a UK visa. 

Northwestern University did not immediately respond to a request for comment, but a spokesperson told the Tribune they were unaware of any plans for her to be on campus. 

Markle and Prince Harry announced their engagement in November and are slated to be married in Mat at St. George's Chapel in Windsor Castle.
