How can I make a columnheader in datagridview winforms merge and center like below so that it will look like "colspan = 2" in a table in html?

      Title 1            Title2      
col1      col2      col3      col4      col5
a      b      c      d      e
a      b      c      d      e
a      b      c      d      e
a      b      c      d      e

Title1 will be merged and centered  and will be the title of col2 and col3 and Title2 for the col4 and col5.

Can this be done? If no, are there any workaround I can do, and if yes, how do I do this?
