Here is what The Gleaner knows: Tom Inskip is marrying his girlfriend of four years, Laura Hughes-Young. Inskip was one of the last of the bachelors in Harry's group of friends. All the others have become husbands with children, leaving Harry. He met Markle, who plays a leading role in the popular USA series Suits, and they have been dating for the past nine months.
